Thank you

Thank you to all who sent Dad healing energy!  He is up and walking and feeling much steadier!  I am hoping to get down to visit next month, and spend some quality time... The phone, although it is a connection, just isn't the same.  So... Thanks again and enjoy this sunshine! Hugs, Janet

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

Energy FLOWS where ATTENTION GOES.  This is a huge statement and so true! 
Source Energy has no judgement, it doesn't say this energy vibration is good and this vibration is bad (that's just humans who do that...).  Source Energy MATCHES your energy, and you create energy by placing your attention on anything - whether it is money (lack draws more lack, abundance draws more abundance), relationships (how bad is it?  How GOOD is it?), community (working together or against), the world (war, poverty, or joy).  The more "air time" you give to any given subject the stronger the vibration you send out to the Universe.  And that vibration is what is sent back to you.  Sooo, when you notice that you are talking about or thinking about how bad things are... complaining about your kids, your partner, your community, the news on TV... remind yourself that Energy FLOWS where ATTENTION GOES and CHANGE where you place your attention.  Have a mantra (saying) that resonates only good thoughts within your heart and repeat it - over and over and over again - until you feel the positive vibration and you can let go of the negative thought pattern.  My hope is that as we all grow and are exposed to many different thoughts, we remind ourselves about energy and how we create ALL that is in our lives!  Choose Joy - its a great vibration!

Sean has been here 25 years

Today is my eldest child's birthday...  Hard to believe that 25 years ago I was giving birth to this amazing energy being.  He has taught me many lessons about love and life (as have both my children) and especially grace and allowing others to create the life they desire and the life that makes them happy and whole. I am thankful for the gifts that he has helped me learn and look forward to many many many more years of experiences with him, my child who is now a man and a father and soon to be husband.  Yeah!

Diet Soda and the connection to autoimmune and other diseases

If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the label; 

From the WORLD ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on 'ASPARTAME,' marketed as 'Nutra Sweet,' 'Equal,' and 'Spoonful.' 

In the keynote address by the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001 there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.   It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was causing this to be rampant. 

This is the information that was discussed: ASPARTAME

When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants.   The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus. 

Many people are being diagnosed in error. 
Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is! 

Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. 

The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit.  He or she continues its use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition.  We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas. 

In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. 

This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia. 
During a lecture, it was said  'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from:  fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms,   shooting pains, numbness in your legs,  Cramps, Vertigo,  Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitus, Joint pain,  Unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you may have ASPARTAME poisoning!' 
Is it reversible?  Yes! Yes! Yes! 

STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for Aspartame on food labels!   Many products are fortified with it!  

Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates. 

It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight! 

These products also contain formaldehyde, which stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs. 

Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used primarily to preserve 'tissue specimens.'   Many products we use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store it IN our body! 

Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures that once free of the 'diet products' and with no significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an average of 19 pounds over a trial period. 

Aspartame is especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that some physicians, who believed that they had a patient with retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame.  The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. 
Thus diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance. Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE. 

Especially with diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing various levels of brain damage, Seizures, Depression, Manic depression, Panic attacks, Uncontrollable anger and rage. Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in non-diabetics as well. 

Documentation and observation also reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when these chemicals have been removed from their diet. 

So called 'behavior modification prescription drugs' (Ritalin and others) are no longer needed.  Truth be told, they were never NEEDED in the first place!   Most of these children were being 'poisoned' on a daily basis with the very foods that were 'better for them than sugar.' 

It is also suspected that the Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War, may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War Syndrome. 

Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects, i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception and during early pregnancy.   Children are especially at risk for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given artificial sweeteners. 

There are many different case histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this deadly poison.' 

Herein lies the problem: 
There were Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100 different products and strong objection was made concerning its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. 
The drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. 

Sadly, MONSANTO'S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED! 
There are now over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly chemical and there will be thousands more introduced.   Everybody wants a 'piece of the Aspartame pie.'  Isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others, the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic Association and the Conference of the American College of Physicians? 

This has been recently exposed in the New York Times. 
These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money from the food industry and are required to endorse their products. 


Please share this information with anyone whom you know that drinks diet products.

Workshops are happening!  The month of June starts the workshops here in the sanctuary...  We have advanced ARCH training and Simplified Astrology, then in July we have an international psychic coming to teach a workshop on divination decks and how to create spreads for them, then the next day she will be offering private readings.  We also have a dream workshop (which by the way is fabulous!  I have been taking the six week course and have learned so much about my dreams and how to use them to understand things in my waking life), and a sound healing workshop.  I am hoping Rhonda will offer her tarot series again since it was such a big success!
I am in discussion with a wonderful woman who will be getting back to me about a workshop / class in Wicca - I have learned so much from her in the last few months...  What a plethera of information she is!  We still have the womens gatherings on the second saturday of the month and may have them at one of our local parks for the months of July and August to enjoy the bountiful beautiful area we are so fortunate to live in!!
If anyone has ideas about things they would like to learn about, or they want to share information that they have, please let me know.  I am very open to creative teaching and I am making the space available to educate and elevate the consciousness of the community at large!

Healing and Psychic Day During Old Home Days

Every year, Groton holds a festival called "Old Home Days".   Approximately 1500 people attend each year and if the weather is nice, we can expect more.  

This year I am seizing the opportunity of having many people in town and I am organizing an alternative and complementary healing day.  I would like this to be good for the community and also good for those participating.

It will be on Saturday, August 15th and will be from 10am - 5pm.  

I am asking for a $10 donation to help cover the cost of the space for those who are not selling any products, but if someone is selling a product and will be making a profit I am asking that they donate $25.   

Here are some of the things that have come to me, and I would be open to any others that may come... 

If you, or someone you know, may be interested in participating, please let me know or send them to my website to contact me.  607-342-3310;

Thank you so much!

In the River

Seems like once a decision is made (regarding anything in your life) you then send out the vibrations to create exactly what it is you desire.  
I am witnessing this with Nance, who owns the gallery and has been on the fence about what and where she wants to be.  As soon as she made the decision to move to Bun Apetite Bakery on main street, all things started flowing again!  Her husband is putting in a new floor for her, her parents are doing the ceiling, and she has many many creative ideas about the walls.  What an honor to witness this amazing flow of energy, and such a reminder for me... once again I am reminded of the wisdom of the Hopi Elders:  Jump in the River, those that hold onto the edge (and all those who hold onto those who are holding on) thrash about mercilessly and suffer greatly, those in the river remain ALIVE!!  My hope is that YOU jump in the river, create the picture you desire and just do it... JUMP in the river!  All else will follow!

Beauty all around

As requested, sunshine today!!  I am amazed at the effect the weather has on me, and many others.  Generally I can "get up" even if the weather is down, but if I am in a funk because of working too much, not getting enough sleep, not drinking enough water, and not eating well then I have less control over my moods.  What a good reminder the last few days were for me.  So, my goal today is drink more water and even though I took a walk this morning, I am going to take another one tonight so that I get a good night sleep and have plenty of energy to stay grounded and centered!  Yeah!

Rainy Gray Day

I keep calling for sunshine, but the sun just seems to laugh and hide his face, and I am so needing a few of those warm rays to help me feel bright inside... Maybe this should just be a day of sleep and restoration for the heart and soul...  Maybe that's my message today...  Hoping for a drop of golden sun tomorrow!

Nice Girls

I have been giving a lot of thought to the term "nice girls".  I am reminded of so many sayings that were handed down like "nice girls don't do that",  "nice girls always smile and never talk back", "nice girls"...  With all of those sayings swimming around in my head it was hard to hear my own thoughts yesterday.  I had to speak my truth to someone whom I love very much and it made me very sad... and also hopeful that speaking my truth would open dialogue to where things need to be for both of us to be happy and thriving.  Before speaking my truth I had the nice girl sayings blocking the access to my heart and I kept feeling like... well if I were a "nice girl" I would wait and see how it goes, I would close my mouth because speaking may make this person whom I love very uncomfortable and I make have to take the risk of losing them.  But, if I kept being the nice girl and saying "everythings okay, I can wait till you make a decision" then I would continue to feel frustrated and edgy.  So I decided to make a new "nice girl" saying to replay and it is this:  "nice girls" always speak their truth and allow others to speak their truth also, even if someone else may be unhappy with the truth as I see it.  
There, now its out in the universe and it can breathe (and I can too!!).

Womens Gathering and the Band of Workers

First, let me apologize for not being "on-line" for the past three days...  SO many things coming to fruition - workshops, classes, circles, gatherings...  The workshops thus far have been fabulous - fun, informative and well presented!  Love when things fall into place!

So, now for the womens gathering...  We had a great gathering tonight and I shared lots of information about the history of the church.  And as you probably have heard, this church was "built" by 26 women who called themselves "The Band of Workers".  Some of our conversation tonight was about "wonderings" about them and the connection to the spirits here.  One of our members thought that possibly they are energy fragments that are waiting to be retrieved, which I found to be an interesting pondering!  Could this be why I am connecting with so many fabulous women?  Are their prior life energy fragments calling them back here?  Could be!  Sooo, while we talking about the Band of Workers one of the women suggested that I post their names and ask for information from anyone who might be connected to them...  I am excited to maybe learn more about their history and maybe even meet some decendents!  With that said, here are the names of The Band of Workers and I ask that if anyone has information about them, please contact me!

Updated photo for brochure

Today I spent a few hours updating my marketing material with the most amazing graphic artist (I believe) in this entire area!  She even did a new photo, and I actually like it...  So, I thought I would share (especially since I have my THIRD new haircut in the past month).
Enjoy the sunshine!  Janet

Mom, 75 years on this earth

My Dad is so cute...  He sent me (and all of my siblings) an email reminding me that next week is my Mom's 75th birthday.  He did this because ONE TIME, a few years ago, all four of us kids forgot Mom's birthday and she was so hurt.  I couldn't believe that we ALL forgot the day...  We didn't hear the end of that fauxpas for years.  So now I mark my calendar and I get a reminder every day for one week before the actual day so that I never forget again...  
The cute part is this...  My Dad loves my Mom so much (even after over 50 years of marriage) that the thought of her being forgotten breaks his heart.   They made it through raising four kids (and believe me, I was not the easiest child/teen), four grandchildren, job changes, money challenges, college expenses, moving and going through/cleaning out 50 years of "stuff" and they are still in love.  What a gift they have been to each other! 
 So, maybe I wear "rose colored glasses" but... they give me hope that someday I will be fortunate enough to feel/experience this commitment too!

Prayer, vibration of love and joy, healing to our Mother Earth

Below is an email I received from Center for Sacred Studies (The Grandmothers) and it inspired me to celebrate with them on Mother's Day.  I will open my space from 9am - 10am for anyone wishing to gather and send the vibration of Love and Joy to Mother Earth.  If you would like to bring a drum, feel free.  I hold no agenda, just an open heart and blessings for all who attend!
Be well, Janet
75% of Mother Earth's body is water, just as 75% of our body is water. The more vibrant the water, the more sustainable the life force...

Throughout the world on this Mother's Day, from New Zealand to Santa Cruz there is a simultaneous movement happening. Across the globe, individuals are creating intentions to share love and gratitude for the maternal life force, directly through waterways in support of all nature and our Mother Earth.  We are sending positive thoughts and intentin for healing the water throughout the planet as an act of respect and love for the Mother and ask you to please join us in this worldwide effort to honor and rejuvenate the water.

Wherever you are this Mother's Day 2009, please share a simple intention with Mother Earth. We suggest gathering as groups at any waterway or if you are not able to be at a waterway, you may do so over a small container of water on the dawn of Mothers Day, May 10th.

This event was co-created with the 
Waitaha Nation Grandmothers, and is supported by the Center for Sacred Studies and theInternational Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. 

We encourage each location to host a gathering to honor the mother in your area. Please post on 
Facebook, if possible, where and when your gathering will be held. If you'd like a flyer to send to your e-lists, please let us know and we will get this out to you.
