How a Small Shift In Energy Can Create a Huge Impact in Life

Each morning I receive an email message from Abraham (Esther Hicks) and a recent article she shared really hit home. This is what I learned (and knew at a soul level but the reminder is priceless.)

When we are saddened by the plight of another, be it financial, health-related, or perhaps due to the loss of a loved one, most of us find ourselves being drawn to respond in some way to ease their pain.

BUT if we respond in the same energetic frequency that is CAUSING the pain, we not only do not assist, we add to the misery. Let me explain.

power of our love

Say your friend is experiencing a period of low income and struggling to make ends meet. You would like to gift them $100 to help cover some bills. IF you make this offer seeing them in a state of lack, thinking for instance, "'Poor' Roberta is having some real hard times and needs me," you will only add to the state of lack. Alternatively, when seeing Roberta as worthy of all the abundance of the Universe (as are we all) your gift will be a true blessing in assisting her in realizing this Truth.

This same theory applies to all of the other 'imbalances' as well. If your friend is ill, do what you can to assist while seeing them in perfect, radiant health, the 'natural' state of our bodies. If they are going through a grieving period, gently be there allowing the grief while offering glimpses of the joy that will begin to resurface when they are ready.

It's but a slight shift in an energetic process to really 'get this' but the reverberation can be truly life changing.

To quote Abraham:

"Of course, it is a wonderful thing to help others, but you must do it from your position of strength and alignment, which means you must be in alignment with their success as you offer assistance, and not in alignment with their problem."

Seeing you in all of your innate perfection… open to the limitless gifts of this abundant Universe.



What is Iodine and Why Do We Need It?

(Excerpted from an article by Dr. Kae Thompson-Liu, Naturopath and teacher of alternative health options.)

IODINE is found in every cell in the body and USED FOR OVER 300 PROCESSES OF YOUR ENTIRE SYSTEM – EVERY CELL IN YOUR BODY USES IODINE! In autopsies of people over the age of 100, who died of old age with no disease:  the only common link was that iodine was found throughout their body!!

Since roughly 1980, iodine levels in the average person have fallen over 50%.  We have the largest rise in cancer now, especially thyroid cancer. 

Characteristics of Iodine:
1.  Antiseptic
2.  Antibiotic
3.  Antifungal
4.  Anti-parasitic
5.  Antibacterial
6.  Anti-carcinogenic agent
7.  Antioxidant
8.  Antiviral
9.  Antiproliferative agent (mammary gland) of or relating to a substance used to prevent or retard the spread of cells, especially malignant cells, into surrounding tissues
10.  Germicide
Where can you find Iodine as a supplement? (And why EnerG-Iodine is superior to other products)

Many iodine products are made from seaweed (usually purchased from Japan), salt loses iodine within 2 weeks of being opened AND the chloride in salt is a halogen which tries to take over the receptor sites of iodine!! EnerG-Iodine is made from the actual mineral Iodine (rock form).

Also while most products must go to the liver to be processed and digestive acids destroy most of the iodine leaving only iodide (which is utilized by only 20% of your body, not 100% like iodine).  This results in pressure on the digestive system and the liver. The MINERAL Iodine, however, is absorbed and utilized by the body immediately without going to the liver first  thereby availing itself to be utilized by our bodies in the most effective manner.

If you are interested in ordering EnerG-Iodine, please click here. (I will be placing an order within the next few days.)

Also, if you would like access to an article that Dr. Kae has written on Thyroid health, please email me and I will forward it to you.

Here's to glowing good health and energy to enjoy this beautiful life!

Come into the silence of you and tap into a place of knowingness and peace.

I’ve come to meditation for the very first time in my 70’s.  With Maureen guiding us into deep relaxation,  it comes fairly easily,  with a wonderful feeling of peace and calm.  Very, very good for any of us with a hectic “normal” life,  reminding us of what is possible. - M.S.
Maureen’s relaxation techniques and her provision of a meaningful meditation Mantra makes for a deep and enjoyable meditation experience. I appreciate the chance to attend only to myself and to only recognize the external world – but then let it go. - L.S.
