In my September podcast I mentioned that I was working on an article about gluten and the small intestine (which I often refer to as the belly brain). The problem is that the more I learn about nutrition and the small intestine, the less I know.
So rather than give you a bunch of information that I have accumulated which may or may not be helpful for your physical health, I am going to do something different and point you to an interview series on gut health called “The Digestion Sessions“ that is launching on Sunday, November 9th.
I am familiar with several of the experts being interviewed in this series, and after watching the first pre-release video on the gut-brain connection, I feel very good about recommending this video series to you.
The way these kind of things work is that you sign up and get free access to all the videos for a certain amount of time, and the full video set along with some other bonuses is available to purchase. I already made my purchase, but remember that you can watch all the videos for zero charge. (Full disclosure: if you do purchase after clicking my link, I will get a commission.)
If you’ve been with me for any length of time, you know I don’t promote things often, but after you watch the first video with Dr Kharrazian, I think you’ll understand why I am excited for all of us to learn this information.
This link will redirect you to their website where you can sign up to receive the videos:
Here’s to happy belly brains!
p.s. Biological bodies are all different, and what works for one person may not work for another. In this day and age, diet has become more divisive than religion, so please do not post comments like, “I’m doing the ______ diet / regimen, and everyone else should be doing it too because ______.” or, “If people aren’t eating _______ they are killing the planet/themselves/etc.”
It used to be common knowledge in consciousness circles that a person needed to be grounded both energetically and physically. People would talk about what foods helped them feel the most grounded, how spending time in nature helped them ground their meditative experiences and so on. However, I have noticed a trend in the last few years where people are getting very ungrounded, and are even encouraging others to engage "spiritual" practices that are very ungrounding. (Spell check says "ungrounding" is not a word, but I say that it is. )
Two of the adverse consequences of being ungrounded are that it can cause a person to be too easily swayed by the opinions of others, as well as be fooled by any of the many deceptions in our world. These are reason enough to put a consistent, daily focus on being fully present in your body and powerfully grounded to Earth's core. I could go on and on about the pitfalls and dangers of being spacey, ungrounded, partially out of body, etc but I will leave that aside in the interests of keeping this article short.
First, Get Into Your Body!
Many people are chronically partially out of their body due to a variety of conditions, some of which include: unhealed past physical or emotional traumas, living out of contact with the earth (cities, apartments, etc), doing "out of body" meditations, excessive daydreaming, unwillingness to confront the darker aspects of the subconscious mind, excessive use of alcohol or other drugs, over-consumption of television and other forms of digital entertainment, too much "cleansing" / calorie-restrictive dieting, and more.
The "Higher Self Meditation" in the Self-Clearing System puts a focus on bringing your own Inner Light back down into your body because most people are literally floating above themselves energetically. A repeated focus on seating your energy in your heart center helps you to be truly IN your body. Keep in mind that the "Higher" Self is only deemed that because so much of our Sovereign Self is floating above the body instead of residing within it.
Being fully present in the body can take a while, depending on how habitually disconnected and ungrounded a person has been in their life. Centering our energy in our heart center is the first, most basic step to restoring our full presence in the body, so that we can then get grounded.
Get Your Feet On the Ground
Even if you live in a dense urban environment, there will be parks and other places where some nature still exists. Seek out those places and put your bare feet onto the grass, dirt, sand, etc. While you're there with your feet on the ground, do the simple grounding meditation below and walk around for a bit.
This one is so simple that many people totally overlook it, or they prefer to plug in a "grounding pad" and call it a day. I have nothing against grounding (aka "earthing") devices, but they cannot replace the value of being barefoot on the ground. Swimming in natural bodies of water, walking barefoot on the beach and hiking in natural settings are also good ways to directly, energetically connect to the earth. If you are hiking in boots, stop often and touch a tree or plant with your bare hands.
Connect Your Heart to the Heart of the Planet
Through the process of energetically connecting our heart to the heart of the planet, we get deeply grounded in a very powerful, stable way. To me, this is the most potent form of grounding, although it works best when used in conjunction with the above steps. However, don't let the fact that you are in a high rise building, or that it is too cold outside to put your bare feet on the ground stop you from doing the simple process described below. It can be done anywhere, even if you are flying in an airplane.
Before we get to the process, I want to mention the curving energy lines used here. While it is more simple to visualize a straight line of energy, I have learned that curving lines of energy are more natural and more aligned with our foundational reality as Sovereign extensions of Source than straight lines of energy, which tend to be more mechanistic and synthetic.
Again, I could go on at length here, but I will keep it brief and use a picture to serve as a visual aid for this concept.
My Simple, Daily Grounding Focus.
• Close your eyes and take some slow, deep breaths. Center yourself in the present moment.
• Focus on your heart and visualize the energy of your Sovereign Inner Self growing large and bright.
• Send a beam of gently curving energy out of the left side of your chest that goes downward into the earth.
• Visualize this energy gently curving in a long elliptical arc, eventually connecting into the left side of Earth's core.
• As you make this connection to Earth's core, mentally (or out loud) say to the Earth, "Hello and thank you for supporting my human experience." (It can be anything with heartfelt gratitude.)
• Visualize another curving line of energy emanating from the right side of Earth's core, gently curving up to eventually connect into the right side of your chest.
• Spend a few moments enjoying the feeling of connecting and synchronizing your heart center to the heart of the planet.
• State your intention to keep yourself fully, deeply grounded and connected into Earth's core.
• Open your eyes and go on about the rest of your day in this deeply grounded state.
I highly recommend that you repeat this several times during the day whenever you have a spare moment. It only takes a couple of minutes, and with practice over time you will be able to maintain this connection throughout your day. Even if you are 20 stories up off the ground in an apartment or office building, you can still do this simple process. In fact, it is even more important to do so in that type of environment than if you're a woodland hobbit kind of person like me.
Grounding Physical Exercises
Ideally, when you are walking, standing or sitting barefoot on the grass (and after you have connected your heart center to the heart of the planet), you can do some physical exercise that will help you get more connected to your body. Again though, if you can't be in direct contact with the ground, you can still do some grounding physical exercise. This can be just about anything that you like to do, provided that it does not make you feel "spacey" or too light-headed.
For example, those who are familiar with a set of exercises called the "Five Rites" could do those movements, but I strongly recommend that you omit the first spinning movement, at least for a while. This is because spinning can create a spacey, out of body feeling, especially in a person that is already ungrounded. Do the other exercises first for a while, then slowly, very slowly, add in a little bit of spinning. Just make sure to ground yourself after the spinning portion, and if it takes too long, do less spinning (or none) next time.
If you are into yoga, do a combination of easy and mildly-challenging movements, but omit any extended pranayama at first, for the same reasons as omitting the spinning. If you are not into any of the above, just do some planks, push-ups, bodyweight squats, go hiking, or anything else you enjoy doing, making sure that you stay within your body's limitations. Pushing the body too hard while exercise can also be ungrounding, so if you feel your body asking for a rest, then rest!
A Grounding Diet
While I don't think a "perfect diet for all humans" actually exists, I have found that incorporating organic root vegetables and organic greens into a calorie-dense diet can help with efforts to get fully into the body and be grounded. The root vegetables are pretty self-explanatory, they grow underneath the ground, and they help pass along some of that groundedness to us when we eat them.
Greens are grounding due to their mineral content, but I must stress the importance of combining root vegetables and greens with calorie-dense foods. Any type of caloric restriction can be very ungrounding for a person, even when the diet is high in micronutrients, so it is important to have both micronutrient density and caloric density in one's diet.
This means eating things like rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes (hey, those are root vegetables, too!), avocados, eggs, coconut oil, butter, other dairy products and (real) honey regularly. It can even mean having some ice cream once in a while (yay!). Organic is always preferable, but don't stress out over having a perfect diet, as that stress is worse than eating non-organic food.
Also, put as much (natural) salt on your food as you want. Salt could take up a whole article on its own, but the short version is that natural, minimally processed salt is good for you, so don't restrict it. (Himalayan salt, Redmond "Real" salt, Celtic sea salt, etc.)
Just for clarity: Please do NOT just eat root vegetables and greens, because you will not have enough caloric density to support a strong metabolism, and you will end up ungrounded, hungry and feeling cold all the time without sufficient calories. For those of you who eat meat, try to get organic / grass-fed whenever possible. Those of you who don't eat meat will need to make sure you are getting plenty of calories from other sources.
Awareness is the Key
The main key to being energetically present in your body and grounded is awareness and being conscious of how you feel as you move through life. These are a few indicators that you are not fully present in your body and ungrounded: Feeling spacey, difficulty focusing on one task, easily losing track of conversations when others are talking, misplacing your keys/phone/spouse/child/dog/etc, poor coordination, forgetting something that happened just moments ago, etc.
If you notice any of those things happening, or anything else specific to you that you know is an indication of being unpresent / ungrounded, get tuned into your Sovereign Self via your heart center and connect your heart to the planet's heart via the simple process above.
If you can incorporate the physical grounding practices into your daily life as much as possible and do your energetic grounding work, you will notice many positive benefits including an increase in your capacity for holding and utilizing energy in your body. This will allow you to do more intense types of energy-work without getting ungrounded in the process.
I hope the information and techniques in this article are helpful for you. I thank you for your support, presence and attention. For those of you who have emailed me and didn't receive a reply, please know that I do read every email, but I cannot reply to them all, and I am currently backlogged on email replies by almost a week.
I have been absent from the blog due to being extremely busy with a full session schedule, as well as a large amount of email. Because of this big workload, today’s post is going to be a mini-blog on a subject that could easily require a very long article: Electro Magnetic Frequency and Radio Frequency mitigation.
I hope that you are already aware of the fact that the multitude of wireless devices in use today emit harmful radio and electro-magnetic frequencies. If not, just Google “cell phone dangers” and start reading. The more sensitive your body and nervous system is, the more you will feel the negative effects of cell phones, wireless routers, cordless phones, “smart” meters, etc in your home. We all suffer from the transmissions of these devices, whether or not we notice their harmful side-effects.
The purpose of this short article is to inspire you to take action to reduce your exposure to these frequencies by sharing with you what I have done in my own home.
Elimination and Reduction
Technically, I started this process over 15 years ago by getting rid of my microwave oven. I don’t even think about that any more, it’s just part of life for me now.
My more recent mitigation efforts began with turning off the wireless feature on my router. This means that ALL computers in the home are connected directly to the router via Ethernet cables. Any laptop usage is done with the laptop on a table or desk so that it is not directly on a lap, and the wireless on the laptop is disabled, of course.
Next, I removed all cordless phones and replaced them with corded phones. It’s like the 80s all over again, but with better hair. Seriously though, going back to land line phones reduced a huge amount of RF pollution in our home. I know a lot of you reading this probably don’t even have a landline anymore and you rely totally on your cell phone. I urge you to get a landline again with a corded phone and turn the cell phone OFF when you are at home. (Yes, totally off…I promise it will be ok.)
I recommend using your cell phone as little as possible. I have a cell phone that is always off unless I need to make a call while I am away from home. This is the only usage that it receives.
Also, if you live in a place with a “smart” meter, move. Seriously. If that is not an option, look into ways to shield yourself from the (not so) smart meter starting with this video.
Finally in the elimination process, I got rid of all compact fluorescent light bulbs and replaced them with standard incandescent bulbs. CFLs produce much more dirty electricity than a standard bulb, they actually wear out faster in normal on and off usage, and pose a variety of health risks. (LED bulbs are also a good option, as they do not produce much dirty electricity.)
The best thing I have done all year was to invest in “Microsurge Filters” for our home’s electrical outlets. Yes, I know it’s only mid-February, but this has had a huge impact in our home. These devices filter out high-frequency EM waves from the electrical wiring in the walls, drastically reducing levels of harmful EMF in a home. This was a significant expense, but it was worth the cost.
When doing this type of mitigation, the first thing needed is a “Microsurge Meter” that plugs directly into an outlet and gives a reading of the “Graham-Stetzer Units” in the power line. This is a measure of the magnitude of the voltage surge on the line. Higher numbers on the meter are bad, lower numbers are good.
A “typical” high reading would be in the 500-600 GS unit range, and with proper filtration, it should be under 50, with 25 being the ideal level. The readings in my home were 800-1100 depending on location in the house, and it took 25 filters to get readings on all sockets down in the 25-40 range. My office alone took five filters to mitigate, and the bedroom required four.
Thanks to these filters, we went from a very bad EMF environment to a very clean one. Now our home in the woods really feels like it is in the woods! It feels like being in a remote location where there is no electric power at all.
My wife and I both noticed the effect right away, and I can assure you that it was not a placebo. I honestly didn’t expect to feel a tangible effect at all, but these filters made a huge difference. The best analogy I can give is that it was kind of like the sense of relief that one feels when a noisy refrigerator stops running, except that it was EMF based, not sound based.
I purchased “Greenwave Filters” along with the Stetzerizer Microsurge Meter from this e-bay store. I talked with Neil, the owner of the store before the purchase and he was very helpful in answering my questions as well as resolving a shipping glitch with his supplier after my purchase. I interacted with him as a normal customer, and I didn’t tell him that I might send a bunch of business his way if I was happy with the products, so I can honestly say that his level of customer care was excellent. I negotiated a lower price by buying the filters in bulk, and he was very helpful throughout the whole process, but I didn’t receive any special treatment.
The Greenwave filters are a fairly recent design, marketed as being more effective than the Stetzerizer filters, which I tested myself comparing both filters in one plug, and the Greenwave filter gave a slightly lower reading on the Stetzer Meter than the Stetzer filter did. The GW filters also have a pass-through plug in the bottom of them so that you do not lose a plug to the filter, unlike Stetzer filters.
I also have a grounding mat for use at my computer desk. I honestly do not notice a difference from the grounding mat, but I think it is worthwhile since my computer and monitor are generating EMF fields.
That is where my mitigation process stands as of now, although I will also be replacing all dimmer switches in the house with regular switches, as dimmers generate a LOT of dirty electricity, even if the dimmer is set to maximum. I verified this with my own testing on an outlet controlled by a dimmer switch. See item #7 on this page for more.
There are many more mitigation products out there that can be purchased and attached to a cell phone, cordless phone, router, etc. I cannot speak for the efficacy of any of those products, but even if you do use them I urge you to follow the simple plan laid out in the “Elimination and Reduction” section above so that you are using the least amount of wireless devices possible.
Feel free to comment below with the names of any mitigation devices that you have found effective. Please avoid posting a URL, as that will get hung up in moderation until someone can get to it.
On Monday, March 14th I sent out an email about the potential for radiation from the Japanese reactor problems coming to the U.S. as well as the importance of meditating in order to stay calm in the face of chaotic circumstances.
When you are meditating, I also ask you to send blessings to the people of Japan, including the 10,000+ people that lost their bodies in this event.
I want to emphasize that in spite of what the media is putting out, there is NO guarantee that toxic radiation will be blown across the U.S. and all over the world like some people are reporting. Hysteria (fear) does not solve anything. Staying calm and preparing for what *may* come does solve many situations before they can become major problems.
On Monday, the only recommendation for physical protection that I could make in good conscience was to take potassium iodide to protect the thyroid from radioactive iodine. This is because there is a lot of questionable information about which foods and supplements really do help the body to deal with radiation.
I have been doing diligent research into the best nutrition and supplementation protocols to use for overall health and detoxification for years. On March 11th I started focusing on protocols for protection from radiation, just in case it was needed.
The good news is that there is a tremendous amount of “overlap” in regards to the foods and supplements that strengthen our bodies and immune systems and the substances that allow the body to deal with radiation. In fact, you may already be taking some of the supplements that I recommend below.
In this letter, I am going to recommend supplements that can be taken for overall good health as well as radiation protection and detoxification, so that even if you never get any radiation exposure more than an airplane flight, you can still benefit from these substances.
Before I get into the specific supplements, I want to stress the importance of determining the dose that you need to take via muscle testing. Muscle testing is simply accessing your body’s own intelligence to find out if a supplement or food is good for your body.
It is beyond the scope of this message to properly explain muscle testing, so for now I will recommend that you google “finger muscle testing” for more information on this very useful method of testing what you put into your body.
On to the list…
Here is a list of herbs, supplements and foods that I recommend you purchase now to have on hand in case radiation reaches your area. If you don’t need them for radiation protection, they will also help improve your overall physical health tremendously.
I am listing websites that I personally have purchased from whenever possible, but I am not affiliated with any of these sites in any way, and I do not make money from your purchases.
Zeolites are volcanic minerals with a unique honeycomb-like structure that helps trap toxins and remove them from your body in the bound state so that they cannot be reabsorbed. Zeolites were given to Chernobyl children to help them detox from radiation poisoning.
There are a LOT of sites selling zeolites, and I have personally found that liquid formulas did not do anything for me, so I recommend a powdered form. I would have recommended this on Monday, but I did not have first-hand experience with a good brand of zeolite. However, both of these appear to be good micronized zeolite products.
I have not purchased from the zeohealth website before, but I spoke with the owner, and he sounded very sincere and passionate about the quality of his product. For a major detox, including radiation detox, he recommends 1 measured teaspoon taken 3 times per day for 3 months, but no more. One bottle of the Zeolite Pure product will last 1 month at that dose. However, ZeoForce in the first link has a better price.
This amazing substance has the highest concentration of chlorophyll available anywhere on the planet and is a wonderful detoxification agent. This is the brand that I use, and since it is made in Japan, it may not be available for much longer: http://www.iherb.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Yaeyama-Chlorella-1-Kilogram-Powder-1000-g/147?at=0
I recommend taking 1tsp per day and increase by 3-4 times if you are exposed to radiation. (Please muscle test to find your body’s specific dosage)
This is still on the list, but I recommend taking 2 drops per day for now (double the lable dose), then move up to 10-15 drops per day or more if you are exposed to radiation, and stop taking it as soon as radiation exposure has dropped.
Large iodine doses can be hard on the thyroid for prolonged periods of time, and if you are on thyroid medication, you should probably NOT take any iodine supplement for more than a day or two.
Other good, natural sources of iodine are Kelp and other sea vegetables. Just be aware of how much iodine you are ingesting so you don’t take too much and stress your thyroid.
This is one of the best immune system supporting substances that I have ever seen. It is a truly amazing probiotic drink that will strengthen your immune system tremendously. You can buy (unsweetened) commercial varieties to start drinking now, but I recommend that you google “buy kefir grains” to get your own living kefir culture (known as a “grain”), so you can make your own kefir at home with (preferably) raw milk from grass-fed cows or goats.
Beneficial bacteria are the heart of your immune system. If you can’t find kefir in your area, look for probiotic rich foods like raw sauerkraut, kombucha, coconut “kefir” or at least take a good quality probiotic supplement at 2-3 times the recommended dosage. You can’t really overdose on probiotics.
Vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants
Vitamin D3 (Huge immune booster): http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Vitamin-D-3-2-000-IU-240-Softgels/16272?at=0
Minerals for men: http://www.mineralifeonline.com/pd-balanced-man-16oz.cfm
Minerals for women: http://www.mineralifeonline.com/pd-balanced-woman-16oz.cfm
Fulvic acid: http://www.mineralifeonline.com/pd-fulvic-trace-32-floz.cfm
Himalayan Salt, Real Salt, Celtic Sea Salt
These natural, healthy salts can help your body to detoxify from unhealthy iodine, bromine, chlorine and other substances. Yes, this salt is GOOD for you! Table salt that you find in supermarkets is NOT good for you. Please don’t confuse the two. I get my Himalayan salt here: http://www.saltworks.us/shop/product.asp?idProduct=373
Ok, that’s everything for now…and I know it is a lot. Please start accumulating these items now. Having them on hand and not needing them for an emergency just means you can take them to improve your health. It’s an all around big win for you, I promise.
It is my hope that radiation never makes it to you or your loved ones. However, the substances above will help your body deal with *any* stress that life has to offer, including potential radiation.
Knowing that you are prepared will help you to stay calm. Your calmness will help your family to be relaxed.
Please continue to meditate whenever you have a spare 5 or more minutes, and remember that Love is all that really matters in this life. When your journey in this body is done, the Love that you shared will be your most precious memories.
On March 8th I posted about time compression and the increase in “change” that would come about, starting on March 9th. It didn’t take long for this increase in energetic pressure to manifest itself as a devastating earthquake/tsunami in Japan. (Natural or not, we now have to adapt to this circumstance…)
As the tragedy in Japan continues to unfold, two nuclear reactors have exploded so far, with a third one apparently in “partial meltdown” according to reports.
For my subscribers in Japan reading this email: Please get as far away from all nuclear facilities as you can, preferably to the west to avoid radiation fallout.
If you are in the U.S. on the west coast, as I am, I recommend you do two things:
#1: Meditate more often throughout your day, even if it is only for 5 minutes. Take that time to connect to your Higher Self and breathe the light from your expanded being into your body. This is the best “protection” you can give yourself from the stresses that are accumulating in the world at this time.
(This recommendation is actually good for everyone, everywhere, at just about any time provided that you do not need to move away from an immediate danger.)
#2: Start taking a natural Potassium Iodide (KI) supplement to protect your thyroid gland from “radioactive iodine” that MAY be heading our way from Japan.
I say *may* because it is unclear how much radiation is being released, how high it is going into the atmosphere, and how the winds will carry it. We may get next to no fall-out here, we may get enough to cause severe thyroid problems for many people, or it may fall somewhere in between.
I keep KI on hand as a supplement, usually taking a 1-2 drops 2-3 times per week. My wife and I are going to take 2 drops on a daily basis as a precaution while we carry on with life. I get KI from this website (I have no affiliation with them) http://www.totalsupplement.net/shop/index.php?shop=1&itemid=2695
Adaptability to change is what allows a species and individuals to survive and thrive through difficult situations.
I have no doubt that our species will survive this latest assault on our environment. The only question is: Will *you* thrive?
I want to see you thrive.
I want to see you transcend fear.
The prescription is simple: Meditate more often, and give all fears to your Higher Self.
Then take the physical precaution of giving your thyroid “good” iodine for a while until we can see what the end result of the Fukushima event will be.
In Love and good health,
I hope you’re doing well and navigating the currents of change as fluidly and gracefully as possible.
Despite the enormous amount of change we have experienced in the last few months, we are about to enter a new phase of dramatic, rapid changes for ourselves as individuals and collectively as a society.
The next big frequency shift happens tomorrow, March 9th with the start of the Mayan “Ninth Wave” or “Universal Underworld.” The details of this are a little too complex to discuss in this message, but the underlying tone of this period that lasts until October 28, 2011 is that time will be compressing (speeding up) 20 times faster, which means that we will experience 20 times more change in these upcoming months than we have in the last 12 years.
Yes, that’s a lot of change compressed into a very short amount of time, so it is imperative that we be ready, willing and able to clear as much of our false beliefs, limiting programming and unconscious guilt as we can in order to make this ride as smooth as possible for ourselves and our loved ones.
One of the biggest hurdles I have been seeing for people lately is that their physical body isn’t able to change as quickly as their mental and energetic frequencies. This can create a whole host of unpleasant physical symptoms, and what is often referred to as “Ascension Syndrome,” which can be eliminated or greatly reduced with proper nutrition, hydration and detoxification.
Strengthening your body’s organs, glands, hormonal systems, muscular-skeletal system, nervous system, elimination systems, etc has a profoundly positive effect on how well you integrate the new energies that we are all required to embody to reach an ascended state of consciousness. We cannot leave the body behind in this process. It must be brought along for the ride.
I have helped about a dozen one-on-one clients dramatically improve their physical health with relatively easy to implement dietary changes, and I have been repeatedly prompted to share these physical health protocols with a wider audience.
So I need to hear directly from you to find out if you might be interested in a comprehensive, digital download audio/video/pdf product that details step by step instructions for raising your body’s health to a level beyond what you thought was possible. It won’t be free, but it won’t be expensive, either.
(The online poll for this is closed, but please leave a comment below if you want.)
If there is enough interest, I will get to work on putting the whole package together. Please be patient, as it’s going to take a while to get it all produced, edited, etc.
With all the best wishes of abundant health and much love,
