A Buck In the Back Yard - I Just Love Deer Medicine!

A white tail deer buck visits the back yard - deer medicine

It's amazing to me how many adventures one can have without ever even leaving home. I opened the door this morning to let my dog out and there was a beautiful buck standing not 10 feet from me. I guess he decided the clover was better inside the fence. LOL. I thought the dog would start chasing and we would have another war on our hands. She's had quite a few encounters with ground hogs. She didn't even bark. Instead the deer looked at me and just jaunted off, easily clearing the fence. Easy, graceful, not the least bit in a rush. Ah deer medicine ... how I love that energy!

Savoring the Diversity and Uniqueness of People From Various Cultures

I love little cities like Portland, OR. There are ethnic communities everywhere. And there are so many events and festivals downtown, that you get to see, smell, and taste things from the various cultures quite often. 

I love going places where various people are dressed in ethnic garb and all are enjoying an event together. 

One of the reasons I didn't enjoy the little all white upper middle class neighborhood I lived in just outside Toronto was its lack of diversity. Downtown Toronto is a completely different story of course. 

But the place I lived was a bunch of cookie cutter homes with everyone driving cookie cutter vehicles shopping at cookie cutter strip malls. Cookie cutter meaning they are all the same. It wasn't nearly diverse enough for me to enjoy. 

I'd much rather visit funky little stores or go to one of a kind restaurants. 

In Santa Fe, it was kind of fun being in a minority for awhile. Most of the community in my neighborhood was either Hispanic or Native American, some were a mix of both - all having lovely brown skin, eyes, and hair. Having lighter skin, eyes, and hair made me the odd one out. It took a bit of getting used to. 

Santa Fe has its own flavor of course. But even there, it was fairly unusual to see a person of African American heritage with their gorgeous deep darkly-colored skin. 

I tried to avoid the lower section of Cerrillos Rd. whenever possible. It looked like every other city with giant malls, chain stores and restaurant chains, etc. 

I love diversity and uniqueness.

Airlines Getting It Right ... Sometimes

I recently came across this deLightful story from KLM airlines about how they return lost items using an adorable beagle. I literally had tears of joy streaming down my cheeks as I watched the video.

It reminded me of another story I'd seen about a Canadian airline granting Christmas wishes to all the passengers on one of their flights.

And then there was this one ... which several of my Facebook friends assure me is impossible. You decide!

#1 Bestseller Dolphins & Whales Forever Book Tour with Takara

Hello Dear One:

I'm currently in Southern California as part of the Dolphins & Whales Forever #1 Bestseller Book Tour. I've written several blogs posts on Dolphin Ohana talking all about the tour, the people, the fun, the dolphins, the whales, the activities, the highs, the lows, and everything in between.

The first post is here:

WOW - Lots of Energetic Clearing Needed These Days by Takara

Lots of people take this time of year to do Spring Cleaning. They clean out the cob webs in their homes. Some go as far as rearranging furniture and throwing a bunch of things out. Its yard sale time in many neighborhoods.

Its also the time to start mowing the lawn, cleaning out and planting new flowers and vegetables, perhaps even clean out the garage or storage shed.

In addition to cleaning out the unwanted dirt and clutter inside and outside your home, it is definitely time to clear out the energetic dirt and clutter in your energy field, home, and business.

The last few days I've had lots of calls where people are just feeling stuck and fuzzy mentally. A little bit of confusion has been running rampant. As I work with people to clear out this disharmonious energy, I've been amazed at how long its been taking doing it with dowsing.

I clear energy using Pristine Clearing Mist if I'm with someone. Or dowsing if I'm not. Its much more powerful if two people do it together. Or if you are connected and both holding the same intention of clearing, even if only one is dowsing.

To dowse a place or space clear, obviously the pendulum system needs to be "programmed" to do such things ahead of time. Assuming that has already happened, you take the pendulum and start it swinging in a counterclockwise circle. Ask that whatever you are desiring to clear be cleared. And then watch as the pendulum continues to swing in a counterclockwise circle.

If you haven't done this in awhile, or if you have never done it, it can take quite awhile.

Eventually the circles will become smaller and eventually they stop. My pendulum always swings to "yes" when things are clear.

After clearing, you will want to flood the space with love, joy, peace, and all the other good stuff we use in the infusion step. Spin the pendulum clockwise when you do this and again watch as it continues and eventually comes to a stop or a "yes."  

Have a deLightful day,

P.S. This is just a tiny hint of what's in my upcoming book: The Dancing Dolphin Way of Pendulum Dowsing: The Fun, Fast, Highly Effective Method to Make Improvements in Every Area of Life While Fine-Tuning Your Intuition.

Manifesting the Simple Things with Divine Assistance by Takara

This article is the perfect example of getting divine assistance for manifesting whatever you need or desire.
I was on my way to Denver to teach a workshop and had a flat tire. I had driven up through Taos and continued on through Northern New Mexico. Then I headed east through southern Colorado. I'd just entered the only town I'd seen in over an hour and began hearing an awful noise emanating from my car.


I pulled into a 7-eleven and got out to assess the situation. As I walked around the car, I thought I would find the tailpipe dragging. Instead I found the back right tire, flat as a pancake.
As I entered the 7-eleven parking lot I noticed a Sheriff's car pulling in as well. I saw the Sheriff heading inside for a refill on his coffee. I told him my dilemma and asked if he could suggest a place that might help me out. We went into the store and he had the people behind the counter call several service stations.
It was nanoseconds after 5 p.m. on a Friday night in a little town that doesn't even have a McDonalds. None of the service stations were answering because they had all gone home for the night.
There was probably smoke coming out of my ears from the wheels turning so fast in my head trying to figure out why this situation was occurring and what I should do about it. Was it a lesson? Was I supposed to be delayed for some reason?
I was completely in observer mode. I knew that if I allowed myself to become upset by what looked like a very dismal situation, my personality would most likely be very unhappy with the outcome. In order to experience manifesting with divine assistance you have to remain calm and at peace - trusting that all is well in the world.
I only had one of those little donut tires as a spare and I was still over two hours from my destination. It was at least an hour to Colorado Springs where there might be assistance still available. But that meant I would have to have the car towed that far.
What other options were there?
Was I supposed to find a hotel and stay there for the night and get a new tire in the morning? That idea didn't appeal to me.
As the call ended to the last service station listed in the phone book with no one answering there either, I said to myself (and the Universe), "I need help here."
In less than one minute my "knight in shining armor" entered the store. He had on his uniform from the service station where he'd worked all day. It, like all the rest, was already closed of course. The people behind the counter, who had been making phone calls for me, explained my situation.
He called his boss. Then he changed my tire to the little donut and had me follow him to the service station where he worked.
His boss, his bosses' wife and their little girl met us there. They opened the shop for me and found a used tire just the right size. As the "knight" was putting on the tire, I asked the service station owner to prepare the bill so we could handle the money transaction and they could all go home.
He said, "That will be $20 even."
I just looked at him as if he was a Martian or something. In my mind I was thinking, "You must be kidding. It can't be $20. Tires don't cost $20. They cost $50 or $70. I've got my credit card right here. You guys opened up your shop for me. How can you possibly only charge me $20?" I was amazed to say the least.
I paid the $20 with a smile and gave a tip to "the knight." Then I headed off to Denver with a great story to tell my manifesting class the next day.
What was significant about the story?
What lessons did it offer?
In order to manifest with divine assistance you must:
1) Be very clear about what it is that you desire.
2) Feel what it feels like to have it.
3) Allow it into your experience - In other words, remain focused on your desire for it and NOT focused on the fact that you don't have it yet.
4) Have no attachment to "how" it will occur.
When I told the Universe what I wanted, it was amazingly clear. I felt with all certainty exactly what I needed, that I needed it now, and I never even considered that it might not be granted. I fully expected to receive what I asked for. I didn't say, "I'd like this if it pleases you." Nor did I say, "If it's in my highest and best interest I would appreciate some assistance."
It was all about the feeling. I never once allowed myself to fear anything about what I was facing. And I also didn't feel sorry for myself or feel frustrated with the way things were going. If I had any expectations about arriving at a certain time, I let them go as soon as I heard the noise. I moved instantly into "flowing with the moment" and seeing what the moment would bring.
The experience was exhilarating. I met all sorts of wonderful people who went out of their way to help a damsel in distress - the Sheriff, the 7-eleven personnel, the "knight," and the service station owner and his family.
In every life situation you have a choice. You can choose to experience life as a blessing and manifest with divine assistance. Or you can choose frustration, anger, or feeling like a victim. How you experience life is entirely up to you.
I trust that the next time you need some divine assistance, you will remember this story and it will help you in manifesting exactly what you need.

Nutrition & Herbs, Aromatherapy, & Flower Essences - Nature's Natural Healers

Plants are nature's healers.

Practically every vegetable you can imagine offers some beneficial nutrients that support the human body. The same is true of herbs. Yet what you get from broccoli is different from what you get by eating a carrot. Both are beneficial. Both are vegetables. Yet they are each unique and offer different forms of support for human health.

Essential oils used in Aromatherapy also come from plants. And each one, again, offers an entirely unique benefit to the human body. Peppermint helps with...

Flowing with Change

My father is in the hospital. He had a mini-stroke last week. His only remaining sibling (his brother), is in critical condition in a hospital about an hour away. People on Facebook have been offering their support.

I began to respond on Facebook about all the lovely and heart-felt words people were writing and then I realized what I have to share about this is much bigger than a message on Facebook.

Dealing with this situation, I'm a wee bit stressed with trying to ...

Things Happen for a Reason ~ Even Terrible Things by Takara

I very much believe that everything happens for a reason and that the Universe very definitely conspires on our behalf.  

Sometimes the things that happen seem truly horrible, as if life has been ruined, or "taken" prematurely, or something "should not" have happened. 

However, the older I get, the more I see how the things I thought were absolutely horrible became my greatest launching platforms for the most significant amount of personal growth. Some took significantly longer to heal from emotionally and sometimes even physically. But in the end, every single thing that I spent years being convinced were just flat out wrong and should have gone another way, I have eventually seen the gift. 

One of the most moving stories I ever heard about this idea of everything happens for a reason was ...
