One More about the War

Hi Again,

I’m on a tangent from health-related matters, sort of, to talk about this whole Ukraine & Russia scenario. But maybe it’s not a tangent. There IS such thing as spiritual healing, and spiritual evolution. Through that lens, I suppose war IS on-topic for a website concerned with healing.

I chimed in with the following comments today under someone else’s Linkedin post, and figured I’d share it right here, too:

“Very few people here in the USA ever said a word against abuse of military power when the USA started wars (not too long ago). We like to pretend the USA is the only country on Earth without a corrupt government. It’s such a narrow, one-sided, dangerous, hypocritical philosophy. For those of us who have ALWAYS been anti-war, recognizing how it only serves the global elite, this is hard to watch. Again. As long as average men and women continue to take sides with willingness to do murder, we will repeat history. So no, it never matters who “the aggressor” is. It’s you. and you. and you. It’s all of us. Murdering on behalf of politicians and bankers. If you don’t see it yet, you are not ready to understand this post. Send food. Send love. Don’t ever send weapons.”

Take Care, God Bless!

I’m Still Pro-Military (and still Anti-War)

As we sit on the edge of yet another armed conflict between nations, let’s express a seldom-spoken yet often felt Sense of Knowing.

Like most people, I happen to view military personnel as heroic because they’re “willing to die for their country”.

For as long as that continues to be our only belief, we’ll continue to tacitly and tragically accept and subconsciously encourage war- with all the death & trauma it entails.

So I also observe the historical evidence that military personnel are routinely coerced into murdering strangers to prop up international business interests. This is possibly the worst imaginable abuse of humankind’s willingness to serve a greater cause.

And so while I honor the sacrifice made by fighting forces worldwide, I do so by vehemently denouncing war as the last resort it truly ought to be.

And for the record, a lot of us were protesting war over twenty years ago, when the USA was the obvious aggressor. It’s eye-opening to see how many Americans- who were deadly silent about The Atrocity We Call War back then- are now suddenly very vocal against it, now that Russia is the apparent culprit. It sure is nice to hear your outcry now. Where the hell you been hiding? Can we count on you next time? Or is this just about popularity and going with the flow? Yeah, I’m calling you out, but only because deep down, I believe in you. Otherwise I wouldn’t waste my time.

Take Care & God Bless…the Ukes, the Russians, the Corrupt Politicians (may the light cleanse or clear as needed), and everything else, always.

Open Letter to People Pretending to be Anti-War (because it’s popular right now on social media)

Apparently, Russia has attacked many targets across Ukraine. That much seems to be true.

Once again the mainstream media has been caught misrepresenting reality.

See here, here, here, here, and here for a sampling.

It’s tough to know what’s actually going on when it comes to war or anything else- especially overseas- because the news is so full of shit. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of independent outlets are full of shit, too. It’s just that the mainstream media delivers its BS with such an air of credibility and coordination that their lies and omissions are arguably far more dangerous to society.

Regardless of the actual truth of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, a lot of people are expressing their sympathy for Ukrainians on social media this week.

That much is good to see.

Even on LinkedIn, where political commentary is typically sparse, there are every manner of “support Ukraine” posts floating around. Some people are sharing links to fundraising campaigns.

It’s wonderful to see people here in the USA expressing interest in Peace.

Strike while the iron’s hot, they say. So let’s do some soul searching:

Next time the USA invades a country, will the voices of Americans suing for peace in Ukraine today emerge again with the same heartfelt concern for those being attacked?

Or are we judging Russia against a standard we ourselves will forever refuse to uphold?

It’s hard to envision a world where the people who attack an effectively defenseless nation with nothing more than vague accusations serving as justification are the good guys…right?

You guys are talking the talk.

Moving forward, let’s walk the walk.

Nine Year Old Girl Arrested in NYC for Not Showing Her Papers

photo of girl being arrested
An open letter to Police, Military, and all other current & former Law Enforcement:

Lots of you are doing phenomenal work every single moment. Thank you.

Meanwhile, the NYPD apparently just arrested a nine year old girl (video link) for going to a museum without showing her papers. “Just following orders” and “just upholding the law” is no excuse at this pivotal time. Do you know what they called that sort of thing in Germany, 1939?

Well, they probably just called it “Good policing”.

Perhaps those of you who have connections in New York (and still have any balls at all; it’s an old expression) will put pressure on NYPD to end this madness before it spreads.

I’m not ignoring all the great work you do. I’m asking you to step up and LEAD one more time….if you haven’t tired of it already.

Silence is complicity.

Oh, and if you don’t understand why this is immoral to the Nth degree, head over to my videos, articles, or even the notorious Workaround Page. Scroll down to find information on so-called “COVID vaccine” safety. If you’re too pressed for time, at least look at the first graph at this web page. Prepare yourself. It’s not pretty.

A Short & Sweet Daily Mantra

This little morning mantra was delivered during a Reiki session. It offers a daily boost for anyone working in the healing arts, medicine, counseling, therapy, or any other profession in service to others. Best served with coffee or tea!

“For one more day, I offer my hands and heart as a perfect and true extension of God’s Love.  I do this gratefully and faithfully, setting aside every fear, releasing all doubt”.

[[Not looking for a mantra that uses the word “God”? You can instead say, “Universal Love” or “Unconditional Love”. Make it your own.]]

And that’s the crux of it. Personally, I may close out this particular mantra with the repetition, “I am, I am, I am”.


“For my highest & best, and for the highest & best of All. So it is.”

How to use this mantra:

Speak this mantra each morning to acknowledge you won’t be facing your day alone. (Not even close!)

When we affirm our connection with a higher power (aka Source, aka God), we accept our gifts while letting go of everything outside our control.

Sometimes as healers, we forget to consider our own needs. When you say this mantra, remember to feel that beautiful Love expanding inward…not just outward!

Five Reasons to Love Reiki

Five Reasons to Love Reiki

1) Relaxation

If there’s one thing everyone agrees on about Reiki, this is probably it:

We leave feeling refreshed, relaxed, and renewed! Most people who hop off the table say something like, “Wow…I feel so peaceful”, or “This is the most relaxed I’ve felt in years”.

For some people, this deep relaxation alone seals the deal. There’s that movie quote, “You had me at hello“.

For others, relaxation is just the beginning.

2) Reduced Pain

Incredibly, Reiki reduces physical and emotional pain.

Crush your hand with a heavy object at work? Try Reiki, and you may be amazed (yes, speaking from personal experience here!).

And if you’re grappling with a sense of loss or despair you just can’t seem to shake? Good news there, too.

A triangle with sides labelled "physical", "emotional", and "spiritual".
We are physical, emotional, and energetic beings.

Every emotion we experience is tied to our energy system. By releasing energies of loss, hopelessness, sorrow, and regret, we can allow the expansion of Gratitude and other higher vibrational energies. When we combine Reiki with mindfulness (conscious exploration of our own mental processes), we can shift our emotional state toward Joy.

3) Expanded Self Awareness

Reiki gives us insight into our own thought processes, physical habits, and energetic patterns so we can:

  1. accept ourselves fully; or,
  2. choose to change.

It also helps us build faith by reminding us we’re all connected…to the loving source of all things.

You are never alone.

We are one.

In this way, our self-awareness, self-trust, and our faith are tied closely together.

Reiki is not a religion…phrases like “the Loving Source of all” is about as dogmatic as it gets! Notice how you can apply this phrase, “the Loving Source of all” to most- if not all- of the religions on the planet, and it fits. Reiki is religion-neutral. Yet at the same time, we can view it as a form of prayer or communion. Meanwhile, an atheist might view Reiki as similar to acupuncture without the needles; a purely physical, mechanistic phenomenon. And so be it! The truth is truly a matter of perspective.

4) Heightened Perspective

Just as Reiki helps us understand our selves, it also helps us relate to others. When we acknowledge one another’s motivations, limitations, talents, and virtues- when we focus on accepting ourselves and each other the way we are– we’re far less likely to judge people unfairly, become frustrated, or grow impatient.

This changes everything about our important relationships.

“Heightened perspective” also includes the way we perceive the events of our own lives (past, present, & future). Reiki enables us to take a wide view of the path we’ve chosen to travel. We learn to see things from a place of optimism, gratitude, faith, trust, and abundance.

This is one of many ways in which this practice expands our sense of Peace.

5) As a Source of Inspiration

Whether or not we’ve done energy work previously, there’s just something new and inspiring that comes with every experience of Reiki. It’s literally never the same thing twice.

Every session offers some new perspective, new direction, or a new way to approach old challenges. I challenge you to end a Reiki session without feeling very excited for whatever comes next!

Reiki reminds us that after each session has ended, that “same-old-life” we’ll be returning to- out there in the physical world- is actually exciting! It’s full of hope and opportunity and perfection. Full of purpose. Fulfillment. Love. Connection. Peace. It always was. It always will be. It just is.

Each of us is infinitely blessed in each and every moment to be a tiny part of this huge, miraculous jumble.

Take Care & God Bless,
(whatever that means to you in this moment!)

Imagine if Natural Cures Were Illegal!


Oh, wait! They ARE illegal!

Here in the USA, anyway.

And WHY are natural cures illegal?!

Because the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is run by the same individuals who have served or will serve on the boards of directors at huge pharmaceutical companies.

Those companies and individuals would have a much harder time making f*ckloads of money if YOU knew you could cure illness by using fruits or vegetables.

If a scientist discovers a natural cure here in the USA, yes, they CAN publish their study results in a scientific journal.

But that’s where it ends.

Let’s say the natural cure they find is based on grape seeds. Well, the GRAPE PRODUCERS are not allowed to tell you about any specific cure on the bags of grapes. They can only make vague general statements, like “grapes may support normal cellular function”. If they went into any practical level of detail, the FDA would make it a point to f*ck them sideways.

The TELEVISION STATIONS? Legally, they could air the grape seed story, but they will not. Why? Because a huge portion of their advertising revenue comes from NEW PHARMACEUTICALS. They’d lose money if they aired news stories about natural healing. So YOU are NOT going to hear about it on TV.

Same thing goes for major radio networks, and online “journalism”.

Social media? Nope. Big Tech is so intertwined with the pharmaceutical interests at this point that they may as well be one and the same.

In fact, they ARE one and the same.

Let’s look at Alphabet, the parent company of Google and YouTube. Alphabet also owns Verily Life Sciences, which has partnered with pharmaceutical giants such as GlaxoSmithKline. Do you think this might influence the algorithms they use to determine which health-related content is shown (or banned) on YouTube? Or on Google search results?

These folks have a vested interest- billions of dollars’ worth- in you NOT knowing how to heal naturally! They’d love for you to remain dependent on pharmaceuticals.

Natural cures can’t be patented. They’re generally low-cost to produce and purchase. In many cases, you could conceivably grow your own.

There’s just no money in natural cures.

Which is exactly why natural cures are illegal.

Whether natural cures work or not is a completely separate question, as far as the FDA is concerned. The FDA couldn’t care less if a grape seed has ever actually cured anyone…they simply don’t give a damn about that.

High profits are prioritized over your health (by your government and the drug cartel) every single day. Literally. This is not “conspiracy theory”. Nor is it hyperbole. Take a look for yourself over at the FDA’s website: this should tell you everything you need to know.

Do your own health research, and/or work with a guide. I’m here to help if you need it!

COVID Vaccine Mandates Are Driven by Fear

We’re living in a paradox. The people who are fully vaccinated against COVID19 are the ones who fear catching the disease the most.

Meanwhile, the unvaccinated are roaming around without much apparent worry.

If you were one of the folks who rushed out to get an experimental COVID19 jab, here’s a sincere question: Did you expect (or at least hope) it would offer good protection against COVID? Wasn’t that the whole point of getting a vaccine to begin with?

And if the vaccine provides adequate protection, then how do we explain why so many fully-vaccinated individuals are now avoiding the unvaccinated, as though the unvaxxed are bloodthirsty vampires?

Here’s the explanation I hear on the news:

“Because if you are unvaccinated, you’re high-risk for COVID19, and you’re absolutely going to spread it to everyone around you”.

This is where the logic starts to do weird figure-eights.

Let’s suppose the above reasoning is correct: you’re more likely to get COVID from an unvaxxed individual.

Alright then. A hypothetical:

Let’s say you’re vaccinated, and you’ve received a case of COVID from a selfishly unjabbed person.

Is it possible to feel NO symptoms? Yes.

Is it possible to feel MILD symptoms? Yes.

Is it possible to get a SEVERE case? Yes.

Is it possible to DIE? Yes.

Well okay. That explains why the vaxxed are still afraid of the unvaxxed then, doesn’t it?

But then, why aren’t the vaxxed still afraid of the vaxxed?

Are they living in a false sense of security? Or a false sense of superiority, perhaps?

After all, if you believe the fully-vaccinated can get seriously ill or even die from the virus, then you must realize their viral load can be more than sufficient to transmit the virus.

Some readers at this point will be thinking “but the vaccinated get less sick, less often than the unvaccinated”. Apparently not significantly less, though, if the fully-vaxxed still need to fear COVID19. That’s just common sense. More on this later.

So does the vaccine protect you? Or not?

My question to the vaccinated is the same as it’s always been:

Are you protected, or aren’t you?

[I realize the true answer may be, “I’m 50% protected by the vaccine”. So, how much is 50% protection actually worth? That’s like a soldier wearing half their body armor and thinking, “good enough”! Half-protected is not a 1:1 substitute for fully-protected. You’re either damn-near fully protected, or you aren’t.]

So with that in mind:

If you ARE fully protected from the virus, it shouldn’t matter how many people you’re in a room with. It shouldn’t matter how many of them are currently carrying COVID, or how many of them have cloth facemasks on. It shouldn’t matter how many of the people in the room have been vaccinated. If you’re fully protected, why would you care?

And if you AREN’T fully protected by the vaccine, then maybe it’s time to get off your high horse, because you can still carry COVID (and get really sick and die from it, apparently). Which means you can obviously still transmit COVID. Which means you are still a threat to everyone around you.

Same as the unvaccinated.

And what does this mean about all those other fully-vaccinated people? It means they too are still a threat to you and everyone else in the room.

Same as the unvaccinated.

None of us are special. Sorry.

So why would you specifically avoid people who haven’t received the vaccine? If you still fear COVID that much, you obviously need to avoid everyone.

“But we know the risk associated with a fully vaccinated person is far, far lower than that of an unvaccinated person”.

Yeah, okay, I keep hearing that on the news, too. How much lower is the risk, though, really? Fifty percent vaccine efficacy seems to be the commonly accepted value these days. So instead of having a 99.9% chance to recover from the disease, now you’d have a 99.95% chance. Congratulations. I can do that with vitamins, sunlight, sleep, laughter, prayer, and exercise.

Speaking of which, have you noticed the deep silence from the media about maintaining healthy habits during a pandemic? Natural immunity is never discussed either. Makes sense, right?

Excuse the tangent. Let’s talk viral transmission:

Last summer, there were reports that the relative viral load between vaxxed and unvaxxed folks was similar upon exposure to COVID19 (this contradicts what has been reported by the mainstream news stations, unsurprisingly). If true, this suggests transmission rates are nearly indistinguishable between these two groups. Then there’s this claim that viral load is actually higher in the vaccinated. I hesitate to take any of this reporting (mainstream or not) at face-value. That phrase, “Trust the Science” is an inside joke among scientists.

What trends in transmission can we observe personally? I know people who tell me fully-vaccinated folks have been spreading the virus at their fully-vaccinated workplaces this winter.

Meanwhile, there are situations like this:

A few months ago, a fully-vaccinated person told me she was afraid to be near me (I was not fully-vaxxed). She was planning to visit her vaccinated friends the next day, and seemed to think she’d somehow grab COVID19 from me and vector it to those friends. But if a vaxxed person can transmit the disease to other vaxxed people, they obviously don’t need an unvaxxed person to start the cascade of transmission for them, do they? Think about it. They could just as easily catch COVID from any other random fully-vaccinated person on the planet, and continue the cascade that way.

This is just common sense.

Yet she decided to treat me differently (like I was a bloodthirsty vampire). I didn’t bother trying to debate.

None of this is logical at this point; it’s just pure hysteria. People are programmed to be in a state of fear, and they’ve stopped thinking.

Which brings us back to the issue of vaccine mandates.

Following from the logic above:

If vaccines ARE highly protective, then vaccinated individuals are NOT at significant risk (and unvaccinated individuals have accepted their risk by declining offers of vaccination) making mandates and vaccine passports largely unnecessary for everyone involved.

If vaccines ARE NOT highly protective (which seems to be the real-world scenario here) then if we’re being honest, we’d admit that vaccine mandates and passports are useless.

Finally, the elephant in the room:

The international drug cartel has the brains and education to understand all this, yet continues pushing their compulsory global vaccination wet-dreams, hard.

So there’s a choice to make.

You can let this frenzied, media-induced COVID19 hysteria sweep you along, aiding a global agenda which is obviously NOT rooted in public health- despite “health” being the stated goal. You would be supporting an undisclosed agenda, be it good or bad.

Or, you can start saying “No” to all these bullshit-artist tyrants who talk smooth, dress nice, and falsely claim to be the saviors of humankind.

Blue Guns Only!

Picture a man named Marvin. He’s a bouncer at the Lucky Frog Club, in Yuppie City. It’s his job to keep the patrons & staff of the Lucky Frog safe. One of the ways he does this is to make sure nobody sneaks in with a red gun. Everybody knows red guns are dangerous.

“Dangerous as fuck”, as Marvin would tell you. “The only SAFE gun is a BLUE gun.”, he’d say.

If he were still with us, that is.

See, last night, Marvin was on duty again at the Frog. He stopped a lot of people from entering the building with red guns. No red gun ever escaped his notice. Lots of folks came in with blue guns, but of course Marvin knew blue guns were not a problem, because management had made that fact totally clear through repetitive programming during his training. “Red guns”, they’d said, “are far too dangerous to be allowed in public”.

Well, somehow, twelve people still got killed with bullets down at the Frog last night, and sadly, Marvin was among the victims.

So listen: In Marvin’s honor, Yuppie City is asking everyone to double down on their commitment to keep red guns out of establishments like the Lucky Frog. Your mantra needs to be: “BLUE GUNS ONLY.” This is life and death, so anything less is irrational and irresponsible. People who still carry red guns despite all the government warnings? They need to grow up, yesterday.

The Moral of the Story

…is probably best said using a table:

Table 1

Notice- if you haven’t already- that the defining safety characteristic of a thing has no bearing on whether or not it is allowed in the Lucky Frog.

Actually, let’s add another column to the above table. Maybe…just maybe…we can drive this point home for our brainwashed friends (like poor, dead Marvin):

Table 2

For those who don’t do tables well

let me put this into words:

If you and your friend can both carry COVID and spread it to other people, then why the hell is one of you allowed into a building while the other is not?

And if you don’t understand the reasoning behind vaccine passports, perhaps you should speak up now, because as a matter of fact there IS NO reasoning.

Well, wait.

There’s no reasoning grounded in improving public health, at least. Which leaves us to speculate, then, doesn’t it?

If the PURPOSE of vaccine passports is NOT public health, then what IS the purpose?

Control? Gradual depopulation? Both? Something else?

I don’t know. I’m just clear-eyed enough to know it sure as heck isn’t about my safety, or yours, or grandma’s, or anyone else’s.

What we have here is a bad case of Blue Guns Only. Ask Marvin how that worked out.

On a related note, I help people train themselves to maintain top-notch immune system function and still have fun once in a while. Hit me up if you need this service.

The Why (& How) of Natural Cancer Prevention

Webinar – November 17, 2021 @ 7pm EST

As you may already know, cancer is a metabolic disease.

In other words, the way cancer cells convert food into energy is broken. ….Very broken.

As we say, “cancer has a breathing problem”.

This applies to every type, stage, and location of cancer.

The good news- when we’re talking about prevention and treatment- is that we don’t need to focus on genetics. That can be a daunting task! Instead, we can shift the metabolic state of our body, helping the cancer either self-repair or self-destruct.

There are other ways to take advantage of the unique weaknesses of cancer cells. In stark contrast to the majority of current-day medical treatments for cancer (surgery, chemo, immunotherapy, radiation), most metabolic and nutritional techniques also contribute to the overall health of the entire body.

In this webinar, I will briefly explain how & why lifestyle changes are quite possibly the solution to the problem.

This is a free educational event. Please register at the events page.

I hope to see you there!
