Handle Uncertainty and Master your Fear

Handle Uncertainty and Master your Fear published on No Comments on Handle Uncertainty and Master your Fear


One Sunday morning, I was at the Ballard Farmers market when I spotted a man who looked familiar. “My”, I thought to myself, “He looks like Patch Adams.”

For those of you who haven’t heard of Patch Adams MD, he was a doctor at a children’s hospital with an unorthodox, humorously silly approach to treatment, on which a movie was based featuring Robin Williams.

Shortly after noticing him, he came over and introduced himself to my friends and I.

“Hi, I’m Patch Adams.” he said, ”Have you heard of me?”
“Yes!” I exclaimed, “I knew it was you!” Happy that I was correct in my recognition.
He smiled.
Then, I asked, “May I take a photo with you?
Of course!” he smiled even bigger,
”But only if you stick your finger up your nose.”

“No, thank you.” I said, and turned to walk away.

“Wait a minute!”, he asked, “What do you think will happen whenever you look at a photo of us with our fingers in our noses?”

I thought a moment.
“I’ll laugh.”

“Exactly,” he said.

Then it suddenly occurred to me all the times I’ve said No, and turned down opportunities because I was concerned about what other people thought, afraid of disapproval.

This was a moment of enlightenment.

I’m sure you’ve a similar story of hesitation and doubt, though probably much more stressful. In retrospect, because I really wasn’t attached to the outcome, as there were no real ramifications, it afforded me the moment to reflect on my own inner dynamics.
(I did take the picture with Patch Adams, MD with our fingers in our noses in-case you’re wondering 😉

Uncertainty, fear, and doubt are painful emotions that we all endure. These are the things keep us up, enduring another sleepless night worrying…

Fear deconstructs you.

Fear negatively impacts your view on life, your confidence levels, and even your potential. Fear of failure stifles creativity, destroys promising ideas, and stops us from realizing our dreams.

When you’re afraid and uncertain, your motivation diminishes.
Yes, my friends,
fear actually is the root of procrastination.

So, how can I manage and overcome my reluctance and fear?

  1. Acknowledge And Appreciate Your Emotions, Knowing They Support You.
  2. Recognize that you are feeling fear. This will help you get to the source.
  3. Determine the under laying cause. This requires self-reflection, which may be difficult while engulfed in the experience. It may require time alone afterwards in a safe place, to fully assess the situation.
  4. Check in with the conversation you’re having with yourself. What are your thoughts and words your saying to yourself? Are you deconstructing yourself? Are you repeating something negative someone once said to you? You may not be able to articulate into words the sensations you’re experiencing, so be patient.
  5. What is the message of the uncertainty and fear:
    – What else could this mean?
    – What can I learn from this?
    – What is my belief causing me to feel this way?
    Am I really: afraid of failing, being ridiculed, facing change, etc.?
    It’s important that you recognize your fear and attempt to define what it is that makes you frightened.Asking these questions will help change your perception of the situations that intimidate you, your perception of yourself, and improve how you’re handling things.
  6. Probably the best method that works and will improve your confidence over time and over all is to purposely face your fears by doing activities that push you outside of your comfort zone. Now is the time to take that public speaking course. Or maybe next time, take the path over the footbridge with the long drop below. Often times you’ll find all those lions you thought were in your pathway were just kittens. Just try.

Remember, YOU are the source of all your emotions; you are the one who creates them. Be patient with yourself while following these steps as you awakened to your own inner dialogue, perceptions, and work on the changes to release your fears to live life more abundantly and joyfully!

Can Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Intuition?

Can Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Intuition? published on No Comments on Can Electromagnetic Fields Affect Your Intuition?


We live in a sea of energy

Wherever there is an electric current flowing, there will be a magnetic field as a result. The higher the electrical current, the higher the magnetic field will be. Anything that has an electric current has this electromagnetic field.

Natural sources of electromagnetic fields

Electromagnetic fields are present and a natural occurrence in our environment, most recognized in the forms of thunderstorms and the earth’s magnetic field. Although these energy fields are invisible, this may explain why you may feel excited or energized during a thunderstorm, or feel different sensations during high sunspot activity (releases ions into the earths’ atmosphere creating aurora borealis).

Human-made sources of electromagnetic fields

The electromagnetic fields truly of the most concern are those from manmade sources. I’m sure you’ve heard that electromagnetic fields (EMF) aren’t good for your health and well-being, (remember mom telling you not to sit so close to the TV?) but how does this work?

Any electronic device has an electromagnetic field. The average household electrical device, from microwaves, computers, cell phones, TV, etc. average 100khz-300khz.


spectrum-emfSchuman Field (Earth energy field) ranges – 1Hz to 30Hz
Often the Earth frequency (Schuman field) is stated as 7.82Hz. This is calculated based on the earths circumference, but due to variables such as ions from sunspots and other interstellar interference, the earths magnetic field fluctuates.

Human brain in Alpha wave state:
relaxed, eyes closed but alert – 8Hz to 13Hz

Human brain in Beta wave state:
awake, mental concentration – 14Hz to 30Hz
Nerve pulses are electrical energy. The chemical processes in nerve cells throughout the body, brain and heart cause the human energy field. 1khz=1000hz

You can see that our own energy field is close to that of the earth.
Man-made electronic devices have a far higher EMF, which in turn do have an effect on us.

Fields of different frequencies interact with the body in different ways. This is of concern because our exposure is greatly increasing due to greater demand of electricity and electric devices.


Some symptoms of long-term EMF exposure include:

  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mild nausea
  • Paranoia
  • Headaches
  • Sweating
  • Shakiness
  • Joint pain
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Weakness,
  • Chronic illness
  • Memory issuesThe effects of EMFs vary as much as individuals vary.

Electromagnetic Fields, your Intuition and Pineal Gland
Recent studies have shown that EMFs affect your pineal gland, which is part of your endocrine system and located in the brain.

What does that mean?

Your pineal gland is the chemical/biological catalyst and connection between you, the universe and Divine. It is your pineal glad that supports your intuition and psy abilities. EMFs are perceived as light by the pineal gland, thus interrupting melatonin and serotonin levels, causing insomnia & depression, and they disrupt the neuro-modulators and subtle magnetic fields perceived by the pineal gland that support your intuition.

  • “Malka N. Halgamuge of the University of Melbourne in Australia further examined the effect of man-made EMF on the pineal gland. Halgamuge states in his research that the pineal gland likely recognizes EMF as light, which consequently would result in reduced melatonin production. “…the results show the significance of disruption of melatonin due to exposure to weak EMFs, which may possibly lead to long-term health effects in humans.” – Malka N. Halgamuge (Oxford Journals)”

Electromagnetic fields can effect your intuition and psy abilities in a negative way!

Tips to protect yourself from EMFs and even boost intuition:


  • Ground yourself. Go out into nature, walk in the woods, away from buildings and high power lines…and leave your cell phone behind.
  • Immerse yourself in water. Soaking in a tub, pond or even better – the ocean. Salt water draws energy away faster than fresh water.
  • Use Breathing and meditation techniques to calm your nervous system.
  • Listen to music that you enjoy, that help balance your current state.
  • When your nervous system is over stimulated, use up the energy; go to the gym, run bicycle, and exercise.
  • When using your cell phone, wear the corded headset to talk. A Bluetooth earpiece isn’t recommended as it has the same EMF as holding the cell to your ear.
  • If you’re having trouble sleeping, placing tinfoil under your mattress will help shield you from EMFs.
  • Take regular breaks from using your computer and cell phone.
  • Unplug any electronic devices around your house that aren’t being used. Even when plugged in, they draw a small current of electricity.
  • Keep a healthy diet and strong immune system.

Choosing Crystals for Healing

Choosing Crystals for Healing published on No Comments on Choosing Crystals for Healing


So you’re at a big crystal & mineral show, or the Sunday market, or at a specialty crystal shop and you want to buy a crystal… but which is the right one?

The best place to start is by identifying what is it you’d like to have remedied and the affiliated Chakra. The Chakras (Sanskrit, “wheel”) are seven major energy centers of the body starting at the root and ending at the head following the centerline of the body. Chakras are part of the subtle body where life force energy flows through the body’s channels. Each Chakra governs different physical organs, emotional and mental states.

When the concept of Chakras and the energetic system based on them was brought over to the West, the colors associated with them were simplified to the most dominant color.


The simplest way to choose a crystal is based on the color of the chakra related to the issue you would like to address.
1st Chakra – The ROOT

Primary color is red, also black
Crystals like Garnet or Onyx, Red Jasper

2nd Chakra – The Sacral
Primary color is orange
Crystals like Carnelian, orange calcite

3rd Chakra – The Solar Plexus
Primary color is yellow
Crystals like Citrine, Tiger eye, Yellow topaz

4th Chakra – The Heart
Primary color is green, also pink
Crystals like Rose Quartz or Jade or Aventurine

5th Chakra – The Throat
Primary color blue.
Crystals like Turquoise or Sodalite

6th Chakra – The Third eye (or brow)
Primary color is dark blue or various shades of dark blue.
Gemstones like Lapis Lazuli or Amethyst

7th Chakra – The Crown
Primary color is purple; also colorless (clear) or white.
Gemstones like Amethyst or Clear Quartz

Once you have chosen a crystal, hold it in your hands and see how it feels. The way crystals cause effect and positive change in you body is through resonance. A crystal that feels good is resonating in a harmonious way with your own energy field and subtly causing balance.

There are many, many crystals that cause a variety of effects and can be used in many ways. Take your time to get to know them and their many uses.
