I mentioned in an earlier blog that I recently interviewed Alanna Moore.

Alanna Moore

Alanna Moore

I’m now delighted to provide her interview for your listening enjoyment and education.  Alanna Moore has been a dowser/geomancer for 25 years and has specialised in making ‘Power Towers’ across Australia over the last ten years, as well as divining for devic energy fields. She likes to focus on practical applications for healing Mother Earth. She is well known amongst the international dowsing fraternity for her magazine articles, books and films. Here’s the show. It’s an inspiring one:

Alanna Moore Backyard Poultry DesignAlanna explains what dousing is and how it can be used for good health in humans and in gardens. In a nutshell, dousing is an extension of our natural faculties and a tool to improve intuition. She described a study in Austria that linked behavioural and performance problems in school children to geopathic stress in the classroom or at home. Alanna suggested that beekeepers intent on having healthy hives and maximizing honey production would be best to emulate nature when choosing locations for bee hives. She tells a story of how a renowned douser outside of Belfast moved rocks around to balance energy in the area. The long awaited peace agreement was signed just after this. Alanna Moore Stone Age Farming

Alanna’s book, Stone Age Farming, came out of research she did on ancient stone towers in Ireland. She describes permaculture and how it runs counter to the status quo together with it’s great recent success in Cuba encouraging food production within the cities. Some of Alanna’s other books include The Wisdom of Water and Back Yard Poultry Farming.

Once again my interview with Alanna is here:

Can changing your diet help you quit smoking? The following story was related to me the other day by an American friend also living here in New Zealand. She’s about to turn sixty. Fruit and VegetablesI’ll let you do the maths in the narrative below as told in her words. Her experience with nutrition and smoking is fascinating and encouraging. Perhaps all those struggling to overcome the nicotine addiction should give a vegan diet a chance. What is there to lose?

 

I started smoking at age 15 and loved every cigarette. At age 26 I moved to Tokyo to teach at an International School. I was in the land of smokers so I never thought of quitting. But my students would beg me to quit so I would try—without success. Since my Dad died of hardening of the arteries when I was 16, I was always very careful with diet. I didn’t like meat. It was too hard to digest but I enjoyed eating chicken, turkey and lamb. I took nutrition courses as often as I could and started thinking of becoming a vegetarian. 

 

cigarettes_smallTwelve years ago, I decided to eliminate all animal products from my diet and didn’t have problems with the change. But a surprise came about three months after changing my diet… I woke on a Sunday morning, and I didn’t go for a cigarette. The first thing I did every morning was to grab for a cigarette and the last thing at night was a cigarette. For me not to have an urge was certainly a surprise. I thought, I’ll take it one hour at a time, and the day passed with no urge. A week passed and then a month. It’s now been 12 years. I never went through any withdrawal or any kind of unpleasantness. I cannot explain the correlation between having no animal products in my diet and no desire to smoke but what happened to me was just amazing. I just hope it happens to someone else. 

 

Has anyone reading this had a similar experience? Do let me know.

 

Blessings,

John

Peace Candle

I want to make available for listening and download two inspiring stories I have recorded: The Peace Candle and Keep on Singing. May they provide much inspiration and enjoyment.

The Peace Candle is an inspiring true story of a man living in London in the 1990s. His spontaneous recovery from leukaemia shows that with the right intention all things are possible.

Keep on Singing is the true story of the ability of a three-year-old boy’s love and song to heal his dying baby sister. I love this story.

I’ve been sharing these stories with groups for the past ten years and they never fail to reach into people’s hearts.

I’ve just changed the links. My apologies to those of you who’ve unsuccessfully attempted to listen to these stories. The server where I’d uploaded the audio changed. I’ve put them on odeo.com where I put my radio shows.

Sunday, July 26th —    An excerpt from a long article by Michael Chossoduvsky, dated 7/27/09. 

Forced Vaccination under a Public Health Emergency? Multibillion Financial Bonanza for the BioTech Conglomerates

The 2005 bird flu hoax was in many regards a dress rehearsal. The 2009 H1N1 pandemic is a much larger multibillion dollar operation. A select number of biotech and pharmaceutical companies have been involved in negotiations behind closed doors with the WHO and the US Administration. Key agencies are the Atlanta based Center for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which have close ties to the pharmaceutical industry. The conflicts of interest of these agencies is brought to light in Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s  detailed study entitled Vaccinations: Deadly Immunity, June 2005:

“The story of how government health agencies colluded with Big Pharma to hide the risks of thimerosal from the public is a chilling case study of institutional arrogance, power and greed. I was drawn into the controversy only reluctantly. As an attorney and environmentalist who has spent years working on issues of mercury toxicity, I frequently met mothers of autistic children who were absolutely convinced that their kids had been injured by vaccines. … “The elementary grades are overwhelmed with children who have symptoms of neurological or immune-system damage,” Patti White, a school nurse, told the House Government Reform Committee in 1999. “Vaccines are supposed to be making us healthier; however, in twenty-five years of nursing I have never seen so many damaged, sick kids. Something very, very wrong is happening to our children.” Robert F. Kennedy Jr,   Vaccinations: Deadly Immunity, June 2005. 

The WHO is planning for the production of 4.9 billion dose, enough to inoculate a large share of the World’s population. Big Pharma including Baxter, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Sanofi-Aventis and  AstraZeneca have signed procurement contracts with some 50 governments. (Reuters, July  16, 2009). For these companies, compulsory vaccination is a highly lucrative undertaking: 

“The WHO has refused to release the Minutes of a key meeting of an advisory vaccine group “packed with executives from Baxter, Novartis and Sanofi” that recommended compulsory vaccinations in the USA, Europe and other countries against the artificial H1N1 “swine flu” virus this autumn.

In an email this morning, a WHO spokesperson claimed there are no Minutes of the meeting that took place on July 7th in which guidelines on the need for worldwide vaccinations that WH0 adopted this Monday were formulated and in which Baxter and other Pharma executives participated.

Under the International Health Regulations, WHO guidelines have a binding character on all of WHO’s 194 signatory countries in the event of a pandemic emergency of the kind anticipated this autumn when the second more lethal wave of the H1N1 virus “which is bioengineered to resemble the Spanish flu virus” emerges.

In short: WHO has the authority to force everyone in those 194 countries to take a vaccine this fall at gunpoint, impose quarantines and restrict travel.” (Jane Burgermeister, WHO moves forward in secrecy to accomplish forced vaccination and population agenda,  Global Research, July 2009).

On May 19th, the WHO Director General and senior officials met behind closed doors with  the representatives of some 30 pharmaceutical companies.

“In a perfect world the planet’s leading pharmaceutical companies could produce 4.9 billion H1N1 swine flu vaccinations over the course of the next year. This is the World Health Organization’s latest assessment. WHO Director-General Dr. Margaret Chan met with 30 pharmaceutical companies on Tuesday and briefed reporters on a WHO plan to secure vaccinations for poor countries who lack sufficient infrastructure to fight a possible pandemic. (Digital Journal, 19 May 2009)

According to recent report in Business Week, “Wealthier countries such as the U.S. and Britain will pay just under $10 per dose, the same price for the seasonal flu vaccine. Developing countries will pay a lower price, (Business Week, July 2009). The WHO suggests that the 4.9 billion doses will not suffice and that a second inoculation will be required.

4,9 billion doses at about ten dollars ($10.00) a shot and somewhat less in the developing countries, represents a windfall profit bonanza for Big Pharma of the order of 400 billion dollars in a single year. And the WHO claims that one dose per person may not suffice…

Diseases of the soul are more dangerous and more numerous than those of the body.

                                                                                                                                                                                       ― Cicero         

The following words were recently sent to me by my dear friend, Elan Sunstar. I don’t know the source but I think you’ll agree they have tremendous relevance today. 

     ADD, or Attention Deficit Disorder, has gotten a lot of attention over the last few decades. More and more children are being diagnosed with the disorder, along with many adults. Yet there is another disorder that is even more pervasive and dangerous, and which exacts our society a far greater cost: Spiritual Deficit Disorder.

      Symptoms of SDD include resistance to awakening in the morning, boredom with work, absence of passion, irritability, fatigue, chronic low-level diseases. inclination to soft or hard addictions, a sense of lack of direction and meaning, self-numbing in front of a television or computer screen, hypnosis from watching the news followed by depression, insatiable need to acquire more stuff, and pursuing relationship partners with no lasting or rewarding results.

      Experts report that far more of the population may suffer from SDD than appearances would indicate, and some of the people who claim or appear to be the happiest may in their private moments be the emptiest of joy.

      While medical officials are not aware of a cure for SDD (and many are not even aware of the disease) it had been reported by non-traditional healing practitioners that a number of remedies have been tried and proven. They include: stepping away from the computer, getting into nature, taking long deep breaths of fresh air, spending time with people you enjoy rather than those you feel obligated to be with, choosing a career that allows you to express your passion, speaking your truth to those close to you, working less, playing more, avoiding the news or talk of it, laughing at will, and serious lovemaking.

      Members of SDDA meet at twelve-step groups to share their stories of how they were addicted to the fear until they realized the spirit inside them gave them more reward than anything outside them. If you suffer from SDD it is recommended that you get help immediately.

What do you do, or can you do, to reconnect with your spirit and revitalize your life? 

I am a spiritual being at my core, nourished and sustained by life and love.

Last week I took my nutrition class to visit a dear friend who has inspired me often over the years. He suggested we each ingest a teaspoon of Himalayan Salt (the pink salt mined in Pakistan) dissolved in water each morning. I’ve copied below a page from a website explaining more. This is something worth considering.

Sole – The Liquid Health 

When water and salt are combined, they form a new dimension, Sole (pronounce So-lay). In German, the word sole, which is derived from the Latin word “sol”, which means sun. Some believe, that sole is as close as you can get, to the liquid materialization of sunlight. Sole means fluid sunlight or fluid light energy. Sole is a living substance! You can infuse your body with much needed minerals, replace electrolytes and balance your energy simply and naturally by drinking a sole solution each day. The sole is an excellent product for balancing the pH factor of your body. 

With the help of sole, you can get rid of heavy metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, amalgam and calcium; because the crystal salt is able to break up their molecular structures. Treat your body to a sole therapy in order to get rid of the calcium build up. For the body to get rid of these deposits it has to first metabolize them; that’s where sole is irreplaceable. Even animal proteins, which are difficult to break down and eliminate, will be removed through the urine due to the “power” of sole.

 

Sole and Science

How is it possible? When water and Himalayan Crystal Salt connect, the negative poles of the water molecules surround the positive ions in the salt and the negative ions in the salt are surrounded by the positive polarized particles of the water molecules. This changes the geometric structure of the water and the salt, and creates something entirely new, a third dimension. The water no longer is water and the salt no longer salt. The elements have liberated themselves from their restrictions, given up their polarities by the resonant effects, and reached a higher form of energy. Only through this process of attaining higher levels of symbiosis, can these substances relinquish their polarities and return into the oneness of all elements.

This is exactly what occurs  when water and salt meet. The willingness of the water to give up its own identity, in return, liberates the salt from its manifested identity; overcoming the powers of the crystal structure and to separate sodium from chloride.

Both elements are in a ionized state, releasing their stored energy and information. The crystalline structure of the sole is so profound that its vibration pattern lasts over 24 hours in our bodies. With the sole, you can have exactly that vibration pattern that the body is lacking when it is sick.

 

Sole poultice is a very effective treatment for Flu and Fever Relief , Psoriasis, Herpes; and to assist in Dental Hygiene. Learn more… 

 

Sole is very effective in correcting skin blemishes and treating insect bites.


Benefits of Drinking Sole 

  • The sole supplies the body with the natural energy stored in the crystals and the body can hold this up to 24 hours. 
  • Can harmonize the alkaline/acidity balance in the body and normalize blood pressure

 

  • Can dissolve and eliminate sediments which lead to stones and various forms of rheumatism like arthritis and kidney and gall bladder stones. 
  • Can lower the craving for addictive desires. 
  • Can help with skin diseases by cleaning from inside out. 

 

Recommended way of ingesting sole.

Every morning, take one teaspoon of sole mixed in a glass of good quality artesian or spring water. Drink this on an empty stomach before taking breakfast. The amount of water is up to you, but you only need one teaspoon of sole for your daily intake. The regularity is important. 

From a bio-chemical viewpoint, within minutes, the whole stomach and intestines are being stimulated. And this again stimulates the digestion and metabolism. The overall availability of electrolytes is built up and thus the conductivity in the body is increased, which in turn affects the circulation.

 

How to prepare sole

Loosely fill a lockable glass container with several Himalayan crystal salt stones. Quality of the salt is of critical importance.

Use only guaranteed products. Add good spring water completely filling the vessel. After approximately 24 hours, look to see if the salt crystals have completely dissolved. If so, add a few more crystals. When the water can no longer dissolve any more salt, the salt crystals will sit at the bottom of the jar without dissolving. At this point the solution will have become saturated at 26%, a satisfactory and ready to use sole solution. 

The 26% concentration now remains chemically stable. The glass can be refilled again and again with water and salt. 

Continue the process according to your needs. Find more on how to maximize benefits of sole.

“You’re not sick; you’re thirsty. Don’t treat thirst with medication.”

Dr. F. Batmanghelidj

Elan Sun Star is arguably the most published photographer in the world. Yes, I said that correctly. You can see his beautiful photographs on the covers of countless magazines. Many of his photos involve huge waves bashing the coast of various Hawaiian isles. I wonder if being around all that water has caused him to read 1200 books on water (over a 35 year period) while researching his own book on the same subject. Sun (as I call him) visited New Zealand from Hawaii in early 2008 and I had the privilege of interviewing him about, you guessed it, water.

Our hour long discussion ranged over some fascinating fronts, from Masaru Emoto to Dr. Batmanghelidj. As many of you know Masaru Emoto is the author of the bestselling book, The Hidden Message in Water, and other books on the subject of how water holds the emotional and mental imprints of human beings. He proves it with stunning photography. emoto and water crystal photoIn the prologue to The Hidden Message in Water, Emoto writes that we are 99% water as fetuses and we are still 90% water when we are born. By the time we reach adulthood we are down to 70% water, roughly the same percentage as the planet we live on. If we die of old age we will probably be about 50% water. In other words, throughout our lives we are mostly water. Those numbers point to the fact that we are dehydrating during the course of our lives. Perhaps, we don’t die of disease or old age; it could be that we die of dehydration.

And that ties in with the basic premise of Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, M.D. In his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, he writes, “I am a researcher. I have researched dehydration for the past 20 years. When I discovered that the solution to most of the disease conditions of our society is not a money maker, I decided to take my information to the public.

“My research revealed that unintentional dehydration produces stress, chronic pains and many degenerative diseases. Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong. Medicine has based its understanding that it is solid matter in the body that regulates all functions of the body. I have explained scientifically at the molecular level that it is water that regulates all functions of the body including functions of solid matter. 75 % of our bodies are composed of water. The brain is 85% water. Your Body's Many Cries fror WaterIt is water that energizes and activates the solid matter. If you don’t take enough water, some functions of the body will suffer. Dehydration produces system disturbances. When I use the word water cure, I am referring to curing dehydration with water.”

The work of Messieurs Emoto and Batmanghelidj is just a fraction of what Sun and I covered in the hour we had together for this interview. Listen to this fascinating talk that ranges over the work of such esteemed researchers as Patrick Flanigan and, of course, Victor Schaugerger, whose ground breaking and suppressed work is presented in Living Water, a book that really got me thinking in the early 1990s.Victor Schauberger

Finally, If you want to see something really interesting visit the following website:

www.shamanicvisions/ingerman. Sandra Ingerman and 60 others did an experiment. They sent out love and prayers to water that had a poison added to it. Afterwards it tested clear and all 60 people drank it. There must be ramifications here for dramatically improving polluted water sites around the world.

Here’s a link to the Smile interview I did with Elan Sun Star.
