Stop Smart Meters

I’ve been voicing concerns about electromagnetic radiation (EMR), including radio frequency radiation from cell phones, baby monitors, cordless phones, wifi, etc.,for years. When the so-called smart meters arrived on the scene I was alarmed. They operate in the microwave frequency range and you can’t shut them off. They operate 24/7/365 and they can’t be moved as they are mounted on the side of your home/school/hospital/office building. They interact with other smart meters in a mesh grid, compounding the EMR problem.  If you are one those persons that like to keep the garden in a good shape, you need to have the best 4 Cycle String Trimmer, in you can find the best models of 4 Cycle string trimmer.

When smart meters came to my neighborhood on Maui I had to do something so I created Please check it out for facts about smart meters and valuable resources. While you’re there please sign the petition to stop smart meters in Hawaii. If you care about Hawaii help protect paradise from this dangerous new technology.

Optimizing Your Life Energy!

As the author of more than 30 books, including the bestselling series Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, Dr. Richard Carlson helped millions of people create lives of greater peace, connection and caring by focusing on the more important things in life. The last chapter of one of his books is titled "Live This Day As If It Might Be Your Last. It Might Be!" Ironically and sadly, Carlson died unexpectedly at age 45 on a plane flight to New York.

How better to drive home his point?

We really don’t know how long we have in this life. Yet, we spend so much of our life energy mulling over what’s in the past or worrying about what the future holds. We get caught up in the minutia of life, losing sight of the bigger picture of what’s actually important.

How much energy would we free up by living more in the now? How can we optimize the time we have? Here are some ideas:

* Clarify your values and create a life purpose statement. The clearer you are about what’s deeply important to you (your values) and who you are at your core, the more likely you will succeed in living your life "on purpose." Your purpose statement is a guidepost for knowing if you’re going in the right direction and provides information to put you back on course if you’re not acting in alignment with your values and life mission.

* Let the past be the past. How much time do you spend thinking about the past? Do you re-live old memories over and over, or think about what you should have said or done? Do you wish things were like they were in the "good ol’ days?" Whether it’s letting go of anger at the driver who cut you off just this morning, or regretting the loss of your first love, living in the past keeps you from fully experiencing your life right here, right now.

* Release worrying about the future. Mark Twain said something like: I have been through some terrible things in my life, most of which never happened. So much of what we worry about doesn’t happen, yet we spend countless hours and huge amounts of energy battling fantasy problems. Notice how much time you spend worrying about the future and gently remind yourself to return to the present. What physical reminder can you give yourself right now (a post-it note, a ribbon around your wrist) that will help anchor you in the present?

* Keep things in perspective. It’s usually our attachment to things being a certain way that leads to frustration. Practice accepting "what is" if you want to experience a greater sense of peace. Everything that happens is by divine design. Therefore, everything that happens is our teacher. We might not have chosen the timing of these lessons, and don’t necessarily have to enjoy them; however, if we choose the perspective that things happen "for us" and not "to us," life becomes a much more growth-filled, joyous ride!

How Do You Handle Change?

The Times They Are A-Changin’
as Bob Dylan aptly put it. We need not look far to see this is a time of instability in economic and social structures. Are you equipped with enough inner flexibility that you can be resilient in moving through the changes that must come? Are you sufficiently connected with your High Self so that you can draw upon those internal resources? Are you situated in personal circumstances in such a way that you may successfully surf the waves of change globally and in your personal world?

When connected with Higher Consciousness you become much more resourceful. Fear loses its power and you become able to recognize the opportunities in rapidly changing circumstances.

All change carries with it the risk of the unknown and the unexpected. Some find this exciting and welcome the challenge. Others go down the path of change reluctantly, resisting all the way. A conscious awareness of your response to change can help you better prepare yourself for the changes now set in motion.

Answer the following questions to find out how well you cope with change. You won’t be scored at the end, but reflect on those that seem especially relevant and challenging … and consider changing them! :)

How Well Do You Cope With Change?

T / F 1. I hesitate to make a change until everything seems 100% right.

T / F 2. I don’t make changes until they are forced on me.

T / F 3. Generally, I look forward to change as exciting and challenging.

T / F 4. I’m the kind of person who has to be totally fed up before I’ll make any changes.

T / F 5. When confronted with a change over which I have little control, I review the events and my behavior to determine if I could have done anything differently.

T / F 6. Rather than feeling responsible for negative changes that come out of nowhere, I take responsibility for my reaction to them.

T / F 7. I realize that sometimes even "good" changes have an underside that may bring unexpected problems.

T / F 8. I realize that a positive change in one area of my life won’t smooth out all my problems.

T / F 9. When coming to terms with a major change in my life, I attempt to keep other changes to a minimum.

T / F 10. When a change or transition occurs, I review how I have handled other such events in my life for lessons on how to deal with this event.

T / F 11. I look for other people who have undergone similar changes as models for how I might better handle the change in my life.

T / F 12. During a time of change, I ask for help and support from those close to me, reliable friends and outside professionals.

T / F 13. After a life change, I step back from the situation to get perspective and rest in order to regain a sense of balance.

T / F 14. I try to look at the "big picture" of the change, and acknowledge any mixed feelings I might have.

T / F 15. Rather than blaming or feeling victimized, when I’m caught in a change over which I have no control, I "pick myself up, dust myself off" and continue to move forward.

T / F 16. I don’t hold onto the "way things used to be," but instead move into "the way things are now."

T / F 17. In order to make a necessary change, I am willing to risk disapproval and lack of support from others.

T / F 18. When something positive happens for someone that might change our relationship, I don’t let my fears get in the way of being supportive of that person.

9/11 Global Peace Intention Experiment

Tens of thousands of people from all over the world are joining together for the tenth anniversary of 9/11 for a remarkable experiment: to discover whether their collective intention can bring greater peace to an area of conflict. The experiment is being monitored and measured by a team of scientists from the Universities of California, Arizona, and Princeton.

The 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment, organized by Lynne McTaggart (author of The Intention Experiment) will take place in a 20-minute period every day for eight days. As such it will replicate the 2008 Peace Intention Experiment, carried out on Sri Lanka, which showed a 74% reduction of violence after the experiment and a demonstrable effect when studied through statistical time analysis.

Monitoring the effects will be a scientific team comprising University of Arizona psychologist Dr. Gary Schwartz, University of St. Petersburg State University physicist Dr. Konstantin Korotkov, Dr. Roger Nelson, a psychologist formerly of Princeton University and current director of the Global Consciousness Project, and Jessica Utts, a professor of statistics at the University of California at Irvine.

The 9/11 Intention Experiment marks the latest of 23 scientifically controlled, web-based experiments carried out by The Intention Experiment to test the power of thought to change the physical world. Thousands of volunteers from 90 countries around the world have participated in rigorous, laboratory-controlled experiments. Twenty of these experiments have shown significant positive results. Dr. Gary Schwartz and his team at the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona reported the results of six experiments in a scientific paper presented at a recent Society for Scientific Exploration conference.

How to Participate in the 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment:

Register TODAY. (The site gets very busy on the days of the experiment, so register now, so that you can login easily on the days of the experiment.) Even if you have registered for Intention Experiments before, you will have to register on

Note the dates and times. The 9/11 Peace Intention Experiment will run for 8 consecutive days, starting on Sunday September 11, 2011, each day at 1 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time, with the last one on Sunday, September 18.

Spread the word! Tell your likeminded friends about the experiment, so they can participate. Urge them to register ahead so they can quickly get through on the days of the experiment.

May Peace Be Within Us!

What is wrong with this picture?

Something called "No OM Yoga" is gaining popularity across the country. It promises all of the health effects "without the spiritual stuff." This comes on the heels of Power Yoga, Warrior Yoga, Weight Loss Yoga, and Yoga Burn. Yogananda’s ashes must be churning in their urn. Then today in my Inbox came an announcement of a meditation CD. You listen for just a few minutes and it produces states that have been "measured by brain analysis equipment as "deeper"than those reached by Zen Monks." Is there no end to our consumer mentality in which we are always trying to get something for nothing? Last I heard there are no short cuts to enlightenment.

Is Your Ego Twisted?

Cathy (not her real name) came to see me to work on an issue of low self-esteem. She felt everything was her fault, no matter what. Her self-talk was characterized by put downs and if those around her were unhappy she was convinced it was because of some failing on her part. Cathy was well aware of her low self-image and her need to please others. What she wasn’t aware of was her egotism.

We tend to think of egotism in the inflated sense (see how great and wonderful I am!). But the ego can also take a deflated form (see how bad and wrong I am) and it is ego just the same. Whether I am thinking I am great or awful, it’s still all about me. If I am stuck in thinking I make people unhappy, I have done something wrong and it’s all my fault, I am constantly drawing attention to myself. I’m actually saying that I have power over others: I have the power to make others unhappy and I have the power to cause these bad things to happen. This is convoluted egotism.

Seeing the hidden side of an issue can help shift it significantly. Lending energetic support to these kinds of “ah-ha� shifts can help make the change permanent.

If you’d like to discover and change hidden aspects of yourself, come to my Spring Cleaning for the Soul workshop on April 17 in Hawaii (Maui, Kihei).

I use an energy-based “issue detector� method to go behind-the-scenes and uncover hidden blockages and limiting beliefs that no longer serve you. Once these are brought into the light of consciousness I use my energy-based toolkit to find the “just right� techniques to raise the frequency and support lasting change.

Right after the workshop I’m offering training in these techniques starting April 18.
