The BioElectric Shield Healthy Lifestyle Newsletter
February 2009 - Special Valentine's Edition
Happy Valentines Day (well almost)
I know we just sent out a newsletter, and I promise we're not going to start bombarding you with weekly newsletters.
I'm still on a high after a weekend of connecting with a lot of people at the Healthy Living Expo in Minneapolis and want to share some of those stories with you.
It's been many years since I did a show and got to talk to old friends and customers and new friends and potential customers in person. It was fun, exhausting, and fascinating. There are always so many different people and each one has a different reason for needing a Shield.
We talk a lot about the fact that the Shield protects you from the electromagnetic radiation, and that's definitely a concern. But this show reminded me once again how many stories there are and what an amazing tool the Shield can be for health, personal growth, emotional stability and even empowerment.
It occurred to me that sharing other people's stories might be interesting and also help you see areas in which the Shield either is or could be helping you or loved ones as well. I'm going to use all completely made up names here, so I won't be giving any secrets away.
Standing Your Ground, Staying in Your own Center
I talked to a lovely woman named Jane. She had just had a conversation with her twenty year old daughter and was really upset. Her daughter had described her mother as walking wounded. Jane had just gone through a third divorce and was feeling like she didn't have a clue as to why she kept finding men who promised her the world and who not only didn't deliver, but took from her instead. Her energy is extremely open and loving and trusting, which can be good, but only to a point. As we talked I could see that it was very easy for her to be manipulated by other people's desires and emotions.
I am sometimes gifted with an ability to sense what is happening in someone's energy field when they put on a Shield. This was one of those cases. As soon as Joan put on the Shield I could feel her energy strengthen, and ground through her body into the earth. It was extremely dramatic. I asked Joan to stand up and take the Shield off for a moment. I then had her close her eyes and allow her body to sway. Then I put the Shield back on her and had her repeat the process. She opened her eyes in surprise and said, "I feel like I'm totally firm, and can't be pushed over. I feel so strong and different. Wow."
As we talked I suggested that she do this exercise whenever she was feeling that she needed to stand her ground. I know the Shield isn't a magic bullet and can't solve all one's problems, but it sure can go a long way in providing strength and stability to allow you to deal with them in a new way. I felt so good when she walked out wearing her new Shield. I'm looking forward to hearing back from her about the changes coming in her life.
Letting in the Love/Shielding out the Bad
I talked to a few people in the healing professions that were truly exhausted. They are doing their jobs because they care about people and want to help. But as often happens they were giving too much of their own energies and suffering in the process. One man, Mark, worked in a facility with 180 critical care patients. He was dealing with people in pain, in fear and a plethora of emotions. The intensity of all this would be difficult for almost anyone to withstand. He was exhausted, and often came home feeling drained and off balance. As we talked it was clear that he was being affected by all the emotions he was dealing with but also with people who were so needy they were basically energy vampires. I explained that the Shield would help by strengthening his energy so the vampires couldn't get to him, and also that it would deflect their fear and emotions. He was excited, but then worried that if the negative emotions were being deflected, maybe the Shield would also deflect the love and positive experiences as well.
Here's the good news. The Shield can deflect the negativity and fear and still let in the love and harmonious emotions. The way this has been explained to me is that emotions have a wave frequency and peak at different points along that wave. Negative emotions and fear tend to have very high and low peaks, while peaceful, loving emotions are much smoother. The Shield strengthens your energy frequency in such a way that the spiky, high peak and trough emotions are deflected, but the good ones are at a frequency that is in harmony with are still allowed in. In fact, since you're no longer struggling so much to try to keep out the negative emotions, it's easier to be open to and experience the loving, joyful emotions. The word grace keeps coming to mind here...my feeling is that the Shield allows you to feel that sense of grace, love and gratitude.
Unfortunately, Mark didn't get a Shield. He was absolutely thrilled to have found something that he felt could make a huge difference in his daily life. He's one of those big, kind, compassionate men who just gives so much all the time. His wife came over and wasn't at all open to the idea of him having a Shield. She felt that he should be able to do all this himself. Her Qi Gong teacher had told her that everyone should be able to Shield themselves if they followed the practice. Mark agreed, but said that he felt it took so much of his concentration to do it, that he wasn't able to keep it up all the time.
I was thinking about this last night some more. I, too, know all the techniques to Shield myself, but it never quite worked for me. When I did it myself, I felt that it not only took too much concentration to maintain, but it was also creating more of a wall of resistance and fear. I felt closed off and isolated. Wearing the Shield, I can focus my concentration on just being present with people, or creating, or writing, or whatever is in the moment. I'm not in that place of feeling the need to protect myself and be on guard all the time.
Some people do have a natural protection, and she was probably one of them, so didn't understand how hard it can be. Not being able to keep that protection up isn't a sign of weakness; it's just the way some people's energy works. The Shield can help by allowing you to use your focus and concentration for the positive, loving, creative parts of your life.
My experience and that of many others has been that they feel more love in their lives wearing a Shield.
Being at the show was such a great experience. I met so many incredible people working to make people's lives better in whatever way they could.
One of the women I met was Martii Guidim a partner in Intentional Serenity. The minute I met her I just loved her. As we talked she shared her story and the vision of Intentional Serenity. "Empowering children and families to live in their possibilities."
Martii and her partner Teena Dietz and their team are working with families to give them hope and new tools to create lives with possibilities and intentionality. I just love the idea of a new generation of children who know that they aren't victims, who can take charge of their lives. It's heart-warming and adds a lot of hope. I'm planning on doing an interview with Martii and will have more to share of their story next month.
Please share your stories
If you have a project you are involved in or know about that is making a difference, please share with us, and we'll add it to our "Giving Back" page. The more we can all network and share the love, the more there is.
A few weeks ago a good friend sent me a link to the website of a friend of hers. Corinna just had a feeling that I would resonate with Lisa's music. How right she was.
The website has links to a lot of Lisa's music which is very moving. Within a few minutes I was online ordering both her CDs, at only $12.00 each and minimal shipping it was a bargain.
This morning my husband caught me singing along to the music as I worked on a couple of new necklaces. This would sound like a good thing, except that I was wearing headphone so all he could hear was my out-of-tune version. But at least he could see I was enjoying myself.
If you log on to her site you'll hear " Protect the Children" which brought tears to my eyes.
In the spirit of the LOVE...treat yourself or someone you love to a Heart Shield.
Did you know that it's actually possible to own more than one Shield at a time?
Some people have their "regular" Shield, but also have a heart Shield for days when they want something a little lighter and to share that feeling of love.
You may not want to wear a heart all the time...but it can be a nice change.
Tooting My Own Horn
This was inspired by the energy of New Year's Eve. I've been pondering these sapphires for 6 months and suddenly they came together with a string of green quartz brios. I started off with a simple one strand necklace, but when my husband called it "cute", I got more creative and by adding a gold chain was able to stretch one string of sapphires into a 2 strand necklace that is stunning rather than cute.
I wore the necklace to a drumming/meditation (great way to bring in the New Year) and the theme of the evening was all about intentionality and dreams. When I got home I looked up the properties of the yellow and rose sapphires and it's all about intentionality and prosperity. It felt like an incredible way to celebrate the New Year by making a necklace that has such wonderful properties. I think every woman in the group wore this necklace for a while on New Year's Eve...and everyone had a hard time taking it off. I sold it on New Year's Day to my favorite customer (some of her comments are below)...but she was lovely enough to let me hang on to it for a few days...I wore it constantly, and it even looked great with my leopard-print bathrobe:>)
The comment I got from the customer who bought this necklace along with a lot of others, "I can't believe I only own One award-winning necklace. I feel like a winner when I wear it."
I'm excited to have my efforts recognized by my fellow artists. Who knows this may just be the beginning of my award-winning ways.
The first weekend of the month is coming up, so it's a great time to hang your Shield in natural light either in a window, or preferably, outside. (More info) We usually just keep it on the cord or chain, and loop it over a lawn chair. This allows it to hang freely and absorb the energy from the sun.
IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE A SUNNY DAY for you to recharge your Shield. It's not the light that the shield needs; it's the energy vibration from the sun that recharges the crystals. However, bright sunlight does make it charge faster. So, if it's sunny, leave it out for 3 continuous hours; if cloudy, for 6 continuous hours. If you are hanging it in a window that blocks certain parts of the light spectrum, leave it for 8 hours.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR SHIELD OUT IN THE MOONLIGHT! The moon is reflected energy from the sun, thus it pulls energy away from your Shield. If you ever forget, hang your Shield out for twice as many hours as it was left in the moonlight. To insure it is functioning at 100%, you can send it in for recharging and repolishing. Our consultant examines each Shield that is sent in to make sure it has received a full charge from our crystal room.
Suggestion for worry-free recharging: Recharge your Shield during the New Moon (dark) phase. That way if you do forget and leave it out overnight, there's no harm done, as there is no moonlight shining on it to drain it.
Different Shields for Different People
One of our distributors came to the show and spent some time with us. It was fun meeting her and talking in person. She's been wearing a Shield for a couple of years because she is extremely electro-sensitive. When she got the Shield, she felt a relief in that she no longer felt that sense of fear and panic.
Rita's friend Elaine was with her and we did muscle testing with both of them to see which Shield was best. Rita's silver and gold Shield was perfect for her. Elaine, however, tested strongest with the white gold Shield. Rita explained to me that she felt that meant that she wasn't as advanced as her friend, and was disappointed that she didn't also need the more powerful Shield.
Let me explain something here...the Shield and which one works best for you isn't about your spiritual advancement or anything remotely like that. It's simply about finding the Shield that is the best support for your energy field. It's not a competition and it's doesn't mean you are less than someone else if you need a more basic Shield...and it also doesn't mean that the person who might need a stronger Shield is weaker. It's totally about balance and what provides that balance for you.
Have a joyful and loving month

“I seem to have weathered a 10-hour time change with a minimum of jet lag in both directions. While I am getting a lot less sleep per night, my energy has not flagged. My thinking is clear, and calm, not irritable. During the last 2 months I have been closely exposed to many people who have had colds and flu. In spite of being extremely busy, in spite of having taken a grueling trip to Israel and back, and in spite of having to endure a difficult and stressful home life, I have not had one day of illness since wearing the Shield. I am flabbergasted!”
