Have you ever been touched by a random act of Kindness, the kind that comes unexpectedly from a stranger?
I have, and I still remember some of those moments that touched my heart. When I was a young mother with a husband in Vietnam and a very tight budget, I remember standing in line counting out pennies for a gallon of milk, when the checker smiled at me and said, “Keep your money, I’ll take care of it. Go home and enjoy that little one.” I left with tears in my eyes. At the time I was working retail and a few months later things were a little better and there was another young mother counting out coins to buy a pair of socks for her baby, I did the same thing and will never forget her smile back at me.

Before we even begin to explain the pricing, we’d like to say that we are very proud that our Shields are handcrafted – one at a time, with a great deal of skill and intention. They are made in Montana, USA – not China, not India, not South America, not any place other than Montana. We respect work done by other countries, and at the same time, we want you to know that our BioElectric Shield will always be handcrafted by conscious, loving people in rural Montana.
I received an email the other day from a woman who lost her Shield. She was upset because she originally paid $140 for her Silver/Brass Shield in 1998 and wanted to purchase a replacement for the same price.
When I explained that the cost of silver had increased, it was clear that she thought we were gouging and increasing prices simply because we could. I knew, of course, that wasn’t the case, but that prompted me to do a little research. Continue reading →
Child abuse experts say that psychological abuse in young children can be just as damaging to their physical, mental and emotional health as a slap, punch, or kick. Dr. Harriet MacMillan, a professor in the departments of psychiatry and behavioral neurosciences and pediatrics of McMaster University’s Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine and the Offord Centre for Child Studies, was quoted as saying, “We are talking about extremes and the likelihood of harm, or risk of harm, resulting from the kinds of behavior that make a child feel worthless, unloved or unwanted,” said this after giving some extreme examples of physical abuse or neglect, like a mother leaving baby alone all day.
Belittling, denigrating, terrorizing, exploiting, emotional unresponsiveness, or corrupting a child to the point where their well-being is put at risk is an especially prevalent and difficult to diagnose form of child abuse and neglect. It’s the day-to-day messages that get yelled at the child or sometimes even said very matter-of-factly, letting them know they are a bad, terrible person, that they weren’t wanted in the first place or are defective or unlovable in some say Continue reading →
Body Piercing is everywhere these days – and sometimes in some unexpected places.
I was in an airport recently and saw a woman with what must have been a naval piercing – she actually had what looked like about a 3″ arrow showing thru her very tight pink dress. I tried to get a photo, but alas, the lighting wasn’t good.
Okay, so that was an unusual case – but it’s not uncommon to see someone with their eyebrows and nose pierced and maybe even their tongue. Continue reading →
If you’re feeling like you can’t quite get a handle on the chaos around you, reach for a combination of smoky quartz and onyx.
Onyx and Smoky together are said ground your energy in a profound way that goes deeper bringing clarity and focus by connecting your heart and mind. The combination of thought and emotion supercharges and strengthens goals and manifestation. Vision that comes from your soul rather than just your ego will support you in making choices to bring forth your highest vision.
Smoky quartz is grounding, removes negativity, helps with manifestation of dreams and inspirations and enhances organization (and that’s just for a start). Continue reading →
There are times we all feel stuck or sometimes we just think we are procrastinating. This is a theme that has shown up lately in a couple of Facebook groups and emails from friends. In each case the person was sharing that they just couldn’t seem to get moving and kept procrastinating.
We’ve all been there…and I don’t know about you, but I often end up beating myself up for not getting on with it, not getting things done. Then, luckily, oftentimes I’m able to step back and take another look.
I do sometimes find that even though I’m inspired there doesn’t “seem to be” motivation to do…but, that isn’t necessarily what it seems. I have found that often when I just can’t seem to do what I think needs to be done that what’s really happening is that I’m waiting for the rest of the information – either as a “download” of info, or sometimes there’s a person or other bit of information that I don’t yet have and when that drops into place then it’s full forward action. The trick is to acknowledge when that’s happening and not beat ourselves up about it.
If you’re in a “stuck” place, maybe you aren’t really stuck. Maybe you’re simply waiting…allowing…the energy, information to finally come together. Continue reading →
The BioInitiative Report from Scientists who Care about Us!
We just received the latest 1479 page BioInitiative Report from the Bioelectromagnetics Society.
The Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) promotes the annual exchange of ideas to advance the science of natural and applied electromagnetic fields in biology and medicine.
BEMS is an international society with members from 40 countries and regions around the world. Their BioInitiative Report 2012 is filled with studies you’re going to want to know about. This past year, they reviewed 1800 new studies on the effects of bioelectromagnetic (EMF, EMR, electromagnetic radiation) energy on humans and animals.* Continue reading →
