Edgar Cayce and Indigo Children (book)

This is a combination of two of the most frequently visited topics on my site, so I'm including this post as a special reason for those who have been searching for this information.
I have this book, so it's twice as important for me to speak up as a Messenger as one of the earlier generations of psychic children born as the forerunners of the Indigo generations.  It certainly can be frustrating to know things that adults don't want to hear or listen to because a child is trying to communicate on levels that adults can't comprehend.

Understanding Psychic Children,

Edgar Cayce on the Indigo Children
Peggy Day and Susan Gale
Paperback - 186 pages

According to American mystic Edgar Cayce, groups of amazing and unusual individuals would begin to incarnate on earth late in the twentieth century and beyond. They would come to be called Indigo Children.

These children can be categorized into three different groups:  Psychic, Indigo, and Crystal, each having his or her own amazing gifts and talents.

This book shows how these children can be recognized and nurtured as the special people they truly are. The authors also share research and stories about these incredible souls and discuss the many facilities and groups that work to cultivate the children.

Dhanwantari - The Complete Guide to the Ayurvedic Life

In the early winter of January 1976, my astrology teacher and mentor showed me a book which he said had changed his life.  In it, he said, I would find a new way of medical ideas and a change in lifestyle:  the way of Ayurvedic.  I was fascinated by this offer, and sure enough, this book has been one of my favorites.  Even though some of the recommendations are new and perhaps unusual in the Western world, it still makes sense to learn from this amazing and powerful guide.

Dhanwantari by Harish Johari is a vast and practical presentation of the Ayurveda addressing diet, breathing, meditation, bathing, sleeping, exercise, medicine, jewelry, and sex. Over the past 20 years, Harish Johari's books and workshops on India's Ayurveda traditions of cooking, massage, numerology, gemology, meditation, and Tantra have changed the lives of countless individuals in the West and have established Johari's reputation as the foremost ambassador of the Ayurveda life. Now, for the first time, Harish Johari's vast knowledge of Ayurveda and Yoga has been distilled into one convenient volume.

Named for the classical Indian god of medicine (Ayurveda), Dhanwantari, this book is a complete guide to living the Ayurveda way. Chapters focus on diet, breathing, bathing, meditation, sleeping, exercising, medicine, jewelry, and sex. Anyone seeking a logical, scientific, and practical set of principles for daily life will discover an excellent guide in the time-tested system Ayurveda presented here. By improving the health of their bodies and minds, individuals will find that a greatly expanded breadth of life experiences is suddenly open to them.

Fresh juice for health and anti-aging

As a music blogger, I know that Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones gets a lot of laughs from my comments about his craggy appearance. I know he had an abusive way of handling drugs. But Keith is an avid fan of good nutrition--and that's the point: live your life, but take care of your body if you like to ramp up your recreational activities.

Our diets are deadly: we are digging our graves with knives and forks. Never mind how much we eat--it's also how badly we do it too. So what can you do to help yourself (and maybe change the way you look and feel?) Juice: fresh vegetables, and some fruit. Just ask Keith how it helps. (Not his face--his liver!)

What to juice, how, and how much? Mostly vegetables; fruits tend to add too much (natural) sugar, which can overpower your pancreas and the ability to control insulin. I try to do this on a weekly basis--three times per week if possible. daily--and yes, it does make a great difference in my energy, how I look, and how I feel. 

I recommend the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth (available at Wal-Mart), and it's durable and @$59. I've given away at least 10 as gifts over the years. I like to use a large container to capture everything, and shop often at the grocery store for bargain prices when items come on sale in the produce department. I agree about organic foods, but right now, I'm on a tight budget and can't get as much as I'd like.

My juicing contains on a rotating basis:

broccoli (or cauli-broccoli)        cauliflower            lemon         tomato                  beet              parsley       cilantro                carrots            celery  ginger         garlic
apples        anise                     kale                      Napa cabbage  red cabbage    Bok Choy      
potato      cranberries               peppers 
cucumber   Green zucchini        yellow squash   pears        grapes                    romaine lettuce

The ginger and garlic cloves are an extra; ginger cleans the blood very well as does garlic. Do NOT try onion--you'll be sorry! It will ruin the taste. I do assure you the ginger, lemon, and garlic alone will blow your nose clean, but you'll feel like a turbo-charged engine from head to toe.

Don't be surprised how full you feel, and maybe need to skip a meal: that's fine! Juicing will add a HUGE amount of nutrients directly into your bloodstream.

If you or someone likes to feed small animals, the pulp is an excellent source. It can also be used (without the garlic?) for breads, and with, for soup or meat loaf. (Like I said...the budget.)

And no: as we age, we do NOT need as much food. In fact, it has been proven that eating less food (but more nutritiously) will keep us alive longer and in better health. Forget that silly "What's in your wallet?" commercial: try "How are YOU planning to live beyond your 70s?"

Teaching Gifted and Autistic: the New Children of Earth

I can say with the greatest concern for anyone who has a child with autism that there is wisdom here that should be understood and explored.  As I have stated before on this blog, the old ways of teaching and evaluating our children MUST be reexamined and reconsidered. 

For further information, Dr. Schweitzer has made a video as well as her web site at


 The New children, Nova Children come in all varieties, Indigo, Crystal, Octerines, Magenta, Star and there will be many more. They all have one thing in common, they live, move and breathe in the reality of wholeness. They show us a new harmony, a tapestry of Divine Law. Any interruption in the way they process life with this harmonious flow and ebb of energy literally causes them to ‘bounce off the walls’. There is need to understand the way their energy moves and functions, so it may be used in a productive way. This is a worldwide phenomenon. 

‘New Children of Earth’ reveals Twenty-Two ‘Creation Codes’, rhythms of the New children, the way they move, function, maintain balance, accelerate their development and most important the way they bring knowledge into wisdom and love to humanity. This is break-through information on how children are born with an expanded spirit of wholeness for the creation of a new reality.`

The New children of earth have come as forerunners of new ways of learning, perceiving and being. Their presence is an indication that we are changing and new abilities are needed, especially in times of disaster. If cultivated properly the children have within them the ability to deal with the unexpected because they are able to be 'fully involved, aware and focused on many things at once'.

The codes presented in this book not only show how to cultivate their abilities, but they also show how to release the trauma of disasters. The many children affected by today's events of 9/11, tsunami, war and the hurricanes could be easily helped by applying the information presented in the New Children of Earth.

Walking and running--and learning--is "hard to do"?

"I can't."
Why is that?
"Because it's hard."
Oh. The assignment was difficult to do? The class is hard to learn? Did you try?
"Yes, but it's hard. It's not easy to do."
Excuse me. THIS is hard: learning to walk on blades. Learning to RUN on blades. That's "hard to do." Not learning to do something; no. 
You may not LIKE learning to do something, or it may be DIFFICULT, but it's not "hard to do." It does require effort, concentration, determination, persistence, and application of your thoughts.
But it's really probable that ANY class you take--or project that you need to complete--is a lot easier if you believe you can do it--rather than being a child and learning to walk on blades.
Just ask these kids. Or better yet--look at their faces.
They're so at ease that it's almost funny to imagine how they don't even think about what struggles they had to overcome. One girl is almost bored: "Will you please go ahead with the starting signal so we can get on with this race?!"

By the way, school is DIFFICULT at times. It may be a class or subject that requires you to THINK or apply yourself--and MAYBE there's no video game or computer to use to solve the concept of the subject. Just imagine that: "I can't use a computer? That's impossible!"
Oh? Really? You mean that's harder than learning to run--or walk--on blades?

By the way, let me assure you about something if you're 18 years or older: the toughest test you ever had to take is something you didn't even realize at the time. It's the most important, significant, virtually-demanded-by-social-institutions-test you ever knew.
And you more than likely passed it and never thought twice about it.
Your driver's license.
Imagine that: if you DON'T have one, you need an alternate form of identification. And that's not something that's easy to get. Nor do people understand why you may choose NOT to drive--even though it may have a reasonable answer. You don't HAVE to drive either. But people will expect you to get a license, even for identification purposes.
So that's the toughest test you ever took. Because without that license, you have to do a lot more to PROVE your identification. 
That's easy.

Running--or walking--on blades? 
That's hard to do.
Unless you're a kid who learned and doesn't think twice about it. And they didn't listen to "I can't" in their mind.

So don't tell ME the class--or the assignment--or WHATEVER--is "hard to do" if you didn't apply effort. Or else I'll have to find a way for the kids to write and tell you what they think about "hard to do." They can teach it better than I could.

Life Cycles: Women & Men

Oh, my.  When did we get older and turn into our parents?  (Or maybe even our grandparents?!)  Well, it's part of the Cycles of Life--and we all will experience them--the good and the not-so-good.   But we all have to confront this--because no one outruns the inevitable clock of Mortality.  Yes, we have options: some including hormone replacement, ending our marriage, or maybe--just learning to adapt.  Either way for either gender:  it's a look in the mirror that makes the face we knew that much more different--for better or worse.  Along with this comes decisions to be made--and our bodies will tell us what we don't want to hear but need to respect:  we are here on this earth for a varied number of years.  What we have accomplished may not really be measured in a paycheck, nor may it be in the wealth we accumulated--or even in the size and measure of our family.

Joan Borysenko looks at the uniqueness of the feminine life cycle, concentrating on the three components that make women different from men:  the spiritual lessons, the physical changes, and the mental attunement gained from relationships, social networking, childbearing years, and ultimately, the loss of a husband or partner and the rechanneling of goals set aside in early years.  Borysenko uses the birth-to-death story of a fictitious female to show how women connect via right-brain activity to the wholeness of life, and what steps are taken and passed by through the years of raising a family (later to be walked in again in a new view after menopause has released the body from obligations), and the empowerment of purpose and goals that were set aside are now to be reclaimed with new vigor and fulfillment.  What Borysenko truly establishes is that the Feminine Life Cycle is one of continued gifts and blessings of Knowledge--and that women of all ages are more attuned to maintaining and preparing society for the repeating renewal of life and death.  

Ultimately, she reveals how females are prepared by the triad of life cycles (biology, psychology, and spirituality) to be Guardians of society, and how to prepare not only themselves for significant gains, but their families and partners.  In one continued thread of detail, she explains how neurotransmitters and the endocrine system prepare a female for a lifetime of messages not only about herself and the needs of her body, but how to incorporate it into an ongoing evolving tutorial to be respected and recognized as vital and unique.

I've personally bought and given at least 50 of Borysenko's books as gifts; I've found them available at for as low as one cent plus s/h, and I've given away a similar number of Sheehy's.  It does not matter which gender is the recipient; I strongly urge both men and women to learn not only about themselves, but about each other--and to share the wisdom that will be found.  The results can only be for the betterment of someone's life--and potentially, the gain of our future as the collective family of Man and Womankind.

Gail Sheehy does a remarkable job in gathering men of different ages and occupations and getting them to do what men are most reluctant to reveal:  what's on their mind about the process of aging, the fears that go with it, what thresholds have been crossed, and how the experiences have changed the participants.  These vital parts of the male life cycle are not Sheehy's words, but those of the men whose lives make this book worthwhile.  It is their wisdom shared, of gains, losses, pains, worries, and ultimately, their insights.  A key is the realization that they  are no longer King of the Mountain--that they're vulnerable to physical changes that are frightening.  Sheehy lets them show why as men, we are reluctant to share them with other men lest we be seen as weak and incapable, and unwilling to share them with the women in our lives lest we be seen as undesirable and lacking the potency and strength that was our banner in younger years. 

Men, here's what awaits ALL of us in the XY-chromosome future:  the fight for our competitive nature (the buck deer at its best), power and achievement, reflections on what-could-have-been, then a loss of muscle tone, hair down the bathroom drain (and the bald patch at the crown of the scalp), and--yes, it's real: "andropause," aka "male menopause" (such as not performing as well in bed when it counts because testosterone levels have significantly declined).  Inevitably, there comes the time of mentorship and reflection.
