CHESS: Wow!

I just saw "Searching for Bobby Fischer" ~ wow! It makes you feel like learning chess! I had no idea chess could be such a fast game ~ I love the scenes in Washington Square Park: what a great beginning to Josh's chess experience... And how fantastic that in real life he was good in many sports and merged his chess learning into his later study of Tai Chi and became exceptional at that too!

CNW: Wrinkles disappearing!

A couple of days after I started drinking structured water, I noticed my face looked subtly less lined. Nothing that anyone else would notice, but I could see it (bumbling past the mirror when I was half-asleep, it made me do a double take!). And now, six weeks later, a friend said to me a couple of days ago: "Your face looks different. It's less lined ~ you've got less wrinkles." Wow!

CNW: Avoiding Delhi Belly

I've been curious for some time about using a CN water structuring device in places like Mexico and India ~ whether it would protect you against giardia and other minute infestations.

HEALTH: Surgery prep and recovery

There's a lot we can do to prepare for surgery and to recouperate afterwards. Any surgery is invasive, energetically; it's good to support your system so it returns to a healthy level of balance. Here's a small website we put together on my sister's surgery care program.

CNW: Google has found us!

I'm excited ~ I just googled various combinations of "structured water" and in some of them we come once and even twice in the top ten! Especially good are gardening ones, like "gardening with structured water" >> three times in the top five!

CNW: No fuzz

What's the big deal about a clean tongue? Here's what:

CNW: Clear of plaque

C, a friend who installed a water structuring device a few days ago, told me on the phone just now that she was mystified because her 'plate' (false teeth) is clean for the first time.

HEALTH: "Magic Energy Balls"

Here's my sister Lindis's recipe for high-energy high-protein balls ~

CNW: Trees give objective "proof"

I'm very excited by the latest info from Victoria White about the fruit trees in her homestead: all of them planted the same time, all of them receive the same organic soil amendments, all of them on a drip irrigation system, but some of them are smaller than the others. Why? Because they were not on structured water until this spring! Wow! The bigger trees were all on structured water from 2009 on. So the trees themselves provide proof that there is something else going on here besides great organic gardening techniques and a very green thumb! (You're welcome to look up the details and photos of neighbouring TerraSante sites of fruit trees, distinctly structured/non-structured, and then Victoria's TS site with structured water introduced in two phases, which I'll be updating in the next day or so with photos and trunk measurements)

CNW: An update from the navel

I've been pretty quiet for a week because I've been dealing with some health symptoms. Good ones ~ indications that my system is getting cleansed. I think it's a continuation of the cleansing that's been going on since I started drinking structured water. I don't think most people would have these symptoms or notice them if they did ~ I'm more aware because I'm writing this blog on structured water and want it to be accurate and honest, and because my body is in pretty good health generally (I'm vegan, eat 98% raw food, all organic, no medications, light weight, excellent energy), so if my system is cleaning out, it's quite obvious to me.

HEALTH: Resonating with what we want instead

We’re all drawn to certain things – particular colours, certain kinds of music, special friends. We sometimes say we feel like we 'resonate' with them – and we’re quite right, we do: we are on the same wavelength.

The trouble is, we not only resonate with things that are good for us (things, ideas, places and people that bring us greater health and energy), but also with things that are bad for us (they make us unwell, off balance, disoriented).

HEALTH: Exercise ...even a few minutes

There’s a great story about Mahatma Gandhi being asked by a mother, “Please tell my son to stop eating sugar.” He told the two of them to come back the following week. When they came before him again, he said gently: “My child, try to eat less sugar.” The mother asked why he had not said that the previous week, and Gandhi explained: "At that time, I was still eating sugar myself."

CNW: Someone else's experience

My friend Patreace, who installed her CN water structuring unit a day or two after she helped me set up mine, says her finger tips, which have always been hard and dry, are smooth: "they've never felt so soft" ~ it feels like they are getting rehydrated from the inside, she said.

CNW: Hair, wrinkles & BMs

We installed the CN water structuring device last Friday, 30 July 2010. Here are changes I've noticed since then ~ in the last five days.

HEALTH: Sunlight

I've never forgotten reading about someone with multiple sclerosis who spent hours outside every day, sitting or lying in dappled sunlight or shade ~ and credited the sunlight with their recouperation from MS.

HEALTH: Food ~ high fats and low carbs or...?

The meat and dairy industry has bombarded us for decades on the health benefits of eating foods that are high in protein (meat, fish, cheese, eggs) and high in calcium (milk, cheese, yogurt) every day, preferably several times a day. But anywhere in the world where people eat the Standard American Diet (SAD), you’ll find obesity and ill health. Visit Japan (by internet if not in person) and you’ll see American-sized overweight teenagers. Closer to home, ask any of your overweight friends or relatives how often they eat any of these high-protein or high-calcium foods: Once a month? Or once or more a day?

HEALTH: Diets ~ which one?

There are hundreds of products and programs out there for losing weight and gaining weight, but it's questionable whether they contribute anything to our overall health. How do we know what is healthy and what isn’t?

HEALTH: Five variables

I didn’t get how dangerous weight can be until I read about sleep apnea.

It's one thing to know that when you are overweight you are more at risk for heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma and certain types of cancer: those are things everybody may face down the road sometime, if ever. But obstructive apnea is right here and now: a risk of dying anytime you go to sleep… Wow, that really hit home.

CNW: Structured water cleans as it goes

I'd read that structured water cleans sediment and gunk out of pipes (and the human body, too) so I decided to see if I could get structured water to mend the non-functioning mister on my floor fan.

CNW: Is structured water different?

A friend of mine is all jazzed about getting a structured water device, but her son is very skeptical. That's fine, but it made me think ~ for someone who is skeptical, what proof is there that structured water is very different from tap water? So I came up with three easy checks that anyone can do with no elaborate equipment.

I more or less did these checks myself, before and after installing the CN structuring device. It was fun to see the "objective" difference in my own tap water once it was structured. Otherwise, just take samples of any old tap water or bottled water and compare it with water that's structured.

Here's what you do:

CNW: It's here!

Yey, the CN water structuring device arrived today! (Actually it arrived 2 days ago, but my neighbour at the main house didn't realize I was here.) That's fast: I confirmed my order Monday and it arrived Wednesday morning.

And a resounding Yey! for friend Patreace who drove over here after work and set it up for me. We immediately tasted the water. It is delicious: it's got that "soft" feel to it.

Making lemonade out of the big lemon: cancer is all of that, and more. In case you are using your health issue as an opportunity to discover how to really nourish yourself and discover what's important for you, inside and out, you may be feeling overwhelmed and not sure where to begin. I'm listing just five suggestions here, pretty much all to do with nutrition. Each one is a great place to begin, so do any or all of them, depending on what you can manage ~ going into action is what counts!

CNW: High hopes of the CN water structuring device!

My Clayton Nolte water structuring device is due to arrive any time. Can't wait!

I heard about this device a few days ago during a visit to TerraSante near Tucson. We dropped in to meet Victoria White who has quite a reputation locally for the abundance of fruits and veggies in her little homestead garden: thousands of peaches, apricots, nectarines and apples from trees that were planted on her property and her neighbours' properties in January 2008 ~ but while her trees have consistently produced bumper crops, their trees have yet to produce more than one or two fruits, if that. Hm...

CNW: Wishlist

Here's a shortlist of what I'm expecting/hoping for from my new (yet-to-arrive) CN structured water device:

CNW: Chlorine in structured water?

I woke up yesterday very anxious about chlorine in structured water and whether that smell and taste would disappear once the water is structured using the Clayton Nolte device, so I did a bunch of research on it yesterday.

BOOKS: And There Was Light by Jacques Lusseyran

Extraordinary autobiography (childhood to age 21) of someone who went blind at 8, established a major Resistance movement during the occupation of Paris when he was 16, and survived internment in Buchenwald.

BOOKS: Healthy at 100 by John Robbins

I nearly didn't bother to read this book. I'm so glad I did - it's full of interesting insights and some very moving stories... And he very sweetly emphaizes that it's never too late: the positive effects of changes at any age are significant.

BOOKS: Quantum Change Made Easy by Chloe Faith Wordsworth

"In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?" At the end of her well-written book, Quantum Change Made Easy, Chloe Wordsworth addresses Steven Hawking's question in a fascinating analysis: she takes the 9 Keys of Resonance Repatterning, the system she founded, developed and teaches for personal transformation, self-healing and achieving the best of who we are, and answers Hawking's question step by step.

POD: Moses 2 ~ Mixed marriage

Moses is incredible! He is totally a man of our time ~ adopted as a baby, goes from slave to millionaire, discovers his roots and risks his life in order to stand up for his people, not once (when he protects the Hebrew slave and by mistake murders the overseer) but over and over again in a period of decades when he confronts and challenges the mega-powers of his time (the Pharaoh, the priests and the courtiers were no easy pushovers, they were... well, just as greedy and unprincipled and politically savvy and ruthless as the top of the power pyramid in today's scenario); and then in addition to this, there's the whole multi-cultural, displaced, inter-racial, inter-religious aspect of the guy: Who doesn't relate to some or all of that!

POD: Moses 1 ~ The Ethiopian connection

I'm fascinated by Moses. I don't mean the Great Prophet aspect: the Leader of the Hebrews who came down from Sinai with ten commandments written in stone. OK, granted, that is all pretty mind-blowing ~ but it tends to just be part of what many of us learned in our childhood, so we take it for granted without thinking about it (beyond rejecting or accepting).

No, one of the things about Moses that grabs my attention is this: ...More

HEALTH: The grape cure

End of summer is a great time of year for grapes! Just make sure you buy organic so you know you're not taking in a heavy dose of pesticides and chemicals.

In a couple of conversations recently, it came out that the person was struggling a bit with cravings for certain foods they knew were not healthy. Purely on a physical level, cravings for unhealthy foods, whether it’s high-fry or coffee, and even cravings for animal foods when you're a committed vegetarian, can be due to toxic waste held in our system.

If you suffer from this,

BOOKS: For book lovers

When you were a kid, did you ever read novels in classes you found boring? I remember when I was thirteen or so, a friend and I were romping through all the novels so temptingly provided by our English teacher and when we could get away with it (in Latin, I seem to remember), we would spend the whole period with a book in our lap, totally absorbed and more than happy ~ while the rest of the group, come to think of it, must have been pretty bored, judging by how they played up the poor teacher...

Anyway, I'm still addicted to reading. Love it! So I'll sometimes post titles I've found particularly good on things like health, self-healing, and other things like that. You can find them under BOOKS.

HEALTH: Don't exercise, cellercise!

Dave Hall, who spent years refining mini-trampolines and rebounders to develop what he calls a cellerciser, has just come out with a new DVD. I saw it a few weeks ago and have been cellercising every day since then, several times a day. That's unbelievably impressive for a no-exercise addict like me!
