It is important to realize that in the world of energy, likes, not opposites, attract. If my boundaries aren't clear for example, I vibrate the energy pattern "I have wiggly boundaries," and should not be surprised when people step over them. The energy is "dumb," and that's important to remember as well."This horrible thing happened to me: you should have compassion!" one might cry, as if such things happen at random. Such things happen because energy is reading energy all the time, matching with what it matches and bypassing what it doesn't match. The so-called "law of attraction" is not personal; it simply does what it does, without playing favorites and without exceptions. Still, some jump to blame at hearing this:"You're saying I attracted that?!"Did [yesterday's Reiki] client attract his broken arm? Did he want his mother to break his arm? No. He did not want his arm broken, and he did not attract the injury. But his arm did, his energy did, unbeknownst to him. Clearing that [longstanding energy pattern], he is free from drawing injury to it again. Excerpted from BostonReikiHealing.com. Read the full article here.
I was thrilled to receive my first order of kidney support herbs and plant essences from my online pet store last week. But once I'd unpacked it, there was the matter of the dreaded peanuts. What to do? I knew they weren't recyclable. Right? I headed for the computer to double check and found this:
Traditional packing peanuts are made out of polystyrene and are now color coded to indicate the origin of the material they contain. Polystyrene takes hundreds of years to decompose in nature, so recycling it is key.Mine were pure white, though. So I kept reading. Happily, I found a bright spot on the topic:
Some [peanuts] are now made from a vegetable derivative and closely resemble their plastic counterparts. If they disintegrate in water, they are made from vegetable matter.So said eHow. Off to the kitchen I went to test mine. When I needed the weight of a spoon to keep one down, I wasn't hopeful. I picked up another peanut and tore it in two. It sure looked like plastic to me grimace, grimace. Visions of writing the online pet store swam in my head. I find it troubling when big merchants like Starbucks, for god's sake! don't recycle, when their practices seem environmentally unconscious.
I should have known better in this instance though, and wasn't I delighted to find that before long my sunken peanut had completely disintegrated--hooray! Suddenly I had a box of cornstarch on my hands, rather than nonbiodegradable, toxic landfill. (They'd said as much on their packing slip, incidentally, but I hadn't read it until after the fact. Note to self: assume the best, and read the fine print!)
Go Only Natural Pet! Go human ingenuity! I thank you, and the Earth thanks you.
Manifesting on Air
I will be a featured guest of Victor Venckus once again this Saturday (October 8) on the Expanding Awareness show from 10 - 11:00 a.m. Boston time. Tune in to 90.3 FM or online to listen. My esteemed teacher, Walter Ness--master of the energetic realm, gifted clairvoyant, performer and poet--and I will be sharing from our experience of working with the energy, and offering methods for immediate manifestation.
I hope you will join us--and maybe even chime in when Victor opens the phone lines in the latter half of the program. After Saturday, the show will be available via the wzbc archive for the next two weeks (until October 22). Once you enter the archive, simply scroll down to Saturday October 8th 2011, 10:00 a.m. Expanding Awareness, and click "Listen."
