A Prayer for the Gulf Of Mexico

June 20th, 2010

“I send the energy of love and gratitude to the waters and all living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings.

“To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, planktons, corals, algae, humankind … to ALL  living creatures …

“I am sorry.
“Please forgive me.
“Thank you.
“I love you.”

This is Dr. Masaru Emoto’s prayer for the Gulf of Mexico, forwarded by Mary Ellen AngelScribe.

Dr. Emoto has published extensive research on the characteristics of water. He has found that water physically responds to emotions.

As Mary Ellen points out, many of us are predominantly angry when we consider what is happening in the Gulf of Mexico as a result of BP’s massive oil spill.

While our emotion is justified, Mary Ellen suggests, and I agree, that we may be of greater assistance to our planet and all of its life if we collectively and humbly pray for healing.

Help set an intention of love and healing so large and so overwhelming that we can perform a miracle in the Gulf of Mexico.

We are not powerless.
We are powerful.

Our united energy, repeating his prayer daily…multiple times…can literally shift what is happening.

We don’t have to know how, Mary Ellen adds. Just recognize that the power of love is greater than any other power in the universe.

Help take charge … and do our own cleanup!

Amen, Mary Ellen!

Tech Enhanced Training Wheels for Teen Drivers

June 5th, 2010

Ford Motor Company has developed a special key that worried parents can program. When their teens use this key to drive certain models of Ford automobiles, the car cannot go faster than 80 miles an hour and it cannot play the stereo at more than half volume. The auto also will not turn on unless all passengers fasten their seat belts.

Think of it as technology-enhanced “training wheels” for teen drivers. Those aged 16 to 19 are four times more likely to crash than other drivers.

Who could argue with using technology to keep kids safe? Technology – especially so-called safety technology – has demonstrated unforeseen consequences, however.

“We have never gotten the full benefits of any safety technology ever invented because people have adjusted their behaviors due to these technologies,” says George E. Hoffer, professor of economics at Virginia Commonwealth University. He was speaking to me back in 2007 when I was writing a column for a syndicate that is now The North Star National.

Hoffer has spent four decades studying and writing about what’s called “offsetting behavior” resulting from automobile safety features such as seat belts and air bags. His research has found that when drivers know their cars have safety devices, they tend to behave less responsibly behind the wheel. In other words, safety technology encourages them to be less cautious.

Another term for offsetting behavior is free will. As souls created and endowed with unconditional freedom, we will always find ways around anyone or anything presuming or purporting to save us from ourselves.

Here’s the fly in this ointment. If this magic key keeps teens from learning to make their own judgment calls behind the wheel, what happens when they finally drive a car without the high-tech protections? Will safer driving have become their habit? Or will they be so conditioned to having big brother take care of them that they remain unprepared to assume full responsibility on the road?

We’ll find out in a few years.

The gender-power equation

February 20th, 2010

When comparing male power to female power, think of the former as action and the latter as attraction. Another way to look at it: doing versus being. The yang and the yin. The light and the dark. The electric and the magnetic.  The push and the pull. The broadcaster and the receiver.


The two forms of power complement each other, but this male-dominated world considers only the male/push/electric form as legitimate. Female/pull/receptive power is derided as seduction or temptation, when it really is the basis for the experiences and people we all attract into our lives. The law of attraction rests on female power, not male. Perhaps that is why it is so poorly understood.

In other words, to act, we use the electric energy of the mental-spiritual half of self. This is the side of self we are most familar with. To attract or receive, we use the magnetic energy of the emotional-physical parts of our being. One side of self cannot do or be without the other, yet we venerate and elevate the mental-spiritual (the masculine) at the expense of the emotional-physical (the feminine).

We also need to understand what we mean by energy here. The energy we speak of is the energy of consciousness — thoughts, feelings, beliefs — known as the aura in metaphysical terms. This consciousness-aura energy is called kura in the Green Stone of Healing® speculative epic. Whatever the name, this energy is the essence of who we are. Even our physical bodies are energy in a form that we are capable of perceiving with our physical eyes. Other names for this energy are chi or prana.

So where does romance fit into this gender-power equation? Interestingly, romance is where the two kinds of energies, masculine and feminine, collide and mingle. That’s what makes romance so compelling and essential, especially to women. During a romance, a woman finally elicits emotional (and sexual) attention from a man who otherwise would ignore his feelings about her or anyone else (himself included) to focus his energies on action, usually competition, in business, sports, or elsewhere.

Men absolutely hate it that they are not immune to women’s attracting/receptive power. This is one of the fascinating dynamics of romance. But they cannot escape this kind of power because they also possess it, although not to the degree that women do, unless the man is gay or bisexual.

Moralizing aside, one of the reasons a non-hetero sexual orientation is so threatening to straight men is the extra degree to which attracting/receptive feminine energy is present in the aura of non-hetero males. Lesbians and bisexual women also possess a greater extent of male/push energy than straight females. This is not as threatening to straight men because they are familiar with this kind of energy and regard it as superior anyway.

To be female in this world has long been associated with powerlessness. Nothing could be further from the truth. Attracting/receptive energy is extremely powerful, but can also be misused easily and degenerate into manipulation.

Throughout the generations, the Green Stone of Healing® saga explores how female power is the missing link for true healing at all levels of self and in the world. It also examines how women’s greatest challenge is to accept their own attracting/receptive nature as legitimate power and wield it forthrightly to sustain their personal autonomy, and improve their own lives and the lives of those they love.

Ground Hog Day debate

February 2nd, 2010

Call it a sign of our polarized times. Even the ground hogs disagree.

According to Reuters, the venerable Punxsutawney Phil predicted six more weeks of winter today when he saw his shadow after coming out of his burrow. Phil has been at this for more than a century, so he has lots of practice.

Upstart rival Staten Island Chuck, however, did not see his shadow, in which case spring is just around the corner.

Of course, the actual groundhogs in question didn’t say a word. That was up to their human handlers. Animals are smart enough to keep their opinions to themselves, while we humans beings tediously blog on and on…
