The Message from Water: Emoto Peace Project

Standard

This is just amazing and I had to tell you all!

The Emoto Peace Project is an organization that wants to bring peace, through books to children.  But they are not ordinary books!  They show the impact various things have on water crystals… such as music, words, thoughts, etc… and how it changes them from beautiful, to downright ugly, depending on what is said or listened to.  The kicker is this… it’s not just for the water in the rivers and oceans.  Our bodies are 70% water – children when born are 90%!  That is an awful lot of water that gets affected.  If water in the rivers is affected by these things… it logically follows that we are affected too, in ways we are not even aware of.  The book is aimed for children… probably because so many stick-in-the-mud adults just couldn’t (or wouldn’t) grasp it… LOL!  The message would  likely fail, left in our hands, at least for many of us.  But the kids are the future, so this makes sense.  It will stick with them.  I applaud the work of the Emoto Peace Project.

If you’d like to check out the book for yourself, you can view or download it here:  http://www.emotoproject.org/english/picturebook.html I viewed it and was just astounded… then I showed it to my daughter.  I think he is on to something here and I encourage you to give it a look.

The following message is from his site at http://www.emotoproject.org/english/home.html :

“The research of Dr. Masaru Emoto captures frozen water crystals in photographs that present a glimpse into the mysterious response of water to thoughts, words and pictures. As part of the United Nation’s International Decade for Action: Water for Life, Dr. Emoto wishes to share his discoveries about the responsive nature of water with children around the world. Beginning in 2006, “The Message of Water” children’s book , will be provided to all the children in the world at no cost within the decade. This effort is called the “Emoto Peace Project.”

Dr. Emoto and many of his readers believe that water holds the potential to create peace on earth. Dr. Emoto and many of his readers believe by holding the intention of peace towards water — by thinking, speaking and acting with the intention of peace toward water — water can and will bring peace to our bodies and to the world.

The Emoto Peace Project presents “The Message from Water” children’s book in hopes that this book will play a leading roll in bring peace to the world.

One man cannot change the world but one man can deliver the message to change the world. We believe it is “The Message from Water”.

We thank you very much for your support to Emoto Peace Project.”

Schapelle Corby dying in Bali jail – help bring her home.

Standard

Schapelle Corby dying in Indonesian jail

You may or may not have heard the story of Schapelle. She went to Bali on a vacation with two of her friends. When she got there, the authorities of Indonesia found 4.1 kg of marijuana in her bags… even though a Brisbane airport senior security officer says there is no way she could have smuggled it in from her departure point in Australia without that amount of drugs being detected through all the security checks.

This leaves the very ugly possibility that someone in Indonesia planted this upon her arrival. The court trial she was given was a kangaroo court for show only in the opinion of many.

1) There was NO DNA testing for her fingerprints on the drugs…
2) NO testing of the marijuana to find out what country it came from…
3) NO weighing of baggage to compare before and after weights. Any of this would have acquitted her but NOTHING WAS DONE. And not only this…
4) they BURNED THE EVIDENCE.

To a normal person, this smacks of injustice, politics and hidden affairs. She is paying the price of something bigger going on. She has asked them repeatedly to check the evidence! What criminal does that? Yet no one shows her fairness and her government does nothing.

Now she is dying in a terrible, tiny Indonesian jail cell and tries to kill herself constantly. She has been sentenced to 20 years in this place where toilets back up continually into her cell and not cleaned… full of rats, etc… and her mental stability has begun to detoriorate from that of a normal woman. She has tried to kill herself repeatedly. She has already served 6 years here… we must do everything we can to at least get her brought to her home country of Australia. We cannot idly stand by, doing nothing.

For more information, go here: http://www.freeschapelle.com.au/
There are several videos that show the story much better than I can tell it, as well as letters you can print and send, and a petition you can sign.

I keep thinking… what if this were me? Or someone I loved? What if all you did was go on a vacation holiday… and found yourself in a situation like this? Apparently it could happen to anyone. We must stand up for her and anyone in the future this might happen to! We must send the message that we are all of the same human family no matter who our relatives are or where we live… we will not tolerate this treatment of others.

Please blog it… twitter it… myspace and facebook it… anything we can do to make more people aware. She has been in there six years and last week was the first I had ever heard of it. Thank you for anything you can do to help get the word out.

In Honor of Moms

Standard

For all you moms who feel like life is passing you by… you wake up one morning and say “Gosh… am I __ (fill in the year) already?  What have I got to show for my life?”  … the following poem is for you.  I lost my mom earlier this year, I wish so much that I could tell her one more time how much I love her… how much I appreciated all she did for me, taught me, blessed me with.  But I have to trust that somehow she knows already.  This is the first Mother’s Day without her… I miss her so much.  I too am a mom… and I would not trade this wonderful, humbling, joyous task for anything.  Not for all the money in the world, not for all the wisdom in the universe.  My child is a gift that God has entrusted to me… a little soul… a precious life… that somehow, God felt, I was capable of caring for, nurturing, growing, and loving.  I do not take that position lightly.  It is my service to her, and my heavenly Father… it is my mission.  And… I am grateful for it.  For her.  My little 9 year old girl that turned my world upside down and topsy turvy in the most wonderful and happy ways. :)  Her smile lights up my soul like the sun itself.

For those of you who are moms…  for those of you that are blessed and fortunate enough to still have your moms with you… don’t waste a moment.  Hug your kids… tell them how much they brighten your day, your life.  They need to hear that.

Tell your mom how much she has given you… thank her for all the times she didn’t let you do what you wanted. ;)  Even if you had, or have, a rocky relationship with her… you’re alive, and she is the reason for that.  Thank her, and even if you have to be the first to initiate it… make amends.  Live each day to the fullest and happiest that you can.

I did not write the following poem.  It is written by Roy Lessin, a very gifted and talented, Godly writer.  I hope that it blesses you, and please share it with the ladies in your life this Mother’s Day…and every day.

God bless… have a wonderful Mother’s day.  Love, Amy

A woman once fretted over the usefulness of her life.

She feared she was wasting her potential being a devoted wife and

mother. She wondered if the time and energy she invested

in her husband and children would make a difference.


At times, she got discouraged because so much of what she did


seemed to go unnoticed and unappreciated.



“Is it worth it?” she often wondered.


“Is there something better that I could be doing with my time?”



It was during one of these moments of questioning that she heard

the still small voice of her heavenly Father speak to her heart.


“You are a wife and mother because

that is what I have called you to be.


Much of what you do is hidden from the public eye.

But I notice.


Most of what you give is done without remuneration.

But I am your reward.


Your husband cannot be the man

I have called him to be without your support.

Your influence upon him is greater than you think

and more powerful than you will ever know.

I bless him through your service and honor him through your love.


Your children are precious to Me.

Even more precious than they are to you.

I have entrusted them to your care to raise them for Me.

What you invest in them is an offering to Me.


You may never be in the public spotlight.

But your obedience shines as a bright light before Me.


Continue On.

Remember you are My servant.


Do all to please Me.”

Happy Saturday everybody :)

Standard

Hi all & Happy Saturday.

I don’t have any real updates today about the H1N1 slash swine flu sitch.  Things seem pretty much the same.  I have *heard* that the WHO is considering a level 6… I hope not because a Level 6 pandemic means some other problems too that come with that… other than that, though, things are about where they were.  Mild cases are continuing to pop up… Mexico says the deaths seem to be levelling off, that’s a good thing… and you may have heard or read my post about the actual number of *confirmed* cases of Mexican deaths from the swine flu being much different than the numbers we were originally given.  If not, my post is below where you can read it.  To quickly get a summary of swine flu posts, go to the “Categories” section on the right and click on Current Events: Swine Flu Updates… it will take you to a page where all the SF items are neatly arranged in order for you to read.

I’ve mentioned a couple different sides of the story – I really don’t know what to think.  So far no deaths have occurred outside Mexico, except for the toddler who *came* from Mexico into the US and who was already sick.  It came out he had underlying health problems even before this  happened.  I am so sorry for the Mexican people dealing with this, my heart goes out to them. I am grateful that so far no other deaths have occurred, that we know of.  For updates, please see my below posts on links to the RSOE site, also don’t forget that you can contact the local public health dept for your state.

For our part, I have just been making sure my family has lots of Vitamin C (I am a firm believer in that) and of course continuing to practice good cleanliness.

We have gotten the RAIN the past few days!!!  It rained so much last night and today, I thought for sure I was going to see Noah go sailing by and waving, with a giraffe sticking his head out of a little ark window! hahaha  :P  Seriously, it didn’t just rain, it POURED and STORMED and thundered and lightning.  Which, I kinda like the storms a little bit, I love the sound of the rain and some thunder. I know, that’s probably weird.  But I don’t like seeing small rivers on the road and at the foot of my steps! :P

OH… for those of you like me, practicing a GF (gluten free) diet… found something out that I want to pass along.  The GF thing is still new to me so I definitely appreciate any little tidbit I can get.  I found out that gluten takes its own sweet time leaving the body – could be as much as 6 to 9 months. If you’ve already been gluten free for a little while and then you get “glutened” it can take about 3 weeks (my goodness!!!) to leave your body.   This was interesting to me because I think I got glutened last weekend at a Thai restaurant.  The food was great, don’t get me wrong, but hubby is a photographer and he was doing some pictures for their advertising.  They kindly served us the food that they made for the shoot.

Of course, I was very wary of whatever I might/might not be able to eat, but they were so nice and I didn’t want to hurt their feelings.  So, I settled on something that I thought (hoped) would be okay, it was made with rice noodles and the broth was just heavenly.  LOL a little too heavenly.  I had mentioned to them I had a wheat allergy (gluten intolerant) and they seemed to think I just didn’t want to eat their food… that made me feel bad… I didn’t want them to feel that way.  So anyway… I had a rice noodle soup… but I noticed their soy sauce has GUESS WHAT wheat in it (Kikkoman’s) and I think there must have been some (probably definitely) in the soup.  I felt *terrible* later on.  I have been feeling so great lately that I could tell right away something was wrong. Amazing how when you get healthier, and start feeling good… you recognize immediately when things are not right.

The next morning, my skin was bloated, and my poor puffy eyes… I had the same old headaches like I used to get which lasted a couple days… I still don’t feel 100% yet, but I am better.  Next time, even at the risk of hurting someone’s feelings (which I try hard not to do)… but I will not eat something that my instinct tells me to stay away from.  And if you are gluten free, or a celiac, I offer the same advice to you.

People don’t truly understand when you tell them.  I tried to tell my husband and he kind of “pooh-poohed” it saying it was “all in my head” (OH I hate when he does that! haha) but he just didn’t understand, he’s never dealt with anything like that.  I’ve tried to share what I’ve learned with him and for the most part he has been supportive in helping me find GF foods, which I appreciate, but sometimes he acts like it’s just me.  And that is really hurtful.  Anybody GF out there run into the same thing with their family members? :rolls eyes: haha

Well, here’s hoping it will be a great Saturday for all of you… stay well, take lots of Vita C, and try not to worry about all this flu too much.  There’s not really much we can do, except use wisdom and caution. Blessings and light to each of you :)
