ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH
This is a two part message:
1.) At the end of each year, I feng-shui my email list… it’s the perfect time to release and bring in the new. If you wish to receive notice of my newsletters and events, please respond to this email no later than December 29th. Write on the subject line, ‘Keep on list” and put your name in the body section of the email because sometimes the emails don’t tell me who you are.
If I don’t hear from you by the 29th, you will be removed from the list. Also, know that my newsletters are on my website at: http://www.thetadnaactivation.com/newsletter.html
2.) My Annual Solstice Celebration. Come enjoy a day of festivities.
We will spend the day together in camaraderie with other ThetaHealers® of all levels in holiday celebration. There will be fun activities in preparation for the season including two door prizes.
The cost is $44 for this all day event with ½ the money going to Because International (Practical compassion-the shoes that grow for children) http://www.becauseinternational.org/#About and the other half is for the grant/scholarship fund. Through past attendance, many students have been supported in participating in ThetaHealing workshops who would not otherwise be able to attend. And now those happy children from around the world will be able to have growable shoes…thank you so much! Please RSVP by Tuesday, December 14th as space will be limited. If you RSVP and cannot make it, please let me know at least two days ahead of time.
What to Bring and the Schedule of Events
From 11 AM to 1:15, there will be exercises to prepare us for releasing what we’d like to let go of.
1. On a piece of paper, bring a list of what you’ve accomplished or achieved this year, which are positive experiences.
2. Have another list of what you’d like to accomplish or achieve in the coming year.
3. Then have a list of the fears or ‘stucks’ that come up in achieving such goals. We will do some belief work so things can move more smoothly into 2016.
4. I will also do Creator’s teachings to support us in moving into this year, letting go and bringing in the new.
5. Drumming will be experienced as we journey to meet and converse with a guide or with an Ascended Master as extra support in your life. (not that Creator-of-All isn’t enough, but friends from the 4th and 5th Plane are very powerful and so much want to participate in our lives).
From 1:15 to 2:15, there will be a delicious, organic, healthy potluck and a white elephant gift exchange
1. Please bring organic, non-GMO’d food, and wheatless (if possible) as we have those who are gluten-sensitive.
2. A white elephant gift exchange means letting go of something that you have around the house which you really don’t need or want, and you feel someone else would enjoy or appreciate it. It’s another symbolic gesture to let go of the old so the new can come in. Be mindful in your selection—make sure it isn’t toxic nor has toxic ingredients in it, and that it is non-gender specific. Please clear off the ghost imprint (energy) and charge it with a job (purpose).
From 2:15 to 4, more exercises and group and remote healings.
1. We’ll create a list of what we wish to release and how it served us or what it taught us in a group sharing. This is very intimate as we pass the talking stick around.
2. This will be followed by a manifestation exercise for the coming New Year so be clear of what you want to manifest. You can put as much as you want on the list but be aware you might get what you ask for so clarity is important
3. Also bring in names of people who want healings. We will do a group remote healing that will include us as well.
Holidays are sometimes difficult for people and I welcome all students of ThetaHealing®. This is a very fun opportunity to gather with others in a safe and sacred space, to share ourselves, celebrate solstice, and have support as the New Year rolls in.

BLOG FOR THE SOUL
Quote of the month:
Do you know what triangulation is? I’m not writing about what geologists use to determine finding an earthquake by using the location of two other things as indicators, or how spacecrafts can be located similarly.
Earthquakes do divide though. But what I’m referring to is interpersonal triangulations. Perhaps because it’s getting close to the holidays, there’s an energy of the father, son and holy ghost triangle in the air, but my ‘holy ghost’ is more of exclamation of my reaction about two situations where other people attempted to tell me things that really had no place for them to be involved…like “Holy Ghost! This happened twice in one month.” It definitely had my attention. I needed to step into defining what was actually occurring, separate the messenger from the message, use language that ‘wondered’ about the motives of others while stating my boundaries, requesting what I wanted differently in the future, and still, hopefully, maintain a relationship. I decided to trust that I would be heard and the issues would be resolved.
Triangulations have a strategy, mostly unconscious, where there is an attempt over those who might appear as rivals or competitors (could be in a family, friendships, neighbors, business etc) to manipulate them into conflict (set-ups); and sometimes it’s about getting two people who might have been rivals to ‘like’ each other by means of manipulation, interference, and not what the other two are even interested in having occur. I’m not talking about matchmaking. The later example isn’t as common in being defined as triangulation, but it certainly felt that way. Lucky me…I needed to deal with both ways.
One attempted triangulation occurred through a dear friend who ran into my former spouse and decided, out-of–the-blue, to tell him that I had implied to her that he was being an attentive and caring grandparent. She then told me that he was surprised…as was I… since this dialogue never happened. I don’t really discuss him or the ways he might act in the role of grandparenting with anyone. I was glad she was honest in telling me, but I don’t think she expected me not to appreciate her attempt to bring a warm, fuzzy feeling between us. I’m fine in the way I feel and don’t care what his feelings might be…for me, it’s a recognition that what I learned with him is complete. I don’t need anyone to attempt to alter or enhance that.
I knew that there was something that must be going on for her to attempt to create this triangulation. When I wrote her asking about her motives, telling her how I felt and that I supported her in keeping things focused on what is true for her in running into extensions of my family or friends (how she feels without including me), she totally took responsibility for her part. She appreciated that I didn’t blame her and allowed her to explain herself. I so appreciated her emotional vulnerability and personal accountability. The issue was resolved and trust was restored.
The other triangulation was a neighbor who asked me if I was open to some unsolicited advice…a big red flag from the start, but I allowed it. Lesson learned…it won’t happen again. I honestly thought it was about my fence slanting slightly onto his property from a tree that had grown towards his yard, which I had to cut down. But no, this would have been easily rectified. He wanted, instead, to tell me that it would “behoove me to be a better neighbor” towards another neighbor. I honestly didn’t know what he was talking about. He made the comment and just stared at me as if he was waiting for me to admit something that was clear to him in what I did or did not do, and then what was expected of me to rectify this. The pause was disconcerting.
We both knew that I basically stayed clear of this other neighbor as he has presented himself in ways which I would recognize as ageist, misogynist, provoking, alpha, and demeaning, not someone who I’d want to be around more than 2 minutes, but I’ve always been respectful and polite.
In literally being the owner of my street, I had a responsibility to maintain the road. Of the four neighbors, two used the road but paid no maintenance. Three months prior, I hired a professional tree company to trim back three of the palms trees along the lane leaving one, which I felt was on the that neighbor’s property, for him to deal with. I had also asked that other neighbor to remove the oil from the asphalt from one of his trucks leaking. He disagreed that it was from his trucks though it was parked next to his house on my road. That was the end of that story…so I thought.
Somehow the neighbor with the unsolicited advice must have had a discussion with that other. Instead of supporting that man to discuss things with me, he took it upon himself to triangulate the situation, choosing to get in the middle of something where he had not been present, didn't know what was really going on and taking on the perceptions of the other neighbor as truth.
I emailed him the next day as I felt unsettled. I apologized for listening to unsolicited advice as I set myself up for what then happened. I wondered why he decided to take his position in deciding to talk to me as the middleman and then warning me to be a better neighbor as if there was eminent threat to my well being. We had always gotten along. And his wife also felt the same way about the neighbor’s response to women. I knew he was aware of this, because he was the one who had told me this many months ago.
I wondered if he understood the triangulation dynamics that occurred and that there were other ways to resolve this by supporting the other neighbor to come forth. I let him know that I appreciated him and his wife as neighbors, the exchange of garden produce, and his generosity and assistance in helping me as a relatively new neighbor.
Two days later, he called to apologize and when I asked if he understood the dynamics, he said that he ‘shouldn’t have told me.’ Hmmm. ‘Shouldn’t’…as if he was under obligation.
I appreciated the acknowledgment and apology very much, but I don’t think he understood what had really occurred. In hearing his comments, I realized that he cared enough to make the connection and that his level of awareness around the dynamics was that he might continue to listen to the other neighbor without supporting him to settle his disagreements personally with others. It showed me that we are at different places in life, and there still might be a continuation of talk behind my back. As long as there is just talk, then I’m fine with that because the level of relationship doesn’t need to require emotional intimacy, or a great level of trust. I got that it wasn’t possible for these people. People can only be where they are in their unconscious state.
It was the tone of the initial comment as some kind of warning or threat that needed to be addressed. I may not get my lane’s leaves blown any longer from that other neighbor, which seemed to be his ‘big’ contribution to the road maintenance, but that is fine too since Mother Nature takes care of those things with her wind and composting. What was important was that the ‘divide and conquer’ was spoken to, I stayed with and trusted my awareness, acted from there, and stayed in my power. I feel this is possible for all of us in dealing with triangulations and deciding what level of relationships work for us.
And in the power of December, wishing all of you a very wonderful holiday season and Happy New Years! I hope to see some of you at the Annual Solstice gathering.

Bone Broth: Heal your Gut and Lose Cellulite (can use turkey bones)
Bones, marrow, skin, tendons, ligaments, and the cartilage that sometimes accompanies a bone are all made of a protein molecule called collagen. Collagen contains two very special amino acids: proline and glycine. Collagen has been found to help heal the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the stomach and the intestines. This means that heartburn or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) and many of the conditions associated with intestinal inflammation can be helped with bone broth. Drinking bone broth makes skin supple as well. Recipe at site.
Mindfulness fixes the brain while boosting your performance
Mindfulness meditation is the rare, research-proven technique that boosts your performance by physically altering your brain. While the researchers found significant changes in eight brain regions, there are two regions that are of particular importance to you--The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), which is responsible for self-control, and the hippocampus, which, among other things, is responsible for resilience in the face of setbacks and challenges.
Mindful Meditation Reduces Pain More Effectively than Placebo Treatments
Scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have found new evidence that mindfulness meditation reduces pain more effectively than placebo. This is significant because placebo-controlled trials are the recognized standard for demonstrating the efficacy of clinical and pharmacological treatments. Mindfulness meditation reduced pain by activating brain regions (orbitofrontal and anterior cingulate cortex) associated with the self-control of pain while the placebo cream lowered pain by reducing brain activity in pain-processing areas (secondary somatosensory cortex). Another brain region, the thalamus, was deactivated during mindfulness meditation, but was activated during all other conditions. This brain region serves as a gateway that determines if sensory information is allowed to reach higher brain centers. By deactivating this area, mindfulness meditation may have caused signals about pain to simply fade away.
Science just discovered something amazing about what childhood piano lessons do
One of the largest scientific studies into music's effect on the brain has found something striking: that musical training doesn't just affect your musical ability, it provides tremendous benefits to children's emotional and behavioral maturation. The more a child is trained on an instrument, there is increased thickness in parts of the brain responsible for executive functioning, which includes working memory, attention and emotional control, anxiety management, and organizational skills. Musical training could serve as a powerful treatment of cognitive disorders like ADHD.
Batteries made from portabello mushroom
Instead of the graphite that currently forms the batteries inside our mobile phones, researchers in the US have created a new type of lithium-ion battery that uses portabella mushrooms. The mushroom batteries are also incredibly cheap, easy to make, and, best of all, they're pretty much biodegradable.
