My show last Saturday, September 29th, 2012, had four Guests whom I consider to be Messengers of Truth in a world of misinformation, propaganda, and constant jingles, riddles, and flashing time stealers.
Steve McIntosh, Author of “Evolution’s Purporse: An Integral Interpretation of the Scientific Story of Our Origins,” made several incredible points in our interview.
First, the “Big Bang” theory is not a theory. It is a fact. However, the difference with the factual beginnings of the Universe is that it is compatible with Spirituality. There was an Entity [God] before the Universe came into being.
Life and the universe are not purposeless accidents, as the original ‘scientific’ theory hypothesized.
Secondly, the Environmental movement must evolve in order to achieve its goals.
Steve says that as global warming increases, Environmentalists need to recognize how anti-establishment stridency is discouraging to the mainstream whose support they need to be effective in combating the proximate causes of climate change.
The solution to bringing this Environmental movement into the “mainstream” for immediate, full-scale community [and corporate] action requires a cultural shift that better integrates the Environmental movement with everyday society, and thereby creating greater solidarity within American [and world] culture overall.
I would like to add that I do see this happening as more people start to understand the direct correlation between their consumer and daily choices and the ecological damage that occurs as a result of these choices. I have seen an evolution in the past few years that is exciting to be a part of [albeit it very slow in some parts of the USA].
Third, Economic dominance is not the only way to provide global leadership.
Steve McIntosh encourages Americans to embrace their country’s changing responsibilities.
America’s role in the world is inevitably changing as the globalized economy increasingly empowers other countries, such as China, India and the Middle East.
As our world changes, Americans can prevent the decline of America’s global leadership by evolving their definition of leadership, and thereby evolving their culture into the next stage of historical development.
Through this cultural evolution America can demonstrate a successful form of sustainability, post-material society that provides deeper forms of fulfillment than the rewards offered by consumerism and status.
Fourth, Can artificial intelligence ever truly replicate the human self, resulting in self-conscious machines? “Trans-humanists” subscribe to the theory that self-replicating computers will soon undertake their own evolution, but Steve McIntosh explains how this premise disregards the nature of the self and what it means to be conscious.
Many of Steve’s points are incredibly rich in complexity, and really requires all of us to start thinking. This book stretched me intellectually. This is a “must read” for every person who seeks knowledge and personal empowerment.
Check out Steve’s web site for more: www.stevemcintosh.com
I have talked on several shows about the horrifying, diabolical dangers of Pesticides.
ALL chemical pesticides are chemical warfare weapons that are re-packaged as “home use” pesticides. Don’t be fooled when it comes to the misleading, even fraudulent marketing and advertising when it comes to the supposed safety of chemicals used for pesticides. All of these DNA damaging substances came directly out of Nazi Germany. They are, indeed, chemical biological weapons, and they do hurt people, animals, plants, groundwater, food sources, and all life.
My Guest for this segment, Josh Vincent of the Northwest Center for Alternative to Pesticides, explained the many autoimmune disorders that are directly related to exposure to chemical pesticides that are sprayed routinely around residential homes, in our food agriculture, in our skies [for the misguided and downright stupid "West Nile" spraying], and in gardening.
The pathetic apathy that has overcome our elected officials, and then literally blanketed the consciousness of the Taxpayer is certainly something to be alarmed about. We need to stand up to these powerful Chemical lobbies that don’t care about your future, your health, your food quality, your children’s health, or your pets.
And by the way, those supposed “flea and tick” toxic chemicals that get put into the shoulder blades of our animals are ALSO deadly killers. DO NOT USE THEM! Instead, put Garlic powder into your pets food along with Grapefruit Seed Extract into their water, and just give them a nice shampoo with non-toxic, essential oil shampoos that are now readily available to keep your pets flea free.
When you can trace the DDT exposure all the way to the North Pole, and into the blubber of marine mammals and Polar Bears… you know that these chemicals are persistent and do not ‘fade’ over time. They simply travel throughout the eco-system causing damage to everything they contaminate.
We cannot afford to fall asleep on this issue. This is a big, big issue to overcome and to combat since the Chemical companies are relying on both the ignorance and trust of society to get away with murder, literally.
Check out this informative website and please take action for yourself and for your community: www.pesticide.org
Hemp is a highly nutritious “Superfood” with all Essential Fatty Acids [3,6,9] and protein that can literally feed the world because it is both easy and ecologically friendly to grow. It needs very little water, and actually remineralizes the ground soil as it grows in a process called “phytomerediation.”
Hemp can be used for housing, fuel [replacing petrochemicals], replace nylon, clothing, medicine, PAPER, replaces toxic chemical plastics, food, beauty treatments, making automobiles, airplanes, boats, agricultural feed, natural antiseptics, natural pest control …. and the list goes on endlessly.
So, why would the United States turn their backs on this opportunity to help re-charge both the Environment AND the Economy in one shot by re-establishing a PRO-Hemp agenda?
Why is it currently illegal to grow or cultivate Hemp in the United States? Why are we, as Americans, sending our money to China, India, Canada, Pakistan and other countries in order to IMPORT Hemp seeds, Hemp oil products, Hemp clothing, etc?
The Forestry and Cotton industries are behind the demise of this amazing crop from the United States. They were intimidated and obviously concerned enough to lobby Congress to prohibit Hemp because it was the same family as “marijuana.”
However, Hemp is not a hallucinogenic plant and cannot be smoked for the mind-altering affects that Marijuana offers. Although Hemp is from the Cannabis species, its THC content is negligible and cannot be used for ‘getting high’ as Opponents of Hemp argue in order to keep their special interests as the tax-guzzling crops in America’s farmlands.
The positive attributes of Hemp also include cleaning the air, preventing soil erosion since its roots grow deep, and one acre of Hemp plants produces more agricultural products than 2 acres of Cotton or 4 acres of trees! Hemp trees/plants also clean the air as they release a ton of Oxygen into the air as they grow heartily and quickly in just about any climate.
Thanks to Eric ‘the red’ Hughes of Chi Hemp Industries for his magnificent research over the past few decades, and for your voice in this very important matter for the Ecology and for the future of the Earth.
Check out www.hempoil.ca and get some yummy Hemp products and educate yourself. Let’s take back our future by restoring common sense to both our politics and to the taxpayer/consumer.
Entire families are broken apart… babies are run over cliffs or run to exhaustion and die… mothers are separated from their babies and the cries are unthinkable and heart wrenching… the Stallions are abused and castrated with crude means… the ones that are ‘too wild’ are shot dead…. and too many other wretched and totally un-American abuse of our National Heritage.
The story of our Wild Horses and the ILLEGAL Round-ups overseen by Ken Salazar of the much-corrupted Department of Interior and the ‘subsidiary’ Bureau of Land Management [BLM] has increased, surprisingly, under the Obama Administration. Sadly, it is just one more lie that our current President made when he was campaigning in 2008 and appealing to many Environmentalists like me.
When he appointed Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Department of the Interior, I had a foreboding feeling that nothing good was going to come from this very unhealthy appointment to the Cabinet to the President. This was four years ago, and it got worse with every year in terms of our Environment and our Wildlife.
And, indeed, my sense in 2008 was right. Under Mr. Salazar, we have these illegal Round-ups that kill, disable, and terrorize innocent animals, and then we saw the worst oil tragedy in the history of the world take place in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Thugs that declare a war of Terror are doing it at the bequest of the Oil and Cattle industries.
This is exactly WHY you, as a Consumer, should NEVER buy any beef from just any store under just any name [or McDonald's or any other fast food chain-- the food is NOT REALLY CHEAP! IT HAS A COST UNIMAGINABLE TO YOU, THE TAXPAYER]… you should ONLY buy Local, Organic, Humane, Sustainable, Grass Fed, and small farmed. Every time you ignore your power as a Consumer to create the change you really wish to see in this world, you are denying innocent living beings like our Wild Horses and our Wolves and all other Wildlife the right to live freely… simply because you are inadvertently supporting blood-industries like the big Agribusinesses that lobby Congress to have their way on OUR public, taxpayer lands!
Better yet, go Vegetarian. You’ll be Alkalinizing your body, and naturally healing your body. You’ll also be supporting the Environment in the right way by your lifestyle choices. Remember, all animal products create an ACIDIC body, which is the breeding ground for disease.
The point to my conversation with Suzanne Roy of the American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign was to both raise awareness to the Consumer and to hopefully inspire people to take Action for our beautiful remaining Wildlife, and for the ecological balance of our last remaining open spaces.
Please take a look at this amazing web site and give your support to save our Wild Horses and Burros from the horrors of Slaughter. They need us.
Thanks for listening. This was an incredible show, and is available in the “Archives” section of this blog.
Where are our pollinating bees going? What is causing the die-offs?
The answer is simple and the resolution should be just as simple, but the Politics that encumber the resolutions to being enacted are unbelievably complex.
On Conscious Lifestyles on September 15, 2012, my first Guest for the day was Bee Keeper and Educator Raymond DuBois.
He told my audience about the necessity of Integrated Crop Management and how maintaining a respectful balance of the indigenous environment will bring higher, more healthy yields of food crops…. and protect the NATIVE Bees to the geographical area.
However, this is the OPPOSITE of what our American Taxes are supporting! The Bee die-offs are a result of a poor understanding of how to properly produce food without Chemical Pesticides, Chemical/petroleum based Fertilizers, and the horrendous “clear cutting” and bulldozing of the natural, indigenous environment of the agribusiness practice of “Mono Crop” production.
This practice of removing and thereby destroying the entire environment to have thousands of acres of ONE crop [such as Corn, Soy, etc.] is destroying the native Bee populations.
Add onto this diabolical practice the usage of pesticides and fertilizers that KILL our natural Bees and other pollinators, and you have massive die-offs and a critical tipping point in our Environment that is now threatening food crops and our future.
Why would the EPA ignore this obvious raping of our Eco-system? Are they NOT “The ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY?” The obvious question is Why they are not living up to the title of their very own name. Politics, pay-offs, and Lobbying by large Agribusinesses and Chemical Fertilizer/Chemical Warfare companies is a huge percentage of the answer.
This is certainly no time to be a passive tax payer. Apathy is something that the very Chemical Fertilizers and Pesticides CAUSE in the human brain, by the way! These very dangerous Chemicals kill brain cells, and cause immune dysfunction and endocrine/hormone harm.
The urgent need for the Consumer to take back the quality of food cannot be over-emphasized.
Write, email, call and be a voice to your local, elected Politicians to outright DEMAND that our taxes be funneled into Organic, Sustainable, Integrated Crop Production that respects both the Environment and our much-needed Pollinators!
Without our Bees, we have no future. No kidding here. It really is time for Action.
Check out Raymond DuBois’s Web Site www.beelove.org
Support your LOCAL, Organic, SMALL and Humane Farms. You can internet search for your local Community Supported Agriculture organizations. There are many that will deliver to your town, and even to your front door weekly! Stop supporting ALL large-scale food manufacturers and put your efforts into healing your body with natural, sustainably grown and harvested food. Food can be your medicine, and it is the only thing that can truly heal your body.
The second half of my show broadcast on Saturday, September 15th explored more detail on the horrifying topic of Vaccines in general, but the “Gardasil” vaccine that is now marketed for BOTH girls and boys ages 9-26.
The carnage this toxic vaccine has left behind is nothing short of Genocide of our next generation. The over-vaccinating of our children with extremely toxic [never proven "safe"] witches brew of Formaldehyde, Aluminum, Mercury, unknown live viruses, other dangerous adjuvants like Squalane…. is it any wonder we have ADHD, Autism, Learning disabilities and behavior issues of ALL kinds, and an array of Autoimmune dis-eases?
I highly suggest that all of my blog readers and radio audience around the world take the steps to educate themselves, and ultimately ARM themselves against the falsified, fraudulent messages that are both subliminally and overtly sent to the Consumer daily.
The buzz of FEAR tactics that are expertly utilized to gain a firm CONTROL over your behavior that makes you a PASSIVE Consumer [sucker] for these wretched vaccines is part of the Propaganda that is part of the big-Pharmaceutical/Government collusion to keep you sick, and in need of more drugs, therapy, other toxic treatments, etc.
Check out Leslie Carol Botha’s website at HolyHormones.com and learn, each day, something new about your body, and how intricately balanced it is and certainly deserves to be treated with natural, healing respect.
Tags: A Conversation With Green Building Expert David Johnston, Green Building, Sustainable Home Building Practices
The Insulated Concrete Forms [ICF] and Structural Insulated Panels [SIP] and Straw Bale building materials are strong, forever-lasting, sustainable methods of building that creates healthier homes that are better insulated, sound-proof, and eco-friendly to live in.
Why has America been so slow in adopting these incredibly fast, easy forms of building?
Our old growth forests are disappearing. “Stick frame” building is a post-war “cheapie” style of building that is totally unsustainable. Douglas Fir Forests are being destroyed for this heinous building method that really needs to be outlawed in order to re-direct our building methods to ones that are both more durable and sustainable.
The indiscriminate clear-cutting of short-sighted and greedy lumber companies along with the foolish behavior of our bribed Elected Officials has put our air quality, and the future of all life on the brink.
Did you know that these egregious Lumber companies have lobbied Congress to have YOUR Federal Land “clear cut” for their own profits? Did you also know that these Lumber companies are allowed to walk into the Forest with Guns and ammunition and kill off any wildlife that happen to be grazing or living their lives in the very Forest that your tax dollars are supposed to be protecting?
Clear cutting kills birds, deer, wolves, baby animals of all kinds, and it kills our air quality. The forests are our “Lungs” of the Earth, and we cannot have Oxygen without them.
Wood is not something that should be creating the shell of a home. We need to be using better materials that don’t mold, catch fire, or create havoc on the Earth’s last remaining Forests.
ICF’s and SIP’s are the answer. They are faster to build and the incredible beauty of a Green Built home is unmistakable. The FEELING you get when you are inside a Green built home is also unmistakable. You feel at peace, happy, and you can breathe without taking in fumes from off gassing toxic materials used in most homes by uninspired and uneducated contractors.
My Guest on this weeks show for August 18, 2012 was Author and Educator David Johnston. He is one of America’s top Green Building experts and has written four books that are easy to read and a delight to learn from. Green living is both fun and easy once you know where to get the information you need to create a sustainable, beautiful home and community.
You can also get all of the manufacturers of Green Products [literally from "A" to "Z"] from a think tank called “Building Green” based in Vermont. They publish online Guide called the “Green Spec” Directory, and this is a MUST HAVE Guide on where to buy Green Building Products, pricing, etc. Check them out and join them at www.buildinggreen.com
David made many great points in our conversation this week on HOW to Green Build, and certainly on how to locate and hire an honorable, knowledgeable and competent Green Contractor.
Don’t waste your time with people who are not educated on Sustainable living or building methods. This will only lead to an uphill climb for you, the homeowner, and your dollars are best spent with the good people who have the foresight and motivation to build cleaner, sustainable, healthier homes for their communities.
Children are highly susceptible to off-gassing of toxins. Pregnant women are, too. The elderly, and anyone who is under stress or immune compromised. People who think they are healthy can be struck with an auto-immune disease that seems to come from “nowhere” after being exposed daily to toxic building materials. Allergies, to ADD/ADHD, to learning difficulties, to fatigue and the numerous other modern dis-eases that way too many people suffer from are all able to be traced back to toxins INSIDE the home [and not to mention the ones you cannot control the minute you step outside.]
Natural Clay Plaster walls are brilliant. They come in all kinds of colors, and will release “Negative Ions” into the air, creating a healthier indoor environment. Negative Ions are cleansing and very healing to the body. It is exactly what is released in a Thunder Storm and Rain Storm. It feels good to just be around when you are in a home that has used natural paints, clay plaster, milk paint, clay paints, and natural glues/adhesives.
There really is no excuse for not seeking out such amazing ways of cleaning up the environment.
Starting at home is what I have preached on my show for quite some time. When you start to clean up your home by the consumer choices you make, you will be motivated and even passionate about cleaning up the Environment in which you live.

Tags: Conscious Lifestyles Radio Interviews
My interview with Attorney Bruce Wagman broadcast on April 28th, 2012 and again on May 5th, 2012 after many outraged listeners asked for a SECOND broadcasting of this important show.
Here are just a few organizations to check out immediately [if you care about tax dollar waste/abuse/reckless laundering]:
Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary:One Great Rescue Organization With Accurate Information For The Taxpayer
The Cloud Foundation: Support Our Wild Horses And RESTORE OUR NATIONAL HERITAGE ON TAXPAYER LAND!
Wild Horse Freedom Federation: Another Great Organization
Front Range Equine Rescue: Save Our Horses and LEARN About the COVERT abuse of YOUR TAX DOLLARS!
The Bureau of Land Management [BLM], under the direction of a bloodthirsty and corrupted Cattle Rancher named “Bob Abbey” has revved up its taxpayer wasting programs to illegally round-up and kill our beautiful American Wild Horses and Burros.
This abomination and abuse of perceived power on their part is one of the most wretched “programs” that overtly wastes hard-earned taxpayer money.
These round-ups are illegal and were declared illegal by an act of Congress in 1971. What the heck is going on?
Well, when you appoint people like Ken Salazar, another oil/cattleman, to high places like The Secretary of The Department of Interior… You get more bad people like Bob Abbey and his dubious third-party “contractors” who have long histories of abuse on their public record… Add all of these elements together with an incompetent President who thinks nothing of throwing money at bad “programs” regardless of its disastrous consequences… and you have the recipe for Fraud and OVERT abuse.
My conversation with Attorney Bruce Wagman, Partner with Schiff Hardin in San Francisco, struck a chord with me and with thousands of people who heard the broadcast.
Many people are aware of Obama’s abuse of our tax dollars, ridiculous big-government programs, and Czar-appointed behavior, but they had NO IDEA that Obama was THIS BAD!
A joke, a song, a two-step, a scheme, a pretentious act of Diplomacy does not cover nor conceal the truth of the actual behavior and choices any person makes.
The same is applied to Mr. Obama and his list of unqualified, corrupted Appointees to a failed Cabinet with people like Ken Salazar left to literally kill and destroy without one iota of concern for the public outrage at the destruction and bloody trail of horrifying slaughter and egregious waste.
Look at the graphic photos in this website on the truth behind the covert horse slaughter of our beloved horses:
Just Say Whoa!
Photographs of Horse Slaughter And How To Be A Voice To Stop The Betrayal
Prior to Obama duping me and so many others in the 2008 election, he told reporters that he would put an end to horse round-ups and commented on his disapproval of anything so inhumane. Oh, really, Mr. Obama? And now what is your rhetoric with Ken Salazar running loose in your Cabinet?
Let your voice be heard. Email, Call, Write, Join Horse and Burro Advocacy Groups and empower yourself and our future.
My next conversation in this radio show was with Attorney Alexis Baden-Mayer of The Organic Consumers Association.
They have a wonderful Newsletter that I love, and their website alone is both informative and motivating: www.organicconsumers.org
Alexis told us about the dangers of Pesticides in our food, and now the incredibly frightening dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms.
Once again, Cabinet Appointee to The Department of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, an unimpressive supporter and former employee of the big Agri-business industries– has sold out the American Taxpayer and given a big, fat free “PASS GO CARD” to DNA damaging and human cell killer companies like Monsanto and other big Agri-business, GMO monsters.
Sorry, I cannot suppress my disgust and horror of such abuse and deception at the Taxpayer and Consumer expense.
Why have our Organic, small Farmers who take pride in the quality of their products and care about the Earth, been harassed and threatened by the Big Agri-business companies with no help from the US Government?
Why are GMO’s not required to be labeled in Grocery Stores [at the VERY LEAST] and WHY on Earth are GMO’s even approved by the corrupted USDA [also under Tom Vilsack's watch]?
This is dangerous to the health of the planet, to all living beings, and certainly to the future of our food quality and Nutrition.
Remember, you CANNOT be healthy without healing foods. This is impossible.
It is disturbing to see the Propaganda of misrepresentation and outright lies today with Michelle Obama planting an Organic Garden in the lawn of the White House, as though this is going to smooth over the betrayal of our food supply to the millions of unsuspecting people who buy their groceries that are NOT rightfully, truthfully labeled as “Toxic” “Pesticide/Agent Orange Dangerous” or “GMO Frankenstein Food.”
See the irony? See the double-talk? See the Propaganda? See the spin-doctoring?
Don’t be fooled.
We are the people who have to stand up for REAL FOOD and stop this Frankenstein-food disaster from unfolding beyond the wretched damage it has already done.
Small Farmers are being relentlessly pursued, SUED, harassed, and forced to close-up their Farms as a result of the Genetically Modified seeds blowing in the wind and contaminating their Organic crops.
How crazy is this? The US Government does NOTHING to support or protect our Organic, Local Farmers and THEIR RIGHTS but they give taxpayer money, bailouts, and corporate welfare to these dangerous, environment destroying, monolithic, reckless, aggressive, arrogant, chemicalized, life-destroying companies?
What is Mr. Obama thinking? Why is someone so corrupt as Tom Vilsack and every knucklehead he oversees and hires at the USDA given a reign of terror over the American consumer, farmer, body of water, and all life?
The time is now to fight back. Regardless of your personal Political viewpoint, you cannot ignore these facts. They are surprising and truly shocking, but you need to know about them to do something to save your own life, the future of your heritage, the future of all food sources.
My Guest on May 5th, 2012, Susun Weed, gave us a lot to consider when we walk by our neighborhood pond, and even in our own yards and Gardens.
Susun was interviewed after a second broadcasting of the interview with Attorney Bruce Wagman, an Advocate for our Wild Horses and Burros.
You can find Susun Weed on her website Susunweed.com
I have one of Susun’s five books: “Healing Wise”, and I use it as a reference manual to learn more about the herbs growing around me and how to utilize them for healing.
It’s fun to recognize something you used to think was a weed, including the Dandelion! The Dandelion is a very powerful kidney and liver healer. I buy this herb in the dried ORGANIC/Wild cultivated form, along with Milk Thistle, and I take it every day.
My interview with Susun and all of my Guests is available on Podcast on this blog.
Enjoy. Empower. Engage. GET ANGRY ENOUGH TO TAKE ACTION.
Tags: Save our Wolves NOW
Last Saturday, August 20th, 2011, while I was still on hiatus, a replay of one of the most important shows on our American Wildlife was broadcast.
Our Wolves are, once again, under siege in the United States.
The balance of our Eco-system has been tampered with, and systematically destroyed by a minority of people who [undeservedly] put themselves into public offices that have the power to kill or to save our natural world.
Why do the cattle and oil industries consistently get their way in Washington? Why are these two dirty industries behind nearly every environmental disaster in this world?
You can listen to this re-broadcast on my Archives. Please take action and visit the web site for The Center For Biological Diversity. www.biologicaldiversity.org
Tags: Save our Horses from the Horrors of Slaughter in Mexico and Canada
My conversation with Jo Deibel of the Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue on the show broadcast on Saturday, April 30th, 2011, was one I will always remember.
Many of us have no idea how our beautiful, intelligent, gentle, graceful horses are found in “kill buyer” auctions and then sold for slaughter in Mexico and Canada! This horrible ‘business’ is an underworld of horror that most horse owners, let alone the general public, are totally unaware of.
Well, these kill buyers are bidding the lowest price on every horse, whether they are a previous loved pet or a race horse to even a breathtakingly beautiful Wild Mustang…. they are all vulnerable to winding up in these kill pens and sold literally to the
slaughter houses that are so horrifying that if everyone could see the undercover footage that I have seen…. there would be an outcry to STOP this evil practice immediately.
Why is it so difficult to enact laws immediately here in the United States to permanently BAN the act of crossing the border with truck loads of horses to be inhumanely and horrifyingly killed in slaughter houses? The “industry” of killing opposes it [of course] and they lobby, unrelentingly, our elected officials who apparently have no issues with shielding their own eyes from this inhumane, wretched business.
We, as American Citizens, Taxpayers, and Citizens of this world, need to send our emails, letters, postcards, and phone calls to every local, state and federal official to raise our voices to stop this crazy destruction of life.
I wanted to bring this issue to light for my listeners to show that one person, like Jo Deibel, the founder of Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue, has made a difference in her community and in the entire State of Pennsylvania by simply taking action to help these gorgeous creatures.
Check out Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue Web Site
Take action by supporting rescue organizations, sending emails to elected officials, and being conscious of all the environmental, wildlife, and domestic issues that impact our own quality of life and certainly have an impact on our future.
This post is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of innocent horses who have been mercilessly and brutally murdered in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, and France.
Stop this madness. Honor and Ethics can save this world.
“Think like a man of action– act like a man of thought.”
– French Philosopher Henri-Louis Bergson, Nobel Prize Winner in Literature, 1927
Tags: Animal Communication, Kindness and Love to Animals, Listen To Animal Wisdom, Listen to Your Intution
My Guest on Saturday, April 9th, 2011, was Animal Communicator Maia Kincaid. You can work with Maia directly for your own Animal Companions, Wildlife in your yard, or yourself. Check out her website at www.MaiaKincaid.com
Maia believes in her practice that all good people are able to learn to effectively listen to and communicate with animals, and the natural world around them.
Why is this important? When your animal is ill or in need of your ability to communicate with him/her for any reason, your ability to intuitively know what to do is paramount to their well being, longevity, and health.
This gift of communication with other living beings, along with the natural environment that sustains you, is an awesome tool that expands your horizons and even makes an impact on your own mental and physical well being.
Intuition is spiritual. Communication with animals is spiritual. Going Green has a spirituality to it that compels good people to clean up Mother Earth and to take responsibility for innovative, healthier lifestyle choices.
If Honor were a required part of corporate business planning, it would bring cleaner energy, respect for the earth and all life IMMEDIATELY.
Our natural world is relying on every person, consumer, taxpayer, business person, mom, dad, child, politician, teacher, school, community to be a voice of Honor and reclaim our connection to the Earth. Our lives are dependent upon our taking action, and standing up for changing the paradigm of oppressive, ‘box’ thinking– and subsequent behavior of blinded, uninspired, corrupted people who put themselves into leadership positions– but continue the endless spiral of degradation of our quality of life by giving polluting and destructive corporations carte blanche to reduce this life to one of autoimmune diseases, toxic water, toxic air, toxic food, sick children, and mentally and physically unhealthy people and animals.
We need to reach back to the ancient wisdom of the Earth and save our selves by first respecting our Environment, Animals, God, Spirituality, Intuition, Truth, and our purpose for being alive.
The broadcast of this show is now on podcast in the Archives section of this blog.
Being Conscious is a life of being Ethical, and this brings great rewards.
Tags: Be a voice for Animals, chained or neglected, Dogs Deserve Better, Ezekiel's story, frightened, save our beloved animal companions, Stop and DO SOMETHING if you see an animal lost
The question is not, ‘Can they reason?’ nor ‘Can they talk?’ but rather ‘Can they suffer?’
– Jeremy Bentham
My February 19th, 2011 show is all about how we treat our fellow living beings on this earth.
It says everything about us collectively when certain groups of people choose to be apathetic, even deliberately ignorant about how our wild animals, domestic animals, marine mammals, and farm animals are treated.
Ezekiel, a beautiful, pure bred German Shepherd, has one of the most compelling and heart wrenching stories I have read. This little boy is a survivor. He represents the millions of animals in America who are no longer wanted and are dumped somewhere to fend for themselves….
YouTube Video of Ezekiel\'s Rescue
My show with the founder of Dogs Deserve Better, Tamira Thayne, was one of many shows I have done and will continue to do for life-giving organizations like Dogs Deserve Better.
Look at the graphic photos on the website for Dogs Deserve Better, and see the horrible suffering and death that leaving an innocent, trusting animal on a chain in the snow, blistering sun, and without food, water, companionship, and even shelter from the weather can do… look at the horrors that this ignorant, reprehensible, irresponsible, and downright evil behavior can do to our most innocent, and certainly most BEAUTIFUL living beings.
This is unacceptable. Our laws have got to be enforced. And newer, more specific animal protection laws have got to be immediately passed by all State Legislatures to bring some justice for our Animal Companions…. our very best friends!
Who else is going to be by your side… and happy to see you everyday…. without judgement…. totally unconditional love.… So, don’t we owe these members of our society some justice, rights, and reverence?
I say “YES” and millions of other caring people do, too…
So, why, in 2011, do we still have shelters that are so badly run and don’t bother to advertise or get animals adopted…. they just kill them immediately.
The killing, or “euthanasia” in these types of shelters of terror are either “Heart Stick” or the Gas Chambers. Yes, the very same style used in Nazi Germany to kill the innocent prisoners are the VERY same style now used on our domestic animals– and ALL of the animals killed in these slow death, agonizing torture chambers are VERY ADOPTABLE…. pure breds to lovable mixed breeds…. none are spared.
A good article on the inhumane act of using the World War II killing chambers appeared in National Geographic in 2005:
National Geographic Article on Gas Killing Chambers
Some of the greatest moments in my life have been experienced when I just listened to my intuition and TOOK ACTION to save a life.
There were obstacles I had to overcome [like ignorance and jadedness of others] and I have had to stay focused on helping an animal in need because I knew that their lives were counting on me to follow through for them.
Totally worth it! The exhilaration of finally getting an animal or groups of animals to safety, and fostered until they can be adopted, has got to be the greatest feeling in this world. Helping others really does do something for YOU that is invaluable.
Adopt. Never buy a loving new family member.
There are PURE breed animals sitting in shelters today, waiting to be adopted. There are rescue groups of all kinds who specialize in pure bred animals, like German Shepherds to Collies to Persians and even exotic Birds!
Never buy from a Breeder or a “puppy” store! I think all breeders should be legally shut down and forced to pay their local municipality a yearly [large] fine to support the local animal shelters that are having to deal with the unethical business of ‘breeding’ more innocent animals into existence.
Please support Dogs Deserve Better in their quest to purchase the former property of Michael Vick [yeah, that really bad monster to Pit Bulls] in Virginia.
They are looking to turn this property into both a Memorial and into a Sanctuary. Please help a worthy organization like Dogs Deserve Better achieve this goal to help save even more lives and be the beacon of Honor that they have been for all animals.

This broadcast is in loving memory of and dedicated to our beloved Fur Child, Mina, Brandy, Chiquita, Jangles, Mr. Black, Little Gray, Gabriel, and Polar, and the many amazing animals who have come our way… We celebrate their lives and the love that they brought to us daily. Thank you, God.

I am committed to giving to my listeners the knowledge that they are entitled to have in their lives.
I am so keenly aware of the confusing and false messages that we are constantly bombarded with in all aspects of the media, so my mission with my radio shows is to open the door to honorable, organically healthy information that will give you the tools to be truthfully healthy both inside and out.
Your body wants to heal itself! Yeah! Isn’t that cool?
No body in the mainstream medical ‘healthcare’ paradigm is going to tell you this. It would cost them their profits. You staying on their anti-life drugs is what they want.
But your life is too important. Every single person has a God given mission to reach their fullest potential. To be healthy is supposed to be your birthright.
Making organic, healthy choices every day become habits that are life-giving and bring you emotional equilibrium and a sense of purpose.
“My own prescription for health is less paperwork and more running barefoot through the grass.” — Terri Guillemets
Twelve years ago, I went on a very dark journey. I believe that this was the BIG LIGHTBULB impetus to dusting off my own ingenuity and finding a better way to health.
I went from one Doctor to the next with no answers yet lots of money and time wasted. I was given one toxic, dangerous medical test after the next [most Doctors don't bother to mention the dangers of most medical testing procedures] AND I was prescribed so many antibiotics and other toxic drugs I cringe whenever I think about that time in my life.
The turning point was when I found myself in an abusive, predatory “father knows best” Doctor’s office. Alone. Desperate for answers. Trusting.
This Doctor was advanced in years. He was referred to me by a trusted friend from my church, and I made the mistake of blindly following this bad advise without having a healthy minded skepticism. However, most very ill people just want to trust a Doctor in white coat in the hope that they will find some relief from their suffering.
This Doctor did things to me that I cannot write about on my blog. I believe that I could not have been the first person he abused and patronized because he was “THE DOCTOR” in his mind, and you– the minions out there with no medical training– must shut up and be a good little patient.
Wow. Just briefly describing the situation gives me the creeps.
The moment I walked through the doors to the Upper East Side Brownstone medical office, it was bad energy times many billions…. I should have turned around and walked out…. but I had not yet been taught to LISTEN and to TAKE ACTION on my INTUITION.
The bad feeling was for good reason. The appointment was a nightmare of verbal, physical, and psychological abuse. This Doctor never helped me after my compliance and endurance of his tirades in his office and his overpowering me and controlling me psychologically that day.
From now on this predator will be referred to as a ‘bad doctor.’ He was evil, and lives in total darkness and pathetic ignorance. This is the antithesis of what we believe a health care provider should be, and it is unacceptable that America has become a nation of people who have been subjected to bad medicine in what somehow [politically] became ‘mainstream.’
To add insult to literal injury, this bad doctor was so arrogant that he would not take phone calls from patients and his policy was clearly one of being in total control in order to keep you, the needy patient, a hostage.
The X Rays, Cat Scans, Mammogram, and other horribly toxic and physically dangerous tests he sent me on were like being on a never ending gravy train [at my expense] for his friends in the medical testing business.
I was never given any answers after the toxic trail that led to nowhere. I got sicker and sicker after these tests, and I was finally so exhausted and ill that I could not function for more than 2 hours a day.
Most days I was in emotional agony from the physical disability of not having a body that would maintain any energy at such a young age. I was in the prime of my life, and I could not understand what was happening to my body as my mind tried ‘positive thinking’ and other measures to help overcome the chronic fatigue, malaise, yeast and bladder infections, kidney infection, constantly run down, always catching bronchitis and other viruses that were more than happy to find a weakened host.
My Thyroid and my Adrenals were totally exhausted and hurting. My Liver and Kidneys were so toxic that I started to have additional physical symptoms like dark spots on my skin.
I was devastated by these symptoms that were downplayed and even totally ignored by most doctors I took the time to trust.
My new career was stalled because I had not an ounce of energy for auditions, call backs, even classes or meetings with Managers and Agents. I was probably the only young Actor in NYC who dreaded the phone calls for Auditions! I was at a total low point.
My sex drive had plummeted to almost nothing. This was a source of a joke to this bad, abusive, wretched doctor who thought it was funny! Wow. The ignorance that is stemmed from the arrogance in our current medical system is astounding.
Loved ones, friends, and my husband were concerned, but certainly had no knowledge of how to help me.
My sugar cravings were off the charts. It controlled my life in a very bad way. I was like a sugar addict. In fact, later I learned that refined and processed sugar IS A DRUG! I was in constant craving mode for processed foods that I KNOW NOW were feeding the bacteria and viruses that had taken over my body. It was a merry-go-round of cravings and then horrible side effects.
After interviewing knowledgeable people, researching this medical misconduct and the prevalence it has in BOTH human and veterinary medicine, I am convinced that this is one of the least talked about and misunderstood phenomenon’s in America today.
For health and beauty: Stay away from refined sugar and processed/convenience blobs called ‘food’ but are, in reality, poison to your body.
Instead, use Stevia, Xylitol, and Agave Syrup for your sweeteners. They are delicious and healthy. Lucuma Fruit Powder and Mesquite Meal are also lesser known but totally nutritious, yummy sweeteners.
Today, I thank God every single day for my health, wellness and knowledge and for LITERALLY a new life.
I remember keenly the day I decided to reach deep within myself to fight back, reclaim my life, and find answers for myself.
I had no idea what holistic healing was. I did not know how to properly utilize food as medicine and to nourish my God-given body. I did not know what a Naturopathic Doctor was. I did not know what a genuine holistic practitioner was. I had no idea about the TOXIC cosmetics I was slathering all over my body, and putting on my face every day.
But as I started to take small steps every day in finding some answers, I found myself gravitating towards what I can only describe as light-filled people and organizations.
One day in New York City, I stumbled upon a Naturopathic Doctor in mid-town. His name was Dr. Stephen Felder. He saved my life.
Prior to finding Dr. Felder, I had seen a few natural-type doctors, but really got no answers from them. The meetings left me confused, and even frustrated that I had nothing after the exam and conversations with these practitioners. There was always ‘next time’ or an expensive, time consuming test, etc. No straight talk…. and this was very similar to what I had experienced in the Allopathic, mainstream system. There was never any time to give me the empowerment to make even small improvements that very day… it was about the money for some these practitioners, I am sorry to say.
I needed to be given the tools and the information to understand what was happening in my body and how to become 100% healthy WITHOUT spending a ton of money with agonizing tests, time, and spinning my wheels!
What Dr. Felder gave me was information. He gently guided me and told me WHY I was craving sugar: I had an overgrowth of Candida.
I remember asking, “What is Candida overgrowth? And what is Candida?” He was precise and informative in THE FIRST MEETING. He gave me the answers I needed and educated me about Leaky Gut Syndrome, which is what I had. He educated me about NUTRITION. He gave me a very easy, precise roadmap to health.
I was also given something called “Kinesiology” by Dr. Felder. I have had other practitioners perform this procedure on me many times since my initial meeting with Dr. Felder over a decade ago, and I must warn people that the accuracy of this simple test is highly dependent upon the honesty and integrity of the practitioner.
Dr. Felder got it right for me.
What was so beautiful about the beginning of my new journey into health and true wellness in both body, and in mind [and spirit, of course] was that I only had to see Dr. Felder a few times. That was it.
I was armed with the new information that had been missing in my life before the day I met Dr. Felder.
My wish for everyone who is chronically ill right now to have this incredible experience to health. It is such a gift to be given your life back!
I then found my way to so many amazing people, web sites, books, classes, nutrition schools, organizations, and whole food supplements and cleansing programs.
My life changed. An “About Face.”
I started to find ancient healing modalities that worked for me, and the vast ocean of new information was totally exciting to learn about. Each month I got stronger, had more energy, and I experienced the wholesome healing that I realize is “God’s Garden” so explicitly described in the Bible that was given to us to utilize for health and longevity, and not to abuse and synthesize into chemicals!
After this decade of self-empowerment and total lifestyle restoration, I am still on an enlightened journey of learning everyday.
I see everyday as a really cool opportunity to learn more. It’s like a treasure hunt for information that has been tucked away from what we all know as ‘mainstream’ information.
The up side to getting healthy is that my memory skills, intelligence, inquisitiveness, brightness, clarity are dramatically and ASTRONOMICALLY fit and sharp.
All this is beautiful.
I am stronger in every way, and I choose natural beauty because it is glowing, honest, irresistible and empowering.
But when living in this chemically toxic world, and having been injured from past vaccines and other toxins, the pursuit of being healthy is a daily lifestyle regimen.
This journey has led me to become knowledgeable in Green Building practices and materials, environmental activism, wildlife protection, food as the most important daily choice for healing you can make, animal reverence, farming practices, vegan and vegetarian lifestyle choices for health, natural makeup and skin/hair care, organic living practices, non-toxic home cleaning and gardening, holistic human and animal care, holistic dentistry [and why MOST professed holistic dentists are clueless regarding the toxins they are still installing in people's mouths!] and other consumer advocacy issues….
When you create opportunities to help others, you are gorgeous. You FEEL gorgeous on the inside. This comes out on your face, and your energy is shifted to enlightenment.
It all starts with a clean body. L. Ron Hubbard wrote one of the most important books you could read entitled, “Clear Body, Clear Mind.”
Clean out the toxins in your body, then clean out your makeup kit– wear a mask and gloves when you remove the junky makeup from its jars [and recycle the jars].
Replace your daily regimen with organic, hand made, honorably made cosmetics and you will feel and see the difference.
