I AM A PRODUCER!

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, GET READY CAUSE HERE I COME!

There's no doubt about it, I am a producer. At the end of the day I enjoy knowing that I produced something, anything. It's not part of my physical or spiritual DNA not to produce. That doesn't mean I can't relax because I'm real Good at taking time off to relax, which I feel produces a better me. Oh I'm all about producing. It's not in me to just sit back and watch my days go by without producing. A single thought that I have can turn into something tangible. I find that utterly fascinating even if it is producing something as simple as a great meal. I can't just plunk down and not produce. That's just too lethargic for my hyped up spirit. I am a thinker and a producer, that's what I do.

I get a real charge out of taking something created in spirit and manifesting it into a physical thing. I look at my websites and remember when they were just a thought that morphed further into idea. Ah . . the beginning stage of production. And what's truly fascinating about what I have created here is not at all a physical thing. It's not tangible, it's not concrete substance. You can't hold my websites in your hand, eat them, wear them or drink them. You can't sit on them, lay on them or climb them because they aren't concrete but somehow I have managed to make them palpable. That just intrigues the heck out of me. Cyberspace, the invisible but visible substance.

I enjoy entertaining my mind with the mind of man. Naturally man's mind would fascinate me as I am a Gemini and Gemini rules the mind. Just to clarify, when I use the term 'man', I use it to mean the totality of mankind including man and 'wo'man. It is man's brain that captivates and bewilders me. The psychology of man doesn't really intrigue me; it is the philosophy of man that gets the cogwheels in my brain crankin'. I am a mentalist and I enjoy mentating, which is why I call myself a mentator. I provoke and invoke thought, my own or someone else's, thereby instigating production. I actually think for a living.

This morning my musical DLG (Download from God) was "Days Go By" by Lifehouse. This song is one that I often have set on repeat on my iPod while riding around the neigborhood on my bicycle. The song speaks for itself. It stimulates me 'as a producer' and maybe it will you too.

DAYS GO BY
by Lifehouse

Sit down, sit back and watch the days go by
Are you ever gonna live before you die
And when things fall apart
The world has come undone
Leave it all behind
Leave the loneliness alone
You wait forever blind

So come on and leave the years
When you watched the days go by
Come on and leave the fears
That you were afraid to find
'Cause while you wait inside
The days go by

So all the memories fade
And the days go by
Forget the lonely yesterdays in mind
I know it's never gonna be the way you like
I know you don't wanna think about the endlessness you find
You wait forever blind

So come on and leave the years
When you watched the days go by
Come on and leave the fears
That you were afraid to find
You're waiting for your time (waiting for your time)
All these days gone wrong
Who broke your fall
What a way to learn

So come on and leave the years
When you watched the days go by
Come on and leave the fears
That you were afraid to find
'Cause while you wait inside
The days go by

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

GET READY CAUSE HERE I COME!

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, WHAT GIVES YOU GAS?

I had the absolute funniest reaction to a musical DLG (Download from God) this morning than I've had in a long time. I mean this was hysterical. As you can see I've spent a significant amount of time over the past three days re-organizing, re-structuring, re-coloring and re- anything else I could to this website over the past three days. I've also thrown off a lot of pork. With all the planetary shifts I've been discussing over on your horoscopes pages I've been pushing myself beyond my own known limits. I kinda surprised myself to tell you the Truth and wouldn't you know . . . the Universe picked up on it and answered me back with this morning's musical DLG.

"I've seen my limits and gone beyond them."
Ellen MacArthur~
(Youngest woman to sail around the world)

I was all snuggled up feeling all warm and cozy when all of the sudden I was awakened by a song from Rare Earth called, "Get Ready!" This song has special significance for me because it was the opening song to my former radio show here in St. Louis. I was always a nervous wreck just before I went on the air but once the red light went on and the sign in the booth lit up and said, "On The Air," this song came jammin' through my headphones and I was ready to rumble. The song starts with a crowd roaring, which always got me going. There was no turning back now. I would dance in my chair and play the air drums and then once the tambourine part joined in I would put both hands up in the air and shake them as if I was shaking the tambourine while still dancing in my chair. When the song said, "You're alright!" I would turn my hands and point to myself . . then I'd point to myself once again when the song said, "You're outta sight!" I'd just be smilin' and dancin' in my chair psyching myself UP! Then when the song said, "Well, Tweedle E Dee, Tweedle E Dum, Look out baby 'cause here I come . . . " the sound engineer slowly cued down the music then it was just me talking, "Good evening and welcome to XXXX, I'm your host Dr. Loretta Standley and . . . "

When this song came through as my musical DLG I jumped up and thought I was late for work. I jumped up so fast that one leg still wasn't quite ready to rumble and down on the floor I went. Honestly, the thud of my body hitting the floor sounded like I weighed more than I really do. At least I hope so. (winky wink) It took me a few minutes to regain my wits because I was so in the moment of that song that I felt like the radio show started without me. That was NOT a Good feeling and I was really shaken-up for a bit. Boy, the Universe (God) sure does know how to motivate and get the attention of ol' Loretta! And for a person who wakes up super-dooper fast I just couldn't snap out of it. For a moment I had considered calling my sound engineer to have him plug me in through the phone line so I could do my show from home. I expected him to go to a commercial because I wasn't in the booth. I was really roughed up and slapped around over this musical DLG.

After my brain finally caught up to my Life today the song started making sense. This past June 2008 I had lost a ton of shows off my www.drstandleylive.com online radio show in a Mercury Retrograde software crash. Yeah, that's it! Blame shift! Blame Mercury Retrograde! Since that time I have yet to put those shows back on the site. I named my other website 'drstandleylive' because it is not just an intention but my goal to turn that site LIVE so that you can actually call into the show LIVE from anywhere in the world.

Well, once again I have seen my limits and gone beyond them as I changed this entire site over the past few days to a more personal theme that reflects who I am. This site is not a kit or a template, it is homegrown where I actually have to write code. To change it over to a templated website is a whole other ear of wax. Well I have adopted a new daily regimen that is actually workable for my fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants lifestyle, which has been instrumental in posting your daily horoscopes in a timely manner and having some fairly consistent Daily Messages. This also enables me to run over to the www.NativeAmericanAnimalMedicine.com once again and get that site incorporated in my new schedule. I cannot believe I just used the word "schedule". Well, slap my ears with jam and roll me in the mud!

Well folks, I think we all know where this storyline is headed, back to the airwaves and doing the thing that I do best . . . TALKING! That's why I like phone conversations better than e-mail. By the way, your Native American Animal Instinct is finally back on track. Check it out, now that I have figured out how to keep the Weekly Horoscopes updated. Next I'll start getting those older shows posted for this year and get on the stick creating a real LIVE show so we can chat up some real juicy spiritual, philosophical and ethereal mentation.

In the meantime, "Get ready 'cause here I come."

WHAT GIVES YOU GAS?

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, TO 'BEE' OR NOT TO BE

Strange title for a Daily Message, wouldn't you agree? This morning I woke up hearing my favorite guitar player of all time as my musical DLG (Download from God). Every time I hear Mason Williams play "Classical Gas," it just gives me gas, no pun intended. (winky wink) I mean it really gives me a charge. Did I ever tell you that I have secret desire to play the guitar? Well about a month ago I decided that I was finally going to learn how to play.

Every year on New Year's Eve I make resolutions that push me to try new things. Since I haven't left the planet yet I may as well load up a few more things on my life resume' that I haven't yet experienced, ate, seen, said or accomplished. I only make resolutions that push me to learn or try something new, so I've already decided that I'm going to learn how to play the guitar next year. Why not, I'm only 47 years old, I have plenty of time. When I was little my dad wanted me to learn how to play the banjo but I wasn't up for it then, I chose the drums. Well now, I'm up for it, so I'm going to buy me a guitar for Christmas (from Craigslist.com) and finally learn how to play. Why buy a new one when I can buy one cheap as a beginner? I also have on my list that I'm going to learn Morse Code, the Greek Alphabet and Sign Language. Isn't that interesting, all forms of communication. If I can squeeze Latin in then I'll do that too. I'm sooooo Gemini, we're all about language and communication. Well Gemini also rules the fingers, hands, arms and shoulders so I should be a cracker-jack at guitar by the time I'm 50! Yeah baby, that's how I roll. I can see me now playing Classical Gas like Mason Williams.

Well since Mason Williams gave me gas this morning (hehehe) I popped up out of bed with enough gas to get all the changes complete on this site that you see today. I've been typing like a wild woman. I just felt this serious DLG (Download from God) that I needed to take the carnival colors off the site and make it more personal to me. That's why you now see more of a Native American color theme. It just came to me like a full tank of gas. Before I even brushed my teeth I was typing out all of the changes that you see on the website today. A few people have been trying to get me to change the font and I fought it for quite a while (years in fact) but today, Mason Williams gave me gas. I'll bet you wish he gave me gas every morning huh?

If you have been reading my writings long enough then you know that I absolutely Love music that has a full orchestra which makes me even more partial to this song. I really enjoy seeing Glen Campbell play this too but Mason Williams deserves all the credit. I've been listening to this song literally all day long. Hmmmm . . I wonder . . do they make guitars shaped like that just to sit on your knee like Mason Williams has it or is it an acoustic thing? I guess I'll find out when I start taking lessons but for now I really need to just go brush my teeth. Enjoy Mason Williams and I hope he gives you gas too.

TO 'BEE' OR NOT TO BE

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, SOUL VACATION

I live in an area of St. Louis that could easily remind you of Greenwich Village in New York City. It's largely a residential area like the Village and a community that has character, charm and personality. And just like the Village my community is sandwiched between two very well known universities, St. Louis University and Washington University (the location of the Vice-Presidential debate). Also sandwiched between these two universities is one of the largest urban parks in the country (Forest Park) at 1,371.75 acres complete with a zoo, two museums, horse stables, an opera theater, a boathouse, trails, two golf courses, ball fields and so much more. My neighborhood also has one of the top ranked hospitals in the country. We have 37 restaurants, night life, a library, bookstores, galleries, antique shops, boutiques, more than enough coffee shops and a fancy schmancy place where all you do is play a serious game of Chess. The architecture of the neighborhood is mostly historic, majestic and grandiose. It's a playful and easy neighborhood to live in, which is another reason why I can survive so effortlessly without a car and ride a bicycle for transportation. I haven't owned a car for seven years.

The people in my neighborhood are just about as diverse as you can imagine. In any combination of coupling between two people you can visualize, that is who you will find living on my block. The same goes for all the other streets in the neighborhood. It goes without saying that you have to be an individual that appreciates diversity, range and variety in order to live happily in my neighborhood. If you are prejudice, narrow-minded or intolerant, you will not be comfortable in my area. If you are a racist, a chauvinist or a bigot, you might have a horrible conversation with yourself in your mind. If you are judgmental, hypercritical or condemning, you may be overwrought with opinion. My neighborhood is notably affluent but at the same time we have more social programs and charities headquartered in our zip code than anywhere else in the State of Missouri. This in turn brings even more diversity to the neighborhood with those in need of those social programs and charities. Have you ever been behind a cyclist on the street? Well in my neighborhood you best be patient because you may find yourself behind a cyclist or a person in a motorized wheelchair. That may seem odd to you, but those of us in the neighborhood just see another person getting to the place that they need to be.

There is a wonderful sense of acceptance in my small area of the world where you can really be yourself no matter how eclectic or eccentric you might be. No one will think twice about it. No one here plans on changing anytime soon in order to make another person comfortable in their skin. It's interesting because many people from suburbia will come into my area of the City on the weekends in order to do something different and cultural. This is definitely 'the place' to sit at an outdoor cafe and people watch.

This mornings musical DLG (Download from God) reminded me just how much I Love and enjoy my own back yard. This morning I woke up hearing "No Rain" by Blind Melon. This is a wonderful song, featuring in the video below a "Bee Girl" in a homemade bee costume. At the beginning of the video there was no acceptance, appreciation or recognition for her joy of simply being a bee. She sets out on a quest to find someone, anyone, who would appreciate and accept her for bee-ing. That's all she wanted to be. There were people who just couldn't get their brain wrapped around the fact that she was a bee. Some didn't quite know how to respond to her and others chose not to acknowledge her existance at all. Bee Girl had a choice; she could bee or not bee. It's obvious Bee Girl couldn't change if she wanted to. How could she? She's a bee for Pete's sake!

Folks, before you condemn, slam, criticize, judge or poke fun of others for who they are, how about you get comfortable in your own dang skin and just 'bee' your self and accept you for who you are. (The words are below the video)

NO RAIN
by Blind Melon

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin' the puddles gather rain
And all I can do is just pour some tea for two
and speak my point of view
But it's not sane, it's not sane

I just want some one to say to me
I'll always be there when you wake
Ya' know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made

And I don't understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain that there's no rain
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape
escape......escape......escape......

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
ya' don't like my point of view
ya' think I'm insane

It's not sane......it's not sane

I just want some one to say to me
I'll always be there when you wake
Ya' know I'd like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I'll have it made
And I'll have it made
oooooooooh
And I'll have it made
You know I'm really gonna really gonna have it made
You know I'll have it made

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

SOUL VACATION

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, The Gift

It's been a long time since I woke up to "Drops of Jupiter" by Train as a musical DLG. Actually this happened yesterday morning (Monday) and interestingly enough I woke up so fast this morning that I didn't catch today's musical DLG. With "Drops of Jupiter" still on my mind I feel compelled to share this with you.

Yes, it's true, "Drops of Jupiter" is one of my musical totems. Who could have guessed that? It's about as close to my personal theme song as you can get. The line in the song, "And that heaven is over-rated" can be a bit confusing but I understand this as such an appreciation for being in the physical moment. I get it baby!

Since the beginning of 2008 I've been on a 'soul vacation' and half way checked out of my North Node Virgo in some very interesting ways. I happen to be a VERY detailed and organized person although this year I just kept getting behind schedule on my websites. That is out of character for me. I'm always ahead and not behind; that's just how I roll. The great news is this has been a wonderful year of personal growth for me on a very physical world level. I don't mean a spiritual (spirit) level, I mean flat out physical world. Many of the experiences this year have completely changed the way I think, look and react toward myself, which therefore impacts the way I think, look and react toward others, especially those closest to me. It's been quite an enlightening year and quite frankly one of the best years in learning about myself in my 47 years.

I just want you to know that I'm back from my 'soul vacation' and I'm committing to my North Node Virgo. I've been willing to go half way North Node Virgo but the other half I've been relunctant because I didn't want it to take away any of my freedom. That's my Jupiter in Aquarius rebelling against structure and routine. Having a routine is a very tough pill for me to swallow folks. I mean you would not believe what a challenge that is for me to routinely do anything. I like being ready to rumble all the time. In other words, I eat when I'm hungry and not just because it's time to eat. I always claim that I'm soooo organized because I'm too lazy to waste my time looking for my keys or purse or to show up late for that matter. That's too much dang energy. And I like a perfectly kept clean dusted organized space. That goes there and this goes here. So I guess in a sense I identify closely with routine, I just don't want to schedule my Life and commit to doing things at certain time all the time. I'm very Type-A and it's being so organized that contributes even more to my spontaneity. Folks, I can easily just float away under my own power and giggle the whole way while asking everyone else, "What's there to fear?" Even so, I recognize that I need routine. I can be so spiritual and ethereal that I forget about my own physical world and being 'human'. While everyone else is trying to be more 'spiritual', I recognize the need to be more 'physical' (human). It's a bit bizarre, I know, but I get it.

I'm back from my soul vacation and back in the atmosphere from my stay on the Moon and I'm ready to flip myself over like a pancake and be all North Node Virgo and release my South Node Pisces dual fishies that chase each other's tail. A little tethering won't hurt this hippie chick one bit. Remember the Uranus / Saturn opposition lightning bolt strike that I wrote about in your Weekly Horoscope? Well, if you don't change your status quo, then this lightning bolt strike will change you. I've decided to voluntarily flip myself over and change so it doesn't have to be done for me. I now recognize how I can have routine and my skippity-do-dah freedom too.

DROPS OF JUPITER
by Train

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a time to change, ey, ey, ey, ey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like Spring and she talks like June, ey, hey

Well tell me did you sail across the Sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is over-rated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does Tae-Bo
Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Can you imagine no Love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you
Even when I know you're wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance,
Five-hour phone conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me

But tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the Milky Way

Tell me did you sail across the Sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is over-rated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself

And did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day

And did you fall from a shooting star
Fall from a shooting star

And now you're lonely lookin' for yourself out there

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

THE GIFT

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, 'Crazy' Train of Thought

This morning my musical DLG (Download from God) was one of my favorite musical totems. I know, I know, they're all my favorite but that's why they're my favorites! The musical DLG came from a short-lived TV show back in the very early 80's that was a superhero comedy-drama. I don't remember ever waking up to this song, although I probably have and just don't remember. Every time I hear, "Theme from the Greatest American Hero", it just brings tears to my eyes. The song and the TV show remind me of 'the gift' more than it does anything heroic.

By the way, did I ever tell you that I'm a superhero junkie? I enjoy the comics, movies, costumes, all of it! I completely dig on the notion of superhumans and superheroes. But that's just me and I digress . . .

This superhero TV show only lasted two years (1981-83) before the plug was pulled. The series began with teacher Ralph Hinckley (played by William Katt who is also a cutie pie) coming back from a field trip with his students. The school bus breaks down so he sets out on a long walk through the desert to go get help. As he's walking along a swerving car barely misses him and it's FBI agent Bill Maxwell (played by Robert Kulp) who tells him that he couldn't control the car. Ralph gets in the car and a spaceship appears and tells both of them that they are to work together and save the world. Ralph will be given the power but they are to work together. They're given a black case (the gift) and inside is this silly red suit with a cape that gives Ralph superhuman abilities. As subsequent shows go, the series is more about Ralph trying to get use to 'the gift' more than it has anything to do with the plot. In the video below you will see Ralph trying to fly in the silly red suit as he's flailing his arms and legs instead of taking the typical superhero posture of straight arms and straight legs. He's having a bit of trouble, to say the least, trying to master 'the gift'.

I think you know where I'm going with this folks. We all have 'the gift' and we can choose to use it or not. We can also choose to misuse, abuse or disuse 'the gift'. I firmly believe that I wake up with these musical DLGs playing in my head because it is 'the gift' and that I am absolutely supposed to share it with you. I can't imagine keeping this to myself. I get what today's musical DLG means for me but 'the gift' is for you too. What do you think today's musical DLG means for you? Much like Ralph's gift which comes in the form of a silly red suit, my gift is clair-audience where I hear music and no radio is playing. I also have 'the gift' of intuitive insight. I also have 'the gift' of writing and speaking very simple, plain and to the point. It's all a form of communication but that's my gift(s) and you have gift(s) too. Ralph could have said, "No way that's too hard and I'm not doing it!" . . . Jesus could have said, "Nope, too much pain, leave me out of it" . . . Sidney Poitier could have said, "I'm not acting like that!" . . . I could say, "What, huh, say what?" . . . and so could you.

Don't think for one second that I didn't feel off balance, or that my arms and legs didn't flail about or that I didn't run head first into a couple of walls while trying to figure out or get use to my gift(s). Further, I seriously doubt that while God was passing out the gifts He looked at you and said, "Nope, not you. You don't get a gift." That's just ridiculous, self-pity and sour-pout thinking.

I have asked you this before and I'm going to ask you again. Have you ever given a gift to someone and they didn't use it, they hid it or treated it like trash? How did that make you feel? Now imagine how it must feel for God when He gave you a gift and you choose not to use it, you hide it or you treat it like trash. Believe me folks, if God gave you one gift, He gave you other gifts to support it.

THEME FROM THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO
by Mike Post and Stephen Geyer

Look at what's happened to me,
I can't believe it myself.
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world,
It should've been somebody else.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

It's like a light of a new day-,
It came from out of the blue.
Breaking me out of the spell I was in,
Making all of my wishes come true-.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer.
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

'CRAZY' TRAIN OF THOUGHT

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, What To Do With Panic

This morning I woke up hearing "Crazy Train" by Ozzie Osbourne. As a clair-audient, music in my head is as audible to me as it would be if the radio was on. Ozzie is no doubt 'out there' but in my musical opinion, he's a musical genius. I specifically remember the last time I heard "Crazy Train" as a musical DLG and it was during the Summer of 1999. I was at a workshop in Springfield, Missouri on an equestrian farm that was a holistic education center.

It was day four of the workshop when I woke up with "Crazy Train" playing in my head and it wouldn't leave. When something like this happens then I just let myself receive it and don't fight it. You probably know what this is like when you get a song in your head and it won't leave. This was one of those times. As the morning rolled on I just couldn't concentrate. While everyone else was participating in a sound therapy chant with Tibetan and crystal singing bowls, I was over in the corner bouncing quietly on one of those big yoga fitness balls looking out the window at a horse standing under a huge apple tree listening to "Crazy Train". Once the horse and I energetically connected he took off and started running. He ran all over the pasture, then he would stop and look at me and take off running again. During the break I told everyone I had a strong sense that I needed to leave. It was an emergent feeling (very 911ish) and I absolutely had to leave at that moment. Not that I felt anything was wrong at home but that I just needed to leave. Everyone understood the gift of intuition, no one pressed me to stay and no one chose to go to that 'be careful worried' place. It was as simple as intuition and I was following it.

The minute I got in the car and closed the door I heard the very first line of Crazy Train, "ALL ABOARD, hahahahhahahaa!" The music stopped and I giggled. It was just like someone had turned off the radio. Now I knew this was the right decision. Driving back to St. Louis from Springfield is a 3-1/2 hour, 216 mile trip so I had plenty of time to think. Within seconds of leaving the city limits of Springfield there was a question mark in my head that said, "Why do my patients get well so fast?" So I just answered the question outloud.

I told myself the first thing I do is make a 'spiritual' connection with my patient. I challenge them as to what they believe. After all, if they stood in what they believe, how did they end up in my office? If they believed their body was a temple, why did they abuse it with food, lack of exercise, etc. Whatever they claimed to believe was not how they were living their life. Then I heard, "Write that down." So I got a pen out of my purse and on a receipt that was on the seat I wrote the words, "Spiritual Involvement."

The second thing I said outloud was that I do a physical exam and teach them about their body parts. I challenge them on what they are doing and aren't doing to their physical body. I get a history about other members in their family and their physical bodies. Who is going to end the "crazy train" of poor health in the family and influence the rest of the family members? Then I heard, "Write that down." So I wrote on the receipt the words, "Physical Energy."

The third thing I said outloud was that Renee (my Clinic Coordinator) would always comment on how my patients would cry within five minutes of beginning their appointment. She would always say, "How do you do that?" Somehow I knew the right thing to say and pull out what was really going on. The miserable job, the sad and disappointing relationship, etc. I went to that place with everyone and then tears would flow. Now we could get on with the healing. Then I heard, "Write that down." So I wrote on the receipt the words, "Emotional Attachments."

The fourth thing I said outloud was that I talk to my patients about what they are putting into their body and what is coming out of their body. After all, I did have a holistic pharmacy in my clinic and I also did colonic irrigations. I also refused to supplement my patients bad lifestyle with vitamins, herbs and homeopathy. Once the patient changed their lifestyle, then I recommended the appropriate supplements otherwise it would have been a case of me making money off them getting nowhere. Then I heard, "Write that down." So I wrote on the receipt the words, "Chemical Balance."

The fifth thing I said outloud was that I talk to my patients about their intuition. I wanted to know what they thought the problem was and not what some previous doctor told them or what someone else thought. I wanted to know what they thought the problem was right from their gut. And I refused to go any further until they came up with something. I think it's a load of bull when a psychic or intuitive says they cannot read themselves but they can read other people. Oh please! That's because they don't want to listen to their own load. Folks, as a 'sensitive' and an 'intuitive' who is clair-audient and clair-sentient I can tell you there are plenty of times when I choose consciously and unconsciously not to listen. Thank God I have friends who hear me when I can't. After thinking about how I teach my patients how to use their intuition, I heard, "Write that down." So I wrote on the receipt the words, "Intuitive Response."

Suddenly it dawned on me. I was obviously creating the word S-P-E-C-I-A-L. It was an acronym! I started praising God for pushing me to leave the workshop early so I would have plenty of time to receive His DLG and what He wanted me to do with this information. I had a 3-1/2 hours and 216 miles to receive all the information. Oh you betcha there are no accidents. I knew the word was S-P-E-C-I-A-L and that the last letter had to be Love. I heard, "Write that down." So I wrote on the receipt the words, "Loving Respect." Then I started pushing my intuition trying to force out of my brain what was the letter "A". Instead of letting the "A" come to me as all the other letters had, I was pushing and now I couldn't even think. So I stopped thinking about it and turned on the radio.

Now this was interesting, it was Ozzie Osbourne singing again. For some reason I cannot remember the exact song that was playing but it was definitely Ozzie Osbourne singing one of his really outlandish darker songs. As much as I enjoy his music, I remember the song I was listening to made me say, "Now why does he do that? Here God gave him all these wonderful talents and he sings something like that? Why do artists do that when they have all this talent?" Then I yelled, "That's it!" Then I heard, "Write that down." So I wrote on the receipt the words, "Artistic Expression and Creation." It hit me that God is the big "C" (Creator) and we are the little "c" (creative). Now the acronym had everything wholistic that I believe wholism to be . . Spiritual Involvement, Physical Energy, Emotional Attachments, Chemical Balance, Intuitive Response, Artistic Creation and Expression and Loving Respect. This is how the Treat Yourself Special Program was born. SPECIAL is such a cool word because it's describes each of us perfectly. We are all unique, matchless, exclusive, irreplacable, distinctive, rare and absolutely one of a kind. Geez, when I think about it on the deep level, I just feel sooooo special because there's only one of me and I can only be imitated but not duplicated. (winky wink) There's something very cool about that. And who the heck are we when we try to change someone else or complain, judge, gossip or whine about who they are.

I was only one hour into my trip home and the entire Treat Yourself Special Program was laid out before me. It was given to me because I was the one chosen to do it and it manifested itself because I listened and accepted the mission. When you are receiving a DLG (Download from God), why the heck would you doubt something like that? We're talking about God here! It doesn't make sense to doubt it, as if we would know better than God! I firmly believe that if you don't do something with the idea that God planted in your heart, then someone else will be given that DLG (Download from God) and then they will be entrusted to do something with it. That's how some people end up saying they thought of the same thing as someone else years earlier. Well, that's really nice but if you didn't do it, you don't get credit for it. OUCHY! And what if I just thought about creating this website and but didn't do it. Folks, if a crazy train of thought has come to you, my advice to you is get on board! . . .

CRAZY TRAIN
by Ozzie Osbourne
(See lyrics below the video)

ALL ABOARD! . . . hahahahahaha

Crazy, but that's how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe it's not too late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate
Mental wounds not healing
Lifes a bitter shame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

I've listened to preachers
I've listened to fools
I've watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you live the role
Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words
Yeh-h

Heirs of a cold war
That's what we've become
Inheriting troubles I'm mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
I'm living with something that just isn't fair
Mental wounds not healing
Who and whats to blame
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

"Now get out there, go place yourself UP!
and practice being you."

WHAT TO DO WITH 'PANIC'

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Where Is Your Jupiter?

It stands to reason, if you can't handle something small, then you certainly won't be able to handle something big. If you can't handle ten dollars, then you won't be able to handle one hundred dollars. If you don't Love yourself, then Loving someone else will be like swimming after a beach ball in the water. The harder you swim, the further it floats away from you. So if you innately know this or something else that relates on this level, then why panic over it? Why panic if you know it already? It's not like its a surprise. Why panic if you blatantly choose chaos and not order? If you are one that chooses difficulty, then my question is, "Why not take acting lessons and make some money off those emotions because they certainly won't serve you anywhere else but the stage."

Panic is defined as a sudden overwhelming feeling (usually fear) that
dominates, replaces or prevents reasonable thought or action.
Panic can influence action, as well as, inaction.

Example I: The deer in the headlights frozen in fear. The impulsive and reactive driver swerving off the road. Both the deer and the driver panicked.

Example II: There are two legal concepts of panic that I know of, one is called 'emotional suffering' and the other one is called 'self-defense'. I'm not certain where 'temporary insanity' fits in but it seems like it belongs here.

Example III: In many jurisdictions it is against the law to yell, "FIRE!" when there is no fire in order to prevent a stampede due to panic.

It is interesting how we respond to panic in our own way. There are some people who are literally frozen in fear, others become confused and don't know what to do or think, still others will relax and follow the leader, while a few others will emerge as the leader. I find my own actions and reactions to certain situations quite fascinating. The great news is we have the ability to control panic through discipline, order and training. The more ordered we become, the easier it is to avoid and divert the chaos. Imagine if we had no stop lights, policemen, house rules, food recipes or health protocols. What if there was no chain of command?

Folks, all I'm saying is that you have to find a way to control the chaos and panic. It really begins with a decision and then you take action on that decision. Whether it is your weight, your financial situation, the cleanliness of your home, your attitude at home or the health of your relationships, you have the ability to control and discipline yourself. You know exactly what to do and what not to do. It's not rocket science and you know it. There is no better time to begin this discipline than now, during the Aries Moon and if I were you, I would take advantage of it. Please read your Daily Horoscope for more information on this Aries Moon. The end to personal chaos and panic can end with you, today. It's really just a decision.

WHERE IS YOUR JUPITER?

AudioOsda Sunalei [Good Morning in Cherokee]

Read the last Daily Message titled, Personal Responsibility

Jupiter is the planet of luck, abundance, extra blessings, expansion, opportunity, increase, optimism, wisdom and improvement. It is the planet of benevolence, generosity, enthusiasm, sponaneity, the higher mind, aspiration and gain through experience.

The planet Jupiter

The Jupiter glyph represents the ascending crescent of the personality which is no longer confined to the material plane, which is why Jupiter moves beyond what you can actually see and finds gain. Jupiter naturally rules the Sun sign Sagittarius and it rules the weekday, Thursday. This makes Thursday the luckiest day of the week. I just Love Thursday's. Anyone who really knows me, knows that I always say, "My weekend begins on Thursday." But then again, I work 7 days a week so everyday is Thursday to me.

I think Jupiter is one of the most important planets in your Natal Chart simply because of all the wonderful things I just named in the first paragraph so why not take advantage of it. My favorite description of Jupiter is the last one I named which is, gain through experience. You see folks, Jupiter is THE MOST freedom-loving sign of the zodiac. I make no bones about it that I absolutely and unequivocally DO NOT like to be told what to do because I will start throwing wrenches in the cogwheels and stop everything if someone starts bossing me around, trying to control me or dictates what I can or cannot do. Okay wait a minute, I wouldn't put myself in that position to begin with so what am I saying? hehehehe! I say when, where, why, what and how. That's just who I am and it's all due to the placement and aspects of Jupiter in my Natal Chart.

It's vital to get to know your Jupiter because the more you know about this wonderful blessed planet, the more it will bless you. It's the luckiest point in your chart. But then again, I really don't believe in luck so I prefer to call it the "extra blessings planet". I'm so fiesty with my Jupiter because it's in Aquarius. Jupiter is THE MOST freedom-loving planet and Aquarius is THE MOST freedom-loving sign. When you put the two together, it is freedom AT ALL COSTS! This is exactly why I have worked for myself since I was 22 years old. Again, I say when, who, where, why, what and how much. I do not like limits or ceilings, in fact those words don't even compute with me. I can't even relate to that kind of thinking. Someone else might see a ceiling or even a glass ceiling but I sure as heck don't. As soon as you buy the self-limiting idea, then there's the self-limiting belief and the slow down. I won't even waste my time thinking like that.

I am a person who absolutely believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but no one is in any way entitled to my life, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness. There's my rub with Barack Obama and his "redistribution of wealth", which is interesting because he also has Jupiter in Aquarius but his is aspected different than mine. Even though we both have a freedom-fist in the air, our approach is different. And believe it or not, mine is more conservative than his. It's now 2:13 AM and I'm working when I want, for as long as I want, as hard as I want. Even though this is the Life I chose, it's a tough pill for me to swallow that I choose to stay up working until the wee hours and my abundance gets redistributed at the hand of someone else. I do have a problem with that. My motto is, "Go find your own dang happiness and leave mine alone!" Now wait . . but then again, I have no problem with really smart redistribution but not hand-outs or entitlement. That's probably why I Love the website www.kiva.org so much. Now that's some smart redistribution but I say when, where, why, who and how much. Wouldn't that be great if we had something like that in every country including the U.S.?

The other thing about Jupiter in Aquarius is that this placement of Jupiter knows no class, racial or religious distinctions. Those of us with Jupiter in Aquarius are cool with you being who you want to be and don't even try to tell me who I can be. If you want to tattoo yourself like a mural and paint your hair blue, that's fine. That has nothing to do with me so why make it about me? If you want to be an atheist, that's fine too but you might want to pray you're right but then again atheists probably don't pray and that's okay too. If you are spiritual and not religious, that's fine too but knocking religion doesn't make you a more spiritual and enlightened person. In fact, I'd say it would make you a less spiritual and enlightened person if you had to knock down anyone's belief system just to make yours higher. And I'll bet you anything that Barack Obama with Jupiter in Aquarius sees himself as a man. Just like in the movie, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" with Sidney Poitier. His character was John and he said to his dad, "But you think of yourself as a colored man. I think of myself as a man." I'm just crazy about Sidney Poitier and the way he played that character. If I could have any wish come true, it would be to meet Sidney Poitier and feel a nice warm hug from him. There's nothing on the planet that I would wish for more than to meet Sidney Poitier. "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" is one of my favorite movies of all time but then again it speaks so loudly as to my own beliefs. I think his character in the movie had Jupiter in Aquarius too. (winky wink) I also think Barack Obama is proud of his ancestry as he should be and because of his Jupiter in Aquarius I'll bet you anything Barack Obama sees himself as a man but then are still others who see him more as a black man.

Jupiter is a benevolent planet and likes to help others, (see keywords in first paragraph) and we all have a form of benevolence (Jupiter) in our spirit that we should tap into and express. Since Aquarius naturally rules the 11th house of the masses and groups of people, this is how I express my benevolence, to the masses. I created something massive (Jupiter size) and brought it the masses (Aquarius style). I couldn't stop writing this site if I tried. This site is after all over 3,000 pages and loads of it is free. But that's also why I blow a gasket if someone demands more from me or complains about something that I am doing for them for free. Now folks that rarely ever happens but when it does happen I go right into my defensive posture, "Your not entitled to more of me! Instead, I give to you when I want to give to you." That's just my Jupiter in Aquarius waving my arms around if demands are made on my life, my liberty and my pursuit of happiness. The great thing about my Jupiter is it is big and fat in Aquarius (the masses) so giving to the masses is pretty dang easy, which makes my work pretty dang easy. I just Love Jupiter! What's yours?

I encourage you to seek out and really work your Jupiter because it will bring you extra blessings and bring you happiness when you understand what it means for you. Just check your Natal Chart and it will tell you. So PLAY UP it's wonderful qualities. Jupiter wants to be benevolent and give to you but it can't if you don't even see it.
