Sandra Sturtz Hauss
May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand.
May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism.
Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them.
May the teachings of those you admire become part of you, so that you may call upon them.
Remember, those whose lives you have touched and who have touched yours are always a part of you, even if the encounters were less than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter that is more important than its form. May you not become too concerned with material matters, but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day to see beauty and love in the world around you.
Realize that what you feel you lack in one regard you may be more than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present may become one of your strengths in the future. May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by yourself, and not be dependent on another's judgment of your accomplishments.
May you always feel loved.

When I was sick last weekend I picked up some books at the library. The Blue Zones was one of them. This is a fantastic book and was really hard to put down but each evening I'd read about a different "blue zone".
What are blue zones? Dan Buettner identifies through his research four specific areas in our world where they have the highest percentage of centurions. He then goes with his team to each area to meet directly with these centurions and identify what type of lifestyle they live and see if there are any commonalities between the cultures.
You may be curious, what are the four blue zones?
- An American blue zone... yes... even in America!, Loma Linda, California
-Nicoya Costa Rica
What are some of the characteristics of people who live to be 100 and beyond? It's a combination of diet, exercise, community, and family.
What is really interesting after reading the book is to take the vitality compass test. From some basic questions that you answer regarding your lifestyle, the calculator will tell you your calendar age, biological age, and life time expectancy. Then they'll tell you what you can do to increase your life expectancy! A very interesting exercise.
If you are interested in improving your quality of life then this book is a must read!
The sad news is that our society is moving heavily towards a sedentary lifestyle and we are relying on too many fast food restaurants for connivance. It would be interesting in forty years to see where our next blue zones are located. However, you can create your own blue zone and that is very encouraging!

Part of what I try to do on my blog is provide information and resources to people who want to grow spiritually and take good care of their health. There is so much information out there to gather that by providing it to you in chunks you're better able to digest it!
I found a great web site Women to Women, "changing women's health naturally". It is chalked full of valuable information regarding women's health concerns.
Take a minute to check it out and book mark! You'll come back to it for reference... I know I have recently!

We will not go inside
For that is where the witches live,
Where ghosts and goblins hide.
Tonight they have their party,
All the lights are burning bright,
But oh we will not go inside
The haunted house tonight.
The demons there are whirling
And the spirits swirl about.
They sing their songs to Halloween.
"Come join the fun," they shout.
But we do not want to go there
So we run with all our might
And oh we will not go inside

By Roz Savage
Last night I had the opportunity to go into Seattle to hear Roz Savage speak about her book Rowing the Atlantic.
What an inspirational story! Here's a woman who one day sat down and took a look at where here life was headed and decided to do something different. She had the courage to change! I don't want to give away too much of what happens in her journey but I will share that she is the first woman to row competitively across the Atlantic Ocean for 103 days! Can you imagine being out in the ocean all by yourself for 103 days? Roz mentioned that when you are on the ocean that long that your mind creates your reality. I'll bet it does!
Through her book tour Roz wants to inspire others to follow their dreams. "Don't be held back by fears. When you have a reason for doing something you'll figure out the how". She is also very active in environmental issues and is participating in several conferences her thru the end of the year.
Roz actually "tweets" and "blogs" from her boat and is working on rowing across the Pacific Ocean and has already completed two stages! Now wouldn't this be fun to be working and then get a "tweet" from someone that is out rowing in the Pacific! Is that wild or what?
Here is the link to Roz's official website. I hope you'll take a moment to read about her journey in her own words. She is truly a remarkable person and is leaving a wonderful legacy.

Another experience from an Access participant.
"Dear Pat, I am excited to share with you my experiences since I did the ACCESS class last June. When I came to the class, I could not walk without a cane, was in constant and severe pain, had trouble sleeping at night and focusing during the day. I heard you on the Dr. Pat show and my insides made an instant decision to attend. I was scheduled for surgery in a few weeks for total hip replacement. ( I know now that if I had heard of Access nine months earlier, I might not have required surgery.)After doing the techniques a few days, I almost felt worse. I remembered your advice to stay with it, because it could take a few days for the body and brain to receive the oxygen and circulation it needed to renew. It felt like a miracle when I was able to sleep without pain and the limp lessened when I walked. Also, my constant thirst had balanced and I felt hydrated.I did have the surgery, and in just weeks, I returned to almost normal mobility. I required little pain medication and the medical team marveled at my recovery. All went SO well- my heart abounds in gratitude.I have been doing the techniques faithfully and feel more joy each day. I know Access works because on those few days I didn't do the techniques, I felt a negative difference in my mental and emotional state, as well as in my body. So, I just don't forget to do it each morning! I have tried many avenues of healing and love the results I am getting. What a bargain! Blessings BE! Jody."
Pain, structural and postural issues are just a bit of what BodyTalk Access addresses. Your entire system is tuned up and ready to handle what it encounters, or what has been with you for awhile.

My good friend Pat Sullivan is conducting another ACCESS training workshop here in the Seattle area on Saturday September 19th . If you have not made it to one so far now is the time to check it out! Below is the information about the class, contact information and videos.
BodyTalk Access Class
When: Saturday, September 19th, 2009 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: Seattle Healing Arts 6300 9th Ave NE Seattle, WA 98115

Three weeks ago I had a urinary tract infection. I did Access and then I repeated the use of one of the techniques, Body Chemistry. The UTI cleared up that evening. I have since had 2 others tell me of their UTI's that were gone in a day using this method.
The Body Chemistry technique works by making your system aware of the virus/microbe/toxin/fungus. This works on colds, flus, food poisoning, anything that may be harmful or invasionary. It's like having a piece of parsley in your teeth, you don't know it's there until you look in the mirror or someone tells you. Once you see it, you address it. Best of all, you don't have to know what you're dealing with. You do the technique and it does the work and your system mounts the appropriate response. Simple and done. This technique is what started BodyTalk when it addressed Dr. John Veltheim's chronic Epstein Barr. Within 3 days he was free of the virus.
With all the concern about the swine flu, wouldn't you like to know you have something in your toolbox (and your own hands) to take care of it? See more experiences below.
BodyTalk Access is a set of 5 self healing techniques (excerpted from the full BodyTalk System) that can cover up to 60% of what a person or family may encounter in a month; brain optimization, nervous system relaxation, viruses, bacterial infections, pain reduction, injury and trauma healing, learning disorders, and more... It's simple to learn and the results can be astounding. You leave this fun and fast paced class with a healthcare package in your hands.

See this link to a 12 minute video where John Veltheim, the founder, explains the philosophy behind Access and teaches our most valuable technique, so you can do this on yourself and others now. Pass it on, we'd love to have everyone doing the Cortices technique. http://bodytalksystem.com/learn/access/cortices.cfm

"I talked my Mom through (over the telephone) the Cortices technique I saw on the video you sent. She was having a seizure which was working its way up her body and it stopped midstream and they have not returned." Ellen from Pat's Access class in Winthrop, WA 6/21/09
“... Just had to tell you this. I am out babysitting a friend’s two kids. They told me that the two-year old will still be awake at 9.30! I did not think so!!!!! As soon as his parents left I tapped out his Cortices and he was asleep in four minutes. WOW! ...Love JoB.”
From my class in July with an extended family of 12: One of the kids cut themselves with a kitchen knife the next day, her brother did Access on her and the bleeding stopped immediately. They were thrilled to have their own 'story'. The day of the class, all I heard was 'too many stories' from the kids. I think they did just Cortices.
I clipped my doggie's nail too short and had a gusher. Halfway through Cortices, the bleeding stopped. Pat S
I had a real Fast Aid experience about a week a half ago. I was slicing limes with a knife that I had just sharpened, The knife slipped off the lime, and buried itself deeply into my fingernail. Ouch. I tend to bleed a lot when I am cut, and it started gushing. Then I thought – Great! a good opportunity to try out Fast Aid!

As it slowly moved along the conveyor belt to the shredder, it became acquainted and struck up a conversation with a fifty-dollar bill that was meeting the same fate.
The fifty began reminiscing about its travels all over the country. Life has been good," the fifty exclaimed. "Why, I've been to Las Vegas, the finest restaurants in New York, political fund raisers, and just returned from a cruise on the Caribbean."
Gee," said the one-dollar bill, "you're fortunate to have been able to visit all those places."So where all have you been in your lifetime, my little friend," says the fifty?"
"Well, I've been to ..the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Lutheran Church, the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church, the Assembly of God Church, the Brethren Church, the Quaker Church, the Pentecostal Church, the Charismatic Church, the Mennonite Church, the Church of Christ..."
"Excuse me," says the fifty, "but what's a Church"?

HarMoney Card - Prosperity #3
I SEE MYSELF IN A NEW LIGHT
Just because your life has been a certain way in the past doesn't mean it must be the same in the future. The future can be different. You can make it different. You can change.
Questions to ask:
What are my priorities?
What are my short and long term goals? Am I going to let time slip by and not accomplish those things that are important to me?
How do I make the things that I am passionate about a priority?
Have I written things down?
Have I set dates?
Who is holding me accountable?

A pleasant surprise in my mail box upon my return from Carmel. A package containing the 2009 Sandra James Songwriting Contest CD. The CD comprises of the eight songwriting finalists and more of Sandra's music for everyone to enjoy.
For those of you that are not familiar, the Sandra James Music Foundation is a non profit organization who is committed to supporting the causes that were important to Sandra when she was alive: positive changes involving children, music, peace, and the protection of the environment.
I am always thrilled to be involved with the foundation and am happy to make my contributions since Sandra was a dear childhood friend and I have met an amazing friend Rhonda while working on these projects!
Rhonda and I will be sharing the CD's and giving them out at the 2009 Sister's Folk Life Festival in Sisters, Oregon in September.
However, we are more than willing to share now. If you would like your own CD and hear these amazing messages from the featured artists please send me an email and I'd be happy to send you a CD, courtesy of the foundation!
