The amount of feedback I received on last month's newsletter was enormous. Thank you for your support and generous love. I have more to add . . .

October was breast cancer awareness month. The following question was posed on the radio to a leading breast cancer surgeon: Is there more breast cancer today than 30 years ago or is it just that our awareness of it has increased and more proper diagnosis is possible? The answer was emphatic: "YES. There is MORE breast cancer today." The surgeon continued with an explanation that there is something in the environment that we are exposed to that is increasing not only breast cancer, but illness in general. Cancer research is now targeting the DNA code that is triggered with this environmental "pollutant".

My question is, "What if it the pollutant is actually a frequency of energy?"

We know, because of a variety of signals in the air and water, that whales are being beached, their sonar affected and their homing signals interfered with during their migration. The whales are suffering because of frequencies of vibrations introduced into the water from submarines and military testing. The result of this testing and the frequency signals being used has been devastating to the whales. Like humans with increased cancer and other diseases, the whales are ill.

The same type of thing is happening with bees. Cell phone usage and the amount of microwaves in the air are harming them. Their migration patterns and breeding patterns are also being interrupted. And they are ill.

We as humans are also exposed to these enormous amounts of lower frequency wavelengths from microwaves, radios, computers, and cell phones. Our bodies are continuously bombarded with these lower frequency waves traversing through us. It is the lower frequency energies that cause illness within us. We are a high frequency system. When a high frequency system has low frequency intrusions in it, there is dis-ease in the system.

So is our predicament hopeless? Are we doomed to go out as a species on the earth because of cell phones? Heaven forbid.

Shamanically, the answer to health is always the same. The more high frequency energy that you can contain within you and surround yourself with, the healthier you will be. And remember, worry is low frequency so worrying about this is also detrimental to your health.

A proactive approach is what is necessary. Since EVERYTHING is a frequency of vibration, you can be active in your choices to what you decide to expose yourself to, whether it is violent movies, negative news, or processed foods. You can reduce your exposure by choosing differently with just these three things.

You can be active in your choice of the words that you utter during a conversation. You can be active in your choices with your thoughts. You can be active in your choices to meditate or to fill with light, do Reiki self treatments, do journeys and connect with spiritual beings. All of these are choices of exposure to high frequency energy.

Everything is a frequency of vibration. You are a frequency of vibration. If you are thinking thoughts that make you feel bad then stop thinking them. Your body is actually saying to you, warning, warning, warning, a harmful thought is being thought. The body says to you, I am communicating this to you by feeling bad, sad, or mad.

Also do the obvious. Don't consciously expose yourself to lower frequency energies. Keep a cell phone away from your head, use the speaker or use a head set. Don't stand in front of a microwave, or better yet, don't use one.

Can you think of one thing that you can change each day that will clean up your external environment and improve your internal environment (the internal environment being your own energy system)?

Be active in your choices. Read inspirational materials, play uplifting music of higher frequency when sitting at the computer, go for a walk in nature instead of watching the news.

Most of all, you have the choice to smile, inside and out, raising your own frequency and for those around you.
