There’s nothing like experience to teach.

Note: Long.

While earning my doctorate I took a class in vibrational medicine, the text book written by Dr. Gerber, grad of Wayne State School of Medicine.  Though I found it interesting and much of it backed up what the British ENT surgeon who began my education in holistic medicine taught me, I didn’t think much past using Bach flower remedies and homeopathy.

As I write in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity, while my body was inundated with heavy metals and other toxins I was exposed to while living in the SF Bay area, vibrational medicines such as those mentioned above did not work.  It wasn’t until I moved away from geologic EMFs and began early stages of nutritional rebalancing that they were again effective.

15 Years Later

I was working my way through the later stages of EMF Sensitivity’s nutritional cure when the somewhat esoteric nature of vibrational frequencies as medicine came to play, via another esoteric EMF.


Tired of champagne which was a critical part of recovering from heavy metal poisoning, I switched for a time to red wine.

Pinot noir.

As I write in Destination Unknown: Explorations of the Paranormal, I was often joined while sitting on the front deck steps by the ghosts of former rock guitarists who were hanging out with us.

ET invited one who invited one and the next thing I knew I had what Aaron calls “The Crew.”

ET pointed to the wine glass and said, “You gotta be careful with drinking red wine.  It will draw lower spirits to you.”

Here’s the thing.  I’m not a big believer in that kind of talk.

Or thinking.  

It may seem to some like splitting hairs but as I knew he was talking about vibrations and the law of attraction, I wasn’t convinced.  As fate would have it, it caused me to retain calcium which is one of the things I was working so hard to detox from, so I had to quit and go back to champagne.

Calcium absorption is just one of the many benefits of champagne – and tequila – in recovering from calcium toxicity.*IV


Well on my way to what I consider a normal life and tired of only drinking champagne, I again switched to red wine.

I did not drink champagne with every meal, just dinner. I drank espresso and water but no juice and no soda.

The wine was pinot noir.

Naturally, ET’s warning circled through the pia mater – briefly.  

I just wasn’t cool with the words “lower spirits.”

By March, 2022 I was trying to pick my life up from the disastrous chaos it careened into.  The worst part?  I had no idea what the hell hit me!  I eventually traced it back to an October 2021 phone call.

Someone dumping a sh*tload of drama – none of which was mine – so “they” didn’t have to deal with it.

Badly stressed, I skipped the champagne and stuck with the red. It isn’t that it led to bad behavior. It drew lower spirits!

The kind wearing the fancy skin and bones costume!

Being around the lower energies in human form was the equivlanet to sticking my finger in a light socket.

Awful and traumatic.**

Believing this information absolutely critical to include in Under Siege: Tools and Strategies for Dealing with EMF Sensitivity, I nonetheless struggled with how to explain.

Shellshocked from how badly I was harmed by those lower energies, I was too vulnerable to utter the words, truth though they were.

I couldn’t even bring myself to talk with Aaron about it.

Every time I even thought about it I got sick to my stomach.

Autumn 2022.

Months of introspection and reflection led me to consider trying a different red wine.

To see what happened when I did, what might be different.

Some might think me glutton for punishment but seriously, how else was I going to learn whether it was all red wines or just that one? I decided on one I used to drink long ago.


The results were, to say the least, interesting.  If you can believe, from day one, the merlot drew energy from the years during which I regularly drank merlot!  

I hadn’t had merlot in years, having switched to pinot noir then chianti then malbec then back to pinot.  Cabs, unfortunately, give me nasty headaches.

I remember thinking it interesting I was suddenly in touch with someone from when I drank merlot more frequently in one week than in the previous five years.*V

  Another fun one?  

Related to a different vibrational frequency.

I was listening to music from that era!

I’m not talking about listening to the 80s which I love to listen to when I’m not listening to heavy metal. I’m talking about artists and albums I listened to at a specific point in time; one that syncs with years when I drank merlot in social settings.

Note:  This was more or less before Aaron who turned me on to craft beers.

While I didn’t mind taking a trip down music memory lane, there was a problem. I associate those tunes with some of the most stressful times of my life.  

Time. Another vibrational bit of joy.

By the third day spent listening to the music I knew something needed to be done.

The music was reminding me of people and events I really would rather not think about.

Not So Fast.

At the same time I was getting amazing health benefits from the merlot.  

Definitely helping with the gum health though the b12 supplement is also contributing to that big time.

Deciding it was worth researching ways to compensate for the frequency – tune the dial – I channeled some of the health benefits to not only be front and center but to attract other positive frequencies.

Let the Mind Do the Walking

One of the benefits of the merlot was that my mind was not nearly as racy.

I am a big-time mental multitasker so this was a nice “bennie.”

I had more energy so I began to walk and in walking found solutions to a number of issues that had been outstanding for months, including what the hell happened to crash my ship on the proverbial rocks!

I Know That Face!

I was able to – after literally decades – recoup parts of myself pushed to the wayside in the name of survival.

From other people’s drama if not shenanigans.

Caveat Emptor!

I am not so naive as to think that in merlot I have the ultimate answer.  The body’s chemistry is an ever changing beautiful thing that needs to be acknowledged and dealt with.  At the same time I am taking advantage of the time I have to reset the parts of me that need it and tune out ambient noise that would interfere with my life’s journey.

Would I have been able to do the same with pinot noir?  No. It’s a different and apparently lower frequency.

For me at least.

I’ll leave readers with a great video example of how alcohol can bring the past to life as vividly as if it were happening at that moment.


**I’m still suffering PTSD from the human energies that left destruction in their wake.

*IV I never took calcium supplements and outgrew drinking milk around the age of 14. The toxicity came from a combination of hard water and location specific factors.

*V After I posted this a friend I hadn’t spoken to in years who has ties to that same era reached out to me. It was wonderful talking with him, which showed me not all associations are one way or another.


Note:  Cross posted on

Listening to Dio’s Holy Diver and chipping away at the list on my whiteboard.  

A list that includes 2 software apps.

EMF App Redesign

Though well -intentioned, the original EMF App needs an overhaul.

It will be more concise and to the point and will include tools and strategies for all 4 pillars of EMF Sensitivity.

  • Geologic
  • Atmospheric
  • Technologic
  • Esoteric


Ahhh, the joys of the paranormal!

I am creating a new app that will be focused on the often entertaining 4th pillar of EMF Sensitivity.

This app will be filled with information that will appeal to those interested in and/or living with the paranormal.

Those who like ghost hunting will find plenty of helpful information here.

Here’s a glimpse of the type of information that will be available in the Psi App.

I did not put this particular tidbit in the Under Siege book, nor has it appeared elsewhere.

Ghostly Introductions.

Er, interactions.

I’ve written fairly extensively on my experience with ghosts, some of whom are family members, others former rock musicians.

Especially guitarists.

In Under Siege I wrote how one I nicknamed Rooster came up with a way to make it so these energies do not drain my adrenals.  

The other musicians went through the steps as did any newcomers, regardless of how long they stayed.

ET did not have to.  

I’m guessing it’s because of this tidbit I’m about to share.

The Aura is a Database

I write in Destinaton Unknown: Explorations of the Paranormal how my first time acting as a psychic medium came in April 2011.

The 7th.

We’d stopped for dinner at Ruby Tuesdays in Utah on our way back to Colorado.

I’d met ET two days prior.

He bumped the bed in our hotel room at the Hard Rock in Vegas to wake me up so we could “talk.”

As I write in Destination Unknown, he asked permission to go with us back to Colorado.

Psi Avalanche!

The experience was a bit overwhelming because the moment Aaron asked a question ET began answering at a speed that was formidable to decipher.

Actually, ET could read him so he began answering before Aaron even finished the question.

At one point I held up my hands to both of them and asked ET to slow down so I could process the answers.  

We went on like this for some time when all of a sudden I had an answer in its entirety without having to process it.

Basically allow my conscious beta mind to absorb the energetic – alpha -answer.

It was as if ET just “dropped”what he wanted me to know into my mind.

It was different then when a ghost or other celestial entity projects an image. I just suddenly knew without having to take time to process. More efficient and much less stressful.

It was ET who figured out to do this and from that moment on my interactions with him which were nacent at that point went much smoother.

I believe this is why ET didn’t have to do the exercise outlined by Rooster.  My adrenal system did not consider him a threat.


Not long after his death, I was talking to a newcomer who’d appeared in my home.

In my office which at that time was a diamagnetic paradise, something I cover in Under Siege.

I recognized him but was relatively unfamiliar with his music.  Because of this I asked if he understood “the rules” set in place for new ghosts.  

None of my deceased relatives who’ve stopped by have pricked the “fight or flee” system, likely beause I knew them.

Rather than comply, he held out his ghostly hand.

And smiled.

He asked if he could shake my hand.

Very politely.

I’ve had ghosts touch me before. The results have been mixed.

If I don’t know them I tend to feel it as a zing like getting an electric shock.

Keeping my eyes on his I reached out my hand.  To my surprise

  • I only felt a bit of static electricity sensation

I wondered if it was because of how far I’d come in dealing with my EMF Sensitivity

  • I witnessed my life in images as it transferred from me to him.

What makes this interesting is there is now evidence our life really does flash before our eyes at times.

Now the hmmm part.

After watching him react physically and rather traumatically

I’ve had a rough life and he absorbed not only the images but the energy of it.

I realized – and confirmed with him – that the auric field – which he’d tapped into – is a type of cosmic database that contains our life story.

I don’t think either of us was prepared for the pain it caused him to energetically “live” the more painful moments of my life.

I asked what motivated him to try such a stunt.  He explained that yes, he was aware of “the rules” set by Rooster but wanted to try a different way.

Lesson Learned

What I deducted based on the two auric interactions experienced years apart is that our auric fields are a database into which information can be added and/or withdrawn via energetic transfer.

Just Takin’ Yer Measure, Missy

It would explain why ghosts seem to feel the need to touch me.

There is more to study but I felt this worth sharing.

As for my research buddy, he was significantly affected.  

He gave me an apologetic smile and told me “I need to go.”

I have not seen him since though something tells me at some point in the future I will.

He seemed, like so many of the others who have crossed my path, to love learning as much as I do.

News on the release of the apps will be forthcoming.

Stay tuned!


In my early – mid 20s I dated a guy who was big into meditation.  When stress hit my life like a tsunami he suggested I give it a try. Unfortunately, I could never manage to quiet what various meditation teachers refer to as the monkey mind.

All the chatter that rears its head when you try to experience a moment of stillness.

I read up on and researched various techniques but nothing ever worked consistently.

That monkey mind never stopped chattering away.

He eventually suggested I just give up since it was frustrating me to no end.  Though disappointed I agreed it was the path of least resistence.

I was stressing myself out about it which more or less defeats the purpose of meditating to relax.

I did have a bit of success in what I call walking meditation but it is kind of cheating since I did not quiet my mind during those winter walks.

I used the time walking those winter nights to sift through my life and see where changes needed to be made.

A break-thru came when I bought Dr. Taub’s Seven Steps to Self-Healing Pack.

I’d never heard of guided meditation but listening to those tapes showed me that even those with chatty minds can meditate.

Silva Icing.

In 2000 I took the Silva Basic Lecture Series from a lovely woman in Akron, OH.

Aaron, who used to listen to the Dr. Taub tapes alongside me at night agreed to go with me.

For years I did a kluged version of guided meditation based on imagery from the tapes as well as whatever I produced on my mental screen during Silva.

Creative Visualization – Not

Starting in 2017 I switched from the scripted meditation I had been using for years to reviewing my novels before bed.  

I had become proficient in creating vivid images while picturing characters, locations, scenes, so it seemed like a good idea.

For the next several years I spent evenings reviewing scenes from various books in my mind and though it generally helped me fall asleep it hid a problem.

It wasn’t having the same beneficial effects as guided meditation!

This might have gone on indefinitely were it not for a series of emails between a friend in Florida and myself.  Rereading my words a few days after I sent them made me see I needed some serious change in my life.

I wrote about this in the Tune the Dial post.

To marry action to intention I began doing my old meditation routine in place of general mental movies.  Immediately, my life began to change.

Especially my health which needed tweaking.

My energy levels went up within days and that led to reguarly engaging in exercise which led to more energy which led to…

You get the idea.

In addition to physical benefits the universe began putting in a helping hand in the form of books coming into my possession at the right time.

I think it was seeing I was serious about improving my life – not just talking about it.

I’ll admit it was tough to get back into the routine of guided meditation, not because I had trouble quitting the review of novel plots before bed but because I was so rusty at the routine I’d done for years.

Persistance Pays Off.

Knowing it would all fall into place if I kept at it I kept at it.

And life continued to improve.

The plan is to keep up routines that help me achieve various health and well-being goals.

Routines that begin with the nightly guided meditation, one that includes prayers of thanksgiving.

The Take-Away?

I learned the hard way not all mental movies achieve a state of relaxation and that guided meditation is as beneficial as TM.

Especially for those of us with chattier minds.

Note:  That Monkey Mind

I long ago earned the distinction of always thinking but there was, I now realize, something else going on; something that interfered with my ability to still my chatty multi-tasking mind.

Birth Control Pills and Copper

Birth control pills have been linked to a buildup of copper.  Excess copper can cause chatty racy mind.

Taking zinc and potassium can help but until and unless there is nutritional balance, it may continue to be a challenge to quiet the mind.

I’m sure other medications can have this as a side effect.


Note: Long

Oh how I love a mystery.  Especially a mystery that helps enrich my understanding of the universe.

I quit worrying about enriching my understanding of my place in that universe.  Too woo-woo for me.

For awhile I’ve been challenged by a very strange and difficult to quantify

Uh oh!  Esoteric EMFs!

I don’t even know if I want to call it a problem since it’s tied to my psi.

Which I prefer to have.

Rather than waiting and concluding – since it would take over a year – and rather than reporting bit by bit since it would be misleading, I decided to encapsulate it here as an example of what my EMF life is like.

EMF Aware.

In Under Siege: Tool;s and Strategies for Dealing with the Pillars of EMF Sensitivity, I explain there is a difference between EMF Sensitivity and EMF Awareness.  The short definition is that while you are sickened by Sensitivity you are not sickened by Awareness even as you are in touch with various EMFs.

  • Geologic

Ultra-low and very low EM frequencies emitted by fault lines, fissures, and manmade openings associated with oil and gas exploration.

  • Atmospheric

Migraines and other symptoms associated with low-pressure systems.

  • Technologic

EM frequencies that bleed from various appliances and other technology, including and especially wireless frequencies.

  • Esoteric

Ghosts and other so-called supernatural and/or paranormal phenomenon that affect our adrenals – which in turn affect our physiological systems.

Without Further Ado…

Starting at the end of June a year ago – just after Pandemic isolate-at-home was lifted, I began periodically and randomly experiencing a dizzy spell immediately prior to a premonition.

Very random and never while behind the wheel.

It was brief but miserable.

Over the next weeks without warning I had this experience.

Always prior to a premonition that was a feeling/knowing type.

I determined it was related to Vitamin D supplements and the sauvignon blanc I switched to in the summer months.

No proof – just a feeling.

Sure enough, quitting the D – which wasn’t that much since I take minimum to get results – and dropping anything but champagne, which, as I write in Ignoring the Rules: An Intriguing Approach to  Resolving Calcium Toxicity, was key to recovering from heavy metal ipisoning.

Critical actually as it helped me rebuild my nutrition stores.

Everything resolved so I put it behind me.  For a year.

The Longest Day

To my consternation this year, approximately two weeks after school let out, the damn thing came around.

Like the earth around the sun.

Once again I tied it to D and Sauv Blanc.

I took the D throughout the year and though I had not changed my habit – wasn’t going outside more often and living in PNW doesn’t guarantee sun – yet observed it was somehow tied to the same D I’d been taking throughout the year with no problem.

There’s a Paranormal Catch

Of course.  I mean this is my life right?  My Psi Life!

I suffered throughout the summer.

With a Twist.

For fun picture the scene with Bronson Pinchot in Beverly Hills Cop.

Through the course of the summer the dizzy spells became more intense.

As did the premonitions.

In addition to the dizzy feeling I felt a warmth in my stomach.

They continued to be random and always preceded the premonition.


I began to see images of the future in place of feelings and the dizzy spell was replaced over the course of the summer by only experiencing warmth in my stomach.

Which in my case translated to nausea.

Just before they ended last week the feelings were so bad I thought I was going to throw up and the premonitions were movies.

I consistently saw the future before it happened.

The premonitions were nothing dire and they were more specific to my life than the world at large.

The warmth in my stomach that preceded them was far worse to experience.

The D drag.

It was quite the conundrum because I get benefit from Supplemental D.

I was taking 2K/day – went to 1K every other day.

I gave up on the Sauv Blanc since that seemed to make having the damn experience a guarantee.

But – was it the D?  The wine?  Both combined?  Something else?

It was seasonal after all.

Don’t Forget GMFs!

Just to add to all the fun we had a pretty decent size shake, rattle, and roll.

Small by USGS standards but the house had a good middle-of-the-night shake.

For the next several hours (over 24 – 2 nights’ sleep lost) I kept waking up before each and every aftershock.

Total drag.

I also felt seasick for 18 hours after.

Bummer, especially because I’m not one to suffer motion sickness.


As I wrote in Under Siege, the paranormal colors my life.

With plenty of interesting if friendly ghosts.

I was able to rule that out as the issue.

No Tech Here!

I conducted repeated and intense testing of a variety of tech and telecom sources.  Every single test came up negative!

I have not had sensitivity to Tech EMFs since May 2016.

So what the hell is going on?  

Or should I say was…?


I know researchers with IRVA studied the effect of solar energies on Psi but other than loving sunny days I’ve not really noticed a negative effect on my health related to the seasons.

I do not have SADD – never did.

In point of fact I do not believe the need for Vitamin D has anything to do with where I moved.  I am so confident in this that I did research and – as I thought – confirmed Vitamin D deficiency exists in places that have plenty of sun throughout the year.

When I have spare cycles I’m going to try to figure out the root cause of that – and find a nutritional fix that is better than “eat foods enriched with Vitamin Dsince it isn’t that simple.

They stopped at the end of summer last year and didn’t resume until 2 weeks after school let out this year.

Summer or school? Both? Neither?

Factor X

Not convinced it was solar energy related, I nonetheless held back on conclusions and continued to try various tweaks throughout July and August to see what made it better, what made it worse.

Including switching brands of vitamin D and the addition of Vitamin B12 which stops the phenomenon in its tracks, introducing yet another piece of the puzzle.

And just to add to the mystery, beginning 1 1/2 weeks before school resumed I started to feel significantly better.

The episodes dramatically dropped off.

I was winding down the D to see the impact and continued the B12.

And had the occasional had white wine as part of the test.

No dizzy.

Then a dizzy that seemingly had nothing to do with the wine – or anything else – but then two more days without one.

And beginning the Sunday before school started – nothing.

Gone for Good?

I could wait another year to see if it happens again but that would be naive because it assumes it’s related to a season.

When it could have to do with the fact school let out and there was some sort of change that took two weeks to catch up with me.

Not In The Home Or The Routine

Naturally, when it started up again this year at the same time, I looked first at what I might be doing differently. Other than switching to white wine I was doing nothing differently.

Nor was anyone else in the house.

The Wine Silly!

I switched from sauv blanc to chardonnay and noticed no dizzy spells.

However, other factors later ruled out sauv blanc as the ultimate/only culprit.

Inside Outside?

I ruled out changes in my family associated with summer.

No summer blues in this house!

I live around a bunch of retirees with grown kids so they aren’t doing anything differently because of school letting out.

Tourist Hell

It’s incredible how some people behave when they are vacationing in a location that is home for people.

I once watched a bus full of tourists get out in Queen Anne and start snapping photos of houses that had families living in them as if they were the Statue of David in Florence.

I wrote in Under Siege how I am affected by the energy of humans and since I’ve lived in areas that draw tourists for the last 22 years there is an argument for this energy to have an impact.

Like I said, Factor X.

It’s evident I’m dealing with a variety of factors and therefore need more data before coming to any conclusions.

At least I’m not suffering the damn dizzy spells anymore.

There’s more to it but this is a taste of what it’s like to be Psi and EMF Aware.

As Church Lady said, “Isn’t that special?”

Be well and stay tuned!

More to come at some point.

Next summer?

Perish the thought!

Post Note: I forgot to mention if I take a potassium supplement – which was necessary because the Vitamin D supplement pushed my levels down – I am guaranteed to have the episode. So – no potassium supplement for me.

I’ve written I have a love/hate relationship with potassium. It’s the EMF mineral big time but if you can’t take supplements – which I haven’t been able to – and you are sensitive to potassium rich foods which I was – life is fun. Not!


Note: This post will be updated in the days and weeks to come.

It’s been both relief and annoyance to conclude oddities experienced recently are the result of GMFs.  

I was pretty certain it wasn’t technology related EMFs but I didn’t rule it out.  I tested it!


I understand not everyone has the same experience and I do understand sensitivity to technology – and network technology in particular.  

And how miserable it is when it’s happening.


Years of research as well as results from curing the condition allow me to state with confidence

Blaming cell towers – regardless of the network protocol they ferry – is like blaming the oak tree because you are allergic.

Even as I was relatively confident – based on years’ long intense research – that 5G wasn’t the culprit of the new weird symptoms I still had to test it.  

When it comes to EMF Sensitivity, I take nothing for granted.  Ever.

EMF Sensitivity is devastating 

I never want to go through anything like that again!

Personal experience fueled the EMF Sensitivity books I’ve written, as well as continued research.  

All independently done and self-financed.

It’s also what is driving this next step.

A holistic healer, I am passionate about helping others.

Testing! Testing!

As expected and thank God I was able to rule out 5G as the culprit which left me with the infamous quote by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

“Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”

Truth yes but bitter just the same.

Fault Lines.


For those interested in my wild relationship with the earth’s geology, including my ability to sense earthquakes before they happen I suggest the following

Thanks to hard work I’ve made incredible strides in addressing debilitating physical symptoms when exposed to the ultra-low and very low EM frequencies emitted via openings in the earth.

Not Just Faultines!

As I’ve written, and lived, manmade openings such as those associated with oil and gas exploration also enable these frequencies to get above the earth’s surface where they impact people sensitive to them.

As do openings such as fissures created by land subsidence.

It is because of progress I wasn’t looking at GMFs as being responsible for some really odd symptoms.

I will get to those in a moment.

At the same time I did not rule it out.  There were just a few problems.

I live on soil over rock.

I do not live on a fault.

I have not, before recently, had anything close to what was going on.  To add complexity – story of my EMF Sensitivity life – I’d never had these particular symptoms before.

Of course.

In Progress.

The situation is evolving for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is years of living with this crap have made it so I can turn on a dime when it comes to testing various options.


After a bit of contemplation regarding how to go forward with [read share] this evolving situation and any breakthru’s associated with it

  • I do not want to go back to the energy draining [posting on] situation I got myself into before
  • I do not want to write an entire book for one situation

I am going to update this particular entry.

I do not want to send out an alert every time I learn something new so I will simply edit this post, being sure to put a date on an entry so readers and visitors will know it’s more or less the latest.

With that in mind I will start by explaining the weird symptoms and any steps taken to resolve.


  • Weird dizzy feeling that precluded a premonition.

Explanation for the relationship will be forthcoming.

  • Nausea and warmth in my spine.

Associated with premonitions but again, explanations will be forthcoming.

  • Intense knowing something outside of my biochemistry was setting something off.

See above – forthcoming.

On That Note.

Sensing something is off.

When first sickened after relcoating to the SF Bay Area? Total denial from others.

I lost count of the times someone close to me tried to tell me nothing was wrong.  

To make matters worse, every medical test came back normal, suggesting nothing was wrong.

I knew something was wrong!

Stick To Your Guns!

When it comes to how you feel – you know best.

Do not let anyone talk you out of EMF Sensitivity. It’s real and it’s miserable!

It’s also treatable and curable.

I can only suggest that if you feel it in your bones something is off you need to follow it down til you figure it out.

Peanut Gallery comments, no matter how well-intentioned, need to be brushed aside!

I’m not a hypochondriac and I despise Disease Du Jour mentality.  If it’s on The World of EMF?  It’s real.

As are the solutions I’ve discovered.

Without Further Ado

9/09/22:  Having determined annoying symptoms have roots in geologic frequencies I will narrow my focus to the following observations

Which are working beautifully, thank God.

  • Vitamin B12 appears to stabilize the situation by eliminating the physical symptom of dizzy spell prior to premonition.

Which begs the question of whether GMFs induce premonitions, a theory long held by Michael Persinger.

  • Dimagnetic materials finish off remaining GMF symptoms.

This is new and requires I update Under Siege: Tools and Strategies to Deal with the Pillars of EMF Sensitivity.

Please note that this is supplemental.  The heavy lifting curing my EMF Sensitivity happened years ago via heavy metal/toxin/environmental poison detoxification and nutritional balancing over a period of 2 1/2 years.


As I was publishing Under Siege:  Tools and Strategies for Dealing with the Pillars of EMF Sensitivity I considered how my sensitivity to GMFs has morphed from being sickened in the hours and days before a quake and feeling/sensing death every time I was near a fault line to a bit of unease around a fault line and no illness prior to quakes.

Thanks to the focus on detoxifying the heavy metals, especially calcium which is not just a mineral and electrolyte but a metal.

I also pondered my relationship to quakes in general.  I could still sense them before they happened, though after relocating to the Pacific Northwest and going through the nutritional balancing, the nature of that sensing changed dramatically.

The ringing I got in my ear prior to a quake switched from left ear to right.  The distance from the epicenter increased but time before it hit decreased.

I wrote in the section on GMFs that if the quake hits at night I wake out of a sound sleep knowing it is iminent.  However, as I typed that into the book I considered that hadn’t happened in years. 

I Still Got It.

Shortly after 1 this morning I woke out of a sound sleep and while I did not have a conscious thought we were about to have an earthquake, I did something rather interesting.  I moved a candle on the nightstand further from the edge thinking “That way it won’t fall off in an earthquake.”


For several seconds I stared bleary-eyed at the candle thinking “Earthquake?  Did I really just do that?”

It made no sense to me.

I lay down and began the Silva countdown that kicks off my meditation/relax routine.

I wanted to get back to sleep but my mind was racy for some reason though not on any particular subject.

Within seconds the house and the bed began to shake in a scissor-type motion.


Obviously, my sensitivity to impending quakes is spot on though it has changed a bit.

I woke up less than a minute before it hit and unconsciously knew what was about to happen but it wasn’t like in the past where I came straight awake and said “We’re having a quake” seconds before it hit.  Small change but a change nonetheless.

Vitamin B12.

I wrote recently that due to taking my foot off the nutritional gas pedal I felt mild to moderate symptoms around a fixture with a CFL bulb in it.  By chance I discovered that taking Vitamin B12 drops helped me rebalance the nutrition more quickly.  Specifically, it seemed to offset the potassium deficiency supplemental Vitamin D was causing.

It’s one of those caught between a rock and a hard place.  I need the D but it depletes potassium which is the EMF Sensitivity mineral/electrolyte. 

 It’s critical to maintain electrolyte balance if you wish to be free of EMF Sensitivity.

I’m still gathering data about B12’s impact and in light of the earthquake need to give my body time to reset.

I’m still kind of nauseated and though they are small, my ear starts ringing when we are about to have an aftershock.

I will be most curious how taking a dose of B12 may help accelerate the reset.

I need to take on a full stomach and I’m not a breakfast person so I’ll be updating this post later, after lunch.

Stay tuned.

Note: I’m not sure it is related but several hours earlier the neighbor’s dog who rarely – and I mean rarely – barks – was barking like crazy for the longest time.

So much that I was about to go check on my neighbors – as they are older – when the barking stopped.

My guess is the P-waves were hurting his ears.

Update One: Lunch did not help but B12 dose did – somewhat. I added a unique remedy I mention in the book Under Siege and it appears to have completely eliminated the rest which unfortunately, at this point, brings more questions than answers. I will be updating in the future.


Finally getting around to another piece dealing with manifesting.

I’ve got a lot of writing andirons in the fire these days.

It has to do with manifesting by proxy.

You get to enjoy something but you don’t have to live it.

Let me explain…

Especially since prevailing theory is you have to work for something.

A theory that, a Midwesterner by birth, I am more than familiar with.

It all started with the phrase Wouldn’t It Be Cool…?

Come on, you can’t be that surprised.

However, there is a bit of a twist.  

I didn’t actually want what I considered would be cool.

The Scene

I’m 7 and watching Jacques Cousteau on some docu-show on TV.  I was actually bored until my dad pointed out that the people he was working with were raising their kids not in a traditional sense like I was living but on the ocean.

“You mean that boat is their home?”

That boat was a gorgeous sailing yacht.

“But what about school?”

That led to an in-depth discussion about homeschooling and what living a nontraditional life can teach.


No boring school?  No nuns?  No stinky classroom that was ungodly hot in the late spring/early summer?  Cool!

Where do I sign up?

I can see why my dad was good in sales.  He has a way of presenting a vision that really draws you in.  However, he didn’t like to deal with the devil.  

You  know – the details?

Knowing this I wasn’t too keen on his version of how we’d make it work.  

Living on a rusted out abandoned oil tanker in the Louisiana bayou doesn’t compare with what I saw on TV.

My vision was – living space wise – a bit more traditional.

My dad subscribed to Yachting magazine for years and I would lay on my stomach in the living room listening to Rubber Soul or Emerson Lake and Palmer Works I and flipping through the pages.

I also frequently listened to Queen’s Night at the Opera.

I was fascinated by the images in the magazines.

I loved the creative utilization of space – even as I was confused.

“Where do they put the toys?”

My dad explained – by way of answer – the dramatic differences in lifestyle between someone living in a post World War II tract home in a Detroit blue-collar neighborhood and someone following a dream by living it.

He pointed out things I believed sacrifices – no room for toys – were not considered such by those living the dream.

That night I stared up in the dark and thought about the kind of people who raised their kids living on the sea with a boat for a home.  The more I thought about it the more I decided it was cool.

Very cool.

They weren’t afraid to do what it took to live their dream.

I decided such people were brave.

I admired them for not worrying about what the neighbors thought about what they were doing since it was different.

Something I heard endlessly at school, in the community, and in my family.  

That circled back to courage because it takes courage to go against the grain.

Think Jonathon Livingston Seagull, a story my dad used to read to me.

Though I loved the idea of traveling the world and I didn’t mind going against the grain, I didn’t want to live on the ocean.  That didn’t stop me from watching documentaries or reading sailing and yachting magazines or befriending people who owned boats.

We had a Criss-Craft for awhile and used to take it out regularly on various Michigan lakes, fishing and water skiing.

Fast Forward

I’ve done my share of traveling – and boating.

Have a few friends who own sailboats.

Wouldn’t It Be Cool – By Proxy

Not only do I have friends who own various boats including sailboats, I know some who live on their boats.

One couple I know lives part of the year on a houseboat up in Alaska tagging ocean critters for research and conservation purposes.

Most incredible is that I know a family living the Jacques Cousteau way.

They make their living a little differently but they are living their dream in the way I always thought would be cool.

Even as I didn’t want it for myself.

When I first met them I felt an immediate rapport.  So many of our views about living a nontraditional lifestyle were in sync.

I like to say we did on land what they do on the ocean.

I told them I felt as if in meeting them I’d met celebrities from a childhood dream.

They are the most wonderful upbeat people living a wonderful dream.

A dream they built together.

Tune the Dial

I’ve mentioned the first line on my white board is Tune the Dial to remind me to start my day thinking about something or someone positive.  I also have a little drawing of a sailboat as a symbol of this family who followed their dream.

A dream more than a few people thought they were nuts for pursuing.

Thinking of them puts a smile on my face because thinking of them is thinking of what I admire.

Following their hearts and living their dream courageously.

They are the perfect inspiration but more, they are a manifestation from my youth.

One I can enjoy even though I didn’t do the work – living on the water.

Now isn’t that cool?


Finally getting around to a post about an aspect of Visualization for manifesting an outcome.  I don’t know that it was what I planned to do this morning but after an email I got last night I decided to go ahead with it.

I do want mention the prayer success rate I mention from Grace Cathedral – 100% – was measured by success in prayers I said not only for myself but for others.

People who were trying to deal with/recover from an illness or trying to conceive, looking for a house, a job, etc. 

When I do meditation/prayer I do say things for myself but more often than not I’m praying for someone else.

Which leads to…

A friend informed me several weeks back she was facing a health challenge.  I replied with a promise to do Silva healing techniques and then explained what it was about and encouraged her to take the BLS so she, too, could learn the techniques and have others work on her case.

I also gave her the website to put her info in so others could work on her case.

I have my own version of healing that like my meditation/prayer style is a kluge of various techniques I’ve learned or absorbed throughout my life.  I do, however, frequently integrate the Mirror of the Mind technique when doing a healing.

I’ve had incredible luck with it for healing.

The technique involves visualizing the problem in great detail then sliding a frame over – in the mind’s eye – and visualizing the solution whereafter you only visualize the solution.  Since I do a kluge, rather than visualizing my friend and the specific image of an outcome, I visualized an email in which she communicated a very specific sentence.  Last night I got that email.

Two months or so after I began working her case.

This ties to the original post idea which is why I led with it as an example.  Now, I’ll elaborate.

I’ve written of having luck with Shakti Gawain’s Creative Visualization Workbook.

 Within it there are a number of techniques to try when trying to manifest an outcome.

One of the more successful techniques I’ve used is the Ideal Scene technique in which you describe your ideal scene/outcome as if it’s already happened in detail.

Though not too much detail.

ie., If you want a house, describe the neighborhood and the number of rooms, etc but don’t choose a specific address because the house may belong to someone else or is meant to belong to someone else.  Same with a relationship. Describe what you want in a relationship rather than a specific person as they may belong to someone else or are meant to belong to someone else. Same with a job.

The universe will have something ideal for you.

As I was considering how often I’ve had success with this technique I recalled a fellow Silva student who had difficulty visualizing.  No matter how many helpful suggestsions he got he just couldn’t bring to mind an image.  Knowing there are others out there with such a challenge I thought to share an alternate approach.


In my recent situation I visualized the email.

A bit of imagery involved but most people have received an email so I think it’s easier to imagine getting an email with specific information/news than creating a more complex image from scratch.

I imagined in my white framed mirror getting an email from my friend in which she wrote a very specific sentence to do with a test result she would be getting.

I also did other healing techniques for her.

Yesterday I got a nudge to ping her and see how things were going.  Last night I received a reply.  When I read the exact sentence I’d imagined receiving from her?  


I felt wonderful and excited.

I have consistently had good luck with Mirror of the Mind but this was a twist on a typical healing technique.  

Rather than visualize an image with the outcome I visualized the words/the message.  

It worked!

This morning I sent back an email in which I shared this success story.

In Silva we are advised to recall a recent success when working a case as it boosts future success rates!

I’m taking the opportunity to share the twist on the visualization technique with readers since I know some have difficulty picturing a specific outcome.

When you can’t visualize?  Describe.

Note:  If you don’t get what you are working on it may be that you are not meant to have it.  Popular philosophy on this is the reason is the universe has something else in store for you.

The universe has you covered.

Be well!


I often think about the next day’s writing project before going to sleep.

After saying prayers of thanks and other meditations.

On the tail of the prayers and meditation last night I mentally reviewed the post about manifesting I planned to write this morning.  

Which is not this one.

Glancing toward the window I considered the time of night and how the stars were aligned. 

And the Aurora Borealis I read about which explained why the clouds were such a cool color.

I thought briefly about a chapter in the Intention Experiments that mentioned researchers had the best results when attempting to manifest at 1 am sidereal time.

Here is a sidereal time converter.

After deciding I wasn’t up for a middle-of-the-night manifesting session I turned my attention to the Port Gallatan novel I’m working on, which made me smile.  

A good way to drift off to la a land.

Not sure if that put me in a specific state of mind for problem solving – being in a good mood like that – but I woke up with a cool manifesting idea I’m eager to try.

One that may increase the chance for success.

It’s no mystery this idea popped up immediately upon waking given what was on my mind before sleeping.

The effect of seasonal and daily time on manifesting efforts.

What is interesting is that I wasn’t thinking about anything.

The idea immediately popped into my mind upon waking, before I even opened my eyes.

EMFs affect manifesting.

What the authors call intentions.

The book goes on to detail a number of experiments in which researchers evaluated the effects of a number of variables on manifesting their intentions, including EMFs.

They noted better results when EMFs were blocked.

I myself have observed this in terms of prayers.  Whenever I’ve lit a candle and said an accompanying prayer at Grace Cathedral the prayer has been answered. 

For the entirety of the years I lived in the Bay Area.

 I have not had that success rate – 100% – before or after.  

It’s been years since I’ve visited San Franciso but every time I do I stop in at Grace.

I determined based on a number of factors related to my EMF research that Grace is constructed in such a way – including where it’s located – as to be the perfect EM shielding location.

That people come together for prayer – another factor covered in the Intention Experiments – definitely doesn’t hurt.

It was observed that building up the energy of a specific location for the purpose of manifesting was helpful.

The Idea

The book mentions a box constructed for the purpose of shielding intentions from EMFs.  

And how this increased the success rate.

Not having access to the box means I have no idea what materials were used in its construction.  However, years of having to find and use materials to shield myself from harmful EMFs mean I have a few with which to test my idea.

I’m sharing so readers can try this too!

Write down an intention (a goal to manifest) then shield it and see what happens.  

This is pretty ad hoc so keep this in mind. At the same time, it is important to be sincere in your efforts.

Skepticism will definitely work against you.

The quick and easy way I believe would be to write your goal – what you want to manifest – on a piece of paper and sandwich it between a couple sheets of aluminum foil.

Put it in a drawer or somewhere out of the way where it won’t get tossed by accident.

Another possibility would be to write the goal on paper and put it under a magnetic material such as hematite.

Again, put it out of sight.

The prevailing philosophy is that goals be kept from prying eyes lest the energy be dissipated.

You would not want anyone’s skepticism or any other negative energy to taint your dream.

There are a number of options to try.

Copper, silver, and other metals are good materials whereas stainless steel is not ideal.

An additional benefit to putting the intention out of sight is that it may increase the chance you let go of the outcome.

Out of sight, out of mind.

Obviously, this is a subjective test because only an individual will know when and how their goal has manifested.  And since you cannot use the same intention with different shielding materials since you won’t know which worked, it is difficult to have a control.  However, it would be interesting to try simply writing down a goal and sticking it in a drawer to see what happens. Prevailing theory is that it still has a good chance of manifesting though some, such as the author of It Works say it’s important to look at the list of goals daily.

Jose Silva suggests with the Mirror of the Mind technique you need to think on the goal – already attained – multiple times a day.

I’m going to approach this test very casually.  I’ll start with small things and work from there.

I may also try for one big one and try to forget about it by putting it away somewhere.  

Shielded, of course.


I was in the liquid think tank (shower) when I remembered the impact of GMFs on manifesting. If you live on or near a fault line you need to consider materials that block GMFs. As I write in Riding the Waves: Diagnosing, Treating, and Living with EMF Sensitivity, every time I tried to manifest something after relocating to the East Bay I got the exact opposite of what I was trying to manifest.

It got so bad I quit trying for years.

After moving to Fort Collins, selected because it’s the least geologically active part of the country, my manifesting efforts took off.

I write about materials for dealing with GMFs in Under Siege: Tools and Strategies for Dealing With the Pillars of EMF Sensitivity.

Incidentally, Grace Cathedral is on what is called the Bay Block so GMFs are not a factor.


This is my third attempt at writing about an aspect of manifesting goals that came to mind while I was in the liquid think tank this morning.

The shower.

I was thinking of an email exchange with a friend who has recently attained a major goal.  

One he’d been working toward for years!

During that time in which we traveled parallel lanes as we went for goals we did what we could to support each other’s efforts.

Sometimes acting as a cheering coach, other times a sympathetic ear.

I recently suggested he read Neville Goddard’s Be What You Wish and while it may seem an odd suggestion if he’s achieved his goal, it’s actually a critical piece of the puzzle if he doesn’t want to lose what he’s achived.

Most people, myself included, think of the action items they need to do to achieve the goals.  What about what you need to avoid?

Whether you are on the path toward the goal, you have recently achieved it, or you’ve had it for awhile what you don’t do is as important as what you do if you want to attain and/or maintain it.  

Fortunately, you can use Neville’s approach for either.

Let’s say your goal is to be a successful consultant.  Depending on the industry some of the tasks you’d need to do would be take specialized training, subscribe to an industry publication.

Perhaps join a professional association.  

But what shouldn’t you do?

In a nutshell, you’d need to avoid actions, situations, and individuals that would negatively impact your efforts.

You’d do well to avoid activities that would distract you from what you should be doing as well as avoiding people who aren’t supportive of your efforts.

The last one can be trickier than you might imagine because it may not be obvious at certain points along the path to your goal.

As I thought about strategies that might help my friend in determining next steps I considered the importance – now that he’s achieved his goal – of finding people who can help him sustain it.  Not just people like me who are happy for him, but peers with whom he can share ideas and embrace this new place in his life.

People who would understand the enormous effort that went into it.

Since it may not be obvious where and how to find these people – outside professional organizations – it makes sense to go back to Neville’s strategy.

What would a person who achieved this do?  How would they spend their time and with who?

I’m not suggesting turning your back on friends but it is critical to be around people who can support who you are and where you want to go next.  

Who can help you maintain this new phase of your life.

If it’s related to a specific goal, it’s likely you’d want to narrow your search.

You recently passed the bar. What is the next most important thing to do?

If it’s related to a lifestyle goal, you would also want to narrow your search.

You moved to a new state.  What unique activities do the locals do that would help you feel the place home and feel like a local?

Perhaps most importantly, what do you need to let go of?

  • Unless there’s a valid reason you may not want to hang around college after you’ve graduated and passed the bar.
  • It wouldn’t make sense to tell everyone in your new state how much you miss your old state or why a certain store or brand or activity in your old state is superior to anything available in your new state.

While taking this step can happen at any point along the journey to your goal, starting early would be helpful.  

  • If you are studying to be a lawyer, subscribe to legal journals, join a professional organization, find and hang out with other attorneys
  • Visit the new state before moving if possible so that by the time you move it already feels like home.  If you can’t?  Read up as much as you can about it and/or subscribe to a magazine dedicated to a major city there.

No Time Like the Present

Sooner is better.

We go through a number of transitions along the path to our goal.  We grow and become.  If we embrace these changes up front by realizing ahead of time who we need to be, we bring the goal to life that much sooner.

Be sure to include what you won’t do or who you won’t be in your planning.

Letting go of that which no longer serves.

Don’t forget to celebrate your victory, but equally as important, hold on to what you’ve achieved.

Honor yourself.
