IDEAS for entertainment, education & being fearless

In energy modalities, soothing energy comes off the hands of a trained professional

In energy modalities, soothing energy comes off the hands of a trained professional

Need help studying or hanging out with grownups during holiday preparations? Worrying too much? Feeling scared but don’t know where to turn when everyone around you says “Not now” or “It costs too much”?

Almost any one will enjoy chair massage, yoga, and moves that even a JEDI Master would recommend. Once they try it, people generally love energy work like Reiki and chakra balancing, acupressure, and new energy psychology tools such as EFT that can help with self-confidence and passing tests, and feeling low because grandma’s bad knees bother her so much.

Look what we’re doing each month in Toledo, Ohio.

WHEN: Dec. 16, 2008 – 6:30-8:30 p.m. (event and sessions offered FREE though locations may vary)
WHERE: the NEW Yoga Integration Studio at 4633 W. Bancroft St. • Toledo, OH 43615

Dress comfortably, as Yoga Jenn, the featured presenter, will give a short yoga session at the beginning of the evening. Then seek out what you’re there for: to feel more relaxed, happier, more encouraged, or to try some new moves that are different than yoga and may be more of your own invention.

Donations to defray the host’s costs are graciously accepted (suggested minimum $3/per evening). Corporate sponsors for future events would be joyously appreciated. Children, seniors, adults welcome.

It’s Time for You.

Happy Holidays. The POFFF Master/Weaver of Yarns hopes to meet you there, especially if you know who Luke Skywalker, Galadriel, Yoda, gnomes, elves, fairies and Hogwarts are.

The use of entertainment to inspire people is growing, especially as we face so many changes in our lives.

We learn almost every day that the biomedical or western medicine surgery and drug approaches to common illnesses and diseases cannot fix what ails us, or what makes us feel unhappy.

In an effort to do all they can for themselves and their children, many people are turning to complementary, eastern and alternative medicine (CAM), with massage therapy and acupuncture being popular choices.

How is that entertainment? Well, entertainment is an experience and something that we see and feel that engages us and makes us aware of our lives.

Such experiences are your chance to meet energy scientists and practitioners, and learn about new words like biofeedback, or what activities like prayer, affirmation, or meditation offer you and those you care about.

Healing circles, community shares, workshops, sessions, and retreats that offer massage, meditation, or CCT are your chance to meet some of the pioneers in fields that may be new to you and new to the place where you live.

Who knows what you’ll learn about your power to do and be whatever you dream about.

You may meet, listen to and receive such a power session from someone who has used Reiki, a quiet way of being and praying energetically with those struggling with how they feel in their minds and bodies. You may learn about and begin to ponder your power to relieve a headache.

You may learn how to reduce the stresses of hard work, schoolwork, and exams, or injections and other medical procedures that someone who is well or who is not might experience on a continual basis.

You may dance with a meditation teacher and movement wizard who knows that when she brings her skills in touch and movement into difficult or troubling situations, children relax, learn, sleep at night more easily, and sometimes burst into shared laughter.

Such experience creatives use touch, energywork and life coaching and guidance counseling with kids who have cancer, families and caregivers in hospital settings, and people who no longer know who they are. These experts offer you and adult teachers ways to pay attention to what’s important to you. They also can suggest non-touch resources, as well as the benefits in school of reduced stress and bullying, and increased harmony for all concerned.

Talk to any one of these energy artists and learn how touch can help mom-dad-sister-brother-and you feel calmer and more at ease and how certain smells (called aromatherapy), nature, art and dance and dietary changes can help almost anyone feel better and enjoy more.

These are some new holiday gifts for you. If you live near Toledo, come explore and connect. Feel the joy. Let go of what’s troubling you and find a new you deep inside.

Click here to continue your free virtual experience… Change your school, home, church or friendships now. Be the change you want to see, or be the muggle or mudblood you are and just hangout. But if you’d like to sing or dance while you do it, that’s okay, too.

UNUSUAL JOBS #2

Gia Combs-Ramirez is an energy practitioner and soul intuitive. Here is a brief interview with her.

Q: You have an unusual job and live on a ranch. Could you tell us a little about yourself and what you do?

>>>>>I grew up in Montana where it was very fun in the summer and very boring and cold in the winter. When I was 15 my parents bought a second home in Mexico and I started living part of the year in Mexico (guess which part of the year!) and the rest of the time in Montana. When I was 30, I went through a big crisis (a.k.a Saturn Return) and I felt the need to get more schooling in something, although I didn’t know what.

Much to my surprise, and everyone else’s, I decided to go to massage school. From the beginning I loved the classes that were about energy. After graduating from massage school I continued to study energy through a variety of classes. Eventually I quit doing massage (but I still get them!) and kept working with energy. Energy is like the air you breathe…. you can’t see it (usually) but it is there all around us.

About 7 years ago I discovered I could do my energy healing by phone, which was fun because I began working with people all over the world. I could be sitting on a beach, working with someone on the other side of the world OR sitting in my pajamas while working. I really love my job!

Q: What do you do as an energy healer?

>>>> In a sense we are all healers because our bodies have built in
healing mechanisms. I remind the body about its healing abilities.
Kind of like a mom reminding you to pick up your socks… except it’s a
lot more fun and loving.

Q: What is it like to live on a ranch?

>>>I live on the same ranch that I grew up on. It’s not a ranch with cows and fields of hay or crops. It’s a guest ranch where people come to stay in the summer and ride horses. When I was young I loved the summers which were filled with new friends every week. We liked to play in the creeks, go racing across the meadows on horseback, and lie on our backs on piles of hay and stare at the stars. In the winter my brothers and I had to go to school and that wasn’t much fun.

Then I started going to Mexico in the winters and that was fun for a long time. About 6 years ago I got really tired of moving twice a year (and I had a son who needed to stay in one school), and my husband and I decided to stay on the guest ranch all year. Life is funny. Now I love the winters for being quiet and still and I don’t like the summers with too many people around. As a kid I would have never guessed that would have been possible.

Q: You write about the science of energy and a relatively new field called energy medicine. How can kids become aware of energy?

>>>>Just like kids are natural artists until school educates them out of it, kids are naturally aware of energy. Energy shows up for children in stories of magic. I don’t believe, however that kids below the age of 14 should be taught about energy.* Children need a lot of psychic protection and deliberately showing them energy can be too much for them before they are ready.

Teenagers do great learning meditation and entering naturally created altered states. For several years I taught meditation to teenagers and they were easily able to enter naturally created altered states of consciousness. I think it’s because their hearts are very open still.

*NOTE: This is gia’s point of view about teaching energy to those under the age of 14 due to her concern about psychic protection. There are those who teach Reiki to children in different parts of the world. There are also books on it for those called to do so. Reiki is actually a form of meditation and can help children who suffer from anxiety or have trouble in school.

Q: I felt sad today because something I wanted that depended on another person’s cooperation no longer seemed possible despite everything I did to find a way to achieve it. I went through a range of emotions from feeling angry to hopeful as I tried to deal with it. I became sad when nothing worked. If I were a young person, what would you suggest that might help someone like me?

>>>>For starters, if you were a child, you wouldn’t be able to explain yourself that way! I remember as a child getting really frustrated with adults who misused their power just because they got to order us around. They would change the rules to suit them, or that’s the way it seemed. That used to make me so mad I would do “battle” with them. Of course, they always won. What I wish someone had taught me was how to call on angels for protection and for help.

Q: Speaking of angels, many people today are talking about angels, guides, fairies, and changes taking place inside us and all around the earth. Is there a way for young people today to understand all of this?

>>>>Children who are exposed to nature at an early age, naturally know about fairies and nature spirits. Santa Claus is one of the best known nature spirits out there. If there is a strong foundation of connection to the earth, established at an early age through play and joy, this will carry them through a lifetime of being a “grownup” who mostly focuses on work.

The job of children is to BE children. Part of being a child is innocence. Whatever is going on in the world needs to be explained in ways that are appropriate for the developmental stage the child is in. The best way to “teach” children is to show them. You don’t have to talk about recycling to a child… just do it.

Q: What is a soul intuitive?

>>>I am able to see the soul or spirit of a person. That is the part
that existed BEFORE you were born and will continue on for more
adventures AFTER this life. The soul shows me all kinds of amazing
things like what it did before this lifetime and what lessons it wants
to learn during this lifetime. I can then give this information to the
person I’m talking to who for reasons that are a bit complicated to
explain can’t always remember these things herself.

Comment: You sound incredibly imaginative!

Q: If a young person or parents of a young person with unusual abilities are interested in learning more about some of what you talk about here, what would you recommend they do?

>>>Young people with “unusual abilities” don’t recognize themselves as having “unusual abilities.” They either think everyone can do what they do OR they think there’s something wrong with them and that they are weird and don’t fit in.

Reading the great classic stories about children with magic and secret lives such as the Chronicle of Narnia books or Harry Potter can show them how in the muggle world you might be weird but in the magic world you might be a Harry Potter! Parents need to be aware of the challenges of being gifted psychically and show their children simple techniques for shielding themselves such as using a bubble of color.

Often times the unusual abilities show up as “disorders,” such as a child empath or healer who has sensory touch disorder. Understanding both the upside and the downside of unusual abilities can help a parent guide the child into the positive expression of his or her abilities… at the right time.

If you are a young adult of 14 or 15, I would suggest finding a good mentor to help you learn about energy to avoid some of the pitfalls. The best way to find a good mentor is to ask your guides or angels to bring you one and then wait and see who shows up.

Q: There’s a great deal of talk today about the children who are Indigos, Rainbows and Crystals. Is it important for a child to know that they are one of these? What should a parent do if they think they have one of these children?

>>>>Indigos, Rainbows and Crystals are names that adults have used to describe the children that have been born in the last 18 years. These children often remember who they were before they became a human, have special gifts and talents musically or artistically, and also have talents in the intuitive fields such as being telepathic, telekinetic, intuitive and so on.

Parents need to become educated about these children and their special needs because these young people do not fit into our typical education and social structures. Be open to creatively raising these children, following your own intuition about what’s best for them.

Nontraditional schools such as Waldorf, Montessori and home schooling are best options for them. These children have very sensitive energies and having them around a lot of technology (i.e. computers) at an early age is not healthy for them.

Drugging them on ritalin or other “fit in” drugs will cut them off from their essential knowing and will create “lost” adults. On the other hand if parents understand simple energy techniques such as Reiki or Crystalline Consciousness Technique they can use these techniques to help their children, not so much “fit in,” but bridge the gap between their unique gifts and the existing systems that are currently being offered in education and other social structures.

To learn more about energy healing and modalities such as Reiki and Crystalline Consciousness Technique, you can look on this site, or visit sites that offer energy work and other forms of spiritual and personal growth work.

If you have questions for gia or the POFFF, please leave comments below, and we will try to address them.

Scared, Worried? Use Your Energy Potential & Tap Your Fears Away!

Are you worried about lots of stuff?

Do you find it hard to take tests because you get so scared that you forget everything you know?

Do you feel afraid sometimes about the same things, but don’t know what to do about how you feel?

There are many ways to help you with what are called anxiety, phobias, and fears and the ones I mention here are from energy healing, or energy psychology, but the great thing is, you don’t have to be a psychologist to use them.

One way is Hawaiian and is called DMT or the Dynamind Technique. There are instructions on the linked page and they are free. There is a booklet you can send for and if you send a donation, Aloha International will mail you booklets to serve a group you belong to.

Another way was developed by a man named Gary Craig and is called EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. The POFFF Master learned about it from a father who uses it and has worked with young people. A school psychologist also uses it at Maumee Valley Country Day School in Ohio with young people, and it is part of a research project being conducted there. If you click on the link, you can send for a free EFT manual that will arrive by e-mail. There are videos and other information on the site.

Both systems use tapping that you can do on yourself. The points you tap on are actually acupuncture points, the ancient Chinese method that has a lot of research behind its effectiveness. You can tap your way to self-confidence, and you can prepare for and pass tests feeling calm and safe as many other students and adults have done using these techniques.

You can also overcome shyness and embarrassment that may stop you from being all you dream of being.

Besides these techniques, you can also visit the page called, Chamber of Energy (above) and breathe in the energy there that is called Reiki. The POFFF Master personally uses Reiki and Crystalline Consciousness Technique (CCT) to help her in daily life in situations where she feels uncomfortable or unsure of herself. She recommends both systems, and feels that they are very spiritual, though in no way affiliated with a specific religion.

If you discover something that works for you, please let the POFFF Master know about it by leaving a comment below. What helps you may help someone else, especially someone who right now is saying or feeling that these ideas are ridiculous, stupid, or faulty in some way, or has tried many things and feels that nothing works. Don’t give up!

Please note that even though EFT may be called energy psychology and that some of these techniques are used by therapists and counselors, some problems are best directed to a licensed professional like a school psychologist or a medical doctor, especially if they interrupt your ability to live your life. At the very least, mention reoccuring symptoms or problems when you visit doctors, school counselors, or other helping professionals. If you use any of the practices in this blog, you may be able to cut down on medications or avoid expensive or invasive medical treatments.

One last idea you might try is to take a little time alone. Sit quietly. Breathe in deeply three times. Go deep inside yourself. Pretend you have a magic map that shows you things inside yourself that only you can see. With your eyes closed, look at this map inside you. It may look something like the map Harry Potter uses to locate people inside Hogwarts.

Your map may give you pictures, images, feelings, or shapes and colors of energy inside you. You may know or feel guided how to best use or change that energy so that you feel better. Allow your imagination to bring relief by working with the energy or picture. Change a color, shape, or size of what you find there and then notice what happens to how you feel or what you find in your life.

When I locate energy that doesn’t feel good inside, I use a magic vacuum cleaner to suck it up. It’s a nifty model because it sucks up the energy and changes the energy it picks up. It shoots the changed energy like fairy magic dust or star dust out its back side away from me.

I hope one or more of these techniques helps you today. Energy fields also help you. If you haven’t read the blog on setting these, you might do that now and try it out several times before you have a big test or event. Let me know how you do.

Return of the JEDI

I had a fascinating interaction with a seven-and-a-half-year-old the other day. His mother had been teaching the home schooled youngster about karma, and he had replied that he didn’t believe in it. This struck a chord in me because I, too, had held a similar belief not so long ago.

She explained that karma meant patterns in your life where when you did something to someone it came back to you and affected you. The old saying, “What goes around, comes around.”

I thought of the idea of a boomerang and brought this up. Turns out this youngster had a friend who owned an authentic New Zealand boomerang and supposedly knew how to use it. Whenever he threw the boomerang, it did not come back to him. It flew out and landed pouf on the ground somewhere.

“So,” the boy said to me, “no karma. The boomerang doesn’t come back to you.”

His mother promptly said, “How do we work with that?”

I considered this and saw a sort of duality. On the one hand, karma, and with it a kind of fear-creating idea or belief that what you do can come back and get you. On the other hand, the idea of there not being karma felt freeing and much safer to me.

Mentally, I went into no karma meaning that you’re not responsible for what you send out because it doesn’t come back to you, and, the ripples that come off the actions you take or the energy you send off can’t be controlled, interpreted, or followed into infinity. This seemed to me to offer a sort of vesica piscis, an intersect between two views. I liked that.

I said to the boy that I could understand how he thought, that I myself liked to look at the two sides of things and see both, allow both.

But addressing his mother’s question in a way that might have meaning for him, I began–off the cuff–with the idea of energy and how even though we can’t see it, the boy’s energy shot the boomerang out and even though it didn’t come back to him like in a ricochet action, there was an energetic connection of some sort and so that which he sent out he was responsible for.

He didn’t get it.

Earlier he had hurt his little sister. When I asked him why he had done it, he refused to answer. I explained that being a children’s writer, I often use real children in my stories. His reason for hurting his sister could help me create a character who had the same reason for doing something in a story.

This engaged him. He said he did it for revenge. (This, from a seven-year-old quite blew me away, so if you’re seven and you think and use words like this, you could make a comment below and quite blow me away).

I considered what he said, and from revenge saw the link to hurt. He wanted to hurt his sister. The why of it didn’t seem important.

I told the boy, “You’re a JEDI Master. It’s like you sent the light from your light saber out to hurt your sister, but because you’re still holding the light saber, what you sent out came back to hurt you.”

“How?” he asked, a bit gruff and ticked off.

“You got in trouble with your mother, didn’t you? You hurt your sister and that got you in trouble.”

His face remained blank but I felt the energy in the room shift. He told me about a light saber he had made with leggos and ran off to retrieve it to show it to me. I had been a stranger before. Now, I had become Obi Wan Kenobe, friend.

What do you think about what I’ve discussed here?

Parents, kids, teachers, let’s get a discussion going. Comments are welcomed on POFFF.COM
