    Pardon me, but where is the evidence that putting all of the chemicals involved in vaping oils is "provides a safe alternative to tobacco"? And is not nicotine in its distilled form even more addictive than when it is found in tobacco?

    If you follow the latest research thet are not the ' safe ' alternative , and , could be potentialy just as damaging in the long term. Only time tell what diseases these will cause in 10 - 20 years of use. Good read though.

I have definitely kicked up my water game with DUO and to be honest, I haven't wanted much wine either 😯😆. We went to dinner yesterday where I typically would have enjoyed a few glasses (yes, I would have 😬) but I only had ONE!!! I just didn't crave it! I haven't changed my diet much because honestly I didn't really need to, plus I truly want to see what DUO can do for me without drastic changes. My evening snacking has reduced too!! Most nights this week, I've woken up in the same position I fell asleep in....DUO sleep is like 🤗😍😴😴😱🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 My energy level throughout the day these last 2 days have been awesome too!

    I love perfume, especially soft subtle scents. Perfume should be used sparingly and, in fact, some people are allergic to certain scents.

    I have always loved the scent of lavender and citrusy scents, as well.

    Perhaps, beBee should come out with a perfume - Golden Honey!

    That movie, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, was so creepy, @Juan Imaz! But I couldn't walk away from watching, it was compelling visually, and the story was intense. I struggle with perfume on others, it seems many people use far too much and it's overwhelming to someone with a sensitive nose like mine. Perfume is best used subtly, with just the barest hint of scent. I discovered my favorite while traveling in Provence, France. When I spray it, from 18 inches or so, and walk into the mist, I'm transported back to that amazing trip to Nice, St. Paul du Vence, and Tuscany. Every time I wear it and hug people, they comment on the lovely scent. Perfume can be magical, when used sparingly!

    Thanks, Juan, for such interesting information on such an pungent topic (lol). I always wear cologne when I go out and have used different brands over the decades starting in high school.
    For the past years, my favorite brands have been "Hugo Boss" and "Express Honor for Men." My better half, Nicole, uses "Burberry Brit." In high school and college I recall using "Drakkar Noir" and "Paco Rabban for Men."
    What about you, Juan, what's your cologne of choice? Has it changed over the years or decades?
    Lastly, I would just note there's a fine line between wearing too much cologne/perfume versus too little. It's very important to use the right amount. No one should want to smell like they bathed in cologne/perfume.

    #47 Hi Sue, it's interesting, if we believe we are our stories, without them, who would we be? It's true, we are not our stories, but as many of us use them to define who we think we are, the fear in letting go of them, cannot be underestimated. Is it perceived by some that in doing so, they will become undefined? After a life of believing that identity is one's job, "Hi, my name is & I'm a [insert job title]" or one's position within the family - someone's brother/sister, mother, partner, child, etc. in giving up these stories, there is no guarantee that a safety net will catch us at the other end of any de-conditioning process.

    The mind is a meaning making machine. We will always seek ways to try to explain things. It is that which can lead to searching for truth. That truth can lead to consciousness. The truth about what causes dis-ease in the body & how healing is changing as the massive changes take place on earth.

    Great point about perception is projection. People are mirrors of that which lies within us. Yes, I recognise there are elements within that are resistant to change, yet it was unfair to continue working with clients when I was an interpreter, as my empathy for their stories waned. Thanks for contributing & no, I'm not aware of which elephant analogy you're referring to.

    26/06/2017 #47 Sue Bryan
    #13 I appreciate this rich discussion, Tricia. I believe we are being called to release any and all of the stories that we use to try to explain things. Every person's story is describing part of the elephant. (Do you know that story?) Each of us is pointing at a greater truth that none of us can see yet. It is ineffective to mistake the stories we tell as being the ultimate truth. What we see and how we interpret what we seem to see is all projection of our own consciousness. I also have an education background and realized that I was not yet healthy enough to work in that field as I was continually seeing what was wrong, unfair, corrupt, etc. I didn't like the energy I was in when I was thinking and perceiving in that way. As healers and coaches it is very interesting from the projection point of view that we are perceiving people who are not ready to change. What does that say about us?

    #42 I was looking for where your comment fits, Harvey, & without an @mention who you were responding to (#33 isn't hyperlinked, but I think it's in response to #32).

    Politics and inept staff spring to mind. One of my managers was promoted by default & staff almost lost their jobs (as the person went off on a self-promotion jaunt around the deadline for the business plan. The department would've been without funding in the new fiscal year had another manager not stepped in & saved our team. Not stating my previous employers on my online profiles gives me the freedom to write, while respecting their right to anonymity... Perhaps the corporate "struggles" are universal?

    The politicians "muck about" with education and targets to the detriment of children's development, replacing play with training them in readiness for SATs tests with a focus on school league tables. There's reports of kids as young as 4 having panic attacks. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-39589910 I'm sure the issues are multi-faceted & the solutions require a multi-disciplined approach. I think Sir Ken Robinson has the right idea (& I can't remember which Scandinavian country has better academic achievement that the UK and the kids don't have homework, but there's an emphasis on creativity & play).

    26/06/2017 #43 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #35 #37 I am with you on a lot of the details, @Brian McKenzie, while seeing it from an entirely different and enlightening and joyful perspective. To sum up:

    God is not 'out there' but within every single one of us. The consciousness we experience is god. All the formalized religions just took this nugget and embodied it within people and stories based on the societal influences of that time/place. Most of them, in their own hierarchy, began to defeat their own initial quest to talk about this capacity every single one of us have that is incredibly difficult to talk about.

    We can certainly find stories and spiritual communities helpful or hurtful.

    So there isn't a god, then each of us is our own creator, when it comes to the utilization of our consciousness.

    Just like you broke away from the entire framework of american life, you can chose your own definition of joy right now and go on the ride of your life. You already do in many ways. But you see it as a reaction against, when a small pivot to seeing it all as a choice to be your unique self becomes effing empowering in its attraction of a tribe making radical choices, just like you.

    And all the sudden the grumbles become your own version of sharing the bounty of the path you are whacking for your own life.

    The change from I am forced/required to be this sort of trailblazer to I chose to be this sort of trailblazer - well it's hard, but really revolutionary.

    (And as in most of my comments, I am more trying to elucidate my own thinking, rather than advise you in any way, unless my words ignite something.)

    Education has not changed but rather constantly and consistently reveals the layer of strata in the wrong direction.

    You're absolutely right that we need spotters to show us what lies in our blind spots. If these beliefs weren't hidden, we'd probably be living in a very different world today. An existence where people are conscious of their freedom to choose.

    Yes, the speed of the questions are to keep up with the rate at which information becomes available to me about a person, in a "hold on to your hat; you're in for a ride." sort of pace.

    #37 Hi Brian, I'm going to bow out and leave others on this thread who wish to interact with you to do so. I've spent many years trying to convince others, much to my frustration. I recognise that this was about trying to get others to see life from my map of the world, instead of respecting their map and their journey.

    You are, of course, entitled to believe what you want. However, as a Highly Sensitive Person, it is in my best interests to not interact with people who have a, dare I say it, negative outlook. Energetically, I pick up on those vibrations, even over the internet; even through the written word. I then have to spend time 'discharging' other people's energy. The reason I left my old profession is that I was supporting people who had no desire to, or were incapable of, change. Today, as I am still working on patience & letting go of frustration, I choose not to be around people who choose to disempower themselves.

    All the best

If there is - then IT is of no impact on the world - so back to square one - there isn't one.

    #32 (sorry, I was testing if I had maxed out the characters permitted on a comment) My point is that in addition to your comment about many children lacking a frame of reference for a day at the beach, for some, it may have been where some childhood trauma took place. I guess it's a bit like hypnotherapy scripts, instead of defining where one's happy place is by describing it, it's self-defining what and where our happy place is (but that probably involves differentiated learning materials and people are already working under time constraints). Actually, it makes me wonder whether the experience of your children is due to socio-economic factors/deprivation or geographical location...

    I wasn't aware of the mind when I was working in the field. I only knew that we had a finite amount of time to help students turn it around. They arrived at college, after their school teachers had written them off. The trick was to give them enough encouragement to discover for themselves where their plateau was, instead of accepting somebody else's opinion.

    It was a balancing act - promoting independence, yet acting as a safety net in the background, ready to step back in to support communication between them and their non-deaf peers, to enhance social integration. Sometimes support was a hindrance and encouraged dependence - both parties thought they couldn't "do it" without you, until they tried. One of the problems I had managing staff was that there was a conflict of interest in promoting independence and the support worker's vested interest (financially) in students being dependent upon them.

    In terms of developing skills, some students came to us with qualifications that didn't match their knowledge and ability. They'd had 'sympathetic' support workers who'd done the work for them. That denies them the opportunity of acquiring the skills, gives them an unfair advantage & certainly doesn't prepare them for the world at large. Thanks for your comments.

    #32 I agree with your comments about special education. I can only refer back to my experience of the individuals/groups I've worked with: Deaf people - with Learning Disabilities; - with Mental Health issues, - with dual MH & LD, - with a visual impairment & those in forensic MH services. What was common was sensory deprivation - I'm speaking in terms of pragmatics, not of Deaf sign language users being a linguistic minority. Whether it's introducing a new concept or communicating letter-by-letter on a DeafBlind person's hand a community meeting discussions, the building blocks of knowledge are often missing, so we backfill, before we can give access to the information conveyed.

    The lack of auditory memory (speech sounds for reading and writing) & the fact that sign language is syntactically opposed to written English means that literacy & story time are problematic. That's compounded by the failure of the education system (Older Deaf people were taught speech & language therapy at the expense of their education, so they could be assimilated into society and work in factories, but had poor literacy). Abuse at residential schools for the Deaf, many attended aged 3 or older & weren't allowed to sign (bonding; attachment theory) & elderly Deaf people knew each other by the number they were given at school. Schools were so far away from home, they only returned during holidays. 90% were born to parents who weren't deaf, so communication & isolation within the family was an issue. MH issues in the Deaf community was higher than in wider society, when I was working in the field.

    Today, depending on the education authority, those in mainstream education can be supported by staff with basic or conversational level signing skills - insufficient to grasp & convey concepts & curriculum subjects. Hopefully, the reading age for school leavers has now risen above that required to read a tabloid.

    #29 Thanks for your feedback and comment of the comment. We call the folks you seek 50 percenters. The folks who are on the edge of change and are becoming seekers. They know that something is out there and they want it but lack the process map of understanding the journey.

    In special education you are dealing with a childhood narrative that is difficult to get through and give tools of success. Many of my own personal journey has been to understand how the brain evolves within society and then how can it be changed. From behavior management to the skills (or lack of) that lock the brain in a position, to understanding how reading is one of the major contributors to anti-social behavior.

    I read a study done by a college in England and a statement crushed me. The author used the sentence, "A day at the beach." This sentence conjured up childhood memories, my own family memories and a narrative of pure joy. The author went on to speak to the fact that many have no narrative of this nature. So A day at the beach meant nothing.

    The contrast for this is a teacher who has experienced the joy of the narrative teaching a student who has not. This has been my journey for the past ten years. How to make simple words mean something for the person who has not experienced that joy.

    Increasingly i am sensing that the 50 percenters are becoming less and less as the Matrix grows within media. Why seek higher meaning when the path is laid out for greatness on TV. But as i sense in your walk we will keep looking and promoting the greatness of humanity.

    #25 @Brian McKenzie the silver lining is somewhat lost within your comment:) Although your points are valid the thought process lends itself to existence. Death is one answer to existence. Given this as an answer then we can also seek different answers. Why you would choose any other answer is totally personal.

    One would think that any answer should include your own personal gratification of existence, peace and joy and by extension the service of others in their journey.

    Humans are here. The beauty of existence is your complete control of the why question. To take advantage or not of the existence is anyone's prerogative.

    You cant tell me you don't secretly hope heaven doesn't have a stretched Harley.

    "I have met and worked with several professionals, when confronted with their feelings of pride and the energy they put forth to maintain, i get rebuked harshly. To uncover "why" we must have the courage to review our own self-awareness matrix."

    I can relate to this. It does, perhaps, depend on the context & what protocol dictates. Once we have permission to coach/mentor if we are then rebuked harshly, we can revisit the coaching agreement. If we're working within the confines of other organisational structures, what is/is not acceptable may be less clear cut. Thanks for your sage contribution.

    Pondering idle thoughts: Bad decisions make good stories.More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better but also more directly involves me. Nothing sucks more than that moment...

    #9 Well Royce you're just a cyclist snob then! :-) There was a few of your points that had me laughing out loud, because I so related to them. Very amusing, keep them coming

    #8 Pamela, I ride my bike as well, and when I do, I still dislike other cyclists :-)

    I can see only one point I might disagree with: the cyclist one. I live in a huge cycling area and I have to say that most are very considerate of cars on the road. It helps that the city and county have created bike lanes all around the city and the cyclist usually 'stay in their lane'. Wish I could teach some car drivers that skill as they text and talk on their phone while easing over into my lane. I once yelled out the window: "I need a new car, just keep coming my way and you're paying for it!"

    How long have you been IN MY HEAD?! LOL (genuinely laughing out loud). I have had about 90% of these same thoughts. Not wanting to be the one holding the remote control in a room full of people would be an exception. I think I might be a bit of a control freak. This buzz is seriously hilarious. My face is sore from smiling so big and I now need a neck massage from nodding so much! Ha! Thanks for the giggles!

    "Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong." I disagree--suckier when you actually have to say, "I'm sorry. I am wrong."
