Acceptance

Acceptance | Light-Life TechnologyThose of you who receive our monthly newsletter (you can sign-up here if you don’t) recognize that I start each month with a new intention. I think it’s a healthy way to take a moment to reset, reflect and recharge my emotional space for the days ahead. For the month of June I chose acceptance: acceptance for life’s challenges, acceptance for those around us and acceptance for ourselves, with all of our perfect imperfections.

I took a short vacation to Playa del Carmen, Mexico and went to the Frida Kahlo Museum. I knew a little a bit about her, foremost that she was an amazing artist. However, I did not know anything about all this woman’s health challenges. She was 18 years old when she was in an accident that changed her life forever. She had to lay in bed for months, could not sit or stand for a long time and started painting. Starting at 18 – she died at 47 – she had about 32 surgeries and painted 143 pictures and another 50 drawings and sketches. Do you think she could have done that if she hadn’t accepted her situation and did what she wanted to do anyway?

We don’t have to go so far! Those of you who have had great experiences with the Light-Life Tools and wanted to share them with your friends or family members and they were not interested. What to do?! Of course you have to accept that. While the tools are amazing and have helped many people and the planet, not everyone resonates with them. Which is just what it is, not good or bad! When Slim created the first Light-Life Tools in the early 90s there was not much around for cleaning the air, creating a more harmonious life for family and communities or many tools to heal you without any negative side effects. Now, in the 21st century it is different. There are many choices. When we are honest, we want to choose for ourselves and not have someone else tell us what to choose. So accept the fact that not everyone you love and care about so much is interested in the Light-Life Tools. Often this changes over time, when they are observing you and see the positive changes in you however sometimes it just doesn’t. And that is fine.

We got an opportunity to practice acceptance before our workshop in Horsham, PA started this month . When we were going to check in at the hotel the lady at the reception informed us that there is a water contamination in the area, all restaurants are closed and we should not use the water to clean our teeth, and of course, not drink. Well, the restaurant next door was the location for our weekend workshop. In situations like to all you can do acknowledge this is it and hope for something better to come out of it. Well, it sure did. Mercedes at the reception was very kind and offered us the breakfast area to do our Saturday morning and late afternoon and she gave us the conference room on Sunday morning for less than we would have paid at the restaurant.

Remember the serenity prayer? God, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Sometimes accepting things we cannot change means we have to leave a relationship, a workplace, a business partnership or a project we’ve been working on. While it may be hard, it is definitely worth doing. I have had many opportunities to experience that in my own life. Doing the right thing doesn’t always feel good in the beginning, however, from my experience, the freedom that comes with doing it was worth going through all the trouble.

 

4ocean Help | Light-Life TechnologyWhen I think about having the courage to change the things I can, two surfers, Alex and Andrew come to mind. They noticed how much plastic was on the shore and that fishermen wouldn’t pick it up because they didn’t get paid for it. They realized they had to do something! Now, some years later, they have 150 people employed worldwide and by buying one of their bracelets for $20, you contribute to removing one pound of plastic from the shores. Just think about what your $20 can do. When I learned about them I immediately bought 10 bracelets and gave each one of my employees one. You see, while the Harmonizer can clean the air, soil and water – they cannot remove plastic from the shore. I feel we have to work together to make this planet a place to live for many generations to come. I encourage you to go to www.4ocean.com and check them out. Please do read their story and purchase a bracelet. Let me know what you think. For me it shows again, that one or two of us can make a huge difference on the planet.

I saw on Facebook some time ago a 9 year old girl, who started a campaign ‘child hunger sucks’. If that’s not encouraging and inspiring I don’t know what is!

Maybe you have come across situations, where it would take courage to make the change and you just need a little encouragement to go ahead and get started. It doesn’t need to be as big as this one, but little steps eventually build a tall stairway. Go for it and please share with me. I get so inspired hearing those stories.

Before you accept the things you cannot change you may want to take time to examine why. Why is it so hard to accept? Was this something your parents or other important people in your life believed in? Something you were taught in school? Something you learned from your friends? What would your life look like without that thought? Is it really your truth or just adapted from someone else? How about accepting your power to make positive changes on the planet or maybe ‘just’ in other people’s lives; accepting your God given talents; accepting compliments and acknowledgements? Maybe it’s time to start accepting this. I believe we all are much more powerful than we want to admit. How about starting right now? I encourage you to do that. One of my very early mentors, screamed at me one day when I brushed off her thanking me for doing a great job. She said it is the most selfish thing to do, not to allow others to thank you. It’s like leaving them stuck and giving them a f… y… Think about that one. It completely turned my life around and I learned to accept people showing me their gratitude. Yes, I do sometimes forget but believe me, I got much better over the last 30 some years.

Our intention for June is acceptance. I hope you accept our biggest sale in the last 8 years and go crazy with it. We always have a sale right around Slim’s birthday, July 3. He would have have been eighty years young this year! I know he would be proud that we chose acceptance as this month’s intention. His mission was to leave the world a better place than he found it. I hope you’ll take advantage of the special. I offered a huge discount this time in the hopes that it would make it possible for many more of you to own a Harmonizer. Maybe it would make a good Father’s Day gift!

Agriculture Harmonizer | Light-Life TechnologyHarmonizers amplify life force energy and create a coherent light field around them. Everything and everyone that comes into the vicinity of the Harmonizer will be affected by the light they’re sending out. The more Harmonizers there are in an area, the denser the light field will be. Let’s bring more light and therefore higher consciousness to our planet and into our life. What an amazing thought, right? With more light comes more consciousness and this helps us open ourselves to the highest purpose of all.

Even if you are without a Harmonizer, I hope you’ll join me this month as I celebrate acceptance. It may mean accepting yourself and others just the way they are! You can’t force someone into an open mind. You can only lead by example. For those of you who are with me, perhaps you can show acceptance by smiling at all the strangers that come onto your path today, regardless of their color, creed or viewpoints.

Happy birthday Slim and happy 4th of July to all our American readers.

Sending you all blessings,

Katharina

 

Harmonizing Your Health and Wellness

As this month comes to an end I’d like to revisit my intention. In the month of January I asked all of us to set our intention towards goal setting, and to each take a quiet moment of self-reflection. What makes you happy? What do you want to accomplish this year? This sentiment is a nice fit with February as we celebrate Valentine’s day and all that has to do with love. Self-love doesn’t get enough attention, in my opinion. How can you have love to spread to others if you haven’t started with yourself first?

On that note, I’d like to talk a little bit about self care. What do your morning practices look like? Do you have any? I love to take quiet time for myself each morning, say my prayers, set intentions for the day and offer gratitude. My evenings include lighting candles for dinner and sometimes I use essential oils to set the ambiance. I absolutely love essential oils and the natural and healing effect they have on the psyche.

I was chatting with my team the other day and the topic of essential oils came up. I sometimes put a few drops of essential oil on a cotton swab and place it inside my Agricultural Harmonizer.  I find a cotton swab is best as I don’t want to inadvertently harm the plating with the oil. The Harmonizer is an intention based tool and is said to clear the air and spread the information of the essential oils, as well as our intentions we have programmed into them. I like to think of it as a natural diffuser that adds life force energy instead of watery mist to the oils’ holistic objective.

I highly recommend using only high quality essential oils. It’s so worth the money and quality oils can even be used for cooking. When I lived in Germany, my preferred one was from Primavera. Here in the states there are excellent oil suppliers to find as well. I’m constantly changing what oils I use based upon my desired outcome. I use a few drops of dill when I cook fish, or a few drops of basil in winter in my salad.

Red mandarin oil dates back thousands of years where it was first discovered in China. It’s said to relieve anxiety and I find it to be a perfect antidote to the winter blues. Rose Geranium is also a wonderful mood elixir if you like the smell. For me it is the ultimate in self-care. Did you know that there are over 700  species of this flower on the planet, but only 10 varieties that are able to produce this intoxicating scent? Rose Geranium is used for vitality, healthy skin and is helpful in combating stress. Patchouli oil is a bit polarizing as I find people either love it or hate it! If you appreciate the odor you’re in luck as patchouli is helpful for those battling depression. It’s also rumored to be an aphrodisiac!

Essential oils can affect our mood, but they also are helpful for our environment. Did you know that lemongrass oil can clear the air? Back in my life in Germany, I had an advent wreath (which we use as decoration before Christmas) with four candles burning on my dining room table. I made the mistake to going back to my office, just to finish a “few” things on my computer and about an hour later smoke and the smell of burning pine twigs was coming out of my kitchen. The candles burned down and lit the wreath on fire and started on my wooden dining table. After extinguishing the flames I used a high quality lemongrass spray from Primavera and sprayed my kitchen, my hallway and the rest of my apartement. It was amazing how quickly it took care of the smell. I also used it on the walls of the cellar of this rental building as it always had a bad moldy smell when I opened the door. It’s the perfect oil if you are in search of a natural air freshener rather than using chemical solutions.

In addition to this natural wonder, Eucalyptus has also been shown to kill bacteria in lab studies. It’s a perfect natural solution to employ when cleaning your home. I like to use it in my Harmonizer when I feel a cold coming on. I love the perfume and I find it clears out my nose. If you don’t appreciate the smell of eucalyptus you can always try tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is especially helpful with any inflammation.

While on the subject of cleaning I can’t forget to mention the formidable sandalwood oil! Sandalwood is often found in aftershave lotions for its anti-inflammatory properties, but what I enjoy is the cleansing effect it has on the mind. A little goes a long way! One or two drops on a cotton swab put in my Harmonizer and I immediately can feel the clear of any mental fog. Sandalwood helps me focus. When you are in the process of re-organizing or de-cluttering your space, cypress is the perfect oil choice. It’s said to provide renewed vitality, energy and enthusiasm for the task at hand. Sandalwood and cypress are great scents for the office.

Finally, no blog entry on essential oils would be complete without mentioning beloved lavender oil. This soothing scent is said to calm the nerves and induce sleep. I love using this at nighttime or for meditation.

Ultimately the choices are endless! What is your favorite essential oil? Have you tried it out in your Harmonizer? I hope you do and report back to us how it’s working for you. Also, place your essential oils in a LIght-Life Ring, especially the citrus ones as they usually don’t last that long. It may extend their life span and will definitely bring more light and life to all of your oils. Let me hear what you’re doing. Enjoy your own special way to practice self-care!
