in the presence of the poet,
all is poetry;
in the presence of the lover,
all is love.

come to the banquet hungry
and ready to dance.

there is no sound
but music and singing;
there is no life
but celebration and gratitude.

has your invitation been misplaced?
have your ears been plugged?

you cannot remain dry
in the pool of devotion;
you cannot remain rigid
in the wind of the divine.

come to the celebration-feast hungry
and with dance in your heart.

Thank you so much to everyone who sent their prayers and best wishes and gifts after the death of my father. Each and every gesture was appreciated. Death is a common ground in all our lives where the most disparate of people come together. I felt a great community of support — even from people I do not know or have ever met. Great blessings to each and every one of you for your kindness.

E-motion Potion

Incomplete expression of any emotion results in physical-life and spiritual-life inertia. The three basic negative emotions (fear/anxiety, anger/resentment, grief/disappointment) initiate this inertia.

blessthebody.com E-motion Potion stimulates the emotional body to release suppressed experiences liberating the psyche by completion of their expression. Depending upon your karma, not all experiences must be worked out overtly.

This is an important remedy for anyone undergoing psychological counseling, 12-step therapy, or any regression work. It is also important for people evolving from child abuse, both physical and emotional. But do not think this is a remedy for extreme cases — it can act with subtlety when subtlety is required.

It is common that people experience an "un-winding" — an emotional process which begins with depression, then moves into hostility, then nervousness — as a way of rooting out the origin of the problem. Do not be alarmed; it is a natural process to your clearer self. Combine with blessthebody.com First Aid if the emotional process becomes too overwhelming.


The effect of time on the physical body does not need to be negative. Healthy chemistry in the body results in healthy functioning, both physically and mentally.

blessthebody.com herbal remedy, Resurrection, encourages the healthy balance of body chemistry and stimulates the natural production of human growth hormone. Used as a tonic, it rejuvenates and revitalizes the physical body safely/naturally so the effect of time is not degenerative.

Combine with blessthebody.com Bright Brain, Chakra Tonic, and White Light for serious rejuvenation.

Feng Shui Astrology

Once again, if you missed the newsletter for the Chinese New Year, click here to review it.

In this Chinese Year of the Monkey 2004, the energy of conflict, arguments, lawsuits, anger (which results in fire in the home) comes into the East sector. The remedy for these negative attributes is fire itself. Depending on your karma and the architectural features of your East sector, you need to have a candle burning constantly, occasionally, or symbolically for the year (this is where an Astrological Consultation is helpful). It is highly suggested you burn only natural candles indoors. blessthehome.com Blessing Tags can be used as symbolic fire if your situation allows them to suffice.

Feng Shui Candles

Fire is one of the basic elements/building blocks of the universe and the use of fire in real magic and ritual dates back to pre-history. Fire is symbolic of cleansing/preparation, completion/re-birth, and devotion. It is used as a continuous, daily, and occasional element in feng shui, magic, and rituals both conventional and esoteric the world over.

Be sure all candles say "100% beeswax, soy or vegetable wax" — otherwise they pollute the environment and contribute to serious health problems such as brain tumors, lung cancer, miscarriage/abortion. Never burn regular candles in the home of a child with asthma/allergies.

blessthehome.com Ritual Candles are 100% white soybean wax and unscented for the very sensitive.

blessthehome.com Feng Shui Candles are 100% red crystalline vegie-soy wax with intoxicating aroma.

All candles are completely natural (wax, color, aroma) with cotton wicks and are prepared in recyclable glass for your safety and peace-of-mind.

To enhance fire blessings, always hold a specific intention in your mind and heart while lighting the candle.

Blessing Tags

Practitioners of Symbolic Feng Shui and Intuitive Feng Shui find the blessthehome.com Blessing Tags amazing and indispensable for balancing architectural energy. They are an excellent all-purpose cure and effective enhancement. Place them at the front door for general blessing and at the site of any imbalance or energy leak, such as water pipes, ceiling beams, missing sectors, etcetera, or to enhance any treatment, especially with bagua mirrors or ritual offerings. Hang blessthehome.com Blessing Tags from a string, attach to a door or window, or place in a drawer to increase their power with movement. They can replace red tassels, flutes, and some fire elements.

blessthehome.com Blessing Tags — in conjunction with the blessthebody.com spiritual remedies — help raise the vibration of your home or office to transcendence. It is also helpful to place one in your wallet or purse, car, suitcase, children's backpack or lunch box, dog house or pet bed, as well as your own. Some people hang them from every doorknob.

The cycle of life, the cycle of the seasons, the cycle of spiritual evolution — blesstheworld.com is proud to be your partner through it all. May grace and peace and joy reign on Earth.
