Going deep with Integrated Spiral

The following was transcribed by Otter during a one hour personal Integrated Spiral session:

Raw audio file of this blog post.

Integrated Spiral session introduction

Hello everybody, my name is Sheila Murrey and I run a specialized kind of DE-Program called, Integrated Spiral™. And I would like to take you through an example of what I do in that program and how I work it personally for myself and then at the end, I will give you some information about the DE-Program and if you feel led to become involved, or take part, or give this loose framework (as I call it) – how you can give it a try.

So to begin with, this program is really good for people who struggle with accomplishing a fairly large task, like writing a book, or developing a program or a course, or even starting a business (where you have to) put together a lot of information.

Perhaps you’ve collected many books that you want to draw upon the information from those books. And you want to do that in a proper way so that you’re not plagiarizing from those books, and you want to cite your sources and put together an index and cross reference and things of that nature.

Laying it all out

So in your idea (in your mind) of writing a book, it becomes a very large task. It is in fact a project! And being that I have worked in the information technology arena as an IT consultant, a business analyst and a technical writer, I certainly have the business skills that I can put to use here and help you. But beyond that, my love and my passion is personal transformation and growth. It’s helping people. And if I can help you feel better about organizing your information, putting it into a structure that will facilitate you accomplishing your task, whatever that task is, maybe it’s that you are organizing an upcoming wedding. It can be anything literally. It can be buying a house; I’m trying to think of examples folks have brought to me, but primarily I’ve worked (the Integrated Spiral™ DE-Program methods) with folks who are healing their body of a chronic illness.

Spiral sidebar about healing

Now, let me give my disclaimer right up front. I’m not a doctor. I do not work in the medical profession and I’m not a mental health professional. But I have helped people lessen to some degree, their grief, or depressive thought patterns.

We’ve seen chronic ills improve. I won’t go as far as to say healing of other people’s health situations. But I have Healed my body–the body that my spirit inhabits. I have healed it of asthma. I’ve healed it of an ovarian cyst that if I had let my GYN my female doctor gynecologist try to resolve, she would have cut me open and taken everything out. I would have had a full hysterectomy because it was a painful ovarian cyst, but it was one that liked to play tricks and hide. So I had all kinds of different ultrasounds and every time we looked it would either change positions or it would disappear, reappear or hide itself; she wasn’t sure what was going on, but we knew (it was there somewhere) because I had pain. And we could feel something there. But we couldn’t necessarily scientifically see something was there without going in and physically seeing it through surgery. So, that was her proposition to me and I refused to do that. I went back to an acupuncture physician in Orlando, Florida that I knew whom had been the teacher, the trainer for acupuncture to a previous acupuncture doctor I had seen, so it was almost like going to back to the source.

In my opinion, I trusted her and had done quite a bit of acupuncture when I was healing of the asthma: getting off of five different asthma and allergy medications and easing my allergies, seasonal allergies; all kinds of things have vastly improved ever since I did that in 2005. It took six months (to heal) and I write about this in my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Holy, Vibrant Life. In that book, I explained that whole process so I won’t go through that again here. But suffice to say in six months, I was off of five (5) pharmaceutical medications. My oxygen levels improved. I was breathing much deeper, more fully and speaking clearly. It even improved my speaking voice so here we are now. To this date, it’s 2022, so (I healed this body) over 15 years ago!

Because I believe my body healed, I believe any body can heal.

I am the LIVING EVIDENCE of TRUTH, of the body’s ability to HEAL!

If you cut your finger you can watch that cut close up and heal over the course of two or three days, depending upon your body’s rate of healing. But everybody is different. That (healing) is something you can witness for yourself. I’m not saying to (go and) cut your finger. I’m saying IF you cut your finger or something like that, you can watch that heal. I’ve also healed and watched moles fall off my body. I have literally used essential oils (to heal these) and either twist or just lightly rubbed the surface of the mole and within four or five days, up to three weeks depending upon what the mole is and how deep its roots go and things like that. It will literally fall off my body. I have I and some of the ones I’m still working on. I have shrank the mole in size–if I drew a circle around it and called it 100% initially, it would now be it like 25%– and it’s become much much lighter and much smaller in the height it stands up off the or from the surface of the skin. So I do believe the body can heal, naturally.

I’ve used I exercises and improved my eyesight! I have astigmatism and wear glasses for that. But my distance vision has definitely improved, so much so that when I go to get a new prescription and I only go every three years, they usually think that the previous one was wrong because they can’t accept the fact that I just turned 60 years old in January and my eyesight is improving because everybody else’s gets worse! But I maintain that the use of the prescription lenses are what actually weaken the eye. So I take my glasses off for large parts of the day. And I look out the window or I go outside and walk and I look off into the distance. When I’m working and I can’t get outside I look off into the distance and exercise my long distance vision without the prescription eyeglasses to help my eyes heal (get stronger). So I can give you example, after example, after example and I do that in my book. The point of this talk and the point of this blog is to give you details about how I would walk myself through the DE-Progam, Integrated Spiral™.

Why DE-Program?

Right off the bat, what do I mean by DE-Program? Well, as I’ve just explained, I believe the body can heal itself and THAT pretty much runs contrary to what you hear on anything mainstream, especially now. It’s all this reliance upon pharmaceutical medications, vaccines, anything and everything. From the outside in. I believe in stimulating what’s inside my body by acupressure, acupuncture, herbs, essential oils, things like that. And yes, those are put on the outside of the body but I’m stimulating what’s inside the body (to actually DO the healing work). One could argue that the pharmaceutical drugs and the back scenes doing the same thing, but I am using means that are more natural that are less, that there’s less money behind and that there’s less chance of manipulation of, so nothing’s perfect. At least most things are not going to be perfect, in my opinion. But this is the way that I choose to tackle it instead of relying upon something that’s driven by billion dollar industry and that can be politically manipulated, charged (extreme amounts of money for), or withheld.

What I do and how I approach healing of the body is something that once learned, no one can ever take away from you. No one can ever stop you from healing in that way, even if it is simply by means of meditation, which is probably the first and foremost (uncontrollable methods). Prayer and meditation are probably the best forms of natural and holistic healing that we have, but many, many people will not turn to those FIRST, they’ll turn to those last (if at all–because they’ve been “programmed”).

This is a different paradigm

You can see the different paradigm in which I’m coming from right off the bat. That’s why iIntegrated Spiral™ is a DE-Program because I’m taking you through a loose framework and a structure and a process that helps you to release a lot of the anxiety causing and fear based (underlying) tactics the mainstream uses to threaten you really, and and make you feel like you have no hope but their medicine and their outlook, and their diagnosis, and prognosis (their dogma–and yes, Science definitely has a dogma associated with it).

I say, look within and what I talk about my modus operandi, our mantra is, heal thyself. Let food be thy medicine. And if it can’t hurt, why not (at least try it).

Now, I’m not advocating that you go take snake venom or something that’s a known toxin to your body in order to stimulate your body to heal (though what the hell is chemo and radiation???).

I’m advocating that simply by eating good, clean, whole, local fresh food and herbs and knowing how to use them in the proper amounts can work wonders and they can still work fairly fast.

You know, one of the tenants and the reason that a lot of people turn to Western medicine or allopathic medicine, is that they can take the pill for every ill and it and it resolves the ill fast like an aspirin for a headache, but that used to be true. But now it seems like if you take too many aspirins, you end up with an ulcer or you end up with some other side effect that if you had just went to and tried to identify or detect what the root cause was of your headache, maybe it was drinking diet soda. You quit drinking diet soda your headache goes away. It can be that simple. Maybe you have dry eye, you drink more water throughout the day, and your dry eye symptoms disappear. Magic poof, go figure. All right.

Why call it a Spiral process?

To get back to the subject, again, one reason why this is called Spiral is because I tend to spiral off into different topics of discussion, in an effort to just help paint you the larger picture. But sometimes I do go down the spiral rabbit hole.

Spirals carved into ancient stones of Sacred Site: Newgrange (Boyne Valley, County Meath, Ireland)

When I started working on the project (that is a new course within Integrated Spiral™), I thought I really need to walk through this and take all the information that I’ve been gathering on three and a half by five (3.5 x 5) cards for months and months and also some handwritten notes that I had, and there was a lot of disparate information and thoughts. And so that’s where this deprogram can really come in handy. For more information, see my previous post: https://sheilamurrey.net/integrated-spiral/

When to use Integrated Spiral™

Integrated Spiral™ can come in handy if you just have a pebble in your shoe and you want to know how to get out of that painful situation; (exit) a toxic relationship or such too. But you can use it as a structure for managing a project, as it’s also very beautiful because of its elegance (and spaciousness). It can help to take some of the pressure off.

So let let me walk you through this example.

Organizing notes and references in a loose spiral formation

An example of Integrated Spiral™

So in the middle of the spiral, it’s very tight. In fact, it starts with a dot. But if we were to take a microscope on to that.we, may very well see that within that dot there are spirals as well. So just to say the inside of the spiral is where we’re going to start on this process. And it’s very tight.

An Integrated Spiral™ map

If you were drawing it out on a picture, you would draw a diagram drawn a spiral out. So that’s where the majority of the information that I had was, in the middle of the spiral and it was very tight, meaning there wasn’t a lot of space in between. I had a lot of little bits of information that I couldn’t really very nicely categorize. That’s why they’re in the middle.

As we start to move outward, where we have more space in between the arms of the spiral, that’s where things start showing up as larger and larger categories. So think in terms of middle of the spiral, lots of little categories, even just a sentence or two of information. And then as we move out the spiral, larger bodies, or better defined categories of information (are grouped into one pile/point along the spiral).

How to stack each group, IF you have to move it during the process

That’s really the process.

I’m taking physical action and moving my notes and 3.5 x 5 cards and putting them together in specific categories (or by subject matter). The notes (or pieces of paper) are placed on a bed, table, or on the floor in a spiral pattern. And this is going to help you when you start organizing them to actually get them into either a, a book format, a manuscript format, or say a spreadsheet or something before getting the information into whatever tool you’re going to use (computer or such).

If you already have the information, say in your phone, or on your computer or laptop we handle it in a similar fashion, but it just wouldn’t be printed out and we wouldn’t be physically laying it out. I do have tools that I can suggest to you. Or you can google and find tools that will look like a sticky note. And you can do mind maps or clouds where you can put that information in forms, and then you can move them around in the same way. But the Integrated Spiral™ process may not serve you as well as if you have physical notes, because part of the benefit is to allow the physical motion of putting your information INTO the spiral layout INFORMS the mind and eases anxious thoughts about tackling such a project, which is why you haven’t accomplished the project til NOW.

Mind Map software tool to organize your digital notes, references, etc.

The physical mess is usually what I’m trying or is usually what I’m best at helping people pull that information from their physical sources. Get it into their digital electronic processing, or spreadsheet form forms.

So, here’s what I have that we’re going to use as the example. All right, what is the level, amount of calls, or steps?

  • Sentence 1: About
  • Sentence 2: DIY one month, 4-week course
  • Potential name. WordPlay. It includes a 15 second video
  • Culminates in new deeply authentic content for your blog, newsletter, book, course program, etc.
  • My three teaching points are:
    • Listen intently for active listening to be heard and understood
    • Get still do your inner work
    • Track, log, record what comes up through you

After (voicing this into Otter or other similar transcription tool or typing it into a computer), I rip the paper, crumple it up, and it’s going in the trash (we don’t have recycling here).

So that was that was the first and second pieces of paper. Three phases.

Spiral side business note: Craft a targeted offer

Work backwards from whatever offer I’m going to make.

  1. My offer
  2. My design
  3. My target audience: spiritual entrepreneurs.
  4. Visualize and document my dream client: Someone who wants to shine their brilliance
  5. Set a date/time on my calendar for a “discovery session”
  6. My tagline: Be the best version of who you want to be –that’s already on my blog site at the end of almost every one of my blog articles (thus, I must have already implemented that note somewhere earlier along in my work–great!)

Next sheet of paper. Another business note: Let us promote you. Focus on what differentiates yourself. Efficiency customer satisfaction, home study. Group Program, okay, ripping this 1/3 sheet of paper.

Next? How would you love to be heard? Strike that. Move from feeling unheard to not only being heard but deeply understood. How would you like to come out of your contemplative inner work your meditation and prayer time to a place where you’re ready to share your deepest authenticity with the world question mark. All right, what do you get from that?

So the question is, so that you can fill in the blank in this example. Of course it’s so that you can put together your own project in an easier way.

Alright, we have completed the center of the spiral. We’re just now taking one step up and out. It’s still very close to that very tight center of our spiral. So moving up and out card one, God bumps!

Spiral side business note: 50/50 split with my partner

A simple contract 50/50 split can be renegotiated (with my partners).

Check in with how we’re FEELING

There’s a feeling of accomplishment that comes from doing the ripping in the in the wedding paper up and three and a half by five cards to just as an aside so it’s already helping me mentally kind of feel like I’m getting more space in my brain. I’m definitely getting more space on the bed, the floor or the table where these were laid out.

I’m feeling a bit of a feeling of accomplishment right now. And I’m feeling a mental ease. So already I’m seeing a benefit to this DE-Program philosophy and this framework.

Next card: love or fear, meld, balance, shift, duality, polarity and I drew the yin and yang symbol. So, you have white on the top and black on the bottom with a wavy line in the middle. You have both the white and the center of the white and the dark in the center of the black the white have written beside a bit love and the dark is fear. Sit with your fear, embrace it, love it. On the back of the card I have written “enter family reunion or soul reunion.” (That’s also great, because we bring in and honor our ancestors as a central tenant of working the Integrated Spiral™ process.)

Next card: no judgment, no fear. Take risks.

Next card: There’s a few names on this one, so I’ll just say Ash, Pattie, Terri. Underneath the names I have written marketing branding. As we hide our spirituality in business.

Next card: Viscerally feeling tingles on top of the head and Dr. Joe Dispenza. Okay, that one’s done.

Moving in a clockwise motion. This spiral continues out and up to the top right. I have a card with an energy line drawn under the word, fire. Learn how to listen helps us teach in a humble way. How does humility help us spiritually? It helps us listen. And listening helps us know how to ask questions. Put yourself aside. Put ourself aside. Something stirred in my spirit = GodBumps as we listen through our heart. Back of the card: Testimony has MONY in it and why? How to listen to trees listen to people the same way as wind blows through the Jack Pine Tree in the dark. Sounds like empathy. We can love spiritually with the heart, even if we don’t like the person.

Integrated Spiral™ subprocess

New point on the spiral. This is actually a process WITHIN Integrated Spiral™. (So, yes, I’m letting you ALL in on a bit of a secret! Shhhh… haha!)

Perform the DAILY Gratitude F-L-O-W consisting of:

  • Bow flow, sweep hands together – from the outside in
  • From the inside tap or pat, hug and swipe the body
  • Think/Consider: Ancestors. Breath. Water. Spiral blood flow. Foods that nourish.

This is the morning gratitude ritual. Breathe with the movements. From and with an open heart in all directions. Movement starts from the inside. Turn, turn turn in the image of the spiral. Food starts from the outside. Gratitude for all inside and outside. “We can choose the thoughts we dwell on” Les Brown. That’s a quote. Think: Listen to what I tell myself. How am I doing? Scale radius units human ratios universe. Observational units unified physics, energy mass surface to volume, ratio relationships, effects (Nassim Haramein) and the division of space and space memory. Electromagnetism diverging opposite of gravity, converging one attracts, one repels. Divergent and convergent. SMART goals: specific measurable, attainable, realistic and timely.

That’s one whole process. So, I’m going to leave those cards together because in the group, we work through that and I may update that again, as I see now that I may need another bullet on the spiral.

Moving a bit further out to the right. Giving a little bit more space I find another process. It’s called, “How to integrate” and I have some things about what I am calling these tools or sub processes that we’re going to integrate in. So, that would be the tree of life (the story tree) and then find the ripples, distracting others, coping mechanisms, or challenging the negative.

I found one I will put on the back burner about a methodology that helps connect you with a feeling of power that inspires.

Okay, that was a note to myself, so I don’t need that card anymore.

Next card: If you’re driving pull over and don’t close your eyes. Allow your body to wiggle and adjust to a comfortable position. Sounds like this was part of my meditation class. I can use that.

Next card: Air made up of more 78% nitrogen than oxygen which is 21% plus argon. Trees provide us with 28% oxygen but 70% of oxygen comes from marine phytoplankton microscopic algae.

Next card: Breathe. Circle your eyes with your fingertips. Yes, some of these cards got mixed up. (This will go with one of the previous and be used during my meditation class.)

Next card: Use this time to detach. This was part meditation class and also part of my “Communing with TREES” class (where when we observe our mind thinking, we let the thought float away on a fluffy cloud). I got rid of these cards and moved to the next point on the spiral.

Next card: Balance time between social media and actually doing stuff. Understand the dopamine instant gratification hit of addiction. Climb the mountain and learn patience make an impact purpose stay focused on our purpose.

Next point on the spiral path: “Just BE.” This points to real conversations within Integrated Spiral™ of unmasked conversations. Short and sweet.

Next card: How did you start the film festival? Isabelle could tell us her story. Two months before it opened she got stuck, yet it all unfolded. Isabelle is my 83 year old friend in Sarasota who will join us in the program the DE-Program and those who join will get a chance to ask her life questions from her amazing wisdom.

Next card: Trust and doubt or trust over doubt, inviting uninvited words versus attention grabbing. Practice: when I start to doubt, ask what am I inviting? Invite is the “opposite.” Use turnarounds. Reference The Work of Byron Katie.

Next card: short conversations. Just be real Isabelle-isms. 15 minutes of healthy self gestures for 30 seconds. Essence.

Okay, next point on the spiral: It’s going to be down at the bottom. It’s going to be down at the bottom. Looks like we have okay card center of spiral meditation, contemplative prayer or contemplative prayer.

Rest in the spaces between and the thoughts grow larger with practice, mind my own energy or manage my own energy. We are each a fractal of Omniscience.

Spiral side note: Minding my Energy

I designed a t-shirt minding my energy and in a few months my son and his girlfriend invited my husband and I to move to their off grid property for a 90 day test trial run (yes, the Universe really did put me to the test on that! Haha!).

Spiral side note: During the lockdowns

What we couldn’t have known then was that COVID lockdowns would prevent us from doing fun things in the new area or be able to move to another campground in two or three months if we didn’t like like it and we had issues. I’ve already written about all that in another blog article. A tropical storm hid the sun from our solar panels for seven to 10 days we felt like we were on a sailboat with no wind for our engine.

This is what you find out when you start working on your project that you’ve already used these notes for something else and it’s already done. You really don’t even need them. Yeah, because the next card goes into some more about that with our generator. Our first generator died within six weeks. Its replacement, the second one died at the end of the 90 day warranty period. We did get our money back and then we bought a bigger more expensive generator with auto start and a remote which was great. And I remember the day that happened because I had so much ease that I could just lean towards the window while I was working and press a button and turn on the air conditioner–which was amazing. Because I had been working with sweat running down my from my armpits down the side of my body for many days. And it was difficult. I do not know how people lived in Florida 100 years ago without air conditioning. Now, that’s a spiral thought for you.

Continuing on next point in the spiral because I’m going to just go ahead and throw away the next two cards because they’re all about that story, which I’ve already told in another article.

Alright, so the next point on the spiral is we can start coming around up to the left and go on upwards. Conversation with Elena 12 steps four noble truths Eightfold Path trauma, release and Kundalini for elevate elevation. Breathe, root, take into action and accountability. I think this was about the time I started on clubhouse and I was speaking with a lot of really smart folks who gave me more ideas of things, tools and practices that they were using, and they were integrating into their spiral process.

Peace. Pleasure. BLISS!

How, with all the distractions, do we get to stay in this state?

That’s something else we talked about in Integrated Spiral™.

By the way, as ANOTHER side note, I do not have all the answers. This is why it’s a group process. Group program group DE-Program, but it’s an intimate group of either four, six, or eight people, depending on who’s drawn to the work. But so far, we haven’t had more than eight and I think any more than eight might not be manageable. We will probably keep each group between four and eight souls and we will do just create new groups if we have more people interested at one time than that, but so far that’s been manageable for me because I still work full time job.

Okay, so next card: Mother Earth resets herself; make self care a priority. If we don’t, it will manifest in another way. One of my participants said, “Trust ourselves, find what works for you in nature, earthing and grass…” we’re overseeing (in this DE-Program) because again, everybody’s bringing in their tools and processes. We incorporate those tools when when it makes sense, and where we can, because it’s about taking the first step to getting that project done, or that new habit set, and then later as the spiral allows and affords us more time and space, we can integrate MORE in.

As we complete things and get things done, we can add in some new things like say a new book or something to read or to use as a source, but that’s when the project is nearing its completion. And so if it makes sense to add something new in if you were planning a wedding, it might be you want to add a couple new songs in and you want to contact the DJ and get the those things lined up. And if they don’t work, have a backup, just giving another kind of example there.

But for a health program, it might be you were doing yoga and someone told you about Feldenkrais and so you decide to find a Feldenkrais practitioner and add that in as a modality that you’re going to use. It could be things like that where you’re healing a chronic ill that you’re going to be continually adding in, and layering in, different modalities to help support what you’re doing.

Spiral side note: Alternative Health

Again, you can see that’s another reason why people won’t go that route (of alternative health) because they want everything to be covered by their health insurance. Well, sorry. Alternate and natural healing and holistic healing methods typically are not covered by health insurance. You’re very lucky if you get some that are and please take full advantage of those because anything added as an adjunct is is very good for you and very supportive for you in my humble opinion from being someone who has healed my body that way. I have spent THOUSANDS of dollars healing my body, but I believe that it’s been to my benefit. I have not relied on my health insurance. I went many years without health insurance. I know this is another aside another spiral thought, but I just want to put that out there. If you’re just relying on your health insurance you are your health is being dictated by your health insurance company. Not your doctor. Newsflash.

New point on the spiral: Spoke about trees, Mother Nature, what’s real, we exist, miraculous and crazy. It seems miraculous and sometimes people think we’re crazy. My friend Pradeepika. She’s from West India. And when it’s 11:30pm there, it’s 2pm here so that was just an aside note for me that I don’t need anymore because I started getting scammed by people on Clubhouse. And unfortunately, I chose to throw the baby out with the bathwater and just leave (that app) altogether. It was just becoming a toxic environment for me. I still have friends on Clubhouse though and they still love it. They established and maintain very tight boundaries–and I’m all about the ALL (as I bet you know by now!). They are very very careful about who they let in to their groups. If you’re on Clubhouse, I can connect you with them. But otherwise, that’s all I’ll do in that regard.

Next point on the spiral: We’re maybe sort of nearing the end. There’s a dosha or this is the name of the modality; it may not be scientific. Start imagining everything has a spirit; everything is one thing. Care about feeling better. Your own feelings inside get deeper. Good flow–when you feel a good flow. You’re on a natural high. Okay. Oh, let’s see.

This was another point on the spiral. And this was the beginning of a talk that I was writing that I didn’t finish. So, if it’s possible to weave it in to this particular course I will but if not, I will kill the baby (it’s actually, “kill your darlings”), so to speak. I don’t know that’s like a writing term (journalism term). I’m not even thrilled about that.

Portion of my “Talk”

Before I kill myself, let me talk with you for a few minutes. I literally have talking points. Yeah, I’m not sure I like that at all. To me that feels negative now and see? That’s another benefit (of this DE-Program process work) because now, you’re going back through looking at things with a different mind. Like Einstein said, you can’t solve a problem with the same mind that it took to create the problem.

And no, I’m not about to hang shoot or otherwise physically harm myself. So, hang up the phone if you have picked it up to call 911 for or on me, this is my way of a dramatic opening. Okay, you can see where I was going with that and why it’s not necessary. Certainly if you’re listening to this now or reading this and you’re in a depressed state, I would want you to call 911 or a suicide hotline and I would advocate every day all day long for that. Put on some Yanni or that song, Hold On. If you are familiar with that older song. I mean, stay with us. Tomorrow is a brand new day and you don’t know when you walk out your door who you’re gonna meet and what might happen next. And I am all for experiencing the universe as very surprising with a sometimes ironic sense of humor, so please, I would beseech you to contact a counselor 911 or suicide hotline if you have feelings headed in that direction to do your self harm because you are needed. You’re loved. You’re worthy. And that’s one of the biggest things that we fight in the personal transformation genre is that people feel they go down the deep dark hole and they feel like nobody cares nobody loves them. They’re not worthy. They’re powerless. And that’s a belief system. So, you know what we call belief systems? BS! BS = Belief Systems. And it’s all BS.

You’ll see when we finish this up because the last card explains that so hang with me. That’s probably not a good word to use. Stay with me.

Spiral side note: healthy eating

Next card: A look at all the things I do to support my health; point out the ingredients.

  • I care about what I put in my body, which is why I don’t take drugs, pharma medicines. Don’t do coke. I don’t drink Coke either. I don’t drink soda. Don’t smoke pot. Nor do I smoke cigarettes.
  • I care about you and YOU is in all caps. I share these videos, blogs, write books, etc. Because I care.
  • I want to utilize my skills talents. education experience over 30 years to help people spiritually physically and in their especially in their family relationships, but in all relationships, because we are all connected. And if you don’t know the story about why I believe that that’s my mantra. There’s an there’s a whole page on my blog dedicated to we’re all connected, please read it.

Spiral side note: Ancestral and new Energies

Next point on the spiral: We’re pretty much on the top again, coming around. I have notes about the Cherokee, Dr. Eric Pearl, and a few others. (In terms of ancestral Energies mixing with the “new Energy” Dr. Pearl talks about.)

I learned to honor my Native American ancestry in particular to Ceremony and social interactivity. And to honor the fire in the center as part of our ancestral ways, and how this lives in our hearts. On a mountain in North Carolina dancing at night eagle feather leads. We are all connected to the fire. Yes, the Native Americans believe we are all related. And apparently this particular person I was listening to and taking notes about said we’re all connected to the fire. So that’s how that got picked up and put in my stack of note cards. There’s a water ceremony that connects people all over the world. The Cherokees got their ballgame from the Choctaw tribe. Do our very best without hurting others fasting, feasting and then medicine to make our lives better. They use turtle shells women wear and to carry the dance rhythm and small drum. We play small drums for the Creator to hear as women shake shells. We dance. And everything is about Thanksgiving.

This is a framework. frame work. Our spirituality provides this connection. It’s a connected tradition. Good stuff is passed down orally (as we learned about the old ways and Celtic Energies in 2019). All of the stories in Ireland were passed down orally and the folks who are passing down those stories took great pride and care to make sure their stories were passed down accurately.

In Ireland, the children and grandchildren would repeat the stories over and over and then be corrected or guided or coached by the grandparents. The Native American elders also guided their listeners to retell accurate stories (and keep many secret).

So engaging in play is part of ceremony for us. This is still with the Native Americans here. We believe our body and spirit are tied together.

  • Practice mindfulness
  • Put our phones away
  • Be IN gratitude every day
  • In the shower, list things we’re grateful for
  • Practice balance and sobriety
  • Our spirit talks to us
  • Ground using running water
  • Take care of ourselves so we can serve others
  • Speak Cherokee daily
  • Keep the youth engaged (let them shake shells while the elders dance–in the past, only the older ones did that)
  • Dance during the different phases of the moon

Next point on the spiral: First 30 minutes of our DE-Program. And on every call ask, “How did it go for you last week from what we learned or discussed”?

Spiral side business notes: Overwhelm & promotions

In 2008 I was too scattered how too much at people and overwhelmed. Throw too much at people and it overwhelms them. “Schizophrenic entrepreneur” is an actual thing. Focus on one thing to become an expert and grow and manage from there. Use database lists three to four hours straight at the computer, get more clients. Use a press release. Grow Your Business build your brand. These are business notes promoting other people. I’d love to communicate audio visually. And blog for others. And sing original songs. I use music to ease my anxiety and stress. We could create animated videos, so far my hubby is my only happy client for those. I can offer digital works such as press releases, blogs, social media promotions, communicating, and connecting (via social media). Case in point, my husband just created his own brand new music website and all he needed to know was how to change the title in the header in the HTML. I helped him with that and it was a two-second fix (as any of you know who work on websites and do HTML). So he was happy about that. And I felt grounded.

Spiral side note: More rabbit holes

Next point: The spiral grounded, real and skeptical. These are all points that Dr. Eric Pearl has talked about as an authentic person the progression of integrative medicine. List of some people’s names who promote human energy and living universe energy. Everything at every level is alive in the universe, remembers, and evolves. Homeopathy; survival after death; and psychic abilities. Sounds like several rabbit holes.

Next point on the spiral: Discussion topic the toilet lid. Toilet has a lid for a reason. Put the lid down before you flush; when you flush, all that stuff goes up into the air and spreads out around your bathroom.

Next point is road rage. And the spirit of “Taking it personally.” Shakespeare: All the worlds a stage – Control = Ego. Fairness justice come from the Ego; Ego is everything other than pure essence ego. “What are we pretending not to know?” Marianne Williams.

Next point on the spiral: Meditate, set my route. Oh, this was from Stonehenge.

So, the meditation at Stonehenge had me sitting my root chakra next to the blue healing stone buried in the ground and began to thank Omniscience in and for all ways. That was deep.

Mindfulness and Yoga

Next point on the spiral. Start with mindfulness awareness, presence time, prioritize stillness, breathe connection. Be here now. Morning gratitude ritual. Opposite multitasking nourishing with food and grace before meals. We are all connected.

Next point: “Tune us the sitar neither low nor high and we will dance away the hearts of men.” That’s a quote that my yoga teacher, Dr. Ronald Porter uses when he teaches yoga in St. Pete. Let’s see I think this is my quote. Let me read it. There’s a little something more to it other than just being told that deep breathing as another alternative modality to relieve a health issue. Otherwise, we’d all be healthy and feel good with the amount of quality and knowledge that abounds in this information age. I have my name attached to that. So I’d have to look and see if that comes from my blog or I pick that up somewhere.

Next point: Yoga puts us in touch with the sun, subtleties way of life, which is not equal to religion. Yoga is not a religion, but it can be. Anything can be a religion IF you turn it into ritual (by “practicing it). More people do yoga for the body in the US than in India.

Next point on the spiral: What feels good to you?

Spiral side note: Do something new!

Next point: Do something new. Or release something, per Sherry Frost 2008. And I have a bunch of key words here fitness well being robustness, stamina, vigor, tone, top form wholeness, fine feather constitution. Palliative release is cure deliverance, solace, comfort, remission, consolation, cheer, breathe, help assistance. Alleviate, mitigate, lightening, rest, respite, happiness, satisfaction, analysis, medicine, therapeutics, and healing. Use the heart close rather than the hard close, especially in business. We are all in – and that was the business coaching comment. More tags intuitive, uncontrolled, common, ordinary, universal, regular, Natural Alternative, organic, Holistic Health Wellness modalities remedies therapy treatment relief prescription free drug free non toxic primitive, vital prime primal necessary fundamental essential original integrated, comprehensive full total energy strength, vitality, hardiness and bloom.

Next point: where are my wishes? This was part of a talk can only help it can’t hurt but the universe doesn’t hear no. So I wanted to rephrase that. Non toxic native to the body. I don’t have all the answers, but my allergies have reduced. Now I’m working to help my granddaughter’s I connect to others for answers and learn. I’ll keep those because those cards seem to really stand out in a speech.

Spiral side business note: Want to grow your brand?

Next point: Do you want to grow your brand, or your client list? You can see a lot of these things are gonna come out of the spiral though because they just don’t fit. One of these things is not like the others. That’s what we’re looking for. I can do all your online work for you. Highlight differences, no prescriptions needed drug free options. I can consult with you to build your email list. Send regular updates, offer coupons and specials, and promotions. And send out communications. But that may not mean anything to a therapist or mental health person. They need a website. They need help when they say, “I’m going to pull my hair out.” For those of you who are avoiding having an online presence, losing sales will be the result.

Spiral side business note: Continue learning & side hustles

Okay, next point: Neural network pathways fractals. Alana held on to the tree for dear life. Fractals, kaleidoscope, mystical power, infinite space, ineffable experience, one dose of magic mushroom can cure anxiety and depression. No fear of dying. Recalibrates view of death, quest on and we’ll learn together. It took a hypnotist a year to build her email list to 972 or so people. Joint ventures. Alliances work if you have 1000 emails and they have 1000 emails. Partners will be more willing to share their list with you, etc. if you both have similar size businesses. Say you send out an e-zine twice a month to build a relationship with chatty kind of people. And you write with personal tone, but they’re not all targeted for this type of information. You will sell 2%, 3%, or maybe 5% from your list; 20 to 50 sales from 1000. That’s your tipping point and it’s all a numbers game. I think that’s what I got from business coaching. Get the right people on your list! It can be fun to cross each 100 email address milestone while list building. Manage your contact list somehow. Yeah, there’s ideas about that which I don’t recommend anymore.

A college degree used to be near guarantee of finding full time permanent work, yet now, you may want to consider supplementing your income and build work experience with public exposure for those without a formal degree or second job. Seniors are supporting themselves while attending college, per data source: National Center for Education Statistics. Hopefully that’s the end of the business stuff.

Goal of Meditation

Next point: The goal of meditation is to release resistance release resistant thoughts then the thoughts that do come will be useful to you. Write or speak into a recorder, which is what I’m doing right now with Otter. Thank you very much. All right. Here we get to the crux of something.

Spiral side note: My history

Okay, Mom and Dad were opposites. How could that happen?

Mama always said opposites attract. We materialize our thoughts law of attraction or not. I’m glad you look for patterns. One of my friends loved these kinds of groups for two and a half years. Self Mastery is important ignorance versus knowledge. Ignorance is expensive. Again, with the beginner’s mind, well, that’s the seven habits. Stephen Covey. Not all who fight were alcoholics, right. I kept telling my counselor that. For years he thought every time I walked into his office, that my parents were alcoholics. And no, my parents were not alcoholics. But they still argued. They had just a high level of passion. They either were passionate and touchy, warm and fuzzy, or all lovey dovey. Or they were at each other’s throats. And it was a war.

Next point: From class participants I learned: About imagination. Love, how you engage with your senses; smelling sagebrush; staying in the race; planning everything. One said we wake up to miracles from angels when we least expect it. Reminded me of when I met Richard. Another participant suggested vision boards. I’ve used vision boards. I’ve used the list making as well, which is what I did prior to meeting Richard. One suggests awakening to a new perspective. One participant had a pattern of running away from relationships and school life; she allowed herself to be in that box though. Allowing is huge. She didn’t like the cards she was dealt. She looked at her patterns and felt the need to be perfect and for years I have told people I do not believe in Perfection.

Spiral side note: Don’t get caught up in who’s right

Because nothing’s perfect except a drop of water. You take a drop of water on the tip of your finger and watch it fall into the cup. You see that? Immediately the waterfront forms a perfect sphere. And I think in the natural world that’s built off of its perfect natural healing another point on the spiral energy medicine connected consciousness Why are you poisoning your family how know your how old natural foods alternative healing biofeedback clinic techniques, belief how you heal and just don’t get so caught up in the religiosity or the need to be right as so many things can be proven wrong at a later point in time. Remove the interference and the body will heal itself. Sure words never spoken. Now we’re about 90%. So another point on the spiral. SARS Cove two is not a childhood disease. Anyone who’s healthy with a good strong immune system will look likely survive COVID.

Spiral side note: Sacred Science Herbal Detox

And triphala which is T R I P H A L a is an herb if you take it every day and moisturizes the stool, you can take a half to five grams nightly around bedtime and I was taking that every day and have stopped. So that’s something I can do again. Note to self Kanwar, veggies, millet, fish fruit, mung beans, double water to rice and beans cook for 20 minutes eat three times a day that was part of my that was part of my sacred science herbal detox that I did last year which I will do again. The liver is the main blood filter and does a ton of things so purging through the bowels is good and kidneys purify water, any soluble toxins you can pee them out. At and here’s the information about that cyst that I was talking about earlier, fat soluble pesticides, some of those turn into cysts tests and labs will prove or provide information about what symptoms you’re What if you have symptoms and you have tests and labs done. They can point you in a direction to us to either heal or or detoxify. Help your practitioner know what you need to detoxify from.

Finishing up the outside of the spiral

Next point: Exogenous is from the outside in. Chemicals are exogenous and there are Xenoestrogens like plastics. Pesticides, endogenous is from the inside such as, cellular waste and toxins, poisons like bee venom, and pollution.

Next point: Sleep is a brain tonic per Dr. Perlmutter. Learn something new that you’ve never done. I use some clever tricks to shut off my mental chatter before bed. One is breathwork. I count my in breath. Then I hold my breath and then I exhale for more of those counts than the total of the in and hold count. In other words, I breathe in to a count of five. I hold my breath to three and then I exhale for eight because that would be five plus three.

Next point: Never get in my own head about this. We never know what someone is going through.

Next point: Do you want me to keep you in the loop?

Spiral side note: Health tests

I had some information about the Dutch test which is a urine strips that tests for hormones. You can also do hair analysis. Alcohol depletes magnesium magnesium for magnesium you can use a lotion. If your metabolic type is slow, sometimes very high calcium drops potassium in the cells. Just I have a lot of information on the very tiny card so I’m just I couldn’t keep them and I do recommend a magnesium lotion called Ancient Minerals seems to have worked very well for me and some others so you might want to check it out, if you haven’t heard of it. And if you need magnesium estrogen issues related to excess copper and cells and tissues stored in liver and brain. That’s that one.

Next point: Christina Reishi. Elderberries syrup she’s working on her new website with a friend and may need assistance with SEO. The natural products industry is very competitive. Yes.

Spiral side note: Current work

Next point: 9/20-21 I began learning government proposal writing. This doesn’t fit in at all with what we’re talking about. So, I can put this aside it’s for my career job/work. I have a card with some names on it. And how several people remembered me, and I wrote their names down to remind myself of my accomplishments in my “work” history. I didn’t just go out and find each job that I worked, which if you look at my holistic resume, you can see how many companies I worked for. And each of those was because somebody remembered me and that was just a thank you type card to myself for all the people that I have to thank for being in the career that I’ve been in for over 30 years.

Completing the spiral, for now

We’ve now drawn out our spiral for this and ready for what comes next… (see next blog article: https://sheilamurrey.net/2022/06/26/wrap-up-session-using-integrated-spiral/).

I know you’re heartbroken that we’re done, but this blog article is sooo long! Ha! We need to end it now. The next article will tell you what the next steps are–I promise.

At this point though, you have everything organized and laid out in the spiral form (or stacked to put away for the moment). Give yourself a big hug from me, and feel the feelings of accomplishment!!!

You’ve decluttered and organized the big pile of convoluted chaos that you started with. And now you’ve got all of your thoughts and ideas in a loose framework structure where you can begin to weed out (we already did some weeding) as we got rid of cards. And we put cards aside if we thought we might need them for another project.

This process is kind of like cleaning out your closet. Or when you’re downsizing and you’re going to live a simpler lifestyle. It’s the same kind of processes!

Yes, this Integrated Spiral™ method could be used for downsizing as well. I didn’t even think of that until talking through this. So, thank you! Thank you for reading and/or listening, if you’re listening to this audio. (You can probably tell I spent HOURS editing this! Ha!)

Would you like to get involved? Join here.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. Amen. Namaste. OM

Otter: Rant on Whole-ism – Holism, Dao, and Health

The whole Dao thing

Am I recording? All right.

Well, I’m sitting here driving and just letting my mind go blank go into neutral, as we mostly drive on auto pilot with our subconscious anyway. And I’m noticing something as I’m thinking about Taoism and the whole ism thing, holistic and spiritual versus materialism.

So yeah, if it’s true that one of the things I’m supposed to do while I’m on the planet is act as a bridge, to bring heaven to earth (regarding the “as above so below” thing)… and seeing that a lot of my friends seem to gravitate toward or to me (my presence or my essence), because they also believe in Holism, Taoism, holistic health, Buddhism, New Age, or loving light.

But years ago, and I realized this when I was writing my book, Take It Upon Yourself to Live a Wholly Vibrant Life–a holistic health book—that a lot of people that were spiritual, manifesting as teacher, minister, messenger, psychic, nun or simply someone that works with the clergy, they tend to be unhealthy. They tend to be overweight, sometimes grossly overweight, quite obese, morbidly obese, or just the opposite. Conversely, some are tiny, skinny, they look like they they eat like a bird and they’re unhealthy. And, who knows, I mean, the picture of health may not be the perfect BMI or the perfect weight anyway.

Over or under weight

I mean, you could be overweight or underweight and still be perfectly healthy and perfectly fine. But I’m just saying that predominantly, you could kind of look at these people who were more spiritual, and they look like they weren’t taking care of their bodies, maybe as well as they could have. In my opinion. I look at the whole other group of people were really physical, you know, they’re physically active, even older seniors that are playing tennis or golf or pickle ball. All of that crowd you know, the golfers, the ones who walk and jog and swim and and do all this the yoga right the yogi’s who are probably perhaps the only people who are actually working on their physical body, their physicality and blending their spiritual with their consciousness of breath. They’re doing all of that to to bridge and to bring heaven to earth the yogi’s, right? So they’re practicing yoga every day, maybe multiple times a day. Not like me, the sporadic yoga person, but I get the reason.

So the reason I’m moving my body when I’m breathing is to imbue the cells of my body with oxygen that then goes into my blood, which I believe is where my soul is, I feel my soul through my GodBumps that I feel internally in my body. For more about that, see author Davie Pfaffle’s interview of me on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EP0lqKnHGA

Internal Resonance

It’s a internal resonance. It’s a sensation that I feel I’ve written about and talked about for years. I know that my soul is in my blood when I put on good music and I feel the rhythm and I’m moving to it. That’s, that’s one reason why they call it soul music, right? Because you can FEEL it. You can feel this vibe in your body when certain music was on when certain music moved you when it touched you when it like, moved your emotions, right because that’s energy in motion.

You’re breathing and oxygenating your body while you’re dancing. You’re getting that oxygen which is from the ether or spirit and you’re getting that into your blood. So you’re oxygenating your blood, which is bringing heaven or ether or spirit into your body, which is your soul. Your soul is based in your body.

So anyway, not to get off track here, but I noticed that the spiritual people tended not to take care of their body. Spiritual types tend to have more body breakdowns like with body structure, even bones and ligaments and joints, aches, pains, arthritis, all kinds of chronic ills. And then the more physically fit people were they had to work harder to kind of get their mind straight or mind in order or reach for the spiritual. You know, they didn’t think they were spiritual people. They say things like, “I’m into my body.” I’m into the right weight for my body. I hear them say, “I’ve got the right physique and I go shopping and I buy all these clothes and I wear pretty shoes and heels” and all this sort of thing and they are really into their body! Look at them showing off on the social media. They are unapologetically vain, but then say they don’t feel spiritual. They often say they want to be more spiritual.

So I thought when I wrote my health book, I think there’s a market for somebody like me to talk with people who are seeking spirituality. Because they are physically fit, they do take care of their body and they get that their body is their temple. But they just feel like they need more they want to see more spirit, right? They want to grow their spirit or they want to, at least, understand their spirit, their soul, why they’re here and all that sort of stuff. But then you’ve got those people who have all the spiritual as well as, a lot of the spiritual answers but they’re just not taking good care of the body.

So I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I can hit both groups, target markets, and help them–marry them, and come into balance and I had that thought when I met Master Lama Nicholas Packard (when he came across my path and I learned about Taoism and took Tai Chi Qi Gong lessons from him). I’d already been doing yoga and I’d already been meditating and I reasoned, this is just perfect because Lama Nicholas is now explaining Balance (to me) and polarity and why we have good and bad why we have good and evil in the world. Because it’s ALL order. Three brings polarity, bring this balance and you can’t have one without the other and it’s all about proportion. I was gonna say moderation but you know, that’s probably where some of those concepts come from is everything in moderation because it’s in proportion, everything needs to be proportionate.

So when you draw the circle, and you draw the wave inside the circle, and you draw the yin and yang, there’s a DOT in each one. There’s the little white in the black and there’s a little black in the white and that represents Balance–with a capital B. And the wave is the change that’s always occurring because when wind moves across the water, there’s always a wave on the water. The water is always moving–even if you can’t see it. There is a time and you’ve probably all experienced this when you look at a body of water and it’s completely balanced–calm. It’s like glass. And it perfectly reflects the sky. And you’re like, wow, for a moment there.

Shangri La and Water

I would think, for a moment at least, that I’m in Shangri La. I would think that I’m in a perfect state of ease, calm balance, right? Because water seeks its own level.

So yes, you can stir the water you can treble the water like the old song. But water will always seek its own Balance. Water seeks and conforms in each moment, to its own level–ALL the time. At some point water may take a while and the water may bubble and do all kinds of stuff. But at some point it will still and Balance.

So your body is like that because our bodies are more water than anything else and bacteria and fungi and microbes. Things like that. But the cells of our body are mostly water. So our body is mostly water. Our body is mostly in this state of constant chaos and turmoil and upset because we allow things to disturb us.

But what if, and this is what meditation is fo–what if we calm the body?

What if we calm the waters inside the body?

Then the body can start to heal and can start to do what it needs to do to regenerate itself so that when apoptosis occurs in the cell (and the cell dies), the next cell that’s made from the pattern of the previous cell, is replicated off a blueprint that’s good and healthy. You know, the cell that had a problem or had a cancer is gone and died and the one that replaces it now replicates from the good blueprint. Now, you’ve got a better chance of being healthy. And I think we all have a better chance of being healthy than we have of being ill.

I’ve been ill and I don’t like it. I don’t think a lot of people like being ill unless of course, they can gain something from it. There’s got to be a gain somewhere in it for them if they want to continue to be ill because I think most people don’t like to be ill.

I’ll do anything to get healthy, get better, and live well. So I would encourage you, especially if you have asthma, because that’s what I reversed in my body… yes, I regenerated my body from asthma. If you have any chronic ill, I would encourage you to pick up a copy of my book or even write to me if you can’t afford the 10 bucks that my book is selling for. But pick up a copy because it offers lots of tips, tricks, techniques and ideas for potential solutions.

3 virtues: detachment, indifference, sameness

When you begin to pay attention to the little things you do, day in and day out, that are things you do out of HABIT, you can begin to gain more awareness. And with awareness comes consciousness. Life offers so many choices! You can choose to change your health and live better–you can! You can begin by practicing the 3 virtues.

Acupuncture

I mean, once upon a time I didn’t know any of this information. My husband’s aunt suggested acupuncture to me! Little did I know that by trying out acupuncture, which did indeed turn out to be something that helped me immensely, that I could heal my body. I had to do many, many sessions over a period of about six months to a year but I got off five prescription medications and then my body began to heal. I did other things too. I had to understand that I had a choice and could detach from the medical paradigm that I’d found myself ensnared in!

Eat whole food, release addictions

I cleaned up my diet. I started eating things that I’ve never eaten in my life like avocados and ginger, the real ginger root, garlic, lots of garlic and even I took garlic as a supplement to help clear up and then the mucus that was really kind of taken over my sinus and my lungs from eating a lot of dairy in particular cheese.

I was a cheese hound! But, I gave up cow cheese for a while and eat raw cheese occasionally now, YEARS LATER. But back then I ate raw vegan cheese made from nuts, and I made my own nut milks too. Now, I don’t go overboard and I will go without regular cheese for months–because it’s sometimes hard to find good unpasteurized raw cheese (though I love raw goat cheese the best).

Point here is, I healed using a combination of a lot of things like adding good supplements to my diet, eating partly eating less a lot less dairy. I never drank milk anyway and I didn’t eat much ice cream but cheese was my dairy product of choice. And I had to kinda get to a point where I could see my addiction to it. Any kind of “longing for something” can actually be “addiction.”

And doing things like meditation, yoga, Qigong back then helped me so much–back when I was healing of the asthma. I first had to stop torturing my body with those five pharmaceutical medications because they were only making me worse, making me dependent on them. And I didn’t want to take pharma drugs the rest of my life, which is exactly what I would have been doing. I had done for many years. So I would have continued to do that and my body would just simply gotten weaker, weaker than I would have gotten something that was whatever the side effect would be from all those medications.

Spiraling back for a moment–by the way, Pharma doesn’t test medications together. They may test the one or maybe two medications that are predominantly prescribed together, but they’re not going to test five medications together. So who knows what was going on in my body from taking 5 meds plus, weekly allergy shots for two years. But that’s another part of the story that’s in my book. That’s why I said earlier, I had become ensnared by the Pharma.

The spiritual path

What I can say is there’s two paths you can go down–you can choose spirituality. You can choose to get right with God, so to speak. You can choose to live like Jesus. Be like Jesus. Develop the virtues and attributes of someone that’s in heaven. But do it now while you’re on earth. You can choose from any number of diets like the raw vegan diet or a macro, or vegetarian diet, where you’re predominately eating whole clean foods, organic, sustainably sourced. You can do all those things and feel well, but if you’re missing out on your spiritual aspects, which would be beautiful time alone time when you’re praying and or meditating where you’re not asking for anything, you aren’t living in WHOLENESS.

Gratitude and Thanksgiving to Creator

When you’re giving material things up, living simply, not longing for stuff (or even people), not attaching to things, and when you’re living in gratitude, that’s getting WHOLE.

When you’re dancing in worship to your Creator, and you’re being thankful to your ancestors, your parents–without whom, having lived their lives, succeeded in overcoming the many obstacles they must have faced in their life–you wouldn’t be here. WOW! That’s awakening. If you’re not giving gratitude things to those folks every day, you’re missing you’re missing out on a component.

So I put together something called Integrated Spiral because I’m balancing and integrating ALL of this every day. But the point is, if you can do these things, live your beliefs and turn them into Practices, you don’t need to worry about being perfect. Just do your practices every day.

Do certain practices that bring health back into your body, as well as imbue spirit into your body. Honor the directions there’s more than four honor the season. Dress for the seasons eat with the seasons, it local foods. Spend time with family and friends and relatives and babies children. You’re not a person if you’re a person that doesn’t like children or can’t seem to relate with children learn you know, give it some time, practices. Talk with people that are from different countries and different backgrounds, different cultures. Open your mind, open your perspective. Change your perspective. Expand your consciousness and never forget that We Are All Connected. And what you do on your side of the tapestry affects someone on the other side of the tapestry when you pull that thread and again and I say give thanks. The best prayer that you can ever say is Thank You when you say it with intention and genuine authenticity. Thank you. Everything Resolves to Gratitude in the end, you’ll see much love and many blessings in all ways.

First use of Otter: Shout out to Queen-Kimmie and Shawn7 of The BOSS Effect podcast, Cheryl Guidry, CBD, Alzheimer’s, Dance of Energy, and Omniscience

This is a shout out to Otter as they are transcribing this, as I’m talking while I’m driving, and it looks like it’s working. So that’s good because I wasn’t sure because of where the phone was sitting in the car. I edited later and added image and URL links. Well, hello everybody. My name is Sheila Murrey. And if you’re reading this, you’re already aware of who I am and the name of my blogs: The Wholly Integrated Self and Being Wholly Vibrant (where I encourage everyone to Take it upon yourself to live a wholly vibrant life). And you can find it at SheilaMurrey.net. That’s Murrey with an EY. ❤️🦋🌀🎼 And I’ve picked up that little tip to sing it out from my friends and podcasters, Queen-Kimmie Tyson (she sings her name out as Kimmie with an IE). Shout out to her husband Shawn7 too–I like to hear him sing also, but he’s a rapper. And I don’t listen to rap quite as much as I do other styles of music. I love your voice too Shawn7, and your easy going style. So what I would like to talk about today is podcasting. I have been listening to Queen-Kimmie and Shawn7s podcast on my drive to and now, from Miami today, which is about four hours down from where we live in Bradenton, Florida. I’ve had time today to listen to many of their podcast episodes and pick up valuable information. Queen-Kimmie and Shawn7s podcast is called, The BOSS Effect. B O S S stands for bold, outspoken, soulful storytelling. You can find their podcast on whatever podcast player you use. I highly recommend you check out several or all of their episodes because they’re so fun. They’re so authentic. They ask great questions of the folks they interview. On most episodes they play a fun 10k game with guests which really lets you know a little bit more about how the guest speaker does their internal processing. I’ve loved listening to each of these because when a person is put on the spot and they’re asked how to spend $100 without borrowing any money from any friends using only a beater truck and their skills, to make $10k in 10 days for themselves. I mean that’s that’s the kind of question that really makes your brain work. You know, you don’t just sit and meditate necessarily and go into a sort of LaLa land mental state, all calm and restful, when trying to answer those kinds of questions, right? When you go to work on a question like that, your brain goes to work. And one of our mutual friends Cheryl Guidry (when they interviewed her), she talked about CBD–C as in Cat, B as boy, and D as in dog. CBD is a special oil or substance derived from hemp, which is a sister to marijuana but there’s no THC in hemp. So you if you do get any THC, it’s a very miniscule amount in this oil. But what this oil does, and I’m circling back to the brain because I do spiral thoughts (when your mind kind of goes in circles), getting to my point–when you want to improve your brain power (to answer a question like how you would earn $10,000 in 10 days. Well, your brain is like a machine. Thinking can be called machination, right? It’s machining to calculate and come up with strategize, devise all these things. So it’s not in a relaxed state. The CBD oil that I’m talking about helps improve brain cognition! Cheryl Guidry talked about CBD–find her company link here. And my daughter also sells CBD oil for a well-respected company: check it out here. When you take the CBD oil, over time, (I literally take only two or three drops of the CBD oil every day, or every other day), the benefits seem to build. I may forget to take it a day or two. It’s fine. I start taking it again. And it’s like my brain functions like a car with eight cylinders, and all eight cylinders are firing versus a car with eight cylinders in the engine and only six cylinders or maybe even four are firing. You know I wouldn’t get very far right and the car would run very smoothly if it was only running on half power. Or two thirds power. So my point is, if you have any issue in wanting to improve your brain, power or cognition, yes, reach out to Cheryl Guidry or click this link (compare the two brands) because CBD is life changing. I will say, the reason I first started to even explore taking CBD was because my mother had Alzheimer’s. The last probably 20 years of her life. It was very slow. It was a very slow decline but the last five years of her life, her quality of life diminished very quickly. And the last of those last five years my dad was her sole caregiver. So I looked for things that could help both of them–my dad as caregiver and also my mom–to help her get maybe 10 or 20% of her cognition back, but unfortunately I found CBD just weeks before she passed. I had just started taking it for myself and wanted to be the guinea pig to make sure it would be okay to give her because my mother was very sensitive. AB RH negative blood type made my mother very sensitive to everything–she wasn’t able to take penicillin, for instance. Just very sensitive to chemicals, and anything synthetic and toxins which we all know we were all exposed to toxins in one way or another everyday. Point is my grandmother had Alzheimer’s (or some form of dementia) when she passed away. That would have been my mother’s mother and my mother’s older sister. So with Alzheimer’s in my family that close, I really knew that I needed to amp up my approach to improving my brain power. I work in technology. So when they say just work a puzzle every day to maintain brain health, I do. I troubleshoot every day on the computer. So I’ve got that piece down. And I love MCT oil, which is a form of coconut oil. I love coconut so that’s not an issue for me, but not everybody loves coconut (and MCT sometimes still has a bit of coconut flavor). CBD gives you a quick, easy way to improve your brain. It’s not inexpensive, but doesn’t cost a lot when you only take a few drops a day. I’m not even taking a dropper full. Which, if I was it would probably last me 30 days or 60 days but I don’t take much, so it lasts me for literal months, probably six months per bottle. I spend maybe 50 to $75 on a bottle, so that gives you just some idea. Don’t quote me on CBD oil prices because it also depends on the strength that you buy. Maybe 500 milligram, 1000, milligram, 1500, milligram, that kind of thing. So I just take a very minimal milligram and a minimal dosage. And I can tell if I don’t take it for a couple of weeks. I’ll start walking into a room going Why did I walk in here? But by taking this every day, or like I said even every other day. I don’t have those moments. I don’t have the brain fog. I don’t have those senior moments, as they call them. So again, I love what I do as far as my job. And the last few years I’ve been really thankful to be supporting our US veterans, but when my project with the VA ended, I thought I was gonna be laid off. I started actually for my own business on the side. But you all know that. IntegratedSpiral.com Probably a couple years ago now, actually. But then COVID happened and I wasn’t laid off when I had initially been told I would which was great because I got to work for the last couple of years for the VA continuing to work on computers from home which is what I enjoy. And I get paid well I mean I went to school for this and have degrees as well as a 30 plus year career in technology. So it’s not something that I thumb my nose at or want to throw away to become an full-time entrepreneur. But there are things aside from tech aside from computers that I love, which would be my spiritual writing my spiritual mentoring. I’d love to meditate more. I love to talk with people and have real and authentic and down to earth conversations with people even when they disagree with me about who God is where God is what God is, because I don’t believe are in a human form that will ever understand. Anyway, we’ll never understand the mind of God but I love talking about it. I love putting my body into a space of learning and absorbing not only what others tell me, but what I hear myself say because it’s often nothing that I’ve thought of–it just drops into my mind. I don’t call myself a medium, channel or any such labels. The words simply F-L-O-W from Spirit through me. I then get the feeling of what we call, GodBumps. And there’s some other folks that I’ve connected with on Facebook talk about the sensation of GodBumps as well! They wrote a book about it. Their book is called GodBumps you can search for it (authors Davie and Joyce Pfaffle). Join their Facebook group called, GodBumps–I’m on there too! Davie shared their links: My YouTube channel where 135 & counting videos that gave me GodBumps are: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCB0DBA31EE780C72 The only requirement for this group is to have posts be about GodBumps. This is where we share what gives us GodBumps, tingles, goosebumps, visions and other sensations from Spirit. http://flowlifeflow.com/godbumps.htm is where you can find out more about GodBumps and the Kindle link for our “GodBumps” book. My blogs about GodBumps: https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/09/27/first-blog-post/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/26/how-godbumps-guide-me/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/how-do-we-get-the-godbumps-going/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/18/the-divine-incoming-love/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/17/guidance-through-how-you-feel/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/15/ever-get-godbumps-reading-a-book/ https://godbumpscom.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/what-level-of-godbumps-are-you-in/ It’s just an amazing journey when you like to dabble in metaphysical things. When you are drawn to nature as the basis of your religion not that we’re worshipping the created. We’re worshipping the Creator through what has been created not through books, necessarily, although we use books and scriptures as sacred text, but also sacred sites and things that are tangible that we can feel and touch see and smell and taste them have been here for 1000s of years. I mean, things that were written down have been mistranslated and I think we all know and understand that things can be lost in translation, the meaning of words can be lost. So we’re skewed skewed just enough that is a one word. Now if you take one Holy Bible scripture that has one word and that is so limiting and divisive that you can form other religions just by using that one word and that one word is only if you can do that with the power of one word, just imagine how powerful those written texts are. And if you get that one word wrong then how far off the path do you go? And does your life become and I don’t want to wake up in the grand beyond one day and go my complete the whole path that I was on was wrong. But you know what, in the worst case scenario even if that happened, God is still an entity and a force to create creative source of energy that we can barely grasp the concept of, and I believe that God or omniscience as I call it, God would totally take care of that because omniscience sees everything omniscience is the field the unified field that puts everything together that allows everything to be put together and created right so the energy creates and the energy is the foundation as well for all of the creation to sit and stand upon. That’s how I view it. And when I start talking about that subject, that’s what I want to spend the rest of my days on. After I retire from tech whenever that is, whether that’s this year or next year, or when I turned 62 or 65, I’ll coach. On the side, I do coach people or mentor, but I prefer to use the term facilitate because it’s really a facilitation. Remember John Travolta’s character in the movie, Phenomenon? Go back and watch the part where he does the energy dance with the spoon at the yard sale. You know Kreskin, years ago when I was a kid, Kreskin on TV used to bend spoons I think your yellers others, they would bend spoons. But John Travolta in Phenomenon takes a spoon with his finger (without touching it) and he makes the spoon kind of do a little circle or dance. And I said that’s it right there. It’s a dance of energy. We are all dancing with Source Energy every single day. Everything we think everything we say. We breathe in spirit. We breathe out a mixture of our soul, which is in our blood mixed with that air that we had breathe in. So we’re, we’re mixing spirit with soul in our body every time we breathe and we’re impacting other people’s lives. Every time we breathe every time we speak, whether we know it or not. So when we can glimpse that and have a tiny more bit of awareness, we become a little bit more responsible about what we’re reading, what we’re watching who we’re conversing with what we’re saying. Every and I know. I know. The phrase that may come to mind now is don’t sweat the small stuff, but it’s all small stuff. And I believe all the small stuff matters because we’re created from small stuff, molecules, atoms, the nucleus, the nuclei, the neuro peptides, the neutrinos, that’s that’s where I was going with that neutrinos are one of the smallest particles that physics that science has found. Physicists say that 10,000 neutrinos go through our bodies because our bodies are not solid. They’re soluble. Every second 10,000 neutrino particles every second bombard our bodies, and they go through our bodies. So can you imagine we’re kind of like this mushy collection of molecules that’s bound together by what? Blood bone? muscle tissue ligaments? Yeah. It’s really fascinating. When you think about we’re like this meat sack walking around. And our blood is formed from being a fetus in a mother and whomever she is or was and then her parents and their parents and their parents. And their parents. I mean, wait, life has continued on this planet anyway, as far as we know, from perhaps two people or more, you know, and then you are sitting here as a result of all these people that have come before you so when you hear people say we stand on Grand shoulders are great shoulders, to know what we know and to advance science tech and center that is so very true. We wouldn’t be here without our parents, their parents and so on and so forth. The Native Americans have a beautiful belief system that speaks to that. That’s many of them call it seven generations. So that’s where they get that little dishwashing liquid, you know, company that was formed, Seventh Generation, right because we want to take care to not overreach what we do on this planet so that seven generations from now (after us), people will still have things to enjoy, like we have to enjoy today. But listen, I’ve went on longer than I imagined that I would when I began this. And I really want to say that I appreciate you all for reading and for listening. And I am IN Joy. I am in gratitude, as Everything Resolves to Gratitude. Take it upon yourself to live a holy, vibrant life because We Are ALL Connected. It all matters. Amen. Namaste.
