What could happen in your life if...
A new year is upon us. Are you excited about the possibilities it brings?
While making your New Year "resolutions," how about giving this idea some
thought. It could change your life!
Notes & Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D. - Founder of Gakati'yi
Wishes for a Happy New Year
With Infinite Gratitude for All That Is Past, with Infinite Service to All
That Is Present, with Infinite Responsibility to All That Is Future, We Focus
Now on the Creation of All That Is... Generating the Best Possible New Year!
[Dr. Black's New Year version of the Buddha's 'Gestalt Prayer.'] What we
focus on expands! There is an idea that it's important what we do on New
Year's Eve because whatever we are doing and whatever we are attending to
during that time influences and predisposes what the new year will be like.
So, let us have thoughts of love, what the Course in Miracles calls "the
thoughts of God," on New Year's Eve. Let us be with people we want to be
with all year long, playing, working, healing, creating new realities which
will become permanent and joyful memories of the Soul. Buddha, in the famous
statement just quoted, holds us collectively responsible for our collective
future. We have just been through lessons about the importance of one vote
and the whole process of voting and being counted. The results of the
census indicates that there are more of us than ten years ago. What
collective memories do we desire? It appears we have enough gloomers and
doomers already. How about being a boomer and a zoomer? Focus on love,
joy, peace, creativity and healing. If enough of us do enough of it, they
will boom, zoom and expand!
Buddha's statement guides us to another way to create a positive future:
rendering service in the present. Love gives because that is its nature and
it cannot do or be otherwise. The ego gives in order to get. Let the New
Year be one of rendering loving service to others. Make new choices during
this period. Choose to give more, to someone different or unexpected.
Shake up the patterns, and serve.

Natural Approaches to Combating Colds and the Flu
Well, yesterday, Dec. 31, 2000, we were blessed with two feet of beautiful, powdery snow here in blizzard-swept New Jersey. Unfortunately, along with its beauty and sleigh-riding fun, snow and chilly temperatures often bring many cases of colds and the flu. Below are some helpful remedies, that I have come across while working in the local health food store for the past six years and as a scientist for the past twenty years. These natural products may help you combat the pesky bugs, should you find yourself or your loved ones coming down with the winter blahs. Most of the products may be found at your local health food store.
Prevention Keeping yourself de-stressed during the holiday season is a challenge for many of us, but through prayer (sending positive thoughts and intentions out), and through meditation (clearing the mind of distracting thoughts, so that inner messages can be received), I find it easier to achieve inner peace and emotional calm. So, through prayer and meditation, (and marking things OFF my to-do list, instead of adding things to it), I keep my immune system functioning properly, so that my body can properly defend itself against any bugs which may come my way.
To help keep my immune system in tip-top condition from a physical point of view, I take a product called Transfer Factor by 4-Life Research.
Research indicates that the first time a mother breastfeeds her infant, her whole immune system memory is transferred to the child through a clear fluid called colostrum Out of the colostrum, the effective memory molecule, called transfer factor, was purified by 4-Life Research. When taken orally, it has proven to boost the immune system by approximately 103% !
Personally, I was down with the flu a few years ago. I was lying flat on my back and achy for 5 days. I had planned a dinner date with my friend and was planning to cook a nice dinner for him, when I cancelled. He came over anyway, bringing with him a bottle of Transfer Factor. He gave me five capsules and I was happily preparing dinner about 1 hour later.
Another product by 4-Life Research is Transfer Factor Plus. It contains transfer factor, as well as a combination of other powerful immune boosting components such as IP6, Beta Glucans, Aloe Vera, and a proprietary blend of glyconutrients, which enhance the innate immune system and increase NK cell activity over baseline by 248%. It can be used in conditions where the immune system is severely compromised. Please e-mail me at dawnawolfe@yahoo for more information.
Viruses The flu, (short for influenza), is caused by a group of tiny viruses which divide, adapt, change and mutate quickly inside the human body in order to survive. That is why a new version of the “flu shot” is developed each year. I prefer natural remedies to injecting foreign substances into my body, therefore, again, my number-one remedy against colds and the flu is prevention.
However, try as we may, many of us still get caught by the little critters. And standard allopathic medicine does not offer many ways to directly combat viruses. It is well-known that antibiotics only fight bacterial infections…not viruses. When you find yourself feeling aching, dizzy, feverish and have a runny nose, what are the first products to try?
If you catch the flu early enough, and you think it is definitely a virus, you may want to try the homeopathic remedy, Occillococcinum , which comes in four vials and must be taken early-on in the symptomology, with strict compliance to timing and dosages. It has no side effects and is gentle and mild. My personal experience with it has been good, however, again, it must be taken early. The tiny lactose/slightly sweetened homeopathic pellets are loved by children and not difficult to convince them to take.
Black Elderberry extract (which comes in lozenges and syrup) was developed by a virologist in Israel and clinically tested to prove its anti-viral capabilities. It is sold under the name of Sambucolâ. When taken as directed, I have found it to be extremely powerful and effective against viruses of many types.
The amino acid, lysine, is highly effective against viruses, as it inhibits viral replication. It is especially effective against oral cold sores caused by the herpes virus.
When taken orally in a high dosages such as 2000-3000 mgs. for a couple of days, it often completely rids one of mouth sores. If the above dosage is taken at the first sign of a cold sore, (when you first feel heat and throbbing at the site), the lysine will prevent the cold sore from forming altogether. I would combine this with relaxation techniques or the Bach Flower Essence, Rescue Remedy, (calming and centering, taken a few drops under the tongue), as the cause of the virus is usually stress-related. Conditions causing cold sores are usually over-exposure to heat (sunburn or wind damage), over-exposure to cold temperatures, or stressful events such as weddings, funerals, holidays, and general emotional trauma. I always take lysine at the first feeling of coming down with any virus, in combination with a multivitamin, vitamin C, proper rest, and lots of fluids.
Colds The common cold is frequently caused by bacterial infection of some sort. Although allopathic medicine is strong in effectively implementing antibiotics in severe cases of bacterial infection, sometimes a natural approach is effective, without stripping the body of its natural bacterial flora in the gut, and going through several experimental courses of antibiotics.
The herb, Goldenseal, (Hydrastis Canadensis) has strong anti-bacterial properties, and when used at high enough dosages, can kill even the strongest infections. I like combine it with Echinacea, equal dosages of 300mg, 3x/day. (Do not take Goldenseal when pregnant). A combination of Fenugreek and Thyme call Fenuthyme by Nature’s Way, is great for breaking up lung and chest congestion. 2-3, 2-3 x/day is recommended.
Colloidal Silver, 50ppm,(Innovative Natural Products) is an excellent anti-bacterial and can be used both externally or internally (the clear, tasteless liquid can be added to juices for the elderly or children) against infections.
Again, Black Elderberry extract is great and fine in combination with the above herbs and may be good in cases where a combination bacterial and viral state exist.
Homeopathics such as Mercuris Vivus, 30C can be used for reddened right-sided sore throats, Hepar Sulph. Calc. 30C for coughs with runny noses, Belladonna, 30C, for fevers and inflammation, Gelsemium, 30C for a headache accompanying the flu, Antimonium Tart, 30C for coughs accompanied by mucous in the chest, and Phosporus, 30C, for general sore throats. Please note that in order for the homoeopathic remedy to work, patient symptoms must match the remedy exactly. Children love taking the pellets, which is an added bonus for parents.
Finally, I love the Herbal Cough syrups containing wild cherry bark and the Homeopathic Cough syrup for children and adults by Fenuthyme and Tafel (B &T) for breaking up chest congestion, whether caused by colds, flu, pneumonia or post-operative conditions.
Hopefully everyone will have a Happy, Healthy New Year!!!
In the spirit of Gakati'yi, here is one of my favorite quotations -- from the inauguration speech of Nelson Mandela -- a man who became one of the greatest leaders of our time after being imprisoned for 27 years. I will never forget standing in the cell on Robbin Island where he spent 18 of those 27 years and trying to imagine how a person could come through that ordeal and radiate such love and compassion for the world....
From the Inauguration Address of Nelson Mandela, 1994--
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous. Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone, and as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
God neither punishes nor rewards. ...In the long run, no one judges us but ourselves and no one condemns us but ourselves. ....We are our own reward and our own punishment. --Ernest Holmes The Science of Mind
