Seven Year Itch


Tomorrow’s Father’s Day, so here’s a thought about the universal impulse we call fatherliness.

I imagine a lot of us (fathers) find this a day of reflection.  I, as a dad of five, sure do.

I’ve been lucky… all five of my children are happy healthy, productive and take good care of themselves and their families.  We all get along and I feel loved by them and truly blessed.

Despite the children’s success, I am haunted by the things I could have done to have been a better dad.  As a busy entrepreneur, I was away a lot.  So I try to make up for that now that I am not so busy with my career.

Having more time with the kids and grandkids feels good.

That’s one reason I recoiled at an article “Why I Hope to Die at 75” (1) in Atlantic Magazine.

The article says: An argument that society and families—and you—will be better off if nature takes its course swiftly and promptly

But here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but is nonetheless deprived. It robs us of our creativity and ability to contribute to work, society, the world. It transforms how people experience us, relate to us, and, most important, remember us. We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.

By the time I reach 75, I will have lived a complete life. I will have loved and been loved. My children will be grown and in the midst of their own rich lives. I will have seen my grandchildren born and beginning their lives. I will have pursued my life’s projects and made whatever contributions, important or not, I am going to make. And hopefully, I will not have too many mental and physical limitations.

Here’s why I feel this message is far off the mark.

Passing at 75 might make sense IF just the physical aspect of living were all that mattered.  The second 60 years of our life (assuming we live to 120 & I’ll get to that in a moment) do not require physical strength and I sure would not want to start a family or begin a career just to pay for my physical existence at age 60 or 70.

Yet age 60 and beyond may be the most important of our lives.  They may be the spiritual years that really matter.

That’s one reason the biggest of my three reports on natural health is about nutrition.  I believe the importance of good nutrition is not so much to be physically stronger but to be cleaner and more balanced overall so our spirituality can grow.

There are many ancient disciplines that suggest we should live fulfilling loves far beyond 60 or 70 or even 80, 90 and 100. 

One such discipline is astrology.

Interestingly, interest in this discipline is growing.   A New York Times “Astrology and Millennials” says the interest is surging.

The article says: We’re living in the middle of a religious revival; it’s just that the movements that are rising are not what we normally call “religion.” The first rising movement is astrology. According to a 2018 Pew poll, 29 percent of Americans say they believe in astrology. That’s more than are members of mainline Protestant churches.

This surge in belief is primarily among the young. According to a National Science Foundation survey, 44 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds say that astrology is somewhat or very “scientific.” Unsurprisingly, online horoscope sites are booming. Stella Bugbee, editor of The Cut, told The Atlantic that in 2017 the typical horoscope got 150 percent more traffic than it had the year before.

Astrology helps explain why a life of 120 years makes sense as nature seems to have somewhat carved human life into seven year periods, with each period having a purpose.

The first seven years for example is aimed at bonding us with our mother.  No other relationship is as important during this time.
At around age seven, we shift another purpose that is aimed bonding us with our peers of same gender.

For example, take a batch of ten year old boys and girls to a dance and watch them each rush to opposite ends of the room.  Girls are sugar, spice and everything nice. Boys, spiders, snails and puppy dog tails.  Adults have to invent games to get the boys to interact with the girls.

Then at 14 we shift again.  Age 14-21 bonds us with peers of opposite gender.  Take the same boys and girls to a dance when they are 16 and watch out.  You’ll still need adults, but as chaperones!

Age 21 to 28 is aimed at bonding us with our mate.  Many societies recognizes 21 as a major coming of age period.

The seven year cycles dramatically affect the way we think.

Imagine this.  If a five year old sees a glass of milk, his or her thought is, “Let’s have a drink with mommy”.

A ten year old is more likely to think “Let’s get together with my gang (girls for girls and guys for guys) and have a party”.

The sixteen year old thinks, “Let’s have a glass of milk with my date”!

Same glass of milk.  Quite different thoughts.  Totally different purpose.

Indian Vedic and Andean philosophy generally suggests that after a certain number of these seven year shifts,  we should leave the material aspect of our life and become more spiritual.  The Andean belief holds that there are nine seven year cycles.  When we finish the first nine cycles at age 63, we start the cycles again, but this time at a spiritual rather than material level.

Our first seven year cycles bonds us with our physical material mother.  The 10th cycle at age 63 to 70, enlightens us with the maternal spirit.

It’s interesting to note that the 8th cycle is all about connecting us to the soul, and the 9th connecting to the infinite being.

If we live through two sets of nine seven year cycles we’ll be aged 119 which would leave us to shift into our second bonding with the  infinite being at age 120. This pretty well matches the concept in Indian astrology that suggests we should live to be 120.

This also ties into the Indian Vedic idea that there are seven levels of spiritual enlightenment. Our first series of cycles takes care of our material life. By the time we are 64, we have grown up, become educated, raised our own families, saved enough to leave making money behind and gained enough experience to understand the law of diminishing returns… to see that just having more is not enough and that there is more than just the material stuff in life.

The second set of nine seven year cycles moves us towards deeper spirituality.

We go through the process of growing up, procreating, caring for our family and then in the second series of cycles go through a similar process in a spiritual journey.

Our work… our service in this second set of cycles sets us on a path to enlightenment.

Because this huge shift to spirituality isn’t about consumerism, it doesn’t make money for the commercial interests, so there is not much support in Western society.

Commerce tries to convince those who reach 60 or so, to start all over again.  Thus we see the “Mid Life Crisis” or “Seven Year Itch”.

Merri and I, now well into our 70s, still feel the urge to work. You may too, if you have passed the 60 year mark, but now the fulfillment comes more from whatever positive good we can create rather than the money.

At 64, after nine seven years cycles, we really can begin again… living a full life at a more spiritual level.  We can work where “action is our goal… reward truly not our concern”… work to complete our relationship with reality, rather than our bank account.

This theory could have some profound implications because it suggests that every seven years the way we think, our information processing system and even our thoughts change.

So if on this Father’s Day you are having seven year itches, act on the desires you feel that will help you remain in tune with nature.

Our bodies and souls are quite miraculous and few events take place are by accident. The way we age, the way our thoughts change may be because that is the way our lives are meant to unfold.

Secret of the Hogberry

Gain Amazing Health Benefits with the Hogberry

More than 100 studies have found that physical activity can lower cancer risk and even help cure cancer.  Fortunately researchers asked why and one answer became clear.  Body fat.

Studies showed that those who were most active have a 25% lower chance of developing cancer because reduced body fat is possible pathway to lowering cancer risk.  Time Magazine has some good information on the relationship between exercise and reducing cancer.  Have a look below if you want to research more deeply (1).

intermittent fastng

Graph showing benefits of intermittent fasting.

Fortunately there is a little known way to reduce body fat that does not even require exercise.  I’ll share more on this secret in a moment.

First, body fat and cancer?   Let’s ask why?

Part of the answer is toxicity.

Healthy bodies naturally and regularly remove water-soluble toxins from the body.  Our blood and kidneys flush them away.

Fat-soluble toxins such as metals, pesticides, preservatives, other pollutants are harder to flush out of the system.   Fat-soluble toxins must become water-soluble before the body can get rid of them.  The liver can do this conversion (bile emulsifies fat-souble toxins into water-soluble).  This process requires healthy digestive and detox pathways.  When they become imbalanced, fat-soluble toxins are stored in fat cells and brain cells instead.   These toxins can remain for decades and create health problems.

The fat stored toxins cause oxidation (free radical damage) and degeneration as well as mutation.  Toxins in the fatty tissue of the brain become neurotoxins that can cause cognitive problems and a host of mental and brain imbalances.

The way to avoid this storage of deadly toxicity is to keep stress down, while digestion and detoxification pathways remain good.

Burn Fat to Burn Toxins

When you burn fat not primarily for weight loss, (though you will lose weight) but for purification, you can turn on the body’s detox fuel.  Fat metabolism is the body’s natural form of energy.   Fat metabolism provides a more steady energy than glucose metabolism and flushes fat cells free of toxins.  As the toxicity drops, the nervous system has reduced stress and will naturally burn fat instead of sugar.

Intermittent fasting is one way to get the body to burn fat.  There is a way of eating that helps reduce weight, improve energy and purify the body as it returns to a state of natural health.

This is a simple easy way to improve and restore feeling good, but works best when combined with better nutrition, moderate exercise and a purification program that helps make sure that the body is not overwhelmed with too much purification at once.

This is why I have written a short report entitled “The FAST Way to Better Health” that features one special tea so an intermittent fasting routine becomes doable and enjoyable.

The Key is in the Hogberry

Intermittent fasting is guaranteed to work, if you have even reasonable nutrition, moderate physical activity and stick with it.  The problem is in the sticking.  When the brain is hooked on metabolizing sugar it can be very demanding.   When we try going an extended period without a sugar, the brain will have a hissy fit and demand that we eat or drink something sweet or starchy or alcoholic.

Sticking through a fast just does not work when the brain pulls out its bag of tricks, from sweet whispers (just one chocolate won’t hurt- but it will!)  all the way to chills sweats and dizziness.   Intermittent fasting, without help, can require enormous discipline that most of us cannot maintain long enough.

I know, I tried intermittent fasting several times and failed.  Then I accidentally stumbled across the secret of the Hogberry that not only stops hunger but more importantly speeds up the process of switching from sugar metabolism to fat metabolism AND assists in the purifying process.  Once I tried using this support for the pancreas (among other things),  intermittent fasting became satisfying and enjoyable.  I am passing 45 days in this routine, and the steady energy just gets better and better.  I am not minding the reduced weight and better fitting clothing either!

“The FAST Way to Better Health” explains how intermittent fasting is not real fasting.  One does not stop eating with an intermittent fast, not even for a day.  You learn why this is such a healthy way to lose weight and detoxify fat cells to reduce risks of cancer, heart disease diabetes and senility.

More important you learn how to feel better almost from the very first day.  Reduce stress, gain smooth steady energy without 10:30am and 3:00pm  droops. Find out how to avoid being hungry right after you eat and how to make the cravings for sweets and junk food all but disappear.

I will send you this report “The FAST Way to Better Health” that reveals the secret of the Hogberry, FREE when you order my Shamanic Natural Health reports described below.

This is the only way to attain this report.  Intermittent fasting can make your life better. It works best when you use the nutritional, exercise and purification tips outlined in these three reports.  As with all my reports and courses, satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.  I want to be sure  that the information in “The FAST Way to Better Health” works for you.  The valuable knowledge you’ll gain in these reports works better when the nutrition, purification and exercise reports are combined so I have made a special offer.

I have created three shamanic health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special offer I want to send you a special report on how you can gain better natural health with the hogberry along with three other reports that reveal secrets of health and longevity.

The Secret Chargemaster Revealed

Few places can destroy health and ruin a lifetime of savings faster than a hospital.  We are at risk from pocketbook surgery and the incredibly dangerous “Chargemaster”.   See below why chargemasters were normally kept secret, how a 2018 federal law requires their disclosure and how to gain protection from their abuse.

How can it be that medical costs are so high? Why is it so difficult to figure out the charge for a medical procedure?

The government in trying to help answer these questions began requiring hospitals from Jan. 1, 2019 to post their chargemaster lists.

These enormous lists of products and services ranging from a single aspirin up to a complicated surgery does little to answer these questions.

This very weak attempt to create transparency only provides data that is difficult to decipher and is mind-boggling for the consumer.

Chargemasters can include tens of thousands of items and procedures, with technical names and abbreviations that few can understand.

Plus when one goes into the hospital no one knows exactly what items and procedures will be necessary since treatment can vary widely based on the age and health and condition.

So listing the chargemaster isn’t helpful or meaningful, but simply gives hospitals one more excuse for outrageous costs… “but we listed what these costs”.

Modern American health care is under pressure.  Despite horrendous costs, the system is faltering.  At times the care is more dangerous than the illness.  For example hospitals are the worst place to have a heart attack.  The University of North Carolina, did a study and found that 40% of the patients who had hearts attacks in the hospital died before being discharged.  (The study compared that with only a 4% death rate for those who had heart attacks outside the hospital.)

Plus it was recently revealed that medical endoscopy scopes in hospitals were infecting patients with deadly drug-resistant bacteria.  The facts about this had not been previously disclosed.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that hospital-acquired infections alone kill 99,000 people each year.  Here is an even worse hospital mortality fact.

CDC Stats

Click on image.

The image above shows a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.  Hospital-acquired infections alone kill 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital is worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a 2013 report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is because of the secrets in the chargemaster and the people who do not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen .  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

hospital bill

The hospital bill above is part of a story about a $110,000 infection and why hospital “chargemasters” are often secret.  This story tells how one person with resistant devastating infection ran up a $110,000 hospital bill only to find that Medicare would only pay $2,300 from treatment of infection.

Secret of the Chargemasters

Being in a hospital can kill as well as cure.  There are odds on that.  What is more certain is that hospitals can kill our finances.

The ‘average’ cost of hospital care is rising because the leading hospitals are front runners in figuring out how to amass market power so they can  raise prices and decrease competition.  A codeine pill that costs $20 at a hospital costs 50 cents at Rite-Aid or Walgreens.  Hospitals have “chargemasters” a price list created by each hospital, that typically has more than ten thousand entries, so almost nothing — even an aspirin, a bag of IV fluid, or a visit from a physical therapist to help a patient get out of bed — is free.  However, those lists are usually secret.

Hospital Failure

The Commonwealth Fund in its latest survey on overall health care ranked US healthcare dead last compared to 10 major countries.  Despite being worst, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times have all warned about huge, increasingly costly, health care changes.  There are enormous problems in hospitals and chances are they are going to get worse.

When it comes to health care, we may well be on our own.  The very people, institutions and establishments that  we should rely on may actually hurt rather than help our health.  Shamanic Wisdom accumulated over the millennia can fill the gap.

The way to escape the dangers of the high cost deteriorating health care system, is to not need it.  Declare health independence… and create natural good health.  There are dozens of simple, really low costs steps that can improve health… eating, purification, exercise, even the way we think and don’t think when we sleep.

Ancient shamanic wisdom from around the world can help us reduce our risks of poor health care and help us fight the ever rising costs.

For nearly 50 years my wife Merri and I have lived around the world and checked out just about every source on natural health care.  We have spent years living with natural health care insiders, and trying what they offered.

We took thousands of readers to Ecuador.  Many met the shamans there and we saw some health miracles take place (including a miracle with me!)

Since not everyone can go to Ecuador or travel the world, we have created three Shamanic Natural Health Care Reports that can help improve our natural health.  They are concise and to the point.  In 15 minutes the first report shows exactly how to start preparing for better health and more energy.

We do not have to depend on the health care and health insurance monopolies for better natural health… or cave into a healthcare system that can put us at risk and charge outrageous prices at the same time.

Our shamanic health reports provide information on how to use ancient health care systems to become more healthy –  self sufficient – providing our own good health.

The first report is “Sunski”, the Andean word for good eating, for maximum nutrition and purification.

We started the series with eating because so many of our readers have found the Andean shamanic nutrition helps them kick start their health with weight trimming.  Here is what a few readers have written to us:

These are typical notes I have received from readers.

*  “Hi Merri,  things have worked out well.  I am healthier than I have ever been, lost 32 pounds since arriving in Sept.  Bought a house and have finished the first level.  What an amazing place you have found”.  Thanks Phil – Ecuador

*  “We’ve decided to change our eating patterns since we came home because we so enjoyed our meals at the farm and how we felt physically.  Thanks so much. With love” JJ New – Chicago

*  “After eating all that delicious food I gained 3 lbs but it must be in muscle weight as my pants fit loosely!”  R Vickers – New Mexico

*  “The food was so delicious and I thought I ate a lot, but during the week I lost six pounds!”  WB Australia.

Good eating is the first step towards natural health. The first rule of good health is getting the correct nutrition.  The second step is purification of toxins and eating to avoid getting impurities in our body in the first place!

Sunski is a way to eat that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.  Yet Sunski is a delicious, healthy “self defined” cleansing process.  One lesson in Sunski shows how to correct a simple mistake that most of the Western population makes which increases the chances of adding and retaining weight by 84%.

“Sunski” combines lessons about healthy eating that we learned from years of working with ayurvedic health masters and then living with an Ecuador Taita Yatchak and his apprentices.

We lived, worked, farmed, cooked and ate with this Taita Yatchak for years while learning “Sunski”.

shaman

The “Sunski” report has been 50 years and millions of miles of travel in the making.

We’ve invested thousands of hours into learning the skills of health self-reliance and resilience, identifying the best foods and combinations and sifted through loads of seeming contradictions to get to the facts about “do it yourself” longevity and natural health.

But that wasn’t enough – not when our good health is on the line.  So we consulted dozens of top professions who know a lot about natural health.  We spoke with holistic MDs chiropractors, Indian Vidyas, Andean Yatchaks, and other self-reliant natural health experts who live this way every day.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you…  years of research went into these reports.

And we only kept the best of the best: this system is complete – and FAST to learn – so you can get started immediately.

We all need to stay out of hospitals and reduce our exposure to modern medical risks and costs.

Why re-invent the wheel?  Especially when time is NOT on our side.  We’ve already done the hard work for you pulling together the information so you can create better natural, good health.

Imagine… never worrying about what we eat ever again and reducing the risks of hospitalization and health care’s outrageous costs.

A few of the life balancing nutritional tips include how to:

#1: Eat a balance of fat, carbohydrates and protein.

#2: Eat combinations of food for ideal digestion.

#3: Eat clean organic food prepared and served by happy, joyful people.

#4: Eat in good spirits at the right times of day.

#5: Chew in the correct way.

#6: Eat purifying and satisfying meals.

#7:  Adapt eating habits that are suited to individual specific makeup and lifestyle and why such individualized nutrition is better than any specific set plan.

This report includes a complete list of EZ to use recipes that will immediately improve your short term energy… and your long term natural health – so that you never have to guess what foods you need (or rely on the health care establishment  to tell you the truth).

Here are a few facts and health tools you gain:

*  The single biggest constraint you’ll face in your eating habits  – and how you can eliminate it by adding two simple recipes to your Sunski system.

*  How to calculate exactly how much food you need so you don’t over or under build your nutritional plan.

*  A simple solution for making sure that your food delivers what your body needs when you need it.

*  What components you can choose for yourself and how to avoid mass diets that seem to work for every one except… you.

*  The best long term solution for avoiding sugar.

*  Use sweet spices to compensate for stress.

*  Specific types of unique spices that give you the biggest energy bang for your buck.

*  Spices that cleanse and purify.

*  Three changes in your fruit consumption that is a critical component for long term purificatioN.

*  The best times to eat specific foods.

*  How to direct different foods to different parts of the body.

*  Three teas that add a resilience to your natural health system that are easy to make and enjoy at home at a low cost.

*  Why it is good (in fact almost a requirement) to sometimes eat junk food.

This report on nutrition also includes  23 special recipes of quick and easy but perfectly balanced meals and snacks.

Learn how nutritional secrets can help keep you out of the hospital.

These reports focus on how to have good natural health so you can remain independent and avoid costly medical care.  The second report looks at purification and detoxification.

The third report is about exercise… but not the type you would think.

Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

For example this third report unveils one exercise that is a nutritional trick  that has nothing to do with what we eat.  The trick is to energize and coordinate the digestive system by exercising a set of key muscles as we eat.  The body has a number of key muscles that regulate breathing, digestion, circulation, elimination and muscular motion.  The report  reveals an exercise you can do at the dinner table to energize these muscles which in turn coordinate every other muscle and organ in the body.  Eating in this way for example (most of the modern world does not) energizes just one key muscle that regulates part of our ability to burn sugars and fat.

Part of the report focuses on how to have financial balance in investing and business so you can remain independent.

The report looks at oxygenation, coordination, purification, energy boosting, education, occupation and relaxation.

Oxygenation-Coordination:  Learn how to gain extra oxygen with the Llama Walk.

Purification: We look at Andean purification herbs and purifying teas.

Energy Boosting: Eating balanced, correctly prepared organic food and drinking herbal teas designed for body type and body imbalances.

Occupation: Physical labor, suited to your body type and condition range from gardening and animal care to path building and clearing the woods.

Relaxation: Learn how Meditation, L-Thianine and Baroque Music enhance thinking and relieve stress.

Body Types Made EZ:  Learn how they cause and influence nine body types and their imbalances.  Discover seven easy ways to determine your body type and how to keep it in balance.

Healthy Eating Made EZ:  Gain delicious, power packed weight reducing recipes from easy to obtain products from super market foods. Coddle Yourself Egg-High Protein Country Cottage Pie-Low Carb-Veggie Chile & Spaghetti- Weightless Bread-High Mountain Pure Protein Quinoa-Better Oatmeal of Steel- Several Soups for Super Strength-Berry Good Crunch Treat and Waist Less Apple Crumble are just a few.

Exercise for Strength and Better Health Made EZ:  Medicine is dose.  Too much exercise is as bad or worse as not enough. Learn how to let comfort be your exercise guide. Move with momentum-some exercises activate all muscles and provide the benefit of leverage, momentum and convenience so 12 minutes of exercise a day is enough. Blend body and mind-Alpha exercises take you into the zone so you win from the inside out.  Spin and bend-blend exercise secrets from India, the Andes and the East for easy and better health.  The Gentle Touch-if you have to breathe through the mouth you have done too much.

Here is what others have said about this information:

Though I ate more than ever, my weight dropped and I lost two inches off my waist.” – S.H. Oregon

The life path altering effects from the weekend with you and Merri continue. Thank you again. I have begun to change my diet. Bless you!” – D.B. Connecticut

You are indeed a spiritual pioneer, blending disciplines to create tools and resources for success in this new land of opportunity.  Anyone who thinks this is just all about money is missing the real message: This is about life in its most profound implications.” – W.P. Australia

I want to thank you for the wonderful time. I travailed from California to hear you convey your knowledge in the way you do so well, and I wasn’t disappointed.  The amount of information in the sessions was almost overwhelming, but it’s exactly what I went to hear.” – B.R. California

The technical information I gathered was most not new to me, but I like to compliment you for putting it all in the right perspective and to make it very understandable to all.  What was at our opinion one of the most important gaining of these 3 days is the opening of the new world, this new circle of what you call ‘normal’ people! (I call us ‘not normal’ as a matter of respect to the majority.)  But as we know, all is relative and depends at the point of view of each, His spiritual mind and his opinion about the senses of our being.” – E.V. Florida

People who, among other things, are active and productive and creative and resourceful, whose word can be counted upon; People who realize that spirituality DOES NOT mean sitting in a cave contemplating your navel and weaving baskets, nor does it equate in the Western culture with living in abject poverty.  People who realize that abundance is not a dirty word. People who understand that we are here to ENGAGE life, not to submit to circumstances out of fear and ignorance and apathy; People who don’t just use the most current ‘buzz words’ so they can feel like they are part of the group, but who actually DO something… Builders. Thank you for showing up in my life.” – E.W. Nevada

Good health is the most important asset in stressful times.  Beyond the fact that modern health intervention (ie. hospital) can destroy one’s finances, being in good health brings the energy and balance required to make sound investing and business decisions.

Ecuador Mother’s Day Lilies


Fresh Ecuador Mother’s Day lilies and roses are now available to be delivered to your home in the USA. They will be delivered on Tuesday 5th May in the USA only. Final orders can be accepted Thursday April 30th at 10am Eastern time.

Last year Merri surprised me on Father’s Day not with roses but 25 fresh Ecuador Lilies! I was thrilled at their beauty, aroma and endurance. Here are those Ecuador lilies in our home.

This year we purchased Ecuador Easter lilies.  They were delivered April 8.

The Ecuador lily orders are of 25 stems but each stem has three or four buds… so the order delivers about 100 flowers!  There are so many I had to put them in three vases where they were still going strong when I took these shots April 16 none days after delivery.

ecuador-floral-information

They are wonderful, fresh and they last!

Spme of the Easter lilies (though some have passed) are still looking good as I write this on April 23, 15 days after delivery.

Here is one of the three Ecuador floral arrangements six days after delivery, at the entrance to our home…

another on our fire place mantle and…

ecuador-floral-information

the third Ecuador lily arrangement in our dining area.  The aromas were intoxicating!

Even three Ecuador lily arrangements left the vases crowded.  I could have filled five or six vases.

ecuador-floral-information

Wonderful and beautiful.

We asked our flower supplier if he could deliver Ecuador Mother’s Day lilies and he wrote:  The price for lilies is $68 per box.  Each box has 25 oriental lilies.  These are the bigger Easter lilies. We have pinks, pink bicolors and whites.

As with fresh Ecuador roses, we have added $19 to the price so 25 Ecuador Easter lilies is $87.

We will donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order. Just as we do with Ecuador roses…  we lose a couple dollars on each purchase.

You can see why we are happy to donate this at Ecuador rose thanks.

You can order Ecuador Mother’s Lilies here.

Fedex will deliver them directly to you in the USA from Ecuador.  We regret that due to customs difficulties. Fedex will not deliver them in Canada.

Open them. If you are not satisfied that these are truly remarkable lilies, give them back to the Fedex driver and let me know. I’ll give you a full refund.

To assure the refund you must inspect the flowers with Fedex when they are delivered. If you are not satisfied, they must be returned at the time of delivery.

I will forward your order to Roberto Ribadeneira, the rose plantation coordinator who will follow your order from the farm to your home.  He will first email you to make sure you get the color choice you like best and coordinate your delivery time.

If you do not respond to the plantation to indicate a color choice and time, the flower growers will send the best available color combination for the first possible delivery.

As mentioned this is not a deal that helps my pocketbook. I am paying $60 to deliver these roses to you. I donate $20 to the charity. I pay my credit card discount. At the price we charge I am down two or three dollars for each 50 roses. That’s okay…the cause is worthy and Merri and I will be much richer in the heart.

We cannot accept  Ecuador Mother’s Day lily orders after 12 noon Tuesday April 2,2009.  Delivery will be May 5, 2009.

You can order Ecuador Mother’s Day Lilies here.

Ecuador Flower Income


Here is a way to earn income and help the environment and the poor… with Ecuador flowers.

ecuador-flowers

Our last three messages have looked at advice from billionaires Warren Buffet, Li Ka-Shing and T. Boone Pickens on how to use this economic correction to create wealth.

Here are quotes from another billionaire… Geroge Soros  who said:

Markets are constantly in a state of uncertainty and flux and money is made by discounting the obvious and betting on the unexpected.

This is why the current market downturn creates opportunity.   Changes in the  socio-economic paradigm create new unexpected opportunity.  As the establishments crumble, new opportunities are created.

This makes life really exciting (and lucrative) for the business pioneers who accept and embrace change.  Merri and I feel this way every day and hope to share the excitement and opportunity with you.

Soros also said:

I think there’s a lot of merit in an international economy and global markets, but they’re not sufficient because markets don’t look after social needs.   I’m not doing my philanthropic work, out of any kind of guilt, or any need to create good public relations. I’m doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it.

Merri and I could not agree more.  We have been involved in international business for 40 years, but became involved with Land of the Sun Foundation (LOTS) because we want to help the poor beyond business..

Soros’s final sage comment is: The worse a situation becomes the less it takes to turn it around, the bigger the upside.

There are several ways to take advantage of the current economic situation… invest in stocks… real estate… commodities or  to have or start your own business.

This is why I am writing this series on Ecuador business ideas and have focused on the environment and using organic products which helps all three of the problems above.

This is also why we have for the past two years been offering Ecuador roses to help LOTS.

Now we have combined a way for our readers to develop extra income and help the indigenous poor with Ecuador flowers.

Robert Ribadineira, our flower supplier,  has now created a Fresh Flower Party Plan for flowers that can help you earn income as you help the poor.

Party plans have been  a highly successful way to introduce new ideas by displaying and demonstrating a product to those gathered at a party.

Roberto’s Premium Flower Party not only develops income potential and helps the poor but also helps resolve a huge problem that the economic downturn has created in the US.

The problem is that in the last two years nearly 30% of America’s florists have gone out of business.

It is harder and harder to get fresh premium quality flowers.  The new paradigm is that low quality, short lived cut flowers now rule the market.

Roberto’s  Premium Flower Party creates a new, fun and fulfilling way for Americans to have top quality fresh flowers in their homes.

The party plan originated with the  Tupperware company in the early 1950s. Tupperware’s success was widely copied and the idea hosting a social event in homes to demonstrate a product has become a popular and proven business model that combines fun and personal customer service.

Party plans have been used to sell items such as kitchen products, home decor, jewelry, skincare and cosmetics.

Yet fresh premium quality flowers have never been marketed via a party plan…until now.   The demise of so many florists and new three day Fedex delivery capabilities have made the Premium Flower Party a logical entry in the new economic paradigm.

Here is a note that Roberto sent to me.

“Gary, The program will begin as follows. I expect some small changes as we evolve and adjust to circumstances.

Leather Leaf Fern

ecuador-easter-lilies

The arrangements are the freshest premium quality flowers.

The can be sold at the Premium Flower Party at $19.99, a price that  is very hard to duplicate. Selling 25 bouquets at the party creates an income of $499.75 or double the cost of the flowers.

The fun is that each person makes their bouquet at the party!

We will provide a pamphlet for each customer with instructions on how to take care of flowers and 25 packs of flower food, plus a DVD that shows how to make the flower arrangement.

We plan to offer a different bouquet every two weeks so hostesses can even create a Premium Flower Party Club so guests come twice a month to make their bouquet and take it to their home.

The party hostess can also become a florist and take special orders between each party.

Each host or hostess can determine how much he or she would like to contribute to Land of the Sun Foundation… $20 or more.

Regards, Roberto

The really good news is that Ecuador flowers and roses are truly the best because there is 365 days a year of direct sunlight.

The Premium Flower Party is a good way to earn income for those who like flowers… like parties… and want to work from home.

George Soros had written a  fascinating book entitled, “The New Paradigm for Financial Markets”.  This book explains that the next generation will have to understand bubbles rather than ignore them.  He is a deep thinker with ideas several decades ahead of his time.

The flowers delivered are environmentally friendly and fair trade flowers.

Roberto’s Fresh Flower Party Plan is an idea who time has come and you can contact Roberto at roberto@webflowermarket.com

Until next message, may all your income be good and come with care.

Ecuador Flowers-Lilies & More


When you buy Ecuador flowers, lilies or roses from Land of the Sun… you are doing much… much more than filling your home with sweet scents, beauty and love.

Here is why.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

A recent message Ecuador rose thanks explained how we use the money from the Ecuador flower orders (lilies and roses) to help Ecuador’s poor.  That message outlined how a small village near Cotacachi needed improvements to their school.   They wanted to do the work. They just needed materials.

So we began.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

Yesterday they had a minga (a village work party).

We provided the cement mixer.  Plus…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

sand… gravel…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

cement and…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies stone for this first improvement.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies This retaining wall will support a higher wall for security to keep the books and computers safe.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

The village supplied their own tools… plus…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

their labor and their hearts.  Everyone helped.  The men mixed cement and moved it in wheel barrows. The women carried the stone… some in their bare feet.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

Old and …

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

young.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

Ecuador flower sales (lilies and roses) are helping this girl with a college scholarship as well.

The people all work together to move…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

for the future of their kids.

ecuador-flowers-lilies

They work because they want their energy in this improvement.

When we originally came to see this project, the people of this village were clear. They did not want money.  They wanted materials so they could do the work.

This is the way we like to donate.  Ecuador flowers (lilies and roses) bring love and beauty into your home… the best flowers in the world at the lowest price you will find… delivered in the freshest fastest way.  This service helps bring energy to these people who in turn add their effort to make the future better…  for their children. Yours and mine as well.

We also brought fruit… because this high in the mountains they cannot afford it.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

They are so grateful that…

no matter…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

we always wish…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

we had brought more.

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

This village may have a small bank account, but…

Ecuador-flowers-lilies

they have large hearts and high energy.

They thank you for your flower orders and send their gratefulness in every petal you enjoy.

The next step is to improve the water supply.  We’ll work on this and keep you informed.

We donate $20 for each order to help Ecuador’s poor.

We also offer Ecuador roses that are truly stunning!

ecuador-rose-news

You can order 50 fresh premium Ecuador roses at a lower price from our site than anywhere I have been able to find.

I checked the internet.

1800flowers offers 36 Martha Stewart Roses for $259.00.

Flowerbud.com offers 50 premium roses for $135.

48longstems.com offers 50 roses for only $69…plus shipping… $22.94
or a total 91.94.

www.overstock.com offers 50 roses for $94.99.

So $79 for 50 fresh cut, premium roses, including Fedex overnight delivery, is a great price. Even better, you can order 100 premium roses for only $119 at Fresh Ecuador Roses.

We donate $20 to help Ecuador’s poor for each order.

We are now accepting Easter rose orders and Ecuador Easter lily orders.
