Ecuador Vedic Center

Our friend, vedic Astrologer,  Blaine Watson sent this note.

I am currently in the Ecuadorean cloud forest teaching a course in astrology. Only a handful of people are attending so the course is intimate and detailed knowledge is coming out. We are at the Flowing River Resort (www.theflowingriverresort.com) in the western foothills of the Andes mountains in Ecuador’s first Eco Preserve. The Intag is the rain forest in the northwest and the cloud forest is the lower portion of that is my understanding.

This is the…


Flowing River Resort…


is one of Ecuador’s new spas that…


you won’t want to miss.

The jungle here is exquisite; lush, misty, it rains a little every day, the temperature is temperate, warm but rarely hot, never over 30 degrees celsius i am told. Every kind of fruit, vegetable, plant and tree grows here. The resort, built and run by Cynthia Martinian, is growing moringa, turmeric, ashwagandha, pineapple, papaya, guava, cheremoya, etc with plans to eventually grow all of the Ayurvedic herbs. It sits on a fast moving but shallow river and there are waterfalls nearby. There are 1932 species of bird here including dozens of different types of hummingbirds.

The staff is professional and attentive to our every need. The chef is a long time meditator and trained in every kind of cuisine. The food is world class. The rooms are spacious, private and comfortable. Most have king beds and a couple have bunk beds. the facility could accommodate around 15 couples. This would be a perfect spot for any kind of retreat anyone would like to offer. It would be the perfect spot for extended meditation, bird watching/eco tourism, or just a vacation adventure. It is remote, about 4 hours from Quito airport. There are only small, rural villages nearby. The closest large town, and it’s not even that large, is Mindo, the famous eco tourism town in the Intag.

I can’t say enough about how much I am enjoying being here and hope to bring another group here in the new year for another jyotish course. If you are interested just let me know.


The Flowing River offers an a la carte spa, a 2000 square foot yoga studio, community arts and crafts, and fresh, nutritious meals catered to fill any indulgence or dietary restriction.  This is a place for deep healing, self-empowerment, and peace of mind.


You can immerse yourself in Mother Nature’s healing power, tucked deep within an oxygen-rich, cloud forest of northern Ecuador.

Three Shamanic Health Reports FREE

I have created three shamanic health reports about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

In this special offer I want to send you all three reports on how you can gain better natural health free.

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.

One report looks at exercise.

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.

The second report is about eating for maximum nutrition and purification.

Andean shamanic nutrition helps kick start natural 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!

Eat in ways that strengthens and purifies as it stops adding toxicity from eating.

Gain 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.


The  nutrition 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.

Back to exercise – Unlock the Mystery of Key Muscles

The exercise 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.

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.

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.

There are many ways to improve health naturally.


Watching the sun rise promotes good natural health for example.  Our use of color and observing the correct colors (frequencies) at the correct time are important.

We have been incorporating the ideas of how natural health promotes everlasting wealth into our courses and seminars for decades and this report covers them all.

Here are 11 main points covered in the reports.

#1: Quantum mechanics, frequency, health &  wealth.  How they all connect.

#2: Three aspects of being – air – fire – water… how to balance and integrate them.  How a moonlight stroll reduces the risks of excessive adrenaline.

#3: Three ways to integrate brain waves and be in the zone… 60 cycle sound… L- theanine and meditation.

#4: The Andean – Indian Connection.  How Ayurved and Andean relate.  Three fundamentals of longevity. Eat right, work well and sleep soundly.

#5: How dis-ease develops and is stopped with nutrition, exercise and purpose.

#6: How to use cleansings. Melon, pineapple, apples-grapes, vareshna, chelating, cinnamon-sweet pepper tea, steam and mists.  Teas: How and when to use cedron, chamomile, lemon verbena, peppermint.

#7: Ways to relax.  How to use chamomile, valerian, lettuce and milk, hot water, vata press. Ways to calm down. How to use peppermint tea, aloe, cream massage, frozen grapes.  Ways to wake up. How to use cinnamon tea, paprika, cloves, ginger, ginger-black salt and lemon juice.

#8: How to use, colors and sound to stimulate organs and glands.

#9: EZ Shamanic exercises-yoga, llama walk, lizard, sun salute, crab and mouth release, ring chew, etc.

#10: How to use the senses, taste, six flavors.

#11: How to use essential oils to balance wellness.

The three shamanic health reports are about:

Our online Super Thinking Workshop can help you join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Be happier as you become smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.


Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

Become smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.


They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brain.  The article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!


At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

You can order the online Super Thinking Workshop here ($49.95)

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Our guarantee.

I guarantee it.  Order the Super Thinking Workshop.  Use it for two months.  If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.

Intuition and Phytobiodermie Natural Health

See how intuition brought Phytobiodermie natural health benefits closer to us.

Anyone in the health care field especially those who do body work can create a global income with Phytobiodermie products.

See how to export these top quality Swiss products to Ecuador or anywhere below.

This part one in a series on how profits, fulfillment and benefits can flow in many ways when you follow your passion in business investing and life.

When you attend Merri’s and my courses on integrating logic and intuition… Watch Out!  You may end up following some fun, wild, zany paths.

For example, one couple, who were developers attended a business intuitive seminar we sponsored.

Did the course help them in their development business?  Perhaps but one of them ended up riding a bike 4,000 miles across Africa to promote tourism in Africa that will help the poor there.  Here she is crossing the Nubian Desert!


Way to go!

Getting your logic in touch with greater intelligence via intuition can lead you in directions and ways you’ll not expect.

Merri and I often gain confidence and new directions from ahas that are more than wild imagination.

Ahas and spontaneous thoughts are a form of communication that go beyond what our brain can sort out in finite terms.  Seeds of belief become planted, that are then cultivated with trial, error and experience.

We have made small fortunes again and again in this way.  Once we bought Jyske Bank shares based on this hunch. See how we earned hundreds of thousands of dollars.

We bought out hotel in Ecuador on a hunch.  We bought a block of condos after exchanging a 15 second glance.  But both after years of researching the Ecuador real estate market.  Often we have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars (and on occasion millions) based on “illogical” hunches.

For example, our Ecuador business has been booming for years.  Our hotel has been fully booked again and again. We were swamped with business in Ecuador when the US economy slowed.  Our Ecuador real estate rose as US real estate collapsed. 

Yet in the midst of this success we moved back to the USA and began buying US real estate and expanding our focus on living and investing in small town USA.

Let me outline the crazy illogical reason why.

First, when we were in Florida Christmas 2007,  I saw Florida real estate prices that were real bargains… maybe even better than Ecuador.  We were so impressed with these prices that we hired our daughter, Cheri, part time to take a look.

That would not have been enough.  We are early in – early out people but Ecuador’s cost of living is still so much lower… Ecuador life is so much simpler… business was so good.

Then came the chain of illogical events.

Susan Rotman, our business psychic consultant, sent an electronic card… all about US patriotic songs and sights.  See the card here.

This card is very patriotic… very not Merri and me.  Susan knew it as well.

Okay what’s this about?” I emailed her.

She replied:  “Interesting–I woke up yesterday morning from having a dream about you and Merri.  As delightful as you both are, I have never dreamed about you before!  And it was from that I was moved to send you the card“.

We called and asked for a consultation.   During our talk, she said she dislikes Florida but saw us spending time there.  That was clue #1.

Then Jyske Global Asset Management started up its seminar business and wanted us as partner… in Florida.  They chose the hotel for the first seminar… The Beach Club where Merri and I  had our first seminar ever. We start there May. Clue #2.

Then we met up with our astrologer, Blaine Watson, and saw in our chart that a change was in the making as well. Clue #3.

Enough. Enough. We  got the point and  headed to Smalltown USA to look around.   We were amazed at the deals and ended up buying 16 acres near Mt. Dora, Florida based on these totally illogical non linear reasons.   The adventure and the outcome has been  interesting to see because intelligence beyond logic often leads to lucky coincidence.


This is one of the ancient oaks at the entrance of our Florida house.

Here is the orange grove on the property.


Merri and I love the house as a place to live… but also picked up an orange grove as well.  This turned us into farmers though you can count my knowledge in this field on your fingers… of one hand.

Yet the first note in this series Bio Wash Environmental Profits tells how we removed one third of the lower producing trees in a grove management plan and then sprayed the remaining 2/3rd with Bio Wash.

The year before we took over, the grove produced about 1,500 boxes of oranges.  This year with 500 fewer trees, the grove produced 2,484 boxes of oranges.

In other words, last year the average yield of about 1.2 boxes  of naval oranges a tree. This year the average yield was 2.4 boxes a  tree… double.  This increased the income of the grove 37% with 33% less trees.  Even after the cost of   removing and replanting a third of the grove the profits were almost $1,000 an acre… all unexpected extra income.

So by following our intuition we gained some extra cash.

Moving to Mt. Dora brought much more.

We have also gained extra natural health benefits because following our feelings as well as our thoughts has helped us gain more advantage of Phytobiodermie.

Phytobiodermie is a non-surgical body and facial rejuvenation. Merri and I have enjoyed this powerful Swiss treatment for over  two decades and can attest that it leaves you looking younger and feeling great. Few treatments areas effective, enjoyable and relaxing. Yet there is more than just relaxation and stress release. There can be considerable health benefits from this treatment.

This revolutionary system comes from Swit zerland which is known for its purity and highest standards. The Phytobiodermie Swiss skin care and detoxifying system has over 25 years of experience. Their wonderfully enjoyable treatments combine Swiss technology, chromotherapy (color energy) and Chinese energy medicine to clear the body’s lymph system. It stimulates energetic points that promote the toning of the skin while adding a sense of well being and deep relaxation.

Like acupuncture and feng shui, chromotherapy is a positive energy reb alancing. When combined with a detoxifying lymph drainage, steam and mineralized soak, you look and feel years younger. Merri and I have watched numerous Phytobiodermie demonstrations where half of a face is treated. The difference in appearance is quote remarkable.

Merri and I used Phytobiodermie healing massages as often as possible for years. A friend in North Carolina was a trained tech and we had regular phytobiodermie lympth drainage massages from her.

We liked these so much we bought phytobiodermie equipment and supplies and trained the masseur at our Ecuador hotel how to do a Phytobiodermie massage.

When we moved back to Florida this reduced our access and we missed the treatments until…


we learned that Phytobiodermie moved its USA headquarters about 17 minutes from our Florida house. Now when here, we can have a massage every week.


Phytobiodermie distributes its products globally through health care and spa professionals.  The company trains distributors in the field or at their headquarters in Florida. These are the best… pure products that provide a unique niche business opportunity.   For details health care professionals and spas contact Gina Cassisi  at gina.phytoinst@earthlink.net

Integrated thinking creates extra  potential for great wealth… satisfaction… fulfillment…happiness… joy growth… If we can stop looking and use our inner vision.  This is a time of change and the old ways will no longer work.   We need insight and vision to guide us because the best ways ahead have not been seen before.

So the next time you need a miracle…do not deny that one can happen. The next time you have done your due diligence and some small niggling idea reaches you, act on it. This does not mean you should stop working nor that you should quit using due diligence. The idea is to fuse the intellect and intuition, not abandon nor honor one over the other. They work best as a team!

Tomorrow we’ll see how we may also get a totally unexpected… unpredictable… huge real estate value jump on the land!

Using your intuition and paying attention to your hunches does it mean you should go out and risk all on a hunch.

Start small….all things should start small and grow.

Nor does it mean you will not have to work. Often the hunches have led us to incredible amounts of labor.

You possess connections to infinite knowledge. Your mind cannot grapple this because the act of defining defeats the very thing you are connected to. However, if you let go and let your intuition lead you, you too may have some wonderful surprises and luck that after awhile will not be surprising at all!

Phytobiodermie has arranged discounts for our readers and has set a special schedule so delegates at our April 9-10, 2011 course can have a massage the day before or after or in the evenings of the 9th and 10th.
