Again, several Success Stories were added to the Switchwords Database today. I CONTINUE to BE in AWE of the power of Switchwords. A few things added today include:
DIVINE-Hu-PERFECT-life partner-NOW-SOMEHOW. (Increase personal ability to feel the world with love, and fill the world with love, feel satisfied with a life partner now, release the details and let it be.)
To find your soul mate, marriage, love.
New Success Story: Good news and a success story. I found my true love and got engaged last month. Thanks for your help. The Switchwords which you gave worked very well. Thanks a lot. I am blessed to have you in my life. (Switchphrase given by Girija.)
DIVINE-CRYSTAL-REACH. (Increase personal ability to clarify the situation and find what you are looking for.)
New Success Story: This Switchphrase has worked again today within 5 minutes of chanting on adding NOW, thank you.
DIVINE-BRING-MAGIC-CHARM-SOMEHOW. (Increase personal ability to deliver the goods, be enchanted, manifest your heart's desires, release the details and let it be.)
Given for getting a job already applied for but not yet hired.
New Success Story: I got the job. Thank you so much. I didn't use the Switchwords that much, but I guess even reading it once or twice works.
I have great Appreciation for my spiritual/energy connections. Most every day I receive answers to healing questions asked. I LISTEN to suggestions that are brought to me, and I pass the information along. Often it makes a big difference. I Appreciate that my Source, Spirit, Universe, All-That-Is supports me in my endeavors.
Sometimes people tell me that Switchwords and Energy Circles don't work for them, and then they so often go on to explain themselves, and I see how they are working, but the filters people see the world through often prevent them from seeing it.
One example is an Energy Circle for selling a house, given several months ago. A number of offers have come in, but each has been rejected for one reason or another. The interpretation of the house seller is that the Energy Circle is not working...my perspective is that it is bringing opportunities, and perhaps, if the offers do not meet with expectations either something can be done to upgrade the house, or perhaps a new focus added to the Energy Circle will help to increase the offers. However, I have found that Switchwords will not bring about an over-valued sale. They work to the advantage of all parties concerned, including the seller and the buyer, regardless of which is the Requester.
I was given the opportunity to enjoy all three of my grandchildren today. I LOVE it when they can spend time TOGETHER, and when the opportunity arises for US to BRING them TOGETHER for a few hours, I Appreciate the experience.
The youngest has been a bit reticent to explore the jetted tub with the jets turned on. After each of his cousins had their jetted tub bath, he requested one today, and really enjoyed the bubbles. It is an incredible experience watching children grow and learn and experience.
A bag full of paper airplanes accompanied my daughter's kids when they arrived. They have been creating many different designs and at the ripe old ages of 6 and 7 have already begun their careers as aerospace engineers. What fun!
Nothing matches the JOY of experiencing children in their unbridled play, engineering and simply BEing in life.
December 7 - Appreciation
Just now I was thinking about all the Success Stories that come in, and how much Appreciation I have for those willing to share them. As I enter them into the Databases, I wind up losing track of what came in when, and how many come in. Then I realized an option I have as Administrator of the Databases - I can look up all the new activity in them. Oh yes! Wow! How AMAZING it is to have a husband who had the forethought to have that option available for me!
Added today were:
QUIET-CRYSTAL-RESTORE-REACH-NOW-DONE-SOMEHOW. (Quiet the ego, clarify the situation, restore fairness and honesty, find what you are looking for now, create completion, release the details and let it be.)
DIVINE-REACH. (Increase personal ability to find what you are looking for.)
WOLF. (Increase confidence.)
New Success Story: I had lost my silver jewelry a month back, searched a lot but did not find it and forgot about it thinking will not find it in any case. A few days back read a success story of finding lost item, I chanted Switchwords 2 days ago and to my amazement and joy found it today.
BRING-PERFECT-COPY-WITH-BENEVOLENT-EASE. (Deliver the goods, be satisfied with the results of fertility (baby), harmonize well with being peacefully accepting, calm down and simplify the task at hand.)
For labor/child birth.
New Success Story: Your Switchwords for a smooth delivery worked. I am a first time mom and I only pushed for 38 minutes. It wasn't a walk in the park but as deliveries go it kind of was! Thank you.
TAP-TOUCH-LISTEN-BETWEEN-TENDER-RENDEZVOUS. (Adapt, gather serenity and strength, create a supportive impact, connect with your Inner Being, increase psychic awareness, negotiate successfully, meeting of the minds to mutual benefit.)
New Success Story: Last week I asked you to help me for a court case. Your suggestion helped me. The guy has agreed to withdraw it.
Every day is exciting, looking forward to what NEW experiences are coming my way.
I also spent time today working on putting TOGETHER information on Color Mudras. I am working on simplifying the complex (SHOULDER) instructions for these Mudras so i can add them to Blue Iris Learning Center. Perhaps by the first part of the week I will start posting the articles for Color Mudras.
I also am working on getting the Spandan Mudras input into the new vial I have been working on the past few years...Blue Iris Wellness. The vial is not yet (officially) for sale. It started off as my own combinations of techniques for some disciplines I use, but has expanded to including much, much more.
My life holds so much to Appreciate! Many THANKS to all who BRING me so much to Appreciate!
P.S. I have been contemplating the 2014 Theme. I think I am settling on Empowerment. It feels good for following this year's Theme of Transformation.
Anyone else have thoughts on this? Email me at
Daily December Appreciation December 6, 2013
I have been writing on Kat Thoughts at Facebook, Appreciation for each day throughout this month, and wanted to BRING my thoughts here as well. I may post daily, or at times compile a few days (as I have below).
December 1 - Appreciation
December 1 is my eldest's birthday. He was born two months premature and we fought long and hard to keep him with us, oh so many years ago.
He thrives and has shown us such JOY for so many years. It has been an AMAZING life, sharing it with him. I Appreciate every moment of my life, knowing that my Sunny (love calling him that, as he brightens the day) is here with me. May we KEEP you, my Sunny, for many, many more birthdays.
December 2 - Appreciation
Today, I begin to look forward to the festivities and joy of the season. I contemplate which shifts I could make in my crochet as we MOVE into the season and the year begins dwindling. I have not looked at my Snowflake patterns for about a year (see patterns at http://kk.blueiris.org/ ). I wonder if I will want to make them, or perhaps CHOOSE to BRING forward some NEW ones. I love quick, simple beautiful crochet, because it allows me to TRICKLE (share) with others around me.
BLESSED-THANKS-AWE. (Feel gratitude and appreciation, stop regretting and release guilt, be aware of your singular place in the Universe, be your authentic self, the world is better because you are here!)
December 3 - Appreciation
Today I worked more on compiling information on Mudras for Blue Iris Learning Center. I added information about the Adi (Surrender) Mudra on the Forum and in the subscription area of Blue Iris. It is fascinating to read up on the Mudras and see all that is available, then compile it and make it quickly and easily available for reference.
So far I have done:
Adi (Surrender) Mudra Beginning, Commencement
Chin/Gyan Mudra Unified Consciousness, Gesture of Knowledge, Elated Consciousness
Mahasirs (Headache) Mudra Headache relief
Pushan/Acceptance Mudra This Mudra represents the gesture of acceptance, as well as giving.
This list is at: http://blueiris.org/community/index.php
I anticipate frequent updates with additional Mudras and expanding information on what is there. I love and appreciate my friends giving me additional input and thoughts about the Mudras.
I also updated the FLOWER Energy Circles article at Blue Iris Learning Center today, adding configuration files for downloading for the Energy Circle Creator - learn about it at http://ecc.blueiris.org/ - making it every easy to take Energy Circles for editing in the program.
I found myself totally amazed at the easy with which I am able to update the articles and work with the configuration files for generating the Energy Circles. What an AMAZING man I have, to CREATE such simplicity for me.
I also awakened to a message from Rhoda telling me she had updated information in the Switchwords Database. I always LOVE those messages. The Database continues to grow by leaps and bounds, allowing us to find so quickly and easily the things we are looking for.
Recently, we have been adding Energy Circles to the Databases too, making it easy to get a graphic representation of things being presented there. I just checked and we currently have 475 entries that have Energy Circle information in them. Wow! That's AMAZING.
I also checked to see how many entries have at least one Success Story and we now have 489. Sometimes it's fun to just search on Success Stories and read what is in there.
I've been compiling my Personal Switchphrases in the Database for quite some time, and just did a search showing me that currently I have 513 of my own Switchphrases in the Database, all added one at a time.
As people have given me quotes to translate into Switchwords, I have added those to the Database as well. Right now we have 52 entries that are a "Switchwords way of saying..."
Some time ago Rhoda did me the honor of adding all the Switchphrases that are listed for enhancing Flower Energies into the Database. I have not defined all of them yet, but many have been, and as I get time to update them, I do. Right now we have 258 Switchphrases for enhancing Flower Energies in the Database, and I only have 162 of them left to define (slowly but surely I am getting there).
Rhoda also entered the Switchphrases associated with the 82 Vibrational Balancing Images for me, and all of them have been defined (whoooo hoooo!).
Though I have not entered every Switchwords Birthday Wish I have made on groups into the Database, at this moment in time we have 77 there.
The versatility of the Switchwords Database often astounds me. I have been so BLESSED to be able to express my desires and have Joe BRING them to fruition for me.
There is INDEED great Appreciation here, for all that I have and all that I DO.
December 4 - Appreciation
It is so AMAZING to read success stories people post on groups. A few came in today, and as they come in I try to add them to the Databases. One using CUT-OFF-LIMIT-GUARD for getting rid of an "evil eye" and to stop negative effects of neighbors was added to the Switchwords Database today...
Success Stories: Achieved success with the Energy Circle for bad bad habits that can be used for other emotions also, used it to keep off evil eye. For a long time, I can say years,a neighbor maintained wrong attitude of interference in my family's life. We had caught them several times listen to our private conversations too, since the day Energy Circle was broadcast they seem to have disappeared. My intention was to cut off the negativity or evil eye & not the person. They no longer seem to spy us. Two days back they came to us for work and surprisingly and amazingly, they were very sweet.
I have so much Appreciation for others sharing like this, giving others the opportunity to utilize it for their own situations.
December 5 - Appreciation
Wow! December 5th Appreciation...Dawnalee, and friends like her who have, and CONTINUE to ENHANCE my life.
Dawnalee has known me for well over 20 years. We were introduced to and grew into energy healing techniques TOGETHER.
Dawnalee was my first contractor when I was doing medical transcription...was in a panic that the work was about to explode when I first met her. We worked TOGETHER many a long hour as I trained her in the work, and as things expanded she was absolutely invaluable...back then I was Precision Typing.
Now I am totally out of transcription and totally into Switchwords and Energy Work...and I believe the same is true of her.
Dawnalee has an amazing touch, and has been the main source of new Flower Energies added to the vial for years. I am greatly enhanced by her friendship.
December 6 - Appreciation
Switchwords came into my life in April 2007. A dear friend of mine sent me a link to the e-book that was then available from Shunyam Nirav. The book allowed one to read the first 43 pages for free, and then asked for payment to read the rest. In reading specifically about REACH, I found that that Switchword almost exactly matched the definition of the file "Lost, Forgotten, Need to Remember and How to Find" linked to the Emotional Freedom vial.
I decided I needed the whole book and bought it. Since then I have been having a LOVE affair with Switchwords. I joined Nirav's Switchwordsgroup on Yahoo, began participating very actively in the group, and found myself so aligned with Switchwords that I was giving advice on usage almost from the GET-GO.
I offered my services to Nirav as a moderator for his group, and when Nirav passed on in 2008, I took ownership of the Yahoo Switchwordsgroup and have maintained it since.
I later found a mostly inactive Switchwords group on Facebook, joined it, and soon found myself an administrator thereof. In 2011, a notification that the group was of an old format that could not be brought forward into the newer Facebook groups format sent me to creating a new Switchwords group on Facebook. On May 5, 2011, I founded the current Facebook Switchwords group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/197272440315306/ - and I brought Rhoda to help me manage it.
NOW, today, our Switchwords group on Facebook has blossomed to 2,133 members in less than 3 years. We are growing by leaps and bounds, and that means that every day more and more people are benefiting from Switchwords.
Looking to James T. Mangan's book, The Secret of Perfect Living, it was first published in 1963. As I realized 2013 was coming to a close and we had not yet celebrated 50 years of Switchwords, I decided that I would GIVE Switchwords a birthday, December 6.
Though Mangan worked with Switchwords for years before he published his book, the initial public introduction to the concept came with publication of his book in 1963, so I decided to DECLARE them to be 50 years old.
Much Appreciation is felt here for James T. Mangan, for his research and introduction of Switchwords in 1963, for Shunyam Nirav for his reintroduction of Switchwords, bringing focus to a nearly lost technique in 2006, and to Switchwords themselves for having come into my life and for allowing me to FIND NEW ways to BRING them to the world.
May Switchwords continue to FLOWER WITH all of humanity.
December Theme: Appreciation December 1, 2013
The last two months we focused on Contemplate and Forgiveness. This month we turn to Appreciation. Appreciation shows gratitude, thankful recognition. Let us look to the waning days of the year with Appreciation for all of our experiences throughout these 12 months. What has this year brought to you? Has your knowledge expanded? Have you overcome challenges? Take time each day throughout this month to notice something for which you have Appreciation, be it something in the current moment or reflections of the past. Focus on it. Expand it. Linger in the space of Appreciation. SHOW it thankful recognition, Appreciation.
APPRECIATION A Poem by Girija Sridhar
The year end Theme aptly is Appreciation, Let US all SHOW thankful recognition. Your day may have brightened by a single SMILE, BE appreciative, make it your unique style. Appreciating anything is truly a delight, So UPlifting and always right. Whether a REFLECTion of the past or something in the present, Let gratitude and appreciation, BE just as frequent. WITH appreciation comes a sense of JOY and PEACE, Happiness and contentment are sure to increase. Contemplate ON all you received through the year, Feel satisfied, recognize and BE FULL of CHEER! Never miss an opportunity to appreciate, Let it always BE your finest trait.

"The more you Praise, the more there is to praise and ultimately it is all energy and focus. I have just realized - when at crossroads - there are two options; look at negative or at the positive and when one looks at opportunities and positives - the moods get better and so does the outcome." Deepa V Bhagat November 25, 2013
How Do I Know I Am the One Creating My World? November 24, 2013
CONSIDER what you experience in life is 10% what happens and 90% the story you CREATE about what happens. CONSIDER also that from your emotional state you make decisions about what to do, where to go from here, etc. So, as you move along you do things that ALIGN WITH the energy vibrations from which you FLOW. Each experience you have, you have a choice as to how you will interpret it...whether you interpret it is good or bad, frustrating or elevating, etc. It is by the story that you tell yourself about the specific happenings that determines how you feel.
For example: Let's say you have anger toward someone who has been your friend in the past. They did something that you decided was hurtful to you. You don't want to see them again. You've decided they are not your friend anymore. There is a knock at your door. When you answer the door there is this former friend. You feel cold and angry. You tell them you don't want to talk to them and then close the door in their face. Now you created a continued anger, frustration and reconnected to the feelings that you had about that friend. You did not give them a chance to do anything to CHANGE that. You have no idea why they came by, but it was a very bad and anger-inspiring experience seeing them at the door. Now you are focused on that, probably for the rest of the day, and you have one bad experience after another.
Now let us set up another scenario for the same thing. You have the same feelings about this person, but you are wondering about the possibility of restoring the relationship. You're wondering if you did something to cause them to react the way they did. Now they knock on the door, and when you see them you realize you have the opportunity to mend the fence between you. You look at them and each of you at the same moment starts to say you're sorry. You feel relief come. You sit down with them discuss things, let go of the hurt and anger, and suddenly your friend is back in your life. You feel good. The day shifts and you enjoy the rest of the day.
What if in the first scenario your friend intended to mend fences, but your reaction to them being there stopped that dead in its tracks? What if they had been in the intention of forgiveness, but your reaction overruled that and they shifted once again to anger, resentment and frustration? What if they decided they no longer wanted to forgive? What if they too had a bad day after the interlude, as both of you again aligned with the negative emotions?
Now a third scenario....What if they were there to give you a piece of their mind, to return to you gifts you had given them because they did not want to be reminded of you ever again, and wanted to completely sever ties with you? You on the other hand were in a forgiving mood and really just wanted your friend back, and had the intention of making things right between you. Upon opening the door they thrust your gifts in your hands and begin to say that they never want to see you again, but you do not allow the negative state where they are to influence you. Your intention is to mend the friendship. You accept what they are saying and tell them what you are thinking...you are sorry for how things have gone between you and you miss them, want them back in your life. They may stop in the tracks, reevaluate where they are standing and shift to a positive space, now choosing to be your friend again. They may be in a space where they are not willing to do that, but you have given them the opportunity, and whether they CHOOSE to BE your friend again or not is their choice, but you chose to BE their friend. And it can leave you in a much calmer, relaxed state.
CONSIDER your actions, driven by your thoughts and your emotions, CREATE your experience. You can go through the same thing with a different perspective and completely CHANGE the outcome. It is not just action (what you do) that creates your experience, and it is not just your intention, nor just your emotional state, it is all three that work TOGETHER to CREATE your life experience.
Creating Friendships November 17, 2013
Are you lonely? Feel like you have no friends? Nobody calls on you. You feel you must always make the first contact or there is no contact ever made?
CONSIDER that any relationship that is important to you - TAKE 100% responsibility for maintaining it. So what if you call first? You are the one who wants the relationship. CONSIDER in all relationships, if you expect others to TAKE responsibility for maintaining it, you will be disappointed, every time.
NOW let us look at Switchwords for creating friendships...
CIRCULATE is to end loneliness and to mingle. EVAPORATE is to mingle with your environment, to make a difference. DIVINE-TOGETHER is to improve interpersonal relationships. TOUCH is to create a supportive impact. BETWEEN is to improve telepathy, but I believe it also is about working on the relationship between people.
CONSIDER-CIRCULATE-EVAPORATE-DIVINE-TOGETHER-TOUCH-BETWEEN. (Fix this, end loneliness, mingle with your environment, make a difference, improve interpersonal relationships, create a supportive impact, work on relationships with other people.)
Use this Switchphrase. Start making first contact. See what happens.
What If I Don't Feel the Energy Work? November 16, 2013
Today I was asked about feeling the energy of Switchwords, Energy Circles, well any energy work. How do you know if it is working if you do not feel it?
Personally, when I do energy work, I do not feel the shift as it happens...I simply realize later, wow, it did work!
I use PERSONAL-HOLD...when I start to feel an urge to void and nowhere to go. I will intend it or maybe even say it several times, and still feel the pressure...then as my mind wanders elsewhere...SUDDENLY several minutes later I realize the urge is gone and I safely make it to a space before it returns.
I may have a headache...I think, I wish to feel refreshed, calm and relaxed, use CHANGE or ADJUST or even perhaps 160 Hz. I still feel the headache. I find myself, again, focusing somewhere else, and then again SUDDENLY realize sometime later, the headache is gone. I have no idea when it left, but it did.
ALONE is the Switchword for healing. What if how they are working for me is by getting my focus OFF whatever it is that I wish to clear/heal, to ALLOW it to heal?
Why worry about feeling the results? When you are looking to feel the results...you are attaching to lack of feeling them, which in turn keeps you from feeling them.... So, why not just INTEND the Switchwords to work for you, and MOVE ON?
CONSIDER You Must DECLARE It November 16, 2013
To make something the truth, CONSIDER you must DECLARE it first to CREATE it next.
CONSIDER-DECLARE-CREATE-SPEED-CLOUDS-RAINBOW-CIRCULATE-GOLD-EVER. (Fix this, create possibilities, transform thought into action, bring about good fortune, abundance and prosperity, miraculous formation of event, create a colorful conscious life, dreams beckon reality, mingle, shine under pressure, enduring rewards, be in peace and maintain wellness, be unaffected by ridicule and negative or contrary energy, maintain continuity and keep it going.)
A Switchwords way of saying, "All is absolutely wonderful as life is gloriously prosperous and I am totally healthy and fulfilled beyond belief and all my connections and life experiences are beyond magnificent and this is 100% truthful so I am totally allowing space for others to join me."
Remember, if you can't CHANGE it... If there is only one option... If it already has been so... CHOOSE it. November 4, 2013
"BE yourself, always BE true; Never try to BE in another's shoe. You will BE LOVEd as you are; After all you are a bright STAR!" Girija Sridhar November 4, 2013
NEW! Flower Pendant Pouch History November 3, 2013
I have had requests for a way to protect Pendant Vials. As all Energy Vials are (and must be) glass, they are vulnerable to breakage. I have been looking for a way to help protect them.
As I looked into what could be done, I wanted to address all CONCERNS associated with Pendant Energy Vials.
I have used chains and cords for working with Pendant Vials. Chains occasionally have broken, and there has been some concern about clasps on cords either failing or not being easily hooked together.
The cost of Pendant Energy Vials also was something I wanted to address. Because Pendant Vials cost me more, and require substantially more work and materials, I have to charge extra for them.
With the NEW Flower Pendant Pouch, I have addressed all these CONCERNS and more.
Several months ago I found a new nylon crochet thread. The nylon thread is much stronger than regular crochet thread. Having worked for many years with different types of yarn, I have found the nylon to be invaluable as a strong and durable yarn. I chose this nylon crochet thread for creating the Flower Pendant Pouches.
This past August, my sister asked me to make some Flower Earrings for her. Eventually, out of the Flowers I developed for those Earrings, came the Flower used for the Flower Pendant Pouch grew.
I looked for a way to create a pouch that was easy to use, didn't require buttons, clasps or drawstrings, could be worked in one piece and would hold the Vials safely and securely. Using CHARM-LIGHT (as I often do when looking to develop a new pattern), the thought came to me to have a flap that overlaps the bottom from the top, and has the edges sewn down, allowing for easy access to insert and remove the vial, but keeping it securely in place once inside. My first try proved the design to be PURRFECT. I have been using the Flower Pendant Vial Pouches since the day I completed the first one. The vials stay securely in place.
I chose to face the pouch flap toward the Flower, which gives an extra layer of security for keeping the vial safely in the pouch.
I chose also to work the Pouch and the chain in one continuous piece, as areas where two pieces are joined tend to be the "weakest link." The crocheted chain is long enough to go over the head, and also places the Vial securely at the center of the chest, ready for work at any and every moment.
One other advantage of the Flower Pendant Pouch is that Vials can be interchanged easily. It obviates the need for multiple Pendant Vials. CHOOSE any vial you want, put it in the Pouch, and have it available to you anytime, anywhere.
CHOOSE from a dozen beautiful Flower colors, which can be mixed and matched with Pouches to CREATE the presentation you want.
Flower Pendant Pouches are NOW available for $14.99 USD at http://blueiris.biz (vial not included)
Inner Thoughts November 1, 2013
The world around you reflects your inner thoughts. As you judge the world, so shall the world return to you.
CHOOSE to find a golden nugget in every situation (Chocolate), and put your focus on that (HIGHEST POTENTIAL). Let go (POSTPONE) what doesn't serve your joyful purpose, including anger and resentment (CLEAR).
CHOOSE-Chocolate-HIGHEST POTENTIAL-POSTPONE-CLEAR. (Release old pains, be empowered, find a golden nugget in every situation, focus on positive aspects, let it go, dispel anger and resentment.)
November Theme: Forgiveness November 1, 2013
The last two months we focused on Wonder and Contemplate, this month we look to Forgiveness. Forgiveness allows us to let go of blame, judgment and remorse. Forgiveness releases you from the ties that bind you to those you now CHOOSE to FORGIVE. Forgiveness is not about the person being forgiven; it is about the person doing the forgiving. You are the one who suffers the pain and anguish when you hold onto unforgiveness. Let us give ourselves the gift of Forgiveness this month.
November 18th is the birthday of the Emotional Freedom vial. The Emotional Freedom vial is one of the first vials developed by Kat Miller, in 2005, as a way to energetically run the Emotional Freedom Techniques. It has been said that the Emotional Freedom vial SUPERcharges EFT, and while Gary Craig said that with the Emotional Freedom Techniques we were on the ground floor of a healing high-rise, some Emotional Freedom vial owners have said that the Emotional Freedom vial is the 82nd floor!
From hatred and revenge emerges only bitterness, And lost is the fragrance of LOVE, in the wilderness.
This heavy burden has so changed my countenance, That I have ruined my child-like INNOCENCE.
Learning to FORGIVE, transcends me to another plane, Where I FIND release from the bonds of hate and pain.
With forgiveness, all negative emotions FADE, And from within, I glow like the precious Jade.
Forgiving is so DIVINE, no less a resurrection, Freeing me FOREVER, from suffering and suffocation.
The healing brings the ultimate reward, From darkness to LIGHT, like a glimpse of the Lord.
I reflect deeply and completely FORGIVE, To CREATE a world where only PEACE and Harmony live.
Switchphrases: LOVE-WITH-OPEN-HEART-FORGIVE. (Generate, radiate and experience love and acceptance, harmonize well with freeing the mind, breathing easier, dispelling inhibitions and allowing, center in joy, eliminate remorse, end desire for revenge.)
FORGIVE-Carpe Diem (Eliminate remorse, end desire for revenge, seize the day, the moment, and be in the now.)
CONSIDER-LAUGH as a therapy for healing. A good belly LAUGH at least two to three times a day can BE very healing. CONSIDER watching comedies or reading jokes that BRING the laughter to you. LAUGH your way to wellness.
I have been reading the book Deadly Emotions by Don Colbert, M.D. He talks about the therapeutic qualities of laughter, some of which include:
Increases immunoglobin A, which helps protect against respiratory tract infections
Increases gamma interferon, the immune system's front-line defense against viruses
Increases B cells tha produce antibodies directly against harmful bacteria
Increases complement 2, a combination of proteins that acts as a catalyst in antibody reactions
One citation he makes in the book include a lady with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure and arthritis, all abating with LAUGH therapy.
Remember, JOY is a choice, a choice you make. Nothing in life can BRING you JOY. Some things may BRING a moment of happiness, but JOY is a choice you make. Regardless of what is going on around you, when you CHOOSE JOY you can BE there anyway.
I have just defined LAUGH as a Switchword:
LAUGH – boost the immune system; connect to youth and longevity; feel good (O) (77%)
MONA LISA-GIGGLE-CHUCKLE-LAUGH. (Smile, enjoy what you are doing, turn on personality and feel good.)
Rock-WITH-GRACE October 14, 2013
Rock-WITH-GRACE. (Bring about solidarity and unity, harmonize well with smoothing the rough spots.)
Awesome for dry cracked feet.
Note from Kat: My heels have had very deep fissures in the past. Often it would hurt to walk on them. I started using Bag Balm on them years ago, which really helped a lot. I still had some fissures, however.
A while back I started using Rock-WITH-GRACE for my feet. I started massaging them with a coconut oil lotion morning and evening, and while doing so chanting Rock-WITH-GRACE, giving them attention for several minutes each morning and evening. They really began to smooth a lot.
Then a while back one morning while massaging the coconut oil lotion into them I was prompted to also use a fine grit sandpaper on them. Now a fine grit sandpaper is used each morning, followed by the lotion massage. There are no more fissures, and they are feeling much softer and smoother.
Pay ATTENTION to thoughts that come to you about changing routines or adding to routines when you use Switchwords. It may be your Inner Being trying to direct you in ways that will bring to fruition the requests you are making with the Switchwords.
Rock-WITH-GRACE. (Bring about solidarity and unity, harmonize well with smoothing the rough spots.)
BEAM to the Rescue! October 10, 2013
Last night a friend called, wanting to meet at the park this morning, to have kids play and us talk. Great! So that was the plan.
This morning when I went outside, it was dark, cold and overcast. Heavy clouds looking like they were ready to burst. Oh dear!
We had about an hour before our planned trip to the park, so I spent the time BEAM-BEAM-BEAMing frequently. I told the grandkids we wanted to BEAM the clouds away, so they also assisted.
Then it was time to go. Still a lot of dark clouds out there, but the sun was shining through them, and some had cleared a bit. Off to the park we went.
The next two hours were spent enjoying the park, with the sun shining on us. It was not real warm (only in the low 60s), but it was beautiful. The kids enjoyed their time. We enjoyed our conversation, and the rest of Tucson enjoyed the overcast sky.
Now we are home it is okay to QUENCH-WITH-Raindrops (though Dean was asking for QUENCH-WITH-snow).
BEAM seems always willing to GIVE us a break anytime we CHOOSE it.
The Trinity of Most Requested Topics October 9, 2013
There are numerous Switchphrases for this, one that seems very powerful and has helped many is:
This Switchphrase is about letting go of need to control to build your fortune, being unaffected by whatever else is going on and letting go of the details to allow it.
Sometimes I think the biggest roadblock is that we do not want to take along with the money the responsibility, or we are afraid of the responsibility that comes with the money. BLUFF (dispel fear), SUFFER (handle success, prosperity, abundance) and TAKE-53 (become a good leader and take responsibility) may help here as well.
Healing/Health and Wellness
I specifically developed the Health Alignment Energy Circle with the Heal Multiple Switchwords for this:
DIVINE-TOGETHER-Fountain-GOLD-CLOUDS-ADD-CRESCENDO-Sunflower-BE-Oompa Loompa-RAINBOW-HOLIDAY. (Master interpersonal relationships, relieve stress and calm the spirit have faith in the future, trust in the life cycle, know that all can be, is and ever will be well, remember that hope springs eternal, an enduring reward, miraculous formation of events, increase continuously and gradually harmonizing with experiencing the now with joy and happiness, be in peace and maintain wellness, have fun and be in the creative flow, fulfill promises, create a colorful conscious life, dreams beckon reality, step out of the routine and enjoy yourself.)
TAP-CHOOSE-CLEAR-ALONE-ATTENTION-SPEED-NOW. (Adapt, be empowered, dispel anger and resentment, heal, do detailed work, bring about good fortune now.)
Health Alignment Energy Circle Attributes: Black gives protection, is for breaking free from bad habits and addictions, deep meditation and opening up deep unconscious levels.
Violet is for cleansing and clearing, helps to separate energies, relates to self-knowledge and spiritual awareness.
Blue is for devotion, calmness, and sincerity, meditation and spiritual expansion, peace, faith, aspiration, creative expression, relaxes the mind, and cooling and soothing.
Green is for energy, youth, growth, inexperience, fertility, hope, and new life, balance, growth, calming, helps open the ability to give and take unconditionally, is practical and adaptable, and represents money.
Yellow Flood surrounds, engulfs and permeates the Contents with mental activity and intellectual power, ability and awakening, activates nerves and brain, and generates energy for muscles, has a stimulating, cleansing, and eliminating effect on liver, intestines, and skin, helps purify the blood stream and activates the lymphatic system.
LOVE/Soul Mate/Marriage How to invite the right, ultimate, loving, caring, honest, sweet partner into your life? I mean: a man/woman who includes what your heart, your soul and of course, your entire being as a woman/man is longing for?
The biggest obstacle I see here is we are holding onto lack (longing for) of the LOVE which we desire. PERFECT seems a great start. Feel satisfied with where you are, with life as it is, with all its ups and downs. BE in your life. WATCH your life with enthusiasm. CHUCKLE (turn on personality). Quit worrying about whether the right person will come along and just live. In allowing yourself to live you will BEGIN to attract into your life more friends and LOVE. As you LOVE your life, you will FIND LOVE in your life.
Venus-FIND-PERFECT-LOVE-CHARM-DIVINE-TOGETHER-BE. (Allow for love, attraction, commitment and passion to grow in a new relationship, build your fortune in generating, radiating and experiencing love and acceptance, manifest your heart's desires, build an interpersonal relationship together, be in peace, maintain wellness, be unaffected by ridicule and negative or contrary energy.)
NEW! Flower Energy: Comet______ October 9, 2013
Last week, when I sent out the Switchphrase for the Comet ISON, I received a response from Dawnalee Shields, one of our Flower Energies developers, informing me that a NEW Flower Energyhad come forward as she read about ISON:
Comet _____ (insert the name of your favorite one) Positive Qualities: Abundant attraction of peace, love, joy and prosperity; supports us in fulfilling our purpose of forgiving and healing ourselves and by extension others with whom we interact; well seen is well-loved.
Patterns of Imbalance: Fearful of expressing one’s true nature, unwilling to be seen for whom we really are; distancing ourselves emotionally in a false attempt to protect ourselves. Creating stress as we “wait for the other shoe to drop” in relationships when what we keep hidden is revealed. (DAW)
October 2013 through early January 2014: Comet ISON
ISON, a Sungrazing Comet is currently creating a lot of excitement for astronomers and sky watchers. Because in November it will come close to the Sun, it is called a Sungrazing Comet. ISON should be visible to the unaided eye from November through early January. One place with some interesting reading on ISON is: http://www.lunarplanner.com/Snippets/13.11-Comet-ISON/
The feelings I get from ISON are a positive flow, excitement and reunion. A friend requested a Switchphrase for the few months for accentuating the positive aspects.
This Switchphrase means: Feel cherished, increase bliss, lighten your load and be inspired, get new ideas, nourish ambition, unify and progress.
I have also created an Energy Circle for this Switchphrase for ISON:
October Theme: Contemplate October 1, 2013
The last two months we have focused on Manifest and Wonder. October is here, and it's NOW time to Contemplate. Think about life; what is it that you want? How did you get to here? Is here where you want to be? If you wish to MOVE forward, MOVE ON, FIND something NEW, NOW is the time to think things through. Look into the details, how can it become? What brought you to this place, and how can you get what and where you want? Contemplate.
Switchphrase: FATHOM-DEEP-SOCRATES-Sandbox-NEW. (Develop deeper understanding, give focused attention, look deeply into the focus, see different perspectives for a more solid foundation from which to make decisions, keep creative juices flowing as new challenges and beneficial possibilities are discovered, form innovation.)
CONTEMPLATE! A Poem by Girija Sridhar
Beautiful October shall BRING US Contemplation, It says, "Look within for CALM reflection."
When you Contemplate, to yourself you REVEAL, How WITH many issues, you wish to deal.
It will OPEN doors to knowledge of the Self, That you had forgotten, ON your bookshelf!
Contemplation is like your favorite teacher, Soon, will GIVE you the PERFECT answer.
As the past, present, and future FLOW like a river, You look DEEP, you make decisions, you become stronger.
MOVE forward, and GIVE focused ATTENTION, Life will OPEN possibilities, like the vast ocean.
Flower: Cosmos Flower Energy Blend: Contemplation Mantra: Durga Mantra Gemstone/Crystal: Opal Animal Wisdom: Orca Number/Frequency: 763 - Angel Number (Manifest a continued supply of positive abundance, bring an influx of income, a pay-raise, promotion and a positive career in the very near future. Transmute fears and concerns about your financial situation to having faith that you will always have what you need in order to sustain and maintain you and your chosen lifestyle. Work diligently toward achieving your spiritual goals, manifesting wealth and positive abundance, and finding balance between your daily work life and your spiritual journey.)
Kat's Heavenly Gingersnaps October 1, 2013
This recipe makes soft, chewy, heavenly Gingersnaps. Quite by chance I found the cream to make a real delicious difference. We were at a family reunion and I had been asked to make Gingersnaps. One of the two eggs that had been brought along to make the Gingersnaps was broken, and therefore could not be used. I looked for a possible substitute and added 1/4 cup of heavy cream instead of the second egg. YUM!
Yield: about 10 dozen cookies.
As usual CHARM-LIGHT chanted (or intended) while cooking, then following inspiration, turns this into a Masterpiece.
Preheat oven to 325 F.
3/4 cup butter 2 cups brown sugar
1 well beaten egg 1/4 cup heavy cream 2 teaspoons vinegar 1/2 cup molasses
3 3/4 cups all purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1/4 teaspoon cloves 2 to 3 teaspoons ginger
Directions: Cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in egg, cream, vinegar and molasses. Sift and add remaining ingredients. Mix until well blended. Form dough into 3/4 inch balls.
Bake on a greased cookie sheet about 12 minutes. As the ball melts down during baking the cookie develops the characteristic crinkled surface. Makes about 10 dozen cookies.
If you can see it you can CREATE it. Let go of I am not... and just BE what you say you want to BE. (September 29, 2013)

Switchwords and Energy Circles (September 25, 2013)
I was asked why not just write Switchwords? Why put them in Energy Circles? My thoughts are...
Switchwords are not being broadcast when they are not in an Energy Circle. They are there to read. When you read them you BEGIN to activate them.
It's kind of like a book. You've read it. You remember it. But when you see it sitting on a shelf and read the title, you reconnect to it. It just sitting on the shelf does nothing until it is gazed at, then it activates a memory.
So it is with the Switchwords just written on surfaces...they await your noticing them and activate when you read them.
The Energy Circles broadcast the Switchwords to a space, place, person, or whatever is added to it.
An Energy Circle with no Requester or Focus inserted will generally broadcast to the space where it is hung or set facing up.
An Energy Circle with a Requester (person who wishes to have the Energy Circle affect them) will broadcast the Subject (Switchwords, Defusing Words, Homeopathics, Numbers, etc.) to the Requester, whether they are near or far.
If a Focus (additional person, place, thing to be affected by the Switchwords) is added to the Energy Circle, they too will receive the Energy Circle broadcast.
When placed inside an Energy Circle, the Switchwords are ON for broadcasting, whether they are being read or not.
Without an Energy Circle, the Switchwords are activated when you specifically read them.

What's in a name? (September 20, 2013)
I have this new little nephew. He was born at 26 weeks and weighed 1 pound 6 ounces. He is now about 3 1/2 months old and has had his share of trials, coming through all with amazing strength.
I thought this morning....because words can be so powerful in creating things, and our names (I believe) really do impact us with the meaning behind them, that I would look up Barrett (his name) and see what the name means...
Barrett means Bear Power, or Brave as a Bear!
Wow.....so with that information in hand I went looking for information that a Bear shares with us to see the Wisdom of a Bear, and here is what I have on it...
Bear represents strength and confidence. Bear teaches us to stand strong in times of adversity. Bear teaches us to take action and leadership. Bear helps us in a time for healing and teaches us to use healing abilities to help ourselves or others. Bear medicine emphasizes the importance of solitude, quiet time and rest in healing. Bear provides us with solid grounding. Bear helps us with communication with Spirit. Bear is a creature of dreams, visionary, helps with defense, introspection and wisdom.
Wow! Talk about picking a PERFECT name to help a PERFECT little boy as he joins this beautiful thing we call life!
Greg and Heather Rock! (My brother and sister-in-law)
September Wonder (September 1, 2013)
September Theme: Wonder The last two months we have focused on Enjoyment and Manifest. Now we move into September Wonder. Wonder is a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable, the emotion aroused by something awe-inspiring, astounding, or marvelous. Let us take this month to explore the Wonder of the beauty of this Universe, this World, this Life.
Switchphrases: DYNAMIC-BOY-ENHANCE-EVER-EXCITED-GENIUS. (Revitalize with youthful exuberance, open yourself and choose to be seen, keep this going, increase awareness and raise expectations.)
SURPRISE-Light Switch-Encore-JESUS. (Take joy in discovery, illuminate being in the now and be a comforting presence.)
UNCLE-DAZZLE-CHARM-UP. (Dispel untogetherness, show brilliance, manifest your heart's desires and be in high spirits.)
Life is living the hyphen (the time between life and death as shown on the tombstone)...
Wallowing in JOY... BEing in the moment... ALLOWing each to CHOOSE their own way... Accepting others (and yourself) as they (and you) are... Letting GO of judgment... Recognizing that you and you ALONE CHOOSE how you experience life... Remembering that it is all story and that you can CHANGE the story to CHANGE how you feel about it...
And most importantly.... to BE enJOYed to its FULLest!
Never put off until tomorrow the JOY you could experience today.
CONSIDER Changing the Story (August 5, 2013)
One wears filters with regard to everyone in one's life. You bring to the experience stories you have written.
If you are not happy with how the relationship has been, CONSIDER changing the story. That is now the past, and it is only your interpretation of the interactions from the past.
CHOOSE to write a NEW story in the NOW, which then can be brought into the future.
CONSIDER NOW you have great interactions with them. The relationship is beautiful, caring, loving. Imagine it the way you wish it to BE, and BEGIN speaking as though it already is that way.
DIVINE-TOGETHER-REVERSE-RESTORE-TINY-SWEET-MAGNANIMITY-FOR-DIVINE-LOVE-TRICKLE. (Improve interpersonal relationships, bury grudges, restore fairness and honesty, be courteous, kind and polite, be caring, end pettiness and be generous, promote increased personal ability to generate, radiate and experience love and acceptance, and share this.)
Feeling desperation helps to keep a situation in a state that perpetuates desperation. Acceptance of what is allows one to begin to shift to a new reality. (August 4, 2013)
And I just set up an Energy Circle with this and a Switchphrase inside it...
Notice how I put the statement about desperation outside the Energy Circle? That was done to specifically put desperation outside the experience.
Switchwords For... (August 3, 2013)
New experiences (Terrifying.): BLUFF (dispel fear)
Blazing your own trail in life (Intimidating): NEW-WAVE (form innovation, continue the optimal journey)
Following your heart (Risky): TRUST-LOVE (align energies and generate, radiate and experience love and acceptance)
Confirmation that you're absolutely headed in the right direction (Priceless): AWE (be aware of your singular place in the Universe; be your authentic self, the world is better because you are here)
August Theme: Manifest (August 1, 2013)
Manifest The last couple of months we have worked to Simplify and walk into Enjoyment. NOW is the time to Manifest. CONSIDER that perhaps Manifestation is the joyney to the things you desire. Transform your thoughts into action (CREATE) and walk toward your goals. As you do this, OPEN and ALLOW yourself to Manifest.
Switchphrases: CREATE~BREAKTHROUGH~TRUST~Sei Hei Ki~FLOCK~BRING. (Transform thought into action, end hesitation, align physical, emotional and spiritual energies, cleanse, purify, harmonize and protect, lend your strength to others and gain strength from others, and manifest.)
CHARM-ENCHANTED-GOLD-SMORGASBORD. (Manifest your heart's desires, give and get captivated attention, an enduring reward, celebrate variety.)
Flower: California Poppy Flower Energy Blend: Scruples-Manifest Chant/Mantra/Meditation/Prayer: Manifestation Prayer Gemstone/Crystal: Peridot Animal Wisdom: Albatross Number/Frequency: 398 - An Angel Number (New beginnings, expansion. Manifest ample supply and abundance. Trust that all is moving in Divine Order. Closing of one door allows for opening of another. As you see things ending, allow them to leave and you shall soon begin to see new things starting. Now is the time to shift thoughts, actions and efforts to pursue your true desires, wishes and goals.)
Blue Bonnet Positive Qualities: The ability to bring all skills, talents, gifts and motivation to bear fruit now; to make life beautiful now.
Patterns of Imbalance: Losing faith in achieving desired results. Feeling the reward is not worth the effort to create it. Unwilling to take the steps to support the journey you'd like to be on. (DAW)
Switchphrase to enhance: BRING-PASSION-TAKE-53-CONTINUE-PRAISE-RAINBOW-NOW-DONE.
Blue Iris Positive Qualities: Ability to discern whether ideas are coming from Source or Ego. Strengthens ability to create in congruence with Source and authentic self.
Patterns of Imbalance: Confusion when making decisions. Inability to see the bigger picture. Reluctance to consider better choices. (DAW)
Switchphrase to enhance: CRYSTAL-POINT-LISTEN-AWE-CORONA.
And I ran across another Flower Energy also requesting addition this week:
Titan Arum Positive Qualities: Supports creating a beautiful life out of the direst of circumstances; supports redirecting the energy of affliction to a noble cause; reveals purpose in the midst of despair.
Patterns of Imbalance: Self-engrossed; unreliable, procrastinating; living life completely without regard for others; suicidal thoughts (DAW)
Switchphrase to enhance: ELATE-WITH-Mirrored Reflection-Chocolate-UP-TOGETHER-BE.
Many thanks to Dawnalee Shields for defining these beautiful additions.
LIMIT-ARROW-NEXT-GLEAN-EASE. (Set parameters, stay on target, finish lots of meticulous work, learn intricacies to simplify the task at hand.)
Turning Dreams into Reality (July 27, 2013)
CONSIDER you can turn dreams into reality, but it is in you saying it was a dream and you can't have what you dream about that you actually CREATE that you can't have what you dream about. Stop assuming that it cannot BE.
And, it is true...you cannot make anyone else happy. It is not your job to make others happy. In expecting that you can make others happy and not being able to achieve that you cause your own pain. It is not your job...ever.
Your only job is to maintain your focus where you are happy. When you CHOOSE happy, others around you are affected by that choice, and they see additional options, allowing them to be happy too.
Remember...what someone else thinks about you is none of your business, and actually really has nothing to do with you. It has only to do with the filters that they bring to their view of you. And you don't know through which filters they look at you.
What matters is what youthink of other people. Take care of your own filters through which you look at others. For what you think of them is reflected back to you. Use Switchwords as a tool to help you ALLOW your filter to CHANGE.
GLEAN-LAVENDER-Fountain. (Learn intricacies, let go of anxiety, remember that hope springs eternal.)
My World (July 16, 2013)
You CREATE your world with your thoughts, your words.
In my world people have integrity. In my world people are quick to PRAISE and GIVE JOY. In my world people focus on the best things about life. In my world we all look for the golden nuggets. In my world people are absolutely beautiful to be around. That's my world.
How is your world? (Be careful how you answer...this begins to CREATE your future.)

Dragonflies handcrafted by Kat
Legends of the Dragonfly
The Dragonfly represents the powers of light and transformation, and the ability to see through illusion. The Dragonfly brings prosperity and harmony.
The Dragonfly’s magic is its light magic, and all of the wonderful similes, metaphors and clichés that light has inspired. Thus, the Dragonfly has come to be an image that inspires us to not only learn to practice the shedding and mirroring of light in our own lives, but to learn to see when others are doing it too!
The Dragonfly spirit means you must consciously make an effort to express your hopes, dreams, needs and wishes.
The Dragonfly spirit is the essence of the winds of change, messages of wisdom and enlightenment and communication from the elemental world.
Release need, and CHOOSE desires. Need perpetuates need. (July 7, 2013)
July Theme: Enjoyment (July 2, 2013)
We have taken Responsibility, and we have worked to Simplify. Now let us walk forward and enter into Enjoyment. Let us turn our focus to things that bring us Enjoyment. What in your life brings you Enjoyment? Are there people you've been meaning to contact? Places you have been meaning to visit? Things you have been meaning to do? The time is here. TAKE the time to do those things. Let go of the hustle and bustle of the day, GIVE yourself a little HOLIDAY, and simply CENTER in JOY. It can be a minute or two, or a day or two. You deserve some time for Enjoyment. BE there. BE in JOY. ALLOW JOY. It's time.
Switchphrases: TAKE-HOLIDAY-FOR-HEART-JOY. (Lead the way, step out of routine, enjoy yourself, promote centering in joy, give and receive joy.)
BE-EMBRACE-JOY-BEAM. (Be in peace, maintain wellness, be unaffected by ridicule and negative or contrary energy, give and receive complete acceptance, give and receive joy, bring sunshine.)
I LOVE where I am and what I DO. When I DO unreasonable acts of kindness (being kind when it is absolutely not deserving), it is not because I feel dominated or need to please...it is because it always gives me JOY to see what happens when I DO that.
CONSIDER someone is in a very negative focus. They are upset with the world. Nothing is going right for them. They are angry with themselves and the world, and they begin to strike out at the world with anger and frustration. They are in their own world, feeling like nobody cares, like life is too hard.
SUDDENLY a complete stranger goes out of her way to give them a HEART. For at least a moment, but maybe a day, a week or even a lifetime, their focus is changed.
Someone did an unreasonable thing.
They did not join them in their anger. They did not react by shunning them or walking away. They walked through the anger to the person and showed them that, whatever is happening, wherever they are, others are noticing them...and they matter.
I walk in my strengths. I Wallow in JOY. I sink DEEP into high CLOUDS.
A Birthday Poem (June 27, 2013)
A friend sent me this poem for my birthday today, and I thought I would share it here. I am so lucky, I have so many dear friends and family.
A very Happy Birthday to you dear Kat! So much LOVE and care you GIVE selflessly. A poem for you from my HEART.
KAT-THE GUARDIAN ANGEL by Girija Sridhar

Your thoughtful advice works like MAGIC, anywhere you go, You plant seeds of LOVE and JOY, that grow and grow. You are the sunBEAM,that BRINGs warmth and immense cheer, I wish you the very best, in every sphere. You have built a DIVINE chain, that gets stronger every year, Each link is full of LOVE, that makes you so dear. As I think of you on this special day, I thank the Lord, for sending you my way.
Thank you Girija, for a beautiful HEART-felt poem.
How Do I Believe? (June 24, 2013)
Someone said..."I just wonder what is the difference that makes it work for some and not others. ....I do want to believe but it's become a little hard."
CONSIDER it is all story. CONSIDER telling another story. You say "I do want to believe but it's become a little hard." Why carry the "but" with you? What do you want? You want to believe. The "but" changes focus to making it hard to believe, instead of the focus of wanting to believe.
And GET this...when you BEGIN to say that you believe something, you also BEGIN to build that belief...you are creating the belief by stating the belief.
It can't come into your reality if you keep putting up blocks, and all reasons why you can't. All buts, all things that are not directly related to belief interfere with belief.
Words have a powerful creation potential. In fact they DO CREATE on their own. Their vibration creates what they represent, and then we just have to ALLOW it to come to us.
A fascinating thing I watched a while back. A young child had taken money off his grandfather's desk, and then claimed later when he wanted to put it in his piggy bank that he had found the money on the ground somewhere. It was clear that that was not so, but he didn't want to admit it (most people don't want to admit that they have done something that is not in alignment with what others judge is right).
A conversation with the child, showing him all of the evidence that seemed to point to the fact that the money was taken from the grandfather's desk elicited the truth...he took it from his grandfather.
Now, the child was not so interested in admitting this to his grandfather, nor in apologizing for having done this. Fear was there, preventing it. He was letting fear drive him.
It was suggested that the child must apologize anyway..."but I don't know what to say...but I keep forgetting...but I can't..." These were spoken by the child as he was taken to his grandfather, and support of his confidant was there for him, standing to HELP him FIND the words to say.
It was time to admit and to apologize. Words were spoke, and a frightened little boy began his apology. When the words, "I'm sorry" were spoken, suddenly tears were streaming down his face, he was feeling sorrow for what he had done. The fear was gone. The words created the sorrow.
So, my point here is...say the words. I believe. Then see the results.
The old saying, "Seeing is believing" may actually be more accurately stated "Believing is seeing."
Say it. Feel it. BE it.
It just happened. No judgment (or blame) required. (June 23, 2013)
Beta Energy Circle Creator Final Stages (June 20, 2013)
We are coming into the final stages of Beta Testing the Energy Circle Creator. It has been AMAZING working with our Beta Testers, getting feedback and ideas for improving our presentation.
We have incorporated a number of great NEW features in Version 2 of the Beta Energy Circle Creator including:
HEART - HEART Energy Circle has been added to the Top Menu. (HEART Energy Circles add the energy of love, joy and compassion to the Contents of the Energy Circle. A HEART Energy Circle may be useful for working with loved ones, relationships, anywhere that addition of love, joy and compassion may enhance or improve the situation.)
Redraw - a Redraw button has been added to the Top Menu to redraw the image with marked changes/additions. (Clicking on the Energy Circle type still redraws as well.)
Expanded Standard Colors - Components and Text now have extended standard colors available, including Dark and Light shades, and Turquoise shades added.
Footers - Footers can simply be attached to the Energy Circle, allowing you to describe the contents, or can be added below the Image to be included in the graphic. A Footer can also be used to specifically put things outside the Energy Circle.
Text Box/Footer Options - New options available that give ability to block and adjust Font, Size, Attributes and Color quickly and easily (block text and right-click anywhere inside the Text Box to access Font Editor).
Inner Image and Text Box Sizing - Sizing for these two items is now separate and independent.
Larger Text Box Capacity - Energy Circle Text Boxes can now be expanded to the size of the whole image, allowing text to be added outside the Energy Circle, above and/or below.
Text Justification - Text can be set for individual lines, and/or blocked and set for an entire section.
Pen Width - Flower and Heart Energy Circles pen width adjustment is now dynamic. You can see the width adjustment you are making real-time.
LOVE-EVER. (Generate, radiate and experience love and acceptance, keep it going.)
The HEART Horder! (Rewriting a Story) (May 24, 2013)
Experience is 90% story. Rather than trying to release the negative emotions you have swallowed down regarding experiences, CONSIDER changing the story. Only 10% of an experience is actually what happened, the other 90% being what you decided it meant to you, about you, about the world, the Universe, the person(s) also involved in what happened, etc.
ALLOW me to give you an example of one way to CHANGE a story. This is a personal experience that I had last week...
I have a granddaughter whom I tend 5 days a week. I crochet HEARTs all the time. She (and my other two grandchildren) LOVEs to GIVE HEARTs away to people. She has a reputation at school as a HEART source (and me too, as either Kat or Cammarie's grandma). Anyway, we've been doing this for a long time.
The last while in particular one little girl has been there at the school gate looking for us in the mornings, and has every day wanted to have many HEARTs. She said she wanted them to give to friends, etc., but it felt more like she was hording them for herself. That's how the story started out...this little girl is always looking to get HEARTs from me and Cammarie, as many as either and both of us would give her so she could horde them.
Out of that story came a feeling of wanting to avoid her, wanting to LIMIT her to taking just one or two HEARTs a day, perhaps some resentment of her lying about why she wanted more HEARTs (lying is part of the HEART Horder story...I had no way of knowing if she was lying or not).
BOY, that didn't feel good at all! She just a little girl. So....time to CHANGE that story.,,
What if she LOVEs my HEARTs? What if she just wants to KEEP feeling the LOVE I put into the HEARTs as I crochet them because they feel so good to her? What if it is all about LOVE? Oh wow, someone LOVEs my HEARTs! She wants as many as she can have! How SWEET that is. It feels so good to know that someone LOVEs my HEARTs.
Wow, this new story feels really good.
And...as we are driven by our stories (first story about hording drove me to try to avoid her and KEEP HEARTs away from her), I made about 30 HEARTs of varying sizes and colors, put them in a Ziploc bag, along with one of my cards, which has a poem Mom and I wrote last year on it, and wrote, "I gave (her name) all these HEARTs" on the card.
Interestingly, that day she was not at the gate, and I had to purposely seek her out at the playground. When I saw her, I pulled the Ziploc out of my purse and walked over and handed the HEARTs to her.
What happened next? Her eyes got big, she smiled a huge smile, she gasped, she reached out and gave me a DELICIOUS HUG, thanked me profusely, and then had a magnificent day (okay, the magnificent day is my story). NOW that feels AMAZING.
Story is everything. If you don't like how you feel about something, CONSIDER changing the story to something you like. Remember, it's pretty much all story to which you are reacting. That SIMPLE technique (changing your story) can CHANGE your world.
CONSIDER-CHANGE. (Fix it, dispel the pain.)
Fly Giant (An agent for QUIET-RESTORE-CRYSTAL-REACH.) (May 16, 2013)
Monday....when I was emptying my pockets at the end of the day I found that I had lost one of my Violet Energy Bracelets. I looked all OVER pretty much everywhere I had been that day and couldn't FIND it.
I sit at a table near the playground and crochet after school, getting SWARMed by youngsters wanting to LEARN to crochet. I thought perhaps I had lost it out of my pocket there Monday afternoon. So I have kept an eye out FOR it AROUND there all week. No sign of it.
Yesterday I had been focused ON REACH and augmenting Switchwords for REACH. I thought about my bracelet, and thinking that I had probably lost it out of my pocket at the school or a store, thought it was probably long gone, unavailable to me. I thought to myself in the evening...I could use QUIET-RESTORE-CRYSTAL-REACH, since I have this story about it being FOREVER lost.
QUIET to quiet the mind, stop me from making up stories about it.
RESTORE to restore fairness and honesty, so if someone had found it, SOMEHOW they would GET it back to me, even though there is no way FOR them to identify whose it is.
CRYSTAL to ADD a piece of MAGIC into the MIX.
Then of course REACH to FIND my bracelet.
NOW...fast forward to this morning (Thursday). I had the single bracelet that matched the lost one in my pocket, along WITH another pair of bracelets, as I always KEEP a pair WITH me to HELP whenever I run into a situation where they will BE useful FORReflex Muscle Testing.
I pick up Cammarie and TAKE her to school. There's a great parking space available for US. I GET out of the truck, and standing there, ON the footing of a LIGHT pole I parked NEXT to is this huge, and when I say huge I mean humungus, ginormous fly. It looks like an ordinary fly but it is probably 10 times the size of any other fly I have EVER seen. It's big enough to BE a Dragonfly, but the body is thick like a housefly, and the WINGS are CLEAR and folded back like a housefly.
I am fascinated by this Fly Giant. I tell Cammarie we have a friend here greeting US. She CLIMBs out and walks AROUND the pole and looks at him. "Wow he's scary Grandma." No worries. He's just a fly. He CONTINUEs to HOLD his stance as we look at him. We don't approach him TOO close.
Then, I turn a little, something catches my eye. WHAT?????
Sitting about a quarter of a turn AROUND the pole away from our friend, Fly Giant, is my bracelet. It's UP there ON the footing, WAITing FOR me. I must have parked near that same parking space ON Monday, and lost the bracelet out of my pocket. Then someone found it and placed it ON that footing for me to FIND. And my friend, Fly Giant took it as his job to WAIT FOR me and GUARD my bracelet, then GET my ATTENTION so I would see it.
So, the way I see it, the Universe LOVEs me! I used Switchwords to beckon it to RESTORE my bracelet and the Universe bent OVER backward to DO it. The Universe ENROLLed a kind soul who saw it ON the ground to PUT it UP where it was easily visible, and out of harm's way. The Universe beckoned others to KEEP away from it, and let it WAIT for me so it could BE RESTOREd. And the Universe asked Fly Giant to ENCHANT me until I saw my bracelet and it was RESTOREd to me.
NOW that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Sideways Uno (May 9, 2013)
My grandson, Dean, and I created a whole NEW game for Uno. He coined the term "Sideways Uno."
We decided to address it totally different from the original rules. He's 5. He loves this way of playing.
Sideways Uno Rules:
1. You cannot play the color or the number that is showing. You must play something that does not match the top card in the discard pile.
2. If you play a + card (+1, +2 or +4) YOU must draw the specified number of cards.
3. If you play a Reverse cardYOU must take a card from another player's hand (you choose whose cards you pick from).
4. If you play a Skip card, YOU must skip your next turn.
5. The Four-Color Change card keeps the color the same as the card played just before it (so the next person cannot play that color).
6. If you say Uno when you have one card left, you must draw two cards.
It tends to work better to deal 7, 9 or 11 cards, rather than just 5, as it tends to be easier to empty your hand playing this way, but it is lots of fun!
Thoughts About Instant Manifestation (May 8, 2013)
When you are in the NOW, focused on just BEing, you tend to have an easier time with Instant Manifestation.
What is your default setting? Where do you spend most of your focus? That is where the Instant Manifestation tends to happen.
For me, it is in healing and helping.
One amazing Instant Manifestation happened a couple of years ago. I was at the store. I had been walking through the store with one of those hand baskets for probably 10-15 minutes. I came around the end of an aisle and saw a lady standing about 10 feet away. She was struggling to hold onto all the things she was intending to buy. I locked eyes with her. In that instant she and I both thought to ourselves she really needed a hand basket. I heard a crash at my feet. There was a hand basket. Apparently either I had a second basket attached to the one I was carrying when I picked it up and it chose that very second to let go of the one I was carrying, or it simply dropped in out of thin air. Whatever happened, I saw someone in need and I gave them supply. It happened instantly, because that is my default focus...be helpful.
Wherever you KEEP your focus is where you wind UP WITH Instant Manifestation.
NOW is the Switchword to act on good impulse, to end procrastination, to be in the current moment.
CHARM is to manifest your heart's desires.
Perhaps CHARM-NOW would be useful in helping with Instant Manifestation.
Divine and Angel Numbers (May 5, 2013)
I was asked about Divine Numbers and Angel Numbers. My take on them:
Divine Numbers originated as a a Sufi method of healing based on the numerical values of Divine names and attributes.
Angel Numbers were originally repeating number sequences said to come from Angel Guides as a way of communicating with you. However, much as Animal Wisdom allows for you to call on Animals to share their Wisdom with you as you desire, rather than relying on one or two Animals throughout your life, you can utilize Angel Numbers to bring about what they represent.
Just as Animal Wisdom can be a two-way street - messages requesting help from the Animals and Animals specifically coming to us to share their Wisdom, so can we make requests of our Angels, besides acknowledging messages coming from them.
May Theme: Responsibility The last two months we have worked with Nurture and Patience. NOW we are set to BEGIN to TAKE Responsibility. In Responsibility we recognize and acknowledge that where we are in our lives is a direct result of decisions we have made up to this point. When we CHOOSE to let go of blame, of ourselves and others, for things that have affected us in our lives, we BEGIN to reclaim our creative power, giving us the ability to build a life of our choosing.
RESPONSIBILITY A Poem by Girija Sridhar
May says - fulfill promises, TAKE responsibility, FOR every action, GIVE accountability. WITH responsibility comes decision-making power, Ends needless discord, creeping in every other hour. Being loyal, being fair becomes a part of you, You GUIDE by example, have an OPEN view. How the other is affected, you understand and realize, To outcomes and repercussions, you become wise. Responsibility lays the foundation to receiving and accepting clarity, And in you one FINDs, complete trust and honesty. You possess the ability to look ahead, to think, WITH Wisdom you look back, WITH conviction, you form a link. Responsibility teaches you the value of cause and effect, And this in your character, you amply project.
Switchphrases: ALIGN-KEEP-53-SKY-CRYSTAL-BUBBLE. (Support being safe, taking responsibility, open closed viewpoints, let go of limitations, look to the future, clarify things and expand beyond perceived limitations.)
RAINBOW-REFLECT-ROGER-REMISSION-RENDEZVOUS. (Fulfill promises, look within the details, gain advantage, receive and accept clarity, look to the future with positive expectations, meeting of the minds to mutual benefit with equitable combing and distribution of resources, time and expertise.)
This morning, I ran into a lady with whom I had a deep discussion about an experience where, in her mind's eye, she saw something distressful happen to a friend. She shared it with the friend, who scoffed at her, and then sometime later the incident referred to actually happened. The friend then got upset with her, thinking she made it happen.
What's going on here?
My thoughts about something like this....
What if what she had see was what I would call a "future echo," seeing of something that may happen in the future before it happens?
What if a future echo is simply the Universe letting us know that if things continue along the current timeline that there is a great possibility of what is seen in the future echo actually happening?
What if a future echo is simply one way of getting forewarning about something, allowing an opportunity to make changes that prevent or enhance it?
What if everything is connected in time and space, and making a shift can change what the future holds?
What if, when one see a future echo which involves someone they care about and they take action they don't normally take, which then shifts the timeline between the person they saw in the future echo and themselves, which in turn shifts the future event? Like the Butterfly Effect. (From Wikipedia... In chaos theory, the Butterfly Effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions, where a small change at one place in a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences to a later state. The name of the effect, coined by Edward Lorenz, is derived from the theoretical example of a hurricane's formation being contingent on whether or not a distant butterfly had flapped its wings several weeks before.)
What if worries and negative thoughts, scenarios, coming to you are just giving you an opportunity to shift timelines to what you want?
What if worries are just beckoning you to move into the now and pay attention to what you want?
It is not necessary to share your worries with those for whom you worry. Instead try stepping out of your normal routine with them, and do something different, change the timeline, and ALLOW the worries to ZERO OFF.
The future is written in possibilities, until it becomes the NOW!
Instead of focusing on Murphy's law (which I will not quote), how about focusing on Bijan's Law? Whatever can go right, will go right.
ALLOW-ZERO-worries-OFF-NOW. (Release, dissipate worries, put them to sleep, act on good impulse, now.)

Switchwords FAQ (April 27, 2013)
Recently I had someone ask me a few Switchwords questions, and I thought I'd share my answers with you:
Do declaring Switchwords in our mind once, chanting Switchwords and writing Switchwords, all have same effect? or does writing Switchwords give faster results?
It is more how you ALLOW the Switchwords to work FOR you than which way you use them. Some tend to ALLOW them to be more effective if they set intent, say the word then MOVE ON and forget about it. Some FIND if they intently repeat a Switchword it works FOR them more quickly. Some FIND writing them in an Energy Circle and then moving ON works fast FOR them. There is no one answer here.
It is in making the request, knowing it is coming, and letting GO of need that you ALLOW fruition.
When we write Switchwords on a drinking water bottle or inside an Energy Circle, is it necessary to write in capital letters only? Does it affect the results? or is normal writing okay?
To distinguish Switchwords from normal English words, James T. Mangan presented them in FULL caps. Nirav continued same, and so DO I. It really does not matter if you write them in FULL caps, all lower case or anywhere in BETWEEN. It is simply the word you want. So the short answer is normal writing is fine.
According to your experiences, after we print an Energy Circle and keep it on our working desk, approximately how much time it take to get results from it?
Results vary from situation to situation and person to person. It is all about the ALLOW. To ALLOW it you have to stop feeling the lack, the need, having to have it. Let it GO to ALLOW it to BE.
You mentioned once to, "Just place your order with Universe and then wait. Don't get desperate, attached and obsessed with the outcomes." So I'm DOing the same (and the Switchwords are not working for me).
This note is kind of showing that you are not. Quit noticing that it is "not working" to ALLOW it to work. I know, it can be a tough concept.
Switchwords always work. I saw ON your website so many testimonials, and in our Switchwords group also many members have reported their Success Stories. That means, it works. Then I wonder, Why didn't it work for me? That's very unfair.
The world is never fair. You don't get what you want. You get what you ALLOW. You get more of what you don't want when you KEEP screaming that you don't want it. When you BEGIN to feel that it is there (even when it is not) you BEGIN to draw it to you. CONSIDER this... Let GO that Switchwords have to work. Let GO that they didn't work FORyou. Let GO that life is unfair. Let it all GO.
What DO you want? State it cleanly, in a NUTSHELL. No reasons why you want it. No reasons why you can't have it. Nothing but what you want. Write it down. Circle it. Set it aside. Forget about it. Just leave it be and live. Take each day as it comes. Start it WITH a GIGGLE and a smile (MONA LISA). Whistle while you work.
Switchwords are catalysts. They HELP to jump-start you. They GIVE you inspiration to make moves and DO things that PUT you in the right place at the right time FOR miracles to happen. Switchwords sometimes just make things happen, no action taken. But often they spur you into action. When you use Switchwords, LISTEN to your inner voice, promptings. When you feel a desire to DO something outside your ordinary path, DO it. KEEP yourself OPEN to ALLOW shifts to happen. And most importantly, when you feel fear about doing something...don't stop, DO it anyway...BLUFF (dispel fear). It is staying in our comfort zone, not doing things that STRETCH us, holding onto old concepts and ways that prevents us from progressing. CHOOSE to MOVE forward.
CONSIDER that you may have PUT yourself under a deadline that made you feel uncomfortable. You asked Switchwords to fix something that you felt, you believed, was unfixable, but you prayed FOR a MIRACLE to happen. You feared it would not. So NOW let it GO. Deadline passed. Did you die? Are you still here? Okay, worst that could happen didn't happen. Good. NOW then, let us let GO of all that is past. It happened. No changing it. Can only MOVE forward from here. CHOOSE it. SOMEHOW you already have, because you have lived it. To BE empowered FOR the NOW and the future, CHOOSE what already has been and what is NOW. Lay WITH it. BE WITH it. Accept it, then let GO of it and CHOOSE where you wish to GO NOW. And NOW REACH FOR that. BE that.
Writing on Water (April 27, 2013)
A Success Story...
A friend told me that someone close to her was dealing with Alzheimer's, and that a doctor had suggested using Strattera, a medication used for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to help with focus, attention and awareness. They gave samples and it really helped, and it also helped increase appetite (which was needed). The cost, however, was prohibitive.
It was suggested that writing "Strattera" on water vessels, or perhaps even on the body may help to bring the positive effects they had experienced with the medication.
Today I heard back from my friend that there has a substantial change since writing Strattera on the bottom of glasses from which the person drinks water, and writing it on a post-it, and placing it on the body under the clothing. There is much more awareness, communication, attention and focus, and appetite has increased, just as it had when taking the medication.
The power of a word.
You don't get what you want. You get what you ALLOW. (April 24, 2013)
CHOOSE-SIMPLE-LOVE (April 20, 2013)
Taken from the Switchwords Database, a repository for Switchwords, Defusing Words, Switchphrases and success stories:
CHOOSE-SIMPLE-LOVE. (Release old pains, gain perspective and generate, radiate and experience love and acceptance.
Kat's Switchphrase for April 2, 2012.
For opening one up to self-love.
Kat, I want to tell you this combination moved me immediately. I have never been drawn to a combination in such a manner before. I placed my hands on some parts of my body that I have been experiencing pain and meditated with the combination. I had two HUGE emotional releases and it was perfectly clear what the blockages were from. It was the most amazing experience for me! You are such a BLESSING! Thank you so much!
CHOOSE-SIMPLE-LOVE is working wonders for me. Instant pain relief! Thank you Kat. I had lower back pain and pain at my soles of feet. Chanted CHOOSE-SIMPLE-LOVE. Feeling the pain melt away!!
I chanted CHOOSE-SIMPLE-LOVE this morning during my yoga practice and truly, my practice FLOWED! This sw phrase is fast becoming one of my favorites!
I chanted CHOOSE-SIMPLE-LOVE this morning when I was in a business meeting and I was coughing and couldn't talk...the air conditioner doesn't suit me. However, my throat quickly (in a few seconds) settled down and I was able to do my part of the presentation without coughing. And my throat is fine now too!
NEW! Energy Circle Creator (April 20, 2013)
For the past few months we have been working on a program to simplify creating Energy Circles. Until now it has been a bit of an arduous task to create Energy Circles on the computer, especially if you want to have Concentric Energy Circles, Energy Circles with Rays, FLOWER Energy Circles, etc.
The Energy Circle Creator is NOW in the final stages of development and we are looking for people to help in Beta Testing it. Watch a short demonstration of the EASE in using Energy Circle Creator: http://blueiris.biz/ecc.swf.html
Creating Energy Circle Sandwiches (April 18, 2013)
What are Energy Circle Sandwiches? Energy Circle Sandwiches are two similar Energy Circles drawn or printed and placed facing each other, with whatever is to BE addressed by them placed BETWEEN them.
How do Energy Circle Sandwiches work? Unlike regular Energy Circles, which broadcast their content to the Requester(s) and (if applicable) the Focus(es), Energy Circle Sandwiches pull the CONCERNS to them and work on them in the space of the Energy Circle Sandwich. This allows for innumerable Energy Circle Sandwiches to be active, working for any Requester(s) at any time.
What are the components used in an Energy Circle Sandwich?
Energy Circles - circles drawn or printed on paper
Energy Circle Sandwich - two similar Energy Circles drawn or printed on separate pieces of paper then put together, facing each other, with Requester(s), Subject(s), Focus(es) and/or CONCERNS either within both Energy Circle or on papers BETWEEN them
Requester(s) - person/people/thing requesting or for whom the Energy Circles are being made
Subject(s) - Switchphrases, Numbers, Frequencies, Homeopathic Remedies, etc., to be applied to the contents (Requester(s), CONCERNS and/or Focus(es))
Focus(es) - person(s), places, things, to included in the broadcast of the information inside the Energy Circles
CONCERNS - things within the relationship between the Requester(s) and themselves and/or the Focus(es), to be addressed by the Subject (pain, leg cramp, relationship, whatever)
How do we make Energy Circle Sandwiches?
CREATE two similar Energy Circles.
Place one Energy Circle face-up ON a flat surface.
Place paper(s) with Requester(s), CONCERNS and/or Focus(es) ON top of the Energy Circle.
Place second Energy Circle ON top of the paper(s) facing DOWN, creating an Energy Circle Sandwich.
Remove and insert Requester(s), CONCERNS and Focus(es) as desired.
Additional Information Papers BETWEEN the two Energy Circles do not necessarily have to be completely within the bounds of the Energy Circles, as, just like a Sandwich often has overhang outside the bread that you can STILL eat, things overhanging the edges of the two Energy Circles is STILL "eaten" by the Energy Circle Sandwich.
You can stack papers as you wish BETWEEN the Energy Circles, FOR whatever Focus(es) you wish to have addressed.
We have found that an Energy Circle Sandwich will OPEN additional possibilities. The Energy Circle Sandwich removes the Focus from being directly in your energy field, allowing you to have however many Energy Circle Sandwiches you wish.
The original Energy Circles, which go direct to your energy field still remain with a limit of 3 per person. If you CREATE more than that, you may cause either overwhelm or some of the Energy Circles to go inactive. As you do not know which ones will be deactivated, or if it will be overwhelm, it is wisest to KEEP those to a maximum of 3.
CONSIDER the Energy Circle Sandwiches as a completely different technique, not attached to the regular Energy Circles and therefore not affecting how many of the regular Energy Circles you can make.
TAKE some time and PLAY WITH Energy Circle Sandwiches, see what they can DO FOR you.
How Many Switchwords? (April 12, 2013)
A question was posed: I was wondering are switchword combinations more effective than single Switchwords, like the words TOGETHER and DIVINE for example, do they need to combined with other Switchwords?
I think it depends on the person and the situation, even on belief systems. DIVINE and TOGETHER can certainly be used alone separate, or even as a Switchpair. I also find that if you are wanting to work on relationships, with self, adding the TOGETHER-DIVINE can be substantially enhancing, and between two or more people, DIVINE-TOGETHER.
If there is a single Switchword which by itself encompasses exactly what you want. In that case that Switchword by itself may be the best way to go.
Sometimes two Switchwords combine to create a new vibration that gives you more than you would get using them individually. One example of that is CRYSTAL-HORSE: CRYSTAL – clarify the situation, things; look to the future; improve clairvoyance; purify; neutralize; access Universal Knowledge
HORSE – be solid; be strong; gain power
CRYSTAL-HORSE - increase self-confidence and self-worth
Though as you can see neither CRYSTAL nor HORSE in definition mentions self-confidence or self-worth, yet the combination brings those qualities out. We have seen a lot of great successes in helping people to build self-confidence and self-worth with this combination. I am not sure that using one or the other of the individual words would have made that kind of difference.
Some people may believe that when you work with more than two or three Switchwords together they begin to lose potency, and if the belief is there, that will almost certainly be the experience.
I personally feel like just as a run-on sentence may lose its meaning in the complexity of the sentence, so might one begin to lose efficacy with Switchwords if you run too many together. Perhaps expressing the desires you have in as few Switchwords as you easily can is a good way to use them. However, again, how you see it and believe it can have a major impact on how they work best for you.
For me, I find 1, 2, 3 and 4 word Switchphrases are usually most powerful, but there are times when longer ones do apply, and are very effective.
I personally create Switchphrases by setting intention on what it is that is desired and using Reflex Muscle Testing to find the preferred Switchword combination(s) for it. I find most of the time with this technique the phrases are fairly short, but have seen them get as long as 7 to 10 Switchwords.
Richness in one area of life tends to spill into other areas. KEEP spilling... (April 8, 2013)
Patience (396 Hz) A Poem by Girija Sridhar (April 1, 2013)
Come April, we MOVE on to Patience. It HELPs to cope, BRING about BALANCE. Sometimes FOR problems, there is no END in sight. Burden is heavy, wish it BE LIGHT. But Patience when you EMBRACE, the path will turn. Progress is ON the way, you will soon LEARN. Life is a gift, Patience a virtue. TAKE comfort, God walks WITH you. Over time you CHANGE, you TRANSFORM. CLOUDS CLEAR, you REACH the PERFECT platform. When Patience you befriend, often WISDOM follows, You maintain CALM, no matter the highs and lows. Welcome Patience into your life, WATCH MIRACLEs unfold. In all spheres you will discover GOLD, GOLD and only GOLD!
Here is what we are developing for the April Theme:
Theme: Patience Having focused on Harmony and Nurture the last couple of months, we can now move into Patience. Patience helps allay discord and bring rewards. Extending patience in trying times helps bring one calmly through an experience, ride out the storm and arrive serenely on the other side, often bringing greater wisdom to the individual. When tyrannical ego suggests interceding or interjecting, often holding one's tongue with patience, allowing the fervor to subside, gives one the opportunity to grasp more details, see other perspectives and maintain peace and serenity in a space which could have jeopardized a relationship.
A farmer sows his seeds and in patience reaps great rewards.
Saturn, the great educator, also helps teach us patience.
Switchphrases: INTEGRATE-THANKS-SHOW-SLOW-ADJUST. (Embrace and bond with releasing guilt, and stop regretting, be devout, moral and give respect, be patient and wise, create balance.)
JUDGE-AROUND-Bypass-CLEAR-PRAISE-BE-SLOW. (Increase comprehension, gain perspective, defuse need to participate in unwelcome situations, dispel anger and resentment, stop being critical, be unaffected by ridicule and negative or contrary energy, be patient and wise.)
Themes for all Months, and for 2013 are available at: http://themes.blueiris.org
CHOOSE-BE-UP (March 27, 2013)
Let go of the negative perspectives on it all, and ALLOW yourself to BE, regardless of what is happening.
Focusing on all the things that make you feel hopeless will keep you feeling hopeless. Perhaps instead look for things that make you feel good.
What is is. Accept it. CHOOSE it. FOR in accepting it, you ALLOW yourself to ALIGN WITH the current space, which is the only place from which you can build a different future.
CONSIDER the taxi scenario....
You want to go somewhere, perhaps to a party. You call a taxi service. You tell them your desired destination. You ask them to please take you there.
They ask you where you are. You say...I don't want to be here, I want to be there! Please take me there!
They repeat...where are you? You continue to insist that you don't want to be here...you want to be there and refuse to acknowledge where you are so you can be taken to where you want to go.
Kind of RIDICULOUS, isn't it?
CHOOSE-NOW. From there you can progress (GO) and MOVE ON.
Conversation with Kat: Soulmate (March 27, 2013)
I thought I'd start a series here taken from conversations I have had with friends, some of whom have returned to me asking me to share them with others.
Friend: What if one meets a soulmate and for whatsoever reason does not CHOOSE to recognize and realizes later?
What if one is seeking to marry a soulmate? What if one feels that there is only one soulmate and has missed to be with him/her?
Kat's Reply: CONSIDER you have more than a single soul mate here on this Earth. CONSIDER looking at what attracts you to him and placing an order for those characteristics in a love to be discovered.
For Example: I like his care free attitude I like the bond we share I like his height His personality He is respectful and cares about me He enjoys life Is fun loving Takes his own decisions Bold Health conscious Lives by his own rules Is non-judgmental His smile The way he speaks His voice He is courageous He encourages me to pursue my dreams He gives me space to be myself Ì am able to express myself to him He is patient He is a good listener He is a good friend And yes he is smart, intelligent and good looking, etc.
Write down whatever you like about that person. Focus on that. It is okay to have missed what you have missed...you can't CHANGE what you have DONE in the past, so CHOOSE it.
CHOOSE to LEARN from what has been, and MOVE forward without regret. Accept what is and then decide where you wish to GO NOW.
FORGIVE yourself for not knowing any better before...because, well you didn't know any better before. NOW that you are in a space of BEGINning to understand more thoroughly how to work WITH your goals and aspirations, just BE.
CHOOSE-LEARN-MOVE-FORGIVE-NOW-WITH-BE. (Release old pains, rejuvenate, clear inertia, eliminate remorse, act on good impulse, harmonize well with being in peace and wellness, unaffected by ridicule and negative or contrary energy.)
To Gain Something... (March 24, 2013)
Some of my thoughts on this proverb which has been told for ages... "To gain something, we have to lose something."
I CHOOSE a very different and some may say amazing perspective on the above.
To lose something, you want to gain something too. CONSIDER when you "lose" a negative thought, something must replace the space that is opened. In this space you may have expansion of another negative or you can fill the space with something positive.
CONSIDER you OPEN space, and fill it. Whether you just let whatever fill it or you CHOOSE what you fill it with.
You could CHOOSE to see the above statement in a different way.
For example: When you smile, you lose hatred. When you DANCE you gain JOY and you lose the stress in your body.
When you give something, you "lose" it to someone else. But why see it as a loss?
Why not see it as a CLEARing to be filled with what you want?
So what if....
You CHOOSE to CREATE a CLEARing and BRING in what you want.
ENGAGE - occupy possibilities.
CLEAR-CONSIDER-OPEN-CHOOSE-DANCE-JOY-CREATE-BRING-ENGAGE. (Dispel anger and resentment, fix with comprehension, dispelling inhibitions, releasing old pains, feeling joy, increasing bliss, transform thought into action, deliver the goods and occupy possibilities.)
Calling Flower Energies (March 24, 2013)
My thoughts regarding calling the Flowers with Emotional Freedom file Passive Modifications versus with the Flower Energies vial....
CONSIDERChocolate milk. Say you LOVEChocolate milk.
You go to a gourmet and have him prepare gourmet Chocolate milk for you. It is smooth and delicious, heavenly.
Now, you FIND the gourmet Chocolate milk in a store and buy it. It is delicious, but the ambiance is not the same as actually having the gourmet prepare it specifically for you while you are in his presence.
Next you buy a powdered mix for Chocolate milk and make your`own Chocolate milk by adding it to milk. It is good, but it is just not the same as either of the two experiences above.
CONSIDER that the gourmet Chocolate milk made and enjoyed in the presence of the gourmet himself as similar to experiencing the Flowers live surrounding you, embracing you. A wonderful experience.
CONSIDER the gourmet Chocolate milk bought from a store to be similar to the Flower Energies from the Flower Energies vial. You have the live energies of the Flowers, but you do not have the visual of the Flowers, the ambiance they bring by having the physical Flowers with you.
CONSIDER the Chocolate milk you mix from powder as similar to calling the Flowers from the Passive Modifications file linked to the Emotional Freedom vial. You are not in direct contact with the Flower Energies. It is still a good experience, but not quite the same.

A few weeks ago fresh strawberries were on sale for about half the usual price. I bought many, and froze a bunch. I flash froze them individually then bagged them.
One of the stores here often sells ripe bananas for half -price. These bananas are at the peak of ripeness. I peeled and froze the ripe bananas I bought. I froze them whole except for skin.
This morning I put about 4 strawberries and one banana in the blender, then poured cream over them, added a little orange juice and blended.
The results were MAGIC-DAZZLE-GOLD. Instant Strawberry Banana Ice Cream.
Next time I may drop the orange juice and just add a little more cream.
A-Z of Switchwords (March 22, 2013)
I wanted to share here poem written by Girija Sridhar about our Switchwords group on Facebook.

What If I Pray Over My Food But Don't Believe in God? (March 16, 2013)
CONSIDER the Law of Attraction works according to your focus, so if you are praying for food to nourish you and saying words of thanks over it, then you are affecting the energy of the food...whether you are saying to God, Universe, or whatever provided the food.
Take some tap water. Unfiltered. Taste it. Write LOVE on the glass with your finger. Taste it.
Did you pray? No. You just put positive vibrations of LOVE into the water.
See what it did?
Happy Switchwords (March 16, 2013)
I was asked about a Switchword for happiness. There are so many ways to come to a space of happiness...and it is something that comes from focus, from within...something we CHOOSE by our focus. These are the Switchwords and Defusing Words that come to my mind:
I do not see a Switchword with "happy/happiness" as part of its definition, but there are some for similar things:
TOGETHER - the Master Switchword - may be what you want.
BE - to be in peace and wellness, unaffected by ridicule and negative energy - seems very appropriate here too.
NOW - to act on good impulse (and to me to be in the current moment) - may also be useful.
Additional Switchwords that seem to apply:
DANCE – feel joy GIGGLE - enjoy the task at hand HEART – center in joy HOLIDAY – enjoy yourself JOLLY – create enjoyment JOY – give and receive joy SURPRISE – feel elated; take joy in discovery
And a few Defusing Words:
Curry Curry is about defusing pain and inflammation. Curry is about reconnecting with joyful memories to help defuse and remove painful, invading thoughts and feelings. Curry is about letting go of inflammatory thoughts about ourselves and others. Curry is about allowing joyful movement through the life experience.
Dancing Cane Dancing Cane is about catching the negative bits and pieces, sweeping them away and filling the spaces left behind with joy. Dancing Cane is about feeling uplifted and joyful. Dancing Cane is about releasing, letting go, and removing destructive thoughts. Use Dancing Cane to enjoy the current moment, the NOW.
Sunflower Sunflower is about dissolving and defusing blocks created by past memories, beliefs and rules limiting our access to joy. Sunflower gently soothes irritations and disharmonies to lift spirits and allow us to harmonize with joy and happiness. Sunflower brings us to the now, releasing focus on past and future, allowing us to experience the now in joy and happiness.
Teapot Whistle Teapot Whistle is about defusing and releasing stresses of the day. Teapot Whistle helps create a time of relaxation, soothing and bonding. Teapot Whistle signals time for calmness and peace. Teapot Whistle inspires joy and sharing wonderments of the day with family and friends in a comfortable, warm environment.
I trust this information will be helpful for you.
I Need to RELEASE and Let Go (March 15, 2013)
Excerpts from a conversation with a friend...
Friend: I seem to have held onto something. I need to RELEASE and let go.
Friend: I don’t like them. They are being nice to me and I don’t like them. I have an attitude it seems. I have been trying to shake it all morning, but it’s sticking for some reason… Perhaps not getting an apology, but I shouldn’t make myself need an apology.
Kat: You resent that they see you as the enemy often.
Friend: It’s all in my control for sure. Yes, I do resent that. It bothers me that they think I’m the problem.
Kat: But you see.... you never can control another.... and here you are wanting to control how they see you. You feel like you give and give and give and give, and bend and bend and bend and bend, and still they see you as the enemy. It is not your fault. It is because of the filters they are wearing and has nothing to do with you, and you are being very judgmental of them.
Friend: I see.
Kat: Because of your own filters.
Kat: Yeah...you expect them to do what you would do, and.... they expect you to do what they expect you to do, often without even saying what they expect of you. And they resent you for not knowing what they want before they know it, and yes often they have no idea what they want.
You see, in LOVE there are no expectations. You can have wants, and desires. You can have LOVE without expectations. Expectations…they'll get you every time…fill you with resentment, because you expected something of someone, and more often than not they don't even realize you expected something.
Like…how many times have you been yelled at for doing something you didn't know you did to offend them?
They have expectations, unstated and unfulfilled, and they JUDGE it as you are the problem, just as you have expectations of them, which go unfulfilled, and you JUDGE them, and you blame them for not fulfilling on your expectations.
LOVE is accepting a person...exactly as they are, with no need to change them, and exactly as they are not, again with no need to change them. They are not apologetic...they don’t understand how they are wrong when you JUDGE them as wrong. They don’t see it. Their filters don’t allow it. They have deep fear of being wrong, of being found out to be wrong, so their filters are very sharp and tight. They see you through many filters. They have conclusions they have made about you, they see you with the conclusions already made. They are trying to be nice, and you are refusing to accept that into your filter, because you hold judgments against them. They don’t need to apologize for you to forgive them. What if they can't apologize? What if they closed themselves down so much they can't apologize?
You can accept an ungiven apology, because it is you who is hurt by holding the grudge. Not them.
REVERSE to bury grudges.
20 minutes later…
Friend: Wow. Just had a RELEASE. Wow.
Friend: Wow. I hope that becomes a Kat Thought. It’s amazing.
And so it is.

My Mornings (March 5, 2013)
Often I awaken 30-40 minutes before I need to.
I usually put the tea kettle on, surf for a few minutes on the net, assess what has happened over night.
I often have crocheted items I made the night before waiting for me to charge with positive vibrations, or perhaps awaiting stiffening, so sometimes I spend some of that time in that manner.
If I am feeling like I don't want to get out of bed, I will start off with BUBBLE-UP-MOVE-NOW, which seems to energize me and get me out of bed.
About an hour before time to leave home I take a relaxing shower, and get ready to go. I spend any extra time before I have to leave home catching up on email and groups, then FLOW-ON-OVER to catch Cammarie and whisk her off to school.
We talk on the way to school, setting our intents for the day. She uses a little technique I was taught several years back, called "Goal Setting." She makes two fists, then bangs them TOGETHER with the little finger sides hitting each other while she says her intentions for the day and calls Switchwords to help enhance them.
We then walk casually to her classroom, sometimes giving out hearts along the way. We watch for people wearing hearts on their clothes, or on their backpacks. We watch for people feeling out of sorts or sad, and she steps up to them with a smile and a hand full of HEARTs (crocheted - see at http://heart.blueiris.org asking if they want one.
I leave her at her classroom with hearts in her backpack, in case anything comes up during the day requiring hearts, and stroll off to begin the rest of my day.
It's all about focus.
You have to get up and go to work? Call it PLAY and FIND ways to look forward to it. Then BEGIN.
