Do happy things. Hang around with happy people. Focus on what is good and worthwhile in your life. Here are some tips, places, and things that make Aunty happy.

Is Oprah a big deal?

Watching Wayne Dyer's video on Wishes Fulfilled took Aunty on a search journey online about a movie he was involved with called "The Shift" produced by Oprah Winfrey's channel. This online journey took me to Oprah.com, the website of the famous Oprah Winfrey. Aunty never really got into Oprah before.  Our neighbor, Mrs. T would watch daily, almost religiously, as she rode her exercise bicycle every day at 4 ...

Looking forward to 2017

Lani Kwon, a life coach that Aunty had the pleasure of listening to, sent Aunty an email with a link to an insightful article, entitled "Let go or be dragged into 2017". Based on numerology, the numbers 2, 0, 1, 6 add up to 9 - which is a very fiery, emotional, intense number that also signifies the end of cycles with sudden shocks, dramatic endings, and tying up loose ends. Which will lead us into 2017. Th ...

Whatcha doing?

Nick Polizzi is the Director at The Sacred Science team.  Aunty forgets how she found them, but it began with watching a documentary that they did in the jungles of Peru, taking 8 very ill people to a healing camp.  No running water, no electricity, bugs and critters, strange rituals, and primitive smashed root and bark meals prepared by people that did not speak their language, at all.  One of the rituals ...

Sharing

Aunty is the type of person that holds everything in.  It was how I was raised, and it has served me well thus far.  Maintaining pride, avoiding shame, putting on a smiling face that says that everything is alright.  Very Japanese.  My ancestors would be proud of me. This tradition and upbringing has been Aunty's cloak of invisibility and comfort.  This has been possible because of the undeniable Universal ...

What are you holding on to?

This was originally written 2 years ago and not posted until today, in concurrence with Aunty's "Sharing" post. During the 8th session with Dr. Hana Yin at Brain Fitness Hawaii (no longer in business), something popped into Aunty's consciousness. It started with a question:  What are you holding on to? For Aunty, it was anger and resentment, holding on to bad memories, recalling of upsetting words spoken, a ...

No get huhu

You know the feeling - getting huhu is when you get all mad and ticked off.  One of Aunty's jobs is answering the phone, like a dispatcher or receptionist.  Most people are nice - especially sales people until you inform them that you aren't interested in claiming your millions of dollars from the Reader's Digest sweepstakes. Some people are quite rude because they only want to speak with the boss instead o ...

Answer the question, please.

There was drama of the highest OOPS! factor during the 2015 Miss Universe pageant with Miss Columbia being first tapped, then untapped as the winner, and Steve Harvey becoming the biggest blunder man on the planet. Aunty used to watch these pageants in the past, but stopped watching decades ago.  It happened after an episode in which each contestant was asked the same question.  Each of them took a breath, ...

Make like a tree and ….

Aunty received an email from Nick of The Sacred Science team (no - not Scientology or wizard stuff) and it quoted Rumi.  Rumi was a 13th century Persian poet, scholar and mystic.  One beautiful quote attributed to him is "Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along." Another less beautiful but very wise quote is "Make like a tree and let the dead leaves drop." Nick's January 7 blog ...

What a man wants

Us women all know what we want and most men are mystified about that, but do we know what men want, other than just about their testosterone? Perhaps this explains the honeymoon syndrome, when the relationship is bliss and wonderful.  Some couples are able to continue that state of bliss, while others fall off of it quite quickly.  Once off, it is hard to get back on the bliss wagon - but not impossible. He ...
