The Hara: The Belly’s Inner Magic Button (VI)

“You need to wiggle your toes…” His gloved hand plucks a kitten off the floor and I approach them with a tumeric/coconut oil salve on a toothbrush. We’re on a mission to render these kittens ringworm-free.

The toothbrush lands on the kittens face and toes are wiggles; the kitten calms down in his hands.

So besides being a goldsmith, I guess I’m what a metaphysical person would label as a “medical empath”…which means I’m empathic and use that awareness to help heal others who want to be healed.

To those who haven’t read about my or other people’s writing on the hara, the hara is a location in the lower abdomen that is considered to be a “control button” for thought and therefore a gateway to longer lasting calm/enlightentment.

I’ve tested the toe-wiggling/hara connection, with many a person including my Japanese ESL students. Since the Japanese language has a consistent consonant pronunciation and our English language doesn’t (e.g. the “p” in “party” vs “phone”), they told me they felt nervous upon ordering Starbucks’ hot chocolate. The “o” in “hot chocolate” has two different pronunciations and the “a” sounds like an “i”. The baristas couldn’t understand them and they felt embarrassed not to mention, still in want for hot chocolate.

I asked the students to wiggle their toes as we discussed how the word “hot chocolate” has 4 real syllables and only 3 “truly pronounced” syllables. We broke down the syllables and recited them frontwards and backwards.

Being empathic, I felt their haras relax (I understand if this seems imperceivable, but the truth is Oneness, we aren’t our minds, we aren’t our bodies…I experienced this first-hand in my 2016 Near Death Experience)

Their pronunciations flowed.

…a palpable calm fell over our circle.

Love, Hbb

Universal Health Care Ideas

1) Bike and walking paths along all major roads…(can be subsidised by profitable automated kiosks/cashiers/vehicles…anything automated to replace human employment)…connecting towns and neighborhoods. Drinking fountains and bathroom facilities would be prudent additions for our future generations since our bodies are at least 65 percent water…



2) Tax incentives for companies to create organic plant-based multivitamins which are widely available and at no cost to the public. Moringa trees planted in public parks, moringa leaves available to all.



3) Tax incentives for companies to create organic/Roundup-free cotton-based feminine hygiene products which are widely available and at no cost to the nation’s future child-bearers.



4) Tax incentives for companies to create organic/Roundup-free cotton-based bathroom paper and paper towels (not to mention clothing, linens, etc).


5) Free bicycles and bicycle-repair education.



6) Copiers/printers with plant-based white ink and kraft/Roundup-free paper reams for offices, schools, and institutions.


7) Emissions ratings for all massed produced cleaners, detergents, cosmetics, and personal products (you can go to ewg.org). And emissions ratings for all consumable products.



Podcast Interview with This Helenbobelen

It’s a pleasure to share with you an auditory sampling of my so-called life. This was shortly before I returned to music and moved to Austin and became a professional musician and later songwriter. Thank you to “Your Creative Push” Podcast Interviewer/Artist Youngman Brown who was brave enough to attempt to help define my artistic career path through words in this 2017 conversation.:
