String theory was the whole basis of What the Bleep, wasn't it? Or am I thinking of something else?

s to WuWei. It's wonderful that your grandma is letting you know everything's OK.

Oh, that's right, sorry!

If I remember correctly, you can heal your LIFE is what grew out of the previous smaller book you can heal your BODY. (I looked it up just now and found "Heal Your Body" but not "You can Heal Your Body." Is everyone confused yet? )

So would the smaller book contain info already in the bigger book?

One can never have too many Louise Hay products around, anyway.

I've been toying with this idea for a while and in the last several days it has started to create itself.

I'm driving in the car and I think of an exercise or I'm cleaning up the house and think of a reading I want to include. I've been jotting notes down on cards and I'm realizing that what I have is pretty good!!

I want DH to co-lead it with me...he's such a powerful grounding force for me and I just think he would add so much and make the men in the group feel really at ease.

Any other workshop-leading mamas here? I have a question about citing sources. It seems like everybody is borrowing everyone's work. Like the Hay House (Debbie Ford) thing on re-writing your story. I just learned basically that same technique from a Daily Groove from Scotte Noelle. I was thinking of citing him as the source for that exercise but now I'm wondering if that's *his* idea or did he learn that from Debbie Ford or from Abe-Hicks or from Wayne Dyer or....

It seems like there is SO much overlap in the teachings. I have heard Wayne Dyer saying something that I heard Caroline Myss say word-for-word without either of them mentioning the other.

Is the LoA community operating above copyrights and making claims to owning ideas???
I am jumping in totally late to the thread this week but I had to comment on this post. DH and I have been looking for LOA stuff related to parenting - especially how to teach DS (age 4.5) about LOA in an understandable way. This month we ordered a number of books from Scholastic through his daycare. One was Incredible You! 10 Ways to Be Happy Inside and Out by Wayne Dyer and Kristina Tracy. We really had no idea who Wayne Dyer was or what the book was about when we ordered it. Well we got it last night and it is totally an LOA book for young children! And I see on Amazon it is published by Hay House. I had no idea, I am just happy we found it. We haven't read it to DS yet, so I don't know how he will take to it, but I am very excited about the possibilities! I think a workshop about LOA as related to parenting is a great idea too.

ETA: I think the book title is actually Incredible You! 10 Ways to Let Your Greatness Shine Through but that is not what Amazon lists it as for some reason....

I used REACH today to find a lost item and dh casually mentioned that oh yeah, that thing I've been looking for for weeks...he remembers where it is.

Going for my interview in one hour. Slightly nervous...not sure why. The guy seems really nice.
I can do Folklife, I think. Any time in April other than 17-25 would work for me. How about the 15th or the 29th? Or the 14th?

Good luck with the interview. Who watches your kids, and what kind of work is it that you can do it while you post on MDC?

All this talk of weaning reminds me that I am still nursing ds at 4 years old, and I worry that he will be a freak for nursing so long. I'm not always thrilled to nurse him, but I know it helps keep my PCOS under control (keeps my weight down, my testosterone low, etc.), so I keep going, especially since he really seems to need it.
I would love to hear affirmations about helping with separations, though, because at this point ds won't stay with anyone but me, not even dh. Sigh.

1. Your ds is not a freak, he is smart. Dr. Jack Newman says nursing for years is a good idea, because the immune system is immature until about 5. Dr. William Sears says it's great when a 5 yr old is nursing because above all these are connected kids, and the world needs more connected kids.

2. there is a great, long thread with moms who've BTDT, I think it's by Mother Sunshine at one of the breastfeeding forums.

PM me if you want more bf support I can hook you up!

Hmmmm affirmations, how are these?

Ds and I are so lucky to still be nursing since it is so good for both of us.

I am so happy and grateful that Ds and I are calm and peaceful whether we are together or apart.

I am so grateful and happy and now that ds has grown into the ability to understand when I need a break from nursing sometimes.

I got that book for DS when it first came out and he really enjoyed it - he was 6 at the time. (That's weird that Amazon has the title listed wrong - it even shows the 'correct' title in the picture.) I'd been listening to Wayne Dyer for 15+ years, so I was very happy when he came out with a kids book.

He's got a new one for kids that I've been meaning to pick up, "Unstoppable Me!: 10 Ways to Soar Through Life":

My DS nursed until he was 4 (plus 2 - 3 months). Oddly, I don't think he even remembers. But he remembers lots of stuff from before he was 4.

I totally empathize with you - I always had to be there, especially at night, because he couldn't sleep without nursing - aaaallllll night long. (I really could have used the support of the people on this thread back then! I didn't know anybody who nursed as long as I did IRL.)

I just noticed a couple weeks ago I was going to my mom's alone, and as I was leaving I was like "OK, I'm leaving now" as DS (now 7) completely ignored me. I mean, it's nice to not have him throw a fit, but a hug and kiss goodbye would be nice. (He usually does, but was preoccupied with something else at the time.)

Thanks for all of the "feel better" wishes, everyone. I am feeling much, much better today.

I stayed up all night talking to a friend and fell asleep around 7 am. You'd think I'd feel awful, today, but nope...I'm buzzing pretty hard

I'm still in that...fragile state where my vibration lowers easily, but I'm doing a good job of staying cheerful and happy.

Did you read my post in the old, old thread to you about getting a babysitter??

What about some affirmations to find a really wonderful, caring person to take care of him when you're not around?

My friend Julie (of Lactation Nation) posted this in her blog today and I just love it...

"...And therefore I look upon everything
as a brotherhood and a sisterhood,
and I look upon time as no more than an idea,
and I consider eternity as another possibility,

and I think of each life as a flower, as common
as a field daisy, and as singular,

and each name a comfortable music in the mouth,
tending, as all music does, toward silence,

and each body a lion of courage, and something
precious to the earth.

When it's over, I want to say all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it's over, I don't want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.

I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.

I don't want to end up simply having visited this world."

~Mary Oliver

My dd will be 4 this month and is still nursing. He will not be a freak for nursing so long, mama. My dd is also very attached to me and sometimes that is exhausting.

Sometimes I wish she would wean....tho she told me that she is still going to nurse even when she's as big as her older sister.:

oh yeah, that's it! i'm not sure if the same info is in "you can heal your life". i looked at "heal your body" quickly at my friend's place, and it is all affirmations for physical healing. it is in alphabetical order, and has affirmations and vibrational causes for everything from allergies, to hemmrhoids, to infections. it's a great little reference book.

Wow! I LOVE Amy Lansky's book. My homeopath & I were talking about her today - she's met her many times.

If you don't mind my asking, is your dd metal toxic?
