How to Find BALANCE and HEALTH in Modern Times
We have advanced and learned so much! Any information is at our fingertips. Everywhere we look there’s a delightful blend of the old ways teaming up with new technological advances. Sometimes though, do you feel a little overwhelmed? Authoritative but conflicting views abound – what to believe?
This informational blog is to help sift through any confusion or pressure you may feel because when it comes right down to it, stress and doubt are our enemies.
The easiest way to “heal” is not to try to eliminate a bad habit, or a bad thought, or a bad circumstance, but rather to replace it with something you’d prefer to feel, know, or do. Focusing on something different or new, consistently incorporating little changes will literally change our destiny. (See easy to use tool “Screen of the Mind” at end)
Of course, moderation is a key we can too often forget.
Starting where you are
Where to begin
Way back in the 70s, T.D. Willhite (founder of PSI World) said that balance is the key to synergistic living. The latter defined as peace of mind, well-being, and happiness. “It is achieved when the four natures of mankind – health, wealth, love, and perfect self-expression – are in balance… The Book of Revelations speaks of these natures when referring to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The pale horse is the physical or health side; the black horse represents the intellectual or wealth side; the red horse connotes emotions or the perfect self expression side; and the white horse is the love or spiritual side.”
He suggested rating ourselves on each and drawing a square, or as close to a square as we can, to help visualize where we may need to focus our attention.
When I first did this exercise, it was so woppy jawed, where I had to focus became abundantly clear.
Relating it to four horses pulling a carriage, if they’re not the same, we go in circles – or crash :(
Let’s look then at each of our four natures, with our modern challenges, and what we may be able to incorporate - blending the old ways with new advances.
Essentially we have to first love ourselves. We’re often too harsh and demanding on ourselves. We expect perfection. I learned to think of perfection as “the process of awareness”. It made it easier for me because all I had to do was be willing to risk vulnerability so no-matter what happened in life, it was all good if I learned from it.
It became easier to stop making the same mistakes, stop beating myself up, stop being angry and hurting others. Once I fully incorporated this into my being, I began to feel more love for others too because I knew they had their own lessons and struggles. That, of course, made it easier to stop judging and especially to stop taking things personally.
I began to feel more gratitude for everything (Gratitude Log 21 days to more abundance), in each moment – and slowly but surely, every moment became more joyous and loving. With that, I knew… I am worthy.
My first mentor cut out an article for me to read (hint, hint :0).
It was by Gail Garnett, printed in the Toronto Star on June 14, 1974.
I still carry it with me because it took me many years to fully incorporate, but I'm here to tell you, the journey has been awesome and finally finding that balance is well worth it!
I share it here with you...
Decades ago, when we started hearing “new findings” about what caused cancer, many stopped paying attention because it seemed no-matter what we did, it became a factor in our inevitable destruction and death. Yes, the truth is, we’re all going to die. I believe though, this is no time to stop paying attention.
It’s not nearly as complicated as it may seem.
As human beings, our bodies thrive on 3 things: 1) air; 2) water; 3) food.
Whatever it takes to improve these areas, is what we ought to at least take baby steps to improve.
Less than $80!
If you live in the middle of a city with polluted air, find ways to get fresher air:
- an air filter in your home;
- head to the country once-in-awhile;
- or stop jogging while deep breathing auto exhaust… :0
Less than $150 > cheaper than disease!

We all know we ought to be drinking at least half our weight in water – EVERY DAY. Bottled water is a scam – there are no regulations and the plastic bottles are killing our environment. Simple – get a water filter. And yes, I’ve looked into our PH balance and am a firm believer in getting a filter that will bring our PH back to where it needs to be: 7.36.
The last hub I wrote shows how to get an alkaline, micro-clustered, anti-oxidant water filter VERY inexpensively.
Is it important? Only if we want to be healthy and live long. (They studied people who had died of cancer and autopsies showed they all had a ph level of 5 or below.)
Btw, it takes 28 glasses of that kind of “medicinal” water to offset 1 (ONE) glass of soda. Don’t believe me? I challenge you to research – there is so much scientific proof! I felt almost silly when I found out because it seems to me, the media ought to make things like this headliners. Well, maybe they did back in 1924 :(
Raw food ROCS! 50 fruits, veggies+ :)
Probiotics are not just for vegetarians
- Probiotic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
...active live cultures; such as in yogurt, soy yogurt, or as dietary supplements.
All about food could, and does, fill libraries. simplified: Organic is best, raw is the healthiest and any variance from those causes more acidity in our bodies causing disease and deprives us of the vital nutrients we need – especially if it’s bleached out flour or sugar.
All cooking depletes our food of vitamins and nutrients. And every moment a food is taken from its living source, vitamins and minerals dissipate.
Again, baby steps. When we break lettuce off for a salad for example, if we immediately coat the leaves in olive oil, the nutrients are preserved.
If you find it difficult to eat 5 fruits and veggies’ a day, make it easier with a raw food drink – your body will thank you a million times over.

Do you think of money when you think of wealth?
Or do you think of knowledge?
Personally, to me, it all boils down to energy > how we spend it, how we use it, what we focus on…
These days we seem to be struggling to find security. We want a job yet at the same time, want to do what we want, when we want.
Perhaps this too depends on how much we trust ourselves to create the world we want.
“Man is paid in direct proportion to the service he renders mankind.” T. D. Willhite “People have everything you will ever want, and they will gladly give it to you, provided you help them get what they want. Find a need and fill it. Be of service.”
“Our most valuable possessions are those which can be shared without lessening: those which, when shared, multiply. Our least valuable possessions are those which, when divided, are diminished.” William H. Danforth

If you find your energy imbalanced or diminished, you could indeed be affected by all the scattered energy that bombards our airwaves.
Sitting in front of the computer subjects us to EMS – as does carrying our cell phone L By all means protect yourself! Check out some of the new tools for balancing our energy fields (Scalar Energy Pendants)
