Civilizing Children to Civilize the World!

During times of staying with my son and family, and from the safe perspective of being a grandparent, I have watched my grandchildren from infancy to their current ages of 10, 7 and 5. I have witnessed how these children and their playmates learn to get what they want and how they deal with frustration and anger when they don’t. I have observed the efforts of my son and his wife as well as other parents of young children in curbing the aggressive, greedy, self-serving tendencies of their offspring. I have seen a progression of the parents struggling with telling their children: “no”, “don’t touch”, “don’t hit your brother/sister”, “you have to share”, “wait your turn”, “put your toys away”, “clean up your own mess”, “you’re in ‘time-out until you learn ___“, etc.  And I have reflected that all of this has interesting parallels to adult life and the world of politics.

A child’s first instinct is to grab for whatever they want whether it is good for them or not, whether it belongs to someone else, whether in grabbing it, it will be destroyed for everyone including themselves, or whether in doing it/taking it, it will be dangerous both for themselves and others. If they want it, they want it and go after it without much thought to consequences.

If they don’t succeed in getting what they want, or if another child wants it too, there can be a fight, a grab and run, a temper tantrum, or a lot of crying. There can be a real hissy fit–“if I can’t have what I want, then I am going to destroy whatever is nearby.” Or here is one also prevalent amongst grownups in neighborhood subdivisions: “If I can’t have it/do it, I am going to make sure you can’t either.”

I watched one child spend a lot of time building a very elaborate lego structure when a younger sibling innocently or without any thought took away a piece of the tower his older brother just built, whereupon the first child was so upset that he destroyed his own creation. I have witnessed the children lie about their wrongdoing to avoid punishment, maintain parental approval, or avoid diminishment of their own ego. I have also witnessed them trying to shift blame for their misdeeds onto a sibling. I have watched one child repeatedly trying to play off one parent with another–the classic divide and conquer strategy that is being used in identity politics today on both national and global levels. “If I can get those people to fight, they will be so busy that I’ll avoid punishment and get what I want.”

On the other hand, I have also noticed random acts of kindness, compassion, loving acts. I have seen one sibling sticking up for another, and fighting against perceived injustice.

But in the face of such aggressive and greedy natural proclivities, and surrounded by so much violence in movies, video games, and our culture, can parents really teach children to outgrow such tendencies to become adults that really think through the consequences of their actions, and to be able to avoid war and instead cooperate to solve the massive problems we face as a species?

The World Peace Game

Yesterday, I watched a documentary “World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements” on what one Charlottesville, Virginia teacher, Mr. John Hunter, is doing to teach children to think through dealing with the tough challenges of life. He does this through a game he designed 40 years ago called World Peace. Instead of attempting to protect children from the harsh realities of life (as if you really could), this game teaches children the importance of thinking through the consequences of their actions rather than just screaming in protest, rushing to attack, or retreating in fear. While teaching the importance of protecting and looking out for the common good of their ‘country’ and preserving their own resources, this five-day game also teaches negotiating skills, forming alliances to come together to solve common problems, the real cost of war and the value of finding other less costly and bloody solutions. 

In the film this award-winning educator and his 4th Grade students at Venable School in Charlottesville participate in an educational exercise he developed called “The World Peace Game,” now offered in 33 countries around the world. The film follows these nine- and ten-year-old students as they assume roles as world leaders responding to an ongoing series of real world military, economic, and environmental crises.

I recommend watching Hunter’s TED talk here:

Other interviews and articles including how children can go through the game or how teachers can take the training to offer it themselves are on his website at

I AM…so happy and grateful…

“In the beginning was the word.” Genesis

Hypnotists understand the power that words have to powerfully impact upon your life. The most important words being “I am” followed by anything else. “I AM” has incredible creative power.

Hypnosis teaches that the subconscious mind, which controls all habits and automatic behaviors, is constantly listening to everything that you say. Through repetition, words program the subconscious, and that subconscious programming leads you to be inclined to do or not do, to notice or not, to just happen to be in the right time and place for whatever you have programmed into your inner mind to occur for better or worse.

Yet how often instead of deliberately helping yourself, you identify with the negative by saying anyway “I am ___ (sick, broke, tired, burnt out, overwhelmed)” etc. And even though I know better, I catch myself doing it too.

I have found a helpful antidote through the phrase 

“I AM so happy and grateful that ___.”


The moment I say that I am happy and grateful I notice that it truly starts to shift my mood. Then I follow with more statements, quickly listing a bunch of things that do, in fact, make me happy, or for which I am genuinely grateful. I start with statements that I honestly believe. In starting with the easy things, it sets up the right frame of mind for me then to shift gears on those areas that need help or in which I need to manifest a positive outcome. It is important, however, to state these other things in a way in which you can believe them. Saying something you think is impossible will only backfire. 

First, I start with anything is easily true for me:

“I AM so happy and grateful that it’s a beautiful day. 

“I AM so happy and grateful that the sun is shining.

“I AM so happy and grateful that the flowers are starting to bloom.

“I AM so happy and grateful to live in this beautiful place.

Then I make statements to shift my attitude in a positive way on a challenge I need to resolve:

“I AM so happy and grateful that I have reliable, capable help to ____ at a price I can easily afford.

“I AM so happy and grateful that I quickly attract the very best tenants into my property at ____ Street. 

Finally, I visualize it as done and soak up the good feelings of that happy completion.

Personal Story

Years ago I was sponsored to teach throughout India. On a day off I went to a botanical park. The cab driver dropped me off at the entrance and said that I should walk straight through the park and he would meet me at the exit. Fine.

So I walked through this delightful but huge gated park. When I had enough, I went out the exit upon which the gate locked behind me. However, there was no cab driver. So I had to walk all around the outside of the park back to the entrance and try again.

This time I saw a fork in the path, and took it. Sure enough, there was another exit, and out I went. Again the gate locked behind me, and, you guessed it – no cab driver. So for the second time I walked around the fence back to the entrance, again looking for yet another exit. Found it, and hooray – lots of cabs. Unfortunately, not mine. The cabbies said that my driver got tired of waiting and left. So, once more I walked around the perimeter back to the entrance whereupon they kind attendant who luckily spoke English called my hotel and sponsor.

While I was angry, tired, hot and thirsty, depressed, and just fed up, I gritted my teeth and focused on anything for which I could be grateful. “I’m glad I have feet. I’m grateful I can walk. I am glad to be here in India instead of Newark, New Jersey right now.”

Locating & Clearing the Mental/Emotional Drivers of Disease

All day workshop: Wednesday, June 13, New Paltz, NY

Mental and emotional stress plays a part of every health challenge. Some stress such as the death of a loved one is so devastating that there is a clear connection. But usually, it is a slow, steady, cumulative effect of unresolved issues that wear away the body’s resources so that it can no longer muster the strength to protect itself. Some issues or vulnerabilities are inherited, some perhaps are carried over from past lives. A great deal is unconscious. Dowsing excels in locating & clearing the stuck energies, the negative beliefs or judgements, the unhealed trauma (both yours and that of your ancestors). We will look at the shocks and internal conflicts that trigger many specific health conditions, the metaphysical meanings of disease, secondary gain, and multiple other ways to dowse out and resolve the major stressors that once complete free up energy for the body to move back to health.


Hypnosis to Enhance Your Dowsing

Seminar, Santa Cruz

Enlarge your belief in yourself and your ability to learn and improve upon your dowsing skills.


Therapeutic Dowsing & Telepathic Healing: Dowsing for Mental & Emotional Issues

All day workshop, Santa Cruz, Tuesday, July 3

Dowsing is phenomenally fast at locating and then resolving the root and related causes of mental and emotional issues. In this workshop, we will work with a large number of charts and checklists to identify and release stuck energies, extract the positive learning from experiences, and enhance positive energy. This frees up energy that can be applied elsewhere—physical healing, personal goal achievement, and living your life with greater enthusiasm, joy and vitality. We will investigate: every year of your life including the future, key relationships, typical life events, beliefs, judgments, prejudices, addictive thinking, fears and other emotions, repeating negative patterns and habits. While covering all this may seem a formidable task, Roxanne will show you a shortcut to cut to the chase of the matter. Not only will you learn how to do all of the above for yourself, but to telepathically do so with others that have requested your assistance.

Senior Center, 1180 Pepsi Place, Charlottesville, VA 22901. Note that street name has changed to 491 Hillsdale Drive (same building).


Types, Causes, Signs and Symptoms of Stress, Effects on Adults, Children, General Health, Finances, Family Relationships.

Gary will demonstrate a Hartmann Grid line and invite those who wish to dowse with him.  He will also demo how these lines can be blocked or shunted over a house/business/field.

Gary Duden’s Outline of Presentation 

NEGATIVE ENERGIES; Types, Causes, Signs and Symptoms of Stress, Effects on Adults, Children, General Health, Finances, Family Relationships.

TYPES:  Geopathic Lines of Stress, naturally occurring in the earth, any direction.  Interpersonal Lines of Interference, manmade, any direction.  Hartmann Grid, west to east and south to north, man made from the worldwide AC electrical system.

CAUSES: Geopathic Lines of Stress can be caused by underground water courses, streams, wells, pools, caverns or mineral deposits.  Interpersonal Lines of interference are caused by our families, friends, neighbors or enemies by their thoughts/fears/concerns about us.  Site examples of my property/neighbors/etc.  The Hartmann Grid is caused by the worldwide electrical grid including transformers on one’s property, ground or pole mounted.  Imagine ribbons of energy running west to east and south to north, on end, extending several thousand feet into the air.  These grid lines are usually eight to twelve inches wide but can be as wide as twenty-four inches during a full moon and the grid lines from six to eight feet apart.   

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS: These forms of negative energy can cause cancer, affect one’s health, finances and family unity.  Site examples of my family and wife’s old neighborhood in Troy, MI.  Three neighboring houses in a row all experienced various types of cancer including cancer of the throat and brain tumors in three.   Hartmann Grid, cite examples of my property, cracks in driveway, drywalls, foundations, wasps and hornets, ant mounds, mould or lichen on ground/house, all attracted by negative energy produced by the Hartmann Grid and Geopathic Lines of Stress.  Once cleared, the driveway and interior walls stopped cracking, the relationship of my wife and daughter improved greatly as did finances.  The very atmosphere of the house improved to a warm, comfortable wonderful feeling.  Others who visited also felt a marked difference in the house.  

If you feel better once you leave your home or if neighbors are always ill.  If you awaken feeling tired, cold, down and depressed or despondent.  Signs of such stress in children can manifest as restlessness and nightmares, sleepwalking, not wanting to go to bed, behavioral and learning problems in school, slow in learning, lazy, forgetful, moody, bed wetting, hostile or aggressive or antisocial.

EFFECTS: Serious health issues including cancer, multiple sclerosis, headaches, sleeplessness, strife/irritability in family unit, financial difficulties, and the very atmosphere in one’s house can be affected.   

These lines/zones can be blocked or shunted over one’s home and property, site my house as an example. 

Google or Bing these subjects or study them in the library then decide for themselves if you should be concerned.

Additionally, look up Slim Spurling by going to: to read about the man and his inventions including his Light-Life tools.  His book, Slim Spurling’s Universe and be purchased and downloaded on line.

Several years ago I attended a weekend long seminar in Greene County given by Slim.  I got to know him and work with him and his Light-Life tools.  He and I staked out a house size area in the yard of the Bed and Breakfast where the seminar was held.  We then dowsed around the house sized area together marking the paths of the Hartmann Grid and Geopathic Lines of Stress.  We ran different colored ribbons to mark these lines for the class.  We then took the class out to the yard to have them dowse for these lines, teaching those who had never dowsed to do so.  We then blocked the Geopathic Lines of Stress and had the class re-dowse the area so that they could see the lines no longer intersected the house.  A three cubit ring of Slim’s design was then placed on the ground beneath a Transformer on a power pole near the house and had the class re-dowse for the Hartmann Grid line to prove to them that they were now gone.


Gary and Lisa Duden, a father-daughter team offering Psychic guidance and counseling, Mediumship, Reiki and Dowsing to clear Negative Energies including Geopathic Stress to protect one’s self, family, home or farm, business and property.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”.   A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you.  Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.   Lisa is a Reiki level one practitioner and Gary is a level three or Master offering hands-on and distance healing, the release of entities (souls) trapped here on the earth plane to clear houses and property.  They have both saved souls trapped on the earth plane by guiding them into the Light.
Psychic /Mediumship
Both Lisa and Gary have been experiencing psychic occurrences and mediumship since their childhood.  Various forms of psychic ability can be Clairvoyance, Clairaudience or Clairsentience.  Clairvoyance means clear- seeing.  This may be experienced both subjectively which is processed from or taking in a person’s spiritual mind and thoughts, and objectively which means having actual existence, form and reality.  Clairaudience is clear-hearing.  Such thoughts of “where did I put my car keys?” or “I’m going to be late, I had better leave now” is clairaudience on the subjective level.  The experience is similar except that the thoughts that come into our minds are from those who have crossed over or on the “other side”.  On the objective level, clairaudience is where those who have crossed can be heard talking aloud as if they were standing next to us.  Clairsentience is clear-sensing such as entering a room where an argument between others has just taken place and you actually feel the atmosphere that is so thick it seems as if you can cut it with a knife.  This is an experience which many have felt, sensing energy subjectively.  
We dowse to protect families, homes, businesses and farms from what we call the big three; The Hartmann Grid, Geopathic Lines of Stress and Interpersonal Lines of Interference.  When we dowse another’s property we offer to teach them how to do it for themselves if they wish to learn.  These forms of negative energy affect one’s health, finances, even family cohesion.  Poor grades in school, lack of attention, sleeplessness and lack of enthusiasm are often found in children living in affected areas.  Ants, wasps and Hornets are attracted to areas of negative energy.  Asphalt driveways, the walls and ceilings of rooms and board fences will crack or warp due to these forms of negative energy such as the Hartmann Grid and Geopathic Lines of Stress.  Both Gary and Lisa work with Earth energies when dowsing.  They have both studied and preformed rituals according to beliefs found in Druidism, Celtic Magic, Wicca and Native American Shamanism.  Though they do not identify with any one of these belief systems, they use a mixture of all of these in their psychic, mediumship and dowsing work as well.
They use many of Slim Spuring’s Life Light Tools around the home and in vehicles and, though they do not work for the company he founded nor sell these products, they endorse them whole heartedly.
They are very familiar with Edgar Cayce and The Association for Research and Enlightenment (ARE) he founded in Virginia Beach.  They use many of his methods daily for mental, physical and emotional health.

3. Background Articles/Videos for 2/13 Dowsers Support Teleconference

One of the panelists for the ASD Teleconference in January and again in February is Greg Storozuk, who has been published in a number of articles that beginning dowsers might find useful. Greg mainly works dowsing water or oil wells, but also skilled in other aspects of dowsing as well. 
On the January call, Greg mentioned that he felt that dowsing involved Spirituality, Simplicity and Natural Law. I asked him to briefly explain what he meant, which he will do on Tuesday. But here is an article where he also mentions it: 

First—Spirituality: A higher form of Consciousness, Intelligence and Energy that exists beyond our current understanding.

Second—Simplicity: Following simple laws of logic using the above concepts.

Third—Natural Law: The use of the basic simplistic governing tools applied to each creation from its inception.”

Next, here is a series of articles entitled

The Beginner Dowser Series: Learn to Dowse

(taken from

“Read Greg Storozuk’s installment series for the beginning dowser. For best dowsing success, read the columns in order, starting with number 1.

Using Humor to Defuse Anger!

Unless you’re a psychopath, you are not going to kill somebody while you are laughing. And when you are done laughing, the original anger that made you want to kill, will have almost certainly lessened or be gone. Humor lessens tension so that better communication or constructive action can take place. So use humor to defuse!

Years ago when my son was a teenager and giving me a lot of ‘lip’, we had lots of arguments. I was completely frustrated, and constantly upset by his defiance. On this particular occasion, we (my husband, son and myself) were at the dinner table when my son started in. I was just about to serve the mashed potatoes. The big spoon with a heaping amount of vegetable was in my hand ready to dish out. Something in me clicked, and I pulled back on the spoon and catapulted it’s contents into my son’t face. My son responded by dipping his bare hand into the mashed potatoes and dumping them on top of my head. With that, my husband leapt up yelling “food fight!” And the fight was ON! All three of us threw mashed potatoes, pillows, anything non-breakable and non dangerous at one another, running all over the house.


It turned out to be the best thing we did because it totally cleared the air of tension between my son and I that had been building since I remarried. While we had to redecorate the hallway afterwards, that was no loss as the wallpaper was 50 years old and needed to go. My coat, which someone had used as a shield, also suffered, and had to go to the dry cleaner. But otherwise, everything else was fine.

At a later time, when my marriage was ending, I was extremely depressed (depression is the flip side of anger).  At the office and unable to concentrate on doing any work, I wandered next door to a neighbor’s office. Finding him alone, I asked him to tell me a joke because I badly needed to laugh. He remembered one, we both laughed, and I proceeded to someone else’s office. “I have a joke for you,” I said. I repeated the joke, laughed again, and asked him to tell me one. With this, I continued down the hall, repeating each of the jokes I learned and asking for more. Each time I told or heard one, I laughed and they laughed. This went on for weeks. The entire floor became engaged in joke telling and it boosted the spirits for us all.

Humor can be a healthy way of coping with strong emotions such as anger, depression, frustration and emotional pain. It allows you to keep your sanity so you can survive whatever is going on. The laughter brings oxygen to your brain so that you can think more clearly. As tension is released, it allows you to become more rational and make better decisions and to take constructive action.

At an earlier time and another divorce, my son (then in grade school) and I both had a lot of anger at his step-father, who had not only been emotionally abusive to us both, but had been physically rough with my son. My son truly hated this man and was prepared to hurt him if he came back into the house. So I had him play mental games with me of what practical jokes we could play on this man – things that would be an affront to his dignity, but not physically hurt him in any way.

For example, we would imagine giant birds or animals flying overhead and pooping on him, or sending dog too-doo to him in the mail, etc. We would imagine him as animal/bird/critter, and come up with insulting but funny names to call him. These mental games helped him, and are similar to a Neural Linguistic Programming technique called ‘Carnival’. I have written several visualizations to turn anger into humor in Chapter 6 my self-hypnosis course book, Your Unlimited Potential (see link here).

When things are really tough, sometimes the only thing you can do is to laugh. And if you are able to laugh on a regular basis, you probably will not get so angry or as often. So look for the funny side of things!

0  I will be presenting a seminar on Using Humor to Defuse Anger in Your Practice at the upcoming National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists Conference occurring November 3-8 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. And I also will be giving a full-day workshop on Releasing Anger Without Killing Anyone on Wednesday, 11/8. See for information.

Help Yourself & Others Release Anger without Killing Anyone!

Have you ever thought of ANGER AS OPPORTUNITY? or TEACHER? or MOTIVATOR? or CHOICE?

Understanding the underlying dynamics of your upset helps you to harness anger so it actually accomplishes some good and, hopefully, does no harm to you or others.

Over a lifetime, I have had the ‘opportunity and motivation’ pushing me to learn something about unconscious forces, and mental and emotional healing.
“Necessity is the Mother of invention.” 
Some of what I have learned has been compiled in a 154 page content rich manual, Releasing Anger Without Killing Anyone, to assist you personally, and to assist you to help others. Whether you are a spouse, parent, employer, employee, mental health practitioner, I feel strongly that there is something in this book for you that can assist to make your conversations more productive, your relationships more harmonious, your life more effective, your sleep more restful and your health improved, all leading to overall greater inner resources and peace of mind. I know that this information works because I use it regularly to help myself, my friends, my clients and students.
While you can learn all of this information right out of the book and teach it to others, you  also have the opportunity of spending a full day with me in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Wednesday, November 8 at the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists 22nd Annual Conference. For information, see This would allow you to have all of your questions answered on how to apply it to various situations, do lots of practical exercises, and learn new skills and therapeutic interventions.

This is some of what the book covers and that will be dealt with in depth in the workshop.

  • Become aware of underlying beliefs, judgments, faulty assumptions or perceptions that cause anger!
  • Learn more effective communication skills to both avoid unnecessary problems and to address the ones you have!
  • Learn to maintain and regain balance and perspective quickly!

  • Learn to fight clean and stop conversations from spiraling downwards!
  • Learn more effective coping skills!
  • Take effective action without the baggage of the past!
  • Use anger to grow in maturity and cast off leftovers of childhood!
  • Allow anger to locate and address your own unhealed wounds!
  • Understand the underlying dynamics of anger!
  • Learn to deal with what is instead of wasting precious energy in resistance!
  • Notice negative patterns and screw them up!
  • Understand and dissolve triggers!
  • Nip anger in the bud by noticing and taking action at the first warning signs!
  • Understand physical reasons for anger so you can address them!
  • Use anger as motivation for much needed healing and change!
  • Make your adversaries help you!
  • Learn the benefits of anger
