Thump Your Chest to Relax?

Discover Instant Tranquility with the Thymus Thump!

How do you feel when you look at this painting?

Would you like to feel like that within 30 seconds anytime you wish?  Well, you can!  Here’s how:

Find that little “V” in your neck, at the base of your throat, and tap just below it, directly on your skin, with four fingers of either hand.  Tap vigorously 33 times while you recall (or look at) the painting above (or any other image you love).

Result?  Instant tranquility!  Just that fast, a small gland, called the Thymus gland, releases a chemical that causes your body, mind, and spirit to create at least 10 relaxation responses, some of which you will actually feel!

Muscle tension, pain levels, blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, and feelings of stress and anxiety will all lower while feelings of peace and tranquility will increase.  Even your immunity will be strengthened!

Stuck in a meeting where you can’t thump your chest?  Put the tip of your tongue on that little web of skin behind your two front teeth where you burn your mouth with hot pizza sometimes.  You’ll get the same result!

It’s all very scientific and proven, too!  Dr. Diamond wrote a wonderful little book back in the 1970’s called “Your Body Doesn’t Lie”.  It’s all about the miraculous Thymus gland.  It’s a fascinating read.  Be sure to get it if you can find it.  Last time I checked, Amazon still had a few copies.

I’ve been doing the Thymus Thump intuitively since I was three, and it always works!  Make it part of your relaxation protocol!  You’ll be glad you did!

Discovery Art: Give Your Right Brain a Field Trip!

November 16, 2011

Your left brain is probably over worked, and your right brain is probably longing for exercise! Have a look at Gaia, and see what you can see!  Click twice on the image to enlarge it.


All my paintings have numerous hidden images in them – images that showed up as the paint dried, images that I did NOT deliberately paint in! Finding them is endless fun for people of all ages!  My work is in 20 countries and 19 United States as of 2015 helping uplift people of all circumstances and conditions.  Alzheimers patients are particularly responsive to my art!  If you would like to receive a complimentary packet of glossy, full color, large post cards, please contact me at achieve11@mac,com to make your request.  If you work with groups, I can send you more than one packet.  These are extraordinarily well received in memory-care facilities, for instance.

I invite you to http://www.DiscoveryArt.Info for more delightful paintings and comments by viewers of what they have found in each one.

Have fun!

Relieve the Pain at the Pump AND the Pain in Your Head!

April 22, 2011

VASTU FOR YOU:  Relieve the pain at the pump AND the pain in your head!

Two years ago, my husband and I placed a small, specially designed pyramid on the dashboard of our luxury car and increased our gas mileage 20%-25%, city driving, ever since.

How does this car pyramid work? It’s based on the art and science of Vastu. Vastu is similar to fung shui, but it also incorporates pyramid science, Reiki, numerology, geomancy, crstsals, and magnets.  Developed by a world-renowned bio-physicist, Vastu pyramid products are indeed the merging of science and spirituality, spanning centuries of ancient wisdom and the sophistication of 21st-century technology.  

Vastu car pyramids create a favorable energetic in your car that makes it run better!  They cost $48, work forever, no batteries or moving parts, and self mount onto your dashboard.  They are powered by their own energetics and your intention. 

Besides the increase in our gas mileage of 20-25% in the two years we have tested ours, two friends have experienced significant increases as well (7% for a rickety old car, and 15% for a car in fairly good shape!).  Even at 7% if you have a rickety car, 7% of your annual gas expenditure is still a tidy sum of money!  Plus, your car works better overall!

There are Vastu products to enhance your personal life, home, land holdings, pain, love relationships, prosperity, safety and security, and a hundred other things – even relief from migraine headaches!  There is a headache band that I have discovered also works for pain in the knees, elbows, arms, even the jaw.  It costs $14 and works forever!

The smartest moguls know about Vastu.  They incorporate these pyramid products into the foundations of their mansions, hotels, shopping centers, and casinos because they know the energetics of Vastu creates prosperity, safety, and well being.   Now YOU can do the same thing in your home, office and property.

There are 2 1/2 MILLION Vastu practitioners in India alone, and Vastu is rapidly gaining in popularity here in the United States as well.

Check it all out at  If you do not want to register as a visitor, just click on the word “pyramids” on the left link bar and explore a whole new world of life-changing products!  These products PERFORM!

I am so delighted to be a certified Vastu Consultant as well as a dealer for these pyramid products.  If I can help you Vastu your home, office, or property, or if I can help you choose products for your personal enhancement, please email me with your name and phone number, and I will call you:

Thank you for visiting my blog!  I welcome your stories about how you like your Vastu products.

You Can Make a Difference!

People are helping people (and animals) like never before.

A social worker has started a support group for people seeking employment in a tight job market. They meet regularly in a church meeting room to share ideas and encouragement.

A community worker recently helped a 60-year-old mentally challenged man to get settled in a room-and-board situation after his mother died and he was suddenly alone in the world.

I am personally offering you a complimentary 30-minute telephone consultation ($75 value) for sharing your story with others on this blog. Just make a blog entry describing what you did to help someone else, and then email me at to make arrangements for your complimentary consultation.   My website will give you an idea of the expertise and services I offer.
