Mine is the path of the Sayer

Mine is the path of the Sayer. The way shower. My mom called me Sar growing up (pronounced Say-er), which only really occurred to me in recent years. I am a speaker of truth. Not for personal gain, but because I cannot seem to do otherwise. I am compelled.

I, after much soul searching, truly believe I have hopped in on the very front seat of the roller coaster we call this earth ride because I am a spiritual adrenalin junkie. I have the soul level urge to do everything first and leap into the unknown relatively fearlessly.

This has not been an easy or painless choice for this incarnation. My life has been filled with ups and downs of epic proportion. People have always looked to me for advice, even from a very very young age, with them being older even most of the time. I am an old soul. I do not know everything and sometimes doubt myself. But I seem to have an innate knowing because I trust my inner guidance and always have. I thankfully didn’t have to learn that, at least not in this life.

I believe that unconditional love and forgiveness can heal anything and do a pretty good job of living it in my own existence. Not at all to say I don’t get mad, clearly I do. I am human. I am a soul having a human experience. All of us came here for that -To experience contrast. Love and hate, happiness and sadness, dark and light.

I believe we are all here to teach each other lessons, some harder than others. All agreed to by both parties pre-birth to this incarnation. I look around in this earth realm and see so many false prophets. Some who start out well intentioned and get wrapped up in ego losing themselves, yet people still follow blindly not being able to trust their true guides……themselves.

If someone has to tell you that they are a Master. They are likely not. I am not claiming to be a master of anything. I am a work in progress. I always will be. I am perfect in my imperfections. As are you. Just felt the need to express all of that. Thank you for being here with me. You are appreciated.

Missing the quaintness, but not the cold!

I love AZ…….. The weather is lovely… I do not miss the freezing north….but I will say this……… I do miss the unique quaintness of Vermont. 

Of course many of the things I miss are no longer there….I can remember weekends with my mom just driving about, wandering and exploring, seeing what we could find…. one of my favorite places was TheCandle Mill in East Arlington, VT. An old wooden huge 2 story building that had the feel of a renovated barn with all kinds of nook and cranny rooms to explore. As soon as you opened the door the intoxicating scents of a multitude of candles would hit you like a wall of “Ahhhh”. It was right on a river and had several small alcoves you could sit in over top of the water and just enjoy it.

They had every kind of wonderful candle you could think of and you could even dip (color) your own in big vats of colorful wax. Huge candles bigger than me, and candles that looked like ribbon candy that were carved. Interesting boxes, bags and a whole floor of music boxes including one I was totally enamored with that hung on the wall there for years. It was a mirrored box, 2ft wide by 1ft high. Had it been in a home rather than on display it could have been mounted in a wall to look like an ornate flat normal mirror. The switch on the side though, when flipped on, was amazing. The mirroring faded away and revealed a ballroom with several figures inside dancing.

This was back in the day when kids were well behaved enough at shops like this still allowed you to explore and touch things without signs everywhere yelling at you before you even did anything.

This was an amazing little “plaza”, and I use that word loosely. It was a series of connected buildings, all that had their own interest. Right next door was the Rosebud Toy Company and RAH Earth. Rosebud was filled with stuffed animals and toys that required imagination to play with  – cool interesting and out of the box.It was an amazing place for gifts. RAH Earth was owned by a lovely woman named Roseanne who made beautiful custom pottery including music boxes, one of whichI still have. It is little clay me and my dog pumpkin sitting on a park bench.

Next door to them was a cheese shop that had cheeses from all over the world and samples galore. At the end was a hat shop where you could play dress up and see how you looked in just about every kind of hat there was.

In the neighboring town of Manchester was the world famous Jelly Mill. This monstrous converted barn was enormous and had heavy welded artistic metal doors. This is the single most unique “shop” I have yet to find. It was an indoor mall of sorts, in that it housed 20 or so individual shops. The building was old and creaked when you walked. It added character, and also made you wonder if one day someone wouldn’t just simply disappear, falling through the floor while shopping.

Jelly Mill early 80’s

There were gift cards, amazing unique jewelry collected from all over the world, crystals, plants, hand made figurines, a huge collection of fancy soaps that smelled wonderful, candies, pastries, candles, trinkets,boxes, cookware, toys, and a fantastic little café restaurant called TheButtery. I loved having lunch there, as a kid I guess that was my version of a tea party and it made me feel import and “fancy” as I only got to go there on special occasions. You could stay in there for hours and still not see everything. I do distinctly recall liking to go there with my dad better because he would buy me jellybeans.

The more you wandered around Vermont, the more eclectic tiny mom and pop shops you could find. We never knew what we might come home with and it was always an adventure.

Especially in retrospect, Vermont was a lovely place to grow up.

Wishing all my VT friends warm thoughts on this cold day!

Outgrowing Friendships

In life, there come periods where change is inevitable.

Nothing can stay the same forever. That includes our circle of friends. Friendships are based on commonalities, not just whether you like each other or not. When those common interests begin to fall away, it means that growth is happening to one, the other, or hopefully both parties.

Growth is the natural order of things. As we age, we change. As we explore the world we find new exciting things that trip our fancy, we form opinions based on our experiences, we work on ourselves letting go of old baggage that doesn’t serve us any longer.

Friends will sometimes remark “you’ve changed” and mean it in a not so nice fashion. Take it as a compliment. It means you haven’t been remaining stagnant. Whether your friend approves or not is inconsequential.

Friends are wonderful things. It is important to have people in your world who genuinely care about you and your wellbeing and vice versa. All friendships aren’t meant to last a lifetime though. It may feel strange or uncomfortable to feel like you should walk away and leave someone in your past, but it is a natural occurrence in life and will happen time and time again. It doesn’t mean you no longer care about them or that they didn’t play a major role in your life for a time.

What it means is that we all are destined to walk our own path and not everyone is meant to follow along. They have their own trail to go down too. If you feel like you have outgrown your friend or group of friends, it’s likely you have. Wish them well and continue on your way.

Clearing room in your social circle opens up space energetically for new better-suited matches to arrive in your life.

Be excited to see who is next.

#1 On Google Instantly!

Sorry, I call Bullshit. No one can make you number 1 on Google overnight.

I do SEO for a living as well as Marketing, Blogging, and Graphic Design. Many of you get spam mail daily promising the world. The fact is no one can get you to #1 on Google overnight. If they try to it is through paid ads that will automatically drop your ranks as soon as you let the ad go. Organic traffic takes time and consistency as well as great content. The beauty is that those results – stay.

Don’t fall for slick emails that are most likely spam. Blackhat SEO may get you there fast, but it will also get your site dinged and eventually blackballed.

The Ideal Christmas Gift – Christ Revealed!

Did you miss the series? It would make the ideal Christmas gift this year!

The “revealed” series has been great so far. This one should be very interesting too. I have gotten a lot of messages saying “I thought you weren’t religious? Why are you promoting this one?”

I’m not.

I don’t subscribe to any organized religion. I am, however, very spiritual. Christ – was said to be the “son of God” – we all are.

What made him special?

What I believe: Is that Jesus was a wonderful example of what we all have the potential to be.

When you are in perfect alignment with your higher self and the Universe it opens up a world of power and possibilities.


His ideals are what many of us subscribe to.


At the very least, he was a very noteworthy person and historical figure… This series promises to be very interesting.

There is no one in history whose life,
teachings and death have had a greater
impact on humanity.

This film has been created to bring light to who Christ was, from his humble beginnings to his teachings (whose radical views on the value of women, children, and “the least of these” turned society upside-down in just three short years), all the way through his death and resurrection.

A life-changing journey around the world and through history, guided by experts in the field.

As we explore the life and times of Jesus Christ, you’ll hear from leading experts in the fields of History, Philosophy, Science, and Theology – as evidence is unveiled and viewers discover the tangible truth of who Christ the Savior was.

Far from disproving the claims of the Bible, you’ll see how scientific and historical facts add up to prove that Christ was, indisputably, who he claimed to be.

In a world where faith is increasingly devalued, this series offers a fresh look at the life and teachings of Christ as well as sound spiritual and scientific answers to some of the most pressing questions facing humanity.

Confused about the vaccination issue? Join the crowd…

Because if you’ve been watching the news, then you know things have reached a fever pitch…

You see, after my friends, Dr. Patrick Gentempo and Jeff Hays, released their breakthrough docu-series, Vaccines Revealed in 2017, the lies and corruption regarding government mandated vaccines were finally exposed.

Their findings? Those vaccines can actually MAKE you sick instead of preventing you from getting sick.

This has released a storm of outrage and demands for investigations into the underhanded practices of Big Pharma…

But with all this arguing and back-and-forth, you still have crucial questions, including:

– If the law says so, should I vaccinate my kids?
– If they’re already vaccinated, what do I do next?

We’ve got your answers right here.

Discordant Energy

While friends don’t always need to agree on everything there comes a point in many friendships where there just isn’t enough left in common to maintain the bond. Discord becomes the key element and you find yourself being off-put by that person’s energy rather than drawn in as you used to be. It doesn’t mean you don’t care about them anymore or that any love you had for them is gone, it does sometimes mean that you may both be better off moving on in life, separately.

Life is to be enjoyed harmoniously with the universe and with others. Anything that seems in opposition to that needs to be released for your own highest good as well as that of the other person.

The Red Tide Organophosphate Cleanse – How I Healed Myself

I was a medical mystery. Living here in Southwest Florida back in December of 2017 I had a sudden onset massive headache that no doctor could figure out. Many medical doctors, many blood tests, MRI’s, Echocardiogram, EKG, Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Massage, ENT’s, Endocrinologists and more. I had reached a point where I had literally tried everything I could think of.

It wasn’t that I was getting frequent headaches, it was one solid headache for 11 months interrupted only by pain medication. When it would wear off, I was again left clutching my head in tears.

Things changed when I happened to read an article in Newsweek that said Red Tide had been plaguing Florida for 10 months. That was the exact time my headache began. I started to wonder, could they be linked?

What I found is that currently in our water is not only the yearly red tide (brevetoxin) but also the blue-green algae (cyanotoxin) both are toxic to wildlife and humans. As if that wasn’t enough, the runoff water being released from Lake Okeechobee has pesticide and herbicide chemicals in it including glyphosate (Monsanto’s popularly sold weed killer RoundUp) which can lead to organophosphate toxicity in humans and animals alike. It is a known carcinogenic that is somehow not yet banned.

I researched and called the health department and even the CDC who both told me “There is no test”. That simply isn’t the case. You can be tested for cyanotoxin via a nasal swab. You can be tested by blood or urine for the brevetoxin in Red Tide though I have yet to find a lab that offers the test needed. All three toxins are in a group of similar neurotoxic compounds which are tasteless and odorless. They can be aerosolized into the wind and carried for miles inland. Toxicity can result from breathing the toxic air, touching it via skin, or eating contaminated seafood. Organophosphate poisoning is easily tested using the Cholinesterase RBC and Plasma blood test. This test was my answer.

When I got the test results back, initially I saw that my values were in green. I assumed (wrongly) that meant I was “ok”. In reading the CDC website, it clearly stated that several doctors and researchers agreed despite the lab values, that toxicity can present itself starting at only 40% of the maximum marked value. This landed me at 78% on the RBC and 53% on the plasma.

I had been being poisoned. The culprit was organophosphates. I am a Graphic Designer and Writer who works inside and am not exposed to pesticides or herbicides of any kind in a normal way. I live at 6 miles inland from the water.

Believing I had found the root cause I went about searching for a solution and thankfully, I found one. Working with my long time Chiropractor/Nutritionist who consulted with other physicians to come up with the best solution for a neurotoxin cleanse, one was chosen.

It is a 10 day cleanse that is intended to release the held toxins within the liver as well as other cells in the body.

An honest review: I have done lots of other cleanses in the past 20 years. This one I started at the end of a head cold simply because of timing with my upcoming wedding and wanting to be finally better. It made it even more difficult to tell if it was totally detox symptoms or left over head cold.

Days 1-3 It was not too bad. Slightly sniffly with a hot head, feeling tired.

Days 4-8 it felt as if I had a massive head cold or flu. I could tell it was detox symptoms because it came and went in waves rather than just sticking around. Day 6, though I work at home, I was unable to work at all and spent the day pretty much face down on the bed. Day 7 and 8 were rough too. Lots of hot Epsom salts baths trying to soak and sweat it out.

Day 9 I began to feel somewhat human again and just took it really easy.

Day 10 I was again feeling somewhat normalized. Headache now is gone.

More info on what to expect when doing a cleanse – what is a Herxheimer Reaction?

I have not had a chance to verify this change through a repeat blood test, but what I do know is that my 11-month debilitating headache is now blissfully gone and I am feeling more like myself again though I do still have other symptoms at least that massive head pain that woke me up at 3 am daily taking more pain medication is no longer. While the damage done from the organophosphate poisoning can never be undone, at least with the cleanse, I feel like I have been able to clear my body’s ability to deal with it better. Rather like changing the oil filter regularly on your car…

*If you do the cleanse and stay in Florida you will need to redo it every year or so because you are still being exposed. I myself am choosing to move out of state to save my health.

TO DO THE CLEANSE: Please contact the office of Dr. Jason Kaster Fort Myers, Florida at 239-332-2555 www.drkasters.com info@drkasters.com and let them know you would like to be considered for the Red Tide/Organophosphate cleanse. You do not have to be in the area to do the cleanse. The testing and the cleanse together I believe is $400. (More info on symptoms)

Disclaimer: Because it is such an intense internal cleanse and many of us are incredibly overloaded with toxins if you are not in the best of health otherwise it is often wise to do it as a doctor supervised cleanse rather than just trying to go it alone. My intent is to heal, not to harm anyone and I myself am not a doctor so I am not simply posting the products to use on here.

Sincerely,

Sarah J. Barendse

Red Tide – Organophosphate – Blue Green Algae – My Lab Test Results as Promised

This is really quite interesting.

Though the labs show green and I assumed that meant good at first. In reading the CDC’s website. That isn’t necessarily the case.
According to the CDC’s website (Page I am looking at here https://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/csem/csem.asp?csem=11&po=16 
Level correlation with toxicity – Even with the more accurate RBC cholinesterase, the point at which various authors have suggested that toxicity begins to appear ranges from 40% to 75% of normal values. (Carlton, Simpson et al. 1998) (Romano, McDonough et al. 2001; Clark 2002)

MY RESULTS AND THE TRANSLATION:
Cholinesterase RBC came in at 11694 IU/L and the range given was 9572-15031IU/L.
That puts me at 78% of normal values….
Cholinesterase Pasma I scored 3353 IU/L and the given range is noted as 2504-6297 IU/L.
That puts me at 53% of normal values.
So even though the labs mark me as green. If symptoms noted by the CDC start at 40%…. my values are elevated enough that it very likely is my culprit in making me ill for the last 10 months.

TEST YOURSELF: I found the lab test to see if you are holding toxins from the water and air exposure here in SWFL from the Blue Green Algae and Red Tide (Cyanotoxin/Brevetoxin). This has been confirmed effective by a AnyLabTestNow representative.

The test is called the Cholinestrase RBC Plasma test. 

You can do it at either www.anylabtestnow.com or www.questdiagnostics.com code 338. And labcorps has it too. https://www.labcorp.com/test-menu/22471/cholinesterase-rbc

Requires no doctors orders. I checked with them to make sure they offer it and they do, its just not listed on their site (as they have 10,000 tests the database would be huge to create).
At Any Lab Test Now it’s $183 (they don’t accept insurance).

Quest Diagnostics is also in the $180 range. Lab corps does not accept patients without a doctors order, and insurance may or may not cover it so be sure to check beforehand.

There is free testing going on for the cyanobacteria at the Broadway palms theater soon, BUT BEWARE you dont even get your test results. It’s a blind group study!


TO DETOX:
As mentioned in previous blogs, I have just started day 1 of the neurotoxin detox today Sept 27. Its a 10 day cleanse. Ill let you know if it works. If so, ill be sharing!
