Very Inspiring Blogger Award Nominations


Thank you to Wanda of Ale Ksiazki/And Yet the Books

for nominating me for Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Thank you very kindly, I’m thrilled! Many of you may know of Ale Ksiazki/And Yet the Books sharing the history and culture of Poland. Certainly inspires in me a desire to go and visit Poland, especially Dom Kuncewiczow which is described with thoughtful beauty. Please visit this very interesting blog, you will receive a compelling look at Polish culture:

I am coming to an understanding of these awards. They are nominations in that someone has to recognize you as being of interest to honor. But only you can make it an award by acceptance and placing the crown on your blog. The seeds of nominations blow upon the wind, some land in gardens and are enjoyed as an unexpected flowering, others land in a sea of so many glittering prizes that they bring no attention to themselves, just bobbing about as another bauble, while others land on rock and can find no purchase in a stony silence. So it has always been with seeds that blow in the wind. But, always the plant hopes for the best and sends its seeds out to flower.

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award comes with the responsibility of nominating 15 blogs for the honor, display the award on your blog, link back to the one who nominated you, and tell 7 unknown things about oneself. Time for hardest one:

7 unknown things about myself

1) I put soy sauce on almost any food (mashed potatoes, soups, spaghetti, etc.). 2) I really enjoy scrapping off old paint and glazing windows. 3) I’ve lived on the West Coast, East Coast,  no coasts, and prefer being at least a mile high within mountains. 4) My most read books in childhood where 19 volumes in the Wizard of Oz series, definitely colored my perspective on life. 5) I can quote Carlos Castaneda anytime for any reason, but usually won’t. 6) I will not blame things on Mercury Retrograde. 7) And, following the advice of Carolyn Myss to say something positive about oneself: I am a really good Reiki therapist. I’m also a natural teacher.

Now for the really wonderful part of receiving an award, the honor of nominating 15 other blogs for  The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I decided to look for those whom I have not already recognized, but who have inspired me along the way of this path with heart. In no particular order they are:

1) Some Photos and Fancies for questions that need to be asked.

2) Tracie Carlos  for perceptions and insights into autism

3) Virgilio is on a quiet journey…and wondering… for the love that pours from his poetry

4) Leaf and Twig for photographed poems

Klaus Heinemann shares Orb photos

We have a special guest for this post, Klaus Heinemann, Ph.D. who is co-author of two books that are the classics on orbs: The Orb Project (with Miceal Ledwith, D.D., LL.D.), and Orbs Their Mission and Messages of Hope (with Gundi Heinemann). Dr. Heinemann is going to elucidate some of the meaning that can be obtained from observing orbs in photographs.

Klaus Heinemann discusses orbs

Dr. Heinemann narrates, “A friend of a relative took these pictures of his 12-year old daughter (red shirt) at a school activity about one hour apart.”

Orb closeup

Take a close look at the girl wearing a red shirt. That is not a pendant in the middle of her chest, it is an orb.

Klaus Heinemann interprets orbs

“When our relative looked at the photos and discovered the orbs, he told his friend about our work and interest in orbs.”

Orb of heart transplant girl

“Ten years earlier, when the girl was two years old, she had received a heart transplant.”


Thank you to Klaus Heinemann for sharing these photographs, which increases our understanding of what the appearance of orbs may indicate. We look forward to your sharing more insights into the phenomenon of orbs.

Dr. Heinemann holds a Ph.D. in experimental physics from the University of Tübingen. He worked for many years in materials science research at NASA, UCLA, and as a research professor at Stanford University. He is founder and chairman of a corporation that performs scientific research in computational fluid dynamics, materials development, and nanotechnology under contracts from NASA. For several decades Dr. Heinemann has worked on mending the commonly perceived rift between science and spirituality and lectures on expanding perception.

For those of you who are new to this blog, or would like to refresh your memory as to what orbs are, perhaps this will help:
