The government’s tax structure encourages donations to organizations that serve the society and its members. The policy is brilliantly crafted to call to our higher angels. Approximately 3% of people’s incomes in the U.S. goes to charities, and this is the time of year that many are deciding where and how and how much to give.
For us, our differences come out as we make these decisions. Most of what we can spare goes right back into bringing Energy Medicine to the world, but giving even a little bit to other causes aligns our spirits with those efforts. Both of us are passionate about social injustice and have been giving to Amnesty International and the Southern Poverty Law Center for decades. Beyond this, Donna is more drawn toward causes that directly help individuals who are suffering, whether through hunger, oppression, or abuse. David is more drawn toward those oriented around larger social issues such as education, population control, and the environment. We both support one another’s inclinations but sometimes disagree on how much goes in each direction. These make for interesting dialogues that cause us to examine our deepest values.
Where we come together with no effort is in our desire to teach our nine-year-old grandson, Tiernan (Dondi’s and Roger’s son), to think about what he can do to help others less fortunate. We provide him with some funds that he can designate among a variety of worthy causes. This year he is donating much of his allotment to an organization that brings clothing and medicine to needy children. He is also directing some of it for providing a duckling to a hungry family who will “benefit from hundreds of large, protein-rich eggs all year long. Extra duck eggs and hatched ducklings can be sold to buy medicine or help send a child to school,” not to mention supplying valuable down-feathers for bedding.
Another area in which he needs education has to do with the overwhelming number of good causes, the vast number of charities championing those causes, and the fact that some are more trustworthy than others. As Tiernan gets older, we will be teaching him how to use resources such as Charity Watch. These sites evaluate charities according to common-sense benchmarks such as how much of every dollar donated actually gets to the cause being supported rather than going into administrative or fund-raising activities.
Giving at whatever level you can, and even the process of choosing in a wise and heart-centered manner, aligns your spirit with the larger community and greater good.

Energy Healing in Action:
Bringing a Dog Back from the Brink
When confronted with the declining vigor of her 16-year-old poodle, Jean Dresden found no solace in what standard veterinary practice could offer. She instead applied Energy Medicine exercises and found her pet to be responsive, resilient and able to enjoy life once again.
Jean’s dog, Squirt, was showing signs of aging. He was blind, arthritic and had been whimpering and showing signs of confusion. His condition worsened, and he became very lethargic and almost completely non-responsive. Squirt would not eat. He would only mildly stir when petted and had to be hand held in a position to urinate. Jean took him to the vet. The physical exam, blood tests, urine analysis, and x-rays all failed to show an underlying physical condition causing his symptoms. The vet could only suggest that an antibiotic – Clavomax - may provide some relief, but cautioned that it just may be the natural end to the dog’s life.
Jean was unwilling to accept this fatalistic diagnosis. Just 30 days prior, Squirt had been active and alert and able to hike in the hills. Jean decided to use Energy Medicine techniques. She traced his meridians using a chart showing meridians on a dog. She also used several of the exercises from the Daily Energy Routine:

We're Celebrating the Nine Energy Systems!!!
The Celtic Weave
Part Five of our Nine Energy Systems Series
The Celtic Weave
The body’s energies spin, spiral, curve, twist, crisscross, and weave themselves into patterns of magnificent beauty. The equilibrium of this kaleidoscope of colors and shapes is maintained by an energy system known by different names to energy healers throughout the world. In the East, it has been called the "Tibetan energy ring." In yoga tradition, it is represented by two curved lines that cross seven times, symbolically encasing the seven chakras. In the West, it is seen in the caduceus, the intertwined serpents ¬also crossing seven times¬ found on the staff that is the symbol of the medical profession. Donna uses the term Celtic weave not only because she has a personal affinity with Celtic healing, but also because the pattern looks to her like the old Celtic drawings of a spiraling, sideways infinity sign, never beginning and never ending and sometimes forming a triple spiral. Like an invisible thread that keeps all the energy systems functioning as a single unit, the Celtic weave networks throughout and around the body in spiraling figure-eight patterns. The double helix of DNA is this pattern in microcosm. The left hemisphere’s control of the right side of the body and the right hemisphere’s control of the left side is this pattern writ large.

The Celtic Weave helps to secure your Aura around you so you feel confident and fabulous!
