I’ve Tried Everything!

When people have been stuck on an issue for some time they can come to an obvious conclusion…



When people have been stuck on an issue for some time they can come to an obvious conclusion – that they’ve tried everything.  No doubt they’ve tried a lot, but there can be a fine line between resting on a sob story and being diligently open to answers.  I’ve come across a lot of people who have struggled with health for many years and are now closed off to anything new, because they’ve ‘tried everything.’  Sometimes, those things they’ve ‘tried’ they didn’t do right.  Perhaps their unconscious hampered them, because it loves the hard luck story. Sure we can be dismayed if we put forth an honest effort or intention and we come up with nothing, but it’s important to remain true to our dream or goal.

  • People run stories in their minds.  Some stories are about hard luck.
  • Part of the human condition is to pass blame.  If we had nothing standing in our way, we’d have to take full responsibility for ourselves.  
  • There is an old saying (well, it’s from Star Wars): “Do or do not, there is no try.”
  • Sometimes we don’t actually want to heal or succeed, we want it to look like we did everything possible, but fell short.  
  • No one ever solved a problem by focusing on the problem.  They focused on the solution. Without a guiding star, an overarching dream that compels us, we will never move forward.  If we spend our time focusing on and obsessing over our problems, ‘trying everything,’ we will continue to ‘try everything.’

The following premise applies to everything in life:

Be dedicated to the process, but unattached to the outcome.

How do we achieve this?

  • Acknowledge where we are.
  • Observe it, with no emotional attachment.
  • Determine our overarching dream.
  • Figure out what’s wrong.
  • Make a plan of action.
  • Forget about what’s wrong.
  • Dedicate to the process, forget about the outcome.
  • Work diligently and joyfully toward the dream, with the intention of serving a higher purpose, not ourselves.

The old expression ‘journey over destination,’ rings especially true.  The point of life isn’t to ‘have’ everything we ‘want,’ but what we learn, and how we grow.  If we lie to ourselves (‘try everything’) we will be fraught with frustration, anger, sadness, despair.  If we are honest in our thoughts, motives and actions, we will always be fulfilled, no matter the circumstances.  We usually end up with what we wanted anyway, because we gave up wanting.

When we want something, we can affirm our lack of it, and push it away from us.

People make ‘getting better’ (from a health condition), losing weight, making more money or finding a partner their raison d’etre.  They focus only on having what they want, with no reason to have it.  Want more money?  Great!  Why? What are you going to put into the world, in order to have that in return?   What are you going to do with that once you have it?  If you don’t know, you probably won’t have it.  You’ll ‘try everything’ in order to get there, but never get there.  Want to lose weight, cure a parasite or yeast infection or recover from chronic fatigue?  Great!  Why?  What are you going to do with that health once you have it?  If you don’t know, you won’t have it.  What are you going to put into the world in order to receive it?  Nothing?  You don’t have the energy to output?  The world owes you something?  Well then, enjoy ‘trying everything.’

Something I learned from Paul Chek is the importance of establishing a dream.  If you don’t know what your dream is, think of your nightmare or worst case scenario, and go in the opposite direction of that.  A tip: all ancient texts speak of giving to give, not giving to get.  The action is the same, but the intention, and result (karma), are night and day.

Something Your Baby Will Be Happy With

I tried EC for one week, and I’m never going back.



I tried EC for one week, and I’m never going back. Elimination communication allows your baby to relieve themselves outside their diapers and for you to be in tune with their bathroom needs just as you do with knowing when they are hungry.

This can lead to caregivers becoming more in tune with the baby, giving the baby the option of hygiene, cutting down on waste/laundry, and assisting in earlier toilet training. In many countries today, EC is the standard instead of disposable diapers, just without the fancy name.

Do you use the restroom when you wake up or leave to go somewhere? Well, so does baby, and this is the concept of the four easy catches. If it all sounds complicated, just using time and transition to your advantage is a great place to start. The “four easy catches” are offering the baby the potty upon waking up, at diaper changes, signs of effort, and during the transition (getting in and out of something such as the car seat or baby carrier).

For Mothers (or other caregivers) familiar with EC but have yet to try it because it sounds too daunting, I encourage you to try it!
Before my daughter was born, I knew I wanted to use cloth diapers and implement EC. But I wanted to do these things as they came organically and not force myself if it brought more stress than benefit. By three weeks, I was using cloth diapers, and by 6 1/2 weeks, I began EC with her.
In the first week, my baby had only a few poopy diapers. She usually lets me know when she needs to go. Sometimes, I miss it, and sometimes, I put her on the potty, and nothing happens. It is important to remember why you started and not focus on the misses.

While this article wasn’t meant to be a complete study on the subject, I did want to introduce others to the practice or share my positive experience with those aware of EC.

Many resources online cover the subject in depth, I encourage mothers to read around if this is new to you.
I just wanted to share that it works! I took it slow and still utilize diapers, but I am super happy I began to try and implement EC.

Bees Know Best

Bees are truly a marvelous part of God’s creation and one I draw inspiration from daily as I begin the journey of tending to their homes and lives.



By: Pie Lady Bear

I will often sit and watch them. The importance of their continuous coming and going is apparent even at a distance. Bees are truly a marvelous part of God’s creation and one I draw inspiration from daily as I begin the journey of tending to their homes and lives.

The substances that a hive uses to sustain and thrive are ones that we can also greatly benefit from, and, as the winter weather sets in and lips become chapped, were the illumination behind an impromptu batch of lip balm that you may also find useful!

Beeswax; If you can find it from a local beekeeper, who has taken it from a brace comb that is built in awkward places or melted down frames that are no longer in use, the benefit is the added propolis which is a glue-like material made by the bees from tree resins to seal cracks in their hive and contains exceptional healing properties as well as smelling incredible. My husband, DreadNaught Bear, has been making healing salves with beeswax, pine resin, and sunflower oil long before I began keeping bees. You can find his recipe in the second issue of the Beartaria Times Magazine to cure all that ails you! Beeswax can also be found at a local health food store or taken from pure beeswax candles.

Coconut oil; I prefer organic and use it in my cooking as well, so it’s worth buying a jar.

Peppermint oil; I only added three drops for the small glass jar of lip balm as using more would cause a slight burning sensation and takes away from the amazing smell of the beeswax.

I made my lip balm in a small jar that is placed in a pot on the stove with about an inch of water surrounding it and a covered lid. Turn on low heat and frequently check until the wax and coconut oil have melted, then add the few drops of peppermint oil, stir and allow to cool. That’s it! So simple, and depending on the amount you would like to make or the size of your container, I went with a ratio of 2:1 coconut oil to wax, and that made for a smoother consistency. God Bless the Bears as we strive to focus our lives around the good, the true, and the beautiful 🤎
