If you’ve dropped by to see what’s new: we’re doing a word detect and explore: It’s also a game with five answers. Answers at bottom of page and they give you even more. Pleeeze don’t look till the end.
1. What’s a four-letter word that means to “Mend” a hole in your sock? _ _ _ _-it.
5. How would you pantomime that four letter word with your hands? But what about with your feet? DO IT NOW with your feet. But take your _ _ _ _ _ off so you stay standing rather than slip-sliding away.
Well, that’s a start.
Just what are ACTION SENTENCES?
A string of action words – those that make you move in any direction – up, down, low, high, forward, back or side to side – in a special way. You could also move in place and you might do it with rhythm or a special kind of timing… fast slow… really quick or sloooow-motion.
Before you read more, see if you can think up a few Action WORDS and pick your favorites.
See if you can find one or more HERE: Ready to rock ‘n roll?
- Freeze or flow or do you already know how to groove and toss with words like these?
- Don’t quote me on that, but if you can’t raise your standards can you at least meet me where I am?
- What? You’d rather depart?
- Snake it, shake it, flip or flop in unless you’d rather drop in.
- Rumba, Cha cha… are you a dance number or do you lumber, slow and sweet?
Got the gist? Just a little twist and maybe you can snap your fingers, glance at the suggested words and figure eight them into… a circle dance. Come on. TAKE A CHANCE.
Can you contribute to the nation, or, are you glued to your location?
Spot dot Spot dot Spot dot… Freeze.
4. IF YOU STILL HAVEN’T GOT IT… Don’t spell the words out, do them. Fun or just _ _ way to start a dance craze?
Jump race stop squeeze.
Glide glide glide |walk sideways| sneak backwards| tiptoe now.
Wring hop gallop slither roll creep.
2. Meander like a gander. Duck Duck _ _ _ _ _.
3. If OJ means orange juice, are you T O’d that the first letter of this clue came at the end to confuse you? The first letter of this three-letter word sounds the same as this 3-letter word: _ee.
Take a peek:
Need help studying or hanging out with grownups during holiday preparations? Worrying too much? Feeling scared but don’t know where to turn when everyone around you says “Not now” or “It costs too much”?
Almost any one will enjoy chair massage, yoga, and moves that even a JEDI Master would recommend. Once they try it, people generally love energy work like Reiki and chakra balancing, acupressure, and new energy psychology tools such as EFT that can help with self-confidence and passing tests, and feeling low because grandma’s bad knees bother her so much.
Look what we’re doing each month in Toledo, Ohio.
WHEN: Dec. 16, 2008 – 6:30-8:30 p.m. (event and sessions offered FREE though locations may vary)
WHERE: the NEW Yoga Integration Studio at 4633 W. Bancroft St. • Toledo, OH 43615
(419) A-OM-YOGA (266-9642)
Dress comfortably, as Yoga Jenn, the featured presenter, will give a short yoga session at the beginning of the evening. Then seek out what you’re there for: to feel more relaxed, happier, more encouraged, or to try some new moves that are different than yoga and may be more of your own invention.
Donations to defray the host’s costs are graciously accepted (suggested minimum $3/per evening). Corporate sponsors for future events would be joyously appreciated. Children, seniors, adults welcome.
It’s Time for You.
Happy Holidays. The POFFF Master/Weaver of Yarns hopes to meet you there, especially if you know who Luke Skywalker, Galadriel, Yoda, gnomes, elves, fairies and Hogwarts are.
The use of entertainment to inspire people is growing, especially as we face so many changes in our lives.
We learn almost every day that the biomedical or western medicine surgery and drug approaches to common illnesses and diseases cannot fix what ails us, or what makes us feel unhappy.
In an effort to do all they can for themselves and their children, many people are turning to complementary, eastern and alternative medicine (CAM), with massage therapy and acupuncture being popular choices.
How is that entertainment? Well, entertainment is an experience and something that we see and feel that engages us and makes us aware of our lives.
Such experiences are your chance to meet energy scientists and practitioners, and learn about new words like biofeedback, or what activities like prayer, affirmation, or meditation offer you and those you care about.
Healing circles, community shares, workshops, sessions, and retreats that offer massage, meditation, or CCT are your chance to meet some of the pioneers in fields that may be new to you and new to the place where you live.
Who knows what you’ll learn about your power to do and be whatever you dream about.
You may meet, listen to and receive such a power session from someone who has used Reiki, a quiet way of being and praying energetically with those struggling with how they feel in their minds and bodies. You may learn about and begin to ponder your power to relieve a headache.
You may learn how to reduce the stresses of hard work, schoolwork, and exams, or injections and other medical procedures that someone who is well or who is not might experience on a continual basis.
You may dance with a meditation teacher and movement wizard who knows that when she brings her skills in touch and movement into difficult or troubling situations, children relax, learn, sleep at night more easily, and sometimes burst into shared laughter.
Such experience creatives use touch, energywork and life coaching and guidance counseling with kids who have cancer, families and caregivers in hospital settings, and people who no longer know who they are. These experts offer you and adult teachers ways to pay attention to what’s important to you. They also can suggest non-touch resources, as well as the benefits in school of reduced stress and bullying, and increased harmony for all concerned.
Talk to any one of these energy artists and learn how touch can help mom-dad-sister-brother-and you feel calmer and more at ease and how certain smells (called aromatherapy), nature, art and dance and dietary changes can help almost anyone feel better and enjoy more.
These are some new holiday gifts for you. If you live near Toledo, come explore and connect. Feel the joy. Let go of what’s troubling you and find a new you deep inside.

Are you worried about lots of stuff?
Do you find it hard to take tests because you get so scared that you forget everything you know?
Do you feel afraid sometimes about the same things, but don’t know what to do about how you feel?
There are many ways to help you with what are called anxiety, phobias, and fears and the ones I mention here are from energy healing, or energy psychology, but the great thing is, you don’t have to be a psychologist to use them.
One way is Hawaiian and is called DMT or the Dynamind Technique. There are instructions on the linked page and they are free. There is a booklet you can send for and if you send a donation, Aloha International will mail you booklets to serve a group you belong to.
Another way was developed by a man named Gary Craig and is called EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique. The POFFF Master learned about it from a father who uses it and has worked with young people. A school psychologist also uses it at Maumee Valley Country Day School in Ohio with young people, and it is part of a research project being conducted there. If you click on the link, you can send for a free EFT manual that will arrive by e-mail. There are videos and other information on the site.
Both systems use tapping that you can do on yourself. The points you tap on are actually acupuncture points, the ancient Chinese method that has a lot of research behind its effectiveness. You can tap your way to self-confidence, and you can prepare for and pass tests feeling calm and safe as many other students and adults have done using these techniques.
You can also overcome shyness and embarrassment that may stop you from being all you dream of being.
Besides these techniques, you can also visit the page called, Chamber of Energy (above) and breathe in the energy there that is called Reiki. The POFFF Master personally uses Reiki and Crystalline Consciousness Technique (CCT) to help her in daily life in situations where she feels uncomfortable or unsure of herself. She recommends both systems, and feels that they are very spiritual, though in no way affiliated with a specific religion.
If you discover something that works for you, please let the POFFF Master know about it by leaving a comment below. What helps you may help someone else, especially someone who right now is saying or feeling that these ideas are ridiculous, stupid, or faulty in some way, or has tried many things and feels that nothing works. Don’t give up!
Please note that even though EFT may be called energy psychology and that some of these techniques are used by therapists and counselors, some problems are best directed to a licensed professional like a school psychologist or a medical doctor, especially if they interrupt your ability to live your life. At the very least, mention reoccuring symptoms or problems when you visit doctors, school counselors, or other helping professionals. If you use any of the practices in this blog, you may be able to cut down on medications or avoid expensive or invasive medical treatments.
One last idea you might try is to take a little time alone. Sit quietly. Breathe in deeply three times. Go deep inside yourself. Pretend you have a magic map that shows you things inside yourself that only you can see. With your eyes closed, look at this map inside you. It may look something like the map Harry Potter uses to locate people inside Hogwarts.
Your map may give you pictures, images, feelings, or shapes and colors of energy inside you. You may know or feel guided how to best use or change that energy so that you feel better. Allow your imagination to bring relief by working with the energy or picture. Change a color, shape, or size of what you find there and then notice what happens to how you feel or what you find in your life.
When I locate energy that doesn’t feel good inside, I use a magic vacuum cleaner to suck it up. It’s a nifty model because it sucks up the energy and changes the energy it picks up. It shoots the changed energy like fairy magic dust or star dust out its back side away from me.
I hope one or more of these techniques helps you today. Energy fields also help you. If you haven’t read the blog on setting these, you might do that now and try it out several times before you have a big test or event. Let me know how you do.

Carly G’s dragon comes back.
Our young friend, Carly, lives in Walbridge, Ohio. The Pofff Master thanks her for her incredible art, which may have been difficult to see when it was posted originally because it was part of a moving collage.
If you’re here, reading this blog today, some aspect of an energy wish has been granted. For here on this site, we’re all about energy – literally.
We’re talking about energy almost all the time, even when we don’t realize it. Feeling vibes is feeling energy.
All the Pofff Master’s art has good vibrations and will play with you to discover what you would like more of, less of, connections to, ways to be and do. Most of the time, the art helps you feel better. Feeling better is a quality known as “well-being.”
Well-being. Let those 2 words that are one word conjure up images and feelings for you. Notice how they change, grow, become something else. Notice how this changes you inside and how you look at things on the outside. That’s what energy does.
“You can be happy or sad, it doesn’t matter. You get to choose. You can go this way or that way. You get to choose. Figure it all out as you go. There’s not one right path. There are many right paths. Do anything you can do — which means think it or speak it or do it — that makes you feel a little better.”
