Venture Inward is Temporarily Closed

Dear Venture Inward Family:  In order to keep everyone as safe as can be, we have decided to close Venture Inward for the next two weeks as we move through this health crisis.

Venture Inward is closed at least until the end of March.  To check the status, check our Website at:  www.ventureinwardcenter.com or our Facebook at:  https://facebook.com/VentureInward

From: Marge and Joanne

When crisis comes to our neighborhood, state, country, the world…we, at Venture Inward, being compassionate soul travelers, empathize with the worry, distress, illness, and even pain and suffering, of others AND WE WANT to do something…we want to help/make changes/be there in some way.  While we may not or cannot be there physically, we can be there prayerfully and we can respond with love light healing and hope.

I  RECEIVED THESE 2 MEDITATIONS FROM THE HEALING TOUCH PROFFESIONAL ASSOCIATION and have been encouraged to share them to help in the healing of yourself, one another, the planet…..

During this Crisis, it’s hard to know how to respond…but, what we each can do is join our healing energy with others to multiply its effectiveness.

These powerful meditations will help you to focus your healing energies with other powerful energy healers. To multiply and intensify its effectiveness, we at VENTURE INWARD are suggesting that we meditate together tonight Friday, March 13 at 7:00PM and every evening at 7:00PM as we all continue to move through this health crisis.

Perhaps you can “recruit” others to meditate with you at 7:00PM by inviting everyone you interact with, speak to, meet face-to-face, email, text, Facebook, Skype…so that as many as possible are connected at the same exact time in a powerful healing meditation/visualization…blanketing  ourselves, families, community, State, Country,  Planet, and ALL healthcare workers, physicians, scientists, researchers, AND all the World Leaders at every level of Government…so EVERYONE can work together. 

Our powerful energetic forces of healing will reach all those who are in need and we know can affect change,   With much lovelightlaughter…yes…even laughter as we must remain light,
Marge and Joanne and the entire Venture Inward Family

P.S. Thank you for your caring, healing, loving heart…We Can affect change…so let’s pull together and JUST DO IT!

Here are the 2 Meditations from  HTPA:
Meditation # 1: For the people needing support at this time.
I want to acknowledge that you are here because the energies around you are organizing to be supportive for an individual or a group of individuals.  So before we begin, call forward into your heart the energies of that person or those people who are reaching out and asking for support.

Call forward compassion for the others. Call forward love.
First I’d like to invite you and all who are joining with us at this time or in future times into shared sacred space and invite a column of light in with our awareness and invitation. 
Let’s invite the great spirit of many names, namely the name of love into this space together.
And set intention that the energy of this practice sends love and healing to the hearts and souls of those who are asking for this support at this time.
To begin, take a few deep and cleansing breaths and bring your self into this shared moment of devotion and healing. As you arrive here, notice yourself grounded in your body and attuned both to yourself and the planet.
Draw your attention deeper into the support that is here for you. 
Knowing that the Earth is a model for healing, connect to her wisdom of nurture and the natural processes of healing and invite her energy to fill the well of your healing capacity. Bring your attention to your heart and notice how it is filled with a golden light.  As you notice the well of your healing capacity filling, notice as that golden light begins to fill the entire chamber of your body. 
You become a light body of Golden warm healing light.  This light is restorative and renewing. Imbued in it are the energies of hope, compassion, and pure love.
Feel yourself as a pure vehicle of healing – a spark of the Great Spirit. 
Every cell in your body is a cell that can communicate with the cells of others.  Every heartbeat is a prayer for the hearts of others.  Every breath a breath for those who are held in breathless grief or suffering.   
The golden nurture that flows within you is also flowing into the cells of those who are calling out for your help.
You are the body of light that emanates the golden light of love and nurture out into this world. The streams of golden light, like the sunlight, emanate through you. 
For the next five minutes, stay focused on sending that healing golden light with intention that it goes where needed aligned with the Highest Good and Right Order of the Universe. 
Take Five minutes to share and emanate collective healing golden light.
It has been now five minutes and if you wish to sit quietly and continue to emanate the golden light of restoration, renewal, and love, please just pause this audio and stay in your sacred space until you feel ready to ground yourself and provide gratitude for the opportunity to help.
If you are ready to come back into your own space, knowing you can return to this meditation of healing anytime, I invite you to bring you attention back to your breath.  Deepening the connection between your breath and your mind.  Bringing your attention back to your time and space.
Remember as you walk through the rest of today or rest into this evening, you can return to sending this golden light out to those who are needing it. 
Thank you for sharing this healing time for those who are reaching for support.   Bless you for your precious heart and your stand in the role of this positive evolution of this planet.

Suggestions from a Virologist to help you to stay safe during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic

Below is a description of the coronavirus info and recommendations from  James Robb, MD, San Diego, a virologist who’s worked with this virus for almost 50 years. COVID-19 and has an affinity for pulmonary receptors that is extraordinary.  Feel free to copy and send to family & friends.

From: James Robb, MD
Subject: What I am doing for the upcoming COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic
Dear Colleagues, as some of you may recall, when I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.
The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April.

Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.:

1) NO HANDSHAKING! Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

2) Use ONLY your knuckle to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip – do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and  post office/commercial doors.

4) Use disinfectant wipes at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

5) Wash your hands with soap for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from ANY activity that involves locations where other people have been.

6) Keep a bottle of sanitizer available at each of your home’s entrances. AND in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.

7) If possible, cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!

8) Use zinc lozenges. These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel ANY “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.
I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained,
Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. BUT, there will be NO drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

 I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. You are welcome to share this email. Good luck to all of us! .  James Robb, MD
