BLAINESWORLD #936 (Please send any comments to:

Section 2, part 2

(1) Marcie F. in PA [on BOYHOOD]: The Inquirer reviewer raved about it, 4 stars. But when I saw the running time and the general premise, I could tell it wasn’t a film my husband would enjoy. He recently went away with buddies on a golf trip and here was my night to see Boyhood. It is hard to explain in words, how that movie affected me. You become very emotionally invested in this family and especially the boy and all the life changes and disappointments, the ups & downs in everyday life, that makes you the person you ultimately become. They stop being characters in a movie and become people you’ve come to know. I heard an interview with the director, where they asked him how he knew this little boy was “the one”, and what would have happened if, as he grew up, couldn’t act and naturally react, on cue. A question that you cannot help but ponder as the story unfolds. The director answered that what ever way the boy reacted would be his honest reaction to the situation. Maybe that’s why it’s so emotionally compelling.

(2) Carole B. in NC: Great newsletter Blaine!  Great job on your debut at ACT. Your fans will be looking for more from the show stopping Blaine G.!

(3) Eileen C. in PA: We saw “Boyhood.”  Yes, an excellent film although I thought it was a bit long.  Saw you could have seen even more of it.

Response: I didn’t look at my watch once when watching it–something I often do. Contrast that to MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT. I kept looking at my watch when watching that film. It’s fair at best.

(4) Dana K. in PA: Thanks for the suggestion about going on that treasury site for unclaimed property!$ Rich did it and found his name. He sent the form in a few months ago and then forgot all about it. Today he got a nice government check in the mail!

Response: I just got a check, too! This suggestion works.

(5) Lisa Z. in PA: I laughed a lot while reading this blainesworld.  Great to see you the other day. Thanks ls for inviting us and for always taking the time talk with Stephen.

(6) Kathy W. in PA: How well do you know American history?

(7) 30 ways to waste your money

(8) A Call for a Low-Carb Diet That Embraces Fat

(9) Mr. Curious here: A friend, Carla J. in IN, recently told me that she had been hacked on Facebook. Others, including me, got a second request for “friend” her even though they had already been a Facebook friend. That happen to anybody else? And, if so, does anything bad happen if folks accept this second friend request?

Note: After Carla told me about this, I researched it and found out that is not really hacking—rather, it is  a matter of unscrupulous Facebook users taking publicly available profile information and reusing it for their own nefarious purposes. That said, do NOT accept a second Facebook friend request from somebody you know is already your friend. For more information, please click:

Releasing Illusions – Letting Go
Ego is very misunderstood. It is the fabric of our personality self and one that has been wounded and needs attention, healing and support.
In looking to healing the ego behavior, beliefs and actions that hurt us are very subtle. We might even notice the obvious ego parts and still tolerate them and allow them to take us off track.
A very wise teacher once said that when we are off even 3 degrees our end point is far from our goal. StraightArrow’s private and classroom work allows you to see where you are off in a loving way and helps you see the true path to freedom. Mastery teachings and practices from many traditions are offered to help you be clear, loving and healed in body, mind and spirit. All people benefit from this work as your life, relationships, work and health immediately improve. Having fun with it is the way Janet works with you. No blame or judgment only love. Learning to release the old tapes, patterns, agreements, internal dialogue and layers of illusions is accomplished directly and easily. Join Janet for a class or a session.

Transform the World – Be The Medicine – The Journey
In this newsletter I will begin to clarify the Journey to Be The Medicine and what we are all about. Thank You for your interest and I am happy to support you on your journey. Please reach out with any questions or to request classes or articles.GRATITUDE, GRACE AND LOVE. We are living in crazy times. I am grateful to live a life of curiosity, truth, joy, love and peace. I know what was meant by living in the world and not of it. All of the spiritual laws and meanings are alive in me and what I enjoy bringing to others.Be The Medicine has been a pathway guiding me for forty-seven years. My purpose was clear that it was for me to live and bring to others. I had an idea I would be teaching into my nineties but not that it would take so much time and effort for the journey to get here. I knew many of the of the teachings years ago and wrote about the many pieces. Living it through the worst of times and challenges, deepening it and opening the freedom of living it has been the amazing difficult beautiful journey. Now there is more depth, meaning and experience for me share and bring out fully.Profound acceptance and understanding and translating it for others in hundreds of classes and thousands of sessions was needed before the first book was to be published. I had to go deeper than I ever knew possible over and over again over decades in order to embody Be The Medicine. The journey never ends and yet it is perfect to move forward now and learn more as I teach, write and organize many ways to access this adventure.Look for many books to come out in 2015 and the next years to come. I am preparing several pathways and grateful to be finally ready to put the work-adventure of Be The Medicine out in many forms. As I am working on this daily. I am also seeing clients, healers, teachers, therapists and medical people and professionals who want to live fully awake. I am also teaching some classes-retreats that offer great movement and learning to those that attend.All of our focus is assisting you in achieving Self Awareness and Mastery. There are many layers and levels to move through. I am happy to assist you and look forward to the website that will support you even more later next year.As each person steps into and lives their true loving wise peaceful self the world changes in all ways.
In this newsletter I will offer a few pieces for you to explore and new classes to awaken the experience for you. Enjoy your Journey, Janet StraightArrow More On BetheMedicine website More details on

Teaching Quotes from Facebook this month to Support your Journey
“SETTING BOUNDARIES. This is a major theme this month. People are saying no to people and things they might have long before, and now enough is enough. It’s always healthy to know what is ok and what is not. We are responsible for allowing others to say, do, or act in ways that do not work for us by allowing it. This month people are saying no, and letting go, or renegotiating when appropriate.
Be gentle, kind and real.” JSA”WHEN WE TAKE CARE OF SELF, EVERYTHING FINDS ITS PROPER PLACE. Self-care is never wasted and always needed. Do not put you on the back burner or you will flame out and get lost. You deserve to be front and center. Since its your life, it works well for you to participate. Being present and paying attention to you and everyone makes your life work beautifully. A good healer-teacher-parent-partner-friend, worker and everyone is happy, healthy, aware, efficient and valued when they are taking care of themselves first. Stay awake to this, as it seems to be a natural fall back position and least helpful, to put self last when people need you the most. All problems emanate from lack of self-care. In Joy!” JSA”I CREATE. Every word we say is a Prayer of Creation into the Universal Consciousness. Pay attention to what you are creating with your thoughts and words. Focus on what your intention is to manifest in the world, and in your life. Catch yourself and change your words to what you truly want.
