Here is why you can learn about Ecuador in the USA.


Many years ago when Merri and I first moved to Ecuador we lived with this Yatchak and he showed us how we could help fulfill our purpose of helping others through a concentric system with an outer, inner and center circle.

“Begin in the USA.” he said.  “#1: Teach about Ecuador from the USA… #2: Bring people to Ecuador as the second circle.  #3: Bring them to the shamans on a sacred journey for the third circle”.

Use the reality of“As above, So below”.

We immediately created a system of courses in the USA, Ecuador and tours with Ecuador shamans.

We also began looking for land in the US that contained similar energies to Ecuador and bought our farm in North Carolina.  We have been improving it for the last 15 years as part of the first meeting place for Ecuador.

This idea of “As above, So below” works in many ways.  Food is an example.  When I had a bad fall (in a marble bathroom in Quito) and suffered brain injuries, the shamans recommended that I eat many walnuts. They believe that walnuts are good brain food and explained the elders knew this because walnuts look like a brain.


So when this note was sent to me, I thought it worth passing along.

What we see provides great clues as to what foods help what part of our body!

Our vision provides us clues to God’s Pharmacy.

Sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look like the human kidneys.

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives look like and assist the health and function of the ovaries.

Avocados, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.

Oranges, Grapefruit, and other citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body’s cells. Today’s research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

So keep this idea in mind when thinking about health or wealth.   Look more deeply at what you see and think about “As above…So below”.

We can use the “As above – So below” logic to learn about land as well.

Merri and I love the natural beauty of our North Carolina farm and how nature teaches us lessons about making our process of earning a part of a joyful lifestyle… in the summer.

Now as winter approaches, we are on the road migrating south for the season just like so many of our ancestors have done in generations past.  Here are some autumnal shots of the farm and a couple of lessons that Mother Nature here has whispered in the chilly winds to us. I hope these whisperings will make your life better too.

Little Horse Creek Autumn entrance

Welcome to the farm.


This old barn gave me some great insights about utility.


This was the entrance and the barn when we bought the farm (plus a half burned out house on the right). “These are all tear downs” everyone said.  We did not think so and have turned this units into a wonderful rentals.  The lesson is “Don’t judge a book by its cover!” 

You can often find value in things everyone else wants to throw away. Always look for value .    

Here are some shots coming…


from the lower creek up to the to the cottage.   We did not know we had a series of lovely water falls when we bought the farm. The land had been unoccupied for 15 years.  Right-of-way trimmers had chopped down big trees.  Blackberries… thorns and bramble had filled in the space… covering even the gentle creek’s murmur.  What a joyful surprise when we began to clear.  

The lesson is to expect joyful surprises when you get on the right track!

The cottage is another lesson in looking for value. This was also a tear down many said.  They reduced the value of the porerty when we negotiated the price.  Roof was caved in … walls rotted… ten layers of old linoleum on the floor…. front porch sagging… siding missing.


This charming cottage increases the property’s value now.


Some roofing tin… plaster…


paint… stucco and lots of energy and imagination, plus…


landscaping and it’s a valuable asset now.

Little Horse Creek

Then we head up the road past the big rock that juts out onto the road.

That big rock provides a lesson.  Nothing big can get past it like cement trucks for example. When we built a house with 80,000 pounds of cement in the walls that was a little frustration.  Yet we love the looks of that rock so we worked around it. Now every day when we take our walk… we really enjoy from the sight of the big rock. The lesson is that each of us needs to feel what gives us  energy and let those feelings lead our paths.   Take what others say we enjoy and what is practical with a grain of salt.  

No one who is practical as defined by the lifestyle merchants of Madison Avenue would live up here on this farm.


Then we reach the house meadow where…


you see the horse barn tucked up in the woods as you…

past the pond and …

see the house ahead.


The house has a medium range view.   That’s the one above all on the farm we chose.   We can head up to the higher meadows for the…

Little Horse Creek view

long range views.  We go there from time to time… but the lesson we learned is to be settled and immersed in the here and now, flavored just once in awhile with long term planning.   Being narrow minded shuts down creativity… but looking too far ahead too often also disconnects us from accomplishing our purpose which is “one step at a time”.  Integrating the mind and the heart… the big picture with the day to day routines and tasks helps move us along.

Such great beauty… this time of year, but…

what’s next is…

this view that is coming so we enjoyed our ride yesterday to Florida and to the sun….Ecuador of course IS the Land of the Sun! 

This is perhaps the biggest lesson we can recall during this time of change… when so many feel despair… the sun always shines somewhere.   We look forward to sharing ideas on how to prosper during this era of change so we can all feel sunny times together… everywhere.
