The Whale…says ‘Thank You’


This was sent to my Facebook Page yesterday and it is too lovely to not share with as many people as possible.

If you read a recent front page story of the San Francisco  Chronicle, you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was  weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to  struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands  (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for  help.

Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined  that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They worked for hours with curved knives and  eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in  what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them.

Some said it was the most  incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the  rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.  And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

I pass this on to you, my friends, in the same spirit.          Gina Rene

Dr David Hamilton – Organic Chemist to International Author and Teacher on the Power of the Mind

The Mind Used in Healing Became More Interesting Than Making the Drugs to Heal Disease

In 1999 David Hamilton resigned as a chemist of cardiovascular drugs when he noticed that there was a high placebo (fake drug) effect positively affecting patients. He could not let this knowledge go and became more interested in studying the power of the mind over the making of the drugs to treat patients.

He left the pharmaceutical industry and returned to Scotland as a motivational speaker.

David currently gives talks and runs workshops in the UK and around the world.
Listen to the following recent interview with David by Lilou Mace where he explains his findings.

In 1992, David gained a first class honours degree in chemistry from the University of Strathclyde, specialising in biological and medicinal chemistry. He gained a PhD in organic chemistry in 1995 from the same University.

From 1995 until 1998 he worked as a scientist in one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies near Manchester in the UK. From 1998-1999 he worked as a change agent for the same company.

In 2005, he self-published his first book, It’s the Thought That Counts, which was published by Hay House in 2006. In 2007, Hay House published his second book, Destiny vs Free Will, and his third book, How Your Mind Can heal Your Body, was published by Hay House on 27th November 2008. It’s the Thought that Counts was released by Hay House in the USA on 1st February 2009.
