Living and Teaching Be The Medicine


In teaching people that they can reclaim their health and well-being I have learned how much we have been taught against this in countless ways. Learning to overcome the objections of limited beliefs and fears of man’s training for thousands of years has been quite the journey. Be The Medicine is to answer to how can we do this and live our wholeness and highest abilities.

Learning of the power of who we are and how to access control of our life has been quite the adventure. My purpose as StraightArrow has been to simplify the path for easy access. From the beginning, I found that I love to ask the questions and find myself guided to answers in myriad ways.

One of my favorite stories is when I wondered what the Medical profession was exploring in Spirituality and Healing. Five days later I found an invitation addressed to me in my mailbox to a Spirituality and Healing conference held by the Harvard Medical School’s Mind-Body Institute in Boston occurring a few weeks later.

Of course, I attended and enjoyed listening to the many perspectives of doctors, chaplains of various religions and psychologists and psychiatrists as they discussed spirituality and healing from their perspective. I have attended several such conferences over the years.

Be The Medicine has unfolded by being curious and asking questions and that brought me continuous answers and opened up the journey to more in quite a variety of places and ways. Each amazing discovery eventually left some missing piece and I asked for more and received it.


Teaching people to tap into their innate wisdom and knowledge has taught me as much as it has those I have taught. The beauty of being a teacher can be how much more you learn as you teach. I enjoy assisting each person to discover their unique mission and purpose and many gifts and abilities, as well as the hidden agreements and interference to be their best self.

To live, teach and assist people to Be The Medicine is my life purpose and has been my focus since a child. The journey has included higher wisdom beyond common understanding. The main problem in our world has been fear and giving control to doctors and drugs and others in all areas of life instead of a wholistic worldview of possibilities.

Our automatic training is to seek help from others when our best healing is done from within when we know how. We are the experts, we have the most knowledge about us than anyone. Learning how to access this and ask questions is the learning. We learn how to heal and then we know when to call for outside help. Expecting healing instead of more sickness makes all the difference in discovering and experiencing solutions.

There are no quick fixes or one natural method or focus to help all. There is a powerful thread of teachings, wisdom, and truths of our human nature and self-healing that assists all. We live with us 24/7 so we can access more than anyone else.

Healing is extremely complex and unique for everyone until you understand the multi-leveled truth of us as humans. Then we stay aware of what we can change or do and ask for higher wisdom and follow it. Putting all of the pieces together has been my fifty-year journey and in the end, it is quite simple.


There are many reasons for ill health and I began with physical and went into nutrition, psychology, lifestyle, yoga, meditation, and more spiritual methods of healing from East and West. I continued with over one hundred teachers and many modalities and Shamanic traditions from around the world. Shamanism and Soul knowledge helped me put the pieces together. Sorting out each tradition and discerning the highest truth and wisdom to empower us was a full-time job for a couple of years and a part-time job along the way.

Letting go of limitation and opening to the highest understanding and truth have guided me. I found there are many levels of truth that match where we are in our consciousness. As we gain in higher wisdom the truth becomes more logical, simple and clear and manifests great success.

I always find another level of understanding to open up to as I continue on my research and experience. Never bored or boring the journey continues, refines, expands and narrows again. My own challenges and how to heal them as well as those of students and clients continue to inspire new levels of solutions.

What was proven to me was that the truth of the sages I read as a teen are true for all. We are all good, perfect health, happiness, and peace. Humans have lived against our nature to follow man-made rules that tear us apart and down and believe we are limited and bad as a species.

Turning that around one person at a time is the work I do personally. Online postings and offerings and books that are on their way to publishing these next years will hopefully help millions of people wake up and take action to Be The Medicine for themselves, their community, and the world.

Learning to be the truth of who we are from highest consciousness is the way to break through lower level lies and illusions. This is the work and play of Be The Medicine. Each session and class reach for the greatest truth and love within you to manifest in all areas of your work, health, and life.

We do this with great joy as it awakens heart and soul and makes life worthwhile.

Stay tuned. Call Janet with questions or more information.
