White Supremacy and Slavery vs Abolitionism and Freedom of Slaves in the USA is Featured in MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS


White Supremacy fueled the start of the Civil War in the United States of America. The human ideal of the Union States of the North that people did not own people, won the war with the Confederate States of the rebel South who had years of slave holding heritage. During these years, the Underground Railroad was alive and well in the greater Sturbridge, Worcester, Northampton, area.

The Underground Railroad began in 1780. By the time reflected in the living museum at Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, 1830’s, the safe houses, called stations, were well traveled by Harriet Tubman and her soon to be freed former slaves.

Although slavery was not legal in the northern states, if a southern slave owner came looking for his runaway slaves, there was a penalty for people of the North who helped the fugitive slaves escape, since slavery was legal in the south.

Meet Harriet Tubman who led the way for over 300 former slaves; and Harriet Beecher Stowe who was so upset by the idea that people owned people and treated them unfairly, that she wrote about “Eliza,” based on a slave girl she had met.

Read about former Presidents Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Van Buren, the Battle of 1812, and the Seminole Indian Tribe at the time in Spanish Florida.

Meet Robert Carter III, a wealthy and prominent member of the planter class in Virginia, who owned hundreds of slaves going back to 1791. Carter had a change of heart and later released many slaves as freed men and women. He was so wealthy that President Jackson borrowed money from him, and President George Washington’s nephew proposed to Carter’s daughter.

Former President Jimmy Carter is a descendant of Robert Carter III, who was also known as King.  Carter III descended from William Strother, on his father’s side. Everyone at that time knew Carter III was descended from English royalty, going back to Charlemagne and William the Conqueror, and many other English kings. Presidents Zachary Taylor and John Tyler were also defended from Strother. President Jimmy Carter is also related to President Barack Obama. They are eighth cousins.

History has a way of repeating itself when we do not take heed of the lessons of the past.

This is a must read for people of all ages. This is a book based on accurate history, ancient history and Bible history. It is available in softcover at $13.00, and as an EBook at $3.99. http://www.iuniverse.com/Bookstore/BookSearchResults.aspx?Search=Mystery%20of%20the%20Sturbridge%20Keys

MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS is currently under revision to more accurately reflect Bible, Ancient and Pre-History. It is an amazing insight, a modern DNA-like discovery of how Noah’s sons re-populate the world through the empires. In the process, the mystery of where the Christmas traditions originate is discovered. This book is a must read for anyone interested in accurate history and Bible history. MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS, subtitled, CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, is expected to be re-released this spring. It will be worth the wait.


Your Mind ~ Body ~ Spirit Health Tripod


This is my ten year anniversary of serving the world as a holistic health counselor/practitioner, which

Does your mental, physical or spiritual health look like this?
Does your mental, physical or spiritual health look like this?

includes mental, physical and spiritual health. This is a lifelong, international certification. Although retired, I continue my work through this blog to touch everyone’s life, wherever you are, in every situation you find yourself. I view mind, body, spirit healing like a tripod. Without health in all three areas, “the tripod” (your life), falls apart, or is tilted one way or another.

My work is person centered rather than technically oriented, and focuses on phychological health, Bibles-based consciousness, human possibilities, and challenges of body, mind and spiritual development. We are created with a mind, a body and a spirit. We need to take care of all three to be fully human. It is irresponsible to only take care of any one of these dimensions of ourselves, while ignoring the other two. It is also irresponsible and short sighted to only take care of two of these dimensions, while simultaneously denying the other aspect of ourselves, as if we can live with out it, mentally, physically or spiritually.

We can’t, successfully anyway. Questions still remain about that which we are denying, and they keep cropping up.

Sometimes we like to live in denial. We do not like pain. We try to avoid it. We look for short cuts. That’s understandable. What tends to happen, though, with the area we are suppressing, is that the part of life we are denying, keeps popping back up, like trying to hold a submerged beach ball under the water, popping up when we least expect it. And don’t you know it, our mental health, or our physical health, or our spiritual health issue keeps calling four our attention until we address it, one way or another. Denying it, or lying to ourselves does not make it go away. Denying truth makes the truth scream all the louder.

Other times, we think we have a great understanding of ourselves. Then we get a new piece of information which changes things, or our viewpoint. This discovery matters. Pay attention, even if we previously thought we had all the answers.

While denying issues with our mental and physical health does happen, today it happens on a grander scale in our spiritual journey. There are so many false religious notions out there. The placebos just are not the same as the solid spiritual food found in the Bible. It is only after we have tried all the more enticing New Age or other spiritual thoughts, that we find they do not even hold a candle to the truth found in the Bible, the most popular book bought, every year.

Following the advice found in the Bible will not only bring spiritual health back in line, it will often bring the mental and physical health back in line as well. This is an amazing puzzle piece that restores character development, self esteem, and positive thinking when we realize just how very loved we truly are. When we trust in God instead of ourselves, stress gets diminished, resulting in less migraine headaches, less ulcers, less panic attacks, and whatever else ails us mentally or physically. Don’t trade the truth for a lie.

In this life we are not promised to live forever. I have never met, nor heard of anyone who has lived forever, mentally, physically or spiritually. But while we are here, it is good to re-connect, re-align or re-affirm our relation with the good God who made us and everything else, using the Bible as our backbone. That way, we have a firm foundation from which we can build our personal mental, physical, spiritual tripod, and enjoy life to the fullest while we are here.
