Hawaii is a state of United States comprising an archipelago of the Hawaiian Islands in the central Pacific Ocean. The erstwhile known as the Sandwich Islands, the Hawaiian Islands became the U.S. territory in 1900. The Hawaiian Islands include eight major islands including Nihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lānai, Kahoolawe, Maui and the Island of Hawaii and many islets.
A British explorer, Captain James Cook, discovered the Hawaiian Islands and named them as 'the Sandwich Islands'. The Hawaiian Islands were united for the first time under a single ruler, King Kamehameha the Great.
Hawaii became the 50th state of United States in 1959. The state of hawaii is also known as "the Aloha State". Aloha is acknowledgment that can be used as greeting. The state is the southernmost part of that country, situated 2500 miles from the mainland. HI is the abbreviation of Hawaii. Honolulu is the capital and the largest city of the state. Hawaiian and English are the official languages of the state.
Tourism is one of the cornerstones of Hawaiian economy. The tourism is the largest industry in Hawaii. Hawaii is sometimes called "the paradise of the Pacific" because of its exquisite beauty including abundant sunshine, lush green plants & gay flowers, palm-fringed, coral beaches with rolling white surf, and mesmerizing cloud-covered volcanic peaks rising to majestic heights.
The hawaii vacations, hawaii cruises and hawaii vacation packages are the hottest tourism deals. The hawaii beach vacation, hawaii honeymoon vacation, romantic hawaii vacation, hawaii family vacation and hawaii golf vacation are the most coveted vacation. The hawaii hotels are sheer manifestations of romantic luxuries.
The major attractions of hawaii include Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail, Haleakala National Park, Haleakala Wilderness, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Hawaii Volcanoes Wilderness, Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, Honolulu Engineer District Pacific Regional Visitor Center (PRVC), James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge, Kalaupapa National Historical Park, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, Kona Historical Society, Lyman Museum and Mission House, Northwestern Hawaiian Islands Coral Reef Ecosystem Reserve, Oahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge, Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge, Pu`uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, U S S Arizona Memorial, Pearl Harbor, Akaka Falls, Na Pali Coast, Satellite Image etc.
Na Leo o Hawaii means "the Voice of Hawaii" - and Na Leo o Hawaii Community Television is a non-profit program that is open to anyone who lives on the Big Island. They have a video production class once a month that teaches you how to make videos, and once you complete two public service announcement videos for them, you're a certified producer and are able to borrow camera equipment for free as long as you submit at least one 15 minute video every three months. The class costs $100 and the first course is offered for free to see if you like it.
I'm hoping to help our community speak out about anything & everything and I have up to two hours on Cable Channel 53 (Oceanic Time Warner) to play with. I'm looking for interesting show ideas and/or people to help highlight the many things happening around our island. I'm also looking for a small production crew (extra camera-person, editor, etc.) to work with. Message me if you would like to be a part of the new team.
I have my list of production ideas that I've been working on...but if you have one that you feel I can help with, please email or text me or leave a comment here on this post and I'll get back to you shortly. Aloha!
Zach Royer, C.L.P.I., O.M.
Zach is an independent researcher, healer, author, explorer and director of Hawaii's premier anomalous research organization, Kahuna Research Group, where he has spent the last five years at the forefront of exploring Hawaii's secrets & mysteries, and also making medicines with the plethora of Hawaiian herbs. His work has been featured on the Travel Channel, in the Journal of Anomalous Sciences, as well as in numerous travel magazines and on many different websites over the last few years.
On this episode he shares with Claire, Jason and Sandra the benefits of using herbal tinctures and how to make them yourself in just four simple steps.
Step 1) Place your fresh/dried herb of choice inside a glass mason jar approximately 3/4 full. (Your herbs will compact once liquid is added so you may be able to add more)
Step 2) Add alcohol to jar until almost full. Leave room to be able to shake. (Vodka is ideal for it's nearly odorless and extracts both alcohol and water soluble compounds.) Seal the jar with lid and store in a cool place.
Step 3) Shake your jar(s) daily anywhere from two weeks to 6 months. Longer=Stronger.
Step 4) After at least two weeks, you can bottle your extract and start using it. Using any kitchen strainer or new nylon stocking you can separate alcohol from herb at which point you are ready to bottle it.
Bottles: I found the local co-op (Island Naturals on Hawaii Island) to have perfect 2oz. & 4oz. dropper bottles which you can see in the video.

On the next episode I will be taking a trip to a healing energy vortex that I wrote about in the book "Hawaii Vortex Field Guide" and talking about the healing aspects of these sacred sites. Stay tuned and please subscribe!

A video introduction to the Hawaii Vortex Field Guide by Zach Royer.
This is a quick introductory video for my book Hawaii Vortex Field Guide, available online and locally on the Big Island, now in its second edition.
The Hawaii vortex field guide is your guide to 12 mysterious vortexes that are found on Hawai'i Island, giving you the chance to connect with these sites on your next visit to paradise.
Many vortexes have been shown to be associated with the World Grid and have been found to be extremely strong at nodal points where the grid lines cross. Worldwide, the Great Pyramid in Egypt and Stonehenge in England are perhaps the most well known sites of vortex activity.
Because Hawai'i as a whole is known to be a spiritual power spot, a vortex site here is a place where one can feel Hawai'i's spiritual energy, or mana, most strongly.
