Our Founding Vision… “I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and

died, Mr. Belser stepped in to make sure you had a man’s influence in your life,” she said.
Thanks for Your Time... It had been some time since Jack had seen the old man. College, girls, career, and life itself got in the way. In fact, Jack moved clear across the country in pursuit of his dreams. There, in the rush of his busy life, Jack had little time to think about the past and often no time to spend with his wife and son. He was working on his future, and nothing could stop him. Over the phone, his mother told him, “Mr.. Belser died last night. The funeral is Wednesday.” Memories flashed through his mind like an old newsreel as he sat quietly remembering his childhood days. “Jack, did you hear me?”
“Oh sorry, Mom. Yes, I heard you. It’s been so long since I thought of him. I’m sorry, but I honestly thought he died years ago,” Jack said. “Well, he didn’t forget you. Every time I saw him he’d ask how you were doing. He’d reminisce about the many days you spent over ‘his side of the fence’ as he put it,” Mom told him. “I loved that old house he lived in,” Jack said. “You know, Jack, after your father
“He’s the one who taught me carpentry,” he said. “I wouldn’t be in this business if it weren’t for him. He spent a lot of time teaching me things he thought were important... Mom, I’ll be there for the funeral,” Jack said. As busy as he was, he kept his word. Jack caught the next flight to his hometown. Mr. Belser’s funeral was small and uneventful. He had no children of his own, and most of his relatives had passed away. The night before he had to return home, Jack and his Mom stopped by to see the old house next door one more time. Standing in the doorway, Jack paused for a moment. It was like crossing over into another dimension, a leap through space and time.
The house was exactly as he remembered. Every step held memories. Every picture, every piece of furniture....Jack stopped suddenly. “What’s wrong, Jack?” his Mom asked. “The box is gone,” he said. “What box?” Mom asked. “There was a small gold box that he kept locked on top of his desk. I must have asked him a thousand times what was inside. All he’d ever tell me was ‘the thing I value most, ‘” Jack said. It was gone. Everything about the house was exactly how Jack remembered it, except for the box. He figured someone from the Belser family had taken it. “Now I’ll never know what was so valuable to him,” Jack said. “I better get some sleep. I have an early flight home, Mom.” It had been about two weeks since Mr. Belser died. Returning home from work one day Jack discovered a note in his mailbox. “Signature required on a package. No one at home. Please stop by the main post office within the next three days,” the note read. Early the next day Jack retrieved the package. The small box was old and looked like it had been mailed a hundred years ago. The handwriting was difficult to read, but the return address caught his attention. “Mr. Harold Belser” it read. Jack took the box out to his car and ripped open the package. There inside was the gold box and an envelope. Jack’s hands shook as he read the note inside. “Upon my death, please forward this box and its contents to Jack Bennett. It’s the thing I valued most in my life.” A small key was taped to the letter. His heart racing, as tears filling his eyes, Jack carefully unlocked the box. There inside he found a beautiful gold pocket watch.

Running his fingers slowly over the finely etched casing, he unlatched the cover.
Inside he found these words engraved:
Clairvoyant – Psychic Medium
“Jack, Thanks for your time! -Harold Belser.”
“The thing he valued most...was...my time.” Jack held the watch for a few minutes, then called his office and cleared his appointments for the next two days. “Why?” Janet, his assistant asked. “I need some time to spend with my son,” he said. “Oh, by the way, Janet...thanks for your time!” June 2012

“Happiness within” Join Nobel Peace Prize Nominee
Dr. A.T. Ariyaratne
Founder of “Sarvodaya” The largest grass-root community organization which provides Services for 15,000 villages in Sri Lanka for 53 years

One evening a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. A grandson asked his grandma what she thought about shootings at schools, computers, and things in general.. Grandma replied, “Well, let me think a minute, I was born before: television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There were no credit cards, laser beams or ball-point pens. Man had not invented pantyhose, air conditioners, dishwashers, clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air and man hadn’t even walked on the moon yet. Your Grandfather and I got married first and then lived together, every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than me, “Sir” and after I turned 25, I still called policemen and every man with a title, “Sir.” We were before gay-rights, computer-dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by good judgment and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions. Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege... We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were those who closed front doors as the evening breeze started.

Time-sharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends- not condominiums.
Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
We never heard of FM radios, tape decks, CDs, electric typewriters, yogurt, or boys wearing earrings.
“grass” was mowed,
In my day: “coke” was a cold drink, “pot” was something you cooked in and “rock music” was your grandmother’s lullaby.
We listened to Big Bands, Jack Benny, and the President’s speeches on our radios.
“Aids” were helpers in the Principal’s office, “chip” meant a piece of wood, “hardware” was found in a hardware store and “software” wasn’t even a word.
And I don’t ever remember any children blowing their brains out afterr listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk.
And we were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby.
The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam.... Pizza Hut, McDonald’s, and instant coffee were unheard of.
No wonder people call us “old or confused” and say there is a generation gap.
We had 5 &10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for 5 and 10 cents.
How old do you think I am? I bet you have this old lady in mind....you are in for a shock!
Ice-cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel.
Read on to see -- pretty scary if you think about it and pretty sad at the same time.
And if you didn’t want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and 2 postcards.
Are you ready? This woman is only 59 years old.
You could buy a new Ford Coupe for $600, but who could afford one?

Being Better There once was a farmer who grew awardwinning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair and it won a blue ribbon. One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors. “How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?” the reporter asked. “Why sir,” said the farmer, “didn’t you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn.” He is very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor’s corn also improves. So it is with our lives. Those who choose to live in peace must help their neighbors to live in peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all. The lesson for each of us is this: if we are to grow good corn, we must help our neighbors grow good corn. (It is possible to give away and become richer! It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything. Yes, men can be rich! By giving to others, he gives to himself. Proverbs 11:24-25 24 One person gives freely, yet gains even more;
Practical, spiritual teachings that empower abundant & meaningful living ● Excellent Youth Services ● Space for Rent ● Classes and Workshops ● Weddings ● Christening ● Memorial Services ● Spiritual Baptism 10

AFFIRMATIONS with Deborah: Affirmation can help you create Deeper Relationship with Self and Others I am so joyous and grateful for all of my relationships working at their highest good, all of the time. Honest, dependable, truly supportive people surround me who have my best interest at heart. We openly communicate and share in an intimate, mutual, heartfelt manner. I am entrusting my heart to the deepening of my relationships. I continue to seek a greater and expanded expression of my authentic self. I am striving and allowing for more intimacy, deeper connection, increased kindness and flowing compassion. I seek to understand others more than to be “right”. Every day I choose to forgive perceived hurts and misunderstandings from others and from myself. I let go of judgment and now replace it with unconditional love. I set healthy boundaries that are firm yet flexible for myself and others. The love I have for myself radiates outward from myself to others. It penetrates deep and wide. My self-care is nurturing, supportive of my goals and in balance with all aspects of my life. I truly love “ME” and, because of this, I am able to deeply love others. This or something better. So be it. Thank you, God! Deborah Bogle Deborah is the owner of Helping Hearts Heal. She is highly skilled and works very intuitivity with her clients.

"Life is to be lived positively, happily, healthily, harmoniously & lovingly" Baba
On Being a Healthy Dad In honor of Father’s Day, let’s talk about how to be a healthy guy. With all of the challenges in today’s world, it isn’t easy. Evidence is beginning to show that our existence on this planet is being threatened by exposure to excess estrogen and estrogen mimicking chemicals. Both males and females are affected by these dangerous hormones that are found in tap water, fast foods, health care products, cosmetics, colognes, plastic containers, and many commercial foods, especially meats. This is a huge problem because hormones must be in proper ratios for our bodies to function properly. According to Ori Hofmekler, author of The Anti-Estrogenic Diet, these unnatural estrogenic foods and chemicals in our envi-
ronment are making us “fat and sick.” They also affect our ability to think clearly. Estrogen dominance causes a myriad of problems from unstable moods, weight gain, and increased risk of cancer. Estrogen is also responsible for female traits in animals, fish and people, low sperm counts, and reduced size of male organs. Hofmekler advocates consuming foods that are either non-estrogenic or anti-estrogenic as the first line of nutritional defense against excess estrogen. The most important antiestrogenic foods and most potent plant estrogen inhibitors include cruciferous vegetables, omega-3 oils (flaxseed and hempseed), wildcaught fatty fish, and raw organic dairy products, such as butter and aged cheese. The most effective protocol to reverse the risk of cancers and other diseases including diabetes, heart disease, and
obesity is based on combining these foods with plant estrogen inhibitors, such as passion flower, chamomile flower, and cruciferous vegetables. The next line of nutritional defense he recommends is to consume foods that promote progesterone in women and testosterone in men, both of which will help balance estrogen. These include raw nuts and seeds, and other plant derived sterol rich foods, such as avocados, olives, stabilized rice germ and stabilized wheat germ, and their oils. Foods that assist with liver detoxification to neutralize the estrogenic chemicals include green vegetables, fruits (berries, pineapple, papaya), oat and barley grouts, legumes (other than soy), and spices and herbs such as turmeric, oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, milk thistle, dandelion root, ginger, & gotukola. There are so many choices when

it comes to diet. Yet, it only makes sense to feed our bodies the foods our ancestors ate for thousands of years. Since it’s important to build more muscle, we need to eat high quality proteins. Some of the best sources include organic free-range meats, and plant based proteins, such quinoa, Chia seeds, and rye. After addressing our diet, we need to start exercising. A good diet helps to give us the energy we need to exercise. Exercise builds muscle which supports structure and helps to burn excess estrogen. Epigenetic studies are beginning to show that active people don’t express the genes for degenerative diseases, making exercise one of the most important things we can do for our health. Exercise challenges our muscles and increases muscle mass, helping us become more resilient to stress and less prone to disease. Proper structure enables us to have a fully functioning nervous system; we shouldn’t forget how important it is to maintain our nervous system that sends out over three trillion nervous system signals every second throughout our body to control and coordinate its functions. Chiropractic care helps ensure proper communication and structural balance, also helps balance body’s chemistry and our hormones. No matter what someone’s weight –whether overweight, normal weight, or even underweight -a body fat percentage that’s near or over 50% puts them at risk for degenerative disease. This is why we utilize a Fat Loss Monitor in my
office to help patients monitor progress when making lifestyle changes. Men tend to have about 10% more muscle mass than women and do more heavy physical labor. While a great deal of satisfaction may be obtained from engaging in physical work, making time for recreation is just as important. I personally enjoy bicycle riding, swimming, hiking, walking and kayaking, and plan to spend more time enjoying these activities this summer. The other major male problems, erectile dysfunction[ED] and prostate are highly influenced by hormone disruption and may be positively influenced by taking good care of the body. Specific foods and herbs are beneficial but each person needs to be checked for what his body needs to achieve what he wants. Saliva testing for hormones is an accurate way to assess your free hormone balance. Guys are notorious for taking care of themselves poorly and not living as long as women. Don’t be part of that statistic. Start making your plan to live long enough and be healthy enough to enjoy your retirement.

Don’t own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire. --Wendell Berry 15
Positive Changes Are Getting Easier Spiritual things are getting easier for us at this time. With all that seems hard in the world, it is worth learning how we can take advantage of this increased ease and grace. We are currently in a period of accelerated spiritual growth which is bringing about a paradigm shift in life on earth. We call this process ascension. During this process we are experiencing an increased unity with God and with all of creation. Over the next 20 years we will actualize a significant piece of our potential as spiritual beings living in a physical world. You could compare the spiritual changes we are undergoing with those that the industrial revolution and technology have brought to our material experience. The shift we are undergoing is of that magnitude but taking place in consciousness and spirit. It will impact the material world in every way, but the influence will come from a higher and truer state of being and have infinitely more balanced and healthy results.
The ascension process you are going through at this time is a speeding up of your vibration so that your body and soul resonate more in harmony with God within you. This is activating changes in your body chemistry, your genetic makeup, and your spiritual and psychic development. You are becoming increasingly intuitive and self-aware. It is easier and easier to forgive the hurts you experience and the stress from the world and to trust that somehow everything is going to be OK. You can sense a purpose behind things and are more inclined to be patient and let go of trying to control things. You are more and more inclined to watch and see how things turn out. If you continue to try to control life by your own willpower and to make things go the way your mind assumes they should, you are likely to get pretty frustrated and stressed out. The changes that are happening are much grander than your personal plans, and yet they take into account your needs down to the smallest detail. The frustration that comes from trying to do things in the old controlling manner, is teaching you to let go and flow, and when you do, you are probably surprised to see how it is all working out just as it should. Listen to your deeper heart and your inner wisdom for the clear direction for your life. Allow life to help you find the exactly right way to go in each moment. This process may redefine your goals in a way which will ultimately bring greater fulfillment than what you had originally thought. A lot of the old judgments, fears, resentments and anger are melting away as the energy of unconditional love is increased through the ascension process. It isn’t that you never feel those negative things, you do. However they don’t seem to hold you as tightly anymore. The love that is coming into our lives builds a sense of peace and trust that would have been incomprehensible a decade ago. This trust is holding us steady inside while everything in the world is changing around us and our own bodies and souls as well. It’s a good thing that increased trust is there; we need it as we ride out all the changes. You may have been wondering why you aren’t more worried about everything, when the level of change in the world is so great. Watching those who are trying to control things out of greed, fear and jealousy, you may find their behavior to be way over the top. They haven’t realized the futility of what they are doing and so the change around them only increases their insane behavior. Don’t worry, just trust the flow of June 2012
life within you and invite God to be present with you. Their machinations won’t work anyway. The old way of being is passing away. Increasingly God consciousness is waking up within us and within the world at large. As we awaken to this truth at the core of all life forms, and especially within ourselves, we will find new ways of being and doing things that really work for us. These new ways of being will be natural and emerge out of a new wholeness and awareness of our unity with all of life. We will be telepathically able to cooperate with all life forms to create a world that supports all of us without greed, fear and selfishness. All of this will take time, but we are seeing positive change becoming easier and easier. Just 10 years from now, you will look back and see so much that has worked out better than you could have predicted and even more so in 20 years. No change is without stress, but there is good stress that brings about good changes and we are experiencing it now. Most importantly as you ascend, there is a core of loving self-awareness which grows within you that strengthens your awareness of what is right for you and what is not. You find yourself less willing to hold onto illusions about yourself and others. You become increasingly able to navigate circumstances in your life by following an inner compass that sees through the illusions to what resonates truly within your soul. Step by step you are growing into your truth and taking your power. When you give it away you will recognize it sooner. As the love within you grows, you will be able to take your power back and stand in your truth while being respectful of others and their choices which are not yours. Many of you reading this have already recognized these changes to some extent. Some of you may not yet know these things in your own experience. Keep an open mind and heart and relax into the flow of your life; you may have already changed a lot but won’t recognize it until you trust life a little bit more!

Looking and Feeling 20 Years Younger Without Surgery …I’m Amazed. Beyond Belief…☺ Diabetes gone… Everyday Dizziness gone. Night Sweats and Hot Flashes gone… Eye problems gone… Shoulder problems gone… Sugar Cravings gone… Weight problems gone… Depression gone…. This is my story, I went to see Dr. Reggish at the Reggish Holistic Wellness Clinic. I was concerned about my diabetes. My blood sugar was getting out of control and the doctors kept raising my insulin doses much too often. I was gaining weight beyond my control. I couldn’t understand why because I was eating less food. How could this be I wondered. I needed help fast. This is what brought me to Dr. Reggish. During my consultation with Dr. Reggish, the doctor asked me additional questions concerning my health. What came up during the consultation was that I was experiencing dizziness problems everyday. I told the doctor that I thought it was just old age. Doctor said that it wasn’t old age and he thought he could help me. Looking at this young doctor, I said to myself, “ He can’t possibly help me with this problem”. Wow…was I ever wrong. In one treatment, Dr. Reggish was able to stop the dizziness problem that had been going on for years. I also told him about my bad shoulder problem. I couldn’t raise my arm over my head. Dr. Reggish put my shoulder back into alignment and I immediately raised my arm over my head without experiencing any pain. I couldn’t believe I suffered everyday for months with this shoulder pain, and Dr Reggish fixed it in less than 2 minutes. We also talked about my depression issues, my weight problems and a problem with my eyes. Dr. Reg18
gish felt that these issues could be helped with a good nutritional program. Dr. Reggish took me into another room where he tested me for food allergies, toxic chemicals and toxic metals. He also tested me for immune issues, parasites, fungus and yeast. After getting the results, I knew what foods I was allergic to and what foods I could eat. We found that I had parasites and that these were affecting my whole system which included my digestion and my eyes among other things. Dr Reggish taught me how to eat healthy and it wasn’t a diet. His program was so easy to follow that anyone could do it. Well after being on his nutritional program for a week, my blood sugar dropped 50 % and I lost 5 pounds (without dieting) and my sugar cravings were gone. This was very hard to believe. I was no longer addicted to sugar. My eye problem cleared up within the week. My eyes would suddenly crisscross for a few seconds, almost daily. I’d seen many doctors concerning this, yet no one could identify the problem. Dr Reggish said that parasites cause many problems and if people only knew this, then everyone would get checked for parasites first before being treated by other means. He said that many problems clear-up when you get rid of parasites. Last but not least, my depression issues started to get better right from the first week and within 3 weeks my depression was gone. Now it’s been 2 months and I’m no longer a diabetic. I’m completely off of all diabetic medication. I’ve lost 25 pounds. I feel and look 20 years younger. I can’t believe how much energy I have. I used to walk a mile a day and my feet felt heavy when I walked, now I can almost run a mile a day. Oh, by the way I’m 78 years old, but I feel like I’m 50 yrs old. I used to feel like 90 years old. Now people think I’m 20 years younger. Thanks Dr Reggish for giving me back my health, ~ Dorothy
“I Suffered for Forty Years..” In Chronic Pain, with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia… I was bedridden for the last 15 years with no hope of living a normal life. I had chronic pain and fatigue and could hardly get up from bed to go to the bathroom. I was taking hard narcotics to stop my pain that covered my body. I was diagnosed with Severe Fibromyalgia. The doctors at Beaumont & Oakwood Hospitals said I was the worst case they had ever seen. I heard about Dr. Reggish and was told about the great successes Dr. Reggish was having with a technique he developed for Fibromyalgia and chronic pain. I went to Dr Reggish’s office for treatment. After my first treatment by Dr Reggish, I got up and to my amazement I was completely out of pain. I continued seeing Dr Reggish for further treatments and was put on his nutritional program and his parasite cleanse. I now live almost a completely normal life without the chronic fatigue and pain of Fibromyalgia. Dr Reggish gave me a new life. I never knew what real life was all about. Thanks Dr. Reggish, ~ Nancy W.

Oh God…Help Me, Please - It’s That Time of the Month.. Do you find yourself saying these words month after month, or do you know someone who says this? If you’re a woman and haven’t figured out what I’m talking about…it’s that painful Menstrual Period called PMS. Some women go month after month wishing this nightmare would go away. In my Clinic I have heard a lot of horror stories…mood swings, serious cramps, migraines, sugar cravings, depression and complications that sometimes are worse than child bearing. Then there’s the terrible heavy menstrual flow that sometimes appears, making some wish they would die. Well, I’m going to break this problem down into layman’s terms. I get patients coming into the office looking for relief and it’s not that hard to get. Let me give you an example of one patient of mine. I’m talking about one woman whose period would last two weeks a month every month. During that time she would be bedridden for five days and one of those days she would black out. She would have terrible cramps the whole time. Well, after treating her for about two months her period lasted only three days. She had a light flow and virtually no cramps… and that’s good enough to change anyone’s moods. So how do we take care of this problem? Well first we need to know that in most cases it’s a problem with the lower back area. It’s mostly the Sacral Illiac Joint. It’s the joint between the hip bone and the triangular bone that’s between both hip bones. It’s the bone that connects June 2012
to the tailbone. This triangular bone called the Sacrum has nerves coming out of it going to the female organs namely the uterus. Well, when these nerves get pinched something happens. The nerves start firing electrical impulses to the uterus and the muscles surrounding the uterus causing the muscles to cramp. The harder these nerves are pinched…the harder the muscles cramp. But there’s more to this story. That is, that all arteries travel through muscle…Why is this important? I’ll tell you why. When those muscles go into a spasm and cramp down onto the arteries…what’s happening is that the blood flow is restricted. Let me put it another way. Let’s say you’re out watering your lawn and you want to stop the water from coming out of the hose. You can stop the water two ways…one is by turning the water nozzle off and the other way is to squeeze the hose with your hand. Either way the water stops flowing. O.K. now imagine that the muscles are cramping up because the nerves are firing a tremendous amount of impulses. What happens is the blood flow is stopped and then you now have the pressure of the restricted blood and the additional cramping of the muscles. This will cause terrible muscle cramps but now the blood backs up and builds up a lot of pressure over the days and finally it breaks through those tight muscles causing the heavy of heaviest flows. Do you get it? You see it’s very logical. Just remember that all arteries travel only through muscles and it’s the pressure on these arteries that’s causing these problems. Now there’s a point I should make so that you’re not confused. Some of you out there are asking about the veins. Well, veins only travel outside the muscle …and
arteries only travel through the muscle. So veins don’t contribute to this problem. So, what has to be done is to align the hips and sacrum in their proper places so that there isn’t any pressure on the nerves. This causes the nerves to stop firing excessive impulses. The muscles then relax and the spasms stop. So you don’t have the backup of blood flow. The blood moves in and out of the area freely. Then you don’t have the cramps or the heavy menstrual flow. This alignment can be easily performed by the right doctor that is trained in manipulation. If you can’t come into our office, call us and we will refer you to a doctor that’s trained in this work. Last but not least is diet and exercise. Stay away from diet anything especially diet drinks…the chemicals can cause your muscles to go into spasms. Stay away from processed foods. They too have a lot of chemicals that can affect the muscles. My advice to you is to start eating organic foods. They don’t have the chemicals and are much more nutritious than nonorganic foods. You only need one third the amount of organics… and you’ll still get ten times the amount of nutrition. Another thing is to drink lots of spring water. You must drink at least half of your bodyweight in ounces. Well I hope this shines new light on this topic. Please start to think outside of the box. You don’t have to suffer any longer. A better life is around the corner. Dr. Michael Reggish REGGISH HOLISTIC WELLNESS Willow Wood Professional Village 31586 Schoolcraft Rd. Livonia, MI Phone: (734) 427-7110
IT’S ALL GOOD Have you been hearing the expression “It’s all good” for a while now? I first heard it spoken by a minister at Renaissance Unity at Christmas time about three years ago. I’ve been thinking about the accuracy of that expression ever since. My more human/ego nature would want to argue with the statement. Things in my life and the lives of others did not always seem so wonderful. How can everything be good when so many painful things are happening to people, to the animals, to the earth itself? Wouldn’t it be better if there was peace, prosperity, and happiness for everyone and if all of the earth’s kingdoms were treated with the greatest kindness? This beautiful planet and its inhabitants have been suffering for a long period of time. We have experienced all kinds of fear-based energies and events. People of one country, religion, or race have been taught to hate those who are different. We have felt powerless to create the lives we want, where peace, love, health, and prosperity prevail. We have stood by and watched our earth being devastated from wars, pollution, and a plundering of her resources. This has been a difficult planet on which to live, yet each of us has chosen to do so. We weren’t forced to come and go through the duality of good or evil, love or fear in this three-dimensional world. There are higher ways to live than in the third dimension and higher states of consciousness exist many places. If you’ve read this far I believe you 20
are a Light worker here at this time to help bring conditions on earth to a higher level. You have committed to incarnate in this era to help bring earth’s inhabitants to a new higher level. The earth is about to enter a Golden Age and it is through the efforts of many people all over the planet that this will happen. The end of 2012 is not the end of the world literally. Those who would scare people into thinking the earth will end this year are just trying to keep us feeling fearful and powerless. When we are fearful we have a hard time being our powerful, beautiful spiritual selves. Because of people like us all over the world, things are going to shift to better and fairer ways of life for everyone. We are taking our power back from a relatively few who been in control of things on earth for many thousands of years. We are helping create the transformation from a third dimension to a fifth, wherein all people have food, clothing, shelter, and education, along with other advantages. This will be a world where peace reigns. You may have read that that sometimes guns and bombs aren’t going off. War is over. Many people have realized that the right thing to do is always whatever serves the highest good of all concerned. There is enough for everyone and by our willingness to stand for justice and equality for all, everyone benefits. We are in for a lot of positive change this year. If you want to read encouraging, channeled messages of what to expect this year and beyond, I recommend you read The 2012 Scenario. com or Matthewbooks.com. The reason I believe in the saying “It’s all good” is because it has taken
extreme situations that seem unfair and even outrageous for us to pay attention. For example, many situations in finance, government, and law have become so preposterous that we have had to wake up and realize we have to do something different if we want things to change. The most extreme situations of greed, deceit, and corruption have served their purpose. Apparently we needed those situations to get as bad as they got in order to rouse ourselves and do something about it. Look at the Occupy movements all over the world and you will get a sense of the revolution that is upon us. Through watching and experiencing extremes of what didn’t feel fair and right, we have come to protest such unfairness. It is all good. The awakening we are experiencing is growing every moment. More and more people are realizing that things cannot go on as before and we are all contributing our energy to the shift that is underway. We are more powerful than the forces that have kept us in subjugation for so long and we are starting to realize it. Have faith that we are in for a wonderfully different world. The more we believe this, the quicker new conditions will occur. Many good things will happen this year and the cycle will continue to unfold to greater heights after 2012 as we see for ourselves what a Golden Age is like.

Bold Enough To Be Whole All violent acts toward yourself or others are from lack of selflove. Loving yourself is not selfish, but rather a courageous act of taking full accountability for your own happiness. When you know that your happiness is your choice, you no longer blame others, conditions, or circumstances for how you feel. When you don’t do what you know will help the health of your body (good food, rest, water, etc...) you are not loving yourself. When you let go of your dreams you are negating your innate worth. When you criticize another or physically attack another, it is only because you have forgotten Who You Truly Are In God. Your innocence or worth is NOT something you can earn, bargain for, or lose. If you think you must find your worth outside of you, in what you do or say, you will lose yourself. The opinions of others, or external conditions, only have the power to affect you when you have forgotten your True Self. To come back to your center, where your Divinity lives, requires you to let go of everything you think ‘makes you’ a good person. Nothing can ‘make you good’ or ‘make you bad,’ your maker has already made you. If you are trying to find your ‘goodness’ in what you do, you will never find it. The kingdom of heaven is already within. Right? When you find your ‘goodness’ in your actions, accomplishments, or good deeds, you will feel good for the moment, but it will quickly fade. Express Love or your innate goodness for the joy of feeling it move through you, as you, but not as a validation. The mind separate from Creation (egoic mind) needs rules, guidelines, and regulations. It is a radical notion to the egoic mind that you are LOVE right now. Most of your motivations for living will be challenged if you accept that you are loved as you are. Instead of being motivated by the happiness of others, what you ‘should do’, or ‘have to do’, you become motivated by compassion. Open up to accepting your inherent magnificence and you no longer need external motivators to express love. 22
Accept you are Love now, and you can be happy even when your child or partner is sad. Your happiness and open joyful heart is the greatest gift you can give. Accepting your divinity means you no longer worry about whether someone likes you. As you expand to a greater understanding of the Love you are, you no longer worry about keeping the scales even. You feel fully energized by your giving and feel fabulously open to receive. This truth sounds way too simple to the egoic mind. YOU ARE LOVE. YOU ARE INNOCENT NOW. YOU ARE ACCEPTED AS YOU ARE. Universal spiritual truths are simple, yet multi-layered. So much of your identity is based on what you do, the roles you play, your past, or the rules you follow. Fully accepting you are loved as you are, is a process. Much of the egoic mind’s perceived control is based on proving your worth in the world. Seeing the divinity in someone who has killed or harmed another starts with yourself. When you see the darkness (fear, anger, doubt, hate, etc.) within you as just a false creation of the egoic mind, you realize the darkness is not something you have to fix, attack, or make go away. Trying to make the darkness go away actually gives it the power to affect you. In gentle witnessing and self-acceptance you see that everything is Love-God. Awakening to your Divine Identity, self-realization, or expanding your consciousness could all be simply called self-acceptance. As you accept yourself as you are, you know the Love you have always been. This is not a onetime thing. As you compassionately witness your thoughts, self-sabotage, emotions, and mental attacks on others you will come to realize you are not those things. The darkness is the fertilizer to the expansion of your awareness of self as Love-Creation. It is not bad or good, it just Is. Everything within you and your world is there to show you your Divinity. Nothing is separate from the omni-present energy called God. This especially applies to your thoughts, feelings, and happenings of your life. Everyone is innocent. When you condemn another you condemn yourself. Forgiving another is forgiving yourself, because as you see their True Self you come to know yours on another level. Love heals all things, because we only harm when we are not feeling loved. Let go of the story. Forgiving others sets you free.
Loving yourself powerfully lines you up with the grandest potential in your life. Giving yourself full permission to Be Love, ignites you into living your dreams without fear of failure, and allows you to Be happy for no reason. You only fear failure when you donâ€™t know your worth. Continue to accept yourself as you are and your purpose on the planet is knownâ€Śto Be Love. Love Is, God Is, and your Beauty, Divinity, and Worth just Is. Feeling guilty, like a bad person, or not good enough, is most peopleâ€™s identity. You have been taught that accepting you are Powerful, Gifted, Intelligent, and Divine is arrogant. You have been taught you are only these things if you â€˜do the right thingsâ€™ or follow all the â€˜right rules.â€™ But you cannot be separate from who made you. No matter what you do, you remain as God-Creation made you; whole, beautiful, and loved. Barbra White Barbra White is an Amazon best selling author, spiritual mentor and self acceptance healer. Raised with natural healing and energy arts, she new at young age her purpose was to guide others into their innate magnificence. Barbraâ€™s authenticity and â€˜down to Earthâ€™ compassionate approach has helped many awaken to Love. Accepted As I Am. com 734-455-1438

Three Steps to Rapidly Accelerate Your Spiritual Development and Enhance Your Health and Well-Being The Laws of the Universe operate regardless of our belief in them. Understanding them helps us to master our life. Consider Ohm’s Law. It is a basic law of physics and its principles help you receive the benefits of electricity. Understanding its applications on an energetic level will help you know: • Why positive thinking often does not get desired results • Why results from therapies designed to move energy can be short lived • Why emotional triggers can seem like they get worse before they get better • What you can do to speed up you spiritual development and enhance your physical, mental and emotional health at the same time Resistance is Key Ohm’s Law is best described by the following equation: I=V/R where I is Power, V is Voltage and R is Resistance. Simply put, increasing the amount of voltage coming through the system is only half of the equation. You can up the voltage all you want but the voltage must overcome the resistance to make any lasting difference. If you take away the voltage, then the system returns to normal. The Size of Your Spiritual Cord Matters We are all connected to the flow of Divine Energy. This energy is accessible to us through our Spiritual Cord. In this we are all the same. But where each of us is different is in the size of the cord. The constant Source of Energy must overcome the resistance within us to be accessible to us. Our energy body is filled with energy channels, called meridians and nadi’s. This is how energy received through the spiritual cord is accessed by the body. If these channels are clogged (have high levels of resistance) then energy that is flowing to us cannot be accessed. Our spiritual cords will be small. For example, if you have a garden hose that is clogged, water will not flow. To clear the hose you could do two things: 1). Up the flow by turning up the water volume or 2). Remove the block. As you know from experience, turning up
the flow rarely moves the blockage; it is often simpler to remove the blockage. This same methodology applies to our energy body as well. Our Spiritual Development is Proportional to our Resistance Our spiritual development and the health and well-being of our body, mind and emotions is directly proportional to the resistance we offer. If you want to rapidly improve your life in these areas, then Step 1 is to set an intention to let go of your resistance. Resistance typically takes the form of holding on to our story and attachment to belief systems. These are things we allow to define ourselves. It is who the ego says we are. But the roles we play are not who we are. The mantra: “I am not my body. I am not my thoughts. I am not my emotions. I am a Spiritual Being of Divine Love and Divine Intelligence;” is very helpful to remember and use throughout your day. Do this to bring Presence when you are otherwise reactive or use it during your conscious breathing practice. How to Clear the Channels of Resistance Once firmly committed to letting go of resistance, Step 2 is to clear the energy channels of the resistance. Fortunately, all of the resistance that you experience in your life exists in an energy form within your energy body. It is literally the stuff that clogs up your energy channels and keeps you from accessing the Divine. The process is simple. For the fastest results, find an energy healing therapy that focuses on clearing resistance rather than just upping the voltage. Pranic Healing and Transformational Pranic Breathwork are two of the most powerful modalities that I know of that affects both sides of the equation. June 2012
Be Aware and Allow Step 3 is to be aware and allow. Reflect inwardly with compassion and nonjudgment. Be honest with yourself. Because you are now on the fast track, that which you have resisted may become more visible to you. This could take the form of certain feelings, memories or experiences that you may have forgotten about. Your Higher Soul has decided that it is in your highest and greatest good that you become aware. You are just getting a glimpse of what was blocking the channel. Do not be afraid but instead embrace the process. Have compassion for yourself for you are an innocent child of God. This is where conscious breathing is helpful for it easily brings you into the Peace of Presence and Awareness. It Never Fails Following these three steps allows you to access abundant supplies of Divine Energy. It was always there; you just couldn’t get it because there was too much resistance. Understanding and working with Ohm’s Law will provide you with spectacular and rapid results. It never fails as long as you are willing to let go.

The Window from which we look
A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging the wash outside. “That laundry is not very clean”, she said. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.” Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: “Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.” The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.” And so it is with life. What we see when watching others depends on the window through which we look! From Don Daughtery
Nia Trainings Discover what your body and mind can do People all around the world are practicing the Nia Technique. People come to it for all sorts of different reasons–to get in shape; because they love to dance; to find their center; because they hate the gym; to get their mind moving; you name it. And the thing about Nia is that it’s good for all of those things, which of course, was exactly what founders Debbie Rosas and Carlos AyaRosas had in mind when they created it.
of your belts is an excellent idea. Whether you are a four-times-amonth or four-times-a-week type of Nia person, the belt trainings can help you hone your skills and deepen your practice more than you can imagine. The Nia White Belt Training will open your eyes to all of the little things that you don’t have time to focus on in a one-hour class. And once you take your White Belt, Nia becomes a whole new animal. A wonderful, curious, exciting animal that you can’t wait to tangle with. Nia also offers the 52 Moves Training and the Five Stages Training that are, again, great for those who
Nia is comprised of 52 moves that draw from dance, marital arts and healing arts. They are all designed with “the body’s way” in mind. In other words, Nia leads you to move the way your body was designed to move.

One of the other exceptional components of Nia is that the practice consists of so much more than just fitness classes. Yes, you certainly can opt for classes alone and vastly improve your body, mind, and spirit in doing so. But, if you want to take it one, two, three, or more steps further, Nia has a way for practitioners to do that. Much like in the marital arts, Nia offers a series of belts from White to Black. There’s a misnomer, however, going around about these belts. Rumor has it that they are really just for people who want to teach Nia. But nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, you do need a White Belt (and a Livelihood Membership) in order to teach. And, yes, if you want to improve as a teacher, obtaining all
want to teach, but equally as good for those who want to master the technique and get as much out of Nia as they can. In a Nia Technique training you will explore physical sensation through movement, music, anatomy, science’ and philosophy. It’s a powerful opportunity to delve into the Principles of Nia, including The Joy of Movement; Awareness; The Joy of Being in Relationship; Form and Freedom; and Choice and Manifestation. In just one week, you’ll have the opportunity to transform yourself, focusing on sensation, the way the way the body works, and how we feel living and moving and dancing in it. Whether you’ve taken zero Nia classes or a thousand, training in Nia is just like training in so many other things. You can certainly do without it. But you’ll never know what you’re capable of until you explore a Nia Training for fascinating body and life education.

She speaks at conferences and other events about writing, relationships, and a range of additional topics. Jenny is also a writer and the Social Media Strategist for Nia Technique.
Things I Have Learned I’ve learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you. I’ve learned that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place. I’ve learned that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences. I’ve learned that money is a lousy way of keeping score. I’ve learned that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time. I’ve learned that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up. I’ve learned that sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel. I’ve learned that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. As does true love. I’ve learned that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have. I’ve learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve had. I’ve learned that some members of your family may not always be there for you. It may seem funny, but people you aren’t related to can take care of you and love you and teach you to trust people again. Families aren’t always biological.
I’ve learned that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that. I’ve learned that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. You still need to forgive yourself. I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief. I’ve learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become. I’ve learned that just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other, and just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do. I’ve learned that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever. I’ve learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different. I’ve learned that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt and you will hurt in the process. I’ve learned that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you. I’ve learned that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help. I’ve learned that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being. I’ve learned that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon. Author unknown yet appreciated

Chiron, The Wounded Hero In Astrology, it is a generally accepted belief that a new planetary body is discovered when the collective consciousness of the people is ready for the energy the planet represents. In the late 1970s, the western world was beginning to question traditional ideas about religion, medicine and consciousness. New thoughts abounded, ancient healing techniques and alternative medicine were introduced—and the New Age was born. The aim of this age, the Age of Aquarius, was to combine Eastern and Western spirituality and medicine with Western thought, to create a new and holistic world view, free from dogma and judgment. The self-help movement grew and encouraged individuals to draw from their own experiences to help others heal. It was within this holistic universe, that Chiron, the “wounded hero” became such an important tool for astrologers to bring healing to others. Chiron is a minor planetary body with characteristics of both comets and asteroids. It was the first of a group discovered between 1977 and 1997—now known as centaurs because of their dual characteristics. These unusual bodies are thought to have originated as Trans-Neptunian objects within the Kuiper belt that orbits outside Neptune’s path. Astronomers believe that the stronger gravitational pulls of Saturn and Uranus caused these little “planetoids” to move to their current locations between the two larger planets, where they continue to orbit. Chiron, known to astrologers as the “wounded hero,” represents the individual’s early trauma—a trauma that remains difficult to heal. Chiron’s elliptical orbit falls between the orbits of the last of the archetypal personal planets— Saturn, and the first of the transpersonal planets—Uranus, signifying the new holism and connection between self and community. The lesson of Chiron is to fulfill one’s ultimate potential by first healing self, then using the knowledge gained to help others to heal. How the individual accomplishes this and the nature of the original wound is suggested by Chiron’s position in the birth chart. This energy is similar to that described by Carl Jung in his description of the relationship between the analyst and the analysand. Chiron has an orbit of approximately 49 years, so the Chiron return—the point at which a planet returns to the exact position it was at the time of the individual’s birth—coincides with the approach of the 50th year, a time when the individual is beginning to move towards the path to individuation, a feat Jung suggests is impossible to be accomplished by the young. The planetoid, Chiron, is named after the mythical Greek figure, Chiron, son of Kronus/Saturn and the wood-nymph
Philyra. It is said that Kronus, son of Uranus and his sister/ wife Gaia—the sky and earth—was searching for one of his sons to eat. Kronus, the devouring father and unfaithful husband, came upon Philrya, who thwarted his advances by turning herself into a mare. Not to be dismissed, Kronus became a stallion so he could mate with the unsuspecting Philyra—and a son, Chiron, was born. When Philrya saw her son, a centaur—half man and half horse—she rejected him. However, Chiron used the lessons learned from being abandoned by both mother and father— his earlier wounding—to become a great teacher, healer and prophet—unlike most centaurs who were known for their lustful pursuits and insatiable sexual appetites. The immortal Chiron soon became a mentor to Hercules, Jason, Achilles, and Aesclepius—the great healer and teacher, who founded the famed mystery school and place of healing at Epidaurus. However, one day, Chiron was accidentally wounded by Hercules’ arrow—poisoned with the blood of the monster, Hydra, as he had been taught to do by Chiron—leaving Chiron with a wound that would not heal. About the same time, Prometheus was punished by Zeus for stealing fire from the gods to give to the mortals. Zeus had Prometheus chained to a rock where an eagle came each day to eat out his liver, and each night the liver grew back—leaving Prometheus in eternal agony. The immortal Chiron, who was also suffering from a wound that would not heal, decided to sacrifice himself for Prometheus. Chiron’s selfless act, freed Prometheus from eternal torture, so he could continue to serve the human race. However, Chiron’s sacrifice caused him to lose his status as an immortal, so he died in the service of another—and ultimately for the entire human race, as did Jesus Christ. Astrologers look to Chiron’s position in the birth chart for the individual’s greatest challenge—the original wound. However, if the pain is too strong, or the individual too weak to experience the pain necessary to heal the wound, then the individual may turn to alcohol, drugs or sex. But when the individual faces the original pain and heals it, then he or she can use the knowledge to help others. By Liz Jelinek
The MIDWEST INSTITUTE FOR SYSTEMIC CONSTELLATIONS Was established by Liz Jelinek, as a training center for Constellations Facilitators—and to make this amazing process available to the public. Training programs will be offered for professionals, as well as regular workshops for everyone. According to Jelinek, who has over 25 years of experience as a psychotherapist and healer, Systemic Family Constellations can help individuals to resolve issues they have spent years in traditional therapeutic settings working on, but still have unfinished business. Jelinek points out that every individual is part of a larger system, and many people carry “soul memories” from the ancestors that cause them to repeat the same dysfunctional behaviors over and over. Systemic Family Constellations can heal these entanglements. Family Constellations were created in Germany by psychotherapist and former priest Bert Hellinger, and have spread around the globe. MWI is one of the first to offer training for professionals in the Midwest. Gary Stuart of Constellations Healing Institute in Los Angeles will be offering a training program for facilitators July 27-29, and the general public are also invited. CEUs will be available for most licensed healthcare and mental health providers. Contact Liz for further information or register at www. lizjelinek.com. Group and student discounts available.

Staying Smart Currently, Alzheimer’s affects one person every 72 seconds. Cognitive decline in this country is as high as 50% at age 80. Brain decay often starts between the ages of 40 and 50. Yet University of Virginia research shows that the very initial stages can actually be detected as early as age 37. People think that being “forgetful” is just a part of getting older, but it is a sign of brain decay. Look for these symptoms, but don’t wait to take action. Be proactive. It is critical to keep the mind sharp and memories intact as aging occurs when these symptoms are present: Slow recall
Withdrawal from activities
Difficulty completing tasks
Problems recalling words
Confusion with time or place
Low mental energy
Changes in mood and personality
The brain is over 85% water. In Dr. Batmanghelidj’s The Body’s Many Cries for Water, he explains how dehydration plays a major role in cognitive function. Chronic dehydration is a condition in which there is not enough water on the inside of your body cells. It has its own symptoms, which are either ignored or covered up with either food or drugs. A few examples of dehydration signals and the wrong remedy are: craving sweets → sugar

Water must get inside the cells for the body to be hydrated. Less water in the cells of the body directly lowers energy, causing fatigue and brain fog. For every 1% decrease of water inside the cells, cellular energy production is reduced by 10%. The brain is shrunken and dehydrated in a person with dementia, as viewed on a CT scan. People without dementia have normal-appearing brains. Drink at least half your body’s weight in ounces to keep the body hydrated. The body loses half its body weight in ounces daily through perspiration and elimination, which must be replaced. Live water has an abundance of anti-oxidants, and a greater hydration ability. Check out super-hydrating live water to make it easier to drink the
right amount of water for improved brain function. Diet is also important. Avoid aging foods like sugar and trans fats. There are also specific nutrients that play a key role in prevention according to The Stop Aging Now Institute, an authority on cognitive health. CoQ10, DHA, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Curcumin work together to provide maximum protection against brain decay. A deficiency of CoQ10 can lead to sluggish thinking and memory decline. People with high levels of CoQ10 have better mental acuity, motor abilities and mental energy. Supplementation is vital, as the ability to produce CoQ10 naturally declines with aging, and when statin drugs are used. DHA, an omega-3 essential fatty acid is critical to optimal brain function. Cells lose the ability to absorb DHA with aging, Change your health Change your life Trying to Do it All? Living With Pain? THERE IS HELP!

compromising brain function. Alpha Lipoic Acid is an extremely powerful antioxidant compound that offers protection from agerelated memory decline and strokes. Supplementation of these is key to healthy brain function for all ages. Curcumin has been shown to stop the build-up of brain plaque by up to 50%. Take supplemental curcumin, or learn to cook with tumeric. Berries have powerful antiinflammatory, antioxidant and anticlotting properties that help protect the brain from oxidative stress, and the effects of aging. The brain should age well. It should be as sharp and smart as when it was young. I see many patients in their 70s, 80s, and 90s who are smart, vibrant, active, and productive people because they take the necessary steps to keep their brain thinking smart, and they follow their customized diet and lifestyle programs to stay young.

The Irish Priest
HEALING ENERGY FOR YOU
An Irish priest was transferred to Texas ... Father O’Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Texas mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside.
Spiritual healing for Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual well being
He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the local police station...... The conversation went like this:
Jule’s practice, “Healing Energy for You”, involves helping her clients move through many forms of physical or emotional pain, energetic imbalances or spiritual disturbances.
‘’Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?’’ ‘’And the best of the day te yerself.. This is Father O’Malley at St. Ann’s Catholic Church. There’s a jackass lying dead in me front lawn “ Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, ‘’Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!’’
There was dead silence on the line for a moment........................................... Father O’Malley then replied: ‘Aye, ‘tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin.’’

Each of us is Shining Light Ever notice how we hold ourselves back from our own magnificence? We perform some service. Someone says “thank you” and we are liable to brush it off and respond with something like, “Oh, it’s nothing.” Or, how about the demure and non-threatening downward gaze and mumble about what’s wrong with what you’ve done? How you look? Or the boss that praises your work, and the response being silence, or withdrawal? And then the next assignment handed in poorly or late? What about that great job offer we just don’t return the call for in a timely manner? or the mortgage acceptance papers not signed on time? How we just tend to not get what we want. When we wonder why the world is not giving us our desires, perhaps it is because we ourselves don’t allow

them to occur. We are given the branch of opportunity and don’t take it. Usually out of the habit of false modesty. From a young age, our parents, teachers, and society in general, teach us to be “safe” by not being noticed. We are taught that the world is a dangerous place, so we hide. We are even sometimes taught that others will be jealous of our gifts and tear us down if we allow our magnificence to shine. Patterns like these are programmed into our subconscious memories... what I like to call our “biocomputer.” These are programs initially imprinted as survival techniques. Ever notice how young children are often labeled “fearless”? They are still connected to Source/God and know they are safe. Being surrounded by parents and society’s vibration of fear, we lose that connection, and therefore, that fearlessness. We adopt our parent’s programs and they aren’t even aware of it, as we are not, and we start living as sleepwalkers, just responding and losing our connection and know of the divine. As we mature, we outgrow these old programs, yet they are so ingrained that we no longer recognize why we react “instinctively” the way we do. Eventually, we feel empty, afraid, and realize there is a lack somehow, and start investigating how to change. We start waking up. We usually start by recognizing poor patterns/habits. As we recognize these programs/habits, we can wake up and change them. We are able to allow ourselves to re-connect with Source/God and know we
are safe to let go of these programs. Often, the first step to awakening is realizing how we are not receiving what we’ve been told we would if we were modest and held ourselves back from shining forth. Or, we get the great job, and can’t enjoy it because we feel we really don’t deserve it. We really aren’t worth that salary. We find everything wrong with what we do, what we look like, who we love, and who we are. And wonder what’s wrong. We should be happy! When we allow that connection with Source/God, we are given the knowing and the strength to wake up and look at those old patterns. We start recognizing the flow of divine knowing and are able to be proud and love ourselves for who we are. We start re-programming ourselves with who we want to be in a fearless world. Knowing we are spirit having a physical experience, and as we grow in connection, are able to bring this divine energy into every aspect of our lives. We are, each of us, a shining, divine light on our own. When we don’t stand up and let our light be seen, we don’t allow Source’s work to be recognized, let alone ourselves. We are perfect and magnificently divine already. We just have to wake up to that fact. Wake up and know that we are love, and are loved just as we are.

A Perspective from Carole Lynn…
So, maybe the budget this summer doesn’t allow for a road trip? How about a project or two around the house? Clearing out, cleaning up and enhancing your physical space can be an effective, helpful strategy for living a balanced life in a busy world.
Take a Trip, Clean Up, Clear Out... Strategies for Living a Balanced Life in a Busy World Well, here we are in the lovely month of June! The school year is coming to a close and summer vacation for most kids is right around the corner. Whether you have the luxury of planning your vacation during the summer months to rest, relax and revitalize with your family; or recall those lazy days of summer when you were young…the reminiscence of summer’s past or anticipation of summer 2012 can bring about a smile and as well as the opportunity for personal growth. Reflecting back on all the summer trips I took with my parents and sister still brings a smile to my face and a feeling of joy and gratitude for all those family adventures! The people I met and the places I visited enriched and enhanced my view of the world and my sense of self. I couldn’t wait to come home and share with my cousins and friends all the interesting places we had seen and things we did. Even at a young age I knew that our family summer adventure had shifted my view and perspective of the world in a positive way. Your Strategy for Summer 2012 is simple…take a trip! Whether you plan a long or short excursion, the experience will refresh, revitalize and shift your energy and perspective on life. You’ll return home ready to take on everyday life with a new sense of self and vitality.
I recall during the winter months my parent’s would plan not only our summer vacation but summer projects around the house…clean-up, decorate, paint or landscape. Not only did we have fun (helping my Dad paint or garden), but we all felt a sense of accomplishment. The house looked great and felt fresh and new. It doesn’t matter where you live or how big or little your space is. When you shift and release the “stuff” in your space you create a fresh, peaceful environment to live in. When you live in a peaceful, calm, organized space, you nurture and support the vibration of living a noncluttered life. The peaceful, balanced energy of your physical space actually refreshes and supports your energetic vibration. So whether you take a trip to shift your energy and nurture a new perspective on life, or shift your physical space by clearing out and getting organized; you send a message to the universe that you are ready for new and wonderful outcomes to manifest and support your life path journey. So get going…take a trip, clean up, clear out and make room for you. You’ll feel great and be happier for it…Many Blessings!

“The term chalcedony is derived from the name of the ancient Greek town Chalkedon in Asia Minor, in modern English usually spelled Chalcedon, today the Kadıköy district of Istanbul. At least three varieties of chalcedony were used in the Jewish High Priest’s Breastplate. (Moses’ brother Aaron wore the Breastplate, with inscribed gems representing the twelve tribes of Israel). The Breastplate included jasper, chrysoprase and sardonyx, and there is some debate as to whether other agates were also used.” (Excepted from Wikipedia) Chalcedony promotes a strong sense of brotherhood and good will, used by many Native Americans for this purpose as well as sight in meditation. It brings the mind, body, emotions and spirit into harmony. Chalcedony instills feelings of benevolence and generosity, alleviating hostility and transforms melancholy into joy. Absorbs and dissipates negative thoughts, emotions and bad dreams. Perfect for magnifying its crystal energy in grids or use when charging crystal elixirs to soothe and restore balance, from the conscious busy mind to the sweet inner child. It is an excellent assistant for those who are worry laden people, by encouraging life in the present instead of manifesting
and projecting into an imaginary future. Chalcedony is known as the Speaker’s Stone, the stone of one who must measure his words. It encourages reflection and meditation, its gentle radiance preparing us for action but helping to hold back words we might regret. Blue Chalcedony is specific to the throat chakra and is excellent for public speakers, life coaches, psychologists and those who speak for a living. Actors or performers might rub it against their throat, while singers may drink a glass of water in which rutilated Chalcedony has soaked for an hour before going on stage. Wearing this crystal around the solar plexus can help overcome self doubt or stage fright while wearing it around the neck helps the fear of public speaking. Chalcedony is most useful for treating chronic hoarseness and inflammation of the throat. Chalcedony also improves mineral assimilation and combats mineral buildup in veins. It increases physical energy and has been well known to help heal the eyes for centuries, and assist gallbladder, bones, spleen, blood and circulatory system. Blue Chalcedony helps an afflicted person’s over sensitivity (such as fibromyalgia and glaucoma) caused by weather changes or pressure, and stimulates milk production in nursing mothers. June 2012
It helps alleviate plant allergies, hay fever, and other respiratory problems, aids in their treatment and helps lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia, childhood illnesses, gallstones and inflammation, and may soothe the symptoms of autism and Asperger’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, bi-polar and obsessive compulsive disorders. There are other stones that are part of the Chalcedony family. Certain banded varieties of Chalcedony are known as Agate. Flat layered banded varieties of Chalcedony are known as Onyx. Different varieties of Chalcedony include: • Agate • Bloodstone • Blue Lace Agate • Botswana Agate • Carnelian • Dendritic Agate • Moss Agate • Onyx • Orbicular Jasper / Ocean Jasper • Petrified Wood • Sardonyx • Tiger Eye Carol Clarke is an USUI Reiki Master and Melody certified TAOMCHI Master Crystologist in Plymouth, MI.

Meditate on material possessions and money habits. For Leos, sometimes acquiring “fancy stuff” can be used to fill in spiritual emptiness. It’s great to love fine things and treat yourself well, but balance it with the same regal regard for your soul!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
– Happy birthday Gemini! Jupiter, the planet of abundance, happiness and new opportunities is entering your sign for a 12 month stay! You might be starting a new job, relationship, or hobby. You could make exciting changes to your appearance. These shifts symbolize an expansion of consciousness, so nothing is insignificant at this time. Also, start (or continue!) a meditation practice. You’ll connect with your intuition very easily and get lots of guidance.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) – It’s important for you not to feel alone. You are always connected with the Universe! Ask for guidance in your dreams, and in your meditations. You’ll feel like you are embraced by the Divine Mother, or part of a loving spiritual family. Let go of critical, judgmental people who make you feel isolated and hurt. You deserve to feel loved and appreciated! Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) – Examine your goals and see what changes you can make to be even happier. Seek out friends on a spiritual path who walk their talk.
Astrology for Your Soul Aluna Michaels, M.A. Esoteric Astrologer
“Together we will unveil your Life Plan and Soul’s Purpose.” Over 20 years of counseling experience.
– Wow! You’re entering a year of amazing career success! You can get a promotion, a new job, or go back to school for a brand new direction. You’ll be brimming over with confidence, whatever happens! You’re going to ask more out of relationships. You’ll need partners to meet higher spiritual, ethical and emotional standards. You’re also done taking care of others, so they’ll need their own inner strength! Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) – Meditation and spiritual seeking brings lots of exciting results! You’ll feel connected on a deep level, which is so important for Libra. You’re always in a partnership with spiritual energy, but sometimes you feel it stronger, like now! You’ll also have insights into problems about health or diet (like discovering a food allergy) – taking action will give breakthroughs! It’s a great time to start yoga or tai chi. You’ll also have opportunities for travel that will be fun, and will also open your heart in new ways. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) – Jupiter is the planet of abundance, openness and spirituality. This month it’s helping you rebuild and increase your ability to trust and bond. You’ll be able to overcome long term blocks to intimacy. You could also receive surprising amounts of money that help you with debt, or you’ll be able
to fulfill a dream that seemed out of reach. Be open and let the Universe flow through you and wash your heart clean! Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) – You could be starting an amazing new relationship! It’s important to connect with people who are on a spiritual path, or who blend with your ethics. You’re drawing a true partnership on every level! Meditate to forgive and release any family issues that become “baggage” when you’re bonded. Then you can see your partner more clearly. If already linked, you’ll have a renaissance in your bond that will renew your love! Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) – You work so hard; you can nearly run yourself into the ground! Use your meditation time to truly listen to your body. Fatigue means you need rest, not that you’re a lazy loser! Honor and respect your body by enjoying healthy food, adequate sleep and breaks, massages, yoga classes, laughter. You’ll get more done when you’re “tuned up” in this way. Ask your spouse or a good friend to make sure you’re being gentle with yourself. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) – Jupiter is the planet of playfulness, joy, abundance and travel. It’s going to bring you lots of fun over this month, and even through the next 12 months! Relationships that begin now will be easy and feel like you’ve known each other before. If partnered, you’ll feel a renewed sense of enjoyment and passion together. It’s a great time to get a pet, or spend time with pets. And if you want to have a baby, there’s no better time than now! Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – Meditation will help you release negative self-esteem, fears, and June 2012
obsessions that keep you from enjoying life and from seeing how wonderful you are! No matter how longstanding your “issues”, they can be healed with persistent spiritual energy and forgiveness. Be kind to yourself by cleaning your home and office. Toss out old junk! Keep stuff neat! You’ll feel more self worth. Also, if you need to move, or buy a home, this is a great time for it! Aries (March 21 – April 19) – Life is getting very fun and exciting! Please enjoy yourself, yet also stick with your meditation practice. You need to remain centered in order to keep the good times going! Your intuition wants to guide you so you don’t waste energy on dead-end projects or relationships. Also, your soul knows there are even greater levels of good in store for you. Don’t stay stuck at this rung of the ladder when there’s even more to open up to. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) – You’ll have a major boost in finances! Maybe you’re finally realizing your own inner worth, and that is being mirrored “in real life” by your outer worth increasing. Make sure you are surrounding yourself with people who truly appreciate you. Get rid of those who take advantage of your gentle spirit, or those who drain you! Make your life “richer” by being with “spiritual wealthy” friends.
Genuis Quotes Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen. Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value. Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invaribly they are both disappointed. Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former. Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling. The only reason people get lost in thought is because it’s unfamiliar territory. The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.
The Car Keys Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal pat down. I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the room revealed nothing. Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My wife has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them. Her theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion. Her theory was right. The parking lot was empty. I immediately called the police. Confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen. Then I made the most difficult call of all, “Honey,” I stammered; I always call her “honey” in times like these. “I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen.” There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice, she barked, “I dropped you off!” Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, “Well, come and get me.” She retorted, “As soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car.” Yep the golden years.

Asking Your Spiritual Allies Many books and articles tend to put an emphasis on how working with the spirits or in a shamanic context can be a powerful tool for developing internal awareness and the advancement of the consciousness. While this is a worthy and needed goal, I think it’s easy to overlook some of the tasks of the shaman of old. The shaman was the bridge between the spirits and the material world, and was called on to use their influence over the spirits to gain things like a bountiful harvest and successful hunting. The village could live or die by the skills and the strength of the allies the shaman had. I would hope that in our modern lives our situation is not so dire, but the truth is when it comes to matters like employment, health, income and the safety and security of the home, our shamanic skills can be as important as ever. It is important to identify spirits that are available and can help you in the areas where you need help. The process of developing spiritual allies can be long but does not need to be complex. Like developing a friendship, your spiritual allies want a relationship that is enjoyable and beneficial for you and for them. They want to get to know you, and want you to understand them, their needs and their goals. When my wife and I decided to open our store, I turned to local spirits to help us find an ideal location. I knew the part of town I wanted to be in, what our budget required and the feel we wanted, but there was nothing available at the time. Running through our city is one of the longer rivers in Michigan 44
and our home was near the headwaters, so this was an obvious choice. The other may be a bit more surprising. The Michigan Theatre is the oldest theater in our city, a very gothic and ornamental structure right downtown. Just because something is manmade does not mean it cannot develop a large amount of power and become a spiritual ally. In the case of the theater, over the years it has come to be called, ‘The Gal on Mechanic’ which is symbolic not only of the fondness the people have for it, but it has also become an authentic and powerful spirit. To develop this relationship one needs to simply sit quietly in a meditative state and use the sense that comes most naturally, be it intuition, hearing or vision to form connections to that spirit. The river had swirls and patterns in the movement of the water which I could use as a sigil to connect to the river. I could use the noise of the moving water to hear sounds which I could translate into words. The theater had a nickname, combined with knowledge of the time frame it was built, and quickly formed in my minds eye the image of a woman of the time. Using these visualizations I was able to express my needs, and hear and understand what these spirits wanted in reciprocity for my request. Like all friends you can only ask so many times before they come to resent. Make sure that when you ask you offer in turn, and make it a habit of offering gifts even when you do not have anything to ask for. I should also note that I never rely on these communications alone when I am communicating with a spirit ally. I always make sure to
ask another intuitive person, or use a divination tool like a pendulum or tarot cards to confirm that I have understood their answers and the reciprocity gifts correctly. The things asked for were simple and easy to acquire; candles, tobacco, candy, brandy, and other small items. As a rule, I never offer blood or items from my body even if they are asked for, as that would give the spirit a measure of control over me. After sitting and communicating with these spirits, I was sure I had understood the exchange correctly and was ready to move forward. The results in our case were amazing, the kind of results you cannot say were just chance. A space became available that was the perfect size, a great price, and more amazing a block from the river and on the same block as the theater itself. Spirits surround us all the time. Find and recognize the spirits in the rivers, trees, hills, buildings, statues and monuments that are willing to work with you, and gain a powerful ally for your life’s needs, just like the shaman since the dawn of time.

What is a Medium? Many of you have seen the show “Medium” about the adventures of a regular housewife and mother who works for a D.A. office helping solve crimes by spirits contacting her from the other side. Though some of the show is based on a true medium who resides in the western United States, many of the stories are written to keep the story line exciting. So what really is a medium and how does it work? A medium is someone who has the ability to contact and communicate with spirits of the deceased. A channeled message can be from a high level guide, angel or spirit. A medium communicates with those beings that lived on the earth plane and lived a physical experience here. Mediums receive the information in a variety of ways, it can come audibly like a voice or clear thought, it can come clairvoyantly like a picture or image, but the result is the same, a feeling of connection for those on the physical plan to those on the other side. As a medium, I have found that sometimes this connection can be extremely clear and sometimes Laura Ginn
I also believe that I have a moral responsibility to those I read to give information as I receive it. Sometimes information given may seem trite or not necessarily what the receiver thought they would hear once they connected. Often, I will get information on the relationship when that being was twenty – fifty years younger, sometimes it is information regarding the last twenty-four hours of that person’s life. Sometimes, I receive information from pets that are deceased. They usually come in images and pictures to communicate
For those seeking a reading from a medium, stay positive and stay open. I suggest tape recording or writing down the message for review. Often we are so surprised by information given that we forget most of it. A recording will help you to review the message at a later time.
Readings: for parties, events and fundraisers. Accurate (confidential) readings on love, career, family, finances & soul purpose. Events: Retreats & Sacred Trips. firstname.lastname@example.org www.readingsbylaura.net

YOGA & SPIRITUAL Psychic Clairvoyant, RETREAT
love to their masters. I have never received a message that was harsh or negative from a deceased loved one. Sometimes there are apologies, sometimes words of encouragement, and sometimes direct information like “sell my car!. “ When I access information from the other side it feels different then my psychic ability, the feeling is different. Medium’s can be just as confused as the main character Allison on the television show, in that we don’t know positively if we are getting the message exactly or is it getting muddled in the connection. Mostly, the work of a medium is rewarding and those that receive the message leave hopeful and happy that they connected with their loved one from the other side.
Psychic Clairvoyant, Medium, Pet Psychic Offering:
similar to a cell phone, the connection can be fragmented and distant. Most of the time, when a message comes though it is when I am conducting a reading and a deceased loved one wishes to communicate with a person who is still here in the physical world. Many times the information is concise so that the person I am reading is given information that I would by normal means have no way of knowing anything about. So what is my responsibility as a medium to those that I read? My responsibility is to stay “in tune” to my angels and spirit guides and keep the channel clear for those beings who wish to connect to people on this earth.

You Don’t Need To Live In Pain! Medical Marijuana is Safe-Legal-Natural-and it Works. You don’t have to live with pain anymore! Wake up from the fog induced, prescription drug cycle of dependency and depression. You now have holistic alternatives to the heavy sedation of prescription drugs. Return to your family, you’re loved ones, your friends and get back into the game of life. Medical Marijuana is now available for professionals just like you who can’t afford to work while impaired. They want natural remedies for their symptoms. Don’t let pain beat you into submission. You still have a lot to offer, you can get back on top of your game. Depressed? Have you hit bottom?
