And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and

We actively quoted Margaret Mead: ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful people can change the world, and we chose to make a change by creating jobs in our little corner of Michigan. We wanted to start a tsunami of hope and recovery in our little bakery, one biscotti at a time.” They were also determined to “get people talking about the importance of natural and organic December 2013

foods and the issues with pesticides, GMO’s, and synthetic additives.” Katherine says, “We are deeply connected to healing and nourishing our world at all levels by creating each biscotti, cupcake, brownie and muffin with a singular intention to make people happy and engage them in awareness of food supply and environmental issues that intimately impact every being on our planet.” Can Motor City Biscotti save our world?

Touching Souls on Winter Solstice My richest memories of Winter Solstice and the holiday season are of a natureoriented tradition I adapted from a Waldorf School ceremony. It became a favorite annual activity, shared with other families, many of whom had different religious or cultural traditions for this season. Our older children loved it too! I’m now an empty nester with only you to share my favorite seasonal pastime with. That’s all right; these memories are so nourishing, they will sustain me until grandchildren! Meanwhile, perhaps I can inspire you to create beautiful memories with your children and grandchildren too. Winter Solstice is the longest night of the year; and when the world is dark and cold, we may find our own inner light can shine more brightly. This is an important metaphor for handling any challenging seasons of our soul and our

world. So when creating a ceremony for this season, I used candles to remind the children of their own inner light; they shine so beautifully in the dark. Winter Solstice occurs on Saturday December 21st this year, at 12:11PM, so you could celebrate on Friday night but Saturday would work too. We learned at the Detroit Waldorf School to make swinging candle holders from sturdy found sticks, connected by wire to the necks of small jars, then covered with torn patches of colored tissue paper stuck on with Elmer’s glue. Into these we placed tea candles to create a beautiful soft glowing lantern light. We asked everyone to bring their own jar and one person brought sticks and wire. Someone brought pine cones with yarn hoops for hanging, to roll in peanut butter and bird seed as gifts for the wild birds and animals. While the children were making their candle holders and pine cone feeders, we sang holiday songs that the children knew from

their family traditions, as well as some musical rounds, which were fun. Into this easy atmosphere I would introduce the idea of winter solstice and how when the night is long, we can seek the light within our own hearts and let it grow. We’d also talk about evergreen trees and how they stay alive and green all winter and even warm the earth enough to melt snow, providing a place for the birds and animals when it is cold. Depending on the group, I might talk about the birth of Christ or stories from other traditions for this season. We had lit candles and a fire in the hearth, and the smell of warming spiced apple cider which we would enjoy before we left the house. The first two years, my daughter was very young, so I oriented the celebration to small children, but three families had 10-13 yr. old boys that also came and participated with great enthusiasm and happy hearts. It was such a privilege to share this with them! It felt very joyful

Healing Ascension Treatments Bring Body and Life Into Harmony


and sacred; all of our souls were touched. In those first years, we would get our warm clothes on, turn off the lights and light our swinging lantern candles. We would be a glowing snake of lanterns walking around our ½ acre yard to a big evergreen tree in the back where we hung the pine cones on the branches. We surrounded the tree and each called out our love and wishes or prayers for the birds, animals and trees to have plenty to eat this winter. When the children wanted to sing to the tree, we let them pick songs that fit their mood. Then we snaked our swinging lights back around the yard and re-entered the warm, dimly lit house to cozy smells of wood fire and hot spiced cider; it felt magical. We’d finish with holiday treats from various traditions that people brought, eating in satisfied, happy company. As the children matured we ventured further afield, asking the local nature center to open their gates for us after dark. We’d scout ahead of time to determine the tree and the location we’d be trekking to through the night. It was a joy and an adventure to be out together walking in the dark but familiar woods. We’d bring candles with foil wrapped around the base to catch drips and light them when we got to our tree. Walking back through the dark we’d stop to eat our treats and warm drinks sitting in the outdoor theater. One Solstice we went to a beautiful county park during the afternoon for a hike and together chose a huge old evergreen to adorn with our pine cones and other treats for the wildlife. The older children still enjoyed wishing the natural world a good winter season and thanking the evergreen for staying green and alive all season long, as well as acknowledging their own inner light. Whether with children, alone, or with adult friends, I find it powerfully life-affirming to celebrate Winter Solstice. Even if you turn off the lights and light a candle alone, this simple act can fill a soul with hope, remembering that the darker the night, the farther your light can be seen in the distance. Each one of us is a light in the world, the presence of the One within many individuals. We are all sacred. The flame of a candle is a reminder of that pure presence within us; and the evergreen, like ourselves, stays awake and alive all winter making the world a nicer place to be. My prayer for you is the same as it is for the creatures of the natural world -- I hope you have plenty to eat and a warm place to be this winter. I give thanks that you are in the world, just being yourself; letting your light shine through the winter dark.

The Gospel Tree There once was a shining Christmas tree Standing out where all could see. Its brilliance captured every eye And seemed to cheer each passer by “The lights are so bright,” they would say And hesitate to walk away. The tree stood proud ablaze with light For every light was burning bright. Then one bulb was heard to say “I’m tired of burning night and day; I think I’ll just go out and take a rest For I’m too tired to do my best; Besides I am so very small I doubt if I’d be missed at all.” Then a child lovingly touched the light, “Look, mother, this one shines so very bright.” I think of all the lights upon the tree This one looks the best to me.” “Oh my goodness,” said the light “I almost dimmed right out of sight. I thought perhaps no one would care If I failed to shine my share.” With that a glorious brilliance came For every light had felt the same. Our Gospel, like this Christmas tree, With little lights which are you and me, We each have a space that we must fill With love, and lessons and good will. Let’s keep our tree ablaze with light, With testimonies burning bright. For our Gospel is a living tree That lights the way to eternity.

Saint Theresa’s prayer: May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us. 10

Season Greetings From Your Loved Ones! Is this time of year hard on you? Are you missing those loved ones who have crossed over, missing the presence they had in your life? I want you to know that your loved ones still love you, watch over you and are listening to you when you talk with them. I often feel my Mom around me, and it always makes me smile knowing she is with me. She was an amazing woman who raised 11 children, God bless her! She gave up a career as a ballerina and devoted her life to her family. She always did her best for everyone. She was my hero and I do miss her physical presence but am thankful for her spiritual presence in my life. Many times I’ve wished I had done things differently, like being a better child. Even as an adult I was not and am not perfect. Thankfully, I always had that love from her, and for her. I know many people can relate with the feeling of not doing enough. I know my Mother would not want me to feel that way. I know that Spirits in general want their loved ones to be happy. Oftentimes, people come to me because they feel as though they should have done more or said something, or said something differently; or just feel that they messed up in some way. The answer from their loved ones is always of love with no bad feelings or grudges. Even though your loved ones are not here in the physical form, they are still with you. If you sit quietly YOU can feel their presence and their love for you. Let that love fill you, let it fill every cell in your body and resonate outward. You may feel like you are making it up; just trust in what you are getting. Remember the smile, the laugh and the joy they brought with them. What were some of their favorite things to do? Have you ever felt as though a loved one has visited you in a dream and it seemed very real, but how can that be possible? Sometimes our loved ones come to us in our dreams and we think it was just a dream. Spirits visit us in dreams because our conscious mind is sleeping, and the sensors we have up when we are awake are not blocking the information. Know that they will always be there for you even if you don’t see them; they still love and care about you. May your Holidays be blessed, may your spirits be bright and may you always feel the love of those that have crossed over!

Carole treats this work as sacred and seeks only the best for those who come to her for readings, energy work and instruction. She will tell you what she is seeing, feeling and hearing. www.

WATER TO WINE A Parish priest is driving down to New Orleans from Alexandria and gets stopped for speeding. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, ‘Sir, have you been drinking?’ ‘Just water,’ says the priest. The trooper says, ‘Then why do I smell wine?’ The priest looks at the bottle and says, ‘Good Lord! He’s done it again!’ Body Mind Spirit Guide |

Holiday Conversations of a Higher Nature This is a remarkable time of year, celebrated throughout the world as an experience of light in the darkness. The Christmas holiday was set at this time of year as an accommodation to the pagan religions. The pagan religions celebrated this time of year as an acknowledgment of the end of darkness at the winter solstice. It was a time of renewal for each new day, henceforth, brings more and more light. The Christian Christmas holiday acknowledges and celebrates the birth of the light bringer, Jesus Christ. A month earlier in November, the Hindu religion celebrated Diwali, the Festival of Lights, which symbolizes the victory of good over evil. Are you beginning to see a pattern? When you look at religion from the viewpoint of absolute truth, there are many similarities. These holidays are a perfect blending to bring us to this powerful time of year when the entire planet at some point celebrates the light. All religions acknowledge the darkness and the light. The darkness is our ignorance. It is the veil that sets us apart from who we truly are. We cannot truly know who we are until we have an experience of that. It is easy for me to tell you that you are love incarnate, that you are a spiritual being having a physical experience in a physical body. But what does that mean? What does it mean to be love? Only through experience can you know that. And how do we move to the experiences that bring us evermore into the light? Listen to the soul, a simple December 2013

thing but also one of the hardest things to do. Many do not listen. Some listen but do not hear. Few listen and hear. Such will bring you joy, such will evolve your soul in a joyous manner without the pain and suffering that most of humanity endures. But to hear the soul you must pause from your daily routine, you must quiet your mind of its 50-70,000 thoughts per day. Such is not difficult. You simply must provide the time and make it so. This holiday season my wish for you is that you find time to connect deeply with your soul. Have an experience of connection with that part of you that you may have been ignoring. There are many simple and powerful techniques to do that which we will reveal in the upcoming months. But for now, just be. Let the light of the soul shine brightly within you. Others will see their Self within you. Your actions will become a reflection of your state of being. This is the way of the master. You will find the true meaning of the season within a conversation with your Higher Soul. This will bring you more light and love which is what this holiday season is all about. It will give more meaning to your holiday than you ever thought possible and joy will be yours now and forever. Happy Holidays everyone!

Instead, cut a straight line down its length and fit it around a roll of opened wrapping paper. It’ll keep the paper rolled up tight and ready to use for that next time. ~ Emma Yardley P a g e 11


Turn Your Face to the Sun... One day ten years ago, newly on my own with three small children, no real income and a lot of angst, I came across a beautiful page in a magazine. It was so compelling to me that I tore out the page and taped it to my kitchen cupboard where it remained until I moved from that house 8 years later. Filling the page was a photograph of a woman in a bikini, facing the shore of the ocean with her arms spread wide and her face tilted toward the sun, her shadow visible on the sand behind her. At the very bottom of the page were printed the words,

“Turn your face to the sun, and the shadows fall behind you. Maori proverb.” This simple truth stunned me. And that day it became a mantra for navigating my life. Recently, I received a note in my inbox from Robert, a man who had heard me speak these words two years ago in a speech I gave, and he now wanted to know the origin of the phrase. He expressed his gratitude, and related to me that his attention to these words had brought such profound positive shifts in his own life that he had been passing the phrase on to friends, who were also finding it to be a powerful change agent. It’s such a deceptively simple statement - Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you - yet it holds the most profound wisdom. Today it feels to

me like a good friend, a gentle reminder to keep turning myself toward the light no matter how difficult circumstances may appear to be. So many times I notice myself resisting this choice to look for the light, as if I need some affirmation that my problems are real and should upset me. But as I have practiced through the years and developed my “turn your face to the sun” muscles, it has become easier to want to make this choice, every time. It’s like eating food that brings me health - the more I eat food that loves me back, the more my body and mind wants more of this good feeling. I often suggest to my clients that they ask themselves the question, “What level of health do I want to create for myself?” Another great question to ask yourself is, “How good do I want to feel?” In both cases, our resistance to choosing the highest path for our good may be an indication of our fear of stepping into our divine power, and a belief

that we are not capable or do not deserve to live fully in the light, and in our vibrance potential. On a retreat I led in Costa Rica our group climbed to the top of a waterfall where there was an opportunity to jump off a 30 foot high cliff into a deep pool below. One participant, a woman who was a world-placed Jiu Jitsu master and built like an Amazon, was nevertheless afraid of heights and terrified to take the plunge. She waited until the others had safely jumped, and then through her tears she said clearly, “I’m changing my story!” and she jumped. In this pivotal moment she made a decision to turn toward the sun, to tune into what she really wanted and to feel her courage. Her fear fell behind her like a shadow, and she was now energized instead of limited by it.

When we consistently visualize what we most want, and live from our dream instead of from the difficulty of our current circumstances, we free up energy that can change us and change the world. Just like going to the gym to build the muscles on our body, or showing up every day on our yoga mat, inspired living is a daily practice. It’s a daily practice of listening, deeply, for what has positive energy for us. One of my favorite authors, Tama Kieves, says it this way: “Your desire is the integrity of your Spirit. When you follow what lights you up, you become Light.” Another helpful quote is, “Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.” I invite you to consciously focus on this powerfully simple mantra I offer here: “Turn your face to the sun,” and watch the Law of Attraction at work. I would love to hear of the transformation this brings in your life. Ellen Livingston, Life Coach and Yoga Instructor, leads popular annual transformational health retreats in sunny Costa Rica.

Operation Prayer Power – Science, Spirituality and Global Healing – Part 4 We’re pleased to continue this series on the global healing mission, Operation Prayer Power which is on the cutting edge of science and spirituality. It is a fantastic example of the joining together of prayer, the power of mantra, spirituality and technology and was invented by Yoga Master, the late Dr. George King, Founder of The Aetherius Society. This is held each week at only five locations in the world. There are two locations in England, two in the U.S.A. – including one right here in Royal Oak, Michigan, and one in New Zealand. At these Aetherius Society centers, men and women of all ages and religious beliefs join together to participate in weekly Operation Prayer Power Charging Sessions. These sessions are open to everyone to observe. If you wish to participate, we take you through an introductory initiatory class in which certain mantras are given that you can then use in Operation Prayer Power, and indeed all your spiritual practices. You would then join together with others reciting mantra through which beautiful spiritual energy is invoked. The mantra team members are like a choir who, through their chanting of the mantras, form a mushroom of powerful, healing energy. This in turn helps to inspire the highly-trained prayer team members in their task of radiating powerful love energy through their prayers. This high frequency energy of “love”, far more powerful even than electricity, is directed by the prayer team members who use mystic mudras and the beautiful, soulful prayers of The Twelve Blessings. This life-giving energy is then collected and stored for later release to global disasters of every kind as well as to strategic situations such as peace talks. These charging sessions continue week after week, gradually charging each battery with over one thousand prayer hours of spiritual energy. Not only have we had the opportunity to really help our world through participating in Operation Prayer Power, but, through our diligent participation and chanting of mantra together, we are helped in our own advancement. As Dr. King taught: “By practicing mantra diligently, you will cleanse your mind, your aura and your psychic centers. You will improve your concentration! You will improve your control over the flow of energies through your body.” One of the greatest tests on the spiritual path is to build, through enduring spiritual practice, discipline and con-

The Perfect Gift! This holiday season, how much time will you spend trying to find the perfect gift for someone? No matter what gift you find – whether it’s big or small, handmade or store bought – remember that the true power of your gift has more to do with the energy and intention behind it than the actual gift. Have you ever thought about searching for a perfect gift for yourself? If so, would you look for something that could help you become happier as well as helping the people you love become happier? Is there actually something that could do that? Absolutely! The gift I have in mind has the potential to positively affect your life along with the lives of so many others, including family members, co-workers, neighbors, and everyone you meet in your travels throughout life. If you’ve been reading my articles or are one of my patients, you may already know what I’m talking about. Yes, I’m talking about the gift of health – a gift that everyone should give to themselves and cherish! Few people realize just how important their health is – at least not until they’re in danger of losing it. I’m going to tell you about someone I knew a long time ago that could have avoided tragedy if he had done something to improve his health sooner. I became friends with a fellow that came from a very poor beginning who worked as a machine operator at a factory. After learning how to repair the machines, he worked extra hours, saved money, and bought the old machines when they were replaced. Setting up the machines in his garage, he began working on them in the evening and on weekends, making and selling parts for them. There was such a large market for these parts that it didn’t impact his employer. With his ethics aligned to help him prosper, he built a small factory of his own which 16

expanded to a large facility. This is how he became a multi-millionaire. Although this man was a terrific boss and a wonderful person, he had many habits that were self-defeating. I watched his health deteriorate while he smoked, ate poorly, and worked at a feverish pace. Despite warnings that he was headed for a heart attack if he didn’t take better care of himself, he didn’t make any changes. After suffering his first heart attack, he continued to ignore his poor health. Although he was lucky that this heart attack wasn’t fatal, since approximately 50% of all first heart attacks are fatal, it took two other heart attacks for him to begin listening to me and start to change some of his habits. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for him to return to his unhealthy habits before having a fourth heart attack. After this one, he could no longer do the things he loved, including traveling to his beautiful vacation home. Not long afterwards, he passed away much too young. I hope this man’s story will help give you more incentive to do whatever is necessary for you to maintain or improve your health. But before thinking it’s going to be easy, do you remember what I said about the true power of a gift? It will take time, energy, intention, and perseverance to develop healthier habits, but the reward is your health! When first starting out on your healthy mission, it’s helpful to prioritize the steps involved. From my experience, I know that neurologic control is the highest priority. Neurologic control is another way of saying that your head needs to be connected to your body for proper functioning. If there’s interference in the nerve pathways or a lack of connection between your brain, nervous system, organs, and other parts of your body, nothing in your body will work properly. Although the necessity of an optimally

functioning nervous system to maintain health had been theorized for years, the art, science, and philosophy of Chiropractic didn’t formally begin until 1895. Throughout the years, chiropractic care has continued to help people stay healthy and in good repair without the use of drugs or surgery despite many challenging problems. Another way of helping the body repair and rebuild itself is by eating whole, natural, unaltered foods on a daily basis. A Paleolithic Diet consisting primarily of the same foods our ancestors ate works well for the majority of people since food requirements have remained the same for approximately 40,000 years. To experience optimal health, we should also include supplements derived from whole, organic foods. These can also help to keep our hormones balanced. Since most of the food available today, even organic, doesn’t contain the nutritional content it once did due to chemical based farming methods that have damaged the land, whole food supplements are used to fill in missing nutrients. Another component to good health is detoxification. I like to compare detoxification to taking out the garbage because otherwise this garbage would make your house smell awful. Your body also needs ways to remove garbage. Drinking a proper amount of clean unaltered water, eating food like cilantro to clean out heavy metals, getting fresh air, and undertaking a proper cleansing program are a few ways to help your body detoxify. There are many more ways to detoxify but remember to enlist the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional before undertaking a detoxification program because it can be dangerous if done improperly. Exercise is also vitally important. As a gift to patients as well as those interested in improving their health, we

“Normal” is just a button on a washing machine At this time of the winter solstice, nature experiences an energy of slowing down, going inward, and shedding of old skins - like deaths in preparation for rebirth. This is reflected in us as well, yet sometimes we meet this natural tendency with resistance, or feel so overwhelmed with activity and stresses that we don’t even realize we need to slow down. As I sank into some inward time recently, I realized that much of my life now is structured very differently than 15, 10, or even 5 years ago! The way I naturally experience my life now, the way I create it, is so vastly different than before that I often forget that at one time I didn’t even realize it was possible! And so as I hear clients and other people remark about frustrations they have in their own lives, often in 3rd person generalizations…things like “well you know, all men out there are…” or “everyone is stressed out and rushed, that’s normal” or “no I wasn’t abused, but I did experience, you know, the ‘normal’ spankings and verbal attacks of childhood” or “you can’t just leave your job…” I would like to offer a new way of seeing it - a sample of a possible reality, a portion of my story. And share that it didn’t all happen easily or overnight, it was progression of waking up, seeing things a new way, making mistakes and trying again, feeling the differences in my body as I explored new ways of being. So let me share a few things that I used to consider “normal”, or even necessary, that are no longer a regular part of my life:

Diet Coke (or other artificial beverages) – in high school I drank the stuff like crazy; I quit a year or two into college, and suddenly headaches I had experienced regularly went away. Over time, other artificial foods and substances that no longer resonate for me have dropped away as well. Bar Scene – I thought the only form of recreation and meeting people was hanging out with alcohol and “friends”. Sure it was great for numbing out, but once the drinking stopped I realized how “sensory-overloading” the places are. Sports on TV’s, music, loud conversations, aggressive behaviors, heavy food, smoke (or at least in those days) -- so overwhelming to the senses…that is, when I finally started to feel my senses again. TV and associated media bombardment - I realized the TV was on when no one was even in the room. Or, it would be on with people in the room and no one watching it. So, I turned it off. At first it was hard… it was so QUIET! Wow, silence. Suddenly I had to start listening to the voices in my head that I had been drowning out for so long. Sitting at a Desk – I sat at a desk all through school, college, and 15 years of corporate engineering. We in the west just assume we must sit in chairs and position tables or desks in front of us to eat or work. I began sitting cross-legged, meditation style, on a zafu (cushion filled with buck wheat hulls, designed for meditation) years ago to explore meditation and yoga. I realized after I left corporate life that I enjoyed sitting that way so much more than in a chair. So I created a workstation for my laptop which positions it in front of me at arm level, while seated on a zafu on the floor. This is how I spend the computer portion of my “work day” now! I feel so far removed from some of these things that often they don’t even cross my mind in the realm of possible options anymore, sort of like a whole new baseline of what is “normal” in my world and that of my closest friends. Sometimes I forget they exist. I feel healthier, happier and more connected to my body than I have ever felt. Does that seem possible?! Yes, it is! So if you feel stuck, how can you begin to make the shifts that feel good for you? How do you even know what feels good from a place of authentic self? (Note this can be very different than the messages from your wounded self that often throws in some curve balls like “oh yes, eating chocolate covered marshmallows all day long sounds like it would feel soooo good!”) Here are a few things that have been pivotal for me: Journaling Get a journal and a pen and start writing! Streams of consciousness at first -- just dump out all the thoughts in your head. No need to write with any grammar or spelling perfection, or even sentence structure. Just let the thoughts pour out.

The book, “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron was one of my big inspirations for this. I was resistant at first…I remember thinking, ”I’m not a writer”. I recall at one point in my early days of journaling, literally writing the words “blah, blah, blah, I don’t feel like writing right now, I don’t know what I should be writing, blah, blah, blah….” And within a few more lines, emotions, thoughts and important areas of awareness in my life began pouring onto the pages. The key was giving it a chance, actually doing it daily to create the new pattern. Years later, I still journal regularly as an integral part of my life and how I process self-growth. What and how it works for me has changed in many beautiful ways and it all began with simply putting pen to paper! Meditation Just slow down enough to notice 5 breaths. Sit quietly, remove distractions (silence phones, turn down lights, find a comfy way to support your body while remaining alert; an erect seated position works well for this if you can get comfy in it…knees below hips helps keep the back happy) and notice your breathing. See if you can count 5 breaths, each inhale, each exhale, and just notice what it feels like to breathe. If after those first 5 breaths it still feels good to explore what might open up, stay seated and continue. If after those first 5 breaths it feels like you are done, then get up and continue with your day. Slowing down like this gives us a chance to actually notice the messages that may be bombarding us to get our attention, but we’re operating in such an accelerated state we never knew they were there. So if you feel a flood of thoughts…take this chance to journal! Capture the ones you are worried you’ll forget about and make a to-do list, etc. Notice the ones that don’t need your attention and let them float on. And notice if some come in that you are resisting; write them down, see them, witness them. Give them the honor of being seen, even if you don’t like it. And then notice if some space opens up to just BE in the moment. Often our mind just needs some reassurance that you’ve got things captured, so you can let go of the reins a little bit and relax.

time I was an endurance athlete who had experienced many overuse injuries) to improve flexibility and strengthen the small balancing muscles in my body. What I experienced over the last 15 years in my practice was a shift in awareness to the spirituality of yoga, the life philosophy of yoga. What began as “what poses can I do?” has grown into “what can I learn about myself from the poses?” My yoga practice has helped me discover more about who I really am, because of the awareness it’s brought me about the messages of my body and breath. Consider this…there is no “normal”! “Normal” is just a button on a washing machine. The only people who are “normal” are the ones you don’t know very well. YOU get to define your life, you don’t have to force yourself into any boxes that society wants to create for you. Rewrite your script, repattern the old limiting beliefs that lead you into thinking they are the only way. You have the power to choose! Decide if anything I’ve suggested here resonates for you and if so, go for it! And no need to beat yourself up if it feels like there’s too much to tackle at once! Go slow, take your time, start noticing your life and your patterns and see if there are ways to make small changes right now that will shift your trajectory over time. It doesn’t have to match my list, I only offer it here as a possible reality. Notice what your list is. And while it all doesn’t have to happen overnight… Yes, it CAN BEGIN right now! What do you feel stuck with because you assume it’s “normal”? What do you choose to change?

Yoga Yoga, or at a minimum a form of movement where you are also noticing your breath and your body, is also important. Mindful, intentional movement and flow is very different than disconnecting from your body and forcing yourself to “exercise” because you “should” (hmm….reading a magazine on the stationary bike--sound familiar to anyone? Yes, I have to admit, it does to me!). Yoga is about union, finding and connecting with opposite energies in the body to integrate and find balance. I was drawn to yoga initially for the physical benefits (at the December 2013

Three Different Women… With Different Problems… With One Common Solution… I came to be tested by Dr. Reggish because I couldn’t lose weight. I’ve been overweight for my whole life and have tried many programs, only to spend a lot of money, and not lose anything. A friend referred me to Dr. Reggish and the rest is history. For $45 he tested me for food allergies and told me what foods I was allergic to and to avoid. He found a lot of toxic metals and toxic chemicals and gave me some herbs to help pull those out. But the biggest surprise was I had worms. That’s right live worms or parasites. After taking the herbs, one day I started seeing the worms. I could see them in the toilet. I’ve done parasite cleanses before, but nothing worked this good. It’s been 6 weeks now and I’ve lost an amazing 49 lbs. Dr. Reggish said the parasites will eat the good foods and leave the fats. I can’t believe I’m not on any diet and the weight is falling off. God Bless you Dr. Reggish. P.S. I live in Bay City and it’s worth the 1 ½ hour drive to see Dr. Reggish. Oh by the way, my friend who referred me to see Dr Reggish also lives in Bay City. ~Serena P., Bay City I was reading an article that Dr. Reggish was doing nutritional testing for only $45 and at the time that I was reading the article, my left ear was itching. It felt like something was moving in my ear. I stuck my finger into my ear real deep and I pulled a little white dot out of my ear. As I was looking at this dot, it began to move. I freaked out and made an appointment to see Dr. Reggish. I found out from Dr. Reggish that the pin worm can be found a lot in the ears, nose and anus area and that at night the female pin worm comes out and lays eggs. He said that the pin worms move around causing you to itch at night. Their eggs can be found in your linens on your bed and could be transferred to others easily. My 4 year old daughter is in day care and she’s always itching. Dr. Reggish said day care kids pass the parasites to each other when putting toys in their mouth and sharing a toy. Dr. Reggish gave me some herbs and I’ve been taking them for 7 weeks. I haven’t felt anything moving and I’m no longer itching. Also I’ve lost 28 lbs in 7 weeks without dieting doing his program. Thank You Dr. Reggish. ~Betty B, Romeo, Mi I started coming to Dr Reggish because I was suffering with Chronic Fatigue along with bad constipation problems. Like I 20

was going only once every 4 days. I was feeling very bloated after eating and was having bad hot flashes and night sweats. I’m only 40 yrs old and shouldn’t be having these problems. Dr Reggish ran a lot of different tests and found out I was allergic to a lot of foods. He also found out that I had a lot of toxic metals and chemicals in my body. He also found out that I had parasites and fungus. Dr Reggish said that parasites will live off of fecal material in the intestines and travel thru the blood to all parts of the body. He said that as the parasites are dying off, I’ll notice my weight will start going down. He gave me herbs and supplements and after doing them for a week my chronic fatigue was gone and I was having one bowel movement a day and sometimes two in a day. I also began losing weight. The first week was 12 lbs. I was shocked. I asked Dr. Reggish if this was possible. He said, well look at yourself. By the third week, I was having 2 to 3 a day. After 6 weeks, I’m down 36 lbs. and no more hot flashes or night sweets. I’ve tried everything for 3 years now to lose weight and could not lose 5 lbs. and yet Dr Reggish made it so easy to lose 36 lbs. I understand why all his patients love him. Thanks Dr Reggish for all you do. ~Heather M. Livonia, Mi The Reggish Holistic Wellness Clinic

What’s Making Me Fat? Long ago, food used to be alive and came from the land, sky or sea. But now, things have changed. In my opinion, things have to be real to be called food. For example: apples, strawberries, blueberries, melons, carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, spinach, fish, chicken, beef, turkey, avocados, shrimp, almonds, cashews and mangos. These are real foods…chemicals, artificial sweeteners, colors, dyes, fat blockers, preservatives, pesticides, plastics, paint thinners, oven cleaners, weed killers, and spider spray just don’t count as food. Have you ever looked up the uses for some of these chemicals commonly found in our food? And what exactly is Yellow #5 or Blue #6? What purpose do aluminum, sodium benzoate, quinolone, carmoisine, and tartarazine 19140 serve in a body? I was reading a package the other day and its second ingredi-

ent was Sunset Yellow FCF15985(e110). What’s that? I surely didn’t think my body needed that for good health, so I decided to skip that ingredient for dinner. Many of these chemicals are designed to add color to your paint or remove stains from your carpets, to build navy ships and bulletproof vest. They are not foods. Therefore, they should not be consumed. Use them to decorate your house and build bombproof shelters, but do not put them into your mouth. The American Medical Society has coined a term for these industrial chemicals found in or sprayed on foods: Obesogens. These obesogens disrupt normal hormonal balance and inhibit lipid (fat) metabolism. Obesogens can literally make you fat! Sadly, and ironically, most “diet” packaged foods are loaded with obesogens. Don’t eat them! Should you be concerned? Yes, because the accumulation of these toxins might someday kill you.The fact is, the liver breaks down chemicals and metabolizes

When you eat real food, it is full of nutrients and fiber. Everything in it can be used for some good purpose by the body. Chemicals have to be filtered out, preservatives block nutrient absorption, and additives create a bizarre science experiment inside the body. It’s okay to eat just about anything that is real food, but you will never hear me encourage you to eat obesogens. Let’s keep it real and lose that weight! God Bless, Dr. Michael D.

We can choose how we want our liver to spend its day--breaking down the chemicals we are eating (under the belief that it is food), or burning off the fat from the derriere, belly, chin and thighs.

Therefore, when you purchase a crystal, you should clear it of these unwanted energies prior to using it. When you wear crystals, display them in your home or office, carry them in your pocket or use them for healing, they also absorb energy and need to be cleared in order to function optimally. Energy is not good or bad, it just is. When a crystal becomes “full”, it needs to be cleared in order to function optimally.

· Leave the crystals in the sunlight to clear and charge them. Be cautious, though, quartz especially can become a fire hazard! · Moonlight energy, especially the new or full moon, can be powerful in clearing and charging crystals. · Bury the crystal in the earth for 1 – 2 weeks. · Place in brown rice for 24 hours to balance and center the energy. · Smudge is burned and the smoke is passed over the stones to clear the unwanted energies. White sage is optimal. Cedar is a good choice if sage is not available.

There are many ways to clean a crystal, but the most common are listed below:

· Frankincense incense is powerful for clearing and spiritually uplifting the energy.

· To remove dust, brush the crystal with a soft brush. A small make-up brush is ideal.

· Sound can be used to clear. Place the crystal in a crystal or Tibetan singing bowl. Play the bowl. The dirty energy is pulled out of the stone as you play. (Do not use this technique for points as they can chip.) An alternative is to ring Tibetan bells over the stones.

· If the crystal is not water soluble, place it under running water for a few minutes. · To clean newly purchased crystals, soak the crystal in a glass bowl filled with spring water for 24 hours for a deeper

You can tell your crystals need to be cleaned if they are new, appear dusty, lack brilliance, feel sticky to the touch, or have been used for healing. Certain crystals respond better to certain clearing methods. It is best to consult a reference on crystals before placing your crystals in water or salt water as the properties of some crystals can be affected by the treatment.

Jesus for Dinner

else to serve my guest” and she handed the man her grocery bag.

Ruth went to her mailbox and there was only one letter. She picked it up and looked at it before opening, but then she looked at the envelope again. There was no stamp, no postmark, only her name and address. She read the letter:

“Thank you lady. Thank you very much!” “Yes, thank you!” It was the man’s wife, and Ruth could see now that she was shivering. “You know, I’ve got another coat at home. Here, why don’t you take this one.” Ruth unbuttoned her jacket and slipped it over the woman’s shoulders. Then smiling, she turned and walked back to the street without her coat and with nothing to serve her guest. “Thank you lady! Thank you very much!”

Dear Ruth: I`m going to be in your neighborhood Saturday afternoon and I’d like to stop by for a visit. Love Always, Jesus Her hands were shaking as she placed the letter on the table. “Why would the Lord want to visit me? I’m nobody special. I don’t have anything to offer.” With that thought, Ruth remembered her empty kitchen cabinets. “Oh my goodness, I really don’t have anything to offer. I’ll have to run down to the store and buy something for dinner.” She reached for her purse and counted out its contents, five dollars and forty cents. “Well, I can get some bread and cold cuts, at least” and she threw on her coat and hurried out the door. At the store, she got a loaf of French bread, a half-pound of sliced turkey, and a carton of milk. That left her with a grand total of twelve cents to last her until Monday. Nonetheless, she felt good as she headed home with her meager offerings tucked under her arm. “Hey lady, can you help us, lady?” Ruth had been so absorbed in her dinner plans; she hadn’t even noticed two figures huddled in the alleyway. A man and a woman, both of them dressed in little more than rags. “Look lady, I ain’t got a job, ya know, and my wife and I have been living out here on the street, and, well, now it’s getting cold and we’re getting kinda hungry and, well, if you could help us. Lady, we’d really appreciate it.” Ruth looked at them both. They were dirty, they smelled bad and frankly, she was certain that they could get some kind of work if they really wanted to. “Sir, I’d like to help you, but I’m a poor woman myself. All I have is a few cold cuts and some bread, and I’m having an important guest for dinner tonight and I was planning on serving that to Him.” “Yeah, well, okay lady, I understand. Thanks anyway.” The man put his arm around the woman’s shoulders, turned and headed back into the alley. As she watched them leave, Ruth felt a familiar twinge in her heart. “Sir, wait!” The couple stopped and turned as she ran down the alley after them. “Look, why don’t you take this food. I’ll figure out something December 2013

Ruth was chilled by the time she reached her front door, and worried too. The Lord was coming to visit and she didn’t have anything to offer Him. She fumbled through her purse for the door key. But as she did, she noticed another envelope in her mailbox. “That’s odd. The mailman doesn’t usually come twice in one day.” She took the envelope out of the box and opened it. Dear Ruth: It was so good to see you again. Thank you for the lovely meal. And thank you, too, for the beautiful coat. Love Always, Jesus The air was still cold, but even without her coat, Ruth was warm all over. Happy Holidays to All!

Father Murphy walks into a bar on Bourbon Street, and asks the first man he meets, ‘Do you want to go to heaven?’ The man said, ‘I do, Father.’ The priest said, ‘Then stand over there against the wall.’ Then the priest asked the second man, ‘Do you want to go to heaven?’ ‘Certainly, Father,’ the man replied. ‘Then stand over there against the wall,’ said the priest. Then Father Murphy walked up to Thibodaux and asked, ‘Do you want to go to heaven?’ Thibodaux said, ‘No, I don’t Father.’ The priest said, ‘I don’t believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don’t want to go to heaven?’ Thibodaux said, ‘Oh, when I die, yes. I thought you were getting a bunch together to go right now.’

Making the Holidays Easier Holidays are a wonderful time, associated with fond memories, milestones and festive feelings. For some, the holidays can also be a time of high stress. This year try some new holiday traditions to make your holiday easier. Don’t alter everything you love about the holidays. Just be more prepared, balanced and mindful when it comes to your health, happiness and wellness. To improve your body and well-being, try these holiday tips—and give yourself a real reason to celebrate! Remember to stretch before setting the table, or hanging lights. Unlike daily exercises and workout routines, preholiday planning and activities can make you use muscles and perform tasks that your body isn’t used to. Take the time to stretch and get centered. Stretch and warm up before you clean the house for guests, lift a frozen turkey, lug firewood or hang decorations. Your body doesn’t know the difference between holiday and everyday eating! Holiday parties and feasts are often viewed as a free pass to overindulge, enjoy excessive amounts of food and drink, and then submit to complete inactivity for the rest of the festivities. The holidays are special, but holiday eating can lead to bad health habits—no matter what resolutions we set for ourselves. To combat this common occurrence without feeling deprived, rethink your portion sizes and food combinations. If you feel bloated or have digestive discomfort, there is a need for digestive enzymes blended with probiotics to help your digestive system handle all your

holiday indulgences. NonInvasive testing can determine the correct digestive enzymes for your body. Before you go in for seconds or reload your dessert plate, take a walk around the block, get some fresh seasonal air outdoors, see if your host needs any help with cleaning, or have a stretch while checking in at the kids table. Just spending fifteen minutes focused on conversation between helpings can help you understand just how full you’re feeling and prevent you from eating to the point of discomfort. It puts your focus on those around you rather than the plate in front of you. It’s okay to step back if you’re feeling over-extended. During the holidays, stress comes from many sources. Your body stores stresses more than you realize; which is why physical breaking points can occur. If you feel the stress stacking up, don’t be afraid to ask for help or say “no” as needed. Don’t strive for perfection at the cost of your own wellness. Customized nutritional support can help your body handle the holiday stress and help you enjoy the holidays better. Remember, you don’t have to wait until you crash or until after the holidays to recharge and renew your body. Alternative holistic wellness health care providers have a variety of non-invasive, non-drug services that can help you stay healthy, feel less stressed, and better enjoy the holiday season.

Golden Present Some time ago a mother punished her 5 year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child pasted the gold paper so as to decorate a box like a gift. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and said, “This is for you, Momma�. The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, “Helping You again Back onshe the Road to Good Health� but her anger flared when found the box was empty.

Food of the Month Brown Rice Syrup When asked what is my favorite sweetener, I always answer, brown rice syrup. Unfortunately, most people have not heard of it which makes it the best kept health food secret! I make all kinds of desserts with brown rice syrup, from cookies, cakes and pies, to candies, fudge, jams and so much more. As the name implies, it is made from brown rice, which is a whole grain, complex carbohydrate, a staple in all of our ancestors diets. The brown rice syrup is produced when naturally occurring enzymes convert the starch in the grain to sugar. The process retains the vitamin and mineral content of the brown rice. And being made from a complex carbohydrate, the sugar that is produced is maltose. Maltose is the least reactive sugar there is. It releases slowly into your blood stream, unlike white sugar, or sucrose which releases very quickly into the blood stream and reeks havoc with all the organs in your body. Brown rice syrup and the maltose in the syrup will not spike your blood sugar. For that reason it is considered the healthiest sweetener. It has a mild sweet taste that is satisfying. However, if you have been using sweeteners that are very sweet, it may not be sweet enough for you at first. If you stick with the brown rice syrup, it will taste sweet after you give up all those intensely sweet foods that are not good for you. You will find it in a jar at your local health food store, or even some mainstream grocery stores. It is thick and sticky like honey. When measuring it, coat your measuring cup and spatula with a little oil and the syrup will slide right off instead of sticking. This pie is a very rich, decadent dessert. I make it once a year at my Christmas party. I use Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips because they are sweetened with malted barley and corn. Just like brown rice syrup, they are whole grain sweeteners that are maltose and therefore will not spike your blood sugar. When making this recipe, you will need cookie crumbs. I use my own homemade cookies but you can also use some whole grain, healthy cookies from the store. Put them in a food processor and puree until the crumbs are very fine.

Chocolate Cream Pie with Cookies Crust Crust: 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs 3 T. water 2 T. olive oil Filling: 2 packages Mori Nu Silken Organic Firm tofu 2 cups Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips 1/2 cup brown rice syrup 2 tsp. vanilla 1/4 tsp. sea salt To make crust, mix together the cookie crumbs, water and oil. You should get a thick consistency and it should be moist enough to stick together. Adjust the water content to achieve the desired consistency. Press the crumbs into an oiled pie shell. To make filling, steam the tofu for 7 minutes. Slowly melt the chocolate chips, either in a sauté pan or a double boiler. You’ll have to watch the chocolate chips to make sure they don’t burn. Put the tofu, melted chocolate chips, brown rice syrup, vanilla and sea salt in a food processor and puree until smooth. Pour into the crust and refrigerate for a couple hours until pie is cold. Cut and serve cold. Valerie Wilson Valerie Wilson is a chef , author, counselor, and host of ‘Healthy Cooking with MacroVal’ radio show on Body Mind Spirit Radio. Located in Westland, Michigan, she has been teaching whole foods cooking classes since 1997. Recipe is from her cookbook ‘Perceptions In Healthy Cooking’. Visit: www.macroval.com (734)722-4553.

Giving When It Counts Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies, needed to combat the illness. The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, “Yes, I’ll do it if it will save her.” As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, “Will I start to die right away?” Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood in order to save her. Be as Children... Give with a whole heart. 28

Family Time, Holy Time Part 2 We ended last month with looking at how interactions with your family can bring out negative inner feelings, experiencing yourself as a youngster again, and/or possibly reflecting to you an aspect of yourself that you can work on. Both can be delved into and investigated by allowing yourself to identify your feelings and experiencing them. We also looked briefly at “go to” statements that you can practice and use when you are in situations you have previously found stressful. As mentioned before, every encounter is a holy one, allowing you to grow towards self-actualization and fulfill your potential in this life. As you see each encounter as holy, seeing the experience as being sent into your awareness of the world by Divine Source, you can choose to learn and grow in love and acceptance. What would you do with something, a gift, sent to you by Divine Source? Would you throw it away, or would you choose to extract all the wisdom you can from this gift? Your family and your placement in your family of origin is pre-designed by you and your Creator to allow for your maximum growth. You can start there. Ask questions like: How does dad’s alcoholism affect me and my choice of lifestyle? What does mom’s victim role teach me? How does sister’s antagonistic relationship keep me defensive and not allow me to let others in? Your family scripts and roles were chosen for you to learn from. They become the blueprints to your being in the world, and holiday time is typically when they combust. Are you feeling trapped, apprehensive and defensive with even the thought of being with your family? When these feelings come up, Divine Source is cut off by you... love is defended against, and trust, even of the Divine, is not allowed in. When with your family, take time out to journal insights and realizations, emotions and patterns of thought so that you can learn from them in the safety of your own space. You can go for a walk, take a breath of fresh air, go to the privacy of the bathroom if desired, to create the space to go within. Writing down in a journal or a cell phone allows you to remember what your ego wants you to forget or use to rationalize behavior, thoughts and feelings that are not of love and therefore not of your true self. You may be in the habit of exploding, hiding, going silent, or whatever defense you learned as a child to make being with a difficult family easier. This year, become aware of these habits that hinder your growth and control you from behind the conscious awareness. These habits actually can increase

separation from experiencing your true self. After taking this time out, noting what thoughts and feelings, things that keep you locked in old beliefs and scripts about yourself and others, take a few minutes to center yourself with your breathing or visualizing -- whatever you find works for you to allow yourself to re-connect with your Source. Feel the love within and feel it expanding, protecting you. If you have difficulty, just visualizing someone you love, feeling the love flowing to this visualized image allows that connection to ignite. You can then choose to re-enter the family energy while feeling love for yourself , the love surrounding you and protecting you. If you desire, you can even interact with family members while feeling the love, and see how differently they respond to you. Law of attraction: What you really feel and think about is what you draw to you. See what happens--while feeling love, your vibration changes and will attract others of harmonizing vibrations. You could also feel discord with your family’s non-loving focus--this too you can learn and grow from.

Christmas is… Christmas is a gift of love wrapped in human flesh and tied securely with the strong promises of God. Christmas is angelic music in the form of a carol and oratorio with a celestial descant. Christmas is “glory to God,” “good will to man,” and “joy to the world.” Christmas is “peace on earth” for those who accept it and live in unity with God’s will. Christmas is a man on duty tending sheep, or a machine, who senses the upward call and stops to worship. Christmas is a tall green tree which serves as a festive altar for any household which discovers the true meaning behind it all. Christmas is a ringing bell calling a distraught humanity to gladness and hope. Christmas is a glowing hearth gently placed in the winter of man’s loneliness. Christmas is an altar to which man can bring his heartache for comfort, his lostness for guidance, and his sin for forgiveness. Christmas is the sparkle of anticipation and the steady light of faith in the eyes of a little child as he hears the old, old story. Christmas is the shining star of hope in the sky of all mankind. Christmas is more than words can tell, for it is a matter for the heart to receive, believe and understand. Merry Christmas! P a g e 35

Unified Web of Creation Nothing you do, say or accomplish can change the love you are. You are loved, because you are loved. Be willing to expand into a greater awareness of the love you are, and then all you do becomes an act of unconditional love. If you believe love is obedience, or how much you accomplish, suddenly all you do becomes a search to find yourself. Bring compassionate awareness to ALL parts of your life; not just the ‘pretty’ parts. Simple gentle awareness heals what you observe. Healing is that simple, yet that difficult because we are taught to ‘do’ something. An inward peaceful glance to your perceived unlovability organically produces a happier self. If your life, health, finances are not what you would like them to be, it is because you have repressed pain. Complacently pretending to be satisfied with scraps does not glorify the beauty that Creation intended you to be. Yes, be grateful, but don’t confuse gratitude with mediocrity. What dreams have you denied? What talents have you forgotten? YOU have such beauty, talent, love and creativity that is constantly wanting to be expressed through you. The problem is, if we block the pain (fear, doubt, grief, shame) we also block the flow of creativity and good. Add just a small dash of story or shame to a feeling, and you can now be trapped for years. In an intentional surrender, we begin to let things flow through us, and we then discover a joy that is beyond the duality of love/fear, joy/grief. The Love I am referring to is not the opposite of hate--it includes all things and is all things. You are that Love. You are loved no matter what you think, feel, or do. Your thoughts, beliefs, and actions are just leaves to a tree. The process of self acceptance will lead you to realize your beautiful whole self (tree). Finding beauty in the suffering, or harmony in the pain requires a shift in your attention. Learning to observe feelings and thoughts takes practice. You are the part of yourself that is aware that you have thoughts, and you are those thoughts. In other words: You are the dancer and the dance.. the observer and what is observed. When you are able to yield to the abundant flow of life by embracing the darkness (emotional pain / limiting beliefs) you realize you are the unifying divine light that includes the dark. Fighting to ‘be positive’ will trap you in a mental circus eventually draining you into a pile of shame. Carl Jung: “If the tension of opposites is not brought to harmony within, what you produce instead are factions within the personality – and thereupon the world.” Realizing your non-dual self beyond the personality requires an acceptance of your ‘persona’ and co-currently a surrender to a greater you. Last week at Energetics Of Healing retreat, 14 women saw the profound power of breathing in the ‘darkness’. They didn’t try to rationalize, change the story, or analyze where it all came from. The women were also shown how to breathe in the suffering of another to spontaneously heal. Every time we did the process years of pain and Body Mind Spirit Guide |

Decenber 2013


trauma fell off, and I would hear someone declare “it just can’t be that simple!” It takes a warrior’s heart to look into the darkness and let the light beyond thought, be revealed. Unified awareness held from an inner realization of a omnipresent force, heals what you view. Feel the sadness for the Philippines or your suffering family member, but let the pain move through. Allow the suffering to expand you to another understanding of the non-dual omnipresent Love within and around you. Once you allow all of life to be fully experienced, you uncover a spontaneous joy within. It sounds paradoxical to embrace pain to know joy. BUT, our bodies and heart are already feeling the pain of our loved ones and the Earth. Numbing our pain with entertainment, rationalization, food, drugs etc., doesn’t work. Release your attachments to only being in the light and you discover a peace that transcends conditions. Surrender is not passive. Letting go to Creation/Love in the moment feels like the scary unknown, and it takes great courage. Like a monkey surrounded by an orchard, who has his hand trapped in a vase from trying to get a rotten apple, we also hold onto our ‘precious’ limitations (darkness). Peace can be found amidst the chaos in your powerful surrender to Love. Accepting ‘what is’ (rotten apple) spontaneously allows greater vision to be seen (orchard). As we practice embracing ‘what is’ we no longer deny what our heart has known. Acceptance allows a greater vision of love to be seen and ends the energetic tug of war. Love IS all things. Turn towards what scares you, be still with the discomfort, and then a unifying web of Creation will be revealed. In service, Barbra White

Alchemy of the Heart

the affirmation as a mantra or prayer as you breathe and hold your hands over your heart.

There is a saying that the longest journey you will take in this life is from your head to your heart. At times, traveling this path is challenging because our fearful mind thinks it knows best. The truth is that the mind is best used when it can be a humble servant, surrendering its fears to the limitless love, wisdom, and wholeness found within our heart. Although the power of the heart is well understood within many spiritual traditions, science is now catching up with this ageless wisdom. Gregg Braden explains that the heart’s electric field is 100 times stronger than the brain’s electrical field, and the heart’s magnetic field is 5,000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field. Our hearts are truly super conductors of love! With all of this magnetic and electrical power, the heart is actually an energy vortex that can be accessed and used to transmute fear into love. This is the alchemy of the heart. Utilizing the heart’s incredible alchemical power is a practical way to feel better and release fears and painful emotions you may be experiencing. Here is one of my favorite exercises to utilize the power of the heart. It’s especially helpful to do this when you are experiencing emotional pain, because the feeling will be easy to access. Keep in mind that the feeling can also be in the form of a negative thought or selfjudgment, as these thoughts generate painful emotions. To begin the exercise, notice where you feel the negative emotion in your body. If you have a hard time feeling the emotion physically, just hold your awareness on the negative feeling. Second, visually imagine bringing the feeling into your heart. It can be helpful to imagine the emotion as a tangible object that you are moving into the heart space. Because energy follows awareness, you 40

Often, the painful emotion will want to move away from the heart and back into another part of the body. I have found that consistently bringing the emotion back into the heart (even if it retreats time and time again) helps to transmute the negative emotion.

are basically using your awareness to visually move the emotion (which holds an energy) into the vortex of the heart. You can also use your breath to direct the emotion into your heart. As you inhale, use the movement of your breath to guide the emotion into the heart space. As you exhale, just relax. Take as many breaths as you need until you feel the emotion centered in the heart. I also find it helpful to use your hands to guide the emotion into your heart. Although this is an internal process, it does help to sweep the hands from the part of the body where you feel the emotion and imagine that you are guiding the energy of the emotion into the heart. You can experiment and see whether visualization, a guided breath, or hand movements (or a combination of the three) works best for you. Once you can feel the emotion in the area of your heart, place both your hands over your heart as a way to “hold” the energy there. The emotion can stay in the heart area without this physical gesture, but I find that this helps. As you “hold” the emotion in your heart, take some deep, mindful breaths. Imagine breathing the emotion into your heart with each inhale and relax on the exhale. The last step is to affirm to yourself that this emotion, this painful part of you, is okay. A good affirmation is, “I love and accept this part of myself.” If the emotion is especially intense, it helps to repeat

The heart can transform any negative emotion or thought, no matter how intense or overwhelming they feel. In my experience, this exercise seems to work the best with the thoughts and emotions that many people would describe as the darkest, most shameful and guilty parts of themselves. However, less intense negative emotions can certainly be transmuted in the heart space as well. As you continue traveling the path of this dynamic, beautiful, and mysterious life experience, remember that relief from painful emotions is never far away. Through the alchemy of the heart, we can powerfully transform fear into love.

Don’t let another year pass without knowing your purpose! A large number of people believe that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. If this is true the question arises: “Why are we having this experience?” In other words, why did our soul decide to come here? If you believe the theory that Earth is a school and we are here to learn certain lessons, you are probably wondering what lessons you are here to learn. While all of us may be here to increase our wisdom and our capacity to love, we also have individual lessons to learn. For example, some may be here to learn forgiveness, others compassion, and others to be kinder. The problem is that many of us have no idea what our individual lessons are. Wouldn’t it be great to find out what you came here to learn? This may surprise you but there is a way to gain this valuable information. A very effective method, developed by Dolores Cannon, is to make contact with the highly evolved beings on the Super-conscious level. Some may call these angels, or ascended masters or guides, etc. but regardless of what you call them they are more than happy to give you their valuable guidance. With this method, you can ask any question which pertains to your life and get answers to your questions. People often want to know if they are in the right line of work, and if not, what career would be best for them. Many people have health issues and want to find out why they have those problems and what would be the best way to deal with them. Others want to know if they should move to a different location. Some people want to find out the best way to help one or

more of their children. People often ask questions about relationships they are in, or if they will soon find the person they are meant to be with. Some have unwanted habits and wish to eliminate them. No question is off limits, and you can get the answer to any question as long as it would be of benefit to you. The beings on the Super-conscious level will only give you information that will benefit you, and never harm you. Regardless of the type of question you have, the highly evolved beings on the other side are more than willing to give you the needed answers to your questions. These ascended masters have access to all the information about our lives. They know why we have come here and they also know everything that has ever happened to us. Do you realize how valuable this guidance can be? Many people go through their whole life without knowing what they came here to experience. How tragic it would be to spend your whole life doing something other than what you came here to accomplish. Why wait until the end of your life to find that you may have gone astray, and not followed your true path? Gaining this knowledge could totally turn your life around. In addition, when you find out how powerful and special you are, you will be able to let go of unhealthy beliefs. If we are all spiritual beings, how can we not be magnificent and awesome? Being in communication with these ascended masters will help you realize that you are special and that you are here for a reason. It’s time to stop thinking small. It’s time to give up the unhealthy and false beliefs that are pulling you down. This opportunity may not have been available before, but it is now. Why not take advantage of this incredible guidance?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) – Happy birthday Sagittarius! Venus retrogrades this month, helping you resolve problematic financial habits as well as self-worth issues. Meditate on your self-perception and how that level of personal value affects your spending habits (being careless or undisciplined leading to debt?), and also how it affects the quality of your relationships. Look within with courage and many breakthroughs will occur! Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) – Venus is retrograding in your sign, which is very rare! Take these next two months to meditate on all your past relationships and your current one, if partnered (especially what’s happened over the past eight years). Forgive yourself for recurring patterns so that you can allow the pattern to heal. Continued shame and selfrecrimination just empowers the negative. Claim your right to be fully loved – by yourself and by all others you bond with! Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) – Meditation will give flashes of insight about how your thinking affects your perception of past relationships. Ponder your romantic bonds from the past eight years (length of the Venus retrograde cycle). Reframe experiences as lessons learned, and karma completed – rather than as bitter memories and selfcondemnation. Release the old perceptions and more joy will flood in! art & hand crafted items new age botanica supplies fair trade treasures metaphysical workshops psychics

Spiritual Horoscopes Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – You’ll have many financial breakthroughs, and maybe even exciting new money-making opportunities! Also, try reaching out to old friends and reconnecting. Get back to doing fun hobbies or activities that you love. Mid-month, stay centered when faced with frustrating communication. Things will clarify and become smooth again, working in your favor, so don’t waste energy being worried or miffed! Aries (March 21 – April 19) – Uranus, the planet of change and liberation, moves direct in your sign. Expect an inner revolution! Your consciousness can expand suddenly, giving you a new self-perception, a different “vibration” and positively affect your relationships. You will also be freed from subconscious patterns that have kept you in difficult work situations. Meditate and release the past eight years (or more!) of challenges in matters of the heart or career – and be open to brand new circumstances! Taurus (April 20 – May 20) – Your dreams and meditations are filled with many revelations and insights, so pay attention! Write them down and take action on the inner guidance. This is especially strong mid-month. In your spiritual life, ponder how you’ve grown

over the past eight years (a Venus retrograde cycle). Be okay with shifting your approach to spirituality, whether it be changing yoga teachers, exploring a different religion or trying a new style of meditation. Enjoy change and don’t fear it, Taurus! Gemini (May 21 – June 20) – New avenues of relationships, activities and connections are opening suddenly! You’ll feel more inspired and excited about life! As your heart and mind open, meditate on old disappointments that could inhibit your ability to receive love and joy. Let go of these pains and affirm that you have successfully completed karma – and you deserve rewards for the pain you’ve been through! Cancer (June 21 – July 22) – Exciting shifts can happen at work! Maybe a great new job offer? Or maybe a wonderful supervisor or colleague comes aboard who you really click with. In relationships, meditate on ways you block partnership. It could be a sense of criticism – or maybe being overly needy? Use December and January to examine these types of hidden emotional patterns. Free yourself of your own limiting thoughts! Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) – Look forward to exciting changes with your spiritual life! Meditation can be filled with incredible visions or insights. Try new yoga or tai chi classes. Research a different form of religion. Maybe attend a spiritual workshop or travel to an exotic place! Let a sense of newness spark a fire in you! Health wise, look at eating habits that deplete your energy and meditate on the courage to release those foods or substances! Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) – The Universe is urging you to heal dysfunctional relationship patterns and

issues of trust. Meditate and journal about past hurts, disappointments and heartbreaks. Release these experiences so they don’t poison your future! A new partner is coming, or a current relationship can be renewed – but only if you’re willing to be openhearted and hopeful. Also, let go of self-criticism and obsessive evaluation. Don’t dwell or punish yourself about your part in things – just note events and surrender them to the Universe. Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) – This month offers energy to help relationships! Venus, your ruling planet – and the planet of love and fulfillment, retrogrades. It gives you chances to heal the roots of all sorts of dysfunctional issues from family and deep emotional wounds. Revolutionary shifts of consciousness can occur if you do the preparatory work. Allow insights to surface; forgive all the “junk” of the past eight years (or beyond!); believe there is more to your soul story than what you already know! Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) – Eek gads! You are so mean to yourself! Use this month to practice kind affirmations about wonderful YOU during your meditation time. Also, observe how you can drive yourself with too many activities. Schedule time for relaxation and stress relief – even becoming aware of your breath while wait at a red light will help! You are so much more awesome than you let yourself think that you are!

SIMPLIFY FOR THE HOLIDAYS During the holiday season people can become stressed by the materialistic aspect of the holidays and the push to spend too much money. Personally, I feel blessed because my family appreciates the importance of spending quality time in celebration of the holiday spirit. People appreciate gifts that are homemade because your energy, love and intention goes into it. Giving crystals for gifts can be easy on your budget and offer someone self healing through your loving intention. Stones work best by being in your auric field, so making a loved one an “intentional pouch” can be easy for them to use. An intention pouch has multiple stones inside that you have chosen for their specific properties. To make an intention pouch, purchase a small pouch that easily opens and closes. Think about the person you want to make an intention pouch for as you read over the following list. Purchase 5-6 stones at any new age gift shop or online that sells crystals. Before placing each one in the pouch, hold it in your hands at your heart and think of your intention for the other person. Visualize this person in their highest self, see them happy and healthy, while filling the stone with love. Thank the stones for working with the intended person. Then place each stone in the pouch. You may also want to include a small write-up about each of the stones properties so the receiver can better understand your intentions. Children resonate very well with crystals. Here is a list of stones for specific intentions:

www.BodyMindSpiritRADIO.com

Prosperity/ Success- red pouch = Garnet, jade, moss agate, malachite, citrine, emerald, lodestone, ruby. Healing- green pouch = Larimar, bloodstone, fluorite, lepidolite, smokey quartz, petalite, calcite, rose quartz. Reducing stress- blue pouch= Lepidolite, larimar, blue Lace agate, angelite, celestite, smokey quartz, chrysoprase, aquamarine, sodalite, lapis lazuli, rhodonite. Enhancing psychic senses- dark blue pouch= Iolite, moldavite, petalite, celestite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, amethyst, tanzanite, kyanite, danburite, sugilite, labradorite, charoite, phenacite, apophyllite. Love- pink or green pouch= Rose quartz, emerald, watermelon tourmaline, ruby, kunzite. Protection- black or red pouch= Black tourmaline, sunstone, citrine, jet. Meditation-blue pouch = Lapis lazuli, clear quartz, sodalite, kyanite, iolite, petalite, moldavite Educational Success - any color pouch = Lepidolite, hematite, amethyst, rutilated quartz, clear quartz, fluorite. Ascension- purple or white pouch= Kunzite, seraphinite, kyanite, moldavite, phenacite, petalite, charoite. Life path = Danburite, sugilite, amazonite, citrine, selenite. Have fun making the intention pouch(s) this holiday season. They truly make great gifts that touch the heart and spirit! Jennifer VanderWal is a Melody Crystal Healing Instructor and Reiki master.

Point of Origin of Change Some of you may have used or are familiar with the theories that we create deep and permanent change through shifting our thoughts. For some of you this has worked, and you may not want to read further. For others, like myself, using that theory provided no satisfactory results. Through a long struggle to create change in my own life, I have been transformed by a new understanding from my teacher Kiera D Laike, IRW. She has brought a deep awakening to what she calls, “point of origin” to me and others. Point of origin is the unseen beginning of what is created. Everything we create and experience has it’s own point of origin. I have learned through Embodied Practice to work from this deep level with myself and clients. “Thoughts are the end results of a complex mixture of neurotransmitters, prefrontal lobe perception, the relationship of the glia cells in the brain to the vortexes in the body, and our ability to work with and utilize energetic containers. To work to change thoughts without supporting all of the above is to leave us struggling to change.” Kiera D. Laike, IRW To support you in understanding Kiera’s quote about the energetic mechanisms of change, I want to share one of my client’s experiences. Alana’s experience as an elementary school teacher shows the effectiveness of locating the point of origin in relationship issues. She had a few out-of-control, troubled young students. In addition, the children as a group often actively ignored her instructions. Unsuccessfully trying one classroom management technique after another, she resigned herself to this. An underlying chaos often threatened to overtake the room. One day, while volunteering in her room, I directed the children as they divided into groups. I used Embodied energetic skills, including staying grounded to Earth, energetically grounding the classroom, activating the vibrational energy in my throat before I spoke, and pulsing with

their energy through my contained electromagnetic field of energy. They immediately settled down, listened and followed instructions. Alana, was very interested to understand the mechanisms I used. She came for Embodied Practice classes and healings, and strengthened her energy system and skills. Alana came to understand that ungrounded energy in herself and in the classroom was one of the point of origins of the unruly behavior. She learned to stay consistently grounded, to contain her energetic field and ground the room, and speak from a different vibration. She called me one day, pleased to report that the children immediately quieted and followed her directions which occurred with ease. The children’s excess energy could now flow down the classrooms grounded connection to Earth, instead of building up inside their bodies, creating pressure which they needed to expel with inappropriate behavior. Their behavior changed in response to Alana’s skill at changing the energy. Her sense of resignation began to dissipate, and with it the hopelessness in dealing with her daily life. Hopelessness or disheartenment emerges in us when we do not have the mechanisms to work from point of origin in our daily life. Embodied Practice teaches that energetic changes provide the basis for success. Learning to identify the precise nature, origin and location of that energy within our complex energetic systems is one of the skills of Embodied Practice. www.EmbodiedWellnessCenter.com or (248) 470-5738.

INTUITION AND THE EGO

instead wants to gain power and control over you, or prove how superior he or she is. Don’t Go There!

Clear, high-level and accurate intuitive information is the desired goal, wouldn’t you agree? One can reach a level of mastery wherein they will only use their spiritual/intuitive abilities for the highest good of all concerned; in this case, ego involvement is no longer a factor that distracts from the purity of the message. It is important that students are made aware of the downfalls of bringing their ego into the intuitive process and learn how to serve only in the highest and best way. How Ego Interferes With Intuition Intuition and ego run on different tracks. When the ego is involved, intuition is not as strong and pure. Messages from high-level sources become clouded when one’s ego wants the reader or recipient to be recognized as special. We are all special, but not more special than others. The ego is rooted in fear, rather than love. It is insecure and seeks external validation. It is dedicated to being right and wants its human to be seen as the best, the most lovable, smartest, strongest, most successful…. absolutely more wonderful than most others. It

wants its person to stand out in a crowd. And when things get out of control, the ego likes to blame other people or situations for the problem rather than accepting personal responsibility. Flattery or Scolding Flattery or rebukes from a psychic/ intuitive reader are evidence of an ego-sourced message. An ego-driven communication compares the recipient with others, for better or worse. The message is either that the receiver is better than someone else, or not quite good enough. * If a psychic tells a person he or she were some great person in a past life, or more perfect than others, that isn’t a true statement nor a message of pure love. * If a reader brings through a message that makes someone feel bad about who they are, this is not based on pure love either. A Reading Based on Unconditional Love Trust your heart about information given to you in a reading. If the information feels good in your heart and is based on unconditional love, you will feel empowered, supported and loved. You will gain insights and clarity on important matters. Ego stroking or reproach won’t be involved. When one has a tendency to use their intuitive/psychic gift for anything less than unadulterated love, you will feel it. You will sense that he or she is incapable of doing intuitive readings and

Perhaps you have heard stories about psychics who tell someone they have a really dark aura and need to pay the psychic large amounts of money to clear their energy field or terrible things will happen. If you have a reading like this, run! Their message is just a ploy to take money from you and won’t result in anything that is promised. This is an extreme example of someone who uses fear to manipulate people to gain power over them. Your Heart Really Does Know You can trust your heart to let you know if an intuitive/psychic message is accurate. You won’t feel confused, put down, or elevated beyond others. You will feel excited, and pleased. You will gain clarity and empowerment on issues. And you will have the peace of mind that comes from giving and receiving messages based purely on love.

it’s been quite sometime since Sylvia Celeste Browne was in Kansas actually, Kansas City, MO that is, where the psychic icon, renowned spiritual teacher and prolific author (50 published works to her credit) was born on October 19, 1936. And the psychic abilities that surfaced by the age of three carried her on a 6 decade journey of wonder and discovery that she shared with the millions of people who followed her in the media, put 20 of her books on the New York Times best sellers list, supported the Nirvana Foundation that she founded in 1974, and the Society of Novus Spiritus (new spirit), the non-profit organization she started in 1986. For 17 years, Sylvia was a fixture on the Montel show and devotees flocked to take cruises with her; they’d sit in packed auditoriums to hear her speak as well as book readings with the woman who would admonish those eager seekers: “Take what you want and leave the rest behind”. Sylvia Browne took what she wanted from life and left behind a legacy that will keep her star in the heavens shining beyond the bounds of time. She crossed over on Tuesday, November 20, 2013. 46
