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

Natural Remedies for Sore Throats
back of the throat. The recipe calls for a ratio of 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper to 8 ounces of pulpy orange juice.
With the cold season in full swing, it’s important to know a stable of remedies in case you or your loved ones come down with a cold or flu. One of the most irritating symptoms can be a persistent sore throat, which if severe enough can sometimes last days before abating.
2. Goldenseal Gargle: Goldenseal is an herbal antibiotic often used as an antibacterial and to treat local inflammation, and it features an ability to soothe irritated mucus membranes. A suggested recipe is to take half a teaspoon of goldenseal powder with a pinch of sea salt in enough water for a single gargle, and repeat the gargle a few times every hour or so until the sore throat is gone.
The following is a list of 10 timetested and proven natural remedies for sore throats to keep on file for when needed. 1. Cayenne Pepper: Dr. Ben Kim recommends taking cayenne pepper with pulpy orange juice slowly through a straw every two to three hours until the sore throat is gone, but he adds that it can cure a sore throat almost instantly. Cayenne pepper is the active ingredient; the
orange juice is only for flavor and to make the mixture a thicker, so it doesn’t run down your throat too quickly; the straw is suggested so you don’t have to taste spiciness itself. Cayenne pepper has the ability to kill bacteria and viruses that have accumulated in the
3. Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’: Apple cider vinegar with the ‘mother’ is a natural antibiotic that can treat infections and kill bacteria in the throat. You can mix two tablespoons with four ounces of water and gargle that amount every hour, or for a stronger solution, use apple cider vinegar by itself.

4. Mineralized Water: By mineralized water I mean sea salt water, or water mixed with colloidal minerals, the latter for a less salty-tasting experience. The purpose of this gargle is to address the swelling—a gargle of sea salt minerals can help draw out some of the fluid to reduce swelling and relieve some pain.

5. Tea with Lemon and Honey: The base liquid can be a tea or water. The active components are the lemon and the honey. The lemon acts to reduce mucus, and the honey acts not only to coat the throat, but as a natural antibacterial. Because it’s unheated, raw honey is more effective, and the most effective antibacterial honey is manuka honey. 6. Propolis: Propolis is a bee product used for its antibacterial and antiviral properties, and it’s been used since ancient Greek times to treat sore throats. You can often find propolis in spray form to coat the throat. 7. Marshmallow Root: (not to be confused with candy marshmallows) is an herb that can soothe inflamed throats by coating them with mucilage, and stimulate the immune systemby promoting phagocytosis, the removal of pathogens like bacteria. For sore throats specifically, it’s best taken as a tea. 8. Gargle with Baking Soda: Baking soda can be used as an effective antibacterial to treat infections, and it’s a time-tested “old wives’” remedy for sore throats.

9. Zinc Lozenges: Zinc lozenges work by coating the throat with zinc and stimulating the immune system locally to kill the bacterial or viral pathogens responsible for the cold. Try to make sure the lozenges are free of chemicals and additives. 10. Horehound: Horehound is an antiviral and antibiotic herb that can break up mucus and fight off pathogens in the throat. You can find it as a tea, lozenge, and even syrup. Submitted by Betty Hines, Youngevity mineral-based health products http://www.mineralgirl.com/

Working Your Truth Winter is that time of year when we generate more of our own light and energy, as opposed to being fed and nourished by the life and light around us during the warmer months. It is easier to be positive and full of hope and energy when all the substance of life is generously providing for our needs. But during times of lack, such as winter or financial limitation, we are challenged to generate out of ourselves the connections with spirit, beauty, warmth and hope that can give birth to the life we desire. These are the times when we get to work our truth, taking it out of the realm of concept and desire and planting it firmly in our worlds and lives. Generosity, kindness, cheerfulness and hope become things that we have to choose to call forth, whether for ourselves or others. Doing so, we open the door to the spirit of these qualities in truth. Expressing
them begins as an act of faith, and then that connection opens up and it becomes real. Rudolph Steiner, the great philosopher and teacher of the mid 1800s – early 1900s, taught that in summer our souls are lifted up into spirit and receive seeds of truth to nurture within our own souls over the winter months. In this way, we take what is given so freely when it is warm and during the cold and dark months we grow them within our own selves. In his Calendar of the Soul for January 10 – 16 he writes: The soul’s creative might Is striving from the heart’s foundation To set aflame in human life The powers of gods for proper working, To give itself a shape In human love and also human work. These are the times when we can gain mastery and confidence in our true roots in spirit. When forced to bring forth our truth for ourselves, uninspired from
anyone or anything outside of our own souls, we discover we are co-creators with the divine, birthing something beautiful into the world’s dark winter night. Winter is a great time to meditate, whether sitting or walking, to generate the light within. When I become weary and burdened by life and feel that I have forgotten my inner joy and sweetness, I have learned to take a time-lapse vacation. In this clever trick, you can spend as long as you need, wherever you want to be, doing whatever you need to do to reinvigorate yourself; using very little actual time and without having to pack or plan! One time I felt that I needed 3 years off of work. I took two - 15 minute time-lapse vacations and came back fully ready to live my life! Here is a quick guide to your timelapse vacation: 1) Choose a quiet place where you can spend a few minutes without interruption. Give yourself an inner hug all the way

Healing Ascension Treatments Bring Body and Life Into Harmony
down to your toes, to get you out of your head and into your feeling self. Settle back until you feel that your spine is the middle of you, rather than at your back. And then focus yourself deep within your heart and belly; as though all your thoughts and senses could be directed from there. Open your heart and begin… 2) Imagine yourself wherever you desire to be. Imagine using all your senses to feel every aspect of the experience. Spend as many days, weeks or months as you need there in your imagination. 3) Your unconscious self doesn’t understand time, everything is now. So if you want to spend a week or a month lying on a Caribbean Beach, suggest to yourself that you are doing that. Imagine sunsets marking the passing of days, meals being delivered to you; add long naps and daily massages if you want, or any activity at all that rejuvenates your soul. Don’t worry about your responsibilities; be responsible only to yourself during this time. 4) Stay until you feel rejuvenated or until you have to stop. Go back as many times as needed until you feel, truly, that you have rested deeply and are ready to face your life with love and gratitude again. Another tool to help you generate your own light this winter is to strengthen the energy of the sun from within. Centering as in step 1) in the Time-Lapse Vacation exercise above, invite the energy of the sun to shine within your own body and aura; welcome the warmth and light to fill you all the way down to your toes and up to the top of your head, and to radiate beyond into your energy field. Ask it to shine within all day, in a gentle and even glow. Even better is to go outside on sunny days or even on cloudy days and take off your eyeglasses if you wear them, to allow the sun to shine on your face. 10 or 15 minutes of this can make a huge difference in your mood and energy. Any time you give of yourself down to the last drop or crumb of your life force, you have forgotten to receive for yourself. You need to nurture the one that does the giving, so that what is given is whole and balanced. Where you don’t have it to give, perhaps you need to ask yourself what you are doing, what others should be doing for themselves. Working your truth requires you to find the balance between all elements of your life. Not a static balance, but balanced like a bicycle rider, where you pump on both sides of the center and move forward without falling down! Meditation, exercise and the occasional time-lapse vacation can help you to find the balance you need to be a light in your own world this winter.

New Year’s Wishes, The Hope For The World
When you strive, you change. Your intention sets energy in motion and this is good. Honor yourself for taking this step even if you cannot see the effect. But there is an effect even beyond you and it is big.
Whew! Another year is gone, and how fast it passes us by. It’s only natural to look back and reflect upon what we’ve accomplished, both successes and failures. But most of us focus of what we didn’t accomplish rather than on what we did. This time of year is filled with many regrets. We forget about the good we did and think only about the failures. This is a natural tendency that has been programmed into us by society from the earliest of ages. Success is glorified and failure is admonished. But failure is not failure. Your path to a better you is the journey, and it changes you in ways you are not even aware of. In fact, your striving not only changes you but also changes the collective. It is so powerful and so necessary that I call it, The Hope of the World. Failure Is Good We have all heard that failure is good if we learn from it. I couldn’t agree more. We all make mistakes. The key is to learn from them and not get attached to the failure. Learn, let go and move on. However, there is also value in trying. Not just in the sense that if you don’t try you’re not even in the game and can’t score, but in the sense that your striving to be a better you is creating change even if you can’t see it. For the very act of doing so changes you. Society Ignores Inner Success Society measures success at the outward level. It ignores what happens internally at the energetic and esoteric levels. Look for our FREE meditation New Year’s Wishes, The Hope For the World on Wed., Jan. 15 at 9pm, EST on: www.bodymindspiritradio.com. During this meditation, we will clear obstructive energies to our New Year’s Resolutions. Join us in changing planetary consciousness. Your powerful intentions make a difference! 10
Small Shifts Make A Difference Ancient mystics, spiritualist and quantum physicists all agree we are connected. If we make an internal shift, even an imperceptible one, the shift in the underlying energy of our being is felt throughout the universe. Individually we many not notice the change, but energetically it is there. These seemingly small imperceptible changes shift the consciousness of the entire planet. We have no idea where the tipping point is. We may be the one that tips the scale for some issue, and instantly planetary change occurs. When working at this level, not everyone needs to change. If enough individuals change, then the whole can instantly benefit from the upload into the collective consciousness. Planetary change such as the abolishment of slavery, women’s rights, and even universal health care are manifested through the collective. They could never have manifested without the consciousness to support it. YOU make a difference. You have no idea how your thoughts ripple out into the ethers and affect others, but know that they do. YOU Make A Difference As you enter the New Year, make your New Year’s Resolutions with hope and faith and a renewal of energy knowing that you do make a difference. Know that no matter what the outcome in the physical world, you have made a difference. Invoke the power of the divine to support you in your desires to let go of old, dead energy that is suppressive and oppressive. Let in the light, the joy, health, vitality and love that you know you are. Happy New Year, everyone! It’s a good one already. And so it is. Dave Krajovic David Krajovic MBA, CPA, CMT has advanced training in alternative healing techniques and is available for speaking and seminars on a variety of health, wellness and inspirational subjects. He and his wife Pat have created a new body of work combining contemporary and ancient teachings designed to gently yet powerfully move beyond the limits of human potential to ascend above limiting beliefs and attitudes to live in happiness, peace and prosperity.

Taking Ownership of Your Life Taking ownership of your life of course presupposes that you want to. If this seems like a daunting task, consider the alternative. If you don’t live your life the way you want to, you’ll be living your life the way others want you to, in someone else’s script. In these times of uncertainty and volatility, the only safe future is the one that you create and make yours. We hear repeatedly how important goals are, but why is that so? Setting goals and cultivating them creates a structure that supports us and propels us forward in taking ownership of what we want to create in and for our future. Once we identify something as a goal, we’ve already visualized that as a future we want. The act of visualizing and affirming what you want sets a part of the brain, the Reticular Activating System, into motion. It then starts scanning the environment for that which you have now identified as important. Because of this, it’s very important to have your goals be specific, detailed and timebound. Otherwise, you may get only part of what you want or in a context that you don’t want. Since goals are a manifestation of our identity and our purpose, of what we value and aspire to, it’s imperative to think about what you want your results to reflect and manifest. Goals must be anchored in that which is truly important to us - otherwise, they become a mere list on the refrigerator. Sometimes it’s helpful to envision the big picture first, and then work our way backwards into the smaller goal steps that are necessary to achieve the bigger picture. I find it helpful to periodically revisit a couple of questions as a check on how my actions towards goals are aligned with my vision and my values. January 2014
What values do my actions (or my company’s practices) currently reflect? What kind of world do I want to create or help to create, for myself and others? Another powerful dimension of setting and cultivating goals is that in large part, the benefit of having goals is what we learn in the process of accomplishing them. Who we become in the process of achieving our goals is as important, if not more so, than what we actually accomplish in the goal itself. Working with goals provides continuous learning and development, which is at the very heart of being able to take ownership of one’s life. We get to learn not only about specific areas of endeavor, but also about life in general, what’s useful and what’s not, what works and what doesn’t, how the pieces of the whole fit together. Plus we learn about new things we want or need to learn. And we learn how to improve at learning. Goals serve as an engine for movement and momentum, and become the milestones through which we actualize and manifest our potential. Because the learning occurs on multiple levels, you create a powerful multiplier effect towards both knowledge and wisdom when you work intentionally with goals. “If you do not live the life you believe, you will believe the life you live.” ~Zig Ziglar Where to start? First of all, if you haven’t yet made a list of all your accomplishments in 2012, please do so now! Particularly, if you tend toward high standards and/or perfectionism, this task will give you a solid sense of how much you really did accomplish this year, and an awareness of what you can build on for the coming year.
A few safety tips: 1. In your year-end review and thinking about the new year, remember to consider all areas of your life - family and relationships, work/career, physical health, learning and development, financial health, and spiritual life. 2. Beware of setting goals to master areas that are not natural strengths for you - this takes a lot of energy and often isn’t successful. It’s better to come up with solutions to handle your weaknesses than try to turn them into strengths. 3. Often people have goals in mind but don’t write them down. Write them down!!! This externalizes them and concretizes the structure of ownership. I used to be pretty lackadaisical about writing goals down until I learned that people who write their goals down are 80% more likely to achieve them than people who don’t! 4. Don’t discount small goals! We build habits of success one step at a time. May this year be the year when you break out and break through to the hope, joy, self-care, contribution, mastery, expansion, and true well-being that is yours to have! By Manya Arnold-Thomas May today there be peace within.. May you trust your highest power 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 our bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing and dance.. It is there for each and every one of you. P a g e 11

And what is it to work with love? It is to weave the cloth with treads drawn from our heart, even as if your beloved were to wear that cloth. It is to build a house with affection, even as if your beloved were to dwell in that house. It is to sow seeds with tenderness and reap the harvest with joy, even as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is to charge all things you fashion with a breath of your own spirit, and to know that all the blessed dead are standing about you and watching. Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half manâ€™s hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle manâ€™s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night. ~ Kahlil Gibran The Prophet

Operation Prayer Power – Science, Spirituality and Global Healing Part 5 This is the final part in the 5-part series on Operation Prayer Power which is on the cutting edge of science and spirituality. This global healing mission – many years ahead of its time -- is held each week at only five locations in the world. – including one in Royal Oak, Michigan. The Founder of Operation Prayer Power, Dr. George King, taught that the underlying crisis on this planet is the Spiritual Energy Crisis. This lack of Spiritual Energy -- or L-O-V-E – underlies all the other energy crises because it is greed and selfishness, rather than lack of resources that cause poverty, war, sickness and ignorance. Operation Prayer Power is a Spiritual tool we can all use to help balance the Spiritual Energy Crisis. Many people believe that prayer can perform miracles. Dr. King took this concept a step further and invented this miracle mission and the technology necessary to harness and radiate the power of prayer in a highly concentrated form. The resultant cosmic power, invoked through the prayer and mantra of the dedicated Operation Prayer Power attendees, acts like a healing balm on global trouble spots – bringing relief in many forms. A Chalice of Spiritual Power I have been fortunate to attend Operation Prayer Power since its inauguration in 1973, and this opportunity has been a golden thread in my life. I am sure if we were approached by a wizard who waved a magic wand and gave us a wish, it would be to bring more light, love and healing into our world. Dr. King has offered us this opportunity through Operation Prayer Power; he has given us this ‘chalice’ of spiritual power and taught us how to use its magical elixir. Operation Prayer Power Charging session On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, we are very pleased to invite you to observe an actual session of Operation Prayer Power. If you would then like to participate in the future, we would arrange a class to explain this Mission and initiate you into the Mantras we use in this wonderful global healing mission.

Weight Loss Wisdom Happy New Year everyone and welcome to 2014! If you are like most Americans, the beginning of a new year marks the beginning of a new diet. Similar to the illustrations used in the Chinese and Zodiac calendars, I imagine drawings of figures that look like Michelangelo’s statue of David or other well proportioned bodies illustrating the month of January for the American calendar. With the goal of re-sculpting out-of-shape bodies back into amazing figures hidden beneath layers of bad habits, New Year resolutions are made. Unfortunately, when resolutions to get in shape are only based on the simple formula of weight loss, success is usually fleeting. Within a few months, most people lose motivation and return to old habits, not realizing that what they really needed was a different, more sophisticated formula for losing weight. The simple formula for weight loss is based on the premise that when more calories are burned than ingested, weight is lost. While this seems to make sense, the human body is such a highly complex, incredibly intelligent organism that it often overrides this formula. There are many factors that skew this simple formula of weight loss. For example, the body changes the rate at which it burns fuel depending upon the amount of fuel provided. When fuel is abundantly available, it can burn fuel very easily, much as a drunken sailor might spend his money. Changing or reducing the amount of fuel provided affects the way the body burns the fuel, which is a major factor in any weight loss formula. The two major circumstances that influence how fuel is burned relate to food supply and the amount of exercise. When the body assumes that food is in 16
if they are derived from good oils that were overheated to their smoke point.
short supply due to skipping meals, the body burns fuel sparingly and weight is not lost - at least not at the rate we may be hoping for! When we exercise vigorously over an extended period of time, the body may also burn fuel sparingly or in a more highly tuned fashion of burning. In either of these circumstances, it may be difficult to achieve our weight loss goals and lose excess body fat. Therefore, any time we are trying to lose weight, we should not skip meals or exercise to extremes. The amount and quality of sleep we are able to obtain is another consideration when trying to lose weight. When you sleep less than five hours a night, your cortisol levels will not allow you to burn fat for fuel. Instead, you will burn muscle instead of fat because you are in the “fight or flight” adrenal mode. Yet another barrier to losing weight in today’s world stems from the body’s inherent wisdom to protect us and our organs. To understand how to work with this kind of protection, we need an understanding of why we have fat on the body in the first place. The first role of fat is the storage of energy. There is 2.25 times more energy stored per unit in fat than in a carbohydrate or a protein. Healthy fats like coconut oil, olive oil, and fats from healthy meats and vegetables are good for your body. On the other hand, trans-fats are not good for your body, no matter what their source. Trans-fats are both unusable and unhealthy even
The second major purpose of fat on the body is to store toxins and protect us from their damaging effects to our organs and other structures. A third purpose of fat is that it serves as an insulator that protects us from heat, cold, and shorting-out nerves in our brain and other parts of our nervous system. A fourth and very important purpose of fat is that it helps us look shapely and attractive to one another. To successfully eliminate excess body fats, you will first have to detoxify these fats. The body will not burn toxic fat because this would release poisons into your system. To eliminate toxins from fat, we have found through experience that the most effective program to do this safely is the Standard Process Cleanse program. This program utilizes special supplements and fibers to absorb the toxic elements that are released from the fats. This is extremely important. Other programs that do not incorporate the proper ingredients and protocol to detoxify the body safely and effectively may actually harm the body. This is a very unfortunate situation for anyone, especially when the goal of detoxification is to improve one’s health. To date, we have seen our patients lose many hundreds of pounds utilizing this program. In fact, we have one patient who has already lost over 400 pounds! Another patient reached her weight loss goals when utilizing the Standard Process Cleanse program after having trained for months for a marathon and not losing any weight. There are many variables in utilizing any health care program so there are no guarantees of the same results for everyone, but this has been highly successful for many people. Starting Jan. 8, we are sponsoring several workshops to explain our

weight loss systems. We will also introduce our new Five-Minute Free Weight Workout. Five minutes may give you up to five hours of burn time - what a deal that is!

A wonderful piece by Michael Gartner, editor of newspapers large and small and president of NBC News.
and I was born in 1938, and sometimes, at dinner, we’d ask how come all the neighbors had cars but we had none. “No one in the family drives,” my mother would explain, and that was that.
In 1997 he won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing. It is well worth reading. A few good chuckles are guaranteed.
But, sure enough , my brother turned 16 before I did, so in 1951 my parents bought a used 1950 Chevrolet from a friend who ran the parts department at a Chevy dealership downtown.
My father never drove a car. Well, that’s not quite right. I should say I never saw him drive a car. He quit driving in 1927, when he was 25 years old, and the last car he drove was a 1926 Whippet. “In those days,” he told me when he was in his 90s, “to drive a car you had to do things with your hands, and do things with your feet, and look every which way, and I decided you could walk through life and enjoy it or drive through life and miss it.” At which point my mother, a sometimes salty Irishwoman, chimed in: “Oh, baloney!” she said. “He hit a horse.” “Well,” my father said, “there was that, too.” So my brother and I grew up in a household without a car. The neighbors all had cars -- the Kollingses next door had a green 1941 Dodge, the Van Laninghams across the street a gray 1936 Plymouth, the Hopsons two doors down a black 1941 Ford -- but we had none. My father, a newspaperman in Des Moines, would take the streetcar to work and, often as not, walk the 3 miles home. If he took the streetcar home, my mother and brother and I would walk the three blocks to the streetcar stop, meet him and walk home together. My brother, David, was born in 1935, 18
But, sometimes, my father would say, “But as soon as one of you boys turns 16, we’ll get one.” It was as if he wasn’t sure which one of us would turn 16 first.
It was a four-door, white model, stick shift, fender skirts, loaded with everything, and, since my parents didn’t drive, it more or less became my brother’s car. Having a car but not being able to drive didn’t bother my father, but it didn’t make sense to my mother.. So in 1952, when she was 43 years old, she asked a friend to teach her to drive. She learned in a nearby cemetery, the place where I learned to drive the following year and where, a generation later, I took my two sons to practice driving. The cemetery probably was my father’s idea. “Who can your mother hurt in the cemetery?” I remember him saying more than once. For the next 45 years or so, until she was 90, my mother was the driver in the family. Neither she nor my father had any sense of direction, but he loaded up on maps -- though they seldom left the city limits -- and appointed himself navigator. It seemed to work. Still, they both continued to walk a lot. My mother was a devout Catholic, and my father an equally devout agnostic, an arrangement that didn’t seem to bother either of them through their 75 years of marriage. (Yes, 75 years, and they were deeply in love the entire time.) He retired when he was 70, and nearly
every morning for the next 20 years or so, he would walk with her the mile to St. Augustin’s Church. She would walk down and sit in the front pew, and he would wait in the back until he saw which of the parish’s two priests was on duty that morning. If it was the pastor, my father then would go out and take a 2-mile walk, meeting my mother at the end of the service and walking her home. If it was the assistant pastor, he’d take just a 1-mile walk and then head back to the church. He called the priests “Father Fast” and “Father Slow.” After he retired, my father almost always accompanied my mother whenever she drove anywhere, even if he had no reason to go along. If she were going to the beauty parlor, he’d sit in the car and read, or go take a stroll or, if it was summer, have her keep the engine running so he could listen to the Cubs game on the radio. In the evening, then, when I’d stop by, he’d explain: “The Cubs lost again. The millionaire on second base made a bad throw to the millionaire on first base, so the multimillionaire on third base scored.” If she were going to the grocery store, he would go along to carry the bags out -- and to make sure she loaded up on ice cream. As I said, he was always the navigator, and once, when he was 95 and she was 88 and still driving, he said to me, “Do you want to know the secret of a long life?” “I guess so,” I said, knowing it probably would be something bizarre. “No left turns,” he said. “What?” I asked. “No left turns,” he repeated. “Several years ago, your mother and I read an article that said most accidents that old people are in happen when they turn left in front of oncoming traffic. As you get older, your eyesight worsens, and you can lose your depth
Body Mind Spirit Guide |
perception, it said. So your mother and I decided never again to make a left turn.” “What?” I said again. “No left turns,” he said. “Think about it.. Three rights are the same as a left, and that’s a lot safer. So we always make three rights..” “You’re kidding!” I said, and I turned to my mother for support. “No,” she said, “your father is right. We make three rights. It works.” But then she added: “Except when your father loses count.” I was driving at the time, and I almost drove off the road as I started laughing. “Loses count?” I asked. “Yes,” my father admitted, “that sometimes happens. But it’s not a problem. You just make seven rights, and you’re okay again.” I couldn’t resist. “Do you ever go for 11?” I asked. “No,” he said “ If we miss it at seven, we just come home and call it a bad day. Besides, nothing in life is so important it can’t be put off another day or another week.” My mother was never in an accident, but one evening she handed me her car keys and said she had decided to quit driving. That was in 1999, when she was 90. She lived four more years, until 2003. My father died the next year, at 102. They both died in the bungalow they had moved into in 1937 and bought a few years later for $3,000. (Sixty years later, my brother and I paid $8,000 to have a shower put in the tiny bathroom -- the house had never had one. My father would have died then and there if he knew the shower cost nearly three times what he paid for the house.) He continued to walk daily -- he had me get him a treadmill when he was January 2014
101 because he was afraid he’d fall on the icy sidewalks but wanted to keep exercising -- and he was of sound mind and sound body until the moment he died. One September afternoon in 2004, he and my son went with me when I had to give a talk in a neighboring town, and it was clear to all three of us that he was wearing out, though we had the usual wide-ranging conversation about politics and newspapers and things in the news. A few weeks earlier, he had told my son, “You know, Mike, the first hundred years are a lot easier than the second hundred.” At one point in our drive that Saturday, he said, “You know, I’m probably not going to live much longer.” “You’re probably right,” I said. “Why would you say that?” He countered, somewhat irritated. “Because you’re 102 years old,” I said.. “Yes,” he said, “you’re right.” He stayed in bed all the next day. That night, I suggested to my son and daughter that we sit up with him through the night. He appreciated it, he said, though at one point, apparently seeing us look gloomy, he said: “I would like to make an announcement. No one in this room is dead yet” An hour or so later, he spoke his last words: “I want you to know,” he said, clearly and lucidly, “that I am in no pain. I am very comfortable. And I have had as happy a life as anyone on this earth could ever have.” A short time later, he died. I miss him a lot, and I think about him a lot. I’ve wondered now and then how it was that my family and I were so lucky that he lived so long.. I can’t figure out if it was because he walked through life, or because he quit taking left turns. “
Kindness I find that there is nothing more satisfying than doing something nice for someone else. A few weeks ago I was at the corner store, and therewas this lady in front of me in line. She seemed very confused when the cashier asked her to pay $38.00. She had about $5.00 in her wallet, and she began to cry. The cashier became very impatient and told her that she cannot buy these items because she did not have enough money. So, I told the cashier not to worry about it, that I would pay the difference. The cashier gave me a funny look, but I really felt for this woman. Anyway, I paid for my groceries and left the store. When I got outside, the lady was standing there. I asked her what was wrong. She said that she could not remember where she lived, and she began to cry. I named off a few streets around the area but she had no clue. While I was talking to the lady, a car pulled up and a woman jumped out of the car, frantic. It was this lady’s daughter. I explained that her mother could not remember where she lived. The daughter told me that she had Alzheimer’s Disease and that she had been wandering off a lot lately. Then the daughter noticed that her mother had 3 bags of groceries and wondered where she got the money to pay for them. I was not sure if I should tell her that I paid for them, but I did. The daughter offered to pay me back, I said no thank you. They did not look like a well- to- do family. So, the daughter said thank you and I said good bye. I felt so fulfilled and happy right through the day, because making others feel good makes me feel good. I know that if this situation happened again, I would do the same thing. Happy New Year!

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

Hormone Problems? The cause may not be what you think … Parasites may be the problem A large majority of the American people are suffering with hormone problems. This includes men as well as women ….and the cause may be parasites. Parasites are organisms that live inside us. Since these parasites are unable to produce food for themselves, they depend on us for their survival. Unfortunately, parasites harm human beings because they consume our food and nutrients, they can destroy our tissues and cells, and they produce toxic waste products that can make us very ill. These toxins can mimic many symptoms that lead us to believe we have many different diseases. So, you might ask yourself…What does this have to do with hormones? Well, I’ll tell you. It all has to do with sleep. You see, in order for the body to produce hormones, you need a certain amount of sleep. Normal hormone production starts 3 ½ hours into uninterrupted sleep. So if hormone production starts after 3 ½ hours… then to continue producing hormones…you need more than 3 ½ hours of sleep. That’s why a person needs to sleep at least 5 to 6 hours. The recommended amount of sleep is 8 to 9 hours per night…of uninterrupted sleep, that is. Well what does sleep have to do with parasites? It has a lot to do with them….One form of parasite that affects sleep is the Pinworm. Pinworm infections are extremely common. Occurring worldwide, it is estimated that there are more than 40 million cases in the United States each year, making it the most common parasite (worm) infection in America. Anyone can catch this parasite…but the infection occurs most frequently in school children between 5 to 10 years of age. The spread among family members is common. So, if your child gets this worm from school and January 2014
then comes home and sleeps with the parents…everyone can be infected. Tiny eggs deposited around the anus by a female worm spread the infection. When someone with pinworms scratches their perianal area, eggs may lodge under their fingernails and can be spread to anything he or she touches. Infested dust, clothing, bedding, or toys can also spread eggs. When someone else accidentally ingests these eggs, they also become infected. So, where am I going with this? Well what happens is your eyes, nose, ears and anus becomes infected...the most common symptom of pinworms is itching. It is worse at night and this could lead to difficulty getting a good nights sleep and can spread all over your bed sheets and cause you to itch all over. This can interrupt your sleep and cause you to wake up. Then guess what? Your hormones don’t reproduce therefore causing sleep deprivation, major depression, weight problems, mood swings, problems breathing , asthma, lack of concentration, memory, terrible fatigue, lack of sexual desire and even erectile dysfunction. There are over 2000 different kinds of parasites. Some of these parasites grow to be 30 feet long and can live in our bodies for up to 30 years. These parasites can grow anywhere throughout the body. They can move under the skin and under your scalp, causing you to itch at night…or throughout the day. I hope that this article will get you to think outside of the box as to helping you restore your health. A better life is around the corner. God Bless, Dr. Michael D. Reggish, D.C., N.D.

Catholic Hairdryer In parochial school students are taught that lying is a sin. However, instructions also advised that using a bit of imagination was OK to express the Truth differently without lying. Below is a perfect example of those teachings: Getting a Hairdryer Through Customs. An attractive young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her, ‘Father, may I ask a favor?’ ‘ ‘Of course child. What may I do for you?’ ‘Well, I bought my mother an expensive hair dryer for her birthday. It is unopened but well over the Customs limits and I’m afraid they’ll confiscate it.Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me? Hide it under your robes perhaps?’ ‘I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you, I will not lie.’ ‘With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.’ When they got to Customs, she let the priest go first. The official asked, ‘Father, do you have anything to declare?’ ‘From the top of my head down to my waist I have nothing to declare.’ The official thought this answer strange, so asked, ‘And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?’ ‘I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.’ Roaring with laughter, the official said, ‘Go ahead, Father. Next please!’

Rock of the Month: Snowflake Obsidian With so much snow on the ground this winter, it seems appropriate to look to a stone named after the snowflake for guidance and insight! Snowflake Obsidian is a black stone embedded with light patches of white that resemble snowflakes. If you are interested in using a stone to assist you in connecting to the forces of nature, Snowflake Obsidian would be a good choice. This stone helps us recognize that guidance and assisctance from the world of nature are always available to us. It assists with finding and eliciting support from our animal totems. We thus become more attuned to the flow of subtle energies in our environment through the support of this stone.

Snowflake Obsidian can assist us in recognizing the synchronicities in our everyday life and see the “meaning” in messages we get from our experiences. That being said, it is not a stone that is strikingly good for gazing, but is a stone that can help us on our journey to health and wholeness. Snowflake Obsidian works synergistically with Lapis Lazoli, Siberian Blue Quartz and Scolecite to increase psychic attunement. A good affirmation to use when meditating with this stone is: “Spirit, as I walk this earth walk, I ask for assistance from the forces of the Universe and all Beings of Light. Please assist me in understanding all that I need for my healing and enlightenment. In full faith, thank you!”

DON’T DEAL WITH PAIN… REMOVE IT! How do you deal with pain? When many of us are in pain, we want it gone as quickly as possible. As a society, we want instant gratification. Therefore, we often turn to potentially addictive pain killers and muscle relaxers that may have negative side effects. There is an epidemic in this country of individuals who become addicted to pain killers, which can lead them to stronger drugs, including heroin. There HAS to be a better solution rather than risking one’s life to alleviate pain. Even if you never become addicted, painkillers may not be as safe as you think. A panel that shaped the FDA’s policy for testing the safety and effectiveness of painkillers was funded by major pharmaceutical companies. While these medications might give quick relief, they do not target the source of the pain. Instead, they simply block pain receptors, making you feel numb. The source of the pain still exists; pain is only a symptom. When it is ignored, the conscious awareness of the brain to heal is challenged. Alternative medicine seeks to find and remove the source of pain. The source may be physical trauma, but it may also be emotional pain stored physically. Once this source is discovered, a variety of therapies may be used, including massage therapy. A common misconception is that the primary benefit of massage is relaxation. While true, a good massage therapist can offer much more which should not be overlooked. Massage has been proven to be successful with relieving the symptoms of many health conditions such as sciatica, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, low back pain, frozen shoulder, headaches, and more. Massage can also facilitate the body’s own natural healing process. Most importantly, regular massage therapy can be helpful for AVOIDING injury or pain from emerging in the first place. If you are in pain, think twice before resorting to medication for a “quick fix.” Your body will thank you for making the investment in a healthier alternative. Glenn J.

It is true that you are what you eat. To lose more weight this year, stop eating fat storing foods and eat fat burning foods! An efficiently working metabolism helps with weight loss. Having an efficient metabolism means correctly digesting foods and burning stored body fat for fuel. Food digestion requires the proper combination of digestive enzymes produced by the stomach, liver and pancreas. Failure to digest efficiently results in the undigested food being stored as unwanted body fat. Personalized testing can determine the exact nutrients needed for efficient digestion. All carbohydrates that are consumed become sugar, which is fat storing. Plus, sugar is hidden in all processed and man-made foods. Fruits, vegetables and all grains are natural carbohydrates. Your body converts natural, processed and man-made carbohydrates like potatoes, corn, rice, oats, pop, fries, chips, breads, pasta, cakes, candies, juices and cookies into sugar. Eating more sugar and/or carbohydrates than your body needs causes unwanted weight. Your body needs 80-100 grams of carbohydrates daily for fuel, not the 300-600 commonly consumed. Carbohydrates are the kindling to the fire. The body burns them quickly and then burns the slower burning fuel, fat. The body cannot burn stored fat when excess carbohydrates are eaten. Instead, the excess is stored around your waist, hips and thighs. Protein is a fat burning food that increases your metabolism, helps with weight loss, and builds muscle tissue. Protein is broken down into amino acids that make up your body.
Avoiding protein or not eating protein can increase weight. Protein from both animal and plant sources can provide energy and stabilize blood sugar. Eating fat does not make you fat. It actually increases weight loss. Insufficient good fat in your diet from fish oil, chia or flax seeds can cause low energy, poor concentration, dry skin and unwanted weight. Eating the wrong fat, or following a low fat diet deprives the body of needed essential fatty acids. A healthy body is composed of 25% fat. Your body uses this fat in all cell membranes, and in nerve and brain cells. The fat found around the abdomen and thighs is caused by the consumption of bad fats and excess sugars, not essential fatty acids. To lose weight, eat good fat, protein and eliminate excessive sugars from your diet. The key to weight loss is a balanced diet of protein, vegetables, fruits and good fats, and drinking ½ your body weight in ounces of healthy living water. Combining good food choices with a simple exercise program and healthy water can result in weight loss. There is help to end the frustration from failed New Year’s weight loss programs. A digestive evaluation, plus a dietary analysis based on body type, age, weight and height can help determine what foods you need to create a New You in the New Year!

My Return to Detroit as a Sexologist I am home in the metro Detroit area where I was born and raised. I fled at the ripe age of 20 to perhaps run away from some troubles that we all have. However 20 years later, I know my departure was a longing of selfdiscovery. The pioneers embarked on journeys in search of gold, vast nature, or to discover pieces of themselves known only in different landscapes. If you asked Naturalist, John Muir at the age of 22, when he took his first botany class at the University of Wisconsin, if he intended to define the environmental movement and co-found the Sierra Club, he probably would have looked at you with a gaze of curious intensity. Muir described the day in his autobiography. “This fine lesson charmed me and sent me flying to the woods and meadows in wild enthusiasm.” (*Muir, John (1916). The Story of My Boyhood and Youth. Houghton Mifflin Co.) In 1992 at the age of 20, I was protesting Playboy magazine’s presence at Central Michigan University to interview women for their centerfold series featuring the top ten party schools. At the time if you asked had I considered becoming a sexologist, I would have squinted and perhaps defensively asked, “What do you mean by that?” Yet years before in my developmental stages, like Muir, I was wild with enthusiasm for my discoveries of sexuality. I read neighborhood kids the ‘Where Did I Come From’ book, after my parents read it to me and later cautioned to keep it in the house for our family. I taught some young girlfriends the joys of self-pleasuring. People just feel safe talking to me about their deepest matters of love and sex. The Playboy controversy came and went, as did my viewpoints about porn and experiences throughout my life out West. I found solace in backcountry Rocky Mountain excursions and the Yo-
semite wilderness that Muir eloquently writes about. In nature I seek soothing for my soul and support to confidently walk my path as a sexologist. Nature is home and connecting to my natural sexual self is all I’ve known. I’ve been blessed with fulfilling early sexual experiences allowing for openness and exploration. I don’t take those for granted because many of my clients struggle to regain a healthy sense of sexuality. I have struggled also with relationship, intimacy, marriage, divorce, low sex drive, addictions. Coming through the other side of suffering has strengthened my resolve to be true to myself and ‘go for it’. The wild enthusiasm Muir expressed abounds as my sexology career unfolds and my deepest joy comes in offering teachings in all forms. I am honored to witness others connect to their natural sexuality and manifest passionate relationships. Returning to metro Detroit is ideal as I launch my Natural Sexuality programs this January 2014. I could not have planned it two years ago, when my thriving San Francisco practice became bi-coastal, and I opened an office in an upper west side New York City neighborhood. Now I am home in Detroit, which needs Love, and I feel called to spread it and empower others to do the same. Information, resources, and even some techniques can be found out there - on my website, at the local romance store, outside of ourselves. My technique as a sexologist stands in helping you connect, naturally, to your sexual energy. I have learned to do this in my own unique pioneering way, as I’ve navigated the woods of the sexual self with wild enthusiasm. There are details about my groundbreaking technique and workshops on my website, listed below. A century beyond Muir’s time, life is different. Yet in nature, and the home within, we find solace in the familiar. From that place of safety we can understand ourselves and others. Our

patterns that bind loose their grip. We give more and receive easier. We feel the flow of our natural sexual energy. This energy can be used for so much more than sex. Its creative life force energy is available at any given moment, if we allow it. Muir as Naturalist and I as Sexologist both pioneer in uncharted woods and navigate a landscape for others to relish the beauty of nature. I am honored to share with others what I have discovered about the beautiful landscape of our human sexuality and its full potential.

Blood Donation A wealthy Arab Sheik was admitted to hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his type of blood in case the need arose. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn’t be found locally, so, the call went out. Finally a Scotsman was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman in appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, 5 carats of diamonds, and $50,000 dollars. A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. The hospital telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate more of his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card and a box of Black Magic chocolates. The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had before. He phoned the Arab and asked him: “I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me another BMW, diamonds and money ... but you only gave me a thank-you card and a box of chocolates.” To this the Arab replied: “Aye laddie, but I now have Scottish blood in ma veins, doin things a wee bit different”.
Laughter is good medicine How to Tell the Sex of a Fly A woman walked into the kitchen to find her Husband stalking around with a fly swatter. “What are you doing?” She asked. “Hunting Flies” He responded. “Oh! Killing any?” She asked. “Yep, 3 males, 2 Females,” he replied. Intrigued, she asked. “How can you tell them apart?” He responded,”3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone”. 28
This Year Will Be Different Now that you’ve made your New Year’s resolutions, how do you keep them? You’ve made New Year resolutions before, and by February, you’re frustrated and have given up keeping them. You feel like a failure again. Having a goal and not accomplishing it is a common cycle. So, how do you obtain your goals? One of the first things to look at is priorities. For example, perhaps you are wanting to make more money, yet being home with the kids is important too. Discover which makes your heart sing. When you focus on what makes your heart sing, you are in the flow of the Divine. One way to do this is to verbally state your objective and see how good it feels -- not how you think your heart or body feels. Do you feel positive or blah? Or, do you feel resistant or negative? In this case, for example, I might say, “ My goal is to make more money.” Then check in and see how I feel. I would then say, “My goal is to be a loving wife and mother,” and see how that feels. Which feels more positive? Does one make your heart sing? The one which makes your heart sing, or at least is more positive, is a priority in your life goals. Let’s say it turns out to be, as in my case, being a loving wife and mother. Great! I now have a goal that I don’t feel I “should” do to be a good or successful person, nor is it something others think I should do to be successful. It’s MY goal, in alignment with MY SOUL. Yay! Does this mean giving up the other possible goal? No. All it means is that one has priority and is a focus point for more energy to flow that way. You can always keep the other as a goal of lower priority, and therefore, can choose to give it slightly less energy. Keeping your primary goals to about three is wise; focusing on only three does not spread your energy too thin. There is no conflict as to where to put your focus. When we are in the flow of obtaining our highest good, going for our primary life goal(s), energy is released and there is a greater flow of energy for focusing on the lower-priority goals that are less needed to fulfill our life goal(s). As the energy flows, you get more of what it’s flowing owards, and more energy itself to work with. So, those secondary goals are becoming fulfilled also, possibly more
Body Mind Spirit Guide |
and more quickly, effortlessly. Just because someone thinks your goal should be to finish school, what if that’s not the accomplishment that takes you towards your highest good? Be true to yourself, not your parents, friends, mate or children. Once you have three primary goals in order of priority, write them down every day. You can do this in the morning, at night, or both. It reminds your subconscious to direct your energy towards those goals. It also vibrationally and energetically attracts the fulfillment of these goals to you. It literally starts working on transforming your vibrational energy signature as well. Life changes around you and opportunities can appear. Reviewing your goals every day reminds you of your goals in the order of their importance so that when you have to choose, you have some direction in your choices. Taking time every day to picture yourself living your accomplished goal is also helpful in allowing universal energy to be attracted and directed to creating that life, and reprogramming your human identity/story to include that desire. If you can picture yourself having that life, you can live it. Often, we have limited beliefs that keep us stuck in our old programs, our old stories. Hypnosis is a great way to change those self-imposed limitations. If you are not aware of them, therapy can help or deepen the knowing and assist you in releasing your subconscious limiting beliefs and scripts. These are just a couple ways to get started on fulfilling the New Year resolutions and goals you make for yourself. Next month, we will take a look at other small steps you can take to keep your resolutions and accomplish your goals. Remember, the whole universe wants your highest good, so go along with the flow, prioritize, visualize and increase your joy!

Take Some Time to Think What matters most in life? A new car? A big house? How about inner peace and love and wisdom? Without them, nothing else really matters. But how do you achieve inner peace? Through perspective and self awareness. And what kind of love am I talking about? Not the kind you display on a necklace or T-shirt, but a deep caring and concern for yourself and for others. A sharing of emotion and affection with honest, deep rooted intentions. I say ‘caring for yourself’ because it’s important to know who you are and love and accept yourself. Self love often gets confused with one’s ego. There is a lot of “me fIrst” in the world these days. But once you realize that life is not about what you can do for yourself, but how you can help others, your life takes a turn and there is meaning and purpose. The best thing you can do for yourself is to realize you are a miracle, full of possibility and never give up. One of the hardest lessons I have learned and everyone should realize, is that life can change in an instant. We shouldn’t take friends or loved ones for granted. It’s sad how a couple that has been together for many years starts to treat each other with little respect. Friends and family just assume you will always be there and people stop making an effort to make life special, or let you know that they are thinking about you. So much energy is put into comparing ourselves to others. Who said life is a contest? It’s all perspective anyway, so if you decide what you have or who you are is enough, who can tell you it isn’t? I used to think that “babies were miracles” -- now I realize we are all miracles and every day we wake up is a miracle and it shouldn’t be wasted in angst and anger. It always amazes me when someone dies and people say, “What a shame.” Spoiler alert: we are all going to die and the shame is in not telling that person before they left this earth how much you cared for them, and knowing you did the most you could for them. I realize that putting these thoughts into action is not simple. It takes effort, and we are often caught up in the day-to-day activities that we think are necessary to get by. But if you can find some time to think about life every day, give thanks for what you have and be nice to those in your life, you will begin to see and feel a change.

Psychic Insights Putting light on your life path Many of you have seen a psychic or a spiritual adviser before and received insight to your future. But you may ask yourself, “Is my future set in stone? Do I need a psychic at all?” Sometimes I hear people say they are afraid of psychics because of what may be unveiled in the reading. Maybe you’re afraid that your future may not be as bright as desired or that there will be difficulties ahead that you don’t want to know about. I have found that knowing what may lay ahead can help you to make better decisions, or help you to cope with issues that otherwise would overwhelm you. Surely you don’t want anyone to dash your hopes or dreams. So, why consult a psychic at all? You may be worried that they won’t be very accurate or perhaps that they may be too accurate! Fear is one of our biggest obstacles in life. We are here to learn and evolve through the Karma (lessons) that we brought with us into this life; and along the way we sometimes find ourselves creating new karma in the current life experience. A good psychic can help you get to the next spiritual level and may even look into your past life and see what lessons you choose to learn in this life. When I have a client that has a reoccurring problem, psychically looking into the past life usually reveals the answers. When consulting a psychic, stay open minded, but try not to disclose too much information. However, it is always good to confirm information that the intuitive picks up on, but by telling them too much you can bring about a possibility of an inaccurate reading. I always include this phrase in my meditations before starting a reading, “No hopes, January 2014
wishes, fears or opinions of my own will interfere with this reading. Please allow only the true life path to be revealed.” For psychics reading this article, you may use this affirmation; I have found it very helpful to stay in tune with a client’s true life path. You have heard the term “karma” many times, but do you know what it means? The word Karma is from ancient Sanskrit in India, and translated to English it describes the concept of taking action or the deeds that you do. Overtime it has been used to describe life’s lessons, because after all, your deeds or actions in each life will affect your path in the afterlife and the next life. We can create both negative and positive karma, and yes, we can create karma in this life as well as bring forth lessons to be learned from our last life. We do want to do our best in life because at the end -- there will be a test! Well not really, but we will have to look at our life and see what we did not accomplish, or maybe we have created more lessons (Karma) to be dealt with in the next life. Kind of like falling back a grade in school if we decide not to do our homework or skip a few lessons. Ignoring issues or lessons does not work even in the afterlife. Consulting a good intuitive can be very helpful, much like hiring a tutor! A good psychic will look at your life path and unveil your past, present and future life lessons and accomplishments. Putting a light on your life path may help you accomplish your karmic goals and make enlightened decisions. Many times, people veer off the path they had chosen before entering this life and get caught up in sadness, despair or unrealistic expectations. You may feel unsatisfied with life and you may be left with always waiting for something or someone else to fulfill your wants and needs. Many people who have come to me have asked, “Can you see what my
purpose in this life is?” This is another advantage in seeking a good intuitive, as they can give you insight into your purpose for going through the sometimes difficult issues of life. Maybe you are not realizing why you have chosen to come back and experience life again -- after all, it is difficult sometimes. Sometimes we get off track, following what is expected of us instead of what we have chosen for ourselves in the before-life decisions. It is like when your parents insist you become a doctor, but your inner desire is to become a poet or a musician. You get lost in others expectations of your life. Seeking a good intuitive can give you confirmation on what you already may feel within yourself, and in a sense, give you permission to follow your dreams. Consulting an intuitive adviser can help you stay on track and realize that even when things are not going as you anticipated, you may have chosen this lesson. Your psychic can help you gain perspective and help you achieve your goals and lessons. Infinite love and peace, Wendy Powers Clairvoyant, TV & Radio Personality

ASCENSION Ascension is the buzz word of the spiritual/metaphysical community. It is simply identifying the earth’s clearing of all the negative energies that have built up within the land, waters and the air of our planet. The purpose of the earth’s clearings is to discharge those energies through the processes that we are experiencing as the earth changes. Medically, there are often many different pathways to the same diagnosis. Global warming, created by man, is another pathway that has accelerated these clearings that are also contributing to the ascension of the earth. According to many, including Edgar Cayce, (also known as the Sleeping Prophet) the earth is moving from third dimensional energies to the fifth dimensional frequency and thus the earth’s vibrational frequencies are ascending. The fifth dimensional energies are the energies of unconditional love. According to the healers and teachers I work with from the higher dimensions, the dark forces will cease to reside on this planet. Once the ascension is completed, all of us who do reside on this planet will have to be vibrating at the fifth dimensional level or above. Thus we must clear all of our negative and lower vibrational energies to do so. All of us were fully aware of this entire process before we incarnated into this lifetime. Each one is here for very specific purposes. Some of us made plans to go all the way, so to speak and to move with the earth’s energies into the fifth dimension. They will then be referred to as ascended masters. However, I have seen clients who did not originally sign up for an ascension path, decide to go beyond the goals originally set before entering this lifetime, and move onto an ascension path. Each experience any one of us has, whether it is internal dynamics through our own thoughts and/or emotions, 38
whether it is interactions with another person or situation, and/or circumstance we find ourselves in, it is all a result of our own creation! We co-create with others and by doing so we create the greatest opportunity for growth for all. We are powerful! The healers and teachers I work with have definitively stated that man was created to be a powerful being and a creator. What has happened too often to too many is that mankind has succumbed to the often horrendous experiences they have undergone during lifetime after lifetime until those energies, still present in their energy fields, have caused self- sabotage which creates self-doubt and feelings of unworthiness. We can experience periods when we feel great and in charge of our own destiny. We can then be catapulted off that mountain of accomplishment into despair or other forms of fear through unexpected experiences that rattle us to our core. These experiences can ultimately generate feelings of powerlessness and subsequently victimization. Throughout history mankind has envisioned itself here to conquer the earth. This mindset has all but destroyed this planet which interestingly enough parallels the Avatar movie, which I strongly urge everyone to see. We are here to master ourselves. We do this through karmic experiences which we must move through with awareness, and we must respond to those experiences with the highest level of wisdom, love and compassion we can manage. This is also true for contracts we agree to. Contracts are as binding spiritually as they are legally here on the earth. I have seen clients’ teachers re-orchestrate a contract from what was originally agreed upon. When the client was sinking under the circumstances of the original contract, the contract was then reconstructed to accomplish the original outcome desired, thus saving the person from failure and loss within the context of
accomplishing their spiritual goals. I have heard those who speak from high spiritual places acknowledge the great respect and unconditional love they hold for each one of us. They are well aware of the vicissitudes our earth experience can present, triggering all of those negatively stored emotions and patterns. When we are able to re-frame those experiences and look at each one as a gift, an opportunity to soar when we are able to hold onto the Light, the Love, the Wisdom of however we perceive the Divine to be, we expand spiritually. For each experience is a mirror of us reflecting aspects of ourselves back to ourselves in some way to help us become more aware, and to help us learn, resulting in growth. Each and every experience is also a reflection of how powerful we are. What is that old saying? “We are not given more than we can handle!” If we reach higher spiritually each and every time we are experiencing challenges of every magnitude, and we are able to view these experiences as opportunities to deepen and expand our spirituality, we will expand into the LIGHT! Our lives are the classroom of our souls. Your experiences, internally and externally, are the tools of your spiritual growth, just as the text book is the tool of the classroom used for our academic learning and accomplishment. We are responsible for the life we have created. When things happen that we do not want or like, we cannot blame it on someone else or something else. This, literally, makes us into victims. We cannot have it both ways. We then, conversely, take all of the credit when life goes as we desire. That is part of selfmastery, to accept complete responsibility for ourselves. Energy work is another way to assist our clearing negative emotions and patterns. It is a tool to help clear those

energies more swiftly and completely rather than just walking through experiences. As our vibrations rise, we are able to connect more easily with our teachers.
Boudreaux was in New Orleans.
Each of us has a spiritual team of spiritual beings who came to this planet with us. They are here to support and guide us through the challenges and tests that are incumbent with our life experiences. Most religions teach us about the guardian angel who is ever at our side. This is true, one

or more angels can be on our team. The Higher Self and the Council of Elders are higher vibrational Beings who form the administrative part of our team. The council is composed of teachers we work with on the other side between lives. My work, Dr. Michael Newton’s work as disclosed in his books, Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls, and Dr. Brian Weiss’ work in his publications beginning with Many Lives Many Masters, as well as the work of others, have verified this. Our teachers want more than anything to connect with us and help us accomplish all or more of the plans that we have made for this journey. At the beginning of this New Year, with the earth changes and global warming accelerating, we will have many challenges. We can turn these challenges into opportunities to learn, grow and even soar, if we can endeavor to get out of our own way. If we will embrace the Divine within, allowing each challenge we face to deepen and expand our spiritual essence until we are fully aligned with the Divine Consciousness, we will succeed in graduating into the higher dimensions. We are never alone! We are deeply loved and applauded for the journeys we have each agreed to take upon this planet. Lynne Browning-Krajenke L.M.S.W., C.Ht.

90% of all Resolutions Fail. Learn How to Beat the Odds! With the coming of the New Year, many people are making New Year’s resolutions. Some wish to lose weight, others to quit smoking, many to start an exercise program and others to eliminate unwanted habits. We often set goals and start out with the best of intentions. We are usually successful for a while and believe we are going to accomplish what we set out to do. Unfortunately, after only a few short weeks, we often find that we have gone back to our old ways. Not only have we not achieved our goal, but in addition, our self-esteem has suffered and we do not feel very good about ourselves. Why didn’t our resolutions succeed? We truly wanted to make the change and we were successful for a while, but then something went wrong and we found ourselves back to square one. The problem is, when we made the decision to change the behavior we were strictly relying on our will power. Only our conscious mind was involved in the decision. We totally ignored our subconscious mind. While the conscious mind was saying, “I am going to change this habit,” the subconscious part of the mind was saying, “I don’t think so.” You may not realize this, but whenever there is a battle between our conscious mind and our subconscious mind, the subconscious wins every time. If you desire to make a permanent change, it is necessary to have both the conscious mind and the subconscious part of our brain working together in the decision. As an example, you may decide you are going to quit smoking. You tell yourself, “This is it, no more cigarettes.” Your conscious mind thinks this is a great decision; you’ll be healthier, you’ll save money and you will feel better. Your subconscious, however, is thinking you’ve

tried this before and it didn’t work then so it’s not likely to work now. You wanted to quit just as much last year as you do now, but look at what happened. You were back to smoking in a very short time. Unless you can somehow convince your subconscious mind that things are going to be different now, it is not likely that you will succeed. You may ask yourself, “Is there any way I can quit this iserable habit?” The answer is, “Yes!” There is a way, and it is not that difficult. Hypnosis is an excellent method to help you truly get rid of unwanted habits such as smoking or overeating. Why does hypnosis work when other methods fail? It is because when one is hypnotized, the positive messages and affirmations to change the habit go directly to the subconscious mind. We have a critical part of our brain that censors new information if it is not in line with what we already know. However, with hypnosis, we are able to bypass this critical part of the brain and allow the positive and helpful messages to go directly to the subconscious, where they will be accepted and acted upon without resistance. We can completely sidestep the critical part of our conscious mind. As a result, we will have both our conscious and subconscious working together for the best outcome. If this is true, you may ask: “Why don’t more people use hypnosis to get rid of these unwanted habits or behaviors?” The reason is that many people do not understand hypnosis. Often they have some fear about it. This is very unfortunate because many peer review studies show hypnosis does, indeed, work, and in fact works very well for a wide variety of problems, including smoking, overeating, phobias and much more. In addition, it is quite safe. You are always aware of what is occurring, and will not do anything that goes against your values or moral beliefs. If you were ever asked to do so you would not comply, or would simply come out of trance. You will not do anything in hypnosis that you wouldn’t do in your normal waking state. Hypnosis is like having a daydream. You are very relaxed and your mind is focused. In fact, people who have been hypnotized often say it felt so good they didn’t want to come out of this very relaxed state.

He is a certified hypnotherapist and has an MA in Clinical Psychology and in Counseling and has been trained in past-life regression. Call: 248-688-6469.

Attacked Most people at some time in their life feel that they are under attack. Physical violence is easy to explain. Legal actions and financial attacks are also common and understood. Other attacks are harder to explain or to talk about. Many types of attacks carry or their results a stigma, like mental illness. As they become more common they also become easier to talk about. At one time very few people had heard of identify theft, yet it has always been around. Today it is so common that almost everyone knows someone that has experienced it. There are many types of protection. At the center of the discussion is the probability of an attack. In this county today there are several types of attacks with a high probability. Remember the old saying “just because you are paranoid does not mean that nobody is out to get you.” There are physical, emotional, economic, mental, spiritual, legal and etheric attacks. People who “feel” the energy will often notice attacks from energy sources that cannot be see or felt by most people. Let us modify that a little, most people

either do not feel these attacks, or do not understand that they are being attacked or are unwilling to admit that they are experiencing an attack for fear of being thought crazy or not macho. They will feel the attacks as indigestion, unexplained tension, nervousness or a strong desire to leave. The more a person is “in tune” with the energy or open to the spiritual and emotional world, the more they will be able to identify the attacks. They may be able to identify the type of attack. They may be able to identify the source. All experiences are filtered through our belief systems, knowledge base and experiences. It is said, by some psychological historians, that the Native Americans were unable to see Columbus’ ships approaching because they had never seen or even heard of canoes that big. They could not perceive what their eyes were seeing until the ships were so close that they could not be mistaken. The more you understand about a threat, the easier it is to protect yourself. In boxing there is an old axiom, the best protection from a punch is to not be there when it lands. In other words, avoiding an attack is better than protecting yourself and protecting yourself is better than healing. There are many types of metaphysical attack and many sources. Remember, like everything, these are filtered through your belief system and knowledge base. Some people react to some of these as “anyone who believes in that is a superstitious fool.” In ancient times they were grouped together as demons. Among the metaphysical attacks are past-life, unresolved situations from a prior life. Another is energy beings that have failed to transition to the next world or life, often referred to as ghosts. Spirits from another world are yet another group. There are also many reasons that these entities are attacking. In most cases they are not attacking at all. They
want help, they are lost. We had a client who was often visited by young entities that saw her bright energy and follow it trying to transition to the next life. When there was a major disaster with loss of life, this person would feel it even before the event is reported and would have nightmares. They are, in essence, a lighthouse guiding the children to the next life. By understanding her role, the nightmares went away. She still feels the events but instead of being attacked she now rallies and becomes the guide she was meant to be. Often they are trying to get your attention. There was a lesson you were to learn and you missed the point. They keep replaying the lesson with enough changes so that you might learn this time. Around battle field there are usually lost entities. They are doing what they were last told to do, protect the land. If the energy worker protects themselves against the entity, the entity remains. If the energy worker releases the entity then that entity is no longer there to attack, and the entity can go on to their next life, a true win-win scenario. There are a number of classes in spirit release. Several of the energy workers we know specialize in spirit release or past-life resolution. Releasing or resolving is the best protection. Other forms of protection are a constant vigil. If you let down your guard, you will be attacked. If you release or resolve them there is no entity to guard against.

Spiritual Horoscopes Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) – Happy birthday Capricorn! This is a powerful time for expressing your dreams. Meditate to visualize what you want to achieve this year. Also, look within to see what could be blocking your ability to receive. You can be your own worst critic, so this inner work will help you let go of self-sabotage and make dreams a reality! Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) – You are exploring issues of power, and also vulnerability. Letting go of control to the Universe can bring up painful memories of when parents or authority figures didn’t come through for you. Meditate to forgive those past wounds, so you can be flexible to your soul’s guidance instead of rigidly adhering to your intellect and will power. As old energy moves up and out, be physically active, with sports or vigorous yoga. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – Mars is making you feel quite sexy and powerful! Speaking up for your needs in intimate relationships about emotions, money and sexuality will help build trust within partnerships and self-confidence in you. You may also need to stand up to friends or colleagues who have strong opinions that differ from yours. This doesn’t mean fighting or giving in, but knowing you can hold your own truth and still be loved and appreciated! art & hand crafted items new age botanica supplies fair trade treasures metaphysical workshops psychics

Aries (March 21 – April 19) – January is a time to balance career with relationships. You can feel pulled in many directions that all feel important. Meditate to create a list of priorities and let your partner know your numerous duties and plans to carry them out. Also, schedule time with him/her so that s/he feels secure. In this way, you won’t feel pulled by your relationship. In fact, that quiet bonding time will empower you for the tasks ahead! Taurus (April 20 – May 20) – Ever heard the saying, “Your body believes every word you say?” Think about how your words and thoughts impact your physical health. For instance, “I can’t stand that”, can lead to knee problems. Or, “I’m tired of this situation”, can bring on fatigue. Be alert to the messages you send your body and replace them with empowering ideas! Also, is it possible to start a yoga, meditation or stress reduction group at work? Gemini (May 21 – June 20) – Start the New Year by releasing resentments that cause lack of trust. The Universe wants to bring you relationships that are deep and true, but it can’t if you’re blocking your heart with old hurts and fears. Meditate to connect with forgiveness energy that will unburden you and put you in the flow of divine abundance with love and money!

“Together we will unveil your Life Plan and Soul’s Purpose.” Over 20 years of counseling experience.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) – It’s an ongoing effort to release childhood/ family “stuff” that bogs down your current relationships! Meditate with your partner to be in the present moment together. Assure him/her that you’re working to heal old emotional wounds. Partnered or not, go through drawers, closets, basement, attic, or garage and get rid of junk! This type of 3rd dimensional cleaning will also clean your heart! Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) – You don’t like to show people your vulnerable side. As a Leo, you prefer to meet life with all your strengths, as the fierce and lovely lion! But inner turmoil can take its toll on your mind and body. Open up to your spiritual guides -- whether a trusted friend/mentor, healer or angel presence – and allow your wounds to be exposed, cleansed and healed. You will feel serene and will shimmer with vibrant health once again! Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) – You are so self-critical, and that affects your relationships. The Universe is challenging you to improve your self worth by becoming aware of the negative messages you constantly run through your head. Write down your yucky thoughts as they come up this month. Then, burn the list! Your insights and healing make it easier to bring your full, authentic self to people for more fulfilling bonds! Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) – You aren’t often defensive, but you can be passive-aggressive. Powerful Mars is in your sign, challenging you to draw healthy boundaries in areas of family, friends and money issues. Be clear about your needs, and about what doesn’t work for you anymore. This will make you more “real” and actually improve relationships, since you’re no longer simmering beneath your surface. Try intense yoga classes or vigorous workouts to release tension. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) – Your mind is filled with land mines this

month! Be wary about sudden conclusions. Your subconscious is triggered by people around you, but they are only acting as agents to shed light on deeper issues. Meditate to become centered. Journal your feelings. Write until you get past the surface and see what the Universe is revealing. Free yourself from entire patterns of unhappiness rather than be stuck on one instance that is only an example of the pattern! Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) – It’s important to surround yourself with like-minded people. It is exhausting to hide your authentic self! Meditate on acquaintances and see which ones actually resonate with your spirituality and your truth. Also, look at your activities and see if they feel your soul. Examine goals and be sure they’re a path that leads to fulfillment. Make the changes you need to make if things are out of alignment!

When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, ‘It’s no use, Grandpa. The mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights.’ January 2014
Using Stones to Set Goals for 2014 This time of year is a good time to go within, re-evaluate our goals and make adjustments. Oftentimes, we may feel stuck as if our lives aren’t going in the direction we had hoped for. The New Year is a perfect time to look at the thoughts we hold onto that may limit our highest potential. Limiting beliefs come from ourselves or outside influences such as families or society. For example, if you have the repetitious thought that you are not good enough, this negative energy builds up a deep insecurity within. We are all children of the Divine and we are deserving of the infinitely abundant universe. Our limiting beliefs shape our present and hold us back from what we truly deserve. Once we can honestly look at our fears as little helpers, we can change these limiting beliefs into thoughts that enhance our current reality. One great way of doing this is to make a list of your fears. Then, for each fear, create a positive thought form that you can repeat daily to cancel out the limiting belief. Relax and observe some of these limiting thoughts, take notice of them and recognize how they are holding you back from something you may desire. Our thoughts create our realities so it’ s important to look closely at our limiting beliefs to see which ones serve us and which ones don’t. As a teacher of Melody Crystal Healing, a lot of the facilitating I do is directly based on helping others recognize their limiting beliefs. I use specific stones in crystal arrays along with guided meditation to help my Clients release these negative thought patterns.
Part of Buddha’s awakening was the realization that our thoughts create our karma. Working with specific stones can help determine our limiting beliefs and release them. Amethyst, Clear Quartz Crystal and Rutilated Quartz can help us visualize or determine what our limiting beliefs are. Citrine, Golden Calcite, Diamond, Pyrite, Tanzanite, Apache Tear, Ruby, Sapphire, Tourmaline and Charoite can aid in helping to dissolve old energy patterns and limiting beliefs. Tigers Eye aids in helping us see our limiting beliefs as neutral, not good or bad. Therefore, we can honestly see which repetitive thoughts are no longer serving us. Peridot and Amber are stones we can use to help lift depression and give us the energy we need to go with the flow of transition. Kyanite, Golden Topaz and Larimar aid in releasing fears and stagnant energy. The best way to use these stones is by meditating with them with the intention to recall your limiting beliefs. The energy of the stones will help us to see clearly how we are limiting ourselves. Also, keeping a particular stone with you in a necklace or in your pocket for 30 days can help make clear (operating as a constant reminder) what your limiting beliefs are. Recognizing and eliminating our limiting beliefs is a huge step in taking back our full power - whether it’s in healing ourselves, attracting our desires or living the lives we want.

Letting Life Love You
be ashamed of what you are learning and don’t know. It is the wise folks who know they are ALWAYS learning and embrace growth joyfully.
Life is not a war zone to fight through or prove your merit; your worth is already given. Life is a lover waiting to be fully embraced, lived and engaged. Life is not a survival test to escape only when you die. Life is working on your behalf, even when conditions are bad. “The lover, out of boundless love, takes the form of the Beloved. What Beauty! Both are made of the same nectar and share the same food. Out of the Supreme Love they swallow each other up. But separate again for the joy of being two.... The entire universe is too small to contain them. Yet they live happily in the tiniest particle.” Jnaneshwar in Nectar of Self-Awareness. Healing is about revealing the capacity, and creativity within you that is WAITING to be given permission. Don’t wait to know your wholeness and innate happiness. Healing is remembering your already present wholeness more and more each day. Don’t wait dear one to let your beautiful smile be seen. Waiting for your spirit to be bright enough, tush thin enough, or bank account fat enough to finally accept your ‘enough-ness’ is torture. You are enough now. Let yourself relax into your continuously evolving self. Skip the ‘growth’ step of self punishment. Life does not need to be: problem, insight, guilt, then integration. You will always have something you are learning. “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.“ Maya Angelou We are not taught emotional wisdom. Many of us were taught to just ‘do more’ , or ‘work harder’ when faced with a relationship issue or life problem believing stopping to look within would be a waste of time. Don’t be ashamed of the unhealthy ways you have devised to get your needs met. Don’t

In retreats and sessions I hear many people say, “How did I not know this?” or “How did I stay in that job/relationship as long as I did?” Some people get so ashamed of what they realized that they try to suppress what they just learned! But, once you know something you cannot ‘un-know’ it. The word ‘lesson’ doesn’t fully embody the joy, and good that evolving reveals. When you shift a limiting perception, your life changes. Your perceptions are continually gathering evidence of being true. Believe ‘you are always the one to give to others’ and/or ‘no one takes care of you’ and this will be your life. Celebrate all the ways you are growing and learning. You are an evolving conscious spiritual energy experiencing itself in an unfolding tapestry. Your heart is like a thousand petal lotus flower and every time a petal opens (insight/learning) you must clear the dust off the petal. Don’t confuse yourself as the dust dear one. Stand willing to love your perceptions, limiting beliefs, and patterns that once served to meet your un-met needs. You will stumble as you challenge yourself to love more, feel deeper and dream bigger. But you never know what stumbling becomes a beautiful new dance. Your good deeds or spiritual growth doesn’t prevent life from happening. Obedience, prayers, and ‘doing everything right’ doesn’t prevent challenging things from happening. Believing if you are ‘good enough’, only good will come to you, or if you work hard enough you will earn only good fortune, traps you into never quite feeling good enough. Have you experienced some things you initially thought were bad, that were actually helping you and when you thought an event was ‘good’, it became troublesome? Maybe its not about labeling things good or bad and more about embracing life as it is, from a place of your essential nature. You are already whole, complete, and beautiful AND waking up to this fact. Live from the fullness and wholeness of your being so that you can cease fighting life’s conditions, and blaming yourself for things that ‘go wrong’. Give yourself permission to feel your wholeness now, before any condition, or circumstance is met. “You are not here to fix yourself. You are here to Be yourself” Micheal Beckwith in Transcendance When you are still waiting for someone, condition or goal to give you permission to know your essential essence you are

trapped in self-created hell. Set yourself free by simply being willing to shed the limiting beliefs that tell you, you have to do something to be loved. As you give permission to your innate wholeness, all that you do, say and accomplish becomes expression of your communion with life and love. Beginning from a place of fullness rather than lack you begin to notice the miracle that is your life. This affirmation I give to clients is potent, simple, and has changed lifes. “I don’t have to do, say, or accomplish anything to be loved” Don’t try to convince yourself of this statement, rather feel the resistance to it with non judgemental witnessing. As you feel the resistance, the wisdom of these words, already within, will be revealed. These words are medicine: ‘Dose’ yourself daily so that you can clear out your cruel mis-perceptions of yourself and life. Repeat and feel any resistance to these words a few minutes a day. Eventually you will begin to embody these words without effort. The beautiful flower remains, even if you are experiencing thorns. Don’t let the thorns define all of life. Don’t let one relationship or situation prevent you from being open and receptive to all the good that life has for you. You have nothing to prove, you are already awesome. Give your essence permission to be expressed and life will figure out the details for you. As you break your internal agreements to fight and prove your worth in the world, a value beyond what you can imagine will be revealed. In service, Barbra White.

This months, ‘Food of the Month’, is a group of essential foods called, “whole grains”. They are the seeds of plants that the main source of nutrition comes from- the outer shell of the grain, the bran and germ. These whole grains are what gives the body energy. When eaten, they release glucose very slowly into the body. This gives you long, sustainable energy to last all day. Very high in fiber, also high in B vitamins, whole grains have also been studied for their anti cancer properties. The human body is designed to eat and assimilate whole grains. In your mouth you have 32 teeth; 4 canine, 8 incisors and 20 molars. These molars are the majority of the teeth. Designed to grind whole grains, this indicates the majority of your food should consist of them. There are three main sources of nutrition for the human body: carbohydrates, protein and fats. Only two of these gives you energy, carbohydrates and fat. The carbs need to be in their whole form or whole grains. Take the bran and germ away, which is all the nutritional value, and what you have left is simple carbohydrates. These simple carbs is what the majority of people are eating in our modern culture. The confusion as to what an actual whole grain is has become a dangerous trend of cutting out carbs from our diet. We cannot cut out the complex carbs. To have a balanced diet and live a pain free, disease free life you have to eat all three important nutrients: carbs, protein and fat. Whole grains are not an ingredient in a box cereal, crackers or a loaf of bread. They come in the bulk section of health food stores. They look like little seeds. To consume them in their whole form you will have to pot boil them. Flour made from whole grains can be a healthy part of your diet, but they are not whole grains. Once you grind the grains, they react differently in your digestive
system. Here is a list of whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, amaranth, kasha or buckwheat, whole wheat, spelt, oats, faro, corn, barley and rye. This recipe features kasha or buckwheat. It is the signature grain for winter. Known for feeding and nurturing the kidneys and bladder, kasha imparts warmth into your body, which is why it is great for our cold winter season. Spicy Kasha and Portabella Mushrooms 1 onion (thin half moons) 1 (6 oz.) package portabella mushrooms slices toasted sesame oil, tamari 1/2 tsp. paprika 1/2 tsp. cumin 1/4 tsp. curry 1 1/2 cups kasha 3 cups water 4 cups sweet potato (peeled and cut into small cubes) 2 cups cabbage (diced) 1/4 cup minced greens (kale, collards) 1 T. tamari / 1 tsp. sea salt 1 tsp. paprika / 1/2 tsp. cumin 1/4 tsp. curry In a large pot, sauté the onions in a little toasted sesame oil and tamari. Once they are translucent, push onions to the side, and add the mushrooms. Season with a dash of tamari, 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1/4 tsp. curry and sauté until soft. Remove from pot and set aside. Add the water and bring to a boil. Add the kasha. Layer the sweet potato and cabbage on top. Do not stir. Reduce to a simmer, put lid on, and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the mushrooms and onions back to the pot, on top of the vegetables. Do not stir. Keep simmering for another 10 minutes. When all water has been absorbed, add the minced green, tamari, sea salt and rest of the spices. Mix all together and serve warm. And enjoy! Val Wilson P a g e 45
A Neurologist Convinces Patients of Mind, Body, Spirit Work Effective mind, body, spirit work leads to inner change, which leads to real happiness and health. Anyone having success with such work, knows how hard it can be and that it pushes you to your limits. Here I share my inspiration and experience attempting to raise awareness of the mind, body, spirit connection while working as a conventional neurologist. My interest in mind, body, spirit work was ignited after an intense and unexpected spiritual experience on Christmas Eve in 2008. For several weeks, my body was engulfed in a loving, buzzing, spiritual presence. The spiritual presence was having an effect on other people. People that were normally tense would let down their guard around me and saw a rare glimpse of their genuine, carefree side. Even total strangers would sometimes open up to me and share very personal experiences. This experience showed me a new way to counsel my neurology patients. I learned to speak less and just give my full attention. I had always presumed that my patients wanted detailed explanations of their diseases. However, when the spiritual presence was active, I was amazed at how many of my patients were satisfied with their visit, despite me saying just a few of words. Instead of walking away with a head full of explanations (mostly wrong, I now realize), they walked away with something priceless. They walked away knowing that someone had really heard them. I thoroughly enjoyed those weeks of intense loving energy. I was dismayed when it faded away. I was ineffective at helping people feel good about themselves. I could not convince them of the importance of spirituality. My spiritual experience had become a memory, and no imagination 46
could replace the real thing. But even in its absence, I could see that I had been given a gift. I had a taste of how life can be, of how we are naturally supposed to be. Although it was gone, it left me with insights of how I needed to change. I knew that spiritual guidance was real, beyond ideas and principles. I also knew that deeply applying the law of karma, “That which we do to others is done to us”, was the key to success. My spiritual experience had been ignited while reading the Spiritual Treasures, Final Edition and those teachings provided me with all the guidance I needed. Now after five years on a spiritual path and after many personal life challenges, things have changed. The loving spiritual presence graces me more frequently and in deepening ways. My ability to help my patients has improved. After many failed attempts, I can see clearly now the reasons I was ineffective at convincing my patients of the importance of mind, body, spirit work. Initially I was insensitive, to them and me. As my sensitivity grew, I became aware that I was perturbed by virtually everyone, including myself. Sometimes I was downright enraged. It became clear to me that I had a big chip on my shoulder towards conventional medicine and Christianity. I had seen the shortcomings in both groups. Even though I understood most them had good intentions, I was frustrated with all the confusion they created. That chip on my shoulder tainted every word I said in favor of spirituality. Most of my patients would humor me as I counseled them, but few were inspired to change. I can now see, it was me that needed to change first. I had to learn to look past the surface of things and overcome my rejection of conventional medicine and Christianity. The universe assisted me by arranging endless opportunities to forgive and just love. To be honest, I still see rejection inside of me, but it doesn’t control me like it used to. Now if I notice
a rejection while counseling my patients, I can usually let it go. When it no longer fuels my thoughts or actions, then something magical happens. I am able to give them my attention so completely that they feel heard. A trust is formed and both our hearts are touched by the opening that results. I now have a much stronger confidence in mind, body, spirit work. I know how very challenging this work is, and have more compassion for those who are just not ready to engage in it. There really are no words or clever tricks to convince someone of the importance of spiritual work. A person has to be ripe and when they are, it is my presence that inspires them. I can see that presence is the culmination of intense efforts to clean-up my own life in a 24/7 manner over the past five years. It is the result of being the change that I wanted to see in others. I am deeply grateful to have learned how to cultivate this inner space that helps people let down their guard and find practical solutions in their lives. I wish others to see this potential in themselves and learn how they can be a source of solutions in a world of confusion.
