Our Founding Vision… “I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.” Black Elk’s Vision (1862 - 1950)

A drunken man who smelled like beer sat down on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the man turned to the priest and asked," Say, Father, what causes arthritis?"

"My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, a contempt for your fellow man, sleeping around with prostitutes and lack of bath." "Well, I'll be damned," the drunk muttered, returning to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does."

Road Rage As he leisurely motored through the hills, he suddenly noticed a woman driving on the opposite side and waving out her window yelling “PIG!” Since he felt he was driving carefully and courteously, he yelled back at her “B_tch!” as he passed. Unfortunately, when he looked back on his side, he was unable to avoid striking the large hog he realized she was referring to.

8 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
Spiritual Development Spiritual development is the process of clearing the communication channel to your inner guidance system. Your inner guidance system is the connection to your true self, your Inner being, the divine knowledge of the universe and all that is. It helps you navigate through life. Your inner guidance system knows everything and is driven by your attraction to people, places, and things. Your senses guide you; does it look, feel, taste or sound good to you? It is the “gut response” confirmed by goose bumps, chills, a sense of well-being, or a “knowing” that requires no confirmation. It is what feels right to you. Most of us are not tapped into the full potential of our inner guidance system. Our connection is clogged with the stagnant energy of disappointment, traumatic experiences, ego and fear causing us to derail from our true path leading to dissatisfaction, pain and suffering. Clearing the channel to your inner guidance through Spiritual Development will help you to make better decisions for yourself, improve your psychic abilities, bring through wisdom from the divine, raise your vibration, strengthen your energy field, calm your busy mind and lead you to a calmer, happier, more prosperous life. You will become more self-empowered, breaking dependencies on other people, places and things. No one knows better than you what is right for you! The following are key practices for you to explore in your spiritual development practice. Observe Beauty Make it a point to observe beauty every day. Listen to music, look at nature, art and enjoy food. Beauty is pleasing and uplifting and enhances our daily path. Beauty is always present even in our July 2014
darkest hour if we choose to see it. The Divine Creator knew physical life would be difficult so it was included in the creation of the planet that boundless beauty and a variety of sights, sounds, tastes, touch and smells would be readily available to help us feel better. Identification of the ego Knowing what ego is and confronting it dissolves it, freeing you from the expectations of yourself and others. Ego is identifying yourself with people, places, beliefs systems and things. Your ego is who you “think” you are. It controls complaining, resentment, whining, being right, making wrong, role-playing the victim, villain, hero, mother, father, teacher, etc. Healing and releasing fear Fear has many faces; low self worth, anxiety, worry, anger, resentment, jealousy, etc., caused by societal conditioning and traumatic experiences. If you are experiencing painful memories and emotions, acknowledge them, investigate them. Address and release any new issues that come up in your daily life so as not to add more issues to those already stored in your psyche. By-pass the Conscious Mind Your inner guidance system knows everything and is always right. The conscious mind second guesses, doubts and brings in unnecessary comparisons and information that causes confusion. It is best to always go with what feels right. If you are having difficulty you can use blind techniques such as a pendulum or oracle cards to help you make decisions because you can’t see or influence the outcome. Gathering Information It is important to be open to new information and new thought. Research healing modalities, seek out mentors and spiritual advisors that can assist you with your spiritual development. Attend holistic festivals and visit healing
w w w. B o d y M i n d S p i r i t G U I D E . c o m
centers to explore the many healing modality options available to you. Energy Work Having regular energy treatments such as Healing Touch, Reiki, CranioSacral, Pranic Healing, Sacred Geometry, etc., keeps your chakra system and energy field in good working order which supports the spiritual work you are doing. Using Guides Opening your channel to guides offers the benefit of receiving information and their high vibrational healing energy. Seek to connect with your personal highest level guide who has been chosen and agreed with you to assist you throughout your life. Highest and Greatest Good Your inner guidance system is always right according to your highest and greatest good. Sometimes that means going through a difficult period in life in order to learn. Do your best to ride with the difficulties, examine the situation and emotions involved. Resisting the event, pushing it down, blaming others and failure to seek out good feelings will hold you in discomfort. Go inward to see how you have contributed to and allowed the situation. Sort it out and move forward according to what your inner guidance is telling you. You will emerge wiser, more powerful and happier than you have ever been.

first or last. Forgiveness only has to be done once, however you must mean it.
and Abundance... Now is a great time to begin your conscious road to prosperity. Prosperity is a mental and spiritual construct long before it becomes a physical reality. There is a stairway to the stars and it has 6 steps. The first step – identify what you feel and think about money. Take some time to ponder this for it will give you the cues to the next step. Do you feel that money is dirty; only for others with more talent than you; it will get you in trouble if you have too much, etc? The next question is to ask what you really think and feel about persons who are rich. Do you say to your self – they must have stolen it, they are selfish and self absorbed, they are upper-class and must have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth, etc? Are you jealous of others? Are you afraid you will be greedy if you have what they have? Go ahead look deep into your inner self and be brave enough to write down exactly what comes to mind. No one else will read your thoughts they are just for you. Once that is done then you can move on. Step two – clean house mentally and physically. You must make room for the new. Mentally review what you have written above and become aware of the persons, places and situations that you need to forgive. You must let go of anger, resentment, hurt, doubt, and self-criticism and so on. Parents, society, buddies, social groups all attempt
to keep a status quo. They deliberately tell you things like, “Who do you think you are?” “What gives you the right to expect to be better then me?” “If you do that you won’t belong with us anymore.” Forgiveness is the Golden Key to PROSPERITY. It is time for you to realize that you are in charge of your destiny and not let others make your choices. It takes bravery to let go of old friends and family who are impeding your growth. It is much more comfortable to stay where you are and to blame the economy than to become assertive in your own behalf. Are you ready to let go? Remember you will be forgiving yourself as well as others. You will be cutting the strings that bind you. Take a moment and close your eyes, take a deep breath and every one that comes to mind that you need to forgive in relation to your prosperity, forgive them now. Imagine them clearly and say out loud, “I forgive you (insert their name).” Be sure to include yourself either
Next begin to clean out your physical environment. Give away those clothes from 5, 10, 20 years ago that you thought you’d wear again – someday. There is a man, woman or child waiting for just those items. Imagine them smiling as they put on your ‘gift’. Get rid of all that stuff that is tucked away in the closet, storage cabinet, garage, attic, etc. It is doing no one any good there. Be done with your ‘pack rat’ mentality. You are an eagle ready to spread your wings and cannot be held down by ‘stuff’ anymore. You must make room, it is a law of the Universe. Step three – decide exactly what it is that you want. Imagine that you are in possession of that decision. In the theater to your mind, see what you see, feel what you feel, hear what you hear, smell what you smell, taste it, know it, it is yours! The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between real and imagined happenings. The more energy you give to this, the quicker you will manifest this new reality that you have claimed. Act as if you were already in possession of your desire; if you need to edit you can do that in your mind until everything is exactly as you desire. What you imagine is coming to pass! Step four – give thanks in ADVANCE for what you have received. You have the desire; the belief and now the expectancy will bring the abundance into your life. Say many times a day, “thank you for _____.”
10 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
Step five is called ‘great gratitude’. Be grateful for everything that happens to you, moment by moment, for that happening is leading you to your prosperity. Even twists and turns or hills and valleys are to be held in great appreciation. The path is never straight or even, it will always be filled with surprises and challenges for you to accept or reject as you wish. Whatever your choice, be grateful that you had a choice. Every morning begin by reciting your litany of ‘great gratitude’ and end each day, as you lay your head down to rest, with gratitude on your lips. A friend of mine always said this prayer at the end of each day. “Dear God, thank you for this day. I have done the best I know how and if I have forgotten something please take care of it for me. I need my rest so that I can awaken and do my best again tomorrow.” He always slept soundly and awakened ready to hit the deck running. Step six – develop a way to keep the flow of abundance going in your life. One way is to annually repeat the first three steps and then continue the habits of four and five. Some ideas I use are: When the mail arrives, smile and be glad that you have creditors who are willing to loan you their goods and services; Greet each phone call cheerfully for it is bringing you good news and lastly, write above your name on all of your checks the words ‘God Bless…’ Everyone who handles your check will subconsciously be saying God Bless you. The blessings will flow and you will continue to be thankful for all of your good fortune.

As I said in the beginning, prosperity is truly a creation of your mind and spirit. Go for it, you are with it. Shoot for the moon and if you miss you’ll still be among the stars! Anne H. Spencer, Ph.D.
During a Papal audience, a business man approached the Pope and made this offer: Change the last line of the Lord’s prayer from “give us this day our daily bread” to “give us this day our daily chicken.” and KFC will donate 10 million dollars to Catholic charities. The Pope declined. 2 weeks later the man approached the Pope again. This time with a 50 million dollar offer. Again the Pope declined. A month later the man offers 100 million, this time the Pope accepts. At a meeting of the Cardinals, The Pope announces his decision in the good news/bad news format. The good news is... that we have 100 million dollars for charities. The bad news is that we lost the Wonder Bread account!

Freedom’s Price Today we celebrate freedom thanks to those who came before. Those brave men who fought and died in each and every war. Freedom always comes at a price, And while we celebrate We should tip our hats to the heroes who made our country great.
ou have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~ Erma Bombeck

Burning Body Fat There are many ways to burn fat, including exercise, diet and calorie restriction, and the use of specific nutritional supplements. The most effective and efficient way to burn fat is having your hormones in balance, and eating specific fat burning foods. Dietary guidelines for fat burning include avoiding refined carbohydrates and sugars found in processed foods. The refining and processing of food destroys and removes the majority of fiber and nutrients. Food labels that promote enhanced, fortified or enriched indicate that a half to a dozen imitation nutrients have been added back in. It would be like someone stealing $100 from you and then giving you back $6. Eating food that has been nutritionally mugged will not allow you to burn fat. By eating the right breakfast, you can start the day by fat burning. Eating small meals through out the day, instead of one to two large meals also encourages fat burning. There are specific foods that you can eat that will enable your body to burn fat, as long as your liver and hormones are balanced. In order to burn fat, the hormones produced by the adrenals, thyroid and reproductive area must be in balance. In addition the liver must be functioning well to break down excess hormones and toxins, and signal the release of stored fat to be burned. Read on to determine what body type you might be, and whether you have liver involvement or hormone gland imbalance. Common indicators of a thyroid type include feeling depressed, dry skin, cold hand and feet, loss of outer third of eyebrow, hair loss, eye puffiness and craving sweets, breads and pasta.
Chronic pain and inflammation, difficulty sleeping, swollen ankles, craving salt or chocolate, needing coffee, and feeling tired, irritable or stressed are common adrenal indicators. Common indicators of hormone imbalance associated with the reproductive area include PMS, excessive bleeding, menopausal symptoms, brain fog, craving for ice cream, cheese or milk, and cyclic water retention, constipation, weight gain or hair loss. Right neck or shoulder pain or stiffness, more awake at night than in the morning, morning irritability or headaches, flaky skin or dandruff, and craving deep-friend foods or potato chips are indicators of a liver body type. A non-invasive evaluation by a Certified Clinical Whole Food Nutritionist can determine which body area needs support in order to burn fat. By resetting body reflexes, and providing specific nutritional support, if needed, your body will be in balance and ready to burn fat, especially when eating fat burning foods. Classes in fat burning foods for each body type are now being offered by the newest addition to our staff, Dr. Solomon. Come learn what foods you need to eat to lose the weight you want.

14 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
A pastor explained to his congregation that the church was in need of some extra money, so he asked them to consider being more than generous. He offered that whoever gave the most would be able to pick three hymns. After the offering plates were passed about the church, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had graciously offered a $1,000 bill. He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his congregation and said he'd like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate. A very quiet, elderly, saintly lady in the back of the church shyly raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front, so she slowly made her way towards him. The pastor told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much, and in thanks he asked her to pick out three hymns. Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation. She pointed to the three most handsome men in the church and said, "I'll take him and him and him."

Healthy Body - Healthy Bones Ahhh….Summer is finally here! To help you enjoy all of your favorite summertime activities, I have the perfect recipe. The ingredients in this recipe work synergistically to build a healthy body and healthy bones. The bonus in following this recipe is that you may be able to spend more time in the sun with less chance of burning. This recipe works best when tweaked to each individual, but I’ll give you the basics. In addition to sunshine, the other ingredients are vitamin D, calcium, phosphorus, and free fatty acids. This recipe starts with sunshine because it is one of the best and least expensive ways to get vitamin D. That’s why it’s called the sunshine vitamin. However, to obtain enough vitamin D from the sun, you must be properly fortified with the right nutrients or risk sunburn. Most essential is having the proper free fatty acids. These free fatty acids also help prevent heat stroke and sun stroke. To learn about the best forms of free fatty acids, come to our workshop on July 30. However, even with the addition of free fatty acids, you might still burn when you swim or bathe in chlorinated water. Normally, when you are in the sun, precursor vitamin D comes to your skin’s surface as an oily, wet substance. Part of this substance evaporates and cools you while the other part is transformed by ultraviolet B rays from the sun into vitamin D3. Chlorine deactivates and removes the perspiration containing the precursor chemical that should have been reabsorbed and turned into vitamin D. This cholesterol-based chemical (oil) is essential to the manufacture of vitamin D and is what protects you from the burning rays of the sun. Being in the sun also protects your skin by bringing the melanin to the surface in what’s commonly known as a suntan. However, the darker your skin becomes, the longer it takes for vitamin D precursors to convert to vitamin D. Vitamin D is quite interesting as it acts as both a vitamin and a hormone. This incredible vitamin protects us from several types of cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis, hypertension, and many other health conditions. As a hormone, it helps regulate other hormones in your body. The old adage of getting fresh air and sunshine to feel better makes sense when you realize that the vitamin D from the sun is actually helping balance your hormones. Getting adequate levels of vitamin D from the sun isn’t
always possible. I suggest supplementing with a high quality vitamin D3 especially if you spend most of your time indoors and definitely during the winter months in Michigan. It’s a good idea to start with a blood test and monitor your progress until you achieve and maintain a healthy level. Taking high amounts of vitamin D and loading the bloodstream with calcium without a way to get it into the tissues can be dangerous. Physicians become concerned about high calcium and high vitamin D levels in the blood because that is what can lead to hypercalcemia. However, when calcium is delivered to the appropriate places and utilized by the body, hypercalcemia can be avoided. This is where free fatty acids are utilized. Free fatty acids ionize the calcium out of the bloodstream and deliver it to the tissues in the body that use it. In my office, we can recommend which free fatty acids will be most helpful for maintaining safe levels of calcium in your bloodstream. Calcium helps to build strong bones and teeth while helping muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves to function normally. The immune system uses it as a tool in destroying bacteria and other invaders. Even the skin utilizes calcium to help form a protective barrier from the burning effects of the sun. Bones function like a bank account when extra calcium is available. When the body needs calcium, calcium ions are dissolved out of the bones into the bloodstream. However, in order to absorb this calcium, a proper acid-base balance is needed. The body must be acidic enough for calcium to stay in solution in the joint spaces and lubricate them. When there’s too little acid, the calcium precipitates from the bones and turns into small grainy particles. These particles lead to stiff, sore joints, and muscle cramps. Another essential component in my recipe for a healthy body and healthy bones is phosphorus. Phosphorus in the correct form is needed to maintain proper calcium levels. According to Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process, the proper ratio of calcium to phosphorus is five calcium units for each two phosphorus units. Without the correct amount of phosphorus, calcium will fall out of solution. When this happens, calcium particles may form calcium stones in the kidneys, gallbladder, and the joint spaces. Oftentimes, problems arise before the stones may be seen on a scan. If you’ve experienced one of these types of stones, you know how painful they can be. The good news is that you don’t have to wait for a scan to verify the existence of this problem to get relief if you know what to do. Phosphorus is also used to prevent and resolve problems with gout. However, gout is actually a digestive disorder so
16 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
those with gout must continue to pay strict attention to their diet. The X-rays we take to show structure can also tell us whether or not you have proper levels of calcium in your bones. X-rays also help us to see whether you have symptoms associated with low levels of phosphorus in the bone, such as osteopenia, osteoporosis, or abnormal calcium deposits in your carotid arteries or your aortic arch. These are all serious conditions but they can be helped with good nutrition.

A glass of milk, paid in full One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.” As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit. Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words: “Paid in full with one glass of milk. Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.” Author Unknown
The Earth: Her Spiritual Secrets Revealed The Earth is a living being, a Goddess who, through her great Love, has provided us with a home in space. Indigenous culture, ancient civilizations and enlightened individuals through the centuries have honored and thanked Mother Earth for her great love and sacrifice on our behalf. This love has enabled us to live, breathe and gain valuable experience.
Tragically, through countless lifetimes humanity has continually taken the Earth for granted. THE PRESEN We have, far too often, abused her gifts for personal gain Gary and greed. We seldom have offered even a token of thankGary is fulness in return for all that she gives to us every second of interna Qi Hea every day. She is far more than “....an insignificant planet of a in Los A humdrum star.....” as an astronomer once described her. In person his mis fact, without her, we would be lost.
Lo There has been a gradual change in the worldview from one (248) 588-0290 Em of the relationship of humankind with the Earth below our feet and the Cosmos above. Gradually and inexorably we became separated from Mother Earth. A burgeoning materialistic worldview conditioned us to believe that She was a resource; a lump of lifeless rock which could supply us with all we needed. This separation became ever more apparent in the past three hundred years with the advent of mechanistic science, inspired by Newton’s physics.
In an effort to understand, things were reduced to their smallest part, analyzed and built up again. At the same time as this, we began to separate completely from the Earth and her bounty, nature. The Earth was no longer seen as a sacred planet but as something to be conquered, controlled and used to our advantage. The living Earth became a resource in a soulless quest to fuel our needs and attain greater wealth. . As a result, the sacredness and beauty of Earth became lost; seemingly irrelevant to the modern age. Despite this, this beautiful planet has borne us and allowed us to continue our experience. However, the time has come for us to renew our sacred connection to Mother Earth. At the edge of this age of science, the Age of Aquarius, we have reached out into the Cosmos and in doing so; we are suddenly reminded of the sacredness of the Earth. This was brought home to us when the astronauts first ventured into space and saw the Earth from space for the first time. Many of these astronauts were deeply moved by this experience, and expressed their deepest feeling. This planet is not terra firma. It is a delicate flower and it must be cared for. It's lonely. It's small. It's isolated, and there is no resupply. And we are mistreating it. Clearly, the highest loyalty we should have is not to our own country or our

In our lives, there are ever so many things to forgive. From the pain in our body, to the misunderstandings we have with others, or the financial difficulties we experience, etc., etc. etc. Then there is forgiving ourselves for what we have or have not done. Grace is the essence of forgiveness with ease. Grace is unconditional; it is there whether or not a person deserves it. Grace wipes the slate clean and allows us to begin life on a new note; it sets us free of the past. Receiving grace is an act of faith in the benevolence of life; it is an expression of courage, making room for something new and being willing to start again. The influences of the New World energies that are flowing into our lives since the advent of 2013 are an expression of grace. They are in the process of lifting our world into harmony with the true core of life which is unconditional love. This upliftment is breaking up the old structure of society and culture, much like the breaking up of the glaciers on our planet’s polar regions. The old crusty elements of separation and fear are melting and we find ourselves wondering if this is good or bad! I say it is definitely good; but there are things

to learn and do during this transition that require us to let go of the past and step up to a higher level of being. Grace is here to help with that! You can think of grace as a river of forgiveness and unconditional love, flowing from the heart of God through our world. It doesn’t force people to let go of their old fears and judgments, or to forgive themselves or others, but it offers that opportunity. Wherever there is a tiny opening to love and forgiveness, it widens that crack. Gradually it is becoming easier for people and the world to let go of the old wounds and to heal. The reason for this river of grace is that the world has entered a new set of planetary contracts for the evolution of life. The forces of fear that have ruled the Old World experience prior to 2013 are no longer the authority on Earth. The power of unconditional love has come into supremacy and it will succeed in overcoming the old. It has been rising in power as the time for this change of contracts has grown closer; bringing change in cycles of increased spiritual light, followed by cycles of darkness again. But the power of the old contracts has been broken and now the change is exponential. With each passing year the influence of unconditional love will multiply, growing in leaps and bounds. To be ready to receive this love, we need to surrender to grace and take the leap of courage to begin to trust life again, even though we have felt our trust betrayed many times in our lives and the world seems an uncertain place to be. You can imagine yourself floating in this river of grace; allowing it to lift up all the fear and pain from your body and soul and carry it into the pure heart of God. Then, open up to the influence of unconditional love and let it raise your vibration into harmony with the true spirit at the core of yourself. This part of you is eternal and has been hidden within you within all lifetimes; shining through at moments from the still place of unconditional love within your heart, and disappearing again much of the time. Now it is journeying home to live fully within

your body and soul here on Earth. It is your true and individual facet of God and it has been building your body and soul for lifetimes to become the true partner it needs within this world. This new union of spirit and earth within is not a giving away of self, but a claiming of yourself truly. To claim this experience, you get to let go of the old baggage you don’t need anymore! All suffering and pain will ultimately be transmuted into pure energy of love by the river of grace. This process is gradual, but working with it you find an increasing sense of confidence in the process and trust in yourself. It is becoming easier to let go of anger and fear and you’ll find courage to trust the process of life as it undergoes reconstruction into a New World for us to live in. The whole world is enfolded in the river of grace and beginning to heal now. Watch it and see the miracle of this process over the coming years. It may not look the way you will expect it to because everything changes in its own way and time. But if you look with eyes filled with the grace of your own healing, you will be amazed by what you see happening in the world around. You will see grace working its healing magic, awakening truth and unconditional love where once there was fear.

Dramatic Weight Losses With “No Diet” I heard about Dr. Reggish from my girlfriend In Traverse City who lost 28 lbs. in only 4 weeks without dieting. I couldn’t believe it until I weighed her. I live in Chicago and I still decided to make an appt. with Dr Reggish. I just couldn’t watch my girlfriend lose all this weight without me. I’m so glad I did. In 2 weeks I lost 18 ½ lbs. and I can’t wait to fly back again in 2 weeks. We heard about Doc one year ago and we’re sorry we didn’t get in sooner. Doc is awesome. I have 2 other friends from Chicago flying in with me that made appts, we’re making it a girl’s weekend in Livonia. Thanks Dr Reggish, Anna Marie M., Chicago I read about Dr. Reggish 8 months ago and decided I was ready to see him. I suffer from bad constipation, sugar cravings, brain fog, depression and chronic fatigue. Mostly I wanted to lose weight and get healthy. In one week I lost 9 lbs. and I feel great with lots of energy, no brain fog and no sugar cravings. Dr Reggish said that the sugar cravings would be gone in one day. It actually stopped just after I took these herbs he gave me. My 2nd week I lost 8 more lbs. and my depression is gone. Also I’m having daily bowel movements (mostly 2 a day).

My energy also drastically improved. It’s now been 4 wks and the pain in my body is completely gone and I feel 10 years younger. I’ve lost a total of 31 lbs. I absolutely love Dr Reggish. He’s unbelievable. Thanks Doc. Mary Lu, Flint, Mi. The first time I met Dr Reggish, I cried for almost an hour telling him about all my health problems. Dr Reggish was very calm and said don’t worry…we just have to teach you some healthy lessons to live with and miracles will happen. Well miracles did happen and in only 3 weeks I lost 49 lbs without being on a diet. Dr Reggish never told me how much to eat. He never put me on a caloric diet. I couldn’t believe the changes in my body. I do have to say while taking some herbs from Dr Reggish, I saw thousands of parasites during my bowel movements. In two months, I have lost 87 lbs and many of my problems are gone, including depression. When I look in the mirror, I see a new person and thank God everyday for Dr. Reggish. Maria S., Madison Hgts.

Can’t Lose Weight? This May Surprise You…
body’s use of fat as a fuel. So if you are exercising to try to lose weight, but have high insulin levels from a recent carb-based meal, the insulin will prevent your body from accessing the fat stores.
It is said that the more calories you consume, the more weight you will gain, right? At least that’s the modern weightcontrol theory, which is based on the idea that weight loss is a simple mathematical formula of consuming fewer calories than you use up.
Even more important than weight regulation for many people are appetite and cravings control. Many of my patients who are trying to improve their diets complain not so much about being hungry as craving sweets and carb-rich foods such as doughnuts, pastries and soda. The problem is that carbs are literally addictive for some people, especially highly refined carbs like sugar and white flour products.
There are calculations showing that if you eat a small snack every day that exceeds your caloric expense for that day, you could gain several pounds in a year, based on the few extra calories in that snack. Our current low-fat diets are based on this theory, as, gram for gram; fats are the most calorie-dense foods we eat. The problem is it’s not working. Americans now consume dozens of low-fat products, from milk to cereals to pizza, and yet we are gaining weight at an astonishing rate. It is estimated that fully three-quarters of Americans are overweight. (Technically, 33 percent of adults are overweight; statistics separate overweight adults from obese adults. The 75 percent is the sum of overweight, obese, and extremely obese adults.) And we are gaining weight fast. Everybody knows we need to be more active and exercise more. But there is tremendous disagreement — and confusion — when it comes to what is a healthy, weight-regulating diet. There is evidence that diet is the main driver for our national weight problem. From a wellness perspective, weight control is not nearly as simple as calories in, weight on. Our weight is regulated primarily by hormones that are strongly influenced by the foods we eat. What’s the biggest culprit for putting on weight? Insulin. This hormone is known primarily for lowering blood sugar after a meal heavy in carbs. But it does so by storing many of the extra calories as fat. It also stops the July 2014
Dr. David Kessler, former head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and author of “The End of Overeating,” also implicates foods high in salt and processed fats as being addictive. Healthy fats are not addictive, but processed ones are, especially Trans fats. Dr. Kessler reviewed a study in which rats that were offered high-fat, sugary foods showed signs of addiction, almost equal to that of cocaine. The lead author of the study, Dr. Paul Kenny, commented, “In the study, the animals completely lost control over their eating behavior, the primary hallmark of addiction. They continued to overeat even when they anticipated receiving electric shocks, highlighting just how motivated they were to consume the palatable food.” When the ‘junk foods’ were removed and healthy options were offered, many of the rats simply refused to eat. Does this sound like a 5-year-old having a sugar tantrum? Studies have shown sugar to have potent effects on brain chemistry, affecting the opioid and dopamine receptors that are associated with mood and addiction. Sugar is a short-term analgesic, which means it actually relieves pain. Some researchers go so far as to call it a drug. Based on this information, I do not recommend most patients use the “eat all foods in moderation” idea. If a food
w w w. B o d y M i n d S p i r i t G U I D E . c o m
is addictive, the only way to avoid “setting off” the addiction is to avoid that food completely for a short time until the addiction is gone. A qualified Wellness Doctor can take you through this process. I recommend patients stick to the basic rules of nutrition I was taught 32 years ago in Chiropractic College: Eat only whole, intact foods; avoid the more processed ‘foods’ containing sugars and high-fructose corn syrup; white flour products; and soda. It can be a difficult transition — these foods are everywhere, especially during the holidays. Many patients do well in improving their diets and notice great health gains, only to find that after a piece of birthday cake they end up on a ‘junk food’ binge for two weeks. The best weapon I can give my patients against overeating and obesity is knowledge; the facts about hormones and weight regulation and the problems with low-fat diets, but mostly the addictive nature of refined carbs. People who have a hard time quitting carbs are not weak willed — the problem is the foods themselves. They are literally addictive, and food manufacturers are doing everything they can to keep them that way. This is why I always test my patients for food allergies before putting them on a weight loss program. If you’re allergic to foods, then you’ll crave these foods and you’ll never lose weight. Folks…weight gain is not your fault. God Bless, Dr. Michael D. Reggish, D.C., N.D.

24 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
Side-Stepping Stress Stress is everywhere in our society today; it can be difficult to avoid and deal with. I feel the negative aspects of stress have been brought to the surface and discussed previously, so I am not going to analyze why we are so stressed or its symptoms. The average person can recognize when they or a loved one is experiencing stress overload, because it can affect their relationships. Stress and its resulting manifestations seem to be running rampant—TV, radio, newspapers and now friends through social media. Instant world-wide mass communication can be both a blessing and a curse. The truth is, we can limit how stress and anxiety impact our personal health and well-being simply by realizing the average individual has limited control over things, such as societal and economic issues. Some things in life are inevitable -- family and job pressures for example. In these situations, finding a way to retreat and ‘de-stress’ may be a challenge in itself. Here is where side-stepping stress comes in handy… side-stepping stress is simple, purposeful and can be incorporated into your life easily. Purposeful steps and action are a great way to take care of yourself during stressful situations. Side-stepping stress is action, it’s moving forward in a purposeful way. Moving forward, actively taking steps forward, is putting action in your life. Moving in stress is a powerful way to take charge of how you allow stress to affect you. In my choice to side-step stress, the following actions were helpful in alleviating some levels and I didn’t have to change my whole lifestyle at once. Exercising–Twenty minutes of intense physical activity works amazingly well to make your body’s muscles feel worked, produce mood-boosting endorphins, and usually improve your sleep at night. Diet–follow sensible rules, no extremes … watch for allergies such as GMO, July 2014
wheat, etc. Drink Green Tea–it contains the amino acid, L-theanie, which aids relaxation. Sleeping enough for your body—new research shows that five hours of sleep is an adequate amount for our bodies to recharge and will promote a longer life. Recreation–Reading, walking, spending time in nature, vacations, staycations -anything that you feel relaxes your mind and spirit. Supplements–You can't run on empty! When feeling stressed we may skip a meal or not eat at all; supplements will give your body the essential nutrients, minerals and herbs that produce energy for your body to keep moving forward and stay active. Recently, a friend of mine incorporated these simple steps and said she felt better than she had in years. It reminds me of something another dear friend, Charlotte, used to say, “Every step I take is a step forward.” She said this almost every day and when you think about it, this can apply to almost every situation. Charlotte has left the earth plane, but I still remember her wonderful way of looking at life -- don’t stay stuck. Take a step. Keep moving forward. Every step I take is a step forward is a

Calming The Mind. The Key to Accessing Human Potential On average, how many thoughts does a person have in a day? A) 1,000; B) 5,000; C) 10,000; D) 25,000; E) 50,000. If you chose “E” you would be right. Most likely it is because you have heard or read about this before. It is unlikely you have actually experienced this by observing your thoughts, as much of the activity occurs subconsciously. Just because it is outside your normal awareness does not mean it doesn’t have an impact on your life. The Human Mind Contributes to Your Unease The unceasing tireless activity of the mind is a causal factor for many negative experiences in our life. It contributes to stress, anxiety, fear, illness, restlessness, sleeplessness, lack of energy, poor relationships and every other unwanted thing you can think of. These underlying thoughts create a background noise. They sometimes subtly, but often vigorously, taint our view of reality and are responsible for unease and a lack of calm. Have you ever wondered why you are anxious, antsy or irritable for no reason? The subconscious mind is likely at work. When you first begin to listen to your thoughts, you will be surprised how rarely you are at ease. Meditation is a doorway into awareness, yet many first time meditators quickly give up because there seems to be more thoughts than before they began meditating. This is one level of truth. A deeper truth is that there are not more thoughts; but you have simply become more aware of what was already there. Begin to examine these thoughts and you will find judgments, defensiveness, victimhood, pride, fear, regret -- anything that takes you away from the Power of Now. Depending on the thought and your investment in that thought, there will be an emotional component that amps up the current of the thought creating even more turmoil and unease. Many Do Not Realize What Is Possible At this point many people give up; the thought of too many thoughts is too much. They would rather suppress thought and continue to live a limited life. Most of humanity chooses this. They are unaware of how much life they are leaving behind. We
have boxed ourselves in and have limited the range of what is possible. We may even be happy, but there are levels of happiness and most of us have not even come close to the limit of how much joy we can have in our life. Humanity has limited the range of what we believe is possible. Our potential for joy is far greater than we can imagine. When you begin to calm the mind, joy begins to flow. Life becomes easier and abundance reigns supreme. And then you wonder… How can it get any better than this? And then it does. As you continue to clear, let go of judgments, forgive the past; you are graced with ever deeper levels of joy. There is no limit, there is no end. This is heaven on earth. Your Gifts Are In The Present But how do we do this? There are many paths, many teachers and Pat and I have tried quite a few of them. What we have found most effective is to come into present moment awareness. Taking any path that leads you to that point is in our opinion, the fastest route to freedom. The one tool that does it best is conscious breathing. There is no power in the world that can place you in the present moment as simply as focusing consciously on your breath. This also places the highest quantity of life force at your conscious disposal. This energy is yours to do with as you will. Create more joy in your life. Extend it to others. Be the change you wish to see in the world. Be The Ocean If you continue to do what you’ve done, it’s like dipping your toe in the ocean and trying to make waves. That is pretending to make change. The waves are small and there is no lasting effect. But ohhh ... believe you are the ocean and you can make waves upon waves of love, joy and beauty. So let’s calm our minds and access that part of us that creates worlds. Let us together create the good, the holy and the beautiful. Join us for this month’s FREE meditation on Calming the Mind.

ROCK OF THE MONTH: Emerald is a beautiful stone with a rich history. A form of Beryl, the term Emerald means “green”. The earliest record of Emeralds was recorded in Egypt, but the finest Emeralds were mined in Columbia. The Romans associated the stone with the goddess Venus, and hailed it as a stone of fertility. Christians hailed it as a stone of resurrection. Others praised it for its healing qualities including curing diseases, improving memory, calming fears and enhancing the gift of prophecy. Lore states that there was an ancient Emerald Tablet that held the secrets for enlightenment! Emerald resonates to the heart chakra, enhancing feelings of compassion and unconditional love. For those on a spiritual path, what better stone to work with since our Divine Nature speaks of unconditional love? This stone keeps us centered in love of self and others. It is said to help heal a broken heart. Since an open heart is the key to the flow of life’s blessings, this stone is considered the stone of prosperity. If you want to attract prosperity into your life, wear the emerald as it allows us to attract what we want. Emerald, like Moldavite, is considered a stone of the Holy Grail, since they are viewed as tools for opening the heart. Emeralds are beautiful in their rough state but shimmer in the polished form. Emerald helps strengthen the physical heart, as well as clear heavy emotional baggage and energies of victimhood and unworthiness. It helps us claim our personal power and operate from a space of compassion. What better way to bring harmony, hope, gentleness, acceptance, encouragement and prosperity into your life than by working with this beautiful stone?

Your search for certainty blinds you to the nectar of the present moment. Let yourself feel the positive and the negative so that you can experience the movement of Creation. To live in joy-filled intimacy, you must approach life as more than a chess game. Whether life feels stale or whether life smells like roses…remain present. Sometimes the staleness or sweetness feels like it is inside of you, and sometimes it feels it is on the outside. If you can allow yourself to be with ‘what is’, you will yield to a Peace that is beyond your conditions. True peace includes the stale and sweet, the dark and the light. Constantly searching for certainty in life will drive you mad. Certainty grounded in the mind (belief structures, opinions) or external (person, job, marriage) is a temporary foundation. Certainty that embraces the changing mind and external conditions, yet rests in an experiential awareness of all that Is, allows true peace. Embrace uncertainty, while knowing there is a universal energy that is working on your behalf. When you hold space for surface realities, yet yield to the great unknown within your being, you feel the connection and grounding that you yearn for. Bound by power-over models, we fear letting go. Because we have been raised with models of reward and punishment, we believe there is a God presence that seeks to take over our voice, feelings, and autonomy. How many decisions have you made on the need for approval from your parents, boss, or society? How many choices come from fear of losing your job, fear of ridicule, or a bad grade? What would it be like to make a decision on what your core essence felt was right? Do you know the difference? When you allow external sources to guide your life you lose who you truly are and tragically fear the release that would bring peace. Your surrender requires you to claim your full self. It also requires you to yield completely. In fact, it is impossible to yield to your True Self-Love-God unless you have claimed your full self. Relationship ‘guru’ David Deida describes it as three stages of loving: 1. I desperately need a partner! 2. I don’t need a partner! I love me. I am complete. 3. I am incomplete unless I let go to loving you. In stage one we feel desperate for someone to complete us. In stage two we are realizing we can make it on our own, we have a purpose, and we are worthy. In stage three we realize we are lovable and whole, and yet, an even greater experience of Love/God is waiting. “One person’s ceiling is another person’s floor.” Paul Simon These stages happen in flux within us, and include relationships to other people, ourselves, God, Life, and the Earth. (In fact, how you relate to yourself is how you will relate to God/Others/Earth, and vice versa) In stage two we reclaim our ‘no’, realize the deep value of emotions, and learn to have healthy boundaries. Many people in relationships and spiritual growth try to jump past stage two (spiritual/mental bypassing) into the boundless love of stage three, but ultimately they end up feeling like an empty shell. Your sense of peace and connection to your True Self requires good maintenance of your humanity. Slow down enough to be aware of your emotions and thoughts. This is imperative to knowing your needs. If you do not know your needs, you cannot
28 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
consciously communicate or feel your true purpose. When you allow yourself to be guided by what waters your heart and feeds your soul, you let go to the third stage of loving. Or, saying all this in another way, self-love leads to letting go to the Universal Love/God and living in blissful connection. You don’t need to know what you want before you let go. However, you can use intention or positive thinking as a tool to greater surrender. Intention and positive thinking helps you to not fight with ‘what is’, and assists you in looking for the good that is always there. Figuring things out does not make your life happen. Life is a constant rushing river of energy working through, as, and in you. For instance, if your intent is to “open to prosperity and opportunity” it is more likely that you will notice the opportunities that are available with this intention. Clearly intend or affirm something, and then, let go. If you do not let go, your mind will race, try to figure out the future, deny emotional guidance, and consequently miss the good that is waiting. Life is a river. It will have rocks and mud. If you deny their existence or feel betrayed for them being there you will create unnecessary suffering. Life is working on your behalf, and there is a magnificent destiny waiting for you. The tools of selflove, meditation, journaling, intention, therapy, and prayer are essential to letting go to your greater good. Remember, these tools are for one purpose and one purpose only -- a surrender to ‘what is’. This powerful surrender allows you an embodied experience of the divine beyond thoughts and conditions, and a remembrance of your True Self. If you knew consciously what good was coming, it would have already happened. Embrace uncertainty and let go of any hardened opinions about yourself and others. Stories of why things can’t happen, or giving reasons why it is the way it is, keeps you locked in a conditional temporary reality. Greater good is waiting to happen if you can only let it in. Self-love will help you to put down the ‘hot coal’ of thinking about what they are thinking of you, or stories of limitation. Be gentle with yourself, get quiet, and let emotions move through without judgment, and the eternal waters of Creation will be felt in your every breath.

35 Ways to a Stress-Recess this Summer! It's summertime and we all know what that means: time outdoors, kids out of school, weddings, pool parties, zoo trips, holidays, vacationing and stress. Oh, wait -- stress? How did that get there? That's the thing about stress; it has a habit of sneaking into our lives when we least expect it, especially during the summer months. Somewhere between the fun, sun and parties that permeate June, July and August, stress quietly tip-toes in, subtly making itself known. At first glance, it's easy to overlook some of the common signs of stress -- feeling tired or cranky; a queasy stomach; or even a headache -- but catching these symptoms early-on in the cycle alleviates stress before it has a chance to turn into something worse, like depression, anxiety, emotional overwhelm or a lot of other stress-related dis-eases. Thankfully, there are myriad things you can do to keep stress at bay this summer, so you can truly relax and enjoy the season, all summer long! Self-care and self-loving actions are a wonderful place to start! Here is a list of 35: 1. Exercise! Run, walk, ride a bike or anything that gets your body moving! 2. Meditate; the benefits are numerous and it is an excellent stress-recess! 3. Get yourself a manicure or pedicure 4. Eat healthy; think greens and lean meats and fish! 5. Learn a deep breathing technique and practice it every day! Here are a few: [http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART00521/ three-breathing-exercises.html] 6. Practice gratitude! Write down three things you are grateful for every day. Research shows practicing daily gratitude increases physical symptoms and increases optimism [http://psychology. ucdavis.edu/Labs/emmons/PWT/index. cfm?Section=4] July 2014
7. Take yourself out for a fancy meal. You deserve it! 8. Eat off your fine china (better yet, swap your ordinary china for your fine china for good!) 9. Write yourself a love letter ... and mail it! 10. Buy yourself flowers 11. Take a bath; soak for a minimum of 30 minutes, no interruptions! 12. Write a list of your top 10 strengths 13. Sign up for a personal development course. Always wanted to learn how to draw? Want to become a better cook? Local community organizations are a great place for classes like this! 14. Create a vision board; grab some catalogs and cut and paste away! It'll get your mind off of what's wrong and on to what you want! 15. Grab some paints and a canvas and paint! For added fun, use your non-dominant hand! 16. Go to a park and listen to the birds sing. Nature is soothing and relaxing! 17. Write “I love you, (name)!” on 5 sticky notes and put them up on your mirror, bedside table and in your car! You'll appreciate the nice, loving surprise for days to come! 18. Talk to a trusted friend. Like the old adage says, "A problem shared is a problem halved." 19. Listen to uplifting music; Andre Reiu and Michael Bernard Beckwith are fantastic places to start! 20. Go to a greenhouse and marvel at the flowers and plants. Their beauty is
like food for the soul! 21. Run through a sprinkler! 22. Ask for help in handling household tasks 23. Start planning your next trip 24. Say no to events that don't feel like a "definite yes". Do yourself and everyone a favor: don't say yes to things that don't feel right for you. 25. Get a facial 26. Buy yourself new undergarments 27. Play a game. Yahtzee, anyone? 28. Do affirmations in the mirror. Such a powerful practice to get you in touch with your soul! 29. Sit in a whirlpool 30. Go swimming 31. Dance in your kitchen ... or anywhere! [http://www.everydayhealth. com/fitness-pictures/health-benefits-ofdance.aspx#/slide-1] 32. Swing on a swing set! There's a reason kids love it! 33. Get a massage 34. Do yoga; the benefits are numerous! 35. Commit to five minutes of daily journaling every day. Observe your thoughts without judgment and just write. It is amazing what an effect just five minutes has in shrinking worries and fears down to size! Jaime Pfeffer is a transformational coach, writer and teacher. After living with depression and anxiety for 20 years, she had a spiritual awakening and radically transformed her life! Today she helps others put the joy back into their lives!

Refusal to Take— So I Don’t have to Give It’s easy to understand the need for a balance of give and take in order to maintain equilibrium in a relationship. However, some individuals refuse to take! They hang on to the “illusion of innocence” by hanging on to the belief that if they minimize participation in life—they will owe nothing to anyone. These individuals “take” only that which is necessary for them to survive, thereby avoiding obligations to everyone. They close themselves off from life—and withdraw by denying they have any needs for anything! Although they may indeed feel from all needs, and may also believe that since they have no needs, they are therefore free from all obligations. These individuals who refuse to take, live their lives as uninvolved observers and not as participants in life. These people who refuse to take—and won’t get their hands dirty—see themselves as superior to others, and very special indeed. However, although they may feel above it all, their enjoyment of life is limited by the shallowness of their participation in the world—and with the people around them.

Individuals who refuse to take tend to always feel empty and dissatisfied—but they don’t know why. Some individuals who will not take, offer to provide help to others, but they continue to tenaciously maintain that they personally do not need anything in return. They often justify their unwillingness to ever take anything—they complain that everything they were ever given was never good enough! They claim they never get the correct thing, or what they were ever given wasn’t good enough, or that what they did get wasn’t what they wanted or needed. Others point to the errors and limitations of the giver—but the result remains the same—they remain passive and empty. A refusal to take generally begins by rejecting and judging their parents, regardless of what the parents have done. Those who consistently reject the gifts of others typically feel empty and lost. People who approach life this way often struggle with depression. They refuse to enjoy what life has to offer, what began with judging and rejecting their parents, they carry over to all of their relationships as adults. They deny themselves the goodness the universe has to offer—challenging their prosperity until it is diminished or non-existent! The opposite is true of people who have accepted their parents as they are, and in taking from them what was given, they experience a continuous flow of strength and nourishment that they carry with them for the rest of their lives—lives that are full of strength and nourishment. They can, and do, enter into relationships in which they are able to give and take equally.

8 Summer Steps for Healthy Living 1. Give Your Diet a Berry Boost: If you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, have a cup of mixed fresh berries -- blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries -- every day. They'll help you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce the risks of age-related illnesses.
HUMAN AWARENESS INSTITUTE
2. Get Dirty -- and Stress Less: To improve your stress level, plant a small garden, cultivate a flower box, or if space is really limited, plant a few flower pots -- indoors or out. Just putting your hands in soil is "grounding." 3. Floss Daily: You know you need to, now it's time to start: floss every single day. Do it at the beach, while reading on your patio, or when watching TV -- and the task will breeze by. It reduces oral bacteria, which improves overall body health, and if oral bacteria is low, your body has more resources to fight bacteria elsewhere.

4. Get Outside to Exercise: Going on a hike, taking a nature walk, playing games such as tag with your kids, cycling, roller blading, or swimming -- to shed that cooped-up feeling of gym workouts.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frozen Pie Crust: 1 1/2 cups cookie crumbs 3 T. brown rice syrup 3 T. rice milk 3/4 cups peanut butter
Filling: 1 pint frozen vanilla soy ice cream 1 cup Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips Topping: 1/3 cup peanut butter 1/3 cup Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips To make crust, mix together all ingredients until you get a thick batter. Using wet hands, press into an oiled pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before filling. To make filling, put chocolate chops in a food processor. Chop the chips up until they are in little pieces. Let frozen soy ice cream sit out on counter to get soft. Add to the processor, puree until smooth. Pour into pie crust. To prepare topping, put peanut butter and chocolate chips in a sauce pan. On a low heat, slowly heat on stove. Keep an eye on it and mix it as it melts. It is easy to scorch. Once melted, pour over pie. Put pie in freezer. Serve frozen. Valerie Wilson Recipe from her cookbook ‘Perceptions In Healthy Cooking’. www.macroval.com
Food Of The Month: Peanuts July, my favorite month of the year! Not only do I get to celebrate my birthday, I also love summer and the hot temperatures, enjoying the outdoors and making frozen desserts. So to celebrate the month of July, I am sharing one of my favorite desserts -- a dessert combo with chocolate and peanut butter. There’s just something about the bitter, sweetness of chocolate, combined with rich, creamy peanut butter that makes the perfect dessert. Peanuts have been eaten for over 7,600 years. They originated in Peru and spread throughout the world by Spanish explorers. Peanuts are actually a legume, which means they are high in protein. They are an excellent source of resveratrol, an antioxidant that has been shown to help protect against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer’s disease, viral and fungal infections, and reduces stroke risk. If that is not enough, these little power packed legumes are also high in pantothenic acid, B vitamins, iron, manganese and Vitamin E. There is also a known natural remedy for weakened kidneys -- boiled peanuts. If you have ever been down in the southern states you know they eat boiled peanuts in abundance. They have stands on the side of the road selling them. They have big cast iron pots with a fire underneath boiling the peanuts. Seasoned with salt, they taste very good.
Man cannot live by bread alone; he must have peanut butter. James A. Garfield
Peanut butter is probably the most widely used form of peanuts in our diets. When buying peanut butter it is always best to find organic. But natural peanut butter is a good choice also. Most commercial peanut butter has added sugar and hydrogenated oils. The natural peanut butter will separate in the jar, so you will have to stir it once you get it home. In the following recipe I use a soy frozen dessert, ice cream. You can choose your favorite frozen ice cream to use in the recipe. I use Sunspire grain sweetened chocolate chips. They are sweetened with malted barley and corn. Grain sweeteners will not spike your blood sugar levels and are the healthiest sweeteners you can use.

tears of joy. Witnessing the miracle of birth. Receiving kindness and compassion from another. Listening to moving music. Sharing in a wedding ceremony. Taking in the gentle touch of a lover. Feeling deep gratitude. Again, in this life experience there is so much to cry about.
As human beings, experiencing the world of emotions is a central part of this life experience. We are gifted with the opportunity to feel a multitude of positive emotions like great joy, excitement, peace, and love. Another part of this life experience involves feeling deep sadness, confusion, anger, and fear. These more challenging emotions are truly inescapable. Even those who devoted their entire lives to peace, like the Dali Lama and Mother Teresa, acknowledged the personal experience of sadness, anger, fear, etc.
in this way, the energetic charge from intense emotions can get stuck in the body and directly impact our physical and emotional health. Crying helps to move the charge of the emotion, which creates an aliveness and energetic flow in the body, heart, and mind. In fact, research has shown that tears contain stress hormones that get released from Since experiencing these emotions is the body through crying. Crying also leads to the production of endorphins, an unavoidable part of being human, it’s helpful to know how to best move through which are our body’s natural “feel-good” hormones. These endorphins contribute them to restore your body and mind to to positive feelings and help to reduce a state of balance. In my personal and professional experience, one of the most stress and physical pain. effective ways to feel better when there As we travel along life’s journey, is a build-up of emotional energy in the there is so much to cry about.

There are also especially beautiful moments in life, both simple and profound, that give us reasons to cry w w w. B o d y M i n d S p i r i t G U I D E . c o m
Sadly, we often receive messages that it is weak to cry and that people should toughen up, be strong, and put on a straight face. These messages are misguided and arise from a fear of vulnerability. It actually takes a tremendous amount of courage and strength to feel and express our emotions, instead of suppressing them and covering up with a false façade of “I’ve-got-it-all-together.” In truth, no one has it all together, which is helpful to remember if the mind tries to convince you otherwise. We all experience challenges and successes, sadness and joy, frustration and contentment, as this is a central part of being human. To me, the ability to feel such depth and complexity of emotion is a precious and unique part of this life experience. So the next time you feel the impulse to cry, I invite you to take a deep breath, remember that it’s safe to feel, and let your tears flow.

The Window Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene. One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn’t hear the band – he could see it. In his mind’s eye as the gentleman by th! e window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days and weeks passed. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed. It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window

Who is God? God is the center of all intelligent consciousness and pervades the entire universe -- also known as the Universal Mind. He is all knowing, all powerful, all creative and always present. All thought is stored in the universal mind of God. We are a part of this wonderful energy and when God created the Earth he put his energy into form, which was the creation of human kind. Your mind is part of the One Universal Mind. This is not a philosophical ideal, but a scientific truth. Albert Einstein told us that “everything is energy”, and that “a human being is a part of the whole called by us, the Universe.” His words echoed the most ancient of spiritual and philosophical teachings. The Universal Mind goes by many names -- in the scientific world he is know as the Unified Field, in the spiritual world he is referred to as the Universal Consciousness and in the religious world he is called upon as God who himself goes by many names; Jehovah, Allah and Brahman to only name a few. The name is relevant only in so far as it resonates with you. Whichever way you cut it, you come to this one unavoidable conclusion: there is but One Consciousness of which your consciousness is one part of the whole and therefore able to know whatever the

It has been proven that we are all part of the whole consciousness in so many ways. For example, someone is writing a book and has it published. It is released and the storyline is almost exactly what is happening in the world now, even though the book hit the shelves before the event occurred. “Black Monday” was written and released when we had a meltdown of our financial system almost within the same week of the books release. Writers will often speak about their difficulty with a concept otherwise know as writers block, but when they get the breakthrough it flows almost like automatic writing. Sometimes they have a dream, then create what they believe is an original idea, but it turns out that they tapped into the universal mind and the path of human kind. Several inventors often come up with an invention at the exact same time as someone from another part of the world who is creating the same invention. They did not know each other or know that anyone was working on the same idea as they were, only finding out when they get to the patent office realizing that someone just filed for a patent on their invention! The nature of the Universal Mind
So who is God? You and I -- we are part of the single Consciousness, the Universal Mind, which pervades the entire Universe. It is all knowing, all powerful, all creative and always present everywhere at the same time. You are connected to everything and everyone. You are already connected to what you need or want. To the degree that you truly comprehend and internalize this truth, you will be able to become the master of your mind and the director of your life.

44 Body Mind Spirit Guide | July 2014
Is your inability to lose weight rooted in your subconscious? A while back, my doctor had to go to the hospital for heart problems due to excess weight. He told me, “I had a lot of time to think while in the hospital. I asked myself, Do I really want to keep doing what I am doing to myself (i.e. overeating) knowing it could kill me?” He decided he would rather be alive than continue overeating the way he had been. Most people realize that being overweight affects your health. The fact is, being overweight increases your risks for a wide variety of medical problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, Type 2 Diabetes, cancer, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, gout, breathing problems such as sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing for short episodes during sleep) and asthma. It also affects legs, backs, ankles, etc. Obviously, it is in our best interest to lose the excess pounds if we are overweight. Not only would we be much healthier, but we would also feel better about ourselves, have higher self-esteem, more energy, look better, and have more energy to play and be more active. When one is overweight it is more difficult to stick to an exercise regime. (Who has the energy?) Knowing all of this, why are so many people still overweight? The truth is that many people have tried to lose weight, often many times. There are thousands of diet books, many organizations one can join, continuous articles about weight loss in magazines and newspapers, and many shows on TV talking about it. The question is, Why aren’t they working? You may have dieted many times. You lose some weight, get off the diet, and put the weight right back on--sometimes adding to it. This has been called “yo-yo dieting.” The question is, is there a way to lose the weight and keep it off? Fortunately, there is. The problem is that most of us do not address the real issues. Our conscious mind does, indeed, want to lose the weight, but our subconscious mind is not in agreement. Have you ever wondered why you sabotage your diet? Using will power alone does not usually work. Whenever there is a conflict between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind, the subconscious always wins.
Not only is hypnosis safe, but it is very effective. There is a great deal of misunderstanding about hypnosis. Hypnosis is really very safe. You are always aware of what is going on; you will not do anything in hypnosis that you wouldn’t do in your normal waking state. You are not under the spell of the hypnotist and you will not reveal any deep, dark secrets. If you were ever asked to do something that goes against your values or moral beliefs, you either would not respond or you would immediately come out of trance. In addition, you will only accept the healthy positive messages that you wish to accept. You are always free to choose. In fact, you are the one who really puts yourself into hypnosis. It can’t be forced upon you. If you do not want to go into a trance you will not go. It is similar to having a daydream. The first step is your willingness to engage the process of getting to the root of your subconscious beliefs. With hypnosis you can find out what unhealthy beliefs are in the subconscious mind, and you can then challenge or dispute them, and replace them with much healthier messages. In addition, people overeat for a wide variety of reasons. Some eat when bored, lonely, angry, scared, etc. There are many factors contributing to this unhealthy behavior, and unless they are addressed, it will be extremely difficult to lose the excess pounds. Part of the hypnosis session deals with the causes of overeating, and then helps you find better ways to deal with the issues you are faced with. You do not have to continue to suffer. You do not have to remain overweight. There is a solution. Phil Rosenbaum If you would like to find out more about hypnosis and how it can be helpful for weight loss or other issues, such as smoking, anxiety, self-esteem, etc., please call Phil R. at 248-688-6469. You can let go of the excess weight.

Thus you need to get your subconscious mind in agreement with your conscious mind if you want to be successful. One of the best ways to accomplish this is with the use of hypnosis. July 2014
