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)

4 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


Kabbalah Day to Day: ON FORGIVENESS Several years ago, a troubled and deranged man killed five Amish girls and seriously wounded five others. Subsequently, the families and community met to pray for forgiveness for the perpetrator and his family. Contrast this with the now familiar sight of aggrieved family members standing in courtrooms, wishing the victimizer of their friend or family member a gruesome death, or the pain of rotting in prison. The anger that we all feel when a loved one has been lost gives birth to the natural dynamic of revenge. Revenge is a form of anger. This was codified in ancient times as the Talion Principle of “an eye for an eye” and represents these primitive and reflective urges. Unchecked, such feelings resulted in repetitive “blood feuds” before more civilized means of dealing with wrongdoing were codified as Law. The Hebrew Kabbalah sees people as imbued with Godly traits. These traits are individually called, Sefirot. Each is a conduit for God’s grace, for the goodness he brings into the world. Each is effectively a counter to the world’s evil. Revenge is a distortion, or the shadow side of the Sefirot of Netzach. Netzach means victory and is derived from the Hebrew word menatze’ach, meaning “conductor” or “director”. It is the Sefirot, most applicable to governing the day to day interpersonal world. It is a focused love, the ability to see Gods love manifested toward a particular person who is suffering. Instead of cultivating anger in ourselves and instead of seeking revenge on a perpetrator we, as the Amish did, can counter the evil act by focusing love on those who suffer. Revenge perpetuates evil. In a more cosmic sense forgiveness helps us touch God by opening our hearts and letting His light in.

way. A family that is bearing grudges constantly, will soon break up. The same is true of the extended family of mankind. Additionally, there is the unpleasantness that bearing a grudge causes us internally…” As people, we come closer to God and heal the world (tiikun olam) through transcending revenge and bringing God’s light to bear on those who suffer. Anger and revenge block that light; forgiveness and compassion illuminate the darkness. Frederic Luskin is Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Project. He does research and teaches forgiveness training. Forgiveness is retraining ourselves to counter the instinctive anger (which Judaism defines as part of the animal soul), which we reflexively feel towards those who have directly hurt us or took something from our lives. Developing Forgiveness brings peacefulness, and in such a state we bring peace to others.

Intuitives Interactive Holistic Psychic Fair, October 5 The Intuitives Interactive group will host their Fall Holistic Psychic Fair on Sunday, October 5, 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. at the Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel, 3200 Boardwalk, Ann Arbor, 48108. Admission is $5 and doors open at 9:30 a.m. This fair, the group’s fourth such event in one and a half years, will entertain attendees with intuitive readers, energy and body workers, holistic vendors, and presentations. The Holistic Psychic Fair’s mission: “To enlighten the planet and further the concept of holistic living — Body, mind, and spirit!” The fair is sponsored by Body Mind Spirit Guide, Body Mind Spirit Radio, Crazy Wisdom Bookstore & Tea Room, and Crazy Wisdom Journal. “Our goal is to offer a transformative opportunity for people to heal and enlighten themselves at the Autumn Equinox,” said Amy Garber, fair director and co-founder of Intuitives Interactive. The last fair, in March at the Clarion Hotel, was so successful that the attendance overwhelmed the venue. The Fair has now moved to the Sheraton, a larger hotel with more free parking closeby (at Wolverine Tower, corner of Boardwalk and Eisenhower). The Sheraton is across State Street from Briarwood Mall, off I-94 exit 177. At the Fair, people can try out a new bodywork or energy modality, such as: Reflexolo-chi, Access Consciousness Bars, DNA activations, cord cuttings, Amethyst Biomat Bed, John of God Crystal Light Bed, Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy, energy and chakra balancing, Reiki, Eden October 2014

Energy Medicine, Psycho-NeuroEndocrine Balancing, aura clearing, ear acupuncture, hypnosis, aura photography, and more!

list tables with concierge service will allow clients to keep track of their appointments. Readings cost $30 for 20 minutes.

Along with the numerous healing opportunities will be a variety of holistic products for sale, including: tonics and wild-crafted brews, essential oils, stones and crystals, vibrational tools like tuning forks and singing bowls, tuning element jewelry, chakra dousers, Moringa plant products, smudgesticks, healing wands, Nerium oleander plant products, and body wraps.

While waiting for their readings, aside from patronizing the vendors, visitors can also attend any of four empowering presentations by purchasing tickets in the lobby for $5 each. The theme of the presentations, “Amp Up Your Frequency,” means that they go beyond the traditional lecture format to offer a beneficial experience that the audience participates in:

A big attraction at the Intuitives Interactive Fair is the readings. People seeking guidance will have a large range of readers to choose from: mediums (communicate with the departed), psychic intuitive readers, angel card readers, tarot card readers, channelers, animal communicators, palm reader, astrologer, psychic artists, numerologist, graphologists (handwriting analysis), aura readers, and chakra readers. Nearly 30 readers will be present, and most offer more than one type of reading. Those who intend to get readings at the Fair are urged to accelerate their decision process by visiting the website: www.intuitivesinteractive.com to choose in advance who they want to see. This fair operates differently from most psychic fairs regarding reading signup. “We want to keep the Reading Room as peaceful and private as possible, for the clients as well as for the readers,” explained Amy. “Instead of having attendees walk up to the readers’ tables and sign up for a reading there, which potentially interrupts another person’s reading, we take reservations and payments for readings centrally, in the lobby.” A new sign-up system for reading appointments will be used, and waiting w w w.

The activities include group discussions, presentations on metaphysical topics, psychic development exercises, and social time for people to get to know each other better. It meets on the first and third Sundays of the month from 2:30-4:30 pm at the Deep Spring Center for Meditation and Spiritual Inquiry on Packard Road in Ann Arbor.

Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott. Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen. On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement. 'Guess what, Mom,' he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'

8 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


Heredity and Healing The families we incarnate with are carefully chosen by our higher self, especially for us, for a number of reasons. Exploring these reasons, we may come to understand ourselves and our purpose in a given life and even across lifetimes. Before you incarnate, your true self has a clear idea of what you need to accomplish. You pick parents and other relatives to provide you with hereditary traits you need, as well as the experiences and relationships that will provide structure and direction for growth throughout your lifetime. Each of us on a higher level is an eternal spirit, a facet of God, evolving our soul through many lifetimes to be a vehicle for us within the world. Lifetimes are opportunities to develop soul qualities, gifts and strengths so that our eternal being can increasingly live and act within our soul. Seeing your life this way makes sense of a lot of the circumstances where you might ask yourself, “Why did I choose this experience?” “Whose idea was this!” It wasn’t the idea of your human level of being, it was the idea of your eternal self whose purposes can be hard to fathom! Let’s explore what your higher self might have been thinking when it designed these experiences for you! Looking at your family and the hereditary gifts they have, your higher self might have been seeking intuition, a musical ear, artistic capabilities or intellect, all of which run in families. There will also be cultural influences and opportunities, social skills and personality traits. Or, you might have been seeking a lack of certain things for a number of reasons as well. For instance, a non-nurturing family, abandonment or death of a parent may offer great opportunity for independent self-determination and freedom. A family with few financial means may actually October 2014

motivate achievement more strongly than a family with abundance. A person’s will power and courage may grow stronger due to these kinds of challenges. Sometimes, negative traits in families provide needed opportunities. A soul that is ready to grow strong will use negative family or social/cultural experiences to become someone opposite from those they grew up with. It can help a soul to overcome past negativity from earlier lifetimes and become a person of greater integrity and wholeness than if they’d had more positive qualities within their family. Families are often made up of people who have incarnated together in multiple lifetimes. Many of them are in the same soul group, meaning they are working on learning and developing the same qualities and gifts. Often there are a couple of different soul groups, quite often oppositional to each other. Oppositional relationships are significant motivators for soul growth, which is why they exist. The challenges presented often stimulate more growth than more optimal circumstances would. Where families have a long history of a particular negative trait, it is often the case that multiple members of the family are working to heal that trait. Where earlier ancestors may have manifested that negativity without conscience, having no compunction about it, later generations may begin to resolve those qualities and grow to be more conscious and positive. For example, with someone of your own generation looking at their past, their grandfather who was an alcoholic and rage –aholic may have ruled the family very harshly. Their father who was also an alcoholic and rage-aholic may feel bad about being that way and tried to be less violent and toxic--later in life they may have quit drinking and learned to be kinder. The person of your generation may have grown up choosing never to drink and by working through counseling or spiritual 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

healing become a kind and considerate individual, even in their closest relationships. Family healing across generations is tedious and slow, but looking back across time you can see how each generation has greater strength and integrity than the one previously. Because society as a whole is ascending to a higher vibration, consciousness and unity with our true selves, this trend toward greater enlightenment will continue to accelerate exponentially in the coming years. As you grow to understand and value the gifts that came with your family, be they positive or negative, you can heal the damage and optimize the benefits of the experience. Where there is lingering pain, fear or disease, think of it as a message from your higher self that there is still more opportunity for growth within those circumstances. You may not like that message, but I can assure you that you will like having the gifts and greater happiness in your life when the work is done. That is not to recommend you stay in an abusive relationship, but that you continue to grow and heal. If you are like most people, you wish the challenges would just go away and leave you alone! Keep persevering, you are in the workout gym of life and your higher self has a beautiful vision of who you are becoming. You are perfect where you are now, and will be amazing as you come into greater and greater levels of unity with your own unique facet of The One Source of Life.

10 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


Are YOU Losing the War with GRAVITY?

A Beautiful Heart One day a young man was standing in the middle of the town proclaiming that he had the most beautiful heart in the whole valley. A large crowd gathered and they all admired his heart for it was perfect. There was not a mark or a flaw in it. Yes, they all agreed it truly was the most beautiful heart they had ever seen. The young man was very proud and boasted more loudly about his beautiful heart. Suddenly, an old man appeared at the front of the crowd and said "Why, your heart is not nearly as beautiful as mine." The crowd and the young man looked at the old man's heart. It was beating strongly, but it was full of scars. It had places where pieces had been removed and other pieces put in, but they didn't fit quite right and there were several jagged edges. In fact, in some places there were deep gouges where whole pieces were missing. The people stared -- how can he say his heart is more beautiful, they thought?

* Shoulders rounded and tense? * Are you less flexible than you use to be? * Chronic hip, neck or lower back pain? * Does your body feel beaten down & compressed? Structural Integration (Rolfing") can:

* Improve your posture dramatically * Assist in breathing easier and deeper * Improve your game (yoga, golf, etc.) * Make being in your body joyous and uplifting Check out our Youtube videos on the rolfmagic chanel.

The young man looked at the old man's heart and saw its state and laughed. "You must be joking," he said. "Compare your heart with mine. Mine is perfect and yours is a mess of scars and tears." "Yes," said the old man, "yours is perfect looking but I would never trade with you. You see, every scar represents a person to whom I have given my love - I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them, and often they give me a piece of their heart which fits into the empty place in my heart, but because the pieces aren't exact, I have some rough edges, which I cherish, because they remind me of the love we shared." "Sometimes I have given pieces of my heart away, and the other person hasn't returned a piece of his heart to me. These are the empty gouges -- giving love, is taking a chance. Although these gouges are painful, they stay open, reminding me of the love I have for these people too, and I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting. So now do you see what true beauty is?" The young man stood silently with tears running down his cheeks. He walked up to the old man, reached into his perfect young and beautiful heart and ripped a piece out. He offered it to the old man with trembling hands. The old man took his offering, placed it in his heart and then took a piece from his old scarred heart and placed it in the wound in the young man's heart. It fit, but not perfectly, as there were some jagged edges.

The young man looked at his heart, not perfect anymore but more beautiful than ever, since love from the old man's heart flowed into his. October 2014

HEALING, THE NATURAL WAY OF LIFE Healing is very simple, because it is a natural ability all of us share. We were born to heal, and many of us have had the experience of reaching out to touch a person who is sick or injured in some way. It is a natural instinct to channel love energy from the strong to the weak. A mother gives healing when her child bangs his knee and she rubs it to make it feel better or embraces the child in her arms. This is a kind of unconscious healing, where the energetically weaker draws upon the energetically stronger individual. Healing is the natural way of life. When we consciously give healing, we are following natural principles, and this helps to attune us to the great laws of creation. When we hear that a friend or neighbor, someone we love, or even someone on the other side of the world is sick or suffering, our natural urge is to reach out and touch that person. Through distant, or absent healing, we can do just that. We can touch others, not just physically with ouron hands, even more our love. “Helping You Back thebutRoad toprofoundly Good with Health” By using this technique, we can send the higher aspects of love out across the ethers of space to another soul anywhere in the world.

the same place, looking down at the ground, and walking on. When we arrived at the spot, we saw a wild rabbit in the middle of the path, stretched out, completely motionless. It must have been there for quite some time. Beryl and I prayed that God's healing power might flow to this wild rabbit. After a few minutes it wriggled its nose and moved slightly. Greatly encouraged by this we continued our prayer that this animal was helped in whatever way was best for it. After a few minutes the rabbit sat up in true rabbit style, wiggled its ears, hopped and jumped a few times, and then ran off into the undergrowth out of sight!”

We had a similar experience with a bird that was lying, apparently dead, in our driveway. We both knelt down and gave healing to the poor bird that had probably been caught by a passing cat. The bird did not move and Gary went to get a shovel. Chrissie continued to give healing for a few minutes and then went indoors. Then, we both came out ready to bury the bird when we saw a miraculous thing. The bird was taking some labored but definite breaths; then incredibly it moved a few feet and lay under a bush and finally passed away. The healing had given the bird the strength it needed to pass on peacefully. Chrissie Blaze is an author and experienced healer/teacher. She will be teaching an intensive one-day healing workshop on Saturday, October 25 (see ad for details). The number of students is limited to 15, so please reserve your place soon. In this workshop, people new to healing as well as experienced healers will learn the powerful and effective King technique of hands-on healing that Chrissie has used effectively for over thirty years. They will also learn the distant healing technique referred to in this article, and many other aspects of healing. www.chrissieblaze.com.

3 Simple Ways to Find Peace in Fast Pace Have you ever noticed how much space we have in our days? We are all busy, chasing the end of a to-do list, that it may not seem like there is any space. More often than not, we’re moving at such a fast pace that we often forget to breathe, literally using phrases like, “I’ll get back to you once I catch my breath.” And when we finally slow down, are we able to become mindful of the space in between? The pause between the inhale and the exhale. The crevice between an event and our response to it. Or even the margin in between you and someone you love. We don’t always think about life in this way, as in our striving, accomplishment-driven, technologysaturated world, we are constantly asked to focus our attention outward, on the next car, house, job, piece of clothing, or latest gadget (and while you’re at it, check out never-ending news feeds, pictures, articles, and dancing cat animations!) We rarely give ourselves permission to just be still and take notice of… life. At least I never did. As a newly minted 30-year old, I felt a force to be still after being diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. The body acts as a red light, telling us to stop and pay attention. When we hear that we’re “sick,” this affects the mind and body in the respect that our sense of control and mental acuity is dulled, even in the most optimistic of us. It is a vulnerable, strange place, where we may have an amplified sense of helplessness.

We tend to retreat into our unconscious, default pattern when relating to the conditions of not only illness, but every day life. Mine was to push through, as if my strength hadn’t changed, only to be brought to my knees. I needed family and close friends to remind me that it was OK to rest, taking time and space for myself. When the fast-lane came to a standstill, I was able to begin to notice the space, and come to an overall reverence for life. In beginning to observe the energy I was bringing into the space in life, I realized that we have the ability to choose what goes into that space. Even if we’re not ill, we sometimes come across reminders of mindfulness, sometimes in the form of a traumatic event, that wakes us up to our automatic pilot so that we can pause before we repeat behaviors that are no longer useful in our lives. Mindfulness does not have to be complex and does not require sitting in a cave for years, away from the world. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Below are three simple ways to be mindful without struggle, in a fastpaced, stress-filled, go-go-go world. 1) Listen. Sound is a sweet place to start understanding what it means to be mindful. It is outside of ourselves and happens on its own without our needing to do anything except be willing to listen. The intention to listen is enough, because sound comes to you. 2) Come to your breath. As a yoga teacher, of course, in every yoga class, the first thing we always do is come to the breath. Start to take note of your breathing pattern without changing a thing. Just noticing how you’re breathing. Is it shallow? Short? Rapid? Wherever you find your breath, start by becoming aware of your breathing pattern and then, change it.

Lengthen into deep breaths, filling the belly in inhales, noticing the space, and then exhaling pushing the belly button in toward the spine. When we slow and deepen our breathing pattern, we slow our thoughts which inform our energy and our energy creates our experiences. 3) Examine any feelings as they are expressed in the body. This puts distance between thought and feeling, which makes it more manageable, particularly if you feel emotions strongly. As we drop judgment of what we’re feeling and accept whatever is being felt, it becomes an opportunity to learn from it and know that it’s transitory, with no wrong response. Everything that occurs and arises in life is an opportunity for mindfulness. Forget having the absolute perfect spot to meditate. Become mindful during your commute or sneak it in between meetings at work. You get to choose what it is that refocuses your attention here and now. Pausing gives you this moment, where you are free from the chains of the past and released from the anxiety of the future. You are in the space between your thoughts. This space is expansive, grounding, calm, and peace. This space is sacred and shows up whenever and wherever you call on it.

14 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


Expanding into Oneness What would it take to be in the oneness of who you truly are? Have you ever completed a workshop or an energy session and you had this awesome sensation of yummyness? And then you thought, wow, how can I hold onto this? And then it just slipped away. What if holding onto it was what made it slip away? This sensation you had was more like space and you tried to solidify it and stabilize it. I look at it as trying to hold onto water. Go ahead, fill the sink in your bathroom or kitchen with water. Now try to grasp a handful of that water. Can't do it can you? What would it take to be that energy, space and consciousness that you truly be? What if you could expand into that space of being? Does that feel lighter to you? Let me tell you what I mean by that. Ya see, in this space of embodiment we were led to believe that we are just this body. That we are our body. That just isn't true. It is one of the biggest lies ever perpetrated on you. You, the being are much more than that. You come into embodiment, not just the body you have, but the entirety of the space around you. You have consciousness, well at least some of the time. And everything is energy. What if you chose to be that energy, space and consciousness? What would it take? Expansion Exercise If you haven't heard of the Access Consciousness? Expansion Exercise before or even if you have, I'll run you through it here. The first step is to close your eyes, however, you can keep your eyes open. Now get a sense of the outside edges of you the being, not just your body. You the Being. This might be a few inches out from your body or it might be further out. Now with your awareness, expand out to fill to the edges of the room you are in. Expand your awareness out about 50 feet in all directions. Above you below you and all around you. Get a sense of that space of you. Fill it up with you.

you are INFINITE

west

end yoga

Now go out 25 miles in each direction, up, down and all around. What do you notice? Expand yourself out 500 miles in each direction. Notice what you sense. Go out 10,000 miles, now 350,000 miles, to the edges of the solar system. Know that this does not require any effort. As soon as you start to think it, you're there. Expand out to the edges of the Milky Way Galaxy. Ok, now to the edges of the known Universe and beyond. What do you know from this space? Now from that space, pull energy from all over the Universe into your body. From this space, be the gratitude and knowing that you are an infinite being. Know that at anytime and anywhere you can just choose to be this space of embodiment. This is the real you. The real oneness. Great job!

Sweet Deception Anyone who knows me knows I love staying busy. The schedule I keep at my office starts about nine in the morning and usually doesn’t end until after midnight. A busy schedule like this doesn’t include time for leisurely lunches - and skipping lunch isn’t a healthy option. Like many in today’s fast paced world, I’m in constant search of the perfect brown bag lunch that tastes good while providing enough energy to last throughout the day. I started scrutinizing how much sugar was in my food when I noticed that the different foods I was eating influenced the amount of energy I had to take me through the rest of the day. When I realized that even the sm allest amount of sugar consumed in my healthy lunch decreased my energy, I thought about all the little ghosts and goblins collecting mountains of sugary treats on Halloween. And it was time to share my research. Energy in the form of sugars is a complex thing. Most authorities assume that sugar was the primary fuel for powering bodies, yet sugar is very complex and potentially dangerous. It appears to me that it was most likely a secondary system with fat metabolism having been the primary system. Most likely, sugar burning came into play as a more primary source of energy after climate changes forced us to store large amounts of body fat to survive harsh winters when food was scarce. Nowadays, we don’t starve during the winter. Yet, we usually eat as if to store body fat, especially in the fall. Since this fat is also the mechanism for storing toxins, toxic fat is harder to access and burn. The body doesn’t want to rerelease stored poisons back into the system. All fruits contain a combination of glucose and fructose in addition to vitamins and minerals. The group of simple sugars (Monosaccharides) includes glucose (dextrose), fructose (levulose), and galactose. Glucose is used by every cell in the body for energy while fructose goes to the liver where it turns into fats for storage. When this fat is able to be accessed for fuel, it turns into ketones the same way coconut oil fuels the cells without the use of insulin. In order to utilize glucose for energy, cells need insulin from the pancreas to open up the cells to allow the glucose in. The more glucose, or sugar in the blood, the more insulin is needed

to open the cells. The pancreas of a diabetic does not produce enough insulin get the proper amount of sugar into their cells to keep them operating correctly. Therefore, they must obtain glucose from an outside source. Research is available which shows how excess sugar consumption leads to obesity and many chronic diseases, including cancers and diabetes. Many health authorities, including Dr. Russell Blaylock, contend that sugar directly fuels cancer cell growth. For these reasons, it is unfortunate that many people do not realize that sugar is so dangerous. The sugar that creates the most problems is fructose. The positive side of fructose in its natural form is that it saved our ancestors from starving when food was scarce. It also helped keep them warm by providing insulating fat. On the negative side, fructose goes straight to the liver and produces unhealthy belly fat. Its mechanism turns off leptin, the hormone in fat that acts as a feedback loop to say we are full and that we should stop eating. This process was researched by Dr. Robert Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics in the division of Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco.\ Dr. Lustig found that when fructose goes to the liver, it turns into a type of cholesterol, called VLDL, and blood fats, called triglycerides. VLDL (very low density lipoprotein) is actually a form of cholesterol that you should pay attention to because it is associated with an increased risk of high blood pressure and stroke. Fructose also elevates uric acid (which is very important as this is what can cause Gout), decreases nitric oxide, and causes smooth muscle cells to contract, increases angiotensin which also constricts blood vessels, further raises blood pressure, and can lead to ED in men (may also affect women’s responsiveness), and damage the kidneys. All of this leads to low level inflammation and chronically inflamed blood vessels which can lead to heart attack, stroke, chronic inflammatory cancers, and metabolic syndrome. Indicators of high uric acid levels can be found through a simple blood test, yet I hardly ever see it when I review blood tests. It should run 3.5 to 5. Ask for that test as part of your next blood panel. Fructose is added to processed foods because it’s approximately 20% cheaper than other sugars when used as a sweetener. Like all other refined sugars, this fructose has been stripped of the naturally occurring minerals and enzymes.

16 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


When you eat refined sugars, your body must steal minerals from other parts of the body. This is why you might experience soreness after consuming these sugars. The lack of minerals is the reason most people overeat without their body saying it has had enough. The cellular memory system recalls binge eating that involves real food but not with refined foods so the process gets repeated. Raw honey is the food exception when it comes to fructose due to what is called the fructose paradox. Since most processed foods are laced with altered sugars of various types, and chemically manufactured artificial sweeteners, it is difficult to avoid these sugars. Fruits in their natural form may be consumed in moderation because they include fiber and naturally occurring minerals. Fruits are not meant to be juiced as that removes the fiber that helps handle the sugar in the digestive system. However, they can be liquefied in high end blenders. Dr. William H.

Who is your inner child? You inner child is the part of you that is referred to as the, child within, divine child or true self. In most cases, you may have several inner children that are all a part of you, looking to feel safe again, looking for love and emotional healing and self-worth. In order to feel whole again, a person must give their inner child a healing outlet, a way to feel validated, hopeful and loved. As an adult, if your inner child is not fully whole or healed, he or she will come out and react in many irrational ways that were formed in early childhood - usually from trauma, neglect and often due to family dynamics where parents did not have the tools to fulfill the child's basic needs, creating an unmet need for the inner child to learn how to cope with it. The inner child is a part of us that has its very own separate demands, problems, desires and goals. These will all cross over into our adult life. If you notice any of the following in your life, you have an inner child or inner children that need to be healed in order to feel whole again. Communication problems, anger, negative, co-dependent or dysfunctional relationships, emotional trauma and addictions such as food or substance abuse - these often come from the injured inner child, desperately trying to get his needs met. What is Inner Child Healing and how do we do it? Childhood patterns, behaviors, thoughts and defenses are created at a young age, often in childhood. Family dynamics can play a big role along with severe trauma, abuse and neglect. Inner child healing provides a positive inner resource for the individual to meet the inner child needs and create new positive inner child responses. While in a hypnotic state, the hypnotherapist uses different processes and techniques that help guide and support the inner child and free them from frozen patterns and childhood perceptions so they can feel whole again. Clients who experience unexplained difficulties in their lives resulting from earlier childhood trauma, anxiety and stress can benefit from inner child healing, also called age regression therapy. Unhealed areas such as problematic communication, anger issues, dysfunctional relationships, addictions and co-dependency are often the result of a wounded inner

18 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


child. This technique allows the client to recall past perceptions, thoughts and feelings. The hypnotherapist helps the client reframe negative thoughts, feelings and perceptions and allows the client to see how the past childhood trauma is affecting their current life situation. They will help the client release the blocks and barriers and eliminate their past trauma. Our subconscious minds run our current behaviors and habits. With hypnosis, a skilled hypnotherapist who specializes in inner child healing work or regression therapy, can help clients reframe their thinking and get rid of unwanted behaviors permanently that no longer serve the client. What are the benefits of Inner Child Healing work? According to Book author John Bradshaw there are 6 steps to help heal the inner child: Trust: Trusting that your adult self will be there and help him or her work through all those emotions feelings in a safe and loving environment. Validation: Realizing what happened to you was not your fault and accept that your parents did the best job they could and stop blaming yourself, realizing they are also wounded children too. Shock and Anger: Starting to understand and dealing with the emotional traumas and wounded child is part of the healing process and in order to move forward and be whole we first recognize the cause. Sadness: We must learn to process and grieve any feelings of betrayal, could have been, should have been and our unfilled developmental needs. Remorse: Grieving remorse and abandonment from any childhood traumas or circumstances we had no control over and realize there is nothing we could have been, said or done differently. Telling that wounded inner child they were just a kid and they're ok. Loneliness: Grieving many core feelings such as shame and loneliness allows them an outlet, and embracing those feelings of shame and loneliness are the steps to helping heal your own inner child. If we are able to willingly accept and allow them to come out, we become whole and healed and our inner child feels safe, loved and worthy. If you are interested in learning more about healing your inner child, join me for an upcoming 4 week workshop series on, Reconnecting With Your Inner Child. In this series, you will learn how to re-connect with your inner child and become a loving parent to them. You will also re-discover those old hidden talents and interests your inner child enjoyed and has long forgotten! Heather Williams has been a certified practicing hypnotherapist and speaker for over 9 years. She received her certification from Clinical Hypnosis Institute in Warren, MI, and her Bachelors in Psychology from Walden University. She has worked with numerous clients individually and in group settings, helping them reach their true potential and make lasting, permanent changes in their lives.

Are Your Negative Core Beliefs Holding You Down?

successful; you are entitled to happiness; you deserve to be prosperous; you can accomplish your goals; you are good enough; you can win, etc. If you held these beliefs there is no doubt your life would be different. Changing these negative beliefs into much more positive beliefs would lead to a much happier and more successful life.

Perhaps you may have heard about Joe Vitale. He was at one time homeless. Now he is a multi-millionaire.

If people have a diseased organ or decayed tooth, they can get surgery and get rid of the unhealthy part. But what if the unhealthy part is their thinking? What is required is akin to mental surgery, which will enable you to get rid of the defective thinking and replace it with healthy positive thoughts and beliefs. The problem is that many of these beliefs are long standing and do not go away easily. They are held in the subconscious part of the brain. Unless that is addressed, you will not change.

An interesting remarks he made was, “Your beliefs are software for the mind.” Many of the “self-help gurus” say basically the same thing: if you change your beliefs, you can change your life. There is a similar idea from Henry Ford who stated, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t-you’re right.” Believing you can succeed is so important that it literally will dictate whether you succeed or fail at whatever you attempt to succeed at. Take two individuals. One has the attitude or belief, “I can accomplish pretty much whatever I want to accomplish.” The other has the belief, “I’ll never succeed.” Who do you think is going to be successful? While it is quite apparent that the one with the positive beliefs will do better, many people hold on to negative, self-defeating beliefs and wonder why they are not getting what they want out of life. You might believe other people are just luckier, or they have better genes, or that they have innate talent. Or you might feel you are not worthy or smart enough or that you don’t deserve to be successful. But this is not true. How is it that, for a period of time, Joe Vitale was homeless, with very low self-esteem, and now he is extremely successful? The answer is that he changed his beliefs. His genes did not change. His innate ability did not change. He did not have some secret ability that most people lack. The reason he became so successful is because he changed his thoughts. He started to believe in himself. He started to believe he could be successful. What if you were able to change your negative beliefs into these more positive ones: You are worthy; you deserve to be

There is a very effective and painless way to do this. It is with the use of hypnosis. Through hypnosis, you can change these subconscious “core beliefs” and replace them with much healthier and more rational beliefs. When this is done, your life can really take off. It’s as if you’ve been dragging a 1000-pound ball behind you and you just let it go. How much relief would you get from that! Think of how much easier your life would become. You could easily accomplish goals that before seemed practically impossible. That is the power of hypnosis. It’s safe, it’s quick, it’s effective and it feels good. You can become happier now. Are you ready to get rid of those old self-destructive beliefs that have been causing you so much pain and unhappiness? You can change now or wait for years and hope to change. The choice is up to you. If you want a better life, why wait? You do deserve it. Get rid of those negative core beliefs that are causing so much distress. Hypnosis works and is very effective in releasing the core negative beliefs for good. Don’t delay. Call Phil Rosenbaum at the Self-Esteem Academy, 248-688-6469 to learn more.

Fast Weight-Loss Made So Easy… I lost 100 lbs. the first year after gastric bypass surgery, but then I didn’t lose anything for a year later. I heard about Dr Reggish and his nutritional evaluation for $45. I decided to try his weight loss program. Doc told me what foods I could eat and the foods to avoid. My first week I lost an amazing 17 lbs and my second week was 15 lbs. My third week I lost 11 lbs for a total loss of 43 lbs. It was easy and he didn’t restrict my calories. I could eat as much food as I wanted. Thanks Dr. Reggish, Anette B., Saginaw, Mi. I’m not good with diets and I cheated my first week and I still lost 8 lbs. My second week I was good and lost 12 more pounds. Its been 4 weeks now and I’ve lost a total of 36 lbs. I’m amazed how easy this program was. Dr. Reggish, you’re the best. Chelse C., Allen Park I came to see Dr. Reggish for weight loss for myself and my daughter. After one week I lost 7 lbs, (I cheated) and my daughter lost 18 lbs.(She didn’t cheat) Our 2nd week, I was better and lost 11 more lbs. My daughter lost 15 lbs. Not only did we lose weight, but our energy really inproved and our skin looks great. Also I am no longer constipated. We love our Dr Reggish Troy B. and Mom., Madison Hgts., Mi. I read about Dr Reggish and his holistic approach to getting people well. I was overweight, always tired and was told that I had fibromyalgia. I wasn’t sleeping because of terrible hot flashes and night sweats. My first week I lost 11 lbs and was shocked because Doc didn’t put me on a diet. The 2nd week I lost another 9 lbs. and was no longer having hot flashes or night sweats. 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. I heard about Dr Reggish and made an appt. He only charges $45 for his nutritional evaluation. I suffered 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 10 lbs. And in my 2nd week, I lost 12 lbs, and in my third week I lost another 8

lbs. I feel amazing. I now have lots of energy, no sugar cravings and the brain fog is gone. I’m no longer depressed or constipated. Dr Reggish is a blessing. Barb N., Toledo, Ohio

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.

Losing Weight Made Easy They say 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. 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. 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 body’s use of fat as a fuel. So October 2014

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. 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 carbrich 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. 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, 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 call it a drug. Based on this information, I do not 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

recommend most patients use the “eat all foods in moderation” idea. If a food is addictive, the only way to avoid “setting off” the addiction is to avoid that food completely for a short time till 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. So 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. If you’re allergic to foods, then you’ll crave these foods and you’ll never lose weight.

Food Of The Month: Root Vegetables Parsnips, Carrots, Sweet potato, Daikon, Turnips, do you know what all these vegetables have in common? They are all root vegetables. Just like the name implies, it is the root of the plant. This is the strong, constrictive, downward moving energy of the plant, what we refer to as, yang. These root vegetables have the strong grounding energy that many of us are missing. Most people who consume the average American diet, are consuming many overly sweet foods, desserts, sodas, smoothies and tropical fruits. All of these foods are considered, yin. And most people only consume vegetables that grow on top of the ground: lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli and kale. And while these foods from Mother Earth are nutritious for you, we need to consider the energy of all the foods we are consuming. We need a balance between both the yin and yang energy foods. Unfortunately, many people are not familiar with the more grounding, yang energy root vegetables. Parsnips are mildly sweet and creamy when cooked. They are high in silicon, fiber, calcium, potassium, Vitamin A and C. Carrots, have a wonderful sweet taste and are high in calcium phosphorus, Vitamin A and B vitamins. Daikon is in the radish family. When eaten raw it is pungent, but when cooked it becomes slightly sweet. It is great for digestion, and contains a substance that inhibits the formation of carcinogens in the body. Turnips are in the cabbage family and have high anticarcinogenic properties. Sweet Potatoes are rich and creamy and are the sweetest of the bunch. They are high in vitamin A and C and Calcium. All these naturally sweet, root vegetables also feed and nurture the spleen, pancreas and stomach. Here is a simple stew that highlights the individual flavors of these root vegetables. October 2014

Sensology By Kiera D. Laike, IRW As a fully developed human contains the reflection of all that is within the Universe, a theory of being must also reflect all those aspects. It is from this knowing that I brought the theory of Sensology into form. Sensology begins with the understanding of humans as energetic, developmental beings. Humans’ energetic development as in all development, occurs in a specific sequence, mirroring the sequences that occur in all forming with in the Universe. Within the Universe, structures form through a beautiful complex dance between photon light and ordinary matter, or in the case of humans, photon light and bio-photon light. Development begins through a complex pulse relationship. These pulse relationships creating complex structures, each giving us avenues of complex communication. Structures communicating then create a process which ultimately moves the structures into their rightful position, reflecting in the Universe. As humans, our pulse relationships are laid out in Sensology in the 13 Energetic Developmental Stages of Humans, the mastering of which gives us the first avenues of connection. I invite you to be with this brief awakening to Sensology.

A Journey into Sensology By Abbe J. Grossman, MA, CPT I began training in Sensology in 2004. At that time I had spent three decades exploring and adopting different healing modalities. I have experienced none more to the point than Sensology. Other modalities held that the keys to our full potential lies inside of us, and yet lacked methods for accessing those keys. After decades of practicing, my fullest potential was yet to be unlocked. Sensology and the Embodied Practice taught me the opposite -that our fullest potential, the emergence of our soul essence in the physical body, cannot occur until we have developed the internal energetic structures that facilitate the emergence of that potential. In a word, what we need does not yet live inside of us - we must bring it in as we develop. At an early age I became aware of how emotions took on an energetic form in people’s bodies. I sensed that we could access unlimited information and healing potential. That potential, however, was yet to take full form within me. Embodied Practice and Sensology’s 13 Energetic and Developmental Stages of Humans, gave me the sequence of stages, and the step-by-step healing practices that facilitated my energetic development. Just as a child’s physical development from embryo to adulthood follows a sequence, so does our

energetic development. It begins in utero as babies begin to bond with the photon light of their soul essence energy. This photon light then moves into what Kiera refers to as the beautiful complex dance between the photon light of soul essence and the bio-photon light of the baby’s developing body. As I moved through the 13 Energetic Stages, and developed the internal structures I needed, this potential grew. I began to sense and see, the energy underlying relationship challenges, health issues and emotions. Through my embodied development, I no longer had asthma, chronic fatigue or back pain. In daily life as my energy structures organized internally, I had more energy, needed less sleep and become more organized and present. While I can name these changes, words are not adequate for the most fundamental ones. I began to sense myself as the reflection of my soul essence. I saw the world through my soul essence lens,. Through these embodied structures I sensed the ongoing communication with information and healing energy of my soul essence, and the electromagnetic fields of Earth and Sky. I developed internal structures, including the container of my electromagnetic field energy or aura. With this container, I could be deeply present with clients and family without absorbing their energy or emotions. While I was at times frustrated, struggling to understand the new words and concepts, and working to release the need for full and immediate cognitive understanding, the journey has been well worth it. I saw the changes in my clients, through working with embodied energies that I always knew were possible. I experienced the satisfaction beyond words that comes when we create through our soul essence. In short order, my clients’ doctors began decreasing or taking them off medication for asthma, arthritis, bi-polar disorder, depression and anxiety. As their soul essence structured their energy centers in the body formed, they gained the skills to create in their lives: they resolved relationships, found new jobs, and become more physically energized. Through the development of these inner structures, their soul essence became the key to beginning the journey to their full potential. Kiera D.

ROCK OF THE MONTH: Rock crystal, The Master Healer: Clear Quartz

There is a Reason You’re Here!

Quartz Crystal is a must for rock lovers! It is the basic, go to stone and partners well with most other stones. Ancient Greeks thought that this stone was water that had frozen so hard that it could never thaw. They, therefore, referred to it as the “rock” crystal! Quartz is valued in the technological industry since it can transform mechanical energy into electromagnetic energy and vice versa, making it a valuable component in microphones, computer chips, televisions, and radio transmitters. Quartz is considered a Master healer. When held in the hand, it strengthens the energy field by at least double the intensity. It is known to remove blockages, and balance the physical, mental, and emotional bodies. Quatrz is an amplifier of energy. When used in combination with other stones, the effect is synergistically enhanced. Quartz can amplify both energy and thoughts. It is said to be a stone of great power. It is the stone to use to provide harmony and peace. It attunes to the heart energy and can be used to clear and activate all the energy centers of the body. In Atlantis and Lemuria, clear quartz was used as the stone of rejuvenation. Clear quartz is used for every aspect of prayer and healing including meditation, chakra balancing, past life work, expanding consciousness, attracting wealth and love and almost anything else you can imagine!

Empowerment: Writing a New Story © By Roger Moore, PhD Each of us has our own stories that we carry and hold onto. These stories are sometimes comedic, sometimes tragic, sometimes traumatic and seldom true in this moment. Sadly, too often we use these stories as if they were scripts to live by leaving us stuck in the past and restraining our future. These past dramas can define the role we live and limit us from being who we truly are in this moment. We make up meanings about our life's experiences and traumas and then we tell these stories over and over to ourselves and to anyone who will listen. Stories may be tales of "I'm not good enough", "I'm not important", "Life is not safe" "I'm a failure" or any of a multitude of limiting beliefs and decisions that are disempowering. The more we tell these stories, like ruts in a road, the more engrained they become and the more we believe these tales as truth. We forget that we are resilient and have the ability to write a new story. Resilience is an innate capacity to "bounce back" from difficulty. When we are mindful and living in the now we can create a new story that is based in this moment. Doing so, we can face the challenges and crises of our lives skillfully and flexibly. We can change our beliefs and our decisions about ourselves and about life. Resilience develops through experience. "Positive" and "negative" experiences cause neurons in the brain to "fire." Repeated experiences cause the same neurons to fire again. "Neurons that fire together wire together." As these repeated experiences cause neurons to fire

again and again, they strengthen the connections between them. This repetitive firing create neural circuits and pathways that make it likely we will respond to the same or similar situation in ways that we have responded before. In this way, we are using the same old story to live out life. All these survival responses are normal and, in their own way, resilient: they keep us alive so that we can thrive another day. In its beginning, an old story or pattern of behavior may have helped us to be resilient and to survive, but today it can be detrimental and use that same script to act out current life experiences. It's as if we are hard wired to be our story and live life as if this story is true today. Then the amygdala is more likely to generate a stress response, perceiving danger or threat even where there may not be any. These stories in and of themselves can create fear, stress and anxiety opening a flood gate of cortisol that destroys brain cells, suppresses the immune system, preventing new neurons from firing and wiring together and ultimately inhibiting resilience. There is hope! We are resilient and we can write a whole new story and direct a new way of being and living. Empowerment is post traumatic growth. We can use those old past experiences and traumas of life as a mechanism for learning and change which is empowering.

attention to your feet on the floor, your butt in the chair and take a deep breath into your nose and out through your mouth, centering yourself within yourself. · Identify a habitual negative thought ("I'm not good enough", "I'm not important", "Life is not safe" "I'm a failure") that you would like to use as a cue to practice rewiring your brain. · Identify the new response you would like to substitute: "I am good enough," "I am important," "I am safe," "I am a success." · Identify a positive code word or phrase you will use to break the circuit and cue you to change the channel in your brain: "Love," "Safe," "Peace," "Breathe" .... The choice of words is up to you: what's important is to use the cue as soon as you identify the trigger, to prevent yourself from falling into your old, conditioned reaction. Practice saying your cue word to yourself while you're in that actual state so that your brain conditions itself to shift to that state when it registers the cue. · Each time the trigger arises, wiggle your toes, wiggle your butt, breathe in and breathe out and practice the new pattern of response: say your cue word and shift to the state you've chosen as the new experience (for example, self compassion) as many times as you need to for the new pattern to become the new habit.

Here is a simple mindfulness exercise that you can use to begin to rewire your brain:

· Notice as the old pattern fades away into the background and the new pattern becomes more automatic. You have conditioned new learning in your brain, and you have learned that you can do so. Take in the sense of success and mastery as you experience the actual rewiring in your brain.

We can intentionally change our

But, how do we do this when our neurology is hard wired to be stuck in the past and our body is creating the stress hormone cortisol reinforcing those old stories?

neurochemistry to change our physiological state. A combination of mindfulness tools such as selfhypnosis, meditation and prayer along with somatic tools allow us to activate the release of oxytocin in the brain. Oxytocin is the neurochemical basis for the felt sense of safety and trust, of connection and belonging. Here, we can be mindful. We can be present and conscious in this moment: mindful - aware of feet on the floor, but in the chair and aware of breath. In this moment, we are "OK". We may be experiencing fear, anger, hurt, sadness or pain, but we are still "OK". This moment is the beginning of empowerment. When even in the midst of fear and pain we are still "OK," we have the power of choice. We can choose to stay stuck in the old story and live as we have always lived or we can step into our power and be and do differently. A single event of writing a new story and being and doing differently than we have in the past can create lifelong change. The more we use this new story of empowerment the more times new neurons fire together and will wire together. Resilience is the capacity to respond to pressures and tragedies quickly, adaptively, and effectively. When we stop telling the old story, those old disempowering neurons will actually separate allowing us to be our empowered self. The empowered self knows "I am good enough," "I am loveable," "I am safe," and "I am powerful!"

Healing Power of the Circle The Circle has healing power. In the Circle we are all equal. When in the Circle, no one is in front of you and no one is behind you. No one is above you. No one is below you. The Sacred Circle is designed to create unity. The Hoop of Life is also a circle. On this hoop there is a place for every species, every race, every tree, and every plant. It is this completeness of Life that must be respected in order to bring about health on this planet. To understand each other, as the ripples when a stone is tossed into the waters, the Circle starts small and grows...until it fills the whole lake. Dave Chief, Oglala Lakota, Grandson of Red Dog of Crazy Horse's Band

Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard. -Standing Bear

Now let me suggest first that if we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective. No individual can live alone; no nation can live alone, and as long as we try, the more we are going to have war in this world. Now the judgment of God is upon us, and we must either learn to live together as brothers or we are all going to perish together as fools. ~Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr P a g e 35

SUGAR CRAVINGS ARE TO DIE FOR… Are sugars addictive? Ask anyone who is trying to lose weight or someone who feels tired all the time. You’ll likely decide they definitely are. Refined sugars make you feel better temporarily, causing a sharp rise in blood sugar which then quickly plummets. This leads to lowered energy and negative moods and creates a craving to bring the sugar levels back up. Like heroin, alcohol, and morphine, refined sugars activate endorphins to give a euphoric feeling. People find themselves gorging on sweets even though they know it will eventually make them feel terrible. Many studies link refined sugar to insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver, high blood pressure, heart disease, chronic inflammation, high triglycerides, dental caries, and other adverse effects including weight gain. This reacts on the adrenal glands causing a rapid adrenaline rise which can lead to hyperactivity and creates difficulty concentrating by “cranking up” the nervous system. Ever witness a child on a “sugar high”? The adult reaction is quite similar. Social restraints keep us from acting out, but the urges are there, nevertheless. So what can you do to help yourself get off your addictive roller coaster since you know that you want to help yourself reduce the risk of obesity and the many health problems that go with it?

The Guest House Tasting love in your cells and feeling the divine expressing through your life starts with self-acceptance. Holding within your psyche that you are both a fragile, vulnerable human and a magnificent, gifted, powerful being is one key to happiness. Most of us are identified as broken and insecure, or powerful and amazing. But what if we are all both? We all have the duality of our humanity and our divinity. This perceived separation and contrast is more apparent to those that dare to achieve. For example, most gifted artists don’t have the psychological foundation to handle their talents. Experiencing the genius of their craft while having the vulnerabilities of being human can drive someone mad. I understand why Robin Williams couldn’t accept himself. I saw a similar split in myself when I stepped into my gifts fifteen years ago. I was able to facilitate great healing in sessions for others, but when I left the healing room the insecure little girl rose up to be loved. Feeling “her” fear and insecurity with compassion, I realized more gifts and let myself be loved in the process. Our needs and feelings are the same, independent of what we achieve, express, or learn. Just because you are in a role of teacher, mother, actor, or doctor doesn’t mean your human self has now disappeared. Everyone’s feelings and needs are the same. When you express love and your unique self, it will bring up the next layer of humanity to be witnessed and loved. Compassionate awareness of your humanity allows your soul’s expression a greater foundation in which to rest. Spiritually, when you accept your humanity,you realize the next layer of your divinity. Your vulnerabilities are the fertilizer to realizing a greater you. What you perceive as weakness is actually a strength. We all crave interdependence, connection, or oneness. When guided by narcissism and selfishness, we search for love and identity outside of ourselves. When we honor our humanity (vulnerabilities, feelings, and thoughts) we organically feel a greater connection to our full Self (divinity). When we feel this inward permission and love, we then feel safe to be loved by a group, by Life, and God. It is “lonely at the top” only when we forget our own humanity. In humility,peace and greatness are found. When you accept yourself as an equal and do not place yourself beneath or above anyone else, you stop denying your feelings and trying to painfully rescue another from themselves. When you know yourself as magnificent and flawed, you touch the cosmos. You stop giving your authority to be happy over to a loved one or boss. When you feel discomfort around someone, it is not

because of them. No one has the power to make you feel any certain way. When you don’t give your feelings or expression permission, your ability to simply be yourself is suffocated. Anything you use to shield yourself will eventually lock you in a house of your own suffering. Peace and authenticity are inseparable. Inner peace is a practice of being in the world without hiding your feelings, or trying to impress. When you allow the connection to your fragile and powerful self to be felt, you have happiness. Rumi - The Guest House This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond. When we are fearful of letting ourselves be loved (or in other words, allowing ourselves to feel as one) we dominate what we need. Every human must eat food. Yet our agricultural processes rape the soil of its micro nutrients, pollute the water with pesticides, and genetically modify vegetables that our bodies have trouble metabolizing. How has it become socially sane to spend hours sculpting, cutting, and fertilizing a yard until it is perfect? This same time could be used for growing food or studying a new language. We only feel safe in nature when we can control her wild ways. We dominate nature and we dominate the ones we love.

38 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


Culturally we are taught it is weak to need. “Power” is doing it all on your own, by yourself...and up a hill. How can we get our needs met and let ourselves be truly loved with these beliefs? Fearful of independent choices the “dominator” will impose his/ her will until the “loved one” submits. For every person that wants to take someone’s power there are people standing in line to have their power taken. As children, we are not allowed our feelings and truths. We are told what to believe, feel, and follow if we are to gain the approval of our parents or other authorities. We learn that to belong we must sacrifice ourselves on some level. Yet a fundamental human need is to belong and receive love! We “cleverly” join a group yet demand to be the best! This perfection keeps us slightly separate and “safe” from losing ourselves, yet never fully feeling free to BE ourselves. We let ourselves enter into relationship yet hide our deepest feelings; keeping that part of ourselves “safe” from being hurt. The problem is whatever we keep secret eventually becomes shame and “proof” of our unworthiness. In denying ourselves, we cage our Soul’s authentic expression in strategies of false security. Hierarchical models of power and separation permeate our religions, psychologies and personal lives. When we admit with vulnerability that we are intimately weaved into the fabric of life we feel sweetly loved. Isn’t it a paradox that in consciously allowing our vulnerability, we open ourselves to be loved and give our Soul the footing to fly high?

THE BUZZARD: If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top. THE BAT: The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place.

John Van Auken’s Explains Edgar Cayce’s View of the Mind From his deep attunement to the Mind of God, that Universal Consciousness, Edgar Cayce stated that mind is the light, the builder, and the bridge to liberation and enlightenment. Here is his perspective on the mind: “The Spirit moved ... and there was Light -- Mind. The Light became the light of men.” “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. How? The Mind of God moved, and matter, form, came into being. Mind, then, in God the Father, is the builder. How much more, then, would or should Mind be the builder in the experience of those that have put on Christ or God, in Him, in His coming into the earth?” “Each entity finds itself in a three-dimensional phase of existence or experience:

If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash. THE BUMBLEBEE: A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself. In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up! That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem... just look up! Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!

the world without, the world within, and the mind that may span or bridge the two.” Mind is the light, the builder, and the bridge between spirit and body. He explained that life, all life, begins in the spirit, which is the creative force that brings all into existence. Then mind takes this life essence, and builds with it. Finally, the physical is the result: “Mind the builder, the spirit the creator, the material [is] that created, the result. Great truth! Keep it before you.” It certainly is a powerful concept to keep before us. All outer “things” have their origin in the unseen spiritual forces, then find expression in the mind, and ultimately appear out here in the physical. So often we physical beings think that the outer, physical forces are the more powerful. But Cayce frequently encouraged us to accept that “the unseen forces are greater than the seen.” If we want to change something, it must begin in the spirit and the mind.

The Gift of Playfulness Do you ever look back on the days of youth and innocence? There is a freedom comes with that age, a freedom to be you. There is no need to be more or different. You could follow the impulse of your heart’s desire, aligned with the present moment and inspired by your soul. This is playfulness. Being playful is alignment with source energy, a dance of freedom that follows the flow of life and allows you to be you. You find yourself so wrapped up in the present moment that happiness bubbles from the inside out; everything you touch is easy and fun. Because your youth is many years passed, you may feel you can never return to being playful. But that is not so. The child is still there, inside you, silently watching, waiting quietly for your return.

years ago) has any worries or regrets? No, for she is fully engaged in the moment. Inspiration –When we are in the moment, neither thoughts nor ego cloud our mind. This creates an opening for us to channel information from beyond the mind. Inspiration easily flows into you adding to your problem solving abilities and creative energies. Compassion – When we play, we connect to others at a core level of our humanity. From this place it is easier to embrace others without judgment. This heart connection heals; compassion comes forth, and overcomes the separation we all feel as suffering is eased. Bliss – Because connection through compassion occurs at the soul level, our sense of Self enlarges, radiates outward and by its very nature enhances our happiness. Happiness here is not event dependent, it bubbles up from the inner Self, is always there no matter what is happening on the outside and is known as living in a state of bliss.

But to do so you will have to put aside the norms of society. Fearlessness – The responsibilities of a head of household are Society teaches us to be serious. Grow up, go to school, get enormous. We feel trapped in things we must do, in the beliefs a good paying job, work hard. Then you will successful and we hold and in the path we must follow happy. We are guided to want to desire and if we don’t we fear all can be lost. things, money and power and to be “We don't stop playing beThis fear pervades our lives and is the ambitious. Being caught in this cycle of cause we grow old; we grow antagonist to playfulness. Playfulness is materialism is a prison that discourages old because we stop playa vote for joy and pushes out fear.

This is not healthy; it is dis-ease. Peace – Coming from the knowing that all is happening as it There is no ease in this path. It is the way of suffering. should, peace washes over you as an inner stillness arises that Playfulness can be said to be the opposite of suffering. When you are playful you are in communion with your Soul. And when that is so, there is no suffering only joy.

When you access the child within and let out your playful side, this is what happens as your Soul playfully comes alive. Laughter - Laughter is lightheartedness, a feeling there is something else beyond. It is a dance of ecstasy. Because laughter is contagious it is expansive, healing and healthy. If you can laugh wholeheartedly at all of life, your life experience will be filled with bliss. Laughter that comes from deep within is a sign there is joy in your heart. Present Moment Awareness – Watch a child play and you will see no ego. The ego is relegated to the sidelines because the child is living fully in the moment. The ego gains its power by judging the past or fearing the future. A playful child cannot relate to either because they live in the now. Do you think the young girl in the picture (our now married daughter some 20 October 2014

forms a powerful foundation for you to rely on each and every moment.

These gifts can be yours when you allow playfulness to come alive again. The following affirmations will help restore a sense of playfulness in your life. I dance to the divine play of life. I am playful, innocent and free. I easily experience laughter and joy. I live life inspired from the Source within. Try them as you go about your day, when you meditate or mediate with us during our FREE guided meditation on BodyMindSpiriRADIO.com, Wed Oct 8 at 9PM EDT. Dave Krajovic MBA, CPA, CMT

Spiritual Horoscopes Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) – Happy birthday Libra! This month’s eclipse spiritually guides you with relationships and self-image. Meditate and see yourself through 4th dimensional eyes. View yourself from your soul’s perceptive. See beautiful divine light shining in every cell of your body. This improves body image and how valuable you feel to others. Reject 3rd dimensional values! Also watch for impulse spending, since Mercury is retrograde and you’ll likely regret it later! Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) – This month’s eclipse stimulates intuition. Meditate as usual, and also be open to guidance at all times of day. Record dreams, too! Ask for insights about health habits affecting moods. You likely have a food or environmental allergy. Release the food/substance and see how your emotional energy lifts, as well as your physical energy! You can also start a new relationship if single. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) – The eclipse wants to create an ideal relationship for you! Meditate on what would make you the ideal partner. Next work on adopting those habits and mindsets. Make a list of your “perfect partner”, then ponder each point to see how truly valuable it is, and release less significant qualities. Then meditate on forgiving yourself and all romantic partners (past and present) for flaws. You can manifest wonderful harmony! Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) – October’s eclipse give insights into how you bring childhood issues into career. Meditate on how you’ve blocked success by unconsciously projecting limiting thoughts on supervisors, colleagues and yourself. Most people do this, but right now you can be free of that

pattern! Observe your thoughts and behaviors, and change them to become tremendously empowered! Also make efforts to connect with dear friends you haven’t see in awhile. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) – The eclipse is making you put your money where your mouth is spiritually. You believe in the power of meditation, but how often are you actually meditating? You love humanity, but how is your patience and compassion level with people you encounter? That’s the kind of stuff you’ll feel tested about. Walking your talk in this way opens your heart chakra and helps you feel bonded to others (you often feel isolated). Also, don’t make major job decisions in October, since Mercury is retrograde. Wait until next month. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) – Please meditate on forgiving past betrayals, heartbreaks and other trust issues. This month’s eclipse makes you put on “funny glasses” so you see the present as the past. Cleanse your heart of these ghosts so you have less to react to. You’re entering a new era of healthy bonding and trust! Also meditate on releasing old ideas of God judging you about sexuality. The Universe supports all aspects of pleasure! Aries (March 21 – April 19) – This eclipse is healing relationships for you. Meditate about being patient with others. When vulnerable, you can get irritated and sharp. Believe the Universe is opening your heart and that it’s safe to bond and trust! Talk with your partner about their fears of getting closer as well as your own. If single, you can meet someone who’ll challenge you to open up in a deeper way than ever before!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) – If you have communication problems, especially with your spouse or partner, please look at your health habits. October’s eclipse gives insights about addictive food behaviors. You can also realize foods that trigger allergies. When you’re body is stressed, your mind and emotions will be too. Also, more meditation time comforts you so you don’t go to “bad” foods for support! Gemini (May 21 – June 20) – The eclipse helps develop relationships. To heal your soul more deeply, meditate on childhood memories about first loves. Ponder how you felt as you moved into puberty when your body developed. What messages did you get about dating and sexuality? Write these things down, and then rip the list up. Whether memories are good or bad, release them as a limitation, since they are an old part of you. You’ll move into a new maturity in romance and sexuality. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) – This month’s eclipse wants to free you from dysfunctional family patterns of emotion. They can be from your birth family, or your current family as an adult. It’s easy for you to get into a rut, and stay in them because you’re comfortable. Meditate to dare to change the status quo when it comes to how you respond to others, and how they respond to you. Even if loved ones resist, stay strong with your healthy ways of relating! By mid-November, new positive “ruts” are formed and life is much smoother! Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) – Meditation will be amazing this month! The eclipse creates new neuropathways in your brain. These are avenues paved for subtle levels of thinking. Meditation activates brain waves and strengthens new paths of thought! Show the Universe you’re serious about spiritual growth by activating the gifts you’ve been given!

42 Body Mind Spirit Guide | October 2014


Your intuition strengthens, helping you make choices that make life easier. You’ll also have insights into others that give you compassion.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) – October’s eclipse helps with money management. Meditation and quiet reflection reveal unhealthy patterns of spending – and also reveal negative beliefs about money. Read books about spirituality and prosperity. Your mind will open to receive the abundance around you! Also, forgive other people for their money fears. They often mask greater fears of intimacy and rejection. Aluna Michaels Aluna Michaels is a second-generation astrologer and Soul Evolutionist practitioner.

Low Socioeconomic Status in Childhood: Predicts Disease and Early Death Many chronic diseases—especially those resulting in early death—develop over a period of time that can extends for decades. Research shows there is a high correlation between a variety of early-life experiences, and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), angina, stroke, and atherosclerosis and other major illnesses. What these illnesses have in common is that they tend to result in early death. One of the most significant factors leading to early death is Low Socioeconomic Status— regardless of the individual’s SES at the onset of the disease or death. Although this sounds ominous, there appears to be significant evidence in recent years that these risk factors can be reversed—not just by raising SES, but also by rigorous attention to self-care. Radical changes in diet, life-style, and weight-management, are believed to result in epigenetic changes in gene expression that lead to positive life-outcomes. The latest research indicates that those individuals who eat well, manage their weight to the appropriate level—not too thin, and not too fat-and certainly not obese—and exercise &

The risk of early death of those with low SES in childhood can be further reversed by avoiding cigarette smoking, and minimizing their use of prescription medications whenever possible, as well as avoiding all mind-altering chemicals. However, research shows that one glass of wine, or one alcoholic beverage a day, actually is likely extend life-expectancy over those who abstain from alcohol altogether. The jury is still out on marijuana, as it has only recently become legalized in some states, so research on its efficacy and as a stress reducer, or life enhancer, has not been possible— since previously the dosage could not be easily quantified or regulated. However, there is some indication that the regular use of marijuana can cause permanent changes in the neural pathways of the brain. To date, research has not established the effects of long-term marijuana usage that result in changes in brain chemistry, or its effects on the individual. It is, however, unfortunate to see that in most university freshman classes on drugs and alcohol, the usual message is that marijuana has NO side-effects whatsoever! This is up to the individual to decide whether to believe this or not.

regularly—at least 3 or 5 times a week, increase the probability of positive outcomes and a longer life. Along with good sleep habits, the above changes in life-style contribute to reversing the likelihood of CHD and other potentially fatal diseases—all those they are at risk of developing, based on early life experiences—in particular low SES.

The Psychic Brain The brain science of the psychic/medium experience is both fascinating and important. It generally is associated with a decrease in frontal lobe function (disinhibition) and increases or decreases in right temporal lobe function (similar to seizure phenomena). Many people who believe they are psychic try to hide it, because they are afraid they’ll be labeled as crazy, evil, or satanic. There are even some religious taboos against it. Yet, the Apostle Paul and other prophets had psychic experiences. Such experiences are more common after brain injuries, especially to the right brain hemisphere. Some people report feeling anxious if they try to suppress the psychic experience. A study by Dr. Amen, showed Brain SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) scans on 10 mediums (people who communicate with the dead), showed lower activity in the temporal lobes and frontal lobes when doing psychography (writing what the dead were saying). One speculation from the paper was that as overall frontal lobe function decreased, mediums/psychics were less inhibited in their abilities.

always meditate first to quiet my brain to achieve reaching a deeper level of the mind. When doing a reading, I function on the Theta level of the brain which is the deepest level you can go into before falling into a hypnotic Delta level of the brain. Edward Casey was know as the, Sleeping Prophet; when he quieted his brain to do a reading he fell into a deep Delta level. At this level, the brain is in an unconscious state. He used an assistant to take notes of all that he said while in this state. His assistant only needed to tell him the name and address of the person that wished to have a reading. Edward never remembered his readings, but because he had all of his readings recorded, we know that he was an incredibly accurate psychic.

Do you have psychic/medium potential? If you answer ‘yes’ to three or more of these questions your brain is most likely wired to be a psychic/ medium and suggests that you look into a psychic development class and fine tune your natural skills.

1. Do you have a history of anxiety? 2. Have you had an unusual spiritual experience? 3. Have you seen or heard a spirit (even if you only saw it in your dream state)? 4. Have you had a gut feeling or sensed a future event, that came true? 5. Have you ever experienced a brain trauma or head injury?

Below is a brain scan. On the left, the scan shows an active brain in the Beta level of the mind; on the right it shows the brain quieting down into the Theta level, where the subject was actually doing a psychic reading. During the channeling session, you can see a marked de-activation of brain activity. This makes sense if you agree with the theory that psychics have to turn off their own thoughts if they are going to tune into the frequencies of the universe. In another interesting study by Dr. Amen, psychic-sensitive people were more likely to be single or divorced, and people who had at some time consulted a psychiatrist. They may have experienced more head injuries and serious illnesses than the controls. Sixty-six percent showed evidence of right hemisphere and right temporal lobe dysfunction. Mystical experiences showed a trend toward being related to non-dominant hemisphere (usually right) dysfunction. Mystical or paranormal experiences are associated with transient electrical activity within the temporal lobes of the human brain. Many people whom I talk with will say right up front, “I don’t believe in psychics” yet they will admit to having had some sort of psychic experience themselves. Now we have through science, more proof that we use more of our brain than realized, and that we can connect to the universe.
