On The Cover “Celtic Crescents” by Kristen Fox “When I was a little kid, I used to draw all over everything. I’d doodle on the newspaper margins, fill coloring books and drawing pads, even drew on the wall once, much to my mother’s consternation! Eventually these creative proclivities were directed towards my growing interests in calligraphy, drawing, photography, and painting. And then I discovered the wonderful world of Celtic Art with all of its intricate knotwork and spiral designs and symbolism. Today my artwork tends to blend these classic artistic elements and approaches into unique, contemporary, and colorful designs that move a step beyond what has gone before. Celtic artists have used intricate spiral symbology for millenia, and I wanted to create a design that reflected this historical element in a new setting - spinning spirals within circles in rainbow colors, representing the infinite possibilities of worlds within worlds within worlds.” Artist’s Website: http://www.artoffoxvox.com/

How to Come to Peace with any Situation By Shaeri Richards Life happens. Sometimes we might enjoy the way life is unfolding, other times it might feel challenging, painful and overwhelming. The truth is that we cannot control what is happening in the world around us, yet we do have the power to find peace with life in our inner world. Paradoxically, when we come to peace inside, our energy shifts and we may find we are attracting different types of situations to our outer world. But even if nothing changes on the outer, peace on the inner will make life more pleasant and fulfilling.

properly tuned piano is designed to generate clear pure sounds, we are designed to generate the pure, clear energy of the Divine. We are built that way. Yet life’s challenges can cause us to get out of warped and out of tune. Tuning ourselves to the frequency of peace can help bring us back in balance. Here are some practices you can use to come to peace around any situation.

1. Accept what’s happening. Breathe into your feelings about the situation and allow them to be as they are. Often we may feel frustration, bitterness, anger or rage about a situation. Judging these In a world where change is the only feelings or expressing them to the constant, coming to peace requires other tends to cause more challenges. Repressing them will a certain ability to go with the create problems as well. Find a way flow, to allow life to be as it is. It to allow them to move through you. requires a certain surrender to the Feel them and acknowledge them notion that try as we like, we don’t for yourself, then let them go. From always get to have things how we want them and when we want them, this state of acceptance, your energy will relax and the next step will which is usually “right now, thank become clearer. you very much.” So what is peace? Peace is a spiritual frequency that we can tune in to at any moment. It’s like a color or a sound. The color “red” or the note “G” are always vibrating on their individual frequencies whether we are currently experiencing them in our outer world or not. If we want to manifest them on the material plane, we can use a medium or an instrument to bring them forth, like paint or a piano. When it comes to spiritual frequencies like peace, we become their instrument of expression on earth.

As human beings we have the capacity to sound the notes of the spiritual worlds, notes like peace, love, and compassion. Much like a 6 • www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com FALL/WINTER2012

2. Do what you can. If action is possible take it, yet do your best to stay relaxed about the outcome. Let go of the “need” for success; yet remain open to the “possibility” of it. If action isn’t possible, don’t dwell on the situation. Remain vigilant with your thoughts, if you find yourself running the situation over and over in your mind, stop, breathe into your heart and move into acceptance with the feelings you find there. Sometimes action happens through non-action. It’s like being caught in an ocean current. The best way to come to the surface is to stop fighting and let the current carry you to the top.

3. Forgive yourself if you know what to do, but can’t make yourself do it. Sometimes we are incapable of taking the action that will help us. Beating yourself up for this will only make matters worse. If you know what to do but don’t have the capacity to do it, practice step one. Call in your heart. Find compassion for yourself. Give yourself a hug. With time, this practice of self-forgiveness and self-love may open the door to the energy needed for change. 4. Look for any lessons you are meant to learn. Often life’s most difficult situations can be used as teachers on the road to compassion, love and peace. 5. Remain open to opportunity and change. By practicing relaxation and acceptance, you become more present to the moment, and the moment births both peace and possibilities.

7 Ways We Plan To Bring You More Amazing Events ~ by Chandler Armstrong 1. New improved website with social interaction, affiliate program and more. 2. New “Virtual and Live” presentations in the main lecture theater. 3. New “One Night Only” Events. 4. More affordable exhibiting options. 5. More pocial programs including Saturday Event “AWAKE” Party. 6. Newsletter, Events and Articles. 7. New “licensed” expos allow you to bring the Body Soul & Spirit Expo to your community. These are truly exciting times, where we are all being called upon to explore new ways and possibilities. While many choose to focus on chaos and challenges, we hope you will join us in seeking the emergence of new potentials for our world. We heart-fully invite all who share our vision to join us in the co-creation of something wonderful. A Unique Perspective Over the past decade and a half we have produced over 180 expos and special events for our community in several cities across Canada. In doing so, we’ve had the privilege of working with an incredible group of people whose passion is to provide solutions for creating a better world through sharing their wisdom, products or services. We’ve been honored to be able to talk to the many people who are looking for new ways of living. We listen to their many stories, feedback and insights on a daily basis. Both those who provide and those who come to explore the options offered in our community are equally a part of the same quest on the forefront of creating new ways of living and better choices for our world. We’ve heard from many exhibitors that they are looking for more economical prices for exhibiting at our events. We have solutions that will allow us to continue to provide the best possible promotion for our events (TV, Radio Bill Boards, Major Papers, Poster Distribution, Internet Marketing and more). Likewise, attendees would like to see more value, including more bestselling authors, teachers and experts that continue to inspire them. 8 • www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com FALL/WINTER2012

Improvement #1: New and Improved Website

Here are just some of the new features we have planned:

• A completely new look and feel for our entire website. • Better tools to allow members to post directory listings, submit events, articles and classes. • A new News & Articles Section with featured columnists, with the best contributions used in the magazine. • New social media functionality on the community pages and a mini feed on We've been talking about our new website for just over 2 years now. It may main page. • Improved Exhibitor Listings. seem that our first attempt was “bad • Member commenting and interaction timing”, as it was just before a sharp to all news feed posts. turn in the economy that seemingly • A state of the art affiliate system. temporarily derailed the project. In retrospect, this extra two years was exactly what we needed as it caused us We see our new website as the “backbone” of the new direction for our events, magazine and professional network. We have put our 16 years of experience, several years of research, and hundreds of hours of consultation to create a new concept intended to create a community and culture of mutual support. New technologies have emerged that provide us with the opportunity to create the tools in the re-development of a more effective website that will allow us to effectively collaborate and work with all who are part of the Body Soul & Sprit Expo, Magazine and Online Community.

Improvement #2: New “Virtual and Live” Presentations Imagine seeing many of the people you've been asking for at our event ... Dr. Miguel Ruiz “The Four to rethink what was really needed in Agreements”, Byron Katie “The Work”, our community and how we could be James Van Praagh, Gregg Braden, of service in filling this need. Doreen Virtue, James Twyman, Deborah King “Be Your Own We work with an extraordinary group Shaman”, Ram Dass “Be Here Now”, Dr. of people that are passionate about Joe Dispenza and Bob Proctor “The providing better products, services and Secret”, Caroline Myss, “Subtle knowledge to people looking for new Anatomy” ... and many other best ways of being and living.

Well The new system, planned to launch in that’s exactly what we've set out to do 2013, also includes live Internet with our new website. streaming to allow even more people to


attend virtually, as well as the ability to produce high quality video and audio recording for all our speakers and presenters, as well as downloading these presentations after the event. Improvement #3: New “ONE NIGHT ONLY” Events We’ve now joined with a major promotional partner to launch Body Soul & Spirit One Night Only events. These events will not be expos, but much more intimate evening events, although we will offer a small number of sponsor tables in the lobby of the event. Improvement #4: More “affordable” Exhibiting options

booths on all corner booth spaces that will allow your organization (if approved) to acquire exhibit space at our expos at half the price of a regular booth. As all these booths are on a corner, each organization is allowed a full table on separate aisles as well as their own listings and other benefits. AUTHORS COLLECTIVE BOOTH: Over the years we have had 100’s of authors at our events that have told us they would like a more affordable option. In answer to this, we’ve created a cooperative authors booth in all our expos. We allow each author half of a standard table to exhibit their book or books, as well as individual listings online and in the show guide providing the same promotional exposure all for as little as one quarter of the price of a regular booth (four authors per booth).

Over the past fifteen years we’ve seen the costs of producing and promoting our events skyrocket to three and four times what they were just a decade ago. PRACTITIONER BOOTH: If you are While most other events have passed these costs on to their exhibitors, we’ve part of a organization or you just want only raised our prices by 28% since our to organize a exhibit space with others who practice the same healing art, you first events. As a result we have had to be incredibly creative in the production may now get into a booth with other practitioners for as little as $200 per of our events, explore co-branding, practitioner (four practitioners per media sponsorship, and trim some of booth). the costs. As a result exhibit fees no longer cover our costs and we have had Improvement #5: More Social to be incredibly creative in the Programs including Saturday Event production of our events, and explore “AWAKE” the Ultimate New co-branding, media sponsorship, as Consciousness Party well as trim some of the costs. Our solution is to provide more incentives that will encourage more community involvement that will benefit those who participate as well as the event as a whole. We believe that these new options will allow many who may not have been able to add our event to their promotional budget to join the shows, and result in a more diverse array of exhibits for those who attend our events.

We believe that life is meant to be fun, and our event should be fun as well. That why we are planning more social events for our future events. Our first is “AWAKE” the official Saturday Night Party at all our events.

In this event, at 7pm, the lecture theater transforms into a stage, the curtains come down, the buffet and bar is set up, various healthy restaurants, cafes and caterers put out snacks and hors d’oeuvres in a buffet with waiters on We are introducing opportunities for call to serve you.

More details and tickets will be posted soon. Ticket sales NON-PROFIT BOOTH: If you’re part of a non-profit group, we now offer half will be priced to cover the cost, all

proceeds above cost will go to charity. As this event is both a social and charitable event, we are looking for a volunteer coordinator, so if you love to organize parties be sure to send us a letter letting us know your interest and experience. We also have several other special social events planned, including an exhibitor welcome brunch at the official hotel the Friday morning of the show, and a wrap up dinner at the close of the show. Most of these events are planned for out 2013 events, so be sure to sign up to our newsletter online and we will keep you posted. Improvement #6: Monthly Newsletter: News, Events, and Articles Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was one monthly email that would keep you updated on all the events in our community? Share the latest news, events and the hottest and latest new businesses, spas, authors, movies? Timely articles, discussions, and insights on topic you want to learn more about? This was exactly what we set out to create years ago when we first created News for Body Soul & Spirit which was a compilation of content from many of the wonderful people that have exhibited and presented at the Body Soul & Spirit Expos. For years, we formatted, edited and emailed the newsletter to our email list compiled from individuals who subscribed online, and at the front doors of our events. As part our complete renovation of the Body Soul & Spirit Website, the dynamic and interactive electronic publication is designed to bring our community together. Submit or read news and information from members, events, articles and news from our community. We’ve added a new online editor to the Body Soul & Spirit staff, who will be responsible for assuring that each issue is carefully assembled with the information our members are looking for and delivered to email at the first of every month. As part of our new website improvements we will be launching a much more clean, readable and userfriendly “member back web” which will allow all our advertisers, exhibitors and members to post their articles, events and news.

In some cases, individuals have copied without permission the contracts, promotional copy, registration forms and other material that has been carefully created by our organization and is the result of numerous consultations with lawyers, government officials and industry consultants. We feel that in many cases this has been done out of ignorance and not as a deliberate act to unlawfully use our intellectual property. We have sought legal advice, and while in most causes a law suit seeking monetary compensation would be the recommended direction, we’ve sought a more conscious solution, which we believe will bring our community together rather than create more disharmonies.

Will I “Make it” through The Shift? ~ Karen M. Black BSc, MBA I’ve put my heart, my soul into my own transformation. I backed it up with action. In this critical year in human evolution, I’m beginning to feel that I’ve forgotten everything I learned just before the ‘big exam’. To heck with the Mayans: What about my heart?

Will I “Make it” through The Shift? That’s what I’ve been wondering… Like you perhaps, I entered 2012 with great excitement and anticipation. Reason’s this. For over 10 years, I’ve immersed myself in intensive personal and spiritual growth work. Spiritual retreats, experiential learning, karmic astrology, energy work of many kinds, homeopathy, past life healing and more. I published my novel Moondance, whose theme explores awakening (kicking and screaming) in a modern world. I also created The Soulmate Site to explore the mysteries of relationship, and heal my own heart. Heck. I figured I was as ready for ascension as I was ever gonna be. Yet – 2012 hasn’t quite turned out the way I planned. It’s 2012: Egad – have I regressed? Here’s how I experienced the first six months of 2012: • After spending thousands of dollars on alternative health and energy work over the past five years, some days, I felt more sluggish than ever • A major friendship ended unexpectedly, releasing waves of grief • Business areas that I committed my heart and many dollars to are no longer on my radar (poof!) • Family pressures have intensified • On the other hand, new ideas came in that I never would have imagined (like writing on this topic). 12 • www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com FALL/WINTER2012

I’ve talked with my spirit-minded friends about this. I’ve also received many emails from readers. Old issues are coming to the surface now. Stuff that folks (including me) thought they were done with – dammit.

‘stuckness’ I was feeling has eased up (yay finally!). My own purpose has become clearer. I want to put my corporate ‘plain language’ writing skills to work, to help facilitate the understanding of ascension (and other complex esoteric subjects) to more people. For me as a writer, 2012 has created a new space for creativity, service and inspiration. Timeline for The Shift goes beyond 2012 How are you feeling as we wind up 2012? Would you appreciate a Heart Boost?

The academic research around 2012 doesn’t address our purpose, our lives day to day. So when faced with such Here’s a tidbit I discovered during my unexpected turbulence, I say to heck ‘in the weeds’ research. While The Shift with the Mayans, the Quantum Field (on a vibrational level) is understood and the God Particle. These things to be instant, marking the end of a (while they are fascinating) do not ease 25,000 year cycle, no one – earthbound my heart! or otherwise – knows the exact date it will take place in earth terms. The date I want to know: range is between 2011 and 2015. 1. How am I doing (am I regressing)? 2. Will I “Make it” through The Shift? 3. What exactly does The Shift mean (in plain language please), and 4. Where should I grow next? The unfolding of my 2012 obsession For almost two decades, I was a plain language writer and consultant for technical industries. I still do the odd tech writing gig. So naturally, when I became curious about the personal side of 2012 and ascension, I waded passionately into the weeds with my questions. In the spring of 2012 between other projects, I ramped up my research. As I do for my corporate clients wanting a plain language style for their complex subjects, I began distilling the ‘gems’ from the weeds. The results were surprising and validating, too. Surrendering fully to The Shift I’m in a completely different place today, than I was at the beginning of 2012. These last months are feeling like surrender to me. Gratefully, the

What Makes a Great Psychic Reading? By Katrina Psychic-Medium Excellent question! What does constitute as a great reading? A ‘Psychic’ is someone sensitive to things beyond the natural range of perception. A ‘Reading’ is a snap shot in time of the energy in this moment; which can include the past, present and future. This reading can come in many different forms, from an intuitive reader receiving messages or a reader using tools such as tea leaves, rune stones, tarot cards, or crystal balls. With this snap shot of information, along with your free will, gives you the ability to adjust your perception of the past, learn from the present and change your future. From my experience as an intuitive, I receive messages using many different ‘Clair’ senses. The way a spirit comes in, is the way that the person having the reading will understand. One time during a session, I smelled chocolate chip cookies, hot and fresh, just out of the oven. The funny thing was that my oven was not turned on and I had not baked any cookies in years. This was how a loving Grandmother presented herself to me for her granddaughter. The loved one came in this way because this was the way that her granddaughter was greeted when she visited her grandmother’s home. Another time, there was a boyfriend, who crossed over, passed a cuddly white bunny to his grieving girlfriend. It was an odd gift to give a loved one until you learned that it was their first pet picked out together. I am happy to use any of my ‘Clair’ senses to help you to ‘Find Clarity, Peace of Mind or Insight into Your Life’ These are the ‘Clairs’ that I have had the honour to use: hear (clairaudient), see (clairvoyant), feel-sense (clairsentient), taste (clairgustant), smell (clairalient), messages from feelings / pain (clairempathy), touch (clairtangent) There are three things needed for a reading.... a guide, angel or loved one to give a message, a psychic or medium to transmit the message and a person to receive it. How do you choose a psychic or medium that is a good fit for you? It just comes down to you trusting yourself and going where you feel comfortable, drawn to and the energies fit. Every psychic is different, and how they deliver the messages are different. So it is important that you feel comfortable with the reader that you have picked. Some readers will specialize in different areas. It is up to you to take what fits from the reading and leave the rest. It may not all make sense in that moment; however down the road… all the pieces come together. You are in charge of your own life - don't live your life by your reading… use it as a snap shot in time for you to create your own future. A Great Reader Will NOT... ask any personal questions before the reading; will not try to figure out the meanings behind the symbols; will not be upset if the client terminates the reading; will not tell the client what to do; will not tell you that you need a reading; will not try to convince the clients of anything; and will not try to change any one’s belief system. A Great Reader WILL... ask confirmation questions during the session; will allow the client to ask clarification questions; will stop the reading if they do not feel a connection to the client or spirit; will give messages that they get even when they do not make sense to them; will shorten the length of the reading if they have given all that there is to give; will give options; and will give readings that are uplifting and inspiring. There are enough readers for all everyone to get what they are looking for. It's NOT a competition ... It is all about getting the right fit in that moment and that is up to YOU.

Mystic Wanderer Chichén Itzá The sun-baked stones of Chichén Itzá silently mark the passage of time, oblivious to the quiet footsteps and incongruously hushed comments of the loudly dressed tourists who violate the sacred temples with passable reverence. The tourists stand, awestruck, staring up at the few brave souls who dare to climb the steep angles of El Castillo, “The Castle”, the pyramid centerpiece of this ancient Mayan city. The quiet voices of tour guides speak in a halfdozen languages, telling the compelling story of a people largely known for their brilliant architectural skills, astronomical knowledge, and use of human sacrifice. The clicking of cameras competes with the random claps and shouts from tourists and guides who experiment with Chichén Itzá’s strange acoustics. For all the noise and people, Chichén Itzá remains strangely quiet and still and holy. Chichén Itzá is surrounded by jungle on all sides, and there are few of the comforting Caribbean Ocean breezes that bless nearby Cancun. The air hangs hot and muggy, stirred only rarely by the barest breeze. El Castillo exudes an overwhelming sense of sacredness. The place is literally drowning in ancient psychic energy. At this point, however, the ancient energy is unfocused, dormant, lying in wait like the coils of the feathered serpents that decorate so many corners and entranceways. The footsteps of so many tourists have drummed out a lot of the ancient energy of the original inhabitants. The modern emotions of mystery, awe and wonder now permeates the stones, making it hard to sense much from the original inhabitants. Still, their powerful intent can still be sensed on the deepest levels. I sensed at least three major cultural periods, a fact confirmed by our guide, but unlike some other historical sites 16 • www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com FALL/WINTER2012

I have visited, there were few spiritual voices strong enough to break through the oppressive psychic cloud. One voice, the spirit of a young priestess and willing sacrifice, managed to bring through a number of stunning images into my mind. What struck me was her willingness, eagerness to die on behalf of her people, her certainty that the mission had been in fact accomplished, and her adamancy that it was a sacred and even profoundly blissful experience. I could not bring myself to be sad for her, so passionate, proud and strong was her mind. El Castillo de Kukulkán The main temple pyramid is perhaps best known for the miracle of the vernal equinox. “El Castillo de Kukulkán” (“The Castle of Kukulkán”, the feathered serpent) was designed so precisely that every year at the equinoxes, the steps of the pyramid cast a snake-like shadow on the steep sides of the staircases. Thousands of people cd ongregate at the site twice each year to witness the spectacle, but the park simulates the event with nightly light shows. The thought of the huge courtyard, packed with so many people of such diverse spiritual beliefs seems

rather ironic in the face of the serious and violent mysteries of Mayan beliefs. While the astronomical precision of El Castillo is its most famous attribute, the mysterious builders of the ancient temples were gifted masters of acoustic manipulation as well. If you stand at the base of the pyramid and clap, you will hear a strange “pinging” sound, something like a cross between a chirp


and the sound of a guitar string being plucked. This sound resembles the call of the quetzal, or messenger of the gods, an exotic local bird whose spectacular feathers were used in the headdresses of Mayan kings. There are similar acoustic effects around the site, including in the ball court where the same clapping sound will echo exactly seven times (a number sacred to the Maya, and to many modern peoples). A whisper at one end of the 545-foot court can be clearly heard at the other side.

of skeletons. Most of the treasure and artifacts that have been found were removed by archeologist Edward Thompson, who donated them to the Peabody Museum at Harvard.

The Cenoté

My feeling was that not all of the victims of the cenoté were killed before they were tossed into the well, nor were they all necessarily sacrifices. I did not get a heavy feeling in my chest that I would associate with that kind of death. Rather, I got a strong impression of drowning or being smothered. I know this runs counter to the traditional beliefs of the way these people met their deaths, but it is possible that there were different methods of sacrifice, depending on the particular god or effect being sought. I also had an impression that a good number of the children found in the well were actually victims of accidental falls. This area does have a heavy, dark psychic “stain” upon it, and if you are sensitive, you may want to avoid it.

Cenotés (si-'nO-tE) are natural wells or sinkholes, formed by weak pockets of limestone in the crust of the earth. There are a number of public cenotés in the Yucatan region where modern swimmers and snorkelers can take a cool break from the heat. I chose not to visit the cenoté at Chichén Itzá, however. The muggy psychic energy I sensed seemed centered on this area. It was not until much later that I learned Chichén Itzá means “mouth of the well” or “Opening of the Wells of the Itza”. I knew in advance that it would likely be a place of heavy energy. The heat had sapped my strength to face such a place. This well was the final resting-place for many of the victims of the human sacrifice cult of the ancient inhabitants of Chichén Itzá. It is believed that much of the treasure they took with them remains at the bottom of the cenoté, though excavations in the early 1900’s unearthed hundreds

You can drive to Chichén Itzá or arrange for a bus tour at your hotel. The ruins are about 2.5 hours West of Cancun. Wear light clothing, bring a strong sunscreen, hats, parasols if you have them, and lots of bottled water. During July and August local temperatures average 35 degrees Celsius, and you may find there is less tourist traffic in mid-summer (most Americans travel domestically with their families at this time). If you take a tour, you will be provided with a parasol. You will be standing in the sun or in light shade for about two hours, and will then have a short period of

El Caracol (The shell) Named for a unique spiraling staircase inside the observatory, the most striking thing about El Caracol from the outside is its unmistakable resemblance to modern astronomical observatories. The tower, built on two platforms, was the location where the ancient Maya meditated and studied the stars. This site does not give off the strong emotions of the other ruins at Chichén Itzá, it is a much more restful place where the primary feeling is one of curiosity. There is a strange complex of emotion that hangs over the place, though, regret for knowledge lost, regret that the sacredness of the place has been lost, resignation to the path of change.

time to explore the grounds on your own, perhaps to have your own encounter with one of the ancient spirits of the Maya. If you travel to Chichén Itzá during the Equinoxes (March 21, September 21), remember, this is a popular destination for spirituallyminded travelers. You will meet many like-minded people, but you may find it crowded. Book reservations well in advance for this period. Bus tours, which originate at local hotels, cost about $75-$100 US dollars. Ours tour bus included a stop at a local tourist art centre and the Ik-Kil cenoté. You can swim at Ik-Kil if you want to, but our stop was short, only 45 minutes. You may wish to rent a car and travel to the many other local attractions, such as the ruins at Tulum. If you enjoy snorkeling, swimming and diving, you will want to visit Cozumel, or eco-parks like Xel-Ha and Xcaret where you can swim with dolphins, snorkel with angel fish and stingrays, and swim an underground river.

What Is the Higher Self? by Candice Creelman and Danard Willisko Most people are familiar with the term, "Higher Self ", but how many really know what it means and why it’s important to develop a relationship with our Divine Selves. What is the Higher Self? When we talk about our Higher Self, it tends to conjure up images of an angelic, mystical being located in some faraway place. Though there is a small amount of truth to that image, the Higher Self is a lot more physical and local than most people tend to imagine. It is true that there is an aspect of us that does exist beyond our physicality. This is the unseen part that helps to get us to where we need to be – the part that is a manifestation God / Goddess / All That Is. She acts as a guide, counselor, best friend, parent, and many other aspects depending on what we need at any given moment. What most people don’t realize is that there is also a physical component to this higher part of us. Our Higher Self will communicate with us in various ways: through intuition, hunches, sudden unexpected life changes, etc. We may or may not choose to listen or act on those communications. But it is our physical self that is the “receiver” of these messages. If one chooses to receive and follow that guidance, the potential is that one would become the physical manifestation of his or her Divine Self. If not, then the opposite is true to the varying degree at which one chooses to accept and follow the divine guidance brought through from the Higher Self. And because our Divine or Higher Self is an infinite being, our own potential is also infinite.

is waiting for us to call upon her and will never leave us.

from that moment, that this was the place.

We can all learn to have a very real and physical communication with our Higher Selves. The process is not as difficult as one would think, it just takes a little bit of practice and patience. We’ve all experience hunches, or gut feelings that seemingly come from out of the blue, telling us something that doesn’t always appear to be logical. We’ve all experienced moments when we choose to follow that guidance, even if it didn’t make any sense, only to find out, there was a reason why we were guided in that direction. This is our Higher Self talking. These knowings that we receive aren’t coming from nowhere, they are coming directly from the part of ourselves that is in Spirit who can see the full picture even when we cannot. If we could learn to tap into that knowing part, we would be able to bypass many difficult lessons and the flow of our life would be much freer and fluid than otherwise possible.

About an hour later the landlord called us back. We went to check the place out and it was perfect! We knew from the moment we walked in, that this was the place we were looking for. We gave our new landlords a deposit, signed the lease, and went on our merry way. Three weeks later we took possession and started creating our healing space, and have been happy with our new home ever since.

My partner and I were looking for a new place to live. We began the process in the usual way; looking through newspapers, online listings, etc. We spent a lot of time and energy making phone calls, driving to potential new homes, talking to potential landlords, all to no real avail. Nothing that we saw would really suit our needs and wants. After several weeks of frustration, we made a conscious choice to be divinely guided. One day, I suggested that we should just start driving around the area that we wanted to live, and if one of us got an intuitive hit to turn down a particular street then we would follow that.

The main function of our Higher Self is to help us gain access to the information that resides within our Within a few hours or less we had Divine blueprint.

As soon as we consciously decided to follow divine guidance, we found a place in literally a few hours. To top it off, we not only found our new home quickly, but it was a very enjoyable experience in the process as well and completely stress-free. This is what can be accomplished when you partner with your Divine self and trust that it will guide you to where you need to be. Trust, faith and intent are also very important parts of this recipe, which we will cover in a later article. In the next article, we will discuss a process that I have learned, adapted and taught others over my many years of my own study, which you can learn easily and quickly. This technique will give you a means of visualizing your Higher Self and creating a conscious communication with her on a regular basis.

Thermogram instead of Mammogram? Many people are asking about Alfa Thermodiagnostic testing. Regulation Thermography is the measurement of heat, which is recorded in the form of a diagram. Two measurements are taken at specific points in the head, chest, breast and below the breast to the legs. The first measurement gives skin temperature of the adapted organism to its environment. The second measures the skin temperature after cooling off for 10 minutes. Results provide information about the regulation of the organism.

There are several benefits to this testing. First, no radiation is used. Second, the breasts are not painfully squished into a little box. Third, it gives information regarding the head, teeth, lymph, chest, breast, digestion, kidneys basically most everything above the legs.

Living a Life of Magic by Lynn Andrews Magic, what a wonderful part of life! It is what fills our souls with joy, the hope that is found in each new sunrise. Magic is what warms our bones on a cold winter day as the sun glints off the frozen snow creating miniature prisms of beautiful dancing light that capture our imagination and catapult us into a very special place. It is what cools us down when it is 110º in the shade and we feel the caress of a gentle breeze on our cheek. Magic is the love that we experience when we see a newborn child or look into the wisdom that is reflected in the eyes of the oldest person we’ve ever met. Like the power of Stonehenge, magic is part of the unknowable, that which we cannot describe but which exists and makes our lives extraordinary. It is part of the goodness of our spirit, the mysterious and intriguing aspect that makes our spiritual life so relevant no matter what. Magic is part of the fantastic and the fantastical experience of life, and we do need both. This world of ours is filled with so much that is truly wonderful and miraculous. It is also filled with much that is chaotic, stressful and destructive. On any given day, you and I experience more chaos 22 • www.bodysoulspiritexpo.com FALL/WINTER2012

and confusion than the world has ever known simply because we chose to be born into this world at this important juncture in human history. My teachers often say that human beings were never meant to live under the kind of stress that we face in today’s world, yet here we are … and somehow, we know intuitively that things are going to work out in spite of all the negativity that surrounds us.

Such is the power of magic, that it can transform even the darkest of times into the promise of a new and better future if only we will focus on the genius of human ingenuity and the brilliance of the natural world, instead of focusing on the distractions. Magic also has its ‘other side,’ the side of magic that we refer to as ‘magic thinking’ where, like Cinderella, you find yourself waiting for some singular person or event to come along and change

everything in your life and you live happily ever after. We all need these flights of fantasy once in a while, but you know you are in trouble when you find yourself waiting … and waiting … and waiting, until you wake up one day and life isn’t magical any more. Magic thinking can become a very dangerous and destructive distraction. It is a distraction that takes you completely out of the magic in life, for magic is power; distractions are what dissipate and destroy power. To have power in life, you must take power; it is never just given to you. When you are engaged in magic thinking, you bleed off your heat and you bleed off your power, no matter how long you wait or how ardently you wish, because magic thinking is not real. Magic, however, is as real as anything you will ever see, touch, feel, taste or hear in the world. Magic is understanding where God is in your life, understanding that there is a way to hold an impeccability in your life that is completely comprehensible and reasonable. It is accepting that there is more to life than what you see. Magic is what happens when something comes out of

Tools to melt away stress and anxiety – fast. When was the last time you were stressed? Scratch that. When was the last time you weren’t stressed? What’s your excuse for not relieving your stress? “I’m too busy” is the most popular, although there are infinite others. The challenge is that by remaining stressed, you become more susceptible to illness, less efficient, your drive and creativity are lowered, and every part of your life can suffer.

What are some stress management options that are easy to implement in your lifestyle? • Meditate. 20 minutes of meditation can fit into your lunch break at work, or before walking into the front door at home to face the chaos. Breath counting is the most common for stress relief. It simply involves closing your eyes, sitting up straight and counting each slow, deep breath up to 10, then starting again. One… Two… Three…

It’s not all bad though. Sometimes a little bit of stress can help - such as during a crocodile attack. While the croc is trying to make you into a meal, stress will provide the boost of adrenaline you need to run fast, and the increased blood pressure will provide the fuel your muscles need to climb the tallest tree, all the while ensuring a laser-like focus on the source of the stress – the marauding reptile. Outside of genuine emergencies, those same symptoms can be damaging and the focus that helps you avoid being lunch becomes a burden. The source of the stress could be as simple as a negative comment from a boss that tenses up your shoulders, shoots adrenaline through your veins and removes your ability to accomplish the task at hand. Now, all you can think about is what your boss said, what you said, and what you should have done - when you should be focused on finishing the stack of reports on your desk.

• Holiday. Turn off your cell phone and leave town. It gets away from all of the daily stressors and resets your body. It also allows you to focus on yourself and do what you want – whether it’s reading, hiking or exploring – without any time limits or expectations.

• Technology. Yes, I did say technology. There are technological stress relievers that are fast, easy and efficient - and some can even be used while you’re working. If you haven’t heard of PEMF yet, it is something worth familiarizing yourself with. It’s basically frequency waves that are pulsed through the air to affect your body in a variety of positive ways, based on the settings you choose. If you choose to use technology, I recommend the PERL-M (resonantlight. com). It is a non-contact PEMF device that affects everyone within a 30’ radius. It is perfect for anything from controlling stress and anxiety in an office during busy season, to inducing meditation in a yoga studio during class, or relaxing a massage therapy client before treatment. It’s not cheap, but nothing good ever is. If you’re enterprising, you could even talk the boss into paying to make the entire office happier and more productive! Regardless of which method or methods you choose to use, remember that by decreasing your stress levels you will be healthier, happier, easier to get along with and basically a better person.
