Serving South of Boston to the Cape in Print and Online Hello Special Friends, Throughout my journey, I’ve learned to start really paying more attention to the conversations I am having in my head. You know, that "self-talk” that gives voice to the beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world? Well, I’ve come to find out that all that internal chatter or self-talk can either help me or hinder me in leading a happier, more meaningful and fulfilling life. A beautiful quote that holds true to my belief system is so simply stated by Buddha – “What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.” Listen to your self-talk more carefully! Whether you believe it or not, our self-talk echoes the beliefs that we have come to accept as TRUE, including worst-case scenarios – the should-haves, would-haves, and could-haves. These thoughts that keep humming in your head can become things you expect to repeat, and you may replay the what-if scenarios to a self-defeating outcome. If your self-talk is compelling enough, you can convince yourself to action or the negative result of immobility. Please, honor and embrace your infinite worth by keeping only what serves your highest good and releasing yourself of what no longer serves your best interest. I have found that surrounding myself with positive people, meditation, quotes, art, music lyrics and affirmations inspire me to reflect on what I am feeling inside and gives me the courage to try to move on…to grow beyond my preconceived limitations and to pursue the things that enliven and inspire me! I hope you enjoy our cover art by energy artist Julia Watkins, called "Moon Dancer," and that you are inspired by this art style, known as "energism." It “seeks to use art to help humanity connect to a universal energy flow promoting both healing and higher consciousness.” (Julia Watkins) Let Healthy Living Magazine inspire and motivate you to push ahead and to conquer what holds you back – to shine your bright, sparkling inner light. Mahatma Gandhi brilliantly reminds us, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” So . . . live to harness your personal power and do it while dancing with complete abandon, an open heart and no judgement.

Awaken and Thrive with these suggested Modalities. A modality is typically the method of application of any therapeutic agent in the physical treatment of a disorder. In homeopathy, it’s a term used for any factor that alleviates or aggravates a main symptom as an expression of the uniqueness of an individual.

Alchemy Alchemy is commonly known as: 1. a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy practiced in the MiddleAges and the Renaissance, and concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into golf, and with finding a universal solvent and an elixir of life. 2. any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value.

While there remains different and specific definitions of what alchemy is, all definitions essentially reflect the shift from one thing to another – one level of life, a vibration or an energy transforming into another, often higher and often a more cohesive, field of vibrations. This can be as simple as transmuting a vibration such as mistrust to trust, or as complex as shifting a carbonbased form to a crystalline form. Both can be construed as an alchemical process. Here we are talking about breaking free from limitations and expanding into your unlimited potentials of well-being, vitality, creativity, excitement and purpose. The Alchemy of Love and Light is the process by which you return to that which you are, and that which you have always been. Within the caterpillar has always lived the butterfly.  Jasmine Heffernan Alchemy Teacher, Authentic Life Guide and Metaphysical Writer. Hanover, MA continued on page 4 . . .

Holistic Physical Therapy Ian L. Rubinstein, M.P.T., M.R., owner of Eclectic Physical Therapy™, has over 24 years experience helping thousands of patients with their physical discomforts. He has created an integrative style of therapies, combining manual soft tissue release techniques with traditional physical therapy. This not-so-typical intervention has proven key to addressing his patients’ many states of “dis—ease”. Ian’s specialties include, but are not limited to: Neck/ Back Pain, Concussions, Headaches/Migraines, Bulging/ Herniated Discs, Pinched Nerves, Tendonitis/Bursitis, TMJ Dysfunctions, Fibromyalgia. Experience has taught Ian that under physical duress, restrictions develop that cause an individual’s body tissues to feel restricted, burdened, and/or “dis—eased”.

Remove the core restrictions and the body returns to its relaxed, balanced, healthy state. He has developed a unique therapy that focuses on listening to the body, identifying the trouble areas, and intuitively responding to its needs. Unlike traditional chiropractic and physical therapy methods which emphasize routine manipulation of the symptomatic body part, Ian utilizes a distinctive approach by incorporating techniques like Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, Visceral Manipulation and other forms of soft tissue release. This is what he refers to as “Light Touch” therapy. This diverse blend provides a patient with a therapy flexible enough to address many causes of the symptoms. 

“ Listen to the body, address its core issues, and let it perform the corrective releases it already knows how to do.”

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic Therapy refers to water-based treatments or exercises of therapeutic intent, in particular for relaxation, fitness, and physical rehabilitation. Treatments and exercises are performed while floating, partially submerged, or fully submerged in water. Aquatic Therapy is a refreshing change of pace from land-based therapy, and can also be used in cases where individuals are in a great deal of pain and are not able to put full weight on limbs. The buoyancy of the water can reduce weight-bearing on the body by as much as 80%. It also has a positive impact on motion and flexibility, reduces pressure to joints, and can increase the blood flow to injured areas. Aquatic Therapy is a great way to gain motion, and in some cases, can help prepare you for land-based therapy.  Eric Edelman BS, PT Owner, Peak Physical Therapy & Wellness Quincy, Norwell and Scituate, MA


it ultimately addresses fearlessness and compassion. Breakti facilitates processes by which students may think outside of the box (of yoga, dance, inversion, etc.) and uses that work to encourage inclusiveness and connection both inside and outside yoga culture. We have a lot of difficult subjects to address as practitioners that also require fearlessness and compassion: accessibility to yoga for people from all economic backgrounds; the commodification of yoga; ethnic, racial and gender diversity in yoga; environmental destruction and how our choices affect the natural world; body image and selfie culture; etc. My personal mission is to continue to use the work of Breakti to keep showing practitioners on a personal level that they are capable and strong, regardless of what tricks they can do; and on a universal level to help them witness interdependence and the great need in our world for more compassion and inclusivity. 

(Editor’s Pick) Breakti is a mindful and well-aligned (both in body and intention) exploration of yoga and break dancing/street dance. On another level it is simply a movement class that breaks down the perceived barriers around yoga and, to a lesser extent, dance. On the mental and spiritual plane

Biofield Tuning with Tuning Forks

Tuning forks are used to connect to the energy field through sound vibration, similar to sonar, to detect dissonant energy located there. (ie: stress, pain, trauma, emotion) This process is able to correct distorted vibrational energy, help to regain balance, impact relief and restore trapped energy to the body. The improvement may be immediate! Expect a shift! Barbara is certified by Eileen McKusick, author of "Tuning the Human Biofield."  Barbara Barker

Biophoton Therapy

Technical developments in the 1970s made it possible to observe and measure very tiny amounts of light. This led to the discovery that cells in our bodies are continuously absorbing and emitting light (each cell emits 100,000 photons per second). It has been verified that biophotons serve as the information system which steers and controls the thousands of biochemical reactions taking place within each cell of our body every second of our lives. In other words, biophotons are the software that runs all body functions.

Client Centered Approach When it comes to addressing any disease, no one is smarter than the patient, themselves. With that in mind, the practitioner and his/her modalities need to be responsive to what their body needs. Impartiality, openness and heartfelt concern for assistance are best when utilizing those techniques that are designed to responsively correct the root causes of the diseases. The rest is up to them.  Ian L. Rubinstein, M.P.T., M.R.

Myofascial Release

than five minutes to release many layers of the fascia. The fascial restrictions are like layers of an onion; after a release occurs, the therapist’s hand can then go deeper to the next layer of tightness. The alignment of the pelvis is a key component to this work and addressed with all patients regardless of their diagnosis. The pelvis is the body’s foundation and, if it is rotated, the abnormal forces can create additional restrictions throughout the body.  Dr. Megan Ciccolo

Doctor of Physical Therapy Whitman, MA

Myofascial release works by the therapist using her hands, and sometimes elbows, to apply sustained pressure into the areas of fascial restriction (the fascia is a thin sheath of fibrous tissue enclosing a muscle or other organ). The therapist finds the barrier and waits for the tissue to soften. It takes a minimum of five minutes for the collagen component of the tissue to soften; anything less than that is only addressing the elastin component of the fascia and results will be temporary. Opening the collagen of the fascia allows the tissue to rehydrate leading to more permanent results. Many techniques are held for much longer

your own mind. Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who didn’t speak your language, and they couldn’t understand you? The classic example of this is when someone goes out to a restaurant in a foreign country and they think they ordered steak but, when the food shows up, it turns out they actually asked for liver stew. In NLP, we have a saying: the conscious mind is the goal setter, and the unconscious mind is the goal getter. Your unconscious mind is not out to get you – rather, it’s out to get FOR YOU whatever you want in life. However, if you don’t know how to communicate what you want properly, it will keep bringing steaming bowls of liver stew out of the kitchen.  Dr. Matthew B. James

It is regarded by many scientists as one of the only philosophies in the spiritual realm that is based on reason and faith. This is also known as putting faith into action. Taking responsibility in one’s life rather than waiting for a sign. Chanting can bring great meditative benefits. By use of sound, breath and rhythm, chanting can adjust our internal state. Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is an unremarkable step further that without a doubt, changes our Karma, breaking the cycle and creating a healthy, happy and holistic life for oneself and others.

Superbrain Yoga Choa Kok Sui reveals an ancient Indian technique of increasing your brain power by harnessing the body’s primordial energies. The exercise works using the body’s energy centres which absorb, digest, and distribute energy to different parts of the body. These primary energy centres are actually major acupuncture points. Acupressure energy points for the brain, eyes, forehead, mouth, ovaries, parotid, temples, and testes congregate around the area of the ear affected by pressure from the exercise. Performed daily, Superbrain Yoga balances both hemispheres of the brain and quiets that negative voice that runs in the background of our minds. It’s also reported to dramatically help children with learning and behavioral issues. It takes less than two minutes to perform (really!) and enhances any modality that you’re working with.

Research suggests

that antioxidants and other important nutrients may reduce your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Specific antioxidants can have additional benefits as well; for example, vitamin A protects against blindness, and vitamin C may play a role in preventing or alleviating glaucoma. Omega-3 essential fatty acids appear to help the eye in a variety of ways, from alleviating symptoms of dry eye syndrome to guarding against macular damage. A healthy diet for your eyes should include plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Eye Benefits of Vitamins and Micronutrients The following vitamins, minerals and other nutrients have been shown to be essential for good vision and may protect your eyes from sight-robbing conditions and diseases. Incorporating the following foods in your diet will help you get the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of these important eye nutrients. Established by the Institute of Medicine (National Academy of Sciences), the RDA is the average daily dietary intake level of a nutrient sufficient to meet the requirements of nearly all healthy individuals in a specific life stage and gender group. While the RDA is a useful reference, some eye care practitioners recommend higher daily intakes of certain nutrients for people at risk for eye problems. [n the following list, mg = milligram; mcg = microgram (1/1000 of a mg) and IU = International Unit.]


When taken in combination with zinc and vitamins C and E, beta-carotene may reduce the progression of macular degeneration. Carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, butternut squash. RDA: None (most supplements contain 5,000 to 25,000 IU). Bioflavonoids (Flavonoids) 


by Gary Heiting, OD

Nutrition for Healthy Eyes

May protect against cataracts and macular degeneration. Tea, red wine, citrus fruits, bilberries, blueberries, cherries, legumes, soy products. RDA: None. Lutein and Zeaxanthin May prevent cataracts and macular degeneration. Spinach, kale, turnip greens, collard greens, squash. RDA: None.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

May help prevent macular degeneration (AMD) and dry eyes. Cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel and herring; fish oil supplements, freshly ground flaxseeds, walnuts. RDA: None; but for cardiovascular benefits, the American Heart Association recommends approximately 1,000 mg daily.


When combined with carotenoids and vitamins C and E, may reduce risk of advanced AMD. Seafood (shrimp, crab, salmon, halibut), Brazil nuts, enriched noodles, brown rice. RDA: 55 mcg for teens and adults (60 mcg for women during pregnancy and 70 mcg when breast-feeding). Vitamin A May protect against night blindness and dry eyes. Beef or chicken liver; eggs, butter, milk. RDA: 3,000 IU for men; 2,333 IU for women (2,567 IU during pregnancy and 4,333 IU when breast-feeding). Vitamin C May reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. Sweet peppers (red or green), kale, strawberries, broccoli, oranges, cantaloupe. RDA: 90 mg for men; 70 mg for women (85 mg during pregnancy and 120 mg when breast-feeding).

Vitamin D May reduce the risk of

macular degeneration. Salmon, sardines, mackerel, milk; orange juice fortified with vitamin D. RDA: None, but the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends 400 IU per day

for infants, children and adolescents, and many experts recommend higher daily intakes for adults. The best source of vitamin D is exposure to sunlight. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun stimulates production of vitamin D in human skin, and just a few minutes of exposure to sunlight each day (without sunscreen) will insure your body is producing adequate amounts of vitamin D.

Vitamin E

When combined with carotenoids and vitamin C, may reduce the risk of advanced AMD.

Almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts. RDA: 15 mg for teens and adults (15 mg for women during pregnancy and 19 mg when breast-feeding).


Helps vitamin A reduce the risk of night blindness; may play a role in reducing risk of advanced AMD. Food sources: Oysters, beef, Dungeness crab, turkey (dark meat). RDA: 11 mg for men; 8 mg for women (11 mg during pregnancy and 12 mg when breast-feeding). In general, it's best to obtain most nutrients through a healthy diet, including at least two servings of fish per week and plenty of colorful fruits and vegetables. If you plan to begin a regimen of eye vitamins, be sure to discuss this with your optometrist or ophthalmologist. Taking too much of certain vision supplements can cause problems, especially if you are taking prescription medications for health problems.

The Brain Chemicals That Make You Happy (And How To Trigger Them)

hen we ask ourselves what makes us happy, we often think of the circumstances, possessions, or people in our lives. In reality, happiness is largely a chemical experience. Four main neurochemicals, hormones, and neurotransmitters generated in the brain are fundamentally responsible for creating the sensations and emotions we've come to associate with happiness. This is actually great news. It means even when circumstances, possessions, or people in our lives aren't exactly as we'd like them to be, there are simple ways we can increase our happy brain chemicals and alter our moods.

2. SEROTONIN Serotonin may be the best-known happiness chemical because it's the one that antidepressant medication primarily addresses.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is naturally triggered by several things we can do each day.


Healthy Living Magazine SPRING/SUMMER 2016 

Volunteering has been shown to increase dopamine as well as have other long-term health benefits. And some research has even found that it only takes thoughts of loving kindness to bring on the dopamine high.

4. OXYTOCIN Mothers may be familiar with oxytocin, the hormone produced in abundance during pregnancy and breastfeeding. It's also the high behind MDMA, a popular party drug, which releases oxytocin in the brain. Oxytocin is primarily associated with loving touch and close relationships. SEROTONIN This hormone provides a multiple whammy of warm fuzzies, stimulating dopamine and OXYTOCIN by serotonin, while reducing anxiety.

get a natural dose of dopamine when you perform acts of kindness toward others.

If you're like me, happiness may at times feel like the unachievable holy grail of emotion. But luckily, our brains and bodies are constantly undergoing complex chemical processes that we can affect with our daily actions. Once we understand how our feel-good hormones and neurotransmitters work, we may be able to trigger them more easily than we realized. Kaia Roman is the author of the upcoming book, The Joy Plan.

"Lotus Life Designs feature inspirational and positive messages for women and girls of all ages and was inspired by my personal belief that we all have the power to create the life we want for ourselves, beginning with what we choose to focus on and the words we choose to use, not only with ourselves, but with others as well. My vision for Lotus Life was to contribute something to the world that would help replace negative obstacles that separate us from connecting through the heart. I believe the power of words is a great place to start. The inspirational messages I have chosen will hopefully inspire you to see all the positives in your own life, as well as all the possibilities that lie within you! Feel free to pay forward all the goodness you feel once you slip into your Lotus Life shirt; I guarantee you will feel fabulous!"

"Drink in your positive intentions with these very special organic blends of IamTra Tea! Each blend, packaged in a 16 oz. tin canister, has its own corresponding mantra. Pair your tea with the IamTra cup and write in your custom Iam intention and stick to it!  Take in your positive energy with each sip. In a "eureka" moment, it occurred to me to combine the concepts of hydration and life design, and write my intentions for my life on my water

bottle! Everywhere I went my water bottle went with me -- so I always had my intentions or mantras in view, and I always had water at my fingertips. I still do this today, and the life I envisioned has materialized. IamTra products (water bottles, cups, tea, magnets, beads, family table water bottle, etc.) are tools that I use in my daily life for healthy living, inside and out." Jennifer

Fun Happy Triggers


by Drew Canole

Healthy Foods Swaps

Bread < Collard Wrap

Bread is full of sugar and carbs, which don’t help if you’re trying to lose weight. Aside from that, it’s often cut with a ton of unnecessary ingredients for shelf life and naturally contains gluten (responsible for the chewiness in bread). Roughly 20 million people in the US have some sort of intolerance to wheat/gluten simply because of the way it’s been overprocessed. These factors often lead to digestive and skin issues, not to mention brain fog and potentially chronic illness and disease. Collards are a great upgrade and are not only really tasty, but they’re loaded with nutrients. They are part of the cruciferous family and are said to have cholesterol-lowering ability. They are chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, K, C, manganese, fiber, calcium and B vitamins.

Cheese < Nutritional Yeast

Though many people can tolerate dairy, we must emphasize again that dairy creates inflammation in the body and is also mucus-forming. Try sprinkling nutritional yeast on items you’d typically sprinkle cheese on. Sure, it won’t give you the ooey-gooey texture of cheese, but it provides a very similar flavor, and nutritional yeast contains vitamin B12 which, in addition to being a complete protein, means it contains all the amino acids we must get from our food. It’s also low in fat and sodium, is free of sugar and gluten and contains iron.

Alfredo Sauce < Vegan Pesto

Cream-based sauces pack a ton of calories, sodium and the obvious, dairy (typically from conventional cows). Pesto is a great upgrade, using nutritional yeast in place of cheese. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of this. Once you use it, you’ll be hooked, just like me.

Conventional Dairy < Kefir

Added hormones, yuck! Conventional dairy is full of it as well as sugar. Kefir, however, is full of beneficial bacteria to support a healthy gut and immune system. It can even help those with lactose intolerance begin to tolerate lactose again.

Try organic goat’s milk kefir with turmeric powder. This drink is antiinflammatory and so good!

Canola Oil < Coconut Oil

can improve blood cholesterol levels as well as potentially lower the risk for heart disease. This healthy MCT oil is great for brain health and immunity!

Canola oil is made from the rapeseed plant and is one of the highest GMO crops, making it a terrible choice when it comes to cooking your super healthy food. Coconut oil is a superfood in its own right, as it packs a powerful punch when it comes to all the nutrients it contains. Containing beneficial MCTs – medium chain triglycerides – coconut oil is a great choice for cooking with as it can be heated at any temperature without becoming rancid (one of the very few oils that can say that). Coconut oil can help you BURN MORE FAT (you read that right!) and increase energy expenditure by as much as 5%. It’s considered an anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and

Growing up

, you were completely at the will of your parents. Depending on how much love, time, and attention your parents gave you, their involvement in your life undoubtedly affected how you show up in your romantic relationships. If they were there for you, never there for you, or too there for you, you will be drawn to different kinds of partners for your romantic relationships. We are at our most vulnerable within the context of our familial and our intimate relationships. So naturally, our unresolved emotional issues from one (familial) bleeds in to the other (intimacy). From an early age, you learned to be a counterbalance to the other people in your immediate family. Whatever the family unit needed you to be, you became. If your parent/s neglected you, you may be prone to attracting similarly

distant partners in your relationships. If a parent was quick to anger, you learned to walk lightly and be so selfsufficient that you didn’t need any parenting. If one of your parents periodically abandoned you, you may be attracted to partners in the future whose love you have to “earn”, as opposed to being attracted to people that already love you. Since you are so used to being in a certain role within your family, you find partners that keep you stuck in that role (without a lot of self-awareness/self-development or talk-based therapy to intervene in your unconscious patterns). So unless you become aware of, and shift your patterns, you will continue to live out the same emotional trauma that you experienced as a young child. So how do you become aware of how your childhood affects your current emotional patterns and love

life? Read on and see if you recognize any (or several) of the following common issues that I see in my coaching clients.

Abandonment (Fear

of Loss or Rejection) Did you have neglectful parents? Did they abandon you once or frequently, either by physically leaving or by being emotionally unavailable due to their

own issues? Did you rarely have a parental figure you felt like you could lean on? continued on page 16 . . .

Childhood IssuesPlaying Out in Your Love Life

You may cling to potential partners because you’re afraid of being left and you have been conditioned to have an underlying belief that the relationships that you need most deeply will not work out in the long run. While you desperately want love and affection more than anything else, you are also terrified of letting others in to love you deeply.

Defectiveness (Fear of

Being Unlovable) Defectiveness is the feeling that you are unworthy or undeserving of being loved. The feeling that you are somehow defective as a person (also known as shamebased thinking). A sense of defectiveness often comes from a mean or dismissive parent. Especially if you were a more sensitive or introverted child, a cruel familial relationship would weigh heavily on your self-esteem for many years to come. Sit with this feeling and follow it down. If you feel that unique sense of shame when your heart feels rubbed the wrong way… listen to what your heart is telling you. What kinds of thoughts come up for you? And when you feel this way, what defense mechanisms do you employ? Do you keep people at arms

distance emotionally? Do you shut down and become passive in your communication? Your coping mechanism for not feeling worthy of being loved would be to distance yourself from loving relationships of any sort. You might be reluctant to let anyone see you for who you are because “who you are” doesn’t feel good enough to be loved. It can be a scary endeavour to start to shift your behaviour, but small steps will start you on your journey. You don’t have to swing the pendulum from the mindset of “I’m not worthy of love and belonging” to walking around and being an open, vulnerable, exposed wound of a person. Who you choose to let in to your personal space (thoughts, feelings, etc.) is always up to you. And you can take it at your own pace.

Subjugation (People

Pleasing) Subjugators are passive people-pleasers in their relationships. The unconscious process being “If I’m extra nice to you and make you feel amazing with every bit of my being, then you will have to stay and love me. You won’t reject me like the people in my past did.” By making yourself subservient to your partner and prioritizing their needs over yours, you might think you are doing them a favour by adding value to their life. But in reality, you are setting up a lose-lose dynamic that hurts both of you. You don’t get your

emotional needs met, and your partner often feels like they bear the weight of being responsible for your mood (since your mood is so dependent on how they feel moment to moment). When self-sacrificing subjugators do start to prioritize their emotional needs in the context of relationships, their mind resists it and they often feel guilty for giving themselves any time or attention.

Dependency (Being Overly Reliant on Others) Were your parents overbearing? Did they make every little decision for you? Were you made to feel apprehensive about making decisions for yourself? It’s natural that your parents would be making the majority of your decisions for you when you were very young (what you ate, what you spent your time doing), but after a certain age if you weren’t allowed or trusted to make choices for yourself then you will be often attracted to partners that make the majority of your decisions as well. You might think it’s a good thing to let your partner choose every movie you see together or where you go for a vacation or how much you spend or save, but in reality, you will end up feeling resentful of having little choice, and your partner will not respect your lack of interest. In addition, over time your selfesteem will be eroded, and you may feel unable to leave an unhealthy relationship if you are overly dependent on your partner.  In healthy adult partnerships, both people are comfortable expressing their desires, and they make decisions together.

Entitlement (Inflexible and

Unrealistic Expectations) If you were raised with parents who had weak personal boundaries (i.e. they found it difficult to say “no” to you) then you are at a higher risk of developing a sense of entitlement about the world and an unrealistic set of expectations

what you want in order to prove their love, but this is a very unhealthy view of what love is.

What to do about it? Understand that everything your parents did for you they did from one of two places: their love for you, or their unconscious patterns that their parents put into them. Even if the loving intention isn’t immediately apparent, dig for it. Think “how could their behaviour possibly have come from a place of love? I’ve had clients whose parents were incessantly challenging towards them because they recognized their

child’s “weakness” or softness that they saw in themselves and they wanted to keep pushing their child to harden up so as to not let the world hurt them as much. They did it as a protective mechanism that they thought would benefit their child. Another client told me her father was an alcoholic who was emotionally distant. Her father had the same relationship with his own father, so had thought it best to keep children at arms distance rather than “poison” them with his presence, or have his behaviour rub off on them. If you keep digging far enough, you will find their actions rooted in love. Sex and relationship coach Jordan Gray helps people remove their emotional blocks and maintain thriving intimate relationships. "I believe that deeply fulfilling intimate relationships can be available to every person on the planet, as long as they know how to get out of their own way and begin to love on purpose." Jordan has made it his life’s work to make thriving relationships attainable to everyone. You can see more of his writing at

for your intimate relationships. As previously mentioned in this article, whatever role your family unit required you to fulfill, you learned to fill it. If your parents didn’t give you any structure growing up, you would push them further to see where their boundaries were. You would ask yourself “How much can I get away with? How many toys/vacations/gifts can I guilt out of them?” Children need boundaries and they thrive when they have parents that have the ability to say no to them. Without these boundaries growing up, you will tend towards finding partners that are similarly passive and who have a difficult time saying no to you. When someone does have healthy boundaries, it may frustrate or repel you, because you can’t get what you want from them like you could from your parents. You may feel that they need to do

Want To Find Your Dharma? Ask Yourself These 7 Questions

Photo Credit: Stocksy

Tof Dharma he Buddhist concept has a central philosophy

that all is whole and complete as it is. There is no accident in the entire universe. Even your reading this right now is not accidental, nor my writing it. We are together in this grand interplay of cosmic elements. Most of the daily challenges we experience as human beings originate from a lack of understanding. Dharma is the way out of this. The way to cultivate refinement of the mind and uplift the human experience from ignorance and suffering, is to practice Dharma. So what is this cryptic and mysterious notion of Dharma and is there a way to decode it for modern consumption? Dharma is a broad concept with many understandings and definitions, very much like the term coined by Chinese philosophy as Tao. Its translation as "the path" or "the way", Tao and Dharma support the natural order 

of the universe and those who are in harmony with it. Dharma could also be described as the nature of "what is" and in Buddhism, refers to the practice of following the Buddha's teachings. The diligent observance and practice of these teachings, is seen as the way to enlightenment. One could argue that Dharma is a truth, a teaching, a practice and enlightenment itself. Living in Dharma means living ones' true purpose and personality, and expressing it in the world. By living quietly in fear, limitation, or otherwise, we are denying the world our one-ofa-kind gifts. Living from the ego denies the full expression of our talents for the benefit of others. The purpose of Dharma is to allow the everyone in the world to evolve to their full potential.

"We know we are in Dharma when we cannot think of anything else we would rather be doing with our life." —David Simon

Living a meaningful life requires that we live in Dharma, in service of the whole of creation. Dharma is an active opening, a mission, a doorway, a purpose, a destiny, but also a passive process of surrender.

How does one relate to the seemingly mystical and intangible elements to finding one's Dharma?

So how do you find YOU R Dharma

For the whole symphony of the universe to vibrate at its most refined and poetic, it requires all individual instruments (that's us!) to play their part. Thus, one thing is essential for the greater good — each person must follow their authentic path.

Here are seven questions to meditate on: Do you have any idea what your Dharma is?

If every person sang their song, the symphony would be sublime, whole and complete.

Have you found it yet?

I am not here by mistake. And neither are you! I am serving the whole, as are you. The Dharma needs all instruments to express themselves.

How would you live differently if you knew your days were numbered?

Where have you looked?

Which people do you admire most and why?

And then the whole universe supports us when we act according to our true nature, our calling and our purpose — our whole reason for being.

Here are seven ways you can learn to communicate with your spirit guides:

guardian angel.

Ever since I was a little girl, it always seemed like there was something there — an energy I couldn't quite explain, a presence that kept me out of harm’s way and always guided me in the right direction. For years, I thought I was crazy for feeling this way. I never told anyone about it, for the fear of being judged or ridiculed. But then, in 2002, all of that changed. I was driving down a deserted winding road in the middle of the night when I started to feel very tired and my eyelids began to close. Then I was abruptly shocked awake by the lights of a tractor-trailer, speeding right toward me. Before I could even react, I felt the steering wheel being pulled on its own. As if in slow motion, I watched as my car was redirected safely back into my lane. As the tractor trailer whooshed on past me, it felt like my car was on a cloud, being guided by

angel wings. With my heart thumping in my chest, I pulled over and caught my breath. I knew it was a guardian angel who saved me. I felt goosebumps and a shiver down my spine. I couldn't believe I was safe. That was not the first time, nor the last, that I had been in touch with my guardian angels. As the years have gone by, these guardians visit me almost daily. I’ve come to know them as my “spirit guides,” because I know they are there to help me follow my spiritual path – the one that is in true alignment with my soul. Everyone has a spirit guide (or several spirit guides), and each of us has the ability to listen to them. They communicate with us in a whisper because they exist at a higher frequency, so we have to be very still, silent, open and accepting.

Tune in and start to believe. To communicate with your guides, you must first believe that you have them. Can you think of moments in your life when you were helped, saved or redirected by some unknown force? Spirit guides come to us in many ways. Spend more time listening to your body, mind and spirit. In those moments of complete stillness, you will receive messages. They may come as images in your head (clairvoyance), a smell or a feeling, or even a sound or voice (clairaudience). Write down what you see, smell, feel or hear, because these are intuitive messages from your guides. continued on page 22 . . .

Connect With Your Spirit Guides

. . . continued from page 21


Meditate with crystals.

Many crystals, amethyst in particular, have been known to have powerful intuitive properties. This purple, brilliant crystal is associated with the Third Eye Chakra, located at the brow between the eyes, associated with intuition and the higher self. When you meditate with amethyst and place the crystal directly on your brow, you will instantly feel increased spiritual awareness as you elevate to a higher state of consciousness. Strengthening our intuition is a direct gateway to our spirit guides.

Get out in nature.

I always feel closest to my guides when I am in nature. Spending time outdoors is very healing and grounding, allowing us to become more in tune with the natural rhythm of the planet. When you’re in nature, close your eyes and listen to the birds, or the sound of the wind, or water from a nearby creek. Place your hands on your heart and ask your spirit guides to come to you. As you sit, you might notice sensations or a presence. This is normal; just take note of how you feel. Part of building a relationship with your guides is also building a relationship with yourself and the earth.

en of Wisdo om m W

Ask your spirit guides to reveal themselves.

You can ask your guides to reveal themselves to you in meditation, through dreams, numbers and messages, or when you are walking in the park. The next time you are alone, you can try saying this out loud: “Dear spirit guides, please reveal yourselves to me, I want to know you better and connect with you in this world. I thank you for your guidance and care.” Then notice in the next few days if you receive any messages, feelings or strange dreams.

This is why it is important to keep a journal, so you can look back and take note of the details you may have missed. Perhaps you saw a red cardinal and you didn’t know the significance of it, but then, a week later, you read somewhere about how cardinals are associated with relationships, marriage, and courtship, and maybe this applied to your life in some way. The more we write down and then come back to later, the more we can decipher the messages being sent to us from our spirit guides.

Try “automatic writing.”

I began the process known as automatic writing, by meditating and asking my spirit guides to come through me. It was a technique I learned after reading the book, Many Lives, Many Masters. I closed my eyes and meditated, allowing myself to go deep into my subconscious. When I awoke, I grabbed the pen next to me and just started writing whatever came out. As I read the words, I was sure it was one of my spirit guides – it didn’t

even look like my own handwriting! The words said: “Yes, we are here. We have always been here and we always will be.” As with all practices, it may take some time to allow yourself to release the ego (that’s you!) and allow your guides to come through.

Tap into your third eye.

There are other ways to tap into your third eye aside from meditation. There’s the ancient Ayurvedic treatment known as the Shirodhara massage. You lie on a massage table and an experienced, certified practitioner will pour warm oil and essential oils on your third eye slowly and rhythmically, stimulating the chakra. You might have visions or sensations, or you might just feel completely relaxed and full of bliss.

Lastly, you can simply try a third eye massage on yourself or a friend. Lay down in a quiet and peaceful place, with some relaxing music. With the tips of your fingertips, begin to slowly massage the area between your eyebrows, using small, gentle circles. Close your eyes and imagine that this area is being awakened and renewed. Breathe in and out deeply and slowly.


Keep a spirit guide journal.

Each of these techniques can bring you one step closer to meeting your spirit guides. I hope you can find the time to listen to your spirit guides – they are speaking to you every day and have so much to say.

You can also study Reiki, the ancient Japanese form of energy healing. When I received my first attunement as a practitioner, I was able to see completely into my third eye. I saw the royal purple color, associated with the sixth chakra, flush through my body and open my mind. I know for certain this Reiki attunement awakened a higher state of consciousness.
