Publisher’s Letter... Dear Friend: Welcome to the Evolving Magazine annual edition on health and wellness. It’s a topic we all think about daily: what we eat, what forms of naturopathic and alternative remedies we educate ourselves about, what natural and prescription drugs we choose for our lifestyles, and wellness in general (including mental health, physical exercise, spirituality, and more). The search for wellness is part of every facet of our lives— and of this publication.

Love the Surprising Benefits of Cupping Therapy 10

What does the term wellness actually mean? I believe it’s a way of living, a belief system, and a quest for more. Don Ardell, Ph.D., of the Living Well Center at the University of Buffalo defines wellness as: “Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life. It begins with a conscious decision to shape a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is a mindset, a predisposition to adopt a series of key principles in varied life areas that lead to high levels of well-being and life satisfaction.”

Shapeshifter Alchemy: Awakening the Magic We Are

I

’ve always been intrigued by the concept of alchemy. Growing up, alchemy brought with it images of medieval castles, wizards and large cauldrons. Alchemy has its roots in the practices of magic and healing which primarily dealt with the transformation of base metals to gold, or of creating a universal elixir. When I thought of alchemy, I thought of magic, transformations and all sorts of possibilities extending outside of this 3D reality. This sense of wonder has stayed with me all my life and has been the cornerstone in how I approach the different healing modalities I have been involved in for over three decades. Shapeshifters embody this magic of transformation. Throughout many cultures around the world, shapeshifting is a common theme in mythology and folklore. In its broadest sense, shapeshifting is metamorphosis, the ability to change into a different being and alter physical appearance, often through magical means. The shapeshifter additionally takes on the attributes of the being they have shifted into. For example being able to ‘see’ like an eagle or hawk. In this sense, shapeshifting is a gift. Metamorphosis and change is a huge theme in shapeshifter alchemy. Change is something both desired and abhorred by our present culture. Desired because change is the hallmark of our technological age and is seen in the rapidly shifting state of advances. Paradoxically change is abhorred for the same reason. Because of this swift tide of constant change in our environment, many hold onto elements in their life which they feel are stable and secure. Unfortunately this pushing away of change often happens in the realm of our personal growth and our relationship to our sense of self. We hold on to habits that give us a sense of having solid ground beneath our feet -even though it is a false bottom. This conditioning not only impacts our choices and how we react to everyday events,

it impacts how we see ourselves, whether as a victim or as an empowered individual. Even more insidious is the deeper etching that this conditioning has on our nervous system that creates a tug of war between what we want in our life and keeping ourselves connected to the “safe” familiar. We think that we can outsmart our conditioned responses and thoughts, but this only gets us so far. This is where shapeshifter alchemy comes in. Sustainable change comes from our cells receiving a new message with new energy for change. Transformation happens when our bodies vibrate with a different frequency of coherence, registering a physiological choice that is beyond our mind. We are creatures of habit and conditioning. However, what makes our life rich, rewarding and joyful is not security and safety, it is our ability to be present, to adapt, to transform, to be resilient from day to day no matter what life brings. We may wear many masks as we go through life. Some are so real to us that we believe them to be our true selves. We have literally shapeshifted into someone/something else and have thoughts, behaviors and feelings consistent with that ‘other’ someone. This self-deception can go undetected most of our life until finally the body speaks the truth of our unacknowledged incongruences. This shapeshifting into a less optimized version or distinctly different self than our true nature can be a life saving short - term solution. Yet the heart and body cry out, something is not right. Will we hear? When we agree to wear the mask of a personality and shapeshift ourselves into what we believe others will like so that we can be accepted and loved, or we shapeshift into someone else to literally save our own lives, we disconnect from the alignment of our true self and the empowerment that comes from being naked to our own soul.

From an empowered perspective, we use shapeshifter alchemy to reclaim the magic that is ours and to become who we truly are and in all the expressions of our being. This potent alchemy of the shapeshifter, used intentionally, allows us to go beyond conditioning and false safety and embody the magnificence of who we are. Who would you be if you lived as if you were extraordinary? What would your thoughts be? What kinds of feelings would you experience? How would you navigate your daily life? What choices would you make? What would you revolve your life around? How would you see yourself? If any of these questions lead you down a different path than the one you are currently on now, then I invite you to use shapeshifter alchemy and rediscover the magic of your life and who you are as part of Nature and the larger cosmos. Let’s use the alchemy that the shapeshifter has to offer and transform ourselves into the Wisdom Beings we are meant to be.

Wild Spring Foods to Boost Your Well Being

W

orried about what you will grow and eat this year with our water shortage? Relax! Our Great Mother Earth always provides just what we need! I have a great big grin on my face the first week of March when I see the first of our best edible wild greens poke their heads out of my desert soil. By mid-April I’ll be preparing some of my favorite dishes full of vitamins and minerals, and I didn’t have to water a thing. So here is a description of what to look for in your backyard. First up was Common Mallow or Malvas in Spanish. This is a super abundant plant in our area and even grows in disturbed soil. Mallow is high in calcium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin A and C. What’s more it tastes good! Mallow makes a tasty raw salad green and is also excellent cooked in casseroles, with eggs, or marinated in olive oil. Nobody will starve with this beauty around! Second out was Yellow Dock or Native Sorrel (Hierba de Sangre). Yup, this plant is a potent “liver and blood cleanser. ” The leaves need to be cooked and are best when young. Look for Yellow Dock in moist areas against your house, along clean ditches, streams, etc. The leaves have a mild sour flavor and are high in caloric value, calcium, potassium, and vitamin A. Third out was Dandelion or Diente de Leon. The leaves make an excellent spring tonic green salad or they can be lightly cooked. And yes, these are the same Dandelions that our fellow Americans spend millions of dollars worth of herbicides to kill each year. Dandelions are high in protein, calcium, phosphorus, and extremely high in vitamin A. Allergy sufferers take note: eat dandelion greens regularly. And remember, bitter is better! All of the above natives will love you more if you toss a little rainwater on them. They are free, local, drought resistant, nutritious, perennial, and darn good! Give a little back in the form of prayer, dance, and song. Nettles (also known as Stinging Nettles) is a common edible and medicinal plant that grows worldwide. It is consumed in soups and vegetable dishes for its savory and blood building qualities. As a tea it assists in relieving inflammations from allergies and skin disorders. It is really one of our “green superfoods” and is quite easy to cultivate in Southwest gardens. Nettles are very high in proteins, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and many trace minerals. Try this favorite of mine as an early spring tonic dish for a delicious wild dinner!

Spring Nettle Pie Always use fresh Nettle leaves; that means either growing your own or gathering them in the wild from a clean

place. Cut off the leaves from the plant where they meet the stem (wearing gloves) and then before cooking, cut off the small leaf stem. The stinging from the plant is formic acid and is nullified by cooking; it is, however, a valuable medicinal component for other ailments (such as allergies and arthritis).

Pie Shell ½ cup olive oil 1 cup quinoa flour ½ cup oat flour Pinch of salt 4 T. cold water Blend the oil into the mixed flours and salt until crumbly; add the cold water a little at a time to blend into a smooth ball. Press the pie dough into an 8 inch pie pan.

Pie Greens 4 T. olive oil 6 cups nettle leaves, lightly chopped 4 cups red chard leaves, chopped ¼ tsp salt 3 T. chopped parsley Sauté the chopped onion in olive oil at medium heat for 10 minutes until transparent in color; then add the Nettle leaves and continue cooking until they are completely wilted. Now add the chopped red Chard, salt, and fresh parsley; cover and reduce heat until all ingredients are equally cooked about 10 minutes). Now spread all the vegetables into the pie crust evenly with the rich sauce in the pan and place in the preheated oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 5 minutes before serving.

How to Feed your Body, Mind and Spirit.

I

n the field of integrative nutrition there is a principle that looks at how we nurture our body, mind and spirit. This principle is called primary and secondary foods. We know that food addresses nutritional needs and it’s also approached as a medicinal source for health prevention. As you know not all food is created equal, there are fake foods that perpetuate disease and there's real food, unadulterated food that is the source of healing. The food we consume to support our health and vitality is known as secondary food. How we feed our bodies is known as primary foods. Often, when people feel happy and fulfilled, food becomes a second thought. Think about when you were a child, playing, having fun, completely enthralled in a game, or a craft, or as an adult having fun while working on an exciting project at work or at school. Your sense of fulfillment was perhaps at its highest, where you felt so good about yourself and what you were doing so much so that time just slipped away, so much so that you would forget to eat. When we are joyfully engaged with life, that's when body, mind, and spirit are thriving all at once—this is primary foods at its best! In contrast to when you are happy, when feeling sad, dissatisfied, or lonely, people often turn to eating or other selfmedicating outlets to fill a void, to sooth and nurture the self but at the end of day the feeling doesn't go away, it may even feel worse. Here's where we can take some time to look at the primary foods of life and assess where our body-mind-spirit is asking for attention, healing, support or growth. Here's a quick and fun exercise to begin that self-dialogue. It’s called the circle of life. This quick and easy tool helps assess primary/ secondary foods and see what needs attention. On a piece of paper, draw a circle and divide the circle as you would a pie. Then assign your primary foods to each slice; for example, it can include nutrition, relationships, career, family time, physical movement, travel, social life, creative outlets, fun and play, etc. Once you have completed your circle of life with all your primary foods, assign a dot to each section. If you are feeling fulfilled in a specific area, mark a dot on that slice toward the circumference of the circle. If you are feeling unfulfilled, mark a dot towards the center of the circle on that slice. Then connect the dots and soon you’ll have a visual of your primary foods. Now take some time to reflect on what needs attention, what kind of support you’ll need in order to achieve more balance, fulfillment, or identify what may be in the way of what you desire. Keep a journal of what comes up each time you do your circle of life and create some action steps that are realistic and attainable. 5

Nutrition is more than what we eat; it's about our relationship to self, our commitments to self, our self-love, selfrespect, and self-care. When our internal landscape (relationship to self) is tended to and truly supported, then our lives and our health can truly thrive.

interrelated connection among all things may affect our internal bodies and outer skin. The information presented here is meant to develop an awareness for a potential holistic model. However, there are no rules regarding holism, except the understanding that all living things and environmental parts are all connected and work together and should not be looked at as independent or isolated pieces. How far or how whole you see holistic is guided by your own sense of holism. When trying to achieve healthy, beautiful skin, keep in mind that since our lives are so embedded with stress and connected with the environment and our lifestyle, that it is important to discover and maintain the benefits of exercise, the simplicity and beauty of enjoying nature, to be able to breathe fresh air and enjoy laughs with family and friends and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Remember that not only should your skin be maintained with supportive skincare products, it should also be intrinsically linked to ethical product manufacturing. Be mindful. Be connected. Live in harmony with yourself and all around you. Love the skin you're in, and nurture it with love.

Love the Surprising Benefits of Cupping Therapy

A

s a Holistic Health Practitioner it is always useful to have a variety of techniques and therapies in your healing tool box. One of my favorite techniques I utilize is Cupping Therapy. There are many health benefits to the patient, not to mention that five minutes of cupping is equal to thirty minutes of deep tissue massage. During a typical massage session a therapist will push into a muscle to alleviate tensions in the body. It helps to think of Cupping Therapy as the reverse of regular massage. Using suction, cupping provides a gentle pulling (rather than pushing) on the muscles for a more complete release of fascia, nerves and adhesions. It may seem new, strange or trendy, seeing as it is now under celebrity endorsement. The truth is that this technique has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Traditional Maya Medicine* (TMM) for thousands of years. It is used by both cultures to disperse wind out of the body, improve blood stagnation and promote vital Qi flow.

only a sign there has been diminished oxygen and blood supply to the tissue. Another method involves always moving or running the cups on the body. It is commonly used in Traditional Maya Medicine and is the one I prefer to use in my holistic practice. To run the cups, massage oil is first applied to the skin, allowing for the cup to glide over the muscles and release adhesions. Running the cups also greatly reduces any chances for skin discoloration. I was first introduced to Cupping Therapy in 2008 when I took a seminar on the different styles and applications for clinical use. After this seminar, I began to use the plastic stationary cups and silicone cups that could be moved on the body using oil. Although these methods had many benefits, the style never completely resonated with me. I had all but set aside Cupping Therapy from my healing practice. Little did I know that two years later I would fall in love with Cupping Therapy on a trip to Mexico. I was studying Traditional Maya Medicine from a well-known Traditional Healer named Rita Navarette The first types of cupping tools were Perez from Mexico City. She taught me the made of bamboo, clay or animal horns; art of fire cupping, or Ventosas as it is followed by the use of glass, plastic, rubber, known in TMM. I also had the honor of and silicone. In Traditional Chinese experiencing a personal fire cupping Medicine it is common to place many session from Rita and was amazed at how stationary cups on the body along various great I felt in such a short time. meridian points on the patient.

Furthermore, the Qi, blood and tissue stagnation, toxins are addition of heat has a soothing effect to the often brought to the surface of the skin nervous system. Why is this technique so resulting in a temporary skin discoloration effective? The cups are vertical or round where the cup was placed. This temporary glasses, similar to a regular drinking glass. reddish discoloration is not a bruise, but In order to create a heat vacuum, a flame is placed in the glass very rapidly (1 sec.) then

taken out and the glass is immediately placed on the body. The result is a gentle warming heat and mild suction of the skin into the glass. Oil is also used to be able to run (move) the cups on the body—getting a wide area of contracted and congested tissue to soften quickly. Let me tell you, this feels amazing! Just beneath the skin are layers of fascia or connective tissue that attach to every muscle in our body. Fascia is fibrous and sticky, helping to hold muscle tissue and organs in place. Overused muscles cause inflammation and a build-up of lactic acid to occur. When fascial tissue gets bound it creates adhesions and causes muscle soreness, joint restriction, nerve pain, and reduced blood flow and oxygen to the tissues. Cupping allows vital separation to occcur by gently pulling on multiple fascial layers to free adhesions and nerves, thus restoring oxygen to the tissues. It produces a profound vasodilation reaction, drawing blood to areas of pain while promoting metabolism within the skin tissue for better functioning of sweat and sebaceous glands. It also flushes toxins and lymph, activates synovial fluid in joints, and has a calming effect on the nervous system. Common conditions treated by Cupping Therapy include: sciatica, chronic headache and back pain, anxiety, fibromyalgia, poor circulation, nervous tension, respiratory infections and colds, arthritis, muscle and joint pain. Here are some of the benefits of Cupping Therapy:  Loosens adhesions  Improves circulation and reduces inflammation

 Releases impaired nerves  Pulls toxins to the surface of the skin The good news is that you don’t have to travel across the world to experience these great benefits. Along with Centered Spirit, a Traditional Maya Medicine practice, there are many acupuncturists in the local Santa Fe area that utilize cupping in their treatments. It is exciting and healthy to add new forms of bodywork into your lifestyle enhancement program. I hope you get a chance this year to try…and maybe fall in love with Cupping Therapy.

How to Unlock Your Full Potential with Hypnosis

I

t’s March. How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? Have you made the changes you wanted to make back on January 1, or did you start out with determination, only to revert back to the same old habits you had before? If you didn’t keep your resolutions, it is probably because you were using willpower to make yourself change. Willpower is a product of the conscious mind; but, habits are a function of the subconscious mind. In a conflict between your conscious and your subconscious, your subconscious mind will always win. Hypnosis is the best way to communicate with your subconscious. A hypnotist can talk to this part of you, and ask it why it is urging you to smoke when you don’t want to, or eat foods you know are bad for you. The hypnotist can ask your subconscious mind why you dread exercising, or why you are so afraid of ducks, or why you won’t let yourself sleep at night. In hypnosis, your conscious mind is relaxed while your subconscious mind stays alert, and can shed some light on why these habits are important to you. The hypnotist can then guide you to find other, healthier ways to meet your needs without this detrimental habit. When the subconscious is on your side, it is easy to make changes, and become the way you want to be. During hypnosis, I have had clients tell me, and also reveal to themselves, unusual reasons why they feel they need to keep these unhealthy habits. In hypnosis, they might reveal that they need to keep smoking because the only time they slow down or take a break is when they smoke a cigarette. The subconscious knows that they work too hard and need those breaks, so it urges the person to smoke by giving them intense cravings and desires to smoke. The client just notices that they really do want to smoke. They are not aware of this activity under the surface. The client can then promise to themselves, in hypnosis, that they will still take breaks after they quit smoking. With this assurance, the strong

cravings they were experiencing can be eliminated. Another client realized that the strong cravings for smoking that she was experiencing were because she and her mother used to go outside together and smoke while everyone else stayed inside. She and her mother really got close at these times. Her mother had since died, and her subconscious mind urged her to continue to smoke to keep the memory of her mother strong by giving her this strong desire to smoke. In hypnosis, she realized that she could keep the memory of her mother strong without smoking, that smoking didn’t cause the bond, that the time they spent together was the real reason they became close. One client revealed that she had to keep chewing tobacco because it made her unique among her friends. We brainstormed other ways she was unique among her friends, and with this knowledge during hypnosis, the habit was easily eliminated. If your subconscious mind feels you are safer by carrying 50 extra pounds around, you will never be able to stay slim. You might be able to lose the weight, but little by little you will gain it back. Your subconscious mind knows how many calories or fat grams are in most foods, and it can cause you to crave the things that will pack on the weight to keep you safe. Through hypnosis, you can realize that you can release the weight and still feel safe. Then the cravings go away, which makes slimming down so much easier. The purpose of an addiction is an attempt to self-medicate emotional pain. Sometimes the reason the client is having trouble making the changes they want to make is because of something that happened earlier in life. Maybe it was a long time ago, but it is still very painful to think about. In hypnosis we can heal that event so that it no longer feels painful, and then there is no reason to self-medicate. Hypnosis is beneficial in other ways, too. It can remove blocks to learning, or

excelling in sports, music, or the arts. Then the natural abilities a person has can start to shine. He or she may have blockages to sleeping, or blockages to feeling confident. In hypnosis we can discover where this blockage came from, what it is doing for them, and how to remove it. The answers are inside each of us. The future is yours to write, don’t let your subconscious keep you from living your dreams.

the same ones that comprise life as we know it, the same ones found in the soil, grass, food… and you. Hydrogen, for instance, is part of the water molecule (H2O) that constitutes over half of your body’s mass. Carbon is distributed throughout the double strands of your DNA. Nitrogen forms a vital part of your body’s proteins. And oxygen is the primary fuel for trillions of your cells. In short, you live because stars died and recycled their material as you. This might be your first encounter with the idea that you embody both the matter and the spirit of the stars, but it is an ageold relationship that predates even Babylonian records. Look at the following chart to see how the zodiac signs correlate to your body parts. You can check out the most prominent signs in your chart, like the sun, moon, or rising sign, but remember that all twelve zodiac signs live within you! That is, in fact, what the hermetic axiom “As above, so below” means—the heavens are reflected here on Earth and the Earth, in turn, reflects the heavens. Which means if you have a body region, then you have the story of the corresponding sign alive in you. For instance, if you have hands, you have the communication abilities of the Gemini, whether the Twins are your sun sign or not. Likewise for your loving Leo heart and cautious Capricorn knees. Whether or not you realize it, all of the zodiac signs’ characteristics present facets of you—facets that are yours to express if you so choose. The question, then, is which facets to express and how. How will you bring the story of the stars to life through your bodily form?

Spiritual Horoscope

March 2016 Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) Happy birthday Pisces! The total eclipse is in your sign, giving a boost of spiritual energy for your year! Meditation sparks your intuition and it’ll guide you toward effortless success and happiness, since you’ll be flowing in karmic alignment. Release people who limit your dreams or stifle your expansiveness. Also release your own negative voices that rain on your parade! Aries (March 21 – April 19) This big “super moon” eclipse increases your inspiration and hope. Just be sure to spend time forgiving people and experiences that block your flow of good. Even misty painful memories should be swept away, like mental cobwebs. Once you dream up your new reality, people come in to help you manifest your new life! Yoga, tai chi, meditation or spiritual reading reap extra benefits now.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) The more you release past issues with money challenges, the more prosperity flows! The more you forgive experiences of betrayal or broken trust, the more quickly loving, ethical people come into your life! This super moon eclipse is a rare time to cleanse painful memories and become open to new friends, love, money and joy! Pets also lift your spirits. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you deserve, because you’re worth it!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Do you know the saying, “How important is it?” Use that as your mantra in relationships. This full moon eclipse is time to let go of mental/intellectual barriers to intimacy. As your heart opens to love, you’ll feel an energy of cooperation that moves into your work life too. Maybe a huge career opportunity will come through! Doing forgiveness work about childhood and family issues makes life run even more smoothly.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22) The total eclipse empowers your spiritual growth, and helps positive thinking. Your

sense of hopefulness gives direction, purpose and focus. Meditation gives insights into work or health challenges. You’ll also know the perfect thing to say if you have to confront anyone, in whatever area of life. You’ll be firm, yet caring, and situations can resolve with more ease than expected!

rage. This month’s eclipse brings physical and mental healing since you’ll unburden your subconscious from repressed emotions that drain your energy. Talk with supportive friends who let you be real (read un-Libra-like!) as you let out the old “junk” and then fill your mind with authentic joy.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

The super moon eclipse wants you to release jealousy, envy or negativity about finances or relationships. Releasing old disappointments allows new prosperity and intimacy to flow in! When you see someone who has what you want, monetarily or emotionally, say internally, “That’s for me!” Knowing everything is within your grasp rather than held away from you empowers magnetic spiritual energy to bring those “karmic goodies”! You can have it all if you throw out the limited thinking!

The eclipse wants you to have fun! Be playful and joyous to balance the intense spiritual and personal growth you’re always striving for! Let yourself enjoy kids, pets, art, sports and love. You can start a new relationship if single. Finances need clarification and budgeting, but then you’re on your way to prosperity! Celebrate victories with friends rather than talking about what needs improving in yourself.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) This month’s eclipse opens new doors in relationships! If single, you can meet someone who is a soul mate — or, if already connected, you can clear enough mud from your eyes to see your current partner actually is a loving soul mate! Meditation helps you love and trust yourself more, so you feel almost “soul mate-ish” with yourself. Observe emotional or eating habits that put you down in the dumps and get rid of those thoughts or foods!

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Your constant smile can hide anger or negativity. Ask for guidance in dreams or meditation to show areas where you hide Evolving…in SANTA FE

people and beliefs so you’re free to create the reality you want! A big clue is if small events trigger big emotions. You’ll know there’s something bigger to discover and examine behind your reaction.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) The eclipse helps build both prosperity and self-worth! Observe your thoughts instead of reacting. Seeing subconscious patterns reveals what direction to take in terms of relationships, career and spending. You’ll know why you do what you usually do and be able to stop negative actions before you do them! Using loving affirmations with your body speeds healing and creates positive shifts.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) The Super Moon eclipse digs up family/ childhood issues that still impact you. Watch for jumping to conclusions or starting arguments — why do you push people away? Is it fear of intimacy that the eclipse is healing? Also examine your diet for food allergies that deplete your energy in subtle, yet constant ways. Appreciate people who aren’t “squeaky wheels” — quiet, reliable support you might take for granted.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) The eclipse helps you see how your thoughts and moods are mainly springing from subconscious patterns. Meditation and careful observations of your thoughts reveal how you’re a puppet to old crud! Forgive and release past circumstances, 13
