News & Tips
Spirituality and science: finding the connection Biology professor Dr. Cynthia Toth highlights the benefits of energy medicine in new book After a series of unfortunate events in her life nearly 20 years ago, biology professor Dr. Cynthia S. Toth found herself angry with God. One night, she was visited by a spiritual force that wrapped her in warmth, love and contentment, which she describes as her “spiritual awakening.” As a result of her experience, Dr. Toth gained a clear understanding of energy levels humans have in addition to their physical bodies, and the aura that permeates from them. In her book, “Science of the Soul,” Dr. Toth explains what the energy body is, how it is different from the physical body and why it has a powerful impact on the health of the individual. “It is hard for people to connect spirituality and science because most do not have in-depth understanding of scientific principles,” Dr. Toth said. Dr. Toth also presents scientific information about the positive effects of meditation and prayer on the body, why and how prayer works and how to meditate and manifest effectively using scientific principles. “It is essential that people learn to use their God-given power, and understand
that we are spiritual beings who are having a human experience,” Dr. Toth said. “We can change and heal our lives no matter the circumstances.” Dr. Toth also encourages readers to live from the soul by staying on their own spiritual paths, and to use filters in their lives prior to making decisions. For more information, visit http:// www.drcynthiatoth.com. Science of the Soul By Dr. Cynthia S. Toth ISBN: 978-1-5043-3123-4 Available in hardcover, softcover and ebook Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Balboa Press About the author Dr. Cynthia S. Toth is a writer, professional speaker and scientist. She has a doctorate degree in biology from St. John’s University, and is currently an associate professor of biology. She is also the founder of Align Balance Life Energy, Inc. She was born in Hungary, and moved with her family to the United States to escape communist influence in the 1960s.
Atlantis & Lemuria:The Lost Continents Revealed! Comes to Bookshelves Light Technology Publishing announced the release of Tom T. Moore’s latest book, ATLANTIS & LEMURIA: The Lost Continents Revealed! (ISBN 978-1-62233-037-9). Sixty thousand years ago, Earth had two more continents than it does today, each larger than what we now know as Australia. Why are they no longer there? Mr. Moore says, “One of these additional continents, Atlantis, was located in the Atlantic Ocean between North America and Africa. The other, Lemuria, was located in the Pacific Ocean near present-day Japan.” In this book, Mr. Moore states that you'll learn all about these huge continents and the great civilizations who called them home before destroying themselves in two horrific wars. He says there were several million people living on each continent for over 50,000 years. How could they just disappear? Where did the Adam and Eve story originate? Why did the Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals disappear? When did 4
the actual story of Noah and the great flood happen? Were there three destructions of Atlantis as Edgar Cayce related? What was their daily life like? What was the Crystal power the Atlanteans used? What was the "Land of Oz?" “All of these questions are answered in my book,” he states. Mr. Moore says their daily life was quite similar to that in the modern day. He compares it to the differences between living in modern day North America and living in Europe or Asia. He says that greed for power finally corrupted these two societies, which resulted in their destruction in two final battles—worse than any war in modern times. Mr. Moore is an award-winning author. His previous books have included THE GENTLE WAY series, plus FIRST CONTACT: Conversations with an ET. He’s a frequent speaker and radio/TV guest. He is also the CEO of an international film distribution company.
The 5 Gifts of the Spine
ur nervous system is responsible for the function of every joint, muscle, and organ in our body. The shape, tone, and position of our spinal cord determine every thought, feeling, and action we take. Often we think of the spine as simply the backbone, whether straight or crooked, relating it only to posture. However, our outward posture reflects the inner distortion or integrity of our spinal cord and the spinal nerves. There is far more going on with our spines than we realize. The nervous system through the spinal canal registers every word, thought, memory, and feeling we have. More importantly it registers the energy state we were in when we had the experience. According to Dr. Donny Epstein, developer of Epstein Technologies, Network Spinal Analysis, and Somato Respiratory Integration, the 5 gifts of the spine are: • Function • Emotion • Self • Behavior • Consciousness Our nervous system is the first system to develop in Emotion utero and it continues to develop into adulthood. If all of the Emotions are feelings and sensations that move through 5 gifts of the spine are fully experienced, then our potential the body in response to situations. Our emotions are key to is unlimited. the actions we do or don’t take in life. Emotions are meant to move and change, often instantaneously, so when we are Function “frozen” we are unable to feel enough to create a shift or Our spine and nervous system are essential to all the desire to take action. The challenge is that when we have vital functions of our body, automatically and unconsciously habituated ourselves to experience only a narrow range of coordinating functions such as breathing, emotions we don’t have enough energy to heart-rate, blood pressure, digestion, feel what needs to be felt in the moment. “There is far more going walking, and so much more.

position of the shoulders, how deeply we breathe, the position of our tailbone, and the position of our chest wall and heart. The gift of the sense of self through the spine is feeling confident and connecting to what it means to be ourselves, which will be then be reflected and reinforced in our posture.
Behavior Our nervous system and spine co-ordinate how we move and the actions we take either consciously or subconsciously. Strongly related to our sense of self, the actions we take profoundly reflect our experience in life. The gift of behavior through the spine impacts our habits and choices. It has to do with how we show up or don’t show up in our lives. The experience of coming from a place of freedom and flexibility is a gift of behavior.
Consciousness We are sentient beings. Through the function of our spine and nervous system, which includes our brain, we experience our life. Increasing consciousness and awareness will influence how much you live life or how much life lives you. The gift of consciousness through the spine is being self -aware, present, living joyfully and contributing to others.

Heart & Business
Mojo and Money
e go into business because we have a spark a moment that inspires us. The Mojo. If that spark is powerful enough it will ignite you into action. While anyone in business can attest, there is a moment when your inspiration evolves from a hobby to a well-established business. In the middle there is a journey. That journey will test and transform every ounce of you. Ultimately, leading to a life of love, living, laughter, and a legacy you're at peace with. I love the money because we can't talk about consciousness and business without talking about money. How we choose to express our viability in the world for an exchange of cash flow is incredibly important. It's important because sometimes we think we are "human beings on a spiritual journey when the truth is we are spiritual beings on a human journey (Stephen Covey)." Given that perspective we only have so much control with cash flow and mojo then the rest is truly up to the unseen miracles. I had a dear friend ask me what I would tell someone who works in an office all day just to pay the bills and is unhappy. Basically, no mojo and in it for the money. For starters, I'd clarify what is directly in front of this person in this moment that is creating the tipping point into unhappiness and repeat that exact step time and time again until the truth is revealed. Is it a person, a task, a project, a manager, a team, the paperwork, or their perception? Life is a mirror.
What is your present use of inspiration reflecting back to you? Are you happy? Do you feel prosperous? Do you feel strong? Do you feel peaceful? Happiness and wealth require conscious action. Money is not attracted to fragmented focus or emotion. Money is attracted to clarity. Clearly defined focus! Pair that with a dash of heart and you have mojo and money standing in front of you. Yes, this is a light-hearted approach with a topic we regard as very serious. Some words of advice; we must relax to expand and that includes generating wealth. People want to make money and, generally, they want to enjoy themselves while earning it. They attend money boot camps, seminars, conferences, and read many books. Some figure it out and others don't. Here are some quick tips for the mojo and the money: • Understand your numbers. • Get clear with your focus. • Get ready to learn. • Choose as if you have already made it to your destination. • Ask yourself: "What would someone with a million dollars do?" • Trust your intuition, cultivate your strengths, and build
your stamina. Train!
• Find a mentor and learn from their success. • Do not live by the rule "Do what you love and the money will follow."
• Live by the rule "Do what taps into your genius and the money will follow." Truly, we have everything it takes and I mean everything. According to Jean Houston "We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released." To your everyday mojo and money!

into our own authenticity, we realize the power that resides within honest self-expression. Eventually, we become more relaxed with expressing our opinions, even if they are at odds with those who are important in our life. We are able to hold our own center and integrity when people disagree with us, and are able to self-correct when we slip into unhealthy communication patterns. As we begin the journey into exercising a more authentic voice, it is vital to be compassionate with ourselves, and appreciate our small successes while understanding that the journey is about progress, not perfection. When we do healing work to support our throat center, we free ourselves to embody and live more vibrant and authentic lives.

Eating Well in Santa Fe
Eating and Living for Energy
ave you noticed how certain foods feel energy promoting where as others feel like they are robbing you of your vitality? Here's an easy way to play detective and discover which foods are providing you with energy. Commit to capturing what you eat (in detail) and how you feel 20 minutes after each meal, physically, emotionally and energetically. Journal for at least five days and you'll begin to identify the food culprits. Each day the choices you make regarding your lifestyle and the foods you eat will either enhance your health, and longevity or compromise it. Here are some effective ways to enhance your energy and improve your health: Food combination: Ensuring that 50% of your meal includes a variety of vegetables, 40% of a good source of protein (animal-based or plant-based) and 10% a healthy source of fat, will provide you with a good source of fiber to support your digestion and gentle detoxification. Thus, you'll experience increased energy and feel satisfied for longer periods of time. It is important to note that specific nutritional needs are based on your bioindividuality. Supplements: Like vitamin D, SAMe (SAdenosyl-L-Methionine), derived from an amino acid and B-complex, a balanced omega oil combination, and herbs like St. John’s Wort have all been shown to improve mood, energy and a sense of vitality. These supplements are especially helpful during the long winter months and when experiencing low levels of depression or experiencing stress. Essential Oils: Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Blood Orange, Geranium, Eucalyptus Lemon, Cinnamon Bark are some of the many essential oils that support energy and your immune system. Please remember that not all essential oils are created equal, look for 100% derived oils from the bark, root, flower, stem or resin, there should be no carrier oils in 100% essences. Protein smoothies: For the “go-go” person check out the June and July Evolving Santa Fe issues or visit Vitality With Val’s website for some tasty and energy promoting smoothies and vegetable juice recipes. It’s all about knowing how to combine vegetables, fruits, fats and a good source protein powder to make a smoothie that will keep you feeling satisfied for at least four hours. Hydration: One must consume at least half of your weight in ounces of water. So if you weigh 130lbs then you must consume at least 65oz of water per day, more if you are traveling or live in a high altitude place. Here are five ways to enhance hydration on a cellular level; you can add freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice, or minced ginger, or sliced cucumbers and mint leaves, or add a pinch of Celtic sea salt or a couple of drops of chloroxygen. Lifestyle: Proper sleep benefits your body with improved memory, metabolism, heart health and decreases stress eating during the day. Feeling rested supports our ability to respond to life rather than react. Fitness enhances your metabolism and stamina, maintains insulin response, it’s a great stress management outlet and supports healthy

The Wormhole Experience
ere’s the thing: If you are reading this article, you are likely someone who is an explorer, open to new ideas, the infinite nature of our existence, and you are seeking a more profound spiritual connection. As spiritual explorers, we often become fascinated with the various spiritual tools available to us. We learn about and interact with crystals, spirit guides, angels, herbs, pendulums, tarot cards, meditative music…the list goes on. Perhaps you utilize these tools in environments that are in juxtaposition to exploration and then witness the energetic shift. In our journey today however, we will go a level deeper than these tools, as wonderful and fun and interesting as they may be. As an explorer, you weave your way through a tremendous amount of energy each day. Here on this planet, we physically experience gravity, density and the energy of the elements. And that is life. That is earthly existence, neutral in its nature, yet powerful in its forces. Today’s journey is about being in energetic alignment with our self, and navigating earthly forces and experiences from this place of strength and truth. So, let’s begin by peering through the wormhole; the bridge between space-time that connects you to your divine and the energy of alignment. Foremost, one indicator of misalignment is when we can use words to describe our situation, and it is typically
words like frustrated, stressed, stuck, and drained. Such words and the related feelings are the indicators of misalignment. There is no doubt that in our current collective consciousness the state of misalignment is more readily apparent, but is it really more prevalent? I invite you to personally challenge this notion in your consciousness. Step aside from what mainstream society and media is pointing toward and tune into your inner compass. You are a brilliant individual in an amazing collective of beings on an incredibly diverse blue orb in the middle of an expansive universe beyond your imagination. How dare you think you cannot shift into energetic alignment! So, let’s leave misalignment behind, for it will collapse our energetic wormholes. Energetic alignment occurs when we not only realize our divine connection, but we experience it. The energy of empowerment and truth arise as we match the frequency of our true nature. We sense love, bliss and oneness simultaneously and to such a degree that it is difficult if not impossible to explain the experience in words. How very interesting that most native songs do not translate into the English language, because words fall short of the experience! Immersing in nature supports our alignment because it reminds us of life, resets us in the understanding of cycles, and connects us with the spirit of exploration. But as you step outside, you
Evolving…in SANTA FE
are not simply getting fresh air, feeling the sun on your skin, or watching the bird fly. You are the air, the sun, and the bird. Music triggers our imagination, ignites our creativity, and transforms us. But, you are not just listening to a song, singing a song, or dancing to the song. You are the melody, the rhythm, the song itself. This is not just movement; this is a dance, a flow. And it is not outside of you, it is you. You are the movement, the dance and the flow. You are the experience. Let’s consider yet another angle of being in energetic alignment. If you call to an angel or spirit guide and ask for support, protection, or confidence, you are calling forth energetic alignment. A true “angel” or “guide,” another unique expression of the universe, will hold that space for you until you realize there is no separation between you and them. There are no words to describe them, no names, and no characteristics. You become the angel. You become the guide, and they become you. The beings that are truly connected to the energy of alignment, which connects you to source, hold space for you to be the energy of support, protection, or confidence. In this way, you know yourself as supported and supportive, protected and protective, confident for yourself and others. This is inner peace. So the idea here, the wormhole experience if you will, is that whatever spiritual tool you are utilizing or experiencing, you become the living realization of it. It is not something outside of you, rather part of your true energetic alignment. And if any tool or being is not in complimentary energetic frequency with you, it becomes no longer needed, no longer consulted, yet a glorious and valuable partner (albeit shortterm) on your journey. That’s another really cool thing about energetic alignment: Releasing what isn’t a
match becomes effortless as you are more and more in alignment – another indicator! Practically speaking, how does one step into the wormhole of alignment and trust it not to collapse? How does one come into energetic alignment with oneself and maintain that space-time connection? Consider yourself the creator. Alignment strengthens the wormhole, misalignment collapses it. The wormhole is a vast tunnel of energy just waiting for you to dance through it, with it. Consider your favorite spiritual tool, close your eyes, and imagine that you are it. Become one with it, become it. Describe it with words until words fall short. Be sure to give yourself whatever space and time is needed with this energy. This is the energy that strengthens your wormhole and propels you on a luscious adventure through space-time. It is valuable to strengthen your familiarity to it. Next, repeat with another tool, another angel or guide, and so on. What’s happening here!? Everyone is creating and existing in a place of energetic alignment. Individuals are shifting. The collective consciousness is shifting. The earth is shifting. Space-time is becoming one as each wormhole explodes with the energy of alignment to source. Words…they no longer…describe.
“The wormhole is a vast tunnel of energy just waiting for you to dance through it, with it.”

Accepting and Loving All Our Parts in the Journey Toward Spiritual Growth “When we practice Radical Acceptance, we begin with the fears and wounds of our own life and discover that our heart of compassion widens endlessly. In holding ourselves with compassion we become free to love this living world.”
he focus of many spiritual and contemplative traditions is to help their followers move away from attachments to the ego and live in higher or more loving states of consciousness, which has been called by many names throughout the world. In Buddhism it is referred to as No-Self; Hinduism calls it Atman; and Christians address it as the God Seed, Holy Spirit, or the Christ Spirit within. Psychological disciplines also speak of this state of consciousness and have called it the Transpersonal Self or merely Self. Regardless of the name we give to it, this state of being is described with similar qualities by the various traditions. It is a state in which we experience love, compassion, understanding, peace, curiosity, non-judgment, confidence, clarity, creativity, and greater connection toward ourselves, others, the world, and that which we hold sacred. On the other hand, the ego is described in a very different way. For many of us, it is what we experience as our identity. It consists of what we have come to understand as our personality, as well as
the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and about the larger world. As such, the ego houses our fears, insecurities, and limiting beliefs. It houses the lessons and messages we learned from family, friends, and the larger cultures of which we are a part. Oftentimes, it is our attachment to these experiences, stories, and beliefs that “ keep us from living our lives in more loving and expanded ways. In other words, when believe in our limitations as experienced through the ego we keep ourselves from experiencing greater joy, intimacy, and expansiveness available to us when we see through the eyes of the spiritual Self. Unfortunately, many of us try to live more fully in our spiritual Self by denying, avoiding, or somehow caging up our ego. In psychological language, we repress those parts of us we don’t like or that cause us pain. The problem with this approach is that denying a part of our experience doesn’t necessarily make it go away. Alternatively, and as so beautifully stated
by Tara Brach, accepting and loving all the parts of us leads to greater love and compassion for ourselves. In other words, it leads us to more easily access our spiritual Self and all of its wonderful qualities. A relatively newer form of psychotherapy, called Internal Family Systems (IFS), also recognizes the importance of loving and accepting all the different parts that make up who we are: the parts we like as well as the parts we want to avoid or deny. IFS was developed by Richard Schwartz and recognizes that when we live a greater part of our lives from the spiritual Self, we are able to live a more fulfilled and authentic life and be of greater service to others. A unique feature of IFS is that it provides activities that guide us in establishing a relationship between the various parts of our ego and the spiritual Self. In the process, the qualities of the spiritual Self can help the ego to experience healing and

transformation. In other words, IFS helps a person to become Self-led, a state in which the spiritual Self is leading your perceptions and experiences instead of being led by elements of the ego. It does this by bringing love and acceptance to all parts of you, which in turn can help you to bring more love and compassion to yourself and others. For more information on how IFS can help you on your personal or spiritual journey, check out the workshop entitled, “Living From the Spiritual Self” listed on the Events page.

ulia Cameron is an internationallyacclaimed writer and self-proclaimed “creativity expert.” She is indeed both. Her best selling book, The Artist’s Way, one of the 40 she has written to date and published in 1992, has sold more than four million copies. The Artist’s Way landed in my hands in what I can only describe as a serendipitous manner. I was vacationing on the Maya Rivera in 2008 and standing in our rented condo’s little office waiting to ask a question. The clerk was on a long-winded call and I started gazing around. I discovered a shelf of left-behind books and saw The Artist’s Way. I lobbed it down and flipped through its dog-eared, waterstained pages. As a writer, the book immediately piqued my interest. Little did I know at the time that four years later I would move to Santa Fe, Julia’s home, attend one her workshops, and interview her for this issue of Evolving Magazine; serendipitous, fate, or law of attraction? I think it was all of the above. I met with Julia at a Santa Fe coffee haunt for our chat.
sharing your personal life and its dark moments? JC: Are you thinking in my memoir Floor Sample? Well, I felt I was on a pedestal as a teacher, and people started thinking of me as “Saint Julia,” which was not the way I experienced myself. I wanted to step off the pedestal and step into plain view and give people an authentic experience of what the journey has been like. When I wrote Floor Sample, I decided I was going to be authentically autobiographical, which meant including my divorce and my nervous breakdowns. I was determined to paint a true picture. Interestingly enough, the book was loved by readers but was hated by critics who were angry that I had demystified the persona.
GM: That’s an excellent exercise to determining ones purpose in life, because many people like myself believe there is a purpose to our lives and we are in search of it. JC: Yes, I think so too. GM: Given the October theme for Evolving Magazine is the law of attraction and energy, do have any thoughts on either subject?

The energy alters the cell membrane permeability and is get shocked? absorbed by the mitochondria. The Our intercellular health, down to the mitochondrial level, determines how healthy mitochondria are the "Powerhouses" of the cells, producing ATP that is needed for every we are and how much energy or ATP our cell to be healthy.

that had been shut off and restored her taste and smell. Another amazing use of Erchonia energy is to assist the body to “reset” from the negative effects of electrical pollution or "dirty electricity." The laser frequencies can produce amazing benefits for the body, but the wrong frequencies or electrical signals can devastate it. If you are neurologically switched your energy is basically running backwards. If the energy coming from your wall outlet was running backwards it wouldn't produce much power or electricity. Frequencies from smart meters, Wi-Fi's, cell phones and towers, and electrical appliances are just few of the hidden stressors that affect the body’s electrical system. Any named disease, and especially ones involving the neurological system such as ADHD, create higher sensitivities to electrical pollution. It’s amazing to see how often electricity has a detrimental effect on the body. I frequently test homes and businesses of people who are sick and/or don't feel well and find the electricity has a negative effect on their bodies. Have you ever heard of “Schumann Resonances,” or “Earthing?” The earth has natural frequencies that help rebalance your body, reduce inflammation and help neutralize the negative effects of dirty electricity (www.earthing.com). Negative emotions also have a devastating effect on the body. The emotions are stored as a program in your subconscious and also your cellular matrix (fascia system). Every emotion, including shocks, surprises, and traumas, are stored in the body. These programs help make up our personality and how we respond and react to stimulus. They can also have a devastating effect on the body, even altering the musculoskeletal system. Further, each organ (i.e., liver, kidney, gallbladder) has an invisible energetic pathway called the meridian associated with it. If you have long-standing negative emotion, it can affect the performance of the 12
specific organ. For instance, the liver is associated with anger and rage. If you have experienced a lot of anger you can create an imbalance in the liver meridian, which weakens specific muscles corresponding to the meridian. The liver is most energetically active between the hours of 1-3 a.m., and you will likely have sleeping issues during this time until you rebalance the liver. Fear affects the kidneys and can set you up for a lifetime of lower back issues because the kidney meridian controls the primary stabilizing muscles of the pelvis, which are the psoas and illiacus. If a client comes in with a chronic lower back issue, the kidney meridian and corresponding muscles are usually what I address first. Negative emotions use up a lot of minerals trying to regulate our body's pH. and keep it alkaline. With the Erchonia cold laser we can reprogram those negative emotions and belief systems very quickly from the subconscious and cellular matrix. So, how is your energy level and emotional state? Are you feeling the effects of the above-mentioned stressors?
