Towards A Radiantly Healthy Planet By Mark Sheehan

First, a short postcard from Denmark – my fifth visit. What I see: everyone on bikes – from ages 2 to 92; bike lanes on all major streets in Copenhagen with thousands of people using them; bike paths way out in the country with people peddling miles between small towns; and trains that go all over the country, even between tiny villages. What I don’t see: homeless people, cops or police cars, chemtrails, billboards, or telephone poles (all utilities are underground). How it feels: cold, but the people are energetic and focused; the whole society feels grounded and sane. Knowing so much about what is wrong with our polluted planet can be depressing. Let’s face it – you can’t have “radiant health” if you’re radioactive! For the latest reports on radiation levels, please visit It’s long and grim, but if you read it you can start searching for solutions (and here’s a hint – it’s not South America). Wanting to read good news for a change, I downloaded Abundance to my Kindle. The authors are inventor/entrepreneur Peter Diamandis and visionary journalist Steven Kotler. They set out to understand how abundance can be created all over the earth. A medical doctor with a lifelong interest in space flight, Diamandis came up with the idea and found a donor for a $10 million prize for whoever could launch a space vehicle. After that success, he formed a group to fund prizes for development in health and the environment— the X Prizes. Along with famed futurist Ray Kurzweil, he formed Singularity University, a 10-week training program for wizards who want to work towards solving global problems using

the full range of technology. The book began by defining the term abundance, along with a pyramid for achieving our highest goals. At the base of the pyramid are clean air, food, water, and shelter. The next level involves work, communication, and income. At the top of the pyramid are freedom and fulfillment. Central to these visionary technologies is their perspective on exponential change. Think of the evolution of energy from fire to solar, or how the invention of the wheel led to transportation. To understand the concept of exponential growth, consider that if you take 30 meter-long paces you end up about 30 yards away, but if you could take “exponential” paces (e.g., 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.), you could end up going around the earth many times. My first “portable” computer was a 28-pound Osborne; at 1/100th the weight, my iPhone is 10,000 times faster, has 100,000 times the memory, and half a million apps. The book explains what is already happening as people in the developing world combine cell phones with microfinance with web-based databases to make dramatic strides towards selfreliance and sustainable growth. The authors give

examples of leading innovators like Craig Venter who sequenced the human genome in 2001. It cost him $100 million, about 7.5 percent of what the government spent to do the same thing. Ten years later, you can derive the same information for about $1,000! We have extraordinary geniuses amongst us, but there is genius in all of us. Millions of us can work collaboratively to create what no individual could ever do. Wikipedia, for example, took 100 million hours to create. In the U.S., we spend 200 billion hours watching television and who knows how many hours playing video games. Think of the possibilities! Women in the developing world spend a huge amount of their time hauling water. Seeing this, Peter Thum and Jonathan Greenblatt created Ethos Water, a premium brand that donates a portion of its proceeds to help children get clean water. A Danish team came up with a straw that filters water. With 440 patents, Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, created a potable water purifier called Slingshot that can now purify 250 gallons of water a day using as much energy as a hair dryer. Of the dozens of cool inventions, my favorite is Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC), a smartphone size device that does an entire health assessment. This book will inspire you and get you thinking in positive ways about how we can work together towards creating our future. For more information online, visit and Mark Sheehan is traveling with his wife, the Danish healer, Sonja Aclon. They will return to Maui in the fall.

Radiant Financial Health

Sometime in the past month a brilliant thought flashed in my mind. It was a simple solution to our nation’s financial woes that could solve our “crisis” and debt problems easily and quickly. As empowered by the U.S. Constitution, Congress could create the Bank of the United States, with branches established in every post office around the country, instantly making them a vital part of every community again. Collecting all the tax dollars, the Bank of the U.S. could function in a dual role to the established Federal Reserve, and operate according to the exact same rules. The big exception is that all of the profits would be held in the public trust. All interest earned on loans would benefit the public good. Simple and creative, this solution wouldn’t cost the taxpayers a dime. The only people furious would be the bankers who would be one-upped at their own con game. - Eric T. Richter, publisher

Seven Key Elements Drive Vibrant Health

By Dr. David Klein Vibrant health is our birthright! The human mind-body is a self-preserving, self-cleansing, self-regulating, self-healing and self-renewing marvel. If all of our natural biological needs are met, we can attain and maintain perfect health attended by an extraordinary sense of vibrant wellness. Our prime needs are: fresh air, pure water, rest, sleep, cleanliness, a health promoting diet of vegan whole foods (of which at least 75 percent are raw), comfortable temperature, sunshine, pleasant environment, vigorous activity, recreation, constructive work, creative expression, mental-emotional poise and mastery, mind-body-spiritual awareness, self-love and lovingly supportive social relationships. Disease processes and symptoms are the body’s response to improper living practices, especially unnatural dietary indiscretions and excessive lifestyle stresses. Unhealthful lifestyle choices bring about enervation and toxemia from overloads of decomposing foods, chemicals and metabolic wastes. This results in systemic malfunction and illness. When we remove all of the causes of disease and implement healthful living practices, the mind-body is enabled to create vibrant health. Here are seven key practices to embrace on your health path: ATTITUDE Don’t accept enervating stress and disease. Love and take the best care of yourself, claiming your right to vibrant wellness. Think constructive, healthful thoughts and be passionate about your health process! NATURAL LIFESTYLE Design a new healthful lifestyle to keep your vital energy strong. Set up a nurturing, peaceful environment in your home for cultivating serenity and fitness. Create a life that includes constructive, fulfilling activities and creative work and play. SLEEP The result of overworking and undersleeping is chronic fatigue, emotional imbalance, disease and rapid aging. Sleep is the “great restorer.” It recharges our nerve energy “batteries” so that we can function optimally. For vibrant vitality, sleep more. EXERCISE The body will not improve itself unless it is given a reason to do so. At a safe, comfortable pace, exercise all of your muscles and get into good aerobic shape, preferably under the sun’s life-giving rays. COMPLETE DETOXIFICATION & INTERNAL PURITY Via healthful living, the body will be able to completely detoxify and rejuvenate on its own. Products are totally unnecessary. It is especially important to omit clogging, low-nutrient, starchy, sugary and fatty processed foods. Drink several glasses of purified water and/or juice and fruit smoothies (made with only fresh fruits and greens) every day. Exercise daily to aid detoxification and maintain a clean body, inside and out. NUTRITIOUS PLANT-BASED DIET Our bodies are designed to function optimally on a vegan diet of predominantly organically-grown raw fruits and vegetables, with minimal amounts of nuts and seeds (preferably germinated). Cooked foods are devitalized; they have low vibration and cannot be completely digested. Fresh raw foods, especially fruits, have the highest vibration. They are purifying, extraordinarily nutritious, most energizing and regenerative. When eaten in proper combinations and sequences, they digest perfectly. Follow your senses and enjoy the bounty of Hawaii’s fruits! EXPRESSION Feel good about your whole self. Smile, laugh and express your vibe with others who share your passion for vibrant health, and go for it all! Dr. David Klein is a hygienic doctor with a Ph.D. in Natural Health and Healing. He directs the Colitis & Crohn’s Health Recovery Center, located in Haiku, Maui. Leading people to health independence via their natural selfhealing powers is Dr. Klein’s passion.

Getting Out Of The Way So Your Light Can Shine By Liah Howard The cosmos can surprise us with moments that change us forever. One of these moments happened in my life over 30 years ago, and its radiance is still lighting my path today. We are all able to have these moments of grace. The key is being able to get out of the way so that the light can shine into and through us completely. Here’s how it happened for me. It was an early fall morning in Stone Mountain, Georgia. I awoke before dawn to escape the noise and busyness of my relatives’ house. My daily routine, then as now, included a morning walk and meditation, so I slipped outside and began walking. I walked for over an hour on wooded streets and rolling hills until I discovered a beautiful lake with a few homes nestled around it. I headed down to a wooden dock where I sat in my yoga pose, legs crossed and hands open on my knees, facing east as the sun peeked over the trees. I closed my eyes and began the practice I’d been doing for a couple years: using a deep exhale to empty the personal self, inhaling and filling up with God’s presence as light, and breathing that light all the way down to my toes. Suddenly, all noise stopped. A stillness pervaded my being. Then whoosh! I was lifted up and out of my body to a realm of light. My personal self dissolved into this golden-white shimmering light. The light and I were one; pulsing, expansive light with no beginning or end. Time stopped.

Then my body fell over and hit the dock hard. That’s when I realized something amazing had occurred. Before I opened my eyes, I lay there and felt the light permeating my being. Then, as if by magic, I felt my body reappear. I gently opened my eyes, but I was not ready for what I saw. Everything was a radiant light. There was no lake and no trees. Then stroke by stroke, the way an artist paints, all the sights around me returned. My physical reality returned, but I was

never to be the same, for I had glimpsed the truth of my being. I am light! A deep peace filled my heart and a broad smile graced my face. My body was buzzing with energy. I felt more alive than I ever had. I looked around and could see the auric glow around the trees and feel the pulse of life in all. I was connected to my cosmic source and it was real! My mind swirled with this new awareness. I had by the grace of the divine tapped into the truest essence of my being. I walked back home and sat at the table with everyone, unable to eat breakfast. I felt like I was existing in two worlds at once. This light has been a constant gift guiding me to my most radiant self, helping me in my hardest moments. You too can have this awareness if you allow yourself to get out of the way. Find a practice that helps you let go of your attachments to a personal self, and to what you think you know. The key ingredient is a deep and heartfelt desire to know God, the cosmos, or your true nature. It is the energy of love in the heart that opens the window to this infinite and life-changing radiant light.

Glowing Skin From The Inside Out

By Smita Khatri For Samana Benedetti, owner of Spa Luna at Maui Mall, proper skin care is about more than just the products you use on your body; it’s a lifestyle. According to Benedetti, what you put in your body is just as important as what you put on your body. For external skin care, Benedetti warns against using soap or harsh products on your face, and recommends the following: (1) use vitamin C concentrate to protect your skin from the sun – it deflects the sun’s radiation better than sunscreen; (2) use coconut oil on every part of the body; and (3) get a microdermabrasion, pumpkin peel, and face toning treatment. Microdermabrasion is very effective for removing dead skin cells and treating acne, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, scar tissue, stretch marks, and more. Benedetti feels strongly that what you put in your body impacts your skin. She suggests the following nutrition habits for more radiant skin: (1) eat foods that give you more energy and cut out foods that make you sleepy; (2) eat clean proteins, such as quinoa; (3) don’t eat meats that have been pumped with hormones; (4) eat live, fresh foods that were recently picked off the tree or from the ground; and (5) eat food containing fats such as avocados, salmon, nuts, seeds, and coconut oil. Lastly, exercise and stress reduction are vital. Daily practices that get your heartbeat going, calm your mind, bring you back into your body, and focus your attention on appreciation and gratitude are essential to maintaining radiant skin. So pick a papaya off the tree, take a walk, and write down three things you’re grateful for – your skin will thank you for it.

Our Health Is Our Most Precious Gift By Kutira Décosterd

We all want radiant health; yet we often take it for granted, especially in our younger years. As the years pass, we become aware that our bodies are not as durable and replaceable as we would like. As you read these words, I invite you to stop for a moment, take a deep breath, close your eyes and look inside. Take a scan of your physical body and emotional state of being, and then listen. Ask yourself these questions: “Am I as fit and healthy as I could be?” “Am I happy with how I am living my life right now?” When we allow our bodies to have a voice and allow our hearts to listen, we can make wise decisions that promote radiant health, inside and outside. Our innate wisdom guides us towards having a healthy body and living a happy life. There comes a time in our lives when we begin to acknowledge that our health is our most precious gift. All of the blessings of life – from material wealth to relationships – are dependent upon our health. A beautiful Taoist quote begins: “When the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten.” We often have to create a wake up call, where we become uncomfortable in our body through pain, sickness, obesity or allergies. Inspired by my own wake up call and the desire to live a more healthy and balanced life, I embarked on a journey to discover new ways of taking care of my body. During my journey, I morphed my body and my mind, rapidly reducing my weight by 40 pounds with the amazing support of a hormone (HCG) that helped me burn fat and reset my body’s metabolism. I share my complete story in my book The Lightness of Body and Being. I have been very good at taking care of Mother Earth, by sustaining her with conscious environmental practices and living off the grid without county water for more than 20 years. At the Maui Eco Retreat, I created sustainable housing using bamboo and organic gardens free of GMO and pesticides. What has been more challenging for me is taking care of my own body. I was always busy with the land. Now I realize that taking care of my body is no less important than taking care of Mother Earth. The quality of our food affects both our physical bodies and the land.

Do you know how much our food is overproduced, lacking vital nutrients and contaminated with GMO? This is a wake up call for us all to make conscious choices in how we eat and treat our soil. Obesity and sustainability are now the number one challenges in our world. Our global community can only solve these with an awakened consciousness. Bhutan’s legal code states: “If the government cannot create happiness for its people, then there is no purpose for government to exist.” It is vital that we demand regulations from our government to protect our environment and our right for clean, healthy, and nutrient rich foods. Let your voice be heard for our Earth! Radiant health starts with a radiant earth. Only with a healthy environment that nurtures us with good water, air and soil can we celebrate our radiant selves. Kutira Décosterd has been creating an ecologically sustainable lifestyle and educational eco retreat center in Maui. She brings her 30 years of wisdom and experience as an author, spiritual teacher, environmental activist, artist, musician and social entrepreneur to the global community.

We All Deserve Radiant Health By Rev. Shelley St John, R.N. As human beings, we need to continuously return to balance. The body is inundated with harmful toxins from internal and external sources. In this modern world, we are exposed to external toxins such as pesticides, industrial pollutants, and harsh chemicals from household products and personal care products such as shampoo, toothpaste, and deodorant. These toxins make their way into our air, water, and food, then enter the body and take residence in our organs and tissues. Processed foods, laden with preservatives, lack natural enzymes and nutrients that aid digestion, allowing undigested food to ferment in the intestines and colon and become toxic. To rid itself of the toxic burdens, the body uses the seven organs of elimination. Due to daily increasing numbers of toxins, the systems of elimination get overwhelmed and do not always do their job as smoothly as we would like. Take an assessment now and ask yourself, “which is my priority: physical, mental, emotional or spiritual well being?” If you chose physical well being, then eat organic, non-GMO foods and purchase organic household and personal products. Begin an exercise program, or step up the program you currently follow. If you currently exercise two days per week, then step it up to four or five days, and meet a buddy at the local gym or nearby park. This will support oxygenation and increase circulation. Also, begin a colon (and herbal) cleanse. When warm, purified water enters the colon, the portal

Revs. Shelley and Kedar St. John vein in the right corner of the colon gently sends the water up into the liver, to the kidneys, to the lymph and circulates through the whole body. This process supports the body to eliminate parasites and toxic waste buildup. How can we absorb our organic food, supplements, and other sources of nutrition if our colon contains thirty pounds of waste matter? The happiness hormone, serotonin, is released during colon therapy. In addition, it activates intuitive and psychic gifts, giving us better guidance to make choices and make our

dreams come true. Whether cleansing, fasting, taking herbs, increasing our exercise and water intake, or alkalizing the body, we are going to feel lighter, cleaner, happier, more free and in love with ourselves. Here at the Temple of Peace, I work with open-closed colon therapy systems, scalar lasers, bemer technology, aromatherapy, reiki, and access bar (32 points on the head for healing and balancing). Three months ago my husband, Rev. Kedar, and I noticed that we had some middle age aches and pains, as well as some excess weight we wanted to release in the belly and butt. We did some fasting and then changed to a plant-based diet. We also stepped up our yoga and meditation practice. There is a saying, “the proof is in the pudding.” The aches and pains went away and the weight dropped. Take this opportunity to look inside yourself and pinpoint what is screaming out (or softly whispering) for change. When you shift one area of your life, then other areas will start to change too. We all deserve radiant health. Shifting the internal and external factors will help uplift the community, our country, and our planet. Rev. Shelley St John, R.N., is a certified colontherapist, instructor, gifted intuitive healer, and co-creator of Temple of Peace, located at 575 Haiku Road in Haiku, Maui. This international spiritual center features state-of-the-art colontherapy cleansing, spa, and a metaphysical store. Contact Shelley at 808.575.5220, shelleystjohn@, or visit

Chiropractic Helps The Body Heal Itself By Anthony Jayswal, D.C. I would love an opportunity to explain chiropractic the way I believe the founder of our profession, D.D. Palmer, believed it should be practiced today. I think it’s important because the general public has been very confused by all of the dramatically different philosophies chiropractors espouse. The human body is created with a brain and nervous system. If functioning at 100 percent, the body can heal itself if the brain stays connected to the body via the nervous system. By staying connected, the body can maintain ease, which in the words of our founder D.D. Palmer, is the absence of dis-ease. A common problem is subluxation. A subluxation is a misalignment of two spinal bones, putting pressure on the spinal nerve. It only takes the equivalent of the weight of a dime to put pressure on that sensitive spinal nerve and block up to 60 percent of the signal coming from the brain. In addition, the spinal nerve only has a pain receptor in the middle of the nerve, making it hard to detect a subluxation because there is no pain associated with it. How do you get subluxation? Unfortunately, it’s very easy to get and rarely ever diagnosed by anyone other than a chiropractor. Any physical, mental or chemical stress, especially a se-

Colitis & Crohn’s Health Recovery Center

ries of them, can easily lead to a subluxation. You can get it at any age. In fact, the birthing process itself can lead to significant spinal trauma and subluxation that never gets detected, and then you fall down an average of 5,000 times before you are 5 years old! Not a good start for a developing spine and nervous system! What does a subluxation mean to the body? If you are only getting 40 percent or less of a signal from the brain out through a spinal nerve, there is no way your body can operate properly or heal itself. Your brain is trying to get the healing signal out, but it cannot because of the nerve interference. What is the answer? Remove the nerve interference, and allow the body to heal itself again. How do you remove the nerve interference? Get a series of frequent chiropractic adjustments designed to remove subluxation, proportionate to the amount of time the subluxation has been

in the body. The longer it has been in the body, the more it can degenerate, become more severe, and take longer to heal. If a subluxation persists and degenerates long enough, your spine can actually fuse itself together and you will be left with a diminished nerve supply. By removing nerve interference and adjusting all subluxations in the spine, a chiropractor has the ability to facilitate the patient’s own body healing itself from a range of sicknesses and diseases that would astonish most people. I became a chiropractor because natural chiropractic care helped my body completely heal itself from chronic asthma, headaches, bronchitis, and a compromised immune system from long term antibiotic poisoning. My hope for all of my community and humanity is that they can receive this message and get checked for subluxation. The power that made the body can indeed heal the body – no prescription necessary!

Make Conscious Choices To Reduce Your Exposure To Electromagnetic Radiation By Debra Greene, Ph.D. Cell phones, WiFi, and smart grids…oh my! We live in a wireless world where we are swimming in electromagnetic frequencies of all varieties. Because of the explosion in our use of electronic devices, electromagnetic radiation increased 1,000,000,000,000,000 times from 2003 to 2007. There are several things you need to know to safely use wireless devices. Because of the varieties of frequencies and how they interact with each other, the issue is complex. Wireless devices like cordless phones, cell phones, computer Wifi, baby monitors, and smart meters have three aspects that make them particularly dangerous to human health. First, they emit low level electromagnetic radiation (EMR) because they run on electricity. Second, they also emit high level radio frequency radiation (RFR) because they transmit wirelessly. Some known effects of RFR include increased cancer risks and damage to DNA and genes. Third, most of these devices emit a pulsed microwave signal. Pulsed radiation can cause breaches in the blood-brain barrier and is especially damaging to neurotransmitters, among other things. All three of these factors combined create what I call a “triple whammy” assault on the body-mind system. Some things you can do to reduce the impact of electromagnetic frequencies on your health include:

Paulo’s Perspective By Paul O’Brien

Hi Paulo, I’ve been in an on-again, offagain relationship with John for about 10 years, sometimes with long periods of time apart (in other relationships). I don’t seem to be able to get over him and we always end up back in each other’s lives. A few months ago we “broke up” again, but have continued to stay friends (and, yes, we are intimate). He has some family issues going on, so I wanat to be there for him, as I know he needs someone right now. He also admits that he has commitment issues. My question is this: Is our relationship ever going to move forward or should I move on and find someone else? I love him very much, but I am tired of waiting on him. I keep thinking that in the long run it’ll be worth it …or will it? -Pamela, 40-50, Maui Meadows The real question is not whether it will be worth it, but whether it is worth it now. You have a “friends‑with‑benefits” relationship that must be pretty good, considering that you both keep coming back! Ask yourself why you feel like this form needs to change. If it really does, talk to John about how you can both feel more

satisfied, without bringing the word ‘commitment’ into the question at all. If you like what you have going on, see if you can let go of externally imposed ideas of what a relationship should look like, and focus on enjoying what you already have. You mentioned you love him, you are intimate physically and you want to be there for him emotionally. These sound like hallmarks of a great relationship to me! To some extent all couples ‘settle’ … it’s called settling down, as in being relaxed with someone, which is the basis for emotional intimacy. You two have a lot of intimacy and have been honest with each other for a long time. You have every right to enjoy yourselves. It’s important you make your own decision about what sort of relationship you want. Keep in mind that the romantic

October/November, 2012

paradigm, the concept that you marry one perfect ‘soulmate’ and live happily ever after, has only ruled the way people seek intimacy for 200 years. Before that, it was all an arrangement ‑ specifically, arranged marriage, still the case in many cultures. The biggest problem with arranged marriage is that women have had no ability to negotiate for themselves. Friends‑with‑ benefits is an arrangement too, but you have equal say regarding terms. Make the most of this power and make it a great arrangement for yourself! Ask for what you want, just avoid all‑or‑nothing demands. Don’t let the perfect (your fantasy) become the enemy of the good (the intimacy you enjoy). As Ken Keyes pointed out in his groundbreaking book, A Conscious Person’s Guide to Relationships, our ability to sustain intimacy is limited by our tendency to dictate the form that the relationship must take. We are much happier when we let the form adapt to the flow. Place the issue of what form you might prefer below more important factors – like how well you communicate, enjoy each other’s company, solve problems, resolve conflicts. Focus on and cultivate these blessings and you will co‑create something marvelous, something worth living for – no matter what its form … so, enjoy!

One Last Hurrah!

By Suzan Proia, C.Ht. Our society has created a joyful industry surrounding the birth of a child. We happily anticipate the arrival of a new baby. Parties are held for the mother-to-be. Nurseries are furnished with cribs and tiny clothes. Birthing classes are attended. After the baby arrives we begin the annual celebrations of birth, complete with cake, balloons, presents, candles and song. Every year we mark the accomplishment of surviving another trip around the sun. If we give so much attention to preparing for and celebrating births, why are we so afraid of death? Many people are hesitant to plan, discuss or face the inevitable, yet one of the few things we can count on in this crazy world is that we are all going to die. Why is it so uncommon to celebrate the life of the loved one who has just passed? We honor and remember them, but what about openly celebrating them? From my viewpoint of the after life, I am “happy” for the departed. I believe that being “out of body” is far easier and natural than managing a physical vessel. Of course we grieve the loss of the deceased, and we deal with navigating the emotional aftermath of losing someone, but that is mostly about those of us who are left behind. When my time arrives to transition to the other side, I want my friends and loved ones to honor me in a joyous way. I hope they will remember the laughter we shared, the lives I touched, and the blessings we enjoyed together. Birth is truly a miracle, life is an incredible challenge, and death is simply a stepping stone.

Occupy Brings Awakening

By Judy Levy We are fortunate to live here on Maui at a time when the world is seeing a peoples’ revolution, mass awakening, and major shift amongst humanity. Across the globe, citizens are expressing themselves and taking responsibility for co-creating new ways of conscious living. And through our phones and laptops, we are connected in a way as never before. Peaceful citizens around the globe have come together! Occupy Wall Street was launched September 17, 2011, when a small, diverse and focused group of young Americans camped out in Zucotti Park to “shut down Wall Street.” They occupied the area and brought attention to the numerous injustices overwhelming our society. The movement spread like wildfire as those brave citizens were joined by thousands in New York City, and by citizens across the United States and around the world. One year later, Occupy Wall Street on Maui is alive and well, with some important local accomplishments and more civic participation than ever before. The Occupy movement has been about organization, public education and galvanizing energy to create solutions. We’ve testified at county council meetings on numerous issues. We’ve come together with “GMO Free Maui” and “Moms Against Monsanto.” We’ve been supporting a fully self-sustainable Maui. We want our keiki to eat healthful foods and we encourage a garden in every yard. There are still many issues to address here in paradise: clean air, cane burning, toxic reefs from Monsanto’s “Round Up” run-off, toxic fish, unlabeled GMO foods, teacher cuts, illegal foreclosures, and more. Get involved and do your part to make a difference! It will send ripples all around the world. Judy Levy, mystical wise woman, reiki master, organic farmer and activist, is co-creator of Lotus Heart Books and Gifts at the Temple of Peace, Haiku. She invites you to come feel “the vortex of peace” and browse the exquisite collection of unique gifts and sacred treasures. Call 808.575.5220 or visit

Are We Radiantly Healthy?

By Maurgana Stiastny Recently I asked my husband what he thought about the theme of this month’s issue—Radiant Health. I can still hear his monologue, or rather, tirade. He usually thinks of himself as a pretty healthy guy, and yet he started to list his health deficiencies—receding hairline, graying hair, congestion in his ears, sore back muscles, and leg cramps. Then he went on about how addicted our culture is to cosmetic health, fads, and magic pills. It got me wondering whether radiant health is even possible, and whether I know anyone who has actually attained it. Our country spent 2.6 trillion dollars on health care in 2010 alone. Did it work? Are we radiantly healthy? I believe that a deep state of inner peace within one’s own being, conjoined with physical well being, are necessary for one to truly be “radiantly healthy” and emit a healthy glow. We all want this glow. How do we attain it? Besides eating right, exercising, drinking clean water, and resting well, what else can lead to radiant health? There is no easy answer except for awareness. We live on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Yet we still have our challenges—sugar cane burning, vog, electromagnetic stress, and demands of a modern technological society. It is important for us to be mindful of all of our choices in life and how we chose to care for ourselves. It is not an easy state to attain. It requires paying close attention to our inner and outer environments, and sometimes asking for help. It also requires acceptance of where we are on our journey to Radiant Health and Wholeness. Maurgana Stiastny, LAc, MAcOM, LMT, has been an acupuncturist and natural healthcare practitioner for 23 years.

Got Pono?

By Maluhia Zorzi One word comes to mind when I think of radiant health. It has few letters but has such a deep meaning in Hawaiian culture— pono. It is a word commonly used and heard throughout Hawaii. It appears in the word Ho’oponopono, meaning to make right with others and within one’s own self. When leaving someone, you will hear the phrase malama pono, meaning take care. According to the Pukui/Elbert Hawaiian dictionary, the meaning of pono is goodness, uprightness, morality, moral qualities, correctness, excellence, wellbeing, true condition, proper, righteous, successful, and more. Being pono is intangible and in many ways hard to articulate or describe. It is an action much easier to see in individuals. If we are not pono with ourselves or those around us, it can affect our ola (health), kino (body), and more importantly our ‘uhane (spirit). It means that some or all parts of us are misaligned, and in order to fix that we must practice Ho’oponopono to bring balance and alignment back into our life and foundation. In order to understand the word, we must look beneath our feet and around us. Pono is more of a foundation. It comes from below us, it comes into us, and it infuses us. It comes from above and around us. It’s all over. Pono is the term specific to our Native Hawaiian Kūpuna. Ho’omana Spa Retreat is located in Makawao and offers an array of indigenous therapies including Hawaiian Lomi therapeutic massage and spa treatments. To learn more visit or call 808.573.8256.

Our Heart: The Greatest Healing Force! By Maha Conyers I thought my granny was the most beautiful woman in the world. Her eyes shone with kindness and she exuded unconditional Love. Grandma encouraged me to travel, to learn from all cultures and religions, to become wise, and to bring heart and mind into harmony. For two decades, my quest led me to wonderful teachers who shared their diverse energy healing arts. When I came down with a severe case of candida in 1985, fortunately I had just met one of the great healers of the nervous system, Swami Shantam Dheeraj, Ph.D., founder of Tibetan Pulsing Healing. Using a specific sound and resonating the pain with the pulse beat, he had

overcome pancreatic cancer! According to him, the fear of being overpowered by male authority was one of the main causes of candida. This shed quite a different light on my relationships with men! Apparently the untransformed negativity within me brought on the disease. After Dheeraj gave me a pulsing session for my hara, old anger was gone and I was back in the “drivers seat.” The cause for the candida had been eliminated. I was in wonder of the transformative power of the heartbeat! The next time you feel stressed, try this: bring your fingertips together, lightly touching. Breathe in through the nose and out with the sound of “uhhh.” Direct your attention to the

Chywanprash Herbal Tonic

By Jackie and Dave Reed Chywanprash, or chyawanprash, or chavanprash, however you choose to spell it, is a delicious Ayurvedic herbal tonic. It is a jam-like mixture of 25 or more herbs with multiple health benefits. Traditionally, chywanprash’s main ingredient is amla, which is Indian gooseberry. It has 30 times the vitamin C of oranges and has demonstrated antiviral and antimicrobial properties. It balances all three doshas, or constitutions, and contains five of the six tastes recognized in Ayurveda. Chywanprash is a super antioxidant that strengthens the immune system, builds life force, and supports digestion, absorption and assimilation of the nutrients in your food. It acts as a cardiac tonic and nourishes the brain cells and nervous system. It also energizes the lungs and respiratory system, alleviating cough and asthma. Some other benefits of chywanprash include the following: purifies blood and supports liver function; aids in elimination and eases constipation; enhances fertility and tonifies the female organs; improves muscle tone, skin complexion and fosters hair growth; promotes strong bones, nails and teeth; and inhibits bacteria infection. Chywanprash is an overall endocrine support and general health tonic. The first historical documentation of the formula is found in the Charaka Samhita, the ancient Ayurvedic treatise. However, its origins can be traced to Chywan, a great Indian sage from the 4th century B.C., who first formulated it to restore his youth and longevity. Chywanprash is a great substitute for coffee, as it is a tonifier and not a stimulant. Chywanprash can be eaten directly with a spoon, mixed in warm milk or hot water, or spread on a cracker or bread. However you choose to ingest it, you will soon benefit from its numerous health advantages! Jackie and Dave Reed own and operate Maui Herbs, an Ayurveda healing center in Kihei. They are both clinical Ayurveda specialists. Jackie specializes in pulse analysis. Dave is also a chiropractor and Vedic astrologer.

GMO Labeling On CA Ballot

By Vanessa Wolf On November 6, Californians will vote on an issue both critical and unique to all Americans: labeling GMO foods. We are one of the only industrialized nations that does not disclose this information. Europe, China, and Japan all require disclosure of GMO levels over 1 percent. If Proposition 37 passes, it would be a huge step forward for consumers who either don’t want to eat GMO food or want to know what they’re eating. Unfortunately, Prop 37 suffers from a funding problem. Big business – including big “organic” – has raised $23.5 million to fight Prop 37, whereas less than $3 million has been raised in support of it. With genetically modified ingredients in most store-bought brands, including many organic products and most baby foods, the opposition is not surprising. The Cornucopia Institute released a fact sheet revealing the multitude of organic brands (many under the umbrella of a corporate parent) that gave thousands of dollars to fight GMO labeling; the list includes Naked Juice, Horizon Organic, Odwalla, and R.W. Knudsen. Monsanto donated $4.2 million. Kashi, Morningstar, and Gardenburger (all under the umbrella of Kellogg) and Cascadian Farm, Muir Glen, and Lärabar (all owned by General Mills) have together donated over $1 million to block the labeling of GMOs. It is likely that the original creators of these organic and natural brands would completely support labeling GMO foods. However, this is the result of selling (out) to companies such as Kellogg, General Mills or Dean Foods. Huge companies use the profits of small organics to fight against the very things they once stood for. On the bright side, Nutiva, Lundberg, Eden, Nature’s Path, Dr. Bronner’s Magic “All-One,” and Straus Organics have given significant amounts to support Proposition 37. Personally, I fully support companies that endorse labeling foods containing GMOs. Vanessa Wolf is a Maui-based writer and hypnotherapist in private practice in Kihei.

Choose Forgiveness

By Maribeth Theisen It is an immutable spiritual law that when there is a health problem there is a forgiveness problem. - Catherine Ponder, The Dynamic Laws of Healing Have you had fantasies of getting even with someone you felt wronged you? Various spiritual traditions consider anger, resentment and judgment toxic emotions that transmit violent energy. Doctors agree. Prevention Magazine states, “It is estimated that 90 percent of all physical problems have psychological roots…A growing body of evidence indicates that virtually every ill that can befall the body…is influenced, for better or worse by our emotions.” Defending against hurt and fear with anger can give the illusion of strength, but true power comes from choosing to create peace of mind. Mahatma Gandhi said, “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.” Forgiveness is not conceding the other person was right or that they are not responsible for their behavior. It is releasing feelings that limit you, making a choice to be free. The other person does not need to be present for you to forgive. Once you choose to forgive, write completion letters. In the first, thoroughly vent your animosity. Burn the letter to symbolize your willingness to forgive. In the second letter, focus on what you are grateful for and positive aspects of the relationship. With new found clarity, write the third letter. First, objectively describe what happened and the emotions that resulted; second, describe what you learned and the changes you are making in your attitude and behavior. Another simple tool is “The Forgiveness Diet” developed by Sondra Ray. For seven days, write this affirmation 70 times each day: “I completely forgive (person’s name) for (behavior).” Forgiveness makes you feel lighter and freer in your body, mind and spirit.

Hug Facebook Today?

By Erik Blair Did you hug your Facebook today? If you didn’t, then you’re one of the one percenters who don’t login to Facebook daily. You might want to jump on the bandwagon while you still can. Social media is the new way of mixing business with pleasure and there is no better time to get started. Social media is always evolving, but it’s here to stay. What the heck is social media anyway? Social media enables everyone to become a rock star. It’s a bunch of people having a conversation about the world around us. It’s people talking to people. It’s documentation on crack. Need a ride? Tweet it. Need to sell a car? Facebook the pics! Want to make your friends hate you? Post pictures of your latest Maui road trip. Your social media influence is directly dependent upon your ability to listen and dance with those within your circle of friends and the occasional newcomer. A huge part of social media is listening to what other people are talking about and what they’re sharing. It’s considered good practice to interact, comment and share conversations. Have something to say and add pictures for goodness sake! Don’t “sell” or “market” something. You can market your business wisely by sharing the experience, but not sharing the marketing material or the product too overtly. Don’t be too wordy or try to sell to your friends. What you post on social media isn’t private. So don’t talk badly about anyone. Choose wisely what you share. Weigh your options and side for the best intent and for the most laughs (and “likes”). Go ahead, hug your Facebook. Nobody will know unless you tell everyone. Erik Blair is an internet technology geek, event promoter and social media consultant who helps small businesses successfully navigate the ever-changing online marketing world.

WAKING UP TO THE REAL VALUE OF LAND Change only happens when the existing systems aren’t working. It takes a shock to wake up. Every day brings more shocks as we realize that our financial systems are giant Ponzi schemes, our governments are corrupt and dysfunctional; we have a high-tech health care in a feudal delivery system and even our food is corporate controlled and extremely contaminated. We have to do something, but where do we start? Start with food! Food brings us all together! Grow your own and sleep better knowing that it’s chemical free! Share the abundance with your friends. Asked what he thought of Western Civilization, Gandhi said that he thought “It would be a good idea.” We can say the same for sustainability, a word that means one thing to farmers and another to politicians. (Hint: malls only sustain developers and the consumer culture.) But out on our Haiku farm ‘sustain’ means preparing the soil with compost, using all cuttings for compost, using the fish waste on the garden – basically imitating nature as best we can.

We have benefited from local and visiting teachers, even recently hosting a ten-day permaculture course. Next year we will give a series of seminars to share our methods and system. Because it is up to us to upgrade our communities so they are more resilient – to make them more self-sufficient, sharing, robust and imaginative as we move further into uncertain times. We are encouraged by the spread of farmers markets, the Maui Farmers Union, the Maui Food Web, SLIM seminars, more Ag courses at the college and even farm tours for the visitors. Together we are building a stronger, local food systems that we will need as world food supplies become more scarce and expensive. I’m not sure how we will survive the GMO menace in our midst, but I know we are taking critical steps to feed ourselves. Final proof is that more of our real estate clients are asking for properties with fruit trees and gardens and proximity to local markets. Is organic food important to you? If you want to find property with favorable conditions for growing more of your own food, call us.

Be Your Radiant Self

By Barbara Ensign I love the word radiant. I see such beautiful visual images when I hear that word. From my view, radiance is showing or expressing joy, energy, or good health in a positive way. I visualize a shining or glowing light emanating out in rays from the heart center. It reminds me of a beautiful sunrise, or the rays peeking out behind the clouds, or a beautiful gemstone. Radiant health is an unmistakable energy that shines through your face, your eyes, and your entire demeanor. It is definitely generated from within, possessing all the qualities of being self-assured and confident of your true nature. Being your radiant self automatically creates a wellspring of health and well being from within. Hypnosis can support us on the path to radiant health. Being aligned with both your conscious mind and your subconscious mind creates a powerful force that directs energy in the positive ways that many of us seek. Through hypnosis, this can be achieved through the power of your own mind. We often think that we have to make a major change or shift to get the results that we want, but many times it is only a fine tuning that creates feelings of happiness, self confidence, or abundance that allow us to be free to be our radiant self. A simple reprogramming of the subconscious, or exploring a past life, can free us to be our true self. Whichever you choose, I support you in embracing total well being in body and mind and focusing on positive life enhancing conditions. Trade in those negative thoughts and habits and be your most radiant self! Barbara Ensign is a certified hypnotherapist practicing on Maui for over 10 years. She specializes in Past Life, Life Between Lives spiritual regression, and helping people make positive changes in their lives. Her office is located in Makawao.

Why You Need Supplements

By Rev. Debbie Dehm One of the great advantages of living on Maui is the year round access to fresh produce. I frequently brag to my mainland friends about how we can go out to the yard and pick fresh fruit. The variety of fruits and vegetables we enjoy provide our bodies with necessary vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fiber and calories. Some people think that eating a wide variety of these things is all they need to maintain a healthy body. However, it would be very difficult for anyone to eat enough of these things every day to give the body all the nutrition it needs. There are a few reasons for this. One reason is the depletion of minerals in the soil in which the food is grown. If the spinach isn’t absorbing as much iron as it used to, you’re not getting as much either. Another reason is that our stress has increased. Despite modern conveniences, we have more stress in our lives than ever before. Stress uses up vitamins like the B-complex very quickly. When your cells are depleted of B vitamins, your muscles get tight and sore. B vitamins are water soluble and pass through the body quickly if not used, so you can never get too many Bs. Another reason you need to supplement your diet is the increase of harmful toxins in our environment. Many of the things we put on or in our bodies, and are exposed to daily, cause damage. It’s impossible to avoid; they are in our air, water, and personal care products. A healthy immune system can help your body eliminate these toxins. A weak body will only hold on to them until the liver is strong enough to flush them out. For optimal health, remember to take a multivitamin every day! Reverend Debbie Dehm is a nationally-certified, Hawaii-licensed massage therapist and reiki master. For more information, visit her website or call her at 808.856.2065.

Dealing With Projections

By Eliza Bassett As we approach the Winter Solstice, many of us are feeling the pressure to release thoughts, actions, daily patterns and memories that will no longer serve us after that date. One of our challenges at this time is finding ways to deal with the projections others place upon us. Through personal awareness, you can start to see that these projections coming from friends, lovers, co-workers, or people passing through your life, are their problem and not yours. Whether you choose to engage or not, using your normal response mechanism is also part of the present opportunity for growth. One reason this projection pattern is strong is that Jupiter entered the sign of Gemini in June. The last time it was in this air sign, represented by a set of twins, was 2001. The element of air brings more mental qualities along with the drive to communicate about any and all topics. Jupiter’s positive attributes are: idealistic, generous, wisdom keeper and teacher, ambitious, faithful, visionary, humorous, inspirational, dignified, honorable, and expansive. Its detrimental qualities are: fanatical, bigoted, indolent, indulgent, lawless, gullible, impractical, excessive and pompous. Jupiter is said to be in “detriment” in Gemini. It does not operate at full positive polarity, thus bringing out the negative qualities. Perhaps you will find yourself arguing with the image in the mirror, or talking to yourself while driving or engaged in some other activity? The image of a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other can feel very real for many. To get through this time, we can apply ahonui, or patience, to every part of our lives. Do not react in an “off the cuff” manner. Be aware and awake. Even though Neptune wants us to drift into dreamtime, move into the practice of being more consciously present than you have in the past. Eliza Bassett is an astrologer and shamanic practitioner. She can be reached at or 808.214.6587.

Relax And Get Healthy!

By Heather Ardoin So many of us go through life rushing around from one thing to the next. We work, play, and sleep, but rarely do we rest. The opposite of stress is rest, not sleep. The Yoga asana, Savasana, or corpse pose is simply one of the healthiest things that you can do for yourself. This relaxation pose restores all the indices of stress to a healthful balance; including a decrease in blood pressure, respiratory rate, and brain waves. Savasana allows for an increase in the parasympathetic nervous system response, facilitating better digestion and assimilation of food, improving fertility, and speeding healing. Studies also show improved immune system function when a person regularly practices relaxation. Herbert Benson, M.D. has written numerous books on “the relaxation response”. Professor Leslie Walker, director of the Institute of Rehabilitation and Oncology Health at the University of Hull, in northern England, reported, “ Our results show that relaxation and guided imagery can bring about measurable changes in the body’s own immunological defenses.” Savasana is not meditation. In meditation there is an equal focus on in and out. Savasana is deeply interior by nature. Not all restorative yoga poses are savasana, but there are a few variations that you can use. All these variations have one thing in common: the head and heart are all at the same level. I teach a therapeutic yoga class each week that ends with a 15 minute savasana. It takes this long for the physiological relaxation responses to kick in. Once we start practicing a balance between work, play, and rest, radiant health is ours! Heather Ardoin is a licensed physical therapist, a certified Pilates instructor, and a registered yoga teacher. She is the owner of Therapeutic Fusion, a holistic practice in South Maui offering physical therapy, group therapeutic yoga classes, and private Pilates and yoga sessions.

What Reality To Create?

By YiXi Cuo Jia What reality do we want to create for ourselves in this calling time? In this time of a great consciousness shift, we all are facing our own identity – what we really are and what we want to be. Each cell in our body is created with pure love and worth more than all the gold. We are Gods and Goddesses; each one of us is the center of the whole universe – our perceptions, our feelings, and our beliefs shape our world every minute. Three core beliefs we need to shift and confront are: there is not enough, I am alone, and I am not enough. Until we totally get ourselves out of all illusions of separation, we will live in darkness. We have to believe our creator and the Great Spirit are kind and loving. We never could be separated from each other. If we want to experience true freedom, and feel spaciousness inside of ourselves, we must live out of the starlight that we are. Today’s bread is enough for us to dance and sing. Why do we have to worry about tomorrow? Doesn’t anyone just want to be acknowledged, accepted, respected, loved, embraced, and cherished? Can we befriend each other through love, knowing what we desire in our own heart and knowing that is exactly what others want as well? From east to west, the philosophies and teachings are the same. Greed and the illusion of scarcity are the root of every cause of illness. We were born rich and noble, and we all come here to share abundance and joy. We were born equal. The money game is going to end, which is the yearning of every heart. Nothing can fill that vacancy unless we feel fulfillment by simply being in our being. Love and blessings to all. YiXi Cuo Jia is a natural healer and quantum touch practitioner and instructor. To get in touch, call 808.276.1512.

Craniosacral Aquatica

By Andy Marcus Biodynamic Craniosacral Aquatica, which I developed, is a combination of classic aquatic therapies, such as Watsu, with the sensibility and perceptual skills of Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and breath therapy. A healing session begins with a connection to the qualities of warm water. The water has the ability to softly and gently carry the body (buoyancy). It has the qualities of enveloping, nourishing, melting and dissolving. It supports the release of thought and stress. In Craniosacral Aquatica, one responds to the natural unfolding or unwinding of the body as the practitioner and client flow in the water. This is based on the practitioner’s ability to relax and gently connect with the quality of water while responding to the client’s needs. While techniques create a foundation, the space the practitioner holds with trust and letting go into a natural flow are the most important aspects of the healing. From this way of working, all possibilities are open. Since the practitioner perceives from an open space and without a specific agenda, endless options for healing and movement become available. The movements can be very subtle and womblike at times, allowing one to flow into a state of suspended animation. At other times, they can be dynamic and playful, creating a sense of flying through the universe or playing joyfully in the ocean like a dolphin. The Biodynamic Craniosacral aspect of the work is present throughout the session. The sensitivity to pick up subtle movements, holding patterns and traumas help the client to release and reorient towards the natural matrix of health. This allows not only a healing of the body and nervous system, but also deepens one into meditation, peace, love, joy, wonder and awe. Andy Marcus, founder, teacher and practitioner of Healing Waters Sanctuary, has over 17 years of experience in aquatic healing therapies. His unique approach to healing creates a space to experience motion, stillness and complete transformation. To get in touch, call 808.280.0956.

Experience Being Touched By Truth “Truth is like tenderness, like softness. It’s like openness. Truth is the absence of needing anything. It is the absence of want.”

As the world community becomes increasingly interconnected, the awakening of consciousness is ever more apparent and necessary. In this article, Canadian mystic, John de Ruiter, suggests that only a simple heart can address the complexity and beauty of life. By John de Ruiter The heart is your conscious capacity to either close or open up, to either harden and tighten or to open and soften. The heart has the capacity to exist as a holding energy that will manifest want, need, insistence, demand, and ownership. Or the heart can be a capacity to be other than that holding energy, to be an energy of openness, where it can see past itself, where it can enjoy something outside of itself, without having to pull that inside and make it about oneself. The heart has a capacity to enjoy something on the outside without having to control it and pull it all in. The more the openness to enjoy anything without having to make it about oneself, the more truth there is. So truth is not something that can initially be appreciated by the mind. Truth is something

that touches the heart. Truth is like tenderness, like softness. It’s like openness. Truth is the absence of needing anything. It is the absence of want. When a little puppy comes running up to you and your whole heart opens up, that little puppy is ‘doing truth’ to you. When you hold a little baby, it is communicating to you. What is happening is that you are being touched by truth. Just look and see what happens inside of you when you hold a baby – that is truth. So that is how easy it is. That is how close it is.

“The role of a writer is not to say at we all can say, but at we are unable to say.” ~ Anais Nin

You have something important to say. I can help you say it. What you want are the right words. Suggest. Sell. Seduce. I’ve got them.

When you see a nest of little baby birds, then you see what that does to you inside – that is truth happening. And this is happening all day long. Every time you see a tree or you smell something nice, the fragrance of something, immediately it does something within. It opens you up. You are enveloped by it all the time. It is just letting yourself enjoy what you honestly enjoy, without having to seize it. In order to enjoy it, you let it in. You are not taking it in, but letting it in, and continually enjoying everything without trying to fill yourself up or store it inside, just letting it in and letting it through. Then there will be a simplicity of heart instead of having a complex heart. I suggest that the open heart loves and absorbs truth without holding it. When the heart relates not to want and need, life’s difficulties flow through just like life’s beauty. The open heart relates only to the truth in any experience. This lets us rest and serenely face a changing and challenging world. John de Ruiter is a Canadian born speaker and spiritual teacher who directs others to their own deepest knowing.

Yoga-Like Thai Massage Softens And Lengthens The Body By Vanessa Wolf Matthew Galena came to therapeutic massage and stretching - and ultimately Thai massage - intuitively. After a significant muscle injury at age 11, doctors were largely unhelpful, suggesting that he simply “walk it off.” Galena then discovered a large walnut-like lump in his inner thigh, began massaging and stretching it on his own, and eventually recovered almost completely. Meanwhile, friends were also having problems and wanted to understand what he was doing, but he didn’t have the words to teach what he learned through mostly trial and error. Years later in massage therapy school, a teacher demonstrated Thai massage. “I remember 10 or 15 minutes into it, I was absolutely on the edge of my seat,” Galena said. He recognized his calling. Sometimes called “lazy man’s yoga,” Thai bodywork combines several therapeutic techniques and intentions into one unique package. Massage, acupressure and meridian therapy are blended with yoga-like stretching to soften, separate and lengthen the body. “Thai Massage is a traditional physical therapy that creates space for energy flow,” Galena explains. “In a community that works together, each of your muscles is an individual, and everyone needs a little elbow room.” Thai traditions describe health as a balance between three essences: Body, Energy and Citta (cheet-tah). Body is anything that can be physically measured, Citta (or “Mind-Heart”) is considered your mental and emotional self, while Energy is the unseen force that binds them together. Energy is the natural power that separates life from death. As long as Energy flows freely, the body will harness that innate power to heal itself. In that spirit, Thai massage promotes energy flow by stimulating and stretching a distinct set of energy meridians that become congested or congealed. Galena calls them “energetic superhighways.” It also incorporates two different elemental theories, representing the body as Earth, Air, Water and Fire. One is similar to its Indian Ayurvedic ancestor, while the second is entirely unique, associating the elements almost literally: Earth is any solid created from plants, proteins and minerals we ingest, while the addition of Water and Air prevent Earth from becoming hard and dehydrated. Galena calls it “one of the simplest, most elegant models of the physical body.” Soil itself is a great metaphor for muscles in terms of how much air

and water are needed to sustain life. Fertile soil is moist, loamy, and easy to work with; dry soil settles and hardens over time, barren and difficult to break up. “When muscles constantly tighten and shorten without getting loosened and stretched, they pack and paste themselves down to where there’s little space for water and air,” Galena explains. “There’s no room for energetic movement. Parts of your body become like a brick if you don’t break them up. These days, I think of myself as an organic gardener.” But it’s not just about being tended to. In Thai healing, for radiant health, the process is a partnership of community and individual therapy. “Ruesri-Dat-Ton is a traditional Thai practice very much like yoga, designed to help heal yourself,” says Galena. “It’s the ‘Thai Yoga’ to enhance ‘Thai Yoga Massage.’ I am one of the strongest proponents for yoga you’ll ever meet, because I have been seriously injured many times, and it has healed me. Details change from one person to the next, but my advice is usually the same: breathe, relax, move and stretch! You are your own best therapist!” “I prefer to be a stepping-stone,” Galena explains. “The best I can do for anyone is guide them how to take care of themselves.” Matthew Galena provides Thai massage instruction and therapy services in Wailuku.

Break Your Addictions

By Salini Teri Apodaca I believe global transformation is well underway. When people feel that corporations and economic crises are co-opting their lives, they often reach for easy solutions, becoming addicted in the process. Our western lifestyle has fostered a culture of addiction. Many Americans are accustomed to popping pills to cover up symptoms and feelings. More than 70 percent of Americans are on medication. Children are becoming addicted to drugs in school, leading to later drug abuse. Widespread addiction is a sign of a sick society in need of healing. Often, transformation begins at the last stage of an addiction. At these moments, the soul is calling for help. An opportunity for change has arrived. We must stop creating addicts, and begin transforming how we manage our health and consciousness. You gain power when you relinquish all addictions and embrace a holistic lifestyle. One of the most widespread American addictions is to pain medication. It’s time for a new paradigm in pain management. We must feel our pain in order to transcend our addictions and awaken to our full soul gifts. The shortest route to wholeness and power is through pain. Surprisingly, we meet our greatest friends and teachers there. Experts say it takes 21 days to break a habit. Try the following exercise. Choose something simple to give up. For example, if you eat dessert every night, reduce it to one night per week. After three weeks, you’ve created a new and better habit. After you’ve worked with simple addictions, work towards your bigger addictions. When you’ve developed enough inner strength, you’ll naturally give up the things that take your power from you. Salini Teri Apodaca is a reiki master, author, shaman, teacher and a voice for healing and transformation. She appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” A recent transplant to Maui, she has opened The Soul Center of Maui. To get in touch, call 808.419.0497, email salinidivine@, or visit

Keep Our Children Safe

By Jane Eldridge This is not an easy subject. However, because of my concern for our children, I need to speak out. I have had many clients who have needed long-term, in-depth healing from the trauma of sexual abuse. Over and over, I have witnessed the deep agony and outrage that these clients expressed because someone used them for their own personal, selfish, and sick needs. These clients were abused by a family member or someone the family knew and trusted. They also felt pain and anxiety from not having anyone to talk to about the horror they were experiencing. They may have tried, but no one would listen to or believe them. Children don’t have the maturity to understand what is going on and they can be easily manipulated. If you have children in your life, please talk to them. Let them know that it’s not okay for anyone to hurt them on any level. Give them the power to recognize when something feels “yucky” and the confidence to say “leave me alone…don’t touch me!” If a child tells you that someone is abusive, please listen to and help them. Also, if you know a child is at risk, call the police and Child Protective Services, and make sure the child continues to be supported and protected. Using children for sex is a disease, a poison that is inflicted on the innocent by compulsive perpetrators who have not healed their own abuse issues. Please help to stop this sinister cycle of abuse. If you hire a childcare provider, check and recheck that this person is a safe caregiver. Most importantly, empower children to know that they can say “no” to abusive behavior. Jane Eldridge is a licensed marriage and family therapist who integrates psychological understanding with the foundation of spiritual awareness. She is an experienced relationship specialist and offers deep healing through body-centered therapy. For more information, call 808.268.7750 or email

Align Body, Mind And Spirit For Radiant Health

By Nancy Friedrich What is going on when we experience our own vitality as radiant and strong? What do others see and feel in our presence when we have a peaceful heart and we are glowing from the inside out? Healers call this a state of being “powerfull” (versus powerful). Being power-full, we are full with life force. We are connected to our innate gifts and talents and to our wholeness. By doing what gives our life meaning, such as being of service to others or being in-love, feelings of gratitude can help us feel radiant, joyful and power-full. We may experience this inner fulfillment when our creativity is flowing, with work or with fun, as we are deeply satisfied and connected to joy and vitality. How do we create this kind of radiance when we are not there, but would like to be? The answer to that is within each individual. We usually have ideas about what could shift our experience to more happiness and health. We may find there is a first step to take that leads to others. To move towards optimal health and vitality, we may start by tending to the needs of the body, mind and heart, or following the guide of our personal spirituality and inspiration. To be in radiant health, our body, mind and spirit need to be aligned. As we reduce compromise between head and heart, we will

feel self esteem growing. Paying attention to what we have and what is working in our lives (versus focusing on what’s not working) will help maintain vitality. We can exercise our choice, use our gifts, love and support ourselves, and put toxic thinking and any unhelpful ingesting on a starvation diet!
