Leonard Cohen Foretold “Democracy Is Coming To The U.S.A.” By Mark Sheehan “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.” - H. L. Mencken The lyrics of Leonard Cohen’s song about democracy hang over this election: “It’s coming from the sorrow in the street / the holy places where the races meet.” Maui’s success in electing four progressive candidates to our county council confirms that democracy is “coming through a crack in the wall.” But the national election results “I don’t pretend to understand at all.” What can we tell our children? We can tell them the Maui voters who passed the GMO moratorium two years ago felt betrayed by Mayor Arakawa and the council members who supported Monsanto rather than the initiative voters approved. Those voters took the next step by backing a slate of Ohana candidates who stood up for something besides themselves. The massive votes for challengers endorsed by Sustainable Action Fund for the Environment (SAFE), proves that, as Leonard Cohen sang, “it’s here [we] got the range and the machinery for change.” Two incumbent Ohana candidates were reappointed by comfortable margins and two newcomers won narrow victories. Business innovator Kelly King ran a solid campaign for the South Maui seat beating incumbent Don Couch who was perceived to be working with development interests to undermine community plans. In the tight race for the Wailuku seat, Hawaiian nature farmer and SHAKA leader Alika Atay beat the union-supported and experienced Dain Kane. The new minority – Cochran, Guzman, Atay and King – will have to fight for their vision if we are to have more just and

equitable county decisions. The battered establishment forces are seeing that A&B’s wishes and union endorsements aren’t what they used to be. Even now they’re looking at sympathetic candidates to back for the mayoral race in 2018. Progressive voters should be doing the same. Regarding the outcome of the presidential e l e c t i o n , Garrison Keillor observed, “Raw ego and proud illiteracy have won out, and a severely learning-disabled man with a real character problem will be president.” Glenn Greenwald thinks Democratic leadership circles “gorged themselves on globalism, free trade, Wall Street casino gambling, and endless wars… completely ignor[ing] the victims of their gluttony…” Did Trump really win? Greg Palast doesn’t think so. He claims that the Republican Crosscheck computer system, ostensibly designed to protect against voter fraud, actually suppressed votes in key states assuring a Trump victory. (see So it’s “sayonara to the Clintons” and two cheers for democracy as Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Keith Ellison and other progressives reconstruct a Democratic Party to represent the

full spectrum of Americans – not just financial elites and Silicon Valley gurus. The bigger battle is the collective fight to limit damage from the plague of Trump’s incompetent and mean-spirited right-wing appointments. The demonstrations taking place across the country must continue to fight to protect the health of working class families, the rights of women and minorities, the health and life of our rivers and streams, our right to privacy, and the ability for people of color to move freely without police harassment. Progress on the climate crisis will be reversed just when we should be doubling down in our efforts to prevent oceans from dying. The fate of the planet depends on our strategic activism; by every measure, the planet is collapsing from carbon poisoning. The slow, steady environmental progress of 40 years can be undone in four years or even 40 days by climate deniers, racists and authoritarian appointments to critical positions at the EPA and other agencies. It’s time for everyone to think about what we can do to stop the insanity. This fight will test our will as a people as we struggle to keep this country from devolving into chaos. Did you miss out on the 1960s? Well, lace up your shoes and get ready for a bold period of activism. A new era of democracy is on the horizon – “We’ll be going down so deep / the river’s going to weep / and the mountain’s going to shout Amen.” The song’s refrain is hopeful: “Sail on, sail on / O mighty Ship of State! / To the Shores of Need / Past the Reefs of Greed / Through the Squalls of Hate / Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on.” Mark Sheehan is a real estate broker, environmental activist and Leonard Cohen fan.

Reinventing Your Life

Yes, you can reinvent your life! It might be challenging, as it may require you to let go of people and situations in your life that are holding you back from expressing your truest desires, career path and lifestyle. I believe Steve Maraboli, a speaker, author and behavioral scientist, says it best: “Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.” To put it bluntly, if people are abusing you and making you unhappy, by all means cut them off! This is easier said than done, especially with family members – but you will be much happier in the long run, not being sidetracked with their nonsense. Melissa Kirk wrote an excellent article on – “5 Steps to Reinvent Yourself” – which could help you to begin the process. She states, “We have to choose reinvention. Each time I’ve done it, I’ve forged my new path deliberately and with foresight. When I’ve waited for my future to find me, I’ve waited in vain, lost in confusion and sadness, or I’ve gotten tangled up in a situation I didn’t want.” Be sure to check out what our writers offer as tools in this edition of Maui Vision Magazine. If you find a practitioner you resonate with, by all means reach out to them to experience the transformation you need! You can become your best self ever in 2017.

The Compass Of Our Soul Lights The Way By Liah Howard Each of us has a distinct path and identity, which only we can fulfill. The compass of our soul lights our way. As we discipline ourselves to go within – beyond the surface chatter of the mind, the changing emotions, and the changing circumstances of our lives – we connect with our inner compass that directs us towards divine right action based on our soul’s course. Our souls are always calling on us to be our best selves. Over time, as the circumstances of our lives change, the essential part of our nature always remains. This is our “pure self”; it is unlimited. It is unaffected by how much money we make, who we know or how much we know. Discovering this indispensable aspect of our being is key to finding peace in our changing lives. A Google search turns up the following definition of “self”: “A person’s essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action.” “Essential” is defined as: “Absolutely necessary; extremely important.” So if we want to know ourselves, we must continue to contact this deeper aspect of our essential nature. How do we discover who we are beyond the accepted external language we use to define ourselves? It can be scary to step outside of the ego’s striving and tap in to the unknown and shapeless realms of the spirit. I have a friend who is 75 and beginning to feel frightened about the end of his life. He is in excellent health, eats well, exercises and has a full social life. He adores his beloved wife. He owns his home and has retired from a successful career. And he is terrified about getting older and perhaps suffering from dementia or some debilitating illness. With all of his worldly success, he has not yet tapped in to the key nature of his true self – the soul. When he does, he will lose his fear of death because he will know that who he truly is exists beyond the earthly roles he plays, and even beyond death. In the course of a lifetime, we reinvent ourselves many times. However, none of our various identities can match the vastness of our spirit self – our soul. Our consciousness is limited by time and space in this third dimensional reality, unless we endeavor to see beyond the illusion of form and into the infinite. How do we shift our perspective beyond the tiny lens of our third dimensional self? The answer lies within. This inner journey may not be as exciting as a trip to Rome or winning the lottery, but, ultimately, the greatest wealth we discover is in the interior of our soul. When we learn to listen deeply to our intuition, we tap in to the higher self and discover a guiding purpose to our life. This awareness of an invisible, benevolent source can be revealed in a moment of spiritual awakening, or through a steady practice of inner listening or mindfulness. Either way, we experience a profound sense of not being alone. Are you ready for the adventure? Are you willing to answer the call of your soul’s longing? Confronting the fact that everything in this earthly life is temporary, we can embrace a deep trust in the eternal nature of life that goes beyond this world; and we can become our best selves.

Reinventing Your Life One Choice At A Time By Maurgana Stiastny At different junctures throughout our lives, we may choose to reinvent ourselves for a variety of reasons. It might be because of a career change, the loss of a loved one, the breakup of a relationship, or a move to a new place. These major shifts may cause you to want to live your life in a new and different way. For many people this may seem daunting, but if you take it step by step and just keep moving forward, you will succeed. As humans we are made to evolve and change. As adults we are reinventing ourselves all the time. Every day we can make choices in our lives that will propel us forward or take us backward. Ultimately, reinvention is about self-love. It’s when you love yourself enough that you know you deserve better. In reinventing yourself, you can move towards being who you’ve always wanted to be. It is freeing and it requires freedom to choose a new selfimage. Don’t let your fear of what others might think hold you back from doing what you want. You have to start somewhere, so imagine yourself as you would like to be. Find your strengths and your weaknesses, and use them both to help you move forward in your plan. If you think you want a new career, then read about it, take classes and find a mentor. Even if you have a job and want to change careers, then in your spare time every day put some energy towards your goal. Make a plan. Try things out. Let yourself be inspired. Rekindle your passion. Do what you love and success will follow! If you want to paint, then buy a canvas and start painting. If you want to write, then take time every day to read and write. If you want to start a business, then make a business plan. Let others who have done what

you want to do be a source of inspiration for you. Reinventing ourselves can be scary because it is unknown and our minds believe it is dangerous. We can always find many excuses that will hold us back. We have to override our fears, be brave and take chances. If you fail, just stay with it; try it a different way and then try it again. It is definitely a journey in which you must make a commitment and stay with it. Accept failure and resume your commitment. In this process of reinventing yourself, take time each day to sit and meditate. It will bring you to your core, and you will find greater calmness, efficiency and success in your life. If you are feeling really down in the dumps, then practice gratitude by writing down in a journal all that you have to be grateful for. As I said earlier, reinvention is about self-love. We need to make friends with ourselves. We can create who we want to be and then take very sincere steps forward to manifest that. If there are things that you have always wished you had done, then try to make time and space for those things to happen. I’ve always wanted to learn to play an instrument, and so I am taking college classes to learn to play the ukulele. I struggle with sometimes feeling that I don’t play very well, but I just keep going to class knowing that eventually I will be able to play well enough to accompany my friends. It takes time, energy and commitment, but I know it will be worth it. You are worth it. Be your own amazing masterpiece!

Federal Court Issues Ruling On Maui’s Anti-GMO Law

On Friday, November 18, the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued its ruling on the GMO Moratorium law passed by Maui County voters in November 2014. The court invalidated the law, stating “By banning commercialized GE plants, the ordinance impermissibly intrudes into the area of exclusive state regulation and thus is beyond the county’s authority.” In making the ruling, the court acknowledged GE practices: • cause widespread economic impacts on conventional farmers • that GE experiments and the plethora of pesticides they use raise environmental concerns regarding harm to animals and plants. While SHAKA is disappointed in the ruling and believes the three judges misinterpreted Hawaii law, the ruling clarifies that only the state has the authority to protect our environment and our health. Along with food activists across the state, we must now insist that Governor Ige and our legislators demand the DOA and DOH: • Test our soils, air and water regularly and publish the results; • Conduct health tests to determine public health impacts; and • Take action to protect our air, water and soil. SHAKA is proud of the courage and vision of Maui voters who passed the GMO Moratorium initiative. We are grateful to all the donors who contributed to the legal fund that advanced this matter to the higher court. By appealing the ruling at the local level, SHAKA and its attorneys were able to play a major role in allowing other communities to protect themselves from the reckless seed industry practices. Of great significance to state and local communities across the country, the Ninth Circuit ruled that federal law does not prohibit states and counties from passing local laws to regulate and ban commercially grown crops. This is a tremendous victory for the 38 states that have home rule. Unfortunately Hawaii is not one of those states.

Sensing A Wintery Pause

By Sahara Sun I desperately wanted to connect to my mother’s soul one more time before she departed this world. As she took her last breath, I was astonished to see that sparkling soul light in her big blue eyes disappear into a dark, lifeless void. The painful reality of death leaves the living seemingly buried in our own darkened void of stillness, as if a seed asleep beneath the wintery earth. In my own process of healing and grieving, I am turning to the guidance of our great Earth Mother who holds the key to moving through loss and change. The pause of winter is essential after a growing season or after any major life shift – such as a death, change of job, or relationship. Without taking time to reflect on these types of seasonal deaths, our own light can dim and become sequestered into unreachable places. Like a seed readying itself to burst forth, we need time to rebuild our light within while patiently trusting that a wintery, restorative, healing pause will eventually bring new life. As I observed my mother’s own growing season coming to an end, I have allowed myself to slip into a wintery dormancy readying for change. I have faith that like a fallen tree in the forest, new growth will fill the void in my heart. I trust that the seeds in me that are planted with intention, will sprout in accordance with the earth’s cycles. In the meantime, I am embracing the mana and Aloha spirit that has enveloped these islands in the stillness of winter. Sahara Sun, an internationally known intuitive soul healer and Five Element Acupuncturist, offers transformational healing sessions on Maui and by Skype. Sahara’s book, Heart Broke Open, shares her epic journey to heal, beginning with a leap of faith to Hawaii where Maui’s magic shows her the way. Call 808.868.9281 or visit

Regenerating On The Solstice


By Heather Salmon Solstices and equinoxes mark the times of transition for our sun. The winter, or Yule solstice, marks the longest night of the year in the northern hemisphere. Of all the eight holy days on the great Wheel of the Year, the winter solstice is the most powerful time of regeneration. The ancients knew this and built archaeological monuments and temples that created direct alignments with the rising sun on this day. Most famous are Stonehenge (England), Karnak temple (Egypt), and the Mayan walled city of Tulum (Mexico) to name a few. Special rituals were held and people gathered from far and wide to partake in the blessings of this sacred communion time with nature. Actually, seven days make up the sacred time of regeneration around the winter solstice. It begins three days before and concludes three days after the day of the solstice. The three days prior, during which time the light is diminishing, is a powerful time to go within, examine our shadow sides, and offer up those things we are ready to heal or transform through release rituals. During the three days following solstice, the sun is actually traveling along the elliptic part of its orbit and appears to be standing still. On the third day, also known as Christmas (the Greek word “christos” means the anointed one), the light begins to noticeably grow again. This was known as a time of magic and resetting; a time to receive vision and inspiration in the shamanistic traditions of Nordic communities. This is still a wonderful time to reinvent ourselves, to open to receive guidance and inspiration as we reset, and to dream into being all that we are called to create in the next solar cycle.

Cultivating Love With Kundalini: Jai Dev and Simrit By Sahara Sun, LAc Traversing the path of our soul can seem like navigating through a darkened forest where subtle synchronistic encounters are the only guidance. Jai Dev Singh and Simrit have come to Maui to shine a light on our path with their live music, kundalini yoga retreat, and concert. “We come as pilgrims who are feeling very fortunate to share the teachings and practices of kundalini yoga. The work can be so effective on Maui because of the mana of the land and the receptivity of the people,” Jai Dev shared. At the young age of 15, a painful healing crisis led Jai Dev onto the healing path of awakening his own kundalini. He now pays this forward as a teacher of this ancient Ayurveda tradition. Simrit’s path has become a natural progression back to her roots, which is beautifully expressed in her latest album, Songs of Resilience. Originally born in Greece, Simrit has found inspiration through Byzantine folk songs that are hundreds of years old, African drumming and an expansion of her own spiritual experience. Jai Dev and Simrit’s unique paths into kundalini yoga have allowed them to combine their love of mudras, yoga and music into a ‘transportive healing experience.’ “The more I am tuned to my own center, people are inspired...because I don’t feel my spiritual experience is limited to one look, one sound, or one way to act,” Simrit explained. “For me, being spiritual is me being me, which serves to inspire others. I am not afraid to express what wants to come through me. Perhaps, I was trying to please others before.” Jai Dev recalled their first synchronistic meeting in a sweat lodge. “The first time I heard Simrit sing my jaw dropped,” he said. “I asked her if she’d come sing live at one of my yoga classes. Immediately, we saw a huge contrast in people’s experiences with yoga when she sang live.” They continued to explain how kundalini is the energy at the base of the spine. This energy will rise at a slow and steady pace using mantras, poses and music to soften the body and mind. The rising kundalini strengthens the organ systems, and relaxes while energizing at the same time. When I asked them about potential concerns people may have about kundalini yoga, Jai Dev replied, “I try to demystify the word, ‘kundalini.’ When you are not in the process of growing and awakening, the part of you that is limitless is unfulfilled. To yearn to grow and learn to become is kundalini.” “This type of yoga doesn’t require any experience, only an openness to try something new.” Jai Dev conveyed that this is not going to be your typical cobra pose or downward facing dog. This is a full body, mind and spirit experience where a “shrinking away of the problems” in your life occurs. “A lot of the audience doesn’t practice yoga,” said Simrit. “Most consider it world

music, but the music in conjunction with the kundalini practice itself can be exponentially more powerful.” “At a certain point,” Jai Dev said, “yearning becomes stagnated. The pressure to keep it alive gets stifled and dullness sets in, which creates depression, anxiety, and lack of genuine fulfillment. If you are cultivating love in your life then you are practicing kundalini.”

Your own soul’s path may lead you to cultivate love through the experience of their Radiant Body, Diamond Mind retreat featuring live music and kundalini yoga, February 8-11 at Lumeria Maui. Their live concert follows on Sunday, February 12, 7:00 p.m. at Historic Makawao Union Church. For tickets and more information:

Letting Go And Letting God

By Rhonda J. Felix Time is always a great measuring stick. As we look back we can easily measure how something has changed. When we find ourselves in transition in our personal lives, this measuring stick can be a welcomed tool! The past few years have been an extremely transitional time for me, and change was the desired outcome. By all means my toolbox was full of tools I had collected for over 40 years. But it seemed I needed a new perspective, and indeed I did. Let Go and Let God – this became my key to surrender, my key to change. Within my depths I had to be willing to say, “show me” and “help me let go of control of people, places and things.” Control had been my means of operation, and ran deep in me and my family of origin. I had to be willing to let go of the outcome and let go of my perspective. Therein lies the key – to be willing. Did I say this was easy? I had to put on my boots and my big girl panties because it was not easy; it was a slippery slope filled with old beliefs and ideas. I had to shift my focus from others, to myself. I reinvented myself by putting my attention on self-care – what is best and in the highest good for me. Though this took hard work, I have received a wonderful gift. Life as I desired it has become a reality. I am stepping into the person I had always wanted to be – joy-filled and grateful! Rhonda J. Felix is a certified teacher for the work of Louise L. Hay, “You Can Heal Your Life”®. She is a licensed Unity teacher and licensed massage therapist with reflexology as her specialty. The next “You Can Heal Your Life Workshop” will start late January.

The Gift Of Silence

By Suzän Proia “I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own.” - Chaim Potok, The Chosen Recently, life gifted me with a period of prolonged upheaval and dramatic transition, during which I resorted to self-induced isolation. I craved solitude. Seemingly overnight, my persona morphed into that of a turtle as I retreated into my shell. No television to assault the psyche, no music (normally ever-present) to interrupt the thought processes, limited phone communication, texting or messaging. Filling the void was the sweet sound of silence. In the presence of quiet and the absence of distraction exists a fertile field, begging to be planted. This soil is where meditation seems almost effortless, where creativity bubbles to the surface, erupts and grows. This is the place where true inner healing begins. Experiments performed with mice and humans have emphasized the critical importance of silence in our daily lives. Living with constant noise will send your stress levels soaring. Exposing yourself to sound pollution from any source will adversely affect your health. Depression, sleep issues, poor motivation, and memory problems are possible consequences. By contrast, a tranquil setting and immersing oneself in silence can produce relaxation and improved cognition. Mice grew new brain cells that became neurons with exposure to only 120 minutes of quiet per day. Stepping away from noise allows your brain time to reflect, which is critical for inner growth and happiness. Benefits show up in reduced stress hormone levels, healthier heart rate, increased motivation, and better cognitive thinking. It’s such a simple solution; give yourself the gift of silence and you will reap the rewards! Suzän Proia, B.A., EPC, C.Ht. is certified as a professional coach, EFT practitioner and hypnotherapist.

The Rolf Method of Structural Integration is a holistic system of bodywork and movement education that has remarkable results in reducing or eliminating chronic pain. It reorganizes connective tissue (fascia), the stuff that holds everything (bones, muscles, organs) in place and gives us our shape. Due to physical injury, emotional trauma or inefficient patterns of movement, adhesions can form in the body’s fascia; this can result in pain and limiting range of motion. Rolfing aligns and balances the body by lengthening and repositioning the fascia. As fascia is lengthened, it allows the body to move more efficiently and with less pain. As a practitioner, I use my hands, fingers and elbows to work the entire fascial system in a systematic way to release tightly-held connective tissue. I take into consideration which area and layer to work with that will allow the next layer and area to open up without the previous one going back, providing expansive and sustainable results. Each session includes an evaluation while standing and walking. Then we move to table work, where you may be asked to slowly move an elbow or knee or turn your head while I apply pressure and hold tissue where it belongs. The combination of my touch with your movement creates an internal stretch and neural rewiring that releases strain and reminds the body of its natural function. If you are ready to change your life, look no further than changing your physical structure through realignment in gravity with Rolfing. Alison Grabel is a Certified Advanced Structural Integrator dedicated to the traditional teachings of Dr. Ida Rolf. She delivers all her sessions with Aloha, and is grateful to assist in your journey to expansion and balance. Visit Alison’s website,, or call 808.639.0394.

The Vibrational Raindrop Technique (VRT)

Treat your whole being to an unparalleled level of relaxation and deep harmonious alignment. Vibrational Raindrop Technique (VRT) is a powerful route to unifying body, mind, and soul. VRT is the method of applying therapeutic-grade essential oils to the feet and back using specific massage and Native Lakota vitaflex strokes in combination with gem-stone tuning forks with the purpose of releasing physical pain, energy blockages, and stress. The forks work in synergy with the essential oils to bring the vibratory frequency of an organ, chakra, meridian point, or muscle into balance.

Creating A New You

By Barbara Ensign Did you know that you have been inventing and reinventing yourself since the moment you were born? With every new skill that you learn, you create new neural networks in the brain. Every new thought or positive way of thinking keeps your brain young and healthy. Every mood affects your stress level and body chemistry. Every piece of food you eat and the amount of sleep you get, affects your health. Every time you exercise it affects your muscle tone. Feelings of love affect all your cells in a positive way; and anger, sadness or grief affect them in a negative way. Just as all of these things and more have created you, you can use the same tools to create a new you at any time. Viewing an old problem in a new way can help you avoid staying stuck in an old negative thinking pattern. Replacing old habits with new beneficial ones, and making changes both outwardly and inwardly, can take time and dedication. If you are sincere and want to make a change, you will find that hypnosis is a wonderful way to make all the changes you desire and to reinvent yourself. Hypnosis helps you regain control over your life in all situations. Ultimately, you are in control of your universe. You are in control of your mind, your body and your health. You are in control of the thoughts that you think, the foods that you eat, and the activities that you choose to do. Hypnosis can help you to achieve all of your desired goals. Because it works on a subconscious level, change is easier and long lasting. Why not reinvent yourself? Barbara Ensign is a certified hypnotherapist in Makawao, Maui who specializes in past life and life between lives spiritual regression. She helps people make positive changes in their lives.

Sometimes Love Means Letting Go

By Jenny Grace Shaw For years I have heard the saying, “If you really love someone, set them free”; but it never really soaked in until recent circumstances. I never thought I would have to make a life or death decision about my beloved kitty, Princess KiaraLee. I reached out for someone to tell me I didn’t have to make this decision. I found myself screaming to God night and day, “Please don’t take her from me; I need her!” My princess is my everything, you see; she’s my best friend, my companion, my safety, my spirit, my daughter. I loved waking to her kind eyes every morning, doing all I could to make her feel queen of the home. I joked often, “It’s really her condo; I just pay rent.” It never occurred to me to say “no” to the opportunity for true love the day she elegantly trotted through my front door. In fact, I can’t even imagine the last twelve years without her. But had I been too afraid to feel pain or loss, I might have said “no” and allowed the fear of loss and grief prevent me from the glory of love. In one breath, I would have gotten in my own way and sabotaged my own love story. My darling princess was gifted to me in 2005, instantly becoming my guardian angel connecting me to God, Earth, Universe, Life. And I would have completely blocked this miracle had I told myself to be closed and stay “in control.” In her last months I watched her, talked with her, cared for her, loved her, prayed for her. Then my dear Lord sat me down and confronted me: “She’s hurting, dear. She doesn’t have a quality of life right now. You know this.” In fact, I did know it. I just didn’t want to. My baby looked up at me just then, and through her eyes I heard: “When you truly love someone, let them go.” Tears slowly rolled down my cheek as she continued to look straight up at me. “Mom, I love you,” I knew her spirit was saying to mine. “It’s okay to let me go now. We have had such a wonderful life together; thank you!” I repeated to myself: “If I truly loved her, I would let her go.” Noticing the tears had ceased and the tissue box emptied, I looked back at my angel again. I whispered, “I do love you enough, my dear.” I swear she winked. “I love you so much I want you to be free of your pain.” Looking back now I still find the tears flowing. I sometimes wish for her to show up at my door. Though I experience hurt, locking my heart’s door is not an option. I don’t sit in anger and resentment because she promised forever and then didn’t keep her side of the bargain. I don’t waste priceless energy planning how I will stay tightly closed off so that I will never hurt again. And I certainly don’t strategize how to control the behaviors and choices of others to prevent them from ever leaving me. Instead, I calmly share my love story with you and feel the warmth from my memories of her. I have been blessed with the miracle of all the years we shared, learned, played, loved. And it all started because I was open. Jenny Grace Shaw, M.Ed., LMHC, CPT, HHP, is a therapist, personal trainer and wellness coach with offices in South Maui.

Flow With Ease

By Ann Paquin Our thoughts and attention can be powerful forces for flow! Would you like to learn to shift your attention to watch the world unfold with greater ease? Ease means less constriction and, therefore, supports our health and neurology. With practice, we can be with difficulties and perceive them in a way that is interconnected with the preciousness and beauty of life. When we think life has to be hard, we put our attention and energy towards expanding evidence of what is hard in our experience. We filter out and assign lesser value to the actual ease that does exist. We may not even be able to see, feel or experience the ease that supports us this moment. So what is the practice for seemingly not having it all in this moment, yet feeling fully in your flow and on purpose with ease? Knowing that it is possible! Many have courageously achieved this knowing, even while experiencing significant adversity. It is, however, possible to know this truth through a path of choosing ease. To introduce more flow, create an effective, do-able habit by recruiting curiosity. Look for activities and situations where habits no longer serve you. For example, when going to look in the fridge because of boredom or anxiety, ask yourself, “what three other options do I have?” You could have a drink of water, plan a healthy meal, or put on a favorite song and have a dance break instead. Commit to acting upon what most lights you up in the moment. The more you practice, other delightfully creative options appear. You’ll soon discover your new personalized habit just right for you. Instead of entering into another new year with the same old familiar resolutions, let’s remember that we are unique sparks of the Divine! Ann Paquin is an intuitive soul coach.

Updating Your Home For 2017! By Cathleen McCandless Our homes are reflections of our inner and outer lives. A tired, uninspiring home promotes a tired, uninspiring life. Below are easy, inexpensive tips to update the look and feel of your home for a new year and a new you. • • • •

• • • • • • • • • •

Slipcovers bring new life to old furniture without much cost. Update artwork to reflect who you are now and what you want to create in the future. Area rugs can be used to change the color and texture in a room. New hardware and fixtures (door handles, drawer pulls and light fixtures) dramatically update the look and feel of a kitchen or bathroom. Fresh linens (sheets, comforters, towels) add luxury to bedrooms and bathrooms. Donate old linens to animal and homeless shelters. Move furniture and décor items from one room to another for a fresh perspective. Update photos with recent events to step out of the past. Replace half-melted candles with new ones. Remove and replace dead or dying plants. Rearrange your furniture for a completely new perspective. Change or add colored curtain panels to a window for a dramatic new feeling in a room. Purchase mirror frame kits at a home improvement store to give a boring bathroom mirror new life and elegance. Paint a whole room or an accent wall a beautiful new color. Add colorful flowers to the front yard and entry. Look at each room with fresh eyes. Get rid of anything you don’t want, love, need or use!

Ask Your Hypnotist

By Michelle DeStefano, Master Hypnotist Can hypnosis help me discover my life purpose? - Tom R., Lahaina Aloha Tom, and thank you for asking this great question. The answer is, yes. We hypnotists believe that each person possesses inner wisdom and guidance that comes from within. Due to many different reasons, sometimes our access to this inner wisdom gets blocked, leaving us unable to tap in to it on a conscious level. This may leave us longing for answers to deep questions such as, “What is my life’s purpose? Why am I here? What’s the meaning of life?” Not knowing these answers can leave us feeling directionless and ungrounded; we may feel that we are flailing through life instead of thriving. Everyone experiences this disconnection differently – some people may feel anxiety without understanding why, while others may feel a general lack of joy or have the sense that they are just going through the motions of day-to-day life. Hypnosis can aid in penetrating the subconscious mind (which is the true influence of one’s beliefs and attitudes towards life) to help ferret out one’s deepest thoughts around the meaning of life. From that deep place of focused concentration while in the hypnotic state, one can witness the answers, insights and wisdom that bubble up from the hidden mysteries of the mind to be revealed on the conscious level. These revelations allow people to begin to discover the answers to such questions about the meaning of life and their life’s purpose, helping them move along the path of a more purposeful and joy-filled life. Michelle DeStefano, a master hypnotist with her Maui practice, Free Yourself Hypnosis, is double certified. She is member of both the National Guild of Hypnotists and the American Hypnosis Association. She specializes in stress reduction and pain management.

Optimizing Your Health And Life By Linda Rayner, M.D. When we create something we usually use some type of directions – a blueprint to build a house, a recipe to bake a cake, or a pattern to sew a dress. Author, biologist and researcher, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, expands this idea to the living world with his work on morphic fields. These are organizational blueprints that inform our atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, organisms, and societies of organisms (such as a flock of birds). The collective memory of previous organisms of that species is expressed through this field, which shapes the form it grows into, and informs the underlying instinctive behavior and habits of the species. Using this idea in the world of energy medicine, we can look at the morphic fields that influence your life. Perhaps non-beneficial morphic fields create situations that can be detrimental to your health and wellbeing; or perhaps beneficial morphic fields are missing or being blocked from being effective. For example, if you don’t have the morphic field for a healthy body, then it can be challenging, despite other attempts, to attain good health. Multiple organs or bodily systems may be working from a less than optimal blueprint. One solution for this can be working with the assemblage beam. This is an energetic vortex running through the center of the chest and upper back, which forms a conduit of life force. Downloading a healthy morphic field for the assemblage beam can optimize the morphic fields for most, if not all, of the other body parts that are not running from a healthy blueprint. So are you ready to reinvent yourself by releasing the unhealthy, and downloading a healthy set of morphic fields to provide a more optimal blueprint for your life? Dr. Linda Rayner works beyond the physical to help her clients optimize the blueprints that run their life and health.

The Beliefs That Govern Our Lives By Paul O’Brien Your beliefs – about yourself and the world you live in – are the lens through which you experience life. Every thought, every feeling, every decision and every action you take, arises out of your beliefs. Many are so deeply ingrained that we take them for granted as representing reality and rarely question their validity. We act on beliefs as though they are a fixed part of us; while our subconscious selects information that reinforces what we already believe. Eastern masters have long advised, “Cease to cherish opinions.” From the Zen perspective, all beliefs are little more than current opinions – based on the best perceptions we can make, given our upbringing and conditioning, and what we would like to believe. Around age 3 or 4 we begin to make conclusions about our environment and form core beliefs to make sense of the world. Such deeply entrenched opinions can continue to operate subconsciously for a lifetime. Looking at beliefs as opinions illuminates their impermanent nature. As I discuss in my book, Great Decisions, Perfect Timing, every belief is a choice – one we are making now or made years ago. Recognizing the nature of beliefs helps us be more open and flexible; and able to allow our beliefs to naturally evolve based on new learning experiences. If we want to make better decisions for ourselves, we must be willing to reconsider what we think is true and grow beyond the limitations imposed on us by our current beliefs. The important question now is: How aware are you of your beliefs, especially your fears? Often the vigor with which we defend against our fears unwittingly locks us into the belief behind them. More than any other mental structure, your beliefs and the attitudes they derive

from define what is possible for you. Beliefs can be a major limiting factor in getting what you want. An important part of self-knowledge, it is necessary to take full ownership of what you believe – something most people actually never do. For one thing, it requires the courageous humility of self-examination. To make things more difficult, many of us were taught that certain beliefs are sacred and that even to question them is a sin. Well, the wise and the brave are willing to question and test everything they believe in order to make better, more conscious decisions. Can your current beliefs pass two critical tests? 1) Are they based in reality as best you understand it now (have you studied?) and 2) Do they help the realization of your higher desires, your aspirations? If you answered no in either case, it’s time for some more experimenting and learning! Nothing is more important than having success-functional beliefs! A skillful way to look at beliefs is to take them as current operating assumptions, rather than ‘facts’ or articles of faith you must cling to. They should work for you, not you for them! Ultimately, we are responsible for our beliefs and the decisions we make from them. Believing itself is a choice, so decide wisely. Be sure to upgrade your beliefs as needed. Try and learn new things. SPECIAL FREE GIFT: Maui Vision readers can download a free iPad, Kindle or PDF copy of Great Decisions, Perfect Timing via Enjoy!

Astrology And The New You

By Ginny Ross We enter into Oneness when we transcend the creative limits of our personality to integrate into the limitlessness of pure Being. Astrology offers a path for you to do that! Your Sun sign reveals the most relevant path for selfexpression – traits that define you and fulfill your desires. If your Sun sign is Aries, you are naturally decisive, action-oriented, assertive and independent. The clue to expanding your reality is found in appreciating and adopting some qualities of the opposite sign, Libra – the sign that represents balance, the artistic, sociability, diplomacy; and seeks relationships. If you’re a Taurus you tend to be steadfast and seek comfort, pleasure and beautiful possessions. However, the opposite is the infamous Scorpio, known for its penetrating intensity, seeking ultimate truth and challenging the status quo. Traversing this duality overcomes rigid patterns and stimulates transformation. Geminis, who are communicative, curious and sensuous, find expression in creative ideas and exciting plans. Their opposite, Sagittarius, is adventurous, open-minded, outspoken; and finds meaning in an expansive worldview. These two signs provide perspective to each other. Cancer is the sign of emotional nurturing, the home, mother, and all that creates containment and security. Opposing is Capricorn, the sign of structure, responsibility, father, hard work and accomplishment. Everyone feels safe when mother and father are harmonious. And then there’s Leo – self-assured, passionate, big-hearted and honorable – whose polarity is altruistic Aquarius, a unique, freedom-loving techy. Leo needs love while Aquarius needs change. If you’re a Virgo, satisfaction comes with efficiency, precision, being health conscious and organized; in contrast to Pisces who is imaginative, romantic, with metaphysical abilities and spiritual aspirations. Notice how acknowledging the characteristics of the opposite sign expands you beyond the circumference of the old you. Try this experiment and enjoy the unlimited new you.

Empowering Upliftment

By Fawni Ruhf Your life is not a set of events that happen to you. The events happen and you choose how you act or react to them. As you become more consciously self-aware, or fully present in the moment of the event, you begin to realize that you are in control of what situations you find yourself in and how you act in response to them. Will you choose to surround yourself with situations that keep you feeling uncomfortable, struggling, or in pain? Or will you choose to surround yourself with people and environments that support you, uplift you, and create success in your life? Are you going to continue to react according to patterns and triggers of the past, or act according to how you would like to be right now to create a future you desire? Your actions create your future. You can change your life today by allowing yourself to be in the present moment, not letting your past define you, and letting go of old stories. Some actions you can take to reinvent and empower your life: ● Start with self-care. Make sure you have the vitality and energy to move forward towards making choices that come from a place of love rather than fear. ● Know that you are capable. Anything you don’t know or don’t have, you can learn or obtain from someone who does know or have it. ● Empower yourself to make choices that feel good and move you towards a future situation that is healthy. ● Choose actions based on what is in your best interest of wellbeing. ● Start believing in yourself. You are enough, you are worthy, and you deserve love. You can take control of your life again, living from the present moment and consciously choosing your future.

Removing The Blockages

By Douglas J. Price, D.C. Reinventing oneself is a natural progression of life. This means not only changing the structure in your life, but also by clearing it you allow your natural energy to flow in this time and space. What allows the energetics of your body, mind and spirit to flow unimpeded is the clarity of information. If your system is in an altered rhythm caused by unanticipated dramatic events that have happened in your life, then you may become stuck and feel as if you’re going round and round in circles, making the same mistakes over and over again. You may not realize that unconsciously, you are actually trying to fix matters that are important to you. So what do we have to do? Actually, when we clear our space and let go of the past, we feel renewed. For instance, when we are inspired to rearrange our furniture and give our home a fresh coat of paint, we feel new again. This realization is actually leading up to clearing distortions in our DNA that will express and renew our lives. It is a scientific fact that any animate being that does not live according to what they are designed to do or live their purpose, may then create illness and even death. We don’t really need to change who we are; we just need to remove the blockages. No matter what we aim for in life, we must achieve a proverbial housecleaning; and then with this clarity, we are able to reinvent new pathways based on who we are and what we were meant to do in the first place. Dr. Douglas J. Price, D.C. has over 30 years of experience in chiropractic and kinesiology. His approach to healing is revolutionary; it encompasses both wellness and resolution. Author of Activate Your Brain To Heal Your Body, he teaches online and travels internationally. Contact:, 808.244.0415.

Feel Better, Be Well Know Yourself!

Cleansing Toxins From Your Body

By Shelby Molchan Beach clean ups, recycling and reusable bags are great ways to help our environment. But if your internal environment is polluted, you may not feel the serene, spiritual connection you desire. Toxins stored in the body deplete energy and fog the mind, making it difficult to really ‘feel’ the beauty of a perfect Maui day. An overburdened liver impedes emotional chi from flowing freely in the body, and manifests as anger, negativity and hopelessness. An impacted colon stores toxins leaching them to the blood stream, causing allergies, skin conditions, irregular bowels, pain and lethargy. If you’re not experiencing the spiritual gratification and positive energy you desire, the problem could be internal pollution. We all have heard the saying, ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness.’ While that may refer to keeping your kitchen clean, it also relates to maintaining cleanliness in the physical body. Throughout history, spiritual figures have used fasting to cleanse the body. Jesus found it important to fast, even though fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified foods were not present in his environment. In this era, we are exposed to toxins daily. Simple changes in diet and lifestyle promote the body’s natural cleansing abilities and boost immunity. When we are feeling strong and healthy, it is much easier to have a positive outlook on life and sail through the day with good, sustained energy. Buddha said, “To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep the mind strong and clear.” With clear mind and strong body we are better able to connect with self and the beauty that surrounds us, and invent the life we desire.

Escaping The Prison Of Eating Disorders Living with an eating disorder is like living in an invisible prison – a prison through which you can see into a world where other people seem to be living, eating and loving freely; but you are trapped, unable to find a way out into the world of ease and freedom, forced to watch with mute longing behind invisible walls. I know this feeling well because for 10 years I lived in the invisible prison of life with an eating disorder. I spent years looking at friends and family in disbelief and bitter jealousy, not understanding how they were able to simply eat without the all-consuming obsession and guilt that I felt with every mouthful. I truly believed that if I allowed myself to eat what I so desperately craved, obesity was just a few bites away. I even used to diet in dreams. I suffered from anorexia nervosa type II – a kind of anorexia that also includes periods of binging and purging, alongside prolonged periods of self-imposed starvation. At the time, I believed that anorexia was necessary in order to achieve my professional goals. Yes, I knew what I was doing; I knew it was called anorexia, and I knew that it could lead to heart failure, kidney failure, osteoporosis, amenorrhea and even death, but I didn’t care. It was going to help me get everything that I so desperately desired. However, like all deals made in darkness, secrecy and shame, it went sour. It didn’t give me my dreams; it stripped my body of every last resource until I was too weak to achieve what I had set out to do. It made me doubt myself; it made me hate myself.

My turning point came when I decided that if I had to choose between being fat and being dead, that I would pick fat. It was my greatest fear, and one day I picked up an egg roll to face it. I looked at that egg roll and I told myself for the first time since I was 12 years old, “Go ahead and eat the egg roll. You are allowed to eat it because you’re hungry, it tastes good, and you can’t live in fear of an egg roll.” I ate it, and it was good. As silly as it might sound, it was one of the hardest decisions of my life. From that point on my recovery really began to take shape. After facing the fear of fat, I felt ready to face the real problems underneath. I finally had the courage to find people who could help me understand that my eating disorder was never about food, or thinness, or fatness. It was a way to hide, a way to find control, a way to cope; it was a distraction from deeper pains. Slowly, with great effort and with many stumbles along the way, I got better and my invisible prison faded steadily into mist and memory. Since I found treatment, I know, first hand, that full recovery is possible. It is never too late or too early to reinvent your life. If you need help, don’t wait – ask for it today!

Does Neck Trauma Trigger MS?

By Erin Elster, DC Can trauma to the head or neck trigger the onset of Multiple Sclerosis (MS)? This question has been a topic of debate in medicine for years. The suspicion has lingered and does not seem to be fading at all with time. In fact, more medical researchers are documenting cases of MS diagnosed subsequent to head and neck trauma – too many to be caused by chance. While the link between spinal trauma and MS onset has never been formally proven, many researchers believe this to be factual. Some scientists suggest that the precise impact to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) – through whiplash, concussion, falls or blows to the head – will either cause the onset of MS or exacerbate existing symptoms. Researchers have discovered the link between cervical (neck) spinal cord injury and the formation of MS lesions (plaques) through MRI analysis. Some researchers believe that trauma alters the blood-brain barrier, which many consider to be a critical step in the formation of MS plaques. Some professionals believe that the trigger for plaque formation is isolated in the neck; that the cervical vertebrae become dislodged or misaligned by trauma, which can interfere with and cause damage to the brain and spinal cord. There are also those who state that correcting trauma-induced neck injuries may reverse the advancement of the disease. While more research is needed to determine the causal factors for Multiple Sclerosis, the role of spinal trauma appears to be an area worthy of further research. With over 20 years of experience as a specialist in the upper cervical spine, upper cervical chiropractor Dr. Erin Elster, DC, has published research discussing the connection between head and neck trauma and MS onset.

By John Gelert, LMT Having a massage is a wonderful way to renew and restore our bodies. Massage is perfect for stress relief and relaxation. It can also improve mental clarity, concentration, emotional balance, energy, immunity, circulation, flexibility, skin condition, tissue regeneration, and sleep quality. Massage relaxes and softens injured, tired and overused muscles. It releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. It helps athletes prepare for and recover from strenuous workouts. It exercises weak or atrophied muscles. And it can help mothers have easier childbirths. Massage is beneficial for many chronic conditions and injuries, such as back pain, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, arthritis, asthma, burns, bursitis, immunity, infertility, and smoking addiction. Massage can reduce stress, anxiety, muscular pain, migraine pain, swelling, cramping, spasms, scar tissue, stretch marks, post-surgery adhesions, premenstrual conditions, and dependence on medication. There are many types of massage and bodywork. While massage manipulates soft tissue to provide relaxation, bodywork is any collection of techniques involving touch, massage or manipulation that improves or restores health. These are common types of massage: Swedish massage provides relaxation with long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and vibration. Deep tissue massage slowly penetrates deeper muscles to relieve pain, recover from injuries, and restore posture. Shiatsu massage applies pressure (through clothing) to acupressure points to relieve tension and open energy meridians. Lomi Lomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage with long rhythmic strokes that disperse muscular tension, enhance circulation, and create a sense of balance. Many massage therapists integrate several massage types into one massage. Lomi Hanamana is a new massage on Maui that has long strokes like Lomi Lomi, yet is slower like deep tissue massage for better pain relief. Lomi Hanamana flows through all acupressure points, is as relaxing as Swedish, and feels wonderful! John Gelert is the owner of Lomi Hanamana LLC. He is an LMT with 12 years of experience in San Francisco and Maui. Contact John: 808.359.2020,

Bringing In ‘Da Light

By Holly Shantara The recent presidential election highlighted division in our nation and in our people. Some see this new change as a blessing, while others see it as a curse. Whether it is a change in relationship status, career shift, health crisis or planetary movement, it can be divisive. How do you keep unified when things are moving in ways that you may feel are out of your control? You get back to basics. Spirituality 101: Bring in the Light! To shed some light on any subject – personal or planetary – reflect for a moment on something you have concern about. Take a breath. Bring your attention to the center of your chest – the place of your heart center and heart chakra. Now imagine light from that center – the size of a pin prick – piercing the darkness of old fears; past hurts; corrupted, calcified, armored protection. Then allow it to grow larger into a brilliant sun energy that emanates from your soul. Ask yourself, “What is here?” What is in your center that is now being brought to light? Whatever has been eclipsed will now be revealed. Do you or your company or profession “light the way” by improving or enhancing your clients’ or customers’ quality of life through your products or services? It is imperative to unify what you most value with your place in the world, if you are to feel deeply fulfilled. Ask yourself: What is your truth? What do you value above all else? The opportunity to create positive change and bring things to light, is a choice. It is part of being “the new human.” The new humanity influences personal and planetary changes from the inside out. Remember that truth as you “Bring in ‘Da Light” and reinvent your life! Holly Shantara is an intuitive alchemist. She offers leadership coaching for “the new human.” For more information visit

Connecting With Our Essence

By Lew Abrams Reinventing oneself means connecting with our essence beneath the conditioning we have received. It means discovering what is personally meaningful and important to us. It means bringing our behavior into congruence with what we know to be for our soul’s highest good. This often requires ignoring the opinions of others in favor of listening deeply and being loyal to the voice of intuition. Many of us who have followed our star to Maui have been led here on a quest to discover and blossom more fully into who we truly are when unfettered and free. The atmosphere of Aloha makes it safe to authentically reveal our more vulnerable aspects and to try out parts of ourselves that may have been shut down on the mainland in the presence of judgmental co-workers, family or friends. Exploring new avenues of creative self-expression; discovering new forms of self development such as water sports, yoga, chi kung and meditation; and delving into wisdom teachings from different spiritual traditions are important ways of accessing deeper parts of ourselves. The quest is to find a mirror portal to the deepest levels of our identity. The bliss barometer serves as a compass guiding us to spend more time engaged in activities that bring us satisfaction and joy. Many discover that it is through applying our God-given gifts and natural talents to serve others, that we derive the greatest meaning and personal reward. Ultimately, we reinvent ourselves in each unfolding moment. Zen beginner’s mind, free from expectations, allows us to embrace current conditions and respond in novel, unscripted ways. With a balance of equanimity and compassion, we witness the unfolding mystery of our own lives and give thanks! Lew Abrams, Ph.D., also known as “Reverend Dr. Blue Mountain,” is a licensed clinical psychologist, organic farmer, sculptor, and facilitator of sacred ceremonies. He leads permaculture tours and herbal tea tasting at Ahimsa Sanctuary Farm in Haiku. Contact:, 808.283.8057.

Sound Body And Mind: Using Music, Voice And Breath By Mike Crall Have you ever waited with bated breath? Have you ever sung to soothe a baby? Have you suddenly felt a strong emotional connection when you heard a particular song, or when someone sang at a wedding? Have you ever felt tense and worried, and then breathed a sigh of relief? Have you ever exclaimed joyfully at a rodeo or sporting event, or cried out in frustration when you stubbed your toe? Have you ever felt energized by rhythmic music at an athletic club, or soothed by relaxing music at a romantic restaurant or spa? While the answers are obvious, how often are we actually aware of what’s happening behind/underneath the emotional experiences of those moments? We instinctively release tension with our breath and voices, more often than not with no awareness that this is what’s occurring. Medical research shows us that employing simple exercises to enhance the depth and efficiency of our breath is an effective means to relieve stress, especially when we are aware in the moment of the stressful environment or experience. Vocalist, composer, music director and sound healer Gina Salá says, “Throughout time, in all cultures, people have used their voices to heal, to feel united, to grieve, to empower and celebrate. Our voices can help

us to consciously experience the union of apparent opposites – Spirit and Matter, ourselves and other. Our voices are healing instruments, and instruments of connection, joy, integration, transformation, authentic expression of the heart, playfulness and beauty. Chanting and singing can let the mind rest in the heart, and help us wake up to Who we are.” Through simple vocalizing and listening well, we can discover how sound and music affects us physiologically, emotionally and mentally. We can use insights and tools to relieve stress, enhance creativity and mind/body wellness, and expand our sense of spaciousness in the midst of busy schedules using our breath, voices and music. Sharing awareness and experience of the power of sound, our own voices can bring about integration and balance of mind, body, spirit and heart. In that balance, wellness and love naturally arise and we are better able to care for each other and the planet. Gina Salá, who has studied and shared cross-cultural sound healing techniques, will be visiting Maui in January. She is featured on the Across Borders documentary: “Sing, A Healing Community Celebration.” She has completed coursework through the Open Ear Center and the Music for Healing in Transition programs. Gina Salá and Daniel Paul will be at the Temple of Peace on Friday, January 20 and Saturday, January 21 for their “Bhakti & Bhajans” concert/ kirtan and for Gina Salá’s satsang/workshop “Power of Sound.” See calendar listings for details.

Practicing Mindfulness

By Stephanie Garcia What do you envision for your life in the year 2017? Aside from fleeting resolutions, I invite you to explore your deeper mission, life’s purpose and legacy. What will you manifest with your power of intention over the next 365 days that will impact you and your loved ones for years to come? Numerous studies indicate that people who practice mindful living tend to have a greater sense of wellbeing, are more successful at work and business, and have more satisfying relationships. Mindfulness is the act of being consciously aware of the present moment; focusing on thoughts, intuition and bodily sensations as they occur; and listening to the messages they leave behind. Research tells us that concentrating on what we are doing, rather than letting the mind wander (even on pleasant things), makes us happier. This is the basis of meditation – focusing on one’s breath, for example, and being fully present – which has numerous calming effects on our physiology. Technology can simultaneously deepen our meditative experience and help the brain balance areas that are consistently underused. Neurofeedback (EEG biofeedback) is a cuttingedge neuroscience that allows us to drop into deep states of meditation, access unprocessed emotions or lost memories, and reorganize the structure of the brain; making connections between cells more robust. This type of biofeedback for the brain reveals psychological and physiological information generated from thoughts, nervous system responses, and interaction with the environment. The experience is entirely personalized and optimal for letting go of fears, enhancing the brain’s creative networks, and balancing electrochemical signals. Scores of research attest to neurofeedback’s effectiveness in treating a variety of conditions including epilepsy, mental health problems, sleep issues, learning disorders and addictions. Your path to wellness awaits! Stephanie Garcia has a Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy, and is an accredited neurofeedback practitioner.

Being Just The Right Thing

By Taryn Kama Do you ever feel like there isn’t enough time in the day to do what you need to do? Do you feel overwhelmed when you think of your “to-do” list, and then procrastinate? Do you beat yourself mentally when that happens? If so, just stop. Easier said than done, I know. However, here are a few things I tell my clients when we talk about strategies for marketing their healing businesses. It also applies to our personal lives. Instead of trying to be all things to all people, why not be just the right thing to just the right people? In marketing, this means targeting your marketing to the right audience rather than blanketing everyone. In your personal life, it means giving your energy to the people who are closest to your heart and who are likely to reciprocate your efforts. Drop the tasks on your list that feel “heavy,” or look for another solution that feels lighter and easier. When you are in the flow of life, everything comes easily. When you are not feeling this ease, it’s time to step back and look at what you are doing. Is your ego in the way? What can you let go of? This is the same for building your business – put yourself out there, but let business flow to you by just being you. Prioritize. Determine what is your most important goal. Build your tasks around it. Be specific about what you want to accomplish and make it measurable. Sometimes by saying “no” to the wrong things, you can say “yes” to the right things. How do you know what the “right” things are? Go by how you feel and choose what feels good. Taryn Kama is a Maui-based media expert and college professor. She is the owner of Go Get it Media, a business that provides media services, coaching and workshops/education on on-line marketing for heart-centered businesses.

Changing Your Lifestyle By Shalandra Abbey Oka Mai Iloko Mai – Health comes from within. We have heard this before, but what does it really mean? As each year comes to a close, we take time to reflect on how we have lived the previous year and what changes we can make for a healthier, happier new year. We may start to notice whether we are naturally more of a giver or a receiver; and we may want to find a healthy balance between the two. A new year inspires many of us to explore new treatments, or join new groups or classes, to achieve better health. Still, change may feel slow and people want changes within to happen quicker. They want to be a participant and not wait around for someone else to heal them. At this point, often people will hear about Reiki Natural Healing and register for a class because their heart tells them to. The Reiki Master explains, “When the student is ready Reiki will find you.” The student learns that Reiki is an oral tradition practiced since the late 1800s. In oral tradition students know they will remember because the master shows them from personal experience. The energy coming from a Reiki Master is very personal. Because students experience, they understand. As students connect deeper with Source and create new healthier lifestyles, they may feel as if a new person is being born. Their bodies are healing, and feelings and thought patterns are shifting that help them to start loving all parts of themselves on new levels. What lifestyle changes are waiting for you to experience and enjoy in 2017, to help you find balance in all areas of life? Shalandra Abbey has been a full-time Reiki Master in Hawaii and around the globe for over 25 years. She is author of Living a Life of Reiki and member of The Reiki Alliance, an international, professional organization of Reiki Masters. Contact Shalandra at:, 808.280.7704.

Am I Living My Soul's Purpose?

By Gayle Barklie Are you entering a new stage of life? Whether you’re in the ‘sandwich generation’ – squeezed between caring for kids at home while simultaneously assisting aging parents – or an ‘empty nester’ preparing for retirement, it might feel like an overwhelming existential crisis. You may wonder: Have I accomplished what I wanted to? Is my life going in the right direction? Am I happy? Does my life have meaning? What’s next for me? Although you may not realize it, what you’re really wondering is: Am I living my soul’s true purpose? As you observe your children excitedly determining their life’s direction, or your parents completing theirs, you may find yourself looking backward as much as forward. Although it’s natural to experience frustration and perhaps even resentment, this time offers an opportunity to reinvent your life. What lessons can you get from observing your parents’ triumphs and struggles? How can you reignite your own enthusiasm as you watch your children forge ahead? Was there a time when you knew what you are here for, but let fear get in the way of following that path? Answering these questions honestly can provide the impetus to look within and make some life-affirming changes. Gaining clarity about your true passions and trusting yourself to shift gears no matter your age or circumstance, can give rise to a shiny new second half of life. Most importantly, resolving negative repetitious situations and sabotaging belief systems can free you to live fully every single moment. Transpersonal hypnotherapy work can help release subconscious programmed restrictions so you can discover your soul’s unique blueprint. It can also help you find joy in any sandwich or nest you may find yourself in! Gayle Barklie, CHT, PLR, LBL, MFC, is the creator of Soul Purpose, a transpersonal therapy practice utilizing hypnotherapy techniques, past life therapy, the passion test, marriage and family therapy, and more. Gayle has been in practice since 1991. Visit or contact, 808.344.5688.

Reclaiming Yourself By Naomi Love In traditional cultures, shamans were the village healers. They held a special connection with the spirits of the land, the plants, and what is commonly called non-ordinary reality – the reality beyond what we can see and touch. Their service to the community was to support healing of spiritual illness, hold ceremonies, perform rituals, bring back home the missing or lost parts of a soul, as well as rid any foreign energies from the body, mind or spirit. They attributed many diseases to what is known as soul loss. Soul loss often happens when there is a perceived trauma and the soul shoots out of the body in order to stay safe. This is actually a brilliant mechanism; but after years of perceived traumas, fright or deep grief, it can become problematic as physical, emotional or spiritual symptoms begin to manifest. The symptoms associated with soul loss are different for everyone, and often depend on the trauma or experiences that influenced the loss to begin with. An underlying felt sense of sadness or grief, deep fear, or not feeling satisfied, can become the norm. As one of my amazing teachers says so perfectly, you are only meant to run on your own energy; if you have absorbed others’ energies, you will find yourself overwhelmed, unable to cope with your own experiences and emotions. Shamanic healing calls the spirit home; it brings you back to your true nature. In order to fully live the life we desire, we must be fully here and fully embodied, and we must remember that we are part of a greater web of creation. When we make space for the wholeness of you to be here, to be embodied in the here and now, we have made room for more love, joy and presence in your life. This is reflected back to us by the experience of deeper intimacy in our lives – the ability to truly allow the soul to be seen and witnessed by another – which is something we often are so afraid of, yet crave so deeply. So how do you call yourself home? It is important to make space for all of you. If you are not in a “safe” environment – a place where all parts of you are welcomed and received with open arms – then it may not be time to call yourself back until there is more space and room created. There are many ways you can begin the healing process of calling the soul parts home, and one is through ritual. Ritual is the opening invitation to prepare yourself and your space for embodiment of all of you. In the Maya lineage, we use spiritual bathing to support the soul’s connection. This is a simple practice of filling a bowl with water, gathering your favorite flowers and plants while holding your prayer in your heart, breaking them up with your prayer or song for healing, and allowing this infusion to rest in the sunlight for a few hours. Then shower yourself with the plant-infused water while singing or praying out loud. It is important to pour this infusion over the crown of the head a minimum of three times. The significance of the number is that ritual is the repetition of an action done prayerfully; this creates a different pathway for the energy to move. Spiritual bathing is intended to be repeated over three to nine days in a row. To be most effective, the bath is to be made with fresh plants and taken outside in nature. Many blessings on your journey home! Naomi Love is a medicine woman, healer and teacher offering one-on-one and remote sessions. She also offers apprenticeship programs and personal healing retreats.

Playing An Insane Love Game With God By Dr. DreamingBear I can feel the mother of all calling us in and saying: “Welcome home dearest, life can be anything you want it to be.” Again with conviction the Universe keeps saying: “Life can be anything you want it to be!” Just have the courage to forgive yourself for not being able to see so far into the future that you might avoid all those so-called mistakes. You can never lose my dear, and you can never be lost. And one day soon you will rediscover your beauty again in a moment of unexpected smiling authenticity; because really you are just made of stars, and all you can do is shine, even if you’ve managed to somehow convince yourself that you have a so-called good reason to be unkind. When you dance free of guilt it makes our Beloved’s heart happy and leaves the entire Multiverse smiling wildly like a child saying: “Wow, wonder-full, I love you just the way you are!” The body has its habits, wants and desires, but the real you is not that. Just let the divine rascal in you come out and play; no need to make sense or follow any rules. Don’t be afraid to spill out all your sacred vulnerable essence upon the floor of this moment. It’s all right for you to express in your fullness that same great power which created everything in existence and still let your heart be humble. I have a confession to make – I’m still imperfect, for there are gaps between “me” and this

poetry. And every time I start to feel sad or maybe even separate, I can sense my mischievous soul tickling me, leaping from the shadows of suffering and saying: “Ha! I almost got you!” And soon the sun in me is smiling again; because something wonderful, truly wonderful, is always happening just around the corner of your courage to look inside yourself. Don’t be afraid of your feelings; emotions are fire expressing passion within you, lighting up

your life with holy burning agony and delight. My prayer for you is that you begin to see beyond all your so-called blemishes, past those imperfections and character flaws that make your life full of texture in the end. Why keep looking for exit signs in the middle of moments that didn’t turn out to be quite what you’d expected? That kind of behavior keeps you searching in circles in a desert of seeming separation. Why not instead become that rouge violin who is always singing songs of sadness and joy with the same sacred vehemence! Your playfulness is praying for personification, so come be wild and crazy with me. Let’s become that laughing genie who is always granting every heart’s truest love requests, saying: “As you wish my dear, as you wish!” Then watch the whole hurting world open up around us and become one big love-fest after another, where there really is no cure in this insane love-game with God. Dr. DreamingBear is nature’s poet and mystic philosophical entertainer. Author of 10 books/ albums and creator of Lovevolution Foundation Charity, he produces Mauitopia TV show, Maui Mystic radio show, and is a performer of the exotic Hijaz Hang.
