Revolution And Resistance: A 1960s Revival By Mark Sheehan Have you heard the phrase, “History may not repeat itself, but it rhymes”? Philip Roth, a lifelong Roosevelt Democrat, lamented in a New Yorker interview that though he had survived the “limitations of character or intellect” of Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, “neither was anything like as humanly impoverished as Trump is: ignorant of government, of history, of science, of philosophy, of art….destitute of all decency, and wielding a vocabulary of 77 words that is better called Jerkish than English.” Looking back at dark times, we are inclined to question our vision and our courage. What might we have done back in the 1930s when the Third Reich was growing in power? How would we have resisted the Vietnam War? Well, this is our time to take action and there are thousands of ways to resist. With fascism back in fashion, take time to get inspired by reading Howard Zinn’s short essay, “The Optimism of Uncertainty.” Zinn maintains that while the ruling elites have overwhelming power and seem invincible, “[t]hat apparent power has, again and again, proved vulnerable to... moral fervor, determination, unity, organization, sacrifice, wit, ingenuity, courage, patience…” Another great read is Rebecca Solnit’s short argument for radical action and optimism: Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities. She reminds us that “we write history with our feet and with our presence and our collective voice and vision.” The Women’s Marches across the country started with a Facebook post from a Hana grandmother! Within a few weeks over 4 million attended rallies from coast to coast. Since then, 13,000 women have announced plans to run for office. (VoteRunLead offers online courses.)
The Women’s March on Maui resembled the massive 2014 SHAKA demonstrations against Monsanto’s genetic experiments. The growing public awareness and concern for how our leaders fail us led to a slate of Ohana candidates this past election cycle. While the four elected Ohana candidates are overpowered by the developmentsupporting majority, community concerns now have a much stronger presence as the Council enacts ordinances The Republican majority in Congress and in dozens of state houses is cause for alarm as the rights of women, minorities, gays and immigrants are being suppressed. As a result, possibly millions of new activists are stepping forward! In a Rolling Stone interview about the broad-based movement that is developing, L. A. Kauffman shares suggestions from her book, Direct Action: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism. First, know that protest works, especially where people are willing to be bold and take risks. Second, while big marches make headlines, small meetings with politicians can be very effective – even 5 or 10 people at a congressperson’s office. She recommends persistence. An example is what ACT UP was able to do for gay rights in just a few years. Ms. Kauffman recommends you have a
good time – effective movements have used humor, mischief and mirth to achieve their goals. Most importantly, she says that we must demand common sense from the media and not allow pundits and media moguls to normalize tyranny. She points out that people who never were engaged before are now motivated, and it’s happening on a grand scale. She encourages greater participation in party politics. That approach worked when a band of Bernie Sanders supporters went to the Hawaii Democratic convention to demand and get a fresh, more progressive leadership. Social media has changed politics all over the country, and dramatically in Maui County. When former Council chair Mike White announced his self-coronation as the chair for the 2017/2018 Council three days after the November election, hundreds of people showed up on January 2 to demand the Council follow county charter rules. After their demands were ignored, they began looking for more responsive candidates for the next election. Maui Tomorrow continues its battle to have water returned to 27 dewatered North Shore streams. Every week another event brings out more supporters. The Olowalu resistance to the proposed state seawall was very successful. More activists rose up to prevent insensitive handling of the Wailuku flood debris. Scan the paper; check your Facebook feed. There’s an issue calling out to you and an affinity group waiting for you to join them. Mark Sheehan is a real estate broker and member of the boards of SHAKA, SAFE and Maui Tomorrow. He filed an ethics complaint against Mike White. The Board of Ethics plans a hearing March 8.

Living In The Flow
Changes are afoot everywhere this spring as new life burgeons forth and a new life cycle begins. As multi-dimensional beings we are influenced on all levels by the powerful spiritual, mental, emotional and physical forces that surround us. How we choose to act and react to these forces, and the level at which we choose to align ourselves, determines the quality and makeup of our inner and outer lives, as well as the life of our planet. Now more than ever, intuitively sensitive people everywhere are being challenged to stay centered and whole, and to stay true to the truth and light of what they know is for the common good. Unbeknownst to many people, there is an inner network of light enveloping our planet that easily trumps all the outer negativity we are seeing. It is there if you can tune in to it – strong and bright. We humans carry the light of the divine within. Through meditation, visualization and prayer work we can experience and direct this light. We are powerful beyond imagination when we can connect to it and channel it towards enlightened action. If recent world events have temporarily disrupted your flow, in this edition you will find helpful tips from our writers to help you get your groove flowing once again. Lastly, deep gratitude goes out to our popular columnist Paul O’Brien, of Divination.com, who graciously took a sabbatical this time so we could include more of the articles we received. Look for his column in this summer’s edition. Enjoy the issue! - Eric T. Richter, publisher

Learning To Say “Yes” To What Life Offers By Liah Howard When we say “yes!” to what life brings, we are living in the flow. Of course, this is much easier said than done. To focus our attention on the positive, loving aspects of our existence, and to turn away from the irritating situations, is key to feeling akin to the current of life. Now, how do we do this? How do we master our minds, which are sometimes fueled by self-righteousness and self-will, and become the humble participants in life who are here to contribute our best? The answer is to cultivate mindfulness along with a powerful faith in the goodness of life. Many spiritual teachers who have come before us have left their imprint on humanity. They have shared with us a more transcendent way of living that can bring true fulfillment. At the core of the values these teachers have espoused, is acceptance. Consider the Tibetan monk, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who lost his country through violence and now teaches people worldwide about peace. His Holiness has stated that “compassion is the pillar of world peace.” The Dalai Lama is showing us that humankind can overcome difficult obstacles through kindness. Although leaving the country of his birth was not in his life’s plan, he has made the best of the situation and has contributed greatly by surrendering to the flow of where life brought him. Each of us is presented with situations that may seem too daunting or too difficult to handle with love. Yet, I know from experience that learning to rely on my faith in the infinite and divine universal source has made all the difference between feeling like life’s victim and feeling empowered to go with the flow. After my mother’s sudden death, I was horrified, angry and overwhelmed with grief. And though I understood that acceptance was the only answer, I still needed to pray for forgiveness to fill my heart for the doctor and the nurses at the nursing home. I had to move forward in my life and turn my grief into something positive; for me, it was giving to others. The divine universe tests each of us in many ways, and meeting those challenges is almost never easy. Sometimes it is hard to see the lessons and gifts in the circumstances that seem to be out of the flow, especially those small but annoying instances – the noisy neighbor, our always-late friend, the barking dog. These are the times, however, when we get to put into practice our hours of meditation and mindfulness practice, and accept with compassion this new presence in our lives. We must simply remind ourselves that we all are souls on a journey, and that people are sometimes unconscious of their effect on others. When we refuse to personalize the disturbance the universe has brought into our world and instead seek to conquer the chaos in our minds, then we are rewarded with more peaceful lives and we can rejoin life’s natural flow. Life may not always bring roses and riches, but by learning to say “yes!” to what life offers and by learning to apply the mantra of acceptance to life events both small and large, we open ourselves to the gift of living in the flow. In the gentle and wise words of the Dalai Lama, “we can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” Liah Howard is a psychic/channel and teacher of channeling and intuitive development.

Connecting To The Taproot Of Aloha By Sahara Sun We are amid a global shift. The collective conscious is gathering the awareness that our worldly problems stem from an absence of love. Awakening this love is essential to impart integrity, stewardship, reverence for life, and a united heart-centered consciousness. This is Aloha in Action. We have three ambassadors of aloha ready to join our hearts together to help inspire peace during these highly charged times. Whether they are building musical bridges in Russia, gracing Washington D.C. with aloha and peace quilts, or singing at the Women’s March on Maui, Lei‘ohu Ryder, Marty Dread and Maydeen ‘Iao carry a torch made of aloha. Its light shines brightly beyond musical talent and onto opportunities of global peace in unexpected ways. “Through ‘Aha Aloha, we invite others to share in what they experience – what they thought they knew and where they are now,” Lei‘ohu said. “Our vision is global. We are global ambassadors of aloha. When Maydeen and I were thinking of who we wanted [for the Ocean of Love concert], Marty was our top choice.” I remember when I first met Lei‘ohu Ryder,” Marty reflected. “I saw a child get beat up at Iao school. The racial tension was high and it inspired me to write the song, Love Everybody. We ended up recording the song with the children. It gives me ultimate humbleness to be invited into a space about the betterment of humankind, to uplift people into their better selves.” Born in the Bronx to an interracial couple on the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, Marty seems to have a karmic contract with his namesake. The throes of racial violence during 1974 made Marty’s mom, Inez, resolute that she didn’t want her children to grow up in a place that was racially tense.
Maui Health Retreats presents
“Marty’s mom was a visionary woman and strong matriarch who believed in peace and justice,” Lei‘ohu added. “She moved to Maui on a whim with four kids, 300 dollars and wheelbarrows of faith.” After winning a watercolor competition his senior year in high school, Marty was selected to help create a mural painting in Moscow. The intention was to bring the gift of aloha to the children. Standing in the uncomfortable silence before a cold reception of 2,000 Russian students, Marty saw a guitar behind the stage. He began playing Twist and Shout. One song changed the hearts of an entire auditorium. “The music toppled the language barrier and ideology,” Marty said. “I thought, ‘this is way bigger than painting.’ It was a defining moment in my life.” Marty has been using music to unite hearts in peace and joy ever since. As their stories carried us all over the world, it became clear – they have an ulterior motive for global change. Many are seeking a way to be in service to help save our planet and humanity. Perhaps the first step is joining in community with the shared vision of aloha. “It is time for the huli – the shift. It is not about us being gurus; it is about all of us connecting to the taproot of aloha,” Maydeen said. Aha Aloha, Ocean of Love gatherings have become an offering from Lei‘ohu and Maydeen to awaken a torch in the heart of humanity. You can join Lei‘ohu, Marty and Maydeen to honor the light we all share. This may be the medicine we need to inspire change in our own little worlds, so that together we co-create a new humanity for this planet. Aha Aloha, Ocean of Love II gathering, Sunday, March 12 with Marty Dread, Lei‘ohu Ryder and Maydeen ‘Iao. Makawao Union Church, 7:00 p.m. Get ready for na’auao, talk story, pule, hula, and music made with aloha. Visit www.alohainaction.com for ticket information.

Coming Into Presence And Flow
By Ann Paquin In the present moment, we have true freedom to make expansive choices from love. Regular mindfulness and presence practices bring us into the present moment. Yet, stress from life’s challenges can take us back out and into conditioned reactions. How do we recognize when we’ve left presence? How do we increase our ability to respond to what’s happening, rather than react? Is it possible to sustainably live in the moment and enjoy living in the flow? An enlightening map and guide for transformation and flow is the comprehensive Enneagram system. This system includes both ancient wisdom and modern psychology. Enneagram wisdom originated to answer essential questions of how we leave presence and our connection with the Divine. To help us come back to presence, studies were made that identified nine distinct personality patterns of thought, feelings and behaviors when we are not present. These “normal” patterns are highly repetitive, kicking us out of our flow more often than guiding us back in. It can be surprising to experience how much we are run by our egoic conditioning and agenda! Guided by our ego’s self concept is very limiting. The ego agenda includes disowning or rejecting aspects of human capacities that feel contradictory. As a peacemaker (type 9), I may reject assertiveness, intensity and strong emotion. As a challenger (type 8), I may find vulnerability or softness as weak and unnecessary. On autopilot, we are unable to access our full range of capacities, and we don’t know that we don’t know this. Our ego limitations and fear contribute to disappointing life outcomes, leaving us feeling frustrated or victimized. The Enneagram provides awareness and helpful insights to practice coming back into presence and flow. This deepening of our Divine connection improves our capacities, confidence and life outcomes. Ann, intuitive soul coach and Enneagram teacher, will present Enneagram Improv at the International Enneagram Global Conference in San Antonio July 2017. Enneagram meetup groups ongoing in Kihei.

Exploring Sound And Healing
By Karen Meece It all started with my swollen knees. I could walk only with assistance. And to be honest, I had become a complaining, cranky, older-by-the-minute person, making my friends scatter. We learn a lot about ourselves when we are in pain! But now things have changed. My friend introduced me to the most wonderful healing device that, I was told, would provide relief for pain and trauma without the use of drugs or invasive treatments. When I first learned of it, I was doubtful and hopeful at the same time. Once I received the device I placed it between my knees at 4 p.m. and kept it there until the next morning. Amazingly, after almost three weeks of not walking, I was walking again and the swelling was way down. Two years later my knees are fine! My friend and I then met Richard Lee, inventor of the device, in San Diego. He had just released a new product that addressed traumatized cells. I had experienced a rotten childhood – fear for my life and a lot of ugly stuff that contributed to my personality becoming defensive and reactive. I knew my nature was kind and loving, but those qualities had a difficult time expressing through all the muck and mire of reactivity. The new device was recommended to work in three to four fiveminute sessions. I experienced a level of peace my mind and body have never known. Things that used to trigger me, I can simply observe now. Intense emotional issues don’t upset me or exhaust me. The off-and-on depression has not returned. I am forever grateful for Richard Lee’s inventions! A free lecture – ‘Frequency of Human Consciousness’ – will take place 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 26 at Temple of Peace, 575 Haiku Road. Richard Lee, research scientist, will speak on how sound can influence human consciousness to reduce inflammation, anxiety, suffering and trauma.

Sharing Droplets Of Grace: Pioneering Kirtan Legend Jai Uttal By Sahara Sun Whether Jai Uttal shares his inspirational music on Maui or in San Quentin State Prison, he is devoted to express the divine through his passionate, wise heart. The launch of his 18th album – Roots! Rock! Rama! – celebrates the practice of kirtan as the roots of his life, the rock that is his foundation, and his devotion to Rama (God). In April, this influential pioneer of the kirtan music movement will join Maui attendees for an enthralling weekend workshop and concert with dance and love songs to the universe. Kirtan is devotional singing in the Hindu tradition. On his website, Jai explains, “Kirtan is a vessel that can hold love, longing, union, separation, lust, despair, mourning, anger, hate, sadness, ecstasy, and oneness. Powered by the fire of these emotions, the chants of Bhakti become like a ship, singing us to the other shore. In lightness, in darkness, in despair, in joy we sing the names — The Name — and turn our human hearts toward the One, who is closer to us than our own breath. Kirtan is food for the spirit, a life raft of song.” When I heard that Jai brings kirtan into the state prison, I thought about how quickly we can lose our personal freedom with an accident, a medical diagnosis, or perceived mistake. I asked him about the stark contrast he must see between those who live freely in magical places such as Maui and those confined behind bars. “When I go to San Quentin or any place like it, initially the energy is completely different than anywhere else,” he replied. “They have committed very violent crimes and are cut off from having life experiences. I have so much personal freedom and the luxury to simply watch a deer out my window. These guys have lost their external freedom and because of that they have turned inward and come thirsty for the spiritual practices. They don’t take droplets of grace for granted.”

I commented that this illusory loss of freedom could be the greatest gift guiding someone to realize we are all One. Jai replied, “I don’t feel we are all one in the same. ‘I am the river, make me the sea’ is a beautiful chant. We are all beautiful unique rivers, going to the feet of God discovering our unique relationship. These days it feels important to unite our energies and work together. We all have that same place in our hearts.” Jai Uttal experienced synchronistic miracles that allowed him to record Roots! Rock! Rama! when he didn’t think he had the finances to do so. “It was a very grounded realization that I was supported by the universe and that has happened only one other time in my life.” That ‘other time’ led Jai to his now wife and their son. “I need to remember those times. I can forget gratitude, how taken care of I am, and how much grace there is.” Jai explained that the mantras were given to human beings by the rishis, the enlightened ancient sages many centuries ago. “I feel I am part of this ancient lineage and the practice is inherently transformational. Kirtan can be fun, but at a deeper level it transforms the heart and the inner workings of the human being.” Our conversation danced in droplets of grace, leading us into our own heart center. He said, “When we come together to chant mantras, there are moments where I feel in everyone that longing heart space to remember our connection to God. That happens in Barcelona, at a prison, at the yoga studio; and it happens on Maui.” Help celebrate and experience Jai Uttal’s new album live, at Makawao Union Church, Friday, April 14 at 7:00 p.m.; and the Awakening Bhakti Workshop: A celebration of Divine and Human Love, Saturday, April 15 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Visit JaiUttal.com for registration details.

Changing Life’s Direction By Rich Ralston Our souls come into this world with a blueprint of ambitions, and they are usually expressed in our heart’s desires. Our desires will change as we grow and mature. Many of us learn what we want by discovering what we don’t want in life. We find our soul’s desire through a process of elimination. The key is to learn from the times when we choose a misdirected path. Our experiences in life serve as lessons for our souls. I view many of our unpleasant experiences as misdirected events that can help us figure out which direction we need to travel in to fulfill our soul’s destiny. Many people go through life bouncing from one misguided experience to another, being controlled by other people’s desires and expectations for them. They have given their power to others, and may no longer know what they want for themselves. Often they become wrapped up in living a life of mediocrity, and are not even conscious that they have a choice to elect a different path to explore. Their misery becomes their comfort zone. When we begin to feel trapped and uncomfortable in our situation, it is a sign that our soul is rebelling. We must be willing to step out of our comfort zone – to act and break free – to become the person we desire to be. This takes courage and determination. If you have found yourself in this situation and want to reclaim your power and free your soul, many energy workers on this island can help clear and support you. Don’t be afraid to try. Rich Ralston is a clairvoyant energy worker and healer. His abilities include chakra clearing, releasing energy blockages, energy release instruction, past life karma clearing, and communication with souls of the dead as well as crossing them over.

Going With The Flow
By Lew Abrams Going with the flow is an attitude; a choice to embrace whatever life brings and to accept it all as part of the ‘great perfection.’ This is much easier in retrospect than in real time. Hindsight often reveals that what seemed like bad news or loss at the time, in retrospect, turned out to be a valuable learning opportunity. As we come to see that whichever fork in the road we select will lead us where we are meant to go, we can relax and trust our gut feelings. Going with the flow means observing the subtle currents of energy, jumping in with discernment, and allowing ourselves to be carried along by the flow of the Tao. Of course, there are key exceptions when going with the flow would be colluding with injustice or oppression. At such times, our conscience may demand that we stand up, speak out and take action. Equanimity is useful as we navigate the waterways of interpersonal dramas. Very few challenging situations are important enough to give up our peace. Ultimately, we are the narrators of our own personal journey through consciousness, and it is how we interpret and make meaning of events that determines the quality of our experience. Rather than retelling old stories or indulging in ungrounded fantasies about the future, the game is to attune to the exquisite beauty of things as they are in the moment, leaning into challenges with gusto and counting our blessings. When we recognize that the flowing twists and turns of life are all part of the unfolding maha leela, or divine play, each moment becomes a sacred gift. Dr. Lew Abrams, also known as Blue Mountain, is a licensed clinical psychologist, interfaith minister, organic farmer, sculptor, and host of sacred circles.

Coming Alive Amongst Dis-ease By Jenny Grace Shaw The alarm rings as scheduled, but only to be asked to give her just a few more minutes; she is not yet ready to greet the new day. The truth is, she never really feels ready. “If only I could stay asleep for just one more hour,” she thinks. “Who am I kidding,” another voice replies. “If only I could stay asleep forever,” is what she is really thinking. She demands her body and spirit to shut down and just do what it’s told, for there are no choices anymore. Rolling out of bed, stumbling to the bathroom almost zombielike, the old familiar routine takes over any potential new thoughts or actions. “Oh, here we go again,” a callous voice chimes in as she faces the very worst part of her morning once again. She sees her reflection staring right back at her just as it did
several hours before. Despite a deep-seated hope for her reflection to be of someone else, nothing has changed. It is still of her. The ‘dis-eased’ girl haunts her every move, every thought. “I can’t stand you,” she hears as the tears well up in her eyes. “You’re just a needy, fat, ugly, stupid loser with an illness that you should be able to get over! What’s the matter with you?” The voice stings and her whole body grips on to the counter so as not to collapse from the beating. You might think this would never be the truth of someone who is suffering from an illness that is not their fault, but it is. In my experience, it is much more common than not. Hence, the additional trauma that comes with a diagnosis of chronic, life-altering and lifethreatening disease. In addition, the more the disease is not ‘recognized’ or truly ‘known’ about, the worse the beating. Why is it that we have this hypocritical yet socially acceptable dynamic around illnesses when the main truth is always the same – the person is suffering, did not ask for this disease, and deserves unconditional patience, compassion, validation and respect? Being diagnosed with a chronic disease can be traumatizing in itself. The more fear and judgment from without, the more shame, depression and anxiety within. Though it may seem hard to swallow, the truth is that there are many beautiful, brilliant, brave spirits out there facing a disease and surrounded by shaming, blaming and abandonment. It’s as if the world is stating, unofficially, “these diseases are acceptable and we have plenty of compassion for you, but these others are your fault and you’re on your own.” In other words, unless your illness fits the category for deserving attention and compassion, just get over it or don’t bother me with it. If this sounds overly dramatic or difficult to swallow, I agree. It is within all of this unnecessary anguish that one can find a strong antidote – selflove. Dear ones, if you are battling a chronic illness – whether it is cancer, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, addiction, an eating disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder (just to name a few) – you are always deserving of safe, healthy, integrative, supportive, compassionate attention. The hardest yet most profound gift of our diagnoses just might be that we truly discover who has our back. We all have a dis-ease and we all have a name. Just love.

She is passionate about sharing an integrative holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Jenny would love to hear from you.

Unblocking A Home’s Energy By Cathleen McCandless After 20 years as a feng shui consultant, I’m still amazed at the changes feng shui has made in my life and in the lives of my clients. Feng shui is the study of the environment and how it affects people. It was developed at about the same time in history as acupuncture. The ancient Chinese knew that there were invisible lines of energy moving through the human body and through the earth. They observed that by stimulating these lines, positive, healthy energy flowed more easily. Unlike needles used in acupuncture, feng shui employs a careful balance of elements placed on specific points to help the energy in a building flow freely. When a building’s energy is optimized, it affects the lives of the people who live and work there. Feng shui can quickly and sometimes dramatically shift the energy in one’s home and business space, and in turn in one’s life. As with acupuncture, for best results it’s good to hire an expert. In the meantime you can get the energy in your space flowing by removing anything you don’t want, love, need or use; then giving your home a really deep cleaning. Afterwards you can implement your feng shui changes. By doing so, you’ve released the old energy and are ready to welcome the new. It’s unrealistic to assume that feng shui will solve all your life’s problems, but one thing I know for sure is that when done properly, it seems to bring us more quickly and easily to where we need to be for our highest good. As with much of life, the results you experience are a direct result of the energy you put into it. It may not be easy, but it’s definitely worth it! Cathleen McCandless is an internationally-known feng shui expert and author of the #1 bestselling feng shui book, Feng Shui that Makes Sense.

Choosing Power Over Force By Joe Swartz, M.D. In Power vs. Force, Dr. David Hawkins brilliantly illuminates our lives with the understanding that the source of all power is Spirit, and the source of all force is the ego. That which is founded on power is sustained, but that which is founded on force is temporary and always meets resistance. C o n s c i o u s l i v i n g i s p o w e r. Unconscious living is force. The Declaration of Independence states that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.” This foundation is the source of our country’s power. This same principle was the source of Mahatma Gandhi’s power when he led the defeat of the largest force on the earth at that time, the British Empire. The Rolfing ten-series is a journey in consciousness, using power to transform at every level – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. Dr. Ida Rolf’s great contribution to the world was a strategy to change the structure of the entire body from the feet up. Aligning the fascial planes into their natural pattern – vertically aligning the thorax over the pelvis, the head over the thorax, and the legs under the pelvis – is the necessary first step for integration of the structure. Rolfing aligns the body in gravity so that gravity feeds it, rather than diminishes it. When healing is based on power, we recognize the divine intelligence in each being and that there is no limit to our potential to heal. When power is the means, the end is transformation. Believe in the possibility of perfect health, and you can attain it! Joe Swartz, M.D. has been treating chronic pain that has failed all other treatment modalities for 28 years. Dr. Swartz is an expert in advanced Rolfing, advanced cranial sacral therapy, advanced visceral manipulation, rehabilitation and trauma renegotiation. To learn how Dr. Swartz can help you heal your pain, call 808.344.0244.

Being Present To Your Life
By Tanya Gabriel One of the greatest challenges human beings face is focusing their attention on the present moment. Often, we are physically present but our thoughts take center stage, taking our awareness into the past or into the future. When our thoughts control our experience, we become disconnected from the magic of life. Imagine what it would be like if you could become more aware of your momentto-moment existence. How much more satisfying would your life be if you learned to practice fully being where you are? So often we can get stuck in ‘doing’ mode, with our minds jumping from task to task; and at the end of the day we may not even remember engaging in the events of our lives. Practicing mindfulness allows us an opportunity to connect openheartedly with whatever is in front of us. When we approach the present moment with a friendly and compassionate awareness, we allow our experience of life to become central stage. We improve our connection with other people and within ourselves. The more we make the time to practice mindfulness, the more space we create between life’s triggering events and our habitual reactions. As we breathe into each moment and make space for our whole experience, the mind loosens its grip and the stories we tell ourselves lose their power over us. The benefits of a mindfulness practice are priceless and easy to incorporate in daily life. In the words of Sharon Salzberg, “If you can breathe, you can meditate!” So, make a commitment to practice mindfulness regularly, every day. The change that the world needs begins with you! Tanya Gabriel has a master’s degree in counseling psychology. She is a mindfulness instructor, counselor, and director of group programs for Mindful Living Group in Kihei. She offers mindfulness training programs and free online guided meditations at mauimindfulness.org. Call to schedule your free consultation: 855.968.9731, ext. 808.

Living In The Flow
By Barbara Ensign, CHt Does your individual life feel in harmony with the life of the universe? Living in the flow creates a deeper sense of peace. It is knowing that you are in the right place at the right time, and trusting that the universe is a safe place and that it is supporting you. Living in the flow brings a sense of ease and wellbeing. Even though living in the flow is the natural way to exist, sometimes we need help. It is a skill that can be learned easily with the help of hypnosis. Hypnosis is a very effective way to work with the subconscious – to let go of the burdens of your past experiences and to make room for new experiences. It can help you be more focused on living in the moment, so that you live more spontaneously. Also, hypnosis can help you balance your life. Just as the sun rises and sets every day, we too have a natural rhythm. When our bodies are in balance with proper nutrition and regular sleep and waking times, it makes it easier to be in the flow of life. Being in balance makes our waking time much more vibrant and alive. Hypnosis can give you the skills you need to relax, avoid stress, and to balance your career with your recreational time. Hypnosis is an enjoyable state of mind, similar to daydreaming, in which you experience a wonderful feeling of profound relaxation and become very receptive to proper suggestions. You will remember everything you need to; and you will be able to reach your goals, no matter what they are, to help you live in the flow. Barbara Ensign is a certified hypnotherapist in Makawao, Maui who specializes in past life regression and life between lives spiritual regression. She helps people make positive changes in their lives. To find out more, call Barbara at 808.269.2129 or visit www.hypnosishawaii.com.
The Art of Letting Go
By Suzän Proia “People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.” - Thich Nhat Hanh “There is great Joy in the letting go.”
- Personal Mantra
Almost everything in our world has an expiration date attached. Our lives, our vacations, our successes and failures, our sorrows and our joys, our youth and often our relationships have a finite beginning and an ending. We learn to release a hot pan before we are burned, or drop a bag that weighs more than we can manage. Why is it so hard to let go of the rest? Hanging on longer than appropriate is unhealthy – like drinking milk past the expiration date. Ugh! It is not easy to let go of anything that has outlived its usefulness in our lives; it is simply a necessity to terminate and eliminate personal emotional “debris.” We must clear space for new or more suitable situations, people or opportunities to enter our world. There is a story about gorillas and mushy bananas. In the wild or in captivity, a gorilla will sit eating a large bunch of bananas and drag them around while hanging on tight. If this primate is presented with a fresh, firm bunch of bananas, he will not let go of the mushy brown ones to grab the better ones. Instead, he will continue eating the older bunch of overripe fruit. It is a parable for life – you must be willing to let go of the mushy bananas! Letting go and leaping into the great unknown can be frightening or exhilarating. How you choose to experience it is up to you. Happy landings! Suzän Proia, EPC, C.Ht. is a certified coach, EFT practitioner, and certified hypnotherapist. Suzän specializes in personal excellence; dissolving whatever is preventing you from being your very best! For a complimentary consultation call 808.870.8754 or visit www.MyPowerfulSelf.com.

Reinventing An Invention By Bodhi Be We are living in a time when the world is on fire, and we are continually encouraged to keep shopping and to keep track of our favorite movie stars, celebrities, rock stars and athletes. Our country’s children are spending hours each day watching TV, and they are glued to their computers, iPhones and iPads. Our social institutions are breaking down, our political system is in chaos. The natural world is on the run. We can think that’s not ‘us,’ but likely most of us can find substitutes in our own lives that fit this picture. It is time to consider our invented self and the wish or need to reinvent it. The invented self is an elephant in the room; concocted, to say the least, by our unmet needs and the societal pressures to control us and give us a sense of ‘fitting in.’ There is the belief that if we just keep ‘working on ourselves,’ do more yoga and become ‘better people,’ that the world will change. There is truth in this; everything is interconnected. And, too, there is so much work to be done by people ‘doing’ – to help the earth regenerate, to right the injustices, to make amends for what has happened, and to grow a healthy place for our grandchildren. It is clear to me that we will be most effective in any ways we engage in the work of the world, to the degree we are awakened people; so yes, work on yourself. Wake up! Come out of the hypnotic sleepwalk in which so many people live. Underneath becoming better people, taming the ego, and developing more self-discipline to get our own nature in line, are the underlying gnawing wounds that we’re still not good enough and there’s something wrong with us. The problem is the ego, many say. The self-discipline we must muster to tame our own nature is the same story the world is playing out to subjugate, rule and control all of nature. Without addressing these core wounds, becoming better people and reinventing ourselves is a never-ending project that misdirects so much of our vital energies. It often leads to self-indulgence and the thousands of thoughts we have each day about ourselves.
Perhaps we need to consider un-inventing ourselves – to realize that underneath our layers of invention we are good enough, that there’s nothing wrong with us, that human nature at its core is a thing of beauty; and to trust the innate intelligence of our hearts and our connection to the holy to show up for us. The work of uncovering where our fears lie, where we hold on so tightly, where we are constantly judging and condemning ourselves and each other, where the beliefs and stories we tell ourselves filter our abilities to see and be with what is – these are a large part of the path of waking up. A life lived this way, from the heart, in service to the whole, helps us forget about ourselves. Bodhi Be is a grandfather and father. He is also a teacher, guide and minister in the Sufi lineage of Hazrat Inayat Khan and Sam Lewis; an independent funeral director, hospice volunteer, executive director of Doorway Into Light, and president and founder of The Death Store.

By Douglas J. Price, D.C. If you’ve read most health magazines, most likely you are aware of your options when it comes to health matters. However, I have noticed that there is a need for more guidance in making it all flow. Though supplements, diet and exercise are important, how do those things make life flow? Before we do any healing work, we need to honestly observe ourselves. Despite having the healthiest of habits, some people will still come down with debilitating illnesses. When we experience disturbances in the flow, we need to look at what is triggering those disturbances. First, we must recognize and become aware of past unanticipated traumatic events that play a significant role in our lives; we may get triggered when we find ourselves in a situation or environment that reminds us of those past traumas. (For previous articles I have written on this subject, please visit www.germannewmedicine-au.com) When we are able to find resolution, then our lives flow uninhibited. It may take time but it is well worth it. As Socrates said, “an unexamined life is not worth living.” When healthy eating habits, supplements, etc. are not enough, then you may want to explore PEMF healing mats, which produce pulsed electromagnetic fields around an individual’s body. Using this mat can also enhance other healing modalities that you already may be using. For example, chronic back pain may result from obstacles in a person’s life obstructing the flow – i.e., when things do not go smoothly. Once resolved, the physical manifestations can be healed with the support of chiropractic adjustments, a PEMF healing mat, and other helpful modalities that will increase the flow of health and wellbeing.

By Shelby Molchan We all want to have a positive outlook, feel good, help others and spread pleasant vibrations into the world, but it can be difficult to maintain that happy demeanor when you just can’t ‘go.’ Constipation affects a huge portion of our population, causing brain fog, lack of vitality and just plain grouchiness. If things don’t seem to be flowing smoothly and you want to lighten your load, getting rid of impacted matter in the colon may be the answer. The average American is carrying 25 pounds of fecal matter in their colon. When the colon is impacted, the gut becomes a breeding ground for ‘bad’ bacteria. It is one of the major causes of leaky gut syndrome that we hear so much about these days. Matter stored in the colon causes the bowel wall to become weakened, allowing toxins to leach into the bloodstream through tiny holes that are supposed to stay small enough to block them. Constipation affects the liver’s ability to clean the blood. Dirty blood affects the brain’s cognitive function; this puts a strain on the immune system, which manifests as food allergies and chemical sensitivities, and spirals downwards to more serious illness. Also, because emotional Qi is housed in the liver, a sluggish liver impedes the ability to sustain that calm, peaceful vibration we all strive to achieve. A properly functioning liver is necessary for proper bowel function, and vice versa. Lack of proper nutritional intake and dehydration are the main causes of constipation, but medications and emotional turmoil also affect the bowel. Fixing the internal environment of the body is a process, and those who put in the effort can experience improvements immediately. Life is better when you can ‘go with the flow.’
Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness
By Amelia Couture Some things in this world can only thrive in dark, airless places – and eating disorders are among them. If you have had a firsthand encounter with the beast that is an eating disorder, then you know the silent shroud of darkness that envelops it. To roughly quote Chuck Palahniuk: The first rule of an eating disorder is, you don’t talk about the eating disorder. The second rule of an eating disorder is, you don’t talk about the eating disorder! That is why I am so pleased that the theme of this year’s Eating Disorders Awareness Week (Feb 25 - March 4) is, “It’s Time to Talk About It.” In a statement from the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) about Eating Disorders Awareness Week, they said: “It’s time we take eating disorders seriously as public health concerns. It’s time we bust the myths and get the facts. It’s time to celebrate recovery and the heroes who make it possible. It’s time to take action and fight for change. It’s time to shatter the stigma and increase access to care. It’s Time to Talk About It!” Eating disorders affect at least 30 million Americans and have the highest mortality rate of any mental health disorder, and yet they remain underacknowledged. This is due, in some part, to the wall of darkness that surrounds them. People who have recovered hide their recovery; people who are suffering hide their pain. We do this because we fear the censure of a society that does not understand mental illness. We fear the minimization of our pain as someone writes off
our struggle as ‘vanity,’ or the dismissal of our ability to be contributing citizens once we have been branded as ‘mentally unstable.’ Eating Disorders Awareness Week is a great time to check in with yourself and your loved ones; get the facts and learn how you can help. It’s a great time to talk about it!
Amelia is director of community outreach at Nova Luna Center for Eating Disorders on Maui. Join the Nova Luna Center team for an awareness week open house event on March 3rd, 5-7 p.m. at their Wailea location. Contact Amelia for more information at 808.283.7245, www.novalunacenter.com.

How Your Head Affects Back Pain By Erin Elster, D.C. Have you ever heard of someone who bent over to pick up a pen off the floor, and their back seized up? Could it be that the weight of the pen caused the back injury? Not too likely. In order to understand how an individual’s spine sustains injury that leads to back pain, let us review spinal anatomy. The spine consists of 24 vertebrae. The head, weighing 10 pounds, balances on top of this column. Having one’s head perfectly centered upon the spine is critical to distribute weight properly and to maintain one’s center of gravity. Unfortunately, one’s optimum alignment can be injured through trauma, such as blows to the head, concussions, and whiplash due to motor vehicle accidents, falls and sports. If an individual’s head becomes misaligned off of its center axis through trauma, it will sit “crooked” upon the neck. Then the spine will compensate underneath, and it will twist, bend and torque in order to cope with the uneven weight distribution above. Over time, a twisted spine causes excess wear-and-tear on spinal joints and soft tissue, leading to back pain. In order to determine whether you have sustained a misalignment of your head upon your neck, you can undergo an evaluation with a chiropractor who specializes in the upper cervical (neck) spine. This rare specialty, known as upper cervical care, utilizes two diagnostic tools – thermal imaging and digital x-rays – to accurately assess your spinal alignment. Many patients notice improvement in back pain and other spinal symptoms with just a few treatments. With over 20 years of experience as a specialist in the upper cervical spine, upper cervical chiropractor Dr. Erin Elster, D.C., has maintained a practice on Maui for the past three years. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Dr. Elster in Kahului at 808.866.6551 or visit www.erinelster.com.
Relaxing Deep-Tissue Lomi
By John Gelert, LMT Mother Maui gives us abundant feminine energy from Mother Earth. This heart-opening mana gives us life by flowing through our energy channels and chakras. But even on Maui, we can experience the stress of a hectic lifestyle, which blocks these energy channels. We feel it in our bodies and in our heart connection. Lomi hanamana works with this mana to open the energy channels, helping us feel better in our bodies, minds and spirits. Lomi hanamana is a new deep-tissue lomi originating on Maui. Its myofascial release work is sometimes compared to Hellerwork and Rolfing, but without pain. Lomi hanamana thoroughly treats the whole body in just 90 minutes, instead of 10 sessions. Extra sessions can help more. ‘Lomi’ means massage, whereas ‘lomi lomi’ means traditional Hawaiian massage. ‘Hana’ means work, ‘mana’ means energy flow, and ‘hanamana’ means miracle. Lomi hanamana is a miraculous massage that is powerful, yet gentle. Unique two-handed massage techniques efficiently massage the body in various positions. Each stroke combines strong pressure with the fist or knuckles to do the work, and light pressure with the thumb or hand for integration. Combining a series of these and moving slowly with the flow creates a painless deep-tissue massage. Long healing waves slowly melt stress in deep muscles to renew and completely relax the body. Lomi hanamana is excellent for relieving most types of back, neck and shoulder pains. It works well all over the body and is extra gentle on the face. This massage relaxes tension, calms stress, soothes pain, improves energy and posture, increases flexibility and longevity, and feels wonderful. It’s no wonder so many people say, “It’s amazing!” It seems fairly easy to practice and can change the world. John Gelert, LMT, is owner of Lomi Hanamana LLC. He has 12 years of experience in San Francisco and Maui. Contact John at 808.359.2020 or LomiHanamana.com to experience a massage session or to learn this technique in a workshop.

When Faced With Adversity By Holly Shantara Life is full of changes. How we flow with change determines the quality of our life experience. When the sun is shining, the air is clear, your body is healthy, you have money in the bank and your relationships are harmonious, then it seems easy to go with the flow. But, what about when something unexpected happens? Perhaps you get the results from a medical test and they don’t look good. Or, the love of your life decides he or she is not in love with you anymore. Maybe that nest egg you saved up needs to be used for a family emergency. What do you do when faced with such a difficult situation? Here are some tips that will help you go with the flow in the face of a major challenge: Realize you have a choice. We all have been given free will. Sometimes just telling yourself you have a choice in how to respond to a situation, will give you the feeling of more space to turn your focus in another direction. Reclaim your ability to choose. If someone is giving you a diagnosis or making a choice for you that doesn’t feel right, take your power back! You can make the choice that is right for you no matter what the news or what any ‘authority’ says. Reconnect to your higher power. Align with that intuitive voice within. Look to divine intelligence to gain great insights that you may have not considered. The path will reveal itself and you will find your equilibrium once again. You can always change the course of your life no matter what happens. Sometimes adversity is a blessing that will help you find an even greater flow.

Flowfulness Or Floundering?
By Gayle Barklie Of course you’ve heard the phrase “go with the flow,” but what does that really mean? Some believe this means not having an opinion, or following the majority. Others think it’s being ‘wishy-washy.’ I believe it means learning to roll with the punches, graciously accepting change, turning lemons into lemonade. It requires a deep level of trust and knowing that you’re fully supported navigating the tides of life. Most importantly, it’s a call to listen and align with your inner wisdom and follow in the direction of your soul’s wishes. When you are living in alignment with your soul’s purpose, you feel empowered and every aspect of life feels effortless and right. “Flowfulness” gives you the confidence that where you’re heading is the right place to land, even if you are not sure where that might be. Going with the flow may feel like you’re relinquishing control. Yet, imagine someone trying to swim against the current. Does this person actually have control in this scenario? By observing nature, you may learn some lessons about going with the flow. For instance, trees do not fight the wind that’s blowing their leaves. A river does not struggle to run away from the ocean. However, we humans paddle hard and resist our natural direction; then we wonder why we’re exhausted with nothing to show for it. Often we might fight our higher consciousness because what it’s calling us towards may not seem logical, or we may fear losing approval from others or being judged. I encourage you to let go of these fears, and trust the direction your soul is destined to go. Otherwise, you may always find yourself swimming upstream without a paddle.

Espousing Transcendent Relaxation By Dr. DreamingBear Forget about politics, religion, money; or about fitting in or being right. Rather, lean into the non-technique of transcendent relaxation. Different than meditation, this is a total mind-body-spirit release of tension, in an oscillatory surrender to the sublime. Most of us aren’t relaxed, even when we think we are. Relaxation is not to be confused with laziness or being idle; in transcendent states, relaxation is the flow-zone condition of existence. Modern society makes us live in poverty of transcendence; we all suffer a great wound where relaxation once rested. Our civilization has gotten on board a flawed vessel of accomplishment, and seems willing to go down with the flaming vehicle of freedomin-captivity. We are on guard about our every action in public, and this dis-ease affects how we operate privately too. In the myriad of condescending voices that dictate what is and is not acceptable, there arises an almost imperceptible tension, which reveals itself in a low-level anxiety whose origin seems a mystery. It is when we are able to circumvent the competing conditioning that our authentic center becomes accessible.

What we long for so deeply is the feeling of being completely at home with ourselves and our beloveds. In childhood there is a core remembrance of sacred space where we are completely free to simply be. Adults have a harder time recalling that kind of safety, or that ability to allow what wants to emerge; instead, they usually cycle between work, recreation, and those premeditated resentments we call expectations. Ironically, we’re inextricably drawn to the phenomena of dramatic events, which in themselves are a coping mechanism compensating for our fear of being unloved. When we are transcendentally relaxed, our thoughts are more intuitive; our emotions are fluidly responsive; our soul is satiated, slaked of the lust for belonging – because of absolute allowance. Once there is an epiphany-experience of being relaxed within, we can feel amity amidst the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune! Resentments, gossip, regrets, sadness – this is all behind us, and ahead is the surreal and ecstatic joy of pure being. This clear, unencumbered tranquility comes from alignment with the flow, and is at the root of every fully realized individual. This voice espouses transcendent relaxation as the ultimate spiritual practice. No doing, no thinking, no resisting; just being completely vulnerable, open and allowing of what wonders want to welcome us into ever greater levels of awe. In true states of transcendent relaxation, laughter emerges, tears release freely into joy, and the full spectrum of human experience beckons us to play with the tides of our life force energy. Now, utterly relaxed, we are capable of confidently embarking upon our particular path. Beauty inhabits the honey of so much tenderness sweetening every interaction. Fascination fills our veins, and we spill ourselves out onto the living-pages of life itself!
Softening Ourselves From The Inside Out
By Naomi Love You’re sitting on the beach with eyes closed, and you hear the ocean waves crashing on the shoreline. Your awareness goes deeper. You feel your body sinking into the embrace of the sand and you begin to feel fluid like the water – that felt sense in the body as if you could soften around all of your edges, around your own form to become one with Mother Ocean. This is the felt sense we experience in our bodies when we are in the flow. So often in response to life’s happenings, we contract, resist, tense up; and some part of us is constantly in a state of emergency. That internal contraction is a way of resisting life, of resisting the flow. That resistance often has a story attached to it. It usually says something like, ‘why is this happening?’ Or, ‘what did I do wrong?’ Or, ‘why does this always happen to me?’ These thought forms actually create an obstacle for the flow; the water-like fluidity of life can’t move through you because you have resisted her. What would happen if we brought consciousness to the internal contraction? What if we acknowledged the underlying fear or worry? What if we said, ‘I see you, I feel you, I hear you’? And what if we invited ourselves to take a deep breath and remembered the earlier metaphor of becoming like Mother Ocean? In order to live in this flow we need to soften ourselves from the inside out so we can navigate around the twists, turns and drops that life brings us. Now you may ask, what gives us the ability to soften, to acknowledge the feelings and thoughts, and to come back to that soft place within us? The answer is, trust. Trust in yourself, in the Great Mystery, in the Universe. Trust in that which is unseen and out of your control. This felt sense of trust enables us to feel held in the unknown. It enables us to soften around the edges of resistance and story, so we can fully be in the softness and we can fully be in the flow of life.

Creating Flow In Business
By Taryn Kama Living in Hawaii, we may be especially aware of the flow of life. The waves ebb and flow, the tourists come and go, and the energy of the island changes. Our jobs or businesses also have a flow. As someone who reads this magazine, you are probably aware of energy and its flow. How does this understanding of flow translate to your work as a healer? There is also a flow and a rhythm for marketing your healing business. I work with many heart-centered business owners – healers, teachers, authors, etc. – and one thing I notice is that many of them are so busy doing the work that they don’t take the time to map a strategy. They may often be just ‘winging it,’ which allows them to go with the flow. This is great, but you can also work within this flow by setting some intentions for who you want to serve and how you want to do it. In other words, by setting intentions (or goals) there may be more potential to help more people and to reach the kind of people with whom you want to work. Once these goals are in place, you can work on strategy for spreading the word. This also has a flow – i.e., placing print ads and making the deadline for this magazine, as well as paying attention to busy times and seasons and strategically making sure you have a presence. Go with the flow, and do it with intention and strategy. You may be surprised with your results! 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 and workshops/education on on-line marketing for heartcentered businesses.

Let’s Get Flowing!
Different Uses For Hypnosis
By Maurgana Stiastny We are beings of light and energy. We have meridians, or lines of energy, running through our bodies. When our energy gets blocked, we may experience stagnation, pain, lack of function, illness, or even mental imbalance. Chinese medicine is over 3,000 years old and is based on two opposing principles – yin and yang. When they are in balance, the body will be healthy. When out of balance, one can experience different levels of dis-ease. Acupuncture can help to improve the body’s function and restore its natural flow and harmony. It works by opening the blocked pathways (meridians) and allowing the Qi to flow freely. The life force in the body is known as Qi, or Chi. Through acupuncture points, meridians and energy centers can be accessed and harmonized. From a neuroscience perspective, acupuncture points are places where nerves, muscles and connective tissue can be stimulated. Acupuncture increases the natural production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers, and invokes the body’s natural healing response through various physiological functions. Acupuncture benefits the nervous, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular and digestive systems. It is applied by inserting fine sterile needles into the skin at certain points and anatomical locations. The practice of Chinese medicine includes herbal treatment, electrostimulation, moxibustion, cupping and tui na massage therapy. Acupuncture is beneficial for a variety of conditions, such as sports-related pain, menstrual irregularities, menopause, infertility, chronic headaches, allergies, hypertension, depression, osteoarthritis; and the list goes on. The best news is that acupuncture is great for preventative care. You cannot measure the tumors you never got because you received acupuncture. So go see your favorite acupuncturist to get your energy flowing, and feel your body in balance and in harmony. Maurgana Stiastny, LAc, MAcOM, LMT, has been an acupuncturist and natural healthcare practitioner for 23 years. Find her at the Quan Yin Healing Center located on the north shore of Maui, or call her at 808.579.8810.
By Michelle DeStefano I was buying a pair of shoes in Kihei and the salesman, Mark, and I struck up a conversation. He asked, “What kinds of things do people use a hypnotist for?” I thought to myself, “If one person has this question, then others would have it too.” So Mark, here is the answer. Let’s start with the official description of hypnosis, as stated on WebMD: “Hypnosis uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance.” It is this state that generates the ability to accept the suggestions given by the hypnotist to achieve desired results. I like to categorize uses for hypnosis into different groups: 1) Stress, fears, sadness and anxieties, comfortable births, changing bad habits, increasing self-esteem/confidence, healing the past, and more. 2) Medical issues of all kinds – i.e., pre and post surgery, nausea, gastrointestinal problems, pain management, high blood pressure, cancer, and more. 3) Performance enhancement – i.e., golf and other sports, sales, job performance, selfdiscovery such as finding hidden talents, academic enhancement, test anxiety, and more. 4) Past life regression is its own category. People have different reasons for these sessions and usually they are very healing and enlightening. Some reasons include releasing past traumas, gaining more insight on one’s life purpose, understanding current relationships better, and more. Because the mind and body are connected, a calm mind will lead to a healthier body. So I would also add ‘overall health and wellbeing’ to the list of many great reasons to use the services of your local hypnotist. Michelle DeStefano is double certified in hypnosis, and is a member of both the National Guild of Hypnotists and the American Hypnosis Association. Her specialty is stress reduction and pain management. For upcoming events or free consultations, please visit www.freeyourselfhypnosis.com or call 808.283.1003.
By Sahara Sun Are you ready to make change, but feel frustrated that it isn’t happening in the way you think it needs to be? If so, you are in tune with the energy of the earth right now! I am taking a deep, centering breath while change is afoot. The natural flow of springtime energy is shifting us out of the inward, wintery contemplation and into expansive, blossoming change. The birth waters of change is a force that brings movement and new directions – thawing snow and ice, swelling buds, sprouting seeds, and gushing new babies into the world. This same energetic movement is also a catalyst to blossom our own intentions and dreams. The surge of these birth waters is palpable, especially expressing itself right now throughout our political world. This mounting pressure for change makes anything possible! When this burgeoning energy is balanced, a natural expression of thriving is experienced throughout nature and the human body. Change feels effortless and the transition from rest into movement is almost unnoticed, like buds bursting forth flowers organically over time. Feelings such as anger, frustration, irritation, despair, lack of vision, apathy and depression can indicate an imbalance to our own nature. The Tao Te Ching, by Lao Tzu, offers a lot of guidance for this changing time: “Return is the movement of the Tao. Yielding is the way of the Tao. All things are born of being. Being is born of non-being.”
and female, output and input. There is a balance of Tao in everything we do, including how we traverse the great changes happening in this world. Tapping into the Tao, the energetic rhythms of the earth, helps me to patiently allow the unfolding path before me to blossom while simply being. A germinating seed swells first with the pressure of water moving inside, readying itself to give birth to whatever creative potential lies within the fragile seed. This is also occurring inside with ideas, visions and passions waiting to burst forth. Our own Tao wants to blossom in accordance with the laws of nature and our divine purpose. Frustration mounts when the perception is that life isn’t happening fast enough. These emotions are the equivalent of water building pressure inside to help move and birth new growth and change. To feel that it needs to be faster or slower is equivalent to preventing the birth of child. When the birth waters are ready to move, it will move and not a moment sooner. As we transition into Spring I am mindful of this universal energy that is flowing through all that is; and the importance of being, trusting that the divine blueprint will blossom in its own due time. We all are intricately a part of the shifts that occur on the earth, and we especially feel this during the transitioning season of Spring. The Tao is blossoming something in all of us, patiently waiting to germinate under the right conditions. Resist and it creates disharmony; allow and miracles happen.
Tapping Into The Tao Of Blossoming Change
The Tao quite simply means balance on every level. Allowing and being will return us to this balance again and again. The yin-yang symbol expresses this Taoist balance of night and day, summer and winter, male

By Rhonda J. Felix I am sure we all know what life feels like when we’re not living in the flow. It feels like there isn’t ‘enough’ – enough time, money, health, friendships, support. You may wonder, “Why me? I am doing the best that I can. What’s the matter with everyone?” I have been there. I am going to guess that most of us have been at one moment or another. For me, living in the flow means that my life is working. ‘Working’ means being able to pay my expenses (rent, electric, cable, car, etc.), having people of like mind who support me, and enjoying doing the service I give to the world. When I stand at a door knocking, and realize the door is not opening easily, this is generally a sure indication that the path of my knocking is not mine to take. So often we have ourselves totally convinced that a certain ‘thing’ is for us. When I stand in a situation that is not for me, I divert my flow of energy. I stop the organic circle of life that is always there to support me. Surrendering into acceptance of what is not mine to do is the first step. If it is not happening with ease and grace, generally it is not happening. This can be tough for the ego, but liberating for the soul. Take a few quiet moments and ask yourself, “Is this my ego’s will and desire for acclaim, or is it Thy Will?” When our energy is in alignment with what is truly ours, life is full of wonder and coincidences. Our life is in the flow!
By Joel Roth To flow through life, is to flow over our bones. Every day, we transform our bodies in myriad ways as we accomplish the daily miracles of walking, breathing and moving through our life activities. The miracles began for us as infants, when we learned to lift our heads, roll and crawl. This process of finding our own way came long before words. We were experts, champions in self-discovery! And the same abilities are still alive in all of us, available to anyone willing to take a few minutes to lie down and explore. Moshe Feldenkrais pioneered use of rolling and other activities from the developmental repertoire to awaken a person’s self-awareness and guide them toward the effortless, fluid movements that are the heritage of humanity. Our work today provides the time and context a person needs for the brain to make new connections and to discover a new ‘normal’ in ways of being and moving. Child’Space was created for parents to observe the process of their child’s selflearning, with tips and activities to support every phase of their baby’s development – from newborn to toddler. One area we attend to is touch. A lot of a baby’s information about herself comes through her parents’ touch. Starting with different ways to pat a baby (and to think about patting!), there is a wealth of variations in touch available to parents to support, communicate and play with their child. We also introduce touch that can help a baby calm himself, regulate his muscle tone, and orient his attention to himself and his environment. I am happy to talk with parents about the different activities babies go through and how they learn; as well as the classic toys and why it can be helpful to use them.
