How can CranioSacral Therapy help my life?

What is Iridology and how can it help me? It has been said that the eye is the mirror of the soul, and that it discloses the different mental and physical conditions of the body; we generally speak of the ‘vivid clear eye’ of the well person, of the ‘anguishing, glaring eye’ of the consumptive; of the ‘broken eye’ of the dead-sick. Various nervous diseases are disclosed by the decreased mobility of the pupil; frequent disturbances of the sight point to diseases of the kidneys (diabetes), as does also the falling out of the eye-lashes. By analyzing the iris of the eye, it is possible to determine the condition of your body by reflex markings found in the corresponding fibers of the iris. Iridology analyzes the iris of the eye to determine the cause of your ill health, in what state it is in, how it arrived there, how to free your body of it, and most of all, when you have freed it. To help you find out the root of your health problem call Iridologist, Edna Craven, DC, BCNP, BCI at 972-256-0004 / dreecraven@earthlink.net (25 yrs. experience). 10% discount with this ad.

How can Healing with Sound be of benefit to me?

Whether your problems are structural, organic, emotional or neurological, this powerful therapy can facilitate your healing on all levels at once. Its many modes include gentle manipulation of the cranio-sacral system surrounding the central nervous system, including membranes of the skull to relieve any compressions that can cause a myriad of symptoms in the head; using energy via the fascia to restore structural integrity of the body and unwind tension patterns; and using energy combined with positioning and dialoguing to release stored energy from physical and emotional traumas. Best of all, most clients enjoy a much deeper relaxation than with massage.

The Language of Light is a vibrational healing technique. During her expression of the Language of Light, Nancy is able to “catch” the sound current to “tune into” the frequency of your soul like a radio. This provides a sound-carrier wave for your intention to manifest. After experiencing the Language of Light, many report feeling more empowered, having a sense of remembering the essence of who they really are, and experiencing a sense of physical well-being. In addition, some clients have reported a lessening of their depression, an easing of back pain, a decrease in neuropathy pain (for about 3 weeks following one session), and a release of physical & emotional trauma.

Sandy Hanne, R.M.T, has helped thousands of clients change their lives using CranioSacral Therapy. An advanced practitioner, she has studied directly with Dr. John Upledger, founder of the technique. 469-4388634.

Over the last 11 years Nancy has developed an ability to express the Language of Light. To hear a sample of the Language of Light, visit the Holistic Networker: www.HolisticNetworker.com/videos. Come experience Nancy’s Healing with Sound at the Wellness Expo. Nancy may be reached at 972-424-1217.

What is that octogen-shaped image mean in Feng Shui? A foundation of all Feng Shui practices and analysis is the Bagua Map. This magical square contains the mystery and answers of the I Ching, a universe of information. Each sector of the octagon shaped Bagua Map, called a trigram, gua, or kua, has a magnetic direction, a number, a color, an element, a family member, corresponding organs body parts and body systems. Each also represents personality traits, businesses and industries, and is represented cyclically as these energies move in predictable directions over time. Feng Shui uses the Mysteries of the Bagua Map to analyze and diagnose a property to identify precisely what is affecting you, and how to make the changes that can open opportunities for a better life. Feng Shui specialist, Karen Ann Tompkins, has worked in hundreds of homes and businesses. Featured on channel 8, WFAA, Good Morning Texas, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, Dallas Woman and others, she also teaches classes and is a popular lecturer. She can be reached at 972-669-1595.

Why do I keep attracting certain types of people in my life? Do I have unfinished Karma or lessons with them? Past life regression is a wonderful way to connect with your eternal soul and learn more about recurring patterns and what to make of people who “show up” in your life. They may be in your Soul Group! Through hypnosis, you can access memories of past lives and gain insight into these patterns and people, which are key to understanding the lessons you are learning. And, once you learn the lesson, you don’t have to continue to repeat the situation! A good hypnosis candidate is anyone who is bright, inquisitive and open-minded. Just the fact that you are open to learning more about yourself helps you bridge the gap between your life today and the lives you have lived in other times and other places. After a past life session, one client said, I just feel lighter—as if a huge burden was lifted—I’m no longer afraid.” PJ Spur is a certified hypnotherapist, with advanced training in Past Life Regression and “Life Between Lives” Exploration, and was taught by the teachers who created Dr. Michael Newton’s curriculum for this important regression model.

What is CranioFascial Integrative Therapy? This therapy recognizes the importance of the integration of the fascial and CranioSacral systems and works to gently release restrictions that may be causing pain, or problems in the immune, nervous, digestive, endocrine or other body systems. Using a very light touch the therapist works to correct the origin of the pain. It has been used to successfully correct infertility, scoliosis, plantar fasciitis, ADD/ADHD, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, arthritis, and pain in any area of the body, including migraines.

What can hypnosis do for you? First let’s demystify it once and for all: Hypnosis is the natural state of a healthy mind. We are in that state many times without knowing it! The key is to harness what you already have to your advantage! A trained professional knows the language of the mind and helps you achieve the results you want quickly and effortlessly. All it takes is the willingness to change and some practice! Hypnosis is very efficient to change a habit, modify a pattern, manage weight, improve skills (sports, art, intuition, et.), trigger the body’s ability to heal, relieve pain, and manifest your life!

Nadine Romain, Ph.D. is a certified hypnotist with the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association and The International Association of Counselors and Therapists for which she holds the Dallas Chapter. 972-237-1626.

Today, young people publish their private thoughts, photos, and videos, in essence— their lives—online in blogs, media sites and social networking web sites like Facebook. Camera phones and handheld video make this process as easy as “point-and-click”. Older baby boomers caution young people on the dangers of being so open with their lives. They warn that certainly, future employers will “Google them” to discover their party photos and other, potentially embarrassing, postings. The idea that a private life and a public life are distinct is a concept that baby boomers hold dear to them. And yet, Generation X and Y and the Millennials have always felt free to share their joys and miseries online for the world to see. While former Pres. Clinton might proclaim that he “didn’t inhale”, our future presidents will have already shared their youthful follies online and no one will be able to “out” them. I believe that we are entering an age of “Authentic Living”. Our media already reflects this shift: movie DVDs are increasingly devoted to special features such as “behind the scenes” and “bloopers”, and popular TV shows are predominantly unscripted reality shows. We prefer the real over the scripted and the contrived. This shift, while so highly visible in the media, is also a reflection of a shift in our collective consciousness. Over time, the new reality of authentic living, a shift towards being real, will become part of our entire society, not just our youth. What part of your life is fake? Which thoughts, feelings and actions do you prefer to keep secret? When we carefully script our lives and show people our fake smiles and practiced lines (“I’m doing great!”), we live shallow, hollow pretend lives that lack integrity. We pretend in order to make others like and accept us. My experience has been that my friends, family, and even strangers, react more positively to my authentic self. When I share my true feelings, people react in kind—they can feel that I’ve taken off my armor—that I’ve become vulnerable and that it’s safe to share. It’s in this space that relationships deepen, friendships develop, and true love blossoms. Warm regards,

Tony Cecala

I

’ve heard Wayne Dyer say that it is more important to be kind than it is to be right. I have often thought of these words and have done my best to live by them, finding a great deal of freedom in living according to this value. Kindness definitely has its own rewards. It brings people closer together, whereas attempting to prove to someone that you are right about something often pulls people apart. When my children were young, I would often remind them that “two wrongs don’t make a right”. One day I even came up with the expression that “two rudes don’t make a polite.” It’s interesting how often people can feel justified in this type of behavior when someone else acts in this same manner. The problem with behaving in this way is that it perpetuates a downward spiral. It is only when one person chooses kindness, even in the face of another not being kind, that the downward spiral is interrupted. The other person is then given a chance to respond more kindly as well. Even if they choose not to, they are often able to realize that it is they who are choosing unkindness and not the person they are being unkind to. Also, it takes away their feeling of being justified in their actions. It really is hard to be unkind to someone, who is being kind to you, without eventually realizing that perhaps the problem resides within you. I recently finished reading Gary Zukov’s new book, Soul to Soul: Communications from the Heart. He reminds us that “the intentions of your soul are harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life”. He invites us to create authentic power in our lives, which involves holding our soul’s intentions. He also continually asks us to look at ourselves rather than others if we wish for things to be different. He points out that how much of our potential we realize is a result of the choices that we make. “For example, a person who speaks rudely to you gives you an opportunity to choose how you will respond.” He believes that we are given several doorways to choose from and that in each instance there is an optimal choice, which is to grow spiritually. I hope you will choose kindness and spiritual growth and that you will experience the joy that these choices bring.

Love & Light, Felicia Weiss

What is the Nature of Egyptian High Alchemy, And Why is it So Effective? by Zacciah Blackburn

E

gyptian High Alchemy is a path of personal transformation and illumination, leading to ultimate enlightenment. It is a practice fueled primarily by awareness and energy gathering exercises, which allows one to become more fully awake, and eventually sustain illuminated states of consciousness. Exercises may range from simple to complex, using some of the most ancient and advanced wisdom and forms of consciousness raising exercises in existence. The Egyptian understandings of consciousness and awareness are with us today, stretching into modern culture from their influence of ancient peoples around the world. Many scholars, for instance, are convinced the Indian system of Yoga and Kundalini are based upon the Egyptian principals of Sekhem (life force, chi, prana,) and the raising of energies, such as those known as the Alchemies of Horus. This involves advanced practices, cultivating life force within the Djed, or pranic tube and spine, and associated “serpentine” masculine and feminine energy channels, wrapped about it, to raise and join these energies for awakened states of being, high creativity, and wellness. The Caduceus, the symbol of modern medicine is representational of these Egyptian Alchemical traditions. The two serpents of the Caduceus, wrapped around a central pillar, represents the Djed and male/female energy channels. Though attributed to Hippocrates and his medical practices in Greece, it is well known the ancient Greek disciplines of art, math, science, and health, derived the foundations of their knowledge in the even more ancient Schools of Egypt. Some of the oldest medical texts in history are attributed to ancient Egypt, giving not only understanding of the deep significance of the human energy form, and how to utilize it to heighten consciousness, but also explicit instructions for surgery in brain trauma, and other advanced medical procedures. Alchemy, in general, is a form of transformation, of turning one form or matter into another. Western culture has focused on the Alchemists of Medieval times, in which it

Winter 2008 is said the pursuit was material based in nature, of turning iron or lead into gold. In Spiritual Alchemy, the pursuit is of spiritual attainment, to turn the dross, or lead, of one’s emotional and energetic existence into refined golden light. The lead is that which holds one back, weighs one down, or keeps one’s veil in place, from seeing into the pure forms of light and being, into the subtle realms of consciousness, and realizing, or attaining to, the Divine nature of oneself in living presence. The Medieval Alchemists understood this fundamental nature of consciousness, and pursued this aspect of existence in their work, called “The Great Work.” In Spiritual Alchemy, one’s awareness is utilized to couple the dross, or encumbrances of one’s dampened states of consciousness, with higher forms of energy to create transformation. Unresolved emotional and psychological patterns, and inadequate or limiting beliefs, which reside in our consciousness, keep us from seeing the truth of who we are, and our relationship to a greater existence. By learning to focus one’s awareness, with simple meditative exercises, we can transform our limiting beliefs or unresolved emotions to more fully meet our authentic nature. Awareness is a powerful tool. One of the first laws of magic is an understanding that energy follows awareness. This is the principal involved in intention, and the Law of Attraction, the principal of the popular movie, The Secret, but also stated by Thoth in his oracles eons ago. What we focus our awareness on, we draw that energy to us. Awareness is involved in everything we do, even when we are not focusing our awareness. The reality is, we are most often fully aware of what we are doing and what is around us. We simply choose to not focus our awareness, and thus, much of our energy escapes us or dissipates throughout the day, and through the choices of our lives, which are made without the fullness of awareness. When we focus our awareness, we tap immense creative potential. It then becomes our responsibility to learn how to utilize it. Egyptian High Alchemy has little dogmatic indoctrination, but immense focus on understanding the basic principals of the energies of our human form, and upon awareness exercises. Shamanic like journeys are often incorporated, to give the initiate (or participant) direct perception of the other worlds, enhance their spiritual development, and broaden their relationships to the subtle (pure) realms of consciousness,

and all that resides there. Intentional utilization of Sacred Sound is often used to enhance such consciousness exercises, even as it is shown in modern medical research to enhance wellness, relieve stress, and heal even debilitating illnesses such as cancer. Egyptian Alchemy discerns two fundamental paths, the High and the Low path. The primary difference is one of service and intention. In the Low path of Alchemy, there is not a complete understanding of the principals of cause and effect. Practitioners may utilize their awareness and powers developed for self gain, without concern for its effect upon others. Practitioners may cause pain and suffering in others, and not understand or care about Karmic repercussions. The truth is, we reap what we sow. If we sow wheat, we shall, indeed, reap wheat when the fall harvest comes. In karmic patterns, ‘next fall’ may be this year or next lifetime. So, it is of benefit to understand the principals of spiritual development and passage, in order to set as one’s personal goals those aspects of evolution which benefit not just ourselves, but all of life, and creation. By living even simple ethical standards, we strive for the greatest good for ourselves and others, without fault of judgment for the errors we or others may make in our pursuit of enlightened consciousness. It is understood in Spiritual Alchemy, that the intention of continually striving for the greatest good, in itself, can not only add to our “good Karma” by our right actions, but create the effect of burning off past Karmic debt. The Tibetan Buddhists call it “achieving merit.” Through developing understanding of our human nature, and working coherently with the creative forces of the Universe, we develop deeper insight into the nature of existence, create right relationships with all of Live, and draw in a greater sense of wellness and peace. We then can begin to bridge the gap into even greater experiences in our lives, and in the subtle realms of existence, eventually awakening into our fullest form.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Nutrition Guide to: Eating With The Season by Allison Ellis

Food—What Difference Does It Make?

People can easily accept to what degree the things they consume (plants, animals, chemicals) affect their mind/body when the effects are very strong and immediate: plants such as Cannabis (marijuana), coffee beans, and mushrooms of a particularly lively variety, are a few examples. However, people generally don’t understand how much foods can affect their systems when the effects are slower and more subtle in manifesting. This is for several reasons: simply unaware, unfamiliar with or having a dislike of nutrient-rich foods, or having a desire to continue eating foods that are counter to health. Nevertheless, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) food therapy principles, every single food item has an energetic property--warming, cooling, dispersing, etc.--that affects the body as a whole and can also enter and more strongly affect particular organ systems, creating great change over the medium- and long-term.

The Seasons—How Do They Affect Us?

Once again, human beings can easily accept how greatly the change of seasons affects the natural world. We all know that many trees lose their leaves in autumn and go dormant in winter, that many animals slow their activity or hibernate in winter, and that spring is a popular time for courtship in the animal kingdom. We humans, though, being so detached in our modern life from the lifecycles of nature, are quite unaware of the great impact the change of seasons has on our bodies. The human body and its response to the seasons can be compared with great similarity to a tree. In springtime, the energy begins to move up the trunk and can be seen in its fullest extension in summer, with thick foliage and branches laden with fruit. As the energy begins to retreat and descend in autumn, the fruit and leaves fall. In winter, the tree’s energy is in its greatest state of contraction deep in the roots. Thus, the energy of winter is storage. According to TCM, human beings also store energy in their roots in the winter, our roots being the kidneys. Foods and activities that trash your energy (we know what they are and usually engage in lots of them during the holidays) are particularly

damaging to energy reserves in wintertime. Winter is the time for retreat, reflection, and protecting energy reserves. So how do we accomplish that?

What To Eat In Winter

Again, if we tune into nature, it will guide us to what is best. The sun rises late and sets early. There is less natural light and it’s colder, so we stay indoors more, rest, and nourish our bodies. Fruits are not abundant in winter, so that’s the Earth’s way of telling us, “these aren’t the most appropriate foods to eat in great quantities now.” Continuing to eat foods with a “cold” energy (salads, raw foods, frozen or iced drinks) will tax the immune system as it works overtime to warm the body. A few results of too much cold in the body are dread of cold, joint aches and pains, cold and sore lower back, and frequent colds and flu. Foods that are too spicy (chilies and curries) that make us experience “warmth” induce sweating and actually release heat from the body and aren’t recommended in winter, either. So what to eat? Warming foods that strengthen the kidneys, blood, and chi (energy) are on the menu now! Include plenty of protein—again, look to what our ancestors ate, living with the cycles of nature. Fresh fruits and vegetables wouldn’t have been available in great abundance, so dried grains, beans, and meat that could be stored through winter would be eaten. What protein source and how much? The recommendation is to eat more now—not to eat exorbitant amounts of protein. It simply means that for the average amount you consume during the year, this is the season to eat proportionally more, and during other seasons reduce the amount of protein. Further on the subject, if we look to the traditional Chinese cuisine, enormous slabs of beef were never a part of the meal. Keeping those ideas in mind, your source of protein and the quantity are for you to determine. Of the animal sources, beef and lamb are high on the list, with chicken, turkey and salmon also recommended. Root vegetables and leafy greens, aduki and black beans, buckwheat, oats, quinoa, winter squash, pumpkin, and walnuts are foods high on the list. Fruits that are eaten can be cooked with warming spices such as cinnamon or cardamom. Prepare foods with warming herbs and spices such as garlic, onions, ginger, cumin, parsley, and basil. Salty foods have an inward energy (which supports storage in

the kidneys), so a little sea salt, kelp, and sea vegetables are recommended in winter. The salty flavor moistens and detoxifies the body, and in small quantities improves the quality of the blood. In excess, however, it can stress the heart and overwork the kidneys. Vegetarians should use special caution in their diet at this time. Eat more protein, cooked foods, and add warming spices and herbs to the menu. Fruit juice, raw salads, soymilk, and tofu are best avoided at this time of year.

What To Eat In Spring…

Come March, our energy will begin moving up and the organ to which we turn our focus is the liver. Foods that have an “upward” energy and that support the liver are recommended. “What are those?” you ask. Look for your spring issue of The Holistic Networker and the next article in our “Eating with the Season” series to find out! These are general guidelines for people in a state of balance and good health. Though season is considered, when there is any disharmony, a person’s individual constitution and current state take precedence over time of year when making food recommendations.

Rolfing® is a process for organizing the structure of our bodies so that we function more effectively. Over the years, our bodies react to trauma, both physical and emotional, by shortening and twisting. This intensifies our struggle with the force of gravity, which results in reduced freedom of movement, an increased likelihood of chronic pain, poor posture and a lessened sense of aliveness and self-esteem. During the basic Rolfing series of ten sessions, the Rolfer manipulates the muscles and fascia (a connective tissue) to free up those places where the client’s structure is constricted or held out of balance. The goal of Rolfing is to organize the client’s physical structure so that his/ her struggle with gravity is minimized. In addition to the physical changes of better balance, more freedom of movement, less stress, better posture and less chronic pain, Rolfing also affects your emotional, mental and spiritual realms. As you feel more supported by your legs, you view the world from a more secure position. You feel an increased sense of self-esteem, and the energy flow of your body is more opened and balanced.

Bioenergetic Analysis is a somatic psychotherapy based on a developmental, analytic approach. It utilizes active involvement of the body in psychotherapeutic interventions. In Bioenergetics, we work with grounding, breathing and character structure. Grounding relates to one’s emotional security and personality authority. When we stay in our heads and deny the experience of our bodies, we lose contact with our internal sense of support. Breathing vitalizes and energizes our bodies. Our breathing patterns reveal defensive blocks in the body through muscular constrictions. Breathing increases our capacity for feeling, our energy level and our access to pleasure. Character structure indicates the manner in which we limit the energy flow in our bodies and is indicative of the coping patterns we used to fend off the vicissitudes of growing up. Understanding our character structure gives insight into our defensive posturing, our personal histories and suggests a possible course of therapy. “Bioenergetic Analysis combines the work of the body and the mind to help people resolve their emotional problems”...Alexander Lowen, Founder

If you believe that you could benefit from either of these processes, or if you would like to experience in depth personal growth through a personalized combination of both disciplines, contact Chuck Lustfield, (214) 902-8900 • www.rolfingdallasfortworth.com

Chuck Lustfield, Ph.D. is a Certified Advanced Rolfer, has a M.S. in counseling, is a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Certified Bioenergetic Therapist. Rolfing® and Rolfer® are registered service marks

The Secret Ocean I

n a way, life is like beachcombing, as we search for seashells to find happiness. Seeking love, we carefully gather the treasures that we cherish most and when happiness wanes, we move on to collect others. We seem to forget that their abundant source is the inner Ocean; the only spring of true happiness.

Love surrounds us and it originates from within you. We do not need to seek love for living, in the same manner that the spinner dolphin does not cry for water while swimming. The mind has its idea of perfection and what it needs to be happy. All the while, we are the very joy that we are seeking. The separate self is the timebased mind’s attempt to divide and it will prove to be futile, since separation is unattainable. Its sense of lack is its own demise. Whereas Self-realization is an ease, since it is already complete. Fulfillment means completion, not a fractional part, and love’s completion is the discovery of who you really are. After all, a drop of water does not separate to be a part of the ocean, but rather dissolves its partiality. Desire inherently contains its opposite, which is fear. So while we are creating our personal desires, we are also creating poverty, greed, sexual obsession, power over others in the herd, and every form of lack. In other words, when we desire, we are also saying that we lack. Consequently, both seem to be created. If we are acquiring in order to be happier at a future time, ever-present joy will elude us, since it is not a future endeavor. It is here now, uncaused, and free of every-thing. The dual mind will prove to be ravenous for its desires, as it runs from its fears. Its bottom line will always be “more!” When it finally discovers that its treasures only provide a fleeting happiness, it discovers the root of its longing, which is the realization of the Heart. Before awakening, I discovered what I thought was the mind’s ability to

create in the seventies. I taught my students and later my children this miracle of creation and they attained their goals as well. Yet, the things and attainments simply came and went. In the end, something always seemed to be missing, so there was always something more to create. I did not realize that the something missing was innate in my uninvestigated assumption of being a fraction of Totality; a separate self wandering through life for meaning. Eventually, only “I” remained and its assumption of separation was its lack and longing. In the miracle of mind-creating, I thought that I was the finger pointing to the moon. In fact, I was neither finger, nor moon. In retrospect, observing was the power. It revealed thought’s mechanisms and its images for a deeper self-understanding. Ultimately, only the overwhelming fulfillment of joy sustained. The Heart is ceaselessly outpouring love. Are you looking from the Heart or from the mind? The space around “I” is joy’s way. You are welcome to continue collecting things to try to fill that space, as some sort of future compensation, but things and circumstances within time is not where joy resides. In the meantime, you needlessly suffer, while hoping for personal empowerment that at best can only be partial. Sooner or later, it will be recognized that the space around all of your accumulations is the direction and that it originates within. Essence is deeper than “you and your thoughts” and more profound than “your attention.” It is the pure attention of the loving Heart; the only omnipotent power of the universe: Love. So now, or later, it does not really matter, as long as you do not mind suffering and world hostility. I understand that you may still choose to cruise in a yacht on the surface of the ocean and remain oblivious to the charm of an undersea world that is

brilliantly colored with tropical fish. However, the silence of the ocean’s depth would be overlooked. You would not become acquainted with the beauty of the coral reefs and the underwater song of the humpback whales, whining in the distance. You also have the option of diving in to explore the unfathomable depth of the inner Ocean. Yachts are fun, but that fun fades and becomes no more than a past mental image. It pales in the joy of your ineffable beauty. Wisdom’s invitation is to dissolve like a sugar cube in a hot cup of tea. You may fear that “sugar” will no longer exist. Nonetheless, take your first sip, and see that sweetness remains. If you have realized that now is the only possible time in the universe, then as Rumi so poetically wrote, “Don’t wait any longer. Dive in the Ocean. Leave and let the sea be you.” The Ocean is the calling and it is your passionate magnificence! Katie Davis is author of “Awake Living Joy: A Guide to the Heart of Enlightenment” and will be offering “JOY Right NOW!”with the blessings of Eckhart Tolle, Power of NOW, at the Spiritual Fitness Center in the Dallas area during MLK Jr. Holiday Weekend January 17-21 with her husband, Sundance Burke, author of “Free Spirit: A Guide to Enlightened Being.” Katie spontaneously awakened 21 years ago and Sundance 25 years ago.

Do you seem to be getting ill more often, frequent visits to the doctors office, taking antibiotics or other pharmaceuticals more than you like? Do you have a chronic condition that worsens year after year, even though you are taking the latest recommended drug? Do the television commercials frighten you with ads about the latest pharmaceutical that has toxic side effects? Are your children out of control with a recurring illness? Has your child been diagnosed with add or adhd? Are school officials pressing you to medicate your child? If you answered yes to these questions, there is a better way -- it is called homeopathy. It has been proven to work for over 200 hundred years, with no toxic side effects, safe for the young and the elderly and the inbetween. Homeopathic medicines are the most economical form of health care we have today. Glenda has been in practice for over 20 years here in the metroplex helping and teaching families a natural approach to nasty conditions. Testimonials are available. Physician sponsored.

Beginning Meditation

A Language of Light cellular healing session begins with Nancy Byers helping you to determine your heart’s desire for your life at this time. The goal is to align your heart’s desire with your soul purpose. During her expression of the Language of Light, Nancy is able to “catch” the sound current and to “tune into” the frequency of your soul, like a radio. This provides a sound-carrier wave for your intention to manifest.

Ananda Yoga® Classes

Nancy records her private sessions in order to provide you with a custom audio tape to aid you in manifesting your heart’s desire. Nancy’s sessions have helped people to overcome their fears, to alleviate depression, to relieve or diminish physical pain and to realize their dreams. The Language of Light is an invitation for us to access that deep heart space of knowing who we already are - multi-faceted, spiritual beings. Nancy is available for individual, group or couples sessions.

Your Winter Stars by Cynthia Novak The great wheel turns and the long nights slowly give way to more and more day light. This is an exciting year for many things, but nothing quite as passionate and universal as the Presidential primaries that begin in January. While the election is in November, this first quarter is, arguably, extremely important. The Primaries offer a wide selection with the potential of a president who will make history simply by virtue of race or gender or religion. I can’t remember a race where there was more to choose from. Whether you are off to the left, the right or in the middle, there is a candidate for you and some say there is one for you in both parties. Will you cast your vote and vision for the future of the nation with a familiar face or with someone new? Will you step out of party lines for the best person or will you choose the one the pundits say has the best chance to win? Would you cross party lines for a candidate you want to follow or does the thought of voting for one of “them” send a shudder through your legs? This season we look at what we believe and stare into our fears as we reach for the future. The primaries are the most obvious example. You’ll find others as you move through Your Winter Stars. Get out your chart and see how you’ll feel the push and pull of choice. The desire to be a part of the action, and yes, the service to society, will be strong. Many will register to vote, who have never voted before.

Mars and Pluto face off: Mars is the warrior planet, Pluto the lord of catharsis and transformation. These two faced each other through the fall. I told you that the potential for peace was strong. Look around the world, there are some hot spots, but for all the posturing most of the world is at peace. As Mars and Pluto face each other, and Mercury, the business planet, joins

Winter 2008

them along with the Sun and moon, we see who are allies and who are adversaries. However, that doesn’t equal war, but it does equal information. Mars and Pluto will spend 3 full months sitting across the table from each other. The action planet and the planet of destruction: The warrior who fights for a nation and the one who kills for his god. Mars is about service; Pluto is about destruction. I know these are harsh words, but these planets linger in lunar mansions that remind us that the world is once again facing the potential for service or sacrifice. Pluto lingers in the center of the galaxy, and sends his powerful bang out to the cosmos. Will He and Mars work together or will they split along ideological lines? Will you face these sides within you? There is really good news: if you had felt the pull to do something different or to make a huge change, and were just waiting for the right time, the first months of 2008 may provide the momentum to leap…even when you don’t know where you’ll land. Pluto challenges and intensifies Mars’ animosity, but he reveals the cost of aggression quickly. This could be a stand-off, but will likely manifest as powerful peace talks. Neither side walks away with all the booty; but when this combination works, hubris dims in the floodlight of what would come if he tried and failed. This only works when both parties want to carry on so it is not at all good for suicide bombers or petty thugs; it intensifies their drive. For ideologies, religions, societies and political parties, it is great. You see what is worth loving and fighting for, what you must keep and where you can give in order to make the most of what you want to manifest. See plenty of folks split into one of the two parties as they clearly see which side fits. This is true for religion, too. More than anything, it enlivens the passion of the individual even as he identifies his tribe. One vote may not matter to the pragmatist, but the passion that flows through the voter for a candidate or a platform he believes in is palpable. It makes a dark horse candidate a real possibility and discussions are lively!

January: Look yourself in the eyes: Should we trust you? Mars, the planet of action and service, is moving backward in the heavens. We look back on the past and see what we could have done differently. We look ahead to the future and see what we can do to help. We review the old plan

and adjust it. Mars and Pluto kick off the year. Around the world, even more than a football team, we feel the pull to pick a side and a candidate. The primaries begin and each of us picks our favorite. That means we must come to terms with our selves, what we believe is possible and what we fear. We wait to see who rises to the helm of the parties. Jupiter is powerful in the heavens throughout the year. He is good for many things, one of which is spin. Hold onto your spin detector and keep your self grounded. With so much at stake, there will be plenty of folks who want to turn you away from one and toward another. Jupiter lingers with Mars and Pluto; the spin master’s tool of choice is hyperbole and fear. Whether it’s the salesperson or the pundit; your challenge is to decide for yourself: critical thinking takes effort and reaction is a reflex. It is up to you to discover what you believe in. It’s OK to change your mind. Mercury goes retrograde from January 28th until February 18th and we get to review as we rethink our beliefs and direction. Better repeat all numbers and expect plenty of old film footage of what candidates said in the past to surface. Pluto is deep and hidden, many will vote their beliefs, but keep those to themselves. If you happen to have a planet between 4 and 10 of Gemini or Sagittarius of your Vedic chart, you are feeling called and ready to act.

February: Pulled Between Work and Rest: Eclipses are coming. There is a solar eclipse on the 6th. It won’t be visible except in the lower part of the southern hemisphere. Still, eclipse time is always dynamic. The Solar eclipse on the 6th is particularly challenging. The Lunar Eclipse on the 20th helps us put a structure in place to work out of the real or apparent mess. Seriously, Eclipse time is a great time to change jobs. Folks leave one that doesn’t fit and that may be the perfect fit for you. The Mars retrograde is over, companies are ready to fill openings and get moving. Mercury is retrograde and we struggle to read the big print, but may forget some of the finer things in life, like patience and empathy for the folks who sincerely forgot the meeting or your birthday. We would rather spend the 1st week of the month in a quiet lodge by a fire, but there is too much going on. There are some dynamic aspects. Combined with eclipses, the Market is volatile. Be sure you get the facts before you buy or sell. In the political realm, the race is volatile too. continued p34 >

Caution: don’t believe what you hear and only part of what you read. Sift through the data for verification and facts. Mars is moving forward. The plans set in motion early last fall, then sidetracked later in the fall, are finally ready to go forward. There are plenty of folks, finally, who are making up their minds. Give them until late this month to come forward. Of course, you could call them up just to check on them. Retrograde Mercury on Valentine’s Day assures there will be plenty of mistakes and miscommunications that day. Better deliver the flowers yourself. If giving more than one gift, triple check the cards. The retrograde Mercury period is known for simple errors and delays. Be patient with the delivery person and give your sweetheart the benefit of the doubt. He truly did forget. Be clear and direct when you speak from your heart.

March: Things are Moving! We begin the month with Mars facing Pluto for the final time. Rumors of change in Iraq make the news, but we can only have faith they cannot be confirmed. Take a moment to face your desire for change and your fear of moving toward it. This combination offers an element of surprise; mostly, it brings the end to a long project begun 6 months earlier. This month could signal the end to the primaries. It surely brings clarity to the opposing sides. Financially, we should see the dollar turn around. I expect it by the end of this month, surely by late April. I do not see real recession. There may even be talk of the benefit of home ownership even though it costs the value of the dollar. We start to pull out of the financial crises late this month and gain strength in the world. It is very possible that some of the peace talks made a difference. It is also likely that some other foes now openly declare plans for future conflict. It seems that some conflicts end as others some to light. The US economy chugs along in the face of global interdependence.

The Race: Clinton and Romney were front runners. They both just finished a year of favorable transits. At the end of November, that changed. To hold onto their positions, both will have to rely upon strategy and vision to stay ahead. It doesn’t look easy for either.

Three Republicans: Huckabee has great drive and a powerful desire to win. As I write this, he is gaining momentum in Iowa. I don’t have a birth time, so with birth date

Winter 2008

alone, I’ll go out on a limb and say this: He’ll gain popularity through the winter, which may get him onto a ticket. Still, he has some really tough transits in the spring. It doesn’t look good for him long term. But he gives them a run and may take the VP spot in the future if his clout is needed. Giuliani has a number of favorable transits that combine a mix of destiny and luck. He has charm, ambition and a past that will haunt him. He might make it through the winter, but if the time of birth I have of 2:30pm is correct, I doubt he’ll make it through spring. Romney has the most balanced personality of the three. His big obstacle is his religion. He is better at making friends than sparring for sound bites. His natural drive is strong, but only a strange mix of events will win him the nomination. He will come out with surprises through this season. We haven’t seen Romney hit his stride yet. If he does get the nomination, he’ll be the best contender against the Dems. He even has very favorable aspects in January 2009. It’s a long year ahead. What does this all mean? None of these three has an easy or clear path to the nomination. It should be exciting; perhaps there will still be another contender.

his friends are helping.) Clinton has the most intense and combative chart of the three. She is considered the front runner and will feed the hungry crowd what it wants in terms of sound bites and jabs at her competition. Her time of birth is also unknown. She has given at least 2 different times to different people. Again, I’m just using the date. She has very few lucky transits this year. Not at all like last year. It will take great effort to stay ahead. But, she has been known to exert great effort for a goal. The front runner is pulling out of her best or at least easiest time. Hmm…could it be Obama and Edwards on the same ticket or will it be someone else?

The Democrats: Right now it looks like

quarter marks the end of a 6 month, volatile period. The Market and the dollar steady. It may be a recession, but not a deep one and the dollar works its way back. In the meantime, expect plenty of foreign travelers who take advantage of the exchange rate. Expect to bump into them at every tourist stop. Welcome them.

Clinton, Edwards and Obama. Edwards may be 3rd, but he has favorable and feisty transits throughout this season. He’s not fading from view any time soon. Obama’s time of birth is not known to me as I write this. Just looking at his date of birth, he continues to have the passionate transits of Mars, Pluto and Jupiter on his Venus. Thus far, he has taken the high road and avoided sniper-like comments from Clinton. If he gets the nomination it will be through passion, his love of the country and his belief that anything is possible. That message will carry him far and his faith that people want a vision more than caustic remarks will set him apart. (Of course,

Where the Love Grows: January is more reflective and cautious. We look for wise partners above wild ones. February is strongest for passionate commitment and confusion. Particularly after the 10th. Be clear about how you feel and what you mean. March finds us looking at the practical side of love: friend and partnership. Are you good at friendship? Are you partner material?

Channeled Messages From a 16 Year-Old Boy on The Other Side Shed Light on Life, Death and Human Relationships

November 1, 2007 -- Two years before 16 year-old Danny Mandell died from a degenerative metabolic disorder, his mother began developing some unexpected psychic abilities. She had no idea at the time that she was in training for the remarkable experience of receiving messages from Danny after his death, and the resulting dialogs between mother and son form the foundation of a new book called “A Swan in Heaven: Conversations Between Two Worlds,” entering the marketplace this month. What makes this account unique in the world of channeled books is that during his life this extraordinary child was severely disabled and unable to speak. But after death his language was fluent and his words were insightful and eloquent. Danny’s death released him from an eight-year struggle with a degenerative disorder that had transformed him from an active, healthy boy into a wheelchairbound teenager who wore diapers, was unable to talk and could not use his hands. He was completely nonverbal during his last years on earth, but within an hour after his death, he began “speaking” to his mother, guiding her to publish his words in a book that would have a unique perspective, not just on the journey of the soul, but on the subject of intimate relationships and the power of meditation and forgiveness to transform them. An unlikely topic for a teenage boy, but not surprising considering that Danny spent the entire duration of his illness in the midst of his mother’s emotionally -- and sometimes physically -- violent marriage. Against a backdrop of chaos and

instability, Danny’s message of personal responsibility, forgiveness and acceptance teaches that from a spiritual perspective, there are no victims and no perpetrators because all relationships are created by the participants long before they physically begin on earth. Danny’s perceptions of life, death and disability shine like a beacon and cut like a knife, guiding us toward higher and healthier ways of understanding ourselves and our relationships. “Danny and I had a telepathic connection throughout his life, but it was no different than what most mothers experience with their children, “ says his mother Terri Daniel, who changed her last name in his honor. “But as his illness progressed and his power of speech diminished, the stronger my ‘intuitive hearing’ became. I never imagined how easily his communications would come through after his death, and I was amazed at how detailed and clear they were.” Terri points out that as channeled books continue to move from the fringe to the mainstream, people are beginning to understand that wisdom from guides in the non-physical is available to everybody, not just to prophets, psychics or a chosen few. “It’s always accessible, it never changes, and anyone who asks for it can receive it,” she explains. “It’s simple universal truth, presented with no judgment, no dogma and no agenda. Emotional and spiritual education is available to us in many forms from many sources, beyond psychology, traditional religion and human experience. There are eager teachers in other realms waiting with infinite patience for us to tune in and start listening.”

In addition to addressing intimate relationships (one of the most challenging platforms we choose for furthering the soul’s growth), Danny’s messages also speak to broader spiritual questions, including: · What it’s like to die · How to reach our guides · Birth, death and reincarnation · Religion vs. spirituality · How and why to meditate · The true meaning of forgiveness · How illness and disability is chosen · Our power to manifest anything we choose “The messages in most best-selling channeled books are overwhelmingly similar,” says Terri. “Notable intuitives like Edgar Cayce, Jane Roberts, James Van Praagh, Sylvia Browne and Neale Donald Walsch have shared their channeled transmissions with millions, and the content is stunning in its clarity and consistency. They speak of loving entities who guide us from other realms, and they dismiss the fear-based concept of an angry, judgmental god.” For more information please contact Amy Henry at (541) 549-4004 or via email at press@danieldirect.net

Laughing Club Of India

Will Lift Your Spirits and Your Immune System

By Arielle Ford Rumor has it that the world-renowned director Mira Nair (MONSOON WEDDING, VANITY FAIR, THE NAMESAKE), was in Bombay, stuck in traffic on Marine Drive and in the midst of a movie-maker’s equivalent of writer’s block when she discovered the source of traffic was hundreds of women dressed in all white crossing the street. She was so intrigued, that she ditched her cab and followed these women with her DV camera -- some time later, the LAUGHING CLUB OF INDIA was born. In this compassionate and entertaining documentary, award-winning director Mira Nair has captured a unique slice of life in contemporary India…the Laughing Clubs. From shop workers laughing to relieve stress, to widows cackling to forget their grief and children gleefully giggling with their teachers; THE LAUGHING CLUB OF INDIA documents the thousands of people who come together foregoing their caste or class, to laugh for 40 minutes and to belong to a community dedicated to creating more joy in the world.

This delightful film explores the power of laughter through the popular phenomenon of laughing clubs founded by Madran Kataria, a jovial, energetic, laughter-loving Bombay cardiologist. Dr. Kataria’s passion for bringing the healing power of laughter to the world comes from a deep belief that laughing daily is the key to happiness and well being. In the early days Dr. Kataria would begin club meetings with jokes to get people laughing but he soon discovered that by just pretending to laugh or simulating laughter, real laughter would soon follow. He invented several different kinds of laughs; the greeter, milkshake, and lion. You have to see them to get the full comic effect. More than 1300 Laughter Clubs now exist throughout the world. The Laughing Clubs meet in parks, offices, private homes, community centers and rooftops, just about anywhere. Throughout the film we get up close and personal with club participants including Dr. & Mrs. Kataria, a stockbroker, three bawdy women, a musician, a widow laughing to cope

with grief, and two old men - friends since school days who meet daily to laugh. The healing power of laughter has been well documented and has been shown to boost the immune system. THE LAUGHING CLUBS OF INDIA will not only make you laugh till you cry and double over in stitches, but will inspire you to make laughing a daily practice.

The Spiritual Cinema Circle, America’s fastest growing DVD club, will feature THE LAUGHING CLUBS OF INDIA in the January 2008 collection along with Knights of the South Bronx starring Ted Danson and two wonderful short films. For a limited time, new subscribers to the Circle can receive a free trial membership (for a nominal shipping fee) by visiting: www.spiritualcinemacircle.com or by calling: (800) 556-0129.

Divine Union

Within each of us is the masculine and the feminine.

We nurture each part or neglect it. There are many possibilities to learn from both in our lives. The people around us are mirrors for our own inner dance to unite the two.

By embracing the masculine and feminine in our outer worlds, we also embrace those traits within ourselves that we cannot fully see.

Make peace with what you have inside and outside. The result is a divine union of wholeness and understanding.
