hile watching Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie, I marvelled at the creative genius behind the original story by Charles Dodgson (pen name, Lewis Carroll). A mathematician, Dodgson toys with logical and illogical notions in his timeless tale of imagination and fantasy. He forces the reader to abandon assumptions about what makes sense in the real world. Dodgson’s illogical prose redefines what is “real”, what is “imaginary”, and what is utter “jabberwocky”. Creative thinkers choose to venture beyond logic and embrace non-logical possibilities. A creative mind is comfortable thinking logically and illogically; it can adopt multiple viewpoints and integrate challenging situations without judgement or emotional reaction. Professor Robert Sternberg, renowned psychologist in the field of human intelligence, recently visited UTD and spoke on the topic of creativity. Sternberg believes that creativity is not some innate mental gift, but rather, a conscious skill to create novel and useful ideas. Sternberg suggests that creativity begins with a decision. I also believe that anyone can think creatively. Once you master the skills needed you’ll find that, with practice, it becomes second nature. The first step in creative thinking is to discover the edges of your ideas—what assumptions and limits are you placing on the problem? Now you are ready to redefine the problem. When you can turn the problem around in your mind and see it from all viewpoints, you will uncover new possibilities that previously did not exist in the landscape of your mind. When a new viewpoint reveals a solution that is both novel and useful, then your creative solution has been “discovered”.

❧ Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said. “One can’t believe impossible things.” “I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” —Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass


few months ago I was reading an article about the importance of asking for the most benevolent outcome. I was familiar with this concept and vowed to do a better job of asking for this. Almost immediately I began to see positive results and my life began to unfold in more joyful and fulfilling ways. I found it especially important to do this when facing challenging situations. Recently, my husband Tony and I were headed to the airport with our son where we were returning from a family trip. We had not given ourselves much time to return our rental car and get to our gate before our plane took off. We knew the rental place was a little bit away from the airport and assumed there would be good signage to guide us. However, as we approached the airport, we did not see any signs indicating where we had to go. We passed the airport and decided to take the next exit, do a u-turn and approach the airport from the oppositve direction. As we did this we saw a sign that read, “Rental Car return next exit”. When we approached the exit, at the last second Tony did not turn off, saying that he thought this was not really an exit. I immediately felt concern about how little time we had and I was fairly certain that we were supposed to have turned off there. However, instead of becoming upset, I remembered my vow to myself and silently asked for the most benevolent outcome for all concerned. I remained calm and told Tony what I had asked for. Just then we saw another sign that said, “Rental car return exit here”. We managed to quickly return our rental car, catch a waiting bus back to the airport, pass rapidly through security and arrive at our gate just as our section was boarding the plane. I marvelled at how much smoother things had gone by my staying focused in a positive direction. I hope you will join me in asking for the most benevolent outcome for all concerned and that your life will also become more joyful and fulfilling as a result. Love & Light, Felicia Weiss

Holistic Forum What is a naturopathic doctor (ND or NMD)? Doctors of naturopathic medicine (ND/NMDs) are trained as primary care physicians and have attended a four-year naturopathic medical school. Their training is based on the same basic science and clinical biomedical instruction allopathic medicine (MD); however, natural medicines are emphasized. This rigorous medical training differentiates ND/NMDs from other self-taught alternative practitioners. Naturopathic doctors assist patients by using mostly integrative and holistic modalities such as nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and counseling. This approach has proven successful in helping both chronic and acute conditions. To determine if a doctor is trained and licensed as an ND/NMD, go to or Dr. Kimberly Wilson, NMD, Vice President of the Texas Association of Naturopathic Physicians and a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, sees patients at Innovations Wellness Center, 6545 Preston Rd., Plano, TX, and 4230 Avondale Ave., Dallas, TX (972) 608-0100.

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 / (29 yrs. experience). 10% discount with this ad.

How do I become more passionate and joyful? We’re so easily distracted by technology and the business of life that we are becoming less and less in touch with our bodies. Bioenergetics helps us to be aware of our bodies, our breathing, our grounding so that we can make more conscious choices about what we want in our lives as well as what we don’t want.

How can CranioSacral Therapy help my life? 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. Sandy Hanne, R.M.T, has helped thousands of clients change their lives using CranioSacral Therapy. An advanced practitioner, she has studied extensively with Dr. John Upledger, founder of the technique. 469-438-8634.

Is there a Divine Design for me? Yes, most everyone wishes there is something special for he/she to do in life, but feel that they have been left out. No one has been left out.

We will remove the glop, open the heart, move into forgiveness and live a better life for it. Beth Carpenter, N.D. loves intuitively guiding God’s children in health and happiness.

Healing with Sound 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. 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.

Massaging Preterm Infants Enhances Growth A

fter over two decades of research, experts have concluded that massaging stable preterm infants leads to greater weight gains and earlier discharge. There appears to be a biological cause and effect between stroking, massaging, and grooming infants and their growth. Studies show that massage stimulates growth-promoting hormones. Massage therapy also increases the enzymes that make the cells of an infant’s vital organs more responsive to the growth-promoting effects of these hormones. Conversely, researchers have discovered that infants deprived of massage therapy showed lower levels of growth hormone. Even when infants were given injections of growth hormone, they failed to grow at a rate comparable to massaged infants.

This suggests that massage impacts infants at the cellular level.

Other studies specifically show that massage therapy has consistently led to increased weight gains in preterm infants. While massaged infants do not consume or retain more formula, weight gains are believed to be due to better conversion of food into growth. Some believe this to be due to a reduced adverse reaction to stress. It has also been suggested that an infant’s energy expenditure drops considerably after several days of massage therapy. This drop in expended energy may be partly responsible for the enhanced growth caused by massage therapy. In a study conducted by Dr. Frank Scafidi that won the NIMH Research Science Award #MH00331, 40 medically

stable preterm infants were assigned to treatment and control groups. The treated infants received tactile/kinesthetic stimulation for three 15-minute periods during three consecutive hours per day for a 10-day period. Sleep/wake behavior was monitored and the infants were evaluated at the beginning and at the end of the treatment period. The treated infants averaged a 21% greater weight gain per day. Be sure to consult a trained medical professional before beginning massage therapy on preterm infants.

f we’re not getting along with the people in our lives, what good is all our spiritual ‘progress’? Demonstrating the interconnection between our spirituality and our relationships, John E. Welshons begins his One Soul, One Love, One Heart: The Sacred Path to Healing All Relationships with a parable: a yogi meditates in his mountaintop hermitage for many years, eventually reaching the pinnacle of enlightenment, radiating an aura of peace and wisdom. That is, until he goes down to the nearby village and is accidentally shoved by a peasant, at which point he loses his hard-won serenity and explodes at the poor fellow. Therefore, no matter what spiritual path we follow, our first priority is maintaining good relationships, whether romantic, familial, professional, or casual. Synthesizing many spiritual traditions, including elements of Buddhist, yogic, and western psychology, as well as his own experience as a counselor and workshop leader, Welshons constructs a broad threepoint plan for relationship repair, ‘Seeing the Light,’ ‘Freeing the Light,’ and ‘Being the Light,’ that easily resonates no matter our background or beliefs. Endeavoring to cover the entire spectrum of human relationships, from the difficulties of caring for an aging parent to the lessons we can learn from our pets, Welshons’ advice remains sound, even when resorting to speaking in generalities. Writing in a gentle, even playful tone, he never allows the enormity of the task—the reform of all our interpersonal relationships—to feel overwhelming. For as Welshons points out, the path to healing our relationships is not to dwell on the problems that beset us, but to see the opportunities for greater love that surround us.

One Soul, One Love, One Heart: The Sacred Path to Healing All Relationships by John E. Welshons, New World Library, Novato CA, 2009.


hough warriors of peace are certainly not hiding in the shadows, it often seems as though they are because of the media attention to those who preach and practice intolerance. To help shine a light on this important and inspirational work, Gustav Niebuhr in Beyond Tolerance profiles the efforts of organizations and individuals rooted in different faiths, but working together to build their communities and help those in need. Through their cooperative labor they not only create a better life for themselves and those of their faith, but along the way they discover the essential ties of love and compassion connecting every faith. Niebuhr echoes Martin Luther King, Jr. in calling this a “Hindu-Moslem-Christian-Jewish-Buddhist belief.” Niebuhr eagerly notes that many interfaith groups came together in response to 9/11, dispelling the mis-belief of the time that ecumenicism was impossible. Writing in spare, direct prose, Niebuhr argues that in this time of continued strained interfaith relations, an ecumenical spirit is not only possible, but essential: “We can hardly discount the possibility,” he writes, “that a single individual emerging from an encounter with someone of a different faith convinced that they share a common humanity might make a difference. Occasionally, one person can stop a mob.” Whether the individuals profiled in Beyond Tolerance will indeed stem the rising tide of intolerance remains to be seen, but their efforts and Niebuhr’s sentiments deserve a fervent “amen.”

Beyond Tolerance: How People Across America Are Building Bridges Between Faiths by Gustav Niebuhr, Penguin Books, New York NY, 2008.

urrent pop psychology in America tells us that grief proceeds in five specific stages: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance. But how do we make sense of things when our grief does not follow the rules? How does this help us move forward in life after a loss that radically changes our view of the world? Following the loss of her parents and friends, Susan Berger, found that her own grieving process failed to follow this rote progression and that she needed additional tools to move beyond her loss. Through research and ten years of working with the bereaved Berger, a counselor and hospice volunteer, found that while people move through their grief in unique ways, they appear to follow five main archetypes: the Nomad, who wanders with unresolved grief and fails to establish a new identity; the Memorialist, who focuses on honoring the deceased; the Normalizer, who works to recreate the life they lost; the Activist, who helps others dealing with similar issues; and the Seeker, who explores philosophy in an attempt to reestablish meaning in life. Within each type Berger gives numerous and varied profiles to illustrate the coping pattern along with its advantages and disadvantages, strategies for healing and growth, and questions for further exploration. Thus, finding ourselves in these archetypes assists not only in giving meaning to loss, but also allows us to grow and create a new healthy direction and worldview. Often heartbreakingly direct, but always gentle and respectful, The Five Ways We Grieve speaks frankly and refreshingly about the diverse impacts of death and loss. Endeavoring to connect each person to assistance appropriate for their grieving, Berger concludes the book with an appendix of resources for self-help, while acknowledging that any advice from others can only play a part in our healing. Ultimately it is we who must journey through our grief, to find hope and re-embrace the fullness of life. The Five Ways We Grieve: Finding Your Personal Path to Healing After the Death of a Loved One by Susan Berger, Trumpeter Books, Boston MA, 2009.

Acupuncture for Arthritis


illions of Americans report that they cannot perform simple everyday tasks such as tying a tie or opening a jar, because of the debilitating pain of arthritis. Twenty percent of all Americans say that their arthritis symptoms are so severe that it has affected their job performance and their general ability to enjoy life. Despite what one may think, arthritis is not just an “old persons” disease. In fact, almost two-thirds of those with some form of arthritis are younger than age 65. There are two main forms of arthritis: rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. In recent studies, acupuncture has been shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms of both.

A study conducted in Germany looked at over 300,000 people with osteoarthritis of the knee. Participants in the study received 15 sessions of acupuncture combined with their usual medical care. During the study, those that had the treatments reported less pain and stiffness, improved function, and better quality of life, than those who had received routine medical care alone. Interestingly enough, those that had the acupuncture treatments, also reported less severity of their symptoms for three months after the study, when they were not receiving acupuncture at all. Another study was conducted in China on victims of rheumatoid arthritis. Here, participants were treated with traditional acupuncture as well as another technique

called electroacupuncture, which uses minute bursts of electricity to stimulate the acupressure points. Participants receiving both the traditional and the electroacupuncture reported significant decreases in the severity of their symptoms. As when it is used to treat any condition, according to TCM, acupuncture relieves the symptoms associated with arthritis by improving blood and qi flow to the affected areas.

Acupuncture decreases the pain associated with arthritis by increasing the release of neurotransmitters that block pain. The meridians or acu-points that are located along nerve pathways are stimulated by the needles and then send signals to the brain to release endorphins. Endorphins are chemicals that are very similar

in nature to morphine that are released in the body during times of pain or stress. The painless acupressure needles “fool” the nerves into thinking they are in pain, and the brain releases the chemicals in response.

Today, acupuncture is so widely accepted as a treatment for arthritis that it is even covered by some health insurance companies. So if one is suffering from any form of arthritis, always consult a doctor first, and if acupuncture is recommended, be sure to check and see if the treatment is covered by insurance. For more information on acupuncture, please contact Pacific College of Oriental Medicine at (800) 729-0941, or visit



elcome spring with exciting new growth and purposeful action. Winter is over or on its final glacial gusts. We are on time to break out of heavy layers, and shake ourselves free. Nature bursts out of dormant branches into buds. She has to push out of buds into blooms. Finally she calls the bees and butterflies to pollinate and set fruit. It all happens in a few months. There is nothing quite as tenacious and determined as a chick pecking its way out of the egg: Or as patient as a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. Slow down and watch. Prepare to do what is needed to transform your own life. We are one of Earth's creatures and like the rest, we are compelled in one way or another to break free and embrace the gift of birth. Perhaps the powerful Mars transits are the push you need to start pecking free. Perhaps you are waiting for the kiss of sunshine to emerge and stretch your wings. There is no guarantee except that the process is part of us. It will be a mix of pain, joy, struggle and ease. It is filled with opportunity. Some will fall into change, while many more are compelled to move out of the womb into action. Just like the beginning of all life, it is natural. No matter how you emerge; You are right on time. Mars, the planet of action and energy, is moving forward. There is no better use of Mars' momentum than purposeful action. In many ways, nature's creatures only know purposeful action. They have work to do and emerge with the assignment to live, play, procreate, protect, and enjoy food. Often they have loads of fun in the midst of very busy lives. They do not feel sorry for themselves. Two years ago my dear husband suffered a crippling stroke. Since that time it's been a daily—even hourly—commitment by both of us to regain his speech, cognition, mobility and use of his right arm. One day I asked him why he didn't feel sorry for himself. He said that he has much to do to recover, and that if he did that, he wouldn't be able to do what it takes to heal. This was such a gift to me. I was

Spring 2010

Your Spring Stars feeling sorry for myself and it literally sapped my energy and joy. Mars is now moving forward.

April: Mars is moving and we are emerging. Mars is all about activity. "Let's do it my way now!" "Are you with me or against me?" The desire for purposeful action is strong. Watch as properties move on the market and economic news tentatively gets stronger. Think of Mars as the Market. When Mars gains momentum after a lull, folks stop worrying about risk as much as they worry about missing an opportunity. Take care of the details. Get your taxes or extension done. Mars is moving forward and while Mercury goes retrograde this month, it doesn't confuse communication until the 17th. Retrograde Mercury is good for mental rest and miscommunication until May 11th. April is more than taxes and duty; she brings a lovely transit of Venus, the planet of love and money. In Vedic astrology Venus is happy in Taurus from April 20th until May 15th. There is action, play and romantic potential everywhere. Get on out of that chrysalis and spread your gossamer wings! It's what's natural. May: May begins with Venus at her best. That means spending more to get the very best she can almost afford. This should be good for retail. If you are on a budget, then you had better be creative or shop resale. Think of it as recycled style. If you're holding onto that cocoon, then it's time to push on out. You could change your image with a makeover. Saturn, as structure, faces Uranus, the planet of change. They started their dance last year. Now they are facing each other again. Their push isn't just seen in is also evident in appearance and abundance and maybe even a big change in work or residence. Would you like to change your abundance? Jupiter joins Uranus: Jupiter's lessons are about excess. What do you do with your cash? What brings you freedom and what holds you down? What did you learn from the last boom and bust? Think of Jupiter as your personal guru and Uranus as ways to set yourself free. Jupiter is in a constellation he enjoys: Pisces. However, he will teach

us in some manner through excess. It could be through excessive fear or doubts. It might be through excessive caution, eating or spending. Venus is in the lunar mansion Rohini which means "the most beloved wife." Venus here likes nice things. It doesn't mean lots of them. It just means the ones you really like. President Obama has his Moon there. He likes to look good in his well-tailored suits. He didn't get them until he made the money. We can learn from him there. Indulge where we can, appreciate and nurture what we've planted, and learn what fits us well.

June: Jupiter and Uranus spend the month together. We continue to learn: What liberates you and when do you feel trapped? I expect plenty of weddings. Commitment can liberate you when you've worked to develop a relationship. I expect plenty of mergers in the corporate world, too. The Uranus knot to untie is how to balance commitment and freedom: Is the notion that sharing life or debt or a name will cost you your individuality true for you? Or is that union what might just free you to evolve and grow through love and the desire to be protected or the strength to be the protector? Yes, there will be plenty of second thoughts. Some "mergers" might be delayed until the beginning of 2011. But overall, Saturn is the wisdom of age and time. He shows you the joy of simple daily experience and the truth that we will all age and ultimately die. Saturn facing the Jupiter-Uranus union reminds us that there is strength in commitment and there is value in being there for another. This might be a friend, a colleague, an acquaintance, family member or even a stranger. It is valuable to be there for another person and that investment will cost you some of your own freedom. Jupiter reminds us that it is a joyful investment, Uranus reminds us that it is ultimate liberation to give and Saturn shows us how we are more like the old folks than we could have ever imagined. It's a good time to enjoy each hour of each day...Even if they look like a burden.

How the Love Grows: It grows cautiously. Planets in opposition are like a great scale weighing and assessing. Fortunately, Venus and Mars are both moving ahead. Venus is ready to love again and Mars is finally ready to lead her on the dance floor of romance. The only question for you: Who wears the Mars in your relationship? Where the Money Flows: It too moves. Wise investors look at many different areas. The Mars momentum is actually good for risk. A busy Mars is often an indicator that more investors are in. Real estate and energy are gaining strength. I'm not a financial person, but I do know that when the economy makes an adjustment more people and businesses move to Texas. In general, money and risk are on again. Those powerful opposition planets indicate caution and ups, downs then ups again. Growth is everywhere, it's just doing a shuffle rather than running a sprint. Something old is New Again: The big transit this season is Saturn, the planet of structure and form, opposing Uranus, the planet of change. We all talk about change, but like a chick that suddenly outgrows his egg; we wait until the familiar no longer fits. In terms of the outer planets, the change is a long process. Uranus often brings a situation that looks crazy or people who seem to act out in odd ways. The balance with Saturn structure and Uranus change is to build something more useful rather than simply destroy something old. The "Tea party" movement is a great example of the Saturn-Uranus dance. In May, Jupiter, the politician of the heavens, joins Uranus. Watch faces in the news and in

this movement. Sara Palin is its darling now. She'll have plenty of competition for that spot this summer. Jupiter takes the Uranus-Saturn dilemma and turns it into a political platform. The hope of change is met with fear in all of life. But Jupiter steps onto the platform and says the hope of political power comes from the power to persuade and because “We the People” are what “they the candidates” need.

The Obama Presidency: Mars or action was stymied earlier this year. On March 11th, Mars finally started to move forward. In Vedic astrology, there are planets that can bring great success and those that could bring us down. Mars' nature is to be of service: to push forward in the face of opposition and to take risks. In the President's chart, Mars is in a very stressful position: At the very last degree of a constellation. As a candidate for the Democratic nomination, President Obama moved slowly and carefully. He allowed his opponents to charge ahead. He was the wise one with insight, tolerance and patience. His message was simple and spoke to the desire of many for vision and change within the structure. These traits are Saturn's virtues with Jupiter's enthusiasm. He has a beautiful Saturn in his chart. Saturn is uplifted by Jupiter's optimism and they are both at the very front of his chart. They represent birth and faith in the process. As I write this, I don't know what happened with the Healthcare vote. I know that the President at least appears to be pushing ahead. I know that he must be impatient and frustrated. I would like to remind him of his Saturn gifts and of the potential for folly if he charges into battle without enough troops or

experience. I know that this legislation will only succeed if he finds a way to bring the opposition to the table: Some way to convert them to the purpose and value of change without destroying the system that exists. Mars isn't his friend. I suspect that there is much personal frustration behind the scenes. As the captain of this country, this legislation could be his albatross, and could ultimately pull his presidency down. I expect him to simplify the legislation and start with a foundation for success: To work with the planets and not against them. If not, it could turn his legacy into a sinking ship. Mars charges ahead and he will be tempted to push it through if possible. But that will not warrant success. It could be just the distraction the opposition needs. What I want personally isn't the issue here. It's which planets bring him success. I ask for wisdom and cooperation to restructure rather than destroy. President Obama has the lovely Venus on his Moon in May. That should bring cooperation, charisma and charm through him. Throughout the year, the First Lady continues to enjoy lovely Jupiter transits without the Mars distractions. Her popularity will continue to grow and she will have measurable success with her campaign to stop childhood obesity. She is a rising star. Her husband is obviously successful, but he is at the end of a major cycle in his life. For any person it is filled with crossroads: It could lead to a one term Presidency or failure. I do expect some sort of bill to pass. Will it thrive and be a success or will it be mired in bureaucracy? That is the question.
