One weekend I was tired and decided not to go, but asked my husband to bring home a “doggy bag” of what she prepared. He came home with “samboosay,” which is similar to the Indian samosa and a favorite of mine.

The following day, which is normally a day off, I completed my usual routine of e-mail catch up in the morning and took an afternoon nap. I delighted at the idea of heating the samboosay for a late lunch. I was

<< continued from page 7 It began in late August 2014 when I attended another center’s holistic healing fair to offer support. I selected two readers. The second reader told me “Temple of Light San Diego, Los Angeles and Inland Empire are coming sooner than you think.” Well, I had no idea they were coming at all. I had envisioned that the OC location would simply grow over the years and, perhaps one day, we would own a building with a labyrinth and koi pond. I thought about the reading and wondered what it meant. Approximately ten days later, I received a call from a lovely lady who said, “I have a property in San Diego and would like it to be a spiritual center. God told me to call you”.”

I was “synchronistically emotional.” I was so caught in the synchronicity of the reading and the subsequent call I neglected to be grounded or ask for continued guidance on what it meant and what my course of action should be. I was in a euphoric flow of being provided by the Universe.

of action for the center, because I assumed I already knew, but also I neglected to check in with what was best for me personally. I had removed myself from the equation and allowed the synchronicity and everyone’s excitement to be my guiding force.

At the beginning of October, small items of disagreement between the owner and I emerged which I dismissed as things future meetings and conversations would iron out.

During November, the small items of disagreement regarding the timing and amount of construction, what the center should be, how it should be run, and the types of events to book grew larger, not smaller. Neither of us was wrong or right, of course; we just had different ideas. I began having doubts as to whether we should move forward. The process was not easy and graceful; it was difficult and exhausting.

s

I was devastated and embarrassed.

To make some sense of it, I counted my blessings. The idea of expansion to other counties is now in the business plan which has caused us to make connections with out-of-county holistic healing arts practitioners. We put our previous plan to expand Radiance to nearby counties into action that was previously put on hold. We realized going horizontal with the Temple of Light instead of vertical (being medium size in many locations rather than a single larger one) served the seekers and the professionals in a much greater way. Expansion sent a message to the entire community of abundance and trust in this work. It was all good.

"I believe healers are like water who never let obstacles stand in their way, but instead find a course around them and remain in the flow."

Meetings with the owner, making plans, connecting with the local healing community, holding a beautiful Fall Equinox celebration at the location, and an opening date of January 2015 was planned. All of this happened with me excitedly going with the flow. I not only neglected to check in with higher guidance on the best course 6

Radiance January/February 2015

As soon as I acknowledged my feelings of doubt and be in integrity, I met with the woman and shared what was happening. I believe healers are like water who never let obstacles stand in their way, but instead find a course around them and remain in the flow.

s

However, I could not find the flow. I finally thought, “I better check in and get solid Divine guidance on what is happening.” Messages this situation was not in my best interest, at least for now, came from my guides and from the guides of friends and family members.

Still I wondered why I was caught up emotionally and if it was part of a grand Divine plan. Why was the outcome so different than the original presentation? I explored the truth of the journey I had taken with my inner guidance. I was shown two scenarios.

First, I could have moved forward with the expansion and second, I could have delayed and see what results both scenarios would bring.

The first image I was shown depicted the center, the construction, the events, etc. It also showed the owner


TRUTH s CONSCIOUSNESS s BLISS and I, after many conversations and meetings, coming to an agreement because, of course, in the end, we both have the same intentions of creating something special. And although the first scenario of moving forward immediately was still an option, I was shown how much work and energy it would require to get it ready. I was told if I wanted moved forward now, I would be supported and guided and, in the end, would be triumphant in co-creating it.

the entire truth, and, was willing to see the part I played instead of just “what do I do?” was the truth revealed.

than staying tuned in and working them through at the time, I waved them off and dismissed them in my state of blind faith I was working within a Divine synchronicity and “everything will be okay.”

"It was only when I asked to be shown the entire truth, and, was willing to see the part I played instead of just 'what do I do?' was the truth revealed."

The second image was calmer, quieter, and less challenging energetically. It showed me spending 2015 building relationships, creating events, expanding Radiance, and having a community already in place which called for a center to be opened as compared to the first vision of opening a center and then working on bringing attendees – like putting the cart before the horse. I chose the second option because at my age and level of wisdom, I no longer want to exert myself in that way. I had “seen that, been there, and bought the t-shirt” of the high energy expending way of doing things. I wanted the gentler approach that option two offered.

Still, there seemed to be more information for me to realize; something still didn’t make sense. I finally asked the right question. “Why did I have to choose between the two scenarios instead of being shown the third option of how the expansion could have gone smoothly from the beginning?” It was only when I asked to be shown

We have personal sovereignty in everything. Our most beloved inner guidance of our higher self, spirit guides, guardian angels, and master teachers who walk with us cannot provide guidance and knowledge for which we have not specifically asked. They must patiently wait for us to ask the right questions. Every day I counsel and guide my students and mentees that once we own our creation of the events and situations in front of us, we then have the power to change them. If we are in a state of mind that events “happen” to us, we avoid looking deep into our share of creating them. Denial is much easier, but we forsake any opportunity of creating change.

The guidance I received to either move forward with great energy or delay and have it go easier were the two options I had available based on what I had unwittingly co-created. The turning point from co-creating what I wanted, to that which I did not, happened when the small amounts of disagreements began and, rather

I look back now and see that once the idea of an expansion was presented, I got caught up in the euphoria and became impatient for it to be.

Many of you know we had rough summer financially, which we have come through. The idea of rallying to not only have the Irvine center begin to thrive, but also to create a second one, felt like a triumph. I remembered my personal motto of “non-judgmental accountability.” This means looking at each situation and being accountable for its creation, but without self-blame. Because, after all, we are here to learn and blaming ourselves for the act of learning is counterproductive. I learned that in my impatience to see this expansion, I became attached to it happening now and, therefore, waived off things I should have addressed when they occurred. Early on, I was not detached or willing to make sure the expansion was being created carefully and to walk away if it wasn’t. I was not emotionally neutral and, is this state of non-neutrality, I was not patient or accountable.

What I love about our lives on earth as beings of light and creation is we never lose opportunities to cocreate what we want, no matter how badly we may have created continued on page 8 >> January/February 2015

We live in an abundant, loving, giving Universe which is happy to let us have “do overs.” Unlike parents who would take away a rogue teenager’s car keys, the Universe allows us to keep our personal sovereignty and do things over and over as many times as needed to get it right. The Temple of Light Spiritual Community will expand to six new locations for a total of seven. The San Diego, Los Angeles, Inland Empire, Sedona, Las Vegas, and Ventura County URL’s have been purchased.

When are they coming? I don’t know. I do know they will happen, one step at a time with ease and grace, and may even take 20 years. I am patient to see them happen within a gentle time frame knowing my personal sovereignty to create them will never be forsaken – even if I stumble along the way. Rev.

TRUTH s CONSCIOUSNESS s BLISS

Higher

Brain Living By Dr. Michael Cotton

Y

ou’ve no doubt heard it said we use only 5% of the potential of our brains.

And what we do use is predominantly the primitive survival or Lower Brain, the one that keeps us in the grip of stress, fear, anxiety, reactive impulse, addiction, frustration and resistance to change. That’s the part of the brain from which we largely make our decisions and process our reactions. It is that old flight-or-fight mechanism held over from our predatorrich ancestral heritage.

But our Higher Brain, prefrontal cortex, the seat of empowerment, joy, gratitude, purpose, meaning in life and spiritual connection, is largely untapped. That’s the part of the brain that welcomes and helps us support change. That’s where we experience connection and clarity, where we can actually start creating a better life.

Which brain would you rather run your life?

Before now, you didn’t really have a choice. But Higher Brain Living® (HBL) is the revolutionary new evolution that lets you engage the Higher Brain—to let your body, mind and spirit soar in all areas of your life. And let’s you activate all that latent power.

Higher Brain Living signals a major physiological shift that is setting humanity free through the power of the untapped Higher Brain. The means to do this is a unique process that surges energy through the body into the Higher Brain. HBL is a 22-step program that fulfills this higher brain potential in all of us. Each session with the facilitator increases energy in the higher brain, and over

®

time one’s center of gravity shifts to more of the Higher Brain. Following is a taste of getting just a little energy into that newly-evolved Higher Brain:

Close your eyes and imagine the best day of your life… Think of a time when nothing could have ruined your day. You were in the moment, present, feeling utterly alive, and in tune with the world around you. Maybe you were getting married or just received a job promotion, or were completing some project or artwork, or you were having your first child. Maybe you donated your time to a community service event, or helped someone in need. Perhaps it was the fulfillment of some big dream. Go on... feel it… that feeling of empowerment and joy and even invincibility. In this moment you were unstoppable … let that feeling sink in. How amazing do you feel? That’s just a taste of it….but what if you could have this feeling for longer intervals? That experience is produced by the pre-frontal cortex of your brain… and by switching your “operating system” from the Lower Brain to the Higher Brain, this can become your new baseline in life!

HBL takes advantage of the subtle energy pathways in the body—known by many ancient and current cultures as chi, prana or kundalini. We have looked at these pathways from a scientific perspective, and research has revealed that they are piezo-electric. They release energy when compressed or stretched gently in the right way. At HLB, we revolutionized this understanding continued on page 10 >> January/February 2015

<< continued from page 9 pathways from a scientific perspective, and research has revealed they are piezo-electric. They release energy when compressed or stretched gently in the right way. At HLB, we revolutionized this understanding by cracking the code that allows us to powerfully and consistently cue these pathways, mobilizing this dormant energy and directing it to the Higher Brain. This increases the metabolism of the Higher Brain and wakes up its potential! When the Higher Brain gets energy, it creates its own feedback mechanism in the form of a breath pump. Breath expands to pump oxygen into the Higher Brain where all of your potential is. A feedback mechanism we call salutogenesis begins. This is the body’s automatic feedback response, not one the individual is controlling. Later, another wave will develop to release stress.

Once you are surging energy into the Higher Brain, stress must discharge. It is released through these consistent natural rejuvenating waves in the body. However, it’s more than just stress that’s removed. It’s the barrier to change. After three decades of obsessively studying human potential, I have found people rarely have true and lasting transformational change. Now we know why!

The missing link is the lack of energy in the highest, most evolved part of our brain.

You can have new thoughts, great goals, big dreams and compelling visions…but these thoughts, goals, dreams and visions are fleeting if the Higher Brain does not drive them forward. There must be a corresponding change in brain function to match your new thoughts, goals, dreams etc…or they do not become real. So part of the program includes a guidebook designed to maximize that HBL energy at each step of one’s progress. Using this guidebook, people can create a new life map and bring the empowered, change-seeking Higher Brain to all of areas of their lives—career, purpose, prosperity, personal growth, relationships, spiritual connection and more.

HBL enables people the opportunity to create an extraordinary new life, to thrive, to let go of stress and overwhelm, to experience joy, confidence, passion and to grow and evolve every day. 10

By increasing energy in your Higher Brain, you are generating a lifelong map toward vertical personal growth.

Based on the most progressive knowledge of 21st century neuroscience, with roots in ancient wisdom that dates back to yogi mystics 5,000 ago, HBL is transformational, proven and repeatable.

It is also the gateway to what has long been called “enlightenment.” Few of us are monks who can commit to a regimen of meditation for four hours a day for 30 years. However, by first energizing the dormant part of the Higher Brain, we can accelerate the path to enlightenment. Our experience is that people experience an awakening…and whether this leads to a bliss state or finding one’s life purpose—living from the Higher Brain opens vast new vistas. Are you now ready energize the other 95% of your potential by engaging the Higher Brain? Dr. Michael Cotton is a leading Evolutionary Theorist and the Founder of Higher Brain Living®. He has a Doctoral degree in Chiropractic and is the Creator of the revolutionary Higher Brain Living® Technique, which helps shift energy into the prefrontal cortex, awakening human potential, for a lifetime of lasting joy, purpose and potential.

P

ut Your Whole Self In By Temple Hayes

D

o you remember being a little kid and dancing to the song The Hokey Pokey, putting different parts of yourself into it and then being asked to "put your whole self in?" Remember how good it felt to shake your body and turn around? You were present, alive, and awake! Isn't that what life is all about? When we are children we innately live in the moment by putting our whole selves in, but why do so few of us put our whole selves in as adults?

I remember a number of years ago I visited a friend of mine and Kayleigh, a four- year-old child was asking me to dance with her. I got on my knees so we could be closer to the same height and we proceeded to dance. We were pretending to be Tom and Sally out for the evening immersed in this beautiful dance. Each time we completed the song, Kayleigh exclaimed, "Let's do it again." Without hesitation she was putting her whole self in.

By this point, my knees were having

thoughts of their own and longing for this experience to done.

The next morning I asked Kayleigh if she would like to play the part of Tom and Sally and dance some more. She didn't connect with what I was saying. To her that experience was yesterday. It was not significant any more nor was it relevant. It was an experience which was behind her. She had put her whole self in the day before and saw no reason to recall or relive it again.

This is the way we naturally are destined and designed to be in our daily lives. We are meant to go from experience to experience and put our whole selves in.

Yet what happens is most of us are walking through life disconnected and drained and rarely present for what is occurring NOW. We are toting our past on our backs and shoulders, recalling all the Toms and Sallys in our lives who have either wronged or shamed us, or they didn't do it right. We continue dancing through our lives with all

this weight on our hearts and mind while not being impassioned and energized in this moment. What needs to happen for us to make the shift?

Decide this moment with every encounter you are going to put your whole self in. If you are at a restaurant with friends put your phone away, if you are going on your first date, be you and share who you are rather than holding back and editing most of the things you share. If you are facing a fear, face it rather than replace it and keep walking forward. Put your whole self in. As you practice and it becomes a habit ,three things will occur. 1. You will have more energy

There's a story of a guy riding a bicycle up hill and struggling. What he doesn't realize is the brakes are on. The energy it is taking to move forward while at the same time "being locked in place" is likened to a person who

<< continued from page 11 wants to move forward yet is holding on to past sorrow, or the people they perceived have done harm against them or energies of regret and disappointment.

2. You will become empowered

more

When you put your whole self in and allow your energy to change which will change your life, something amazing and incredible happens. You feel better, you like the feelings and thoughts you are having, and people are asking you, "How do you have so much energy?"

Putting your whole self in the moment requires being able to say who you are and be what you feel. If you are committed to being a person who does not carry around past luggage then you will be able to travel lightly as you go from place to place and person to person for you are being true to yourself. Just the simple, profound commitment to speak and live the real you will change your energy level dramatically.

You self you like

Begin this amazing, enlightening practice. Affirm before every event, "I am putting my whole self in." At the end of the day, ask, "Did I do it?

Radiance January/February 2015

Freedom is gifted to you and to others

are able to put your whole in first and not wait until turn yourself around just the order of the song.

The wonder of this is you are able to give the same permission to others in your life. You begin to see them as whole rather than broken, possible instead of impossible, and life becomes a new playing field. You wake up one morning and you are free from your own self- bondage.

This inner dialogue moves from being a thought into a feeling and finally a realization. Your whole self you begin to measure it daily in your work, with your families and loved ones, with the moments of silence and retreat you gave yourself.

Did I put my whole self in? If not, how can I make more of an effort tomorrow?" This is your moment. Begin now. Put your whole self in!

Dancing s

with the Universe By Louise Hauck

R

emember when you first embraced the concept of synchronicity? For many of us, the word "coincidence" disappeared from our vocabulary.

Rather than dismissing those random occurrences that showed up in quirky or bizarre ways, we began identifying them as the unfolding of seemingly psychic timing of events. We began to engage more with these OMG! moments, treasuring them as wonderful surprises that confirm the existence of a bigger plan unfolding. Those special moments still make me feel as though I’m participating in a marvelous dance, expertly choreographed by the Universe. But synchronistic moments are much more than just an opportunity to marvel. Think of each synchronistic moment as a doorway to step through and go deeper. What is it exactly these synchronistic moments are pointing us toward? Something else occurs when I stop and recognize them: I’ve observed an instantaneous pull that brings me into 16

ealing the Scars from Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, PTSD, and More By Tom North

editation saved my life.

My father, Richard North, died in a Navy jet test flight crash when I was six years old. Fifteen months after his death, my mother, Helen, who had eight children, married a man named Frank Beardsley who had ten, making us one of the largest families in the country. We became famous, and our story was featured in the movie, Yours, Mine and Ours.

However, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one big happy family. We had to hide the fact we were living a lie.

My stepfather was abusive on every level; physically, emotionally and sexually. His constant rage, disapproval, and controlling personality left deep emotional scars.

To make matters worse, our family hid this from the outside world, so we each suffered in silence. The toll I paid was enormous. Lacking any sense of self-worth, it drove me to depression and drugs.

I imagine many people will identify with the feelings, even if their home life was not as extreme as mine. But trauma is traumaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whether

suffered in a living room or the theatre of war.

As a young adult, I discovered meditation. It was my passage out of a deep depression and emotional despair. I recommend it as a powerful, effective solution if you cannot get out of the mental patterns that keep you stuck, and feeling a victim of past trauma.

Meditation was, and still is, a vital therapy for my continued survival and healing from a life of child continued on page 20 >> January/February 2015

<< continued from page 19 abuse and domestic violence. I still practice it every day, having begun more than 38 years ago.

Meditation is a powerful tool for health and healing on all levels. Research shows that group meditation can produce a radiating influence of peace in society. Recently, Dr. Deepak Chopra sponsored and conducted an online Global Group Meditation for Peace with more than 100,000 people participating from globally. I was happy to be a part of this important event.

This was a tremendous service Dr. Chopra delivered to the audience, for, as he explained, meditation is the key to our connection with ourselves: Our Divine Selves.

It is also our connection to the collective consciousness. Studies show everything in the universe is connected; it is possible to unite people in heart-focused care and intention to facilitate the shift in global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace.

The Health Benefits of Daily Meditation are Many

The scientific evidence documenting the benefits of Transcendental Meditation, especially for PTSD, which includes child abuse, is conclusive.

While there may always be skeptics, it is irrefutable that meditation delivers improvements on every level of life, from stress management to emotional, physical and spiritual balance. 20

Radiance January/February 2015

Dr. Norman Rosenthal, senior research scientist at the National Institute of Health (NIH), has published his studies of more than 300 experiments that prove the importance and benefits of meditation.

This is in addition to the many thousands of published reports which have become available in the past 40 years from the Maharishi University of Management, Harvard University and many others. In my own experience, and in the experience of many meditators who have been culturing a daily meditation practice over time, the ongoing result has been a steadily growing expansion of awareness and appreciation for all of life. This takes the form of improved relationships with those around me, connection with the human race, and seeing the divine intelligence in the simplest life forms.

I would be remiss if I didn’t include experiencing an overwhelming sense of love for everyone and everything I encounter.

As one friend and former college classmate of mine said, “I was stopped in commuter traffic on the 405 freeway in L.A. I looked around me at the thousands of cars and people and was feeling an unbounded love for all of them!”

If this is the outcome of consistent meditation, it is worth trying for anyone whose past trauma-related or trauma-triggered emotions frequently get the better of them. For those who simply cannot see their way out of their personal darkness, meditation is even more

important. I encourage you to make the commitment. Tom North is the author of True North – The Shocking Truth About “Yours, Mine and Ours” They appeared to be the blissful Beardsleys, the happily blended family—eight of Helen North’s, ten of Frank Beardsley’s, and two children from their union. A family so famous in America that Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda played the parents in the box office smash--Yours Mine and Ours. But they were anything from blissful; in fact they were the beaten and battered Beardsleys. That’s the real hidden story behind the spotlight. And Tom North, Helen’s second eldest son, is now revealing how he survived the ordeal of living with a horrifyingly abusive stepfather that drove him to depression and drugs, and deprived him of his selfworth—and a mother who protected the image of the “perfect” family at all costs. But True North is much more than an inspiring and powerful account of a man who rose to success against all odds. It’s a story of how Transcendental Meditation (TM) brought peace to Tom North and saved his life. It brings to light how effective meditation is as a means for healing trauma survivors and especially those who have endured any form of verbal, physical or sexual abuse.

Lenses to Shift You from Pissed to Blissed By Bob Sima It's in these moments we lose hope. We feel defeated. Why is it so easy for us to get rattled, to go from blissed to pissed, from serenity to insanity?

A

nger, disappointment, frustration. Most of us spend a lot of our days wrapped up in these emotions which dominate our outlook on life. The more we indulge in these negative feelings, the worse our lives become. What if we can go from pissed to blissed just by taking our cues from music?

As a singer-songwriter who travels the world performing and whose inspiration comes entirely from spirituality, I believe music can give us new perspectives for transforming our lives. You've heard it said that "music is the soundtrack of your life" which means music can be a teacher in our lives. For example, you might often think that life is piled up against you, but what if it was "Happening for You?"

Imagine, it's Monday morning, sun shining, tunes cranked and you are blissfully driving to the airport to go after a new opportunity.

As you enter the freeway accelerating, you notice the car is not getting up to speed and you hear the dreaded thump thump thump. No! This is not happening. Yes, it is happening. Flat tire, missed flight, opportunity gone.

It's simple. It's our paradigm, our perspective. We view the events dualistically, as sometimes "good" sometimes "bad." We feel good or bad depending on the outcome without looking at a much grander view, the bigger picture.

Living this paradigm sets you up for continual disappointment and defeat. It's time for a new perspective, a brand new set of lenses. I am not talking about framing things to make them look better, like some sort of philosophical Photoshop. There is a much more powerful story connected to the soul's journey. Following are some New Lenses for you to use to view your life experience, based on lyrics from my song "Happening For You." After reading these lenses, I invite you to download the song so this teaching is activated and reinforced on each listen.

Lens #1: It's Happening For You

Everything happens for you, not to you. And it's all for your highest good. Try this: take a deep cleansing breath and recall a challenging event in your life. Discern, for a moment, what value this event added to your life and how it fed your soul in some perfect way it needed for ascension. continued on page 26 >> January/February 2015

25


<< continued from page 25 LYRIC: "...this can't be happening to me tonight. Well, it isn't my friend. It's happening for you..."

Lens #2: Set the Dream, Detach from the Outcome, Everything is a Miracle As Einstein suggests, there are only two ways to live your life. That is, to see nothing as a miracle or to see everything as a miracle. Choose everything! Events and happenings are one great miracle; the fact you are here is miraculous, as the chances of being born into a body are 1 in 400 trillion.

Try this: take a deep conscious breath and ponder the events that had to take place to create your soul in this body to enter the here and now: the chemical reactions, cells dividing, ancestors, and the myriad of events. LYRIC: "...lifetimes of memories, rushing, rushing, rushing, at you."

Lens #3: Pain is the Great Awakener

A pain in your body is telling you, "Hey look at me. I need some care." Pain in the emotional body or soul is talking as well, so have a listen.

Try this: next time you are triggered, depressed, drained, anxious, angry, or hurt, take a deep cleansing breath when a pain arises and just feel it. Be with it. Listen to what it is telling you. It is there for your highest good with a message for you. Breathe, allow, and listen. LYRIC: "...this pain, this thing is gonna have a talking to you..."

Lens #4: It's a Lesson or a Blessing

Label events as lessons or blessings. It's a win-win.

Try this: go back and look at events in your life that may have been traumatic and discern the lesson and/or blessing in each event. This practice will lead to gratitude, which is the virtue among all virtues for creating peace and meaning in your life. LYRIC: "...lessons and blessings disguised as disaster..."

Lens #5: You Are Here to Grow

Many leading experts in the human potential field firmly believe our souls are here to grow and to ascend. In fact, they are under contract!

In truth, it's all about transformation, soul transformation 26

through the human vessel. With this grander view, step back and see the tapestry of your life taking form within the patterns of behaviors and events.

G etting a Grip on Anxiety By Dr. Denee Jordan, PSY.D

E

nter the New Year without anything holding you back. The process may not be easy, but it is simple.

become to protect ourselves from life-threatening danger; much like a wild animal.

After all, chances are, if you have an anxiety disorder, you are pretty good at feeling nervous and afraid. Think of all the energy you have used up suffering from your fear.

When we lived in the wild, a rapid shift from intellect to "fight, flee, or freeze," was necessary. However in modern society, it can create a myriad of problems. We are seldom in truly life-threatening situations.

When it comes to changing the behaviors, thoughts, and feelings we have been rehearsing for years, the work required can be significant.

What would happen if you put as much energy into practicing new behaviors? Anxiety disorders are persistent and can produce tremendous suffering.

Anxiety is natural; debilitating anxiety is not. In fact, basic anxiety is necessary. It is our chemical preparation for potential danger. The more anxious we feel, the more we lose our ability to use our human intellect and the more prepared we

I like to think of it as awareness moving from the "front" of the brain (location of rational, reasonable thinking), to the "back" of the brain (location of basic survival).

The interesting thing is panic is a reaction to help prevent us from dying, but it is so uncomfortable it feels like we are dying.

In fact, a panic attack itself can be much more uncomfortable than the supposed danger, and eventually the panic attack itself becomes the danger. Because panic is at the end of the Survival Spectrum, the part of the brain that can discern the

difference between a life-threatening situation and one that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, has already been disengaged. This is why logic can seem so useless when trying to manage a panic attack. It is supposed to be like this so we are in the optimal defensive state. In many ways, it can be compared to going into shock when the body is badly injured. The message from the body and the brain is that there is imminent, lifethreatening danger. Eventually, the brain automatically associates this feeling of terror with a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;triggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, or cause, in order to avoid this danger in the future. We believe the cause of our panic attack is this trigger; when, in fact, the cause of our panic attack is our lack of ability to recognize and regulate our feelings or fear responses. Panic attacks do not come out of nowhere. They are at the end of a

continued on page 28 >> January/February 2015

27


<< continued from page 27 progressive survival continuum. There can also be many contributing factors besides the trigger which can intensify the anxiety such as fatigue, hunger, illness, etc.; all of which need to be taken into consideration as well.

When looking at anxiety disorders, it is important to see how the stimulus-reaction cycle becomes progressively worse. The reason being is the more anxious we become, the more we lose our ability to rationally manage our feelings and the less faith we have in our ability to do so. A person becomes afraid of fear itself and begins to live at a progressively more intensive, baseline state of anxiety which, in turn, makes them more susceptible to a full-blown panic attack. Without intentionally breaking the cycle, it frequently happens again and the baseline anxiety goes up even further.

Eventually a person completely loses faith in his/her ability to respond in healthy, manageable ways to general stress and/or the trigger. S/he naturally tries to control the perceived danger (going outside, germs, becoming homosexual, eating certain foods, being dirty and so forth) and this leads to avoidant behavior, obsessive thinking, withdrawal and shame. It becomes a progressively vicious cycle.

People with Anxiety Disorders can often trace a history of "original anxiety." In other words, there is frequently a significant level of anxiety s/he learned to have in their early years they have carried with them. 28

Radiance January/February 2015

Remember, anxiety is a natural response to perceived danger, and perceived danger as a child can be significantly more intense than that of an adult. Children by nature lack the skill to adequately manage significant stress and anxiety and internalize it.

"When looking at anxiety disorders, it is important to see how the stimulus-reaction cycle becoomes progressively worse." Nearly every person I have worked with who has OCD or other anxiety disorders has a history of baseline nervousness. Again, recognition of baseline anxiety levels becomes an important part of recovery. I ask my clients to use a rating scale for their anxiety levels 1 through 5: 1. Without bothersome anxiety

2. Noticeable anxiety: Able to function in usual activities

3. Anxiety is prevalent: Interfering in ability to engage in usual activities

4. Anxiety is extremely uncomfortable: Not able to function in usual activities. Conscious fear of having a Panic Attack 5. Panic Attack: Physical symptoms (rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, sweaty palms, lightheadedness, terror,

and so forth)

s

s

The use of a scale helps to contain the anxiety and helps a person to view his/her feelings more objectively. The scale is used as a reference point multiple times a day.

The person begins to recognize more subtle fluctuations in feelings and practices prescribed skills to regulate them. The person then begins to build back self-trust and sees s/he is capable of experiencing different levels of day-to-day anxiety, recognizing it and regulating it.

It is essential the person sees it is a loss of faith in their ability to respond accordingly to people, places and situations that is the problem. They are afraid of their responses, not of the actual trigger. We wire the two things together in the brain when they are actually separate. The good news is recovery is possible with compassion, courage, patience, and commitment. Recovery is simple, but usually not easy. It involves a series of individualized physical and mental exercises to re-teach the brain how to respond to different levels of anxiety. These exercises are done daily and monitored and supported daily.

The basic idea is "Practice makes Progress." The more a person practices his/her recovery, the more progress will be made.

The goal is to restore a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to recognize and regulate his/ her feelings in an effective, loving way. This recognition and regulation is done consistently whether or not there is an uncomfortable level of anxiety. Human

TRUTH s CONSCIOUSNESS s BLISS when we remain in (or return to) the "front" of our brains where we are able to calmly and rationally, deal with our lives. We are amazing creatures with amazing brains. We have anxiety attacks as a perfectly natural reaction to our perception of intense danger and our drive to survive. We can learn to respond differently as a natural part of our need to trust ourselves, feel safe, and evolve. Anxiety can be crippling, but it is nature’s way of trying to protect us. With compassion and commitment, it is entirely possible to regain the ability to regulate a very natural response to life.

hat is Comforter Energy Heated Crystal Therapy?

I

am a skeptic. I'll admit it. I work at the Temple of Light and see amazing healings and transformations as part of my daily routine.

However, when I first met the practitioners who are now providing their services at the Temple in early September, I was skeptical. I believed I was in great physical health and wondered if the scan would show me something different. No medical information was taken before the scan. It was up to the software, developed by Russian engineers, to determine how healthy I was - or not.

However, after the process was explained and I was hooked up to the state-of-the-art sonar sound technology, I began to become a little more open-minded.

I was able to watch the computer monitor as the sonar "pinged" in my ears steadily. I watched as body parts were simulated on the screen on the left side and line graphs gauged what was "normal" for that particular body part and the information fed by the technology completed the graph with my results.

By Rev. Basia Christ, Ph.D. anything during the session. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to or not. After the session, Roland scanned those part which were treated with the device to see if there was any change. There was!

My heart improved 58% and the little red triangles were replaced with yellow squares. My brain improved 35% and no longer had any black squares to be seen. Once again, little yellow squares occupied those areas. I felt different in about an hour. More vibrant. More energy. Was this just a "placebo effect?" At first, I thought, "Maybe." However, after another treatment, I was convinced. I did feel better. I don't understand how the technology or the crystal device works I do know it does.

Of course, I had no idea how my body parts were going to compare. However, it was quite an experience.

Lenny Y., Long Beach said: “When I came to your center, my right eye had Stage 4 nerve damage after I suffered a stroke. After two weeks of treatment, my right eye is fully opened. Your Comforter Energy device is incredible. I has even given me more energy. My digestion system has improved. I recommend anyone who has a stroke or other disease to get crystal therapy.”

For approximately two hours, he adjusted the device on the body parts which had problems. I did not feel

The scan was completed in a half hour. Then came the results which Roland Rodriguez deciphered. The body I thought was in such great shape turned out to be not so healthy. My heart and brain showed problems indicated by the coding in the before pictures.Roland assured me the heated crystal device would help. 30

3 Reasons Why a Time-out Will Lead You to the Relationship You Desire

I

said, "I'm being shown an open space. This space is going to last three to four months. This space is all about you. The purpose of this space is to get reacquainted with you, to figure out what is important to you and what you want in your next relationship. Does that make sense?"

"Three to four months? I have to wait that long?" Kate asked. "It isn't that long. In fact, you could take six to nine months to do the work, but three to four is what I'm being told," I explained. "I don't know if I can go that long without dating anyone or trying to meet someone," Kate said.

"It's up to you. One thing to keep in mind is this work needs to be done. If you don't want to do it now, that's okay. You will, however, end up 32

Radiance January/February 2015

By Ellany Kincross doing it later," I said.

"I don't think I'm ready for this," Kate admitted.

"You wouldn't be in this place, if the timing weren't right. Remember that," I said. Kate is dealing with a single woman's dilemma: Take a time-out from dating or forge ahead into the same old?

On one hand, there is the opportunity for her to get clarity on what she truly desires. On the other hand, there is resistance to taking herself out of the dating pool. Does Kate's situation sound familiar? If you find yourself no closer to meeting Mr. or Ms. Right, here are three reasons why a time-out is the answer to all your dating disappointments.

Reason #1: History We've all heard the expression that "history repeats itself." So does the law of attraction. The law of attraction says "like attracts like." With this in mind, how can you change your dating law of attraction?' You create change by looking at, reviewing, and analyzing your dating history. When you give attention to the past, you gain a new perspective. This new perspective changes how you perceive the world and how others perceive you. In evaluating the past, you ask yourself what you liked and disliked about your previous relationships. You review the choices you made and the choices your partner made. You look at your mistakes. You look at


TRUTH s CONSCIOUSNESS s BLISS your partner's mistakes. You look at what you learned. You look at what your partner taught you. You think about what you taught your partner. You ask yourself, if your needs were fulfilled or unfulfilled.

In order to reap the benefits of this historical review, a commitment of time, effort, and energy is required. When entering into this period of reflection, you have the opportunity to approach your past relationship(s) from two different perspectives.

In the first, you recall the relationship from a place of disappointment. You focus on what you didn't receive from your partner and how he or she failed to place importance on what you wanted.

In the second, you recall the relationship from a place of gratitude. You see the ways in which both parties in the relationship served to help the other with their lessons and teachings. The latter approach is the most desirable one when attempting to shift your law of attraction.

Reason #2: Get Re-Acquainted

"Getting to know you, getting to know all about you. Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me" Getting to Know You from the King and I by Rogers and Hammerstein

Getting to know who you are is the second reason why a time-out is vital.

The biggest question to ask during this phase is: "Who am I outside of a relationship?" This leads to other questions: "What do I want? What is important to me? What makes me

happy? What gives me joy? What makes me sad? What makes me fearful? What can I tolerate? What can I live without?"

It should come as no surprise that who you are inside a relationship differs from who you are outside of a relationship. Additionally, your needs and wants change from who you are in your early 20's to the person you become in your late 20's and into your 30's.

Similarly, the person you are in your 30's changes significantly to the person you become when you approach and turn 40. This pattern follows throughout your 40's, 50's, etc. Outside of a relationship, you rediscover and re-connect with those parts and pieces of ourselves you often don't allow into your relationships. Here is an example.

After doing yoga for five years, Lilia decided she wanted to be a yoga teacher. She felt she had a lot to share with beginner yoga enthusiasts. Lilia loved her yoga training. She dove deeply into the yoga sutras, began meditating daily and easily adapted to a yogini lifestyle. Upon completion of her training, Lilia found a job teaching yoga for a local college. Each semester, she embraced the opportunity to teach a new crop of faces.

In her classes, Lilia guided her students to find the union of body, mind and spirit within themselves. After teaching for two years, Lilia received a call from Desiree, Lilia's classmate in the yoga teachertraining program. "She asked if I would cover her yoga class for a few weeks. She

was traveling to India for spiritual retreat." Of course, I told her, "yes."

"I met Bobby the first week of class. We immediately clicked. Almost at once, we started spending a lot of time together. It was fun. It was great. We went to vegetarian restaurants and took early morning yoga classes on the weekends. It was wonderful.

"Then somehow, I went off course. I stopped my daily meditations. Instead, I struggled to find 15-20 minutes two to three times a week to meditate. My daily yoga practice suffered, too. "I'm not sure what triggered it, but at one point Bobby was no longer interested in eating vegetarian food. He wanted to go to regular restaurants. "Over time, I stopped being a vegetarian altogether. We broke up a year later. I was still teaching yoga, however, I had lost my passion for it. I barely meditated and hadn't read the sutras in months. I felt like a fraud," Lilia explained. "You needed a time-out?" I asked.

"Yes. I took time to review the relationship. I wanted to see where things had gone wrong. I wanted to know why I had made the choices I had made. I had been so passionate about yoga and living the life of a yogini and yet I had thrown it all away. Why? "Initially, I blamed Bobby for my choices. One day while meditating, I realized I needed to take responsibilities for my choices.

"For some reason, I had let myself go. I'd lost the deep connection

<<continued from page 33 I'd always received from engaging in yoga and meditation. I realized I'd missed that connection. More importantly, I knew I needed to have that connection and could not sacrifice it again." Lilia admitted. "In other words, you learned a valuable lesson about yourself. You need to have yoga and meditation be a part of your daily life whether you are in a relationship with someone or not," I said

"Exactly, but now I'm afraid I'll make the same choice again or I won't find anyone who shares my passion in the way I do," Lilia admitted. "You will find someone. The lesson in this situation is to stay true to what's important to you. This will be your test in the next relationship," I added.

Lilia's post-relationship period of introspection enabled her to reconnect with herself and invite yoga and meditation back into her life. If she had jumped from her relationship with Bobby to another relationship, she may have never rediscovered the passion she felt for yoga and the spark it ignites within her.

Reason #3: Try new things Remember the salsa class you wanted to take? The Conversational French II class you signed up for 18 months ago, but never started? Where did you put the books you purchased for the pastry making class you wanted to take? Can you find that new pair of skis you put in your storage locker? Did you keep the email that detailed the

34

Radiance January/February 2015

s tour to Stonehenge? What about the weekend hiking retreat? The martial arts class? The real estate certification class? When you make a commitment to do something for yourself, you feel better about yourself. This is you giving yourself something you want. When you are good to yourself, you change your law of attraction. How?

Because you are honoring that part of yourself that wants something new. When you change your law of attraction, you change the way people respond, react, and communicate with you. When you deny or dismiss the part of you that wants to expand or wants to experience something, you self-sabotage. In dismissing your soul's desire to grow you lose opportunities to evolve. At the beginning of your timeout journey, you have questions, you have concerns, and you have uncertainty.

Over time, you will gain lucid, crystalclear, laser-like clarity. This lucidity is achieved when you allow yourself the space, the time, the days, the weeks, the months, or even a year to know with certainty what you want from that next relationship. The clarity also enables you to know you what don't want. "I can see clearly now the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way. Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind It's gonna be a bright, bright sun shining day."

By Johnny Nash A time-out is similar to a caterpillar turning into a butterfly or the egg becoming a baby chick. It is a period of rebirth. It is the place where you

s

recreate yourself.

A time-out enables you to evolve towards whole-ness. From this space, you attract someone who is also more whole.

How do you do that? The clarity that comes as the end result of a time-out enables you to shift to a place where you can visualize the relationship you desire. At this point, you become an active participant in creating and manifesting this relationship by using the law of attraction. You now take responsibility for the partner you draw in. From this place of responsibility, you acknowledge the road you have walked, the lessons you have learned and the teachings still to come. You enter into this relationship from a place of awareness and gratitude. When you enter into a relationship from this profound space, you are destined to attain a beautiful result.

to the Heart By Lesa Ferguson

or as long I can remember, I always wanted to help, heal, or make someone feel better.

When I was seven-years-old, my little puppy died. I remember praying and putting my hands on him trying to give him peace. This has always been part of my life. I love being at service and holding space for others. I feel we are here together on this beautiful planet and everyone has a role to play. Mine is to create safe sacred space for myself and others, be love, and allow the Divine magic to happen.

I found John of God in 2012 while traveling through Brazil for four months. Afterward, I experienced Living off Light for 21 days and visited more sacred places throughout Brazil. I went Abadiania, a small village 1.5 hours outside the capital of Brasila, and experienced a Medium and Healer name Joao De Deus “John of Go.” I call him a modern day Saint. As soon I arrived, my heart felt like it was home. It was something I had never felt before. My heart fully flowered and I called this place “The Flowering of Heart”.”

It was there I had my first awakening experience during which I could feel every living thing and was one with everything. It was beautiful. The strange thing is I asked when I saw Medium Joao for an Awakening and a new home (I was very specific) because I was traveling abroad and had no idea where I was going to live or what my mission in life was to be. 36

Radiance January/February 2015

After two weeks in Abadiania, I traveled another month and had a calling to go back to the U.S. Within a few weeks, I was blessed with a place I now call home which is everything I wanted. I am following my path in being of service and doing what I love.

A year and a half later, my friends asked if I would arrange for them to visit John of God since I knew the protocol and what is involved. I not only agreed I also went with them. It was during this trip I realized my gift and learned what the true meaning of holding space for someone meant. John of God is a place that will open you up fully, a place where you can feel vulnerable.

This is what I provide. I was there so they could go deep into their healing, transformation, or be in the process. It happened so organically without thinking. I was their guide. I knew this is what I wanted to do, bring people to experience John of God. It is humbling to be trusted and able to support others. My goal is for each individual to have the best personal experience and receive what is for their highest good and have their own transformation.

I was blessed by the entities to be Guide and also a "Daughter of the Casa.” Since then, I have accompanied three more groups. My life has changed profoundly through my travels to

Abadiania. My heart is filled with peace. I am growing internally and consciously each moment. I have clarity on my life mission and the gift of inner knowing and wisdom of my self.

One of her clients, Doug McClure, said, "Having Lesa Ferguson as my personal guide for John of God in Brazil resulted in one of the most AMAZING experiences in my life (and I've had many)! She provided such personal care and commitment to serve EVERYONE in our group, it simply would not have been the same without her expert knowledge and insights into this profoundly unique and life changing experience. I look forward to having her be my guide again and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!."

Lesa Ferguson is a certified guide and has been blessed as a "Daughter of the Casa" by the Entities. She is a Natural Healer, Oneness Trainer, Kwan Yin Reiki Practitioner, and specializes in Individual Life Transformation. She has been on a spiritual path/journey for 15 years and traveled to different parts of the world experiencing different cultures and spiritual practices. She is a loving, nurturing, non-intrusive, insightful and practical guide. Her expertise in organization and logistics, as well as personal transformation, will keep you feeling safe and fully supported. She has returned several times and discovered her purpose is to be in the flow of grace, holding space for people as they find their way to inner peace and transformation. Her focus as your guide is to support you throughout your unique experience and journey with Love and Light.

I will continue taking groups to John of God for as long I am called. Jaoa de Jeus has been doing this work for 50 years and is now in his 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I want to share his love with the world. He is a man of pure love, generosity, and selflessness to helping humanity. It is place to be experience at least once in your life; but many return.

ow You End One Year is How You Begin the Next By Rev. Basia Christ, Ph.D.

O

n December 8, I was a co-host on an Internet radio show which was titled what the headline of this article is.

I never heard this expression before. Since doing the show, I've reflected on the many endings of one year and the beginning of a new year I've lived.. One came to mind which I remember vividly. Many of you probably may have memories of the same New Year's Eve - December 31, 1999.

The world was wondering if Y2K was going to cause computers and financial structure to crash. We wondered if anythinhg would work on January 1, 2000. I was celebrating in 60 degrees at midnight on the streets of Naperville, Illinois in summer clothes. Everyone was out because weather like that was unusual even in the Chicago area known for its wildly fluctuating weather patterns. 38

Radiance January/February 2015

Even the strange weather was not on my mind. I had only been divorced from my second husband for three months and living alone for the first time in a beautiful townhouse. I had a great job with a decent salary, traveling extensively, had lots of wonderful friends and family, and good health.

As I looked at the sky admiring the stars (which you usually cannot see because of the smog), I wondered what the New Year would bring.

I ended that year with hope for the future. During the next two years, I continued the upswing until I relocated to SoCal in 2001, right after 9/11.

When the recession, then depression, hit a few years ago, I was amongst those who had been laid off, with no hope of making anywhere close to what I was used to making. During the next few years, I lived through another "dark night of the soul." Each year beginning the way the previous year ended. December 31, 2013 ended with my cash flow becoming a cash "drip." I was in dire financial straits - again.

By June, things began to turn around. I was getting more freelance

work and Rev. Danielle hired me to become Executive Director of the Temple of Light.

I came to work for the Temple just when it was going through financial problems of its own. Just six months later, things have turned around - for the Temple and me, too.

I am ending this year on an upswing. I published my book after working on it for eight years and people are not just buying it, they are giving it wonderful reviews. My freelance work continues to grow and I love working at the Temple. If I believe, "how you end one year is how you begin the next, (which I do), 2015 should be prosperous.

If you are in despair, fearful, and dissatisfied with your life, consider ending the year by helping others and begin the New Year on a high note. May 2015 be your best year! Rev.

Celebrating s

s

the New Year: From Ancient Times to Today By Jasmine Rice

T

he range of New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day celebrations stems from the ways ancient societies used to greet the new harvest seasons. In fact, it is the number of harvests, whether of fruit or grain, which determined how the New Year was observed. The origins of the customs we associate with celebrating the New Year have roots in how ancient peoples regarded the New Year. In other ancient societies around the world, the New Year festivities were observed in our wild forests and plains by the native Indians. To the Creek Indians, the ripening of the corn in late summer signified the termination of one year and the beginning of another. It was their custom to drape themselves with new clothes, replace the old interiors of their households. The Iroquois, another native Indian tribe who inaugurated the new year in January, February or March with ceremonies focused on driving away evil spirits. They made noise, disguised themselves with masks, and confessed their sins.

Symbolically, New Year signifies a renewal of life which is where the celebration of regeneration, ridding ourselves of the old and replacing it with the new. The customs and practices, though modified through the centuries, 40

Radiance January/February 2015

have distinct ways in which we welcome each New Year.

The Dutch in their New Amsterdam settlement at mid17th century originated the modern American New Year celebration. It was their most important holiday for these people who were known throughout the colonies for their love of beer and wine. Following are other New Year's Day revelry with their historical trails:

The Mid-night cacophony

The reason we make deafening noise was originally done to drive away evil spirits who flocked to the living at this climactic season with the wailing of horns, shouts, and beating of drums. This is why, at the stroke of midnight, we hear the deafening cacophony of sirens, car horns, boat whistles, party horns, church bells, drums, pots and pans.

The Spectacular Parades

The popular Tournament of Roses Parade held on this day in Pasadena, CA, was started in 1886 by the Valley Hunt Club. Their members decorated their carriages

world that existed before the ordered cosmos was created by God.

Resolutions

In order to have a “clean slate” on which to start the New Year, people in ancient times made certain they had all their borrowings paid. Those were the days before such complexities as credit buying. The New Year resolutions, of which we are so fond, represent our efforts to make the year brand new. In fact, many say that in the New Year they are “turning over a new leaf.”

Luck in the New Year with flowers, creating what was meant to be “an artistic celebration of the ripening of the oranges in California.” In the afternoon, athletic events were held. The city of Pasadena later relieved the club of sponsorship of the parade, and the City succeeded by the Tournament of Roses Association which continues to direct the activities. Gradually the flower-decked carriages gave way to floats which, by parade rules, can be covered only with fresh flowers. Another annual attraction, the Rose Bowl football game, became part of the festivities in 1902.

The traditional and spectacular Mummers’ Parade of Philadelphia owes its origin to the Christmas celebrations of the Swedes and the Englishmen who settled along the Delaware River. The masked revelers among the Swedes made sure the Christmas festivities lasted until the New Year. The English brought with them their ancient practice of mumming. This, in America, took the form of groups of men presenting costumed plays, going from house to house reciting their parts in expectation of money or some Christmas fare. Since then the parade has been divided into three main sections: the fancy-dress division, the clown division, and the string bands.

It is traditionally thought that the first day of the year is symptomatic of the approaching 364 days. People try to spend the first day of the New Year in the best possible way in the company of family and friends. It was once believed to be a good omen if a tall dark-haired man visits your house on New Year's Day. Traditional New Year foods are also thought to bring good luck. In many cultures, it is a predominant belief that anything in the shape of a ring brings luck, because it symbolizes “coming full circle,” completing a year's cycle. It is for this reason the Dutch believe eating donuts on New Year's Day brings good fortune. Black-eyed peas and other legumes are considered good luck in many cultures. The hog and its meat are considered lucky because the animal symbolizes prosperity. Consuming cabbage is continued on page 42>>

The Booze Bash

The unbridled drinking bash on the New Year's Eve is also a secular leftover of a religious rite. The original spirit has been a personal re-enacting of the chaotic
