ach of us has a responsibility for all humankind. It is time for us to think of other people as true brothers and sisters and to be concerned with their welfare, with lessening their suffering. Even if you cannot sacrifice your own benefit entirely, you should not forget the concerns of others. We should think more about the future benefit of all humanity.... This is my simple religion.

Divine - subjective - reality in

all there is By Charles Zinner


he most common spiritual definition of “God” is that He/she is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. From this point, the dogma and doctrine of most religions takes over, and we end up with rules and regulations governing our religious and mundane life. The fact is, “God”, and religious doctrine are construed according to one’s subjective reality. Reality, is a subjective perception of patterns and events that happen on different levels – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. At the beginning of perceptual reality are thoughts. Thoughts which are repeated, have energy and eventually become beliefs which influence our choices and actions. This can be termed one’s consciousness, that is, one’s awareness in life. This is a subjective state of being, completely and voluntarily changeable, but few break out of their selfimposed beliefs. How does this relate to God and or religions? One’s level of consciousness determines one’s ability to define and understand God, or at least believe one can understand the Divine. Examples of varying consciousness levels as they pertain to the mundane would be a person who is always fearful and angry; another level is the person who is calm and handles life with more equanimity; or the person who is who embodies more Light and acts spiritually,

8 august 2016 • Tampa Bay Wellness

thus spreading love and compassion. In the case of any of the aforementioned, the thoughts, beliefs and perceptions of the Divine vary greatly. For example as in the definition of the Divine being omnipotent, certainly the person who has a less enlightened consciousness will take the concept of omnipotence and frame it in a human or anthropomorphic point of view. Most often, a religion, will take the concept of God, and create a fabric of reality in which there is to be terrible and apocalyptic events at the end of times. There will be devastation, loss of life, limb and property with tribulations and immense suffering. Out of the violence and physical trials, the heavenly abode will come down from the skies and all “true “ believers will be saved and go to a place of ultimate peace, etc. What is prominent in that type of consciousness is fear and anger – the anger of an angry god …. a reflection of the fearful consciousness of those who feel that fear is integral to the functioning of the universe. It is a personal, wrathful and destructive “God” that takes it out on humanity. It makes humanity a victim of the lower fearful emotions common to turmoil and stressful existence with the fear of death at the pinnacle of all these dreadful aspects. The belief is this “God” must fight to prevail against the forces of darkness, and that

human existence is a onetime affair. The more enlightened (aware) consciousness will see repeating cycles and ever evolving higher purposes of the Laws of the Universe. Propagated by a higher understanding, the more enlightened realize that the entire tenor of energy of this “God” is oriented towards peace, love, compassion and understanding. The enlightened realize that all is not ruled by an anthropomorphic jealous “God” and that there is nothing to fear. This consciousness allows one to continue exploring and evolving spiritually, and it encourages this since the prohibitions and rules restricting individual thoughts and actions are not applicable. There is the knowledge that death is merely a door to step through for continued evolution, that it is not the end of our existence. This “God”, while impersonal but equanimous, exudes the totality of love and light – there is no rival to this God of light and love and certainly no need to struggle against the so-called forces of darkness since “God” is omnipotent. God is total and complete and needs absolutely nothing. As we are individualized aspects of the Divine (God/All That Is/Creator) we are inseparably one with that energy…we only need to go within and listen. So in reality, subjective as it is, consciousness is the key factor in our life and continued spiritual evolution. The evoluContact us 813-501-4894 •

tionary path is, however, to our perception, slow and time consuming depending on our efforts. So how do we increase our awareness and understanding (consciousness)? It is through internal examination, inner development and consistent effort. Meditation, exposing ourselves to spiritual leaders, or being in environments we know or perceive to be of higher awareness, are constructive actions. While there are many types of meditation, the key to the individual’s consciousness development is to learn to quiet the mind and through communion with the internal Divine aspect within our being, learn to be in union with All That Is. One of the most powerful and effective ways to quiet the mind is through calming breathwork. Another is Reiki and then there are other methods to include self-hypnosis, calming music, mantras and others. While at first, one may not perceive that Divine aspect within, after a short time, the peace and calmness allows an understanding of the “God” within. Continued consistent communion contributes to changes on all levels. Subtle but powerful insights are gained, along with intuitive development • To Advertise Call 813-501-4894

and spiritual gifts. One successful example of consistent and intense meditation is the doctor that practiced looking inward during meditation. This looking inward and reflection, also known as mindfulness, led to the unleashing of higher spiritual energies, and resulted in expanded awareness (consciousness). He became a renowned spiritual leader, author and powerful healer. Thus, one can see, it is the “God” within that is the key to understanding more and higher spiritual truths. The Divine within, along with a deeper esoteric understanding of spiritual and religious truths can propel

one’s consciousness to greater heights! Enjoy the journey – life is to be enjoyed! Rev. Charles Zinner, M.S. holds a Master’s Degree in Education and is a spiritual teacher, healer and Reiki Master.

Dr. Hansen’s research and personal work with clients, “We live in a society that asks us to “fake it” constantly. To put on a mask that makes us disconnect with who we really are and our personal values all in the name of fitting in to where we think we “should” be according to some unnamed source. This constant striving, masking and “faking it” has caused many of my clients to run to addictions such as emotional over eating, overwhelming stress, self criticism & self loathing, as well as an addiction to control. I help them create a better relationship with themselves so they can have a better relationships with others, their life and the world.” Dr. Hansen has worked with women around the country and over seas, teaching them how to free themselves from overwhelming toxic stress, self-sabotage and self doubt to become their own best friend instead of their own worst enemy.

Perspective on Religion

By Carolyn Puckett


eligion has existed in every part of the world, throughout the eons of human existence and once started, religions continued through the generations in those cultures. The missing piece to understanding the higher perspective on religions is the truth that we have reincarnated to Earth many lifetimes to evolve on Earth School until we gain the ascended mastery. If each person has had hundreds or thousands of past lives in human form, that means each person would have had experiences in hundreds or more different cultures around the world and many different religions. This knowledge brings enlightenment on the topic of religions. There is no one religion that is supreme over another. Each religion has something to teach about spiritual living, knowledge and faith. The creation of spiritual practice was to assist in the growth of one’s spiritual evolution while embodied as human on Earth. Faith is knowing there is a God, a Divine all-knowing and Supreme Creator. Faith is knowing you are not alone, and there are hierarchies of higher presences available for guidance, assistance and protection.

It is only through the challenging experiences of life and having had faith to rise above it to see it through that allow us to have more faith and wisdom. There are many unknowns, challenges, twists and turns in life and those are the stories that bring us to dig deeper into our spiritual connection, a deeper level of faith building, for help and guidance. Challenges that require faith in order to move forward are the stories of our lives that grow faith. Also, to accomplish our higher life purpose, we have to connect to our higher-self and higher (spirit) guides to receive knowledge, guidance and assistance. The soul returns in other reincarnated human lives to journey in different locations, circumstances and cultures to gain experience and wisdom. The soul is everlasting. As part of Earth School, the soul can forget, as negativity, programs and false belief systems can shut down aspects of the soul and spirit. It becomes one’s journey to seek to find one’s true self and all can be remembered. As we are awakening to unity consciousness, the knowing that we are all from one God source, we are setting off to live out this life’s destiny with greater soul evolu-

tion, spiritual expansion, new and vast experiences to gain and live with higher states of mastery.

[Reprinted from THE THEOSOPHICAL MOVEMENT, July 1965.]

From Blind Belief to Enlightened Faith “With faith all things are possible.” The sceptical laugh at faith and pride themselves on its absence from their own minds. The truth is that faith is a great engine, an enormous power, which in fact can accomplish all things. For it is the covenant or engagement between man’s divine part and his lesser self. —Light on the Path


an is more important than any organization or belief and is responsible for any use he makes of either. “Believe nothing unless it conforms with reason and common sense,” is one of the most important teachings ever given. It throws the whole responsibility on man, and it destroys all idea of infallibility. Exclusive claims made by individuals and bodies of individuals, on their own behalf or on behalf of others, all arise from—belief. No real Sage ever claimed a unique position for himself, for his knowledge and insight tell him that Nature is uniform and universal and that there are no unique, solitary phenomena in any of her kingdoms. If a claim is made on behalf of any religion that its prophet or its position is unique, that claim carries its condemnation within itself. Any calm thinker cannot but come to this conclusion, as also see the absurdity of the belief held and the claim made by many that their own race, or political ideology, or social customs and way of life, are the best. These and other beliefs are held because people do not use the light of their intelligence in examining them. Beliefs are blind, and the blind have no breadth of vision, no liberality of view. The progress of human consciousness takes this course—blind belief, reasoned knowledge, enlightened faith. When a person applies the light of his mind to his own beliefs, he finds out which among them are false and which can be justified

14 august 2016 • Tampa Bay Wellness

at the bar of reason and knowledge. If anyone says that to matters of belief the test of reason and the light of knowledge should not be applied, then he falsifies the entire experience of history. Blind belief is not to be mistaken for faith, and the latter is superior to reason. Faith may be defined as the instinct of the Soul; it is born of intuition and the latter is the power of the soul, direct perception, which impresses the consciousness from above, beyond or within, and which brings into manifestation some expression of one or more innate ideas native to the Soul. But, unless instinctive faith or intuition receives the support of reason, the faith remains unenlightened. Unenlightened faith is akin to blind belief. Loss of faith occurs through faulty reasoning and false knowledge. Enlightened faith arises in the mind freed from passion and prejudices and engaged in the consideration of true, ennobling ideas. When the mind is impressed with sense-data, and desires and passions press it into their service, it lends them its own power of reasoning. In our scientific civilization, which takes sense-data as the foundation for all knowledge and regards the soul as the ephemeral product of brain-processes, logic and reason are enthroned in the highest seats of judgment. It is well known that when the faith remains unenlightened, it is likely to fall prey to the machinations of reason. In these days when head-learning is so much in demand and soul-wisdom at a discount, it is necessary for each to take

precautions to distinguish between blind belief and faith and take measures to enlighten his faith. Men and women need some study of great ideas which widen the mental horizon and deepen human insight. Mental food is as necessary as bread and milk for the body, if not more so. There is a great deal of false knowledge abroad, in the domain of sciences as of religion, and some of it is highly dangerous. Two difficulties beset men and women in the acquiring of knowledge. The first arises from their own mental laziness: how many would willingly take the trouble to question their own beliefs, to gather evidence, pro and con; to sit like an impartial judge and not to plead like a barrister for the side he is defending? The second difficulty arises because we do not persist in pursuing our inquiry into our beliefs. Again and again man has freed himself from one set of beliefs, from one organization or another, only to find himself in the grip of others. Although in many countries the individual has freed himself greatly from the power of organized religion, has also freed himself to a certain extent in the realm of politics, he is becoming fast bound by the idea of the infallibility of science. He is giving his life over to science as his forefathers gave theirs over to the witch doctor or the Church or the State. Many an individual has abandoned reason and failed to apply the test of intelligence to so-called scientific facts. Dogmatism about scientific theories Contact us 813-501-4894 •

is as great an evil as the dogmatism of religious beliefs. For instance, the evolution of man from the animals and the negation of soul, scientifically put forward, form the basis of the ordinary person’s understanding of life and make him live rather like an evolving animal than as an unfolding god. That aspect of science which affects us most today is the medical, and how many use the results of scientific methods without studying the common-sense attitude towards body and disease! Blind belief passing through the fire of reason emerges as enlightened faith, casting off the ashes of exclusiveness, fanaticism and bigotry. If a man of religious belief passed from blind belief to real knowledge and practised the ethics of his own creed, he would soon be forced to discard the exclusiveness of that creed and to embody its universal aspects. Thus enlightened faith comes to birth. In the words of Robert Crosbie: If one places his faith on any externality, whatever it may be—gods or men, religions or systems of thought—he has placed it upon a broken reed; he has limited the very power of his own spirit to expand itself beyond the limitations of his ideal. When, for instance, we accept the idea that nothing is real but that which we can see or hear or taste or smell or touch, we have placed our faith on a very low basis. There is some reason for our falsity of thought and action, when we have assumed the present moment to be the only moment, the outward terrestrial world and this one existence to be the only life, from which we go, we know not where, nor to what purpose it all has been. To look on all beings according to one’s own limitation of mind and range of perception, and to see only their externalities of speech or action in accordance, is not seeing them as they really are. An outside God, or an outside devil, and outside Law, and outside atonement for sins, the idea of sin being other than a denial of our own spiritual nature (the unpardonable sin), are all external faiths of the nature of tamas, or ignorance. Ignorance always leads to superstition. Superstition leads to false belief, and false belief to false faith. We are all in constant conflict with each other because of false bases of faith, for the very reason that faith fixed on anything will bring results, and men are blinded to real and true faith by the results of even false faith. Yet so long as we have a false faith shall we continue to create for ourselves lives of misery. The results flowing from a false faith in a selfish ideal must bring us bad effects in wrong conditions. They are the very limitations we have imposed upon ourselves by external faiths in other lives, and we must come again and again into bodies until we have rid ourselves of the defects in our nature which those external faiths have engendered. We have to get a better basis for thought and action than the false faith of the likes and dislikes we have obtained by heredity. We have produced the effects we see, but we need not go on repeating the same mistakes life after life, if we will but change our ideals. We have to find a true basis of faith. We have to place our faith upon that which is not external, but internal. (The Friendly Philosopher, pp. 354-55) Let each one look at himself and determine his own place on the ladder of evolution: Is he sunk in the mire of disbelief, acting for his own sense-pleasure according to what he calls his own principles, devoid of virtue—a blind man yet too conceited • To Advertise Call 813-501-4894

to follow anyone or anything? Is he standing on the rung of blind belief, acting without knowledge, groping in the dark after his own blind leader and yet satisfied with himself? Is he using his reason by obtaining knowledge, going so far and no further, or is he forging ahead, slowly but steadily, purifying his mind, practising virtue, controlling his senses and organs, developing the spirit in the cave of his own heart? Is he one who has found peace and contentment born of conviction and enlightened faith? Does he know why he should not have angry thoughts but should possess a gentle mind and thus be capable of exercising that mind; why he should have a pure heart free from the complexities which egotism brings in its train and so be able to exercise the simplicity of that heart? Does he understand that generosity in the small, plain duties of life will surely kill all selfishness, and is he therefore performing those duties in the right way? How few are the men of enlightened faith in our midst! No wonder there is so much of strife and unrest in the world today! The man of true faith, who is of gracious mind and pure heart, is on his way to the haven of Peace that passeth understanding, of Bliss beyond compare.

Men and parties, sects and schools are but the mere ephemera of the world’s day. Truth, high-seated upon its rock of adamant, is alone eternal and supreme. —Isis Unveiled, Preface

The Sequence of Change 3 steps to enact change in your life and move aggressively towards your passion right NOW!

By Terence Young, ACB


oes anyone really like change? For the most part the answer to that question is an emphatic NO!! Why?? Because we are creatures of habit. We like to keep things the way they are. The funny thing about it is we are living in a Universe where everything is changing all the time. Have you ever thought about the fact that your body is continually changing at all times. Every atom in your body is moving right now at this very moment. As a matter of fact 50,000 cells just died in your body while you read this passage and were replaced by 50,000 more cells instantly. This happens every 3 seconds of your existence for your entire life. The Universe is continually changing as well. Expanding as we speak. So is there anything that doesn’t change? Some people may say that God doesn’t change. Well to that I would ask a question; “have you ever thought that the only thing about God that doesn’t change is the fact that God is always changing?” Just a thought… So with the realization that everything, and I mean everything in the Universe is continually changing I’ve come to the conclusion that we should be open to change as well. As a matter of fact we should be excited about change. Enthusiastic about change! Change is what makes the world go around! Literally!! I’ve learned in my life that change can be hard but it is always for my good (When I choose to look for the good.) Over the past 15 years I’ve developed a fool proof plan on how to deal with change to improve one’s life. Accepting change, adapting to change and moving on to your passion takes a commitment and work. It all must be done in a particular sequence if you want to succeed. If you choose to adopt the Sequence of Change I guarantee your life will never be the same. Enjoy the ride…

16 august 2016 • Tampa Bay Wellness

One of the people I consider to be a mentor of mine is the late great Jim Rohn. Jim once said “if you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.” I love this quote and I believe it to be true. I agree with Jim in that we have the power to change anything we want in our lives. And sometimes we wait way too long to make those changes. What’s interesting is this. I believe people aren’t struggling with knowing that IT (whatever it is) needs to change in their lives, people are struggling with HOW to change it. This article is dedicated to teaching you how to go about enacting change in your life and doing it right NOW. You see it’s easy to say you’re going to change something in your life however it’s much more difficult to work through the process of that change. In the next few pages I’m going to give you the guidelines on how to walk through changing any aspect of your life that you don’t like and move aggressively in the direction of something that fills you up and gives you purpose. Get ready for a breakthrough as I introduce you to the Sequence of Change.

Change Your Beliefs

“Live your Beliefs and you can turn the world around.” - Henry David Thoreau Your beliefs are the most important part of your life and the most important part of the Sequence of Change. Why?? Because you’ve had them all your life!! Research shows that most people have 95% of their beliefs by the time they are 5-7 years old. You most certainly are living your beliefs whether you know it or not. Your beliefs can literally make the impossible possible.

The Belief Challenge

1) Analyze your major beliefs about: life, family, work, play, politics, religion etc.

2) Take a piece of paper and write down “I believe… and fill in your answers about the above topics 3) Take a second sheet of paper and write down “I believe”… and this time write the opposite of what you previously put down as your core beliefs. (Resist the urge to justify why you believe something, just write down the opposite or opposing answer. For example you can use Democrat /Republican, Seminoles / Gators, College Education/ No College, Entrepreneur/Employee, Religion/No religion 4) Now here’s the fun part. Go back and justify why you believe each one of them on both sides. For example justify why you believe it’s better to be a Democrat and then justify why it’s better to be a Republican. Do this for all of your core beliefs. I know it’s not easy but have fun with it. Look for the good and you will find it If you haven’t realized it yet, this is an exercise on perspective. Seeing things from the other person’s point of view. Challenge your beliefs and you will start to see how we are a lot more alike than we are different. Remember when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. This exercise will really get you in the mindset of knowing your beliefs, questioning your beliefs and changing them if necessary. It is vital that you can recognize when you need to change a belief that is holding you back. This is the first step of the Sequence of Change. Change your Beliefs. Once you are comfortable with the process of changing your beliefs you are ready to move to the next step of the process.

Change Your Thoughts

“Thoughts become things. Choose the good ones.” - Mike Dooley The second part of the process is

Contact us 813-501-4894 •

changing your thoughts. Mike Dooley nailed it when he said thoughts become things. Everything that exists in the physical world was first a thought. It can be no other way. Therefore our thoughts have power. You see as human beings we are Teleological which means we move towards what we think about. So if you continue to hold positive thoughts you will continue to have a positive experience in life. Of course the opposite is also true. If you continue to think negative thoughts you will continue to have a negative experience in life. Have you ever met a person who is always negative? I know we all know someone like that. It seems no matter what, they find a problem with everything. If you’re thinking negative the Universe will continue to give you experiences of negativity because the Universe always says yes… My Reverend once told me “you don’t have to believe everything you think. She was right. We must be vigilant of our thoughts at all times. Anytime we feel a negative thought creeping up we must cancel it out right then and there and then choose again. So how do we change our thoughts? Here is one way to help you change your thoughts: Meditation. Connecting with the Christ within. There are many different ways to meditate. Some say get into a quiet place and this does work but for me I meditate when I run as well. The most important thing about meditation is this: go inside, quiet your mind and connect with your higher power. The more you are able to quiet your mind the easier it is to get the answers you need from spirit. Studies show we think about 65,000 thoughts per day so this is no easy task. It will take practice and work but if you commit to it I promise you it will change your life. Below is a meditation that I use. Use it as a template to get you centered and focused on letting go of negative thoughts

Thoughts Meditation

Relax body – release tension in shoulders, eyes, mouth Legs, arms (all though your body - exhale) Breathe in, breathe out. Repeat this 3x. On the last exhale end with a sigh. (Releasing all tension and stress) Say - “I AM open to Spirit’s Guidance” Repeat - “I AM Open to spirit, my Christ Within “(3 x) Easily slowly, draw your attention inward and affirm “I let spirit guide my thoughts today.” Repeat (3x) Think of the beautiful Yellow Sun. Think of your connection to that and how it provides everything that you need. Marvel at how beautiful it is. How beautiful it feels to be in the sun. Let this feeling sink in and just enjoy the warmth of the “sun” in silence for a few minutes. Gently Affirm - “I let go of any and all thoughts that no longer serve my unfolding good. I let spirit guide my thoughts today.” (3 x) Bring your attention to your solar plexus (center of your body below the ribcage) solar means sun and plexus means center. The Sun Center of your body. Take your concentration, your attention, and your thoughts to this place Gently Affirm: I Am One with all that is. My thoughts are guided by my Spirit within: End with a Thank you God, Spirit, Universe or whatever • To Advertise Call 813-501-4894

name you choose to call your higher power. Amen Add meditation to your daily routine. I recommend starting out with 5 minutes per day and then building from there. Do it where ever it is comfortable for you. This is important to remember. Meditation is not about concentrating on anything. It’s about letting go and letting God in. Once you let go and let God in, you will be able to Change your thoughts.

Change Your Actions

“Action is the foundational key to all Success.” - Pablo Picasso You’ve done the hard work, now it’s time for the final piece of the Sequence of Change. That’s right, take action!! In order to complete the Sequence you must take action otherwise you’ve done all that work for nothing. Here’s the great thing about taking action. You don’t have to know what to do. Just do something. You can’t make a wrong turn. If the choice you make isn’t the “right” choice you simply learn and then do something else the next time. Take what I like to call “Imperfect Action.” Nothing is ever perfect but moving forward and taking some type of action is always better than being paralyzed by fear. We all learn and grow when we take imperfect action. Remember that fear is belief in something that hasn’t happen yet. So is Faith. Think about that… Stop being scared about what could go wrong and get excited about what could go right. This is how you break the chains of fear for good. I can recall my first opportunity to speak in front of the continued on next page

Congregation. I was nervous. My hands were a little sweaty. My stomach had butterflies. I had fear of forgetting my talk topics and just plain bombing the whole thing. In fact I actually made a “mistake” and forgot to mark a place in a book that I wanted to read from. When I got to that point in the talk I grabbed the book and realized I didn’t know what page to flip to. “Oh no what do I do now!!” I said to myself… I stumbled for a second, flipped frantically through the pages as the congregation sat quietly staring at me for what seemed like an eternity. Then something clicked inside of me and I decided I’m not going to find this page so I better keep it moving. I regrouped moved on and just paraphrased what the passage said. Even with that “mistake” the talk went over well and the Congregation loved it. I learned from that experience how to recover and speak extemporaneously when needed. I decided to take imperfect action and not let that fear paralyze me in the moment. Now I’m speaking with much more confidence and conviction and I always remember to mark my places in a book if I plan on reading from one. Taking action is the bottom line of this whole Sequence of Change. Here is something to help you remember how and why you should take imperfect action towards changing what you want to change in your life.


- Take Imperfect Action - Remember that nothing is ever perfect so stop trying to be. Do the best you can, with what you have from where you are. And then put it out there for the world to see. And yes, you are perfect in the eyes of God just the way you are…


- Control what you can control - You can’t control what happens but you can control how you react to it. For instance; don’t complain about the weather. You have no control over it. Mother Nature is going to do what she’s going to do. If it’s raining stay inside and read a book (or go play in the rain if that floats your boat). If it’s sunny go outside and enjoy it. Either way just enjoy it and realize you have no say so in this. You can only control your reaction to it. 18 august 2016 • Tampa Bay Wellness

T - Use the tools that are given to you

- . Use the internet for answers. We carry around a computer in our hands every day that we call a phone but we spend way more time using it as a computer than we do as a phone. Read books from the authors that represent what success means to you. Books are an enormous tool that many people don’t use. There’s an old saying “When you see a million dollar home it always has a library. The question is did they buy the house because it has a library, or did their library enable them to buy the house?” How big is your library at your house? How often do you read books?

I - Invest in yourself - Take the classes,

sign up for the courses. Take the seminars, read the books, buy the cds. It’s all worth it! Joi Ito once said “Education is what people do to you; learning is what you do to yourself.” Make a commitment to lifelong learning. Self Development. I can’t tell you how valuable Toastmasters has been for me since I joined. I have grown so much as a speaker in the past 2 years and I can attribute most of that to what I’ve learned in my local Toastmaster’s club. All for only $6 per month. Now that’s a bargain. Invest in yourself.

O - Be open to Opportunities - Seek

out opportunities every chance you get. Remember we are Teleological so we move towards what we think about. Continue to hold those opportunities that you desire in your mind and soon you will see them. The cool thing about this is once you are vibrating at the right frequency you start to see more and more opportunities all the time. It isn’t that they just started showing up. They’ve been there all along you just now started to notice them.

about it NOW. No matter what you are doing you are always doing it NOW. So take action, take massive action NOW to move to a better life. You got this!! Congratulations!! Now that you’ve mastered Changing your Beliefs, Changing your Thoughts and Taking A.C.T.I.O.N. you are officially prepared to Change Your Life. These are the keys to the Sequence of Change. Change your Beliefs, Change your Thoughts, Change your Actions and then you will Change your Life. As with any new skill you must practice it daily. One of my favorite speakers Dellatorro McNeal II says “Repetition is the Mother of skill. Rehearsal is the Father of learning.” In order to master the Sequence of Change you must continue to practice these skills at all times. That shouldn’t be much of a problem though because we all have something in our lives that we want to change. My friend, I hope that this has been a blessing to you. Thank you for reading and please drop me a note and let me know how what I’ve shared with you today has changed your life. This is TY signing off. Remember that the time is always NOW.

have always found that it is a very hard thing for people to forgive; I feel that when we forgive someone, it is freeing ourselves up in getting all those negative feelings out of our system. It makes us healthier, on so many levels, emotionally, spiritually and physically. It allows us to feel better. Personally, I feel so much better when I have forgiven someone, I bring myself to a place of peace. I very much believe in karma, The Law of Cause and Effect or in other words what goes around comes around, with that being said, if I want to be forgiven for any wrong doings that I have done, I must also forgive. I often find that, my family, friends and clients, have a difficult time with forgiving. And let’s not forget the word that goes along with it, forgetting. I think it’s hard to forgive and forget when wronged in one way or another. Saying “I’m sorry”, two small words that could mean the world of difference to someone that is hoping for an apology from you. I personally don’t have an issue with admitting when I’m wrong and more often say I’m sorry even when I’m not the person that did the But as I’ve grown older, ha, I dare say… I have learned that forgiveness, well it is a process. Being, aware that it is a process, makes it easier for me to forgive people and if they have genuinely wronged me, then I move on. It does make ones heart, mind and Spirit feel a sense

of freedom and happiness when this process is completed. We learn that it not only makes us feel better within ourselves but with others that we come across in our journey called life. For me there have been some I just had to say goodbye to and never look back, and some I have been fortunate enough to have forgiven, mended fences and resumed happy and healthy relationships. Forgiving and forgetting, I know they are supposed to go hand in hand, but I still haven’t mastered that one yet. I think that’s just part of our DNA; those imprints of whatever it was that caused the hurt in the first place. Time is a great healer. Don’t forget that!!! So try and forgive and know that time will heal the hurts you may be feeling today, and even the incident may be forgotten. Love and Blessings, Joanne

R.e.s.p.e.c.t By Michelle M. Caporale


he ability to respect oneself and others is an essential part of healthy emotional development. Most people in our society do not understand that respect of self is not only imperative but is used as a guideline or a path to how we create our everyday life. When you are respecting yourself you are drawing boundaries. You are caring enough about you that others will notice and very often give you the same. Let’s dive a little deeper on this subject of respect. I was raised in a very small town in northern New Jersey. I grew up with my Parents, grandparents, great grandmother and my Uncle. That was just our household. Being respectful of my Family and authority was not even a discussion it just “was”. It all began from the time I was born. Every once and a while I’d mouth off. I’d always get the speech; “you better watch your tone young lady, you are not to be disrespectful to anyone, nor will you behave that way”. I looked up to those around me. My interactions with others helped form my personality as to being a respectful child therefore a respectful adult. I knew my limits, I knew the difference between right and wrong. I understood that being rude or disrespectful was not acceptable behavior. Consequences would come swiftly if I misbehaved. My family was strict but loving. When children are raised in such environments with love, encouragement, kindness and consequences they customarily tend to grow up being better people. As an adult they are more likely to celebrate and appreciate life as having a sense of self value, self worth, love and self respect. If they have children of there own they will more then likely instill those same core values and beliefs. Developing the capacity for respect is a lifelong challenge. Our sense of self tends to be fragile. It can be an up and down ride with varying degrees of success. The development of selfrespect, or, in essence, self-esteem, is guided by how we see ourselves. Those in our lives act as a mirror in this process. The people who are important to us those we love and look up to give us attention and encouragement, we see a positive figure when we look in the mirror. The opposite would hold true if we are surrounded by condescending negative influences in our lives. We may look in the mirror feeling negative. These days It’s virtually impossible to not see or hear what is going on around us. The lack of respect for our family, friends, co-workers, animals and yes, authority figures. Our society is out of touch with what respect really means. There are several components of respect and how it affects our world and each of us in a positive or negative way. Here are some:

20 august 2016 • Tampa Bay Wellness


Empathy, consideration, caring and thoughtfulness toward one another could help create a culture where people would feel they belong, one where enjoyment and respect can thrive. Everyone would be more understanding and supportive when we experience problems. Our differences may not be so different. They really aren’t. Generally speaking we all want the same things. You can always use the work force as an impressive example. Most people do not feel valued, appreciated or respected at their jobs. Imagine if each supervisor and employee had to take courses in self- respect and empathy? It would be interesting to see the results.


The key to any successful relationship is trust. Hard to earn, once broken, nearly impossible to regain. However with trust comes respect. People that have trust and respect for another have a far better relationship as well as the simple fact that each party wants to do more and help the other. It flows better, feels good and creates stability.

What You Can Do

Set the tone. Be the change you wish to see in this world. Let others see how you show respect for all people, including the elderly, authority figures such as police officers, and people who are different from you in terms of ethnicity or religion. Strive to live what you teach. Be patient, consistent, caring, honest, and attentive. If someone is truly struggling, give them opportunities to be successful. Be encouraging! Use positive comments and behave in such a way that others want to learn from you, admire you and listen to you. When you lead by example it is then that you become the image of admiration which in turn makes it very easy for others to respect. People have said charity begins at home. So does respect.

What Does it Really Mean to

“Lead From a Place Of Strength”? By Dina Hansen, NHD I’ve often heard people talk about “leading from a place of strength”. And I love that. Unfortunately though, too many people hear this and misunderstand what this means. Maybe you’ve experienced this in your own life with a boss that says that it’s “their way or the highway”, afraid to take advice from “underlings” because they think it makes them look “weak”. Maybe you’ve come across this as a child with parents who run their family with strict rules, never allowing mistakes, unique ideas or “imperfection”. And possibly, just possibly, you’ve heard this come from various politicians over the years. When we lead others in this way it comes from a place of FEAR. And when we do that, no one wins. No one is really motivated and no one feels safe. The most effective leaders I have ever witnessed come from a place of LOVE. When speakers talk about “leading from a place of strength” it means, at least from my perspective, that we are coming from a place of great understanding, compassion and love of and for one another. It means that we are giving each other a hand up, instead of a knocking each other down in negative competition. We understand that we are all part of the human race and each and every one of us desires and deserves love, safety and belonging. And to do this, we begin by being courageous and strong with ourselves first. So instead of just focusing on our where we are lacking, or our “faults”, we embrace all the parts of ourselves that are unique and spectacular, but have been too shy to let shine through. We choose to speak to ourselves compassionately • To Advertise Call 813-501-4894

instead of neglectfully. Which means that we share words of love and support with ourselves, instead of always putting ourselves down. We understand that WE choose our life experiences simply by how we decide to interpret them and by how we respond to each event, instead of react to it. We slow down and breathe in the beauty of connecting with another living being. Learning from each other and cultivating relationships centered around trust, instead of fear. We acknowledge and appreciate the magnificent and magical world around us and within us. Understanding that we are truly all connected inside and out. Because the relationship we have with ourselves, will show itself in the relationship we have with others. And once we are able to show ourselves the truth, and embrace that we really are loved, are safe in our own existence and belong, we are better able to genuinely lead from a place of strength. Great leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Gandhi, The 14th Dali Lama, Malala Yousafzai and Mother Theresa have all inspired, lead and motivated masses of people by coming from a place of LOVE. Isn’t it time we lead our lives the same way? Imagine what would transform in the world if each and every one of us did this in our own microcosms of existence. Like each drop in a bucket will eventually make it over flow, we to can have this type of impact in the world. So I ask you now, the next time you lead, and come from a place of strength, remember to come from a place of LOVE and move mountains.

Sensory Deprivation

By Keith Matter

FLOATING Sensory deprivation tanks I recently was invited to Sacred Floats and Gems in Tampa to experience first hand what it is like to float in a sensory deprivation tank. The tank holds 150 gallons of water that has 1,000 pounds of Epson (magnesium) salt dissolved in it. There are no lights, there is no sound, and you do float completely, including your head.


ur senses make us feel alive, full of life and drive our emotions. How is it then that limiting sensory input can shed light on a part of us? We are bombarded daily with stimuli that demands attention. From babies crying to red lights, green lights, sounds, sights, touch, smell, etc. It’s a virtual deluge of data that gets processed constantly. And the amount of data we experience has increased dramatically since the days of our ancestors. Meditation’s goal is to slow down the input and learn to acknowledge thoughts and manage, categorize, accept and look past the data racing through our mind. By reducing stimuli we are able to look deeper into ourselves. We are able to focus and open the door to our core, and to experience Universal energies that get painted over with the daily data deluge. 22 august 2016 • Tampa Bay Wellness

Never having done this before there was a couple of thoughts and concerns. One, will I get claustrophobic? Two, is it clean? Three, will it help me in any way? First off, Sacred Floats and Gems is a wonderful place designed to help introduce and engage you to the process that is about to take place. The staff is super-friendly and informative.

had filled me in on other “Floaters” experiences. Keith showed me around and introduced me to my tank. There is a spacious private changing area with a shower a short walk away from the tank. After stripping down and showering off I made my way to the tank. After entering and closing the door I had a bit of trepidation. I thought to myself, how am I going to stay in here for an hour and a half. Putting those thoughts aside I allowed myself to lay back, remembering experiences of meditation in my life, and relax. The first 20-30 minutes were a process of thoughts. Am I really floating? Is there any light or sound? What am I supposed to do!? I settled in and began the process of looking within. It is kind of forced upon you, unlike meditation where you have to take yourself there. But it very much becomes a meditation. I found myself slowing down my thoughts, letting them go one by one. I entered a state of tranquility where “things” didn’t matter. There were a few instances where I was not there. I was not asleep. Not dreaming. Maybe caught in an extended thought. Maybe not having any thoughts at all. There were a number of times where I came back to, “Is there any light or sound in here?” “How much salt does it take to float?” I’m sure that most who “float” on a regular basis are far past these kinds of thoughts and are able to disappear into themselves with ease. When Keith knocked on the tank to let me know my time was

up I found myself thinking, “That was not an hour and a half.” Time had disappeared. While the word deprive is fraught with negative connotations, in this instance to deprive is to shield with a protective barrier around your true inner self and to allow insights and connections that the everyday world make difficult to experience. For those who meditate, for those who are learning to meditate and for those who seek truth, tanks are a wonderful means for facilitating a transition from everyday reality to a reality of your true inner self, as a connection to, and one with, the Universe. I would recommend sensory deprivation tanks for anyone interested in “getting away”, or “getting in touch”!

April 20th – May 20th

May 21st– June 20th

Surrender…to sleep and know that the purpose of being a Taurus is to give yourself plenty of time to refresh and revitalize your senses. Take some time over the coming month and venture into some new areas within nature to partake of its beauty. It will uplift your whole spirit.

Surrender…communion with the cosmos, knowing the cosmos can heal you immediately. It is what you carry in your heart that matters. Supplement that with guiding your thoughts and viewing the world through a veil of innocence… it serves humanity much more than judgements.

CANCER June 21st – July 22nd

Surrender…to your body wisdom and support it to intuitively guide you through challenge and strife. Your body becomes alarmed when you expose it to unhealthy situations. It will send you messages, whispers and signals to shift your behavior, or dial in a new attitude. It deserves an attentive ear.




Aug. 23rd – Sept. 22nd

Sept. 23rd – Oct. 22nd

Oct. 23rd – Nov. 21st

Surrender…denial as you focus on accepting all situations as they are. If you can directly affect a change in some area then do it. Take some time for reflection and just take the next right step. Yes, things seem to get difficult a lot lately. But that is because most of us have now entered a road less traveled…massive social changes.

Surrender…to Inner Peace-At the moment, in your life may feel that it is going very well. Remaining situations can be viewed with a certain detachment. Turn your energies now to creating a few new goals. Let life show you how happy you can be!

Surrender..to the healing of nature and schedule time outs to restore your battery and cleanse your perception. It is time to plan a visit to a spa or to go clamping in a place that can both purify and refresh. It will restore you.





Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st

Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th

Surrender receiving support with love and simultaneously you will radiate what you receive to others. Love of humanity must take precedence over social values for systems will change but love is consistent. Do not deny another the right of membership as a human for to do so blocks both lights you may carry.

Surrender…to your full inner strength and know you do not have to control any situation in order to receive its blessings. It is time to step in and raise your gaze to a greater vision, for you are undermining some of your potentials. Be here now and KNOW you are here.

Surrender…any need to be right and be mindful of any tendency to project or feel alienated. Yes, the world appears to be heading towards hell in a basket but the deeper truth is that you have always known repressive systems must breakdown in order to be rebuilt. Be of good cheer as you do your part.

Surrender fears of the future…This is your big challenge to deepen your trust and lift more of your veils. Sometimes even the smallest change has big effects, the greatest achievements can spring from the smallest seeds. Grow your garden Pisces and keep your eye on the sparrow…for it is flying.

Essentrics and the Aging Backwards Program Feeling Younger Every Day

By Arielle Giordano

The Essentrics/ Aging Backwards program reverses atrophied muscles by stretching, lengthening and strengthening 650 muscles. Here are some transformational myths and facts on the aging process:


id you know that everyday no matter what our current health status, you have a clear choice: you can grow older or you can grow younger? The truth is that yes, we all grow older every day. And, you absolutely have a choice in the age of your bones, muscles, internal organs and your skin. You decide if you want to spend your days feeling vital, energetic, and healthy and joyfully use your body to exercise, dance travel and play in your life. Or, you can be confined to joint and back pain, limited mobility, and a lack of physical strength that keeps you sitting and watching others do what you wish you could do, regardless of your age. Did you know that after age 35 muscle cells begin a slow process of dying unless we exercise? This causes a negative chain reaction starting with energy loss, less activity, more cell loss, and more muscle loss. Suddenly before our very eyes we develop the attributes of an “old” person! We find ourselves not being able to do the things we used to so easily. You may ask yourself, “how does this happen?” Every cell requires a source of energy to fuel and power its life. This energy is called mitochondria. Most cells have only a small number of mitochondria. Muscle cells have so many, in the tens of thousands that scientists have not been able to count them all! The reason muscle cells are the key to longevity and keeping us young is because they contain 95 per cent of the body’s mitochondria. The myth that we no longer have control over our own aging process is debunked! New research scientists have discovered that mitochondria power the cells and play a huge role in the rate of aging and the length of life. Mitochondria keep us youngwhen we protect and nurture them! Guess how we can protect and nurture them? Yes, that is right, movement! Movement activates the mitochondria and a sedentary life deactivates them! With every

move we make, we increase the quantity of mitochondria and this gives us more energy to burn. Essentrics strengthens the muscles by stretching and lengthening them. The joints are also stretched to promote synovial fluid to heal stiff joints. The list of Essentrics benefits include: less pain, increased energy, improved circulation and cardiovascular health, better focus, more flexibility, limber and mobile, and maintain a healthy and toned physique. If you are feeling tired or have been sitting for a long time, get up and start moving your mitochondria power cells for more energy and longevity! Our bodies want to move and are meant to move and have strong, energy –producing, fat-burning muscles!

Arielle Giordano has a Masters in Arts and Masters in Education. She is a certified Essentrics Instructor trained with Miranda Esmonde- White in the Essentrics, (also known as Classical Stretch) Aging Backwards program. Arielle offers Essentrics/Aging Backwards private sessions and classes. She also offers dance lessons and workshops.
