How to Make Your New Years Resolutions Stick!

H

By Bobbi Rise

ave you been thinking about making a change in your life? And I’m guessing maybe you’ve already made and broken your New Year’s Resolutions. It would make sense that by now you would be wondering why your goals have already been sabotaged…by you! The most common excuse is that old habits and addictions die hard, but it’s really not only about will power. Psychologists have researched the various reasons people can’t seem to make their changes last, and they can’t find the one answer. In fact, the meta data simply proves there are as many reasons as there are people out there. So, you’re not alone here trying to make positive changes and wondering what went wrong. Truth be known, deeply set into your subconscious is your own, unique belief system which interprets all that happens in

your world as you perceive it. That perceptual window then creates your negative emotional interpretations as a result. Then these negative emotions end up causing your responding behaviors, and they, in turn, are responsible for your repeated unwanted issues. Basically, your underlying thoughts have become the deeply buried root cause of your very own self-destructive behaviors – and without you even being aware of it! As a hypnotherapist, I have helped many clients relax into a focused mindset to help get in touch with these negative thoughts. With some focused time through a team effort, these thoughts and conflicts are discovered and reframed so that negative beliefs are then seen as outdated and no longer serving them. Then, positive beliefs replace them to rule the day. Once that shift occurs, lasting change is made so much easier to accomplish. Basically, our “whys” (reasons to change) must be bigger and more powerful than our “why nots” (excuses, rationalizations, etc.) To make the “whys” more powerful, we need to shift our core beliefs, thoughts, and emotions with Hypnotherapy. Our subconscious then becomes the muscle or powerhouse to back up the changes we want to make. And keep in mind, when working on your resolutions, the hypnotherapist does not have “control or power over” a client, but rather works to help the client focus on, and communicate with, his or her own thoughts. The client is conscious the entire time, and is able to remember all that happened during their session. In fact, clients actually feel rested and refreshed when they come out of the hypnotic state, with a transformed perspective from when they came in. It’s also important to know that clinical hypnotherapy is not meant to replace your doctors for any medical or psychological issues. This is an effort to help you find what’s not working in your life, and create the life you’d love to live! So, in conclusion, it is important to make resolutions, but just as important to make a plan to reframe the blocks stored in the subconscious and to support and align with the changes we want to see. Resolutions + Action Plan = Results. The Zen Zone Experience, 3964 Tampa Road, in Oldsmar, FL, has several unique modalities that go deep into the subconscious and can help with your action plan, such as Hypnotherapy with Bobbi Rise, Theta Healing with Terri Cabral and Scio Bio feedback with Ann Beck and Andrea Wurthner. Bobbi’s background includes working as an educator with a BS Ed, as a school counselor with an MS Ed., and with certifications as a substance abuse counselor, a Reiki Master, and a Life Purpose & Career Life Coach. She is also the author of Behind the Counselor’s Door, and a facilitator of A Course in Miracles Discussion Group at The Zen Zone Experience on Saturday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30. Her 500-hour training as a Clinical, Transpersonal, and Interpersonal Hypnotherapist was at the state-licensed Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy (nationally expanded now as the Interpersonal Institute of Hypnotherapy.)

Dancing is like dreaming with your feet: Dancing with your dreams in 2018!

L

ooking back on 2017, what do you know and see? What was most significant about last year? What insights did you gain from your success and/or failure? What did you accomplish and achieve? Are you willing to set yourself free from 2017? Are you are ready for a new beginning? The less you hold on to from the past the more you will spring forward! Closing out the past year is a review to reflect and release 2017 and have maximum energy in 2018! Dance outside the lines means stepping out of your box of boundaries and getting out of your way! As a child, were you taught to paint the sky blue, the grass green and trees with leaves? While painting or coloring did you follow directions, stay inside the lines, and avoid coloring outside the lines? Imagine stepping into the beyond and into a new you!

TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD

Relax, and Be Open and Soft In Your Heart!

Relax and be in your body. Be quiet and gentled in your heart. Connect with the deeper you. Be aware of the sensory experiences of where you are, what you are listening to, seeing, feeling, tasting, and smelling. Be okay with any thoughts, feelings and physical sensations. Breathe deeply. Release pent up energy, tightness, & stress in your body, mind, heart and soul. Like being open and soften in your heart. Be love.

Renewal happens in an openness and willingness of heart.

PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA: January 5 Marks The 125th BIRTH ANNIVERSARY OF FATHER OF YOGA IN THE WEST

J

anuary 5, 2018 marks the 125th birth anniversary of one of the pioneering fathers of Yoga in the West, Paramahansa Yogananda, author of the modern spiritual classic AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI, and subject of the highly acclaimed documentary AWAKE: The Life of Yogananda (2014). Widely recognized as one of the preeminent spiritual figures of our time, Sri Yogananda made an indelible impression on the spiritual landscape of the United States and the world, contributing to a far greater awareness and appreciation of India’s Vedic philosophy through his public lectures, writings and the nonprofit spiritual organization he founded, Self-Realization Fellowship/ Yogoda Satsanga Society of India (SRF/YSS), which includes 800 temples, meditation centers, and retreats around the world. Sri Yogananda’s best-selling spiritual classic, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A YOGI, has introduced millions of readers to the philosophy and practice of yoga meditation, and has been translated into nearly 50 languages. It remains one of the most important, and most readable, works on yoga and Eastern spiritual thought. At the heart of Sri Yogananda’s teachings is the sacred science of Kriya Yoga, a form of Raja Yoga, which serves to quiet both body and mind, making it possible to withdraw one’s energy and attention from the usual turbulence of thoughts, emotions, and sensory perceptions. In the clarity of that inner stillness, one comes to experience a deepening interior peace and attunement with one’s true self. On March 2 at 8 p.m., a long-time monk of the SRF order, Brother Nakulananda, will present a public lecture in Tampa Bay based on the teachings of Sri Yogananda entitled “Finding Inner Peace Through Meditation,” offering insights and practical advice on how yoga meditation works in one’s life. “Through the scientific techniques of yoga meditation,” Brother Nakulananda says, “we are able to tap into real happiness, a state of bliss that expands the more we go within.” The public event, which includes a guided meditation and reception, will take place at The Holiday Inn Tampa Westshore-Airport. Admission is free and open to all. For more information, please visit http://www.srftampabay.org/index. html, call (813) 732-4638 or email srftampa@gmail.com.

ir pollution distorts sperm, makes it harder to get pregnant, and can lead to premature births and low birth weights -- yet another reason why cars and humans don’t mix well. Air pollution has become the world’s single largest environmental health risk, and scientists say it causes more than 3.7 million premature deaths per year (data from 2012). But what does air pollution do to unborn children? Or even to those parents who are trying to get pregnant? New research

shows it’s having a seriously detrimental effect. Problems start with a man’s sperm. In a study titled, “Exposure to ambient fine particulate matter and semen quality in Taiwan,” researchers from the Chinese University of Hong Kong examined 6,475 men between the ages of 14 and 49 and found that the more air pollution a man is exposed to, the greater his risk of having irregularly shaped and smaller sperm. Most of the participants did not smoke and had less than one alcoholic drink per week. From Newsweek’s report on the study: “Air pollution was also associated with a 26-percent increase in the risk of being in the bottom 10 percent of average sperm size and shape.” Why? Because air pollution contains particulate matter (PM) that consists of heavy metals (such as cadmium, known to be carcinogenic) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that have had toxic effects on semen quality in animal experiments. The study says, “Chronic, low-dose exposure [to PM] may contribute to significant spermatogenesis impairment.” This makes it hard for a couple to get pregnant. With 48.5 million couples affected by infertility worldwide, the researchers “advocate global strategies on mitigation of air pollution to improve reproductive health.”

THEME - Physical Reality

What is Physical Reality? Seems Obvious, Right?

Y

ou know how you usually spend more money for the holidays than perhaps you had planned? Or how you might not finish a project due to interruptions or distractions from email, social media, or other “interruptions” unrelated to the project or task at hand? This usually occurs when our conscious mind is “absent” from physical reality, and is allowing our unconscious mind to engage autopilot - convincing us that the distraction is a good use of our energy (time, money, creativity, etc.) Fact is, the distraction prevents us from being “present” in “physical reality”. Physical reality is where the “present moment” lives. Our minds can dream, imagine, plan, and create just about anything, simply by “thinking”. However, our “thinking” can go on indefinitely- there is no limit to how much time we spend mulling it over, exhausting ourselves while accomplishing nothing tangible! While this mental magic of “thinking, dreaming, imagination” is our source of creativity, the “limitless quality” can prevent us from “realizing” our dreams if it continues unchecked. If we truly, authentically want the dream to materialize, we must “take action” in physical reality, where there is a limited amount of time, space, money, energy, creativity and so on. Physical reality is where dreams come to life, where success happens because we 12

remain focused on the result we intend to achieve, and take the steps necessary to make it “real”. A few examples of when “thinking, dreaming, imagining” requires ‘taking action’ in physical reality: Planning Retirement- While we often plan our finances for retirement, we seldom plan our “life” - how we wish to spend our time, where we plan to live, how we intend to take care of loved ones, and what other accomplishments do we wish to achieve? Career Transitions- We continue to work in situations that do not align with our values, or do not allow our creativity or expertise to be expressed, or the pay and benefits do not support the life style we wish to achieve. We hear our heart asking for a change but we keep “thinking” about a change but do not take action in physical reality to successfully make a move. New Year’s Resolutions - In late weeks of December or early weeks of January we will “think” about our resolutions for the coming year. If we do not write them down, place them in view, and plan action steps for getting them done, we may be writing the same ones again next year.

Thoughts on physical reality from Henry Ford “Vision without execution is just hallucination” JANUARY 2018

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you always got”. The lesson here is to notice the difference between our metaphysical (limitless) selves, and our present-moment physical reality selves, where taking action towards what we want in this life, gives opportunity for the dream to be born, and success to be experienced. As you move into 2018, what are you wishing or dreaming about? Get clear on what that is, focus your time, money and creativity on it, and take the steps required to get it done - Life is Short, Live it Well you are the only one who can decide to live consciously, experiencing the rewards of physical reality in full color. Wishing you all a year of creativity, joyful living, and success!! Coach Dianne

ccording to Statistics Brain research 58 percent of Americans are likely to make a New Year’s resolution. The top five most frequent resolutions are: 1) Lose weight/healthier Eating, 21.4%; 2) Make life/self-Improvements, 12.3%; 3) Make better financial decisions, 8.5%; 4) quit smoking, 7.1%; and, 5) do more exciting things, 6.3%. Of those millions of Americans who make resolutions, a whopping 91 percent will have infrequent success or completely fail at their resolutions. But resolutions are merely goals, and we all should have goals. The reason New Year’s resolutions are typically failures is because people set unrealistic goals for themselves. What is holding you back from reaching your goals? Whatever your goal is, the first thing to recognize is what mental blocks are preventing you from achieving your accomplishments. People who have good emotional health are aware of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They

have learned healthy ways to cope with stress and problems. So many things can disrupt your emotional health and this can lead to strong feelings of sadness and anxiety. Get your mind healthy first and that will help you become physically healthy too. So here are five ways to become emotionally and physically healthy by setting realistic goals every day:

1. Reduce stress.

Your body responds to how you feel, think and act. This is an important mind body connection because when you’re feeling stressed your body reacts in such a way that it may be telling you something is not right. A great way to reduce stress is through meditation. Any time you feel your mind is stressed or your body is tensing up, just take a few minutes to take some slow deep breaths and imagine the most beautiful place you have ever been to or imagined. When it comes to stress or anxiety, two things to remember are distract and replace. You distract with the

JANUARY 2018

deep breathing and you replace the negative thought with a new positive thought. Also, notice any tension in your body while you’re doing this and progressively relax the tensed muscles starting from your head all the way down to your toes.

2. Let go of grudges.

There’s a great saying that reads “Holding a grudge against someone is like feeding yourself poison and waiting for the other person to die.” There is nothing more emotionally damaging than holding on to anger. Start expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. You will notice that your health will improve and you will feel more motivated to do things for yourself because you will feel happier. If talking to someone is not an option, a great way to let your feelings out is to write them down in a journal. By putting your thoughts and feelings down on paper, you can visualize them not being part of you anymore.

3. Show gratitude.

It’s so easy to focus on the things that are not going well in your life because

Tampa Bay Wellness


the thought of those parts of your life are so strong. Instead, try focusing on what is going right. I always suggest to my clients to wake up with a positive affirmation and go to bed with a positive statement. Focusing on the negative will affect your physical health and also lower your self-esteem. In order to be in the best physical health, you must have a positive outlook on life. Create a vision board. Cut out pictures from a magazine or write down words that will inspire you. Having that daily reminder that there are great things in your life and so many great things to come, will motivate to start working on your goals.

4. Mindful eating and exercise.

Nothing is more defeating than telling yourself “I need to go on a diet,” or, “I have to lose 20 pounds.” Give taking care of your body a new meaning. Look at it in a new perspective. A great way to do this is to not focus on how much you have to lose but picture your body as being a very precious machine that you need to take care of. Everything you put in it, and every move you make will either keep the

machine running or run it down. When you sit down to eat, focus on what you will be eating and how it’s going to affect your body, good or bad. When you exercise, focus on the muscles flexing or your heart beating and how this is making you stronger and healthier. You only have one body and mind so treat it with great value.

5. Go home before you get home.

With the ever-present mobile phone in our hands, far too many of us physically leave the office, only to find ourselves on the phone doing work-related, or other business that ten years ago would have waited until later with no negative consequences. So instead of being on the phone while commuting home from work, use that time to relax, think to yourself, or listen to some music you enjoy. And if you must be on the phone, don’t make work calls, pick up the phone and speak to someone who is going to calm your mind or put a smile on your face. When you get home, your mind won’t still be at work, and you’ll be far more relaxed. The most important thing to remember

when making any personal improvements like these is to remember to set small goals. Work toward making them a success, but don’t beat yourself up if you have a slice of cake, don’t exercise for a few days, or have to take a call from your boss while on the way home. Tomorrow is another day. Just make sure you set new realistic goals again tomorrow. Happy New Year!

When Quitting Is Winning Q

uitting tobacco is hard, but it’s never too late to quit and begin reaping the health benefits of a tobacco-free lifestyle. Whether you use cigarettes, cigars, snuff, chew or e-cigarettes, all forms of tobacco are harmful and can be addictive. Tobacco products contain several chemicals, as well as a substance called nicotine that stimulates your nerves, increasing your blood pressure, respiration and heart rate.

Risky Business

Understanding how tobacco affects your body is the first step toward quitting. Using tobacco can shorten your life expectancy by at least 10 years. When you smoke, tobacco’s harmful chemicals can damage your body, putting you at higher risk for health and bodily impact, such as: * Lungs: Respiratory infections and colds * Skin: Skin discoloration, wrinkles and premature aging * Nails: Yellow fingernails * Heart: Heartbeat irregularities * Mouth: Gum inflammation, gingivitis, infections and oral or throat cancers * Teeth: Brown-stained teeth, tooth decay, tooth loss and chronic bad breath * Reproductive System: Cervical cancer, pregnancy complications and infertility

Tobacco not only risks your health, but also affects your looks and social life. Because tobacco restricts blood flow in the body, smoking can cause erectile dysfunction or the inability to achieve orgasm. Other negative side effects include tobacco smoke, which sticks to your hair, vehicle, clothing and furniture. The residue and smell linger long after you finish smoking. Conversely, quitting tobacco use has nearly immediate positive results. In an otherwise healthy person, after 72 smoke-free hours, your lungs begin to repair. Between two weeks and three months after your last cigarette, blood flow and circulation improve and lung function increases by about 30 percent, so you’ll get winded less easily and feel less tired. One year later, your risk of heart disease will be cut in half, and 10 years after quitting, the risk of lung cancer is about half that of a person who smokes.

Getting Help

Although there are cases of people who successfully quit cold turkey, statistics show this is not the most reliable approach to quitting. Fortunately, there are several options to help you kick the habit, manage your withdrawal symptoms and take back your health. Medication, counseling and support groups can all aid you on your journey of quitting tobacco while saving you money and lengthening your lifespan.

Patches and Medications

Tobacco cessation medication can double your chances of kicking the habit permanently. Talk to your health care professional to discuss the best treatment plan for you. Types of medication include: * Nicotine replacement therapies * Nicotine gums or lozenges * Nicotine patches, inhalers or nasal sprays * Quit-smoking pills

If you want to take a non-medical route, a counselor or a quitting coach can give you advice and support while you are trying to quit. The more often you meet, the more likely your choice to quit will be a permanent one. Your quitting coach can help you set a start date, learn coping skills, know the common smoking triggers, gain social support and help you tobacco-proof your life. Other support options for quitting include national help numbers and online chat rooms. Free phone, chat room and texting resources from UCanQuit2 can be a useful supplement to personal counseling and coaching. Learn more at 1-800-QUIT-NOW or ucanquit2.org. In addition, you can find information about support programs in your state at map. naquitline.org.

ANYTIME PLUMBING OF CENTRAL FLORIDA, INC.

5 Facts About E-Cigs E-cigarettes are battery-operated devices often designed to look like regular tobacco cigarettes. Instead of tobacco, e-cigarettes are filled with liquid that contains nicotine and other chemicals. When that liquid is heated it turns into vapor that can be inhaled. 1. They are still addictive. While e-cigarettes don’t contain tobacco, the main ingredient is nicotine - one of the most addictive stimulants available. 2. They contain harmful chemicals. Medical researchers have identified at least 19 harmful chemicals in e-cigarettes, some of which can cause cancer. Studies show a teaspoon of highly diluted “e-liquid” is enough to kill an adult. 3. No regulation leaves plenty to chance. The Food and Drug Administration recently announced plans to regulate e-cigarettes using the same standards as tobacco products, but there’s no official timetable. This means that for now, nicotine levels and “e-liquid” ingredients vary widely from product to product and there is no proof that these ingredients are safe. 4. They aren’t a proven quitting tool. Although some smokers have found that e-cigarettes helped them stop or cut back tobacco use, e-cigarettes still deliver nicotine by inhaling from a cigarette-like device. Experts warn that this can lead to nicotine dependence and even initiate cigarette use in previous non-smokers. 5. Restrictions are widespread. In many public and private places, e-cigarettes have the same usage limitations as tobacco, meaning you likely can’t use them at hospitals, restaurants and many other indoor and outdoor locations that have restricted tobacco use on their premises.

New Year, new possibilities, the opportunity to begin again and experience life in a fresh way. As the New Year arrives, we clear out the old, set new goals and anticipate the excitement of a renewed spirit and guidance, like a kid in the candy store we too, expect a new sweet flavor along with some of the old favorites. Life honors us when we honor ourselves, that’s when it becomes a full circle. What we put out we get back and when we get centered and start from the heart instead of the head, the energy comes from love (heart magic) and from the heart we experience clarity and joy, the feeling that comes so easily to children. Children always experience more feeling than thought, therefore they truly bathe in their joy. As adults we often forget the feeling of joy, bogged down with responsibilities, we don’t remember the simple things in life that do not cost money. Instead we create lives of stress instead of joy and magic. Why not think of 2018 as your year of Magic? A year of joy, the opportunity for a higher frequency to enter your life. Simplify, destress and soothe your soul. Release all that is no longer for your highest and best 18

What is Your Physical Reality as We Step Forth into the New Year 2018?

W

e begin a new phase in evolution when the possibilities for more expanded consciousness and super consciousness can occur, allowing for the expansion to experience more unity, love, joy, peace, wholeness and abundance, the 5th Density. There will be no longer be just 3rd Density living, but 4th and 5th Densities as well, and with further evolution, more upward expansion will be possible. These are the New Earth realities that begin to manifest in 2018. Each person decides by their choices, thoughts, actions and consciousness level what will manifest in their physical reality. Ongoing and continuing rising Ascension energies to Earth assist in the awakening of humanity, and souls choosing to elevate into higher consciousness begin to notice new found realities of higher vibrational experiences. Be mindful of what you think, say and do. Be in your highest and live with heart-soul-spirit connection and it will take you into higher consciousness experiences. Release lower vibrational energies and limiting beliefs, and choose to go higher. All of your choices and manifestations determine your consciousness level and thus your physical reality experiences. Begin with conscious deep breathing. That begins to increase your consciousness because the mind follows the breath and the body follows the mind. Through greater conscious awareness, expanded choices, conscious choosing, raising vibration and raising consciousness in more aspects of living, you can find the pathways, people, work and relationships that are in vibrational alignment to your new-found truth. As this happens, you will come to experience the reality you desire, to fulfill your life purpose and to have more joy, peace, love and abundance.

BODY - Fitness MY FITNESS JOURNEY: GROWING TALLER, GROWING MUSCLES AND GROWING

CONFIDENCE!

By Nia Kaye

I

first started being interested in fitness when I saw a picture of myself at a family outing in summer 2009. I hated the shape of my face and decided something had to change. I had never eaten badly; my Mom is a fantastic cook who made plenty of healthy, balanced meals throughout my childhood (and still does now!) But when I moved to university, I replaced her home cooking with convenience meals, partying and eating mayonnaise covered cheesy fries at 3am! Over a summer in Florida, I started attending classes at the health club that my Mom was a member of and lost about 8lb as well as growing, yes, growing, an inch taller! My posture had improved so much from exercising that I became taller than my Mom. Check mark on the bucket list! In 2011, my boyfriend at the time persuaded me to join this new low-cost gym. I gave him my debit card details and told him to sign me up, as I am guilty of ‘bookmarking’ such things and leaving all my Internet browser tabs open (anyone else?!) and then never following through! We signed up for a Friday evening class, with a very enthusiastic trainer and we loved it! I became a bit of a regular at the classes from then on until a personal trainer took me into the weights room. I can’t pretend I enjoyed my first few experiences of using real weights as opposed to lurid colored dumbbells that look

22

like cat toys. Seeing my body change and becoming noticeably stronger was empowering and eventually I plucked up the courage to follow a training plan that involved me entering the weights room 4

Artisique Photography www.artisiquephotography.com Tampa Bay Wellness


BODY - Fitness to 5 times a week. Fast forward a year or so and any doubts about entering the weights room had deserted me. At the same time as I emigrated to Florida, I began preparing for a fitness photoshoot. I followed a very strict, low calorie meal plan and went to the gym twice a day for cardio and weights for six months. I dropped 25lbs in total. After the photoshoot, I felt incredibly lost and was almost in mourning. I lacked a purpose, any sense of direction and was unable to stifle my cravings for extravagant sweet meals. After a couple of months of really struggling, I decided to try something new. I had done a lot of reading on various social media platforms and longed to be utilizing a flexible dieting approach. I decided to calculate the calories, protein, carbohydrates and fats from the meal plan I was given and experiment. I gave myself two weeks. I told myself that if I put on weight then I would go back to ‘eating clean’. Two weeks went by and my weight was actually dropping. Flexible dieting is heavily glamorized online and perceptions seem to be that it is all about fitting in as much junk as possible and taking photos of it. Yes, I eat ‘junk’ in small quantities but most of the time, I don’t want to eat it. I enjoy eating the fresh, crunchy textures of fruits and vegetables and there are few things that give me as much pleasure as cooking up delicious meals for the week. I love experimenting with flavors and different ingredients and am always happy (although teased for it!) bringing my Tupperware pots into work. Why would I want to pay multi-billion dollar companies for mediocre (at best) food, when I can do it better, cheaper and healthier myself? Now, I can’t imagine not tracking macros. It works for me, both mentally and physically. It enables me to pursue two of my passions (cooking and eating….yes, eating is definitely a passion) and it has enabled me to progress. It is as much of a part of my life as getting dressed. With a much healthier relationship with food and my love of working out, stepping on stage seemed like the natural next step. I competed twice this year and I learned so much from this experience. Bodybuilding is often thought of as synonymous with vanity and self-obsession, but, in reality,

Temple of Love & Healing Psychic Fairs 1st Sat. in Jan., Apr., July & Oct. - 10:00 AM-3:00 PM All other months, 1st Fri. 5:30-9:00 PM

the lean physiques showcase a whole host of motivations. There is so much more to bodybuilding than aesthetics. Despite enjoying the experience, I found that being on stage in a glittery bikini just wasn’t really ‘me’. Looking forward to 2018, I have my first powerlifting competition. Powerlifting is a sport which embodies everything I aim to personify; strength, determination and passion. Needless to say, I am excited (although a little nervous…the manicure better stay in tact!)

Horoscopes

Astrology

JANUARY 2018

By Imsara ARIES March 21st – April 19th

Take more control of your moods and resentments. Tone down the fired up side of your nature and take stock of others people’s sensitivities and their strengths. Contemplate rather than charging through situations. Be bold, yet conscious. More light tempered with greater insight is your key to success.

LEO July 23 – August 22

Tune into what is happening around you. Sharpen your pencil and start taking names. Final decisions need to be made regarding immediate issues. Notice what makes you shine and what makes you bored as a stick. Focus on what your heart is telling you, not your head. Loyalty to the true self is your road to peace.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st

Focus on the side of you that is positive, generous, optimistic and humorous. Relish in your network of friends and fine places this month. Plan a trip or two that can boost your serotonin and give your eyes a=sparkle.

TAURUS

GEMINI

April 20th – May 20th

May 21st– June 20th

Soon you will be opening the door to more interesting people, unexpected opportunities and surprising developments. This begins to be more evident as you approach mid-year but after that all bets are off. Your life is going to change. Best idea is to embrace it.

There was a time when gods and goddesses were thought to be in charge of all affairs on earth but no more. Technology is the new boss in town and it is time to get up to speed. Sharpen your skills, apply your know-how and fill in the gaps in order to strengthen your base.

LIBRA

VIRGO

Sept. 23rd – Oct. 22nd

August 23 to September 22

Tone down the areas which tend to wear you down. Make a decision that the only thing that truly matters is you and make well-being your priority this year. Bring yourself into the present, fully and with conscious intent, realizing the only moment to celebrate is now. Chill.

A time for creative reflection draws near. Take stock of what pleases you and tickles your joy bones. Find ways to spend some money that can heighten your sense of delight in the world. Nourish your senses with natural elements. Contemplate ways you can strengthen connection to what matters to you. Forget the rest.

AQUARIUS

CAPRICORN

Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th

Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th

Remember that the best decisions this year focus on the letting go, not the holding on. You will feel a stronger and more internal sense of inner authority over the year. Ease up on everything, take frequent deep breaths and be careful not to kick sand in any faces.

Only fools rush in. Choose carefully any rules to be broken. Surprises can be a theme over the coming months and serve to wake you up more to ways you confine yourself. It can be in thought, word or deed. Most often, a perspective is the issue. Unlock it.

CANCER June 21st – July 22nd

Time to meet the moon on her own terms. This means sensing, slowing down and feeling where you may have some inner gaps to be healed as well as some wounds to be tended. The moon is your ruling sign and keeper of where your needs for fulfillment reside. Take some time to recall old memories and dreams forgotten. It is time to take stock and freshen up.

SCORPIO October 23 to November 21

You possess in great degree a driving force known as Pluto and Pluto is right now busy with a tear down and rebuild within the USA. It will behoove you over 2018 to dispose of situations quickly, to celebrate your successes, expand your freedoms and ask yourself a lot of questions about what you are doing exactly and why. You are in a new growth cycle. Yes!

PISCES Feb. 19th – March 20th

Pay attention to yourself-if you hear any sighs it is time to step out of the social and personal dramas that swirl around an ocean tide for there is no beginning nor end to them. Clarity will come via taking time to meditate, sleep and journal. Jupiter trines your sign now and no telling what can be revealed.

Green Living Letter From Sustainable Florida

What is

Kombucha?

Executive Director

By Josie Coppolino

L

ast week, I began my 12th year leading Sustainable Florida. With the support of an incredible Board of Directors, amazing corporate sponsorship and hundreds of Best Practice nominees, I have had one of the best jobs in the state. Over time, we have introduced sustainability - People, Planet and Profit - to more than 50 organizations in presentations, webinars, conferences, panel presentations, and workshops. We have enjoyed sharing how to do well by doing good. Today, sustainability has become an integral part of many organizations. Companies have Sustainability Directors and Managers. Corporate Social Responsibility Executives help lead the charge in their companies. County and city governments have sustainability departments. Universities and colleges not only have Sustainability Directors, but also offer a major in the field to their students. Sustainable Florida is evolving, too. Sustainable Florida is shifting its focus. Our Board of Directors has enjoyed forging a very strong network across disciplines. We have representatives from utilities, green building, hospitality, retail, automotive, waste management, food service, and more. It is clear that no matter the industry, sustainability professionals have a lot in common and can learn from each other. Sharing best practices in a fun, positive environment has helped create stronger sustainability systems for their organizations. We also have begun to take advantage of more social media channels including LinkedIn. If you have not already joined our Facebook page or followed us on Twitter, please do. We invite Florida’s sustainability professionals to become part of Florida’s strongest sustainability network. But, wait! There’s more! You’re asking what’s in it for me? Well, we are coming to you in person. With Board partner Valley Forge Fabrics, we were honored to welcome Repreve to Fort Lauderdale last month at a special event with south Florida sustainability leaders. And, on April 25th, we will be in Orlando for a special networking event to celebrate your Earth Day (Week/Month) efforts. Let us know if you’d like more information about how you can join us (and even have a chance to win tickets to Sea World and Aquatica!). Thank you for a fabulous decade. And, as always, thanks for helping to ensure a sustainable Florida! All the bestTim Center, Esq. Executive Director P.S. Be sure to join us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date on the latest sustainability news in Florida and beyond. www.tampabaywellness.com

ombucha; the word stirs reactions of either love or hate in the people who’ve tried it. If this is the first you’ve heard of Kombucha, you’ve probably at least seen it lining the refrigerated beverage section at your local Publix or health food store. But what is Kombucha? According to the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence, Kombucha is a fizzy, fermented tea with origins as early as 414 AD Japan, where the emperor himself consumed the drink to sooth his digestive track! While Kombucha is traditionally made with black tea, white sugar, and something called a SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast), recent surges in popularity have caused the creation of a Homemade, bottled kombucha. Source: arealfoodlover.wordpress.com variety of flavors and brands to pop up at many grocers. The Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence goes on to mention that while more research needs to be conducted on the health benefits of Kombucha, animal studies have shown probiotic and antioxidant benefits, immune support, mental wellness, and even antimicrobial properties, as well as many other unexpected positive health effects to consuming the tea. As with many health crazes, however, there are brands that have been criticized as being not as healthy, or even phony substitutes for Kombucha, for methods used to amp up production or lengthen shelf life: these methods include adding carbonated water (in lieu of natural carbonation offered by the live cultures within the tea), sweeteners used for taste following fermentation and before bottling, and even pasteurization, which prevents further culturing of or even reduces the live culture count claimed on a bottle’s label. A quick Google search will pull up dozens of passionately written articles about the best Kombucha brands for consumption. Kombucha can also be safely made at home, and there are many videos, guides, and resources on the web to do it yourself. Kombucha has a mildly acidic smell, not unlike vinegar, but is neutral and bubbly to the taste. While for some people Kombucha can be an acquired taste, to the seasoned health nut, it is a refreshing and rejuvenating super-food that can treat and prevent many ills. http://fsi.colostate.edu/kombucha/

FEATURE - 2018 Numbers

By Charles Zinner

2018 – Power, Wisdom and Light!

2

018 is an eleven year (2+0+1+8 = 11). Numerologically, this is an extraordinarily powerful number as it shows the energy of 1 going into another 1, enhancing that energy to the point it is seen as explosive. When there are double digits together this indicates disharmonious energies, or in short, two overpowering energies expressing in a conflicting manner. Last year was a 1 year (2017 = 2+0+1+7 = 10 = 1+0 = 1), and 2018 (11) will at least double last year’s energy. The number one (1) is characterized as energy which is dynamic, a 1 person is a pioneer, leader, projects starter – in short fiery, powerful and often can be egotistical. The number 11 is a master number and is never reduced to a single digit (11 is never 1+1 =2). 11 is high powered and it can bring in higher energies to begin or complete cycles. Remember 911 – this illustrates the properties of both the nine which is often referred to as endings (which can be easy or fiery), and the 11 which introduces forceful energies which bring in a new consciousness. 2018 is indicated in Numerology as a significant ramping up of the 1 energies into the 11. As the 1 person is known as a pioneer, the 11 is the teacher who will bring in new concepts- conceptualizations which have never been formulated, as well as higher spiritual truths. January is a 1 month and the beginning of a 11 calendar year, thus we will have 1-11 energies with us as we go through this month. In fact this upcoming month of January is rife with 1, 11, and includes the Master number 22 (the Master Creator).

Like 11, 22 is never reduced to a single digit either. Following are the January 2018 dates which have an expression of all 1s and 11s: Jan 1 (Jan =1, day =1, year = 2018 =1) 1-1-11, Jan 10 (10 = 1+0=1) thus 1-1-11; Jan 11 (1+11+11) Jan 28 (28 = 1+0) thus 1-1-11; Jan 19 (1=9=10= 1+0 =1) 11, thus gives 1+1+11 Jan 29 (29 =11) thus 1-11-11 Thus: the dates Jan 1, 10, 11, 19, 28, 29 consist of all 1s and 11s. Dates that add up to 1 in January 2018 Jan 7 2018 (1+7+11) = 8+11 =19 = 1+9 =10 = 1+0 =1 Jan 16 2018 (1 +16 + 11) = 17+11 = 28 = 2+8 = 10= 1+0 =1 Jan 25 2018 (1+[2+5=7]+11) = 8=11 = 19 = 1+9 = 10 = 1+0 = 1 Date involving the Master Builder master number22 Jan 22 gives us 1+22+11. Adding 1+22+11= 34 = 3+4 = 7. 7 is the mystic’s number in Numerology. The 7, 11 and 22 person often have a spiritual nervousness and heightened sense of intuition and spirituality. The above is only to illustrate the energies which could possibly influence us, and is intended to help us make better decisions. Hopefully it will illuminate what is going on as we move through this year. Thus during the month of January, there is almost 25% of the month ex-

pressing the potential of 1, 11 and 22 – all of which are concerned with higher than normal energies. Since 2018 is an 11 year, this portends change on the horizon. If you thought 2017 was turbulent, this upcoming year has the potential to far surpass it. What does this mean to the average person? Simply staying calm, centered and going within and working on internal personal development is the best start. Doing this coupled with continuing to expand one’s consciousness through the spiritual practices of one’s choice will lead to clarity and peace of mind. The energies as seen by this numerology merely indicate the 33 percent solution. What this means is free will and educated personal action are the keys to life challenges. We are just five years past the 2012 events during which we were aligned with the center of the galaxy. We have been bathed in tremendous cosmic energies and will continue to experience this for almost another two decades. One’s choices and actions to accomplish that which one wishes to do, is paramount. Our generation and those to come are waking up and advancing at a terrifyingly rapid and ever accelerating rate. Using tools such as meditation, astrology, numerology and other intuitive methods will only serve to help us move forward. As we think so we are. So why not think the highest and brightest? Aim for the stars in your personal spiritual development! All the luck to you in the upcoming New Year!

Guardian Angels Bring us Messages

H

ow many times have you wondered if you were protected by your guardian angels, or even just if they were around you? Sometimes, in moments of desperation, we ask ourselves if our prayers are ever heard, if we are looked after by our Higher Source (God, Divine, Universe, or any other name given depending on your beliefs). At those times we might not realize that our prayers are being heard and, also, that we are protected by our Angels. We might be so busy worrying, that we can be missing our Guardian Angels signs, showing us that we are deeply cared about. Our Guardian Angels send us signs in different manners. One form of sign, which I always enjoy seeing and changes my face into a big smile, is white feathers. Have you ever seen a white feather laying around the ground, or somewhere else unexpectedly, when you were in deep thought about something going on in your life that you weren’t quite happy about? The white feather always reminds me that whatever I do or stop doing about this matter that has me so upset, I have my Angels looking after me and letting me know that I will be alright. Things might not always turn exactly the way we are asking for, but at the end, by trusting that we are watched over and cared about, we should know that we can achieve the desired outcome, or even something better. Another powerful sign that we can receive from our Angels is repeating number sequences. If we think about it, we pay a lot of attention to numbers in our lives, like dates of birth, anniversaries, and holiday dates among others. Our Angels will communicate with us in a level that we can somehow understand by bringing number sequences to our attention. These numbers have a meaning embedded and by understanding their meaning we can better acknowledge and understand the message that is being conveyed to us. For example, the number sequence of 111, as we can see when the clock shows 1:11 or 11:11. This sequence is brought by your Angels to let you know that your thoughts are manifesting, which makes it important to keep your thoughts positive and avoid being in fear, as we manifest what we think and pay attention to. Dreaming brings us messages from our Guardian Angels as well. When we are sleeping, our Ego stops imposing its ideas and thoughts, leaving the space open from any blockage that our busy mind leaves along the way as our Angels deliver their messages to us. One simple way of remembering our dreams and understanding the messages left by the Angels is keeping a journal. Have a writing source nearby where you sleep and write down the dream as soon as you wake up to be able to remember as much detail as possible. These are only a few ways that our Guardian Angels bring us messages to let us know of their presence. Everyone of us has at least one Guardian Angel assigned by and connecting us to our Higher Source. Listen, look around, open your senses to your Guardian Angels. Their mission is to be with you throughout your path in life. They will never leave you stranded. BY Patricia Salas, MA Psychology, Certified Angel Intuitive www.colorsofjoybypatricia.com

THEME - Physical Reality

Angelic Hierarchy, Transformation and Our Physical Reality

By Charles Zinner

O

nce again we are approaching a time of year in which we all seem to want a change in our physical reality. Some want to lose weight; others want a new love life, money, job, fame or life situation. It is a time in which we want utilize our energies to create newness in our lives. It is a time of potential change, and we feel the possibility of entirely reshaping everything in our lives. Physical reality is dependent upon our perceptions, thoughts, beliefs and feelings (emotions), in other words, reality is subjective and personal. Perceptions color our thoughts and beliefs, yet as we know, we change and mature daily, thus what we once perceived and believed may change and no longer hold validity. Thoughts entail the rise of beliefs to which we attach emotions. Some of our most powerful energies are our emotions. Much in life can be accomplished with the addition of the energy of emotions. Emotions are actually ultimately rooted in our deepest level of being. This is because in our first five to six years, we absorb all that goes on around us- in fact; the brainwave level of a young child is in the theta-wave state. This is the state of being which is almost in in a sleep state- a state in which we are most susceptible to hypnotic suggestion. All functions and dysfunctions presented in this time deeply permeate our brain and become the belief that this state of being is “normal”. We develop the understanding and view point that this is the way things are, even though it is really only a personal view. For example if you are in a passive-aggressive situation due to your parents’ role modeling, you believe this is the way you should act and be. This is usually carried into later life. Situations that triggered our emotions in our formative years, are perceived and seen, seemingly again and again, in later life’s circumstances and associated with what we “know” from our early childhood programming. Thus our beliefs and emotions are not only deeply rooted and unseen but they can become directing energies until cleared. It is well known, that the mind and our thoughts have tremendous power. The mind can heal, as can positive emotions which also affect physical and mental healings. In the case of disease, the emotions of anger and fear create the foundation for disease development (such as cancer, liver issues, kidney problems, hypertension). The emotions of laughing, joy and humor, have also shown positive benefits when incorporated in holistic healing modalities- along with relaxation and other calming treatments. This is why beliefs and emotions are so powerful- they literally create our personal world. Thus, we literally have in our very being, the potential for

healing. However, because our “reality” may cause us issues (fear, disease), there are other energies which we can utilize. One can invoke powerful heavenly or Universal energies, the Archangels and angels. Archangels are said to have 50,000 times the energy and power of the angels, who are also powerful in their own right. Key to invoking Beings of Light, such as Archangels and angels is the process of knowing that they are willing and want to help humankind. In fact, biblically they have been commanded by the Creator, to do so, and they wield great power. Raphael, is one of the greatest the Archangels concerned with healing. Remember healing can be on any level and any situation, so no matter what we need rectified, there is a lot of power associated with this great being, the other Archangels, and also the rest of the angelic hierarchy. Call on the angel Oziel for change within – to transform yourself from within by clearing undesirable habits, or Kumiel for rejuvenation if you need energy resulting from overwork. There are many other angels with many strengths and purposes, just waiting to be called on. Regardless of calling on them through thought, word or prayer, or invocation and evocation- they are there and waiting to serve. This is the ultimate secret to working creation of reality- to feel and define the initial energy of the situation- the one you wish to change, and then, in a major positive shift, really “feel” the result of the healing as having already happened. Always give thanks and gratitude for their help because the minute you ask, it Is done! Remember and know, the angelic realm, Spirit, and the celestial hierarchy is there for you.
