The Ozone then penetrates the blood, lymph and fat. By allowing Ozone in, and toxins out, via the sweating process that is induced, Transdermal Ozone Therapy is one of the most powerful methods of detoxifying and oxygenating the body in existence. This accounts for the effect that heat stress has in killing cancer. Both heat stress and Ozone kill cancer so this treatment offers the best

That was a year ago. I followed the same protocol we prescribe for our patients, and now the cancer is gone. I contribute our success to a total life style change and Ozone therapy. Because injectable Ozone therapy is illegal in this country, we modified the program used in other countries to allow us to use it here at the Sentient Temple Healing Center. We have this therapy available here now
for only $25 a treatment. The benefits of Ozone Transdermal Therapy is miraculous. Transdermal Ozone, also known as Hyperthermic Ozone and Transcutaneous Ozone Therapy, is a method in which Ozone is introduced into the body via the skin while sitting in a hot steam cabinet. As the pores of the skin open as a result of being surrounded by the warm steam, Ozone enters the body transdermally (i.e. via the skin).
could this happen to me? I eat 90% organic. I consume no sugar. I have an active life style. I am doing everything right. Of course, 50 years of smoking cigars might have a great deal to do with it. Yes, I quit 15 years ago, but the damage had already been done. The slow build up of symptoms didnâ€™t alert me to my situation until I had achieved a stage four squamous cell carcinoma at the base of my tongue. The tumor was so aggressive it grew out of the side of my throat.

How Much Longer Will You Be Okay With SICK CARE!??! With all of the changes in insurance, making your HEALTH CARE work for you is more important than ever.
e currently have SICK CARE, not HEALTH CARE Last year Americans spent $2.8 trillion on healthcare. That is around $8,000 per person. So does this mean that we are all healthy and living well? Absolutely NOT! In fact, we lead the world in heart disease, obesity, and cancer. Astonishingly, 5 out of 6 Americans will be diagnosed with either heart disease or cancer. If we were spending the most money in healthcare and had the healthiest people, maybe it would be worth it. But we are spending the most money AND have the unhealthiest people. In a study by the Journal of the American Medical Association, of 37 different developed countries the United States ranked 37th (dead last) in terms of overall health of the population. SO where are we spending all of this money? When we are sick or in pain, we go to the doctor. We get prescriptions to help cure and prevent illness and pain. What do we do when that medication has a side effect or no longer works? We go back and get more medications for the next side effect. Americans take up 5% of the world’s population, yet we consume 85% of the world’s medications. You would think that if drugs make you healthy then we would be the healthiest nation, and that is far from the truth. We had 1.1 million people die last year because of drugs and these are not street drugs like heroin or other illegal drugs. These are prescription drugs that were prescribed for the right condition, the right amount, the right time. Prescriptions are not the only culprit, a large amount of that money is spent in nursing homes and cancer treatment centers. We have so many sick and ailing people in our population that we are seeing more and more long-term nursing facilities. People may be living longer, but we are not living better. The focus needs to change. We cannot be okay with a health system that has no regard for health. It is time to take the focus off of SICK care and focus on health. TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH A lot of people believe that genetics are to blame for the disease we see in our society today, but only 2-5% of degenerative illnesses are actually caused by genetics. So that leaves 95-98% of disease that is caused by lifestyle. The foods we eat, the drinks we drink, and the habits we live are the main cause of the increase in disease. Our offices are focused on HEALTH care. We recognize that health is not just about what you eat and whether or not you exercise. Our offices implement maximized mind, maximized nutrition, maximized nerve supply, maximized
oxygen and lean muscle. We personalize each care plan and work with our patients to establish health and wellness goals that create a healthy lifestyle that maximizes each patients’ quality of life. We offer full health and wellness care that excludes drugs, shots, and harmful combinations or both. Our goal is to make sure our patients live the healthiest life possible. BUT WHAT TRULY SETS US APART FROM ALL OTHER WELLNESS CLINICS It is our dedication to whole health wellness. Our patients are not just adjusted and sent on their way. We spend time focusing on spinal CORRECTION not just spinal alignment. By providing our patients with in office and at home stretching, strengthening, and lifestyle changes, our patients are the healthiest they can possibly be without introducing toxins. It is truly about balance and focus on health. What does CORRECTIVE CARE mean? If your spine and Central Nervous System are “abnormal,” there is a need for corrective chiropractic care. This type of care will restore “normal” spinal position and alignment. By properly restoring normal curves to the spine and aligning the vertebrae, it will eliminate interferences allowing your body to function and heal “normally.” This optimizes your chance to live at 100% of your body’s peak performance. A healthy spine will allow your body to express a normal body temperature, a normal blood pressure, and other measureable norms for the spine itself. There are four primary curves of the spine in the lateral (side) view of the spine. These curves give the spine strength, stability, and flexibility. Any loss of integrity of these curves can affect the function of the nervous system as this is the basis of evolution. These misalignments can put further stress on several aspects of the spine including the soft tissue structures, muscles, ligaments and discs that support the spine and its normal function. Much like braces straighten teeth, it is our aim to restore the proper alignment of your spine. Recent research allows us to now know the measurements and proper alignment of your spine. There is a normal body temperature, a normal blood pressure, and there are measureable norms for the spine. We take the necessary steps to restore the regions of abnormal alignment to normal through whole health wellness. Obtaining the level of normal alignment allows us to cure and prevent disease that otherwise leads to a lifetime of harmful shots and pills. Take the next step and allow your body to function at 100% of peak performance.

The Kind Mouse:
Helping Tampa Bay Families Struggling with Food Insecurity
B y S adie H o lmes
magine going to sleep ready for work in the morning, and waking up to a job that isn’t there. As surprising as it may sound, this difficult situation is a reality for an overwhelming number of families within our local area. As a consequence of the complexities within our shifting economy, many people are finding it all too easy to fall in to the downward spiral of unemployment and poverty, often times leading them into a battle with hunger. When people are unable to put food on the table, it’s more than just a physical deficiency they’re experiencing; it is also an intense psychological distress and a damper on their cultural well-being. Since hardworking individuals and families oftentimes do not know how to seek a helping hand when they are struck with the devastation of food insecurity, many continue on, struggling in silence. By recognizing and shining

light on this issue, Kind Mouse Productions Inc. is inspired to make a difference. Dedicated to supporting the dignity of families in transition, the Kind Mouse is tackling the problem of hunger head on. We act as a safety net for those who have been affected by the rough tides of our economy and confidentially provide food and education to families and children that are on their way to a better situation. Along with feeding
as a voice for those in Tampa Bay Area whose struggles are not always heard. Because of her revolutionary idea to address hunger on a local scale, the wheels of the Kind Mouse were founded, and they began to turn as a group of committed volunteers brought her idea to life. Wilkins has personally taken me under her wing as her intern to give me
a minimum of five individual families monthly, our program also allows school children to take foodstuff home each week. By combining our efforts with the Pack-A-Sack4-kids, The Mouse Nibbles Program is consistently delivering food to a great deal of elementary students who worry about dinner when they go home. Gina Wilkins is the compassionate founder of the Kind Mouse, and stands out
a behind the scenes perspective of what running an expanding non-profit organization can look like. By exposing me to the details underlying the intricacies of the system, I’ve come to understand the very passion that guides the ardent force of our fight against hunger. Thanks to
the deeply interwoven web of active organizations with our community, a brilliant fabric of other constructive sponsors and progressive leaders are working together to cultivate change. Every day as the Mouse raises awareness and food donations; we expand our cause one family at a time. We cannot sit on the sidelines and watch as hunger sweeps our world and nation, so we have dedicated ourselves to wiping out the silent suffering of thousands in our local region. We know that there are many more starving children in our city that do not receive any form of assistance, so we are striving to reach out to as many as we can. We believe that no one should ever go hungry! •

he ability to have presence of mind whenever you want or need it is, in my opinion, the greatest ability a person can learn. Being present is not easy. We all have a constant stream of stories going on in our head that keep us from really being present. Yet, when we can step out of our stories and simply allow ourselves to be here now—fully and completely—it’s like stepping into a whole other world. When we have presence of mind or body, we feel totally peaceful and at ease. We are more open to seeing what course of action is best for everyone. We feel good, and from our relaxed presence of mind, we can better act in the world.
How Being Present Can Be Learned
Being present is not something that you “do”—it’s really our natural state once we let go of all the internal obstacles in the way. There are many methods that can help a person learn to let go of their stories and other obstacles that interfere with being present. One easy and powerful way to let go of any thought pattern, story, or belief, keeping you from presence, is to ask yourself two simple questions. The first question is, “Could I allow myself to welcome whatever I’m currently experiencing?” Normally we resist “negative” things, but whatever you resist—persists. By fully welcoming a feeling or thought pattern, it instantly helps to make it more likely to flow right through you—like clouds passing through an open sky.
The second question that can lead to presence of mind is, “Could I allow myself to let go of this (story, thought, etc.) just for right now?” Since “right now” is all that exists, if you can learn to let things go “just for right now,” you will transform your life. A client of mine, named Robert, recently told me that these two questions have completely rocked his world. He excitedly told me that, “Being present was something I used to experience about once a year; now it’s about once an hour!” These questions can work with big or little things. Just now I noticed I was feeling anxious about completing this essay in time for when I have a date with my wife. So I simply welcomed my anxiety. I imagined welcoming it like I might welcome an old friend, noticing exactly how it felt in my body—without resisting it in any way. After a few seconds, it started to feel different. Then I asked the second question, “Could I allow myself to let go of this anxiety just for now?” Instead of answering intellectually, I could feel my body answer for me as I took a big yawn and fully relaxed. I was no longer anxious. Instead, I was fully present. It felt great. From this presence of mind, it was easy to complete the article before my dinner date. If you want to learn about more ways for being present, or if you want to know cutting edge ways to feel more peaceful and happy in daily life, check out Find Happiness Now: 50 Shortcuts for Bringing More Love Into Your Life. •

The Root Chakra
A yogic view on foundation and security
hen we are bombarded with ads and commercials about material possessions it is easy to feel that the more we have on the outside the better we become as human beings. In yogic culture the opposite is true; an internal sense of foundation and security is valued, shifting our awareness from what we own to how we own our human experience. When working with the Root Chakra, or ‘Muladhara’ in Sanskrit, we make the mental transition first that our body, thoughts, and feelings need to be secure before we become content with our external experience of clothes, cars, and money. Yogic culture teaches us that each individual striving to lead a life of serenity and selfless service must begin with themselves, working from the inside out and that suffering comes from attaching ourselves to the outside in hopes that it will benefit our internal state of being. Below are the attributes, key words, and associations found in our Muladhara or Root Chakra. See if you can find more space for these forces in your life, connecting with your foundation from the inside out: Color: Deep ruby red, associated with the slowest frequency of light reminding us to slow down and smell the roses. Check to see how many red articles of clothing you own. Part of the body: Legs, knees, feet, and ankles (our physical foundation). The sciatic nerve running down our legs
looks like a tree’s root system, how did the yogis figure that out without the use of modern medical equipment? Exercises: Static squats and lunges. Muladhara begs us to be grounded and stable, when we rush through movement we compromise our physical integrity, see if slowing down your workout produces better results. Chant: The ‘bija mantra’ or seed sound of the Root Chakra is ‘LAM’ (chanted as LL-AAHH-MM). Vocalization of this seed sound awakens the immune system and tunes into the primordial vibration of grounding and security. Meditation: Becoming a tree. See yourself growing roots deep down into the core of the Earth while your body becomes a sturdy trunk and branches extend from the top of your head, reaching towards the Sun. Thought provoking questions: What is my foundation? How do I feel about money? Do I balance my time efficiently? Do I catch myself when I am ungrounded and make a conscious effort to re-gain my sense of internal stability? In short, when we turn our attention onto the subtle aspects of our internal experience we can better manifest appreciation and value in our external world. Using these associations will strengthen your root and create long lasting security to begin new ventures. Shifting your awareness to a yogic viewpoint will enhance how you experience the world, pivoting from a place of attachment and wanting into a state of contentment and gratitude. •

ABUNDANCE is EVERYWHERE
he desire for abundance, or also known as “getting what I want”, is inherent in all of us. It is even inherent in nature. It is the fundamental impulse of the universe. We instinctively know this, and therefore, we are always seeking more. Nature is always seeking more. This law of perpetual increase is set forth by the very nature of creation. Both humankind and nature have that instinct to create-to desire more. We are all seeking to create more and more in our lives. It is our nature to want more. The desire for abundance is what drives humans in all endeavors whether it is love, health, more material possessions, or peace. It is what drives the world around us. Nature is an ever-increasing creative force of abundance. We love abundance. The normal desire for increased wealth is not an evil or a reprehensible thing. It is simply the desire for a more abundant life. It is aspiration. And because it is the deepest instinct of nature, all of us are attracted to who, how and what can give us more of what we want.
The Natural Desire for Increase
We all desire to have more of the good things of life. When you accept this truth, wonderful blessings will flow into your world. Gratitude for the good in life brings more of the good you want.

Many of us have been taught to deny this desire, and thus we fight inside ourselves. A part of us wants increased life and wealth, and yet a part of us tells us this is wrong and bad.

When fragmented in this way, we can’t manifest the abundance that is possible for us. The universe wants to manifest wealth for us as much as we want wealth for our loved ones and ourselves. When we believe in an abundant universe, not a scarcity universe, prosperity follows our beliefs. The lack of abundance in our life is only a result of our belief in scarcity. Our belief in scarcity results from our belief in a future in which there will never be
it all. Well…that is false. There is abundance all around for all of us. The abundance in our life is a result of our belief in an infinitely abundant universe. Our belief in infinite abundance goes hand in hand with the belief that this infinite abundance exists right now and it is available for us now. Remember that we can live and experience an expanded consciousness of abundance– whole and complete at all times! Accepting the concept that plenty-abundance- exists everywhere allows us to feel worthy-we deserve because there is plenty. One side benefit of living in this consciousness is the feeling of complete safety and security. We don’t fear because we are assured that all is well and we can manifest whatever we need and want next. The secret is “feeling”. Really experiencing what it feels like to realize we can create more of what we want-just like nature. It is our divine gift. www.tampabaywellness.com
Increased Life and Abundance for All People
In this infinitely abundant universe, there is enough for all. You never need to take away from another in order to get what you want for yourself or your family. Manifesting abundance doesn’t work for those who try to take from others. Move away from the competitive model and into the creative model of wealth creation. There is literally no scarcity of any good thing in the universe.
BE AN ABUNDANCE MAGNET
You will notice that those who speak most of prosperity, have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it. Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is a Universal Law. It can be no other way... The way you feel is your point of attraction, and so, the Law of Attraction is most understood when you see yourself as a magnet getting more and more of the way you feel. When you feel healthy and vital and alive and prosperous—you attract more of all of those things.
How to Get What You Want
The power of your creative energy is inherent within you. Follow these five steps and abundance is yours.
Step 1: Know What You Want You must know what you want in order to
get what you want. You must know what you want as specifically as possible. This is the magic first step. Daydreaming about your future will not bring you what you want. Waiting for life to work out the way you’ve always expected won’t bring you what you want. The only way to get what you want is to decide, with clarity and focus, exactly what you want to create. So how do you know what you want? Well, it’s very simple. Write down your desires, your dreams, and everything that you want for your life. Then pick the one thing on your list that you know you could accomplish if you dedicated some energy to it. Pick that one and forget about the rest. Pick the very next goal in the creation of your life and go for it. Write down as specifically and exactly what it is you will create. After it’s finished, move on to the next goal. Step 2: Focus On What You Want You must give positive focus, energy, and attention to your goal. Setting a goal and then forgetting about it will not do. You must imprint it on your conscious and subconscious mind until it becomes reality. You must focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want. Take a look at your goal every day, give it positive focus and attention. Before you fall asleep and after you wake up, instead of worrying about your problems, imagine your goal successfully attained, and feel how you would feel if your goal was accomplished. Go to sleep with this feeling, and your
IS IN THE AIR
subconscious mind will quickly find a way to bring it into your reality. Step 3: Take
Action Now! You must take action towards your goal, and you must take action right now! There is no other time that you can act. The past is gone, the future is an illusion. Making plans to take action is not action. You must take action right now. There is always something that you can do to propel you towards your goal. It doesn’t matter how tiny the action is, or how insignificant you might feel it is, you must do it. There is always some small step you can take. Take that step. You must convince your subconscious mind that you are serious about accomplishing your goal, and there is nothing more convincing than taking action. Step 4: Choose the Same Thing Every Day You must be consistent. You must consistently choose the same goal every day until your goal is accomplished. You cannot send out constantly changing vague wishes into the universe and expect to create results in the real world. You must pick a goal you are in control of and do whatever it takes to make it come true. That is the only path to power and mastery in life, and the only way to ever feel fulfilled. •

Ayurveda & Yoga Sister Sciences
yurveda and Yoga share the same Vedic roots, yet offer different paths to the common goal of self-understanding and ultimately merging with pure consciousness. Both Ayurveda and Yoga originated as a means to end all suffering, presenting an approach to life that is in harmony with the laws of the universe. Yoga is a path to liberation of the spirit. Practicing the asanas (physical postures) of hatha yoga assists you in maintaining a meditative state without the distractions of bodily aches or stiffness. In this steady state of mindful ease, you can better attain spiritual
freedom. Ayurveda also offers a path to pure awareness by maintaining harmony between physical, mental and spiritual health. Ayurveda teaches that through a balancing lifestyle and daily routine that include, dietary, herbal and yogic practices, the body, mind and spirit transcend worldly limitations and experience cosmic consciousness. Ayurveda offers guidance to live according to your individual nature within the constant changes in flow of life. Accordingly, your hatha yoga practice should honor your prakriti (original bodymind type or constitution) and the ever shifting state of vikriti (current body-mind state.) The objectives of an Ayurvedic asana practice are to balance the doshas (principal forces of nature), improve the structural condition of your body, facilitate movement and development of prana (life force energy), and to calm and energize your mind. One of the fundamental principles in Ayurveda is that
opposite actions create balance. Dosha yoga incorporates methods that help to reduce excess or manage the balance of the doshas; vata, pitta and kapha. VATA (Ether & Air) The light, cold and unstable nature of vata requires an approach to yoga that encourages nurturing action, mindfulness and warmth. Practice at a slow, smooth and steady pace. Conserve and restore your energy. Create stability at the base of your pose by maintaining a strong foundation and staying connected to the earth. Remain fully present and inwardly focused. Practice in a warm room or layer your clothes. PITTA (Fire & Water) - The fiery, dynamic and intense qualities of pitta are managed with a yoga practice that encourages relaxed effort, compassion and acceptance. Surrender, relax and enjoy your practice, pausing to reflect on the perfection of ‘being’ instead of ‘doing’. Let go of judgment and competition in the pose, instead, find
contentment. Practice in a moderately cool room with good circulation. KAPHA (Water & Earth) – The slow, dull and heavy tendencies of kapha can be reduced by practicing yoga in a way that encourages invigorating activity, free space and personal challenge. Increase your energy and metabolism by practicing with purposeful intensity and dynamic precision. Experience freedom by lengthening your spine, lifting your arms and expanding your chest. Practice in a moderate or warm temperature. The best way to incorporate Ayurveda into your hatha yoga practice is to have an Ayurvedic consultation with a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner. • Disclaimer: This article was written for educational purposes only and is based on the tradition of Ayurveda.

A Hawaiian Mantra Lets Love Back In
o’oponopono is an ancient Hawaiian huna, a secret to facilitating forgiveness within; or simply, the art of forgiveness. Four healing phrases are employed in a harmonic mantra to help “make things right” or “correct the errors”. It works to cleanse hurt feelings and relieve suffering from being in an unforgiving or unforgiving state. According to the Babylon online dictionary, Ho’oponopono is used to release problems and blocks that cause imbalance, unease and stress in the self; bring peace and balance through physical, mental and spiritual cleansing that involves repentance and transmutation; and create balance, freedom, love, peace and wisdom within individuals, social entities, the world and the universe. Ho’oponopono Forgiveness Mantra I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. These four forgiveness phrases, both individually and collectively, help heal us and our relationships with others, especially loved ones. Each one melts hearts and heals souls.
Going deeper, we can voice this mantra in communing with the divine and see the effect both within and without. I am sorry for participating in this erroneous memory data. Please forgive me for not seeing the perfection in this moment, and playing back a universal memory I have received within me that is riddled with wrongs and errors. Thank you for cleansing me, others, the world and the universe. I love you. Loving the sweet divine is the greatest power or energy there is in all space. I am now loving everyone involved and affected. I know that my perceptions of them are within me, where this error first occurred and where it can be eradicated. Like planting a seed in soil that grows into nothing of our making, the divine does the work as we allow it to work through us. As we come to consistently use the Ho’oponopono mantra, we may elect to select a special word as a substitute for the whole mantra to use as a touchstone, so that when we say or think this word, we are immediately clear and clean of all the pain associated with any erroneous memory data presented. Our heart is healed and family or friends will return to relationships with a lighter heart. We do not need to understand how it works, only that it does. •

Tampa Bay Wellness • APRIL 2014
Creation, prosperity, growth… on all levels April, the fourth month, denoted as 4 energy, is the number of creation and earth materiality. April is that time of year when spring finally gets here, showing growth and green after months of chill and winter in the north. In the south, a profusion of flowering occurs after the Vernal Equinox (March 21) and the initial onset of blossoming during that third month. April’s eruption of energy demonstrates the infinite energy of spirit manifesting into form. Not only do we see this, but we also feel it as we sense “spring is in the air”! The fourth month is a propitious in that its 4 energies are feminine in nature, ruled by the planet Uranus (denoting tremendous energy shifts), and represented by Aquarius (the powerful air sign of change) in the 11th House of friendships, relationships and organizations. This energy is a powerful shifting on many levels and influences us to move forward by discarding those things which no longer serve us. In turn this enables us, like spring, to grow and prosper in ways that we may never have thought possible. With the energies of growth and change we are influenced to examine old relationships and form new beliefs, new thoughts, clear limiting emotions, and form new and healthier friendships, and, perhaps, even to join or form new organizations. 20 APRIL 2014 • Tampa Bay Wellness
Spring is one of four seasons, and similar to the Wands in the tarot, which are denoted in red, the color of fire and passion with green buds and leaves (growth), exhibits incoming energies pertaining to new business, contracts and jobs. In other words, there is an energy of creation which flows through all of us as well as in nature. Thus there is, in April, a stimulus to begin to grow, create and manifest a prosperity on the soul level as well as the physical. April’s springtime is truly a demonstration of creation’s boundless ability to manifest as nature begins to grow and ultimately to blossom into fruition within the next month as May flowers and spring crops and newness in every arena of life. As April is the fourth month, individuals also reflect this energy. The 4 person is one who creates, is hard-working, honest, steadfast, realistic, loyal, ethical, organized and detailed oriented. This reflects the qualities as mentioned regarding the four energies of the month of April. This type of person is one which works hard to build a society and provide a foundation for solid achievement. They can be found in the media, aviation, engineering, computer, agribusiness, mechanics, sculptors, electrical, construction and plumbing occupations. To determine if a person personifies these qualities in numerology the person’s name and date of birth is used. Using the date of birth of the noted psychologist Sigmund Freud, May 6, 1856, (5th month May =5, 6=6, 1+8+5+6=20 =2+0=2: 5+6+2=13 = 1+3= 4), we find
that as a four, his life mission or life path was about service and order in helping others. For people who are born on the 4th, 13th, 22 or 31st of a month, this also denotes part of a person’s life purpose: to develop a sense of accomplishment, purpose and vision. Often this is achieved through solid work and organization. The types of energies that get along best with the number 4 are those that are developing their individuality (1), the diplomat (2), the one who is balanced and responsible (6), and the analytical personality (7). However, as in all cases, the power of choice and free will over rides all. We are in a 7 Universal year (2+0+1+4=7) whose energies are those of action as well as intuition, silent wisdom, mysticism and spirituality. The 4 energies are harmonious with the Universal year’s energies, as both are action-oriented, and both strive to attainment of goals on all levels. How does one determine who is a particular harmonious match? The deepest and most profound way is to use the numerology which determines the soul level motivation, which is derived from the vowels in a person’s name. Example Sue Ann Smith: “u, e”, plus “a”, plus “I”: the numbers according to numerology are “ue”=3+5 (=8), “a”=1, “I”=9; thus 8+1+9=18; 18 = 1+8; thus finally 9. In this case the soul level
urge for this person would be 9, which is considered inharmonious with 4 in numerology. This simply means for the couple, the relationship would be rocky, but then, some of the rockiest times in a person’s life can teach the most at the soul level. This calculation also provides the potential couple with an accurate assessment of the likelihood of relationship success, and a basis for deciding to proceed further into it. Numerology determines potentials, and is a powerful tool in determining many pertinent aspects of one’s personality. These types of calculations can be done within minutes and provide valid and consistent indicators of the potentials for relationship interactions, while acknowledging the overriding determinants known as free will and choice. Numerology can help gain selfknowledge as well as determining many other aspects of one’s life, situation and events. •

What are the Four Blood Moons?
Looking at What Our Moon, Christian Spirituality & History maybe Telling Us B y K at y C o x
he Book of Genesis says God uses the sun, moon, and stars for signs and seasons. Examples can be found throughout the Bible. Think of how a star led the wise men to Jesus or how the sun stood still as Joshua led Israel to victory over its enemies. According to Pastor John Hagee, author of Four Blood Moons, Something is about to change, God is getting ready to speak this way once again. “There’s a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way,” Hagee told CBN News. “I believe that in these next two years, we’re going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world,” he predicted.
Such moons appear several times in scripture. In the book of Joel, God says there will be “wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire…the sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” In Acts, the Apostle Peter repeats that verse from Joel. And the book of Revelation says that during the Great Tribulation, “the moon will become like blood.” Blood moons are set to appear in April 2014, on Passover, and then again in September 2014 during the Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot. The timing is the same for 2015 -- a total of four blood moons, all appearing on Jewish feast days.
Bruce McClure of EarthSky, says “John Hagee uses the term Blood Moon to apply to the full moons of the upcoming tetrad – four successive total lunar eclipses, with no partial lunar eclipses in between, each of which is separated from the other by six lunar months (six full moons) in 2014 and 2015”. Bruce is an astronomy writer and says that a total lunar eclipse is often described as appearing as blood red. They appear reddish because sunlight from the Earth’s sunrises and sunsets are scattered by the Earth’s atmosphere and falls on the surface of the eclipsed moon.
The dates of Biblical prophecy for the upcoming tetrad, the Four Blood Moons, are: Total lunar eclipse on April 15th 2014.Tolal lunar eclipse on October 8th 2014. Then a Total lunar eclipse April 4th 2015 and Total lunar eclipse September 28th 2015. The April 2014 and 2015 total lunar eclipses line up with the feast of Passover while the October 2014 and September 2015 total lunar eclipses line up with the feast of Tabemacles.
Historic Significance What the Future Holds
It was confirmed by NASA that we have had “Blood-Red Moons” on the first day of Passover and the first day of the feast of Tabemacles on back-to-back years seven times since 1 A.D. In the past, the rare www.tampabaywellness.com
appearance of four blood moons on these feast days has coincided with major events for Israel and the Jewish people. In 1492, Spain, led by Queen Isabella, expelled the Jews. Columbus also discovered America, which became a safe haven for the Jewish people.
John Hagee explains “In each of these blood moons, you have something that begins in tragedy and ends in triumph” for Israel. For instance, in 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation. After 2,000 years, 66 nations were born into one nation, in one day. Hagee noted “That was a supernatural something that happened following the tragedy of the Holocaust.” The Holocaust began in 1941 when German Military were specifically tasked with killing Jews were sent to the Eastern Front and ended in 1945 when the Nazis were defeated by Allied Powers. The next tetrad of lunar eclipses happened in 1967 when Israel won the Six-Day War and recaptured Jerusalem. The Six-Day War was fought between June 5th and June 10th, 1967 by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt, known then as the United Arab Republic, Jordan and Syria. With this triumph, Hagee commented, “For the first time in 2,000 years, Jerusalem and the State of Israel were together again”.
What the Future Holds
The blood moons of 2014 and 2015 are poised to appear as Iran works toward nuclear weapons and Israel’s neighbors, Egypt and Syria, are in chaos. Then there is Putin’s Russia, with its vastly weakened democratic institutions over the last two years just before the recent invasion of Ukrainian Crimea. If the past sheds light into what these Blood Moons hold, Yes indeed, we can see that “Something is about to Change”. • Tampa Bay Wellness • APRIL 2014
The Art of Fingernail and Tongue Analysis
s Jimmy Buffet famously sings, “I treat my body like a temple and you treat yours like a tent!”. How funny. We are very fortunate to be able to move around this planet in these extraordinary vehicles called our human bodies. And truly many of us treat our bodies like a tent, not a temple. Along with that, we don’t realize how hard our body is trying to communicate with us when something needs attention.
There is a fascinating body of work called Fingernail and Tongue Analysis researched in depth by Dr. Tsu Tsair Chi, a California PhD and naturopath. Dr. Chi and I met 14 years ago at a Natural Foods Trade Show. His teachings were so extraordinary, I flew from Florida to California 3 days after our meeting to begin my study of these analysis techniques and the Chi products. Dr. Chi has also created 50 herbal formulations that address most ailments afflicting modern man. Over the last 14 years, I have found them to be highly effective at preventing and even reversing

some of these conditions. My company, Chi Analysis, was created to offer these products to the Tampa Bay area and teach these fingernail and tongue techniques.
So, enough about me. Here are some fingernail and tongue tips that you can use on yourself and your loved ones. 1. If you see a thin black line on the fingernail that runs from the cuticle to the tip, that is a sign of possible internal bleeding. If this line persists, see your doctor. 2. A diagonal line in the earlobe is a sign of possible heart disease and artery blockage. 3. Sudden onset baby hair on the cheeks can be an early warning of lung or colon cancer. 4. Horizontal brown wrinkling on the back of the neck may be indicating diabetes. 5. A crack in the center of the tongue shows stomach and digestive problems.
6. White spots on the nails could be a hormone imbalance in men or women. 7. Lines on the nails from cuticle to tip that look like beads on a string are showing osteoporosis. Once a year, Chi Analysis is extremely fortunate to sponsor Dr. Chi’s visits to the Tampa Bay area. On April 18, Dr. Chi is visiting Clearwater to give a free lecture on these and other Analysis tips. On April 19 you can have your own fingernail and tongue analysis by Dr. Chi himself.

Awaken Your Taste Buds this Spring
pring is finally here and it’s time to awaken our taste buds with fresh, delicious foods. Did you know that we all have about 10,000 taste buds, mainly on the tongue with a few at the back of the throat and on the palate? A taste bud is a taste receptor. There are four types of taste receptors: (1) sweet, as produced by sugar: sweet receptors are mostly on the tip of the tongue (noted in a child’s preference to lick a candy sucker rather than chew it); (2) sour, as produced by vinegar: sour receptors occur primarily along the sides of the tongue and are stimulated mainly by acids; (3) salty, as produced by table salt: salt receptors are most common in the tip and upper front portion of the tongue. Mainly inorganic salts stimulate them; and (4) bitter, as produced by caffeine: bitter receptors are located toward the back of the tongue. They are stimulated by a variety of chemical substances, most of which are organic compounds, although some inorganic salts of magnesium and calcium produce bitter sensations too. All tastes are formed from a mixture of these basic elements. As we celebrate Earth Month in April, I encourage you to rethink what you put on your plate and challenge you to buy, for one whole month, your food ONLY from local farmers & growers. Why, you may ask. Because you will: 1) Support a local business (or 2, or
more), along with their families (as these are typically family owned); 2) Make new friends by getting to know where you food comes from; 3) Support the environment and the Earth (buying local reduces carbon dioxide emission, because no need for cross country transportaion); 4) Revive your taste buds and feed your body and soul with nutrient-rich organically grown produce and grass-fed meat. Yes, your food will taste drastically different than what you’ve been accustomed to. I know what is going through your mind as you are reading this, I do. And the reason I do is because my clients and my students all ask me the same question when we approach that subject: but those cost more… how do you justify buying organic when you are on a tight budget with children? Great question. You just need to re-think the way you look at food. Nutrient-rich foods will fill you up and keep your tunmmy full for much longer than their empty, nutrient-deficient “look-alikes”, which means that you, and your kids, will need to eat a lot less of these foods to be satiated. When you buy in bulk (think rice,
grains, cereals, nuts, seeds), you don’t pay for the marketing, the packaging and the labor, thus you pay a lot LESS per pound that the pretty packaged versions, which leaves you more money for what’s worth paying more for. As a rule of thumb, when it comes to produce, if I eat the skin (apples, grapes, berries), then I buy organic, if I do not eat the skin (avocados, pineapple, bananas) then, I don’t worry so much about it being non organic. If you cannot afford grass-fed meats, then look for labels that read “hormone and antibiotic free”. I was born and raised in France, where we grew a lot of our own produce, and shopped for the majority of our foods at local markets and the two farms in our village. We talked to the growers and the farmers, made friends with their kids (who were my age), bought their goods, brought them home and ate them that day. I will never forget the aromas of the different specialties as we walked the isles of the outdoor markets. Appetizing, healthy fruits and vegetables that were grown with great care and love and that were just picked the day before. Whenever I go back and visit, I always make sure I check out the dates when the town I’m in has its local outdoor farmers market, and I make sure to go wander, awaken my taste buds, and get a good dose of “make-me-feel-good” sensory overload therapy. Not sure where your local farmers and growers are located at? Check out this great website www.eatlocalgrown.com, enter your zip code at the top in the search box, and you will see the list of all of them within a 15-mile radius of where you live.

very part of our body; cell, bone, tissue and molecule was born with a normal healthy frequency of vibration called “Chi or Energy”. During the early years of growing up, we build layers of imbalances and blockages of this vital Chi/Energy. This imbalance/blockage stops or limits our normal frequency to our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels of our well being. We literaly “get out of tune or sync” with our own natural and normal frequency.

Tampa Bay Wellness • APRIL 2014
APRIL - 2014
ARIES Question deeply where you may feel you are constrained, limited in relationships. Understand that freedom will be an ongoing issue for you, not only as a trend over your life, but particularly from 2011 to 2018. Respect that. It is crucial to “get” that your outer life needs to reflect your innermost desires—this is a key point to making evolutionary progress and capturing passion and fulfillment.
Take full advantage of educational opportunities and understand that YOU are very much under an influence that will insist you leave the past in the past and make new beginnings where is needed. Make your life more secure via your own efforts, minimizing your dependencies on outer situations and structures.
GEMINI Move forward on your creative projects, business building, writing and communicating. Refinance if necessary, review investments, have a good amount of Cash on hand for the unexpected, and optimize your health. Keep of good cheer and others will respond!
Travel is important in addition to decision making, relationships and the setting of boundaries, the refusal to rescue, giving others new freedom to make all the mistakes they need. It is always a useful idea to follow the maxim. “If they need your help, they will ask you.” Keep it simple.
CAPRICORN The deeper answer is that you are now being called to live more like your true self, or soul, would like you to live and BE. Particularly, for those born from Dec 30 to Jan 4, 2014 will be especially meaningful and eventful for you. Do not hold onto any old rigid, stubborn, inflexible, bossy old ideas for any reason. Let go of your need to be right
LEO Leave all comfort zones this year and try new things, allow yourself to make mistakes, go deeper into life events rather than turning away or smugly thinking you can afford to pass this or that up. Music is very good for you this year-the kind of music that can deepen and uplift at the same time. Recommended: Theta CDS by Dr. Jeffrey Thompson.
Your ideas are often what the world needs, coupled with your often hidden talent for uniqueness and innovation. To do this, you must tear your gaze away from your self, roll up your sleeves and ask yourself if you wouldn’t be better off just walking on and finding your own unique place in the sun?
Opportunities to transform lifestyle, test relationship parameters and strengths, review partnerships and finances, family matter, all spill on the table periodically over 2014. Professional growth and issues will need attention as well as joint finances. A financial review is necessary, calling for revelations and greater transparency if you are sharing with another and even if you are not, there are changes to be made.
AQUARIUS It will be time to revisit and look at issues such as UFO’s, technological advances, research into the unknown, life and death mysteries, healing abilities and expressing your own unique projects and creations. It is highly likely, particularly after July of 2014 you and your work can expand more, come to more notice with an increase in your earning potential!
VIRGO Health, work and workplace issues are positively supported. Service is the ongoing trend within your entire life however the need over 2014 is to reevaluate $ challenges, spending for what you only really want, thus managing your resources more effectively. You can truly express yourself more powerfully over this year!
SAGITTARIUS Fears related to change and loss can creep in despite your best efforts… just weird, little stirrings of anxiety, like an ocean wave that washes in, and then retreats. You are being called to go beyond your current limits in the form of embracing opportunities that will arise particularly over the months of April-June and November of 2014!
Along the lines of the clues above in Aquarius the key call is for you to come out more and to allow your capacity for imaginative play, creativity, great ideas and cosmic attunement to come to the fore. Neptune, the only planet linked with the actual symbol of the soul field, Pluto, is calling you to dissolve what you have known and set your sails for new shores!
