Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) has helped millions of people. Have you ever considered that it could help you?

Did you recently hear about the toddler whose brain damage was reversed by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy after nearly drowning? Or the stroke patient who lost mobility and was able to regain it again with HBOT. Or maybe you heard of the autistic child that started speaking for the first time in 14 years?



Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment to enhance the body’s natural healing process by breathing 100% Oxygen in a total body chamber with controlled atmospheric pressure. First it removes swelling or edema and then it kills anaerobic bacteria and helps detoxify your body. Most impressively it mobilizes your stem cells to repair body damage naturally. A Partial List of Conditions That We See:

• Autism • Stroke • Cerebral Palsy • TBI

• Multiple Sclerosis • Chronic Fatigue • Fibromyalgia • Diabetes • Arthritis

We would love to hear from you! Comments, contributions, etc. We are going more Social Media! Adding Calendar listings and advertiser’s ads online. We’ve been there and done that some over the years but intend to put a more concerted effort into it. Hope you like this month’s issue. Always a labor of love, and much appreciation to all of our contributors!

• Bell’s Palsy • Lyme Disease • Liver Failure • Sports Injuries • and more

Destiny -Soul Evolution


aining mastery of living on Earth is certainly a great feat and challenge in certain moments.  God gave us free will to have a wide variety of experiences that are possible in this domain.  This free will structure widens and deepens the ways in which we can experience new and different situations and does lead to the falling and challenges that make up our life journeys.  With all these wide and various life experiences, it takes focus, perseverance and work to get right, clear, understand, uplift, alchemize and grow.  Ultimately, with experience, rising from the challenges and falling, we can gain the wisdoms and become more aware, responsive, responsible, loving and wise.  We learn how to raise vibrations and consciousness as we live in this way.  Then, as we gain in wisdoms, we can uplift and assist others as guides, teachers and way showers.     As we experience life, we come to the realization that only the individual person can make changes within and no one else is given the authority, not even God.  The individual must take the responsibility to make the changes for one’s highest good in order to grow.  Also, we come to realize it is up to the individual to see the control of others playing out and to make the choices and communications needed to liberate oneself from being controlled and manipulated.  Only through experience, awareness, insight, action, can liberation be achieved more.  Every experience is an opportunity to gain awareness, gain understanding, practice alchemy and level up.  This is the path that leads to more conscious awareness, conscious living and wisdoms.     We are souls in evolution here to gain the wisdoms through experiencing, and vital to the process is having conscious communication from the soul self with higherself and spirit.  Without knowledge of soul and spirit, you cannot gain the guidance, assistance and details needed to manifest destiny work.  Get to know who you are as soul and spend time in spiritual connection and communication, which is prayer and meditation time.  Ask questions and ask all questions that come to you and create the quiet space and time needed to

receive the answers.  Learn how to do this more and more.  Practice.  Gain insight and awareness with steadfast purpose and discipline as you journey each and every day.  When you learn and get going on this, you can communicate through your channel to access and receive the necessary messages regarding every aspect of your life.     It is also important to receive messages regarding guidance for learning about spirit knowledge and learning skills to alchemize lower vibrations to neutral.  You can then truly work on dissolving the negative energies you are holding onto.  They may be from recent or past experiences.  All negative energies need to be healed out.  Set the intention to dissolve to completion the negative energies from each situation of the past still playing and coming up in your mind.  When it is dissolved to zero point, the energies will no longer play in your mind and emotions.  That is how you achieve more liberation from the past.     The path of ascension (consciousness evolution) of the soul is gaining wisdoms, gaining of virtues, mastering the mind, fulfilling higher life purpose and missions, that which is written in your destiny in the Akashic Records, balancing and liberating the negative energies of the present and past by alchemizing the lower vibrational energies, expanding love and spirit and creating with consciousness, love and spirit into the world of form.   There is so much purpose in our existence.  It’s time to get clarity on living with purpose and take actions to get more in alignment with soul work, higher life purpose work and destiny.  It’s also time to focus on and continue to liberate, alchemize, gain the virtues and wisdoms, expand love and light and create higher vibrational experiences.  All higher life purpose is designed to bring in what’s needed on the planet, new or upgraded services, products, knowledge and technology so that we as a collective can evolve for creative collective conscious living.  We must choose and do the work.  The future is up to us.  We are the co-creators.

Tampa Bay Wellness


xploring the meaning of identity was probably one of my favorite courses during my college degree. How people define themselves fascinates me; it shapes our entire behavior both consciously and sub-consciously and on both an individual and group basis. It always interests me the labels people choose to use to describe themselves and also the labels others use. So who am I? What labels do I choose to use? I proudly define myself as British. Although I was born and raised in England, I moved to Wales for college and Cardiff holds lots of my fondest memories. Often, I say I am from Wales as this is the place that most feels like ‘home’ to me. While I have lived in Florida for 4 years now, and have no plans to leave, I still proudly speak with a British accent and will do throughout my life. Being British is the core of my identity, regardless of whatever political or socio-economic issues arise.  My values dictate a lot of who I am and what I spend my time doing. Family is important to me and I make time to make the most of these relationships. Having lived apart from them for a number of years growing up, the novelty of being able to send a “Happy Monday” text in real time still sometimes hits. Fitness, or more specifically, lifting weights, is probably something everyone I know would immediately say I like to do. It has been a huge part of my life for around 6 years; it has given me a sense of purpose when times have been tough; it has given me much improved self-confidence and it has also (mainly) enabled me to open milk containers! I find it the ultimate de-stressor and the ultimate post-work treat to look forward to, no matter what the day has thrown at me. I am also passionate about work, and always have been. I can’t imagine staying in a job or even a career field that I didn’t just love. It takes up too much of my time and provides me with all my financial ability to live for me to think of it as just a pay check. I know that isn’t true for everyone, but, to me, work and being successful at work, has always been a huge priority of mine. Feeding my body with goodness is another area I whole-heartedly embrace daily. I have devoted a lot of time to nutrition over the last 5 years and know what my body needs, what satiates me and what delights me. I see it as a huge privilege to be able to choose exactly what I feed myself and to be educated on my choices. Having self-imposed extreme dieting to get ready for the bodybuilding stage, I know what starvation feels like. Having the choice to put myself through that is a privilege, most other starving humans are put through it out of circumstance. I recognize this and volunteer with Feeding Tampa Bay to assist those who are hungry, but without the luxury of choosing to be. So who am I? I am all these things and more. My greatest qualities are also my greatest flaws. My successes are inter-mingled with failures. My daily endeavor to be the best I can be doesn’t always materialize. Some days I roll out of bed feeling extremely passionate and motivated to maximize the day. Other times, I just want to snuggle my dog. I love that identity, like life, is not stagnant. It is ever-changing, evolving and can be whatever you want it to be.

Spotlight on . . . What is your education? I have Doctor of Pharmacy Degree (PharmD) from University of Florida and Bachelor of Computer Science from Charles Stuart University in Australia.

How long have you been in business? Why did you open where you did? We opened 2 years ago. I have traditionally practiced pharmacy within the constraints of big box retail chain stores. I decided to leave the security of working for someone else and practice pharmacy by spending quality time with patients, empowering them through education, and encouraging them to take ownership of their own health. Palm Harbor is a nice location close to my home, so I decided to take the risk and practice what I love. I also have a passion for compounding and wanted to incorporate individualized medicine into my practice.

How are you different than other business of your type? In todays high stress world, we are here as a bridge to guide our patients into wellness. We establish trust with our patients through our time spent with each and every one of them. This is an integrative pharmacy that bridges alternative therapies with traditional pharmacy. We are into health management NOT disease management.

What specifically does your business /practice do? We are a traditional pharmacy that is integrated with other alternative therapies. Our services include traditional medications, compounded medications, Ayurveda herbs, functional medicine supplements, Bemer mat, O2 bar, and ongoing community education classes by experts in alternative therapies. What is your area of specialty? My area of expertise is Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. It is an individualized approach to patient care. Your compounded medicine is made specifically for you based on your labs from the doctor. My goal is to educate my patients on the significant role hormonal imbalances have in their overall health. I also spend time educating health professionals about the role of hormones and how to optimize their patients health. This is complimented with my passion for Ayurveda. It is a whole medical system that treats you inside out. I will combine BHRT with Ayurveda to get the best results for my patients. Acne in young adults is another area that I am passionate about. It is always hormone related and we can really help them get rid of their acne for good. I have also been dispensing and educating about hemp CBD oil for over 5 years now and have helped so many patients achieve what they want with these amazing oils.

What drives you to do what you do? The more I educate myself about functional medicine, the greater my drive to put it into practice. Being a member of A4m – American academy of anti aging medicine keeps me on the forefront of the latest. Where do you come from? I come from the Fiji Islands tucked away in the South Pacific Ocean. I studied in Australia, worked in New Zealand, and now I practice as a pharmacist in Palm Harbor. What is your mantra in your life or business? My mantra in life is to never give up! Life has its ups and downs but we have to keep moving and find new ways. I believe that there is always a way!!!!!! Anything you would like to mention? Sunlife pharmacy treats the whole person (mind, body, and soul). I achieve this by offering my patients all kinds of different healing modalities from East and West! I also work with health professionals who would like to provide their unique services. Some modalities offered are: Reiki, health coaching, palm readers, and naturopathic recommendations. I am always looking for collaboration so If there is anyone who practices in a different healing modality, feel free to contact me or stop by for a visit.

Creating a Life Worth Living

or the past thirty-five years, I’ve been on a quest to inspire and lift people to a higher expression of life. My personal vision is to guide people to their purpose, knowing that when one fully awakens to who they are and why they are on the planet, they begin to naturally share their gift with humankind and, in the process, create an enriching life for themselves and the world around them. As a writer, I am the proud author of six books—three of which are bestselling, award-winning books: The Art of Being - 101 Was to Practice Purpose in Your Life; The Art of Uncertainty - How to Live In the Mystery of Life and Love It; and The Art of Abundance - Ten Rules for a Prosperous Life. When they were published all three books were recipients of either a Gold or Silver Nautilus “Better Books for a Better World” award. Study Guides are available for all three books as a free download at In addition to my books, I am also a columnist for Science of Mind Magazine, Paradise News, Tampa Bay Wellness and, from time-to-time, various other print and online publications such as Natural Awakenings and the Huffington Post. As a spiritual mentor, I have the honor of working with people around the world (via Zoom or Skype). A number of my mentoring clients are aspiring writers, life coaches, and public speakers who desire to find and develop their authentic voice, sharpen their communication skills and build an effective platform to take their message to the world. Others are business professionals on a quest to find a deeper sense of inner peace in the midst of their hectic jobs, or individuals who are seeking support in deepening their overall sense of direction, purpose, and meaning in their lives. As a keynote speaker, I am equally comfortable speaking to an audience seeking spiritual inspiration—or to those seeking a purely secular motivational message. In other words, I love speaking to spiritual communities as well as on

the corporate stage. I believe I have the ability to touch and awaken what lies within the hearts and minds of everyone; a desire to know that their life matters and that each one has a gift to reveal and share with the world. My skill rests in my ability to bring people passionately into alignment with their purpose. Many of my talks are based on my books. The takeaway: Regardless of the medium—as a writer, spiritual mentor, or keynote speaker—I work diligently at applying my understanding of universal principles to draw upon wisdom from both eastern and western philosophies in a manner that promote a contemporary, life-affirming, spiritually logical and positive outlook on life. This is what I believe: I believe there is a deeper consciousness of unity, cooperation, and reverence rising in humankind where the value of all life, regardless of ethnicity, geography, culture or sexual orientation, is considered sacred. I believe this consciousness of unity, cooperation, and reverence for life and the planet will be one of the most significant influences upon society as we approach the challenges of 21st-century living. I believe we each have the capacity and, ultimately, the responsibility to contribute something positive to this world, leaving it a better place than it was when we arrived. I want to thank Keith, the editor of Tampa Bay Wellness magazine for the opportunity to share my passion with all of you! This is a great magazine and I encourage you to support it and its advertisers—it’s one way to ensure that your community will continue being the exquisite paradise it is!

hen I go to my networking groups, I have 35 seconds and sometimes a minute to explain who I am. I always say I am “your psychic of the day” and then I explain that I am a spirit medium. I try to put humor into my line of work. Not everyone agrees to psychic and or spirit medium. My business card states intuitive counselor, spirit medium and that is what I like to believe. Yes, I have the capability of receiving messages or memories from what I call the ‘spirit world’ or I could say from those that are deceased. Symbols, words and gut instinct are typically how I receive the information that I share during a reading. How does this ability help others you might ask? With all readings, I am tuned into the present of today. I do this with the help of my spirit guide Blue Feather. He is strong and was a good warrior. Together we offer information that is exceptionally helpful to the individual; confirmation and insight to what is going on around them at that time. We relate to NOW and into the future. Symbols are often given at times to create more awareness during the reading. We concern ourselves with how we explain our thoughts and articulate this to each person. Questions can be asked, and answers found. Trust is crucial in the line of counseling. When I hear words or see symbols, I need to trust what I see or hear from Spirit. Sometimes people’s facial expressions tell me a lot especially if I say something out of the ordinary. Should someone respond - no, they don’t think so - I offer the message for them to contemplate knowing that time will always tell. The information in the messages do not always happen immediately. It is best to give yourself or Spirit time. Many clients have shared that the insights from a reading can manifest in a day or one year later. As a spirit medium, I enjoy and appreciate the symbols and words given to me by the deceased with support from Spirit which in my case is Blue Feather, my guide. He is my gate keeper, protector and the one that allows impressions and words to flow to me. They are memories or words of love and encouragement. I have been taught to forget but sometimes it can be a significant experience, so I ask permission from my client to remember and speak it. One memorable vision that I had was with a client’s husband sitting on a back patio blowing bubbles as a child does. I asked her why. She shared with me that when he was on the earth plane, he blew bubbles for his grandchildren when they were small. The other part of that memory was he was a policeman. I thought that was very special because I don’t see or know of many policemen who do that. The other good part of this story is that my client left happy, knowing her husband was at peace and the message was his way of comforting her from the other side. We are all psychic or intuitive in many ways. All we need to do is listen but most of all TRUST. Understand we have guides, angels, family and friends hanging around us to help get us to the next level of life. Most of all believe and enjoy because life is an adventure. Reach Janet at:

March 21st – April 19th

June 21st – July 22nd

Sept. 23rd – Oct. 22nd

Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th

It is time to eliminate old grievances, wash the bedding and make a space for yourself both inwardly and outwardly that feels soft yet secure. You have weathered much over the past several years. It is time to lay new ground. Be thoughtful about it.

You are starting to make some progress. Pick up a forgotten project or goal and begin completion steps. Figure out some new ways to strategize finances and relationships. Safeguard the things you hold most dear.



April 20th – May 20th

July 23 – August 22

You need to shake things up a bit. Start shifting a few of your routines. Try out some new foods, plan a short distance travel trip to a place you’ve thought of visiting. Make a phone call or two to contacts you enjoy or have enjoyed in the past.

Take some time out for the purpose of figuring out what brings you enjoyment and a sense of fulfillment. As you do this, you will reveal elements you are not really sure about or just need to let them go.



Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th

October 23 to November 21

Move a bit more slower as you took stock of the opportunities that shall present themselves. Move toward the ones that look like fun and can increase your bottom line. This marks a beginning of a new cycle of fun and creativity. Enjoy the rebirth.



May 21st– June 20th

August 23 to September 22

It time for motion. In your case, it is both internal and external levels that need to move. Close down a relationship completely or take a fresh new approach. Logistically, it is time to figure out some things relative to your environment. Time for a field trip or two.

Take stock of resources and income. Make sure to build up a reserve account for expenses. Let go of any clutter or sell the things you no longer want or use. It is time to make sure your deck is clean. It will bring a better tomorrow.

Things may seem to be a bit muddled and confused but relax, it will all sort itself out as things settle down a bit more. Keep an eye on your credit cards and begin to dial back any superfluous expenses. Contain, conserve, communicate.

Make the most of opportunities that are appearing in your life. Those of you that have prepared and took action relative to their dreams can continue to grow, prosper and celebrate their accomplishments. Your pace can pick up so go with it.



Be super gentle with yourself over coming months. Bring some fresh new ideas home and experiment with your home/garden. Bring new reading materials in too. It is time to seed both mind and foundation in new possibility. Enjoy.

Feb. 19th – March 20th

Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st Step back a little and begin to reevaluate your goals. What needs to be shifted, eliminated or expanded upon? What ideas can you table until next year. Act on your priorities now. Time is of the essence.

Its time to bring some things to culmination and begin to identify at least one new project to initiate for the fall. Allow yourself to doodle and dance a bit more, taking in stride any challenges that may arise. Provide some soup and solace to a friend in need. Tough times.

am a certified intuitive consoler, certified medical intuitive, past life regression therapist, Reiki Master and an ordained minister. I also have roles as wife, mother, sister and grandmother. ( I love the grandmother one!). I have a bachelor’s degree in psychology and Human Resources. I have a master’s degree in counseling and a master’s degree in theology and am an ordained minister. I am certified by Dr. Norm Shealy and Dr. Carolyne Myss through Holos University graduate seminary. I have been a perpetual student of psychology and spiritual studies. The reason I pursued these many areas was because I always looked for personal guidance. I sought better ways and better answers. In my various positions as Human Resource Director, healer, and Career counselor, I found people coming to me with questions, who were seeking guidance and advice. That is the other reason I took so many classes, to find out how I could make sense of life and to help others. By following my heart’s desire, I opened a metaphysical bookstore simple because I loved books and loved the concepts of metaphysics.

A learning experience for sure. However, that is where I began my intuitive counseling. People would come in the store, not only for books, but to ask questions, and seek help, and guidance with their life’s situations. I have always been very sensing and feeling about others. I realized I could “tune into” a person’s energy field. That led me to more classes in intuitive development at the Edgar Cayce Foundation in Virginia Beach, and also the Arthur Findley College for mediumship & intuitive studies in England. I loved these experience and lessons. They answered a lot of personal questions and well as helping others. Thus, my career began full time as an intuitive counselor. I have enjoyed my work and I have met many wonderful people. I have an office in Clearwater where I see local clients and I also have many phone clients who are out of state and in other countries. I also teach a variety of classes. I am passionate about finding new ways of spiritual healing, our spiritual soul, helping others through the maze of their life and lessons of mastering goals.

Sleepless in the sunshine state Imagine never getting a good night sleep. Ever.

As a child, I would constantly hear the voices of multiple people calling my name at night asking me to join them somewhere in the astral dimension! It sounded like a huge party was going on all around me. I could hear glasses clinking together, and enchanting music calling to me. I would listen to those voices, overlapping one another, all calling to me. I would make out some of what was being said, but there was so many voices it was difficult to make out what they were all saying to me. Sleeping was a very difficult task, and I would lay awake most of the night to have to go to school in the morning. I used to try to sleep with headphones blasting my favorite hard rock music to drown out the voices and noises. Another way I would try to distract myself was by singing the same song over and over in my head like a sort of mantra. What I describe above is just a tiny bit of my life growing up as a medium. This is my life, then and now. Although somewhat different as an adult. I am a medium and psychic and I love my job! I help so many people with the grieving process and I help with guidance about the future. Most people tell me, what I tell them during a psychic reading played out like a script, even if they had to wait a little longer then they wanted to wait. I will tell you what you NEED to hear, not what you WANT to hear. If I had a dollar, for every time a client said to me, “no, that’s not right”, “that can’t be”’ only for them to contact me later to tell me “you were right Karla”. I hear this all the time! I made this my life’s work and turned my gifts into a business, after many years of working as a graphic designer, I was persuaded by my wife to do this fulltime! So, with her support and help, I went forward and created a business, and I’ve been doing it for several years now and have helped many grieving parents, spouses and countless others with connecting to their loved ones all over the world. If you have been helped by me, you can thank Nicole “Nickie” my wife, because I would have never done this on my own! The thought never ONCE crossed my mind to do readings fulltime. I work with people all over the world, not only connecting them to their loved ones they have lost, but by seeing their future possibilities. I also do past life readings and am a Reiki Master in several different modalities of Reiki, and a Quantum Touch Practitioner. My journey continues and I will continue to do what I came here to do, to help, to teach, to raise the consciousness and vibration of the people, the planet and souls. I am a teacher AND a student. People who work in the spiritual sector can learn from one another. Everyone of us works in a different way, I don’t think any two mediums or psychics are the same, they may be similar but not the same. I am very physical when it comes to my mediumship, meaning I will physically feel if someone was shot, had a stroke, heart attack, hit by a car, whatever the case. You will most likely be drawn to the medium or psychic that will be able to read you best. Not all mediums and psychic are a good match with the client. For this reason, we need so many people doing this type of work! There is enough work to go around. Can a medium have an off day? Absolutely! Just like any other job! Be kind to your mediums and psychics! For more info on me, or to request a reading, visit my website, and follow me on social media!

In life, be a story teller


orn to an Italian mother and Spanish father, I was raised in New York, close to my mother’s family.  Learning about my father’s side from my Uncle was a gift, since they were scattered around the U.S. and Colombia. Though growing up my family never had much money, my father’s family In Colombia came from great wealth and social class. My great grandfather built enormous wealth during the 1890’s moving all kinds of goods up the Magdalena river to the capital, Bogota.  During the civil war of Colombia, my great grandfather aided the republican army and was given the title “ General”.  After that he was given a contract by the government to lay down railroad tracks and print papers for the government. My family started a College in a town called Facatativa. Today the university and plaza are named after my relative, Jorge Cifuentes Rubio. His wife, my great grandmother, Inez Perez was the niece of a Colombian President.        I grew up a typical kid, my time was occupied by skateboarding and studying martial arts. When I was 13, I formed a band with the son of Twisted Sister front man, Dee Snider. It was common to find Dee in my basement listening to us play. When I was 15, the band we formed was mentioned in People’s Magazine. Nearing the age of 16 I began studying Taoism, as my martial discipline of Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai and grappling were beginning to introduce me to meditation and inner development.  My music and art meant more to me than being popular. This mindset brought me to discover the Hardcore music scene; a worldwide, underground subculture of music and expression that had substance and depth in the music.  Our band had decided to remove our singer, and we merged our music and lyric style to embrace the new genre of Hardcore we had fallen in love with.      At 15 the band and I were playing weekly shows on Long Island and eventually NYC.  At 19, I would form another band, which would end up under a record label based in California. The band was featured in the Village Voice Magazine in NYC, as well as Zines and publications in Canada and around the U.S. I was with the band for two tours,  but would leave before they would go on to tour the world. Throughout my childhood I was brought to healers and visionaries such as Nancy Fowler in Conyers, GA. I experienced things I could not understand and now older, something spiritual in me was growing. I left the band to study under the guidance of Dr. Paul Daniele and the College of Metaphysical Studies. In my personal life I was always struggling with asthma, a poor immune system and allergies.  The martial arts of Bushido nurtured my growing interested in spiritual development.  I was welcomed to visit South Dakota by Egan Artichoker, a healer from the Rosebud Lakota Sioux Tribe. Through a family friend, he invited me to join in a vision quest and sun dance. Unable to attend, my conversations with Egan urged me to further myself with healing modalities. Natural healing studies would afford me the ability to volunteer my services for a free holistic clinic on Long Island.      A few years later I moved to Florida to become Director of Public relations for the College of Metaphysical studies. At this time I also became a student at Cortiva Institute of Massage. My massage training would take me to Thailand, where studied Thai  Yoga Massage. I was excited as I had missed a chance to train martial arts in Thailand when I studied Mande Muda under Pendekar Guru Besar, Herman Suwanda. This period of my life was heavily focused on inner development and mindfulness. I practiced veganism, raw food and mindful eating for 7 years and would eventually lecture on health and wellness in Florida and NY as a Certified Nutritional Counselor.       In the blink of an eye, it would seem, several years passed by. I helped deliver my three, healthy and beautiful daughters at home. I studied the Bradley Method to assist and understand the process of child birthing.  Studying Taijiquan and natural healing influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine, I started an organic community garden, at a friends farm “The Dancing Goat”, in Oldsmar, Florida. We operated for a short time, and I learned a lot about the patience and wisdom of nature, as well as permaculture and other sustainable practices.       Traditional arts and practices brought me to study the ancient art of Falconry ( hunting with birds of prey). The process of becoming a Falconer is long and takes dedication. I began studying under the friend of a relative who lived very close to me, but eventually let the practice go, as it was too time consuming.  My mentor and now friend would introduce me to Traditional archery and bow hunting, which would lead me to having a bow made by the family of the greatest bowyer and archer the world has ever known, Howard Hill.         My interest in nature, the outdoors and archery would bring me to move to Tennessee, where I lived in Appalachia for a short time. Hunting the mountains and living alongside the Watauga river would bring my imagination to burst wide open.  My time in this environment would bring me to publish a Children’s book,  study business leadership and begin my training in Heavy lifting.  Heavy lifting has become a great introduction into the importance of ritualism, and has become a religion for me. I follow the conjugate methods of Westside Barbell.        Continuously learning and interested in classical arts and skills, I soon became an apprentice to a master guitar maker.  I began learning to build Classical, Spanish acoustic guitars under a man named Juan, who revealed to me that he is the cousin of Jose Feliciano, known for the Christmas classic “ Feliz Navidad.”  My love for traditional crafts and ways of living would continue and bring me to study bladesmithing.  I have been a collector of swords, knives and have learned to use the Katana, Fencing foil, Golok, dagger, Jian, and various other blades. Now I was able to move metal and transfer the timeless skill of forging to create my own works.       I consider myself a catalyst. I help people unearth and forge their passions and understand the processes needed to create and attain goals. I currently practice Massage, provide coaching and creative writing and content services for the Tampa Bay area and beyond. Feel free to contact me.     


A.J. Starting in my youth with exposure to visionaries, medicine men and healers, I have now been a sharing metaphysics, philosophy and history for 15 years, as well as a Massage Therapy. Traditional archery, metalsmithing, heavy lifting, homeschooling, history, philosophy are some of my practices and passions. You can reach me at   #ma55170  AUGUST 2019

OWN it ! L

ast week while talking to a friend, she expressed many behaviors that her husband was doing that upset her. Everything in our conversation was about him. She had examples that justified her cause for discomfort and distress. While listening to her, I had a n AHA moment. I realized that the only to change yourself is acknowledging with honesty your part in the situation. You must OWN IT! Owning it means you are being 100% responsible for whatever is happening in your life. Any issue or problem in your life own it! Everyone is responsible for themselves and their life. There is no blame game in truth only in the world. You and your life situation will never change until you see the part you play in the circumstance. If you are in a relationship and your partner is not acting or loving you the way you want, take ownership. Take an honest look and see the part you are playing in the situation. Are you enabling the behavior? Acknowledging the situation and knowing the part you play, brings the awareness back to you. When you are being honest with yourself, you own

the experience, and can see the truth. Shifting the way, you are being, lets you to see the situation in a new way. The purpose of life experiences is what you know in them. Be open into the experience. When a tree goes through a storm, after the storm the energy goes into the roots. The tree knows where to put that energy. It goes right into where everything is weak. The roots of the tree in time become stormproof. The storm makes clear the weakness in the root system. It is not about the damage done; it is weakness shown. In your person in life, see from within what you more deeply know. And then, let your seeing open. As you stay in that seeing, your thinking opens. The seeing informs your thinking and as a result your mind opens. Your seeing begins to take on a new form in your thinking. As you let your seeing be expressed in your thinking, your perspective enhances and gets bigger. As a person in your life you not only think differently but you see things differently. You are now seeing at a much higher level of thought!
