Love Month

ebruary is here already. Time sure does fly! Did you make your monthly New Year’s Resolutions? How did you do? If you fell off track, remember, these are falls. Just dust yourself off and move forward. If you can make the time, do a selfinquiry by slowing down, breathing, observe and ask what just happened? Breathe and listen to the silence. You will have plenty of time to figure it out. Keep in mind to come from your heart, that is key. When you hear February, what is the first thing you think about? Is it Valentine’s Day, Presidents’ Day or is this a leap year? I’d like to invite you to look at February as the month of Love, (actually, every month or day can be filled with LOVE). During the month of February, let’s take a lot of vitamin L, the Vitamin of Love. Love is everything and that includes YOU! What does this mean? Well, taking care of YOU! That is loving and nurturing yourself. Many people might think that’s arrogance, selfish or you do not care about others. Actually, that’s a misconception! When you fill your heart with true self love, you are able to love others fully. Shakti Gawain said, “My primary relationship is with myself-all others are mirrors of it. As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the love and appreciation that I desire from others. If I am committed to myself and to living my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment. My willingness to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another. As I learn to love myself, I received the love I desire from others.” What does your mirror look like? Do you think of sweets more during February? Would you believe that February comes in 4th place for selling the most A couple months ago a friend shared the chocolate, however; the biggest chocolate sales is on February app CALM.

The Anti-Aging Body BY DR. CHRISTOPHER JACKSON, PHD, DOM

T

he conventional approach to treatment of disorders associated with aging tends to focus on treatment of symptoms, rather than correction of underlying causal factors. The issues of cognitive decline, muscular decline (sarcopenia), organ dysfunction and failure are of prime importance in the elderly. For example, as of 2010, the number of individuals afflicted with dementia was in excess of 24 million and is expected to double in 20 years.

Rev. Janet M. Reynolds Intuitive Counselor Certified Spirit Medium www.bluefeather.net janet@bluefeather.net 813-814-1601

Our bodies are amazingly complex and intricately tied to processes that are optimized toward a state of balance known as homeostasis. At least one of the mechanisms of damage that leads to effects we view as aging is oxidative damage. This damage is produced by free radicals that strip electrons from molecules throughout the human body. The free radicals result from exposure of human beings to a plethora of environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies resulting in a lack of antioxidants, and primarily from normal metabolic processes related to mitochondrial activity such as cellular respiration (particularly in the aging brain), damaging cell membrane lipids, DNA, and proteins in the brain and throughout the body.

Another mechanism is suboptimal functioning of the process of methylation that takes part in the creation of neurotransmitters, derivation of methionine from homocysteine, and production of cell membranes. A direct correlation between homocysteine levels and cognitive dysfunction has been demonstrated. Cardiovascular function is also negatively affected by elevated homocysteine levels, which may cause inflammatory processes that lead to pathology when elevated. Telomeres are involved in additional mechanisms of damage through shortening and eventual programmed cell death (cellular senescence). Aging is established partly by the lengths of telomeres, the base material at the end of DNA (chromosomes) that is involved in cellular replication. Telomere length shortens over time with each cycle of replication, reducing mitochondrial activity with each cycle, until the material is gone and cell death occurs. Telomere shortening is an effect that can be delayed through caloric restriction, thereby lengthening lifespan. In addition to delaying the shortening of telomeres it has been demonstrated that telomeres can be lengthened. Critically short telomeres and DNA damage can be repaired using natural (primarily herbal) substances in mice and in human tissue. Certain combinations of herbal medicines and other natural substances can help us stimulate stem cell regeneration that provides a supportive environment for telomere lengthening and anti-senescent cellular behavior. Therefore, this essential element of aging can be slowed and even reversed, leading us to the anti-aging body. ______________________

Seize Your Full Power to Self-Heal through Sound “Cymascope”,

By Luis Suarez

The Ancients knew it, and modern science has shown us that

vibrations affect matter in all ways, good and bad. Indeed we experience vibrations daily from many sources such as light, radio frequencies,, radiation, etc., but none more noticeable and quickly effectual to matter than sound. We react to sound either positively or negatively nearly instantaneously and often dramatically. Let’s take a journey into the ways of sound. How it really works and how it can be used for self-healing. In this article we present basic principles and some suggestions to easily self apply sound vibrations for healing. Historically, ancients observed that harmonious modal sounds calmed and soothe humans. For example the effects of sound in humans were well developed by early Buddhists. They noticed that metal bowls and bells with a particular pure resonance frequency could produce sounds and physical vibrations that interacted positively with individual primary chakras. Matching each chakra to a specific frequency would make a person feel peaceful. Buddhist realized not just self, but spaces, and all kingdoms of life were raised to peacefulness and better function. More peaceful and loving humans, better water and more crops. In more modern times we know of the Cymatic experiments. The word Cymatics is derived from the ancient Greek word “Cymatica”, meaning, “wave”. Think of Cymatics as the study of the visual effects of sounds on matter phenomena. Wikipedia states, “ In Cymatic experiments we can see the effects of sound on matter. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane is vibrated by the subject sound, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency. The apparatus employed can be simple, such as the Chinese spouting bowl, in which copper handles are rubbed and cause the copper bottom elements to vibrate. Another example is the so-called Cymascope.” We recommend you find in YouTube video examples of the Cymascope created patterns. Just type the word Cymatics or Cymascope and you will understand much. What is most powerful from these experiments is the realization that the effects of sounds on matter can be highly organizing and elaborately beautiful. What can be felt can also be seen. And we see that what was inert and disorganized can be quickly restructured into a beautiful pattern that is organized and actively alive.. This organizing character of certain pure sounds and/or harmonic constructions is remarkable. The subtle membranes or fluid matter of these experiment shows the patterns are nearly instantaneous in establishing perfect order.. The patterns can be simple, but are always harmonious and organize into sacred geometry Mandalas. In the case of an “OM”, a very complex Sri Yantra Mandala is created. In reality these patterns, shown here in two dimensions, are three-dimensional and beyond.

12

Female Voice Mandala OM, Sri Yantra Mandala Ponder about these visible experiments. If the sounds are producing beautiful mandalas in the fluids used in the experiments, what happens in our body when we are immersed in these sounds? Our body is composed of so many fluids; our glands all have very thin membranes capable of rapid response to vibration similar to the Cymatics experiment thin membranes. So what are such sounds doing to the cytoplasm fluid in our cells? What do they do to the thin membranes in the Pineal, Thyroid, Pituitary, etc.? Wonderful things we propose. The cells so subjected can be propelled to their innate state of heath and proper function. And similarly will our DNA, our blood, and all glands. We postulate from our observations, that the sound waves healing process starts with a cleaning, a getting rid of what has attached and needs to go. Then by the continuum stream of waves “good organizing energy” builds up. Each wave building up on the priors constructions. Cells get organized, from dysfunction to proper function. The energy of the specific sacred geometry pattern melds with cells. Yes, this will take longer if we have opposing forces active in our body, mind, and psyche complex. Our conflicted beliefs and fears are a factor, but do yield to repeated and frequent use of sound therapies. So try sound. With proper intention, and frequency let this steady process of healing build up. Want to try? Get a headphone, a smartphone, computer, or Ipad. Sit in a comfortable place with some privacy., Go to YouTube, search and play out loud “ Clear Energy & Bad Energy from House and Self, 417HZ Tibetan Bowls”. Do it for at least 8 minutes. Then put the headphones on, and choose and play at least 10 minutes of one of the following: 528Hz - Whole Body Regeneration - Full Body Healing | Emotional & Physical Healing 432Hz - The DEEPEST Healing | LET Go Of Fear & Inner Conflict 963Hz + 852Hz + 639Hz | Miracle Tones | Activate Pineal Gland | Open Third Eye | Heal Heart Chakra

Do this daily, and explore. And yes there are many more ways to use sound. ______________________________________ Luis Suarez is a co-Facilitator for the Metaphysical Meetup and Mindfulness Mondays.

Love for Everyone

T

Everyone wants it. Everyone looks for it. Everyone gives it.

his beautiful energy that sustains life is often misunderstood due to a lack of simply understanding ourselves. Love is unconditional! The moment conditions are placed on this life giving, life sustaining energy, it changes the energy within a person. A reservoir of negative emotions, which is the opposite of love, begins to fester. These negative emotions are then shared with others either intentionally or unintentionally. Take a break-up in a relationship for example; two months after the break up, we have convinced ourselves that we have healed. We try to logically examine everything our partner has done to hurt us or create conflict. We even share with our friends a biased version of the relationship. After convincing ourselves “it’s their loss,” we feel it is time to move on and start the process of “love” all over again. However, in most cases, we have not undergone the next level in healing. That level is unconditional love.

Unconditional love will allow us to embrace the entire journey and evolve with a deeper love for self. The relationship actually serves as a lesson to help teach a higher self-love. Our mind, body and spirit work as one in this process. It has nothing to do with the over-rated emotional aspect of love. Rather, it is the ability to analyze, not rationalize the relationship. To embrace and hold in place the beauty of the relationship and to let that beauty grow. This process will release the courage to see the journey for what it was; through an unbiased ‘third eye’ interpretation. The interpretation is from our higher self or the part of our spirit that is void of biased emotions. Remember, it is the emotional aspect that hinders unconditional love. Unconditional love is the essence of who we are. Our journey through life involves our mind, body and spirit, as one. Racing through life does not leave much room to connect as one. When we hear or talk about love, the mind, body and spirit are processed as separate. However, they are connected! When our mind is relaxed, our heart is calm, our body can rejuvenate and our spirit will heal. In order for this to happen, we need to consciously infuse the unconditional energy of love. The energy that lies at the heart of every matter…unconditionally. _________________________________________________________________________________________ Rasheedah Sharif, Master of Science, Wholistic Artist Rasheedah has over thirty years of professional and personal experience as an educator in the public and private sector.

Love Miracles

Love’s intent is to expand love itself, making for more beauty and oneness in the world of form. On this oneness path, you can see the unseen, know the unknown. The secrets of mysteries can be revealed as you choose to vibrate higher and choose your highest path. Then you can partake in the greater experiences, as witness to the ultimate of truths and make possible love-light miracles that materialize into real form. It is the truth that sets you free- knowing that there is no greater, no achievement more worthy than the return to the highest of truths, the Law of One- “There is only love.”

Self Love: You’re Doing It Wrong love noun An intense feeling of deep affection, or A great interest and pleasure in something. verb Feel a deep romantic or sexual attachment to (someone).

B

reaking down such an emotive word and looking at it from a purely linguistic angle really made me think about love. Current social media trends emphasize selflove; that we should accept ourselves as we are and that we are enough just as we are. Many influencers and even some brands are highlighting imperfections; showcasing wrinkles, cellulite and the odd stomach roll to publicize the normality of all these things that many people disassociate with celebrities and fitness fanatics. Often these posts proclaim self-love at the heart of their message, yet is this really self-love? I would argue that taking an unflattering picture and uploading it for the world to see echoes neither intense feelings of self-affection nor demonstrates an action that evokes great pleasure. So are these really examples of self-love, or are these examples of a trend to humanize the stigma of social media perfection? Self-love to me goes well beyond skin deep. Practicing self-love does not manifest in a selfie of me and my cellulite. I would argue self-love requires investment, both of time and resources, just like any other relationship. It is not a finite concept, there is no ‘end’ trophy nor sudden award that self-love has been reached; it is so much more intricately complex, fragile and turbulent than that. Self-love, I would argue, is harder to maintain that any other relationship. All of us have many, many different relationships we maintain on a daily basis; from spouses to family to colleagues to neighbors to people you are on ‘hello’ terms with, but have no idea of their name. Considering these relationships, how often are they tested? How often do you exhibit negative feelings towards these people? And how often do you show these negative feelings? Chances are, the more distant relationships are seldom, if ever tested and the relationships you hold more closely, probably a little more. And for every negative thought you have, I am sure most of these you just let go – you filter and decide which are worth a possible argument. With yourself, you don’t have that luxury. There is no filter. Anything negative, you hear it, you don’t get the chance to decide to let it go nor the opportunity to mitigate the effects with vocabulary choice or positive body language. The same is true for the positive aspects of a relationship; the highlights. Date night with a loved one, a surprise party for a colleague’s birthday or an extra large tip for the staff because you had a good day. How often do you devote that same level of positivity and that same level of

commitment to yourself? If we expend significant energy into our close relationships to keep the love alive, do we perhaps need to consider doing the same for ourselves? It might sound indulgent; narcissistic or even outright ridiculous, but think of when you are your best self. When are you at your best; the most loving, the happiest and the healthiest? Is it when you have told yourself you can’t do something throughout the day, lived with your chipped manicure even though it has been bothering you and sacrificed sleep to do an extra 2 hours work? I doubt it. Taking care of yourself and investing in yourself are fundamental; no successful person achieved their success without some self-love. At the heart of self-love is not an Instagram post showing a roll of fat, but a true understanding of how you think. I firmly believe that emotional intelligence is significantly more important than academic intelligence. My favorite children to teach were the ones who were in tune with the world around them; the ones who picked up on the nuances of human behavior and the ones who came into school each day determined. Ironically, lots of these children lacked significant confidence, which is partly why I loved teaching them so much. Not only were they receptive to the academic work I gave them, but they also blossomed in self-belief and self-love in the environment I established. I have no doubt that, of all the children I taught, these are the ones who will go onto live the happiest and most fulfilling lives. As cliché as it is, our thoughts really do dictate our actions. The necessity for self-love is paramount and it really needs to be defined as self-love. You need to practice intense feelings of deep affection towards yourself. Yes, this will manifest differently to when you practice that with others; but it still rings true. Instead of looking to social media and celebrities for assurance on your appearance, seek opportunities to understand yourself; you and how you operate. A fleeting image from an unflattering angle is not a demonstration of self-love; it is the latest form of defending the criticized world of the media. The best images of self-love I’ve seen are random snapshots of a night out with friends; images of people at Thanksgiving laughing whilst playing games and an opportune selfie because you liked how your hair looked. Self-love is not a state that needs verbally acknowledging; it manifests in your behaviour and really runs deep within.

SEPARATIVENESS, THE LESSON OF By Marguerite dar Boggia

What is meant by ‘Separativeness? The Tibetan Master, Djwhal Kuhl wrote Esoteric Healing

and many other books through His amanuensis, Alice A. Bailey, using mental telepathy. This is His picture. He said: “If you were to ask me what, in reality, lies behind all disease, all frustrations, error and lack of divine expression....I would say it was separativeness, which produces the major difficulties arising in the etheric body, plus the inability of the outer tangible form to respond adequately to the inner and subtler impulses.” The etheric body is a web of energy streams, of lines of force and of light. Its main objective is to vitalize and energize the physical body and thus INTEGRATE it into the energy body of the Earth and of the solar system. It is an integral part of the etheric body of the planetary Deity (Logos) and is therefore, related to all forms found within that body in any and all the kingdoms in nature. It is part of the substance of the universe, coordinated with planetary substance, and hence provides the scientific basis for unity.2 In the book “Light on the Path”3, the Master Hilarion says: “Kill out all sense of separateness. Do not fancy you can stand aside from the bad man. He is yourself, though in a less degree than your friend or your Master. But if you allow the idea of separateness from any evil thing or person to grow up within you, by doing so you create karma which will bind you to that thing or person till your soul recognizes that it cannot be isolated. Remember that the sin and shame of the world are your sin and shame, for you are part of it.” In past lives we have done things that were against the laws of the Cosmos. All are destined to develop spiritually and to return to their Source. Science is catching up to the Ageless Wisdom teachings, which proceeds from the Masters of the spiritual Hierarchy. Dr. Ervin Laszlo, in his book Science and the Akashic Field: An Integral Theory of Everything posits that “the universe, with all things in it, is a quasi-living, and a coherent whole. All things in it are connected.” 2a The first Postulate of Ageless Wisdom Teachings, is that there is one Boundless, Immutable Principle; one Absolute Reality which antecedes all manifested conditioned Being. It is beyond the range and reach of any human thought or expression.3 By separativeness the Masters mean that we do not realize that all life and energy is connected. That all souls are connected and are identical with the Oversoul. That this relationship between all souls and the Oversoul constitutes the basis for the scientific belief in Brotherhood. BROTHERHOOD is a fact in nature, not an ideal.3a The ancient Greeks, such as Pythagoras believed and the Ageless Wisdom teaches that there is ONE LIFE. That Deity is

16

within every atom. That atoms are the concrete manifestation of the Universal Energy. That invisible lives compose the atoms, and all creation.4 That every life, including a human being, is in fact a fragment of the UNIVERSAL MIND, or WORLD SOUL.5 They called every mathematical point in space a Monad6, a potential god, a consciousness center. It is indivisible. It is the life of the atom; while the atom itself is very divisible. In fact, every atom is doomed to incessant differentiation.7 It is these invisible lives of the Universal Energy that form the energies of the universe. All lives are of varying degrees of consciousnesses and qualities. Their names are numberless. It is the consciousness and the rate of vibration of the life that determines its point of development. Each life has its mission and work to perform. Just as in the body of a human being, each cell is part of a greater cell and/or organ and has its mission to perform. There are rivers of lives in the universe, that act as the blood stream does, in a human body. The Universe is a Living Organism. Paracelsus called the elemental lives that compose the air: Sylphs; the fire spirits, he called salamanders; the water, he called undines and those of the earth he called gnomes. The Agnichaitans are a higher grade of fire spirit, who form a vortex of fire when viewed on a large scale, such as in volcanoes and large destructive burnings. They are closely allied to a still more important group of devas (angels) who form the fiery envelope of the sun. The pranic elementals, are those minute fiery essences who have the ability to permeate the texture of the human body, of a tree, or of all that may be found in the human, vegetable and animal kingdoms, and who blend with the fires of the microcosmic stems. 8 In the future as we evolve and become controlled by our soul, instead of our personality, we will be able to control these elemental lives using the proper mantrams and sounds. Each of these elemental lives has as its goal to become a human being.9 All atoms, whether mineral, human, planetary, solar or galactic are in the process of BECOMING. The goal of a human being is to BECOME a god. The goal of a Lord of a solar system is to become a greater God. The sum total of the lives that make up a form or a vehicle, or a body, is an entity, a life. The entity of the dense physical body of the Earth, has no emotion, no mind, but it is latent within it. In the next solar cycle, when the Lord of the solar system reimbodies Itself, (reincarnates) this entity will continue with its development, as will every other entity. Perhaps, it might become an ETHERIC body of a planet. To the extent that we realize that there really is NO SEPARATION, that all Life is connected, that all Souls are connected, that we are part of the One Life; then to that extent,

we may experience relative harmony, goodwill and brotherhood on Earth. When we harm another, (whether in thought or deed) we harm ourselves. When we bless and help another, we are blessing and helping ourselves and our brother. All Lives that form the energies of the universe, are fragments or sparks of the Universal Mind of God. Science resists the use of the word “god”. They reject its orthodox meaning; and they are correct in that regard. In the near future, all of this will change as they come to realize the Boundless, inconceivable Principle; as Space is Boundless. It is without beginning, without end and without form. _________________________________________

Universal Catastrophic Coverage: Will it T

Work?

Dr. James Veltmeyer is a prominent La Jolla physician voted “Top Doctor” in San Diego County in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017. Dr. Veltmeyer can be reached at dr.jamesveltmeyer@yahoo.com 18

he recent decision by Texas federal judge Reed O’Connor striking down the socalled “Affordable Care Act” ( aka “Obamacare” ) offers Washington policymakers of both parties a unique opportunity to revisit the entire healthcare debate and craft a new plan that will actually improve people’s lives while controlling costs. We should look back several decades for a possible solution. In 1971, Harvard Professor Martin Feldstein who later went on to be President Reagan’s chief economic adviser, proposed a possible way out of America’s seemingly intractable health care dilemma. It was called Universal Catastrophic Coverage (UCC ) and its objective was to provide all people with health care coverage when they really need it, in life-threatening emergencies or major bankruptcyinducing medical events, like cancer, heart disease, and newborns with genetic defects. UCC was not intended to cover the costs of routine or preventive care, like annual checkups, basic blood tests, sore throats, or runny noses. No less than the great University of Chicago and Nobel Prize-winning free market economist Milton Friedman endorsed UCC in 2004 in an article he wrote for the Hoover Institution. Under one version of Universal Catastrophic Coverage, all individuals not eligible for Medicare or Medicaid would receive a uniform, high-deductible catastrophic health insurance policy from a private company. The level of the deductible would be based on family income. The higher one’s income, the higher the deductible. UCC would protect people from financial ruin in case of a devastating health care event, while allowing individuals to purchase “supplemental” insurance ( such as Medicare recipients do ) to pay for routine medical expenses. They could also rely on their Health Savings Accounts or on a monthly membership in a direct primary care ( DPC ) provider practice. The estimated cost of such a universal catastrophic policy: about $2,000 a year or $160 per month. The vast majority of individuals would pay for this themselves, potentially using savings from the elimination of employer-paid coverage and higher wages. Those who cannot afford this amount would receive a voucher from the government to pay for it. Membership in a DPC practice would permit individuals to contract with a direct primary care physician of their choice for a low monthly fee to access basic medical care, including 24/7 access to the doctor through unlimited office visits, e-mail and text, lab tests, x-rays, and even some medications. There would be no copays or deductibles. The monthly fees might vary, but are normally in the range of $50 to $100 per month per patient. Obviously, older patients who need to see their doctor more often would be charged at the higher end of that scale and younger people at the lower end. Children are even less, sometimes as low as $10 or $20 per month. Patients seeing their direct primary care provider on a regular basis ( as there is no per office visit charge but only the monthly fee ) are less likely to be hospitalized, have surgeries or be admitted to the ER. Doctors are free to spend additional time with their patients FEBRUARY 2019

as they are not burdened with answering to insurance companies or filling out reams of paperwork. While anyone can see that the direct primary care model is highly affordable, does the same hold true of Universal Catastrophic Coverage? The answer is yes, according to a study by Kip Hagopian and Dana Goldman published in National Affairs. Their analysis indicated that their version of UCC would cost about half as much as Obamacare is expected to cost over ten years ( $950 billion versus $1.8 trillion under Obamacare ). Obamacare exploded the cost of health insurance by imposing massive regulations and requirements on insurers to offer coverage most people did not want or need ( i.e., single unmarried men required to buy maternity or gynecological coverage, etc. ). UCC and direct primary care end that by creating a system where catastrophic health insurance works hand-in-hand with a direct-payer model for routine and preventive medical expenses without breaking the bank. In some ways, it is similar to the much-praised health care system in Switzerland. Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act virtually eliminated the option of catastrophic insurance for anyone over thirty years of age, which is akin to eliminating fire insurance for your home. The pricetag of UCC would be paid for by eliminating the massive $250 billion tax subsidy for mostly large employers who supply employerpaid insurance. UCC and direct-payer working in tandem could largely supplant work-based insurance and allow wages and salaries to increase instead, while freeing employees from the chains of staying in jobs they dislike just to receive the health benefits. Employers would also see the costly burden of providing and administering health insurance lifted from their shoulders. The entire system of employer-paid health insurance ( tracing back to Bismarck’s Germany in the 19th century ) has served as a powerful disincentive for individuals to be personally responsible for their own medical needs – leading to overconsumption of high-priced services, such as the ER and hospitals for care that could be performed less expensively in a direct primary care physician’s office, for example. The beauty of Universal Catastrophic Coverage is that it returns insurance to its original purpose: protecting us in the case something PHONE: 813-501-4894

cataclysmic happens. The beauty of the direct primary care model is that it provides for all our other basic medical needs at a low, monthly fee which can be accessed by both Medicare and Medicaid patients as well. The massive costs that physicians now bear for administrative, billing, coding and the rest will be drastically diminished as the role of health insurance companies will be carefully confined and corralled, no longer reaching out to interfere with medical decisions or line their own pockets. Imagine the cost of your entire health care plan for $200 to $300 a month. It’s time for Health Care by the People and for the People now!

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places? “What you seek is seeking you...Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Rumi Are there any beliefs hanging out in the shadows of your mind that are tied to thoughts that you are not “love-able” (able to love or be loved)? If there are, it is a lie. You were not born with those beliefs—someone else planted them in your subconscious mind after you arrived here and over time those false beliefs became a barrier between who you think you are and who you really are. The “who” you really are was with you at birth and still is in this sacred moment—and that “who” is quite love-able. Who you really are is the essence and offspring of Infinite Love that has personalized Itself in and as you—and It lies in smiling repose, waiting for you to pull away the shroud of false beliefs that may have you scampering around, looking for love in “all the wrong places.” While this may be “Love Month”, I am not referring just to romantic love. The Greeks had several different names for “Love” depending on the context in which it was being used. Eros, Philia, common. Be it erotic love, brotherly love, or the love of and for God that passes through us this day, may we know that Love is always the cure that heals our deepest wounds and opens our hearts to Life. Irrespective of the question, Love is always the answer. To quote the mystic Rumi once more, “Love is the cure, for your pain will keep giving birth to more pain until your eyes constantly exhale love as effortlessly as your body yields its scent.” Regardless of whether you are in a relationship with a significant other or not, you are still in a very important relationship; the one you are having with yourself. Therefore, this is a day to celebrate and honor the Principle of Love in action in every area of your life. It is everyone’s job to be sure they are mindful in removing any barriers they may have erected between themselves and Love’s presence and the first place to look is at our beliefs. If love appears to be missing in action in your life today or it is just not quite as present and accounted for as you might like, consider taking Rumi’s admonition seriously: What you seek is seeking you and has been since the day you were born. The practice is to slow down so it can catch up with you. Discover it within first and trust that the law of attraction will do its part. Know that love will show up in your life reflecting Itself perfectly wherever and whenever it needs to when you have first removed any barriers that may have been erected, consciously or otherwise. “As within, so without,” is the principle that honors us as we first honor it. THE TAKEAWAY: Love really IS looking for you. If you go and look into the mirror right now with a willingness to love and be loved, you’ll see it staring right back at you. Today, may we each marinate ourselves in the energy of Love and allow it to ooze through our very pores. Whether we are in a relationship with a “significant other” or not, we are always in a relationship with the Divine, therefore Love is still present in us and all around us—we are swimming in Its essence. In other words, today would be a great day to simply “Be” in Love. Take a moment to pause right now and breathe into this awareness. This alone will make this world a better place.

Back to Wholeness Mind, Body and Spirit BY TERRI CABRAL

FEBRUARY 2019

Tampa Bay Wellness


We

must look at ourselves as a complete being. Mind, body and spirit are all connected and anytime that one is not being fed mentally, physically or spiritually we will end up with dis-harmony which creates disease. Our thoughts create our emotions and the negative emotions, traumas and not so positive life experiences create our physiology and disease in our cells. We have ability to heal, our bodies are a genius and complex machine that was very well thought of. We are amazing human beings starting to awaken to our true Divine selves and understanding our true potential. When we feed the mind with positive intention and possibilities our body flows with radiant light and our cells get energized. It has been document by doctors that serious diseases have simply disappeared in patients without explanation, other than maybe an increase in faith and positive thinking. This starts the mind into a shift that can create a different frequency in the body and along with other alternative healings such as sound frequency, chakra balancing, healthy organic eating, chanting, yoga, theta, affirmations, energy healing, etc. we are able to change the frequency of the body and aligning to a higher vibration as it should be. Disease is an unbalanced body crying out for help. We are in times when so much is possible and available for alternative practices, but we must be in tune with our own frequency and our environment also understand that it is up to us to take control of what no longer serves us for highest in best. It is time to detach from toxins that are causing great sickness. Toxic people are also something to look at how much you invest in these relationships. Food has frequency the colorful and fresh vegetables have a higher frequency therefore it energizes the body, a healthy grass- fed protein is healthier than other proteins, water is important to the body and as simple as it sounds there are many people still drinking soda and juices that are full of sugar. Exercise, fresh air and plenty of rest creates balance as our ancestors easily understood. Simplicity is best, we create our own chaos and live life out of balance. I understand this very well, I literally collapsed so I could be showed that there is a better way, my life was out of balanced and I was not listening to my body or feeding my soul. Many of you are in this same

position today, I urge you to listen so that a beautiful path can unfold, there is a greater plan for your life! If you are under stress learn to meditate, if you don’t have five minutes to meditate that’s when you need to meditate for ten minutes. Meditation is stress reducing, you will have more clarity and sleep better. Some schools are not teaching meditation and the results are more focused children, better grades and less anxiety they are more centered. When you are centered and grounded you breathe easier and the answers come to you, you create a flow of peace. If you have a child that has challenges focusing teach your child meditation, you will be surprised with the results, teach them to focus only on their breathing. We were raised in a society of belief systems that created some unbalanced education and these ideas have geared us to total disconnection with whom we were meant to be. It is time to connect within, our ancestors were much better at living a healthier life, they planted their food and lived off the earth without adding pesticides and other sprays that are killing us, we no longer know where our food is coming from and constantly hear recalls because of contamination, gluten sensitivities are a big problem now along with all kinds of immune system diseases that are showing up without a clue. Are you willing to take your health, happiness and peace into your own hands? Listen to your body it will give you signs, slow down. When you are tired rest, drink water dehydration can cause brain fog, tiredness and many other symptoms. You need water to cleanse and flush out toxins!

Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th

April 20th – May 20th

July 23 – August 22

Look around and evaluate all that you currently possess. Chances are you could lighten your inventory by at least 20%. Be mindful that simplifying your space can serve you well over the coming times. Use wisely what you have available and realize it is likely more than you need. Learning to use what you have is a skill. You do not need “more” to move ahead.

Allowing vulnerability and admitting there are some elements that lack clarity and need further development is key to your success. Release all that create distraction and focus on homing key ideas. Much can be gained eventually as projects unfold. Materialize.

PISCES

GEMINI

Feb. 19th – March 20th

May 21st– June 20th

Merging within and experiencing a greater sense of wholeness is part of your ongoing theme for 2019. Be patient and listen to your inner guidance relative to routine and attitude. Music is a key ally for you. It can be important to regularly listen to that which uplifts you.

There is a deep sanctuary that dwells within you. Leave worries to others, make no mountains out of molehills and just accept what IS. Follow your heart and leave the head battles behind. You know what to do and probably have known for a long time. Now, the time has come to act upon it. Leave no stone unexamined for they will be used to make a whole new foundation.

It is time to practice your inner authority. Pay attention to your inner nudges and body messages. Take charge of your emotions and redirect your focus. Blessings come from the use of your creativity coupled with the cultivation and commitment to a joyous spirit.

SCORPIO October 23 to November 21 Guidance is abundant over the coming months as you gain new potential for a deeper vision. Cultivating inner authority is required letting go of grievances and healing any old wounds that can be healed. The rest let go. New relationships, ideas and projects will be coming to you over the coming years. Get ready!

VIRGO

SAGITTARIUS

August 23 to September 22

Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st

Be aware of the purpose behind all that you do. It becomes more important to build inner awareness and authority as you meet intensified situations in the outer world. Be mindful to be of service but never servile. Take stock of what else you can do to assist those in need.

Greater change is on the way as you encounter increased synchronicity within your daily affairs and if you pay attention. Sometimes the seeds of the biggest trees have yet to planted. This is what presents itself to you now as you experience a seeding of new abundance and potential.

Trust in Yourself- yet be open to counsel as needed. Moving forward feels natural to you. But impulsivity must also be curtailed as you allow timing to also have a place in your plans for the New Year. Waste not, want not should be a key mantra as you also let go of any anxiety about how it will all unfold. Embrace the mistakes as much as the successes.

Seize a new day as you continue on your path. You are crossing bridges from a past that is no longer relevant to a future that is full of potential. Do not waste time on dwelling on what was. Think more of your life in conception terms as you move into the now. What can you give birth to? The time is now to begin making headway.

The concept of commitment is ever more important as you go deeper into 2019. Ideally, much has been gained from the challenges you encountered in previous month. Balance what is left undone with your need for reflection and silence. Be very conscious of how you express yourself to others. Misunderstandings can occur.

Sustenance is important. Pay attention to what you feed your body and spirit. Spend some time in introspection as you also examine your key relationships and the support they provide…or not. Shore up your reserves in energy and prioritize your time.

Color

what we need currently. Just like some part of me knew I needed blue frequencies to raise the energy in my throat chakra in order to be more balanced and speak my truth. I also came to find out that there was a reason that my least favorite color was yellow. The color yellow can be used to increase energy in the solar plexus chakra, which is linked to analytical thinking and the mind, well, I am always in my head and certainly don’t need to think any more than I already do. Here is the rundown on how the frequencies of certain colors effect us and can be used in our own personal journeys. Red, which vibrates the same as our Root chakra, is for working on groundedness and tribal or family issues, its also a power color and can make one bolder. Orange, which vibrates the same as our Spleen chakra, is for increased creativity, stuck emotions and feelings . Yellow which vibrates the same as our Solar plexus chakra, is for mind power, analytical thinking and memory. Green which vibrates the same as our Heart chakra, is for giving and receiving love and becoming more heart centered. Blue vibrates the same as our Throat chakra

is all around us and can have a profound and amazing effect on our body, mind and spirit. As we move forward in this month of new beginnings and fresh starts, we can use color as a tool for wholeness and well being. Just like surrounding ourselves with the people that we love and most resonate with, lets take color with us on our magical self-healing journey. When I was just learning about chakras, years ago, I learned that “chakra” was a Sanskrit word that meant “spinning wheel” and that we had 7 major chakras within our energetic field. Also I learned that each spinning wheel or “energy vortex” governs a part of our physical body as well. I had my chakras read by a scientific software application, called a Bio Pulsar, made in Germany that uses Bio-feedback. It measured the energy in each “spinning energy center” and I was told it was never wrong because it was based in science. I was intrigued, because I am very left brained and this being scientific was right up my alley. No smoke and mirrors here.

Transform Your Life wi th Color

The interrupter explained each of the 7energetic numbers to me, and all was good except one problem area, my throat chakra. My throat chakra energy was pretty low and so I was given some interesting homework. It seems that each chakra vibrates and has its own frequency, as does everything in the universe. The throat chakra vibrates like the color blue, and so the color blue effects this chakra, and can increase its energy, or strengthen it so to speak.. So my homework was to go home and for a week, wear blue clothes, eat blue food, use blue stones and think about the color blue, another words, immerse myself in all things blue. Surprisingly when I went home and opened my closet, I realized that I had a ton of blue clothes already and actually blue was my favorite color “coincidentally.” So I did my homework and went back a week later and was retested by the same equipment. My throat chakra energy had increased substantially. This little experiment made a believer out of me. I eventually became a chakra and aura interrupter with this software myself, and have seen hundreds of similar results using color as a “therapy” to balance ones chakras and increase energy to the physical body. I have come to believe we intuitively pick what we wear, eat, drink, and the colors we surround ourselves with to balance or “self-heal” exactly

and is for speaking our truth and strengthening willpower. Turquoise, a combination of heart (green) and throat (blue) is for speaking our truth from our heart. Indigo, vibrates the same as our Brow chakra and is for increasing intuition, and our knowingness. Violet, vibrates the same as our Crown chakra, is for increasing our connection to our Divinity and relationship to our higher power. So start out by noticing what your favorite colors are, these could indicate what you need vibrationally. Also now that you know how color effects us, you can use “color” as a therapy to work on your self, if you so choose. If you would like to experience this type of scientific energetic reading, using this same software, it is available at The Zen Zone Experience in Oldsmar Florida. _____________________________________________________

Love as the Essence of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy

H

BY MATTHEW BROWNSTEIN, CIHT

ealth is more than just a lack of disease. Health is a state of heart and mind that radiates out throughout our entire body and into our entire life. Health is not merely a lack of something, yet rather it can be considered as an abundance of what we all truly want. When our hearts our closed, we feel sad, depressed, blocked, confused and alone. When the heart is open and clear, we feel peaceful, loving and joyful. It is undeniable that this state of being – call it health – will positively influence every area of our life and will radiate out into our relationships and into the world around us.

“The heart is the root of the mind.” Whatever the heart is feeling, the mind will talk about. In Interpersonal Hypnotherapy, we associate the heart with the subconscious mind, and the voice we hear in our heads with the conscious mind. When the subconscious mind (heart) is upset, then the conscious mind is not at peace. A Course in Miracles states that “Peace is Health.” However, without bringing the heart to a state of peace, joy and love, the conscious mind will always try to find ways to make this emotional part feel better. It becomes a compulsive cycle of conscious thinking to find ways to discover love outside of ourselves as motivated by an already disturbed heart. To restore health and well-being, we must learn to restore a sense of love to the heart of our being – also known as the subconscious mind, for “all illness is some form of external seeking.” 26

In Interpersonal Hypnotherapy, we honor the sacred nature of all transformational relationships, and we understand that we do not live in isolation. On the human level, people are social creatures, yet beyond that, on the spiritual level, we are all interconnected and in this model, hearts and minds are joined. This means that while we do need to find love within ourselves, we cannot feel at peace while the relationships in our lives and within our deep inner minds are not healthy. The real work then becomes an opening of the heart, a forgiving of all that causes us upset, and a release of sadness, anger, guilt and fear into that which truly brings harmony to body, mind, spirit, relationships and to the world at large. Hypnotherapy has a profound ability to access these deeper parts of our being that are not at peace. We can tap into the subconscious mind and turn fear into love, anger into peace, and sadness into pure joy. We are only a belief system away from bliss, and to the extent that we are willing, from letting go of our upsets and allowing our bodies and our lives to return to balance. The real essence of the work then is rooted in a deep and ongoing process of forgiveness, which releases old perceptions, and allows us to see things differently. There is always another way of looking at the world. We can see through eyes rooted in fear and judgment, or we can see through eyes rooted in love and kindness. The ripple effects on our bodies and on our lives are undeniable, and countless scientific studies now support these very simple and ancient principles. We all need to do this for ourselves, for our families and for our world, yet many of us feel a calling to do this professionally. There are so many people who are dissatisfied with their current careers, and want to be able to think and speak more openly about healing, love, spirituality and personal and global transformation. To be your own boss, to make your own hours and to help return people to health and well-being through an open heart rooted in love is the real essence of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy. We honor all paths that do this beautiful work, and invite all those who want to be part of the solution to take actions that lead to inner and outer change by healing the heart to heal the mind to heal the body, and to help heal our world. _____________________________________________________ Matthew Jason Brownstein, CIHt, is the CEO of Anahat Education Group, Inc., the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute of Interpersonal Hypnotherapy, and is the President of the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists.

|| RELATIONSHIPS ||

O

Swipe Right, Swipe Left…

nline dating as a 44 year old man gave me a unique window into the modern dynamics between men and women, how attraction works, and even led me to question the role of marriage if one is past the age of raising a family. I went from dating too many women (quantity) to searching for specific characteristics and dating less, but with people who shared my values (quality). My most profound realization was that if I was going to find someone amazing to share my life with, I would have to up MY game and work on the parts of my life that weren’t as good as they could be. I had been paying off debt for a long time, but I doubled down and lived on HALF of my income in 2018. My credit score went above 800! No one wants to date someone with messy finances. Being broke is not attractive! As a man I realized that focusing on my purpose and mission in life is far more attractive than making dating my focus. I’m a shareholder in Tampa Bay Solar, so I focused on building our sales team up to $1 million per month in sales. As our team grew I invested time in helping others find success, something I find deeply satisfying on a spiritual level. I started to do yoga and practice intermittent fasting, not only for longevity, but also for weight loss. I started spending more time in the pool, swimming laps. I had neglected my health after my marriage ended, so health became my hobby and I began to slim down and feel better. People date for certain reasons, some folks just date to

see “what they can get” from a partner either financially or sexually. I went in the opposite direction, and began intentionally looking for long term companionship, someone that I could really get to know over a lifetime. Looking at relationships from a selfish (or scarcity) perspective is transactional, real love comes from a place of abundance within ourselves. The more you love others the more that love multiplies and comes back to you, so I started to approach every date from the viewpoint of “How can I add value to this other person, how can I show them a nice time?” I had been reading up on leadership and I decided to adopt a personal policy of radical character and integrity. In doing this I realized that I could only date someone if they also held integrity and character as a core virtue. This meant that my pool of potential dates was much more limited, but I no longer wasted time with a woman of poor character or dicey integrity. I would rather be single for a longer period of time, yet ultimately find someone of high quality and character to spend my life with. Of course, this has just been my experience out there in the dating universe of Tampa Bay, if you’re single I would encourage you to get out there, have a glass of wine with people you find interesting and also look inward to see what you can work on yourself. If you happen to be single for a year or two use that time to better your health, your finances, your faith. I’m still single, but as we launch into 2019 I’m optimistic about eventually finding the right person in my life, while also understanding that the right person won’t come along until the right time!

s a child, did you play hide and seek? The game hide invites players to conceal themselves in a place to be found by the seekers. The one player tagged as “it” closes their eyes and counts to ten while the other players hide. The designated “it” runs and looks everywhere, seeking the other players. In the hide and seek game in life, you are it. You are the one you have been hiding from and seeking your whole life! The “it” is deeper than the self that you are used to. The “it” is the deeper level you as a being and the real you. Letting your heart be open and soft, means not having any insulation or protection. You are being present without any kind of story or separation of dislike. You are present in pressure and difficulty without converting that to pain. When difficulty is converted into personal pain in the midst of life, you become hidden in yourself. When you become hidden in yourself, the hiding blocks what is deeper within. Stories are personal guards that keep personal existence confined to the surface. When you live in your stories, you protect yourself from the truth of who you really are. Your identity becomes your story. You engage in life but through the lens of personal stories of dislike and pain. If you are not being insulated in yourself by forms and structures and polarized in yourself with like and dislike, then you are meeting life from what is deep within all the way through the surface. And, now in that you are available.

Rewriting Your Love Story By Arielle Giordano Rewriting your love story means being present in your heart allowing you to be intimate with a deeper you. Being in your heart is the door to your being and the real you. Rewriting you love story means releasing fear and past stories about relationships. Free to be free and open to everything in your life. When you no longer draw on past conclusions without perceived safety of imported stories, you make yourself accessible to another. Your heart is open and accessible. Rewrite your love story in your heart and begin to know and love you. This is a way of being of vulnerability being open and soft in your heart. Let go of drawing past conclusions. Enjoy and engage moving in your heart and vulnerability rather than the safety net of stories. Let your heart open to connect on deeper levels. Human beings are innately designed to be social and with people. Your physical and emotional health is directly related to your social ability and the quality of your relationships. Love and enjoy your connections to family and friends. Bonding with others contributes to a healthy you in 2019! _______________________________________________ Arielle Giordano Author, Speaker, Counselor & Coach, Instructor.

Annuals/Bedding plants: Plants that perform better in the cooler months include petunia, pansy, verbena, dianthus, strawflower, and lobelia. Protect from frosts and freezing temperatures. Bulbs: Many bulbs can be planted now. Provide adequate water for establishment and protect from cold weather with mulch. Some examples include Amazon lily, crinum, and agapanthus. Azaleas: With azaleas in full bloom this month, now is a great time to select varieties to add to the landscape.

• Prune off dead blooms and seeds to encourage new flowers. • Monitor for insects and disease. INFORMATION PROVIDED BY UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA IFAS EXTENSION, FLORIDA GARDENING.

Palms: Give cold-damaged palms proper care to encourage their recovery. Citrus: Check citrus trees for scab disease. Apply a copper fungicide when new leaves appear and again when two-thirds of the flower blossoms have fallen. Roses: Prune roses this month to remove damaged canes and improve the overall form. After pruning, fertilize and apply a fresh layer of mulch. Blooming will begin 8–9 weeks after pruning.

• Adjust irrigation based on rainfall.
