Mentorship: How My Mind Was Changed

I

BY NIA KAYE

never really bought into mentors, having always perceived a mentor as a person with a very rigid perspective who prescribed, potentially even dictated, how you should conduct yourself in any given situation. Mentors aren’t something readily discussed in the UK, or, at least, they weren’t discussed when I was at my most impressionable age, so perhaps my negative perception was a misinformed cultural bias, too far removed from reality. If you asked me today if I have a mentor, I would probably answer that there are a couple of people in my life who really do look out for me; both in terms of my well-being but also my development...so yes, I guess I do have a couple. Perhaps another reason I potentially viewed a mentor as limiting was that I possibly just hadn’t met the right person when I came to that conclusion. Who would think that I would meet such an influential person in my life at the gym?! Probably not many people.  He was in fact one of the first people I met and constantly came into contact with once I emigrated. Every time I saw him in the gym, he made a determined effort to go beyond the generic neighborly greetings and pursue far more personal levels of conversation. Funnily enough, it turns out he was one of the first people who engaged my Mum in regular conversation when she first emigrated too. Oh, and he played tennis with my brother growing up whenever he wanted someone to practice with. From almost daily chatter, he learned of my unhappiness as a teacher and sought to sell me on a career change; working in sales at the same company he worked for. He highlighted attributes of mine that he thought would align well with that career and said it would be a great fit. With his general persona and clear happiness with his career and company, it did begin to convince me that this might be a viable alternative to my current teaching misery. To cut a long story short, you could say the rest is history...I have been working at that same company for almost 3 years now. While I have been working at the same company, I have had ups and downs, like anything, but I have also had some promotions along with big successes. My biggest success to date was achieved working with him, and I have never been prouder of something I helped accomplish in my career. It was made infinitely sweeter by the fact it was achieved with him.  We continue to work out at the same gym and we actually sit within paper airplane throwing distance in the office, so actually, I probably have more in-person daily interaction with him than anyone else in my life. He is more than a neighbor or a colleague to me, he is like a second father. Just like a Father, his role in my life is not set within strict parameters as I perceived mentors to be, but it ebbs and flows...I just know he is always there and always wanting what is best for me whatever that may be. I have verbally thanked him many times and also expressed how I feel, but I don’t think I can ever really truly thank him. I have no doubt that without his presence in my life and investment in me, my life today would look wholly different. ________________________________________________________________________________________

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

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

Fulfilling

Father’s

Energy

I

do not remember a lot of great memories of my father. He passed 38 years ago and was not present a lot during my childhood years. The memories of my dad were not as special as maybe some of you. I am sure others may have experienced the same feeling I had. My dad worked a lot and was not available, if he was I surely do not recall. He was an introvert and was an excellent provider. He was the only dentist I knew that made house calls! My dad was a silent father that allowed my mom to run the show or maybe she was the dominant personality. Those topics were not talked about when I was growing up in the 1950-1960’s. Yes, the baby-boomer generation. I recall the TV show, Father Knows Best and families actually followed that example. Wow, things have changed! What does Father’s Day mean? When I was growing up, it was to honor our birth Father. He was the protector, provider, action taking figure of the home…the Boss. Today, Father’s Day has a broader perspective. One can honor their birth father, step-dad, an uncle or/and a male figure that was there for you. It is the energy of the male that stands out today. I was angry for many years with my dad because he was not there for me. He was always there for my older sister and twin brother. Yet, I do remember some special times driving into the office going a specific way because of this dip in the

10

road and making his funny sound and say “Gosh”. It still makes me smile. His patients enjoyed us coming to the office to help out as the receptionist or to assist him. Back then it was “cute” to see your kids come help out at the office. I saw how he was so nurturing to his patients, young and old. As I reflect on his life (of what I knew), it must have been difficult growing up with parents coming over from Europe and starting all over again. Living in a world of black and white and predominantly Christian. They were a successful Jewish family in Detroit. To my surprise my dad and uncle had a nanny. Little facts started to surface in my later years and realized that my dad was always ahead of his times in his profession of dentistry. However, I did not see his courage in the family domain, as I did in his profession. He was not very well supported at home or by surrounding dentists. Yet, he held his ground and continued his progressive practice. In his own way, he left his imprint on myself and siblings. My twin and I are in holistic health always adding new and interesting approaches to our practices and my sister, a leader in her career. Sometimes we do not always see what our parents give us until we mature in life. I look back and see the courage he had, yet, stifled in the family life.

BE THE CHANGE!

CHANNELED ACCELERATED REGRESSION HEALING Alchemist Healing - Eliminate traumas and un-desired presences from many lifetimes which still influence our present and future. Teletransportaion healing is a form of regression therapy, which does not use hyponosis, in which the healer moves from one dimension to the other. It can also be applied to homes and land.

Each generation has its challenges and as they get worked out, the next generation benefits from it. My dad’s past memories of hurt, anger and abandonment turned into blessings that I learned from. It became forgiveness, unconditional love and an inner strength that I feel. My dad did the best he knew how with his belief system. I am forever grateful for him. So, a tidbit of information. Where does Father’s Day come from? I was curious about Father’s Day. In my research, I found different stories, however, the theme that was congruent throughout was about Sonora Smart Dood, the originator of Father’s Day. Her father was a civil war veteran and raised six children when his wife died during childbirth in rural Spokane, Washington. Sonora Smart Dood heard of Mother’s Day and because she had such respect and admiration for her father raising the family alone, she felt that father’s ought to be recognized as well. In Spokane, WA, the first Father’s Day was June 19,1909. It was not until 1966 that Father’s Day, was proclaimed a holiday under Lyndon Johnson’s presidency. However, it was President Nixon in 1972 that Father’s Day was officially a permanent holiday, when he signed it into a law.

Whose Truth Are You Living?

I

"Believe nothing. No matter where you read it, Or who said it, Unless it agrees with your own reason And your own common sense." ~ Buddha

wonder how many of us are basing our lives on someone else's truth? Many people take what has been given to them as "the way it is" and automatically live within the confines of that idea, never challenging that idea or looking at the possibilities that may lie beyond it. It requires courage to challenge and question the traditions and relative "truths" that, over the years (centuries), have been generationally passed down and blindly accepted. Whether we are talking politics, religion, race or any other area of our lives where we tend to simply accept the opinions of others without considering how

it really rests in our own hearts, Buddha's admonition is worth exploring.      Whose truth are you living? What truth has shaped the life you call your own today? Does it agree with your own reason and common sense, or is it based on someone else's? With conscious self inquiry you need go no further than your own mind for the answer because it's your truth that you are seeking, not another's, yes? Something to "reflect" upon.

Keeping Dogs E

Calm on July

4th

By Angela Ardolino

very summer, my dogs were a bit more anxious than usual. While my neighbors celebrated July 4th with fireworks, my beloved dogs, Odie, Nina, and Jolene would pace the house, stopping to shake and bark with each BOOM. As unique as my dogs are in their personalities, in noise anxiety, they are not alone. According to a 2015 study published in Applied Animal Behavior Science, Norwegian researchers found that dogs are more afraid of fireworks than they are of gunshots, thunderstorms, or heavy traffic. The study took into account 5,000 dogs (in 17 breeds) and asked their owners to rank their reaction to four noise stimuli: fireworks, gunshots, traffic, and thunderstorms; and of those, 21 percent of dogs showed “strong or very strong signs of being fearful” during fireworks. This was far greater than the 10 percent of dogs afraid of thunderstorms and the 14 percent of dogs afraid of gunshots. The study also found that fear of loud noises increases with age. And it isn’t just your dog who is scared, it is your cats, too. A 2010 study in New Zealand found that of the 3,527 pet owners surveyed (both dogs and cats), over 46 percent displayed a level of fear of fireworks “recognizable to their owners.” Despite their inclination to panic, your pet does not have to spend the coming weeks in fear. With a few simple precautions, Independence Day does not have to mean stress for your furry friends.

Keep Your Pet in a

Calm Environment

Your natural instinct may be to let your dog join you outside as you light the fireworks, but for an anxious dog, going outside during fireworks can trigger their fight or flight response. Don’t give your pet the opportunity to run away or get too close because they may not react the way they normally would when they are in panic-mode. Instead, take your dog out for a long walk earlier in the day, and then keep them inside in a calm, relaxing environment before the loud noises begin. The pet’s environment should remain as routine and normal as possible. Keep curtains or blinds closed to prevent dogs from becoming frightened by the bright lights and make sure that they have access to their favorite toys and comforting bedding. Treat your dog normally (a few extra good belly rubs won’t hurt) and make sure your dog has something to do—like playing with a special toy. Playing soft music can also help ease your dog’s fears as the fireworks get underway. Your dog will already be in a heightened state from all the extra stimuli, so try to keep them apart from guests and small children if you have company. Although they may normally love to mingle with your guests and play with children, the loud noises and fear-based responses may cause them to behave differently, which could result in extra stress for everyone.

Turn Your

Pup

into a

Burrito

Sometimes, the most helpful solutions are the most obvious ones. For example, wrapping your pet in something with weight or slight pressure creates a calming effect, according to a recent study examined in the Wall Street Journal. Just like weighted blankets help people with anxiety, creating a comfortable weighted shirt or swaddle can give the dog a sense of feeling grounded and calm, so long as they are still able to move around freely. You can find vests, like the ThunderShirt, at your local pet store. You can also save money by wrapping your pet’s chest in an ace bandage (but not too tight!) to create the same effect.

Try Holistic Remedies

There are natural remedies to alleviate the anxiousness your pets feel during fireworks. CBD products for pets can make a huge difference in reducing fear, stress, and anxiety. Full spectrum hemp CBD will interact with a pet’s endocannabinoid system and will tell your pets’ cells to stay calm, stopping the release of adrenaline hormones. For example, I give my pets CBD oil any time I hear a thunderstorm starting or 20 minutes before I know fireworks will begin. Instead of panting, pacing, or barking, they lie down and take a nap. CBD is also less harsh on your pet’s liver and kidneys than children’s Benadryl, which is often recommended for anxious pets. With CBD, your pet will not turn into a zombie and will not have any adverse reactions. Remember, no matter how stressed your pet is when the fireworks start, try to stay as calm as possible when you are around your dog. Getting frustrated and yelling at them to stop barking will not help. With a little preparation and a lot of patience, your dog will be able to rest easily this Independence Day.

Men Share aI Silence From the Author, A.J. - Starting in my youth with exposure to visionaries, medicine men and healers, I have now been a teacher of metaphysics, philosophy and history for 15 years, as well as a Massage Therapist.  I am a catalyst and have a passion to teach how discipline will always outlast motivation. I practice forging metal to remind myself that when we are put in fire and hit with hard blows, it can shape and refine us into something strong. I practice traditional archery to remain aware that in order to advance forward, we first have to be pulled back and let go in order to fly. My most constant ritual is heavy lifting, which helps me remember that as the weight gets heavier, it’s up to me to grow stronger. I believe in the warrior path of a strenuous life, I believe the only way to adapt is to never adapt, and I believe we grow under pressure. The obstacle that impedes the way, becomes the way. My journey so far has made me a father, husband, son and friend.  For inquiries about services I provide, please email ajgtampabay@ gmail.com

didn’t know until later in life that the art of masculinity is a vital practice to a man, and most importantly a father. Looking toward the divine masculine and awakening to its power is never an easy road. The challenge is in realizing that it is not supposed to be easy, nor should a man want it to be.      

“No man is more unhappy than he who never faces adversity, for he is not permitted to prove himself.” - Seneca   

   Men share a silence; it is a silence so loud it makes most people deaf to a man’s needs. This truth is not easily heard, but you find it written in works by philosophers, historians, teachers, even the bible. It is the truth that it is tough being a man. It is so tough that statistics sadly show many men fall away just by being a man. Growing up with a father is not always a guarantee that you will be guided, shown how to navigate the rough waters in life. And there will be rough waters. Not many young men are taken by the hand and told hard truths, truths that only time and experience could share. Truths such as: people may not always accept your talents, and you will fail many times in this life. The hard truth is that you can acquire everything you want in life and feel more alone than ever before. The truth that failure is part of succeeding, and what helped you succeed years ago may not work now. The truth that many times in life you’re going to get tired, you’re going to feel pain and you’re going to want to quit, but you must keep going. You may work, provide, give and still never feel enough. Until you learn that you are enough, that your effort is enough.      How could I give from my cup; how could I give my best to my children, to my family, if my cup is almost empty? I’m still learning to realize when my energy and focus is solely on things outside of myself, the externals. Especially because one of the only things in this life, which a man can control, is his focus. When focus is only on the externals: work, family, money, schedules, we lose ourselves, we lose autonomy. If we only think and worry about the externals, our perception of ourselves becomes distorted. We tend to believe that we are the results we get in life, that we are both the successes and failures that occur. We can begin to measure ourselves by the externals, and this is not a true self perspective. With a wrong view of ourselves, it is a matter of time before the inner self suffers under stressful conditions, until we physically, mentally and emotionally break down. Now we are forced to go inward. Pain draws our focus within, to finally get our attention so we can take care of ourselves. This pain should not last, posttraumatic stress needs to become post-traumatic growth. Many men get stuck in the pain, but we need to trasmutate pain into growth. The pain is a gift, and we must use the pain to push us to new levels. Butch Artichoker, a healer of the Lakota Sioux who began me on my path many years ago said in the book, “The Gift of Pain”,  “I’ve learned a long time ago that there is an emotional basis for our conditions, if we fail to look into the emotional cause of the problem, it can be difficult to heal the condition. “Since our thoughts guide our feelings about ourselves and the world, we have to realize we are building our lives with our thinking. As James Allen wrote; You are today JUNE 2019

where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. Circumstance does not make the man; it reveals him to himself.”      

“Your mind will take on the character of your most frequent thoughts; souls are dyed by thoughts.” - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations   

   With the strength and power of the masculine comes the enormous shadow it can cast. It is common for men to think about death often as they get older. It is common for a man to hold back panic until he is alone, so he can fall to his knees in the bathroom where no one can see him. The weight most men place on their backs is nothing short of the image of Atlas with the globe on his back. What I am going to say is counterintuitive, but we have to build a bigger back rather than seek to lighten the weight. We need to seek out the pressures in life. Out of worry and fear, men have written codes of living such as Bushido and Stoicism, which teach us to push through that fear and understand that our temporary state in this life is natural. So, don’t take every movement in your life personally. As a man, it can be understood what is needed by us to be brave, but as a father, it can be trickier. Justin O’Malley wrote, “A father is a man who has two or more souls to save or lose. This is because the presence of the father, the archetype of the father is the protector, the true patriarch, the spiritual pillar of our world.” It wasn’t until becoming a father that I felt I had something worth fighting for, something to live for, and something to die for. It was an overwhelming, protective and evolutionary drive, which no one had clearly conveyed to me. It made me feel vulnerable. It made me feel my mortality and put to test many of the philosophies and theories about strength, spirituality and love I had previously held. It brought about as it is taught in Taoism, “The dumping of knowledge”, where adopted ideas and concepts about myself and my reality were now to be applied.  If they couldn’t be applied to life right now, they would have to be scrapped. No matter how wonderful the concepts or ideas were. It is a time to no longer gather information about ourselves from outside of us, and to truly turn inward. There is a difference between conceptual knowledge and applied wisdom. Oh yes, it’s easy to say you love the ocean from the shore, just as it’s easy to be positive when things seem to go your way. I’ve always been a risk taker, an adventurer, but no one prepared me for the waters I was entering into as a father. A favorite proverb of mine states, “ Any port in a storm”, which means that we look to find anyway to survive, during tough times.  It is true that ships are safe in a harbor, but that is not what ships were built for.     

the soul, to realize that our external life is a reflection of internal development. The Odyssey brings forward the question, “Who is my father image?” Often men feel they do not know until the soul has returned with stories of adventure filled with love, risk, death, sex and triumph. Many men face rough waters as a way to draw out the inner character’s transformation. As Black Elk of the Oglala Sioux tells us, men had to endure ordeals designed to bring out the adult within. For the Oglala, the point was to push the young man so deeply that he experiences transformation. Many fathers can enter rough waters not realizing the obstacles they face are essential for growth, and part of who they are. They are opportunities to grow, drawn to us by the deeply emotional need to rise in our own power and enter a greater state of mind. Father, then, is ignited in a man by giving, securing and continuing his family and community.     

“Not every successful man is a good father, but every good father is a successful man.” - Robert Duvall   

   A father is the one whose wisdom is rooted in the ancestors, to our genetic builders who have laid the foundation of this life that we now pass on to our next of kin. This is the fatherhood of the soul which Jung called “Animus.” The Odyssey will serve a man in many ways, while this aspect of the father character journeys deeper within. It will serve a man to become familiar with uncertainty and draw out the father figure within, by daring to sail into the unknown. Fate is the sea we sail, filled with pleasures and dangers that are different to us all. We become a father to our own life as we traverse the waters. The deeper father figure begins to take root, as that animus transforms us and we start to realize we are the authority of our own selves, the arbiter of our fate. Through the Odyssey, and drawing out the father figure within, a man can realize that self-inherent freedom comes from within.      

“I wish to preach, not the doctrine of ignoble ease, but the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife; to preach that highest form of success which comes, not to the man who desires mere easy peace, but to the man who does not shrink from danger, from hardship, or from bitter toil, and who out of these wins the splendid ultimate triumph.”

- Theodore Roosevelt, The Strenuous Life, Essays and Addresses   

   To men:  The age we live in presents many challenges to men, some of which our predecessors did not face. Modernism and Technology dull the mind and overstimulate the senses. Never has there been such a battle in the hearts of men before, and the guiding father, warrior figure within needs to be awoken. I know many great men who face hard times, and the majority of “If a man knows not to which port he sails, no wind is favorable.” - Seneca   men suffer in silence. Your pain is a tool waiting to be utilized to    bring about great growth. As the masculine, we are the protectors Set Sail: For most men who enter fatherhood we begin and builders, but we are also the destroyers. Without guidance to look for a lead example to follow, of what a father is.  This and direction, without creative outlets and self-control, we can example becomes an amalgam of many different male figures sabotage even our long-made efforts and dreams. Remember, and influences. Every man seeks a father, without that deep discomfort and pain are part of the process of healing and father spirit, we are left with counterfeit fill ins, poor examples growing. Fire and pain burn away the old useless habits in us, of the father spirit. We can end up feeling lost in the woods while we rise from the ashes like a phoenix, to rebuild with our of our own hearts and minds. Eventually we begin to call masculine energy once more. Aut inveniam viam aut faciam! ( the woods adventure, as we become used to the scenery. There “I shall either find a way or make one.” ) The men and fathers is no better example written on this subject than the story of that have come before you speak to you from within. The lives Odysseus, in Homers Odyssey. Setting out to fight, conquer, and experiences of many men before you who have loved, lost, overcome and grow, Odysseus travels, yet he doesn’t really sacrificed, yearned and dreamed create the halls of your ancestors experience life. In truth, he is away from his life, spending that guide you to find the father within. Your effort is enough, time with sirens, going to the underworld and fighting you are not the failures and mistakes. Your soul is journeying monsters. A true Odyssey or adventure is not just about to bring out that power within you, which harnesses the having experiences. The true Odyssey of a father and a man is substances of life and creates form. Give no worry to tomorrow in exploring the deep felt, unpredictable places of our souls. or the afterlife.

Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th

Happiness is what you desire and now must understand that happiness is never a constant. Let old beliefs go about ideas of success and love. Seek to experiment with a greater balance between your work and personal life. Yield when you know it is in your best interests.

Vision along with inner knowing is becoming more sharpened and perceptive=so no more hiding. Instead, buckle up and plunge into living your life as never before. Greater self-discovery awaits along with other signs of abundance and fulfillment.

TAURUS

LEO

April 20th – May 20th Wisdom is the gift that awaits you. Decide to move forward, out of the past, old comfort zones, familiar places. No matter the age, the need is to loosen up and let go. Place what you value most in your pocket, discard the rest. This can sound impossible until you realize how little you really need. And that is your endpoint.

Dependability is what is needed most now. Understand that you still have about five more years of slow but steady transformation. Don’t get too comfortable. Your archetype has a tendency to project onto others what you are in need of most looking at within yourself. Others will be just fine without you. Turn your gaze inward now.

Lightness-a tall order for you but it is possible when you begin to realize that there is no bottom to your depth. See to rescue those aspects within yourself that you alone abandoned. Let the people go who need to go. You will swim better and see farther.

VIRGO

Solutions to the challenges of what life presents to you is what is called for. Knowing better is never enough. You must act on what your inner voice dictates. Stop scattering your attention and sharpen the focus to what really matters to you. The areas that matter are no more than four. What are they?

Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th

October 23 to November 21

Aaah…recognition is a double-edged sword. It is time to smarten up. You can never be satisfied fully by outside accolades or pleasing others. Life is not that shallow. A better solution is to just take time out and play. Learn, dance, drink and be merry. There is no one else really looking so live it up.

It is the unknown that calls to you now. Know that you won’t be satisfied until you pursue new goals and ideas. Life is speeding up, time goes ever faster. Make a commitment to clean of the inner glasses and choose one new idea to make real in your life. If it feels right, have no doubt. Just move forward.

Continuity is a beautiful thing — until it becomes too rigid and antiquated until there is no movement. Relax, take a deep breath and let down some inner defenses, kick some rules to the curb and limit the judgement. Decide how you would like to librate yourself. What do you need now?

A dose of inner love will nourish and support your soul. Seek both people and places that tend to create a feeling of peace within. Let go of tension and do not let others cares and worries weigh on you. Always include time out for yourself when you literally do nothing. Yes, you heard right—nothing.

Feb. 19th – March 20th

Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st Cheerfulness is your ally now. Difficulties will be resolved but it can take time. In other words, as planets shift, there can be gradual degrees of relief to whatever seems to be bolding your coat tails at the moment. Strive to catch the light rays in what is happening and trust in the process.

Whoo-hoo! Adventure calls as you release all the stops to your life and move forward with gusto and class. Creative projects are emerging from the fog and now you can truly follow your bliss. One more thing: Pick a new element to reveal within your work—others will notice.

expanded perspective and make the choices that lead to positive changes and transformations. As the heart center opens and connects more to the mind and emotions, there can be an expansion, a unification and letting go of separation, allowing more oneness within. As the masculine does the inner work, raising the vibrations, more of the divine masculine potentials begin to come into reality. The father role on the journey in the evolution of soul is to become more of the whole and complete divine masculine. In this important awakening time, honoring, reflecting, healing and unifying with the father energies and Father God are part of the process. Each person has the potential to awaken more to the higher consciousness that is part of the evolution of soul, to experience the oneness with all and to tap into the divine potential of realizing the divine masculine for men and the divine feminine for women. Also, for the advanced souls, it is the time to balance the divine masculine and divine feminine energies within to gain the self-sovereignty needed to manifest and fulfill their destinies in this evolutionary Ascension life. ____________________________________________________

t is an important time in humanity’s evolution. There is a consciousness evolution happening called the Ascension. We are witness to and co-participants in the evolution of human consciousness to Unity or Christ Consciousness. The father energies include courage, discipline, loyalty, security, protector, leader, peacemaker, strength and power yet compassionate and harmonious not to misuse the power. We honor and love the father. For all the experiences in the past that need healing, forgiveness is needed, as well as clearing away all the lower vibrational energies stored, remaining. This is an important time for releasing and healing the past that has not been liberated completely. In doing the inner work of clearing, liberating lower vibrational energies, it allows for newer energies and experiences of higher vibrations and the expansion of consciousness. In unity with Father God through prayer and meditation, you can receive guidance, understanding, wisdom and support. You can know more of the spiritual father energies and can gain knowledge, understanding, release and transformation for more healing to take place. You can gain understanding of the role of father in oneness with Father God and father/father figures. It takes living through experiences to gain awareness,

Exploring the Masculine with Kundalini Yoga for Men and the Teachings of Yogi Bhajan BY SACH DHARAM KAUR

As a male you have to understand that you will only be recognized as a man if you are trusted. If you don’t gain the trust of the people to whom you relate, it doesn’t matter who you are, or what you possess, or what you think you can influence, you have nothing to commend you as a man.  – Yogi Bhajan

In Kundalini Yoga there is a vast body of teachings around integrating the polarities of masculine

and feminine within each of us. The idea is to embrace both, so we can reach a higher level of awareness (consciousness) and Godliness. The expressions: “I am in touch with my feminine” or “I am in touch with my masculine” is no coincidence, but it’s not so simple. Most of us have some level of subconscious distortion around masculinity, male figures, daddy issues, sexual trauma, or other inner archetypes. We go through life, often repeating the same mistakes, disguised differently. We get caught in a pattern of behavior, beliefs that are so deeply rooted and the cause of which may not be so obvious until we start digging deep and stirring it all upwards into our consciousness, field of awareness. People choose to heal their relationships, parent-child relationships, past life, childhood trauma, or wounded heart in many ways: therapy, hypnosis, energetic healing, past life regressions, just to name a few, and there is a myriad of others healing modalities. Kundalini Yoga is being recognized as one of the most potent ways to clear the subconscious junk, restore the organism to its True identity. It’s obvious that in all the yoga classes across United States, the predominant population is women. Yet, in India, it’s the opposite. Maybe this article will intrigue you enough to explore Kundalini Yoga and gain wisdom from it that is beyond what one can achieve in a therapy session, because you can’t work on the mind with the mind. We work on the mind via the body, because the body is the substratum of the mind. What does it mean to be a man in today’s world? What is masculinity? The mainstream definition points to competition, conquering and controlling. It’s a path that lead us to the tension we experience in the world and within ourselves today. This model of masculinity is outdated, and there is a new wave of conscious men on the rise. Awakening the divine masculine through maintaining one’s strength, grace, and compassion. There are men who are awakening to their spiritual essence and they are seeking to connect with like minded individuals. These men initially face outcast and rejection within their social circle, and many are in search for safe space to embrace their identity of a conscious man. I work mostly with women in the field of fitness, nutrition, Kundalini yoga workshops, women’s circles/groups, and recently, a young man asked me, “Do you offer anything like that for men?” His words struck me like a lightning bolt, and I said, “YES, I will. I do.” And here it is, an all-men only Kundalini Yoga class based on the book and teachings of Yogi Bhajan “Man to Man: A journal of Discovery for the conscious man”. I am a mother of 3 sons, and it is my heart’s deepest desire to raise my younglings into graceful, compassionate, and spiritual men. The journey begins Tuesday, July 9 at 7 pm. Every Tuesday, we will offer a Kundalini Yoga BY L. RON HUBBARD class for men at FitforBliss Healing Sanctuary, Church of Scientology Mission of Belleair Wesley Chapel. There are only 6 spots.

Unlock the Mystery of the T

he “yang” of the world follows the sun and action, a masculine model; the “yin” follows the mystery of the moon, a feminine model, the dark and deep inner feminine flow. Busy schedules and active lifestyles move people away from an inner focus and into being consumed by the outer world. The sunlight represents the outer world offering all that is obvious and a radiant view. The moonlight presents what is unobvious. In the moonlight, you see what is just beneath the surface. As you respond to the moonlight, pure deeper levels within open. A new subtle seeing begins to appear and you find yourself no longer depending on yourself to be your guiding light. Gently and slowly, you begin to see your being coming to light. When this happens, it changes how and what you see. Women generally are a little closer to their beings than men. Woman are being “more feminine” as they resonate with their hearts. A woman earns being a real woman as she becomes more like her being. A woman’s deeper “womaness” is based on her being having presence thru her heart and into herself. The movement of that in her is the movement of her mystery. When a man is being in his heart, he can be close to a woman’s mystery. Then her mystery has entrance into him. It is easier for a man to realize a woman’s mystery then for him to realize his because she is a little closer to it. As a man realizes her mystery, and moves toward it, he is not just moving in his levels of being towards her but at the same time, he is moving in his own mystery. A woman’s mystery is how her being, her inner goddess, moves through her humanness. She may not even realize her

Goddess own mystery but when a man is at rest and being open and soft in his heart, she gets her mystery because it moves to him and neither one may understand it. When a woman dances in the moonlight, she realizes that she is delicately reading with more levels in the moonlight than in the sunlight. The moonlight highlights the depth beneath and the depth above. As a woman moves in her mystery, she awakens to a deeper knowing and a deeper sexuality. This awakening profoundly relaxes her awareness of the sexuality she is used to in herself. A deeper sexuality is the capacity to meet and commune. Awareness of the deeper levels of being and moving in those levels changes yourself. You as a self are no longer your center. You are now being what you know in your heart which is the door to your center. When a woman is being in her heart and in the truth of what she knows; she dances in the moonlight and the mystery of the goddess.

WHAT IS SCIENTOLOGY? Someone searches that question online every six seconds. There’s

a lot of talk about us. We know, people are curious. Face it, Scientology wouldn’t be in the news so much if it wasn’t so interesting. Well, we want to answer your questions. Because the only thing more interesting than what you’ve heard, is what you haven’t. Unlike traditional religious broadcasting, we’re not here to preach to you, to convince you or convert you. No. We’re simply going to show you inside the world of Scientology. Take a look and decide for yourself. Curious?

Should I Stay or Should I Go? BY SA N DY PA R R IS H

As summertime approaches, many families find themselves asking that question. With so many great things to do in our Community and surrounding areas, you don’t have to go very far to enjoy a summer filled with fun and adventure. Here are a few family favorites and some forgotten treasures that are pretty close to home for a great day trip.

PRISTINE BEACHES

Located right in our backyard, the Tampa Bay area is home to many of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Clearwater Beach and Pass-a-Grille Beach in St. Petersburg are just a few of the local favorites, however if you’re looking for something on the road less traveled, check out Fort Desoto Park, Sand Key or Honeymoon Island. If you’d like to bring Fido along, here are a few dog-friendly beaches in the area: Picnic Island Beach Dog Park, Davis Islands Dog Park and Beach, Fort De Soto Park Dog Beach and Park, and Honeymoon Island State Park.

RIVER ADVENTURES

Rent a canoe or kayak down any of the beautiful rivers in our area including the Hillsborough River, Alafia River and Withlacoochee River.

SUNKEN GARDENS

Sunken Gardens is a botanical paradise in the midst of a bustling city. As St. Petersburg's oldest living museum, this 100-year-old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region. Explore cascading waterfalls, beautiful demonstration gardens, more than 50,000 tropical plants, and flowers. (727) 551-3102

WEEKI WACHEE SPRINGS STATE PARK

Enjoy swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and more in the crystal clear spring waters of Weeki Wachee. After a scheduled renovation, the mermaid shows, river boat rides and wildlife programs are scheduled to reopen June 15th, just in time for summer fun. www.weekiwachee.com

a dense forest from tree to tree on fun obstacles that defy gravity. Get in sync with nature and love every single moment spent with your friends and family as you experience one of the most unique attractions in Florida. www.treeumph.com

SCALLOPING SEASON

The season kicks into high gear this summer! Harvesting is done about 2-3 miles from shore in the gulf, and they can be found almost anywhere Eelgrass is located. Call it an Easter Egg Hunt Florida-style. Every summer, the star of the sea is the delectable Bay Scallop of the warm shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a fun family-friendly underwater adventure and all you need is a mask, snorkel and flippers and one exceptional charter captain. Levy, Citrus and Hernando counties (including Cedar Key, Crystal River and Homosassa): July 1 through Sept. 24. Pasco County: July 19-28. www.myfwc.com/fishing/ saltwater/recreational/bay-scallops
