Revolutionary Stretching Franchise Extends Its Reach in Florida StretchLab Set to Develop Four Tampa Studios in 2019
Highly Trained Flexologists™ to Alter Local Wellness Scene
he nation’s premier assisted stretching franchise, StretchLab, announced today its plans to enter Tampa with four new studios, which will provide an unmatched wellness experience to residents. Local husband and wife team, George Spowart and Soosie Lazenby, will open three studios, while local entrepreneur, Vik Ajjampur, will open another. Tampa Bay, Largo and St. Petersburg are among the areas targeted for the four new StretchLab locations. With over fifty years of marketing experience between them, George and Soosie are ready to take the Tampa market by storm. Both owners fully realize the importance of the StretchLab concept, as George, former Chief Marketing Officer of PODS, has been stretching on his own for years. Soosie, the owner of an award winning event and design company in Clearwater, has worked extensively in sports marketing, and was the Sports Commissioner for the State of Massachusetts as well as the Chair of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. Vik, an IT professional and avid tennis player, also understands how crucial the practice of deep stretching is for a holistic, healthy lifestyle. “Both of us have always been passionate about fitness so it’s exciting to bring our business experience to something we really believe in -- getting involved with StretchLab was a natural next step for us,” said Soosie. “I think StretchLab will be the perfect complement to the current wellness scene in Tampa, with the area’s growing and active population.” For more information about the StretchLab locations in and around Tampa, visit www.stretchlab.com 4

What to Know About H
ave you ever considered adding hypnosis or hypnotherapy to your bag of tricks? Perhaps you are considering it as a new profession, just for personal growth, or as an adjunct to an existing profession? The opportunities are endless with what you can do with the power of your mind. Simply put, a comprehensive hypnotherapy training can change your life forever. Here are some basics. choose which hours you study, and access online resources which are priceless. In-house training allows you to be supervised with your techniques, make new friends, and learn from highlyqualified instructors and mentors.
Federally Acknowledged and State-Licensed The United States Department of Labor honors hypnotherapy as a true occupation, which makes it very important for schools offering career training in the field to be licensed by their respective State’s Department of Education. Most trainings do not maintain these standards and operate under the radar. We cannot encourage you enough to only attend State-Licensed Hypnotherapy Schools. How Many Hours of Training Do I Need? Training to be a Certified Hypnotist can run from 70 to 100 hours. Certified Hypnotherapist Training can be 200 to 300 hours, and more advanced trainings such as Clinical/Medical Hypnotherapist or Transpersonal Hypnotherapist can run 400 to 500 hours.
What About Licensing, Credentialing and Regulation? Legally, schools for hypnotherapy need to be licensed by the Department of Education, yet hypnotists and hypnotherapists themselves do not. The profession is self-regulated through certification by a variety of associations. It is important to be part of an association that protects the profession and its practitioners, that offers continuing education hours (CEUs) and that holds yearly conferences for its members. You do not have to be part of one of these associations, yet it is highly recommended and it is important to choose one with a clear code of ethics.
Becoming a Hypnotherapist can change your life forever, empowering you with valuable skillsets that benefit your life in the most remarkable ways. We strongly encourage you to do it right and to seek the highest standards of education that you can find. Are Prior Degrees Required? No. Hypnotherapy is its own profession, just as is massage therapy, cosmetology, or life coaching. A State-Licensed school will have basic requirements as set forth by the Department of Education, yet anyone can attend a training if they meet basic qualifications. Is This a Legitimate Occupation? Yes. If you attend a true, licensed, postsecondary vocational institute, then your diplomas are real. You can work full-time, part-time, use this as an adjunct to your current caregiving profession, and/or you can just go through the trainings for personal and spiritual growth. After graduation you can be your own boss, make your own hours, have your own office, see clients, and transform people’s lives in truly meaningful ways. Can I Learn Online or do I Need to Attend In-House? You can do both. Most quality colleges, universities and vocational institutes offer online training, in-house training, and hybrid trainings which are a combination of online and in-house. Online training allows you to go at your own pace,
How Do I Know If a School is Legitimate? Go to the Department of Education’s website known as the Commission for Independent Education and search for hypnotherapy schools or give them a call at 850-245-9667. Ask if the school you are thinking about is licensed. Unlicensed activity should be reported as it misleads the public and is highly frowned upon by the Department of Education. Licensed schools have stringent requirements to operate and require that their retention rates and placement rates are monitored and reported. Look for schools with retention rates and placement rates well over 85% to ensure that the majority of their students stay in the training, and also that they are satisfied after graduation. What About Other Trainings to Support My Basic Education? A solid foundation usually consists of 200 to 300 hours, yet 500+ hours is the industry standard. Beyond that there are many online and in-house CEU courses which can keep you learning forever. These include more advanced trainings in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Clinical/Medical Hypnotherapy, and of course, the more metaphysical components of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy.

Can Relationships Influence Our Health?
ften the idea of love tends to bring heightened emotions that can be fleeting, and for those without a partner, a sense of judgment or inadequacy may arise. Do relationships or lack thereof have an impact on our health? One of the largest studies of adult life conducted by Harvard, reveals that the degree of happiness one feels in a relationship significantly influences their health. In fact, it was found that the degree of happiness in relationships was a greater predictor of physical health than cholesterol levels. These relationships include romantic partners as well as friendships and community. The beneficial hormones dopamine, serotonin, endorphins, and oxytocin are released when one experiences happiness. These hormones have many protective benefits including improved mood, reduced stress, and a potential reduction in the perception of pain. So, it seems along with evaluating annual blood work to assess a person’s health status, we also need to include an evaluation of the quality of the relationships in a person’s life. Along with research regarding how happiness may affect health, there are several studies correlating loneliness with premature death. Loneliness has the same risk to health as smoking and obesity. During times of loneliness, the part of the body involved in the stress response remains chronically activated. This leads to an increase in the production of the stress hormone cortisol and ultimately inflammation in the body. In one survey, it was found that nearly half of Americans
reported feeling alone or isolated some of the time. Notably, research revealed this phenomenon occurs more commonly amongst millennials than older individuals. Thus it appears that isolation is far more common than we may recognize and it may bring a cascade of detrimental effects to one’s health. If the quality of our relationships has such a significant impact on our health, it is paramount that we give consideration to the company we keep. Consider reflecting on the relationships in your life. Do they raise or drain your energy? Do you feel nourished or depleted by the people in your life? The answer is not always about walking away from relationships; sometimes it requires one to forgive, be less critical, or shift perspective to enhance current relationships. Along with giving our attention and focus to the foods we consume and how physically active we are in life, we also need to consider the quality of relationships including the importance of being part of a community. Make time to connect with others and evaluate the ways in which you can enhance the relationships in your life on a regular basis. This often requires a personal inquiry and introspection. Lastly, in the words of Robert J. Waldinger, Psychiatrist and director of the Harvard Study of Adult Development: “It turns out that people who are more socially connected to family, to friends, to community, are happier, they’re physically healthier, and they live longer than people who are less well connected.” Conversely: “People who are more isolated than they want to be from others find that they are less happy, their health declines earlier in midlife, their brain functioning declines sooner, and they live shorter lives than people who are not lonely.” What will you choose?

anifestation is the result of creation – and creation is born in our thoughts. We manifest what we think about and the creation is not random — there is an energy force behind it. The pathway that thought energy travels is desire, intent, clarity and action. Our feelings are the unseen, yet powerful, force behind our thoughts. Every thought we send out is equivalent to placing an order with the Universe. For instance, when we go to a restaurant we fully expect to receive the exact order we placed with the waiter. If we place an order for fried chicken, we expect fried chicken. We don’t give the waiter an order of tofu and broccoli when we want and expect fried chicken!

TRANSFORM YOUR BODY, MIND AND LIFE!
Using Dr. Grossgold’s blueprint, you harness your simple, self-care practices and change habits. These practices cover the five essential pillars to resolving the underlying cause of your health problems – including your nervous system, your endocrine system, detoxification, nutrition and fitness. It is very easy to manifest our desired order in a restaurant. Manifesting with the Universe may take a bit more time, energy and effort yet it can still result in our desired order! We place our order with the Universe with our conscious and subconscious thoughts. However, if negativity, fear or doubt seep into our thoughts, even subconsciously, we can be certain something unwanted will show up. Even with our restaurant order, a negative or angry thought can deliver poor service, tasteless food, or a much delayed order. The same is true with the manifesting process with the Universe. Fear, doubt, or negativity — either conscious or subconscious – will deliver to us more of the same fears, doubts and negativity. The Universe will “take our order” as sent via our thoughts. How can we learn to manifest easily, quickly, and joyfully? For instance, if you want to “order up” the soul mate of your dreams, you would not focus on “I don’t want a jerk” or “I don’t want a liar”, and definitely not “I don’t want to get hurt again”! The Universe will “hear” and respond to exactly those words because the Universe responds to thought energy. There is no differentiation between want and don’t want. The thought energy that is sent out is what will return. In order to get what you really want, your order must be filled with positive energy, clarity, and focus, combined with positive feelings and emotions. Then take appropriate action to be in alignment with your order. Be sure your mind menu feels good and brings you joy. The final part is to place your order, get out of the way, trust the chef, stay far away from the kitchen and expect magnificence from your waiter! PHONE: 813-501-4894

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?
The BRIDGE is a non-profit organization that promotes eco-centric living, social justice, personal development, creativity and the vibrant interplay between these interdependent aspects of life.
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.

FEAR: The Only Life it Has is the Life We Give It BY DR. DENNIS MERRITT JONES
“Often fear originates in our mind because, try as we may, we have little control over the future. And, the future is where we tend to look for our security, seeking the assurance that everything will be all right. The illusion is that we have control over many variables in our daily life and that seems to make us feel better, at least temporarily. However, we really have control over very little, other than our next breath and our next thought.”
Are you aware of the acronym for F.E.A.R: False Evidence
Appearing Real. I have another one for you: Forget Everything And Run. Isn’t that what we often do when a fear thought appears in our mind, triggering our emotions? We reactively turn from the fear and run away as fast as we can; to the medicine cabinet, the liquor cabinet, the refrigerator, the shopping mall, or any other form of instant denial. In the East, it is said that we must learn to dance with our fear because the closer we can get to it, the more fully we can make peace with it. The practice is to understand it’s not about slaying the monster; it’s about learning to lead the dance. This requires us to dance cheek-to-cheek with our demons rather than run from them. If we are willing to listen, fear can be a great messenger to get our attention, and can even serve us well in certain circumstances. However, it’s vital to remember that fear has no life of its own, other than that which we choose to give it. Fear is a word (or label) to which we have learned to assign certain emotions that infer the possibility of loss in the future—be it five minutes or five years. Perhaps the emotion that seems to predominately rise to the top of this list for many of us, is worry.
How to Transcend the Worry Habit
“That the birds of worry and care fly over your head, this you cannot change, but that they build nests in your hair, this you can prevent.” ~ Chinese Proverb Have you ever used the term “no worries” to minimize an issue when someone apologizes to you or asks that you pardon them for some small, innocent, breach of conduct or etiquette? The term has become a casual, kind, but useful, euphemism that covers a lot of territory when one wants to say more by saying less. On a more serious note, worry is a topic which affects us all; it is a toxic energy that always attaches itself to fear, manifesting in one of its most convincing disguises. With awareness, saying “no worries” can help us defuse fear by consciously using the term as a mindfulness
practice. The more often I say “no worries” to other people, the more I realize what a great affirmation, or mantra, it is for myself. Just allow the words “no worries” to wash over you. Hear the words as a statement of fact and as a truth that you are claiming as your own. This is another way of declaring, “I choose NOT to invest my precious time and energy in something over which I have no control.” Think about it; when you are consumed with worry (based on any issue) where is your mind? You have projected it into the future where you have not even a modicum of control. The only thing you have any real control over is perhaps your next breath and the thought attached to it in the present moment, so make that thought a healthy and productive one. In other words, the best way to affect your tomorrow in a positive manner is to be acutely aware of what you are putting in your mind today, understanding that fear is never the answer. This is not meant to trivialize the issues that may be going on in our lives or the world around us which are intensely compelling and certainly worthy of our concern; it’s merely a reality check. Worrying about anything over which we have no control is a poor use of the limited and precious time allotted to us on this planet because it doesn’t change anything except our blood pressure. The next time the worry habit fearfully rises and wraps itself around you, casting you into the future, stop for a moment, take a deep breath, and ask it to “dance” with you. Pulling your fear close, whisper in its ear, “Are you something I have control over or the ability to change in this moment?” If the guidance you receive is “yes” then drop the worry and take up whatever action you must to alleviate the fear; do what needs to be done. Conversely, if the answer you hear is a resounding “no” then take a deep breath and let the issue go. Embrace “what is” in the moment; refuse to allow worry to have its way with you. In either case, you will be actualizing the mantra that can set you free to be fully present and at peace with yourself in that moment. “no worries”, it’s more than an affirmation—it’s a way of life. Fear can only have the life you choose to give it.

BY ALUNA MICHAELS, M.A. PISCES
Feb. 19th – March 20th
May 21st– June 20th
August 23 to September 22
Nov. 22nd – Dec. 21st
Happy birthday Pisces! As Uranus enters Taurus, get ready for a revolution in your thinking! You study so much about spirituality and positive thoughts, but how well do you do in practice? Right now you can have an almost magical shift that makes it easy to refrain from self-pity or depressive thoughts. Your job is to sustain your new identity as a person with a faith-filled mind rather than a fear-filled brain. All areas will transform from health, to relationships, to finances!
March 21st – April 19th
June 21st – July 22nd
Chiron moves into Aries for the first time in 50 years! Chiron is about healing on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. These next years initiate you into deep powers of manifestation coming from the integrity and strength of your soul. Focus on studies such as yoga, qigong, reiki or meditation. Mercury being retrograde helps you see a quick increase in your intuition and in your feelings of connection with the Universe. You can have a financial windfall, a physical healing or insights that resolve emotional blocks!
TAURUS April 20th – May 20th Wow! Revolutionary Uranus moves into your sign for seven years, which only happens every 84 years! Celebrate by pondering areas you want to change. Chiron also shifts signs, showing hidden issues that keep you stuck in undesirable patterns. Write a list of exciting potentials and meditate on those ideas. Really feel what it’ll be like to be this new you! As a Taurus you’re naturally cautious, but take safe risks that lead to powerful results. You’ll feel vital, empowered and alive! P.S. Even though Uranus is for 7 years, take actions now!
With Mercury retrograde this month, meditate and breathe before you speak or act! You can feel confused about career, but the best way to get clear is with quiet reflection. When your mind is quieter than normal, insights pop into your mind. Deep breathing also works wonders for you in general, but especially now. Make time to spend with friends on a spiritual path who cultivate their intuitive wisdom. Your life will take lovely surprising turns in all areas, not just work!
Chiron, the divine healer, is helping you heal from deepest family wounds. It is always possible to change patterns of emotional reactions to people and to life! These painful responses may have held you back financially, intimately or creatively, but mostly they’ve blocked your capacity for joy. If you’ve been feeling distant from the love and care of the Universe, use this month’s Mercury retrograde to rewrite your definition of whatever you choose to call God. You’ll feel safer and more trusting in life. You’ll blossom in your sense of purpose in work or home. You’ll be able to freely give and receive love!
LEO July 23 – August 22 Uranus changes signs, bringing a revolution in your work life! Even if you don’t change jobs, you’ll feel empowered and inspired in your ability to positively influence others. Just by committing to live from your personal truth and passion that radiates from your heart, others will be shifted. Also, your marriage or relationship will increase in trust and intimacy. If single, you can magnetize a loving partnership that represents the new unfolding of your amazing self!
With Mercury retrograde, beware of jumping to conclusions with miscommunication in relationships. If you feel hurt or slighted, meditate on the issue and see if it represents a recurring emotional pattern. You can work to heal that pattern through awareness. If you do need to confront your partner, you can do it less defensively. You can clearly describe your experience and create healthy boundaries and guidelines for the future. Also, open your mind to the idea that the universe is abundant and that you’re worthy of receiving finances and pleasure from life!
LIBRA Sept. 23rd – Oct. 22nd As Uranus and Chiron change signs, you’re ushered into a seven year period of healing about partnerships, sexuality, intimacy and trust. Meditation reveals what negative thought patterns inhibit you from truly enjoying life and love. Especially watch for picking on yourself! You can also find out about a food allergy that depletes your energy so now you’ll have more vitality. Relationships really flourish as you’re ready to try new ways of experiencing the world. You’re likely to receive major financial gifts or “unexpected income”, so remain open for blessings!
SCORPIO October 23 to November 21 Uranus changes signs, giving a jumpstart to relationships! Meditate on your deepest values and integrity. Are you acting in ways that align with your heart and soul? Do you need to “raise the bar” on how you and your partner interact? Deep bonds need to radically change in order to flourish. If single, you can meet someone who matches your values in an exciting way. Chiron changes signs too, asking you to respect your body and levels of stress. Scorpios are tough, but you have your limits like any human! Allow yourself enough rest. Eat thoughtfully. Have reflection time to re-center your energy. If you have pets, they can be especially healing at this time.
Chiron, the spiritual healer, wants to open your heart to your parent or even teenaged or adult children. Meditate on the fact that we are all souls on a spiritual path and develop compassion from that perspective. If you’ve been neglecting your health, shift your eating in a radical fun way. It’s a cool experiment to try new veggies, right?! You might also start playing a sport or begin dancing. Also, anything to do with the arts will be super empowering and energizing. Your forgiveness work releases extra joy that’s been covered up for a long time!
CAPRICORN Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th If you feel you’ve gotten “boring”, Uranus changing signs awakens your fun side! Creativity is so healing to your soul. What sort of activities bring you joy? Dancing, arts, sports, pets, kids? Think about what delighted you when you were little and learn to play again. Also meditate on how to heal with family so old burdens don’t weigh you down any longer. “Following your bliss” activates your intuition, leading to financial, health and mood improvements!
AQUARIUS Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th It’s common for you to feel like an outsider, however, Uranus moving into Taurus wants to change all of that! Meditate on times you were left out of groups. Observe the scene as if you were a loving angel, sweetly sending love and care to the “left out” you. This can re-pattern your nervous system from anger and anxiety and heal old wounds. Each tiny step allows your heart to open more deeply to people in your present who want to love you! You’ll also be able to take in more prosperity and general joy. Keep focusing on what a blessing you are to so many!

ve been privileged to be a Licensed Spiritual Healer and Practitioner for about 13 years and I have seen and heard all manner of stories. The ones that stand out the most are the ones where my client embodied bravery or courage, which caused them to make the most progress toward healing and wholeness. Here’s what my amazing clients have taught me and what I have come to understand about this subject. Bravery, like faith, seems to be a lot like a muscle. The more we exercise it, the more it grows. I have also noticed that bravery and faith seem to go hand in hand. It seems like the Universe or life brings us situations and events to help us grow that muscle to make us stronger, braver, and increase our faith. One thing is for sure, we truly don’t know anyone else’s story. We don’t know what their journey has brought them through or how many traumas they have survived. It may be a miracle that they even made it through their childhood or got up this morning. Being brave, for some, may simply be getting out of bed in the morning, opening the blinds and facing another monotonous, boring, humdrum day in order to put food on the table for their family. Yes, it’s exactly like that old saying. We haven’t, can’t and won’t ever walk in their moccasins. Therefore doesn’t it make sense to treat everyone as if they just survived or stepped out of their worst nightmare? I think that’s actually a very brave and compassionate thing to remember and try to do. After all, wouldn’t we want to be treated that way ourselves? Life keeps asking us to be our biggest boldest self by presenting us with the opportunities to make the choice to be brave and exercise our faith. But what happens when our prayers are answered and the answer is no? You do everything right. You pray all the prayers, check all the boxes, call all the angels, yet the thing you want changed or removed, isn’t. So it seems that sometimes the only way out, is through. It has been said, “Bravery is feeling the fear and doing it anyway.” Fear isn’t real. It is False Evidence Appearing Real. If we wait for the fear to go away, we may be stuck forever.

An interesting fact about the mother eagle is that once she senses that her baby’s wings are getting strong enough to fly, she starts to remove all the fluffy padding in the nest. Little by little, the nest becomes too uncomfortable to stay in any longer and the baby eagle jumps, spreads its wings and flies. How amazing is that? When things need to change, life seems to create that in our lives too. We get too comfortable and we don’t yet know that we can fly. The mother eagle has complete faith in her little one, just as the Universe has complete faith in us. Let’s believe in ourselves and jump! I think everyone is asked by life to be brave and to grow their faith in special and unique ways. We don’t have to parachute off a cliff or sky dive or have a terminal disease to be brave. Bravery can be practiced in so many diverse and simple ways, in secret and without fanfare. Are we brave enough to do the right thing? Are we brave enough to take the high road or admit when we are wrong? Are we brave enough to love ourselves or to stop people pleasing? Are we brave enough to smile and look a homeless person in the eye, thereby returning some dignity to him that he has lost along his way? Are we brave enough to listen and follow our intuition when others think we’re crazy? Are we brave enough to be fully present when someone is telling us their story? The list goes on and on. In conclusion, let’s make brave conscious choices everyday and meet life’s call to bravery with a loud resounding YES! Because when we say YES to life, then life says YES to us. _____________________________________________________

Learning to live A s the proverb states, there are many paths leading to the top of the mountain. Likewise, there are numerous ways to learn to live fearlessly. My intention here is to share my own personal experiences over the last 5 years as I embraced the practice of Kundalini Yoga and learned to cultivate a state of awareness that lends itself to living fearlessly. First let me clarify, living fearlessly does not mean a total absence of fear. It means that I recognize when I begin to feel constricted within my Self. It also means that my level of awareness helps me identify subconscious thoughts and beliefs that are running in the background as part of the “old programming”, conditioning, and possibly early life experiences. Certainly, as a spiritual being having a human experience, I still have viable fears that arise on occasion, but my response to those fears is less intense than it used to be. You might wonder, how did I get here? How does one learn to lead and live a fearless life? For me, it was Kundalini Yoga that started me on a journey of self-discovery; and, continues even now as a journey to Self-Mastery. In ancient yogic wisdom, fear is recognized simply as ENERGY. Energy is neither good or bad. The Mind, our psyche (Ego) “judges” or interprets this energy. “Nothing is good or bad. Thinking makes it so”, taught Yogi Bhajan. This “thinking” process is superfast and often based on subconscious
body, because the body is the substratum of the mind. The teachings of Kundalini yoga give us insight that we have 3 mental bodies: negative (protective) mind, positive (expansive) mind, and neutral (meditative) mind. It also teaches us about 8 Charkas (not Seven as widely accepted). Your 8th Chakra is your Auric Body, your Electro Magnetic field. That’s how the Law of Attraction works. You are Electric and Magnetic. Your Auric body is your Presence. It’s your infinity, thus it’s the 8th energetic body (the symbol of infinity). The practice also works on 72,000 channels within the body, called Nadis. Some of these channels are called meridians that used in Eastern holistic medicine and acupuncture. When we practice Kundalini yoga, we use the Prana, the Life force energy to clear those 72,000 channels. We use mantras, sound current, to clear and cut through old thought patterns, habits, behaviors and “knee-jerk” reactions. For me, Kundalini Yoga is one of the best SELF CARE practices known to many around the world, and it’s gaining popularity here in the United States. I committed to do a 40-day challenge on Dharmic Warrior, a series of Kriyas and meditations that focused on the ultimate Fear, the fear of DEATH. Yogi Bhajan taught: “If a human fears death, a human fears life”, and I wanted to live my life fully. It was during this practice that I became aware of some of my fears: “Fear of failure” and “Fear of Success”. I know, it
To find courage, we go to the depth of fear; to find Faith, we go to the greatest doubts; to find strength, we go to the depth of despair, but in every action and reaction, we must learn to resurrect ourselves. That’s the awareness and the wisdom. warehouse of feelings, emotions, thoughts, and beliefs. We can’t solve our subconscious mind’s problems with the mind, so we do that via the body, and that’s the technology of Kundalini yoga. In Kundalini yoga, we work on the mind through our
seems rather paradoxical. For me, the first one was closely tied to my high expectations of myself and a constant striving for perfection. In my work, I noticed a pattern that I developed that had me spinning inside my mind endlessly, like an old record. I would often get great ideas of implementing workshops and events, and because my own expectations were set so high, I would endlessly obsess over achieving nothing but perfection. In the end, I would always fall back on procrastination, continuously making excuses and ultimately not follow through with the project or ideas. The consequences were even more devastating. I felt guilty and ashamed about quitting and giving up, and not following through. It was a vicious cycle of mental Self Abuse! Through my Kundalini yoga practice, I became aware of this pattern and set out to change it. I showed up on my yoga mat and engaged in a daily

practice doing kriyas (specific set of exercises/movements) that opened my body’s channels and my mind to the flow of Universal Energy and helped clear some of the subconscious clutter that had me “stuck in my old ways”. I learned so much about myself during my meditations and gained insight on how to move beyond self-limiting beliefs. I realized that in chasing perfection, we lose sight of purpose. I learned to give up control where there was nothing up to me to control, except the way I shape my thoughts, form my beliefs, and manage my own breath flow. Through this practice, I began to feel expansive and limitless. I worked for 40 days on just strengthening my Aura. I worked on developing my breath (pranayama), purifying my body and my mind with the Breath of Fire. Additionally, I spend time meditating and chanting mantras which helped uplift my spirit. In Kundalini Yoga lineage and its vast body of teachings, you can find a practice that can be used as medicine to heal your body, mind, and reconnect you to YOUR Divinity within. Fearlessness is a quality of the Divine, the Infinite within us. To be fearless, is to lean on the Source Energy/ Creator/ God/Universe. To be fearless means that we must let go of the Ego and our attachments and learn to Trust. Universe supports us always and forever. Maintain the attitude of gratitude when things are good and not so good, to make them good again. I invite you to use this mantra to help you release your fears.

Let’s get moving Exercise is the best anti-aging medicine! M
ovement in your life is important, your life depends on it. Research evidence has emerged demonstrating that in addition to reducing the risk of chronic disease, moderate to vigorous exercise may also slow the aging process at the DNA level. Everyone knows that exercise is good for you! It helps manage weight, improve muscle and bone health and life, enhances your spirit and adds years to your life. Movement and exercise can also be effective with prevention of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Exercise enhances your mood and provides a way of giving your body a big boost in overall well-being. People who exercise have better immune systems and less inflammation. Did you know that the way to staying youthful and healthy is not your heart, lungs, or your brain- it is your muscles? Why? Exercise is the key to keeping mitochondria healthy! Muscles contain 95% of the mitochondria in the body. Mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cells and the fat burners. Recent research states that mitochondrial function is the true key to unlock the mystery of aging. And, it is the decrease in the number and the health of our mitochondria that determines how aging affects health. A new strain of research has found a link between two theories on aging suggesting that mitochondria communicate
with our cells’ telomeres telling them whether they should shorten and hasten aging or not to help slow down or halt the aging process. Telomeres are the tips or caps at the ends of our chromosomes and are sequences of non-coding DNA. Telomeres play a critical role in human health. Recent research states that mitochondrial function is the true key to unlock the mystery of aging. It is the decrease in the number and the health of mitochondria that determines how aging affects health. A new strain of research has found a link between two theories on aging suggesting that mitochondria communicate with our cells’ telomeres telling them whether they should shorten which hastens aging, or not to shorten which helps slow down or halt the aging process. Shorter telomeres are linked to hypertension, cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, type two diabetes, osteoporosis, oxidative stress and obesity. Lower levels of physical activity contribute to these conditions, and maintenance of telomere length may be one link between exercise, disease prevention and longevity. One minute of exercise adds 7 minutes of life!

What to Plant
Annuals: Replace declining winter annuals with varieties such as angelonia, gazania, and salvia that will provide color now and into the summer months.

Bulbs: Plant caladium for a showy tropical display all summer.
Herbs: In addition to their culinary value, many herbs are ornamental and attract butterflies to the garden.

I finally realized that my only recourse was to forget everything I thought I knew and surrender to a state I called “the great unknown.”
What to Do
Azaleas: Prune azaleas just after plants finish blooming to shape or produce a fuller plant. Shrubs and trees: Prune when new growth begins after the end of the dormant season. To guard next season’s blooms, begin pruning after the last flowers fade but before the new buds set. Palms and shrubs: Fertilize palms, azaleas, camellias, and other ornamental shrubs if needed. Irrigation: Check sprinkler systems for efficient water use.
