The Benefits of Yoga Teacher Training
hy immerse yourself in a yoga teacher training? The desire to want more of this amazing practice is something that happens to many practitioners once they start to see the benefits first in the physical body and then the mind and spirit as well. Some simply want a better understanding of the practice while others have the intentions of teaching and helping others find their way on the journey. The thing is that this is a path that is open to everyone. When you embark on this journey itâ€™s really an investment in your Self. I have often said that yoga is a work in not a work out, a way to peel away the layers of past hurts and unwanted baggage and to let go of fear of the future. What better way to a deeper understanding of who you are and how you fit in and find purpose in the world.
uring the course of any teacher training you will dive into all the aspects of the practice including anatomy, asana and philosophy. You will also learn how to intelligently create your own sequences whether itâ€™s for you or a class full of students. I highly recommend teacher training for anyone who wants to learn more about this ancient practice. If you want a deeper experience of yoga I suggest you find the right teacher for you and find the time to immerse yourself. You will not regret it! Studio 108 Yoga & Holistic Healing offers 200 & 300-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training programs with Missy White 500 E-RYT starting January 2019. For more information go to www.studio108tampa.com

Traditional Chinese Medicine
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) the basis of all disease is caused by emotional trauma. This is a Yang energy, eliminate this Yang energy and we have harmony which is Yin. Thus, Yin/Yang are the balance that cures all dis-harmony and brings you to a state of normalcy, here at the Sentient Temple we teach and guide any patient in a Yang state how to harmonize their life through Prescription Exercises into a state of harmony which promotes wellbeing and eliminates disease.
A Theory Fundamental to TCM Practice
The theory of Yin and Yang is fundamental to the practice of TCM in terms of understanding, diagnosing, and treating health issues. At the most basic and deep level, TCM treatment seeks to balance Yin and Yang in each person. One ancient TCM text expressed the power and importance of Yin and Yang this way: “If you can understand Yin and Yang you can hold the universe in your hands.”
How Yin and Yang Apply to You and Your Life
You might be wondering how Yin and Yang apply to you and your life, and to any health issues you might have. Theories are interesting, but unless they have some meaning to your own experience, what’s the point? First, the theory of Yin-Yang tells us that at the macro level—the largest scale imaginable—all things are always balancing and re-balancing into a state of perfect harmony. Yes, there is ceaseless change, yet this movement and flux, at its deepest level, is creating harmony, is perfect harmony. Yin and Yang are the two energies that embody Universal law, which ensures that all things remain in harmony. It’s often difficult to actually see this harmony on a smaller scale, in the world around us, for instance. It isn’t always apparent in the world humans have created and especially in our busy, frequently complicated modern lives. But think about it: if you really understand and believe in Yin and Yang, harmony is the Universal architectural framework that underlies and impacts this reality. So in essence, harmony is the only ground we walk on and is the very air we breathe. How can you apply this awareness to your life? A great part of TCM’s healing approach is to help you step back from your life and look at where your life might actually be creating health issues for you. For most people, this is a process that happens over time. For some, it comes in a moment of great insight. From the TCM perspective, what is the point of continually treating symptoms that are caused by emotions, patterns of thought, belief systems, or a lifestyle that is out of balance? Truly, isn’t it better to understand and work to change the root cause (or causes) of the problem? But what if you don’t know the root cause. Here at the Sentient Temple we uncover the root cause and correct it by evaluating your Yin/Yang structure. The entire Universal pattern is one of establishing balance and harmony. This perspective can help you more peacefully view the world and your role in it. Most people have heard the saying, “As above, so below.” If Universal law is all about creating and maintaining harmony, wouldn’t the limitless power of that energy force support in some way your own efforts to create harmony in your own body and being? As a deep and authentic healing system, TCM understands and applies Yin and Yang to help you harmonize your body, mind, emotions, and spirit, and then harmonize your individual energy with nature.
Yin and Yang Qualities:
In a typically poetic way, the Chinese characters for Yin and Yang reveal something about their respective qualities. For example, the character for Yin can represent the shady side of a hill, while the one for Yang can indicate the sunny side of a hill. Below are Yin-Yang Pairs Exemplifying Two Universal Energies: Male / Female Back / Front Yang / Yin Energy / Matter Rising / Descending Yin-Yang Pairs in Your Head / Body Heaven / Earth Activity / Rest Above / Below Body Above the Waist / Below the Waist Sun / Moon Generates / Grows East / West Yang / Yin Function / Structure Light / Darkness Expansion / Contraction South / North Exterior / Interior Qi (energy) / Blood and bodily fluids Fire / Water Round / Flat Left / Right Time / Space Here at the Sentient Temple we teach and guide you to recognize and establish a Yin/Yang balance thus creating a life of harmony, balance and good health. We challenge the most impossible diseases and have a 100% cure rate with patients who follow our precepts exactly as prescribed, no matter what the disharmony is. PHONE: 813-501-4894
Why Partners Keep Talking About Their Exes
elationship coach, dating expert and men’s ‘wing girl’ Marni Kinrys is speaking up about relationships with past loves - and whether or not it’s a good idea. “My clients often bring this up to me, and while it’s not a one-size-fits-all situation, I can often very clearly see their reactions and emotions when they’re speaking, and that tells me a lot,” says Kinrys of the touchy subject. “It totally depends on what gender you are talking about - when men are over their exes, they don’t bring them up… if a guy is constantly bringing up his ex, in a not so nice manner and somewhat emotional way… he’s not over her. “Women, however, are the opposite. If she’s over her ex, she WILL talk about him. She does this to subtly explain to her new man how she works and what she wants and what didn’t work for her in the past…
it’s called third-wheel exing, bringing a third party into your dating life to help things move along more smoothly this time around.” Whether it’s for closure, concern about bad traits popping up again in the new relationship or someone simply isn’t over the former relationship, “you need to be on alert if your partner is still regularly talking to his or her ex, good or bad. He’s supposed to be spending his time building a solid relationship with YOU. If energy is being expended elsewhere, that’s a red flag. “This is where I tell my clients about strong, straightforward and honest communication, no matter how awkward it may seem. If this person is right for you, the conversations will be comfortable and ultimately make you feel better. If you can’t manage this, then maybe this is a sign that the person is not the right one for you.”

he Yin and the Yang, the light and the dark, the positive and the negative are offered to us in all things, that is duality. Every change, whether it is within us or around us, is a show of duality. It is a picture of choices. We can feel reassured we have a choice one way of the other. However, many times, this only causes or creates confusion. Indeed, choices can be comforting or confusing. That, too, is a duality!! On the other hand, when we feel we don’t have a choice in a matter, or at least believe we don’t have a choice; anger, fear, frustration and stuck-ness surrounds us. That, also, is a duality. These negative aspects can feel overwhelming and insurmountable. If we just simply ask ourselves what is the opposite of anger, it becomes understanding or acceptance. If it is fear, the opposite can be courage. There is the duality again.
Both sides or feelings are involved, it is just not clear at the time of the feeling. We can seek to choose one or the other. There is and always has been a duality in nature, in us, in everything we are involved in, and in our universe. Which means we always have a choice… even though we may not be able to determine what it is. Because duality is universally exhibited in all of creation,parallels can be seen between differing cultural and religious traditions. For example, parallels can be seen between the Chinese Taoist tradition and the Jewish/Hebrew Kabbalistic tradition. As the Yin and Yang are complementary principles, displaying opposition, yet comprised of each other. Yin is a Feminine energy of nurturing, receptivity, compassion. Yang energy is an aggressive/expansiveness, which is Masculine energy. Both types are needed and necessary, a duality, and also a complement to one another. Both traditions seek balance. So, we
can begin to understand that one belief system can and does hold aspects of others. Again, offering a choice even though they may be similar they allow an inflow of energy. Thus, a choice. In relationships, we are attracted to someone who is different, yet there is still a similarity we sense and feel. We are attracted to both the similar and the different---Another duality. In our jobs, we tend to move towards that which we like and feel familiar with. Yet on the other side, we also discover parts of our jobs that are dissimilar and are uncomfortable. The lesson is overcoming our imbalance. When we can realize and accept that there is always a choice in all things, we will free ourselves up for more of what we do want and less of what we don’t want. Duality allows a correcting balance in all things.
In the Blink of an Eye, Life
ometimes your life can change in the blink of an eye, and if you didn’t see what was coming, it can rattle your cage for quite a while afterward. “Drastic” is the word I often use to describe what happened when I was 32 and divorced with two sons. At the time, I had a personal and business relationship with one of my clients and was very much in love with him. We merged our two businesses into one office space and our relationship grew. I was on birth control pills and had been for 12 years. I would have tests every six months to make sure everything was normal, and Dr. G. would take the time to speak to me after each test. I was home one morning, and the phone rang. When I answered it, Dr. G. was on the line to tell me I had cancer of the uterus, it was in stage four and I needed to come to his office so he could explain it to me in detail. My head started spinning and all I could hear was the word “cancer.” I thought I was going to pass out. I think the fact that he broke this devastating news over the phone with no regard to my feelings really upset me more than the appearance of cancer itself. I pulled myself together and told him I would be there the next day. I got off the phone and sat down. I stayed sitting for a while. I was home by myself because my boys had already left for school. I was going to work but I hadn’t been in a hurry. I picked the phone up and called Charlie, whom I had been seeing for three years. I told him what the doctor had said and asked him to go with me the next morning. We met with Dr. G. and he explained everything he possibly could about the “cancer.” He also informed me that I needed to have a hysterectomy—and I had to do it soon. I looked at the doctor and basically said nothing. I just listened while thoughts raced through my mind. How could this be happening? I was speechless. You see, in my heart I knew I was going to have a daughter. I even knew what her name was going to be. A hysterectomy would alter everything I knew to be true about my life and would eliminate the possibility of giving birth to another child. I remember telling the doctor that I would get back to him with my answer because I needed to go home and think. I did more than think. I talked with Charlie that evening and told him I wanted one more baby. I then asked him what his feelings were on this, knowing I was asking for quite a lot. What I have not mentioned is that Charlie was married with four children of his own. I had been the “other woman” for the past three years. I understood what I was doing and, while that did not make it right, he had always indicated that he would leave his wife to marry me. His stated “intention of divorce” is what kept me in the picture. After much conversation, he did agree to allow me to get pregnant if that was what I wanted. I knew above all that I wanted that daughter—the girl who would be called Maiteland after my mother. I had another meeting with Dr. G. to let him know what I wanted to do. I told him I hoped to deliver one more child before the hysterectomy. He was not happy with my decision and gave me many
Changes BY JANET REYNOLDS
warnings. At the same time, he also told me what kind of surgery might help safely deliver a baby, given my cancerous uterus. I never did tell my sons that I had cancer, but I did inform them I needed to have a procedure. Their dad wasn’t in the picture for them and I didn’t want them to think they were going to lose their mother, too. After the surgery I had one more checkup with Dr. G., who let me know that everything looked good, but that there were no guarantees. He informed me that I needed to retain a lawyer for a living will and to find a new doctor were I to get pregnant. Dr. G. had decided to give up his medical practice so he recommended Dr. B., a surgeon who could handle any complications of my pregnancy. The lawyer I would have to find myself. When a doctor tells you to write your will, a rather large lump lodges in your stomach. But I was adamant about continuing with my plan to have another child. I met with Dr. B. who outlined the tests I would need to have over the course of my pregnancy, just to make sure everything was going smoothly. The doctor was also able to recommend an attorney friend of his to handle the living will. Dr. B. put me on another birth control method for a year because he thought that my body needed to recover at least that long from the procedure. I had two miscarriages in the very beginning. It had been 11 years since my last son’s birth and, even though I was healthy, my body was not accepting the pregnancy. It was January and Charlie and I were in New York. I just knew I was pregnant. I remember so vividly being in that hotel room, telling him I was pregnant and asking if he was still onboard with it. I knew he had agreed well over a year ago, but I wanted his feelings on the situation now. I was prepared to do whatever I had to do if he didn’t agree now. He let me know it was fine. You know there are times when things are meant to be, even when situations are hard. I gave birth to my daughter in September of that year. I was happy she was born in September because it was the same month as my own birthday. Exactly as I knew I would – from the time I was eight years old – I named my beautiful daughter “Maiteland Marie.” Three months later, I finally had the hysterectomy. Even in the face of a cancer diagnosis, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Today, I feel I am cured and I am so very thankful for how everything transpired. I still make sure to have the tests on schedule, but decades have now passed, and my daughter has made me a grandmother twice over. When something is meant to be, the Universe somehow lines everything up in our favor. In my case, I had exactly the doctors I needed, who were willing to go along with my wishes. And I am so grateful to my daughter’s father for allowing me to take that chance with his own future. What could have been a death sentence for me ended up bringing new life into this world. And here I am all these years later, adding this milestone to my ongoing life story, which isn’t over yet—not by a long shot.

Our yoga community celebrates your breakthroughs and your growth, so ultimately the whole thing becomes based on a higher purpose, a deeper meaning, and a more profound goal in life and that is consciousness. One aspect of the knowledge needed, which makes this possible, is the knowledge of sacred power objects. In our lives, we had the great privilege to study with a powerful spiritual master, who passed these secrets on to us. Through his wisdom and grace, we learned the practical truths and applications of sacred wisdom as well as how to wash away the clouds of misconceptions and misinterpretations surrounding real sacred wisdom and power, including the misunderstandings in the spiritual community, which exist to this day. We learned how to give direct experience, real experience of the divine. Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one's being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union - the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one's actions.

into Non-Duality & Non-Separation L
ove is the answer and the heart is the connector. Connect to more Source love and light and experience living from the heart center. Peace is the way to experience neutrality in order to experience higher vibrational living. Practice consciously being in peace each moment. Clear the ego mentality, which is separation or limited lower mentality and connect your Soul to your Higher Self. Be in conscious communion with your Spirit or I AM Presence. Practice the pause, become more aware and mindful, let go of the extraneous lower vibrational thinking so that you can receive more intuitive messages from Higher Self and Spirit. As you become aware of discordant thoughts and feelings, you can let them go and alchemize the lower vibrational energies to neutral. As well, practice neutrality so that you become the observer, which allows you to choose versus react to situations or others. This will lessen your creation of discordant energies—thoughts, feelings and actions. Liberate yourself from negative, lower vibrational and limited thinking and belief systems. In this way, no one or no situation has the power to lower your vibration. Learn and use breathing techniques, energy tools, meditation and prayer for letting go, clearing energies, raising vibrations and receiving the highest guidance and assistance. Learn and practice alchemy and using the Violet Flame for transmuting lower vibrations to neutral. Only you can and you can let go of worries, fears, doubts and attachments. Open your heart and mind and know that you can choose and expand consciousness. Take one step at a time and realize it is possible. As you practice alchemy, you will achieve higher vibrational frequency. When the vibrational frequency is higher, the consciousness level steps up higher so that your experiences and relationships come into a newer reality and you begin to
experience more harmony, love, synchronicity and unity. As you have more oneness with Spirit by surrendering your ego will to Divine will for your life, you move from separation and duality to unity consciousness and oneness with Spirit. Then with prayer and meditation practice, you will be connecting to Spirit more, receiving more guidance, messages, assistance, discernment and wisdom. As more vibrational frequency and higher consciousness is achieved, you will be experiencing more flow of Spirit and oneness with all creation and you will begin co-creating with Source energies to fulfill your higher life purpose and destiny. You are on your way to having higher vibrational experiences; it is called ascension from 3D to 5D living. Each person is given free will on this planet and so each person will be at a specific vibrational frequency by choice, whether they are fully aware of it or not. Once you are aware, you can learn, achieve and shift the vibrational frequencies. Because we are in
the beginning of a high evolutionary period on Earth, there is a wider spectrum of vibrational frequencies among people at this time. Allow yourself to flow and know that like frequencies attract like frequencies, so you will be guided and align to come into connection with higher vibrational relationships, partnerships, experiences—a new way of living and co-creating. When you continue to practice living from the heart center and in communion with Spirit—asking, receiving, knowing, taking actions—your reality expands into unity consciousness and living. Knowledge is a key to life. It takes knowledge—Spirit, alchemy, healing, vibrational energy, creation/revelation of mysteries, meditation—to access higher levels of consciousness. There is much to learn. Allow yourself to be curious and ask, seek, knock, learn and expand. Invest in knowledge through books, classes, workshops, seminars and sessions. Two modalities most people are not yet familiar with are Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT) and Myofascial Release (MFR), which are my specialties as a practitioner. SRT is a healing modality to identify and clear discordant energies in the subconscious mind and blocks held at the Soul and Spirit levels. By clearing these energies and blocks, you will experience an acceleration in your gains of vibrational frequency and consciousness expansion. MFR is a hands on healing modality that is done on the physical body to clear the dense, blocked, compressed, painful energies stuck in the fascial matrix of the physical body. When the blocked energies are cleared more and more, the vibrational frequency rises. There is much to learn about and experience. It is an exciting time of growth, ascension and opportunity. These newer pathways of clearing and healing allow you to accelerate, get further on your journey to experience the ascension—raising vibrational frequency, expanding consciousness and continuing the soul’s evolutionary process. It is with an open heart and mind that allows you to know, transform, take action, receive and experience more consciousness expansion, ascension and liberation from separation and duality to unity consciousness. As you are on this ascension path, you will begin to manifest the New Earth reality of the expansion of love, co-creation with Source and evolution.

QSolar &A on My Home ||
here are 2 main types of solar used in Florida; thermal solar which uses the heat from your roof to warm up your pool or fill your hot water tank, and photovoltaic solar which uses photons from the sun to generate electricity. For this article I’m going to answer some of the common questions homeowners ask when they are shopping for a photovoltaic array to reduce their electric bill. Until the end of 2019 there is a 30% federal tax credit that you can get on solar AND a new roof if you install both in the same calendar year. This means that if you get a new a roof for $12,000 and a solar array for another $12,000 (for a total of $24,000) you will get back $7,200 from the federal government. In the last 2 years I’ve helped over 300 homeowners buy solar across seven different counties around Tampa Bay, and there is a 10 kilowatt solar array on my roof in the Stagecoach subdivision in Wesley Chapel.
1. How much will solar cost?
This depends upon 2 factors: the square footage of your roof and the power needs (daily kilowatt usage) of your home. My parents live in a new home in Wesley Chapel, and the cost of their system after the federal tax credit was $8,000. That system eliminated $110 per month in energy costs, and their payment on their system at a 4% loan is $78 per month. Instead of paying $110 per month to the electric company my parents are sending $78 per month to pay off their solar array. If financed, solar is always less expensive than paying the electric company, and solar adds to the value of your home.
if you sell during a deep recession you might not see this kind of gain. I live in a home valued at $220,000, my solar array generates $2400 per year in electricity, that’s $24,000 generated in the next decade. My system was $16,000 after the federal tax rebate, so my solar array will pay for itself in less than 7 years. If I sell my home in the future for just 2% more I’ll pocket $4,500 and walk away very happy.
3. How does the Federal Tax Credit on solar work?
The federal tax credit is 30% of the cost of any solar array on a home or business excluding solar pool heaters, which are considered a luxury purchase by the IRS. The credit can be used for solar hot waters heaters for the home, solar pool pumps and any photovoltaic array. The 30% tax credit for solar expires on December 31rst, 2019. This is a TAX CREDIT, so you can’t use it unless you pay taxes to the federal government. If your annual household income is below $30,000 per year it might take you several years to use your tax credit. For instance, if you only pay $3,000 per year in federal taxes and you get a solar tax credit for $9,000 it will have to carry forward three years for you to recoup the full $9,000. The solar tax credit is dollar for dollar, if you own a business and pay taxes at the end of the year you can use the tax credit instead of writing a check to Uncle Sam. In this case you might owe $10,000 for 2018, but you had solar installed and you have a tax credit for $7,000. Send in the tax credit and $3,000 and you are paid up.
4. How does my solar array work at night?
It doesn’t. A solar array in Florida will generate power (even on a cloudy day) from about 8AM until sundown. Most of the systems we install are net metered to the power grid; during the day the system generates more than you need and these extra kilowatts are pushed back to the grid via a bi-directional meter installed by the electric company. These banked kilowatts are like rollover minutes on a cell phone, during the winter my system produces more than I need and these kilowatts are credited to my bill. In the summer when I crank up my AC my stored bank of kilowatts comes back to me.
5. What about during a power outage?
If you install an SMA inverter you will have power from your solar during the day, even if the electric company goes dark. I have the SMA system on my home, it gives me 4,000 watts during peak sunlight during an outage. Some inverters do NOT have this capability, namely SolarEdge and Enphase systems. If you want a 24 hour battery back-up system you’ll spend $15,000 to $25,000 for the batteries alone. Battery costs will come down in the next few years, however. If you have any other questions please reach out to me at 813-391-3895. BEN ALEXANDER Sales Director TAMPABAYSOLAR.COM
2. OK, how much will solar add to the value of my home? A quick Google search on this subject will point you to several different studies made across 40 states that demonstrate how solar increases the resale of a home from 3% to 10%. Of course, 18

e are witnessing a movement, a shift in mindfulness practices and holistic natural, functional, and integrative medicine. Systematic study of self-reports suggests that an individual’s belief systems, expectancies, and assumptions exert a strong influence on his/her state of well-being. Thus, the shifting belief systems of our populations, as part of a growing universal consciousness, contribute to the overall well-being of human beings and move us forward on a path to wellness. It is my belief that we are all connected with a universal source that fuels our growth spiritually, vibrationally, energetically, and physiologically. Yet the way we communicate differentiates and divides, before it generalizes. We talk of a white woman rather than a woman who is white, or an autistic child rather than a child who has autism. Each of us has much to contribute to the expansion of our realm of consciousness. The subliminal concern is the mindset inherent in our tendency to prioritize by the order of the terms such that we are initially focused on dividers, such as race, disability, or the like, rather than the basic humanity of the individual. Due to this kind of prioritization in our language and culture, we are inclined to note the differences first, rather than the commonality. Thus, we define us-and-them rather than seeing ourselves as interconnected, or simply us. As our cultural understanding of the divide has grown, we have begun to understand more of the improvements we need in order to focus on seeking first to understand (per Steven Covey). By focusing our efforts on understanding the other person first, clarifying and verifying our mutual understanding, we further the cause of peace, civility, and serenity. We move away from us-and-them to us as an intermingling, overlapping, and interdependent whole. What if the energy we put into sewing division went into finding commonalities? Although, at a deep level, there is a kind of duality that does exist for us as energy beings, since we convert from energy to matter frequently each second at the smallest levels of function in our bodies. We are as much waves of energy as we are conglomerations of particles. This duality actually merges us into a common energy source which ties us all together in a way that we can perceive if we really tune in. If only this kind of convergence of overlapping energies were visible to the naked eye, perhaps our divisions would evaporate. To be healthy and well we need energy, it is the core of our existence, and channeling that energy through positive filters helps us thrive. Negative energy drains us of our well-being, while positive energy encourages and uplifts all of us. We are in need of an infusion of positive energy into our society, a type of energy that neutralizes anger, dissension, and animosity. We are capable of much happiness and contentedness if we can allow positive energies to flow and disavow the draining negative energies of the would-be invaders of our inherently positive spirits. _______________________________________ DR.

t this time, I ask the Cosmos to provide wisdom to the reader. According to law of attraction, sex is the closest thing to pure alignment with Source for most people because you are void of thought, spurred by instinct or intuition, and when it is a co-creative stance it feels like a wonderful experience. Ultimately, you are using each other as a vessel to get or not get “replenishment” from Source but you never actually get it from each other. You always get the replenishment directly from Source. In knowing this, be satisfied with the idea of it whether it is present or not, and then the replenishment can remain unhindered. But what happens when the relationship itself loses the magic and why do we lose that magic? In the beginning of most relationships, desire is very strong and both persons are closest to the version of their true vibrational self. With time, partners are confronted with reality and the consequences of reality and begin to lose focus on their own truest version. Instead of accepting responsibility for their own self-alignment, they assign that responsibility to their partner demanding that they remain unchanged from the moment of the magical co-creative stance. When you assign this responsibility out, you can never remain in a

The Art of Being Kind
So many gods, so many creeds, So many paths that wind and wind, While just the art of being kind Is all the sad world needs. ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox
have recently been witnessing in my own life how powerful an act of kindness can be and how much fun it can be. I take my garbage cans out to the curb every Sunday night because the trash collectors come early on Monday morning. For the past few months when I go out to the curb on Monday to put the cans back alongside my house, they are not there. Someone has mysteriously and very stealthily moved them back by the side of the house where they are stored. Now, I have heard about people in the drive-through line paying for someone else’s coffee at Starbucks, or the fare at a toll booth, but never have I heard of acts of “trash can” kindness! I suspect it is one of my neighbors and I must admit it’s really got my attention. What his or her motivation is I don’t know, but I am interpreting it as a generous and selfless act of kindness. There is something very empowering about extending kindness to others, especially when it can be done anonymously. This simple act of kindness has me thinking a lot lately about how we as human beings coexist together, not just as neighbors, but as passengers on this ever-shrinking “spaceship called planet earth” as referred to by Buckminster Fuller. Our differences are so vast in so many ways. Between cultural values and traditions, nationalities, religions, politics, and so on, we can feel very isolated at times. Kindness can be the bridge that connects us because it is something to which every human being on the planet can relate. An act of kindness is easily understood and can supersede any language, religious or cultural gap. In that regard, kindness can be thought of a universal language we all can speak--with our actions. The ancient philosopher Philo of Alexandria (20 AD - 50 AD) said, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” It seems some things in the human realm never change. Times have never been tougher than they are right now for the majority of people, and the “normal” tendency in tough times may be to withdraw from others because we are so consumed
by our own fears, concerns and problems. However, when we withdraw, that’s when a sense of isolation comes flooding in. And, yet, if we think about it, a simple act of kindness to another can instantly reconnect them to life in ways we may never know. Just think about that. Youract of kindness could be the bridge that another needs at that moment to get them through the day. And, irrespective of the simplicity of the act you may think you are extending to others, universally speaking, there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act of kindness creates a ripple effect which reaches out far beyond your act. That’s the empowering thing about kindness--when we receive kindness we are naturally inspired to extend it to others. Perhaps Ella Wheeler Wilcox was right. The world needs more kindness, but with whom and where does it begin? Perhaps by practicing the art of being kind you might just be the one to change the world. It could be while standing in line at the grocery store by inviting the person behind you to go ahead of you. It might be by holding a door open for someone. It could be as simple as a welcoming smile...or, if you really want to see your neighbor go a bit batty, try the stealth “trash can kindness” maneuver. Any way you slice it, a deeper experience of kindness is what we all inherently desire. We are hardwired for kindness because it is in our spiritual DNA to treat one another with reverence and loving kindness. We just have to be mindful of the spiritual beings we really are and the acts of kindness will follow naturally with grace and ease, not because we should be kind, but because we can. To this end I close with one of my favorite quotes by the Dalai Lama: “This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” I rather like that philosophy. How about you?

t is everywhere. You hear about it on the television, on the radio, social media, in emails and invitations for webinars! The Gut has gotten so popular that many people are becoming more aware about the gut and their poop! Traditional doctors are rethinking the importance of the gut. I got excited years ago when a gastrointestinal doctor started sending me his patients for colonoscopy preps. The timing was perfect when I was invited into his office. I learned a lot from being in a traditional doctor’s office and I am forever grateful. Today many traditional doctors are suggesting that their patients take probiotics and eat more vegetables. Here are some facts that you may not have heard about the gut. • The gut is known as the second brain. It can function independently from the brain. In fact, nine messages are sent from the gut to the brain whereas the brain sends one message to the gut. You have over 100 million brain cells in your gut!!! Who does the thinking or controls your emotions? • The Vagus Nerve, is the 10th cranial nerve, I call it the main conductor because it’s the body’s major parasympathetic nerve that effects the head, neck, chest and abdomen. It helps regulate your heart rate, blood pressure, sweating, speaking and digestion. 80-90% of your immune system is on your GUT. • You have the same neurotransmitters in your Gut as in your brain. More commonly known neurotransmitters are serotonin and dopamine. • The bacteria in the colon. I was amazed that three pounds of bacteria reside in the colon. My mentor, Brenda Watson talked about this thirty years ago! • Your colon is a four-layer muscle that expands and contracts. It is a long as you are tall. However, do not let that statement fool you. With many years of experience and working with GI doctors, not all colons are not created equal. Let’s look at the colon and a condition that 63 million Americans suffer from…. CONSTIPATION. What is constipation? Constipation can be

defined as irregular or incomplete bowel movements that are difficult to pass. According to the medical community, the normal length of time between bowel movements will vary widely from person to person, some people will go three times daily while others may eliminate a few times a week. Traditional doctors feel that it depends on the person and three times weekly is okay. As a Colon Hydro therapist, three bowel movements a day is ideal, however; a bowel movement daily is considered good in today’s world. Think of it, if you’re eating three meals daily , that is 1095 meals yearly and you have one bowel movement daily, where are the other three 730 meals? Does it make you wonder? Are all those large guts full of fat, gas or/and poop!? What causes constipation? There are many possibilities, so it could be more than one cause. Some of those possible causes include the lack of fiber, lack of physical activity, physiology, emotional upset, poor diet, medications, food sensitivities, allergies, scar tissue and more. As a result of the various causes, constipation is not always easy to remedy and each person is different. It’s just like our lifestyles and how we handle stress; Stress can be held in the body anywhere – in the neck, the back and the gut.
Let’s Talk About Poop, baby!
Everyone poops, so why isn’t it a part of everyday conversation? I Think back to when we potty trained our children and were so excited when they went on the potty. Well, we should continue that excitement throughout our life! Afterall, if we do not have bowel movements, that toxic material will be absorbed back into our body. We could be swimming in a toxic mess. Here is an interesting fact about poop. Did you know that the color and size of your bowel movements can give you information about yourself? The easiest to recognize is dehydration. Usually the stool is like balls or very hard. For more information, you can look on line, Bristle Stool Chart. Another topic that is coming out of the dark
- Gas. It is wonderful how our bodily functions are coming out in the open. After all, we all do the same things and will not admit it! I recently read an article about flatulence more commonly known as farts. My grandson is at the age where farts are fun. When I told him that he could fart as much as he wanted he was confused. In other places farts are frowned upon and considered rude. It is a normal bodily function. We fart 10-17 times daily. Sometimes I have a symphony at my house with the grandkids….lol Since we are on the topic of gas, do you know what causes gas? From my perspective there is never one thing that causes something else. There are always possibilities. Here are some culprits of gas: chewing gum, drinking carbonated drinks, chewing your food too fast, lactose intolerant, food allergies and more. The interesting thing about gas is that it travels at its own pace through the colon. It can actually cause stool to back up. A client shared with me that he had to take his child to the emergency because they were complaining of terrible pain. The x-ray revealed they had a gas pocket in her colon. Another client come in recently complaining of being bloated and gassy. When they shared with me what they ate, I thought her stomach was a dumpster! We are not always thinking about the food we ingest and how they combine their foods. When we drink sugary drinks and/or milk on top of meat, carbohydrates what would you expect? Cows can handle milk just great. Humans on the other hand only have 1 stomach, cows have 4! Also, greens have more calcium then milk and we can digest it so much easier. So, you see, we are becoming more aware about our health and bodies. We might think about how our body is our home ….so let’s love our colon and body. After all it is the only one we have.

Fill your life with people, activities and thoughts that keep you on a path of bliss. When you’re focus on gratitude, everything else will start to fall into place for you.
CAPRICORN Dec. 22nd – Jan. 19th It’s a perfect month for creative visualization. See yourself living your dreams in your meditation time. Take it a step further and really feel what it will be like to live that reality! Then your challenge will be to carry that emotion into your “regular” life. Be vigilant about negative thoughts that poop on your future desires. Habitual patterns can dismantle what you’re attempting to build. Use compassionate determination to say “No!” to the old ways and passion to say “Yes!” to the new. Connecting with your vision all day improves all areas of your life!
Jan. 20th – Feb. 18th
April 20th – May 20th
Financial concerns clear up as Neptune moves direct. You’ll have results pouring in with money, and also with self-esteem and relationships. You can even figure out a solution to a weird health issue. Breakthroughs in meditation create a deep sense of connection with the Universe and others around you. This is awesome because you often feel isolated, even though people see you as a social butterfly. If single you can meet a parter who links with your values and you also have tons of fun with. Longterm love also smoothes out if already bonded.
Jupiter changing signs helps heal deep issues about financial abundance. Meditate on what beliefs limit your financial flow and work to challenge and overcome those false concepts. Also ponder how you harbor resentments or fears about emotional betrayal. How do those past wounds block you from present love? Be kind to your body by eating well, getting enough rest and practicing stress reduction. You’ll be more productive even if you take time from work for self care.
Feb. 19th – March 20th
May 21st– June 20th
Mars, the planet of life direction, enthusiasm and confidence, moves into your sign! These next two months focus and empower you. You’ll accomplish goals with career, relationships and personal growth. Meditation helps you feel internally solid.

You’ll gracefully keep your spiritual and emotional center. Issues around trust and finances resolve. You can even get a major promotion or a amazing new job with Jupiter’s shift of sign!
This is a great career month! Problems at work clear up, and you can even get a raise or bonus. If changing jobs, you’ll be challenged in a fun way and be welcomed by everyone there. November is also an awesome relationship time. If partnered, longterm issues can be resolved so you have smooth sailing and lightheartedness. If single, you can meet someone who really matches your values, but also your sense of fun. Enjoy everything life is bringing your way!
June 21st – July 22nd
Venus and Neptune move direct, clearing up months of relationship confusion. Meditate on how to stay balanced about hopes and expectations vs. reality, whether about relationships, career, or whatever. Communication is key so there will be no assumptions. Also use your creative skills to visualize important life goals, and make sure to take action steps so they actually manifest! It’s time to renew spirituality, so make efforts to be still and meditate. What seems boring will become an excited inward adventure!
This month is about healing relationships. Meditation reveals areas where old hurts, betrayal and resentments have blocked the flow of love. Surround painful memories with compassion and they will melt away. Practice gratitude with people you’re involved with and so much will shift. A grateful heart draws loving new partners if single. You’ll also open inner doors to financial prosperity. If you have children, those relationships feel guided and blessed as well. And please forgive and love yourself because you are wonderful!
VIRGO August 23 to September 22 Meditate to be able to As Neptune moves direct, meditate on retaining yours individuality as you interact with others. It’s ok to have different ideas from loved ones. Ponder how conflict can be a loving force that helps both of you evolve, grow and trust each other more. Jupiter changing signs improves your work life. Maybe you’ll get a new job or have positive shifts in your current situation. Also, think kind thoughts about your body and appearance. Focus on the miracle of how your body serves you and functions well. And tell yourself you’re beautiful, because you are!
ARIES March 21st – April 19th
LEO July 23 – August 22
As Jupiter and Mars change signs, ponder how you can bring your spirituality into all areas of your life. It’s one thing to feel connected with the love and abundance of the Universe while meditating, but how do you feel while at work and under pressure? Can you be forgiving to someone you encounter daily who really irritates you? Practice being kind and gentle to yourself, even when your unconscious habit is to beat yourself up. This will open all kinds of doors to joy and fulfillment!
LIBRA Sept. 23rd – Oct. 22nd Venus, the planet of love, moves direct and gives you a new lease on life! As your ruling planet, it helps you strengthen your self-esteem, health, relationships and finances. Mars changing signs offers new work opportunities and a sense of enthusiasm with career. Jupiter’s shift of sign brightens your mood. Read about the enormous benefits of gratitude and make that a spiritual practice.

Does a Relentless
or a Benevolent Approach Best Equip You for the
Duality of Life & Work? We live in a world where everything moves and evolves at a seemingly un-
by Nia Kaye
stoppable pace. We often describe our lives as rollercoasters - with numerous ups and downs - and if you aren’t strapped in, you will fall to the wayside. But is this relentless pace conducive to longterm productivity, health and happiness? The U.S. is renowned for, on the whole, terrible worker benefits. The school system seems to adopt an all-or-nothing approach - with ridiculously long summers and very little time off between semesters. This contrasts to the U.K. where summers are 6 weeks long and there are weekly/fortnightly breaks roughly every 6-8 weeks. The fact that children are treated here like worker bees still astounds me and I fail to see the benefit of not giving them more frequent breaks. In my workout regime, I have been implementing ‘reloads’ every 4-6 weeks; a week where I scale back the intensity and volume to allow my body to recover. Not only have I noticed a difference in my mobility of subsequent workouts, (enabling me to ‘be better’ at my workouts), but I have also found short, frequent breaks have helped me break through plateaus. I have noticed similar results with children too; you can tirelessly teach a child a concept in a multitude of ways, but sometimes a step back, and a break, can help so much in ensuring the learning is concrete. But how about if I took a 3 month hiatus from exercise? Would I come back expecting and able to deliver the same results in my training? Of course not, I would be starting at a point with a rusty skillset and a decrease in strength and productivity. So how do we expect children here to make any progress in the first couple of months of a new school year? What we might perceive as progress is likely not true progress, just progression from regression. In the corporate world, typically employees are given 2 weeks vacation time here and an assigned number of sick days. In the U.K., typical starting benefits are 4 weeks vacation with no assigned sick days; if you’re ill, you take a day off and any long periods of absence require a doctor’s note. Other places in Europe start off with even more vacation time. Does this mean Europeans are less productive, healthy and happy? Of course not. I would describe working conditions far less turbulent and volatile, with people not constantly afraid that a day off will lead them to either working on it or making up the time at a weekend (guilty as charged!) But does this relentless approach in the U.S. inspire people to propel forwards or does it cause unnecessary stress and result in people retreating back to safety? Here, there seems to be the perception that employment is a privilege and that you should ‘be grateful’ for what opportunities arise. Why? I believe employment is a right. We all need money to survive and employment should be available to anyone who wants it. This perception of gratefulness is far from the inspirational foundation you surely want your employees to have? Implementing basic fundamental contingencies - like increased vacation time or no pre-assigned sick days - provides accommodation for some of the relentless ups and downs of life and work. Putting people on a relentless hamster wheel with the expectation that ‘no days off’ equip you with the capacity to cope with life as a rollercoaster is simply not an approach conducive to health, happiness or productivity. I am often questioned about how I do all that I do, and I have made a determined effort to implement more down time in recent weeks. Have I achieved anything less? No. In fact my body and my mind thank me for it. Duality of life will always exist. But how are you approaching it? NOVEMBER 2018
Consciousness Duality? I
s there consciousness duality? Is there one part of our consciousness that stays positive about life, and other part of our consciousness that creates any negative thoughts that brings fear or other unwanted feelings? Each of us lives a different reality that it is put together by the way we think and see things, which will lead to our reactions towards events around us. We build this reality by sending vibrations to the Universe and attracting experiences and people that we think about. Is this contrast between positive and negative thinking separated within our minds? Positive and negative thoughts create vibrations that attract the experiences that we live in our day to day basis, and also attract people that will match those vibrations that we are sending out. This is the Law of Attraction. You attract that which you think about. You attach a feeling to your thought, and that feeling sends out a vibration that attracts similar vibrations. It is our awareness towards our thoughts what helps us change the experiences in our lives. It is a non-duality of consciousness. It is when we ask or establish in our thoughts that which we want or desire that we start sending these vibrations. Do you expect something bad to happen to you? Then you are sending out a vibration that will attract that which you are expecting or similar. Do you hold a positive hope for something or someone to come into your life? Then you are sending a positive vibration that will attract that which you are hoping for or similar. It is that simple, but, at times, it can feel that complicated as well. It is a matter of purposely teaching your mind to ask or wish for what you really want, not that which you wish to keep away from your life experience. Understanding this non-duality within our consciousness will help us achieve our soul’s purpose in life. It is
within our consciousness that we can decide to either feel good or feel bad about our own existence and life experiences. It is our own thoughts that lead us through the current path that we are in at the time. If we choose to think and feel good and put aside any negative thinking, we are allowing our life experiences to be of purpose to us. It is all about how we feel and the vibrations that we radiate through our feelings. What happens after understanding the non-duality of consciousness? Once we reach this understanding and open the door to our soul’s evolution, our consciousness reaches its own essence in life and proceeds to Ascension, moving from our present reality in 3D to 4D, and finally 5D consciousness, in which everything is love and unity. Once one has reached 5D consciousness, there is no space in the mind for negative thoughts as everything is lived in the now and every experience is fulfilled with one’s true purpose in life. How can we allow this non-duality to sink in and help us proceed into 5D consciousness? One simple exercise is to act ‘as if.’ When we think and act ‘as if’, holding and living that positive thought as it is happening in the moment, our vibration rises up and attracts other similar vibrations into our reality. As we become aware of this process and make it a habit to live by this concept, we continue to achieve more positive thoughts that lead to the reality that we are wishing for, leaving no space for the negative thinking that would otherwise attract that which we do not want. Therefore, by understanding the non-duality of our consciousness, we allow our souls to reach its higher levels of consciousness and live a reality that would fulfill our soul’s purpose in this present life time.

is the human consciousness part of us. It was designed to ensure our security and survival. Unfortunately, for many of us it has never relinquished its initial purpose Ego can be more understood by its association with the fight or flight section of the brain. Some behavior was imprinted into our genetic makeup and was designed to protect the ‘I’ part of us; and make sure our needs were met. When our needs and desires were not met, the ego devised patterns of behavior to get what we wanted. Some of these learned behaviors are ego patterns that are deeply rooted in fear and the underlying belief is that there is a threat to the ‘I’ or ego. It is these behaviors that are locked into emotional states of being and are playing out in our life as: manipulation, enmity, lying, tantrums, anger, jealousy, violence, indifference, frustration, hate, etc. The memory may not have anything to do with the situation at hand but the ego only knows one course of action, protect the ‘I’, little ego. As an adult, we experience an event and regardless of the situation, we unconsciously revert to a past emotional reaction. The constant unconscious movement into these states of being have us reliving the same story over and over again. We have all seen adults who resort to childish behaviors. They have temper tantrums in the office. Resort to lying when they have been caught with their hand in the cookie jar. They use guilt and manipulation to get their way. They bully. All of these are ways that individuals who are now adults have learned to get their needs and desires met. Somewhere in their development, the adults around them never taught them to factor love into the equation. Instead, these habits of response erupt into repeated behavior patterns when the memory of previous circumstances brings these modes of behavior to the surface. There are, however, some among us who live lives in loveless states of being. These individuals will project their anger and fears onto other individuals unconsciously. Then there are times when these individuals are mirroring back to you a loveless state of being that is within us. Our assignment this lifetime is to recognize this, adjust our understanding, and re-arrange our ego-self to a higher Ego self-a higher consciousness. One of compassion, understanding, acceptance that all is in Divine order. In order to be the creator of our reality, we must factor love into our ego experience and deal with each moment as new. It is when we do this that we take control of our ego and our higher Ego emerges to allow us to move through states of being that we want to experience, then release. We will then attract more harmonious and balanced situations. Then, you have achieved a higher Divine Ego consciousness. Therefore, the real purpose of the ego is to guide us to a higher more loving state of being, looking at ourselves and all others as moving along a path to a harmonious, balanced life. NOVEMBER 2018

denote what seems to be opposites in appearances, aspects or functions. Examples of dualities are bad and good, war and peace, dark and light, masculine and feminine, yin and yang, beauty and ugly, happy and sad, etc.. Duality leads to the triune, meaning that the two (duality) leads to a new condition, thus the one plus one (two opposites) leads to creation of a third new and different condition. What could this mean? An example might be that chaos (the clash of two opposing forces) leads to a new order. Wars, for example, lead to eventual peace- thus illustrating how the clash of the two (dualities) creates the new situation. Arguments, drama, emotional clashes, originate within a duality, usually egobase conflicts, and are eventually resolved - leading to multiple outcomes to include but not limited to: increased animosity, non-resolution, or possibly peace with or without harmony. In nature, there is a constant cycle of dual conditions leading to new cycles. An example is that plants need darkness in order to germinate from seed, and then the light to stimulate photosynthesis and further growth. Some plants need a specific period of darkness to bloom- and if there is too much light, there is a delay in the blooming. Some plants (Cereus cactus) bloom in darkness and then as light grows, retracts its flowers. Thus, he duality of light and dark and the lesson (third part of the process) of balance of both for plant growth. Thus duality is the foundation of three, with three being a most significant number or aspect in cultures worldwide. The number three in tarot, is seen as creation, or the growth and completion of earlier projects or in the I Ching, as beginning energy. In fact, the pinyin (Chinese symbol) for three represents the seed below the ground, the ground and also new growth above the soil. We can then see that in life there is synthesis which faces antithesis, which then results in new synthesis (changes). In other words, out of chaos is birthed the new. All things changes, thus the Book of Changes (I Ching) is so appropriately named. It is an endless cycle of change and growth on all levels- all starting with the apparent duality of the One splitting into two aspects of the feminine and masculine. We humans are seen as existing between the Heaven (masculine) energies and the Earth (feminine) energies. The bottom line, is that life is transitory, everything changes, and nothing lasts permanently. The lesson is to learn how to balance and learn how to grow and love with these energies. One of the most powerful ways to balance the energies is to become aware of the cycles that pervade our existence, and to learn how to control our reactions to the cycles- namely through love. Meditation is a powerful tool, as is contemplation and simply relaxing and being quiet. Using the tools at our disposal – dreamwork, self-hypnosis, autogenic training, meditation, contemplation, energy work such as reiki, qigong, neigong, yoga -all of which actually change our brain and the way we see and react to the changes -- can be effectively employed with our intention and desire. While we are not all saints and prophets, it is possible to practically apply these and learn to live in the fulfilling flow of life. Intuition and imagination can become highly developed which affords spiritual enlightenment. Thus, a zen-like or calm demeanor and way of being can be ours. This helps us face the ever changing complexities of everyday life- and to help others through our peaceful energies. So, in summary, we are all, universally, affected by apparent (perceived) dualistic conflicts and the way we apply our energies to each situation is the key to a more balanced, flowing , and aware existence. The result is and will be, happier and more joyful lives!

What to Plant
Annuals/Bedding plants: Create a display of fall colors with cool-season plants. Some examples include pansy, viola, snapdragon, dianthus, cape daisy, and alyssum. Bulbs: Many bulbs like to get their start in cool weather. Bulbs to plant this month include amaryllis, crinum, and daylily. Herbs: Continue planting herbs from seeds or plants. A wide variety of herbs prefer cool, dry weather, including cilantro, parsley, sage, and thyme. Vegetables: Continue planting cool-season crops, such as beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrot, kale, and lettuce.
What to Do
Perennials: Divide and replant overgrown perennials and bulbs now so that they establish before the cold weather arrives. Lawn disease: Watch for brown patch and large patch. These fungal diseases cause areas of grass to turn brown. Since treatment is difficult, prevention with proper cultural practices is key. These diseases become active when the soil temperature, measured 2–4 in. deep, is between 65°F and 75°F and go dormant when the weather warms in May. Scale insects: Take advantage of lower temperatures to apply horticultural oil sprays to control scale insects. Irrigation: Turn off systems and water only if needed. Plants need less supplemental watering in cooler weather. Poinsettias: Watch for hornworms on poinsettias planted in the landscape. This pest can quickly defoliate the plant; handpick or treat only the infested area.
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.”
