Letter from the Editor

Tara L. Robinson, editor@wholelivingjournal.com

Wings to Fly “The problem with my life was that it was someone else᾿s idea.” ~ Benjamin Alire Sáenz, author Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe s I write this, I wonder how many of you reading this letter can relate to the feeling of living someone else’s idea of your life. I wonder how many Whole Living Journal readers have dreams they’ve yet to realize. Whether it’s fear of failure or fear of success holding you back, the truth is that there is a world-wide epidemic of insanely talented people out there who have one excuse or another for not stepping into their greatness.

A

others who can help make their dream a reality. We know all sorts of people in many different professions and industries. We provide a super-duper platform for making dreams visible through advertisements and articles in WLJ. We help dreams go viral with Facebook mentions and Twitter tweets. We give a voice to dreams and send them over the air waves on the radio (talk about flying!) We even host events so our readers can share their dreams with others in a group setting.

Give Your Dream Wings

We Bet...You Want to Help Others

That’s why I’m so excited about our new “Give Your Dream Wings” campaign. When the idea hit, it felt like, “Of course, that’s exactly what we do! We are in the business of giving dreams wings.” What does that mean exactly? It means that in everything we do and produce…Whole Living Journal magazine, weekly radio interviews with local and national leading authors and thinkers, Infusion’s monthly community gatherings…the common mission of each activity is to provide information, experiences, and support to help all those we reach live healthy, happy lives so they can actively live the life of their dreams, and stop living a life that is someone else’s idea. We help give dreams wings so they can fly.

Why do we do all this? Well, here’s a secret. Dr. Norm Shealy said during a recent interview on our show that the number one need in humans is to help other people. There’s a very good chance that your dream has something to do with helping others. And that’s something we definitely want to support. Have you thought about advertising your dream business but weren᾿t sure where to start? Well, now᾿s the time. We᾿re offering 20% off all rates and we have a full service design team who can help create an ad you᾿ll love. Plus, you᾿ll have access to all our other connections and your dream will be flying in no time.

Infused with Passion - Be a World-Changer Introduce Your Dream to the World Many dreams are snuggled up tight inside a cocoon where they are nice and warm…and safe. Maybe your dream feels like an intimate best friend because you know it so well, but have you considered introducing your friend to the world? Dreams aren᾿t meant to stay hidden in a cocoon, they have a life of their own. And when it᾿s time for them to spread their wings and fly, keeping them safe inside the cocoon is like trying to keep a race horse at a starting gate. Do you have an emerging dream just waiting to take flight? Don’t hold back any longer. Your dream is a good dream. It deserves to be taken seriously and handled seriously. Your dream is worth it. YOU are worth it.

Give Your Dream the Royal Treatment We always get out of life results in proportion to what we invest into it. So, if you have a dream but just kinda tell people in your inner circle about it, those are exactly the kind of half-hearted results you are going to get. However, if you commit to really stepping into your dream in a big way and giving it the exposure it deserves, then the results will align with your actions. How can you give your dream the treatment it deserves? Easy peasy. We support people every day in getting their dreams off the ground. We connect people all the time with

Our newest project is the facilitation of Infusion, which I’m totally jazzed about. Infusion is for world-changers. The goal of Infusion is: shining powerfully together so we can light up this city. It᾿s where the brightest game-changers in town, the adventurers and revolutionaries, gather to share ideas about living with passion and purpose, in the space where dreams fly. If you had five minutes to talk about your passion, what would you say? Infusion Ignites on Sept. 10th will be an open discussion about how to be a mover and a shaker in our city and in our world. Aren᾿t sure what your passion is yet? That᾿s okay, Infusion is for seekers. It᾿s the perfect opportunity to be inspired to learn, do and be more. We each are equipped with great power to change our world...our immediate world within our circle of family, friends, school, and work...but also our world at large. Are you ready to step into your power? I hope you᾿ll join us as we bring our lights together. It begins with a spark, but together we can ignite it into a full blown bonfire. Guaranteed to shake things up and rattle the walls of perceived limitations, Infusion meets every 2nd Tuesday at Rohs Street Cafe in Clifton, 6:30-7:30pm. Find us on Facebook for more information: Infusion Cincinnati. Looking forward to soaring with you,

Reader Feedback “Just read the most recent Whole Living Journal...totally inspired! Pretty sure you put together one of the greatest publications on the planet!” Brad Buechner Hyde Park, OH “I have been reading Whole Living Journal since its inception 10 years ago. I have happily observed how you have grown WLJ into the best publication of its kind! There are glossier publications, some filled cover to cover with articles written by internationally renowned spiritual leaders and healers, but WLJ connects OUR community of spiritual leaders and healers. In fact, it helps CREATE community here in the Cincinnati area. We have wonderful healers and spiritual teachers and counselors right here to help us on our journeys. WLJ connects seekers to them, and connects them to each other. WLJ, and all you do around this publication, has nurtured and grown our spiritual/healing community, and educated many new seekers, with eyes to see and ears to hear.” Stacey Leigh Mohr Received via email

Thyroid Dysfunction

The Sneaky Culprit of Many Health by Dr. Sachin Patel

Problems

T

he thyroid gland is a but-

terfly shaped gland located on the front of the neck just below the Adam’s apple. It is responsible for the production of thyroid hormones, T4 and T3. These hormones regulate virtually every metabolic process in the body. In fact, almost every cell in the body has receptor sites for thyroid hormones. This is why thyroid hormone function and metabolism is extremely important in one’s health and why when a patient has a thyroid problem there can be seemingly vague symptoms that affect everything from brain health to weight gain. Below is a list of symptoms that can result from thyroid related problems: • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Fatigue Increased sensitivity to cold Constipation Dry skin Unexplained weight gain Puffy face Hoarseness Muscle weakness Elevated blood cholesterol level Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness Pain, stiffness or swelling in joints Heavy or irregular menstrual periods Thinning hair Slowed heart rate Depression Impaired memory Brain fog Thinning outer eyebrow and many more

Undiagnosed Thyroid Problems It is estimated that over 30 million Americans suffer from thyroid dysfunction, many undiagnosed or mis-diagnosed. Those suffering from thyroid dysfunction may actually have an auto-immune condition known as

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis that is often overlooked. Hashimoto’s Disease Markers for Hashimoto’s disease are rarely tested because there is no drug to fix the problem. Instead, the root cause is commonly ignored or missed and prescription hormones are prescribed. Over time the dosage tends to increase as symptoms continue to worsen. Many doctors will not run the appropriate tests to fully evaluate the thyroid because it does not change the treatment plan. This leaves the patient and the doctor in the dark with respect to the causative factors or metabolic road blocks. New Approach is Needed This archaic approach to managing thyroid health is inadequate and can result in years of suffering. It should be noted that the thyroid never breaks down in isolation. It is usually a victim of other forces that are interfering with its function. These forces may include poor diet, high stress, inflammation, immune imbalances liver dysfunction and digestive disorders to name a few. There are actually 10 steps involved in proper thyroid hormone metabolism. Many of these steps can be directly evaluated through laboratory testing and others can be assessed through indirect markers and lifestyle evaluation (diet, stress, exercise, sleep, etc.). Other Systems Important to Proper Thyroid Function Proper thyroid hormone metabolism and activation requires that several other systems are working properly, these include the pituitary gland, the liver, the digestive system and the adrenals to name a few. The thyroid gland also

September-October 2013

relies on other key players for thyroid hormone to be utilized properly. This is why a comprehensive strategy that looks at the bigger picture produces superior outcomes for those that have thyroid hormone related issues. Right Doctor Makes the Difference Find a doctor that will work very closely with you and evaluate the required markers for better assessment of thyroid hormone metabolism. After this assessment your doctor is capable of developing a comprehensive lifestyle strategy that addresses the root cause of the dysfunction. This strategy will not only help improve the functioning and metabolism of thyroid hormones but will fundamentally improve the health of all the cells in your body, thus restoring your health and vitality. About the author: Dr. Patel is a Functional and Lifestyle Medicine practitioner, author and speaker. He takes a highly personalized approach to prevent the development of chronic disease and improve the health of his patients using customized laboratory testing combined with personalized lifestyle interventions. 513.785.0686, email at drpatel@becomeproof.com or visit www.IsItMyThyroid.com.

10 Signs You Believe It᾿s Wrong by Mike Bundrant

I

f you are missing out on your share of happiness, you may have unconscious beliefs that make it impossible to experience happiness. In fact, at some level you may simply believe that being happy is wrong. Here are 10 signs this may be true.

1. When you do feel happy, you feel anxious that

it won’t last. Happiness is so unfamiliar to some that they don’t trust it. If, when you begin to feel happy, you also feel anxious that something bad is just around the corner, at some level you believe happiness makes you vulnerable.

2. When you feel good, you feel guilty. Most people

feel guilty when they do something wrong. Some people feel guilty when they enjoy themselves, as if they were doing something wrong.

3. You don’t express your needs. Millions of people

allow others to ignore, take advantage of, or take them for granted because they do not speak up. If you speak up and let others know it’s not ok to treat you these ways, their bad behaviors will probably stop.

4. You are overly focused on the needs of others. Focusing on the needs of others is noble. However, focusing solely on their needs and not your own is a disservice to yourself. This behavior typically leads to resentment and emotional martyrdom.

Happy (

to be

5. You don’t enjoy the moment. Letting go and having fun in the here and now is an important way to experience fulfillment and reduce stress. It is a huge need!

6. You are attracted to emotionally unavailable

people. A sure way to NOT get your needs met is to choose emotionally unavailable or narcissistic people to be in relationships with.

7. You expect disappointment. Expecting disappoint-

ment keeps happiness at a distance. It actually keeps you from either doing what would make you happy or not enjoying it while you’re doing it.

8. You don’t know what you want. Not knowing what

want or refusing to take time figure it out is a way to avoid your purpose in life. Living with a sense of purpose is an important need that brings meaning and fulfillment.

9. You avoid intimacy. The need for intimacy is funda-

mental to relationships and happiness. When you avoid close relationships or shy away from deeper connections with people, you miss out on this aspect of life.

10. You relive the bad times. Happy people tend to

relive happy memories and view upsetting memories as if from a distance, like a neutral observer. Unhappy, pessimistic people tend to relive unpleasant memories and view the good memories from the observer perspective. It’s been said, “Pain and suffering exist in the past. Fear and worry exist in the future. Peace exists in the present.” It is time for you to move beyond these patterns and give yourself permission to satisfy your needs. (Note: Tara L. Robinson will interview Mike on September 3rd, 3:30-4:30pm on WAIF 88.3FM or www.waif883.org ) About the author: Mike Bundrant is the co-developer of the AHA Solution, a tool for increasing happiness.

This is a time when we send our future back to the classrooms, telling them that they can make their wildest dreams come true. Our words may say one thing, yet our actions might be saying another. They are watching you, watching us, the adults around LJ AD them to see if what we’re saying is true. They’re watching to see if you are living out your2013 wildest dreams.

What would it feel like to hold that belief for yourself again? Give yourself permission to dream! If you’re honest with yourself, has there been a part of your dream that has been dormant for months, years, maybe even decades? Have you been waiting for your turn, telling yourself you’ll tend to it, after the kids are in school, after your husband finishes his PhD, after you get married, buy your own home, etc.? The list of reasons why you’re waiting can go on and on. I encourage you to stop waiting and start activating your dream. Our students are looking to you, to me, to us, to see how we’re fulfilling our dreams. To see if it really is possible to live a life they love. It is never too late.

seniors all around us, who have decided that it is never too late to make a dream a reality. This same truth applies to you. If it is never too late, what would your dream be if you had no limitations? Take the First Step. Your dream is patient. It will wait for you to be ready. Believe in yourself and take the first step toward your future. Surround yourself with inspiration. Identify fellow dreamers and those who believe in you. We send our students to schools where others share the belief that they can achieve what they set out to do. Do the same thing for yourself. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who will support you, champion you, celebrate the successes with you, and believe in you.

This fall, as you see students working to making their dreams a reality, recognize the important role you have in following your own passions.

Trust Your

Vibes

by Sonia Choquette

M

ore and more People, are being drawn to living spiritually empowered, authentically grounded, intuitively guided, positive, and peaceful lives. We’re generally becoming much more willing to accept the idea that we create our own realities and aren’t simply victims of circumstance, as evidenced by a huge surge of interest in things such as quantum physics and mind-body connections in health. We’re becoming willing to explore and even speak with others about our rich inner lives and our ever-expanding intuitive experiences. And yet, in spite of these encouraging signs, we’re still suffering from personal and worldwide violence and destruction. An Idea is Not Enough So even though the idea of spiritual awakening and personal empowerment sounds appealing and even possible, the actual shift in consciousness most of us need to make in order to go from victim of circumstance to divine co-creator has yet to be made. We all must take a big step forward—if not an actual leap— to jump-start the transformation that everyone speaks of, desires, and that the world so desperately needs. Step one: Understanding that your inner peace contributes to world peace. Listening to your intuition, your spirit, instead of the voice of your fears and other peoples’ opinions is a big step.

12

Living W h o l e Journal

Tuning in to and following your intuition relaxes the mind, puts the body at ease, and opens the heart, because inner-conflict is eliminated as you become more at one with your spirit by being your Self. With such a big load off your shoulders, you can begin to fine tune your awareness and expand your creativity, gaining a more graceful, fulfilling, and productive rhythm in your life. With your spirit firmly at the helm, you flow with the deepest, most authentic truth and experience each day as God de-

Start tuning into your intuition by following these four steps:

1. Be open to your intuition. Being open helps you turn your attention to your heart, where your intuition is centered. It shifts your awareness to be able to receive intuitive guidance.

2. Expect your intuition to guide you. The more you expect intuition to guide you, the more it will. 3. Trust your intuition when you

“Step one: Understanding that your inner peace contributes to world peace.” signed and intended you to experience it: beautiful, connected, and filled with joy. Because you are aligned with your true self, you feel less and less compelled to seek approval from others or allow the way they see you to determine your selfworth. You stop feeling out of sync, and that’s a huge relief. Honor Your Inner Voice Honoring our inner voices and allowing our spirits to lead is a choice we must all eventually make in this great transformational time. Those who refuse, for whatever reason, to surrender to their hearts will continue to suffer, struggle, and miss the joys of life. Like a battery running out of power, unless we stop fighting and start trusting our spirits for guidance, our limited ego energy will dwindle and eventually die. Battling our own fears and battling others' hurts us, each other, and our planet.

are aware of its guidance. Don’t let your ego (i.e. fear) argue with or struggle against your higher wisdom.

4. Act on your intuition. When you act on your intuition you begin to shift away from fear and into flow. Acting on your intuition allows your true nature to lead. It puts you back into contact with your most creative self. This is good for you and good for the planet. Simply put, always trust your vibes. (Note: Tara L.

Mind Over Matter Part 1

by Jennifer Annenberg

I

f you are reading this, chances are you have spent at least some time developing and evolving your mind. This phenomenal feat is what helps one achieve conscious awareness. However, there has been so much emphasis on the mind recently that the physical body and its significance has been largely excluded from the conversation. It’s the missing link of an extraordinary life of wholeness, which can allow our lives to truly flow, rendering us in complete harmony with ourselves. When we harmonize our inner reality with our outer being, we function from the highest level of awareness. We completely tune into ourselves and exude our Presence to the world around us. Bestselling author, licensed psychotherapist and transformative educator of the Feminine Power teachings Katherine Woodward Thomas says, “Our bodies are the hosts of our great spirits and the home of our grand souls. They house the vastness of the life force that moves in and through us and grants us the gift of life itself. To relate to them as anything less than a miracle is a distortion of who we are.”

What are we advertising? Our physical bodies are creative, expanding, evolving canvases of enlightenment. Many of us have relegated them to being less important than the mind, but why? The physical body has been viewed as a separate entity devoid of sacredness, a thoroughly superficial matter to transcend. Yet, if we are unhappy with our physical being and neglect it completely, how can we achieve true happiness? We say we want a happy, fulfilling, abundant life, while our appearance, our presence, advertises the opposite. How can we be truly spiritually evolved or enlightened if we are deeming half of us unworthy? Do we subconsciously demonize people who are beautiful; or label those who spend time on their physical appearance as superficial? You came

here to have a simply marvelous, delicious, experience. Embrace your body, which can help lead you to this place. Celebrate and honor it. Revolutionary artist of modern dance and choreography Martha Graham said, “Your body is a sacred garment. It is your first and last garment. It is what you enter life with and what you depart with and it should be treated with honor.”

It’s all about balance It’s time to balance the disparity between our inner and outer selves. After all, our essence includes both. It’s time to go back home to our beautiful amazing bodies that have served us so well and start aligning them with our minds. This is a necessary journey all its own. When we align ourselves with our true essence, we are in harmony with who we are and we radiate this truth out to the world. When we change our relationship with ourselves, our external world changes too. Our physical presence has the potential to transform, inspire, and delight. Each of us is a unique flower in the garden of life. When we blossom into the fullest expression of who we are physically and mentally, that’s when the real magic happens. In our wholeness, we ooze an essence that magnetizes everything and everyone around us. Much like the flower, the butterfly and each blade of grass, in its unapologetic splendor, we are not here to merely survive, we are here to thrive. Your radiance is needed like never before, to light up the world. Are You Ready?

We’re off to see by Rev. Kathy Engelhardt

T

wenty years ago my son Robert and I created something life changing one evening as we watched the movie The Wizard of Oz. I started sharing some thoughts about how certain scenes had possible metaphysical interpretations. Then Robert told me what he saw as his interpretations. We discussed how the characters represent people in our lives, and most importantly, how they represent aspects of ourselves. Before I knew it, the two of us were taking notes, and from that personal journal we formed a workshop.

Toto Symbolizes Spirit Let’s take Toto for example, Dorothy’s little dog. Toto can easily represent Spirit; the spirit that dwells within us. What is the one thing in the movie that no one could capture? Toto. At the beginning of the movie, Mrs. Gulch tries to take him to the pound, but Toto jumps out of the basket. The monkeys capture Toto and take him to the witch’s castle, only for Toto to get away and get help. In the final scene, Toto jumps out of the balloon basket to chase a cat. Dorothy goes after him and that’s when the balloon takes off. No one can ever capture your spirit, no matter how hard they try.

Dorothy Always Had the Power Your spirit is always there to guide you. Spirit knew the balloon was not the way home. Dorothy had to follow her guidance (i.e. her spirit) in order for her to find her way home. Dorothy always had the power to go back home, she always had the power to return to the Truth of who she is, but she had to learn it for herself. As the spiritual leader of Garden Park Unity and as a life/ spiritual coach, I’m ready to offer the workshop to those who want to expand their minds and dig a little deeper into what keeps them in the “Land of Oz.” I’ll show just how easy it can be to return home. The two hour workshop will be spent showing clips of the movie with interaction following each clip. I guarantee you will never watch the movie through the same eyes again! Rev. Kathy Engelhardt will be presenting her Wizard of Oz workshop at Garden Park Unity Church on Sunday October 13, 2013 from 12:45 - 2:45pm. Love offerings accepted.

nutrition and recipes from the kitchen of

The Healthy Foodies by Pama Mitchell and Mary Ann Barnes, MD

Fructose — Good and Not

F

ructose is one of the three simple sugars found in fruits and vegetables, which are loaded with vitamins and nutrients. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS), however, was developed in the 1960s as a way to use the crops produced by American farmers. As an inexpensive and very sweet supplement, it has been incorporated into many if not most of the prepared food products sold today. Unfortunately, it has also been linked with many of the chronic diseases that afflict our society, including obesity and diabetes. Fructose is metabolized more like a fat than a sugar, increasing bad cholesterol fractions like triglycerides and low density lipoproteins (LDL), and lowering good cholesterol (high density lipoprotein, or HDL). Like artificial sweeteners, HFCS

seems to promote overeating and obesity. Recent studies have also implicated HFCS in liver disease. Including fruits and vegetables in the diet, however, does not confer these risks. Consuming more fruits and vegetables actually seems to lower the risk of chronic diseases. So don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. Minimize the high fructose corn syrup, but go ahead and consume natural fructose found in your fruits and veggies.

Apple Season One of the very best nutritional powerhouse foods is the good old apple. And the best ones are available right now. August marks the beginning of apple season, but September and October mark the peak time to harvest a wide variety of this delicious fruit. The old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” contains more than a seed of wisdom. Loaded with antioxidants and an important fiber called pectin, apples have a range of health benefits – from whitening teeth to protecting against dementia, Parkinson’s, diabetes, heart disease and many forms of cancer. They are filling while also being low in calories and thus help with weight control. And their high fiber content goes a long way toward keeping us “regular.” What’s not to love about these yummy little spheres?

T

he cessation of war between states is only the first step to establishing peace. The goal is a mutual respect, honor and welcome of the other’s sovereignty. The same is true on a personal level. Serene external circumstances is only the first step towards essential peace. Real peace is an inner state of being. What are the steps, the stages, between the beginning condition and the realization of true peace? What steps are you willing to take in seeking peace? There is abundant wisdom about the peace process. We know it to be wise, in part because it has been proven effective since the most ancient times that were recorded. We need not invent our own, new, process of achieving peace. We do, however, need to bring those universal truths and practices into our current culture and stage of evolution. As a student of the Bible – both the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures – I have been helped tremendously by the steps towards the peaceful life described in the seven days of creation in Genesis. Each day is a state of being marked by ideas and practices. And their order describes the natural, logical progression from a state of darkness and confusion to a state of awareness and rest from war. This order is as follows: Awakening – Light shines for the first time: We begin to acknowledge God’s presence. Distinguishing – Waters above from waters below: We distinguish between what’s real and important from what’s

superficial and less important. Cultivating – Tender plants grow: We recognize things in us that need to change, and we start taking the first steps toward making those changes. Navigating - Sun, moon and stars placed in the sky for light: We feel a new fire; we are enlightened by our beliefs and motivated by love. Speaking - Fish swim and birds fly: Our thinking comes alive in a new way. We speak confidently from what we know is true, and we affirm ourselves in what we know is good. Loving - Humans are created in the image of God: We take action to better the lives of others, not out of obligation, but out of love and a wise understanding. Peace - Resting. No more work; there is peace: This is the result of taking wise and loving action. It is an inner peace that helps bring about peace in external circumstances.

I am convinced that we can acquire practices that will create peace in our hearts, in our minds, in our lives, and so in the world. Clark Echols is facilitating a series of seven small group experiences, based on the Genesis account of creation, as described by the mystic Emanuel Swedenborg, and by other contributors to human wisdom. The first gathering will be a free introduction to the series on September 22nd, 5-7pm. 513.772.1478. Glendale New Church, 845 Congress Ave, Glendale, OH 45246. www.glendalenewchurch.org

8 God Myths

The Dude Abides by Pam Grout

“Everyone else is waiting for eternity and the shamans are saying, ‘How about tonight?’” ~ Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., author and teacher

T

he Dude Abides Principle: There is an invisible energy force or field of infinite possibilities (FP). There is a loving, abundant, totally hip force in the universe. Some people call it God. You can call it prana, “the all there is,” or “Cosmo Kramer,” for all I care. The problem, up until now, is that we’ve had to take this force on faith. And, because we bought this idea that the force is vague and mysterious, we haven’t been trained to notice, this inspiring, energizing, life-altering force is zooming in, around, and through us. We have to retrain ourselves to think of this energy force the same way we think of electricity. We don’t wonder, Am I good enough to plug my toaster into the outlet? We don’t feel guilty for wanting to turn on the radio and listen to NPR. The FP is just as nonprejudiced and available as electricity once we make the decision to really look for it. And it’s not that hard to find. This is the section where we talk about the elephant in the room. Yes, I’m talking about God. Some version of “the dude” (to borrow a moniker from the cult-classic film The Big Lebowski) exists in every culture that has ever existed. Even physicists whose sole line of work is studying the properties and interactions of matter and energy know about the invisible force. Most of them do not call it God. Albert Einstein, for example, claimed no belief in the traditional God, but he sure as heck knew there was something a whole lot juicier out there in the cosmos. In fact, that juice, he said, was all he really cared about. The rest, he claimed, was just details. The God most of us believe in is an invention of man. We accept this human-made God as an indisputable fact. Trying to define God, of course, is impossible. God isn’t static, any more than electricity or light is static. God lies beyond the material world of matter, shape, and form. It fills the cosmos, saturates reality, and supersedes time and space. But that doesn’t stop us from trying to construct definitions. Here are the top eight whoppers we’ve made up about God: Whopper #1: God is a him. The FP doesn’t really have a gender. We certainly don’t talk about Mrs. Electricity or Mr. Gravity. The more appropriate pronoun would be it. The FP is a force field that runs the universe, the same energy source that grows flowers, forms scabs over skinned knees, and constantly pushes for wholeness. God is more like the force in Star Wars, a presence that dwells within us, a principle by which we live.

Whopper #2: God looks like ZZ Top, makes black check marks after your name, and is basically too busy working on world hunger to care about you. God, if you believe the accepted box, is a little like Boo Radley

18

Living W h o l e Journal

in To Kill a Mockingbird: this mysterious neighbor constantly peering out the window of his penthouse suite, waiting to catch us doing something “naughty, naughty.” If you don’t follow this commandment or if you break that rule, God just might send his angel Secret Service after you. Whopper #3: God plays favorites. The FP is a force field that’s equally available to everyone. It’s a natural capacity in all of us, not an exclusive gift bestowed upon a few. In fact, that is the primary lesson Jesus taught. God is within. You are part of God. You can perform miracles.

Whopper #4: God rewards our suffering and gives brownie points for our sacrifice (better known as “Life sucks and then you die”). Many of us think this short life span is “only a test” for the paradise we’re eventually going to earn. If we hang on and bear it, we’ll someday walk through those pearly gates and be happy. What I’d like to suggest is that this heaven you’re waiting for is available now. Whopper #5: God is just so demanding. The FP doesn’t need anything. It requires nothing of us. It makes no demands. Only misinformed humans, scrambling desperately to make sense of their world, came up with a God who plays eeniemeenie-minie-mo with our lives, a God who likes and dislikes the same people we do.

Whopper #6: You don’t want to ask too much from God; you certainly wouldn’t want to bug him. As I’ve already pointed out, the FP is not a person; therefore you cannot bug him. The FP is a power, an unseen energetic force. It isn’t finite or limited, so you certainly couldn’t ask too much of it. If anything, we don’t use the FP power nearly enough. Whopper #7: God is just so vague. Au contraire. Once you get rid of the black cloud of rumors and half truths that hide your awareness, you’ll find the unseen force communicates just as clearly as Dr. Phil. Once you rid yourself of the blocks, you’ll be shown exactly what to do and how to do it.

Whopper #8: God only answers when he’s good and ready. There is never a time when God or “the force” isn’t guiding you. The big guy is available 24/7 once you’re ready to focus your full attention on it. The trick is to pay attention, trust, and as I will continue to repeat, focus your full attention on it.

And while we’re on the topic of God’s will, let’s get this out on the table. The will of God, for those who insist on using that term, is the ceaseless longing of the spirit in you to become all you’re capable of being. Amen. *Excerpted from E-Squared: Nine Do-it-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout (Hay House, 2013).

Merlyn’s Raven by Rose Vanden Eynden (Soul Mate Publishing, 2013)

The New Kitchen Mystic by Mary Hayes Grieco (Beyond Words, 2013) There is no such thing as an ordinary moment. Whether washing dishes, driving to work, or raking leaves, the potential for personal growth is everpresent. You can cultivate love, find peace, enhance creativity, and make a profound connection with your spiritual self simply by engaging fully in everyday life. In The New Kitchen Mystic, respected author and therapist Mary Hayes Grieco offers a poignant, playful, and insightful collection of essays that teach readers how to bring magic to the most mundane. As a former faculty member of Hazelden and current director of The Midwest Institute for Forgiveness Training, Hayes Grieco incorporates her personal experiences to offer a writing style that is part philosophy, part how-to, and part storytelling. A respected spiritual teacher and engaging speaker, she created and hosted her own local radio show, The Blue Couch, featuring interviews with local and national leaders in spiritual thought and holistic health. Tara L. Robinson will interview Mary on Tuesday Sept. 10th, 3:30-4:30pm on WAIF 88.3FM or www.waif883.org

For a young woman, falling in love is the ultimate magic. But what if the object of her affection is Merlyn, destined to be King Arthur’s legendary advisor? Can Gwendydd work her own magic to capture the heart of the world’s most powerful enchanter, or will her desire destroy her and the people she loves most? In her new book Merlyn’s Raven, winner of Best Fantasy Romance at the EPIC awards, local author Rose Vanden Enyden weaves a magical tale of intrigue and suspense. The first of its kind to rival the classic Mists of Avalon, from the very first page Merlyn’s Raven leaves the reader burning for more. Vanden Enyden’s masterful command of the language, English and spiritual, is clear and compelling throughout this must-read and shines light on and through the story. Gwendydd’s journey with discovering and claiming her own power, learning to master the control and use of energy, and using love as the vessel for her healing gifts is as relevant today as ever. Readers will delight in her triumph and will believe the same magick is as accessible to them in the “real” world as it is to her in the novel. Both as fiction work and a manual for those seeking love as the highest expression of being, Merlyn’s Raven delivers. Tara L. Robinson will interview Rose on Tuesday Oct. 15th, 3:30-4:30pm on WAIF 88.3FM or www.waif883.org

Healthy Gut Healthy Body Herbs ‘n Such, by Mimi Tagher

I

n a recent New York Times article, Justin Sonnenburg, a microbiologist at Stanford, suggests that we would do well to begin regarding the human body as “an elaborate vessel optimized for the growth and spread of our microbial inhabitants.” In fact, there are hundreds of bacterial species that call “us” home. For every human cell that is intrinsic to our body, there are about ten resident microbes. Microbes are single-cell organisms so tiny that millions can fit into the eye of a needle. They exert an influence on our health as great as the genes we inherit from our patents. Without them, the human body would not survive.

now know that these probiotics do much more than help with diarrhea and regularity. Our gut bacteria play a role in the manufacturing of substances like neurotransmitters (including serotonin); enzymes and vitamins (notably vitamins B and K); and other important nutrients such as amino and fatty acids. The newest research suggests that some of these compounds play a role in regulating stress and even temperament. Believe it or not, when gut microbes from easygoing, adventurous mice are transplanted into the guts of anxious and timid mice, they become more adventurous.

Probiotics vs. Prebiotics Microbes and the Immune System Disorders in our internal ecosystem - a loss of diversity, or a proliferation of the “wrong” kind of microbes, may predispose us to obesity, inflammation, allergies, infections, autoimmune problems, and chronic disease. Our resident microbes appear to play a critical role in training and modulating our immune system, helping it to accurately distinguish between friend and foe. Some researchers believe that the alarming increase in autoimmune diseases in Western societies is due to the disruption of the right type of microbes. Scientists have long known that an adequate amount of “good” microbes, or “friendly” bacteria (probiotics) in the gut contribute to the wellness of one’s digestive tract. We

To augment the good bacteria in your gut you can consume probiotics in foods such as certain yogurts, cultured dairy products, sauerkraut, miso, tempeh, various juices and soy beverages. You can also ingest them in supplement form. Please note that probiotics alone are NOT enough to benefit the gut flora. You also need prebiotics which are food for the microbes. Prebiotics are non-digestible foods formed mostly from carbohydrate fibers call oligosaccharides. These fibers are not digested so they stay in the digestive tract and stimulate growth of the beneficial bacteria in the colon. Oligosaccharides are found in various foods including whole grains, fruits, garlic, and legumes. They can also be found in supplement form.

Symbiosis - A Match Made in Heaven When probiotics and prebiotics mix together it is called a symbiotic. Together they can restore balance in the digestive tract and your immune system. They can also play a role in helping you feel more satisfied and energetic. It is true that you are what you eat...so watch what you put in there!

hat do you think about this? Let’s change our culture so that every business is successful, every person is prosperous, and every child has a future. Restore might be a better verb than change because these are the values on which our great nation was founded … and has since floundered. The USA was founded by small business owners and farmers. These early Americans understood their community economic systems. Today we are far removed from those early politics and way too far removed from an understanding of the very economic systems on which we rely. That’s a problem. Independent studies demonstrate that most people, including public officials, do not adequately understand civics and economics. As a result, we suffer individually and collectively. Publications like Whole Living Journal inform us about alternatives and choices. These allow us to reach beyond main stream American commercialism and find meaning and wellness in our lives. Yet, every day we must return to our community economic systems where we make our livings, pay our bills, and try to creProof Date: 08/17/10 ate stability for the future.

Are you one of thousands of readers trying to get a better slice of the American pie? Would you agree that it is time to take some action? My mission is to turn this negative leaning trend around and empower every member of the community to be an active, informed cog in the wheel of economic prosperity. I’ve found the best way to achieve this mission is in a community setting. We can share the learning experience, contribute to the discussion, and go away ready, willing, and able to make a difference. Whether you are in the 8th grade or your 8th decade, you can “become part of the change you wish to see” (thanks, Mr. Ghandi). Together, we can change the culture of our community from one of misunderstanding, indifference, and apathy to one that truly understands how to build community prosperity, enrich our personal lives, and rebuild the American Dream.

Ancient Traditions Autumnal Equinox

Intuitive Insights, by Francine Haydon and Patricia Garry

n equinox occurs twice a year – about March 21st and again about September 22nd. It is the time of year when the tilt of the Earth’s axis is pointed neither towards the Sun nor away from it. It’s at 0 degrees. These are the only two days when the Sun crosses the celestial equator and we have “equal days and equal nights.” [Equinox is derived from the Latin aequus (equal) and nox (night).] The exact hours may vary, but in general, we have 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness. On this day, the Sun rises everywhere on Earth around 06:00 and sets about 18:00 (local time), except at the North and South Poles.

our leaves – and even assist the neighbors. Raking is great exercise and can also be a powerful meditation – the rhythm of the strokes, the beauty and the autumn smells, can carry us far from our difficulties. If we have gardens, we can love the harvest – pulling out the potatoes, letting them rest on the soil for a few days. Bagging tomatoes and greens into special plastic bags that will keep them fresh a long time. And planting some green crops – lettuces, kale, collard greens – that just might keep growing through the winter. All this with tremendous gratitude in our hearts and in our hands as we breathe that wonderful crisp air.

The Spiritual Gift of Gratitude

In the Northern Hemisphere, we refer to the September Equinox as the Autumnal Equinox, as it signifies the changing of the seasons from the hot summer to the cooler fall months ahead. In 2013, the Autumnal Equinox is at 4:44 PM EDT on Sunday, September 22nd. This signpost of nature tells us that the leaves will soon change color and drop, and that temperatures will become cooler, putting a chill in the air. Winter will soon follow. In ancient times, the Autumnal Equinox signaled it was time to gather stores for the harsh winter to come. Folks harvested their crops, hunted for meat and prepared everything by salting, canning and placing it in cool storage so that there would be enough food throughout the winter for their families. It was a time to prepare and celebrate Nature’s bounty.

And then, of course, we can celebrate and be thankful. Gathering with friends or family in the back yard, on the deck or in the neighborhood park, we can share nature’s gifts, and take turns telling each other what we most love about this season, and why we are grateful. We can pass on to our children and grandchildren the spiritual gift of gratitude, mixed in with stories of our lives as children. With each of these actions, we bring peace to our lives – and, one day, peace to the world.

Preparing for Winter And what should we do, who choose to live in harmony with nature and the passing of the seasons? We can enjoy the work of putting away the summer clothes and bringing out the colder weather gear. We can relish the opportunity to rake

CD Review Soul Burst by Ron Esposito (Spiral Music, 2013) Tibetan and crystal singing bowls artist Ron Esposito released his third album Soul Burst in June. During the two years since his last CD was released, Esposito’s music has found an audience on television. His recordings have been placed in the network and cable television shows “Hawaii 5-0” (CBS), “Nashville” (ABC), “Touch” (Fox), “Common Law” (USA) and “Ray Donovan” (Showtime). Soul Burst is the convergence of two separate trios with the addition of vocals. “I had been going through this mental list of instruments and sounds I wanted to use on my next recording,” comments Esposito. “I knew I wanted strings, but decided the yearning feel and a vocal quality could be achieved with a bowed bass. This was a new experience for jazz bassist Steve Flora, but he brought it and the results are transcendent.” Esposito resides in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he also serves clients as a certified Life Coach and Enneagram teacher at the Conscious Living Center. He performs frequently in concert, at yoga and meditation centers, and for private events throughout the region. www.ronesposito.com
