Pump up & refresh with a daily dose of positivity!

Did you know cookies cookies cookiesmo mo ve mountains?! move ies are popping up! ot talking ab about the ies on your computer; ing aab bout COOKIES, s sweet soft cookies. I d home-baked cookies ne of my students w nights ago and those ran wrapped treats y day. Then to fo follow that up this morning, unexpectedly my co-wo co-worker brought in happy Friday cookies. Y Yum! um! This got me thinking how amazing it ffeeels when someone makes a simple gesture to acknowledge you or treat you with kindness. The fact that the medium is cookies is irrelevant; the kindness can come in any shape or ffo orm. These two pleasant moments reminded me that it’s very easy to change the momentum of another persons’ day. A simple compliment, letting the car next to you merge into your lane or a cookie can do it. The point is that kindness is easy and it can create ripple effe effects much larger than we could ever imagine. What I’ve come to realize is that if I truly want to change the world, I must do it within myself lf.. Then that change will resonate to the people around me, and continuously with the people around them. I believe on a ffeew occasions I may have been conf nfu used and recognized as the “crazy girl who baked me cookies”; “OMG this girl I met just baked me cookies-stage 5 clinger…” What these homies didn’ didn’t clue into was that I’m not nuts; girls are so much more complex than guys! This type of thoughtfulness has alwa ways ys been my way way of sharing my positive energy with the world, it had nothing to do with them, sorry guys. So, do not be disheartened

and overwhelmed with the nega egattive in the w wo orld and any crankpot that craps craps on your cookies! Yo You are in control and your genuine small gestures can move mountains! So go ahead and create some positive chocolate cchip ripples.

I grew up with the belief that we become like our friends and if we want to know where we are in life all we need to do is look at who we are surrounded by. I’ve since learned that there was a misconception in this line of reasoning. Just changing friends does not necessarily mean anything about you changes. Sometimes, if it appears like you’ve changed, it is usually short lived. An example of this we see quite often is with someone who struggles with addiction such as drugs or alcohol. Usually, they change their social circle to remove themselves from temptations and influence. However, more often than not, the person’s addiction free experience lasts for a short while before they find themselves back amongst old acquaintances falling back into the same old patterns. All change starts from within. There are no exceptions to this fact. Our thoughts create our feelings which directly affect our entire experience in life. Dr. Wayne Dyer says in his book “The Power of Intention,” if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. In other words, changing your thoughts around something, someone, or a situation will change your feelings around that topic. When your feelings change, so does the frequency in which all the atoms inside your body and your environment move. The higher the frequency the more positively energized things become, and a lower frequency, creates the opposite effect. When we feel sick, our frequencies are low, and our thoughts are usually negative, especially around being sick. Just like with all other experiences, healing starts from within, but the question is, where does it go from there? The act of healing can be put quite simply as raising ones frequency high enough for positive change to occur. This can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual healing. Remember that when you raise the frequencies within you it directly raises the frequencies around you as well. We have all known someone, that all they had to do was walk into a room and the whole place lights up. Have you noticed how you become stressed when you here a crying baby, or how a baby’s laughter causes you to smile and feel good. It’s their frequency that changes the energy in where they are at. When you decide to heal an area in your life such as, health, finances, work or relationships, simply start with your thoughts around it. Notice how your feelings change and even though you don’t have any control over anyone else, you will notice that people will react to the change in one way or another. People, who choose to stay stuck where they are at, will fall away. Many others with the same desire as you to heal and live a positive experience will draw closer to you and begin to heal with you. This process is called lateral healing.

An Interview with Padma Those who attended our recent Kamloops Wellness Festival may have seized the opportunity to experience yoga and meditation with Padma, one of Canada’s most respected and popular teachers of yoga and self-realization. She has produced and hosted several nationally aired TV series featuring Padma Yoga. Interior Wellness Magazine had a chance to connect with Padma personally to find out more about her journey and who she is.

Interior Wellness: I understand that you studied in India for 10 years. Can you tell us about your time there?

Padma: While traveling in Southeast Asia, many years ago, I happened upon a meditation teacher. I stayed for a few weeks, returned for 2 months and then 6 months. I was then able to obtain a student visa and eventually ended up living there for 10 years. The location of this Meditation Institute is in an isolated area high in the Himalayan Mountains. This location is rustic and beautiful, surrounded by terraced farmland. This was not a traditional ashram. I lived in my own small place, and looked after my own needs. The teachers in the institute came from all over the world and taught the many aspects of yoga, including the Patanjali Sutras, Bhagavad-Gita studies, breath-work, Sanskrit and meditation. This lineage of teaching encouraged one to become an authentic instructor, teaching in her own voice, instead of trying to copy the teacher.

IW:

What happened when you returned to Canada?

Padma: I anticipated returning to my previous line of work but kept getting called to teach. There was a demand for instruction in meditation, self awareness, yoga and the philosophy of meditation. So the unexpected opportunity was there for me to teach what I love. IW: What type of meditation do you teach? Padma: I have taken what I have learned and teach with my own voice, not trying to copy

my teachers, but answering the needs of my students. I learned to study with my teacher and to meditate, and this is the model that I use. Each person brings their own uniqueness to study and meditation and if asked for assistance I help the student to find their own freedom. The skills and techniques vary, calling for a whole philosophy and perhaps lifestyle change. Even within larger groups the intention is to assist the individual find the meditation technique that works best for them.

IW: I have personally benefited from one of your “Modern Meditations” DVD. The segment on anxiety was especially helpful. Padma:

In the “Modern Meditations” DVD series, various life challenges are specifically considered, such as anxiety. This is therapeutic meditation and yoga, working through issues in each of the 23 minute segments. I bring the full practice of body, breath, philosophy and meditation to each of my classes. Students have successfully overcome anxieties such as the fear of flying through using this specific therapy.

IW: Am I correct in assuming that Padma Yoga is more concerned with the development of consciousness than in perfecting the yogic poses? Padma:

Padma Yoga is about finding freedom through developing consciousness. All the techniques support that main purpose. What I teach uses many methods and practices, as previously mentioned and may even include Tai Chi. In saying that, I am not just teaching specific techniques and postures for their own sake, but that their effect may strengthen and purify the subtle body. This work also balances and clarifies the capacity of the mind, releasing the power and freedom within. Padma Yoga assists people to become aware of their own pure presence. I offer the supplementary skills to help the student to reach this awareness. It is important to know your main purpose and find a teacher with whom you can work.

IW: I understand that you return to India for 2 months each year.

Padma:

I return to India to be with my teacher, to meditate, study and ask questions. My teacher is 86 years old and his wisdom supports me in the development of my own practice. We talk and we meditate for several hours each day.

IW:

You are much appreciated for the thoroughness and focus that you bring to the expanding understanding of yoga and meditation. Your DVD’s make your work very accessible.

Padma: Thank you. I have 2 series of DVD’s that present a full practice of body, breath, philosophy and meditation. The Elemental Series and Modern Meditations are available on my website. “Mountain” and “Ocean” DVD’s, follow a different format and have become best sellers in Canada. All three sets are sold individually. www.padmayoga.ca IW:

Thank you so much, Padma, for taking time for this interview. We look forward to seeing you next year at our Wellness Festival.

What Else Is Possible?

- An Introduction to Access Consciousness

qu bet po you

Th pro Co fou mo Th

Did you ever wonder how to BE the change you want to see in the world? What would it take for your life to get better? - What if, for example, you could change your body, relationships, or money situation, just by changing your point of view? Twenty years ago, a man named Gary Douglas did just that. By asking “How can this get better?” and using simple tools and processes that anyone can learn, he experienced such profound improvements in his ­

life that he couldn’t help but share this discovery with the world. He called it Access Consciousness. What I love about Access Consciousness is that it is based on the question. A decision, conclusion, answer, belief, definition or judgment limits us, whereas a question opens us to infinite possibilities. Living in question mode without judgment is how you tap into the infinite and create change.

By Cathy Lidster

Let’s look at a simple example. The last time you couldn’t find your car keys did you automatically conclude that you are getting forgetful and must be aging? How many limiting beliefs, conclusions, worries and judgments are in that kind of thinking? Had you instead asked the question (with no judgment, point of view or expectation) “How can locating my car keys get easier and

What Else Is Possible? You feel as though you’ve had an incredible massage. And when you let go of years of limiting patterns, your whole life can change. Reported benefits of having your BARS run include enhanced sleep and relaxation, quieter, clearer, more peaceful mind with reduced “chatter ”, health and weight changes, improved outlook, more abundance and joy…. How does it get any better than that? As an Access BARS Facilitator I have enjoyed watching myself and others create more fun, awareness and abundance in our lives. Last month, as I continued to ask my favorite question, What Else Is Possible? --What came up was the crazy idea of having a BARS practitioner training class in water! Typically your BARS are run reclining on a chair or massage table.

Here are some of the comments we received from class participants:

“Just want to say again how much I enjoyed this class. Wow, that was fun. I really learned a lot from you as facilitator, it was really great to be in your class...you really helped me figure out how to flow a bit more freely with the pacing of the day…the water was really fun! Loved it!” Sheryl H, Armstrong

Hug An Addict You might have smoked some pot at a rock concert or tried a hit of Ecstasy at a rav rave when you were in your 20s. You probably tried a beer when you were in your teens. You probably drank a lot of soda pop when you were a kid. Almost certainly you’ve rewarded yourself with sugary desserts. Poisons, all of them. Addictive poisons. Most of us got awa awa wayy with it. Some were not so lucky.

amongst cancer patients. Let’s tell our lawmakers and our medical system that we want our addicted sons and daughters treated with compassion and respect. Studies have shown that the addict with the best chance of recovery is the one with a support network, people who will encourage them, honour and celebrate their baby steps, not condemn them fo for every slip.

Be honest. What are your thoughts about addicts? I should clarif ifyy that fo for our purposes today, an “addict” is someone whose drug of choice is illegal and/or restricted, not you and me with our addictions to coff ffeee, sugar, sex, showing off ff,, being right and so on. An addict is probably a liar, shiftless and lazy azy,, probably has little integrity, likely a criminal. Anything else?

For every other disease we handle the symptoms, then look for the cause. We We need to first ensure that the addict can get the substance s/he needs safely. Then, we can begin to reduce the dependence and treat the cause. I believe the need fo for anything external, whether it be danger er,, sex, sugar or cocaine, arises because we do not know our enoughness, we do not know our own power to create our own experience of Lif ifee, we have lost our spiritual connection, the loving, compassionate source of Lif ifee that wells up within each of us. We have fo forgotten who we are. We We have fo forgotten that we are divine and sacred beings, every one of us. Could we help each other to remember? That could be our only hope.

Yes, many addicts are criminals. But they did not become addicts because they are criminals, they became criminals because they need to commit criminal acts in order to survive. Their bodies need something and they will do what they need to do in order to obtain it. If the drugs they need were not illegal, they would not need to commit illegal acts. What if there was a “war on penicillin?” The war on drugs is a monumental failure (as are all wars, but don’t get me started on that). The war on drugs really isn’t hurting anybody except those people that are already being hurt by the drugs. We do our best to protect our children fr from carcinogens and toxins. But if our sons and daughters develop cancer cer,, diabetes or MS, what do we do? W Wee nurture them, love them, drive them to doctor aap ppointments, encourage them to move back home, phone them to see how they’re doing. What do we do when our sons and daughters develop addiction? Lecture them, av avoid them, cut them off ff,, define our barriers, protect ourselves, even put them in jail. Addiction is not a criminal issue, it is a health issue. Addiction is a medical emergency with an abysmal recovery rate. We We simply would not tolerate so low a recovery rate

Addiction is a chronic illness, a life-lo life-long challenge. Next time you meet an addict on the street, know that this is somebody’s child, just trying to survive.

My Changing Body, My Changing Practice

a series exploring a yogini’s journey, both pre and post baby. At the time of printing, my new babe, Juno Anne Taylor, will be nearly 3 months old. We are beginning to settle into a routine. The shift to two children has been completely overwhelming. By this I mean that anything people tell you about parenting that you know to be true intellectually, simply cannot be understood until you experience it physically and emotionally. It is just like people say: “Enjoy this, it happens so fast. They grow up before you know it.” It is so true! How do I balance the days that are gone in a blink of an eye with the ones that can’t end soon enough? So where does yoga fit in? At the moment, it is spotty. Dinner still needs to get made. Dishes need to be done. I yell a lot and we watch a lot of TV. These things horrify me. I never wanted my children to watch a lot of TV, and how is it that a chilled out yogini can feel like she is going to metaphorically snap her crayons on a daily basis? This situation isn’t forever, I remind myself. I won’t always be this tired. I won’t always have an active two year old and an infant, and I have to remember that there will be a time when I am sad that I don’t have a toddler with an insatiable lust for life and a wide eyed innocent babe who smiles and thinks I am the greatest. There are moments of indescribable bliss that go along with the low points. The memory of those first few weeks is already feeling like a dream. I felt fragile and wobbly, like everything might fall apart at any minute, and at moments like it already had. But I felt much stronger than after the birth of my first daughter, both physically and emotionally. After my caesarean birth, I was up and doing a lap of the maternity ward on the second day! I truly believe that all of the focused belly breathing that I practiced before and after the birth of Juno helped me to heal, move on, and not mourn the things that did not go as I had planned as deeply as I did after Freja was born. I had a huge struggle breast-feeding again but I let my practice become imaginative. As I inhaled I imagined myself reaching down deep within me and grasping all of my love, light and colour and with each exhale I imagined that this is what I was nourishing her with. I have started practicing pranayama in the car, pausing before I respond with an eruption, stretching my shoulders out before I get into bed. Occasionally I find time for a short asana practice. I have to be content with this for now. Ahimsa (doing no harm), right? In the yoga model, the lower body or belly is where our instinct lies. Focusing our breath in the belly helps us to awaken our “gut” instinct. So far, with a second child I have learned that when a suggested or imposed strategy goes awry, my willingness to abide by my instinct as a parent is reinforced. This is very cool. And as I take a step back from a stronger physical practice for a while, I only hope I can retain some of the lessons from this intense time of learning. It is a simple time, not an easy time, of slowing down, listening, watching and being. As I begin teaching next week, I hope to be able to pass some of this on. But I apologize in advance if I don’t remember my left from my right and that I don’t know what day it is. Namaste. Next Issue: Finding the balance between practice, teaching, and family.

The Spirit and us are not separated; we are one and we are Spirit. When we go out into the lush gardens of Mother Nature or the dry desert, swim in the healing waters of lakes, rivers or oceans we are visiting ourselves. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nature and us; nature is in us. Find a place outside where you can rest and be still and absorb the ancient wise energies of the sweet earth. Bring this place gifts like tobacco, sage, and lavender. Nurture it and as you do this you nurture yourself. Create an altar in your home; it represents the intersection between heaven and earth.

self-examination. It is an opportunity to see how our decisions have shaped our lives. As we use the Breath technique, our awareness level increases. This allows us to hear our subconscious thoughts, feel the emotions around them and change the belief, creating better results now.

Interior wellness

What is a Breath Integration Counselling Session?

In a Breath Integration session, guided by a qualified Breath Integration Counsellor, you will have the opportunity to experience a connected circular breathing method. This technique quiets the mind and allows core subconscious thoughts and feelings that block your experience of aliveness to come to your awareness. Becoming more aware of these thoughts empowers you to make clearer decisions and begin creating a happier, more successful life.

Inspiration

Andrea Jittler-Friesen, Yoga Instructor

If you came to the third annual Interior Wellness Festival held June 1-3 at TRU, you will know what I mean when we say we have an inspiring wellness and yoga community here in Kamloops and BC Interior. People travelled from all over BC to join us at this unique annual event. One of the most inspiring comments I received was from a guest-presenter from Vancouver who says that they attend many “large shows’ in Vancouver and none of them have the COMMUNITY feel that we have at our festival. We are unique! One of the things I love most about our community is that if you want something to happen you can just start it! We are small enough that it probably hasn’t already been done 1000 times like in larger centres but large enough to support all we can give. The community enjoys all that is offered. What has emerged over the last 5 years since starting the Yoga Tree/ Interior Wellness Magazine is a connected community of wellness practitioners, teachers and students. Interior Wellness Magazine is very proud to be an integral part of the community, a source of inspiration and information. Thank you again to all those who participated and especiallly to our local Nature’s Fare for making the event possible! The word Inspiration comes from the word INSPIRE which also means to breathe in. To take in new energy, new life and nourishment which moves us forward in life. I hope you get inspired this summer. Free, local, inspiring. Interior Wellness. www.InteriorWellness.com & on facebook! We’d love to hear from you. Tell us your stories! How has Interior Wellness helped or inspired you or someone you know? We will publish your responses! Please email us interiorwellness@gmail.com The intention of this publication is and always has been to bring local information about what is going on in our community to our readers while inspiring them toward wellness. It is also a free resource where practitioners and teachers reach out to their local community through posting wellness services, workshops and classes.
