IN THIS ISSUE: This Month's Theme -
Echoes of the Past
WHAT IF... with every step you took... you were not just walking but were gently
exercising? WHAT IF... as you went through the day... you gained very valuable
aerobic, low impact exercise simply by wearing weighted athletic shoes? WHAT IF...
this shoe helped you to lose weight and inches without changing your diet or your
normal routine or having to "get on an exercise program"?
I do this with Nikken's CardioStrides. I love these shoes because they fit
perfectly into my busy lifestyle. I am a firm believer in the benefits of exercise
but, like a lot of people, I am too busy to devote a huge chunk of time to "going
out to" do it.
With CardioStrides, I control the amount of exercise that I get simply by
choosing when and where to wear my weight loss shoes. I will be honest: it will
take your body time to adjust to them... but once you do, you will be pleasantly
surprised by the results.
If you are like me, then you are bound to experience inch loss (from being
more toned) than weight loss (numbers changing on a scale) first. Even before that
you will feel the increased level of energy exercise brings. Yes, this is not a typo:
exercise DOES increase your energy... especially you do it on a daily basis.
To understand why, you must understand how the human body works. It has
evolved over centuries to meet the challenges of nature. Instead of walking over
rough terrain as our ancestors did, we glide on smooth surfaces like ice skaters
and have many "labor saving" devices to do heavy work for us. Instead of eating and
drinking a few times a week like they did, every day we eat rich foods that add more
calories that we can burn and so we grow fat.
By increasing the weight we carry with every step that we take, CardioStrides
put a little of the resistance back into our modern lives. In doing so, we cease to
be "ice skaters" and become more like "astronauts" moving through our world weighted
down by our shoes. In doing so, we get constant exercise... just like our ancestors
did. We move, breathe, and circulate our energy more... and we increase our level of
energy and we stay toned and fit.
By getting this daily exercise a step at a time, we begin the shift the
energetic balance in our bodies. We begin to burn more calories than we eat and
we begin to lose weight... slowly and naturally. Slow, natural weight loss is not
only more harmonious for our bodies but better for our mental and emotional well being.
One pair of weight loss shoes is like joining your own gym and using it whenever
you want... and once you join it is a lifetime membership. The best part is you do
not have to change your life just your shoes.
"I've done those stupid wealth affirmations until I am blue in the face
and they just don't work..." Or "That
Free 60 Day
Abundance Healing Program...
like it really has any chance of working, please
gimme a break!" Or "I just cannot get a break... every single time I get money
ahead, disaster strikes and it is gone in 60 seconds!"
Sound familiar? It does to me... I hear it all the time as in "I would
love to get your healing services but... I just cannot afford them now..." And
yet those who are truly in need always manage to afford them "somehow". Just as
when something REALLY HAS to get done, money will be "found".
So you wonder, how is it that "good people just cannot make good money"...
except "somehow" when they really "need it"? The answer is simpler than you might
imagine... when "good people" really "need" money, it comes to them... but when
they just "want" it, it flows away from them in a heartbeat.
This money paradox can be explained quite easily... from deeply rooted FEARS
of money ingrained in people during one or more past lifetimes. So what is there to
fear from what essentially boil down to little slips of paper and metal disks? You
can find out by completing the following sentences.
Before you start, there is a catch...
You must complete the following sentences
as quickly as you can - without thinking - while giving different answers every time.
You have to do it for 5 minutes... and it is preferable if you can speak your answers
into a tape recorder. That way you can playback what your subconscious mind is telling
you about your true, deep seated beliefs about money and your relationship with it.
"Money brings me..."
"Money makes me feel..."
"Money is ____ because..."
"More money will change my life because..."
"To get more money I would have to..."
"Because I am a good person, I felt that money..."
If you are honest with yourself and put a sincere effort into doing this
exercise, the answers are very likely to surprise you. What will not surprise you
is how you have manifested the financial situation that you have based on your true
beliefs. For only when you know what your true beliefs are... can you release what
no longer serves you and manifest the life that you truly desire. And money is an
important part of that life because "it is everywhere you want to be!"
On our journey through the universe, there are two things that we cannot avoid having
a relationships with... and that is sex and money. As a result, our past lives heavily
influence our attitudes about them, especially about sex. Although the more common
application of past life therapy is to deal with the origins of sexual dysfunction
(like female frigidity or male impotence), the more interesting aspect is how our
past life experiences are responsible for present day sexual attitudes.
Just as intense past life pain leaves it's imprint on our lives, so too does
intense pleasure. The most common "pleasure imprint" from past lives shows up in the
kinds of people and experiences that we are sexually attracted to.
For example, I have had many clients ask why they have found themselves
very attracted to people of certain races, religions, and national origins... especially
when these are different from those they have currently incarnated into (ie. Caucasians
who are drawn to Asians, Catholics who are drawn to Jews, and so on).
The answer is these attractions were formed in past lives when they were
the same race, religion, etc as those they are attracted to now and because they had
super satisfying sex back then. Yet the most intense pleasure imprints from past lives
are those involving sexual fantasies. The body and mind naturally gravitate toward
pleasure and away from pain... and they are very strongly attracted to intense pleasure
and driven to recreate the event(s)which originally created it.
Since everything begins as a thought, past life sexual pleasure directly
translates into present life sexual fantasies... which the individual will be
powerfully led to recreate... which in turn just reinforces the power of the fantasy.
In the books, "My Secret Garden" and "Forbidden Flowers" by Nancy Friday,
a common theme in women's sexual fantasies is the "forced" abduction and rape scenario.
As Friday is quick to point out, none of the women who fantasize about rape really
want to be brutalized or harmed in any way.
What these women really want is to experience wild passion without having
to ask for it or admit they desire sexual pleasure. This is a carry over from their
past life beliefs reinforced by religion and society that "only bad women" want sex...
and a "forced rape" is how they can get it and still be a "good person".
How you can find out the past life origins of your personal sexual fantasies
is to use the "Unleashing Past Life Talents" exercise below. Instead of asking to
be shown the origin of your past life talents, ask to be shown the past life origins
of sexual fantasies. Since this is a pleasurable pursuit, you should have no problem
in finding out just where you had a "blast in the past"! Your body will be happy
Can you remember a time when... your life was good and you felt as if
everything was "under control"? But now - in the post September 11th world - do
you feel as if life "ain't no damn picnic" and that little or nothing is "under
control"? If so... then maybe you are undergoing the process of the Soul's Journey
of Awakening... as more people are doing than ever before... everywhere all around
Of course, you might be thinking that you are already awake... I mean it is
pretty hard to read a newsletter in your sleep. (If someone out there does know how
to read while sleeping, please let me know... that would be a real time saver!).
So what awakening means is this... That you inhabit a body but you are not
your body. That you use a mind but you are not your mind. That you have emotions
but you are not your emotions. That you are spirit come to Earth to have a human
experience... to experience what it is like to inhabit bodies of all different genders,
races, etc, to use minds of all different levels of skills and abilities, and to have
and to manage (or mismanage) all different kinds of emotions.
As your spirit "drives the bus" of your life more, you cannot help
but undergo certain physical, mental, and emotional changes. If you are currently
experiencing many of the following "symptoms" than it is likely that you are in the
process of the Soul's Journey of Awakening:
- Intense, vivid, lucid dreams
- Disturbed patterns of sleeping
- Disrupted physical or mental functioning
- Disrupted emotional or spiritual functioning
- Feeling inner emptiness or inner loneliness
- Sudden changes in career or relationships
- Sudden changes in personality or habits
The "good news" about "awakening" is that it will put you on the path to
greater love, joy, and awareness. The "bad news" is that this path is strewn with
the lessons that you need to learn in order to become a fully realized spiritual being.
Of course, you do not have to learn your lessons... in this life... but if
you choose to avoid them, do not be surprised to find yourself "doing hard time on
From MSNBC News "My Mother's Illness": "Mom, what are you doing?" I pleaded.
"They're here," she screamed, her voice redolent with panic and fear. "Who?" I
walked into the living room and started to pull the curtain aside, but my mother
came up behind and tackled me onto the couch. "Get down," she said, clutching me
in her arms. "They're trying to kill us!" She was trying to protect her children,
but she didn't move fast enough to protect me from the truth. There was nobody
outside at all, and the only thing stalking our family was a terrible disease that
was destroying my mother's mind."
"Schizophrenia and other severe mental illnesses are more common than
we want to believe. They are egalitarian in their impact, schizophrenia alone affecting
2.5 million Americans. It doesn't matter if you're Marilyn Monroe's mother or the
Nobel prize-winning mathematician John Nash... Those people who avert their eyes or
wrinkle their nose in disgust at the soiled and homeless man mumbling to himself in
the park would probably be appalled if someone did the same to an Alzheimer's
patient. Schizophrenia is a brain disease."
A better analogy to Delusional Schizophrenia is not Alzeheimer's Disease
but blindness and deafness. Everyone has sympathy for these kinds of disabilities.
This sympathy comes from the fact that "I understand my eyes can process light
and my ears can process sound. I realize how these allow me to cope with the challenges
of my environment in a way you cannot. Because I am able to understand how your
eyes cannot work, I have compassion for your situation."
For people whose eyes process light that ours cannot see or whose
ears process sound that ours cannot hear... we cannot understand and so it is
easier for us to decide that these people have "a brain disease". History teaches
that people fear what they do not understand.
Of course those who "see or hear what is not there" - from the standpoint of
this physical reality - are very prone to making decisions that are at best are
inappropriate and at worst are destructive to themselves and others around them. Yet
perhaps the most difficult consequence of their karmic condition is the lack of
love and understanding from those around them.
So the next time you see a Schizophrenic perhaps you can come from a new
place of understanding. A place where you say "I understand you have greater
access to the inner worlds than I do. I understand how difficult it is to perceive
inner realities & have no one understand because they cannot see or hear those for
themselves. I understand and salute your courage for taking on one of the toughest
challenges the Earth has to offer." Good karma points await you if you do.
For the whole story on "My Mother's Illness" go to MSNBC News.
At the 74th Academy Awards (OSCARS), a very interesting question was asked... "how
have the movies effected you?" Various celebrities went on to name movies that touched
them... and all of them had one thing in common. That the movie spoke strongly to
past experiences in this... or other lives.
Many people's journeys of exploration into past lives often begin at the movies.
For example, in 1970, when the movie "Patton" (about the legendary and controversial
General George S. Patton jr) came out, that was my first clue to my own past lives.
People literally did not want to be around me because I would drag them out
to see it! Being a fourteen year old girl... lots of people thought it strange that
I would be so very interested in a war movie. They thought it was stranger still
that I even read the 1,000 plus page book on Patton by Ladislas Farago, "Patton: Ordeal
and Triumph" (believe me only military types could have found that book interesting...
it was a bit of an ordeal itself!).
Having been a General in many past lifetimes - with a command style very
similar to Patton's - cleared up the mystery of why I loved that movie! I will never
forget the scene in that movie where Patton stops the jeep at the site of the ancient
battle of Carthage. He tells his driver all about the siege of that ancient and noble
city... and that he had been there... in a past life.
Patton had been a great believer in reincarnation and he even wrote this poem
on the subject. "Through a glass and darkly, the age old strife I see, where I fought
in many names, in many guises... but always me". (Not bad for an age old soldier!)
So if you want to know more about yourself in past lives... look at the movies
that touch you to the very core of your being. For in those movies, you will see
"through a glass and darkly" who you have been somewhere in time... in another life.

Inspirational Quote for the Month:
"The judgment of others does not change who I am. Quite the opposite is true.
It reveals who they are. Those who deem me unworthy at a glance and pass me by, have
my blessing to keep walking, for they have a long way to go. They have not reached
the point where they are able to see and appreciate me for who I am."
Good Deed for the Month:
The Rainforest Site "was founded to help protect our environment. Visitors
can save 14.4 square feet of rainforest with the 'click of a button'. Consider that
two precious acres of rainforest are being lost every second but... The Amazon Basin
alone stores two-thirds of all the Earth's fresh water. Tropical rainforests provide
between 25% and 40% of all pharmaceutical products. Of the three thousand plants that
have anti-cancer properties, 70% of them inhabit the rainforests. The donations to
save the rainforest are distributed by The Nature Conservancy and are paid for by
the site's sponsors."
