Hello, Vibrant Reader!
As it has finally warmed up here in Western Oregon, all the flowers seemed to literally POP out. All that beauty had been just waiting inside of brown, dull stems, and short green stubs the whole winter, and suddently, WHA-LA! Exquisite beauty. It is such a metaphor for our own being, and how it is so easy to see our lives in the context of winter. We know the beautiful blooms of being are within us, yet so often the blooming part escapes us. It's usually some "reason" we can't just "do it," that is held in place by some incorrect belief.
This leads me to mention Dr. Keith Ablow. I loved his TV show that was on for one season in the early afternoon, and although the show is no longer being broadcast, he has moved his enlightened form of psychotherapy to the Web at livingthetruth.com. One area of the website was particularly meaningful to me, about what he calls "shields." He says, "Shield strategies are counterproductive behaviors we engage in to distract ourselves from complicated chapters of our life stories. When you use one or more shield strategies you are needlessly running away from truths about your life experiences that, once accepted, will free you to create the life you deserve."
Some examples he gives of shields are, overeating, overspending, obsessing over a romantic relationship, constantly arguing with loved ones, obsessing over dieting, and several more. In order for these behaviors to continue there has to be some sort of justifying mechanism or denial in place.
To break the shield, the first step is, of course, realizing that it is there. Then, simply resist it. This gives you insight into the extent of the shield and valuable information on how to lower it, and then manage it. Great stuff!
Until next time...

Manifest with Motion: Taking the Grind out of Work
Our resident Life Coach and Synergy Specialist, Charly Emery looks at how we often see our goals in the harsh light of how much work there is to do. Maybe our lens is skewed because of wrong thinking about what "work" actually is. That wrong thinking can make your goals seem much harder to attain than they need to be. Charly says, "There is a work element within everything we do; adjusting your perspective to optimize your relationship to work can be invaluable in helping you manifest what you desire in all areas of your life. With phrases like, 'Climbing the ladder to success,' and, 'Anything worthwhile requires hard work,' it's no wonder we assume creating any kind of positive change and success in our lives could be difficult and cumbersome." >>>> MORE
Hook your body up to a life energy battery! Give your body the energy it needs to heal itself. Most naturopathic physicians will tell you that the main problem with giving herbal formulas or homeopathics, is that very often their patients' bodies lack enough ENERGY to fully utilize the healing properties of the medicines. To help fix this, the doctors will then prescribe dietary fasts, massage or acupuncture in an attempt to get energy into the body system. Once this has been done, then the herbal formulas will have much more punch and less waste.
Modern-day quantum physics has begun to scientifically explain these ancient practices, and new technologies are now available as a result. Quantum physics refers to this life energy, or "chi," as SUBTLE ENERGY. Without having to get too technical, the laws of quantum physics allow that life energy can be transferred from one substance to another. This is where the Life Energy Super Pack comes in... >>>> MORE INFO
By Dr. DicQie Fuller-Looney, Women's Health is a definitive look at the relationship between digestive enzymes and hormones, and how hormonal imbalances in women can be traced back to enzyme deficiencies. This book is a logical, no-nonsense evaluation of the current medical approaches that overlook digestive enzymes as an ultimate solution. Dr. Fuller-Looney makes her case by showing that the symptoms of protein malabsorption are the same as the symptoms of menopause. DOWNLOAD HERE
