As I close the year, I'm closing it with my own health opportunity. Over the past ten years we've helped thousands of people make their way back to a more vibrant life. Now I find myself doing my own coaching on myself. In other words, the tables have turned, and I am offered an even deeper perspective on the practice I've done with others.
As you know, over the years I've enjoyed corresponding and speaking with you. There are some of you I speak to regularly, and others less frequently, but it has added so much richness to my world.
The balance of this year has been spent in sunny San Diego, California. Some of that time I served as a missionary at the Optimum Health Institute, some of that time I spent studying and practicing Ayurvedic medicine in association with Deep Healing Yoga at the Ginseng Yoga Studio. And a large part of it has been seeking the proper medical care, both allopathic, integrative and holistic, to address and deal with my challenging health opportunity.
A dear spiritual friend of mine is a priest in the heroic and flag-waving New York City, the Lady of Liberty. This priest works with street people--those whom others consider a lost cause. I wanted to share his communication to me, as it touched me deeply. I hope in sharing this communication to all of you, it may touch you as it did me, and put in perspective the true meaning of celebrating with our loved ones.
My Beloved Shay,
While hearing from you delighted my heart, the message was saddening. It always brings up the obviously unanswered question: Why do good people suffer? From the first time we communicated I felt a bond with you and a deep connection.
When somehow in the Grand Matrix an email arrived from Pure Energy Rx with your name attached, I was so happy. I immediately called Boyd and asked for you, followed by placing an order which I will do again in the very near future.
We have an expression in Latin,"Cor ad Cor Loquitor", meaning Heart speaking to Heart. From my priestly heart I send you Love, Love,and more Love. I send supportive energy to Boyd who is there by Divine Providence to care for you. Now more than ever you will be in my thoughts and prayers. I will be in touch, Dearheart.
Blessings and Love from above and below, Father V.J.R.,D.D.
Until next time...
In vibrant health,
Shay Arave, President

Candice Covington's Tattvas Oils & Amuletsl
I've carried Candice's remarkable essential oils and magical amulets for a couple of years now, and continue to be more and more impressed with the power and beauty of these oils and amulets. Candice's newsletter for November features the archetypes of AIR. She says, "Our new ideas and deepest longings are no longer just concepts -- now is the time for living out what we have dreamed into being! We will explore some archetypes that will help clear away any vestiges of the old and out-dated, purifying, amplifying and supporting beautiful new growth." She recommends Kaffir Lime Leaf oil with the Air Amulet in promoting freedom from attachments (dogmatic, emotional, etc.) and fosters love of all types, forgiveness and compassion.
Candice is also presenting a new 5-day "Beyond Belief" retreat called Evolution through the Elements (located in Huatulco, Mexico). This retreat is designed to take you on a mythic journey through the deepest layers of Self as you heal, open, rejuvenate and step into the fullness of who you are.
Laura Plumb's Food: A Love Story
I love this blog by Laura. She is the wife of my yoga teacher, Bhava Ram here in San Diego. They both teach a form of yoga called Deep Yoga, and practice the Ayurvedic lifestyle of balanced nutrition, with a balanced emotional and spiritual life.
In her blog, Laura offers a collection of nourishing recipes, ideas, photographs and links to help feed you ~ with a gentle reminder that throughout time, and now more than ever, the best medicine always has been nature’s nourishment. She says, "In my work I have found that the greatest need most people have is for real, true, deep and enduring nourishment. Nature is solid comfort, and nourishing in so many ways. It inspires us with beauty; engages our senses with aromas, colors, tastes; offers us places to play, run free; and its rhythms help restore us. Of course, nature gives us the healthiest food available to sustain vitality and strength, and it is intelligent enough to provide seasonally varying harvests to balance us through the wax and wane of each year."
Rodney Schwan, Aromatherapist Extraordinaire
I've been working with Rodney for a few months now, and I believe he is a true wizard. He is a master aromatherapist, massage therapist, and integrative medicine consultant, and he is truly changing lives. (See his website).
I had the honor of helping Rodney promote his Sacred Art of Wellness workshop here in San Diego this past month. The workshop was a great success, and everyone was moved and inspired by his wealth of knowledge on the subject of the power of scent over wellness. Both Boyd and I were deeply impressed with his one-on-one sessions, with Boyd reporting that it changed his life.
Rodney is in the unique position of using aromatherapy alongside allopathic medicine doctors at the Institute of Palliative Medicine for the San Diego Hospice. The organization is one of the largest hospice and palliative care programs in the United States. More than 800 hospice staff and 600 volunteers annually care for over 4,000 adult and pediatric patients and their families, as well as more than 12,000 bereaved clients. Rodney is there with his angelic presence, deep metaphysical understanding, and his amazing aromatherapy.
Rodney will present his next workshop in February in Sacramento, as well as another in San Diego later. Email me for more info as it becomes available.
Feng Shui Quickies
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." (Edith Wharton)
