Resist Rampant Dumbf***ery By Mark Sheehan “We are the United States of Amnesia; we learn nothing because we remember nothing.” - Gore Vidal “[T]here is a psychotic refusal to understand that the survival of the species is connected to the survival of the planet.” - Arundhati Roy The wave of nationalism and populism that has popped up around the world has its roots in the destructive wars this country has waged in the Balkans and Middle East. Those ‘regime change’ wars killed hundreds of thousands, destroyed vast regions, and turned millions into migrants who fled their native lands for safety and life in Europe. Nothing like it has occurred since the second world war. The next global crisis is being openly planned by chicken hawks Mike Pompeo and ‘Bomb Bomb Bolton’ who insists the Iraq war was worthwhile and aches to invade Iran. Polls reveal that parents have no wish to see more of their young come home in body bags. But war with Iran is on a fast track. Someone said, “Yes, many Americans will die in a war with Iran…as in Iraq. But that is a sacrifice Israel is willing to make.” How is it that the neocons and the Pentagon chiefs have not learned humility from the defeats we suffered in Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and Syria? These wars created a trillion-dollar arms industry while bankrupting the country. To understand how it all works, listen to Joe Rogan’s interview with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. Considered a long shot in the presidential race, Tulsi’s courage and clarity make her stand out from the pack. The war mongering is happening against the

backdrop of a constitutional crisis in the country and a climate crisis for the planet. The May 14th reading from Mauna Kea scientists clocked a bell-ringing CO2 level of 415 parts per million. The last time this happened was three million years ago when sea levels were estimated to be ninety feet higher. Petroleum industry heads knew this forty years ago but covered up evidence, putting profits ahead of people and planet. Having lost three decades, we now need radical action to minimize species loss and to prevent increasingly destructive storms, fires and hurricanes. Governor Inslee’s $9 trillion proposal would be a strong start. Not sure yet about the climate crisis? See the Bill Nye skit from John Oliver’s show. On the almost human front, because of years of clever planning by the GOP dominance in state politics, women’s rights are being rolled back as states compete for the dumbf***ery award regarding women and their right to choose. In May, Georgia passed a ‘heartbeat’ abortion bill making it a felony to terminate a pregnancy as early as six weeks. That legislation followed an equally restrictive Ohio bill that if passed will require a raped 11-year-old to bear a child. Missouri and ten other states are consider-

ing similar bills. Alabama won the Handmaid’s Tale prize for mean-spirited male chauvinism when 26 men voted to make abortion a felony with no exceptions for rape or incest. Where does all this hate come from? “All violence,” said Marshall Rosenberg, “is the result of people tricking themselves into believing that their pain derives from other people and that consequently those people deserve to be punished.” Have we slipped through one of those cracks in time, and been brought back to the 1950s? Maureen Dowd thinks so. She wrote, “Trump always seems like someone who walked out of a Vegas steam bath in 1959. And now the whole country is starting to smell of moth balls.” It is worth reading some history to understand how we got into such a mess. Start with Kurt Andersen’s Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire. It’s a 500-year history of science denial and fundamentalist bunkum mixed with confusion about what is portrayed in movies and on television, with real life. A must read. As George Clooney warns, “dumbf***ery” is rampant. But Sisterhood is powerful, and the movement for social and racial justice and equity is rapidly gaining ground. If such rampant misogyny concerns you, join the new SuperMajority movement where you can get news, training and inspiration.

Finding Inner Peace

“No one can find inner peace except by working, not in a self-centered way, but for the whole human family.” - Peace Pilgrim I woke up this morning with a warm breeze wafting across my face, a peaceful feeling, and the promise of another magnificent day in Hawaii. With all the turmoil in our lives and in the world, is it possible for us to find inner peace? I admit I rarely have felt it or sought it, but in the process of contemplating peace, I definitely felt it emerge from within. For me, knowing that I love myself, that others love me and, most importantly, that God loves me, fuels the feeling of inner peace. In my meditations, letting go and being held in the Presence allows me to trust the process of life itself – that all good is unfolding despite how my life sometimes appears. I like what Peace Pilgrim has to say – that inner peace is elusive unless we all strive, in small and big ways, to benefit the whole human family; and as well, I believe, to protect and restore our planet. Enjoy the issue and may it bring some sense of peace to your life! - Eric T. Richter, publisher

Dying To Find Inner Peace?

By Lisa Jones Most people are afraid of death. Not only afraid, but terrified. The thought of losing a loved one or pondering one’s own demise, is frightening for many. The ironic thing is that once you face the fear of death, and even welcome the notion, an immense amount of inner peace comes your way. Please don’t take my words lightly. A lot of work is involved in facing your fear of death. This task requires contemplation, journaling, emoting and digging deep into your thoughts, feelings and emotions. One of the best ways I’ve discovered to face your fear of death, is to imagine yourself on your deathbed and ask yourself a series of questions. Do I have any regrets? Who mattered most to me in my life? What do I wish I could do over? To whom do I owe an apology? To whom do I owe a note of appreciation for how they helped me in life? How could I have loved more fully? In reflecting back on my life, am I content or agitated? Once you’ve answered these questions, you’ll be able to take action on what you’ve discovered. It’s never too late to make a change in your life, to make amends, or to tell someone you love and appreciate them. Even if that person has passed, you can still write a letter with the intention of them receiving it in Spirit. Getting your life in order, from the perspective of looking back at it from the end of your life, is a tremendous way to gain inner peace in a very rational, methodical way. Life and death are two sides of the same coin. By coming to terms with death, the inner peace you find will be priceless. Lisa Jones is an author, speaker, Maui IANDS co-leader, and podcaster.

Peace Booms Amidst Noise By Gayle Barklie Sitting in a parking lot between appointments on an important business call, a lowrider car careened in with boombox blaring. Instant annoyance; my unswerving inner peace peeved. What an insecure, attention-starved jerk, I thought, indignantly. His serendipitous timing offering impeccable inspiration for this article, didn’t slip my awareness. Noticing this out-of-character judgmentalness, I hastily adjusted my irritation level by thinking, Wow, he’s probably just terrified to be acting so over-the-top flamboyantly! Peace returned by shifting to compassion. A few years ago, that wouldn’t have occurred. Likely I would’ve yelled some colorful *expletives* out the window, perhaps flipping him off. Nowadays, calm is my normal. How did I get here? Not by faking it or suppressing emotions. Peacefulness arrived by practicing what I preach. Buttons that generated upsetting emotions, negativity or judgments, became opportunities to unlock personal issues. Disturbing situations were explored as accurate mirrors of leftover denial. My inner-discovery shovel was always poised. Mr. Boombox (loudly) exposed my own lingering insecurities, my own need for attention, and – dare I admit – my own ‘jerkiness.’ He reminded me of my own fears, my own over-the-top behavior – sometimes neatly concealed. Incredibly, his disruptiveness prompted memories from long-forgotten past lives where I’d done annoying things to others. Of course, I don’t do any of these things as noisily as Mr. B., but apparently I needed deafening wake-up booms to really ‘hear’ myself. As he barreled off, I thanked him energetically for his perfectly timed encounter, this gift of self-awakening and split-second karmic clean-up. A fleeting present of presence, gained from what could’ve been perceived as very justified irritation.

Tame Your Ego For Lasting Happiness By Paul O’Brien A common spiritual trope is that we should get rid of ego. The word can even make us cringe or feel guilty. We try to suppress parts of ourselves, but to operate in the world we can use a strong sense of self. When kept in its place, a healthy ego is extremely beneficial. It helps us get things done and express the unique gifts of who we are. Ego can feel separate, unloved and threatened, afraid of intimacy and afraid to let love in. On the useful side, its basic job is to defend us. We can allow it to relax its guard, feel less separate, and support our higher selves. But to insist on “no ego” is just an egoistic mentality struggling with itself. We can approach all ego actions with openness instead of judgment and channel them to serve the heart through authentic engagement and love. Whether you are coming from ego or from your heart is the central question regarding lasting fulfillment in life. Spiritual mystic Matt Kahn defines ego as “the imaginary identity of an overstimulated nervous system.” He characterizes an overstimulated nervous system as having a closed heart, a noisy mind, low self-esteem, with an ego that runs things like an overcontrolling commander-in-chief. We can learn to engage and integrate the ego as a competent lieutenant, who helps us get our needs met, while taking direction from the higher self. Gradually, we can unravel and heal our battered nervous systems. The keys are radical acceptance, compassion (including self-compassion), honesty and emotional receptivity. Just like


e are naturally wired to restore harmony and resiliency in our nervous systems and physiology. Over time, with support and practice, we can learn how to tune into these natural rhythms and develop a naturally coherent and regulated nervous system. Organic Intelligence® is a tool to help us feel more relaxed and resilient. It fosters kindness and compassion and allows alignment with what has deep meaning for us. This possibility is what inspires me to offer Organic Intelligence® to others.

its fears, the ego cannot be defeated, cured, or overcome. It evolves through our commitment to love ourselves and each other. When we let ourselves feel grief, rage, terror and other emotions, we can free the ego to better serve our soulful hearts. The ego is only capable of conditional love and tends to be transactional, and that’s okay under many circumstances. When the immature ego, weak and conflicted, is in control, however, it blocks fulfillment. According to Matt Kahn, the ego can be thought of as the “soul in incubation.” We process ego stages of development in trying to attain security, pleasure and power. It’s only when we get stuck on one of these three lower levels of consciousness that the ego’s control bites us. (Eckhart Tolle refers to this as the “pain body.”) The soul, or higher self, is a wave on the cosmic sea, connected to all. Unconditional love comes via the soul, via a heart-centered higher consciousness. Whether we know why or how, everything is here to help us in making the transition from ego-centered to heart-centered. “While the ego judges each feeling solely on how painful or pleasant it is, the soul views each emotion while it lasts as an opportunity to love itself,” writes Kahn. Instead of fighting our ego, let’s learn to embrace it, listen to it and from that, grow and learn. In truth, through all the changes we can’t control, through all the pain and suffering of its dissatisfactions, the ego is evolving to serve the heart. Although it hurts sometimes, love is our only fulfillment … more than worth the price. Paul O’Brien is author of Great Decisions, Perfect Timing and the “Visionary I Ching” App, host of Pathways podcasts, and founder of Paul had the pleasure of interviewing Matt Kahn (spiritual teacher, healer and author) on his Pathways podcast ( and recently attending his three-day retreat in Portland, Oregon.

Truth Has A Calming Effect By Mary-Allana Holmes A very wise Hawai’i radio announcer recently philosophized that we have entered a time when it is crucial to look at the ideas and structures built in the past and critically decide what we want to keep, what we need to alter, and where we have to create something completely new. He ended with the words, “We need to ask the angels to help us decide.” Welcome to a new level of co-creation. What if we really do ask the angels to help us decide? The many realms of beings of Light consciousness are eager to help in our personal healing, soul growth, and creative, collaborative projects. Truth has a calming effect. We can recognize the energy of truth instinctively. It creates harmony out of uncertainty, and makes sense of things not complete. When we understand a situation that has eluded us, we receive a sense of peace that is the foundation of healing. This is the power of truth. There is no greater opportunity for peace and harmony than in opening to the intelligence of spirit. We may need a little bit of “hey, maybe” to acknowledge that spirit exists. It might take an acceptance that there’s something we can’t see accessing our higher good. It may open us to believing that we all are connected in a large-scale, multi-leveled experience of energy and intelligence – one that we are only beginning to tap into. This is the time to release the pieces of the past that no longer serve us, and to see how high we can reach. Mary-Allana Holmes has been communicating with ascended masters and nature devas for 14 years. They have become eager to assist us in personal healing and in creating a new Earth.

The Sound Of Silence

Being In The Now

Are you curious about the “Afterlife”?


By Sara Schroepfer In my 20s, I was on a quest for inner peace. I ventured to India hoping to find what I was looking for. After months of travel, I ended up at an ashram outside of Rishikesh in the Himalayan foothills. I thought this was it, that I would sit on a meditation cushion and fall into a state of bliss. To my surprise, the loud noise of construction next door interrupted any peace on the ashram grounds. My time coincided with the building of a dental hospital! There were bellowing cows, beeping cars, yelling, dust, dirt, and more. My illusion burst. Regardless, I rose daily at 5:30 a.m. to sit on my cushion at the meditation hall. Eventually, I began to notice the outside world less. Perhaps meditation arose out of India, which has over one billion people, precisely because there was nowhere to go but within to find peace and quiet here. I lapsed into 11 days of Silence. My mind quieted when I entered the void. In this place I found serenity and so much more. I profoundly experienced the rich world of senses in a way I never had before because all the noise had fallen away. I tasted the flavors of my food with awareness. I listened to birds on walks instead of music. I received ayurvedic massage, deepening connectivity through touch. Aromas wafted to me across the garden; colors brightened and sounds sharpened. I disengaged from drama, let go of resentments, and for the first time I listened to my inner wisdom. I fully entered the vibration of love and creation with no distraction. I accepted everything exactly as it was. Within that realization I found the freedom from disturbance and dove into tranquil waters. It was a journey worth taking!

By Joe Swartz, M.D. Inner peace. Some call it the peace of God or the peace that passes all understanding. Einstein said that the biggest decision anyone will make in their life is whether the world is dangerous or benign. We all are the result of the teaching and training of a fear-based world. Finding inner peace begins with seeing that although there may be dangerous situations, the world is not a dangerous place; it is benign. According to Dr. David Hawkins, perception is not a fact, but a projection of your state of mind or level of consciousness. If I am in a state of depression or apathy, the world looks dark and overwhelming. If I am in anger, attack is everywhere, especially in myself. Of course, we all make the same mistake by looking outside of ourselves for peace. But nothing outside of ourselves can give us inner peace. We especially look to a special man or woman to make us happy or peaceful. True happiness is an aspect of inner peace. True happiness does not change. It is the same whether the times are good or bad. A key to finding true happiness is to give up all grievance. Everything is perfect, whether you realize it or not. Finding inner peace ends with ‘being here now’ – that is, being in this instant with no past and no future. This is the entrance to the state of inner peace. Joe Swartz, M.D. is an advanced Rolfer who has been successfully treating chronic pain that has failed all other treatments for 30 years. Call Dr. Joe at 808.344.0244 to learn how you can painlessly heal from headaches, PTSD, TMJ, sciatica, and back, neck, shoulder, knee, abdominal and post-operative chronic pain.

Getting Your Hands Dirty For Authentic Inner Peace By Ania Ananda Wood Spiritual bypass is a trap that keeps inner peace unattainable. On the path of awakening, first we shake off the mainstream cultural trance that reinforces complaining and playing victim. This is a good thing; this is moving toward genuine empowerment when we stop giving our power away to complaints and start engaging more with the world as conscious creators. People come to understand that their thoughts and mindsets influence their reality – so far so good. But they get into trouble when they silently censor their inner worlds and deem certain authentic emotions as negative or toxic. It gets even more difficult to touch true inner peace when these emotions are judged and shamed and made inaccessible for clearing through labeling them as not spiritual enough, or as proof of failure in your evolutionary path. Let’s say you have a poop-covered diamond. It’s not pretty and it’s starting to smell. So you decide to cover the whole thing in paint – pretty sparkly rainbow iridescent paint! There, now you don’t have to touch anything gross. It looks good from far away. And it looks amaaazing in Instagram photos. Everyone is jealous of your sparkly pretty sh*t stone! You just have to kinda keep it at a distance from others – the paint might crumble off if handled too much, and people who get too close could notice that it doesn’t quite smell right. So now you’re spending all your energy keeping it far enough away and repainting the cracks so that sh*t stays well hidden. That is spiritual bypass in a nutshell. Our fearbased mental programs hack into this “spiritual” identity and slip in a virus of sorts – this idea that we should shame ourselves for simply experiencing

the full range of human emotional experience, and that if life is not totally chill then we must be doing it wrong. The real shame is that for most humans, authentic inner peace can only come through a process of clearing and alchemizing stuck “negative” emotions. Let’s take the example of a love relationship. Deep intimacy can bring up our most tender wounds. Because that energy of love is calling all of ourselves to be present, it can call up old wounded parts from the shadows. So a couple might find themselves recycling the same fight as they cross a threshold of deeper commitment to one another.

The spiritual bypassing path through this experience looks like avoiding confrontation, doubling down on your ego’s desire to appear “above” the messy human conflict by intellectualizing away the emotions, and subsequently feeding a growing distance and rift in the intimacy because you both aren’t authentically present to the full energy dynamics of the relationship. The authentically embodied path through the same experience looks like making a lot of space inside to welcome the unpleasant emotions as information to get curious about. It might lead to inner emotional alchemy work, finally releasing trapped trauma imprints, and pulling out the root of the dysfunctional pattern that creates the fight that keeps getting recycled. When we do this trauma healing work, it can feel like finally letting our inner child’s heart finish breaking – in contrast to living with an unconscious “pause” button that is active in regards to our deepest pains, which just keeps that pain available for recycling. It is such tender work, needing a lot of space and compassion around it. It’s not exactly light and fun and easy; but it’s like getting your hands dirty for a brief moment, running some soap and water over the hidden gems of your spirit, and actually scrubbing that sh*t off the diamond. It is briefly messy, but then you end up living with the real diamond of your spirit getting to shine in your world! And that is so worth a bit of gritty work that involves getting real with yourself. Ania Ananda Wood, MA, M-NLP loves empowering her clients to create the lives and relationships of their dreams.

Singleness Be Gone!

By Marsha Wald I wish I had a magic wand to vanish singleness from this land! Everyone would have their mate and loneliness would fade. Is this wishful thinking, or is it possible? Before you start judging, pause for a moment. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, relax and be honest. I ask you to answer these very hard questions: 1) Do you remember the exact moment when you realized you wanted to be in the company of someone other than yourself? 2) Where did that feeling, thought or desire arise from? 3) Was it outside of yourself or a yearning from inside of you? I have never met a hermit in all my travels, though I am sure they exist somewhere. I believe we all have our mates! Abraham Maslow (often referred to as the father of the humanist movement) ranked social needs as number three in his hierarchy of needs. We all have a person or persons we enjoy and naturally desire to connect with. If we can tap into that energy and focus, then we have the ability to draw to us our mates. I have met many people who practice the art of manifestation, yet I am repeatedly told the hardest thing to manifest is a mate. I beg to differ. I manifested my mate before I manifested my dream car. But could that be because the desire for my mate was created earlier than the desire for my dream car? Desire has been proven to move us into action. I challenge you. The next time you complain about being single, recycle that energy to strengthen your focus and intentionally channel it into companionship. Marsha Wald is the founder of Art of Living Maui. She has a passion to help people achieve their best by offering tools that are practical and applicable such as feng shui, life strategies coaching, Reiki and numerology.

Exploring Chi Nei Tsang And Reichian Therapy By Sheri Brinks Chi Nei Tsang and Reichian therapy are both healing modalities that work with the breath to benefit the body, mind and spirit. Wilhelm Reich, a disciple of Sigmund Freud, broke away to develop a system of emotional healing and recovery based on his discovery that emotional blockages related to trauma stifle human vitality. The impact is felt physically, emotionally and mentally. His ideas were based on his discovery that the cells hold these traumatic memories. He developed a breathing technique that increases oxygen levels in the body, releasing more oxygen to the brain and opening the gates to the deeper unconscious. This process allows individuals to become more aware of their blocks and to release them, thus increasing their vitality and freeing them to make better choices in their lives. Chi Nei Tsang also works with the breath. It focuses directly on the abdomen and applies chi kung to the organs. It is a Taoist visceral manipulation bodywork which emphasizes moving chi energy to the abdominal organs. Developed by Taoist Master Mantak Chia as part of his Healing Tao System, it works on internal dysfunctions and energy blocks using the breathing exercises of chi kung, therapeutic manipulations, and meditation. I have studied and practiced many healing modalities, and find that Chi Nei Tsang and Reichian therapy are the most powerful healing modalities out there. If you have not received a Chi Nei Tsang or Reichian session, or you are ready to receive one again, I highly recommend giving yourself the gift to experience one of these healing modalities to benefit your body, mind and spirit! Sheri Brinks is founder of The 5 Element Dance Improv school and certified Chi Nei Tsang instructor. She offers private sessions, classes and workshops in Haiku and worldwide. Improv class one Saturday every month, and Chi Nei Tsang class July 19-21 in Haiku. For more information: 310.490.7493,,

Moving Towards Greater Peace By Katharine Stone Ayers Finding inner peace and balance is a process of discovering what is already intrinsic within us. Rather than focusing on what’s wrong, Organic Intelligence encourages us to orient toward simple human pleasures such as smelling a flower, enjoying a good meal, an intimate conversation with a friend or a beautiful sunset. Attention to what is pleasurable and satisfying helps to rewrite the brain in a healthy way. Gradually we find peace and become more resilient and in harmony with our biology. Check out the current research in books, YouTube videos and articles by Rich Hanson Ph.D. He explains, “Neurons that fire together, wire together.” Repeated patterns of positive reinforcement can bring about neural change and restructure the brain. You can use your mind to change your brain. This is called self-directed neuroplasticity. Mindfulness and compassion are the two pillars of Organic Intelligence. Mindfulness and external orientation encourage ‘here and now’ awareness. This brings the attention into the present, and away from ruminating on the past (which disorganizes the biology). Repeated practice of mindfulness and compassion fosters happiness, love and wisdom. The job of the Organic Intelligence therapist is to shepherd the client’s nervous system, physiology, and the direction of intrinsic patterns of self-organization and regulation. She attunes to the client’s spontaneous and organizing expression in image, sensation, orientation, cognition and emotion. She tracks how this occurs according to a specific three-phase protocol that supports the client to move from biological disorganization to biological organization. This cultivates greater ease, resilience and harmony in the client’s nervous system and life. We move towards greater peace and balance. Katharine Stone Ayers has a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and MA in counseling psychology. She has been in practice for over 40 years. She recently completed a three-year training in Organic Intelligence and was given a certificate as Organic Intelligence Expert in 2017. To contact Katharine call 808.572.4972. References:

Regaining Inner Calm

By Barbara Ensign Have you lost your inner peace and don’t know where to find it? Maybe you have forgotten what inner peace feels like. If we work or live in a stressful situation, we get in the habit of reacting to outside circumstances and forget about connecting with inner peace. How do we stay calm and connected with inner peace when there is chaos going on around us? As a hypnotist, I have had many clients who feel their life (or parts of it) is out of control. It feels to them like something or someone is always doing something to irritate them. With the help of hypnosis, you can regain that place of inner peace and calm in all areas of your life. Peace is not something that can be found outside of yourself. Of course there are things that you can do to feel peaceful temporarily, like taking a walk outside, meditating, or getting a massage; but true inner peace is when nothing or no one can disturb you no matter what or where you are. Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind to create new habits in relying on your inner self. Hypnosis helps you remember what inner peace feels like by recalling a positive time when you experienced that feeling of inner peace. Once you remember how it feels, you can return to that peaceful place inside any time that you want or need to – all with the power of your own mind. With the help of hypnosis, you can remember to make inner peace a priority in your life and peace will become a place that you come from instead of a place you go to. Barbara Ensign is a certified hypnotherapist specializing in past life and life between lives spiritual regression. She has been serving people on Maui for over 16 years.

Saving Our Kids’ Brains

By Judy Levy When I’m not finding good homes for my ‘crystal babies,’ I’m a substitute teacher. You could think of me as a ‘subversive sub,’ with my ultimate goal being to ‘activate’ a few kids each week to claim and honor their unique purpose here and to encourage their independent thinking. I address them as the ‘special children’ who have come to save the planet; with their evolved brains, they will have ideas that were not accessible to our generation. We need them now! The kids open up to me. It has become evident that many sleep with their cell phones! They wake up and play (addictive) games during the night and then they can’t sleep again, so a vicious cycle forms. I explain that we need to be away from any screen for at least an hour before going to bed to aid in the production of melatonin, which puts us to sleep. Adults need this information, too. Our kids’ brains are crucial to our future! Do we want to raise zombies or foster geniuses to come forth? A child’s brain is not fully developed until they are 25! Every night a kid sleeps with his phone, some studies show that harmful EMF radiation can cause neurological damage, destroying brain cells. As parents, tutus, aunties, etc., we must help stop this! Please inform everyone with kids to have this conversation and to put the phones away at night -- a minimum of 12 feet away. And maybe hide them from the kids who might just wake up to go find their little ‘game buddy’ while parents are sleeping. Judy Levy, Maui’s “crystal lady,” offers her exquisite crystal babies at her Mystic-Holistic Wellness Fairs (see Maui Vision listings) or by private appointment. Enjoy a “Judy’s Angelic Crystal Journey” to enhance your ascension, immune system and clarity. Call 808.269.7762 or email Watch for news of a new shop at Temple of Peace!

Drumming For Attunement By Luis De La Lama, Ph.D. When we were in our mother’s womb, we were nourished by the rhythmic beat of her loving heart. Once born, our own heart began drumming the beat that sustains our life. We are rhythm at the core. That’s why drumming can dramatically improve our mood, increase our feelings of connection to the whole of life, and improve our health and general wellbeing. Therapists now lead drumming circles in hospitals, rehab centers and nursing homes to help their patients boost their immune systems and find relief from anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and other psychological and medical conditions. And yet, these practitioners are only scratching the surface of the power of drumming. For thousands of years and across the globe, shamans have been drumming to access higher dimensions of consciousness, fight diseases at their spiritual and energetic root, communicate with spiritual beings, and tune their clients and their communities to the nourishing pulse of Creation. You should try it! For the drum circles I lead, participants just bring a drum or a rattle, or improvise one with household items. I don’t teach complicated rhythms because steady and simple drumming causes the greatest change. In time, participants deepen their connection with the invisible dimensions of nature, experience soul journey and retrieval, and make alliances with spiritual beings for healing, guidance and empowerment. Our shamanic drumming practice promotes inner peace, happiness, inspiration, appreciation of beauty, and feelings of purity, wonder and unconditional love while we enter the dreamtime dimensions. Come to our meetings at the Wailea Healing Center to heal, find wellbeing, and find out if you feel called to the wondrous shamanic universe! Luis De La Lama, Ph.D., professor of counseling and shamanic counselor/consultant, invites you to his shamanic drumming circles in Wailea on Sundays, 6:30-8:00pm (every two weeks starting on the full moon, June 16). Visit for details. To find out about other services, see or call 808.214.2922.

Relax Into Your Renewal!

By Maurgana Stiastny Life is quite hectic these days. Our society places so many demands on us, and as a result our sympathetic nervous system (associated with fightor-flight responses) is habitually engaged. We are often inundated by stress chemicals such as cortisol and adrenaline. Many of us are either not breathing properly or almost hyperventilating, which also places stress on the nervous system. As this state becomes ‘normalized,’ it becomes more difficult to sense that we are in distress. If we frequently react with fear, apprehension and anxiety, we need to moderate the sympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system, which conserves energy and slows the heart rate, is also known as the ‘rest and digest’ system. When it is activated, we are in the state that is regenerative for the body. There are different things we can do to activate the parasympathetic nervous system. One thing we can do is go outside and stand barefoot in the grass or sand; we can sink into Mother Earth to relax. Also, breathing techniques can be very helpful – for instance, Buteyko breathing (see the book The Oxygen Advantage) or yogic breathing methods can be very calming. Other ways to calm are through exercises such as somatics, yoga, tai chi, and qi gong. In addition, singing, getting plenty of good sleep, and avoiding blue light after dark are all very important. It may seem like no big deal to switch from the sympathetic to the parasympathetic nervous system, but in our culture many of us are stuck too long in the sympathetic response. Habitually being in the sympathetic response can cause inflammation, which is the root of many diseases in our modern culture. Make time in your day to ‘unplug’ – it’s vital to your health!

Peace Is A Matter Of Positioning

By Douglas J. Price Peace is not outside of you. It always exists within you, but when you don’t feel it, you’re not in position to connect inside of yourself. This happens because we get in our own way; that’s why we ‘lose it.’ Emotion and soul are so connected. The psyche is an extension of the soul. Our emotions are our gauge for whether we feel inner peace. To remain in peace, we need to observe all emotions on the spectrum (from sad to glad) with unconditional love, and allow the emotions to integrate without judgment and labels of ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ In plasma physics, both magnetic and gravitational fields are mediated by neutron (the physicality you live within), proton (which is your physicality) and electron (the soul of your personality). The same can be said about inner organs and tissues, the brain, and the psyche. In humans, our peace is disturbed by an unanticipated dramatic shock that changed the positions of our magnetic and gravitational field. When we resolve the issue by being aware of our dilemma or understanding the gravity of our situation, we then can magnetize opportunities to return to balance for inner peace. For example, when we suffer a conflict of heavy self-devaluation that goes right to the bone, osteoporosis can result. There is a change in information of the calcium deposition in that area of the body and emotional disturbances can result. Resolving the conflict and utilizing products that help rebalance the gravitational and magnetic field, will help recondition to set the balance in bone tissue for inner peace. Dr. Douglas J.

Dream Your Way To Peace

By Lalénya L. Vann If inner peace is a state of bliss, calm, balance and happiness in the moment — the ultimate ‘be here now’ with full acceptance of others and all life on Earth – then it is also a static state of stillness. As human beings living in the 3rd dimension, we are moving and learning on the path to pure love and enlightenment. So, the question is: How to hold love and stillness in our hearts, while dancing forward creatively on our paths? Our dreams may offer an answer. They give us guidance and solutions to who and where we are, and how to get to where we want to go. Every night they help us sort out and heal our psychic and emotional selves. They teach us, offer solutions, and show us alternate ways of thinking, doing and living. They also guide us toward finding our still point, our inner peace. ‘Waking dreams,’ also known as Shamanic Journeying –which involves traveling to other worlds and dimensions with the repetitive percussion beat of a drum or rattle – can offer the same guidance and inspiration as night dreams. Keeping a journal, sharing dreams, and learning to interpret them yourself are the keys to harvesting inner peace blessings and benefits from your dreams. Write your dream, give it a title, and note how you felt upon awakening. I find that writing out my dreams and noticing the words I choose are extremely helpful in interpreting my dreams. Sharing them with others and getting their feedback, associations and insights, usually opens new understanding, as everyone sees dreams and life from a different point of view! Lalénya L. Vann is an artist and certified instructor with the Robert Moss School of Active Dreaming.

The Four Corners Of Love™ - Part 2

Decoding The Structure Of Relationships

By Paul Gotel Every human relationship falls into one of the following four categories: Lover, Friend, Partner or Colleague. In the last issue of Maui Vision Magazine, we explored the Lover and Friend. In this issue, we will explore the Partner and Colleague. The 4 Corners of Love™ model separates the different aspects of relationships into four corners, and avoids the confusion of a single ideal. It identifies what is working (strong areas) and which areas need attention (growth areas). In the third corner we have the Partner; its main goal is to be infused with support. A supportive partner is one whose beliefs and values align with yours, and who supports your journey of evolution through bringing together the power of two when focused on the same goals for the relationship. When you share a similar ethos in life, it enables the partnership to be constructive and supports the expansion of each individual within it. By sharing the tasks of life, you can build respect and gratitude for each other as you walk life’s journey. Within the Partner corner are many aspects, including support, gratitude, beliefs and values, helpfulness, harmony, respect, communication, alignment, self-ownership, responsibility, effectiveness, consideration, reliability, etc. This is the logistics of the relationship – the

core operating behaviors that create an effective partnership. The function of being together has a positive effect on each person’s life, enabling each to achieve a higher degree of ease and flow. The sum of the pa rts lite ra lly equals more than the individuals. In the fourth corner we have the Colleague; its main goal is to be infused with inspiration. An inspiring colleague is someone who in their outward interaction with life, has a job or mission or vocation that they are intrinsically motivated to engage in. Through this engagement they are inspired in their daily life to move forward with positivity and optimism. This creates aspiration in the people in their life who become inspired to do the same. Although these missions might be different or the same, the energy infuses the relationship with a constant source of evolution as each person brings in new bounty and information, creating an intrigue and fascination that prompts longevity

as the whole connection continues to evolve! As an example, when two people come together with fortitude in a common cause that they are each engaged in for their own positive reason, there is no pleasing each other here. Rather, there is an alignment that helps each person rise up in aspiration and can be the basis to build a whole relationship. Within the Colleague corner are many aspects, including inspiration, motivation, positivity, optimism, aspiration, evolution, intrigue, fascination, dedication, self-belief, fortitude, visionary, sharing, revitalizing, confidence, etc. This is the vision of the relationship – the sharing of each person’s dreams and goals that, when supported and allowed by each person, create an inspired connection. The opportunity of being together has a revitalizing effect on each person’s life, enabling each to achieve a higher degree of optimism and self-belief. This constant source of positivity infects the relationship with the bounty of new horizons and the confidence to rise to them.

Removing Your Splinters

By John Gelert, LMT Here are some ways to find inner peace and be happier: Spend some time alone – you are good enough by yourself. Focus on your breath – this calms your body and helps you to be present. Detach your mind from the past you can’t change and the future you can’t predict. Meditate. Meditation helps you cope with life and boosts empathy. Do mirror work. Say to yourself, “I love and approve of myself exactly as I am. I love you. I am loved.” Let go of the past. Accept the feeling of what someone did, and forgive them. Practice compassion – this opens your heart to be more positive and peaceful. Accept people for who they are without judgment. Don’t try to change people. Make no assumptions. Ask questions to avoid misunderstandings. Do good deeds to help someone – your kindness will be returned. Be assertive. You need to be in control of your life. There’s no need to please people. Solve a problem to release its underlying stress. Stop procrastinating. Focus on what you can control. Don’t get distracted and don’t try to do too much. Do fewer unimportant things, and set a time limit on them. Declutter. Organize your home and life to bring clarity to your mind. Develop a sense of humor – this produces calming hormones that feel good and heal the body. Eat healthy foods – these can increase focus and help you feel good about yourself. Exercise regularly. Exercise feels good, and is good for the body and the brain. Disconnect from technology for long periods of time. Spend time in nature. Walking in nature helps you feel more relaxed, peaceful and inspired. Do something relaxing that you enjoy. Enjoy a hobby, music, swimming, yoga, etc. Have a massage. Doing these things helps achieve a balanced lifestyle and keeps your sanity intact. John Gelert owns Lomi Hanamana Deep Tissue Massage Therapy in Kihei.

By Taryn Kama Sometimes small business clients ask me if they should use Twitter as part of their on-line marketing strategy. Usually, they are comfortable using Facebook and see the value of social media marketing. My answer is somewhat complicated, but here are the highlights. According to, Twitter is a social media platform that allows you to: “Follow everything from breaking news and entertainment to sports, politics, and everyday interests. Then, join the conversation.” Your post or ‘tweet’ must be 140 characters or less. Besides that, it functions much like Facebook. You post a photo and/or text and link back to a webpage, resource, article or video. Twitter uses ‘hashtags,’ meaning that when you post something with a “#” in front of it, that hashtag connects all those tweets. So when you want to know specific information, you just have to type in a hashtag in the search box. For instance, if there was a fire on Maui and you wanted the latest news, you could type in “#Mauifire” and all the posts would come up. The other nice thing about Twitter is that many influencers such as reporters and politicians use it, and you can message them directly. For instance, you could direct message Oprah Winfrey by using her handle (@Oprah). In deciding whether to use Twitter, you may want to consider who is using it. According to Omnicore, a digital marketing agency, there are 69 million U.S. users; roughly 46 percent are on daily and 36 percent are 18 to 29 years old. Seventy-four percent say they use Twitter to get their news, and 85 percent of small and medium business users use it to provide customer service.

By Erin Elster, DC Have you ever whiplashed your neck? Have you ever hit your head or suffered a concussion? Have you engaged in any high impact sports such as surfing, soccer, football or gymnastics? Have you taken any falls? Do you spend a lot of time working at a computer or slumped over a desk? If so, you may have sustained a misalignment of your head upon your neck; and without knowing it, you may have been living with, and compensating for, this misalignment for years! Each person’s head weighs ten pounds and is designed to sit precisely upon the center axis of the spine in order to distribute weight properly. If, due to trauma, the head is misaligned off of its center axis, it will sit ‘crooked’ upon the neck. Then the spine will compensate underneath and will twist, bend and torque in order to cope with the uneven weight distribution above. Symptoms of head / neck misalignment may include pain in the neck and back, TMJ dysfunction, headaches, dizziness, pinched nerves, numbness and tingling, muscle spasm, low energy, depressed mood, spinal curvature, and abnormal posture — to name a few. In order to determine whether you have sustained a head / neck misalignment, you can undergo an evaluation with a chiropractor specializing in the upper cervical (neck) spine. This rare specialty, known as upper cervical care, utilizes two diagnostic tools – thermal imaging and digital x-rays – to accurately assess your alignment. Each patient’s injured neck is corrected by administering a precise adjustment by hand on a specially-designed knee chest table. Many patients notice improvement in symptoms with just a few treatments. With over 20 years of experience as a specialist in the upper cervical spine, upper cervical chiropractor Dr. Erin Elster, D.C. has maintained a practice on Maui for the past six years. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact Dr. Elster in Kahului at 808.866.6551 or visit By Banu Sekendur When I connect with people’s energy, I can feel sometimes that something deep holds them back. A part of their soul is hiding behind a tree, wondering if it will ever be safe to come out to express its greatness. That wound, which is dissolvable by love, clogs up the flow of joy and abundance that wants to come into their lives. I call these blocks splinters. They are very much like the ones you might get on your toe and would limit how fast and how far you can walk. It could feel like a two-inch needle, but it is not. Your emotional body does not know that, however. The healing happens as the splinter is removed and the painful perception is replaced with a more loving one. I have found that the first step to healing is awareness. We don’t call the doctor unless we acknowledge our knee pain. We don’t reach out for help unless the pain has gotten to be too much to handle. So there is a gift in that. That awareness leads to acceptance and a shift within. The wisdom we gain through it all is the icing on the cake of self-love that we will now have more energy to decorate. What really stands between your desired next step and where you are now? Are you ready to trade that in so that you can easily find your authentic path to joy again? It is possible. You just have to say yes. You deserve to shine your own light on the world. Reach out for help. Free your soul. You don’t have to do it alone. Banu Sekendur, MA is an intuitive coach and a healer. After a neardeath break-up in 2013, she was launched into her role as a coach.

A Peaceful Soul

By Rich Ralston In a world of chaos and confusion, most people have gathered a web of experiences that influence their emotional state of being. Our perspective about our purpose in life can become frustrated and confused. Our outer surroundings often prevent us from finding a place or time to get relief from life’s challenges, while our inner selves can distract us with a turmoil of thoughts and emotions. Meditation is the tool that I use to find inner peace. Meditation allows me to release the inner turmoil of thoughts and emotions. The key is finding the time and place that allows you to focus your mind on releasing disturbing thoughts. Thoughts create emotions, and emotions create emotional behavior. The first step is to identify the thoughts that are creating disturbing emotions. The next step is to understand that the energy that is holding our thought patterns can be released and replaced with new thoughts. The new thoughts will create new beneficial emotions. Our souls understand our life purpose. When we eliminate disturbing emotions, we allow our mind to be illuminated by our soul. This often can be a stepping stone that leads to inner peace. I have found that inner peace begins with communicating with our soul. The soul is the center of our consciousness that holds the memory of our past lives and serves as an advisor to help us fulfill our life’s purpose. In my book, I share techniques I use that are designed to identify unwanted thoughts and emotions that are troubling our souls. These thoughts can be released and replaced with beneficial ones, allowing our souls to experience inner peace. Rich Ralston is a clairvoyant energy worker and healer. His abilities include chakra clearing and energy release instruction, past life karma clearing, communication with souls of the dead as well as crossing them over, and remote healing.

Practicing Peace

By Bre Wolfe Inner peace is always inside us. We all can connect with that peace in a single breath. We become what we think about. My teachers taught me mantras such as, “I am loving awareness” and “I see the best in everyone all the time” (one of my favorites). The more I repeat these loving words, the easier it is to feel and to be them. When I bring deep concentration to my mantras, the energy in these words permeate my being and my experience even more powerfully. I dedicate the last five minutes of meditation to mantras. I practice until I physically feel what I am affirming deep in my body. Then when I’m off my cushion, going through my day, I more easily access and feel these truths because I practiced them in silence. For example, I used to be self-conscious walking the beach in my bathing suit and I used to feel shy with people I didn’t know. Now, I’m so busy being loving awareness that all I notice on the beach is the beautiful experience of what the seaside offers. I notice details — how the sand feels like brown sugar in my toes, and how cool and refreshing the breeze feels on my body. And when I meet new people now, I’m so focused on seeing the best in them that my insecurities go unnoticed. That’s because no matter what I am doing, in the background I am still saying, “I am loving awareness” or “I see the best in everyone.” I can physically see how beautiful we all are and I literally see the world through eyes of loving awareness. In gratitude to my teachers, this practice keeps me in peace. Bre is a 500-hour Yoga Alliance yoga teacher and certified professional integrative life coach. She teaches the sacred use of plant medicine for healing and deep loving connection. For more information, call 808.344.4788 or visit

Exploring Ayurvedic Wellness

“Awesome feeling! If you’re ever on Maui this is a must do.” - Adrian Kukua

By Susan Wilesmith Ayurveda (science of life) is an ancient form of natural healing which comes from India. One form of ayurvedic healing is panchakarma – pancha means “five” and karma refers to action. The five actions, or treatments, eliminate toxins from the seven layers of tissues of the body. What does panchakarma do? It loosens the toxins that are glued to our cells; these toxins stop us from digesting and absorbing nutrients to certain parts of the body. Once the nadi points, or channels, are clear of toxins, the body’s senses, systems and digestion work at a higher function. Specific treatments and preparations of ayurvedic oils, herbal formulations and teas, are administered; these release toxins through the malas (sweat, urine and feces). In an ayurvedic consultation, you can expect to discuss your health and habits. A week-long panchakarma preparation is undertaken before your treatments begin. A panchakarma cleanse is performed every day for 2 hours, for a minimum of 5 days and up to 30 days, depending on the imbalances. As a panchakarma practitioner, I have supported many clients in their detoxification process. I have seen only benefits with every person. The skin becomes more radiant and glowing; wrinkles diminish. Clients often experience reduction in anxiety, fears, blood sugars, blood pressure, thyroid, hormonal issues, weight and stress. I also see stabilization of the nervous system and digestion system, and the lymphatic system kicks back into gear. After 16 years of research and treating clients, I can say that everything starts from the senses. We have experiences every day. Our gut is the first feeling responder, as there are more neurons in the gut than in the chest center or brain. First we feel (or we shut down our feelings out of avoidance). Then we think (ego), and we determine whether the experience we are having is good or bad. If emotions are stored in the body, we will experience inflammation as the first sign of accumulation and aggravation of stored toxins. Toxins are undigested matter. Stress creates an increase in cortisol levels, which takes 6 hours to process. If there is ongoing stress or disharmony in our environment, relationships, living situation or finances, then our bodies go into crisis mode. AlohaVeda Spa, an ayurvedic wellness center that focuses on Ayurveda and panchakarma detox treatments, creates a safe and supportive environment to receive treatments in Hawaii. Safety relaxes the body instantly; the parasympathetic response relaxes the nerves. This creates gateways to eliminate and let go, and gives strength and support to all systems with an ability to take charge. Decisions are actioned with an increase in clarity and joy; gratitude and appreciation are felt on all levels. Susan Wilesmith, of AlohaVeda Spa, has over 15 years experience in panchakarma and Ayurveda. AlohaVeda Spa, located at 42 Baldwin Ave., Paia, offers panchakarma, massage (treatments and training), and live-in retreats in Makawao. Ayurvedic healing workshops in July and September will feature visiting teachers. Please contact:,, 808.634.0346.

Ask The Death Professor By Reverend Bodhi Be “What are the current options for the handling of my body after death here in Hawaii?” ~ Laura Lee Currently on Maui, these are the options: home funeral; other funerals; commercial burial; green burial; home burial; ocean body burial; cremation; body donation; and organ donation. A home funeral is when the body is present in the home after death. Family and community gather in prayer, laugh, cry, talk about the person, etc. It can include bathing, anointing and dressing the body, overnight vigil, and ritual specific to the family. Other options for funerals are in funeral homes, churches and backyards. A funeral is when the body is present. A memorial is when the body is not present, and ashes can be present or not. In Hawaii, a body needs to be cremated, buried or refrigerated (in a certified fridge) within 30 hours after death. Families have sometimes exercised their religious right to allow a dead body to lay in state for longer than 30 hours. Commercial burial is when a body is buried in a cemetery. Commercial burials often include plastic or concrete grave liners; the box and lid encapsulate the casket. Commercial cemeteries contain millions of tons of steel and metals, millions of acres of forest, billions of tons of concrete, and hundreds of thousands of gallons of toxic embalming fluid. Green burial can include being buried in a cloth shroud, or a cardboard or wooden casket. It would not include any concrete, tropical hardwoods, metals (except maybe some nails), or embalming fluid. Home burial, legal and permit-able in much of Hawaii, is when you have or establish a family burial ground on your land. One can then bury any family members in that family burial ground. Permits, death certificates, etc. are required, as in all of these methods. There are speed bumps in place with State and County restrictions, such as distance from neighbor, land classification, distance from water, etc. Ocean body burial takes place according to Federal and State regulations for depth, distance from shore, and other guidelines. A body is wrapped in a canvas shroud. Included in the shroud are added weights to ensure the body sinks. Cremation occurs when a body is cooked at a high temperature, often around 1600℉. The ashes are bone fragments. Body donation is when someone registers with the University of Hawaii School of Medicine’s body donation program. Upon death, within a certain amount of time, the body is placed in a casket (one suitable for plane travel for off-islanders) and transported to the Medical School on Oahu. At a later date, the body will be cremated and the ashes can be returned to the family. Organ donation is when someone has registered as an organ donor and has it checked on one’s driver’s license. An organ donor’s organs must be ‘harvested’ within hours. On Maui, Doorway Into Light (our non-profit, certified green funeral home) facilitates home funerals, direct green burials from one’s home to the graveyard, green burials in cemeteries, ocean body burials, and body donations. We guide ash spreading ceremonies, funerals, memorials and vigils, and we support families in choosing a home funeral. Conservation burial grounds take green burial further, and is a growing model in the U.S. A green burial ground creates conservation land and maintains and protects open space. Doorway Into Light is seeking funds for land to take this model further, integrating land protection, open space, burial, regenerative agriculture, picnic areas, walking trails and dog park – a place for the living and the dead. Reverend Bodhi Be is an ordained minister (Sufi lineage), executive director of Doorway Into Light, president of The Death Store, and host of the radio show Death Tracks. He is also a funeral director, coffin maker, end-oflife and bereavement counselor, teacher, speaker and ceremonial guide. Visit or call 808.283.5950.

The “exact” soul of Jesus is now in his new reincarnated body. “The soul’s history is written in the stars, and the heavens are her chronicles and tell the story at once of her and of God...” The Message of the Stars - Max and Augusta Heindel 1927 “After all it is written in the stars...” John Lennon 1979 “And God said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons and for days and for years.” Genesis 1:14. “Signs”means literally “signs” and “signs” also means “signs” of the zodiac/mazzaroth. “Seasons” means precessional epochs, ages and dispensations of approximately 2,000 years each. “O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who has set thy glory above the heavens.” Psalms 8:1 “Seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion.” Amos 5:8 “Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night. The Lord of Hosts is His name.” Jeremiah 31:35 Seek God above all. “He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them by their names.” Psalms 147:4 “Canst Thou bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades or loose the bands of Orion? Canst Thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? Or canst Thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the ordinances of the heavens. Canst Thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” Job 38:31-33. When God challenged Job to answer these questions, God was challenging humankind to answer the questions of how the heavens go. Mazzaroth is the Hebrew word for zodiac. God was challenging Job/humankind to “bring forth,” that is, understand our “energetic signature” of our horoscope/”planetary configuration” of the zodiac and put to effect its plan for us on earth, that is; “Set the dominion thereof in the earth.” The three stars in Orion’s belt line up with the three pyramids on the Giza plateau in Egypt. God was telling Job to let go of his grip on the material world. “Loose the bands of Orion” The Jews were in bondage and slavery in Egypt. The Pleiades in Job’s time was in the constellation of Taurus the sign of the earth or material world. God is telling humanity to let go of its focus on materialism and rather set its focus on the spiritual way, the bright light of “Arcturus.” There is an ancient Jewish saying that it is every Jew’s obligation to “Repair the World.” This is referred to as Tikkun Olam. The literal translation is “world repair” which is the spiritual purpose of life. It also means “perfecting the world” and the “social action in the pursuit of social justice.” It is every human being’s obligation to “repair the world.” When we strive to do this “repair” we enter into the Messiah or love vibration which is available to each and every human being. This is achieved merely by loving everyone and everything unconditionally. The only way to “repair the world” is for humanity to be united and not divided. Koran Surah XLII 13. “...Be not divided therein...” Messiah=Christ which is Love which is King.

Hints To Raise Your Vibration For Peace By Matteo Musso Much can be said on the topic of inner peace, but I’ll describe the basics from my perspective. When our vibration matches that of our surroundings, we have inner peace. So that’s the goal. It sounds simple, but it’s not easy. There is so much going on around us at all times, both seen and unseen, and these things affect people’s vibrations. As a person who is autistic, I wish everyone would get in balance because we are beings who are so sensitive to the imbalances. We vibrate at such a high level of desired love – in contrast to our ego-driven, power-hungry and wealth-seeking society and world – that we do not have inner peace very much unless those close to us ‘get it.’ You may say, “Hey, but I don’t know or hang out with any autists, so I’m off the hook!” But alas my dear reader, you are not. As each individual finds inner peace, the vibration of the planet will increase and this will attract more and more people seeking this inner peace. Then love will reign again. How do you find it for yourself? Well, you take an awareness inventory – an emotional survey of sorts. Any time you’re unhappy, frustrated, sad, tired or lethargic, notice your internal

and external environments. What, specifically, is slowing your vibration? It could be any number of things – the people you’re interacting with, conversations that dwell on negativity, something that ignites fear in you, or an event going on around you. Know that you can change your vibration by removing yourself from the thing or the environment that is causing you discomfort or pulling you further away from enjoying inner peace. Deep breaths, visualizations, yoga, meditations and uplifting activities, can all help to raise your vibration. Do you know how much

the collective vibration rises with volunteerism? It’s huge and gives so much peace to both the volunteers and the recipients of the work. So, go out and grab it! Inner peace is there for the taking! Matteo is a joyous 15-year-old author, inspirational speaker, and mostly non-verbal autistic young man who recently found his voice by spelling his thoughts one letter at a time on a stenciled letter board. His inspired thoughts and wisdom are now being shared with the world. Visit; search ‘Mondays with Matteo’ on YouTube.

Finding Freedom From Pressure By Dr. Ayin Adams Part of spiritual growth is the experience of joy, which we certainly sacrifice if we grimly press on under the pressures to be perfect. Do your best and leave the rest. The latter is an important key – leave the rest, let it go. Do what you can, and then let it go and relax. This can free you from all kinds of pressure. When you know that you are plugged into a Divine rhythm, you can do things without pressure. One of the subtle problems with having clearly set goals and well-defined master plans, is that these can produce great pressure; one must be careful. Certainly, have a plan; but keep it in the back of your mind. Don’t worry about it and don’t let it become an obsession. This moment is all you have to work with. The past is behind you, and the future is yet to come. A goal should not be a preoccupation for tomorrow, but a direction for the day. If you want to protect yourself from the sense of pressure that comes from anxiety or the fear of failure, be sure to keep yourself ‘now-minded’ – that is, stay in the now. May the light dawn in your consciousness.

Dr. Ayin Adams teaches Science of Mind principles at the Holistically Alive Center in Wailea. Call 808.276.6864 to get in touch and find out about fall classes.
