Feeling Stuck?

In preparation for a group BodyTalk session I am hosting tonight I sat down this morning and let an issue “arise”. An old AND current way of being and thinking seems to have my attention at the moment – it seems to be rooted in “Separation Consciousness”. When I reflected on it, I saw a “limiting” consciousness that is a pattern in my way of expressing and experiencing life and relationships. Yuck! The exciting gift is that I now see the pattern – I keep inviting in people and situations to help me become aware, to grow. With this new…

Energy Bars or Junk Food?

If you have cruised the grocery store aisle lately for something fast and convenient to eat, you have undoubtedly seen an increase in the number of nutrition/energy bars on the shelves.  The energy bar industry is a multimillion-dollar booming business.  You can find these bars at the grocery store, the pharmacy, the health food store, discount stores, your fitness center and even at the gasoline station.  We are moving in a fast paced world and all want a quick-pick-me-up snack so we can keep our energy levels up. The energy bar, once used exclusively…

The Mediterranean Diet is high in dietary fiber and high in antioxidants.  Key components of the Mediterranean diet emphasizes: Eating primarily plant-based foods, such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and nuts; Replacing butter with healthy fats such as extra virgin or virgin olive oil and canola oil (one tablespoon of olive or canola oil has 120 calories); Using herbs and spices instead of salt to flavor foods; Limiting red meat to no more than a…

The spring market runs through Sept. 24with a Fall & Holiday market running from October 01- December 17, 2011.  It…


The Voice: A Holographic Blueprint

Of the many different Sound Healing experiences I have had, one stands out as the most “clinical” or “technical”.  This is Anne Lindstrom’s work called SOUNDINGS PLUS ©. Anne’s work is based on the premise that your voice is a holographic blueprint of your whole body. She uses software to measure your voice, charting the areas of strength, weakness and toxicity. This is the most “clinical” part. She then takes you through the protocol to detox and return the needed notes to your voice – improving your whole body. SOUNDINGS PLUS has research identifying specific correlations: problems with communication and…

Tom Burch-True To Himself and Women’s Rights

Lots of controversy this week in Frankfort as four different anti-abortion bills were stymied by the House Health And Welfare Committee.  This shouldn’t surprise anyone who’s ever been to one of those committee hearings, since the long-time chairman, Tom Burch of Louisville, has always made it very clear that he is staunchly pro-choice. Three of the four proposals were sponsored by Republican David Floyd, who didn’t even bother to show up for the hearings. Dave is a pretty smart guy, and my guess is Floyd knew way ahead of time the measures had no chance. But, some observers suddenly contend…

Sarcasm Not Working Well for Denton in Frankfort

Julie Denton, Republican senator from Eastern Jefferson County, is increasingly at odds with her GOP Senate leadership. Late last year, she announced she would run against David Williams for Senate president but relented for lack of support. Last week, she publicized details of a Senate Republican Caucus meeting and called the lightning speed at which a bill was rocketing through the legislative process “a travesty of justice.” Senate Bill 110, which vastly expands the practice of optometry, has been front-page news because of its unprecedented momentum.  Mighty money and powerful sponsors — including Senate Republican leader Robert Stivers, are propelling it at a record pace. Increasingly, Denton’s fellow…
