Recipe for Change

I’ve been listening to channeled wisdom recently.  Whether or not you believe in it, the insight is clear.  Bashar (bashar.org) says that you start with a dissatisfaction of where you are, a hunger and thirst for something more even though you don’t know what it is.  On the other hand, if you are content, you… Read more »

Healing Powers of Smiling

“Put a smile on your face. A smile sends healing energy throughout your body.” And so the meditation tape from Spring Forest Qigong begins. The first few times it felt out of place for me. Smile on demand? It felt forced and fake. I always get annoyed when teachers tell me to smile. Don’t tell… Read more »

Letting Go of Remembering

A few weeks ago I went to a movie with… Read more »

Exercise Your Eyes

You might think that this is weird, but I am going to share it anyway.  Are you ready?  I do eye exercises.  That’s right.  Everyday before I get out of bed I exercise my eyes.  They were recommended by my doctor drawing on his Ayurvedic (ancient Indian medical) background.  They were also suggested by the… Read more »
