All is energy. We are all energy. Dr Joe describes it beautifully.

One of the biggest misconceptions we’ve come to believe about ourselves is that we’re nothing more than physical beings living in a material reality – defined by our senses.

The belief that there are no realms or life beyond our physical world, or that we have no control over our destiny, is something we should continuously question with a healthy balance of curiosity and scrutiny.

We are intrinsically connected to a unifying field of energy and information that exists beyond our senses. By becoming aware of it, paying attention to it, and striving to connect with it, we experience not only its existence, but the fact that we are a part of it.

Through our research, we’re discovering when people shift their awareness from being separate from the field, and become skilled at the inward practice of meditation, there is a great level of coherence in the nervous system. That coherence can only be described as love, bliss, or ecstasy.

When the door opens and we connect to the unified field, its frequency carries such vital energy and information – it can change us from within.

Walk through the door and connect with this field of energy and information by practicing Dr Joe’s guided meditations:

Everything potentially touched during the session is santized: pens, door handles, faucets, lotion dispensers, cups etc. Fans, heater, and windows cracked to circulate the air.
Looking forward to seeing you!

Types of Meditation

At a turbulent and unprecedented time like this, meditation can be extra important to feel calm, clear, centered, and positive. Meditation takes practice, just like any other skill you try to improve. If you're not sure about what meditation is, or you have some specific questions, Deepak Chopra, a very enlightened human being, possess a lot of information on the subject.

A friend of a friend sent me this beautiful and so true message from Holy Father Pope Francis:

“Rivers do not drink their own water; trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Living for others is a rule of nature. We are all born to help each other. No matter how difficult it is…Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you.” Let us all remember then that every changing colour of a leaf is beautiful and every changing situation of life is meaningful, both need very clear vision. So do not grumble or complain, let us instead remember that Pain is a sign that we are alive, Problems are a sign that we are strong and Prayer is a sign we are not alone!! If we can acknowledge these truths and condition our hearts and minds, our lives will be more meaningful, different and worthwhile.

Have a blessed Monday!

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm in a room filled of love and compassion. What can be better than taking an SER class during Valentine's weekend? I'm sure you have bunch of ideas of what would be better: A box of chocolate probably sound a whole lot better than connecting with your green leg that feels sad, or a blue lung that feels intoxicated, or your orange finger that feels jammed, but, when those parts get the love they need, and trauma is release by loving hands and minds around you, it feels pretty darn magical!
And, as a nice surprise an old friend showed up in the class. Yay!

Do You Think the Pain is in Your Head?

Recently a few people have asked me:

“Do you think the pain is in my head? Am I making it up?
-The doctors didn’t find anything wrong, so, maybe I’m not in pain?”

I’d say, “If you feel pain, you’re in pain!”

When I start working on the soft tissue of someone who is in pain, I usually find extra tension in the painful area, (however, there are times when the opposite is felt). I may feel active trigger points in the area as well as in other parts of the body, which means the body shows us some physical evidence of pain.

To contemplate the above question further: “Am I making it up?”, one can argue that, if your pain receptors didn’t send signals to the brain, you wouldn’t feel any pain. The pain sensation happens in the brain. So, in a sense, we all make up our pain in the head, ……in the brain!

With Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), as well as with Craniosacral Therapy (CST), the sensation of pain can be addressed.

NMT addresses trigger points, an area in the muscles or fascia with a hightened tonus and heightened levels of toxins. Trigger points can develop due to poor posture, injury, poor diet, emotional trauma, and more.

CST is a very light touch therapy. It’s a therapeutic art that is based on a medical system with anatomical criteria. It addresses the nervous system, and the structural configuration of the brain.

First sunset of 2020. Exhale the old, breathe in the new!
Seems like many people felt they could do just that at the beach;
parking was as difficult as on a hot summer day.

Taking advantage of a Monday morning off- Sitting on the balcony in the cool air, freezing but enjoying it, birds chirping loudly, squirrels chasing each other in the big tree out front, kitties enticed, just one or two cars coming by. Taking in the refreshing cool air. Mind is at peace- and LA is beautiful. Namaste!

Lovely way to end the day!
Decompressing!
Hanging in the mufflers on the cadillac-
blood flow to the head, spine, and discs. Inversion and decompression is great for a neck like mine with lots of disc degeneration. Feels so good!!!
Combat degeneration, arthritis, and painful joints with Pilates and Neuromuscular Massage Therapy.
Tonight I also did Bikram Yoga, which I like to do every now and then; it's a great way to massage your organs and break up scar tissue, but I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. It's easy to injure yourself if you push yourself beyond your limits (which the teachers often ask you to do), and the heat is not good for everyone. Pilates and massage therapy on the other hand, I can recommend to everyone.
