JANET ATTWOOD: You said something really interesting. You said there are things that can't be treated, but nothing can't be healed. STEPHEN LEWIS: Absolutely, there's nothing that can't be healed. You can read about it anywhere. It's always been the case. You read about it in tabloids, you can read about it in the New England Journal of Medicine. They publish articles about a totally inexplicable spontaneous remission, and this and that. It's called healing. It happens all the time. I knew there must be a technology to it. I didn't know that it was a fusion, it was a spiritual technology. Michael is the one who opened my eyes to that, the thing that I thought was science and wondered about it. That's why ...

Dr. Andrew Newberg "Belief: The Essence of Our Being" By: Chris Attwood

2007-12-06

ANDREW NEWBERG: What I was so fascinated by was that, for example, when we did a scan of a nun in prayer, when we talked to the nun about the results and we showed her the changes in the brain, and so forth, she said, "Wow, this is really great. This helps me to understand how God has an influence in my life, how religion is so important, and how my spiritual side is connected with my biological side. This is great." She thanked me, and it was so wonderful that this helped to support and validate her way of believing about the world. I was equally intrigued by the fact that a number of people who were not religious, people who would describe themselves as atheists, would look at the same scans, the same data, and so forth, and they would come to me and they would say...(article continues at: …

Success and Failure of Holiday Office Parties By: Ruth Haag

2007-12-06

Holiday office parties are a tradition for most companies. Along with celebrating the holidays, they can provide a relaxed atmosphere in which employees can find out more about one another, and their families. However, if parties are poorly managed, they can create irritation and strife. The Best Party The first staff that I supervised was made up of college students. None of us were making much money, and no one could afford a fancy holiday party. We decided that a pot-luck might work. We found a large room in our own building, and had a sign-up sheet so that we wouldn't get too many baked-bean casseroles. On the assigned day we met. Everyone was allowed to bring along their Significant Other. It was a wonderful party. The food was fun. The party was a success and the staff worked better together afterwards. The Worst Party...(article continues at: …

Work is Necessary; Struggle is Optional By: C.J. Hayden

I hear from many entrepreneurs that marketing is a struggle. They just can't get enough clients to pay the bills, or they are spending more money to get each client than the sale is worth.

The Advantages of Living Out Loud By: Keith Varnum

2007-11-29

Every time someone asks us a question, we have a choice to make, "How much truth shall I express?" "How much of my True Self should I reveal?" Among our choices are the "convenient" truth, the "diplomatic" truth, the "socially accepted" truth, or the "absolute" truth that is, "the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God!" Do any of us even know the absolute truth about any situation in our lives? And can we ourselves handle the whole truth all at once about any subject? Let alone share that depth with others? I make a practical choice. I state to myself this daily intention...(article continues at: …

Holidays with Ease: A One-Pot Turkey Dinner with All the Trimmings By: Elizabeth Yarnell

2007-11-23

A holiday meal is typically an occasion for breaking bread and sharing the hearth with our family, friends and community. While not everyone wants to cook for an army during the holidays, there is still something about having a traditional holiday meal that evokes a feeling of celebration and custom. It's not only the combination of foods particular to that holiday ritual that feeds the senses, but also the likelihood that the event offered an opportunity to share the workload increases the bonds of kinship and friendship. For those passing a holiday alone or with one other rather than a crowd, there can be a sense of deprivation with the loss of the opportunity to partake in the traditional feast of the season of turkey, cranberries and sweet potatoes. Here is a great solution to getting the meal with all the trimmings without spending hours and hours in the kitchen or facing a week of leftovers...(article continues at: …

Aging Well: Building a Legacy for the Future By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

2007-11-23

Have you ever thought that giving your life to what you do best might help you feel the weight of the years much less? It sounds implausible, but if you think about it, we are all special. All of us have something to pass on to others, so that the best of us lives on. Even if we don't think we have them, all of us can discover and utilize our unique talents, skills, aptitudes, and character--whether we are 35 or 65-- to make a life-enriching difference. Even if we are not Mother Teresa or Albert Einstein, we may well be an extraordinary partner, parent, grandparent, or friend, without really knowing it. Or we may be that artist or teacher who can ignite the spark of enthusiasm and adventure in those who will be here after we are gone. Shakespeare lays down the challenge as he says, Look in the mirror and tell the face thou viewest Now is the time that face should form another.

Jeffrey Smith "Truth Triumphs" By: Chris Attwood

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi once said, "There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal, no door that enough love will not open, no gulf that enough love will not bridge, no walls that enough love will not throw down, no sin that enough love will not redeem. It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how great the mistake, sufficient realization of love will solve it all. If you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world." At times, love for life and for humanity requires pointing out directions that do not support us in creating a better, healthier, more fulfilled world. Jeffery Smith has had the courage to do the research and bring to light the dangers posed by large corporations that put profits ahead of our collective health.

Referrals are Predictable! By: Ivan Misner

When you have a fully functioning referral-marketing strategy in operation, you will know approximately how many referrals you can expect, and of what quality they will likely be, over a given period. True, you won't know very far in advance exactly whom you're going to be selling to or how much the order will be, but that's true of almost all marketing techniques. So if you look at each individual sale, it may be hard to understand exactly how that sales opportunity came to you.

I enlisted in the Army and I was lucky enough, of all things, to be assigned to the Counter Intelligence Corps, which sounds very 'cloak and dagger' and was. It was every bit what you'd imagine James Bond's life to be like as a counterspy, but I was in it for less than two years, although I was assigned to a section called 'Derogatory,' which meant that I only participated in cases about people upon whom derogatory information had been turned up.

The bounce, optimism, inability to understand negatives, all of that and more are their gifts to us.

They go through the list and immediately jump for the one which to them has neon lights around it and is the absolute must-have. That is how we should live our lives.

Setting SMART Fitness Goals By: Lynn Bode, CFT

Setting SMART Fitness Goals One of the simplest steps you can take when you embark on improving your health and wellness is setting your goals. Right? Actually, creating goals should not be taken lightly. To improve your success rate with achieving your objectives, you need to create a specific roadmap. You need to set up SMART goals. They need to be: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Oriented. You need to state specifically what you want to accomplish. The goal should be very easy to measure. There should be no question at all whether or not it has been reached. It should be something you can truly obtain, not just an unrealistic dream. It should be relevant to your needs. You should include a deadline. So, the clichés of simply wanting to "drop some pounds", "fit back into your jeans" or "get bigger biceps", don't fit into the SMART model. Reworking these vague goals, though, will help you get and stay on the road to better fitness. The first example is losing some weight. Here is the reworked SMART goal:...(article continues at: …

THE 5 STAGES OF A "SIZZLING" SALESMAN By: Janet Attwood

When each of us had the privilege of becoming a sales professional, we all had our own unique experience. There was one common denominator however that we all shared. We all had to go through the following 5 stages. As you read through them see what stage you are in, ask others what stage they think you are in, and become aware if you are stuck in a stage that you don't want to be in any longer. I think awareness is the key to personal and business growth. When I discovered that I was... (article continues at:…

Slowly Is Holy By: Scott Kalechstein

2007-08-30

We're seeing a lot of interest these days in slowing down the aging process. We take Human Growth Hormones and state of the art vitamins. We take power walks and veggie juices. But how many of us take our time? There's a new time-release super-food-for-thought supplement that I've been chewing on lately: "The more I take my time, the more time I have to take." This may boggle the mind for a moment, but a quick review of Einstein and physics will help it make sense. Time is relative, and how fast or slow I experience its passing depends entirely on my state of mind. The presence of peace is found in the absence of rushing, and my peace of mind clearly depends on my slowing myself down. Do I want peace of mind? Is it a priority? Well, yes, it is...but first...(article continues at…

10 Ways to Get Your Marketing Unstuck By: C.J. Hayden

2007-08-16

Have you ever found yourself knowing exactly what you need to do about marketing your business... and then not doing it? You are not alone. Many self-employed professionals find that the hardest part of marketing isn't figuring out what to do. What's hard is actually doing it. Marketing yourself can be a confronting process. Making phone calls to strangers, writing marketing letters, and talking about yourself and your accomplishments can bring up fear of rejection, harsh commentary from your inner critic, feelings of incompetence, and the discomfort of performing unfamiliar activities. If you let them, these inner saboteurs can stop you dead in your tracks. The good news is that you don't have to completely eliminate these internal roadblocks in order to move forward in marketing. It is possible to feel afraid or uncomfortable and still take useful action despite the presence of these feelings. Here are ten ways to quickly break through internal barriers and get your marketing unstuck...(article continues at…

Aging Well - Four Ways that Nature can Turn Back the Clock By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

2007-08-16

Aging can be a frightening experience for us all. This came home in a message I got recently from a reader, who says frankly: "No matter how many miracle products I buy, I feel my body is betraying me. It makes me want to give up. Just as I am beginning to figure things out, I feel it is so unfair that life is slipping away from me." These words touched me deeply, for I too, see what formerly were lines on my face now turning into creases. But there is a miracle that does not come in any package which is all around us, ready to give us ample nourishment far greater than that which is slipping away. Whether we choose to work with it or relax amidst it, nature is infinitely larger than ourselves and never grows old. Here are four ways we can draw sustenance from nature that will help us feel a freedom from our body's relentless clock... (article continues at:…

Block Rocks! By: John Carpenter Dealey

2007-08-16

Eric Butterworth wrote a book called "In the Flow of Life". In it, he said 'As the removal of earth by a farmer digging a ditch, opens up a channel for water to flow to his crops, so does the removal of obstacles by the student, open up a channel of energy to flow into his being.' This quote got me thinking. Here in Texas, we call something that interrupts the natural flow of things a Block Rock. A 'Block Rock' can be something that causes disruptions anywhere in your life - in your physical world, your emotional arena or even in your spiritual realm. Recently, I was watching the 1993 classic movie, 'Tombstone' about part of marshal Wyatt Earp's life. Many people consider this to be one of the five best westerns ever made.

Is Coffee Really a Health Risk? By: Dr Christiane Northup

I don't know about you, but I love coffee. And I'm a big fan of Starbuck's when I'm traveling. It's a great place to meet, chat, and enjoy a good beverage. Coffee and I go way back. I started to drink it back in college in the 1970's. At the time, my dorm room brew was made from freeze-dried Maxwell House. That's what was available. And besides, it was cheap. When I was home, I liked to visit my grandmother who always made pots of fresh-perked coffee for me and my boyfriend. I continued to drink coffee throughout medical school. And while doing my ob/gyn residency, which often involved staying up all night, I lived on coffee--sometimes as much as six cups a day. I stopped drinking coffee when I decided to get pregnant. And interestingly, once I actually was pregnant, I, like so many women, couldn't stand the smell of it or the taste. I resumed drinking coffee after my children were born, however.

Why Exercise is Important After Baby By: Tracey Mallett

Post-natal exercise offers a whole range of benefits for new moms. However, it's important to remember that you should always consult with your doctor before starting up an exercise program. What kind of delivery you had will determine how quick you can resume back to your exercise plan. It's generally advised that you wait until your 6 week post-natal check up. Caution is required before jumping back into an exercise program, especially with your abdominals. During pregnancy, your abdominals will separate from the added pressure of the baby. This is called diastasis recti. It's important that you minimize the separation, allowing the abs to function properly, and also before...(article continues at:…

Suppress or Express? By: Dr. Ted Morter, III

2007-07-11

"Big boys/girls don't cry." "Don't hit." "Don't shout." "Don't be angry." Our society has long advocated emotional "control." From childhood, we are bombarded with instructions to sanction outward responses to emotions. What's a body to do with all of these robust emotions bottled up all the time? Explode? More or less. Actually, it's more like "implode" - "collapse" inward. If the energy of emotions can't be vented to the outside, it will be released on the inside. Eventually, the body "implodes" with some sort of release. It "implodes" in a headache, or back pain, or knee pain, or stomach pain, or some other kind of pain. Pain is an excess of energy in one place. It's congested. And that congested energy can come from suppressed...(article continues at:…

2006-11-22

Mother Teresa of Calcutta used to say that the world is hungry for our help and our love. Whether we seek to help people, animals, or the earth itself, the world's need for our service has never been greater. And the funny thing is, the more we help, the more energy we get. That's because when we make a difference in life, we forget about our own problems, which are really what make us feel old. Of course, it fills us with sadness when youth passes away and we face deeper, very difficult issues of life. This may, for example, mean coming to grips with spendthrift tendencies not reconcilable with our earning power; or even the onset of depression, due to...(article continues at:…

Your child's room is strewn with clothing as she searches desperately for something to wear that "looks decent." As the piles become heaps, still nothing looks good enough. She peers into the mirror and sees only that her physical appearance does not measure up to the standards she has set for herself. Her eyes see "fat" everywhere she looks, her belly, her thighs, her face, her hips. She turns to you and the dreaded question emerges. "Mom, am I fat?" You look at your daughter in wonderment.

Chicken Nuggets: The Not So Healthy White Meat By: Beth Greer

It finally happened, the thing I had been dreading since she started to have playdates away from my watchful eye. My nine-year-old daughter came home from a friend's house and sheepishly announced that she had eaten MacDonald's chicken McNuggets."Oh, really," I said, nonchalantly, attempting to hide my shock and disappointment.

High-Income Seller Behaviors By: Bill Caskey

2006-10-11

Read almost any book about sales and you'll see some reference to, "you need to have a good attitude." So what does that mean? Sometimes my most effective selling is when I have a "bad attitude" - when I'm more discerning and skeptical about whether a prospect has money or is willing to make the change. I get tougher then and force the prospect to fit into my procedure. So, for the purpose of this article, I'd like to redefine attitude and not talk about it in terms of good or bad, but instead... article continues at:…

It's time for kids to gear up for school. So what does that mean for your child's diet? Hopefully not a strict diet of fast food five days a week as you run to football practices and dance lessons. The start of the school year can indeed be a busy time for families, but it is possible to make healthy meals even with time constraints. It just takes a little know-how. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "The percentage of children who are overweight has more than doubled, and among adolescents the rates have more than tripled since 1980."

Diagnosed With a Herniated Disc? By: Dr. Robert Duvall

2006-09-27

What is a herniated disc? You've probably heard people say they have a "slipped" or "ruptured" disc in the back. Sometimes they complain that their back "went out". What they're most likely describing is a herniated disc. This condition is a common source of back and leg pain. Discs are soft cushions found between the vertebrae that make up the spinal column (your backbone). In the middle of the spinal column is the spinal canal, a hollow space that contains the spinal cord. The nerves that supply the arms, leg, and torso come from the spinal cord.

Nine Ways to Help Children to Cope With Loss and Grief By: Sally Sacks

2006-09-13

The biggest problem children have in coping with their grief is the inattention and lack of awareness adults have in the need to talk about it, express all kinds of feelings around it, and to help children to find a way to compensate for the loss. Often parents are ill equipped to deal with grief in their children, because they have a hard time dealing with it themselves. For example, many stoic type families just held it in, enforcing the need to be strong. If you grew up in a family like this, you would have no outlet to express your feelings. It would not be welcome and you would know it, so you hold your feelings in. These people become...(article continues at:…

2006-05-18

Every week countless numbers of people rededicate themselves to starting a new diet and exercise program, only to find that they have fallen off their program by the end of the following week. This scenario plays out all too often especially for people who are attempting to keep their fitness program based at home or the office. The problem here is not where the program is being attempted, but the fact that there actually is no program to follow. No matter what the endeavor, when one sets out to accomplish something without a well thought out plan or a 'roadmap', the chances for success are... …

How to Be Happy and at Peace when Your Whole Life is Turning Upside Down By: Dr. Janette Freeman

2006-05-18

It seems like we all go through it. You know- those times of change, when everything that we hung our hats of self-esteem on- are cast aside. Perhaps it's the loss of a job, spouse, friends, health, children, youth and beauty, or some less dramatic change that causes us to experience our share of fear and worry. I'm sure there is no one reading this message that hasn't experienced it more than once, and I would venture to guess it may even be going on now for many of you. After all, this is a time of...…

How to Handle Resentment By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

2006-04-14

Recently, a friend told me she saw Susan Saint James and her husband on the Oprah Show. Having lost their 14 year old son in a plane crash last year, Susan was asked how she got through the experience without bitter anger. She said, "I have found resentment to be futile. It is like taking poison and hoping the other guy dies." When I ponder those words, I look at my own teeming resentments—against friends, colleagues, and indeed against life—and wonder how I, who have not suffered her terrible loss, can...…

Change That Event and Be Free By: Dr. Stephen Ruppenthal

If you had your life to live over, what decisions from the past would you like to do over? Would you choose a different partner or family, or find a new way to handle things better with that childhood bully who picked on you? Psychologists tell us that we can often trace our least desirable patterns of behavior to telling events in the past, where we made up our minds as a child does, without wisdom or experience. Such snap decisions often set a mold for unfavorable behavior patterns like anger or insecurity, that still get activated today. But if we revisit such decisions and mentally redo them as we would choose to act now, we can free ourselves from such patterns and...…

It's getting to be so bad that by Monday afternoon, you're already tired of being at the office. You're not even thinking as far ahead as Friday.

The Ostrich Approach to Wealth-- Do you have your head in the sand? By: Jim Bunch

1969-12-31

Over the years, I have had the pleasure of working with a fascinating array of people. While I relish all of the variations of personalities and circumstances that flavor each coaching relationship, I've noticed patterns and personality types when it comes to wealth creation and management. One of the most obvious dynamics involves those who seemingly have it all and wear it well, but beneath the surface are tattered, torn and overwhelmed. We all know people like this. They see a large cash flow every month. Behind the façade, though, they are caught up in a vicious circle. That is, the more money the make, the less they know how to manage it...the more they hide from the growing responsibility that comes with prosperity. I call this the Ostrich Approach: stick your head in the sand and try to hide from the chaos! There's just one problem...(article continues at:…

Becoming a "Walking Meditation" By: Dr. Sue Morter

It is important to realize that meditation is not a practice that one uses to escape in order to hide from a disruptive life, nor is it a practice for relaxation alone. It is so much more and provides the opportunity to experience ourselves from an entirely different perspective. We are afforded a way of 'being with' the circumstances in our lives and 'being with' ourselves in a way that removes the stresses of seeing life from a dualistic viewpoint. Good or bad, should be or shouldn't be, right and wrong begin to disappear. Peace surfaces. When we meditate, we...(article continues at:…

How Do You Define Success? By: Bobbi DePorter

1969-12-31

Success means different things to different people. Part of it is conditioning - if our parents thought one way, we did. How often do we sit back, go inside and think, what is success to me? What do I strive for? How do I know when I've achieved it? So think about, how do you define success? What does success mean to you? Traditionally, success may mean achievement of an objective or goal. It could mean gaining fame or prosperity. Or it might simply mean the opposite of failure. There is a different way to define success. Success can be...(article continues at:…

When Nothing Seems to Work--Try the Opposite! By: Steve Hefferon

1969-12-31

From working with back pain sufferers my entire adult life, I've learned that when people are suffering, they will go to great lengths to find relief. Unfortunately, too many people are given very useful but incomplete information about what to do in order to get relief and regain control of their lives. I also know that people who are suffering can develop feelings of fear, anger, betrayal, and even hopelessness when their treatments don't deliver as promised. The trust they once had with their health care provider starts to diminish, and they don't know where to turn. Here is an e-mail I got from a young girl that illustrates my point:...
