Maui Initiation

After an obscure series of events, we found ourselves on the island of Maui, the vacation spot of the world. The destination for weddings, honeymoons, family vacations, and the hottest surfing and ocean sports. The place many would like to live…if they could.P1140654

The Island has a reputation for attracting people at transitional times in their lives or to put them face to face with their fears. This is a theme we have heard over and over again here. Even a local magazine printed an article mentioning this vortex of energy that pulls people in or spits them out. Some people leave the island after a short stay with their tail between their legs; others run out of money or fail to accomplish their “plans.”  Plans?  The Islands have their own “plans” for you.

We arrived following one of those such failed “plans.” What was supposed to be a year stay managing a B&B turned into a swift exit from the Big Island onto Maui.  Fortunately, we found a friend to stay with for a while. He spoke of the “vortex”, the power of Maui; that it will manifest whatever energy we put out, positive or negative. It’s as if there is an evolutionary force of thought manifestation here on the Island. It seems many want to see it and be in it, because the island is so over-run with tourists and transients, the challenge to find peace on Maui is growing more and more difficult.

The amount of people who come and go is so great, it may take months before local people even begin to take notice of you. We’ve heard local natives enlighten us to what they call the “rednecks,” white people coming to the island to sell real estate and abuse the land. Then there are the throngs of spiritual devotees wanting to invade your personal space with a overly emotional hug. attending “teacher training programs.” Those with monetary wealth, can  live in planned communities offering a safe and familiar experience, living as a perpetual tourist. But in the real Maui there are some very intense people, and some of the world’s best athletes.

For me, the magic of the experience is that I had to deal with my emotional breakdown and find the strength to let go of beliefs and expectations of what I thought should be and tap into my own intense strength. I had to practice the art of embracing “what is.”

Like many, I understand the concept of accepting circumstances in order to move through them, but here the challenge was in my face. “Circumstances don’t matter, only state of mind matters,” I remember this phrase through a Bashar channeling.  In my humble, calm state of mind, I journeyed through these few weeks to discover more depth to this paradise on earth.


My breakdown was initiated by expecting that at this point in life, my invention would have been far further along, bringing the fantastic income I envisioned. The great spirits had other plans for the progress into my dreams. Expectation can be a deadly emotional trap and my surrender brought forth new direction.

I found that Maui will welcome you and hold you closely in her arms, but there is no room for emotional baggage. With emotional baggage, you either have to distract and hide as long as you can, or come clean and find rest.


Here, the self is first. The self, with truth and serenity offers true relationship to others and the world around. I have seen the many who have not freed themselves. Frantic, frustrated people with an air of chaos, even eerie, creepy and fearful expressions surround them, trying to find their place on Maui.  Even when one feels clear and strong, keeping clear boundaries is a constant practice. For there are many here who still live in the confusion of what is and seek to bring others into it.


The Maui we thought was, no longer exists, and maybe this is the fate of the entire earth. The earth we once knew no longer exists. People have over-run the planet for the sake of commerce. My request is for the angels to come forth from the souls of who we are and realize the natural law of the universe, what is known as the Dharma.

Today,  synchronicities have been climbing and feelings of home are increasing. Soon  the perfect little home space will manifest, a place to support our comfort and where I can continue to share  gifts with the community and realize the warrior power  carried throughout my life.




Leaving Los Angeles

It has been quite an adventure traveling to exotic places for six months, then returning to L.A. to earn money to travel off again. As native Angelinos, we’ve experienced the prosperity and the despair of this intense place from childhood into our adult life. Today, however, the continued glamorization of Southern California and reality television has increased the masses of people moving in, and as it happens the native families become extinct. Even yoga in Los Angeles has become a product of acrobatic fitness challenges and commercial magazines. All that being said, I couldn’t imagine growing up any other place. The areas we lived in Malibu, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks brought us all the enjoyment of Zuma Beach, Santa Monica, Venice, Hermosa, Santa Barbara, the mountains, the cliffs, the music, movies and endless sunshine.

Venice-Beach Venice-Beach2

Even my career carried the spirit of Los Angeles with famous clientele, billionaire homes and parties, the flow of stimulation is endless. This megalopolis is massive and extends for nearly a hundred miles of Southern California’s coastline and stretches three hours inland. It is a collection of cities connected by the largest network of freeways in the world extending all the way to Ventura.


For us, however, it is the endless stimulation, the constant hum of the city, freeways and air traffic which can no longer soothe the dreams of our adventurer spirit. Upon our last move out of L.A., we claimed it as our last. Leaving is like withdrawal from a good drug, but on the other side, it is knowing how the ensuing experience would be something completely new and exciting. We will always be L.A. babies, but it was time to release the umbilical cord, and yet keep the etheric connection to the magic and friends which created our experience and carry it forward.

Collage of Ca Cropped

For most people, a choice to move would start with a job search and job security in the transition. As in the case of the adventurers like us, the first step is to define the location of our highest joy and allow great spirit and the guiding light of our heart to lead the way and create the lifestyle and income.

Since our travels began in 2011, we have lived and relocated ten times. We eliminated our belongings to just a few suitcases and traveled with things, such as gear, clothes, three pairs of shoes each, and musical instruments small enough to fit in our suitcases. The moving has become a perfected routine, and with each move comes absolute gratitude for spiritual guidance. We’ve learned to use particular essential life tools to keep us in harmony with our desires. Our current desire is to settle long term. With our world travel experiences, we thought of several places we would like to relocate. We created a new vision board and mind movie to highlight a clear vision of our next move.

We know how well our skills in health and yoga can blend with a vacation retreat center. We decided to step it up and focus our intention on prosperity to realize this idea. When we ask for change, change will happen. We do our best not to judge how things are changing no matter how unforeseen. The ensuing months threw us right into a free-fall of unexpected events to the next phase of our vision.

While care-taking a 3 acre organic edible garden property in Puerto Rico, we were gifted with a vision for a business. We left the paradise we were experiencing to develop this idea further. During the process, we were swindled out of our money and experienced an ugly side of humanity. When the idea hit a wall and ran out of money we then experienced the proverbial “kick-em while they’re down” behavior from people around us, people we thought were our friends.

It turns out the intensity of it all actually helped us narrow our vision and strengthen our bonds even further. Anger propels intensity and fierce decision. Though I cursed god, I held fast to the knowing that the greatest of achievers have been in this position. I began to search for the perfect opportunity, low and behold. A man who had a large plot of land and built a home by himself on the big island of Hawaii was seeking trustworthy people who could care-take his property and also help turn it into a money making business while he travels abroad for a year or more. The connection seemed perfect.

Though we never met, we felt enough of a pull to make it happen. The Angels seemed to support this move and by mid October, we made it to Hawaii.

A month later and we are leaving. The merging didn’t work out. Even though we were sure this was the place, it was only the catalyst.  Tired and a bit weary, this phrase from the classic poem “The Invitation” rings in my ear… “It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.”

So with friends within reach, we move on.

On a side note,  it’s funny how the the idea of developing a great business opportunity comes a bit of sadness, sadness for what the dealing of business has caused us. We were quite happy on that little island before we had the “big idea.”  This in turn, reminds me that I am not a yogi.  Real yogi’s have no attachments and thus no desires for business, or a new computer, Twitter or Instagram. So as a yoga teacher, all I can do is utilize the lessons of yoga to get through the attachments we define ourselves as. We do our best to detach.. Sometimes we do. Sometimes we don’t. As we all know, life is happening now, a place in time on the vertical choice of our vibrations.

I guess you could call me a wandering angel, or a lost Angelino. I practice and study the lessons of yoga, play music, enjoy my creativity, nature, my body, and friendship. So in the tradition of the modern California yoga dude, allow me to extend an invitation to follow us as we progress into the evolution of our experience.

Angels from the west coast.



No Regrets part II

No regrets PT 2


We use this powerful statement every day to create ourselves. It’s how you use it as your mantra I am… I am…. I am…

Douglas King: I am many things and consistently changing my I am. I am a holistic health practitioner, a yoga teacher a myofascial therapist, a reiki healer a musician and the inventor of the Rhythm Rack. I am what is known as a “life coach”

I get people to look at the essential elements of what it takes to experience life in our bodies with joy and livelihood, to take control of the experience and master the art of creation using the framework of their typical day. I take people through their day and show ways to shift their behavior to that which supports more of what they desire to experience.
The words of my guru as as clear as day when I repeat her words…yoga is not about standing on your head. It’s about standing on your own two feet. It’s difficult to be relaxed in the mind or calm in the heart or gentle in your speech or work with someone in a state of compassion when we have willingly let the body become full of ache and pain. This is why self-care is such a vital and important element in the final outcome of what we wish to accomplish.

If we are working on a project and the energy we put out comes from a sick mind or painful body. It doesn’t matter how efficient the proposal looks on paper or the presentation looks. The outcome is dramatically affected by the energy of the one’s creating it. The ripple in dark matter is constantly affecting us.

What we “put out” in known as our vibrational signature.

Not only does our energy signature effect those around us but it effects the outcome of our life and therefore leads us, to become elders wishing their lives turned out differently or elders whom are happy with their experience of life.

Sacrificing ourselves to love another

Sacrificing our self care for others in the name of love becomes detrimental to ourselves and those we love.
Sacrificing our time for health becomes a burden upon those we say we love by placing the troubles of caring for our sick bodies upon them. We don’t stretch so we can no longer move. We don’t exercise, so we can no longer stand. We don’t eat right, so we can no longer feed ourselves naturally. We don’t relax our mind, so we can no longer think clearly. This is the fate we put upon ourselves from the society we created. What good id sacrificing our health to nurture others only to put the burden of our decrepit body upon them.

Okay, what does it take to be a holistically, healthy person and treat our body and mind with the ultimate respect?

Guidelines for a healthy mind/body/life

Wake up when you’re done sleeping getting minimum of uninterrupted sleep between the hours of 12- 5 pm.
Drink a glass of warm or room temperature water with lemon upon waking
Begin a gentle exercise, stretching yoga practice
Refresh the mind with 15 minutes of meditation
Start your nutrition with easy digesting nutrients taking the time to thoroughly chew your food and or superfood smoothie 15-20 minutes.
Begin a few a tasks, which should include nurturing the earth where you live
Prepare for lunch with and appropriate balance of nutrients making it the highest protein meal of the day
Segment intend your vision of life with a 10 minute visualization
Continue afternoon tasks
Prepare for an early dinner so that the body is utilizing optimum digestion time
Utilize evening time to unwind the mind perform self care modalities and prepare for sleep.
Now let me ask. With all that is required to enjoy our body experience to the fullest, where is the time for a job.?

Well if we followed another simple rule for living, it would be easy.

Do what you love and allow money/abundance to develop around what you love.
wouldn’t this reduce a few regrets?


I went to visit my friend Hollywood Hal and met one of his old friends Gino. Gino was just as the name sounds, a big, deep talking, Italian from Chicago. During a brief conversation, he said it. “Never work for money.”

Unfortunately many of us were never taught these axioms of life and gave our power away at an early age and the resulting effects snowball in a never-ending array of chaotic experiences that we seem to be victim of. But in reality we were fed mantras and kept repeating them. TV is good for this, force feeding visual and auditory mantras.

Living a  healthy life comes from a completely different world of what many may believe can exist.

My love and I. We have no bills, no mortgage, no insurance, no children, no contracts. We travel the world and experience abundance in ways that far exceed what we could purchase with “money.” We keep ourselves fit and free. We use our natural gifts to empower our work as healers and find those who need us wherever we go. We give and we receive.

We trust in the never ending flow of love which in turn turns into experiences greater than we could have imagined. All because we not only believe the words of wisdom that have been passed on to our culture through the ages of time , but live in faith.

If you want to get a grasp of the final result of caring for yourself and others in the way I speak, think of how the tribes live in the movie Avatar. The book series conversations with God speak about highly evolved societies. A society where elders are effectively utilized by caring for the young and tending to the community gardens.

I believe we all want to work easier, with joy and experience the feeling of making a difference. So what can you do the shift yourself towards taking more control of your experience and your health and therefore changing the experience others have of you and the energy you project into the world?

What do people feel when they are around you? You can’t hide who you are from that inner deeper level of your energetic self. and every thought and action effects the matter around you. Some people have jobs that allow them only to  make the business run from a bottom line point of view and others work to make a difference. The best we can do is be honest and work within the framework of what we have created. Then we can choose whether or not we want to expand that framework to include more of what would help us live more of a live we could look back on…… with a smile.


What is your mantra?



The Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush

Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush

Today I share the process of healing my liver gallbladder using the method by Andreas Moritz.  We have completed ten liver flushes in 12 months.
After a long bout of pain in my abdomen, I was diagnosed with gallstones. It was a shock but also a relief to finally discover what the pain was about…or at least part of it. I was having many other issues that was unfamiliar with and unable to identify. I began to seek natural cures rather than scheduling the usual further tests or gallbladder removal surgery. I believe our bodies were meant to have the organs for a purpose and I also believe we can heal these organs when they are in distress. It is hard for me to believe how the average person will know that when they get a cut on their arm, the skin will regenerate and heal, but when something goes on internally they cannot see, they lose all faith in healing and run to alopathic medicine to treat, medicate and remove rather than support natural healing.

I am naturally aligned with my guides, I listen to my gut and follow my instincts. After a long talk with god and deciding what I wanted to create my life to be, I was led to the person who showed me the work of Andreas Moritz. After reading Andreas’ book, “The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush,” I knew I was about to embark on a new phase of health and healing for my life.
Buy the book here
Even though I had been vegetarian for 20 years and used herbs, teas, juicing and other healing elements, I had one issue that I had not dealt with. For decades, I used food for emotional comfort, I didn’t chew my food properly and I ate too much, too fast.

It doesn’t matter how good the food is we eat. If we eat too fast and do not properly begin digestion in the mouth, the system will eventually begin to malfunction, create stones, feed parasites and breakdown good gut flora. I created all of it. But even with proper chewing, just a lifetime of eating cooked food, alcohol and environmental poisons will naturally cause the same stones and other health issues.
The Most Common Causes of Gallstones
Bile is naturally composed of bile salts, cholesterol, bilirubin (bile pigment), water and a few other substances. When the chemical composition of bile is constantly disrupted, gallstone formation is an inevitable outcome. Here are the main culprits stemming from our day-to-day lives that change the chemical composition of bile and causes gallstones to form in the liver:
• Excessive alcohol consumption
• Excessive animal protein consumption
• Toxic, hydrogenated oils, plastic fats such as margarine, fake butter, etc. found in our food
• Highly heated processed foods
• Pesticides
• Medication and over-the-counter drugs
• Birth control
• Recreational drugs
• Overeating
• Smoking • Exposure to environmental toxins and heavy metals, namely fluoride and copper
• Yo-yo dieting
• Rapid weight loss
• Eating before the prior meal is digested
• Eating at night, when digestion is weakest
• Dehydration
• Lack of sleep
• Stress
In his book, “Timeless Secrets of Health and Rejuvenation,” Andreas Moritz claims that gallstones in the liver may be the main impediment to acquiring and maintaining good health, youthfulness, and vitality. He states, “Gallstones in the liver may, indeed, be one of the major reasons people become ill and have difficulty recuperating from illness.” This may come as a surprise to many of you since mainstream medicine has us believing that gallstones only form in the gallbladder, with no reference what so ever to gallstone formation in the liver. It may be more surprising in fact, when you learn that the majority of gallstones form in the liver and relatively few occur in the gallbladder.

It happened to me. My digestion stopped, my elimination stopped and I was suffering from a strange variety of nerve pain and stiffness. After studying the attributes of creating a healthy liver and gut in depth and completing eight flushes, I have successfully turned the entire process around. I believe in natural healing and I know I only had to give my body some support and the liver flush was the kick start to the entire process. If our liver begins to plug up, the entire system begins to break down. The good news is the liver regenerates very quickly! In an article found in the archives of the New York Times, a Harvard study stated “The liver has a greater capacity to regenerate after severe loss than any other organ in humans or mammals. In animal experiments, almost three-quarters of the liver can be removed and the organ will quickly grow back to normal size.”
That being said, once the liver begins to heal, everything else gets a radical kick-start to healing. But if you never flush out them stones, your liver may end up on Google Images as an example of how badly a liver/gallbladder can be congested with them.

In our eight month journey to healing and recovery, we added a lengthy study program to our health education. Besides studying proper liver cleansing and herbs, we read several books, listened to podcasts, lectures and practiced methods related to: herbs and foods that heal the gut – maintaining proper Ph levels in the body – formulas for proper stool formation – how to perform a variety of healing enemas – the effect of gluten on the gut and gluten related auto-immune disease – the need for healthy fats – dangers of low fat diets and more. I will share personal experiences related to these subjects in future blogs. Yes, we have become masters at enemas!
On the very first flush, we eliminated several hundred small stones. By the second and third flush, the stones were getting larger, and on the forth flush, I eliminated several hundred stones, many as large as one inch. The fifth flush, my stones were getting fewer, but Dung was still flushing hundreds of small and medium ones. By the sixth flush, I had only a small handful of stones. I did, however, flush out a large dead parasite and a dead critter that was unexplainable. It was an odd translucent body with a darker interior with arms all over the outside of it. Almost like some type of octopus. Immediately after flushing these two critters, my intestines felt better. Since then, I flushed only a few stones. My elimination is steadily getting back to normal and the pain has shifted from deep gallbladder and gut pain to what now feels like a faint, dull intestinal ache. During the eighth flush, my lovely Dung had the largest harvest ever, several stones equaling almost one inch! These are her stones below.

8th flush inspired by the Amazing Liver Gallbladder Flush/Andreas Moritz
We performed the flush both using the straight apple juice method and the malic acid method with supplements. In both cases, we had successful flushes. We chose to continue the malic acid method because we got tired of drinking so much apple juice.

Inspired by the book, “The Amazing Liver & Gallbladder Flush” by Andreas Moritz
We suggest you read the book before starting your first flush!
Here is a basic outline for the flush
Anyone pursuing this flush will have good intuition with their body. Cleansing organs of the body has been done for centuries. However, in the western culture, there is overuse of prescription drugs by many people, which tends to destabilize the body. Caution should be used by anyone uneducated in natural human function. If so, it is recommended that you be supervised for this flush by a qualified natural health care provider.
The information provided is information you can find by searching liver flush. It is not a substitute for professional care. If you have or suspect you may have a health problem, you should consult your gut instinct, research your symptoms and natural remedies on-line, and find support from a qualified natural health care provider.
7 days of access to healthy food and your liver/flush fluids you will be drinking throughout the day.
The 6th day of the flush you will need to be at home near a bathroom from 6pm on.
The 7th day you will need to be home the majority of the day, access to a toilet and rest.
32 oz. organic, raw, unrefined apple juice per/day, or, for those who do not want to drink the apple juice, use 6 teaspoons of Malic Acid: 1 tsp per day in 32 oz. of water, or, 4 oz. organic cranberry juice mixed with 4 oz. water, four times per day, or, another alternative is apple cider vinegar: mix 1 to 2 tablespoons in 8 oz. water, four times per day. (Malic acid is the ingredient in apples and cranberries that actually softens the gall stones and liver stones and makes it possible to pass them, they will exit through the rectum and this process is painless. Malic acid can be found on the internet via LD Carlson food grade malic acid 1 lb. = $4 – $7)
1 large jar with a lid (12 to 24 ounce will do)
4 tablespoons of Epsom salts, food grade
4 oz. of organic, cold pressed Olive Oil
6 oz. freshly squeezed organic pink grapefruit juice or lemon/orange juice
Since the flush is depleting, the following supplements are recommended and designed to support liver flush:
1 bottle of Premier Research Labs Gallbladder Nano
1 bottle of Premier Research Labs Gallbladder BilliVen
(These two products can be found on the internet or at Miller Medical & Wellness Center in Agoura, California: 818.706-9690)
The flush can be done without these supplements, however, be sure to get adequate nutrients with a variety of ORGANIC fresh vegetable juicing, especially green veggies, parsley and dandelion.
1 enema kit + knowledge of proper coffee enema administration
Here is a good video to help
So let’s get started!
You will begin this flush by avoiding high fat content foods for 6 days (animal foods, dairy, eggs, nuts, oils, coffee, alcohol, high sugar foods are all to be avoided). Avoiding these foods helps rest the liver. Steamed vegetables and rice, quinoa, salads and juices are a good option. Everyday you will wake up and make: 1 teaspoon of Malic Acid (or chosen alternative, see above) 2 teaspoons of Gallbladder Nano in 32 ounces of water. Gallbladder Nano is a nanonized form of b vitamins and herbs, they support liver function and biliary cleansing. This Nano is an extremely high quality supplement that will also replenish those nutrients that are depleted through the flush. YES, THIS FLUSH IS DEPLETING. Which is why we encourage added nutritional supplementation. You can add lemon juice, Stevia or Apple Juice for flavor. You will sip this concoction throughout your day in addition to whatever water you normally drink. The Malic Acid is sour and it’s also a type of acid that can make your teeth feel funny and also make your throat scratchy, it’s normal. You can rinse your mouth out with water if it helps. If using the supplements: You will also take 4 Gallbladder BilliVen Capsules 3 x a day. The Complex helps dilate the bile ducts of the gallbladder and liver as well as encourages healthy bile flow. These supplements will support your body as well as ensure a smooth successful flush.
For best results, administer 3 coffee enemas sometime during the first 5 days. The palmitic acid in the coffee encourages the dumping of toxins from the liver into the colon and prepares the body for the flush.
On the 6th day
Drink all 32 oz. of your Malic Acid cocktail before 1:30pm. Do not eat ANYTHING after 1:30pm drink only water. I personally fast the 6th day, which is not recommended if you tend to have low blood sugar, otherwise eat a light breakfast. Your malic acid concoction and water is a good start to the day. At 6pm drink 6 oz. of pure water with 1 tablespoon of dissolved Epsom salts quickly. I personally use a fresh slice of lime as a chaser. At 8pm drink your second serving of Epsom salt water. At 9:45pm squeeze your grapefruit or Lemon/ Orange into a jar (6 ounces of juice), pour your olive oil (4 ounces) into the juice, place the lid on it. You may have started to have bowel movements by now, if you have not, you can administer a pink salt or water enema to induce bowel movements although this is not mandatory. At 10pm stand by your bed and shake the juice/oil mixture and drink it quickly. Lie down immediately!! Perhaps with a warm castor oil pack on your liver area. Try and sleep, it’s fine to visit the bathroom throughout the night. Set your clock for 6am.
On the 7th day
At 6am wake up and have your 3rd delicious 6 oz. glass of Epsom salt water. A coffee enema is highly recommended at this point, lie down until 8am and have your fourth and final glass of Epsom salt water. One more coffee enema is recommended before you eat a light meal at 10:30am. I personally recommend vegetable juicing and/or pureed vegetable soups and probiotics through the day.
A successful flush happens when sticking to the instructions and having 3 coffee enemas the 7th day. It is highly recommended to have a colon hydrotherapy the 8th and or 9th day. Because this flush is depleting it is also recommended to finish the Gallbladder supplements and to re-mineralize the day of the flush with extra vegetable juicing, and lots of water. The flush is discouraged if you are feeling sick, if you are in a high stress time of your life and if you are having any pain or problems defecating. This flush is not only a physical release, we tend to store fear, anger and guilt in our liver/gallbladder, when you are extremely stressed and upset and you attempt a flush, your results can be hindered because of this. You CAN flush if you are menstruating.
What you might expect during your flush experience
Some people feel the stones actually leaving the gallbladder, which is under the right side of the rib cage. Some people feel a dull ache under their rib cage during and after a cleanse. Some people feel exhausted the next day, and some people feel more energy than they ever have in their lives.
Anyone choosing to do a liver/gallbladder flush does so at their own risk. Please understand that although the chance is one in many thousand, it has occurred where an abnormally large and calcified stone became trapped in a bile duct. This will cause extreme pain and possible surgery to remove the stone. If this happens to occur during a flush, many people take a couple extra tablespoons of Epsom salts to further dilate the bile ducts to move the stone through, and can also take more olive oil.
Herbs That Promote Liver Cleansing
1. Organic Chicory Root
Organic chicory root has a long history of assisting with liver problems, extending back to the ancient Romans and Egyptians who used this herb to help cleanse the blood. In more recent times, roasted Chicory root has served as a natural, caffeine-free coffee alternative.
2. Organic Dandelion Leaf
Dandelion Leaf helps promote bile excretion from the liver. As such, the body can more efficiently process foods and liquids while purging harmful toxins. In addition, improved bile flow makes it possible for the body to better metabolize fat, which helps optimize the body’s cholesterol levels.
Dandelion Leaf is also effective at stimulating a sluggish gallbladder, which is responsible for storing and excreting bile as the body needs it. As such, this natural substance is effective at promoting blood purity which helps reduce the burden placed on the liver to filter out toxins.
3. Organic Dandelion Root
You may consider dandelions as a weed, but the root has been used for many years to aid the body in purifying the blood and remedying liver problems. For people suffering from excess water in the liver due to health problems, dandelion root might help remove the water and improve overall liver function.
4. Organic Greater Celandine
Celandine is often used to assist with liver and gallbladder cleansing programs. Why? This valuable herb helps prevent the accumulation of foreign particles in the liver.
5. Organic Milk Thistle Seed
A number of studies suggest Milk Thistle Seed supports optimal liver function. For example, Milk Thistle Seed’s can promote the liver’s ability to regenerate new tissue after damage occurs. Milk Thistle Seed even shows promise in stimulating the liver to produce additional bile for improved digestive function.
6. Organic Peppermint Leaf
Organic Peppermint Leaf helps to improve the flow of bile from your liver to the gallbladder. The volatile oil found in Peppermint (a hybrid of watermint and spearmint) also aids with the overall digestive process. Peppermint helps keep your liver in proper working order.
7. Organic Turmeric
Offering strong antioxidant effects, Organic Turmeric helps remove toxins from the body. As a result of this antioxidant effect, your liver does not have to work as hard to filter blood and keep your body healthy. This creates a healthier liver by allowing it to focus on removing toxins from the body.
8. Organic Yellow Dock Root
Yellow Dock Root helps eliminate the foreign substances that can overburden the liver. Yellow Dock Root is also used to address headaches, mental “fuzziness”, general irritability, skin blemishes, and blood and skin disorders—all of these problems are related to the liver not being able to operate efficiently.
9. Wildcrafted Chanca Piedra
With the recent “discovery” of a very well known Amazon rainforest plant, Chanca Piedra, healthcare practitioners have acquired a powerful plant ally in helping their patients maintain optimal bladder, kidney, gallbladder, and liver health. Chanca Piedra is traditionally regarded as a health supplement that can promote the liver’s normal detoxification efforts for purging harmful substances.

Are You Really Healthy?

In the west and in other parts of the industrialized world, the masses have taken to cities where the lure of fancy goods and prestige become the priority in an ever shortening life span. The idea is to lessen the amount of time it takes to eat, sleep and exercise in order to work more. It is a glaring lacuna in the plan of happiness because when you look at the number one regret amongst the elderly, it’s wishing they didn’t work so much, wishing they spent more time enjoying the simplicity of life and taking care of their health.

But the hypnotic lure of glitter and flashing lights is too much for the average person to resist.  Then when the glitter and night life begins to lose its luster, the masses turn to producing offspring as a way to search for happiness and continue the illusion. It’s an age old symptom that has been addressed by masters for ages… the outward search for happiness.

In the midst of the illusion is our body. Our magnificent human form, waiting to give us the ultimate experience of joy. But instead many humans ignore the magic within and continue to look outward as if we have to somehow attach ourselves to something in order for the magic to ignite. Our bodies go along with the foolishness, working and fighting to keep us alive until the battle is too much for the slowly dwindling strength of our immune system. The onslaught of nutrient deficient foods, chemicals and sugar in the the outward search for pleasure and happiness shifts the focus of life to disease, and the realization that we can no longer search outward. However, there is still the opportunity to lay blame on outside circumstances and label ourselves as being a victim of disease. People can find authorities in medicine, to partner with them to continue ignoring the idea of personal responsibility for health. They can go on with treatments and drugs until the label has been attached and the outcome is assured.

The health of our life is a deep and harmonious responsibility. Many people believe that by exercising regularly, going to the gym and taking their vitamins, they are doing all they can for their health and any event of disease is therefore an uncontrollable misfortune.

Internal happiness is the key to health. I know everyone has heard this age old phrase of wisdom, happiness begins within.  The true source of our health comes from our energy field. Our energy field is created through the conscious and unconscious mind. The path of happiness and abundant health therefore lies in our ability to find happiness within. If one cannot be alone with themselves, sit in quiet without distraction and find comfort, they have not created the proper internal, healing strength. If being alone is uncomfortable and the need for constant distraction is necessary, then the path of fulfillment towards a life of joy is slipping. If one cannot meditate and silence the mind, the outside forces have taken control.

Meditation. A simple solution to everything and the most painful and feared process for many. How can something as non-doing be productive to health? This is the biggest obstacle of thought to overcome. The game of the mind. Do, Do, Do, Think, Think, Think, is the illusion, the trap, the snare that puts one on the fast-track to ill health and disease. We cannot create our outer self, our physical self, from the outer world.  The outer self is created from the inner self.

Meditation allows one to be more in control over the processes of the body. It allows one to perceive the subtleties that our body speaks when it is time to make choices. It allows us to be in touch with the knowing that we truly create ourselves from thought.

Take the leap. You don’t need anything outside yourself. There is no need for a device or a class,  a wrist band or a head piece. Just learn to be still. It’s that simple. Then the strength of self begins to blossom, the power of creation and true wisdom of health.  If one does not develop this inner wisdom of health, it will only be a matter of time until…..


Stirred not Shaken

The turbulent world around us seems to be experiencing a division of ideas on what it is to be human. We definitely have two sides expressing their presence.  It’s a peculiar spectacle to watch at the least. The dark and the light, or is it knowledge and ignorance, synthetic or organic?

Some entities feel humans should not have freedom or knowledge and instead be led into a pre-determined lifestyle free from unique expression, because unique expression would lead to chaos. Then there are those who believe the unlimited free will of humans will express be expressed in harmony and joy and discover a new world of abundance for everyone with no “one” in control.

This expression of creative differences may be referred to as “opponents”, but not really.

There are humans who have been blindly led to a life of disease and confusion. They are lost and will fight to keep their position at all cost rather than face the idea of responsibility for their life and their own direction. These are the slaves of a system. They will not face humiliation or judgment from their peers to become free. They will fight for their system as long as it keeps them fed, numb and entertained. These slaves are controlled by the few. A few people wanting to control  food, water, energy, employment to the system, media and entertainment.

Then there are the awakening ones. These humans have literally, like waking from a bad dream,  shaken off any and all beliefs from the rubbish fed into society by the few who have wanted to control all.

The awakened ones are simply saying no to the system of limitation and offering their precious human energy in another direction. The awakened ones do not want to change the system and continue to ask for permission from the big boss. They are creating a new world out of their exponential growing intelligence and ideas of freedom and living on earth as natural human beings.They understand that Mother Earth can more than provide for everyone, water, energy, food, housing and their is no reason for fear or control.

When you look at it like this, you see the one side using fear and tyranny to manipulate and control more and more people into playing their game, and another group simply walking away to play a new game. But those still clinging to their control game of human limitation want to numb as many as possible to become slaves and help to cage those walking away. It’s not possible. When one has awakened to their ability to create and make choices based on their desires for joy, their is no one with a greater power over them. It’s at this great understanding when the law of attraction is realized and life becomes new again.

The awakening ones know that its our simple joy to live as an example and allow everyone to experience their current beliefs as they are, that lights the way much clearer.  They believe humans have unbounded energy and potential and when harnessed with conscious clarity and passion can create anything.  So they are creating a world free from control and experiencing a dawn of human joy and creativity like never before.

Awaken, for it is better and easier than you may think.

Begin to ignite into ideas of a life with no jobs, no money, abundant food, water, creative freedom, and harmony.

Start with gratitude for you next breath, and move with joy. Keep your heart forward and just say no.

Message for 11-11-11

Anyone who’s looked at the world around, knows that we are in a time of great change.   We have indulged a little too much in a path which creates disharmony among people, and within Earth herself.

We see clearly what has become and realize the ignorance which created it.  Now, as intelligent beings, we must put that wayward, ignorant mind in transformation. We have to powerfully yet lovingly bring healing to humanity.

 We shall put our minds together in unity, to focus on the creation and  development of the earth we desire.  For as we all know, it all starts in the mind. We have to see it first, for it to manifest before us.

Let us first support the gifts and goals of those who choose to bring forth the wisdom and technology of a new earth. Let’s support those who speak of love and creativity. Let’s look at what we put value to in our lives. Who and what do we support with the powerful energy of our dollar. Let’s open the door to allow through imagination and wisdom a chance to create a loving and fun place to experience life and happiness for our families.

Everything we need for joyful, healthy living is before us.  Those who speak with wisdom and of love are in the space of a much higher vibration and power than those based in fear. Feed only that which we desire and only that will grow.

 So in this time, when minds unite, focus with great power of intention on the support and love for all humanity. Focus on the earth you wish to live with healthy air water, free energy, food and warmth for every being on the planet. It is our natural and inherent right to be here and be fed. No man owns, controls or sells the earth. It is ours to nurture to love and to enjoy. Together we approach a new world.

This is where we are now

It is a wonderful time


Wandering Angels

Wandering Angels

Sometime, within the time span of our lives, we encounter beings who present themselves at the perfect time, offering the perfect solution, inspiration, support wisdom, etc, just when we need it.  Many times it is as unexpected as a falling star, a gem in the mire.

Some people find these encounters unbelievable coincidences, while others realize this as a signature of the spirits who lead them along the path of their highest joy.

These beings are angels, wandering angels I call them. Though some may not actually wander, and find home in a secure residence. They have qualities that are usually unexpected, qualities that show up at times of serendipity. These may be the mail person with unequaled knowledge of astronomy, or the construction worker who can quote every line in a Shakespeare classic.

Angels have certain qualities that are run deep and show up at perfect, opportunistic times.

Then there are the true wanderers, those who show up, perform miracles, then like the changing of seasons, find  their way to move like the wind. Wandering angels, have a spirit which is hard to tame.  Their beauty and skills are not meant to be held in one place for too long. We can see these beings as creative geniuses, even tortured souls. It’s as if they don’t belong here. Many times they have a hard time relating to the earthly mentality. Some of these beings have a good foundation for handling themselves on earth while others have a difficult time getting along and live a short life filled with addiction or strife.

These beautiful souls find their way into our hearts. We feel the depth of who they are, and desire to know them. They may even be our siblings, our parents, or friends, but there is just something, that seperates them from us.

Wandering angels have  a place to be, although, even they themselves do not know where that is.  Even those with a firmer grasp on earthly expectations can find themselves wondering why they have come forth, and fantasize about how they will leave. They see the absurdity of the mundane lives humans create and the captivity of society. They don’t usually fit in, or at best find a place within the healing arts just to keep themselves well.  Wandering angels can be millionaires or homeless, sometimes both.

There are even those who know they have gifts to share, but are afraid to let go to find their true selves. So instead they succumb to the insanity of attachments and peer pressure.  Many of us on this earth now are angels, which is why it is getting harder and harder to fit-in to the binding forces put on us by religion and government.

When a soul decides to be free, when we decide to give faith the power in our life,  that is when the angels appear as needed. It becomes a natural process and a guiding light for our creations. At this point of freedom, our creations then become much more unique to our expression of individuality within the space of oneness of humankind. We realize that harmony with earth and angels is possible and all the magic we need to live our dreams is at hand.

Angels are multiplying and gathering forces in mighty strength, but not to overcome an evil force, but to instead create a new vision, leaving old paradigms to fade away. Are you ready to join in?

In the mean time, when a wandering angel appears in your life, give them hope. Share your own light, support them however you can, and allow them to be free. They are the leaders.




Words of Wisdom from Dear Teachers

Namaste all.  I have put together some of my favorite quotes from the beautiful Douglas and also my great inspiration, Andrey Lappa.  I hope you enjoy! ;o)  (I am overflowing here, so ready to go!) ~Shalyn Bauschlicher, Associate Yoga Teacher

Douglas King:

*The vital understanding of man on this earth and our relation to the heavens is discovered in the practice of yoga, through right living, and steady pose.  

To this I would like to respond with the definition I found when searching “Satori” (what I know to be temporary Samadhi in Savasana, corpse pose): a flash of sudden awareness, individual enlightenment…”It is often said that when you truly need a teacher-or that which will function in lieu of a teacher-a teacher or satori, for example, will fall upon you.”

*Our physical body can heal and regenerate itself through awareness and interrelated support of the earth, sun and sky.

PRANA, Life Force

*We are inherently supposed to be strong, healthy and vibrant through our days, happy and wise as we age.

*Natural living is awareness of nature and living in harmony by nuturing the native environment and utilizing the fruits naturally present for our health and well being.

*While working to perfect the postures, our mind is challenged to be calm and peaceful in order to work through physical and emotional aspects of the practice.

*Synergize the movement into a powerful charge of energy…

This can be especially helpful when breaking through physical and emotion barriers in the individual practice…I am sure you will hear me repeat the words of my teacher in our practice together, “The pose is not easy, it is not difficult…it is what it is.”

*Regret for things we’ve done can be tempered by time. Regret for things we did not do is inconsolable.

(Book of Vinyasas: Creative Flow for Yoga  by Douglas King)

Still one of my favorite books of sequences.  I love Doug’s classes.

Andrey Lappa:

*Your attention is your “wireless” connection to your object of focus.

*Ego is the separation from things and those around you.

*Yoga is non-duality (unification), control (sign of presence of consciousness) and balance (control of energies).

*Using only physical practice with no balance of breath, meditation and purpose can actually inflate the ego.

For beginners the practice can be very good and humbling for the ego, but when only the only focus is asana development without the practice of the main goals of yoga (unity, control and balance) it can lead to imbalance and strong dualities.

*Yoga is technology teaching how to be conscious.

*God is One with many faces…Oneness has unlimited channels.

*When we eat unorganic foods, we are ingesting poison [residues]…eat unorganic thoughts and you have the same problem.

*For many people around the world, wealth and happiness can be found in a handful of rice: it means for one more week they have life.  (And think of the expressions on the faces of people in Wall Street).

Swami Rama:

*…you don’t need much external information, you already have true knowledge within.  You need to learn to apply the knowledge that you have.

Happy pondering! ;o) Namaste

Love, Shalyn
