Blue Moon and Muscle Testing. Not Just Hocus Pocus!

     Have you been feeling out of sorts lately? Kind of like you're in a fog? Well, you are not the only one! We have a full "Blue" Moon coming up on July 31 and it's a doozy! The reason it is called a Blue Moon is because it's the second full moon of this month. And it's also super powerful. Please read the next section of this newsletter to know how it will affect you and what you can do about it!
     And have you heard of Muscle Testing? I've heard of those two words, but I never understood what it exactly was until ReSheeda started working here. She explained it to me and showed me what goes on during it, and I have to say that it is awesome stuff! Read the section on Muscle Testing and see if it is something you're interested in. Trust me, it's cool.

     Once in a Blue Moon - July 31, 2015. Where did that expression come from?
     A blue moon occurs when there are two full moons in the same month. Because a moon cycle lasts for about a month, the timing has to be just right to get two in the same month.
July 2 was a full moon. July 31 will be, too. Hence, blue moon 2015.
The last time this happened was August 2012, when there was a full moon on August 31 that year. The next blue moon will be an even rarer event. Because of their timing coinciding with a leap year, both January and March of 2018 will have a blue moon. The last time that happened was 1999.
To answer a common question: no, the moon won't actually be the color blue. While there are some conditions that can cause the moon to appear a shade of blue-smoke, a concentration of certain particles-the name has nothing to do with the moon's color.
It dates back to a 16th-century piece of literature using the word "belewe," to betray, to refer to a moon that doesn't properly mark the end of a farming season. The "blue" caught on in the early 1900s and now generally refers to two full moons in the same month.
Next blue moon: Jan 31, 2018.

     And the effects of a Blue or Full Moon? All objects including stars, planets and satellite bodies along with their attributes emanate subtle frequencies. These physical attributes and subtle-frequencies affect us in varying degrees at a physical and subtle-level. The frequencies emanating from the Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body (i.e. mind of human beings). By 'mind' we mean our feelings, emotions, and click here to read more

     And now to switch gears: What is Muscle Testing? Is that just hocus pocus? Often as a holistic practitioner, I am asked these questions in my line of work in Alternative Medicine, Holistic Medicine, and Energy Medicine. Here I offer answers based on my knowledge and experience.
Muscle Testing, or formally, Applied Kinesiology, is something I perform daily. Historically, it is a technique developed by Dr. Goodhart, a chiropractor, during the 1960's. Today is it used globally by millions of professionals. Applied Kinesiology has various names: Total Body Modification (TBM), Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET), Applied Psycho Neurobiology (APN), Autonomic Response Testing (ART), Applied Psycho-NeurobiologyPsycho (APN), and Touch for Health. I simplify its name and call it Muscle Testing.
The basis of Kinesiology is that the body is like an electrical piece of equipment, which is controlled by an incredibly complex computer, namely the brain. The brain continuously communicates with each of the 639 muscles in the body.

If a muscle is electrically in balance, it is possible to measure a constant electrical signal from the brain to that muscle and back again, much the same as two faxes 'talking' to each other. However, when the body is overstressed (through a chemical, emotional, structural or electrical cause), the electrical signals in one or more muscles go weak. It is like a fuse in your fuse box blowing. The body figures that it is better to blow a fuse than the whole thing.
I use muscle testing as a non-invasive way of evaluating the body's imbalances and assessing its needs. It involves testing the body's responses when applying slight pressure to a large muscle, to provide information on energy blockages, the functioning of the organs, nutritional deficiencies, and food sensitivities, among other things. It can also be used to test the body's responses to herbs and other remedies.

     There is nothing magical about muscle testing. It's important for me to educate clients about how and why it works. I was introduced to muscle testing through a Naturopath Doctor in 2006 when my then one-year-old son was facing possible surgery. He muscle tested my child and advised me as to what herbs would fix his digestive issues. In comparison, the hospital offered no other remedy but surgery. I took the Naturopath's advice and my son recovered.  

This led to my mission to get trained in various holistic techniques to help people when traditional medicine fails them. It is called holistic medicine because I treat the "whole" person, never just a symptom. The root of my help stems from my heart, not my pockets. My goal is to help hundreds, perhaps to reach millions if that is what I am led to do. I challenge those who don't understand holistic techniques to open yourself up to knowledge that can bring your health into the light.

Oracle Thursday 07/23/15

     Every Thursday I do "Oracle Thursday." It's an intuitive/psychic reading in video format (well, mostly). There are times when YouTube or my internet isn't working properly and so I will just post the pictures of the oracle cards with my written insight. Here is this weeks. I am using the Healing with Your Angels oracle deck. Enjoy!

Inspiration Comes in All Shapes and Sizes

     What inspires you? I often wonder that about people. How and what do you see, hear, feel, know that makes you feel inspired and do the things you do?

      I suppose you can find inspiration in all sorts of things. I recently downloaded an app on my phone that will send me a random affirmation twice a day. I find them to be inspiring. I follow one of my favorite authors (Augusten Burroughs) on twitter and his posts sometimes inspire me. And then there are times, more often than not, that I will feel compelled to pull a card from one of my psychic decks and see what it has to say to me. A time such as that falls upon me now. The card shown below, Deception & Envy, is from The Psychic Tarot deck.

     Immediately upon looking at the card and the two word description of it, you would think this is a negative message.  Of course, when using your intuition and gut instincts, you will learn that this card holds multiple meanings. When I see this card, I automatically look at the mask he is removing from his face. That simple act tells me that he is no longer blinded by a situation and is seeing things for what they truly are. I also feel this card denotes that the truth is coming out and whatever blocks you will soon fall away. The colors green and gold display throughout it and those colors signify healing, health, money, prosperity, new beginnings, and freedom - financially and emotionally. What do you see when you look at this card? Initially and upon looking further?

     This card also inspires me to continue looking at whatever situation is running through my mind for what it exactly is. It is neither good or bad. It just is. And isn't that the case with most things? It helps to inspire me to let go of control, which is something I have a hard time doing - especially when it comes to love and relationships. Now, you may not be into this sort of psychic/spiritual mumbo-jumbo, and that is totally okay. You don't have to be. But, all I want to know is: what inspires you?

     If you are into this sort of thing and would like to talk more about it, please schedule a reading with me. You can easily do it by going here: Schedule Now.

My 2nd Year at the Narragansett Summer Running Festival

     Narragansett put on another road race at Stonehill College this weekend. And what a turn out! Saturday is a 5K and 10k, and Sunday is a half marathon. All of you runners are amazing!!

     I enjoy offering post-race massage at events like this one. I love being able to have the chance to offer a little bit of relaxation to those who need it. And for those who received it today, you definitely seemed appreciative, and I appreciate that. And what made the day even better was that ReSheeda offered to help me. She spoke with many runners about what we do and gave out a bunch of goodie bags. I am very thankful for her assistance. She even spent a couple of minutes taking photos of what I do best. Check 'em out!

Welcome, July! Welcome, Summer!

     There's a full moon tonight in the sign of Capricorn. It marks a time to get things done and balanced! And isn't that something we all need and strive for in our lives? Balance is wonderful. It allows for organization and contentment to enter our lives. Peace and abundance will pounce upon us and really makes us reflect what our true desires are. This month will also be a good time to set in motion those strong desires. Amazing connections with people will be made, and you'll be able to move forward. Now is definitely the time to charge ahead.

     And ahead I will charge! I feel a sort of "quickening" happening in my life. The things I've been desiring for the past several months are starting to appear, and yet, they're slightly different . . . not so much from what I expected, but just different. And it's not a bad thing. I feel this sense of love and romance around me, as well as a steady busyness within my business.  I will be gearing up and making those steps towards what I really want to happen for 2016. And it has to do with love and travel :)

     More on that later. For now, I will enjoy the great things coming my way. You should, too.
