Marilyn humbly credits the information that is received during each private session, and in the workshops, to God, the Angels, Masters, Guides and ascended loved ones. She opens herself up to All Divine-level Communication with the pure intention of being the conduit of messages that will aid those who are ready to spread their wings, understand, and flourish.  The Angels have the road map of our past, present and future, and hence know what is best for us at all times, they know the answers to our questions, and they know what we wrote on our mission statements before we entered this life. They are always with us, and are longing to help us reconnect to our truth of being, but because of free-will they are unable to step in* unless we ask for their help.Are you longing for answers and directions? Do you “miss” yourself and want to find yourself again?  There are answers for you. There are directions and solutions. There is no need to suffer any longer in the numbed state of avoidance, getting by, or muddled in conformity of what is not you. Asking for Divine-level assistance can help with soul-direction and may bring answers to questions that have been plaguing you. Few have not felt the shifts and changes as the human realm makes a marketable escalation in conscious thinking and awareness; in fact, the biggest proliferation in history. This reformation can be experienced and witnessed physically, energetically, and emotionally, and because the energies with this shift are so concentrated, it can sometimes make people feel they are in upheaval, and in a turmoil-laden spiral…out-of-control, confused, lonely and sad. Often people are unaware that the problems they are experiencing are related to this heightened awareness period. Are you longing to be fulfilled in your life and currently feel that you are not? Perhaps you are experiencing some of the above emotions, or a longing for something, and you just do not know what or why. Separation from your path thus, inability to achieve your mission statement can create these perceptions.Is it time for you to ask for help…ask for a flashlight to find your way?Marilyn never knows what messages will be communicated, and who will be conveying the messages. She works in an Angelically protected space, and asks for information that will align with your highest and greatest good for improvement, progression, and elevation. *to clarify, God and the Angels are able to step in to a soul’s life if it has been written in their mission statement before entering this life.Marilyn is available for phone sessions as well as in-person.For more information, please visit the Marilyn Lawrence website or Marilyn's Facebook page.  Marilyn will be hosting a 28 Day Sculpting Challenge.

Bowen

I’m Vickie Fu, and I think you need to know about Bowenwork. Bowenwork is hands-on healthcare. It consists of sequences of rolling movements of the practitioner’s thumbs or fingers over precisely located sites on the body. These movements serve to signal the body to remember how to heal a variety of health issues. I stumbled across Bowenwork looking to help my husband Richard who had suffered for over 20 years from frequent & unpredictable flare ups of lower back pain & spasms. He had tried acupuncture, chiropractic care, physical therapy, new mattresses, pain meds… At times, Richard’s back pain would keep him home from work for days & off seeking quick medical attention. After 2 sessions of Bowenwork, Richard’s back pain & spasms had resolved!! Since then he has not had to stay home from work because of back pain! I was amazed to witness that such a gentle therapy could be so effective & long lasting! I decided to look more into Bowenwork therapy & discovered that it has successfully addressed a wide variety of health & wellness issues. I made an appointment to experience a Bowenwork session for myself & to see if it could be something helpful for my son with autism. The timing was perfect because my allergies seemed to be worsening every year & requiring more medications (one non-sedating antihistamine & a few other prescriptions) as well. I was prescribed an inhaler to be used as needed & possibly around the clock if my respiratory symptoms worsened. In fact, the night before my first Bowenwork appointment, I barely slept sitting in a chair in order to breathe better from my coughing & congestion. I was unsure how I would respond to a Bowenwork session since my symptoms were so severe & bothersome. Well, again I was AMAZED, my cough & congestion were relieved significantly during this first session and my body was so relaxed that I experienced my best night’s sleep in months!! I returned for another session, became symptom free & have since tapered off ALL my allergy medications, including my inhalers & nasal sprays! As a pharmacist, I am very familiar with the drugs that are prescribed for a wide variety of symptoms and health conditions, along with the myriad of side effects as well.  So, I strive to keep things simple in terms of addressing the health & wellness concerns for my own family, a less is best approach when it comes to using over-the-counter & prescription drugs.  To witness my husband’s back pain resolving after 2 sessions of Bowenwork & my own allergy symptoms relieved so effectively to the point of being medication free has been simply astonishing! Basically, Bowenwork helps the body to reset and rebalance towards repair and recovery.  I was fascinated that such a gentle therapy could have such profound effects.  So, Harry Wharff (my Bowenwork practitioner) & his wife Bev encouraged me to enroll in a Bowenwork class.  I did just that to satisfy my curiosity & to learn something that I could apply to help my own family & friends. I quickly found myself practicing not just on my family & friends, but neighbors & friends of friends… I was having a blast working on case studies & thinking about how different Bowenwork procedures could affect the body.  I was also encouraged & delighted to see many clients’ relying less on a drug regimen to manage their symptoms (e.g. muscle spasms, pain, headaches…) as they found more effective relief and resolution from their Bowenwork sessions!   My heart still does a happy dance for those one session wonders!   Realizing that I was able to actually help people live better, I proceeded through the courses and became a certified practitioner. As a Bowenwork practitioner, I am enjoying the opportunities to serve others at various ages & stages of health/ illness, using my hands as a labor of love & care.  It is a privilege & a pleasure to help people live better & experience some amazing results with Bowenwork therapy.  I thank & praise God for such an opportunity to serve others as a Bowenwork practitioner!! I am passionate about living life fully & in a God honoring way, balancing my life with my best friend and husband (Richard) & 3 kiddos (Joshua, Preston & Erica) and serving others in my community.  Thank you!But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.  -Isaiah 40:31(NLT)

Matt Monarch

Ayurveda, Nutrition, Raw Foods

  Matt Monarch has been at the forefront of the Raw Foods Movement for over 16 years. Matt and his family are expats and reside in Vilcabamba, Ecuador, which is known as the "Valley of Longevity". Many people consider Matt’s family ‘extreme’ due to how they embrace their ‘all natural’ way of living. For example, they eat a 100% raw food diet, grow around 90% of their own biodynamic & organic food, had a successful unassisted home waterbirth without any doctors, hospitals, midwives or doulas, have never used a diaper, homeschool (well actually un-school), don’t vaccinate, and so on. Matt and his family moved to Ecuador to live in a safe, healthy environment with pristine air, no "chemtrails", great soil, weather and water and very low cost of living (e.g. 4 avocados or mangoes for $1). In this more natural, less-regulated environment it was easy for them to set up their own organic gardens and orchards and live a more natural lifestyle. On their YouTube TV Show, they’ve shown rental houses in Vilcabamba, Ecuador for as little as $150 a month and entire homes built for as little as $8000. Many people unfortunately have fear programs these days that keep them from making even one natural choice. Matt teaches healthy eating as a critical first step to help people break out of this ‘Matrix’. Matt has met thousands of people around the world who have healed from practically every known disease by embracing a natural way of life, including improving their dietary lifestyle. Matt travels worldwide teaching about healthy eating and healing from degenerative diseases. Matt shares many different methods to help people in their healing process, whether they want to follow a strict 100% Raw Food Diet or choose a simple cooked/raw Whole Foods Diet, void of processed foods. Matt has worked with numerous clients, celebrities, nutritionists and doctors over the years, and has studied all of the alternative diets and methods on the market today. Matt is the CEO of ‘The Raw Food World’, which is the largest online Raw Food & Superfoods store in the world; www.TheRawFoodWorld.com . Matt has dedicated his life to sourcing the highest quality Raw Foods and Superfoods on the planet. On Matt’s YouTube channel, you can see many of The Raw Food World’s Superfoods being sourced worldwide, including fields of Maca located in a pristine National Reserve, Camu Camu from remote regions of the untouched Amazonian Rainforest, only accessible by boat, many other Superfoods located on small family farms at over 13,000ft elevation on the slopes of the Peruvian Andes and so much more. Matt Monarch’s wife Angela Stokes-Monarch was the number one health story of the year on CNN. She used to weigh 300 pounds and lost more than half her body weight by embracing the Raw Food Lifestyle. Their happy and healthy daughter Oria was born at home on November 20th, 2011, surprising everyone, as Matt and Angela had kept her pregnancy and birth a total secret in order to avoid external fears, pressures and concerns about their natural way of living. Oria is loved and adored by thousands of people worldwide, who stay up to date with Matt’s popular ‘The Raw Food World’ TV Show on YouTube.

She also offered workshops for parents who were simply interested in being the best parents they could possibly be.A Few Positive Notes From Cristie:"I believe it is with God's help, Creative Visualization and a Positive and Happy Disposition I have been able to overcome many serious life challenges. I have made exercise and a healthy diet a very important part of my daily life. I do not, nor have I ever, allowed health issues to control my life.  ANYTHING can be overcome with the proper attitude. I honestly practice what I preach. Meditation & Prayer are very instrumental in my life...and it can be in yours as well! Let me help you overcome your greatest challenges!"As a Mom and Wife;"ALL of my children have been hospitalized at one time or another, some more than once. I saw my children through Spinal meningitis, osteomyelitis (which almost cost her leg), MRSA, Giardia, broken bones, (LOTS!), stitches, kidney disorders, very serious, life threatening respiratory illnesses, putting one of the kids in intensive care for a week.  Of course the kids got concussions whenever they got around to it and we even went a couple rounds with hand, foot and mouth disease which lead to Scarlet fever and subsequent complications even put one child in a wheelchair for a couple of months. After 21 years of marriage I went through an ugly divorce, aren't they all? But, I am re-married to my high school sweetie now and my children are all grown and in good health. That which did not kill us definitely made us stronger...and happier!"Why Do I Tell You All of This?"I am not trying to dazzle anyone with my life’s experiences and I certainly do not ever  want sympathy for the challenges I have dealt with. I believe that life brings with it important lessons and wisdom and if we pay attention and choose growth over self-pity. Positive thinking and gratitude are our greatest weapons against depression and unhappiness. I also believe that a sense of humor is the key to getting through this life. If we look hard enough we can find something to laugh about in just about all of life’s situations, both the good and the bad. Until now, only family and my very closest friends have known of the challenges I have faced. This is all part of my strategy to overcome difficulties. Fake it 'til you make it really is a wonderful philosophy! When I have chosen to tell others about some of the things I have overcome they are usually shocked, telling me that they never had any clue that I had any challenges or difficulties at all. That has always been my goal. The more you talk about your challenges in life, the more power you give those challenges. You give them strength & power. When you focus on a happy, positive attitude you give THAT your strength & power! This is the key to a happy life! I KNOW this firsthand!"

Astrology, Spiritual Healing, Spirituality

From a very early age, Andrea has been fascinated with the metaphysical. Early on, it was contained by what was available to her: catholic doctrine and travel to distant lands (her mother was a travel agent). Andrea remembers looking at magnificent churches, cathedrals and mosques with wonder, excitement and imagination, her whole body filled with heightened sensitivity for any bit of esoteric knowledge to be imparted upon her. She was officially an energy junkie! Later on, Andrea pursued economics and finance as a practical foundation, but always found the time to continue her spiritual quest through a variety of sources. With astrology, and a touch of astro-theology, the whole world started to make sense. Andrea has developed an eclectic blend of various astrological teachings, healing techniques and conventional studies to bring a much needed practical application to her work.  Today, she's a soul-centered astrologer who is passionate about helping every individual realize their full potential. Andrea is thrilled to guide others to see the divinity within, and to use the unique gifts of their chart to be the confident pioneers on their own journey of life.    A Brief Moment With Andrea BryantQ: Describe yourself in three words:A: Empowerment through self-knowledge OR Evolving by Awareness Q: What are you passionate about?  A: Empowerment through self-knowledge and Evolving by AwarenessI am passionate about sharing the ancient wisdom of astrology in a practical way that gives people the tools to heal and access the best part of themselves. They can, then, steer their life in a way that helps them feel attuned both inwardly and outwardly. The Age of Aquarius is the age of humanitarian service but that can only be achieved when one is aligned with who they soulfully are and living it courageously.Q: What is unique to you about your work?A: What is unique about my work is that I encourage people to place a great deal of emphasis on inner values. At a time when society places so much focus on material success or fame, I encourage people to pay attention to what’s going on inside. What are the personal values that fulfill the soul? For without paying attention to what’s really important, you may find yourself outwardly successful but inwardly empty.Q: Where do you see earth/humanity going in the next ten years?A: As we enter the age of Aquarius there will be more awareness and urge for conscious humanitarian service to people, animals and the planet. Aquarius is associated with concrete knowledge and intellect. So the question will be “how can we use that knowledge for the benefit of all? “ Aquarius asks us to express love through the intellect.  Every age has its positive and negatives. In order to have the best outcomes in the age of Aquarius we need to balance it with the opposing energy of Leo. Leo has a strong sense of self and knows her creative self-expression is an expression of divinity itself. A soul-centered Leo desires to shine/illuminate via her soul. Aquarius wants to be of service to the whole, but we can’t eliminate the individual identity. I predict there will be many in government that want to make a one-size-fits-all decision for everyone, but as I said, this will not bring out the best aspects of Aquarius.Q: What do you fear/or what are your blocks? A: Fear, for me, is not aligning with my souls purpose and living up to my fullest potential .Q: What is fear to you? What do your clients fear/or what are their blocks? How do you help clients or other conscious beings, including earth herself? What is healing/freedom? How do we get healing/freedom?A: Fear is the result of a feeling that you won’t get what you need. It is associated with the water element, emotions and the moon. The water element is emotional. Its’ focus is on inner values as opposed to outer rewards. The moon is a store house for all your emotional memories and impressions from all your life experiences from the moment odivf birth. This storage can be pictured as a vast deep ocean within the psyche. The deep ocean currents represent you needs, desires and fears. Everyone has the water element in their chart. The house cusps on cancer, scorpio and pisces show which areas of their life someone will need to turn inward to how we feel about things. Fears will arise when people feel their needs aren’t being met. Blocks will arise when people resist change. Astrology helps validate an individual’s unconscious behavior as simply an expression of all those stored up emotional memories. Oftentimes people try to cover up or deny their behavior. This is called the shadow aspect (like the side of the moon we don’t see). I encourage people, through astrology, to look at their emotions, as a way of seeing they are just expressions of taking care of ourselves. When we were children, we handled situations we had no control over and we put those in our storage banks and use them unconsciously. Now we can look at the situations we were put in with compassion and understanding. Face them, feel into them and love them for the tools that helped us survive. The result is a tremendous feeling of self-love, empowerment and the ability to make different choices from that point on. Marji, at this point I thought we could have a discussion about tomorrow's (Sunday Feb 26 @ 7AM Pacific Time) new moon solar eclipse.Q: Andrea, what is happening today and why is it important?A: Today have a New Moon Solar Eclipse, at 8 degrees Pisces.  Our last eclipse was Feb 11 and it was a full moon lunar eclipse. Eclipses are important for several reasons. 1) Energies of eclipses last for 5 to 6 months. The degrees of the eclipses will be sensitive degrees for the next 5 months.  2) They represent areas of crisis. Meaning, they show up to show us what crisis is happening and how we can focus our conscious attention to resolve the problem. In today’s solar eclipse, the moon passes between the sun and the earth, blocking out the light of the sun for a short period of time. We can interpret this as our subconscious nature (moon) is shadowing our conscious expression of self (sun). In other words, our emotions and shadow side need to be reckoned with if we want our true self to fully shine. If you have a planet that is being aspected by the eclipse then it will get involved in the theme of that eclipse.Q: So what is the "theme" of tomorrow's eclipse?A: A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention, and a symbolic portal for new beginnings. New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you'd like to create, develop, cultivate, make manifest. The eclipse happens at 8 degrees Pisces. As a soul-centered astrologer I will explain the symbol of Pisces as the two fish, swimming in opposite directions, connected by a silvery chord at the center. The fish represent the duality of the soul and personality within man and the chord at the center is the heart. Jesus, who brought in the Piscean Age, was referred to as the Sacred Heart. The heart is the union between our Mystical Source and our human body. Pisces represents refined intuition, imagination and creativity, universal love and unity with everything and everyone. Pisces is variable water, so it is an emotional sign and receives information by feeling deeply.  All signs have a challenging aspect to them, and for Pisces this can be being hyper-sensitive, moody, changeable, and prone to self-pity and escapism (addictions). So, the sky above is showing us what is needed in the world at this time and the work we need to start for our Piscean "true self" to shine. Pisces watery nature says we must tap into our feelings to access our mystical, spiritual nature of our soul and anchor it in our heart. The Moon says "wait a minute", first you've got to tap into, become conscious of, and feel the shadow side of your psyche that blocks this reality for you. So, we get hit with a double dose of emotional demands. This all happens at 8 degrees Pisces. 8 meaning success, abundance and power. So, if you're willing to go deep within your feelings and access what's holding you back and allow a real transformation to take place, you're guaranteed success!
