The Art of Letting go

St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi

It seems like life has been difficult for a lot people lately and I too had experienced a lot of changes and difficult times. With the economy in bad shape and with so many natural disasters happening to so many people, we wonder if we are going through a period of redefining our value and belief system.

I came across an article by Richard Rohr who is a Franciscan priest who writes about the art of letting go: living the wisdom of Saint Francis. What he taught was so helpful that I decided to summarize it because it is so relevant to what is happening now.

He said, “You must lose your life to find your life, and if you do not let it go you will never find it.” – the paradox is that it is through loss, crisis, stress or limitation that we [Read more...]

Why is understanding how enzymes function crucial to your life potential?

I was in Yunnan, China, and South Tibet. Our group visited a Tibetan herbal medicine factory and the moment I entered the front entryway, there was a huge sign in bold Chinese Characters that said: “Thousands of diseases start with indigestion.”

I learned that Tibetan medicine was different from Traditional Chinese medicine and that the Tibetan doctors read your palms to determine your health. I found out the old Tibetan ritual was very similar to American Indian traditions where they let old people stay in the mountains and die. Students of medicine dissected these cadavers and put together a lot of information in their medical books. From these observations they came up with the bold statement on the wall.

It was 2006 when I visited that factory, and since then I have decided I need to find out more about our digestive system. I found out I need to understand enzymes because they play a big role in our health and also affect our ability to age well. If we can keep our digestive system functioning like [Read more...]

Health Is Wealth

I met Lee Milteer a productivity coach at an internet conference and I receive a newsletter from her every other week. Usually her posts are about motivation and about how to achieve a high performance in business. This time, she talked about health and what she said resonated with me, because I too was going to write something about this connection of health and wealth.

The older I get the more I realize how important health is and we need to take charge of our own health. Her post is so good that I have decided to share it with you.

Lee Milteer’s post:

Last week we talked about health being true wealth. This week I want to continue by giving you some secrets to great health. The first secret you should know about perfect health is that YOU HAVE TO [Read more...]

Are you lucky?

Recently I read a book called “The Awesome Science of Luck” by Peter Ragnar, who has the ability to stack his odds and wins most of the time. His book intrigued me because I had always wondered how my family had been so lucky and how my father could make those critical calls and brought us out of danger. Many people believe that luck is “random” and as a lucky person, you attract people, circumstances, and resources to you that make your dreams come true!

The question remains: Is there really science behind luck? When I learned Feng Shui, I know there is a large component on creating the energy field of [Read more...]

Bitter Pills

Anti-depressants- the most frequently prescribed drugs for those from 20-59- can be a “helpful tool,” acknowledges Julia Ross M.A., the executive director of Mill Valley nutrition clinic, with 80% of their patients go there for depression treatment. The trouble is, they don’t cure anything, so when you go off them you risk becoming depressed again.”

Ross says that because nutrient therapy targets the underlying problem, it can keep people off medication for good.

Over the years, doctors have discovered that a single drug often isn’t enough to fully brighten moods (and even if it is, the pills can create other problems-obliterate sex drive, or the ability to sleep), so many now add a second medication to augment the first, plus something to improve sleep or lift libido. People with hard to treat illnesses can wind up with half a dozen prescriptions. According to Ramin Mojtabai; M.D. PhD, associate professor at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’ study had found that doctors prescribe two or more meds during a single office visit 60% of the time up 20% from a decade ago.

The risk of taking multiple meds is becoming clearer. Most seriously, combining meds can cause diabetes, high cholesterol, and colossal weight gain (40-60 pounds isn’t unusual). It can also churn up the mind or [Read more...]

Navigating Change

Big changes in life are often opportunities for growth, but they can also bring about an intense sensation of fear. Perhaps you are graduating from school, leaving (or losing your job), ending a relationship, (death of a spouse) or heading into retirement. In my case my mother’s death had change my life and sent me into the orbit of a new life. While these life and death events, can open new doors, you may find yourself being terrified of the unknown. So, what can you do if fear arises?

“The most important thing about working with fear is to be very [Read more...]

Temple Bell

Temple Bell

When the temple bell strikes, it makes such a deep sad sound. It echoes and echoes through mountains and valleys. It penetrates into one’s deepest emotions. Without this strike, how can one hear such a thunderous cry! How can one treasure such sorrow forever! I welcome adversity and crisis for I am like the temple bell when struck. I moan and I write and I’ll make sounds for others to remember.

Act Wealthy to Attract Wealth

There are actually two wealth magnets here that work in concert as one. One half will seem obvious and logical, but the other will seem completly illogical, and will be difficult to accept. You need to do this for 90 days. You will see results. You will be amazed. Then you will stick with it even though you may never be able to logically explain it to anyone else.

The 90 days experiment:

LIVING IN THE PRESENT PART II


May K. Yue

“ It is insight into truth, into reality, that frees our minds. However, insight can only occur when we listen, not only to the words of others, but to the meaning behind them. When we listen with complete attention, without preconceived opinions, we perceive the reality beneath words and images. We perceive the truth as the true, the false as the false, and the relationship between the true and the false.”

(4924 Poppy Lane Household)

This period of my life is very special. Almost three years ago my very active mother who was 92 years old then fell very hard and hit her head, after that fall she had changed from a very independent to a very dependent person. It is very sad to see someone lost her freedom in one night when she lost her balance. I live with her and have to change my personal plan. I closed my office and moved it into my basement and with the help of a housekeeper we have been taking care of her since.

She has improved significantly but is never the same since the fall.. The impact of the fall has triggered [Read more...]

Feng Shui the Tao of Youth way

I need to explain what I have been teaching. It started about 3 years ago while I was in Hong Kong and by chance I met a Feng shui Master and his name was Chan Ho Yen. I was very impressed by his ability and also he had a reputation of being very powerful and had helped a lot of my friends.

I thought how I am going to invite him to come to my house in Minnesota so he can help me with the Feng shui. I know he was expensive and he needed to travel all the way to mid west, so it was not very practical. I thought then the only way I can make this happen and was to learn everything about Feng shui from him. I bought all his books and [Read more...]

The Pursuit of Happiness

The Pursuit of Happiness

Excerpt from Dr. OZ’s article.

For years we have been led to believe that if we ‘re falling behind in the joy department, we need only a pill to feel calm and content. antidepressants have been linked to significant side effects, including decreased sexual desire, weight gain and increase risk of suicide.

Myth #1

You should feel happy all the time:

Sadness is not necessarily a sign of illness-it is a normal part of being human and can even be beneficial . Grief is natural and healthy responses that helps us adapt to major losses in the face of stressful challenges, unhappiness can also serve as a beacon to spur positive change. Depression likely evolved to help us cope with environment that as unsatisfying. Low moods can signal that it’s time fo reevaluate what is happening in our lives.

Myth # 2

It’s all about Serotonin:

The most popular antidepressents are drugs called selective serontonin, reuptake inhibitors (SSRIS). These work by increasing levels of a brain chemical called serotonin, which regulates mood. But newer research suggests that two areas of the brain called the hippocampus and Brodmann’s area 25 can also influence despair. In addition, we know that depression is often closely linked to anxiety, against which stress-reducing practices like yoga or meditation can be powerful weapons.

Myth # 3

Pills offer the easiest fix.

About 15 percent of adults will experience major depression at some point in their lives, but many others suffer from mild to moderate forms of the diease. In those cases,research has shown that lifestyle intervention, such as therapy and exercise, can be as effective as medication. And they’re free of one of the most common antidepressant side effects: weight gain.

Myth #4

Depression looks the same on evereyone.

Everyone experiences depression differently. some people eat too much and sleep too long, others find that they wake too early and have not appetite. the bottom line is that depression tends to magnify each sufferer’s unique vulnerabilities, and as such , physicains often have trouble making a clear-cut diagnosis. If your doctor says that you’re depressed and recommends antidepressants, consider seeing a mental health specailist for a second opinion. While untreated depression can be dangerous, taking medication when you don’t need it can expose you to potentially harmful side effects.

After reading Dr. Oz’s articel above. I like to also add that the kind of food you eat to have the best cellular health and alsoto balance your hormone will help too. In Key 1 and key 2 of my book “Tao of Youth” will show you how I personally learn to get my body, mind and spirit in line so I truly can be happy.
