Happy Birthday Universe!

Powerful days are upon us! Tomorrow is the Spring Equinox (Thursday, March 20th), and with it comes the advent of new life, new beginnings and fresh new starts. What are you ready to start? The next few days mark the beginning of a new period – the universe celebrates its birthday! This is due to the Sun moving into Aries, starting a whole new yearly cycle. Is there a project or a launch you’ve been waiting to embark upon? This could be a favorable period. And… if you’re lucky enough to live near Los Angeles or New York City, you should not miss these events: March 20th, 7:30pm – Los Angeles March 23rd, 5:30pm – New York City   The Universe is Mathematical As Universal Kabbalists, we look at many factors when considering the right time for embarking upon certain projects and initiatives, based on a practical science of the natural cycles in life. This is the study of patterns that exist everywhere and can be found in the vibration of music, numbers, rhythm and the automatic ebb and flow that is constantly happening. These patterns and cycles are orchestrated by a force far superior to us sitting here on earth. In addition to the period of the universe, we must also look at the period you are in personally — where on the calendar a particular event or day falls in relation to your own day of birth. This, along with various factors, aids us in determining the best timing for various initiatives in one’s life by selecting the time when the most positive forces are present on the “birthday” or start of a particular initiative. Happy Wednesday, Happy Thursday, Happy Friday and Happy Weekend Everyone! May you have a glorious day. Let’s join the world in harmony as we bring on a whole new cycle. During this time may you be blessed with new beginning and fresh new energy. Namaste, Annette...

A Rather Yoga-Disturbing Article

                            The caption reads: “Yoga, like prayer, is not medicine.” It makes me laugh when the “haters” come out to talk about an industry they have no professional experience in. This article is case in point: Rather disturbing article Of course, I have a rebuttal to the unsubstantiated claims that yoga doesn’t work, and the biased opinion of the author. People have been practicing yoga to stay healthy for thousands of years. Yoga is a form of exercise, which we know has been proven over and over medically to work. As a form of exercise, yoga achieves many of the same physical benefits that going to the gym, running, stretching, spinning, walking, achieves. Massage and bodywork fall in this category too. Yoga calms the nervous system, gets the lymph moving, detoxifies the body, reduces inflammation, and overall promotes healing. Most medical doctors today would advocate an exercise regime to complement their patients’ management of disease and various conditions. Yoga as “Medicine” Now if we want to dive into yoga – speaking from my first-hand experience (both personal and with others) yoga has absolutely changed the lives of people for the better. For some people it is their “medicine”, the same way that food can be your medicine. Some people I know wouldn’t be on this planet today if it weren’t for their yoga practice. To make a blanket statement that says that yoga does not have any therapeutic benefits is not understanding HOW yoga works. There are many reasons why this general statement is inaccurate, and many questions I have about how the studies mentioned here in broad-terms were conducted. First let’s go into the spiritual benefits, which are not unique to yoga. Yoga is just one form where the individual can make energetic shifts that end up having a positive effect on the physical body. Yoga (and there are many forms of yoga) has been known to create spiritual awakenings within the individual. Much like massage and bodywork, yoga can also create a perception shift that could make all the difference in how someone lives his or her life. Yoga is an energetic practice, as well as a physical practice, and in some forms of yoga, it is actually first and foremost an energy practice. Therefore benefits may or may not necessarily be quantifiable to the...
