1. That much gathers more is true on every plane of existence and that loss leads to greater loss is equally true.
2. Mind is creative, and conditions, environment and all experiences in life are the result of our habitual or predominant mental attitude.
3. The attitude of mind necessarily depends upon what we think. Therefore, the secret of all power, all achievement and all possession depends upon our method of thinking.
4. This is true because we must “be” before we can “do,” and we can “do” only to the extent which we “are,” and what we “are” depends upon what we “think.”
5. We cannot express powers that we do not possess. The only way by which we may secure possession of power is to become conscious of power, and we can never become conscious of power until we learn that all power is from within.
6. There is a world within – a world of thought and feeling and power; of light and life and beauty and, although invisible, its forces are mighty.

“The chakra system offers a framework for understanding human energy in a way that integrates mind, body and spirit. “Chakra”, the Sanskrit word for ”wheel”, refers to energy vortices in the human body first described over 4000 years ago in India. Chakras may be conceptualized as organizing center for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life energies.” - Patricia Day Williams, M.D.

What makes the human brain unique? What feature supports intelligence and creative thinking? Astrocytes? Astrocytes are non-neuronal, star shaped glial cells that can be found numerously in the central nervous system. Not only do they control synaptic strength between neurons but they also communicate amongst themselves and influence how well the brain performs. Astrocytes release and absorb (regulate) chemicals and neurotransmitters to either amplify or suppress communication between neurons, which is the basic component of information processing and learning.

We adopted Autumn a little over a year ago and it has been a long, scenic road to the angel we have today. She was picked up on the side of the road as a puppy, probably about 6 months old, and brought to the SPCA. She spent the next 6 months of her life there in a cage.
I saw her picture in December 2012 and was drawn to her silver eyes, sweet face, and long ears. I couldn’t believe she hadn’t been adopted yet! So, I went down to the SPCA to find out more about her.
Once at the SPCA I made my way back to the cages full of dogs, they were all barking loudly and jumping on the cage doors. And there sat my Autumn Bottom (one of her many nicknames) resting on her cot, quiet and curious. She had me fooled! I fell in love and went through the process of bringing her home with me.
We had awhile to wait because she had to be spayed and visit the veterinarian about her torn ears. She was shaking her head and banging her them on the cage which ended up leaving permanent little tears in the tips. The veterinarian prescribed ointment for the tips but what we found out later was that she had a deep inner ear infection causing her to shake her head. So, while at the SPCA she continued to injure them and they weren’t really getting better.
They wouldn’t release her until she was better but after waiting about two months, I begged them to let me take her. I knew that I could focus my attention on her health. It took some convincing but off we went to the veterinarian that I bring my other two dogs to. They ran tests and found many types of bacteria growing deep in her ear and prescribed oral antibiotics as well as ear drops. We did a month of treatment, went back for more tests, still had a small amount of bacteria left and continued one more month of oral antibiotics and a different prescription for ear drops. Oh, I forgot that she also had yeast between her toes which called for antibiotic wipes twice a day until the skin improved.
Benefits of Stretching:
- increases vitality
- protects from injury
- increases flexibility
- strengthens the body
- improves muscle tone
- re-aligns the body so that it functions effectively
- regulates the internal organs, keeping all systems functioning efficiently
- slows the aging process
- enhances concentration
- fights depression
Stretching also assists in the elimination of lactic acid in the muscles that cause muscle cramps and post-training aches and pains. This is extremely important if you run or work out often, and by stretching fully after a workout you will increase your endurance and reduce post workout aches.
Stretching before a workout can do more harm than good; you should do a light warm up with dynamic stretching (such as walking lunges) before exercise and static stretching after.
