Memorial Day: Grief vs Remembrance vs Honoring

Memorial Day was originally called ‘Decoration Day’ and was established as a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. Memorial Day was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of both Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. It is a date of remembrance, honor and reconciliation. For many who have recently lost loved ones who served and gave their all for what they believed in, it can be a day of grieving over the fresh pangs of loss of their father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, friend, comrade or loved one.

Memorial Day is now celebrated in almost every state on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 – 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays). For many this is most of what this holiday represents to them: a 3-day break from work or school to plan a vacation around.

Red Poppies began to be used as a symbol to wear in of honor those who had died in war or in service after Moina Michael wrote in 1919 the verse:

“We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.” (more…)

What Did I Eat?!

borkinThe Shift Doctors (Marion Ross & Tracy Latz) are thrilled to have Michael Borkin, NMD post as a guest blogger here at Shift Your Life®. Dr. Michael Borkin, NMD is a pioneer in hormone and electrolyte research and is considered to be the “Father of Naturopathic Endocrinology”. He specializes in hormone and electrolyte testing and balancing. He is also one of the creators of the science of bio-identical hormones and transdermal (through the skin) creams. Unique creams are created for each patient to restore hormonal homeostasis. The creams are made up of hormones, hormone precursors, nutrients, homeopathics, herbs and electrolytes. Specific electrolyte and nutrient rich supplements help balance each patient’s bio-chemistry in all their cells, including the brain. Some of the most famous actors, stars and athletes are his patients. They keep his name as a jealously guarded secret so he will personally have time to work with them. They want to take advantage of his knowledge and research so he can create and monitor their special balancing programs. They are desperate to look younger, have more energy, feel their best and perform at optimal levels.

What Did I Eat?!  by I. Michael Borkin, NMD

How many times have you asked yourself, “What did I eat?” No matter how healthy we try to be, we just can’t seem to find real food. I thought I was blessed because as a child I grew up in a household that did not contain sodas or Coco Puffs. However, even the fruits and vegetables we consumed had been sprayed with pesticides such as DDT. In retrospect we realize that not only were we eating poison, but that we had no concept of how it was going to someday poison our children and their children’s children. Recent studies from research dating back to 2005 indicate that what our Great-Great-Great Grandparents were exposed to is even still now active in our bodies causing dysfunction and disease.

The fact is that we been unaware that what we expose ourselves to can have transgenerational ramifications. Until recently we didn’t realize that when the first generation eats a GMO, it can affect as many as five subsequent generations. “Ignorance is bliss” is no longer the acceptable status quo. It is time that we wake up and realize that if we don’t address this issue now, many generations will be affected. When it comes to finding food, if we go back in 90,000+ years time, to the origin of our modern human body, we were nomads and our diet was a reflection of the environment in which we lived. We didn’t have a specific diet, we didn’t cultivate and never had an idea that we even could. Man was dynamic, moving from one place to the next based on several factors. The prevalence of food in a survivable and ideally congenial climate, a desire to find a “greener pasture,” and a lack of plumbing, kept us on the move.

Today our food travels further than we do and is subject to continual assaults from a variety of sources: pathogenic bacteria, pesticides and fumigation and, more recently, the advent of hybridizing staples with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), which are now ubiquitous in food products. Corn’s DNA now contains a gene from soil bacteria called Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) that produces the Bt-toxin. It’s a pesticide that ruptures the stomach of certain insects and kills them.

The Bt-toxin is believed to be completely destroyed in the human digestive system. However, new research confirms just the opposite. Doctors at Sherbrooke University Hospital in Quebec found the corn’s Bt-toxin in the blood of pregnant women and their babies, as well as in non-pregnant women. (Specifically, the toxin was identified in 93% of 30 pregnant women, 80% of umbilical blood in their babies, and 67% of 39 non-pregnant women.) Additional studies have identified the BT toxin to be a danger not only to the first generation that consumes it, but also subsequent generations.

My Jealous Valentine: Is Jealous Love in Your Relationship?

If malice or envy were tangible and had a shape, it would be the shape of a boomerang. -Charley Reese

He that is not jealous is not in love. -St. Augustine

The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves. -William Penn

What is jealousy? Is it the tie that binds or the wedge that drives us apart? What purpose does it serve in our lives and relationships? What drives us to become jealous? Is jealousy envy? Can jealousy be like a cloud with a silver lining?

Jealousy is a reactive state that conveys the negative internal chatter and emotions of insecurity, fear, and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something that the person values, such as a relationship, friendship, or love. Jealousy often consists of a combination of fear-based emotions such as anger, resentment, abandonment, rejection, grief, and disgust… just to name a few. Envy, on the other hand, is a reactive state of discontent and resentment fueled by and linked with a desire for obtaining the (more…)

Consciousness and How it Affects DNA and Water

 

The Shift Doctors interview with Dr.Glen Rein at the Water Conference in Bulgaria discusses the consciousness of water and cells and the scientific effects of intention on cells. Dr. Tracy Latz questions Dr. Rein about the meaning of his research for humans and daily effects of our own consciousness on our cells.

Dr. Rein is a biochemist and expert researcher in subtle energy and consciousness . His research led to changes in the physical structure of water with EM fields, thus changing its physical properties and allowing for its application to produce novel, enhanced effects in products for the skin-care industry. For the past 25 years he has pursued an academic career in traditional biomedical research at prestigious institutions such as Harvard and Stanford Medical Schools, where he studied neuroscience, immunology, psychoneuroimmunology and bioelectromagnetics. His bioelectromagnetics research culminated with an assistant professorship at Mt. Sinai Medical school and a publication in the prestigious journal Nature.
Dr. Tracy Latz is a physician, cell biologist and metaphysician. Dr. Marion Ross is a transpersonal psychologist and metaphysician. The ‘Shift Doctors’ love “Giving You the Keys to Shift Your Life” by bringing forth technologies and information to the public. Find out more at www.ShiftYourLife.com

RemainCentered

How to Remain Centered Over the Holidays

Holidays, even in the best of circumstances, can be stressful due to family, work, school, and cultural expectations and responsibilities. A daily practice can pave the way to keeping you compassionately connected to your self, others and whatever Higher Power you understand or recognize. A daily practice can also reduce stress or anxiety and keep you focused on your journey to shift and transform even in the midst of stressful holiday encounters.

In order to depersonalize the daily stress, negative emotions, and thoughts that we encounter daily, we need to have a regular routine that keeps us balanced in body, mind and spirit. Various cultures approach this dilemma in many different ways using a daily centering practice called Dharma. This (more…)

Testimonials

I wanted to share with you how much I enjoyed experiencing the 12 Keys. I use them every day now, especially at tense moments or when I need answers, and they do come to me almost instantly. I further hope that the others walked away also feeling they too have gained so much insight and that they hold the key…. I hope one day you will offer classes for children.
The 12 Keys are working wonders.… I can’t thank you enough for opening my eyes to this.
Your class was really amazing! I have used it every day.
Thank you so much! I feel like I have a wonderful opportunity now to go and settle some stuff that has been left unsorted for many years… you are an incredible teacher, and I know that everyone today was pretty inspired by you. I’m sure you must have felt the positive energy you instilled into the group.
Going to your class was the best thing I could have done for me, as it unlocked a lot of doors… thank you so much.
‘So, since I started applying the keys to my life… MAN!!! So much has changed I can’t picture that person I was before. I have transformed my life, and now wake every morning with glee and gratitude, and a sense of profound well-being, despite the ongoing challenges that come my way. I feel enormously grounded, and satisfied with work, life, place, and trajectory. I started studying The 12 Keys while in a place of deep wound, and cumulative patterns that had led me to a place of tension, lack of comfort with myself and my direction, and a binding sadness. I felt stuck in Paris, in a job that was increasingly not nourishing, and far from my true place. In the last two years, I have paid off my home in the US, quit my job, moved back to home in New York State, wrapped up life in France, started a new company which is already flourishing, am building community and friendships and work in my home village in the mountains, have a new puppy, and deeply content NOT to be in a relationship for the time being, and feel that health, peace, and ability to really make things happen have all improved to a place that would have been unrecognizable two years ago. I no longer feel like a victim, I am fully responsible for my life in each moment, and I feel joy and sheer glee daily. Does that about sum it up?’
The lessons to be learned from this book are age old but reframed in ways that are easy to incorporate and appropriate to our lifestyle today. They ring true for me because of my experience with cancer patients who display a survivor personality, exceed expectations and more often survive when no one gives them any hope. Shifting and finding the right path, in order to survive, are what various myths and religions teach us. We are to find our way and not lose our lives by becoming what others want us to be. We must, however, have the courage to lose the life imposed upon us by others in order to save the life we desire to live; for women that means choosing to live their authentic life and not a role. It is easier to have coaches and guides to help you on the path to transformation and this book can do that for you.
I have personally experienced the work of Dr. Latz when I was asked to review her and Dr. Ross’ first book. Her material was fresh, innovative, and created results. It opened up a new area of treatment intervention that I had only limited exposure to in the past. I found it helpful, impactful, and informative, and I now apply her teachings in my practice. On a personal level, I find Dr. Latz to be insightful,intuitive,intelligent, and a pleasure to connect with.
Shift is a humble and yet accurate title for a jewel of a book that is filled with easy, genuine practices to support the reader to move into their highest potential of self-actualization. I personally and professionally now use a number of these exercises as daily practices. Whether you are a professional working with patients and clients, or a person interested in wonderful transformation, this book is a must have for your own self-care and for the well-being of those you care for. Dr. Tracy Latz and Dr. Marion Ross gives the reader easy to follow steps on how to change dark and heavy emotional states into physical and emotional lightness of being. They draw on their brilliant talent and training, elegantly sharing universal internal processes that either infringe on our well-being, or bring beautiful and profound liberation. It is a book I read over and over again, the subject matter is this rich. Thank-you Dr. Latz and Dr. Ross.
