The multiverse, remote controls, and Gwyneth Paltrow

So we continue to explore what it means to be bodies without walls. Meaning, the energy-frequency-field structure you are doesn’t stop at your skin. Kind of like a flame, whose glow appears condensed at the candle’s wick… but then radiates into a halo of light…and thereafter dissipates slowly, without a hard-and-fast end. But we’ll talk more about this later. For now, we’re going to talk about something even weirder: many versions of you! Many versions of you require many universes to live in…and in comes the concept of the multiverse. In the quantum mechanics “many worlds” interpretation, our world is only one of many possible worlds that exist simultaneously.  ‘Possible’ because the quantum tree is a probabilistic one…with outcome depending… READ MORE

Holidays, merc retro, numerology, solstice (+ more) for a new year

Oh, I had so many blogs planned for you this month. From writing a heartfelt “i.m.burnout” piece that addresses a popular topic these days, to “Shiva and your bones,” which speaks to ongoing creation-destruction cycles around and within us. But in the past few days I have found myself in a conversation that I would like to share with you. It has proven insightful for others and so my hope is that it will also help you in some way, as 2016 is a year that many of us would like to release at both individual and societal levels. Which brings to mind the phrase, “As above, so below.” This popular saying originates with the Hermetic tradition of Late Antiquity…. READ MORE

i.m.stress

When you are stressed, where do you feel it in your body? Place one hand on that area. Chances are, answering that question took you less time than reading this sentence. Perhaps you put your hand on your neck (i.e. muscle tension), head (i.e. headaches), or gut (i.e. digestive discomfort)…the list is as long as the stressors responsible for them. If I were to ask you what’s causing the stress, my guess is that those of you with neck tension would not reply, “interaction of actin and myosin filaments,” just as those with headaches wouldn’t say “problems with pain-sensitive structures in my head.” Even though these physical realities exist, it is more likely that you’d mention a fight with a… READ MORE

What’s your sign…and what does it have to do with your health?

“What’s your sign?” It is a question that floats around society—friends ask it, newspapers print it, and movies script it. You might not remember when you first learned about your sign—or how—but chances are that you not only know it, but also the basic attributes associated with it. For instance, Leos are known to be charismatic and courageous, while Aries are active and headstrong. Leo, Aries, Aquarius… whatever your ‘sign,’ the reference is usually to your sun sign—the zodiac sign the sun was rotating through during the month of your birth (e.g. individuals born July 23 – August 22 are of the sun sign Leo). As with most fields of study, there is more than meets the eye and this… READ MORE

Just be.

Just be. Be happy, gregarious, inquisitive…whichever adjectives you want, whatever qualities you feel are true to you. Actually be them. Embody them through the way you walk, the words you say, the foods you eat, the clothes you wear, the company you keep. And know that in being you, you are enough. Somehow, we westerners have forsaken “being” in our relentless pursuit of “doing.” It’s as if, over time, we harnessed the parts of us that are active and productive, and started rewarding and lauding them without limit. A successful business person, therefore, must be the CEO of not one but five companies; a successful student attends Harvard undergraduate and graduate schools; a successful mother raises perfect kids while also keeping… READ MORE

i.m.handy

Look at your two hands and appreciate them for a moment. [Pause]. Evolutionarily speaking, our hands are a defining aspect of the human species. In fact, much of our ability to walk on two feet (bipedalism) is so that we can use our hands to gather and eat food, communicate (signing was a proto-language), and make tools to create (and destroy) things. This handiness took millions of years to evolve. So how handy are you? What do you do with your hands every day? Apart from texting and typing, your hands are quite amazing in their ability to bring your thoughts and dreams to life. In other words: to manifest (note how not-so-coincidentally the Latin root manus means “hand”). For… READ MORE

i.m.stardust

Your body literally brings to life the story of the stars. And they are not as hard to access as you might think because they already live and breathe within you. Really. Stars consist primarily of helium and hydrogen, and during their life-death cycles over the past billions of years, they have fabricated almost every other element, as well, including carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. Lo and behold, these essential elements are the same ones that comprise life as we know it; the same ones found in the soil, grass, food… and you. Hydrogen, for instance, is part of the water molecule (H2O) that constitutes over half of your body’s mass. Carbon is distributed throughout the double strands of your DNA…. READ MORE

i.m.resilient

To die and be reborn, you gotta be resilient. After last month’s newsletter discussing how childbirth was a portal to a new me, many of you shared stories of your own personal phoenix rising from the ashes: moving out of an abusive work situation and into a new state, new job, & new hobbies (including climbing 500ft trees!); taking a financial hit but still starting the integrative health practice you were born for; overcoming personal loss to—finally!—write the book that has been inside of you for years; fracturing a bone and, instead of becoming your own best victim, viewing the injury as a lesson to slow down and enjoy life’s journey…and slowing down & enjoying life’s journey. You are transitioning… READ MORE

i.m.worthy

Ever heard the saying “you are what you eat”? Well, it’s true. Food that you eat ultimately turns into you. It is a practical magic that occurs via absorption, a process of the small intestine. Here, a walnut that began as something seemingly separate from you finishes being digested into its molecules (e.g., protein, fat). These molecules, via your bloodstream, are then delivered to the rest of you and become, for example, parts of your hair or hormones. What happens, then, if: – You don’t make time to eat? – You eat healthy food but on the go, in front of your laptop, or on the phone? – You give your body what it needs only after finishing your to-do’s?… READ MORE
