We would like to share another great TED talk about how we experience our lives.
This one is with perhaps the world’s most influential living psychologist, Daniel Kahneman, who won the Nobel in Economics for his pioneering work in behavioral economics.

Using examples from vacations to colonoscopies, Nobel laureate Kahneman reveals how our “experiencing selves” and our “remembering selves” perceive happiness differently. This new insight has profound implications for economics, public policy — and our own self-awareness.

Enjoy and Awaken!

New York, NY – September 30, 2009 (pressreleasepoint) – Over 110 top authors, mentors, teachers and coaches came together this week to support the launch of the new book, Shift: A Woman’s Guide to Transformation by Tracy Latz, M.D. and Marion Ross, Ph.D. which rapidly became a #1 Bestseller on Amazon.

This book is a manual for personal transformation that “will empower you and radically change your life.” Dr.’s Latz and Ross define the 12 Keys – the biggest obstacles we all need to overcome to become present, aware and able to create with new perspectives in our lives.

Dr. Bernie Siegel, who wrote the foreword says, “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.”

Jack Canfield, co-author of The Success Principles and founder of the Transformational Leadership Council says, “This is more than your usual book. This is a manual for personal transformation. If you actually do the exercises and meditations in this book, you will radically improve your life. I highly recommend it. “

This book gives profound and genuine practices that help support the reader in transforming their lives. It helps people become aware of where their stress originates. Dr.’s Latz and Ross give bulleted, targeted recommendations at the end of each chapter to show how to most rapidly dissolve the obstacles in one’s life along with real-life examples of how others have shifted their lives with their tools.

This book can be used as an intensive personal healing journey during which the reader shifts his or her situation for a jump start in life; or it can be used as a reference guide to be consulted one chapter at a time whenever a specific issue or challenge arises and stalls forward momentum in life. For anyone truly serious about changing any long-established habits of emotional pattern or thoughts that have them stuck, Shift is the answer.

Tracy Latz, M.D., is a practicing integrative psychiatrist in Mooresville, N.C. Marion Ross, Ph.D. is an international business entrepreneur and transpersonal psychologist practicing in New York and Paris. Both Latz and Ross have used the techniques featured in SHIFT to transform both their own lives and the lives of their patients.

Shift: A Woman’s Guide to Transformation also has two companion meditation CD’s available. For more information, visitwww.12keystoshift.com

Shift Your Life- Shift Your World!
Let’s Help Change the World. The Global Coherence Initiative has started this project to assist with healing the planet. What could be a better use of 2 minutes a day than focusing on love, appreciation and compassion for Mother Earth.


This Care Focus is to radiate pure coherent love to the planetary whole for only two minutes a day for three months. There will also be normal Care Focus assignments during this time. Two minutes a day of pure heart energy amounts to a lot of love from the collective membership and can be very effective through these times.

This is a mini project with a small energy investment but a large potential for effectiveness. Similar projects have been done by other groups in times past, yet their usefulness remains ever-current.

Two Minute Radiance Technique

Picture breathing through the center of your chest (heart), as this helps to warm up your heart center (feelings). Imagine that your heart is like a high radiance light bulb. See the intensity increase as you focus your breath on the intention to fill your heart with outgoing love and compassion.

For this Care Focus, just radiate the light of your coherent heart to mother earth and humanity as a whole for two minutes a day, without assigning a destination or being attached to an outcome. Ask spirit or universal source to use the love for the highest-best for the planetary whole.

When you finish the two minutes, if you have more time and want to radiate heart and care for any specific intention, please do so.

Remember, when you are sending out focused love, appreciation and compassion, this energy processes first through your own system and science has proven that you especially benefit from this experience. (Even though that’s not the motive for sending care, it’s still a healthy add-on.)

Since this is only a two minute technique, we’re asking you to do it each day for three months. The reason for three months is that for most people it’s easier to sustain a commitment for a shorter time than to commit two minutes every day of their life. However, for the ones that could, the planet would significantly benefit.

Go to:http://www.glcoherence.org/ and join this worthy project.

Loads of Love and Light to you all,
Marion Ross PhD., Tracy Latz M.D.

This was a magical weekend of mindfulness and healing. A doorway was opened in my consciousness and I experienced profound healing and energy.
I was at a qigong retreat over the past 3 days. The duel joy of belonging a strong, loving sense of community and practicing in the group energy of 80 people is amazing. What a great way to reawaken your connection with the energy field- the living matrix. We all shared similar goals – to increase our awareness, sense of connection, and to heal ourselves and others. A doorway was opened that allowed us to embrace new perspectives.

Join us at our next gathering in a conference setting. It’s an invitation to reawaken your soul and transform your world.
Go to www.tcmconference.org, or call 1-888-TCM-6909. for more information. CMEs; NCCAOM PDAs (pending).

We will be posting a couple of tips a day from Doc Childre’s De-Stress kit. Doc Childre is the founder of The Institute of HeartMath, an internationally recognized nonprofit research and education organization dedicated to heart-based living – people relying on the intelligence of their hearts in concert with their minds to conduct their lives at home, school, work and play. HeartMath has been researching heart intelligence, stress and emotional management for more than 17 years and applied its findings to practical, easy-to-use tools that have been scientifically developed and tested.
IHM is a recognized, global leader in emotional physiology, stress management and the physiology of heart-brain research and I encourage everyone to go to their website at:http://www.heartmath.org
Here are some practices to help us reduce stress and reset our system to move forward in these changing times.

1. Communicate and interact with others.
One of the most important things that you can do is to communicate your feelings to someone or to a group of people going through similar experiences. Then engage in caring about others and offering emotional support. This especially helps to reopen
your heart, which increases fortitude and emotional balance. Whether you laugh together or cry together, there is often tremendous beneficial release. When people gather to support each other, the energy of the collective whole multiplies the benefit to the individual. It’s known that collective energetic cooperation can increase intuitive guidance and effective solutions for the problems at hand. When a group of people are “in their hearts,” and not just their minds, the collective support helps to lift their spirits, which in turn releases stress buildup and anxiety overload. If you inquire it’s likely that you will be able to find a group of people who meet to address the same issues that concern you. Many people can feel a resistance to being around others; but in times of crisis and stress, group support can be helpful. Often it can prevent the acute stress overload that puts your health at risk. You can also find interactive groups, blogs and helpful services on the Internet.

2. Re-opening the heart feeling.
It is normal at the onset of a crisis for our heart feelings to shut down, especially during the initial shock and anger phase. When our mind operates too long without the heart’s wisdom, it tends to overload from the sense of loss, and then our system gridlocks in anger, fear and despair. It’s understandable to experience this, but it’s really important to reopen your heart connection with people, as you can. When your heart reopens, self-security and confidence can gradually return. Be patient with the process and have compassion for yourself.
A good way to reopen your heart feelings is by offering kindness and compassionate support to others or volunteering somewhere to help others in need, even when you are in need yourself. Even small acts of kindness and compassion can make a big difference. This is one of the quickest ways to reestablish your footing and reduce the stress that could otherwise affect your health. Research has shown that care and compassion release beneficial hormones that help balance and restore your system.
Worry and uncertainty increase stress hormones, even when you feel that you have good reasons to worry. Much stress can be reduced by caring for and interacting more with others. If health problems prevent you from meeting with people, you can still benefit by sending genuine care and compassion to others. If you are home bound, try to have visitors so you can communicate your feelings to help release some of the emotional pressure. If that’s not possible, try to at least communicate with others by letter, phone or e-mail.
More tips later this week.
Stay in your heart!
