A Journey to BLISS through Yoga – with Marites Florentino (by Heidi Hornlein)

marıtes 2When the Eastern Philosophies entered the West in the 60ies of the last century many people started a spiritual path which was truly different from what Western Churches had offered so far. Meditation came into fashion and people reached unexpected realisations – or disappointments when it didn’t work for them. Most meditative paths keep the body still, work only on the mind. But Yoga does the opposite: using the body for certain goals:  It was “illumination” originally, then it became a common tool for fighting our modern conditions like stress and to get into relaxation through the Asanas, through body positions which extend and challenge the habitual physical state.
Actually, practicing YOGA isn’t confined to one or the other. What it certainly is: a journey into deeper states of experience of self and of existence. Our Guest +Marites Florentino  will share with us how Yoga can bring us moment to moment bliss, joy and awareness as we  unite our mind, body and spirit.
In the show Marites talks about her path to Yoga and how she is helping others to discover it, too. She guides you in a short exercise, so have your mat ready!

About +Marites Florentino
MARITES FlorentinoMarites’  journey from the corporate world to the wellness industry started from the time she had her first ever foot and leg massage! With a very busy work life and a work-to-death attitude managing a team of professionals for 10 years, pampering herself was alien to her but when she did, her life was never the same.

In 2009, she started practicing yoga after being inspired in her first yoga retreat that year. After 3 years of personal practice and having benefited not just physically but more on mentally and emotionally, she decided to take it to the next level to teach yoga. February of 2012, she took a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Intensive Program with TRIBE Yoga to which she is very proud to be part of. She became a member of a tribe with wonderful, inspiring teachers and supportive, kindred yogamates. She had the best program which resonated to her personally and to her teaching style eventually. Immediately when the season started in the summer of 2012, she began teaching yoga classes and embarked on another mission of inspiring and touching the lives of her students and the people around her who have witnessed her own transformation.

Explore the Unseen Realities with Myste Lyn Anderson

Unseen Realities

What are the unseen realities? We will explore this in the 85th episode of Hangout on Connections. Unseen realities affect our life deeply, and when the spiritual aspect in life becomes important it is a good idea to discover what the unseen can provide for us. Myste Lyn is the go to expert on issues regarding Death and Dying, and that is a great help for for us who are still alive. Knowing more what the unseen can make a huge difference in anyone’s life. The fear of death would be lessened, or removed when we accept what the universe has in store for us. Join us on Thursday 24 September at 10 am EST.

And that’s exactly what our special guest for today is offering to you: Support in the challenges of the transitions in your life, when you find it hard to let go the previous period of your life and open up to a new chapter.

Love What you Do – How to create a lucrative Biz as a healer, spiritual adviser, artist, coach, or therapist with Margherita Crystal Lotus

Love what you doThe mission of most Healers and Intuitive facilitators see marketing and selling as a side activity.  This was me 25 years ago. I just do the work and people will come. That did not work, and if I did not have the background in the corporate world, I would probably not know what and how to operate and market my products and services. I  stated out my first modest Biz in the year 1991. Now 24th year later I am still here! In this episode #83 of Hangout on Connections, I will share my stories of tribulations and successes that brought me where I am today.

Dare to Play – Get more Effective and Heal your Grid! with Cindia Carrere, Intuitive for Entrepreneurs

Dare to Play and get more Effective by using the process: Heal your Grid!

Human Energy Field

Human Energy Field

What is play other than using our natural capacity for joy and enchantment. In this

episode #69 of Connections Forum, we will explore what play is and how to use it constructively for engaging in all activities of life including business and work. Healing is facilitated by play, and if a person is covered with dark emotions this is fatal in the long run. What play does is lifting our vibration, out of our internal acidity that always cause critical medical conditions such as cancer. On the other hand when you are alkalizing your body with laughter and fun, miracle healings can happen.

Our pH is around 7 and what is alkaline is above 7 and what is below is acidic. Margherita says: “As a biochemist student I studied how one can modify the pH by using buffers that keep a steady pH level. Certain vital processes need low or high pH value: for example the low pH in our stomach helps digestion, but if the stomach acids burn holes in the stomach due to prolonged stress, we have an acute situation”.

In our life situation we need to use other buffers such as a high frequency emotional mode, or in other words *an aligned energy grid*, to keep us healthy. Healing methods can be used to clear built-up negative energies, which makes a person stand in a different more positive state of mind. Listen in with our special guest Cindia Carrere below on May 28 at 10 am EDT.

What is Ki? Practical uses for Ki in everyday life with Markus Dieterle

energy-fields

Personal Energy Fields

Learn about Ki and how you use it in your daily life. Join us with Markus Dieterle a Kijutsu martial artist. He says: When I was studying in Karlsruhe, I did some additional learning in my free time in order to become more knowledgeable in additional topics outside of the ones I was studying. I wanted to learn some self-defense techniques and was attracted by some of the eastern martial arts. The university sports program had a few different martial arts offerings, and one of those was “Kijutsu”. The description sounded really interesting, so I signed up for a beginner’s course.

Training Kijutsu and learning how to use different aspects of “Ki” (or “chi”) for self-defence turned out to be one of the most interesting things I’ve done so far. Different exercises were used in order to not only train basic techniques, but also get a feel for and more experience in using “Ki”. Rather than just talking about more or less abstract concepts of Ki as a flow of energy that is really everywhere and can be tapped into and used in different ways, the training introduced me to very practically usable aspects of Ki, and the fact that they can also be used outside of self-defence situations, in everyday life.

In this HOA session Markus like to share some of his Ki experiences with you.

MarkusI was born and raised in the town of Wuppertal, a densely populated and mostly industrial town (which still has a lot of green park areas) in the middle of Western Germany. The town is known for its suspended railway (old, but still regularly used for daily public transport) as well as being the original home town of the Bayer chemical company – which a lot of people know as the inventor of Aspirin (I could list a few other points, but this isn’t a tourist guide J).

After finishing school, I moved to the city of Karlsruhe in southern Germany, in order to study informatics (computer sciences). After a while I switched to sensory systems engineering, which amongst other things incorporated computer sciences, mechanical and electrical engineering, physics, chemistry and simulation into a complex discipline of its own. The studies included two practical semesters for “on-the-job” training where we could put theory into practice. I wasn’t able to finish my studies due to some personal problems, but learned a lot from that nevertheless.

Back in Wuppertal, I went on to a part-time work as a layout assistant in a small local print company for a while, before becoming a programmer in another small company that focused on software and hardware for recording and computing medical service items in hospitals and doctors’ offices (both for record keeping and for billing purposes).

When the company was closed down by its owner despite still having several clients and a working business, I got the chance to finish my education by acquiring an official degree and title as an “Industriekaufmann” (industrial clerk/manager) from the chamber of commerce in Cologne, with an additional certification as a specialist for SAP systems. Getting this degree and title took me two years.

The new title and certificate landed me a job as an internal IT and SAP specialist in the accounting department of a young and dynamic mobile service provider, just at the time when the mobile phone marked really started to explode. The job was challenging, highly interesting and required a lot of flexibility as services and technology were evolving even more rapidly than in the PC and computing sector. I helped to optimize and expand internal processes, devised new database applications, and helped to optimize the usage of the internal SAP ERP system.

After around 5 years of doing this, I had the opportunity to switch over to the internal SAP team and become a dedicated SAP Basis specialist, and I took it. This job included system and application monitoring and administration, user and authorization management, interface development and a lot of related stuff. Over time, I centralized the user profile and authorization management for the SAP systems, developed and documented a new, more structured system for defining and managing new authorizations, implemented the new system, and added several new interfaces to our systems. In 2008 I changed to another company in a different sector where I still work right now, continuing in my role as SAP Basis specialist and ABAP programmer. During my spare time, I am working to slowly turn myself into an entrepreneur and author in the fields of problem solving and programming.

The Third Stroke – What Now? with Roland Takaoka (by Heidi Hornlein)

photoSometimes we are not aware that our life goes into the wrong direction – and then our bodies give us a warning. Most people hear it for a little while, and when they recover they take on the same life style they had before and what had led to the illness. Then our bodies need to give us harder hints – and when we survive we finally are inclined to change something, often forced by a changed life situation by missing physical functioning.

Well, Rolan Takaoka had 3 strokes which confined him to many months in hospital and finally to the wheelchair. And he has learnt his lesson. He has taken over  full responsabiliy for what has happened and has accepted his new life with acute curiosity of what is possible now – which leads him to ever new discoveries about the huge amount of possibilities of us humans which more often than not are ignored and not explored .

The third stroke – what now? with +Roland Takaoka 
Life changes drastically when you find yourself in completely different physical conditions. People after having had strokes might not be able to speak, to walk or whatever is compromising their usual and habitual way of using their body and their mind. There is rehabilitation and people can make huge progress, almost get back to “normal”. But it is not on auto pilot, it requires the active collaboration of the handicapped person – and, first of all, they need to have a specific mindset to succeed!
So when things like that happen to you: Would you despair and complain and be grumpy about the “curse” which has haunted you? Or would you use this condition as a starting point to change your life to the better? You can reach deeper levels of consciousness, you get  to know yourself better, your body, mind , soul, spirit – and you get to know how to interact in different ways with the people around you.

+Roland Takaoka
has used his experience of 3 strokes and has created a completely different life for himself and grounded himself in a wonderful positive mindset. In our show he will tell you the “secrets” of how to use an illness for growing and evolving in life

*Spring Clean Your Mind* – 3 Important Practices

Soul Star Light _1899

Spring Practice. Drawing by Margherita

The harsh extremes in weather this winter have been very hard on both emotions and physical vitality. In this episode of Connections Forum, Margherita will present three practices to prepare for the Spring Equinox.

First: on the physical level with some ideas about food and exercise. Secondly: dealing with the level of Emotions, and how they flow in our body, or block up our system. And, thirdly: entering the level of the conscious Mind, and our thought processes. Of course we also have higher spiritual levels and realities; we call that the Spiritual level.

Elemental Levels: Our physical, emotional and mental capacities are also varying in each of us. Some have excellent intellectual skills, but lack diplomacy and emotional sensitivity.  Others are social butterflies, but get inhibited by a scientific or logical discourse. Yet, others seem to integrate all these levels without hesitation.  These levels relate to the 5 natural elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space. According to ancient eastern traditions our reality is made up of the essence of these elements.  So doing certain practices for balancing each of our elements is very important for our health and to integrate it in life.
