BRA Resolution | SOMA

December 2009


Well it’s that time of year again to make a resolution to improve something. From weight loss, to saving money, to spending time meditating, we have all run the gamut on topics. This year I encourage everyone to stand up and resolve to do something daring: get a BRA!

No, no, no! I do not mean that men have to go from being straight to becoming cross dressers. Nor should we women necessarily go from its cold down there to cold out there (only women will get this one). I am saying BRA as an acronym: Best friend, Reality check, and Awareness of a higher power.

Studies have shown time and again that one of the reasons women fare better during hard times is our friend network. My grandma had a saying: “friends double our joy and divide our grief”. And while it sounds so simple… how many friends do you really have?? Try going thru a life altering event and you will watch your buddies disappear like cockroaches when the light is turned on. Being a true friend takes energy and it takes time. To have one, you gotta be one! When is the last time you called your friend on her birthday? Or remembered when her parents died?? Or just sent a card to your friend for the sheer joy of putting a stamp on an envelope? I am blessed with a couple friends and my longest standing and truest friend is Shelley back home in Michigan. We have known each other since high school, working together as kids at Dairy Queen and later at AirMatic in Southfield, MI. Life took its twists and turns, but when my folks died she was right there as if we had never separated. She knew what they meant to me, and she helped piece me together to do each of their eulogies. For that I am ever grateful. Bottom line: want to live a longer healthier life? Save the money on the gym, walk more and invest in having/being a true friend.

Let’s switch gears to reality checks. What do I mean by a reality check? I define a reality check as a situation or circumstance that comes about in life that causes one to take inventory of all of their blessings and/or that causes one to become humble. The roots of greatness grow strongest in humble soil. When we are humble we are open to the Divine wisdom ever present all around us. We are grateful for the smallest of things like hearing the birds sing. We realize that prosperity is not just the ability to pay for a Wii game system with cash. We start to define prosperity in different ways: health, friends, happiness, as well as cash. On the contrary, when we are arrogant we think that we are the epitome of all anyone could ever hope to be, leaving our selves doomed to failure as we have cut off our true source of power – the Divine. Want a reality check? Walk in an ER and see the accident victims. Not one of those people woke up that day saying “hey, I wonder what it would be like to sail thru the air at 60 mph for 100 yards off the back of a motorcycle?” Or if ERs nauseate you, drive to the poor side of town and you’ll realize that not everyone is there by choice. Some lost their jobs. Some had a devastating illness in the family, and they lost every last nickel keeping dad alive. The next time you feel like you are getting “too big for your britches”, take a breath and remember to do the R of BRA – reality check. May your pants always fit you “just right”.

Finally we come to “A”, the alpha, aleph, the awareness of a higher power. Western medicine is just beginning to glean the import of faith in medicine. We are multidimensional beings: spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical. Feces rolls down hill! When we are not right in either of the first three levels we will manifest disease in the body. People on prayer lists do better than those who are not. This factoid has been published time and again in multiple medical journals.

When asked most people have some faith in a higher power. But wait! I can see the eyes roll of the atheists! How can we believe in something that we have never seen? Well! Has anyone ever seen gravity?? NO. But we know in the morning that our feet will stay firmly to the ground because of it. More importantly how can one deny the existence of God/Spirit/Divine Intelligence? Look at the miracle of birth! Despite the burgeoning population, the fact that the sperm made it to the egg on time, the two connected, the cell blob divided properly, and that it stuck to the uterus for 9 months – that’s a miracle in and of itself. Let alone the short jaunt down the birth canal! I know – I have two kids and I used to deliver babies as part of my practice. Birth is truly a miracle when one considers the odds against it.

Jumping into the microcosm, consider the double helix of DNA. There is no way this popped out of a boiling soup kitchen at the dawn of time. If that is the case there’s something waiting to birth from beneath my son’s bed!! Two strands of four base pairs lined up in different configurations – that’s all there is to the code of life. For everything!! That is incredible!! Wow!!

And now lets look up to the macrocosm. All of those stars swirling around one another and galaxies beyond orbiting around the galactic center. This all portends of an order that has been established. Left to its own accord physics says everything is moving to entropy or disorder. And objects in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Ladies and gentlemen it is my argument that this outside force is the Divine. I believe that it is the Divine that keeps the Universe as we know it from succumbing to the law of entropy. Call it Buddha, Krishna, Jesus, Allah – the “Truth is one, many are the names” – Sadguru Sant Keshavadas. So I invite you this new year to get to know the Divine on your own terms. You just might find the best friend you could ever have!

Back it up Gloria Steinem!! We are putting our BRAs back on!!

Shanti and prem (Divine love and peace),

Go to the GYM | SOMA

Boyfriend/ girlfriend showing their ass? Coworkers being turds? Life upside down to you? Go to the GYM. It’s an acronym. God, Youth, Mental.

Mars in Cancer (Reel) | SOMA

Life is a balance. Be the solution to someone’s problem. To survive we must learn to swim together.

Level Up Your Vibration | SOMA

Don’t get stuck in your stuff… Call out to the Universe for help and guidance and be open to it! Writing it down helps manifestation. Level up your vibration to draw it in.


We are coming up on the Autumn Equinox and Pagan holiday of Mabon, the time of year when the time of day and night is equal. In reflection, healthcare has changed drastically the last 2 1/2 years. It’s time for people to step up and start taking care of themselves.

This is for you, Daddy | SOMA

Laughter truly heals. Thoughts are chemical messages that cross the blood brain barrier, allowing for consequences of one’s celebrations. Breaking the word “laugh” down shows how it works metaphysically. Loving All Unconditionally Gives Healing. As a solution to blocks in love there are Mantras to help change the energy from one form to another.

Om is Where the Love is | SOMA

We know stress kills. Experiments with DNA, our blueprint for life, shows that DNA curls or unfurls in response to our emotions of stress vs. being at peace. Some grid of energy must exist within and around us. We must set ego aside and operate from own divine selves. This can be done through mantras.

Dr. Zen Jen is Now In | SOMA

With all the hubbub about socialized medicine I offer my concerns/advice. Emphasis is being placed on personal responsibility regarding health habits when it comes to obesity. Genetics, home environment, and MSG are tops in this multifactorial problem. To survive this healthcare challenge: only eat when hungry, exercise, avoid MSG/HFCS, rest, and read/do something spiritual daily.

Ramblings on a Warm Summer Eve | SOMA

How many freedoms have we relinquished in favor of big government? Many are jumping on board the proposed overhaul of our health care system without thought of what all it entails. No one wants our healthcare all government run. Physicians can only coach health and lifestyle adjustments. Patients need to take personal responsibility for themselves.

Swine Flu | SOMA

Swine/H1N1 flu: government hype or real concern? Through DISR, one is trained to dig for the original/root cause of the dis-ease and I can see thoughtforms/actions that helped make this disease manifest. All animal Totems have positive and negative qualities. Where in your life are you fat and sloppy? Honor the temple/body God granted you.

You Call it Easter, I Call it Ostara | SOMA

How do bunnies and eggs relate to the resurrection of The Christ? Pre-Christian movement, pagan tribes worshipped the land and the Gods/Goddesses for health, wealth, good crops, and happiness. To win the minds of these tribes the Church needed to demonstrate similarities between the native ideology and the one that they were trying to assimilate.

You are the Tower of Power Needed This Hour | SOMA

Eclipses are times of change represented by the two astrological signs involved. Aquarius/Leo represents what’s good for many versus what’s good for me. This eclipse asks us to examine how we can think outside of ourselves and be of true service. Leo is self-love and self-import. Aquarius is about the highest/greatest good for all.

What is Divine Intervention Spontaneous Remission? | SOMA

Divine Intervention Spontaneous Healing (DISR/DI) is an energy healing modality used by the ancient Mayans, and still used by the Curanderos in Central America, brought to the US by Starr Fuentes who studied with them for three years. If you are familiar with Reiki, DI is more intense, consisting of 144 healing rays vs. 1.

Taking the Old Out of Auld Lang Syne | SOMA

Another year older and wiser, we gather and review the year’s events with family and friends. Let’s focus on ways to slow down “the clock”. Inflammation increases one’s risk for cancer and infection. Supplements such as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy, Thyroid Replacement Therapy, DHEA, EPA/DHA, Resveratrol, and Vitamin D3, along with exercise can help.

Sir, is that a fly in my soup? | SOMA

Texas sure has a lot of bugs. Every year once critter or another has a bumper crop. This year, it is fleas, which represent dead energy. It’s interesting this comes at the time of Halloween or Samhain, a time to honor the dead. Associations with astrological signs Scorpio and Pisces deals with death/transformation and procreation/creation.

Take in a Deep Breath and Relax | SOMA

While Mercury is in retrograde, causing mayhem in the world of communication, energy work can still be done to mitigate its affects. It’s a time to review and revamp. Utilizing prayer and mantras you can sooth unbalanced thought forms and work with the energies to manifest your desires with the help of Laksmi and Ganesh.

What the Heck is Goin On Here? | SOMA

Typical after an eclipse, and we just endured two, a lot of “stuff” is going on in the world lately. First (solar) eclipse was in the astrological constellation of Leo and focuses upon self-worth. You are worthy! Second (lunar) eclipse was in Aquarius and focuses upon revolution – group consciousness, awareness, and achievement of Utopia.

The Attitude of Gratitude | SOMA

We create our own reality by choosing our focus. Dwell on negativity and that is what you will attract. Quit being a victim of your thoughts. Change your thoughtforms. See what is right with your life. Watch how your life transforms as you take control, empower yourself. Love yourself enough to soar with the eagles.
