A New Snow Moon in Leo

A New Snow Moon in Leo
I received an email attachment from my friend Sista Shai, the wonderful communicator for the New York chapter of The African Holistic Health Organization. The attachment was a message from Barbara Dominick about a lunar eclipse which took place Friday February 10th and Saturday February 11th. The message went on to say that the full moon in February is traditionally known as a snow moon because the month is often the coldest time of the year and when snowfall tends to be the heaviest.

What intrigued me about Dominick’s message was the unique fact that this snow moon lunar eclipse will take place in Leo. According to Dominick this celestial event will usher in a time for change and new beginnings; a shift of energy that will have a profound impact on people’s lives. You might of missed the opportunity to see this full moon eclipse but from an astrological perspective you will feel it’s effects for some time.

I recently interviewed numerologist Lloyd Strayhorn and astrologist Gale Armstead that both acknowledged that 2017 is a number one year; a time for new beginnings and a time of awakening. Barbara Dominick supported their predictions by saying “Eclipses are always times of powerful change and this one is highlighted by the fact that it occurs in Leo.

She goes on to say: “When the influential traits of Leo are combined with this new sense of purpose, expect a lot of people to finally take back control of their lives and futures. The noble and courageous leader that Leo embodies will be at the forefront of even the most timid person’s personality”.

After further research I discovered that another amazing phenomenon took place last Friday February 10th. Comet 45P which has been visible after sunset for the past two months through binoculars and telescopes, made its closest approach to Earth, only 7.4 million miles away at the same time of the lunar eclipse. This will add to the current reports of a universal bombardment of consciousness awareness energy from energy fields throughout our galaxy “The Milky Way”.

The snow moon eclipse in Leo will provide motivating energy for many to move towards actualizing a greater sense of creative expression a time for change and the planting of new seeds. Lloyd Strayhorn said that a number one year is the time to make strategies for the next nine year cycle. If what you are doing now is not what you want to be doing for the next nine years; this is the time to plant new seeds and create a new life strategy.

Astrologers believe that Leo is a generous and loving energy that will allow creativity to come from the heart to inspire lead and perform. Many reading this will understand why you are feeling this need to grow, create and improve your quality of life in a passionate way. 

Don’t fight the feeling this is your time; we are all being influenced by the energy generated by the eclipse of the snow moon in Leo; use it to change your life and the life of others.

Network Marketing 2017

Network Marketing 2017                    
When many people hear the term “network marketing” what comes to mind is a business where only a few at the top make money while the majority in the business will not. That is where the term pyramid comes from. Network marketing is not a pyramid scheme which is illegal.

Network marketing should not be mistaken for the old multilevel marketing systems that made you buy loads of merchandise to sell to friends and family; merchandise that still maybe in the closet or in storage.  Memories of those bad experiences are hard to forget, and I have a few myself.

Online marketing has changed the business model for network marketing throughout the world. The Internet has made network marketing a vehicle for financial freedom in the 21st century and beyond.When you combine a good network marketing system with the advantages of the internet you provide business opportunities for anyone no matter the sex, race, age, education or past business experiences.   

A good online marketing system can provide a person with no business or marketing background an opportunity  to build a local, national and in many cases an international customer base in a short period of time with the right product.

If you visit my blog at you will find that I have a similar article titled “Network Marketing” I wrote four years ago in 2013. I understood then the value of online marketing, I just could not find the right product and the right marketing system that worked for me; until a few weeks ago.

For the past three years, every spring I produce a community holistic health awareness campaign “Harlem Holistic Wellness Week” (HHWW).  This year’s HHWW community wellness awareness campaign will start on Saturday April 29th and the theme for this year’s wellness awareness week is “Discovering New Wellness Options for Women”. 

I encourage wellness organizations, practitioners and businesses to send me information relating to the weeks theme to be promoted.
I received information from an associate about a company named Nspire Network ( who will launch an online marketing product on March 4th.  A product that will improve the quality of life and in some cases, save the lives of thousands of women globally. This product will also help make a positive impact on the environment. 

The product is an organic bio-degradable sanitary napkin called “Cherish”. What will set Cherish apart from similar organic sanitary napkins is a patented all-natural negative ion strip. There is an article on my blog about the positive ways that negative ions affect our body or you can google negative ions/health benefits.

After a bit of research I was shocked to learn that many of the toxic chemicals, dyes and plastics used in the unregulated manufacturing  of  sanitary napkins (a  billion dollar industry) have been considered to be a possible foundation for many of the health issues that women face including; fibroids, urinary tract infection, hormonal imbalance and Toxic Shock Syndrome.

Nspire Network has developed an online awareness and education marketing program to complement their online business marketing model for a product that you or someone you know must purchase every month. It did not take me long to realize that the Nspire Network’s woman’s health awareness program was a good fit for this year’s HHWW holistic health awareness campaign. I also realized the business opportunity for this online marketing system.

Online network marking is a business model of the future, with the right product and the right system it can create a substantial residual income.  I invite you to join me in exploring this new business opportunity. There is a no cost pre-registration period between now and the March 4th American launch of “Cherish”. Individuals interested in getting a head start with this new business model should send an email to

The Healing Power of Your Smile

The Healing Power of Your Smile
All healing begins inside your body and we are blessed with a wonderful tool for healing “our smile”. When you smile hormones are released  creating a relaxing state of being. Even if you fake your smile endorphins will be released and your mood will change. Try it now fake a smile hold it for a few seconds and take note how you feel. If you are frighten or nervous a smile will allow you to calm down; sometimes this happens involuntarily.

Smiling allows the muscles in the face to send signals to the brain that all is well. The brain will then send relaxing signals along the body’s nervous system. After taking a hard blow to the head, a fighter will often smile to regain focus. When I give Ki Energy stress management treatments at our Ki Center; I often suggest for clients to smile while receiving the treatment. Smiling during meditation allows for an enhance sense of oneness; it can also be very Therapeutic.

The Inner Smile is an ancient Taoist healing technique that allows the healing power of a smile to give a person the ability to self-heal internally. Taoist master Mantak Chia explains this technique very well in the “Chi Nei Tsang” his internal organs Chi massage manual; when he writes: “The Inner Smile is a powerful relaxation technique which begins at mid-eyebrow and eyes. It utilizes the expanding energy of happiness as a language to communicate with the internal organs of the body”.

Master Chia goes on to say: “By learning to smile inwardly to the organs and glands, the body will feel loved and appreciated”. At the Ki Center we teach a Korean Qigong exercise called Heaven and Earth. The technique allows the student to focus on internal healing by visualizing and smiling at all of the internal organs in the body.

If you have an injury or soreness on any part of your body, focus on that area and smile at it. If you continue to do this, you will assist in your internal healing process. As many of you know, I have first had experience on the healing power of smiling at internal injuries; it worked for me. We might not realize the healing power of our smile but it is very real it works and it is very easy to do.

Smiling can also be contagious, if you smile at someone long enough they will smile back sometimes unknowingly. The smile can not only be used as a tool for self-healing, it can also be used as a tool to heal others. A smile can be very helpful in changing the mood of another.

One should also be aware that not all smiling faces have a foundation of love. Sometimes a smile can be used to manipulate. More often than not the energy of a smile can be healing. The next time you feel a need to change your mood smile; even if you feel you have nothing to smile about. The healing power of your smile is very powerful learn to use it to improve the quality of your life.

Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2017

 The 2017 Harlem Holistic Wellness Week (HHWW) Celebration will focus  on holistic health and wellness options for woman. The event will bring awareness to the many natural and holistic options that can address health and the improvement of the quality of life. Due to the many questions surrounding health care, a number of people of all ages are looking for natural ways to maintain health and wellness. The Theme of this year’s wellness week is “Discovering Wellness Options for Women: Now You Know”.

HHWW always begins on the last Saturday in April to coincide with World Tai Chi Day an international wellness movement where thousands of people in cities throughout the world start practicing breathing and energy movement exercises at the same time in relationship to the time zone in each country. During the wellness exercises and programs on that day the meditative focus is on universal awareness of wellness and world peace.

Research has shown that when large numbers of people focus on the same concept around the same time, the possibility of the manifestation of that concept into reality is greatly increased. On every last Saturday in April the universal energy of wellness and world peace is very strong and continues to develop each year as the collective consciousness concerning health and wellness grows on that day.

The universal mental energy of wellness provides a spiritual foundation for the annual start of the week-long holistic wellness awareness campaign that takes place in Harlem the most well-known urban community in the world.  Saturday April 29th is the starting date for HHWW 2017.

The Harlem Community News and WHCR 90.3FM/  will be the lead media partners for this year’s week-long wellness celebration promoting the wellness events and the participating organizations, businesses and practitioners who provide holistic wellness options for individuals seeking a holistic approach to health and well-being.

Negative Ions Wellness Gifts from Heaven

Negative Ions Wellness Gifts from Heaven
Negative ions are oxygen atoms with an extra electron charge. Negative ions are created in sunlight, running water and by the radiation of the earth. When the warm running water in your shower creates steam it is also creating Negative ions. High concentrations of Negative ions can be found near beaches, waterfalls, by strong winds and rapidly running water in mountain streams.

The feeling of relaxation you get at a beach, a waterfall or after a nice hot shower; comes from your body being exposed to large amounts of Negative ions. Research has shown that Negative ions can positively affect moods, pain management, body temperature, focus and attention. Research also shows that Negative ions can relieve feelings of depression, stress and anxiety.

There is a growing market for machines that can produce Negative ions. Ionizers will soon be used in hospitals and many other public spaces because Negative ions can kill airborne, germs, bacteria, smells and dust. This happens when they attached themselves to positively charged ion particles in large numbers. The germs, pollen, mold and other allergens become too heavy to remain airborne and drop to the floor.

The Positive ions are the bad guys and are all around use. Electrical equipment, televisions, computers, cell phones, air conditioning, clothes dryers and inner city pollution gives use high exposures of Positive ions. That is why the market is growing for ionizers. You can by a $20.00 ionbox desk ionizer on Amazon to clear Positive ions from your workspace. Larger ionizers can be helpful in other parts of the house to decrease airborne viruses and bacteria.

In 1956 Japanese researchers developed a high tech fiber called Teviron; a fiber that could create Negative Ions. This discovery was the beginning of a phase of negative ion technology that focused on the development of clothing that could generate negative ions through movement. Both the military and the athletic industry have been exploring methods to produce clothing that generate Negative Ions for the improvement of performance, health and overall well-being. There are a few brands of active wear that use Negative Ions technology but you have to do your research on Negative Ion products and remember that all that glitters is not gold. 

April 29th to May 6th are the dates for the Fourth Annual Harlem Holistic Wellness Week. The theme this year’s wellness week is “Discovering Wellness Options for Women”.  I am currently researching an exciting new natural wellness product that will use Negative Ion technology to provide health and well-being for women. I plan to introduce the product during this year’s wellness week; I will keep you updated.
