  • The Secret of Energetic Exchange

    Have you ever lost that loving feeling?

    Ok, let me reword it a little better…

    Have you ever woken up one day only to realize that the certain special feeling you had for someone or something was just gone? 

    I’m about to age myself… but the Righteous Brothers used to sing a song exactly about it, and they got it right.

    I mean we’re talking a total disengagement as if the connection had just disappeared—almost like a David Copperfield magic trick.


    Kinda crazy, right?

    Well not really. It actually happens to a lot of people.

    For starters, it’s a fact that negative emotions and feelings build up in our psyches gradually and sometimes we don’t even recognize that it’s happening.

    Did you ever play the game ‘Don’t Break the Ice’ as a child? If you did, then you know what I’m talking about.

    The game’s premise is that eventually, the ice breaks when enough cracking and pressure is applied.

    Relationships, friendships, and connections are the same way—too many cracks and pressure….look out.

    All relationships are fragile and can begin to sour, like milk, for all sorts of reasons.

    But here’s the clincher, when we ignore the build-up (otherwise known as relationship plaque—BTW taking credit for coining the term), poorly communicate our feelings, and turn our heads to all the red flags– we are actually creating and adding to the little cracks.

    Then when you finally come to terms with dealing with the ‘plaque’—it’s too late, the connection feels too distant to save.

    “Danger, danger, run Will Robinson”.

    The law of “Energetic Exchange” is based on the idea that the amount of energy and time you put into any connection or relationship, is equal to what you get back from it.

    When that exchange is not equal, the connection for one or both people can easily be lost.

    There are 4 laws of energetic attraction:

    *We attract who we are

    *Intuition clarifies smart choices

    *Seeing the best in people magnetizes them

    *Soulful giving generates abundance

    Essentially, we all evolve at different paces. If you are spiritual, you will agree that the universe brings connections in and out of our lives as learning tools.

    In order for any connection to stay alive, it needs two people to be on the same page while putting in the same amount of energy towards each other—thus forming the ‘Energetic Exchange.

    We’ve all had a connection in our lives that all of a sudden just doesn’t feel right anymore. Where we wake up one day and realize we are just done with a friend, or lover or partner etc. We realize we have just had enough and have no more tolerance left.

    Ba and bye.

    I’m not saying to do this to be malicious; I’m saying it to be authentic. Sometimes the meter on that particular relationship has just expired—even if it’s just for that moment.

    Many times, connections are reconnected, when two people are in the same energetic place down the road.

    I’ve had many friendships go south (and I don’t mean to Florida) only to come back and thrive years later.

    Staying connected is not as simple as AT&T would like you to believe. It takes real effort and a willingness to be open and available to that special someone or something. It takes continual work and love in order to thrive. What we put into any connection is always what we get out of it.

    If we put in negativity and anger and malice into any relationship, we shouldn’t be shocked when it comes right back to us. It’s the Law of Energetic Attraction.

    Respect your intuitions about relationships and connections. Intuition is always right. 

    And always remember… some connections are meant for a season, others for a reason and for the lucky ones—an entire lifetime.

    Until Next time,

  • Soda makers facing diet pop lawsuit

    Data pulled from WXYZ

    (WXYZ) – The lawsuit states diet pop made six soft drink lovers gain weight instead of lose weight.

    They are claiming the sugar substitute aspartame interfered with how the body metabolizes calories. And they feel marketing the drinks as diet is not only false and misleading but unlawful as well.

    Diet sodas are less in calories but they have not been shown to promote weight loss.

    In fact, one study found people who had one or more artificially-sweetened drinks a day not only had higher risks for obesity, but also higher risks for type 2 diabetes, stroke, and heart disease.

    Diet pop is sweetened with either aspartame, saccharin, or sucralose. These sugar substitutes taste much sweeter than regular soda and this can actually dull your taste buds. You could end up craving more sugar and high-calorie foods which leads to weight gain.

    They may also trigger an insulin response which could throw your body into fat storage mode.

    Research is showing there’s a downside to diet soda yet people still see as a low-calorie alternative. So here are my prescriptions:

    1. Reduce your intake of sweetened beverages. If you’d like a calorie-free drink, choose water. Flavor it with fruit to make it tastier.
    2. If you must have a soda, treat yourself with a regular pop. But drink it occasionally as there’s very little nutritional value in these drinks.
    3. Check food labels to know exactly what you’re consuming. You can find sugar substitutes in other foods like yogurt, granola bars, and gum.
    4. When it comes to losing weight, you need to eat healthy and exercise. Opt for whole foods that are minimally processed and aim for 150 minutes of physical activity per week.

    Unless you’ve been diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called phenylketonuria, the FDA says nonnutritive sweeteners have been determined as safe for their intended uses.

    However if you have any adverse effects, they do recommend you report them through their reporting program called MedWatch.

  • Cinnamon: Pantry staple and medical powerhouse?

    Data pulled from WXYZ

    (WXYZ) – Who doesn’t love the taste or smell of cinnamon? But for centuries this popular spice has also been used for its medicinal qualities.

    Scientists have been studying cinnamon for its effects on several health issues.

    Research has shown it may help to lower blood glucose levels, improve cholesterol and could offer protection against dementia. It may also help with wound healing, lower blood pressure and could have cancer fighting properties.

    But the research is not conclusive and there are studies with conflicting results. So we can’t yet recommend cinnamon as a health aid.

    Cassia is the more common type of cinnamon and likely what you’re more familiar with as it’s found in most supermarkets.

    But Ceylon is known as the “true” cinnamon and may be the better option for good health. That’s because research found significant amounts of a plant compound in Cassia that can be harmful and may damage people’s liver if it’s consumed in high doses.

    Partha’s RX:

    1. Look for Ceylon cinnamon. If you can’t find it, use the Cassia variety in small amounts.
    2. Use between 1 and 6 grams, which is roughly a half-teaspoon to three teaspoons. Stick to a half teaspoon or less if using Cassia.
    3. If you have type 2 diabetes and want to try cinnamon, do a self-test. Check your blood levels before and after you eat, and three hours later to see if it’s had any impact.
    4. Never substitute cinnamon for prescription medicine. If you’re diabetic, talk to your doctor first before making cinnamon a habit. You don’t want blood sugar levels to be too low either.

    The research is still too early to decide if cinnamon supplements are safe for most people. I would recommend you stick to cooking with it or sprinkling it on drinks and foods.
