PICKS OF THE DAY:
# 1 – For a limited time Scott Sonnon, World Martial Arts Champion, Master of Sport, and USA National Team Coach, is offering a free video download and 19-page report on Resilience Breathing as a way of introducing people to his new Primal Stress program. I just got through reading the report and was fascinated with all the information. But it’s not just about the breath and breathing; there’s also a philosophical and self-awareness component that is woven into Scott’s report. For example…
“I had the courage to attack imposed limitations, but not the confidence that they were false. After decades of reactionary achievement, the evidence had proven that the limitations were illusions. So, with that confidence, it was time to stop defining myself by overcoming what I was told I wasn’t and start exploring what I could not yet imagine I was.
Having the courage to overcome perceived limitations is the first step, but it cannot be the final for it is essentially an oppositional advance. To truly reframe your potential, you must avoid defining yourself as merely capable of what others say you aren’t. And move on to defining your potential by what you have not yet imagined you are. You are so much more than beyond the limits others perceive you to have. You are beyond what you can currently imagine.”
And here are some testimonials for Scott’s Primal Stress program…
“Primal Stress is hands-down, the single-best bodyweight training program available today, and I’ve tried almost all of them!”~ John Sifferman,Professional Online Fitness Reviewer
“This is now my #1 recommendation. Condensed joint mobility, power core workout, metabolic waving protocols in bodyweight, and compensatory yoga that flows. It is the TOTAL PACKAGE! The massive knowledge base on stress response and psychological performance = Magnum opus!” ~ Daniel Market

# 2 – I think the regular replay of Gregg Braden on Soul Surge Intensive has expired, but host Shifra Hendrie has mentioned that some presentations will be re-posted. I’m hoping Braden’s interview falls into that category because it’s something I think everyone should listen to. If you haven’t signed up for the Soul Surge series, then get on board asap so you won’t miss the possibility of catching Braden’s call, as well as those of Dr. Dain Heer, Rikka Zimmerman, Kaitlyn Keyt, and others.
TIP FOR TODAY:
Here’s the latest astrological update from astrograph.com…
This Last Quarter Moon, traditionally a time of reassessment and reevaluation, is accompanied as well this month by Mercury stationing to direct motion on the previous day. This brings us to a much more internal place than usual, where we can take the opportunity of thinking over where we are heading and where we have been. Mercury‘s change of direction is welcome, and implies that we are definitely more focused and externally oriented, but there are still strong symptoms present of the somewhat difficult Mercury Retrograde period, gradually lessoning, that will continue hanging around for the next two weeks.
As Mercury stations, and for the next few days, Mercury strongly aspectsNeptune, symbolizing an increase in the level of both confusion and also incipient spirituality present in our lives right now. Neptune, strongly placed near the beginning of its own sign of Pisces, represents numinous other-dimensional realms that are essentially beyond logical understanding, better expressed by music and poetry. We all partake of a dual nature that includes, as Jung documented, the deep and vast unconscious process below and beyond the level of consciousness that taps into myth and long-lost ancestry, and that underlies, even though we might not be fully aware of it, everything that we think and do.
This powerful Neptune factor makes this a particularly good time to meditate, or to relax by taking in nature, or by simply being. As we indwell on our relationship to the cosmos, we could find that some of the answers we are feverishly seeking in our busy lives might appear to us, welling up from our interior depths as if by magic.
Interestingly, Venus is now in Cancer, sign of nurturing, and is in trine with Neptune. Venus also opposes Pluto, an intense condition that could bring up all kinds of relationship issues. This gets stronger over the next week leading up to the mid-month New Moon. As we mull over the well-springs of our behavior and where our lives are actually heading, we are therefore in the midst of a thoughtful episode of relationship activity that while it has its overly idealized and even confusing moments, is nonetheless a life-changing ongoing study and reevaluation of how we do relationship with significant partners, and indeed with ourselves.
And a little Abraham for good measure :-)…
“Your Inner Being likes to skip and laugh and think about things; your Inner Being likes to offer compliments and feel appreciation and contemplate something that is not fully understood and then feel the understanding come forth. Your Inner Being is just like your frisky two-year old who is eager for life experience. To meet up with your Inner Being just be more like that now.”
