November 8, 2010 (8th day/11th month/10th year of 2000) is the official OK COACH! launch of Wholy Shift! Glow with da Flow LifeStyle. Listen to this Uncut Random Recording as I share about this day and its meaning for venturing out to the Unknown, where da Real Freedom lies…question is, Are You Ready to Awaken to the Miracles that are Everywhere?
(be patient as the player loads or you can open the mp3 directly here: Infinite Oneday.)
Ever wonder why certain people come into your life serendipitously to bring about a Wholy Shift! of healing or inspiration. Well, Dr. Rob Rostau is one of those shiny examples. Watch this 5th episode of W.S?! GwdF Show as I interview Dr. Rob at his chiropractic practice near Parker Ranch of Waimea, on the Big Island of Hawaii.
After 31 years, I finally reconnect with my Greek father and the Anogianakis family?! It’s a long story and one day it may be told, but for now, it’s about Love, Healing and Elation.
Recently, the Hollywood version of the book, Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert was released in theaters. I highly recommend reading the book from cover to cover as it captures the essence of following, living and loving yourSelf from the Heart. Here’s a trailer clip with Julia Roberts as the lead. It’s based on a true story about a woman who takes a year off from the grind of chaos by traveling to Italy, India & Bali to discover who she really is.
Sometimes, it takes removing yourself out of familiar environments to reveal your truest essence. The Universe is telling you “Loud and Clear” that it’s time for a change. This requires stretching past comfort zones and even intentionally placing yourself in uncomfortable situations. Such life emergencies bring about an emergence of the soul even when you had collapse from so-called “failure.” Nothing you aim for is ever in vain. There is light at the end of every tunnel.
I got the idea for this blog post from the movie, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, coincidentally was filmed partly in Greece.
Experience a new culture, language, custom, philosophy, religion, food, geographic, etc. to learn and grow. Become more aware of other ways of Being. Be touched by unique expression all over the world and develop a newlywed everlasting appreciation & compassion for yourself and for other sentient beings.
Even if you don’t have the means to travel far yet, just get off the couch and go outside into nature or to the next town. Meet new people. Read new books. Just get out of the house or limiting environments for Wholy Sake!!! Turn off your T.V. & Computers and Wholy Stretch! into inner Nature – the Stillness within – even if you have a limited budget or live in poverty. There are no excuses to not Breathe and Go Deep! View Life from the Grand Perspective and the various levels in between. Even your neurons and genes will transform and “metamorph” as you become a newer You. 😉
Only the Open Mind can experience it all. Expand your mind by following da Signs; what you knew of your limited self with be blown away. Make known the unknown by having a pioneering Spirit.
We are at an Aware Age where holding on to the weight of the past and being burden by it, is no longer necessary. We are educated and wise enough to know that holding “emotional baggage” and being limited by its density does not serve our Well-Being. With the advent of social media technology and even the amazing the TELEPHONE (HELLO!), you can reach out, touch and be at peace with those that you had a falling out or shared conflict with. If you don’t find them, forgive them energetically. Most importantly, Forgive Yourself because the “old you” didn’t know better. 🙂 Then, you’ll be free beyond “means!” 😉
There’s an endless debate whether we ARE because of Nature or Nurture. It’s like the Chicken and the Egg scenario. Honestly, it’s ALL the SAME. Whether it’s the Genome or the Unified Field expressing through us as Human Beings, it’s all hearsay until one has a Total Direct Subjective Experience of the Truth. The acceptance of what is, IS THE REAL NAME OF THE GAME.
Travel and go find out for yourSelf, Kiddo… 🙂

My latest adventure brings me to lovely Horseshoe Bay of West Vancouver, British Columbia to interview Ryan Yokome, a Rising Sun of an Entrepreneur/Internet Marketer & Consultant, who is blazing a whole new field of Empowered, Heart-Center Business Enterprises and Practices for the global marketplace.
I met Ryan randomly a few months ago online surfing through the Twitter social media networking site. I don’t know why but something told me to reach out to this guy out of the thousands of online marketers out there. An added bonus was he was a neighbor in the greater Vancouver area. After our initial phone conversation, we met for the first time HERE.
It was a meeting that forged an awesome connection. For some crazy cool reason, when we hang out, da Flow Zone kicks in as we move into Creative Glow-Mode Hyperdrive. Everything around us slooooows down, revealing its inexplicable Essence. The vibes are surreal and what comes through us is witnessed with absolute awe and gratitude. We lose our minds, all sense of time and cannot help watching our egos crack up with laughter into tiny bits from da Glide of Life. 😉
Enjoy da Show including Ryan’s very own show: TuneAVision
If you want to take your business to the Upper Stratospheric Echelon, give Ryan Yo. & Co. a shout! I have no doubt he can guide you to Real Success.

Ahhhh (sigh), The City of St. Francis of Assisi – San Francisco – what a charming place named after a Saint who epitomizes Forgiveness.
Growing up in San Francisco, I naturally have a lot of fond and formerly, not so fond memories. When I say formerly, I had made peace with the past, am now facing the present and very much, look forward to the future. The City by the Bay gives me the maximum opportunities to heal the past when exposed to family, friends and environmental interactions.
Forgiveness comes from burning karma with the fire of unconditional loving Awareness. The feeling of salvation that arises from letting go of s#it brings about a transformative shift from the revelation of Omnipresence. Even billionaire Warren Buffet recognizes the power of Unconditional Love in his life.
Spiritual work is not for the faint of heart. Many people are content floating along life in the unconscious holding pattern of automatic pilot mode. Whereas spiritual seekers are courageously willing and ready to grow, despite the pain and suffering, to look in the mirror, grab the wheel of life and go pedal to the metal. They know that dissolving illusory ill-lose-sory negative karma always reveal the Win-Winning Positive. With experience, comes the knowingness, confidence and trust to declare, “Bring it on!” With Divine Guidance, we can overcome all negative karma and generate equity, assets & abundant flow in our positive karmic bank account to draw upon whenever necessary.
Total healing is realized when old memories and fears that surface are healed while giving way to Humor. The personal threshold of suffering is expanded with absolute acceptance for the way the world is. All past experiences are contextually reframed from continual non-attachment, allowing the density of the ego to be lifted by the Wings of Grace.
As with any skill, forgiveness and the burning of negative karma improves with the practice of each testing encounter. These tests are challenging opportunities to exorcise all old demons and closet skeletons with Angel Intervention. See your life as releasing the proverbial onion peels – that releasing each one, regains the spiritual core of Existence.
My spiritual teacher points out that when you burn enough negative karma, you reach a point where you are above it – this is akin to taking flight above the clouds to reveal the sunny Heaven within…that is, until the next set of dusky karma descends, ready to be faced and healed with Love and Light.
So, see the pain of the past and the fear of the future as the doorway into Enlightenment. Say “Thank you, Lord, for bringing up that which needs to be healed so that I can know that I AM always, Whole ‘n’ One.”
That is true Salvation. 😉
Maui has been love at first sight ever since soaring above her clouds and touching her soil nearly 13 years ago. I had my first of two ever anxiety attacks in my life when I left her the first time after a 10-day immersion with da magical Aina (means “land” in Hawaiian) before boarding the plane to fly back to San Francisco. This was pre-9/11 when relatives and friends could walk you to the gate to say goodbye. Before hopping the plane, my hands and then my body began to shake. I asked my buddy, “What’s happenin’ to me?” He calmly replied, “Tone, now you know why I stayed.”
“Like, Whoa!” His statement hit me like a ton of coconuts. I instantly remembered and realized what Love truly IS ~ like the energy of a Divine motherly embrace. I felt the Aloha Spirit! The same thing happened to me when meeting my wife for the very first time in Canada and proposing to her only two months afterward while nearly passing out in a cold sweat. Both her and Maui never judged me for being afraid. They both wholeheartedly and unconditionally took me into their loving arms.
It is the things in life that scares us the most that we must go for if we truly want to live and be free. Unfortunately and fortunately, one eventually realizes the paradox between fear/fearlessness after Wholy Stretching! enough times. You recognize that the old definition of fear was mislabeled. The perceived emotional feeling of the word “fear” is actually an energy of Aliveness.
This energy has now become meaningful and significant as it is recontextualize and transmuted into Courage & Love to guide and direct your life toward the total fulfillment of your potential. What used to be the painful past is now laughed at as a hilarious comedy. You are no longer that same person that once identified with the negativity toward an unfavorable situation.
With a knowingness and trust, you embrace all challenges as an opportunity to stretch toward positive growth. You are grateful for the TEST – “Am I going to unconsciously and naively react to this situation with force? Or…because I seen this same movie played out enough times, I now have the wisdom to instead choose to lovingly respond with Power!“
No matter which river you decide to flow through, eventually it will all merge back into the Almighty Ocean. You can, however, decide how fast you want to accelerate the process by Wholy Stretching within. The growing pains you’re feeling are angel wings emerging from your back. 😉

Being in the presence of an enlightened teacher is inexplicable. Words cannot adequately explain this transcendent experience. I highly suggest you find out for yourself. 😉
Although it was my third time seeing Dr. David Hawkins speak, it was the first time I personally asked him a question. The prior two events, I was five people away from the stage when they decided to conclude the event. Aw Shucks! Third time’s a charm, right?
The funny thing is that since the reintroduction of Hawkins’ spiritual work in my life last year, whatever questions I did have about life would spontaneously be answered on their own.
Speaking to a lady I met at the June 9, 2010 satsang event near Sedona, I told her my dilemma. She told me that she would hold it in her silent intention that I would ask a question that would benefit the entire audience.
So, my opportunity finally arose to step on the stage and instantly, I was transported into da Zone. It felt like I was floating toward the table where he was sitting like little Yoda with his wife, Susan. I walked toward the table oblivious of the audience, fixed upon his unwavering unconditional loving eyes. I glanced down briefly but the pull of his loving eyes were so magnetic. As I sat down, I realized the questions I had in mind were lost as it went blank and I giggled in the Presence.
With the camera rolling, the anticipation of audience on the left and a brief pause, a question slowly arose from the depth of my heart and blossomed through the mic. The question was: “Being a former athlete, I had experienced the Zone numerous times where everything was unfolding effortlessly on its own. Would you say that enlightenment is a permanent state of the Zone?”
Dr. Hawkins’ response: “Ah yes, they have their similarities. Um hmm. (pause)…When I was a young man working at a factory during World War II, I lifted heavy wooden crates for hours, um hmm…All the sudden, the crates felt like feathers?! I observed myself performing the act all on its own as I worked tirelessly without fatigue.”
I sat across from him transfixed with awe of the rainbow twinkles radiating from his eyes. We sat in momentary silence – what felt like the infinite peace of eternity – although only a few seconds had elapsed. We nodded to each other as I thank him and his wife.
As I was exiting the stage, Doc Hawk asked the audience if they had experienced such a state in their lives. Almost the entire audience had raised their hands. During the intermission, while speaking to the lady that held the intention for me, a gentleman asked me what sport I played. I told him that I played ice hockey and surfed mainly. He thanked me for asking the question because he, too, had experienced the Zone but never made the connection to enlightenment until then. He was looking forward to experiencing more of this Flow of Grace in the future. I’m sure he was speaking for all of us. 🙂
May humanity become anchored in the autonomous Joy, Peace and Wholeness that we already are, more frequently and eventually, permanently in this lifetime. Amen.
