The most precious byproduct of the power of Positive Passion™ is that it builds a deep golden path of gratitude in our lives. Journeying on this voyage, a person is able to dive into the infinite gentle, nurturing pond of self love and self care, empowering the regulating dance of joyous gene expression, and inviting balanced health into one’s life on a cellular DNA level.

Some of the essential ingredients of manifesting the ultimate lifestyle of health and happiness include having an organic aptitude for gratitude, appreciation, pleasure, joy, and working towards our dreams.

8590750_origGratitude and appreciation go hand in hand. The more gratitude you have, the more you will have everything you want. The word gratitude comes from the Latin word gratia, meaning “favor” and gratis, meaning “pleasing.” It also means the three “G’s” – grace, graciousness, and gratefulness.

All connections from this Latin root embody kindness, generosity, gifts, and the beauty of giving and receiving. When we feel grateful, we radiate a light energy of gratefulness and graciousness, and we are moved to share the goodness we have received with others.

Gratitude has a positive energy. Positive energy is an expansive energy for health and wellbeing. With regards to epigenetics, imagine your body being a human petri dish. Now imagine each cell is like a miniature human being in your body and all of your cells are talking to each other. Now imagine all of your cells bathing in this light, healthy, and expansive energy of gratitude and talking to each other about feeling grateful for everything. Your body is having a “Gratitude Love Fest.” Now in this positively charged energy field that your cells are basking in, each negatively mutated cell of disease can be changed and turned into a healthy cell. Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. states in his book, The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, & Miracles, “Frontier science has proven positive thoughts have a profound effect on behavior and genes, but only when they are in harmony.”

thank-you-300x200Many people consider Robert A. Emmons, Ph.D. to be a leading authority on gratitude. He has researched gratitude for 10 years. In his book, Thanks!: How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier, he states, “People who practice gratitude tend to be more creative, bounce back more quickly from adversity, and have a stronger immune system. Practicing gratitude can increase happiness levels by around 25%.”

Living in gratitude encourages you to easily and effortlessly focus on what you want to achieve instead of what you are missing.

Gratitude is one of the most energetically forceful and supreme emotional tools that we can use in our lives to our advantage. It is the accelerated, stealth, graceful game changer for abundance, health, and happiness. In the realm of quantum physics, observing something actually influences the physical processes taking place. Being mindful with focused meditation on gratitude will allow you to resonate with it, meaning live it and be it, and, therefore, attract more into your life. Utilizing the Law of Cause and Effect, health attracts health. Happiness attracts happiness. Abundance attracts abundance. Love attracts love.

Emotion is energy in motion. Gratitude is the positive magnetic force that attracts to you what you want, love, and enjoy.

Neale Donald Walsch, the author of the Conversations with God series, said it best, “The struggle ends when gratitude begins.”

There is tremendous power in having a love affair with gratitude.

Summer’s here, and for most of us that means it’s time to head outdoors, breath the fresh air, soak up the sunshine, and savor the extra long days to recharge our body, mind and spirit.

There’s a magical quality about summertime that seems to instantly melt away the stress, boost our spirits and generally make life feel so good.

If you catch yourself laughing and smiling a little bit more than usual this season, you can thank the summer sunlight and the extra hours to soak it up each day for making you float through the day. Sunlight produces Vitamin D, known for its energizing effects, which we receive in abundance during the bright sunny summer days. The extra UV light also encourages our body’s natural production of serotonin, what scientists call the “happiness hormone”, while slowing down the production of melatonin, a hormone that leaves you feely sleepy and sluggish.

Let’s not forget that “school’s-out” feeling of summer that lingers through adulthood.

Not just for kids, we’ve all been conditioned to think of summer as a well deserved break from hard work and responsibility. Even though the work world continues year-round, research shows  that we instinctively feel more carefree and relaxed during summer– just like when we were young.

More than just a feeling, there’s now really good science to support why summertime is indeed the “feel good” season.

It turns out that it’s more than just sunshine and carefree days that make us feel happy in summer, and new studies now show us how to capture this feel-good quality all year long.

Most of us know that whenever we break away from our busy schedules, unplug from our high tech gadgets, and simply step outside of the comfort and confines of our homes, offices and city landscapes we seem to immediately shift our mood and feel more relaxed and refreshed.

Although we intrinsically seem to know that being in nature is good for us, new research is now discovering the scientific reason why we feed so good when we get outside—any time of year.

It called the “nature connection,” and science now shows that whether it’s a morning run at sunrise, strolling along the beach, or just inhaling the aroma of flowers in bloom, spending time in the outdoors actually makes us healthier –mentally and physically—from the inside out.

According to a recent study, the closer you live to nature, the healthier you’re likely to be. Researchers found that people who lived within 1 square mile of a park experienced much less anxiety and depression than those who lived farther away. In addition, simply spending time around trees is found to have a dramatic effect on overall health, reducing stress, improving mood, lowering blood pressure, as well as the stress-related stress-hormones cortisol and adrenaline.

Even if you live in an urban area, seeking out green space within the city still has a positive impact. A report in Social Science & Medicine  found that simply taking lunch break outdoors each day had a strong beneficial effect, proving that even those who live in the city can still reap the benefits of nature as well.

So get outside—not only in summer—but all year long. Leave your iPhone and other gadgets behind. Take a hike, meditate, do some outdoor yoga or just be still and be mindful. The more you go the more you’ll find activities in nature that resonate with your spirit and connect you with your source.

Remember your childhood dreams?

We all had childhood dreams. Maybe you wanted to be a doctor, teacher, lawyer or firefighter. Maybe you dreamt of something a bit less traditional like a painter, actor, inventor, or even an astronaut. Maybe you even saw yourself as a globetrotting Indiana Jones, unearthing ancient mysteries.

Maybe you still do.

Children are beautifully innocent. Too young to learn fear, doubt, or procrastination, they’re always dreaming. The free and magical brain of a child perceives the world as an endless array of unlimited possibilities.  They know what they want and they want it now. Everything is simple.

So what happens to all of those childhood dreams?

The same thing that always happens. Life.

In the blink of an eye we’re all grown up and our childhood dreams slowly fade away. We’re told to “stop daydreaming” by our teachers and to “be realistic” by our parents.  The Dreamer gives way to the Realist, as we pass through adulthood’s demanding rites of passage.

However, what if we could once again tap into the spirit of our childhood dreams and recapture the freedom of imagination to uncover and nurture our deepest desires?

It’s never too late to become what you might have been, and the world of science is perhaps the last place you’d think could get us there, but Quantum Physics is now paving the way. 

It’s called Quantum Creativity, and it just may be one of the most powerful visualization techniques used for personal growth and transformation.

Imagine, that somewhere out there in the deep vastness of space and time, there’s another version of you who didn’t give up on those childhood dreams. Imagine what you the Dreamer just might be doing. 

That’s where Quantum Creativity comes into play.

In the sometimes strange and ever fascinating workings of the subatomic realm, there is a new model of the universe that is emerging, one that suggests that reality may in fact be connected to consciousness itself, and that the world we experience is ever responsive to our thoughts, feelings, and emotions– quite literally molding to meet our expectations.

Some of our most brilliant thinkers suggest that we may be part of a giant cosmic hologram, projected quite literally from the edge of the universe. Or that we exist in an infinity of parallel worlds.

Just like the boundless creativity of a child, Quantum Creativity techniques teach us to harness the power of imagination to visualize our future selves, knowing that the future of who we are tomorrow is not determined by who we are today.  This is an important ally when we feel stuck on a path and full of uncertainty.

Now imagine if you will, that you could meet your Quantum Self, learn their ways, draw upon their skills, talent, experience and wisdom. Imagine you could actually feel and experience the life they are living.  Know their happiness, success and joy.

The late great philosopher Alan Watts once said, “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”                                                                                                                

Quantum Creativity is the perfect way to lead life’s pas de deux and not merely follow.

Remember the hardest part about changing paths and becoming someone new is cultivating the heartfelt belief that we actually can. 

And here’s the precious gift. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what you’ve previously experienced or suffered, or who you are today, the future is both created and negotiated.

Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul.

By Safe Passage Staff

The statistics surrounding domestic violence are sobering and staggering: One in three women, and one in four men will be physically abused by an intimate partner in their lifetime.[1] Every 9 seconds in the United States, a woman is assaulted or beaten.[2] Domestic violence accounts for 15% of all violent crime.[3] One local organization, Safe Passage, is on a mission to make a change.

In a hospital room in Marina del Rey in the spring of ‘85, a doctor stitched together a young woman’s MCface.  The doctor carefully operated on his patient, meticulously stitching up the gash on her face. After a long surgery, she was discharged and sent on her way to heal. The model, a young Trish Steele, never saw a bill for the doctor’s work, much to her dismay.

A silent hero, that doctor healed young Trish’s face, leaving a scar so virtually invisible no one would ever know what she had endured. “It was a miracle,” she says to this day. “I wish I knew this doctor’s name so I could thank him.”

Three decades later, and still a vision of beauty, Trish Steele has more than passed her miracle forward. Since then, she has dedicated her life to helping other victims of domestic violence and abuse. In 1992, she founded Women Crowned In Glory, Inc., which, in 2000, began doing business as Safe Passage, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Safe Passage helps heal victims of domestic violence by providing them with safety, medical care, shelter, dental care, counseling, job skills training, transportation, clothing, and, in many cases, a new, furnished place to live.

Tucked in an unassuming office in Van Nuys, Trish and her team of passionate volunteers tirelessly yolande-ngom-2work to bring an end to domestic violence. In 24 years of operation, Safe Passage has helped to heal over 1,700 lives. Safe Passage offers two avenues of help: connecting victims with resources that can bring them to immediate safety; and holding the hands of certain sufferers through an intensive course that transforms the victim to empowered, productive survivor.

Depending on grants and private donations, Safe Passage is relatively selective in their process, currently allowing only a few dozen women and their children into their established program per year. Having once been a victim herself, Trish understands the work it takes to reclaim one’s life. “We want to ensure that each client receives thorough, intensive help focused on their individual needs to lead them to a new, safe life,” says Trish. “Once they have gone through our program, they truly break free from the cycle of abuse.” The multi-faceted approach works; the transformation in these women’s lives has been undeniable. Safe Passage clients have gone on to open businesses, earn higher degrees, become public spokespersons, inspire and help others; and the benefits to their children follow suit.

Earlier this month, eight women graduated from Safe Passage’s coveted program. One woman, nelaffectionately known as “Lavender*” spoke of her experience: “I learned to talk. I learned to speak and to love myself again, because I was hating myself.” Lavender, who is now a CEO, has a nursing qualification, and was recently nominated for a Change Maker award in Washington, DC, attributes her new life to Safe Passage. “I accept who I am because of you, Trish.”

A key component in the success of Safe Passage’s program is the unique, compassionate counseling they provide to their clients. Linda Dolson, Safe Passage’s Program Director and in-house counselor, provides weekly sessions to the domestic violence victims that find themselves in the care of Safe Passage. Ms. Dolson’s unique blend of skills and certifications in traditional naturopathy, neuro-physical reprogramming (NPR) and homeopathy, effectively break the core of illnesses or emotional identities that present in many of her clients. Linda addresses the emotional and health concerns that many clients exhibit. She teaches them coping skills, restores self-esteem, and transforms their emotional lives to be whole once again. Most Safe Passage graduates hail Linda’s counseling as completely life changing. A recent graduate broke down in tears as she said: “Safe Passage saved my life. They were there for me when I had no one. I love Safe Passage so much and I really thank you for saving me.”

Christina*, another survivor that recently completed the Safe Passage program, was abused by her father and her mother from a young age. “I didn’t want to live when I was eleven,” she says. “I wanted a way out, even then.” She then went on to suffer through a violent marriage before she finally found an escape. “I was brought to Safe Passage… and it was the most amazing key that set me free on such a deep level.”

angelwingsMuch of the mission of Safe Passage, and many other organizations that focus on DV, is the notion that collectively, we can break the Cycle of Abuse. Sophie Turner, Safe Passage president, describes the cycle of abuse as a layered issue. “Generally, there is a cycle that may exhibit within an abusive relationship,” she says. “It starts with a calm stage. Issues begin to arise, and there is a tension-building phase where the victim begins to feel afraid. An explosive stage follows, involving physical, and often psychological or verbal violence, followed by a reconciliation phase, which includes apologies, excuses and forgiveness.”

These common cyclical patterns are one of the reasons why it is very difficult for many victims to leave their abusers. Many victims are frustrated by accusations that they should have, or could have, left sooner. “Why didn’t you just leave?” many are adjudged, or worse, “She stayed in it, she deserved it.”

In their work with domestic violence victims, Trish and Sophie have seen it all: Often an abuser will

avow to make a change; some shower their victim with love, gifts, and promises. Many abusers very convincingly claim they feel remorse. Some threaten harm to themselves, family members, children or pets if the victim ever left. Many abusers rationalize or try to blame the abuse on their victim, and many victims, already so deflated, abide.

The other layer of the Cycle of Abuse is in a generational context. “Exposure to domestic violence in a family context raises the probability that those exposed will grow to either tolerate, project, or even inflict domestic violence by or on others,” Sophie says. “We have seen clients come in with three or four generations of known domestic violence in the family past.” The devastating consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.[4] It’s an epidemic Safe Passage is dedicated to change.

Safe Passage takes a special approach not only to treating their adult clients, but also in providing lindasupplies and services for their clients’ children. Safe Passage provides counseling, group therapy, tutors, mentors and supplies to the little members of the Safe Passage family. Providing the child with a safe, loving environment away from any exposure to abuse is the first step, followed by work focused on healing the child so that they can recover with little or no psychological imprint of abuse.

Safe Passage has become known through Los Angeles not only for the incredible, life-changing work that they do, but for the exquisite fundraising events that they hold throughout the year. The high profile events held throughout Los Angeles have attracted support from politicians and celebrities including Mayor Garcetti and City Controller Ron Galperin, and domestic violence advocates Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Roma Downey and Taylor Armstrong.

Safe Passage has also attracted the volunteer help of some of Los Angeles’ top cosmetic surgeons and dentists. All too often, victims arrive in the care of Safe Passage with serious facial injuries caused by the abuse. Many need dental care to repair smiles broken through severe injury or trauma. As part of their program, Safe Passage provides women in need with the medical treatment necessary to repair the scars and help to restore their appearance to what it formerly was. Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour is one of the country’s top cosmetic surgeons and founder of the Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group. Dr. Fardad is a world-renowned physician and surgical inventor, and graciously lends his skill to Safe Passage.

Likewise, the extremely talented Dr. Bruce Vafa, DDS, of the Smile Angels of Beverly Hills clinic, offers

his skilled hand in masterfully helping to restore smiles that have been destroyed by domestic violence. Repairing the signs of physical damage inflicted on the victims is often a powerful first step in repairing the much deeper inner scars caused by domestic violence. The physical transformation is often what opens the door to a deeper, internal healing, and a new positive outlook on life.

One common misconception of domestic violence is that it affects only those with lower socio economic backgrounds. In reality, many domestic violence victims come from high income families. Many victims feel like prisoners in beautiful beach front mansions, waiting for the other shoe to drop. “Domestic violence does not discriminate,” Trish says. “It affects every race, every nationality, both genders, and victims present at all levels of economic wealth.”

Many victims from very comfortable backgrounds come to Safe Passage with absolutely nothing. Being able to finally escape the violence becomes so critical that many victims leave everything behind. Safety is paramount – victims are often lucky to escape with only their life and their children intact. Often domestic abusers isolate their victims from friends and family over time, control financial resources, and position their victim to be completely reliant on him or her to survive. Escalating the problem, many abusers financially dominate their victims, and the legal system is slow to respond. “We have seen women go from 10,000 square foot homes to a shelter, and I can assure you, they prefer being in that shelter,” Trish adds.

A recent law graduate with a master of laws, Sophie Turner knows the issue all too well. Sophie is a domestic abuse survivor and advocate, and speaks openly about her desire to effect change on a legal system that fails many DV victims. Smooth-talking abusers often gain the upper hand in a system that is heavily overburdened and favors those with the deepest pockets. Sophie’s experience has shown her that the system can be easily manipulated and cleverly strategized by high-powered attorneys, and children are often lost in the mix. “If it weren’t for organizations like Safe Passage, many victims would remain without an escape and without a voice,” Sophie explains.

Our most recent volunteer recruit is Veera Mahajan. She is very passionate about the work against Domestic Violence. She and her sons are also survivors. She was able to break the abuse cycle 8 years ago, when in the middle of the night, after one of the horrible days, she walked out of a 27000 sq. ft. house and told her abuser she had been thinking of leaving him for the last 14 years. She has never looked back. Now, she is the publisher of Malibu Chronicle magazine that focuses only on All Good News. She uses the magazine to give herself and others who have something good to share, a voice. She is a strong supporter of Safe Passage and is helping raise awareness of domestic abuse. She has also authored a book called UNREPORTED for the same purpose. She is a mediator and has offered to help Safe Passage clients when needed.

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and every year Safe Passage hosts a press conference to kick-start the month. Celebrities, local government, agencies and survivors gather to share their stories and raise awareness for the cause. The focus is on breaking the cycle of abuse, and leaders come together to speak about ways to implement change. President Obama takes the opportunity during National Domestic Violence Awareness Month to call on all Americans to speak out against domestic violence and support local efforts to assist victims of these crimes in finding the help and healing they need.
