The Missing Link to Healing & Manifestation
with Alice McCall

Do you find yourself in the same situation, experiencing the same emotions?  Have you struggled with creating abundance in your life?  Does your health impede the life you want?

If this sounds similar to events in your life, the cause may be rooted to the unconscious - what you are holding within yourself.  Join Alice McCall for insights on how to identify and rid yourself of what may be limiting you behind the scenes, controlling your life.  Once you learn to recognize and release these patterns or thoughts, it opens you up to new experiences and personal growth! 

This presentation will also explore the role your thoughts and emotions have on your health, well-being, and your ability to manifest and live an abundant life.

Your mind is a powerful creative force; it can work for you or against you.

Alice McCall (BS Psychology, MBA, Hypnotherapist) is an Advanced Energy Healer, Spiritual Counselor and Inspirational Speaker.  Her passion is to help others heal using the entire mind, body, spirit, emotion spectrum.  Her specialty is to transform deep blocks of dense energy at the cellular level, enhancing her clients’ health, joy, and spiritual evolution.  Using this approach she recently healed herself naturally of breast cancer.  Her numerous articles are published in many national and local publications.  Her internet radio program has been labeled “a breath of fresh air”.  She offers phone sessions, retreats and educational workshops.  Ms McCall lives in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida with her Yorkshire terrier, Keta, where she is currently working on her first book.  Learn more about Alice and her practice at www.healingpath.info

Ideal Health
with Dr. Sommer Knittig, M.D.

Sommer Knittig, M.D. Hospitalist, and is Board Certified in Internal Medicine in Perdidio Key, Florida.

 

As a physician with an interest in wellness, anti-aging and weight loss, I have finally found a company and a product that is worth putting my name behind.  Ideal Health has made its customized supplement affordable, not just to elite athletes and the wealthy, but also to the general public.  Even I am surprised by the subjective improvements in my immune system and energy level.


The multivitamin/mineral supplement industry is confusing for people to navigate.  There are hundreds of products to choose from.  Which product is the best?  How do you know if you are taking too much or too little?  I initially fell in love with Custom Essentials because it is a phenomenal product that each of us needs as part of our wellness and anti-aging package to naturally maximize our energy levels and ward off the development of chronic disease.

 

I had no idea when I found this company, that I would now be in the position of knowing that I will be retired before I'm 40 with an income that dwarfs mine and my husband's current two-physician income.  I believed I had neither the experience nor knowledge to allow me to pursue this business opportunity with the limited amount of free time I have.  However, thankfully, I took the time to listen and get involved with this wonderful company.

 

1:00 - 1:45

The Gulf Breeze UFO Story - 1987-1998 
with Art Hufford, Former President, Pensacola/Gulf Breeze MUFON

Art Hufford will present a full review of the Gulf Breeze UFO Story, documenting 11 years of contact with Unidentified Flying Objects.

Art's presentation will feature over 100 slides and video clips.  His presentation will begin with the Ed Walters Story (1987-88), covering Ed’s photographs, the controversy surrounding them, and the many other witnesses to those sightings.  He will then review the Skywatch Era (1990-1992), when hundreds of photographs and hours of video were taken, documenting that very active period of nighttime UFO sightings.  Finally, he will cover some other Gulf Breeze UFO events, including a number of daylight photos and videos from 1987-1998. 

Art Hufford is an honors graduate of Georgia Tech in Chemical Engineering and has a MBA from the University of West Florida.  He retired in 1997 from the Monsanto Company following a 33-year career in management.  He joined the Mutual UFO Network in 1988 and became a MUFON Field Investigator.  He was later appointed MUFON State Section Director for Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.  For 11 years, he served as President of Pensacola/Gulf Breeze MUFON, the predecessor organization to Unlimited Horizons.  In addition to his UFO interests, he remains very active in his church and in the Pensacola community. 

Art’s UFO interests began unexpectedly in November, 1987, when he and his wife had a daylight sighting of a craft, a craft that looked just like the UFO photographed by Ed Walters on 11/11/87.  Thus his initial involvement in the Ed Walters case was as that of a witness.  Later, he was involved in the re-investigation of the Ed Walters case and published a summary of that investigation in the January 1993 MUFON UFO Journal.  In 1991, he began skywatching with a group that became known as the Gulf Breeze Research Team; over a 20-month period, they documented 177 UFO sightings in the Gulf Breeze area.  As an expert on the Gulf Breeze UFO Story, he has been interviewed for scores of newspaper and magazine articles and has appeared on radio and television programs, such as Unsolved Mysteries, Sightings, and Encounters, plus TV shows in Japan, England, Germany, and Mexico.

Energy Healing & Galactic Healing
with Mike Maier

Energy Healing or Vibrational Healing is an integral element in our spiritual journey.  The body is the earthly temple for the spirit.  By using various methods and techniques we feel the energies around and in the body can be cleaned and cleared, allowing for spiritual progress.

Learning to place oneself in the flow of the Reiki energy can heighten the spiritual consciousness.  As the flow increases, due to higher levels of training, so does the inner light.  Also, learning to meditate can help clear and center the mind, intensifying the healing light.  Reiki is a Japanese word for the universal life energy.  Universal refers to the spirit that resides in all things.  Life energy is the force that flows through all things, to manifest them.  The practice of Reiki uses the universal life energy to effect positive changes in the body, mind and spirit.  Reiki is a method of using the Universal Life Force (ULF) to help people help themselves.  ULF is channeled through a practitioner to produce a deep relaxation allowing the recipient to balance and heal themselves.  The relaxation is accentuated by energizing the Chakras and clearing the auric field.  The Reiki flow helps release resistance so the body, mind and spirit can balance itself.  Reiki uses a mind technique of using symbols to generate Vibrational energy allowing the flow of the ULF energy.  These frequencies of vibration have proven to be beneficial to the well being of humans, pets, plants and minerals.  It can do no harm and many have benefited greatly from the application of Reiki.  Reiki enhances personal awareness.  It promotes creativity; it strengthens meditation and intuition.  It loosens blockages and promotes a state of relaxation.  It reduces stress.

Galactic Healing is a system that connects you with the five chakras above the crown of the head.  This galactic frequency works on the energetic layers of your spirit that connects you to your source.  The higher level activations help to support our moving into the fourth dimension.  Galactic Healing reactivates parts of your DNA and parts of the brain that have been dormant for eons.  Galactic Healing: Relieves Stress, Releases Blockages in the etheric field and it helps rebalance the body.  Galactic Healing is a profound energy that helps the individual realize their connection to source energy. It can be used on self, others, and on pets.

Mike & Penny Maier own Wildflower Studio which is a business dedicated to its patron’s pursuit of their chosen spiritual path.  We have products and services for the development of an individual’s particular path.  We provide a forum for many paths to express themselves in a setting of love and appreciation for the diversity of life and freedom to believe in the spirit as they wish.  We offer discount prices on new age/metaphysical gifts, crystals, stones and jewelry.  Galactic Healing, Reiki and Crystal Healing classes are offered on an individual basis, as well as pre-announced classes.

Mike has been a Reiki Master/Teacher since 2002.  Mike and Penny studied Galactic Healing with Dr. Shelly Kaehr and are both Ordained Ministers.

The Urantia Book: Compelling Evidence of E.T. Contact
with Arnie Ondis

The URANTIA Book is a compilation of truth essentially about our relationship to the Creator and the cosmos.  "Urantia" is the name by which our planet Earth is known throughout the universe of universes to the trillions of inhabited worlds and personalities, both non-material and of higher intelligence and material, like ourselves.  The word means "your place in the universe."  The Urantia revelation is a gift to us from higher beings, who are involved in overseeing the progressive evolution of our planet, in order to expand our cosmic consciousness and enhance our spiritual perception.

The lecture material is presented through the lens of our cosmic citizenship. The nature of revelation and the nature of evidence will be examined.  We will discuss some of the intelligent beings who have visited our planet and/or authored the papers.  Focus is placed on the deeper meanings and spiritual values associated with their message and presence.  We will consider evidence – measurable, observable and experiential – that validates the authenticity of the book.

Participants will gain an expanded realization of their place in the universe, which may lead them to act in new ways, or with deeper purpose, associated with the significance of their status as citizens of this great, friendly cosmos.

Arnie Ondis considers that all of his life’s experiences were leading him to the critical juncture when, at age 20, he was given The URANTIA Book.  That seminal moment was a life altering event that directed him to his true life path.  He knows that it is only through loving service to our Creator and our fellows that we grow toward self-realization and God-attainment.  Arnie is a member of The Urantia Book Fellowship (www.urantiabook.org), an international organization dedicated to the dissemination of The URANTIA Book.  It is his joyous life mission to share freely with others that which he freely receives.  Arnie is the facilitator of the Gulf Breeze Urantia Study/Discussion Group and is available to anyone with questions about the book.  He may be contacted at UBookGB@aol.com.

Arnie invites you to visit The URANTIA Book booth at this festival where copies of the book may be obtained for a nominal donation to The Urantia Book Fellowship, other free material is available, and readers are available to answer questions.

Reiki and More
with Sandy Trimble

Sandy Trimble has been a Reiki Practitioner since 1993 and has been teaching Reiki since 1998.  She is an Usui Reiki Master, a Karuna(R) Reiki Master, and a Sr. Licensed Reiki Master Teacher with the International Center for Reiki Training.  She teaches all levels of Reiki classes throughout the South and awards CE's for Massage Therapists, Nurses, and Occupational Therapists.  As co-owner of Mana Lomi Reiki & Massage in Shalimar, she offers Reiki sessions and massage therapy to clients, as well as other personal growth classes.

Reiki is a healing modality that has been in the United States since the mid-1930s, yet it has been an unfamiliar term to a great many people.  In the past few years, Reiki has been talked about in many circles of society and recently been featured in a television program on Grey's Anatomy and mentioned by name on a recent Private Practice television program.  Scientific research has been conducted on the energy that emanates from healing practitioner's hands as they channel the energy.  Research has also been conducted on the ways Reiki can help those who are dealing with cancer and other illnesses / dis-ease.  Reiki is finally coming of age and people are looking for those who practice and teach it.

For many years people learned Reiki to help themselves and others; they still do.  But, Reiki is also very beneficial to those who may not be in the healing practices.  This presentation will relate ways Reiki can be used in normal every day living and work lives.

Finally, this presentation will relate how Reiki becomes a "way of life" for those who choose to work with the energy on a daily basis and how it enhances the spiritual journey each person is on.  If you have wondered about Reiki, this presentation will not disappoint.

Crystal Companions for Balance, Clarity & Ascension
with Nena Elantra Roberts

I often collected rocks and shells as a child and felt a connection to the rock energy that went beyond what I could explain.  In 1995, I began formal training to be a healing practioner and spiritual counselor.  My crystal collection took on a new meaning and I added many new faces.  Late in 2003, I returned to my home area in High Springs, Florida, and began working as the seasonal store manager at The High Springs Emporium in January 2004.  The information which I present is a result of my 6+ years of interaction with the crystals and how they can be of assistance to us now.

During this time the influx of energies onto the planet, our daily lives are rapidly changing.  We will explore three areas where crystals can offer unique support for us now: 
* Balance for our emotional and physical bodies
* Clarity in our heart and intuitive centers
* Access to ascension energy

First, balance in the emotions: it is time to get off the roller coaster and create a foundation to build joyful interactions and a centered space into our daily lives.  Blue Hemimorphite is a “living blue” and is like a bubbling well that streams light and uplifting energy into the emotional and physical body.  Labradorite activates the mystic within and creates a cushion of iridescent light around the stone carrier that brings balance in the auric field.  It also helps to stabilize the higher frequencies that are pouring into our energy fields, smoothing out and sealing the outer edges of our energy bubbles.  We will also explore other balancing crystals including the Lemurian roots, petalite, and more.

Second, clarity is paramount to surf these times with ease.  In order to be clear we often need to clean out the old closets and energy banks within.  Two great helpers for that are Azurite and Malachite.  Azurite works in the third eye, or the intuitive center to remove the stagnant energy and the excessive stimulus that has congealed there in order to free up that center for clear communication from the highest source.  Malachite stabilizes the emotions by pulling out the old hurts that are lodged in the heart center.

Third, ascension crystals are the most rare and unique stones that connect us to our highest aspects of ourselves and to the Divine Source.  We will journey though many rare and unusual specimens including:  Natrolite with its radiant clusters that open the crown chakra to divine.  Herderite realigns and revolutionizes how the brain receives and processes higher energy frequencies.  Shattakite, ajoite, and papagoite open the door for waking dreams and visions.  Plus more....

All of these specimens will be for sale during the Metaphysical Festival at the High Springs Emporium booth.  Come by and check them out!
