Imagine the space around you, nine feet in all directions. This is your aura. Animals have hoofs, claws and teeth. Human beings have this divine shield of protection. What happens to you happens in your aura first so having a strong bright aura repels negativity draws in love, joy and peace.
Here are 5 ways to strengthen your aura:
1. Sing out loud
Chose an uplifting song or mantra and belt it out. The sound of your voice changes the vibration of cells in your body and of the Universe itself.
2. Cold Showers
A three minute cold shower feels great in the summer. The cold water causes toxins to rise to the surface of your skin and adjusts the electromagnetic frequency of your blood. Avoid wetting the top of your head and pay extra attention to flushing your under arms.
3. Wear white
Blending all the colours and reflecting light is the advantage of wearing white. It is uplifting to the eye and creates a neutral palette for those around you. They see their own highest consciousness and you get to reflect that back to them. Lofty idea and simple to do.
4. Watch those electronics
Keep your personal force field intact by having a device free zone in your home. Plug in and power up away from your bedroom and areas where you rest and relax. Replace dead batteries and purge devices that you no longer use. These electronics carry a latent charge that can affect your aura.

I am a huge fan of Adeeva Nutritionals - a Canadian supplement company founded by Dr. James Meschino - my nutrition professor at CMCC as well under whom I studied for my fellowship in Integrative Nutrition.
This month, his focus is on Stress. Here is a tidbit from his recent newsletter of what stress is and how it affects us and what supplements are clinically proven to help mitigate the effects of stress on our bodies:
"It's a known fact that stress and anxiety plague 80% of Americans. Stress manifests itself psychologically and physically, with the more common symptoms being fatigue, headache, sleep disturbances, digestive upset, muscle tension, and irritability. Stress is also known to rob the body of essential vitamins and minerals. A healthy diet and smart supplementation with essential nutrients can help the body fight back. To replace your "nutrient fuel tank", look no further than your high-potency multi-vitamin. Make sure it contains adequate amounts of the following nutrients, by reviewing its ingredients with your healthcare professional.

Award-winning director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's latest motion picture BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG has been heating up the music charts this summer with three smash hit songs with music from Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy.
The Farhan Akhtar-Sonam Kapoor starrer tells the true story of India's original sports hero Olympian Milkha Singh who became known as the "Flying Sikh" thanks to his incredible 96.5% winning ratio.
'Milkha Singh'- for some the name evokes a faint memory from the pages of history. All that is most remembered is that Milkha Singh, hailed as the Flying Sikh, was a famous athlete who infamously lost the penultimate race of his life.
"The one who lost the 400 meters finals at the Rome Olympics" is an involuntary response when the name Milkha Singh is mentioned.
The film attempts to understand a catastrophic loss that was deemed a sure victory and explores through the darkness of disgrace; Milkha's redemption, the redemption and catharsis that come when he confronts his past.
Milkha ironically finds himself in a place wherein he had lost his all - Pakistan - a place where he witnessed the bloody massacre of his entire family. The demons hidden in some dark corner of his consciousness come alive.

The more I travel the more similarities I see between cultures. During my trip to Europe and Turkey this fall, I came across traditional Arabic desserts, snacks and drinks that looked and tasted very much like their Indian counterparts. Of course, with India's ancient history with the Mughal empire, a crossover was bound to happen. Here is Desi Globetrotter's
guide to decoding the names behind these epicurean delights:

Yes, most definitely yes, says Veena Gokhale, author of Bombay Wali and other stories, recently released by Canadian publisher Guernica Editions.
Bombay, like New York, Paris, London and other world cities, is teeming with tantalizing tales!
"Six of the 12 stories in my book reflect the slum-speckled, City of Gold I knew in the 1980s," says Gokhale.
"I was a college student and then a journalist in Bombay, and it had not been renamed Mumbai then.
I wrote the stories in Toronto nearly 10 years later. I was doing my Masters at York University and the stories started tumbling out.
