I received this email from Gay and Katie Hendricks of The Shift Network and just had to pass it on. Enjoy!

We wanted to dash off a quick email to you today and share some fun research on hugging. There’s actually an ideal length for a hug that makes a particular difference in your connection with someone. And the magic number is…

20 seconds!

Yep, that’s all it takes to release oxytocin in your body. Oxytocin, as you may remember, is the bonding hormone that allows you to establish a deep connection with others.

While 20 seconds seems like a short amount of time, think about the hugs you typically give and receive. Most are about 3 seconds or less.

Further research has also shown that oxytocin can help reduce your blood pressure and your risk of heart disease. So, hugging is a wonderful health benefit, too!

The next time you go to hug your mate, family member, friend or someone else you’re close to, try embracing for at least 20 seconds and experience the positive difference this can make for both of you.


Sending you a hug ’til next time,

Gay & Katie

Today is a Powerful Prosperity Day!

By Sallie Keys

I received this in an email earlier today and wanted to share it…

Did you know today is a Powerful Prosperity Day where the energies of wealth attraction are amplified?

This 3rd Waxing Moon is most blessed for financial growth, business success and eliminating losses.

This year Akshaya Tritiyai, a Hindu Holy day falls on a Friday, which is considered very rare and auspicious as Fridays are ruled by Venus.

Goddess Lakshmi – the Goddess of Wealth – controls Venus, which represents the energies of luxury, beauty and abundance.

The energies of Sun (worldly success), Moon (mental acumen), Jupiter (auspiciousness), Mars (stamina) and Venus (prosperity) are at their highest on May 6th.

This unique configuration means this day is the only 24-hour window during the year when the energies of wealth attraction are amplified massively!

Take advantage of the day to the best of your ability! KNOW that true wealth, abundance, and prosperity is
coming your way! Above all ENJOY it as you see it take shape in front of you!
