Ocean Ridge Estates by The Panama Collection Sold Lot #2!!!

Hello future neighbors in five different countries, and welcome to the latest greatest issue of The Ocean Ridge Report. This newsletter is getting so popular that Donald Trump offered to buy me out, so he could start charging a heavy fee to all you readers out there. Don’t worry – I told The Donald to take a hike. Okay, seriously now – the project keeps growing, so let’s meet the new neighbors:

Rob and Joan 300x225 Ocean Ridge Estates by The Panama Collection Sold Lot #2!!!1) More Florida people. Say hola to Rob and Joan Spering, proud owners of lot 2 (photo). Originally from Pennsylvania, they now live in central Florida, just north of Orlando. Rob has a company that’s involved in the printing business, and Joan works in a seminary. The plan is to semi-retire in about three years, and split their time between Panama and Florida. With five kids and eight grandkids, I predict that they’ll have plenty of visitors.

Leos house 150x150 Ocean Ridge Estates by The Panama Collection Sold Lot #2!!!2) Houses everywhere. Tom and Stephanie’s house of lot 7 is steadily nearing completion, Leo and Willy’s guesthouse on 14 is about finished, and Pieter and Joka’s guesthouse on 4 looks great after just three weeks (photos). Yvette on lot 15 is next in line; we should be starting her house before the end of March. Looks like we might actually have some neighbors within the next year or two – won’t that be fun?

Pieters house 150x150 Ocean Ridge Estates by The Panama Collection Sold Lot #2!!!3) Residency update. Like I’ve said in past newsletters, establishing residency in Panama doesn’t need to be a top priority at first, because you can live here as long as you want without ever becoming a resident.

However, I thought it might be a good idea for me to go ahead and establish residency here in Panama, if for no other reason than to be able to help our neighbors do the same thing if and when they want. After some research, I think I found the best attorney in Panama for getting this done – thanks to Bob and Annie (lot 10) for giving me the original lead. Her name is Rainelda Mata-Kelly in Panama City; she is primarily an immigration attorney who has done “hundreds and hundreds” of residency applications for foreigners around the world. Her fee is around $3300 – a little high, but my theory has always been that it’s worth paying a little more for the best. I started the process in February, and it should take 4-6 months.

Coco kiss 150x150 Ocean Ridge Estates by The Panama Collection Sold Lot #2!!! Loco kiss 150x150 Ocean Ridge Estates by The Panama Collection Sold Lot #2!!!That’s it for now in Paradise. Patricia sends out kisses to everybody, starting with Loco and Coco !

Be safe out there – it’s a crazy world

The Rhythm of Stillness by White Crane Healing Arts

WhiteCrane 2 The Rhythm of Stillness by White Crane Healing Artsby Frank Iborra on February 10, 2014

An integrated body and mind is a naturally healthy space. Navigating from this space enhances experiences and interactions with everyone and everything. Many of the activities we choose to spend time on daily can have the opposite effect. Dis-intergration results in scattered thoughts, feelings, accomplishments and dreams. Furthermore, it affects how we move our physical bodies; and over an extended period of time, it deeply affects the nervous system.

The Chinese understood that every part contained the whole; and that every part could only be understood within the context of the whole. When practicing the art of tai chi chuan or any other body mind art, one begins by experiencing the various parts of our being at play, bringing into our awareness, the tensions in our body, the quality of our breathing, the sense of our nervous system, the motion of our mind and many other components of body mind interactions.

As the process of feeling our way into reality grows and matures, a deeper transformation occurs. We begin to enter into deeper spaces of quiet and eventually emptiness. We dance between the world of yin and yang and the whole of emptiness. Some call this body-mind harmony. I like to call this the rhythm of stillness.

Good Journey,

Create A Protective Energy Field Using Medical Qi Gong

By Lisa VanOstrand, DMQ

Many people ask what they can do to protect themselves from outside influences. This is one of my favorite protective meditations from my medical qi gong teacher, Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson.

In modern energy healing modalities, it would not be considered unusual to hear of energy fields or auras. Even in Traditional Chinese Medicine the wei qi field is known to have a boundary that extends past the skin and its purpose is to offer protection. Pathogenic factors can enter in when our wei qi is weak. In addition to the wei qi field associated with the physical body, Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson defines a second and third wei qi or energy field associated with the mental/emotional and spiritual. With the spiritual energy field begin the furthest energy field out, next is the mental/emotional, and the physical energy field being the closest to the body.

This meditation is great to do before beginning your day of healing work. There are also certain places that one can use additional protection like entering a hospital, subway or airport.

Between Miami and Key West: Florida’s different vibe

Florida’s popularity with Canadians is no secret. During the winter, provincial licence plates are almost as common as state ones in beach towns along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Attraction-packed Orlando and glitzy Miami draw huge Canadian contingents, too.
