Three young, inexperienced magicians must defend their world against a wave of increasingly difficult opponents. That’s what Magi of Gaia is essentially about, but if you’re only looking for fierce, hard-hitting action, you’ll overlook the humor, kindness, and drama that bring this world to life. Sure, you might be happy with the amazing uses of magic and the broken noses, but you’ll miss out on seeing the quick temper of the usually-composed Jorri, the softheartedness escaping from Yuna’s severe demeanor, or Eren’s courage overcoming her self-doubt.
This trio, the Magi, are the imperfect heroes—human in spite of their incredible powers—and are tasked with keeping their world from falling into darkness. When a magician enters Gaia’s realm, it’s the Magi’s job to find them, determine whether or not they are hostile, and deal with the situation appropriately. It’s a lot to ask, and things aren’t helped by the appearance of a woman claiming to be a deity whose sole joy seems to be breaking the Magi’s spirit … and their bodies. This woman shows her powers seldomly, but when she does, she breaks the very logic of their world and makes it look effortless.
Come and read more. Find out how our heroines can laugh and joke around, even under the toughest of circumstances. See if you can figure out why Eren, a girl who should be a beloved hero, is treated as though she’s diseased. Discover why 80% of Gaia’s population is … female?!
It seems Gaia is different from Earth is more ways than you might think.
Meet T.E. Holtz
T.E. Holtz is an American writer who first started drafting the original Magi of Gaia (then titled “Welcome to Gaia”) as a playful hobby online in 2014. After a year of writing for fun, Holtz saw that the story could be reworked in a meaningful way with more excitement, better characterization, and a more, fuller view of this new world called Gaia. Finally, after years of tweaking and developing, Holtz ended a nearly 10-year employment at one of the world’s largest retailers in hopes of pursuing a love grander than the universe—a love for the world of Gaia and all the beloved characters than inhabit it.
Will the Garret Poet become what he desires most? The Garret Poet dreams of being a bard. He dreams of flying and singing like a nightingale — like any bird for that matter. However, his work holds him tight to his narrow room, where he watches the world he labors to be part of pass by his window. He loves. He yearns. He gives, and he takes life. He reads, he writes, he cries, and he broods over that which causes him existential strife. He does this in his garret room, offering all for the sake of poetry, to set himself free from his anticipations and doubts. And finally, to rightly pay his respects to the nightingales that sang before him with his fitful poesies.

Whether you are a veteran leader or an aspiring entrepreneur, this book will spark your creativity and inspire you to make positive changes within your organization.
Your future as a well-paid professional within a service-based industry is in serious jeopardy. Whether it be real estate, mortgage, insurance, wealth management, or similar, it is time to pay attention to what is happening. Little by little, your customers are warming up to the easy, safe, convenient and non-committal benefits of your complete or partial replacement by ever-advancing technology offerings.
An unwillingness or inability to grow and adapt accordingly will lead to one of the following undesirable outcomes: 1. You own an unprofitable business that pays you subsistence wages to work around the clock while you wear out your health and your relationships. 2. You become a lower-paid functionary/sales and service representative of one of these disruptive technology companies. 3. You are forced out of your industry altogether.
While traditional cold-market and warm-market methods are failing us, I introduce to you a new, or alternative method, The Upstream Model, which allows you to leverage the pros of cold-market (scalability) with the pros of warm-market (relationships).
The Upstream Model allows you to create endless streams of warm referrals. Rather than focusing on large databases of the wrong people to eek out a few sales or referrals a year, this model allows you to get more business from fewer relationships by focusing your value proposition on professionals in different industries that know that a transaction is coming in your industry before these future customers talk to anyone in your industry.

Pete Kennedy knew as a child that he was not being served. Growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, he was looking for a leader but couldn’t find one. A distant father, being low-income, surrounded by crime, all of these factors pushed Pete down a path he might not have traveled if he had better direction. Pete Kennedy chronicles his life choices based on what he never had: real leadership. When a Man Loves is a captivating story about a young Jamaican man navigating the world without much-needed guidance. This story is one man’s journey navigating masculinity and all the traps it sets. Pete Kennedy witnessed how men have failed in their culture, their families, and themselves without it. He saw it with his own eyes. Selling drugs, joining gangs, and endless affairs, Pete walks on the wild side. Until one day, he knew he had to stop. Part memoir, part self-development, When a Man Loves illustrates how men can learn how to be leaders and untangle themselves from society’s toxic expectations. Through travel and therapy, Pete discovers how to live an honest, connected life. Within these pages, Pete shows us how to become the leaders we all have inside of us and how to set ourselves up for success. We learn what the MUST, SHOULD, COULDs are of our lives, and how to live a life of love through leadership. Pete teaches us to apply leadership in every facet of our lives: our families, friendships, and careers.
If you have headaches, neck pain, neck stiffness, back spasms, muscle pain, back pain, shoulder pain, and pain between the shoulder blades, numbness and tingling, you may have thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS).
TOS is caused by compression of the neck, upper back, rib cage and the shoulder that squeeze the blood vessels and nerves that pass from the chest and neck through the thoracic tunnel into the arm.
TOS is one of the most controversial conditions in medicine. For most patients there thoracic outlet syndrome is overlooked and misdiagnosed leaving them suffering needlessly in chronic pain for months and even years. Then one day, someone says, “Could it be thoracic outlet syndrome?”
Over the last 30 years, studies confirm that doctor’s knowledge of the basic anatomy has dipped below a safe and acceptable level.
That is why their exams cant determine if you have TOS or one of these similar conditions:
– a herniated disc? a bulged disc? a slipped disc? – a pinched nerve in the neck? cervical radiculopathy? a brachial plexus injury? brachial neuritis? – shoulder hyperabduction? a shoulder impingement? a rotator cuff syndrome? – median nerve entrapment? cubital tunnel syndrome? carpal tunnel syndrome? – Raynaud’s phenomenon? a Pancoast’s lung tumor? a syringomyelia? – muscular sclerosis? muscular dystrophy? – cervical ribs? an elevated first rib?
What if it is a combination of a few of these conditions? Oh no!
Confused, doctors order an MRI. You think they are getting down to business but sadly doctors know they can’t diagnose or determine the cause of TOS with an MRI.
If you are misdiagnosed, their treatment approach wont work.
This book has an entire chapter on how to back-check your doctors diagnosis.
There are more than 16 different treatment approaches doctors recommend to treat TOS. Some advocate painkillers, NSAIDS, scalene injections, Botox injections, stretching, traction, nerve gliding, ultrasound, muscle stimulation, dry needling, supports, ergonomic corrections, first rib and spinal adjustments, massage, stretches and exercises. Which one “by itself” removes all the compression that causes TOS and prevents it from returning? None of them!
When these conservative treatments fail, you are facing TOS surgery. There are 4 muscles that lift the first rib (tunnel floor) up into the outlet and 6 muscles that drag the shoulder (tunnel roof) down into the outlet. TOS surgery only removes the rib (floor) and 3 muscles and one of the 6 muscles that drag the shoulder (roof) down into the outlet.
What if you just painkillers and live in chronic pain? The constant compression could cause a blood clot in the vein under the collarbone. If it releases as a pulmonary embolism it could cause a pulmonary infarct that may kill you.
What is the human spring approach?
If you don’t know how the body works a doctor can tell you anything and you have to believe them. Knowing doctors this is not a good position to be in. His teachings will help you sharpen your judgment on what course to take in treatment & prevention.
He teaches how the body uses springs systems to absorb collisions of walking and running, springs to recycle energy and spring engineering to maintain a strong wide open thoracic outlet and tunnel.
The aha moment is when you learn the that most treatments are only effective at restoring your lever mechanisms. You cant restore the thoracic outlet, spring engineering with treatments designed for lever mechanisms only!
This book has photos of 30 self-massage and stretching exercises that you can do yourself to reduce your muscle and joint pain. He also provides photos of the approach he uses to restore your spring so you can show your doctor what to do. There are over 30 stretches & exercises that will lift the roof (shoulder) off the thoracic outlet to prevent TOS from recurring.
