What is it about sleep and being fully awake? – by Rhea Dopmeijer


.
The opposite of sleep is being awake, yet we can approach this phenomenon from different perspectives. The physical, mental or emotional as well the spiritual way. So how to decide which way to approach right now. To me, all is connected with each other; my holistic vision so to speak. My awareness is always connected with my mental and emotional state, which has always its effect on my body. This seems to be the part of me that needs to integrate every time I change something in myself. Either my emotional state regarding my lifetime experiences. Or my wake up calls so to speak when it comes to gaining more knowledge. This life’s journey has been connected always through my physical being.

Who Watches Your Mind But YOU? – by Shuddhaanandaa Bramachari


We are separate from our mind, but we do not perceive this. We are also separate from our body, but this is equally difficult to perceive. It is only when we awaken to the reality from within that we are the watcher of our mind and body that we begin to perceive who is the Watcher of our thoughts! We are not the mind, nor the body.

Snowflake! – by Cheryl Butterworth


I’m so excited to be writing to you… and about Snowflake!

There are many snowflakes in my life at the moment!  Like billions of them!  It is -23 degrees below 0 Celsius and we have at least a foot of light fluffy snow.   Now that is cold, but not unbearable.  Where I live, the climate is dry, so the cold does not go to the center of your bones and stay there, no matter how you try to evict the unwelcome lodger!!  Now saying all that, we have sunshine that is so brilliant it makes each snowflake glitter, so much so, you are completely dazzled!  What are needed on the sunny days with all the snow are Inuit snow goggles, the oldest sunglasses in the world, without the glass.

We are all snowflakes – by Aeson Knight


As children, I’m sure we all made snowflakes, where you folded paper and cut out the design, of a snowflake. No matter how hard we tried you could never look the same as in nature. No snowflakes are the same. We were often told that as children but what we did not put together is that we are also like snowflakes, we are not the same.

Looking for Love – by David Little


What do you do when you awake in the morning? Do you begin to think of all the things you need to do? Does that control the way your day proceeds? I think that’s the way for most people.

Am I brave or delusional? – by Annie Gelfand


Never underestimate the courage it takes to go off the beaten path.

Following one’s knowing often takes us out of the comfort zone, feeling wildly out of control. However, it is here that we are most true to ourselves. It is here that we are most present, alive and engaged in our lives. It feels a lot like being on a wild roller coaster ride never knowing where it will go next and if it might fall off the rails. Excited exuberance and just a little bit nerve wracking.

Snowflakes – by Linda Lang


 

Snowflakes… beautiful crystals of frozen water molecules… Do your remember Dr Emoto’s research on water crystals?  He discovered how our thoughts, emotions and the energy we broadcast can influence the shape of the water’s molecule.  How even the music we listen to can affect it…  And we are 70% water!!

Are you more capable than you have acknowledged? – by Annie Gelfand


Have you ever had people in your life who have been phenomenal creators of crap? They just love trauma and drama in their lives. You know who I mean…the ones who things continuously “happen” to – either their neighbour’s hot water tank explodes and floods their condo, or their cat gets sick and almost dies, or they are sick for the godzillionth time this year?

Super You – by Annette Rochelle Aben


You were born with a beautiful gift. No, not your lovely eyes. No, not the thick, amazing hair you had the moment you made your debut, either.

Why, some may even call this a SUPER POWER!!

What’s your story? – by Kat McCarthy


Happy New Year! A New Year is delicious, isn’t it? It has the feel of an opportunity to redefine ourselves and that is what leads so many of us to make New Year’s resolutions. Which are fine, if it works for you. Me, not so much.
