Do You Know Who You Are? – by Shuddaanandaa Brahmachari


We have all read about celebrity suicides in the news lately. The number of famous people who are dying young, either through active suicide or passive suicide of drug overdoses and addictions bring the alarming increase of suicides to mind. Statistics show that the US has an increase of 30% more suicides in the last twenty years. We count the number of people who have been successful in committing suicide, but the number of those who are continually in a suicidal mode of mind, world-wide, is staggering. The one who lives in the grip of the disillusioned mind is already on the path to suicide. The person may live for 80 years, but that is only a number. The person is more dead than alive, deeply asleep and unaware of who they truly ARE!

Hardwired for a Cushy Life – by Annette Rochelle Aben


The dictionary defines the word pillow, as a cushion. That makes sense to me, as I use a pillow to cushion my head while I sleep. Some people even have an item called a body pillow, which allows them to support the majority of their physical mass while sleeping. And what about those wee little “puffies” that we can slip under our feet when stretched out on the chaise? Guess most of us would agree that pillows are more than useful, for at times, they are necessary.

Become Your Best Self – by Nancy Zimmerman


I have been writing now for about five years. Writing was not a task I ever aspired to. I was not a person who dreamed of writing the great American novel. Actually, I dreaded writing assignments in high school and avoided professors who made students write a lot in college. It was not my “thing” until it was. I became a writer by accident really.

The Illumination of Intuition – by Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari


Each one of us is potentially divine. In the womb of our consciousness, we are eternally carrying within us the ultimate peak of manifestation, the illumination of intuition. Intuition is the Universal Intelligence that flashes within us when, even for a split second, we are connected with that inner, indwelling spirit that’s part of each of us. The intuition flowers, it sparks, and it ignites our pure intelligence with information and knowledge unheard of.

For most people it is normal to take care of their body and most of the time also about their Heart or Heart affairs I might say. Not everyone feels the connections between the body, mind heart and soul and the importance of the co- operation between them. Some might have heard about the Chakras in relation with the body, yet for the western society this is a pretty new way to take a look at the holistic energy field we as a human being are representing.

Direct Knowing – by Roger Wyer


We know very little. Very, very little. So little, we can’t really even imagine what’s in the container of “things I don’t know.” But sometimes, we find ourselves needing to know something we think is important. With practice, we can penetrate this container and bring back the information we need.

Riddle of the Rabbits – by Moon Laramie

In January 2001, my mother suffered a stroke from which she never fully recovered. As her condition worsened, she was eventually admitted into a nursing home for round the clock care. In June 2003 her condition rapidly deteriorated. She was no longer able to recognise her family and her body began to shut down. On Wednesday 3 July 2003, the day she died, our family was maintaining a vigil by her bedside. At about 4 p.m. my sister suggested we go back to her home for a rest break. While we were there, a call came through telling us that my mother was slipping away and we should come back immediately. As we raced through narrow country lanes, our car was forced to stop at the traffic lights at an intersection just a few minutes from the nursing home. The sky had darkened considerably since we started the journey and as we waited for the lights to turn green, the heavens opened. Sheets of rain fell from the sky. At that precise moment, with rain pelting the car windscreen, I was gripped by an overwhelming feeling that my mother had died. When we got to the home a few minutes later, we found my father and my other sister coming out of my mother’s room. She had died at the exact moment of my strange intuitive feeling.

To Ever Evolve – by Bob Rush


I often feel like I have hit the proverbial brick wall. You know, in a rut, spinning one’s wheels, running in place and so on. It’s one step forward and three steps back with an occasional sidestep. This seems to come from setting my bar way too high to the point of being unrealistic. And in so doing, frustration has made me an easy mark. Bring on the should of’s.

How Important It Is To Reset Your Belief System – by Rhea Dopmeijer


Listening as well reading up a lot of messages these past months about the shifts and changes we are going through as humanity one thing struck me the most. The way our belief system is holding its grasp on us. Now this is not new to me, since I have been working with this for the past 40 years or so. At least on a conscious level that is.

Reset Your Life – by Nancy Zimmerman


I am a technological novice. The technical advances that have impressed me are VHS and the microwave. I remember having television as a child, but I also remember the first time I saw a color television program. I was at a friend’s house on a Sunday evening when I was in the eighth grade. The show was Bonanza and when that orange flame burned into the map of the Ponderosa, it was a time I will never forget. The amazement of having a disposable camera and a portable phone, caught my attention also in later years.

Wait!…You mean I get a Do-Over – by Bob Rush


One of the real joys of life is the chance to stop, reset the focus, exhale and know I can always start my day over at anytime. Pretty powerful medicine. Such a delicious thought. For so long, if I was stuck in the old hamster wheel of going nowhere fast, I would just accept it, put my blinders on, be the dutiful soldier and march on. Include a little more grimacing as I march. Little did I realize that I always had the power to change my situation in a blink of an eye.

The Secret of Your Feet – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


The feet are perhaps the most neglected part of your body. Many people use their feet so little that they degenerate quicker than any other part of the human economy. Grown ups with athletes feet, dry skin, corns, cracks in the soles, fungi on the nails of the feet or deformed toes are very common. On the other side, we have people without arms that have learned to use the feet as hands and are able to do amazing things with them.

Reset Your Self-Care Routine – by Mindy A. Early

I am an introvert in an extroverted field. Sometimes, instead of networking, I find a quiet hallway where I can do half sun salutations to stretch out my anxiety. During long meetings, I use a trip to the restroom to practice pranayama breathing and recite mantras in the quiet of the stall. While my coworkers may think I’m typing on my phone to fire off a quick email, sometimes I’m doing a free write on a Google.Doc to process a strong emotion. A great self-care plan can certainly take as long as a nature hike, but that plan is useless if we can’t hike until the weekend and we need to decompress right now.
