Waiting for Santa Claus – by Nancy Zimmerman


I have absolutely no idea why this title came to me. I attribute it to my spirit guide, Gloria.  She has helped give me direction on more than one occasion, so I am not about to doubt her now. I have recently been introduced to a medium who seems to be extremely aligned with the spirit world. This followed on the end of my having my Natal Chart figured. There were two different people involved, so it was not a crossover configured by knowledge of that natal chart.

WAIT! – by Kishan Takahashi


What does it mean to wait?
To wait is to simply stop, or pause and take a breath.
But why don’t we want to wait?
In my experience  don’t wait anymore because they think and feel that the world is too fast AROUND them. They think they have to rush to keep up.
What we have failed to realise is that the world is only fast WITHIN US.
And we have created this anxiety and impatience that leads to stresses of all kinds and that’s never a good thing as it’s increasing all the time.
I have observed that we are easily allowing ourselves to be distracted, especially when we are confronted by situations we don’t want to deal with. It’s easy to keep putting off important life changing decisions.
So, you see it’s easier to keep busy when you don’t want to have to deal with anything. Ignoring what is needed to be talked about and addressed may require change.
And we all know change isn’t easy for any of us – we do anything to avoid it and that requires not to stop, not to wait and not to breathe.

Who Are You Really? – by Moon Laramie


When I look in the mirror I see ‘myself’. Or do I? What is it that I actually see? I see my physical form. But is this really ‘me’? My physical body is so impermanent. Can it really be all there is of me? When I talk to other people about what ‘I’ have been doing, it is easy to associate that ‘I’ solely with my identity in this corporeal body. But is that the real me?

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.

Become Aligned with Body, Mind, Heart, Soul – by Rhea Dopmeijer

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.
