Holiday Rules by Julie Matheson
Tensions were often high in our family at the holidays. Even when the day seemed fine going into it there could be a heavy feeling lingering in the air causing us to await something to fall apart. The situation-upset might be a new twist every year but the energy was old and familiar.
My dad’s dad died when he was 2 years old. He and his younger brother grew up poor, living without many creature comforts. In answer to that, my dad became a very hard worker and consequently a very good provider.
New Pets for Christmas by Shirley Scott
Pets are cute under the tree but that doesn’t mean they make good gifts. There is an enormous responsibility in caring for pets as well as a life-long commitment.
Pets cost money. The estimated cost per year for a cat is $780 and $16,800 over a life time and dogs can be $1,570 a year and $22,000 up to $82,900 over their life time.
You need to have time and space for a new pet. People lose interest when the cute little puppy or kitten grow into an adult....  
Difficulty with Concentration by Charles Lightwalker
Difficulty concentrating may be a normal periodic and common occurrence. Concentration difficulties can be related to difficulty staying awake, impulsiveness, intrusive thoughts of concern, over-activity, or inattention. They can be caused by medical conditions, cognitive or psychological problems, or may be related to sleep disorders, stress, tiredness, medications, alcohol or drug use.

Hospital staff - Here is help for your mental anguish by Mark Cook, ART(Regd)
I want to take this time to thank all the nurses, doctors and other hospital staff going into the third year of the Covid-19 pandemic. You are heroes. I want to thank you for your dedication, service and sacrifice every day. I read/listen with a sad heart about your emotional plight of dealing with the mental anguish of Idaho politicians making health decisions that are harmful to getting the pandemic under control and the rude, nasty people you are forced to deal with as a result.
The idea occurred to me that one of the most effective “natural cures” with a track record of almost 90 years, Bach Flower Remedies, would be so helpful to the mental trauma you and your colleagues are experiencing...

November 2021 Featured Articles

The inspiration of great principles are sorely needed now by many people feeling discouraged. If we want to kindle the imagination and rouse the spirit, we must get back to spiritual principles.
This is why I write a “Spiritual Digest” found on my website. It is why I follow a calling to help create a new way of life through guidance that begins with relating lessons for individual regeneration. You may have heard this before or you’re hearing it clearly for the first time, as it is a significant spiritual truth in need of sharing.  
Whatever our state of health and wellbeing, however hard we strive for greater wellness we might not realize we are neglecting our spiritual health. We may need to treat a spiritual illness.
Not long ago I received a message in my dream state. A message about death. Death can be a spiritual illness. I understood that my unconscious was telling me to explore the relationship between illness and the type of death we experience when we feel drained of joy, vitality and enthusiasm for life.
Re-Birthing Through Gratitude by Geri Habstritt
The self realization process is one of constant rebirthing. Life will often hand you challenges in which you will go through a forced rebirth, never fun but most always worth it. You can follow your dreams and take action steps to make them happen. This will initiate a natural rebirth or you can call on the energy of gratitude. Gratitude seems so simple and cliche yet it is remarkably effective.
Years ago, I completed a challenging 7-year divorce in which I ended up momentarily losing almost everything including my children, friends, money and life as I knew it. I hit rock bottom. I couldn’t see or feel....
Finding Balance amidst Chaos, division, confusion and sadness by Victoria Savage RN
Feeling as though you’re in a constant state of recalibration and shifting? Are you up..then down…then back up all in a space of a few hours?
Or maybe more like a rag doll put through the washing machine spin cycle…all rung out?
Are increased fatigue, increased pain, mood swings, sleep deprivation and anxiety constant for you these days?
It sounds a bit like being pregnant doesn’t it?

October 2021 Featured Articles

I notice time and again as therapy clients come in week after week that there will often be a similar theme throughout the week. The issues person-to-person may be very different but one similar component will stand out to me.
This past week it was the question – does this person before me fully understand the choice they have when it comes to enjoying deeper peace? In other words, do they realize they can choose peace no matter what is going on? Or, has so much happened in life they no longer think they have a choice about the level of peace with which they walk through life?
It shouldn’t be about black or white, brown or yellow.
It shouldn’t be about Democrat or Republican.
It shouldn’t be about being vaccinate or unvaccinated.
It shouldn’t be about who’s right or who’s wrong.
It shouldn’t be about who won and who lost.
Every Experience is an Opportunity by Christina Grant, PhD
Recently I had worked myself into a fury over a neighboring dog that barks incessantly at random times during the day. I allowed the irritating yap to grate on my nerves to the point that I wanted to scream out, “STFU!” I also made up all kinds of stories about the “irresponsible” owners of this dog. How could they let it bark for hours on end? How could they not take better care of it? What kind of people would let a dog disturb the neighborhood in such a way? What is wrong with these people? Grrrrrr!!!

Great Time To Be Alive! by Geri Habstritt
You’re probably saying “how can this be?” I say, “what side of the yin/yang symbol are you living on?” Both sides exist. It’s a matter of what has your attention and where is your consciousness? It’s all available. We live in a world of polarity and choices. We chose this as it offers us the greatest opportunity to expand consciousness and remember who we are through the matrix.
ALL exists on this great planet. You can be fully immersed in fear, pain, anger, doubt, victim consciousness, peace, love, joy or even bliss. Because the energy presently is so magnified....
How to See an Aura, and What Auric Colors Mean by Terri Ireland
What exactly is an aura? It is an electromagnetic field that surrounds all living things, and it can be seen, felt, or sensed. Auras can reveal a person’s emotional well-being as well as their physical state of health. There are many ways of seeing auras, this is just one method.
Some sources say that when reading auras it is best to have a high contrast background, either very dark or white. The aura is most easily seen around a person’s head. To see yours, your own hand will work just fine. Place your hand at eye level....

Lately I’ve encountered more people than usual who want to be peaceful in the midst of ongoing stressors and uncertainty. It’s absolutely possible to cultivate peace, and it can help others survive these unprecedented times too.
 When I think of maintaining calm these days, I first think about avoiding mainstream news. Never before have I been so aware of how anxiety-inducing it is. I’m reminded of something Buddhist monk and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh said about the hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese people who escaped Vietnam on boats after the war ended in the mid-1970s.

Two facts:
1. You can not be truly happy and fulfilled living your life for someone else.
2. You can not be truly content and at peace being someone that you are not.
For years, or perhaps, for a lifetime, many of us have lived our lives trying to please others: Our parents, our family, our teachers, our co-workers, our neighbors, and even strangers. We try so hard to fit in to the norms of society. We act in such a way so people will....
One year ago this week, we were on a camping trip through Idaho, Utah and Montana, and I had been annoyingly waking up each day with hives. I knew this, for me, was due to a weak heart. Exercise really isn’t an option for me. I have to do it. I have to keep my heart strong or, as I have learned, I get hives. When my heart is strong, no hives and all is well. It’s a pretty simple equation.
My daily workout, which consisted of jumping rope (5 sets of 100 reps), 30 pushups, five arm exercises, and a 3-minute floor routine doing leg circles, had become erratic. Sometimes I’d skip a day, sometimes two. I love this workout because....
Decisions Made on Assumptions by Badeish Lange
Don Miguel, who wrote the book, The Four Agreements said, “The problem with making assumptions is that we believe they are the truth. We would swear they are real!” We make an assumption, we misunderstand, we take it personally, and we end up creating a drama for nothing.
We base personal and business decisions on assumptions all the time. Example: Wall Street and the entire banking environment are based on assumptions from tips and rumors. Example: We go about our daily business assuming government does not have to be watched.

Garnet is known for recognizing prosperity in one’s life. It may resonate with the first chakra and help to bring earth’s loving energy up through a person’s energy centers. This is known as promoting kundalini energy flow. Kundalini is a type of experience within the Hindu tradition. When awakened, Kundalini is described as rising up from the first chakra along the spine to the top of the head. The progress of Kundalini through the different chakras is believed to achieve different levels of awakening and a mystical experience.
Our world is changing. Our “normal” routines, our lives have begun to adjust and shift. We must realize there is no way back to “normal” as it was. So traditional ways are no longer possible for successfully managing the challenges we face, such as social chaos, climate change, economic uncertainty, pandemics and more.
The time for endless debates on issues is over. We need to act now, we need to move forward with a new perspective, gain new insights and wisdom, and identify visionary solutions. We must be actively promoting change and transformation.
A recent study has proven that cities with 5G sWTF’s (Small Wireless Telecommunication Facilities) had a 79% increase in Covid infections, and a 94% higher death rate per million, than cities that did not. With or without Covid 19, 5G is going to be a disaster. Here is what you need to know.
5G is not about making Cell phone calls better. 5G is for “Information services”, (think broadband data, emails, downloading movies, etc.) and falls under title 1 of the FCC code.

Nature Provides the Fun  by Alex Francis ~ Manager at Wild Gemstones
Gazing at the delicate petals of a fragrant summer flower, one can’t help but be filled with wonder. It isn’t necessarily the science of flora reproduction or pollinator scavenging that causes one to feel so captivated. Nor is it necessarily the millions of years-old history of blooming evolution that has outlasted multiple mass extinction events on our planet. The sheer magic that happens at the very core of our existential awareness is due to something much simpler, requiring very little study or in-depth analysis. The fantastic power of flowers is that they hold....

The Positive Entry of Jupiter into Pisces by Stephanie Telesco
We open June, just having entered the 2nd Mercury Retrograde period of 2021. As noted in last month’s column, this is a time to attend to the “Re’s” of our world – reconsider, recreate, reinvent, reflect until June 22nd when Mercury will go direct. Then, what we have discovered & retooled in the weeks before can be applied to our lives. We are ready to move forward.
Magic Ahead!!
Acidic Body. Every client we have had over the last 12 years has tested Acidic. Drinking alkaline water alone is not going to change it. Eating raw fruits and vegetables can.
Fungus/Yeast/Candida. If you have heavy metals, you have yeast. The biggest contributor to yeast is those Silver and Gold Amalgam fillings. Yeast will prevent mercury from converting to Methyl mercury which is worse. Yeast, however needs sugar to survive. Your body will....

How do you get out of your own way so you can receive all that you are calling in, be the person you know you came here to be and live in the spaciousness and freedom of your soul’s energy? The answer lies within your intention, your ability to trust your soul’s guidance and to relax your ego enough so that you don’t self sabotage.
The ego has been referred to as a “sly pirate”. It masquerades itself as the true you and much of the time you can’t tell whether it’s your soul that is guiding or the unhealed inner child that is afraid. The ego is directly connected....
In todays complicated society, there are two primary approaches to dealing with daily life, social media, our jobs, school and relationships.
These two approaches are:
1. Reactive approach- this is where our behavior is modified much like Pavlov’s dog (with positive reinforcement), or modified through fear-based tactics (often referred to as propaganda inundation). Our decisions are based upon these modifications.
2. Creative approach- making decisions based upon calm, centered and grounded observations, and the decisions that come from that basis.
These approaches are compounded by the effect they have upon our biological and emotional conditions. Living in fear base results in...
How Often Should You Trust Your Intuition? by Julie Matheson
Intuition is a big part of my life. I believe the more I listen to it, the more it talks to me. Conversely, I worry that when I don’t listen to it, my intuition might stop talking to me. I believe the more I tune into it the more it honors me with the information it has.
The catch is, intuition can only communicate with me when I listen to it. It can send me messages but until I stop, and register, “Oh this is my intuition. I need to listen right now” the voice gets ignored and the message goes unheard and opportunities get missed.
What is intuition really? I define it simply as a higher knowing from a higher, all encompassing...

Mobile Phone Addiction or Cell Phone Addiction is a new addiction for our modern times. Cell phones dominate the modern world. Cell phones are multifunctional devices. They act as phone, camera, game station, computer, video recorder and player, t.v., book, dictionary, map, GPS guide, calculator, watch timer, alarm, appointment book and more. The cell phone has become a powerful tool that makes some people feel it is indispensable. It is easy for some people to feel “lost” when the phone is not handy. There’s no doubt that excessive cell phone use is a problem, especially....
On the path of spiritual awakening the biggest obstacle for me, my fellow travelers and my clients have had to overcome is self doubt. As a child we are so clear at knowing what is best for us, which way to go, what is truth and what is a lie. Young children can read energy and determine truth from falsehood very quickly. Then the child begins to take on the beliefs of the parents, teachers, cultures, community, doctors and so-called authorities and they lose their innate knowing in themselves and give their power/trust over to others. Gradually a life is lived being dependent on the advice of others who are operating on a small percentage of truth themselves.
Seven Ways to Achieve Balance this Spring by Nancy Yearout
Spring is a time of growth, of new beginnings! The time of year when the flowers bloom and the rains wash away the old and reveal the new. Recent days have shown signs of Spring as the daffodils and the tulips are peaking their heads up towards the sun for their natural nourishment of growth and balance.
We humans are the same. We need certain things to help us grow and feel renewed. And most importantly a sense of balance in our lives.
As the weather warms and the days grow longer, we feel a sense of renewal. Some call it Spring Fever!

I don’t have enough fingers and toes to recount the times throughout adolescence my mom prodded me: “Why don’t you try journaling? Someday you’ll want to remember everything you did when you were younger.”
I’d retort, “Why would I do that? Shouldn’t I spend more time living my experiences and less time writing them down?”
Sometimes, to appease momma, I’d get a fresh book and write for a few days before tiring of it.
“It’s just not for me.”
And it wasn’t. Until I realized I was going about it all wrong.
How to Live a More Courageous Life by Kate Swoboda
On any given day, many of us wrestle with our fears. We might be contemplating a career change, telling someone we love them, or wanting to speak up for what’s right when we see injustice. But a voice within us pipes up saying that there’s no point, or that we aren’t really capable of creating the life or world we desire.
Whether you call it “fear” or some other name—anxiety, stress, discomfort, life challenges—the cycle often plays out in the same way. We have a desire for change, but our fear of what might happen or the worry that we are somehow not enough can keep us stuck.
In my new book, The Courage Habit, I argue that when it comes to dealing with fear, we often....
Joanne Wickenburg wrote insightfully in her article, “Astrology and the Seasons”, “It is from the seasonal changes created by the Sun’s movement through the Tropical Zodiac that early observers of the heavens began to note the correlating agricultural change and even human characteristics of people born at different times throughout the year. These are what we call the Sun signs.”
She continues: “The first day of spring is experienced when the Sun’s pathway meets the celestial equator, on that day, the first day of Aries begins. ……It is interesting to view the signs from a “seasonal” perspective to see how we live out or demonstrate the purpose of each season....
Our niece has a rescue-dog named Jack. Jack was neglected and abused before he came to live with her. Although she has had him about five years, he still cowers and does a timid, army-crawl toward her when she approaches him. Even though she is consistently kind to him he still isn’t completely sure that he can trust her.
Shock and trauma is like this. The effects from previous traumatic experiences remain in our cellular and emotional memory long after an incident happens. When a shocking event occurs, trapped emotional memory lies in waiting, unprocessed. It can then be re-triggered when a similar shocking event occurs. It’s true with both animals and humans.
As in the case of Jack, above, it can limit one’s perception of reality all the time, or in other cases, only when triggered. This is because....

2021, The Year of Thrive or Dive by Geri Habstritt
2021 is the year of the 5, which in ascended numerology, means Truth Revealed. Whatever is out of alignment with your innate truth will be up for healing. The throat and back of neck are the areas that will be most affected by this energy. It takes some awareness, but notice how your throat feels as you are getting ready to speak your truth or as you are swallowing someone else’s truth. Are your actions in alignment with what you know to be true? For example, I recently visited someone who was watching a show on the energy, messages and gifts.....

The Power of Creative Visualization by Daka Jag™
 Creative visualization is using the power of your mind and imagination to create what you want in life.  It is the ability to create an idea, a mental picture, or a feeling.  You can indeed learn to use your creative imagination in a more conscious way, using this power to truly attain what you want most in life.
You can work on any level, your goal may be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.  All will have results.  For example, let us say you are unhappy with your physical health.  You can begin by imagining the improvements you desire, an improved blood pressure, an improved aerobic ability, an increase in strength and flexibility, a reduction in weight.  You begin by relaxing....

All of the media.

That agenda is to keep you in fear so they can direct your reactions to whatever their platform is. All this fear is circulating around each of us and we each share ours with the world around us and this expands because WE ARE ALL CONNECTED!!

Protection from the Pandemics with Complementary Care by Charles Lightwalker
Pandemics have repeatedly wiped out large numbers of the human population. History shows us the evidence.
About five thousand years ago, a epidemic wiped out a pre-historic village in China. The bodies of the dead were stuffed inside a house that was later burned down. All ages of people were found inside the house from babies to senior citizens. The archaeological site is now called “Hamin Mangha” and is famous in northeastern China. The epidemic happened so fast there was no time for proper burials and the site was not inhabited again.
The 2009 swine flu pandemic was caused by a new strain of H1N1 flu, that originated in Mexico in the spring of 2009 before spreading to the rest of the world. In one year, the flu virus infected as many as 1.4 Billion people....

Intuitive Static by Charles Lightwalker
We all can have distortion or static on our intuitive channel. They can be outside influences or internal influences. Outside disruptions can be caused by the conversation we had with our spouse, child, parent, boss, coworker, or client, the movie we just watched, the television shows we watch. Internally, they are created by what we are thinking moment to moment, our beliefs, habits and patterns.
