"Love is the face and body of the Universe. It is the connective tissue of the universe, the stuff of which we are made. Love is the experience of being whole and connected to Universal Divinity...


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: If you are not familiar with Barabara Brennan and her masterful work you are missing out. Her groundbreaking work has been going on for over 20+ years. She's a masterful healer and teaches others how to do the same. We hand picked this quote from her book Hands Of Light A Guide To Healing Through The Human Energy Field. We originally shared it with our parenting community on our Intentional Conscious Parenting blog. It was a huge hit so we thought you'd enjoy it. This book is a must have for every home library.

Editor's Note: This is a sweet video demonstrating the type of authentic or original play we as humans are primed for and crave. I enjoy this reminder that our children thrill when parental connection and hugs come through this playful and gentle form of roughousing that is inherently natural and healing.

“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.”

Do you know the secret to a better marriage? Do you know the best way to connect with your children...

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: LISTEN, no wait! Listen! Are you listening? Well this article will tell you a thing or two about listening. The statistics are eye opening. We hope you will spend a few minutes and read Betsy Henry's excellent article on learning secrets to better relationships.

Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Grab the kids and let's see if you can sit through this fun kids video without tapping your foot and smiling.

by Sharon Ballantine

The Law of Attraction doesn't necessarily deliver in a tit–for-tat manner. This can be a challenging concept for people to grasp, but very important, especially when we are teaching our children about The Law and how to apply it in their lives.


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: We have been writing as friends for several years now. Law of attraction is one of our favorite topics. We came across Sharon Ballantine who is a writer in the conscious parenting field. She graciously wrote an original article on this subject just for our parenting audience at All Things Healing. Enjoy!


Family & Parenting

by L.R. Knost

It’s been said that it takes ten positives to negate a negative, but the reality most experience is that no amount of positives can fully erase a negative. While we may be able to forgive and move on, forgetting just isn’t a possibility. Though we certainly do have the ability to control our reactions when confronted with criticism...


Editor's Note: L.R. Knost shares a personal story of how her uncle's playful teasing when she was a child, ultimately resulted in a negative belief about herself that she carried for years and years. L.R. reminds us that what we say to a child really matters and when we realize we've said something hurtful, the best thing we can do is acknowledge it by apologizing.


Family & Parenting


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence and Stacy Toten: Everything is energy. Food carries it's own vibrations and frequencies. Certain foods vibrate at a higher frequency than others. For example a Twinkie is all processed and has no nutritional value. A carrot picked fresh from the garden is full of live energy and carries a higher vibration. Choose wisely.

A little girl who just became a big sister, is found in the baby’s room, leaning over the baby’s bassinet.  She is overheard asking the baby in a whisper, “Tell me what God is like, I’m starting to forget...”


Editor's Note: This article affected me greatly. The word honor was what struck me most. Honoring our children's feelings as wisdom and listening to their instincts is important. This article offers great steps to help guide you on nurturing your child's inner voice.

Editor's Note: Another hilarious installment of the series. These keep me laughing so hard!

ATH Co-Editor of Meditation

Last year I wrote a story for All Things Healing reviewing the nutritional impact of a lunch served at my daughter’s public school. Ahhh, another season has come and gone, and I feel it’s time to check in… to see if there has been some change…


Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Eden wrote a follow up article regarding the lunches schools are serving in our country to our children to this very day. This new article is a follow up to her original article a year ago and it's worth the few minutes it takes to read it. This is a call to action to all parents, an intervention is desperately needed. We recommend you go to the schools, witness the school lunches with your own eyes. It will be a real eye opener. We encourage you to speak up, use your voice, talk to those in charge, and take a look at the websites she's recommended. Your voice is needed in the fight for healthy food for all of our children. It's all of our futures. Thank you Eden, once again for bringing this to all of our attention.  See Part 1

Editor's Note: A delightful project to create with your children that would be fantastic for the Halloween celebrations coming up. Nothing says fun like glow sticks and glitter!


Family & Parenting

by Shelly Phillips

Thinking back to all the times when I was in a classroom or a house full of kids who were all running around and screaming their little heads off I suddenly remembered the one thing that turned yelling into quiet voices. I whispered...


Editor's Note: A great technique to use when you want to get your child's attention, especially when the noise level is high. I have used this technique in the classroom and it's amazing how quickly the room falls silent so that everyone can hear what you are saying.

A Missing Key to Building Childrens Self-Esteem

by Sylvia Poareo

A client asks, “How can I help my child have good self esteem, when I don’t?”

The fact that she can recognize that this is a problem is the first step!  So often, parents, particularly those that have personal histories to heal, focus intensely on helping their children to have the confidence they don’t.  However, we cannot teach self-esteem.
