The you that you say you are is a story that no one but you could have written. Family, culture, conditions, time and space influence your story, but it is your story and it can never belong to anyone else. Your story is filled with triumphs, victories, wins and losses...

Snowdrops and crocus flowers herald the spring. And if you look in between them, with luck, you’ll see a bright green creeping plant low to the ground with little white starry flowers: chickweed, a good friend of mine...
Editor's Note from Leigh Glenn: The chickweed has returned here in Maryland after a summer (and fall) siesta. There may not be enough to pick for tea or fresh-plant tincture, but there's plenty to add to salads. And in the spirit of setting health-related intentions for 2012, check out Susun Weed's new book, Down There: Sexual and Reproductive Health The Wise Woman Way.

Whether you agree with American foreign policy or not, it’s difficult to imagine disagreement over the fact that soldiers returning from war should be given the best possible care to recover from physical and psychological injuries incurred in military service...
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shamanism is a broad practice of accessing knowledge and healing from non-physical intelligent sources - spirits. There are many ways to connect with spirits, and some use psycho-active substances - plant spirit medicine - to make the connection. This article presents one of those ways. I do not have direct knowledge of Iboga, but I do know that the traumas suffered by soldiers in war time are treatable by many forms of shamanic healing - with and without the ingestion of plant spirit medicine.

What do we mean by diet roller coaster and how do we get off of it?
Have you ever forced your weight down, then have it creep back up, force your weight down again, then watch it creep back up?...
Editor's Note from Neda Smith: It seems like every time you turn around there is a new diet. And your friend or family member is trying it out, thinking this just might be the diet to help them lose the unwanted weight. But if there was a way to get off of the roller coaster ride? What if there was a way to keep you nourished and balanced without deprivation? Katharine Pike is introducing us nourishment through our 5 senses.

We are having great difficulty with our 13-year-old son. He is extremely rude, rebellious, hyperactive and attention seeking! It has intensified since November of 2012. I am feeling exhausted by his constant refusal to merge with the family, and am wondering what we can approach from our side, as far as dynamics in the astrology of parent-child goes...

You tell stories. You believe them.
They are just stories you have created, and will continue to create, unless you become "aware" (conscious) or awakened...
Editor´s Note from David Arenson: For too long the traditional channels of communication have made us think and feel small. This has served their motive to control us and keep us subservient. So long as you believe yourself small, you seek their product to improve your life. Now time's are changing. We are embarking on a new age.
This is our time. Our time to choose. Our time to flourish. Our time to take responsibility for our lives and our beloved planet.
2012 has been an intense. I would like to thank all our faithful readers personally for all their attention and support. I am looking forward to engaging with you more in 2013! Travel safely...
