What makes us human - Is it our intelligence, our physical bodies, our hearts?
No doubt, it is a combination of them all.
United, we share some common denominators – male or female (or something in between) – we all inhabit human bodies with similar functions and needs. Yet, we are way beyond whatever we imagine ourselves to be...
Editor's Note from David Starlight: What's holding you back from giving and receiving love from an open HEART? I've always believed that all healing ultimately comes from God, and it is a process of cleansing away layers of fear and doubt to uncover the perfect soul inside. The soul is already perfect and whole as it is. The fountain of love is within our hearts - listen to the wisdom of the heart, and one gains access to infinite realms of possibility. Then, discover the river of love baby meditation - a magical and alchemical silent open-eyed meditation.
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: It's never too early to begin nourishing your child. Ayurveda recommends abhyanga oil massage to protect against Vata early on, even for babies! This detailed video reviews how to massage an infant with specific attention to the stroke types, start times and environment (warm and comfortable). Abhyanga allows the nourishing oil to lubricate the skin, muscles and joints, calms the nervous system and encourages restful sleep. *Note that they are using organic coconut oil, which is fine during summertime, but luke warm sesame oil is best thoroughout the rest of the year when it is cold, to encourage ciruclation. Enjoy this wonderful practice with your baby and the beautiful bond it creates. Namaste.

To be or not to be, is that not the essential question? Or maybe it’s: to become or not to become. Or perhaps Carl Sandberg’s question, “Have I, have you, been too silent? Is there an easy crime of silence?”
Either way, this article will change you. My advice to you, here at the outset, is to ask yourself: am I courageous enough to change. If the answer is “no,” then stop reading. If the answer is “yes,” then take everything you’ve been conditioned, brainwashed and spoon-fed into believing and toss it out the window, along with the baby and the bathwater...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: If you are stuck, complacent, uninspired, lacking in gratefulness or simply in dire need of change...read on. And then go for it!

Since having a baby, I’m increasingly grateful that my husband and I are so aligned in our values—including how we live, speak, and relate with our daughter. We have both been intuitive since we were 14, and meditating or chanting since our 20’s...
Editor's Note from Lisa Phoenix: This article by Ann O'Brien offers an amazing approach as well as great communication guidelines if you are a new parent or if you are looking to deepen your communication skills on an intuitive level with a child of any age. We need to learn to “listen” to our children but also learn to “trust” what we are intuitively receiving from them as well.
