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: This is a great article for people who like research studies confirming the effectiveness of acupuncture. The researchers in this study used electroacupuncture at a single acupuncture point to demonstrate that acupuncture can shorten the duration of the active phase of the first labor stage.

Editor's Note from Julia Sanfilippo: I LOVE this video! Acupuncture is being offered at a Children's Hospital to be used in conjunction with Western Medicine. The two-month year old, Ricky, in the video has been getting treatments since he was 6 weeks old. How young a person can receive acupuncture is a common question. I always refer to my pediatric acupuncture professor's response, saying that as soon as the baby is born he/she can benefit from acupuncture. I hope this video educates parents that there are natural treatments even for the youngest of patients.
Editor's Note: Ultrasound has become so common with pregnancy, that we don't even think twice about what it could be doing to the growing child. Dr. Mendelsohn discusses some of the key things that ultrasound can interfere with like, damage to the biochemistry of the child, damage to the immune system and delayed maturation of the central nervous system. Very interesting perspective.

In talking with my mentor and nutritionist, Julie Daniluk, I was reminded of the need for a daily meditation to help with stress busting. When I go to my friend’s house and draw spiritual cards, I often get the “meditation” card. When talking to other mentors or leaders in yoga and wellness, they ask if I have a daily meditation practice (knowing I should). Ugh… really?! Meditation again? Sigh. See the thing is, no matter how much I duck, dodge and fight it… meditation will keep being brought to my attention, because it is something that I really need in my life...
