My writing career began over 25 years ago without my being aware of it. My first love and chosen profession was in classical music. After suffering a debilitating injury that forced me to quit performing, I became an on-air host at two classical music radio stations in Southern California.

When you speak to individuals who seem to be happy and excited about their lives, the.. partners they're with, the careers they're in, and the success they've had, words like luck, fate or chance constantly pop into the conversation. You'll hear them remark, "I met my partner by chance." "I'm in this particular career because I just happened to go to this party", ”As fate would have it" or "I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time..."

Food, like movement is a complicated issue. I hope that by this point in your internet-reading career you understand the difference — at least in principle — between whole food and junk food. Fresh, organic, unprocessed foods are now recognized in many circles as superior to their preserved, extended shelf-life, highly processed counterpart...

Modern women in the West are blessed to have more freedom in life than ever. We work hard in the world with career, family and community. We delve deep into spirituality and creative pursuits. We pay attention to our bodies, health and wellbeing. If we really want to, we can pursue our every dream. So how do we create the extra energy needed for all this multi-tasking without burning out and fading away?..
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: Do you multi-task? Do you ever feel like you need more energy to accomplish what you need to do on a day-by-day basis? The Solar Plexus Chakra functions as your energy center - think of the radiant energy of the Sun, which provides energy for all living things on this Earth. This third Chakra is the source of your personal power.

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Shapeshifting is a classic shamanic experience or state or practice. It can happen on many levels, though of course we are always most intrigued by the physical shapeshift. John Perkins has studied and written extensively about shapeshifting, and he has practiced it in amazing and deep ways. In essence, he has gone through an incredible personal shapeshift - a transformation from the inside out - in his career and life - moving from a shady economic terrorist (supported by both corporations and governments) to an incredible teacher and shaman of the art of shapeshifting.
