It’s that special time of year, where Christmas songs play on the radio, the local TV channels play our favorite old-time movies, and we have party after party of savory treats to look forward to. Wait! Savory treats – isn’t that what we’ve worked all year to avoid, to burn-off, to replace with whole foods prepared with the highest levels of care and consciousness?...

Duality is among the topics we should explore to increase our intuition, our ability to understand and navigate the world. Many yogis and spiritual teachers through the years have said that human beings live in a world of duality...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: As we all know duality, polarity, yin/yang all represent opposites. Sometimes it's a struggle to keep our Ego in check as we walk our spiritual path. While Ego has its place in our lives, it's good to remember that balance is essential. As said by Inanna Moon, "Duality means that we possess both an ego-based self and a higher self (higher consciousness)." Learn some helpful tips on balancing your Ego with your Higher Self.

It’s a little-known secret that, during the first two hours of sleep at night, people reconnect with their soul consciousness. The spirit realms are where most dreams occur throughout the night...
Editor's Note from David Arenson: Walters provides soul guidance and wisdom regarding developing intuition. His advice - Sleep on it! "In a soul-level projection of the future, you see all the threads of interactions with other people and how everything will turn out based upon current trends. This wisdom is then available to your waking state via the power of intuition."
"Consciousness is a state of evolution, there is no end point where you can say, now I’m a conscious parent. I want all parents to understand that when they embark on the journey of consciousness, it’s not necessarily to be absent of unconsciousness. That’s not what consciousness is, consciousness is the ability to become more aware of when we have fallen off track, when we need to shift back into the deepest state of groundedness, when we are being triggered by our past, rather than responding to the present, when we are responding to our own unmet needs rather than responding to a child’s need in the moment..."

This time of year issues a special invitation to enter and engage with dreams. These nightly gifts transform us by expanding consciousness, even when we are unaware of the gift. Consciously engaging with dreams fuels this expansion and creates space for inner harmony and connecting with others. Deep awareness takes root in the personal, touches our relationships, and ripples into the community...
