Many of us have difficulty letting go of the past, and moving on with our lives. For some of us, it may seem down right impossible, and it can have serious consequences to our physical, mental, and emotional well-being...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Part 1 discusses the five hindrances from a Buddhist perspective while Part 2 will discuss how to overcome these obstacles to be more focused in the present moment.
Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: Here's a FUNNY FUNNY video by Mike Jenkins about all our neurotic expectations of enlightenment. I chuckled all the way through. I bet you will too...

J. Stewart Dixon's All Things Healing www.BLUECOLLAR-ENLIGHTENMENT.com series: What enlightenment looks like in ORDINARY FOLKS. Many of my spiritually awakened friends and I are in this category. We do not have the eloquence of Adyashanti, the mass appeal of Eckhart Tolle or the motherly sagacity of Gangaji or Ammachi. We are ordinary, imperfect and quirky human beings and we are spiritually awake. This is what enlightenment looks like in ordinary people and dare I say that this is probably what it will look like in YOU...

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 Eden Kozlowski: I love the sound healing work of Tom Kenyon. He is so distinctive and very deep. Not for everyone. Some of my students get unsettled when listening. For me... his work is a go-to when I want to achieve a very connected, spiritual meditation. So, close your eyes, calm your mind and listen...

I am the mother of a child with special needs. My young teenage daughter was born with pachygyria, which basically means her brain decided to be structurally different from the norm. In the old days she probably would have been labeled "retarded" (what a word, huh?!) and in a sense, that is what her brain did – it didn't advance fully...
Editor's Note from Carol Lawrence & Stacy Toten: Do you have a special needs child? Or do you know anybody else who does? This article is chalked full of wisdom, sensitivity, information, empathy and the most amount of positively driven helpful tools that we've ever read on reducing stress for parents or caregivers or anyone involved on a daily basis who is taking care of special needs children.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: This school's got it going on. Meditation is about doing things differently. Being out of the box. Having fun with life. Watch and just enjoy the funk!

Okay. Let’s talk about what I call transference and what a lot of teachers call transmission. There are two ways I can approach this topic: 1. From a pseudo-scientific hypothetical point of view & 2...
Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: Here's a serious/humorous article about spiritual transmission or transference I wrote a few years ago. Today I boil this whole premise down to just one simple phrase: -LOVE is Contagious-- Enjoy this article...Leave a comment or shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org

People frequently begin meditation in order to find peace, reduce anxiety and quiet their minds. Research tells us that it is a healthy practice with wonderful benefits. Many long term meditators swear by the results. Then why do so many people explore meditation and then quickly give it up? Perhaps because they begin the practice with unrealistic expectations...
