Our memory, though fascinating, can be totally unreliable. As much as you want to retain forever in mind your sweet loving memories – the love-at-first-sight circumstance with your high-school sweetheart, the surprise birthday party a gang of new friends threw for you when you were doing your exchange study in a foreign country...
Editor's Note from Tiffany Ip: You may be one of the many people who have been hurt and believe the painful memories are hard to erased from the brain's blackboard. But the truth is, "the past is just a story we tell ourselves". While memories might be powerful enough to define us, we indeed possess the ability of defining our own memories.

Sometimes I find myself working on a patient that I have not seen in several years. While my hands are gently kneading the muscle tissues and offering pressure along their spine, suddenly my hands become flooded with memories of how this person’s body felt under my hands, years before...
Editor's Note from Carolyn White: How does energy medicine "work?" Is there an energy field composed of information about your past traumas and injuries? Is this the information an energy therapist accesses to facilitate the healing process? Craig Weiner, DC, a health care practitioner for 25 years as a doctor of chiropractic, certified massage therapist and EFT practitioner, explores the potential of accessing this cellular memory - this field of possibilities - that enables an individual opportunities for healing.

Memories of my grandmother Ida's cautious words occasionally play through my mind. "Child, watch your words unless you wanna be creatin' that now!" My grandma may have had an understanding that we create our life situations through our thoughts and words, but I'm not so sure she realized it is possible to undo old beliefs and recreate a new reality...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: What do you believe? And even more important: Do they work for you? Our beliefs have a huge impact on our lives, and they do not always serve us well. Read this inspirational article by Nancy Brady and learn about the power of beliefs and how you can create positive change.

I just love Valentine's Day. I love the color red, I love the fact that it's a reason to celebrate love, and I love that we're allowed to give chocolates, flowers and cards as tokens of our affection for those we love. One of my fondest memories as a little girl was making Valentine's day cards to put in my classmates special Valentine's day envelope. I looked forward to cutting the heart shapes, pasting the hearts on the pretty white doilies, and writing my special note to my friends...
Intuition & Symbols
by Sudha Umashanker
It was a coconut tree that was lovingly planted by my late grandmother decades ago. Back then, Chennai was not chock-a-bloc with houses and with the plot behind our house being vacant it didn’t matter if our tree was close to the compound wall...
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: I'm pleased to introduce Sudha Umashanker to our All Things Healing readers. Sudha is a young journalist from Chennai in India. In addition to writing about important social issues, Sudha is a trained storyteller. Many of her stories, like this one, are drawn from her memories of childhood and family life. They are a reminder of the everyday challenges we meet in life, the events we grieve and the ones we celebrate. In our increasingly urbanised world, this is a story that reminds us that Nature's loss is also our own.

Description: "In Scotland, folk songs serve as memories, of places and the dead who once inhabited them. Exploring the theme of change, When the Song Dies seeks to bring the audience under the captive spell of the old ways...
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: "When the Song Dies" is a short film by Jamie Chambers. Its message is stark and simple -- when the songs and stories are forgotten so dies the culture. Chambers' film explores the meaning and significance of song and story in Scottish culture. A lovely and haunting film.

As with most phobias, the fear of public speaking tends to develop in response to past experiences, either due to a single traumatic event or through gradual conditioning/association. The fear is then compounded by both negative emotions attached to memories of the past and anticipation/expectation of future poor performance, failure and/or ridicule...
