We choose our screensavers as tools for transmutation. They transmute our being and raise our vibrations a little higher by evoking fond memories or engaging our hopes and dreams. They help us reconnect to people, places and feelings that bring us joy. They are our modern-day tarot cards...

Writing & Poetry Therapy
by M.J. Plaster
Nothing turns a commonplace, ho-hum room into a radiant, inviting setting faster than the flicker of a few ordinary candles scattered strategically throughout the room. Add scented candles and you can quickly evoke childhood memories, transport your imagination to a tropical island, or infuse the room with the crisp scent of a pine forest. Aromatherapy candles add yet another dimension to the equation...

From imaginary friends to vivid memories of other lifetimes, many children experience profound and real encounters with the unseen or seemingly inexplicable world of spirit.

Remembering allows them to hold on to experiences and people so that they are never forgotten.
Look to the sign of Cancer, the Moon and 4th house to understand the past, emotional ties and relationship with family.
