Soil is vital to the health of both people and the planet. Unfortunately, it is often the most overlooked of all agricultural inputs. The U.N. General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils (IYS) to increase awareness and understanding of the many important roles of soil...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The soil; it's all about the soil. Where we plant our seeds determines how we live. It is a rule that runs literally and metaphorically in our crops, our lives, and our intentions. Without a solid foundation, what can grow? Well?

Outside the realm of medical science lay a sea of sites regarded by many as capable of miraculously healing the ill and injured. Some may be affiliated with specific faiths; some may open their metaphorical doors to all peoples. Some may date back to ancient times; some may have only acquired their seemingly magical abilities in modern times. The one thing they have in common, however, is their ability to entice visitors of all types to come see for themselves whether or not these allegedly altruistic energies meet their needs...

An ideomotor signal is way to communicate non-verbally.
Ideomotor techniques are powerful for a number of reasons. Since the unconscious mind functions on more of a metaphorical level, a level dealing with imagery and imagination rather than logic, methods that use the body and emotions rather than our verbal skills are highly effective in reaching that part the mind...

If you are reading this, you undoubtedly recognize the importance of dreams. They are not simply random neurons firing and haphazardly replaying the events of the day. Our dreams have something to tell us! Sometimes it is challenging to gauge the meaning of our dreams because they often speak metaphorically or in puns...
Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Sometimes our lives get very busy and we may remember our dreams, we may even record them, but we may not always take the time to sit with their meaning and messages for us. Here is a cautionary tale of what could happen if we don't pay attention to our dreams' wisdom and guidance.
Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski, An interesting 11 minutes about the "longevity revolution" and defining a new metaphor for aging.

Healing stories can change the way we see our lives and the world. Using metaphor and imagery, stories offer healing and growth to everyone - those who tell them and those who listen. They connect us to each other and help us find meaning as we imagine new possibilities and find hope...
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Hank Wesselman recounts his first meeting with Hawaiian shaman Hale Makua, the wisdom he learned that day, and the relevancy of that wisdom to the current state of our world. In the metaphor he uses, we each have a bowl filled with varying amounts of light. Unfortunately, the men who predominantly rule this planet have very little light left in their bowls. We are all challenged to bring more light into our bowls and into our lives. See a related article here.

The word Pilgrimage was made even more impactful to me with the book I just finished reading, "Off the Road" about a modern-day walk down the Pilgrim's Route into Spain. The author's pilgrimage reminds me how much alike our money life is to the deeply moving experience one gets on a walking or metaphorical pilgrimage. Both have their struggles, delights, confusion and incredible openings...
Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Joan Silva describes our emotional attachments to money and offers three tips to transform our relationship with money. She takes us on a journey in order to see money from a higher perspective and gives us a deeper understanding of its sacredness. She reminds us that money does not necessarily make us feel happy or improve our self-esteem. Her pilgrimage metaphor describes important issues we must all address. The journey is worth the reward!
