Wholistic Gaia science is not only a foundational world view for the investigation of "the details of how all organisms exchange gases and other chemical compounds with the water, atmosphere and soils of Earth." But, from a cultural standpoint, what I am seeing is that Gaia is also a foundation for a planetary religion, a benevolent new way of living with and revering the Earth. Gaia shows us the way to create evolutionary new habitats so that we have not only the scientific technology, but the philosophy to peacefully penetrate deeper into the mysteries of the Universe using both science and art.

"I would urge everyone who wishes to share their passions with children to explore or at least entertain the ideas that we each have a soul that is connected to all things. ~ Simon Paul Harrison ~ The Truly Alive Child
"If we want children to grow up experiencing deep peace, it really does not work to continually subject them to images of violence. I am simply making an observation of the outcomes that arise from certain choices and actions." ~ Simon Paul Harrison

The Hindus bathe in the Ganges. The Jews go to the Mikveh. The Catholics dip their hand in holy water and make the sign of the cross. The Christians-both Protestant and Catholic-baptize. The Native Americans go to the sweat lodge. The Turks go to the Hammam. The Russians go to their bathhouse. We all understand, on some level, the sacred power of water...
Editor´s Note from Tina Rayner: Through his blog on MyPeaceTV.com, David Burnett beautifully weaves together historical proof to remind us of the sameness of our basic human foundation, and to prove that the borders we create between cities, countries, nations and individuals are all illusions as really, our foundation is unity.

More and more, I have come to believe that genuine healing occurs in the interface of psyche and spirit, and in facilitating access to that divine spark in each person that I consider to be the soul. As C. G.Jung writes in Psychology and the East, "The soul is assuredly...the radiant Godhead itself." (1978, p. 63). In my self-work and in my work with my clients, I am always seeking the attunement of spirit, psyche and soul. Indeed, it seems it is this sense of wholeness that brings about inner peace and deep well-being...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: What do you do to find your soul? Even though I am a writer, I found my soul when I started to paint again. I believe that we find true healing if we allow us to connect with our soul. Read this article by Nancy Weiss and find out more about it.

She shares how important it is to forgive ourselves and others to allow more love into our lives.
Intuition & Symbols

Hypnosis happens when we daydream, or when we “go into trance” where the conscious mind switches off for a while and allows that peaceful state of just being. It’s those unconscious thoughts that relay messages, the thoughts that ‘pop up’, as we leave the house: “is the iron switched off, have I locked the back door?...”
Editor's Note: I first met Ann through a friend of mine who was interested in any technique to quieten her mind in order to take advantage of her developing intuition. Ann suggested self hypnosis as a way of 'removing' her conscious mind for a moment or two - allowing my friend's intuition to shine through. You too, can benefit from self hypnosis if you find your analytical mind is 'too' powerful at times, more so when reading tarot, number, interpreting dreams, etc.
