a letter from Auriol de Smidt to Michael Williams
Here is a true story for you:
When I was thirteen my mother, a nurse, found herself nursing me in a little country hospital in Africa, with a very serious attack of typhoid fever. No antibiotics at that time...
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Over the past 9 months, I struggled with an unexpected illness. Fortunately, I received the treatment I needed, have recovered, and am feeling much better thanks to the many prayers and blessings sent to me by family and friends—near and far. Together with the medical treatment I received, this positive energy, I believe, contributed to my healing.
I hope Auriol's story brings some of its blessing to you.

As the world becomes more and more complicated, our pasts catch up with our present, and both interfere with our future, wouldn't it be nice to clear it all away and focus on what is truly important to you?...
Editor's Note from Melanie Channell: Serenity Vibration Healing is a form of simple prayer that can assist you in clearing negative experiences from your past and in letting go of limiting beliefs and negative vibrations. This can free your personal energy, empowering you to live your best life now and take charge of your future.

I was raised a Christian and even went to Catholic school until the sixth grade. When my spiritual life began to unfold, many of my experiences came through a more Eastern approach or Hindu philosophy and imagery, especially those of the Kundalini Shakti and Divine Mother...
Editor's Note from Natalie Jovanic: Do you sometimes struggle with spirituality and religion? Are you confused by the meaning of Shakti, Kundalini and Holy Spirit? A healer once gave me a prayer using the Christian names. I looked at her with huge eyes because I couldn't connect with them at all. She told me that I could just exchange them with the buddhist counterpart. That made it easier for me to use them. Read this article and find out more about how everything is connected. In the end, what matters is that you create your connection with spirit and use names that feel right for you.

Love is risky. To love is to move into danger-because you cannot control it, it is not safe. It is not within your hands. It is unpredictable...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: What better intention for 2014 then to love boldly? Osho looks at our society's focus on the head instead of the heart and inspires us to nurture our children's ability to love first, think second.

In his foreword to the German edition, von Balthasar writes: “A thinking, praying Christian of unmistakable purity reveals to us to symbols of Christian Hermeticism in its various levels of mysticism, gnosis, and magic, taking in also the Cabbala and certain elements of astrology and alchemy..."
Editor's Note: A review of an amazing book by an amazing priest. Fr. Keating is the originator of the Centering Prayer meditation, which has deepened the spiritual practice of many people. The book itself (written anonymously and translated into English) has another interesting fan, the late Pope John Paul II.
