We have been told time and time again that it is better to give than to receive, but at the same time we are to be in a state of gratitude. So does that mean we are to be grateful only for giving? This is very confusing and usually makes many of us great givers, lousy at receiving, but yet we try to be in a state of gratitude, all at the same time...
A Note from Editor, Sherri Carter: How comfortable are you at saying thank you? What about when someone offers you a compliment? Being able to say thank you is powerful! Remember, if the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is ‘thank you’, it will be enough.

Modern science advocates that the subconscious brain is capable of processing some 20,000,000 environmental stimuli per second, compared to the conscious brain, which may struggle with as few as 40 processes per second. One could believe it is this incredible processing power of the subconscious mind that explains why people experience good results from techniques such as “positive thinking”, meditation and or prayer...

I sent out a prayer to God, to the universe - “It’s too painful, I can’t take it!” - and she came to me, the power of my mind, the energy of the universe, an angel of God in blue, like the Good Fairy in the Wizard of Oz, waving a wand...
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In this story, therapist Jan Mullen tells the story of a child who has a vision of a “Good Fairy” who comes and helps her deal with her pain.

In the light of day they are found flying out to eat, which they've never done before as the bugs are fewer and the bats need to go farther and farther away, as the hawks watch on...
Editor's Note from Shoshana Avree: Please feel free to pass this around and send a prayer our way of gratitude for water on the planet. Thank you.
