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...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: John, I just dig this article. Thank you for letting us include it here on AllThings. I work with energy and this adds more umppphh to the reality of what I do and the work of many, many others. And, it showcases the tremendous, as you call it "burden," that we carry to live and love well. So, readers... are you up for the call to watch your thoughts with clarity and vision... with depth, vitality and courage AND excitement??!!

From the corners where the silence remains, there came the urgency to go to a mountain top and scream out the whole truth. 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.

We have been in drought conditions inTexas for months now. Our major lake is down over 15 feet. Trees are dying and the bats that are so part of our Being in Austin are at risk of predators as they leave the safety of their home under the bridge downtown to forage for food earlier than usual. 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.

Reiki is Japanese for Universal Life Force or Life Energy. It is a practice of energy healing that requires no prerequisites, no diets, no beliefs, no prayer. Of course the Reiki Master you choose will come with his or her own baggage, beliefs and packaging, so simply choose the one you like and have fun...
Editor's Note: If you're thinking of learning Reiki, this article has some nice thoughts to consider.

Azrael is a Celestial Angelic Being within the Angelic Order known as the Archangels. Archangels are responsible for ministering to humans, considered somewhat like "manager angels," Archangels oversee the responsibilities of Guardian Angels and the other Celestial Light Beings that act as our guardians and guides...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: As we enter June and celebrate summer and continue our Angel series, I'd like to introduce Archangel Sandalphon. In June we celebrate the beginning of summer. Sandalphon is the Archangel of Prayers, Music, Earth and Personal Ascension.

Candles have been being used in churches ever since churches have existed. Church candles are common in worship as well as many other special events and religious holidays celebrated within the church...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: In search of organic candles? Your prayers have been answered. Organic candles, suitable for many religious services and at home meditations, can be found that do not emit toxic fumes or black soot. A nice way to light the way for a few special thoughts and moments.

I have come to see that our yearning for intimacy is the way in which we human beings show ourselves to be most profoundly made in the image of God. Too often our pictures of God distort this essential point. When we think of God as a self-sufficient “first cause”;” when we pray (as in one of those Eucharistic liturgies), “Oh God, you have no need of our prayers,” we are allowing our philosophical minds to betray what our hearts know so indelibly: that God’s yearning for intimacy is the real cause of everything, and the only reality in which our hearts can ultimately find refuge...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault's beautifully articulated article describes how we find true intimacy. She explains, "...that love is an infinite yearning within us..." This article teaches so much about love, God, mysticism, and our own humanity from a modern day mystic's point of view. (This is part 1 of 2).
