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...

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. June earth is a very fertile, buzzing, humming and blooming month and Sandalphon helps remind us of our connection to Heaven and Earth.

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).

There has been much discussion recently about the power of prayer. I think it is time. It is time to let the proverbial “cat out of the bag”. It is time for us to own how real prayer is...
Editor's Note from Sue Meyn: This is a gentle piece that gives you some very basic ideas about using journaling as prayer. In my own life I've found journaling to be a big part of my spiritual life. I hope you find this to be of interest to you.
