Astrology

by Tasara

For some of us, the word prayer invokes feelings of power-under, being small while making entreaties to a god that is big and far, far away. Some of us might associate prayer with guilt, as in “I don’t pray enough” or more likely, “I am _(lazy, unenlightened, lame, etc)_ because I have not kept up with my spiritual practice.”

But there is no shame or blame in the spirit world that we choose to engage with in shamanism. There is only love...

 

Shamanism


 

Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: This is probably one of the most beautifully spiritual and visually meditative pieces I've ever experienced.  Watch and listen to experience the majestic wonder and healing benefits that this video offers.  Be sure to watch until the end to read the "Native American Prayer" by Chief [John] Yellow Lark...simply Divine.  This video also has one of the most ethereal horses I've ever seen in it.

Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I am constantly reminded that I am supported in my life's work and in life in general. I love the wonderful reminder of this article that messages and guidance can show up in so many ways. For me, they are especially magical when embodied by an animal.

Integrative Medicine


 

Editor´s Note: Yoga has many purposes. Not only creating supple muscles or helping you stay grounded, but sending out energy and love to others. In many yoga classes, the yoga teacher may ask you to set an intention…that's similiar to what is being depicted in this yoga sequence. Sean Corn demonstrates the graceful and athletic movements that channel energy and love to a person or culture.

Energy Medicine


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.
