Food is the highlight of the holidays for most people. Who doesn’t like a beautiful traditional holiday dinner? Someone is perhaps looking forward to a home-made roasted ham with mashed potatoes, someone can’t wait to bite into mom’s pie or grandmother’s special stuffing...
Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Are your eyes ever bigger than your stomach? This holiday season, with all the feasting, fun and food, take a moment to examine what tickles your tongue but may bloat your belly! Wellness Coach and Ayurvedic Enthusiast Nadya Andreeva presents Ayurveda's concept of "Asatmya" - improper food combining. And, just in time for holiday dinners! Asatmya speaks to distinct digestive properties of all food and how the combination of the five elements can either be in sync with your eating habits or wreak havoc on your body.

There is a belief system out there – maybe it’s one you’ve had or you know of someone who has it – that says “if spirits are real, isn’t it unnatural for them to be interacting with us?” In other words, if there is a spirit realm and an earth realm, doesn’t it stand to reason that because they are separate places of existence that one should not be able to effectively interact with the other?...
Editor's Note from Lisa Pheonix: Spirit Communication begins with our intuition - they go hand in hand. This is a fascinating article by Jeffrey Marks about cross-dimensional communication. Jeffrey encourages us to adjust our belief system and expand our views in relation to all different types of Spirit communication while offering us practical guidance in order for us to embrace our multi-dimensional existence.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Martina McBride sings about how she has changed her life by changing the way she thinks. She sings, "I used to hide in a party crowd, bottled up inside, feeling so left out. Standing in a corner wearing concrete shoes with my frozen smile and my lighted fuse. Now every time I start to feel like that I roll out my heart, I like a welcome mat. Oh, watch me go, I'm a happy girl! Everybody knows that the sweetest thing that you'll ever see in the whole wide world is a happy girl!" It is a fun song and sure to lift your spirits! Enjoy!!

Every year in the month of October, before the calendar turns over to November, we get on our masks and costumes to encounter the ‘spirits of Halloween’. Why?
Masks cover the hidden and are created to represent and convey the camouflaged concepts behind them...

The Wine Spirit is an ancient being who has been brought into ceremony and shared her knowledge and healing with people since pre-historic times. (My sudden reflections on the significance of wine in the Christian sacraments began to take on a whole new meaning.) My plant spirit guide, continued to explain that the mind altering medicinal plants might be seen on a hierarchical ladder…
Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Ever wonder why alcohol is referred to as “spirits”? One possible answer to that question is contained in this article written by Sarah Finlay. The shamanic worldview holds that all physical forms have associated spirit aspects. Some physical/spirit partnerships have stronger affect on us people than others. This article puts forward a fascinating theory about the spiritual effects of alcohol, and how our awareness and intention is vital to our health in conjunction with the ingestion of the physical/spirit substance.

I am a sangoma. What does this mean? A sangoma is an African traditional healer who merges with her ancestors for the purpose of healing. It is a spiritual calling, not a chosen profession. An apprentice sangoma, called a thwasa, studies with a mentor for approximately two years and must learn how to prepare herbal medicines (muti), how to interpret dreams, how to incorporate spirits, how to diagnose illness through divination with bones, and how to heal both physical and spiritual illness...
Editor's Note: Having personally had the privilege of working with Gretchen in the past, I can attest to her amazing abilities and skills as a shamanic healer trained in the African heritage.

I remember when I was a kid and used to see shows and medical exhibits on how awful primitive medicine was and how wonderful our new "scientific" medicine is. The exhibits would include Aztec skull cutters to make holes to let out evil spirits, leeches, snake oil salesman, and such. We may have moved past some of these (well, instead of leeches we have lab blood-drawing stations), but as we see, historically, the wheel continues to turn...
