Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: This is a wonderful video about transformation and how opportunities come especially when we're mired in darkness and negativity. It reminds us that all we have to do is just ask for angelic and divine assistance and it comes. A beautiful reminder of how spirit is always with us!

As humans, we tend to think that happiness is better than sadness, that good luck is better than bad. We may avoid difficult confrontations and pursue more comfortable situations. When tragedy strikes our well-protected lives, we shout out to our god of choice: "How could you do this to me??" We believe that our birthright is the pursuit of happiness, and we spend our lives trying to protect ourselves from sorrow. The soul, however, has a different journey...

In Chinese medicine, the spleen and kidneys play an important role in metabolism. We are not referring to the literal and anatomical kidneys and spleens alone. These organs are actually the gross manifestations, two of five of the essential processes or functions our whole selves cycle through on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. The spleen represents the function of transformation and digestion and it, working in partnership with the pancreas and stomach, are responsible for converting food and water into fuel and energy that the body can use to sustain itself...
Editor´s Note from Julia Sanfilippo: This is a great article that explains metabolism and weight gain from a Chinese Medicine perspective. The functions of different organ systems are discussed, along with herb and food recommendations to nourish and balance the body.

After discovering Body Awareness Tactile Imaging - KINESTHETIC FEELINGS - based energy work, I started keying into my heart Chakra and it absolutely BLEW MY MIND how powerfully it responded...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: Robert Bruce takes a look at the shared qualities of heart and healing energy in order to show us that powerful transformation is available in our lives when we bring our awareness to and connect deeply with the heart chakra. He also reminds us that our hearts are truly in charge.
Editor's Note from Marie Sakai: Sometimes it's easy to forget the simplicity that life is. It's easy to believe that we don't have everything. But this movie by filmmaker Louie Schwartzherg reminds us that life is a gift and most importantly our life, our world, each other-we are all part of this amazing creation that is art. Inspirational narrative spoken from Brother David Steindl-Rast will speak to your heart, as he says, "Open your Heart. Open your Heart to the World." And there, you will find the transformation you are yearning to become. We all have this deepness inside of us. Cultivate it. Nurture it. And we will all grow in the artwork of our dreams coming true. 2012 is all about seeing your dreams realized. Be blessed.

Two times in my life during profound transformation, the Bear has come to me in a dream. The first, when I began working as a spiritual empath. The first three years were the most intense; I barely slept and rarely went outside. My inner world was rich with new knowledge and experience but my body was wrought with fatigue...

It is easy to assume Breema is just bodywork when we see photo- graphs of practitioner and recipient moving in perfect ease and balance. If you’ve already received a treatment, you probably know what a transformational effect it can have. However, Breema is more succinctly a practical teaching including bodywork, self-bodywork and nine universal principles, supporting recipients and students to have the experience of bringing mind, body and feelings into harmony...
Author's Note: “There’s not an artificial way of doing Breema that has to be over-come,” said Jon Schreiber, Director of the Breema Center, when I talked to him for this article. This new way of using the mind and body provides us with profound support to experience that freedom really is in this moment. Breema helps us again and again to move from complication to simplicity. When we have a taste of that, it is clear that this is what we have been searching for.
