Q & A Interview

Autumn 2012

Open-Minded

"I open my mind to new ideas outside of my frame-of-reference. Being open-minded allows a new set of possibilities to enter my life. As I open my mind to experience what my teachers model to me, obstacles disappear from my path. I expand my awareness easily and quickly when I am open-minded. I am open-minded and allow new opportunities to flow into my life"

Greetings from the Editor:

12-12-12

My marriage anniversary has an auspicious date this year, December 12, 2012. I am happy to say, we beat the odds to enjoy a long-term, self-actualizing relationship. We weathered and continue to weather the ups and downs of life and chose to learn needed skills to build a good relationship, such as how to communicate and address our individual issues. One thing of value I learned years ago from a wise person is that many people think a relationship is either working or not working, and, therefore, end relationships that have potential or else stay stuck in negative thinking that spirals them on a path of misery with no solutions. By changing the focus to, "I choose this relationship to work," the challenges arising are then seen as part of the journey that needs to be managed and transformed to get back on track to the good relationship.

Over the years my husband and I have grown to be self-aware individuals and in this relationship out of choice. Knowing ourselves individually and then knowing the other person have been of prime importance in creating a supportive, caring relationship. The lead article below resulted when someone contacted me asking why relationships fail. May you remind yourself of what you already know and find something of value to boost your relationship awareness.

Fortunate Blessings,

Suzanne

PS Happy Holidays

Book Review

The Biology of Belief

Reviewed by Linda Iverson, RN, MN, CHt

"The implication of this research radically changes our understanding of life.  It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts."  This book is a combination of cellular biology, quantum physics, and more. 

Dr. Lipton’s research as well as others, found that it is the membrane of the cell, not the nucleus, which causes the cells to work and do their job.  The membrane responds to signals outside of the cell such as the environment, chemical changes in the brain brought about by thought or emotions, what we eat and many other stimuli.

Self-Growth

Starting Over

By William Spear

Feng Shui is a method of understanding the relationship between our external environment and our consciousness within.  When properly practiced, this profound, ancient art creates a polarity between these two worlds, which stimulates movement and change.  This sounds easy enough, but for anyone studying Feng Shui beyond the media sound bites and popular magazine features, one overwhelming truth quickly appears:  There is a vast body of knowledge requiring many years of study, and confusion can easily conquer clarity. It has been said that no lesser sages than Lao Tsu and Confucius spent their whole lives studying the I Ching or Book of Changes, which is the basis of Feng Shui.  Indeed, their words are wise, but are their teachings practical in today’s world?
