Greetings from the Editor:

Catching Time with to Be with Yourself

Time alone to connect to your inner true Self is paramount to having inner peace. During the holiday season, many of us are busy with time consuming things: preparing for the fun of the season such as family visits and meals, exchanging gifts and cards, etc. December is really no different from any other month, in that life is full of distractions to maintaining a deep spiritual connection to oneself. Think about it. Isn't it the number one priority of many people on the healing journey to live from the strength and guidance of this spiritual essence? Well then, I invite you to catch some time amidst the distractions and set your inner work as a top priority.

And with this issue, we start something new and exciting. I hope you'll put it to good use. You can now leave comments on any of the articles. That's right -- you can leave your own comments on any article for other readers to view. I invite you to join with other readers, and have your own say.

Happy Holidays,


Think On This


by Meredith Young-Sowers   

Joy is closely aligned with freedom because the joyful human being experiences life's fullness and nurturing even through disappointment, anger, anxiety, or loss. Joy is an internal state of being, one that emerges from a profound belief in the sacredness of life. If you are moving into joy, it is because you have accepted that you can risk. Whether or not you succeed in the terms you imagine, you have succeeded in the eyes of the Universe. When you risk saying, doing, or expressing your own essence, you become renewed even when you are initially uncomfortable or afraid of being vulnerable or feeling exposed. You are moving into self-love and confidence...

Questions & Answers

Continuation from last newsletter question:
Later Question: We haven't had much success getting a counselor who my daughter feels understands her. She says I am the one who listens to her best, but I feel so inadequate. I think the problem is that she finds herself in a very hard situation (financially, job wise and new location) and can't see any options to get herself out of the "hole." She admits she has a problem with procrastination, so I presume making a decision is desperately scary for her under the circumstances. How can I encourage her?

Finding Your Spiritual Purpose

by Suzanne E. Harrill      

Your life has many purposes. Many are fulfilled in your day-to-day life and you do not think of them as purposes. Yet you could say meaning and purpose motivated each choice, each experience, and each role you have played that taught you lessons about yourself, your relationships, people, organizations, and how life works. The learning and growth that has or is taking place from each experience moves you forward to greater awareness and can be seen as a purpose in your life. Some of you may choose to look broader and see the major theme or spiritual reason for your life. Knowing your spiritual purpose is a motivating and exciting force in one's life. Do you know your spiritual purpose or are you ready to take on another assignment?

From the Movie: What the Bleep Do We Know

I Create My Day

The most often referenced interview in the film is Dr. Joe Dispenza's comments on creating his day. In response to the numerous requests, the following is the transcript of that part of the interview.

"I wake up in the morning, and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now, sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down, and get to the point, of where I'm actually intentionally creating my day. But here's the thing...."

Guest Article


By Sandra Zimmer

One beautiful California day in 1982, I was lying on the floor in meditation during a time of struggle with finances and how to "make money." I heard an inner voice say very clearly to me, "All you have to do is receive." I was startled by the clear sound of this message. My eyes flew open and I sat upright. The energy of that voice resonated all through my body. It had a ring of truth that was palpable. I somehow knew it to be true. The only problem was that I had no idea how to receive...
