Greetings from the Editor:

The Importance of Yawning

Some very interesting information about ways to exercise your brain is found in the book, How God Changes Your Brain, Breakthrough Finding from a Leading Neuroscientist, by Andrew Newberg, M.D. and Mark Robert Waldman. One fact that caught my attention is, that numerous neurochemicals are involved in yawning, including dopamine. Dopamine activates oxytocin production in the brain, which improves many things, such as relationship bonding between individuals. Even when you fake it, yawning affects so many things. Experiment and you'll see after faking a yawn eight to twelve times you begin to have a real yawn. The authors give us 12 Essential Reasons to Yawn:

1. Stimulates alertness and concentration
2. Optimizes brain activity and metabolism
3. Improves cognitive function
4. Increases memory recall
5. Enhances consciousness and introspection
6. Lowers stress
7. Relaxes every part of your body
8. Improves voluntary muscle control
9. Enhances athletic skills
10. Fine-tunes your sense of time
11. Increases empathy and social awareness
12. Enhances pleasure and sensuality

Yawning is a good habit for us all to cultivate. Happy yawning!

Blessings,

Suzanne

Do You Live in an Open or Closed System?

By Suzanne E. Harrill

Do you like your life the way it is, or would you like to change it for the better, at least with the things you have control over -- how you use your time, your degree of social interaction, your interest in learning and growing, what you eat, or your degree of physical activity to name a few?

The Ebb And Flow Of Creativity

By Jacqueline Shueler

When we are feeling creative, everything just naturally flows out into a new form. There is no hesitation. At other times, we are blank; no matter how hard we try, nothing happens. Both of these experiences are vital parts of the ebb and flow of creativity. We must recognize the end of formation and the beginning of no form -- of space....

Personal Experience

Change

By Rayleen Gilbert

All human beings are afraid. We all feel insecure and afraid and think no one else does. Therefore, we spend so much time trying to be perfect, and living up to supposedly perfect standards, often compounded by standards portrayed in magazines and movies. If we all try and pretend that we are OK...

Head and Heart

By Jeanine Sande

Ancient Egypt had different words for the intelligence of the head and intelligence of the heart. The intelligence of the heart was regarded as true wisdom, to be listened to and followed. Intelligence of the head did not carry as much weight; it was seen more as chatter....

Lessons from My Dogs

By Suzanne E. Harrill

I am a dog person. For those of you who do not understand, let me explain. Dogs are important to my wellbeing. I love dogs and find it difficult to live without one. I am in rapport with most dogs. Some of my earliest memories as a child include a dog. Wherever I go, I notice dogs. I have helped lost dogs find their way home and stray dogs find new homes. I have owned many dogs in my life. I had no idea that I would have so much to learn from my animal friends. How, you may be asking, can one learn lessons from a dog?
