Klaus Heinemann On Orbs & Entities
'If you change your TV channel, you switch to different frequencies, which contain different information. It's illogical to think that what we cannot see is not real, because the human eye is able to receive only a very narrow part of the light spectrum. Many animals can see in spectrums invisible to us.'..
As Professor Heinemann summarised: 'Research into orbs is only in its infancy. But the photographs of these spirit emanations offer evidence - as close to scientific proof as we have ever come - in proving the existence of spiritual reality.'

Recognizing the Rights of Animals
Animal lovers have known for years that the creatures we interact with, both at home and in the wild, are sentient, fully aware beings deserving of the same respect and rights we accord to our human brethren.
Study after study has confirmed that animals are intelligent, aware, and able to communicate with humans in their own special way. For some, communicating with animals is second nature, such as seen in this moving video of an "Animal Whisperer" calming a panther.

Learning Qi Gong Online with Master Mingtong Gu

Sleepless in South Salem
How much do I miss my sleep? Let me count the ways: I can't remember the last time I woke refreshed from six to eight unbroken hours of rest; hell, I can't remember much of anything anymore as short term memory seems to be the first casualty of sleep deprivation. I miss dreaming and when I say, "I am tired of waking up like the house is on fire, sweating, with my heart pounding from the surge of hormones," I mean it literally: I am tired of it.

God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels
God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels by Patricia Brooks
Review by Cheryl Shainmark --
In the second of what promises to be a lively series, (click here for a review of the first book), author Patrica Brooks shares more of her autobiographical tale of spiritual growth. Written in an upbeat and humorous fashion, God is in the Little Things: Messages from the Golden Angels skips along in an engaging manner. Brook's stories are lovely, like little pearls strung together in a delicate necklace.

Going Beyond Our Genes: Bruce Lipton and the Study of Epigenetics
I first became interested in Bruce Lipton when I saw one of his
broadcasts on Conscious TV.
I found his lectures on
Biology and Belief,
and the power we have to affect our genes and DNA, to be absolutely fascinating. The idea that we can "switch off" a gene, or the predispostion to a disease fits with everything I know about the mind-body connection, and everything I believe to be true about the importance of mind over matter.

The World Peace Caravan
In the history of mankind we have not managed to create sustainable world peace yet. Perhaps we need fresher, less jaded, more forward-thinking and guileless minds to help find the solution. Perhaps we should ask our youth for their ideas. After all, they are our next generation of leaders. Why not engage their optimism, ingenuity and dynamism now?
The World Peace Caravan, www.worldpeacecaravan.org, is doing just that. A global peace movement that will culminate in a 12 day camel caravan from
Jerusalem in December, 2015, the World Peace Caravan is selecting a delegation of 12 Youth Ambassadors, ages 16-24, from a worldwide pool of candidates to spearhead the caravan.

Island Woman on Dreaming with the Animal Spirits by Robert Moss
When we discover any possible power animal connection, we want to (1) study the natural habits and qualities or the animal (2) track it through folklore, mythology and spiritual traditions (3) learn from the animal itself, by journeying to it, and then with it (4) feed and honor the animal in our bodies and our lives. I want to let one of my great teachers on this subject speak to you on this subject. She is a true "wolf woman". Born Huron, she was adopted by the Mohawk as a child and became the mother of the Wolf Clan of the Kanienkehaka (People of the Stone, as the Mohawk call themselves in their own language) and a powerful atetshents (dream shaman). She called me from across time....
