Essences of Nature: Lost and Found

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Do you know that feeling of having lost your purse, your wallet, or a favorite piece of clothing? First you have the horrific realization that it is not where you thought it was. Then you search frantically because you just have to find it.

Essences of Nature: Itchy and Scratchy

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Do you ever have those days when everything gets under your skin? You feel restless. You feel a sense of urgency. You feel discomfort. You feel out of sorts and out of sync. Everything and everyone is an irritant.

Shamanic Wisdom: Fear Release Portals

Jan Engels-Smith

Our evolution into becoming the beings that we have always been destined to be necessitates acquiring new understanding of the sacredness of our souls and overcoming the resistances that hinder our progression to enlightenment.

Essences of Nature: Dealing with Fear and Trauma

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Boston. I watch with much pain and compassion as the stories of shock, pain, and bravery unfold. It makes us question: What would we do if faced with such a trauma? Would we try to hide? Would we crack the glass and pull the lever? Would we run toward the event or away from it?

Essences of Nature: Take the First Step

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Where do we start when we want to begin something? Do we start at the beginning, the so-called first step? Do we take the fool's journey by jumping in and hoping that the safety net will appear? Do we plot and plan and use our astrological charts to align with the most auspicious of times?

The Living Alphabet: The Foundation Letter Dd

Angeline Welk

In the book of wisdom, we are instructed to ask if we desire to receive, to search inwardly for what fulfills us. In doing so, the door is opened to us:

Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.

Shamanic Wisdom: Our Challenges Are Opportunities for Growth

Jan Engels-Smith

Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.
— Roger Crawford

Essences of Nature: Playing with Power

Mary Ann Altamarino Antenucci

Power can be a delicious and dirty word. We instantly associate it with the abuses of power: corruption, tyranny, unfairness, and bending others to our will. We may also fantasize about what it would be like to have the genie who grants every wish.

The Living Alphabet: The Open-Heart Letter Cc

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
