In the depth of winter, nature provides a means for deeper self-awareness and understanding since the outer world is not as hospitable climate-wise as in other times of the year. The very cold we experience is an invitation to hibernate, to go within, and when we use the time as an opportunity to see ourselves from a deeper perspective, we can find aspects of who we are that may have been forgotten, and that need to be strengthened.
When we make time to look at ourselves objectively and recognize the miracle that each of us is, we can open ourselves to accepting and expressing the full meaning of our lives – ‘To know thyself, and to thine own self be true.’
This month you will find articles that point the way to the inner beauty and light that you are. You will see ways for uncovering your best self and for finding peace of mind. We feature writer William Henry’s take on the meaning of the Trump Inauguration and the affect it has on our culture (p. 8). We also have a newly-formatted astrology column by Barry Kerr that points the way for each of us as to the best use of our abilities this month. We like his new approach and think you will, too.
There’s a saying that ‘out of chaos, order comes’ – and in this time of uncerrtainty, we all have an opportunity to find those things that we need to release, and focus on what is most meaningful to us for a future we want to see. Reach for the heights within your own self and nurture the love you truly are. (Angel Talk, p.4) What we gain from this is the recognition that our voice, our heart, and our unique contribution to life truly matters.
The start of a New Year always exemplifies a perfect opportunity for letting go of what no longer serves us, whether that is an item no longer loved, used or needed or perhaps a belief or ‘bad’ habit that needs to be transformed into something better. It is a time for renewal or a new beginning and the energy is ripe for that!
In this issue you will find many ideas for looking at your life and seeing where your higher self is leading you to make some changes. If that is unclear to you, sit in silence and ask for clarity. If that is still unclear, contact me and I will help by doing a reading for you.
Sreper offers his wisdom on determining if your career is also your divine blueprint, or if you’re on your life path. Power animals are another method for integrating the wisdom represented by the animal kingdom. We can use the gifts of the animals that speak to us, incorporating their gentle guidance and strengths as our own.
In this issue you will find articles about this gift of wisdom that animals can impart to us. Along with the other articles that focus on the New Year and all the possibilities that await us, we hope you can use some of our ideas to create a joyous beginning to 2017.

For this month’s theme I chose to focus on creativity and the joy that brings children of all ages. My feng shui mentor, Terah Kathryn Collins wrote, “You are all creators in life. You are constantly creating something, whether it’s new cells in your body, new thoughts in your mind, new meals in the kitchen, or new projects at work. To live is to create, and to create is to be truly alive. The key to entering fully into the creative process is joy. The joy and pleasure you take in your everyday creations connects you with the joy of all creation.
A child’s natural ability to spontaneously create art, plays, songs, poems, dances, skits, games, and music erupts from the joy of being alive. It is pure childlike quality of joy within us all that carries the creative spirit.”
And so it is, in this issue we present all kinds of inspiration. Many of my contributors have products and services for those on your wish list, or your gift list for others.
May your Christmas be Merry and Bright with Creativity bursting through everywhere in all it’s wondrous forms! And as always, feel free to share this ezine with your friends and loved ones.

As we get into the November Thanksgiving holiday spirit, I wanted to say I am grateful for my clients, editors and contributors … and for all our readers who tell me how grateful they are I am publishing this little gem. Thank you one and all!
I cannot imagine myself not publishing. It gives me the opportunity to meet some wonderful souls who have their own heartfelt contribution to healing. This little ezine gives us all a voice in the spiritual community in which we live – a forum to express our ideas that hopefully inspire others to heal and live a better life.
This month the angels suggested writing about the gift the trees give us. I was driving around the other day to take in the colors of the changing autumn leaves. One scene was more breathtaking than the last! I took photos of some of my favorite views and one of those is on this month’s cover. As I was doing this, I tried to imagine life without trees. In my mind’s eye, the streets were bare except for the telephone poles and wires. Oh wait! There wouldn’t be any of those either, and only houses made of brick and stone. What are you grateful for?
