New this Issue:
Happy Holiday Season to everyone! We all hope that thus far the season has been full of love and peace. Peace? Yes, peace, something that I'm sure most of us pray for on a regular basis.
This issue of the journal "Prayers of Peace" allows us to explore what prayer is, what peace is, what our perspectives are on the subject and in some cases ways that people have found peace within. Many of us have been looking for quite sometime, receiving glimpses for periods of time, but always finding the confusion and chaos that life has to offer once again.
As I worked on getting the journal ready for print, I have had more than a few conversations with people regarding their experiences in not being able to hold that way of being "peace" within themselves during exchanges with others. It seems to be more and more difficult as our world is changing to find that peaceful center within and carry it out into the world.
With our economy in so much trouble, changes in our government, rising prices of just about everything except wages in most cases people are finding it extremely difficult not to act out from the fear that this global situation is triggering in each one of us. More and more stories surface of people in conflict in their daily lives over something, anything to work out the issues around what is happening to them. So we have decided that we are postponing the theme for the next issue "Animalwize" to the April/May issue and will be honouring the theme for February/March as "Integrity."
There are lots of other reasons that all of this is coming into the light currently; there are an abundance of energetic shifts taking place; one of which is the Mayan calendar shift from the 5th night into the 6th day. From a period of integration to a time of growth. These days and nights are happening a lot quicker and more and more is being experienced during this time. So once again, going into fall and winter energies are being asked to wake up and expand.
The next issue's articles will need to be into the journal on or before the 18th of December so that we may all enjoy the upcoming holiday. I appreciate everyone's understanding of this change as I feel it is an important topic and one that will serve all to be explored.
With this new surge of energy so expands the journal. Thanks to all who called and were interviewed for the assistant's position, it was a lot of fun to meet so many of you and to connect with those that we haven't seen in awhile. As an outcome of this experience we have connected with someone to help us both with our practice and the journal, her name is Starr Wiseman and we would like to welcome her to our Inner Tapestry family. So many aspects of life are expanding and I am excited that we now have someone who can help with our day-to-day goings on.
Our counselling & therapy section has added three new practitioners, Adi Philpott has added new services to her practice in the salons & spa section and many of our practitioners have been updating information and services so take a few moments to check it out.
There are many holistic happenings coming in the February March issue. To help us move through the winter months, please consider all the classes that will be offered especially movement, as these will definitely help keep you warm.
We are looking at expanding the distribution in the southern coastal area of New Hampshire and Maine. If anyone has any favorite places they visit and would like to see the journal carried there please email us with their information.
As the year comes to a close on this time line, it is customary to reflect, look ahead and yet stay present in the moment—no wonder why we're tired! Many have acknowledged our recent changes in history as a non-violent revolution. We are now at a time in our evolution where we have never been before. Soon there will be no path to follow; our past will not help us live our future. There will be no references for the experiences that are to come. So when our minds hand us our references, lets all be gentle, thank ourselves for the journey so far and look with wonderment and innocence at what lies ahead. Through this we will become peace. Let's do everything in our lives for the first time.
Our love and thanks to all our readers, writers and advertisers for their contributions in the journal this year and for your commitment to community and the growth and expansion of yourselves. Thanks for a wonderful year of friendship.
May you access your love this season.
May you receive yourself.
