December Creating A Life Full of Goodness

By Liz Sterling

We can thank Oprah for reminding us, “What you focus on expands, and when you focus on the goodness in your life, you create more of it.” Well, I haven’t been focusing on that because the traffic is horrendous, the weather is not as good as I expected, and the stores are already mobbed.

By Larisa Klein

All -natural foods are hard to find. This makes it even more important that we know what artificial ingredients we ingest and how they interact with our chemistry.

Thank You, Jack

By Tina Valant-Siebelts

Do you savor the story line, enjoy the plot, characters, and the entire experience of a book or movie? Or do you focus solely on the last chapter/end? I have not shared this publicly.

Earth Talk Q & A

Dear Earth Talk:

Even though I know a vegetarian diet is better for the environment, I love cheeseburgers and a good steak every now and then. If I stick to grass-fed beef, can I live with myself environmentally?

Change Your Channel, Change Your Life

By Cary Bayer

Tv channels and radio stations pick up the frequencies from broadcast towers that enable you to watch and listen to their programs. Your thoughts, which also have frequencies, get picked up in the conscious part of your mind from the Source of Thought from whence they came. Dwelling on the negative ones and turning them into speech and action, as well, keeps you stuck in low vibration ruts for longer than necessary.
