A New Way of Seeing

A New Way of Seeing, Romina Vintila

 

As much as the New Year means to all of us, there is a lot of resolution-setting out there. Setting new goals; changing your habits; it all focuses on something new that we must put on our to-do list. However, to me, the New Year is a brand new beginning, maybe a conclusion to what we’ve been working on. As are all conclusions, they are also new beginnings, inevitably. It can be about goal-setting, yet how many times have resolutions truly worked? So why do we keep setting them? Read the rest of this entry »

 

How Horses are Helping Veterans Heal

How Horses are Helping Veterans Heal, Blair McKissock

 

“It’s a new normal.” This is how Nick Bennett describes life after he was hit by a roadside attack in Iraq in 2004.  This phrase is common among servicemen and women who cope daily with the symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) from trauma experienced during their service.  It is estimated that one in every five veteran will be diagnosed with PTSD.  These symptoms can include hypersensitivity and arousal, generalized anxiety, depression, recurring nightmares, flashbacks, and many more emotional swings that all affect a person’s ability to cope with everyday life.  Many soldiers coming home from deployment are experiencing multiple symptoms of PTSD, and can shut down emotionally, avoid social situations, have trouble with relationships, especially connecting with their family.  This “new normal” can be very scary.  One veteran spoke about how just leaving the house triggers anxiety.  They describe how every tall building houses a sniper in the window, every car that pulls up next to them is full of terrorists, or how being in public is a feat of strength to hide the fear they feel.  Many of them find a certain peace in high-risk and self-destructive activities to cope with their symptoms.  “Driving fast creates a sense of calmness”, as one veteran describes it.  Doug McLaughlin bought a motorcycle and found high rates of speed and dangerous driving to be a release for that pent-up anger and stress he felt trying to adjust to civilian life after his service.  Those behaviors resulted in a head-on collision that he was lucky to survive. He never thought he would find the same sense of peace with a horse.

January… New Beginnings in Peace or Pieces

The Magical World of Numbers - January... New Beginnings  	in Peace or Pieces, Elizabeth Summers

By this time many of us may feel like the crumbling of the Berlin wall! Emotionally, physically and not to mention financially fragmented that all we would like to do is sit, close our eyes and take a long winter’s nap.

January says “let’s begin anew” and will take some time to get ourselves up to steam to do so.

As we say, think or write the Number One of January on our paper work, we send the energy to the Universe that it is a time to begin again, look for new opportunities, have courage, believe in ourselves only do whatever it takes to get the job done!

Cosmic Daily Weather – January 2015

Cosmic Daily Weather: January 2015, Kelley Hunter

January 2015

Overview

A New Year’s Eve party of planets gathered to ring in 2015 in earthy Capricorn style. In addition to the usual Capricorn Sun, three planets greet us at the threshold to inaugurate a new annual cycle that continues the agenda for major systemic change. Dark, remote Pluto, in its 15-year Capricorn cycle, has been a behind-the-scenes transformative influence for a number of new years, along with Change Agent, Uranus. These two planets have been in a dynamic activation relationship, with obvious outcomes on the global stage. Let’s take it personally and make meaningful New Year’s resolutions to change our lives for the better. With Saturn now in Sagittarius, we are beginning a new two and a half year cycle. Where do you want to be in your life by the end of that time? A strong social Aquarian overtone is provided by Mars, Venus and Mercury most of the month, with some dreamy Pisces provided by both Mars and Venus by the end of the month. Mercury goes retrograde on the 21st, staying in Aquarius into March. Is 2015 the “dawning of the Age of Aquarius”? Let’s walk the talk to promote global peace and harmony.
