Shine Your Light

A candle loses nothing bylighting another candle. ~ James Keller

Throughout the year, many of us invest in making healthy choices but neglect soul sustenance. This December edition is full of enlightening ways to bring harmony and joy. A Feast of Light, by Marliana Donato, offers recommendations for getting into your heart space.

And, our Fit Body column reaches the 4th of the seven chakras: The Heart Chakra. Learn how you can support it. The animal associated with the heart chakra is a Wolf. I was thrilled to find our cover artist Peggy Marra. Can you see?  Her two wolves standing together on the cover resemble a heart!

In these turbulent times when old boundaries are unraveling and old certainties are dissolving, there is possibility for creative transformation if we work together. Cassandra Curley offers wise words on the importance of letting go of fear and moving toward peace. We are all connected. Our feature story offers many ways to co-create as a community as well.

Speaking of community, let’s work together. A message we hear throughout the year, and especially during the holidays, is “Buy Local.”  Facing competition from big companies like Walmart and Amazon, our local businesses need your support more than ever. We hope you will “pay where you play.” Most of our advertisers offer holiday gift certificates! This free magazine is possible solely because of their support. No doubt, they will appreciate your patronage.

Also, our Holiday Gift Guide offers unique and local ideas. Now I have my shopping list all figured out! Plus, we have decided to offer a discounted Annual Subscription to Natural Awakenings for only $20! (normally $33/yr). Each month we will mail a magazine anywhere in the United States. By sharing healthy good news with your friends and family, we will let the recipient know of your thoughtful gift! Just call 407-628-0705 or email: [email protected] to request a mailed subscription.

May We Shine The Light Together,
