We must admit that we often allow our minds to be filled and governed by fears, hates, anger, and stress. Each of these can apparently impact our bodies in harmful ways. With this awareness, can we afford to sit back and let beliefs wreak havoc on our bodies? I don’t believe we can, not when it is possible to correct harmful beliefs with a divine sense of love and spiritual understanding.

The list of addictions plaguing mankind is long. Alcohol, gambling, illegal and prescription drugs, and pornography are just part of the inventory. Each causes havoc on the lives of the addicted and those close to them. Because of this, it’s important to conquer addiction with urgency. Neglecting a need is not an option.

Stars like Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, and Christina Aguilera may have caught a glimpse of a magnificent life, a life that celebrates the unlimited, divine qualities available to each of us. Whether they know it or not, perhaps their real gift may have been their stubborn refusal to let a material sense of talent and individuality smother the grand spiritual lives they were destined to live.

How many times have you watched a drum line perform and found yourself moving to the beat of those drums?
There’s a pulse, a rhythm to life, and the sounds of synchronized drumming somehow seem to stir us to recognize the marvel of that.
And there’s more to the beating of drums than meets the eye (or ear). Researchers studying the effects of drumming acknowledge that an involvement with stimulating rhythms supplies us with health benefits.
And apparently the drums themselves are optional!
Waves breaking on a shore, raindrops on a tin roof, as well as footsteps hitting the pavement during a morning run are all stimulating rhythmic patterns. They, too, can be life-enhancing cadences.
What makes captivating beats so beneficial? Could it be that the audible patterns that enrich us echo a deeper, spiritual lilt that has a divine origin?

Already overdosed on campaign rhetoric? Tired of political posturing?
As tired of the lengthening of political seasons as you may be, there are some who are actually sick and tired. The stress over political battles has impacted their health.
It’s good to be an involved citizen, but, nasty politics can cause extremes in thought and unpleasant physical symptoms. It seems the more negative a political campaign gets, the more illness is experienced.
While you should support and vote for candidates you truly feel can best govern, getting caught up in the anxiety and anger of opposing sides won’t help. It will only add to what harms.

Throughout history, moments spent strolling through floral paths, even planting vegetable and herb gardens, have been found to be therapeutic.
A Health & Science article in The Washington Post put a spotlight on the benefits of nature moments. It examined Robert Zarr’s “innovative community health program,” DC Parks Rx, which is “committed to combating the woes of urban living by prescribing time outdoors.”
Zarr, a pediatrician, is convinced that a “growing body of scientific evidence” indicates “that many of the chronic scourges of city life can be prevented or alleviated by reconnecting with nature.”
How does communing with nature help?

Michael Kirsch, MD, in Can prayer heal the sick? wrote about a woman who, after going through a surgery in 1985, was informed that she most likely had only 1 to 2 years to live. “The patient and her husband were devastated.” The husband “related the tragic news to his 3 children, ages 3, 5 and 8.”
While recovering from surgery, the woman’s 3-year-old daughter told her mother she wasn’t going to die because God had told her that her mother would live. “The patient related that she felt an unusual sensation that began at the top of her head and rippled slowly down her body until it reached the soles of her feet.”
The woman received no further treatments. And she is well today.
