How to attract butterflies to your garden year-round Lindsay Coulter
Want to help butterflies? Think beyond providing flowers for nectar in the height of summer. Many butterfly species we see in Canada don't migrate. You can provide habitat and food for their entire lifecycle — eggs, larvae, pupae AND adults — throughout the year. You'll need:

Countering Stress and Depression Dalai Lama
A great Tibetan teacher of mind training once remarked that one of the mind’s most marvelous qualities is that it can be transformed. I have no doubt that those who attempt to transform their minds, overcome their disturbing emotions and achieve a sense of inner peace, will, over a period of time, notice a change in their mental attitudes and responses to people and events. Their minds will become more disciplined and positive....

Being a Stay-At-Home Mom Dr. Christiane Northrup
Few things bring up as much guilt, ambivalence, and self-doubt as deciding whether to stay home with your kids or work outside your home. It doesn’t help that worry about being a “Supermom” is rampant in our society; because unjustified self-reproach and anxiety are major healths risk over time—for both mothers and their children—I want to give you some soothing thoughts on the whole topic.

4 Steps to Create Your Life with Conscious Language OK In Health eMagazine
Conscious language helps you identify your limiting beliefs and turn them around to serve your highest choices. Not only that, but every sound you utter is energy that plays a role in creating your world, also made up of energy. It might sound a little out there, but if you stop and think about the words you find yourself saying a lot of the time, perhaps without conscious thought, do those things show up often in your world? It’s quite likely. It makes sense then that choosing language that is supportive of you and others...

The Wisdom of a Spirituality-Based Science Gregg Braden
During the last years of the Cold War, I had a front row seat as a senior systems designer in the defense industry to one of the most frightening times in the history of the world, and the thinking that led to it. During the last years of the most potentially lethal, yet undeclared, war in human history, the superpowers of the United States and the former Soviet Union did something that seems unthinkable to any rationally minded person today. They spent the time, energy, and human resources to develop and stockpile somewhere in the neighborhood of 65,000nuclear weapons — a combined arsenal with the power to microwave the Earth, and everything on it, many times over.

The Human Smart Body Monika Muranyi
Have you ever heard about kinesiology? What about Body Talk or tapping? If not, perhaps you are aware of acupuncture? These healing modalities use techniques, such as muscle testing, which directly communicate with the body. Say what? Doctors don’t ask our body what’s wrong – they ask us to describe our symptoms and then make a diagnosis. What if I told you that every Human has a body intelligent consciousness that knows absolutely everything about you? Interested?

In the past, the major need of people in this world was arable land. Man did not have to think about animate things. However, now the adverse effects on forests through over-population and the development of various chemical elements in the atmosphere have led to irregular rainfall and global warming. This global warming has brought changes in climate, including making perennial snow mountains melt, thereby adversely affecting not only human beings but also other living species...

Compassion and the Individual Dalai Lama
I believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. From the moment of birth, every human being wants happiness and does not want suffering. Neither social conditioning nor education nor ideology affect this. From the very core of our being, we simply desire contentment. I don't know whether the universe, with its countless galaxies, stars and planets, has a deeper meaning or not, but at the very least, it is clear that we humans who live on this earth face the task of making a happy life for ourselves. Therefore, it is important to discover what will bring about the greatest degree of happiness.....

The history behind Ireland’s ancient Druids Maria O'Farrell Carr
Who were the Druids? Today the word conjures thoughts of magic, wizardry and spiritualism, but in ancient times the definition of Druid was much broader. During the Iron Age, the Druids made up the higher-educated tier of Celtic society, including poets, doctors and spiritual leaders. The legacy of this last group is the most enduring and the most mysterious. The earliest evidence of the Druid spiritual tradition is from 25,000 years ago and is found in...

Wellness Tip
Incline Walking
Did you know that you could significantly increase the number of calories you burn on the treadmill by increasing the incline? If you walk at about 3.5 miles per hour at no incline, a 150-pound person will burn about 275 calories per hour. The same speed at a 7.5%incline burns roughly twice as much.

Healthy Broccoli Salad
Category: Salads
Description: Cruciferous vegetables are known to have protective effects against cancer. DIM is destroyed by cooking – so getting some raw seems like a good idea. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is being studied at UC Berkeley for its role in cancer therapy. DIM is found in raw cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and kale. There is the popular broccoli salad with mayonnaise, sugar and bacon, but I wanted a healthier version. Here is what I came up with. I love it when healthy habits taste so great.
