Volume 10 Issue 5 — January/February
Many blessings to you all as we enter this new year of 2005!
I want to thank all our contributing writers, our print and
website designers, our proofreader, our printer, our numerous
advertisers, and all our readers for your wonderful support
and work during the last year. Your combined contributions
are what make WHOLifE Journal so extremely successful and
for this I am truly grateful. I thoroughly enjoy putting
the journal together each issue and I feel blessed because
I get to meet and work with so many wonderful folks each
and every day. I look forward to continuing on my path of
growth and enlightenment as the journal’s publisher
and editor and I welcome all the gifts and challenges that
will be presented to me along the way.

In this new year issue we are pleased to bring you a feature
story by Kahlee Keane called, Canine
It is about two innovative Saskatoon massage therapists,
and great dog lovers, who created their own canine water
therapy program and centre not long after their veterinarian
recommended water therapy as a healing treatment for their
beloved golden retriever, Bailey.
After those delectable chocolate sweets were consumed by
many of us over the recent holiday season we thought it would
be a good idea to repeat Paulette Millis’s article
called, Carob: First Rate
Food!, from a previous issue.
In it she provides a “carob versus chocolate” comparison
which shows them to be extremely different in their qualities.
After reading her article you may want to seriously look
at carob as a delicious and healthy alternative food choice,
if you haven’t done so already. To get you started
she has also included some wonderful recipes using carob,
of which I particularly like the Eatmore Bars.
The start of a new year is often a time when many of us
make resolutions to better our lives. We trust that the articles
and advertisers contained in WHOLifE may be extremely helpful
to you as you work towards fulfilling those resolutions.
As a starter Maureen McIntosh suggests in her article, Why
Am I Here?, that some of us may be on a wrong
path because of thought patterns and conditioning that may
sabotaging us. She then offers some solutions as to how you
can discover your true purpose. On another level, you may
want to read Carole Friesen’s article, Our
Issues are in Our Tissues, in which she states, “To
truly understand ourselves we can start by decoding the language
of the BodyMind.” In other words, she suggests that
we look at our inner world in order to understand how we
create our outer world.
And if you want to read something creative and playful
check out Kathleen Houston’s article, Adventures
with Chi – Life Energy. Kathleen writes
about her own life experiences in a joyfully lilting and
that will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart
and will surely make you want to sing and dance and create
sounds and images that soothe the soul. “We are vibrational
beings and we respond to sound and imagery all the time,” she
For a natural way to relieve emotional imbalances, Rositha
Jeanson writes in her article, Flower
the key to choosing an essence or essences, for healing purposes,
is to pinpoint exactly how you feel right now. Rositha states
she has seen time and again how these natural remedies can
gently guide people through the blocks in their lives.
Finally, an important question is raised by Donald Sutherland
in his article, Light Pollution:
Is So Much Artificial Light Good?. I’ll
leave that for you to read and think about.
May we all begin this new year with gratitude and thanks
for our beautiful planet and for the gift of all Life. I’ll
see you again in two months. Blessed Be!
(I honour the Spirit in you!)
