Volume 12 Issue 2—July/August
by Melva Armstrong
The last two months we have had gorgeous weather and I have been thoroughly enjoying the spring. With all the rain we have had my walks in the park and along the riverbank are truly delightful as my eyes continuously drink in the lush green colours of Mother Nature. Every day when I walk in Her midst I feel Her supporting my feet and my body and I thank Her for being there for me as I go about my daily activities. This allows me to start each day feeling safe and positive and grateful to be alive. We are very blessed here in Saskatchewan and every day I thank the Creator for this.
With this second issue of year twelve I continue to feel grateful for the work I do and for all the delightful and wonderful folks I meet from day to day. I truly appreciate all of you who support WHOLifE Journal in the many ways you do. Thank you all and many blessings to you who have helped keep this idea of mine going for so many years. May we all continue to grow and evolve to our highest level of awareness so we can be of the greatest service for the good of all. I feel we are one big family on earth and our most precious task is to love each other unconditionally. I believe when we are all in love with each other there will be peace on earth. This is something that keeps me going and to which I look forward. I will enjoy reaching that goal with all of you.
In the meantime you can enjoy the many gifts that are presented in this issue. We welcome Peggy Dueck's article on The Yuen Method—A Form of Chinese Energetic Medicine (p. 16). Dr. Kam Yuen, the developer of this unique healing technique, will be introducing it into Saskatchewan in September. According to Dueck, "If you created a condition you can un-create it as well." She says this method works on a deep level and by finding the root of a problem and eliminating it, one is able to release many physical symptoms, as well as emotional fears and limitations.
Another natural healing method used to relieve pain, restore energy, and enhance sleep is introduced to us in Kris Nanan's article, Magnetic Therapy (p. 10). In it he explains how magnetic therapy works and the healing benefits that can be derived from using it, including the prevention and treatment of chronic ailments. He adds that this non-invasive and highly successful therapy is thousands of years old.
A cup of Royal tea, anyone? Thanks to Wendy Gist's article, Royal Tea—The White Brew for Health (p. 14), we can now join royalty and reap the healing benefits of this very old and unfermented White Tea, while savouring its mild and sweet taste. She says it is mainly produced in China but is gaining popularity world-wide because of its medicinal properties and its fresh aroma. She explains in detail the various kinds, how they are grown and harvested, and instructions for making it into a perfect brew.
Due to an increased interest in the ancient grain known as quinoa, we have decided to repeat (from May/June 2001) Paulette Millis's article, Cooking With Quinoa (p. 8). Millis says, "Quinoa is an easy-to-digest, gluten-free grain. It has the highest protein content of any grain (16%)", and she adds, "It has earned the nickname ‘Supergrain'."
I know we all want more wealth in our lives. Look no further than Wayne Lee's article, What is Wealth? (p. 12). Lee, a well-known hypnotist and empowerment speaker, believes we are living in a world where there is more than enough to go around but the key, he says, to becoming wealthy is learning to develop a prosperity consciousness. He lists three principles and suggestions for some daily practices that can help you attract more wealth into your life. Lee will be speaking in Saskatchewan in the fall.
What? Wal-Mart going "green"? That was Guy Dauncey's first reaction when he read about it and then he decided to write his article, The Greening of Wal-Mart (p. 30). I was surprised at Guy's response and I will leave it up to you to decide what you think about the latest changes in policies by this world supermarket giant.
