Easter Came Early!

Easter Sunrise

We are five weeks into Lent. Easter is right around the corner. For Christians, this is a celebration of freedom and change – resurrection and new life. Many give up something for Lent to sacrificially participate in Christ’s suffering. Easter feels like a resurrection when what we gave up is again enjoyed, whether it be candy, alcohol, ice cream, movies, ...

I love epiphanies – those moments in life when my perspective on something changes to bring more love and understanding into my life. This morning I had an epiphany. I woke up from a disturbing dream that stayed with me for hours. Anxiety and sadness prompted me to ask why I had that dream, in which the role I played, ...

When Beliefs are No Longer Believable

Have you ever had the unnerving experience of questioning something you once believed in? Beliefs form the structure of our life. It can feel devastating when they are no longer believable. When I was a child, I believed in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. I wrote letters to Santa, hunted for my Easter basket, and traded teeth in ...

The Uncertainty of Change

Posted by:

This is the second in a series of posts on Big-Hearted Change. The election is over and change is in the air. Emotions here and abroad are running the gamut from excitement to fear, jubilation to sadness. We really don’t know what to expect. And that’s OK. Why? Because true change is not about knowing what lies ahead of us. It is more about responding to what no longer serves us, and wanting to make it different.

We can learn from our past, ...

The Insanity of Intellectual Change

Posted by:

“There are basically two motivating forces for change. One is fear. The other is love. Fear takes us further into bondage. Love sets us free. Fear separates us from our true self and our purpose. Love reveals and supports who we are. Fear fractures. Love integrates. Fear serves the few. Love serves the many.”
from “Big-Hearted Change” by Marcia ...

That Easter Morning Feeling

Posted by:

Crocus

I LOVE the feeling of Easter Morning – so full of excitement, anticipation, hope, and life. I suppose some of that comes from my childhood. The first thing we did as young children on Easter morning was hunt for our Easter baskets. We knew which one was ours because there was always an egg with our name on it, written in crayon. Somehow it made me feel special to know ...

How To Heal When There’s No Hope

Heart Tree

Mary’s Story
“You’ll be dead in less than a year if you don’t change something”, my naturopathic doctor said.  I sat slumped in her office, barely able to hold my body upright.  Gray-colored skin covered my anemic frame.  Filled with illnesses, viruses, and bacteria, my organs were congested, shutting down.  Looking at my diseased blood under the microscope she asked, ...

Healing and Recent Advances in Genetics

Posted by:

Foreword
To begin with my PhD is not in genetics, but in a little known field of environmental biophysics; thus, I know about various aspects of the relationship between living organisms and their environments, which includes a rudimentary knowledge of genetics. I have had a growing interest in epigenetics for about a decade.

Epigenetics is mostly the study of heritable changes that are not caused by changes in the DNA sequence. To a lesser extent, epigenetics also describes the study of ...
