Autumn 2009 — Expressions of Spirit

The Therapist, by Orna Ben-Shoshan
The New Earth, by Aaron Pyne

Power Thoughts

Old thought: There is no hope for our planet.
New thought: The Earth is healing now, and change is a natural part of the healing process.

Old thought: I am afraid for the future.
New thought: Everything that is happening is in divine order, and I accept the changes that are necessary for a healed world.

Old thought: The animals in my dreams are always scary.
New thought: What are these animals trying to tell me?

We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors;
we borrow it from our Children.

—Indian proverb

All things share the same breath—the beast, the tree,
the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.

—Chief Seattle

Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence.
—Indian proverb

All birds, even those of the same species, are not alike, and it is the same with animals and with human beings. The reason WakanTanka does not make two birds, or animals, or human beings exactly alike is because each is placed here by WakanTanka to be an independent individuality and to rely upon itself.
—Shooter Teton Sioux

Certain things catch your eye,
but pursue only those
that capture your heart.

—Indian proverb


Welcome to the Autumn 2009 edition of LightWork!

This issue is devoted to different expressions of spirit. The Universe is brimming with life in all dimensions, whether angelic, nature spirits, ascended masters, or extraterrestrials, and they are all available to help us heal and evolve into Light.

In this issue, we are also featuring a new column that we'll do at least once per year, if not more often:  The Conscious Consumer. Integrity is very important, and as conscious consumers, we can seek out the businesses that act with integrity. We will endeavor to shed some light on some questionable business practices and interactions with companies that we have experienced firsthand. We hope that this information will help the spiritually minded consumer make informed decisions.

Featured Interview

LightWork interviewed Chris Lüttichau, author of Animal Spirit Guides: Discover Your Power Animal and the Shamanic Path. He talks about the role that nature and power animals play in our world and in our lives.
