July 2006 Merlian Newsletter



Dear Readers,

July’s flower is the water lily or larkspur.

In the pagan wheel of the year July ends at or near to Lughnasadh or Lammas. It is a Gaelic holiday celebrated on the full moon nearest the midpoint between the summer solstice and autumnal equinox, during the time of the harvesting.

The phrase “Fourth of July” in American culture is a reference to the Independence Day celebration in the United States . This year it marks the 400th birthday of the country.

As you know PS-Magazine has launched a podcasting website , where you can download as well listen to Psychic & Spiritual podcasts. Please be sure to listen to the broadcasts!

Remember to keep checking Holistic USA and Holistic New York for updated information on psychic news and events throughout the country as well as the New York area.

We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to the magazine and for your feedback. We look forward to receiving more articles in the future.

Please feel free to forward this newsletter to contacts on your email list who might find it of interest.

Books You The Smart Patient by Mehmet C. Oz, M.D. and Michael F. Roizen, M.D.

“No matter where you are in the mix, navigating through the health care system can be a complicated process. This book helps give power back where it belongs — to the patient. It encourages questioning, investigating and challenging to become informed. Make no mistake — while the tone of this book is often irreverent, the message is important: being a smart patient empowers you to receive the best health care possible. This is a must have reference book for every one of us.”

Cosmos and Psyche — Intimations of a New World View by Richard Tarnas “This book is about astrology, but as the author says, “not the astrology of the fortune teller and the newspaper columns.” This is not about cheap predictions of the future or personal zodiac signs. Instead, this is about planets and the fascinating archetypal patterns that emerge as each planet shifts into and out of alignment. Tarnas has taken astrology to a new height — to a cosmology — a new method of understanding the universe.”

Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’: A Life Altering Film

“The vast majority of scientists agree that global warming is real, it’s already happening and that it is the result of our activities and not a natural occurrence. The evidence is overwhelming and undeniable. We’re already seeing changes. Glaciers are melting, plants and animals are being forced from their habitat, and the number of severe storms and droughts is increasing.” Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth

Other US States Gregg Braden Workshops Braden has the ability to bring the ancient wisdom of our past together with the technology and science of our future. Apparently a coded message has been found within the DNA in each cell of our bodies that shows unprecedented evidence that we are part of a greater existence. All I can say is when the next Gregg Braden workshop is available, book yourselves into it as quickly as possible — absolutely not to be missed. Gregg Braden is a foremost international authority on science and spirituality. Read this for his 2006 Schedule!

People Using Hypnosis to capture “the Muse”: How to enhance creativity, overcome “Writer’s Block” and other artistic issues “As a practicing hypnotherapist I have treated a variety of artists — writers, dancers, painters and singers — who have come to me because they have reached an impasse. This may manifest as a “block”, or the feeling that the “joy has gone out of it,” or the sense that his or her work has “plateaued “or become stale. While each artist’s individual problems and circumstances are unique there are some commonalties in what each person faces, and in the solutions that we reach with hypnosis.”

Holistic Events The Biology of Belief An enthusiastic, riveting speaker, Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., explores the idea of how there are “master switches” in us through which our thoughts and attitudes create the conditions of our bodies and of our place in the world. We can “reprogram” our life patterns and unleash incredible capabilities, including greater energy, health, and longevity. Our cells have an amazing capacity for life, and so do we. See this article for his 2006 schedule, which includes an appearance in NYC!
