A campaign of wellness

The political season is in full swing. Politics have made their way into just about every inch of everyday life: from the radio to television to the neighbors’ yards and bumper sticker collections.

With all the stump speeches and promises being made, we here at Nature’s Pathways thought we’d get in on the act. No, we’re not running for office, but we do want to play an important role in your life — and maybe even change it for the better.

Our vow

So here it is, our very own campaign to become a force of wellness and positivity.

Our mission is simple. The Nature’s Pathways team is dedicated to making our world better.

Our goal is to empower our expert authors — and you — to make a difference. We know that a strong community is key to accomplishing this, which is one reason we’re such staunch supporters of local business. Above all else, we are committed to providing you and those you care about the information needed to make educated decisions about fitness, nutrition, organic and sustainable living, and more!

We urge you to join us in this vision. Take a look through the pages of this month’s magazine. Here you will find excellent examples of how much our team and authors care about making a difference, as well as oodles of resources and information to help you achieve your own personal wellness goals.

Your call to action

Before you vote next month, it’s a good idea to take stock of your own values and see how they compare to those of the candidates in your local and state races. Now’s also a great time to take stock of how you yourself are living your values. Do you practice what you preach? Have you encouraged those in your community to be well?

If not, now is the time to get involved. Share your knowledge and resources with others in need.

Offer a copy of this magazine to friends, family and neighbors and discuss what you’ve learned. Join the dialogue on Nature’s Pathways’ Facebook page or on Twitter.

Remember: We can have a better world. We just need to work for it.

“Ahhhhh-ahh-ahh-ahh-ahh... hooked on a feelin’. I’m high on believin’ that you’re in love with meeeeeeee.” No joke — that was the first song that popped into my head as I began to write this article. I felt like I needed a catchy, light-hearted song that would inspire me to get…
Insecurity is based on personal uncertainty that is kept in check by negative self-perceptions and assumptions: limiting concepts that can primarily exist for lack of stepping outside of limited life experiences and broadening your self-perceptions through actively exploring your talents and capabilities. It is primarily through actions and interactions that…
Crystal grids are made by placing stones in a geometric pattern, with the specific purpose of directing energy toward a goal. When a grid is created and empowered with sacred intention and prayer, each stone within the grid amplifies the qualities and energy of the other stones, and they synchronize,…
Life presents us with one simple choice at any given moment: to keep our heart open to love and invite truth into our awareness, or to withdraw into fear and resist. We face this choice again and again, without end. It is within our closest relationships that this choice is…
Without touch, mammalian babies don’t survive. Touch is how an infant first explores its world, learns its boundaries and develops trust. Lack of touch is part of isolation and loneliness. Touch, while it is an essential part of intimacy, can be misused and be violating or injurious. People hurt by…
There is a time for everything. A farmer knows this very well. A year of work is planned in the cold winter months. Seeds are ordered and tools are fixed. The ground sits waiting under a blanket of snow. There is a sense of anticipation and hope that all of…
“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” —George Eliot We are a blend of different expressions. Each of us is born with a special purpose, a unique role to play that no one can fill. It’s no longer about living our life from the expectations, demands…
More people are becoming familiar with Reiki (pronounced “ray-key”) and its many benefits. A study done in 2007 by the National Health Interview Survey indicates that 1.2 million adults and 161,000 children received one or more sessions of energy healing therapy such as Reiki in the previous year. Reiki works…
With each passing year, more Wisconsin families choose cremation over a conventional casketed cemetery burial when it comes to end-of-life choices for our loved ones. Since 2011, cremations have outnumbered burials in Wisconsin. What is the impact on our environment? Are we moving in the right direction? Before getting into…
Auricular acupuncture is acupuncture of the outer part of the ear. With 200 points on this small surface, just about any condition can benefit from a few points added to the ear. But why the ears? The ear is a microsystem for the whole body. This means that various sections…
Lavender is native to the Mediterranean region. It was used in ancient Egypt as part of the process for mummifying bodies. Lavender’s use as a bath additive originated in Persia, Greece and Rome. The herb’s name comes from the Latin lavare, which means “to wash.” Historically, lavender was used as…
In its essence, the message is always one message. We live here on Earth in many-ness, yet together, we form a whole. All of the expressions of revelation heard down the ages are sounds of the same voice calling us toward unity. We live, today, in a world of forgetfulness,…
