As so many set resolutions for the New Year, it seems as though the theme is always to do more in 2016. More exercise, more work, more plans, more “stuff” and bigger and better things ahead seem to be the plan. However, sometimes less is actually more.

Sweeping your porch each day is regarded as an important cleansing ritual that prepares your home for new energy. In some of our lives, sweeping has become an activity performed without much thought. In many cases, sweeping is a lost art, replaced by the noisy, efficient vacuum cleaner. But in several cultures and religions, sweeping the front and back porch every morning is regarded as an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy on every level—physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
Often we are only concerned about our spinal subluxations that we often ignore the spiritual subluxations! Here's an article about how to recognize those signs.
This month you’ll have the opportunity to read a mother’s story that will both break your heart and lift it up with love.
