It’s the start of a new year and with it comes lots of ideas for going forward. If you’ve taken a little time over the holidays to do some quiet contemplating, along with possibly some journalling, or even jotting down a few notes, then you may have come up with some inspiration that will help you to welcome the year on a positive note.

The past year has likely been a stressful whopper for most people. With all the restrictions of movement, and wearing masks, lack of physical contact with family and friends, and worrying about catching harmful germs that may cause serious health problems, it’s no wonder we all need a new year, a new beginning, and finding new ways to look at life and the new year in positive and healthy ways. This is what 2022 is all about, a new beginning!

Let’s see, what can we do to make this new year filled with peace, joy, love, laughter, good health, and abundance in all things? I like to listen to Louise Hay’s CD on affirmations. She says we are creating our lives all the time with our thoughts. We’re either creating negatively or positively and the results will be one way or the other. Therefore I like to remind myself to think positive thoughts as much as possible. That way I can make my life as upbeat, happy and fulfilled as possible. Change your thinking and change your life! That’s my motto for 2022! I know I will get better at thinking positive thoughts, the more I practice doing it. It will be my challenge for this new year.

I have had another unique and enjoyable time putting together this new year issue, and sharing time, knowledge, and energy with so many wonderful individuals has been a true delight. Once again there is an abundance of knowledge and information in these pages that is meant to help you learn more about natural health and wellness. Keeping our body, mind, and spirit in tip-top shape is done by paying attention to our thoughts and then doing the legwork to discover the perfect places, practices, and/or people who can help us fulfill our wellness goals.

I noticed when the articles were coming in, there appeared to be a theme among them that focused on peace and love. I thought, how cool is that? These are two of the most precious things in our world for good health. It reminded me that we are all connected on a cellular level and I believe the contributing writers were guided to write about what was most important and most needed during this particular time on the planet.

I feel there is something in every article and every advertisement that touches on some aspect of peace and love. Everything that is shared here comes from the heart and is meant to give you, the reader, a sense of peace, harmony, love, and well-being. It’s all meant to help you along your path to wholeness and wellness.

To begin with, Jade:||:Cathy Chicoine was divinely inspired to write her latest article, Why a Personal Commitment to the Path of Peace Can Change the World (p. 16). This beautiful title conveys a lot. She says, “The Source of our true power is within us,” and by claiming our inner power, that will help us to empower others and thus to change the world for the better. This is her commitment to the path of peace, which is filled with love. I personally believe we can all do this.

There is lots of love and peace at Ravenheart Farms, and in 2022 Carol Marriott invites everyone to join the celebration and share the love in honour of Ravenheart’s 15th Year Anniversary (p. 22). It’s a celebration and reunion for all those who have ever been at the farm and those who would like to come for the first time. It will be held on May 20–23 weekend and there will be fun for all! Check out her article for more details.

Andrea Austin, in her article Sacred Commerce–Bringing Love and the “Soul” Back Into How We Help in the World (p. 30), speaks about bringing the sacredness of economics and flow back into lives and our businesses, and see how they go together, together in love.” She says it’s about learning the importance of giving and receiving, so these two things are in balance. Her article is inspired by Charles Eisenstein’s book, Sacred Economics. She adds, “It’s time to help the world and others through love.”

Wishing everyone a new year filled with peace, love, and good health!

(The spirit in me honours the spirit in you)
