Seeking New Boundaries - Is That Your No or Mine?

Seeking New Boundaries - Is That Your No or Mine?

By Kathy Custren

So many of us seek to define new boundaries. It seems to happen all the time no matter how we define our world, or even our larger cosmic universe. When we get right down to the words we use in setting various boundaries, it can be very enlightening.

One of the first impressions of seeking new boundaries, to me, was in history class. Remember studying the great explorers who sailed on mighty vessels?…

The Message for 2017 is Balance and Harmony


By Kathy Custren


Balance and Harmony Take Center Stage in the Year Ahead

The message of cosmic consciousness intercepted is strong and focused when it comes to both balance and harmony for the year ahead. We are encouraged to keep this greater sense, this larger view, of balance and harmony at the forefront of everything we say and do. As we wonder why, the old Police song intones, “Every breath you…

The Most Accurate News You Can Trust


By Kathy Custren


Human Interest Relies on the Most Accurate News

As we meet the New Year 2017, so much of our attention is directed to the accuracy of the news we read, hear, and experience. For much of the last century, human interest has been drawn to the regular publication of news on which we can rely. First in print, then on television, we turn to the news media on a regular basis for the facts we need to thrive…

Hi Kathy,

If you decide to publish my article on the Seth material (posted in Articles this week) I have also made an audio file of the article.

It is in Dropbox at:

Hi Kathy,

Hope you are doing well and enjoying summer turning to fall, my FAVORITE time of year.  Love the Scorpio energy.

Anyway....just posted an article.  I will submit an audio version but probably not until tomorrow.  Saw your message on Facebook and will start working immediately on seasonal articles.

I thank you for your support and let me know what you think of the article.

Hello Kathy, Just wanted to let you know that I have changed my article as you recommended. The details are in the private message I sent you here

At 12:15pm on May 9, 2016, Debbie Peluso said…

Hi Kathy,

Hope you are doing well.  Wanted to let you know I just submitted an article.  Thank you in advance for any feedback you may have.

Hi Kathy

I've been working on the way to successfully write my articles for Om. I've been editing and re-editing the last one and getting feedback, etc.

I think I'm ready to post and wondering where to add the images when I submit the article?

I asked RAK a week or so ago and not seeing a reply. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place for answers. I've been looking in my inbox. 

Thanks for being there, and hoping it's okay to ask this question here as I haven't been successful in discovering another way....YET! I'm exploring!

Hi Kathy,

I submitted an article April 12th but have not received acknowledgement of its receipt or feedback.  I wrote to two of the editors who have been reviewing my articles but did not receive responses from them.  I'm wondering if something is wrong with my settings because I usually receive responses very promptly.  Should I resubmit the article or am I supposed to be submitting it via the Spotlight Group?  Thank you.



At 10:43am on February 22, 2016, Debbie Peluso said…

Hi Kathy,

Hope you are doing well.  I submitted an article last week entitled It's Only Love.  Was wondering if you had an opportunity to take a look at it.  I am working to get away from the astrology (a little bit ) and venture into new waters.  I also just submitted one a few moments ago on Evenmindedness.  That one I definitely got away from astrology.  I'm sure astrology will still come into my writings since it is what I do and I relate to it, but I want to take your advice and expand my writing.  Thank you for your input.  It means a lot!



At 7:22pm on February 16, 2016, Debbie Peluso said…

Hi Kathy.

First of all....I am so excited and honored to have been selected as a spotlight writer!!  I've had butterflies in my stomach all day from excitement and it has motivated me to want to just write, write, WRITE!!  Thank you soooo much!  I just submitted another article.  Based on our previous conversation, it's "kind of" on astrology but not really.  I'm trying to venture into other grounds.  I think I am going to start focusing a bit more on the Kabbalastic Tree of Life in my next few articles.  I thank you for your input and again.....my heart is filled with gratitude and honor to have been promoted in the OMTimes community!

At 3:31pm on January 28, 2016, Debbie Peluso said…

Oops.....I resubmitted the article on Pisces because I forgot to put my bio in.  So the second submission is the corrected one.


At 3:27pm on January 28, 2016, Debbie Peluso said…

Hi Kathy,

I just submitted another article.  I know we spoke about me submitting different articles than just on astrology.  I did submit this one on Pisces only because it's the last of the Zodiacal signs and I wanted to complete the sequence.  I thank you for your help and I will begin writing on different topics, such as the Tree of Life that we discussed.  

Thank you and blessings,
