We were born with two incredible freedoms: the freedom of Will and the freedom of Choice. When we learn how to use these freedoms in our lives, we can guide, direct, and select precisely what we will have and what we will set aside.

Does Prayer make a difference?
We often use the term ‘prayer’ to apply to many aspects of our daily lives. You pray that you get a good result on an exam. You pray that there is no traffic for your journey. You pray that the doctor tells you something positive about your health. You pray it doesn’t rain because you forgot your umbrella. You pray for the victims of the latest natural disaster. You pray for your family and friends. You may even pray that someone trips and falls, or…Continue

And what is his magical touch and why does it bring us so much light, joy and presents, to boot?

Lilith part I By Elohim Yael

But have we ever considered the amount and kind of food we take in constantly through our sense receptors? We need to be very careful what food we take in through our eyes, ears, and nose, and what is ingested through what we touch and what touches us. Whatever we take in through all our senses and gather from the external…Continue
“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind. … If you change your mind, you can change your life.” ~ William James
Some coaches teach that it is your attitude which governs everything. I believe this is accurate, and if it is, all you’d have to do to change a situation would be to change your attitude. Of course, to change your attitude, you’d have to change your mind,…Continue
