Winter is a slow spooling-inward of nature’s energy, and your own energy follows this cue. Outside of the holidays, it is a still and restful time when people yearn to cozy up indoors. The long nights invite internal processes. Contemplation is self-awareness, a reflective and integrative exploration of your heart and life’s purpose. Approach your inner sanctuary with neutrality, and enter the gates of your soul temple with reverence. Be in awe at the wonder of you.


Feeling concerned is a natural reaction to stressful situations and that’s why people opt for wellness therapy as it aims at promoting overall wellness, as opposed to treating particular illnesses or conditions. This form of therapy frequently employs a combination of physical, emotional, and spiritual practices to help individuals attain balance and harmony. Activities such as yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and massage are some examples of wellness therapies. Here are some coping skills to practice when the panic hits:

Eat well.

Eat nourishing foods throughout the day, as this can help balance your energy and mood.

Focus on your breathing.

Take deep breaths, and really be present in your body.

Practice good sleep habits.

This one speaks for itself.

Practice acceptance.

Work on accepting that you cannot control every outcome, and that everything does not need to be perfect.

Work with plants.

Some popular natural remedies such as passion flower, lemon balm, and white chestnut can help ease anxiety. Please check with your care provider first if you decide to try these herbs.

Spiritual Application: Happiness

The present moment is the only moment available to us, and it is the door to all moments.
—Thich Nhat Hanh

Happiness is a sweet contentment that comes from inside your soul. The key to this well-being lies in your own personal satisfaction with who you are and how you interact with the world. Happiness is not a commodity to be sought after; it lives within you, and can only be tapped with an elevated consciousness. Align your life goals with your true soul path, and happiness flourishes.

Soul Challenge: Find Your Bliss

Find your bliss by meditating on the times this week when you lived as you have been called. This means noticing the moments where your actions, soul, and heart were all in alignment. Begin by making a list of actions you took in any given situation that made you feel good. These might include creating art, an act of generosity, or keeping your high vibration when things were hard. You may find a pattern, or a common link between your actions and your happiness.

Global Apothecary: Shiatsu

Shiatsu is a Japanese massage therapy based on a combination of traditional Chinese medicine and western physiology and pathology. The word shiatsu means “finger pressure.” It is a full-body massage practice that supports balance and wellness in the body’s energy systems—and it feels great. Shiatsu is a great complementary therapy that combines well with western medicine.
