My Christmas Message
by Linda Brady
  A Joyful Winter Solstice
Many of you celebrate the traditional winter holidays of Christmas, Hanukah and Kwanza. I celebrate the Winter Solstice and Christmas. To me they are basically the same. Both holidays represent the time of the year that the Sun or Son returns. December 21 st is the longest night of the year with the promise that the next nights will be shorter. Read more below...

 In the Arms of My Inner Mother
This blessed Christmas season I will again be honoring Mary, the Mother of Jesus in a richer, more personal manner.  To me, she is the symbol of the divine feminine that becomes the divine Mother to my sacred child.  Mary is the physical embodiment of the sanctity of earth through which spirit can manifest.  She joins with many other archetypes of the Great Mother – Eve, Demeter, and Isis to name a few.  Read more below...
 
My Inner Mother Saves the Holidays
As children we were at the mercy of our parents. If they were happy, we were happy. If they weren't, our expectations of magical holidays disappeared.  I remember many Thanksgivings and Christmases being filled with expectations of gifts, candy, family peace and harmony.  I was often disappointed.  Peace and love were disrupted by alcoholic outbursts by my stepfather. My Mother, who loved the holidays, did so much to provide us a beautiful Christmas to have them destroyed by her husband.  My little girl remembered all of that and was sad beginning at Thanksgiving.  Read more below...
Introducing a New Intern
by Natasha Holgersen

Hi, my name is Natalie, but my friends and family call me Natasha! I am an intern, soon to be a graduate of Levels 1 & 2 of the Internship Program with Linda and Michael Brady of Partners for Karmic Freedom, Inc. Linda asked if I would like to write a few words about myself in this Newsletter as a new member of the Community and I happily agreed.

Here I go! I am Russian by nationality, born and grew up in Riga, Latvia and live in Oslo, Norway now. Have I lost you yet? 😊

Let me tell you how I arrived where I am today. I first became interested in self-development work when I was 29 and had my first Saturn return. Due to some unexpected events I became an adult rather abruptly. Since then I’ve studied psychology and astrology and started practicing Reiki. Read More...

On My Mind - A Christmas Primer, The Human Heart & Emotion
by Michael Brady

Did you know that heart disease is the number one cause of death worldwide!
Here are some interesting facts:
 
  • Quantum physics has proven over the last 100 years that matter emerges from energy.
  • Energy is the beginning of reality or the universe, which includes you and me.
  • The electromagnetic spectrum is a range of wavelengths that describe this energy that everything is made of. The physical world we live in exists within these two fields of energy. We are all aware of electricity and magnetism as a part of our everyday life.
  • The human body has an electromagnetic field. Within that the heart is 100 times stronger electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain.
  • The human heart has 40,000 brain cells in it, which sense, feel, learn and remember. Just as the cells in our heads do.
  • The language our hearts process the world with is our sensory input and our emotions. The language our brains process the world with is words and logic.
  • When we think about something, are we ever 100% certain? When we need to be certain of anything, don’t we always use our heart to determine that?
 
Maybe the fact that so many of us are dying from heart disease has more to do with being cut off from our hearts and feelings; and living too much through our head and only what we think. Reconnecting with our hearts more and sorting out our feelings better is sorely needed now more than ever. Read more...
D. Matthew Barto's Column
In Response to Michael's Last Article

As we know how important the concept Serendipity is for Karmic Astrology. Every time I find something else in my life that ‘coincidentally’ jibes with the thing I just read in Linda and Michael’s book, or in one of the newsletters, it seems worth making a note of, and that’s what this month’s column is about.

I've been reading a history of philosophy, a survey that boils down some of these massive philosophical works from people like Plato or Aristotle or Kant into a chapter or two, and the recent chapter I was reading while preparing this column was about Hegel and his version of dialectics. Simply put, dialectics is a way of thinking about something by imagining it as a unity of opposing forces. Thesis and Antithesis collide, and from their interplay we get a new idea. Read more...
