Reconciliation of the Heart
By Patti Ashley, Ph.D.
Current research has discovered that the heart is the regulatory organ, not the brain. In order to feel safe and secure, the head and the heart have to be in coherence. Stressful emotions such as anger, frustration, and anxiety create irregular and erratic heart beats, or what is known as an incoherent heart rhythm pattern, while positive emotions such as appreciation, care, joy, and love create highly ordered, smooth and harmonious heart beats, known as a coherent heart rhythm.
Stress Management Tips for Better Immunity
Your immune system is significantly impacted by your level of stress, attitude, mood and emotional state. When you’re optimistic and happy, your immune system functions properly. But constant exposure to stress hormones does not do a body good.
Everyone has stress; it's an inevitable part of life. However, if you’re seriously stressed out for a long time, you’re going to be more prone to illness. During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all dealing with more stress than usual. This makes knowing how to handle stress more important than ever.

By Jessie Gibbs
Life can feel pretty overwhelming these days. Though stress is something we normally experience in everyday life, living during the COVID-19 pandemic has made a moment of peace already feel like a victory. So, what should you do when you feel like you're carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders?

How to Use Stress to Improve Your Life
By Dr. Dravon James
When we listen to the news there’s always a story about shortages. You’ve heard the reports, jobs are in short supply, affordable housing is in short supply, safety, clean water, and even good men are hard to come by. But there is one thing that you’ve never heard of being in short supply, and that is stress. There is an abundance of stress. It’s everywhere. When your alarm clock goes off in the morning, you wake up to the traffic report, “It’s a parking lot on 95.” You get in the car, turn on your radio and hear that the Dow Jones is plummeting and the economy is in danger. The kids’ school calls you at 10 am and you need to leave work. You arrived to work late due the traffic on 95, but now you’re leaving early because of a child emergency. You’re conflicted because job security is in short supply. Stress and the guarantee of more stress ranks up there with death and taxes; in other words, it’s inevitable.

JOURNEY TO WHOLENESS
We Do Not Walk Alone
By Jude LaClaire, Ph.D.
In difficult times where do I turn? I often look to persons, living or who have gone from this life, who inspire or challenge me to think differently. Most recently I have been so encouraged and heartened by the life and words of John Lewis. He wrote an OP ED for the New York Times, “Together, You can Redeem the Soul of Our Nation.” He encourages us, “ Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble.” He concluded, “So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide.”

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Happy birthday Virgo! You’re in a powerful time of improving relationships and prosperity. Meditate on releasing betrayals and other past wounds that now block intimacy. Allow yourself to feel the anger and disappointment that’s lodged in your body and soul so it can be fully flushed out. Be patient with your healing. A new partnership coming in will progressively open doors in your heart. Current bonds get better if you’re already partnered. Finances flow as you feel more self-worth from being relieved of old fears and limiting thoughts!
