3 Steps to De-Stress With Stillness
By Diana Cole
One of the most powerful things you can do to counteract feelings like stress, anxiousness, and anger is cultivating kindness towards yourself and others,” Diana says. “In order to achieve this, one of the best ways I know is to adopt a practice of stillness, even if you can’t yet imagine slowing down and making time for it. It may seem next to impossible now, but you can do it!
Shifting Our Planet
By Judith Corvin-Blackburn, LCSW, DMin
“Everything is energy, that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want, and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy, it’s physics.” Albert Einstein
Humanity is in the midst of a great evolutionary leap. We are moving from the limitations of being a 3D human into the expanded abilities of a 5D human. Our deepening of compassion for ourselves and others, the awareness of the unity of all things, and tapping into high of levels of creativity unlock ancient codes in our DNA which opens us more and more to our 5th dimensional frequency. As this happens, our bandwidth of perception increases exponentially, and our ability to experience and understand ourselves as energy beings expands.
JOURNEY TO WHOLENESS
Keep On Keeping On
By Jude LaClaire, Ph.D.
As seasons are changing, we are still living with COVID-19 and all it brings with it. Social contacts are limited, some jobs have not returned, and many people’s economic reality is grim, while social unrest and continuing focus on the reality of inequity takes our attention. Education is affected at every level, as are children from infancy to early adulthood. Each of you may be dealing with a different set of difficulties brought about and accentuated by these continuing challenges. Uncertainty is now rooted in our daily life.

Remember in the movie 28 Days when Sandra Bullock had to wear a sign around her neck that read, “Confront me if I don’t ask for help?”
Well, that’s me right now.
I’ve struggled with asking for help all my life, but now the Universe has confronted me, so I’m taking that baby step of asking: Can you help?
Looking back, I realize I was just a kid when I started Evolving Woman magazine in 1994 at age 29. I was full of hope and vigor and inspired by a personal exodus into self-actualization. The magazine never made a lot of money, but it touched people, and that impact – along with a stellar team of helpers – fueled my perseverance. Seventeen years later, the magazine continues as a passion project that I feel is a gift to the community. But sometimes life steps in with unavoidable changes.
Others have told me that when things get tough, I get creative and hustle to break through. And while this is true, when circumstances – such as a pandemic – are out of your control, it’s not as easy (or even possible) to push through.
When Kansas City went into the stay-at-home order, I immediately canceled the print edition of Evolving Magazine and switched my focus to the digital version. Our advertisers – small businesses that were shut down – were unable to advertise, so I ran their ads at no charge. Since then, we’ve continued to run online only, and I’ve readjusted rates to offer a deep discount to accommodate the absence of a print edition.
I apologize for not sending a personal note sooner; I wasn’t sure myself which direction life and the magazine would take, and I didn’t want to reach out until I knew something more solid.
And what I know is this: these are different times, and without help, Evolving Magazine will struggle to survive.
Since the magazine’s inception, I have not asked for monetary help. However, even as a digital publication, there are expenses that must be paid. As much as I would love to continue to offering Evolving Magazine as a gift, I must be sure to allow time for projects that cover my expenses. So I’m asking for your help, if you desire and are able.
A few ways you can help:
A personal donation of any amount would help immensely to cover operating expenses. No amount is too small, and your donation will be used to continue to provide quality, enriching, local content. If you feel inclined, my Venmo account is Jill-Dutton-3, PayPal is email@example.com, or mail a check to Evolving Magazine, LLC, P.O. Box 3735, Shawnee, KS 66203.
Advertise your business at EvolvingMagazine.com. We’ve always had a strong following online but it has increased substantially during this period. There are a few opportunities for advertising: 1. Place an annual listing in our Holistic Online Directory (prices range from $250-$700 per year—one-time payment). 2. Run your display advertisement on our homepage (1/3 the usual advertising rate) or feature your business with a banner ad ($250 per month). 3. Place a display ad in our monthly eBlast ($150). 4. Run an article on our homepage for one month ($100-will be noted as paid content).
Although I’m no longer a kid, one thing that hasn’t changed is my desire to continue to deliver the enlightening, moving, and educational wellness and self-actualization articles we have provided for the past 17 years. Thank you to our volunteer staff, our advertisers, local artists, and our readers, for your support through the years. I believe good news is needed now more than ever, and we can continue to bring good news to Kansas City and the world – with your help.
