Book of the Month
Getting into the Vortex
by Esther & Jerry Hicks
Living a better-feeling life really comes down to one thing only: coming into alignment with the Energy of our Source. Abraham reminds us that we are truly Source Energy focused into our physical bodies, and that a conscious Connection to that Broader Non-Physical part of us is necessary if we are to be the joyful Beings that we were born to be. Abraham calls that wonderful alignment Getting into the Vortex.
Through a series of Leading Edge books (New York Times bestsellers), Abraham has emphasized the importance of our conscious alignment with the Source within us. They have let us know that our natural state of Being is inside our Vortex of Creation in complete alignment with Source Energy—and that every aspect of our physical experience reflects our alignment with, or resistance to, that Connection. Everything—from the physical well-being of our bodies, the clarity of our minds, and the abundance we allow to flow, to the satisfaction in every relationship we experience—is impacted by our all-important relationship with our Vortex.
Abraham has helped us to understand that our dominant intent in every day is to get into the Vortex! And now, they have lovingly and specifically guided Jerry and Esther Hicks in the creation of an innovative and valuable tool that promises to get us into the Vortex right now.
This unique recording contains four powerfully guided daily meditations that have been designed to get you into the Vortex of Creation in four basic areas of your life: General Well-Being, Financial Well-Being, Physical Well-Being, and Relationships. In addition, the digital edition includes an extra track called “Mostly Meditation Music”; with fewer words and more music – for all of you who requested it.

CD of the Month
By Stephen Halpern
In 1975, Steven Halpern created a paradigm shift in sound healing when his first album demonstrated how to orchestrate relaxation more effectively, predictably and immediately than traditional classical music.
Thirty five years later, a new paradigm shift expands the parameters of healing music for body, mind and spirit by incorporating beautiful lyrical themes and an occasional taste of rhythm.
Joining him is Michael Manring, the virtuoso bassist well-known to millions of Windham Hill fans, who adds funky bass lines on “First Kiss” and “Now & Zen”, as well as amazing melodic harmonic overtones.
This is an album you’re sure to enjoy listening to, for its sheer beauty, as well as for where it will take you…into the ‘inner peace zone.’
“Everything you love from the pioneer of sound healing — and more! Three songs feature heartfelt melodies riding over seductive grooves that will live inside you long after the music is over.”
— Leading Edge Review

Tea of the Month
Rainbow Rooibos Herbal Tea
|Country of Origin:
The flavor profile of this tea is a pot of gold. A terrific fruit medley with Amaretto notes.
Luxury rooibos, Red Thistle, Cornflower + Calendula petals, Natural flavors.
If you’ve ever read the poem “Who Has Seen the Wind” by British author Christina Georgina Rossetti you’ll understand the virtue of a question like, “who has tasted a rainbow?” Rosetti’s poem asks:
Who has seen the wind? Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling, the wind is passing through.
Inspired by this poem, we at Metropolitan Tea asked the other question mentioned above, namely “who has tasted a rainbow?” (Here we should explain that while the protagonist of Roestti’s poem clearly relates to the world through touch and sound, we tea-folk relate to the world primarily through our taste buds.) We came up with many different answers. The final, and most profound was this: It tastes like a mellow, herbaceous Cederberg Rooibos blended with a medley of fruit and balanced out with a touch of Amaretto. Simple…yet…so deep…you know? (For those of you who relate to world visually, rainbows should also have red thistle, cornflowers, and calendula for the colorful look.) So go ahead, ask and ye shall receive. Taste a rainbow today. Incidentally, rainbows are also caffeine free.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of rooibos for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the pot, cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes. Pour into your cup; add milk and sugar to taste.
Iced tea-brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of rooibos into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the Rooibos. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the Rooibos into the serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
Spotlight on Services:
Reiki is a Japanese word, "Rei" meaning Universe, and "Ki" meaning Energy.
Reiki is an ancient form of hands-on energy healing that was rediscovered in the nineteenth century by Dr. Mikao Usui - Hence the name "Usui method of Natural Healing".
Everybody and everything exists of energy. This energy flows through us, surrounds us and nourishes us; it is the reason why we are able to live.
As we go through life, we may develop blocks that prevent us from the energy flowing through us in an optimum way. If this goes on for a long period of time, we may become emotionally drained or even physically ill. We may experience symptoms like fatigue and depression; our energy becomes imbalanced.

Living with A Himalayan Master…
By Ma Ananda Sangavasini, Reiki Master & Intuitive Life Coach @ the Divine Mine
The beginning of a New Year, new opportunities, a new life. The next step in a new era individually and globally. From the depth of my being , in deep gratitude, I would like to wish all of you, including Christine Wold & her family and all the staff and practitioners at Divine Mine an amazingly joyous, radiant, abundant and prosperous New Year! May we all experience and achieve all these aspects that are already part of us. Now it is time to explode in these, and start to live our full potential!!! May we no longer hide from that which is our birth right and very nature!
As I am writing this, I have spent five months in Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s (Swamiji’s) ashram in India. Being back in Holland sinse a few days, I am still sitting in awe, witnessing the tremendous transformation that has happened in my inner space. Not only my inner space, but my body also feels more alive, radiant, healthy. From having experienced what I have and from what I’ve seen, I know for sure that a beautiful, bright future is on our doorstep! Some might be worried about 2012 getting closer, but I’m telling you, there is nothing to fear. I can say in full clarity through direct experience, that we have an Avatar in our midst who is guiding the whole happening on planet Earth. He is creating something he calls the “eN effect”. Through daily live satsangs people experience things like spontaneous kundalini awakening and levitation, through the internet! The beginning of world peace…Paramahamsa Nithyananda is guiding human consciousness to super consciousness as per his avataric mission. He has said that he is not the only one, there are many more that are supporting humanity in this process. We are all part of this amazing event!
The era of war, rage and pillage is coming to an end. The era of communion with the Divine has arrived, which simply eradicates all violence by its very compassionate nature. Having been initiated in so many truths by Swamiji I am very eager to share with all of you in many different ways!! There will be many special events coming up. We will keep you posted!
I am honored and excited to share this beautiful happening with all of you, and for you to share with me! Finally, true, authentic community living is happening. Yahooooooooo!!!!!!!!
In Eternal Love and Gratitude,
Ma Ananda Sangavasini

Sun in Aquarius 2011
By Carl Klimuk, Astrologer, Master Herbologist & Wholistic Practitioner @ the Divine Mine
Too much work & no play makes for a dull Aries! This is a good month to rediscover your inner child, find new ways (or old ways!) to incorporate playtime into your life. You may also feel like taking greater risks than you normally do so this may not be a good time to make rash decisions or acting on impulse. Entertainment beckons so go to a movie, theatre or sports game that you may have been putting of as of late. Find ways to express yourself creatively. Find a balance between giving & receiving. Be generous unto others as well as to yourself!
It’s time to put on that priorities cap on Taurus because this month you seem split on two separate & important priorities in your life, your relationships & your work. And by relationships I mean all relationships, be it family, friendships or intimate. You’re going to have to juggle your schedule a lot this month, organize yourself better. Try to find compromise between the two, time management is key. Work on rebuilding & focusing more on your health, it will give you more energy to deal with all of your juggling! Focus on what’s beautiful about your partner or any other close personal relationship that you might be in.
Get ready to do some head scratching this month Gemini because you’re in problem solving mode. You have a very focused mind this month so this is a great time to solve long standing problems. Your gifts, skills & talents will be called upon more than usual this month. Don’t be surprised if people start digging into your resources, asking you for money or are asking you to borrow more of your stuff, time or energy. This is a good time to heal emotional wounds or work or put more focus on health & healing.
Your shoes were made for walking Cancer…so go for a walk! There are parts of you that are screaming for a vacation right now, if you can’t go on a big trip then some small ones will do. Find the time to go do some exploring, this can be physically like getting into your car & going for a drive to some local places you may have never been, to visiting a bookstore or library and explore subjects that interest you. Your mind is hungry for knowledge right now so enrolling in a class or workshop is a good idea. Remember the best way to eliminate fears or insecurities is through knowledge & understanding.
Have you been giving of yourself to too many people as of late? Finding that you have very little time or a re feeling disconnected from yourself? Feeling somewhat unappreciated lately? Well then Leo…this month’s for you! You need some freedom & independence to explore yourself & your own needs. Where have you been neglecting yourself? Focus on those priority areas, you among all the signs need to learn how to find a balance between giving unto others & giving back to yourself. To bring clarity into your life look at the big picture & don’t get lost in petty details.
Put on a hard hat & toolbelt…you’re in fixing & repair mode this month. You have entered into a period of ultra productivity Virgo. Problems may arise in your career that requires your skills in order to fix them. There could also be breakdowns within your home that require your attention. You could get an incredible amount of work done this month so use that energy to your advantage & focus on getting done anything which you have put on the backburner or have been procrastinating about. Create a budget, not just for your money but for your time & energy as well. Pay attention to your responsibilities, do things one step at a time & you will move mountains!
For a sign that tends to like balance, peace & harmony this month might seem likes it’s the opposite of all of those things! Expect the unexpected is the catchphrase for this month but don’t panic the lesson is to learn how to go with the flow. Take this as a great opportunity for you to make any necessary changes in any area of your life that need changing or a bit of a reinvention! A generally social month awaits with more than enough invitations to go around, find the time to be around friends, involve yourself more in group work or within an organization.
Feeling a little blah lately? This would be a great time to focus your energy on improving your health & focusing on healing work. Rebuild your energy reserves by taking on a new exercise routine. Feel more balanced by incorporating more sleep & or meditation work. This is also a great month to begin new projects or initiate new plans. Start from a fresh perspective. Have faith & believe in yourself & your abilities. Use art as a means for soulful expression. You’ll have more energy & determination to kick bad habits or addictive behaviors now, stop procrastinating & do!
Time to go to money school Sagittarius! This is a great time to learn or become more aware of your finances, money making opportunities may come up but money spending opportunities are greater! You may also feel the urge to pamper yourself more, engage in comforting or pleasurable activities. Where have you not given back to yourself in awhile? Find comfort & pleasure in travel & learning. This is a time for experiencing gratitude for the things that you have & not to spend too much of your time focusing on those things that you don’t have. Pay more attention to all that is good in your life both large & small.
Your organizational skills will be put to the test this month Capricorn! Multi-tasking will be the norm this month, work & responsibilities will be coming at you from all angles…prioritize! This isn’t just about work though it’s also about social invitations! You may also be in more of a sociable mood yourself so it’s also a good time to throw a get together amongst friends. Meeting new people & mingling proves to be a healthy experience. Communicate your thoughts & ideas to those who would listen. Practice flexibility & keep more of an open mind when encountering new situations.
Your mind is brimming with ideas this month Aquarius! This is a good time to change old ideas & create new ways of thinking. Share your ideas with your friends. Your mind will be extremely active this month so make sure you burn off some of that excess mental energy through exercise otherwise you may find that you have trouble sleeping! Visit the library or bookstore, surf the internet, watch or engage in informative programming, workshops or discussions. There may be times where you feel too scattered, organize your time better.
Home is where the heart is Pisces! You may find your attention turning to domestic matters & responsibilities this month…more so than usual anyway. Reconnect with your family, perhaps in areas that have been neglected or simply try to find ways to become closer. For those in marriages or have partners you may find that your attention turns to spending more time with or rediscovering your in-laws or partners family & vice versa! Trust your feelings; your intuition will be heightened. Emotional sensitivity will be high so give yourself some self-reflection time. Fix up your home or personal space, clean or tidy your home, beautify your environment!
Carl will be facilitating a NEW MOON MEDITATION on Wednesday, February 2nd, LUNAR ASTROLOGY 101 on Saturday, February 5th, ASTROLOGY BASICS Saturday, February 19th and LOVE & NUMBERS on Monday, February 28th.

Do the Right Thing (When You Have Been Wronged)
By Natasha J. Rosewood, Author, Psychic Coach, Spiritual Healer, Workshop Facilitator, TV and Radio Personality
“So, if someone slapped you in the face, would you just walk away?” a friend asked me many years ago after a painful relationship breakup.
“No!” I answered indignantly.
“So, let him know how you feel.”
At that time, I considered this strategy an act of weakness. What would be the point? The horse had already bolted. I was a pile of mush left in the dust.
Later, when I became wiser, I found his advice invaluable.
“Speak your truth,” I now urge my intuitive coaching clients. “Whether the people that hurt you are alive or dead, tell them how you feel, in person or in a letter.
Unloading all those toxic thoughts rattling around in your head and the feelings that cause those nauseous churnings in your stomach is very satisfying. Communicate exactly the impact their actions have had on you, straight from the heart. Telling the truth, with love, about your pain to the person that evoked it is both validating and liberating. This strategy is also healthier than stuffing a tub of Ben and Jerry’s into your craving-for-love-revenge-sick body.
Don’t hold your breath for the big “I’m sorry.”—you might turn a dark shade of purple—but remember you might, just might, enlighten the unenlightened so you and they can grow into a better human being.
Something else happens. You get your power back, the power that was taken from you when you were made to believe you were the cause of their actions.
“And,” as my wise friend pointed out, “it’s just feedback. Most of us don’t have a clue about the impact we have on others. How can we know unless others tell us?”
Natasha will be visiting the Divine Mine again in March do perform readings an facilitate a Soul Talk. Click here for more information.
