During the Summer of 1999, hundreds of cows promenaded through the streets of Chicago. Life-size fiberglass bovine beauties were painted, pomaded and all dressed up for the city by Chicago artists, architects, photographers and designers, including several celebrities. Since that summer, many cities across the world have taken a fundraising lesson from the smart folks in Illinois and their wildly decorated cows. Denver even had a “moooooving” exhibition in 2006.
Now you can have a BFF (bovine friend forever) of your own. Pacific Trading has created these little metal cow models as a hinged box with golden and sparkly rhinestone accents, with names like Angelicow, Celtic Cow, Moolin the Magician, and Tutancowmon.

YOUNGER NEXT YEAR: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy – Until You’re 80 and Beyond
by Chris Crowley & Henry S. Lodge   

Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy – Until you’re 80 and Beyond. The key to the program is found in Harry’s Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don’t eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work–and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation. Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

STALKING THE TRICKSTERS: Shapeshifters, Skin-walkers, Dark Adepts & 2012
by Christopher O’Brien

The hidden cultural subject of tricksters, redefined from a new, fresh perspective: Are trick-sters using knowledge of collective superstition to in-habit and manipulate the world?
Cryptids, elementals, were- wolves, vanishing hitchhikers, demons and dancing devils have permeated human belief for millennia, but today, very little is publicly known about The Trickster persona. But why not? And who are they? What is their agenda? Graced by many names, including fools, sages, coyotes, Loki, men-in-black, skinwalkers, witches, Tricksters can provide us a direct conduit to the un- known in the 21st Century. Can these denizens of phe- nomenal events be attempting to communicate a warning to humanity in this uncertain age of prophesized change? O’Brien uncovers intriguing accounts that suggest there are, indeed, beings walking among us able to utilize fantastic abilities.

My name is Pam and I can see ghosts. Because of this ability, I am often called to investigate suspected hauntings. This is one of my stories.
I received a call from a neighbor convinced she had a ghost as she was “hearing things” in her closet. I agreed to investigate and arrived at her apartment later that day. I didn’t see or sense anything. I followed her to the closet, still not seeing or sensing anything. “Do you hear that?” she whispered. Honestly, I didn’t, but as I began to shake my head no, I did hear something. A very, very faint something deep in the closet. Curious, I walked into the closet and the noise stopped. I waited a moment and it started again, this time coming from a large box.
“Is it a ghost?” I shook my head, it wasn’t a ghost but I wasn’t sure what it was. “Stand back,” I said as I walked to the box and cautiously pulled it open… and was greeted by 5 pairs of green eyes staring at me. A bit startled, I pulled back and heard a very large meow, followed by purrs. She didn’t have a ghost; she had a cat with a litter of 4 kittens. She was disappointed, as she’d hoped for a ghost and not cats. She sent me away with the box of cats, who were later all adopted. Boo (mom), Casper, Slimer, Igon, and Scooby all have great homes. Sometimes it isn’t a ghost. Sometimes it’s a box of cats. Next time, who knows what it’ll be…

May we all ring in the year 2010 with great Love and Gratitude. May we all focus on what’s right in our world, truly making this a year of countless possibilities. May we all soar high above our fears and learn only to celebrate what is right in our world. May we all give back with Grace and Gratitude, pouring out into the world our blessings of all that is.

As the New Year progresses into the months of February and March, we can readily feel the shifts that are underway. Powerful physical, spiritual, mental and emotional transformations are taking place. The recent cycles of the solar and lunar eclipses coupled with the Saturn/Pluto square (exact on 1/31), challenge us to ride the cosmic waves of change. We are called to release all that no longer serves our growth and reinvent our lives anew. Saturn, the planet of karma, and Pluto, the planet of transformation, require that we elevate our consciousness. We will need to connect with our higher destiny, (what we came to do at this critical time on earth) as we transition from the old to the higher realms of the new. We are compelled to live from our true essence, rather than our unconscious personalities.[/caption]

During the month of February and March, both Saturn and Mars are retrograde. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, will remain in retrograde until May 30th. The retrograde is an internal process that takes place, allowing us to slow down and deepen the needs of the planet involved. During the Saturn retrograde, opportunities to redefine our goals and reconsider our relationships will prevail. Some relationships may dissolve, while new ones may be formed. Mars, the ruler of Aries, will remain in retrograde until March 10th. This is a time to slow down and review our actions with thoughtful and deliberate regard. We are encouraged to seek new ways to infuse more vitality and creativity into our authentic self- expression. Wherever Saturn and Mars appears in your natal chart, will reveal the focus of attention.

On February 13th, the New Moon underscores our connections with one another. This marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year, The Year of the Metal Tiger. The Tiger is a totem for strength, determination, self-reliance and instinct. We can employ these characteristics as we embark on new endeavors, in the face of all obstacles that may arise during the course of the year. On February 28th, the Virgo Full Moon offers an opportunity to organize our lives in the areas of work, health and service. On March 15th, the Pisces New Moon emphasizes compassion for our fellow man. Artistic and spiritual pursuits are also highlighted. On March 11th, Mars turns direct. We are advised to move forward with caution, weighing all options and avoiding tendencies towards impulsivity. On March 29th, the Libra Full Moon forms an unsettling cardinal T square, represented by the Sun, Moon- Saturn and Pluto configuration. Relationships may feel under pressure, as issues of how we relate to one another are brought to the forefront. How we can best work together, is the common goal.

As human beings, we are either weak or strong energetically for what we want in life. This applies literally to everything, whether its is a loving relationship, a successful career, spiritual enlightenment, or freedom from emotional and physical pain. Our awareness en- compasses many levels and our unconscious mind and autonomic nervous system proc- ess billions of transactions per minute. Often the truth in our conscious thoughts is oppo- site to the truth in our awareness below the surface of what we are thinking.

To create the life we want, we need to establish congruence throughout the levels on which we operate – the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, psychic, and spiritual. The Yuen Method does this with ancient techniques from Chinese Energetic Medicine combined with the practical application of quantum physics. It works on the quantum level and transforms our energy field so that we support what we want in life – whether it is vibrant health, freedom from stress, tension, and fear, or a closer connection to our life’s purpose. The basic premise is that we are either weak or strong for any given issue. With the Yuen Method we find the weakness in any of the systems in the body, mind, and Spirit, and change the weakness to strength. This results in the elimina- tion of pain, illness, emotional distress, and failed relationships. Often this can happen in a single session. This transformational healing modality was developed by Dr. Kam Yuen, a 35th generation Tai Chi and Kung Fu grand master. Learn more at Dr. Yuen’s website,

As Certified Practitioners of the Yuen Method since 2003, Kathy Buchenauer and Jerry Ziegler offer classes, private sessions, and practice groups. They will be offering a free presentation of the Yuen Method at the Shin- ing Lotus Metaphysical Bookstore on Sunday, February 7 at 2 in the afternoon. Call 303-758-9113 to register.
