You can work on undoing an unhealthy habit by exercising present-moment awareness at three distinct times: before the impulse to engage in the habit arises, during the impulse to engage in the habit, and after the impulse to engage in the habit has subsided (or been indulged). Here’s how it works. Before: Explore what leads you to engage in the habit and make choices that can help prevent you from doing so. More
Open book with silhouette figures
The pathway was simple. We came here through our parents. As children of our parents, we are connected to something vast that extends backward in time, literally to the beginning of humanity itself. Through our parents, we are plugged into the very current of life, though we are not the source of that current. The spark has merely been forwarded to us—transmitted biologically, along with our family history. It’s also possible to experience how it lives inside us. More

Lessons From an Animal Communication Expert
I’ve been professionally communicating intuitively with animals for more than 17 years, and casually communicating with them for my entire life. Working with thousands of animals and their humans has created a unique opportunity for me: I’ve learned “straight from the horse’s mouth” what animals truly desire in order have the best relationships they can with their people.

Rainbow in palm of hand
Everyone has lines on their hands that furnish information about their life’s journey.

5 Steps to Start Living Pain-Free
My journey into chronic pain lasted over 15 years. Initially, I had no idea what was happening. A successful spine surgeon, I thought I was bulletproof. But, after years of practice, I began to sweat during surgery, and by 1990, I was experiencing panic attacks and a number of other symptoms, including migraines, rashes, neck pain, tinnitus, obsessive compulsive disorder, and more.

Follow the Signs
I’ve been thinking about how following signs and omens is so central to my life. Since we’re all part of a living, breathing, conscious universe, why wouldn’t it speak to us and give us direction? Why wouldn’t it send us messages and answers, if only we opened the way? So to me, operating without the help of signs would be like refusing to turn on the lights in a darkened room. Why stumble around tripping over furniture when the universe has the bulb? More

An Interview With Kathryn Thomas
Omega: How did you come to find yoga and yoga service? Kathryn: I was a naval helicopter pilot and I fell while I was on deployment. Going through the medical separation process [leaving the military for medical reasons] was pretty tumultuous. My physical therapist recommended I incorporate yoga into my physical therapy because I lost all the feeling in my leg due to the injury and subsequent surgeries. More
