Diagnosis: Lupus, The Intimate Journal of a Lupus Patient
When she was suddenly assaulted by myriad baffling symptoms of joint pain and extreme fatigue, the author embarked on an intensive search for diagnosis and treatment of what would be diagnosed as systemic lupus erythematosus, a little-known autoimmune disease that promised to destroy her body, her mind and her spirit. From the pages of her intimate daily journal, we travel with her through chronic joint pain, frustration, anger and grief for her former self to her current state of remission. Far from being a litany of complaints, the author’s pages reveal her unexpected spiritual growth and gratitude for life itself, and she hopes she can be of help to others who suffer from this disease or other chronic illness.

Bringing to Beneficial Law of Attraction: The Manifestation Teachings her extensive studies in ancient and contemporary wisdom and philosophy, Ms Bradford has acquired more then a quarter of a century expertise in Clinical and Transpersonal hypnosis. In spite of her extensive professional credentials, she could never have imagined the singular psychic event that would transform her life. Commencing in the winter of 2004, a hypnosis client, Lena Lees spontaneously channeled twenty-eight sessions delineating Eastern goddess of Compassion, Kuan Yin's modern spiritual scriptures. Witness and transcriber of these sessions, Ms. Bradford then compiled them into the extraordinary manuscript, The Living Word of Kuan Yin: The Teachings and Prophecies of the Goddess of Compassion and Mercy. Distilling from that work, the essence of the goddess teachings, Ms. Bradford now brings to you the highlights of Kuan Yin's world-renowned compassion along with the next generation of manifestation sciences.

Making Claims on Military Life Insurance

L.A. Sosnowski writes: "In honor of Veterans Day this year, I want to help the families of military veterans get their proper benefit checks for life insurance policies held by service persons. IF you have kept up your military group life insurance policy during service (if still in uniform) or after discharge, you (or rather your beneficiaries) should be able to get the VA to accept your claim. Just read this article and go to the link given below to find the claim form."

Widowed or Divorced -- Alone During the Holidays

Widowed or Divorced -- Alone During the Holidays
Elaine Williams ©2008
I understand the pain of being left alone during the holiday season, and the pain is especially acute for a new widow.

For many people, holidays center around family and celebrations, and this time of year can be one of the most difficult times to get through. After the loss of your partner there’s nothing quite as painful as that emptiness, whether it’s a holiday once shared, or an anniversary or birthday.

Even if the loss is due to divorce, it is still a major life change, subject to emotions of loss, anger or perhaps feelings of abandonment. Through the holidays these emotions may surface and be experienced more strongly than other times of the year.

Some may argue that death of a spouse is out of your control and therefore worse than divorce. If the partner you love has divorced you, your choice has been taken away -- similar to losing someone to death. There’s also the added complication of perhaps feeling as if you've been thrown away, an understandably devastating experience. I have experienced both divorce and death, and the aftermath in each instance is neither pretty nor painless.

Does losing a partner in death hurt more than divorce? Losing someone you love, regardless of how that occurs, is a permanent wound on the heart. During holidays and special times, try not to totally isolate yourself, thereby adding to moments of stress or alienation. Allow family and friends to help you get through difficult times, even if it’s something as simple as picking up your children from school or helping you shop for groceries. You can still be alone with your thoughts to sort through your grief, but it doesn’t hurt to allow others to help absorb some of the heartache during this time of year.

Those who really care for you will be glad to assist you on your journey, so be open to accepting help from time to time.
