The World Wide Web as a Healing Tool–Evoking the Essence of Essences

Posted by admin on Jun 12, 2009

2009 by Donna Cunningham, MSW  (Part One of Two)

For the past 11 years, during the richly fertile earth sign Taurus, we at Vibration have paused to reflect on what our ezine has achieved over the past year, how far we have come since the last anniversary of our birth, and what new seeds we wish to plant in the years to come.

From the earliest issues, in 1998, your editors, who doubled as web designers and frequent contributors, explored the seemingly endless potentials of a web-based magazine.  Freed of the costs of color printing, paper, and postage, we worked for a visually-enhanced and pleasing format.

As the work unfolded and continued to develop, however, we slowly understood that, far from being a magazine devoted only to tracking the healing potentials of the essences, we were also beginning to tap into a vast, unsuspected resource–the healing power of the internet itself.

It’s Vibration Magazine’s 11th Anniversary!

Posted by GreaterWellbeing on Jun 6, 2009

By Deborah Bier, PhD, co-Editor and Publisher of this blog.

7685609thbVibration Magazine, the Journal of Vibration and Flower Essences has now officially entered into its second decade of publication. From my and my co-Editor, Donna Cunningham’s viewpoint, it doesn’t seem possible that we have published over 40 issues, though we indeed have done so.

It’s Offical–Vibration Joins the Blogosphere!

Posted by admin on Jan 16, 2009

Today, March 8, 2009, Vibration Magazine is converting to a blog.  For the past 11 years, we the editors — Deborah Bier, PhD, and Donna Cunningham, MSW — have edited and co-created Vibration Magazine, the premier online educational journal about flower essences and other vibrational remedies.  In that time, we’ve published over 400 articles by essence practitioners, makers, and users. (Flower essences are not to be confused with essential oils used for aromatherapy — we don’t publish articles on that topic.)

Unlike most essence newsletters, we do not focus on a single company, but rather the broadest span, and we do not publish promotional material.  Keeping our focus on education, we’ve specialized in theme issues on particular topics like essences and children, essences for stress, and essences for career success. You can mine that  vast educational resource by clicking on the archives page on the right.

We love to stay on the forefront and to reach new audiences, and that is why we’re converting Vibration magazine to a blog.  Rather than quarterly issues with a dozen articles, we intend to publish one article a week.  It’ll work out to the same number of articles,  just in more digestible form for our busy readers.  

To receive our articles and notices, you have some options.  If you’re already a Vibration subscriber, you can continue to receive notices through the Yahoo list.  If you’d prefer to receive the whole post in your email box, subscribe to Feedburner in the box on the right. Or, sign up for an RSS feed.  We’ll be adding a page with step by step instructions.  

If you think you’d like to be a guest blogger and share what you know about these wonderful healing tools, see the writers’ guidelines page on the right.  And no, just to make it clear from the outset, we have nothing whatsoever to do with Essence Magazine, so don’t  send us submissions meant for them.

If you’re a long-time subscriber, we’d love to have you join us on this journey.  If we haven’t met before, welcome to the journey!

Deborah and Donna
