1. Your new book is Joyful Living: 101 Ways to Transform Your Spirit & Revitalize Your Life. What inspired you to write the book??

Shakta KhalsaI wrote Joyful Living because I believe the joy is the highest vibration in the known universe. I have been a medical intuitive for fifteen years, and in my practice I have seen that joy is the most powerful energy that we can access for healing. So, I consider it part of my life's work to share that information with the world.

2. Is it really possible for us to be happy—all the time?

That's a tall order for anyone. We will most likely experience life's ups and downs, but how we weather that storm is where the power of joy comes in. If we have consistently established a practice of joyful living, mindfulness, and self-care, then we are better prepared to deal with the complexities of modern life. Although we may not be ecstatically happy all of the time, we will be able to draw on our own inner wellspring of joy and tranquility and feel that at any moment. And all it really takes is practice. In the book I take you through 101 exercises or activities that can bring you joy on a daily basis. So by making happiness a habit, we can bring it into our lives on a consistent basis. And it's pretty easy; it really only takes a little bit of effort.

3. Joyful Living contains 101 ways to infuse your life with joy. Does the book need to be read in order?

The book is meant to be read in any order! You can open to any page and read the short inspirational chapter and do the activity and bring joy into your life immediately. If you want to read in order, you certainly can integrate progression to really make a commitment to joy on a regular basis. But, it's meant to be a fun book and there are no rules! Only joy!

3 Theories to Explain the Loch Ness Monster
by Nick Redfern

When it comes to the matter of mysterious creatures and unknown animals, one of the most famous of all is Nessie—the monstrous denizen of Scotland's huge Loch Ness. For centuries stories have surfaced of a creature—or, far more likely, a colony of creatures—lurking deep in the waters of the ancient loch, and occasionally surfacing to tantalize and terrify locals and tourists. But, what are the Nessies? The theories are many. The answers, however, are few. Nick Redfern, author of the new Nessie, provides three of the more intriguing suggestions.
