Last weekend I did some pruning in the back yard.

There was a pretty vine growing up the side of the fir tree by my garage.

I pulled it off – with my bare hands.

Big mistake. It was poison ivy.

A Native American saying Marianne Williamson once quoted came to mind: The antidote to any poisonous plant found in nature is never more than three feet away.

While I didn’t find a natural remedy growing anywhere in my yard for the poison ivy – I did have an epiphany of sorts about the Native American saying.

When we’re facing adversity in our lives all we really want is for it to end. Period.

Wouldn’t it be nice if the antidote to any problem were a mere three feet away? Unfortunately life doesn’t always work that way, and most of us know by now that adversity while unpleasant, has a place in our lives. We’re meant to learn how to master the particular challenge we’re facing and to grow from the experience.

If there were a magic pill for us each time we faced difficulties, or felt down we’d never progress in our development and mastery of this life.

But who’s to say we can’t get a little help every now and then? When we’re dealing with tough times, or need the “know how” to accomplish a goal, or need a shot of courage, or motivation and inspiration, wouldn’t it be nice to know we can turn to someone who’s been through what we’re experiencing for advice and strategies? And, wouldn’t it be nice if all it took was one click on Net to get there?

The Daily Brainstorm – A Blogazine to Rock Your Mind launching the week of July 12 – is such a place. It’s blogazine….meaning it’s a site that pools the best content from the best blogs on the Internet and puts it all on one easy to navigate site. It’s a place to find answers, tips and tools from some of the most innovative minds in the blogosphere.

Some top name talent is contributing to this new online magazine such as:

Leo Babauta of Zen Habits; Darren Rowse of ProBlogger; Gretchen Rubin of Happiness Project; Danielle LaPorte of White Hot Truth; Mary Jaksch of Goodlife Zen and Write to Done; Charlie Gilkey of Productive Flourishing; and Erin Pavlina of Spiritual Wisdom.

And that’s not all – there are 80 plus blogs contributing to Rock Your Mind at The Daily Brainstorm in sections such as Spirituality, Self Development, Humor, Money, Health, Lifestyle, Blogosphere, Writing and News&Views. Some of the up and comers you might recognize are: Barrie Davenport of Live Bold & Bloom, Katie Tallo of Momentum Gathering; Lisa of Privilege; Manal Ghosain of One With Now; Jean Sarauer of Virgin Blogger Notes; Farnoosh of Prolific Living; Arvind Devalia of Make It Happen; and yes, Powered by Intuition is there too. And, so many more fabulously talented bloggers you simply have to go and see for yourself. Of course, I’ve got a major soft spot for The Daily Brainstorm since I’m now the director of marketing for the publication. But still, do yourself a favor and scratch that itch – visit The Daily Brainstorm – A Blogazine to Rock Your Mind! I know the antidote you’re looking for will be there. (As for me and my poison ivy – I’m outta luck. I’m scratching ’til I hit bone!)
