Celtic Symbolism – The Moon
The moon’s natural influence on people and animals since the dawn of life existing on earth goes without saying. The cultural influences of the moon on lifestyle, art, mythology and language are prevalent amongst most indigenous cultures of the world and all modern life today. As far as actual celebrations regarding the moon, we know little of, but there are a few fragments of information that have survived. For one thing, many herbs were only picked during specific phases or days of the moon’s cycle. Certain days were lucky while others were unlucky to pick herbs or conduct business in general. This practice survived in Celtic lands at least until the

Giving Thanks Lyndsay Blais
Our brains are selective like that. We all have a reticular activating system, or R.A.S., which is like our internal G.P.S. that brings things to our attention; things that align with a goal we are working on, or things that support what we are focusing on that we deem important to us. Our R.A.S. can tell us where to turn, who to talk to, and where to spend our time and energy, if we are paying attention to it.......

Some of them are already starting to see it, and they are talking about physics with an attitude, and intelligent design.

The Celtic Tree of Life and Symbolism Miscellaneous
It’s not readily known but Ireland as well as Scotland used to be densely covered in trees. Trees were an incredibly important aspect of nature and life to the ancient Celts. The trees being the tallest living thing around, it’s easy to envision a past where they were revered. Trees provided shelter, food, warmth and cooking capabilities through fire wood along with acting as a home to many animals. It’s thought that when a tribe cleared a piece of land for settlement, they would leave a great tree in the middle known as the “Crann Na Beatha”...

The Wisdom of a Spirituality-Based Science Gregg Braden
During the last years of the Cold War, I had a front row seat as a senior systems designer in the defense industry to one of the most frightening times in the history of the world, and the thinking that led to it. During the last years of the most potentially lethal, yet undeclared, war in human history, the superpowers of the United States and the former Soviet Union did something that seems unthinkable to any rationally minded person today. They spent the time, energy, and human resources to develop and stockpile somewhere in the neighborhood of 65,000nuclear weapons — a combined arsenal with the power to microwave the Earth, and everything on it, many times over.

Wellness Tip
A Golfing Workout
By walking and carrying your clubs, you can make golf into a decent calorie burning activity. Here's a rough example for a 190 pound man and a 135 pound woman. They carry clubs and play for 4 hours per week. The man burns an extra 170 calories per hour and would eventually weigh about 8 pounds less! Numbers for the woman are roughly 120 calories extra per hour and 5-6 pounds less.

Recipe
Turmeric Lemonade
Category: Drinks
Description: This orange-colored root is an anti-inflamatory, helps Alzheimer’s, and lowers bad cholesterol. Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders.

Turmeric is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, water retention, worms, and kidney problems. And, although it stains everything, including your teeth, temporarily, it really works to clean your teeth, whitening them, without damaging your teeth like peroxide does.

Turmeric is pretty much a super root with super powers. It’s packed full of antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, is great for brain health, lowers risk of heart disease, and has been found to lift depression. In this clinical trial, on major depressive disorder (MDD), Curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) equaled the effects of the prescription drug fluoxetine (the generic form of Prozac), without the adverse effects!
