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

Elementals – the Nature Spirits of Earth Monika Muranyi
The Earth is more alive than you think. In the deepest parts of the oceans, there is life. In the depths of the Earth, where volcanoes are born, there is life. Even the air we breathe has the attribute of life. The universe is just teeming with life, and some day it will be seen by scientists. 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.

Archangel Michael's Leyline and Sacred Sites in Ireland Maria O'Farrell Carr
The Saint Michael Leyline is largely intact because of the work of the Druids. This Leyline runs across Ireland for several hundred miles, intersecting with various sacred sites that have been dedicated to Saint Michael. One of the original amplification points of this ley is a 230 metre rock, called Skellig Michael, which stands in the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of Ireland. For 600 years since the seventh century AD, it was a centre of monastic life for Christian monks who lived in a monastery that still exists...

Wellness Tip
Hand Weights
Should you swing hand weights while walking? Experts disagree, but in the interests of safety, it is probably better not to use them. Gripping the weights while walking can increase blood pressure. They can also increase the strain on arm and shoulder muscles, and ligaments. If you decide to use weights anyway, swing smoothly, keep the weights under good control and limit the weights to no more than 3 pounds.

Recipe
Spinach & Cilantro Pesto
Category: Raw Foods
Description: One leafy, green vegetable that I cannot seem to get enough of is Spinach. Spinach is so versatile, from spinach salads, to spinach smoothies, to spinach soup. You name the recipe and spinach can be added to it. And talk about nutritious…remember Popeye?? The health benefits of spinach are numerous. It sits at the top of many super food lists. Spinach is loaded with calcium, folic acid, vitamin K and Iron. It is also rich in Vitamin C, fiber and caretenoids. Add its lutein and bioflavanoids and spinach becomes a nutritional powerhouse.
The combination of flavours in the following recipe are simply divine. I’ve cheated a bit and toasted the cashews, but it’s worth it for the enhanced flavour.
