Archeology | 400,000 Year Old Siberian Cave Discovery That Changes Everything We Know About Human Origins

A series of stunning archaeology discoveries on man’s origins have been made in a Siberian cave. The significance of the cave is immense, and the experts are convinced it has more secrets to give up on human origins. Most importantly, the cave is the only known instance to date of the Denisovans, a newly identified species of giant human being. They are a mysterious relative of the Neanderthals who are thought to have roamed the plains of Siberia and east Asia long before modern humans arrived on the continent.

 

They are now thought to have inhabited Eastern Eurasia from around 400,000 years down to around 40,000 years ago (and arguably much later still). During their final years the Denisovans achieved an advanced level of human behavior, including the creation of sophisticated symbolic or non-functional objects including an arm bracelet in bottle-green chloritolite with a bored hole that can only have been made using a high-speed drill; a bone needle with an eye for thread, suggesting the manufacture of tailored clothing.

Archeology | An Austrian Pyramid

In the Summer of 2019 Mick visited a mysterious pyramid found in the Austrian Forest.

It is situated in a park with 5 sites known for their subtle energies, popular for healing and dowsing, with the age hotly disputed.

Also take a look at the “Natural Formations” found in the Czech Republic.

Wellness | Feeling loved in everyday life linked with improved well-being

Poets and songwriters may tend to focus their artistry on passion and romance, but it may be those unsung, brief feelings of love throughout the day that are connected with psychological well-being, according to a team of researchers led by two Penn State Institute for Computational and Data Sciences (ICDS) researchers. They added that the findings could one day lead to interventions aimed at boosting well-being.  […]

La’au Lapa’au | Herbs and Spices of Thanksgiving!

Without the herbs and spices, we associate with our traditional Thanksgiving spread the food would be rather dull.  What would the turkey be without incorporating sage (Salvia officinalis) in our stuffing?  Cinnamon is a must-have for apple pie.  For pumpkin pie, we need cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. And I’d rather not drink my eggnog without a dash of freshly ground nutmeg. Many of us use the familiar Old Bay Poultry seasoning and often, along with sage, this herb and spice mix also includes nutmeg, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, and black pepper.  […]

Can You Feel This Full Moon Energy?

Can you feel the Full Moon Energy?

The energies have been strong the past couple of days and especially with the 11:11 portal yesterday. I have had mystical and emotional dreams and at the same time felt deep grounding.

The Full Moon today helps us complete an emotional cycle related to Taurus which is the first earth sign. It is ruled by Venus and is our physical and tangible life which is grounded into earth and our senses. It is about physical pleasures and assets.

The opposite of Taurus is Scorpio which leaves the physical world and dives deep into the inner realms of our emotions, deep and mystical dimensions and karmic wounds. Sun is in Scorpio and reminding us to merge and unite our physical experience with the deeper and spiritual experience.

Mercury is retrograde and traveling very close to the Sun right now, which also highlights our thought patterns. The asteroid Vesta is conjunct the Moon and brings in energy of devotion and clarity. We are asked to also create a stable and patient relationship with our body and with Mother Earth.

These are the areas which affects your Sun/Ascendant at this Lunation:

Aries: physical and material matters as well as the body
Taurus: the Self
Gemini: Spiritual and hidden areas
Cancer: Friends, groups and organisations
Leo: Career and status
Virgo: Higher learning and long distance travel
Libra: Hidden areas and secrets/ loans and the psyche
Scorpio: relationships and partnerships
Sagittarius: Health and daily work/routine
Capricorn: Children and love
Aquarius: home and family
Pisces: communications

Happy Full Moon!
