LA’AU LAPA’AU | Celery Seed – The Herb Society of America’s Herb of the Month

Celery seed comes from a variety of celery that is different from the celery (Apium graveolens) we see in grocery stores. The seed comes from an ancestor of celery called smallage or wild celery. The smallage variety is native to the Mediterranean area and the Middle East and is grown in India, China, and France specifically for the harvesting of its seeds.  […]

September Brings Clarity To Your Situation

Mental, spiritual, physical and emotional clarity all balance our being to become more aligned to our path and helps us go forward with our intentions and soul’s calling. This is the path of observing, without becoming. Of course, initially, it is natural to shift our balance and react on any of the above levels and situations and events in the human experience. This is a part of the human experience and this lifetime. How we move on from the initial reaction is what we can consciously choose, from the perspective of the observer and the seer.

To study thyself, is to study life and all of the Universe. When you realize that all that is happening around you is part of a grander plan, you can surrender to your path, not becoming one with changes and shifts that occur at all times. It is like observing the whole ocean and being aware that every ripple and wave is a part of a greater whole that makes up All. Thereby we move from duality to non-duality.

Syncretism | Ancient Sumerian Tablets | Documentary Boxset | The ‘watchers’ world’s biggest secret decoded

From ancient texts, myths and legends, the true identity of the “Shining Ones” is considered to be one of the greatest secrets ever kept from humanity. Examinations of sacred ancient texts reveal this amazing race of beings created mankind and walked among humans and were of great importance to ancient civilizations world-wide. The Shining Ones have appeared in many myths and cultures by different names and descriptions always as gods or Creation forces of light.

The Shining Ones who have remained powerful groups which experienced the enlightenment of these beings. In Sumeria, is the Egregore or Watchers and many other epithets which were given to them. From all of these then we can conclude that they also were the Shining Ones.

On Friendships

True connections through the bond of friendship, are such an epic treasure. That true blue person who ‘just gets you’. One look, and they know exactly what you’re feeling. The person who you can have comfortable silences with, and talk your face off about anything and everything with as well. The person who still loves you when you least deserve it, because they know that’s when you need it the most. The one who always has your back, stabs you in the front, and never leaves your side in the best or worst of times. The person who does not judge you, but cheers you on, lifts you up, and allows you to be as you are. They are the person you know, that no matter what, you will always have in this world. There’s really not adequate enough words to express this kind of magic, it just is. And if you have a person like this, I don’t even have to tell you to appreciate them, I know you do.

Energy Update | August 22, 2020

Time to go earthy again! I’m happy to move into Virgo season because it is all about nourishment and making everyday special. Virgo holds the wisdom and has Priestess and healer energy. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, but while Gemini is all about communication and sociability, Virgo is about the internal processes and the mind.

Virgo is also our health, so if we have neglected it and created unhealthy routines, now it is the time to get back on track again. We have to be mindful of being critical of ourselves and others and to not judge. Virgo’s eye for detail can be perfect to have in some cases, but not when it comes to nitpicking oneself and others.

Embrace the earth energy now, especially as we are changing seasons. Get out in nature and connect with Mother Earth.

How many Virgos do we have here?

Spirituality | The Prophecy of the White Buffalo Calf Woman Materializing

White Buffalo Calf Woman speaks. My sisters unbuckle the humanness that keeps you so strapped in to all the roles that you once played.  All has changed and the cosmic merry-go-round stops in front of your door. You are a conjunction of all of your fears, your dreams, and your desires.  You are conjunction of time and space, heaven and hell.  You are the destiny of this beauteous planet that you stand upon.  You hold the vibratory key that escorts many into a place of safety.  You lift them by praying for them, by holding the warm fire light for them.  You lift them in your song, in your laughter and your invocations.

 

We ask you to embrace all shortcomings that you try so hard to cover and prevent others from seeing.  We ask you to embrace and love all the unwise things you have done and all the imperfections that you wear as scars.  For all creation is beautiful as are you.  The intertwining of the leaves, of the grass, of the wind and you is the most beautiful of all dances.  Your worth is priceless and in that precious vibration you need to embrace all the dreams that still live within your heart.  Do not cut yourself short.  Do not put on the brakes when you yearn so deeply to fulfill desires that are  but a tiny seed of creation waiting to be birthed.

 

The time to address all your fears is now.  The time to move forward wearing a badge of courage is now.  The time to dream big is now.  Do not be afraid of the predictions of the physical world, for the vibratory level that you exist is beyond the reach of what makes others so fearful.  You must believe without a shadow of doubt.  Look at your shadow and embrace every part. Every valley of woe, of death and demise you have walked through, now comes to a point of reflection and in this reflection there will be a collage of healing mirrors.

 

Do not be embarrassed by what has happened to you in the past no matter what form that took.  Every role you have played serves you well now. Every badge of courage, every fear, every shame is wrapped up in a cocoon of holy light.  Honor it and understand it.  The physical body must move forward thru these shifts and fears.  It will scream, it will kick and you will feel like you are dying.  This is all a game to keep you less than.  Walk through the fears, the angers, the disease and the lies, come to a point of complete clarity, within this clarity lives a great power. I am White Buffalo Calf Woman.

La’au Lapa’au | HSA Webinar: A Recipe for Success

The Herb Society of America Blog

By Bevin Cohen

I’ve long been amazed by the generous bounty offered to us by Mother Nature. Even as a young boy picking wintergreen berries in the woods, I just couldn’t believe that these tasty treats were available for me to enjoy, in quantities greater than I could ever consume, and the only cost was an afternoon in the shady forest, harvesting the luscious fruits as I listened to the melodious whistling of the birds and the occasional scurried sounds of a startled chipmunk or squirrel. 

As an adult, my appreciation for Nature’s endless gifts has only deepened, and I find IMG_1408myself preaching her message of abundance to anyone willing to listen. Through my work as an author, herbalist, and educator, I’ve been placed in a unique position to share my knowledge, experiences, and passion with audiences the world over, and the core of my message has always remained the…

Spirituality | About Self-Love, with Matt Kahn

Self-love is the ability to be good to yourself, no matter who is or isn’t good to you. As your self-worth elevates by treating your heart to the friendship, support, honor, and validation you deserve, you become less resonant with those who say one thing and do another, make promises only to break them on a regular basis, or take their unprocessed pain out on you. When self-love is active, you are able to honor anyone’s potential, while not placing yourself in toxic partnerships from a standpoint of “what if”.

In self-love, you are able to have a point of view, establish healthy boundaries, and utilize the power of your voice — all from the graceful power of an open heart.

In self-love, you don’t need the agreement of others to set yourself free or anyone’s permission to be as you wish.

Instead, you just need time and space to align with your true essence– cheering, cherishing, and accepting your way into an unwavering depth of clarity, confidence, and inspired action that only your love can activate in you. In time, other members of your soul tribe will appear and what often calls them forward into your reality is how consistently you are willing to emotionally support yourself.

This is why it is essential to love yourself more, not less. Not just as a modality in response to emotional triggers, but as an embodied living practice that becomes as essential to your soul as your breath is for the body. And, when knowing how each “I love you” simultaneously sends blessings of light to every heart on a quantum level, you come to realize the most direct way to heal yourself and transform the planet occurs within the same heart-centered space.

La’au Lapa’au | Nutritional Impact on Immunity and COVID – 19 | DonnieYance.com

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Although statistics show that people over the age of 65 have an increased risk of contracting COVID-19 and dying from complications due to underlying conditions, it appears that it has more to do with nutritional status than age alone. It’s true that the older we get, the more nutritional deficiencies we may have, primarily because of poor dietary choices throughout life.

Unfortunately, nutrition is often overlooked in favor of pharmaceuticals and other medical interventions. But diet plays a critical role in fortifying the immune system and in helping the body fight off and overcome infections such as COVID-19.

The Foundation of a Healthy Immune System

Often missing in public health discussions around immunity and infection are nutritional strategies to encourage the optimal function of the immune system. In spite of the long history and tradition of botanical medicine—supported by a large body of scientific data—herbs are rarely mentioned as useful…

Paradigm Shift | DEVELOPING A KEY TO THE WHOLE PICTURE

Presented to Humanity by the Sensei of the Soulfriends, January 23, 2017

The Philippine Islands | Not all of us shall reach Satori this lifetime, but all of us would like to have, right now, a picture of the whole pattern, from beginning to end. To guide us in navigating the treacherous vicissitudes of life. To acquire a worldview or philosophy. To have a spiritual framework that can enable us to make better decisions in Life. Or simply, because we want to know the whole Truth. Ok, I am obliging you.

Here is a key to the systems framework of the Whole Picture. It is meant to be a guide to the whole synthesis of Wisdom. I am affixing actual disciplines themselves as references (Dance of the Disciplines). Your assignment is to study and research the details so that you can fill in the gaps in your knowledge frameworks. Apply this systems paradigm in your life. Since this is Truth, may it give you Wisdom, and Compassion, and Altruism, and Peace.

Let us begin.

Let us begin to capture and radiate Wisdom, in verses of clarity and comprehension.

 

IN THE BEGINNING (THE REAL BEGINNING)

The Oneness has existed for all time. The Oneness shall exist for all time. The Oneness was, is and shall be. It is omnipresent, infinitely powerful, absolutely without weaknesses of any kind. It is immortal, and enjoys immortal bliss (Book of the Oneness, Nonlinear Mysticism Teachings, Summit of the Mountain Teachings). The Oneness Has existed for all time. But, from moment to moment (not sequential time), it may produce Fractals from its Efflorescence (Nonlinear Mysticism Teachings, Book of the Oneness, Quantum Physics, Quantum Cosmology).

These Fractal Systems will exist along three general Cosmic Curriculum States (Nonlinear Mysticism, Summit of the Mountain Teachings, Fractal Physics). These are the following: Nonlinear Cosmic Curriculum, Sequential Cosmic Curriculum, and Planetary (or Matrix) Cosmic Curriculum. Elaborations on the significance of these systems abound in the Metaphysics of the Soulfriends (ANAM CARA facebook posts).

These Fractal Systems are free to explore the Cosmos in all its multipotential dimensions, and planes. The Cosmos, being a reflection of Perfection, may cause these Fractal Systems to reflect Holography to a very high degree (Quantum Physics, Sacred Mathematics, Sacred Geometry, Fractal Physics, Mandala Art). All Souls emanating from the Oneness (Nonlinear Mysticism, Quantum Physics, General Mysticism) are also free to explore the manifold dimensions of the Cosmos which is patterned in this current flavor into the system of ten plus one densities (10 plus 1 densities). This realization is prevalent in the thought of the greatest Mystics (Mysticism, Nonlinear Mysticism, Plotinus Thought, Taoism) but is currently being approached by the disciplines of Science, especially those of the highest accuracy and rigor (Quantum Physics, Quantum Cosmology, Superstring Theory, Fractal Mathematics).

This concept is obviously popularized as the “Sacred Marriage” of Mysticism and Science. But in the hearts, and souls and minds of the greatest Mystics (Plotinus Thought, Neoplatonism, Nonlinear Mysticism, Taoism) and their descendants and apprentices (Platonic Philosophy, Taosim, Jainism, Sacred Geometry), science and mysticism are One. They are reflections of the Oneness. Ultimate Reality is one. There is no difference between them. This realization is also the highest refutation of the occult and exobiological systems, which may mistakenly postulate variant perspectives of Ultimate Reality.

However, something strange has occurred in this sector of this Universe (Birth of Evil, Nonlinear Mysticism, Gnosticism). An Inceptor has gone astray (Gnosticism, Summit of the Mountain Teachings). And this Inceptor has created a perverse system of thought (Dark Polarity), revolving around itself which is about to subsume (World History, Exobiology, Evolutionary Biology, Archetypal Psychology) all the paradigms of this Reality into its own twisted perspective. In many ways, this Inceptor has gone mad, to use a popular term (Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy, Guidance and Counseling, Analytical Psychology, Psychiatry). Many beings from various Orders of Being (Nonlinea Mysticism, Summit of the Mountain Teachings) have tried to heal this Inceptor that has gone astray. The healing process is continuing to this day.

Meanwhile, some information energy essences have tried to be proactive and have recruited a being of a special kind. They have requested this being to help heal the Dark Inceptor. In ancient times, this new being that has entered the picture has been called by various names, Sophia, the Goddess Sophia, the Christ energy, the Logos, or even the Shekinah (Cosmology, Mythology, World History, Gnosticism, Neoplatonism, Nonlinear Mysticism). These synonymous terms all refer to a being, or rather, a group of beings from a higher dimension (correction, a higher density) who has been requested to enter this particular Reality pattern and try to heal the Dark Inceptor. The most accurate term would be the Sophia Collective, for it refers to a group of beings, and not a single entity.

On the Planet Earth at the present time, the Sophia Collective is composed of genuine Seekers, all of them displaying and radiating the Nonlinear Curriculum pattern. The Dark Inceptor has guided the development of instruments for the execution of its dark purpose (Evolutionary Biology, Exobiology, Ancient Astronaut Theories). It has manipulated the sequence, timing, flavor and direction of events in this fragment of the Universe (Galactic History, Evolutionary Biology, Archetypal Psychology, Nonlinear Mysticism) for its own dark ends and dark intentions (Oblivion Poem). It has coerced a species (Birth of Evil, unpublished) to further its agenda. It has manipulated this species for countless eons of time (Mythology). Warnings from both Epic Fantasy, Science Fiction and World Mythology abound about this fateful partnership of Dark Inceptor and Chosen Species. This species has become its absolute servant (Evolutionary Biology, Evolutionary Psychology). Now, the whole Milky Way Galaxy is about to be converted into Hell! A living hell!

In this solar system, the minions of the Dark Inceptor arrived thousands of years in the past (Exobiology Research, Nonlinear Mysticism, True World History). It has directed and influenced the birth and death of planets and similar systems (Sumerian History, African Cosmology, Exobiology). It has invaded this solar system and claims it as home (Mysteries of the Illuminati, Secrets Archives of the Vatican, Secret Archives of the Jesuits). This planet and all its systems are products of its manipulation, whether political, religious, financial, military, historical, spiritual, occult, criminal, and most other systems (Wikileaks). Even artistic worlds, like the Hollywood, do not escape its manipulation. It has directed the sequence and tempo and direction and outcome of most of the events in this Planet we call the Earth (True World History, Frontier Research of Exobiologists). No being in this Planet has not been influenced, directly or indirectly, by its tentacles of evil. From the poorest farmer in Africa to the weirdest nerd in Asia. From the most wayward harlot of Europe to the most fanatical member of an occult system in the Far East. All have tasted from this evil predator, which many thinkers consider the “greatest warrior.”

This theme has been repeatedly part of the warning of various enlightened systems of thought (Gnosticism, Tolkien Literature, Iliad and Odyssey, Epic Fantasy and Science Fiction, the Malazan Series, Archetypal Psychology, World History, World Literature). Awesome in its breadth and depth is the manipulation and deception created by the Dark Inceptor and its evil minions. And the minions are also in the thousands, if not the thousands of thousands (political, religious, military, financial, occult, criminal, spiritual, spiritualist, economic systems and the like). It is the Hydra of legend (Mythology, Archetypal Psychology, Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy, World History, World Literature). This is the Truth. This is a picture of the Whole Pattern, from a Systems Perspective.

We would like to thank the Oneness, and all our Higher Selves for making me into a vessel to receive, transcribe and share this information to everyone. And that is what it is all about.

THIS IS WHO WE ARE.

THIS IS ALSO THE STORY OF OUR ENEMY.

Within these insights may lie the story of our salvation, rebirth, awakening and Ascension.

Warmest regards,

Sensei of the Soulfriends

Mo’olelo | Ethics, morality, cultural values in Hawaii

Ethics, morality, cultural values: In all human societies, they are the rules of behavior established by religious beliefs.

For Native Hawaiians who have adopted the religion of another society, then, there is a question of whether their traditional values also have been replaced.

For most people living in Hawaii today, rock ahu (altars) and restored heiau are interesting artifacts of a time in the past, reflecting cultural values that are no longer valid.

But Hawaiians rediscovering their cultural roots also are rediscovering and validating their ancestral cultural values, which inevitably brings them into conflict with the dominant society.  […]

Mo’olelo | Voyaging Chiefs of Kāne‘ohe Bay, with Dennis Kawaharada

Kāne‘ohe Bay is surrounded by some of the most well-watered lands in Hawai’i and some of the most beautiful mountains in the world: the Ko’olau Range­peaks, two to three thousand feet high, joined by walls of sheer green cliffs. Ka Moa’e (the ENE trade winds) sweeps warm moist air into the mountains and clouds form along the summit. Rainwater has cut steep gullies into the cliffs giving them their distinctive wrinkled appearance. When it rains, dozens of thin silvery waterfalls run down the vertical gullies; half obscured by rain and mist, the waterfalls seem to pour directly from the clouds. […]

Mindfulness | Being The Change

“True life is lived when tiny changes occur.” — Leo Tolstoy

Research shows that most people spend up to 50 percent of their time in their heads – a tendency that does nothing to increase our happiness and in fact has been proved to be detrimental to it. Instead of being habitually consumed by thoughts of the past or of trying to control the future, mindfulness is a way of engaging with the present moment. It’s a mode of being that helps increase clarity and peace of mind.

It is often in the more repetitive, day-to-day activities that we find ourselves switching into auto-pilot. So why not embrace these moments and see them as an opportunity to be more mindful? Do not to worry about trying to clear the mind of any thoughts or feelings. Instead, try and see yourself taking a back seat; witnessing the thoughts and emotions as they come and go. If you find yourself getting distracted, simply bring your attention back to the physical senses and focus your attention back on the activity itself.

  1. Being Mindful in the Shower

Unmindful: Vague awareness of the sensation of water as you step into the shower. A daily battle with the temperature control trying to work out why the temperature never quite hits the spot. Within seconds your mind wanders back to that episode of American Idol last night. Was Simon Cowell wearing a wig? Is his hair naturally that glossy? I wonder where he gets those high-waisted trousers from…?

Mindful: You become aware of how good the warm water feels as it washes over your skin. Being mindful of the smell of the shower gel, and the sensation your hands passing over your skin; being mindful to set the temperature before you step in the shower; mindful of thoughts cropping up; mindful of how much water you’re using; and mindful of the noise of the water coming to a halt.

2. Being Mindful whilst Brushing your Teeth

Unmindful: Brushing your teeth furiously, whilst noticing your reflection and bemoaning the appearance of that spot that seems to have cropped up from nowhere. Running around the house with the toothbrush hanging out of your mouth, trying to prepare breakfast, pack today’s lunch whilst hunting out those ever elusive car keys.

Mindful: Becoming mindful of the taste and texture of the toothpaste; mindful of the sensation of your feet on the bathroom floor; mindful of the way that your arm moves to direct the brush across your teeth; mindful of each and every tooth.

3. Being Mindful on your Commute

Unmindful: You’re squashed into the train or bus in a way that you didn’t think was humanly possible. The resentment builds as you move through the journey and people launch themselves into the space as though the world is coming to an end and this is the only route to safety. You find yourself holding your breath because you can’t bear the lethal cocktail of body odour and cheap perfume, wishing that you could magically transport yourself to that swim-up bar in the Caribbean you’re gazing at in the newspaper..“Tropicana drinks are free…”

Mindful: Being mindful of the people around you and recognising that they too might be feeling the same discomfort; mindful of the environment as a whole and your resistance to it; mindful of trying to fast forward to dreamt up situations, of escaping the present moment; mindful of the journey and how it feels – is the ride bumpy or is it comfortable and smooth?

4. Being Mindful while Washing Up

Unmindful: You approach the sink with a heavy heart and set about frantically washing the dishes, trying to get the whole thing over with in as little time as possible. You select the pieces of cutlery you know will cause the least amount of bother (the sieve and that greasy pan come last, obviously!) You find yourself day-dreaming out of the window half aware of that sharp knife lurking at the bottom of the sink. You catch sight of your cat purring smugly from the comfort of the sofa. Wouldn’t it be great to be the cat…

Mindful: Becoming aware of the sensations as soon as your hands hit the warm and soapy water; mindful of how you clean the dishes, taking your time to make sure each one of them is thoroughly cleaned; mindful of what’s going on around you without getting wrapped up in the storylines; mindful of the satisfaction of a job well done.

5. Being Mindful in the Queue

Unmindful: You stand twitching, full of impatience in the queue. You look at your phone and scan aimlessly through old emails and texts, searching for something, anything that might distract you from the boredom of waiting. You sigh loudly when you notice someone fumbling with their purse at the cashier desk. Can’t these people be more prepared? You feel around your bag getting everything out and ready, and realise that you’ve left your credit card on your desk after paying for that concert ticket…

Mindful: You set off mindful and quietly prepared for what you’ll need; mindful of how your mood changes when you first catch a glimpse of the queue for the bank; mindful of how you stand, your breath and where any tensions are as you scan through your body; mindful of the tendency to distract yourself from the present moment; and mindful of how you interact with the people around you.

Be The Change …
Experiment with bringing the art of mindfulness into ordinary activities this week.
