A new study at the University of Sydney has found that cows tell their feelings through moos. Cows have individual vocal identifiers and change pitch to match their emotions. Cows respond to both positive and negative emotions with their own “voice.”
As we cycle through the elements of
Earth Air Fire Water and Aether …
Spirit, the place where all elements come together …
Where our connection to Divinity
Flows through our connection with Breath …
Take a breath with me and
Let’s celebrate the Elements
Today, and every day …
We welcome you
Air, that’s in our Breath;
Fire, that sparks our synapses;
Water, and all the fluids of our body;
Earth, that is our skeleton and muscle,
And Spirit, that inspires us to Create
And to be in relationship with the whole Universe:
Holy Mother in whom we live, move and have our Being,
From you all things emerge,
And unto you all things return.
Open our hearts this blessed Day.
Touch our bodies and our minds.
Walk with us through the Gates of
Power, Shadow and Starlight …
Of Fire meeting Earth;
The Wind on the Ocean
And the sweet kiss of Life.
Blessed be our Journey.
May the blessings of all the World be upon you
The inspiration of all the Elements
May they flow through you
With each and every breath …
Blessings of the Divine Mother!

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects up to 40% of reproductive-age women worldwide. PMS symptoms include irritability, depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and bloating in the days before menstruation begins. Bitter orange (Citrus × Aurantium, Rutaceae) has traditionally been used as a carminative, antiemetic, antidepressant, anxiolytic, analgesic, and sedative and to treat headache, inflammation, insomnia, and uterine prolapse. Previous clinical studies have shown aromatherapy with essential oils (EO) from bitter orange flowers can reduce stress and menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women and reduce pain and anxiety in women in labor. The purpose of this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was to evaluate the effects of bitter orange EO aromatherapy on PMS symptoms in young women.
The trial was conducted at the Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in Shiraz, Iran from March 2016 to February 2017 with female medical students from the university. Participants were included if they had moderate to severe PMS symptoms (scores…

While cannabis (Cannabis sativa, Cannabaceae) prohibition is being discarded by many nations, epidemiological studies and biological evidence continue to report links between its use and psychotic disorder (PD). A meta-analysis reported a dose-response link, with the highest risks of PD among people with heaviest cannabis use. It is unclear whether cannabis use affects the incidence of PD. It is often used by individuals to self-treat psychiatric symptoms, as is also seen with other drugs and alcohol.
The European Network of National Schizophrenia Networks Studying Gene-Environment Interactions (EU-GEI; May 1, 2010 – May 1, 2015) sought to identify genetic, clinical, and environmental factors involved in the development, severity, and outcome of psychosis. As part of the EU-GEI, the authors describe differences in cannabis use across sites, identify measures of use with the strongest impact on PD rates across sites (assuming causality), calculate the population attributable fraction (PAF) for patterns…

Oxygen Helps With Lung Cleansing
Oxygen is, by far, the most vital component humans need to live. We can go weeks without food, days without water, but only a few minutes without air. To get the most out of oxygen, it’s imperative our lungs are functioning properly. Every cell in the human body requires oxygen and, although it seems like an autonomous function, deep breathing exercises can be done to help clear out toxins that may have built up in the lungs which can help improve lung performance and clear airways. Deep breathing gets more nourishing oxygen into your body. Blood that is rich in oxygen will help you feel better and give you more energy. Deep breathing also reaches the deepest depths of your lungs and helps to expel and break up residue.
Shallow Breathing vs. Deep Breathing
Although the average human lung capacity is about 6 liters of air, we…

Lungwort, also known as lungwort leaf or Pulmonaria officinalis, is a natural plant that has been used around the world for a variety of respiratory ailments, including coughs, colds, bronchial detoxification and catarrhal problems. Lungwort is found in native damp habitats and coastal areas in Europe, Asia, North America, and Africa. Because it’s very sensitive to environmental toxins, the areas in which it is found are typically unpolluted old forests, and thus, the presence of lungwort is often a good indicator of an ecosystem’s health.
A Brief History of Lungwort
In the early 1600s, a theory known as the “Doctrine of Signatures” was widely accepted. Essentially the foundation of this practice was that plants resembling certain human physical attributes were believed to be beneficial to the part of the body they resembled. It was during this time that lungwort–which resembles the tissue inside the lungs–was discovered to be an…

DISCUSSION | A perfect example of our first lesson in innerstanding how to Live Pōnō with the Aloha Spirit.
More than ever, the WORDS you use daily to communicate … the attitude you express when speaking … matter. In particular, how you sound to others indicates most accurately how “spiritual” you actually are … and those words heard just might be in stark contrast to how you perceive yourself in your head! Now, that takes Mindfulness, Awareness and Integrity to a whole new level. It’s 2020 … no more sugar-coating truth.
This article illustrates well a serious consideration for everyone claiming to be “woke” … and is a definite check-up from the neck up!

At this school, we’ve been teaching this fact for decades because it is a known fact that it is the heart that first develops in a zygote as it morphs into an embryo in the womb … and it is from the heart that the tongue next develops, then the brain, nervous system and spine. “Scientists” simply didn’t want to clarify the public’s innerstanding … until now …

Everything you want is just an energy shift away. Shifting your mind from lack and limitations to absolute possibilities. There’s no reason why you can’t have what you want out of life. With enough faith, anything is possible for you. You must decide though. You must declare it now and never look back. Don’t try. Don’t think one day. Do it now. This is the most powerful thing you can do for yourself. We have a beautiful gift called the imagination to create from. Our mind allows us to see beyond current circumstances. We can either visualize in detail the experiences we want to have or fall trap to the experiences we already created. What’s in front of you isn’t real. It already happened. Don’t become too identified with it. You already created it. However, what you want to experience next is waiting for you to decide. Most people settle, because they forgot their real power. They settle out of fear that “this is it for me” or they assume life has nothing else to offer them. Being a victim of circumstances is giving up your creative mind power. Know what you want. Visualize it. Feel good…
