karimic-tools-144 - 3/12 ~ Mercury (communication & expression) ~square~ Saturn (limits & reality): This energy is better for deep thinking & personal processing rather than negotiating with others as it is more of a solitary energy and communications with others may be a little more challenging than usual...

 - 3/17 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility): With this energy, it is best to understand that you may have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS...

 - 3/18 ~ Mercury (ideas, thoughts & concepts) ~conjunct~ Venus (values, priorities & resources): This energy encourages you to see the Divine Order or the unifying theme running through the events of your life ~ good, bad & indifferent as well as past, present & future. This is an initiation of new values around communication, self-expression and the value of your ideas...

 - Late last summer, Texas teacher Brandy Young made internet waves when she sent a note about homework to the parents of her students.

Instead of the normal spend-30-minutes-a-day-on-homework command that parents normally hear, Mrs. Young’s note informed them that she would not be giving homework at all. Instead, she asked families to spend more time reading, eating dinner, and playing outside, all factors which research has found to contribute to greater student success.

But Mrs. Young was not the only educator to get on the no homework bandwagon. An entire elementary school in Vermont did the same. And according to The Washington Post, that decision seems to be turning out just fine for the students, parents, and teachers of Orchard School:

 - 1. They have a strong sense of identity - They know who they are, which means they also know – specifically – what they do and do not want in a partner, what works and what doesn’t. While this is fantastic in terms of being able to choose wisely, it ultimately diminishes their pool of prospects pretty significantly.

- 2. Left unchecked, their hyper-intuitiveness can wreck relationships - Often prone to overthinking because of how deeply sensitive they are, their capacity to worry and make assumptions can break relationships that don’t have a perfectly strong foundation.

 - 3. Many are in the throes of twin flame relationships - They’re attached or are with people who are not their “forever” people, rather, intense connections they’re meant to learn, and rapidly expand, from.

 - Animal rights groups have slammed Norway for slaughtering pregnant whales, calling it “even more unacceptable” as they carry the next generation of the mammals. The criticism follows a new documentary featuring the murder of female whales carrying a fetus.

The documentary film dubbed ‘The Battle of Agony’, about the killing of pregnant whales, was released on NRK, a public television network, earlier in March.

“The majority of common minke whales caught in Norway have a fetus in their bellies,” the film said.

- Can a planet be alive? Lynn Margulis, a giant of late 20th-century biology, who had an incandescent intellect that veered toward the unorthodox, thought so. She and chemist James Lovelock together theorized that life must be a planet-altering phenomenon and the distinction between the “living” and “nonliving” parts of Earth is not as clear-cut as we think. Many members of the scientific community derided their theory, called the Gaia hypothesis, as pseudoscience, and questioned their scientific integrity. But now Margulis and Lovelock may have their revenge. Recent scientific discoveries are giving us reason to take this hypothesis more seriously. At its core is an insight about the relationship between planets and life that has changed our understanding of both, and is shaping how we look for life on other worlds.

Studying Earth’s global biosphere together, Margulis and Lovelock realized that it has some of the properties of a life form. It seems to display “homeostasis,” or self‐regulation. Many of Earth’s life‐sustaining qualities exhibit remarkable stability. The temperature range of the climate; the oxygen content of the atmosphere; the pH, chemistry, and salinity of the ocean—all these are biologically mediated. All have, for hundreds of millions of years, stayed within a range where life can thrive. Lovelock and Margulis surmised that the totality of life is interacting with its environments in ways that regulate these global qualities. They recognized that Earth is, in a sense, a living organism. Lovelock named this creature Gaia.

Life and Earth have been co-evolving in a continuing dance.

 - Salvestrols are the wonder nutrients found in fruit and vegetables that hold potential as yet another safe, effective and natural cancer cure.

In 1995, Professor Dan Burke accidentally discovered that cancer cells contained an enzyme that was not found in normal healthy cells. Later on in 1997, after conducting extensive research with Professor Gerry Potter, he discovered that a certain type of polyphenyl (plant nutrient) found in fruit and vegetables was able to bind with this cancer enzyme – and subsequently destroy the cancer cell. The researchers decided to call this group of phytonutrients salvestrols (salve means to save and strol is derived from resveratrol, the first salvestrol).

Being the medicinal part of the plant, theses salvestrols taste bitter, which unfortunately means they have been bred out of existence in some strains of fruit (e.g. apples) by large-scale agro-corporate farming, which constantly tries to make everything sweeter to sell more product. Salvestrols belong to another subcategory called phytoalexins, which are substances produced by plants to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses, fungi, insects and ultraviolet light.

Image result for organic produce - According to a new report by the United Nations (UN), continuing to adhere to the global industrial farming model of agriculture is guaranteed to bring about catastrophic consequences, and that organic farming is in fact the best way to feed an ever-growing world.

It is a myth. Using more pesticides is nothing to do with getting rid of hunger. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), we are able to feed 9 billion people today. Production is definitely increasing, but the problem is poverty, inequality and distribution. ~ Hilal Elver, UN special rapporteur on the right to food.

Pollution and food experts at the UN are highly critical of global corporations which manufacture pesticides while actively seeking to change the model of farming in favor of dependency on corporations for the success of crops.

 - “The world today hangs by a thin thread, and that thread is the psyche of man.” - C. G. Jung

How does anyone possibly express in words the state of collective madness that humanity has fallen into at this time in our history? As if in a hypnotic trance, our species is enacting a mass ritual suicide on a global scale, rushing as fast as we can towards our own self-destruction. We are destroying the biospheric life-support systems of the planet in so many different ways that it is as if we are determined to make this suicide attempt work—using a variety of methods as a perverse insurance policy, in case a couple of them don’t do the job. What modern-day humanity is confronted with, to quote the author and Trappist monk Thomas Merton, is “a crisis of sanity first of all.”

In trying to find a way to write about this state of affairs, I find myself going “off-planet,” imagining what it would look like if some enlightened aliens, in their travels throughout the universe, came upon our planet. Observing from a distance, they would naturally see all the various living beings who call planet earth home as related members of one larger organism—a single eco-system—who literally depend upon each other for survival. From this vantage point, I imagine, they would be utterly baffled at why human beings—the seemingly most intelligent species ever to appear on planet earth—are acting out their destructive impulses practically without restraint in every corner of the globe. Contemplating the state of humanity, I imagine these awakened beings wondering, “What in the world has gotten into them?”

 - America has two long-standing symbols for freedom: the bald eagle and the wild mustang. You've seen these majestic wild horses in TV or magazine ads, running unbridled across the open range, dust in their wake. They evoke the boundless West and our nation's pioneer spirit.

What you don't see is the helicopters chasing them. Roundups sound romantic, but in the case of mustangs, the process is cruel and brutal. Despite federal protection, the horses are treated like pests on their native range because, it turns out, the West isn't that open after all.

The roundups start with the helicopters, which swoop down and terrorize the animals, chasing them to awaiting corrals. The pursuit is dangerous and terrifying. Many horses are injured and some die.

 - How is it possible that the abrupt climate shift unfolding on our planet is not creating nearly as much heat in wealthy nations as compared to poor countries? This, now statistically proven scenario, is yet another glaring red flag to confirm the ongoing global climate engineering insanity being carried out by militarized / industrialized nations. Highly toxic and environmentally devastating global geoengineering programs are a primary tool and weapon of the more powerful nations. The worldwide weather modification assault has been used to confuse and divide populations in regard to the true state of the climate and the true extent of the threat that we collectively face. The ongoing effort by the climate engineers to mask the full degree of climate damage from first world populations has been aggressive and consistent.

Recent studies have now proven that a completely unnatural global temperature scenario is taking place which would not be possible without the existence of ongoing climate intervention programs. Temperatures in high income nations are rising at a far slower rate than low income nations.

 - As the bee population continues to decline, many people are becoming increasingly concerned. Some in Cedar Rapids Iowa, however, are now taking action to do what they can to prevent bees from disappearing completely.

The plan coming out of Cedar Rapids seeks to seed 188 acres with wild flowers and native prairie grasses. Eventually the city wants to seed 1,000 acres of bee habitats.

The 1,000 Acre Pollinator Initiative is a result of a partnership between the Monarch Research Project and Cedar Rapids.

 - A few years ago, a shaman in Honduras taught me an extremely useful technique that gives you clarity on your path and dissolves stress and anxiety. It’s had a pretty profound effect on my life and today I’d like to share it with you.

Like much of the healing wisdom that comes from native cultures, this teaching began with an observation about nature.

As we sat together, the curandero asked me how I felt about deer. Yes, our furry four-legged friends that frolic in the forest.
