Do you know what GMO is? Why not? It’s important.

A lot of people went out to protest against Monsanto last week.  Here are a few of them. kids and monsanto

These are autistic kids, who need to be sure they are not eating poison.  They are protesting for labeling of Genetically Modified Organisms in their food. (GMO)

In case you don’t know what GMO is (because of the mainstream media ignoring it,) GMOS means one of the four companies in the world that creates genetically modified seeds (Monsanto, Syngenta, Dupont, and a fourth one I can’t find on the Internet because it’s keeping a low profile. It might be BASF.)  Basically, they are chemical and plastics companies redefining themselves as agricultural companies.

It’s like when the cigarette companies changed their names and bought the food companies.

So now, we get to eat food provided by the managers of plastics and chemicals companies.  There are plenty of articles about this on the Internet.  The basic problem is that these foods are not labeled, so you don’t know when you go to the grocery store whether the food has been genetically modifed.  In the U.S., almost all the corn, soybeans, canola, and sugar beets have been genetically modified.  This shows up in packaged and processed food.  It’s estimated that 70 – 80 percent of processed foods contains genetically modified ingredients.

The argument is that the food is approved by the FDA and “proven safe.”  But of course, it is not proven safe.  It is only “not proven unsafe.”  Yet.  Cigarettes were not proven unsafe for a generation or two.

Thus will it be with GMOs.  Your grandchildren will shake their heads and wonder how you could have been so stupid and negligent as to not force food companies to label GMOs, so that you would have the choice not to eat them.  But by that time, will the danger to our food supply be unfixable?

Frogs and snails and snakes? Who needs ’em!

Toads are disappearing.  According to the U.S. Geological survey, frogs are declining at alarming rates.  Rates that may lead to their extinction.  So are other small amphibians that rely on fresh water.  But nobody knows why.

I guess it’s because nobody sees any relationship between the drugs (pharmaceutical drugs) that are being excreted in human urine to the point that they are detected in high levels in the rivers, and fresh river water that frogs take in through their skin.  Scientists.  Go figure.

So now we have problems with losing the bee population, losing the frogs, and losing the bats.  I suppose it’s not important.  (Tongue in cheek.)

You have to believe it to see it

I know some people think they have to see it to believe it.  But that’s backwards, you know.

What if there were a world called Fantasyland, where the following story was true?

Following your Destiny

Throughout your life, you have the opportunity to exercise your free will and make decisions about your path.  Among all the possible paths, there is only one path that will lead you to your Destiny. At the point of your Destiny, there is a Giant Magnet, which is pulling you toward it.  You feel attracted to the magnet, so you are constantly adjusting your path, trying to find the one path that will lead to your end goal.

 Each decision you make intends to bring you closer to the magnet.  However, sometimes, the path doubles back on itself, or twists in an odd manner, and you get confused.  When this happens, you may inadvertently make a wrong decision or go down a wrong path.  As magnets do, this conflict snaps a twist in the force field between you and your destiny.  The magnet gets worried that you may be going rogue, skipping off your path, or losing power.  It sends out an alarm signal.  When the alarm sounds, the path rises up to shake, push, nudge, shove, smack, or roll you back on track.   These disruptions to your path are called “accidents”, but they are not accidental.  They are Destiny interacting with you.  This continues to happen until you meet your destiny. 

 Synchronicity

We know this story is mythical.  But, what if you believed this?   What if, every time you experienced an accident, a coincidence, an odd circumstance, a chance encounter, or a strange synchronicity, you believed it to be an action of the magnet of Destiny?  If you believed it, then accidents and problems would look like opportunities to adjust your direction.  You would experience the bad things in life as if they were good and helpful things.  When you lost something, you would think you did not need it. You would think when you broke your arm on the way to a meeting, you were not meant to do that deal.  You would think when you broke a lamp, you must have had some use for an extra lampshade.    If you believed in the laws of FantasyLand, every bad thing that happened would be perceived as guidance from the universe.  You would come to expect all experience to be positive.  You would feel gratitude for the course correction, rather than frustration and dismay for the obstacle. You would feel gratitude, rather than rage. This would be a totally different way to look at difficult situations than the way you probably look at them now.  If you felt gratitude to the magnet for guiding you to your destiny, instead of frustration and despair, do you think your health would improve?

Emotional response is chemical reaction in the body, which results in hormonal imbalance and causes disease.  Do you believe that feeling positive gratitude about frustrating things would change your emotional response to any situation?  Do you see that your innermost core belief system impacts your emotional response, which changes your chemical reactions, which impacts your hormones, which results in your state of disease? 

You have to believe it to see it.  Try believing in the Giant Magnet story of Fantasyland for one month.  Did something heal?

What is success?

One day, a venture capitalist visited Peru. He happened upon a man who was making beautiful metal sculptures in his back yard. “These are a gold mine,” said the venture capitalist. “Let me build a factory to copy these. We can sell facsimiles of them on the Internet. You can be in charge of supervising the factory. We’ll work day and night for twenty years, and at the end, you’ll be fantastically wealthy.”

“What will I do when I am wealthy?” the Peruvian man asked.

“Why, then, you can do anything you want,” said the venture capitalist. “Fish. Play with your grandchildren. Make metal sculptures in your back yard. Whatever pleases you.”

The Peruvian stared, perplexed at the proposal. “I fish, play with my grandchildren, and make metal sculptures in my backyard everyday now,” he said to the odd American visitor. “I am doing what pleases me. If you don’t mind, I’ll skip the twenty years of working day and night, and be happy beginning today.”

Money, and the price to get it, may not be all it’s cracked up to be. As the Peruvian pointed out, time is what life is made of . Enjoying life occurs when we enjoy each of our daily moments. The Peruvian saw through that ruse which the venture capitalist never fathomed. Yet, the Peruvian had success, by his own measure.

Honey sold in grocery stores has the pollen removed

In preparing your healing plan and your pantry for health through food, remember that you have to use local honey, grown by a beekeeper you know.  The stuff in the grocery stores probably doesn’t have any bee pollen in it!!!!

Bees-pollens-health-benefits-200x300

Testing done for Food Safety News shows that 75% of honey sold on U.S. grocery store shelves has been ultra-filtered, so the bee pollen is removed.

The bee pollen is where the health benefit is.  Without it, you might as well eat sugar.

Why are stores doing that?  I don’t know.  Maybe it’s shelf life.

This website about the benefits of bee pollen lists:

  • Slows down and even reverses the aging process
  • Super boosts the immune system
  • Prevents and inhibits the growth of mutated cells that lead to diseases such as cancer
  • Its plant sterols and essential fatty acids reduces cholesterol, blood pressure, and the risk of heart disease
  • Relieves the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes by restoring mineral and energy deficiencies
  • Fights bacterial infection the way antibiotics do
  • Corrects and balances problems in the digestive tract and colon
  • Supports weight management by increasing the burn rate of fats and calories
  • Alleviates asthma and allergy symptoms by reducing histamines within the body
  • Eliminates cravings for alcohol and drugs — and removes toxins and contamination from the body
  • Relieves and rebuilds damaged, inflamed tissue (muscles and joints) through its extraordinary levels of antioxidants
  • Combats fatigue, depression, and sleep disorders through its natural supply of “neuro-nutrients”
  • Improves libido balance (oversexed/undersexed) and enhances fertility
  • Facilitates cellular generation and repair, thereby shortening the recovery time from exercise and injury
  • Its protein, iron, and vitamin content, which is higher than any other food and most commercially-developed muscle-building products, enhances muscle mass and definition.

Bee pollen reaches the mitochondrion level (where cell energy production and preservation occur), and this gives it the ability to fight disease, heal the body, combat stress, reduce and reverse aging, and improve the skin’s health and elasticity (e.g. less wrinkling and acne), to name a few.

Emotion is chemical

Our  subconscious minds pick up clues from our environment.  These clues invoke associations in our minds, which send feelings to our consciousness.  These feelings also have the power to trigger hormonal release, as do all emotional responses.  Our association patterns extend, subconsciously, to our relationships with people.  It’s possible to have a dysfunctional marriage, which causes a chronic disease.

You may not consciously remember that you are chronically annoyed with your partner.  The pattern of your relationship could be so embedded, subconsciously, that you don’t have the ability to identify what is wrong.  But, your pituitary gland remembers.  It notifies your endocrine system to keep things out of whack!  Hormones release; emotions flare.  One more time, there you are in the emergency room.

Your home environment could be the toxin that is being released into your body.  Or it could be your work environment.  We are all experts at denial.  Our conscious minds may refuse to blame our interactions with others for the distress we feel.  So the distress goes deeper until it causes a physical response.

What does this mean?

It means that when you have eczema, migraines, a back that goes out, or any other repeating, chronic niggling annoyance in your body, there is an excellent chance it is a result of the stress of your family or work life.

What can you do about it?

Taking pills is not the answer.  You may have to take pills at the moment of the symptom, but the pills don’t solve the chronic stress that is in your life.

You have to re-examine your life and make some changes.  That’s what the disease is telling you.

The Primordial Id and Disease

The primordial id is part of our neurological system.   In each of us, it remains forever a child, and it speaks to us in childish ways.

“Do I have to pound this into your head?” the primordial id says, as the migraines begin.

“Do I have to twist your left arm?” it says, as we feel the pangs of angina.

“Do I have to cut you off at the knees?”  it says, as our knees buckle and we fall.

“Do I have to knock you out?”  it says, as we crumble in exhaustion.

“Do I have to scare you silly?”  it says, as we wake sweating from a nightmare.

“Do I have to pull teeth?” it says, as we feel excruciating mouth pain.

“Are you losing touch?” it says, as the tips of our fingers go numb.

“What?  You won’t quit that aggravating job without a reason?  I’ll give you a reason.”  It says, as we face crippling disability.

The inner id is that primitive survival mechanism of nature, which represents the child in each of us.  Like Peter Pan, it never grows up.  It manifests its desires outwardly in our bodies, although our conscious mind may never know what the inner mind controls.

Is all disease a result of stress?  What do you think?  Do you hear your primordial id?
