BITS AND PIECES
I know it sounds radical, coming from a doctor. When people are doing everything "right" -- eating veggies, avoiding red meat and processed foods, exercising, sleeping well and so forth -- we should expect them to live long, prosperous lives and die of old age while peacefully slumbering, right?
So why is it that so many health nuts are sicker than other people who pig out, guzzle beer and park in front of the TV?
Spiritual Power of Flowers
The practice of sending flowers
is as old as civilization itself. Flowers, with all their infinite
variety and beauty, carry meanings outside of the rational and material
experience. Because they are alive, they are like us, temporary
passengers on an exhilarating ride. But they are also connected to parts
of nature that we never experience. They arise from the soil and enjoy
being out in the rain and the sun. They use animals to pollinate and
keep the planet alive in the process.
Caputo - Real or Fake?
Island Medium seems to get right to the
emotional core of the people she visits and seems to know things that only
the spirits of their dead loved ones could know. But, is she for real?
Are any psychic mediums
for real? Of course, since this is a
TV show, any misses Theresa makes can easily be edited out. Like other
pop culture mediums Miss Cleo, John Edward, and Sylvia Browne...
History of the Occult (PHOTOS)
According to Wikipedia (the most
reliable disource of information I've yet to encounter) the Occult (from
word occultus "clandestine, hidden, secret") means
"knowledge of the hidden." It also describes a number of magical
organizations or orders, the teachings and practices taught by them,
and to a large body of current and historical literature and spiritual
philosophy related to this subject. Well, that's close enough for me.
But how far back does all this spooky stuff go? When did they start
spelling "magic" "magick"?
sightings have doubled in Canada
How to explain the stunning increase in UFO reports ó which have more than doubled in
Canada in the last year? Are observers simply seeing the orange glow of Chinese lanterns
floating aloft? Are they inspired by guitar-strumming Canadian astronaut Chris
Hadfield to gaze skyward, seeking the bright light of the orbiting
space station and seeing other strange phenomena?

Light & Shade of Modern Paganism
Modern Paganism (and by extension
British Traditional Witchcraft which is what Iím an adherent of) is not
all sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows; sometimes it carries a little
darkness with it, and I like that. How many other modern faiths have a
major holiday dedicated to the dead crossing back over into this world?
Marvelous World of Icelandic Herbs
I think it is important not to
forget the old knowledge about herbs and its effects since it makes so
much sense working with what Mother Nature gave us for free. And
after reading both books I feel so much wiser. Not only are there many,
many herbs in Iceland that can be used as remedies, but they are also

- Your Route To Peace -
A few years ago if someone had asked me whether or not I would
consider using meditation as part of my daily routine I would have
laughed. Who was I to need meditation? After all I had TV Programmes to
watch, Playstations to play, Music to listen to, Magazines to read,
Friends to chatter with and everything else under the sun. I didn't need
meditation. Or so I thought.
