This is not how it is in this world, at this point in time, and has not been for quite some time.
To achieve the end of destruction of our Mother Earth-represented by every female walking this planet,
we need the support from all loving brother's, husband's and father's, for them to stand up and say,
enough is enough, we are not going to tolerate this terror against our women, daughter's, sister's, mother's, anymore.
Sexual harassment, child marriages, genital mutilation, rape here and there and everywhere.

Fennel seeds is great not only in cooking but also makes a tasty aromatic tea, great by itself, or as a flavorful addition to other herbal blends.
For those with poor digestion, gas and bloating, a simple cup of fennel tea after a heavy meal can be the most effective remedy, or if you prefer simply chew on a few seeds.
Fennel in addition, reduces bad breath, belching, and acts as an antibacterial in the mouth.

I love to boil some with my ginger tea.
"Despite all our progress,
denial of the feminine is so pervasive that anthropologist Glenn Hughes says a male terror of women is woven into every institution.
It is the denial of the feminine that is destroying the ecosphere.
Mother Earth, like her human daughters,
has become an object to be used."
As above, so below; what is happening in the macro cosmos is also happening in the micro cosmos, it all goes together.
If we can not honor Mother Earth, we can not honor the feminine,
if we can not honor the feminine we can not honor Mother Earth,
and all will be destroyed.
"Only the integration of a healthy sacred masculine and a resurrected divine feminine can save us from our destructive ways."
(citations by Matthew Fox in Hildegard of Bingen)
Narasimha Tava Dasohum
A powerful mantra for protection from negative influences, for those on the path to EnLightment.
Because we cannot isolate ourselves from the people around us,
we must learn how to be a source of positive vibrations.
When we interact with others, we can feel their energy and
they can feel ours.
We can help ourself reduce the negative effects of negative vibrations – we can rid ourself of the clouds in our mind, our fatigue, our worries and illness and all the other harmful effects that continue to bring misery to our life.
It is a matter of attitude, and an active decision by each and everyone. Which world do you want to live in, and what are you willing to do to create it?
