Health Concerns from Flooding, by Robin MacCanna

Health Concerns from Flooding.

The impact of the Category 4, Hurricane Michael, is the third strongest in U.S. history. Just a month ago Hurricane Florence also hammered the East Coast. Last year it was Hurricane Harvey that hit Texas. The damage caused by each of these storms is terrible, causing loss of life and property.

There are even more repercussions which may follow from all this destruction and flooding. The death and decay of farm animals, wildlife and ocean fish in the flood waters, along with hazardous waste from flooded landfills, may result in the rise of disease and epidemics.. The spread of the Red Tide inland and along the coasts is already causing many people respiratory problems.

Hurricane Season in the U.S. typically spans from June through November in the Caribbean, so more storm s are still possible. There is a major concern of what effects these current storms will have on the upcoming Winter. Predictions by the Farmer’s Almanac, prior to these storms, had predicted a severe winter. Will the added spread of water add to this and make it even worse? We must prepare ourselves to deal with whatever Nature has instore.

It is hard to avoid hurricanes, but it would be to our advantage to build our cities and towns appropriately, in anticipation of them, in order to minimize our losses. It would also be intelligent to protect our Earth from the spread of stored chemicals and waste by flood waters. The danger from these things to all life is incalculable because it will contaminate the land and water for years to come.  Future generations will be living in our toxic waste. Crops produced in these areas will contain dangerous chemicals. All life will suffer in various ways from this.

Mankind has reached a point in their existence where the Earth has to be protected from all the dangerous toxic substances and wastes that we have produced. Everything our ancient ancestors made was basically organic, and therefore did not contaminate the land, air or water. The Earth could naturally recycle their things and break them down. Our modern products, however, could last for hundreds of years.

We are ruining our sacred Earth, not just for ourselves, but for all life on the planet for future generations. Correcting this problem must become a top priority. If these practices continue, we will eventually become a barren planet where life will not be able to exist.

It is time for all of us who know and understand this, to stand up and join together to make our voices heard. We must take action to protect our Earth. Please share this post with others. Everyone needs to know this.

Are the Jedi Knights actually Druids? by Robin MacCanna

Are Jedi Knights actually Druids?

 

The fictional Jedi Knights portrayed in the popular Star Wars movies represent the positive “Force” in the universe. They are characterized as warriors, philosophers, peacemakers, protectors, psychics and teachers. Their purpose is to maintain peace and justice between the various Galactic populations. They share some of their functions, beliefs and philosophies of the ancient Druids and Eastern religions. However, there are some modern Druids which do share some of the purposes of the fictional Jedi, such as the Arann Druids.

The fictional Jedi Knights had a Grand Master, a Master Jedi, and regular Jedi. The Jedi also followed a special Jedi Code of ethics.Similarly, the Arann Druids follow a special code of ethic called the Fallainrod, and are comprised of three graduated Orders:

Druid Order (the Order of the Earth), they are Magicians and Diviners. This is the basic Arann Order. Once the Arann Druid has accomplished these abilities they will study and graduate to the Ovate Order.

Ovate Order (the Order of the Light), they are Seers, Healers and Herbalists. This is the second highest Arann Order. Once the Ovate has accomplished these abilities, they will study and graduate to the Fallon Order.

Fallon Order (the Order of Fire), they are Leaders, Warriors, Guardians, Teachers and Adepts. This is the highest level of the Arann Druid Orders. Arann Fallons are accomplished in all the functions of Druid and Ovate Orders.

The Arann Druids, Ovates, and Fallons work together performing their functions and in achieving their Earth related goals. They perform seasonal rites throughout the year to honor the Earth, the natural Elements, their Ancestors an their personal Dieities. Arann Druidry is essentially universalist and, therefore, is open to everyone regardless of their religion, race or gender.

The main purpose of the Arann Druids is to help protect our Earth Mother, and to teach others to honor Her and care for Her. They follow a special code of positive ethics and values known as the Fallainrod, (The Healthy Way), which promotes peace, justice and balance.

Arann Druids work to protect all life, the Environment and their Orders, by using the energies of the Natural Elements, Sun, Moon and Stars. It is foreseeable that they will become like the Jedi Knights, and be among those who will travel to the stars to colonize other planets in the future.

Healing the Earth, by Robin MacCanna

Healing the Earth

 

The famed Scientist James Lovelock, in his book “The Gaia Hypothesis”, reveals how our Earth is self-regulating and provides an environment which supports its lifeforms. This is done though the inter-action of all its organic lifeforms and inorganic elements. Earth, therefore is like a living organism itself.

The Earth, being self-regulating, is now reacting to these things and is in the process of re-balancing itself. This is evident in the changing weather conditions. Storms will only continue to grow worse as time goes on.

Our ancient ancestors recognized that our Earth was like a mother, in that it gives us birth, nurtures us with food, and provides us with a temperate environment. They honored the Earth and conducted a variety of rites which gave thanks to Her. They also learned to live in balance on the Earth.

Things are very different now. Modern man does not honor the Earth, or live in balance on Her. In fact, we do just the opposite. Our modern lifestyles cause major in-balances. We clear rain forests, drill, mine, pollute, and poison our environment.   We kill various wildlife indiscriminately and conduct massive wars. Our production of goods and genetically modified food is creating a planet which is not self- sustaining, and which will eventually become barren and lifeless in the future.

It is time for mankind seriously work to heal the Earth, by stopping its pollution to the land, air and seas, eliminating genetically modified crops and the use of dangerous pesticides. If we don’t re-establish a balance we will destroy the ecology and the essential life-forms we need to survive.

Modern man must also learn to honor the Earth as the ancients did, by caring for Her. Humans need to realize that that they are not separate from nature, but are only a part of it. The present ideology that mankind, being the smartest species on the planet, is in charge of the Earth. This belief, as taught by various religions, is egotistical and destructive.

We all must join together and be a part of a new grass-roots movement to heal our Earth. We must Live as environmentally friendly as we can. We need to join with others to enact changes that eliminate all the dangerous practices that are destroying and poisoning our environment. We also need to conduct Earth rites to honor Her, and then teach others how to do them.

Ultimately, we must strive to change the profit-at-any-cost culture by rejecting dangerous practices and the manufacture of products that harm our Earth. It is a big undertaking, but if we don’t do this we will face the consequences.

“May the Earth always be in your heart, mind and spirit, and in the way you live your life.”

Prediction: Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections – a Potential Threat to Earth, by Robin MacCanna

Solar Flares and Coronal Mass Ejections -a Potential Threat to Earth

 

Solar flares are a natural occurrence on our sun which vary in their intensity during its 11-year cycles, where it transitions from a Solar Maximum to a Solar Minimum. Solar radiation that is emitted from these storms is known as a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), which is accompanied by a cloud of solar particles.  If these charged particles reach the earth they would create geomagnetic storms that disrupt satellites, GPS navigation and the electronic grids. In 1989 a CME hit the power grid in Quebec with a surge of power, causing it to collapse. Consequently, millions of people lost electrical power.

The Earth has been fortunate that most CME’s have missed the Earth in the past. However, If a large enough CME struck the Earth it could potentially destroy modern civilization. Many nations would collapse because transportation would cease, food production, manufacturing and refrigeration would be non-existent, hospitals couldn’t function, and communication lines would be shut down. Financial institutions would also close and water purification plants would not be able to function.

As a result of this, the effects of a CME on humans would be catastrophic. Millions of people could die of starvation, disease and violence.  The governments would not be able to control their people and mass emigration would result.

A CME strike would not affect the entire Earth with power failures, just those areas where it hit. However, non-strike areas would feel the financial, trade, and rescue affects, making their stability very questionable. Human existence on Earth would be set back hundreds of years.

Fortunately, our Earth protects us from solar flares enabling all life to exist. The Earth’s magnetosphere diverts charged particles, much like a moving car’s windshield repels the rain, pushing it toward the poles. The Earth’s ionosphere gases absorb the radiation from solar flares, preventing us from reaching the surface. If a massive CME did manage to break through these two spheres its effects would be minimized.

That the Earth is a protector of all its life forms, there is no doubt. Mankind needs to appreciate this and honor the Earth and work to keep Her healthy and strong. At present we are doing just the opposite.  According to the famed Scientist, James Lovelock, who wrote “The Gaia Hypothesis”, the Earth’s atmosphere (which includes the ionosphere and magnetosphere) is maintained by the biosphere. The biosphere is the global ecology and its interaction with all its organic life and its elements.

However, we are damaging our biosphere with all the pollution that we are creating and, therefore, weakening our natural protection of the atmosphere. This will allow more solar to affect us and enable a CME to hit our Earth.

If mankind wants to survive, we need to get back to basics and care for our Earth and honor Her, so we may remain protected. Its time we realize that our Earth, Gaia, is sacred. We have to learn to live in balance on Her as our ancient ancestors once did.

Please share this post with others. Everyone needs to know this.

Prediction: The Earth Will Rebalance Itself Very Soon. -by Robin MacCanna

Prediction: The Earth will Rebalance Very Soon.

James Lovelock, the famous independent scientist developed the “Gaia Hypothesis” in the 1970’s. He formulated that the Earth’s living organisms interact with each other and with their inorganic environments. This results in a self-regulating system that is able to sustain life.

This also means that the eco-system, which is comprised of living organisms, has a direct effect on the atmosphere and produces the oxygen necessary to produce complex life forms. When changes occur to the eco-system or its environment, the Earth will begin to rebalance to reflect the new conditions.

There is a natural occurrence of changes, which are caused by geological factors such as continental shifts and the resultant earthquakes and volcanoes. There are also changes that are caused by the sun. Solar radiation is essential to warm the Earth. When there is an over-abundance abundance of solar storms more radiation hits our Earth and it affects the atmosphere.

There are also un-natural causes which affect the Earth, which are caused by mankind. Pollution, drilling, mining, production of toxic chemicals and waste and the clearing of the rainforests each have a serious effect. These things pose a serious threat to all life.

As a result of all the natural and un-natural changes to the environment and to the eco-system, the Earth, being self-regulating, is in the process of rebalancing itself. This means that more severe changes will begin to occur to the normal seasonal cycles. The weather patterns will change from their usual patterns or become erratic.  We can see this happening now with hotter than normal summer, droughts, excessive rainfalls and snow-falls which cause flooding.

Ultimately, the prediction is this: Mankind must take this seriously and begin to stop or significantly reduce all the un-natural things that they are doing to our Earth or things are going get much worse in a very short time.  There is little that can be done about the natural occurrences and we will have to make it through them, with the relocation of populations to safer, un-polluted areas if possible.

In all likelihood, governments, corporations and people will not change what they are doing because there is too much money at stake and things will continue as they are until it is too late. Only the individuals who are aware of what is coming will be able to prepare themselves and be ready.

We all need to work together to institute the changes that will protect our Earth. A good start would be for each individual to become connected to the Earth and to get others to join them.  There is strength in numbers.

“May the Earth always be in your heart, mind and spirit, and in the way you live your life.”

liveworldpress: The Benefits of Celebrating Nature with Celtic Rites, by Robin MacCanna

The Benefits of Celebrating Nature with Celtic Rites

We live in a modern world, surrounded by technology, which has made our living easier and brought us many comforts. We find pleasure in all the visual and mental stimulation provided by our electronic devices such as wide screen TV’s, smart phones, computers, video games and movies. We watch sports more than we actually play them. Consequently, many people have become more sedentary and less physical, withdrawing from their natural place in the world. Nature still surrounds all of us but many largely ignore its beauty and its importance.

The ancient Celts, for example, did not have our lifestyles, but they did have a close connection to nature. Nature sustained them with all the basics: food, water, fire, and shelter. They had to spend most of their time and effort getting these things in order to survive, this work made them strong and kept them healthy

In the process of survival, the Celts learned the how to connect with the Earth in important ways. They viewed the Earth as a Mother which provided for them and conducted rites of appreciation as the seasons changed and the harvests were gathered. They learned to read signs in nature to predict the weather, plant seeds, hunt, and relocate. They gathered into tribes and built towns and forts and their numbers multiplied.

Every year they had special festivals and holidays to celebrate the Earth and their place upon it. They were spiritually strong in the belief in their special Deities who aided them and protected them, in medicine, child birth, the hunt, crop growth and against any aggressors. Their special ritual practices provided them with the added mental strength necessary to keep them going even in hard times.

Modern man has lost most of this. We now rely on science for all our answers, which it usually has, even if it is wrong. We are not living off of the land as the Celts did and would be hard put to survive without our technology. We no longer have the necessary connection to nature that we must have should disaster strike.

In order to get back to Nature and connected to the Earth we need to turn off our devices and get out of doors more. Hike, plant some crops, go camping, and study all the wonders you see and conduct meaningfully special rites as the Celts did to honor the Earth. This will build your strength and improve your mental health. You will also learn some skills that will help you in any tough situations.

Modern Celtic Rites include seasonal holidays, harvests and Sun festivals in the N. Hemisphere:

The Summer Solstice -(June22nd) – the longest day of the year

Lughnasadh- (August 1st) – the beginning of the summer Harvest

Mabon- (September 22nd– the Equinox, the beginning of autumn.

Samhain-(October31st)- a day to honor your deceased relatives and ancestors

The Winter Solstice- (December 22nd) -the shortest day of the year, the beginning of winter

Imbolg- (February 2nd)- the first stirrings of life in the Earth as the daylight grows longer

Eostara- (March 22nd)- the Vernal Equinox, the beginning of Spring

Beltane – (May 1st) -celebrating the fertility, new life, planting, and the coming of summer

It is meaningful and beneficial to commemorate these special holidays by always honoring the Earth Mother which sustains us, any Divinities that you worship for aiding and protecting you, and your ancestors whose blood runs in your veins. The amount of energy you will receive by doing this will help keep you strong both mentally and physically.

“May the Earth always be in your heart, mind and spirit, and in the way you live your life.”

liveworldpress: Connecting with the Changing Earth, by Robin MacCanna

Connecting with the Changing Earth

Our Earth gives birth to all life upon it and initially provides each form of life with everything that is needed to sustain it. If any of the necessary life-sustaining conditions change, life forms must change and adapt to the new conditions or become extinct.

The disappearance of the dinosaurs is an example of a species that what not able to adapt to rapidly cooling climate conditions, caused by a giant meteor strike, in what is now called the Gulf of Mexico. Mankind was not yet on Earth at that time, but it would be put to the same test later in time, with numerous ice ages.

Our ancient ancestors managed to survive and barely avoid extinction through their close connectivity to the Earth and the elements. However, modern man for the most part, has lost its connectivity to the Earth. This is evident in the lack of care we show for our environment, which is polluted with all our waste, which will eventually create unsustainable living conditions for any lifeforms.

As an intelligent species, we must take action to save our Earth by stopping our careless practices and begin caring for our planet.  Mankind’s actions have created a geological in-balance which is impacting the normal environmental cycles. Excessive mining, drilling, forest clearing, excavation, population growth and pollution are some of the main reasons.

We, as a species, will be faced with survival challenges again in the future, and we must be ready. There is no guarantee that we will survive if we don’t start to seriously work to save our planet from harmful practices that are ruining it.

On an individual basis, we must live as environmentally responsible as we can by cutting down on our waste, by recycling everything we can, and by not buying and using any toxic chemicals such as weed killers and insecticide. Get others to join with you to pressure the government to ban these things and to stop harmful practices that danger our planet.

We also need to learn how to connect with the Earth and her elements, as our ancient ancestors did in spiritual ways. Get out in nature more and feel all the elements and get connected with them. They are a necessary part of our existence and we are dependent on them to stay in balance to sustain us. Learn how to spiritually honor each of the Earth, Water and Fire elements individually, with special Earth Rites that show your dedication and commitment. Once you do this you will begin to feel their energies and it will amaze you. You will also be able to work with and use these energies to help heal the Earth.

“May the Earth always be in your heart, mind and spirit, and in the way that you live your life.”
