Shake Up Your Christmas Traditions

Christmas TraditionsIf you think about the Christmas period, it is just jam-packed with traditions. Most likely you have incorporated many of the traditions that your parents had in their homes when you were growing up.

But sometimes doing Christmas, or just the season in general the exact same way that you have always done, can be a bit anti-climactic, and for the women it can often be a stressful and exhausting time.

So, why not try shaking up your old traditions:

• Why not try setting out something different for Santa and the reindeers. If you don’t like mince-pies, carrots and sherry – then make it brandy and cookies, or chocolate and gin/tonic!

• If you always open your presents before breakfast, then why not extend the suspense and open them after the Queens speech… (more…)

The Tradition of Christmas Cards

Christmas CardsI have to confess that I love sending cards, whether it is birthday cards, thank you cards, new home cards or Christmas cards. I like everything about the process, the occasion it is celebrating, picking a card that suits that person, and sending it off with good wishes.

But the advent of modern technology, has meant that more and more people rely on electronic communications to send their good tidings. There are some good reasons for this, environmentally there is paper and card, some of which can’t be recycled, postage costs, as well as the time and effort it takes, when we are ever increasingly feeling crunched for time.

Thrive this Summer

SummerAs I write this article England is in the throes of what can only be described as a heat-wave. It’s the glorious weather we can only dream about, and plenty of us pay good money each year to ensure we get some by holidaying abroad. But somehow when you are working, and trying to sleep at night, it’s all not so funny. So how can you thrive during summer rather than just survive?

Heat Stroke

Heat exhaustion is not just a possibility in foreign climes, it can happen just as easily at home… Typical symptoms are nausea, dizziness, cramps, thirst, tiredness, headache and even a fast pulse. It is caused by the body losing too much water and salt, through sweating, either due to extreme heat or maybe from playing sport in very hot weather. To guard against it happening, ensure that you stay well hydrated, try to eat more water rich foods in your diet (think cucumber and watermelon), and stay out of the sun during the height of the day between 11am-3pm, and seek shade where possible. If you do get caught out, then remove unnecessary clothes, lie down, get into as cool a place as possible, drink water, and try and cool the skin. (more…)

March Calendar

March 20181st – St David’s Day

St David is of course the patron saint of Wales, the 1st celebrates both the life of the saint and Welsh culture, but interestingly the saint is also celebrated in Canada and the USA. Not that much is known about St David, it is thought he lived to be 100, but texts about him only appeared 500 years later. So, some of his story may be true, others may just be legends. He was known to have founded several churches and a monastery, and he went on to become an archbishop, eventually he was canonised.

2nd – Full Moon – Worm Moon

At this time of year, a full moon is known as a worm moon, as a result of early Native American tribes seeing this as the time of year that earthworms would appear due to the ground softening. But it also has other names: Full Crow Moon, Full Crust Moon, Full Sap Moon and Lenten Moon. (more…)

RAMA – Part 1 & Christmas Offer

Christmas SaleRama

By Reader John, PIN: 5152

The second historical reference to a prophet is one of the male sex. His name was RAMA. The exact date of his birth is unknown, what is known, is that, he became a threat to Voulspa when her intuition and power was waning. He was educated in the arts and sciences and believed that science, philosophy, and religion were part of life. He stated that to know life, one must study all three.

It was many years later that other less advanced, within the spiritual concepts of life, decided as in politics, that 3 kings of diverse opinions would be better to confuse life, so no one would understand. This is called empire building.

Rama was most concerned over the human sacrifices demanded by Voluspa and her followers. While his concern about the sacrifices was taking up much of his attention, a devastating plague began to infect and kill the people. Rama believed it was a visitation of TUET-TAD or God, and it was happening to punish them, because of the sacrificial destruction of lives. (more…)

Why not try Interpreting Flames this Bonfire Night?

Bonfire FlamesThe 5th of November is associated with Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot, and up and down the country celebrations will take place on the weekend of the 4th/5th November, many of which will have fires as part of their display.

The historical significance of Bonfire Night has been somewhat lost against modern celebrating with large organised bonfire and big firework displays, so if you are looking at ways of celebrating the evening with a more spiritual twist then why not turn your hand to Pyromancy?

Pyromancy

Pyromancy describes an ancient form of divination using fire to predict future events, search for good and bad omens, as well as foretell good and bad health. Using fire as a form of foresight is probably one of the earliest forms of divining.

-          If a fire burned vigorously and crackled then the future was considered promising

-          If a fire was clear (transparent – non-yellow/red flames), that would be a good omen (more…)

Health Snippets

Hay FeverHay Fever

Cases of hay fever are on the rise, the reason is up for debate, it could be climate change, the pollen season is now longer, and possibly we have lower levels of the right type of bacteria’s to stop our immune systems overreacting. But what can we do? Choose sunglasses that wrap around, to prevent pollen entering your eyes. Try a barrier in your nostrils such as Vaseline or a specially made product to trap pollen. Pollen rises during the day and then descends in the evening, making night-time symptoms worse, avoid going outside at these trigger times if possible. Think twice about drying clothes/bedlinen outside or at least in the evening, to avoid bringing trapped pollen into your home. Discuss with your GP if antihistamines and/or intranasal corticosteroids are the right treatment for you. (more…)

June: Dates to Remember

Father's DaySummer Solstice

The summer solstice takes place on Wednesday 21st June and will mark the longest day – the high solar point of 2017. In times gone by fires would have been lit on hill tops to mark the highest point of the sun. For Druids the occasion is still special and will be considered a ritualistic time symbolising power, success and health. There are special incenses and herbs associated with this time of year – St John’s Wort, Elder, Fennel, Verbena, Chamomile and lavender. You can mark the occasion at home by lighting candles in orange or gold colours representing confidence and joy. (more…)

Superstitions: Easter

  • Easter CrossOn Palm Sunday (9th April), folk would gather hazel and in some cases would make the hazel twigs into crosses to be blessed by their priest. This plant was gathered specifically to guard against thunder and lightning.
  • In many parts of the UK it is tradition to bake bread on Good Friday (14th April); many do it to protect against fire, but in coastal areas it is to protect against shipwrecks for loved ones working at sea, it is also thought of as a cure for many diseases. Traditionally the baked bread would be hung in the kitchen to keep it dry and from going bad, supposedly it would remain edible for a year without going stale or spoiling.

Happy Mother’s Day

Mother's DayWhen I wrote this article Beyoncé had pretty much broken the internet, for what you might ask – announcing a performance at something big like the Super Bowl, dropping a new album unannounced, advising her fans of tickets going on sale for her concerts? No – in fact it’s because she is pregnant and with twins no less!

Beyoncé and Jay Z already have a daughter – Blue Ivy who is five years old, speculation was rife at the time that she did not carry the baby herself, perhaps using a surrogate. Which may in part explain why she has so publicly depicted this pregnancy with a series of nearly-nude photos. That of course has not stopped the rumour-mill going into overdrive with questions of whether she used IVF, to become pregnant, with many believing the chances are higher as she is having twins… (more…)
