Freewebs: Awen is considered to be the spirit of Nature; or the spirit of inspiration and creativity The three strokes represent three shafts of light which signify earth, sea and air; body, mind and spirit; love, wisdom and truth. In truth they represent three separate parts that all work in together.
This sign ought to remind us of the three foundations of Awen;
To understand truth To love truth To maintain truth.
Awen is the wisdom, truth and most of all the inspiration, Awen is Nature, the universal power behind life, yet it is never born and shall never die. Awen is a force or energy forged from an indivisible source that is the power behind the physical and non-physical or spirit forms Existence, and distinction between the natural and the super-natural becomes meaningless, as both are the personification of Awen Every link which is a part of nature, be it a man, animal, plant or elemental force, each holds its own little piece and together make up the whole chain which is Awen. Awen is the spirit of Druid itself, it is knowing, sensing and feeling it in your essence and true being, it is the freedom to accept ones nature...read more>>>...
Daily OM: Striking the right balance between our physical and spiritual aspects is one of the most challenging aspects of existence. We are dual beings by nature, spiritual entities bound to earth by physical bodies. In our lifetimes, we are charged with the duty of nurturing and tending both with equal devotion and love. Yet while both aspects of the self are deserving of honor and respect, there is a tendency for people who are more spiritually focused to ignore, avoid, or dismiss their bodies. Similarly, many individuals are entirely ensconced in the carnal realm and pay no attention to the needs of the soul. In both cases, an adjustment is in order. We are whole only to the degree that we embrace both sides of our beings.
If the soul is the inward manifestation of our consciousness, the body is the living, breathing expression of that consciousness. The physical self provides the home in which the spiritual self takes root and flourishes. Just as we must tend to the seed of the soul to ensure that it grows strong, so, too, must we care for the protective shell that is the body to make certain it is capable of playing its role in our development. Though there will no doubt be times in our lives when we feel more comfortable focusing on the spiritual self or the physical self, denying the fundamental importance of one or the other can lead to ill health, emotional distress, and a sense of incompleteness. Both facets of the human experience play a vital role in our well-being...read more>>>...
Pau d'Arco bark has active principles, mainly lapachol, quercetin and other flavonoids. The dried inner bark of Pau d'Arco can be used as a tea which has a taste that is just a little bit harsh, and a color that may remind you of sepia-toned photographs. Some claim that it is useful in managing diabetes. It is also suggested that this plant is useful in treating other medical conditions, amongst which are fibromyalgia (FMS) and lupus (SLE). This herbal tea is used by many during the cold and flu season, and is a remedy for smoker's cough. Another medicinal use of Pau d'Arco is as an expectorant: to promote "coughing up" by the lungs in order to free mucus and contaminants that had been lodged there.
Pau d'Arco tea or tincture concoctions have reportedly had beneficial effects for cancer patients, anywhere from alleviation of chemotherapy symptoms to complete remission of tumors. According to Dr. Daniel Mowrey, who has become somewhat famous in the area of Pau d'Arco supporters, anti-cancer benefits can be had from Lapacho (the active compound), without any side effects being noticed (but see cautions page for potential side effects). Taheebo, another name that is used for this tea, is suggested to have been helpful to many...read more>>>...

S.O.T.T:This extraordinary photograph taken by a resident of the hitherto unremarkable Greater London borough - apart from being the birthplace of England football captains Bobby Moore and John Terry of course - was taken by a local resident. Mirjeta Binoke, 38, was in her back garden with friends recently when she looked up at the night sky and saw the moon flanked by four stars. She thought it would make a nice picture and went indoors to get her camera phone.
"When we looked at the picture we saw this image there and everybody was amazed by it. My first thought was that it might be a creature like a pigeon, but everyone said it looks like an angel," she said. The story gets curiouser as well. Two days before the angel picture was taken construction company director Mirjeta's son was in his bedroom when he reported to his parents that there had a been a very bright white flash coming from above the house and outside his window. Mirjeta, a church-going catholic, said: "We didn't believe him at first but when we saw the image in the picture it certainly made us think."
Daily Om: Many of us wonder why we do not remember who we were before we were born. We wonder what it was like to be a soul without a body and what it will be like to be one again. Many of us have a strange sense that we do remember, as if we did experience a bodiless existence, but we can’t quite recall the details. We may remember feeling as if we were flying, or as if we were just incredibly light and unrestricted in our movements. Still, most of us do not recall anything in detail about the time before we incarnated into a human body. There are many possible reasons for this deep forgetting, one of which is that remembering would probably impinge upon our ability to fully commit to this life. Experiencing life on earth without any memory of an alternative existence allows us to be here completely, and that is what is required in order for us to learn much of what we must learn here. Most of us are not meant to spend our time here preoccupied with concerns beyond the realm of this lifetime. Instead, it is our job to occupy our bodies and our planet with a fullness that would not be possible if we were constantly aware of another, and extremely different, realm of existence...read more>>>...
So what are some of the characteristics of a typical psychic hard seller; a charlatan or plastic psychic for want of a better name?
They are distinctly unethical in their morals. They may write about being all 'love and light' in their leaflets, on web sites, and on social media ... and they may fool a number of hapless and vulnerable souls with their glossy and fake book cover. In truth they are anything but that in their 'real lives' ... when the 'cameras are off them' they are nothing more than business women (Or men) who see the psychic industry as an exploitation racket.
They have the expensive clothes, the gift of the gab with viper tongue and clever selling techniques to hand. They are clever marketers with bulk e-mails and circulatory e-mails touting their wares. They have hastily acquired 'qualifications' as long as their arm on their web sites ... 'invitations to treat' to deceive the unwary.
They are quick thinking, always with an answer or an explanation to cover up their apparent lack of experience in the industry. They are quick to judge and defamate the genuine articles who can expose the charlatan hard sellers ...
They care not about their 'followers' but crave the adoration that being followed brings. They discard anyone who opposes them or refuses to adhere to their 'moral standing'. They are callous and cruel in their judgements of others. They will basically do anything and everything to get to the top. They care not about destroying the reputations of those who stand in their way. They exhibit strong pathological and sociopath tendencies ... are apparently devoid of guilt or conscience. Often playing the victim having set off people in their psycho dramas.
Sadly ... they may be in towns or cities near you. You may even have met one recently. They come across as charming and apparently spiritual. But it is only in appearance. You may have visited one of their web sites or social media pages recently ... and their page will be filled with wondrous quotes and phrases. They make out they are super popular and busy in their trade ... even when they are not. If you suspect you know one of these charlatans ... spend some time looking behind their facade. Cracks will be there ...I can guarantee it.
News.com.au: OMINOUS. Forbidding. Mystical. But, now, everything we think we know about the ancient landmark Stonehenge may be wrong. New clues reveal it may have been a busy, bustling hive of activity. Previously it was thought to be a temple of the dead, accessed once or twice a year by a solemn procession winding its way along the River Avon and Salisbury Plain from a woodhenge — a nearby “temple of life”.
Stonehenge was supposed to be a serene place. A magical place. But it may not have always been so. And it certainly isn’t now (with the adjoining highway, carpark and visitor centre). A recent extensive survey of the fields around the 4000-year-old iconic standing stones has uncovered 15 possible new Neolithic structures. ‘Possible’ because they haven’t been excavated yet...read more>>>...
Daily Mail: Could a UFO have visited Texas this week? Several people have taken it to Twitter to post pictures showing a strange object floating through the Houston clouds during a storm last Monday. Some of the pictures show a bright oval object hovering. An unrelated picture shows a similar object through clouds. There are others, some showing what appears to be lights underneath the 'thing.''I think the trick in UFO's is figuring out what else they could be,' Dr. Carolyn Sumners, vice president for Astronomy at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, told KPRC.
'It's easy to say that could be the aliens,' she added. Sumners said that the stormy weather in Houston on Monday could be an explanation...read more>>>...

Daily OM: Overachievers are people who have achieved but still feel the need to do more, creating an imbalance in their lives. People who exhibit this behavior may be trying to compensate for feelings of insecurity and doubts about their worth. They may be chasing unresolved issues from their past into the present, or they might not be looking at their lives as a whole, but judging themselves based only on one aspect of their being. If this is a word that we’ve heard used with respect to our choices and lifestyle, it is worth examining in order to balance our lives for a more rewarding experience.
If we find that we cannot allow ourselves to experience and enjoy the present moment, putting pleasure off into some distant future, it may be a sign that we are being driven to achieve more than is truly necessary. Pushing ourselves beyond the point of exhaustion, or to the exclusion of important people in our lives, robs us of true and meaningful joy. Once we make the connection to the eternal part of us, it can nourish us and allow our priorities to shift from chasing after an elusive feeling to being fully present in the moment so that we can live our lives in the now...read more>>>...

What is next for us cosmically? The huge Mayan shift back in 2012 has definitely left us with something to think about, but is anyone really aware of just what that shift filled with subtle nuances entails? How do we identify with anything subtle in this not-so-subtle world? Why aren’t we seeing the effects of a shift in the world? Doesn’t it feel as if things have just gotten far worse lately? Well this is largely because the shift was like Y2K on steroids and most of us didn’t even know it. Sure we went right back to resuming our normal daily lives because well, ahem, (shuffles feet) the world did not end as we thought. However, the ever-fixated external world continues to insist on its absolute necessity to be our absolute necessity, absolutely!... read more>>>...
Zerohenge: The concept of conspiracy frightens some people, so much so that they are willing to overlook any and all evidence that world events are for the most part directed, rather than chaotic and coincidental.
For those who are uneducated and unaware, explanations for the terrible tides of politics and war generally revolve around a false understanding of Occam’s razor. They argue that the theory states that the “simplest explanation” is usually the correct one for any particular problem or crisis. But Occam’s razor actually states that the simplest explanation according to the evidence at hand is usually the correct answer for any given problem. That is to say, the simplest explanation must conform to the evidence, or it is likely not correct.
Unfortunately, “skeptics” of directed conspiracy often turn a blind eye to evidence that is contrary to their simple explanations, while arguing that simplification is its own vindication. In other words, they don’t feel the need to defend their simplistic world view because, in their minds, simplicity stands on its own as self-evident. There was a time when men believed that the planets revolved around each other because they were tied together by long glass strings, and this was evident to them because it was the simplest explanation they could come up with. The thinking of skeptics of the New World Order and concerted globalization is much like this.
The most common argument they tend to exploit is that the world is far too “chaotic” and that if the elites are actually seeking a fully centralized one-world system, they are “failing miserably” because so many cultures are so clearly divided. For anyone who holds this argument as logical or practical, first I would suggest they look beyond the surface of the various conflicts at the similarities between these so called “enemies.”...read more>>>...

Alt Headlines: The term Anunnaki is often used in ancient texts as referring to a group of gods. The name is a derivative of the names heaven and earth, Anu and Ki but is also translated by some as “those of royal blood” and also “princely offspring”. Some even believe the Anunnaki are sons and daughters of the gods, heaven and earth.
They are said to have created or come from the Mesopotamian culture. There are others who believe they are a form of extra-terrestrial beings (reptilian or serpent race) from outer space or sometimes more specifically from the planet Nibiru/Planet X that at one time lived on this planet or still do on another plane of existence. More on the details on this later in this article. The planet of Nibiru or Planet X, discussed in Zechariah Sitchin’s book about his translations of Sumerian mythological writings, is said to be the home planet of a race of beings called the Anunnaki. In Sitchin’s books, the Anunnaki are described as beings whose planet was dying, who came to earth in search of gold that could be used to save the atmosphere on Nibiru.
The Anunnaki, sometimes being described or depicted as reptilian, are said to have copulated with Earth females and genetically engineered mankind. It is also discussed that their intention was to create a slave race in us humans. Many ancient documents found throughout history in various cultures make mention of being born from serphant gods. These same documents have given rise to the ancient astronaut theories on how advanced structures were created around the world way beyond the technology that would have been available to the civilizations at the time...read more>>>...
Natural News: Wi-Fi is so convenient these days that is has become a common part of our daily life. We use Wi-Fi on our phones, laptops, computers, and tablets. It floats around our homes, bars, restaurants, and work environment.

Well actually we all know deep down that it is bad for our health, scientific results are clear and shocking, but nevertheless we are expanding our magnetic fields every day.Wi-Fi is everywhere and these days more and more people are feeling its negative effects on their health. One study found that in modern and urban areas almost 40% of the people who live there have minor complaints that are linked to heavy concentrations of EMFs, while 8% suffer more serious issue...read more>>>...
How in the world is it possible that more than 170 health workers have been infected by the Ebola virus? That is the one question about Ebola that nobody can seem to answer. The World Health Organization is reporting this as a fact, but no explanation is given as to why this is happening. We are just assured that Ebola “is not airborne” and that getting infected “requires close contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person”. If this is true, then how have more than 170 health workers caught the disease? These workers are dressed head to toe in suits that are specifically designed to prevent the spread of the virus.

Daily Mail: From a lunar base to alien spaceships, the dark secrets hidden in the moon's surface have long been a source of fascination for conspiracy theorists. Now one YouTube user believes he has made the ultimate find on images from Google Moon - an alien figure lurking in the satellite’s deep craters.
Wowforreel's video shows what he says could be an alien figure walking along the surface and it has already been viewed more than two million times in less than a month. However, the most likely explanation for the sighting is a psychological phenomenon called Pareidolia, which is the brain's response to seeing faces and other significant objects in random stimulus.The strange shape can also be seen on Google Moon at 27°34’26.35″N 19°36’4.75″W.
Tom Rose, a paranormal explainer, wrote in the Examiner the figure bears an uncanny resemblance to what the ancient statue, 'The Colossus of Rhodes', is thought to have looked like before it was felled a massive earthquake in 226 BC. Wowforreel said he started investigating the shadow after receiving an online tip from another web user named Jasenko...read more>>>...
Shaman Portal: Shamanism refers to a range of traditional beliefs and practices concerned with communication with the spirit world. There are many variations in shamanism throughout the world, though there are some beliefs that are shared by all forms of shamanism:
1.The spirits can play important roles in human lives. 2.The shaman can control and/or cooperate with the spirits for the community's benefit. 3. The spirits can be either good or bad. 4. Shamans get into a trance by singing, dancing, taking entheogens, meditating and drumming. 5. Animals have an important role, acting as omens & message-bearers; 6. The shaman's spirit leaves the body and enters into the supernatural world during certain tasks. 7. The shamans can treat illnesses or sickness. 8. Shamans are healers, psychics, gurus and magicians.
Its practitioners claim the ability to diagnose and cure human suffering and, in some societies, the ability to cause suffering. This is believed to be accomplished by traversing the axis mundi and forming a special relationship with, or gaining control over, spirits. Shamans have been credited with the ability to control the weather, divination, the interpretation of dreams, astral projection, and traveling to upper and lower worlds. Shamanistic traditions have existed throughout the world since prehistoric times...read more>>>...
S.O.T.T: One way to think of the Universe is like a grand resonating drum, reverberating in the field of consciousness. Like a cave that responds to sound waves with an echo, the universe actually responds to thoughts and intentions as well as actions. It's important to realize that more than just echoing these back to you in the precise form you sent them, the Universe collaborates with you.
As your partner in the projects you want to realize, the experiences you want to attract and the goals you want to achieve, the Universe may have different options or interpretations to offer which could differ from what you expect. This is why it is necessary to be open minded and trust in this process. In fact, it can help to consider, what if the Universe has plans for me that are even better than the ones I can imagine? You'll never find out unless you can let go of some of that control and expand your vision.
Many people have a narrow view when it comes to their goals and desires, keeping a tight grip on their initial vision: "My future job/partner/project must look exactly like X, or I will not accept. I met this expectation of myself."
If you have this tunnel vision, it may cause you to miss opportunities because you fail to recognize them as such. Often things show up in our lives in a different form then we expect, but with the means to bring us to where we ultimately want to go. If you can let go of a controlling grip and open your mind to alternate paths, you will begin to see how to use what comes back to you...read more>>>...
Daily Om: Every crafts person has a toolbox full of tools and a number of techniques to help them bring inspiration into form. In the same way, throughout our lives, we have discovered our own life tools and techniques—the ways and means that have helped us create our lives up to this point. Sometimes we forget about the tools and skills we’ve acquired, and we wonder why we aren't moving forward. At times like these, it might just be a matter of remembering what we already know, and rediscovering the tools we already have at our disposal. In the process of becoming who we are and creating our lives, we have all gone through the experience of being inspired to do something and then finding the tools we needed to do it. If we look back, we may be able to remember that we used, for example, the tool of writing every day in order to clarify our intentions. We may also have used the tools of ritual, meditation, or visualization to make something happen. In addition, we may have been fueled by a new idea about how the universe works, which is what gave us the inspiration to use these tools...read more>>>...
Daily Mail: Oscar winning actor and comedian Robin Williams has been found dead at his home in California after apparently killing himself at the age of 63.
The star of Good Will Hunting, Good Morning Vietnam and Mrs Doubtfire, who battled depression and an addiction to cocaine and alcohol for decades, was found 'unconscious and not breathing' in his mansion just outside San Francisco at around noon yesterday. Marin County Sheriff's Office said it believed Williams' death was a suicide due to asphyxia - reportedly by hanging - and an autopsy with toxicology tests will be carried out later today. Williams had not been seen in public since his birthday three weeks ago and it is not known if he left a suicide note.
Last month the married father of three was back in rehab 'fine-tuning' his sobriety in a year where he had been working on six movies and a TV series, and his publicist said he had been 'battling severe depression of late'. His distraught wife Susan Schneider revealed her husband had died in a statement last night and said: 'This morning I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one if its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken'...read more>>>...
S.O.T.T: A team of Wellington ghost-hunters have been left stumped after being asked to investigate an international mystery. James Gilberd, leader and co-founder of Strange Occurrences - a Wellington-based paranormal unit that investigates haunted homes, historic buildings and photos - was sent a photo by a woman in the United States who believed she had captured the ghost of a soldier on camera.
Gilberd, a photographer by trade, like most of his team, said: "I don't know much about finding ghosts, but I know photographs."
Petra Brooks, from Georgia, took a photo of her granddaughter while waiting for July 4 fireworks to start. While deleting some photos, she found a picture of what she believed was a ghostly soldier figure.
She sent an email to Gilberd, asking: "Is this truly a spirit I captured?"
He ruled out PhotoShop but thought perhaps it was a real person walking past and a case of "selective attention" - where the person taking the photo doesn't notice other things.
However, both Brooks and the man sitting beside her were adamant no one was walking past at the time...READ MORE>>>...

Deanna and Tom Simpson have lived at the Maple Avenue, Hanover, home for seven years even though they say more than five ghosts and a demon constantly harass them.

In a bizarre twist, FOX 43's Nick Petrillo claims he was scratched and felt his hand burning during just minutes into filming an interview with Deanna Simpson. 'Because you’re telling the story.

Sarahannelawless: True witches and shamans have familiar spirits – we just do – whether we like it or not. Totemism stems from Animism which every culture’s spiritual beliefs evolved from at some point in time. Animism is the belief that everything has a spirit and a consciousness — a soul– from the tiniest microorganism on earth to the planets in the heavens. Animists usually believe in rebirth & reincarnation either as another human, or an animal, tree, or star. Anything or one can be an ancestor and in a way this is true as even scientists will tell you every single thing in the Universe is created from the same dust resulting from the explosion of the “big bang”. Spirits of place (genus loci) are thought to be a soul who has come to reside in a hill, stream, or grove as its guardian and benefactor. Animism is usually viewed as more primitive with Polytheism being seen as more advanced (think Stone Age vs. the Roman Empire). But as many modern religious scholars have discovered there is more natural harmony and more earthly wisdom within animism than almost any other world religion. You can easily have one without the other, however, in some cultures the two did go hand in hand: the Norse had their pantheon as well as strong beliefs in land spirits and even the ancient Greeks had spirits of springs, rivers, hills, forests, etc which were worshipped almost at the same level of devotion if not more as their pantheon of deities with sacrifices, offerings and festivals in their honour. Anthropologists call these divisions the “low cult” (animism) and the “high cult” (polytheism)...read more>>>...
norse-mythology.org: The Norse god Odin is a relentless seeker after knowledge and wisdom, and is willing to sacrifice almost anything for this pursuit. The most outstanding feature of his appearance, his one eye, attests to this; he sacrificed his other eye for more wisdom. The tale of how he discovered the runes is another example of his unquenchable thirst for understanding the mysteries of life, not to mention his unstoppable will.
The runes are the written letters that were used by the Norse and other Germanic peoples before the adoption of the Latin alphabet in the later Middle Ages. Unlike the Latin alphabet, which is an essentially utilitarian script, the runes are symbols of some of the most powerful forces in the cosmos. In fact, the word “rune” and its cognates across past and present Germanic languages mean both “letter” and “secret/mystery.” The letters called “runes” allow one to access, interact with, and influence the world-shaping forces they symbolize. Thus, when Odin sought the runes, he wasn’t merely attempting to acquire a set of arbitrary representations of human vocal sounds. Rather, he was uncovering an extraordinarily potent system of magic...read more>>>...
Info Wars: As the Ebola outbreak continues to cause concern, President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of “respiratory illness.”
The amendment signed by Obama replaces subsection (b) of the original Bush executive order which referred only to SARS. Obama’s amendment allows for the detention of Americans who display, “Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.”...read more>>>...
OBOD: In ancient times a Druid was a philosopher, teacher, counsellor and magician, the word probably meaning ‘A Forest Sage’ or ‘Strong Seer’. In modern times, a Druid is someone who follows Druidry as their chosen spiritual path, or who has entered the Druid level of training in a Druid Order.
The reason we tend to visualise the Druid as an old man in our imagination is partly due, perhaps, to a realisation that by the time one has undertaken the training of Bard and Ovate one is bound to be ancient! We cannot be sure of the exact time it took, but Caesar mentions that some spent as long as twenty years in their education at Druid colleges. But this is really little different to the time young people now take to complete their education, and Caesar’s account is reminiscent of the situation of monastic schools in Europe and as far afield as Tibet, where young people would go or be sent for a complete education: free from the burden of taxation or military service and “instigated by such advantages, many resort to their school even of their own accord, whilst others are sent by their parents and relations.” Commentators point out that ‘twenty years’ could have been a figure of speech to denote a long duration of time, or that it might have actually been 19 years, since the Druids almost certainly used the Metonic Cycle, a method of reckoning based on the nineteen-year eclipse cycle...read more>>>...
Before Its News: In actuality, since the late 1980s, the U.S. has contributed to a secret Space Fleet, its program code-named “Solar Warden”, and which has now grown to eight cigar-shaped motherships (each longer than two football fields end-to-end) and 43 small “scout ships,” asserts Boylan. The Solar Warden Space Fleet operates under the US Naval Network and Space Operations Command (NNSOC) [formerly Naval Space Command], headquartered in Dahlgren, Virginia. There are approximately 300 personnel at NNSOC’s Dahlgren facility. The Solar Warden Space Fleet’s vessels are staffed by Naval Space Cadre officers, whose training has earned them the prestigious 6206-P Space Operations specialty designation, after they have graduated from advanced education at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and earned a Master of Science degree in Space Systems Operations, according to Dr. Boylan... read more>>>...
