Mandala is Sanskrit for “circle” or “completion”. It can also mean “Sacred Center” or “Essence container”.

Mandalas are closely associated with Hinduisum and Buddhism, where they are used extensively in rituals and as aids for meditation. Mandalas are two dimensional paintings/ drawings of a three dimensional sacred environment. Their uses include, creating a sacred space, helping to focus attention, and assisting in learning spiritual truths. Mandalas symbolise the cosmos, or the universe, and encourage the appreciation of all life as sacred. They represent the dwelling place of the Divine and of enlightened beings. Meditating on a mandala can help you to access progressively deeper levels of the unconscious, ultimately assisting you to experience a mystical sense of oneness with the cosmos or a higher being.

Because mandalas represent the presence of the sacred in everyday life, they can remind you of the sanctity of the universe and your potential for ongoing personal and spiritual development.


PlanetVenus Retrograde: December 22 to February 1.

Venus moves retrograde on December 22 in preparation for beginning a new Venus cycle when Venus conjuncts the Sun on January 11.


Whenever Venus is retrograde She is at her closet to Earth and undergoes the transition from Evening Star to Morning Star. If any of you have been watching Venus in the western sky at night you will notice Her sinking into the horizon and preparing to disappear around January 5 when She gets lost in the blaze of the Sun. She will reappear around January 19 as the Morning Star.



I have a list of people I know
All written in a book,
And every year at Christmas time
I go and take a look.
And that is when I realise
that those names are a part,
Not of the book with which they are written in,
But of my very heart.
For each name stands for someone
who has crossed my path sometime
And in that meeting they've become
a treasured friend of mine.
And once you've met some people
the years cannot erase,
The memory of a pleasant word
or of a friendly face,
So when i send this Christmas Card
That is addressed to you,
It's because you're on that list of
people I'm endebted to.
And you are one of many folk
who in times past I have met,
And happen to be one of those
whom I do not want to forget.
And whether I have known you for
many years or few.
In some way you have had a part
in shaping things I do.
This, The Spirit of Christmas that
forever and ever endures,
May it leave its richest blessings
in the heart of you and yours.

This food caused a 100% cancer rate

Several years ago when I was in my health insurance career, I knew a guy who was very helpful and friendly, but his diet made me cringe.

He lived on fast food and processed junk--burgers, fries, tacos, fried chicken, snack chips, you-name-it. He wouldn't know a fresh fruit or vegetable if it jumped up and bit him in the derriere.

His idea of a "home cooked meal" was popping a frozen pizza in the oven
