Little Shaman’s House Destroyed by a Tornado

received_696086150516663

On April 5th, 2017 a tornado destroyed our home. We were inside the home when this happened. We did not hear the tornado coming and we did not see it. My daughter suffered a lacerated spleen which resulted in an emergency operation to remove her spleen, as well as three broken ribs. Our son suffered a fractured elbow. We lost one of our dogs, and every single thing we own. We are so grateful that everyone is alive. If anyone is able to donate, even $1 helps. Please donate through Pay Pal to the email address cosmomorte@gmail.com or here: https://www.gofundme.com/daughters-home-destroyed-tornado

Thank you everybody and please be grateful every second of every day. It can be taken away from you in an instant.

Ask President Obama to Permanently Reject the Dakota Access Pipeline

Today marks a victory for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Water Protectors: “Shortly after federal Judge James Boasberg denied the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s request for an injunction against the Dakota Access oil pipeline, the U.S. Department of the Interior, Department of Justice and Army Corps of Engineers issued a joint statement that, in effect, temporarily halts all construction bordering Lake Oahe on the Missouri.” Read more.

This is great news but it’s only temporary! We need a permanent end to this pipeline.

She Divorced Me Because I Left Dishes by the Sink

Must Be This Tall To Ride

(Image/jerrywilliamsmedia.com) (Image/jerrywilliamsmedia.com)

It seems so unreasonable when you put it that way: My wife left me because sometimes I leave dishes by the sink.

It makes her seem ridiculous; and makes me seem like a victim of unfair expectations.

We like to point fingers at other things to explain why something went wrong, like when Biff Tannen crashed George McFly’s car and spilled beer on his clothes, but it was all George’s fault for not telling him the car had a blind spot.

This bad thing happened because of this, that, and the other thing. Not because of anything I did!

Sometimes I leave used drinking glasses by the kitchen sink, just inches away from the dishwasher.

It isn’t a big deal to me now. It wasn’t a big deal to me when I was married. But it WAS a big deal to her.

Every time she’d walk into the kitchen…

The Wind & The Sun

The Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger. Suddenly they saw a traveller coming down the road, and the Sun said: “I see a way to decide our dispute. Whichever of us can cause that traveller to take off his cloak shall be regarded as the stronger. You begin.” So the Sun retired behind a cloud, and the Wind began to blow as hard as it could upon the traveller. But the harder he blew the more closely did the traveller wrap his cloak round him, till at last the Wind had to give up in despair. Then the Sun came out and shone in all his glory upon the traveller, who soon found it too hot to walk with his cloak on.

Understanding Reflexology

reflexology

What is reflexology? 

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress. The Reflexology Association of Canada defines reflexology as:

“A natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet, hands and ears and their referral areas within zone related areas, which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, creams or lotions, the feet being the primary area of application, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.”

How does reflexology work?

The theory behind reflexology is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. Proponents believe that pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health.

Reflexologists use foot charts to guide them as they apply pressure to specific areas. Sometimes these practitioners use tools, such as rubber balls, rubber bands and sticks of wood, to assist in their work. Practitioners of reflexology include chiropractors, physical therapists and massage therapists, among others.

Does reflexology work?

Several studies funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.
