Each year we, the Dreamwalker Household plant our Allotment with a selection of Vegetables. On the right you see the beginnings of Life. On Sunday I planted Sweet-corn, Runner Beans, Cauliflower, Cabbage, and Sprouts, and Broccoli etc. A higgledy mess at the moment in our Green house.
I am going to open up a Fresh Page called GROWING YOUR OWN. Where I hope to show the progress through out this year of our Vegetable patch in the Allotments..
Allotments are very popular here, with people who want to grow their own crops, and for those of you who have grown your own, you understand why.They taste as vegetables should taste, and you know that they haven’t been covered in herbicides. Where I live the allotments are only a few minutes walk away, The land was donated by the Duke of Portland who designated it as Freehold for the use of Allotments Gardens for the common man a couple of generations ago now.
Why am I starting a Page about Vegetable growing? We as a family have grown our own for a number of years since our children were small, and love our fresh vegetables and fruits such as strawberries, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Gooseberries and lots of Blackberries.. I Feel now as we are heading into our Earth Changes at speed, its important for others to start and understand how fragile our economy is, and how we can soon get caught out when things start to crumble..
We only need but see how people panic buy when the shops close for a couple of days, and while I do not wish this post to sound negative, We have all of us got to open up our eyes more to what is taking place around this world, as the huge corporations take over crippling our rights to grow our own Food. As they( genetically modify , part 1) (for part 2 & 3 click links 2 and Links 3 of this story of GM Products, you will be amazed and concerned at the findings by scientists as animals die, Cancers are detected and Allergies occur as authorities condone and endorse these products where testing has been proven to be inadequate in Soya Modified crops. )
For those who have heard of Findhorn Foundation in Scotland you can see how from one persons Vision a whole community and way of life was born, around sustaining themselves and eco living. It now has one of the lowest ecological footprints in the developed world and it has also gained United Nations recognition, also seeding other communities around the world as a founder member of the Global Eco-village Network.
The reason I want you to explore Findhorn is that it is also a centre for Holistic Learning, which each year attracts Students and Seekers from around our World.~I need you to start and think again outside your boxes, As we go through our Earth changes there will come a time when our electronic systems will be of little use.. and for those who may laugh and scoff, while I wouldn’t want to have the last laugh, I would want to think I was in some way prepared!.. You need to start and rely upon your intuition more as we open up our Hearts Centres we will see communities needing to pull together once more.. We have only just begun to see the changes taking place.. As our Weather patterns alter and our Earth starts to shake us up to some truths..
The media are not informing us of the consequences of the Suns solar flares, or the probable volcanic eruptions which are starting now to accelerate at an alarming rate around our world. Nor are they telling us of the Military manoeuvres in the Middle East.. But again I ask you to look outside your boxes and inform yourselves, Do not ever take my word on any thing.. Question and seek your own answers..
This post while I want it to remain as positive as it can be, I also think its time now to Wake up to the many destructive forces taking place around our world.. Which many have their eyes closed to.
I remember only in March 2010 when the Iceland volcano (Eyjafjallajökull) erupted spewing larva and ash into the air how it grounded planes.. It wasn’t long before the Fresh Vegetables and Fruits dried up in our Supermarkets as no imports were getting in from abroad via plane.. The knock on effects do not take long to overspill to the consumer who as we have only just seen here in the UK react in mad panic when told there is going to be a shortage as we have just witnessed with the Mad dash to fill up our Cars with Petrol, which all stemmed from an official government rumour.
So as I am always asking you to open your hearts and give of yourselves, as I ask you to promote positivity and kindness which brings our communities together..I am also asking you to start and think about our modern day resources and how you would perhaps cope if suddenly you didn’t have them at your finger tips?
Getting in touch with Nature, just planting a few flower seeds is a start.. We have to start and look at the teachings of our Native American Indian Brothers once again as we connect back to Mother Earth helping her and ourselves to heal..
So I will leave you with this quote..
Lakota Instructions for Living
Friend do it this way – that is,
whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can
with both your heart and mind.
And if you do it that way,
the Power Of The Universe
will come to your assistance,
if your heart and mind are in Unity.
When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible because
All of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the honor of one is the honor of all.
And whatever we do effects everything in the universe.
If you do it that way – that is,
if you truly join your heart and mind
as One – whatever you ask for,
that’s the Way It’s Going To Be.
