From my understanding, we all have access to the divine realm of spiritual guidance or spirit guides, to assist us on our Journeys through life. I believe that there is more to us than our physical, visible bodies.
We are made up of matter, as are non-living materials. At our smallest unit, commonly agreed upon, we are made up of atoms. But atoms themselves are made up of electrons, protons and neutrons, which themselves are composed of space and light.
Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt has made a decision that will have a huge impact on life on Earth. He approved Adani’s giant Carmichael Coal Mine – a move that blows apart global efforts to cut pollution and threatens life locally and globally.
Mr Hunt on Thursday said the Carmichael coal mine n the Galilee Basin in remote central Queensland, proposed by Indian mining giant Adani, has been given the green light after the Federal Court in August set aside the previous approval. The Mackay Conservation Group launched its Federal Court challenge in January, alleging greenhouse gas emissions from the mine and vulnerable species like the ornamental snake and the yakkaskink, as well as Adani’s environmental track record had not been taken into account.
The project, which will produce up to 60 million tonnes of coal for export a year, has faced staunch opposition because its Abbot Point terminals are located close to the Great Barrier Reef.
National Australia Bank has said it will not fund the mine and other banks are being pressured to follow suit.
PLEASE READ ABOUT THIS ISSUE & TAKE ACTION NOWWWW !!!!!
THE UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE COMMISSION HAS PUT AUSTRALIA ON NOTICE
AUSTRALIA MUST HONOR ITS CARE-TAKING OF OUR GREAT BARRIER REEF – SEE HERE
The Screws are being tightened – there is even an under-hand un-ethical movement to stop opposition to these hugely monied and vested ventures.
Environment groups will be forbidden from challenging large developments in court as the Abbott government responds to the controversial decision that stopped Australia’s largest coal project – Adani’s Carmichael coal mine – in its tracks.
Attorney-General George Brandis will move to repeal a section of Australia’s environment laws that allows conservationists to challenge environment approvals for mining projects and other large developments.
The ACF ( Australian Conservation Foundation ) says it’s senseless to prop up a dirty, dying industry while the rest of Australia and the world races to a future powered by clean energy. South Australia and the ACT are leading the country on clean energy. Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide are racing to cut pollution. Even regional towns like Lismore are racing ahead with a goal of 100 percent clean energy in 10 years.
Poll after poll shows Australians want clean air and water, a healthy Reef and a future powered by sun, wind and waves.
And countries around the world, from China, to the Netherlands to the USA all the way to Costa Rica are taking great leaps to leave the dirty energy of the past behind and embrace the clean energy of the future.
If this mine goes ahead, this one mine will add more pollution to global warming than the whole of New Zealand,drain billions of litres of precious groundwater,irreversibly damage our Reefand drive threatened wildlife further towards extinction, without the informed consent of the Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners.
As world leaders meet in Paris for the United Nations climate summit, in November we, the people, will gather in Australian cities and across the world to call for action. We will march alongside millions of people in hundreds of major cities around the world.
Sign the Pledge below, to march and have your voice heard. Write / Lobby to stop the Adani coal mine.

Update about the Photo below – it appears widely on the internet and please note that I never said it was real and I never lied, and never said the Greeks named it but that the lion reference was associated with the Greeks. Apologies to Frank whom we received a Comment from and posted below the photo, and have obviously angered. Please note everyone, just because I have my own viewpoints on my connections with animals doesn’t mean I am out of touch with reality or am a nut-case. Look toward yourself first if you want to find fault.
A Comment from a disgruntled reader
( when readers are unhappy they are sure to let you know)
From your July 2012 post. The second picture ‘beautiful chameleon’ is a juvenile Chamaeleo calyptratus, commonly called a veiled chameleon. The coloration is absurdly altered and does not exist in nature. Why would you alter the natural beauty of this being? It is out of touch w/ natural beauty and reality, as I suspect you are. You do the world a dis-service when you lie to make a point. The world is a wonderful and beautiful place w/o having to lie. By the way, it was English speaking scientist using Greek names that called the Chameleon the ‘Lion on the Ground’, not the Greeks themselves. Frank
Did you know that the name of these special lizards is translated as “the lion on the ground” as it seems that Greeks deemed something of a lion in them. By looking in the dictionary you will see that this word is associated not only with this wonderful lizard but also with humans and their sometimes inconstant behavior. Last night as I was dropping off to sleep, I could see a very clear and large image of a green and spotted Chameleon, just like the photo of the panther chameleon above. This image was so bright and clear and unexpected, that I knew it must be a visit from the Chameleon spirit, bestowing the “medicine” or wisdom of the Chameleon upon me. Linsdomain says the following about the Chameleon as a totem. Read more…
3 February 2013. Please also see this post here which I have just added about finding your Animal Totems.
My inner animal totem is the Buffalo. In 2009 I participated in a workshop on Animal Telepathic Communication and went in a wonderful Medicine Wheel ceremony where I lay on the ground in one quadrant of the medicine wheel with people drumming and dancing around the wheel and the “shaman” chanting in the circle. I felt a big crowd of animals all gather around me to say “hello” and I saw a group of buffalo and I put my consciousness into one of the buffalo and felt what it was like to run wild and free as a Buffalo. The Buffalo symbol is often the inner symbol of people whom find all Life as sacred.
Animal Totems or Power animals are spirit guides in animal form. They are allies who can help steer us through life’s challenges and obstacles, if we recognise their existence and let their gentle subtle guidance steer or inspire us. In the traditional Native American Indian system, there are animal spirit guides in 9 directions around and below and above you. These nine animal spirits are with you throughout your entire incarnation / Life-time.

The term “horsepower” has its origins in the days when horses were integral to the successful activities of human beings.
Horsepower is defined as work done over time. The exact definition of one horsepower is 33,000 lb.ft./minute. Put another way, if you were to lift 33,000 pounds ( or 14,968 kilogram) one foot over a period of one minute, you would have been working at the rate of one horsepower. In this case, you’d have expended one horsepower-minute of energy.
Compared to one horsepower, my physical effort is very feeble. I can pick up a box weighing 15 kg from the ground and raise it two feet off the ground in a second or two. Multipy that out to cover 60 seconds, and it means perhaps something like 900 kg one foot or more over one minute. In other words, if I am interpreting things correctly, my work capacity is 6 percent ( 900 divided by 14,968 ) of what one horse can do, in the example pictured below.
Hounds are basically killing machines, so the huntsman doesn’t have to say ‘go and kill that fox’. They find the fox by scent, and they kill it, and they’re not breaking the law because they haven’t been told to.
How ridiculous is this? How illogical and sad too, it’s like saying “Guns kill people, not the person pulling the trigger”. Fox hunting has been a British rural tradition for five centuries—but for the last 12 years, the huntsman’s adversary hasn’t been a furry fox, but a fuzzy law.
Foxhunts kill foxes in one of two ways: by being chased until they went to ground, after which they were dug out with terriers. This was particularly cruel; the underground battles between terrier and fox could be protracted, with extreme digs lasting many hours or days, and severe injuries were often inflicted on both animals. The rest of the foxes were caught above ground by the hounds. There is a myth that, once caught, the hounds killed the fox by a quick nip to the back of the neck: this is not true. Dogs kill larger prey by repeatedly biting it until the animal is disembowelled or dies from its injuries. A pack of dogs normally tears smaller prey apart. Being torn apart by a pack of hounds was probably fairly quick, although if the fox was caught by just one or two hounds death was generally slower. Also, since the fox is often chased to the point of exhaustion, there is cruelty in the chase itself, particularly as the fox started to tire.
Fox hunting has been occurring in different guises worldwide for hundreds of years. Indeed the practice of using dogs with a keen sense of smell to track prey has been traced back to ancient Egypt and many Greek and Roman influenced countries. However it is believed that the custom for a fox to be tracked, chased and often killed by trained hunting hounds (generally those with the keenest sense of smell known as ‘scent hounds’) and followed by the Master of the Foxhounds and his team on foot and horseback, originated from a Norfolk farmer’s attempt to catch a fox using farm dogs in 1534.
Whilst foxes were widely regarded as vermin and farmers and other landowners had hunted the animals for many years as a form of pest control (both to curb their attacks on farm animals and for their highly prized fur) it wasn’t until the eighteenth century that fox hunting developed into it’s most modern incarnation and was considered a sport in its own right as a result of the decline in the UK’s deer population.
These days however, foxhunting in the UK is much better known for the controversial views of those who champion the sport and those that oppose it. The Hunting Act 2004, passed in November 2004, saw the outlawing of any hunting with dogs in England and Wales from 18 February 2005 (the Scottish Parliament had already banned foxhunting in Scotland in 2002 and in Northern Ireland the sport is still legal).
But while the act banned fox hunting, it continues to permit trail hunting which is an adapted version of the sport. It involves the use of an artificially laid scent, usually fox, hare or rabbit based, to provide hounds with a path to follow. In theory it avoids the suffering and killing of foxes, but campaigners argue that the trail hunts often end with the dogs coming across foxes – participants say by accident – and that animals are still being killed.
Also, exemptions are complex and numerous. It allows the use of two dogs to flush out mammals for the protection of livestock, game birds, wild birds, timber, property, and biodiversity, or for meat.
Today 28 May 2017 around 150 foot followers joined more than 70 mounted riders at the Swangrove Estate near Badminton, South Gloucestershire, for the first gathering of the Beaufort Hunt, an event which sometimes includes Prince Charles and Prince William. Up to 30 of Britain’s 300 hunts have been granted licences, and hunts were also resuming today in counties including north Wales and Northamptonshire, according to the Countryside Alliance’s Campaign
The joint master of the Beaufort Hunt, Ian Farquhar has said banning hunting has caused hardship because the industry supporting the hunt (like manufacture of hunting boots) has been brought to a stand-still.
Foxes may be pests in some places but can be culled humanely, not by being torn apart. How would you like to be a Fox terrified for its life and torn from limb to limb????
Fox hunting is a hot election issue in the United Kingdom, with the incumbent Conservative Party—widely expected to hold on to power—promising a vote in Parliament that could overturn the current ban. There have been 431 convictions under the 2004 Hunting Act. The vast majority of convictions have been against individuals, say hunt supporters, noting that by 2015 only nine members of traditional organized hunts had been convicted.
Theresa May wants to bring back Fox-hunting with dogs.
NOTE:this post is obviously about FOXES so there’s no need for cantankerous people reading this to Comment and say “What about the bunny rabbits?” or “There are quite enough Foxes around, so who will miss a few.” What if you were reincarnated as a Fox and chased and torn apart by dogs? If you’ve got a brain you will know this Post is about deliberately killing a FOX in a horrific fashion.

Maureen Moss says that “A beautiful portrayal of Virgo’s Divine maternal quality can be seen in the Praying Mantis, whose form actually resembles the shape outlined by the stars of the constellation Virgo.”
Wow, I am quadruple Virgo – the Sun, Uranus, Venus & Pluto in Virgo, with Scorpio rising!
A week ago on Saturday 30 May, Praying Mantis had my back – literally.
If the Praying Mantis comes into your life, the wisdom of this animal totem can be” be calm & peaceful“.
You need to calm yourself down, take it easy, and just blend in with your circumstances.
