Medicine wheels, known also as sacred circles or sacred hoops, are monuments constructed by certain Native American cultures by laying stones in a particular pattern on the ground. The most basic pattern, which is followed by the majority of medicine wheels, consists of a center of stones, which is connected to an outer ring by ‘spokes’. Medicine wheels were, and still are, constructed for healing purposes. It may be mentioned that this ‘healing’ should be understood within the context of inner spiritual energy and enlightenment, rather than the taking of drugs or herbal remedies. Apart for that, such wheels are speculated to have been made for astronomical, ritual and teaching purposes as well.
The term ‘medicine wheel’ was not originally used by the Native Americans who made these monuments. Instead, this term was first used during the late 1800s / early 1900s by Americans of European descent to refer to the Bighorn Medicine Wheel, which is located near Sheridan, Wyoming. Similar monuments were later discovered, and the term ‘medicine wheel’ was used to describe them as well.

PLEASE TWEET FOLLOWING LINK TO THE UNITED NATIONS
Here is a tweet for the Secretary General of the United Nations:
For the Attention of António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations.
I would like to note the following:
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is a legally-binding international agreement setting out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of every child, regardless of their race, religion or abilities.
The UNCRC states that ‘Every child has the right to survival, protection, and education.
The Syrian Arab Republic became a member state of the United Nations on the 24th October 1945.
1.5 million children in Idlib Province in Syria are being deprived of these basic rights. Please explain to me in full as to why the UN is not taking any action to ensure that these children receive the rights that are outlined in the UNCRC.
In the name of humanity I demand that immediate action be taken to ensure the survival of these children!
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world in 1948.
This document recognises that the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people.
Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.
I would like it noted that there are 3.5 million people in Idlib Province Syria whose human rights as set out in the UDHR have been totally and utterly violated beyond all human comprehension!! I as a member of the human family demand that action be taken immediately to ensure that these people are given back their God given rights!!!
The world is watching and awaiting the long overdue humanitarian intervention of the UN in response to all that has been outlined above.
Dodola. ( CC BY SA )
Rituals honoring Dodola are usually performed by children and young girls, who adorn themselves with leaves and sing songs of invocation. They are sprayed with water, in hopes of summoning the rain and ensuring fertility of the land. This cult is connected with the earliest forms of earth fertility and the personification of rain.

Throughout the ancient history of the world, polytheism – commonly known as paganism or heathenism – was the defining aspect of all societies and civilizations. Our ancestors had complex and widespread beliefs that were closely related to their lives and the everyday occurrences around them. This was the belief in nature – in the yearly natural cycles, life and death, rain and sun, and above all fertility.
They personified these natural aspects and gave them names, imagined them as men and women – powerful deities that could be appeased to help with crops, childbirth, or victory in war. And today we are exploring perhaps the most common of these beliefs, a cult that was the central part of all pagan religions – fertility. And as nature intricately connects fertility with femininity, goddesses were revered. Today we are traveling to all corners of the world to seek out these loving mothers and lustful seductresses – from the European Germanic cults, to the distant and vicious South American deities, all the way to the natural and peaceful goddesses of Slavic myths.

The Secret Heartbeat
While a tree definitely doesn’t have a heart, the idea that they have their own beat and sense of rhythm isn’t as far fetched as many people think. According to a study which was headed by András Zlinszky, Bence Molnár and Anders S. Barfod from Hungary and Denmark, trees do in fact have a special type of beat within them which resembles that of a heartbeat. Who would have known?
To find this hidden heartbeat, the researchers used advanced monitoring techniques known as terrestrial laser scanning to survey the movement of twenty two different types of trees. The results shocked everyone and revealed that at night, while the trees were sleeping, they often had a beat pulsating throughout their body, just as humans, and other living creatures do too
It wasn’t just the heartbeat that the study discovered either, it also revealed that trees move quite a lot during the night, far more than people initially thought. As it turns out, a large number of species dropped their leaves down up to ten centimetres after the sun goes down. When trees do this, it’s actually because they’re sleeping (another human/animal trait), and they enter their own type of circadian rhythm known as ‘circadian leaf movements’, which is incredibly interesting to watch

Almost all of the music you hear on a day-to-day basis – whether in your car on the way to work or playing over the speakers at a local restaurant – is tuned to 440 Hz. It’s the international standard tuning and has been since the mid-1900s.
Yet, when we change our tuning for A to 432 Hz, though it’s only a difference of 8 cycles per second, there’s a noticeable shift in our consciousness and even our bodies.
In fact, a 2016 study by the American Society of Endodontists found that patients who listened to 432 Hz music before, during, and after root canal operations experienced less anxiety. And this soothing of the “nerves” led to an improvement in associated vital signs, including lower systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, and heart rate.
