Yemaya, The Mother of Earth
By Yamaya Cruz, 2011 [Edited]
Humanity started in Africa. Everyone human being can trace his or her lineage back to our mitochondria mother in Africa. This mitochondria mother is known as Yemaya in Santeria. She is known as Yemoja in Yoruba. She is also known as Yemanja in Brazil. She is known all over the world.
There are thousands of stories, great myths, and legends about the African goddess. In Yoruba, she was known as the river goddess. She became the Yoruba deity of the ocean during the enslavement of Africans after the Mid Atlanticcrossing. Millions of enslaved Africans appealed to her for guidance and support. Thus, she became the Orisha who presided over the oceans.
Yemaya can also be associated with Our Lady of Regla in Santeria. She is linked to the second chakra or swadhisthana chakra in Sanskrit. The 2nd chakra is located in the womb area and is a vessel for creativity [creation and protection of the hero]. Yemaya presides over the womb and is called upon for maternity purposes, or to help aid mothers while giving birth. She helps mothers give birth, not only to children, but also to new ideas, opportunities, and beliefs. Yemaya is the divinity of creation itself. Continue reading
Thought Field Therapy (TFT)
From Depression Guide
Thought Field Therapy (TFT) is a alternative and currently non-validated psychotherapy treatment. The procedure is claimed to work by tapping various parts of the body in order to rebalance its natural energy system. The tapping is thought to correct “perturbations” in the energy fields, called thought fields, that cause psychological disturbances. Different “algorithms” or tapping sequences are employed by the therapist to treat different problems. Once these energy disturbances are corrected, it is claimed that the psychological problem will dissipate.
According to TFT, neither a traumatic event nor the person’s thoughts about that event are the Continue reading
Thought Field Therapy
Thought Field Therapy, or TFT, is a fringe psychological treatment developed by an American psychologist, Roger Callahan. Its proponents say that it can heal a variety of mental and physical ailments through specialized “tapping” with the fingers at meridian points on the upper body and hands. There is no scientific evidence that TFT is effective, and the American Psychological Association has stated that it “lacks a scientific basis.”
Theory and treatment
Callahan terms his treatment “Thought Field Therapy” because he theorizes that when a person thinks about an experience or thought associated with an emotional problem, they are tuning into a “thought field.” He Continue reading

Black Panther (Totem)
Medicine: – Astral travel – Guardian energy – Symbol of the feminine – Understanding of death – Reclaiming ones power – Ability to know the dark – Death and rebirth
The panther is a very powerful and ancient totem. It is generally associated with a particular species of leopard or jaguar although the cougar is also referred to as panther.

In the case of the Black Panther, there is definitely a lunar significance. The panther has over 500 voluntary muscles that they can use at will.

It is simply a matter of deciding and putting to use those particular “muscles” – be they physical, mental, psychic, or spiritual. Continue reading

The chakras in your hands are directly related to Continue reading
