Phoenix Voyage is a project that unites people in their effort to make changes and helps to create a truly working mechanism that aims to overcome world crises in all possible spheres of our life. It has long been known that to attract attention to the problem, it is necessary to stir up interest in it, to motivate people thus galvanizing them into action. I think Phoenix Voyage copes with this problem in the most perfect and amazing way!
Phoenix Voyage Mascot eBook “Meet the Voyagers” is a great part of this project. Though it is aimed at kids, I also think it is aimed at the kid in everybody! This is fun for the whole family, indeed.
My niece was so impressed with the book (and so was I, by the way). She really wanted to spend more time with her favorite character, Giorgio, the painter, since she is so fond of painting herself! Thankfully, there were plenty of different related activities on the Phoenix Voyage project site: additional information on mascots, cool facts and quizzes, and our favorites - printable voyager puzzles of all kinds!
I would highly recommend this book to everyone; it is funny, but also highly thought provoking and really useful.

Many centuries of experimentation by many cultures, for example Indian herbal medicine (Ayurvedic), Chinese herbal medicine, and western herbal medicine have created many uses for plants either singularly or in compounds, and sometimes animal by products to prevent and treat various conditions and illnesses.
A natural remedy can be anything from tea, to complex preparations of herbal compounds used in hospitals and clinics. These formulas come in many forms such as capsules, pills, ointments, and gels.
You may be using some of the common herbs as a food in your home such as:
* Garlic--natural antibiotic and helps reduce cholesterol
* Cinnamon--lowers blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides
* Ginger--prevents motion sickness and lowers risk of blood clots
* Chamomile Tea--calms nerves and help relieve digestive problems
* Peppermint--Treats many digestion and gastrointestinal problems
These common herbs may be mixed with other proven natural products to achieve a particular result.
Traditional medicine is very useful for diagnosis, emergencies, trauma and surgery, but often does not cut it for preventing disease from occurring. The time and wait needed to visit a doctor to get a prescription, and the ever growing cost of medicine is allowing an opportunity for many people to try to get help from natural products.
Many traditional medicines are showing many adverse side effects. Natural, is not necessarily safe, and may have unwanted side effects just as with conventional medicines, however a large ever growing number of the population has been using herbals, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids for many years with very favorable results and no adverse effects.
Natural herbal products are now available for use by adults, children, and pets to remedy countless conditions from Angina and Arthritis, to skin care remedies, thyroid treatment, urinary tract infection and an unlimited number of other disorders.
Many new products have been compounded to remedy conditions other then disease, such as smoking cessation, removing unwanted hair, eliminating wrinkles and many other conditions.
One of the many natural herbal remedies could be your answer.

Responsible for the production of melatonin, a hormone which influences the quality of our wake/sleep cycles our and daily and seasonal circadian rhythms (our body clock), this small gland determines how we deal with stress, depression/mood and effects our energy levels regarding physical activity.
However, it is not only modern science that has a school of thought on the purpose and function of this tiny gland situated in the human brain. Scratch the surface just a little, and you will find that for centuries the pineal gland has been contemplated by some of history’s greatest philosophers.
There may be many different philosophical and religious perspectives from the likes of Plato, Shiva, Jesus, Buddha, Descartes and Novalis but they all drew the same correlation, that the pineal gland is the ‘mind’s eye’, our ‘third eye’, our ‘all seeing eye’ and the seat of the soul, defining it as our connection between the physical and the spiritual or, the point where our inner world and outer world meet.
These abstract thoughts about our existence are explained by modern science in their recognition of the function of the pineal, but not just in the function of secreting the important ‘happy’ hormone melatonin, but more recently, in the confident belief, that the pineal gland releases a neurotransmitter called DMT – dimethyltryptamine – a natural hallucinogenic plant chemical used in shamanic and other tribal ritualistic ceremonies which enables us to expand our consciousness and see a wider reality within an induced state.
But what if we could reach this heightened level of consciousness without having to ingest plant DMT and why, if the pineal gland naturally releases DMT, are we experiencing a spiritual disconnection on a global level?
As the human race has evolved, we have created and exposed ourselves to chemicals and toxins; these we know are not beneficial to our physical health and wellbeing and, in most cases we can choose and make our own decision to try and avoid them. However, there is one substance that is especially harmful to the pineal gland which up until recently, we were not given any choice about whatsoever.
On a spiritual level, the hard shell that forms around the pineal gland effectively cuts off the ability to access our higher consciousness. There are many schools of thought who passionately believe that the addition of fluoride into our public water supplies, toothpastes and oral rinses was a deliberate act to try and control the masses, and that by secretly deactivating our pineal gland with fluoride, our search for God or higher consciousness could be continued through ‘controlled gateways’ like the church, disallowing us the ability to connect on a more powerful and personal level due to ‘brain lockdown’.
It seems that individual cities are starting to heed the concerns of their citizens but it has been an uphill struggle for a major victory at national level. Fluoridation, Americans are advised, is necessary for the prevention of tooth decay. However, a lawsuit has been filed with damming evidence from Doctors and Scientists which, for the first time in US history, is forcing the courts to review fluoride toxicity and demanding an end to this practice, a practice which is harmful to a nation and poisoning the very substance that we cannot be without…water.
Certain foods will also help to decalcify the pineal gland. Foods that are high in minerals, vitamins and amino acids such as Iodine, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Potassium Irons, Tryptophan, Lutein and Oleic acid will all aid the decalcification process. These are the critical nutrients important for optimum functioning of the pineal gland and if we try to be consistent and buy organic and non GMO produce as they are less toxic in general for overall health we will really be giving our pineal gland the goodness it deserves.
Another important factor is sunlight, exposure to which really helps to kick start the pineal gland and prompts it to produce serotonin, the daytime neurotransmitter for mood and energy levels. Melatonin, the night time hormone secreted by the pineal gland, is important for suppressing serotonin, a necessity for our wake/sleep cycle.
As we begin to shift the focus to this tiny gland and start breaking it free from the toxins that have engulfed it we will begin to understand its benefits. We will start to perceive the ‘truth’ that surrounds us. That the world we live is full of control and in-equalities and out of harmony with the rest of the universe and the connection to all that is around us in nature will naturally feel deeper and more purposeful.

Even though brain cancer was just the tip of the iceberg, the manipulation of flawed research studies, both in humans and animals around the early and mid-1970’s allowed Aspartame to slip under the radar and has been poisoning people ever since.
With over 10,000 products worldwide containing this highly toxic chemical, evidence has proved that Aspartame is the probable causing factor in the increase of most neurological disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Grand Mal Seizures, Brain Tumors, Cancers and many more disorders of the body’s nervous system since it’s allowed usage from 1983 and, is responsible for over 75% of cases recorded as an ‘adverse reaction to food’ which are reported to the FDA on a regular basis.
A documentary released in 2006; ‘Aspartame Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World’ by Cori Brackett, who herself was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2002, highlights how this artificial sweetener has been allowed to seep into over 10,000 food products with little consequence of the damage it is doing to people. With testimonials from those whose lives have been drastically affected by this ‘approved product’ and open and honest interviews with several Dr.’s and researchers who fully believe the product is poison, it beggars’ belief that it is still being marketed as ‘legally safe to use’, when in actual fact it is silently killing us. In Cori’s case, in the search for her own truth, she got better after researching and cutting aspartame from her diet.
At one point in the documentary Cori interviews Diane Fleming, convicted of murdering her husband who died of a brain bleed due to methanol poisoning, methanol is one of the chemical compounds in aspartame and is particularly nasty as it is turned into formaldehyde, basically an embalming fluid, as the body tries to metabolize it. She currently is serving a 50 year sentence for 1st degree murder and ‘adulteration of a substance’. Her story is just one of many.
It would seem that for political and financial reasons, aspartame has been given full approval and complicity to damage our health and lives. Whilst it still continues to be legitimately marketed as a healthy alternative to sugar in disorders like obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease the only ‘sweet’ thing this product is responsible for… is lining the pockets of those who manufacture it. There is also undisputed evidence to show the aspartame causes carbohydrate cravings and weight gain…..
If the governing agencies, whose role is to protect are failing to do so, we must be more aware of what is going into our food, always read the labels. We are responsible for what we put into our mouths, it might take a little extra effort to put our foot down with products like aspartame, but the positive far outweighs the negative. Choosing natural over artificial is the healthier option any day. There are many alternatives to sweeteners, try raw honey, syrup, fruits, nuts and full fat natural yogurts.
Try making homemade foods, I personally find cooking quite meditative it’s my part of the day where I can ‘switch off’ and produce a yummy homemade healthy meal.
If you are struggling to get inspired, a good dietician will help to educate in swapping unhealthy food habits for healthier options.
If you want more information on the dangers of aspartame I have shared some links including the link for Cori’s documentary. That for me was a real eye-opener and just the nudge needed to take more control over my health.

Between lessons, children dance and play and humorously overfill the seesaws as they eagerly await their next lesson for the day and the endless delight that comes with it, not a frown among them and an overabundance of joy and happiness being shared by all.
Although the Little Eagles Primary School is doing wonderful things, they are not without the need for help. They currently lack many things that are essential to the children's education, as well as the sustainability of the school itself.
