Feng Shui Daily Tip

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Today's 'National Popcorn Day' celebrates one of the healthiest snack foods on earth. Actually corn, popped or not, has long played a pivotal role in the religious ceremonies of Central and North America cultures. The Mayan Civilization and the Native American Navajo believed that the first humans were actually created from corn. The Mayans, Incans, Aztecs and every almost every Native American Indian not only ate corn but also incorporated it into almost all of their religious rites. Blue corn is often considered to be the most sacred of all colored corn and is still the favored corn offering of all. And then there is this ritual from the Ozarks that has survived the ages intact. This tradition says that if you suffer from frequent bouts of hiccups then you should name three kernels of corn for three friends and put them into a container of water. Then, whenever you have an attack, hold this vessel above your head and the hiccups will disappear. Now you may find this advice hard to swallow but I am personally certain that it works.

How deliciously fun...I live in the desert...so if this printing holds water, our crops shall be abundant, our livestock shall thirst no more and our mountains will burst with sublime color.

Still wondering what happened to the daily astrology newsletter that hasn't come in my inbox in a few weeks now. Anyone else know what is going on with that? I miss my daily astrology for Virgo
