Fighting Aging Without Needles or SurgeryWritten by Victoria Shandra SImone
Continued from page 1
Why can’t we just have youthful looking skin without side effects? I am sure that there are teams of scientists out there somewhere that are developing such products but what about our needs today, right? Wouldn’t a cream be an absolutely divine alternative to surgery or repetitive needle treatments? Such alternatives do exist and they are out there! Aging need not be combated with costly invasive techniques nor side-effects tolerated! Science has heard our call ladies because new products have already been developed and are out there awaiting us if we are willing to seek them out!
Hecate is the Greek goddess of the crossroadsWritten by Judi Singleton
Continued from page 1
She is of great help if you are meditating on growing older and death or crossing over. Similarly, Hecate played a role that, in contemporary times, we would describe as a hospice worker helping elderly make a smooth and painless passage into next life and staying with them, if need be, in otherworld to help prepare them for their eventual return to earth in their next life. She then went with them as they were reborn. So this is reference to her being Goddess of birth and of death. Since she is protector of women more women used her powers in this regard then men. It is hardly surprizing that a woman who needed to make a trip alone at night would say a brief prayer to Hecate to seek her protection. She is protector of women. Hecate teaches us an important lesson, which is that feminine should be valued for itself, because deep within it there is an eternal wisdom. Hecate is also High Priestess, keeper of Mysteries. Hecate is not priestess who seeks inner knowledge, but High Priestess who has found it and imparts it to others. During Medieval times, pagans were being tortured based on their belief in Goddess. Patriarchy reigned and fear of feminine power caused Church to demonize Hecate. She was made infamous as crone; old, wrinkled, ugly, warts protruding from her nose and chin, mysterious, dark and loathsome. Many mistakenly call Her destroyer, but She is not for if you destroy something, that something is forever gone. She is not a destroyer in that sense she shows us how to let go and recreate ourselves, our dreams and our ideas. Pray to Hercate before you let go of past and as you start a new future. She will show you road to take so you do not have to retrace your steps.
