Our Hearts are in Victoria, Australia

We are sending a call out to all Reiki healers, Wiccans, Druids Pagans, Christians, Hindus, Muslims etc. to send healing energy and prayers to the folks in Australia for strength, wisdom and healing. Some of you may remember the amazing concert we had at the Cedar Cultural Center last spring featuring Wendy Rule. It was Wendy first visit to our area, from her home in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. She remarked about the amazing amount of lakes and rivers here in our town, and compared it to the terrain in her own home. If you’ve read her MySpace Blog, she’s often written about her love for the amazing natural landscape that surrounds Melbourne, and her connection to the land there.

Last Friday, Wendy released her new album in Melbourne. But, this weekend, that celebration was overtaken by grim news as the brush fires raged around the city, and many are still uncontrollable. Over a hundred people have died, thousands are injured, and over 700 homes have been lost to the fire. The landscape as well, looks more like a moonscape in some of the pictures I’ve seen. The entire thing is heart-rending and knowing that some of the fires may have been arson is staggering. If we could, we would ship some of this wet, cold Minnesota weather down there, to dowse the fires, but for now, we just send all our prayers and healing energies.

Eye of Horus Supports Environmental Amendment

Normally, as a retail store, we aren’t very keen on sales tax increases. But we are not blind to the needs of the environment, and, just like our other environmental commitments of having a wind-powered store, carbon neutral website, and tree planting program, we think every little bit helps. So we are supporting this amendment because the need is so great.

The Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment will appear this way on your 2008 election ballot: [Read more…]
