It looks good, but who made it?

Mary sent me a series of “Listen” messages. All of the messages boil down to “Listen to what makes sense”. Our last post talked about how if a credit card company is trying to tell you that you should use your credit card to make small purchases you should listen to your heart…does it make sense to do so? Of course not…there’s a cost involved and we all end up paying for it.

Her next message is about the things that we eat. Does it make sense to eat food that has been altered genetically? Personally I’d prefer to eat what nature originally provided…before we decided to play with Mother Nature.

Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) kind of scare me. Do we really need to eat a green pepper the size of a football helmet? If we do here’s an idea…just buy two normal sized peppers. Our food doesn’t need to be modified…it’s not natural.

GMO’s are scary enough, but the thing that is even more frightening is that some GMO’s seem to be backfiring. I recently heard a report where by GMO corn in the US that was designed to resist rootworm has actually caused the rootworm to evolve. The rootworms are now digging in and flourishing. Farmers in Indiana, Illinois and across the U.S. Midwest are now looking to insecticides to protect their crops. Now we have genetically modified food treated with insecticide…even more toxins.

That was just one example…what other GMO’s products are failing? What are the long term effects? How deep does it all go? Most of us just don’t know, meanwhile the government keeps passing laws that approve the integration of GMO’s into our food supply. We don’t even have a say in the matter.

Mary is asking us to do our own research…and look into your heart to help guide you. Listen for what is going on in your own part of the world…vote with your wallet and do your best to buy healthy food products. Contact your local government officials and let them know how you feel about GMO’s….eventually they will get the message…educate your friends and families…they might be completely unaware…the more people know the more impact we will have.

…continue to love yourself by keeping yourself healthy….and this is according to Mary!

Say NO to GMO

My latest vision was that of an eye.  The message Mary sent was that as humans we see what we want to see and often don’t see the truth.  We are very busy living our lives, being distracted by the waves of media and marketing that surround us and distract up, on a daily basis.  Letting others influence us because we are caught up in the latest movement or fad, without even questioning what is right.

We are so exhausted trying to fit into the norms of society, that challenging or even researching the things that impact our health and impact our sustainability here on earth are not even a consideration.  The decisions being made by governments tend to benefit corporations, or those in power, or the lobby groups… really anyone but the people who really need help…and that is most of us.

As painful as it might be we need to wake up and question what is going on around us.  We need to dig deeper and start researching the truth.  Take GMO’s for example.  What are we really being fed?  I mean that from both the “What are we eating?” and “What information are we being fed?” point of view. Genetically Modified Organisms…What is the real impact? They just haven’t been studied long enough.  Isn’t it your right to know what you are eating?  Doesn’t your health depend on it?  Do we really want to trust the corporations, who are out to make a profit at any expense (in my opinion)?

I think California has it right.  They are not blindly letting it happen.  They are trying to inform their citizens.

Love yourself, love your body, love your health…use your mind!  And this is according to Mary!
