This Month’s Recommended Merlian News Articles:
Revisiting the Seth Material
Reading the Seth Material was life changing for me!! In the mid ’80s. my mother and I had been experiencing many of the same phenomena our whole lives. Someone recommended that I investigate Jane Roberts’ story of channeling material and I devoured that first book in one sitting. The Seth Material validated everything that had happened to me over the years and opened up the way I perceived the universe.

To March or Not to March: When Science Gets Political
Data is data, science is objective, and the facts should speak for themselves, right? The answer is… complicated. The choice of what to study can be very subjective, constrained by preconceived ideas, and driven by special interest groups, or funding, (often the same thing). Data has always been open to interpretation, and – even before Kellyanne Conway coined the phrase – “the facts” were sometimes ignored in favor of “alternative facts.” But what’s scaring some scientists now is the anti-science, climate change denying stance of the Trump administration, and the fact that data is disappearing.

The Benefits of Stinging Nettles
Used since ancient times, stinging nettles are used to thin and purify the blood, to relieve chest congestion, as a diuretic, and to stimulate the digestive system. It has been used to treat respiratory issues such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and allergies. It is very popular in Europe as an alternative treatment for prostate issues and prostate cancer. Used topically, a poultice or wash with the leaves is thought to help rheumatism, soften hair, clear up acne, and aid in burn and rash relief.
Deep Awake is a wonderful addition to the fields of consciousness and spirituality. The author, Tim Freke, has put together a deceptively simple guide for “waking up” and living consciously. Unlike most of the genre, the ego, with all its strengths and weaknesses, is not vilified, but embraced. For those who have failed at prior efforts to meditate and reflect, this unique approach may help them to succeed.
As reported in The Huffington Post and USA Today, last month Las Vegas became the latest U.S city to complete the switch over to solar power for its municipal buildings. Now that the final array of solar panels has gone online, Las Vegas can brag that all of the city buildings, parks, community centers and street lights are powered by renewable energy. At a news conference following the completion, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said proudly, “We can brag that the city, this city of Las Vegas, is one of the few cities in the entire world that can boast using all of its power from a green source.”
