Open Sesame! 10 Amazing Health Benefits Of This Super-Seed

Open Sesame! 10 Amazing Health Benefits Of This Super-Seed

Given the growing body of scientific support on its health benefits, sesame would be just as at home in a medicine cabinet as it would be a kitchen cupboard.

Sesame (Sesamum indicum) is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world, prized as an oilseed for at least 5,000 years. While it is beginning to regain favor due to its exceptionally high calcium and magnesium content, few realize it is also one of the most potent medicinal foods still commonly consumed today.

In fact, its history as a medicine goes back 3600 years to Egyptian times where it was listed in the scrolls of the Ebers as a favored medicine. Also, women in ancient Babylon were believed to use a mixture of honey and sesame seeds (havla) to prolong youth and beauty, and Roman soldiers ate the mixture for strength and energy.

In the past twenty years, a glut of scientific information has poured in demonstrating that sesame seed, and its components, have over one hundred potential therapeutic applications which you can view at on the GreenMedInfo sesame research page. Given these new revelations, it would seem that sesame would be just as at home in a medicine cabinet as it would be a kitchen cupboard.

Here are just 10 evidence-based medicinal properties of this food-medicine:

Diabetes: A study published in 2011 in the Clinical Journal of Nutrition showed that sesame oil improved the effectiveness of the oral antidiabetic drug glibenclamide in type 2 diabetic patients. [1] Another study published in 2006 in the Journal of Medicinal Foods showed that the substitution of sesame seed oil as the sole edible oil lowers blood pressure and glucose in hypertensive diabetics. [2]

High Blood Pressure: A study published in 2006 in the Yale Journal of Biological Medicine showed that sesame seed oil has a beneficial effect in hypertensive patients on either diuretics or beta-blockers. Substitution of all dietary oils with sesame oil brought down systolic and dystolic blood pressure to normal, in addition to decreasing lipid peroxidation (bodily rancidity) and antioxidant status. [3] One of the compounds identified behind sesame seed’s antihypertensive effects are peptides that act as angiotensin I-converting enzyme inhibitors.[4]

Gingivitis/Dental Plaque: Sesame seed oil has been used for oral health for thousands of years in the traditional Indian medical tradition known as Ayurveda in a process known as “oil pulling.” It involves swishing sesame seed oil in the mouth for prolonged durations and has been said to prevent teeth decay, halitosis, bleeding gums, dry throat, and for strengthening the teeth, gums and jaw. Clinical research now confirms that it compares favorably to chemical mouthwash (chlorhexidine) in improving plaque-induced gingivitis,[5] and that it is capable of reducing Streptococcus mutans growth associated with oral plaque formation. [6]

Infant Health/Massage Oil: A study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Research in 2000 showed that massaging infants with sesame oil improved both their growth and post-massage sleep, in comparison to control oils such as mineral oil.[7]

Multiple Sclerosis (MS): In the animal model of MS, also known as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, sesame seed oil protects mice from developing the disease by reducing IFN-gamma secretion, a key factor in initiating autoimmune inflammation and injury in the nervous system.[8] It has also been research for its potential beneficial role in another neurodegenerative condition, Huntington’s disease. [9]

Antibiotic-Induced Kidney Damage: Sesame seed oil protects against gentamicin-induced kidney damage in rats by reducing oxidative damage caused by the antibiotic.[10]

Atherosclerosis: Sesame seed oil prevents the formation of atherosclerotic lesions in mice fed an atherogenic diet.[11] The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory lignan found within sesame seeds known as sesamol has been identified to be partially responsible for its anti-atherogenic properties. In fact, sesamol has been shown to possess over two dozen beneficial pharmacologically active properties, many of which may contribute to improving cardiovascular health.

Depression: The sesame lignin sesamol was shown to exert an antidepressant-like effect in behavioral despair in chronically stressed mice, specifically by modulating oxidative-nitrosative stress and inflammation.[12]

Radiation-Induced DNA Damage: Sesamol has been shown to protect against gamma radiation-induced DNA damage, likely through its antioxidant properties. [13] It is capable of reducing mortality in radiation treated mice, in part through preventing intestinal and spleen damage.[14] When compared to another powerful antioxidant, melatonin, it was found 20 times more effective as a free radical scavenger.[15]

Cancer: Sesame contains a fat-soluble lignin with phytoestrogenic properties known as sesamin, and which has been studied for inhibiting the proliferation of a wide range of cancer cells, including:

  • Leukemia
  • Multiple Myleoma
  • Colon Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Lung Cancer

Sesamin’s anticancer effects have been linked to the NF-kappaB signaling.[16] Sesame’s lignan content my actually be superior to flaxseed — a fact first reported via the GreenMedInfo newsletter.

Sesame deserves to be recognized, along with garlic, honey, turmeric and a select few other substances, as an easily accessible and affordable food-medicine that, if consumed regularly, could quite possibly save lives.

Aluna Ash- 19d

Video By Paul Butler

Today is a Galactic Activation Portal and day 2 of the new 13 day Red Moon wavespell within the last week of the 11th moon. Red Moon connects to this current Galactic Year- Red Cosmic Moon- which is about purification, emotional transcendence (Cosmic is tone 13) the Sun (father/masculine archetype) and the Moon (mother/feminine archetype) The increase in Solar activity is still being felt, these Galactic Activation Portals help to integrate Cosmic time with linear time.

Dreamstate & astral clearing can be extra active, so if your body is saying “I need sleep or rest”… listen.

We are wrapping up the last 10-11 months this week. The moon is waning, so it is a time of reflection and heightened psychic sensitivity. We also have a build up of energy coming with Neptune, Jupiter & Mercury in a T Square (5/27) after the Galactic Activation Portals (5/23-5/24) until the New Moon in Gemini (6/3) so the desire for change will be strong… mostly internally felt due to the moon phase. Patience and discipline will be needed for change & hidden potential to come to the surface. The next wave will be hitting as the 12th moon cycle begins, around the 30th. 5/23 Portal is connected to Mercury & the Moon. 5/24 Portal is connected to Venus & the Moon.

NEW BIRTHING STAGE EMERGING FROM A CLOSED CHRYSALIS STATE

PERHAPS YOU WILL EXPERIENCE A GRADUAL FEELING OF COMING TO YOUR SENSES AS THOUGH YOU ARE EMERGING FROM A LONG SLEEP

GREAT AWAKENER

YOU ARE NOT WITHOUT POWER

NEW BEGINNINGS

NEW UNION WITH HIGHER SELF, THE DIVINE

New Light Paradigm Anastacia Blue Beyond Guide – 22nd May 2019

Dear Ascending Earth Masters

I was Divinely guided to do Runes for us today. Let me share a little from them. Remember to take your time to read and feel deeply:

DISRUPTION-ELEMENTAL POWER
“Change, freedom, invention and liberation. A pressing need within the psyche to break free from constricting identification with material reality

Elemental disruption, of events totally beyond your control. Expect disruption, the GREAT AWAKENER

Perhaps you will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses as though you are emerging from a long sleep

Then again, the ONSET OF POWER may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, your relationships or beliefs

YOU ARE NOT WITHOUT POWER in this situation

Your INNER STRENGTH, the will you have funded until now in your life, provides support, guidance at a time when everything you’ve taken for granted is being challenged

The more severe the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for your growth. The universe and your own soul are demanding that you do, indeed GROW”

We have made a Quantum Jump/Leap and I shared this as it came through through firstly in both Soul and Spirit, refer update: https://www.facebook.com/256942717835847/posts/1170999043096872?s=100001270343556&sfns=mo

Some souls are feeling the change, freedom, invention and liberation yet while other souls are in the process of ‘disruption of a Great Awakener’ for what they previously knew as their ‘reality’ and this can be in many or all ways in ones life

With others close to us, we are needing to step back from all, as we each go through what we need to, we may see or feel others going through this ‘severe disruption’ for themselves again, this can be in many ways

We do not judge or criticise, yet we encourage with unconditional Divine Love for them and all they are going through, while we adjust to their and our new spaces we are each feeling and we honour this for each and every soul – as with this recent Quantum Jump/Leap, many more will realise in the future just how very big this has been for us all

NEW BEGINNINGS
“Akin to the moon, the intuitive part of your nature, with its urge to harmonising and adjusting in the sphere of personal relationships

The completion of beginnings. May mark a time of JOYful deliverance, of a new life, a new path. Great power. You now have the strength to achieve completion, resolution, from which some a NEW BEGINNING

You must fertilise the ground for your own deliverance

Signals your EMERGENCE from a close, chrysalis state. As you resolve and clear away the old, you will experience a RELEASE from tension and uncertainty”

*Recent Ponderings 1.1: https://www.facebook.com/256942717835847/posts/1174542626075847?s=100001270343556&sfns=mo

1.2 https://www.facebook.com/256942717835847/posts/1174543159409127?s=100001270343556&sfns=mo

“The time of birth is always a critical one. You may be required to free yourself from a rut, habit or relationship, some activity that was quite proper to the self you are leaving behind

Enter the delivery room now

Being centred, grounded, freeing yourself from all unwanted influences and seeing the humour, you are indeed prepared to open yourself to the will of Heaven, await your deliverance with calm certainty”

This speaks for itself and flows beautifully from the first Rune sharings

PARTNERSHIP-A GIFT
“An indication that partnership in some form is at hand. In partnering of every kind you are put on notice not to collapse yourself into that union

For true partnership is achieved only by SEPARATE and WHOLE BEINGS who retain their separateness even as they unite. Remember to let the winds of Heaven dance between you

The path of partnership can lead you to the realisation of a still greater union UNION WITH THE HIGHER SELF, UNION WITH THE DIVINE. The realisation of the DIVINE IN ALL THINGS.

This has no reverse, for it signifies the GIFT OF FREEDOM from with flow all other gifts”

Notice it mentions a A NEW UNION with the Higher Self and the Divine and we need to do so separately – yet-yes we are ONE, yet separately with our union with our Higher Self, the Divine, which is a Divine personal connection of our own Sacred Space…

As we HAVE MADE a QUANTUM JUMP/LEAP recently and we are in a new birthing stage emerging from a closed chrysalis state

A gift of FREEDOM of the old for those who have worked through so very diligently in pushing through so much of old collapsed timelines

Focus on you, yourself…as others will Shine in their own time as that is between them and the Divine and their soul contracts that they chose in being here – that is ‘out of our hands’

Shine on Spiritual Warriors of Peace and Freedom, a new Peace and Freedom as we would not be going through or doing ‘this’ if we were not going to be ‘rewarded’ for all of our hard efforts

As WE ARE (part) of NEW ASCENSION for and with HUmanity!

Addendum:

For those who are seeking further on from this – extreme rage and anger flushing through, when one feels and releases this, from all we have recently been through and this is with others as well – as many of us feel so deeply as empaths with/for others we have a close relationship with, as Blue Rays/Starseeds we feel deeply to transmute – so please be aware of this and go with this, feel this, release this by acknowledging these feelings as they shift/pass through – as then we can release (them) further with-for others, that will enable a further level/step of peace for ourselves – again with others, yet ultimately for-with ourselves – as we clear not only in/with our Soul, yet also our Spirit/Higher Self realm of energies = New Union with our Higher Self-the Divine

As always I am right here with you

You are Masters – You are Ascending – And we are Gathering

Much Unconditional Love, Truth and Honesty

~ Young Lightworkers ~

As we move through this shift we are being introduced to parts of ourselves that we have never known in this lifetime. We’re like a puzzle coming together; it will take time but it will eventually all FIT.

April’s energies are flowing right into May as we are feeling the shift profoundly. We are getting blasted with Solar and Plasma Waves that are aiding our growth, bringing to the surface deeply held programs that cannot survive within our new frame of consciousness. As above, so below. Mama Gaia is raising in her frequency and so are we. This journey is not for the faint of heart; it’s deep and takes warrior energy to walk through and emerge as Light from a very dense Planet. There are layers to healing and May is bringing us through yet another layer that needs to be peeled away; once that layer is peeled we can sit and hold space for our growth and for our healing. I’ve been noticing some themes in May when it comes to POWER. As the Divine Mother sweeps through 2019 and activates our POWER we will see the emerging of the Collective STEPPING UP. We are hearing a call, a pull. Our Spirit is remembering. We are being called to step into our roles here at any means necessary. We all came down in bodies, races, cultures, for a reason. We each play a role in eradicating DEEP programmings from the specific bodies we chose to come down in.

As we go deeper into 2019 and for the next three years of the purge, The Divine Mother will teach us how to come together, how to work with each other because we all hold a scared note of the Divine; we now need to resonate to our Sacred tone/frequency. We each have one and together the harmony of our tones will build a new Earth. We need to step out of ONLY seeing Love and Light and see the totality and morph that change into something tangible. You can’t create something new if you refuse to see the pattern of why the old didn’t work. We all gotta check our privilege and where we are still holding on to detrimental thought processes. 2019 didn’t come to play; it’s been so raw with the lessons and we can’t at this time in Earth’s Evolution be, act and stay in old programmings; it will tear us apart.

The Central Sun will play a pivotal role this year. Its role is to activate dormant cells and DNA to upgrade and SWITCH on our Soul’s Wisdom.

The solar flares and plasma waves are coming in to activate us into 72 Dimensions of reality; if not more. Our mind is going haywire, to put it mildly! Because we are moving from a literal mind to now a higher mind and our bodies higher consciousness is getting IMMENSE downloads. We are getting blasted like a computer program with thoughts, ideas, seeing energies, entities, sensing and seeing when we are coming in and out of different dimensions, seeing people’s aura and the entities or energies around them.

You now know before someone speaks what they are about and who they truly are; telepathic communication between people, nature and animals. You’ll notice that you will have a thought in your mind of a whole conversation that is not yours, I notice this when I’m in public.

I’m literally hearing in my mind someone’s thoughts. This is why I stressed the importance of getting to know your energy signature, how you think and operate because we are picking up on EVERYTHING and it’s important to know what is yours and what is not so you don’t become manic and anxious. Our Intuition is on overdrive and this is just the beginning with our Intuition, my Higher self is telling me. We will start to come into our Power like never before and it’s begun.

When we’re aligned this ride can be really fun, to see the intricate movement of Source in this Awakening; it blows my mind, what I see happening on this Planet right now and my team keeps saying that we’ve seen NOTHING yet! Hold Steadfast Starseeds and know that we are going through it! Take time out whenever you need to level up your energy. Our Spiritual Teams are asking us to tag them in; they can only assist with our permission. Stop overthinking it and just be in it.

TRUST comes up strongly as some of us are questioning “when will this end”, my loves, we’ve only just begun. Find your happy, find your release, your joy. Detach from the collective mind and take time out for YOU when needed.

So much Love, Peace and Strength Starseeds

Mike Quinsey – Channeling his Higher Self

Mike Quinsey – Channeling his Higher Self

Who said time flies because they were correct and it seems to be going faster than ever. It certainly proves that time is not constant and I do not think anyone would dispute that. Then move forward to a coming period when the vibrations will have become so high that everything will be spoken of as being in the now. You may ponder whether everything remains forever and there is every reason to believe it does. You can travel back in time, so somewhere out there you can view history as things really happened. Much of it goes unrecorded in your history books and in any event is often incorrectly recorded. The Akashic records are your main source of information and are such that you can actually be a spectator at an event as though you were really there.

What you will find is that history repeats itself. Civilisations tend to go through the same challenges time and time again, until they have experienced sufficient to have learnt their lessons and move on. You never stop learning, moving from being a single soul onto group souls that grow larger and larger. Your Human experience has been more of a test of your resolve to face whatever has confronted you, and many of you have overcome the difficulties and risen up to now have two feet upon the path to Ascension. You have had help but it is open to anyone who takes up the challenge and shows the determination to succeed. Be assured that every soul has the potential to rise up, but many have not recognised the opportunity being given.

There is no urgency expressed where your evolution is concerned, in fact each life you have is planned to suit your ability to learn from your experiences. So no one is pushing you hard except yourself and that means you are never given more than you can handle. When the “Human” experience commenced eons of time ago, progress was deliberately held back to give souls ample time to benefit from them and slowly evolve. After many, many lives there came a period where your evolution was speeded up, and so it has continued until Homo Sapiens were introduced as another step towards growth and completion. Your history clearly shows such progress in recent times that coincided with your ability to become more of a Being of Light. As with every phase of your evolution, many other souls of great experience have been on hand to assist you.

Your history is being re-evaluated and it is becoming very apparent that not only have you had help from evolved beings, often they have been other species such as the Avians that presently surround and guard you against any possible interference. Cave drawings also clearly show that there has been visitations by the Ant Beings and even the Mantis Beings. You may find some of them scary but understand they are loving beings who have reached a high point of evolution, and they give their services to help younger souls to evolve. In their presence you would find their energies to be of a loving nature and in no way threatening or unpleasant. There are of course other kinds of beings that are well evolved but in service to self, and these are mainly the reptilians but we hasten to add that not all are negative. In general they are kept away from you but occasionally in the past, a single being has been able to make contact with you. Do not let this worry you as you are protected by the higher beings of Light.

We are aware that there are large numbers of people that just do not want to know about other forms of life, and clearly they are not ready for such revelations, and you can be assured that no one will be forcing the issue. However, disclosure must go ahead for the benefit of those souls who are ready to expand their level of consciousness. Evolution is a very personal matter and you are being encouraged to make your own pathway, to your liking. What could be better than gently easing you along at a pace that suits you and does not put you under any pressure.

In between lives you make plans for your next incarnation with the help of your Guides, whose advice is respected because of their vast experience and knowledge. With few exceptions all of you chose your own times to incarnate on Earth based upon what you have learnt about your needs. You do not necessarily incarnate into the same country or religion and that depends on the lessons you need to evolve. Each life is arranged to give you the maximum amount of opportunities to have a successful experience. Chances missed will come around again, as your progress must proceed in an orderly manner.

Naturally there are times when the outworking of experiences includes other people, and the working out of situations becomes quite intricate. Often it includes other souls who have played a part in your previous lives, and you may for example “owe” them a favour in return for help you have been given by them, or vice versa. Life may seem full of random happenings and many are, but in the main important events are set up to allow certain experiences that may help all souls involved. The most difficult scenario you are likely to face, is when of necessity you are born into a family where there is a need to get on with each other, and where previous opportunities have failed.

When each life is completed there is always a review of it with Beings who understood your life plan and can help you overcome the problems you may have encountered. In that event you may not necessarily have to go through the same ones again. What you may view as chance happenings are still likely to have been planned as unlikely as it may seem. Take note of any event in your life that seems intentional, and try to determine the meaning behind it as nothing really happens by chance. Sometimes the most difficult experiences to understand are those that call for some form of generosity from you, yet you cannot always respond in that way. Clearly if you are being urged intuitively to help, it is possibly likely that you are being “urged” by your Guides to do so. Certainly follow your intuition and you will not go far wrong. It is worth reminding yourself that every soul that incarnates on Earth has a purpose and a plan, and are equipped with whatever they need to ensure that their experience is rewarding.

I leave you with love and blessings, and may the Light brighten your days and path to completion.

This message comes through my Higher Self.

In Love and Light.

Mike Quinsey.

Ascension Wave Backlash – The Latest from ECETI and James Gilliland (IMPORTANT)

Ascension Wave Backlash – The Latest from ECETI and James Gilliland (IMPORTANT)

Ascension Wave Backlash

May 17th 2019

As in all major shifts in consciousness and energy there often is a backlash or catch up period to adjust to the new energies. This last wave has brought quite a few bad nasties out of the woodwork. Lightworkers everywhere are being challenged on every level. The Archons are pulling out all the stops to maintain control. It is futile. We are seeing disruptive beings we have never seen before doing all they can to muddy the waters and prevent this shift from happening. Leaders who have aligned with these Archonic energies in their lust for power and wealth are falling apart. Their dark rituals are not working and the forces they call upon are being removed. This leaves them ineffective, dysfunctional and some are becoming blithering idiots exposing themselves for all to see. Never underestimate a cornered animal and they have painted themselves into a corner. The problem is the entities who have been manipulating the fallen humans are being cut loose and they are angry, running amuck. No more than ever it is imperative to maintain one’s self-authority and do clearings. This is your body, your mind, your incarnation and no one has the right to mess with it. This does not mean they won’t try. Center yourself, know what love is and what love is not. Your core essence is a loving, joyous, powerful manifesting God/Goddess. Stand in your divinity. This too shall pass. Practice loving detachment and compassion with those who have not achieved self-mastery. Here is the healing technique to clear these energies. Might have to do them often until these energies settle down.

For your convenience I have placed James Gilliland clearing technique below:

Clearing Technique

2-3 minutes

STEPS TO CLEAR THE ENERGY

1. Close your aura by visualizing a white or gold light around you.

2. Call upon your chosen cultural representative of God, be it Jesus, Buddha, Babaji, Mary, Mohammed, White Eagle or another one of the Beautiful Many Christed Ones.

3. Tell the entities they are healed and forgiven, lifted and enlightened.

4. Tell them they are healed and surrounded with the Christ light and the Christ love.

5. Ask your chosen representative to take them to their perfect place.

6. Ask that all negative thought forms and limiting mental concepts be dissolved and lifted in the light of truth.

7. Ask that all psychic bonds be severed, and close their auras to all but spirit of the highest vibration.

Repeat this process until you feel clear. There may be more than one healing to do. Remember your word is very powerful, and what is spoken on their level manifests instantly. Many enlightened ones use this process before opening.

It creates a clear and safe environment, and it also lifts the one who is doing the healing. Intent is nine-tenths of the law. If you intend to serve and heal, you will draw to you entities of like mind. If you intend to coerce or manipulate, again you will draw entities of like mind. It is the law of attraction.

“Unearthing The Earth’s Golden Buddha ~ And Your Own”

A Message from The Arcturian Collective
via channel Marie Mohler

Received Earth Day ~ April 22, 2019

Dear Ones,

It is Mother Earth, Mother Mary, El Morya, and the Arcturian High Council here, bringing through a Message of Light on this beautiful Earth Day celebrated on your world today. As we tune in to the frequencies of your planet, of your collective humanity, and of the month of May on the horizon, we feel the powerful energies of Independence and yet Interconnectedness rising all over the globe. In the mayhem of disinformation, constant technological device utilization, and the dematerialization of so many of the old systems and structures presently unfolding, there is a very sweet and strong pulsing of Light that is summoning and that is actually creating a profound Emancipation and Weaving Together of what is common among all Sentient Life on your world; and that is a Propensity to Love, to Feel, to Join, to Collaborate, to Help, and to Unite in all ways on all levels. It may not appear that way in your outer worlds. We know that some of you listening to this message today may think that our Arcturian Collective is reading and transmitting a message perhaps about some other planet in our galaxy. But that is not the case. Earth is rising in her frequencies to take her rightful place again in the Milky Way and in the cosmology of the Greater Oneness that all things truly are. And therefore, the Rising and that Frequency Upgrade in her Heavenly and her Physical Body is Breathing New Life and Light into all Beings on Planet Earth at this time.

May 2019 is bringing through Higher Frequencies and Vibrations of Emancipation and thus . . . it is Pulsing Frequencies of Independence and Inter-Dependence at the same time. It would seem that these Energetic Truths would detract from one another. But in fact, they are perfectly complimentary. For you see dear ones, all of the duality that you have journeyed for eons and eons of time is now weaving itself back into the Oneness that all things truly are. And this May, you will see this rise in individuals and in the collective towards sovereignty, emancipation, liberation, freedom, and independence. For all sentient life is calling in the Light to be Free. To live Free. To shine Free. And to rise above any and all archaic energies of separation and enslavement that previously controlled or organized your lives there. That is not the Earth’s Divine Blueprint. Enslavement, Entrapment,

Corruption, and Illusion are definitely NOT who the Earth Mother Soul Star is. In fact, she is quite the opposite. But in the theatre of 3D life and this past 3D world age and cycle, she disguised herself, so well in fact, that even she became accustomed for a time to the density she was carrying and swirling on and within her body temple as she journeyed through time and space this past 26,000+ years. But the Light Codes streaming to the Earth and to the Heart of her Light Within are infusing the Earth Mother with Deep Remembrance of Her Divine Blueprint of Light. She is a Star Planet of Higher Dimensional Light. And it is Time for her to not only Remember This Again, but it is Time for her to Fully Embody This Again. And so too, Shall All Of You.

Energy Updates

The Energies of May 2019 are not unlike the story of the Golden Buddha that this channel speaks about in her April 2019 Fireside Chats podcast for Whole Soul School and Foundation, as initially told by some wonderful storytellers in the film, Finding Joe. You may wish to go and have a listen to that podcast once you have listened to our message here today. The Story of the Golden Buddha as we understand it is that there once was a group of buddhist monks living in a monastery that at one point created an enormous statue of Buddha, made out of solid Gold. Every day this Golden Buddha was a reminder and reflection of their own Inner Buddha, their own Inner Perfection, and their own Inner Golden Light. But over time, the monks began to feel concerned that the Golden Buddha could be stolen, pillaged, plundered, or decimated in some way. And so they decided to cover it up with clay. And which of course, they did. Over many hundreds of years passed, the Golden Buddha that had become a Clay Buddha . . . eventually became a Stone Buddha, as the clay baked day after day and year after year and century after century in the sun. And then over even more periods of time, weeds, bushes, and other hearty seeds began to take root and grow on top of the Stone Buddha statue as well. Until one day, many hundreds of years after the original monks covered that Golden Buddha in clay, another monk went out to pray in front the Stone Buddha. Only on this day, when he went to kneel down, he noticed there was a crack in the stone. When he looked closer, he saw Golden Light emanating from within that tiny crack in the stone. He went to tell many of his fellow monks, who then consciously chiseled the stone exterior off of that Golden Buddha until it was finally Free At Last To Shine. They had successfully Unearthed that Golden Buddha, that was a pure and perfect reflection of their own Inner Buddha, or their own Inner Golden Light.

This story is a perfect metaphor for the journey unfolding in May 2019 on your world. The Earth is like that Golden Buddha, whose Light, Spirit, and Perfect Divine Essence has been covered up by eons and eons of time, many storms, humanity’s forgetfulness and spiritual amnesia, and the sun-baked denser clay energies of unconsciousness, separation, ego-led living, and division. But the Original Earth, the Original Divine Blueprint of the Earth, is that Perfect and Pure Golden Light Energy. In the Creator’s Infinite Wisdom, the Earth herself was a reflection of the Sun, the Central Sun, the Great Central Sun, and the Grand Central Sun, that collectively filled the Earth with a Purity of Golden Light so vast, so strong, so profound, that only High Frequencied Dimensional Living was the Organizational Energy of the Day and of the Planet for a long long period of time. All sentient life that lived her for many many eons of time came to experience that Golden Light manifested in form here on Earth, to literally emanate and emit that Light in itself. All Sentient Life and All Beings of Planet Earth lived in High Frequencied Light in a way ~ like that Original Golden Buddha ~ except in this case, in the case of all of you and the Earth Mother Herself, you were living breathing embodiments of the Source Light Codes and the Original Divine Golden Pure Light that reigned through the Central Sun Portals always and in every way.

And then, fast forward in time from that Original Golden Light Energy filling the Earth and all her inhabitants, to the time of this past 26,000+ year cycle and world age characterized by frequencies of spiritual dementia, spiritual amnesia, soul entrapment, lower density living, and deep corruption and illusion energies, and you can see how the Golden Glow of the Original Earth’s Light Codes and Perfection, and yours as well, got covered up, by the winds, sands, and storms that ravaged this world over a great period of time. So much so, that no history books and no person would survive to tell the story of what originally was. And what the True Origins of Earth really are. And what the True Light of this Earth Star Planet really is.

And here you are, many thousands of years later, in a timeline, where there is a crack in the “Earth Star’s” Stone Buddha, if you will. Some of you have been walking along in your journey, and have noticed a few cracks in the Earth’s exterior. Some of you have seen the Inner Light Codes shining through from within. Some of you have glimpsed that teeny tiny emanation of Light and sought further. Some of you have activated and awakened enough to know that the Earth’s cracks and subsequent emanations of Light are forecasting your own “cracks” and coming emanations of Light. And some can feel the cracking, but have no awareness or palpable sense that the cracking is leading to the uncovering of a much greater Light. Some only feel that in some ways . . . “The Sky Is Falling,” . . . “The Sky Is Falling.” Isn’t that another tale on your world . . . about a character called Chicken Little? In any case, all of your stories, all of your mythologies, have Truths and Pieces of Timeless Wisdom inside them, like little bread crumbs, to help you follow the Golden Light when the timing was right all the way back to your Original Blueprints of Perfection and Sun-Coded Light. Its right there in the Hero’s Journey, or the Journeys of Personal Transformation that you all make, through eons of time, even in the greatest of density and adversity sometimes. In fact, it is often BECAUSE OF density and adversity that becomes unlivable, intolerable, unacceptable, unpalatable, and unmanageable that many of you begin to see and begin to allow the cracks in the stone of your human history and the earth’s history . . . long enough to catch a glimpse of something Higher, something Lighter, something Brighter, and something way more magnificent than the stone cold presentation of separation and density believed to be all there is on your world.

And those that have had the opportunity to see the Golden Light shining through that Buddha, to see that Golden Light shining from within the Earth under all of those weeds, that corruption, and that illusion, and to see the Golden Light shining underneath all of the ego’s conditionings, armor, and defense mechanisms, can feel that something BIG is COMING. Something new is RISING. Something extraordinary is HAPPENING. Those of you that feel this way know that we are in a timeline of immense change now and of profound spiritual archeology, where the cracks in the stone of the false lives and understandings and ego protections that have been manufactured for eons of time . . . are revealing themselves for the “false gods” that they are . . . and that the True Light, the True Light Codes, and the True Golden Frequencies of Perfection that organically know how to template Golden Ages of Infinite Wonder and Divine Light . . . are re-emerging now in all of you. In every one and in every thing. In the Earth Mother herself. And ultimately, in the Collective Consciousness of All Sentient Life here on and within the Earth.

May 2019 rings the sound of the Return of that Immense Light . . . as a clearer bell of Truth, of Resurrection, of Resetting the Earth to her Original Independence, Sovereignty, Freedom, Joy, Perfection, and Bliss in more and more palpable ways now.

When the monks set out to excavate the Golden Buddha from its Stone Exterior (and essentially its overbaked false covering, codes, and disguise) . . . did it at first get messier, dustier, and crumblier, than when the Stone Statue sat for eons in one big piece? Sure. Did it require some effort on the monks parts to consciously engage the excavation process, to unearth the Golden Buddha underneath years and years of cloaking, hiding, and dormancy? Yes. But did that change the fact that the Golden Buddha was inside it all along? No. And did that change the fact that the Golden Buddha patiently waited for all that time, for the right time, when it summoned forth the ability to shine and reign its Light all over the world again? No.

And here we are ~ telling you all this story today ~ to connect your Hearts and Souls and Minds with the Light Energies streaming forth in May. And how perfect that this message can come through on Earth Day, April 22, 2019, ringing its Light through the ethers and through all of you, to remember . . . and to awaken . . . to the fact that the Earth Is Rising and Unearthing Herself in this Grand Birth now . . . in the Galaxy . . . to rise and reset and reclaim her Soul Presence and Soul Essence of Divine Sovereignty, Divine Perfection, and Divine Blueprints that take their Infinite Instructions from the Expansive Light of the Sun, the Central Sun, the Great Central Sun, and the Grand Central Sun, that are always, always, always infinitely connected to the Heart of God, the Heart of Source, and the Heart of One, from which you all came as well.

The Earth Mother’s Spiritual Excavation in the Month of May 2019 and beyond reflects, summons, and mirrors your own Spiritual Excavations in the Month of May 2019. World structures will crack if they are the false structures and narratives from the past world age and cycle. Only those structures that were the original templates of living light on this planet . . . that have been held in a state of dormancy and captivity all this time . . . will be able to rise up and out of that clay, stone, or false exterior . . . and emerge as its Original Blueprints of Perfection, that anyone with eyes to see will see the Authenticity and Light and Love in their Original Codes. False Structures will continue to fall away. Authentic Light and Divine Structures will re-emerge to shine in Truth for All Time. And New Structures of Light will rise as well, to template and support the New 5D+ Earth Light Codes flowing forth to re-organize and re-orient all sentient life here to what is perfect, what is divine, what is sovereign, and what is true on your world.

The Golden Buddha has risen! The Earth’s Light Coded Original Perfection is rising! Your own Inner Golden Buddhas are Rising. And so too, are your Earth Encoded Light Codes Within YOU rising into the perfection that Humanity and All Sentient Life here was always designed and templated to be.

The Sun Portals are doing their work, streaming through the atmospheric debris, strengthening by the day, clearing a path for the Higher Frequencies of Independence, Divine Sovereignty, Unified Light, and Interconnectedness, Oneness, Joy, and Prosperity to be the new order of the day. The new blueprint that all begin to live by.

There’s a New Sheriff in town that governs all of the cellular and soulular functions of the New Earth . . . and that leader . . . is The Light. The Pure and Infinite Light of Source Energy in All Time. That is who is returning. That is who is revealing itself through the cracks in the stones of your lives and your structures all over the world.

That which was never true, that was falsely implanted into the psyche, heart, and mind of the sentient collective here on earth, is being removed, rock by rock, lie by lie, disguise by disguise. To reveal corruption, separation, manipulation, and division at its core.

That which was ALWAYS TRUE, even when it was submerged, hidden, forced underground, and deep into the recesses of the human psyche, heart, and mind of the sentient collective is unearthing, is RISING, and is SHINING, crack by crack, summoning by summoning, and emancipation by emancipation.

All in the Cosmos are watching and witnessing and supporting the Earth’s Unearthing and the Earth’s Rising at this time. A Star Planet is breaking out of its False Density and Rising into its Organic and Original Light. Every being wants a front row seat at this miraculous unfoldment.

Many may think that it is taking a long time to break free. And we would say, it is happening in cosmic and quantum seconds. Stay awake. Stay alert. Exponential change is happening every day. Cracks in the old codes are revealing themselves daily, and the crumbles and crumbling structures are showing you this to be true.

Notice where your attachments lie. Notice where you are still resonating in the old codes and worry about the structures leaving your world. Notice where you find it difficult to release the heavy stone in exchange for the recovery of your True Light.

The Golden Buddha didn’t fight the monks working to set it free. Nor should the Earth. Nor should you. Be discerning in your judgment of what is crumbling. Be discerning in the energy you expend fighting the inevitability of the change and the rising.

True Light always shines. It can be covered up, but it has NEVER stopped shining. Never.

False light, false promises, false structures and narratives may look or sound appealing, for they have been formulated to look and feel that way. But their true nature will always reveal itself, in one way or another.

So watch for Revelations in the Month of May. Witness the further emancipation of the Earth from heavy dense vibrations of illusion and corruption. Embrace the sightings of the Golden Light found all over the world, in people waking up to the Truth of their Golden Inner Buddha or their Golden Inner Organic Light. This Light is free from Religion, free from Dogma, free from Corrupt Rules and Old Codes. This Light is Sovereign. Because this Light is DIVINE.

And the Living Essence of Light is DIVINE. It is by its nature FREE, and JOYFUL, and Emanating LOVE.

In those frequencies of True Light, the World is Independent and Sovereign and it is Interdependent and Organized by Oneness and Synergy.

Let the Earth restructure herself. Allow the Rising in the Codes of Light we speak of today.

And mostly, take the inner action steps that you can take, . . . to be a witness of yourself, of your old stone codes falling away. These shifts are happening to every one of you. The more you can turn to your conscious breath, to your Inner Light, to your Inner Guidance System, and to your Capacity to Love, to Heal, to Help, and to come together with others in the Spirit of Unity, Kindness, Compassion, and Conscious Creativity for the Highest Good of the Whole, the more you will ride these waves of change with a Lightness of Spirit, a Joy in your Heart, a Prosperity in your Lived Experience, and a Peace in the Greater Unfoldment and Divine Plan that always knows, sees, and organizes all things.

You are loved Dear Ones.

You ARE Love.
All Our Love.

SANANDA: GROW NOT FAINT IN THESE FINAL HOURS

SANANDA: GROW NOT FAINT IN THESE FINAL HOURS

By Chris Donahue

ESU “JESUS” SANANDA

I AM ESU JMMANUEL SANANDA PRESENT IN THE RADIANCE AND IN SERVICE UNTO GOD OF LIGHT, ATON. PEACE BE UNTO MY FELLOW BRETHREN AND UNTO YOU, THOMAS.

THE VICTORY

Always the adversary baits the snare and waits to see who will be caught. Ah, but mine ones have been well trained and it is the adversary who shall be caught within the trap of his own making. So be it.

You ones think that the countless attorneys and the funds that have gone forth for attorneys have been in vain; nay, they have been thine great teacher– for now, with knowledge, you shall know victory! It matters not whether the victory be in the courts of injustice. You shall know victory among men and victory in the heavens!

Grow not faint of heart for in the final hours the testing shall be the greatest of all. Who will turn aside before the dawn? Who will stay the course? MINE SHALL NOT MOVE FOR THEY ARE MY BROTHERS AND TOGETHER WE SHALL SERVE WITH DIGNITY, WITH HONOR, AND WITH LOVE. THINE ENEMY SHALL NOT FIND ARMOUR FOR THEY ARE WELL FORTIFIED. I AM A SHIELD WHICH STANDS BETWEEN THEY AND MINE ENEMY!

Ones are hearing their call and seeing possibilities within TRUTH. Ones are seeing the options laid before their feet and ones are RESPONDING. You ones are caretakers of the LAMP; HOLD AS SACRED YOUR TRUST FOR THE LAMP OF FREEDOM SHALL NOT BE EXTINGUISHED!

Many will come against thee, many will be sent. They shall fall, ALL!

Have I not said that you must be as wise as the serpent and as harmless as the dove? And so it is. As with the serpent, I expect mine ones to strike without mercy in the presence of evil! DO NOT MISUNDERSTAND MY MEANING. I DID NOT SAY TO DO PHYSICAL HARM; I SAID TO STRIKE WITHOUT MERCY IN THE PRESENCE OF EVIL. I MEAN TO STAND YOUR GROUND– FOR LIGHT DOES NOT BACK2DOWN IN THE PRESENCE OF EVIL, EVIL WITHDRAWS FROM LIGHT AND IT IS THE LIGHT THAT SHALL KNOW THE VICTORY. FOR THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE AND SO IT IS!

DECEPTION

The adversary gloats and is most clever. Beware of cleverness. The very cleverness that the adversary has laid forth shall be the very thing that shall bring him down. Deception is a most interesting process. What tangled webs are woven in the effort at deceiving. When the lies are piled one upon another, the memory becomes incapable of tracking that which has been said as compared with that which was considered, contemplated, alternatively considered, etc. Which lie was put forth? Was it this or that? Ah, on a witness stand this becomes most interesting to observe– for the adversary, in his attempt to remain free, only becomes inexorably entangled within the web of his own creation. And so it is. So be it.

Soon you shall rejoice!

SOON, YOU SHALL KNOW WONDER

Always give thanks unto Creator for the blessings given forth with each passing day. Each day is filled with an abundance of opportunity for sharing, growing, learning, and working toward thine goals. You shall be tempted to fall into non-action. Become not lazy during this period of the cycle, for the hope lies in the actions put forth that the promise may be realized. Ever hold the goal and it must come to be.

HOLD IT IN YOUR HEARTS, BELOVED FRIENDS OF MINE, SOON YOU SHALL KNOW WONDER. WE ARE WITH THEE ONES CONSTANTLY NOW AND WE ARE BUT YOUR BROTHERS. LET US WALK TOGETHER TO THE GOAL IN UNITY OF PURPOSE. BE EVER MINDFUL TO HOLD LOVE IN YOUR HEART. HARDEN NOT YOUR HEARTS, BELOVED. THE LIGHT OF UNDERSTANDING BECKONS. LET ITS RADIANCE ENTER TO DISPEL ALL DARKNESS, THAT YOU MAY STAND BEFORE GOD IN GLORY. SO BE IT. WALK IN PEACE FOR YOU ARE GREATLY LOVED. WE ARE FAMILY. YOU OF THE GOODLY COMPANY ARE THE BELOVED SERVANTS. LET US TREAT ONE ANOTHER AS THE ONE FAMILY THAT WE TRULY ARE. MY BLESSINGS ARE UPON YOU, ONE AND ALL.

Salu!

Hibiscus Tea: Flower Power

Hibiscus Tea Flower Power

Written By Michael Greger M.D. FACLM

In Friday’s NutritionFacts.org video-of-the-day Better Than Green Tea? I compare the antioxidant content of a number of common beverages. This is part of a series based on the landmark study “The total antioxidant content of more than 3100 foods, beverages, spices, herbs and supplements used worldwide,” available full-text, free online. Previous video installments include Antioxidant Content of 3,139 Foods and Antioxidant Power of Plant Foods Versus Animal Foods.

Most people eat only a few discrete times a day. Sipping a healthful beverage throughout the day allows you to bathe your organs in antioxidants all day long, potentially adding Nutrition Without Calories to our daily diet. Previously my family’s go-to beverage was cold-brewed matcha white tea with lemon, based on the science I covered in The Healthiest Beverage, Cold Steeping Green Tea, Is Matcha Good for You? and Green Tea vs. White. But that was before 283 different beverages were tested in this new study. I had previously covered more than a dozen herbal teas in The Healthiest Herbal Tea, but nothing prepared me for the new king of the hill, hibiscus.

When it comes to antioxidant content, hibiscus beats out green tea, but hibiscus still lacks the weight of clinical evidence. There are only a few hundred studies published on hibiscus, compared to thousands on green tea, but hibiscus does appear to have anti-inflammatory properties, help lower high blood pressure, help lower uric acid levels in gout sufferers, and improve cholesterol and triglyceride levels in pre-diabetics and diabetics. Like chamomile (see Red Tea, Honeybush, & Chamomile), hibiscus tea also appears to inhibit the growth of human cancer cells in a petri dish. You know there’s something to it when the meat industry tries adding hibiscus to their burgers to make them less carcinogenic.

Rats forced to drink the human equivalent of about a 150 cups a day for three months had lowered sperm counts, but no adverse effects on humans have been reported with regular consumption. My only cautions would be that like a number of fruit, vegetable, and herbal beverages, hibiscus may affect drug levels, so you should always let your prescribing physicians know what you’re taking, and the impressive manganese content of hibiscus tea may exceed recommended limits at high intakes, so we probably shouldn’t drink more than a quart a day.

In the video I offer my hibiscus punch recipe, based on “zinger” tea, but here’s an even healthier, cheaper, more environmentally friendly way (thanks Paul!)—just blender in a tablespoon of bulk hibiscus. Then it’s like my Pink Juice—or a hibiscus version of matcha tea—where you don’t miss out on any of the nutrition by throwing away the tea leaves. And instead of erythritol, you can blend in a few dates (thanks “HTWWO”!). Please play around with it and share your own favorite recipe in the comments section below.

15 Surprising Health Benefits of Hibiscus Tea with Recipes

By Jon Yaneff, CNP

Hibiscus Tea Benefits
Hibiscus Tea: Overview

Hibiscus herbal tea is more than just a delicious beverage. The health benefits of hibiscus tea are what make it so special. Hibiscus tea is made from the deep magenta sepals of the roselle flower, which is thought to be native to Africa. It is also known by its plant name Hibiscus sabdariffa hence the name hibiscus tea. The hibiscus name also comes from the Greek word hibiskos, and it is a flowering plant from the mallow family.

It is important to note that there are 232 species of hibiscus, and not all of them are used for tea or healing. For instance, the Hibiscus sabdariffa plant should not be confused with other hibiscus species such as the non-medicinal Hibiscus acetosella. The traditional hibiscus tea plant has yellow flowers and a red center. The Hibiscus acetosella has red flowers.

Health Benefits of Hibiscus Tea

1. Packed with Nutrients and Antioxidants

Like many other healthy teas, hibiscus tea is loaded with antioxidants. The ones you will find in hibiscus include zinc, vitamin A, vitamin C, and a number of bioflavonoids. Hibiscus antioxidants are mostly found in the anthocyanins of the plant, which are the natural pigments that give the flower its vibrant color.

Antioxidants fight free radical damage to your cells due to frequent exposure to dangerous chemicals and a poor diet.

Research also confirms the beneficial effect of the antioxidant content in hibiscus.

One rat study from 2011 found that hibiscus extract increased the amount of antioxidant enzymes and lowered the harmful effects of free radicals by up to 92%.

Another animal study, from 2009, showed that the leaves of the hibiscus have significant antioxidant properties such as polyphenols and flavonols.

2. Reduces High Blood Pressure

Scientific studies suggest that daily hibiscus tea consumption may benefit people with slightly increased blood pressure. In a six-week study published in the Journal of Nutrition, researchers discovered that hibiscus tea had a greater effect on lowering systolic blood pressure than the placebo, in 65 adults with mildly high blood pressure or pre-hypertension.

Studies have also found that drinking hibiscus tea can lower blood pressure in type 2 diabetics.

3. Helps Lower Cholesterol

The antioxidant properties in hibiscus tea are also thought to benefit people with high cholesterol. Animal studies have found that hibiscus tea may lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, also known as the “bad” cholesterol.

Other studies indicate that hibiscus tea may lower cholesterol levels in people with metabolic syndrome or diabetes.

In one study published in the journal Phytomedicine in 2010, the researchers recommended hibiscus extracts to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels in metabolic syndrome patients.

A 2009 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that doses of hibiscus tea twice a day for a month had significantly increased HDL cholesterol, and reduced LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides in type 2 diabetes patients.

A recent study from 2018, published in the Avicenna Journal of Phytomedicine, found that drinking hibiscus tea had significantly reduced total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol after 12 weeks. The cholesterol-lowering effect was thought to be due, in part, to the antioxidant anthocyanin content.

4. Lowers Diabetes Risk by Reducing Cholesterol and Blood Pressure

In the aforementioned study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in 2009, researchers found that hibiscus tea could significantly reduce LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol, and raise high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels in 53 type 2 diabetics.

Another study from 2009 found that daily hibiscus tea consumption could reduce blood pressure in type 2 diabetics.

5. Offers Liver Protection

The antioxidant properties of hibiscus tea may also help treat liver disease. In a study published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology in 2000, researchers found that the anthocyanins in hibiscus tea could significantly reduce inflammatory liver lesions and oxidative liver damage in rats with toxic livers.

6. Anti-Cancer Properties

Likely due to the antioxidant content in hibiscus tea, there is some research that supports hibiscus tea’s anti-cancer potential. The hibiscus protocatechuic acid found in hibiscus tea has strong antioxidant and anti-tumor properties. It is a metabolite of the polyphenols in hibiscus tea, which may also have potent anti-cancer abilities.

In a study published in the journal Biochemical Pharmacology in 2000, researchers from the Department and Institute of Biochemistry at the Chung Shan Medical and Dental College in Taichung, Taiwan, suggested that the protocatechuic acid in hibiscus tea inhibits cancer cell growth by inducing cell death in human leukemia cells.

Another study published in the journal Molecular Carcinogenesis in 2005 found that hibiscus extracts would also cause cell death when exposed to eight different kinds of gastric carcinoma cells.

More research from 2016 shows that hibiscus extract impairs cell growth and reduces the invasiveness of plasma cell and mouth cancers. Hibiscus also has the potential to prevent the spreading of prostate cancer cells.

7. Helps Relieve Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression

Hibiscus tea health benefits also include calming the nervous system. This helps put people into a positive mind frame to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.

In a study published in the Indian Journal of Pharmacology in 2012, researchers found that the flavonoids, anthocyanins, and anthocyanidins in hibiscus have potential antidepressant activity.

Another study from 2012 found that other hibiscus species can help reduce depression in mice.

8. Benefits Weight Loss

Drinking hibiscus tea may also be a useful component of weight loss programs. Hibiscus tea is low in calories, and it is a diuretic herb that helps flush toxins and excess fluids from the body.

In a 12-week study published in the journal Food & Function in 2014, researchers found that hibiscus extract consumption could reduce obesity and abdominal fat, and improve liver damage in obese individuals.

Research published in the journal Medical Hypotheses in 2002 also suggests that hibiscus tea may be a natural weight loss alternative. Furthermore, a 2010 review suggests that herbal teas like hibiscus tea can help support weight loss by increasing the intake of fluids.

9. Improves Digestion

Hibiscus tea is also considered a valuable digestive aid, and it is thought to improve bowel and bladder function. The diuretic properties of hibiscus tea will also help treat constipation and improve the strength of the gastrointestinal system.

The anti-spasmodic effect of hibiscus tea is considered useful for symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome.

10. Helps Boost the Immune System

The high amount of vitamin C in hibiscus tea is considered a great immune system booster, and it can help prevent against colds and the flu. It has the ability to lower body temperature; therefore, hibiscus tea benefits may extend to people with a fever as well.

11. Helps Improve Skin Conditions

The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties in hibiscus tea, such as vitamins C and A, can effectively treat acne, scars, sunburns, eczema, and skin allergies.

12. Beneficial Effects on Oxidative Stress

As mentioned, hibiscus tea is an incredible source of antioxidants, which prevent free radical damage.

An imbalance between the levels of oxidation and antioxidants in the body is what leads to oxidative stress, and conditions such as cancer, gene mutations, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, atherosclerosis, heart failure, heart attacks, and more.

One study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture in 2012 discovered that hibiscus tea increased antioxidant load in the bloodstream and lowered the functionality of compounds that can contribute to oxidative stress and damage cells.

The researchers suggested that the high number of polyphenols in hibiscus is what made the most impact in the study.

Another study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements in 2017 found that both hibiscus tea extract and green tea extract had beneficial effects on oxidative stress in male athletes due to a significant increase in total antioxidant capacity.

For the study, 54 male soccer players had randomly received 450 mg daily of hibiscus tea extract, green tea extract, or the food additive maltodextrin.

13. Relieves Menstrual Pain

Hibiscus tea may also provide relief from cramps and menstrual pain. It is thought to be able to restore hormone balance, and therefore potentially lower the severity of menstruation symptoms like depression, mood swings, and overeating.

14. Thirst Quencher

Hibiscus tea is also used to satiate thirst and cool down the body. For this reason, it is popular among athletes and others with high-intensity training regimens. You’ll also find that people often consume iced hibiscus tea.

It is worth noting that since hibiscus tea is a diuretic, it works to flush toxins and excess fluids from the body, and this may promote better performance in athletes.

15. Antibacterial and Antiviral Properties

The antibacterial and antiviral properties of hibiscus tea allow it to fight conditions in which either bacteria or viruses are present.

  • One in vitro study published in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture in 2013 found that hibiscus tea extract inhibited the activity of E. coli (Escherichia coli), a bacteria strain that causes gas, cramping, and diarrhea.
  • Another lab study from 2016 showed that hibiscus fought eight bacteria strains and was even effective against certain medication used to treat bacterial infections.
  • A 2009 study also showed that hibiscus tea extract may have potential against MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus).

Hibiscus tea extract’s antiviral effects were found to be effective in the prevention and treatment of various forms of influenza, including H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAIVs) and low pathogenic AIVs (LPAIVs).

The researchers concluded that the anthocyanin pigment may be responsible for hibiscus tea’s antiviral effect in the study.

Hibiscus Tea Nutrition

As noted, hibiscus tea is loaded with antioxidants such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and zinc. One 100-gram serving of hibiscus contains nearly a third of the vitamin C your body needs in a day. It is also packed with 85% of the vitamin B1 required daily, and almost half of the iron you need each day.

Hibiscus tea is packed full of the essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6. It is also a good source of dietary fiber, protein, vitamin B2, and copper. Hibiscus tea nutrition also features compounds such as malic acid, citric acid, and tartaric acid. The flavonoid glycosides and acidic polysaccharides in hibiscus tea help give it the deep magenta color.

Hibiscus Tea Precautions and Side Effects

Although it is loaded with health benefits, there are some minor hibiscus tea side effects to consider before drinking this antioxidant-rich beverage. It is also best to consult with your primary healthcare provider before using this herbal tea.

Be sure not to combine hibiscus with Tylenol, or any other drug containing acetaminophen. The diuretic effect of the beverage may enhance the speed at which acetaminophen releases from the body. Hibiscus tea may also interact with the diuretic called hydrochlorothiazide.

Hibiscus tea is also toxic for the liver in high doses.

Another concern of hibiscus tea is the potential effect it has on pregnant women since it can induce menstruation. This may be helpful for women with irregular periods; however, it also means women drinking hibiscus tea may experience premature labor.

It is also possible to have a hibiscus allergy as some people develop symptoms like hay fever; sinus problems; and itchy, red eyes. Others will feel intoxicated or experience hibiscus tea hallucinations.

Hibiscus tea consumption is also not safe in people who take a medication for malaria called chloroquine. Since it also reduces blood pressure and blood sugar levels, people with diabetes or on antihypertensive drugs should monitor their blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Final Thoughts on Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus tea is an excellent antioxidant-rich herbal tea that contains a number of health benefits. In this article, we detailed many of the benefits of hibiscus, including its effect on digestion, immune health, and skin health. At the same time, it may be able to treat high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, liver disease, cancer, depression, anxiety, menstrual pain, weight problems, and bacterial and viral infections.

Like most supplements, it is important to purchase hibiscus extract, leaves, or powder from a trusted source. Some suggest purchasing hibiscus extract in an airless pump that hasn’t been exposed to air so you get the full effect of the hibiscus tea.

Overall, hibiscus tea is delicious, especially when served with lemon juice and raw honey, or flavored with cinnamon, ginger, or nutmeg.

Warning for Pregnant ladies or ladies who wish to become pregnant: studies show a danger of starting your menstrual cycle, or an early delivery. Drink at your own risk. This could be better than birth control pills perhaps. Do some research first.

Saint Germain and Mother Mary are assisting Humanity in powerful and brand new ways during this Mystical Month of May. You and I have the ability to exponentially expand their Holy Endeavors by invoking the NEW frequencies of the Violet Fame of Forgiveness and the NEW frequencies of the Resurrection Flame and the Flame of Enlightenment.

By invoking this Sacred Fire from the Heart of our Father-Mother God and breathing it into the physical world of form through our Heart Flame, this incredibly powerful Light will bless the Earth in wondrous ways. As promised by our Father-Mother God, this facet of our Lightwork will be expanded one thousand fold every single day

By observing outer-world appearances, it is obvious that we are moving into a greatly accelerated purging process. This process is usually challenging and often painful and confusing. Saint Germain and Mother Mary are assuring us that through our unified efforts we will make this essential process much less disruptive and distressing for ourselves and the masses of Humanity.

Precious Heart, your Light is needed NOW! If you have the Heart Call to do so, please affirm these invocations on a daily basis, or as often as you are guided to do so, throughout the month of May

(NOTE: The invocation starts at the 7:20 Mark)

Invoking the Violet Flame of Forgiveness

I AM my I AM Presence and I AM One with the I AM Presence of ALL Humanity. As One Energy, Vibration and Consciousness of Pure Divine Love, I invoke the most intensified frequencies of the NEW Violet Flame of Forgiveness that Humanity is capable of receiving.

Saint Germain and the 5th-Dimensional Violet Flame Archangel that is stationed within the aura of every person on Earth, I ask that you blaze the Violet Flame of Forgiveness with the power and might of a thousand Suns in, through and around every thought, feeling, word, action, memory and belief that Humanity has ever expressed in any time frame or dimension, both known and unknown, that is reflecting anything less than Divine Love and the perfection of Heaven on Earth.

Transmute this energy cause, core, effect, record and memory back into its original perfection and seal it in an invincible forcefield of God’s Divine Grace.

Now Beloved I AM Presence and Beloved 5th-Dimensional Violet Flame Archangel, look into my life and the lives of ALL Humanity and see what yet remains to be balanced by us to any person, place, condition or thing we may have wronged at any time, in any way, for any reason whatsoever.

Reach your great loving hands of Light into all of the positively qualified energy we have released throughout our Earthly sojourns. Draw forth one thousand times as much perfection as we have ever done wrong.

Fashion from this substance of perfection a Gift of FORGIVENESS and DIVINE LOVE, whatever is necessary, to balance every debt we have created which still remains unpaid to ANY part of Life.

Beloved I AM Presence and Beloved Violet Flame Archangel, we ask you to FORGIVE every person, place, condition or thing which may have wronged us or Humanity in any way, and balance all debts owed to us by Life everywhere.

Now, with the full power of my I AM Presence, the I AM Presence of ALL Humanity, and the 5th-Dimensional Violet Flame Archangel within every person’s aura…

WE FORGIVE! WE FORGIVE! WE FORGIVE!

ourselves and all Humanity for any misuse of God’s Gift of Life since the beginning of time.

FORGIVE US! FORGIVE US! FORGIVE US!

We are Grateful for the Law of Forgiveness. And we are NOW Loving ALL Life ETERNALLY FREE from the wheel of cause and effect before our miscreations from the past can act, manifest or longer be sustained.

We accept that our Father-Mother God’s Gift of DIVINE GRACE AND FORGIVENESS is being God Victoriously accomplished even as we Call.

We also accept and KNOW that the Violet Flame of Forgiveness is being amplified one thousand fold every single day until this sweet Earth and ALL her Life have completed our Ascension into the 5th-Dimensional Realms of Light on the New Earth.

And so it is! Beloved I AM, Beloved I AM, Beloved I AM That I AM.

Loving I AM Presence –

ENLIGHTENMENT

Beloved I AM Presence, walk through me. Open the door of understanding so I may become increasingly aware of the perfection of the New Earth and of my Father-Mother God’s Golden Flame of Divine Enlightenment which is now blessing all people and all Life at all times.

As I AM growing in awareness, may my questing mind push through the denseness of materiality into the Enlightened Spiritual Consciousness of my I AM Presence. In this Enlightened state of awareness, let my sense of gratitude expand into a welcoming smile, a friendly greeting and an expanding Light. May I look upon all persons with the eyes of Love, knowing each as my friend, my brother or sister and not as a stranger. With this realization, my I AM Presence will spread its radiant Light through my Heart Flame to everyone I meet.

Oh, Loving Mind, thank you for the discovery that the consciousness of Enlightenment and Divine Intelligence live within every person. May the Light of Truth illumine my mind, as I grow in greater awareness that I AM a Beloved Child of God and that ALL my Father-Mother God have is my Divine Birthright.

Beloved I AM Presence, as I place my hand in yours to travel this Earth journey, guide me into doing the simple things that bring happiness to others. Show me how to give wisely of myself and my talents in areas where they are truly needed and acceptable. Let me say with conviction, “I can” and “I will,” as my thoughts dwell on the Ascending Spiral of right thinking, right feeling and right action. As “I can” and “I will” become a part of my Enlightened Consciousness, I open wide the gate of Divine Power within my Immortal Victorious Threefold Heart Flame.

Thank You for the blessings that are mine. Thank You for the opportunities that come my way. May I ever praise and bless, give and receive, Love and be Loved, and rejoice in knowing that the Light of God is Eternally Victorious, and I AM that Light!

I AM One with All That Is, and I rejoice in this Glorious Truth.
And so it is, I AM That I AM.

God Bless You,
Patricia Cota-Robles
