Brains Beetles and Dung

Beetle 1
Brains, Beetles, and Dung

As above so below
said the lightning to the bug

what it means - who should know
say the wise among the smug

the beetle and the brain
from above seem the same

Beetle Images
Beetle 2

The peculiar image captioned as Beetle 1, is the human brain, which is responsible for physical movement. Cute little Beetle 2 is also responsible for physical movement and is utilized by most humans. Beetle 3 is was an Egyptian scarab beetle that legend says is responsible for moving the sun across the sky.

Food Source
It feeds off of whatever the mind and body ingests, which could often be referred to as dung. It feeds off of oil, which is responsible for air pollution and war. Therefore, it feeds off of dung.

It lives in, breeds in and feeds off of dung.
It's a very powerful thing, the brain. Computers have not yet mastered the intricate workings of the brain. It is so powerful, that we have yet to determine all it is capable of.It's a very powerful machine, this beetle, capable of the combined powers of many horses, also known as horsepower in the automotive world.

The scarab's power to come from dung and move the sun, makes it more powerful than the previous two, at least in theory.
The God Factor
The brain is where humans accept or dismiss the concept of God. Others believe that this is the connecting force of God, spirit and the physical human. Regardless of what one believes, those beliefs take place in the brain. Thoughts about God are responsible for the death and destruction of peoples and nations who do not agree with a collective consensus shared by religious groups. The automobile and its food source are worshiped by many, in word and deed. It is worshiped by individuals of all ages, and by most modernized nations. This worship has been responsible for death and destruction via wars that are waged to determine who will control the food source for this machine.

According to the ancient Egyptians, it is sacred because it springs from dung, which is the same thing as coming from nothing, just as God did. The scarab's strength and powers make it nearly synonymous with the Egyptian sun god, Ra. Scarab beetles are designed into charms and amulets that are worn by humans in an effort to bring good luck.

Make Your Own Tooth Whitener

White Sage Ceremonial Powder

Tooth whiteners are expensive and sometimes toxic.

I was quite excited to find this recipe to make your own tooth whitener at

Many of the ingredients have multiple uses and I am looking forward to acquiring them.

I already use Peppermint Essential Oil in my diffuser to help invigorate a floundering metabolism. My daughter uses bentonite clay in her homemade facial mask, and of course we have sea salt.

My white sage is for smudging, so I can't wait to get the powdered form from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Adding the Pin It Button to Blogger

Adding the Pin It button to Blogger has been driving me a bit crazy today. I found the code to insert easy enough, but isolating the exact image url is next to impossible unless you first upload into a Blogger post.

So that's what this is. Now that I've uploaded I can copy the image url to insert in the Pin It code.

Nice Pinit pic but not needed.


The original code I used with the picture above did not work. However, I found the javascript code that did work and I did not need to upload that image after all.

It's a two step process. First you need to backup your template and then insert the javascript link into the template.

Next, you need to copy and paste the javascript code into a widget.

If you're looking for the code and the instructions, you can find them over at

My Favorite Use of Lavender Oil

I love essential oils. My favorite is lavender.

Lavender essential oil is excellent for bedtime because it soothes the soul.

It smells delicious too.

You can use it on your dogs too. My chihuahua was a very nervous little soul. Whenever he would get upset, such as at bath time, I would simply dab some lavender oil on my finger and then gently rub it up the bridge of his nose. I would continue to rub that area as I cradled him in my arms and he would calm down. It was definitely obvious since chihuahuas tremble so much.

Lavender oil also works as an insect repellent. I frequently dab some on my clothing when I am planning to sit outside. It keeps mosquitoes away.

Now here's my favorite use of lavender oil.

Every morning, I drop just one little drop of lavender oil on my nightgown and then roll it up and place it in an air tight bag. This gives my gown that delicious aroma when I put it on at night and also helps calm me down for sleeping. I love it.

Try it.

You can also do this with your pillow case.

You can actually use this method for any item that you wish to infuse with aroma.

Peppermint oil is an excellent "pick me up" fragrance that can be used on articles of clothing.
