BLUE INSIDE OUT 🙂
FOOD OF GODS
Once upon a time early in the morning a tired stranger appeared at the steps of the remote Tibetan monastery. He walked from far away to find out about the secret potion of youth. The monk showed to the stranger dry palm leaves which were used by the wise men of the monastery to write the sacred recipe. To make a potion he took a handful of dry chamomile, silver birch buds, immortelle and St. John's wort. He crushed the grassed in a cup and left them till the very late evening. At the sunset the monk continued to make the potion. He poured boiling water to top the grass mixture. After a while he soaked the drink through a piece of clothes. He poured the drink to a cup and added honey, the main ingredient. He asked the stranger to drink the potion and advised not to eat or drink till the morning. At sunrise the monk heated the potion in the water bath and added a spoon of honey into it again. The stranger drank the potion before the started his breakfast. The monk said to the stranger to continue taking the drink every day and mentioned that he, himself drinks same potion for the last 115 years.
The youth potion recipe was found later, in 1971 by the Austrian scientists expedition at one of the Tibetan monasteries. The decoding of the palm leaves ancient writing became a real revolution for that time medicine.
The potions of grasses with honey are the old times recipe of genuine path to youth, longevity, skin revitalizing, toxins removal and physical body general cleansing. It is an active cleansing program at any age. It is extremely effective.
The scientists proved that the Tibetan potion of youth improves our blood circulation, metabolism, restores eye vision and memory but... how did the monks know about this recipe thousands of years ago? How did they know about the magical properties of honey? The knowledge keepers in Tibet reckon that they did not find it by experiments. The exact recipe was copied from the ancient books that told them about the civilizations gone. Ayurveda, the ancient science of life values honey very high. The famous Indian book "Elixir Of Immortality" tells about the drink that gives us immortality and the main ingredient of this drink is honey.
Ancient Greeks considered honey to be Gods' Food. It was pat of the nectar or ambrosia that the immortal Gods of Olympus consumed.
We do not have that many foods that can be placed on the shelves with the label: "Youth Elixir" or " Makropulos Potion " or something that really improves our heath, our looks, and gives us life longevity. Among such products honey takes one of the top places and it is in the top five of such products.
Honey was the source of youth for Egyptian Cleopatra. She was the icon for mane rules of her time. No, she was not gorgeous but she loved herself a lot and she looked after her looks very well. Ancient historian wrote about her book volume on longevity and youth. We only have a few of them that were kept safe. Her best products were donkey fat milk and fragrant honey from Alexandria. Cleopatra used them for the face masks and for the baths. She added hot milk to the bath water and a cup of liquid honey and almond, rose or olive oil. Her skin was tender and smooth after such bath. She also invented a rejuvenating balm. She kept the water in the silver jar, then added dry aloe plant extract and honey. She also mixed fat double cream with honey and oil drops and applied to her facial skin.
Not only Cleopatra can afford such recipe. Any woman can do that if she has double cream, olive oil and honey. Honey assists in this case with the micro-circulation which influences directly the conditions of our facial skin blood vessels.
It is a great knowledge if the person knows exactly what is the right honey and the right bees... yes the honey can be wrong too and we will talk about it later. Honey is not only the longevity elixir but also the drink of super-powers. Northern honey has lots of ferments. Bees especially look better after northern honey as they stay dormant during winter and super good food is important for the right bees. Ferments enhance the quality of such honey. When ferments get to our stomach together with honey they work as catalysts for the honey to get digested very quickly. It gets absorbed into our body very fast. As a result we start sweating. You sweat from the right honey. It is a free energy released that needs to find the way out - it gets out through the sweat. You get warmed up too. Honey is a great energy food, but again: it should be the right honey from the right bees. Linden honey is antibacterial and protects people against flues. Homey with bee propolis helps to active physical body protection functions. It is used for heart diseases and stomach tract diseases. But the real treasure is dyagel honey. Dyagel or Angelica is a very valuable plant. Angelica has a special place in Slavic culture. From the name itself in Latin Angelica it is already seen that this plant is extremely interesting. So the honey you get from this plant is angelic. Slavic people called is dudnik. When the spices were not yet discovered the roots of dyagel were dried, crushed and used as a spice in cooking. Dyagel and the honey from this plant flowers cleanses your blood and revitalizes the body. Which honey properties help in longevity and protect us from sicknesses?
Scientists proved that honey have the same structure as human blood plasma. It contains the microelements that are optimal and perfect for human body. It has 92 chemical compounds and each of them are vital for human health. Vitamins B2, B5, E, C, nicotine and follicle acids, iron, magnesium, and amino-acids, phytoncides and flavonoids. How did that happen that small and ready to bite you insects produce the substance that is close it its chemical compounds to human plasma? What don't we know about bees? Bees built their beehives in the form of the hexagonal prisms. When the scientists started thinking why this form is so good they realised the perfect surface cover is made out of hexagonal prisms. Who told the bees about this geometry? Quarts crystals have the same hexagonal form, the unique mineral that keeps a huge amount of information and generates piezoelectricity or electromagnetic energy of the earth. What does this universal geometry means? More to that: the bee is the creature that lives in the ideal social society that is ruled by the collective mind. Every bee can give her life without any hesitation protecting the interests of her family, her beehive. It is ready to give her life any time and scare the aggressor away. They are the community rules and orders and there are no robotic behavior here: today I am doing this and that.
The ancient civilizations treated bees as sacred animals. The archeological works of Heliopolis, the ancient Egyptian city inside the temple of Ra, the God of Sun found the writings on the wall: Ra was crying and his tears were falling down on Earth and turning into bees. The ancient people believed that honey was the gift of Gods to people. It was given to the people to prolong their lives and to remember the connection of Gods and people and also for the people not to feel lonely on this planet.
Vishnu, the God-creator from the Indian mythology has got the image and shape of the blue bee as a Keeper. he is resting in the Lotus flower cup. What does it mean? Lotus means peace creation / world creation and Vishnu is the world manager: labor, humbleness and recreation of one product from the other: nectar turning into honey. Vishnu gives birth the same way to the world that is around us.
Scientists still do not know the compound of the bee poison: apitoxin. Some parts of its chemical compounds do not have any analogies in nature of this planet. Can bees be a cosmic aliens brought to us by the other intelligent minds? Apitoxin is a complex of oil-like mineral substances, amino-acids and proteins. You can freeze or boil bee poison. It will not change its properties nor its compounds. It is the most powerful disinfectants of Earth. Even when it is diluted in proportion of 1:50,000 apitoxin remain sterile. Interesting that bee poison gets digested by humans with no trace.
People realised the youth properties of honey when they realised that this substance practically doe snot have an expiry date. Any organic matter is kept in honey for many years. Scientists found a jar with honey in the ancient tomb. There were also barley grains inside. This items were from 5-6000 BC. Strange things happen but this grain was planted and was alive!! It actually produced crop too. Honey was used to conserve food. Propolis or bee wax was used to balm the dead bodies in Egypt. We all remember Alexander The Great was wounded with the poisoned arrow in India and passed away in Babylon. He had to be moved and buried in Greece. His body was dipped into the bath of honey and successfully delivered to his mother country.
When God Osiris was send to the Kingdom of Dead his body was covered in honey for keeping it from decomposition. When Osiris passed away the Universe was dipped into chaos. All Gods were in deep mourning. They cried and their tears turned into magical liquid that was later used to embalm the Osiris' body to keep him for the Life after Life. The liquid contained honey, rosin and incenses. Archeologists often find in tombs the jars with honey decorated with bees. Such jars were left with the purpose of use in the Kingdom of Dead. Slavic people also beloved that honey is the connection between the world of people and the world of Gods. So for the dead people to be accepted by Gods after life honey was present at the ceremonies. You can eat honey that is 6000 years old, no fear, there is no expiry date of this product , it never goes off. Honey is immortal in its essence. Slavic people for that reason considered honey to be the ultimate cure to give immortality after death. Honey would take human to the Gods' world. Any current scientific proofs about honey?
Honey was used by Gods as "anabiosis liquid" to help them travel through thousands of "light years". The plasma of immortality was close to Gods' blood. What if they dipped into such baths only to get awoken in centuries after that process? People though were only copying Gods in their actions with their dead and they also thought they would live forever. Is that why they made mummies as a tradition? Can bees simply be a bio-robots to get the required ingredients from the environment. What if Gods still sleep in the lakes of honey only to get awoken from those "waters" when their morning comes.
One ancient legend says: rabbi was visited by the young woman that never smiled. She asked the rabbi to show her the secret of happiness. She begged him on her knees to teach her to get joyful and enjoy life. The wise man looked at the girl with curiosity and gave her a handful of fruit of cylindrical shape. The fruit were of brown color and they were full of sweet and honey-like juice. He asked the girl to eat three fruit daily to cognize the happiness of life. The girl ate the fruit and started smiling. There were no scientists a that times who would explain to the girl there is a hormone of happiness: serotonin. It is the one that is responsible for happiness. There is one way to stimulate the hormone: eat the products that are rich in tryptophan. Our body produces serotonin from this amino-acid. The girl ate the particles of happiness together with the fruit, the dates. Dates are unique plant on our planet. This plant does not have its wild relative in nature. It appeared in its commercial form long time ago in the Middle East and Northern Africa. The archeological findings show date seeds as old as 5,000 BC. Where did the tree come from? All the people who live on these territories think that dates were brought to Earth by Gods. Sumerians believe that the date palm was given to people by Anunnaki, Jewish people - that is was brought to people by the sons of God. Egyptians trust the dates were given to people by God Ra and his daughter Hathor, the Goddess of crops and home fire. Historian Viktor Vostokov heard lots of legends about this tree. He believes that the dates were brought to Earth from space, the same way the wheat was brought. Wheat genetic code is not decoded, not defined yet. So dates are aliens as well. Dates are unique plants as they grow with practically no water. Dates are often called the bread of the dessert by the local people of the East. They were the food of Gods and Pharaohs in the ancient times. The Egyptian tombs are decorated with the images of dates. The recipes that include dates take place in ancient times too. The fruit and its seed was used for many remedies. Date honey was produced front date fruit that was used for the male potency.
Date seeds are very healthy for men. The seeds are crushed and brewed as tea and the effect is amazing after use!
The most famous legend about the date palm is connected to Mohammed, the prophet. When he talked to people he was standing on the palm tree trunk. Later, a different elevation was build for him and Mohammed started talking using the new raise. Suddenly he heard a moan coming from no where. It was a palm left by Mohammed moaning. He used his hands to heal the palm tree. This episode from Koran is explained by the modern theologists: everything alive wants to unite with Allah as well as the palm tree. When Mohammed was standing on the palm the tree was feeling the connection. As soon as he left the palm felt left aside. Only the touch of the prophet returned to the palm its reassurance that it is alive and is still connected to Allah. Muslims believe that the date palm covered Virgin Mary when she gave birth to the Issu, the prophet, or Jesus. According to the legend she reinstated her power during pregnancy and during the birth following her angel's advice: she ate dates. We can remain skeptical about the ancient legends but the modern science proves the legends tell us the right " superstitions".
Oxytocin was found in dates, the product that helps women to recover after giving birth. In ancient times pregnant women and nursing mothers were fed with dates. Probably they knew the properties of those dates and acted based on the knowledge.
Date palm is mentioned in Koran many times and everywhere it is called as "gift of Allah to the people". Mohammed the prophet considered the dates to be an excellent remedy. His followers were believing the same. The first Koran texts were written on the fog tree leaves. Mohammed talked about his favorite tree: "Warm yourself with the dates as they are the blessing from Allah. Dates help you to get rid of your sicknesses as they do not carry sickness... Those who breakfast with seven dates will never get poison and will never get bewitched..."
Dates contain lots of healthy ingredients: dates help to prevent heart diseases. They are that natural remedy from strokes. Healthy people should consume no more than four dates per day. Dates are the longevity fruit too. For people in the East dates are the source of youth. China has the oldest people who eat dates exclusively. There were some date seeds found in old tombs in Middle East, Masada. Some of these seeds were still alive. These seeds were 2,500 years old. They were found in the King Herod's tomb. The small palm that grew out of the date seed was called Methuselah, the Bible hero who lived for almost 1000 years.
Dates are the product of health, longevity and they are the source for our good brain function. Golden dates are most valuable and consumed by many people in Middle East. A Tree Of Life, this is how Chinese called their date tree. Chinese date or unabi ziziphus was used by ancient monks. It is a plant which can be proudly called an elixir of health. The fruit have a unique composition of ingredients that makes the blood vessels elastic. These dates also give men their sexual powers. The drink from dates helped to heal the respiratory system as well. This date was called "chest berry" for this reason.
History is silent about the kind of date Alexander The Great and his soldiers were using. But we know that dates were the main food for Alexander's army for survive the hard trips and battles. Every warrior had to eat 6-7 dates with the 2-3 sips of water from the pure spring before the fight. Dates were the fruit of the winning army. They were light in stomach but gave the warrior the required flexibility, power and agility. Glucose that date contain is the main ingredient for our body energy sources. Alexander's army had these energy dates to recharge their batteries.
Dates are the best energy source among all dry fruit. they contain lots of fructose and sugars which is the energy producer in our body. Dates have a very high glycemic index of the glucose level only compared with beer and cognac. It is a source of instant sugar injection in our body including brain as well.
Eleanor of Aquitaine, the French Queen and the wife of Louis VII and later the Queen of England and the wife of Henry II, who gave birth to Richard the Lionheart . the most influential and richest woman of Middle Ages was extremely beautiful. She had very special relationship with the French poet-troubadour Bernard de Ventadour .He wrote very bright and rare poetry about love. He won her heart with his poetry. Bernard was a palace poet. Bernard was the son of the chef so he did not have a noble title. Troubadour bewitched the queen not only with poetry but with his magical potion that he invented himself. Bernard de Ventadour knew that the main ingredient of the love potions is almond. Not only women use to charm men but also men to seduce women. Every time they met troubadour fed his queen with almonds. This love attraction "method" was so good for Eleanor as it made her even more beautiful. Phoenician people considered the most beautiful Goddess to be Amygdala. and her secret of wisdom and beauty was inside the magical plant: mindal or almond. the tree was named after this Goddess. Latin name of almond is Amygdalus.
Nuts are the most mystical products on Earth. Ancient people used to say that nuts give people wisdom, energy and youth. Nothing appeared on Earth with no reason. A Tree Of Life, this is how it is often called, the walnut tree. It gives you energy and heals you. Herodotus wrote that walnuts have very special life powers. Hippocrates recommended to use them to heal heart, brain, stomach, kidneys and liver. He said that walnut is a treasure of nutrition. Greek saw a panacea remedy from all sicknesses in walnuts. So was the nuts called: The Crop Of Life. Walnut tree carries healing properties not only in walnut but itself but also in the shell of the nut, in its nut dividers-membranes, leaves and flowers. Unriped walnuts contain uniquely large amount of vitamin C (2,500mlg). Such nuts can be penetrated by a common needle to check if the shell is not formed yet. The more ripe is the crop the less vitamin C it contains.
Alexander The Great ate several nuts to start his morning and he told his soldiers that this food doubles his energy. Today nuts are consumed by sportsmen and astronauts, They rejuvenate the tired body and give you vitality. The nuts are good to consume by men especially. Walnut was called in ancient time: a corn of Gods or a kernel of love. It was an aphrodisiac as it made males stronger. Many women used nuts to fire the passion and keep the love fire alive. Marquise De Pompadour , a lover of Ludowick XV was choosing food with lots of attention. Before meeting his lover she would drink a cup of hot chocolate with a piece of her favorite cake. The biscuit contained some bitter almonds. She also ate celery with apples and walnuts for salads. Marquise was the only who could take the king's boredom away. She had lots of role games in mind and entertained her lover very well. She also played instruments and sang just for her king. She looked after herself and always was attractive and charming. She used make up, lots of fashion outfits and of course, nuts, the endless source of love energy!
Priests of Babylon prohibited for the nuts to be consumed by the common people so people would be higher in their thoughts that the rulers. Walnut looks like human brain so the priests thought if you consume walnuts you become wise over the limit. Modern medicine calls walnut a celebration for the brain as if consumed regularly it enhances your memory. Greeks used it to heal headaches.
There are lots of legends about walnuts. One of it is about it antivenin use. Pontus King Mithridates was scared to be poisoned so he prepared a potion that would keep him safe from very vicious poisons. He crushed two walnuts and added two grapes with leaves (in other version they were fig fruit). The mixture had salt added to it. Every morning before consuming any food he ate this mixture. When Romans, headed by Pompous won the king, Pompous found the recipe of this mixture inside his palace. The King wrote: "I can not die peacefully from any poison because of my stupid precautions. I have not predicted the worst of poisons: the army, my kids and my friends betrayal, I, who had the knowledge of so many poisons and was kept safe from them..."
There were some very frightening beliefs about walnuts. There was a walnut tree growing in a small Italian village in 17th century. This tree was called The Witch Tree as there was no plants around that tree growing. The villagers were very angry and they burnt that tree. To their total surprise, the same tree grew from the ashes later.
Walnuts were considered to be witch trees in Medieval times. The oils from the tree leaves killed the life of the plants around the walnut tree. There is no grass under the tree. You can not sleep under this tree either. Your dreams will be very disturbing and you will wake up with very bad mood or with headache.
The king of all nut superstitions though is hazelnut. It is also called forest nut or funduk. It has a power to protect humans from the evil forces. Slavic people used hazelnut to protect them from thunderstorms and lightening. The amulets made out of hazelnut protect them from witchcraft , not only from the bad weather. In Bulgaria the burning hazelnut tree was used to scare away the mermaids from the cradles with new born babies. When the child was straggling to start walking he was slightly bitten with the cane rod with eth words: "Leave the hazelnut, take the dogwood fruit instead..." It was believed that the hazelnut was holding the child back to the world where all children come from. In Bulgaria hazelnut rods were used to heal from many sicknesses. The human was bitten with this rod or a piece of hazelnut wood was applied to the wound. Celt's legends talk about the magic hazelnut shrubs. If a man eats the bird that was pecking on the hazelnuts he would get wisdom and long life. It was believed to be God's plant, the wisdom crop and the crop of druids that gave them special powers.
Why nuts were valued so high? We know now that nuts are very healthy and are the way to longevity. It is a luxury food for your health, a real God's food for any age especially for those over 40 when youth seems to be passing by. All nuts are good for you. They contain lots of proteins as well as oil of highest quality that does not contain any cholesterol. That's the real secret of youth of all nuts.
Pistachio nuts literally translated from Iranian means: laughing nut. the nut got this name because of the little crack in its shell that reminds people of a nice smile. It is called magical nut for its high vitamin E contents and its longevity properties. Vitamin E is a beautiful skin vitamin. The Queen of Sheba prohibited the peasants to eat pistachios. It was a king's food. Many kings and queens favored this nut. These trees were grown in Semiramis Gardens and in King Nebuchadnezzar times.
Cedar takes an honored place in the kingdom of all nuts. People call it the tsar of all forests and the noble in green outfit. People of Babylon thought that cedar was looked after by the God named Ea. he was the God of Water, oceans and seas and the God of other deep waters, lakes and the God of Wisdom. The legend also says that the cedar trees grew in Paradise exclusively. When Adam died his son put three cedar nuts in his month and buried him. Three beautiful trees grew out of these three nuts: cedar tree, pine tree and cedar tree. Cedar is also a magic tree. Cedar tree life is 600-1200 years. Cedar is a good tree for meditation. You can spend three days in meditation under such tree. Each cedar needle projects lots of phytoncides on you so you sit under that tree like under the rain of energy and the cedar gives you this energy freely. Cedar nuts or pine nuts heal you heart and stomach. They make your immune system strong, they are also great for small kids growing fast: they are very good for your nervous and blood systems. It is also believed that cedar nuts can resurrect the dead.
In 17th century Ermak Timofeevich and his Kazaks fought with the tartar Khan Kuchum during the battles for Siberia. Khan Kuchum's army won one of the fights and the Russian side lots of killed and wounded people. The Kazak's had to retrieve and run away. Among many two of the Kazaks were left on the battle field as they were thought to be killed. Local scavengers came to check out the after the battle field and they noticed that these two Kazaks were still alive. they took both men to the village and healed them with the pine nut elixir. Cedar nut is man's nut. Cedar nut's diet made those Russian Siberian men with very strong health. A handful a day is considered as a quantity for your consumption.
Do you remember the famous Hoffmann's fairy tale Nutcracker? It is a very bright tale. It has so much symbolism. Each word and each sentence has its own sacred meaning. The purpose of the main character was to crack the hardest nut Krakatuk (Crackatook). The nut Krakatuk had such a hard shell that an eight-and-forty-pound cannon could drive over without breaking it. Nut symbolizes knowledge and enlightenment. It is also a symbol of living through the hardship of live and leaving them behind and transformation to a new quality of life.
Nuts in general have very hard shell. You can not eat them without applying any effort. Hard nut in German means hard task , complex conditions and circumstances. To solve the problem means cracking the nut. It is quite an equation and as a result: the physical look. The Nutcracker in the tale keeps his king's honor, belief in the future, his dignity and his confidence. He turns into a real prince, a hero, a chosen one and reunites with his inner self.
Let's take Cinderella now. She also found her path at the end of the fairy tale. Charles Perrault 's tale character, God Mother, was helping Cinderella on her journey. In Brothers Grimm's version of the same tale the fairy was in the image of a hazelnut tree. The hazelnut tree grows on her mother's grave and every time Cinderella is in doubt she runs to the tree to seek a good advice. It is a tree that makes all her wishes come true. As a result the girl becomes a queen and gets married to a handsome prince, the dream of every girl.
While searching for your dream the aim is not to turn into a Nutcracker forever. "Only your heart can see" as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry said, - "you can not see the truth with your eyes..." Do not look at the nuts as some obstacles but look deeper and understand what the essence of the nut brings you.
Royal dessert is known very well to the Eastern people. It was served to the tables of sheikhs and sultans before as the ingredients were very expensive. It was prepared often before the dinner of the king with his main wife or before his visit of the harem. The dessert was easy to make and was very nutritional and healthy. It was believed this dish fires the passion, gives powers to men and makes the feelings sharper. The recipe consists of dates, poured honey in ratio 2:1 and added walnuts to the mix. It was a God-like dinner ending.

DAY AFTER DAY DISCOVERIES...
THE FOOD OF GODS
The diary of a British landlord, Sir Robert Williamson keeps one very exciting writing. It is about the ancient, highly prohibited by church ritual he witnessed. It took place at one of the villages in Wales in 1834. The old head of the family was about to pass away but before they called the priest they invited over the "sins eater" to the house. He was one of the last ones who kept the knowledge of the wise men / Volhvs / druids in these area. The ritual of "sins eating" was of course against the church laws. Those who preached these traditions were prosecuted by the church leaders. The man-druid was wearing the low hood that covered his face and he approached the bed of the dying man. The older woman in the family put the big piece of bread on the chest of the man in the bed. The "sins eater" started preaching the magic chants. He took a small linen sack out of his sleeve and picked something from there. While he was reading the ancient text non stop, he spread the piece of bread of the diseased man with the large sparkling crystals. People were standing around the bed in silence for another couple of minutes. The wise man picked up the piece of bread (with the salt on it!!) and left to the side. No one could see him again. The man in the bed suddenly woke up from his sleep, lightened up, and then he became calm and tired. Salt "collected" his sins and the "priest" from the old cast helped him to get rid of the sins.
In old times salt was dearer than gold. Salt was used as taxes, salary and was used as the first money. When people went to discover new lands that was the first thing they were looking for apart from water: salt or chemically speaking: sodium chloride. Who and how told the primitive people that they needed salt? The human body can survive without salt only for a short period of time. The salt cravings are not that obvious as thirst or hunger. The scientists know now that NaCl , known as common salt is required for the humans to absorb their food properly. Just note that our body can not produce it independently. The adult physical body contains around 250g of salt but we use it constantly. Salt keeps the moisture in our cells. Salt was shown to the people. Gods did it. There is an interesting expression in the Bible: "salt testimony". Theologists can not explain it even now. However every sacrifice in any culture on Earth had salt present. Why Gods required salt? Salt Testimony sometimes is explained as "the stamp of eternity". "You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet " (Matthew 5:13) There must be a sacred meaning for this words. How can salt lose its saltiness and its power? What else do not we know about this mineral?
Salt gets formed in crystals. Any crystal keeps a lot of information inside. The crystals are used to transform the energy. Scientists use crystals in computes, in space science and in nano technologies. But how did the ancient magicians knew about this properties of salt? Salt crystals absorb the information. People kept salt in very special containers since the ancient times. Usually they were the wooden boxes that were kept closed. The salt was closed for one reason: no any dark information would be absorbed by the crystals, nor bad energies or negative words. Kitchen place was sacred so salt was looked after very attentively. Crystals would be kept away from any of these.
The magicians knew that the salt powers were neutral. But humans would give salt its positive or negative powers. Salt containers often were kept in the churches during the services and after it would be taken home. Salt absorbed the prayers of many people and their positive powers, higher energies. This sacred salt would be used for different rituals. Such salt was added to the cooking food and to various potions for healing. Such salts were used for the readings too. Take a couple of tea spoons of salt. Put it in your left feast. Ask the question that will go on your subconscious level. What information do you need to know? Then carefully pour out the salt crystals on the black sheet of paper of black table surface. Take a look at the picture that will be formed by salt crystals. If you see a lot of sharp ages - negativity or some unpleasant images (like a snake or evil looking creature) than your wish will not come true. If the images you see will be light and soft with rounded edges (a child, some flowers, the sun or rainbow) then you are on the right way.
Russian naturopath Elena Belenkova collects old traditional remedy recipes. She got many of them that she inherited from her grandmother. Salt is a queen of these recipes. The oldest woman in the family is responsible for working with salt in the family. Such woman is called Bereginya. Each household has its own Bereginya. Beregiya is from the word "berech" means "keep". She is the keeper of knowledge and wisdom. She says: "at Christmas time at 1200am I take a pile of salt, I place a church candle inside this pile and I read prayers on that salt. This salt is considered sacred." She hides this good energy salt in the linen sack and uses it throughout the year. The salt with prayers is placed in many corners in the household especially next to the entrances so the evil people do not enter the house. Such salt in placed under the pillows to get rid of insomnia and bad thoughts. When you have strangers in the house place an open salt container in the centre and the salt will absorb all the negativity from the people.
Black salt was in favor in Russia always. It was called Thursday salt. It was at every table in the old times. The recipe was forgotten for many 100-s of years since that. It was kept in the remote villages in Russia though. Black salt is prepared in the Russian stone stoves, "pech'". Rye bread was taken mixed with the normal salt. Grasses and herbs were added as well as fermenting agents. The dough then would be wrapped in linen and then it would be placed in the oven with birch wood to burn. The bread was baked at 900C degrees. Black salt is a magical powder. Such salt would heal and it was sewed into sacred amulets. The salt would be taken with the travelers to the unknown lands. The oven burn would change the salt molecular structure. Such salt does not absorb water the same way as the light white salt. This salt would be full of potassium, magnesium, and calcium for it has ferments and herbs inside. It is a completely different mineral now. Black salt has a special taste.
The magic bread is made in the Russian Kostromskaya area. The house keeper takes large crystals of the stone salt and adds them to the rye bread in 1:5 ratio. Mint is added to this mix, then dill, oregano, Then the woman bakes it. Such bread smells so delicious. The bread gets ready when it turns dark color. Such bread does have healing properties. It is baked when the winter is almost over and all the food storages got already emptied during the cold times. This rye bread was always a great protector from any viruses. It was giving humans powers and lifting up the mood.
When the salt is present even the air gets healing powers. You can experience this miracle in the salt caves and at the salt water resorts. Artificial salt caves are built nowadays for healing to cure insomnia, arthritis and sore bones. The evaporated water that contains salt crystals rejuvenates the body, helps to heal any respiratory sicknesses and heals any wounds. It also cleanses your body and enhances the work of your immune system.
Closer and closer I am trying to get you to the thought that our natural water was always sea water. Some scientists think that humans and apes had the same relative: amphibian mammal that lived in the ocean many thousands of years ago. Our nature is universal: we feel comfortable in sea water and we feel comfortable in open air, we feel ok in the mountains and at the beach. In Melbourne scientists made a very interesting observation when they researched the DNA of the sea mammals and humans. It appeared that the dolphins are our most close relative that was part of our "branch" in DNA. What is it to do with the salt crystals anyway? We know that there were heaps of other technologically advanced civilizations who lived before us on Earth and it is already well known (not from the school book texts though). Atlantida or Atlantis was one of them. Famous Edgar Cayce describes in details the technologies of our ancestors. This civilization was living on Earth 800,000 years ago. It was an Atlantic civilization , not the Atlantis, the country. One of the cultural centers was at where the Atlantic Ocean is now. This civilization died out long time ago too. Shambhala was another sacred place. It was a quiet place where the Gods left to live as well as the human's teaches. The people who lived before Slavic nation called it "White-Waters" or "Belo-Vodie". The monks of Himalayas believe that there is a stone in the heart of Shambhala called Cintāmaṇi. It is the main and energy centre of our planet. It shines on the island in the centre of the white lake. The white lake is covered by white crystallized salt. By touching and eating salt we somehow switch on to the centre of the information that feeds us.
Salt is not the only one that gives us the "taste of life", There is a mix of the herbs mentioned in some old Armenian manuscripts. The royal family Arshikul was the only knowledge keepers of the secrets of this mixture. If the servants revealed the secrets to the world they would be beheaded. The royal chef was making this mixture of herbs when he was alone. The time opened the secret of the mixture though. The Shambhala grass was one of he ingredients of this mixture. It was fenugreek. This magical spice is mentioned in the manuscripts of the ancient Egypt. Yellow tea in Asia is made out of fenugreek. Sumac was another part of the mixture. Coriander seeds were part of it too. This mixture was served to the table to accompany vegetables and green salads. Tomatoes, bell peppers, capsicum, eggplants, cucumbers, spinach, and many other vegetables by absorbing the aromas of the spice mixture got the unbelievable taste. This Armenian spice mix was sold in Medieval times everywhere from Rome to India.
But the most cosmic properties had the King of all herbs: saffron. It was extremely expensive in old ages. For a pinch of saffron people would sell a woman or a camel. For the handful of this spice one could get a whole caravan with women, camels and goods. One gram of this herb cost the same as gold. It is a real king of the spices. It has high healing properties apart from its high price. It is hard to pick it up. To get one kilo of the spice you need to treat many thousands of the crocus flowers. Saffron is a medical herb. It was first mentioned in Mesopotamia 3000 years BC and it was used to color the clothes. Only the sons of Gods, priests or monks were wearing bright yellow outfits. Saffron has the sun colors. Such people carry unconditional love in their hearts and they are unattached to the material needs. But who has given people such a glorious spice? The ancient Indian legend says: Arhat Madhyântika brought saffron from the skies. He picked it up from the Aroma Hill and seeded it in India.
In Rome the wealth of the person was calculated by the saffron that the person owned. It was a currency indeed. The Roman rulers showed to the peasants their value in the society by saffron. The Roman emperor, Heliogabalus took the spice baths in saffron. Even now such procedure would be quite an expensive treat. Another Roman emperor, Nero asked the servants to splash his path to the world capital (Rome) with the saffron water on his return from Greece to Rome. Well, even now.... but rich people nowadays do more silly things. Trust me!
Saffron was in high value in the 16th century too. The Heads of the Venetian Republic were prohibited to receive any gifts of saffron as it was considered to be a high value bribe of the administration. Saffron had very important place among magicians. Saffron was used to evocate Wind. When saffron was burnt and its ashes were raising up in the air it could evocate Wind and rule it to take a certain direction. Saffron tea was drunk by the magicians to read the future. The tea enhances the extra-sensory abilities. The burnt saffron's smoke has the properties of "moving" things that are "still" The brew with saffron is used to wash hands before the healing ritual starts. It expands and gives power to hands.
No one could resisted the charms of beautiful Aphrodite: not humans nor Gods could resist her. Aphrodite wore a special belt. Her powers of love were in that belt. her belt had delicious aroma. The belt was so magical that even Hera borrowed it sometimes to put her spells on Zeus - apparently it helped in their Gods' rocky relationship. What was the secret of Aphrodite's belt? She sewed in the aromatic cinnamon in her belt. The Goddess descended to Earth to pick up the cinnamon herself as it was a sacred ritual for her. The priests of her temple knew about cinnamon. They grinded the cinnamon and mixed it with lots of herbs to make a very special mixture. The powder then was added to the boiled olive oil and put in the dark place. The mixture was sprayed under knees and on the wrists - the places where the blood veins come close to the surface. The properties of cinnamon were kept as a secret for a long time.
Cinnamon is considered to be the best out of all to evoke sensuality in men. Cinnamon is added to food to attract both males and females. It is a powerful aphrodisiac. Cinnamon literally means: "I am giving you my destiny". It means a lot. This spice has very powerful magical properties. The person who cooks with cinnamon gives his/her life to the person he/she feeds it to. Cinnamon should be considered as number one spice for the romantic dinner. When you add this spice to the dish you get a person's positive energy towards you.
There were cinnamon wars in ancient times over the territories where the spice was growing. Sri Lanka, where cinnamon grows, first was a Portuguese colony. The Portuguese monopolized cinnamon trading from Sri Lanka, Then Holland trade took over. Holland traders started planting the trees so they took the trade professionally for they were not satisfied with the wild cinnamon collection. The crops became richer. British of course dominated the area later. Cinnamon has antiseptic properties as well. It was added to the healing balms. Cinnamon cleanses the body and simulates brain activity. Wise men use cinnamon if the urgent solution was required. Cinnamon is used against flues. If you want your body to get balanced you drink the cinnamon tea. The tea that contains cinnamon, bay leave, ginger, black pepper, chili and cloves has the properties to help humans to stay allure and get energized.
The properties of cinnamon were known before modern humans started using it. Arians who came to Earth from the other star systems gave people this knowledge. Cinnamon's value is in its aroma, taste and in its magical properties. Only Sri Lanka's cinnamon has the highest properties and the Earth does not have any similar trees anywhere in the world.
We often talk now about pneumonia. The causes of it can vary. Let's talk about sbiten. What is it?
Sbiten is made out of
If you drink sbiten especially in the cold season you will never get sick. This drink was used far earlier than tea and coffee were discovered. It is a national Russian drink. Sbiten means "to collect" - collecting all spices and goodness in one pot and brewing it in boiling water. Samovar was the pot for the sbiten. Sbiten was sold in the streets all over the year in any season.
Cinnamon is used in aroma therapy. Its aroma helps to get power and assurance. In perfumery cinnamon gives the effect of aristocratic notes in muscular perfumes. In feminine perfumes cinnamon gives the notes of closed up and pragmatic character. Any flower aroma combined together with cinnamon gets a velvet aroma of "brown fluer". It suits people with rather reserved, attentive and "observant" type of characters. These people never share their impressions to the world and on the world.
Most of the aromas that we use nowadays in perfumery come from the East. Cinnamon and vanilla carry certain information apart from their aroma. Any Western woman that has short hair and wears pants has that feminine Eastern energy inside of her, the energy of the woman that gives pleasures to men. Such women wear the perfumes to show their true side to men: we can be sexual and vulnerable inside as well as the girls with long hair who wear skirts. The aroma gives men information about such women. Such females still carry the charms of a seductive woman inside.
The Old Mayans legend tells us a story that took place in the town of Papatla. It is about the family of an ancient ruler who had a beautiful daughter. The daughter's name was "Morning Star". The noble family did not want their daughter to marry to a common citizen. They made her a priest-ess of the spirits. The Prince spotted the beautiful girl. She fell in love with him too. They decided to escape. The temple workers could not forgive the betray of the priest-girl. They caught the lovers and killed them both. At the place where they were murdered the beautiful shrub grew. The shrub was all covered in ivy the same way the loving woman hugs her man. When the berries appeared on the shrub's branches, the temple workers picked up the berries and delivered them to the temple. The berries smelled amazing! They were vanilla beans.
When Spanish conquered the Aztecs, vanilla was the main commodity of the invaders. Columbus was the first European who experienced vanilla aroma. The spice was added to the chocolate that was given to Columbus by the chief of Aztecs. It was a great honor. In Mexico vanilla was the currency. Vanilla was the tax for the government. It was highly valued for its aroma and the spice was used in religious rituals. It was the main attribute at the weddings. When we use vanilla the lymphatic system gets stimulated , the joy hormones and endorphins appear in our physical body. If you want to impress your guests with the desert, use vanilla, as this way the desert will be remembered. English Queen fell in love with vanilla and asked to use the spice in the cakes that were made for her table. Vanillin now is extracted artificially. But the synthetic analogy is one very poor representation of the plant that collects the energy of the sun. There is no prana and life energy is such substances. In magic vanilla represents woman's purity, attachment and attraction. Female priests and geishas use the oils soaked in vanilla. It is a feminine oil. It matches the chakras that represent art and sensuality. It is the best oil for the erotic massage. Vanilla is responsible for the love opening. It eases the migraines, chronic fatigue, tiredness and depression. In ancient times people noticed that vanilla opens up the conversation and helps to create the mood. Vanilla flower was carried under the dress as a pendant. Vanilla aroma attracts and keeps people close to each other.
When the sales person tries to attract the buyers (s)he uses vanilla aromas. Many of the traders and shop owners use vanilla beans. They hang them in the secret store corners. Many customers stay and buy something for sure and they would not guess why they did it. It is the power of unconscious. Magicians use vanilla for the restoration of energy after the "evil eye" or / and damaging negative energy. Vanilla harmonizes the aura. This spice is widely used by the prophets and future readers. Vanilla stimulates the mind.

After this drink, the grey hair disappeared from his head and he felt young again. He felt so good, the girl have not left his bed for three days and three nights. Cardamon was the main ingredient in his drink. Cardamon is used in magic for sustaining love where it went dead and passion where is was required.

Ludowick XV had a nickname "the well-beloved" for he had so many women in his bed, but Jeanne Bécu, countess du Barry was the one he loved the most and she stayed with him for the longest time out of all hid lovers. The king felt crazy in love about her beauty and attractiveness. The day after their first night he admitted to his friend, Marshal Richelieu, that she taught him such love tricks that he have never known before. No one knew why this attraction suddenly was so strange... From the woman's diary later the historians found out that she made a special potion that made the King so very passionate towards her. The main ingredient of this drink was the root of love or our good and old ginger. She chopped the root and mixed it with sugar and spices and brewed it in boiled water. She also added wine and fruit juice to it to hide her tricks. After love making she was giving this drink to the King. He could not stop making love to her.

Arabian sheikh Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Nefzawi who lived in the 16th century had an eye for good looking women. He wrote a whole volume on the art of seduction. The book is called "Permuted Garden". In his book he pays attention to the sexual passion and the substances that make it last. Spices were the most important ones on his list. Sheikh's morning drink was prepared step by step: cloves and cardamom were added to the water that was put to boil. Just before boiling a pinch of black tea was added to it as well as milk. The drink then was boiling for one minute. Then more black tea was added together with ginger. The nutmeg was also added to the boiling water. The drink was taken off the fire and brewed for longer without the heat. The Sheikh was healthy and great in bed till he was very old.
So basically I gave you some knowledge to spice up your life.
Today we will cook again. We cook a very old recipe. I will use some old spices , among them: Celtic salt, cinnamon and saffron.
The mentioning of the recipe I found on @koroli.i.kapusta insta page. In one of their posts they wrote about a chicken Medieval pie. I modified it a bit because I could. It is not a pie , it is a masterpiece. By recipe it has chicken, almonds, sugar, cinnamon and much more. The @koroli.i.kapusta say : that food, in fact, is very medieval, where the ideal formula for an expensive banquet was: "meat + sugar + spices".

Candied oranges in chocolate with walnuts
🍊 X4 medium size
2 cups sugar brown
💧X1 cup water (sugar + water to boil and cool down)
Slice oranges and soak in sugar water for 2 nights
Oven 100C degrees
2-3 hours with slightly open oven
🍫 chocolate is always better to leave to the experts to make but if you dare... plus I needed a vegan option so:
🥥 coconut butter
A pinch of Himalayan pink salt
Warm up on boiling water bath for 1 min and mix thoroughly
Dip orange slices in melted chocolate and decorate while warm with small pieces of walnuts in cacao powder
Place the orange slices on baking paper and hide in the fridge : two reason for this : 1. For the orange slice to cool down 2. So no one can see them 3. There definitely should be the third reason -oh yes, so YOU can not see them YOURSELF otherwise there will be nothing left to photograph (!!) here we go : process and grand finale
I was making candied orange slices and had some truffle chocolate left overs : walnuts were handy too: so here we go : hand made truffle ball
🥥 coconut butter
Soy 🥛 milk
Cacao powder for shaping the ball
