"Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible." - Maya Angelo
Holy Mother Marie Paul says Manataka is "predestined in divine and Marian designs"...

Traditionally, the month of February has been the time we celebrate Love. It's the Love Month. The earth is up to its neck in red hearts, chocolate candies, and romantic gifts.
We even send written pages of saturated romantic words to our lover. However, Love is the best thing to celebrate. Why not have it every day of the year? We can do that, you know.
There is only two emotions which make up all other ones: LOVE AND FEAR. Why not feed our Love on a daily basis? Surely we all know the story of the two wolves inside each of us - one is love and one is fear. They are at war with each other. Who wins? - The one you feed.
Time to begin to feed the love wolf and spread that message around to others.
By the way, I am remembering the month of February for another reason. On February 14, Valentines Day, my wife Amanda and I were married 27 years ago. I told my friends that I could never forget our wedding anniversary since it was on Valentines Day.
Looking back on our life together, we have had our shares of setbacks, of losses, of disagreements and your normal routine "hell" which married couples experience.
We are a bit beat up, a little ragged on the edges, but love triumphed after all.
"So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life." —Chief Tecumseh

I have used magnets for healing for probably 25 years at least. I have used magnetic necklaces, bracelets, leg wraps, and magnetic mattress (slept on for 20-25 years). I also have a 5# (Pound) magnet for healing and for making magnetic water that comes from Mother Earth.
To me “Energy” is the currency of life. This could be Natural Energy, Physical Energy, or Spiritual Energy, All is connected and all have to be in balance for you to obtain the essence of a good life. In other words the Hoop of Life contains many Arenas.
We need to be have enough knowledge to use them all. Magnetic Healing is just another way the Creator is here to help us walk our path to perfection as Spirit. Nothing enters Creator’s world without perfection. Is this not what we are trying to obtain.
Some of your sources of energy are: your brain, food, and the Earth’s magnetic field. The problem is -- the Earth’s field is severely depleted – it has been reduced to one half of a gauss. Many years ago, animals, humans walked barefooted, lay on Mother Earth and let the magnetic energy flow through their bodies and it healed them naturally. Back then the magnetic field on Mother Earth was about 10.0. (Gauss a measurement of magnetism). Restoring this geomagnetic field is as important to your health and vitality as the quality of the air, water, and food that you consume. It is important that your body receives an adequate supply of this vital energy source while you sleep.
Dear Family at Manataka,
It seems i have come full circle . A book I read when I first started my return to reunion with the great spirit via the teachings of my good friends the First Nations of the Americas, asked to be picked up off the shelf again . The book is called "The Wind is My Mother" by BearHeart. My soul was wounded and needed medicine ..and now in thanks I offer you tobacco . I cannot be there in person to give it to you ...but i have said a sacred prayer of thanks over it and gently scattered it into the wind and asked the great spirit to make sure my appreciation gets to you . "Helis a gaga" ☆ " goes with medicine". The great spirit wants me to be an instrument of healing where i am & we all have our own medicine but your teachings started my sacred fire within me . Much love and thanks. Martin Manifold (GoodWolf), Liverpool , England UK
