Water Message from Dr. Masaru Emoto and Grandmother Tonya Whitedeer

We are honoring the water with Sacred Water Ceremonies around the world. The following message comes from Grandmother Tonya Whitedeer, Sisterhood of the Planetary Water Rites

Greetings Dear Sisters and Brothers:

 We all have been working very hard  spreading the word of how powerful ceremonies are when we wish to place our intentions directed through a higher being for love, gratitude and healing. There have been many challenging situations placed upon our Mother Earth that has affected so many of her children.

Some elders are coming forth with reference to many past prophecies stating that we are now within these mass changes as the Earth has shifted and we are now feeling the repercussions. If we do not live in one of these devastated areas we still can feel the effects because of our great connection for the love and compassion for our Mother Earth.

This is the beginning of a great purification throughout the world, mainly in the Eastern part. This purification is work through divine sources. Our prayers are needed for the people to remain calm and know that they will be held in the arms of our Creator.

We have recently received a message from Dr. Emoto with his request for the World:

To All People Around the World

 Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!

 By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing…even now… It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas.   Human wisdom has not been able to do much to solve the problem, but we are only trying to cool down the anger of radioactive materials in the reactors by discharging water to them. Is there really nothing else to do? I think there is. During over twenty year research of hado measuring and water crystal photographic technology, I have been witnessing that water can turn positive when it receives pure vibration of human prayer no matter how far away it is.Energy formula of Albert Einstein, E=MC2 really means that Energy = number of people and the square of people’s consciousness.

Now is the time to understand the true meaning. Let us all join the prayer ceremony as fellow citizens of the planet earth.   I would like to ask all people, not just in Japan, but all around the world to please help us to find a way out the crisis of this planet!!

The prayer procedure is as follows.

 Name of ceremony:

“Let’s send our thoughts of love and gratitude to all water in the nuclear plants in Fukushima”

 Day and Time:

March 31st, 2011 (Thursday)

12:00 noon in each time zone

 Please say the following phrase:

“The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant, we are sorry to make you suffer.  Please forgive us.  We thank you, and we love you.”  Please say it aloud or in your mind. Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position. Please offer your sincere prayer.  

 Thank you very much from my heart.

 With love and gratitude,

Masaru Emoto  Messenger of Water

AHO, Grandmother Whitedeer

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Epilogue

EPILOGUE

You will learn by studying the monarch butterfly that we need to take care of the littlest of creatures and the plants that sustain them. Plant native perennial host plants, wildflowers and grasses that promote biodiversity. Science has learned that monoculture crops can cause harm to pollinators.  When we create a butterfly garden of plants that sustain the monarch butterfly, in return the butterfly gives us beauty, a sense of wonder and regeneration of the Earth.

I have seen many monarch butterflies come and go during my 65 years. I hope you too will be blessed by seeing monarch butterflies in your own lifetime. This book was written with adults and teachers in mind. Share the pages with children at home, school, Boys and Girls Clubs, Cub Scouts, Brownies, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and at children hospitals. You become the teachers now. Teach the children well.

It is important to stay connected with nature all through our lives. Recommend this book to home gardeners, Master Gardeners, garden clubs, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Americans of all ages are suffering from Nature Deficit Disorder. People are spending more time indoors and losing a connection with the natural world.  We are putting future generations at risk of being deprived of nature that supports life on the Planet Earth. We won’t be given a second chance. It is time to think beyond ourselves and protect the monarch butterfly migration for future generations.

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Butterfly Garden

CREATING A BUTTERFLY GARDEN

 Butterflies need water to drink. An inviting butterfly garden should have a shallow water dish set in the ground, no deeper than ½ inch. A bird bath is too deep. Mostly male butterflies like to puddle in damp sand or mud which contain salts and minerals they need for reproduction. They like to wait here for a mother butterfly to stop by. Allow some moistened soil for puddling. Place a few rocks around the butterfly watering site. This will allow butterflies to perch before and after drinking.

Monarch butterflies also have an appetite for rotting fruit. In season, I often place overripe squashed bananas out in the garden for pollinators.  Butterflies can drink moisture from fruit. Melons are a good source and juicy rinds are appreciated also. All creatures need good nutrition.

If you plant a butterfly garden be sure that there are some shrubs and trees nearby so the butterfly can fly to cover if it needs to. The monarch butterfly is very light and weighs about the same as a maple leaf or about half a gram. I have seen a monarch fly to a tree when it started to rain. Even a rain drop can dislodge a butterfly where it hides among leaves. Sometimes a butterfly can recover if it falls to the ground but more often than not, a wet monarch will be too heavy to fly. A butterfly needs sun to have dry wings.

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Sunflower and Native Bees

SUNFLOWER AND NATIVE BEES

Bees are the number one pollinator and butterflies are the second most important pollinator in the world.

Pollinators are necessary to pollinate flowers, crops and fruits and include native bees, butterflies, moths and bats. It is harmful to use herbicides and insecticides on lawns, farm crops, along roadways and in the garden. Insecticides kill larva and adult insects including bees and butterflies. Herbicides kill weeds often eliminating biodiversity of native plants that pollinators need to survive.

Without pollinators, many of the world’s crop species would disappear. This could include foods such as native squash, potatoes, tomatoes and pumpkins. Only the native bumblebee pollinates potatoes and the bumblebee is being used commercially to pollinate tomatoes.

According to The Xerces Society, Franklin’s bumblebee is already threatened in California. There are hundreds of native bee species in the United States. Bees need a place to live and they need healthy pollen sources. Won’t you make your garden pollinator friendly? In return, native bees and butterflies will delight you by visiting your garden.

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Native Coneflower

NATIVE CONEFLOWER

Native coneflower species are several and include grey headed coneflower (Ratibida pinnata) and pale purple coneflower (Echinacea pallida). The closely related grey headed coneflower has a different Genus name than pale purple coneflower.      

I have noticed monarch butterflies sipping nectar from coneflower. The butterfly uses its long proboscis which is its tongue. The monarch unfurls its straw like proboscis and inserts it deep into a flower where sweet dew like substances reside.

A hint for the photographer, wait until a monarch butterfly is self absorbed in drinking nectar. A butterfly can get absorbed in this act and not pay as much attention to movement around them. A butterfly can see but not like humans. Monarch butterflies have poor eyesight even though they have large compound eyes with thousands of ommatidia. These are structural elements that make up a compound eye, which senses light and images.

MONARCH BUTTERFLY – LA MARIPOSA MONARCA

Monarch butterfly anatomy consists of the following:  Head with a set of tubercles and compound eyes; attached to the thorax are two sets of wings, fore wings, hind wings and six legs; and the butterfly has an abdomen.

Look at the hind wings and you will see two small black pheromone glands. These are called hairpencils. The male butterfly wafts a scent of pheromones over the tubercles of a mother butterfly. Cornell scientists have identified the pheromone as danaidone. The alluring scent and a powdery substance can attach to a female’s antennae and woo a mother butterfly.

Adult monarchs do not fly at night or when it is too hot. Butterflies will seek out shade to rest in. The monarchs cannot fly when it is below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The butterfly starts to fly at approximately 10 a.m. when the sun begins to warm them; they are most active between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Did you know the monarch butterfly can fly approximately 50 miles a day?

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Emerged Butterfly

A NEW EMERGED BUTTERFLY

It was mid morning when the monarch butterfly was born. I had just missed the part where the monarch broke through the chrysalis. I watched as the heavy and wet butterfly clung to a bean stalk. He wouldn’t be able to climb up the stalk because a rabbit had already bitten it off.

I watched as the butterfly painstakingly climbed over to a tall sunflower stalk. Little by little with minute steps the butterfly started to ascend the stalk and reach the needed sunshine in order to dry the soft and wet wings. When dry, wings stiffen and enable a butterfly to fly. The whole process took about three hours.

When the butterfly reached the top of a native sunflower it took its first short flight. Monarchs do not need flower nectar for 24 to 48 hours after they are born. This particular butterfly stayed near the garden for approximately three days. It was joyous to see the same butterfly on the last days of summer. I knew it had to leave shortly because it was born in late August.

 Shortly after its first flight, a native bumblebee was seen collecting pollen from a sunflower. Pollen is taken back to a ground nest to feed the bee’s own larvae. Bees are the number one pollinator and butterflies are the second most important pollinator in the world.

Pollinators are necessary to pollinate flowers, crops and fruits and include native bees, butterflies, moths and bats. It is harmful to use herbicides and insecticides on lawns, farm crops, along roadways and in the garden. Insecticides kill larva and adult insects including bees and butterflies. Herbicides kill weeds often eliminating biodiversity of native plants that pollinators need to survive.

Without pollinators, many of the world’s crop species would disappear. This could include foods such as native squash, potatoes, tomatoes and pumpkins. Only the native bumblebee pollinates potatoes and the bumblebee is being used commercially to pollinate tomatoes. According to The Xerces Society, Franklin’s bumblebee is already threatened in California. There are hundreds of native bee species in the United States. Bees need a place to live and they need healthy pollen sources. Won’t you make your garden pollinator friendly? In return, native bees and butterflies will delight you by visiting your garden.

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Wings in Chrysalis

MONARCH WINGS IN A CHRYSALIS

As the butterfly develops, the chrysalis changes from a jewel like lime green color to a dark color. At this stage the butterfly is developing inside and wings may be visible to the naked eye. As the butterfly nears emergence, the chrysalis turns transparent.

a bean plant grew in the garden with a hanging chrysalis attached to a leaf. A rabbit had eaten a large portion of the bean leaf. For days on end, I visited the bean plant to see how the chrysalis was doing. It was unnerving to witness the fact that the chrysalis was quite exposed now because of the nibbling.  Fortunately the monarch was about to be born and I was at hand to witness the birth of the monarch butterfly during the first three hours of the butterfly’s life.

Monarch Butterfly Chatbook – Chrysalis

CHRYSALIS – CRISALIDA

 When the outer shell of the pupa hardens it is known as a chrysalis (KRIH-sah-lis). The process of changing is known as metamorphosis (meh-tuh-MOR-fuh-sis). It takes approximately 10 days to two weeks before a butterfly emerges. A monarch butterfly goes through four unique stages in its life: egg, larva, pupa and adult butterfly. The caterpillar inside the chrysalis disintegrates into a green liquid which is mysteriously transformed into a monarch butterfly.

The Chrysalis starts off with a beautiful lime green color shell and has a striking band of gold near the top and three gold specks scattered near the bottom. According to Journey North, “The color itself comes from cardenolides in the milkweed that larvae eat.” What purpose the gold markings have is still unknown.
