' A steadily increasing body of research has demonstrated that peer victimization — the clinical term for bullying — impacts hundreds of millions of children and teens, with the effects sometimes lasting years and, possibly, decades.

Experiencing chronic peer victimization is associated with lower academic achievement, higher unemployment rates, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, and self-harm and suicidal thoughts.

Most of the research into the neurobiological processes that might contribute to these negative health outcomes has occurred in the past decade, and much of it focused on bullying’s impact on the body’s stress response system.

But a new study shows that bullying can cause changes to the very structure of the adolescent brain — a finding indicative of  "how sinister bullying is,” Rod McCullom reports for Undark. '

reversed
Slowness • Combination • Synergy

leaf

The Guardians are three trees which together act as preservers of our health, possibly even prolonging our lives, by strengthening the immune system and the key organs of the heart and circulatory system, the liver and kidneys. Each of them is a member of the Ogham family of eighteen trees and seven plants that make up this mysterious woodland alphabet that has come to be known as the ‘Druids’ tree language’.

The card shows a Birch tree growing between an Elder and a Hawthorn. The three trees act like guardians of the sacred pool, in which we can see Brooklime, also known as Water Pimpernel. This may be the mysterious Samolus revered by the Druids, according to Pliny.

Upright Meaning   If you have chosen this card, it may indicate that a situation or relationship which seems to be in difficulty can be preserved and strengthened if action is taken. Sometimes, if there is no expectation of a ‘quick fix’, a problem can slowly be turned around over a period of time by a number of – possibly quite small – adjustments. The three Guardians act by gradually strengthening the key organs of the body. Similarly, if you take actions to strengthen specific aspects of a relationship, this will, in time, affect every part of it. Rather than focusing on areas of weakness between you, identify where you do connect well, and try to build on these. Long-term relationships need healthy ‘immune systems’ that can cope with the inevitable stresses that arise between two individuals.

Reversed Meaning   Plants sometimes work best when they are given as a remedy on their own, and sometimes in combination with other plants. If you have chosen this card reversed, it may indicate that you are being called upon to work in a group. Your independence might feel threatened, but it is likely that the synergy generated as a team will be far more effective than if you were to continue to work alone.

Alternatively, the card may suggest that you need to have the confidence in your abilities and the trust in life to slow down and not take on every offer that is made to you. We often find ourselves rushing through life, anxious that if we stop nobody will want us. Generally this is not true, and by slowing down or pausing we give life a chance to show us new directions.

Tonics and Fortifiers

The three Guardians act in some ways like the archetypal family, with the Elder as mother, the Hawthorn as father, and Birch as the young child bringing freshness and renewal. Each tree offers extraordinary gifts.

Elder has grown in Britain for millions of years and, as early as 400 BCE, Hippocrates described it as his ‘medicine chest’. It is associated with the Crone, and in ancient times was both feared and revered. It was linked with death and malicious witchcraft, but also with protection from lightning and witches. These contradictory associations echo the chemical nature of the tree, whose bark and leaves are poisonous, but whose flowers and berries are powerfully healing and fortifying. The berries and blossoms of the Elder make excellent cordial and wine, and its flowerheads can be used in incense. Drinking Elderberry juice regularly stimulates the immune system, relieves stress, helps maintain a healthy circulation and heart and helps prevent hardening of the arteries.

Hawthorn is also known as May, as it flowers at Beltane, filling the hedgerows with blossom. The blood-red haws, or berries, that follow are so good for the heart and circulatory system that the tree has sometimes been called ‘The father of the heart’. In Druidry and folk tradition, the Hawthorn is associated with the world of faery and of sexuality, and it has become one of the most important trees in herbal medicine. The leaves, flowers and berries contain antioxidants that protect the
heart’s tissues. Preparations made from the plant also strengthen the beating of the heart and lower the blood pressure, and taken daily as a tea will protect the heart and circulation.

Birch was one of the first trees to colonize Britain as the ice sheets melted. It is associated in Druidry with cleansing, birth, and new beginnings. Birch switches were used on miscreants – and in Scandinavia on willing sauna participants – to drive out impurities. Cradles were also traditionally made of Birch. The cleansing effect of this eye-catching tree is now known to occur physiologically, too, and the leaves, sap and oil extracted from the bark are all used medicinally. The sap, as well as making a good wine, can be used as a tonic in the Spring and Autumn – particularly to improve protein metabolism and the excretion of waste products from the liver and kidneys. For this reason, the old herbalists prescribed Birch for rheumatism and kidney stones, and it now seems that Birch compounds may be effective in treating cancers and HIV. The leaves and bark may also exert a life-prolonging effect if taken regularly as a tea.

XVII Stars ~ Spider Woman (Reversed)

Hopi Goddess of Thought and Creation

Small things hold the Earth to Heaven.

In the high desert of the American Southwest, Spider Woman is revered as the creator of the world and benefactor of her people. In the mesas of the Hopi, her name is Kokyangwuti (pronounced similar to koh-kyang-woo-tee). For the Pueblo, she is S’ts’tsi’naku (tse-che-nako). She is called Thinking Woman, Old Spider Woman, and Grandmother Spider. Although she is ancient, her power of renewal is shown through her hair, dressed in the whorls of the squash blossom, the symbol of fertility. She draws light and life from darkness.

Spider Woman creates through her thought, through her vision, through the powers of clarity and consciousness, through the powers of a universe that sings inside her. She creates the stars by spinning a web, lacing it with the precious dew, and tossing it into the sky. She creates the stars to shine upon her people in the darkest night. She arranges the constellations to show her people there is meaning in creation. A single star in the sky may appear a small thing, but be significant in its relation to another, through the patterns they make together, and in the feelings the expanse of a starry night evokes.

In the darkness in the beginning of time, Spider Woman is told she is too small and weak to help, yet through intelligence, persistence, and belief, she travels to and returns safely from the Lake of Fire. She succeeds in bringing light and warmth into the world where more imposing animals try and fail. In another tale, she keeps the rising sky from leaving the world entirely by spinning web lines day and night to tie heaven to earth and preserve her creation. Spider Woman saves her people yet again after the destruction of the Third World, when she opens a path through the dome of heaven and leads her people into the Fourth World, the present earth, providing hope and direction through an inner light that shines even in utter darkness.

When Spider Woman appears:

The more you reach for what inspires you, the more your purpose becomes apparent. Saving grace is at hand.

Act in alignment with your beliefs. Believe in what you want to be. Even without a clear sense of direction or a specific goal, doing small good things will illuminate your next steps.

This is not the time to tackle a large problem head on. Use subtlety, humility, and thoughtfulness in your approach. Sense the pattern that exists behind the scenes.

You are part of a network, a luminous, radiant web that connects every living being. Feel your connections, to the ones you love and to your special places on the earth. See these connections shine with clear and flowing light, light that flows through and fills you. Invoke this web in your meditations to send healing lights and energies to those in need.
