2012 in review Yellowstar Essentials blog Happy New Year!

What a wild year… from The End of the World, to crazy cancer miracles and so much more…I can hardly keep up with the wild ride we call living in the modern world.

I hope you find 2013 filled with love, laughter, learning, prosperity, health and happiness!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 54,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 12 Film Festivals

Sacred Frankincense curing cancer

This is big news.

I mean huge, world changing news.

I believe essential oils and Sacred Frankincense will be the next biggest thing in the battle of cancer. Image

This year my family received a Christmas miracle. I believe Sacred Frankincense was the catalyst.

I still can’t get over how wonderful this news is. All the prayers, positive mental attitude,  eating right, and everything else that goes along with living healthy were all a part of it. Along with the treatments, this, I believe helped in healing.

I promised I wouldn’t say who, but someone close to me has been taking Sacred Frankincense (2 drops of essential oil in orange juice every morning for 3 months) and has seen dramatic improvement in
health. The bone that was eaten away by tumors from ovarian cancer is literally healing as we speak from this rampant killer that is devastating so much of the world. It is horrific watching someone you love suffer from one of the worst diseases humanity has ever dealt with –
I’ll bet everyone knows someone who has had to deal with this terrible disease.

But there is hope.

And it’s coming from nature. God said that He gave us everything we need here on Earth. And I believe this to be true. Every plant, flower, tree, animal, etc. is here for a reason, and many we still need to figure out what those reasons are.
Some are for healing, and medicines have always been based in nature.
Look at any medicine and it’s source is based in nature.

According to research done by University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Associate Professor H.K. Lin, Ph.D., various species of frankincense (Boswellia)essential oilis unparalleled as a cancer solution.

  • Boswellia carteriinduces bladder tumor cells, meaning that it targets cancerous cells by killing them and leaves the healthy cells alone. (2)
  • Boswellia sacramay be effective foradvanced breast cancers as well as for cancer prevention. (3)
  • Boswellia sacrais a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option for skin cancers like basal cell carcinoma. (4)
  • Boswellia carteriandSantalum album(sandalwood) both kill cancer, but do so in different ways, which suggests that the two taken together has a unique one-two punch strategy that is more effective than taken alone. (5)

Ancient gift of sacred frankincense

Sacred Frankincense was one of the gifts the baby Jesus was given by wise men, and that alone should tell us something. It should be prized as gold.

The Frankincense the wise men gave baby Jesus probably came across the deserts from Oman.

(The BBC’s Jeremy Howell visited the country to ask whether a commodity that was once worth its weight in gold could be reborn as a treatment for cancer.) Read about his journey here.

There are tons of scientific studies going on right now. Here is one:

Boswellia sacra essential oil induces tumor cellspecific apoptosis and suppresses tumor
aggressiveness in cultured human breast cancer cells. Link to biomed central for study in .pdf.

Notes from Jeremy Howell’s trip …Cancer hope

But immunologist Mahmoud Suhail is hoping to open a new chapter in the history of frankincense.

Scientists have observed that there is some agent within frankincense which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. He is trying to find out what this is.

“Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell’s nucleus becomes corrupted,” he says. “It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.

“Frankincense separates the ‘brain’ of the cancerous cell – the nucleus – from the ‘body’ – the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes.”

Working with frankincense could revolutionise the treatment of cancer. Currently, with chemotherapy, doctors blast the area around a tumour to kill the cancer, but that also kills healthy cells, and weakens the patient. Treatment with frankincense could eradicate the cancerous cells alone and let the others live.

The task now is to isolate the agent within frankincense which, apparently, works this wonder. Some ingredients of frankincense are allergenic, so you cannot give a patient the whole thing.

FRANKINCENSE FACTS
Boswellia sacra grows in Oman, Yemen and Somalia . Other Boswellia species grow in Africa and India.
The tree may have been named after John Boswell, the uncle of Samuel Johnson’s biographer
In ancient Egypt frankincense was thought to be sweat of the gods

Dr Suhail (who is originally from Iraq) has teamed up with medical scientists from the University of Oklahoma for the task.

In his laboratory in Salalah, he extracts the essential oil from locally produced frankincense. Then, he separates the oil into its constituent agents, such as Boswellic acid.

“There are 17 active agents in frankincense essential oil,” says Dr Suhail. “We are using a process of elimination. We have cancer sufferers – for example, a horse in South Africa – and we are giving them tiny doses of each agent until we find the one which works.”

“Some scientists think Boswellic acid is the key ingredient. But I think this is wrong. Many other essential oils – like oil from sandalwood – contain Boswellic acid, but they don’t have this effect on cancer cells. So we are starting afresh.”

The trials will take months to conduct and whatever results come out of them will take longer still to be verified. But this is a blink of the eye in the history of frankincense.

Nine thousand years ago, Omanis gathered it and burnt it for its curative and cleansing properties. It could be a key to the medical science of tomorrow.

Jeremy Howell reports for Middle East Business Report on BBC World News.

Now it’s not just any Frankincense that will do. It has something to do with the specific type from Oman. Sacred Frankincense –  Boswellia Sacra is the type most associated with cancer reasearch.

Frankincense has demonstrated ability to kill cancer cells in every organ cell line on which it has been tested, while causing no harm to healthy cells. Now, Frankincense essential oil has been show to specifically disrupt the development of breast cancer cells, with a note in the research abstract that “the essential oil may be effective for advanced breast cancer”.*

Frankincense

Frankincense resin, from which the essential oil is distilled.

In research published in BMC Alternative and Complimentary Medicine, essential oil steam distilled from Boswellia sacra tree resin was used. Frankincense is the dried resin commonly from one of three Boswellia tree species, the others being Boswellia carteri and Boswellia seratta.

Another point brought up by a fellow aromatherapist mentioned the sustainability of this special Frankincense.

 Since tapping the tree for sap (frankincense) might suggest no permanent harm and therefore sustainable; but…. “These over-tapped trees have a pollination rate of around 16 per cent, compared with 80 per cent for a healthy tree. Tapping also makes them more vulnerable to attacks from the longhorn beetle, which lays its eggs under the bark. ” http://www.telegrap h.co.uk/gardenin g/gardeningadvic e/9758581/ What-will- save-the- frankincense- tree.html Management guide for sustainable production of frankincense http://www.cifor. org/publications /pdf_files/ Books/BKassa1101 .pdf

If you are interested in buying sacred Frankincense for use in healing of cancer or other ailments, I recommend using only a very high quality essential oils with the advisement of a professional aromatherapist.

Happy Winter Solstice & #EndoftheWorld day!

dec 21 2012 happy winter solstice and end of the worldHappy Winter Solstice and #EndoftheWorld !! I have a feeling we will all still be here tomorrow lol 🙂

The date December 21, 2012 AD (13.0.0.0.0 in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solstice Sun with the crossing point of the Galactic Equator (Equator of the Milky Way) and the Ecliptic (path of the Sun), that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree. This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands and thousands of years. It will come to resolution at exactly 11:11 am GMT.

In astronomy, the winter solstice is the moment when the earth is at a point in its orbit where one hemisphere is most inclined away from the sun. This causes the sun to appear at its farthest below the celestial equator when viewed from earth. Solstice is a Latin borrowing and means “sun stand”, referring to the appearance that the sun’s noontime elevation change stops its progress, either northerly or southerly. The day of the winter solstice is the shortest day and the longest night of the year.

All you wanted to know about 12/12/12

Happy 12/12/12!!!

happy 12/12/12!

happy 12/12/12!

And remember…it is the last repeating-number date of the century, and just possibly holds a bit of magic according to many…

At 12 mins,12 secs after 12 o’ clock on Dec 12th, the time will be 12:12:12,12/12/12 & 12 days before Christmas!

At least that seems to be the thinking of people the world over who have circled the date on their calendars, to walk down the aisle, go to a Bruce Springsteen-Bon Jovi benefit concert for Superstorm Sandy victims in New York or meditate with the masses for world peace in Auckland, New Zealand.

Concert for Sandy Relief, taking place at Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. The lineup is truly star-studded — from Clapton to McCartney via the Stones, the Who and the Boss, Bruce Springsteen. It’ll be streaming live on nearly 30 websites, including YouTube, MTV.com and Hulu. There are worse ways to spend an evening, and it’s for a good cause.

(Appropriately for such an event, some wags on social media are calling 12/12/12 “National Soundcheck Day.” That is: “one, two. One, two. One, two.”)

Meanwhile, the collaborative film project One Day on Earth is filming again, following on from its successful 10.10.10 and 11.11.11 events. The creators will take any video you care to upload to the site and edit it into a movie showing life around the globe. (To get an idea of what that looks like, check out the similarly excellent Ridley Scott-produced documentary “Life in a Day” on Netflix streaming.)

If you’re in the mood to get hitched, and you’re anywhere near Fort Myers Beach in Florida, you’re in luck. There you will find an event called “Weddings in Paradise,” which The American Academy of Wedding Professionals apparently dubbed the “wedding event of the century.”

Couples can get married for $250 a head, or $500 each if you want to do it on the stroke of 12:12 p.m. The organizers are at pains to point out that it isn’t a Moonie-style mass wedding; every marriage will be conducted individually. That said, the event is expected to break a world record for most marriages in a single day. If you don’t want to go the whole hog, there’s also a Chinese-style mass lantern release at sunset that should at least make for a great Instagram shot.

12/12/12: Twelve must-know facts about last once-in-a-lifetime date this century.

and….

TWELVE NOTABLE TWELVES

12 months in a year.

12 hours on a clock face.

12 inches in a foot.

12 strikes to bowl a perfect game.

12 people have walked on the moon.

12 face cards in a deck.

12 days of Christmas.

12 apostles of Jesus.

12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

12 jurors in felony trials.

12 signs of the Zodiac.

12 pairs of ribs in most humans.

more Meanings of 12/12/12:

The number certainly holds significance in human existence through the millennia, a fact of which there is indisputable evidence:

Apart from there being 12 hours of day and night, and 12 months in the year in the Roman calendar, there 12 signs of the Zodiac, 12 Apostles, 12 days of Christmas, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 gods of Olympus, 12 old testament prophets… you get the idea.

Some say the day symbolizes love, others completeness or fulfillment.

Here are some ways the day is celebrated, dreaded or otherwise acknowledged.

Wedding bells

A much-cited survey conducted by US-based David’s Bridal estimated that around 7,500 brides would be getting hitched in America today — a 1,446 percent increase from 12/12/11.

The New York Times wrote that many couples considered it lucky to get married on repetitive dates, with 07-07-07, 10-10-10 and 11-11-11 each breaking Las Vegas records.

Unsurprisingly, many of those interviewed about their wedding plans by media outlets said it was an easy date to remember, thus lowering the risk that one member of the couple will forget anniversaries.

Regardless, according to USA Today, several states were preparing for a rush on marriages.

For example, a county clerk’s office in Los Angeles was expanding hours to allow people to apply online for licenses ahead of time; while in Seattle, many same-sex couples opted to say “I do” on 12-12-12 instead of 12-9-12, the first chance they were legally allowed to be married.

Doomsday diehards

However, many doomsdayers believe the date 12/12/12 heralds the end of the world, mainly owing to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar.

More pedantic believers in the end-of-the-world, meantime, are convinced that the actual doomsday is on 12/21/12, when the Mayan calendar is set to end.

To allay fears, NASA will join a panel discussion hosted by the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California and, according to the International Business Times, convey a simple message: Dec. 21 poses no threat to the planet.

Besides which, the White House has already promised us it won’t.

Geek patrol

Mathematics fanatics are excited by the sheer number of ways the number 12 can be divided: halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and twelfths.

Russia Today points out that this makes 12/12/12 three times more exciting than “a normal ’12’ day.”

Chinese astrology

The number 12 brings harmony to the yin and yang of Chinese numerology: The number 1 is a yang number ruled by the sun, while 2 is a yin number ruled by the moon, RT wrote.

Getting rich

CNN cited numerology experts as saying 12 — considered a “three” number because the digits add up to three — corresponds with the largest planet, Jupiter (to the sun’s No. 1 and the moon’s No. 2), which means wealth.

“If you’re in a business of trading money, or the buying and selling of anything, tomorrow is a good day to make investments,” Jumaani said Tuesday. “If you want to buy something — property, if you want to buy gold — it’d be a good day.”

(In case you’re wondering, the No. 1 planet is the sun, and the No. 2 planet is the moon.)

Birthday boy

Meanwhile, Alabama teen Kiam Moriya will celebrate his 12th birthday on December 12, 2012 at 12.12pm and been written about in media from London to Sydney.

 

What will you be doing at 12:12 today??? 🙂
