Royal Jelly…Hmm, Hmm, Good!

How is it that the Queen Bee in a hive is an average of 42% larger in size and weighs a whopping 60% more than the Worker Bees? And how is it that she, this “giant” bee, lives 40 times longer than her Worker Bee daughters—SEVEN YEARS, as compared to SEVEN WEEKS?

The answer: Royal Jelly, my friends!

Queen bees are made, not born, and their feeding with Royal Jelly is the key to that process. Royal Jelly is a thick, creamy white, supremely nutritious liquid secreted by the hypo-pharryngeal glands of the “nurse bees”. Without this special food, Queens would fail to develop properly, stifling their ability to create and sustain a healthy brood. Oh, and by the way, in the wild, this big girl will produce 2,000 eggs per day with each day’s brood equal to 2 ½ times her own body weight!

You go, girl!

Now, let’s talk about WHAT’S IN Royal Jelly. For starters, Royal Jelly contains an excellent source of nutrients. Biochemically speaking, it is very complex. It is a very rich source of protein and contains eight essential amino acids, vital fatty acids, sugars, sterols and phosphorous compounds, as well as acetylcholine, which is crucial in transmitting messages from cell to cell. It contains gamma globulin, known to stimulate the immune system and fight off infections.

Moving along, it’s no surprise that the vitamin content in Royal Jelly is abundant. Let’s just see what we’ve got here: vitamins A, B-complex (B1, B2, B6, B12, biotin, folic acid, and inositol), C, D, and E..oh, and lest we forget, the B vitamin pantothenic acid, recognized for its ability to reduce stress levels—let’s face it, one can only imagine the stress Queeny endures in order to produce 2,000 eggs per day!

A little side note: I love irony. Do you think the fact that Royal Jelly contains all the essential “B(ee)” vitamins is a coincidence? I think not!

Now for the icing on the Royal Jelly cake: this milky white, creamy goodness also supplies the minerals calcium, copper, iron, phosphorous, potassium, silicon and sulfur!

Nature is perfect. Bees are perfect. Let’s keep them around. Namaste!

DID YOU KNOW….one single ladybug, over its adult life of about one year, can eat up to 5000 aphids….YES, it's time to toss the the synthetic and harmful pesticides and get back to organic gardening! OK, I know there's two here, so that makes 10,000 aphids between 'em!

During a visit to Catalina Island in California, I sat waiting for a tour bus to take me to a hilltop airfield. The day was spectacular; the birds were singing, the flowers were all in full fragrant bloom, the sky was crystal- clear blue and the temperature was a mild 78 degrees. In the midst of all this magic, I noticed these two trees. Any thoughts, captions…?

“Hello, my name is….well, let’s see, I don’t have a name per se, I’m mostly just referred to as a number—a tag, if you will. But, I don’t mind. Currently, I live in a large open pasture in Colorado and I enjoy the freedoms that many of my counterparts do not. What I would like to share with you today is not to ask you to feel sorry for me, as we all know my eventual fate; but, rather, I’d like to offer a suggestion—a gentle prod (pun intended) to my human brethren. You see, when we livestock agree to incarnate into this physical plane called Earth, we have a pretty good idea of what we are here for. Like all sentient beings, our souls have a Divine plan, and while it may not be to build rockets, manufacture cars, or even design the most innovative electronic device known to man, we are here on purpose. We know that, in addition to being the food that is set before others (not just humans), we can also teach others (mostly humans) kindness, respect, compassion and honor. I ask that, though I may be your next meal, you may, in your loving heart, recognize the agreed upon sacrifice that I have made for you. I (we) understand that it will take much time and conscious decision-making on Earth in order for us to no longer incarnate for the purpose of consumption. But in the meantime, this is all we ask: honor us with a small, humble prayer that says: “I thank you, cow spirit, for the giving of your life force for my nourishment; for my enjoyment—I honor your Divine path.” This small, but powerful prayer of gratitude, has an uplifting energy associated with it. We feel it. Might you be willing to do that? If so, we, in turn, thank you…”
