I am overwhelmed sometimes by the sheer diversity and quantity of Spider species I encounter. So many! I take a ton of photos and bring them up on my computer hoping to try and identify a couple, and maybe write about who I am seeing out there, but the precious few who I have been successful in identifying are just that, the precious few. Not many at all. It has been hard to find a good field guide to Spiders. A friend at the University of Guelph Arboretum was/is? working on one, and there is a pamphlet put out by the City of Toronto, but I was having trouble finding one with good images, and a good glossary (I need these things - I do not know the nomenclature yet). When I recently I received a copy of Spiders of North America by Sarah Rose I got stoked. It is a hefty book. 624 pages of high quality images from differing angles, details Spider life histories, species profiles of just over 500 species, and range maps. It's full, and a bit of weight which may inhibit some from bringing it into the field with them, but I do like how many species it covers and the information it offers. One of my main critiques though, is that it is not larger. I don't know if anyone has ever made a part 1 and part 2 of a field guide before, but Spiders would be a good topic to try that with someday. Sarah Rose and I spoke about her work as chair of the American Arachnological Society's Common Names Committee, about Spider behaviours such as molting and ballooning, Spider diets, how to photograph Spiders so we can later identify them and bit on range expansion due to climate change. If you haven't already, check out Princeton University Press' other field guides in their series. The titles include guides to Caterpillars, Dragonflies and Damselflies, Bees, Flower flies and so many more.

I'm here to help you monetize your spiritual gifts and love your life. I want you to know that I've been exactly where you are, and I believe in you together. We're awakening the world. (01:11): Hi, my soul family. I'm really excited to break this on down for you because tonight I had a very mystical and magical night and I was inspired to record it for you. So earlier this evening, uh, early evening, I had a meeting with my team and we were discussing events in person events. We haven't done in-person events since before the pandemic, and it's been something that we keep coming back to, but we've been so busy with all the online stuff and building an extraordinary community and doing so much. And there's so much that happens in it. So we keep coming back to events in our meetings because we're going over the topics that we need to discuss. And each time we come to this topic, we kind of get stuck a little bit. And we realize tonight that we're definitely committed to doing events, but we didn't really feel a flow around how or what that looks like or when exactly. (02:02): And so we decided to put it into consciousness, cuz that's what we do whenever we're feeling stuck. We don't keep trying to analyze it and figure it out. We go to the great divine mind and we allow truth to come through. So we decided to do that. We ended the meeting and I decided I was gonna go out on my evening bike ride and do some spiritual scientific prayer and begin to, you know, really contemplate it and allow whatever miracles were to come through. So I got on my bike and I, as soon as I went out my building, I realized it was sprinkling and, and it looked really dark over in the clouds. And I thought, man, I should probably go inside because where I'm at in Palm beach, it, when it rains, it dumps like it's no joke. And so I kind of contemplated for a moment, but I just had this really strong feeling that I needed to go on this bike ride and I needed to do some deep, deep work around the consciousness around events and what that looked like. (03:00): And I really wanted to commune with my heart self and really allow the miracles to come through. So I decided to keep going. So I decided I was just gonna keep going. And I decided to go the direction kind of away from the clouds. And I thought, well, I can maybe outrun a little bit or you know, maybe I can get to a place that I wanna be. And then the storm will come through. So I went across the bridge and yes, it was sprinkling kind of light. And I was coming down and I started doing a little bit of intentional work and I thought, you know what, I'm gonna put it into consciousness. So what I do when I'm doing a spiritual mind treatment, you call it or a spiritual scientific prayer or affirmative prayer. It doesn't matter what you call it, going into consciousness. (03:40): And I set the intention of show me, let me know and bring clarity around these events and what is to happen as far as do I have confirmation, should we wait longer? What is there? And I began to bike ride along. And the first kind of consciousness that came in was about divine signs. And for some reason I kind of thought, why is this conversation coming in about divine signs and signs from the universe? And I began to think as like, do we really believe in signs? You know, from the universe, the universe is just responding to us, the sign, the universe doesn't do anything it's responding to consciousness. Right. And as right as I said that, I went around this little kind of corner on my bike and all of a sudden hundreds and hundreds of dragon flies flew all around me. They flew all around me, all above me. (04:33): And it was this mystical and magical moment. And I stopped my bike because I was in such awe. And I realized right in that moment that I had just asked my higher self about having signs. And so I'm sitting there and for a moment I'm like, oh my gosh, is this source kind of telling me no, there are signs. Right? And then I flash to what's in my book, which is really what we teach, which is serendipity, right? There's a serendipity place that we are in when we're in a confirmation of what we love of that blissful state. And we've all experienced that moments where, where the most magical mystical moments happen. And so I was there for a few moments and I was watching all the dragon flies and I just was, I was giggling, I was literally giggling and I was just looking up at them and just soaking in this moment. (05:29): And the clouds began to come in further and further. And I thought, well, I'm a couple blocks from where I could get coverage, so I better get on my bike and go. So I began to get on my bike and, and the dragonflies kind of swirled around a little bit. And then I kept going a little bit further and sure enough, it began to rain. And I was right next to this open kind of mall area, this beautiful mall. So I decided to take my bike inside. And as I rode my bike right inside, cause there was no one around this dragon fly followed in right next to me. And he flew right next to me and he flew on and I just was just, it was just this beautiful thing. And then right away, the storm came and it thundered and it lightening and it crashed and all this rain came tumbling down like pouring, like pouring. (06:20): Like you, you can't imagine it was pouring like everything like the skies opened and the seas parted. Right. And it came down so strong. And I just sat there just so happy, just be in this mystical experience and just so grateful with not one concern about the rain. I thought, well, you know, it's gonna pass or I can call an Uber. Right. Who cares? I just sat in the beauty of it. I just sat in the beauty of it again, sitting in the beauty. And this is what I do when I go into prayer. It's not about praying to the man in the sky. It's really not even praying to even become something it's really in the miracle of what is, and in sitting in that miracle space, that space of gratitude, that space of the awe, that space of ecstasy, it shifts everything. The rain began to kind of die down. (07:06): Wasn't that long, maybe 20 minutes at the most, this incredible sunset began of these incredible FIA, pinks, orange and blue skies behind. It was the most beautiful, amazing thing. And I got on my bike and I ran, I rode out, I felt like a little kid. There was like these puddles and I was going through the puddles and I couldn't help, but swirl around in circles and look up at the trees. And it was just so beautiful and it began to laugh and giggle again and I'm riding my bike along. It wasn't even half a block and this huge, huge rainbow all the way full rainbow right in front of me. And I was just, I began to have tears of joy because it was this feeling of knowing. I know that I am here on this planet to bring truth. And I know I'm here to do events, to have us come together as a community for us to know the truth for us to really bring this movement forward on such a level so that all the teachers and practitioners and all the coaches can be showcased and they can also come together and, and bring in their voice. (08:13): And so I rode along my bike more and I couldn't help. I had to take some pictures and, and I actually put it on my Instagram tonight. You can go to my story there. And it was so beautiful. I, I don't know if I've ever seen a more beautiful sunset, the pinks and the oranges and the blues behind it and the Palm trees and the puddles on the ground. And I was feel, I felt like I was just flying. I literally felt like a dragon flying through the air with zero weight. And that's the way I feel I get so out of body sometimes. And I realize that there's some distinctions to make here. Okay. There's some really great distinctions to make here. So what I wanna discuss are these three things, how to read the signs from the universe, how to discover the spiritual meaning of signs and how to communicate and get confirmation from source. (09:04): So you can believe anything you want, and we never want to make anyone wrong for their belief systems. Okay. But from a metaphysical perspective, from a science of mind, from a place of understanding consciousness and how it works, we know that the universe only sends us signs that are reflection of where we're at. So for example, in my book, we have a distinction about serendipity versus Zem bla Zem bla, is that the out picturing of what we don't wanna see, it could be, see something horrific or something not good or resistance, or, you know, your relationships going down, feeling stuck, feeling resistance, feeling angst, feeling suffering, right? That's the Zem of the out picture of consciousness. The serendipity is when we're in flow, when we're in a state of non-resistance, when we're in love, we're in that flow state, the currency and all that stuff and things show up butterflies, show up, people show up, you know, these signs and the serendipity of all of it, right. (10:06): That person you thought of two minutes ago happens to call you right in that moment. Right. That's a serendipity moment. Okay. But when people look to the world for signs, they're placing power outside of themselves, meaning that yes, we look to the, to the universal signs. We should at all points in time, not just looking for, you know, the butterfly in the sky, but everything we call it, the mentally equivalent, we call it the vibrational match, wherever we're at. You can look at someone's life. You can look at your life and know exactly where you are. If you're in flow or not in flow, or if you should be somewhere or in a relationship or in that event, because it's either a hell yes or it's a no you're either in flow or you're stuck in resistance. There's just a simple, simple thing called universal law. (10:50): And it works for precision. So what's the spiritual meaning. There is no meaning. It's whatever, meaning you put on it. Yes. There are meanings around things like what is the embodiment of a dragonfly, right? When you look up the meaning of a dragonfly, right? Dragonflies are incredible. They're, they're almost like the butterfly. They come and they're, they live in water for a long time. And then they actually, they, they transform just like a butterfly and they become the dragonfly and they mostly like live most of their life underwater. And then they actually, when they finally bloom, they finally transform. It's a very short-lived life. It's this miraculous time with these beautiful wings, very, very, like, very beautiful, very translucent, very incredible. And when they fly, they fly very fast and straight. Like almost they can go anywhere. It's almost like a helicopter, right? They can, they're so light. (11:44): And so agile, a lot of people will have like tattoos and swords representing through Asian art and different things of, of, of these beautiful dragonflies, because they can do anything they're free. And so what does this mean for you? You know, what does this mean and how to communicate and get confirmation from source? So I can't speak for you. I can't tell you what your answers are to these things. It's against my ethical, spiritual practice to tell you the way it is. But what I can say is how I communicate and how I commune and can get confirmation from source is when my heart and when my intuition and when it just says, hell yes, everything is a confirmation of yes, everything flows. Everything is miraculous. That is a hell. Yes. Okay. And whenever I'm not in flow, when I'm in resistance, my confirmation is when I'm in stuck traffic, when I'm in angst, when I'm frustrated, that means I'm not in alignment with my truth. (12:42): So I'm not gonna look to see some sign to get that confirmation. I can just feel into my body. I don't need any confirmation anywhere. I can just feel into my, my consciousness. I don't need a sign out there, but it's really fun when there's a sign out there, it's really a game to see the dragonflies and know, oh my gosh, I'm in the intention of what one of my greatest dreams is, is to, to have events where we do and live these principles that we teach and transform people's lives and let them shed their old ways, just like the dragonfly and have them bur their true self. Right? Isn't that the point of it, it's said that dragonflies also predict whether they predict also knowing that there is this, this time to seize the moment, because just like the, the dragon flight doesn't have very much time. (13:36): Once they bloom life is precious. It goes by in an instant, especially when we're living our blessed, it just, it's just a beautiful breath. This thing called life. So for you, you might wanna think about where you are. Are you living your truth or are you not, are you loving your life or not? Are you in flow or are you not, are you still stuck in that old skin? Or are you ready to peel it off and let it go and release it and live free? And so I invite you to seize this moment to live your truth. And so my confirmation is to absolutely have events, absolutely speak from stage, absolutely bring truth around the globe. Absolutely. This is what I'm born to do. There's nothing better than being a conduit for divine, being a channel for divine and holding consciousness for my clients and watching their lives transform right before my eyes, when I get a note or message or an email, and someone is confirming how this work has transformed their life and their life will never be the same, their relationships, their family, their health, their lineage, they've healed their ancestral, everything. (14:49): This is why we (14:50): Do what we do. And so I ask you a favor. You're in my community, you're here, you're listening right now. I ask for you to hold in consciousness, the most profound events for our community, the most profound life changing heartfelt events across the globe.

Dragonflies are some of the fastest flying insects in the world. With 360-degree vision, they can eat hundreds of insects per day, including those pesky mosquitoes and other biting insects. Their adaptations for flying are unique among insects and so precise that humans can only dream of being able to someday make machines that fly as well as dragonflies.Dragonflies are similar in structure to an ancient group of insects informally called Griffinflies, which contains some of the largest flying insects to ever live. These dragonfly-like insects had a wing span of 2.5 feet, or 30 inches. That's bigger than a house cat. How did these bugs get so big, and why are they no longer around? That's a question we're still trying to answer. Dragonflies have some unique adaptations to ensure they mate with the correct species, including remarkable variations in the male sex organ, and even a secondary sex organ. Males can be aggressive while mating, which has led to some females living in a totally different habitat than males. In some cases, females mimic males or pretend to be dead to avoid males.

A dragonfly is a flying insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera. Adult dragonflies are characterized by a pair of large, multifaceted compound eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, sometimes with coloured patches, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the closely related damselflies, which make up the other odonatan infraorder (Zygoptera) and are similar in body plan though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold their wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen.Aphylla williamsoni, known generally as the "two-striped forceptail", is a species of clubtails in the family Gomphidae. It is found in North America.

It is really and truly summer now Happy Summer Solstice Season in the Northern Hemisphere. Are your gardens and parks full of the sound and movements of winged life – the fluttering of moths at your white flowers, at the porch or street light each evening? Dragonflies, mosquitos, bumblebees, and flower flies dancing across your flowers and grasses by day? National Pollinator Week is June 20 – 26, and this week we're in conversation with Dr. Monika Egerer, pollination ecologist at the Technical University of Munich sharing more about the importance of well-designed urban gardens for pollinator support. Monika researches the ecology and management of production-oriented ecosystems in and around cities. She pursues an interdisciplinary research approach that analyzes connections between biodiversity, environmental and climate protection, ecosystem services and social-ecological issues in urban agricultural systems. A strong focus of her work is the role of insects and plant biodiversity in urban ecosystems, specifically in the context of habitat management, urbanization and climate change. Seems that our gardens as contributions to urban biodiversity depend on our viewing them as habitats and our embrace of an “agroecological” in which the focus on production for our needs (food, flowers, control) and the needs of other lives (ecology) is key.

“Lakes are cradles for all sorts of babies as they grow up,” I told the group. “How many of you like to play in the mud and water as you grow up wild?” The little ones—only 3 and 4 years old, grinned. One student looked up at his teacher. “I love mud best!” I chuckled in agreement. Then we all transformed ourselves into dragonfly eggs by hugging our knees. We wiggled, and grew, and hatched into crooked-legged-nymphs. The nymph stage of a dragonfly's life is essentially their childhood.
Anal propulsion and rectal throttling. In this episode, we get to both dive into, and soar through, the world of dragonflies. Tom chats with naturalist and dragonfly afficionado Neil Phillips about all things odonata. We discuss the adaptations that make dragonflies the natural world's most succesful predators, explore their lifecycle, and delve into the ancient world of the griffinflies, the dragonfly's ancient predecessor. We explore a little insect existentialism, thinking about the way we make sense of insect lives, and discover the beautiful poem 'Akatombo' or 'Red Dragonfly'.

Today, I will continue talking about the air elementals, or the creatures that belong to the kingdom of air. Not a lot of people are familiar with the concept of elementals. Elementals are the creatures that live around you whether you realize it or not, they are closer to you than any other metaphysical beings.

In the end, I will give you a practice that will help you to connect with the fairy kingdom. 00:00 Let's talk about the air elementals03:02 Fairies and how to work with them14:14 Why fairies are coming back17:34 Pixies and who they are22:11 Connection with the fairy kingdom meditation32:28 Dragonflies and Butterflies and their functions42:54 Pegasus and how to work with them47:08 Pegasus activation meditation48:58 Fairy DNA activation meditationPlease enjoy! #airelementals #airspirits #spirits #spirituality #fairies #pixies #pegasus***Instagram: @thisismariyaofficialWebsite: thisismariya.comYoutube: @thisismariyaofficial***If you enjoyed the podcast, would you please consider living a short review on Apple Podcasts?

According to the American Library Association, the number of individual books challenged in 2021 was 1,597, the highest number since they've been tracking it. In response to this increase in attempted censorship, the New York Public Library is launching an initiative called, "Books for All", which will make e-versions of books like Catcher in the Rye, Stacked, King and the Dragonflies, and Stamped, available to all. President of the NYPL Tony Marx and Lynn Lobash, the NYPL's Assistant Director of Reader Services, join us to discuss the issue of book banning today and the library's role in making sure information is accessible. Plus, we'll take your calls.
Born and raised in St. Thomas of the US Virgin Islands, Kacen Callender is a bestselling and award-winning author of the middle-grade novels Hurricane Child and King and the Dragonflies, the young-adult novels This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story and Felix Ever After, and the adult novel Queen of the Conquered and its forthcoming sequel King of the Rising. They enjoy playing RPG video games in their free time. Kacen currently resides in Philadelphia, PA. Queen of the Conquered synopsis: An ambitious young woman with the power to control minds seeks vengeance against the royals who murdered her family, in a Caribbean-inspired fantasy world embattled by colonial oppression. Sigourney Rose is the only surviving daughter of a noble lineage on the islands of Hans Lollik. When she was a child, her family was murdered by the islands' colonizers, who have massacred and enslaved generations of her people—and now, Sigourney is ready to exact her revenge. When the childless king of the islands declares that he will choose his successor from amongst eligible noble families, Sigourney uses her ability to read and control minds to manipulate her way onto the royal island and into the ranks of the ruling colonizers. But when she arrives, prepared to fight for control of all the islands, Sigourney finds herself the target of a dangerous, unknown magic. Someone is killing off the ruling families to clear a path to the throne. As the bodies pile up and all eyes regard her with suspicion, Sigourney must find allies among her prey and the murderer among her peers... lest she become the next victim.

www.loulabellesfrancofiles.comLindy Viandier chatted to me about her journey from being a nurse in Wales to renovating a 300 year old maison with her French husband in Burgundy.Lindy recalls her mother wearing ‘Evening in Paris' perfume when she was a child. It came in a tiny midnight blue flacon. The label had the French translation, ‘soir de Paris' and the name ‘Bourjois'. Lindy said, "To me this was the height of glamour and fuelled my desire to visit Paris, so when I had the opportunity to visit aged 17, I was thrilled and immediately fell under her spell." Skip over a lifetime in between and Lindy's daughter requested to have a French exchange student come stay. It turned out to be a cultural exchange with both the teenager and her father who Lindy ended up marrying!They now live between Paris and Burgundy, although Lindy is spending much more time in the country house these days. Lindy has called the house ‘Les Libellules' meaning dragonflies as the house has a pond with an abundance of wildlife.Lindy chatted to me about her experience renovating her 300 year old home. As an avid viewer of Escape to the Chateau DIY I was hanging on every word! Lindy said, "let's just say insects feature heavily, as do crumbling walls, and some interesting discoveries." Lindy felt connected to the house straight away, love at first sight, right from when she saw a photo on a property website. Hear Lindy's suggestions for choosing a property in France and more about how her life has changed from a very fast-paced existence in a major city, to living in a sleepy little hamlet where one could walk from one end to the other in ten minutes! The friendships she has made, the sense of strong community in the French countryside, the living without almost all mod cons a whilst renovating the house, living an almost entirely French life married to a Frenchman. Her journey is fascinating and beautifully familiar at the same time. Maybe that's just because I've dreamed about such a life so often in my own mind!With a regular LFF feature of a French recipe and some French music, this is a wonderfully warm chat to help feel as if you've momentarily floated to France. Bonne journée et à bientôt mes amis. Loulabelle xx
The EPA heard from Pittsburgh communities concerned about lead in drinking water. Good news for dragonflies on the Ohio River. Bad news for coal with closures of a coal mine and coal-fired power plant. We tag along on a bike ride that has its own soundtrack.
Wendi Knox is an author, artist and uplifter - she inspires others to rise up out of the muck and find the light. I have never met someone that I had so much in common with...Wendi with an "I", a fellow Pisces, a past Creative Director, and a career in Advertising, and a pet named Blossom. This is a 15 minute story view from a very open 1.5 hour conversation - I do hope you enjoy the "view". Wendi Knox writes, "My soul longed for something more. Unexpectedly, I was forced to find it when I lost my big fat job at 50. Sobbing in my backyard, I asked The Universe, “Am I too old to reinvent myself? Please give me a sign.” I went for a walk and came home to find my yard filled with hundreds of red dragonflies. I learned that dragonflies spend most of their lives crawling at the bottom of a pond. And in the muck, they grow their magical wings. Their story helped transform mine. And inspired me to rise up and find the gifts in my struggles — from losing my job to almost losing my child to addiction." From Muck To Magic is a one-of-a-kind inspirational book. With heart, art and humor, it takes you on a poetic journey from self-doubt to self-love. Within its colorful pages is a powerful blueprint for transformation. And an invitation for us all to rise up from our personal muck to bring our own unique magic into a world that has never needed it more. The book is wonderful for all ages! 20% Discount Code: MAGIC WendiKnox.com WendiCooper.com ClubHouse @wendicooper Music by: Tom Orsi Editing and Narration by: Wendi Cooper C Spot Run Productions All Rights Reserved
