Magical Gaia Vibes: Der Masterplan der Erde für die Menschen by Margarita Arminger

By Margarita Arminger

„Macht euch die Erde untertan!“ hieß zweitausend Jahre lang das wohl missverstandenste göttliche Losungswort der Menschheit. Zurück blieb ein Trümmerhaufen. Eine zutiefst verletzte Erde und verletzte Menschen, die alles Natürliche mit Füßen treten.
Schuld daran ist ein bis heute unbekannter Knick in der Evolution, der überall dort passiert, wo Natur und Kultur nicht harmonisch ineinander übergehen. Er schafft jenes verletzte innere type, das nie erwachsen wird und uns alle als halbe Menschen zurück lässt.
Dabei gäbe es eine Lösung: den Meisterplan der Erde für ihre „Erdlinge“, der unser Leben von heute auf morgen verändern könnte. Nach ihm wartet nicht nur das Okay-Sein des Körpers als Gesundheit auf uns. Nicht nur das Happy-Sein toller Gefühle und geniale Gedanken. Uns steht auch jener Magnetismus zu, der die größtmöglichen Erfolge anzieht.
Darum ist es heute höchst an der Zeit, das wahrscheinlich größte und eigentliche Rätsel der Menschheit lösen: Nicht nur Gaias Schöpfungsstrategie für uns selbst, sondern auch den alles beflügelnden Lebendigkeitsfaktor, der das „Oben“ nur so intestine wie das „Unten“ sein lässt.
Dass dieser so simpel anmutende Spruch ganz zufällig auch das wohl berühmteste Gesetz der Hohen Magie ist, braucht nicht zu verwundern. Schon immer arbeiteten die Magier und die Weisen mit der Erde zusammen. So wie diese mit den Menschen zusammen zu arbeiten beginnt, sobald diese sich als Gehirn des Planeten begreifen.
Genau an diesem Schnittpunkt stehen wir heute. Zunehmend mehr von uns entdecken, dass auch in Sachen Gaia ein guter Egoismus angebracht ist. Jedes kleinstes Stück mehr an wahrer Lebendigkeit für uns, ist ein Stück mehr an Lebendigkeit für Mütterchen Erde. Nur gemeinsam erschaffen wir jene wirklich schöne neue Welt, welche wir uns erträumen. Das ist das neue happen für eine neue Erde!
Dazu jedoch brauchen wir den Lebendigkeitsfaktor. Er herrscht nicht, macht nicht untertan, teilt nicht ein in intestine und Böse. Nach eigenem Belieben können wir auf den Stufen der Lebendigkeit auf und abgleiten. Gaias Magie selbst, Gaia-vibrations sind es, die uns sagen, wie wir am schnellsten die neuen Ufer erreichen. Das Losungswort dabei kann nur heißen: Leben mit der Erde!

Die Honigbiene: Maßnahmenbündel Vitalzucht: Mit Sonderteil: by Steffen Hanniske

By Steffen Hanniske

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Ratgeber - Natur, , Veranstaltung: Imkerei, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Eines ist gewiss: Weder Politik, Forschung noch die Imkerverbände oder aber Berufsimker werden das difficulty des Vitalitätsverlustes der Honigbiene auflösen, weil sie zwangsläufig eigenen Interessenlagen folgen. Interessenlagen, die sich sehr oft an Mehrheiten oder betriebswirtschaftlichen Erwägungen orientieren.

Beides hat dazu geführt, dass es keinen ernst zu nehmenden wilden Honigbienenbestand in Mitteleuropa mehr gibt. Mit der weiteren Folge, dass die Honigbiene absolut abhängig vom Menschen geworden und in Freiheit kaum mehr langfristig überlebensfähig ist.

Damit wirken sich Fehler des Menschen nunmehr absolut populationsprägend aus, used to be im Schadensfalle generell mit dem Wort „Bienensterben“ bezeichnet wird.

Ein weiteres challenge nicht nur unserer Zeit und der Imkerschaft sind Brandmarkungen Andersdenkender, Anprangerungen Andershandelnder und Lächerlichmachungen bis hin zu handfester Anfeindungen derjenigen, die für Ihre Meinung einstehen.

Das hat nicht nur in der Imkerei dazu geführt, dass diejenigen Imker, die nach pragmatischen Selbstversuchen, meist unter erheblichen Kosten und Mühen seit Jahren erfolgreich ohne „Milbenzählen“, Säurebehandlungen und Bienenmedikamente auskommen, ihr Wissen, wenn überhaupt, nur hinter vorgehaltener Hand und unvollständig weitergeben.

Aber eines ist klar geworden: Es gibt kein Allheilmittel gegen Bienensterben und Völkerverluste.

Meistens sind es nämlich die Betriebsweise des Imkers und seine eigenen Zuchtziele, die über die Vitalität seiner Völker entscheiden. Nur selten haben eine bestimmte Bienenherkunft, Bienenrasse, imkerliche Nachbarschaft oder aber das verwendete Beuten- und Wabensystem entscheidenden Einfluss. Es ist nämlich machbar auch ohne exotische Betriebsweisen mit beinahe jeder Biene und jedem Beuten- / Wabensystem den eigenen Bienenbestand zu vitalisieren … wenn guy bereit ist betriebswirtschaftliche Interessen (vorerst) ein wenig in den Hintergrund zu stellen, der weiteren Evolution der Honigbiene auf die Sprünge zu helfen und diese wieder mehr geschehen zu lassen.

Denn auch jüngere wissenschaftliche Versuche haben gezeigt, dass jedenfalls 20 % der Völker (-linien?) selbst mit der Varroa leben können, wenn guy diese nicht wie eine Hochleistungsmilchkuh führt, quält und ausbeutet.

Aber selbst die wie eine Hochleistungsmilchkuh geführte afrikanisierte Biene („Killerbiene“) kann intestine mit der Varroa leben, nicht etwa wegen ihres Temperaments, sondern weil andere Manipulationen unterbleiben.
