Ok, I am about to offend some people here, but poppy burning is something I feel very strongly about. Certain people of the Islamic faith have yet again been burning poppys. The question is why are they doing it?
So what’s the answer? Do they just enjoy burning flowers? Do they have tendencies towards arson? Or are they doing it deliberately to offend and upset people?
Remembrance Day is celebrated in many countries around the world, the poppy being used in mainly commonwealth countries. The poppy symbolises the lives that were lost in the first world war. A terrible conflict that resulted in so much death and destruction, and if that wasn’t bad enough, it was followed by another terrible war 30 years later. We now have a remembrance day that reminds us of the destruction. We should never forget how futile war is.
Why would anyone want to disrupt a day when people are remembering what their ancestors did for them, and how they gave their lives? Why should anyone feel that it’s nonsense to remember how terrible war can be? Why would anyone want to offend someone whose family member/s died during a war, whether as a solder or a civilian?
It’s interesting to note that Hitler’s Third Reich had several regiments that were purely Muslim.
On the internet at the moment there are a lot of stories about poppy burning. In many of them the person/people have been charged. But then there seems to be a stupid backlash against the police saying that they are too harsh! Absolute nonsense. These people should be charged, jailed and then thrown out the country. We don’t want them here.
I’ve been told about a woman in the UK who had enough of the poppy burning in her local town. She left pork in the local mosque in revenge. I’m told that she has received 12 months in jail. Absolutely ridiculous. The people burning the poppies are the ones who should be in jail.
As for the pork? Well we shouldn’t be so disrespectful towards pigs.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc.
I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example.
Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover.
The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant.
I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings.
Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
