According to Catholic Online, it’s believed that she lived during the second century, in Roman-occupied Syria, where Christianity was outlawed. When a Roman soldier named Victor was tortured after the discovery of his secret Christian faith, Corona decided to publicly profess her Christianity in an act of solidarity. In this telling, the Roman judge Sebastian ultimately had both of them executed. Catholic Online suggests that their remains may lie in Anzù, in northern Italy, at the 11th-century Basilica Sanctuary of Saints Victor and Corona (not far from one of the areas hit hardest by the pandemic).
According to the New York Times, Corona’s relics were brought to Aachen by King Otto III in 997. They were held in a tomb in the Roman Catholic cathedral, built by Emperor Charlemagne in 803 and one of Europe’s oldest, before they were stored in the elaborate shrine in the 20th century.
There are only two kinds of people who seem to relish a national emergency: busybodies and buzzkills. Both take it as their life’s work to prove they know better than the poor hayseed who lives next door.
“This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end… with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality.” ~ Admiral James Stockdale

If people could fully understand on a body, mind level the extent to which propagated fear, control and manipulation have contributed to our trauma and inability to thrive on this Planet, what a difference it would make.
For it is the people collectively who have the biggest power and strength. But, through the use of fear there is weakness and a loss of self-sovereignty.
Fear is spread first by those who rear us, the schools and social protocols, all pushing in on the young to make them conform.
Once conformity happens there is further conditioning that happens through believing that the government has our best interest in mind, believing and trusting the main stream media and all the different professionals who tell us who we are, as if to convince us that we cannot know ourselves without them.
When will we realize it is all within us and not outside of us?
We have all of the answers and can find the answers without giving away our power to those who wish to control us, those who tell us that they have our best interest in mind, but really do not..
Maybe it is time that we begin to question everything in our belief system and make the appropriate changes.
Healing starts with healing our emotional traumas and wounds. When will we embody the knowing that when we heal ourselves, body, mind and spirit, we heal the world?
Every time I saw him he was sure to tell me with much admiration how beautiful I was. It was almost embarrassing how he would follow me with his gaze.
Today I wore three-quarter length sleeves.
My tattoos were showing.
Today he did not tell me how beautiful I was. In fact, he looked with disdain at my arms.
I mentioned this to an acquaintance. He said I was reading too much into it. That my senses could not be correct.
This is how we are taught to ignore our senses, our innate knowing of situations and circumstance. This is the training we receive from our average interaction, with average people.
Trusting our instinct, recognizing the varying responses we receive from others, being aware of the differences within the encounter … these energy transitions are more true than any words could be, yet …
We are told we must be wrong, paranoid, too sensitive.
The truth speaks for itself, regardless of spoken word.
Perceptions are often traditional.
Once he saw my tattoos, he seemed to view me as some sort of woman unworthy of his admiration.
One more “judge” to be avoided.
I spent 50 years without them. Now I am blessed with opportunity to see how people view me, with them.
This is the same reason I cut my hair short occasionally. It weeds out the “judges”, those who jump to the conclusion I must be gay.
This person doesn’t change, only the way she “appears”.
Funny … as in haha, yet it is also very sad to know people are locked in these mind sets.
“Some people have been taught to fear Friday the 13th yet in many indigenous cultures such as the Maya and Mexihca, the number 13 is considered representative of accomplishment, higher consciousness, ancestral memory, and wisdom.”
“In Mesoamerican philosophy, there are 13 heavens (thought to also represent 13 levels of consciousness). There are 13 lunar cycles and 13 major joints in the human body. Men and women are considered to have reached elder hood at age 52, which is the completion of a cycle of four rounds of 13 years each. The 260-day Tonalpohualli (Aztec) divinatory calendar consists of 20 groups of 13-day periods called treceñas which are combined with a series of day signs (Rabbit, Wind, Deer, Rain, etc.). The 13 treceña is associated with the venerable Tlazolteotl, an aspect of the earth mother.”
