Psychic Shield

We all need to protect ourselves from unwanted energies that we pick up from others, so today I thought I would share with you a modality that is completely mine that you can use on a daily basis to protect yourself in your path of being a witch.

When we pick up others energies, we are taking on their emotions and moods. This shield should be practice at lease once a day, so either in the morning or at night, whichever is best for you.

Start by getting comfortable, and a place you will not be disturbed. Start by closing your eyes and releasing tension or anxiety as much as you can.

Now visualize a purple light surrounding you, starting at the top of your head and then flowing down your entire body, through your heart Chakra down into your feet and then releasing into Mother Earth.

Now remember the purple light will get stronger and stronger and it is filling your body and its origin comes from the Goddess and God of your choice.

Next you will let the purple light come back up into your feet and then it surrounds your entire body into an oval shape, expanding out from your body. As the light forms around your body it encases you and it stretches out for 2 inches, then four inches, then 6 inches out from your body.

Now, affirm this statement: “The power of the Universe has surrounded me. Therefore the purple light around my aura is strong and protected, whereas it will repell any and all unwanted energy from others. I am safe within the boundaries of this purple light and nothing can harm or affect me. So mote it be!”

Now image the purple light going into the Universe, but the protection shield around you will remain enforced.

Now severe the rest of the energy by placing your hands about your head and slowly coming down and touching Mother Earth.

This is a very strong modality that I can up with about six months ago and it is very strong. I use it daily.

Blessed Be,

Melinda

Celery

 

A Poem

By Ogden Nash

Celery, raw
Develops the jaw,
But celery, stewed,
Is more quietly chewed.

 

The above poem is an understated description of the true talents of celery.

It’s an herbaceous plant from the parsley family that actually has a parsley like aroma with a pleasingly bitter taste.

Grow

Home grow celery is crispy, juicy and absolutely delicious!

You can grow celery from seed in soil that has a high level of moisture therefore you need to water frequently. This plant grows throughout winter and summer.

Eat

It is wonderful and juicy when fresh. You can have with chicken, pork, lamb, blue cheese, apples, nuts, cabbage, tomatoes, onions, potatoes and even rice, its just one of those great all-rounders.

Try

Add chopped celery leaf to potatoes or bean salads. Mix with tuna and mayonnaise for a sandwich filling. Cook celery leaf in tomato sauce to serve with pasta. Stir finely chopped celery into celeriac remoulade.

Heal

It can assist in reducing blood pressure as it contains phthalides which can lower stress hormones in the blood and reduce arthritis symptoms. It is known for its cholesterol reducing properties.

It also contains apigenin and has been praised for its properties as an antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacteria, antiviral and antioxidant in Chinese medicine. It can be helpful for kidney problems cystitis and assist in neurogenesis (development of nerve cells).

Magick

The seed of the celery plant can be used to enhance visions. Drinking it as a divination tea to open up the mind and allow for better concentration. I love drinking this tea just before a tarot reading. Drink before bedtime to enhance prophetic dreams, this is one of the main ingredients in Psychic Vision Oil one used in traditional Conjure. You can make your own oil by infusing the seeds in a base oil such as almond oil. Mojo bags made with the celery seed are another way to carry the psychic vision with you, you can place these in your bag, in your pocket or under your pillow.

It is under the rulership of the Mercury, a planet that represents the mind, intellect and all forms of communication.

Marshmallow Root

This plant has been used as food and medicine in Africa for more than 2000 years.

The Greek physician Hippocrates valued it as a wound treatment because if it’s anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Grow

Slow growing plant that is to be sown in autumn, place in trays under a glass, simply recreate a small greenhouse. In spring they should be large enough to plant leaving 45cm between them.

Marshmallow flowers in its second year and develops roots a few years before it is harvested. With the flowers you could make flower essence, a beautiful energy medicine.

I will at some stage write up some basic information for how to make your own flower essence.

Try

In Roman time it was used to stuff sucking pigs. In the meantime if one is not at hand (lol) you could simply boil the marshmallow roots until soft, peel them and fry in butter. It makes a wonderful addition to any vegetable or even meat.

And my favorite…….

Herbal marshmallow Hot Chocolate:

  • 3/4 oz of Marshmallow root dried
  • 9 cups milk (raw is best!)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (good quality)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:

  1. In a saucepan, heat up milk and marshmallow root. Allow to infuse for 30 minutes without bringing to a boil but still very hot. Once complete, strain out marshmallow root (if you did not use a tea bag or tea infuser) and return milk to hot saucepan.
  2. Add sugar, melt, and combine completely.
  3. Add cocoa powder and stir until completely combined.
  4. Add vanilla extract, combine well.
  5. Serve warm with homemade whipped cream or marshmallows . . . the big fluffy kind.

It’s that easy! Serve these delicious hot cocoa on cold winter days after playing outside in the snow, when fighting a cold, or just as a general respiratory health booster for you and your family!

Heal

The leaves are used in tinctures, capsules and teas. They can alleviate a sore throat and dry coughs that occur in the winter months. Teas are wonderful for indigestion, capsules may assist with digestive issues.

As a powerful mucilage plant Marshmallow works wonders in hot chocolate, the recipe is provided above.

Magick

Gathered beneath the full moon this herb can be used to encourage creative energy. As an herb for the dead it can be used for ancestral ceremonies or grown on the graves of the dead.

Burn the dried root to improve psychic abilities and protection.

This herb falls under the planet Venus. I have correlated magickal correspondences for this planet if you choose to use this root for its magick.

The link for this is provided below……

In this article I will be introducing the delicate yet highly aromatic dill.

Dill is a member of the Parsley family and not too distant relative of fennel. I often use the two interchangeably. Although it is indigenous to Asia, it is cultivated now all over the world.

Growing Dill

You can sow this seed annually in rich soil, sheltered from strong winds because of its delicate disposition. You can plant it next to cabbage or onions but NOT next to carrots as the dills root extractions can harm the carrots. Companion planting is always advisable in any garden.

Eat It With

It’s wonderful with smoke fish, seafood, lamb, beef, mushrooms, broad beans, cabbage, carrots, cucumber, potatoes, rice, sour cream, yogurt, eggs and paprika, to flavor pickles and wonderful in salads,

Heal

It is packed with Vitamin A and rich in Vitamin C. It can assist with insomnia, diarrhea, menstrual and respiratory disorders. It can boost your immune system and act as an anti-inflammatory. It is often mentioned in assisting with arthritis because of its anti inflammatory affects.

Try

Making Dill Butter: Beat plenty of chopped dill and a little lemon zest and juice into softened butter, shape into a log, wrap in foil or cling wrap and chill. Slice and serve on top of steak, lamb chops, fish or vegetables.

Magick

Because of its freshness and wonderful medicinal properties, when served up to your guests it can bring on a feeling of well-being.

Dill is an herb for protection it has been used to repel negative energies and black magick. It promotes clarity of mind and gives strength to reason. It’s also been used for falling prey to the beliefs of superstition. In the home and kitchen it can be used for protection and blessings.

How to Understand and Make a Sacred Medicine Wheel by MATEO SOL

When you think of “medicine” what is the first thing that comes to mind?

For many modern people, medicine is associated with drugs, surgical procedures, nurses, dentists, or doctors that all improve one’s physical health. However, “medicine” in many past ancient cultures was understood as an interrelated process of physical and spiritual well-being. Medicine was once thought of as a way of being in harmony with the primal energy of nature, and a way of becoming aware of the personal power within each of us that allows us to become more whole and complete.

Before we based our lives on beliefs and interpretations of “holy scriptures,” we looked to the surrounding world for answers and we observed the rhythm of nature to guide our existence. What we discovered is that life behaves in cycles or circles rather than Cartesian “line” that we perceive time and existence these days. We discovered that the seasons came and went in cycles as did the Sun cycles and Moon phases, and we observed that even living beings like humans, trees and animals worked in cycles of births, death and rebirth.

With this understanding of life came a respect for the sacredness of the circle, and its medicinal …

Update on Lady Beltane

I went to the doctor today, only 2 1/2 day after surgery. He was surprised that I was healing so fast from the knee surgery. A HUGE thank you to everyone who has lit a candle and sent healing. I know it is because of your help that my knee is healing so fast and well. I still have a way to go before I heal completely so I humbly ask that you keep doing whatever it is you were doing to help me heal quicker.

Hopefully tomorrow I will feel up to doing a post or two instead of reblogging Lady Abyss’ post on WOTC. Although there are still a couple of more about Spirit Animals I plan to share with you through reblogging them from WOTC. I not quite up to doing research for posts yet because I am still having to take pain pills and drink my tea mixture to help with the pain which is intensified due to me having fibromyalgia.

Thank you for your love and patience with me while I was not answering emails or tending to the website.

 

P. U. T. for A. H.

As a continuation to my post yesterday I felt the need to share a mantra and prayer I have been using for years after reading the book The Four Agreements. The author Don Miguel Ruiz is a descendant of a long line of Toltec shamans, reading this book did change my whole outlook on my interactions with myself as well as other people. So when I apologized to the person in yesterday’s post I was apologizing to myself so I could put the whole negative situation behind me. Which I have mostly because of what the title of this article stand for. Here is my daily prayer that has help me bring my anger, resentment, negativity in thoughts about others almost to nothingingness. Yes I still get those feelings but first it takes me longer to all myself to feel that way and second I am quicker to recognize when I am feeling like that. I am responsible for what feeling I decide to react with to what someone else has said and/or done to me. No on has the power to make me feel any specific way. Everyone of us has the power over which feeling we use to react to the way we are being treated, spoken about or to. No one can make any of us feel anyway but the way we ourself choose to. Remember we all see the world and the people in our lives through our own heart, mind, spirit and eyes that are unique to us just as every other person living anywhere on Mother Earth sees things in their own unique way.

So here is the prayer I say almost daily to remind myself how I want to choose to react or interact with others. You are welcome to use it as is or tweak it so it fits your own unique self.

May I have

Patience

Understanding and

Tolerance for better

Acceptance of people, places, things, situations, they way people treat me or might talk to or about me so I can live in better

Harmony in my home, family, work, and world.
