Let’s look at a smattering of ideas, shall we?

Well before January 5th, 2016 when Mercury goes Retrograde. Great way to start the year, Well I just discovered that, so moving forward. Doreen says, the angels say, “we are going through energy reassignment.” My friend has been telling me that as well.

Here is Anna Merkaba at Sacred Ascension‘s take:

“Beginning December 25th, 2015 with Uranus stationing direct, all major planets in our solar system will be moving direct/forward, Manifestations can be quickened during this time.

Through the planetary alignments you shall feel a difference in your understanding of self. You shall be presented with various outcomes and timelines from which to choose from in order to continue your mission here on earth, and the timelines that you shall see, shall be seen by all and selected by all whom you are to be walking with on your path.  A mutual cognition of a new reality structure and a mutual agreement upon the timeline and experiences to be had shall be made…

…For through fully aligning yourself with the Fifth Dimensional frequencies you shall then be able to manifest the realities of your choice! You shall then be able to fully move into  a new phase, whereby all the senses of your present cognition and those unbeknownst to you yet, shall activate and allow you to see beyond the veil, allowing you to experience a different type of reality of BEing, allowing you to walk through veil of forgetfulness arriving at the very core of your own being, communicating freely with those of the higher dimensions and those of the third dimensional earth…

…The acquisition of new technological prowess has allowed humanity to enter a new era of technologically driven automation. And it is through the technology sector of your world, that your earth shall see a rise in new biological structures which will allow you to propel the knowing of your true origins and agendas placed before you by your higher selves upon the entrance into the Matrix System of Planet X…

For through the knowing of your past the knowing of your the true origins, humanity shall be able to take the final step into the destination of full awakening, into the destination of full awakening to that which they are, and propel themselves further still…

….It is through the new seedings, who shall walk freely amongst humans, carrying the collective consciousness of all who have come and gone. It is through these new beings the “new kids”, who shall transform said energies and absorb said energies and erase the past in human cognitive understanding, that the change that you all are longing to uphold shall take place.

It is through your endeavors and the endeavors of your kind shall the earthlings finally be able to grasp the understanding of Karma, and release it once and for all from their memory banks. And it is through the endeavors of each and every single soul presently occupying time and space continuum on the planet known as Gaia that the experiment of the 3rd dimension shall come to an end…”

Monsters

 Scary Monsters

There is a continuance on the Inner Child Challenge it just doesn’t seem to be over. The signs, synchronous occurrences and emotions that have arisen, are a clear indication that the process is still unfolding. The great thing is that I have the maturity and spiritual tools, and knowledge to recognize them and their origins as they arise. I really sort of avoided it in the last post but, our Inner Children have monsters in their closet.  I Love Monsters Inc. which is very appropriate for the discussion. So of mine have come out and I am really not that scared of them, but, I did not realize so much of them remained deep in the psyche of my Inner Child.

On Sunday I attended a grand party of friends and musicians playing and we had a fantastic time. Me a little too fantastic. I had been wanting to have a few drinks and I just never do. So this day I did, oh brother did I pay. I was purging heavily for a spell about 2 AM, my head pounding, by 8 AM i was fine. I was sharing this with my good friend and she says “oh well that makes sense that there was a Neptune aspect that would imply overindulgence, and purging without Ayahuasca with Jupiter going into Virgo, could be the release of Mars male ego energy residuals,” she also told me to nurture my feminine side. This all made sense to me and then today I see a curious article Lindsay Lohan says “Ayahuasca Changed My Life.” It was interesting, so I followed up with Sting talking of his experience. Down the Rabbit Hole I go. Which led me to a documentary you may have seen, Metamorphosis- Ayahuasca Documentary. I have friends that have ventured to the Amazon for this sacred ceremonial medicine so I had some understanding. What really strikes me here is the stuff that is hidden in the psyche that comes forth. I had tears all throughout the film. It shows some deep healing work with the Inner Child. It is a powerful documentary. It is my belief that this kind of work that is done without Ayahuasca is easy to back away from and not continue. If one makes the kind of commitment made to go to the Amazon, no matter how terrifying the work, you will persevere. I am not saying that I am making that commitment but I can certainly see the spiritual benefit of that journey of healing. This is really a full circle moment, the Ayahuasca Ceremony center is called The Blue Morpho, Shamanic Ayahuasca & Sacred Plant Retreat, prior to beginning this blog I had many visions of the Blue Morpho butterfly, which is how I came to this name. I am not sure what this all means, I know that fellow blogger Trina, at Akosmopolite shared her experience and found it transcendent. I also saw the film, The Blue Butterfly, years ago, that was a kids healing journey, it is a great film.

All this and the 888 Lions Gate Portal….whoa….its been very interesting stuff, but I got this. The journey continues.

Blessed Be

I would like to wish a blessed happy Samhain  to all beloved Pagan friends. Most of my best friends have all been Pagan. I am not so much in this life but many others and with my birthday, October 30th, I have always identified as from a Pagan world.

I would like you all to visit a great Pagan blogger and my Favorite Witch, Sammiwithch at The Life and Times of a Forever Witch.

She has some great Pagan friend bloggers, so you can check them out too.

If like me, you were a witch in a past life and want to know more visit my friend Karen Kubicko, and she can tell you about your past life.

Samhain

The fields are bare, the leaves have fallen from the trees, and the skies are going gray and cold. It is the time of year when the earth has died and gone dormant. Every year on October 31 (or May 1, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) the Sabbat we call Samhain presents us with the opportunity to once more celebrate the cycle of death and rebirth. For many Pagan and Wiccan traditions, Samhain is a time to reconnect with our ancestors, and honor those who have died. This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit realm is thin, so it’s the perfect time of year to make contact with the dead.

A Prayer for the Final Harvest

Corn has been shucked,
grain has been threshed,
herbs have been hung to dry.
Grapes have been pressed,
potatoes have been dug,
beans have been shelled and canned.
It is the harvest season,
and food is ready for winter.
We will eat, and we will live,
and we will be grateful.

Blessed Be Beloveds!

Sunday Morning Java

It Sunday morning somewhere, at least it is here. lol I thought I would take a moment while having my coffee (which is very good) to update my friends here in the Word Press blogasphere. Two weeks of school and well underway, I will be finishing up my online Psychology class this week, and my online History class next week. Thank Goodness! So much reading, tension has let up a bit but menopause has not. Yuck, being a crone sucks. I desperately need my herbs Chaste tree extract, and just my luck the only health food store in town was closed yesterday due to power outage. Really?

Fall is in the air, last night it was actually a bit chilly outside, so exciting. I have been considering buying a scooter to commute to school. Scooters are great on gas and inexpensive. I can either buy a clunker of a car that would need repairs and drink gas or buy a brand new scooter that gets 80 miles per gallon? My only concerns are safety and weather. So that is about it. I had to select a play and I am not so sure I like the one I chose. We shall see. Much love blogger buddies.

Happy Fall Sunday!

From Roger’s Garden

 

Basil & Tomato Salad

Roger’s vegetable garden on the south side of the house, just up the hill from the Beverly Design Center,  and down the hill from the Sunset Strip, had a grape vine, fresh tomatoes, Serrano chili pepper, red chili peppers, basil, rosemary and mint. Below the vegetables were rose bushes and day lily’s. It was private yet just feet from Santa Monica and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. On one of the many days I stayed there when he and his husband were in Fiji, Puerto Rico, Brazil or some other tropical destination, I would make dinner from the garden.

Ingredients:

4-6 Vine Ripe Tomatoes

Olive Oil

Sea Salt

Balsamic Vinegar

1/3 cup Fresh Basil chopped

Directions:

Chop the tomatoes into relatively small chunks.  Add the basil. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil over mixture and then sea salt to taste.  I also like black pepper although I sometimes added minced fresh pepper from the garden, even some mint.

Or for a Caprese Salad, slice them and layer with circle slices of soft mozzarella cheese and whole basil leaves. Drizzle with Balslmaic vinaigrette. Roger always had some really good expensive Balslmaic. Lucky Me.

Elementals I Have Known

I have had some light hearted fun talking about fairies. I certainly do believe they exist but most likely it requires a sort of phase shift to see them. A child has no veils or hardened paradigms to restrict their perception. I believe fairies are in our collective consciousness as we have a deep subconscious memory of worlds where they exist. Some may believe that stories like, The Lord of the Rings, Eragon, The Wizard of Oz and many Fairy Tales are merely works of fiction. I do not. I believe these stories resonate with us in a knowing way, and when we visit these worlds through the stories they are easily manifested visions on our inner screens.

In my spiritual studies, which has run the gamut, I have studied nature elementals as well as worked with them.  If you do not know the names of the elementals of the Four Elements, I will tell you. Earth: The Gnomes & the Pygmies, Fire: The Salamanders, Water: The Undines and the Nereids and Air: Sylphs and Sylphides. I was going to write more but when looking for images I found a fantastic blog post, which is where I got the above picture. The blog is in Spanish so use your google translator, unless you read Spanish. I will link it below. Really though it is fantastic.

Instead I am going to share my first hand experience with them. My experiences have been random and varied and usually in a somewhat altered state or in a conscious connection with nature. I have met them in meditations which as well; however I am going to share  some other incidences. One of the things I do is trust.

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.”
Albert Einstein

I used to house sit for my best friend (the one who passed away) his house in West Hollywood had a huge Fairy Tree in Front and he loved plants and many animals, so there was a vegetable garden, and fig trees, every manor of plants and flowers. Not to mention the butterflies, dragon flies, squirrels, and birds. In the spring and summer I would water the garden. The water from the hose as it arched made rainbows and the plants would talk to me, inspire me, encourage me and thank me. One day a very psychic friend of mine was visiting  me there and we were walking around outside. There was a gigantic schefflera, it looked new it was so green and clean, we both were standing in front of it, I reached out to touch it as did she, we both stopped simultaneously, she said “that plant just told me not to touch it.” I had heard the same thing. lol

Some years earlier, I was visiting the awesome Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park near Big Sur in California, (I will link it below) This place you can feel nature, the great Red Wood Trees and waterfalls, river streams, it is just Wow! I love rocks and tend to pick them up, I picked this shiny wet rock from the stream and I heard, in my mind, “Put me back.” I stopped looked at the rock and said “OK” and put it back. Did a rock speak to me? I think so. I would have rather been in that stream than in a Los Angeles apartment.

I will save the others for later. If you get a chance and you are away from the city, the meteors are out.

Lemongrass

Most fresh herbs have you at hello with the beguiling shape of their leaves, their singular texture, their tempting fragrance. But lemongrass (also called citronella root) is different. It’s tough, but hidden within each fibrous, foot-long stalk of this Southeast Asian grass lurks incomparable character: It’s floral without being cloying, lemony without being tart—those lemony notes come from the same compound in lemon zest. Lop off the spiky tops (use them to infuse a pot of rice or as grilling skewers) and peel away the tough outer layers of white bottom stalk. Crush, slice, or mince those four inches of pale bottom, and lemongrass will reveal itself. It plays especially well with garlic, onion, and ginger, the flavors that often partner it in Southeast Asian recipes. Lemongrass is like no other herb in the world, and in cooking, here’s just no substitute.

Health Matters:

Practitioners of natural medicine prize lemongrass for its ability to relieve fever, muscle spasms, and muscle cramps. It’s also reputed to help cure an upset stomach and headaches. Lemongrass is used as an antiseptic, as well. It’s thought to help relieve oily skin and to promote healthy-looking hair.

How to Buy and Store:

Choose whole, firm stalks that are as unblemished as possible, with a good four inches of thick white bottom stalk. Avoid dried or pre-packaged (some stores mistakenly wrap and sell the green part, tossing the white bit). Wrapped in plastic and kept dry, lemongrass will last for at least ten days in the fridge.

3 Quick Ways to Use Lemongrass:

Salad: Toss minced lemongrass with lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, minced shallot, hot sauce, and sliced Napa cabbage.
Soup: Simmer sliced lemongrass in chicken broth with garlic and ginger. Strain; add shredded chicken, rice noodles, lime juice, and cilantro. (My Favorite when I have a head cold) Thai Tom Lun Soup
Shellfish: Combine white wine, chopped lemongrass, chopped shallots, and crushed red pepper. Add two pounds of mussels; cover and steam until all shells have opened.

Benefits of Ginseng For Women

 

Benefits of Ginseng For Women

The benefits of ginseng for women cannot be overlooked in the modern world. It has been used for centuries to treat all manner of disorders and is a very popular herbal remedy with both men and women. It is often taken in capsule form or as a tea.

It is a widely-used herb, particularly in Chinese medicine. It comes in three varieties – American, Asian and Siberian.

The American variety is known as “cooling” ginseng. The Asian variety is also known as red ginseng. It is a stronger type and more warming and energy giving. Siberian ginseng comes from the same family of plants as the American and Asian varieties but is not a true ginseng.

Ginseng health benefits include:

  • Regulation of menstruation and PMS. Ginseng has hormone-balancing qualities, which is useful for women in the early stages of the menopause, as it regulates estrogen production from the ovaries. The American variety of ginseng is recommended for those suffering from hot flashes due to its ‘cooling’ qualities.
  • Anti-aging properties. A number of skin creams now include ginseng in their list of ingredients. It has a toning effect on the skin and can help to balance oil production within the skin.
  • The increase of the libido. Women frequently find that their libido diminishes during menopause, and ginseng can help to stimulate the hormones that regulate this. Men have for many years used ginseng to combat similar problems.
  • Fighting colds and infections. Another of the benefits of ginseng for women is its incredible ability to boost the body’s immune system, thus helping to ward off the common cold and aid healing when an infection is present.
  • Many use ginseng for energy and to increase stamina. Ginseng can stimulate blood flow and can be used to combat fatigue and improve sports performance. If taking the herb for this reason, it is not recommended to be administered at night, as this could interfere with sleep.
  • Fighting memory loss. Lapses in memory can be very distressing and this can be a symptom of menopause. Using ginseng in combination with other herbs can aid the sharpening of mental focus and avoid these lapses.

Ginseng Weight Loss
It is also thought that ginseng may be useful when trying to lose weight, an issue with which many women are familiar. Its primary benefit is to aid with regulating blood sugar, which in turn reduces the amount of carbohydrate that the body stores as fat.

It should be noted though that ginseng should be used in conjunction with a balanced, low-fat diet to promote weight loss and will have little benefit if it is not.

Its ability to reduce fatigue and increase stamina should also help with weight loss, as those taking it will have increased energy levels for exercising.

Ginseng Side Effects
Although the benefits of ginseng for women are many, there are a number of side effects, and one should consult a medical professional if in doubt. Side effects can include high blood pressure, insomnia, headaches, and agitation.

Those with a serious illness such as cancer or a heart condition should check with their doctor to ensure that it will not interfere with any prescribed medication.
