Lemniscate ~ Infinity

secretsoftheserpent

The lemniscate is the number eight (8) on its side (∞). Most see this as the infinity symbol. This symbol has something to do with the infinite, but not in the way that most people think. I’m always telling people they are infinite and need to realize their power, but this symbol has more to do with the communication with the infinite or your higher self. I have also seen where religions say this is the symbol of the devil and conspiracy buffs say it is an illuminati symbol. Time to illuminate.

Here is a very interesting stone for you.

The equilateral cross symbolizes the Tetrahedron. The Tetrahedron, ( four-sided pyramid ) is the geometrical principle underlying many types of both organic and inorganic molecules, providing the microscopic structure of diamonds and of the amino acids that are the building blocks of all life-forms on planet Earth.

The numerous facets create a dynamic pattern establishing many energy channels that connect the owner to Source, to Earth, to each of the four directions and to help harmonize your energy field with the cosmic flow of energy pouring from the Mother Goddess present throughout all creation.

Good Witches Homestead

As a stone that emerges with dramatic force from the depths of the earth, obsidian is believed by many to bring hidden emotions to the surface. This makes it extremely useful in releasing long-held stresses and buried traumas.

Obsidian is found only in volcanic areas, where it forms from rapidly cooled lava. Born from the fire within the heart of the planet, Obsidian can bring a strong sense of determination to conquer fear and face reality in a practical, grounded, and courageous way.

In general, Obsidian is a very grounding and protective stone. It is used as a great cleanser of negative energies, helping to remove not only negativity experienced in the environment but also that of one’s own emotions, such as anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, etc. Obsidian is often used for healing and releasing energy blockages and has a tendency to work quickly to move truths to the surface…

Chicory Root

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

You may know the chicory root as a popular coffee substitute. In fact, it was widely used during the Great Depression and World War II when coffee was in short supply or too expensive. Today, it is used around the world and in the US, particularly in New Orleans, as a natural caffeine-free substitute for coffee. However, it’s much more than a rich drink.

Chicory has a long history as a cleansing medicinal herb. In fact, the ancient Egyptians were known to consume large amounts of chicory to purify the liver and blood. Romans were also known to have used the root to help with blood purification. Medieval monks cultivated the plant, and it is widely used in Europe and the Mediterranean where it natively grows.

Called kasni in the Far East, chicory contains tannin phlobaphenes and several forms of sugar. The seeds have carminative and are useful as a…

Quartz and Sacred Geometry

Good Witches Homestead

The 5 Platonic solids (Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron) are ideal, primal models of crystal patterns that occur throughout the world of minerals in countless variations. There are only five regular polyhedra, that is, the only five solids made from the same equilateral equiangular polygons.

To the Greeks, these solids symbolized fire, earth, air, spirit (or ether) and water respectively. The cube and octahedron are duals, meaning that one can be created by connecting the midpoints of the faces of the other. The Icosahedron and Dodecahedron are also duals of each other, and three mutually perpendicular, mutually bisecting golden rectangles can be drawn connecting their vertices and midpoints, respectively. The tetrahedron is dual to itself.

Sacred Geometry is found in nature, in the art, and in ancient civilizations. It can be seen in crop circles, classic art, prayer wheels, mandalas, and DNA. It is found in the grand design…

STONE OF TRANSFORMATION: MOLDAVITE

Featured Image -- 3800

Good Witches Homestead

Moldavite is a translucent green meteoric gem, found only in what is now the Czech Republic. Lately, there have been other green tektites or imitations that are called “moldavite,” but only the Czech Moldavite is the “real thing.” It is classed with the mysterious group of glassy objects called tektites, and it is believed to have fallen from the sky only once, about 14.8 million years ago. Prized by humans for tools and amulets some 25,000 years ago.

Moldavites are rare stones. Moldavites are among the most powerful gemstone tools for spiritual development and expansion of consciousness. They seem to engender an acceleration of one’s inner growth and evolution. Hundreds of times people have described to us the rapid transformation of their lives which has come soon after they acquired Moldavite. Jobs, relationships, lifestyles or possessions which did not serve their highest paths were rapidly released, and the new, evolutionary…

ANIMAL CRUELTY CASE VS. U.S. FOREST SERVICE SIDELINED

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Two Horses and a Mule Died of Dehydration in Arizona’s Apache-Sitgreaves Forest

Washington, DC — An attempt to criminally prosecute U.S. Forest Service employees for acts of cruelty to animals resulting in the death of two horses and a mule has been dropped, according to court records posted today by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER).  The dismissals followed an assertion of federal sovereign immunity in order to block prosecution in state court.

More than most federal agencies, the U.S. Forest Service uses horses and mules in its daily operations. Consequently, care and maintenance of equine livestock is an important duty on many national forests.

But there was a major breakdown of those responsibilities on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona.  In May of 2016, two horses (named Snip and Diesel) and a mule (named Little Bit) were…
