Physical Land Healing: How do I know what to do?

The Druid's Garden

Some years ago, I remember one influential druid speaking at a major event and saying, “The best thing you can do in nature is pick up the garbage and get out.” From a certain standpoint, this perspective makes a lot of sense. It is the same perspective held by many conservationists trying to preserve pristine lands or lands that have been replanted and are healing; the best thing that can be done is figure out how to keep people from mucking them up, pick up garbage, and leave them undisturbed. This is a perspective ultimately rooted in the desire to care for nature, to preserve nature, and to do good. Unfortunately, this perspective doesn’t really seem to provide a meaningful way to respond to today’s problems ecologically because it’s largely based on assumptions that mitigate damage rather than actively regenerate ecosystems. This perspective as a whole teaches us how to…

3 Alcohol-Based Hand Rub Recipes – Herbal Academy

Good Witches Homestead

The most important prevention measures we can take right now are staying home and practicing social distancing if leaving the house for essential work or trips to the grocery store or pharmacy—that is, staying at least 6 feet away from other people (Centers for Disease Control [CDC], 2020a). Washing hands thoroughly with soap and warm to hot water for at least 20 seconds after being in a public place, after sneezing or blowing your nose, and before eating, drinking, or handling food is also crucial to prevent the spread of the virus; however, if handwashing isn’t possible, the CDC recommends the use of an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% ethanol or 70% isopropyl alcohol until you can wash your hands again (CDC, 2020a; CDC, 2020b).

Folks have taken this approach to heart, clearly, because commercially available hand sanitizers are in seriously short supply these days! However, with a…

A New Page In My Chronic Pain Journey

Oro Cas Reflects

My name is Oro Cas and I am a chronic pain sufferer. A fifty foot fall in my 20’s, a lightning strike at 40, and 30 years of driving tractor-trailer have taken a toll on my body and nerves. As of my last spine series, I have 3 dead discs, 2 ruptured discs, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and degenerative disc disorder. Needless to say, I am a patient at a pain clinic where over the past two years I have gone from 10mg of Oxycontin once a day to 20mg twice a day.

I’m getting close to a time where there will have to be some major decisions made. Decisions that I dread. Do I have surgery with the hope of better mobility and pain relief? The opinions from two neurosurgeons were no help. One said call me when you’re ready for surgery, the other said you have a 50-50 chance…

Songs of the Soul’s Awakening

Soul Dreamers

By Phoenix the Elder – Our new Social Distancing today is what an awakening person or one who has awakened since the 1980s with their soul breakdowns, must do naturally. Its always been that way for thousands of years, especially for Empaths (with or without there awakening). Experiencing a Spiritual Awakening (or what some call a Kundalini Rising) is when the soul is timed to wake up, sort of like how labor of a birth starts to awaken the changes. And its horrible. Those who haven’t had it, don’t know.

Not everyone goes through this and don’t confuse sickness, mental sickness or emotional sickness and stress, or the saturn returns as a spiritual awakening, its not, the awakening is much different, although the symptoms of such things will be a sign for “some” people.

Because illness can be karmic (in the context of which I am speak of), the closest…

Greenlights Translation

secretsoftheserpent

Krewella is a band that has been awake for awhile.   They know what they are doing and so do the people who help them. These girls are not just about girl power they are fully awake. They use terms like bull and sheep knowing what I show you in my posts.   Their new song Greenlights is very revealing.  Here is another trip into my mind.  Take a deep breath and hold on tight.

Fear

secretsoftheserpent

What is fear?  It is not just something that you experience once in awhile.   It goes much deeper than just psychology.  Fear is in are DNA.  The human race has experienced it since its inception.  Has anyone ever taught you how to deal with fear or what it is?  Odds are you will say no.  Everyone tries to deal with fear all the time yet no one tells us how to deal with it.  We don’t like fear, yet it triggers so easy within us.  Fear is running rampant right now.  Just like all our other emotions the world tells you to suppress it.  This post will help you overcome the limits you have been taught.  Fear dominates everyone’s life.  With the way things are today it will not only dominate it will run your life.

Taking a Breath: Spiritual Care for Intense Times

The Druid's Garden

To say that this hasn’t been an easy week for anyone in North America, Europe or in many places around the globe is an understatement. Between what is happening in work life, school life, and political life, the situation is difficult to navigate.  I’ve talked to many friends and family who are feeling overwhelmed, lost, panicked, and fearful about the near future. So today’s post is about taking a breath.  Its times like these that I am thankful for my druid practice, thankful for the healing nature provides, and thankful for the lessons of spirit.  Let’s take a breather today, now, in this space and time, and talk through a few spiritual self-care practices that can help in times of high stress, anxiety, and intensity.  I have three kinds of suggestions that have helped me get through this week–embracing nature, embracing spiritual practices, and embracing the bardic arts.

Embrace Nature

The Observer Becomes the Observed

secretsoftheserpent

In order to change it takes a lot of energy.  Most will not change because they waste their energy on drama, conflict and television.  In order to change it takes action.  Not action of having done or will do something, but doing it now.  People get stuck on analyzing themselves and their world and thinking about doing something.  The problem with analyzing is the knowledge and wisdom is incomplete or wrong.  The answers we get from analyzing will come from information that is incomplete or wrong.

Its common for me to get asked various questions about spiritual awakenings. To be perfectly frank here, I am really starting to detest that phrase. It is starting to get a vibe that almost makes it sound easy and something you have to do to get into the cool kids club. Like somehow its a…Continue…

Time and Change

secretsoftheserpent

Time = spirit.  Time is spirit in movement.  Time and being are the same.  Movement of desire. 

Time is the process of filling the void.  It is a vast movement of what we are a part of.  Time is perspective.  Time is activated by desire, eternity has no desire.Time is not speeding up, desires are amping up.  When we desire something time measures how long it takes to get what we desire.  Time is purely human.  Time starts with an act of self deception, Person you want to be is not authentic self.  Biological time starts with mother, needs of instinctual body is what time is measuring.  Without desire or delay of desire, there would be no time.
