The Darkest Astrology Asteroids – Power and Struggle, Sorrow and Misery and our Karmic Purification through Pain

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Doing consultations in Astrology along side Asteroids work for the last thirty years, has shown me many karmic life stories and how they play out. Where our weaknesses are and how we begin to rebuild strength and learn to let go in order to heal our issues and destruction. I have found Asteroids very accurate as they add layers and depth of people, their story and the subtle struggles that we all have to go through.

ELEMENTS
When we work with any ancient esoteric, mythological, oracular, shamanic, folk lore or Jungian teachings, we break down the self and the world into our elemental self: Earth, Air, Water, Fire (and the 5th element metal in Chinese tradition, which is ether). The four essential ingredients are the four different states of matter and energy: 

Earth as solid and our physical life; Water as liquid and…

BLM is moving full steam ahead to send wild horses to Guyana

Straight from the Horse's Heart

This is how America’s wild horses will likely be treated in Guyana.  Do you think Guyana has sanctuaries where the wild horses will live after they’re used as work animals?  Or, do you think they’ll end up being slaughtered?  (As if this weren’t bad enough, the BLM will be sending them to an area with jaguars.)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

secretsoftheserpent

Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t have as much symbolism as The Force Awakens, but the symbolism it has goes much deeper.  It is showing the transaction that is happening in our world right now.  The dying off of the old patriarch ways and the beginning of the new sacred feminine.   If you have not seen the movie I am giving you a spoiler alert.  I will show what happens, so if you don’t want to know the ending, see the movie first.

Friends of Forest Farming

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

As armies of amateur wildcrafters pluck Appalachian ginseng, goldenseal, and other medicinal herbs to near extinction, a coalition of universities, nonprofits, and “forest farmers” are working on a solution that will not only help preserve these wild herbs but also prevent supplement adulteration.

The Appalachian Beginning Forest Farmer Coalition includes Virginia Tech, Penn State, and North Carolina State University; the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, and other government organizations; nonprofits like United Plant Savers and the Blue Ridge Woodland Growers; and Appalachian landowners and farmers. Together, these entities are developing a model called “forest farming” for cultivating traditionally wildcrafted herbs, including black cohosh {Actaea racemosa}, goldenseal {Hydrastis canadensis}, bloodroot {Sanguinaria canadensis}, ginseng {Panaxquinquefolius}, blue cohosh {Caulophyllum thalictroides}, stoneroot {Collinsoniacanadensis}, wild yam {Dioscorea villosa}, and wild indigo {Baptisia tinctoria}.

Crystals for Dealing with Negative People

by Ashley Leavy
Love and Light School of Crystal Therapy

When you’re feeling like there’s some negative energy in your space or you’re surrounded by negative people, your instinct may be to immediately reach for your protective crystals, but this may not be the best remedy.

Energy is just energy. We classify it as “positive” or “negative” but in actuality, there is just energy. There is energy that serves our highest good (positive) and energy that doesn’t (negative).

So how do you deal with “negative” energy in a space? The first step to take is to clear the space of any energy that’s not serving your highest good.  When dealing with a person who leaves you feeling stressed out or drained, protective crystals can help shield you from absorbing the chaotic energy they imprint upon a space. However, using those crystals is only half of the solution.  You need to remedy the root cause of the situation by clearing that energy from your space.

Grounding Essentials

Though some people are too grounded (raises hand), there seems to be more that need all the reminders they can get, so … Here’s one.

by Kat Michaels CCT,ACM
katmichaels.net 


Grounding is a foundational yet often overlooked area of spiritual and psychic development. Those who are ungrounded can appear spacy or disconnected from their environments. They may experience dizziness, confusion, and memory trouble. By not taking the appropriate measures to stay connected to the Earth and to reality, ungrounded individuals lose touch with their physical senses and allow their spiritual senses to take over. This becomes a huge issue once leaving meditation or a healing session to return to the physical world. It’s important to remain grounded during meditation and other spiritual work, too, so that one can properly absorb and integrate spiritual information.

Easy ways to ground oneself include drinking water, eating root vegetables, or hugging a tree. Exploring nature, walking barefoot outside, and gardening are other great options. Archangels Michael and Metatron are able to help ground and/or keep one grounded (just remember that one must request their help to receive it!). Visualization and certain crystals also work extremely well for grounding. Whatever grounding method is chosen, it’s best to employ it as a daily practice.

For a grounding visualization, imagine that your feet are connected to the Earth with roots. The roots can be made of any natural material that resonates – they can be cords of light, actual tree roots, or lines of metal or stone. You may wish to do a short meditation to determine the best intuitive “grounding roots” for yourself. Set the intention that all is done in your highest and best interest and in the highest and best interest of all.

Most brown, black, and red stones will ground and will provide a feeling of physical stability and safety. Specific crystals and stones for grounding include the following:

Agate (all types), Black TourmalineBrown Tourmaline (dravite), CopperHematiteJasper (all types), Petrified WoodPyriteRed Tiger EyeShungite and Smokey Quartz.

To work with any of these, place the crystal or stone in your pocket during the day, or hold it in your receptive hand during meditation. Your receptive hand is generally your non-dominant hand, but check, as it varies by individual. You may also choose to wear the stones in jewelry or sleep with one underneath your pillow.

A Druid’s Guide to Connecting with Nature, Part II: Nature Wisdom

One of my favorite mushrooms- the Chicken of the Woods One of my favorite mushrooms- the Chicken of the Woods

As any mushroom hunter knows, mushrooms are tricksy little buggers.  What one looks like in one setting may not necessarily be what one looks like in another, depending on soil conditions, moisture, sun, size of the mushroom, insect damage, and/or regional variation. Mushroom species can vary a lot, even from one small region to another, and that variation can spell trouble for someone who hasn’t yet gained the wisdom to understand such variation.  Mushroom books offer perhaps 1-2 photos of mushrooms, and a good book will also offer a mushroom hunter the “keys” (features that distinguish one mushroom from another, like attached gills, color, etc).  However, only lived and true experience can help you not make a dangerous mistake when it comes to the mycelium kingdom.  The difference here, I think, epitomizes two key things: the different aspects of nature…

This is How the Ancients lifted the Megalithic Blocks

This is how the Ancients lifted the megalithic blocks …

secretsoftheserpent

Many people have tried to figure out how the ancients lifted those megalithic blocks.   Some of these stones weigh more than 2000 tons.  The blocks on the Great pyramid weigh about 400 tons each and there are millions of them.  For those who  don’t know, 1 ton equals 2000 lbs.  400 tons is 800,000 lbs a block, 2000 tons is 4 million lbs a block.  Our machinery today would struggle to lift these blocks.  To get to the bottom of how they built the megaliths, we have to look at one major problem science likes to lie about.  That problem is the dinosaurs.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to say they used the dinosaurs to lift the rocks like on the Flintstones.  Though that makes mores sense than most theories.

Pantry Profile: Basil {Ocimum basilicum}

By Crooked Bear Creek Organics

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Bright green, tall, and aromatic, basil is a beauty. An ancient plant with a long history and strange folklore, its sweet, peppery flavor has been used for centuries in cuisine and medicine.

Basil is native to Africa and Southeast Asia and was eventually cultivated in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Roman scholar Pliny the Elder described basil’s {now well-known} benefits as a carminative and digestive, explaining its effectiveness in relieving flatulence, colic, and nausea. It also has a long history of use for coughs associated with colds, and the leaves were routinely used topically as an insect repellent and poultice to relieve bug bites and stings.

Much myth and legend surrounded this plant we now consider a simple culinary herb. The ancient Egyptians believed basil would entice the god Osiris to open the gates of the afterlife. In his book the English Physician Enlarged, 17th-century botanist Nicholas Culpeper…
