Mountain Man Traditional Healing

From bird’s nest used as a gargle – “Mrs. May Kennedy McCord, of Springfield, Missouri, says that some people gather dirt from the nest of a mockingbird that is setting on three eggs, no more, no less. They dissolve this dirt in lukewarm water for a gargle, which is supposed to relieve any sort of throat trouble.” ~Randolph OMF 134

Graveyard dirt used by witches to kill – “Some witches are said to kill people with graveyard dirt, which is dust scraped from a grave with the left forefinger at midnight. This is mixed with the blood of a blackbird; a raven or crow is best, but a black chicken will do in a pinch. The witch ties this mixture up in a rag which has touched a corpse and buries it under the doorstep of the person who is to be liquidated.” ~Randolph OMF 272

ROLES OF THE ANIMAL TOTEMS

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”

~Chief Seattle~

EXPLANATION OF THE ANIMAL TOTEMS AND THEIR ROLES ALONG THE SACRED HOOP OF LIFE:

As the quote from Chief Seattle above so eloquently illustrates, we are all connected, not just to other “two-leggeds” and the family of man, but to the animals, the trees, the wind, the earth Herself. Like a beautiful blanket woven from many colors and textures of a thread, each individual energy contributes to this Blanket of Oneness, and all are bound together.

Our thoughts, actions, and deeds not only have an impact on our own life along the Red Road but like a pebble tossed into a pond, the ripples of our movement along…

Wild Horses Heading For Extinction: The Bureau Of Land Management And The Facts

Straight from the Horse's Heart

as published Western Journalism

“Any person or any agency who says that wild horses are not native to North America is just uneducated…”

First of all, let’s set the record straight:

photo by Terry Fitch of Wild Horse Freedom Federation

Wild horses are an American native species, according to Ross MacPhee, Ph.D., Curator of the Division of Vertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Given this man’s impeccable credentials and experience, his findings are beyond reproach or debate.

Here is an article by Dr. MacPhee that is crystal-clear: Wild horses are native to America.

This finding is also shared by many other highly credible scientists, including Dr. Jay F. Kirkpatrick.

Any person or any agency who says that wild horses are not native to North America is just uneducated, misinformed or intentionally lying for some reason, usually motivated by…

Animal Spirit and Medicine: Animal Spirits

Good Witches Homestead

Animal Spirits work with us in many capacities and on a variety of levels. As Totems, they reflect aspects of our personalities teaching us to know ourselves better and understand our interrelationships. Power Animals are much the same; they are the dominant Totem and merge in a sacred spiritual manner with our inner spirit. Guides are not always animals but they can be; these creatures guide us through spiritual realms and to our teachers showing the way to enlightenment. Some Animal Spirits act as messengers coming once or twice in a lifetime while others are frequent visitors. All these capacities reflect their abilities to impart a wide variety of messages on many different levels. All Animal Spirits are our teachers in one way or another. They can act as protectors giving us warnings, or defending us in other ways. While they teach us about ourselves and our lives, their highest…

Angels

secretsoftheserpent

An angel, according to religions, is a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence. Some angels are good and some are bad. They even battle each other and god has to step in to make peace between them. As you will see, there is nothing heavenly about these beings and they are described as superior to humans because the people they are supposed to represent think they are above us.

The psychiatric agenda destroys creative children

By Jon Rappoport

“Take a child who wants to invent something out of thin air, and instead of saying no, tell him he has a problem with his brain, and then stand back and watch what happens. In particular, watch what happens when you give him a toxic drug to fix his brain. You have to be a certain kind of person to do that to a child. You have to be, for various reasons, crazy and a career criminal.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

First, here are a few facts that should give you pause:

According to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), “More than 25 percent of college students have been diagnosed or treated by a professional for a mental health condition within the past year.”

NAMI: “One in four young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 have [we claim] a…

African Plant Extract Offers New Hope for Alzheimer’s

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

A plant extract used for centuries in traditional medicine in Nigeria could form the basis of a new drug to treat Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at The University of Nottingham have found.

Their study, published in the journal Pharmaceutical Biology, has shown that the extract taken from the leaves, stem, and roots of Carpolobia lutea, could help to protect chemical messengers in the brain which play a vital role in functions including memory and learning.

The tree extract could pave the way for new drugs to tackle patient symptoms but without the unwanted side-effects associated with some current treatments.

The study was led by Dr. Wayne Carter in the University’s Division of Medical Sciences and Graduate Entry Medicine, based at Royal Derby Hospital. He said: “As a population, we are living longer, and the number of people with dementia is growing at an alarming rate. Our findings suggest that…

Astrorisa Moon ~ June New Moon

Cancer New Moon 2° in House 5
Sun in Cancer 2° in House 5
10:31 PM EDT

Themes: 

Over worked, making important decisions, balancing our emotions, proper timing, spiritual insight, cooperation, fanaticism, intense dreams, the home (comfort zone), fear, insecurity, a need to pay attention to red flags, healing, pleasures of life, and spiritual assistance.

Welcome to the Cancer New Moon
Welcome to the Cancer New Moon, Osupa titun fun Yemoja!! And Happy Summer Solstice to Everyone!! We have arrived at the 2nd cardinal season of the year. with another stellium (4 or more planets) in the sign of Cancer. Time for our 2nd renewal, and rejuvenation program to begin, what shall that look like? Only we can determine that, but we have until autumn to make some important changes for ourselves, so let’s get busy with this new moon time.
Cancer, an archetype of Yemoja is that part of our soul make-up that looks to care for our home base, it determines our needs, and gives attention to those aspects of ourselves and our relationships which require healing, repairing, even transforming. Cancer 2° delves into the great mysteries of life, and will explore its relationship to others; defining their harmony and balance. It does this to determine that relationship’s realism or its falsehood. Cancer 2° and its entire 1st Decan, is not easily fooled, because it is developing a very strong BS radar as it moves through the remaining 8°. House 5, the house of family members, personal interests, and personal pleasures is the house this moon currently resides in.
House 5 (Leo ruled) is a fixed energy, and Cancer is a cardinal energy, we can better identify our problems and are more likely willing to fix them. Also, with the moon’s placement in house 5, our collective consciousness is imprinted with messages for us to ‘sit back’, ‘relax’, and ‘discover’ what brings us emotional satisfaction. Don’t be surprised if that is what you seek at this time, ’emotional satisfaction.’ This lunar position will also have us thinking of ways to express our creativity, and engage in self-actualization. Our family, especially young members are likely to get more of our attention, this attention getting also applies to our pets. We can find ourselves wanting to spend more time doting on them, and relishing in their expressions of happiness and joy. Many emotional changes come with this moon time, including our own acts of self-expression. If you are normally hesitant in expressing your feelings, this Cancer Sun/ Moon time will crack, or break that silent mold for you. You’ll likely find yourself speaking more assuredly, and communicating without hesitation what you think, want, like, and don’t like. Anticipate your children doing the same…because everyone is “Big Mama” during this new moon time.
Important Dates: July 2nd & July 7th
 
July 2nd:  Up to this point, those who have had misunderstandings and miscommunication or fall outs with others may find it difficult to resolve those issues now. July 2nd is a day which brings many forms of blockages to our progress, and these obstructions intensify. People trying to join together, trying to make deals, and connections, are heavily blocked. This day has a strong Ogun energy manifesting within it. The late hours of 10:50 pm – 1 am have a reckless Ogun vibration.
 This day isn’t an auspicious date for the beginning of marriages or contracts. Get a reading before making a commitment of any kind. This date also brings with it, secret meetings which can lead to unfavorable outcomes, and information or letters of concern can arrive. The (+) aspects of this day is that what is currently troublesome, has a strong probability for resolution in the days or weeks to come. But have a witness when discussing or agreeing to anything.
June 12th pinnacle lunar date from the May 25th forecast running until June 22nd
