Awakening Your Third Eye

Good Witches Homestead

IT TAKES A VISION, BOTH PERSONAL AND COLLECTIVE,
TO CHANGE THE MANY DYSFUNCTIONAL ASPECTS OF OUR WORLD
THAT KEEPS US ENMESHED, TRAPPED AND DISENGAGED.
VISION IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE HEALING PROCESS.
– ANODEA JUDITH

The Third Eye chakra, aka the sixth chakra, is located between the eyebrows on the forehead and connects us to our visualizations, deep inner wisdom, and truth. It represents our deepest consciousness and guidance. The sixth chakra allows clairvoyance, the ability to see clearly, and imagination while tapping into our psychic abilities. It is the point in which we perceive, store, create, and project on ourselves and those around us – it is, essentially, a gateway to the Soul.

In the center of your forehead, you can imagine your Third Eye to be open, clear and ready to receive what it is the world around you is showing you. However, during times of experiencing…

The 12 Chakra’s

Good Witches Homestead

You may be familiar with the 7 major chakras of the human body. But did you know that some chakra systems count 12 or more chakras? In order to enhance your understanding of the energy body, it is essential to know your 12 chakras. Familiarity with the 12 chakra system adds depth, context, and appreciation for your understanding of how chakras work and how to best balance energies in your life.

WHAT IS THE 12 CHAKRA SYSTEM?

The idea of a 12 chakra system is considered relatively new. As much as one may appreciate simplicity in learning about the chakras, there is no unique or unified understanding of the 12-chakra system to this day.  The knowledge about the 12 chakras mostly comes from modern perspectives expressed by contemporary healers and energy workers.

Put simply, there are 2 main types of configurations presented in modern healing schools of thoughts: The 12 chakras are located either both inside and…

Energy Work: Sending Energy

Wolf Of Antimony Occultism

Sending energy is a basic energy technique that goes through the process of releasing energy out of  your energetic body. Through this basic process you are able to release specific types of energy from your being out into the world, or into other constructs which can be very useful for other techniques such as the enchantment of objects, or the process of sending someone else energy. This process could also be used in the releasing of energy during a state of energetic overflow. The releasing of energy also is done during processes such as grounding, though it is not controlled specifically like in this technique.

You are going to want to ground, and center before you do this technique, so that you will be able to bring all your energy, and awareness to the center of your being, and ground yourself within this moment physically, and energetically. This process may also be smoother if you get into…

The Skin You’re In (#herbs, #IBS & #skincare)….

My Herbal Adventures...

My skin has been a nemesis of mine since I was a teenager. Yet, the worst years were in my early twenties for breakouts and trial after trial of trying to fix what seemed to only get worse. As I tried to figure out how to fix it from the outside, without being willing to change my eating habits, it only got better when my alcohol consumption and relationship with nutrition & food changed in my mid-twenties. To this day I still struggle with my skin more than anything else in my lifestyle routine; due to a few reasons I will discuss below.

IBS! This has been a new discovery for me in the past few years. My sensitive stomach is really what has now been defined and given a name; Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Here are the list of symptoms in case you are unfamiliar:

  • Changes in normal bowel movements…

THE GOOD SIDE of BEING DOWN

Good Witches Homestead

The anatomy of anger, envy, sadness, and fear

Negative emotions do us a great favor – they save us from ourselves.
They’re mysterious signals, that oftentimes surge for “no apparent reason”, urging us to pay attention and change what we’re doing. Emotions that generate unpleasant feelings have been called sins (anger, envy), rejected in “polite” interaction (jealousy, frustration), or identified as unhealthy (sadness, shame). Culturally we’re taught to suppress these feelings, or medicate them, and punish ourselves for feeling them. Because these feelings are mostly seen as unpleasant, they are often called “negative” emotions… although “negative” is a misnomer. Honestly, if you think about it, emotions are not inherently negative or positive, they simply are a feeling to situations that happen. In esoteric practices, for example, they are distinguished by much more than whether they feel good or bad. Beneath the surface, every emotion orchestrates a complex expression of changes in motivation…

Empath and the Soul

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Dimitri had asked a question on a group I was in, about changing from a mind government, to an empath government. My answer is no, because the path of the Empath is very different from everything we see in the world of mind/body and the eternal soul depends upon us to get our emotional body healed, not about group activity.
The Mind’s goal is to get into the body and silence it at will. To get it i to the present moment rather than out there in space and idealism. Anyone who has done even two years of dedicated Zen or Buddist meditation, knows how noisy and bossy the mind is. It  can be settled with practces.
The Emotional bodies on the other hand, has an evolution that is very different than mind/body, it is one of love, self love, and heal ones emotional…

Crystal Healing 101 ~ Your Safety Matters

By Krista Mitchell

How safe is your spiritual, psychic, or crystal healing practice?

There’s nothing more exciting than answering your calling and pursuing your purpose.

Earning a living as a healer or psychic and running a spiritual business, though a lot of work, is so fulfilling, and it’s a dream come true for a lot of people who are seeking to find deeper meaning in their lives.

What can get missed, though, are safety concerns. We’re talking physical security, legal protection, energy protection, and crystal care (if you work with crystals).

The reality of the world we live in, is that while we are doing beautiful work and attracting wonderful clients to our services, there are still scammers, predators, sexual solicitors, and angry people out there, and it only takes one to do you a world of harm.

And as a healer, if you’re not honoring certain things like boundaries, laws, liabilities, and proper care of your crystals, you could potentially (and unintentionally!) harm a client.

This is the real-world side of being a healer, beyond the trainings, psychic development, and IG posts with sparkles and unicorns (I love sparkles and unicorns!).

Whether you’re looking to start a healing practice, or if you’re already full-throttle, my latest article on my blog “Crystal Healing 101: Safety Tips” is a must-read.

And if you’re a client or someone who receives spiritual healing, it’s also worth a read if you have any concerns about boundaries or liabilities.

As more and more people are answering the call and setting out to become professional healing practitioners (which I am beyond honored to be helping to facilitate!), safety concerns could become an increasing issue.

Head on over to my blog and read my article “Crystal Healing 101: Safety Tips”for great info that can help you, and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments area of my blog.

Quote of the Week

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

Our Beloved Oregon Grape

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Berberis aquifolium

Also, Known As:

  • Oregon Grape
  • Mountain Grape

Not many people are aware of the interesting fact that the state flower of Oregon blooms on this beautiful shrub. Known for its attractiveness and its rapid growth, the Oregon grape is used medicinally, as well as for ornamental landscaping in several homes across the country. The leaves of the Oregon grape resemble those of holly; they are dark green, spiny and shiny, in almost the same way as the holly leaves are dark green and shiny. The flowers of this shrub are small and yellowish green in color, and the berries of the Oregon grape are a shade of dark purple-blue, especially when they ripen. They grow in small clusters, and in this, they resemble clusters or bunches of grapes. The Oregon grape shrub can grow to almost 6 feet in height, but in general, it grows about 3 –…
