This year people can find out about the sacred way we tend, harvest and prepare our herbs. Come join us!
I feel so blessed. I just finished putting together my 5 Day Personal BodyWisdom Retreat for Women. Then Maria did the webpage, and it's up for booking. We're only going to offer 8 options a year, so be sure to get your vacation time planned to spend with us, and let us pamper you like you've never been pampered before! for info click here!
Okay, admittable, we pull this as soon as we see it long enough to take care of. It becomes little stickers that get in our dog's long hair and they are a pain to get out. They also grab onto you as you walk by, leaving a blanket of stickers next to impossible to get out of your clothing.
Beyond that, they are great. Our ancestors used them for things like kidney & gall stones, and epilepsy. Washing a skin tumor with a tea made of cleavers mixed with oatmeal 3-4 times a day will help over 2-3 months. It's good for bed wetting and weight loss. All and all, it's a pretty handy little plant!
Well it’s that time of year again. We’ll begin to close the house down, the kids have gone back to school and the temperatures drop… and we run ourselves into exhaustion through it all. Want a little help this year? Try our annual steam. Alot of you have heard us talk about it.
Get an old soup kettle out. Cut up a whole lemon, drop in a handful of cloves, and add a handful of dry or fresh eucalyptus leaves. Bring it to a boil, then drop it to a simmer. What’s it do? It makes virus and bacteria germs heavy, literally killing them. It keeps your mucuous membranes hydrated, and perpetuates health during what normally is the human sick cycle! Give it a try, and if you want to know more, just give me a hollar at firstname.lastname@example.org
a repost, but worth it!
Three times a year we harvest and the wonders of this aromatic plant never cease to amaze me. Did you know lavendar tea can get rid of nausea? It also keeps moths out of your clothes like cedar does when you put it in a small muslin bag and put it in your drawer.

Around our house we are blessed with some ancient Rosemary bushes. For generations our families ahve used this for colds, colic and nervous headaches. It's such an all-round herb, having special blessings to those who tend the land when planted, The leaves and flowers are so aromatic that it's even called for as an ingredient in one of our Essential Oils of the People. So if you don't have one, plant one. If you want to know more about it and how to use it, give me a hollar! firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Feet are, among other things, the main Gates, or Doorways, of our grounding impulse to Mother Earth. Everytime our feet have met the road they have been desensitized due to abuse blockage. Often, our contact with the world through our feet has been harsh and painful experience with each and every step we take. Through stress, trauma and daily life happenings, we have lost the sensual aspect of touching the Earth with our feet. There is a lot of energy available that can only be received through the soles of the feet; however, if the energetic gates are closed off to this flow, we, in turn, close our doorway to physical health within our body, creating illness and dis-ease.
These gates in the feet correspond to every part of the body, including all of the organs, endocrine system (glands), lymph and nervous system. These gates can be effectively stimulated to relieve stress and tension, create deep relaxation, improve the blood supply, promote the unblocking of nerve impulses to normalize, and balance the entire body.
The feet contain 26 bones, 56 ligaments, 38 muscles and thousands of nerve endings in each foot. It is said, that by the time you reach the age of 35 years, your feet will have all ready carried you about 45,00 miles. It's a small wonder that so many of us suffer from achy, painful, hot and tired feet. Thankfully those over-worked, neglected, forgotten ligaments and muscles respond well to touch, from both the sensual loving stimulation of our Earth Mother and human massaging touch. Working with your feet can heal them; as well as the rest of you through improved circulation, assistance in the elimination of toxic by-products, and providing over all stress reduction. Opening the gates gives the toxic matter a place to go, there by decreasing over all stress, tension and dis-ease.
For many of us, our feet barely see the light of day, let alone get a chance to be naked on our Mother. It seems that we believe these important, complex body parts need protection at all cost. We get out of bed, go into slippers, then into a cocoon of synthetic fiber (AKA socks), followed by stuffing them into shoes that don't breathe, cutting our circulation off. We, then, stay in our painful and suffocating footwear until it's time for bed where the cycle then starts over.
The best way for you to walk your way to health and vitality, guard against foot-ills and body imbalances is prevention. This can be done in many different ways. First by wearing natural type shoes or sandals made of leather, canvas, or rope. Avoid rubber, plastic and all artificial fibers. Choose roomy round toes and low heels. Keep your connection as close and clear to our Earth Mother as possible. Keep your feet cool and clean. Walk bare foot on the grass and sand minimally 10 minutes daily to strengthen and revitalize the soles of the feet. Give yourself permission to practice going bare foot more often by cutting your slippers out of the picture in the house. You will certainly be amazed how much better you will feel.
Always remove footware immediately on arrival home from the many steps you have taken from your day. The feet need to be aired and have a chance to breath. Splash cold water or take a quick cold foot bath, towel dry rubbing vigorously to rejuvenate the feet. This aids in relieving tension, stress and inflammation of organs and glands which will releases pain and pressure, bring vitality back to the whole body.
Doing the alphabet with your feet. While in a seated poison, bring your feet out in front of you, raise them up 4 to 6 inches and trace the alphabet. You can do capital or lower case, it's your chose. As you do this, notice how wonderful it feels to make circles, lines and squiggles. This will help to rejuvenate and tonify the organs. You may feel like you have had a nice massage and that your organs have more energy and vitality.
Rub or massage your feet and roll your toes. Invite the energy and circulation back into your feet and legs. This can help with the stomach, intestines, liver, spleen, bladder and kidneys. Can you imagine how much more health and vitality you can have if you work on your own feet for 5 minutes before you go to bed ever night.
The body can do it's own healing if the gates in the feet are open, giving the dis-ease a place to go. With some help opening the gates in your feet, your body can work with problems beginning with acne, ending with sprains or fractures and including (among many other things) alcoholism, bed wetting, constipation, diabetes, fatigue, high blood pressure, kidney stones, multiple sclerosis, pyorrhea, shingles, urinary troubles and whiplash.
I would be honored to be the person who can assist you in opening your gates for you to walk your way to health and vitality. For more information and schedule an appointment. I can be reached at 505-414-1583 or email email@example.com
Sastimos… To Your Good Health
Did you know that filling your home with certain plants is better than any air filter you could buy?
Yep. And our all time favorite is Grandma's Spider plant. She sits by the dining room door and greets people as they come in. She has been in our family for over 3 generations, perhaps longer. Ours came from my Grandma, and we have passed her babies on to many in the community.
Here's just a few more that you might find beneficial to helping clean up airborne toxins, not to mention they just brings a wonderful vibrancy to life.
Body Basics for ALL TIMES
Illusion is stored up in the cells of our bodies. Blocks that keep energy from circulating freely. Working with bik’egund inde – The Guardian of the Two Leggeds – brings the opportunity to purify, removing old stored trauma and abuses that can manifest within the physical body as dis-ease. As you come to understand yourself as a multidimensional being, you embrace your body as an intricate part of who you are. This provides you with the opportunity to remove strains of dysfunction, prevents dis-ease, and brings balance to your physicality.
HEREDITY - This is what you are given by your biological lineage. If dis-ease of one nature or another is a theme within your family, then you are being given the opportunity of breaking this chain. We know if there is a history of dis-ease in a family, there is also an underlying, secret dysfunction that runs rampant. Heredity is something you are born with. However, it is not something that you are destine to continue through the lineage.
DIET - It has been said, “you are what you eat.” We advise folks to eat according to their blood type. This eliminates many food allergies, and aligns you with your hereditary landscapes and strength. Not all things hereditary are bad. By eating the food natural to your genetic area of origin, you will strengthen your body.
I also like to recommend in this age of microwave solutions that you read your labels. If you can’t pronounce an ingredient, it is a good bet that your liver will not be able to assimilate it either.
WILL - Your will determines your mental state of mind; how much you want to be well, free of dis-ease, discomfort and pain. You and you alone can improve your health,
DEXOTIFICATION - Anytime honesty enters our lives, our body’s natural reaction is to remove built up residue of dysfunctional memories that have been stored as toxins in our cells.
As you begin to see truth above all else, you may start recognizing tendencies of skin rashes. This is because the vibration of your being has stepped up a notch and your body is becoming a more active partner in eliminating stored toxins and painful memories. Be patient with the physical process of healing. Colds and fevers are Spirit’s way of telling us to take a personal time out. Please do not try to stop these symptoms by using prescription medications - unnatural elements clog our natural cleansing organ, the liver, up and slow its ability to work. Toxins that are eliminated during colds and fevers are easily turned into dis-ease when not allowed to cleanse our system. Other symptoms that may occur as you work with the unknown can be fatigue, bowel sluggishness, diarrhea, frequent urination, nervousness, irritability and depression.
Most folks find their reaction tolerable and are encouraged to bear with them because of the improvements that are already evident. These symptoms vary according to the dysfunctional imprinting being released.
The more you can rest and sleep when symptoms appear, the milder they will be. Be wise, kick back and be nurtured. You can expect to reach a plateau of vibrant health, if you persist in your healing work and continue in your campaign to strengthen your connection.
Suggested tactics that are helpful:
1) Drink water! Lots of it. This does not include tea (not even herbal), coffee, sodas, or anything other than pure water. Daily you should be drinking a minimum, as calculated by taking your weight in pounds, dividing it by two, and arriving at the number of ounces you need to keep your body lubricated properly. For example, I weigh 110 lbs / 2 = 55 ounces of water a day that I need to prevent mental and physical burn out. If I am detoxifying heavily I try to drink closer to my actual weight in ounces of water.
2) Liver detox drink once a week. Lecithin 1 tbs, extra virgin olive oil 1 tbs, lemon (whole, rind and all), 6 ounces any cold fruit nectar. Put it all in a blender and frappe. Drink it straight down, as the olive oil will separate out and then this concoction tastes nasty.
3) Purification Bath: 1 lb (yes 1 lb) rock salt and 1 lb baking soda in water as hot as you can stand it. Stay in until water begins to be tepid. Use no more, no less of the ingredients. Drink lots of water as this is dehydrating. We use the rock salt to pull toxins out, and the baking soda to seal the energetic body so that similar energy toxins cannot return.
Remember these three basic steps as you seek truth above all else. There is no time for pretense.
