The sad story of a man & a woman

Let me tell you a little story about a man and a woman who loved each other dearly. The man and the woman yearned for a child of their own, one for them to share together but the universe did not bless them for 11 long years. Finally the universe decided that they were ready, that they had waited long enough & gifted them not one but two little embryos to treasure and call their own. They would be born on the 21st of November 2017. The man and the woman were shocked after all of this time but very excited that they would soon get to be parents. One day while the woman at work she noticed that there was a little bit of blood. The doctor told her not to worry and that it was perfectly normal, he told her to go and put her feet up and then questioned her religion. That doctor was a silly little old man who will no longer be practising medicine.

The next day the woman saw a proper doctor who sent her for blood tests and an emergency ultrasound. While getting ready for the ultrasound the woman had a massive cramp and one of the sweet little embryos was delivered right there & then. The ultrasound went ahead and the other sweet little embryo was still tucked away safely in his mummies tummy. For days and days the woman bleed and had multiple blood tests to measure that everything was going okay. The man and the woman laid in bed and prayed and cried and begged for the universe to please protect this little embryo but on the 04/04/17 the doctor called the woman to tell her the bad news that the second little embryo was gone too.

The man and the woman distraught with pain cried together and made a pact to never give up. Grandparents and close friends were told.

The woman decided to handle her grief in the only way she knew. Writing, essential oils, bathing. The things that bring her joy will see her through the darkest of days.

In my burner is my Meditation blend – Orange Sweet, Patchouli, Frankincense, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang & Thyme. I also have this blended with a carrier oil in a little roll on bottle so that I can apply it through the day whenever I feel like I am drowning.

In my bath is of course magnesium and my Sweet Love blend – Lavender, Orange Sweet, Patchouli Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Jojoba, Jasmine

Mabon in the Southern Hemisphere

Mabon

Depending on which wheel you follow we will be celebrating the Autumn Equinox  ‘Mabon’ in the Southern Hemisphere from the 20th through to the 23rd of March.

A reprieve to the stifling, long, hot summer days. The time between the end of summer and the beginning of winter. While the days are still warm the evenings will now begin to cool. Day and night over the equinox are the same length. While the storm season is still active in the north the first frosts will soon be felt in the south.

Mabon is the sabbat of the second harvest. A time between, a balance between light and dark. A shift within nature and ourselves. Time for transformation from mother to crone. Strong and clear psychic vision and dreams are a flow at this time. It is a time of endless possibilities.

Mabon is a time that we will reap what we sew so be sure to give thanks and gratitude for all that the year has provided and all that it will continue to provide.

Ideas for honouring Mabon in the Southern Hemisphere;

  • Decorate your home and altar in Autumn colours.
  • Carve apples with pagan markings, hollow out the centre and insert a tea light candle for your table centre piece.
  • Celebrate with family and friends by sharing a feast of Autumn foods such as pies, nuts, bread, roast meats and soup. Fruit and vegetables that are plentiful at this time such as grapes, apples and corn.
  • Drink dark fruity beverages such as tea, red wine, sangria, mulled wine or even a fruit punch.
  • Light candles in Autumn colours such as red, dark green, brown, yellow and orange.

Even if you are still in the broom closet, it is still possible to give your thanks this Mabon.

Natural Asthma Relief

peppermint

*Please ensure that you do not stop conventional medications. Asthma is potentially deadly and must be treated with caution. The following advice is to be used in conjunction with your prescribed medications. Hopefully over time you will find that you become less dependent on them.*

There are a lot of environmental triggers when it comes to Asthma. Grasses, pollen’s and chemicals are three of the main culprits. While we can’t completely remove them from our lives without living in a bubble we can try and arm our bodies with ‘armour’ to deal with it. Illness is another time when Asthma tends to flare up for many people. The following is a list of natural remedies that may assist in alleviating the symptoms.

Honey (ingested) – The honey must be raw and from your local area. It can usually be sourced from farmers markets and organic stores. As the honey is not heat treated the enzymes from our little bee friends is safely contained within the amber liquid that they produce. They collect the pollen from the trees and flowers in your local area. Much the way vaccinations work, when you are ingesting the honey you are also ingesting microscopic amounts of the pollen’s that you are reacting too. Over time you will become less sensitive as your body builds a tolerance.

Cinnamon (Ingested) – Fights infections and virus’s. Delicious when combined with the honey in breakfast foods & smoothies.

Herbs (Ingested) – Grindelia, adhatoda, elecampane, valerian are all listed as helping the reduce spasming of the airway. White Horehound & Common Plantain also provide respiratory relief however they are not suitable for children.

Vitamins (Ingested) – A, C D & Magnesium. All assist in maintaining health. Magnesium is an absolute must!

Essential Oils (Topical, Inhalation) – create a blend of the following;

Cajeput x 6 drops

Peppermint x 6 drops

Sweet Fennel x 6 drops

This blend can be used in a vaporiser or mixed with a carrier oil such as sweet almond for a massage oil. Please ensure that you follow the basic essential oil safety precautions when blending your own massage oils. Generally I would use 12 drops per 10ml for an adult 4% blend, I would use 6 drops per 10ml for a child or sensitive skin adult 2% blend. Please remember that true essential oils can burn. I will never advise you to ingest oils and it infuriates me when I see ‘consultants’ recommending people drink and consume these oils. Please do not do it!

Essential Oils (Cleaning) – Another big trigger for me is cleaning chemicals. I have replaced my surface sprays with the following which I just mix into a spray bottle.

Peppermint x 30 drops

White Vinegar x 1/4 cup

Water

Mix in your spray bottle and use in place of your surface spray and antibacterial wipes.

Peppermint is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal & anti-viral which makes it perfect for replacing those harmful chemicals!

Please ensure that your essential oils are pure and organic where ever possible. Be careful with the influx of multilevel marketing companies and their consultants that have flooded the market, they are well meaning but unfortunately there is a lot of mis-information out there. Try and buy local. It is important that we keep small independent farmers and sellers alive and growing!

Pan

The Universal God. 

God of fertility, sex and wild nature. 

A shepherd looking over fields, woods and pastures. A protector of flocks, over the raising of bees, the culture of the vine & fishing. 

Pan is often depicted with his ‘pan flute’ as shown above.

Pan was chasing a water nymph named Syrinx. She cried aloud to her father, the river god Ladon to change her into a reed. He granted her prayer. Upset, Pan consoled himself by cutting some of the reeds and fashioning them into ‘pan pipes’. 

Pan is the son of Arcadian god Hermes. 

Full Moon in Gemini

The full moon will rise in the Southern Hemisphere on the 13th of December at 17.39pm. This will be the final super moon for 2016, so it’s our last chance to take advantage of the additional power this will generate.

This cycle is in the zodiac sign of Gemini. Gemini is a time for new ideas and information. Listen and try to understand what is important. Use this full moon to evaluate what you have learnt this year, be thankful for the blessings that you have received and release what is no longer serving you.

Say goodbye to 2016, a year of lessons and heavy emotions and prepare to welcome 2017, a year of new beginnings and fresh starts.

Perform a cleansing ritual on yourself & your space. Charge your crystals and tools. And bathe in the last powerful moonlight for 2016.

 

 

 

Connected Souls 

Have you ever just met someone & just clicked? Conversation flows effortlessly, a spark of curiosity. Comfortable silence. Their soul whispers to yours. An invisible cord silently connecting you together.

Some people think that a soul mate is a romantic attachment. I don’t necessarily think this is correct. I believe that we are born with a heartbeat and every now and again we meet another and their heartbeat falls in sync with ours. At that first meeting, your souls intertwine. Destiny will ensure you return your souls together if not immediately, then when the great forces of the universe determine that the time is right. 

One half of the twin flame may still have lessons to learn or perhaps some unfinished business to close. Maybe they are healing someone or teaching another. One thing is certain, in the end the connected souls will reunite. 

It may be a child, someone you are destined to have a great friendship with, a lover or a teacher. It may be for a lifetime or for an eternity. 

It’s important to allow for the universe to do what is required in what ever time it needs. Don’t force it. Allow it to play out naturally and organically. In the end the souls who are meant to be together will connect, there is no stopping it. Twin flames, soul mates, connected souls are destined to be together in every lifetime. Not always in the same form, but always together. 

Litha 

Litha otherwise known as the Summer Solstice, is the longest day of the year. While there are still plenty of long hot summer days to come, from this point on the days will commence to get shorter until we reach the opposite aspect of the wheel, Yule. Litha in the Southern Hemisphere is celebrated on the 21st of December.

The tale of Litha is a battle between light and dark. The Oak King, ruler of the time between summer and winter and the Holly King, ruler of time between winter and summer, battle for power. They battle at each solstice where they take over the power from the other.

Litha is a time of warmth, brightness, fertility and potency. Crops are reaching maturity and will soon be ready for harvest. Herbs and medicinal plants should be gathered and dried ready for the winter months.

Litha is a time to celebrate your own inner brightness and power. The midsummer is an ideal time for love magick and handfasting. A time for family and friends. Celebrate outdoors with bonfires, swimming, music & barbecues.
