Am fascinated by your question, and the fact that you are opening a rescue centre.


As far as healing goes, I would suggest that you start with the herbal route.  But different herbs grow in different places.  I live in the south of England, so I grow very 'traditional witchy herbs, sage, thyme etc', but my climate cannot tolerate a lot of more 'exotic' things!


I would suggest that you begin at the beginning.  Start with the traditional herbal remedies of your area and research them thoroughly.  Experiment with recipes, (I did, and some of them were bloody vile, and as far as I was concerned,  bloody useless).    

And I would also say, (and I think you've already said it!) never underestimate modern medicine.  In my opinion, why drink herbal tea for a year, when a pill can remove the pain in 20 minutes...


And let's face it, modern medicine is currently taking age old herbal cures, processing them into neat little pills, and selling them!


I wish you luck with your endeavour, and feel sure that you will make all the right decisions, simply because you question yourself in the first place :)

A bit late to this thread :)  I would say the place to start is with you.  You said you psych yourself out, why?  You are a bit rusty, does that mean you don't feel confident in what you do?  What about spending some time working on self esteem or confidence?  Or trying a couple of spells for fun, that you don't really care if they work out or not?  I mean do them with the intention they work, but then let go of the outcome.  Play with some rosemary (helps with memories).  Everything you've been able to do is still there, it just needs you getting back into it, so work on whatever the blocks are instead of the actual witchcraft and then see what happens.

...you need a lot of courage in this life, to make some of the choices you have to make. That's natural. I mean, you can't sit back like an amoeba and just regenerate yourself. You've got to be an exciting, dynamic human being, and there are choices you're going to make that's going to cause you some difficulty, and if it requires some courage on your part, then do it. - Charles Perkins, Arunta Elder, 1998
