  1. You're quite welcome. I always have a back up jar macerating. Good stuff!
  2. A study came out of, I believe it was Finland, a few years ago about the effectiveness usnea in preparation form for treating staph, strep and MRSA. There a lot of information out there for those that feel like googling.
  3. O, I can't suggest Susun Weed's Meopausal book for you strongly enough. http://www.amazon.com/Menopausal-Years-Woman-Alternative-Approaches/dp/0961462043?ie=UTF8&keywords=susun%20weed%20menopause&qid=1463773462&ref_=sr_1_3&sr=8-3 I don't know what the difference is between the old and the new book. I had the original (a friend swiped it LOL - linked to above). I even ordered fresh black cohosh root. Good luck gagging it down. A friend of mine was able to by mixing it with Dr. Pepper. The simple tincture made at home tastes horrid.
  4. I learned a whole new level of respect for poisonous plants last spring. I've never gotten poison ivy. I'm the moron that you see wading into it with shorts, flip flops and a pocket knife to clear it out. So, we were cleaning the vines off the trees in the back, I identified vining poison oak, and continued on with the days chores. It turns out, I have an anaphylactic reaction to poison oak. Who knew? I didn't.
  5. I don't practice. I just live. My interests are varied. My hobbies are fun. When I have time for them. Life is hectic with 4 generations under one roof at all different and huge stages of life. I'm just busy living. I love the way this conversation has been going because we're all just talking about life.
  6. Scrying isn't about projecting your own images. I do believe it's a natural Talent. I also believe that if anyone has a spark of this that they can work with it and improve, as with any skill. Mild meditative state, unfocused vision, crystal balls, cloud formations, the leaves on the trees blowing in the breeze, different people use different things. Seeing omens is a little different than scrying. Omens kinda jump out at you. Scrying is an activity.
  7. She's out in the desert about 1,000 miles away from me. She's all about the plants.
  8. Kiva Rose has some excellent write-ups on blog. Perhaps, you can find something helpful there http://bearmedicineherbals.com/relax-already-selected-nervine-differentials.html
  9. How does one bind a person to karma? Doesn't karma do it's own thing in it's own time?
  10. Thank you for reminding me of that, honey. It's always lovely to see you :)
  11. I watched a movie not too long ago, and of course, can't remember the name of it. Anyways, there was this one line that stuck with me. Paraphrased - any curse can be a gift once you learn how to use it. Is this something you've always had?
  12. I had a very difficult time aligning with the Wheel when I lived in Florida. The climate simply did not line up it. In areas that have all 4 seasons - I'm good.
  13. I was actually just coming back to fix that. :) The thing with the evil eye is that the majority of the time - it's not intentional. There are people out there that have honed it into an artform but they're not very common. Technically, it's an unintentional casting that comes from 'negative' base emotions. AKA flinging. AKA lack of self control. Envy isn't it's greatest use. That's the emotion it's most commonly based in. Think about this for a sec 'you have a prettier baby than mine' FLING! horrible things can happen in that childs or parents life based on petty jealousy. If one reads the lore - many, many of the protections are for protecting the innocent from petty, damaged and shallow people. The lore is not kind. I'm really not being an asshole here - I'm suggesting that those who are interested do their own research on it. And the black eyeliners were used to protect one from receiving AND sending the evil eye.
  14. Energy is energy. Directing it, regardless of the flavor, is the pretty much the same. Any hang-ups between positive and negative come from the practitioner - not the energy itself. Sunglasses don't stop the evil eye. :D But it's said that eyeliner can :P
  15. Yeah, I'd say that whatever jolts a person out of a solid meditation like that is something that should be addressed.
  16. Have you looked for any local pagan groups or Sanctuaries in your area? Any magic/metaphysical/herbal shops? Any local gatherings? I think some personal interaction would be very beneficial for you. I love TW. The mods work very hard to keep it what it is. Your questions aren't annoying at all. A lot of what your asking is in a lot of the older threads. And one of the things I love here is that years can go by and what one which questioned before can help another today. And your questions in turn, etc, rinse and repeat. :)
