Be of Good Cheer: Hot Toddies That Heal

When someone needs a cheering up after a long day or is going through hard times  we mix up a quick hot toddy adding in one of our tonics or tinctures. We keep a blend of echinacea and goldenseal tonic using the same recipe above in the house year ‘round.  At the first sign of a cold or cough, 10 drops go into a warm medicinal mug. A  hot toddy is traditionally made with hot water, lemon, sugar or honey, and liquor. Using an herbal tea adds a higher level of medicinal power. Gather together:

Goddess of the untamed shore
smooth my edges into gratitude,
tumble me into letting go,b2ap3_thumbnail_83028215_2543529015859305_8056612813340147712_o1.jpg
teach me what it means
to let my longings
ebb and flow.
Roll me until my to-do list
becomes rubble
and my bindings become loosened
by the touch of salt and time.
Carve me back to my
most essential self,
erode my need to know
until it is replaced
by space
around my heart
to grow.
Sweep over me
and leave me expansive and free,
help me to remember
to wait for nothing
while somehow also being
as patient as the moon.
Encourage me to
chart my own course
and steer my own craft,
trusting the transformations wrought
by truth and trust and tide.

Cabbage is a Winter Vegetable

For the most part, I believe eating with the seasons helps keep us healthy. Like winter squash and root vegetables, cabbage is a winter vegetable, sturdy, healthy, and versatile. Its only negative is that if you overcook it, it does smell bad.  This is due to the Sulfur that is released that way. If it is cooked properly, the Sulfur content helps our bodies to be more efficient. Cabbage is a very useful vegetable. It can be boiled, fried, sautéed or eaten raw in a salad. Inexpensive, it keeps well in the refrigerator, so it is always handy as an ingredient in a quick meal.

30-Second Meditation: Take 30 for Dissolving Blocks, Tuesday 1-21-20

Think magic has to be hard? It requires no expensive tools or elaborate ritual. If you were here for yesterday’s Take 30 you know the drill.

The first step in more balanced and effective ritual or magic is tuning yourself to the greater, cosmic energies all around us.

One simple way to do this is to take 30 seconds each day to tap into the power of one of the eight directions at a certain time and ask for guidance. 30 seconds! What could be easier?

This short meditation and prayer practice can even be shared with non-pagans. It works regardless of belief system.

Tuesday morning, between 7 and 9 AM, face North East and take 30 focused seconds to connect with the energy of dissolving blocks in your life. That’s it!


Tuesday’s Forecast: All things must come to an end as nothing is permanent.

Today is the very last day of a 10-day cycle. Unfortunately, the feeling of being tied down and being caught up in the drama and the problems of others will be highlighted today. Today is a reflection of your experience of the last 10 days, illuminating what needs to be dissolved. The best way to navigate this Groundhog Day is to just slow down, observe and learn. Lay low and just let the world move along without trying to change anything. Remember to be patient with both yourself and others, as not everybody around you is aware of what is unfolding around them, so tempers could be frayed and unpredictable.
