Wise Woman Herbal Ezine: Dandelion – A Spring Tradition
by Linda Conroy

“At least three green leaves a day for 30 days” I declared as I stood in the center of my overgrown “weedy” garden. I was planning to undertake a personal experiment. I was preparing to test the hypothesis of wild forgers, herbalists and the practices of traditional cultures around the globe. I wanted to know personally what would happen if I ate three dandelion leaves every day for thirty days.

Smudging is a great way to cleanse a sacred space, and most people use smudge sticks made of sweetgrass or sage for this purpose. Although they are available commercially—and are fairly inexpensive—it’s easy to make your own if you’ve got herbs growing in your garden, or if there’s a place nearby where you can go wildcrafting.

Daily Good: Hummnigbirds and the Ecstatic Moment

may my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living

  • e.e. cummings –

Hummnigbirds and the Ecstatic Moment

“Birds have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and hummingbirds have held a special place in my heart for the simple reason that they, early on, became personal to me. On some level, you could say I became a writer because of hummingbirds, and they have appeared in my fiction since I was very young.” Jeff Vandermeer shares more in this lovely essay. { read more }

Be The Change

Look around you. Notice the tiny life forms in your surroundings — what ‘secrets of living’ might you learn from them?

Inner Journey: HOW DO YOU SHOW YOU CARE?

“Love is not only something you feel. It is something you do.”
— David Wilkerson

In her book, ‘No Less Than Greatness,’ Mary Manin Morrissey speaks of a research study that explored how family members communicate with each other. Apparently, the most frequently spoken words between husbands, wives, sisters and brothers were “What’s on?” and “Move.”

She goes on to say, “We all desire great relationships but often settle for just getting by. Many of us have stopped questioning the fact that we may know fictitious TV families more intimately than we do our own.”

The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love. Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are. How do you experience and express your love for the people in your life?

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love.”
— Thomas Merton

A Note from the Universe

What if there was only you, and the rest of the world was “make believe,” imagination? If even the people in your life were drawn there, or faded away, based upon your thoughts.

Would it then be easier for you to grasp the true meaning of limitless? Would you then believe that you alone make your reality?

Cat, the rest of the world is “make believe,” imagination. And all the people in your life are there or fade away based upon your thoughts.

Wow… that was easy.

Tallyho limitless,

The Universe

Fate
“If you believe in fate, believe in it, at least, for your good.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


Our thoughts are powerful. So, think good thoughts! It’s that simple. Look forward to good things. Be positive; be optimistic. Create your own destiny as you would like it to be. Set your course, as the captain of your own ship

Daily Tarot: The Lovers

Relax, take a deep breath, and don’t let any feelings of anxiety derail your plans for the day. A certain level of nervousness may be in the air today but it doesn’t have to be contagious and you don’t have to catch it. If a touch of anxiety serves to give you a greater sense of caution, that can be a good thing.
