Herbal Muse: Peaceful Dreams Insomnia & Anxiety Elixer

The herbs in this formula have been used to induce relaxation and promote sleep for centuries and modern research validates their efficacy. Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), for example, a member of the mint family that grows in the moist woodlands of northeastern North America, contains several flavonoid compounds (i.e., apigenin, baicalin and wogonin) with demonstrated anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effects. The calming properties of passionflower and lavender are also well documented. In the latter, the mild sedative effects are produced by aromatic organic compounds called ketones. The sedative, anti-anxiety effects of passionflower are due to various alkaloids, most notably a group known as harmala alkaloids. Learn now to make this….

Elephant Journal: Getting through Life as Highly Sensitive People without Putting Out our Flame.

I am both a highly sensitive person (HSP) and a hardcore empath.
It took me about 26 years of blindly exploring the deepest pits of life to unfold the reality of who I’ve always been, with all the tragedy and great triumphs that came with having this personality. I am almost 30 now.

Tetraktys: Witchcraft Troubleshooting: 5 Reasons Why Your Spell Failed

If, like me, you work according to the moon phases, you will easily know if a spell failed. If you set your intentions at the New Moon and release your expectations at the Full Moon, all your spellwork should run smoothly. However, if, when you reach the next New Moon, things have not improved, then something must have gone wrong.

Working with High Days is a wonderful thing, but High Days come and go eight times a year. What can someone do if they want to develop a monthly, weekly, or daily practice? This discussion will investigate building a devotional practice with the Three Realms, namely, Land, Sea, and Sky.

Inner Journey:

THERE’S LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

“Each difficult moment has the potential to open my eyes and open my heart.”
— Myla Kabat-Zinn

“Even the most daring and accomplished people have undergone tremendous difficulty. In fact, the more successful they became, the more they attributed their success to the lessons learned during their most difficult times. Adversity is our teacher. When we view adversity as a guide towards greater inner growth, we will then learn to accept the wisdom our soul came into this life to learn.”
— Barbara Rose

“No matter what difficulty you are facing, it is coming from Divine Light to bring you to a higher place within. Write down every conceivable reason that this situation can contribute towards your growth. Write down every way this experience can possibly set the stage for serving to uplift others. When you are complete, and have come to the other side of this experience, you will then know ‘why’ it happened.”
— Barbara Rose

“The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is the most difficult period in one’s life.”
— Dalai Lama

Giving

-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)

Give without hesitation. Give without expectation. Give freely of yourself, and watch. There are miracles just waiting to happen.
