Tree Beings as Allies…

treepic

Trees and I go way back, thousands of years (lifetimes). There  was a time when the Vedress People lived and I remember it. Anastasia talks
about this time period. You find many mentions of it in her books. I have an  indescribable alignment with word Vedress. The people of that time were in alignment with the all, the one in creation, co-creation together. They left us  libraries of information in megaliths. Information contained in those rocks  structure today. The Trees in certain areas of the world remember these people.

Trees hand down information to the plants through the root
systems, eco systems that develop around them and from the matter like leaves
that fall from them eventually eaten by the microbes into soil matter, breaking
down the information (matter) into a structure that can be taken in assimilated
by smaller beings. Taking in food, air, water is the same as taking in
information in our environment, part of us humans, animals, plants, trees and
beings that live in soil have programs within to decipher the information
without us even knowing it, our systems can adjust to what is. In some cases if
it cannot adjust, severe environmental issues like radiation it will kill us
when we cannot find the information to adapt to in our environment through the information we take in. That is why what man is doing to the planet is causing, will cause and extinction and most do not even know that is going on now.

I have always loved trees. I have had the great privilege of meeting many trees in their nature eco systems and also in the human made eco systems. Trees are the most magnificent beings on earth. Tree consciousness is ancient, patient and peaceful like a Zen master would be like if he/she was a tree. I have visited the redwoods in California and the information there was so old from a time that there was peace there. I could hear the inhales and exhales of those trees and the plants that grew around them worshipped them. The air was still ancient, moist; pollen rich like the whole earth was at one time. I read a book about the earth thousands of years ago and there was speculation that we humans had capacities in our lungs to breath in all the pollen in the air and live off it. it contained everything in it we needed. The air was rich with such food for us then. I suspect that this is where the modern ideas of breatharianism comes from when we could simply live off breathing even for water and food in our atmosphere. I have memories about that time on earth as well. I can remember running through green tall grasses and pollen is floating everywhere, the air is warm, moist and I feel at peace with all life around me. I never knew hate, anger, rage, and fear in that life experience. It did not exist we humans were one with the all, the one.

My first experience with a tree Spirit was on a fall day. 2005? I had a single size futon that I had made into a couch. I positioned it in the living room so I could lay on it and look out my window. I loved to look out of my second story window and contemplate the sky, clouds, weather and large trees outside of my apartment.

One early morning with coffee in hand I laid down on the futon I felt dreamy, drifting consciousness kind of “out of it”. The sun was shining through the window onto the lower end of the futon across the bottom half of my body which invited me to sink into the vastness of what I call the dreaming
state. I drifted on the waves of awareness for several hours in a hypnotic
state. As I was coming back into my body laying on the futon, I saw “it” it was
in the tree moving towards me.

In the large fully leafed tree outside the window I saw a cloud of energy form, this cloud of energy reminded me of a dragon. The long neck and head, it was twisting its neck around turning to look at me as it formed. I remember thinking; “oh my God, that is the spirit of the tree!” The spirit stretched out its neck aligning its head to make eye contact with me, I watched its mouth open and I knew it was going to talk to me! That is when I fully sat up, I almost screamed, the hair on the back of my neck was standing up. By the time I shook off the state I was in, the spirit had left.

I became a tad bit more respectful out in nature especially around trees. My inner landscapes changed after the first visitation of the tree spirit.

When you know that there is a conscious spirit being or soul in all livings things, deep reverence of all life takes hold.

I met lots of indigo kids in my line of work of all ages. There was a particular one who stands out to me, he is now an adult. He told me some really fantastic things about energies that he had observed in his life. He had been brought up in the city. He was tuned into energies that are in, surround cities in his younger years. The lower vibrational beings that come in inter-dimensionally use electric energy; they pull energy from the human made grid which brings them into this time and space. This electricity helps them to full form and operate here with us. They take over cities and the people who live
in them creating a mental illness state. Eventually they hitch rides around on
people called entities and can cause death. Sometimes these beings become
powerful and we may call them demons and they make there way into the bodies of humans. The concrete and black top blocks the earth energy and nature beings from being able to balance out the frequency. There is no real protection from these beings in cities. They multiply rapidly using the electric grid for the power source the need, like portholes. I have seen video of these beings working in our world via electric power lines; you can see them in full form at night around lights and places that emit great amounts of power.

There is information that I have read about that gives scientific basis for what the First Nation people knew long ago. That the frequency of the earth, which they call the heart beat of the earth and there understanding of aligning with it and it is practiced to this day. We can align ourselves with the heart beat of earth is simply by standing quietly, connecting, breathing gratitude into all living things and gently tap your chest where you heart is in a heart beat motion.

The indigo told me that he had to move out of the city and the first chance that opened, he moved to the forest and lives there today. The energy of nature is strong, the nature beings or forces hold the energy for all life, and they hold the thread of our world together and protect it. I feel that people who have negative experience in nature are themselves negative and are being scared out of sacred areas.

These nature spirits have no need to move in and out of dimensions. Their life is here on earth with us, attempting to teach us and holding the world together we experience as real. The more we destroy nature, the more we kill the good energies, destroying the world, their worlds and the lower vibs take over. Like attracts like: pollute a river and the nature spirits leave it and darkness falls in the form of entities who come in and keep that river hostage.  Dams I now
believe cause imbalances of energy life forms. Nature spirits can fix anything,
but we have to stop the damage we are doing in order for that to happen. We
loose power that is/was given to us to make the journey all the way, destroying
the ability of the nature world to keep the balance for us by allowing others whose energies are lower to rape our home of everything living and use all living and man made energy to do so.

I attended Biodynamic courses for farming and while I was there I took a course called Phenomenology. I have taken many classes, courses,
practices on pruning and taking care of trees. I prune trees with a focus on
communication, structure and health which includes nutrient issues of the tree. I study them before I prune them. During a Phenomenology class on trees I had a mind blowing observation about trees, the forces they live with and how these natural force/s play into everything about them. I would often return home after these classes sobbing. The shift in my consciousness and the awareness that came into me were often distressing to my beliefs or a relief of truth. Either way it was powerful time for me and trees.

Shortly after this class I had a dream about two trees that were the pine/spruce category. The trees moved around just like people with no visible features. The Trees took me into a barn and on the wall were jars of green liquid. The trees first discussed with me the medicine that can be gained by extracting the juice out of the leaves or needles. I would call this Tree juice in my waking state. I do not remember how to make it, did not come back to the waking dream with those instructions. Hopefully one day something will trigger the memory loose on how to make it.

The one Tree being was aggravated; frustrated with this world we were sharing. I could feel the anger directed at me. I got the feeling that the tree beings knew committing and coming into this world that the whole
human evolution thing was going to be a challenge for all beings at some point
and that point was now. One of the Trees was venting anger at me, I was trying
to full stay conscious in the dream while he was talking but I had a hard time
because the things he was telling me were trigging a shock to my current
awareness.

The Tree being said to me that all living things made a contract in the past to come to this reality for the highest and greatest purpose for the evolution for humans/souls. He said the rocks beings came from their rock world; the water being came from the water world or also known to some of us as the blue planet, trees came from the tree world and so forth until the canvass was created.

My understanding of the experience was that we are all the same, nothing is better than something else. Everything has power, awareness, consciousness and that life force is specialized from what ever world they come from. We are all aliens to this world, making it work and it is suppose to be together.

The Tree being wanted me to know that they love us and came here to assist us into the levels of consciousness, divinity that they are connected to.

Trees really are our friends, brothers and sisters, helpers and teachers; Scientifically it is proven we cannot live with out trees and plants. They provide us with oxygen on a planet being murdered by co2 and in some case food and medicine. Medicines that are yet to be discovered by us in the modern age, but are known to ancient societies and some still living today.
The trees breathe in the co2 and exhale oxygen. They are the lungs of our
planet! Natural purifying air filters.

Some of the blogs I write seem to be really far out there for some of you and that is okay, keep opening, listening and do not give up on yourself. Some questions that may be worth asking yourself: What happened to me?
What happened to the aware kid I once was? When I knew magic, nature and walked in the dream world?  When did I give up? When was the last time I was in the natural world just to observe it?

Today is a good day to find yourself a sacred tree my friend, sit under it for a least several hours, go there everyday for a week, allow yourself to surrender, rest, trust and let the tree being remind and regenerated you who you really are. You may even see its true self? Oh the  shock and awwwww!

All beings came here for friendship and as teachers for humans to play a game out called Earth. I suspect that in the past civilizations, farther back than we are aware of, a long time ago we were all one living together. What if salvation was returning back to the stewardship of nature and all living things? If God is the “All” then wouldn’t He/She be all living things? Then could we not see the hand of our creator in the trees, plants, stars, soil, seeds, animal/s including snakes? Why would we destroy what God created? Why would we? And knowing this why would we continue to be a part of the destruction of this beautiful place God made for us to in order to co-create with all living beings?

Maybe it is “we” that have to return to the garden of Eden within to enable our own salvation with God? Maybe we are the garden of Eden when we are in full consciousness? Maybe we can begin to know ourselves and God by taking the time to visit a tree and be open enough to listen?

Healing our Animal Pals…

horsedogcatchicken

I wanted to write a piece about the spiritual science of health and that it covers every living thing on earth. I venture to say that I know more about this kind of healing and I am using it in the context of animals today.

I have worked in the field of healing for domestic, farm animals and have also worked with these animals as aids in healing for almost 35 years now. Having began this work about age 10.  The kind/s of work I do on animals is pretty much the same as people. However animals can be great allies in healing for humans, plants, earth and water. The generals in health for animals are similar to humans but one thing that is not the same is how they communicate and not many humans are designed or open enough to hear their inner chatter with animal/s. Humans and animals have both been lumped into modern health care systems that for the most part keep the majority of illness in check, but in the long run breed levels of illness that will go ignored and eventually shorten our lives and the lives our animal brothers and sisters. I do not think there is one size fits all to health and its many levels of function for the organic materials that we are living in and this covers animals to. I am not going to debate soul or no soul about animals, which I think is a dumb ass debate since everything is energy and everything that has ever lived as energy will always be. I am in no way the expert and since energy flows, weaves, vibrates, changes constantly. I prefer to stay on the end of watching, adapting and study to provide better health remedies. I find new pieces to my health and healing puzzle every day. It is not finite.

The work I currently do with animals is as follows: medical intuitive work that mostly is about listen and watching the animal, I do not do animal communication work, restoration and recovery of health through structural actions, [AUP] a brain re-boot system that can arrest disease of all kinds, animal chiropractic studied with the man who created it in America, acupuncture and traditional Osteopathic medicine,, shamanism healing work, herbal medicine and at least 5 types of energy healing on the animals. Though I have more defined work on people for the fact of advertising, my work with animals sometimes is much more powerful for me than working on people. Yes, there are many times I must shift the health of the people who manage and master the animals in poor health. Animal/s can be collectors, clearing the health issues of the human/s on an emotional level. Over time becomes too much and the animal/s energy field is so over burdened and it dies. When we are looking at animal health it seems to me there are many more branches that simple medicine can handle. We have to really begin to open to the information that has been here for 1000 of years. It is known and what medicine has become is not very old, not well tested. I want to add here that I have witnessed what dark spirit/s, energies, and force/s, possession/s of home and people that are big serious threats for animals. Many animals die with unexplained illnesses from exposure to these entities or are beaten to death by these forces that see them as weaker. If you feel that your animal/s is being threatened it is your duty to remove them to a safe place until you get the situation under control.

In the powerful healing work by Black Elk and what he became capable of doing, what he came to know and learn, he said it came from the bear. Black Elk in many accounts said that he followed two different bears around to learn his craft. One of the bears was physical form and Black Elk would follow this bear into the forest watching the bear dig up roots and plants daily learning the physical medicine bear was doing. Black Elk learned how to use medicines hidden in the earth from bear to cure people in his tribe and many others who came to him by his exceptional reputation for healing. Bear is the master of health in the physical world; bear knows how to heal with roots, herbs and plants in the woods and the forest. The second bear was what I call the “night dream” bear or spirit bear. The dreaming world bear came to Black Elk as an alley, teacher and taught him how to use the medicines of the bear for people. Bear would come to Black Elk in the dream world as a teacher.

Dr. Jarvis says in his folk medicine book about how our pioneer ancestors learned about the plants and ways to heal when coming to America. He implies that it was watching and learning from the animals. Jarvis writes: I have come to marvel at the instinct of animals to make use of natural laws for healing themselves. They know unerringly which herbs will cure what ills. Wild creatures first seek solitude and absolute relaxation, then they then rely on the complete remedies of Nature – the medicine in plants and pure air. A bear grubbing for ferns roost; a wild turkey compelling her babies in a rainy spell to eat the leaves of the spice bush; an animal bitten by a poisonous snake, confidently chewing snakeroot – all of these typical examples. An animal with fever quickly hunts up and airy, shady place near water, there remaining quiet, eating nothing but drinking often until its health is recovered. On the other hand, an animal bedeviled by rheumatism finds a spot of hot sunlight and lies in it until the misery bakes out.

In another blog I am writing we will discuss nutritional ideas for animals and how to help them find and get what they need.

From the book, The teachings of Don Carlos: Don Juan often referred to the existence of magical animals whose magic made them practically invulnerable; they were not likely to be captured by hunters. Their power was derived from the fact that – unlike ordinary animals- they had no routines. This endowed them with the lightness, freedom, and extraordinary power. He said it would be fortunate indeed to encounter one of these beings. The same holds true for plants and other living beings. The energy of a tree, for instance, can be so powerful that it simply resting in its shade or among its branches will produce a great, generally beneficent, effect.

Lastly I wanted to write about my Great Grand Mother my first Shamanic/ Medicine Woman in my life. Still to this day she is the most powerful being I have come in contact with on earth. This story is not a new story; many of us have heard a version of this story told about a person of great awareness in our past history. However what I am writing about here is a story about Billy my early light of this world and teacher. This story was told to me by her daughter my grand mother who was a real “prophet”. I was told that my bloodline of women on my mother’s side went back before the times of Jesus and that the women in Jesus’s life were from the same bloodlines of shaman level lineage that I come from. Our women taught Jesus the arts that he later used and became famous for. We taught Jesus how to use elemental forces as in walking on water, turning water into wine, hands on healing and manifesting thousands of fish from one. What Jesus did was old school sorcery arts, elemental power and forces, the power in lives in everything and can manifest world/s, things, actions and events into the reality around us. This knowledge is used by dark energies and light. Choice is always the users. Animals seem to be not easily possessed by dark forces and why they seem to be harmed first or removed first by dark forces.

I was told that Billy my great grand mother not only healed people, earth but animals as well. She believed in the power that animals had to help, heal themselves and our job was to connect them to the power within and take notes, assisting the animal in its own healing. It should be mentioned that all healers are facilitators and magicians. Whenever people brought the sick to us our family it was out of desperation. We were never fully accepted into the world we live to much religious doctrine to keep the masses under control and asleep for centuries and invested serious fear about us. Our people, my people were not the norm even to this day. There are controllers of the main stream field/s of alternative medicine and they have made ever attempt to constantly threatening me, destroying my work and just project darkness towards me. My work surpasses what can be found in the main stream alternative, it is impeccable and it threatens the foundation of the main stream which is also propaganda built. I cannot even imagine the strength the women doing this work before me what they endured but I can only be great’ful that they were impeccable and their medicine flows through me and some others to this day. now the rest of the story.

One day a man brought his prize horse that was very sick to Billy. Nothing the man was doing including having the horse looked over medical personnel was of any benefit to the horse. The man did not want to loose his horse and in this mans last ditch effort took the horse to Billy. Billy told the man to leave the horse and come back in several days to retrieve it.

Immediately Billy looked over the horse, building a connection, a friendship of trust with the being. Billy sat and watched the horse for a full day but nothing came to her about the state of the horse, there was nothing she found visibly to do for it. The next day Billy harnessed the horse and proceeded to take the horse on a long walk through the forest. Billy hoped that the horse’s awareness would wake up, kick in and help her to find the medicine to heal what was disturbing the horse’s health. After several hours the horse began to lean its head towards the ground licking at certain plants in the forest. Billy took this as a sign that these plants the horse was signaling to were what the horse was requesting for her to pick. Every time the horse would lean down and lick at the plant/s, Billy would take the plant/s gently from the earth, placing them into a bundle she carried. The next day Billy returned to her home with horse. She emptied the massive bundle onto the ground. She let the horse give her indications on the medicine plants, roots, and herbs. The horse made no direct indications. Billy lit up her big metal cauldron outside, placed pure water from the stream than ran past her home and then added the medicinal plants into the cauldron. Today we would call this steeping. When the cauldron cooled she brought the horse to it and let the horse drink the medicinal mixture. The horse drank every bit. The next day Billy again made the mixture and the horse drank it. There was a smell that started to come out of the horse and within several days a tumor “like” clump was eliminated by the horse. The man arrived several days later and his horse was completely changed around. Billy explained what had happened and that the man should continue the mixture until the bundle of herbs she handed him was gone. The horse went on to live on for a long time, it was said that the man died much sooner than the horse.

Sometime healing takes us to another level of awareness that does not make sense to our minds. However if used, followed can lead us to wellness in ways we never imagined it can be applied eventually to the world around us and all that is including in our reality especially our animal counter parts. Maybe if we are inclined to adopt a new perspective we could include animals into the sacred world which teaches us and units all living things. And if we can let go of our ego/s and our belief of supremacy over this world maybe we could share in the healing, health and wellness with animal being/s. I suspect we might actually learn something!

Run to the Sun…

galactic sun

Today woke up early this am before the sun was up. I walked out of the apartment building across the road to a vacant lot and watched as the first rays of light coming from behind the mountain sprung up into the clouds. I have to say that today was the most beautiful Sun rise I have ever seen. Maybe one of the first sun rises I have been fully present for ever. I am becoming ever more present as I live and everything continues to grow deeper levels awareness that I can see in visible forms and it is glorious!

When I woke up before the Sun I knew I was going to be writing this blog on my take on the run to the Sun today. I want to let you know that I am not of first nation blood. I practice Shamanism and the first nation practices that I have learned. What I state in the blogs is my own take on these systems of power that I have used for my own healing journey. Please do not take what I give as the full truth, the only truth and when trying some of the practices be open with them and allow them to teach you. In all things there is medicine in the form of energy an in order to really know you must make friends with it. This medicine covers clouds, sky, Sun, plants, earth, air, colors and all that you see, feel, hear and come to know. The friendship has to be accepted. You have to show proof of wanting to learn about the medicine by committing yourself and time. You have to show up, be present and open. Americans minds are not geared in long term and we have a hard time focusing on one thing for duration of time. These kinds of practices can aid you in being present, in the moment and committing yourself and making new friends with powerful healing abilities and knowledge you would never find anywhere else on Earth.

Today we are going to explore our new friend the Sun who is a powerful alley to have. By doing this morning practice you can increase you daily energy. It is an amazing healing tool when sick for any level/s of illness and disease. It just might be the medicine you have been missing. Once the Sun being accepts you the light will change when approaching the Sun in the future you will be in a different range of awareness or dimension/s of reality. It takes practice to get it right, get you right with the Sun. I am going to add something here that is a suspicion of mine. You can take this for what feels right to you the reader. I believe that people who get skin cancer are not aligned with the Sun. You are fighting the Physical sun and not aligned with the ether and astral aspects of the Sun which is the spirit force in the Sun. We spend days out in the day under the sun, very rarely it is for bliss of your relationship with the Sun and usually zero acknowledgement of this being who gives us life on earth. Our human bodies require vitamin D it is one of the essential nutrients we cannot live without. Vitamin D prevents many cancers and many other illnesses we get due to lack of Sun exposure and collection of vitamin D in our bodies. After years of doing my modified practice the light of the sun is not dimmed but has a different way about it and it is because I have moved into the light of Sacredness with the Sun who heals me, teaches me and gives me health. I became friends with the Sun and now I walk in the Sacred light of knowledge with it.

This is a practice done by the Navajo first nation tribe. It was told to me. It is done by waking up early before the Sun comes up and running, jogging in the direction of the rising Sun. You constantly face the direction of the Sun rise while doing this, never turning your back to the East, to the Sun. Stop running after the Sun has fully risen. You then bend over and touch the earth with your hands, grounding, loving energy and gratitude for the Earth Mother. Then raising your arms up above your head, palms open and facing the Sun you allow the Sun to penetrate you.

This is where my practice comes in since I know it much better than trying to explain something I have not worked with as much. In the end the common aspect is the teacher and that is the Sun.

I had a brain tumor, other health issues that have been completely healed. I used diet and healing practices. Since I could not run, I woke up, went outside and faced East in the mornings waiting for the Sun to rise. If I was up early enough I would have a tobacco pray/s smoke. I am not a smoker I strictly use it for prayer and ceremony. Pray Smoke is   another topic I will discuss at a later blog. The key here is modify, do what you can. The intention is what matters most. Your intention to be there waiting for your friend that is bringing you healing energy and your daily information from the cosmos. Like a computer down load, but you are the hard drive and the Sun is providing you the new and latest health app. This gives your whole being information you need about the changes that take place daily on the ether, astral and physical planes of our realties. This information your cells, DNA, RNA take up and your systems respond making adjustments needed to adapt to the environments happening all around you.

By the way the ancient, first nation people know science; they know what is happening when they do these practices. Be very careful in your thinking about these people, they know things that science is only on the verge of knowing!

Okay so here we go with my version of this practice.

I wait for the Sun to rise, I stand there and if I am not feeling well when I do get up it is the first place I go, outside and face the Sun. I bend over touch the Earth grounding myself and sending gratitude. I stand up facing the Sun with arms raised and palms towards the Sun. I allow the astral energies and the ether energies to penetrate me and sometimes I see it in my inner mind or inner sight as waves of flames usually orange and yellow in color. These Flames move into me, all over me to all my places and spaces. Also into my energy field/s and energy bodies: emotional, mental, ether, astral, chakras………..all of it, engulfing me in an astral fire. You may notice similar experiences as you do this practice, be patient it takes time.

I am not engaged with the part of the sun you see in the sky, but the energy, forces, astral and ether parts of the Sun in the sky that dance with my energy parts.

Lastly I gentle grab handfuls of the energy off the Sun and rub it onto parts of my body that need extra energy. On my head, my heart, back of my neck, lower back are areas that I pull energy to and place it on by rubbing it onto. It may look like what smudging ourselves does, with more reaching out, pulling and grabbing the ether and astral energies towards me and then rubbing on to the areas that need a bit extra. I know from working with my own body that areas where there is tension, tightness are areas that have blocked energy and this is where I will work the Sun energy into. I always thank whatever medicine I am working with. Not just a Thank You but a Full, whole hearted, healed being Thank you.

That is basically how I do it, however there are twist, turns and more to my private practice that is not for sharing here. It is part of my medicine and so there are parts of my practice that I will not share. If I give you too much information you will not be able to have your own experience/s in making friends with in this case the Sun. It is vitally important in building your own medicine, your own understanding, your own healing to know from within and you can only do this by doing it for yourself.

Unconscious Imprinting…

cherryblossom1-300x225

 

This is a photo of water that was placed in contact with a cherry blossom and then frozen.  I would have to say that a cherry blossom has a beautiful effect on water.

I woke up early this morning with the idea for this blog, something I feel is seriously important if we want to have a conversation about food — clean, green food.  I am not going to go into all the aspects of how we and the things around us imprint on water.  You will have to click the links to study that information.  Most of you reading this may have already had some experience with the water imprinting process.

http://www.whatthebleep.com/crystals/

http://www.unitedearth.com.au/watercrystals.html

What I want to discuss is that every living thing, which includes soil, contains a certain amount of water.   Human cells are 65-90% water.   Many plants have an even higher water content.

If water has a sort of “memory” and can be imprinted, what does that mean for living things that are made up largely of water?

Research done by Russian scientists, including Leonid Izvekov and Vlail Kaznacheyev,  shows the serious implications to us, our planet, the water around us that we drink, and the food we eat.  Watch “Water: The Great Mystery.”  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlWboI_0obk)

Now, if we can imprint water with thoughts or energies, and everything that is living on the earth, including ourselves, is mostly water, what has been imprinted on this water in our food that we do not know about or completely understand?  For me this is a no-brainer.   I have spent the last 25 years doing “Energetic and Structural Medicine.”  For others, it may be a hard idea to swallow, and that is OK.  I see energy and the imprinting of it as the source of what makes us better or what makes us sicker.

A few years ago I was sitting on a porch eating an apple.  It was an organic apple, one that I purchased from Whole Foods.  As I was munching along I became sad, down in the dumps, with a feeling that the whole world was wrong and unfair.  It had been a perfect day.  I had been gardening — digging in the dirt, which is the closest to Heaven I get here on Earth.  I had drunk plenty of water (which I began imprinting with joy starting in 2006), and had just stopped to rest and have bit of lunch, which included an apple.

I began to explore my own mind looking for signs, thoughts, old issues surfacing, something creating a trigger in me for this sad feeling.  After scanning all possible data for what the source might be, a stroke of insight hit me square! The down-in-the-dumps trigger was the apple.  Someone had imprinted the water in the apple!

I know that my mouth must have been gaping open something like a stroke victim.  I started seeing a mental picture, a timeline of events in the life of this apple, and it went backwards.   I saw the apple handler at Whole Foods taking it out of the box, thinking about his life.   With each thought, the apple was imprinted with information and emotion.

The next image was of a worker picking the apple in South America.  I wondered how he had been feeling when he picked it.  What was the imprint on the apple at that moment?

The last flash was of the land owner of the orchard where the apple was grown.  He was crying.  Maybe someone had died?  Maybe he was afraid that the bank was going to take his land?  Maybe he was just tired?

For the past two years, I’ve been thinking about imprinting whenever I am choosing water-based food. When I choose an apple, I now ask my higher self to help me pick the apple with the highest amount of nutrition and the highest imprinting of love and joy.

I am learning to farm, so I now prefer food from the farms I go to.  I know where what I am eating is grown, who it was grown by, and sometimes I get to pick it myself with the highest amount of love imprinting I can muster. This is my number one reason to own my own land and grow all of my own food.

Imprinting your own food after you get it home may be the next best thing you can do.  I suggest doing it at least twice.  The first time you take an item out of the bag, hold it, and using green heart-energy, send it all the love you have. Then, when you are ready to eat or cook the item, do it again. You will have the greatest effect on what you are putting in your body by your own imprinting.

When I water a garden and I have to use city water, it worries me.  I turn the situation around by praying, sending waves of love and thought to the water.

My desire is that every imprint on food be one of love.  As soon as seeds are planted, they begin to take on water, so from day one you can imprint with whatever you desire using water.  If you are struggling with illness, grow your own food and imprint it with healing light and love.

When I was raising meat birds I would spend time making sure their every need was taken care of in a loving way.  I blessed the water for them.   I imprinted them with thoughts and words of how beautiful they were.  Before I slaughtered them I honored them, thanking them and hugging them with love.

I feel that the energetic imprint is much more important than the nutrition factor.  So what if your apple’s nutritional level matches the highest standards and it was grown organically?  Was the person who picked it hung over?  Angry?  Overworked?   Unhealthy?  Stressed out?  For me, the overall value of the apple would be determined by the imprint; I really do not want any more anger or unconscious programming.

The work I do imprinting my food is the only thing I can control about it.   That can be enough to give me hope to run that extra mile during grim times!

Energy Screening for many Reasons…

Perf Screen 2

Since energy is my forte, I spend most of my time studying energies, fixing energies, changing energies and sometimes adapting energies.  The focus in this lifetime for me includes the training I’ve received from teachers, mentors, and other assorted helpers which mostly centers around energy and how to handle, adapt and change it.  It reminds me in a fun way of Mickey Mouse in the movie “Fantasia”.

One of the most interesting energy usages comes from a technique I learned from a Lakota medicine woman that I apprenticed with for over a year when I was about 23 years old.  ”Screening” is the name she used for this technique.   I learned her technique and over the ensuing years, I have modified, developed and adapted it so it can be used in a variety of situations.  It is Energy Medicine, a powerful remedy to cure the undercurrent of issues/ideas which we tend to battle out of a belief that they are somehow out of our control.

When you first start working with this idea, thought, imagining, you’ll want to use creativity.  Make it your own; own it.  Imagination utilizes the right hemisphere of  the brain, present moment, the God part of the brain, if you will, to activity work,  divinity magic in the world of solid form (left hemisphere).

I have added a few links so you can get a visual image of the kind of screen I create.   These links should give you some guidelines when creating or visually thinking about designing your own screening method.  Since I’ve been working with screening for a while, I have become extremely proficient to the point where the beings I work with on other planes actually shoot the images into my mind.  This direct connection actually bypasses much of the early work that I used to undertake to get the information needed.

The screens can be as large as you can imagine for the task at hand.  For example, let’s say you’re screening your yard because you have excess insect issues.  Your screen may be as large as the area you need to cover.  On the other hand, if you’re using a screen to work on a mouse, you may come up with something that resembles a tea screen for steeping tea.  Over the years, I have used a wide variety of screens of every size and shape.   Sometimes they have a tight mesh and sometimes they’re wide open such as links in a chain.  The colors of the screens can also vary depending on the energy needed.  I always allow the beings to show me what we’ll be using as far as size, mesh, color and type of material they’re created with.

When screening you are crossing over into a 64 dimensional level.   You are clearing energies that in the beginning you may not see.  In the beginning, you may need to imagine more, create a bit more in your mind.  Eventually you will grasp it and it will no longer be as much work.  The being(s) who can assist you are what you’re  comfortable with.  Use a being that you trust or feel good about.  Examples for these beings and the physical forms they may take are entities such as angels, mythical gods, fairies, elves, light rays or light balls.  Choose whatever you like, whatever makes you feel you have the help and support for the work you need to do.   Everyone’s work and choices will different.

Questions are often good.  I actually use screening for most of my work.  When I am working on a person, animal or a piece of land, I may have no idea where to start or what will be the most helpful for this situation.  I will often ask the question, What does this person, situation need?  What is being blocked here?  To what level is the person, structure clogged?  What is the best use of screening right now?  A voice or a thought will produce the answer.  Sometimes the answer may be short and sweet.

Next, two things can happen.   One scenario is that I will call in my light beings team to show me and help me create the screen or screens needed.  The highest number of screens I’ve ever been involved with at one time is 74, one at a time.  In most cases only one, two or possibly three are needed.

Sometimes the light beings team may show up on their own and notify me of a job or a screening assignment.  I help them by forming it and bringing it into the physical world and just act as an anchor at times.

Another important item that I should mention is that, at least in my work, the screens are usually some kind of metal such as  platinum, gold, silver, or material combinations that I cannot identify.  The screens look different, feel different and are a variety of colors.

Now for the mini blog demo.

I have a dog that I am not sure how to help. I ask a question to my light beings.  “What kind of screening is needed to help this dog”?  Then I may hear or see an image.  In my make-believe scenario, let’s say I get the message, “In the tenth layer the dog has picked up a disease from its human”.  This would mean to me that the dog took on an energetic disease for the human, for whatever reason, a long time before it manifested as a 3-D or third layer disease in the body.  I would prepare for the work by visualizing or seeing my light beings. We would create the metal, form it, and color it.  We would make as many screens as we needed based on the beings who handle the tenth layer to clear not only that level or layer, but all 64.  Each screen is made individually for different reasons.  Then together as a team we’ll put our energies into the screen by lifting it to the top or at the end of the 64 layers.  Sometimes, for whatever reason, I cannot get there on my own.  So I will put my energy into the mix and wait for the screen to come into my visual levels.  As the screen drops through it clears, cuts out, repairs, and evens out all of the issues that we’re clearing and focusing upon.

Each screen has its own time frame.  I have found that the tighter the mesh, the longer and slower it moves down.   Conversely,  the larger the mesh, the faster it moves.  When the screen has moved all the way down or through, then there’s usually a “cleaner being” who will take the screens to be transformed later on into something else.  The energy is just transformed. I will ask them to sweep up areas of debris that I do not want in my space after I’ve finished my work.  I also make it a point to have my work areas  “professionally cleaned” by the spirit world.

A woman who was also involved with the medicine woman at the same time as I was “back in the day” actually was the person who used the screening on her yard. She was having serious issues with bugs taking over everything she planted.  They kept eating everything and nothing would survive.  Our teacher advised her to try to screen them out.  Sure enough, after a couple of hours of using the screening methods, the number of invading insects started to decline.  The next day they were completely gone and did not return.  She had cleared the energy at the level that was causing the issues with the insects.  On another note,  a family of doves moved in the next day, multiplied and stayed for years.  Obviously, the clearing brought in help and support by the birds as well.  The possibilities are endless.

Give it a try, let me know how it goes.  If you have any questions, please ask me.   Also, if you find any new uses for screening, please let me know as well.

Happy Screening !!

Nutritional labels and the Microbs within…

labelbridge

I have been doing alternative care work with animals since I was eight years old and have been working on people for over 25 years now.  The subject that I’m going to be discussing came up in one of my bio-dynamic classes a few months ago.  While on the subject of nutrition, labeling was brought up. I have to say that what I heard stunned me, but I knew deep inside that it was the truth.

So I felt that it was imperative to bring it to the blog and allow others to read this information and act accordingly. It may take some time for this to sink in; I know it did for me.  It shows me that what I still believe in is going on around me, but time and time again the proof is that it is a big lie, a hoax. Nutrition is a serious part of our lives and we are not getting any!

Disease is the breakdown of the microbe  forces in the system. Inflammation is the outcome of the breakdown.  All disease in the body starts with inflammation and the aging process is one of inflammation.  If you’re able to slow down or completely eradicate the inflammation, you will become disease free and will look 30 years younger.  Nutrient and a vegetable-based diet are the keys.  Just because you eat vegetables or what you may think is a “good diet” does not mean it has nutrition in it unless the food is grown by farmers who are aware of the soil values.  Even if the food is considered “organic” it may not have nutrient in it.  You may not be aware of this, but leaf veggies lose all of the nutrient three days after they are cut from the plant.  How old is the lettuce in your fridge in that plastic bag?

The following is a short and brief explanation of what inflammation is. When Western medicine looks at your blood to diagnose your disease, they are looking at a cellular level, at the cell.  This is why most treatments do not work.  You have to look deeper, much deeper.  “Alternative medicine” which is actually ”traditional medicine” in some parts of the world such as Asia, Russia, India and all Native peoples, dates back over 10,000 years.  Western medicine which is typically what you will find at the doctor’s office or hospital is less than a 100 years old.

Some Alternative practitioners use a method called dark field hematology. They prick your finger, get a drop of blood, and put it on a piece of glass and look at it under a microscope.  This technique goes much deeper than the cell.  It is more effective than drawing 40 tubes of blood and Western doctors cannot seem to find anything wrong with you.   However, you know, you feel that something is not right.

I have worked on both sides of this equation.  I spent five months in a hospital doing blood work, lab work as an intern. What I witnessed there was frightening and Western medicine says that alternative is barbaric!  There’s no love, no caring  in those places, just dollar bills.  I only practice the alternative and have most of my life.  Especially in the last ten years since being diagnosed with a brain tumor, I am very serious about what kind of treatments I do, what choices I make about my body, and who I go to for it.  It took me years to heal myself.  And the bottom line is this: nutrition and diet are the only things that can reverse what ails you, period.  You may be spirit in a body, but you cannot exist here without this body and the body needs clean, green, nutrient-rich food to run its biological functions.  Otherwise, the body slowly dies.

Microbe 101.  In every cell you have a microbe. When the body is healthy, the microbe stays in the middle of the cell.  The pressure is perfect for them in the red cell.   When water and oxygen are being absorbed by the cell, the microbes are happy.  Stress, disease, injuries can cause an astronomical shift in the cells.   Not enough water or exercise can also result in the body taking in less air and will disrupt the cells’ environment.

Thinking is also on this list.  Negative thinking, fear, and stress produce the cortisol hormone.  Think of this along the same line as having battery acid running through your system which causes serious damage.  When the cell becomes tired, damaged, or is not being fed proper nutrient in the food supply, the microbe  leaves the cell and inflammation is created.  I am mainly focusing on the red blood cells.   If this course of action continues over an extended period of time, say, 20 years,  the cells that are the most damaged will develop into cancer and many other diseases.  I define the word ”disease” as anything that happens to the body that is countering the health, vitality and energy of the body.  Bruce Lipton has many lectures on this topic.  You may want to watch his stuff on the net.

There is another very serious issue here as well.  When the microbe leaves the cell and the cell can no longer absorb water or air it becomes limp and will stick to other cells.   This is inflammation.  When this happens, it causes a red cell stroke as the cells cannot get through the channels.  I have known many people who had a stroke and were cut open to find nothing that would have caused it, such as placque on the walls, etc.      This is because it was a red cell stroke due to heavy amounts of inflammation blocking and clogging the blood flow channels.

Fresh, green local organic produce grown by people who love to farm, harvested and eaten right away have oxygen, the max amount of nutrient and filtered water taken in by the plant.  These are the three crucial ingredients needed by the microbes and cells.  The gentleman who authored “The Maker’s Diet” talks about having five diseases by age 25 and was dying.  He came from a long line of western doctors who were unable to help him.  He ended up eating rich, black soil /dirt to heal himself and within six months was completely healed.  This is because the soil was rich in nutrient and healthy microbes that his system needed.

In chemical soil, there are no microbes.   In overworked soil, there are no microbes.   In one crop farms, even organic farms, there’s not enough microbes.   That is why sprays and all sorts of chemical fertilizers need to be added because there are not enough microbes to do the job naturally.  This is also the case with your body.   The microbes are the center of your body and how it will operate.  If you do not give the microbes what they need, you will end up taking many chemicals in the form of pills, creams and treatments that will further destroy the microbes.  Radiation kills the microbes that we need to bring health to our bodies.  When you go to the airport and go through the radiation X-ray machine, this will damage and kill the already sick microbes in your body which may ultimately result in your death sentence in the long run.

In some spiritual science circles there is a direct connection to microbes in the soil and water in the form of rain.  Since the 1900s, studies were done by brilliant minds about the correlation to microbes in healthy soil and the ecosystem which brought rain to it and the soil that was lacking microbes by the manner in which it was farmed and the drought that was brought on by it.

The label which I posted on this blog demonstrates what I am talking about right now, this part of the blog. What I am about to tell you should change your thoughts about buying anything in any kind of packaging ever again and that your diet focus should be on growing your own food and eating a vegetable-based diet.  When labeling products first came out in the 50s, it was to legitimately tell consumers the nutrient values in the product after it was processed. Products like orange juice that have been on the market a very long time have never been forced to update the labeling from the first time it was analyzed.  This means that any orange juice company can just add the 1950′s label of the original values onto their product without actually doing their own product study to discover what it truly does and does not contain now in 2012.

The big picture here is that the orchards in which oranges are grown are mono culture, one crop.  They no longer have any nutrient in them!  By the time they process it and cook it to make it safe, any nutrient that may have been present is completely gone.  A plant and tree will produce a fruit.   However, this does not mean that the soil has nutrient or microbes.  The same can be said for the plant producing the fruit and the fruit itself.  We have created a culture of food where we put chemicals on the soil and plants to make them think they are getting what they need to grow and produce fruit, when, actually, we have tricked them.

Looking at labels is a joke!   The older the product, the longer it has been on the market, the less nutrient it will have and companies are not being forced to re-evaluate their products as they are allowed to use the existing labels already on products.  Obviously new products such as pomegranate juice may have more nutrient if the labels were made in the 80′s.  If consumers knew the truth, they would not buy lies.

Beware and be aware of what you’re buying.  Ask questions!  Get the facts and grow your own food or as much as you can.  If you heal the microbes in your own soil and grow the plants you eat, then they will go into your body and heal the microbes within.  If you follow this advice you will never need a doctor again.

A Season 4 everything…

Urban_Farm_Project_Logo2a_1280x720_HD (2)

4 everything there is a season:

FALL

is a good time: to have your soil evaluated; to prune roses, shrubs and bushes; to apply compost and put mulch or chips on areas of the yard that need nutrient; to remove plants and trees that are dead or not growing well ; to have / use biodynamic organic sprays for leaves to help fruit to mature; to cover sensitive plants for winter; to deal with erosion areas; to glean remaining produce; to collect and dry seeds; to build a winter cold frame; to replace organic material in your cold frame; to plant in your cold frame; to plant winter crops  as seedlings.

WINTER

is a good time: to prune trees and cut back last year’s growth; to create an effective food storage operation so that your fall and winter produce will last as long as you need it to; in late winter, to start sprouting seeds to plant as seedlings in spring gardens; to create a culinary herb window garden; to plan your summer garden; to build containers to harvest water.

SPRING

is a good time: to have soil evaluated; to plant new trees and plants; to build raised beds; to put in a new garden area; to have / use biodynamic organic sprays for soil fertility and root growth; to dig up rocky, sandy and clay areas and bring in new soil; to plant deep- rooting plants for erosion areas; to harvest rain / snow water; to direct seed in cold frames to grow into seedlings for summer gardens.

SUMMER

is a good time: to have soil evaluated; to have biodynamic organic sprays applied for soil fertility and root growth; to have / use biodynamic organic sprays for increased growth and fruit; to deal with molds and pests; to harvest produce; to collect and dry seeds; to build a cold frame for winter crops; to collect your seeds for a winter garden; transplant spring seedlings; to start winter seedlings by direct seeding; to remove the used organic materials from cold frame and put it on an area of your yard that needs compost.

I was creating a flyer for the Urban Farm Project here in Reno I had the  idea of putting on it the farming, gardening activities of every season in an attempt to get people 1) more motivated about their urban domains of food production and 2) to place the  flyer on their refridgerator as a reference on what they can do every season or perhaps hiring COE to help them!

Feel free to print a copy off this blog. Put it somewhere to remind you of where to focus your attention each season. It is not a completed list. If I have missed something feel free to let me know what it was and I will add it to the season that it belongs.

The second section includes my urban garden bed preparation for winter.

1) Built a block boarder to hold in soil that was eroding all over the sidewalks and out into the city drain. I used a run of the mill block that you see everywhere. Since I already had them, I used them. You can harvest bricks, pavers and an assortment of boarder creating items from houses being remodeled and habitat for humanity in your area usually has recycled building materials.

A few months ago the house across the street from where COE and I have been renovating began to be remodeled. I approached the new owner about the piles of bricks and pavers being thrown off the house and around the property. Since he was not interested in them, he wanted a modern look he was more than happy to let me have as many as I wanted. For me it is very important to be sustainable and thrifty. For the new owner he saved himself quit a bit of labor as well as dumping costs by me taking the materials off his hands. Whether you need the items or not at the time you come across them should not be an issue. You can store them, share them with others and if you are going to create and urban farm you will find so many uses for these used materials.

2) The bricks created a raised bed and since there was not enough soil in the garden bed. I had to bring in soil from other areas of the yard where too much soil was an issue. I added several wheel barrows of depleted soil. I will be building many different types of layers on top of the soil to fortify it. It is not necessary to have good soil, nature and I can make it good soil by spring.

I left about 4 inches of room from the top of the bricks to the soil and will be filled in with soil makings.

3) I was lucky to have piles of horse poopy here in the property that was delievered here a few months ago. I spread a medium layer of horse dropings over the soil. There was a bail of straw that was left from last fall which was rotting slowly.  Rottening is perfect to rebuild new soil. I spread out all the straw on top of the soil and horse poopy. I was able to use the straw. Otherwise I might have had to move it, take it to the dump more than likely. Again sustainabilty, using what you have, using what you can find close, using what someone else might have, saving money, saving labor, saving time and most of all saving out planet. The less we consume the less is manufactured and the less that ends up as waste in a land fill some where.

4) I had some old stumps and limbs, old dead wood laying around. Instead of tossing the old wood into the old garbage can I placed big chunks all over the garden bed. The old wood will break down slower giving the bed long term fuel, food to break down and turn into soil over time. Remember not to add materials that have toxic chemicals, those items should be removed from your yard properly, discarded properly of.

5) I watered the garden bed area to keep the material from blowing away and to assist with the breaking down. While I watered I thought good thoughts to the water coming out of the hose onto the garden bed. I thought good thoughts to the soil, the insects, the materials and to the forces of nature that will be working to break it all down and turning it into the best garden soil. This will support every need of the plants and provide very nutrient rich food for the bodies of the people eating it and in some cases animals as well.

6) There is a load of rich compost coming in a few days to place on top of what is there so far. It will get about a 3 inch cover of compost over the top. If you have a place in which you can create your own compost piles, go for it. The more your hand and heart are involved with what grows. Creating whats needed on your own land makes better medicine for the earth and will provide you with medicine as food back to you. More water. More good thoughts.

7) Lastly another layer of chips, wood chipswill come and be added to the top. Water and good thoughts.

In Nevada it can be extremely dry even in winter, check your garden bed weekly to make sure there is enough moisture to create the break down of the materials. Winterizing your garden bed for spring should be an annual activity.

Inner city Side walk Garden…

somerset and 347 update 036 (800x600)

It has been a couple of weeks since the last post. Many amazing insights have come to me. I am digesting  and allowing my inner processes to reveal all into  the blog; new videos, consulting for urban property owners in the Reno area, and an Urban Farm Project web page that should hit the net this week! Big changes here, as it all unfolds for the highest and greatest good. Just know there is more to come, my readers, more to come. I started classes on biodynamic farming and wow! wow! wow! Can I just say my life will never be the same?! I am gearing up to bring you new truths about the world in which we live! Now to the blog!

In this blog you will find before and after photos of an urban city domain that I have been renovating for 2 1/2 months.My focus has become about edible and  medicinal plants as companion plantings. The before shots were taken 2 1/2 months ago. We are going to just look at the beds outside of the fence, the front street beds, the inner part of the yard is another blog down the road!

When I began working on these beds there were many  obstacles. Reno is a desert… very demanding of the farmer. The house was built in 1905, which means a number of things: too much soil in the beds, mostly sand; no nutrient in the soil (pretty dead and lifeless); the dirt was hard as a rock and the cherry on top was that the yard sat on an old river bed full of those great round river rocks! yippeeeee

The front beds were more like enemies, they were armed and ready for battle. I was going to have to use those present moment techniques I have learned to stay in the game. My mental chant “Carry Water and Chop Wood” breath, breath, breath……..

The first tasks on the list was to remove soil? How much soil? I discovered that you can read books but in the end it is the land and you. This can lead to situations in farming that you’re lack of experience creates confusion. However, you are the only one who can appropriately make decisions it in order to grow and provide food and herbs to sustain and heal.  What needs to be done should be based on your eyes, ears, smell, feel and, ultimately for me,  intuition.

The depletion of the soil was so extreme the only sensible measure I could take was to remove 6 to 10 inches of soil. I hit those river rocks at about 4 inches, and I suspect the people across the road heard a few cuss words!

My Dad always taught me to do a job right. How I feel inside about what I am doing is how to do the job right. I see why so many people take the easy way, the short way and are angry, with an unsuccessful result. I was going  hold fast  to  ”doing the job right the first time.”  In order to do it right ,I must dig the soil all the way out. The front beds found my weaknesses, but in the end,  helped me recapture past experiences and recover energy that had been blocked. Energy blocks that I now realize had kept me repeating cycles of frustration, giving up on myself and blocking my own life’s energy.

While I am engaged in the practice of urban farming I always offer gratitude. Always thank the water, the soil, the earth for helping you to clear any energies. These energies can stand in the way of your life. Farming has given me my life back with great respect to all things, even myself. I had many a prayer smoke with the greatest thanks to the great spirit, during the renovation of the front beds.  I became  always thank you no matter what!

I shoveled the old dirt out and wagon’d it to the back into a pile. Later, when I have a chance, I will turn it into a compost,  regenerating and using it in the future on other parts of the yard. When all the dirt was out I applied a new top soil. I made this top soil from 1/2 completed compost, fir mulch and a potting soil. I mixed them all together and filled the long beds. Later on, as the plants in the beds grew, I applied another inch  of fir mulch and kelp meal. Here in the Reno area we have alkaline soils, with alkaline water. We need to add in much needed acids to get the balance so plants will grow. Just like the human body: too much alkaline and the heart will stop and too much acid and the heart will stop. We are so similar to soil and plants in what we need to grow, seed, bloom and bear fruit. Since we eat the plants, does it not make sense that they need to be perfectly balanced to give us the proper balance. Kelp meal is the most amazing nutrient! If I have time in the future I will blog just about kelp meal!

I am becoming a bit of an old school farmer. I do not want to buy what I can make or cultivate from my own yard or someone else’s. The first plants I planted were yarrow. Yarrow is my friend… what I do learn about it and from it blows my lid off! You can use yarrow blooms to create nitrogen preps for soil. You can mow it creating an herb lawn that mulches itself, thus adding nutrient in the long-term to soil. It holds water and can be planted around sensitive areas that need to be cooler. Yarrow can bring ancient nutrients up from the depths of the earth to feed and nourish other plants. You can make ales out of yarrow for stomach ailments. Yarrow gives and gives. I prefer the wild yarrow that is a non-hybrid.  It has white flowers. Yarrow grows wild!  Dig it up and plant it where you need it  most.

Next, I found a large area of penny royal in the yard. I love penny royal.  It has a great smell and bees love it. It helps, like yarrow,  and attracts bees to your yard. This is necessary for growing a deluxe garden. You can rub it onto the skin as a natural bug repellent. Penny royal grows fast and is a good ground cover, helping to cool down areas for trees and plants that enjoy cooler moist climates.

Then, I planted onions, every kind of onion i could get my hands on. There are large white and purple onions, shallots and green onions. Remember I am gathering all of these plants from other people and places. My first choice would be from a bio dynamic farm…d  plants have a vibration of love.

A serious issue of domain was the bugs. Sugar ants, carpenter ants, earwigs…….. Creating a front bed barrier to new bugs migrating in was imperative, the onions have done a master job in creating this barrier. When the onions move in the yarrow and penny royal literally sang. I had no idea what great companions onions would be and no idea what companion planting can really bring to the table until I felt the perfection.

Lastly I direct -seeded calendula, and with the right soil and the companions already the calendula has grown so fast!  It’s beauty has warmed the cold heart. I am looking forward to using it in healing balms. If there are any words I could write to express the glory of growing herbs, it is in the moment when you have a need for them and you can go pick them, your own medicine, and make it up right there. Last night our doggy, Gin Gin, came home from the vet. She had her lady parts fixed. The razor the vet used to shave her left burn marks. I went out picked a few leaves of comfry, mashed it up, added a bit of grape seed oil and applied it to her burn areas. The results were nothing short of perfection. The best is that if she licks it no big deal!

Maintenance:    I cultivate the soil in the beds once a month, water and will be putting a layer of chips and mulch and inch deep over it for winter. Everything will reseed and be big and thicker next year. The front beds have become a slice of heaven for all of us; the grower, the owner, the people walking and driving by. It is like a hope, a dream for a better day, a sigh of relief in a world of stress, pain and frustration. I have created an energy of delight to the senses…the eyes, smell, taste and touch. Peace surrounds me, from  the plants, from what I am doing, and why I choose the methods I use. People drive by, turn around and visit the yard. Maybe the real change we need has to do with the plant and tree world. It appears to me that they create life, which is love, respect and reverence .  I am finding that I just need to be aware, give them nourishment and  love.  This way the green world will teach me everything i need to know.

In the near future I am teaching classes on medicinal plants and planting with harvesting for healing as my goal. For now I am just listening to them and and allow the teaching they offer to me to make me whole.

This week the Urban Farm Project had it’s first job and is launching a traveling consulting company, specializing in edible and medicinal plants in urban areas. You never can tell where life will lead you? You never know what you will do or how you will do it? You never know until you learn to Chop that wood and Carry that water, which means to just focus on what is front of you, learn about it, immerse yourself in it, be it, and become it!
