Mugwort 2 - Masonry No Sidebar

Mugwort – A Seriously Psychic Superhero – Herb of Dreams

mugwort 170811 1280 300x300 - Masonry No Sidebar

Today I’d like to share with you a seriously amazing, healing herb that entered my life recently, and has enhanced it greatly. Mugwort. You might have heard it mentioned in Harry Potter.

Mugwort is one of the most mysterious herbs in the botanical world because of its seemingly supernatural properties. But it’s also sweet to the taste, which makes it a wonderful tea sip down when you’re winding down for the day.

Mugwort goes by many names: Cronewort, Common Wormwood, St Johns’ Plant,  Artemisia Vulgaris and various others. It is held in high regard all throughout history as a powerful physical and metaphysical healer, and is mentioned countless times in mythology. Rightly so, as it’s an incredibly ally that you likely have growing in your garden as a “weed”. These common people plants         ( Plants that grow in excess wherever humans roam ) are there for good reason, not to be shunned and disregarded as pests, but rather appreciated and revered for their tenacity and abundance.

Mugwort is one of these people plants, it grows worldwide in temperate climates and thrives on disturbed land, wastelands and roadsides. Just don’t go picking any from busy roads, due to the air pollution. So clearly, as it’s so prolific and hardy, then perhaps it has an important purpose to fulfill.

Physical Healing Properties of Mugwort

Crushed Mugwort leaves applied to the skin relieves burning, itching and pain and, with continued application, can help get rid of warts.

Mugwort is a topical anesthetic with antifungal and antibacterial properties.

Kills intestinal worms and parasites

According to lore, chewing fresh mugwort leaves will help relieve tiredness / fatigue and clear the mind.

It is also used to help regulate the menstrual cycle and ease painful menstruation and the onset of menopause.

Mugwort has been used for centuries for disorders and epilepsy, as it has mild sedative and antispasmodic properties.

” Please note, that some claim that due to its effects on the menstrual cycle, it is NOT recommended for women during pregancy, as it can induce labor.”

Metaphysical Properties of Mugwort

Perhaps the most interesting property of Mugwort is its affect on the dreaming mind. Dreaming can become a lot more psychedelic if Mugwort is taken shortly before bed.  Were you to do a quick Google search on this unique herb, you’d likely come across various interesting stories, related to bizarre dreaming experiences that people report after having consumed Mugwort.

Mugwort protects travellers of both the physical and metaphysical worlds, and so she hugs our road ways, watching out for us.  In these times of rushing around and living totally in the physical experience, Human Kind has never needed the gifts of Mugwort more. We need her gifts of Dreaming to bring us into the Spirit Realm and teach us to live in balance in both the Spirit and the Physical. This is why Mugwort grow so abundantly and is nigh impossible to kill. She will not rest until her mission is complete.

Mugwort is a potent third eye stimulator and cleanser, this is the reason it helps induce such wonderful and vivid dreams.

It is said to enhance whatever level of dreaming one is developed in. For example, if one can not remember ones dreams, Mugwort will enhance and help the individual to develop this. If one is at the next level of dreaming, cognitive dreaming: (being aware one is dreaming and being able to “manipulate” the dream at will) Mugwort will enhance this.

No matter what level one is dreaming Mugwort will help you to develop your abilities. But beware, for until you become proficient your dreams may, at first, be difficult to deal with. Don’t be discouraged; practice makes perfect. Keeping a journal would be advantageous.

Used for smudging and incense in the same manner as the other Artemisia and Salvias. Burn near your bed before sleep for protection and dream enhancement. A good herb for clearing negativity from the home.

I must agree with all the above claims and statements, I have personally experienced incredibly detailed and intense dreams after ingesting the tea, and not one of the dreams has been unpleasant.

How to Harvest and use Mugwort

Finding Mugwort is incredibly easy, and identifying it is not a difficult task either. It’s rather distinctive, and once you’ve identified it once, you’ll remember it forever.

A few distinguishing features about it:

  • It grows anywhere from 30cm all the way up to 1.5m so it’s pretty tall and sticks out over most others around.
  • It has distinct leaves, on the underside it has a white almost hairy looking colour
  • The stem is usually a red/purple colour
  • It has a very spicy almost cannabis like smell to it when you crush the leaves.

The best time to harvest is just before it flowers, in the UK it’s around the middle of august.

As always, please harvest responsibly, as other animals and people rely on these gifts too, so when you harvest them, make sure to only take the top third of the plant, and not to decimate one area, try to take samples from different plants in different places, this ensures the plants get a chance to recover and spread their seed.

If you do have any trouble finding it in your area, get in touch with me and i’ll do my best to help you find it. I will be adding it to the store shortly.

The best way to dry and use the mugwort is to tie string around small bundles of plants, and hang them somewhere dry and preferably dark for a couple of weeks. then crush it into jars or bags.

My favourite and likely the best way to consume mugwort is to make a tea or tisane, put it in a regular tea strainer for about 5-10 minutes and drink up, with a splash of honey of course.

 

Hopefully you may find this useful, and give it a go yourself, I guarantee your dreams will be far wilder and highly psychedelic if you do.

Peace Out!

Let’s Get Metaphysical – Peridot – The Birthstone of August

Welcome back fellow metaphysical maniacs and crystal fanatics! Today we take a look at the alluring green beauty that is Peridot. As august is this stones’ time to shine, I will be talking about the mythical and historical lore of the fabled lemony gem, some of it’s more quirky properties, and how it may be used in meditation, Reiki, Chakra therapy, as well as gemstone jewellery.

Lay your eyes upon a peridot once, and its vibrant lemony-green hue is not easily forgotten. Lighter than the forest green emerald, there is simply no gemstone like it.

The glorious yellow-green Peridot has been under-appreciated for years, overlooked as a lesser crystal, small, easily obtained and relatively inexpensive. Peridot is born through the fire and the flames; one of only two gems (Diamond is the other) not formed in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the humbling and terrifying forces of earthquakes and volcanoes.

Peridot was considered one of the most precious gemstones and is mentioned a few times in the Bible. Along with the Ten Commandments, scholars believe that it was among the 12 stones Moses brought down from Mount Sinai. Cleopatra of Egypt’s green gemstone jewellery may well have been peridot, erroneously identified as emeralds.

 While most Peridots are born of Earth, other crystals have extraterrestrial origins, found in rare pallasite meteorites. Peridot in its basic form, Olivine, has also been found in comet dust.

And there is yet another twist to the intriguing history of peridot that adds a cosmic dimension. In 2003, NASA reported that peridot had been found on Mars making it the only gemstone known to occur on another planet.

Let’s Get Metaphysical – How Can Peridot Improve My Life?

Associated with the sun, Peridot has been prized since the earliest civilizations for its protective powers to drive away the forces of darkness

Peridot promotes responsibility and forgiveness, instilling confidence in one’s own abilities and reestablishing a sense of self-worth. A powerful generator of the frequency of increase, this lovely talisman may be utilized to manifest abundance in all areas of one’s life: wealth, health, happiness and love. It works exceptionally well to heal the heart chakra, so you may want to consider including it in your reiki or meditation practices, to supercharge your crystal healing sessions.

Protip: Place a piece of  peridot, or crystal jewellery on your heart, and leave it there during a meditation session, or even wear peridot as a necklace to receive all the benefits of the stone!

It is a crystal of warmth and well-being, mentally stimulating and physically regenerating. It carries the gift of inner radiance, sharpening the mind and opening it to new levels of awareness and growth, helping one to recognize and realize one’s destiny and spiritual purpose.

Its Raining Diamonds 1 - Masonry No Sidebar

It’s Raining Diamonds. Diamond “Rain” Falls on Saturn… Free Crystals !

Welcome friends and fanatics to another quick crystal related news article. Recently NASA have discovered something truly remarkable, It literally rains gemstones on saturn (diamonds to be specific) Heaven is longer a place on earth, it’s on saturn. We’re planning a trip up there so we can grab some free crystals and whilst we’re at it, do some meditation and reiki, while the diamonds rain down, can anyone give us a lift there?

New atmospheric data from the Cassini Probe, indicates that carbon is abundant in its crystal form in the atmosphere of Saturn. The scientists say that lightning storms will turn methane into carbon. When the carbon falls it hardens into larger chunks of graphite which eventually becomes diamonds. The findings were uncovered at the meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences in Colorado. Talking at a conference, the American scientists said that these diamond “hail stones” eventually dissolve into a sea of liquid the toasty planet core.

Doctor Kevin Baines, of Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the biggest diamond “hail stones” would be likely to be approximately a centimetre in diameter. “Big enough to put on a ring, although of course they would be uncut,”

Uranus and Neptune have long been thought to harbour free crystals. But Saturn and Jupiter were not thought to have suitable atmospheres.

Baines and Delitsky analysed the latest temperature and pressure predictions for the planets’ interiors, as well as new data on how carbon behaves in different conditions.

 

jupiter saturn 1 - Masonry No Sidebar

“The bottom line is that 1,000 tonnes of diamonds a year are being created on Saturn. People ask me – how can you really tell? Because there’s no way you can go and observe it. It all boils down to the chemistry. And we think we’re pretty certain,” added Dr. Baines.

Let’s get Metaphysical! – Diamond – What are the metaphysical properties of diamond?

A legend claims the God of Mines called his courtiers to bring together all the world’s known gems: Rubies, Sapphires, Emeralds, etc. etc., and he found them to be of all tints and colors and varying hardnesses. He took one of each and crushed them; he compounded them together, and declared, “Let this be something that will combine the beauty of all.” He spoke, and lo, the Diamond was born…pure as a dewdrop and invincible in hardness. Yet when its ray is resolved in the spectrum, it displays all the colors of the gems from which it was made. 

A symbol of purity, the Diamond’s pure white light helps to bring our lives into a cohesive whole.  It brings love and clarity into partnerships, bonding relationships.  Diamond is a sign of commitment and fidelity, and instills trust to relationships and situations.

Though it is a gem of winter, the color of ice, Diamond is a crystal of Light; its high frequency energy is dispersed into flashing prisms of brilliant “fire” that typifies the sun. It is a spiritual stone, a symbol of perfection and illumination, activating the Crown and Etheric Chakras. It enhances inner vision and stimulates creativity, imagination, and ingenuity, opening the mind to the “new” and “possible.” Placed on the Third Eye, a Diamond encourages psychic development, and is a valuable tool for remote viewing, telepathic communication and clairvoyance. 

So, If you can get your hands on some diamonds, clearly (pun intended) they will be able to supercharge your meditations, reiki practice and crystal healing sessions.

 

Hopefully someday soon, we will be able to visit, and get our hands on some of these free crystals.

For now however, you can get your hands on some equally beautiful crystals and gemstones in our shop!

Copper Jewelry – The 21st Century Wonder Material | Crystalife |

I’m in love with copper, although not technically a gemstone, it still has great healing properties. The following metaphysical article will hopefully share some details about why I love this incredible metal so much, how it’s essential to our modern lives and how it can help you heal mind, body and soul, by wearing copper jewelry, or utilizing it during mediation and reiki practices.

Shiny, reddish copper was the first metal ever manipulated and worn by humans in copper jewelry for healing, and it remains an important metal in industry today.

Copper has various properties which make it nearly indispensable to modern civilizations. It is an essential nutrient to all plants and animals.

Without copper, our modern lifestyles wouldn’t exist, it’s a vital component of everything electronic, which we so depend on each day to survive

Physical and Mental Healing Properties

Copper is used in the treatment of wounds and skin diseases, as well as internal diseases, anemia, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and heart disease. It can also help improve the circulation of blood, increasing energy and detoxifying the body.

It is used to bring along energies for all types of healing, including the treatment of arthritis, pain relief of broken bones, as well as sexual instability and low energy. Copper jewelry has been found to relieve joint stiffness and arthritis by opening the flow of blocked energy.

Spiritual + Metaphysical Properties: 

According to myths, it is a conductor of the spiritualist’s belief system and is able to conduct spiritual energy back and forth between individuals, crystals, auras, the mind and the spirit world.

It is also believed that copper jewelry has the power to amplify thoughts when sending and receiving psychic communications.

Copper has the ability to ground and transfer a wide array of vibrational frequencies and supports healing by keeping the pathways for healing open. It’s a great choice to use during Reiki Sessions

Copper improves the powers of communication, and it helps with channeling, cleansing the chakras, purifying and increasing self-esteem and freeing the wearer of mental burdens.

 

How to Heal: Wearing copper jewelry eases joint stiffness and arthritis by opening the flow of blocked energy, supporting the body’s natural healing process.

Infusing it into surfaces has been proven to help decrease infections in hospitals. It can also be infused in a variety of elements. Many also carry the stone with them.

How to find FREE Crystals, Gemstones and Minerals

Hi there, fellow Crystaliens, I hope you’re faring well. I assume you’re here for the free crystals?

Today i’m gonna explain to you a few methods of finding crystals , gemstones and minerals to start or expand your Crystal Collection!

Whether you’re just starting out, or you already have a formidable bunch of crystal allies in your arsenal, this information will surely help get your started on your journey, and strengthen your connection to the mineral kingdom. This guide is to show that even if you don’t have any human money credit token things, you can still build an impressive healing gemstone collection.

If you’re a lucky son of a gun and happen to live near a beach, congrats! Or, even when you go on holiday, I strongly urge you to have a little treasure hunt along the coast, it doesn’t matter if it’s a sandy beach or a pebble one, there’s hidden treasure everywhere. Countless times i’ve walked along the beach only to stumble upon a surprise gem. Did I mention free crystals?

It doesn’t really matter if you don’t know what you’ve found, what matters is how it feels to you, if it makes you feel good, or you’re drawn to it, TAKE IT! You’ll get the same if not more benefit from a funky looking stone you found, as you will from a new age shop. There’s a couple of pretty good books though to help:

So many stones and pebbles on the beach are Quartz, Jasper, Haematite and most people just walk idly by without taking any notice. If you’re really lucky you’ll find some Amber, I once found a piece of Jet, which is easily distinguished because of it’s lightness. Both Amber and Jet float on water so they regularly end up on beaches. FREE CRYSTALS !

Walking barefoot in the sand is immensely beneficial and healing because the sand itself is made up of microscopic crystals, coupled with the salt water you’ve got some good vibes right there.

Anything you find on the beach is sure to supercharge your reiki and meditation sessions. Heck, why not turn them into crystal jewellery and wear them to yoga? Crystals and minerals pack a serious punch when you’re doing chakra healing or working with energy of any kind. Some perhaps too much…

BUT WAIT! I DON’T LIVE NEAR A BEACH!

Do not despair, there is a simple solution to your problem.

Like many people, you most likely have a driveway, or know of a building or neighbor nearby that has a gravel/ stone driveway or path.

I have good news.

These stones weren’t originally here, they were imported from somewhere else that was full of stones and pebbles.

Can you think of anywhere that might fit that description?

The majority of pebble driveways are stones that have been moved from BEACHES

Trust me, pick a few stones up when they’re wet and give them a sniff. You will smell the sea.

I hope this has inspired you to go out on a treasure hunt, I hope you have deep pockets or a wheelbarrow, because once you start, you won’t want to stop.

Peace out.
