Lavender and Spiritual Integration

Lavender is a wonderfully scented nervine that supports our nervous system. The healing powers are especially designed to have a positive effect on our head. Drinking teas and accessing the aromatherapy properties of lavender opens the crown chakra and enhances meditation. The closed lavender bud even resembles the pinecone like image of the pineal gland.

My Lavender is loving grown organically in North Idaho where the ratio of sun and rain and soil is perfect for producing premium quality blossoms. Harvested by hand in mid-July just before the buds burst open for the bees. Its actually the bees that keep me in tune with the perfect time to harvest. When they start buzzing amongst the lavender bushes, I know harvest day is near. I wait and watch for the Lavender to let me know. When I hear their call, I begin the process of gathering a handful at a time. I tie some in bundles on the spot.

Hanging the bundles upside down to dry allows the volatile oils to condense in the tips of the buds for optimal potency. While I leave some of the bundles ties for decoration, I prepare the rest for my herbal offerings of flower teas and tinctures.

Herbal Teas containing Lavender include Lavender Serenity, Ascension Flower Tea, Meditation chakra #7, and Moscow Mint.

Blessing Herbs

Linda offering plumeria flowers to the ocean in Maui prior to her morning swim.

Many earth-centered cultures around the world offer flowers as gratitude to the Ancestors, Plant Spirits, and the Divine. My grandmothers taught me to love being outside amongst the plants. They both had lovely flower gardens. I also learned to admire the sunrise and sunsets, the oceans, the birds, all of life. My Nez Perce friend Sharon taught me to make a tobacco offering when we saw a hawk or other delight. It was a way to honor Great Spirit for the simple things in life.

Those experiences inspired me to package some of the the organic and wild plants that I gather for your Blessing Herbs to be able to make simple offerings any time. All the blessings add up and the Mother Earth is pleased.

Organic and wild herbs gathered with prayerful respect for all creation. When you feel grateful for an experience or when gathering food and herbs, you can give thanks by sprinkling some blessing herbs on the earth. It is a way of feeding her Spirit. Available in a convenient muslin bag or reusable tin. $11

Ascension Symptoms Support

Ascension Symptoms and What is Going On

When I say ascension, I am talking about living in an open hearted way with yourself and others as we circle around the sun. It is not about leaving the physical body and being spaced out.  It is about aligning with the magic and mystery of having a human incarnation now and being stable enough to being forward your unique contribution at this time. It is about being humble enough to learn and grow with other humans along the way. It is about seeing the highest good in all. It is about being disciplined enough to stay present as we expand. It is about aligning with what is working well and finding daily joy.

Are you having unexplained health issues? Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, migraines, lyme disease symptoms and some digestive issues can be your physiology naturally adjusting to the incoming vibrations of expansion. Especially if you are a highly sensitive person, you’ll need to be allowing more time for rest and processing. This is the journey of a healer and lightworker to know how to process emotions both your own and those you are picking up from other people. The magic is to feel compassion and the pleasure of relief to for your journey and this magnificent life you’ve been given.

Your physical body is adjusting to the high vibes of spiritual enlightenment, living from compassion in the present moment, and consciousness expansion. As our own personal electromagnetic magnetic body responds to the shifts of the sun, earth’s environmental changes, solar system, and multiverse. Our physical organs, muscles, joints are shifting to compensate for the higher vibratory rates inside your skin.

Employing compassion as your friend shifts from the old ways to the new ways that support your whole self. As you Wake Up, there are new lifestyle upgrades required where you pay more attention to your vibrational field. Allow your heart chakra to expand so all of your subtle energy center chakras can open and flow between earth and heaven. Be the vessel for embodied ascension.

What you resist persists. part of the journey is allowing yourself to feel your emotions deeply and process them, but not to get stuck there. Allow yourself a cycle of completion with your past so your awareness can move on to more openness, more joy, more aliveness. Make space for your dreams and visions to become reality.

Allow emotional wounds to heal

Of course it is important to pay attention to the signals that your emotions are giving you. Your emotions are simply information.

Move along the process of 1. Awareness of feelings, 2. Processing emotions, to 3. Solutions to 4. Resolution rather than getting stuck in a lifetime of simple awareness or processing. We are here to enjoy life. Sometimes intense clearing has to happen but there comes a day when it is time to move forward rather than jumping back into the pit. The length of this is different for everyone. Follow your own timing but keep open to future resolution in your own Spirit so you can create beauty, peace, and joy everyday.

Especially if you were bullied as a child, it seems natural to get into a pattern of subconsciously bullying ourselves by not completing the cycle of healing around an emotion wound. Get support in reclaiming your power and choosing to turn victim consciousness into creating the life of your dreams. When we bring compassion from our heart to all our emotions, we allow fear, doubt, and worry to integrate. We share our ascended heart energies with ourselves to shift loneliness, shame, judgement, and a sense of separation. We befriend the emotional part of our lives in balance with the physical, mental, and spiritual layers.

The main thing with e-motions is that the energy wants to move. Otherwise it stagnates, persists, and can condense into disease. What we resist persists. As time goes on you cannot hide from your secrets.

  • Love yourself enough to process what needs to be let go of so you can be in the new now.
  • Keep your energy moving with meditations, movement, conscious connection.
  • Create Affirmations and allow yourself to Vision what supports your desired state of being.
  • Listen to music and engage in activities that bring your joy.
  • Give space. Allow time for deep rest, integration, and assimilation. There is no rush.
  • The bottom line is to bring more body awareness. Tune into your sensations and how you are feeling with all that you encounter and do. Your emotions are connected to your Soul speaking to you.
  • Listen to your body and follow through with the necessary adjustments. Be humble enough to do the layers of work as they unfold. The often deeply painful processing gives rise to freedom.  Allow the stuck patterns in your DNA and lineage to heal and upgrade for all concerned. Here are some good journaling questions.
  • Ask When I do this how do I feel?
  • Am I covering feelings up to numb or feel better as a quick fix?
  • Am I really feeling nourished, free, alive, awake?
  • If all my needs were met, what would I do?
  • Ask What am uniquely here to do?
  • Who and what am I devoted to?

Meditation and Moving Energy

Here are several types of meditations that can be beneficial for your progress.

  • Passive – Relax and rest on the BEMER mat. This opens your awareness to electromagnetic energy flows in your body. Call to set up a session locally.
  • Gong Bath – vibrational and sound bath to keep chakra energy centers clear and flowing to optimize your use of the natural healing forces within and around you.
  • Visual Meditation – Running your energy to release blocks restores flow in your electro magnetic energy body. Strengthen your commitment to your spiritual self.
  • Mahamudra Movement Meditation to remove blocks, enhances listening within and to the Universe. (Shake 15 minutes-Dance 15 -Sit/Bow 15 -Rest 15)
  • Any dancing releases tension and open life force energy to your whole self
  • Walking outside. Allow all your 5 senses and metaphysical senses to open to the cycles, magic and mystery of all creation. Fresh air is important.
  • Being in natural sunlight predawn and at sunset for spectral healing.
  • Seasalt, baking soda, and epsom salts bath combinations soothe tired muscles and accept salty emotional processing tears.

Align with a High Vibe Tribe

  • Meet with like minded people where you are appreciated just as you are now.
  • Attend yoga, dance, or chi gong classes that increase mind-body awareness.
  • Learn to process your emotions through journaling, improving verbal communication and listening skills with the people in your life, receiving support from a mental health counselor when needed.
  • Acknowledge any numbing behaviors and opening up to heal them. This releases blockages and restore flow thus enhancing your own life force energy. Remember that guilt can be more toxic than any substance. Patience and compassion rule from an ascended consciousness.
  • Heal the addiction of co-dependency. Learn to set healthy boundaries.
  • Be with people who respect where you are and allow your process while maintaining their own sense of self. Share compassion by giving each other space and patience.

Juice Cleanse Companion Teas

Juice cleansing is a great way to reset your body for the new year. Giving your body a break from your normal food plan for a few days optimizes digestion, increases absorption of vital nutrients in a form that is easy to digest, and improves mental clarity. You may even experience a boost of energy and a lightness of being since your body can use its resources to for other metabolic functions rather than digesting foods.

If you are focusing on a liquid cleanse for 3-5 days especially in the winter, it is good to supplement your plan with warm medicinal flower infusions. I’ve assembled three of my most popular blends into a convenient package as a companion to your juice cleanse experience. Here is more information for you about the herbal blends and how they can benefit you on your journey of optimal health.

Miracle Radiant Tree

What a surprise to return after a vacation to visit my family in New England to find my Christmas Tree sprouting!!

I entered the dark living room and gasped in amazement when I could see the tips of the branches glowing in radiance. I walked across the room to switch the ceiling light on so I could see more clearly. When I turned around to see the light green new growth of the graceful boughs, my hand automatically went to my heart. How is this possible? I have never seen anything else like this in my 60 years this time on earth. This tree cut more than a month ago was sprouting like it was spring.

This fir tree was transplanted about 10 years ago from my front yard to the back. At the time it was planted, I did not consider the rate of growth. Over the years it grew to about 30 feet tall and was reaching over into the neighbors yard. The tree was calling my attention to itself this summer as I was teaching classes in the back yard. Though my property is surrounded by tall trees, this one was the tallest tree actually growing in my yard. It lived outside my bedroom window and I often gazed at the full moon through its encroaching branches.

It was harvested at dusk one night just before the first winter storm in Moscow. Adorned with gold and white lights the first night before gathering what few Christmas ornaments I could easily find. Crystals, bracelets, necklaces, and crystal were later added. My Gingerbread doll and holiday cards filled out the celebration of this tree. This miracle tree is still up and will remain so for a bit longer as a companion to my morning yoga and evening teatime.

I know that I can relax and settle into my joy and expanded heart connection with the pure energy beyond the physical experience of the tree. Its allowing the oneness with my souls experience of connection and the easy smile it brings to my face that matters. Though I sense and see the energy within and around the tree as a light-filled Being, made more apparent by the form of the tree, I can be present with it fully experiencing it without the limits of naming it.

May you be filled with delightful curiosity

about the magic and miracles of new growth in your life this year.

Herbal Teas for Fasting

During the heat of summer is a perfect time to eat light and try fasting from the way you may eat in the winter. Most indigenous cultures incorporate seasonal fasting into their lives for physical health, emotional purification, mental strength, and spiritual evolution. Specific medicinal herbs promote your body’s natural cleansing abilities through supporting detoxification of the liver, kidneys, lungs, and large intestines. These herbs can be a supportive addition to your fast. Depending upon what your pre-fasting diet, exposure to environmental toxins, stress, and out put of physical activity are, you will want to select the type of fast and length of time for optimal success.

The first time you choose to do a liquid fast with juices, herbal teas, broths, or water it is important to begin at a time when you have days to devote to rest, relaxation, devotional reading, yoga, journaling, and play. This helps you pay attention to the mind-body connection, reduces food cravings due to caloric needs, and keeps you close to the restroom if your body decides to do a more intense elimination.

Here are 3 successful ways to incorporate herbal teas into your Fasting Regime

1. Add in 1 cup of medicinal quality herbal tea 3x a day to a lighter diet than you usually eat for a week prior to your liquid fast.

2. During the liquid fast include 1 cup of herbal tea for digestion regulation in the morning, a cup of herbal tea for full body detox during the midday, and a cup of herbal tea to nourish the nervous system in the evening to help you rest.

3. Be kind to yourself after the fasting time, by easing back into solid foods. Once your liquid fast is over, you will want to have a a diet primarily of vegetables, fruits, smoothies, and soaked nuts for a few days. Continuing with medicinal herbal teas during this time can continue to support your body’s natural cleansing process.

Our chakras act as energetic portals between our physical body and the Universe. When they are in a healthy state, we feel in sycronistic alignment with our Soul purpose. We are able to give and receive our love with the community. We feel grounded and a sense of deep connection to the natural world. We are able to take action on health enhancing practices, and feel like we live regularly with a clear mind, calm body, and open heart. A cool thing is that science now shows that our physical body actually has nerve bundles along our spine that relate to the chakras that yogis have experienced since the beginning of time.

I first began working with the connection between herbs and the chakras when I was in psychic school in Portland in the late 1980’s. I was a Herbalist first, then when I was doing psychic readings, herbs would come forward for me to share with clients to keep their chakras moving so they could benefit from Universal life force energy. This led to the creation of Spirit Herbs Chakra Elixirs to fill the need.

Now skip ahead, with 30 more years of working with subtle energies, and my desire to share the beautiful flowers that I grow organically and gather wild for you in these lovely teas. Here’s more about the intent and spiritual properties of the herbs behind each tea. We’ll start with the root Chakra for grounding since our earth journey is about learning how to anchor our spiritual energy in our physical body.

To make a perfect cup of Spirit Herbs Flower tea:

To make a beverage style tea, steep the herbs for 3-5 minutes in a glass container of hot water where they can float around. This allows the most interface and absorption between the plant material and the hot water. For a medicinal quality tea, I recommend steeping the herbs for about 20 minutes. After the steeping time, strain off the herbs and compost them or dry them for future blessing herbs. Enjoy Spirit Herbs Chakra Flower Teas hot or cold. It’s fun to make sun teas when the weather is warm by placing 1 teaspoon dried herbs per cup of water in a glass jar and let it absorb spectral healing rays of the sun for a few hours.
