La’au Lapa’au | Wild Lettuce, Spontaneous Generation in the Garden of Diversity – Richo’s Blog

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

How does one identify volunteers in the field?  Well, the volunteers will appear in the area under and around the mother plant, or in the case of short-lived plants like Wild Lettuce, in the area where the mother plant once prospered but is now gone.  Every seedling has its individual characteristics.  Some will carry the seed coat up above the soil level and may be identified that way.  Others will demonstrate peculiar size, color or smell that help you know exactly what they are.  Practiced gardeners will identify the seedlings because they recognize the plant.  Wild lettuce seedlings have leaves that look like lettuce and are taprooted.  When the taproot is broken, they exude the bitter white latex known as lactucarium, so if the root bleeds white milk, you know you’re on the right track.

We like to leave our best plants to produce seeds, seeds that may be harvested…

This reiki healing music can be used by most people and practitioners as an aid to improve your reiki healing, and meditation experience. This video uses many frequencies so I can’t list them all here. If you are interested in this information, you can open the audio with a spectrogram. This video uses the following pulse modulation frequencies: 3 Hz and 2 Hz while using 100 Hz as the carrier frequency. This music induces delta brainwaves. Delta waves are the slowest of all and are defined as having a pulse modulation frequency range between 0-4 Hz. We experience these brainwaves naturally when we are in the deepest of sleep or meditative states. These brainwaves send signals throughout the body to stimulate regeneration, and healthy neuro-chemistry and as a result are vital in the maintenance of health and psychological well-being.

Magic | Witchy DIYs: How to Make Florida Water

If you’ve been in the spiritual community for any amount of time, you have most likely heard of Florida Water. But you may be wondering: what is it? What does it do? Where does it come from? No, it’s not water from the tap of a Florida home in the Southern United States!

It’s comical how many people have this as their first thought, and it does make sense. But what’s really the reason for the name? So today, we’ll go through the history and uses of Florida Water, plus an easy recipe.

What is Florida Water? 

Surprisingly, Florida Water started out as a cologne in 1808 by a New York City perfumer named Robert I. Murray. The name comes from the Spanish word for flower: “flor.” It was adapted for America from a popular German perfume that was created in 1709. It was considered a unisex perfume for its sweet floral and citrus notes, yet strong spicy and herbal notes. In those days, cologne was used to freshen everything, not just to wear on your skin. So it has a long history as a perfume, but where exactly do its magickal uses come in?

Popularly used in Hoodoo, Voodoo, and Santeria, one of the theories is that slaves used it in their magickal practice to hide it from their Christian owners. This is the same reason Hoodoo and Voodoo spells often use the Bible today. Slavery was legal so with no freedom in sight, combining African religions with the American religion forced upon them became a small way they could resist oppression and preserve some of their roots. So as the slaves worked, they used Florida Water to secretly infuse magickal cleansing into all their chores.

Florida Water made itself a staple in some Hispanic spiritual practices but the reason for this is also largely unknown. Another theory is that because of the already established magickal uses of the ingredients of Florida Water, it was a convenient way to access their magickal properties since it was something most people had on hand anyway. To this day it is still easy to find, affordable, inconspicuous, and readily available, so even witches in the broom closet can use it to secretly infuse magick into their daily lives.

Ways to Use Florida Water

The first and most obvious way to use Florida Water is for its original purpose, as cologne. You might use it this way in glamour magick, enchanting it to make you appear more attractive to others. As a face wash, it is said to cure blemishes.  Similarly, Florida Water can be used as an ingredient in a love spell for its inclusion of roses.

*It is highly flammable so be sure to keep away from an open flame and do not use on or around candles.

Many people today still swear by Florida Water as a cure-all remedy. It is unknown why and has not been proven, yet it has stood the test of time. Perhaps it was the original claim that Florida Water was from the Fountain of Youth. Or maybe it is simply magic!

There is no harm in trying it as a way to relieve fatigue, nervous tension, headache, and fever.

Anoint your doorways for cleansing and home protection. The front door is considered the “mouth” of the home in Feng Shui, the place where the energy enters. Anointing with Florida Water will purify the energy that enters and prevent harmful energy from infiltrating your home.

Add to kitchen cleaning products, such as creating a floor wash or an oven cleaner with Florida Water. In Feng Shui, the kitchen is the wealth center of your home and keeping it clean, both physically and spiritually, brings good luck!

When a few drops are added to a chalice of water as an offering to your ancestors, Florida Water gives clearer communication so you can ask for guidance.

Wipe down your altar and all the items on it with Florida Water for spiritual cleansing. Use to clean craft tools before a ritual to cleanse old energy they may be holding onto.

Likewise, you can cleanse yourself with Florida Water before a ritual. It makes a great ingredient to add to a ritual bath.

A small amount added to the water will cleanse and protect.

 

Do-It-Yourself Florida Water Recipe

Though Florida Water is easy to find in most places, it is nearly as easy to make yourself if you have the right supplies. Want to try your hand at making it yourself? Here’s an easy recipe!

 

Items You’ll Need:

1 part vodka
1 part rosewater
1 orange peel
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cups fresh herbs of your choice
10 drops each essential oils of bergamot, lavender, lemon, ylang-ylang, jasmine

 

Directions:

There are two different ways you can make this recipe.

The first is to simply add all these ingredients into a large glass container and now you have your own Florida Water!

The second option is if you do not have rosewater or fresh herbs, you can use a few tablespoons of dried roses and dried herbs of your choice and allow to steep in boiled water like an infusion and cover for 20-30 minutes, then add to the vodka mixture in the jar. You can choose from herbs such as basil, hyssop, lemon balm, lemon verbena, lemongrass, peppermint, sage, rosemary, depending on your intentions. This recipe is purposely customizable to fit your own magical preferences!

Allow the ingredients to sit in the vodka mixture for a moon cycle. It is great to make it at a full moon and charge it under the moon after you put the ingredients together, or make it at a new moon and charge it under the full moon halfway through the cycle. When it is finished, you can strain the herbs out or use as is!

Spirituality | The Prophecy of the White Buffalo Calf Woman Materializing

White Buffalo Calf Woman speaks. My sisters unbuckle the humanness that keeps you so strapped in to all the roles that you once played.  All has changed and the cosmic merry-go-round stops in front of your door. You are a conjunction of all of your fears, your dreams, and your desires.  You are conjunction of time and space, heaven and hell.  You are the destiny of this beauteous planet that you stand upon.  You hold the vibratory key that escorts many into a place of safety.  You lift them by praying for them, by holding the warm fire light for them.  You lift them in your song, in your laughter and your invocations.

 

We ask you to embrace all shortcomings that you try so hard to cover and prevent others from seeing.  We ask you to embrace and love all the unwise things you have done and all the imperfections that you wear as scars.  For all creation is beautiful as are you.  The intertwining of the leaves, of the grass, of the wind and you is the most beautiful of all dances.  Your worth is priceless and in that precious vibration you need to embrace all the dreams that still live within your heart.  Do not cut yourself short.  Do not put on the brakes when you yearn so deeply to fulfill desires that are  but a tiny seed of creation waiting to be birthed.

 

The time to address all your fears is now.  The time to move forward wearing a badge of courage is now.  The time to dream big is now.  Do not be afraid of the predictions of the physical world, for the vibratory level that you exist is beyond the reach of what makes others so fearful.  You must believe without a shadow of doubt.  Look at your shadow and embrace every part. Every valley of woe, of death and demise you have walked through, now comes to a point of reflection and in this reflection there will be a collage of healing mirrors.

 

Do not be embarrassed by what has happened to you in the past no matter what form that took.  Every role you have played serves you well now. Every badge of courage, every fear, every shame is wrapped up in a cocoon of holy light.  Honor it and understand it.  The physical body must move forward thru these shifts and fears.  It will scream, it will kick and you will feel like you are dying.  This is all a game to keep you less than.  Walk through the fears, the angers, the disease and the lies, come to a point of complete clarity, within this clarity lives a great power. I am White Buffalo Calf Woman.

The Dog Days of Summer

Do you know that time in late summer, when the air seems heavy and full, and the heat gets hotter, and everything seems to slide from ripe to overripe? It’s that sultry, sticky time sometimes called the Dog Days, after Sirius the Dog Star.

It’s my favorite time of year. Most of the people here in New Orleans think I’m crazy. Maybe I am. Then again, I work in an office which is maintained at such a bone-chilling temperature that some of my co-workers resort to using space heaters in August.
