Pāli Word a Day for March 25, 2020 — kasī — ploughing, cultivation of the soil

Attā hi attano nātho;
ko hi nātho paro siyā?
Attanā hi sudantena,

who else could the protector be?
With oneself fully controlled,
one gains a mastery that is hard to gain.

In this article, we take a look at the uses and suggested health benefits of clary sage oil. We will also look at whether there is any scientific evidence to back these claims up. We also examine how the oil is used, and what side effects could occur.

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Beyond Candy Canes: 21 Uses for Peppermint Oil

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

If you have had the fortune to smell the aroma of peppermint after it has been distilled fresh from the farm, or I should say after the distillation process which takes quite a bit of time. The surrounding area just permeates peppermint for weeks, and the aroma is nothing like the aroma that comes from the essential oil bottles you buy from manufacturers. Trust me, the aroma is quite unique and very strong.

Soothing, cool, and refreshing, peppermint oil smells great and offers many health benefits. Peppermint can ease congestion, support oral health, repel pests, soothe headaches, and even relieve stress. Peppermint oil is a must in your essential oil collection — especially if you like to create chemical-free, do-it-yourself home and healthcare products.

Benefits and Use of Peppermint Oil

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

The next few posts will be about an herb we grow commercially on our farm in Oregon. I can not bestow enough accolades for the use of peppermint whether it be the plant or the essential oil. We have grown peppermint for over 30 years on 2400 acres, grown commercially and shipped worldwide, it has to be one of the most commonly used oils in the world, but few really know the virtues of peppermint.

I and my daughter are constantly creating uses for this oil, from salves {we created a muscle salve for Hubbie after his farming accident when a water line {wheel} came down on top of him and crushed his spine.

Lāʻau Lāpaʻau | Peppermint Oil: Four Surprising Utilities

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Far, far more than these four, the utilities are endless.

For several centuries, the oil obtained from the peppermint plant has been a vital element of several medications and there are sufficient reasons for this too. Peppermint oil is not only intense but also highly aromatic. In addition to being an established analgesic, carminative, and expectorant, peppermint oil possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties and, it is widely used to treat gastrointestinal (GI) problems like indigestion as well as stomach spasms. However, this oil is used in mild doses for these purposes. There is evidence indicating that peppermint oil can also be used for treating irritable bowel syndrome {IBS}.

Generally, peppermint oil has been extensively used in the form of internal medication. However, it also offers a number of cosmetic benefits; for instance, it is especially effective in augmenting the health of our mouth, skin, hair, and nails.

Foodstyles | Strawberry Lemon Shortcake Poke Cake and the Supermarket Ponzi Scheme

When life hand you lemons you make lemon curd.  With that lemon curd you make this cake!

$40s in boxed ingredients later and suddenly the kitchen looks like we’re prepping for end times with cake mixes, pudding and Jell-O.  Actually, I think the Author, Jamie Sherman, may just own a ton of stock in Jell-O.  She’s a crazy mad poke cake GENIUS.  Once you start baking these delicious cakes, you can’t stop.  Here is one of the favorites so far.

Energy Update | March 23, 2020, with Matt Kahn

by Matt Kahn

During this time of collective uncertainty, it is helpful to validate your experience to alleviate any form of alienation due to the differing experiences and viewpoints had by so many at this time. For the past month (and even prior) leading up to the COVID-19 announcement, many light workers, empaths, and energetically-sensitive souls had been receiving a deep inner calling to withdraw and go inward. Like an energetic form of cocooning, many of us were being energetically prepared for the light we would be shining and anchoring as coronavirus and economic pressures became known. During this time, you might have felt as if you were more drawn to be in your own space and spend much time alone, and/or in nature, than to be around those who still identified with the densities readying to be healed. For many, this might have brought up feelings of insecurity and inferiority– or feelings viewed as arrogant, judgmental and self righteous by those having different experiences– along with opportunities to face patterns of enmeshment and co-dependency head on.

No matter how ill-equipped you feel in explaining yourself to those who are having very different experiences than you, it is essential to follow the directives of your inner guidance no matter how socially unacceptable, or even offensive, it seems to others around you.

For the past month, light workers have been challenged with being more mindful with their time, often not drawn to spend time or resonate with those who trigger exhaustion versus excitement. Such guidance has been helping many be more decisive and courageous in both their decision-making, boundaries, and communication of needs. More specifically, many people are unhooking from patterns of codependency by separating the difference between choice and judgment. Perhaps you are one of many who were conditioned to cater to other people’s experiences in the absence of serving your needs. As empaths, we are so tentative about triggering disapproval in others due to our uncanny ability to feel someone else’s experience within our bodies. Due to this intuitive gift, we often made choices to keep other people’s egos at bay, while resenting others for the little they gave in comparison to the ‘too much’ or ‘overcompensation’ codependent empaths tend to offer.

As a way of patching up the energy leaks in your field and cutting chords to the unconscious patterning in relationships, you have received many intuitions where you may have found yourself not resonating with the characters who drain you. As a way of seeing this as intuition versus judgment, it doesn’t mean any character is bad or ‘less than’. It is simply the case for those who have not become consciously aware of the infinite flowing life force energy of Source within themselves that such characters tend to balance themselves by ‘plugging into’ and draining your light versus turning inward and connecting within. While others may not appreciate less time around someone they may not realize they are energetically feeding off of, it has been and will continue to be essential for each of us to be true to the guidance of our feelings and mindful of where we spend our time. The more often we allow ourselves to be drained, the easier it is to be sucked into the fear of the collective as coronavirus has manifested to give humanity ample time and space to connect within– so to create a new reality where we connect in our wholeness without draining, or feeling drained by, others.

As a moment of relief for most light workers, through the suggestion of a personal quarantine to slow the spread of coronavirus, we now have the perfect invitation to continue rebuilding our life force energy for the light we are called to anchor in honor of our awakening humanity. I assure you humanity is steeped in a collective awakening, where the opportunity to transcend fear first comes from becoming more aware of it, which this current news headline era of reality has perfectly ushered in. While it is helpful to remind people to not drain their immune system by being steeped in fear, the most compelling way to convey such wisdom is through demonstration. As each of us rebuilds the reservoirs of energy throughout our field, much like the regular charging of a cell phone, we are able to withstand the gravity of other people’s fears without being swept away by patterns of scarcity and survival mode.

This brings up the current predicament most light workers are facing, which can be divided into two distinct categories. You may experience one or the other, or both. There are some empaths, who without time spent recharging their energy field through rest, time in nature, meditation, yoga, reading, deepening their self-love practice, or even creative expression, are lost in the densities of the collective. Instead of having to clear your field several times per day, always know it is your ability to recharge through greater moments of restful rejuvenation that allows your Angels the time and space to clear your energy field for you.

If wanting more tangible support in this area, simply declare out loud:

“Thank you beloved Angels for clearing my energy field and upgrading my reality while I take the time to rest and recharge. Thank you beloved Angels. Thank you.”

The other experience light workers are having involves a leap into greater faith while cultivating the courage to stand for their truth, even when it differs from the experiences of others. As a brilliant cosmic set-up for healing the throat, heart and solar plexus chakras of those in the first wave of ascension, it is purposeful to have characters in your life hypnotized by headlines and lost in the fear, panic, anxiety, and uncertainty of our rapidly changing reality. You are healing your throat chakra by having the right to express your viewpoint without needing to make others wrong in order for you to share what feels right to you. Your heart chakra opens and purges outdated densities while allowing other people’s viewpoints to be equally as valid as yours, even if their experience grossly differs from yours. Lastly, your solar plexus chakra receives healing and is upgraded as you sense exhaustion in the moment any interaction has reached its point of completion. Again, others don’t have to agree with your decisions when what matters is simply the guidance of what is best for the unique evolution ofyou.

This can be helpful guidance and support when so many aligned heart-centered beings are not steeped in chaos or worry. In fact, for many there is an inexplicable relief or excitement as we are finally experiencing the very Ascension that we have spent lifetimes preparing to explore. Many have felt alienated whenever sharing their experiences with those having a much more tumultuous time with the disruption of life’s rhythm of conditioning. Again, it is not your job to convince other people of anything, but is always essential to represent your viewpoint as equal to the opinions others may share. Even if others don’t agree or validate the credibility of your perception, it’s always a moment of profound growth when such transformation comes through the openness of your sharing, regardless of the response from others — even if their response is no response at all.

Together as One, united by our frequencies of light as the First Wave of Ascension, we break codependent patterns by returning to the truth of our experience, doing everything that is needed for our return to wholeness, while others learn how to rely on the light within themselves, now that we are no longer a space for others to drain. In the coming weeks, I will be providing additional resources and ‘repeat-after-me’ statements to assist the first wave in making these crucial shifts, so not to rely on humanity shifting before setting ourselves free.

Whether you are unsure if its okay to not be worried about coronavirus, despite the epidemic of concern consuming so many people, or find yourself too exhausted to transmute the energies many are purging, our focus remains solely focused on what each of us needs in order to get through the day and continue rebuilding our life force energy, allowing these huge evolutionary waves to carry us from one shore to the next, rather than topple us at every turn.

In service to your evolutionary needs, I will be posting Energy Updates more frequently, so you can focus on the highest spiritual priorities at hand while caring for yourself, your families and watching how this unprecedented event shakes out on so many levels. Please do whatever you can to not look too far ahead. All the options you need in order to awaken to full capacity are always found by answering the question:

What do I need right now?

While the answer may change from one moment to the next, this remains your best line of response to the fear-based patterning that our light is dissolving in all.

As always, on behalf of the Universe, I am with you every step of the way.

Victory of the light I AM now.

Day 9 – Locking it Down with CPM

Cook Plant Meditate

Do you know people who are sick? We do. An older family friend is ill. A relative in their 20’s. Neither of them knows what kind of illness they have. They just know to self-isolate and “come back in two weeks if you have the same symptoms”.

Are you following instructions, or being a Coviditot?

Covidiot: A person who ignores the warnings regarding public health or safety. Or, a person who hoards goods, denying them from neighbors. (Thanks for this gem, Urban Dictionary)

We’d like to implore everyone to do the right thing. If you’re not an essential worker or going out for essential needs… stay home. Stop hoarding. Order take out. Please encourage others to do the same. The longer we refuse to follow instructions, the longer we do this for. The longer we’re out of masks for nurses. The longer the kids are out of school.

Astrology | Saturn in Aquarius

Saturn is the planet of tradition, success, manifestation and goals. It is an earth sign that rules the 10th house of career and long-term success. Saturn is a planet that in mythology connected to Greek Cronus, the Father of time. Saturn is a realistic planet, that gives us time and structure and very important lessons. Therefore, its energy can sometimes feel heavy and disciplined.

Aquarius rules the 11th house which is all about groups, organisations, friends and the collective. It is future thinking, ground breaking and kinda unique. It is all about being that unique spark and through this creating a new world. It is utopian and also very humanitarian. It wants to have freedom to seek and enter new grounds and does not see life only from the perspective of the individual, but also from the perspective of all of mankind. It does not like traditions nor restrictions at this time and is willing to update and refresh old beliefs.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus which is in Taurus since almost two years back. So we see the interaction between earth and air now as these major planets are in planets that they are normally not comfortable in. Uranus is disruption and innovation and breakthroughs, and this is going on as the

Saturn in Aquarius will limit us as a collective when it comes to how we gather, meet and organize ourselves. It restricts, but also helps make our innovations more grounded, earthed and manifested in the physical. We have the opportunity to focus and have patience in the New Age that we are in and as we are creating change we need to have patience and structure to create long-lasting change. When the bigger planets make a shift, a transit, it is more felt on a world level and in our lives as a collective, so we will sense and experience a lot of shifts. Since Aquarius is the future and higher technologies, there will be more focus and physical creation there.

La’au Lapa’au | Sweet Basil Essential Oil

Crooked Bear Creek Organic Herbs

Basil Essential Oil is derived from the leaves of the Ocimum basilicum botanical, better known as the Basil herb. This plant receives its name from the Latin word basilius as well as the Greek word basilikón phutón, which means “royal plant,” hence Basil is also known as the Queen of Herbs or l’herbe royale, meaning “royal herb” in French. It may also be referred to as Saint Joseph’s Wort, Great Basil, European Basil, French Basil, Common Basil, or Sweet Basil.

Several religions and spiritual beliefs practice rituals that emphasize the significance of the use of Basil. In Judaism, traditional stories advocate the use of Basil for increased strength during times of fasting. In various Orthodox churches, Basil is often used to either sprinkle or prepare holy water. As well, pots of the herb are often positioned below church altars to pay reverence to the belief that it was…

Saturn Enters Aquarius 1 (2020-03-21)

We are being given a taste of a major transition that will greet us more fully later this year.  Pieces of it have been unfolding for at least the past twenty years, arguably more than the past two centuries.  As Saturn enters Aquarius, almost silently, we face the Coronavirus Pandemic (Covid19) and the likely repercussions.  Internet businesses have the potential to flourish.  Some brick and mortar businesses are floundering.  Some services (healthcare, police, delivery drivers) are overwhelmed.  Other services (dine-in restaurants) are in peril.

“Things” will never be quite the same.  As Seals and Crofts sang in the early 1970’s, “We May Never Pass This Way Again.”

We present, here, basics regarding “Saturn Enters Aquarius 1” along with a glimpse of “Saturn Enters Aquarius 2.”  After “Saturn Enters Aquarius 2,” Saturn stays in Aquarius until 2023.
