Invitation Cont

One of the most important things remember and you join or deepen your experience in green MAGICK is to begin the process in a Way that is comfortable for you. You don’t need to get overwhelmed by the long list of eco-friendly advice. Feeling guilt or pressure will not help you develop a healthy relationship with the earth spirits. You must begin, yes, but allow each step toward becoming green ease itself into your lifestyle. Start by talking with your plants, shop at farmers market, plant and herb or veggie garden. Even if it’s just in pots on your balcony. There is no judgment on this path back to trusting and taking care of mother Earth.

By harkening back to the times of our ancestors, we will embrace nature once again and the magick Will return to our lives. No matter how refined more sophisticated we may pretend to be, deep down we miss magick. In magick there is wonder, appreciation and security. Although we may have attempted cake what guess the earth has provided for us and improve upon them, the ferry spirit continues to press its way into our lives, crying out for us to stop fixing what was never broken. And at long last, we begin to take a look at ourselves and the treasures around us. 
The fairies have not forgotten our true nature. As we begin to relate more deeply to the living essence of the earth, we will nurture our own planet back to health  The earth and all that growth on her will respond with vibrant aliveness to our attention, and a meaningful, abundant reciprocal relationship will develop. As you develop your unique relationship with the fairies, you will discover that the magic if you play there and that fairies around you. 

 What is a faerie? You dare ask?  Faeries are the inner nature of the land and a reflection of the inner nature of our souls says Brian Froud author of good faeries bad faeries. 

Faerie energy is the prana of the earth,the life source, the intelligennce, and breath of the plants  It is the essence of the life in nature  Dyrads are found in trees  Naiads are the energy of the rivers and streams  Gnomes live in hills and mountains and under the earth  Sylphs float in the air. Faeries live in plants, herbs and flowers . They all live in another dimension from our material form, although they co exist with humans in the spiritual and emotional and mental planes. 

Faeries are free from dense form, unless they choose to assume a shape , Faeries are a reflection of the natural vessels that contain them and take on the aspects of the plant,wether through the physicality of the plant or herb, the etemology of its name or the healing or magickal properties of the plant  

Formlessness has been an obstacle for the ilunderstanding of faerie energy underlined by the saying SEEING IS BELIEVING In an effort to connect with human friends, faeries will take on an outward appearance that can be best understood andreceived by the human whos attention they are seeking. The exception would be if they intend to help you evolve beyond a narrow vision to something broader Our egocentrism and fear of the unknown is why so many people are drawn to faerie images in which these feral elemental creatures look like beautiful humans…..

 Try experimenting with a group of people and sit with an herb  Have everyone close their eyes and meditate on the life force of the plant. The group may end up with very  dofferent interpretations which is similar to when different people look at the same situation but come away with different perspectives based on their beliefs ,position in the room and expectations. You may find that several people have the same vision of the plants life force. This result is an example of people tapping into the collective consciousness a cloud of energy floating above as if they are tuned into the same radio station. A common example  of this occurance is when you are thinking of a song and someone standing next to you begins to sing that song aloud. 

Essentially the faeries deepest expression is as the breath, intelligence and life force of Mother Earth. Our vision of humanlike faerie is an attempt to understand by creating something visually familiar. And yet we believe in love though we cannot see it. We are beggining to understand that through quantum physics that our attention largely affects what we see. We are beginning to disengage from defining the image and releasing expectations we are beginning to allow the essences or spirits of the fae to express themselves to us on their own terms. 

Faerie is the energy that grants you permission to be free. Faerie is the spirit that moves you beyond restrictions and guidelines. It bursts through condemnation and fear. It is the confidence that grants you protection from others opinions and judgements. Faerie energy allows you to fly to reach for your dreams. Faerie is the energy and impulse that leads you to your true self. 

Faeries can be ammoral and impish pight or dark. Fae can be playful but because Faeries feel nothing of societal criticism or disapproval Fae energy can drive you straight to a whole mess of drama without the slightest feeling of remourse. In fact some say that your drama is their sorce of entertainment. Fae dont take themselves as seriously as humans do. In the faerie realm fear is nothing more than a test ofctrust. Think of all the energy derived from trouble its quite visceral and magickal feeling with a lot of feeling for growth

An invitation for the Apprentice. 

There is a place between here and there, between us and them. Below the stars, and above the noise, in the silence. A place of connection for all living things, of wonder and the gallery. Wonder in and take a peek for you have been invited and I have been waiting for you.
Wander in 
and take a peek for you have been invited and I have been waiting for you.

Throughout all time, people of every Society  have turned the earth and attuned themselves to the web of life that pulses through all living things and found that means to sustain themselves. Wether they sought comfort from lavender or mending a broken down with comfrey ancient people knew that the way to ensure their health, survival and security was to call upon the rich supply of the earths herbs plants, and trees. 

And yet our ancestors did not stop at the point of just receiving. They developed and carefully cultivated a symbiotic, give and take, stewardship with the earth. Then they tended to the healing and nourishing of the plant life as tenderly as they took care of their own children, all the while understanding it was they who were dependent upon the earth and not the other way around. Their humility helped them forage a reverential relationship with the life force never vibrated within each plant and three. And by tapping into the earth life, they were part of the green magick that expanded the positive energy and vitality of the earth itself, which in turn increased the health of humans, animals, insects, and all plant life. 

As we carelessly and often unconsciously, deplete the earths resources, we have lost touch with the magic that was once at our fingertips. Many  look aside as wild verdant lands, and animal and plant species essential to the delicate balance of life, dissapearing at an alarming rate. By distancing  ourselves from nature, we have essentially denied ourselves the connection that would bring happiness, wholeness abundance, and peace to our lives. In fact, our innate ability to heal ourselves has become a nearly lost art. When we forgot the heart of nature is our own heart, we created a way of life that taxes the earths precious resources and creates the need to manufacture what was once organic and easily available. The final results has created fierce competition, fear  of dominance,and overwhelming feelings of lack.
Ask yourself, when did nature become something to avoid,and why? We are part of  nature, like a giraffe, a butterfly, a river, Legion, or chamomile. We just need to remember. We need to piece  ourselves back together by reestablishing our connection to the earth. We need to reclaim the magick of our bond with the life force that unites us all. 

There has been no other time in the age of humanity with the necessity and extreme importance of cultivating an ongoing relationship with Mother Earth it  has taken on such a vital importance. This back to nature perspective, today’s green movement, is at such a tipping point, its is both practical and spiritual, and as every day life used to be.

  1. Being eco-friendly is much more than buying halogen lightbulbs are using cloth bags. It means we once again form a friendship with our ecosystem. This is no ordinary friendship, we need to forage a sacred relationship with the life force in the trees  in our herbs, and plant everything. This life force the sentiment energy that exist at the heart of each plant is the fairy  or diva of each plant. The synergy of our sacred relationship with this energy is the green magick,the healing serendipity, and the wonderful found when we develop a bond with nature. When we truly understand, recognize, and believe in the living soul within each being, within Frana and Flora, one by one our collective compassion awakens and it becomes essential to preserve and protect the earth our home.

When you draw from botanical resources, whether you are flavoring food or working with essential oils for healing, you are tapping into an intelligent life force When you cultivate a garden you are attending to the living being whos response to your attention it’sseen in its growth pattern and increased potency and your recipes. 

The more you become aware of the consciousness of the botanical realm and a deeper your respect of the life  in each plant, the better cook, healer, Or gardener you will become because the plants give you an exact exchange for the energy you give them. Your acknowledgment of the plants true essencehelps carry the highest potentiality  into every concoction you will make. The time is come to develop a culture or Internet connection and communion with the earth energy The fairies.

Each fairy has an individual personality, but can appear as a reflection of the plant, tree or natural element where it resides. Fae or Devic energy can often take on abstract farms, such as a blanket of color or the oscelating energy of heat rising from asphalt in hundred degree weather. Fae can appear as a chorus of winged creatures or as beautiful woman or man. MHS have an individual to a collective form  and back again. Most certainly fairies will make up whatever you thought you knew about them. Considering how long plants of been around, their intelligence far exceeds our own, so it is them that we turn to for healing
The unique expression of each Fae as captured in and of the text in the blog speaks to the intrinsic qualities, traits and behaviors of each herb or tree. Fairies are beings in and of themselves, as humans are beings fairies are a seperate race co existing alongside us, like birds bringing food in their young or the bees pollinating flowers as you walk to work. The images of fairy essences found here is meant to bring  you closer to their essence than their form. When you give Fairies the respect and acknowledgment as the true living essence of plant life whole new vistas of possibilities open up for you, then the true magick can begin. 

Magick spelled with a K differentiates the word from Magic with a C as in tricks performed for entertainment. It also represents the realm of possibilities, expected serendipity, connection to all living things, and a deep reverence and wonder for nature. The spelling is Symbyotic and carries deep meaning, vibrant intersection of where heaven meets the earth the G points to the ground or form, similar to a vortex triangle that points to the earth and is generally yen, female, or resting energy.The K  reaches for the sky, where ideas are born, similar to the upward pointing apex triangle that is typically considered Yang, and represents the male  or active energy.

The overlapping Vortex and apex triangles create a symbol, Often known as the star of David. The intersection of form and thought is where the  magick happens. 

The Connection represents the material and spiritual coming together to develop the soul.  In magickal circles, we refer to the concept with the phrase as above so below. The souls work on earth is not complete if it dwells to long in the spiritual realm or a mundane reality. It must unite male and female, light and dark, intangible and material, heaven and earth to create magick. 

On earth, we live in that powerful meeting place where form is created from desire and need. 

The four elements of nature are the fundamental tools of magick. Humans are a representation of the four elements working in the sync; earth is our bodies, Water is our blood, air is our breath, and fire is our energy or spirit. Magick is that feeling when events and people in our life line up with ease and enlightened intention. When you get that tingly sensation and the air feels thick with electricity, you are in the infinate form at illimitable potential womb of creation.

Magickal spells are a matter and aligning your desire with  symbolic interpretation of what you want to create for example, a vision board and saying out  loud your intention the etimology of the word spell means the cast or speak your word. It is no different than in prayer. Rhymes found in spells speak to the right brain, the part of our consciousness that is most cynicaldream time world, when anything is possible.

The call to reduce our carbon footprint essentially points to the fact we must stop taking up so much space and give room for the plants grow. And as we create balance, we discover that every living creature need water, food, shelter and space to survive. What can be more important than allowing space for the plant kingdom that provides us with food and medicine?

Hemp oil is NOT medical cannabis

There is a lot of confusion about hemp and what we popularly know as “marijuana.” Most people assume that hemp and marijuana is the same thing. Historically, the government has lumped them together as banned substances. It doesn’t help that some medical cannabis proponents refer to it as “hemp oil.”

What is hemp and how is it different from medical cannabis?

Although hemp is technically a cannabis plant, it is a very different variety from the cannabis that is used recreationally and medicinally. The website, HempEthics, defines hemp in this way:

The term ‘Hemp’ commonly refers to the industrial/commercial use of the cannabis stalk and seed for textiles, foods, papers, body care products, detergents, plastics and building materials.

Hemp is an amazingly versatile and useful plant, not unlike its medical cannabis cousin in this regard. However, the similarity might end there. In addition to usage, there are several other ways that hemp and recreational/medical cannabis differ, according to HempEthics.

  • Unlike recreational cannabis that has been bred over the years to yield high THC (the psychoactive compound responsible for feeling “high,” as well as having a number of documented medical benefits), industrial hemp is very low in THC.
  • In hemp, it’s the stalks and seeds that matter. The stalk provides strong fiber for making rope, paper, textiles, and building materials and the seeds can be turned into cooking oil and food products, body care products, and biofuel. In recreational/medical cannabis, the prized parts of the plant are the buds and flowers of the female plant, the source of THC and CBD and other beneficial components.
  • Hemp and marijuana plants look entirely different. Hemp more closely resembles bamboo in the length and woodiness of the stalks and grows to an average height of 10-15 feet before harvest. In contrast, marijuana plants grow to an average height of 5 feet, with leaves and buds that grow out rather than up. Hence, hemp can be grown packed closely together whereas marijuana plants require a lot of space.
  • The growing conditions and environments also differ for each kind of plant. Recreational/medicinal cannabis plants need warm, humid environments to grow. The more delicate parts of the plant—the buds—require a lot of handling which make them suited for indoor cultivation. Hemp plants, on the other hand, are hardy and can grow in a wider range of areas. They thrive in fields that grow crops like corn and produce higher yields than other cannabis plants.

Blurred Lines

Recently, however, the lines between hemp and recreational/medical cannabis use have become blurred and consumer confusion has spiked as a result of new entrepreneurs—most motivated more by greed than by a genuine interest in wellness—attempting to find a new use for hemp as medicine.

Hemp and the CBD Craze

Marijuana entrepreneurs hoping to cash in on the new demand for CBD and circumvent the federal marijuana ban have increasingly turned to industrial hemp grown in other countries as an alternative source for CBD since importing hemp products is legal.  However, while it’s true that hemp contains trace amounts of CBD, these quantities pale in comparison to the high-CBD strains of cannabis.

Unfortunately, rather than being a viable source of CBD for medical cannabis patients, it was revealed recently in a Project CBD report that people have gotten seriously sick as a result of taking contaminated hemp products marketed for its CBD.

The risk of contamination runs high in commercial hemp cultivation since hemp is known for sucking up heavy metals, solvents, pesticides and other toxins from the soil. These toxins then become concentrated and passed along through extraction into the final product.

Let me expose the enterprise of manufacturing CBD-infused hemp products for what it really is – get rich quick schemes riddled with fraud and corruption.

The Hemp Industries Association’s Official Position

The Hemp Industries Association (HIA), concerned about the misrepresentation and misbranding of CBD products marketed as “hemp oil,” issued a June 2014 statement (PDF) to clarify the issue. In it, they state:

It is important for American farmers and processors of hemp to understand that most CBD in products mislabeled as “hemp oil” is a co-product of large-scale hemp stalk and fiber processing facilities in Europe where the fiber is the primary material produced at a large scale.

The HIA defines “hemp oil” as hemp seed oil, (a cooking oil and ingredient in food and body care products) and further states that:

CBD is not a product or component of hemp seeds, and labeling to that effect is misleading and motivated by the desire to take advantage of the legal gray area of CBD under federal law.

The stalks and fiber of hemp don’t contain CBD either, so where does the CBD in hemp come from? “Indirectly, as a co-product of flowers and leaves that are mixed in with the stalks during hemp stalk processing for fiber,” states HIA.

What this means is that hemp has not been grown or processed specifically for CBD, but rather CBD has been an incidental by-product. The hemp processed for fiber is not meant for direct consumption. Hence, up until its dual purpose with CBD extraction, the consequences hadn’t been noticeable if it was grown in contaminated soil.

In a surprising twist, the federal government introduced a 2014 Farm Bill with a provision that takes advantage of the fuzzy definition of “hemp” to also include high CBD cannabis strains with less than .3% THC in their flowering tops. As a result, research can now be done without the plants being treated federally as “marijuana.” This provision also allows “industrial hemp” (the high CBD strains under .3% THC) to be grown for the purpose of producing and selling CBD extracts in states where hemp cultivation is legal. The HIA differentiates these from general hemp, which it clearly states is “not suitable for producing CBD.”

Do the states that permit hemp cultivation understand this difference and offer consumers protection in the event that profiteers decide to extract CBD from the usual hemp variety with the dubious value and hazards that it entails? Obviously not

High quality CBD oil comes from the buds and flowers of CBD-rich strains of cannabis, not from by-product plant material.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Fade to Black

Life it seems will fade away hetting harder every day getting lost within myself nothing matters no one else I have lost the will to live simply nothing more to give….. 

been quite some time since I have felt this way. So exhausted. Just done. Truly do not want to be a part of this world anymore.
