This has been a good week.
Due to some wonderful weather, we have been able to spend lots of time outdoors planting our tiny vegetable garden, and letting the light warm and heal us.
We found an empty nest in our shed (from last year) to add to our nature table which was a real treat. I added a bit of birch bark I had found on a recent walk in the woods and a special feather given to me by a dear friend.
I have long been a believer in combining natural cures with traditional medicine, but have recently seen some incredible results using essential oils and herbs. I have begun using doTerra's Clary Sage for hormonal balance and in conjunction with my thyroid medicine it is really helping.
I got a great deal of fantastic knowledge from the Essential Oils e-book that was part of the last Ultimate Bundle. I saw here that they are releasing a new bundle. It really is a lot of amazing stuff for a low price. (Thank you, Sheila, for the recommendation!)
Valerian root has made a huge impact on my eldest son's chronic insomnia and a blend of peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus is soothing my husband's headaches a bit.
I am also really studying the use of healing prayer to aid the body and the mind. The works of Agnes Sanford, (whom I have always admired greatly) have opened up a whole new world to me.
Not only did she believe and practice allowing the love of God flow through her to heal people, she used the light of Christ to commune with nature(talking to bees and snakes and getting a response!) and prayed regularly for the strengthening of the earth.
If you are interested in participating in the restoration of people and nature, I do recommend her books. She is coming from a Christian perspective (she was the wife of an Episcopal priest) but even in the 1950s her words reached out to all kinds of folks, and were the catalyst of an ecumenical movement.
Healing and loving light to each of you, friends.
