Perform on an incoming tide, when the moon's new hold a silver coin, 2 seashells, and Vervain leaves in your hand and hold it towards the sea and ask for the moon's blessing. Then drink a toast to the sea and moon. Focus on your purpose and throw 1 shell as far as you can into the ocean (while chanting your wish). With the other, write your wish and your name in the sand below the tide mark. Wrap the shell and coin in the Vervain leaves and count seven waves hitting the shore, and bury it in the middle of your message. As you wait for the tide, chant: "Tide and time receive my wish And grant me new beginnings"

Get a white candle and get that burning and set the folded piece of paper burning. Say out loud: Goddess I pray, take this pain away. Into the light, away from the dark. God I pray, bury this pain. Cradle it in the internal dark. From the sun, to the moon. From the earth, to the stars. From the fires, to the waters. Into the carefree wind. Bring me into the light, away from the dark. Make me pure, make me free. By the grace of the heavens. So mote it be. Channel all negative energy that is left into the three black candles and let the positive energy from the white candle fill you up. Have the black candles burn all the way out and bury them at three points on your property in a triangle pattern. Gather the ashes and set them in the middle of the triangle.

This is something that can be done, alone, on a walk in the countryside, with no extra magical 'tools' or paraphenalia. It is simple magic and down to earth paganism. It can be applied for any need, but is particularly suitable for 'earthy' needs, such as money, housing, jobs, healing. Take one stone, and speak (or 'think') into it your need. Place the stone firmly on the ground. Take another and repeat, until you have a fair sized mound, or Cairn. As each stone is placed, imagine that the magic is building and that your need is getting nearer to being met. If you have no stones, you can still do this with imaginary stones, or pebbles, or whatever else seems right at the particular moment.
First make an infused oil using the Jewelweed. 2 ounces of dried herb or 4 ounces fresh herb and 2 cups of any vegetable oil- (you can use olive oil, almond oil, sesame oil, soy oil). combine ingredients in a double-boiler on low heat and let the herb "cook" for 1 to 2 hours. Strain into a sterilized jar. (If your not going to use the oil right away to make salve, then add 1/4 tsp. Vitamin E oil or Tincture of Benzoin for preservative). To make the salve: Gently heat 4 ounces of the infused oil in the top of a double-broiler type pan. Add approximately 1 Tbsp of beeswax or paraffin. Let melt. Add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E oil or Tincture of Benzoin to act as a preservative. Mix well. Pour or spoon into a jar. Let cool and cap. This is great stuff! You can purchase dried Jewelweed Herb from a Health-Food Store or by mail-order.

Many times our less positive past experiences can seem to be overwhelming and create a less than balanced experience in the present. This healing meditation is designed to allow you direct access to the energetic component of all of your past experiences and allow you to not only gain the benefit of forgiveness, but give you the opportunity to let go of the past. I highly recommend that you work on only one experience at a time. If you are working on numerous experiences with a particular individual I suggest you work on only one experience at a time. Please read this entire meditation through several times before beginning. If at any point you feel very uncomfortable during the meditation you should not continue. It is important that before starting that you find a quiet, comfortable place to sit where you will not be disturbed for at least 45 minutes. I find it helpful to take a good hot shower (not a bath!) before starting. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. It is best to wait at least three to four hours after eating before beginning. I find that this meditation is really best done in the early evening. After finishing you will need a good rest. You may wish to skip dinner altogether and to have someone else (if possible) have some soup ready for you when you are done. It is important that after finishing that you allow yourself at least 2 to 4 hours of rest. You will have transmuted a great deal of energy and your physical body will be tired. Also while you will have made substantial progress in healing, the rest will allow you to not revisit the issue for several hours. When you awake you will notice a substantial clearing of energy in regards to your issue. If you follow these steps you will have released most if not all the energy in regards to your issue. You will always be able to go back to the experience but you will have the strength to see it in a new light. However, once the issue is resolved I highly recommend that you just let it go. See it for the learning experience that it is and move on in gratitude. This process is not about judging or blaming others. This is a very powerful meditation and the energies at work here are very real. Judging or blaming others during this meditation will only prolong your healing and make it that much more difficult to release these energies in the future. While sitting in your meditation place pick an issue. It is probably best to pick a simple one until you are familiar with the process. For most people the first time the issue usually picks itself. If you have a standard practice to begin your meditation that puts you in a relaxed and open place you can use this to begin. Now begin to focus on your breathing. Follow the in and out breath without attempting to control the breath. Do this for 8 to 10 repetitions. Next we will do a series of affirmations in conjunction with the breath work. It is important to focus on the energy connected with these affirmations as you are breathing. The first part of each affirmation is the same and you will repeat the words on the in breath. The second part of each one is different and you will repeat it on the out breath. All three are done in order and the order is repeated each time. You repeat the affirmations in order 1, 2, and 3 and then start at 1 again. Do the affirmations for about 15 minutes.
· In Breath Out Breath · 1. I Am Whole and complete · 2. I Am As God created Me · 3. I Am completely Safe
5. Now you will want to focus on the experience that you chose at the beginning. It is important to remember that this time during this experience you are in complete control. Now begin to replay the experience in your mind. Focus in a very clear and objective way on the conversation(s) you had and as best you can remember what each of you said.
6. When you finish replay only your portion of the conversation. If you see (and you will) places where you treated the other person unfairly, were rude, or just went on a relentless attack you will want to sincerely offer an apology and ask for forgiveness. Prepare the content of your apology and imagine placing it inside a beautifully wrapped package. Take this package and place it front of the person (in your mind). Bow three times and each time say I am sorry. Then leave. (Again in your mind) You are not concerned with what happens to the package or what they do with. You focus should be on making a sincere, no strings attached apology.
7. Take a few minutes to breath and repeat the affirmations for 1 to 2 minutes. You just want to recompose for the next step and not loose momentum.
8. Now replay their portion of the conversation. This time be absolutely quiet. Try to forget your original reaction. It sometimes helps to see your self as an uninterested third party taking notes. Listen very carefully. Now replay it again and focus on the point the other was trying to convey. Think about how you would convey the same point. When they are finished thank them for sharing in the most sincere way you can. Now ask them if there is anything else they would like to say. Very often you will receive a great deal of insight into your relationship(s) at this point. So, Listen carefully!
9. Next you need to imagine their entire conversation as a whole piece. Allow the conversation to take whatever energetic form that seems appropriate. Remember you are not being attacked here but merely listening to what was expressed without any judgment.
10. While looking at this energetic package begin to watch your breathing and repeat the affirmations. When you are ready you need to allow this package to fully enter your heart center. Continue to breath and repeat the affirmations. Very soon you will experience a deep sense of peace. When you do look into the eyes of the person and say: "I have fully received your wondrous gift. Thank you for taking the time to share your wisdom with me." "I am most grateful for your gift, but it is no longer something I need." Now look deeply into your heart center, repeat the affirmations, and allow the energy you received to turn into pure love and light. Now repeat these words: "I have transmuted your gift into pure love and I joyfully return it to you in the fullness of love and joy" Now imagine that this "new" gift of love is flowing from your heart center to theirs. When the transfer is complete say: "I am honored to have shared this learning opportunity with you. May all beings be blessed by the love we have shared today." Thank them again and return to your heart center. Focus on your breathing and begin the affirmations again. Do this for about 3 minutes or less. Slowly bring yourself out of your meditation. Stand up, and when you are ready bow one time and thank the universe for this healing opportunity.

Lay down in a dark place in whatever position feels most comfortable to you. Visualize the darkness surrounding you glowing with a soft golden light. As you inhale deeply, breathe that light into you and cleanse yourself with it. See the light removing all impurities and disturbances. Visualize the problems and disharmonies as a sickly green light. As you exhale, this light comes forth from your mouth, taking with it all the bad things. Do this until the light coming from your mouth is only golden. All the green is gone. Now, as you continue to breath slowly and deeply, visualize yourself descending a staircase. With each step you take, feel your consciousness spread out a little more. When you feel as though you are in tune with your surroundings, come to the bottom of the staircase. Ahead of you see a long hallway that never stops. Staggered along this hall are doors. Behind every door is a different peaceful scene. If you want tranquillity, open a door to a tranquil scene. If you want to do a love ritual, open another door. Behind it you will feel the love that you will get from your intended. For wealth, visualize you making money in what ever way, and it will happen so. When you are ready, slowly walk up the stairs. You will feel your consciousness returning to normal as you go higher. You will awake feeling renewed and confidant.
Moon Phase: 4th Quarter Items Needed: dried lavender, sage, and hyssop; about 1 tsp. each patchouli or rose essential oil a tbsp. sea salt Fill the bathtub with hot water making sure the water is mildly uncomfortable, but not too hot. Before you get in, hold your hands above the water and recite 3 times: "This is Cerridwens Cauldron, the mists of change arise" Add the sea salt. Hold the lavender in your hand and say: "lavender for love" then sprinkle it in the water. Do the same for the sage and hyssop: "sage for strength, hyssop for healing" Add a few drops of the essential oil. With your hand, athame', wand etc. Stir the water widdershins (counter clock-wise) to create a downward spiral drawing energy. As you stir the water recite: "Flowers and water keep sickness at bay; The downward spiral takes it away." Use your intuition to determine how long you should stir and chant... Once in the tub, relax and visualize all the negativity leaving your body through your pores. With each breath, you exhale it from your body. Continue this for as long as you wish, but it should be at least 30 minutes. As an added boost, use a white candle to draw in positive energy and to purify, and a black candle to absorb the negativity. It also creates a softer light that makes it easier to relax. You can also burn your favorite incense to help you relax.
Massage is one of the single most important therapies used in healing. The visualization of chi, or 'life force," being manipulated is a valid method for moving healing energies through the body. This life force is thought to originate in the spine with its movement going either down the legs and out through the toes, or up the back and along the arms and then out through the fingers. In all techniques of massage that use visualization of chi there are some very basic rules: 1. Once you begin to touch the body, the movement should always be away from the spine, either up the body and out through the fingers or down the legs and out through the toes. If you begin to massage the neck, then you must visualize that energy moving out through the arms and then the fingers. You should not make any movement down the back. The flow and direction of chi are very important. 2. Keep at least one hand on your partner's body (if you are reaching for oil, for example). Once you begin touching the body, you should continue that movement until the energy is brought out through the feet or the hands. 3. Eventually your hands will become tired and cramped. According to conventional medical wisdom, you have strained them from overuse. Chinese practitioners believed however, that when this happens you have simply taken the nervous energy from your partner and brought it into your own aura. Their technique is to shake both hands, snapping the excess nervous energy off into space. It works. You relieve your cramps and your partner feels a definite loss of nerves 4. The more you are able to visualize the movement of this energy, chi, the more vibrant the experience of massage is to your partner. She or he will literally feel the energy! 5. Foot and ear massages are more important than neck and back massages. There are more meridian points in the ear than most of the rest of the body combined. The ear symbolizes the body in a fetal position. The foot also symbolizes the entire body as well, and by learning reflexology you can enhance the healing of internal parts of the body through correct massage of the feet.
There is a cure for the common cold! Take some ascorbic acid powder (vitamin C crystals), mix a teaspoon in juice and take hourly until you almost get diarrhea (tolerance). Stop taking it until the tolerance improves then restart the vitamin C, should be used at the first sign of a cold, the flu, and allergic reaction of any infection. Repeat until your symptoms of infection are gone. This simple therapy works because vitamin C in mega doses acts very much like an antihistamine, mobilizes your white cells and antibodies and, in general, clears out toxins from your body. Colds and flu's are also blunted by supplements of zinc gluconate lozenges. Other natural remedies for flu symptoms include garlic, bioflavinoids, Lactobacillus acidophilus (found in yogurt), cod or halibut liver oil, propolis and Echinacea. These may be used as an alternative for those who have trouble taking either vitamin C or zinc in larger than RDA doses. One study in adults showed that taking about 10 zinc lozenges (containing 23 mg of zinc) per day reduced the length of recovery from the common cold from an average of 10.8 days to 3.9 days.
When you select honey for medicinal use, always buy a variety that is produced by an apiary local to your area. Ingesting local pollens found in honey can build resistance to allergies over time. The honey should be raw, not heated or processed.
Take a six-inch ginger root and slice it. Put it in a non-aluminum pot with about 3 cups of fresh water. Cover the pot tightly and bring to a simmer. Allow the water to simmer (not boil) for about twenty minutes. Remove from the stove and add the juice of half a lemon, a pinch of cayenne pepper, and honey to taste. This is a great remedy for bronchitis and flu.
Take several cloves of fresh garlic. (Please don't use the genetically altered, odorless variety. It has lost its healing virtue.) Place the garlic in a blender with the juice of half a lemon. Blend until smooth. Add 1 cup raw honey and blend again. This mixture can be taken as it is in teaspoon doses for a sore throat, or strained through a cheesecloth and bottled for later use.
If you have a cut or a wound, wash it carefully and then apply chopped or mashed raw garlic, which will kill any bacteria or viruses. Cover the garlic with a slather of honey and apply a clean bandage. The honey will keep the wound anaerobic (without oxygen) so bacteria will be unable to grow in it.
In ancient Greece, true healers, those who sought to cure the whole person, body, mind, and soul, were followers of Hygeia, the goddess of health and healing. Nature and a healthy mind are powerful healers because the entire healing process exists within the body. When you use external treatments to attain wellness, you are activating natural, inner resources that normally serve to make you well without any outside help at all. The body can magically heal itself, provided you know what to do to keep it running at maximum efficiency. Hygeian healing uses preventive measures to enhance internal resistance to disease. You can promote healing by getting appropriate exercise and rest, holding good thoughts and mental images, fostering positive spiritual beliefs and practices, and eating less fat and protein and more grains, fresh fruits, and veggies. Hygeian tonics are especially effective for enhancing and toning the natural healing system and neutralizing harmful influences in the body.
GARLIC lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, is a powerful antiseptic tic, antibiotic, and anticancer agent, and protects liver and brain cells. Add fresh garlic in any form to your food daily. GINGER, known in ancient China and India, tones, uplifts, and warms the system, stimulates digestion and circulation, calms upset stomach, and relieves nausea, aches, and pains. Ginger can be eaten in candied slices, honey-based syrups, encapsulated, or drunk as a tea. GREEN TEA, the national beverage of Japan, protects the body against heart disease and cancer. It offers a benign form of caffeine along with great benefits as a general tonic. Try green tea instead of the usual coffee, black tea, or cola for a healthy pick-me-up. MILK THISTLE, an old European folk remedy, detoxifies and enhances liver function. Alcohol, pharmaceutical and/or recreational drug users or those who have suffered exposure to toxic substances should take this herb regularly. ASTRACALUS is a popular Chinese herb used to treat colds, flu, and chronic infections such as bronchitis, sinusitis, and AIDS. It restores immunity, and increases vitality and resistance to disease. Take encapsulated astragalus if you lack energy or feel stressed. GINSENG, usually recommended for men, is stimulating, sexually energizing, can improve the appetite, aid digestion, tone the skin and muscles, and balance hormones in women. It is a great rejuvenator for the tired, the elderly, and the chronically ill. Ginseng comes in candies, teas, wines, and elixirs. DONG QUAI is a Chinese herb, used predominantly by women to build blood, increase circulation, and regulate menstrual and reproductive disorders. Try dong quai in tincture or capsule form to restore balance. MAITAKE MUSHROOMS are highly esteemed for their healing properties. Add maitake tablets or capsules to your diet to protect your body against cancer, AIDS, chronic fatigue, hepatitis, allergies, environmental illness.
The waxing phase of the Moon is the best time to build the body up. This is when I use nurturing herbs and tonics to strengthen the body's natural immunities. Raspberry leaf is an excellent tonic for female reproductive organs; hawthorn berries are good for the cardiovascular system; nettle is a great blood tonic; marshmallow root is a soothing tonic for the urinary tract; astragalas is a wonderful immune system tonic; burdock is a good liver tonic; red clover builds fertility; oat straw is good for the nervous system; and alfalfa is a fantastic all-around nutritive tonic. These herbs are simple and gentle. They are best taken in a cup of tea, three to five times a day. During the waxing phase I also like to increase water intake to avoid water retention. The more water we ingest, the less water our bodies attempt to retain. This is also a good time to apply medicinal salves and to take therapeutic baths. Most importantly, I work during the waxing Moon to ensure that the body has all the nutritional support it needs. This is the body's building time, and it needs a good supply of minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids to be healthy. I would also not attempt to fast or to lose weight during the waxing Moon. Use energy healing techniques to strengthen and reconnect with the earth. Be careful to ground and center when healing so that you never use up your own life force energy. The universe is full of energy to use, and by tapping into it you will be able to help many more people than you could by using just your energy alone. FULL MOON The Full Moon lasts about three days. It is a very intense phase. Many women still ovulate with the Full Moon. This is the time to apply the most powerful herbs. Use cayenne capsules to treat infections of any kind. Goldenseal is a well-known herbal antibiotic. Echinacea and lomatium are anti-viral. Dong quai is an excellent herb for female hormonal fluctuations. Energy healing work during the Full Moon is very powerful. On the energetic level, it acts like a magnifying mirror. The strong lunar energy pulls everything out of hiding and reflects it back at us. This is often the time during an acute illness when people feel their worst. The Full Moon intensifies whatever else is going on. Often people aren't even aware that they're sick until the Full Moon hits. This is also an excellent time for psychological therapy. Emotions seem closer to the surface than usual and social inhibitions melt away. Agendas that have been simmering under the surface tend to come out under the light of the Full Moon. This is a time to strengthen relationships and reaffirm bonds. Never underestimate the healing power of simply holding someone's hand and listening. This is not the time for isolation or introspection . The Full Moon draws all of life toward it. Even the solid ground rises several inches when the Full Moon passes overhead! WANING MOON The waning Moon is the best time to employ therapeutic fasts. Avoid drastic fasting. There is usually no need to starve the body to heal it. However, it may be helpful to limit your intake to juices and soups for a few days during the waning Moon, particularly when struggling with the flu. Use purifying herbs in moderation at this time. Sage, usnea, ginger, lemon, thyme, lavender, and peppermint are all cleansing and clearing herbs. The waning Moon is also a good time to do sweats and diaphoretic (sweat producing) baths. In addition, if you are trying to kick a habit, do it during the waning phase. Use energy healing techniques to sever unhealthy bonds and strengthen boundaries. NEW MOON The New Moon is as powerful in its own way as the Full Moon. It is a time for taking stock. It is a phase of hibernation, retreat, and contemplation. Avoid crowds and gatherings and seek a little time for yourself. Rest is crucial during the New Moon. Simple foods and quiet times are powerful healers. Many women menstruate with the New Moon. It is natural to want to curl up in bed with a good book and nice cup of chamomile tea. Stronger nervines (relaxing herbs) are skullcap, hops, catnip, oatstraw, and valerian. After the New Moon ends and that first crescent appears, then the healing lunar cycle begins all over again. Most acute diseases do not last a full lunar cycle. The information in this article is only intended to be an educational tool, not a prescription. It is always wise to consult with your health care provider when experiencing any illness or discomfort. Awareness of the rhythms of nature can assist you and your health care provider in determining the best course of treatment at any given time. Naturally, some conditions will require that you apply therapies that don't necessarily "fit" with the phase of the Moon.
Prepare the space which you use as an altar by placing a white candle, a piece of paper, an ink pen, a quartz crystal, something which could represent a cauldron (I used a mortar from a pestle and mortar in the kitchen) and some oil - I used frankincense but that is horribly expensive, I got it as a present and only use it very occasionally. Cast the circle in whichever way you see fit. I normally start at the east and use the visualization techniques suggested - tracing a pentacle of blue fire in the air at each corner and visualizing its element - so at the east visualize a wide open plain with wind rushing across it, at the south feel the sun beat down on you and fill you with great warmth, at the west imagine yourself standing atop a cliff overlooking a wide, deep ocean, and at the north picture yourself standing at the foot of great mountains cloaked in dark forests. Then collect yourself, focus your mind and go back to your altar. At the altar, set your mind clearly to what you intend to do. Then light the candle, saying "I dedicate this candle to thee, Lord Apollo the Physician, and ask your aiding in fighting this illness." Breathe deeply for a while, feeling the power within the circle pool inside you, and when you feel ready, find a word which most typifies the illness for you - it could be its name (I chose "meningitis"), it could be the way it makes you feel ("misery" for example) - either way it has to represent the illness for you. Now, write the word on the piece of paper, and as you do it say "I imbue thee, paper, with the essence of this illness - thou shalt represent it for me in this ritual." Put the paper down, and then douse it with the oil, saying "With this oil I prepare thee, ." Hold the paper to the flame and set light to it. Be careful! Oil soaked paper burns A LOT faster than you expect it to. Drop it into the cauldron, saying "With fire I vanquish thee, , in the name of Apollo the Physician I destroy thee, " Repeat this phrase three times. Finally, center yourself again and hold the quartz crystal to your third eye. Breathe deeply and use the crystal as a resonator for the energy around you. If you are healing yourself, let the energy from the ritual which is inside the circle focus in the crystal and enter you, healing you and making you healthy and strong. If you are healing someone else, use the crystal to focus the energy of the ritual again but this time use it like a transmitter, sending the energy out along a shining path to heal your loved one. When this is done, thank Apollo for his presence - I said "I thank thee, Lord Apollo, for your presence here tonight - farewell, Lord!". Then close the circle by thanking each of the directions, starting at north and ending at east, and ground the energy - I always do this by reciting "Circle open but unbroken, power down to the ground," and pound my staff or stamp on the floor three times to let the energy flow out of me back into the earth. You can leave the candle burning as long as you like - perhaps until you get a sign that you or the sufferer is improving might be a nice idea.
A technique for rapid healing from injuries that often is effective is to go back in your mind to the moment of the accident and visualize as clearly and nearly as possible the exact event except change a detail /details so that the accident, injury, trauma , does not happen you are not in any way hurt, repeat the visualization over and over make it as real as possible ,if it is practical to act out the event as closely as possible in the physical world - as almost slamming the door on your hand that can make this even more effective. If you are in pain and the pain is reduced then its ok to drop the visualization but keep reinforcing this vision . Theoretically this is more effective if done soon after an injury but I have used it on injuries and traumatic experiences from years back with good results.
