I’m tired of doing everything and am ready to enjoy the slice of life! On that note it’s a great day to go hang out with my family! #balance #simplify #happiness #goodforthesoul

A week or so ago I posted that my guiding word, or power word for 2018 was “Simplify”. It was meant to be that this book should arrive from Brazil today, a part of a book share with @a_life_in_progress .

It’s a good morning to get caught up on herb storage. My supply is growing in leaps and bounds and am busy making herbal preparations and tea blends.

My “Guiding Word” for 2018!

This one small word will be my focus for 2018. As of January 1st I will have 52 weeks to simplify my life.

What is your guiding or power word for 2018?

The holiday season is winding down and soon a new year will be upon us. Do you have goals you would like to accomplish in the new year? I am not a big fan of the term resolutions. I like to set achievable goals and work towards them. Grab a journal and jot down a few goals for 2018. I find writing them down makes them more real. You can then expand on each goal and write down your steps along the way, check back in, reevaluate and readjust where needed.

Avoid To Do lists which can be overwhelming, write a Do This list. A list of things you’d like to do, things that will lift you up, inspire you on a daily basis. Feel good things. Soul food.

Remain positive and always mindful in the present moment.

I came across these beauties as I was walking down to the creek where the family was having a rousing game of hockey.

I know they are much sweeter after the first frost but we are beyond that time. Perhaps a nice cup of tea can still be had. The vitamin c is water soluble so you must steep it with the lid on. 🌹

Medicine people interpret messages from other realms: Otherworlds, Innerworlds, Peripheral worlds, Cosmic worlds. Their job is to learn to see what cannot be seen with western eyes and sagittal conditioning.
Their task is to read between the lines, develop sense-reliance, understand the infinite differences between living things while also seeking the relief and compassion found in our sameness. They are bridge-builders, translators, wayfinders, mapmakers. They are not always obvious in the culture. Keep your eyes peeled for them, outside yourself and within.

When we accept the shadow along with the light it offers us a place to sit that is neutral - a place where we can accept both equally without judgement #acceptance #forgiveness #noneedtotakesides

I prepared 3 different herbal tea blends while waiting for the Elderberry Syrup to finish. A lovely Nettle-Mint Tea, A Happy Tummy Tea and A Sniffle and Sneeze blend. Look forward to some fine brews!

Tonight I am preparing a batch of Elderberry Syrup. With cold and flu season upon us we could certainly use some immune system support.

I spent this evening with my nose in the books studying the History of Herbal Medicine. I am loving this @wildrosecollege course. I am both a History Buff and a Herb Nerd! This highly revered text pictured above would be a treasure for my library, but at the low low price of $5000 USD I shall have to pass 😉

Herbal medicine making today. This is a soothing salve to nourish dry and chapped skin, and can also be used as a lip balm. Made in small batches from a Calendula infused oil (also handmade), coconut oil, lavender essential oil, beeswax and pinch of turmeric for color.

This course completed this past semester was a game changer for me. It changed my life and my direction. It was part of a 2 year program in Wholistic Nutrition with the @bodymindinstitute however, since taking it, I have registered in four more @wildrosecollege courses and am on track to becoming an Herbalist. I believe strongly in plant medicine and other alternative practices. 2 years ago when I could hardly get out of bed, walk up stairs, go to work because of chronic pain and fatigue, a visit to a natural health practitioner had me back on my feet in as little as two months when western medicine was at a loss for a diagnosis. It is important to find and treat the cause from a Wholistic standpoint and not just medicate the symptoms not knowing the source. I am passionate about herbal medicine and a future of sharing it with others. Thank you to those who support me in reaching my goals.
