In Loving Memory of my Daddy ~ Kenneth 'Coop' Cooper

In Loving Memory of my Daddy Kenneth 'Coop' Cooper
February 15th, 2009

I will miss my father more than words will ever allow me to express. He was my hero, the wise one I listened to and sought advice from, he was my medicine man when I was ill. My dad was the first man I fell in love with as a little girl and no man will ever fill his shoes but others will walk closely behind. If my dad was having a good day and all was going well he would say, "It's a good day to die." I find comfort in his quick and painless passing but the sorrow will always be deep. He was a simple man, a t-shirt and jeans type of guy. We shared many passions in our love for nature and our connection with spirit. There were many times he stayed the night with me in the hospital and gave the nurses hell when I was in need and dealing with dis-ease. My father worried he would see his daughter pass this earth before him, but he could not bear this thought and I know now he and I both share a sacred comfort. He knows i am here where needed, for my mom and I know he is at his universal home awaiting there for me when my time has come.

I will miss our drum circles, playing euchre till the late hours of the night and watching him play with and pick on Destiny, his beloved granddaughter. I will miss the silly stories he shared with us from his youth and days of running around. I will miss our long talks, the bonfires around the fire and standing beside him at the kitchen window watching the birds and deer. I will miss the two of us picking veggies in the garden and seeing his pride towards the abundance of food he tended to. There are so many of these things we did on a regular basis that will never be the same.

I am blessed to have had such a wonderful man for a father. My last memory was only a few days before he passed. Him and my mom came to visit and upon them leaving we do as we have always have done. We hugged, said I love you to each other and we said good bye. This to me is priceless, and all my time with him was priceless. I only wish I would have hugged him longer and tighter that night had I known it was the last time his strong arms would hold me.

I just wanted to share the obituary that is currently online and will be in the Ashland newspaper this Friday.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at Werner Funeral Services, 175 W. 3rd Street, Mansfield. Friends will be received one hour prior to the memorial service. Following will be a Life Celebration with Family & Friends at the Baily Lake Village Center: 822 U.S. Rt. 250 North, Ashland Oh 44895 Thank you all for your love, compassion and sentiments.

My mom,
Earth Heart is doing as good as can be expected. We all have our ups and downs. Recently she wrote a short little blog about her simple man 'Coop' and their happiness. Please read it in the honor of his memory. Under the current circumstances there was no Weekly Lunar Reading & Magical Attributes or the weekly message from the Fairies. There may not be any blog postings for a couple of weeks and I know you will all understand and send your love.

A Wonderful Week

Greetings & Happy Valentine's Day to all! The past few days around here have been wonderful! This week I finally accomplished one of my goals in life. Took some manifesting and positive thinking but I finally got all my credentials, certificates and documentation with the Universal Life Ministry. Yay for me! And many thanks to all of my readers that sent me an email or left a comment to congratulate this achievements!

Earlier this week I made two dozen chocolate chip and chocolate cupcakes for Valentine's day. They are already gone however and didn't last long with my sweet tooth. I cut out a heart shape from a leftover holiday card and then sprinkled some powdered sugar over them for a cute little Valentine's Day treat.

Last night Tom decided to give me my Valentine's Day gift. I honestly wasn't expecting anything more than a card. We don't usually do much for each other as our finances have been shy with his falling hours at work. Upon handing me an envelope last night I opened it to discover a very romantic card. Inside the card was a gift card for my current acupuncturist. I immediately starting crying! I haven't seen my acupuncturist in several months even though I am well past due for a treatment. Tom had been bugging me to schedule an appointment with Carrie the worlds most compassionate and 'real' person and acupuncturist. She is in angel in disguise! My first treatment was well over a year ago. I walked in to her building with Tom on one arm and a cane in the other. Most other times I used a wheel chair and I was extremely limited with my mobility. Carries knowledge and experience with ancient Chinese medicine and acupuncture worked miracles on my physical and emotional state of being. When I opened that card from Tom and saw that he had purchased me three, one hour sessions the tears just started flowing. Carie was delighted to see Tom when he stopped by her office to get me the gift card. We had both been thinking about each other and wondering how the other one was doing. I hadn't called or emailed becasue I felt a little guilty in my lack of communication. Carrie had been feeling the same way, however we had changed phone numbers and she had no way of contacting me. I don't believe in coincidences and this was no coincidence for sure. I told Tom this was the best gift I had ever received for Valentine's Day. I spent the rest of the night cuddling up to him, hugging him and thanking him for such a thoughtful gift. First thing Monday morning I am calling Delaware Acupuncture Clinic and getting an appointment with Carrie!

I decided to do something nice for Tom as well. Currently I have none of my own income as I haven't received an Oracle Reading order in over a month. No biggie though. I'm a creative type of gal. I worked two days straight on creating him the most professional and custom resume in a broacher format. I also created an online resume for him so potential employers can check it out. Took me a while but the end result is and will be worth it. Plus I know that Tom really appreciates it. As a goddess I have the ability to turn a regular evening together into something beautiful, erotic and exciting. I'll be sure to use some of this weeks posts with Nature's Remedies for arousal and exotic dreams tonight as part of my gift to him. ;-)

Speaking of Tom... he just came in from working in the garage all morning and early afternoon. I think I will finish this blog so I may go spend the rest of this Valentine's Day with him. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Manifesting one of my Life Goals

It's been a great day today! I've always considered Friday the 13th as a lucky and somewhat sacred day. Back in the older times this day was considered one of the luckiest days out of the entire year. One was filled with joy and anticipation of the possibilities that could or would take place on the 13th of a Friday.

Last night I enjoyed the company of my parents during dinner and quite some time after as well. They bring such delight to our home. I do value time with family above all other things. :-) It is one of the most important experiences in my life.

Today I received by documentation that certifies me as a legally ordained minister. I've studied enough with the Pagan, Druid, Native and Earth based religions to receive legal and spiritual status as High Priestess. I am very excited about this and as of next week, I will have my documentation and credibility for the position. I will also be receiving my credentials and certification as a Spiritual Healer next week, and may be on my way for my first Reiki atonement! It is my hopes to be more open in providing my services for such things as house blessings, aura and spirit cleansing, handfastings, ancient ceremonies and rituals, etc. I may begin to do Life Celebrations for those that have past this world to enter the new. This is something I have considered for many years and may pursue. Once I get the rest of my documents and certifications I will be posting them on my website the Giving Earth, where I will then be able to provide certain services. I will continue to do my Oracle Readings as I have always done them since I was a child. It's part of my life and who I am. :-)

I just wanted to share my excitement and joy with all of you! You are all my universal family and being I don't get out much because of certain man-made toxins, I value you all more than you know! Thank you to all of my subscribers and blog followers. You are sheer delight in my life!

Peace, Love and Blessings of Abundance to all of you,

Nature's Remedies: Arousal and Passion
Visit for more unique graphics!

I love to post the Nature's Remedies for others to read and use. With Valentine's Day right around the corner I thought it would be appropriate to post a blog on how to naturally arouse, attract and stimulate a few of our sensual senses. This weeks Message from the Fairies indicated that we should allow our inner and outer beauty to shine. We are creatures that are capable of experiencing some of the most profound emotions, passions and erotic situations.

In many ancient religions a ceremony was held with 2 or more consenting adults making love while surrounded by the rest of the covenant or tribe. This was done because an orgasm was considered to be one of the most sacred experiences a human being could have. When we release those endorphins we are at our vibrational peek for receiving and transmitting positive energy and vibrations. To learn more about this and other reasons why it is important for us to acknowledge our capabilities with this action please check out the Global Orgasm website and their scientific findings. Later this week I will post some other natural remedies and recipes for beauty aids and enhancements, skin treatments and many others.

~ Arouse Passion ~
This sensual aphrodisiac exerts its effects on both the mind and body, may help in attracting the opposite sex or those with like pheromones. This recipe can also relieve stress and relax the spirit.
  • Fill a dark colored bottle with 4 to 6 ounces of spring water.
  • add 6 to 8 drops or more of Rose-Otto essential oil
  • shake well and store in refrigerator when not in use.
  • place mixture on pulse points of body

~ Exotic Dreams & Experiences ~

This remedy works well in producing exotic dreams and visions. Will also lift your mood and encourage your imagination to take flight. I recommend using this aromatherapy blend beside your bed while love making with your partner.
  • Blend the following ingredients together with a base oil in an aromatherapy lamp beside your bed or somewhere you and your parter will be close:
  • 5 drops Patchouli essential oil
  • 4 drops Ylang-ylang essential oil
  • 4 drops Lavender essential oil
  • Note: You can also make this recipe into a lotion by adding these essential oils to a non-scented base lotion and mixing well.
~ Pure Organic Vanilla Extract ~
Vanilla is a natural attractant for most men and women. Something about the comforting aroma the vanilla has sooths our nerves and stimulates a hunger in more ways than one.
  • Use only an Organic Vanilla that is a pure extract
  • place a small drop behind the ears, under the wrists, behind your knees, at the base of your neck and the small of your back.
  • place a few extra drops around your belly button and other areas to lead a scented path to the place of your or your partners liking.
~ Sunstone Essence ~
Sunstone is a gemstone that induces arousal and sexuality. Below is a couple of methods for using this stone:
  • Place the stone in a quart jar of spring water and charge in the bright light of the sun for a few hours. Place by nightstand or bed.
  • Do as above with a smaller amount of water and add a few drops of the water to your current lotion.
  • Take a long and sensual bath and place the stone in the tub with you or on your body.

Oracle Message from the Fairies 2/10/09

Title: Grateful ~ Image copyright © Rainbow Tree (aka Kandice Thompson)

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to speak a message for those that want to listen. Each week I do an Oracle Reading with the Fairies to ask their guidance and opinions on life in general. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read.

The message received this week is: "Beauty".

As soon as the fairies gave me their message it had already resonated with me. Many of us goddesses and domestic women need reaffirmed sometimes by our loved ones and ourself that we are creatures of beauty. In our own unique way we are all attractive. The fairies are urging us to appreciate and amplify our natural attractiveness. Your beauty is most apparent when you are happy and filled with gratitude.

The fairies demand and require that you never, under any circumstances put yourself down or think ill of your physical self in any way! Always think warm and loving thoughts thoughts about your body, your hair, face, weight, height and every millimeter of your physical self. You must learn how to appreciate and love who you really are.

Each and every day you should tell yourself as much as possible that you are beautiful. Your inner light shines and radiates through every core of your being. Know that others are attracted to your inner and outer beauty.

The fairies recommend pampering or treating yourself like a goddess. Invest the time and a little money in services that make you feel beautiful and boost your inner light. Spend the day soaking in a tub full of bubbles or rose petals, get a new hairstyle or treat yourself to a nice body massage. Spend time in meaningful ways that make you feel joyous and happy. You will begin to glow with the attractiveness that you are a truly happy and beautiful person both physically and spiritually.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
My physical and spiritual self is radiantly attractive. I LOVE my Beautiful self!

Weekly LUNAR Reading & MAGICAL Attributes: Feb 9th - 15th
Visit for more unique graphics!

Todays Date: Monday, February 9th, 2009

Moon Phase:
100% of Full (Penumbral Lunar Eclipse)

Moon's Place Today: Leo

Lunar Reading:

Such a sacred night tonight! Any full moon is considered sacred, but tonight is also a lunar eclipse. **eclipse may not be seen from all locations
This week and today you are going to feel more inclined to get back to your roots. You'll find yourself enjoying the simplicity of smaller events and outings. The urge to spend more time with nature is part of this simplicity. Getting back to your roots may not mean from this life, you may begin to feel or experience ancestral memories from your past. This really applies to those living within city boundaries that absorb much of the residual and negative energy, and the environmental impact is has on their physical and spiritual state of being. This also applies to all of us, even the greenest or most sustainable and spiritual of folks. We feel a small void or a call to respect more, love more and do things a little differently than society calls the normal. It's all part of our evolutionary process and spiritual enlightenment and should be recognized and honored.

During the next few days focus on the positive aspects of your life. Know that life here, in this shell we call a body is too short to focus on, dwell or analyze the negative manifestations we have created or allowed ourselves to continue to be a part of. Focus on what is right in front of you. You have love in yourself and for yourself. You can choose to live in that moment or situation or get past it and focus on the new of the today, this moment. This very moment you are sitting here reading this blog, you chose to focus on this instead of any negative thoughts or current situations, so therefor you know how to be in a moment and allow any negativity to be replaced or unfocused on. Giving negativity little to no thought allows your mind the needed ease for clarity of any confusion. Take a time out and know you are blessed with an overwhelming abundance of love, gratitude and thanks. Share the blessings, love and thanks with whom ever you come into contact with this week.

The month of February offers a very sacred night sky. There are many celestial events some annual some that may never be seen again in our lifetime. Please visit my post about Sacred February to learn more about these events and when they take place.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

There is to be no major magic work done today nor three days after the eclipse. Only Blessings of Gratitude, Love and Thanks should be given at this time. It is highly important to give our requests a rest. We must also allow a time of purity when all we do is be thankful and give blessings of love and gratitude. There is a beautiful and pure form of energy during a Full Moon, especially one with a Lunar Eclipse. This should be honored by us as we are the ones that are blessed.

You may charge your magical and light working tolls at this time for use later on. The energy and vibrations during a full moon and an eclipse are extremely powerful. When charging any items under this moon and lunar event such as crystals, anthem and wands, scrying devices, etc, make sure you place a circle of sea salt around the items and give thanks. Honor and thank each direction and/or element of the earth.

Below you'll find one of my Full Moon Blessings that can be used if you only have a short time to honor and give thanks to the beautiful moon. If time is on your side or, you have a large group or coven you may want to consider viewing a previous Full Moon Meditation & Blessing blog post. Either way the universal energy will appreciate your humble acknowledgment.
Reverend Rainbow Tree's Full Moon Blessing

Bless the sacred moon I see.
Tis a new era from the earth, sky and sea.

I raise my arms to the possibilities.

Allow every human form to see all realities.
Open hearts and minds for a universal healing.

Awaken those who ignore the feeling.

Bless the sacred moon I see as she is part of me.

I thank the sacred directions that surround me.

I draw your energy to me so I may help others to see.
Let your moonlight shine a path.

Cleanse all life in one universal bath.

Bless this sacred moon I see.

So mote it be.

Your Mission for this week:

Get back to the basics. Your ancestors are urging you to get back to your roots of life, love and spirituality. Give more thought to happy memories and less thought to the what ifs of later today or tomorrow. Spend time with family or friends and turn the television off. Make a commitment to have dinner with someone tonight be it your spouse, the kids, family as a whole, and old friend or even your furry four legged family. Sit down at a table, no television, no radio. Spend the time after dinner playing a game or chatting about good times. If someone brings up a negative or sad story simply interrupt with a quick "Let's keep this positive and fun, name me three things of necessity you are thankful for." The conversation will most likely take a turn and go back to the positive energy raising that was taking place from all the good vibes.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)

Sacred Night Sky in February

There is much going on in this months night sky. Here is a quick little calender/guide I have created so you can enjoy these exceptional and phenomenal events from the universe.

Full Moon
February 9th
See my archives or 'search' my blog for several different full moon blessings and ancient rituals.

Total Lunar Eclipse
February 9th
Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, the Pacific Ocean, and western North America. No major magic should be done during this time. Only self cleansing, thankfulness and blessings of abundance should be given.
New Moon
February 25th
See my archives or 'search' my blog for several different new moon blessings and ancient rituals.


The highlight of the month of February. Located about 30-40 degrees above the southwest horizon, Venus is the brightest “star” looking planet in the sky for the first few hours of the night. Venus is at maximum height at the beginning of the month. As the month progresses, it will appear slightly lower in the sky. On February 20, it will be at its brightest. Through a telescope, Venus appears like a brilliant less than half moon. The Moon will pass within 1.2 degrees of Venus on the night of the 29th.

Conjunction of Jupiter, Mars & Mercury
All are located near each other in the morning sky. Mercury is the only visible planet of these three at the start of this month. On February 24th, all three planets will be within 4 degrees of each other. The trio of planets will be easiest to find in the early morning of February 22nd and the 23rd. The sky will be darker as the moon will be in crescent shape. Look to the east about half an hour before sunrise. Binoculars may be needed to spot Mars as it will be hiding near the early glow of twilight.


Ceres is the biggest asteroid in the Main Belt with a diameter of 585 miles or 975 km. It is so big that it is now considered a Dwarf Planet. Classified as a carbonaceous (carbon-rich) Cg-type asteroid, there are suggestions that it may be rich in volatile material such as water. Some even propose that an ocean exists below the surface. Ceres is one of two targets for NASA’s Dawn spacecraft which is scheduled to visit it in 2015. This month Ceres is located in Leo brightening from magnitude 7.2 to 6.9. It reaches its brightest at opposition on February 25.

Pallas is also a carbonaceous asteroid though with a slightly bluish B-type spectrum. Due to its high inclination (tilt of its orbit with respect to Earth’s orbit) of 34 degrees it is a difficult target for future spacecraft missions. Pallas is large with dimensions of 350×334x301 miles or 582×556x501 km. This month it moves through the far southern constellations of Eridanus and Lepus. It fades from magnitude 8.2 to 8.4 over the course of the month.

Euterpe was the 27th asteroid discovered when it was first seen in 1853. It is an S-type asteroid with a stoney or silicate composition. With a diameter of 58 miles (96 km) it is much smaller than Ceres, Pallas or Vesta. The reason it can get as bright as them is due to its orbit which brings it closer to the Sun and Earth. This month Euterpe is located in Cancer. It starts the month at magnitude 8.9 and is at its brightest at opposition on February 4 at magnitude 8.8. By the end of the month, it will have faded to 9.6.

Amphitrite was discovered in 1854, Amphitrite was the 29th asteroid to be discovered. Similar to Euterpe, Amphitrite is also a stoney S-type asteroid. With an average diameter of 127 miles (212 km) it is bigger than Euterpe though its further distance from the Earth and Sun keeps it from getting as bright. Ampitrite is located in Leo all month and will brighten from magnitude 10.2 to 9.7. It will reach its brightest at opposition on March 22 at magnitude 9.1.


Comet Lulin was discovered by the Lulin Sky Survey in Taiwan on 2007 July 11. At the time the comet was located beyond the orbit of Jupiter. It will be closest to Earth in late-February and may be able to be seen with the naked eye.

Much but not all of this information was provided by The Transient Sky website.

A Witch's Kitchen: Salads

A Kitchen Witch can never have too many spices, herbs and recipes for all sorts of dishes! No matter what I am cooking I am aware of the properties from the herbs, oils and others items I use. Every dish I cook is blessed and thanked and of course has a little magical quality to it, not to mention an overall quality for health as well.

Previously I posted a blog titled A Witch's Magical Kitchen. In the post I named and described several common herbs that should be in your kitchen for food and magical use.

Here are a few of my favorite and simple Salad recipes, but please note I did mention the brand names for the items used. All ingredients are non GMO'd (genetically modified or engineered) and/or certified organic to maintain my current state of health becasue of severe sensitivities. All ingredients were either purchased at the Whole Foods Market or grown fresh from our organic garden. The next Witch's Kitchen blog will pertain to side dishes or main courses.

Baby Spinach & Basil Italian Salad
1 large bag of Baby Spinach or approx. or 12-16oz. fresh from garden
1 - 4oz. package of Sweet Basil or 4-5 sprigs from garden
2 dozen green olives sliced in thin strips
2-3 cloves of garlic chopped ultra fine (more or less to taste)
1 medium onion diced
2-3 banana peppers de-seeded and cut into rings
Tare basil into pieces and toss above ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside while you make the fresh dressing.

Salad Dressing:
¼ cup of Cold Pressed, Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. sea salt
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
In a 1 cup measuring cup, measure oil and add remaining
ingredients for the dressing. Stir with a whisk till mixed and pour
over salad. Toss salad ensuring all parts are covered with dressing.
**Serve immediately, does not store or refrigerate well after dressing
has been added.

Cesar Pasta Salad
(my daughters favorite)
1, 12 - 16 oz. bag of naturally colored pasta
1 - Organic Cesar Salad Dressing (whole Foods Brand)
8 oz. Organic Feta Cheese (crumbled)
8 oz. Organic Parmesan Cheese (shredded)
1/4 pound Wellshire Farms Pepperoni (diced)
Cook pasta according to directions on back of package. Rinse with cool water when pasta is tender. Add dressing stir until covered well. Add remaining ingredients and serve. For added flavor refrigerate over night.

Easy Pasta Salad
1 – 12 to 16oz. bag of Organic Pasta (preferably natural colored swirls)
1 – Jar of Certified Organic store bought Italian Dressing (oil & vinegar w/herbs)
1 – Green Bell Pepper (de-seeded and diced)
1 – Red Bell Pepper (de-seeded and diced)
½ pound of Wellshire Farms Muenster cheese chunked into bite size pieces
¼ pound of Wellshire Farms Nitrate free Pepperoni chunked like the cheese
Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl with a sealed lid. Best flavor is achieved when pasta sets overnight in the fridge. **This is an easy recipe and convenient for hauling to those summer time family gatherings.

These recipes and my other blessings & rituals would be a great addition to your Book of Shadows!

Nature's Remedies: Fractures, Sprains & Strains
Visit for more unique graphics!

A couple times a month I like to post a blog titled Nature's Remedies. In the past I have published alternative and natural medicines for such ailments as; Firbomyalgia, Headaches, Feet issues and a few others including Common Colds & Ailments.

I've had my fair share of bone issues this week. First the our big dog accidentally bit down on my left hand when roughly playing with his toy. He simply caught my hand and not the toy, resulting in a bruised bone and tendon. No big deal as some of the remedies below have eased it and it no longer needs attention. Secondly, upon leaving the home the other day to do our twice a month trip to the Whole Foods Market, I smacked me knee quite hard on the door frame. I was trying to grab the door behind me as Tom was getting the other porch door open for me. When I suddenly turned to catch the door and pull it shut I banged my knee. Immediately it began to throb, burn and ache with a groaning and grinding feeling. Tom had to come back in the porch and give me a lift to and into the truck. Two days later and the kneecap is black and blue, swollen and for sure fractured. The darkly humorous part is that my left ankle as the bone marrow bleeding and bone issues so I tend to wear a brace for support and use my right as much as possible and it was my right kneecap. So now that I have been using my left leg and ankle for more support, it's causing the ankle to turn black and blue and swell with a roll. Maybe... just maybe the universe is trying to tell me to stay off my feet for a while? (chuckles) I figured this would be the perfect time to post what I am doing to heal myself in an alternative way to western medicine.

Arnica Montana: Taken sub-lingually this homeopathy medicine aids in reducing even the worst cases of inflammation for broken, strained or sprained bones. Arnica is so beneficial it has even been used to prevent and stop premature labor and birth in pregnant women. As with all homeopathic medicines you should take the highest dose possible at the first onset and continue till the symptoms begin to subside. When symptoms begin to subside you can lessen the dose amount or simply take them less often. Arnica comes both in sub-lingual tabs and in a cream, gel or oil to place directly on your body as needed. If you take the sub-lingual tabs use a high dose of 6C or 6X. A dose marked 12C or 30C contains a lesser amount of the actual arnica. You should take 5 tabs of the 6C strength every 5 to 15 minutes until the pain begins to subside. Once you begin to feel relief cut back on your dosage to every 1 to 2 hours. Continue this until you can lessen your amount from 6C to 12C or 30C every 3 to 4 hours.

Belladonna: yet another homeopathic medicine that works wonders for your body! Belladonna is commonly used to treat scarlet fever. However the benefits go far beyond reducing a high fever. Belladonna has many purposes. It aids as a relaxer for your overall body. Taking a high strength (6c) every 15 to 30 minutes is only recommended in the most severe cases of bone trauma. If your symptoms are minimal take 5 tabs sub-lingually every 1 to 2 hours until pain subsides. Combine them with the Arnica for a quicker and longer lasting effect. You can take Belladonna on a regular bases to aid in these symptoms but if you do, you will want to choose a lesser dosage like a 12C or 30C. Take note that Belladonna will make you sleepy if used in a high dose multiple times. It can be used at night as a sleeping aid to help your body relax and fall asleep with ease. Belladonna is safe for children in small doses and is known to be a wonderful aid in teething relief. Belladonna also helps a nauseous stomach.

Comfrey (Symphytum Officinale): Used for healing wounds and injuries of all kinds, in particular the mending of broken bones. From a pharmacological perspective comfrey contains the substance allantoin which is known to stimulate cell production in the repair of connective tissue, bone and cartilage, thereby speeding up the healing process. It is also noteworthy that the plant contains significant amounts of calcium and phosphorus, the very minerals needed in the composition of bone.
Comfrey is best used fresh and simmered or purchased in a powder form. Use the sticky paste (distilled or spring water and the herb) to make a compress and attach it with an elastic bandage. Use every night. This will speed the healing of the fracture dramatically.

Chamomile Tea:
The chamomile herbs will aid in your hypersensitivity to pain. The flowers of this plant produce a calming experience for your overall body. I do not recommend using a store bought brand that comes in individual tea bags. You should strickly use certified organic when it comes to consuming any flowers, teas or beneficial herbs. Those that are not certified organic are subject to harsh chemicals and pesticides that will poison your body. The oldest method of making chamomile is tea is the most effective. Place 2 tablespoons of the fresh or dried flower in a sachet or infuser. Pour 1 cup boiling water over the 2 tablespoons of chamomile tea. I suggest using double the amount of the chamomile flower for higher potency. Cover your mug with a plastic baggie or some sort of saucer so the steam from the tea doesn't evaporate. You want to keep all the properties of the chamomile in the cup. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes minimal with the tea covered. If you must have it sweetened use only honey. Take Care: If you have severe hay-fever reactions you should avoid the chamomile flower as you may become more active verses relaxed.

Chamomile & Lavender bath:
Nothing will help relax your body and mind like a nice calm and cozy warm bath. Place a sachet or cloth baggy full of organic lavender and chamomile flowers/leaves. Let the herbs steep into the warm bath water and relax for at least 15 to 20 minutes. The benefits of the herbs absorbing into your body and the aromatic smells will help ease your symptoms in no time.

Rest & Relaxation: One of the best things you can do is to simply rest & relax. I know, easier said than done right? That always seems to be my battle. :-) Keep what ever part of your body is injured above your heart for at least 20 minutes, 6 times a day. If your leg or knee is injured like mine than lay on a couch or bed with your leg elevated as high as it will go. Make sure you still use that part of your body but do so with care. In my case my kneecap is fractured. When my leg is straight (this is how it is comfortable) I still stretch my ankle, rotate it, wiggle my toes and so on to allow proper circulation to the injured area. Keeping the entire limb or area immobile will slow the blood flow and the healing process.

Oracle Message from the FAIRY Realm 2/03/2009
Visit for more unique graphics!

From time to time the Fairy folk feel a need to speak a message for those that want to listen. Each week I do an Oracle Reading with the Fairies to ask their guidance and opinions on life in general. I do this for myself and anyone else who wants to listen or read.

The message received this week is: "Make New Friends".

Old friends and acquaintances may begin to part ways. You have shifted to a higher frequency and new friends and universal family members will be entering your life. You are beginning to attract like minded people into your life. You're not judging nor rejecting your old friends by parting ways, you are simply making room for the much needed spiritual growth. It's likely that you don't share as many common interests with these old friends. As we grow with age we continue to evolve spiritually and physically, but each of us on our own level.

The fairies are encouraging you to embrace this shift of your thoughts and emotions. Focus on more spiritually natured topics verses the trials and tribulations of everyday life. The universal law of attraction is working in your favor by providing you with these new friends, views and insight. Your spirit guides ask you to not worry about these natural shifts in your life. There will be many more personal shifts before you leave your earthly shell. Know within the very core of your being that you deserve wonderful friends that support, understand and inspire you.

Be open to the new friendships right in front of you or just around the corner. It takes two to develop the loving bond friends can share. Your new found friendships will allow the growth of your spiritual state to be greater than you once thought possible. Embrace this higher frequency and share it with your new found universal family and friends.

The fairies feel you should write or verbally aloud repeat the following affirmation daily:
I am grateful to have the love and support of such wonderful friends.

Weekly LUNAR Reading & MAGICAL Attributes: Feb. 2nd - Feb. 8th
Visit for more unique graphics!

Todays Date: Monday, February 2nd, 2009 (Imbolc)

Moon Phase:

Waxing - 2nd Quarter: 48% of Full (next Full Moon: February 9th)

Moon's Place Today:

Weekly Lunar Reading:

Happy Imbolc my Universal Family! The First of February belongs to Brigid, (Brighid, Brigit, Bride,) the Celtic goddess who in later times became revered as a Christian saint. Originally, her festival on February 1 was known as Imbolc or Oimelc, two names which refer to the lactation of the ewes, the flow of milk that heralds the return of the life-giving forces of spring. Later, the Catholic Church replaced this festival with Candlemas Day on February 2, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary and features candlelight processions. The powerful figure of Brigid the Light-Bringer overlights both pagan and Christian celebrations. Many people of different faiths celebrate a variety of styles and ways yesterday and today.

Imbolc is mostly celebrated by women. Until recently, women in the Outer Hebrides Islands would re-sanctify their houses each February, bringing Brigit into the croft in the form of these items: new fire, Brigit's sun wheel cross, and her plaited straw belt or crois.

This time of year the trees begin to show a sign of life once more. We may not see it on the outside but their sap begins to move slowly once more. The darkness of night that began on Samhain, now yields the returning sun. Ewes give birth at this time to produce milk to feed their lambs. We too as humans go through a form of growth or renewal during this time. We are urged to allow the cycle to shed our skin/allowing a new smooth and beautiful layer to develop. Please see one of my previous posts 'Cleansing of the Spirit & Soul' for multiple and highly affective blessings & rituals to cleanse ones emotional and spiritual self.

The days begin to grow longer as we approach the balance of the upcoming Spring Equinox (Ostara), when both day and night (light & dark) are perfectly equal. Many of us are feeling the need for the growing days of sunlight. The dark days of winter tend to leave some of us feeling down, depressed or even ill. Your creative mind and cleansing acts will be most productive during this time if you choose to acknowledge. I recommend doing a Soul & Spirit Cleansing or a Cleansing Ritual Bath before you begin any form of physical or spiritual manifestations or creations. Any problems lingering around your mind may be causing a lack of sleep. Confront your tasks and finish them before the upcoming full moon. You need the feeling of ease and accomplishment this week to reassure your chosen corse of actions and creations.

If you are experiencing relationship troubles or communication problems with a loved one, take care. This means things are a little sensitive around the edges for the moment. Take extra time and notice the highlights and the little things you really love and enjoy about that person. Reflect on those and only those thoughts. Tell the person directly how important they are to you and that you have been reflecting on all the little things you love about them. This in it's self will aid in the healing of the tension or the 'too content' feeling one or both of you have.

For the Magic Doers & Light Workers:

Your Hearth/Home is one of the most important places and should be cleansed metaphysically monthly. During the approaching Spring and Ostara are an important time to cleanse such areas and your home as a whole. We must rid the lingering residual and negative energy that has accumulated in the dark months of winter. Any form of cleansing done by herbal smudging, a witch's broom, reiki, vibrational mists and/or blessings and prayers is prefect. Using a combination of any of these simply makes new energy more positive on a vibrational scale.

There are hundreds of blessings and prayers for your home and kitchen to cleanse and rid. You can Google about anything these days! I too have my own collection that I have personally written with the help of ancestral energy.

Reverend Rainbow Tree's
Home Blessing
May God/Goddess/Spirit give blessings to the house that is here.
Bless the stone and beams that provide the foundation.
Bless the window from foot and head that provide light.
Bless the entrance that welcomes us home.
Bless the dwellers that sleep within these walls.
We are blessed for the gifts of this home.
So blessed be it.

Your Mission for this week:

Spend a day or evening with a close friend or companion. Reflect on the small things in life that you share in common. Share a glass of wine or a loaf of fresh baked bread. Make a list of 5 things that you simply adore about that person and hand it to them when it would be unexpected. The celestial voice is urging you to connect with those already around you. We often take our loved ones for granted and forget to show them how much we really do take and love them. This week your mission is ware your heart on your sleeve. Speak, show and feel love for all those around you. You have an abundance of friends and family who care deeply and love unconditionally. Embrace this abundance by acknowledging your current relationships.

Feel free to come back to the blog and post how you spent your day. Share your happenings with fellow readers. :-)
