Intuitive skin care with weeds and herbs

Dearest readers,

I recently joined an on-line class called Awakening to Remember on Lisa Transcendence Brown’s site. Her insights are amazing, and the insight that mastery, self-love, health, and emotional balance are gained by remembering who we are as sovereign and powerful beings resonates with great truth for me.

Remembering means allowing all relevant parallel timelines (what are most often called past or future lives) to resurface so that all unfinished business, separation from the higher self, and emotional pain, fear, or discomfort be resolved in love. It also means acknowledging that the knowledge and information gleaned through hundreds or thousands of lifetimes of experience is still stored in our DNA, accessible through our intuition, heart, and body.

Our cellular structure does have memory, and we are all able to access what is needed in the present without necessarily having to go to school or receive specialized training. Dr. Sebi, a naturopath, never received any formal training, yet through diet, fasting, and supplements, he claimed to heal deadly diseases and disorders. Basically, by restoring the body to balance, the body heals itself. Dr. Sebi said that plants which have never been hybridized contain the essential minerals the body needs for energetic balance. He called these plants “electric foods”.

Weeds and certain herbs are probably the only plants we consume which have never been intentionally hybridized by humans. Because humanity has been farming for so many thousands of years, it would be difficult if not impossible to find a fruit or vegetable that is not a hybrid of some kind.

While I am not seeking to heal anyone other than myself at this point in time, I am very much interested in recovering my knowledge of plants and herbs through intuitive insight. When I look into my mind’s eye, more often than not, I see flowers or green plants. This inner vision indicates to me that I have a long and intimate connection with the botanical world. I believe that the more I ask myself specific questions, the more information will surface.

One question that I recently asked myself:

  • How can I heal the rosacea-like capillaries that appeared on my cheeks several years ago?

The answer that came to me is this:

  • Finely chop fresh basil leaves
  • Mix the chopped leaves in plain yoghurt
  • Add lemon juice to this mixture
  • Apply to affected areas

I found a web page with natural remedies for facial treatments broken capillaries/couperosis. This article indicates four different home remedies respectively using aloe vera, parsley, sage, and green tomatoes.

I decided to compare the nutrition profiles of these various recipes/ingredients to my intuitive recipe to see how they match up. On comparison, it appears that my intuitive recipe contains several of the vitamins and minerals that these home remedies also include B vitamins, vitamins C and K, potassium, and various antioxidants. I am planning on trying my own recipe as well as the those found in the referenced article and see what results I experience. I will post a follow-up in a few weeks.

aloe vera

  • Basil is an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese; a very good source of copper, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids such as beta-carotene), and vitamin C; and a good source of calcium, iron, folate, magnesium andomega-3 fatty acids. A quarter cup of lemon juice contains 31 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C and 3 percent of folate and 2 percent of potassium. Yoghurt, in addition to probiotics, contains calcium, potassium, and magnesium.

plain-yogurt

  • Aloe Vera contains many vitamins including A, C, E, folic acid, choline, B1, B2, B3 (niacin), B6. Aloe Vera is also one of the few plants that contains vitamin B12. Some of the 20 minerals found in Aloe vera include: calcium, magnesium, zinc, chromium,selenium, sodium, iron, potassium, copper, manganese.

parsley

  • Parsley is an excellent of vitamin K and vitamin C as well as a good source of vitamin A, folate and iron. Parsley’s volatile oil components include myristicin, limonene, eugenol and alpha-thujene. Its flavonoids include apiin, apigenin, crisoeriol and luteolin.

Sage

  • Sage is also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin A, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, and B vitamins such as folic acid, thiamin, pyridoxine, and riboflavin in much higher doses than the recommended daily requirements, plus healthy amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, thiamin, and copper.
  • A large green tomato contains 43 milligrams of vitamin C, providing half the daily requirement for men and nearly 60 percent for women. Green tomatoes also are rich in Vitamin K, B-Complex, protein, fiber, and Tomatine
    Green tomatoes are equally rich in antioxidants and B vitamins and may even help fight cancer.

    While herbs, fruits, and vegetables are full of phytonutrients and minerals derived from the Earth and nourished by the sun, it is important to consider where and how plants are grown, and by whom. The healing properties of plants are  increased when grown in a loving, high frequency environment.Horseweed-III.jpg

     

     

    What we consider to be weeds are some of the most nutritious and healing plants on Earth. Canadian horseweed is a common plant found growing between sidewalk cracks where I live. It is mainly known for its astringent properties. Plantains are excellent for healing surface wounds to the skin. Stinging nettle, paradoxically, can be used to treat eczema, acne, and other skin blemishes, and it is also a very good tonic for hair and dandruff treatment.

Intuition and healing plants

pin-bark oral-health-lips

Dearest readers,

It is not yet universally accepted that almost all humans on Earth have lived many lifetimes, not always on this planet. Many religions do accept this principle, and I feel that humans would have more peace of mind if this reality of the immortality of the soul became more widespread outside of religious belief. It would explain many mysteries. Because there is no time in higher dimensions, past, present, future “incarnation” memories remain imprinted in our DNA. We all have access intuitively to all information that we have experienced in any incarnation.

shamanic healing

For those of us who have been shamans, healers, hunters, people or beings who were intimate with nature, plant life, healing, and other dimensions during timelines which are outside of our current experience, we can delve into our memories and bring up invaluable information about healing.

It is a simple process, and with the resource of the internet at hand, we can check our intuitions against scientific and medical research as well as the knowledge of botanists and herbalists world-wide. It is possible that your intuitions may reveal information of which current humans are not aware.

botanicals

When I look inward and ask questions about “past” lives or “future” incarnations, I see many experiences as a Native American healer/shaman, in ancient Mexico, China, Mongolia, as well as in North America as a plant scientist 500 years from now. Sometimes I feel dubious about these visions, but the more I learn about reality and consciousness, the more I realize that humanity has not been told a shred of truth about our bodies, our minds, our hearts, our true abilities, our DNA, our history, current events, and our place in the universe.

Recently, I was experiencing intense nerve pain in my teeth on the right side of my face, which intermittently was radiating throughout my jaw. Since I don’t like to take pharmaceutical medications or pain killers, I decided to ask myself what natural substance I could take to relieve dental pain. After I asked myself the question, I sat quietly and waited for an answer. The answer came in the form of an image. A close-up image of the bark of a pine tree.

pine bark

I looked online to see if there was any information about pine bark to alleviate tooth/nerve pain. And, voilà, there I found that French maritime pine bark extract and its chemical component pycnogenol, while used for a variety of purposes (clarity of mind, heart health, circulatory issues) is also similar to aspirin without the negative side-effects on the liver and stomach. I also found a fascinating article about pine bark extract and how it can protect and enhance the life of dentine, the fleshy substance between the tooth enamel and root of the tooth. In this study, extracts from the Chinese red pine, pinus massoniana were used:

Natural News) Good news for the 80 percent of us who have resin tooth fillings: a new extract can delay our dentist trips by years. Pine tree bark extract is shown to alter the chemical structure of our teeth, strengthening them, and allowing our fillings to bind to them better. This is achieved due to the compounds in the extract that strengthen dentine, the tissue layer beneath the enamel of the teeth.

Dr. Guido Pauli of the University of Illinois at Chicago says the “weak link in the chain of bonding is the interface between the resin and the dentine. We have clear evidence that our intervention materials change this interface much to the better.” Dr. Pauli is referring to his recent tests that suggest the tree bark extracts can strengthen dentine by as much as ten times. Considering the current lifespan of a resin tooth filling, these new findings suggest a ten-year extension.

Charentes Maritimes

How did my inner self/intuition know about the wonders of pine bark? I believe the image I saw, which was a close-up of the bark was quite accurate. It did not show me the entire tree – just the bark. Which signifies that my intuition was quite clear in its intention of what it was attempting to show me. The next time you have an issue with your body or health, try this out to see if you possess intuitive knowledge or ancient experience with plants. You may or may not, depending on your soul experience in various incarnations.

Buddha log

If you feel that you are very close to nature and drawn to plants and gardening, and if you are interested in health and healing, there is a chance that this knowledge is lying dormant in your DNA. Ask yourself simple, pointed questions. Wait for the answers. They may come in different forms, depending on how your intuition works. There are many ways to access intuition. It can be through sound, words, automatic writing, images, short “video” like sequences, hearing a song or conversation, seeing printed materials, online videos or articles, or synchronistic events. Practice using your intuition to know yourself better and to hone your talents. It is a lot of fun, and you can use your age-old abilities to help others too!

Thinking in pictures: the original human language

Dearest readers,

At heart, I believe all humans feel as if our current reality does not reflect the way we are meant to live. We try so hard to remember who we are. We sense that we are connected to Earth and that our origins and history are not aligned with what we are taught at school, at home, in religious institutions. Our languages are imprecise, and no one seems to understand our true intentions. We feel lonely and disconnected from one another. We live inside our heads and although we are emotional beings, we don’t know what to do with our hearts.

puppy

Yesterday, I was out walking with my son and an artist friend, Diana. We came across a mom and her young son, who was walking an adorable 2 month old floppy black and white puppy on a blue leash. Everyone, including us, who saw the puppy just about melted with joy, approaching the group without hesitation to lavish the puppy with love. It is instinctive for humans to share love and to connect with others, but we cannot do this freely with other human beings, except perhaps with newborn infants. And even then, there are so many rules and boundaries, we know we must be very careful in how we share our love and light. And so we hold our feelings within. Animals allow us to express the instinctive loving nature that is our birthright as humans. Without animals, we would be even sicker and more out of balance than we are today.

How does the expression of emotion and language connect? I believe that humans are telepathic and empathic by nature. Some call our original language telempathy. Depending on our individual talents and proclivities, we all connect intuitively in different ways. Some of us are able to sense emotions in others. Some of us, when we tune into the energy of other humans, animal beings, and plants hear sound or voices. Yet others are more visual, while some may tune into odors, colors, or sound as patterns – much like geometric forms or mathematical formulas.

Everything is energy, and human beings communicate by sensing energy in different ways. The way our cultural or taught languages work is by creating patterns of sound and rhythm. We learn that a specific sound and corresponding written symbol represent a thing, a concept, a feeling, or a place. Collectively, as a culture, we create agreements that each sound pattern represents something that we all agree upon so that we can understand one another. But this is not the original human way of communicating. Our heart or light languages have been silenced in favor of these collective cultural agreements. In fact, all human beings, all animals, and all plants can communicate easily and effectively, regardless of nationality or place of birth.

light language

Celebrated author, animal behavioral expert Temple Grandin believes that animals think in pictures and that we can instinctively communicate with them by visualizing  and sensing what images they project through their own energetic field and consciousness. Conceptual thinking is non-linear, and humans as well as the natural world communicates in a non-linear manner. Images and feelings originate from different places in our consciousness. What we think of generally as the mind or linear thought could be equated with only a small part of our consciousness. The lower, linear, rational mind that creates what we know and what we generally use as language represents only a very small part of our mind. The higher mind is connected to the heart.

Light language is apparently an intuitive form of language that all human beings once shared and understood. It is a combination of hand gestures and sounds. It could be equated to what some Christians call “speaking in tongues”.  Many early languages were not codified or written. I have seen non-linear language in the form of mandalas and extraterrestrial languages encoded in circular form.

Flight-of-Swallows

The conceptual nature of language outside of time and space where there is no past, present, or future means that the language or means of communication of intent is always in the moment. Linear language is a lower level of communication, because time flows in a linear manner. Intuitive language and living on a higher frequency will bring humanity back to our original state, where our instinct to live from the heart, in the now are restored. When we quiet our minds and sit with ourselves, letting go of all of the “knowledge” that we are been taught and conditioned to believe as reality, we can begin to remember who we are, where we are from, and how we can love self and others once again. This pure form of communication with all beings is innate to being human. All we need to do is remember.
