Looking back & inward.

Looking back through memories that Facebook had to share with me, it dawned on me just how much growth that post presented in one little moment. As I examined that post, I wanted to share with you what made me reflect on so profoundly.

Teas for reducing stress and anxiety

One of my “things” that I do to help my body reduce stress and anxiety is that I drink teas, I also drink teas to help reduce inflammation, help with sleep, and with pain. Teas as I have talked about before are an amazing way to boost your health and promote healing. But that is not all they can do 😉 No, teas are a wonderful addition for any herbalist and for practices with divination, healing, and centering. The possibilities are endless with a good tea. I do make some teas that we offer to people, but only by request these days. However, I thought that I might take a moment and share some recipes with you, that you can add into your own practice or just your kitchen.

Para-Normal, The Hunt Continues: Part 2

Okay, the next part of the hunt takes place just a couple of miles down from where we were. Amy tells us all that we are headed to something call “Old Green Eyes” apparently this is also another common name or legend in many different places. But what do you expect from a teenager who was bored and wanted to do something different in a small town. This was also at a time when the internet was fairly new, I man for crying out loud we had MapQuest directions. If that does not date things I don’t know what does. So it is no surprise that our leader on this late night haunting hunt did not do her due diligence and research the locations or the legends before we joined her on this venture. Nor did any of us think to do it either, we were bored teenagers looking to do something different and out of the ordinary.

Para-Normal, Stupid Teenagers! Ghost Hunting. Part 1

Let me tell you about a bunch of kids bored in small town middle Georgia. There was not always a lot to do where we lived, and we tried our hardest to be good kids… well as good as we could be for the most part. So sometimes in our little ways of legal rebellion, we would try to figure out things to do that were pushing the limits. Like most teenagers do, I think it is a right of passage, you push to the limit and some exceed the limit more than they mean to. One night I get a call from a friend. [ Note names are changed] ” Hey, Amy found this cool list of urban legends in our area are you down…….” Totally didn’t let her finish her sentence before I answered. ” YES!!! Just tell us where.” Jasmine giggled and give us directions.
