This too shall pass !!!

What does this mean........ Everything is always in motion, therefore nothing remains the same. This should be a great relief for many as sometimes when we are stuck in the moment we feel there is no way out.

When something arrives in our experience we tent to loose some perspective and things can really feel overwhelming. If we can remember these four words, perspective immediately broadens and there is more clarity to whichever emotion the experience brings.

This too shall pass is just a friendly reminder that everything in you past is exactly that....passed. Nothing has ever remained the same and thank goodness for that. There will always be experiences and some will bring really joyful and comfortable experience and some will definitely bring unfamiliar and uncomfortable experiences. Either way eventually those feelings will pass and something else will replace them.

We are taught on the spiritual path to a degree to live in the moment. That the here and now is the only moments in our lives that really matter. The only moments that really make a difference.

When really down and out, confused, sad, hurt, ashamed, felling guilty or any other uncomfortable emotion, ask why ? What is it trying to show you ? What is it wanting you to see ? Where is it wanting you to make change ? We don't want these emotions to just pass. We want to learn from them first, as to move past those lessons so we move on to other things. If they were to just pass, and we did not learn, then we will find ourselves in a similar experience down the road, as things will keep repeating themselves until we learn what it is we need to learn.

Whether we learn or not, your experience and the emotions associated with it will pass, but seeing as we have to be in that experience anyway, why not learn from it as to move forward and on to new and different experiences.

Reminding yourself that this too shall pass will bring perspective to your situation, therefore you can focus your attention on what it's trying to teaching you. Everything will keep moving as energy does, it will pass and new will come.

So be grateful when when life feels comfortable, and understand when life feels uncomfortable it is loving trying to guide you but either way that too shall pass and you will feel better again. What is now, will not be......tomorrow, so make the most of it, because that too shall pass.

Smudging Herbs and how to use them

Smudging your home, property, space or self is an enjoyable experience. You are using your inner power to bring about your desires to have a positive, clear environment. Lighting the following herbs and using the smoke will not only clear away negative, old and stagnant energies, but can add various qualities to your space. While clearing your space just remember to hold in your heart what your desires are and believe your intentions will be honored. There is no wrong way to smudge, just light you herb, stay in your heart and hold your intention strong.

White Sage is one of the most common herbs, as it's main quality is, it's powerful ability to banish negativity in all forms. Whether negative thought forms, entities, emotions, or spirits, sage alone will more than likely be enough to accomplish what you desire. White sage is also a wisdom caller. It clears and opens your ability to receive and process wisdom.

Sweetgrass will clear a space but is known better for bringing in positive energies. It is commonly burnt after white sage has cleared negativity as sweetgrass calls in positive energies. Burning sweetgrass creates a space that is pleasing with a sense of positive support in the air.

Cedar is one of the most common and generally used plant. It will basically clear and balance a space. It's ability to neutralize all energies, creates a balanced environment. The fact it grows almost everywhere, makes it great to use in a pinch, when other herbs are unavailable.

Mugwort ( black sage ) is the number one herb for increasing psychic abilities, strengthening your intuition and producing vivid and colorful dreams. Mugwort burnt or even placed in a dream pillow will enhance you ability to see or hear through the thinning veil between our world and the spirit world. Mugwort is very protective as well. Great to use before creating a circle, ritual, meditation, channeling, or psychic reading.

Rosemary is great for protection. Using rosemary for the same reasons as mugwort's qualities, is a fantastic choice. Rituals, channeling or any time you are opening the line of communication to the spirit world, is a great time to use rosemary's protective qualities, as it will deter any negative energies within your space or communication lines.

Lavender is well known all over the world for it's calming effect. Burning lavender creates a peaceful inviting, calm space. Its soothing qualities induce a relaxing environment. Fantastic after a hard day. Will gently clear a space and leave it feeling lighter and enjoyable to be in.

Wormwood is well know for simply opening the line of communication to positive spirits. It is a very protective herb as well because of its powerful ability to call forth spirits. It's great protective qualities keep negative energies at way while you connect with positive, high vibrating energy. Burn a pinch and feel it's effects. WORMWOOD IS TOXIC, SO BURN A SMALL AMOUNT AND DO NOT INGEST OR DIRECTLY INHALE SMOKE.

This list does not include all herbs used as the list really is endless. These herbs are the more common ones with the qualities they carry. Herbs do so much. They are mother earths gift to us. They heal, mend, clear, banish, bring forth, fix, help, and they are everywhere !! It is in every ones best interest to learn a little more about herbs and how they can be used not only spritually but medicinally as many can be ingested, used topically and in creams, lotions and oils.

Smudging is a tool to aid you through your journey, it is always our responsibility to use them as a helper and not expect them to fix what we need to on the inside. Feel gratitude for the herbs as you burn them as they will always do their best to help you when you let them.

Happy smudging !!!!
