New Earth is Here!

Over the past nearly two years we have all been through something the world has never seen and hopefully will never see again. So much has been brought to light. Our way of life has changed in a way that prevents it from ever going back to the way it was. During this time, I have gone through every emotion we, as humans, have. There was fear that turned to anger that led to rebellion that become dismissal that finally led me to the place I am now – peace. Love for life and my fellow man is now my battle cry. It has been a hard journey. We have all been shown things we didn’t believe could be real. We have learned things that we can’t forget. Now that we have experienced it all, a new reality is emerging. New Earth is here for those of us who are willing and able to experience it. The old world that was full of control and greed and power-hungry elites trying to keep us prisoners to their system is gone for me. It is no longer in my reality, therefore, it doesn’t exist for me anymore. It is a widely known fact that what we focus on becomes our reality. I am focusing on New Earth that was promised to us thousands and years ago. New Earth, where we are no longer driven by money and monetary pleasures is here. A place where we live in harmony with all beings. A place where we are focused on all of humanity, not just ourselves. We have come to learn that we are all connected to each other and to all living things on the planet. Our thoughts are powerful. We each have a choice each moment of our lives to choose which timeline we make our own. Rising above all the noise and hostility and anger and fear has been the greatest blessing of my life. Now, instead of striving every day to earn more and more money just to survive and just to turn over a large percentage of to the government, I now find solace in my home apothecary. Learning the ancient wisdom of the earth feeds my soul. Sharing my new found knowledge with other seekers brings great joy. I have been forever changed by what we have gone through so instead of hating the evil that resides in Old Earth for their attempts to defeat and control us, I thank them for illuminating the evil which then shed light on the new path. Only by seeing the evil are we able to decide to reject the old ways and move ourselves to a higher dimension.

The apothecary gives me so much peace. Becoming aligned with the energy of the plants of the earth has grounded me in joy. Using the blessings of the earth as God intended connects me to the higher source of divine energy. God gave us everything we needed to care for ourselves but we were robbed of the knowledge by the elites who only wanted to use us as their personal slaves. We lost touch with the earth and came to depend on their false gods of modern medicine and debt ruled banking systems. This was almost our downfall. Now a new horizon comes into view. We realize we have the power and the tools to heal ourselves, both body and soul. Now comes the time to utilize the gifts from God. With each day that passes, I find more ways to use the sacred plants to create perfect health for myself and those I love.

The powerful, healing elderberry, the nerve calming lemon balm and the immune building dandelion root are now my medicine. The vitamin D rich light from the sun, the lung clearing fresh air and the electrical connection of the ground strengthen me every day. No longer will I hide from the sun or keep my feet firmly on the concrete which separates me from the earth. I will revel in the glorious wisdom hidden in the plants and in the earth. I will seek out this wisdom day in and day out. No longer will I allow myself to be dependent on the government to provide for me. We will grow our own food and live off the land, We will be able to pull the clean, fresh water from deep in the ground. We will share our wisdom with all who seek. We are now the New Earth.

Phones Down, Heads Up, Eyes Wide Open

Good Morning friends and future friends! This has come into my soul over the past few days so strongly that I feel I have to record it. Because of what is going on around the world, I have become aware of how vast and deep the control factor is and has been for as long as I have been alive. Because it is something that we were born into and because it has progressively become worse and worse ever so gradually, we have not been able to see it. Now, I have become awake to the system as have millions of other souls here on planet earth. We truly have been slaves for hundreds, probably thousands, of years. Now, looking at every single aspect of our lives, I see clearly how many rules and procedures are in place to make sure we mere humans learn from birth to follow the rules, obey those we see as leaders and accept any and all limitations they put on us without question.

With the push for western medicine that started in 1913, the question of which came first, the chicken or the eggs comes to mind. Let’s just jump in somewhere so we can look at it. Before a child is born, the programming begins. The VAST majority of parents today would never ever consider going through a pregnancy without being lead by the hand by a “doctor”. Most would never ever consider giving birth outside of a hospital. Most would never ever consider raising a child without frequent “well child” checks. Most would never question that they have to produce a record of shots given to their child to go to school. As a result, our children grow up thinking that doctors are gods of some sort that must be listen to and followed without question. So the cycle is established and followed by the masses without question in a never ending assembly line. OMG!!! I gave up western medicine 5 years ago except in the case of life threatening trauma. Natural medicine was in place for tens of thousands of years until those who decided to enslave the people made it their goal to take over the world of medicine. If these self appointed gods can’t make profits from the ills of humanity, they will do everything in their power to eliminate the competition. Natural cures are now even made illegal because they can’t profit from something available from nature.

Beyond medicine, look at all the regulations put in place “for our own protection”. Most neighborhoods have lists of rules about how you can live in your own home. You can’t paint your home any color except those the housing gods have approved. You can’t change anything inside the home without using one of their approved contractors. You can’t park your cars in your own driveway if it doesn’t have their approval. Even though you own your home and pay taxes on the property every year, others are in charge of how you live in that home and what you do with that home. This all done to “protect home values”. Really? Or is it really just another way to program us to follow the rules and be good little pawns.

And then there are all the laws about the products and equipment we use. Every single aspect of our lives are regulated by the gods’ rules. We just blindly follow the rules without question. We are not able to use the baby bed past down to us by our parents for our own children because the bars are not exactly the right distance apart. It is illegal! We are not allowed to transport our children in a vehicle without following the god’s rules as to exactly how we do it. We are not allowed to have cars that are not equipped with the exact equipment the god’s tell us have to be in place. We have to register with the government at the time of birth so that they can issue us a number that we have to have in order to live our lives. We never ever think about not registering new born babies so that they can have the required birth certificate. We blindly sign our kids up with the government so they can have a social security number. Without that number, the child will not be allowed to live his or her own life.

We work at jobs to earn money to survive. Out of every paycheck, the gods collect their payment without us ever questioning it. We give up 1/3 of everything we earn to support the control the gods have over us. If our taxes were truly going to support a government that supported us over all else, it would be one thing but we have no idea where our money is going. We just blindly hand it over every single paycheck. The vast majority of our money is not going to serve we the people. It is going to the pockets of our jailers. They are rich beyond measure while we toil and struggle every day to make sure they are well paid.

Everyone who drives a car has to register that car every year for most. We have to have a license plate with a current registration marker on it or we can be arrested. Why? Why do we have to register our cars? So that the gods can have yet another way of tracking us? To make sure that we update our information with them in yet another way every year? If a police officer pulls up our license plate number, they instantly have all of our personal data at their finger tips. Have you thought about this? If an employer asks for your driver’s license number, they have access to all of our driving records for the past 20 or more years. Is this really any business of a potential employer? Why do we so readily provide all of this data to so many different people. Do you see the pattern of enslavement? When we do get the job, we have to provide our government registration numbers so that again, the government gods can track where we work, how much we work, how much we earn and how much they can take from us. Is this really any business of the government gods?

Now our banking is being tracked like never before. The banking gods have made it so convenient for us to carry little plastic cards with us that are tied directly to our bank accounts. Therefore, every single time we make a purchase, the banking gods and the government gods can track us. They know what we are buying, where we are buying it, how often we are buying it, etc. Is it really any of their business how much bread and milk we buy? Then, if we attempt to make a purchase they find outside our usual habits, they have the power to shut down our ability to make that purchase. Our cards can be locked in half a hot second. They say this is to protect us from fraud and I am sure this is the case to some degree, however, most of the time it is not. So, if our cards are so susceptible to fraud, why don’t they fix the system? Because, as long as they convince us they are looking out for our best interest, they can continue to track our every move. It’s insane!!

Let’s look at the insurance gods, starting with medical insurance. How is it even possible that an insurance company has the right to dictate to us and to our doctors what medical procedures we are allowed to have? For example, a hip replacement surgery will fix hip pain coming from a deteriorating hip joint that naturally comes with wear and tear and age. Hip pain usually starts 5 years before the insurance company will allow you to have a hip replacement surgery. Over the course of that 5 years, doctors will tell you to take more and more pain medication so that you can still participate in life. The pain continues to limit our ability to move about so the person will naturally take a seat on the sofa and turn on the television or computer. For five years, they become more and more sedentary to the point their health has deteriorated on all fronts. Then they will allow you to have the surgery. So, instead of taking a 60 year old, healthy, active person and doing the surgery in the beginning, they choose to take a 65 year old person who has been sitting for 5 years, had gained a lot of weight and has had muscle and general health decrease for the entire time. Which person would have the better surgery result? I think it is clear to see! I personally had this happen to me. The doctor informed me that my pain was from a deteriorating joint but I wouldn’t qualify for surgery until the joint was bone on bone because the insurance company would not approve it. When I asked if there was anything I could do to improve the joint, I was informed that there was nothing that could be done to reverse it and it would continue to get worse over time. Take as much liver and kidney damaging pain relievers as possible to relieve the pain and go sit down for a few years. Then we will talk again. Unbelievable!!

The saddest part of all of this is that we have just allowed it to happen to us without even questioning it. In many cases, we have been thankful that they are watching out for us. I am calling BS on all of it!! It is time to get out of prison and find our souls again.

This is nothing new. If we look back to biblical times, we see one group of people enslaving another group of people so the slaves could do all the work for the ruling gods. Who gave the ruling gods these positions of power? How have the ruling families around the world been in power for so long and who put them there in the first place? Who is controlling this matrix and how do we get out? I have done a lot of research and know some answers, but the ruling gods will not give up the slaves without a fight. We are in the fight right now. What we don’t see is that this is a spiritual war being fought in the spiritual realm. We that are here on the ground don’t realize we are in a war because nothing is getting blown up. The blow up will come and it is coming soon! Let’s pray we win and are set free from this horrible matrix once and for all.

Thanks for being here. Please like, subscribe and share so that we can get the message out to all who are still sleeping. This is the Great Awakening and we are the soldiers in this war.

Make Your Own Sour Dough Bread! Start With This Sour Dough Bread Starter!

Greetings my friends! It is such a blessing to have you with me today! Our world continues to get stranger by the day. It has become very evident that there may come a time in the near future when things like going to the grocery becomes nearly impossible. As the world situation has progressed, it has become increasing clear that if we are not able to provide for ourselves, we may not like what happens to us.

One of the easiest and most useful things you can do to start your self sufficiency journey is to learn to make sour dough bread starter. It takes a week to 10 days or so to get the starter to a point where you can start using it, but after that, it just continues to be useful almost indefinitely. With a productive starter, the recipes that use the starter are amazingly diverse. With a few simple pantry staples, you can provide your family with fresh baked breads and rolls of all types. I realize we don’t live by bread alone, but if you are finding it hard to purchase groceries, it will keep bellies full and energy up during hard times.

We will begin the starter process today and give you the instructions for a full week. I will be producing a video in a few weeks on the entire process from beginning to end. I will also be showng different recipes for the starter over the coming months. If nothing else, providing fresh, homemade bread will be a delight to you, your family and your friends. With the Holidays just around the corner, you can surprise your guests with a culinary delight you made yourself for all those holiday dinners and pitch ins. As we work our way through this process, you will see that if you wish to share your starter with others, there will be ample opportunities.

So, how does it work? The basic concept behind sour dough starter is that your mixture will start to attracted and feed natural yeast and good bacteria. These elements will grow as you continue to feed the mixture. When it is fully developed, it will contain enough natural yeast and bacteria to make your bread rise when you use it in a recipe. It is the good bacteria that will give your starter and your finished products that slightly sour twang you are looking for. It is a combination of the yeast and bacteria that will cause your bread to rise as both will produce carbon dioxide during the baking process increasing the height.

The most important parts are to use the same amounts of water and flour at the start and for all the feedings that follow. It is important that you use a clean jar every time you discard a portion of the starter and feed it more. The starter will produce acid as it comes along. This acid will kill off any harmful bacteria that comes along so it is unlikely that your starter will spoil. If you notice any kind of pink or orange colored growth, this indicates mold and the starter should be discarded and started again.

The water you use is vitally important. If you are on city water, the added chlorine will kill the active yeast and render your starter a dud. It is best to use bottled water in these cases or you can boil and cool the water to eliminate any chorine. OK! Let’s get started!

First, start with a clean, sterilized jar with a loose fitting lid or cheesecloth cover. NOTE: Use a jar or container that is large enough to double the beginning measure plus room for the mixture to double in size after feedings as things progress.

Day 1: Mix 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of water. Note: many people are very very fussy about this part. They insist on using a scale to measure exactly the same weight of water to the exact same weight of flour. If you don’t have this equipment, using equal measures of each has worked well for me in the past and is the method I still use. If you don’t get the results you want, you can try using the scale method. It is important to use equal measures all along the way. After you have mixed your flour and water, cover your jar loosely so that any gases that form are allowed to escape. Leave the starter in a room temperature (70 – 75 degrees) area for 24 hours.

Day 2: Add 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of water and mix thoroughly. Cover loosely and leave at room temperature for another 24 hours.

Day 3: REMOVE 1/2 of the starter. You can either use the discarded portion in another jar and continue with 2 jars, you can pass it along to a friend with instructions to keep it going or you can discard it. Add 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of flour to the remaining starter and mix well. Cover loosely and leave at room temperature for another 24 hours.

Day 4 through Day 10. Repeat day 3 process each day until the starter starts to smell like yeast bread and is fermenting nicely. You can check to see if your starter is ready to use by observing it to see if it doubles in size within 2-3 hours after you feed it.

When it is ready to use, you are ready to bake! If you are not ready to bake, you can refrigerate your started until you are ready. If you want to keep it going for a long time, it is best to feed it by repeating step 3 once a month or so.

If your starter is refrigerated and you want to use it, take it out of the refrigerator 3 days before you want to bake. When the starter is at room temperature, feed it at room temperature for 2 days. It will be refreshed and ready to go on the third day.

When you have taken out whatever amount you need for your recipe, reserve 1 cup of the starter and feed it again before returning it to the refrigerator.

AS I mentioned, we will be using this started over the next few months so stay tuned! Thanks so much for being here. If this has be helpful to you or if you know someone who might find this helpful, please like, subscribe and share! I look forward to being with you again next time when we make our skin healing and itch stopping lotion! Hope to see you there!

How To Make Your Own Bug Juice

Insect Repellant with Essential Oils.

Greetings friends! It is such a blessing to me that you have chosen to be here with me today. I know there are a million different things you could choose to be doing with your time. The fact that you are here with me means the world to me. I am so grateful!

Today we are going to be in the apothecary making what I loving refer to as Bug Juice. The name goes back to a book my oldest daughter had when she was a little girl. It talked about Bug Juice and Honey. The name makes me smile with happy memories.

We live is a tropical location with SO many biting insects! Unfortunately I am highly allergic to these bites and tend to attract these hateful insects like a magnet to metal. For many months I used the commercial sprays because I felt like I had to have something professionally made and formulated in order for it to be effective. Then came the fateful evening when I found myself scratching in agony from the bites and I had run out of the commercial itch relief cream I normally used. I did not want to go out late in the evening to buy something so I went to my stash of essential oils and started digging into to ones with the best itch relief properties. Within a few minutes I had gathered 4 different oils that I mixed into a bottle of regular moisturizing lotion I already had. I didn’t really expect it to work very well. This is before I really learned how extraordinary and powerful essential oils are. Up to this point I had mainly used them in my diffuser for the amazing scents they produced. Almost immediately – I mean within 30 seconds – of applying the lotion, the itch was gone! Completely gone! It was such a relief! At first I suspected the relief would be short lived, but I went to bed and remained itch free all night. That was the moment of my awakening to the power of essential oils. I decided to try to formulate an insect repellant that would work as magically as the itch lotion did. Again, the results were amazing! I have used it every day since formulating this recipe and have been bite free ever since! On the rare occasion when I forgot to apply and did get a bite, the itch lotion stopped the itch and stopped the bite from getting worse. The bites healed up almost immediately!

Commercial insect repellants have such harmful chemicals in them! Plus, most contain aerosols which are also harmful. These are not products you want to use on yourself or your children! Essential oils are potent and full of healthful compounds. The difference is like night and day! Many people, myself included, believe Deet to be harmful to humans and to the environment. There are studies put out by government agencies that say it is safe. There are also numerous reports that say it is not safe. Please do your own research and come to your own conclusion. After what the population of this world has been through the past nearly 2 years, I personally don’t trust anything that comes out of the government agencies. In fact, I consider these organizations to be partners with our big drug companies and big healthcare organizations who only make money if they keep us as sick as possible for as long as possible. Just my opinion, please do your own research.

Back to the task at hand – making my insect repelling Bug Juice. We will make the itch relief and skin healing lotion another day. To make the lotion, start with a 16 once bottle of your favorite moisturizing lotion. Brand does not matter. Choose a lotion that has a thicker consistency because it will be thinned out with the addition of the oils. I purchase a lotion base in bulk because I make so much of it but this is not necessary. Dump the lotion out of the bottle into a bowl, add the oils and mix with a whisk until completely mixed together. I know it seems to make sense to just add the oils to the top of the bottle and shake, but your end results will not be as good. Mixing the oils into the lotion base takes time. If you don’t mix it thoroughly enough, the oils will separate out which is not what you want. Even though essential oils are amazingly safe, most are too potent to apply directly to the skin in some people. If this is your first time working with essential oils, I want your end result to be perfect. The oils you will use are as follows:

  1. Citronella
  2. Lavender
  3. Lemongrass
  4. Peppermint

You can customize the strength of your lotion to suit your needs. I use about 3/4 of a Tablespoon of each oil for a large bottle of lotion. Using 1/2 a Tablespoon will be sufficient for most people but because I am so attractive to the little biters, I make mine a little stronger.

Essential oils seem like they are very expensive but when you consider how much of the herb or how many flowers are required to make the oils and how very potent they are, the cost is very reasonable. Make sure you are using high quality oils and not fragrance oils. You want therapeutic quality, pure oils. There are some very well known oil companies out there that produce high quality products; however, most are MLM companies so for each oil you purchase you are paying the company, the person selling them as well as the people who sponsored them. There are less expensive ways to purchase the oils and still get high quality products. Again, do your research and compare products before you purchase. Because I use oils so much, I am able to purchase larger quantities for less money and then decant them into smaller bottles. Just a thought.

Once you have the lotion base and the oils thoroughly mixed, use a funnel to put the lotion back in the bottle. Depending on how full the original bottle was, you will likely have a little bit extra. This is nice to have with you in a purse or backpack for emergency use. Any small bottle with a tight fitting lid will work such as an empty, clean, hand sanitizer bottle. Do make sure you clean the bottle very well to get all the alcohol residue out of the bottle before putting your Bug Juice in it.

This lotion not only repels insects, it moisturizes your skin with every application. It will have a SLIGHT oily feeling because you are adding oils. I have not experienced any oil stains on my clothing or chair covers. I love how soft it makes my skin feel and I feel good knowing I am using a completely safe product. As with any product, a very few people might find they are allergic to the oils. I have never heard of it but I am sure it is possible. If you have any type of reaction to the lotion, just stop using and pass it on to someone who might find it beneficial.

Thank you so much for being here today. If you have questions, please ask in the comment section and I will get back to you. If this was helpful to you or you know someone who might find it helpful, please like, subscribe and share! Next time we get together, I will be showing and explaining the progress on the vintage wedding gown restyle. Hope to see you there!

Dumplings With Herbs and Homemade Alfredo Sauce – Yum Yum!!

Oh My Goodness! We are going to splurge all over the place today with some amazing comfort food! We are going to make fresh dumplings with thyme, parsley and oregano added. We are going to set these amazing dumplings afloat in a sea of decadent, homemade, Alfredo sauce full of buttery garlic goodness and topped with additional oregano. This is a meal in itself; however, if you want to add a protein, go right ahead! Grilled chicken, shrimp, salmon or even meatballs just adds to the depth of deliciousness this dish offers you and whoever you choose to share it with. Ready? Let’s go on a gastro journey to soothe your soul.

Before we get to the recipes, let’s look at the health benefits of the herbs we are going to use today. It is amazing that the seasonings we use everyday offer so many benefits for what ails us!

Garlic:

  1. Reduces cholesterol
  2. Reduces heart attack risk
  3. Stimulates the immune system
  4. Reduces blood pressure
  5. Is anti-parasitic

Thyme:

  1. Ideal for deep seated chest infections
  2. Relieves digestive distress
  3. Is anti-bacterial
  4. Is anti-fungal

Oregano:

  1. Heals coughs
  2. Soothes asthma
  3. Helps with diarrhea
  4. Calms a stomach ache
  5. Aids digestion
  6. Is anti-inflammatory

Parsley

  1. Loaded with vitamins and minerals
  2. Supports healthy digestion
  3. Has a diuretic effect
  4. Protects against osteoporosis
  5. Gives you fresh breath

Making dumplings is seriously one of the simplest things you can do. There is nothing much to it but the end results are fantastic! The recipe we are going to use today is as follows:

1.5 cups of all purpose flour

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1 teaspoon dried oregano

3 tablespoons of butter

3/4 cup of milk (or milk substitute. I will be using almond milk as cows milk does not agree with me.)

Step 1

In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, thyme, parsley and oregano.

Step 2

Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Step 3

Gradually add the milk, using just enough to form a thick batter.

Step 4

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough into simmering soup or stew. We are using homemade chicken broth. Cover and allow to cook for 15 minutes.

Step 5

When the dumplings are cooked through, drain them in a strainer so they can be added to the fresh Alfredo sauce!

For our Fresh Alfredo Sauce, the recipe is as follows:

1 cup butter

1.5 tablespoons of minced garlic

3 tablespoon of all-purpose flour

1 quart of heavy cream

8 ounces freshly shredded Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon of oregano

Step 1

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and stir until the garlic is fragrant but not browned.

Step 2

Stir in the flour and stir until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3

Whisk in the heavy cream and whisk constantly until the mixture is hot and slightly thickened. This will take about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Gradually stir in the Parmesan cheese. Do this slowly and with great presence. Stir until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth. This will take about 20 to 30 minutes.

When the sauce is complete, gently stir in the dumplings until well coated. Sprinkle some fresh parsley over the top if you so desire. Enjoy!!!

The number one secret to making amazing Alfredo sauce is to be totally present during the whole process. If you are rushed or feel like you are in a huge hurry, don’t make this sauce. If you are feeling anxiety, making this sauce can be very therapeutic. There is a lot of slow, steady stirring as you bring this sauce to the finished product. Slowing down and breathing to the rhythem of the slow stirring can be very effective in bringing down your anxiety level. Just breathing and being present while preparing food for yourself and those you love will bring such a sense of peace to your life. As you are stirring, think deeply about how you are adding love to the dish and how you are intending it to bring peace and harmony to the table. So many times in our hurry up world, we tell ourselves we don’t have time to cook food from scratch. I’m asking you to consider that maybe you don’t have time to not cook fresh food from scratch.

Thanks so much for being here today. Join me again on Thursday. We are going to prepare an insect repellant lotion that contains only health giving essential oils in a chemical free lotion base. The insect repellants you buy in the store are stuffed full of harmful chemicals and biting insects can carry illness and disease. Finding a healthy way to repel these insects is the ultimate goal.

Upcycled Wedding Dress – Something New From Something Old.

Good Morning Friends!! As promised, today we are going to start up cycling this fabulous, vintage wedding dress that was lovingly gifted to me by a very dear friend. This dress was her mother’s hand made dress from 1950. Having it in her closet was making her feel sad. She knew I would be able to turn it into something beautiful for someone else to enjoy. I am so passionate about this project for so many reasons! First, a little back story. I owned and operated a successful bridal boutique for 15 years. I sold gorgeous, new wedding dresses from all over the world. Over the years I watched the prices of dresses rise at an unbelievable rate. By the time I sold the business, I was starting to feel that the amount of money our brides were paying for weddings as a whole was getting totally out of control! These brides were under such pressure to have ALL the things in their weddings to make sure their peers would think they did it right. And let me say, the number of “requirements” was unbelievable! When my husband and I got married everything was so much simpler!!! and cheaper!

Lately, as we have been navigating this turbulent time in our history, I have started seeing things so much more clearly. We have been held hostage in a matrix for so long that we are not even aware that it exists! We are pummeled from all sides with pressure to be consumers and to consume more and more and more. The more money we spend, the richer our captors become. To be able to purchase all the things we have been lead to believe that we need to keep up with modern society, we have to work harder and harder. The more we work, the more taxes are collected from our paychecks which again adds to the coffers of our captors. As our unnatural desire for all the material possessions constantly increases, we have to work more and more hours. Now we have to have two incomes and we are still strapped all the time. As the feelings of being strapped get stronger and stronger, the more anxiety and fear we start experiencing. It is the most vicious circle imaginable! And we have been programmed to believe this is how we have to live our lives!!! It is all a lie!!!!

Another problem with our massive consumer habits is the amount of trash we are accumulating! We throw out an unbelievable amount of clothing every year. Sometimes we donate our unwanted clothing, which is a help, but the amount of fabric that is discarded every single year could easily clothe every single one of us! Now, I am not saying that I want to wear clothing that is outdated, but, for me, I have started a crusade to make all the things I need from recycled fabrics. For the whole year of 2022 I vow not to purchase any “new” fabric items. I will go to the donation centers and gather used fabrics to create what I want or need. I can guarantee you that the things I create will be amazing!!!!

I realize that sewing has become a lost art. This is another tool the ones who control the matrix have used against us. They have made it part of the program to have us choose not to learn the old skills that everyone had just a couple of generations ago. They have made it seem normal for us to not be able to take care of ourselves. We no longer know how to grow food, preserve food, make clothing or use herbal medicines! All we know how to do it to buy these things – which has led us down the path to more and more consumerism. Is this making any sense to anyone? The more we have to buy, the more money we have to make. Then we are back in the loop. We have to work more and more hours taking us away from our homes and our families to work for companies that can replace us at the drop of a hat! We have zero security that our jobs will be there for us when we need them! If we lose our jobs, we don’t have the skills needed to survive with less. Do you see the vicious circle? Do you see how dependent we have become on others to provide what we need to survive? Now is the time to start reclaiming our freedom from consumerism.

OK, time for me to get off of my soapbox and on to getting this vintage gown turned into something new and wonderful for less than $50.00 in supplies! This is just the first of many wedding gowns we are going to restyle on this channel. Wedding gowns are what I know and what I love so we are going to up cycle many of them. I don’t know who they will end up being for, but I feel confident the universe will bring the right bride to each dress we do.

Here are the quick sketches of what I have planned for this gown. It will be a two piece dress with just a thin strip of tummy showing. The beading at the top will be removed as it has become damaged over the years. I will also remove the sheer mesh at the top. The back will be opened up and will have a lace up, corset back added for a bit of that medieval look I love so much. Along the neckline Kevin and I will be pouring small, resin buttons containing tiny little flowers to include the treasures that nature provides. These decorative buttons will be added at 5 points along the top of the bodice and possibly down the corset back. The skirt will be turned into a fit and flare style skirt with a multi tiered lace insert down the back from the top of the thigh to the bottom. The top of the skirt will also be fitted with a corset closure. Before I insert the lace tiers in the back, I will be dip dying the different layers in an ombre of earthy greens. Also before I insert the lace tiers I will be dip dying the entire skirt and the lower half of the sleeves in a lighter shade of the earthy green. It will gradually fade from the ivory at the top to just the slightest tint of green on to a finished medium green at the very bottom. I have choses to use the little bits of nature in the buttons and the earthy green as I want to honor the earth and all she has provided for us through the entire time life has existed on this planet.

I know that one person deciding not to buy clothes for a year is not going to save the planet. Frankly, nothing we can do is going to save the planet. She will eventually take care of herself even if that means purging us from her surface. Reclaiming my personal freedom and showing others that it can be done might just save us from slipping further into the matrix. We might reclaim just a bit of the freedom we use to have.

Thanks so much for being here! Monday we will be back in the kitchen making herb dumplings and fresh Alfredo sauce. Next Saturday, when we get back to this wedding dress, we will be completing the deconstruction and getting the dress ready to put back together! I would love for you to join our tribe by liking and subscribing. Please share these posts with anyone you think might enjoy them.

Thanks again for being here and have a magical day!

Golden Honey Infused With Herbs – Fabulous!

Good Morning Friends! Our journey begins today. We are going to be creating 3 different types of herb infused honey. Two of these will be for flavor and one will be for medicinal use. The goal during this brief few minutes of time, we all leave behind the stress of our lives right now and feel the magic of honey. Our lives are out of control! Just for a few minutes, lets totally focus on the golden beauty of honey and contemplate how the magic of herbs can both add flavor to our foods as well as heal what ails us.

Here is your first little tidbit to investigate on your own. Herbal medicine has been around for over 10,000 years and was the only medicine available during that time. Herbal medicine is divine. Our beginnings were in a garden where the earth provided everything we needed to survive. Main Stream Medicine or scientific medicine has only been around for a little over 100 years. Those who promoted this form of medicine saw the opportunity to make obscene amounts of money from this new form of medicine when they were not able to profit from herbal medicine. They started the campaign to eliminate herbal medicine and to make people believe it was not real and only witches and snake oil salesmen would ever pursue herbal medicine when scientific medicine was available. I will leave links below so you can do your own research.

Anyway, we are going to make orange peel honey, hot pepper honey, and lemon ginger honey. Just think of all the beautiful flowers that go into making honey. Bees fly all across the landscape gathering the nectar of the flowers to create a perfect super food. Honey has over 600 health giving phytonutrients in it! Some of the benefits of eating honey are:

  1. Honey helps regulate blood sugar
  2. Honey is anti-bacterial
  3. Honey is anti-fungal
  4. Honey is a natural probiotic
  5. Honey soothes coughs
  6. Honey reduces ulcers
  7. Honey helps heal wounds

Just two important points to remember about honey. It should not be given to infants under 1 year old and it should not be heated above 108 F. Above this temperature the honey is broken down into a glue like substance that is very hard to digest.

To make all of these infused honeys, we are going to add dried herbs to the honey, seal it up and let it sit for at least 2 weeks, preferably a month. After it has time to absorb all the herbal goodness, we will strain out all the herbs and decant our infused honey! For the orange peel honey we add several strips of dehydrated orange slices, peel and all, to a sterilized jar and cover with a mild to medium flavored honey. I have chosen Palmetto honey which I purchased from a local producer at our farmers market because it is produced locally in our area and has the desired mild flavor. If you choose a very strong flavored honey, it will overpower the subtle flavors of the herbs. The health benefits will remain but the flavor will not be as detectable. A few of the health benefits of orange peel are vitamin C levels that exceed that of the fruit, it has been said to help ward off cancer, improve lung health and aids in diabetes treatments. We want to make sure that we include as much of the dried peel as possible while still completely covering with the honey. I am using dried elements because sometimes adding anything that contains water can cause the growth of unhealthy things we don’t want in our final product.

For our hot pepper honey, I have dehydrated some of our locally grown hot peppers including the seeds. Again, we add enough of the dried peppers to loosely fill the jar while still be completely covered with the honey. When this is done infusing, there is nothing quite like the combination of hot and sweet. One of my favorite things to do with this mixture is to pour a good amount over the top of a block of cream cheese and use as a spread for crackers! It is SO good! Hot peppers also offer us a great deal of health benefits. Capsaicin is the most healthful element in hot peppers. It offers a wonderful anti-inflammatory effect which helps in pain relief. Hot peppers are also high in vitamin A, C and K. They are powerful antioxidants and have been reported to help ward off cancer.

Last but not least is our super therapeutic Lemon Ginger Honey. Again, we have dehydrated our lemons and the fresh ginger root. Loosely fill the jars with the dried lemons and ginger and cover completely. This blend is fabulous as a sweetener for any kind of tea, but it is also the most potent herbal medicine in our group of infused honey products. Just look at the health benefits of Ginger alone!

  1. Ginger is an anti- inflammatory
  2. Ginger is an immune booster
  3. Ginger helps with colds and flu
  4. Ginger helps with nausea and morning sickness
  5. Ginger helps with indigestion
  6. Ginger helps with pain
  7. Ginger helps maintain a healthy cholesterol level
  8. Ginger helps protect again Alzheimers Disease

Ginger is a powerful herbal medicine. All of these benefits have been well documented and the information is readily available to any who wish to search for it. The health benefits of lemons are almost as impressive.

  1. Lemons boost the immune system
  2. Lemons reduce phlem
  3. Lemons support heart health
  4. Lemons protect again anemia
  5. Lemons aid in preventing kidney stones

This is a honey that is powerful medicine. It can be taken in 1/2 tsp servings several times a day during illness or it can also be used to sweeten tea. Either way offers the same therapeutic benefits without the harsh side effects of man made medications. God’s medicine is far superior to anything created in a laboratory!

Look how beautiful these jars of honey are!!! We are going to leave them in this window space for the next few weeks. When they are ready, we will come back to them and I will show you how to strain them and decant them for storage. While we wait, I hope you will take time every day to relax with a warm cup of tea sweetened with pure honey and contemplate how many wonderful things we have to be grateful for.

Because herbal medicines have been wrongly portrayed as somehow harmful and those who tell others about them as criminals, I am required by law to tell you I am not a medical doctor, I am not diagnosing any illness or disease and I am not prescribing any herbal medicines to cure any illness or disease. The information in this article is for your general knowledge only. Please do your own research.

Please share this with any of your friends and family who might be feeling a little under the weather or feeling the effects of stress. We would love for you to like and subscribe to our channel and become part of our tribe. Join us on Saturday when we start upcycling a beautiful vintage wedding dress. The design drawings are done and we are ready to create something new from something old. Until then, stay prepared my friends.

Welcome To Our New Journey

We can all agree we are living in a completely different world than we were just a couple of years ago. The truth is, our world and our lives have changed forever. Whether that change is for the good or for the bad is still to be seen. The Great War between good and evil wages all around us as we speak even though it is a different type of war than we have ever experienced before. The Great Books assure us that Good triumphs over Evil. I pray daily that this is the truth.

My story starts a VERY long time ago. I have walked this earth for just over 6 decades. Way, way back in time, when I was just about 4 or 5 years old, I had a series of visits from someone beyond this realm. I call the visitor God but please use whatever name you identify with. I have shared my story with a very few select people because, as you can imagine, one doesn’t just go around telling everyone, “Hey, God gave me some messages!”. Saying things like that is a quick way to cause people to run away and whisper behind your back.

Times have definitely changed and what I was told way back then appears to be coming true so I have to do the job I was sent here to do. That job is to help others through this challenging time and on to a New Earth. As a young child, the message I received about these times was that during the final days when others would leave the earth plane to be removed from the horrors of the end days, I would be left behind to lead others through until the final promise was kept. Being raised in a Christian home, to me this meant I would be staying behind when the Rapture happened. This horrible thought has plagued me my whole life. In fact, actually experiencing the Rapture and finding myself still on Planet Earth has been my biggest fear. Anytime I am out with other people and I turn around to find they they have wandered away, my very first thought is that it happened and I am still here. This has provided great fun for those who knew my secret. Many false Raptures have happened for me at the hands of those very close to me.

Anyway, on with the story. Knowing that I would be left behind, my whole adult life revolved around being self sufficient, growing food, making clothes, learning herbal medicines and so on. I married the man of my dreams almost 38 years ago and he gladly went along with living the life of a survivalist. He cut wood for our wood stove and wood cook stove. He raised the most fabulous gardens imaginable so that I could preserve the bounty. We raised goats and chickens, a beef calf and a few pigs every year. We had fresh eggs every day, we made goat milk cheese and goat mild soap, we had freezers full of farm raised meats, our pantries were overflowing with home canned foods and we lived a happy, self sustaining lifestyle even though we both had outside jobs.

When Y2K became a big deal, I thought my time had finally come but, as we all know, that “end of the world as we know it” event passed with barely a blip. Then we experienced 9-11. As horrific as that was, life soon returned to a version of new normal that did not result in the end of the world. Then came the 2012 End of the Maya Calendar scare. I really thought this was the big one, but again, nothing happened. As my husband, Kevin, and I started getting towards retirement age, I finally decided my early messages were just the imaginative creations of a little girl’s mind. We decided to sell everything we owned including our businesses and retire to someplace warm. In August of 2019 we completed this task. We moved to a house on a small lot in a large neighborhood on a body of water where the palm trees grow all year round and we considered ourselves retired. By January of 2020, just 5 months after our move – we started hearing rumors of some kind of virus. Since that time our entire world has changed. It has turned into the scariest place I can think of. Every day tyranny raises its ugly head a little more. Never in my wildest dreams did I think there would come a day when we were forced to stay in our homes at the risk of being arrested. Rumors of “re-education campus are swirling around like crazy along with forced, experimental medical procedures that are threatening our ability to provide for our families. Because this is a world-wide event and because there appears to be no end in sight, only more slavery, it has become clear to me that these are in fact the days I was sent here for.

Now that the time is upon us, we find ourselves in a location with no way to provide food for ourselves other than to go to the grocery. We find ourselves unable to get medical care unless we take the experimental medical procedure. We find ourselves forbidden to live lives as free people. So, now is the time for me to accept the gauntlet that God threw down for me as a 4 year old child.

On this channel, I will teach others the old ways of survival and I will teach them the ways of Earth Medicine. We will go on the journey of using less, throwing away less and reusing everything possible. We will cook, prepare potions, make medicines, upcycle clothes and furniture, hand make gifts and learn to cherish the Earth. In doing so, we will expose evil along the way. I hope you will become a part of our tribe. Please subscribe to our channel and share it with anyone you know who might need to learn the skills we will be teaching. The time in now. Soon it will be too late.

Thanks for being here on the Winter Solstice 2021. Join me on Thursday for preparing herbal concoctions and Saturday when we start up cycling a vintage wedding gown. Don’t forget to like and subscribe! Until next time, be prepared my friends.

How Do You See Yourself? How Do Other People See You? Why Do You Care?

Hello my friends! Ahhh – so many questions today! This is not the blog post I had planned for today but one must listen to the calling of inner wisdom, that wee small voice in the back of the mind, that guides us.

So, the first question is “How Do You See Yourself?” If I put out a poll to 1000 people and those people were all 100% honest, the results would be that most people, especially women, see themselves in some sort of negative way. “I’m too fat. I’m too skinny. I’m too tall. I’m too short. I have an ugly nose. I have an ugly body. I’m socially awkward. I’m a nerd that nobody likes. I’m so weird nobody could ever love me. I’m not smart enough to ever be successful.” And on and on and on! Why? Why do we do this to ourselves? Believe me, I have done it to myself my whole life. I always saw myself as an awkward, oddball, misfit who somehow didn’t deserve to be successful in life even though I owned my own business that was hugely successful. No matter how successful the business became, I always thought it wasn’t good enough which translated to I wasn’t good enough. Oh, I put up the good front. I acted self confident and happy about things but inside was a different story. I felt like I had this beautiful, creative, joyful soul deep inside me that had been beaten into submission through the life experiences we all go through. You know, the failed tests, the undone homework, the failed relationships, the lost jobs, the cruel comments from others, the embarrassing mistakes that make you want to die, the financial failures, etc. These are the things we fixate on our whole lives instead of focusing on all the successes we have had in life. We forget about the awards we won, the people we helped, the children we shaped, the unbelievable hardships we overcame. Believe me, I understand!

But then something miraculous happened. One of the two or three people in the world who knows me all the way to my soul gave me a birthday card. On the front of the card was a picture of the most adorable, joyful, little girl I had ever seen. Then my friend said to me, “that picture is SO YOU!” My friend of 45 years who has seen me through the good, the bad and the ugly, didn’t see the weird, broken, misfit me that I saw. In her eyes, I was this joyful child on the card! At that instant, something deep inside me shifted. She didn’t see the failed human me, she saw my soul. My soul awakened and felt safe to come to the surface. Then I had to ask myself a question. If she saw me in this way, was it possible that others in my life saw me differently than I saw myself? After a lifetime of assuming others saw me as the awkward, oddball, misfit, was it possible that others actually saw my good qualities? I started to believe it might be possible! What a great feeling! Could this also be true for you? Is it possible that those close to you have never ever seen you as the failed and flawed being you see yourself to be? Could it be that they see you for who you really are – a divinely created soul? I absolutely believe this is true for you! I absolutely believe that the “you” you see and the “you” they see are two entirely different versions of yourself. They see you for all your goodness and kindness and pure love. How wonderful would it be if you were able to see yourself through their eyes? Maybe its time to try!

All of this brings us to the final question: Why do you care how other people see you? Because the truth could set you free! How many years have you assumed that everyone around you sees you exactly as you see yourself? How life changing would it be if you came to believe that all those around you actually see you for who you really are under the damaged outer layer? What if those around you never judged you for the test you failed that they didn’t even know about or that time you fell down in public and everyone laughed? What if they forgot that ever happened or what if they did remember it happened but they also remembered the way you laughed together as they helped you to your feet? What if all the things you have been beating yourself up about for decades never even made it to the memory banks of those who love you? What if they remembered the time you stopped the car and ran to move a turtle out of the path of traffic? What if they remembered how you stood up for the child who was being bullied in school? What if they remembered the time you sat with them all night after a painful breakup? Why do you care? Because maybe they can see the real you and knowing that could change everything!

My challenge to you is to ask those closest to you what memory about you stands out most in their minds. Ask those close to you what qualities they see in you. Ask them how they see you. It might just change your world!

Thank you so much for being here!!! I look forward to being with you again in a couple of days.

Love and Light!

Sometimes You Just Have To Let That $hit Go!

Oooooo! Such a good card today!! Welcome back faithful friends! Today is day 9 of 78 as we work our way through the Tarot deck. For those who find the Tarot a bit of a conflict with your religious training, rest assured, I am using them for inspiration and always tie them back to lessons from God ! If you have ever received a message from the Divine through something someone said or through a song or even a billboard along the highway, you know God uses whatever he needs to use in order to speak to us.

The card that presented itself today is the Four of Pentacles. It shows a successful merchant with a satisfied smile on his face proudly holding all four golden shields in his arms close to his heart. A clear, starlit sky behind him gives us the feeling that all is well with the merchant. His robe is deep purple trimmed in gold, yet another indication that he has done very well for himself financially. His posture is straight and tall but not overly proud. This man is feeling very secure in his position. Isn’t this what all of us want out of life? Don’t we want that feeling of safety and security in our financial life? For me, this has always been my primary goal; however, I now see a problem could be waiting ahead.

Just imagine what decision this merchant would be face with if God put a new and wonderful opportunity in front of him. What if he were handed the reigns of a beautiful horse that would take the merchant to distant, enchanted lands? Or what if a beautiful maiden whom he had been admiring from afar came to him and offered him her hand so that they could walk together on the moonlit beach? In order to take the reigns of the horse or the hand of his true love, he would be forced to let go of his tight grasp on the shields causing them to fall to the ground.

Does our desire for wealth and financial security sometimes lead us to cling too tightly to our material wealth at the expense of giving up new adventures and possibilities? There is a very well known parable in the Bible that come to mind. It is the story of the rich man who wants so much to keep all his rich harvest for himself instead of sharing with his brother. When his harvest was too much for his barns to hold, when he had more than enough for himself, instead of giving to others, he tore down his barns and built bigger ones. The day the bigger barns were completed and his harvest safely secured, the man died. What good did it do for the rich man to hoard all his earthly wealth?

We must be responsible and put back enough so that we can support ourselves when we reach the time we are unable or unwilling to work any longer. The question is this: How much is enough? At this very moment I know of a couple facing this decision. Path one is years and years more of work doing a job that stressful and unfulfilling but at the end of those years the payoff will be huge. Path two is to get out early and live a fantasy life aboard a sailing vessel for ten years dropping anchor at whatever exotic location they choose. The payoff for path two is not as rich, but it is enough to live their dream life as long as they live a bit more frugally! Staying on path one and working another 10-15 years will put them at an age where taking off on a boat will not be as feasible. So, do they give up the security of greater wealth later in life or do they give up the dream life? This is the dilemma.

This is where our faith is called into focus. Do we put our faith in our ability to accumulate material wealth or do we put our faith in God and trust that he will provide the opportunities we need to make money when we really need it? What is more important? Do we take a leap of faith and live a dream life or do we stick to the drudgery of working until we die? The choice is always ours to make.

Looking back at our lives, Kevin and I made the decision to let go of the security and take a leap of faith to live our best lives. We have never been rich financially and never will be, but we have always had enough and we always will. If I compare sitting on a secluded beach with great friends to sitting in an office pouring over financial spreadsheets, I know that letting go of the security was the best decision we ever made!

What grand adventure would you love to have? How much is enough to make that dream come true? When old age comes and options for the grand adventure are gone, will you be happy with the choices you made? The answers will be different for everyone. I would LOVE to hear what your grand adventure is! What would you love to do more than anything else in life? Please share!

Thanks again for being here!

Love

Suzy
