From Witch to Wisdom Crafter

It’s very interesting how things are brought into our paths. For example, for 30 years I have been studying the use of herbs and natural medicines as well as using natural elements in cleaning products and self care. I have used essential oils for decades to take advantage of their given powers. I am one who feels the energy of other people and of objects so strongly that it makes me very uncomfortable to be in chaotic situations such as bustling shopping areas or noisy restaurants or to be around people who have chaotic energies which portrays as loudness, attention seeking and boisterous characteristics. It has only recently come to my attention that this is just one more weird thing about me that not all humans experience. As I started trying to understand what makes me different, the topic of magick – with a K – started showing up as well as witchcraft. Of course I never ever considered myself a witch so it felt wrong to even look at such material. When I did look at it, I realized I do have a lot of the traits of such beings.

So, that led me to the “witches” who were burned at the stake in the Middle Ages. When I researched what led people to accuse certain women of being witches, I found the following to be the most common reasons for such a classification. If a woman could read or write, she was a witch. If a woman who was not the designated and titled healer in a kingdom used herbs and tonics to heal people, she was a witch. If a woman searched the forest and fields for herbs with healing or “magickal” properties, she was a witch. If a woman believed in signs from nature and made predictions from such signs, she was a witch. For example, if she examined the markings of the wooly caterpillars in the fall and predicted a harsh winter which then came true, she was a witch. Any of these things could easily have led to her being burned alive at the stake. It was so easy for the people within a settlement to cause mass hysteria. All they had to do was point their finger and yell “Witch!” to stir up a huge mob mentality event that would lead to a conviction without anything resembling a speedy and fair trial. With all of this going on, it’s no wonder these kind, nature loving beings who happened to be in tune with the signs and wisdom of nature started hiding their craft. Hiding the craft just added to the overall sense that if it had to be hidden, it MUST be evil. This is where the whole persona of the evil, black magick witch came from. Mass hysteria led to a false narrative that made all natural healers appear to be monsters.

When I looked at this list it didn’t take long to recognize that I would have been a crispy critter long, long ago. So why were these women who were gifted in the arts of nature so feared that they had to be exterminated? Again, it all goes back to control by the ruling class. If there were people out there, especially women, who could heal people and predict upcoming weather conditions, there would be no need for the ruling class to dominate these arts. By controlling these arts, the people were forced to depend on the ruling class to heal them or tell them what was coming. It was, and still is, by forcing the people to look at the ruling class for salvation that enables the ruling class to remain in control.

Let’s step forward a few hundred years. After the witch burning thing cooled down and the practice was stopped, the people with the earth arts were still seen as a threat to the power of the ruling class. In the very early years of the 1900’s the ruling class again stepped forward to put an end to the earth arts. Up until about 1910, the medical schools that existed were based completely on the earth arts and had been since the dawn of humanity. The ruling class decided to once and for all eliminate the earth arts as medicine. They needed a way to control the people and to profit from the people. If ill people could go out in the woods and gather their own medicine, there was no control or profit available for the ruling class. So they introduced a “science” based medicine. They started by manipulating herbs and natural elements in their laboratories to create science based medicines and procedures. An example of this is how they created the miracle drug – Aspirin. The pain relieving element in aspirin comes from the bark of the white willow tree. These scientists extracted the pain relieving portion and made the drug from in. What they didn’t do is also extract the element from the bark that buffers the pain reliever which makes it harmless to the stomach lining. In the laboratory created Aspirin, there was no buffer in the beginning so people who used Aspirin started developing bleeding ulcers in the stomach. This is why buffers eventually had to be added to Aspirin to make it safer for repeat consumption. They thought they were making a good thing better when in fact, they hurt people by messing with Mother Nature.

Then, just like burning the witches at the stake, they put an end to the teaching of natural medicine by cutting off funding to the natural medicine schools. They put out a survey to all the schools which was tasked with determining which schools could be manipulated into following their “new science” path. Those were the schools they funded. All the funding to the other schools was quickly cut off. This made it impossible for the natural medicine schools to continue. To make the demise of natural medicine complete, the masterminds behind science based medicine grabbed the loudspeaker of the media and started their propaganda campaign to ruin the reputation of natural medicine forever. They were almost completely successful. They made the people believe that 6000+ years of natural medicine history was all quackery and anyone who followed natural medicine was a fool. The people bought the propaganda hook, line and sinker. This was nearly the end of natural medicine – until recently. Over the past few decades, there has been a rising number of natural practitioners who have gone back to the craft despite being called all kinds of names for doing so. The practice has risen with such a force that now you can find natural herbs and remedies in main stream drug stores. Most everyone takes some sort of natural supplement despite being told by their doctors how harmful they could be. Hogwash!! Have you ever looked at or listened to the list of harmful side effects that come from their science based drugs? Good Lord!!! Now who are the crazy ones?!?

Now let’s look at what is going on with this new and supposedly life threatening thing that is going around. There are proven natural cures that defeat the bug in as few as 24 hours but the ruling class has made it illegal for doctors to prescribe them. If we can cure ourselves, why would we agree to live in a perpetual state of fear so they can continue to rule over us? The funniest thing about all of this is that this whole debacle has lead to a new generation of those of us who practice “witchcraft”. This group is leading the way out of the matrix and on to a higher level of living which will usher in New Earth and 5D reality. As this is happening, the ruling class is crashing and burning. They are no longer a reality for those of us forging the way. We have turned our focus on living in a better world. What we focus on becomes our reality. As one of these people, I am choosing to leave behind the term “witch” and all the negative connotations associated with it and instead am labeling myself as a Wisdom Crafter. If it is acceptable for people to self identify with all kinds of different pronouns, animals and beings, it is perfectly OK for me to identify as a Wisdom Crafter and so it is and shall be in New Earth and beyond.

Thanks so much for being here. Please feel free to share this post with those who might find it up-lifting.

Love to all!

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.

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.
