Faerie Lily

Lily is my inner child.
She dances within animated faery pictures
laced with rainbows.
She beacons a light hearted soul
sometimes found in me.
that’s what I’ve named her.
I think of her as someone separate
from me
my solace
my pretend
celtic design tattoos of creativity.
We often sit together
sipping tea
seeking magic
faries and mermaids color pages.
We keep leaves in our pockets
and baby roses at our table.

And yet…
my damsel is sometimes in distress
drawings of scorpions
those grim reaper drawings
haunt us both.

I think of her alone
regretting… always
growing older
not pretty anymore
abandoned by creativity
seeking out, but not finding validation
never measuring up
still struggling despite her efforts to achieve
sitting on the side of the road
with a cup.
Ahh yes my Lily of drama!

Lily is all the things I fear and more.

So that I might have compassion for the Lily ‘in me’,

I think of Lily…
her fears
and try to cheer her up!
What are friends for?

She does not need to feel so alone
I am here to help her.

I try to remind her,
that yes!
It IS possible to stand inside a rainbow
that leaves on trees
and baby roses
are tokens that she is worthy of my friendship.
And I sing songs to her
with lyrics that say
she is capable
and can overcome the things she frets about.

Oft times we care for others
more than our our own selves
and forget we exist at all.

I try to give Lily an out, a new road
instead of the same road,
that includes sadness
or whatever I feel causes me or Lily to falter.

Thus I refer to Lily a lot in things I write,
animated faery pictures I guess.
Sometimes Lily falls
and I do too
drawings of scorpions
outshine the possibility of angels.
the more I decide to love me back
love Lily
the warmer we both are.

Name your inner child too, humm?
Offer that side of you a name
and then embrace it
step right ‘inside’ that rainbow.

What Mother Earth Means To Me

Mother Earth is grandiose in every way. She is a true Goddess. As ruler of the Muladhara Chakra the mechanism of her organism works in perfect harmony, according to her needs, just as our bodies work in harmony to meet our needs. Her surface is a beautiful interpretation of Her Soul, and Her core, we see its reflection in Her strength.
Its not just about the big things, like landscapes, oceans, mountains and deserts, but its also about the little things, the flowers that grow wild, big and small, the seeds that germinate in the ground and transform into trees, those subtle rays of sunshine that everyday fill me up of energy and give me clarity. It is during these “Godly moments” that I am revealed how things are, how life is. I call this reading the Earth. Standing by a window and gazing out at the trees and the sky and whatever perfect picture Nature has painted in front of me this moment, and then the breeze that makes its way in and caresses my face; I take in the beauty, in awe. Life is beautiful, and Nature is the Artist.
Earth is a holy body of Mother Nature, Her surface is the skin, beautiful, green, fresh. Earth Mother carries us in Her arms, provides us a home, our real home while we journey through this life. It is a fact that the core of Earth emanates a vibration that sounds like a heartbeat, and our heartbeats are in synchronization with it of Earth Mother. The awareness of this synchronization is a way to read the earth. She speaks in the wind and in the trees, She speaks to us all, her creatures, humans, animals and plants.

Mother Earth is our home, we can never be homeless and we can never get lost.
She is our teacher. When we observe how she works through her cycles we learn to move through our own. She has ways of giving the signs of change, and the more we connect with the Earth the sooner we learn to notice these signs.
She is our healer and provider, for everything we need to live a healthy life is given to us in the Earth.
She is our role model, and when we learn to follow in Her steps we will learn to get along, coexist and be united.
She is our friend, always there for us, even those times when we think we’re all alone and no one can hear us, She can.

Mother Earth gives us everything we need for everything we need.

How To Establish A Close Relationship With Mother Earth

– meditate with nature. When we take a moment to contemplate on the beauty of nature we are meditating with nature. Find a place where nature surrounds you. If this is not possible, even sitting near a plant, flowers or a tree helps. For a moment allow yourself to relax, take a few deep breaths and let your mind and spirit do the rest.

– ask and you shall receive. Mother Earth is always listening, remember to ask before taking a flower, a leaf, a branch or a tree. She appreciates it and will reward you for your kindness and courtesy. Consider this a Universal Divine Law.

– listen. A healthy conversation is like a two way street, sometimes we speak to Mother Earth and sometimes we listen. Open the ears of the soul and you will hear Her.

– don’t hate weather changes. There is a reason for each season and Mother Earth knows best. Change brings progress, engage in happy

– give thanks. Showing our appreciation for all the beautiful things Mother Earth provides for us is an excellent way to interact with Her, and getting to know Her well.

– join the community. Working with the community as one towards Peace creates a special kind of vibratory frequency which reaches the farthest depths of the Earth, where She can feel what we feel in our hearts.

It is a known fact that positive energy has a strong effect on living beings and the happier we are the more beautiful the Earth gets.

In Joy & Divine Love, Blessed be.

Dr. God & The Goods of the Earth

It’s been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, then made dry land, planted a garden of herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers, made fish and animals… all before making a human. God made and provided what we would need before we were born and through Mother Earth continues to make sure we receive the goods we need for a healthy life. These gifts are best and more powerful when eaten raw… but we’re such slow learners.
God left us great clues to know what foods help what part of our body, let’s find these clues and live the Good Life.

Welcome to God’s Pharmacy!


A sliced Carrot resembles the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.


A Tomato has four chambers and is of the color red, much like the heart which also has four chambers and is red. Research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.


Grapes hang in a cluster taking the shape of the heart, and each individual grape looks like a blood cell. Research today shows that grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.


A Walnut looks like a brain, the left and right hemispheres, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.


Kidney Beans look exactly like the human kidneys and, yes, they literally heal and help maintain kidney function.


The many more that look just like bones are in fact beneficial to the bone structure. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.


Avocado, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female body, they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this? It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).


Figs are full of seeds and hang in 2s when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.


Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.


Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.


Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.


Onions look like the cells in the body. Research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, Garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Live Happy! Live Healthy!

*Note: This article came to me in the form of a circulating email. I edited and added tips I learned in the course of my years in holistic therapeutic practice and study.

Himalayan Crystal Salt

For years, now, we’ve heard people talking about the dangers of salt. We’ve learned how it can lead to or aggravate many poor health conditions. Some say that we need to eliminate salt from our diet. It’s true, and there’s more to the story.

Common Table Salt is the Culprit People Say It Is

First, every living animal needs salt to survive. The proper salt can provide beneficial nutrients and minerals. It can help regulate our pH levels and can guard against dehydration in some instances. I know, you’ve never heard that about salt. And with good reason-it’s not true of common salt.

Common salt is a heavily processed substance that is used in industrial applications all over the world. Only 3% of the common salt produced is meant for human consumption. Common table salt lays a heavy burden on your body with the toxins it presents. Any benefit that salt had was bleached and chemically stripped from it leaving the common table salt that we most often use today.

Better Salt for Your Body

Beneficial, good salt is not processed, but naturally collected from deposits in the earth. The best salt is Himalayan Crystal Salt and it’s the purest salt in the world, hand-collected from salt deposits that have been in the earth for more than 200 million years. This salt is nutritious throughout its substance. So if you chip off the top or dig deep to collect it, the compliment of nutrients is the same in each piece. What this means is that you can use large chunks or tiny, table-salt sized granules and still receive the full benefit.

Himalayan Crystal Salt has in it the same 84 minerals that can be found in sea water. It’s the same 84 minerals that are found in the water of our bodies. Even though our body water is very similar to sea water, sea salt is not the best thing for us either. Sea salt has a similar disadvantage to common table salt. Although it’s not as toxic as common table salt, because it’s processed, some of its nutritive value is depleted. There’s really nothing as healthful as Himalayan Crystal Salt.

Benefits of Himalayan Crystal Salt

Internally and externally, there is no better salt than pure Himalayan Crystal Salt. And, as a food additive, you can feel safe in knowing that you’re not flavoring your dishes with toxins. You can drink sole daily, to encourage good health for your whole body. Himalayan crystal salt can do some powerful things including:

Replenish electrolytes, the body’s power source
Heartbeat regulation
Soothe aching, sore muscles
Skin revitalization
Guard against dehydration

Because Himalayan Crystal Salt is the embodiment of living energy, you can mix it with purified water, to release that power. One of the great ways to release the benefits of this living energy is to prepare sole.

To drink daily, add 1 teaspoon of 26% sole solution to a glass of purified water. Mixing sole with purified water to get a 1% sole solution, you can use it for the following:

Gargle during throat or sinus infections
Rinse your eyes
Clean wounds
Flush sinuses

Taurus Full Moon

Full Moon – November 13, 2008 1:17am.

The Full Moon this November is in the zodiac house of Taurus, and is known as the Mourning Moon, among the many other names.

The Taurus Full Moon is excellent for material plane works, though the final aspect of Moon opposite Mars makes doing direct work difficult. So be clever: rather than plan the ritual directly, use opposites. Don’t state your purpose as, “I want more money,” say, “I want poverty in my life to disappear.” Better yet, if you can identify barriers that have impeded your progress, work to banish that. For this reason, this Moon also bodes well for some types of healing, especially if you want to get rid of something specific – like acne or excess weight.
Candle magic can be effective for this type of spell. Find a small candle to represent the obstacle in your life. A birthday candle will work well. Be sure to put it in a fireproof holder or container. Compose a short chant, like “Acne vanish,” “Obesity away,” or “Poverty be gone.”
Cast a circle, light the candle, and chant your chant. Visualize the obstacle going away for as long as it takes the candle to completely burn out. When the flame finally flickers and dies, immediately shout, “So mote it be!” and end the circle.


How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
