Powerful Herbs That Wonderfully Empower Women

Tranquil women rule!

Women empoweredWe Must Empower Women

Women are awesome. Their supportive presence empowers the basis of our society and of our homes. We even refer to the Earth as our mother, so to speak, for from her we were formed and made. A women empowered can only do us good. Pardon me for a moment, but I think it must be said: None of us want “bitches” running our show! You know what I mean? You know someone who can benefit from this post, lead them to it.

Balanced women as a whole prefer people with cool sanity, resolve and the force of gentle coercion to evoke the outcome they want. As was mentioned in the first post at the beginning of this blog, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you’re right!” You are the one who ultimately decides your capability in everything.

Nevertheless, women have “building” power by nature! Even though men are considered as the rule makers and the rulers of The Kingdom. Though Gd is neither male nor female in truth, the general reference is to “It” as male. The Divine Presence, that aspect of “It”which hovers in and around us is considered feminine. Go figure! Nevertheless, there’s truth to the saying, “behind every great man there’s a great woman”. Right? There is so much we learn from you. There is so much love you give in caring for the future and the strength of our nation. To your service in this mix of life, we thank and appreciate having the experience of you in it

… Sharing and caring with respect.

Empower women!

Hey, do you remember the time when people played music from their album collection of “records” on players like this one? Quite the interesting recollection for me anyway … “A blast from the past”:

Anyway, back to our subject, what the world needs now, as it has for ever, is strong, powerful women. I’m not talking about the “Amazon” type of manly woman. Rather it’s about women of great character and fortitude to handle the tasks at hand before them as heroines. Proudly standing up for their beliefs and instilling them within the family as a foundation for being. The husband is her support. She is the “home” that he returns to successfully after “the hunt” for an income. I’m talking about “old school” living where those who despite hormonal fluctuations manage to remain balanced in their state of mind and “weather” their storm with poise and acceptance. They knew their herbs.

At the least, a woman’s body is designed to evolve and change. To adjust to these changes smoothly, it is highly recommended to maintain a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly. Choose the right pattern of eating for yourself and supplement with herbal formulations according to your needs. The following herbs are among those considered when looking for ways that women can support their hormonal and reproductive wellness. 5 herbs for women’s health. Please be aware and keep in mind that some of these herbs are not intended for use during pregnancy.

Please consult with your knowledgeable health-care professional before using herbs during pregnancy or while breast-feeding.

12 Mushrooms and Herbs To Deal With Asthma

Medicinal Mushrooms

Mushrooms

Perhaps the funkiest elements of the “Kingdom” are the mushrooms. Not knowing how to categorize them adds to their mystery. But in actuality, they are fungi, not plants and are amazing.

They are also very good sources of B vitamins, especially niacin and riboflavin. They rank the highest among vegetables for protein content, but because they are low in fat and calories, Western nutritionists once mistakenly considered them as without much food value. But now they are recognized as valuable and trending as a food. (A fresh pound has about 125 calories only). In dried form, fungi have almost as much protein as veal and a significant amount of poly-saccharides. Shiitake’s are perhaps the most delicious of all the fungi mentioned and maybe the most nutritious.

Nutritional value of medicinal mushrooms

A study by Spanish researchers has shown that microwaving and grilling are the best processes to maintain the nutritional profile of culinary mushrooms.

Can plants help people access the intelligence in nature or the “mind of nature”?

In the last post, there is a video where Michael Pollan discusses “the plant’s eye view” In it he spoke about how we are quite possibly “puppets” of the botanical kingdom and are doing its will unknowingly If you missed it, you might want to hear what he had to say. Nevertheless, must we learn to understand the mind of nature in order to supersede our ecologically destructive habits? An interesting conference took place in 2014 discussing the medicinal use of hallucinogenic plants, of which some mushrooms are in that category.

While this site is not going to get into those aspects of “magic” in the “Kingdom”, we clearly respect and stand behind the responsible use of them. You can watch the recording of that conference here. For anyone who is interested in understanding more about these types of fungi, this following video recorded what Paul Stamets had to say about his experiences with “magic ‘shrooms”:

But let’s get back to the title of this topic … Dealing with asthma. First, listen to what Chef Marcus Guiliano said he did to get rid of his asthma. He makes mention of some things that you may want to consider in your overall strategy.

Dr. Isaac Eliaz discusses the benefits of medicinal mushrooms and how they can help with a number of conditions by enhancing the bodies’ immune system.

You already know the answer if you clicked the above link and read the article … A resounding yes! And support for a wide range of other chronic conditions also. I don’t know about you, but I hadn’t heard of Chaga mushrooms before researching for this post. But I’m glad I did:

Amazing 1 Unseen Eye Seeks G-d

An unseen eye

What? Now plants have unseen eyes?

Their amazing eyes ...Unseen Sight?

At least some are beginning to think so. Maybe now you will too … If you can be convinced! Is it possible that we once knew much more than we do now and that selectively some critical memories were erased in order for us to be challenged later by faulty belief systems?

Unseen really means once was seen but now not. For what reason?

Who really knows? Does anybody really know what time it is? History is all too jumbled up to be sure. Maybe “her” story would be more accurate if the time was used to record that instead? Food for thought that.

In any case, a plants  visual capacity apparently is now being discovered … Or re-discovered depending on how to this is considered.

Anyway, continuing somewhat with what I said in the previous post, there are so many miraculous things going on in and around us every moment in our lives. One of the least of them is known as the “Doctrine of Signatures“. In short, it states that herbs resembling various parts of the body are signs that they likely can be used by herbalists to treat ailments of those body parts.

That’s amazing if it is true! Really. What that means is that they grow in a way that causes us to to recognize that they’ve seen us … That they recognized that it is they specifically are the ones we require for “whatever the signature shows”and make us recognize them by their appearance. Of course, I can’t prove this but it is an interesting concept.

Let me take you even further. Have you learned that we are the pinnacle of creation? All of the world was created before we were and only we were made in the likeness of Gd. How about that? The only problem is that we possess a dual nature.  One which wavers between an inclination to represent Gd-ly qualities and another which revels in the opposite. As a result, much of the divine potential inherent in this life is not witnessed. It is apparently part of “The Master’s Plan” that we are embattled with free will.

Being spiritual beings in this human experience is a contention between physicality, which seems more real than the reality, and our spiritual nature. We tend to forget who we really are and get bogged down in this world of desires and fame. There’s much falseness in the ways humans have come to live. Plus, for the most part, many aren’t even living their own lives as much as they live through others by being “glued” to the television for hours on end watching their “idols” in movies or sports! Seriously.

It stands to reason that a being made in Gd’s “image” should likewise be a creator!! Creating their realities … Not allowing someone or something else do that for them. Am I right? Boldly be yourself! Remember, hindsight is 20/20!!

Moving along, why would a plant care about our well-being? What’s in it for them? Is there an advantage to them? Well, maybe this is their way of reincarnation … Or more correctly, incarnation at its beginning. Becoming a part and parcel of the makings of a being who resembles Gd. Their whole desire in life is to seek out a way to be in service to the Creator.

Even though we may fool them into thinking they found the right address by entering our bodies, they nonetheless do serve the purpose for which they were created. And they do it well we eventually come to realize and say. Because we owe our lives to vegetation … salads, stews, soups and dishes spiced the way we love. Of course, let’s not forget their medicinal value in times of imbalance with natural law.

That leads me to another thought. I think that sometimes we can wrongly accuse Gd of either causing something to happen or not intervening when something disastrous does happen. Wrongly because according to scripture, when the creation of the world was complete, Gd ceased at that point and let the natural laws that were built into the creation do what they do. There was no need for any further involvement. The mechanism was set to work on its own.

When you deviate from the right paths of action, you are obviously not heading in a good direction. In other words, too much of anything is not healthy. It’s TOO MUCH! You created an unbalanced situation. Correction is needed. But if you keep that behavior up heedlessly of warning signs … All systems go wack. It’s a shame when it could have been prevented from the start. Prevention is better than cure! It’s a blessing though to have access to good natural remedies.

So be tuned to the signs and signals that are on your way. Pay attention to what the Universe is telling you and cherish the gifts that you get along the way for recognition. The eyes that seek will find sights more stunning than even an imagination can conjure. But, if it does happen that your eyes do in fact need help, Gd forbid though unless there’s great blessing in the existence of  it, you should check out this publication for some good information: Medicinal Plants and Eye Care. Consider learning more about The Best 12 Herbs to Keep Eyes Healthy and Disease Free. Last, but not least, you can learn about more herbs for eye health here.

We must also remember that it’s not just herbs that can be enlisted to help solve eye problems. Be sure to consider super-foods for eyes too.

Discover 19 Herbs In The Light Of An Urban Night!

Discover Herben Urban Delights!

Discover Hidden Light!

Thanks for taking this monumental step forward in what has set out to be a delightful journey of personal and herbal discovery . . . One before many more to follow! I’m an urban herbalist with a passion for revealing the divinity of this experience we know of as “life” and revealing what is possible for others to see too. Your mind is about to be opened to a world where blessings are common. The botanical kingdom is marvelous and the gifts that they offer us are free and at the same time priceless! We simply need to learn how to experience as much of their goodness as possible.

This site is a gradual development. A work in progress whose goal is to reveal many ways how to do just that. Stay tuned and be updated … Subscribe to this!

The name of this site is a play on words that may be obvious only to a select few. But the title of this post should give you a clue. While there are so many good things to be experienced and to gain in this lifetime, as long as Gd is considered distant or even non-existent, we are living in a dangerous state of darkness. Such thoughts are what give rise to lawlessness and uncivil behavior. We need to acknowledge the artistry in the creation of the world. Living wisely within the flow of the “laws of the Universe” and combing this with the recognition that Gd is surely present, will we then know true light and truly good days.

We are civilized we say. So why is the news that floods our visual and auditory senses for the most part bordering around terrible? But we are supposed to be creators of good, right? What is it about human nature that causes some people to deviate from their position as bearers and projectors of “holiness”( due to the origins of our souls) and allow themselves and others to make their neighbors and other inhabitants of the world frightfully scared? Being a vector of fear even in just a slight amount to cohabitants of an environment is an aberration from how we are to be.

Surely there are a vast number of things that are not in our control. But still, much of what we experience in our lives has a lot to do with what we think … How we interpret the experiences we meet. The mode of operation that is most set evokes the law of karma as it relates to thought. Those which dominate your mind are the types that keep coming around by the force of your habits. As Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you are correct!”

Set your mind for success.

What is needed is a way to make more smiles. Ways to sense and express joy in the many stages we go through in life. While there is no way to avoid a “bad day” sometimes, we cannot let it ruin the morrow by dwelling on the past. When you live “in the now” with positive thoughts and actions toward a worthy goal, you get to experience why those moments are considered “presents”. Not only are you fully present body and mind within the situation, but the resulting success in assuring achievement of the goal is a “gift”. It’s a great feeling to have lots of those!

Take this post as an example for instance. It’s come to life because I wrote it. It’s an example of what happens when a human being puts its mind to achieve a goal. In this case, to create something from the “ethereal substances” in the “blood” of the Universe, ideas, that lead me to think more deeply about and bring them to “life”. If you have not done so yet, read both: “The Science of Getting Rich” and “The Law of Opulence“, by Wallace D. Wattles. We can be awesome when we put our minds to it!

Let’s say you’ve been “bit” by the better health bug. What is the first thing you should do? Well, go natural. Begin to eat as we were originally intended to. Sufficient intake of fruits and vegetables has been associated with a reduced risk of chronic diseases and body weight management. So an increase in consumption of fresh raw salad greens, fruits and whatever other enriching vegetable additions you can enjoy with your meals daily, is a must do activity. Moreover, a little-known benefit of eating more fruits and vegetables is increased satisfaction!

Discover ... The best fruits and vegetables to eat!

 

Within the pages and posts of this site, we will be disclosing links we believe are worth investigating while “shining a spotlight” on life and its challenges along with some of the most prized healing strategies available to cope and deal with the challenges. As is mentioned on our home page, this site is intended to be one of the most powerful gateways to learning how plants are G-d’s multi-faceted medicinal gifts to us. We will show how you too can gain wellness from your environment and relish in the “deliciousness” of its goodness to you.

Please join us and learn as we continue to trek through alternate realities and manage to maintain the ones that serve us best. We want to live they way we are intended to live. The power is within us to change our way in the world and as a result, even change the world. We’ve got to allow Gd to let us back into “The Garden“! In the meantime, consider keeping within reach for use, these 10 herbs and spices with powerful health benefits . You might even want to consider these 9 herbs that are good for detoxifying the body. To the best of health!
