Carob



Carob (Ceratonia siliqua)

Carob is one of the most frequently used substitutions for chocolate. When I was little I use to spend a lot of time at my Grandmother's house, and she use to take me to the health food store to get Carob chips. While I admit it's not as good as chocolate, if you can't have chocolate for some reason or need to cut down on your sugar carob is a really nice subsitute. It does taste quite a bit like chocolate. Carob is a member of the pea family and is an evergreen shrub or trea. It started being used about 4,000 years ago in the Meditteranean. It was also used in ancient Egypt and Rome. The pods it produces were once actually used as a currency. Carob produces the carob fruit which can then be dried or powdered to use as a chocolate substitute. Another advantage to carob is that it does not contain theobromine, which is what's lethal to pet's in chocolate. It's was a very common sweetner before sugar became widely available.

Medicinally, carob is used for digestion problems including diarrhea, heartburn, and the intestine’s inability to properly absorb certain nutrients from food. These absorption disorders include celiac disease and sprue.Other uses of carob include treatment of obesity, vomiting during pregnancy and high cholesterol.

Spiritually it's useful for protection and prosperity. It can be burned as an incense to attract spirit helpers and familiars, or to deter poltergeists.

As some of you know I have really tightened up my diet over the past few years, getting rid of sugar in as many places as I could.  One of the things I've always enjoyed during the cold winter months was  a hot cocoa. Now that we are going into those cooler months and the fall air is getting crisp in the mornings and evenings I've found that craving coming back.  As an alternative I found this recipe for Hot Carob.

What You Need
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 tablespoon carob powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine milk and carob powder in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisking to remove any lumps. Stir in honey and vanilla extract. Continue heating to desired temperature.

Love and Blessings,

Merry Meet and Good Morning :))) Blessings to you and yours for a magickal day today. Today is Monday, September 30, 2013.

Mondays are ruled by the magic and mystery of the Moon and are days of peace, sleep, healing, compassion, friends, psychic awareness, purification, and fertility. The moon and humanity are intrinsically linked. The moon affects so many cycles in our lives like the ocean’s tides, feminine cycles, and seasonal cycles. Focus on accepting change gracefully, release your anxieties and past hurts and let go of your past. Today is a good day for spells involving emotions, the subconscious, domestic issues, feminine issues, psychic pursuits and dream work. If you are working with stones today choose pearls or moonstones for protection. Use emeralds for amulets, and silver when making talismans.

Tonight's Moon is Waning, Fourth Quarter with 14% visibility. The Waning Moon is a time for study, meditation, and little magickal work except magick designed to banish harmful energies. The Waning Moon represents the Goddess in her Crone aspect. It’s a time to celebrate the wisdom gained through life. The next important event for your magickal workings is the New Moon on October 4, 2013.

Today the Moon is in Leo. The Moon in Leo draws emphasis to the self, central ideas, or institutions and away from connections with others and other emotional needs. People can tend to be melodramatic. The magickal color of the day is Gray and the incense of the day is Rosemary. Have an amazingly magickal day!

The Song That's Stuck In Your Mind....

**graphic by Mae*


The Song That's Stuck In Your Mind.... 

Merry Meet :)))) How many of you find yourself walking around for ages with a song stuck in your head. I have lost track of the times where I've said, "I cannot get this song out of my head!" I have tried blasting the radio, singing different songs, watching tv, and still I'll find myself back to singing that same song.

So this could happen just because it's a catchy tune. I have definitely had that happen. You can usually tell those as the moment you hear the song, you just know you will be singing it the rest of the day. These songs I'm talking about are the ones you don't remember hearing recently that just come to you out of nowhere. All of a sudden you're singing them, they're on the radio, and showing up frequently.

Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why? Those of you who have been with me for awhile know that my favorite quote is that "everything happens for a reason." I believe this with all my heart. even though we may not understand thing I don't believe in "coincidences." So the next time you have a song that's stuck in your head ask yourself why it's there. Does the song have personal meaning to you? What are the lyrics saying? More often then not when this happens to me, the message is in the lyrics. So see what the lyrics have to say and if any of it is relevant to what's going on in your life right now. It may be one of your guide's attempts to get your attention.

This is also something you can use as a tool to communicate with your guides. You can ask them to send you a sign in a song. Ask them the question you wish to have the answer to. Give it at least 48 hours. I usually know as my hands will start to tingle, my solar plexus gets fluttery, and my heart beat will quicken. Use your intuition. ;) You may recognize your answer right away. It will likely get repeated a couple times over the next day. It may play in a situation that makes it obvious. I've had songs come on the radio station that don't belong there. For example a song from the 60's shows up all of a sudden on a radio station that plays only current pop and dance music. Other times I have had the channel change at random. I will be listening to music and all of a sudden the channel will change to a song that answers my question. The kicker on this one for me is when it then changes again after only a chorus has played with an answer to my question. :)))))) It's amazing what they can do to communicate with us.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Gemstones for Empaths and Sensitives

Photo by Moira Ashleigh


Gemstones for Empaths

Merry Meet :)))) As empaths and highly sensitives, gemstones can be very helpful to us. Most of us are very sensitive to their beautiful energy and can have wonderful results when working with them. So today I wanted to compile a list of gemstones that I think would be very helpful for you to work with. Some of them I work with personally all the time. As always though what's most important is how you feel when working with a gemstone. The best thing to do is start working with these stones and decide which ones have the best impact on you. You can choose one or several of them. :)))

General: I always recommend that everyone chooses a quartz crystal. I work with my quartz crystal most frequently. It really is a magickal tool for me. For more information on the quartz and it's many uses you can see this article: The Many Uses Of Quartz Crystal

Multi-purpose: One of the stones I wear around my neck is amethyst. This is another gemstone that is just wonderful for us to work with. It can help protect us psychically, reduce stress, enhance intuition, and help with meditation. It's just a wonderful stone all around.

Protection: As an empath, psychic protection is extremely important for us. I get requests for recommendations for a protection stone the most. I personally work with hematite. There's something about hematite that is equally comforting to me as well as protective. Some other great choices are black tourmaline, obsidian, bloodstone, labradorite, jasper, and onyx.

Grounding: Many of the stones that are used for protection are also great to use when grounding. Try using them when you do your grounding exercises. Other suggestions include jasper and malachite.

Releasing Negative Energy: Amber is a great choice to work with when grounding, and releasing any negative energy. This is something you should be doing frequently, because as empaths we can act like giant sponges for energy.

Enhance Intuition: Rainbow Moonstone is my absolute favorite for developing my intuition. I have a bracelet with a beautiful rainbow moonstone that I have been wearing for a few years now. I just love the energy on the stone.

Calming Gemstones: Let's be honest, a lot of us tend to worry.. a lot. lol :))) So it's quite helpful to have a stone on us that will help calm our energies. Jade is a great choice.

Positive Energy: I think it's helpful to have a gemstone that can boost our positive energy. Citrine is my favorite stone for this. :)))) This stone just lifts my energy and makes me smile. It's nice to have it to work with when you need that added boost. Tiger's eye is also a great choice. Tiger's eye can give you personal strength as well as joy. :))))

Relationships: As empaths we can tend to be guarded in relationships. For some of us, trust is very hard to give away. A great stone to work with to assist in your relationships is rose quartz. This stone is also amazing to help us learn self-love as well which is very important. It's a very calming stone that will help heal us and open our hearts.

Working with the angels: I wanted to include this as I credit the angels with so much on my path. They are a huge help in both the control and development of my gift. If you work with the angels I would pick up an angelite stone. This gemstone helps protect you and develop your intuition.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Affirmation Stones




Affirmation Stones

Merry Meet :))) Many of us have probably seen worry stones sold in the stores. They are oval stones with a hole in the middle of them and usually one word on them. The idea is that when you rub them, they will reduce stress. Today's craft is a bit of a spin on that. I came across this picture on pinterest and I thought the stones were so pretty! :))) Many of you know I love my stones. :)) I was unable to find where this picture originated from though unfortunately. 

I love how cute these would look on display in the home. You could keep them in a basket in the kitchen or in the living area. Somewhere where they would be decorative but also a highly visible area so that you will see them every time you walk by. You can even carry one on you if you need a particular affirmation more that day. 

I always recommend collecting stones yourself. I would make this a slow process. Each time you go out on a walk, find one stone that you want to work with. Keep it in your pocket on that walk, and think about what affirmation is most important to you at that time. You may want to hold the stone in your hands to infuse it with the energy of the affirmation you desire as you walk. When you get home write either the entire affirmation or a key word that lets you know what the affirmation is on your stone. Spend some time decorating it, and then add it to your basket. 

In time the basket will accumulate all your affirmations. You will have a visual reminder of the work you have done for yourself, your walks, and a beautiful place to help remind you of how amazing you are. :))))

Mabon Blessings

** original graphic from Cezare-me**


Mabon Blessings! :)))

Merry Meet :))) Today we celebrate Mabon, or the Autumn Equinox. The Autumn equinox is the day that the hours of the day and night are equally divided. Today is one of the last days of harvest and we pay our thanks today for the wonderous blessings we have been given all summer. This Sabbat is also sometimes known as the Second Harves Festival, Wine Harvest, Feast of Avalon, and Cornucopia.

I would be amiss if I didn't mention the changes coming about in the world. Many of you have probably felt the effects of this recent ascension. I know I have and have gone from comfortably moving towards my goals and dreams to being loaded into a slingshot and propelled towards them. This is usually a good thing, and I know once I land back on the ground I will be extremely grateful for these changes that are coming. I walk hand in hand with the Divine following the signs they are so generously giving me and taking huge leaps of faith that everything is going to work out the way it's intended to. So for those of you experiencing the same thing I ask you to try not to worry. When you are spiritual we will often have to walk some tough paths, however the light on the other side of them is amazing and well worth braving those things that give you the sweaty palms and shaking knees. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. When you feel overwhelmed call upon the angels for they will help you to move forward and hold you in your arms when you are afraid.

With all this being said I can't help but bring your attention to the ginormous shifts in energy that are marching us forward. Whatever you have been working on has been harvested and received. We now walk through a bit of cold season, being winter, but you must always remember no matter how things look, the sun is coming right back with us. You are more powerful than you can imagine and you truly can make all your dreams come true, so take my hand and walk with me, and I promise we are going to reach the light of the summer sun once again. :)))))))) Some of you may find that you walk through this period of time with little in the way of challenges, the road may be smooth sailing for you as we march through this :))))) No matter how your path is, you are always loved and supported in all that you do.

In Wicca, today we celebrate our aging Goddess as she moves from the Mother aspect to her Crone aspect. Tonight it's appropriate to wear your finest clothes and celebrate with a bountiful harvest of food. Tonight is we turn the wheel of the year and get ready to head into a period of rest, relaxation and reflection. Tonight is the perfect night to gather and dry your herbs, seeds, and seed pods. Celebrate tonight by taking a wak in the woods. Scatter some offerings for the animals and elementals of the forest on your walk. My son and I filled a cauldron with beautiful fall colored leaves, pinecones, and other little trinkets from the woods. We then added some sliced apples and cinnamon to the mix to make it smell lovely.

Tonight is a night of mysteries. In ritual tonight we honor the aging deities and the spirit world. It's also a night of balance. Stop the world for a little bit of time and enjoy what life has to offer. Enjoy the fruits of your labor throughout the year. Celebrate you and your accomplishments! :)))) When you are doing spellwork or rituals tonight, it is the perfect night to work with protection, prosperity, security, self-confidence, harmony and balance. :)))

Deities of Mabon:
Goddesses: Modron, Morgan, Epona, Persephone, Pamona, and the Muses
Gods: Mabon, Thoth, Thor, Hermes, the Green Man

Symbols of Mabon: Wine, gourds, pine cones, acorns, grains, corn, apples, pomegranates, vines such as ivy, dried seeds, and horns of plenty.

Herbs of Mabon: Acorns, benzoin, ferns, grains, honeysuckle, marigold, milkweed, myrrh, passionflower, rose, sage, solomon's seal, and thistle.

Foods of Mabon: Breads, nuts, apples, pomegranates, potatoes, carrots, and onions.

Incense of Mabon: Autumn Blend - benzoin, myrrh, and sage

Colors of Mabon: Red, orange, maroon, brown, and gold.

Stones of Mabon: Sapphire, lapis lazuli, yellow agates.

Have a Blessed Mabon!!

Love and Blessings,

If you are working with spells today, it’s the day to work with spells for overcoming obstacles, neutralizing harmful energy, binding, and banishing. When working with stones today choose to wear turquoise, labradorite, or diamond for protection. Use amethyst in amulets, and lead in talismans.

Tonight's Moon is Waning, Third Quarter with 91% visibility. The Waning Moon is a time for study, meditation, and little magickal work except magick designed to banish harmful energies. The Waning Moon represents the Goddess in her Crone aspect. It’s a time to celebrate the wisdom gained through life. The next important event for your magickal workings is Mabon or the Fall Equinox on September 22, 2013. 

We begin our day with the Moon void of course as she makes her journey to Taurus. She arrives in Taurus at 6:34 this morning. While the Moon makes her journey, she will be void of course, or between signs. During this time we want to minimize our actions involving anything important. This is a good time to read, relax and exercise. With the Moon in Taurus things begun now last the longest, tend to increase in value, and become hard to alter. It brings out an appreciation for beauty and sensory experiences. The magickal color of the day is Brown and the incense of the day is Patchouli. Have an amazingly magickal day!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Herbs for Handfasting

Herbs for Handfasting

Merry Meet :))))) I have been receiving a lot of questions from several of you getting ready for handfasting ceremonies. :))))))) I'm very excited for all of you. We've been looking at everything from gifts for the loving couple to rituals. I love herbs and I know most of you do as well. :))) Herbs can play a beautiful part in your ceremony. 

Let's look at some herbs and ways to incorporate them into your special day. 

Ivy brings fidelity, friendship and wedding bliss. A perfect place to incorporate this is into the bouquet that you will carry. When your celebration is over make sure you start a plant from the ivy shoot in your home. Ivy is a really hearty plant and you can successfully keep an ivy plant going for years by using the various shoots of the plant. 

Rosemary represents love and faithfulness. It is an ancient custom for brides to add rosemary to their bouquet, this tradition is still quite common today. 

Lavender is for luck, devotion and making wishes come true. I immediately think of the hair. :)))) I love how lavender just looks so romantic, so I can picture loose beautiful hair with sprigs of lavender woven into it. It also smells amazing so would be a wonderful addition to bouquets, centerpieces etc. 

The bride to be often makes a handfasting pillow for that day. You can embroider your names into this pillow. Add herbs like lavender and rosemary to the pillow. 

For the guests that attend the wedding you could send them home with seed packets for lavender and rosemary, or if you have enough time and the means to do so, send them home with baby lavender plants, or even ivy. 

Cinnamon sticks are said to ignite passion. Make some homemade cinnamon lotion for after the wedding for you and your new husband. :))

Ginger is another herb to spice things up ;) Consider adding ginger to a bubble bath after the ceremony is over. :))

Calendula means joy :)) You can hand out little soaps made with it to your guests, place some on the tables as decor, or add some to tea during the celebration.

The possibilities are endless. If you are planning your own ceremony look through pictures of herbs. Write down the ones that catch your fancy then research the herb to find out what it means and what it will attract. Think about all the various aspects of your ceremony and after the ceremony where you can incorporate herbs. Whenever possible make it so the herbs can be used again later, for example keeping them in pots for centerpieces. Much luck and love to all of you :))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Harvest Moon



Harvest Moon

Merry Meet :))) Tonight we celebrate the Full Harvest Moon. Yesterday I received a text on my phone telling me that the first frost was going to be this morning. I couldn't help but think about how suitable the timing was as I ran about harvesting all my herbs before the frost got to them. As I'm writing this, my house smells absolutely amazing as I have herbs hanging from nearly every door and even some bookshelves in the house. :))))) 

The Harvest Moon got it's name for that reason, it's time to Harvest everything. The wheel of the year is turning. Some nights are getting really chilly, and the frost is starting to claim what's left of any crops. So now is the time to harvest anything left and start preparing for the winter that is coming. You may also see this Moon referred to as the Singing Moon or the Wine Moon. 

I know some of you are already starting to get nervous about the upcoming Winter. Today start making preparations and becoming aware of yourself as we move towards winter. Many of us adore being outside and with the cold weather coming it can bring apprehension for the upcoming months. So find things that will make you happy about winter. :))) Start decorating for Samhain early. String additional lights around your house and grab some extra indoor plants to stay close to the sun and extra life that you enjoy during the summertime. Make a special place in your home that you can catch up on your reading. 

Tonights Moon will have the wonderful energy of any full Moon, however astrological alignments make this a bit of an off night. If you any rituals or spells to do I would recommend doing them before 7:15 Eastern standard time as that's when the Moon is in Pisces. That will be a good time for spiritual activities or workings. After that the Moon is void of course in the afternoon and when the Moon is in Aries, your work may not hold up as well as it should. I would take this Full Moon to take care of yourself and prepare for the upcoming season. An early morning meditation enjoying the sunshine and taking a spiritual journey would be perfect. Tonight go out and greet the Moon and enjoy her magickal energy. If it's warm enough tonight to sit outside, consider spending extra time outdoors in the Moonlight. Have a bonfire, and some snacks outside. :))))) 

If the weather holds, I am planning on going out with the little ones tonight on a moonlit hike to have s'mores in the woods :))))) There's something so satisfying about having a fire in the woods at night with s'mores, and coming back with cheeks that are chilly. :))))) I adore this time of the year. :)))) The weather is cool enough so it's quite comfortable going for hikes in the woods. The leaves are all starting to turn, and the woods are starting to have those beautiful shades of gold, red, and yellow. :))) Soon it will be that time of the year I go on as many long drives as I can to take in the beautiful sights here in New England. 
Have a wonderful night! :))))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Divine Bubble Bath



Divine Bubble Bath


Merry Meet :)) I've been reading Messages From Spirit by Colette Baron-Reid. Some of you know that I am a huge fan of hers. She discusses several divination methods in her book. One of them I thought would be nice to share with you today. I've spoken before about how water is naturally grounding for us as empaths. This method involves laying in the tub and relaxing. :)))) Perfect!

You will need a substance to add to the bath that will give it a milk type texture, like a milk bath. Bubble bath will be hard to read because of it's bubbles. You could try oil but you might need too much of it for it to work properly. I just used a basic milk bath, I had an oatmeal and milk one in my stash of bath things that worked perfect. I lit a candle in each corner of my tub and settled in letting the warm water soak over me.

If you have a specific question you wish to ask, ask it before you enter the tub and hold it in your thoughts as you add the milk bath to your bath. Keep it in your thoughts as you swirl the mix into the tub. Most of us will probably want to remain seated while we do this. If you're short like I am you may be able to flip onto your front. :)))) I laid on my front and watched the mixture circle and form in front of me. It reminded me a bit of watching the clouds. Funny enough I remember doing this when I was little a lot! lol :))))

When you are doing this you just want to look for any types of symbols in the water. Try to remember what they are. Write them down when you get out of the tub. I wound up going into a full blown relaxed guided session. I caught the first two pictures and then I relaxed completely and got lots of messages, honestly I sort of forgot about the symbols after a minute or two. :)))) I tend to get my messages like that in my bath or shower more often then not, or right as I'm falling asleep. That is when my mind is quietest.

I do love the fact that this divination method involves water. To me it seems like the perfect marriage. :)))) I hope you enjoy!

P.S. You can add essential oils to your bath as well. :)) I love using lavender and vanilla. :))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Angelite - Stone of the Angels

original graphic from Heavenly Earth Gifts

Angelite -  Stone of The Angels


I absolutely adore Angelite. :))))  Isn't it pretty???? :))))))) The above gemstone, Angelite, is also known as Anhydrite, and is such a peaceful and tranquil crystal to work with. This is a gemstone that I am always attracted to as soon as I go into shops that have gemstones available. I have handled it many times and absolutely adore it. I recently was able to add a piece of Angelite to my gemstone collection from the gemstone show I attended the other month.  This is one of the stones I had on my "want list" for some time.

Angelite is a form of Anhydrite. It's a fairly new gemstone on the holistic scene as it was discovered in Peru in 1987. The most common color is this beautiful bluish gray that you see however it can also come in varying shades of white, blues, grays, and even violet. Whenever I look at this stone I feel like I can see the stars in tiny white flecks in it. I've never seen that mentioned before so I will invite you to take a peek and see what you see. :))))

As one would expect from an "angelic" stone it will enhance your communication with the spirit realms and instill peace and confidence within you. It will help you to connect to the angels and your spirit guides. Angelite will also aid you with meditation, astral voyages, and any other spirit journeys including receiving messages through your dreams. While having a very comforting energy, it's also a very strong healing stone making it a very popular choice for healers.

It's a very balancing stone that can help to take away any psychological pain including anger. It also helps you to become more accepting of yourself and the situations that surround you. When I held this stone and allowed it's energy to take me it had that "peacefully floating among the clouds" feeling to it.

Physically this stone can help reduce inflammation and repair tissue. It can balance the thyroid. Angelite is said to help with any sort of blood deficiencies and can help to renew blood vessels. You can use it to help improve frequent headaches and to help control migraines.

It is very important to note, that this stone cannot go in water.  For cleansing,instead you can allow it to cleanse under the light of the moon, or smudge it with a bit of sage.

Love and Blessings,

Friday the 13th - Let's Make It A Lucky Day :)))

**beautiful graphic by Siya**


Friday the 13th - Let's Make It A Lucky Day!! :))))


Merry Meet :)) How many of you cringed this morning when you saw the date? lol :)))) For some reason, Friday the 13th always is a lucky day for me. Hopefully that will hold true this time round. :)))))

Many of you are probably familiar with the horror movie Friday the 13th. I must confess, I've not watched that one, and don't foresee it anytime soon in my future lol :))) For those of you who may not be, it's a horror film that came out in America around 1980. I do like scary movies, ones about hauntings, paranormal etc, but tend to shy away from gory ones.

This is one of two Friday the 13th's that will occur in 2013. Ironically the next one occurs on Friday, December 13, exactly 13 weeks after today. As I went to write the date this morning, I realized I have absolutely no idea where the superstition for Friday the 13th comes from. So I went out to take a look. :))

I found an absolutely fantastic article on about.com called Why Friday the 13th is Unlucky. They did an amazing job going through the history and superstitions of this date and why the number 13 and Friday are considered unlucky. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I'll give you a moment to go check it out. :)))))))

Ready? Ok so if you weren't nervous about this date before maybe you are now? lol :)) I'm just playing.
Ok so let's break this down a bit using Numerology. Does anyone know what the 13th card of tarot is?

The Death Card. Perfect. :) While seen as a ominous card by many, this card is really representative of much needed change. So while I'm never thrilled to see it show up in a reading, at least it's a very upfront card letting me know that something definitely has to be changed. In numerology the number 13 stands for change and transformation. Most people are afraid of change. However, often, change can bring about good things as well. In order to move forward, we must have change right?

So along with all the hype, negative associations and such about Friday the 13th, I have one basic theory.

If you believe this day is unlucky it will be.

So let's try it out. :))) Today I want you to tell yourself that Friday the 13th is a lucky day for you. This is something I've been doing for years, I honestly think I started it in middle school to be different. I'm not sure, I just know it has worked for me. Power of intention. :)))))) You have the power to make this a lucky day for yourself. :)))) Try it out ;) You may never see Friday the 13th the same again. :)))

Much Love and Many Blessings,
