First visit to this community, and I need some help!

Someone that I care about very much is struggling with some very pressing health issues, including depression, a degenerative condition that causes a great deal of pain in his back/neck, and a heart condition that was causing some frightening flare-ups yesterday.

He's doing everything he can and is seeking medical attention, but I'm genuinely worried for him. Can anyone suggest a potent healing spell that I can do to help him along the way?

Thanks in advance.

Request for Love and Light [31 Jan 2006|07:16pm]

[ mood | worried ]

I am posting this request for Love and Light on behalf of a friend of mine. I've been trying to work on him myself for a number of months now with minimal improvement. I am now asking for help in sending Love and Light and Healing Energy his way.

His name is Jim H and the area I've been trying to work on for him is his left shoulder. He had been out walking his dog (a decent size German Shepherd) one night when the dog pulled hard on his leash, yanking Jim's shoulder. At first it was just a dull ache, and now it's getting stiff to move in certain ways (he can't really lift it above the shoulder-line or do a circle front-to-back). We both think that the work I have done to date has perhaps helped keep it from getting any worse, but it hasn't helped him heal.

That's where we're turning to you for help. And mobility is important to his job as a Security Officer. Send your Healing Energy and all your Love and Light and anything else positive his way please. We would both appreciate it.

Please, if you have any thoughts on what else I could do to help him, please either answer this post direct, or you can contact me at healing_jim@yahoo.com

Thank you everyone!

Brightest of Blessings to you All!

my intro [20 Sep 2005|10:34pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Good evening everyone.
I'm a [soon-to-be] former New York State EMT. I've been fascinated by medicine and healing since I was very young. I haven't worked as an EMT in quite a while due to an accident I had a couple of years ago.

Anyway, with my license expiring soon, I find myself longing to get back into a career involving medicine again. My back isn't in the shape it used to be, so I've been considering the possibility of returning to school for Nursing.
I was wondering if there were any nurses or nursing students here; it would be nice to have someone in this profession who follows a similar spiritual path. Thanks for your time.

Requesting Help [06 Sep 2005|03:39pm]

[ mood | worried ]

I am asking for all of you to send some extra Love & Light toawrds New Orleans area. Do your spells, your chants, say your prayers and rosaries, whatever you do best please!

I work for a private ambulance company in Illinois. Five of my coworkers have taken two rigs and gone south to help out in the relief efforts, etc. I do not know if they've had any preparation for this trip and all that they could possibly encounter (which is nothing remotly close to what we'd see here in the private sector).

I have done my magick, and will continue to do so each day that they are gone (the length of the stay is not clear right now) and until they are home safe. I am asking for help in sending strength and protection their way.

Please keep Barry, Ryan, Tim, Kristen, and Todd in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank You!!

Brightest of Blessings to you and yours.

Always & All Ways,

Mixing & Pain [26 Aug 2005|01:15am]

[ mood | frustrated ]

I have quite a few questions, and i did search the database and memories first, so please bear with me.

First i am planing on taking both Flax-seed oil and Primrose oil everyday. I haven't seen either way so i wanted to ask if anyone knew if there was a bad effect in mixing them (Also i take 100mgs of B-6 everyday already). I also wondered if there were any trust worthy online shops i can get them in pill form (only place close to me only sells herbs not pills or tinctures)

I also have a lady problem for which the doctors put me on vicodon and other such pain killers. Since my family has a history of addiction and i hate being retarded everytime i have to take them i was wondering if there were any pain rememdies anyone knew to be tried and true. I'm alergic to onions and spiders but that's it. And i can't remember anything i've had a bad reaction to. I've been trying things for a long time now and am willing to do almost anything to make it stop.

Thanks for your help

What do you think of the FAR infrared saunas for Lymes Disease? [24 Aug 2005|12:00pm]

I discovered that you can buy a FAR infrared sauna for about 200 now. It's portable. I have found all kinds of testimonials from people who say it's helped their Lymes, but they are all at websites where someone wants you to buy their sauna.

Has anyone here had experience with a FAR infrared sauna? Did it help? Hurt? Was it a waste of money and time? What about using it with Lymes & Fibro Myalgia?

I am a healer.  I heal.  I want to heal.  I enjoy healing.  I've never facilitated a dramatic/miraculous healing (yet), that's fine, little healings are good too.  But I can't seem to heal me.  EFT, Reiki, Reconnective Healing, creative visualization.............nothing is working on ME.  Any advice?  I have great need of physical healing right now.  Spiritually I'm in a great place, I don't know why I'm hitting this wall.

Magick at work... [20 May 2005|09:48pm]

[ mood | busy ]

So, awhile back I had some trouble at work with a coworker... he and I just did not get along... it was beyond loathing one another... my intuition would scream anytime I was within 5 feet of him... and AJ wasn't exactly fond of me either. For the first time in 3 years I requested to not work with someone ever no matter what. But somehow just asking to be kept away from him didn't seem to be enough... so...

I did what I could on the non-magickal realm... then, just for extra protection I created a spell. Now, for as much as I'd rather just banish this jackass to hell and back a time or two, I can't. So, instead, I wrote it so that his own energy would/will turn back on himself. Please let me know what you think of it. Thanks... here it is:

Lord and Lady protect me
From all harm seen and unseen.

At this time, within this hour,
I call upon The Trickster's Power.
Coyote and Loki, Heyokah too,
Hear me as I call to you.

Aid my magick - both guard and guide,
Let its aim be true - may he not hide.
Help teach him the lessons he must learn,
Within his own energy let him churn.

Bide the Wiccan Rede ye must,
In Perfect Love, In Perfect Trust.
Live ye must and let to live,
Fairly take and fairly give.

Ever mind the Rule of Three,
What ye send forth comes back to thee.
Three times bad or three times good,
Upon you fall as well it should.

Within a mirrored bubble thou shalt be,
That your actions reflect to affect only thee.
Protection for all your mirrored bubble lend,
From any negativity you cause, it will defend.

When of yourself you have had enough,
Either thou shalt bend, not be so tough -
By the rules you shall learn to play,
Or choose not to return another day.

By Karmic Law of Number Three,
This spell now tied and knotted be.
That it's contents stay together,
And cannot harm human, beast, or weather.

As I will,
So Mote It Be!

I know the rhythm isn't the best, but the words pretty much wrote themselves... by the third touch-up, it felt right. It seems to have worked fairly well... I have since found out he can only work so many hours or he loses his financial student aid so for the few hours he can work, my boss has done a good job of keeping us on opposite days. Today was the first day I've seen him in a few months and we didn't even say a word to one another... suits me just fine. And it seems a few other people chimed in with their opinions about him once they found out I'd said something to the two higher-up bosses... so he's got a few complaints against him now, not just mine.

Okay, that's all... I pray everyone has been safe and happy. Brightest of Blessings to you all!!!

Soaps and Bath stuff...... [19 May 2005|05:49pm]

I make herbal bath products, gylcerin soaps, bath salts, etc. I went to a festival and it rained tons......some of my product was in the rainy area and the labels got wet. The product is fine, but the labels look terrible. I'm preparing to go to another couple of festivals and need to make room. I thought I'd offer them up here at 1/2 price.

I finally did it... [21 Apr 2005|09:23pm]

[ mood | happy ]

Well, I finally had a situation (well, a for a second time actually) where I felt the strong urge to use a spell on a patient...

It was actually a few months back when the weather was still really crappy here in good old Chi-Town. The Pt was actually a DNR, but still, I didn't want him coding in the back of my rig while I was with him. I could only remember part of the spell I wanted to use, so I pulled out my Palm Pilot and pulled it up from the file I had it saved on just in case. The one I used was out of a Silver RavenWolf book (can't remember which one anymore) I modified it a little bit... I substituted ArchAngel Raphael for Aradia but left the rest the same. This is the spell I used:

Chant For All Emergency Medical Situations

Aradia walked before (the person's name)
and She saw (person's name)
lying in blood and pain.
She spoke and said: Thou shalt live, thou shalt live, thou shalt live
And it was done.
In the name of the Maiden, Mother, and Crone.
And the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
So mote it be.

It seemed to have worked because his V/S started to return to his normal area and his breathing picked back up. Most of all it made me feel calmer too. I could feel Raphael surround the rig to protect us as we traveled the still really snowy roads into downtown. Good thing Raphael is the ArchAngel for travellers too! :-)

Well, there you have it. Has anyone else had to do something like that?? If so, please, feel free to share as much as you're comfortable with.

Blessed Be!

Healing Spell [20 Mar 2005|07:23pm]

Hello All!! I practice wicca and only use spells for very important matters. Recently, I've had some health problems. I been doing a lot of vizulization, meditation and chakra balancing but I'd like a little extra boost with a spell. I've never written a healing spell for myself and I'm not really sure where to start. Does anyone have any tips, ideas, suggestions or their own spells to share? I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

RRRRR... [15 Feb 2005|09:16pm]

[ mood | worried ]

I have two problems one a relative of mine has really bad headaces that center around her face. Shes been in and out of doctors and cat scan and other fun stuff but no one really knows whats wrong with her. so she finnally came to me and asked if i could do something to just mask or relax the symtems. The only thing i can think of is a pepermint tea with spearement, lavendar kava kava and white willow. (worked very well on my sinus headaches) Any better suggestions?

the other is that usually im a very calm unagressive person. and if i really need to calm down i make myself some chamomile,catnip,rose, and jasmine tea (more then just tastey) unfortunitly a person that i have recently been forced to have more or less regular contact with (once every week and a half or so) and under the circumsdances losing it is not an option. I had a real problem with that when i was a kid and have greatly calmed down due to meditation and my teas but this is not helping now and i dont know what to do.

First EMS Related Question... [16 Oct 2004|03:13pm]

[ mood | curious ]

Merry Meet!

The biggest question I'm wanting to ask is have you ever found yourself wanting to use a spell in the back of the ambulance with a really bad patient??

I once T/P a guy who was bleeding really badly from his dialysis shunt and the nursing home staff managed to give him heparin! He only took about 3 minutes to completely bleed through a trauma dressing... I so badly wanted to use a blood-stopping charm I knew, but wasn't sure if it was ethical or not so I didn't... but boy did I want to... what would you have done? I'm just so curious as to what someone else would have done in that situation...

Till next time... Merry Part and Brightest of Blessings!

does anyone know how to cure lower back pain.

i am not sure how i did it. i have a knot of the left side of my back. it could be hip related.

i carry my 28 lb, 32in long younge daughter around all the time and rock her to sleep a lot which could have caused it.
i am not sure if its a pulled muscle or pinched nerve. but its been hurry for about 4 days now to wear its hard to stand up and walk.

my mom did give me 2 muscle relaxers yesterday which really helped a lot so i figure its muscle.

Warning: Rosemary can kill ! [26 Jul 2004|10:04am]

OK, as I got some more feedback from more people about wormwood being poisonous, I double checked in the Physician Desk Reference (PDR) for medicinal herbs.

Wormwood (artemisia absinthium): should be taken in small quantities and not over extended periods of time. e.g. they mention no more than a few tea cups per day. I use only a pinch or two and so far 3-4 times a week for just a few weeks. In excess, wormwood can cause diziness, nausea, vomitting, headaches,...

Rosemary: should also be taken in small (homeopathic) quantities, no more than a few tea cups per day. Leaves should not be eaten in large quantities. Actually Rosemary is more dangerous than wormwood, as the PDR writes that eating large quantities of Rosemary will cause vomitting, internal (stomach?) bleeding, etc... and eventually can cause DEATH!

Mugwort: I did not find any side effects for that one. But I'll check again next time.

All these should always be taken in "homeopatic" quantities, that is, for example, enough to make a cup of tea (not eaten in salad as a main dish!). And also all these herbs should not be taken by PREGNANT WOMEN. Rosemary is even sometimes believed to induce abortion!!!!

The Magic Dream Potion - an update. [20 Jul 2004|02:26pm]

AFter more experimenting with all the herbs I found that the following potion helps me remember my dreams, quite well:

- a few teaspoon of Mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris)
- a 6" long piece of Rosemary
- a pinch or two of Wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium)

Drop all these in a mug, add boiling water and let infuse for 20 min. Add some sweetener (honey or suggar) to counter the bitterness of the wormwood and drink before going to sleep. With that I can remember at least one dream in the middle of the night and all my dreams in the morning (though I might have to write them down).

BTW, Red, I could not find where to get Calea Zacatechichi...

What works and what doesn't ? [22 Jun 2004|09:12am]

I have tried a few different herbs to induce vivid dreams and supposedly astral travel too, but it seems mostly without success.

Mugwort (artemisia vulgaris). Mugwort is known as one of the magical herbs (of the saxons?) and is mentioned almost every where to induce vivid dreams and more. I tried it as a tea with some dried mugwort several times. It did not seem to have any particular effects. I tried it with fresh leaves that i am growing at home - nothing. I tried it as a "dream pillow", where you put some herbs in a little pillow case - nothing!

I have also tried rosemary as it is supposed to increase memory and help remember dreams. It seems to work slightly better than the mugwort. I tried it as a tea and also by putting some rosemary plants in pots next to my bed.

I have tried other plants that helps to relax and induce sleep, and they seem to work: valerian roots, chamomille, catnips, etc...

Concerning the dreams and the memory, I even tried pills of melatonin and it does not seem to have any noticeable effect on me.

I have had the feeling that what works best is actually not the plants we are using but our disponibility of the mind. When I think and I concentrate to have vivid dreams and I autosuggestion myself, it seems that it works best, without any respect to which herb I use. The same for relaxing. I can cut the coffee and drink all kind of relaxing herbs, but if someone upsets me for some particular reason I will get upset no matter what. On the other side if I don't drink any herb, but drink coffee, but I do have a nice day, then I'll be clam and relax.

So, I am not sure how all these works. Probably these plants are "helper", but basically it is up to our mind to go all the way to where we want to go, whether it is about having vivid dreams or about relaxing.

What does work for you?
