Truths appear in drips, streams, flows and pours. Drinking from the fountains of truth holds pleasures and benefits galore. Yep, truths poured in and truths poured out -- to constructively share. Truths sure can favorably do our lives well.

Initially, truths don’t always please our thirsty appetites. Often, though, when we allow them to rest in soak formation, to marinate and then to sink in thoroughly, our thirsts are satisfyingly quenched. Acceptance of truths adds to successful accomplishments of our action plans -- with relish.

Certainly, digesting truth proves good for our systems.

Native Herbs

Hi -

About a month ago, I had a FaceBook chat with a metaphysical guy from Arabia. He shared this with me relative to Sage usage:

“We don’t use Sage. We use Frankincense. It works better in Africa and Arabia based on the vibration of the land. It's best to cleanse because it's part of the land being indigenous.”

I then asked him this question, “Oh, Frankincense is indigenous to Africa and Arabia?”

He responded:

“Yes it's in Yemen and Oman and Ethiopia, Somalia.”


After my chat with him, I went to do some research about herbs that are indigenous to America since I was born on American soil.

So far, I found some herbs native to America, info below. Presently, I have the White Sage, and plan to get the American Ginseng, Sweet Grass, and Black Cohosh.

Yes, his statement, repeated below, really resonated with me.

He expressed: “We don’t use Sage. We use Frankincense. It works better in Africa and Arabia based on the VIBRATION of the LAND. It's best to cleanse because it's part of the land being indigenous.”


It got me wondering how my usage of herbs native to America will VIBRATE WITH THIS LAND when I use it. It’s VERY striking that I learned that from him. I’m deeply grateful.

I’ll still use other herbs NOT native to America, but I sure plan to include more native to America herbs in my collection.

Note: Of course, magickally, we can manifest for any herb to vibrate wherever . . . but you get my drift . . .

White Sage is native to America -- Southwestern -- and Mexico.

Some of the Sweet Grass is native to America.

Three other native herbs that I found info about so far:

Black Tea, Oolong Tea, Rooibos Tea

Hi -

I've been drinking black tea for more than a month.  Today, for the first time, I decided to drink it without sugar.  I noticed that it's better that way.

Well, lo and behold, after drinking some black tea, I looked up info about it.  The article -- link below -- recommends drinking it without additives such as milk and sugar. I just started THAT practice this morning -- no sugar added -- BEFORE I read the subject article.

Wow, the benefits of black tea are considerably healthy and helpful!

Sea Shells

Hi -

I took a bath with some sea shells the other night.

If you're inclined, and don't live near where you can collect shells from beaches -- "The Dollar Tree" sells them as does "Michael's Crafts."

Mojo bags

Hi -

Mojo bags

I enjoyed reading the subject article, link below, about mojo bags.  I used SOME of what it suggested.  Otherwise, my own unique desires were used, as well.

I just made my first mojo bag about a month ago. Nothing fancy. I used one of those velvety drawstring jewelry bags.

I HIGHLY recommend using them.  I'm a LIVING WITNESS that they work.  Of course, other things in our metaphysical practices need to consistently align with universal rhythm.  But INDEED, for those who are fervent about spirituality -- mojo bags should sure be in the practices!!!    

The first one that I made was a protection mojo.

In it:
Garlic powder
Rosemary herb
A sea shell
A Baphomet ring
Small black Onyx crystal
Small clear Quartz
A dime
A penny
A piece of copper

I made my second one -- ultra joy, ultra peace, ultra contentment -- on the New Moon in Dec.

In it:
A sea shell
A small Carnelian crystal
Two dimes
Two pennies
A small piece of copper/ whole cloves/basil, a small piece of stainless steel in a tiny bottle of water
A small clear Quartz
