Let's Not Forget our WWII POW'S

My husband came home the other day from work and was telling me about a man he met who had been a POW in the Japanese POW Camp during WWII. It's amazing because out of 20,000 prisoners only 200 were left at the end of the war. The following is a link to their stories.

Monas Hieroglyphica

Monas Hieroglyphica (or Hieroglyphic Monad)is an esoteric symbol designed by John Dee, who was the court magician to Elizabeth I of England. The word monad itself was used early on to mean "one" or "ultimate". As a philosophy, and this is a very simplistic explanation as the philosophy itself is much more complex, it is an indivisible or impenetrable substance that is the basis for all reality. (And yes, that is my very simplistic view of it which I state up front).

What led me on this search was a symbol I saw in the advertisements for a new movie coming out in which the symbol looks remarkably similar to Dee's Monas Hieroglyphica. From what I have read for myself Dee's symbol is a combination of the cross, moon, sun, and Aries. Interestingly when the numerology is done for this particular symbol, according to Catherine Beyer, you get the number 7 the number of God or favored by God. Though as we know there are 72 names for God.

It is for me something I am still studying but it is an interesting symbol none the less. For my ceremonial magicians I know this description is very short and does not due justice to the work of Dee.

Golden Seal

It can be daunting when standing in the market looking at rows and rows of herbal supplements. For certain, I've had my share of dazed moments where I was so overwhelmed, taking a supplement seemed like too much work. The more I began to research online the more confident I became in approaching the lifestyle of using herbal supplements to help with ailments. Golden Seal is a must have for anyone's cabinet. It's mother nature's antibiotic. My first exposure to Golden Seal was when my six year old came down with pink eye and we were without insurance. I did a quick check online to see if there was anything we could do though I was skeptical because as a teacher I knew just how quickly this spreads from child to child at the elementary age. I came across a description of how to make a Golden Seal eye wash. Well, when you are without insurance and need a child well enough to attend school it was worth a shot. The worst that could happen was that it would not do a thing other than maybe take away some of the discharge. We followed the instructions for making the eye wash which amounted to boiled distilled water mixed with two capsules (emptying the capsules into the water to dissolve), letting the water cool to room temperature, and washing out the eye with three drops in each eye. The excess could be kept in a sterile container in the refrigerator for follow up washes. Four to perhaps six doses later the eye was completely cured in two days. He has not had an issue with pink eye since then.

As for using it for other ailments when the winter flu was going around I took Golden Seal using the recommended dose and kept away from the flu bug this year. I am allergic to the flu vaccine so I will say that this helped me a great deal.

As with any herbal routine always check with your physician first or consult with an herbalist or herb certified page.

Blessed Valentine's Day

"Rose Garden" Fresh Cut Flower Bouquet - Mixed Bouquets (Google Affiliate Ad)

Blessed Valentines Day my loves. Do not forget to let your special someone know that you love them. Flowers hold a great many messages and each has their own special message. Of course, my favorite are Orchids which symbolize death but death is not often a bad thing. In the tarot it symbolizes a rebirth, an opportunity for change. Be love today and always my dears.
