Herbal knowledge

Recommended Posts

Ive only recapped 3 times and am seeing some rather aurprising results. Tonight will be my fourth and first nighttime (and cold lol) recap. I have a lot of negative energy coming at my family and a curse object I need to figure out what to do with. I feel a sense of urgency to do this obviously and am working on more than recapitulation although it is helping a great deal and in many ways, not the least of which is maintaining my energy.

My question here is about herbs. What herbs have helped in what way for you guys. Of course I can get this information from other sources but in my experience the most legitimate work goes on here and I would value any advice. Even a short list or a link to a previous similar post would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Hi Ticklebits,

 

I really like to use liquid valerian root as a matter of personal choice for my own physical well being and specific needs, but it's nothing to do with the maker tradition in the sense you are asking.There really aren't any specific herbs used in the maker tradition, although I know that a lot of medicinal shamanism incorporates herbs into their practices. I do think all plants have their specific properties and affect the human body. There's also a maker here who is an herbalist and incorporates the use of herbs in her healing practices to create homeopathic remedies based on her knowledge of their properties. But from where I'm standing in the tradition, she is aligning her own personal intent with the intent of herbs to help people with their physical and mental well being.

 

I hope this makes sense. If you feel that you are picking apart and are up against a family curse, you can work to unravel your energetic connection to it and recap really is a great place to start because it helps to heal your energy and stand free in the world. One thing about feeling negative energy directed at you: try not to stand where it can find you. If you don't agree to the negativity you perceive, you don't agree to it being in your life. I think that's where recap really comes in and helps one detach.

Thanks for answering. I think I just get overwhelmed by the information out there and want to use whatever I can to the best of my ability. My family tells me that I have a glowing presence and can put a positive spin on anything or make anyone feel better just by being around. Its strange to hear because I dont always feel that way but I certainly try. I have rather dangerous people to keep away from my family though and already live in hiding as much as I can. If I didnt have the faith I do in my protection Id probably be much worse off. I like the Maker tradition because it is down to its roots (or our roots I should say, as people) which is one reason I was nvr attracted to these "Go spend 400$ at an occult shop, dress up and youre a witch" type practices. Im scandinavian and I pray to scandinavian gods and occasionally interact with local spirits and befriend local trees. I guess I just have a habit of feeling like I can always do more for my family. We have a lot of hard times and are constantly persued but protected. Anyway, thanks for the encouragement:) Im excited to see what a solid month of recap feels like.

Hi Ticklebits,

 

As Mandy said, there are no specific herbs used in the Maker tradition. When you come up against something that you're struggling with be it in recap or in your body, then herbs are one tool that can be utilised to either provide perspective or to show your body, or your energy, how to maneuver through something. That's vague, I know :). But basically, everything in the natural world has an 'energy' to it. Like a fingerprint, or a specific colour or a music note. I happen to use plants because I like plants. But there are any number of things out there that have an energy that would help in certain situations. It depends on what you're going through, what your body needs in the moment. And it can change all the time. Herbs don't really work in a one-size-fits-all fashion, so there are no herbs for recap, let's say, simply because each one of us is so different and we come up against different things.

Thanks Rebecca. I guess I just find myself discouraged lately. Ive even gotten some unusual things happening since I began recapping. After three recaps I tried to sleep only to have a line of what I can only guess spirits of the dead (living?) catch me right before unconsciousness and line up to ask me things. Most of them had no real questions actually as I recall and seemed happy just to speak with me. I remember things like this being scarier as a kid but this was like ghosts waiting politely in line at the DMV.Only most of them seemed rather excited and even happy. I remember trying to stay conscious (or whatever) to get to as many of them as I could.

Admittedly, Im frustrated. My family is in real danger all the time and I put forth a lot of energy consciously and subconsciously warding off attacks from the worst kind of people you can imagine...plus a few other idiots with ill intent.My physical life makes it harder. Ive spent my whole life struggling in almost every way imaginable. I feel like I need a break but that feeling is only met with knowledge that I must work harder and be stronger. I dont mean to dump all of this here or on you personally of course; Im just discouraged and must work through it.

Thank you so much for your thoughts though. My sister really loves rocks and stones. I imagine she will do great things with them. I have an easy time empathizing and forming bonds with trees and bugs. I love water and have looked into how water reacts to emotion and such (Masaru Emoto). Im pretty set on the path I walk but I keep pulling runes that refer to "a blockage." I pray most for clarity and try to read every day like a cryptic poem. I just dont feel like Im doing everything i can and should be.

Hello again.

 

Just thought to tell you what I'm seeing: maybe your feelings that "you're not doing everything you can and should be" is a way your energy is using to tell you that the totality of you wants to grow and be more than you are now. Don't see it as a judgmental thing you should feel guilty about, but as an opportunity. Sometimes we speak to ourselves and push ourselves in ways we don't understand at the time, but in hindsight we look back and see that the moments of pain are really moments of growth. Maybe this is an opportunity for growth, a new path your energy wants to walk. You should explore that and see where it takes you on your journey.

 

Rocks are amazing. Did you know that each stone, in addition to being its own self, is also a small part of the greater intent of this whole big living rock we live on? Stones are pretty cool as natural elements, just as trees (wood) are.

I take no insult at all and I certainly can be more than I am, and I want to be, and I will be. Im stuck at a bit of a low point in my life. Financially stymied and worth zero dollars. The father of my son has consistently thrown my loyalty in the garbage over nearly six years of me defending him (even when his actions were indefensible) and loving him in spite of unending attacks on my self and soul. I had to draw a line in the sand. He wasnt very good to me and I let so much slide because of his unimaginably horrific upbringing and because I knew from the start that hed have issues. Then two yrs in we had our son and it became about that too. The last thing I ever wanted was to be a single mom. I grew up in a ghetto neighborhood, in a weird ghetto city, only-white-girl-in-the-projects style and wanted to escape all of the statistics girls coming from here are subject to. But after the the better part of a decade and my adult youth I feel drained, my self esteem... Well i feel like a doormat that says "sorry" instead of "welcome" and thats not me at all. Its a fork in the road Ive struggled over for a while.

I did successfully contain the curse object on dark moon. I kept it simple and the air/aura in our home is noticeably (to everyone even without any prompting) lighter. I feel like I am growing. Im seeing successes. Im seeing power Ive known Ive had inside me since I was a child come to fruition and it feels good.

Also, i forgot, i think, to mention that Ive always been very drawn to water which for obvious reasons is very helpful. You can have 8 jars of water that all feel different and have different purposes. I used some infused water in the ritual which I think helped.

Hi Tickelbits

 

I wanted to join in here and say that the best and most lasting solution to changing the dynamic of feeling drained of feeling like a doormat (either a 'sorry' or 'welcome' one) of the living, the dead and the energetic beings taking from you, either by asking for your help in a way that drains you or by attempting to work against you through dark practices - the best, way at this point, is still the recapitulation.

 

The reason you are where you are right now, is a result of not only who you were when you came into this world but more importantly, the events in your life you have lived through. In other words, you have created your life, not by active choice but by your reactions. I want to be clear, although I am saying that you are responsible for where you are right now, I'm not blaming you or think you should blame yourself or that others did not do you harm or wrong. But if you can get to a place where you see how the flow of your life events brought you to where you are today, that empowers you to let go of what is not serving you and start creating the life you want.

 

 

So what that means with the Recap, is that you have to be ruthless, like a detective on a case or a hound on a trail, and track down all the places you have trapped energy. This means tracking down, back to birth all the twists and turns your life has taken, all the events, now there as memory but not 'just' memory, they still are very much alive with the original feelings and emotions that happened in the moment. Go back to them and take your energy back with the recap movement until they are just memories, with no emotional pull or sting when you recall them.

 

I know this is a lot, it takes a long time to go through it all but I don't think anyone ever regrets the time they spend on recapping. If you are looking for a key place to start, I would recap your ex., the father of your son but don't recap your son, he needs you still and needs to have the connection with you. You can recap your sister, even though she depends upon you as she is an adult, although you may want to wait a bit as it will change your relationship with her. you'll know when it's right.

 

If you go after your healing like this, as a warrior, determined to get back your energy from wherever it's been tied up, you will one day be amazed how your life has changed. Sometimes it's quick and sometimes it's gradual but most people are stunned that it can really change for real. I think many people feel that life is put upon them and they are helpless because it's out of their control. It's not and you can really get back to the you you were when you came into this world and be empowered to create the life you want. I believe you can do it, I hear it in your voice, you are willing to do what you need to change, that's really the hardest part, most people aren't willing to change even though they are miserable.

Thank you so much for saying that and everything else amd I apologize for not replying sooner. Things have gotten pretty wacky around here. I could probably move if I really wanted to but I feel like ita my duty to stay here. Ive learned so much about who and what I am in the year Ive lived here than in most single years or maybe it just feels that way because what Ive learned has been intense. Questions Ive held in my heart since a child have been answered.

I have recapped certain aspects of my relationship with my sons father. It is best for us both and I have suggested he do the same.

I will be taking the recapitulation self healing class in march. The trees have been reaching out to me.. Showing me things. It is a long story. I feel fear in a way Im very unfamiliar and uncomfortable with but I am pushing on. Ive been educating myself and keeping confidence in my protectors and in my own power.

I look forward to this class and feel like it will help me a lot.
