Personal Mentorship with Susun Weed – What’s Science Got to do with It?

Once upon a time, healing was considered an art. Healing was understood by all to be a complex interaction between the patient, the healer, the community of living people, the communities of the plants and animals (and insects and rocks and fish), the communities of the non-living people (such as ancestors, spirit guides, and archetypes) … Continue reading Personal Mentorship with Susun Weed – What’s Science Got to do with It?

Thank you to my fairy godmother…. (#herbalism, #goodwitcheshomestead, #herbaljourney)

My Herbal Adventures...

Do you have a fairy godmother? Someone who appears all of a sudden over & over just when you need her most. Well I never thought a magical woman with kindness, good tidings & the wisdom of a fairy godmother would manifest in my life, but it seems one has. It is an honor to have been found and supported by this amazing woman who is a natural born herbalist and has all the knowledge and credentials to make me feel that there is not enough of my lifetime left to catch up to her wisdom. Yet, she has chosen to be a guide, an advocate & a friend to me from miles and miles away. I have never met her face to face, but hopefully someday I can. Luckily, the internet and its ways of connecting us through the various social media outlets, especially blogging, have led me to…

Spring Equinox Rituals: Rituals of Looking Back and Looking Forward

The Druid's Garden

Sometimes, when we are hiking on a trail, we are in a hurry to get somewhere–that far off vantage point, that mile marker on the map, or just seeing what is over the next horizon. I remember hiking with some friends who regularly backpacked; they were so intent on speeding through the woods to their goal and putting the miles behind them that they  left me behind at multiple points as I got off the trail to explore something. This “speeding towards a goal” is, perhaps, part of who we are as humans, and certainly, a product of Western Civilization, which is so growth and progress oriented.  Even with our spiritual practice, we can be so intent on focusing on a goal (that next grade or degree, for example) that we forget about the journey itself.  On this trail, the day I took this photo, my intuition told me to…

Can Four-Leaf Clovers Bring More Than Luck?

Good Witches Homestead

Saint Patrick’s day is filled with four-leaf clovers signifying good luck, however, clovers also attract Fairies and their Magick. Clovers can serve as protection from them, they are able to break their Spells and if a four-leaf clover is worn correctly it will allow you to spot invisible fae. As a word of advice, should you encounter the Fae, always proceed with caution, they are mesmerizing but it could come at a price.

While there are many types of “clovers” out there, the most well-known have flowers of the white and red varieties. These are the ones most commonly used in Magickal workings. White Clover is most often used in work against hexes, while Red Clover is used for many Spells including love, fidelity, and success. The flower is not the only part used. Four-leaved clovers are considered especially lucky and can be used to lead the owner to…
