Health and Healing
This simple and easy to make medicine bag is specifically for, and said to especially provide relief for seizure disorders. Here’s how to make it:
- Gather Vervain when the sun and/or moon are in Aries.
- Carry the botanical in a bag with a kernel of corn or a piece of grain, plus a one year old penny or other coin of trivial value.
Tonic waters containing the energies of the moon embody very powerful healing benefits that bring about integral balance and wholeness throughout the body, mind and soul. Clear quartz crystal catalyses the absorption of lunar energies as well as amplifies the healing benefits.
Wait for a clear night, preferably on or right before the full moon. Put your crystal in a clear glass and cover with one cup of purified water. Check an almanac for the exact time of sundown on the day you have chosen.
At sundown, place the glass out of doors in a moonlit place (cover the glass with clear plastic wrap). Remove the glass at dawn. The water is now filled with lunar potency. Drink the moon water every morning to prepare your body, mind and spirit for the stress of the day.
