Journey to the Peppermint or Should I Say Hail to the Peppermint

by Natasha Botkin 

Peppermint

Not sure if I should call this journey or hail to the peppermint.  You see, I began to notice that I was being called to enjoy peppermint.  I found pure delight in my organic facial wash of rosemary and mint.  Next, I found myself enjoying peppermint leaves probably in ninety percent of my beverages.  One day as I took a nourishing soul bath, lined up was peppermint galore, even peppermint tea – aromas of pure delightfully wafting through every orifice.  My body happily cleansing and clearing the mucus, digestive concerns and inflammation that had built up.

Now I am not saying that there is anything wrong or dislike with this; what, I am saying is, my wise heart and soul knew that I needed the healing qualities of peppermint.  I was in a toxic work environment and peppermint called out to me in many ways; beauty, eating and healthcare.

As I began to release the negative toxins, my body pleaded for a natural, healthy, soothing manner upon which to heal.  Peppermint answered the call.  Oh thank goodness peppermint not only answered; I also adore peppermint.  In fact when my peppermint essential oil ran out, I felt a moment of pouting.

Peppermint was a favorite healing component of the ancient Egyptians; they were quite advanced in their diagnoses and treatments of various illnesses. For me and others who need it, peppermint is a great healing benefit.

Here are many different uses for peppermint: 

Pure peppermint leaf can used for more than just tea.  Peppermint tea hot or cooled is wonderful for an upset stomach or digestive concerns.  This can help reduce and/or soothe stomach acids and gas, aid in a nauseated stomach and help ease the flow of bile to be more productive. Individuals with  IBS have stated they are relieved with the help of powerful peppermint.

It is good for relaxing nerves and improving circulation.  This can also aid the body with inflammation that can hide in the  body.  Inflammation is pesky and the peppermint can sneak up and soothe it.  Awww, my tired sore muscles needed this.  I should also add, that I have partial nerve paralysis in part of my body.  A quick dab of peppermint essential oil mixed into my lotion and creating a salve, can help with the pain that is caused with the malfunctioning nerves.  peppermint oil

It can be an antiseptic and antibacterial that can cool your skin and/or scalp (possibly helping with those pesky dry flakes).

Hence the lining of the bathtub of peppermint products; whether they were created or I created them myself.  I am notorious for creating herbal salves, oils and such.   I would recommend a true organic peppermint essential oil as not all oils are created equal.

Peppermint was a beautiful savior for me the first few weeks of healing and detoxing.  

May you enjoy the benefits of peppermint.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

goddess heart

It all began with an email, I looked at it and went what, is this a joke?  A dear soul I adore wrote me something that made no sense.  I stepped back and asked for the divine feminine wisdom deep within me to herald forward.

Did the answer show right away? No, in fact,  another bizarre email appeared, same sender. Archangel Michael, please help, what is this?  Why am I being given these details?  Then another email from another that held bits and pieces of truth…

Again, I felt lost.  Why is this happening?  I have so much to contend with as of late, please no more.

My heart holds incredible wisdom.  I turned to my inner goddess, show me, give me signs, symbols, help me.  One by one the signs showed, the symbols arrived.  My heart opening up fun bits and pieces.

Then an article breezed my way and the words “magical new beginnings” appeared.  My heart, she began to sing and hum; I chimed into my intuition.  I stopped and listened to the gentle rain and birds singing so sweetly.  Read with care dear one, answers lie within.  I began to read this article and each word, sentence, began to answer what my heart knew; listen to my heart.

I sat there happy, internally dancing.  Victory! Score! One for Natasha’s Heart!  The motion was put forth, go with the flow; a heart full of truth and great love. Me singing to Luna, oh thank you, thank you, thank you!!  Perfect timing with the full moon!!  

What happened next was pure sweetness!  A tarot card that read Cancel, Clear, Delete. Archangel Michael saying, “Only use positive thoughts.”  I knew, what this meant, the past month has been intense!  I recently had lupines dance my way to remind me of “positive thoughts,” and now all of this love from the angels, fairies, goddess’, luna, mother gaia, solia, Mother Mary and Mary Magdalene.  I am so graciously and magically blessed!!

My heart knows its truth and those who wish to sidetrack me, so not happening!  My heart wins a victory!!  I say to myself, “That a girl!  You KNOW your stuff!” Magical Blessings Business card logo

Happy May-Day!

May Day Flowers 2015

May-day has always been a special kind of day for me.  I absolutely adore nature, and flowers are a special gift for us all to enjoy.  As a child, you could find me just before May Day in the park or at home, creating May Day Flowers.

Now how I went about it was also quite whimsical.  One never knew if they would receive a yellow dandelion or a dandelion puff to make a magical wish.

Then I would take these special smiles from the fairies, and run up to someone’s door, place it at the door, ring the doorbell and giggle while running away.  I always thought that I was so sneakily clever, only to discover from a neighbor that she loved my special gifts over the years..  As she put it, “dear you were giggling away with such delight, no one had the heart to tell you; you did bring so much joy to those who always needed it; it’s like you knew who needed it the most.”  Awww, my eyes were filled with wonderful tears, and here to think I thought that I was so spry; oh well it is the thought that counts.

May you receive a special gift of love this May Day, whether it is a real flower bouquet, paper flowers or a dear drawing from a special little loved one.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

The Power of ‘Just Be’

pansyThe power of ‘Just Be’ is not an easy one to follow for many.  It is not because you do not wish for the change.  Many often feel that they are creating, making the changes.  I sat watching another recently struggling, wanting to change; yet, the old patterns and beliefs tug and pull to the disbelieving state of mind.

That is just it.  It is a state of mind.  If it is in the mind, then ego brings forth its lies.  You see the ego lies and lies big time.  Even I have to sit back and seek peace, solace, my truth.  In today’s busy world this is not always easy; nor is it easy when others around one may not understand.

I am a sacred heart high priestess, this does not mean turn on a dime.  Often times, it is heralding the ancient, divine wisdom and needing to sit with my sacred heart.  Yet, there are people who do not understand this at all.  Placing me on the spot may not bring forth what you had wished.  I do need to be in the ‘Just Be’ state and may not even presently be in the third dimension.  Often times I will leave a hologram and slip into other dimensions.  Happily gliding amongst where I am truly needed in that moment.

Do not be afraid to speak up and say, hey give me a minute.  I will admit, I was unsure how to say this.  I mean, come on, how do I say to one who disbelieves, sorry I am not present, and am unavailable for an individual whose energies, I really wish to seek solace from, and now you are putting pressure on me to jump to your patterns and beliefs.  Phew!  I have become more adept at politely returning this back on to the individual who is impatient and wants it their way, right now.  You see, I was once one of those people and am so thankful that I am able to live in the ‘Just Be’ moment.

Recently, I sat back and listened to another speak of an experience she had with a psychic and my heart began to scream noooooo. I cannot stress enough, there is not one size fits all.  One can be given suggestions, guidance and wisdom;however, it is the individual who needs to tailor this to their needs.  Here at the Magical Blessings Healing Center; we can help wipe the slate clean, begin anew and help gently guide one in a manner that is for their personal best.  Please reach out for fees and times.

As a sacred heart high priestess, I do not utilize just one forum; I may speak with the angels, Archangel Michael has been with me since birth, or flower therapy or a speaking with animals, crystals, Reiki, etc. and etc. Again, what heralds forth is what one truly needs when they work with me.  My higher self sings forward much of the time and Amel is ever wise with ancient wisdom beginning with just a moment ago and diving back to Atlantis.  What I am saying is, hey do not get caught up in the but, allow your mind to shut down.  I had to tell my ego it was fired many times; even today, I will turn to my precarious mind keeper and say,” okay I need you to….”  One day soon, I need to draw up a sketch, he’s quite a character.

Archeangel Michael, “Dears ring true to you, go inside, listen to your heart, be true to your heart, not ego, disallow, disslove ego.” 

I am sharing my ‘Just Be” meditation here again, use this to bring yourself into the present moment, disallow noise, yep that means shut off that cell phone, because your ego will say, well I’ll just peek, no that does not work.  Be real, that is another I must stress be real, don’t lie to yourself.  Society lies so much, at least give yourself that respect and take that moment.  Even if it is for 10=15 minutes, the old adage that Rome wasn’t built-in a day is true, so it will be true for you as well.  It takes time to readjust old patterns and beliefs.

“Dear Ones, be kind to you, your heart, your soul.  Your heart is the strongest energy that you herald.  Quiet the mind, quiet the ego and allow your heart to sing. One moment, one step and soon you’ll be buzzing.” -Amel
