Balm

 

Herb of the Day

 

BALM

 

(Melissa officinalis)

To grow: Perennial herb. Grows to 2 ft. It’s leaves are heavily veined, light green leaves with a lemony scent. It’s white flowers are unimportant and need to be cut occasionally to keep compact. Spreads rapidly. Grow in rich, moist soil in sun or part shade. Balm is very hardy and you can propagate from seed or root divisions. Self sows.

Uses: Balm is an excellent carminative herb that relieves spasms in the digestive tract and is used in flatulent dyspepsia. The gently sedative oils relieve tension and stress reactions, therefore, acting to lighten depression. It has a tonic effect on the circulatory system and heart, thus lowering blood pressure. It can be used in feverish conditions such as flu.

Parts used: Dried aerial parts or fresh in season. Pick the leaves two or three times a year between early summer and early fall. Cut off the young shoots when they are approximately 12 in long. They should be dried in the shade at a temperature not more than 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

Infusion: Pour a cup of boiling water onto 2-3 teaspoons of the dried herb or 4-6 fresh leaves and leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes, well covered. Drink a cup in the morning and the evening or when needed.

Tincture: Take 2-6 ml of the tincture three times a day.

Springtime Ritual

 By Morgana Ravenwings

 

Spring is right around the corner!! Imbolc, a day of welcoming the Maiden has just passed. Soon She will be growing, maturing into what She will one day be….. the Great Mother. But for now, She is sweet and beautiful, carefree, laughing, innocent, and oh, so alive. She is full of potential, in love with life, in love with everything around Her. She begins running free through the fields and the wood, encouraging growth….growth that can not be seen yet, but is happening all around us. Happening in secret, in the womb of Mother Earth.

 

This ritual will focus on healing what has past, what we can no longer do anything about. It will encompass not only healing, but the discovery of the potential that lies hidden within us all, the potential we were born with, the potential that we are meant to use on our Earthwalk to better our lives and the lives of those around us, whether two-legged, four-legged, green, winged, crawling or swimming. And it will encompass a dedication/rededication, a promise to ourselves to keep our eyes on the path; to seek the pure, the sacred, the Divine within us as the ultimate goal. To burst forth with our potential, just as Spring will soon burst forth before our eyes.

 

You will need:

 

A candle in your choice of color (What color symbolizes your inner self to You?)

 

A fireproof bowl or cauldron to put the candle in

 

Incense of your choice (In this ritual we will be doing inner work. What incense puts you in a quiet frame of mind?)

 

Two pieces of paper and a pen

 

Some beautiful music

 

A cup of tea, if desired (I always think better over tea….)

 

Body of the Ritual

 

If you wish, cast a circle. If not, simply visualize yourself surrounded by white light. Thank the Goddess.

 

Place the candle in the bowl. Put on the music. Make your tea, thanking the Goddess for her bounty as you do. Light the candle and incense and have a seat in front of the candle with your paper and pen. Light the candle and incense.

 

Begin with centering. Close your eyes, and focus on your breathing. In and out, in and out. Feel the breath on your nostrils. Feel it entering your body. Rising and falling. Quiet your mind. In and out. In and out. Feel yourself becoming still. Bit by bit, your body begins relaxing….your thoughts slow down…..stillness…..sacred quiet…..

 

When you feel that sacred stillness welling up within you, open your eyes and pick up a sheet of paper and pen. Think back over the past months, the winter months. If you need to, close your eyes again and quietly reflect. What has been going on in your life? Are there aspects of your life that need healing? Are you secretly harboring anger or resentment towards someone? Perhaps towards yourself? Has someone hurt you in thought word or deed? Have you not been taking care of yourself, thinking that others should be taken care of first because they are more “important”? Do you not like yourself? Are you confused? Is your mind running a mile a minute, making stillness very hard to come by? Have you hurt someone in thought, word, or deed? What in your inner life needs healed? Are you worried about material needs? About members of your family or friends? Whatever pops in your mind, write on the piece of paper. When you are done, take each thing you have written, and expand on it. Write about each thing that has popped in your mind. Why do you think this has happened? How do you feel about it? What can be done about it? Anything? Do you need to let go of something or someone? When you are done writing about each thing, hold the paper up, and put it in the flame of the candle. As you do this say:

 

I release these burdens. I release this karma. The Divine Fire purifies all.

 

Watch as the entire paper burns up, knowing that as this happens, these things are being burnt out of your spirit, the karma that these incidents have created is being burnt, removed, turned to ashes. As if it never happened….gone. Remember, everything we do creates karma, and karma returns to us, good or bad, oftentimes unexpectedly and through unexpected sources. When the paper is completely burned, thank the Goddess in what ever manner you are accustomed to.

 

Now you have been freed up to hear clearly. To hear your inner Self. That still small voice within you. We cannot hear properly when our mind is churning over hurts, over things that need to be done, over the past, over things that we cannot control or change.

 

Put the second piece of paper in front of you. Close your eyes, return to focusing on your breathing. Quiet your mind. Return to the stillness. Quiet. Silence. Open your eyes, and write on the paper “Why am I here?” Underneath this, write the first thing that pops in your mind. Write again “Why am I here?” Again, write the first thing that pops in your mind. Continue doing this 20 times, over and over. Do not think about how you are answering. Don’t censor yourself. Just listen and write. Many different reasons will pop into your mind, and each of these is as valid as the next. Just write. When you are finished, pick up the paper and read your answers. What do these answers tell you about yourself? Do you see a pattern in your answers? A progression? Have your passions come to the forefront in this exercise?

 

We come into this Earthplane knowing our purpose. We know why we are here. But as we grow, we forget. We get caught up in relationships, careers, school, worries, etc. During all this hustle and bustle, we forget who we are and why we are here. This exercise helps us to begin the remembering process. Our inner Self still knows why we are here, we just need to listen. In this listening comes the remembering.

 

After contemplating your answers, fold the paper up, go outside, and bury it in the Earth. As you do this, giving of yourself and your innermost thoughts to Mother Earth, promise yourself to continue listening, to continue remembering and to place your spiritual life high on your list of priorities. Rededicate yourself, in the form of promising yourself, to keep your eyes on your Divine quest. Thank the Goddess. It is done.
