Energy Field of Vervain for Electrical Grounding, Rehabilitation of Sensory Earth Energy Receptors

Here’s a really old painting (12th Century) showing a man holding the herb Vervain, subduing some sort of scary serpent who’s lying most deviously to him. Vervain helps the man see through the deception and know who is the enemy! Vervain is a nervine – which means a herb that helps calm and support the nervous system – just the thing to help you face challenges calmly and keep your nervous system strong.

Dear Ed,

An herb so old in the consciousness is Vervain or Verbena Officinalis.

I almost got drunk on Vervain on a very hard day in my life when I poured way too much of the alcohol extract of it into my water bottle. You know my old bad habit of putting in more of something if I feel I need it more. I held my nerve alright, all day, but I did feel quite drunk a lot 😉 . Continue reading

Holy Basil or Tulsi – Hold your Frequency, Lung Cell Rehab

About how Holy Basil helps rehabilitate failing or weak lungs, exhumes the body of stale air, helps us hold our frequency and strengthens our energy body. 

Dear Ed,

I saw a beautiful little wild Holy Basil plant today – Ocimum Gratissimum. It’s not the Sweet Basil used for cooking, or the usual Holy Basil used in Ayurvedic herbal medicines.

This is a wild strain of basil – and there are many.

I first came in touch with the “other” basils when I was living in the Himalaya mountains. Continue reading

Ed, one time I was going to have a heat stroke when I was in the last few months of being pregnant with Gabriel. I was so beyond hot, and no amount of water I drank was hydrating me enough.

This beautiful flower’s fragrance is most stunning in the night. It’s spicy and sweet and refreshing.

The tea made from its leaves and flowers is a wonderful calming relaxing cuppa without any of the extra tartness or extra heaviness that can be irritating in other herbs. It is just right. Continue reading

banyan-herbal-medicine
All you can see in the picture, is ONE Banyan tree that spreading out.

The fruit of the banyan tree is as much a wonder and a miracle as the rest of the tree. It develops according to the biorhythms of the tree and can be found around the year depending on how the tree has acclimatized to where it is.

This tree’s virility of rooting, growth and spreading – so much so one tree can cover acres and acres of land, are legendary.

Naturally the fruit has been used as support for sexual energy deficiencies and fertility in both men and women.

However it isn’t exactly an aphrodisiac. Rather, it works on a very basic level providing all the basic nutrition a person needs, much like baby food does, repairing a person on a very basic level so fertility and everything it needs all come in one big package. Continue reading
