Where To Find Me

Hello again! Its been crazy busy and scary ever since Gibraltar closed but I have been able to find some shows to do and I am also working on trying to get some shows going with all us vendors.

On Saturday, October 28, I will be at the Harvest Holistic Fair at the Milford High School. The show runs from 10am to 6pm. Some of the vendors from Gibraltar will be there too.

Saturday, November 4 I will be at the Ann Arbor Women's Expo from 10am to 5pm at the Washtenaw County Fairgrounds in Ann Arbor. I will be sharing this space with Kristin Joy Life.

On Saturday, November 18, I'll be at Radiant Beings Psychic Fair. from 11am to 5pm. This is held at the VFW post in Romeo, I did this one in September also. Its kinda hard to find but its a nice little show again with a few other Gibraltar vendors.

And you can always find me on FaceBook, the first place I post about things I create. Its the quickest way to catch up because as you may have noticed, I'm not that great at sending these newsletters (something I am really going to work on).

I'd Like to Teach the World To....

I am pleased to announce that I am offering classes. Over the years I've had people ask about how to make things and so now I'm going to give it a go.

I have not found anywhere to hold the classes so for right now I'll do them at my house or yours, which means I can offer either groups or individual classes. I don't have an official schedule, working on that, so I'm flexible on when. More details to come. Be sure to check out the Classes Page for updates.

One of my ideas, that I have had for a long time, is Art Of The Tarot. In this class we would look at the artwork of many decks to compare and discuss how this relates to the traditional meaning. And in the process get a better understanding of the cards. Classes will be 2 hours long, one card an hour, and the course will run for 11 weeks to cover the Major Arcana of the tarot deck. I'd like to begin on November 6 so contact me as soon as possible to sign up.

Other ideas are Create Your Own Pendulum, Melt and Pour Soap Making, and maybe some jewelry classes. Please let me know if you are interested, either now or in the future. Also let me know if there is something you would like me to offer. I'm open to ideas.

Mystical Magical Ginseng

So I've been saying how I just couldn't get motivated. How depressed I felt, how tired I've been. I had stuff to do, I wanted to get stuff done, I'd plan out my day....but then waste it and sit around....then stress myself out getting mad because I didn't do anything. I'd tell myself I'd do better tomorrow but then.....same thing would happen. And I was having panic attacks wondering how I was going to pay the bills.

I started noticing some physical symptoms and started trying some stuff to correct it. The thing that seemed to do the trick was ginseng. I used to take it when I was younger. I loved ginseng tea. I even found a liquid form and took that for a while. I don't remember why I stopped. Maybe I felt it wasn't helping anymore. Maybe I couldn't afford it. I know I was unable to find it in the form I liked.

Since I started taking it again, I have more energy. I'm getting a lot more done every day. In fact I'm finding it harder to slow down and rest. My mind seems clearer too. I'm having less negative thoughts and I'm able to look forward without all the self doubt that has been holding me back. I've still had a couple panic attacks but they are way less often.

So what is ginseng? Panax ginseng is an ancient Taoist tonic herb that has been used in Chinese medicine for 5000 years. It is a perennial plant with a branched aromatic root, which the Chinese thought looked like a man. It both relaxes and stimulates the nervous system, improves stamina, boosts immune system, helps regulate hormones, and can lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels. It helps with menopausal symptoms, male infertility, and erectile dysfunction. It stimulates the libido in both men and women. It is thought to be an overall tonic for the entire body.

Studies are being done to see if it lowers cancer risk and it has proven to help combat the effects of radiation therapy.

It is recommended to use for 6 weeks then take a break, as excess can cause headaches or high blood pressure. Do not take ginseng if you are taking blood thinning medications or 2 weeks before surgery as it is know to have anti-clotting effects on the blood. Ginseng is a stimulant so it will enhance other stimulants like caffine so don't take more than recommended.

Do not take ginseng if you have asthma, high blood pressure, or cardiac arrhythmia. Use with caution if you have insommia, hay fever, or fibrocystic breasts.

Panax ginseng, (Chinese or Korean ginseng), is native to Korea and NE China, while panax quinquefolius, (American ginseng), is native to eastern N. America. They are very similar but sightly different. Both seem to have the same healing uses but Chinese ginseng is ususally better for anyone over 40 and American ginseng is better for anyone younger than 40.

The suppliment I'm taking is a capsule with dried root of 4 types of ginseng: red chinese ginseng (panax ginseng), Korean ginseng (panax ginseng), American ginseng (panax quinquefolius), and eleuthero (eleutherococcus senticosus). I bought it at Better Health but any health food store should carry it. Be sure it is the dried root, best in a capsule as a tablet is more adulterated.

So what is eleuthero? It is sometimes called Siberian ginseng. The plant looks nothing like ginseng but they belong to the same botanical family and both are adaptogens. They have very similiar benefits to the human body. Altho native to China, Japan, and Russia, it was ignored until 1947 when a Russian scientist started studying adaptogens and discovered eleuthero's similarities to ginseng. The benefits and cautions are the same too.

If you decide to try ginseng yourself, please be sure to check with your physician if you are taking any medications as there can be reaction between some herbs and medicines.

Blessed be,

Song Quotes:


"You gotta take some time,
And fight for the answers, they're hard to find
You...now don'tcha
fantasize
Start makin' your chances materialize

Learn how to bend
Learn how to break
Learn how to mend
Broken heartaches
Learn to forgive
Learn how to wait
Learn how to live
before its too late"
