In the spirit of things new and exciting, I'm going to attempt a return to the practices that I had abandoned so long ago. Truly, I had acquired herbs and other items to help me with my ever growing interest in natural spiritualism, but never actually used them. In fact, I still have, and get this, an ounce of "Holy Water." It was part of a lot of herbs I had bought on eBay years ago. Who knows if the herbs are even any good anymore, but I'm interested in giving it a go at long last.
My first experiments shall be to use what I've got to increase my psychic ability. I don't know just how strong my natural abilities will be once unblocked, but I have been told by the few mediums I have consulted that, once opened, my psychic talents will be amazing. (I'm paraphrasing, here.)
Tonight: An herbal infusion tea of dried Mugwort (for vivid dreams and some psychic enhancement), dried Wormwood (for psychic enhancement and protection in Dreamland) and dried Licorice Root (to help with the bitterness of the first two.) From what I understand, a Mugwort tea is bitter enough without adding the insult of Wormwood. Supposedly, Licorice Root (which just so happened to be in that lot of herbs, as well) should help cut the taste a bit.
1 tsp Mugwort
1/2 tsp Wormwood
1/2 tsp Licorice Root
1 C boiling water
Steep for 5-10 minutes.
If it's really as bad as they make it sound, I'll be downing that mo-fo as quickly as my throat will allow without burning my esophagus.
I will report on my dreams tomorrow.
