Herbcraft: Forget-me-not

Forget-me-not / Myosotis Arvensis
This is a sweet small blue flower, from the plant family Boraginaceae.
There are many species of Forget-me-not, growing in Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. Loving damp moist soil usually found in woodlands or by rivers.
The name Myosotis comes from the Greek meaning mouse’s ear.
According to Greek Mythology, Zeus thought he had names every plant when a small blue flower called to him Forget-me-not. He then used this name for the pretty blue flower.
In fairylore it is said to mark the place where fairies buried their treasure, but also can be used by the fairies as a decoy.
Symbolising true, never-ending love and fidelity, also representing truthfulness in a relationship.
In folklore this flower has been worn in the absence of a lover to show fidelity.
It is said a man was swept away picking some from a riverbank for his lover. His last words carried on the breeze “forget me not”
Native to North America and 1st known to be used in homeopathy in 1398 in England to treat King Henry IV.
Used today in homeopathy to treat cough with night sweats, chronic bronchitis, and inner chest and lung infections.
The herbalist Henry Lyte 1529-1607, uses the name scorpion-grass when referring to the forget me not.
This can only be used in homeopathy as a tincher as the plant is toxic and highly poisonous if ingested in any other way.

Crystals & Sound Healing: Outdoor event – 11th June 2021

Join us for 2 hours of cleansing, opening/ clearing blockages of your chakras & energies – all in a natural outdoor setting. This is a hands-on experiential session, where we make use of real essential oils, crystals and singing bowls, incorporating meditative work – all created and facilitated by Freya – initiated Wiccan Priestess !

Participants are taken through cleansing and purification using essential oils, then will be encouraged to lay down on grass/ ground and reach a relaxed state. Different crystals related to chakras will be placed on participants bodies (over cloths but close to body as possible), and they will be led through chakra opening meditation to remove any of their personal energy & emotional blocks. The session then continues with facilitator Freya Witch using different singing bowls connected to each chakra to create a Sound Bath process that will align your energies.

We hold these special events on a week day day time, so that parents
and those with free time only in day hours can access these magical events.

About the tools we use:

Chakras – are ancient energy-systems said to be found on the bodies. There are 7 major chakras (Root, Sacral, Solar plexis, Heart, Throat, 3rd eye, Crown) – that each govern different aspects of our body and transpersonal functions (example: Heart for love, healing; 3rd eye for visions, insights, Sacral for sexuality, Solar Plexis for personal energy and so on).

Essential oils- are essences from plants that have been carefully extracted and prepared by experts. We use them in magical work with bodies and energies.(note: you can purchase these directly from Freya)

Singing bowls – have different frequency sounds when struck or rubbed with a wooden rod, and their sounds are specific for each of the chakras, and can activate, cleanse, and energise.

You do not need to know these or have worked with them before. You simply need to be willing to explore these ways of working

Date: Friday 11th June 2021

Time: 11am to 1pm.

Venue: Hamstead Heath (park) near Parliament Hill.

Meeting point: We meet just outside the Bistro Laz restaurant that is on the entrance area to the park. (1-2 Highgate West Hill · London). Once all are gathered, we’ll be walking 5-10 minutes into the park/ woods, to our pre-selected quiet place for the actual healing & energising session.

Fee: £7
Pay by cash on the day.

What to bring:

–This session takes place in an open natural park/ woods.
So please dress accordingly.
–We advise all to bring a blanket to lay down/ cover your self as you are laying on the ground for the relaxation & sound bath experience.

Some people sensitive to energies may have quick reactions while it may take longer for others to feel the shifts. All the systems and tools have been used for many thousands of years by esoteric people and mystics in various cultures & civilisations. So we advise you to have some trust and faith and allow these processes to work.

We look forward to seeing you, assist and support your spiritual healing & growth. As always, do contact us privately by messages with any questions/ concerns and for any additional consultations.

Blessings of Love & Light
