Don’t Be Afraid.

Welcome to Psychedelic Wizard. This is a welcoming environment where you can openly criticise and reflect without fear of persecution.

I’ve gained followers, and I’ve lost followers, which can be disheartening. It makes me wonder if I did something wrong, or if I over did my posting. I don’t intend to bombard you, rather, to post a sufficient amount of content that I like to post and which I enjoy making, and which can be reached by enough people to potentially create a bigger following. So, losing followers although sad is understandable, if the values are not in alignment anymore. What I mean by that is the people unfollowing are not feeling the site energy anymore or perhaps are fed up and not interested. I always appreciate on-going support and want you to know that. I am grateful for the audience on WordPress. Some of you have been liking, commenting and more for many years. I just hope that I have an audience in the future.

I do get disheartened when I see other blogs with thousands of followers, who probably got that in a lot less time than I even got to 500. I have tried to post consistent content for a few years now, but somehow my post counter doesn’t even seem to be close to what it should be. There are occasional glitches in WordPress sites, such as some appearing ‘unsafe’ or ‘virus ridden’ even though they are not. I suspect the content on the sites are a factor, and have been classified as dangerous because of that. I have struggled to access certain blogs from time to time because of this issue.

But it brings me happiness to see long-term bloggers who are still contributing and putting effort into their amazing blogs. I love to read them and explore new sites and topics. It always amazes me how little they expect in return. I won’t name anybody but I am so happy to be following a few blogs which have been motivational and inspirational for many years that I have been reading. You may know who you are!

POEM called Don’t Be Afraid. It is about the uncertainty and doubt that can create issues in our lives. Ultimately, having the courage to move forward, to triumph over the unknown. My other post Into The Tunnels is also about that bravery, in different circumstances

I was a child who was afraid to look under the bed once
there were men who used to say the most harsh things to women
life was a bubble that we all wanted to burst
everyone had to quench the fear of their thirst
or their last breath that they gave
as the doors were crushed
halo of gold dust that fluttered beside me
seeing the way
and creating no barrier
a sea that is devoid of anger
replaced with content

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

Easter! A Time of Hope

A time for hope and joy, Easter. The time of Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the after. After returning, was spotted with holes in his hands and feet, wandering around. Sounds insignificant.

Looking at this a little more we can see that he returned with the help of God, who resurrected him. His enemies, afraid. His friends, astounded and happy. Still to this day we need a reason to believe. He walked among the human race once more. His form had changed, as it had done previously. It is not to suggest he was a shapeshifter, although it is likely that he was, due to his spiritual nature, he could take human form like angels.

Easter, a time for chocolate and over indulgence. The modern world, inverting everything like usual, has to turn it on its head and sin. Gluttony and lies plague Easter. We get irrelevant images of bunnies, instead of attending church in humble honour of His sacrifice for our sins. I watched an Easter service last year online, delivered by a reverend I knew at the time. I must say it sticks in my mind because it was brilliant. Very imaginative and detailed as it chronicled Jesus from crucifixion to resurrection.

The resurrection shows us that God, is more powerful than anything in the universe, for He can literally raise the dead. It proves that love, is stronger than hate and fear. It shows a fathers love for his son, saved him. Jesus was the strongest man on earth at one point, taking the unthinkable burden of sacrificing himself for the sins of humanity, knowing the weight of what he was doing.

For over two thousand years, since his death, the human race has sinned in various forms. War, suffering, anger, hate, gluttony, cheating, free reign on porn and sex, magic and bitch craft, murder, scheming, secret vows, political satire bullshit, animal slaughter, disgracing God and Jesus’ names. The list goes on.

What have we become if not immoral inherent? Are we really capable of ascension, forgiveness and true unconditional love?

Benefits of Flowers in The Home

I always wondered why a lovely cut garden full of a beautiful assortment of flowers in a rainbow of colours made me feel better. I don’t decorate my apartment with any flowers, not usually. Today I decided as part of my changes that I would start putting some flowers around. I also want to get some lovely house plants.

Flowers don’t usually last forever, that is when they are used to brighten a home. Some last longer than others, those that haven’t bloomed yet will last longer. Price is not an issue, because if you go to any garage forecourt in England or to any supermarket, or even flower shops, they will have an array of cheap bunches for sale from £3-5. I managed to get some today from a flower shop in Cheshire. They had some reduced bunches outside the shop at £2 each and included plenty of flowers. I also bought some lillies, they are big and have yet to bloom. They are purple/lilac in colour. I then went to another shop in another part of Cheshire and bought a vase from a flower shop. Given the price of the bunches you can get outside, I am probably now going to buy myself some every week. The price is low being a couple of pounds and they will last around 2 weeks (?) I am not sure, but apparently 7-12 days is what you should expect.

I’ll move on to the benefits of actually having flowers in the home:

  1. Bright colours boost mood – Having a lovely vibrant bouquet in your home can significantly boost mood. Why? Bright colours impact how we think and feel. Check out the link to see another post on that. Bright reds and oranges, purples and blue can all boost how you feel. All of them will make you calm as plants and flowers are great at reducing stress and anxiety. When choosing flowers let your instincts guide you as your body knows what it needs, don’t be put off if you suddenly like a colour you never did before. Flowers can speak to us…
  2. They smell fantastic – smell might improve how you feel too! Because of the wide choice of flowers, you also have options with smell. How does a rose compare to a lily? What about lavender to jasmine? Flowers are the source for essential oils, it is the essence of compressed flowers that makes the oil. Thus, if you can find a flower you like you will undoubtedly find something similar in oils. They smell great, freshening the air and aerating any space. The proximity to the flowers will matter. I wouldn’t recommend inhaling the scent of flowers all day either as you may have symptoms of hayfever from the pollen.
  3. Purifying the air in our home – plants and flowers alike will take in carbon dioxide and spew out oxygen as part of the process of photosynthesis. Although certain big plants will help more than flowers, there are flowers like peace lilies which are supposed to be good at this. So, even though you might be able to open a window, adding flowers around the home can also boost the quality regardless. Adding some in the bathroom might be a good idea? I find gazing into a vase of flowers whilst in the bath to be somewhat relaxing.
  4. Welcoming environment and conversation starters – When I enter someone’s home and see flowers I feel immediately relaxed and that I somehow understand that person just a little bit more. Sounds ridiculous at first… but think about it. If you have flowers in your living room or bedroom or wherever, kitchen for example, and the guest sees them, they may comment on them almost immediately. That is why they are great conversation starters. If you feel nervous about socialising then talk about the plants and the flowers. The flowers are not shy so feel free to talk to them as well. Yes, they do help to create a home you can be happy to live in. I really do love lilies simply because they are so beautiful. Having just one vase of lilies can be enough to make even the angriest of guests docile and accepting.
  5. Improved self love and care – When you take active steps to improve your wellbeing or to be a better person, you are already one step closer to healing all your issues and being in a state of peace. You might think that flowers are somehow only for women or that it just seems uncool to have them. Having flowers and plants to improve how you feel is a great step to showing yourself some self love and care. By caring for the flowers through observation and watering you can develop and in fact care for yourself. Reducing stress, anxiety, making you feel good are all flowers qualities.

How do you feel about this post? Would you agree that flowers are beneficial to the home? Are flowers not just something you buy once in a while for a special occasion? Don’t hesitate if you see some flowers in the shop you like, taking decisions like this can make you feel more confident. Being able to live in a home full of beautiful flowers from nature, the earth and beyond are important. Remember my post on frequencies and the recent post on emotions of colours? Check the emotions of colours post to see how they can impact us. Lavender, being calming with protective properties are suitable for myself but you may want to experiment with how a particular flower makes you feel. If you want to be a bit wild, there is no limits. You have a rainbow of colours available.

Take the time to find your local florist or shop or any that you like. Who knows what will happen. There is no need to buy anything. When you are developing and journeying it is not expected that you will always be so bold, but you can work past this. You could also go and pick some wild flowers. Now that spring has started, they will all be rising up for you to see. Be careful when picking flowers as it might not be allowed on private grounds!

I stuck them all in 1 vase. They look so much better in person

Stay safe!

Blooming

First, you need to plant the seed in soil. You need to add water and light. Wait a few weeks or months, and eventually the seed will have germinated into a lovely flower.

Facts about plants (photosynthesis):

  • The leaves are green due to the chlorophyll and the leaves absorb light for photosynthesis.
  • The first stage of photosynthesis captures energy from the sun to break down water molecules.
  • It takes six molecules of water and six molecules of carbon dioxide to make one molecule of glucose during photosynthesis.
  • The leaves change colour during the autumn because of the reduced photosynthesis.
  • The opposite of photosynthesis is cellular respiration. The process of using energy stored in sugars.

The bottom is an Asiatic Lily that I have placed in my living room. As you can see two bloomed last night, and they are beautiful.

The top photos is an overview of only a small Southerly part of my town. I love to walk up to the heights and get the full panoramic view of everything, especially on such a lovely day.

A blooming mesmerise,
bees delight hidden inside,
withered into autumn,
cradle winter night,
the flower blooms,
not matter what the time.

Aromatherapy

I am not the type of person who will swear on aromatherapy as a cure all, or the type of individual to swear by essential oils as being the best kind of “better medicine”…

But, general relaxation and peace and quiet of the mind, and maybe some spiritual connection to the divine or even prayer aid, yoga aid, Pilates aid, boxing aid…you name it…I will back up aromatherapy.

So, what is this “therapy you speaketh of?”

According to Wikipedia: “Aromatherapy is based on the usage of aromatic materials, including essential oils, and other aroma compounds, with claims for improving psychological or physical well-being. It is offered as a complementary therapy or as a form of alternative medicine, the first meaning alongside standard treatments, the second instead of conventional, evidence-based treatments.”

My recommendation is this: If you want to explore alternative then this is the place to start your alternative medicine journey. I would say go out and buy a good quality diffuser and some essential oils.

Good beginner oils are Lavender. It is apparently one of the safest to use, being able to apply directly to the skin and even add to the bath. Diffusing lavender essential oil essentially…lol…evapourates the oil and water into a steam to be inhaled. 2 or 3 drops are a good starting point.

Lavender is touted as an anxiety, depression, stress and insomnia aid. “When inhaled, the olfactory bulb can induce emotion and memory. It’s hypothesized that the smell-triggered memory associated with stress can be turned into positive mood and emotions by using certain oils, like lavender.”

A good choice to treat migraine. One small study from European Neurology found participants who inhaled lavender had a reduction in the severity of their pain in just 15 minutes. 

Many love and wishes to you all. Enjoy your day and have a happy and fruitful week. May God bless every single one of you, x.
