Thank You Damien Echols

“I believe there are only two unstoppable forces in the universe. One is love, the other is intelligence. I also believe that a person’s capacity to love is directly related to their intelligence level, just as hate corresponds to a person’s level of ignorance. The only thing that makes it impossible for the system to destroy you and grind your spirit into nothing is to be more intelligent than it is.”

― Damien Echols

Full Moon Poison Harvest


We are expecting some moderate flooding rains over this long weekend here, and the rain has just started, so with this knowledge in hand I decided to do some harvesting for my next batch of rather potent flying ointment, everything I am using is fresh from the farm here except for the Mandrake root and Balm of Gilead.


I’ve placed the ingredients into a jar and topped it with brandy, I will leave it to ferment, brew and cook over the next few weeks.


When it’s finished I will have a potent tincture that will be able to be used in many ointments. It’s totally poisonous and will be only used for external use.


I have collected all these fresh herbs under the waxing almost full moon today as it peaks at 4.38am in the morning I will leave it out overnight, to absorb the Moons full strength. That strength will be building strongly as the moon moves into Leo twenty minutes after midnight the sign of creativity and ruled by the Sun. So this brew has the balance of planetary sun and moon.


When this is added to beeswax and lanolin it will be a very potent ointment that will be used for hedgecrossings (Astral travelling, Out-of-body experiences).

My ingredients are Belladonna, 2 types of Wormwood, Mugwort, Henbane, Mandrake Root, Datura, assorted Magick Mushrooms and Balm of Gilead.


I will write a lot more on this soon; time does not permit more at present.


Happy Full Moon tonight Folks!

I am Home!


Whist I was out weeding the rose garden yesterday, late in the day, after having had a day where the mercury made it over 44 degrees, I was enjoying the music, lights and the magic of the storms in the skies all around me. I looked to the Northern sky and saw an amazing rainbow with its feet planted firmly amongst the giant and ancient lilli pilli trees that line the river down the hill from me, on the property I live on. I stood up, as the colours stretched out across the sky above me and into the river behind me….talk about natural magic!


There I was standing right under a full spectacular rainbow…I felt so blessed to be a part of this gift of fire and water, that goes from the earth, through the air and repeats this cycle involving all the elements, and it moves my spirit, to a heightened awareness, and deepens my connection to the place I call home. Moments like these are where we can truly tap the bone, and connect with our ancestors, as it holds us in a place between the worlds.

I see this reflected before me as the sky to the North is a dark purplish deep grey before me, and behind me and to the left the South Western sky is bright blue with white clouds and sunshine! Here I stand between the worlds in the physical as well as the astral, two worlds, with an umbrella of radiant rainbow above me, reaching deeply back to earth, at each end, the river’s water embracing the colours as well as the mythical pots of gold.


Moments like this confirm for me my animistic path, and the connection becomes euphoric, heady and effervescent.

I lay in the paddock, surrounded by tall grass that has seen the extremes of 40 degrees 3 times in the last week; it’s cool yet crunchy in spots, my dog faithfully beside me, lies down with me. The cows surround us separated by the fences of worn grey timber and rusted barbed wire. Varied splashes of water fall on my skin, from the rain clouds above. The breeze gets stronger and is refreshing and stirs up the grass all around me. I too lay here seeking nourishment like the parched Earth; I accept each drop of water and each breath of air on the breeze into my being.


Here I lay in the embrace of the Mother, in a space between the waters of her luscious river curves, a pocket of earth, a century of acres of paradise, surrounded by her healing waters, that give all that dwell here much life.

I am blessed for these moments, for this place, and for the ancestors that guide me in my work. I am home!
