A Compendium of Herbal Magick -- Paul Beyerl

It should be pointed out that the Book of Secrets contains an almost verbatim passage.

The eleventh herbe is named of the Chaldees, Isiphon...of Englishmen, Centory...this herbe hath a marvellous virtue, for if it be joined with the blod of a female lapwing or black plover, and be put with oile in a lamp, al that compass it about shall believe themselves to be witches, so that one shall believe of another that his head is in heaven and his feete on earth; and if the aforesaid thynge be put in the fire when the starres shine it shall appeare yt the starres runne one agaynste another and fyghte. [English translation, 1619]

Also on my desk, Animal Reiki -- Elizabeth Fulton and Kathleen Prasad

In Dorothy the goat’s case, as soon as Kathleen asks permission and begins to offer the energy, Dorothy comes right over and presents her front right leg, which has an old injury.

Dorothy moves away, and then comes back to Kathleen’s hands. This is normal behavior for animals, and Kathleen backs up to the fence, giving Dorothy even more space than she has asked for.

I don’t believe in tagging others, but anyone who reads this is invited to add it to her journal and share in the joy of meme.
