Spin Breaker Herbs – Holistic Relief from Emotional and Energy Blocks

Dear Ed,

I wrote to you about herbs that demagnetize the body, so the body can regenerate itself instead of being stuck in the same patterns over and over.

Similar to those herbs, Ed, but working on a slightly different level, are what I call “Spin Breaker Herbs”.

There’s the magnetic field, Ed, formed by us as we do our daily routine in the physical place, our physical body, occupies. Demagnetizing the body with fresh air, changing the metabolism of the body, and demagnetizing influences such as herbs, all help.

You know, Ed, creative geniuses who are able to convert their energy into beautiful things, they know the value of demagnetization very well and instinctively will do things to keep their energy flowing right.

The great sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens, when he wasn’t quite so famous, had only a little studio in a run down mostly abandoned building in New York. His landlord thought he was renting to a mostly harmless artsy type when he suddenly got the biggest water bill ever. When he went around investigating, he found that Augustus Saint Gaudens only worked with the tap open in the bathroom sink and the sound of flowing water going through the studio.

His entire career, he worked with water near him, and he was so bothered about the water features around wherever he worked, that when he was away from home, and a pool was being built outside his studio, and his wife wrote to him but forgot to mention how the pool was coming on; he sent her an angry letter about how he had enough information about how his wife and child were coming on, and the only thing he wanted to hear about, was the POOL.

The pool in the central atrium of Augustus Saint Gaudens’ home.

When that pool was finally finished. You can’t see it in this pic but to the right, was his studio.
Saint Gaudens’ swimming hole in “Blow me Down” Brook . This was on his property, possibly the reason why he agreed to buy it in the first place. This whole area used to be a pool in his time. He’d dammed the brook with stones to make it a pool. He used to run out of his studio and down the hill and jump into this pool.

But you see, Ed, those who know how to convert their energy right, they give attention to influences around them that help keep their energy flow going right. It’s the difference between those who stay wishing and dreaming about doing things, and those who actually manage to do what they dream of doing.

The details, matter. The little things matter. And anything that helps get our energy flowing is so important, Ed.

You know, Ed, if we actually realized that staying in static energy loops was robbing us of our dreams, our destiny, of love, of happiness, OF MONEY, we would wake the hell up and start paying attention to the things that keep us in energy and consciousness loops, preventing us from breaking out of the spin and taking leaps and steps towards where we want to go.

Those who achieve, Ed, they find this out early in life and that’s how they’re able, even in our times, which are anything but conducive to creative energy flow, to keep their energy flowing.

So Ed, I was saying that there’s demagnetization of the body from the physical magnetic field built by routine and repetitive physical movements, especially in a particular place. The physical magnetic field is made up of a vibrations that then begin to influence the thoughts and feelings of a person which tend to become repetitive as well, trapping the person in many ways, for better or worse in that spin.

Just as a magnetic field builds up because of repetitive physical movements, so a consciousness magnetic field develops through repetitive thought and feeling processes. It’s something like a cloud of memory that builds up with lot of emotional patterns being reinforced through time, that becomes so big that people feel emotionally influenced and even played by the field.

We build our own Spin fields up through out life as we go through various emotional experiences. It could keep us in good patterns, or it could keep us in things like trauma, feelings of loneliness, isolation, low self esteem and so on.

When we’re feeling stuck in life, Ed, it’s mostly because our own spin fields made up of repetitive thought and feelings has become too big.

Breaking the Spin, is what has to be done. Unlike demagnetization which can be done on physical level by getting fresh air, lightning a fire, being near water bodies; breaking our Time Memory spin, is on another level.

I’ve had to deal with a lot of trauma in my life, Ed, starting with losing my mother the day I was born. Even as a child I already had too much of a trauma field. Without me knowing it, Granddad used to “pop” the spin field.

Now Ed, you can’t tell a child to “snap out of it,” and Granddad was faced with such a situation. He couldn’t even ask me about my trauma because I didn’t know. All I knew then was things on the surface, like what I ate for breakfast and who came home in the evening and which fruit tree was blossoming. I was so traumatized I could not know what I was feeling.

The way I was brought up, Ed, in the foster family, no one ever bothered about my feelings, so the time Granddad asked me how I was, I’d say I stood first in my class again. I’d give him updates on my academic performance and then tell him how the trees were doing. That was all I knew of my own life in my own head at the time.

So Ed, he had to find another way to break me out of trauma. He used to tell me to look at the moon. I told him I wasn’t allowed out of the house in the night. He said, “Slip out for ten minutes when no one will notice. But you must look at the moon tonight. You’ll get very scared and upset for a while. But don’t go away. Look till you feel sleepy.”

So Ed, I began to do that. I couldn’t do it everyday. But whenever I could. And later on in my life, whenever things got too much for me, I used to slip out and look at the moon.

My drawing of a special moment in my life, when I slipped out of the dormitory in a boarding school I was in, and the moon was waiting for me.

Looking at the moon, Ed, it breaks the spin of emotional and mental fields.

“Moon River” Ed, by Henry Mancini, from the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” is a beautiful song written about just this experience.

For those who can’t go look at the moon, looking at one’s own left palm has a similar effect. It’s not easy as it sounds, Ed. I focus on the center point of my palm and you got to cross the point where your whole body seems to want to make you look away. That force trying to stop you from looking at your own palm is the big field of static emotional patterns holding you back.

These are the easiest things to incorporate into lifestyle to keep breaking the spin for emotional and mental clarity and freshness.

But God has made herbs too that work amazing to break the spin.

I’ve been rescued from the swamps of my mind and trauma field, again and again by them, Ed. My angels that came to me in answer to prayers.

They are Oleander, Ghostpipes or Monotropa Uniflora,Wormword or Artimisia Absinthium and Larkspur or Staphsagriya.

Oleander – Thevetia

Ed, it’s now hidden, the power of Oleander. Once upon a time, it was grown in courtyards just like the most important medicinal plants.

Here’s a painting.

“An Oleander” by Lawrence Alma-Tadema – 1882
“A Greek Woman” by Lawrence Alma-Tadema in 1869, (a whole two decades before the previous painting) also shows Oleander being smelled. There is the sentiment of desire in the woman’s face. Traditionally, Oleander is known to sharpen one’s instincts.

The things a person should know about Oleander are:
– Oleander is a poison and has to be taken in very highly diluted quantities. One drop of the tincture is OK and ENOUGH.
– The electricity and consciousness of Oleander causes a consciousness “buzzing”. If I had to translate it into a sound that you might recognize, Ed, it’s the sound that comes when something metal hits another metal thing that’s spinning. Like the sound made by a single knife touching a knife sharpening machine.

I don’t know if you’ve seen a knife sharpening machine. When I was little, people took the knives and gardening tools in the house regularly to the knife sharpening shop, instead of buying new knives like most people do now.

Here is a photo I took in 2018 of what looks like a very old knife sharpening machine. I took the pic from across the road where I was standing at the butcher’s Ed. So it’s not very clear.

When the machine is on, Ed, that wheel spins very fast. Like an old record playing, or a cd inside a cd drive. And then the knife to be sharpened is gently put on the edge. The metal of the spinning wheel rubs off (at high speed) the edge of the knife making it sharp again.

It’s hypnotic and fascinating, Ed, to watch the machine in motion and the knife getting sharpened setting off sparks as it comes in touch with the metal wheel spinning.

That Ssshhhhhhhhhhhssssssshhhhhhhsssss sound; the vibration of that is how Oleander sounds. It has a similar effect in our consciousness, coming in the way of the spin, and helping break it.

This sound and vibration has been used maliciously to cause trauma by those in the trauma harvesting industry.

But for those who do not fear “coming apart” or their spin being broken; who would like to live on and off something more permanent than a spin of old patterns, this can be valuable medicine.

The exact experience, Ed, is not something about which I can say, “I took a drop of Oleander at two o’clock, and at three this happened.” It shows more in a simple change in emotional cycles, which causes us to think and react differently to things from before. Just little things, but which all add up and cause big changes.

Oleander makes us aware of what we want, what we desire, a simple way to clarity.

Oleander is not something one needs to take regularly unless you’re under a seriously huge trauma field that won’t budge. Just knowing about it is enough. At the right time, it will appear in your mind’s eye or memory, you’ll remember reading this. That will trigger you into maybe getting a plant, or looking at photos of them online, or getting the tincture and actually having a drop.

We’re dealing with a manifestation of the spirit of God here. Oleander will speak to your soul and take it from there.

Ghostpipes or Monotropa Uniflora

Ghostpipes – Taken by Rebekka Honkala in 2021I have never seen this native of the New England area of the East Coast of the US, in this lifetime, in the wild myself. I’ve just bought the tincture and experienced it that way.

I saw it first in a forum on Facebook on native plants of the US and I was simply stunned beyond stunned. They went straight to my heart like an old friend.

This plant, Ed, lives an ethereal existence, manifesting in this world, but without the usual parts of a plant, like roots. It lives by communication through fungi with other plants that feed it that way.

They don’t have muscle and bone like us, or the same physical structure as other plants. They manifest as held together by an energy field that literally holds them together. When they’re plucked, the field pops and they flop down.

They are put into water for tincture immediately on the spot where they’re found because they near totally disintegrate very very quickly.

The season of 2021 was apparently amazing for seeing them (and mushrooms) because of the extra rains the region experienced.

For me the sighting of them in such large numbers as in 2021, is a huge sign from the spirit.

This plant, Ed, demonstrates the principle of surviving without roots and means a lot to me who had to grow up without my parents. I had to find a way of living in this world by finding my spiritual roots, that which is eternal, the connections of my soul.

My life changed when I found this angel friend of mine.

Why I call it a Spin Breaker Herb, Ed, is because it just doesn’t buy into common consciousness AT ALL. It just doesn’t. It’s just its own self. It maintains its primal pure basic energy field between the earth field magnetism beneath and the stars swirling above.

I have it whenever I feel the swirl of emotional patterns getting overwhelming for me, and not like when I feel overwhelming love, but when I feel overwhelming heaviness or emotional sludge around me.

This is a wonderful help for those sensitive to energies in public places and places where energy fields and patterns build up.

I wish I’d known about it before. It’s just wonderful.

Opium has been such a popular drug for a good reason. It is a traditional spin breaker, used especially to break the pain report of nerves in a pain hypnosis.

This painting of a poppy field, by Edward Wilbur Dean Hamilton in 1889, shows how poppies were grown around homes for their medicinal uses. These days poppies have been defamed as simply the source of drugs and the cause of wars. However, in traditional medicine poppies are powerful healers of the nervous system and help those suffering from the after effects of severe vibrational assault, recover.

It’s unfortunate that such a wonderful medicine has been reduced to a pharmaceutical product that delivers the physical effects without the energy field and consciousness of the plant.

Nerve ending hypnosis is a real problem. When nerve endings get into a spin they can’t break out of, they keep reporting the same thing, whether that’s pain, or itching, or nothing. This triggers the same responses from the body over and over.

This could cause all kinds of problems, problems like the over-delivery of nutrients to places where there was once a little wound, these layer up and become tumors and stress the whole area.

Our entire system depends on nerve endings to tell us what’s happening and where, so we can repair or replenish or whatever.

A huge problem for people with facial skin and hair issues is that strong chemicals put the nerve endings into a hypnosis so they keep reporting the same thing – say “dehydration” when there isn’t dehydration, causing underlying swellings, lumps and so on. Or extra oil or none of it. You get the picture. The nerve ending reports aren’t true in the moment, they’re true to another moment they’re hypnotized in, a time loop.

Poppy’s amazing ability to be in the moment, snaps the nerve endings (and us) out of the hypnosis.

Isn’t it amazing how a substance known to CAUSE deep sleep or hpnosis actually is just bringing a person out of the spin of the wake-sleep cycle they were in?

We assume that being in this moment means “waking up”, while it could be that to be in this moment for real, we should be somewhat asleep.

There’s no need to take Poppy or Opium in huge doses for its spin breaking help. One drop of the tincture is enough.

Poppy seeds are available as a culinary item. You just put about a quarter of a t-spoon into a soup or sprinkle over whatever you’re having. It goes with sweet things very well too. I LOVE poppy seed vanilla cake. The smell is enough. It’s so beautiful. I once had a poppy seed soap that I loved.

It’s a great all round holistic healer.

Larkspur or Staphgsagriya

Over the years I’ve come to depend on Larkspur in the worst mental and energy jams. Especially to do with repressed anger. An energy field spinning with unexpressed anger or rage is just hell to live with. I stop being able to digest my food, stop being able to do anything. Often I don’t know what it is that has made me feel like that. It’s not just about anger, there are other strong emotions, and it’s possible sometimes that we’re mentally too occupied to notice that we’ve had an incident that’s provoked a strong emotion, and we don’t even know it happened.

But our subconscious is on fire, our body is feeling inflamed, we’re doing crazy things like binge eating ice-cream to calm the inflammation down. Or binge drinking or doing weird things for us like spending time with someone we don’t like in a place we hate.

You get the picture.

I don’t know how Larkspur does it, Ed. But every time I’ve been n those situations and taken a drop of the tincture of Larkspur, later that evening or some hours later, I’ll realize that it worked. I literally physically feel the release of tension in my body, in my bones. It’s not always dramatic but it can be sometimes.

I have the confidence to write to you about it, Ed, because I have experienced it myself so very many times. It’s an amazing spin breaker.

Wormwood or Artimisia Absinthium

I first heard about it when reading a booklet about the life of artists in the 1800s and early 1900s in Paris. They apparently hung around these little cafes selling Absinthe, a hard liquor derived from this plant.

Now it wasn’t exactly the cheapest plant available. It’s not like beer wasn’t available or other liquors. There’s a reason why this liquor has been associated with artists and the art world.

It’s a spin breaker herb. It brings a person back down to basics.

It came to me in a pot I bought from a nursery with some other flowers. Those flowers’ season came and went and then I saw this plant growing. And I fell in love with it.

It was near the front door, and every time I opened the front door I saw it first because its energy field was so beautiful, compared anyone standing at the front door.

Only creeps came to the door that year, so it was good that I had a sweet cheerful friend there every time I opened it. Interestingly, Ed, it was the year of my life, I stopped being polite to people I didn’t want to have anything to do with, ringing the doorbell and asking me inane questions trying to strike up conversations.

The social spin I used to be in before where I would be so polite and answer stupid questions and all that, that broke. Wormwood has saved me so much time and peace of mind, just by being near the front door.

I welcomed the angel into my life when I harvested the herb that year and it’s now something I have regularly as part of my lifestyle. I have the oil extract of it, in the kitchen on the counter and have it whenever I feel the instinct.

She’s like my mother. The feelings and emotions I have that originate in my womb, feminine feelings… I cannot describe them any other way… feelings that draw me in and confuse and frustrate me, feelings that are a pain in my heart that I can’t put in words… when they clog me; when I feel unable to move fearlessly because of inner anxiety to do with my physical condition, then I have few drops of the oil – or the tincture.

You can see why artists, who are are sensitive to moon energies and water, have been attracted to this herb so. It’s on that frequency.

It breaks the spin of emotions that might be so slight it’s hard to pin point them, but spinning at such a frequency as to be clogging up energy.
