Anyway some of my favorite tall socks have gotten quite worn. I started getting irritated with my toes popping through them…ahhh! NO NO NO! I don’t want to through away my AWESOME socks, I say!!! LOL kind of comical huh? Soooo how do I save my tall socks?
I cut off the bad part (heel down) and slipped them over my arms. LIGHT BULB! DING DING DING! So I looked up how to so the edges so they won’t fray out all over the place. Through my research (I don’t know how to sew anything more than a straight stitch…LOL) I found what stitch to use. Looked in my sewing machine’s instruction manual to learn how to do the stitch modified the length and width directions a bit for what I had envisioned.
Ok so using the double-over-locking stitch pattern with a length of 2 and a width of 4 I sewed the edges of my arm warmers. I then cut a tiny slit where I wanted my thumb to poke through and used the same stitch around the hole the slit created. In the future I will probably use the button hole directions for the thumb slots though.
Drum roll please….here is the result:
Not bad for my first time sewing something other than a straight stitch…huh? I like the way the main opening ended up kind of frilly too. I think I might buy 2 pairs of matching socks from now on so that my socks and arm warmers will match. Yea!

Everyone and everything (matter) as well as all spaces in between (non-matter) has a field of vibration. Earthway calls this "vibrationary fields of matter and nonmatter." In order to live a more natural and healthy life we need to learn how to tune our own field of vibration to harmonize or match our surrounding's field of vibration. Much like we tune a piano.
Everything is one living thing moving as one. Everything's magnetic energy pushes and pulls on everything around it therefore everything has an influence on everything else.
In the Anasazi tradition even their healing practices correlate to the ruling planet's magnetic pull and field of vibration.
This is an ongoing article so please stay tuned for updates. I will be adding information from various sources in the near future.

We all share a bond with nature and the cosmos because we have the same genetic coding. "Within us lives the universe, the Grand Cosmic Lifeforce of the Source itself." We have always been "connected to the stars like some big mother's cord." Everything is one living thing moving as one.
Now with this conscious knowledge we need to learn to love each other and become one with everything just as the Earth Mother loves and cares for us. We need to learn to love and live with nature and amongst each other. Becoming in sync with all spirits of life. This will lead to a more natural healthy way of life.
Everything in the sky effects us including our own weather. You acknowledge this every time you say, "I'm feeling a little under the weather." The animals are often better at sensing coming storms than we are. In Earthway we are reminded that we have the same sensing instincts we just need to remember how to use them and practice using them. If a cow can sense a storm coming isn't it then sensing something that will happen in the future? Why then is it so hard for us to believe that we to can tell the future? Even in some small sense. All it takes is an open mind, and an awareness of the Earth and Universe around us.
This is an ongoing article so please stay tuned for updates. I will be posting information from various sources in the future.

Ancient cultures had knowledge of healing the Earthway. They drew upon the knowledge of their ancient ancestors through entering altered states. This allowed them to tap into the universal wisdom.
According to Earthway anyone can tap into this knowledge when they are ready. You only have to be sensitive enough. If you have an open mind and are aware of the Earth and Universe around you, you can tap into this knowledge.
This might not seem like much information right now but it is an ongoing article that will be updated as I research the information available to me. So stay tuned this article will be huge!

Healing methods are based on the month (season's) magnetic pull and vibrational frequency. For more information on each planet's influence and months of influence please see the following links.
Shamans are individuals who are religious leaders as well as healers. They practice healing the body as well as the soul. All Native American tribes had a Shaman, Medicine Man, or Witch Doctor. They practice in similar ways although they do not follow a specific set of religious guidelines as defined today.
Physical treatments the Shamans used included ointments, herbalism, and using tools such as a hollow bone to suck poison out of the body and sharp flints to cut the skin. All of these would be very helpful in a natural crisis where someone may have been bitten by something venomous. One plant we know of that they used as a pain killer was the root of the black cohosh also known as squawroot.
This is an ongoing article that will be updated regularly as I come across information. It doesn't seem like much right now but has the potential to become a huge post. So stay tuned for updates.

Earthway is a way of natural living. Minerals, geology, botanicals and many more things work together toward healing.
Having a medicine bundle/bag is good medicine for the owner. I have sort of a medicine bag. In the traditional sense it is usually made of buckskin and contain small packages of healing herbs and special trinkets, crystals, rocks any kind of memento that is special and has a memory or meaning to the holder. It is considered very sacred and not to be shared with anyone. My current bag is just a crown royal bag but I plan to contact someone locally to try and learn how to make one traditionally as well as any rites that may accompany the making of the bag or I will find some directions and attempt it on my own.
In order to live in a more natural and healthy way we need to learn how to attune ourselves to the Earth's vibrations.
This is an ongoing article so stay tuned for future updates.
