Living in the high country in a remote area it’s important to always stay stocked up and prepared with provisions for the long term. Food, water, wood, vehicle supplies, fuel and medical supplies are needed for everyday life and that’s no different for us. We can’t run to the store for Advil or bread or gas if we run out. So the goal is to not run out. We always think of next week, next month, next winter and we plan accordingly. With this in mind I follow several prepper sites for information, tips, and ideas. I’ve gleaned some great information and I’m grateful for the effort that people go to to share their knowledge. But over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking... what happens when the preps run out? Living like we do I’ve relied on the resources in the forest we live in to provide for and to supplement our needs: food, water, wood, etc. but I’m curious about others... How do they plan for a worst case scenario? (Whatever that is to you. ) What will people do? What happens or what’s the long term plan when their supplies run out? I know what we’ll do - basically what we’re doing now. But the concern for others still lingers. Some may think it’s easy to come up here and just “live off the land.” But it’s not easy. And there’s a steep learning curve that goes from surviving to thriving in the wild and that will likely leave people starving in the interim. It takes a good 5 years to learn what works and what doesn’t. So anyway, just a few thoughts and a few questions here. Please leave your thoughts, plans, ideas in the comments. I’d like to know what others think 🐾💕! #prepping #prepper #bushcraft #homesteading #livingwild #forestdweller #shtf #doomsday #planningahead #futureplans

Autumn spirits have arose. 🍂✨ Their celtic conversations within the earth, have set mornings aflame with oceans of fog, clattered with crow calls. I feel stealth and a certain kind of productivity that only accompanies these coming colder months: floor length cloaks, stained coffee mugs, and wool knit scarves. 🧣🍄 . . . #dreaminginpictures #doortomywonderland #thewildnesstonic #moodmagic #ofwhimsicalmoments #quietinthewild #whimsicalwonderfulwild #faerie #forestdweller #awakethesoul #ravenclaw #lightinspired #gloomandglow #forestfaerie #longhair #morigirl #faeriefolk #woodlandfairy #hobbitlife #aseasonalyear #celticwitch #druidry #paganism #witchyvibes

Maybe if I can go back one last time when grandpa was alive and had a happy chat with him about life, and told my grandma how much I look up to her and her hardworking self. Both will sadly never happen as in my family we are not good at expressing how we feel about each other. But the only way we express our feelings is by doing things, above and beyond our means, for each other. So if i ever bent over my back to do something for you, know i love you so💌. And why I'm reminded of gramps was, grandma is who gave mum the recipe for this incredible turmeric and herbs facemask and she still harvests and dries her gazillion roses, chrysanthemums and lemons for mum to send them to me. She's 78 i think. And she still does that and she probably thinks i don't acknowledge it but i just don't know how to acknowledge it without using words that's all. She is the world's coolest herbalist and that weak, short, skinny old woman doesn't even know it. Grandpa was the man with most integrity i seent in my life. Also grandpa and plants were grandma's happiness. She has been overcompensating with the remaining half since she lost one half, that silly old woman😔 . . . . . . #plantmagic #planttalk #plantfolk #herbalremedies #herbalism #folkmagic #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantpowered #plantmedicine # #plantmagick #backtonature #earthmedicine #deepnatureconnection #heartmedicine #naturesbasket #wildcrafted #wildplants #forestdweller #forestlady #wandering #ancestormedicine #wildernessculture #wildwoman #wildness #wildplants #foresttreasures #takeamoment #talisman #turmeric #ayurveda

Radar’s doing great, but the vet wants us to keep him in the cone, (we’ve switched to pyjamas ) and slowly introduce activity 🙄He has two settings: on/off, no slowly, gradually or little bit. Go fast or sleep. I don’t think we’re going to make it another 5 days. 🥴 #chihuahua #childofthewoods #childoftheforest #forestdweller #morikeilifestyle

Aborted Entoloma aka Shrimp of the woods (Entoloma abortivum. ) We went out for a wander in the woods and spotted these. I showed our oldest little (age 4 ) and he found more than half of this little haul. I start teaching them as early as possible how to feed themselves and heal themselves off the land around them. Some of these are a bit past their prime for eating but I'm a very proud mama. We have never tried them before next step is to fry them and do some tasting. ***Please always double check and consult with a professional before eating or using any wild plant or mushroom.

QOTD: What books do you find comforting? ✨☕️🍂 🕯 I remember an illustration in a magical children’s book. It depicts a family gathered around the fireplace, as one member reads aloud to the rest. The living room walls and windows are merging with an enchanted forest, so it’s impossible to tell where the room ends and the world beyond (the world in the book )begins. I love that feeling of sitting in the comfort of my home while my mind journeys vast distances as I read. I can go anywhere, be anyone. This time of year I tend to revisit old, familiar books. I turn to my book friends when I need to feel safe and secure. I wander country lanes with Cassandra Mortmain, daydream with Anne Shirley, solve mysteries with Poirot. And maybe, just maybe I see bits of myself in each of these characters. Perhaps they bring me comfort because they are a part of me. . . . . . . . #enchantedsimplicity comfort read #humansofbookstagram #takeyourbookoutside #booksinnature #faesreading #onequietcup #homeisacupoftea #bookishhygge #hyggetime #faeriesofinstagram #woodlandrealm #forestdweller #weareforestfolk #forestfaerie #forestcaptures #woodlandfairy #aseasonalyear #iwroteabook #indieauthorsofinstagram #themagicofbookstagram #writelife #writerslifeforme #writerslifestyle #tinytinymoments #capturequiet #calmversation #bookwitch #autumnglow

A rusted desk with a peculiar paperback copy of Guinness Book of World Records 2000 in its drawer, and a rusted trash bin. I will admit on nights I forget to pick up a free issue of treasure hunter from the gas station, I’ve been using pages from said book as a fire starter, and the trash bin here actually serves as a fine stand for a practice pad to drum on. I can’t wait for the autumn when everything dies down, a friend of mine has told me before that a complete fox skeleton lies right around the trees a few paces forward but for some reason I’ve yet to be able to find it. Various boards and thick rope lie upon the ground as well as fallen trees with signatures as far back as the 80s. Beyond into these woods I have not yet travelled. I know these lands are quite old. A road which parallels a mile or two away from this spot passes by the ruins of a massive church. I should go back and visit, it’s been quite a while, the reason I keep forgetting about it is because of how out in the open it is. What is with people making busy roads next to ancient temples, take the Stonehenge for example, way to kill the atmosphere! Anyway, back to this area, an old time bar is situated about a mile down the tracks, every time I walk that way I always without fail see a family of foxes. Usually I find some pretty great animal bones as well. The last time I walked that way I found a giant mangey multi colored teddy bear tied to a post that appeared to have been stabbed multiple times. The train comes down quite quickly so you always have to be on high alert. I think one weekend I would like to explore the rest of these woods. They seem to exhale a vibe that which comes across as completely foreign to me. Happy Thors day everyone! 🦊 #witchwriter #writer #creativewriting #spiritualwriting #magickwriting #forestlife #forestdweller #forestchild #naturelove #natureworship #naturechild #wanderer #traveler #nomad #explorer #stayferal #stayadventurous #solitarywitch #eclecticwitch #greenwitch #forestwitch #oldsoul #occult #foxspirit #witchesofinstagram #witchessociety #pagansofinstagram #heathensofinstagram

Is there anything more relaxing than a crispy fall day and a warm bowl of hearty soup and a toasted baguette? This was my copycat version of Panera Bread's Autumn Squash Soup and it was divine! A perfect blend of hot and sweet to warm deep into your bones on a chilly evening. I'm also really looking forward to dusting off the crock pot for the majority of my week nights in fall and winter. 🖤⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #myseasonalstory #quiettime #forestdweller #quietinthewild #noticingmagic #thesincerestoryteller #vintagelover #thatmagicmood #myeverydaymagic #littlewoodlandwhimsies #midwestisbest #pagansofinstagram #witchesofinstagram

White and blue crackle agate, plus a white howlite focal stone, is a powerhouse of a healing bracelet! This combination not only dispels negativity around the wearer, but also helps with increased patience and understanding. Perfect for those tough work environments or classrooms, this bracelet is sure to be a great addition to any outfit! 🔮

{ when i heal myself i heal my ancestors } We are living in a paradigm where - more than ever - folks are seeking connection within a disconnected and disenfranchised existence we have come to accept as normal. But this is not our innate 'normal'. No. It belongs to big pharmaceuticals and government agencies that are systematically dismantling our innate connection to the land, to our magick, to our roots, to...to...to... My beloved sister, These systems of control and assimilation have purposefully prevented us from easily accessing plants to heal... our physical temples, our emotions, our thoughts, our disempowered spirits... and have forced us to adopt allopathicy as a means of treating dis-ease. But again, they didn't know we were seeds. We are rising - strength in numbers - and taking our power back by returning to the way our ancestors lived in alignment with the seasons, and in connection to the land. This reclaimed ancestral wisdom lives in our DNA...in the marrow of our bones...in the blood that courses through our veins. These seeds...they are shaking us awake and holding space for us to remember an innate connection to our magick that is flesh and bone... And though our ancestors may have walked different paths from the other...and though you and I may walk different paths from the other, we all come from people who used plants. Sister, I see you. I see the Christian Wound that causes you pain and disconnection from your true self... It will take us time to catch up and relearn the skills that have been lost with the colonization of the Christian message so many moons ago... This path of unlearning + relearning will require patience and compassion and understanding and a village.... As we sojourn through this healing journey individually - and as a collective - let us remember the common roots that bind us. After all, we rise by lifting others. --》 it isn't necessary for you to walk this path of unlearning on your own. Join your sisters in a FREE safe, sacred container @ facebook.com/groups/sistersofthefringe Launches OCT 17th / ALL SISTERS WILL BE ADDED AT 11:11 AM Blessed be, beloved. #plantmedicine

Self-Portrait/Affirmation Pt. 6 “I will not dim my light for the comfort of others” . Can I get an AMEN? . WHY? Why do we feel like our true selves are too much for others? When were we told that we needed to rein ourselves in to keep other people comfortable? So many times over our lives we are told we are “too much.” Maybe you’ve been told you are too emotional, too loud, too quiet, or too serious. Or are you too opinionated, too indecisive or too complicated? (Yup, I’ve been told EACH of those! ) But guess what? That’s alllllllll bullshit! . I’ve recently realized that I have been listening to these voices around me and in doing so have held in my true feelings, thoughts and desires. I’ve often chosen to keep things to myself in order to avoid making people uncomfortable…but maybe a part of it is to avoid making myself uncomfortable too. Because it’s hard when you put yourself out there. Sometimes you get rejected or told to change or quiet down. I have this crazy need to be liked. I used to get so upset when people would say negative or unkind things about me. I mean, why can’t they like me? I’m super nice, funny, smart, etc…why doesn’t this person, or this person like me? But woah! That is super damaging! Peoples opinions of you are not a reflection of who you are as a person. Not everyone is going to get you, and that is okay. This is not a popularity contest. This is real life, and if at the end of the day if you are not being your TRUE SELF, you will end up feeling unfulfilled, overwhelmed and disappointed. . When you stop basing your decisions on other peoples opinions, and start listening to your own inner voice, that is when things fall in to place. You will never get to where you want to be if you are hiding who you are or trying to make everyone like you! You are so valuable. You are so important. You bring so much to the world by just being yourself! . So shine bright, don’t hold back! What you have to offer is so important and valuable. Don’t let anyone dim your light! ✌️&💚
