I realized that the whole time I thought I was crazy, I was just sensitive. I was just really, really sensitive. I took on what people were feeling around me as if they were some extension of my body and my own emotional mind, and these feelings were real, undeniable, and uncontrollable. I was overwhelmed and tired of feeling exhausted by the constant shifts of my moods, and other people’s too.

Lana Del Rey on Metaphysics

What does metaphysics entail?

“It’s not as complicated as it sounds. There’s different branches so it depends on which branch you’re studying. If you’re studying something like cosmogony, you’re studying about the origins of the universe, and how reality came to be reality. Like this space that we’re sitting in now — how did we come to inhabit this place? And why this reality strikes us as it is. I studied that up in the Bronx.”

“It bridged the gap between God and science.”

“I went to college. At Fordham. I didn’t live at school, I lived where I could and studied what I enjoyed studying. I took what I wanted from that education but was making my first record at the same time. I don’t know anyone from school. I was just leading a different life. I was really interested in writing and other things.”

“I just had different priorities. I was reading and writing. I was pursuing my own education [laughs] which paid off, I’ve learned so many different things.” 

“When I was studying philosophy my teacher told me that it’s okay to feel like the people you’re closest to aren’t alive anymore. Sometimes that is the best company to keep. It’s about the people that pondered the same questions as you did, and had the same sort of life mentality as you. I was upset and inspired by that premise.”

“Well, I graduated with a metaphysics degree and I loved philosophy, I’ve kind of gone back to things that made me feel excited about learning maybe six years ago when I was in school.”

“Well, I mixed it with my studies in theology, because it was the best school for the Jesuit faith and all of the Jesuits taught philosophy classes. There was just a lot of talk about going back to that basic question: Why do we exist? How did reality come to be? Why do we do what we do? And how not to become the butcher, the baker, the candlestickmaker, the guardians of the middle-class—that really interested me. I don’t know. Yeah, I loved being around people who wondered why we were here.”

“The act of surrendering sort of puts me in a different mindset that allows me to be more of a channel — because I’m not holding on so tightly to things, I’m letting go, and I find that in letting go I become more of a channel for life to really happen on life’s terms. I mean, maybe that sounds sort of metaphysical, but that’s honestly how I feel.”

“I want to stay hopeful, even though I get scared about why we’re even alive at all.”

“I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities.”

“It’s not as complicated as it sounds. There’s different branches so it depends on which branch you’re studying. If you’re studying something like cosmogony, you’re studying about the origins of the universe, and how reality came to be reality. Like this space that we’re sitting in now – how did we come to inhabit this place? And why this reality strikes us as it is.”

“The term metaphysics has been, the meaning of it, it means something different now than obviously what Aristotle meant when he wrote his first books on metaphysics and invented that term. I mean now it kind of suggests more of like a new age, a new age way of life. Which actually I’m also interested in those new age books which more have to do with visualizing the future you’d like to manifest into reality and that kind of  has more of a metaphysical, you would call that like a metaphysical book. But originally it was philosophers trying to trace back the study of the origin of the soul and how the origin of reality came to be. Like so how did we end up here in the studio today? You know it concerns the big bang theory or.. you know whether or not this reality is really happening in real time. It’s just that there’s so many different branches but it’s a science of questions, no answers. I think people who get into metaphysics go to universities to study it, to like sit in groups to and talk about why we’re here. Talking about ancient philosophy, it kind of leads to more conversations about how do we become more innovative with technology so we can find out what happened at the beginning by getting closer to the end, to space really, space travel now. Getting closer to seeing what’s out there and beyond. WelI, it’s just such an interesting thing to think about. I’m obviously not the first person to present this question but if we all collectively started to think about what else was out there and pooled all of our imaginations (which is the most important thing), and then resources, and knowledge and money and intelligence towards what’s out there even further. Richard Branson has been very helpful in our advances in space travel and he’s going to continue to kind of, I think, push us all forward with making it really easy to.. *gets cut off by interviewer* “It’s in talking about it where it all begins and that’s something.” (x)

“I was interested in God and how technology could bring us closer to finding out where we came from and why.”

“I majored in metaphysics in college, that’s what I got my degree in. And the reason I chose that was because the Jesuits who were teaching that subject, they weren’t just theologians, they also had backgrounds in science. Obviously the quest for peace, the quest for knowledge of something bigger is…that’s the end game. That’s what I’m really interested in. But technology, I believe, is bringing us closer to maybe figuring out some of those questions, and I think we’ve really seen that in the last ten years. I’m interested just like probably anybody else is. I guess meeting people like Elon Musk and people involved in the tech world in different ways has been interesting to me.” 

“I love the discussions I had with Elon Musk this year, and I enjoyed my talk with (geneticist/ molecular biologist) John Hardy, who is trying to understand what causes Alzheimer’s.” “One of the most promising techniques I learned about was optogenetics: a biological technique that involves the use of light to control cells in living tissue.”

“It’s not only intergalactic possibilities that interest me, it’s the exciting technological horizon we’re looking at right now. There are a lot of people I’m interested in, but I like what Sergey Brin, Yuri Milner and Mark Zuckerberg are doing with the Breakthrough Prize Awards in fundamental physics and life sciences. I think it’s important to have the same amount of attention, focus and glamour (if that’s what’s needed) to bring science to the forefront of people’s everyday lives in the same way that politics or celebrity culture do now.”

Very young. Poetry, then short stories, then finally songs, awful ones initially. I studied philosophy and metaphysics. I finally knew that there were people like me, a bit weird, out of it. In Lake Placid, there weren’t many people who shared my universe, so the books became my close friends. They’d tell me about New York, about people of whom I became close. I recovered this mood studying philosophy, surrounded by people who weren’t ashamed of questioning, of asking “why do we exist?” instead of “what will the weather be tomorrow?”

“So I wanted to study philosophy. I was overwhelmed by the world and I hallucinated things of concern to other people: what do we do now, where do we go on vacation?, Do you like my shoes? I, however, was always looking for a guide, a sign, a higher power.”

Fear of something is always guaranteed to attract what you fear. The energy of fear attracts like energy and so what you fear becomes what you physically experience. Fear of being without money becomes the circumstances in which you are without money. Fear of being alone, rejected or attacked all become that physical experience unless you deal with the source of the energy which manifests these things - YOU.

Weeds for Witches Part II: Clover.

This is taken from the blog by Sarah Anne Lawless. She has a fantastic witchy blog and I highly recommend it, here.

Where it Grows: Wild Clovers can be found all over Europe and North America mainly in meadows and bright sunny spots. It does like a little bit of shade and suffers in hot dry weather. Red Clover is larger with taller stems and big purple to pink flower heads. White Clover is smaller, closer to the ground, and has smaller white flower heads and sometimes variegated leaves.

Growing & Harvesting: Clover is actually commonly planted by farmers as a cover crop or sown in fallow fields as it is known to naturally restore nitrogen to the soil. Scatter clover seeds all over your grass lawn in spring or early fall and you’ll never have to fertilize your lawn again. Clover doesn’t mind compacted soil at all so let your children run wild over it. Planting clover in your lawn will also attract honey bees and other beneficial insects to your yard. This is especially beneficial if you have a vegetable or herb garden that needs pollinating. Clover seeds are easily found in just about any seed catalogue or local garden centre. Continually harvest the flower heads of Red Clover as they bloom and dry them for a medicinal tea or for use in magic.

Magic: Clover is one of the oldest cultivated plants. It has been used both medicinally and magically since ancient times. Although modern folklore has this three-leaved plant being associated with the Christian Holy Trinity, the association of plants with three leaves goes much further back into Pagan times.  The ancient Greeks and Romans associated it with their triple Goddesses and the Celts considered it a sacred symbol of the Sun. It is the national flower of Ireland, but the association with St. Patrick is actually more modern. In folk magic Red Clover is used in a ritual bath to attract money and prosperity to the bather and is also used as a floorwash to chase out evil and unwanted ghosts. White Clover is used for breaking curses and is worn as a sachet or put in the four corners or a house or someone’s property to achieve this. The four-leaf clover is a very famous good luck charm believed to protect from evil spirits, witches, disease, and the evil eye. This familiar childhood rhyme for a four-leaf clover actually originates from the Middle Ages:

One leaf for fame, one leaf for wealth,
One for a faithful lover,
And one leaf to bring glorious health,
Are all in a four-leaf clover

All of these together are supposed to give one the happiest and most fulfilling life possible. Four-leaf clovers are also traditionally used to see fairies and other spirits, to heal illnesses, and to avoid being drafted into the military. Three leaved-clovers are worn as a protective talisman and two-leaved clovers are used by young women to get a glimpse of a future lover. With its three leaves, Clover is a very shamanic plant allowing one to see into and interact with the Otherworld. It is a good talisman of protection and power for traveling out of body and walking between worlds. Never underestimate the magical power of this simple and harmless weed. It also makes a good offering to Mercurial deities and can be burned as a herbal incense, added to alcoholic brews, or left with a food offering.

Medicine: Clovers are very good for both your health and your livestock animals’ health (if you have any). They are rich in nutrients and vitamins and the leaves and flowers can be added to salads or used as garnish. Use the new green leaves when eating them raw, but you can also add the tougher older leaves to sautéed or steamed greens like spinach and kale. You can even add the leaves into stir fries, soups, and pasta sauces, but add them last and just cook until wilted to retain the nutrients. Even the roots can be eaten when cooked. You can batter and fry Clover flowers just like Elder flowers.  The flowers of both types of clover can be used to make homemade wines. Red Clover flowers are steeped to make a popular tea which, although drunk for pleasure, can be used to treat liver and gallbladder issues, stomach and digestive issues, as well as for women’s menstrual and fertility issues.
