Our journey to create an intentionally simple and self-sufficient Homestead in Missouri.
Our new website
For herbs I don't grow, this is my favorite place!
On our site, you will see selected links to books that have been valuable to our homesteading, permaculture, spiritual, health and natural building paths and links to products we use or feel are ethical. Purchasing any of these products through my site will help contribute to our homesteading success and our teaching others to do the same.
(As usual, I have to apologize for blogger.com's horrible formatting and at times lack of or too much space between bullet points.. It is completely random. There's not a thing I can do about it but switch to another blog format, which I'm working on.)
After writing this post, something seemed wrong or missing; I didn't feel comfortable posting it. I bought two used books on sleep paralysis to see if there was something obvious I missed and to see what others have found that helped. In late 2000 when I started looking for solutions, I couldn't find one book specifically about sleep paralysis (SP) or exhaustion that helped. Lots of other books put together did help (a list at the end), though they were on topics from physics to mindfulness. From those books and experimenting, I found things that worked for me, the things I'm writing about here. I'm also including things I have found more recently that I also think will help. I'm not aprofessional healer and some of my terminology is just a stab at the best description.
My husband and I are organic gardeners using permaculture practices and
living off-grid in the Missouri Ozarks. We are building a small earth sheltered home without a mortgage. Our
goal, like many “homesteaders” is being as self sufficient as possible.
We are amateurs, leaving our traditional professions of a software
tester and musician, so we are having to learn as we go.
Besides green building, my interests are in health, herbalism, food
forests and learning how to live the way people were meant to live.
