King of Cups by Mark Nicholas

Mark Nicholas Spiritual Guidance
February is traditionally and symbolically seen as the beginning of Spring in Ireland. New growth may not be immediately visible under cover of the ground, but the impulse to create new shoots has begun. This is the month when we will see new lambs literally springing in the fields, running in joyous groups, excited to be together, alive!
The King of Cups sits on his throne surrounded by water, but not quite coming into contact with it. He may have temporarily retreated from the material world. His vision of life and immense knowledge comes from his own subconscious exploration of the Self. He is looking further, wider and deeper than usual. He is finding new ways to awaken the creative powers and to create Hope. Such inspiration can be achieved by breaking down the boundaries which obstruct clear passage and by the removal of creative and emotional blockages. Accepting that the small irritations of life do not always mirror the big picture can be a step toward emotional freedom and clarity of thought, allowing the true passions and desires to take hold and grow into something more substantial. read more →

Ace of Wands by Mark Nicholas

Spiritual Guidance, Mark Nicholas Only Natural
We made it through another Christmas and another year! Now as we pass through the thin veil into 2020 we leave the difficulties of 2019 behind and allow a new hope to enter our lives. January takes it’s name from Janus, God of gateways and doorways, he who represents all beginnings, and because of his two faces, has the ability to see all things past and future. This January is particularly special as it also marks the beginning of a new decade. read more →

Recipe of the Month – Carrot and Sleabhcán Cake

Marie Power The Sea Gardener Recipe of the Month
This recipe comes from The Sea Garden, a recipe book which we now stock, by Marie Power, The Sea Gardener.  Kim attended a foraging and cookery day hosted by Marie and was so impressed that firstly we started to stock her range of bars and dried seaweeds but secondly we are all starting to put more and more seaweed into our cooking – which can only be a good thing right?

I substituted Marie’s sweets and baking blend (a mixture of Sweet Kelp and Sleabhcán) for the Sleabhcán itself. The results were delicious and super nutritious. read more →

Temperance by Mark Nicholas

Mark Nicholas, Only Natural Temperance
Temperance is a card of Faith. Spiritually, this marks the part of the journey when we suddenly realise that we have already passed beyond known civilisation. We find ourselves travelling alone through the wilderness. We didn’t notice the transition as we journeyed from a countryside of lush greenery to a dry desert of heat and extremes. Our awareness just suddenly returned to show us where we are now. We know we have been prepared for the journey, we have everything we need to survive. Once again we assume the role of child who reaches adulthood. No longer can we rely on parental supports, we need to stand on our own two feet. The teaching we have received since early childhood will stand to us now. Our Individual must step up and be counted. This is Spiritual elevation. We have the ability to move nearer to the Divine. read more →

Recipe of the Month – Mediterranean Chicken and Chickpea Stew

Recipe of the Month, Only Natural, Oliver McCabe
A tireless advocate of natural health in Ireland is natural food chef and author Oliver McCabe and, as I chatted to Ollie at the Vitality Expo, I thought of how long it had been since we’ve shared one of his wonderful recipes. So as we head into the time when we all want nourishing and warming soups and casseroles here’s Oliver’s recipe for Mediterranean Chicken and Chickpea Stew. What a doddle, prep it in 15 minutes, cook it in 40! Because of the addition of herbs and spices, olives and lemons the flavour is divine and the lean protein, chickpeas and millet make it super nutritious. Try this one when there’s a chill in the air and your body’s craving comfort. read more →
