Take Away Pain Chant

My children grew up sbelieving that just a kiss from mom or grandma would take away their “ouchie”. When my grandchildren came along, after reaching about 2 years old, most did not believe just a mom or grandma kiss would make “boo-boo” stop hurting. So I got a little more creative witchy style by changing the lyrics to the children’s song “Rain, Rain go away…” to chant to help their pain go away

Repeat chant either 3 or 6 or 9 times depending on how long it takes you to minister 1st aid to the child. This chant is strictly for minor scrapes, cuts, and falls. It the injury requires stitches or a head injury causes any length of the child being unconscious, dizziness, double vision, etc seek professional medical care immediately.

Pain, pain go away Chant

Pain, pain go away. Don’t come back another day. Little (child’s name) wants to play.

My youngest granddaughter use this on me when I had tried outside scraping my palms and knees. She very gently wiped the spots with a soapy, dripping washcloth blowing on the abrasion when I flinched. Yes, I had a small mess in my bathroom after she was through being my “doctor” complete with wearing a surgical hat and medicine gloves, as she called them but the cleanup was worth it.

Birthday Horoscope Of People Born On May 30 Zodiac Sign Is Gemini

May 30 birthday horoscope predicts that you are a unique and reliable Gemini. You are always in good spirits, and you could have a weird wit that sets you apart from others born under the same zodiac sign. Be that as it may, you like to meet and greet. People trust you with their most terrible secrets.

As a May 30th birthday personality, you prefer an intimate setting or person-to-person contact rather than a group setting. You have your way of thinking.

But like to hear other people’s opinions in hopes to hear a different version of the circumstances. Besides, you are a smart cookie with lots of inquisitiveness and ingenuity. This quality makes you a master at multi-tasking.

Your spirit gives you the energy to handle frustrations, setbacks, and hindrances. You tend to get the advice of friends or peers but rarely takes it. As the May 30 zodiac sign is Gemini, you are effective communicators as you have excellent verbal skills, which probably make you charming.

Individuals born on this Gemini birthday are considerate people. Also, you could be more self-centered. It is a matter of being born a “twin.”  You can be in favor of one day and against the next. This could be a compliment to your personality as it keeps relationships exciting. Making up is just one small part of this Gemini’s inclination to be contrary.

The most successful love partnerships for a person with a May 30 zodiac birthday are one, which is open to discussions about feelings, or one that allows them to act spontaneously. You would like to share dreams and goals with a soul mate, as you are highly imaginative. You enjoy the pleasures of talking intimately with your partner while cuddling in bed or enjoying a bubble bath together.

The May 30 birthday meanings show that the perfect job gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment. You could be well suited to work in several areas, but one, in particular, will keep you motivated and interested. You have loads of enterprising ideas, and your business sense gives the creditably to make some wise business decisions.

The May 30th horoscope predicts that as you are a great organizer, you’d do well at catering events, large and small. You also know how to manage money. Personally, you may have an account set aside just for emergencies. These birthday characteristics make you an ideal candidate for management positions. Because you know how to save money, you are likely not to have any financial concerns of your own. In fact, you can even help others plan their finances.

The May 30 birthday horoscope also predicts that this Gemini can have an on again/off again relationship with his or her health care. While you try to watch what you eat, it’s those little treats in between the time that throws out the objective of eating healthy. However, you do work out.

You keep fit, but you neglect the signs your body shows you that something is not right. Take for example Fatigue, moodiness, and sleeplessness are all signs of stress and tension. Those born on this day would do well to listen and make an appointment to see the doctor if necessary.

The May 30 birthday personality is joyful, funny, open and you have a special way doing things. Your way. You prefer one-on-one contact and a lover than someone who is highly charged and creative. As a career, you do well in a commercial setting or in a job in which organizing is a big part of it.

Those born today work out routinely but are not fussy about what they eat. Take care of yourself as stress has a way of making you frown. Where there’s a frown, there is a wrinkle. The Gemini born on May 30 can be arrogant people.
