Perfume Assault

A salesperson came to my door asking for me by name, so I didn’t know they were selling something until I opened the door.

It was a cheaper gas bill.

I was assaulted by perfume as I stepped outside. It was nauseating. She asked to see my bill. I said I’m paperless by the internet, then how about by phone or tablet

I asked for literature. She gave me the website. All they had was an iPad and saying I could have a flat rate for my gas of $5.99.

I wanted her to take a few steps away from me but I didn’t say anything but thought I could just get some info and get clear of her quickly.  I should have said something.

I went back inside nauseous and dizzy and didn’t have the where with all to connect it to the perfume for about a minute.

 

It was her

PERFUME STILL ASSAULTING MY SENSES — AH!

 

And still not completely recovered and it was an hour and a half ago.

I went to the website to register a complaint about her perfume, but no way to contact them except to call an 800 number about plans.

NO THANKS.

 

NOTE: Some people are just completely unaware of the effect they have on others and splash way too much cologne or perfume on thinking that this makes him or her more attractive when its the opposite and offensive. And in my case this time impactful on my health.

Building Human Reality

Lightheadthe author with an illusion of light – what is the illusion?

Introduction

Elon Musk was interviewed recently and reported great odds (in the billions) that we are in a computer generated reality. This implies an AI being controlled outside the scope of humans or previously more advanced humans from an ancient civilization. While possible there is another more insidious programming that already exists within human beings themselves.

We exist inside a virtual reality due to how our human limitations perceive what we call reality. Our perceptual facilities, our genetic code, our mammalian / biological nature in juxtaposition with: the biosphere, civilization, society, Planet Earth, the Solar System, the Milky Way galaxy, the multiverse factor in how we perceive / project reality.

Language is the means that we symbolize reality.

Humans have built reality and we are slaves to it. Very few have escaped slavery to become free.

The film “The Matrix” arose from a more insidious reality that we have already created – not built by AI but by the nature of humans as addictive beings who project their reality onto a wider world and then live within the narrow confines of the world that they have created. It’s easier to think that an advance AI created a simulated reality because this idea is yet another way to release us for our responsibilities to work to free ourselves from the slavery we have created. The forces of addiction and /or attachment are the elements or glue that hold the reality together and prevent slavery from being seen – so in short we believe we are free when we are enslaved.

 

Some basics of a finite system

When language was first developed ego began. Language is a structure of communication and processing thought into concepts. Language is the means that we symbolize reality. Symbolizing reality in this way is so entrenched in our lives we forget that it is a technology that defines and enslaves us within its linear time constraints. It is a seamless technology. Language defines and constrains who we are in some ways and liberates us in other ways but within its system of rules. Language separates us through subject and object connected through verbs and modifiers. Language defines us gives us identity and separates us from “me” and “not-me” concepts.

Humans seek to complete themselves, which is impossible under the finite rules of linear perception.

Ego and language are inseparable. Ego is identity in a group-based matrix or community / society / civilization. Ego and language make life possible, as we know it. Ego is the manager of linear time; it dictates what we do, how we do it, when we do it and what it means to us. Ego and language make curiosity possible. Sentences have a beginning, middle and end and are action-movies, they are motion driven along linear time.

I walked across the room.

“I” is the subject, “walked” the verb – past tense, “across” the preposition indicating location “the” definite article – making special the noun that follows it, “room” noun and object of the sentence. The sentence indicated that the action took place in the past along a linear time line.

If we were to form a sentence to satisfy the wholeness of our entire being there would no longer be a need to make more sentences. One of the reasons we create more sentences is to find completion. This is one of the bases of curiosity and creativity. However, language, ego and linear time are closed systems and human beings are open systems living with complex closed systems. Humans seek to complete themselves, which is impossible under the finite rules of linear perception.

Linear perception is grounded in many rules. Human perceptual faculties assist in supporting, defining and honing the rules that support slavery to the finite system. The finite system is invisible because we believe that we have free will. One reason for this belief is the life we live within this closed system. Open beings inside a closed system will always create illusions in order to believe that they are free. From the point of view of the closed system free will is a possibility, but a quick examination of our lives reveal many truths including how free will as we currently think of it is an illusion.

 

Actions, habits beliefs – the family

Setting societal class and money systems aside, we believe we live free of history, both personal, familial, racially, ethnically and nationally. So when we make a choice we assume it’s free because we are unaware of the underpinnings of that choice.

Family teaches children. Children inevitable learn “do as I say, not as I do,” from parents. We unconsciously adopt beliefs from our parents including behaviors that contradict those beliefs. Even when we rebel against a belief of our parents we are still bound by emotional glue to a reaction response, which holds us in a dyad of prescribed behavior. We learn from our parents who learned from their parents and so on throughout history.

My father rebelled against “the government” because he transposed his rebellion against his father to a entity that couldn’t thrash him directly. It was safer to rebel against something so big and impersonal as the government. I rebelled against my Father directly – against the war in Vietnam and he thrashed me. I rebelled against the republican and conservative philosophies as a way of rebelling against my father. Having “seen” these beliefs in my father and the emotional underpinnings of his behaviors I have forgiven him for his violence and manipulation against me. However I am still a slave to this behavior on some levels. Working on it.

We hold conflicting beliefs.

How we respond to romantic partners is shaped by our relationship to our opposite sexed or dominant parent and how we perceived the behavioral and emotional interactions with their partners. Part of our attraction to romantic partners is a desire to feel the familiar – how we felt in our families. Its what we know. When we become aware of this dynamic we may try to fix/heal our family of origin and /or our primary relationship as a way of resolving our relationship with our opposite sex partner or dominant partner and our mother or father. Or divorce and start again with the same or a different facet of the same person. Or we learn to live with our partner that represents something healthier.

We assume that the predominant personality presenting itself in the now is master of our world. The extreme of the Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly Multiple Personality Disorder) is on a continuum between the highly dysfunctional to a function acceptability of differs selves within us. There is no Master but an array of different selves that rise up from the sub or unconscious sea with us. For instance I might say I have decided to lose weight by cutting out sweets. Hours later I see a fudge chocolate cookie that I eat without a second thought. Who was it that ate that cookie in me? A whimsical impulse driven child perhaps? It certainly wasn’t the decider that chose hours before to stop eating sweets.

We hold conflicting beliefs. We may have high ethical beliefs but we may not follow them. A friend did a statistical study of 6th graders. She found that most all of the students had many altruistic beliefs but did not follow them depending on a number of factors.

Capitalism requires an increasing division of things and services and a consumer base to fuel the engine of this system. Media including the sensory input of all that is visual and auditory drives to capture and excite the whim in us with the pull of associative memory to capture our attention.

 

Attention

[I’m intentionally ignoring most of the traditional and invisible perceptual facilities that we utilize in navigating the world for investigation later.]

 Attention is the first building block of consciousness. An understanding three stances of attention is a useful tool in the quest to see beyond the projected reality we as humans have created.

First the rudimentary aspects of attention via The Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of attention:

1. a : the act or state of applying the mind to something Our attention was on the game. You should pay attention to what she says.
b : a condition of readiness for such attention involving especially a selective narrowing or focusing of consciousness and receptivity Students, do I have your attention?

  1.  : observation, notice; especially : consideration with a view to action a problem requiring prompt attention

all thinking is associative

 In the definition above is an implicit meaning of the focusing of attention from a subject to an object. Attention in linear time is associated with focus, a narrowing bandwidth in which to concentrate consciousness in an active and receptive fashion. When attention is focused it means to put aside extraneous associative thinking and concentration vision and auditory facilities on a point. Another facet of attention is the dualistic notion of the origin of attention – a person focusing and the object that the person is focusing on.

Humanity is caught in a dualistic dilemma, which limits thought to a binary sequence of on/off, either/or, right/wrong and so on. This is the dilemma of the pattern of all thinking. In short all thinking is associative. One though is associated with another. A human cannot hold two thoughts in consciousness at the same time. We can switch rapidly between two thoughts giving the illusion of multi-tasking. Many studies have debunked multitasking as a skill and show it as a way of shattering attention making the work less efficient.

Due to how we think as humans association naturally leads to dualistic thinking even though we all know that problems are more complex than black or white. Underneath the surface of associative thinking is a process that though fleeting at first can offer an in-between place between dualistic and /or associative thinking. This is a neutral place.

we are already enslaved by the history of beliefs, by the limits of perception, by habit that runs into a seamless unconscious flow

Before exploring the neutral place there are three centers of neuronal activity in the human body. The first is our top brain – the cerebral cortex, the second is the heart brain and the third is the gut brain. So far the discussion has involved only the cerebral cortex. [Aside: the other two brain impulses are always interpreted through the cerebral cortex.]

The Heart Brain is the seat of emotional impressions and regulates the heart muscle. The Gut Brain – or in Chinese Medicine – the Chi regulated the moving center or the Corporeal Body’s Brain as well as assimilation of nutrients and elimination of waste.

Expanding attention in a world that seeks to erode it is an increasingly difficult

Perhaps the neutral place was once a known intrinsic function of ancient humans before written history. Now it must be cultivated. The basis of its cultivation begins with the body and body knowing as the grounding of neutrality. Once neutrality has been noticed if only for fleeting moments then the fulcrum between duality begins to come into play. Attention begins to expand into higher forms. Attention is stretched as to allow more information to be processed especially when neutrality is cultivated.

 

Pushing Attention

As humans we are succumbing to sensory overload through the devices that stream technology and as a result our attention span is diminishing. Socio-economic forces fueled by power-possessors seeking to increasingly divide our attention and enslave us. And we are already enslaved by the history of beliefs, by the limits of perception, by habit that runs into a seamless unconscious flow. Room for play and creativity is nearly non-existent amongst children.

push the limits of reality

Expanding attention in a world that seeks to erode it is an increasingly difficult and unpopular task. Invariably during my work with clients trance-work is called for as a way of “seeing” the currents of habit that run below the surface of consciousness. Trance work requires dividing attention between what is being said and the flow underneath the speech. To effectively listen to their story and maintain a light trance state for receptively receiving impressions is made possible through the fulcrum of the neutral place. The trance state reveals an interdimensional reality that is at once separate and blended with the reality that we recognize.

Experimenting with lengthening attention and using attention in active / receptive and neutral ways then we can begin to push against the limits of how we project reality and become enslaved by it. The first step in solving a problem is recognizing that there is one.

We often equate perceptual attention with the visual. Our attention is drawn to something. The amount of visual stimuli that we allow ourselves to be subjected to is overwhelming. Here is a simple experiment in visual attention:

  1. Sit in a chair in a lit room and pick a point to look at opposite to where you are sitting.
  2. While looking at the point and not moving your eyes from that point pay attention to what is in your peripheral visual field, noting what is there.
  3. If you’ve moved your eyes from focusing on the point you have failed the exercise and start again.
  4. After a minute to five minutes stop. Close your eyes and recall what was in your periphery field. Now look at the area surrounding the point. Did you catch all the items that you noticed in the field?

This is an example of utilizing receptive sensory awareness and expanding attention to push the limits of reality. It’s a very mild push and it’s a beginning.

The use of trance, selective listening and the neutral point can be another tool in extending attention and awareness to places beyond ordinary reality.

The person begins speaking as I am prompted to drop-down into trance. I pop back and forth between worlds. Listening is half-listening and at times full listening. The trance state allows for a deeper level of receptive listening that gleans information and provides texture for the story that the client is weaving.

 After years of cultivating the neutral place within switching back and forth between worlds is easier and is one step closer to breaking free of the slavery which keeps me in an enslaved place. However I run on automatic just as many others do so I am still a slave to my habits and beliefs.

 

Acknowledging Perceptual Filters

The following five categories except number 1 may not represent all the perceptual facilities / filters that we as humans work with.

The obvious perceptions:

  1. Sight
  2. Sound,
  3. Touch,
  4. Taste
  5. Odor
  6. Balance
  7. Movement / Direction

The ignored perceptual facilities:

  1. Associative thought
  2. Perceiving emotion
  3. Memory (personal, familial, societal and their histories)
  4. Familial meta-rules
  5. Societal meta-rules

 

III. Unconscious biological perceptual facilities:

  1. Genetic interaction with the world based on familial and personal patterns
  2. Somatic knowing

 

IV. Underdeveloped perceptual facilities:

  1. Empathic perception
  2. Telepathic perception
  3. Transcending Linear Time

 

V. Transcendent perceptual facilities:

  1. Inter and trans dimensional perception
  2. Perception of invisible worlds
  3. Conscious bi-location
  4. Recognizing and transcending layers of illusion

 

All of these perceptual filters except number 5 are agreements that shape the projection we call reality. I believe that part of our mission as humans on planet earth is breaking through the illusions of the projection while transmuting suffering into energy or light / consciousness so that we make work to evolve into a higher consciousness state. Usually those that have completed this process are free to release the corporeal human state and live in the next stage of consciousness. Some do return to the projected human reality as Bodhisattvas to assist others in recognizing the illusion that we all create and help them with its release.

Money always leads to Injustice

Money Always leads to Injustice, Control and Power Over those that Have Less

The World with Money

Money has gone far beyond legal tender for an exchange in goods and services. Money has become a business unto itself. The drive to make more money and wield more power is an addiction worse than heroin.

Money makes interest in banks and loans

Money makes more interest in all manners of stock

There will always be people with less as long as there is money. Those that have more money will seek out more control and subjugate those that have less money and make those people bad, wrong, ignorant and stupid. while keeping those judgements secret. The power-possessors with huge amounts of money and greedy for more will make sure that those that make significantly less will be the slaves of the power-possessors and will by design be kept ignorant of what the power-possessors are doing with them.

Those that have less money will driven to make more of it but that money will never be enough to live on. Consumeristic – capitalism requires that those who make less money spend it to further the economy thus keeping them in a cycle of perpetual and functional poverty. Consumeristic-Capitalism is based on planned obsolescence, shoddy second and third rate products and services that can be parsed into smaller packages and sold for increasingly more money. Those manufacturing products are using less than satisfactory materials often under “sweat-shop” pressures to make more. They are not paid well. Only top management makes a livable wage. The company and shareholders profit the most.

In the era before the 1980s Capitalism may have been paired with Materialism where skill, craft, durable goods and valued services were offered and sold. The economy at that time was based on the growth of the income lower and middle-classes which in-turn fueled a healthy capitalistic economy.

Automation is making many kinds of work obsolete.

 

The World without Money

Imagine if it were all free no money?

 

No banks, no interest, no stock market. All labor, services and products would have equal value. Though no monetary value would be placed on products and services a value based on skill pride and a sense of community could evolve.

 

I can’t imagine it, but I would like to work on it.

 

My Father’s Gift Validated

my Dad

Dad-good

When I was a kid I was left to do what I wanted.

We lived just outside of suburbia, about a half a mile away. Across the street was a farm, surrounded by apple orchards. Next door to the right of us or west was a Truck Farm, about 300 acres of woods behind us and one house with a barn to the left / east of us on 3 acres of land. Across Route 70 was Reservoir Road, more apple orchards – mostly Macintosh and Delicious and the Reservoir. I didn’t care for Delicious Apples, I did and do love Macintosh Apples.

300 acres of woods behind us

So there was a lot of space to ‘splore.

After school I couldn’t wait to get outside, the winter slowed that down some. It was cold, icy, snowy and wet. But there was sledding.

push Frankie into Little League

I had schoolwork and chores that I didn’t want to do, projects of shipping raked leaves to piles in the woods. My Father raked. My sister and I put the leaves in the wheelbarrow and I dumped them mostly in the woods.

My Mother dreamed of me becoming a doctor or a lawyer, but there was nothing behind it. I heard my mom arguing with my dad – more of a discussion:

“I think we should push Frankie into Little League,” my mom said (I cringed)

“Does he like playing baseball?”

“No.”

“Let him be,” Then I heard my dad say to my mom:

“Let him do what interests him. He’ll find his way.”

pick wild strawberries

I explored the woods, the reservoir, the apple orchards. The Big Rocks – multi-ton boulders that had been dropped by the receding ice from the last ice age, up at the corner by the school bus stop, in our backyard and deep in the woods. We knew just where to go in the spring time to pick wild strawberries and sometimes we would get the few that were there before the birds wiped them clean.

I had fun and expressed a raucous creativity within me

In my teen years I used the woods and nature as a balm against the depression and suicidal thoughts I was having. I made it through.

My father was a well-intentioned bonehead

Juxtaposed to the depression was an interest fostered by my mother and father somewhat – making short experimental films – at a time when my classmates were scathing with their comments of us. I had fun and expressed a raucous creativity within me.

My father was a well-intentioned bonehead with a temper and fists to match. The gift he gave me was supporting my interests rather than pressuring me into this or that.

This was his gift to me.

The validation of his gift comes in the form of a piece by Scientific American on a book: “The Case for The Self-Driven Child”

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-case-for-the-ldquo-self-driven-child-rdquo/

 

A Failed Winter (and Summer) Olympic Sport from the 1950s

Many don’t know that this failed sport went on to become a lifesaving technique.

That’s right. I bet you didn’t know that the Heimlich maneuver was a failed Olympic Sport.

 

Okay the winter version was better for vegans and vegetarians.

 

Skates on.

Swallow a chunk of pork sausage while skating fast down a long runway CHOKING and carrying a chair.

 

Throw yourself on the chair back just below your rib cage at the end of the runway

EJECTING the chunk of sausage over burning hot coals.

 

Whose ever sausage chunk goes the farthest before bursting into flames gets the Gold.

 

Many participants wear helmets and fire retardant suits in case they fall into the hot coals.

And many wear Hiemy Straps to help prevent accidental rib brakes.

 

Voted as TOO DISGUSTING for the Olympics. Also many broke their ribs with the Hiemy Strap and one person did choke to death because the performed the move incorrectly. A summer version was also tried with the same results.

Wrap eh-Up-Tray-Tore

He’s a Con, he’s a con, he’s a con hack,

A con who would be a clown that was cloned from a con cave man in the snow,

Or is dat convex?

Spelling wrong oh no –

Convict.

Bars are a-coming oh my, oh my, oh my

Tar and feather Rumpee-boi

For 10,000 years in the electrical chair,

Oh my, Oh my, Oh Mai Lie

Dye Orange Jumpy Suit not just Hair.

Road Signs

DipAhead

 

In the town I live in they have road signs like Dip Ahead. I think snack time, bring your own chips.

 

 

SurveypartyOr out on the Highway “Survey Party” – but there’s never enough parking to get the survey. Is it answering questions first or snacking and then asking questions I never know.

 

StopAheadBut as a kid seeing signs like “Stop Ahead” I expect a severed head to be rolling around and some guy using his foot to stop it.

 

RoadNarrowsOr Road Narrows, but you never see Road Widens. Or Narrow Bridge Ahead -I just picture some mean ass bridge squeezing a head. Narrow bridge or Narrow road must have been authorized by conservative Republicans, reflects their singular focus and you need that to shoot somebody or fire a missile right. I mean a narrow place is wide to the narrow minded. Or what about Road Work stop Ahead and there’s nobody there or they’re eating lunch, Head cheese, you lucked out. Or one lane road, stop ahead. They have to wait for the rolling head to stop before cars can pass and you thought it had to do with road work.

 

“Slow Children Ahead” we’ve all suffered through this stupid joke without getting the real meaning behind it. One of the “children” is carrying a zombie head forcing the other children under their spell to go slow as zombies. This is one reason why you should drive fast if a child has the head.

 

 

DipAheadDip a Head – It gives “Dip A Head” whole new meaning: meaning Dip your head = why not go soak your head, soaking is different that dipping right? Soaking is full immersion. Dipping is a quick shot – you’re in you’re out. But if the dip is French onion dip you’d want to dip your head down to the lips – I guess that’s why you’d have chips – and dip and that’s using your head, cool.

The Logical Extension of The Pro-Life Movement

images

The Pro-Life Belief is that once conception occurs that the child as fetus is life cannot be terminated without committing an act of murder.

Women’s rights to control over their bodies do not apply in this case because the unborn child is still a child.

Under the sanctity and sacredness of life being so valued Pro-Life supporters need to be:

  • Opposed to Euthanasia
  • Opposed to Suicide
  • Opposed to the Death Penalty and Executions
  • Opposed to War
  • Opposed to Police use of deadly force
  • Opposed to Gun violence, manslaughter and murder
  • Opposed to Pollution
  • Opposed to Oil and Coal
  • Opposed to Prejudice and Bigotry
  • In-Favor of Tolerance and Compassion
  • In-Favor of Gun Control
  • In-Favor of the Vegan Lifestyle
  • In-Favor of Environmental Protections
  • In-Favor of Alternative Energy Production

 

Pro-Life needs to be equated in all that give life and opposed to all that takes life.

Opposition to euthanasia or ending a persons’ suffering through life termination is against life. Suicide and murder are anti-life. War, police use of deadly force, executions, and manslaughter, gun violence resulting in death is not Pro-Life. Pollution and Climate Change cause all manner of events that threaten and shorten life.

Vigorous support of environmental protection is a Pro-Life lifestyle choice – of life as sacred. Eating hard-boiled chicken eggs is anti-life, as well as eating meat. Veganism is the logical course of action for the Pro-Life Believer. Cannibalism of mammals is against life. Support of Gun Control can help limit gun violence and death. Using tolerance and compassion to include others is one way to support all life. Favoring Alternative Energy – as a renewable energy source is a way of promoting life in its larger context.

 

If Pro-Life as a movement is followed to its logic conclusions then unwanted babies could be adopted by families in need of children.

Finger-Pointing Or…

wethepeople

The Pope and the Dali Lama Issue Mittens and Socks to Members of US Congress

 

The Pope and the Dali Lama have interceded with mittens and socks in the US Congress as a way to reduce finger pointing. A variety of finger pointing was used in a partisan manner Saturday at midnight when the government was shutdown.

Diagram 1 shows bad fingers in the pointing and casting of blame. Ooo naughty.

BadFinger

Picture 1 – Borrowed from “Uncle Sam Wants you for the US Army” poster though not necessarily bad is accusatory in the Bag Finger pointing matches.

Picture 2 – Index point finger of blame (not “fickle-finger-of-fate” award) is saying Position D: “You are to blame.” Position R: “No, you are to blame.” Bickering (petulant quarreling) or in the words of Monte Python “Nay saying.”

Rather silly.

Picture 3 – Multiple pointy fingers — a din of bickering nay-saying ninnies. Dems and Repubs pointing en-masse.

And

Picture 4 – The Ultimate Bad Finger – Partisan Stand-Off

 

Diagram 2 Fingers and hands of Peace – no explanation

HandsofPeace

 

 

When the Pope and the Dali Lama first introduced mittens and “sock puppet” play puppets attacked and bit each other.

 

Who do you think benefited from the shut down?

The American People?

No.

 

The Democrats?

No.

 

The Republicans?

No

 

It was the Koch Brothers and Vladimir Putin.

 

Oh and mitten and sock manufactures too.

Home Remedies: Cold & Flu

screen800x500

These are remedies that I’ve discovered or were passed on to me. Some of them you may already use or know about. (these are not meant as prescriptions and may or may not help you. You are encouraged to seek medical and/or healing advice from a professional)

Colds and flu going from mild to severe.

(Some of these remedies were passed on and some I uncovered myself. I welcome any more remedies you’d like to share. I would ask you not to share the remedies – through the comments that are commonly known – such as over-the-counter medicines etc.)

Chicken Soup:
I’m reminded of Mom’s chicken soup, not just my Mom but all Moms whether they’ve had children or not, whether they are female or male. There’s something nurturing and healing about chicken soup. So to prep for that nurturing time when you are well or ill try this: https://psychesweather.wordpress.com/2017/11/19/home-remedies-chicken-stock-and-soup/

Salt Water Gargle:
At the first sign of a scratchy or sore throat gargle with warm salt water. I often say – oh I’ll do it later, to myself. When I force myself to do make the solution and gargle with it the sore or scratchy throat symptoms vanish.

Having some chicken soup (see link above – or you may have your own recipe). This is good for colds and flu as well as a source of good nurturing and health.

A tonic for sore throats, head colds and flu-like symptoms:
Add to mug –
½ Lemon (organic) – squeezed
1 teaspoon or tablespoon of organic local honey (if possible)
Chopped or sliced organic ginger root
Boil water and pour over – drink like tea

Peppermint Oil Steam:
A pot of water on your stove-top
A towel
Essential Peppermint Oil

Boil Water to a rolling boil and turn heat off. [CAUTION – When using Peppermint Oil do NOT get near or in eyes, even the steam is powerful – close eyes while steaming]

Put one to three drops of peppermint oil in boiling water. PUT TOWEL OVER YOUR HEAD AND CLOSE YOUR EYES AS YOU POSITION YOURSELF OVER THE WATER.

Breathe in peppermint oil infused water. Good for the lungs and breathing freely.

Peppermint Oil Directly on Skin:
Before moving forward make a test spot on your skin. If a reaction appears such as a redness – do not continue.

If you have a chest cold either put peppermint oil on a Q-tip, a finger or directly on your chest and spread around. [CAUTION – When using Peppermint Oil do NOT get near or in eyes] If you have it on your finger, wash your hands immediately.

Your skin will feel like it’s being burned off, but don’t be alarmed your skin is detoxing as well as chest cold and /or sinuses.

This treatment can be repeated for your sinuses just keep away from your eyes and wash your hands afterwards. [CAUTION – When using Peppermint Oil KEEP AWAY FROM EYES].
 

Fever Breaker:
If have a fever. (If you fever is high over 102 to 105 – try cold showers or ER if fever does not come down) Make your bedroom warm. Put socks on your feet and a cap on your head. Put on mittens or socks over your hands. Get underneath the covers and sweat out the fever.

Nettie Pot Cleanse for Sinuses:

A Nettie Pot looks like a strange tea pot. Use a warm or tepid water solution with some salt dissolved in it.
Move the nozzle of the Nettie pot to your left nostril as you lower and tilt you head to the right. The water will pour through your left nostril up into your sinuses and out your right nostril thus cleansing your nostrils and sinuses.
I actually don’t like this treatment but some swear by it.
