Medical Clay for Detox

"The clay is an intelligent and beneficial living substance  that acts with judgement by stopping the germs and pathogenic bacteria proliferation, while it promotes the reconstitution of our healthy cellular.

The clay works with judgement and goes where  the pain is. Whether you use it internally or externally, its absorbent power is extraordinary. You can try its effects by mixing any stinking think with clay powder and it will take the smell away.

The clay can be red, yellow, green, grey or white. They all have the same properties. The more it has been exposed to the sun,  the rain, the air, the more active is becomes."  R. Dextreit

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION
Clays are not true minerals, but their medicinal virtues are highly acknowledged. They are soft and fat sedimentary stones.
The name “clay” does not refer to any chemical or physical definition. Clay stones are fine mixtures of minerals and their colours vary depending on their composition.

Clays are sold in diet and nature shops, and numerous books explain how to use them. 

Hardness1 – 1.5 Colour Green, white, red, yellowish, greyish.

Composition Minerals found in green clay: Silica, Feldspar, Aluminium, Calcium, Iron, Potassium,
Magnesium, Sodium, Manganese, Phosphorous, Copper, Cobalt, Lithium and Molybdenum.
Clay as a therapeutic agent According to
Raymond Dextreit, winner of 1989 Peace Award for Natural Medicines: Nothing in clay is supposed to explain its wonderful properties. But facts and medical results obtained with clay show the following properties:
INTERNAL USE
Specificities: These last years, the usage of clay as a natural medicine has been so developed in France that many of its properties have emerged. The consumption of clay has been accepted by public opinion. Clay has a bactericide effect and may clean up polluted waters. Its incredible absorption ability is even used by the Army to transform stagnant waters into drinkable sources.
Clay is a real sponge for toxins. In the body, clay absorbs, neutralizes and eliminates all kinds of
impurities trapped inside the different tissues and the body fluids (blood, bile, lymph…).
Clay is also a very efficient counter-poison as it helps lowering the toxicity of poisonous substances. It has a preventing, but also curing action in the case of infectious diseases like colibacillosis  or  furunculosis.
Does it mean that clay acts as an antiseptic or an antibiotic, killing bacteria and viruses? No one knows for sure. Alike all natural remedies, clay has no specific target, but seems to act as a whole by reinforcing the immune system and globally preventing bacterial proliferation.
Clay sometimes slows a little bit the bowel flow, often transitorily, and needs to be completed with a laxative herbal tea.

The revitalizing effects of clay are often spectacular. It is somehow this vital reloading of the body that allows a reinforce Improvement of its defences and protections. Clay seems to act as a buffer for radioactive materials, hence its role as an anti-cancer and anti-degenerative agent.
Clay also helps the bowel absorption of food and nutrients and maintains the right balance within
intestinal flora.

Preparative mode: Put a teaspoon of super thin clay powder into half a glass of water (100 ml). Use a wooden spoon (you should never touch clay with a metallic object). Stir and leave it until full
sedimentation of the clay.

Use: Drink the beverage preferentially first time in the morning or just before sleep at night. If after several days of treatment you do not notice any constipation, you might stir the beverage before drinking it in order to absorb a bit of the mud also. With use, it is possible to drink the beverage five times during daytime, but one must first check that no constipation occurs before increasing the amount of clay absorbed otherwise one should get into big trouble.

The only precaution with clay is to check that you have not absorbed any paraffin oil during the two previous weeks, as this might harden the clay inside your bowels to a cement-like material.

Nevertheless, during internal treatment with clay, it is advised to avoid fatty foods and oils.
One should never drink clay in the following cases : Intestinal occlusion, Hernia.
Absorption of paraffin oil at any moment in the previous fortnight. Fatty food diet.

At the beginning of treatment (only clear water as a supernatant), constipation is not uncommon, but soon disappears.
A clay treatment is advised at the moment of any season change in order to eliminate the toxins. One teaspoon of clay in half a glass of water first time in the morning, every day during three weeks is a good way to start. Then you may stop for one week and start again for another three weeks. Prepare your beverage the night before, and leave it overnight for sedimentation.
After these two three weeks long rows, you may just alternate every two weeks, and then ten days a month to maintain a good health.

Purification - Reloading: The more clay has been exposed to sun, air and rain, the more active it is. Any clay used for a treatment should be thrown away or buried as it has been devitalised and soaked with toxins.

Clay as an internal therapeutic agent: Are all clays the same? Are they all convenient for a therapeutic use? Most studies have been performed on the green and grey varieties but white or red clays trials have shown the same kind of virtues.
White clay deposits as a protection layer upon the gastric duct and acts as a buffer and a regulator of intestinal pH by absorption of highly acid or alkaline materials. It also absorbs any gases, toxins and excessive digestive secretions or biliary acids. White clay has also a bacteriostatic effect on a wide range of pathogenic bacteria, thus regulating intestinal transit and curing diarrhoea. It has been noticed a beneficial effect on blood coagulation as well.
EXTERNAL USE
Preparative mode: You need a container, made of ceramic, enamel, wood, glass or stone… but never use a metal container. Place some crushed clay inside your container, levelling the surface. Add water until it covers the clay and leave it for a while until complete soaking.
Then, you may stir the mixture with a wooden flat spoon. At this stage, the clay should look like a
greasy and sticky paste, not too thick neither too fluid. You may then place the container under the
sunlight, covering it with gauze to prevent any impurities to fall in.
Use: Thus prepared, clay is used as a cataplasm. Using the wooden flat spoon just spread the clay on a piece of cloth that has been previously folded back many times. Your clay layer should be 5 to 20 millimetres thick, depending on the treatment.
Usually, clay is applied directly on the skin at the desired place, but cold. Anyway, for those who can’t bear it, it is still possible to heat it with a "Bain Marie" prior to application. The cataplasm may be held in place using a bandage, from one hour to overnight depending on your case. When wounds are infected, you will have to renew the cataplasm every hour. When you are curing an internal organ through skin contact, the cataplasm will have to remain in place for several hours at least.
Generally, clay is nearly dried when removed. In such a case, it is pretty easy to clean your skin out of it after treatment.
Specificities:Sometimes, you may notice a transitory worsening effect of the symptoms when you use clay. This is not a problem, and even considered as a good sign of efficiency.

Purification - Reloading: The more clay has been exposed to sun, air and rain, the more active it is. Any clay used for a treatment should be thrown away or buried as it has been devitalised and soaked with toxins.
Clay as an external therapeutic agent:
White clay is able to calm down any inflammatory state, to prevent oedemas and to clean wounds,
preventing any secondary infection.
Green clay is a very efficient antiseptic that fully respects all tissues.
Clay has been proved efficient for lowering the biological destructive consequences of nuclear radiation exposure.

Merkaba and Platonic Solids

MerKaBa
The Merkaba is an extremely powerful symbol. It is a combination of two star tetrahedrons - one pointing up to the heavens,
channelling energy down to the earth plain, and one pointing downwards, drawing up energy from the earth beneath. The top,
or upward pointing tetrahedron is male and rotates clockwise, with the bottom or downwards pointing one being female, which
rotates counter-clockwise.


Above: The Merkaba activated around a person 
What Does ‘Merkaba’ Mean?
The word Merkaba can be broken down thus: MER: rotating fields of light, KA: spirit, and BA: soul (this is taken from an 18th dynasty Egyptian translation, and in Hebrew it means 'chariot').  Therefore, Mer-Ka-Ba means the spirit or energy body surrounded by counter-rotating fields of light, or spirals of energy (as with a strand of DNA), which transport spirit or consciousness from one dimension to another.

What is a Merkaba?
The MekaBa is the Light Body vehicle, and it is the key to understanding how to move from one dimension or level to another. It is the divine light vehicle supposedly used by Ascended Masters to connect with, and reach those in tune with the higher realms. When this shape is activated around your body, you are in a place of complete protection, with the surrounding energy being generated from pure Divine Love. It is believed that with practice, using the energy and shape visualization of a Merkaba, you can activate an energy field around you which is capable of carrying your consciousness directly to higher realms.
When meditating, try sitting holding a MerKaBa and picture yourself inside this shape, with the two tetrahedrons rotating (as described above). It takes some practice, but is eased greatly by actually having a Merkaba to focus on!  When achieved you will be sitting in a place of complete protection, harmony and Universal balance.
Platonic Solids and Sacred Geometry

Above: The 5 Platonic Solids
Platonic Solids are shapes which form part of Sacred Geometry. They were first catalogued by the ancient philosopher, Plato (hence their name), although evidence of these most magical of shapes has been found around the world for in excess of 1000 years prior to Plato's documentation.

They are made up of the 'Five Convex Regular Polyhedra': hexahedron (cube), octahedron (double inverted pyramid), tetrahedron (pyramid), icosahedron and dodecahedron. The names are derived from the number of sides each shape has: 4, 6, 8, 12, and 20 respectively.

The first four shapes correspond with the elements: earth (hexahedron), air (octahedron), fire (tetrahedron) and water (icosahedron), with the fifth, dodecahedron, representing heaven or the Universe.

20

Ether (Universe or Heaven)

All of the above shapes occur naturally in nature, and indeed in the crystal world. Working with them individually is said to help with our connection to nature and the higher realms of the cosmos; to find the common pattern which links us all at a molecular as well as spiritual level.
Flower of Life

Above: The Flower of Life
The Flower of Life is a geometrical figure composed of evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern. Each circle has a six-fold symmetry like a hexagon, i.e. the middle of each circle is intersected by six other circles of the same size or diametre. The oldest example of this shape found so far is in The Temple of Osiris in Egypt. Other examples can be found in Phoenician, Assyrian, Middle Eastern, and European medieval art. The design of the Flower of Life contains the basis of Metatron's Cube, and the five forms we know as the Platonic Solids are derived from this shape.
Metatron's Cube

Above: Metatron’s Cube
The Fruit of Life is a shape taken directly from the Flower of Life (see below).  It is made of thirteen equal sized circles.  If you connect the centre of each circle to the others with a straight line, you end up with 78 lines in total. The final shape forms what we refer to as Metatron’s Cube.  Within this shape or cube, many other shapes can be found, including two dimensional versions of the five Platonic Solids.  Metatron's Cube is, therefore, the template that delineates the Platonic solids. These solids are the five structures that form the building blocks of organic life, and which can be found in crystals minerals, organic life forms, sound, music, language and so on. In early Kabbalistic scriptures, Metatron supposedly formed the cube from his soul, and Metatron is also a reference to the highest Kabbalistic angel who sits at Kether, or the God Head.  Metatron's cube is also considered a holy glyph, and was often drawn around a person to ward off evil spirits and dark entities. It is present in many of the ancient mysteries including Egyptian mythology, ancient Judaic teachings and in alchemy. It is a primordial and very powerful image.

human nature denied

I about to finish the book I am reading, and was on the look for my next one, and as has become the norm these days, the book comes to me instead.
somehow came across this site http://www.ascentofhumanity.com/description-of-the-book.php read the first pages on amazon and cant wait to read the rest

The Ascent of Humanity

by Charles Eisenstein



Description of the Book

The Ascent of Humanity is about the history and future of civilization from a unique perspective: the evolution of the human sense of self. This book describes how all the expressions of our civilization—its miraculous technology as well as the pillage of earth, culture, goodness, and beauty—arise from our identity, our way of being, "the discrete and separate self". The gathering crises of our age demonstrate that this way of being is on the verge of collapse. And this collapse is setting the stage for a revolution in human beingness whose stirrings we already begin to feel.
The Ascent of Humanity is about Separation: its origins, its evolution, its ideology, its effects, its consummation and resolution, and its cosmic purpose. What is the purpose of the grandeur and the ruin we have wrought? If civilization is to collapse, Why? and What for? Will we then go back to the Stone Age, or will we be born into something entirely new? This book draws from mythological sources, as well as natural processes of birth and transformation, to offer a narrative framework for the majesty and madness of human civilization.
More than anything, The Ascent of Humanity is about how to create the more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible. I have long found most prescriptions for "what you can do" to reverse humanity's trajectory of ruin quite empty. Recycle your bottles and turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth. Write your Congressman. What are these tiny individual actions against the juggernaut of destruction that consumes oceans, trees, soil, and culture? This book offers an entirely different approach that begins with the reconception of our very selves. It invalidates the logic of despair that so many activists have felt, that arises inescapably from the conception of ourselves as discrete and separate subjects in a world of other. This is the ideology of separation. The ideology that has created the human realm we know is the same ideology that has us despair we can ever change it. Wait, did I say "we"? I mean actually "you" and "I". "We" is often disempowering too, because it leads us to wish, "Oh if only everyone would get it, then we would have a better government, better laws, and stop being so greedy." But they don't—how could I make them?—and the despair comes back. Helplessness. Frustration. This may be the only book you have ever read that fully gets the enormity of the crises facing us, yet responds neither with despair nor with fantasy suggestions about what "we" should do about it.

Support your local Business

In an age where we are bombarded with thousands of corporate advertisements, it is easy to get lose sight of where are money is going.

It is easy to be attracted to flashy promotions in corporate ads and overlook the value independent businesses provide us, both we have to take into consideration what we gain personally and in our communities.

The disappearance of local businesses leaves a social and economic void that is palpable. We are also seeing the disappearance of products manufacture in our own countries. Economically, this can be disastrous.

History shows that countries that relied in one form of main economy or industry suffer the most when economical crises hit, or even environmental disasters or other crises like war and conflict.

This is because being reliant in one form of economy puts you at risk, be it individually or as a whole country, especially now that economy is Global and its affects can be felt worldwide. In a way, don't put all your eggs in one basket. 

More of us are shopping online, and the numbers keep rising. This has open new opportunities for online traders who get cheap products Made in China from websites like Alibaba, and re-sell for a higher price on sites like Amazon and Ebay.

Many of us also do our grocery shopping online from the usual big chains like Tesco or Asda, but many of products you find at the super market are also Made in China.

Money spent at community-based merchants is multiplied in the local economy, meaning that from each £ spent at a local independent merchant, three or more times as much typically goes back into the local economy compared to a £ spent at chain-owned businesses.

When asked to name our favourite restaurant, cafe, or shop, it’s typically a unique local business. Those businesses define our sense of place, but we often forget their survival depends on our patronage. Local owners, typically have invested much of their life savings in their businesses and take a natural interest in the community’s long-term health.

As consumer, we have the power to change the world with our wallets. We all shop online and by brands, but if each of us make a little effort to buy more products made locally, and go to your local cafe now and then instead of going to Starbucks or Costa, then we begin putting money back at our local communities and create local jobs.

So support your local businesses and keep your community thriving!
