Consciousness Evolution

In my twenties I was enmeshed in Corporate America. Being a single parent, rearing two daughters, I worked two jobs to provide for my family. I had a condominium, a red GT Opal, and my health. The American dream taught to us by TV is to have more, bigger, better material things. I was taught a very important lesson by the janitor of the large corporation I worked for. He used to shuffle when he worked cleaning up after everyone had left there offices. He never talked to anyone. I worked late sometimes and he would talk to me. He was a very intelligent black man who kept to himself. One night I shared with him my glee of buying a bigger condominium. I was quite proud of myself for being able to move up in society and get a bigger, better living space with a yard, carport, pool and play areas for my children. He made a statement that I have never forgotten, “Child, only one person owns the land, you are only renting it.” This light bearer knocked me off my pedestal in his gentle way. Mother Earth belongs to us all. She was not intended to be divided up and bought and sold to the highest bidder. The water she produced was free. The sunlight and air was free. The food was free. We as a...

The Good, The Bad & and The Ugly follow up story

12/13/14 The Good, The Bad and The Ugly Follow up I have been asked to share any progress that I have had with my experience with the bottle nosed beetle that bit me in July of 2014. One of the first things I did was obtain an Epinephrine or EpiPen 2-pak kit to use in case of another beetle bite. My doctor recommended it since it takes more than a half hour to get to the emergency room from where I live. The cost was $360.00 that includes two injections in case of an emergency. Next we hired Payne Pest Management to inspect and treat the rat problem under our house. They stated there was a lot of rat feces under the house where the bottle nosed beetles breed. They proposed to clean out all rodents, spray for all bugs and set traps to insure all are captured/poisoned. They also built a special apparatus to block access to the area under the house where a crawl space was available. $650 was spent to protect me from being bitten again. The work was completed on August 4, 2014. I was originally bitten on July 25, 2014. On July 30, 2014 I found a beetle in the bathroom sink before I went to bed. I freaked. My daughter had given me mosquito netting to hang over the bed in case I...

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY THE GOOD: I have had my share of Emergency room experiences. I wanted to share my experience at Grossmont Sharp Hospital involving a bottle nosed beetle or a (kissing bug). They can cause a severe allergic reaction that immobilizes the body and puts you to sleep. The pain and swelling can cause heart disease, palpitations, parasitic death, and gastronial reflux disease. In 2011 my first experience of being bitten by the beetle was when I was sitting on my couch and something bit my hand. I saw it, caught it and put the beetle in a jar. The pain and itching was unbearable and my hand started to swell. I could feel the venom crawling up my blood vessels in my arm. I couldn’t stay still because it itched to badly. I knew I should not scratch the area but I shook my hand and arm wildly to alleviate the pain. I applied itch cream which did not work. My husband drove me to the emergency ward at Grossmont Sharp Hospital. We arrived 35 minutes later. I was incoherent and unable to walk. I was put in a wheel chair and wheeled into the emergency room. I was unable to hold my head up and unable to articulate what happened. My husband had to answer the questions. The nurse asked “Was I...

Fire Walk

Walking on coals is not my cup of tea but I went to an event that had a sweat lodge ceremony and later the coals were heated for the fire walk. My experience started when I arrived. The wood to be used for the sweat lodge was covered in poison oak and the fire had not started. I am not allergic to poison oak so I was able to get wood for the sweat lodge. Kachinas Kutenai an Apache medicine woman led the sweat lodge ceremony. She had her dog with her whose name I have forgotten but it was a big blond dog that was very muscular. I was afraid of dogs at the time but not this dog. He was like a person and stood guard over the activities. During the event I met a young man in his early 30s who had horrible teeth and he was not healthy looking. We shared our interests and when it was time for the fire walk he did it twice, successfully. I was impressed. I chickened out and watched others walk on the coals and not get burned. Before I left for the evening I advised him to see a dentist and have all the mercury removed from his mouth and he would feel better. The drumming and music was heated and frenzied and wore everyone out who danced...
