Disaster: Staying Home

Disaster: Saying Home
What if you are in your home during a community disaster? You could be home for days with no electricity or water?
How would you prepare? What would you need?
1.       Water: What would you use for water? Do you stock bottled water? Do you have another water source?
2.       Food: Frozen food would not stay frozen. How would you deal with melting food? Do you keep canned foods?
3.       Cooking: How would you cook or boil water to reduce germs? If you Grill, Do you have ample fuel for a grill?
4.       Sanitation: Are you set up to manage human waste water free and keep sanity?
There is a lot to think about in a disaster preparation.  What do you do to prepare your home?

Bad Vibrations

Dear Nurse Annie,

My son told me I was giving him bad vibrations.

This hurt my feelings. I have no idea what he is talking about.

Is there anything to this?

Is there anything I can do about this?

Please help.

Hurt Harriet.

Dear Harriet,

Many believe we have an Aura or a glow of energy around us.

It is possible this is what he is referring to.

Some believe negative feelings and situations can reduce our Auras.

There are suggestions to cleanse your body and mind.

A few suggestions include:

1.        Getting sun for a few minutes a day.

2.       Soaking in salt water.

3.       Cool showers.

4.       Sound therapy. Example: chanting “Om”.

5.       Reduce exposure to electrical fields. Avoid sleeping near electrical devices.

6.       Some like certain crystals, oils, and scents.

7.       Alertness  to places or situations that leave you feeling drained.

Harriet I hope you find this information helpful.

Our Children do challenge us. Don’t they.

Nurse Annie.
