Interesting Information: 7.83 Hz, and Sleep in the Quiet Dark

7.83 Hz, and

Sleep in the Quiet Dark

I used to fuss at my younger son and his wife all the time about the sleep monitors they have in their babies rooms.  The older child, especially, is a very light sleeper.  To give her comfort, they also keep a night light on.

But I’ve given up.  And they do have to live their lives in their own way.

Nevertheless, like many of my generation who grew up without much technology, I’m worried about the overload of radiation in our world today–from cell phones, baby monitors, microwaves, wireless transmitters of all sorts (computers, Smart Meters, radios, etc.), the machines at the airports.  It’s a growing list.

I myself cannot sleep with lights on around me.  The fire alert contraption on the ceiling near my bedroom door–meant to show me where the door is in the case of fire–seems at night like a strobe light.  I covered it with several coverings of masking tape.  But I can still see it once my eyes get accustomed to the dark, and one of these days, I’m getting on a ladder and putting MORE tape over it.  The light from the clock or from the plug strip in my room or from the phone–I block or cover them up.  Then I get, blissfully, dark.  Then I have only the monthly full moon and the countless bright winter stars to thwart my sleep.

Am I nuts?

You can watch Resonance:  Beings of Frequency for free at https://vimeo.com/54189727 (James Russell and John K. Webster Directors, Patient Zero Productions).

And below you’ll find the review of this DVD from Tim Boyd in the Spring 2013 issue of Wise Traditions, the journal of The Weston A. Price Foundation.

Seems that 7.83 Hz is the resonant frequency of the earth–and as such is the frequency at which the alpha waves of our brains resonate.  If that frequency gets interfered with, ill health follows.  Reviewer Tim Boyd notes that if you put a cordless phone in a bee hive, the bees leave.

Be sure to read the paragraph on dark and wireless devices and melatonin production.

Webster Patient Zero Productions Available for free viewing at http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/resonance-beings-frequency/When you have a sphere within a sphere and an electromagnetic field, that arrangement creates a frequency. For at least a few centuries most of us have known that Earth is a sphere and it is surrounded by a larger sphere we call the ionosphere. Using that information, Winfried Otto Schumann calculated the resonant frequency of the earth as 7.83 Hz. I know what you’re thinking. Why would anyone care? It turns out that alpha waves generated by the human brain resonate at about that same frequency. It also turns out that when researchers constructed an underground bunker completely shielded from those waves and put test subjects in that bunker, they discovered that was bad for human health.

Other experiments with DNA in water showed that DNA strands communicate with each other at about the same frequency. Life in general seems to be tuned to 7.83 Hz. In our current era we are now adding an unprecedented amount of other electronic frequencies and noise to the environment. Between radio transmissions, cell phones and other wireless transmissions, it is becoming almost impossible to detect the Schumann resonance around big cities.

There is reason to believe this is having adverse effects on human and animal life. When cordless phones are put in a beehive, the bees don’t return. When natural electromagnetic fields are disrupted by things like cell phones or cell towers, birds and bees are no longer able to navigate. There may be other factors involved but this appears to be a significant factor in the decline of many species of birds and insects. In human populations, cancer clusters have been noted around cell phone towers.

Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant that regulates the immune system. It is produced by the pineal gland when it is dark. That is why you need to sleep in complete darkness to get the benefits of any melatonin. There is now evidence that melatonin production is disrupted by other forms of radiation besides visible light, particularly from wireless devices.

There have been a number of studies showing problems with cell phone radiation. There have also been many studies claiming that there is no problem. When you look at who carried out (or paid for) the studies showing no problem, it is obvious that the sponsor of the study had a vested interest in finding nothing. This video also points out that there is no effective government oversight or regulation of all the new phone technology. It is almost amusing when people are shocked by this fact. Large corporations control the governments of the western world. How much genuine regulation do you expect? All of this is more bad news for cell phone lovers. This one gets a thumbs UP.

Interesting Information: Vitamin B12 Deficiency

Vitamin B12 Deficiency

 

My father’s body stopped being able to use the B12 vitamin in his later years–which is a malabsorption issue.

He got B12 shots, but he slipped into dementia (not Alzheimers) anyway a few years later.

The Spring 2013 issue of The Weston A. Price Foundation’s journal Wise Traditions, Nutrition and Behavior, discusses at length the connections between human violence and other behavioral issues and the lack of nutrients–vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and so forth.

Sylvia Onusic, PhD. CNS, LDN, in “Violent Behavior:  A Solution in Plain Sight” (Wise Traditions, Spring 2013) discusses the lack of B12.

Here’s the link:  http://www.westonaprice.org/environmental-toxins/violent-behavior-a-solution-in-plain-sight

Here’s what Onusic said about the lack of B12:

Vitamin B12 deficiency has a well-known correlation with mental disorders, including irrational anger.  A higher incidence of low B12 is found in mental patients than in the general population.  Deficiencies cause mental symptoms ranging from poor concentration, depression and severe agitation to hallucinations [citation here].  Deficiencies are caused by pernicious anemia, an autoimmune condition; they are also found in vegetarians and vegans, those with low animal protein intake, and individuals with leaky gut.  Drugs including anesthetics can deplete B12 [citation here].

My dad, as I said above, had some sort of malabsorption going on.  He was thin as a rail though my mother, a great cook, fed him very well.  He took a boat load of drugs for allergies and asthma.  (We know now that most food allergies and asthma can be associated with foods and an impaired immune system–not to mention all the chemicals washing over our world these days.  My dad lived across the road from an agricultural field that held skull-and-crossbones signs at its four corners.)  He probably had leaky gut…

Anyway, this article is interesting…

And gives us a lot of information to contemplate.

 

 

Interesting Information: Stell Shevis’s Enameled Music Boxes

Stell Shevis’s

Enameled Music Boxes

 

When I graduated from high school, my grandmother gave me a china box that I treasure to this day–though it is worn and tired and old now.  

It lives on my dresser and holds some pearls John gave me long ago.

I wanted to give my grandchildren some small treasures that they would have always.  Each has their name spelled out in brightly colored wooden letters–led by a train and followed by a caboose.

And to each–up to the birth of the youngest last April–I gave an enameled music box made by Stell Shevis–who is far more than a local artist here in Maine.  Stell and her husband have national reputations, and we are only just lucky that they decided to live in Maine.  (Shevis died a few years ago.)

I discovered Stell’s music boxes when we first moved to Maine ten years ago now.

But, Stell, who is in 2013, 97 years young (and she is young in mind and heart and sharp as a tack), stopped making the boxes some time ago.

When Ailey was born, I called Stell and asked if she had any left in her studio.  She did, and I chose one for Ailey.

Last week, I worked up my hope and called Stell again.  Perhaps she had a few left, I asked when she answered the phone.

I went right over, and there were four boxes left.

I bought two.  One for Cyanna.  One, just in case…

And Stell and I had a wonderful visit to boot.

Here are the boxes:

The white is silver, and the yellow, gold.

One plays “White Christmas” and one plays “Wind Beneath Your Sails.”

Hmmmmm…..
