A Call for Self-Action

Feb 23, 2021 | Healthy Living, Holistic Healing, Mental Health, Words of Wisdom

It was sixty years ago this past month, on January 20, 1961, that the incoming president of our country, John F. Kennedy, would pose the statement “Ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country”. As I reflect on this in 2021, I redirect this concept to the human body and particularly the mind that has taken us to our current state of being. Think for moment about what we have done to ourselves – that is essentially impacting this planet- and it may become apparent that we as human beings need to do a lot better. Let me say a bit on what I mean by all this.

The human mind is a robust portal for the free flow of thought influenced by universal energies that are naturally balanced, nurturant and cooperative. At some point in the evolutionary process, this harmony was disturbed, however. You see, the same passageway for these loving aspects had become contaminated with arrogance, greed, hatred, insolence, laziness, disregard, insincerity and more.

While many have researched the history of our transformation over millions of years, there is no one consensus on when or how the human mind became infiltrated with and capable of all that is unbalanced. Some thinkers see the contaminated mind as a result of human consumption of the flesh of their own kind, of large beast or exotic fowl, simple sugars including alcohol or the combination of all.

The action you take now will help you for the rest of your life.

Toxic heavy metals and other powerful chemicals from the earth, atmosphere or waters have also been implicated. Humans have touched, eaten, inhaled and thus absorbed all of these elements including tobacco and other smoking materials. Modern day chemicals in food and non-foods are not health promoting. In addition, electromagnetic exposure from wireless devices, towers, cars and a multitude of machines, are not health promoting to our minds or environment. All of this is happening at rates that the mind cannot handle. As such, this writer supports all of the above is highly contributory to the divisiveness of this entity we denote as mind.

So, what do we do now? It is time to act. Clean your mind and body of the toxic materials that enter it daily. The action you take now will help you for the rest of your life.


    • Consume organic or non-chemically treated whole food, plant-based food program.
    • Reduce meat consumption, especially if you live in a warm/hot environment and are not very active; use care in your seafood choices.
    • Use personal care products made from simple and clean ingredients not in plastic or coated containers; toothpaste can be homemade and should not contain artificial sweeteners!
    • Do not eat simple sugars carelessly! Limit them and avoid as much as possible. This includes alcohol.
    • Avoid body colognes and perfumes made from harsh ingredients.
    • Use cookware that is not coated or with breakdown of the metals.
    • Use dish soap that is made from plants.
    • Spend time in the sun daily for 20-30 minutes without sunblock for vitamin D that is vital to your mind and body integrity.
    • Exercise every day with at least 10 minutes in moderate-high intensity activity, e.g. jumping, fast walking, aerobics class, swimming with gusto.
    • Sleep well at night and take naps if you can in daytime. 6-8 hours of sleep each night is recommended. 20–30-minute power naps during the day, when possible.
    • Meditate daily with breath as a super brain enhancer.
    • Request your dentist to use non-metal, non-toxic materials such as resin. If possible, remove any existing metal amalgams from teeth and replace with non-toxic materials.
    • Wear cotton, silk, or any other natural fibers on your skin.
    • Use simple adornments made from non-toxic metal, wood, or other natural materials.
    • Avoid holding a cell/mobile phone on your person (take out of pocket or bra) and keep in airplane/flight mode or completely off if not in use; use in speaker mode whenever possible.
    • Caution on all wearable phones on wrists or other areas due to radiation.
    •  Keep laptops away from your lap!
    • Pregnant or those interested in becoming should avoid cell phone use as much as possible.
    • Turn off wi-fi if not or when not in use.
    • Take phones away from children under 12 and those over 12 should have limited use.
    • Use wired devices. Computers with a wired mouse, and home phone landlines with wires are safest.
    • Wear blue blocking eyeglasses when on computer. Use shields/pendants if you need covering/protection for the body.
    • Avoid disruptive television, news stations, and political fodder.
    • Put nothing in your body that will hurt it, and by that I mean anything that has not been tested for years and is less than 100% safe.
    • Connect with like-minded individuals and support those who are working to preserve and protect this planet.
    • Love yourself, your family, friends, and animals. You must connect with them!

The above items cannot be stressed enough. If we awaken to the plain facts that are here and now, these motions become more relevant and need to be sustained. We are all in position to keep this planet safe.

Please take action now for the sake of your health, your loved ones, and the world we live in.
