Short Course on Resources – Getting to Square 1

In Search for the Right Snake Oil.

It was like Dana Scully quashing the werewolf legends in a dark forest that was also cold. The day I walked into a marijuana shop in Walla Walla, Washington in a pretense of going to the store was quite sunny. The forest I had walked into has flip-flops, water bottles, bracelets, and crystals. This store held the smell of fresh lavender and pines and the store reps were a man and his wife and the moment I entered, accompanied by my wife, they came to meet us. It was small talk at first but then the man was quick to talk explain more concerning what they do at the store. He made a lot of effort not to include vibrational energy or even new age in the talk. He as direct in asking whether we had been facing aches, anxiety attacks or even depression. The reply was no and it did not seem to be satisfying for them. The next thing was him telling us he was also skeptical when he started out. According to him, one day a friend gave him a water bottle which made water sweeter than usual. He decided to conduct an experiment and he became convinced that the rocks glued at the water bottle’s bottom were the reason for the change. There was inertia of the electrons because the crystals had electric energy. The man was talking to us about cocooning while wading through a lot of trinkets which were full of crushed crystals.

There was a picture that stood out of Don Ameche who appeared to be dancing, teenage style, with Maureen Stapleton. He finally showed us rubber black sheets which were full crystals. You had to lay down in order to use them and they go below and over your body. This is how you end up trapping yourself in an electric energy field. This is an experience we went through. Despite the weight of the sheets, they had a calming effect. I can’t say the same about the x-ray session is had the previous year. The mats smelled like a conifer forest and it was like the cool autumn evening when you are hugged by a friend. We were sharing thoughts on leaving the store with many sample goodies. There was no denying that while cocooning we were feeling comfortable and calm.

Of all the organs in the body, the skin is the largest. Hugging brings the skin of the other party in contact with yours and given the many receptors located on the skin they will send a message to the brain for the release of oxytocin.
