Imagine a 2 week power outage.  Are YOU ready? (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

When disaster strikes unexpectedly, you could find yourself in any situation- in traffic, in an elevator, taking a nap in your penthouse apartment….. While you can’t be packin’ survival equipment everywhere you go, at least have your home ready for living without electric.  When your home is in a high rise apartment building, that takes a special kind of prep.

WATER BOTTLE ANYONE?

In addition to the toxic packaging…..

I worked for Poland Spring (Great Spring Waters of America / Nestle) for 5 years, which controls approximately 85% of the bottled water industry. This video is misleading and leaves out some very important facts.

1. Spring water comes from deep in the ground, cannot hit air during the extraction process, otherwise it must be called artisian water.

2. That Everest water was distilled – it’s from a municipal water source, because it makes no sense to boil steam and remove pure water from spring water. If people want spring water, they shouldn’t be buying distilled – it is the consumers’ responsibility to read the label. Buying Arrowhead water doesn’t mean it has arrowheads in it or Sparkletts, a company in the southwest, doesn’t contain sparkles.

3. Tap Water – Hundreds of examples where tap water is being contaminated, and the town does little more than send a letter to your house- after the fact -telling you that your water may be unsafe to drink. Happened to me in NJ!

4. Tap water contains fluoride – a known neurotoxin. Fluoride is a poison that is being added to municipal water supplies without our consent – no mention of this in the video.

5. The weak link in the bottling process are the containers themselves. The milky white plastic container is bad – it is a petroleum based product that leaches toxins into the water, especially when exposed to heat or sunlight. Leave a bottle in the sun for a week and taste the water – you’ll see what I mean.

6.  5 Gallon bottles, made of Lexan.  Supposedly the plastic is bad for you – I’ve never been able to taste any chemicals even after the water has been sitting for months.  It doesn’t mean that they’re not present,  I just think if there is any, it’s probably a small amount.

7.  The small hard plastic “pet” bottles are made of a harder plastic and less likely to leach, they’re the safest of all. Of course, glass is the best,  but good luck finding any water sold in glass bottles

Going back to the 5 gallon bottle – those bottles are re-used. You don’t know what’s been put in them from the last person that’s had them, and the cleaning process is really not that good. I have lots of stories on that issue alone.

In general – if you want pure water – filter it yourself.  Get a good water filter and use a trusted source. I prefer a well because many filters will not remove fluoride and none will remove nano-fluoride – the new direction the industry is going.

The bottled water industry is somewhat  self –regulated;  although they still can face fines and legal action if food safety guidelines are not followed.

Funny video but it’s very misleading and those idiots in the restaurant – a saying comes to mind – a fool and his money are soon parted.   Hope this helps.

The Attitude of Survival- Prep Yourself!

“The Attitude of Survival”

Lynn Falcones

With the onslaught of today’s societal concerns, on the top of this list is survival. After all, if you don’t survive, all birds kingfisher2else is moot. There are so many ways to attack the issue of survival.  There is the need for water, food and shelter.  There is the need for security.  At the pinnacle of this pile of issues resides awareness.

Awareness has many levels. Is there someone following you? That feeling you get when you feel pursued?  That’s awareness. Being aware of your surroundings would be a top priority. Being aware of little dangers around the home….being aware of accidents waiting to happen….being aware of governmental actions which may become problematic- being aware of how to avoid disasters within disasters… Along with awareness comes a certain height of preparedness.  I sleep with a night stick these days. An intruder better be aware that I’m gonna slam the crap out of them in one swift and powerful swing.  If he’s not prepared…well, he will be NEXT time…if his brain still functions.

The point is not violence, or unreasonable hoarding.  The point is- knowledge is power.  Study up!  There’s much to know about surviving the onslaught of impending disasters.

As I see it, the power lies in the attitude of each person. If you have a defeatist outlook, you are sure to fail.  It is easy to fall into this trap just thinking about future inconveniences….imagine when you are living it. The depression arising from moving to third world status needs to be replaced with exhiliration for just living, the privilege to be alive on this planet….living with the souls you have connected with on your journey. Loved ones.

Self regulation. Theres gonna be many opportunities to self regulate. First and foremost will be not wasting commodoties. Got water? Better treat it like liquid gold.  Got food? Better make it last.  There will be no room for gluttony in a disaster situation. There will be no room for oppositional stances. You may not want to be the firekeeper, but don’t fight it….embrace the tasks at hand as though God was watching…every time. Always be mindful that times are tough, and we are all in the same boat…especially when it comes to sufferage.

Create that vortex of survivability.  Shine your light through the darkness which accompanies disaster.  The fallout goes on …forever…and it is our responsibility to bring others into this vortex.

Hence, Prep Consultants. We’ re here to pull you into our survival vortex.  You don’t have to be doomsday, to be in the vortex!  Be opposite.  Take on the attitude of gratitude. Recognize the beauty of the natural world…the cyclic existence your life will change into…being dependant and aware of the  nuts and bolts of real survival.  Find that peace that passes all understanding.  Pass that peace to others by your actions.

People will be at their worst in the aftermath of disaster.  After the honeymoon- taking in the destruction, processing the meaning of it all…there will be the temptation to freak out.  Maybe many people will feel the urge to simply end it all… After all, with no Iphone running their lives, no wifi or gps to determine your whereabouts…many people will be so lost, so unaware, so hopeless, so lacking in the life force- they may become suicidal.

The days will be long, the nights even longer.  The light will be determined by the rise and fall of the sun, the food and water you have will be dependant on how prepared you are.  Preparedness- not just the items you managed to store during “the good times”, but your awareness and attitude…the way you treat others, will ultimately determine your survivability.  There is a need for a paradigm shift.  In the survival mode, no man is an island.  Everything must be shared.  People will have to boost each other up.  Each one teach one.  Faith will be tried, even hopes will be changed.  No longer will your child long for that tablet.  Fresh, clean water will trump electronics.  Days will be filled with surviving.  I find that exhilarating, not defeatest. It will be refreshing to live a real life- in the aftermath of disaster.  Were YOU aware of this paradigm? Welcome to the vortex of exhilarating survival.

SURVIVAL GARDENS

Perhaps all you are interested in is a survival garden.  Let Prep Consultants come up with the custom plans for a raised bed garden for your backyard.  We can even help you with a patio garden for apartment dwellers.  We will provide a list of plantings and planting schedules for the plants you have chosen.

Having a survival garden will prove to be invaluable, regardless of the disaster situation.  Imagine, fresh produce daily, straight from your own backyard.  It is a multifaceted type of “relief” when you see yourself able to function “off grid”, especially while living in the middle of gridville.

Prep Consultants will do a home assessment, determining the best placement of your garden, evaluate your garden goals, and decide how to make this work, regardless of your ability to pump water.  In a crisis situation, no electricity will put the brakes on any gardening activity without the ability to pump water.

Fruit trees are great to have!  For a little maintenance, you could be overflowing with in season ripe fruits- when others are unable to buy produce from the store…..you and your family and friends will have what they need to survive.  Let us not forget canning your extra- for food provisions are needed in the off season as well.

There’s nothing better than to go out to your own back yard and collect what you need to prepare that great meal.  In these uncertain times, knowing you are growing food- is priceless.
