Low Costs

Our seminar and tour fees remain as they were in 2007 and 2008.  Merri and I run our business from home and our internet only structure keeps our overheads low.   By conducting many smaller tours we keep our staff at a minimum so our fees run as low as a third of what other seminar and tour companies charge… yet again and again we are told that they are the best.. most personal and of course we have way more experience than anyone else. We are not selling real estate but are simply offering tours to help you to understand the country, the areas, the prices so you can make an informed decision.

In addition we do not accept commissions or any form of compensation from hotels where our delegates stay, or from sellers of real estate on our tours. Instead we negotiate low room rates and try to get real estate sellers to offer discounts to our our tour delegates.

Split Sessions Available North and South

Our new split session seminars help those who have asked to attend courses but who cannot make it to Ecuador right now.  These courses… both our International Business & Investing and Super Thinking + Spanish seminars will have the first session conducted in Central Florida (Mt. Dora) or the Blue Ridge in North Carolina.   Then those who choose the second optional session can travel to Ecuador for the remaining real estate or shamanic minga tours that follow immediately after the first session.

Enjoy Optional Group Travel

Split session delegates can travel to Ecuador in a group with our staff and we’ll try to negotiate special low cost fares.

Three New Real Estate Tour Destinations

We have added Quito, Mindo and Cuenca real estate tours.  We want you to experience more of the beauty and joys of Ecuador!

Quantum Wealth

We have also added (at no cost) a one day Quantum Wealth course to our International Investment & Business Courses.

This course teaches similar knowledge provided in our Super Thinking + Spanish courses.

There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven, ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of the mind, memory, recall, retention and decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness.

This is not a gimmick or a trick… just advanced education. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of Raja Yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better…thus making better and clearer decisions for wealth and health.

The book exposed this fact making it so popular that Dr. Lozanov was allowed to visit the US from Bulgaria to teach this system to just a very few people so they could pass on this vital information on how to learn and think in a more natural, powerful way so we can enjoy life and enhanced memory more.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system. Merri’s modified system shares her knowledge on how to think and learn more powerfully in our Spanish courses.  Now we are adapting this science to help delegates have better investing and business.

The learning system expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

Quantum Wealth changes the way a person thinks and learns forever.

The techniques help unlock the quantum potential that all people possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make anyone a startling 25% smarter, how subliminal messages can increase energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.  This is the system that we use for building wealth and for making decisions.

This Super Thinking system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 plus includes techniques and strategies that Merri has gained in her 41 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows how to increase mental power for success in a 21st century that is overwhelmed by information. The system is built from old and new sources ranging from raja yoga to contemporary unorthodox science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

Five Options

Each month delegates can choose to come to one, two, three, four or all five seminars and tours conducted in the month.  Multi tour adventures provide additional discounts.

Be sure to read tomorrow’s message which explains how to (save up to $35,449) attend as many of these seminars and tours as you desire FREE!

Gary

Comments from a real estate tour delegate:  Gary, A special thank you for the real estate tours that you provide. John and I did a lot of research and chose Ecuador as our first choice. Our visit in June exceeded our expectations of the info that we had gathered about the country. Ecuador also meets our top seven priorities: Cost of living, Climate, Cost of real estate, Heath care, Access to high speed internet, Accessibilty to the States and over all safety.  Our dream has always been to live on the beach and moving to Ecuador will make that dream come true.  Again, a big thank you for helping us make that dream come true.

Head south to Ecuador!

Oct. 21-24 Ecuador Import Export Tour (SOLD OUT)

Oct. 25-26 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

Comments from a Super Thinking + Spanish delegate:  I wanted you to know that the Spanish course has proven incredibly helpful. Dealing with internet service providers and shopping for appliances, etc., normally would have required me hiring a translator to follow me around. While it may not be pretty or 100% grammatically correct, I am understood. Thank you!  Saludos!

Nov. 9-10 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

Nov. 11-14 Ecuador Coastal Real Estate Tour

From a real estate buyer in Ecuador.  Hello Again Gary,  I am just outside Salinas in Punta Blanca I remember you saying a decade ago to start there. I have seen the price on land here jump directly on the beach now $300 to $500 a square meter and off the beach $80 to $100 square meter and the lots are not big an average lot is 250 square meters. I bought several lots in this area for less than half of the asking price today. I remember seeing a article about that you wrote a decade ago that you were able to buy lot’s here in Punta Blanca for a couple to a few thousand.  You also used Naples Florida as an example this I why I bought here in Punta Blanca YOU WERE RIGHT! It all started the night I came back from my first trip when I came across your website. If it was not for the knowledge that you share and international living none of this would have gone as smooth as it has. So Thank You Gary!

December 6-8 Blane Watson’s Beyond Logic & Shamanic Tour

December 9-10 Imbabura Real Estate Tour

December 11-13 Ecuador Coastal Real Estate Tour

Comments from delegates at our International Business & Investing Course.  We so enjoyed attending the IBEZ Seminar this past weekend in Jefferson, NC.  We loved the high country area, the nice people we met and particularly enjoyed the visit and tour of the New River Winery.  We were lucky to sit at a table with four utterly charming southern women, one of whom was Haskell’s wife.  As a retiree who saw her retirement sustain considerable loss due to the economy, I found the information you presented during the three days to be extremely helpful and showed a plausible way for me to have some recovery.  Besides all of the relevant information, your emphasis on honesty and the importance of not be deceptive was reassuring.  The bottom line is, that what gave real value to the information we were receiving and what made us feel comfortable was, that we felt you, Thomas and David were all people of good character.  Something that is very important to us.  We intend to do business with JGAM and Jyske Bank very soon.

Join us in the mountains and at the sea.  Attend more than one seminar and tour and save even more plus get the three emailed courses free.

Retire in Ecuador Spanish


If you retire in Ecuador…plan to speak Spanish.

ecuador-spanish-course

We visit the markets during our Ecuador Spanish course and practice what we learn.

We receive notes from readers every day and this one especially reminds me that speaking Spanish when you retire or live in Ecuador can do more than just help you communicate.

Hi Gary

Guess what? Your fantastic program is still working after all these years…Seriously, I took your Super Learning Class in August 2005. My Broker’s license needs to be renewed in 7 weeks so I just took my first continuing education class on-line today. My result is listed below:

Score: 25.0 of 25 (100.0%)  Passed

You passed the final exam. Congratulations!

Thanks again!

Our Super Thinking + Spanish courses do more than help you learn to speak Spanish or retire in Ecuador.  They help you become more effective in everything.

ecuador-spanish-course

We enjoy indigenous music at our Ecuador Spanish courses.

The same subscriber wrote two years ago:

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized my expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

Our Super Thinking + Spanish course is about using our minds better. Learning to speak Spanish is just a side benefit!

The ability to communicate in Spanish is really important.

Delegates at a previous Ecuador Spanish course we conducted in Cotacachi.

Spanish is the second most important language in the world.

Our Ecuador Spanish course goes beyond Spanish.  Super thinking is a method so revolutionary that in just a week you will be able to communicate…and even dream… in Spanish….plus much more.

Super thinking helps you learn how to unlock the power of your untapped knowledge in a little known, but scientifically proven way of learning that enhances the speed, accuracy and efficiency of your decision making process.

Super thinking improves your ability to absorb, retain and recall information.

Sound too good to be true?

This is not a gimmick or a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system and she has organized the Super Thinking program.

Whether you plan to visit, live or retire in Ecuador, Spanish can help you.

Ecuador Coffee & Rose Fragrance


Yesterday’s message looked at Ecuador coffee and opportunity in coffee shares.

One of the great joys in Ecuador at our hotel, Meson de las Flores, is the aroma of Ecuador coffee and the fragrance of flowers at breakfast.

Here is our balcony coffee table at our Meson suite. See how to stay here for a month.

ecuador-rose-news

A reader just sent this question asking about Ecuador rose fragrance.

Gary, I have a friend who would like to order Ecuador roses for her wedding.  I know the last time we ordered roses from Ecuador, they didn’t smell.  Is that happening to all the Ecuador rose farms or can she request Ecuador roses that smell?

The answer is that commercial Ecuador roses (probably all commercial roses) are hybrids that are focused on strength, color and durability at the expense of fragrance.  Most of the time Merri and I receive flowers that have aroma but not all the time.

The fragrance that roses have in natural condition that attracts bugs.

This is a reason why for commercial rose growing purposes that roses are cultivated so they do not have scent. Imagine over 100,000 roses at an Ecuador farm with fragrance, that attracts so many bugs that it would not be impossible to keep those bugs out of the fields.

Another reason is that fragrant roses tend to die sooner than roses that are not fragrant.

During shipping from Ecuador the roses expel gases.   Since the rose are shipped from Ecuador in a closed box the gases damage the flowers.

However there is a simple solution to have fragrant Ecuador roses that we use. We simply put a drop rose essential oil  in the water with our fresh Ecuador roses.  The fragrance is fantastic. If you want more, add a diffuser and the entire church will smell like a rose garden!

I sent this reader the solution and she replied:

Great idea on the oil.  I found out last night that that’s what my aunt did
on the wedding roses you sent for my reception too.  No wonder
they were so potent.  She says she does this all the time at home.

Having a bottle of Rose Otto essential oil around the house is a wonderful idea… to perk up the flowers in your home… to make rose water for drinking.  Merri and I put one drop on our pillow at night.  The fragrance is heavenly.

Rose is referred to as “The Queen of the Flowers”, and is the universal
symbol of all aspects of love.

Rose oil has been used for its medicinal properties and also has been the most prominent aroma for perfumes ever since human beings started using plants and essential oils for medicine and perfume.

There are many varieties of Rose essential oil, and the “Rosa damascena”
variety, a/k/a Rose otto (mostly from Bulgaria) is known as the very finest
of Rose oils. It is also one of the most expensive essential oils due to the
yield of oil per flower. It takes 300 lbs of rose petals to distill down to
1 oz of pure Rose essential oil.

The natural chemical make-up of rose is one of the most complex of all essential oils which is why it is so difficult to reproduce synthetically. This is good … Rose knows how to protect herself and deliver her true medicine and message from Mother Nature.

Rose is traditionally used to regulate the systems of the body, mind, and spirit. It
is the Oil of the Heart. It has been traditionally used for its antiseptic,
anti-inflammatory, and cooling properties.

Rose essential oil is one of the best essential oils for skin care … especially for sensitive and maturing skin. Put a drop on a cotton ball or handkerchief and keep this precious aroma carrying the true essence of the Rose flower around you.

Rose otto registers very high on the hertz frequency scale and delivers a
spiritual aroma. It can dramatically lift your spirits amongst the dross of
the world or the tasks of the day. It has always served human beings in the
most reverent way.

Our friend, the Oil Lady Candace Newman wrote:

Rose otto is the only one we carry … there are some other rose
oils.

Rose maroc is another well known one that is thicker and a deep red amber
color…it is a heavier rose and a little musky or earthy aroma as
compared to Rose otto.

Rose otto is the clearest and highest vibration and  aroma.

Putting a drop of rose oil on a 100% cotton, cotton ball …. or a
nice little handkerchief or piece of cloth, is a lovely way to enjoy the
aroma and have the properties of rose around you!

Candace also shared a tip for rose oil and weddings.

The purest and deepest rose aroma one can experience is pure Rose
essential oil. The most exquisite and well known as the finest of Rose oils
in the world is Rosa damascene … ie Rose otto, which  of course is also the dearest of them all.  There are 30 ml in an ounce which requires 300 pounds of rose petals.    Thus 4 mls of this oil is $196.95.

However, there are other varieties that are not as expensive.  There is Cabbage Rose (Rosa centifolia or Rose maroc) and another one is Tea
Rose ( Rosa indica).

To enhance the aroma of your flowers  add drops of rose oil to the flowers, or put a few drops in a bowl of warm water.  You can also put some in a room
diffuser…there are many on the market.

Tucking a cotton ball in close to your heart with 1-2 drops of Rose oil on it is absolutely lovely for yourself and everyone who comes anywhere near you. That would be lovely for the bride!  Cotton balls make perfect personal diffusers….as does a pretty lace handkerchief that she could carry or have in her bouquet.

Candace only offers rose otto essential oil which you can order here for $196.95.

Rose otto 4 ml

I also use Candace’s Rose Otto – Lavender – jojoba oil blend.  his has the wonderful rose otto fragrance at a far lower price.

This blend: Soothes & balances.
Nurtures the heart & sense of well-being.
Gentle & quiet.
Grieving & compassion.
Comforting to the heart.
Establishes feelings of love & peace.
Rejuvenates tissues.
Mother’s nurture.
Calming.

Heart Chakra and is far less expensive. One entire ounce (30 ml) is only $12.95. Order here. 1 ounce $12.95

Until next message, we hope your day and life is coming up roses.

Spanish in Cotacachi


Spanish is easy to learn in Cotacachi because Ecuadorians speak a very pure form of Spanish…

Many-roses

Plus El Meson in Cotacachi is the only place in Ecuador I believe where super thinking Spanish is taught.

Join us here in our Cotacachi courtyard at our hotel El Meson de las Flores to learn Spanish in a way that can improve your health and accelerate your intelligence all at the same time?

Spanish is the second most important language in the world. Yet the North American educational system does not teach much second language communication. Learning Spanish is valuable, important and can be fun! Join us in Cotacachi. Enjoy the beauty of the Andes…

Cotacachi-spanish-course

Learn super thinking. Clear up your memory plus become skilled in Spanish (in just one week). I invite you to attend our “Super Thinking – Super Spanish” course here, in Cotacachi Ecuador.

Cotacachi-spanish-course

Learn how to unlock the power of your untapped knowledge.

There are numerous little known, but scientifically proven ways to enhance the speed, accuracy and efficiency of your decision making process for greater wealth, health and happiness. In just a week you can gain almost amazing learning skills. Plus you become skilled in Spanish as a bonus. In just a week!

Sound too good to be true?

This is not a gimmick or a trick. At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

In 1980 Superlearning sold over two million copies and showed how the Lozanov learning system blended long-tested sciences of raja yoga with contemporary physiology and psychology so people could learn faster and better.

Merri was among those few who learned and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system. We have organized a program for you. With the use of Merri’s modified system, you will learn how to think and learn more powerfully in just a week. To prove how good you will be with this process, you learn Spanish as a side benefit.

The learning system you gain expands on Dr. Lozanov’s original work and offers new insights into tapping human potential, drawing from ancient and modern tactics for quick learning such as subliminal memory, music, nutrition, and productivity.

For example, you learn how to evoke the power of the senses thus gaining super-charged memory. Ever hear a song from twenty, thirty or forty years past and in a snap know all the words, the tune and remember with whom and where your heard it decades ago? Learn how to use ten cycle music to gain almost super human thinking powers.

Dr. Georgi Lozanov was totally committed to learning without stress, allowing people to enjoy the thrill of relaxed, leisurely learning so that it became super learning as well. These are just two, whole learning, super-thinking tactics you gain at this course.

You will gain seven, easy to use learning techniques that can help you gain any type of skill from computers to athletics to conversational languages–in much less time than traditional learning techniques.

This course will literally change the way you think and learn forever.

Course for one $799. Order here

Course for Two $999. Order here

What is your desire? Do you want to speak Spanish, French, German, Chinese or any language? Would you like to golf better or accomplish more in school?

Would you like to easily, quickly zip through projects, chores, reports? The Super Thinking course can help you learn any subject two-to-five times faster, in exciting and innovative ways…but most of all stress free and full of fun.

The techniques you gain will help unlock the quantum potential we all possess. This evolutionary program shows how certain types of music can enhance learning and how even altered nutrition can make you a startling 25% smarter, how subliminal messages can increase your energy and thinking process, plus much, much more.

This Super Thinking system follows and builds upon what was taught in the Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 plus includes techniques and strategies that Merri has gained in her 37 years of global travel and study with educational masters around the world.

This is a course that shows you how to increase your mental power to better succeed in the 21st century when we can otherwise be overwhelmed by information. The system you gain is built from old and new sources ranging from raja yoga to contemporary Russian science, and ultimate zone training already used by many Olympic champions.

“Super Thinking + Spanish” presents new ways to use subliminal memory, music and much more to supercharge your mind. The knowledge you gain about smart food and super nutrition allows you to enhance productivity and creativity. Once these concepts are understood, you will know how to create your own program and build new skills at work in study and play. In addition you gain all the tools to quickly become fluent in Spanish.

Yet who has the time?

You do! Fluency in a language is considered to come when you know 1200 words. To prove that it is possible to gain this and much more, let me share one tactic Merri taught me that gives you thousands of Spanish words in less than three minutes.

Here are the thousands of Spanish words lesson:

Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.

Now you already literally know hundreds and hundreds of Spanish nouns. This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons you gain. The next lesson teaches you how to pronounce each of these nouns. Then you learn in a third lesson almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds). This simple lesson leaves you sounding like a Spanish professor (believe me I know as I use this tactic every day when in Ecuador ) without ever conjugating a verb. Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything you want in Spanish. Lesson six gives you the valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples your Spanish capacity with yesterday, now and tomorrow.

By the end of the one week course you will feel quite comfortable speaking Spanish without stress!

Yet your Spanish will just be one result from learning how to think better! You will be able to use your new learning powers in amazing ways. For example, this attendee at our last course wrote:

“Hi Gary & Merri, You two are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized my expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Well, as you can see prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!” Suzy Kurinsky

Cotacachi Ecuador Shamanic Aqua Flora


Cotacachi Ecuador shamanic aqua floras (floral essential oils) are used in most shamanic ceremonies and shamanic purifications in Cotacachi.

One reason Merri and I live in Cotacachi is because our Ecuador shamanic teachers all agree that the energy between Mt. Cotacachi and Mt. Imbabura is special. This area is called the mid point of the world and we continually study with shamans here. Here is Mt. Cotacachi.

Ecuador-shamanic-oils

Frequency is a key to Ecuador shamanic healing. Shamanic belief is that everything creates a harmonic frequency or vice versa. At a grand level being sandwiched between two Mt Cotacachi and Mt Imbabura creates a special energetic harmonic (bundle of frequencies).

Here is Mt. Imbabura taken from Mt. Cotacachi. Cotacachi is in the middle of this small valley between these two 15,000+ feet high mountains.

Cotacachi-condos

At the most minute level, correct harmonics create our emotional and physical health.

Here is the Shamana of Zuleta preparing to use the frequency of tobacco smoke and aqua flora in a cleansing ceremony. She will use these frequencies to balance subtle, human frequencies.

Ecuador-shamanic-oils

Every part of our being, (mind body and soul if you wish) hums at a frequency. When all parts of our body are humming at a correct frequency and these frequencies are connected (and in tune) we are at ease and in good health.

When any part of us hums at the wrong frequency or is disconnected from the whole, we have dis-ease.

Cotacachi shamans infuse the essence, (frequency or vibratory energy) of different aspects of life (derived from plants), in water, alcohol or oil.

The fastest way to absorb healing energy is through the skin and lungs. The shamans use mists and oils to impart these frequencies to counterbalance physical and or emotional imbalances that create dis-ease. Cotacachi shamanic purifications do not wash away impurities as much as they balance misaligned frequencies so they once again hum as they should.

Essential oils hold the energy better than water and though each (mists and oils) have a purpose (a mist is essentially a diluted essential oil) the root of aqua flora is essential oil. Therefore the Cotacachi yatchaks, shamans and curanderos revere good, pure essential oils.

Often they mix essential oils with alcohol to balance subtle levels of human frequency. They deliver the frequency with an explosive mist, spitting the essential oil through a flame. Here is a shaman performing this ceremony at one of our previous Cotacachi shamanic mingos.

Merri and I use pure, essential oils daily and buy them from our friend Candace Newman…the oil lady, for our own use. We also give them as shamanic gifts when we are in Cotacachi…or anywhere with shamans. They are always enormously grateful at receiving pure, essential oils. They call them gifts from the forces of nature.

We have known Candace for over 30 years and began using her oils when the shamans of Cotacachi taught us how they work.

Merri and I lived and studied with the yatchaks and shamans for years to better understand how they live and heal. Candace joined us at our North Carolina farm and our 926 acre Andean Hacienda Rosaspamba where we lived with a taita yatchak and his apprentices. She also trained with the yatchaks throughout Ecuador and Peru.

We used to walk the ridges here at Rosaspamba, speaking of what we learned.

Ecuador-shamanic-oils

I asked Candace to write some articles about the wisdom she gained form the yatchaks about essential oil. Here is one of the ideas she has shared:

“Pure Lavender Essential Oil in Ecuador

“Ever since I traveled to England to learn about essential oils in the early 1990’s, I have kept a little bottle of Lavender in my bag wherever I go. My trips to Ecuador and Peru were just another example of how life is better with Lavender…and traveling without essential oils, is like traveling without your toothbrush. I don’t spend lots of time packing clothes….but I do spend time packing my essential oils.

“Pure Lavender Essential Oil (Lavandula officinalis from Bulgaria) is a high grade medicinal quality essential oil. Its natural chemistry makes it anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-bacterial. It’s the #1 stress reliever and sleep aid. The natural chemical constituents are known to balance the central nervous system. If you are down, it will bring you up…and if you are too anxious, it will calm you down.

“I call Lavender “the River of Peace”. It is from the Latin word LAVARE which means TO WASH. The aroma washes our emotions and the medicinal liquid washes and soothes the skin. The essential oil is steam-distilled from the flowers. It is very strong and very concentrated.

“On my trips to Ecuador and Peru, Lavender was either in my fanny-pak or my traveler’s vest pocket. Just inhaling it on the airplanes, cars and buses when my energy was low … made me and others feel better.

“Many of the days I had a cotton ball charged with just one drop of Lavender in my pocket as a diffuser. I also gave a “cotton ball of Lavender” to one lady who was feeling fearful on the cliff-hanging road up to Rosaspamba outside Quito.

“Lavender is the first choice for nervousness; Peppermint is the first choice for motion sickness. Another time one lady was feeling weak from hypoglycemia, so breathing the Lavender as we headed for lunch helped bring her back to a better state of balance.

“In my month at Rosaspamba, I was up one morning before dawn with two of the Yachak’s apprentices and we were going to hike down the road to a waterfall for a ceremony and “shower”. It was cold, dark, and wet. The clouds of fog were very thick. One apprentice slipped on the wooden steps coming out of the “hacienda” and slammed her shin on the step. I could see by her face that she was in real pain, but was covering it up. I had my flashlight and asked her if I could see it. The skin was broken and a huge bump was forming.

“With her glad permission, I put a couple of drops of straight Lavender on the area to cut down the inflammation and pain. We made our journey to the waterfall….did the Lavender and cold water treatment there…journeyed back…and did the Lavender treatment again. The wide-eyed amazement and smile on her face was delightful to see!

“An additional great source of comfort was the 1-2 drops of Lavender on a cotton ball that went in my pillow at night in my funny little bed at Rosaspamba. It certainly helps tuck you in at night and promote a good night’s sleep.

“Another time we went into a little village outside Quito on the bus (I really don’t know WHERE we were) and walked across fences and pig farms to visit 2 older Ecuadorian women. One of the Yachak’s apprentices rented a room here sometimes. One of the women was in bed and quite weak with pain in her face from cancer. With her permission, I sat on her bed and made a blend in my palm with some Organic Golden Jojoba and a drop of Lavender.

“I very gently rubbed this on her face. She looked up at me with a twinkle in her eyes and our glance said it all. We couldn’t speak each other’s language…and if we could it would have ruined the silent language our hearts were speaking.

“Lavender to the rescue” again on the climb up Waynu Picchu above Machu Picchu. I was not feeling well, and my day’s nutrition was honey and water. About ¼ of the way up the mountain I passed out cold on the path. Then awakened with wonderful energy to finish the trek. When I got back to the bottom, inhalations of Lavender helped me get grounded again, and feel balanced.

“There are many reasons why Lavender is the #1 essential oil to have in your “medicine chest” no matter where you are. There are well over 400 essential oils, and Lavender is the most versatile and useful. The comfort and balance it brings to our emotional state is well documented … as is the relief from aches and pains due to its anti-inflammatory natural medicine.

“For rubbing it on large areas, combine it with a base oil. For spot work, like a burn or cut….use one drop straight. Inhalation is reason enough just to have it with you. You…or someone close by….is bound to need some! What a powerful, yet simple medicinal remedy this is. Happy Trails…..with Lavender!”

Recently Merri and I hiked into a sacred valley in the shadow of Mount Cotacachi. Here is Merri, with Cotacachi shaman Don Jose, headed for a Cotacachi shamanic ceremony at a grotto where the water flows from the rocks in the color of gold.

We hike to a quiet glen next to the grotto where shamanic ceremonies are performed.

Here is the grotto.

Don Jose brings his aqua flora. When we arrives, he removes his shoes and hat. He needs the uninhibited frequencies of the forces of nature in his hair and flowing though his feet to properly perform the ceremony.

Join Merri, me, Don Jose and Blaine Watson in the sacred valley this February 2009 to learn how to fuse quantum mechanics, from the tiniest thought, to the entire universe for greater ease in health and wealth. See how, why and when at Ecuador shamanic thought.
