    Metaphysics for Black People from Reverse Oreo White Jamaican Healer Part 1

    in Spirituality

    Kayt Healing Arts oppressed by slavery will be spoken about in detail and how this mixture of tribal, eastern, and western healing forms can benefit black people everywhere. Tribal thought how it is so different then the American way of thinking and how this affects people of African decent today! This information is part of your heritage and has been oppressed from you "the black people". The irony is I the white person was entrusted with this knowledge before leaving the Caribbean.


    “Kyat is a secret group of Caribbean healers that I was privileged to be part of. As the only Caucasian allowed into this organization I had access to privileged information that is not been shared with the Western world. Recently the headmaster has passed to the other side. He came to me in a dream and a meditation and told me it was time to share the secrets with the Western world. He already sent me here to learn the way of the West. And to spend time in the Western world. I never thought it would come to this. But I called down to confirm his passing with his neighbor; because of course he doesn't have a telephone. The neighbor confirmed his passing as well as a written message left to me saying only one thing "Rembrandt it is time". This to me is the message that it is time to share the teachings of my secret Healer group Kyat.


    I was allowed in: I was only allowed in because of who my parents are, passing the tests that they had sent me through to confirm my natural abilities, and the fact that I was going to stay on the island. This is highly unusual being Caucasian. Because of these reasons I was allowed into the group. When I joined I was about 15.  I had no idea they had started recruiting me when I was 11 or 12.  When I began studying with them the majority of them were in their 80s and I realized then that this was a dying group; but I stayed with them anyway because the knowledge that they offered was to....

    Health You and I :Essential oils and Jamaican herbs,use in illness and cooking

    Live: Essential oils  and Jamaican herbs - its use in illness and cooking


    An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the "oil of" the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is "essential" in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.Essential oils do not form a distinctive category for any medical, pharmacological, or culinary purpose. They are not essential for health.


    Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.


    Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer and often are based solely on historical accounts of use of essential oils for these purposes. Claims for the efficacy of medical treatments, and treatment of cancers in particular, are now subject to regulation in most countries.As the use of essential oils has declined in evidence-based medicine, one must consult older textbooks for much information on their use.


    Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades with the popularity of aromatherapy, a branch of alternative medicine that claims that essential oils and other aromatic compounds have curative effects. Oils are volatilized or diluted in a carrier oil and used in massage, diffused in the air by a nebulizer, heated over a candle flame, or burned as incense.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Essential_oil.
