Perelandra Question Forum
September 21, 2013

As part of our Virtual Open House, we offered an Online Question Forum with Machaelle answering your questions!

Okay, that's it! I have to go — my dog is farting like crazy and I'm about to pass out so I need to get outta here and take him for a walk. Bye folks!
— Machaelle

Erin's Question: I have experienced irregular heart beats for several years and medical diagnoses reports that it is a benign condition. I take ETS Plus on an as needed basis and sometimes the essences. What would you recommend? Thank you.

Machaelle's Answer: I suggest you also include MAP on a regular basis while you're dealing with this situation.

Louisa's Question: Thanks much for all these answers! I keep seeing folks talking about using EoP like I've always used the human ETS - silly question maybe but can you specify different situations, etc. when to use one over the other?

Machaelle's Answer: Use ETS Plus when you're dealing with any kind of traumatic situation, and see Chapter 8 of The Perelandra Essences book for a good description on how and when to use ETS Plus. Use EoP for general strengthening and balancing.

Connie's Question: What can I do to reduce the inflammation and subsequent pain of spinal stenosis and spondelistthesis (grade 1) on my L4-5. Surgery has been recommended. Thank you so much In love and light

Machaelle's Answer: Try taking ETS Plus for Humans 5 times a day until this is resolved. If more is needed, expand to the Perelandra Essences and Telegraph Testing for Chronic Illness/Injury (see question #49).

Russ's Question: Hi Machaelle! Thank you for all the work you do. In the Perelandra Organizing Process, can ETS+ be used instead of testing for essences when opening and closing the coning?

Machaelle's Answer: Yes! Thanks for your thanks.

Catherine's Question: Hi Machaelle- Thank you for your work! I'm fully aware of what is really going on in the world and the great shift upon us. I realize there will be more disturbing events both man-made and nature-made such as shootings and floods. In the aftermath, we are blessed to have your essences. My question is: Is there a way that you get (or we can get) information from Nature about what is upcoming (at least nature-related) in our regions? Thank you.

Machaelle's Answer: The answer is no. It all depends on what everbody in the region is doing to muss up their environment at any given time. Once you add humans into the mix, you've got a crap shoot.

Nancy's Question: What do you suggest for strengthening resistance to community-acquired MRSA? My husband's had two bouts. Our son picked up MRSA at college 3 years years ago, likely picked up in the gym, as an athlete. Our neighbor, an ER doc, told us he just got it. Also, the same son had Lymes the summer before MRSA. He and my husband caught both infections very early on and both responded well to antibiotics, However what to do to build resistant against any lingering potential of reinfection or further complications? Thanks to you and all there for your great work.

Machaelle's Answer: Build up the immune system with the MBP Immune and Lymphatic Solutions and take them twice daily. Build up your over-all balance with Essence of Perelandra (EoP) and take that twice daily. If you're also working with Microbial Balancing Program, call the Question Hot Line for tips on how to use this as well.

Ana's Question: Greetings Machaelle -- As I have deepened my direct experience of the Sacred Sentience of the plants, etc., I have become increasingly sensitive to the distress of the natural world in places where it is not honored/listened to in our culture. Wondering if you have any tips on handling "excursions" into these sad places/towns, etc. where nature just seems to be viewed as a backdrop for human activities. Thank you.

Machaelle's Answer: 1. Move to Sedona. 2. Avoid the peyote. 3. Don't ask me this kind of a question this late in the day or you'll get this kind of an answer! Consider reading The Perelandra Garden Workbook.

Thomas's Question: Hello! Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the Question Line folks for all the amazing help you've provided me over the years! Also, thanks for all the awesome specials you have on your products. I'm very grateful for that as well.

Machaelle's Answer: I do so know who you are Thomas! I'm passing along your collective thanks. And thanks right back!

Louisa's Question: As usual, thanks so much for everything. I use many things Perelandra everyday & am exceedingly grateful for all of it. My questions concern the original cocreative troubleshooting sheet from Workbook 2 and the new Workbook - I can't quite figure out when/if/how to use that original TS chart. Does the new workbook replace both Garden Workbook one and two, including all the wonderful processes I've come to count on in Workbook 2? Thanks so much for clarifying....

Machaelle's Answer: The Perelandra Garden Workbook completely replaces the original Workbook and Workbook II. Completely. So you are not using the original "ts chart" ever again. The new Troubleshooting 2.1 replaces the original troubleshooting.

Hilary's Question: I'm trying to work out which MBS Solution(s) I should be taking for teno-synovitis. Does the synovial sheath fall under 'Integumentary'? (Sorry, I should have thought to include this question along with my last.)

Machaelle's Answer: Try the MBP Immune, Lymphatic, Cell, Muscular, Skeletal and Urinary Solutions twice daily. See if that helps.

Catherine's Question: Hi Machaelle- Thank you so much for your amazing work. I have heavily promoted it. I've lived in N.VA for the last few years not far from you. I find the Capital energy heavy and difficult to live near. (1) What would you recommend that might help balance out the energy for me? (2) Do you feel that certain people are aligned to certain spots in nature or on the earth more than others and if so (or even if not!:-) Can you recommend a process to figure that out? (Some sort of coning I'm assuming?) Many Thanks.

Machaelle's Answer: #1. Vote in a better congress. #2. The easiest thing to say is to live where you feel drawn to. Good luck!

Katherine's Question: Just a story here. I set up a new SLG yesterday, should have done so months ago. The first Environmental adjustment needed was to clean desk, floor, table and all the stuff in my work studio. I did so, plus re-arranged things, and whoosh, such fresh energy. I was puzzled though by one instruction: "phone updates" and thought, what, a new phone already? Then I saw my husband a little later and he said, "We have to update our phones. There's a new operating system out and things won't work well until we do that." Nature, always a step ahead. Thanks for the gift of the Perelandra processes.

Machaelle's Answer: You're very welcome and I'm very glad that things are working well for you!

Beatrice's Question: I have been using all your flower essences and your Workbooks since the late 80's. Thank you for this body of work which really resonates so much with me. My second question: While doing an SLG troubleshooting process and testing positive for a personal calibration or MAP coning, do I stay in the SLG coning and open the calibration or MAP coning within it? Or is this entirely separate and done outside the SLG coning?

Machaelle's Answer: Your Calibration or MAP is done separately, outside of your soil-less garden coning / troubleshooting.

Kristina's Question: Thanks for your answers Machaelle. Another question: May I ask what you have planted in your new fall/winter section of the garden? I just looked at the week 1 photo gallery on your website. I enjoy those pictures each week, thanks for posting them.

Machaelle's Answer: We haven't planted yet. Keep watching the weekly photo gallery and eventually you'll see stuff growing (we hope!).

Gaea's Question: Hi Machaelle, thank you for the great work you are doing. My body is in congestive heart failure. In July my doc asked if I was drinking alcohol, because my liver is enlarged. At that point I stopped taking the essences, concerned that the brandy was a problem. My question is, if I take all the essences some 2X a day, how much brandy am I actually drinking?

Machaelle's Answer: If you take all of the essences twice daily, it's less than a tablespoon of diluted alcohol a day. If you're concerned about the alcohol, consider switching to the vinegar-preserved essences.

Laura's Question: Gracious Greetings to ALL and thank YOU Machaelle for being with us today. I was given the Garden Essences as a gift but cannot afford to buy the book that explains how to use them. Is there a summary or some guidance somewhere regarding when and how to use them? I've been using MAP for a couple of years and take the Lymphatic and Immune MBPs nightly. Thanks for any info and/or direction you can offer. Happy Autumn ALL!

Machaelle's Answer: There's a brochure with instructions that should have been included. It's available free online here. If you have more questions after reading it, call the Question Hot Line this Wednesday.

Elizabeth's Question: I am a long-time postmenopausal woman who is spotting again. Last year, my Dr. did a biopsy which was clear. I’d like to know what processes to do to prepare better this time for whatever procedures I have to undergo. Last year, all I had time to do was MAP, essence testing, MBPs, EOP & ETS. Even with pain meds, the exam/biopsy/PAP test extravaganza was very painful. Any way to reduce that beyond the above? Would a D&C be considered an operation, thus the surgery processes in the Essences book? I’m not concerned, and my MAP team was very clear there was no need to hurry home from vacation. Obviously, I need to address this issue more fully with my MAP team so I don’t do this anymore. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

Machaelle's Answer: You're doing fine with how you're addressing this. A D&C is surgery. Take ETS Plus immediately after any treatments or medications. That should reduce the pain if not completely take care of it. I can't think of anything to suggest to you.

Helen's Question: I have had very bad hives since June. Started with prickly scalp and bad 'urine' smell on scalp. Then hives which have move to back and front and arms. Nothing helps. Two doctors have not helped. Drops have not helped. Kidney problem? Tests say kidney/bladder are fine. Any ideas? THANKS so much!

Machaelle's Answer: Consider adjusting your diet to Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type. I also suggest taking this MAP. Plan to let them work with you on this 2 or 3 times a week until you're through it.

Lindsey's Question: I have been running my business as an SLG for 5 years now, and it's been really great and I so appreciate how it works! My business is a retreat on 160 acres, the whole focus of the retreat is to be in harmony with nature. When I read about the new water and atmosphere essence I got a hit to use it, but it says only for gardens,as opposed to soil-less gardens. Since my business is pretty well based in nature, can i use it for the SLG? I will ask my team as well, but I am interested in your take!

Machaelle's Answer: You can only use ETS Plus for Atmosphere and ETS Plus for Water within the context of Troubleshooting 2.1 within the Perelandra Garden Workbook. That's what it's designed for. If you get a different answer from your team, you're getting the answer you want to hear rather than the answer you should hear.

Julie's Question: I am becoming a little sensitive to EMFs. Do I use the flower essence set or do you have a solution for this?

Machaelle's Answer: You could telegraph test the essences for your symptoms. Also, if you're working with MAP you could address this in your MAP sessions.

Mary Lou's Question: This past year I worked with the White Brotherhood during a couple of Soil-less Garden art projects, and they really feel like friends! Last night I started to read the MAP book. Years ago, when I was going to an energy healer, he worked with me and then during one session said, "'They' do not want to help you anymore. You have more to work on within yourself." I was devastated … and have never forgotten. I did not understand and I don't know who 'they' were. I truly felt 'less than' in my life's timing. Now, as I become more committed to Perelandra's teachings, I wonder if the White Brotherhood will stay with me for the long haul.

Machaelle's Answer: #1. Never talk to that "energy healer" again. #2. I don't know who "they" are either. #3. The White Brotherhood doesn't walk out on you. So relax and just keep moving forward with MAP.

Susan's Question: For 13 years I have been having severe muscle wasting. Drs are baffled and give no useful help. I have been using the full range of drops for decades and see no improvement for the muscle wasting. Can you help?

Machaelle's Answer: I'm sorry to do this to you, but I'm having difficulty understanding your question. Would you mind calling the Question Hot Line on Wednesday and talking this through?

hilary's Question: I have injured my wrist and am not supposed to use that hand for six weeks. This makes PKTT impossible. What other method could I use for essence testing etc.?

Machaelle's Answer: Back off of Essence testing for now and take ETS Plus 3 to 5 times daily and MBP Immune, Lymphatic, Muscular and Skeletal Solutions twice daily. Do this until you can resume PKTT testing.

Beatrice's Question: My work has been extremely stressful these last few weeks as there is a lot of it and it is dealing with public schools in NYC and placing our staff withing these schools. I have lost my fragile balance time and time again during the last 3 weeks. I am still recovering from last year's treatments for cancer. I use the MBP solutions, ETS, EoP and have started the troubleshooting MB Process in the last month as well. I also have MAP sessions as time allows. I think the answer to my question is to work less but it would cause more worries. Any suggestions?

Machaelle's Answer: Add EB&S twice daily. And yes, I agree with you — you should be working less. But I understand about your concerns.

Jody's Question: Just completed a small water garden with meandering stream working in partnership with Nature Intelligence and my husband, Joel. It was completed in about two weeks! (a project that could easily have been months) It is very charming. All new/transplanted trees and plants responded well with ETS for Plants. This water garden was in response to a larger balancing of very disruptive sound frequency and noise vibration from neighbor's sick hot tub. My question is this: Would you address the element of time in the process? Even though I am told that the work we did (re: the hot tub) is complete, and that the hot tub is no longer on, this outcome does not match our current reality. Thank you. -Jody

Machaelle's Answer: I'm not sure I understood your question. But if you worked on your neighbor's "sick hottub" without your neighbor's permission, that was manipulation and that may be why you're not getting much of a response.

Michael's Question: Dear Machaelle, I live just outside of Boulder Colorado and I have many friends that live in Boulder and in the surrounding communities There is a lot of shock in the field here that shows up in both subtle and very palpable ways I'm wondering if there is something I can do with your remedies and other solutions that might be able to help settle and calm down the shock field

Machaelle's Answer: Release ETS Plus into the environment around and over Boulder, CO and that makes it available to people who would be open to it. Do that once daily. If your friends are open to it, suggest that they get ETS Plus and take it 5 times a day while they get through this crisis period. Taking it directly would be more effective than getting brushed by it in the atmosphere. Because we're talking about the Colorado floods, they are eligible for the Perelandra Responds discount which we give for people who are surrounded by crisis (and also for emergency responders). Tell them that when they call to order, let us know that they are in Colorado and are eligible for the discount because of the flooding.

Marilyn's Question: Hi Machaelle, "thank you" to you and every one at Perelandra. I just ordered my first set of nature cards! I clicked on "customer comments" for some tips but didn't find any. I know they can not be used with MAP, but can they be used with flower essences and telegraph testing?

Machaelle's Answer: The Nature Cards are to be used with gardening. Some people have used them for personal questions. All you have to do is set up the coning as directed, ask the question and draw the card(s). But they're not to be used with essences and telegraph testing.

Kate's Question: As a blood type O negative, my body wants meat. Lately, however, I find myself not inclined to eat meat, and if i do, only very little, often fish. I have been following a basic eating plan that is tailored for my particular blood type, but now that I eat meat less frequently, should I be concerned by the lack of protein I'm getting? Furthermore, eating a raw food diet is more appealing than ever.

Machaelle's Answer: Other than taking Weight Balancing and EB&S or talking to your MAP team about this issue, I don't have anything more to add.

Michael's Question: Dear Machaelle, What a treat to be able to ask you a direct question! Almost exactly a year ago I was in a severe mountain biking accident and broke my neck bones in many places and severely damaged my spinal cord at the level of C-5 I am paralyzed from the chest down and I have limited function in my arms and A ton of hardware in my neck For the past month I have been testing myself for the flower essences on a daily basis and feel like this is helping but I'm also wondering what else you might suggest I focus on There is the obvious physical trauma but there's also the spiritual trauma emotional trauma that also goes along with this injury and almost dying multiple times I surrendered to the medical model initially and more recently I've been taking more personal control over my path to recovery thus only using the flower essences recently Sorry I couldn't figure out how to make this question any more concise

Machaelle's Answer: It's my firm belief that the key to repairing and rejuvenating the nervous system is through the electric system and the Essences. With that in mind, I recommend that you advance your testing to Telegraph Testing for Chronic Illness. But in this case, "Chronic Illness" means "Chronic Injury." Set that testing up carefully, and if you need help in setting this up, call our Question Hot Line and let us help you set this up. Also, taking the MBP Immune, Lymphatic, Digestive and Nervous Solutions can generally improve the health of those systems (twice daily). Your symptoms list is probably going to be rather extensive, but it's important to go ahead and list everything. If you feel you're in a corner, don't be afraid to call us for help.

Keith's Question: When co-creating with Nature Intelligence in an SLG project which involves the creation of something new in the world, is the deva of the SLG project "a new born" deva which only received it's existence when my mental intent was sustained with enough energy to call forth from Nature this devic being...or is this not the way it is at all? You know, is there a kind of chain of command devic authority which stands in for it's protegee while the "new" SLG deva gets it's birthing aligned with the SLG practitioner's project??

Machaelle's Answer: Dude, just work with the deva of your project and don't worry about when it's born! Whatever the name of the project is is the name of the deva you're working with. If you haven't named it yet, with a good DDP you can simply say "the deva of my project."

Kate's Question: I've been engaged in co-creative living for several years and have had incredible results. I am seeking help with sugar addiction. I am using the new EB&S and the weight balancing solutions twice daily, started using them 1X/day and then increaed to AM and PM. Do you have suggestions for what else I can do?

Machaelle's Answer: Follow the Eat Right 4 Your Type diet as it's specifically laid out for your blood type. That helps tremendously. (Eat Right 4 Your Type by Dr. Peter J. D'Adamo)

Mariamne's Question: Hi Machaelle, Thank you for all your inspiration and splendid work which I have been incorporating into my practice since 1997. My question: My body seems to want to take the MBP Solutions in the morning, not at night (could be that p.m I am more sensitive to brandy or vinegar). I always seem to forget when I try to switch back to night . . . so mornings seem to work for me. I recall, possibly that you have suggested that evening is better?!

Machaelle's Answer: It's not a suggestion, it's the instructions for how to use the MBP Balancing Solutions. For best results, follow the instructions!

Helka's Question: Hello Machaelle, I’m more than pleased with the results of flower essence testing in line with your book The Perelandra Essences. I didn’t know what to expect when I started testing essences last spring -- and was amazed to experience the almost immediate and very positive results! The problem was sore spots and wounds in my mouth due to a visit to a dental hygienist to have my teeth cleaned. I made a symptoms list and started testing the Perelandra flower essences as instructed in the book. In three days, my mouth was completely well again. I was amazed – and very happy. As far as I know, there is no known medical cure for such tissue wounds and sore spots in the mouth. That makes the Perelandra methods unique and worth gold! Thank you for all the great healing methods and the products you have developed in partnership with nature! I use many of them with good results. Helka from Finland

Machaelle's Answer: I'm really pleased to hear this. And really pleased that you're experiencing such good success. Thank you for letting me hear from you.

Eve's Question: I recently forgot to do a follow-up for one of my SLG. When that happens, do I need to start the garden from scratch?

Machaelle's Answer: No, just retest the troubleshooting. Just pick up right there. Because you didn't do the follow-up, you may have more to do in that next troubleshooting.

Maria's Question: I know of an autistic child with severe allergies. I'd like to have MAP sessions for her (re: the allergies; not the autism). I think it's possible she may learn to do it for herself, which would be great. Any suggestions, cautions, etc. are most appreciated. Thanks!

Machaelle's Answer: The MAP book outlines how to set up MAP for a child. There are restrictions listed in the book. You'll need to read that carefully and follow those guidelines. And you'll need to be physically in the room with the child during this work.

Nancy's Question: Why is a separate solution needed for bites and stings when ETS does such a great job with this? THANK YOU, THANK YOU ALL FOR THE REALLY FINE WORK YOU DO AND PRODUCTS YOU OFFER!!

Machaelle's Answer: When it comes to insect activity, Bites & Stings addresses the issues more comprehensively. ETS Plus is more of an umbrella approach for after you've been bitten or stung.

Niseema's Question: Dear Machaelle, An embarrassing question . . . one I think you have answered before, but Beth and I could not find the answer. Can one kiss one's partner after taking the MBP Solutions at night and if yes, then is there a time period you need to wait to do that? Thank you and deep gratitude for all that you are doing to help humans, plants, animals and the environment.

Machaelle's Answer: Since you asked the question . . . We took a poll with all of the women here and we've come up with a protocol: As a general rule, take the MBP Solutions last thing at night. If the kiss that led to remarkable sex was especially good and you fall asleep before you take your Solutions, then you've simply missed that evening dose. Make sure you take your Solutons the next morning. Also, as a general rule, it's fine to kiss your partner after taking your Solutions.

Julie's Question: I have Chronic Lyme Disease. In the past I've used MBP very successfully. All of my joint pain went away. Thank you. My main symptom now is extreme fatigue. I find it overwhelming to do the Microbial Balancing Program (MBP) or the chronic disease protocol in the essence book. Any suggestions? Also would like to know which of the new products would be good to use to avoid the possibility of future tick bites. Thank you so much for creating this work.

Machaelle's Answer: Try taking the MBP Immune, Lymphatic, Endocrine, Muscular and Urinary Solutions twice daily to move this through. And build up your strength and balance by taking Bites & Stings twice daily. Even though you're not in tick season, take it twice daily. See if this helps.

Mark's Question: Hi Machaelle, Just a quickie can you recommend a protocol for Vertigo. Thanks Mark

Machaelle's Answer: I also have vertigo from time to time. I have great success when taking it to my MAP team, so I suggest you try that.

Elizabeth's Question: For the Equinox tomorrow, how do my husband and I incorporate all of our gardens and personal cycle? We each have our own SLGs and a joint SLG and I have a 2.0 Garden. Thanks so much to you and all your staff -- and for the new solutions, wonderful additions to your product line. Also, I need to make changes to my 2.0 Garden DDP. Should I make the change today or after tomorrow’s Equinox? Thanks.

Machaelle's Answer: Make the DDP change in your garden today, before the equinox. You and your husband each separately set up for the equinox with your respective SLGs. For the joint SLG, you are each setting up for your participation in that SLG. You don't need to be together for that.

JL's Question: Does Energy Balancing & Stabilizing solution help with mentally/emotionally-based energy imbalances as well as physically-based (such as feelings of being overwhelmed or difficulty concentrating, even while physical health is good)? Will taking it help me be more receptive to changes I need to make in lifestyle to have more energy (such as eating better)?

Machaelle's Answer: For the mentally and emotionally based energy imbalances, it's worth giving it a shot and taking EB&S. It gives you the energy for being receptive to lifestyle changes. For eating and weight issues, I recommend taking Weight Balancing and EB&S. They work well together.

Elizabeth's Question: I am using the Microbial Balancing Program and loving it. It works. Thanks so much for your getting it out to the rest of us. I wonder if when doing the Essence Process for Microbes from the troubleshooting list and it needs to be taken orally if you need to do an NS shift or just take it. I often test for all 25 balancers can I have packets set up of all balancers and just add factor x?

Machaelle's Answer: If the Essences for the Microbes are to be taken orally, take them orally. I don't recommend that you make these balancer packets. The time that they're sitting will allow them to mix into a completely different kind of unit with a different dynamic. So continue to keep them separate. One thing you can do, which is not going to create a problem is to open your vials and keep the caps off while you're going through this intensive testing. When you're finished for the day, you can just set the cap onto the vial and not bother screwing it on. Just doing this one little thing can facilitate keeping the balancers separate and make it less painful to work with.

Kimberly's Question: Hi Machaelle - Do you have any recommendations for treating and also avoiding a poison ivy rash? I have two family members who just can't seem to stay away from it! Thanks in advance.

Machaelle's Answer: In order to avoid poison ivy, you have to look at what you're touching. Until your family members are willing to do this, you could just let them keep getting the rash until they say "uncle."
As for treating, try MBP Immune, Lymphatic and Integumentary Solutions on a daily basis to raise their strength and balance so the rash isn't as serious. (Unless you want them to continue getting the serious rash until they yell "uncle" &#151 then wait and have them take the Solutions.)

Eve's Question: I love EoP and have used it internally whenever it tested positive, as well shifting it for issues+projects, and recently even, inspired by someone's entry in "Voices," at the beginning of a day to set the tone for what I want to accomplish. The results have been impressive: I am still the one doing the work, but I have felt immense support and grounding. And yet I find it difficult to explain this to others. Someone called it "snake oil" because it does so much, another friend told me, her manifesting powers are strong, she does not need it.

Machaelle's Answer: I understand your pain — my best advice is to stop talking to these people. If they can't hear, they can't hear. But we understand and we congratulate you on your success. And we know you're not crazy!

Eve's Question: I have set up an SLG for my free-lance work. Every morning, when I start, I open the coning (take ETS+), during my lunch break I place the coning on "stand by," after lunch I relaunch it (take ETS+), at the end of the work day I close the coning and take one more dose ETS+. Is it necessary to open the coning during the work, or is it mostly needed for troubleshooting? Thank you.

Machaelle's Answer: There may be times where it'll be helpful for you to have your SLG coning open while you're working and time when it's not needed. The best approach is to ask nature if the coning should be open for a specific task. But definitely have the coning open for troubleshooting.

Iris's Question: Happy Equinox to all of you. Why can animals do the MBP solutions with a bit of food and humans can't? There are 4 of us who do the MBP in my household. One of these is a dog and she does her essences every night from a spoon with a smidgen of plain yogurt Each solution is done separately of course. I do the cat's in the bathroom where I can close the door. We have quite a hilarious dialogue during his forced essence time. His are done with a medicine applicator syringe. He takes his "neat" and will probably be very happy when the new preservative is being used on all the solutions. I am so very excited about the new solutions for canine & feline! Anyway, Thank you! How very blessed we all are to be a part of Perelandra!

Machaelle's Answer: You can place Solutions on a smidge of food to entice finicky animals because it's better that they get something than nothing. Oftentimes over a period of time they get used to it and you can stop putting it on food. They'll just take it. It's okay for animals and not humans to administer it this way because nature said so. There seems to be a difference between humans and animals. We do have nature-improved help for finicky people taking the MBP Balancing Solutions called The Perelandra Salad.

Liliya's Question: I am a nurse and I was wondering if there are hospitals or hospice agencies that actively use your essences on their patients. Thank you

Machaelle's Answer: In the U.S., the regulations for such institutions are very strict and the essences are used a lot, but it's "under the radar." Don't tell anybody I told you this! I understand they use flower essences as part of the normal regimen in hospitals in Israel.

Elise's Question: What would you recommend for a formerly healthy person who was felled by West Nile Virus? After 7 weeks in ICU, she just got off a ventilator, remains on feeding tube, allowed limited ice chips, and is slowly regaining mobility of arms and legs. Is it possible to administer surrogate essences (assuming she assents) -- esp since she's at a distant hospital?

Machaelle's Answer: The Perelandra products are not set up for long-distance work. Since you're not making daily visits to the hospital, unfortunately there isn't anything that we can suggest.

Liliya's Question: Hi! I've been using the flower essences. I noticed that I test positive for the same essence sometimes a few days in a row. I would like to know what it means for me. You said that you used you include the explanations of the essences with them but you don't do it anymore. I wonder where I could find them? Are they available to download maybe on your website?

Machaelle's Answer: You're testing for the same essences because you need them. You could add dosage and solution testing to your daily test that will cover how many days you need to take this combination, and you won't have to deal with the same bottles every day. You'll only need to take your solution as directed in your dosage test. Or you can just keep testing daily and take whatever tests positive and not worry about it. The only reason those are coming up because those are what you need. I am recommending that people not use the definitions when testing essences. It gets in the way. That's why the definitions are no longer available.

Jyoti's Question: Hi Machaelle, your book Behaving has been an inspiration to me. No question but a story. I love sitting on a large river rock. One day my gemstone necklace broke and I watched several beads fall into the fast flowing river. I gathered up all the beads I could. About 5 minutes later I stepped into the water and deep into the river my beads were sitting on a river rock about 15 beads. I gathered up the beads and got out of the river. I looked down again and thought I saw another bead and I reached for it. It was a heart shaped river stone, a powerstone with a lot of energy. Thank you Mother Nature

Machaelle's Answer: Good for you. Congratulations!

Lauren's Question: First - a deep thank you Machaelle, for your continued life-affirming work! My neighbor lives on and operates an organic farm just below my cabin. This year I plan to ask for permission to begin a small garden on her farm. She is in fall harvest overload so I have not approached her as yet. If I don't get permission before the Equinox, is there anything that I can do at the Equinox related to this yet-to-be-located garden to "connect it to nature’s infusion of the life vitality that initiates and triggers the new year’s cycle"? I think not...but wanted to double check. Again, I am so grateful that I have access to your work and products.

Machaelle's Answer: Well, my obvious question is this: If you're planning to ask her for permission to start a garden on her land and she's currently in "harvest overload," why don't you offer to help her with her harvesting? This may go a long way to getting the permission you would like. There's nothing you can do about the equinox occuring tomorrow except connect in personally. Good luck with this!

Amy's Question: First a Big Thank You for all your books, solutions, essences, and assistance! My question: when it comes to the triangle of health, vs the triangle of "maintaining" a chronic illness; does the new EB&S solution work with/in/towards the triangle of health - if they are currently triangulated with an illness? Or, is there no "interplay" in or with the triangle (i.e. I'm completely off the reservation with this question)? Thank you!

Machaelle's Answer: Okay, you get extra points for just being able to ask this question! My best advice is that you test whether you need EB&S and any of the other new Solutions. If they test positive, use them. Most likely, there will be some situations where EB&S will test positive and other situations where you won't need it at all.

Susan's Question: Machaelle, I'm truly in awe with what you have done in your work with nature. I really enjoy your workshops, the way you write and tell stories, and especially you sense of humor. Your way of sharing with us always helps me feel supported and inspired. Anyway, my life is now in transition. My thoughts have been on the solstice happening tomorrow and I feel strongly about doing something to help me get clear and have more support from nature for the coming cycles. Which of your books do think will give me the best guidance for doing a personal...DDP? if that's what I need to do. Thanks

Machaelle's Answer: You'll get your best information from the section in the new Workbook on the equinox and solstice. We have a link to this information on our web site that I'm including here. You don't need a DDP to prepare for a solstice or equinox. The Fall Equinox coming up tomorrow is like the new year and the start of the new cycle.

Liz's Question: What would you suggest for healing lyme? What would you suggest for healing Lyme disease? If you also want to make any comments on why lyme is such an issue and how others can avoid it that would be great. Thanks, Liz

Machaelle's Answer: This is one of those times when it's best for you to follow the anti-biotic protocol to get the Lyme bacteria under control quickly. And then work with the MBP Balancing Solutions to rebalance your bacterial colonies once you're through the antibiotic protocol (the protocol takes about 2 weeks, I think). Taking the MBP Immune and Lymphatic Solutions and the new Solutions: Bites & Stings and External Parasites will help you to avoid being bitten by a tick carrying Lyme Disease. In this case, prevention is the best medicine. But if you've got the infection don't screw around — see a doctor right away. Don't forget to take your Solutions even while you're taking the antibiotics, and take them twice daily during the time you are dealing with Lyme Disease and recovery.

Deanna's Question: I want to shift EoP to each stage of getting my newest book published. What do I do with the drops of EoP in the spoon after focusing on the book itself, and then shift EoP to each task as it arises? Swallow it or dispose of it? And, if the latter, where is the best place to put it?

Machaelle's Answer: Just dispose of it — wipe your spoon with a paper towel and just let the paper towel soak it up. Then you're cleaning your spoon AND disposing of the EoP drops at the same time. Good luck with your book!

Rose's Question: Please, just to clarify - if part of the disease process i.e. cancer is losing weight (and the disease is also hopefully being addressed), then the Weight Bal. Sol. will help to gain weight even with the disease. Correct understanding? Thanks.

Machaelle's Answer: Yes. But, while in this kind of situation, the Weight Balancing Solution can hold your weight so you stop losing it until after treatment, and then you'll gain weight back as you continue taking Weight Balancing.

Mildred's Question: What happens to your Cottage body if your Perelandra body is attacked?

Machaelle's Answer: My cottage body grabs a gun and shoots an etherial bullet back! But the real answer to the question is: Nothing happens. The Cottage body just waits it out. And to be honest, I'm not planning on being attacked.

Greg's Question: Love your products! I have a Staph infection that won't go away. Is there something else besides Immune, Lymph, and Integumentary I could take?

Machaelle's Answer: You can add EoP and see if that will help to strengthen your system and bring it into balance. Try this combination of MBP Balancing Solutions twice daily: Immune, Lymphatic, Digestive, Integumentary, Nervous and Urinary. Be sure to take these twice daily. Give it 3 or 4 weeks and if there's no change, give us a call on the Question Hot Line.

Mary's Question: Just some comments on your MBP Solutions: Digestive is great for stomach aches. I no longer can eat curry dishes due to my legs going into a painful spasm. When I take Muscular followed by ETS+, I am OK in minutes. Also, I had a bad rash on one of my wrists and finally got around to taking Integumentary 2X a day and it is now OK. It's all wonderful and thank you Machaelle.

Machaelle's Answer: Well, you're most welcome Mary. You may experience more long-term results if you take the Solutions as recommended (nightly before bed or twice daily), rather than just as needed. And I agree — definitely stop eating the curry!

Rhonda's Question: Hi Machaelle! Thank you so much for all your work! Currently using EoP, I am having trouble finding a statement that works for creating more income with my pottery business. I have tried the ones you listed for businesses and 'need to pay my bills on time,' and several of my own. Any suggestions?

Machaelle's Answer: I suggest you take your personal feelings about money and personal income to MAP. There may be blocks that you have towards this issue that need to be personally worked out.

Diane's Question: Three quick timing questions concerning taking Energy Balancing & Stabilizing & Weight Balancing solutions: 1. How long should I wait between taking each of the two solutions? 2. Should one be taken before the other? 3. How long should I wait after taking them to eat? 4. How long after eating should I wait before taking them? Thanks for formulating these two Solutions and for answering my basic questions!

Machaelle's Answer:
1. 5-10 seconds
2. Doesn't matter.
3. 15 minutes.
4. 15 minutes.
Thanks for asking your well-worded, concise and properly punctuated questions! I enjoyed answering them.

Vivian's Question: Do you have any suggestions of a protocol using your product for the fuzzy mind and blurred vision I get a few days before my menstrual cycle. I am 54 yrs of age.

Machaelle's Answer: You can take the MBP Immune, Lymphatic, Nervous, Endocrine and Repro-Female Solutions twice daily to strengthen those systems. But I'll tell you a secret about this — if you want your eye-sight and fuzzy mind to improve, get more sleep every night. You'd be surprised how much that'll do for these two things.

Karen's Question: Carpenter bees and ants and woodchucks are causing much physical damage to my home and under my home. I need immediate and effective help.

Machaelle's Answer: Karen, you need a conversation with this. So I'm going to have to send you to Jeannette on the Question Line (1-540-937-3679) so that you can talk this out and come up with an easy, immediate and effective direction.

Cynthia's Question: Hi Machaelle, when taking the MBP at night and the New solutions which I take in the morning and afternoon, can I take them back to back or do I need to wait a couple of minutes between each one.

Machaelle's Answer: If you take the new Solutions later in the morning and earlier in the evening, then you don't need to worry about this. You need to have finished taking your new Solutions at least 15 minutes before you take your MBP Solutions at night. (When taking the new Solutions and when taking the MBP Solutions, you need only wait about 5-10 seconds between each.)

Joy's Question: I am a Special Ed teacher in a high school. I have the back corner area of a nice classroom as my space for my office/teacher needs. Can I shift EoP into that defined area where no students are allowed? I do not own this space. I have been assigned this space for the last 3 years and will continue working in this space into the future. In addition, are there any process I can use in the classroom as a whole? Thank you.

Machaelle's Answer: Yes, you can shift EoP into your defined office space. Because the classroom is yours, you can shift EoP, essences and/or ETS Plus for Soil-less Gardens into the classroom, thus making it available to your students in a gentle, non-intrusive way. You're not shifting anything directly to any students. But you do have the right to "clean the air" so that they have "clean air to breathe." I suggest that you do a soil-less garden troubleshooting on your classroom to find out what mix needs to be added to your atmosphere.

M.J.'s Question: Flooding in Colorado is major. 1) Any suggestion for keeping your human body healthy during this major storm. 2) Mold may become an issue as we dry out.

Machaelle's Answer: Okay, you have a serious challenge. I recommend that you take all of the MBP Balancing Solutions twice daily. Add to that Human External and Internal Parasites Solutions. This should give you a strong base. If you start to feel sick, then I suggest you include testing essences for how you're feeling (your symptoms). I've just suggested an awful lot of bottles to you and I want to remind you that because you're in a disaster situation, you qualify for a discount on these items. When you call our Order Line, let them know that you qualify for the Perelandra Responds discount and they'll help you with the order.
Keep in mind that our thoughts are with you.

Kristina's Question: Hi Machaelle and all, This was my first year with the Garden Workbook in my garden. I had some great successes and some head-scratching too; like where did those tomato worms disappear too? LOL Q: For the fall equinox tomorrow I want to add my personal life cycle to the solstice/equinox rhythm (pg. 39 in the workbook) but do I make a new DDP for the new year? My first one is dated 1-9-13; or do I wait until January to make a new one? Thanks so much. Kristina

Machaelle's Answer: To add your personal life cycle during an equinox does not require a DDP. In fact, it works better if you don't superimpose another DDP. Waiting until January for adding a DDP is fine.

Margaret's Question: My Shih Tzu who has just turned 15 yrs. is having some bladder problems having to do bathroom duties every couple hours and if I do not check him on time, does it in the house, which flower essence can I use to help him. Thanks

Machaelle's Answer: I can't answer that question because you're going to have to test to find out which essence he needs. The essences he requires are most likely different from the essences required by another Shih Tzu in the same condition. This is why you need to test. You can add the MBP Balancing Solutions for Immune, Lymphatic and Urinary to his daily regimen. But then again, he just may be old.

Eric's Question: I have a Soil-less Garden going for my work and I have had mild success but was wondering if there is something more to add to the process to get better results. I have simplified and shortened my DDP and I stabilize and balance often. I have long conversations and thank my team for all the success. I have had several SG successes over the years so it's not my first rodeo. Any hints or suggestions would be great.

Machaelle's Answer: From what you're saying it seems pretty obvious to me that something is blocking your soil-less garden. I encourage you to call Jeannette today on the Question Hot Line so that together you can figure out where the block is, or at least how to find it! If you can't call the Question Line today, call Wednesday. I have the feeling that between the two of you, you'll find the glitch.

Kathy 's Question: Hello Machaelle & Pere-team, I have a 10 year old indoor-outdoor male cat who just got diagnosed with ringworm -- poor guy is very itchy and has lots of lesions. (Somewhat surprising to me as he has always been very healthy.) He was given an anti-fungal pill for the last two weeks which helped only a little, and it's now been changed to a new anti-fungal pill. I am also giving him drops of Immune, Lymphatic, and F-1. Any other suggestions? (please?) Thank you - and love sent your way - Kathy

Machaelle's Answer: Hang on Kathy! Continue what you're doing and in two or three weeks we'll be coming out with Feline Internal and External Parasites Solutions that you can switch your cat to at that point. Don't bother giving F-1, but instead along with the Immune and Lymphatic Solutions, give him Integumentary.

Rose's Question: Are the weight & energy bal. solutions just for generally 'healthy' people or can they be helpful for someone underweight from being in a disease process who wants to gain weight?

Machaelle's Answer: It's Weight Balancing. This means that if you're underweight and you need to gain weight, it will adjust you systems so that you can gain the right amount of weight. If you're overweight and you need to lose weight, it adjusts your systems so that you can lose weight. If you are at your "ideal" weight level, it will help support you to maintain that level.

Karen's Question: A silly question, I'm sure, but I've often wondered when the bottle says take seven drops and you accidentally take 8 or 9 drops in the microbial balancing Solution, do the extra drops mess up the overall ability of the body to balance in that area, or is it just that I've wasted the extra drops of the essence, and needlessly use up more than i need? So how important is it to get exactly the right number of drops? Thanks, karen

Machaelle's Answer: It's vitally important that you not go under the recommended number of drops. But it doesn't matter if you go over. As you've suggested, you're just wasting your drops.

Lawrie's Question: Would you explain the difference between the new human energy balancing solution and EOP, I realize you can use EOP to balance different environments, but as far as balancing ourselves, what is the difference?

Machaelle's Answer: EoP is an all-purpose "umbrella" balancing solution. EB&S focuses on all of the elements that support your energy level. EB&S has a more defined focus. And therefore is more effective than EoP when it comes specifically to energy levels (energy meaning "vitality").

Rose's Question: In taking the new solutions - recommended to take one dose morning, one afternoon. If I forget in the morning, would it work ok to take one early afternoon i.e. 12:30 or 1:00, and one late after-noon/evening? Maybe understanding the reasoning behind the timing would help me remember better.

Machaelle's Answer: Try it and see how you feel. I really can't say if this is going to work for you.

Michelle G.'s Question: No question but A heartfelt thank you for your work! After 20 yrs of doing the Perelandra processes I find that the more balance I hold within myself, the greater balance I can co-create with nature. I am learning the difference between working from an authentic desire to co-create balance vs. working with nature to try to control things (however subtle this might be). And through it all to be kind to myself and have a good sense of humor!

Machaelle's Answer: Wow! What does one say with this?! Except: A heart-felt "Thank You!" back. It sounds like you're doing everything right and all I have to do is just pat you on the back and say, "Just keep moving!"
