Soil-less Gardens
WALKING THE TWISTY LINE
by Dianne Frothingham

In March of this year, I began working as office manager for two family businesses. One centers on tree care and ornamental horticulture. The other, a newer business, involves organic lawn care and a bio-sustainable fertility management program for agriculture. My husband did not have time to add the Perelandra processes to what he was already doing in the business, but he gave me carte blanche to integrate them in treatments and programs.

We live in a conservative agricultural area where the predominant consciousness is oriented to chemical companies' "solutions" for insect and disease problems. Explaining the Perelandra approach to our customers was time-prohibitive. My husband was concerned about alienating them with concepts and procedures outside their ken. We were also concerned about intervening, however benignly, in someone else's environment without permission.

Here's what I've been doing. First I connected with the customer's Higher Self and asked whether the company had permission to use Perelandra processes in the care of his trees, lawn, whatever.* About 92% of the time, I got a "yes." When we did have permission, I connected with the deva of the property and Pan to find out what was appropriate.

In every case, I did a Geopathic Zone Balancing, Energy Cleansing with Soil Balancing and Stabilization, and another Soil Balancing and Stabilization after our work. In many cases, I have also done Atmospheric Balancing. [Workbook II] I work in the office and rarely visit a job site. When I do not have a sketch of the property to work from, I found that if I concentrated steadily on the info I did have (e.g., "residential property of Jane Doe at 12 Oak Lane"), the Nature half of my team would manage the precise details of what area was being addressed. The house and outbuildings were not included in these processes. If we were to work on just a portion of the landscape, then the processes would be limited to those areas. In each case, I would ask the team when the processes were to be done, and get a schedule. The processes are limited to the specific job or the growing season in the case of successive lawn and agricultural fertilizations.

We have not completely eliminated insecticides. My husband has had to do a lot of talking to even barely convince customers that dandelions do not have to be herbicided. We are trying to walk the twisty line between the average customer's quick-fix demand to "get rid of them" (dandelions, bugs in their trees, moles, you name it), keeping the customers with us while we all go through the necessary re-education, and making enough money to stay in business and prosper. I cannot point to definitive, positive results yet. But I feel a great gladness when I do the processes. I believe that in a few years a new balance will have been created and we will be seeing healthier trees, lawns, and soil.

* Editor's Note: It is not necessary to connect with the higher self of a customer for permission to use the Perelandra processes as long as the processes are a clear part of your business. This does not mean that you must advertise them as part of the business. It means that the landscaper, in this example, has consciously incorporated the processes in his/her practice. The processes are as much a part Walking . . . of his or her approach as what equipment is used. When someone contracts the landscaper for work, it is implied in the contract that the owner is giving permission to the landscaper to accomplish the agreed upon work utilizing all the skills this particular landscaper has. In this case, that would include the Perelandra processes.

Except when working medically with someone who is unconscious or with a small child, I do not encourage people to connect with another's higher self unless that person has given conscious permission for us to do so.

Kinesiology and nature throw us into a whole new level of interaction and we need to think about the appropriate considerations and ethics as different situations come up. Dianne is clearly seeking to work ethically here and she is an example of someone who is thinking about appropriate considerations. I am suggesting that there's another way to look at this situation that incorporates permission the owner has already implied in his contract for the work, whether the contract is written or verbal.
