Something Different – Poison

I was recently sent an email from Avaaz about the decline in Britain’s barn owl population – http://www.avaaz.org/save_britains_barn_owls This apparently is due to the use of rat poison on farms around the country. I signed the petition and added my thoughts in the small comment box. I thought I would share my thoughts here.

If you don’t want a plethora of rats and mice around then barn owls eat rats so we don’t need poison. We need more barn owls. Rat poison is barbaric. Not only does it kill rats but it also builds up in the system of other animals that eat the dead or dying rats. This is why it’s killing off the barn owls. The rest of the owl species are also suffering, as are other birds of prey. This cycle will continue as the poisons build up in the next in the food chain and in the soil until, ultimately, it will reach us.

This is not just a problem with rat poison but with all pesticides used in the garden and farm lands. They all should be banned. We are currently noticing a decline in garden birds – check the use of pesticides on slugs and insects that people use without thought in their garden. The dead slugs and insects are being eaten by our common garden birds – sparrows, starlings, thrushes, blackbirds, etc. Carrion birds such as magpies and crows are flourishing – they are eating the dead garden birds. In the next few years we will see a decrease in these carrion eaters as the poisons slowly build up in their systems. Poisons that cannot be digested.

These poisons are putting money in big company pockets, and they use fear tactics to get people to buy them. They frequently tell us about the diseases we can get from rats and mice. But how many diseases do we get from other humans? The number is in the hundreds and many of them are deadly. These companies have also tried to blame cats for the decline in the garden bird population. This is nonsense. Cats have always caught birds, right through the centuries. But all of a sudden they are on some kind of genocide mission?

Rats especially eat the rubbish that humans discard. They clean up after us. If we were cleaner and more concerned about our environment the rat and mice population would not be flourishing. How often do we see people throwing litter on the streets? It’s a common occurrence. If we didn’t do it we wouldn’t need the rats to clean it up. They would naturally die off. Here’s a question I like asking people – Who is the vermin? Is it the one who drops the rubbish or the one that cleans it up?

Come on people think for yourselves – birds eat the things we don’t want around. We need more birds not more poisons. Poisons should be banned.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer. EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc. I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example. Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover. The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant. I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings. Please note: Tarot and astrology is for guidance only. The reading or report will not make decisions for you and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice.
