The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

Ear candles for wax or wonder?

Leave a comment

Once, Mr Furlong and I went to a  Mind, Body and Spirit  convention in The Yorkshire Dales.

There, Indian/Hopi Ear Candles were being sold –  Quote – “to remove ear wax”!

This a modern healer’s myth – science does not support the ear wax claim. But science cannot intrude into the travels of our own minds.

Ear Candles are used to precipitate a spiritual or relaxing experience – not to remove ear wax.

They can be dangerous. Read the instructions! Meditation is safer I think.

The way to use Ear Candles is to select a loving, caring person to help you whilst lying in a safe, comfortable place. The person you trust guards you while the candle smolders. Once you are safe, they leave you alone to enter your  own inner place, to wander around your own mind.

The experience can be a really sacred, relaxing and loving  time.

Ear wax? My foot!

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
