Create A Death Box


If you are over 75 and live alone with no living family you might want to create a Death Box to make everything run smoothly according to your wishes after death. Things can become a little complicated without clear directives. It should be very helpful for dear friends to have easily accessible NECESSARY forms and other instructions and messages. This is particularly true if you’re alone at the time of death.

I created a Death Box containing separate envelopes filled with various forms and relevant lists and messages regarding my dogs and basically whatever comes to mind in this arena. Currently the envelopes are addressed as follows:
Last Will
Health Care Directive: Do Not Resuscitate
Regarding Dogs
Funeral Home Info
Power of Attorney
List of Personal Effects
Taos Property Info
Cancel Insurance Policies
Envelopes addressed to closest friends

All of these items are contained in a shoe box appropriately labeled and decorated as seen in above photo. Close friends know of the box and its location.

Regarding end of life preparations I’m impressed by the work of interfaith minister Susan Varon who conducts the local Death Cafe meetings in Taos. The next meeting is March 1, 2:00 at Golden Willow, 412 Sipapu Street (at the Golden Willow facing Sipapu not Salazar). Be there at least 10 minutes early because the doors close promptly at 2:00.

Email Susan at and put your name on her mailing list to be notified of future Death Cafe meetings AND to receive the super-helpful information she sends out such as “A Check List for Dealing with End of Life Issues” and “How to Take Control of the End of Your Life” by Katy Butler. Katy’s book “The Art of Dying Well” is available at the Taos Library and I look forward to reading it.

Cell Phones as Scary Brain Fryers

It’s a hideous development in the consciousness of humanity – with the scariest aspect of the smart phone/wireless phenomenon being our movement into the shadow world – which is a scientific fact: electrons are shredded from our cells (oxidation) by electromagnetic radiation – diminishing our personal light(aura), creating disease and anti-social behaviors.

Looking for electromagnetic frequencies circling my universe, I was fortunate to have a friend with an Accoustimeter which he used to determine electromagnetic frequencies in my house. It was an alarming experience for one trying to avoid the deadly emf for many years. (see Microwave Grid at, written in 2010)

The Accoustimeter is quite impressive as you will learn by googling the device. It’s expensive but can be rented for 3+ days. It’s extremely user friendly with a detailed visual display and outstanding audio effects.

Strange sounds emanated from the device – a kind of background squabble indicating the ambient frequency. Strange for a home that had no cell phone and the wireless turned off. When the wireless was turned on the indicators turned red and moved into the danger level where connective tissue is affected. I was indeed shocked. I turned off the wireless and the meter returned to a more normal range.

At which point my friend demonstrated his Apple Smart Phone via the Accoustimeter. The indicators turned a throbbing red and went into the top register indicating extreme physical danger. The sounds made were truly scary: super loud squawking in various rhythmic configurations.

Years ago I had a dect phone; it was very convenient. The data on that device was shocking and I got rid of it after extensive research. Recently close friends finally got rid of their dect phone after learning it was probably responsible for crippling physical problems.

Pet lovers should note that a recent 7 hour, online seminar on Pet Cancer warns emf can be a powerful adversary to healing and maintaining good health. It seems obvious this would be true.

Dangers of cell-phone technologies has been known for decades yet folks can’t get the message. For example: ran into a friend in grocery store walking around with her smart phone turned on and resting next to her hip. I asked why it was turned on and she said she lived alone and needed the phone when in the stable at night, in case she has an accident. I replied “But you aren’t in the stable now.”

It was a surprising experience since she had read the current The Nation cover article: How Big Wireless Made Us Think That Cell Phones are Safe: A Special Investigation by Mark Hertgaard and Mark Dowie which includes the following quote.
“The scientific evidence that cell phones and wireless technologies in general can cause cancer and genetic damage is not definitive, but it is abundant and has been increasing over time. Contrary to the impression that most news coverage has given the public, 90 percent of the 200 existing studies included in the National Institutes of Health’s PubMed database on the oxidative effects of wireless radiation—its tendency to cause cells to shed electrons, which can lead to cancer and other diseases—have found a significant impact, according to a survey of the scientific literature conducted by Henry Lai. Seventy-two percent of neurological studies and 64 percent of DNA studies have also found effects.”

And now we learn more details of future plans for 5G across America. According to The Nation: “Because 5G radiation can only travel short distances, antennas roughly the size of a pizza box will have to be installed approximately every 250 feet to ensure connectivity. “Industry is going to need hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of new antenna sites in the United States alone,” said Moskowitz, the UC Berkeley researcher. “So people will be bathed in a smog of radiation 24/7.”
