I realized that I only have two Saturdays left where I’m not scheduled to work, so I took off and went on a little field trip. Ten miles west is De Soto, KS. Kill Creek Farm is a historic farmstead.
I looked at a couple dozen artist booths where most of the art was heavily focused on sunflowers. Then I wandered through the fields of sunflowers. Even though sunflowers aren’t my favorite flower, I got some.
There was a Metaphysical Fair going on. I haven’t been to one of those for many years, so I decided to look around and see whether people were promoting any art.
I didn’t take photos because I was too shy to ask people if I could take pictures of their booths, but you can tell from the literature what was there. There were plenty of the usual psychic readers, but I was surprised that there were a lot of booths run by people who were just distributors of alternative health products.
There were two people that I enjoyed meeting. One was a woman selling “bio-energetic revitalizers.” She made beautiful glass pendants with dichroic glass which she then treated with four separate types of frequency generators… she mentioned Tesla and Rife… can’t recall the others. She did muscle testing on me (applied kinesiology) and showed me the weakness that appeared when I was holding my cell phone, and how it was removed when I was holding my cell phone with her pendant. She told me several stories about how using them had helped her through difficult situations and health issues. I was tempted to buy one, but they were $50 each and I wasn’t comfortable making a snap decision to spend $50. Since their main benefit is protection from electro-magnetic frequencies, that might be something really helpful, although I’m not sure the evidence is in about the harmful effects of the EMFs. They were just gorgeous, though!
I also met a gentleman who didn’t have anything for his “booth” except for a card table, a couple of books, and some flyers:
He had a book on his table about Quantum Touch, which is a technique I use with Reiki. Since I’ve never actually met anyone else who uses it, so I asked him about it. He said he just picked up the book because it resonated with what he does intuitively, and doesn’t consider himself a QT practitioner. He offered me a healing session of my arm for free, so I took him up on it. I will let you know if there is any significant change. I liked his attitude because he was very down to earth and offered to help even though I couldn’t pay him for a formal session. He said he knew I would pass on the favor to someone else, so I will gladly do that.
There were lots of other therapies being promoted, but he was the only one giving any free treatments. There were plenty of booths selling stones and promoting their uses, but none of the stones resonated with me. I was surprised to see how much more expensive crystals have gotten over the years. Someone was selling magnet therapy braces, but they didn’t have a product to wear over the wrist, so I was saved from thinking I needed to invest in one, even though I’ve known people who were greatly helped by using them.
All in all, I learned a few things and I thought the $5 admission was worth it.
I did wonder how many of the products being sold were from China. I saw this on the drive home:
Oh, one more thing. I just can’t resist including a couple photos of a drawing I worked on this week. I remembered that I had a new package of glaze pens, and I’ve been going back over many of the drawings I thought were finished and adding a few extra touches. This one is a couple of inches square:
