For the purpose and structure of Akashic, here are how we’d phrase them as they aren’t clairvoyant questions.
 

Show us what is the true nature in regards to its origin. 
 

Show us what its purpose is for in relation to why it exists suddenly.

 

Show us how man played a role in the creation of covid-19 [N.B.: it’s open-ended because it allows more room for understanding rather than what we see in our level of existence].
 

Show us the geographic origin of nCoViD-19.

 

Show us the geopolitical purpose of nCoV-19 if any. Show us its spiritual purpose.

Sounds great, let's go with those then!!

I wonder if people accustomed to toilet paper will resort to doing what some cultures do instead, which is using their left hand and a bucket of water...

Surprised, but not really, that no one has recommended growing and using mullein yet.

Its velvety leaves can be used as buttwipes...and it is a very potent lung herb - and so would very conceivably help fight Covid-19 infections.  That's 2 corona birds with 1 stone, here!!!

Quote

A tasteless light smoke, Mullein is revered as a highly medicinal herb that cleanses lung infections and inflammation. It's an expectorant, meaning that it helps in breaking up respiratory congestion and promotes productive coughing. Since Mullein has no flavor, it makes a great base for an herbal smoking blend. Mullein that is too dry won't smoke smoothly, so add a little moisture and rub the leaves together for the best result.

And it's also a tough pioneer plant that grows like a weed anywhere.  So, it's very easy to grow.  In fact, it's often invasive, so you should try to contain it if you do decide to grow it.  (Normally, I would never entertain the idea of planting invasives...but this one has so many beneficial properties I can make something of an exception.)

Might be tough to procure here as my area now has additional lockdown measures starting today given that the virus is now at 140 people nationwide in barely a short stretch of time since the last tally. The only things open will be the grocery in limited capacity with few people allowed in, banks, and pharmacies. 

 

And if procuring it if it's indigenous here, my condo might need a few extra pots to handle growing it. 

 

Are you with a good stock of these to use yourself? Most people here are just going to use their left hand and a bucket of water, but we are approaching summer and the inevitable drought from climate change affecting the usual rain patterns....

^ It's actually native to Asia...although I'm not sure about the PI?

I'm already stocked on TP, but this has been on my wishlist to grow just because of how useful and medicinal it is.

Quote

Mullein is a soothing relaxant for irritable respiratory conditions and is a pectoral demulcent which means it is an anti-irritant herb rich in mucilage that is soothing, lubricating and offers protection to inflamed or irritable mucous surfaces. It promotes healing, helps reduce cough severity, ease expectoration and clear the lungs. Mullein is also a mild sedative and mild antispasmodic.

It may be used for asthma, whooping cough, emphysema, hay fever, pleurisy, bronchitis, tonsillitis, influenza, respiratory and sinus congestion, urinary tract infections, nervous tension and insomnia. 

External use for earache (flowers in olive oil), sores, wounds, boils, rheumatic pain and hemorrhoids.

Mullein combines well with Horehound, Lobelia and Coltsfoot for bronchitis.

You can typically ingest it as a tea or smoke/smudge it...  The latter is probably the best for lung healing.

If it's native here, I probably would need to know the local name, and it may be more recognized in the areas with regional dialects. Might be harder to find seeds online or to ask at the market from the farmers since those are all now closed and no one can come in from the provinces.... :(

I recently contacted my local dr of Chinese medicine, and her reply included this link.  Really interesting and makes sense: this started in China, so they’ve been aggressively researching and treating with Chinese herbs.  I seriously encourage people to establish communication with your local (and hopefully competent; it’s a varied field) doctor of Chinese medicine.  During normal times, *If* you are healthy, experimenting with Chinese herbs can be fun/helpful, maybe only mildly dangerous.  When you get sick, it becomes a VERY different situation and getting the RIGHT formula (NOT the wrong one) becomes critical.

 

This link is especially interesting:

Ok.  This going going to be long.  But it’s just a small bit of the info we’ve compiled.  We also have a prevention formula for patients. We are available for phone  or video consults for anyone who is sick.  Covid-19 or not.  No one who is sick is allowed in the clinic right now.  We’re only doing herb formulas for that. No acupuncture.

History and experience prove that Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective against epidemic diseases.
From the Western Han Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty, at least 321 large-scale plagues occurred in China. Chinese medicine has served to wage life-and-death battles against various plague consistently through time and has successfully contained the spread of epidemics in a limited area and time. There has never been a similar tragedy in China's history, such as the Spanish flu or the Black Death in Europe. These are examples of global plagues that killed tens of millions of people.
In the Chinese history, whenever a plague is rampant, Chinese medicine practitioners are always on the front lines to battle the disease. Many survived with the help of Chinese Medicine; so in this fight with the insidious and novel Coronavirus, Chinese Medicine once again should take a primary role in effective treatment and must not be absent in action!

Dunno the local PI name, but Common Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) seems to be either Jia Yan Ye or 毛蕊花 in TCM?

 

And the more I read about it, the more of a miracle medicinal herb it seems to be!  I dunno if they ship there, but I just ordered some seeds here.

Like, it even fvcking magically adjusts subluxed bones back into place!!!

Quote

herbalists around the world have been using mullein to set bones with great success.
“Jim introduced the mullein root for setting bones of the spine. He noticed that it grows up so straight the second year, so it must have a lot of straight energy” Wood said. “This makes a lot of sense. Mullein looks like a spine.”
“He had her come back the next day and get another x-ray for free and, presto, the bone was back in place,” Wood said. “He had his proof. He got to prove magic was real.”

And its flowers can also be used for bright yellow or green dyes!

Fresh air and sunlight

 

https://medium.com/@ra.hobday/coronavirus-and-the-sun-a-lesson-from-the-1918-influenza-pandemic-509151dc8065

 

"Put simply, medics found that severely ill flu patients nursed outdoors recovered better than those treated indoors. A combination of fresh air and sunlight seems to have prevented deaths among patients; and infections among medical staff.[1] There is scientific support for this. Research shows that outdoor air is a natural disinfectant. Fresh air can kill the flu virus and other harmful germs. Equally, sunlight is germicidal and there is now evidence it can kill the flu virus."

 

I worked many years in a public hospital . Sometimes patients developed nasty infections that where meds resistant .

 

The first time this happened, I was gobsmacked  - a nurse asked me to help her move a patient in a bed , with such an infection, out onto the verandah  in the sunlight .  After, when I asked why  , she told me that when this happens, they treat them with fresh air , sunlight and bath the wound in sterile salty water .

It seems that emergencies require very specific supplies.

For Corona, buy eggs and TP , for hurricanes, get tarps n pop-tarts. 

Nuclear war requires desks to hide beneath. And for nerve gas attacks we duct tape. 

But..

What do we need for earthquakes? Fire extinguishers ?

Dark Humor aside,.. 

Yesterday,I didn't have a lunch packed. And when that time rolled around , I momentarily considered my regular fast food establishment. 

Should I still eat there? With this Corona thing going around? What if they sneezed all over my burger? 

And it occurred to me ,that there was a chance of this LAST year, and the year before that, and so on, stretching back to my birthday , and through past lives I don't even know about. And I was comforted, because they ALREADY try not to sneeze on our food. 

There has ALWAYS been ,  such threats, and OTHER kinds. 

EVERY day ,we get up, and negotiate hazards just as bad as Corona, and of the same sort.

I wanted to share this deep insight, ;) Which no one else has thought of.

I'm already stocked on TP, but this has been on my wishlist to grow just because of how useful and medicinal it is.

You can typically ingest it as a tea or smoke/smudge it...  The latter is probably the best for lung healing.

Short-signted still—they still allowed Chinese planes in if they weren’t from Wuhan for a couple days before it got worse. Then they were super slow because Duterte was trying not to piss off Xi.

Just a quick note:

 

I found that several small spray bottles of rubbing alcohol are very effective in sanitizing:

 

It is not necessary to open a container of wipes (and dispose of the wipe)

 

One spray on one hand is more than enough for both hands

 

Can easily carry in pockets

 

Fine mist can clean keys and fobs and phones and door knobs and steering wheels and shift knobs - can be purchased super small or as large as you want.

Just be sure that the alcohol content is higher than 60% but lower than 85% otherwise it will do next to nothing

In England it is called surgical alcohol
