Nuclear Fallout Survival Guide ~ Quick Guide to Preventative Action

Welcome to a brief overview of a nuclear disaster. Following Fukushima and Chernobyl it seemed fitting to write something that may affect us yet again in our life times.

Look at the picture below to see how it affected the entirety of Europe.

It affected the entirety of Europe to some degree

Hard to believe that nuclear weapons exist, seems like only a fool would consider having them. But the thing is the most damage has come from nuclear meltdowns of power plants. A nuclear fallout from a bomb on the other hand… well we cannot imagine how much worse that would be. The fact that these industrial plants can contaminate an entire continent is ridiculous. How selfish are people? How greedy must they be to put the entire planet at risk for some money? Delusional people. That is why the recent war in Ukraine with Russia is proving so frightening, not the possibility of nuclear attack but of indirect nuclear fallout or meltdown should a plant be bombed.

Can they put the reactor into cooldown before it’s too late? They have time to do it should they need to, or maybe not. Failure to put it into cooldown means meltdown.

The reason I put the above is because I was thinking of the worst possibility, total destruction of developed nations resulting in a post apocalyptic nightmare. We’d literally be paying cheap to be famous, and those in power would do so for a very small amount of money. Simply because leadership would be useless so the demand would be low and everything dirt cheap. Provided that leadership is still required to some degree, if it isn’t then there wouldn’t be much need for currency. Things like metals and foods could become the new currency.

Meltdown is no joke. When the radiation from Fukushima began to spill out in 2011 – which by the way was only 11 years ago, and at the time I heard nothing about it; I am not kidding – it resulted in widespread evacuation from the area. The radiation spilled into the continent and affected millions. Maybe I did hear about it but forget, whatever happened it caused a lot of problems which officials are not concerned about. If they were concerned they’d be telling us to this day about the dangers of it.

I guess there is an element of conspiracy here. Did the incidence happen? And… are nuclear meltdowns really dangerous? You might be wondering why I ask this. The simple fact that it is only the people closest to the incident that are affected and we don’t hear about the others further afield, or the long term effects like cancer. Most plants are designed to absorb radiation in the beds under the reactors, meaning should a leak occur which it did, the radiation would be swallowed up in large quantities. I am not doubting the dangers, I am saying that I believe some of them are hyped up to scare us.

Apparently Chernobyl is a restricted area. Did you know people still live there? They are healthy. The environment is healthy looking and clean. Obviously if you get close to the reactor site you will find radiation readings, but still low readings in the fairly close surrounding area… The site is also covered now, and nobody can go near it. The site is guarded, and people work there. Russians are currently keeping people working their under duress, but I fail to see how that is duress considering they worked there before the invasion. My point is that there is no need to worry, the workers are doing a vital job I suspect.

I need to talk about preventative action. If and when the radiation spills into Europe you would be wise to take into consideration anything that would decontaminate foods and waters. You might be best to avoid products like fruit and veg should it occur. Anything that grows from soils.

Your body will likely sustain a damage if the radiation is severe, and if it is the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant which it could very well be, since Russians have already damaged some of the electrical units and monitoring equipment, then we are in trouble.

The largest nuclear power plant in Europe, the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, is located in Ukraine. In 2006, the government planned to build 11 new reactors by the year 2030 – Wikipedia

It already has 6 reactors, and a leak from them will be devastating to Europe and I suspect beyond. 11 reactors by 2030 is not good either, because it’s completely opposite of clean energy. It it not good for the environment! You cannot simply throw away radiated reactors when the fuel runs out. They need cooling for ages and then storing for something like 2 years. My advice to simply get rid of them and use something else less dangerous. Coal power stations or electrical stations, wind power, sea power… anything.

So have a look at medicines like potassium iodate (thyroid blocking agent, and is used for example after a nuclear accident. taking up radioactive iodine, which may be released into the environment following a nuclear accident). This would help possible prevent radiation getting into your thyroid and causing cancer later on.

Another supplement is definitely activated charcoal – they use this on the beds of reactors to assist in the absorption of radiation. (lowering radiation exposure from radionuclides by removing them from drinking water. Activated charcoal taken internally can bind radionuclides in the GI tract form ingested food and unfiltered water, and carry them all safely out of the body.)

If you already use a filtered water container then great! I do too although I haven’t always done this.

Nascent iodine – Nascent iodine is more expensive than potassium iodide, but it is more palatable and high dosages of it can be given to even children. Experts recommend that iodine should be used to saturate the thyroid as this would make it strong enough to reject radioactive elements from entering the body. Before deciding on the dosage, it’s still recommended to consult a doctor. 

Magnesium – encourages removal of heavy metals from the body. So therefore the radiation won’t have much to latch onto.

Spirulina – can be found in many products and supplements. I have some but rarely take it as it can make me feel a bit sick. You might have better luck with it.

If the spill of nuclear radiation is severe you might want to wash yourself and clothes quickly. Maintain health by washing with filtered clean water. You can’t avoid it in foods but you can buy foods less contaminated.

Sorry there isn’t more to say. I guess protecting the body is more important should it happen. It is a possibility. But the risk is still low. I’m not concerned and neither should you be. To cause such a meltdown in such a big power plant would risk the entirety of Europe and the easts health and safety, it would compromise many things and especially the economy which leaders would not be keen on.

Don’t think I am trying to scare you either. This is no Cold War or post World War 2 communist Stalin propaganda. Anyway have a lovely day!

What is SEO?

When you see the letters SEO you should automatically know what it means, especially if you are a website owner. What does it stand for? SEO stands for search engine optimisation and is easily the biggest tool, yes, the biggest in the arsenal of web development in terms of improving traffic to your site.

I am referring to something called unpaid traffic or natural or organic traffic, which is what SEO targets. It allows a site to use SEO to improve traffic to the site, which can be beneficial for a business for example. Targeting select internet users and more importantly, knowing who you want to attract can in turn result in more customers or users of your site.

Feng Shui – What is this ancient practice?

Welcome to Psychedelic Wizards blog and todays post about the art of Feng Shui. If you like what you read then please like, comment and follow the site for more interesting posts on a variety of topics.


The most ancient of practices that is Feng Shui – meaning wind-water – is the Chinese philosophy detailing how to create balance and harmony between the elements. This practice is used within the home, because it is a belief system that specific placement of objects in a space will greatly affect the energy and the flow and the harmony of our surroundings.

At the core, it is decorating to maximise the energy of a space, to make it more positive and minimise or eradicate negative energy build up. So what are the potential effects, or benefits of such a practice? As mentioned, the idea is to harmonise the energy so that a space is more positive, surely a huge benefit to anybody! Having a lighter energy home, feeling less cluttered and more vibrant would also make you feel mentally better, uplifting your mood, improving your mindset, helping you to achieve those goals, and possibly to sleep better too.

In Feng Shui there are the main ‘principles’. That of the ‘Commanding Position’, ‘the Bagua‘, and the ‘Five Elements‘. Using these principles together is the aim to create harmony.

Lets start with the Commanding Position. This is going to be the best way to place furniture within a room. Use this and apply it to all the main objects in a space, like the sofas in your living room, or the tv and stand, or the shelving units. Use it in bedrooms, by moving the bed to the further point from the doorway. Move your office at home around, or your desk, adjust the placement to furthest from the door, yet still facing the door. Being in the furthest point, yet facing it, is commanding a room.

Then you have the Bagua. This is an energy map identifying the elements you should place within the room to facilitate the flow of positive energy. Different areas are dealt with, like work and home and personal goals.

As you can see different colours and elements relate to different areas. Health and family for example, are green and blues, with wood as the element. If you don’t want to use all of the above, simply use a select few, or one or two. Trying something shouldn’t be a burden. When setting out the room look at the map and then focus on one room at a time and make sure you are clear what you want to bring to the room. If you wanted your bedroom with a focus on relationships you could use reds, white and pinks. Beds need to face the doorway, but not in direct line with it. Symmetry is important, so using flat and square shaped objects can help, along with flat objects.

Finally we have the Five Elements. They are: fire, water, wood, metal and earth. Feng Shui seeks to balance these elements in your home.

Each element is associated with different colours, seasons and shapes as seen in the picture above. Fire – red and triangular. Water – black and curved shapes. Wood – green/blue and rectangular columned shapes. Metal – white and circular/sphere shapes. Earth – brown/orange/yellow and flat and square objects.

If you want to add each element to a room you can start by using the colour or the shapes. You could light a white candle for example. Using more plants will help too. Being able to successfully place objects is key, and you need space to work with, so make sure to remove anything not needed and get rid of clutter and clear the doors. Big plants at the entrance can help. The entrance hallway is important to, or any hallway, try and keep it clear and bright. Plants are positive energy and connecting to the earth, so bring some big plants, or small ones into your home and keep everything fresh. They have the added benefit of literally purifying the air.

You have now learned a little about Feng Shui. Thanks for reading, how will you better use your space?
