In ancient times the cone process was used in India, China, Tibet, Sumeria, Egypt, Atlantis, Lemuria, as well as the Aztec and Mayan cultures and the American Indian cultures. Glazed clay or stone cones were used with a double helix carved inside to create a spiral energy flow carrying herbs or incense into the ear canal, which is a spiral itself. This is heresay and no written record exists.
In modern times the Spaniards in South America, and Native Americans such as the Cherokee, Yaqui and the Mexican Natives still use coning. Material variations such as rolled up newspapers are used in South America, while waxed, shaped newspaper with a plug of incense two thirds of the way down is used by Mexican Natives. Straw shaped cloth and wax cones are used in Europe. The Amish utilize the Cherokee style. The Choctaw simply blow smoke of herbs in the ear canal. Latest report of Mexican Grandma using rolled up newspaper infused with castor oil.
Our cones are made of strips of unbleached 100% cotton dipped into a mixture of beeswax and herbs in the form of extracts and oils, or flower or gem essences.
The strips are hand rolled spirally, dripped and left to harden. Our cones are then scraped, trimmed and plastic wrapped as pairs with 2 skewers and instructions.
The cone is lit on the wide end, gently placed in the ear and burned to create smoke containing spiral energy into the ear canal.
The Way it works: Smoke pours into the ear. Coning is very soothing, relaxing and non-invasive. At no point does the tip of the cone in the ear get hot to the touch. Heat is not a factor.
How often: This is a process. We suggest three conings, three to seven days apart. This allows the process to complete a cycle of clearing accumulated debris. After that, groupings of three until you have completed your process. Thereafter one can be coned every six months. Muscle testing (kinesiology) or pendulum can be used to determine how many conings are needed and when you have completed your process.
Physically: You may feel increased pressure, fluid, movement or inflammation of the lymphatic system. Your body is clearing. Allow it! You may feel changes in sight, color perception and balance. This is due to subtle changes in energy flow. (If the pressure reaches a point of discomfort, a follow-up coning should be done as soon as possible, as a strong movement has begun which needs completion.) Drink lots of water.
Misalignment of occipital lobes, which lie underneath the base of the skull become pulled down from beneath the skull, as a result of stresses. The flow of cerebral fluid in the brain will become impaired, causing congestion in the ears, sinus cavity and neck tension, even moving to the shoulders. When coning, ongoing adjustment of the occipitals is recommended by Chiropractic.
Metaphysically: Coning works directly on the chakra system to clear and strengthen the auric bodies. It is said to dislodge discarnate entities and negativity. It's like smudging your insides. The ear contains nerve endings and acupuncture points to every other area of the body, mind and emotions. The nerve endings are connected by streams of the subtle energy flow which carry our life force energy. If hearing is impaired or blocked, we are disconnected from that energy. Coning acts as a catalyst to clear out debris accumulated on nerve endings. This allows for clear vibrational flow to the corresponding area of the mind, body and spirit. This clears the way for other methods of healing.
