Sun, Stomach and Silver Stole the Show with Stein

Matthew Stein returned for a visit on DestinySurvival Radio this week. And, yes, broadly speaking, we talked about sun, stomach and silver.

Matthew Stein is a very informative guest and the author of When Technology Fails and When Disaster Strikes.



We spent the first half of our time together talking about the differences and similarities between extreme solar flares and an EMP that could result from a nuclear attack high in the atmosphere. In a nutshell, many of your electronic gadgets might still work, and maybe even your car. But the infrastructure we count on for everyday life will be very badly crippled.

Depending on the magnitude of the event, the lights won’t go out everywhere. But we’ll experience major game changing setbacks. Stein says there are preventive measures that could lessen the blow. Unfortunately they’re not being put into place as he suggests.



We each have an inner compass to guide us and help us survive in crisis situations. Surprisingly, it’s not the rational mind. Instead, it’s an intuitive sense.

In both his books Stein discusses the pit of the stomach exercises. He shared what happened to one family who got caught in a snow storm and didn’t know enough to put them into practice.

The first thing to do in a stressful survival situation is to stop and calm down. Pray. Breathe deeply. Focus on the area between your belly button and rib cage. This helps shut off the rational thinking mind and activates the intuitive thinking mind.

Visualize the possible scenarios you face. Pay attention to what you’re feeling. Whether your stomach feels upset or calm will dictate the choice you make. Don’t be in a hurry. Recheck yourself if you’re still not sure.

That’s probably an oversimplification. But this is important. Stein says making use of the inner compass has helped thousands of survivors when they didn’t know what to do.



We spent the last several minutes of the show talking about alternative medicine and its importance for preppers. One day we may not have access to the modern medicine we enjoy now. Then what will we do?

It’s a good idea to have several herbals and remedies at the ready. Something as simple as colloidal silver might make the difference between life and death. Stein has directions for making a low cost, battery powered colloidal silver generator in each of his books.
