“Special thanks to: Larry for taking us on a tour and explaining the importance of crocodiles in their habitat. We learnt about the origin of the sub species of crocodiles at the sanctuary and how they got there, that the animals are not aggressive by nature (as many people tend to think), plus had a reasoning about their sacredness and symbolism in the Jamaican Cost of Arms; Bianca, and her Uncle for guiding us to the sanctuary and waterfall on their family property. Much love to all of the family at FMJ Estates, Ltd, run by Nicholas Jones. My sistrens Monique and Allison for their encouragement and support towards the (wo)manifestation of this divine mission. I’m learning as I go; and Give Thanks for the start!” – Ayahreece, “Ayah Trod”
I found Kareece’s new vlog to be special and informatively interesting from the get-go. Crocodiles are not new to Jamaica, but the only experience I had ever had with them was through depictions in popular media. That meant I saw them as prowling beasts, ready to attack and devour all those who even dared to cross near their path.
Imagine my surprise, then, in watching the first new episode of “Ayah Trod”. The power of technology is amazing when it comes to capturing information and detail, and I was actually amazed to see how Larry interacted with the animals as they took a trip through the sanctuary. At one particular moment, Larry breaks the surface of the water and this makes a crocodile jump up thrashing to the surface; the difference in expectation, however, was that instead of immediately attacking all who were present, the crocodile only opened his jaws to reveal his teeth in a way that cautioned them from provoking him. At no time did he rush to hurt or malign anyone, showing a considerable amount of patience and restraint.
In a wider sense, the video was also very informative as we were able to learn about the history of crocodiles in Jamaica, and in particular why they were included in the Jamaican Coat of Arms. Uncle Larry states: “The crocodile was put there to signify resilience of strength in all types of adversity; which is to signify that no matter what happen to Jamaican people, no matter what you throw at us, we’re gonna come through. Strength.” The vlog also shows them finding a nearby waterfall and enjoying the therapeutic session in the water.
Another aspect of Kareece’s entrepreneurship skills is her new brand of Jamaican wild crafted Golden Sea Moss (the gel product). According to the official website, “Sea Moss has antiviral agent that cure and prevent respiratory aliments such as pneumonia colds, bronchitis flue and even tuberculosis it is rich in potassium chloride which is said to dissolve guitars on mucus that discharge caused by the swelling of the mucous membrane skin muscle and joint pain. Golden Sea Moss contains 92 of the 102 minerals that the human body consists of. This nutrient-dense sea vegetable packed with vitamins and minerals that are essential for all functions of the body. Commonly known as Irish moss or sea moss, this seaweed is scientifically known as Chondrus crispus. Generations have thrived on the nearly 10% protein,15% mineral matter, and rich iodine and sulfur content that this sea vegetable has to offer.”
Kareece is an avid lover of cultures, an I Ching practitioner, a staple in the Jamaican creative and entertainment industry and a woman who heals and guides many of the people around her. I truly endorse all of her efforts.
