A Balanced Approach to Wellness!

hugging oneself

“Joyful love is love that is bestowed without conditions and without expectations. Joyful love can be felt when overcome by the beauty of nature, when immersed in the attention of a playful animal, when mesmerized by the exquisiteness of an infant, and when experiencing the love of a person who has strong feelings of love in return. Joyful love is felt more strongly when it is allowed to spread and is given towards oneself as well.” –from the chapter “Unexpectant Love” in Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey

Loving oneself joyfully is not so simple. It requires acceptance, appreciation, and action. The three As.

Acceptance is needed for love to grow boundlessly. Acceptance of physical handicaps, annoying habits, and learned criticisms is key to feeling loving towards oneself. Each person has physical handicaps, with some being more apparent than others. Accepting them and then working with or around them is joyful behavior. Each person has habits that irk others and oneself. Acknowledging these habits and either working to change them or embracing them is joyful focus. Each person has learned criticisms from caregivers, society, and authority figures. When the criticisms are internalized, they can cause emotional and mental damage. Understanding that the criticisms are harmful and then accepting and moving past them is joyful intention.

Appreciation is needed for self-love to be possible. Seeing oneself clearly and ignoring noise that calls for criticism is necessary for appreciation to occur. Noticing accomplishments–large and small, plus remembering to express gratitude for capabilities are necessary for self-appreciation and joyful expressions of confidence.

Action is required to create expressions of self-love. The actions can be an intangible or tangible pat on the back, a daily ritual that includes acknowledgement of being alive, a prayer of thanksgiving, joyful activity (jumping for joy, dancing around, laughing, or silliness), and a vocal or silent statement of love for oneself.

Spiritual expression refers to more than religious affiliation.

Having religious affiliation does not automatically instill spiritual connection. Even people who outwardly show religious fervor by donning the clothing of the devout or attending religious ceremonies regularly are not necessarily experiencing spiritual connection.

Religious affiliation is one avenue towards spiritual connection, but there are many other ways to achieve it. Pondering the beauty of a tree or the crush of the waves on the shore or the movement of the clouds can incite spiritual connection and lead to personal expressions of spiritual longing. Attending to the needs of children or animals can create connection that leads to spiritual expression of amazement and awe. Immersion into artistic expressions of oneself through music, movement, or art are spiritual expressions when the artists are truly expressing their soulful selves.

Spiritual expression impacts health and well-being. Prayers that are expressed earnestly are spiritual expressions that raise immunity. So are the ponderings about nature and nature’s creatures. Immersion in soulful artistic expression is also impactful on health, as long as the body’s needs are not ignored (the needs for proper sleep, hydration, and nutrition).

The key words are earnestness, pondering, and soulful. When any of these words actually describe the endeavor, then the spiritual expression is uplifting to the body and soul. Rote recitation of prayers, feigned amazement at nature, and obligatory execution of artistic works are not uplifting at all.

Spiritual connection

Cover_Food 2020

I’m happy to announce that “The Food 20/20 Plan” has been printed and is available on amazon.com! It’s a book that makes me very happy because it combines my interest in nutrition with guidance from Spirit. I hope you can see the cover clearly, because it shows all the elements of the plan and their importance in our diets.

Here’s the introduction:

“Food 20/20 means seeing food and the eating process with 20/20 vision, seeing them clearly and with focus. Eating is a process that keeps us alive and keeps our bodies functioning. Eating is meant to support our bodies as long as we are alive, and is meant to help us maintain good health.

Nourishment is more than consuming foods that supply nutrients to the body. Nourishment includes intention and atmosphere. Nourishment of the body nourishes the soul when the intention is appreciative of the food and the atmosphere is uplifting.

The Food 20/20 plan presents eating that is elevated and satisfying. Following it can open you to better health, increased energy, and fulfilling dining experiences!

Sad heart

There are many reasons we sink into failure mode. Sometimes we lose sight of goals and desires. Sometimes we forget the steps required to get somewhere or lose the way completely. Occasionally we make impressive starts but then slack off or quit completely. We even choose to blame people from our distant past for our selecting to fail.

The call to fail can be strong, but the call to succeed can be just as strong when we really want to succeed. To help choose success over failure, here are a few tips:

  • Create reminders of the chosen path. The reminders can be notes placed strategically around the house, alarms set on the phone, regular meetings with supporters or like-minded people, carefully crafted schedules, rewards for reaching major and minor goals, pep talks in the form of quiet reflection or animated soliloquy. Each person chooses the reminders that are personally helpful.
  • Examine health habits. Sleep is important: are you getting enough nighttime sleep? Nutrition is important: are you eating mainly nutritious foods at regular times? Friendships: are you making time for visits with friends? Activity: are you moving your body enough to release energy and avoid stiffness?
  • Distractions are too numerous. Understand the things that are undermining you and take steps to move them out of view or reach.
  • Make sure that the goals and desires are really suitable for who you are. Are they goals you set for yourself or were they set for you by others? The best way to know if a goal or desire is suitable is to understand who you are by taking the time to understand the things that truly appeal to you.

Success or failure can bring happiness or disappointment. Failure that offers a way out of something not wanted can be a positive thing, while failure to attain something truly desired can be devastating. If we know ourselves and know what we need and want, we can work towards them through perseverance and focus.

Because of the racial distress happening in the United States now, I’m reposting Spiritual Position on race as set forth in the book Descending into War, Descending into Contempt.

Condescension because of race is irrational. Belittling because of race is weak. Generalizing about race is uninformed. Thinking disparaging thoughts about other races is contemptuous.

Superiority because of the foolish thinking that race has influence on value is deluded. No race is superior to any other. Race is variations of people. No more, no less.

Descending into War, Descending into Contempt explains the main causes of conflict, which are the feelings of superiority, inequity, disappointment, and emasculation. These disruptive feelings push people to act with contempt towards others. They incite actions that end connections and lead to conflicts that often seem insurmountable.

Conflict seems to exist everywhere. Racial tensions divide, political opponents battle, and religious groups are combative. Even connected and supportive relationships fester in conflict. The sources of conflict are many, and they impact together and individually to inflict negativity within families, communities, and nations.

Acknowledging the sources of conflict is the first step to stopping conflict.

Although the topics of conflict, war, and contempt are difficult and often disheartening, Descending into War, Descending into Contempt ends with wisdom and instructions that can lead to a more just society.

The immune system is designed to stay functional, but modern society provides too many ways to sabotage it. In the post “Immune system decimators”, the decimators are listed, and some of them are discussed in later posts:

Environmental hazards that decimate the immune system

More about immune system decimators

Immune system decimators, exploration continued

If you want to know what to do to overcome the destructive work that can be done to your immune system, read on…

Here are ten must-dos to keep your immune system functioning properly:

  • Food first:
    Less sugar, more salads. Less white flour, more lentils. Less margarine, more water and soup. Less processed meats and cheeses, more seeds. Less soft drinks, more whole grains.
  • Environmental hazards:
    Switch to natural cleansers and remove cleaning products that contain ingredients listed in the environmental hazards post. Limit dry cleaning. Keep smartphones and smart devices farther from your body. Avoid cigarette smoke and cut back if you smoke. Use natural beauty products. Avoid sunscreen products that are not safe.
  • Sleep:
    Each person needs to understand his or her sleep needs and be mindful to fulfill them. (There are other blog posts about sleep.)
  • Trauma:
    Working through past traumas is very important. When the current time is traumatic, steps to handle the trauma are very important.
  • Injury from drugs:
    Carefully check labels of prescription and nonprescription drugs to be aware of side effects and possible contraindications. Addictions are difficult to handle alone and require resolve and support from others: for addictions to legal or illegal drugs, aim to get help.
  • Loud sounds:
    Loud sounds are detrimental to the immune system, especially for children. Keep this fact in mind as you live your life.
  • Alcoholic beverages:
    Drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation and at a slow pace has little effect on health, unless there are any of these circumstances: tendency towards addiction in the family, when autoimmune conditions are suspected or confirmed, when overconsumption of sweets or insulin resistance are occurring, when alcoholic beverages are forced on a person who doesn’t want them. Alcoholism, like addiction to drugs, is difficult to handle alone.

There are more ways to build up the immune system; however, the must-dos listed above have a very big effect.

In the blog post, “Immune system decimators”, the major things that decimate the immune system are listed. Today we’ll find out about a two of them that are surprisingly related.

Let’s look at: 7. Trivialization of bodily functions  (includes ignoring signals to urinate and defecate) and 9. Drug-related injury  (includes damage from cigarettes, prescription and nonprescription drugs, and  improper use of drugs). Each of these causes are partially within a person’s control and partially not.

Trivialization of bodily functions can be taught or self-discovered. People who feel that they are too busy to attend to bodily functions have self-discovered this behavior. People who were taught as children that bodily functions are unimportant or negative have less control of their destructive behavior. The impact on the immune system depends on a person’s age when trivialization of bodily functions starts to be a way of life. Over time, the immune system is more and more impacted and it can eventually give up. Taking care of bodily functions is of utmost importance for balance and well-being.

People choose to use drugs for many reasons. Sometimes drugs are prescribed to them by doctors. Sometimes a friend supplies them. Sometimes a person searches them out. Sometimes societal pressure convinces people that the drugs are a way of life. Whatever the reasons for using drugs, their impact on the immune system is the same. If the drug is taken irregularly, its impact on the immune system is dependent on the person’s age and emotional state. Chronic drug use, like trivialization of bodily functions, impacts the immune system and causes it to give up.

Once the immune system has been decimated by drug use that is chronic or excessive or by extended trivialization of bodily functions, the body cannot protect itself from invading viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Internal gene-related disturbances are usually not triggered by these types of disturbances, unless fear is present and is chronic or overly strong.

The immune system requires a functioning framework in which to handle its duties. External decimators, like drugs, and internal decimators, like trivialization of bodily functions, break the framework. The immune system simply cannot handle the onslaught of destruction.

Cecil the lion

In the blog post, “Immune system decimators”, the major things that decimate the immune system are listed. Today we’ll find out about a few of them that are related.

From the list, 2. Trauma that is physical and emotional which overwhelms the body and 4. Holding onto perceived injustices are closely related. If 8. Fear is involved with either of them, their effects on the immune system are more devastating.

The immune system is meant to keep our bodies protected from viruses, bacteria, funguses, protozoa, wounds, and criticism. The immune system also helps prevent gene-initiated diseases and syndromes.

# 2. When a traumatic event occurs, the body can be resilient or can store the traumatic memory. Traumas can wash through a person and leave little effects or they can imbed reminders in organs and systems in the body. These reminders swerve functionality, which then changes the ways in which the body handles onslaughts of germs. After a trauma, a person can be more susceptible to illness. If the trauma left reminders, the susceptibility to illness can continue for years.

# 4. Holding onto perceived injustices is surprising in its ability to unhinge the immune system. People face disappointments throughout their lives, and people who remember and regurgitate the disappointments are lowering their body’s ability to maintain a strong immune system.

# 8. Fear is a difficult emotion. It is natural, and yet, it sometimes overtakes living. A fearful event has repercussions in the body, but usually the fear instigates protective responses. If the fear is chronic, the protective responses slowly weaken the immune system. If fear is present during a traumatic event, the body can “rebel” and various buried syndromes can ignite. For example, if a person experiences a trauma and feels VERY fearful while the trauma is occurring, gene activation can occur and possibly trigger an autoimmune response.

Fear that accompanies holding onto perceived injustices is less destructive, but keeps the immune system lowered.

As with the other decimators of the immune system, damage depends on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina.

There are environmental hazards that wreak havoc on our immune systems. They inhibit the modules of the immune system from proper communications and functionality so that the immune system cannot perform its important work of protecting our bodies from viruses, bacteria, funguses, protozoa, wounds, and criticism.

Environmental hazards can be the most severe disrupters of immune system functionality. Here are some types of environmental hazards that cause trouble (in no particular order):

  • household products that contain sodium hydroxide, diethanolamine, stearalkonium hectorite, or sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate.
  • asbestos
  • arsenic, especially from cigarettes and arsenic trioxide in some cancer treatments
  • pesticides that contain ammonium or arsenic trioxide
  • nitrogen oxides that are in exhaust fumes
  • formaldehyde and polyfluoroalkyl substances(PFAS) in clothing
  • smartphone metals
  • calcium oxide

These immune-system decimators attack the immune system with varying degrees of damage depending on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina.

To learn about other immune-system decimators, see the blog post “Immune system decimators”.

***IMMUNE SYSTEM*** 

IMMUNE SYSTEM! These two words should appear in all caps and with marquee emphasis! The immune system keeps our bodies protected and strong. Without protection and strength, our bodies can succumb to viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa, wounds, and criticism.

The immune system prevents the onset of diseases and aging-related symptoms. When the immune system is strong, autoimmune syndromes are thwarted (before they start), gene-initiated attacks are prevented, emotional turmoil is lessened, and minor ailments are avoided. The immune system, when it is functioning properly, is that powerful!

Here are the major things that decimate the immune system’s ability to protect and strengthen our bodies. They are presented in their order of severity.

  1. Exposure to environmental hazards
  2. Trauma that is physical and emotional which overwhelms the body
  3. Sleep that is too little for the person’s age
  4. Holding onto perceived injustices
  5. Constant criticism
  6. Inadequate nutrition (includes inadequate intake of water)
  7. Trivialization of bodily functions (includes ignoring signals to urinate and defecate)
  8. Fear
  9. Drug-related injury (includes damage from cigarettes, prescription and nonprescription drugs, and  improper use of drugs)
  10. Exposure to overly loud sounds (children are especially affected)
  11. Alcoholism
  12. Exposure to people who are ill

Each of these immune-system decimators attacks the immune system with varying degrees of damage depending on the person’s age, current health status, and emotional stamina. In combination, they can overwhelm and defeat the body’s ability to withstand them.

Q&A microwaves

microwave

A friend has asked me to ask Spirit about the microwave. Here are her questions and Spirit’s answers. The list of questions isn’t exhaustive, so if you have questions please add them in the Comments.

Is it ok to use a microwave?

The answer is neither yes or no. A microwave is a tool in the kitchen and it depends how people use it.

If so, what are the recommended guidelines?

  1. In general, any food that is cooked in the microwave for over 10 minutes (without stopping the microwave in the middle) will not be cooked evenly and can cause burns if eaten immediately after the microwaving.
  2. If the door is damaged in any way, the microwave should no longer be used.
  3. The microwave should be placed where children under the age of seven can’t open it, but not so high that food containers are difficult to insert and remove.

Will the food be less nutritious?

No.

Is it OK to use one for heating (as opposed to cooking)?

Yes.

What about flash cooking vegetables?

Vegetables cook better on the stove top when the heat is high and the cooking time is short.

Is it OK to use plastic containers in the microwave, as long as the food contains no oil? Is it OK to cover food with a plastic cover? a beeswax-infused cover?

The best containers for microwaving are glass. The best covers are microwave approved (from a reputable company), paper, and not old (old means in terms of usage: no scratches or tears). No to beeswax coverings and plastics that can melt in a dishwasher.

Is it important to stand some distance away while it is working?

Several factors affect the distance to stand. Older people who are not ill can stand next to it, while ill people or children should stand farther away. The issue is not radiation, but of vibrations that affect blood flow and digestion.

Is it OK to cook porridge in the microwave?

Yes.

How often should one have the MW checked for excessive radiation?

If the microwave is damaged so that the door doesn’t close completely, get a new microwave.

sleep

Sleep is more important that most people think. It isn’t a waste of time or dreaded event. It is the time when our bodies repair, restore, recharge, and reconnect (through dreams). Nighttime sleep is the most important sleep, because our bodies were designed to rest at night for a length of time.

The importance of extended nighttime sleep cannot be overstressed. We don’t have to sleep the entire night without waking up in the middle for the sleep to be successful. We can even wake up five, six, seven times! The main thing is to let the sleep atmosphere remain, and the body will do its repairing, restoring, recharging, and reconnecting.

If you have trouble falling asleep or returning to sleep after awakening in the middle, keep your eyes closed and lie in bed quietly. If you need a bathroom break, take it and then return to bed immediately and close your eyes. Your body will continue its important nighttime work. If you turn on a light, look at your phone or computer, watch TV, read a book, or talk, the nighttime work ceases. Even if you sleep later the next day, the interrupted sleep will limit the nighttime work that was meant to be done.

If your work forces you to stay awake at night, aim to have uninterrupted sleep during the day so that your body can do its restorative work. The repair, recharging, and reconnection work might not be as thorough, but some will take place.

Parents of infants and young children often don’t get uninterrupted sleep. For them, making sure to eat well can help the body stay balanced.

This coronavirus time in which so many of us are in isolation and are self-distancing can be a time of self-discovery, if we are open to ourselves. In the book Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey, there is a section named “Life Uplifted”. In this section, I explored things that are life-uplifting for me. The section explains:

Life-uplifting is a term that has so much meaning, and it can guide us if we let it. Choosing activities by asking “Is this activity life-uplifting?” could help differentiate between wasteful time-wasters and life-uplifters. What is a life-uplifting activity?  Each person answers this question differently depending upon soulful likes and abilities…Identifying them can help keep focus when distractions overcome prudent choices.

When I wrote the book, I spent a lot of time figuring out activities that are life-uplifting for me. Now, I get distracted watching the news and waiting to see the latest headlines. I’m writing this blog post to help others explore their own life-uplifting activities and to remind me of mine. Here are some of mine that I listed in the book:

…writing about Spiritual Presence, connecting people to balance and healing…food: buying vegetables and fruit full of freshly harvested vitality at the local farmers market, preparing healthful and delicious meals for myself and for family and friends, appreciating the food, savoring the aroma and appearance of food prepared by others; dancing: with my dance-class women, at live music performances, during Energy Guidance Complete sessions, alone while listening to music that is lively or meaningful; singing with others and alone; walking: walking along lovely plant-filled paths, walking with family and friends, walking with my dog, walking to get somewhere and walking to be energized; hugging family and friends; experiencing intimacy with my husband; watching my children evolve; laughing and talking with loved ones and with non-acquaintances; …participating in community activities and celebrations; experiencing weather and seasons; crocheting blankets for my loved ones; planning family and community gatherings; …volunteering at local and regional events; …reading; participating in religious observances with my family and with my community; smiling; listening; empathizing; caring for my garden, my home, other people;  visiting friends and family, the sick and the grieving; creating:  crafts, atmospheres, and relationships; caring for my health and safety;  cleaning public areas; appreciating everything: family, friends, community, conveniences, natural wonders, challenges, opportunities, and inherited skills and values; keeping myself focused on the activities that balance and uplift me.

I hope that you with take the time to explore your life-uplifting activities!

Note: This blog post has been spiritually inspired.

I was asked to ask Spirit if it’s true that once people have coronavirus they are immune from contracting it again. I understand that I can answer this question and so I’m writing it now.

The answer is “The chance of contracting the specific virus again is 50%.” There are several versions of the coronavirus circulating, because it has altered on its journey around the world. In each country, there is more than one version, although they are similar in their structures. Some versions create more difficult symptoms.

A person who has the most potent version is not immune from the less potent versions. A couple of the less potent versions provide immunity from all the other versions.

foods made from scratch

Being at home during this time of social distancing and isolation is an opportunity to adjust eating habits and explore food possibilities. It’s an opportunity to move away from eating out–and even from take-away–and turn to food preparation, preparation of food at it’s best!

The first step is to understand the importance of what we eat and how we eat it. Here’s a blog post to begin your understanding: “The year 2020 begins with Food 20/20“. (I’m currently working on a book to expand on the Food 20/20 plan.)

Besides thinking about the food, we also need to think about the atmosphere in which we eat. Some of us are in isolation alone, others are with family, and some are with friends.  If you’re eating alone, please keep this information in mind:

“Eating alone is balancing as long as the eating is thorough, nourishing, and done while sitting. If the eating is rushed or delayed or inadequate nutritionally, then the eating causes imbalance. Reading while eating is not detrimental unless the material being read is upsetting. Watching TV or the computer while eating is not detrimental unless the material being watched is upsetting or worthless. Eating while standing at the refrigerator or elsewhere in the kitchen causes imbalance in the emotional and spiritual levels.”

If you’re eating with family members, please keep this information in mind:

“Eating with family can be as nourishing as eating with friends, when family members are considerate. When a family member is unkind during a meal, the eating can cause imbalance because of the emotional state of the body during food intake. Consistent discomfort at mealtimes can lead to eating disorders and other emotional/ spiritual problems. In general though, family meals are very important and should be prioritized.”

The quoted information is from the book Vitality!— How to Create a Life That Is Healthy.

Staying in the home more is an opportunity to prepare food yourself. The benefits of cooking from scratch are explained in this blog post “The health benefits of food from scratch“. There are many recipes online to try. I have a food blog with nutritious and yummy recipes: Yumtritious Eating!

This time of social distancing and isolation can be confusing and overwhelming. Staying in good health will help us all get through it. The first step to good health is healthful eating. If you can avoid sugar and sugar substitutes, your health will be more balanced. This blog post can help you understand the different types of sweeteners: “The Facts: Sweeteners from natural to laboratory-made, Best & Worst“.

[I’m currently in isolation with my husband after our recent return from a trip abroad. The picture above shows some of the foods I’ve made since returning home. It’s hard to be away from my friends and clients, but at least I’m having fun in the kitchen!
Picture, clockwise from left: rye flour-seed crackers, roasted beets, hummus, zucchini-potato soup, and mung bean sprouts.]

David statue-trees

Staying at home provides an opportunity to discover the world nearby. Here’s a poem that reminds us of the beauty located close to home.

Loveliness for the Eyes

The statue of David.
Standing in its grandeur,
So tall and arresting,
Its beauty is breathtaking.
To see it
Requires entrance fee
to the museum,
Plus a visit to Florence.

The tree across the street.
Standing in its grandeur,
So tall and arresting,
Its beauty is breathtaking.
To see it
Requires opening
one’s eyes
To the masterpiece at home.

Unfolding book cover

This poem is from the book of poetry Unfolding: A Collection of Wisdom Poetry, which is available through amazon.com.

 

[From Renee: Everything I post on this website is information I’ve received from Spirit. The information aligns with scientific knowledge sometimes, and sometimes not. Previously I have posted information that I didn’t understand, but because I receive it from Spirit, I believe it to be true. Yesterday, I asked Spirit how coronavirus started and I received an answer. Usually I post whatever I receive, but this time I decided to first ask a friend who is a scientist working on coronavirus, among other viruses. He said the information was interesting but that it doesn’t align with scientific knowledge about the different types of flu viruses, so he thinks it’s not plausible. The scientists he works with are exploring the bat connection and Spirit tells me the bat connection is wrong. After the conversation with my friend, I wasn’t going to post what I received, but I’ve changed my mind. I’m putting the information out because I’ve believed the information from Spirit since I started our connection, and I know that scientists make mistakes.]

Viruses change through three ways: 1. because of physical forces. 2. because of extreme emotional turmoil. 3. with contact human-animal.  1. Physical forces include actions a person does that create an internal environment of change while a virus is within the body. 2. Extreme emotional turmoil can trigger changes to the androstenedione hormone in men which can then trigger morphing of certain viruses. 3. Human-animal contact that is sexual in nature can create new viruses and other infectious pathogens.

In the case of coronavirus, physical forces caused its introduction. In Wuhan, China, a middle-aged man had the flu. He was feverish, but continued to work because of pressures at his job. He was on his way to work and he scratched inside his ear and got earwax inside the nails of two fingers. A couple minutes later, he scratched inside his nose and got dried mucus inside the two fingernails (the mucus was different from usual mucus because of the flu). He then scratched his scalp with those two fingers at a spot that was very dry. Because he was feverish, he was unaware how hard he scratched, and he made the dry spot open and bleed. Germs from the mucus and then the earwax entered the open wound and then entered the bloodstream. Within 48 hours his flu morphed into coronavirus. His symptoms changed to include a cough. Because of his work pressures, he continued to be in contact with people and his cough projected the virus to others.

Although the coronavirus started in this one specific person in Wuhan, China, it is global because of the man’s job. He worked at a company supplying parts to international companies. These international companies were putting pressure on the Chinese company and, in turn, the Chinese company put pressure on the man to work despite his illness. Had the man been able to stay home during his illness, the coronavirus would not have started. Had the Chinese company’s boss not felt pressure to meet unrealistic deadlines, he would not have pressured the man to work. Had the international companies been less aggressive in their marketing, they would not have been so aggressive towards the Chinese company. Had the atmosphere for immediate satisfaction of desires not been so pervasive, the international companies would not have felt so compelled to comply. And so it goes….The circle of destruction…

[From Renee: I’m sitting in quarantine for two weeks, having just returned from a trip abroad. Doing my best to not spread germs that might have joined me on my international journey. I’ve shared the explanation, which is my role. ]

Post 17-loiving self

Investing in your health is a wise move. Taking the time to know your body and its needs is smart. Learning about healthful living and natural healing is time spent appropriately.

Investing in your health is not expensive when you understand the basics of good health. Here are the basics:

  1. Drink water that is free of additives such as sugar, sugar substitutes, or rust from old pipes. Water from the tap is good, unless the water is from a polluted source.
    **Spend the time to learn about the water source in your area.
  2. Notice how you feel when you wake up in the morning without an alarm. The rested feeling is your body’s way of teaching you the amount of sleep it needs.
    **Spend the time to understand your body’s sleep needs and honor the importance of sleep.
  3. Invest time every day in relationships. Family, friends, and acquaintances add a dimension to life that is irreplaceable.
    **Kind words are free, as are smiles, hugs, and caring gestures. Use this free currency as often as possible.
  4. Take time to learn about nutrition.
    **The food you put into your body every day either fuels your health or leads to illness and decay. Choose health!
  5. Expand your heart, your intangible heart. Heart-felt living brings comfort and confidence.
    **Learn your body’s reactions to being helpful. Do you feel warm and friendly when you think about animals? How do you feel when you think about the sea or the sky or flowers? Remember how you felt when people were kind to you. Consider the things that really comfort or excite you, and explore ways to bring them into your life.

—————————

More can be done to live well, but the basics are a smart place to start. Here’s to good health and investing wisely in it!

Ferocity

Here is spiritual advice for proofing yourself against coronavirus, and other viruses that are circulating now.

1. How to stay virus-proof

  • Avoid people who are ill (not just with coronavirus), people who are emotionally draining, and people who are unimportant to you.
  • Stay physically balanced: sleep the right amount for you, stay hydrated, eat nutritionally balanced foods, avoid sugar and sugar substitutes, and breathe deeply throughout the day.
  • If you have illnesses that require medical intervention, eat extra nutritionally rich foods and practice physical routines that include deep breathing and meditative states.

2. How to be carrier-proof

  • Viruses circulate constantly, and people who are well can carry the viruses and transmit them. Besides doing all the actions listed above, during the virus season, aim to feel rested.

3. How to protect and illness-proof susceptible people

  • Exposure to viruses can cause those who are susceptible to succumb to the viruses intensely. To lessen the effects of the viruses, intensive liquid intake, protein intake, and sleep can help.
  • Exposure to viruses can immediately weaken some who are susceptible. These people require care by virus experts.
  • Regular exercise that is not intensive and spiritual practices can lower the effects of viruses if nutrition, sleep, and emotional state are balanced.
  • Being in a susceptible group does not guarantee intense illness or death. Emotional state is extremely important to combat viruses. Fear intensifies the effects of viruses. Gratitude lessens the effects.

Continue living

Objectivity exists in the world of the spirit. Subjectivity exists in the world of the corporal.

That “objective” is a word which is used to describe news or research or competitions or opinions is faulty. People are inherently subjective. Given that people are subjective in their thinking, the expectation that people or communications can be objective is misdirected expectation.

We all have opinions, ideas, thoughts, and reactions that are influenced by society, upbringing, and historical events. Our soul-given abilities, likes, and dislikes also influence our opinions, ideas, thoughts, and reactions.

From our birth, we are destined to see the world through a subjective, individualistic periscope. Our view is limited by design.
