Can the world be repaired?

Last week, I was walking along the street and overheard a man on a motorcycle who was stopped at an intersection. I heard him exclaim into his phone “It is impossible to repair the world!”, and then he rode off. This man’s statement caught my attention, and I decided to ask Spirit if this statement is true.

Here is what Spirit shared with me:

“The view that the world is unfixable is incorrect. Many things can be fixed, but they require clear vision and purpose. Relationships among people can be fixed through patience and understanding. Relationships between people and the environment require determination to be undamaging. Treatment of animals that is humane requires people be aware of the similarities between animals and people. Environmental damage is preventable through acknowledgment of ways to prevent damage. Wars can be prevented through a lessening of nationalistic superiority. Virus transmission can be prevented by maintaining good health. Soil can be replenished through attention to natural cycles of biorhythms.

Repair of the world requires desire for humility, perspective, and humor. And patience. And kindness. And more patience. And more kindness.”

Immune system decimators, exploration continued

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.

Immunity from coronavirus?

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.

What’s up with “fight or flight”?

Distracting colors

Are “fight or flight” our main responses to fear and stress? That’s what everyone says, but is that so? I’ve asked Spirit, because I want to know. Here’s what Spirit informs me:

People have built-in mechanisms that evaluate danger. (We can call them signals and pulls.) These mechanisms help us evaluate situations and feel how to respond. Our responses depend on many things: age, health status, physical impediments, mental breadth, hunger or thirst, breath capacity, emotional attachments, emotional memories, abdominal state, vision, fears, and awakeness. Besides these uniquely personal statuses, we are influenced by our family, neighbors, responsibilities, and desires.

When a situation requires a response, our bodies (intangible and tangible) must process a response that suits our personal statuses and our outer circle. If the outer circle (family, neighbors, etc.) has strong influence, then our response will be geared towards others. If our response is completely our own, then the personal statuses will force us to devise a response to suit our current situation. If we choose a response that doesn’t suit (for example, choosing to hide when we are too exhausted to move), our signals or pulls will usually join to give us the ability to pursue the chosen response.

Here are typical responses to fear and stress: hiding, lowering to the ground, pulling inwards to be physically compact, freezing in place, falling asleep, entering a shock state, denial, emotional displays (crying, sobbing, begging, anger), and confusion. And possibly, fight. And possibly, flight.  Fight and flight are two responses among many so that to speak only of fight or flight is an incorrect characterization of human response.

Each of the responses has a different effect on the body, some effects being more destructive than others. Stress that is handled through freezing in place or denial has differing effects than fight or angry actions. Stress that is denied can be more destructive than stress that is released through tears. Fear that is handled by hiding can be permanently installed in the body, while fear that is handled through entering a shock state can be forgotten. Each response yields a different effect on the body depending on the personal statuses and the forces of the outer circle.

Characterizing the effects of fear and stress as fight or flight is too broad. Each person is an individual response being, and no two people are alike.

The Ten Commandments oxygenated

ten commandments

Oxygen gives us life that fits our bodies and our mental well-being. So too, the Ten Commandments! They are a source of many minor reactions and many major changes–both oxygen and the commandments. In their own ways they bring order, connection, and creation.

The Ten Commandments have pertinence today, although their focus has been seen by some to be irrelevant. Their messages are straightforward and yet, they have been held at bay by people who choose to enable contrary actions.

Here is a commandment to consider when facing your daily dilemmas:
  • Give your time to sensitivity: Sensitivity towards family, neighbors, and outsiders. Sensitivity to the needs of the animals that feed you. Sensitivity to the Earth’s treasures. Sensitivity to the ebbs and flows of all life.

Spirit shares this commandment, because sensitivity is missing in too many interactions and decisions. Sensitivity brings positive results and less illness.

Appendix Importance–why you should care (plus one more appendix flexibility exercise)

Appendix flexible

The appendix is misunderstood and underappreciated. It is an organ that baffles doctors and scientists, so they have dismissed its usefulness. In the last few years, some have begun to question science’s indifference to the appendix. A slow appreciation is beginning to take place. That’s good for us.

The appendix is an organ that initiates and monitors healing throughout the body. It works with glands to provide appropriate healing responses. It also handles end-of-life activities and responses. The appendix is a lifelong participant in the body’s daily work to maintain health.

Removal of the appendix affects healing responses. Some of the appendix’s work is absorbed by other bodily functioning, but not all. The lack of an appendix requires exertion by other organs, glands, and flows.

Keeping the appendix strong and flexible aids the body’s healing abilities. Here are blog posts to read:

Here is one more appendix flexibility exercise:

  1. Sit on a chair and press the bottoms of your feet together.
  2. Place your hands on your abdomen.
  3. Breathe deeply to and from your abdomen, and while you breathe extend your chest upwards.
  4. Aim to lift your chest as high as possible without straining your back and maintain a relaxed facial expression.
  5. Place your feet flat on the floor and keep breathing to your abdomen and lifting your chest.
  6. Slowly twist your upper body from side to side while breathing deeply and lifting your chest.
  7. While slowly twisting, inhale more deeply (the exhales can be deep or not).
  8. After a few of these twists, lower your chest to its normal position and breathe normally.
  9. Place your hands on your knees and pull your abdomen in and hold it there while breathing normally.
  10. When you feel that your abdomen is ready to relax, take your hands off your knees.
