**Living with vitality during coronavirus!!

During this difficult time of the pandemic, it is often hard to muster energy to be productive and optimistic. Many of us have lost focus or are too busy being cautious to live life fully.  Even before the pandemic, there were so many distractions that kept us from living fully and with vitality. 

What does it mean to live with vitality?  V-i-t-a-l-i-t-y! is living life in a rich sense of being. Living life with gusto and with verve. Living life with emotion—feeling the fullness of each moment as it passes into the past.

How can we live with vitality while dealing with the suffering and uncertainty of the pandemic? Here are ideas to add vitality to your daily life:

  • As much as possible, add the elements that raise your spirits. For me, it’s listening to music that makes me want to dance. Without the music, I move more slowly and procrastinate. With the music, my energy flows and pushes me to accomplish tasks and goals.
  • Eat foods that give your body energy and nourishment. Stay away from tempting foods that actually drain your energy and force your body to work harder. (Limit sugary, deep-fried, and over-processed foods.)
  • Connect to the outdoors as much as possible. If your living situation prevents you from walking far from home, take time to stand outside your door and look at the sky. The outdoors will give you energy and vitality.
  • Clean and organize your living space. The act of caring for your surroundings will give you energy if you approach the work as a special project.
  • During difficult times, be sure to breathe deeply and fill your body with oxygen. The oxygen will help your brain function and your immune system gather its forces.

Spending the effort on Your health

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!

Reaction #2 to “The health effects of the latest technologies”


Medications are such a big part of our healing paradigm that it’s difficult to receive the warning in the blog post “EGC sessions with God: The health effects of the latest technologies” that the latest generation of medications “will cause changes to fundamental functioning in the body”. The warning in that blog post refers to substances that are ingested and injected into the body.

All along, medications have brought healing and side effects. They have prevented medical catastrophes and created new versions of diseases and illnesses. They have superseded the body’s healing capabilities and inactivated many of the body’s healing mechanisms. The good and the bad intertwined in the quest to be pain-free and unencumbered by illness.

Here is advice to protect yourself and your family from the undesirable effects of medications. This information comes from the connection I have with God.

  1. Cultivate your health: sing and dance; invest in friendships and family relationships; sleep enough; pay attention to your body’s signals; smile and let yourself be relaxed; eat nutritious foods and drink simple drinks like water and nature teas.

  2. When illnesses strike, allow your body to initiate healing responses. When pain is felt, breathe deeply to allow the oxygen to assist in relaxing and tranquilizing the painful area. When diseases overtake, use natural healing techniques before turning to medical intervention. When unwellness becomes chronic, examine lifestyle choices and modify them towards well-being. When aging changes your previous abilities, open to the wisdom your body is sharing.

  3. When medical intervention is required, continue to care for your body as if it has temporarily become overwhelmed. Eat the foods that heal, sleep the amount of time that heals, distract yourself with happiness, and let your body communicate with you as much as possible.

So much healing can occur without medical intervention, but we have to educate ourselves about natural healing techniques and we have to listen to our bodies. Medications and medical procedures should be used with wisdom and awareness of their potentials for healing and harming.

Advances in the capabilities to manipulate basic body functioning are large in their ability to seem like answers, when in actuality, they can be instigators of challenges yet to come.

This reaction joins with “Reaction #1 to ‘The health effects of the latest technologies’” to assist with understanding  “EGC sessions with God: The health effects of the latest technologies”.

EGC sessions with God: Is there a way to be fit?


This question is broad and has different meanings depending on age, environment, and genetic influences. Fit at six is different from fit at sixty! Weather and proximity to nature affect fitness. Genetic predisposition to illnesses and unwellness influence fitness possibility. Birth defects affect fitness as well.

Nonetheless, this is a question I can pose to God. Is there way to be fit? Here is God’s answer:

“All animals have been designed to be functionally fit when they are well fed, well rested, and well toned. They require a home territory that is secure (to provide a place for proper rest and procreation) and challenging (to provide a place for using the instincts, intellect, and physical capabilities). Without supportive nourishment and home territory, animals will not be fit according to their design.

Humans who are nourished adequately, feel secure in their sleeping environment, have physical and mental stimulation and challenges, build comforting relationships, and listen to instinctive and internal messages, will be fit.

The ways to fitness are through satisfaction of all of those requirements. Each requirement is necessary for fitness actualization. Connection to the environment through focus on growing vegetation and concern for the other animals can overcome deficits of fitness and can contribute to life quality.

Fitness is a worthwhile pursuit for humans. It is a natural pursuit.”

When we are fit, we are living the design!

Cell health


Our cells require three things: a supply of readily-integratable food (broken down for the cells), “sleep”, and life force. Let’s look at each of these required components of cell health.

Life force

Life force is the desire to live, but it’s more than that. Life force includes the heart’s ability to pump blood—even when a person is brain dead! Life force has the ability to grow a person from infancy to old age, to sustain survival even when the body is encumbered by birth defects or genetic deviations, to withstand overwhelming environmental conditions, and to sustain life when the physical body is ready to give way but the person desires life.

Life force is incredibly powerful and stubborn.


Cells rejuvenate and restructure continuously, but their work is mainly accomplished during periods of rest. The rest periods slow other bodily functions so that rejuvenation, restructuring, and recycling of cells can take place unhindered. Without regular resting cycles, the cells cannot function normally and they are opened to miscalculation.

Cell miscalculation can lead to cancerous growths, stunted growth, and health afflictions.


The cells require nourishment. The more nutritious the foods taken in, the better the cells accomplish their tasks. Foods that are devoid of nutritional value add filler to the cells.

Chronic subsistence on foods that have little to no nutritional value make the cells sluggish and open them to stunted growth, diseases, compromised protective functioning, and mutations.

Cell support

The best ways to support the cells are to strive for balance in lifestyle and to strive for emotional satisfaction. Balance is the key to keeping the cells “happy”. Occasional late nights and non-nutritious foods are not too destructive.

The cells build and sustain our bodies. The more we appreciate them and their wondrous work, care for our bodies and build emotional connections, the better our cells can support us and give us quality service!

Strengthening the heart


In yesterday’s blog post, we received information about the heart: about its intangible aspects and its connection to our soul, our guardians, and the world beyond us.

For the heart to partake in these important objectives, it must be strong and its health must be supported. Here are the ways to keep your heart strong for its physical work and its intangible aspects. (The intangible and physical are equally important.)

  1. Know that social connections keep your heart strong. They can’t mend a heart with physical defects, but they can encourage its daily functioning. Seek out opportunities to interact with others and eschew too many solitary endeavors. We are social animals. That’s part of our design.
  2. Yes, physical activity is important. It truly is. Build physical activity into your daily routines. We are meant to move. That’s part of our design.
  3. Breathe deeply. As often as possible. The deep breaths condition the heart and exercise it.
  4. Eat “heart-healthy” foods and eat them in an atmosphere of health. Whole foods are so much better than processed—there is no competition. (The processing of foods is human endeavor misguided.) Eating on the run, in a car, or in sadness taxes the heart. Eating is meant to be a process that buoys the heart with gratitude and fortification.
  5. Smile as much as possible. Smiling resonates throughout the body and calms the heart. To smile more, look for the positive things in your life—and there are many—and smile at them.

Our hearts keep the blood flowing and the life meaningful. Love and care for your heart, and it will reward you. 🙂  🙂  🙂  🙂

Flatulence: an affliction to be medicated or a communication device


Many products are available to combat this affliction that is not an affliction, but a communication device. The emission of gas from the anus is the body’s conversation about digestion.

When the body has taken in too much food to comfortably digest, has ingested foods that are harmful to the digestive process, or has experienced too much movement during the digestive process, the body communicates its difficulty by releasing gas, among other reactions. The gas that is released can be odiferous if the digestive process encounters components that create odors which are malodorous.

The odors can be considered to be problematic, but actually, they are not important. They signify digestive functioning. Other reactions, such as abdominal pain or nausea, are the reactions that indicate digestive disturbance.

Avoiding foods that are thought to create noxious flatulence is not the way to combat flatulence. These foods can be nutritious and usually do not cause problems unless they are eaten on the run, at an overly excessive meal, or with other foods that cause digestive problems.

When a meal is overly excessive, the body reacts with force. There might be abdominal pains, spasms, or nausea. Reflux or diarrhea can occur. Burping and flatulence might accompany the other symptoms of digestive unhappiness. The release of gas is not a worry like pain, but it should be heeded because it is saying “Hey, that last meal was too large!” or “Hey, the food you just ate isn’t right for you!”. The gas notifies about problems, but is not a problem.

When a meal is eaten on the run or too quickly, air intake is increased and is released through burps or flatulence. The body might also experience pain or discomfort, depending on the foods eaten. Flatulence after eating too quickly is saying “Hey, slow down!”. Flatulence while eating on the run is saying “Hey, stop eating!”. The gas releases its message and does so insistently.

When foods are eaten that are harmful to the digestive process, the body reacts in many ways. It can slow or inactivate the digestive processes. It can overreact or convulse. It can speed processing to rid itself of the harmful substances. It can instigate bodily processes that are secondary to the digestion. It can underreact if the body is weak or stressed. It can change the digestive processing to protect itself.  It can change the digestive processing to deprive itself as a protective reaction. The flatulence that occurs in any of these reactions is saying “Stop!”. The gas sputters its message and insists.

Society deems flatulence to be a to-be-avoided situation that requires suppression and apology. The age of the person influences the embarrassment level. Children become embarrassed as they are taught that flatulence is bad. Learning to apologize when gas is passed is taught to children at a young age. Rather than learning to understand their body’s reactions, they learn to reject them.

Apologizing for passing gas, burping, and smelly bowel movements is normal behavior. Interpreting the causes of these natural bodily responses is only done by holistic practitioners who understand their relevance. All these communication emissions—the gas and the bowel movements that are overly noxious—have meaning about digestion. Rather than downplay them, they should be appreciated and investigated.

The feeling of air collecting at various places in the body activates the senses of internal movement and reaction. If the foods eaten were nutritious, well-processed (chewed thoroughly and digested efficiently), and absorbed, the body releases gas as a byproduct of the processing. These gases usually bring a sense of completion and are usually odorless.

If the foods eaten were unwanted by the body—toxic, excessively consumed, or busily eaten—the body releases gas as a signal of discomfort and struggle. These gases release acid and tension that usually produce unpleasant odors and sensations.

Excessive consumption that is repeated day after day increases the amount of gas the body produces. As the body acclimates to overconsumption, the foods consumed more strongly instigate reactions. There are more incidents of abdominal pain and disturbances that disrupt functioning. Excessive consumption influences other bodily reactions, which in turn, affect flatulence. The intake of air adjusts to the influenced bodily reactions, resulting in more gas and more odiferous flatulence. This flatulence is indicative of troubled digestion, altered respiration, and normal functioning that is exaggerated. This flatulence is not problematic, but it does message the fact that the body is distressed.

Flatulence increases when eating is rushed. The hurried swallowing of food adds air into the digestive system that is more than would be taken in when the food is eaten at a relaxed pace. The rushed feelings not only influence physical digestion, but also affect emotional and sensitivity well-being. The rushed chewing and swallowing send food pieces that require extra processing to the stomach, which handles them by churning energetically. The extra churning, together with the extra air, produce flatulence that is not necessarily malodorous, but is harder to control. This flatulence tends to escape suppression because it is too forceful. Rushed eating also increases discomfort in the abdominal area that requires time to stop. The more rushed the eating, the longer the time required by the organs to perform their tasks.

Besides the problems associated with rushed eating, too quickly eating foods that disturb digestion can make the organs sluggish and lead to chronic abdominal problems. When toxic or harmful foods are consumed too quickly, the body has to respond quickly, but then returns to its pre-crisis state in waves of relaxation that add to the release of gas. The waves of relaxation increase the amount and force of the flatulence.

The flatulence from rushed eating, harmful foods, and overeating is strongly felt in the body and is usually malodorous. This flatulence has the potential of being prevented by slowing the pace and chewing the food thoroughly. There will still be flatulence because of the over-consumption of harmful foods, but it will be less forceful.
