Immune system decimators

headache

***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.

The second most important step in a good night’s sleep

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.

Filling this time with life-uplifting activities

renee-ein-gedi

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!

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.

Eating during the time of social distancing and isolation

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.]

A chance to see the world anew because of quarantine living

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.

Collaborative Coronavirus

[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. ]

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!

1 2 3 coronavirus

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.

Objectivity–Is there such a thing?

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.

Sizing up the competition

heart-best friend-person

In the previous blog post, “The hidden conversation of hormones“, I wrote about the hormonal information that circulates around men and women. Today, Spirit is sharing information about another aspect of hormonal communication: the hidden sizing up of “competitors” by hormonal messengers.

The hormones emit signals that extend outwards from the body, usually from the solar plexus area to the abdominal area near the bladder. These hormonal signals are intangible emissions that notify about the person’s health status and hormonal levels. The signals are picked up by other people through receptors that are located throughout the body. The receptors are aided by intuition and the senses of sight and smell.

When men are in the vicinity of other men, their receptors can usually understand the state of their “competition” without interference. When women are in the vicinity of other women, their receptors have more difficulty understanding the state of their “competition” because of the various creams and hormone changers (birth control pills, estrogen pills) that women are given.

The sizing up of competition brings awareness of choices for coupling. Visual sizing up is not as accurate as hormonal sizing up. Physical appearance has influence, but the hidden influence from the hormonal communication can affect actions even more. The hormonal information provides information about one’s standing and confidence.

There are other factors that inhibit the accurate transfer of hormonal information. These factors are new and have come about because of technology. The hormonal signals may be emitted from areas other than the area between the solar plexus and abdomen because of interference from “smart” devices that are kept too close to these areas. Smart devices that are worn constantly interrupt the hormonal signal emissions more than the devices that are used intermittently. Biologic drugs affect hormonal signal emissions and receptors. The overuse of plastics also affects the transmittal of hormonal information.

Sizing up the competition is no longer accurately accomplished in modern societies. Losing the ability to accurately compare oneself to the competition has led to misjudgment of personal awareness and of the competitions’ deliverables. Also, without sizing up the others, the natural development of connections is stopped. Some might say that this change is not a negative thing, but it defies the natural rules.

Hormonal input on our lives is. Our design is so. Allowing the hormones to give their input is wise.

Note: This information has been spiritually received.

 

The hidden conversation of hormones

males and females

As men and women circulate in society, their hormones send out information that cause heads to turn and eyes to size up others.

The intricate dance of hormones in the spaces where people mingle is formulated to produce coupling. This dance occurs at levels beyond our perception, and it is intended to push the human race onwards.

As people share crowded spaces or similar paths, their hidden conversations generate thoughts of sexual encounters and future coupling with a set partner. The generation of these thoughts change with age, but they remain until the body is too tired to take part.

The force of the hormones is powerful. It is reined in by societal restraints, but it fuels intrigue and unexplainable attractions. The force of the hormones is why people keep striving for connection.

Self-doubt, the internal killer

self-doubt

Self-doubt: a lack of confidence in one’s abilities, actions, decisions, motives, and character; a feeling of uncertainty about one’s appearance, manner, and performance; a catalyst for internal malfunction.

Self-doubt is the cause of many failures and capitulation. It fuels insecurity and non-effort. Self-doubt leads to inability to try new things or to improve skills. It has rings of effects, as a self-doubt about one thing leads to another as they circle larger and larger inside a person.

Self-doubt comes from early efforts that are mocked by others or from early efforts that cause injury or hurt feelings. It can spring from caregivers who discourage individual expression by a young child or who can’t understand a child who has a personality that doesn’t fit the family.

Internally, self-doubt meddles in the functioning of the body. It meddles with flows, secretions, and electrical impulses. It also slows or quickens processes that should be steady. Self-doubt creates stumbling blocks in life and in internal pathways. Self-doubt is a catalyst for slow erosion in the body.

To lessen the effects of self-doubt requires determination to overcome the stumbling blocks that were placed by others or by oneself. Recognizing one’s own contribution to self-sabotage is a first step, and then finding ways to overcome is next.

The effects of self-doubt can be reversed when the following things are done:

  1. Take the time to understand who you are. What are your likes and what are the things that draw you. Discover the types of views you like. Is it the beach or the hills, the desert or the flowers? Think about your senses. Do you learn visually, through trial and error, or from hearing the words? Think about your preferences in animals, colors, and sounds. In other words, learn who you really are!
  2. Consider goals you once had. Are they still relevant? Are they important to you now? If they are relevant and important, consider how to attain them and then consider actual steps. If you have completed step #1, you will be able to strive for these goals. If the goals are no longer relevant or important, take time to understand the goals that suit who you are now, and consider how to attain them.
  3. Spend time exploring your understanding of yourself, the understanding that has come from step #1. If you can build your life so that it includes your likes, the things that draw you, your sensory strengths, and your preferences, you will naturally move away from the self-doubt that was created when you were younger.

Self-doubt is a slow, steady, internal killer. It kills drive, feelings of attachment, and responsible actions. And it slowly, steadily kills the mechanisms that sustain health. Self-doubt is the killer that can be reformed, when the proper actions are taken.

Dreaded fears, a poem

No Sleep

Lurking in shadows
Lie worry and suspicion.
Double versions of
Dreaded fear.

Behind each ache.
Behind each pain.
Suspicion of illness,
Worry of death.

Dreaded fear and
Over-fretting focus.
Upstaging health,
Unsupporting well-being.

Focus on terrible
Is focus askew.
Waiting for disaster
Is waiting awry.

Constant worry
Is wasted effort.
Overshadowing suspicion
Is wasted time.

Lurking in shadows
Lie worry and suspicion.
Double versions of
Dreaded fear.

Fight or Flight Anxiety

Post 114-aiplane window

Anxiety comes from one main source: emotional emptiness. Anxiety fills in the empty spaces when the emotions are out of balance because of uncertainty about the future or because of hormonal and sleep irregularities. One cause is physiological and one is not.

In general, when the cause of anxiety is physiological (hormonal or sleep related), a response will be “flight”: flight from the problem, flight from a relationship, denial of the anxiety, or denial of responsibilities. Flight can be actual leaving (a relationship, work, or community) or distancing emotionally.

The physiologically induced anxiety is relieved through focus on the causes: changing negative sleep patterns, curtailing unnecessary activities, reevaluating shift work situations, examining a lack of human contact, elevating the importance of sleep, reorganizing reality, and prioritizing nutritional deficiencies.

In general, when the cause of anxiety is uncertainty about the future, the response will be “fight”: resistance to offers of help, resistance to inner knowledge of solutions, fighting through instigation of arguments, fighting with oneself through self-harm, fighting with others through physical blows, struggling for dominance, quarrelsomeness, or protection of position. The “fight” response can be appropriate in cases in which aggression has been understood to be the only response, but not when aggression is chosen by default.

The anxiety from uncertainty about the future is relieved by awareness of uncertainty for everyone, by belief in the ability to function without knowing the future, by accepting the cycles of life, by prioritizing nutritional balance, and by focusing on supportive relationships.

Anxiety has fight or flight responses. Other negative states have different responses. See the blog post What’s up with “fight or flight”?.

Note: This information has been spiritually received.

 

 

 

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.

Migraines have causes that are complex but worth understanding

Migraines are signs that bodily communications have been ignored, and the body is yelling for attention! The attention needed for migraines differs from the attention needed for headaches, but both are cries for relief. Relief from the medicine cabinet is usually the relief the body doesn’t like, and this “solution” is best saved for last place.

The body can suffer in many ways; however, migraines differ from other types of physical pain because they take the sufferer into a special realm of being: into “Migraineland”.

Migraineland

It’s a place that is entered suddenly or in stages, and once entered, it commands attention. Migraineland is experienced by all ages, and it is a way of living that is sometimes passed from generation to generation.

The causes that unleash the reality of Migraineland living are many, and each person lives the reality with individualized distress. Sensitivities to foods or cleansers or sounds can delineate a direction into migraine territory, so that their influence actually initiates a migraine or encourages other migraine activators to initiate migraine domination of the body.

Other migraine activators are: sleep deficiency, seasonal fluctuations, uninterrupted viewing of screens for too long, medications that produce migraine reactions, ignoring the urge to defecate, constipation, contact with poisonous substances, light (natural and artificial), daily encounters with crowded living, abrupt changes in altitude (for example, when climbing a mountain) or speed (for example, when riding a roller coaster), erratic eating, compression of spinal nerve roots in the spinal cord, inactivity of the ileocecal valve in the small intestine, and certain metals. These activators can initiate a migraine or encourage other activators to initiate migraine domination of the body.

A person’s emotional state can also initiate a migraine or encourage other migraine activators to initiate migraine domination of the body. Emotional activators are worry, sorrow, constant suspicious view of others, feeling that overwhelming sense of guilt, self-induced or externally applied pressure, and weariness and sadness from societal tragedies and events that are not directly felt but cause personal anguish.

These emotional activators initiate different types of migraines. Their appearance varies throughout a person’s life, and they prompt migraines when they have emotional control of a person’s thinking. Emotional activators are not easy to see as causes of migraines, but they are very involved in creating Migraineland.

Sometimes a child learns migraine suffering from a parent. Migraines are not genetic, but they live within mimicable behavior and adapt to lifestyle differences. The experience of a migraine is a bonding rite of passage for a parent who unwittingly teaches the child to suffer. Intergenerational suffering in Migrainelands’ clasping grasp and possessiveness belies the differences that create each person’s set of migraine initiators.

To understand migraines demands understanding consequences. Migraines build upon dysfunction in the body. Dysfunction differs in each body so that the migraines differ in presentation, which confuses healing steps.

To heal migraines requires understanding the consequences of choices, limitations, and outlook. Each person suffering with migraines creates a personal Migraineland. To prevent migraines, Migraineland must be squeezed down and not be entered. Closing down Migraineland heals the migraine way of life. Many of the causes are listed above, and dealing with them can lead to the closing down of Migraineland.

Migraines become a way of life, a way that is off the true path of living. The efforts required to let them go are sometimes confusing, but they bring relief and healing.

Note: Spiritual Presence shares this information so that the path to healing can be understood.

 

A poem about our guardian angels

Spiritual connection

Someone to Watch Over Me

Perhaps there are angels that
watch over me.
Perhaps there are twinkly-beings that
light my way.
Perhaps there are helpers that
guide my daily strivings and focus my efforts.

There are, there are, there are.

Someone to watch over me
when despair strikes
when sadness wearies
when the way is unclear
when joy is felt and calling to be shared
when excitement is felt and calling to be shown.

Someone to light my way
when the path is blurred
and the signs are missing.

Someone to guide my daily strivings
so I find my stride
and perform my best
and achieve my goals.

Someone to focus my efforts
so I see the steps
and move with ease
and grow in wisdom.

Perhaps there are angels that watch over me

Yes! There are!

There are, there are, there are.

Death at the door

ocean and boat

I’m at the age where my friends’ parents are dying. My own parents are long gone, as are most of my aunts and uncles, and a few older cousins. Conversations with neighbors often focus on retirement ideas, aging, and occasionally, on death.

Death is always at the door, but it has seemed to be a distant thing, or a fluke of a younger person dying. Tragedies have been all around, but not personally felt. Actually that’s not completely true. A dear colleague died many years ago, and so too, a close acquaintance. Those deaths were over twenty years ago, and I have learned to live without those people in my life.

Spirit is pushing me to write about death, and I ask, why? I’ve written about death before in several books. What is there new to say?

Here’s what Spirit tells me: The people who write about the connection of the dead with the living are writing truth. There are strong connections that can be felt. An openness is needed to feel the messaging, and a willingness to stay still and hear is required. The dead have apologies to impart, explanations to make, and guidance to give. The line between alive and not alive is thinner than we think. Crossing over is a natural thing.

For my friend whose father is edging towards the crossing over: hold his hand and listen for his silence. The silence will end when the crossing over takes place, and then, if you stay still and hear, the messaging may start.
