Reaction #3 to “The health effects of the latest technologies”

Heart wise

The future holds so much promise, yet our advances—the ones that make our lives more easy and predictable—are the ones that will upend the advances’ promises of better.

The advances of “smart” technologies will create entrenched changes in people that will defy treatment. Besides the effects from the smart technologies, the lessening of joyous movement by children and the withdrawal from nature will cement the entrenched changes further.

Offering young children smartphones as playthings is the beginning of the entrenched changes. The children will be affected in the eyes, in the cardiovascular circulation, in the olfactory abilities, and in the processing of emotional thoughts. The addictive draw of the screen’s amazingness pulls from the children their natural rush to move, which will affect their spinal and muscular development. The wondrousness of the screens’ offerings will lessen the wondrousness of the natural world and the children will lose their connection to the Earth’s glory, which will affect their senses of taste, touch, and intuition.

Adults who wear the smart gadgets will have less ingrained changes than the children, but if they also reduce their movement and distance from nature, then their bodies will respond unhappily. The changes depend on age, length of exposure, and time spent with other people.

Distancing from nature and lessening of movement, when accompanied by the side effects of the latest generation of medications, will exacerbate the side effects. People who take these medications require continuous connection to nature and joyous movement to lessen the side effects.

Here ends input from God about the impact of smart gadgets and medication side effects combined with sedentary lifestyle and little exposure to nature. This response relates to the blog posts EGC sessions with God: The health effects of the latest technologies,  Reaction #1, and Reaction #2.

I am sad to be the bearer of this information, but I do hope that people will heed these messages of warning.

 

 

Reaction #1 to “The health effects of the latest technologies”

smart gadgets

IN yesterday’s blog post, we were informed that the latest technologies are causing new types of illnesses. That knowledge is distressing, to say the least.

I pushed for advice about dealing with the onslaught of external changes (like smartphones, smart watches, activity trackers, wearable computer glasses, and to-be-announced-soon footwear, that uses computer tracking).

In today’s blog post, we will receive advice from God about protecting ourselves from the latest invasive technologies. I know these new devices seem helpful and are appealing, but we’re being warned about their future bad effects, and we really need to pay attention–me too!

  1. Wearing computer devices is harmful. They disrupt the body’s functioning. The longer they are next to your bodies, the more harm they cause. Keep them at a distance. [This advice also applies to smartphone that are kept in pockets or in arm bands and other containers very close to the body.]
  2. Tracking steps is confused desireability. Knowing exactly how far you’ve walked or how many steps you’ve actually taken seems desireable, but the devices that provide this information will cause illnesses and changes in body functioning. Don’t use these devices.
  3. Placement of the devices is very important. The farther away from the body, the better. Keep smartphones in a container [backpack, thick waist pack, purse, or messenger bag]. When holding a smartphone, hold it for short periods of time. For children, no more than twelve minutes and no more than three times a day (no more than 36 minutes); for ages 20 and up, no more than fifteen minutes and no more than four times a day (no more than sixty minutes). For extended viewing of the screen, place the smartphone in a holder and don’t hold the holder.

A reminder from yesterday’s blog post: the younger the age of exposure to these devices, the more havoc created for the body. If you have young children, resist the pull to use these devices to pacify your children.

Migraines

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.

EGC sessions with God: The health effects of the latest technologies

smart gadgets

Research has begun to determine the effects of smart phones and other devices we use. The research will take time, because many of the health effects will only begin to appear in the next decade. Here’s what God has to say about the upcoming health effects:

People are creating new types of illnesses. The more they surround themselves with interference to their bodily functions, the more they change their body’s ability to know itself.

Ingested substances that replace the body’s ability to heal itself have been affecting health, and the new generation of these substances will cause changes to fundamental functioning in the body, but will not affect future generations—the changes will only be in the individual bodies.

The external changers [for example, smart phones, smart watches, activity trackers, and wearable computer glasses] will have different effects on the body, and the younger the age of initially using them, the more the changes will affect future generations. These external changers will create more tiredness syndromes, spinal pain, new forms of cancer, and cardiovascular malfunctioning. These external changers will also lower healing functioning.

Besides the effects of the ingested substances and the external changers, people who have sedentary lifestyles or have little exposure to nature will have additional health afflictions.

Health afflictions of the future will be those that are already known and new ones that will baffle the healing industry.

So everyone, there’s the information about smart gadgets’ effects on our health, with additional information about the effects of the new generation of medications, sedentary lifestyles, and lack of contact with nature.

The latest technologies are very attractive, but we have to consider their repercussions, especially on children. The next three blog posts will respond to this information with details about handling the new technologies.

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

shout

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!

CONFUSION’s physical impact

Distracting colors

Confusion fills our lives, and some of us handle it better than others. Some of us get autoimmune diseases and some of us get psychological imbalances and some of us get cancer and some of us even get suicidal. The confusion is more destructive than we realize.

What is Spirit saying here? That confusion causes our self-destruction? Spirit wants us to know the role that confusion plays in our modern lives so that we can find ways to make them less confusing.

Modern life is filled with so much confusion, and it is getting more and more confusing as we achieve additional technological and societal advances. People today have so many choices, and the choices can overwhelm in a way that eventually translates into physical harm.

Consider the confusion in the lives of modern four-year-old children. Many children have too many toys, and having to choose what to play with can be confusing. There may be too many clothes in the closet, and choosing what to wear is confusing (nonetheless, children should choose rather than their parents). The children may go to play group, day care, or kindergarten, where the staff rotates, the number and temperaments of children is in flux, the foods offered are unfamiliar, and the choices of activities overwhelm and confuse. The afternoons and evenings can be confusing too, as the children navigate the relationships in the home—short tempers sometimes, inconsistent parenting, and tiredness. Happy times can be confusing too, as they are often filled with bending of the rules and stimuli that overexcite. Exposure to the world of smartphones and computers adds a confusion that children have never had to face—a confusion that will only be understood in about thirty years.

The confusion these children face daily can lay the groundwork for difficulty with choices, anxiety, and self-doubt. These emotional responses can cause malfunctioning in the systems that protect and nurture the body. The confusion maneuvers its way into the future lives of these unsuspecting children.

As for the rest of us past the age of four, confusion has become a subtle, and not so subtle, companion. Too many choices when choosing a career path, when planning a day, when choosing mindless time fillers and when feeding our bodies, overwhelm our ability to process information. Our bodies weren’t designed for all the stimulation that comes our way on a daily basis. The overstimulation over-occurring, day after day, is confusing for the body to process. When inadequate sleep, improper nourishment and regular use of stimulants tax the body, the confusion maneuvers its way in further, causing havoc and imbalance.

The confusion is the cause of many of today’s afflictions. It’s a hard source to blame, and an even harder source to study. It’s the modern source of new afflictions. Confusion binds with the other sources of imbalance, and dynamically increases their impact.

Confusion is confusing to understand. Spirit is sharing wisdom to help us open our minds to confusion’s place in our world. I’m very surprised. How about you?

My farmers market haul

farmers market haul

Every Monday I head to the nearby, one-day-a-week, farmers market and buy beautiful produce. The vegetables and fruit I buy inspire me to prepare nutritious and delicious meals.

Today I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the produce I bought, so I arranged them on my table to take a picture for sharing. You can see how inviting the colors and shapes are (although some people might feel overwhelmed by the thought of cooking all that food!).

Before I put the produce away, I’ve separated out the orange-colored veggies to make Orange soup. The soup contains pumpkin, sweet potatoes and carrots, which provide the beautiful orange color. I’ll put this delicious and not-too-difficult recipe on my Yumtritious Eating website soon. We’ll make a spaghetti sauce full of onions, garlic, eggplant, and cauliflower (didn’t buy zucchini today). For dessert–fresh strawberries and pineapple! Yummy!!

I’ve written about the value of farmers markets in the past. See the post “Farmers’ market balance“. Buying fruit and vegetables when they are out in all their glory is so much more inspiring than buying them packaged in plastic and styrofoam. Whenever you can, head to your nearest farmers market and bask in the magic of the wonderful gifts from nature!
