We can lessen the possibility of being sickened from flu viruses if we do at least five of the following things:
- Sleep the proper amount for your body. The body requires enough sleep to fortify against invading germs. A weary body struggles against powerful flu viruses.
- Breathe protectively. Shallow breathing cannot supply oxygen like deep breathing. The more rhythmic and deep the breathing throughout the day, the more the body can withstand flu vitality.
- Create music or listen deeply to music during the winter season. Music has a protective effect on our bodies.
- Wear clothing that protects. Don’t wear clothes for warm weather in the winter. Don’t overdress in overheated spaces. Don’t over-shiver (shivering is a normal reaction to cold, but over-shivering means the shivering has gone on for too long or the intensity of the cold is too much for your body).
- Food: eat cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, radish, cabbage, cauliflower, arugula, etc.), parsley, lemon, orange-colored vegetables (carrot, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, etc.), pomegranate, mulberries, buckwheat, garlic, blackstrap molasses, kombu seaweed. Eat a reasonable amount of food each day. Too much food taxes the body’s defenses. Too little food lowers the body’s resistance.
- Stay hydrated throughout the day. The body can flush out flu viruses when fluids are flowing optimally. Water is the best hydrator, followed by barley tea and parsley juice/tea.
- Stay active. Keep exercising and moving throughout the winter months.
- Stay away from people carrying a flu virus. The easiest way to spot a carrier is to notice their vitality. People carrying a flu virus that is transferable have given their vitality to the virus. (By the time carriers have the flu symptoms, they may have already passed the virus on to others, so looking for lack of vitality is an early clue to virus protection.)
- Stay optimistic, which offers protection from many types of germs.
- Aim to feel content, which also offers protection from many types of germs.

There are headlines about the problems with vaping and the unknown consequences of vaping, especially by young people. I read that vaping is too new to know the consequences, so I decided to ask Spirit for a prognosis.
Here is what Spirit is sharing:
There are other problems as well, and this table is not exhaustive.

Our bodies are so wondrously composed that to question their capabilities is silly. Our bodies beat out rhythms that move us upwards and forwards. They protect us and guide us when we listen. And they constantly communicate when we are open to listening. People who listen to their bodies recognize hints of illness and shouts of desire. The hints lead to proper care and the shouts lead to connections.
People who don’t listen to their bodies require wake up calls and intervention from experts (who don’t know them).
The body, in its exquisite design, is capable of pushing towards movement, of pushing towards sleep, of pushing towards satisfaction, and pushing towards wellness. The key to tapping into the capabilities is to feel what’s happening, what’s really happening: Are the eyelids drooping? Are the bones tightening? Is the stomach grumbling, and is it quiet when the foods eaten are nourishing? Is the heart feeling joy or is it sad? Is the time to drink water now, and am I drinking water (and not a carbonated beverage)? Am I noticing the signs of illness and am I slowing my pace? Is this my third cold this season, and what does that mean? Have I enjoyed the company of people I love and have I shared my love with them? Is now the time to reach spirituality, and can I be open to new ideas? When will I open my mouth to say what I need, and when will I use my wisdom to advance the welfare of the community? More and more hints on how to proceed in life.
By standing up for the body—by recognizing its gift that is guidance—we can live with wonder and satisfaction. The way we are designed!

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.
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!
- 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.]
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
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”.
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.
