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.
What brings salvation?
Seeing with the heart brings salvation! Listening with ears that are open-minded brings salvation too!
Releasing mean-spirited thoughts is helpful. As is choosing to stop mean-spirited actions.
Salvation can come when the thoughts and actions align in kindness. And when the thoughts and actions align in sympathy.
Note: This blog post contains a strong message from Spirit!
(Note from Renee: I have a lot to work on.)
- Is going to the mall satisfying for the soul? No, not even to people who love shopping (even if they think so).
- Is playing game apps or watching viral videos satisfying for the soul? No, not even if the viral video is about a wonderful person.
- Is sitting at a restaurant satisfying for the soul? It can be, if you are sitting with people who are enriching, but the atmosphere at any restaurant is not enriching for the soul.
Connecting with nature is satisfying for the soul. It just is, because we were designed to be part of nature. Along the way, we lost the importance of our place in nature and we need to get it back. In general, our lives have become very cut off from nature, especially for those who live in large cities or spend too much time in cars or public transportation. There are people who work at staying connected, but they are not the majority.
How to reconnect with nature
- Plan regular hikes and actually go on the hikes. The hikes don’t have to be long, but they should be in green spaces.
- Visit parks and nature areas.
- Visit humane zoos and petting zoos. Contact with animals is an important part of connecting with nature.
- Shop at farmers’ markets and find farms that have fruit picking. And go pick fruit!
- Add more plants and potted flowers inside your home.
- Visit places with water: beaches, lakes, rivers, and springs.
- Visit botanical gardens.
Try being more connected to nature and see how entertaining it can be. And at the same time, your soul with be nourished and you will become more balanced.
Energy Guidance Complete (EGC) is communication with God.
Since the summer of 2012 when I became directly connected to God (see the post “My path to Energy Guidance Complete starts”), I referred to my source of wisdom as Spiritual Presence, and later as Spirit. In private EGC sessions when asked more details about my source, I sometimes meekly pointed upward or whispered discreetly, “God”.
Acknowledging the truth about my connection has been daunting. But now, almost six years later, I am more comfortable with the truth and my family and close friends have been adjusting to my changed life.
So now I’ve said it—my connection is with God!! From this point forward, no more skirting the truth. I am a conduit to spiritual wisdom from God!
It’s time for interactive sessions with God. We’d like to open the wisdom to the issues that concern you. Until now, we’ve focused mainly on health and balance and activities that create ill-health and imbalance.
If there are issues you would like addressed, write a reply to this post or a private message through my Contact page. I can’t predict the future, but I can provide spiritual guidance about many, many things.
The next post, which will be the first in the “Sessions with God” series, will explain the best type of stroller (pushchair) to use for an infant and toddler. I received this information a couple weeks ago when I was watching parents pushing their children in strollers. I was curious about the strollers, so I asked God about them. The information I received makes sense and it’s time to share it.
See you next blog post!
Spirit says it’s time for revelation.
There is an energy that is stirred into being by the energy that is in all living things. This energy—that runs in our bodies and in the bodies of all other creatures and in the growing vegetation—spirals into a united force that feeds into a continuously changing font of collected memory and ongoing awareness of future memory. This font is an intangible collection of spiritually charged matter. The spiraling energy enters the font, adding to its force of knowledge and energy. The font continuously collects and then returns the spiritually charged knowledge and energy back to the living creatures.
This give and take of spiritual force is the connection for the living to the font of memory of past and future. The spiritual giving from the font is felt intangibly by people in the form of the soul. The soul is the connecting link to material and spiritual existences.
The existence of the font is based on the existence of living things. The one feeds the other, and they both equally exist.
How was the font created? By a force beyond, that came from whispered existence. The whispered existence is God. God is a quiet whispering of overwhelming force that exists beyond our comprehension. We “touch” God when we open to the connection of our souls. We receive hints of spiritual greatness when we keep the communication open to our souls.
God is a real and ever existing force. Beyond us, yet connected. We are carriers of the spiritual energy that flows back and forth, back and forth.

God woke me in the night to receive this wisdom. I have previously received wisdom about the soul and connecting to God, and this wisdom is published in two books. Read “Awaiting Light: Understanding the Development of the Soul” to understand the formation of the soul and our connection to spiritual beings. Read “Faith: A Wisdom Poem Sharing Spiritual Connection” to learn a path for connecting to the power of God.
God is available when we are open to the whisper.
These truthful words about creation of spiritual connection come from a translation of the poem “Where” by Yehuda HaLevi. Yehuda HaLevi, a philosopher, physician, and poet wrote these words over 900 years ago, and they are as applicable today as they were then. When such beautiful and meaningful words are sung to equally beautiful and moving music, they can help in the ascension towards spiritual connection.
The attached picture is from a performance of the song by Diane Kaplan and her group https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlh-R9V8Mqk. I listen to its words (which are in Hebrew), close my eyes, sway, and let myself connect. Sometimes I dance the words and sometimes I simply breathe deeply while listening. They rarely fail to lift me and bring me closer to Spirit. Here is the translation on Diane’s CD “Like an Olive Tree”:
I reached out for you,
With all my heart I called for you.
And as I went out towards you,
I found you coming towards me.
God, where will I find you?
Your place is hidden high above.
And where won’t I find you?
Your honor fills the world.
Spiritual connection is available to everyone; all that is required is desire to connect. The path towards spiritual connection can be personal or through group worship. The connection can be created with the help of sacred music or with contemplative walks in nature. Each person can find a path that works. Following someone else’s path can sometimes bring connection, but the best way to connect spiritually is to breathe deeply and feel what works best for you.

The heart—a wondrous organ that focuses life!
The heart infuses life with emotion, with strength, and with direction. The heart reaches to the soul for guidance and brings the guidance in, even when soulful living has been abandoned or denied. The heart feels the connection to guardian angels, urging wisdom flow and urging sensations of comfort and support. The heart ties us to the rhythms in nature and in the spiritual realm, pulling us into the flows and into the stillness.
Refusing the heart’s functioning dulls the eyes and constrains the decisions. Without heartfelt guidance, life opens to embitterment and to loneliness. The heart infuses the senses with robustness, so that a lack of heart in decision-making or behavior skews the senses’ abilities to properly inform the mind and body. Without the heart’s input, conflict and apathy can rage.
When we lead from the heart, we live authentically! Heaviness can disappear and joy can guide our actions!
