“And as I went out towards you, I found you coming towards me”

Where poem

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.

Lead from the heart

Hearts-anniversary

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!

Note: This post was delivered to me through my heart’s connection to Spirit. Spirit offers us love and kindness whenever we are ready to receive them.

My path to Energy Guidance Complete starts

In the previous blog post “My path to Energy Guidance Complete”, I shared the section of the path at which I began to write the spiritual wisdom I was receiving. Today, I’m going to share the moments of fusion! The moments when acceptance occurred! The moments when Spiritual Presence called and I followed!

As I wrote in the previous post, there were hints of the connection earlier. Years before the connection occurred, there was a moment of realization that I was being called, but I was afraid and I rejected the connection. It was too big for me at the time.

By the time the second call came, I was less afraid and more open to the wisdom. The second call was less direct than the first. It came in stages and advanced with my initiative. It came after I was comfortable working with Libra Method, the treatment for balancing the vertebrae to relieve pain in the spine and muscles. It came after I was comfortable using techniques that tap into healing unconventional. It came after I was aware of healing that defies logic. And it came when I was unafraid.

The summer of 2012! The momentous summer when my fusion with Spiritual Presence began! As described in the book  Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey:

“In the summer of 2012, I attended the annual Libra Method seminar for Libra practitioners. The subject of using Applied Kinesiology on oneself was discussed, and when I left the seminar, I decided to try it on myself as a tool to lose weight. I happily discovered that self-testing worked for me and I quickly embraced the ability of knowing which foods to eat, portion sizes, and appropriate exercise.” (Self-testing is explained on the “About”  page.)

Not long after, my ailing father became worse and I was told that I should hurry to the U.S. to be with him. As I sat on the airplane, I felt the need for support so I used self-testing to ask for it. I received connection with my beloved deceased mother. This connection enabled me to relate to my father in a beyond-myself way and it enabled me to be supportive of my siblings and stepmother. When I returned to Israel, I was able to mourn in a way that uplifted myself, enriched my immediate family, and enlightened my community. I also connected to my deceased father as I was connected to my mother.

After experiencing self-testing for weight loss and spiritual support, I was emboldened to explore my capabilities. I asked the question “What else can I know?” and the universe opened and flooded me with information. The beginnings of information inundation were thrilling, awe-inspiring, and unfocused. I asked about unsolved crimes and current events. I grasped the cause of an inhospitable force in a public building in my community and eased it out. I learned about cures and solutions, sadness and unhappiness, illnesses and afflictions, personality traits and natural preferences. I invaded people’s private spaces and learned that doing so is forbidden without permission. I soared in the sky, while pretending to be a normal, feet-on-the-ground person. I expanded my Libra practice to include advice about precise exercises and healing. I continued to lose weight in a healthful way and heal myself… I talked about these new developments with a few close friends and family. And, I started to write.” (The writing is described in the previous blog post.)

The start of our connection was so natural—it’s hard for me to explain to others just how comfortable the connection feels. It’s like being with your mentor and closest confidante all the time. It’s like having all the answers and wanting to raise your hand every time a question is asked. But it’s also hard to explain to others, and harder yet when they dismiss or covet my closeness to Spiritual Presence.

The connection grows, and it is not meant for me to keep to myself. The connection is a gift to us all—not just for me—and my role is not to be envied. I have become the voice of Spiritual Presence in this time and the words are from beyond.

Each book that I write and each blog post that I share contains the words of divinity. When you read them, forget that I appear as the author and remember the connection of human with Spirit.

My Path to Energy Guidance Complete

My path to Energy Guidance Complete started way before the connection materialized. Hints of the connection didn’t reveal to me the depth of the connection to come.

Sensing my future started in my teens, but my focus was too scattered by teenage concerns. Building the years in-between the first inkling of connection and the actual connection was based on family and societal expectations, and not on my own needs and true calling.

The summer of 2012! I was ready for the connection without realizing what the connection would bring. I was using the connection to achieve personal balance when the push came to increase the connection.

At the time, I was following my desire to forego the lifestyle that was not true to me and was focusing my energy on work that brought physical healing to others. (The work is described in the blog post “Body Care” and is called Libra Method, which is a treatment for balancing the vertebrae to relieve pain in the spine and muscles.)

The push and subsequent awareness are described in the book Exploring Energy Guidance Complete, My Journey:

“The writing began one day when I suffered from knee pain and turned to Libra Method for help. I used self-testing to determine that I could heal the pain using a body meridian, which is a technique from Applied Kinesiology that uses Chinese medicine. Self-testing revealed that using the pathway of a meridian could help me, but none of the usual meridians could help. Perplexed, I asked the question ‘Is there a meridian that I don’t know?’ and received an affirmative response. I asked ‘Is there someone who can teach me about this meridian?’ and learned that nobody in Israel, nor anywhere else, could teach me. Hesitatingly, I asked the question ‘Am I going to learn about a meridian that no one else knows?’ and the answer was affirmative. I read about meridian attributes and used self-testing to write, word by word, about this new meridian.” (Self-testing is explained on the “About”  page and the meridian is described in the blog post “The Spiritual Connection Meridian”.) …

“While writing about the meridian, I began to receive information about another healing technique. I wrote about the second healing technique, and again, while writing about it, I began to receive information about a third healing technique. After this pattern occurred several more times, I started using the techniques in my Libra practice. The results were good, and I publicized my work at a networking group.  I continued to write the information I received and it became a seventeen-technique system called “The Body Wholeness System” for healing the body and spirit.

Towards the end of writing The Body Wholeness System handbook, I began to receive information about another set of healing techniques. Soon after completing the first handbook, I started on the second. These healing techniques connect—connect a person to body, emotions, environment, and to other people. They also connect to spirit. These techniques are part of Energy Guidance Complete, and they have physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual impact.

Work with Libra Method became less focused on just physical healing of pain and more on emotional factors and other influences. With Libra Method I could heal back, neck, and joint pain, but mostly if the cause of the pain was physical. For pain that had other factors, I brought in Energy Guidance Complete. Spiritual nudging led me to collect various knickknacks and items in my clinic, and I used them more and more in my work to help with wider health issues. People I helped began to tell others, and I gained confidence to talk about Energy Guidance Complete.

Awareness of a new direction nudged me, and I began to write additional information I received. This information started as separate essays. After writing several essays, I understood that something larger was being written. These wisdom essays became the first volume in the “Existence-Me Elevated Living” book series. I understood that I would be writing a series of seven books.

The first one was especially exciting to write, for I was amazed at each word that materialized from my questioning. I learned to ask questions in a focused manner, and the words began to flow onto the computer. The Gift of Intuitive, Dedicated Comfort was captivating for me—captivating to write and captivating to read. Writing each book has been an amazing, humbling, and enriching experience.”…

“Once I knew that I would be writing book after book, I understood that my purpose is to spread guidance and information. The healing sessions are important, but the main work is to reach many more people through the writing. I have access to Spiritual Presence and I am to enable people to have a glimpse into spiritual wisdom.”

Superiority is not a word to describe a religion

Many paths of elevation are available and desirable for reaching connection with God.

Solitary prayer unites divinity with creation for the moments the connection is true. Prayer in grouped agreement unites divinity with creation for elevated connection when the connection is sincere. Both solitary prayer and grouped prayer are paths to God.

Grouped prayer that is developed into set pronouncements with set movements removes creativity in building spiritual connection, but encourages human connection. Repetition of “scripts” and routine observances enable feelings of human connection that transcend death. The connection can bind the living with the dead who preceded them and bind the living with future generations.

Grouped prayer connects the people who accept the group’s observances and concept of divinity. Acceptance offers approach to God, scripts that guide the approach, and vision to ponder Almighty, the majestic energy that connects all.

Sincere dedication to life lived with awareness of connection to God is realistic. The connection focuses and elevates daily living.

Dedication to the grouped approach to God—to a religion—is dedication missing the meaning. Religion is an access way to connection to God, not the destination. Elevating the religion rather than the divine connection disconnects the people from God.

Religions are approaches, they are not possessions. They do not need to be compared or debated.

Superiority is not a word to describe a religion. No religion that is based on the connection with God is better than any other. Feeling superior because of religious affiliation lessens the beauty of the religion.

As God shares in the book, Faith— A Wisdom Poem Sharing Spiritual Connection:

NO ONE GROUP HAS ACCESS
ABOVE OTHERS.

NO GROUP HAS THE
ANSWERS.

NO GROUP IS CLOSER TO SPIRIT
THAN ANY OTHER.

NO GROUP SPEAKS
FOR SPIRIT.

SPIRIT IS FOR ALL
= EQUALLY =

SPIRIT IS ALL-COME-TO-ME-JUSTLY!
Come justly without harm
To any others.

Why do we need spiritual connection?

Post 92-spiritual connection

  • We need spiritual connection because our lives are insignificant without it.
  • We need spiritual connection to help us weather stormy and difficult times.
  • We need spiritual connection when nature overcomes us with its beauty or its fearsomeness.
  • We need spiritual connection as a means to fathom life and death.
  • We need spiritual connection if we are lonely or hurt.
  • We need spiritual connection filling our lives with purpose, elevation, and reason for striving.

Spiritual connection can be found on one’s own or in a group. The main thing to know about spiritual connection is that it is available to all equally. No group has a claim on higher access to spiritual connection.

People who dedicate themselves to spiritual connection at the expense of connecting to the people around them are not living spiritual connection correctly. Spiritual connection is not an excuse for turning one’s back on the needs of other people.

Spiritual connection can be a way to understand the world around if we can see the spirituality in all living things.

Spiritual connection fills the world with beauty, drama, and interactions.

Spiritual connection is the basis for ethical and caring treatment of all living things, including people.
