Where do thoughts come from?

We think thoughts throughout the day without giving thought to where they come from. Where do thoughts come from?

Our thoughts come from processes within our brain and within other organs that work together to store memories, invoke instinctive understanding, and imagine unknown. The processes have tangible and intangible elements, so that they are hard to grasp.

It would appear that tackling the tangible elements would be an easier starting point, but that is not the case. The connection of brain to thought processing is complex and fragmented.

Instinctive understanding resides within the skin and within the pancreas. This understanding is transmitted to the brain together with nerve impulses and  non-tangible energy flow. Memory processing involves the brain with the blood flow and the synapses. This processing is a full body effort, with “storage” spread differently, depending on physical attributes and body mass. Imagination and its ability to move beyond intellectual barriers is brain-centered, but it receives nudges and ideas from connection to the universe.

With all that in mind, where do our thoughts come from?

They come from the flowers and the trees, and the four-legged critters and the ones that fly. They come from examining our fingers and our toes and from hearing the words of others. They come from touching the ground and staring at the sky, and from considering the wonder within us and the magnificence around. Our thoughts come from living with curiosity, which comes from the spleen and the movement of bones. Thoughts seem to appear, but in reality they are formulated in the brain with input from those who came before and from the body parts mentioned earlier. Our thoughts are our own, but they move in a realm that is beyond our physicality and our mortality. Our thoughts bind us to the humans before us and the ones to come. Our thoughts make us human.

This information is presented with guidance from Spirit and input from some who lived before. It is open for scientific exploration for those who choose to understand the wonder!

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: negative sense of self

The last group of blog posts has focused on the negative aspects of the sense of superiority. Personally I have found these posts to be challenging, because I have had to confront my own prejudices and ingrained sense of superiority.

My actions have been influenced by my society’s treatment of me, but I had chosen to accept preferential treatment without questioning the justice of it. Preferential treatment has been habit-forming and I now have to choose to break the habit. Not so easy!

With superiority comes a sense of deservedness, and with the sense of deservedness comes the sense of expectation that others will serve, and with the sense of expectation that others will serve comes the expectation that authority will be recognized, and with the expectation that authority will be recognized comes the insecurity that undeservedness underpins authority, and this sense of insecurity pushes the drive for feeling superior. The core of superior sense of self is inferiority, a negative sense of self.

Looking over the possible reasons for feeling “superior”: nationality, financial security, gender, race, religion, social status, physical attributes, intellectual gifts, athletic prowess, and celebrity—the sense of superiority can feel inevitable. In actuality, it is a choice that can be rejected or embraced.

The sense of superiority is a negative sense of self that requires eradication. Letting go of the sense of superiority should be a societal priority that each person can pursue individually and as members of a just and caring society.

The various causes of superior sense of self are presented in these blog posts:

Undeserved Superiority

Here is an important message from Spirit.

Superiority is a strange phenomenon. All people are similar, and yet, there are some who consider themselves superior. These people believe that race membership, financial position, gender affiliation, nationality, and/or education entitle them to raised social status. Physical attractiveness, athletic prowess, and fashion taste are other factors in people acting superior.

Religious superiority is the most destructive belief of all. No religious group has closer connection to God than any other. No group!

The sense of superiority is distancing and it clouds judgment when interacting with others. The sense of superiority tarnishes dialogue and creates contempt. As people distance, misjudge, and condescend, they define a society that is uncaring and disconnected. Such a society cannot nurture its member or provide empathy.

Spirit is clear that a sense of superiority is wrong thinking about oneself and others.

There are a few exceptions when the superiority comes from care for the environment. Everyone who puts their own needs below their care for the environment deserves to feel good about their actions. Focusing on care for the environment has no connection to race, religion, gender, nationality, financial position, physical attractiveness, athletic prowess, or fashion taste.

Respect for the environment unites us all!

Generalizations about Good Health


The importance of eating well, exercising, and sleeping enough are well known. Here are reminders about steps towards good health.

  • Sitting at a table while eating improves digestion. Eating while cooking, while moving, and when driving do not.
  • Each person determines the amount of water that is right for him or her. Time of day and season influence. So do age and stress.
    • Everyone should drink water when they arise.
    • Young people need more water than old people.
    • Seasonal considerations for drinking water: shorter daylight (in winter months) requires less water than longer daylight (in summer months).
    • Warm water is better than cold water when the body is tired. It is also better when the immune system is stressed physically or emotionally.
    • General guidelines for water consumption can be considered when determining amounts of water to drink, but the variables listed here should also be considered.
  • By breathing deeply, the body handles emotional changes better. Whenever emotional turmoil occurs, deep breathing and water can help regulate the turmoil.
  • The requirements for movement depend on food consumption, personality, attention capabilities, and seasons.
    • Eating the amount of food the body needs fuels the appropriate amount of exercise based on the three other variables.
    • More movement is required by people who are high energy personalities.
    • The environments in which focus is required add or subtract from movement needs: focus during physical work uses extended expenditures of movement; focus during sedentary work pressures muscles and elimination processes to accelerate reminders to use them.
    • Variations in temperature influence the body’s push towards movement.
  • Activity in the body during sleep is different from activity during awake time. Both types of activity are equally important, just different. Sleep should be scheduled and should be evaluated for appropriateness to age, habitat, and season.

One step at a time–a step towards proper nutrition, a step towards proper sleep, and towards proper breathing–step by step leading to good health and satisfaction!
