Health and Happiness

Everyone has the opportunity to live a healthy and happy life, as health and happiness are both internal energy fields that make up our natural condition. Look at most newborn babies. They arrive healthy and happy in this physical world. During pregnancy, the Mother attempts to eat nutritious foods, drink good water, and breathe fresh air. These are the basic needs for each and every human to live a happy, healthy, and long life. Knowing this simple equation, we must stop and ask ourselves what happens along the living journey of our physical life. How do we become sick and devoid of energy? It is not that everyone does not eat, but the question is "What do we eat?" Do we eat processed foods that we remove from a can, a box, or some other container? Most processed foods do not have the same nutrients left in them as fresh, raw foods have. Once we understand that "we eat by choice," we will also understand that when we make good choices in our foods, we will be healthier and happier.

When we gain weight or get too thin, we need to understand that it is us that guides our hand to our mouth and makes the choices of what is in our hand. This puts obesity and malnutrition directly into our personal responsibility as our thinking about foods. No one else can ever be responsible for what we eat or don't eat, and we should never attempt to make someone else responsible for our personal eating habits. Over-eating should be called the "hand-to-mouth" disease" which we should be able to understand as our personal behavior. Not eating enough is also creating poor health habits and disease, so we need to seek an internal balance. Understanding the "why" of watching what you eat, is the beginning of change and success in being healthy, feeling wonderful, and actively enjoying our physical life.

Why do we overeat? Why do we under eat? The answers are not a simple one because every human being alive that is overeating has his/her own accumulation of reasons.  I suggest to my clients that if they are overeating they need to keep a "reason" diary. A "reason" diary is created by making a note of your motivation to eat, each and every time you put food in your mouth. Write down what you are eating, the time that you are eating, and why you feel hungry. Keep this diary for one month. Each month we will do a re-evaluation of your eating habits and begin to work on changing your habits that are not appropriate to maintain your normal weight.

The other issue with overeating is underactivity. Anytime that we begin a weight loss program it is time to reduce the amount of food that we eat, while increasing the amount of exercise that we get on a daily basis. My favorite exercise is walking and my second favorite is gardening. Plant a flower garden and watch the changes that occur in your yard and your physical body. Gardening is a very satisfactory form of exercise when we can see the results that we create. Exercise for me must mean something in my life or I will probably not stay focused on the exercise. Change your food to fresh, raw foods and you will begin to feel better, have more energy, and you can watch the pounds fall off your body. This will be a special joy to you when you find yourself putting on a new dress or wearing a suit that you have not been capable of wearing for a year or more.

The better you look, the happier you will be in your life! Go for it! Create a new you!

Our Daily Evolution

I do appreciate all of my followers on Facebook and my blog, so my purpose in today’s post is to fill in some of the blanks about who I am and get to know everyone better by hoping that others will follow my example. Tell us who you are.

I was born and raised in a small town in the Midwest, Salem, Illinois, where some of my family still live. When I was living on our farm as a child I learned how to do all of the farm chores like milking cows, feeding pigs and chickens, playing in our woods, creeks and ponds, and riding horses. When I was 18 years old and just as I graduated from High School, I moved to Indianapolis, IN where I had enrolled in a Nursing School program and I began the most important learning of my entire life. I learned what they taught me, but I learned multiple other things as well, which has served me for my long and fruitful life. My most exciting nursing position was a research position with the Navy Medical Research Institute, which I loved because of all of the information that we discovered about “us humans”in our work. In 1984 I started my second career as a writer and teacher of Spiritual Philosophy. Since then I have written 8 books of Spiritual Philosophy and I have been constantly teaching Spiritual Philosophy to all who come to my classes and to see me for “Life consults.” In the center of all my life and my work were my six children that I love dearly. They are all grown up now with their own children and we are starting on the next generations. This is the story of how life expands and we continue to learn.

Many times I have been asked why I changed careers when I did. As a Kidney Transplant Nurse with my in-depth research experience I had an opportunity to accept several jobs that were offered to me. But my research experience proved to me that we live more than one life, so I wanted to learn and experience everything that I could experience in this lifetime and I wanted to help other people learn about their past lives, and their eternal life. From the time that I was an infant I could remember other lives that I had lived. This internal memory has kept me searching within as intensely as I search externally. It has been my internal memory that is always pushing me to write more books and to make more CDs, and to continue teaching Spiritual Philosophy. I teach Spiritual Philosophy classes, which is helping other people to open their minds to us as eternal energy beings and to have more faith in themselves. I sincerely believe that we should be taught Spiritual Philosophy from our very early life.

Once we can accept that as energy beings we live eternal lives, we begin to look at the world with different eyes. Our physical death takes on a new purpose, an opportunity to create a new and healthy physical body to support our internal and eternal Dual Soul mind and emotions in their eternal growth. When we look at people from the 1500s and then we observe all of the people in history from the early years into the year that we are now living, we see the growth of the human species. We can see change in all aspects of the human species from their physical appearance, their thinking mind, loving emotions, and their Spirit Senses, which shows us that we are all living our eternal growth, and we must be personally responsible for our physical body, thinking mind, loving emotions, and Spirit Senses. We have a personal responsibility to ourselves to learn, to grow, and to change, which is my express purpose in teaching Spiritual Philosophy. Our growth is based on how well we can live the Ethical Values, which is the internal energy design (Intelligent Design!) of our mind, emotions and senses.

It is time for all of us to grow in the concept of our eternal life as energy beings, so that we can consciously take our memory with us into each new physical life time. Knowing that we are basically energy beings and that energy never dies but it does change form (Einstein) helps us to understand that when we wear out our physical body with disease or age, we, as an energy of Spirit Consciousness, are going to work with a man and woman to create a new body for us to return to a new life. This human energy is the eternal beauty of our physical life, our intellectual growth, and the growth of our loving emotions. Once we can open our thinking mind to the concept that as energy beings we are eternal, we remove the fear of death from our thinking mind, which is a challenge that many people face in living and dying. Knowing ourselves gives us the freedom to share ourselves with other people.

Research and Our Eternal Chain of Life

When I spend time looking at my life, I clearly remember some of the jobs that I have had which stand out in my mind. I worked with kidney transplant patients for many years before I became associated with the KTHS at the Naval Medical Research Lab. The Kidney Transplant Histocompatibility Study was a research program that reached out to transplant programs in the United States and Canada to follow their transplant patients with specific studies. We had many patients enrolled in the study and we were looking at the HLA and DNA of these patients to see what we could learn. We learned a lot about the value of matching the antigens when we could, but many times a patient with no matches did just as well. Once again this program helped me to fulfill my need for research. We did learn many things which are now common practice in most transplant programs. Because I have always loved research this position was precisely the type of program that I loved. My intention was to learn more than I needed to learn to fulfill my research position.

What I learned is very different than what the scientists learned, and also very different than the studies that we were doing. Most of all I learned how versatile the human body is, how it can adapt, how it can change, and always I was aware of the patients’ attitude about their medical challenges and their determination to “get well.” In each of these behaviors I was always aware of the energy in each body and how it was being affected by the mind of the patient and doctors. We were looking at transplant in relationship to the HLA and DNA, which were very important aspects of our overall research program. The more I worked and studied this program, the more convinced I became about the strength of our human body and the lessons that we are learning in our human lives. I could always see that a good transplant had to do with the chemicals that we were putting into a human body being in sync with the chemicals that were circulating already in the human body.

As I studied the genetic system, I saw things that other people did not necessarily see. I literally saw the chemical design of our eternal human life, which is the story of who we are as human beings living our eternal lives. Most of the physicians that I was working with and the rest of the research staff believed that we live only one physical life. The DNA and the HLA helped me to see the patterns of our eternal life, how our chemical pattern is changed from one life to another and how it is the same in many ways, why it is changed, and the interaction between the chemical design of us and the eternal energy of us. The chemicals that make up our internal cells also carry the internal and eternal chemical energy of us through the entire body to give us life. I could watch the chemicals create the energy and I could compare this aberration of energy (kidney failure) to the energy changes that I see when a body is overcome with cancer and is living the throes of death.

I have always eaten extremely well and do not believe in “fast foods,” because I believe in the natural foods that contain the chemicals that our body needs to give us life. Without these natural chemicals, our body cannot stay healthy and happy. Each of us is in total charge of our health and our life. The medical community as a whole does not understand the importance of eating raw from Nature as a means of sustaining our life and protecting us from disease. We can each accept personal responsibility for how we are eating, our attitude in life, our behaviors, and the emotions that we live, which creates wonders in protecting our human body and preserving our human life. The energy of our human body never dies, therefore the more we expand our human energy the more we will enjoy life and living in our eternal chain of physical human lives. Our DNA and our HLA are chemical patterns of our human life design that either give us a good body or a challenged body. We can all balance these chemical patterns that make up our human design by eating pure foods, drinking pure water, and breathing fresh air.
