The Art of Patience

Patience 263x235Patience is a virtue. Patience is the ability to tolerate delay without frustration. Those with patience are able to remain calm and avoid impulsive action when faced with challenges. Being impatient has little to offer. The line at the store is impervious to your thoughts and emotions. If you’re stuck, you may as well enjoy yourself.


Patience is beneficial to your health, happiness, relationships, and goals. Impatience is costly.

Benefits of Patience

Consider these important benefits to having patience:

  1. It’s easier to be happy when you’re patient. Impatient people are not experiencing positive feelings. Having patience reduces stress and anxiety. Challenging situations are more manageable when the situation can be approached with patience.

•  Has being impatient ever benefited you?

•  How do you feel when you’re impatient? Are you stressed? Happy? Uncomfortable?

•  Are the patient people you know more or less happy than the impatient people you know?

2.  Patient people are healthier. The stress that impatient people feel is hard on the mind and body. Those that feel less stress suffer from fewer medical issues. Heart conditions, ulcers, and many other health conditions are made more serious by stress. You can potentially live longer and enjoy yourself more if you’re patient.

3. You can accomplish larger goals. Big goals require time. Time requires patience. Big goals are impossible without some measure of patience. Consider how your impatience has short-circuited your success in the past.

4.  Some things are outside your control and patience smooths the journey. Overcoming an illness or injury can’t be sped up by sheer will or impatience. A pregnancy requires a certain amount of time. Getting over a personal loss or tragedy takes time. Losing several pounds can’t happen overnight.

5.  You’ll make better decisions. Impatient people don’t take the necessary time to make wise decisions. Impatient people are stressed, and stressed people tend to be impulsive. Patience provides the time and space to contemplate the situation and make a wise decision.

•  Make a list of the times when impatience has cost you. Consider your personal relationships, work, and finances. Impatience leads to poor decisions. Remind yourself of those times you’ve made your life more challenging by being impatient.

Developing Patience

It’s possible for anyone to develop patience. Follow these steps:

1.  Set short goals. For example, attempt to spend the next hour being the most patient person you’ve ever known. Avoid letting anything bother you during this period of time. Extend the time as you’re able.

2.  Pause before everything you say and do. Do you want to get off the couch and raid the refrigerator? Make yourself wait 15 minutes. Are you ready to interrupt a conversation to make yourself heard? Wait until the conversation has concluded before speaking. Slow down and practice patience at every opportunity. The average day will provide plenty of practice!

3.  Determine when you’re least patient. When do you find yourself unable to control yourself as well as you’d like? Focus your attention on these trouble spots. Aim for slow, steady progress. Avoid expecting perfection or making too many demands on yourself. Slow and steady wins the race.

4.  Notice your thoughts when you’re impatient. What do you think about when you’re feeling impatient? Notice your thoughts and change them. You can choose to think about anything you’d like, so think about something that encourages you to be patient.

Patience is a character trait worthy of cultivation. Many confuse patience with weakness or passivity. But patience is an intelligent reaction to a situation that’s outside the realm of control. Impatience can be unhealthy, create additional challenges, and make you miserable in the process. Take time to learn how to add PATIENCE into your life so you can enjoy and accept the…………..

Chemical Free Stress Relief


Chemical free stress  relief has been found through recent developments and studies in Cognitive Behavioral Psychology. These findings have resulted in using several new chemical-free approaches to the problem of stress. Behavioral Psychologists have long treated anxiety, phobias and other psychological conditions which are characterized by increased autonomic stimulation. The sweaty hands, dry mouth, cold feet, tense muscles and accelerated heart rate of the fearful flyer and anxious dental patients are familiar physiological manifestations of the anxiety response.

Non-Traditional Therapy CollageBy using a chemical free stress relief approaches a person learns to reduce their anxiety, they also learn how to lower their blood pressure, slow down their heart rate, reduce the tensions in their muscles, and increase the blood flow to their extremities and in other ways control the activity of their autonomic nervous system.

When a person learns to control their autonomic nervous system, is the first step in learning how chemical free stress relief works. When you learning how to recognize and control stress plays a big role in the effectiveness of using the chemical free approach.

Many if not all stress related and psycho physiological disorders involve automatically innervated organs, and consequently many psychosomatic disorders have been demonstrated to be amenable to stress reducing behavioral procedures.

Biofeedback, hypnosis, deep muscle relaxation and other methods have been used to treat migraine headaches, muscle spasms, essential hypertension, P.V.C., angina, spastic colon, Raynard’s syndrome, sympathetic reflex dystrophy and many other physical disorders associated with sustained autonomic stimulation.

Chemical free stress relief  took on new importance as studies began to indicate that disease processes such as diabetes, arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular diseases and other physical disorders might be manifestations of chronic sustained autonomic activity.

It is no longer enough for health care professionals to simply educate patients about stress. It has become necessary to develop practical methods of controlling and reducing stress. Methods which involve including a client participation in his/her own treatment and recovery, along with chemical free approaches.

Methods which utilize the power and success of techniques such as classical conditioning, hypnosis, biofeedback , energy work and cognitive behavior therapy are all chemical free approaches found to be successful in relieving stress.

REFLEXOLOGY, a chemical-free therapeutic approach, using cognitive behavioral techniques has been in use around the world for many years. Initially used in the offices of Health Care Professionals and Clinics, REFLEXOLOGY therapy is now available to the general public.

Reflexology Collage-updated
REFLEXOLOGY therapy employs the power of touch that stimulates the nerve endings through the hands and feet to induce a therapeutic relaxation response which reciprocally inhibits sympathetic autonomic stimulation. It is a classical conditioning procedure,of  counter conditioning stress with a relaxation response that can be physiologically incompatible with stress.

A Reflexology therapy session consists of lying in a recline chair with soft music and aromatherapy fragrances as a Reflexology practitioner works on your hands and feet. By incorporating this technique pain and stress becomes ‘Psycho-Active’. It creates a psychological process which actively conditions and reinforces the relaxation response by releasing the body’s natural pain and stress relief “endorphins”.

REFLEXOLOGY therapy may be used to reduce stress in Dental Offices, waiting rooms, airplanes and in other situations where stress is encountered. It provides effective relief from muscle tension, anxiety, agitation, pain and insomnia. Reflexology is known as an effective therapy for low back pain, tension headaches, hypertension and other stress related disorders. Reflexology is seen as the bridge that connects non tradition healthcare with conventional medicine.

The Dumbing Down Of American Children

Capture-Mind Control 380x561The average American child has experienced mind control through emotional domination known as the “dumbing down crisis” (ddc). Mind control is done by parents, school system, legal system, the media and medical system.

Because mind control is so engrained in our society, parents and the people involved in these systems, unknowingly are the major contributors to the problem of youth violence as we are now experiencing. They do not support or care about children.They only see a child as a “pawn” for what they want.

When you no longer see a child as a human being is what makes mind control so easy to use as a tool of manipulation and control. Once the mind is controlled you now have a “robot and slave”,who acts and does what you want them to do. The flip side is you now have a child who is filled with suppressed feelings of anger, hurt and pain.

When you steal a child’s mind you deprave them of the ability to grow and develop mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. This crisis involves a never-ending stream of contrived mental and emotional incidents designed to disrupt a child’s ability to think and feel.

When the mind of a child is mentally confused the ability to connect time with events is lost, along with being able to remember past incidents or to be able to think with reason and logic. These children are mentally controlled by emotions and fear.

This tactic is often used by parents and the supportive systems involved in single parenting, divorce and custody. The psychological bombardment of guilt, blame and harassment is a never ending mind control cycle that sits the stage for mental health abuse and trauma known as youth violence. You cannot contain suppress feelings of anger, hurt and pain without having a positive outlet for a child to mentally and emotionally release.

The sad reality about emotional domination known as the “dumbing down crisis” (ddc) in the minds of a child, the past is erased and the future is non existent. The only experience a child knows is what is happening to them right now. When this is all a child has and knows the only support they have is usually a negative one that involves hurting themselves or someone else.

This is how the foundation has been laid for the youth violence that has been created by a society that does not care about “what’s in the best interest of a child“.

You may be saying now who would do such a thing to a child. The answer lies in this statement “What does the life of a child mean to me?”. The problems we are facing today as it relates to children is a reflection on”how we treat children and what we think about children”. We can see constant proof in the media on youth violence.

It is so often said that a “mind is a terrible thing waste”. When adults learn how to recognize that the mind of a child is a valuable and precious jewel that needs to be cherished and protected is the best defense in the war against mind control and the dumbing down crisis of children.

Now that you know about mind control and DDC are you willing to stand up for children who will be our future leaders, healers and teachers?

Youth Generation 160x82There is a child in your life who wants to just be a child having fun and being happy. It you can take a moment and remember you were once a child and now as an adult it is your responsibility to give a child some TLC (Tender Loving Care).

In conclusion I leave you with this thought, the child you save is your only investment for when you become a senior citizen.

Do unto a child as you would do for yourself

Business Success  and Falling In Love Affair

Business success has many variables. One variable that is especially important is your attitude. Many challenging situations will arise over the course of your business life and a positive approach can sustain you longer than you might think.

Love My BusinessWhat is a positive attitude all about? It is not just seeing the silver lining in every dark cloud, but also being able to see the possibilities in each situation. These possibilities may not always be to your liking but they could be in the best interest of the business. You don’t relish building a profile on every social networking site, but you know doing so can increase business contacts and maybe even sales.

Why do you make the tough decisions? Simply put, you love what you do. The love of money will be given serious second thoughts when sales fall like rain. How about that first grouchy unsatisfied customer? He or she will be a test of wills for anyone.

Part of going into business for yourself is to make a difference – in your life, in the world and in your family. All of these dynamics play into your attitude towards your business when things are not going so well. Is it time to pull up stakes or dig in your heels?

With the right frame of mind and a positive attitude, you will choose the latter. Tough times mean reevaluating your priorities. If you still believe in your product or service, you will do what you need to do so it doesn’t disappear.

Love is infectious, even in business. Your winning attitude will motivate you, staff and family to pitch in wherever they can. It might be making dinner so you can work longer hours through the week on business tasks. The trade off can be more family time on the weekends.

Staff will do what you need them to do when their efforts are appreciated. Employees who feel valued work harder and more effectively to get the job done. When you win, so do they. Keep in mind being appreciated doesn’t ALWAYS mean giving them more money either. Things like an email telling them what a good job they are doing, rewarding them with time off, and even giving them an opportunity to learn more are all great ways to show your staff you value them.

Loving what you do means that you won’t just sacrifice the business for quick fixes to problems. To remain successful, only solutions with the future in mind will do. The tough decision here could be passing up a deal that would hurt you down the road even if it temporarily increased business revenue right now.

A positive approach doesn’t make everything rosy, but it does help to make things bearable for the moment. You’ll be able to see the big picture when you open your mind. Any challenges and demands can then be met with grace and fortitude. Loving what you do plays a major role in business success and longevity.

The real key to being of service and living your purpose is simply to do what you LOVE to do whatever it may be ~ Rebecca Fine

Sisterhood Has Power

A young woman sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting with an elderly woman. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood, the elderly woman stirred the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon the young woman.

Women Collage3“Don’t forget “Sisterhood” she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass. It is the fellowship among women that is more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you may have, you are still going to need woman fellowship. Remember to go to places with them now and then; do things with them.’

‘Remember that “Sisterhood” means ALL the women…your girlfriends, your daughters, and all your other women friends and relatives too. ‘You’ll need other women. Women always do.’

What a funny piece of advice!’ the young woman thought. Haven’t I just gotten married? Haven’t I just joined the couple-world? I’m now a married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup! Surely my husband and the family we may start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile!’

But she listened to the elderly woman. She kept contact with her Sisters and made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that the elderly woman really knew what she was talking about.

As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sister fellowships are the mainstays of her life.After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I’ve learned:


  • Time passes
  • Life happens.
  • Distance separates.
  • Children grow up.
  • Jobs come and go.
  • Love waxes and wanes.
  • Men don’t do what they’re supposed to do.
  • Hearts break.
  • Parents die.
  • Colleagues forget favors.
  • Careers end.

AND……… There’s Power In Sisterhood

Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you. A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley’s rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley’s end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you…Or come in and carry you out. Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers, Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn’t be the same without women, and neither would I. When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still. Remember to do something special today that will empower and up lift another woman.

What makes or breaks a woman is not what people think of her,but what she thinks of herself ~ Seyi Eyiayo

Happiness Can Save Your Life

Happy FingersIt is a known research fact the Happiness can LITERALLY save your life!
Here are a few good facts about happiness and how your life is depended upon it.

Happier people LIVE longer and healthier lives
In a study with over 2,800 men age 65 and older, those who tested higher on positive emotion were HALF as likely to DIE and HALF as likely to experience disease…. This is awake call

creating-wealth-1Happier people make more money and set bigger goals
In a study with 272 people, happier people received better evaluations from supervisors and higher pay. In another study, both children and adults who were induced into positive moods (by watching happy movies or looking at positive images) selected higher goals, performed better, and persisted longer than those who were not in a good mood….. A key to living a more productive life.

Happier people have more fulfilling relationships
In a study with 222 college students, those who were considered “very happy” spent the least time alone, the most time socializing, and were rated to be in fulfilling relationships by their friends and self….. These are people who really connect with live human beings not on the internet.

Happier people have better sex
Yes, it’s true! There are studies that support this…..when you are happy sex is good, what can I say.MC900444678[1]

Happier people are happy!
This is the truth about life, when you are happy you live each day to its fullest enjoying every minute of it. Now, isn’t this what life is really all about. Experiencing happiness is what makes life worth living.

Somehow we forget that. We forget that our mission in life should be to make ourselves happy. Some think that pursuing happiness is selfish. Some think it’s impractical. Some think it’s soft. But it’s not. And best of all, when you’re happy – you make the world happier.

“Success and Happiness is feeling it in your heart not thinking about it in your mind” ~ Njideka Olatunde

Stressed Out In The Workplace

Being placed in situations that demand the impossible almost inevitably lead to stress. Unrealistic deadlines to meet useless goals, enforced by unreasonable managers – are an all too common scenario. But individuals who find themselves in such circumstances still have options.CSPX3983C
There are a dozen small, stress-relieving exercises that can help ease the symptoms while working toward the long-term cure. Stress produces a number of well-documented physiological effects like muscle tension, shallow breathing and compromised immune system. To combat these, you can take direct action.

Take a few deep breaths, slowly. No need to go into some kind of Zen state, just allow yourself to expand the chest and relieve tension around the center of the body. Stretch the arms and shoulders. Gently work the head from side to side. Flex the calves.

Take a few minutes to work on your mental processes as well. Stress often inhibits the ability to focus or concentrate effectively. It decreases memory retention on needed items because the irritation causes focus to shift to the fact of being angry.

Deep Breathig_thumbnail.aspx

While you’re breathing deeply, close your eyes and meditate for a couple of minutes. Again, that doesn’t require any form of deep relaxation, just a moment to let the external world go. At the same time, you don’t want to focus solely on the anger or stress you’re feeling. Focus on an internal image of something pleasant – a child’s face, the family dog, a great golf swing, anything that works for you. Now that you’ve tackled the symptoms, go after the roots of the problem.

Many choose to start their own businesses. That choice brings with it a whole new set of challenges, but the overarching benefit is the freedom to meet them. You’ll find yourself working long hours with little recognition. But, even in the absence of large external rewards, the internal rewards – the satisfaction, the feeling of being the ‘commander of your own ship’ – is frequently cited as a major incentive for those who keep trying.

Many others will try to work for positive change within their current organization. Even when those efforts are only partially successful, individuals report that they gain satisfaction from the knowledge that they are not simply accepting their unpleasant fate passively.

You can make efforts to transfer to another job within the organization, or look forward to the day when that unreasonable boss will have moved on. Remember, very few things in any company stay the same for more than six months to a year.

While you’re waiting for better circumstances, focus on the process less than the results. Keep a realistic attitude about what is and what is not within your control. Try not to let the latter matter very much. Seek out the cooperative individuals in the company and don’t burden yourself with trying to change the others.

By all means, let off some steam to trusted friends and family members outside work. At work, stay focused on the task.

Healthcare and disease are two very challenging concerns that many families are facing. The stats for the following healthcare illness is quite alarming.

Defined Illness ChartCardiovascular disease

  • According to the American Heart Association, approximately 1 million American adults die annually of heart attack.
  • An estimated half million Americans suffer strokes annually, thirty percent of which result in death.


  • According to the American Cancer Society, 1 out of every 3 Americans (more than 86 million Americans alive today, will get cancer
  • 1.35 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year
  • 538,000 Americans will die of cancer this year.


  • Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in the US.
  • According to the Arthritis Foundation, 40 million Americans have arthritis
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control, by 2020, 59.4 million Americans will have arthritis.


  • According to the American Diabetes Association, 16 million Americans have diabetes
  • 800,000 diabetics are insulin – dependent
  • 400,000 people die each year from diabetes
  • Each year 625,000 new cases of diabetes are diagnosed.


  • According to national health statistics, 62 percent of Americans are overweight
  • Many are obese, exceeding recommended weights by 25 percent or more.

Alzheimer’s disease

  • According to the Alzheimer’s Foundation, 4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease
  • 14 million Americans are expected to have Alzheimer’s by the year 2050
  • One in 10 persons over 65 develops Alzheimer’s
  • 50 percent of those over 85 develop Alzheimer’s.


Faced with the magnitude of ineffective healthcare and an increase in many diseases has resulted in the conventional medical system not being prepared to provide any solutions to address the problem.

Health care in the U.S. is currently in crisis mode and many people have lost confidence in medicine. Medical services are expensive, and insurance is becoming prohibitively costly.

The great majority of doctors are specialists in disease care, not in prevention and are primarily familiar with drugs and surgery. Thus preventing disease and designing healthcare programs to keep people healthy and well for life is not on the agenda. Instead the medical establishment is largely a business enterprise outside of the medical realm.

Health is not a medical condition, and physicians are not the gatekeepers of health and wellness. It is each of us who must take the responsibility to be our own gatekeepers.

Large numbers of people are venturing outside of the conventional medical arena in a quest to take back control to manage and promote their own health and well being. They are becoming much more active in finding ways to address their own health problems and concerns.

Non-Traditional Therapy CollageThis signifies a profound shift toward self directed health care. In response to this shift, healthcare educators and providers are beginning to look seriously at non-traditional healthcare practices as a preventive healthcare tool. This is critically important, if conventional medicine is going to play any significant future role in keeping the aging population healthy. They must begin by understanding the connection of culture as it relates to prevention, fitness and wellness.

Focusing on the cultural link of non-tradition healthcare practices can be a big step in shaping the future for generations to come in living a long illness-free healthy lifespan.

Lifespan is how long you live. Healthspan is how long you stay healthy and well. Exercise, deep breathing, good water,nutritious food,sleep and relaxation is a necessity and not an option to make this work.

A healthy lifestyle begins to decline at around age 40 when age-related degenerative conditions begin to take their toll. Our task is to extend healthspan to match life span, so we stay healthy and well until we die.

In the quest for health, millions of Americans are turning to alternative and complementary therapies and products, including supplements, herbs, Reflexology, massage, energy healing and homeopathic medicines.

News media are now promoting the safety, efficacy and overall wellness benefits of these programs and products, and scientists continue to affirm that these approaches impart real health benefits that treat ailments ranging from indigestion to allergies.

A true healthy life style is a state of optimum wellness, abundant energy and a feeling of being whole and intact. It is an invigorating life giving force that must be managed daily. Since this is an unalterable fact of life, you might as well dive into this endeavor wholeheartedly, with a galvanized and enthusiastic determination to stay healthy and well for as long as you live.

Financial Healing and Obamacare

Financial Healing and Obamacare

When I think about healthcare, I need Financial Healing. When I look at Obamacare, I need Financial Healing

Cost of HealthcareFinancial Healing and Obamacare are connected and here is how.  Both serve the same purpose, providing health and wellness service for a price. For a person to get good healthcare practitioners, medications and services a focus needing to be considered is financial healing instead of Obamacare. You may be now asking what is financial healing.

Financial Healing is the ability to have the same quality healthcare that is available to the wealthy. The healthcare of the wealthy consists of having the financial resources needed to support a healthy quality of life. This is what defines the difference in financial healing and Obamacare.

Just think, wealthy people who have financial healing would never use Obamacare. These people are political leaders (the President, & congress), entertainers, athletes, business and corporate executives (owners, CEO). The question you need to ask yourself is “WHY”. If Obamacare is not good enough for them why should it be good for you? The reason is because they all have Financial Healing.

The wealthy understand something that most people do not, “Health is Wealth and Wealth is Health it is your birthright to have both”. When you understand that you cannot have one without the other and that the two are inseparable you choose financial healing.

Financial healing begins with “like minded” people coming together with financial resources needed to produce the best quality of life they want. When you have a better quality of life you can have a healthy mind and body. This means you strive diligently to acquire the financial resources needed to have and afford the best healthcare programs and services you want.

Living a poor quality of life based on limited financial resources or living a better quality life because of available financial resources means Obamacare or Financial Healing. The choice is yours Obamacare (system controlled healthcare) or Financial Healing (self-controlled healthcare).

Financial Healing and Obamacare are not for everyone. Financial healing is a system that works well for people who are willing to make mentally, physically and emotionally lifestyle changes needed to live healthy. Healthcare for those who choose financial healing means preventive healthcare. Preventive healthcare is about living a life that supports optimum health and wellness in every area of your life.

Temple Collage-242x235The person that recognizes that his mind and body is a temple and not a warehouse, would choose Financial Healing. To have a healthy mind and body begins when you start healing your finances. To heal your finances is not an easy task and will not be achievable because of lack of knowledge and the desire to make healthy lifestyle changes, so Obamacare is the only choice. Warehouse Collage 255x235


The best medicine is preventive medicine…you don’t have to concern yourself with curing an illness if you don’t have it ~ Chinese Proverb
