How to deal with toxic family members

A lot of us think that just because we are family we have to deal with or put up with toxic, difficult and jealous family members and allow them to treat us anyway they want or feel like. And a lot of people do just that. Either they are afraid to speak up or they  become passive because they don’t want any arguments and want to keep the peace. So, they go on living this way in this toxic environment. Being in a situation like this is not healthy at all. You will be suffering on the inside and faking it on the outside and you will always find yourself trying to be a people pleaser. 


Unmistaken Love

I am not a doctor or a professor with a Ph.D background in psychology, but as I read and meditate on the word of God, (The Bible) He reveals things to me for my own understanding. God gives me the patience so that I don’t jump into things that are not for me and that I might later regret. He gives me the respect for myself and therefore, I respect others. God filled me with his love, therefore, I didn’t have to go outside seeking something that was lust and mistaking it for love like I used to do. 

Why herbs work

We all know how important it is to take care of our bodies. We know we must eat healthy and work out physically and mentally so that our minds can be healthy and fit also. We know that supplements for the body are also a key important component as well. There are a lot of doctors and nutritionists that are well- informed and know all about herbs and the right supplements one should take for their bodies, and I had to take advantage of the opportunity to speak with this one person who is very knowledgeable in herbs and healing.

Fit and fabulous workout! Happy New Year!

 Let’s start the New Year off with leg and abdominal exercises. What do you do to exercise your likes? My favorite exercise is Squats. 

First: Warm Up on Treadmill or Stationary Bike for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. After that you want to always stretch your legs. Stretching before and after any kind of exercise is really important because it helps warm up the muscles, you are about to work on, which may help prevent injury. Stretching after a workout is equally important because it may help reduce muscle soreness – as well as to help get your muscles back to your original length.

Fit & Fabulous: Biceps

Spiritual “Spring House” cleaning and healing

March is here and we are two weeks away from Spring and it’s time to clean up and clear away, what you no longer need and want! For example: You may hold a garage sale to get rid of the toys your children have out grown and all the other stuff that has cluttered your living space (maybe for years). But, what about the clutter in your mind also, what about those obstacles – we keep stubbing our toes on. You know the ones, the ones that keep holding us back from moving forward in our lives. 

This Spring is a good time to consider what’s working in our life and what isn’t. To ask whether you’re under pending beliefs, like the ones you live by – are they really your own and if, they really serve you. When we take the time to be with ourselves and go within, our lives expand and becomes richer, you’ll get a surge of energy, building momentum that will lead you to new places. New faces and opportunity will appear on your landscape. New growth comes when the old weathered and warn out stuff of winter is removed. When we are cleaning out the clutter we may become double minded and start changing our minds about giving stuff away and getting rid of it thinking we are giving away something we may need later. But, the relief we feel is so much greater when we finally let go of the things that no longer serve us.

We are wonderfully and fearfully made by God

Psalm 139:14 declares, 'I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.'

The meaning of Psalm 139:14 is the incredible nature of our physical bodies. The human body is unique, the most complex organism in the world, and that complexity and uniqueness speaks volumes about the mind of its creator. Every aspect of the body, down to the tiniest microscopic cell, reveals that it is fearfully and wonderfully made.

The bodies immune system is able to fight off so many enemies and restore itself, from the smallest repair (even down to repairing bad portions of DNA) to the largest repair (mending of bones and recovery from major accidents). Yes there are diseases that will eventually overcome our bodies as we age because of mans fall into sin and the resulting curse, but we have no idea exactly how many times our immune system has saved us from death that would surely have occurred without it.

Healthy living

The healthy benefits if drinking a green drink first thing in the morning is that it will reset, restore, and revitalize the body. It will give you immediate nutritional fortification, that will boost your natural energy. Green juice is a super plant base liquid that is filled with a lot of nutrients. I love drinking a green drink because it helps improve my digestion, and overall energize my whole body as well as giving me a full feeling so I don't have to eat a whole lot of food first thing in the morning. Sometimes we think we always need that BIG breakfast, and that's not always good for us. You should start to incorporate this in your lifestyle and it will help improve your body. If you want to cleanse your system a green drink can and will help you do just that.

Believe the Unbelievable, and Receive the Impossible

 

Mark 11:23 says, “For verily I say unto you, that whosoever say to this mountain, be thou remove, and be thou casts into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

Jesus tells you to believe for it when you pray, believe that you receive it, not when you get it, not when it manifest, it has nothing to do with payment, it has to do with believing.

Mark 11:24 says, therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Everything God does, God always challenges us to believe with the natural, and the senses cannot grasp this. Do not let anyone who is an unbeliever, or negative thinker, limit you in your beliefs, when you are unlimited. Realize you are unlimited. I will not let any unbeliever or negative person limit me when I am unlimited. Don’t think with your fleshly mind; think with the word of God. How do you do that? You have to read God’s word daily, so that you become saturated in it. It’s the same as you soaking, and marinating your chicken or turkey in your special recipe sauce overnight. And now that meat has become saturated in those flavors that it has now absorbed. And it no longer tastes bland, it now tastes as flavorful as the sauce, but you had to saturate and marinate it overnight to transform it to the desired taste you were hoping for.
