Where Your Heart Will Not Dare / Healthy Ways to Stop Headaches / Friday: Half Price Books and Movie – Harriet

When we finally recognize Visual Poetry, we become more aware of the Beauty all around us.

The pace of our Lives today
takes from us
much of the Wonder and Joy and Beauty
of the World all around us.

I,
the am,
called me,
or whatever I be,
resides nowhere
but in the Heart.
And,
so do you.

And all
that we do,
will magnify us,
if
we bring comfort
and Love
into the Lives
of others.

My Dear Friends,
when we finally recognize
Visual Poetry,
we become more aware of the Beauty
all around us.

To see
where your eyes
cannot stare,
feel
where your Heart
will not dare.

“I Pray that
the eyes of your Heart
may be enlightened,
so that you may know what is
the Hope of His Calling,
and what are the riches of the Glory
of His Inheritance in the Saints.”

Ephesians 1:18

Silhouettes
of Morning and Evening Light
are there for those
who
desire to Commune
with God,
from within His Canvass
of Many Colors.

We thrive
on the rhythm
of our fragile Human Hearts,
never fully knowing
this rhythm,
like the rhythm of the falling rain,
is Poetry
without words.

The intense
Light of the Moon
is surreal,
Spiritual,
and thought provoking.
It is
but another
in the countless, Beautiful Blessings
and little recognized Gifts
from God.

             His Canvass of Many Colors.

Every
Child of God
is a Gift,
Visual Poetry,
whose forms are myriad,
mystical and magic –
an intense expression
of the Pure Love
of God.

The Spirit of a Child
is filled with innocence, Joy, Love
and laughter.
Jesus tells us
to
be like Children.

In Matthew 18:3 He says,
“Assuredly, I say to you,
unless you change and become as little Children,
you will by no means
enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Every child
is the message
that God is not yet discouraged
with man.

Our Holy Bible tells us
how all children are
Gifts from God.
Every Life,
every Child,
is a Reward and Blessing.
Children bring Pride and Love and Joy.
They teach us how to be
patient and Loving
and forgiving.

They
are the Teachers.
We
are the students.

Children become the mirrors
of our mind,
and manors,
and our morals.
They reflect
what we think
and
say
and do.

 Children ask questions
that a wise person
can never answer.
They are
Children of God!
.
If you want your children
to turn out well,
spend
twice as much time with them
and half as much money.”

Rabindranath Tagore

.
Every Child
comes through us,
not from us.
And through their
eyes,
we glimpse
the entire World
of Creation.

A Child
is not merely
Visual Poetry,
but transformative
in the Love
felt for us,
and all other
Living Creations.
Every
new born Child of God
feels nothing
but Love.

Why?

Through their eyes, we glimpse the entire World of Creation.

Adolf Hitler
was beaten into a coma
when he was ten.
For three days his family did not know
if he would live or die.
He was frequently beaten every day
from the age of seven
until his father’s death,
when he was 13 years old.
.
If
you want to know
the number one cause
of World War II,
it can be traced back
to the father
of this
Child.

If
you want to know
the cause of so much violence
on our precious Earth,
look no further
than what our fragile Children
have been in sufferance of.

History
will judge us

by the difference we make
in the everyday lives of Children.”
Nelson Mandela

Goodnight.

When our Love meets the visual poetry of God, Beauty will arise.

Healthy Ways to Stop Headaches

Headaches. We all get them, and when we do, all we want to do is get rid of them, as quickly as possible. While there’s no shortage of prescription and over-the-counter meds on the market designed to kill the pain, as most people with a headache will tell you, few if any really work – nor do they get to the root causes. Worse, the more you try to ‘treat’ them with drugs, the more likely you’ll get sucker-punched with rebound headaches, a common side-effect. What else do headache meds do? They make you sick in other places, wreaking havoc on your liver and kidneys as well as your belly, triggering leaky gut, gastrointestinal problems and system-wide inflammation.

So what’s a headache sufferer to do? Here’s what’s going on in your head, plus a few healthy strategies to help you fight off headaches – and win:

Oh, my aching head!

Although it may be labeled as a migraine, tension, sinus or cluster headache, whatever the type, headaches are complicated. Generally, there are multiple causal factors at work and, in my experience, there’s usually a tension component involved, so that should be a factor in treatment. It’s also helpful to be conscious of how lifestyle habits and behaviors can trigger headaches to help you figure out the best strategy to fight back. Among the more common culprits:

1.    Unrelieved stress and tension which also leads to poor quality sleep.
.
2.    The modern office: where so many are slumped over in poorly designed desk spaces and office chairs for hours each day, with eyes being strained by computer screen glare and florescent lighting.
.
3.    Not moving enough, or overdoing it at the weight room or spin class, which can cause blood vessels to swell and exertion headaches to follow.
.
4.    Processed foods and foods containing gluten and sugar lead the headache parade, with chocolate, caffeine, cheese, and alcohol not far behind. Another headache-maker? Not eating enough good fats as well as several other nutritional shortfalls.
.
5.    Prescription drugs such as antibiotics, allergy meds, blood pressure meds, anti-anxiety meds, diabetes meds, migraine meds, pain killers, sleep aids, you name it – just about any prescription drug can trigger headaches.

Do a little detective work.

If you’re feeling less than well for a prolonged period of time, and are experiencing frequent digestive distress as well as headaches, it’s probably time to try a Cleanse or an elimination diet for a few weeks. I recommend them because some food sensitivities trigger headaches and a Cleanse or an elimination diet removes the common foods that can trigger them, enabling you to figure out the food sources of your troubles (and rebalance your gut).

Bring on the healing hands.

No matter what type of headache you’ve got, to address the almost universal tension component, put your own hands, or someone else’s, to work for you, to massage the head and neck and release the tension. If you’re not sure how to perform a headache self-care massage, try a YouTube tutorial, or book a professional deep-tissue massage session – and don’t forget to release tension in the jaw which is essential. The placing heat packs on neck and shoulders, and CDB oil, can offer additional relief. To relieve pain, try placing an ice pack or cubes at the temples.

Think outside the pill box.

Acupuncture is another safe and highly effective way to relieve the frequency and severity of headaches and migraines. When pressed for time, drop into salons that offer seated chair massage and ask for a 15-30 minute neck and shoulder treatment. If you like a more hands-off approach, book a session or two at a spa with a ‘salt cave’ or infrared sauna to help relieve and prevent headaches. Another option to consider is biofeedback, which can lower blood pressure and help with pain relief.

Please, make it stop…now!

When you feel a headache coming on, instead of heading to the drug store, head to the natural health store to pick up a healthy quick fixer: essential oils like peppermint, eucalyptus and lavender.  All offer headache-pain-taming effects and can reduce headache-related nausea. You can either inhale the scent, or massage the oils onto the temples and forehead as directed. Many of my on-the-go patients like the roll-ons for their go-anywhere convenience, though bottled oils work equally well.

Push Pain Off Your Plate

Since pain and inflammation tend to go hand in hand, you can side-step a lot of headache pain by laying off inflammatory foods. Topping the list of pain ‘flamers: sugar, gluten, refined flours, processed foods, and sugary beverages. When it comes to alcohol, the occasional glass of (preferably organic) wine at dinner shouldn’t cause instant agony, but the less alcohol you drink, the better – the last thing a headache sufferer needs is a hangover.

Eat a pain-tamer.

For many headache sufferers, a diet lacking in magnesium and/or omega-3 fatty acids may be part of the problem. When you fall short on omega-3s, you short-change your body’s ability to curb inflammation, which can also contribute to headache pain. So add omega-3-rich oily fish like mackerel, sardines or salmon to your diet to cut headaches down to size – and possibly even avoid them altogether. Ditto magnesium-rich leafy greens and sulfur-rich veggies like garlic, onions, scallions and chives, as well as cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cauliflower.

Take edible and drinkable pain relief with you.

For those on-the-go, add portable green drink powders to your daily routine. Add water and these green drinks, made from leafy greens and spinach, are great sources of headache-fighting magnesium. At the office, keep a few feverfew tea bags in your desk drawer so you can brew up cups of headache-relieving tea as needed.

Drink your way out of the headache hole.

A lot of us walk this earth dehydrated, and we don’t have a clue. Too much coffee, overheated homes and offices, sweaty workouts, frequent airplane trips, certain meds, alcohol use  –  any and all can leave you significantly under-watered, which reduces the amount of oxygen available to the brain and impacts pain receptors in ways that can make your head hurt. So, as if you needed one more reason, drink up!

Give yourself an edge.

In addition to covering your nutritional and behavioral bases with whole foods, relaxation techniques, quality sleep and gentle movement, I also recommend the following supplements to cover any pain-promoting nutritional shortfalls: magnesium glycinate, fish oil (especially if fish is not your dish), vitamin D and B-Complex.

Keep it moving.

Move more, hurt less. And stretch your upper body as often as possible to keep tension from collecting in your head and neck, ground zero for tension headaches. Doing a few yoga stretches in the morning, and whenever possible throughout  the day, will also keep muscles from bunching up. An end-of-day relaxing yoga class or a few restorative yoga poses just before bed will help keep headaches at bay.

Get your office act together.

To reduce daily eyestrain and some of the common work-day headache triggers, switch to a desk lamp and kill the overhead lights whenever possible. Reduce the brightness on your computer screen and be sure that your screen is always at eye-level (even if you have to work on a laptop). Make sure to take frequent screen breaks, and get up from your chair at least once an hour (and hopefully more!). Be sure that your desk set-up is ergonomically correct — get the boss to spring for a sit-to-stand riser for your monitor and an under-the-desk keyboard tray. All of these desk tweaks will help cut eye, neck and shoulder strain while reducing your weekly headache tally.

As The Years Pass By / Drinks that Will Relax Your Nerves / Important Dates

“O Lord,
Thy Spirit’s Aid impart,
And fill me with Devotion’s Fire;
Create anew my waiting Heart,
And Heavenly breathings there inspire;
Bid Heart and flesh cry out for Thee,
And Thou my
Joyful
portion be!”

William Gadsby

The reflections of our Creator.

So comforting,
the flow of knowing
Words
that once were mine,
are yours.

Held forever,
the Sacred Divine.
A Prayer.

Who gives the Divine Gift,
to forgive
and forget the wrong
that is done?
And thus
it is undone,
and long ago
forgotten.

My Friends,
there is
a Truth in
your eyes,
when your smile
speaks
to the Heart
of someone in need.

The silence of
knowing
that Love abides,
enters the Heart,
and there
it thrives.

“So we stood
hand in hand,

like two Children,
and there was Peace in our Hearts
for all the dark things
that surrounded us.”
Arthur Conan Doyle

                Peace in our Hearts

Humankind
is the Crown
of all Creation,
the materialized Dream,
the Vision seen,
brought to Light and Life,
by God
in a Dream.

Every footnote
of our mysterious Human History,
written or unseen,
focused upon a plane
of illusion.
For we refused to see
the reflections of
our Creator
in you and me.

We were
many layers of knowledge
away
from envisioning
Today.

No one
could have even imagined
the computer age,
the bizarre and unnatural
implications of Quantum Mechanics,
or genetic engineering
leading to Biological Immortality.

Elizabeth Blackburn
is a renowned Biologist.
She was awarded the Nobel Prize
in Physiology or Medicine in 2009
for the discovery of how chromosomes
are protected by Telomeres
and the enzyme Telomerase.

She is currently the President
of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

Telomeres
are deeply engaged in our lifetime.
As we Humans age,
Telomeres shorten, which leads to aging.
The Telomere is influenced by Telomerase.
Please take note:
Artificially nudging up Telomerase
could increase the risks of cancers.
So what are we supposed to do?

Don’t worry.
We can control Telomerase
by our mind and lifestyle.

“Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace, deep peace.

Deep peace of the sleeping stones to you.
Deep peace of the wandering wind to you.
Deep peace of the flock of stars to you.
Deep peace, deep peace.

Pure red of the whirling flame to you.
Pure white of the silver moon to you.
Pure green of the emerald grass to you.
Deep peace, deep peace.”

Possessing the Spirit of a Child.

My Dear Parents,
as we cradle
our precious Child
in arms warm
and inviting,
and look into
the only eyes
that ever truly will see
what will be,
we are separated
by a common destiny,
as our Sacred Children
one day will look back
at you and me,
and this wondrous
moment.

Possessing the Spirit
of a Child
is an indispensable condition
for entrance into the Kingdom
of God,
not Earthly possessions
or Worldly greatness,
but the simplicity,
naturalness,
the upward look of tenderness
in the
Life of a Child,
the Child Spirit.

The nature of a Child
is revelation
of the Divine Nature.

“Verily I say unto you,
except ye be converted,
and become as little Children,
ye shall not enter into
the Kingdom of Heaven.”
Matthew 18:3

As we seek
answers
to questions unseen,
look to the tender,
hitherto unseen,
the one
who held your hand
as you presumed
to lead,
but who showed you
the way.
Yes,
the Child
of your many
Dreams.

God’s Eternal Love.

Goodnight.

According to studies, relaxing has phenomenal health benefits. These include reducing stress, insomnia and also discouraging the development of cancer and heart diseases. These benefits aside, it is just a good thing to relax. Urmet Seepter discusses some of the natural drinks that you can take to calm your nerves and relax.

 Drinks that Will Relax Your Nerves

By

1. Pure Coconut Water

Although coconut water has been associated more with its energy-boosting capabilities, it can also help you sleep better. It is an excellent source of magnesium and potassium, the two ingredients that helps muscles relax. Potassium and magnesium also regulate digestion and improve blood circulation. A small cup of coconut water is richer in potassium than 2 bananas. Also, coconut water is rich in B vitamins that help reduce stress and can also lessen the risks of lower blood pressure and heart attack. It is one of the best remedies you can drink to calm your nerves naturally.

2. Warm Or Hot Milk

Hot or even warm milk is great for a person who feels that his nerves are shot and they want to fall asleep. Milk contains an amino acid known as tryptophan and this is what helps you calm your nerves. If you want sweet antioxidant boost, mix it with a little honey. Next time you are unable to calm your nerves, just drink warm or hot milk. It can work wonders.

3. Tart Cherry Juice

According to studies, drinking tart cherry juice has overwhelming benefits to your body. Some of its advantages include reducing inflammation associated with arthritis and heart disease, encouraging normal levels of uric acid (this can ease gout), lowering blood cholesterol, encouraging healthy joints and improving muscle recovery.

It also has great sleep advantages in addition to promoting a lovely skin. It is common to see some of the best athletes take this drink in the middle of their performances. You may not be a world-beating athlete but if you include this drink in your daily regimen, it will do you good especially with relaxing.

4. Herbal Teas

There are many herbal teas that can help your anxiety.
However, it is important that whatever tea you choose to take, it should not contain caffeine. Below are the common herbal teas that you can drink to calm your nerves.

  • Kava. This is by far the best known herbal tea for dealing with anxiety. Many times, its effects are likened to those of Buspar, a common anxiety drug, and it appears to possess all the traits of a herbal remedy. This includes being non-addictive, completely natural as well as the fact that it can be consumed whenever needed. However, it is instructive to take note of a few things regarding kava tea. Firstly, the kava tea bought at your local grocery store is not good enough to relax you. While the basic teas provide only 30-50 kavalactones, you need up to 300 or more for you to see any calming effects. The trick is to find a purer herbal tea, such as those that are normally stocked in tea shops. Also, it is advisable to mix it with a drink that contains fats, like coconut milk or butter.Another thing is that kava is very strong and is likely to interact with certain medications. Also, never take it with alcohol. If you have liver disease, kava tea is not for you. NB! This drink must not be taken without a doctor’s nod.
    .
  • Passionflower Tea. Passionflower tea works similar to kava. However, it is not strong the way kava is but has lots of benefits. It offers great calming effects the same way kava does but it does not have the side effects associated with kava.
    .
  • Valerian Root Tea. This type of herbal tea is not necessarily designed for anxiety. However, it still has the calming effects that can soothe anxiety symptoms. Traditionally, valerian tea was used to aid people in sleeping. Many people who suffer from insomnia use valerian root tea to help them catch a few winks of sleep.

5. Oat Straw

Oat straw may be good for you if you want something to drink to calm your nerves. It is a well known remedy that has been used over the years to cure exhaustion and depression. However, this is not a magic drink that will relieve you of your anxiety in an instant. It must be taken for some time, like a month, for it to have calming effects on you. You can find it in stores that sell natural remedies and herbs.

6. Green Tea

Green tea has many health benefits, and one of these is stress relief. The reason for its stress relief is mainly because of theanine it contains, an important calming agent. Like the herbal teas above, it is important that you drink decaffeinated green tea. Caffeine is in fact a stimulant and cannot produce the calming effects that you need.

7. Honey-Infused Drinks

If, for some reason, you cannot use herbal teas, just take any of the drinks mentioned above and infuse them with honey for roughly two weeks. When you feel ready to drink a cup, just mix a table spoon of honey or tea mixture into hot water, hot milk or coconut water and drink it up. It will calm your nerves and help you relax.

Relaxing is important for a healthy person. However, the busy lifestyles that most of us find ourselves in today deprive us of time to relax. But the good news is that there are indeed natural drinks that you can take to calm your nerves.

Did God Create Everything? / Friday: We Will Be At School

 default

Did God create everything?

Great Truths are simple.
But they are not as simple or as complex
as we make them appear in our mind.
Essentially, they are right or wrong,
they either exist or they do not,
and God created everything
or He, simply,
did not.

We can endeavor
to understand that which
may not be fathomable to the human mind.
But to stroll down the pathway of awareness
is to search for a depth of meaning
and understanding
that is never ending,
and starts
at the beginning.

Truth
can be as simple,
and beautiful,
as night and day,
the absence or presence
of something.

a_010

Darkness does not really exist.

“In the beginning
God created the Heavens
And the Earth.”
– Genesis I

Let us ask a seemingly simplistic question:
“Does darkness exist?”

No, darkness does not really exist.
The simple truth is,
the dark is the absence of light.
And we can observe and measure light,
but not the dark.
There is nothing in the dark to measure.
A prism can break white light into many colors
and we can observe the wavelengths of each color.
But, the dark you cannot measure.
There is no such thing as a dark meter.
We cannot know how dark a space is.

butterfly

Light can illuminate and bring life to what is within.

However,
light can shatter the nothingness of darkness
and illuminate and bring life
to what is within.
You can actually measure the amount of light present
by using a light meter.
But there is no dark meter.
Darkness we cannot measure.
It is simply a word
used to describe what happens
when no light is present.

Let us now ask,
“Does cold exist?”

We feel that it simply must exist.
After all, we have felt the cold.

But, in truth, cold does not exist.
According to the laws of physics,
what we think of as cold is in reality
the absence of heat.
Everything, including our human body,
possesses or transmits energy,
and heat makes our body,
and everything else
have or transmit energy.
Absolute zero,
– 460 degrees Fahrenheit,
is the total absence of heat.

dark

     Evil is the absence of God.

At this temperature,
all matter becomes suspended, dormant,
deficient in active properties
and incapable of any reaction.

Cold, my friends, simply does not exist.
We have created the word “cold”
to describe how we feel
if we have little or no heat.

“Come and see the works of God,
He is awesome in His deeds
toward the children of men.”
– Psalm 66.5

path

Stroll down the pathway of awareness.

Does evil exist?

Yes, evil is all around us.
We see evil every day.
It is man’s inhumanity to man.
It is in the crime and violence
we are witness to throughout the world.
The horrors mankind has been witness to
are nothing but evil.

But, evil, my Friends,
exists unto itself.

lake

Our beautiful and precious Spirit is a Loving Creation of God.

Evil is, quite simply,
the absence of God.
It is like the darkness and the cold.
Evil is a word
that mankind created to describe
the absence of God.

Evil happens when we do not have
God’s love present in our Heart.
It is like the cold that comes
when there is no heat
or the darkness that comes
when there is no light.

The question of evil is in reality,
a deep and pervasive philosophical question.
And yes, it needs to be answered.
For, in Truth, the Truth
can set us free.
It can liberate our minds
and calm our anxiety
and sooth our overburdened Hearts.

My Friends,
we need to know
what real inner freedom feels like.
We need to know that such freedom exists.
We desperately need to know
that our beautiful and precious Spirit
is a Loving Creation of God,
and that He loves us
far beyond our poor capacity
to add or detract
from the fact of our existence.

Love is, and always was,
incomprehensible.
And, if you think deeply about it,
that is a part of what makes it
so very beautiful.

sun

Prayerful silence can cause you to contemplate answers that you may be running from.

A baby lying in its Mother’s arms
does not comprehend
the pure and unconditional Love
it feels and so willingly accepts.
And neither do you,
in the Arms of God.
Perhaps the thing missing
is our acceptance of this Love.

Jesus gave us a truly insightful perspective
when he said:

Truly I tell you, unless you change
and become like little children,
you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”
(Matthew 18:3)

heart

Truth can be as simple, and beautiful, as night and day.

 My Dear Friends,
people can be intimidated by silence.

But Prayerful silence can cause you
to contemplate answers
that you may be running from,
and never be aware
that you are avoiding
Inner Truths.

The human mind
Is fragile.

It is easily susceptible
to distraction
and gets exhausted
readily and rapidly.
our inability to harness
its focus and power
results in many
highways deaths,
divorces, much anger
and the intolerance
that leads to wars.


Our minds are so far

from perfection,
that we cannot conceive of
the Perfect Love
of God.

But at the core of every person
is a longing to know that God loves them.
We want the assurance God loves us.
God put this desire in us,
and God wants you to know
He Loves YOU.

bath

Come and see the works of God.

God’s love for us
is beyond our ability to understand,
but not beyond our ability
to realize, accept and enjoy.

The apostle John wrote in I John 3:1:

“See what great love
the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called
children of God!
And that is what we are!”

john

Love is, and always was, incomprehensible.
