I think we have so many people out of wack because they don’t know and accept who they are. People don’t understand how vulnerable a growing brain is…. Teenagers are trying to raise children and they are subjected to seeing everything thinking they won’t be affected…they are affected.

They tell you, you need money to raise a kid etc but forget to say be emotionally & mentally sound…but for brown people we were doomed from the start. Think about our grandparents, great grandparents, and before that… we’ve always been subjected to growing up seeing slavery stuff, hate, abuse, etc. We’ve never been emotionally sound. The things a child sees, how they were raised, will affect the things they do, the way they think, the way they are etc. ….children are not resilient, they see and pick up on everything no matter how people try to fake it in front of them. A child picks up on that fake smile, that low self-esteem, how to be manipulated, and how to manipulate etc.

How we see our parents handle disputes or people we grew up around is how we ultimately learn to handle disputes, and most of the time it isn’t healthy…. & we don’t know it isn’t healthy because we unconsciously seek people who will comply with our behavior…. We will ultimately treat our significant other how our parents treat/treated each other. They say kids re-enact events through play, I think we re-enact events through LIFE. It is time to break the curse.

We are our parents, and attracted to people like our parents… We look for people to comply with our behavior, and ignore our insecurities. It’s not our fault, we are programed to unconsciously just mimic what we see… but it can be corrected if you want to….it’s just the work to reverse behavior.

How can people raise children to be sound individuals, individuals that will eventually be competent enough to take care of us, that will run the world if the people who raise them mindsets and emotions aren’t sound? They unknowing pass “it” (their own mindsets/emotion patterns) down from generation to generation. … They say disease is genetic, and I agree in a sense….but I think mindsets and emotion patterns…if not genetic, are surely “contagious” to a growing brain…and we get set in our ways. A person who rejects knowledge is a fool. We have the right to read and write, and we choose not to.

I believe you have to know, and accept who you are before you know who you will be. I think a person’s biggest blessing is in their life lesson…learn your lesson, let it go, break the curse, live right….and glow up All I can say to you is just let it go. Whatever negative emotion you breed, let it go. That secret you hide with shame, let it go. Emotions are meant to be felt in the present and let go. Let your E stay in motion lol.

We’ve learned to attach our emotions to peoples actions…detach. You are only responsible for yourself. Our experiences shape who we are, the choices we make, the things we say, everything. People make choices based on their own needs, and past experiences, we all have different experiences so we all handle things differently. People’s actions aren’t always because of you, sometimes it’s what a person hides, and has been through. Give them love, and give them time. Understand that people are who they are and we can’t MAKE them change. We can only accept them for who they are, try to understand them, and show the right direction to go in & know that their love for us is pure… actions are just off sometimes…OR let them go….

Our secrets destroy us. We try to hide things for fear of being rejected and/or criticized. It destroys love, but perfect unfailing love expels all fear. The opposite of love is indifference, not hate. So why don’t we try to understand each other? We let our emotions take over. Our secrets will forever haunt us until we let go. We must learn to communicate with one another instead of acting on impulse. Once you let “it” go, and learn not to attach your emotions to people’s actions you will create peace in your world. Fully accept and embrace who you are, and spread that beaYOUty with the world. Society has us so bent on looking at other people, we forget to look and care for ourselves.

On an airplane they say, put your oxygen mask on before helping anyone else….People make choices for them. Make choices for YOU. Take care of YOU. Do something that will make YOU happy. I don’t care if they told you you’re good at math, if you love ballet, do ballet. It’s okay to be selfish sometimes. Your only responsibility is yourself. Take time to learn who you are, what you want, what you love, accept yourself…flaws and all. Grow from them.

Work on you first, you can’t love a person more than you love yourself. It won’t work. One thing I hate is being compared; it creates jealousy and/or depression. Don’t compare yourself to me, don’t compare yourself to anyone. We ALL have flaws, who are we to judge? We ALL need each other. Why do we use people as a step ladder to get ahead? We will still need a teacher to teach our children, we will still need someone to sell us that car, we still need someone to build that house, and we will still go through that fast food drive thru line. We are all here for a purpose. Find out what it is. It’s not about money, that will come with living right.

Don’t be a bag lady and miss your bus. Let “it” go, and figure out what greatness you’re going to be. You better Dream ladies and gents! There are no limits, anything is possible with work & if we live right… it’s our God given right. Be like the ants, its time to work. It is time to break this curse brown people. The time is now.

With love,

Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids. Your body is composed of about 60% water. (Men have more water than women as a percentage.) The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients in the body, and maintenance of body temperature, flushing toxins, digesting food, and more.

Water Helps Keep Skin Looking Good. The skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and premature wrinkling. Your skin contains plenty of water, and functions as a protective barrier to prevent excess fluid loss. Certain toxins in the body can cause the skin to inflame, which results in clogged pores and acne . water will flush out these toxins and can reduce the risk of pimples. “Dehydration makes your skin look more dry and wrinkled, which can be improved with proper hydration,” he says. “But once you are adequately hydrated, the kidneys take over and excrete excess fluids.” –WebMD

Muscle fuel Sweating at the gym causes muscles to lose water. And when the muscles don’t have enough water, they get tired and shrivel, which can result in muscle fatigue. [[Fatty tissue has less water than lean tissue.]]

Kidney function & Dehydration Kidneys helps cells take in nutrients, control blood pressure, remove waste from the blood and urine, and balance fluids. Every day, the kidneys filter around 120-150 quarts of fluid. Approximately 1-2 quarts are removed from the body in the form of urine, and the rest is recovered by the bloodstream. Water is essential for the kidneys to function. If the kidneys do not function properly, waste products/toxins, and excess fluid can build up inside the body, this compromises the immune system.Dehydration happens if we use and lose more water than the body takes in. It can lead to an imbalance in the body’s electrolytes. Electrolytes, such as potassium, phosphate, and sodium, help carry electrical signals between cells. The kidneys keep the levels of electrolytes in the body stable when they function properly. When the kidneys are unable to maintain a balance in the levels of electrolytes, can lead to seizures, involving involuntary muscle movements and loss of consciousness. In severe cases, dehydration can lead to kidney failure, which can be life-threatening. Possible complications of chronic kidney failure include anemia, damage to the central nervous system, heart failure, and a compromised immune system.

Water Can Help Control Calories. Dieters have been drinking lots of water as a weight loss strategy. Water helps people feel full, and as a result consume fewer calories.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Joints in the human body are prone to continuous friction and weathering. A decrease in water consumption may lead to rheumatoid arthritis. Aching joints, muscle cramps, and strains can all occur if the body is dehydrated. Water keeps the cartilage around the body’s joints hydrated, ensuring the joints stay lubricated.

Breathing. Water plays its role in distributing oxygen all over the human body while collecting the carbon dioxide from all these parts and dissolving these gases. When dehydrated, airways are restricted by the body in an effort to minimize water loss. This can make asthma and allergies worse.

Water Helps Maintain Normal Bowel Function. Adequate hydration keeps things flowing along your gastrointestinal tract and prevents constipation. When you don’t get enough fluid, the colon pulls water from stools to maintain hydration — and the result is constipation.

Prevents Cardiovascular Diseases Blood is more than 90 percent water. A lack of water can cause blood to become thicker, increasing blood pressure. Water can prevent cardiovascular disorders to a large degree. It maintains the proper viscosity of blood and plasma and fibrinogen distribution.

Boosts Metabolism. Water is the carrier of oxygen, nutrients, and hormones to the body parts and also provides a medium for the removal of toxins, dead cells, and waste material. The proteins and enzymes involved in various fundamental processes also require water for their proper functioning.

Backaches. The back of our body rests on the spinal cord. Water protects our spinal cord and tissues, keeping us healthy from the inside out. Cartilage, which is the rubbery material that coats our bones, is about 85 percent water. The spinal disk core is made up of a large volume of water and dehydration, which leads to back pain in many individuals.

Productivity boost If you’re going to need to concentrate for long periods of time, keep water handy to help you stay refreshed, hydrated, and focused. Dehydration can impair your attention span, memory, and motor skills. Feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration. Dehydration can affect brain structure and function, and prolonged dehydration can lead to problems with thinking and reasoning.

Soaking in a warm bath or shower may make us feel less lonely. Researchers have concluded that when people are lonely and seeking connectedness, they spend more time in warm baths and showers, substituting physical warmth for emotional warmth . Doing so seems to ease loneliness and feelings of isolation. Warm baths may also cue oxytocin, the hormone responsible for making us feel relaxed and bonded with others. Typically released when we’re experiencing closeness to others.

Its sounds are soothing. Exposure to unpleasant noises (screams, scrapes, electric drills, subway trains, perhaps?) can elevate our pulse and blood pressure and cause stress hormones to be released. The sounds of water flowing has also been found to have therapeutic effects.

Living near it is good for our health. One study showed that good health is more prevalent the closer one lives to the coast. Whether it’s the proximity to sea air, greenery, or on the beach, spending time near the water makes us healthier.

Pregnant Women & Nursing Mothers A pregnant woman carries a new life in her womb that develops from her body’s resources. The nutrients and other factors needed for its growth can be carried from mother to the fetus via blood, which in turn needs water. Constipation, bladder infections, and hemorrhoids are common during pregnancy and these can be avoided by drinking excess water during these periods.

Babies and children have a higher percentage of water than adults. When babies are born, they are about 78 percent water, but this falls to 65 percent by the age of 1 year.

This course is designed for a better understanding of the adrenal glands, its function, and the relevance to the mind-body connection. It is important to address and understand the root cause of a concern, not only for yourself, but for clients if you are in the field to serve them. The depth of the education may better assist by having more science-based understanding of the body’s needs and how it functions. The emotional development and ability to cope with stress is a vital factor in ones being, and it is never too late to learn how to heal the body and mind. It is important to learn to cope, understand your own triggers, and/or a client’s personal triggers, and overcome them with respect to each organ. Each organ has certain emotions tied to it, as in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Energy from internalized emotions, and emotions and/or trauma left unchecked, have a greater impact on organs because of the transfer of negative or positive hormones to their connected organs. It is important to understand that thoughts and emotions affect health, how thoughts and emotions affect the health, and how to manage it. Nothing manifests without it first starting as thought and e(nergy in)motion. This course is intended to bridge the gap between mental, e(nergy)motional, spiritual, and physical health with science-based education.
