If You’re Going Through Hell Keep Going by Valerie Cheers Brown

“NOT endeavoring may be agreeable, but rather it is an incredible indicator of one thing. You will stay where you are. Circumstances may (or may not) change, but rather by chance that you are not in real life you won’t be their engineer.”

“To roll out enduring improvement, change, is going to take every day routine of venturing out into the obscure and moving past what you believed was conceivable. In all its frightening grandness.”

“On the other side is the gold of the life you pronounced conceivable. This is the amusement we are in – would you say you are up to rolling out the improvement of a lifetime?”

“I am here to empower you to open that door of opportunity……. to carry on with the life you generally envisioned – every last bit of it…..in every sense.”

“To open that little voice inside…..you know the one…..and set it free,,,resonating,,,,blissful…… bobbing off the walls inspired!”

“I’m a qualified new entrepreneur, blessed with many mentors, published author, mom, grandmother…… all with the love of many people, life and writing. I’m lucky to have had a diverse path in life through many different job opportunities or careers, relationships meeting many new people from all walks and many different cultures……some being diverse which has taught me the secrets of success, happiness and the fastest route to fulfilment.”

“However…..you must open your heart,,,,,,,claim your will and air out your brain, body and soul to positive change. Because let me tell you,,,,when you do,,,,,,when you truly want it……incredible things will come to you.”

I love this amazing quote by Elizabeth Gilbert, best-selling novelist,  “The woman who I love and admire for their strength and grace did not get that way because shit worked out.  They got that way because shit went wrong, and they handled it.  They handled it in a thousand different ways on a thousand different days, but they handled it.  Those women are my superheroes.”

“Do you know somebody like this woman?”

“Most likely……we can say yes to our mothers who are or were those amazing and incredible women…. who both put up with their kids shitty things and ways…… and the husband they love until death due them part like they promise God.”

“Life is tough….but so are you!”

“Just remember….it never hurts to keep looking for sunshine.”

“I can recall reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s novel, Eat Pray Love, in the wake of a time of what felt like a great many challenges. A period when it felt like each one of the essential human needs…..affection, importance and assurance…had been turned on its head …..somewhat like being in a clothes washer.”

“So in case you’re wading through the test right now…….regardless of how huge or little….hold onto it tightly and continue and keep moving forward with your dreams” 🙂

Just remember…..”That sentiment of being lost is the start of an adventure journey of wisdom and if you really want it…….strength will be your best friend!”

“I often think about the legendary Maya Angelou and her childhood story which gives such hope to all young girls.”

“Maya Angelou’s early life was tarred by rape and prostitution. So disturbing was the abuse that she endured aged seven, she stopped talking for five years.”

“Despite this, she developed a love of language which saw her become a world-famous poet, civil rights activist (working with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X) and award-winning author known for her acclaimed memoir “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”.”

I close by quoting a famous quote by Dr. Angelou and hope you will always remember just how blessed we really are when we look at those who are not so blessed as you and I. ~ Today I am blessed.

“The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude. If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow. Today I am blessed.” ~ Maya Angelou

“So….if your’re going through hell keep going!”

Magic Number by Valerie Cheers Brown

“16 to 61 are the magic numbers for my life.”

“Well…my very first volunteer gig was when I was the ripe age of 16 and I am now 61 and thought it to be sort of ironic and a sign for this to be my year 2015…….yes is my year for my dreams to come true.”

“I have been a dreamer for the majority of my life, putting them on hold for others.”

“I cannot blame anyone but self for not pursuing my dreams and after all…..they were assigned by God specifically to me and for only me.”

“Your dreams are your dreams and they are not for anybody else to understand.”

“Sometimes….we don’t understand them ourselves.”

“But….our dreams are ours and they are for us to make come true!”

“How would we know if we did not try to make our dreams come true….. that they could come true…if we don’t try ourselves from much hard work and not giving up?”

“Is it up to us to make our dreams come true?”

“I think half and half and part God’s work and the best part comes from our work and anticipation of not giving up and being patient most of all which can be rather enduring.”

“We must learn how to make dreams come true by enhancing the power of our mind.”

“God gives us this amazing sense of such beautiful peace that is not quite like none other.”

“If you have not experienced peace it is so incredible and just never have felt anything quite like it before in my lifetime of 61 years.”

“I have learned while being on this journey that while you dream or when you’re in deep meditation you may see beyond now and into the future as your logical conscious mind shuts down.”

“Your conscious mind is no longer able to categorize the events of your life into a logical order.”

“Conscious mind out-of-the-way, you get a chance to have a glimpse at the events of your life that would be considered as your future in your waking life…” – Dr. Eric Amidi.

“Consequently, when you unwind and close down your legitimate personality, you may have the capacity to open your psyche to a feeling of what’s to come and get a look of the entire arrangement on the divider.”

“The more profound the unwinding, the less present your cognizant personality is, consequently the less capable it is to put the occasions of your life in time request; permitting you to get a more extensive look of the abstract composition of occasions throughout your life, some from your future.”

“Really cool, isn’t that so? Unquestionably a fascinating tackle why some we had always wanted work out, and what are awareness and subliminal quality personality is prepared to do.”

“It’s happened to the vast majority at any rate once.”

“You have a fantasy or dream!”

“You may release it or think that its clever yet a day or week go by and happening right in front of you is the precise dream you simply had.”

“Freaky stuff huh? Then again is it simply the laws of physics working itself out?”

“Dreams are extremely important. You can’t do it unless you imagine it.” — George Lucas

Stay Ready by Valerie Cheers Brown

“If you stay ready, you ain’t got to get ready.” ~ Will Smith

“If you don’t learn something new each and every day you will never be better.” ~ Valerie J Brown

There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch what happens, and people who wonder what happened. ~ Tommy Lasorda

“In order to be better you must learn something new each and every day.”

“The vast majority of us have maybe a couple ranges of learning that we endeavor to know exceptionally well — things identified with our occupations, obviously, and possibly a side interest or two. In any case, while it’s essential to build up a profound comprehension of the things that matter most to us, it is pretty much as imperative to add to a wide comprehension of the world when all is said in done.”

“A great deal of tragic individuals feel that learning for the sole purpose of learning is something for schoolchildren, and perhaps undergrads. Every one of the things there are to learn and realize that don’t affect specifically on their quick lives they release as “trivia”. Out in “this present reality”, they believe, there’s no time for such frivolities — there’s not kidding work to finish!”

“There are a considerable measure of good, useful motivations to make gaining some new useful knowledge a piece of your every day schedule, yet the best reason has nothing to do with common sense — we are learning individuals, and the deep-rooted routine of realizing is the thing that makes us people and our lives beneficial. In the event  optimistic considering insufficient.”

“There are so many awesome and incredible reasons for learning something new each and every single day!”

(1) Adapting over an extensive variety of subjects gives us a scope of points of view to approach in our own particular slender normal regions of specialization.

(2) Learning helps us all the more effortlessly and promptly adjust to new circumstances.

(3) An expansive information of new circumstances encourages advancement by rousing us to think innovatively and giving cases to take after.

(4) Learning develops our character and makes us all the more motivating to everyone around us.

(5) Learning makes us more sure.

(6) Learning imparts a comprehension of the authentic, social, and characteristic procedures that effect and farthest point our lives.

“When you learn something new each day it makes life so much more worth living and look forward to waking up to also.”

“Also…..make sure you have back up plan or what I call back up dreams and if and when one thing does not work….you always got something else you can utilize in its place.”

If I’m lucky! Sometimes I’ll have a string of four or five dreams, sometimes they are related to each other, and some times they are completely different.”

“What do you do with these many dreams?”

“You get in on them like they are already reality and keep moving forward!”

“Being able to be stay ready is easy if you keep learning something new each day and the more you learn……the more  ambitious you are to failing and know that “Well….that did not work, but let’s see if this will?”

“Failing becomes second nature and you just automatically keep creating more and more material and work.”

“Involving yourself in helping others along the way while you are making these dreams come true….. is what makes it all the worth the while and with all of the hard work and much effort becomes fun.”

“There are so many mentors I listen to who were once right where I am or was and they keep your juice running through your veins by listening to them.”

“Some mentors I love listening to are: Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, Tyler Perry, Bill Gates, 50 Cents, Michael Jordan, Martha Stewart, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Robert Kiyosaki, Guy Kawasaki, etc. and Evan Carmichael is my Daily Inspirator who shares others motivational stories which keeps me going while waiting my dreams to come true!”

“In conclusion always stay ready and ahead of the game. Don’t get discouraged and don’t give up and keep on moving forward and always remember don’t believe that one idea is it……..and when it does not work and we are born with dreams with a “S” and we must take them and use them to the best of our ability.”

This is why God made angels and we can never do it all alone and must be willing to share with others and always ready to accept that we are not perfect and this is the greatness which makes us different from all of the rest.”

“Dreams are to given to a chosen few and remember they help make us better when we pursue them.”

“How would they become true if we did not try our best to make them a reality to better our lives.”

“If we don’t use them, we lose them and how would we ever know if we don’t try….. and no matter how crazy they may seem to others, never stop believing in oneself. For…if we don’t believe in ourselves, who will?”

“Stay ready!”

Making It Happen by Valerie Brown Cheers

“You must believe it to achieve it!”

“Most of the time we want but we must believe it to receive it.”

“We don’t become what we want and much of the time we won’t get what we want either.”

“We have to act as though we are there already there and want it more than anything else in this world.”

“Claim it as yours and achieve it like you do really believe it as yours.”

“You work and work and you won’t have it at first, but you still have to work like you are already a success story.”

“This is where the believing to achieve it come into play.”

“If we have the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains and anything is possible.”

“What do you believe?

“Do you believe you are worthy of happiness, success, comfort, peace, joy and love and do you believe that they are a part of your birthright, like Oprah Winfrey stated?”

“I love being different and being different can be a blessing in tself…… and you have this courage that comes from this incredible spirit which we so desire and were born with from the universe.”

“I love working with many people and love treating others the way I want to be treated all of the time.”

“Since a kid had big ideas and dreams and always thought that I had plenty of time to pursue these things….not knowing that even at an early age    I could have went for them.”

“But…..it is never too late to pursue your dreams!”

“So now at age 61……pumped up..motivated….go to bed thinking about inventing…wake up thinking about inventing…. and live for making better ways that can help make our universe a better place for our children to be entitled to greater well-being from our Design by Val Go Green Backpack.”

“God blessed me to be born with degenerative disease, therefore, I do believe that my idea of Design by Val Go Green Products will become a reality very soon and it will help others who need their neck protected at all times..”

“I went and found the best products made to be included into something which everyone needs at one point in their life….and that is a backpack but not only will be a backpack, but it will help with our posture and keep that neck protected from eventually causing lumbar problems by protecting that C1-C5 area of the neck.”

“We all can use something to carry our personal things which will alleviate us having to carry on our arms or hands……which we don’t have to put pressure onto our bodies causing pain to our backs and eventually spine….so this is when I came up with the idea of the Design by Val Go Green Neck Protector Backpack.”

“I found a protocol which was used for soldiers during the Civil War which was called a knapsack and was the closest to what I wanted for my backpack and that is to protect that neck and posture while being on your feet for long periods of time.”

“This backpack specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 37,893, dated March 17, 1863 designed by DeWitt Clinton Baxter and was the skeleton type protocol……which I would use for my backpack, but only using recyclable materials and much lighter for our children and everyone carrying protecting our neck and back.”

“Now remember this is just my dream and my project managers are the ones who will take what I have given to them and make this project work and become a real product.”

“I just feel really good about this whole project and have many more ideas for our children Design by Val Go Green Products.”

“You just have to do it and cannot just talk about it, but you have to put it down on paper and explain why you believe your dream should become a real product or reality for helping our world.”

“This will not be your ordinary backpack…. but will be the very first of its kind with a neck protector, massagers and the massagers can be removed and used for all our body parts relieving stress with pockets to carry your iPod also.”

“I just wanted to encourage those of you who have ideas to use them or you will lose them.”

“Make them yours even though they are only a dream and put them out there for others to see and if good enough somebody will help you.”

“Most of all….you must believe it to receive it……and you must have a passion in what you believe and hold onto to your belief and don’t let anybody cause you to give up your dreams!”

“Remember hold onto your beliefs and keep YOUR dreams alive by acting on them and it will be hard at first… but don’t give up!” ~ Valerie J Brown

Tree of Life by Valerie Brown Cheers

“I dedicate this story to my Ms. Virginia Porges Wise.”

“Ms Virginia was my mentor and she is now in heaven and was never real sick… but when she started taking prescribed medications at age 89 for the very first time……something went really wrong.”

“At age 89….Ms Virginia was a dancer.”

“Every morning she did her splits and routine to stay in shape.”

“She visited the neighborhood nursing homes and encouraged those in wheelchairs to do exercises with her while in their chairs and she was amazing.”

“She would teach them how to do the Kegel exercise while sitting.”

“Ms Virginia was a dance instructor for many years even at age 89.”

“I mean this wonderful and amazing angel use to do splits better than a cheerleader!”

“She graduated from Mary’s Institute when it was an all girls college.”

“She enjoyed writing poetry and had a wide variety of interests.”

“She described herself as a free spirit and a “student of the world”.”

And that she truly was……and you best believe when Ms. Virginia was in your presence….she would leave you with knowledge and something to remember her by for sure.”

“She lived life independently and on her own terms and not in nursing home, but by herself in her highrise loft apartment up until her death.”

“She made the most amazing cards from ole fashion colored paper & glue which she made from flour.”

“I would like to share something which Ms. Virginia shared with me and she asked me to promise her that I would get a book out describing how women can protect themselves from being raped and it would tire the perpetrator….but not yourself……and they would give up and think something is wrong with them.”

“Ms. Virginia showed me how important it was to keep the pelvic muscles tight and firm for when we got older and would also prevent urine leakage and she never had problems with.”

“She did her Kegel exercises like clockwork and when she first introduced me how important it was she drew stick figures to show me how to do the actual exercises.”

“It takes diligence to identify your pelvic floor muscles and learn how to contract and relax them.

It takes diligence to identify your pelvic floor muscles and learn how to contract and relax them. Here are some pointers according to the Mayo Clinic:

  • Find the right muscles. To identify your pelvic floor muscles, stop urination in midstream. If you succeed, you’ve got the right muscles.
  • Perfect your technique. Once you’ve identified your pelvic floor muscles, empty your bladder and lie on your back. Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for five seconds, and then relax for five seconds. Try it four or five times in a row. Work up to keeping the muscles contracted for 10 seconds at a time, relaxing for 10 seconds between contractions.
  • Maintain your focus. For best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles. Be careful not to flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Avoid holding your breath. Instead, breathe freely during the exercises.
  • Repeat 3 times a day. Aim for at least three sets of 10 repetitions a day.

“Don’t make a habit of using Kegel exercises to start and stop your urine stream. Doing Kegel exercises while emptying your bladder can actually weaken the muscles, as well as lead to incomplete emptying of the bladder — which increases the risk of a urinary tract infection.”

“Did you know that by tightening up these muscles….a woman can actually train herself to tigten up the vaginal muscles to the point of not allowing penetration?”

“Well…..yes we can and it works too and do not let anybody tell you it does not!”

“Children can be taught as well how to do these kegel exercises at very early ages and explained and they know more than we believe they do and kegel exercises can save them in bad situations when NO is not an option to a bad person.”

“If you train yourself to strengthen these muscles utilizing the kegel exercises, you can prevent penetration and don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t.”

“We will discuss a little bit about The Root Chakra and meditation.”

“No, Kegel is not a posture in Yoga ……but is an invaluable stretch for the muscle that encircles the vagina and anus in women and the base of the penis and anus in men. It is the pubococcygeus (aka PC muscle). It stretches from the pubic bone to the coccyx, and can be strengthened with the Kegel exercise.”

The Kegel Exercise

“This simple exercise helps to unblock the Root Chakra, too. It helps women in childbirth, improves bladder control and enhances orgasmic intensity for both sexes. Horses, dogs and cats all use this muscle when they wag their tail, which is a funny bit of trivia found online.”

“Men who have a problem holding back during sex can improve their stamina by doing the Kegel exercise. Women can improve the strength of their uterus to help prevent it from dropping as they get older (which eliminates pain during intercourse), or after childbirth. The muscles are toned in this area with the Kegel exercise.”

How To Do Kegel Exercises

  • To learn how to feel the PC muscle the first time, sit on a toilet and begin to urinate. Before you are ready, try to stop the urine from flowing. When you do this, you are actually using this muscle. Many people squeeze the muscles around their anus and miss the area referred to. It takes practice.
  • Start by squeezing the muscles between your genitalia and your anus. If you need to look in an anatomy book to get this right, by all means do so at a library or online. Count 3 seconds. Then release and relax. Keep repeating this until you feel the muscle is getting tired.
  • Try to do 3 to 5 sets of counting to 3 and releasing. Then you can lengthen the time as the muscle gets stronger.
  • Practice this many times a day. When you feel proficient at finding the exact muscle and you see the results, you can choose for your own body how many times a day you should do this and how long to count. Some people prefer to squeeze 5 to 10 seconds.
  • Relax in between.
  • If it helps you to breathe with this, exhale and squeeze, and then inhale and relax the entire area.

You can do this without anyone even being aware of it. So, you can be working on your Root Chakra while doing other chores or while sitting in long meetings. And now to the Yoga postures for the Root Chakra.
