Quotes to Remember by Valerie Cheers Brown

I love inspirational quotes and I would like to share with you some which really inspire me even more and give hope never wanting to give up!

Can you even fathom doing more with less, well it is true and I know 1st hand just how much having less is best ?

For some odd but good reason or another having less allows you the freedom to work even harder and more.

Being grateful and thankful helps a whole lot and what really helps is not taking the small things for granted which we sometimes do.

I’ve never been the kind of individual who memorizes mantras or quotations. In any case, all things considered, I cherish rousing quotes as much as anyone else. Quotes give a point of view quick fix, motivation, and support exactly when we require it most.

“I don’t know exactly where ideas come from, but when I’m working well ideas just appear. I’ve heard other people say similar things – so it’s one of the ways I know there’s help and guidance out there. It’s just a matter of our figuring out how to receive the ideas or information that are waiting to be heard.” ― Jim Henson  

It is much more rewarding to do more with less. 

Less is more! Yes to Less!

As I unclutter my life, I free myself to answer the callings of my soul.

Simplicity. Less stuff. Less work. Less expense. Equals. More money. More time. More joy. Less equals more.  

Doing more with less, is a crucial principle to learn; especially if you’re going to be in business in this rapidly changing world. Robert Kiyosaki

A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have.

As you grow in this business, you learn how to do more with less.

We have to learn to do the same with less, or even more with less.

The greatest work you will ever do is within the walls of your own home.

The more you love your decisions the less you need others to love them. Being confident in your decisions is a key principle to living a free life.

Doing more with less is a crucial principle to learn; especially if you’re going to be in business in this rapidly changing world.

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. – Hippocrates

Why is the state of Missouri still pro-Cannabis?

Why would the state of Missouri want to deny healing and even curing to people?

Why are people imprisoned for selling something that should be legal?

When the majority are incarcerated for the same thing, does this not make one think?

Why are things which are grown and green illegal or considered unwanted weeds?

Why do some continue to trust in man-made products which destroy something which no matter how much you try to destroy comes back even stronger when green?

The Mustard Seed

Mustard trees have been found in different areas all through the world. Despite the fact that it’s one of the littlest seeds, the trees can grow up to 20 feet tall and 20 feet wide. The tree can develop in parched, dry atmospheres and flourish even in earth or sandy soil. It can develop in hot, dry climate or cool, wet atmospheres. I see the mustard seed as being typical of confidence in that our confidence can be tried in the “dry times”, the most troublesome of circumstances (dry season, poor soil, and in earth or sandy ground). Likewise, regardless of the fact that the tree is chopped down to the storage compartment, it can become back again, so the similarity is that notwithstanding amid times of pruning, the devotee can overcome and return more grounded than any time in recent memory, much the same as the mustard tree that has been extremely pruned and regardless of the fact that just a little piece of confidence remains.

The mustard tree is dry spell tolerant and in the event that we have confidence even the span of a little mustard seed, we also can endure the dry times in our lives, the troublesome developing seasons of a Christian, and notwithstanding when we are “planted” in poor soil we can in any case develop, regardless of the fact that we just have a little measure of confidence. By the way, the mustard tree has numerous employments. The leaves can be made into, you got it, mustard. The tree can deliver consumable salts, some have utilized the little branches as toothbrushes, the leaves have been appeared to avoid tooth rot and reduce tooth hurts. The ramifications of this tree are not lost in a dead and rotting world.

When Mother Nature has something to do with creations no matter how hard man tries to destroy they come back and I have seen with my own eyes.

Isn’t it amazing how the mustard seed comes back on its own without any constant planting or even if you try to kill something which is good and green and to be used as food, it manages to come back on its own and even more?

Censured Cannabis

There is no plant on Earth more censured than Cannabis. We’re discussing a living life form which governments have taken upon themselves to assign as an illicit substance. Notwithstanding no current proof of anybody continually biting the dust of a cannabis overdose, ownership of this plant is still illicit in numerous parts. Cannabis has been found to smother disease, lessen circulatory strain, treat glaucoma, reduce torment and even repress HIV. It is a cancer prevention agent, mitigating and neuroprotective. Could you see all the more now why it’s illicit?

Why does our society in many places still mainly in the United States deny something which is not needed any studying with many testimonies denied to many people’s healing?

No Independent Study Has Ever Linked Marijuana To Psychosocial Problems

Cannabis is a standout amongst the most intense mending plants on the planet. Many studies have made pseudoscientific endeavors to show that youngsters who use cannabis tend to encounter mental, social issues and mental decrease. In any case, there is no confirmation that pot use is straightforwardly connected with such issues, as per the consequences of a study distributed in The Lancet.

“Right now, there is no solid confirmation that utilization of cannabis of itself causes mental or social issues, for example, dysfunctional behavior or school disappointment, lead study creator Dr. John Macleod of the University of Birmingham in the UK told Reuters Health.

“There is a lot of confirmation that cannabis use is connected with these things, however this affiliation could have a few clarifications,” he said, refering to variables, for example, affliction in early life, which may itself be connected with cannabis use and psychosocial issues.

Macleod and his group evaluated 48 long haul ponders, 16 of which gave the most astounding quality data about the relationship between unlawful medication use reported by individuals 25 years of age or more youthful and later mental or social issues. A large portion of the medication particular results included cannabis use.

Please read this blog for more researched facts with citations:

http://hemptherapy.blogspot.com/2013/11/still-believe-nature-got-it-wrong-top.html

Cannabis use was not reliably connected with fierce or introverted conduct, or with mental issues.

Are maybe the wrong people being incarcerated in this world?

Is it a crime to deny something which is proven in helping save people’s lives?

Does it take a rocket scientist to make something which has no side effects legal which is a proven healer and perhaps, get rid of prescribed medications which have many side effects and are not healing but make you have to take another medication to fix what that medication did to you?

Did you know that Cannabis is a food?

Marijuana & the Bible

And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more. — Ezekiel 34:29


“The Lord said unto me, ‘I will take my rest and I will consider in my dwelling place like a clear heat upon herbs.’ ” — Isaiah 18:4-5

What would Jesus do regarding medical marijuana?

Despite common knowledge and widespread scientific support, the federal government has for nearly 30 years kept cannabis in schedule 1 as a deliberate way to deny patients access to medical marijuana. This includes people suffering from asthma, cancer, migraine headache, chronic pain, spasticity, glaucoma, arthritis, and provides relief for many other conditions. As a result, people at various locations across the USA have had to risk and suffer years in prison for providing medical marijuana to patients as an act of compassion and personal conscience. What would Jesus do? He chose to break the law in order to heal the sick.

“At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn, and his disciples were hungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat. 2) But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day 3) But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was hungered, and they that were with him? … 10) And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered, And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him. 11) And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it and lift it out? 12) How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. 13) Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other. 14) Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. 15) But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence, and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all; 16) And charged them that they should not make him known.” (Matthew 12: 1-2, 10-16) (also see Mark 3, Luke 13, John 9)

Should people give blind obedience to government?

Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, 2) Why do thy disciple transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.” 3) But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? … 7) Ye hypocrites! … 12) Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? 13) But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. 14) Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind, And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. (Matthew 15:1-3, 7, 12-14)

Embrace The Struggle by Valerie Brown Cheers

“You have to STOP being so afraid of your dreams.”

“I often examine my ways as the Bible teaches us.”

“We have to believe in ourselves first and secondly have faith and keep working your butt off.”embrace-the-struggle“At some point in our lives we will all live on Struggle Street.”

“Life is one big beautiful struggle and if you disagree with this….keep on living.”

“When you truly are aiming for your dreams…God will start to positioning you in paths which increasingly help with embracing the struggle.”

“He will start to put all of these amazing people, places and things into your path.”

Zig Ziglar says, “You don’t get anywhere in life by yourself…..others are always involved.”

“To really carry on with an effective life, one loaded with activity, reason and development, we need to incline toward, and grasp, torment and battle.”

“We need to inspire ourselves past what we can presently perform, so we can achieve more prominent things tomorrow.”

“Think about it if you fight and embrace that struggle, you will be compensated with courage and strength you will need to live that legendary life you worked so very hard for.”

“If we avoid the struggle….you are taking the easy way out many take each and everyday when they quit or give up.”

“We must embrace the struggle and consider it a blessing that it is hard for us.”

I will always remember a quote I heard motivational speaker, Les Brown say, “If you do what is easy your life will be hard.  If you do what is hard your life will be easy.”

“Which would you prefer?”

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”.”

mayaangelou

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.

HaHa “Music 101” by Valerie Brown Cheers

music class

“Having a Haha moment and sick and tired of being sick and tired!”

“Have you ever just laughed at yourself from talking with oneself?”

“Well….it is quite okay to laugh at ourselves.”

“Having a music moment along with a Haha moment.”

“Where would we be without music?”

“I love music and all music is my favorite.” ~ Valerie J Brown

“Here is what music means to our brains.”

“Science has shown that when children learn to play music, their brains begin to hear and process sounds that they couldn’t otherwise hear. This helps them develop “neurophysiological distinction” between certain sounds that can aid in literacy, which can translate into improved academic results for kids.”

“Everybody is different and we must listen to our own bodies and different bodies, different music means different things to our bodies depending on our peace within.”

“Can you write or read with music?”

“I’m a major enthusiast of music, and utilization it a great deal when working, yet I had no clue about how it truly influences our brains and bodies. Since music is such a major piece of our lives, I thought it would be fascinating and valuable to observe a portion of the ways we respond to it without notwithstanding figuring it out.”

“Without music, life would be a mistake” —Friedrich Nietzsche

“Obviously, music influences various regions of the cerebrum, as should be obvious in the picture beneath, so we’re just touching the most superficial layer with this post, however how about we hop in!”

“Let’s have some fun and take look at different kinds of music and the moods and what they do for most of us!”

R&B Personally, I define R&B as being simply soulful. I see it personified as an ageless artist, forever painting the dreams of the emotions (those of the songwriter, the audience, and even those of seemingly inanimate things such as a city, etc.) in song. For instance, Gerald Levert’s duet with Antoinette Roberson “Taking Everything” was just full of emotion just like many of his other songs. Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” told a story of even today, the lyrics hold truth and an artist way before his time, still lives through his incredible music and lyrics right not at this moment today!

Jazz never makes me sad! Jazz inspires me or at least makes me feel better (like the blues can and does too), or even makes me happy and we become those instruments being played and even though we may not be able to play, with jazz we can with our minds and our souls and those instruments take you somewhere like no other music ever can or has! Even the most painful solo from a sax player (who hurt this man?) will and can overwhelm with good vibes! Jazz, to me is good music to listen to on a rainy day and makes the day so much brighter and it is like those instruments are the sun and the artist’s shine with the sun’s glow of such an amazing groove which is this most incredible feeling ever!  Jazz makes you feel nostalgic and takes you back, way back to a time when Jazz was the thing and to be a part of the scene was being in a jazz club no matter what age you could get away with being there! I love it because even though was not born during the era of my most favorites, i.e Miles, Cab Calloway, etc. it seems like I was there taking a trip through the recesses of your mind or other worlds.

Funk Can not be explained in one word, yet no music really can, but many kinds of music involve funk and may get disagreement with this but my explaining would be that funk tells a story and deep logical premise, i.e. James Brown, Parliament Funkdelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, etc.  Funk is a music genre that originated in the mid to late 1960s when African-American musicians created a rhythmic, danceable new form of music through a mixture of soulmusic, jazz, and R&B. Funk de-emphasizes melody and harmony and brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funk] To me funk makes you feel, hear and calls for discussion of the instruments how played by the various artists, etc. One song can be played by many different artist, yet still basically sound the same, but when you know Funk, and get to know the artist, you can almost tell who is to be identified with the instrument.

Blues In case you’re feeling somewhat anxious or restless, you may need to listen to soul. It may sound irrational since soul are… well… blue, however this cadence of music can moderate your heart rate a little and cool you.

Rock & Punk These lively styles of music can help your inclination levels in the event that you let it. On the off-chance that you appreciate it, shake and punk music can give you an adrenaline and jolt of energy.

Reggae  Reggae is one of the sorts of music classifications that can naturally chill you out. Some say reggae music is in view of the musicality of the solid human heart very still. Reggae icon, Bob Marley’s messages of universal love is being brought back around even today and such poetic inspiration for all ages!  For those who don’t know much about the late Jamaican reggae crooner, it may be surprising to see a children’s musical inspired by his message.

Love Songs  Not highly recommended when missing somebody, but if good lyrics could soothe the soul and mind too! lol 😉 Love songs can be all genre of music and lots has lyrics which can be the message even with no song being sung.

Classic  Great music for studying, reading, just unwinding and excellent for calming a whining baby. Classical music is and will be around forever and so incredible for healing with its incredible healing power from centuries ago! It heals the soul, body and great therapy for the mind for all ages and even animals are even calmed to classical music!

Rap & Hip Hop This kind can modify your state of mind in a couple of routes relying upon the tune’s verses, beat and general message. Rap melodies frequently advance annoyance, misogyny and viciousness, yet a few individuals say that rap unwinds them. Possibly keep away from ‘gangsta rap’ and pick something with more cognizant verses and positive, but there are messages I have found that must thoroughly give them a chance and listen!

Overwhelming Heavy Metal These normally forceful verses and songs can positively have specific negative consequences for your temperament. In any case, similar to rap and hip bounce, everybody is distinctive and some may contend that individuals who listen to substantial metal music have higher self-regard.

Country I love this music and can get the same effect as the blues, often with beautiful lyrics with such meaningful love stories getting straight and right to the point, although can be quite depressing too if you miss somebody or just broke up with somebody! lol

New Age New Age is largely instrumental with a variety of instruments and sounds from all over the world. Listening to new age music brings about a sense of tranquility and is excellent for meditation and relaxation.

Broadway or Movie Soundtracks Love listening to music from movie scores or soundtracks and there is so much different genres and inspiration plays a big part of this music and you would be surprised what music is played in movies. I often take a pen and paper and write down or read the credits at the end of the movie that don’t go to fast!  The love songs can be good comfort to the soul and mind and love listening to music soundtracks over and over again. lol

Latino  Latino music is a definite energy booster. Whether it’s a hard day at the office or an overall sense of exhaustion, Latino tunes can effectively eliminate symptoms of fatigue. Latino music is also good for exercising or just moving right in your seat where you sit. I love Latino how the music puts you in an elevated state of wanting to move always! Very rare sad Latino music unless you are listening to love songs or foreign Latino music!

Disco  This word just makes me think of Donna Summer anytime I hear the word disco! This music also makes you want to get out of your seat or even move while sitting, but mostly will make you want to get up and move to the disco beat groove! It is a great start for a new day and what a beginning it gives the soul, body and mind!   Disco is also good for exercising too. All music is good for exercising no matter what the beat is and exercising on the floor on the feet, on the floor on a mat, in the bed if you are doing therapy and also sitting can exercise too while at work or just at the desk can groove to the disco beat too!

Meditation  Save the best for last and there is so much meditation music nowadays for all kinds of illnesses, disease, etc. and technically meditation may not be on the list of different music genres, but by listening to meditative music, you can reduce stress levels and anxiety while increasing a sense of tranquility and overall relaxation. Let out a little om along with it and you’ll be blissed out in no time.  Also, an excellent for fussy baby too and even while in the car relaxes you and baby while driving so when get home, baby will rest easy as you nap too!  Meditation is also good for to be mother’s and allowing your unborn baby to listen to soothing meditation music, be it classic or whatever helps relax baby and mother too!

“Most of all music is essential for learning and why it was taken away from many schools in the United States is very puzzling. Music also helps with many kid diseases such as ADD or ADHD and there is proven fact which shows improvement with our children by listening to music.  Music is also good for the elder and helps with memory loss and would be a good tool to be used in nursing homes, but we the family of our loved ones must be the ones to make this happen not only for our loved ones, but all elders! Pain does not like music and can help with nerve pain, headaches, migraines, etc. Music is being studied showing that also helps with unborn child and can also help mother to have a much easier delivery too! ”

“Music is a force to reckoned with and has been pulled out of the schools in the United States, and even made fun of by many and even called crazy in believing it to be a cure for healing as/or therapy!”

“What could possibly hurt trying something to see if it will help and we have begun in the United States taking our lives into our own hands and not only talking about but implementing many ways for utilizing music as a healing remedy and therapy!”

Chipper for Music

“Music is an inherent part of our nature and who we are in so many ways. Our experiences with music start in early childhood and unquestionably last a lifetime. Extensive research has shown lately that exposing children to music stimulates their overall intelligence and emotional development. Having children listen to different types of music also nurtures their self-esteem while encouraging creativity, self-confidence and curiosity.”

Haha “Balls of Steel” by Valerie Brown Cheers

“Balls of steel aren’t the only things required on the road to production. Patience is paramount.”

“Yesssssss….having a Haha day right now and about to shout it out as loud as I can!”

“You ever have one of those days where you are just sick and tired of being sick and tired?”

“Well….we all of us do and if you say you don’t you are normal and so not cool at all.” lol 😉

“Sometimes it does us good to just shout out  loud…… Haha and it is okay to sound like a bird….cause if you say it out loud and really loud…….this is exactly what you sound like is a bird cawking!” lol 🙂

“Anyway, do you know somebody who has balls of steel?”

“Do you know somebody who no matter what pretends to be okay all of the time…..when they aren’t?”

“This is why it is so good to laugh at oneself and shout it out, “Haha!” lol

“You have to be a special kind of person who has patience!”

“Just having patience is not what it is cut out to be at all.”

“There are many hidden agendas which come with being patient.”

“Being patient is a piece of cake compared to the not giving up part which comes along with it if you like what you do in life.”

“You know…….. it takes a really big person to have balls of steel!”

“Balls of steel are not the only things required on the road to production!”

“Guess what is?”

“Patience is paramount!” 😉

“I’m not discussing the persistence needed to sit tight and wait for ole Saint Nick!”

“I mean the kind that places ties in your stomach and alarms the damnation out of you, knowing you could truly be cheated or even screwed!” 😦

“Yet, notwithstanding that trepidation, you acknowledge there is no other choice than being patient.”

“I’m alluding to the sort of persistence obliged when you compose without an agreement.”

“Remember…..we are only speaking of what we don’t see….but it does not mean that because what we don’t see it is not there…….sometimes seeing is also not believing…. but anyway….

“No papers. No legal advisors….at least that . No container of champagne popping. Only dreams. That is the means by which we rolled.” lol

“This sort of tolerance and trust takes enormous balls… and a little madness to go along with it…… and this is where the Haha moments come into play.”

“We had to find a method to our own madness and Haha moments is what the doctor ordered helps to make us laugh at ourself.”

“You know……you got to keep laughter in your life to keep from crying!.”

“So the next time you feel like giving up or even quitting……..DON’T and just shout it out!”

“Haha…….as loud as you can and it is okay to laugh at oneself……. and it is even funnier when we laugh at ourselves out loud.”

“Have a great Haha day and don’t forget to laugh at yourself!” 😉 😉 ❤

P.S. “It is okay to wait and wait and wait and wait………especially if you believe in yourself!  And if you have those who love you around you……all the more to wait and wait and wait……One day, it will all make sense and I will let you know when it does”! Haha 😉 !!
