YES… it Encourages a healthy lifestyle.
Studies have shown that meditating increases your immunity and helps fight off diseases. Meditation causes you to relax, which increases a compound called nitric oxide that dilates your blood vessels and causes your blood pressure to drop. A lower blood pressure improves your cardiovascular and immune health, as well as helps you to have a better night’s rest!

Faith Based TV

In a world where information comes at us a mile a minute, it is sometimes difficult to find programming that speaks to the complexities of life and the truth concerning God. The Shade Room has cracked the code with its YouTube series “The Same Room.”  With guests such as Adrienne Houghton, Angelica Nwas, Charlamagne tha god and more we get a peek into mainstream entertainers and their relationship with God. The world would like us to believe that most stars deny God when in truth most attribute their success to God.  Check out this incredible series on the link below.

How Do We Forgive?

We make up our minds and our hearts to let go, knowing that carrying around anger and judgment toward others or ourselves is a burden we no longer wish to bear.

Beginning to Learn to Forgive

By Rev. Bill Englehart

Jesus was once asked how often one should forgive. Seven times? His response was, “Not seven times, but, I tell you seventy-seven times” (Matthew 18:21-22). 

Seventy-seven is not a magic number. Earlier translations say seventy times seven, or 490. It was simply Jesus’ way of saying forgiveness can be infinite.

To understand forgiveness, we need to understand what it is not. It is not about condoning bad behavior or saying we must trust those who have mistreated us. It does not mean that there will be no justice for bad acts.

Consider this from H. Emilie Cady’s Lessons in Truth, written more than 100 years ago:

“To forgive does not simply mean to arrive at a place of indifference to those who do personal injury to us; it means far more than this. To forgive is to give for—to give some kind of actual definite good in return for evil given.”

This may seem like a tall order but when done, we can see the results straightaway. I have known parents who forgave the person who killed their child. When I asked why, they said that if they had not, they would be consumed with anger and bitterness. Forgiveness was the answer.

Scheduling Power

As a parent or guardian, if you want personal time you must master having a schedule! Schedules may seem daunting and tedious, but it will allow you to be intentional about time with your little genius and time with yourself. A schedule does not have to be complex, simply outline what time you play, sleep, go on outings and eat. Setting these simple boundaries will introduce peace into your day and consistency into the day of your little genius.

Why Meditate?

To Reduce stress!
One of the main benefits of meditation is stress reduction. Meditating in quite contemplation can help you relax, find peace of mind and ease tension so that you can control and manage your stress levels. Stress causes your heart rate and blood pressure to go up and too much of that can create health issues. Meditating for a few minutes every day helps you to let go of stress to achieve a relaxed state of mind.

What Is Forgiveness?

Forgiveness is the act of releasing ourselves from the bondage of an ongoing negative connection. Forgiveness resurrects our peace of mind from the perils of victimhood and releases our negative judgments.

Why Do We Forgive?

We forgive to reclaim our equilibrium. It is a joy to forgive. It’s also worthy of note that the “Lord’s Prayer” says, “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
