You’re not here to fear your future – you’re here to shape it! So live it, love it, treasure it... most of all, treasure you!

Time and time again I’ve been told to share the inspirational messages from my Penny Jewelry line on this blog. So in the spirit of the holiday season and the upcoming new year, I thought now would be a great time to share these messages.

Here are the messages from the three main Penny Jewelry Collection. They were designed to work together to inspire, to give and to share…

Penny Best Jewelry Collection says:
Be the best person you can be for you.

To have no regrets is to do your best in every given moment. Doing your best means whatever you do you're doing it from the goodness of your heart – you’re doing it based on your truth.

On your journey to do better, on your path to empowerment, you're going to find obstacles that will challenge you to make you stronger, make you think and rethink what you're doing.

Thinking strengthens your mind, and your strong mind will understand that challenges you face aren't placed before you so you can back down and allow them to consume you, but rather so you can learn to face them fearlessly, and with authority – knowing without a doubt they're offering you an opportunity to reach greater heights!

Penny Wish Collection says: Enjoy the present – enjoy this gift.

Know that whatever position you occupy, you’re an intricate part of this world. Whether you're aware of this or not, you have your place and purpose. Life's journey can be challenging at times, but no matter how dark a day may seem, or how hopeless a moment can feel, just remember that days can be anew, and moments can change.

Don't spend too much time being upset with what happened in the past. Don't get carried away with worrisome thoughts of what may or may not occur in the future. Just focus on the

present. Focus on what you can do right now – this very moment – to make this moment better than the last... Remember: The past is history, the future a mystery, but the present is a gift, which is why it's called the present.

Penny Love Collection says: Love yourself – only then can you truly love another.

What ultimately defines you is not only how you love at times of comfort and convenience, but also how you love at times of challenge and controversy. When you truly love a person, you'll want nothing less than to give to them, be your best for them, inspire them, support their dreams and enhance their life.

But what's most important is that you recognize this way of loving someone stands true as well when it comes to you loving you.

Well, it’s that time of year – we’re near the end of 2009. I hope you've all enjoyed what I’ve been sharing here on this blog.

I would like to thank you for your following and for reminding me to keep writing. Your support has meant the world to me, especially in moments when I don’t feel my best.

Thank you for inspiring me to share the things I do. I wish you all a beautiful holiday season and the best of everything the new year will bring!

Do you observe or evaluate: Is your communication style getting you in trouble?

There will always be situations and circumstances in your life when someone will cross some personal boundary, triggering strong emotional responses.

When someone pushes your buttons, it’s tempting to want to push back. But deep down, you know this is not the best way to deal with things — it’s not productive, it wastes precious time and energy, and creates more turbulence in your life.

So the question: Is your communication style one of an observer, or an evaluator? The difference with these two styles is the difference between practicing effective communication (one that has a strong chance of leading to a healthy outcome), or ineffective communication (one that hinders any chance of a healthy outcome).

For instance, you may be walking into the kitchen wondering if you need to add anything to the grocery list and your partner notices your silence and asks, “Are you upset about something?” You reply, “ I’m not upset about anything, I’m just wondering if there’s anything else I need to add to the grocery list.”

Your partner responded to your silence with an evaluation, not an observation. Any time you attach meaning to an action, that is an evaluation (or interpretation). Here are some more examples. See if you can figure out which is the observation and which is the evaluation:

1. “I see that your work is more important to you than our family.”
2. “You have been working the weekends for the past few weeks.”

1. “You don’t seem to care about me anymore.”
2. “You don’t kiss and hug me like you used to.”

1. “I saw you flirting with that man at the party.”
2. “I saw you talking with that man at the party for more than an hour.”

Well… how did you do? In all three sets, the first statement is the evaluation (or interpretation). Was that obvious to you? How do you normally communicate?

Whenever you find yourself responding with an emotional reaction, stop for a moment and try to discern the difference between your interpretation of the event and the objective observation of the event.

Observations are empowering because they allow you to direct the flow of the conversation based on facts – not based on interpretation of the facts. It gives you a solid reason to ask the other person why something happened the way it did. When you conduct a dialogue based on facts, your communication will feel more “grounded.”

Even if the other person can't quite put their finger on what is different in you, they will feel the maturity in the way you carry the conversation. Try it out and see for yourself how this objective observation style of communicating can cause shifts in your life for the better.

Feeling true pleasure and pain: What it means to feel alive and well!

Many years ago, someone very special wrote me a very long letter. Though the whole letter was beautiful and well thought, there were few sentences in particular at the end that really stood out for me. But I’ve forgotten about this letter since.

Then just a few days ago, I stumbled upon this letter in some folder I’ve forgotten about on my laptop. So I scrolled to see these few lines once again.

Since the last time I saw this letter, I’ve grown and evolved so much that these particular phrases make even more sense to me now than they did the first time I read them. And so it is why I want to share with you the life lessons and understanding with which they carry.
Since I can’t share the whole letter, I’ll share the last paragraph where the phrases to which I’m referring, reside. (Uncut).

“In the end, I still must thank you for the happiness you did bring me. I thank you for the simple things like my first oysters, better hair spray, and aspiring to play the piano. I dreamed of sometime in the near future, being able to play for you. I thank you for being an Angel in my life and aspiring me to want to continue being good in this dark world. Thank you for making me feel, true pleasure and pain. Thank you for this feeling of being so alive!”

So the thing that stood out for me is: “Thank you for making me feel, true pleasure and pain. Thank you for this feeling of being so alive!”

This wonderful person knew what it meant to feel alive! He was able to recognize and appreciate both the light and the dark – the pleasure and the pain. I’ve written many articles on this. I’ve shared at length that it is in accepting both your light and dark sides that makes you complete – makes you feel alive!

You can’t be complete if you only know one spectrum of yourself and not the other; you can’t truly know happiness if you’ve never felt the opposite, or know what works for you if you’ve never experienced the things that don’t. And so it is we must feel both pleasure and pain in order to grow and make better choices for our lives.

Here’s the thing: there are really only two feelings at play at all times – they are pleasure and pain. Deep down, I’ve always known this but never knew quite how to articulate it. That is why this statement “Thank you for making me feel, true pleasure and pain” strike a chord with me.

And now, throughout my own findings and teachings, I’ve come to discover many other highly credible authors, advisors, healers and leaders in this world who have also shared this same understanding of life in their speech and literature.

A simple articulation of this pleasure-pain notion is one shared by Dr. Deepak Chopra, a world-renowned authority in the field of mind-body healing, best-selling author, and a global force in the field of human empowerment.

He has this to say:

“There are really only two emotions: pleasure and pain — either it feels good or it hurts. Most people believe that the two fundamental emotions are love and fear, but these are really just the ways we respond to the potential for pleasure and pain. Love means we want to get closer to it because we think it will bring us pleasure. Fear means we want to move away because we think it will bring pain.

The optimal and truest condition is one of balance. Any time we have emotional turbulence, we upset our natural internal balance, which can block our spiritual evolution and may even disconnect us from synchronicity. This is not to say that emotions are, in themselves, harmful or to be avoided.

As human beings we will always have emotions; these are part of the human condition. But extremes of emotion will set us off course for our true life purpose. There will always be things in this world that cause great pain or anxiety. But we need to avoid getting stuck on one emotion.

Although our natural instinct is to avoid pain, we must deal with it when it occurs; otherwise, it will resurface later in life in some form of emotional turbulence. The form it takes may be different from what you expect, but it will resurface, perhaps as insomnia, or illness, or anxiety, or depression.”

In addition to this, here is what Master Stephen Co, one of the only four Master Pranic Healers in the world, has to say:

“Negative emotions themselves do not cause problems; our resistance to feeling them and releasing their energy in a constructive way causes the problem. When you avoid feeling negative emotions and beliefs, your body’s musculature physically constricts and holds on to them.

Held tightly in the body over a period of time, these negative emotions, limiting beliefs, and traumatic memories form blockages and energetic disturbances that lead to physical health problems. Certainly, your health can be affected adversely by external factors such as bacteria and viruses, as well as poor life choices, bad habits, and accidents.

But many health problems result from an energetic disturbance that is ultimately caused by the unconscious mind trapping a negative emotion or limiting belief in the body.”

It’s easy to be kind when you’re in a good mood: But how about when you’re in a bad mood?

Hide… don’t come out till you’re in a good mood! Just joking ☺.

Well, actually, I’m only half joking because sometimes you do have to spend some time alone to reflect, get out of a negative state, and find your balance again.

Because life experiences exist through relationships – relationship with your Self, family, co-workers, partner, friends – more often than not, we unconsciously allow our mood or state of mind to be affected by others, especially by those closest to us.

So really, when you think about it, it’s easier to be kind when a person is being nice to you, but it’s not so easy to remain kind when they’re not acting in ways that please you.

So instead of asking how do I remain kind when I’m in a bad mood, perhaps the more appropriate question here would be: How do I remain kind even when someone isn’t being kind to me?

Let’s face it, most of us let our ego step in when someone isn’t acting in a way that we prefer. The little devil on your left shoulder would have you judge, belittle or get even in some way. But the little angel on your other shoulder would remind you that you could handle things with class and civility.

If you choose to let ego in, you’re then choosing to react to the situation rather than act. Reactions are influenced by someone or something outside your Self. When you react, you’re showing that someone or something has control over how you feel and what you do – that someone or something has more power over you than you have over your Self.

However, if you choose to drop ego, you’re then choosing to act to the situation rather than react. This means you’re in control. You’re aware that you do not need to let anyone’s negative behavior alter the goodness you possess. You get to choose to act in alignment with your highest value – not react to the other person, whose values are not so impressive to you at the moment.

Sometimes you can do your best and have the best intentions, yet things don’t turn out kindly. There may have been others involved who didn’t have the same good intentions, or win-win mentality. This is why, sometimes, even the darkest of situations can arise from seemingly good people.

You see, even good people make mistakes. That’s how they learn. Perhaps whatever a person is doing that’s not so pleasing to you, you can now understand – because you yourself have been there before. You, too, have done things that are not so pleasing at times.

You’ve made mistakes, too, and you’ve learned; so you can now have some compassion for what others are going through – even if you don’t agree with it. Because you’ve been there before, you know it’s not easy to learn the right lessons, and sometimes you can make the same mistake numerous times before you actually learn.

You also understand how easy it is, while we’re learning, to be influenced by other people’s behaviors – how easy it is to let ego take over and react to others by reciprocating anything upsetting, rather than take control and act according to your highest values.

It takes practice to have control of your Self. It takes conscious awareness of all this to be able to act with class and civility. Just by keeping all this in mind, you would already be on the right track to self-refinement. This kind of awareness of your Self, in itself, can help you stay grounded – help you act with integrity.

When you find a person being disrespectful, even after you’ve been kind to them, you can’t help but feel disappointed. But give yourself credit for not wasting time reciprocating the disappointment.

By not reciprocating what you don’t appreciate, you’ve contributed to that person’s life lessons while they were making their mistakes. With this, you’ve made a positive difference altogether, whether you believe it or not.

Realizing this, instead of staying disappointed, you could perhaps make a decision to do your best to better the situation for yourself and the other person, but also, know when to walk away — especially if your display of kindness is being taken for granted.

Realize that when you’ve put in your best efforts to make things right with another person, yet they’re not meeting you half way, you can move on from that situation with no regrets. Your lessons there with them are over; it is time to move on to bigger, better, more rewarding lessons.

For the other person who is still learning the lesson, their mistakes may have to continue somewhere else, perhaps with someone else who is more at their level, or at their stage in life.

We all share one ultimate goal in life: Understand this and your life will flow

The next time you complain about someone or get upset with the way they are, do yourself a favor; stop and think about what I’m sharing here, instead.

On my last post, I talked about changing the way you think if you want to change your life. Well, here’s a way of thinking that you can adopt to help you see things in a healthier light. And when you see things in a healthier light, your life will flow in a positive direction.

So here goes.

On the surface, we’re all quite different from one another. For the most part, we may have different goals and different ways of achieving them. We go through different relationships in hopes to find the people who are most compatible with us. We try different work to find one that most suits us. We explore different things to see what most complement our interests.

Along the way we may find things that once interest us now no longer fit into our lives. We’re constantly learning, growing and evolving. Some of us do this faster than others – eager to know more, do more, be more, have more. And there are others who are too afraid of change and rather settle on having learned enough. And then there are those who settle between these two extremes.

Whatever the case, my point is this: Though we may all seem different on the surface, we do, however, share the same ultimate desire. This desire is the driving force that causes each of us to do what we do. The desire is... to be happy.

We could argue that it is fulfillment or wealth that we’re really after; or that it is joy, understanding, love, peace, power, or even health. But it really doesn’t matter how you describe it; these are all just different forms of the “ultimate goal” – to experience “happiness.” That’s what it all boils down to.

No matter how “right” or “wrong” we get, “good” or “bad,” we’re all just trying to find some form of happiness. Think about it; think about everything you’ve done. What was the ultimate feeling you were trying to achieve?

Whether you were having an argument with a loved one, working towards a goal, lying your way out of a situation, trying to make more money, you have your reasons. But no matter how you look at those reasons, the bottom line is: you want to experience some form of happiness – be it fulfillment, accomplishment, love or importance.

On our quest to find happiness, most of us can act in ways that don’t appear to support our ultimate goal of being happy. We fight, complain, compete, yell, belittle, blame, lie, manipulate and plain old disrespect. Is this really the way to achieve happiness? I think we can agree that they don’t sound like behaviors that promote or complement happy.

If we want to be happy, shouldn’t we be leaning more toward behaviors that are in alignment with happy? Such as patience, understanding, compassion, honest communication, gratitude, kindness, non-judgement… (you get the picture).

Saying this, however, I want to be clear that it’s okay to feel negative emotions and act out negative human behaviors. It is normal. It is natural. These feelings and behaviors serve a purpose. They are the things that trigger pain in order to help us learn, grow and do better.

These negativities, if you will, are just as much a part of you as the positivities. It is in accepting both your light and dark sides that makes you complete. You can’t be complete if you only know one spectrum of yourself and not the other; you can’t truly know happiness if you’ve never felt its opposite, or know what works for you if you’ve never experienced the things that don’t.

One side of you cannot truly exist without the other. And so it is that we have all these qualities within us, light and dark, that surface depending on what’s happening around and within us. And it is from these experiences of both light and dark that we can choose what suits us best, and how we want to live.

As Dr. Deepak Chopra would say: “When we are willing to embrace both the light and the dark sides of our selves, we can begin to heal both our selves and our relationships.” (Dr. Chopra is a world-renowned authority in the field of mind-body healing, best-selling author, and a global force in the field of human empowerment.)

Though these “negative” feelings and behaviors are well in order to serve their purpose for existence, however, they can be a hindrance if we don’t learn from them and move on. They can’t serve us well when we choose to dwell in them for an extended period of time – when we let them drown us into more darkness rather than use them to realize more light.

Even though we all ultimately want to achieve happiness, the choices each of us make and the path we take to get there are not going to be the same. So we will run into people who we will have much in common with and agree with, just as we will also run into others we don't agree with.

The ones we don’t agree with, we have a tendency to judge or even condemn. Deep down we want to think we’re better. We point out why they’re wrong so we can prove how we’re right. But here’s where I want to remind you that there’s really no “need” for you to do this.

You see, when you spend your time judging or complaining, you’re truly hurting yourself because you’re putting your energy in the wrong places, therefore, your life cannot flow. Ever noticed people who spend time complaining about others are also the very same people whose life isn’t flowing smoothly?

When you understand that we’re all working toward the same ultimate goal of finding happiness – and that each of us have our own set of challenges along the way that cause us to act or react the way we do – you can have a little more compassion and patience toward others.

You will understand that they, too, in their own way – regardless of how they may appear on the surface – are having a hard time finding a balance between their light and dark sides.

You don’t have to agree with the way they are, but you now understand that life challenges affect everyone differently. Some may even choose to react in an “evil” way and some, not so much. Whatever the case, it helps not to judge anyone. After all, you all do share something powerful in common – you all just want to be happy. So what’s there to judge, really?

So don’t be too concerned with other people’s path and life challenges. Do not waste energy condemning or criticizing. Instead, move along with class and civility while focusing on your own journey. This will save you more energy to focus on emotions that will contribute to what you need to do rather than take away from it.

Should you adopt this way of thinking, you’ll experience your life to flow more in your favor. And things that begin to happen to you may even feel miraculous. But you’ll soon learn that those “miraculous” things that are happening are not so much the result of miracles as they are the result of your deliberate intention to adopt a healthier way of thinking.

In closing, I’ll leave you with more words of wisdom from world-renowned author and leader of human empowerment, Dr. Deepak Chopra:

“Intention springs from our deepest desires, and those desires are shaped by karma. You and I don’t have the same karma; therefore we don’t have exactly the same desires. We have loved different people, knelt at different graves, prayed at different altars. The specifics of desire are unique to each of us.

Yet if you follow the chain of desire, in the end we are all the same. We want to be happy. We want to be fulfilled. We want meaning and purpose in our lives. We want a sense of connection with God or spirit.

We want other people to respect us and love us. And we want to feel safe. These desires are universal. But the route each of us takes to satisfy them is uniquely our own, based on our individual experiences and memories, or karma. We’re all heading for the same destination, but we take different roads. We arrive together, having traveled our different paths.”

Could your “beliefs” be affecting the kind of relationship you truly deserve?

Why are some people experiencing relationship bliss while others have resorted to “believing” that there’s no such thing? Well, this is what it all comes down to:

It’s all in the way you think and what you’ve “chosen” to adopt as your “belief” about relationships. How you were raised and the lessons and stories shared with you by people whom you thought were older and wiser, play a huge part in this.

Let me remind you: Older does not necessarily mean that they’re wiser or that they’re right. These individuals, as wonderful as they may be, could themselves have been misguided and therefore taught you things that may have done more harm to your life decisions than good.

What makes it worse is that their misguided teachings got passed down from generation to generation. And no one even stopped to question, “Where did this information really come from? Who are those people who started it? What were their true intentions? What caused them to see this as their truth? Does their truth have to be my truth?”

We all experience life differently based on many variables including upbringing, religion, cultural beliefs and past experiences. All this collectively affects the choices we make; choices that lead to either joy or pain. And as a result, we all adopt different “truths” and end up attracting others who agree with our truths – our beliefs.

We call them truths because that’s what we “know” based on our own experience. But what we may fail to understand here is that there are many truths out there, many different beliefs. Some will serve you better than others. So why not choose the beliefs that will serve you best?

It might do you good to remember this: Beliefs are nothing more than something you’ve held in your mind long enough that they’ve become “real” to you – they’ve become your “truth.”

We get used to a certain way of doing things and continue that pattern out of habit, simply because it is comfortable. In order to change your life (your relationships), you have to find a way to break the pattern. This is not easy but people do it everyday.

You can at anytime let go of your old beliefs that aren’t serving you well, in exchange for a belief that will change your life for the better. You need only decide that you want to do this, and then, just do it. This is not new news. Many people have done this already and have been able to attract great love in their lives. Why not you, too?

Most of us are on auto-pilot; we’ve been conforming to the ways of the society, thinking that that’s “the way things should be.” But, think about this: It only takes one person with inaccurate information to mislead another. That’s all it takes for a chain effect of distorted information to begin from one person to the next.

And with that, their children and those children’s children all learn and live a whole sequence of experiences that aren’t necessarily the ideal way of life. They grow up with misguided beliefs that they’re not even aware of. It’s like a fish would think that the world is all water. If they could talk, they wouldn’t even know to ask if that’s true or not. Why? Because they were born in water and water is all they know to be true. So why ask? But, if they were to ask, they would realize that there’s more, and that the world is not all water.

And so the same is said for people who are conditioned to certain beliefs. If their beliefs are making them happy and attracting the right relationships, then I would say, “Yes, hold on to those beliefs as they're serving you well. You are happy! It can’t get better than that.” But this isn’t the case, you see. Most people’s beliefs don’t make them happy; their beliefs attract the wrong relationships. And if this is the case with you, then perhaps you should question your beliefs.

Stop and ask: "Who said this is the way it should be? Who? My parents? The government? What makes them all so sure? The ads on TV and billboards?" Well, that’s a shame if you rely on ads for the truth. Print ads or stuff on TV are a way of marketing! Their intent is to sell you on what they want you to buy – make you feel like you need something even when you don’t.

Bottom line: If you want better relationships, you can certainly have it! It’s okay if your parents got divorced. Sure, you know people who fight often and still stay together. Maybe you even know couples that are in relationships for the wrong reasons. So what? Why should you let their experiences affect how you want your relationships to be? Their experiences are theirs; the choices, too – it has nothing to do with you. You have your own choices to make.

So choose: Do you want to look at all the relationships that aren’t working and believe them to be your truth, or do you want to look at all the relationships that are working, and make those your truth, instead?

Know this: It is your birthright to receive love in its purest form, regardless of who you are. But somehow for most of you, this concept got lost in translation since your birth. Maybe your parents didn’t know to tell you this. And perhaps your society at large don’t make a point to teach you this. So it is up to you to now know this. Be strong in this belief regardless of what you’ve been taught or have seen in the past.

If you don’t stand firm to a belief that makes you happy, you will continue to be influenced by all thoughts outside yourself. And thoughts outside yourself will only mislead you for they are not your own truth; they are someone else’s.

Your beliefs do not represent who you truly are. You may think they represent who you are for you have identified yourself with them for so long. But they’re not who you truly are. You see, life’s truth for you is this: Anything that is truly who you are will feel right to you – will make you feel happy, not sad or dissatisfied.

So ask yourself one simple question: “Do my beliefs about life and relationships make me happy? Do they inspire me?” If your answer isn’t yes, then it’s time to seriously question your old beliefs, perhaps even let them go. Really, perhaps it’s time to let them go.

So why have some people been able to achieve happy, healthy relationships? It’s definitely not because they’re lucky or that they’re more special than you. It has nothing to do with anything of that nature.

The only difference between you and them are your thoughts - the thoughts you’ve held in your head for so long now that they’ve become your beliefs; the beliefs that you identify with and have made part of who you are; the beliefs that are doing more harm than good.

What you need to do when adopting a new belief is choose one that makes you feel most happy and make that your truth. Don’t choose a belief that discourages you. So tune in to your feelings for they will tell you if you’re making the right choice. Plain and simple: The right choice will make you feel hopeful and excited, and the wrong choice will make you feel hopeless and unmotivated.

It is not magic when you see other happy couples or when you see others find their “soul mate” and are “in love.” It is not your imagination, nor is it theirs. It is real. But again, it is only as real as you want it to be. Your old beliefs may not allow you to accept that something this beautiful can be true for you, but your new beliefs will. So make a choice to change the way you think, today.

It never fails; even the greatest leaders in the world will attest to this: Change the way you think, and you will change your life.

Do you deprive others of speaking their mind?

Any friend or partner you choose in your life deserves the chance to speak his or her mind. This is the only way to achieve more clarity and understanding between the two of you. Not to mention, it is also one of the key elements that can make a friendship or a relationship blossom.

It doesn’t matter how much you dislike communicating or expressing yourself, but when you deprive your friends or partner of expressing themselves, you’re truly hurting yourself in the end.

There are a number of different ways you could be depriving others of communicating openly with you. You could turn your back on the conversation, say you’re busy or don’t have time. Maybe you deny that there’s anything worth talking about. Perhaps you even raise your voice to intimidate your way out of having the conversation.

Let me remind you: Nothing good can come out of this. This is so unhealthy in any relationship.

You may have done a good job avoiding the conversation, but this will not serve you or the relationship well in the long term. It’s like sweeping dirt under the mat. You’re hiding the mess, but not getting rid of the problem. This means one day something as simple as someone lifting the mat will be all it takes for the mess to blow up at you.

With this, I was going to write an article that can help you to communicate openly while allowing others to do the same, however, I came across an article quite appropriate to share regarding this topic. It is written by Relationship Coaches and Authors, Susie and Otto Collins. I’ve shared some of their advice here before on: Proven secrets for creating great relationships (Part 1-5).

Again, they’ve touched on a topic that I’ve wanted to share with you and I find what they have to say to parallel my thoughts. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I’m grateful to share with you what they wrote… Stay tuned to my next post on:

There is no reason for you to shrink when you get older

On my last post I promised I would give you more valuable information about your body that you’re going to want to share with people you love. But first, before you read any further, please be sure you’ve read my article: Alkalize: It will change your life! (Click here to read.)

If you don’t first read and understand what is shared in that article about pH balance, and acid/alkaline in your body, you won’t fully understand what I’m about to share here. So read that article first, then only continue reading below:

Ever wonder why it is that when people get older they often shrink? The reason is because when a person lives an acid lifestyle, after the body goes through its reserves, and after it stores in the fat, guess what’s next? It needs calcium – and so it continuously leeches it from your bones.

And as your bones get weaker and weaker, your body gets more and more compressed. So you see, the reason you shrink is not because you’re getting “old,” but because your bones are weak as a result of your body being too acidic throughout your life, and your body is now leeching from those bones.

And with this, you begin to break down in many other ways including your muscles getting flabby as the acid eats it away. Get more alkalinity in your diet and in your fluids so your body can deal with this and not have to pull from your reserves.

Most of what we consume including the air (pollution) we breathe is acidic. Even our negative thoughts alone create acid in our body. This is why it is so important to alkalize your body throughout your life. Discomfort, illness or any form of dis-ease cannot thrive in an
environment that is alkaline.

Again, don’t just take my word for it. Do your own research, get a second or third opinion from highly credible sources and you’ll find out the truth about this for yourself.

Learn about health as much as possible. Do this for yourself and the people you love so you can all learn to live a long, healthy life enjoying each other’s company. ☺
