The 9 Essential Habits Of Mentally Strong People

The Huffington Post  | by  Carolyn Gregoire

In 1914, Thomas Edison’s lab burned down, and years’ worth of his work was destroyed. This could easily be described as the worst thing to happen to Edison, but the inventor instead chose to see it as an energizing opportunity that forced him to rebuild and re-examine much of his work. Edison reportedly said at the time: “Thank goodness all our mistakes were burned up. Now we can start again fresh.”

“In a world that we don’t control, tolerance is obviously an asset,” Ryan Holiday, author of the forthcoming The Obstacle Is The Way, told The Huffington Post. “But the ability to find energy and power from what we don’t control is an immense competitive advantage.”

He’s talking about mental strength, a difficult-to-define psychological concept that encompasses emotional intelligence, grit, resilience, self-control, mental toughness and mindfulness. It’s something that Edison had in spades, and it’s the reason that some people are able to overcome any obstacle, while others crumble at life’s daily challenges and frustrations.

The ability to cope with difficult emotions and situations is a significant predictor of our success and happiness. The most capable individuals in this way are able to turn any obstacle into a source of growth and opportunity. And while much has been made of what mentally strong people avoid doing – things like dwelling on the past, resenting the success of others and feeling sorry for themselves — what do they actually do? What tactics do they use to overcome adversity time and time again?

“Things that we think are obstacles are actually opportunities to do something,” says Holiday. “[To] be rewarded in some way that we never would have expected, provided that we address and don’t shirk from that obstacle.”

Here are 9 essential habits and practices of mentally strong people that can help you get through any challenge or hardship.

Life-Saving Discovery Between Stress and Addiction

Are You Addicted to Stress?  Learn Why Here.

by ExecutiveReasoning.com

Read about being addicted to stress, fear, anger, rage, abuse, hurting others, having power over others, etc – which further highlights how we are addicts to our own personal chemicals… amazing information and very empowering if you can apply this to your life.
You do not need to live life angry, resentful or unhappy.
Learn to control your peptides and receptors and you’ll soon experience a different way of thinking and feeling!

Are You Addicted to Stress? Learn Why Here

Are You Addicted to Stress?
If so, you are not alone! Millions of people are addicted to stress, worry, jealousy, anger and a myriad of other emotions or emotive responses.
Why? Because of the peptidal battle taking place within you every moment of your life. If you weren’t paying attention in high school biology, you might have missed the discussion about peptides and receptor cells. Let me refresh your memory…br>

The Battle of the Peptides

Each tiny cell in your body (& there are billions) has hundreds of receptors on the surface of its external membrane. Each receptor is designed to accept a particular peptide like a lock and a key.
The peptides seek out and attach themselves to these receptors, so they can supply the cell with a particular emotion, or required nutrient or an incentive to take some sort of action, etc.
What’s interesting is that if a person has a predisposition to experiencing his or her physical reality through a particular emotional filter (by predisposition I mean habitual) they will tend to have more receptors on their cells for that emotion compared to other emotions.

**** Even more intriguing is if the cells are continually being fed the same peptide again and again and again…. THEN… When the cell splits, there will be even more of those types of receptors on both of the new cells. ****

AYURVEDA Provides The Perfect New Year’s Resolutions

Ten Ayurvedic Health Tips to Implement for the New Year

It’s the new year and we habitually set New Year’s resolutions.  Quite often, at least one resolution involves our health.  Ayurveda teaches us to live in harmony with our environment and thus have healthier lives.  The following are ten simple Ayurvedic health tips to implement for a more fulfilling new year.

1. Use a tongue cleaner.  Did you know that each part of the tongue is connected to a bodily organ? Thus utilizing a tongue cleaner removes the toxins which have accumulated overnight and stimulates the organs in the morning, so that they function more optimally. Upon rising, brush your teeth and scrape your tongue,  before ingesting anything. Astainless steel tongue scraper is good for all three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.  Kapha people can also use copper tongue cleaners.

2. Gargle with sesame oil. To strengthen the teeth and gums, to help with TMJ, and deter from the appearance of wrinkles, swish some sesame oil around in your mouth for 5-10 minutes. Do so after you brush your teeth and scrape your tongue. After swishing the oil around, you can spit it out.  Massaging your gums afterwards will be even more beneficial

3. Add turmeric to your diet. Turmeric is one of the most healing spices in your pantry. It’s anti-bacterial, a blood purifier, as well as a great digestive, among many other qualities.  You can start the day (after brushing your teeth and scraping your tongue) by having a glass of warm water with ½ – 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder.  You can utilize turmeric when cooking your vegetables or lentils.  Turmeric is also available in tablet and tincture form.

4. Oil massage.  Are you plagued by constant dryness? Rather than looking for the best moisturizer on the market, address the cause internally.   The dryness is inside the body, and that is where it needs to be alleviated.   Doing an oil massage, or abhyanga, and then taking a warm shower allows the oil to penetrate into the skin and help relieve the dryness inside.  For oil massage, those with a Vata imbalance can use sesame oil, those with a Pitta imbalance can use sunflower oil orcoconut oil, and people with a Kapha imbalance may use sesame oil or sunflower oil.  Make sure you use a bath mat, as the tub and shower get slippery with the oil.  An injury could really aggravate the doshas!   Continue reading

Hot Particles From Fukushima Pose Global Health Crisis

Photoelectron Induction in Uranium Particles
(aka Hot Particles)

by Chris Busby, PhD

Enhancement of absorbed dose from natural background gamma radiation due to photoelectron induction in uranium particles.

The Background:

The health effect of depleted uranium exposure is an area of scientific and political controversy. Despite a great deal of evidence that uranium particles from weapons show anomalous genotoxicity there has been no persuasive explanation of the biological mechanisms involved (ECRR2010). The issue had been considered by a committee set up by the Royal Society (RS) in 2000; the Chair of this committee was Prof. Brian Spratt. The outcome of its deliberations was published in 2001 (Royal Society 2001). It was concluded that it was impossible for the exposures to Depleted Uranium (DU) weapons to be the cause of any illness since the absorbed doses were too low. These conclusions were not accepted by all (e.g Busby 2000, 2003, Bertell 2006). The Ministry of Defence set up an independent board to oversee measurements of uranium in Gulf War veterans and to discuss the science: the Depleted Uranium Oversight Board (DUOB). Around the same time, evidence that internal radiation exposures (including DU) might be significantly more hazardous than current risk models predicted led the then Environment Minister, Michael Meacher, to set up the Committee Examining Radiation Risks from Internal Emitters, (CERRIE) chaired by Prof Dudley Goodhead. Goodhead had been the chief advisor to the RS on radiological issues of DU. Both the CERRIE and DUOB resulted in failures to agree among committee members and separate oppositional reports (www.duob.org; CERRIE 2004a , CERRIE 2004b).

********************************************************************************

So begins the explanation, and rebuttal, by Dr. Chris Busby (with some comments from Pattison et al – 2009 and the Royal Society), concerning the “enhancement of absorbed dose from natural background gamma radiation due to photoelectron induction in uranium particles”.  The rest of this paper can be read at the following link:

For those who understand the awesome implications of this work it is evident that all the depleted uranium scattered around the world has left us with an unprecedented and massive planetary challenge.   It also speaks to all the other background radiation and radioactive particles which find there way into the human body from whatever sources. Truly, this timely revelation represents a slow motion global health and medical crisis that is occurring 24/7 completely under the radar.    Continue reading

CANCER: A Case of Unresolved Grief …

and Deep Hurt and Longstanding Resentment

Of all the world’s serious maladies and diseases none is so dreaded as cancer.

There is a very good reason for this. Every illness under the sun finds the true roots of its etiology in the human psyche, the human emotions, the prevailing mental state of the individual.

In the case of cancer we see a very definite mental condition and emotional profile which can predispose the person to manifesting various forms of tumors, cysts, fibroids, sarcomas, carcinomas, as well as various malignancies of unknown origin.
Clearly the emotional and mental components of the disease process known as cancer loom large in determining the direction of its evolution. VERY large!

Why, and how, is this the case?

It has often been identified by medical intuitives over the last many decades that those who suffer from cancer present a very similar risk profile.
This risk profile not only includes phenotype and genotype, diet and pharmaceutical regimen, exercise routine and sleep pattern, lifestyle and workstyle, marital status and healthy relationships, but many other key indicators as well.

Perhaps one of the most important of these other determinants include one’s emotional comportment, and especially the degree of contentment that one allows him or herself to experience on a regular basis. Continue reading

Angelina Jolie’s fear-based double masctectomy decision

And the terrible message it sends to the women of the world!

Should mastectomies ever be used as preventive treatment for breast cancer …
when cancer hasn’t even been medically (or scientifically) diagnosed?

Angelina Jolie ought to keep her personal medical decisions to herself, especially about breast health.
So should Miss America contestants who also publicize similar highly unenlightened medical choices.

Having a double mastectomy in order to prevent a possible case of breast cancer, particularly when such decisions are based on easily misunderstood science that is jaded in the interest of surgical oncology just isn’t right.

Really, can it get any worse than women cutting off their breasts to avoid cancer they don’t even have?!
On the recommendation of mostly male surgical oncologists who have a great financial interest in the matter?!

Good God in Heaven, what has this place (read Planet Earth) come to?
Does the man cut off his scrotum because his doctor tells him he has the gene for testicular cancer?

How about this: Does the parent cut off the child’s head because the neurosurgeon determined that the child has a genetic predisposition for brain cancer?! Or do we just suck the little guy or gal’s brain out of his head with a surgical suction device?

Where does it end?

Where did it begin?

Where are we going with this tragically flawed logic and horribly skewed medical decision process?

How did we ever get here in the first place? To this place of preventive surgery for an ailment, disease, or illness that we don’t even have yet. Continue reading

WHO Lies Refuted: Physicians’ Group Predicts 100,000+ Fukushima Cancer Incidences/Deaths

By Richard Wilcox, PhD
3-14-13

“All governments lie, but disaster lies in wait for countries whose officials smoke the same hashish they give out.” – I. F. Stone

In this new age of instant information, navigating the pitfalls of overload (too much); uncertainty (lack of); misinformation (poor quality); disinformation (intentional distortion, lies); is key in determining the scope of the Fukushima nuclear disaster and assessing immediate and long-term impacts on the international and Japanese public health. Fortunately we have one of the first attempts from researchers to set the record straight and calculate the death toll from the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The report comes from the courageous men and women of International Physicians for Preventing Nuclear War (IPPNW) who expose the Big Lie being perpetrated by the World Health Organization (WHO) that few ill health effects will occur.

Consider that it is standard operating procedure for governments and industry to obfuscate, cover-up and lie about a nuclear disaster as soon as it occurs. The chaos that unfolds during a nuclear disaster such as Fukushima is used in a carefully orchestrated Big Lie process whereby damage control and perception management allow the perpetrators of the Big Crime – Tokyo Electric Power Company, the Japanese government and the international nuclear apologists and nuclear industry – to eventually get off scot free (1).

Even though the Japanese government was fully aware that three reactors had melted down and another one severely damaged, and that people should have been evacuated in a much more bold and expedient manner, the phrase that will live in infamy, “there is no immediate danger,” was repeated during the worst days of the nuclear crisis by the government. In Orwellian fashion they might as well have announced over loudspeakers across the entire country that “The Moon Is Made Of Green Cheese, The Moon Is Made Of Green Cheese,” in order to prove that whatever the government says is true and no one should question it.

The extent and quantity of radiation released from the accident has intentionally been suppressed, and unless the public can gain access to the highest echelons of governmental secrets, we will never know the full truth of how much radiation was released, where it was deposited and whose health was or will be affected.

The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster And The Radioactive Effects On Human Health

by Richard Wilcox

Even one atom of uranium undergoing alpha decay has the potential for creating a fatal cancer. – Paul Zimmerman, A Primer in the Art of Deception
(1; p. 53)

When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous, and its speaker a raving lunatic. - Dresden James (2)

It ain’t what we don’t know that causes all the trouble, it’s what we do know that ain’t so. – a saying from Jim in Texas (Ibid.)

The first rule of holes: when you’re in one, stop digging. – Molly Ivins (3)

The Trouble We Are In

Large-scale nuclear disasters like Chernobyl or Fukushima are comparable with other deadly man-made phenomena. The number of annual global automobile deaths is 1.3 million (4). Terrible though it is, an automobile accident kills just once; radiation breaks down the Earth’s DNA of life. GMOs (genetically modified organisms) threaten to replace that fabric of life with an artificial and diseased template (5). Secret geoengineering programs of atmospheric aerosol spraying (chemtrails) may be causing irreparable harm to the very life cycles of the Earth (6). Deforestation and habitat loss destroy and displace the Earth’s biological and cultural diversity.   Continue reading
