Hello friends! Been awhile. I’ve just completed my first two classes. I am now living my dream and working on finishing my degree. Woohooo. So excited.
I LOVE this program. Check out http://www.fullsail.edu
I know it’s been awhile, but I am getting back into the grove. Have learned some great tips and I will share those with you soon.
Until next time…
I was introduced to self-help books early in life. I thank the person who did do so, for it opened up my eyes and brain. I found out early that I was good in sales. So that was my chosen profession. Little did I know it would be so detrimental to my health. I end up in a high pressure sales position. But, that is the price you pay working for Corporate America making close to $50,000 a year.
I love self-help books, motivational books and emails. It makes me feel good, makes me a little more self-confident and it usually puts a smile on my face.
Every-so-often, we need some encouragement and motivation to get us through a tough day. The new company, Be Motivated Today motivates and encourages you through PEP-Talks, videos and more.
Here’s a taste:
You are incredible!
You are incredible! You’re smart, resourceful and capable. You add value to your company and those around you. You love to smile and you like helping people. You have awesome potential. You have goals that you reach. You make a positive difference in the lives of others. You know you’re not perfect, but you try. You face challenges and you overcome them. You work hard. You love to win and today you’ll show the world that you are a Winner.
And you get these weekly, sometimes monthly, but they make my day. However, after finding this website, I discovered that there was a way to make money with them and I liked what I saw.
A way to generate a passive income with no risk and very little work…. Yeah, right I thought and rather skeptically I tried it and the results took me by surprise. They were telling the truth. When I saw the system actually working, I knew I’d found something special.
I was also reassured when I discovered they’re a registered, South African company with a two-year history of helping people create passive in.come.
A simple system, no selling or recruiting.
Fully Automated. The highest pay-out in the world.
I have had enormous fun building my passive income with this system. I work on it when I want, night or day. It’s not a get rich scheme by no means, but if you keep at it, it will build you a passive income.
In these days and times, any extra money helps. I know for me it helps with these darn high electric bills.
So, if you’re interested in having a new recurring income without recurring work, visit my website at

That is all for now, I have to go work on my motivation!
Well, I found out again, that I am not invincible! I committed to blogging at least once a week and I have let myself down. But, I do have an excuse.
First, I had a Lupus flare. Still not sure what defines as a Lupus “flare”. That is still out to debate. I just know what happens to me. Swollen feet and ankles with slight pain. Pain and stiffness in all my joints. More than usual. I wake up daily with the stiffness. Thank You Mr. RA! When you are in pain it cause depression. More so in some than others. When I get this way, I don’t want to do much of anything, but sleep. Lupies need lots of sleep. One of the symptoms of Lupus is chronic fatigue. Most of my friends and family understand this, but it sure does interfere with my blogging and networking.
So today is a New Day and a good day for a New Beginning. Weekly blogging starts today. Yeah! I do have some good stuff to post. I believe that others deserve my views and reviews. Especially when it comes with dealing with Lupus. I am a survivor. I could have died in 2003. I had gangrene with my first flare. When Lupus raised its ugly head. I was diagnosed with Lupus, Reynaud’s Disease, Vasculitis, and RA. Well that’s enough, isn’t it. :) It took the doctors 5 days to diagnose me. I thank God everyday for the University of Virginia Medical Hospital. I checked in with gangrene already in progress. It affected my two pointer fingers and the first and fourth digits on my left foot. Talking about Pain. Like no other I’ve ever experienced before. Nothing can describe it other than a “burning” feeling. They told me that the toes and fingers would just “Fall Off”. Can you imagine? Having to sit and watch your fingers and toes just rot away? The doctors told me that they could just cut them off, but that would not get rid of ALL the pain. Have you ever heard of phantom pain? It’s so real. It’s been 8 years now and I still have them. I still even try to pick up something with the assist of the pointer finger and it just don’t work like it use to.
Well that is just a brief look inside of my disease and what I have gone through. My goal is to help others who have Lupus or other diseases with my experiences and knowledge.
Now, back to the Yoga! I haven’t been doing my exercises like I should these last couple of weeks. But today is the beginning of a New week. My overall Goal, in this area, is to do my Yoga at least 2x a week. It’s in writing; It’s posted on my bulletin board. Soon to be copied and placed around the house. Along with my affirmations of the day!
I hope you will join me in setting your Goals for this area of your life. It’s imperative to be successful. I have an E-book, that is FREE, that I can send you. It’s about setting goals. Goals by Brian Tracey is a must read for every highschool and college student beginning their life in this crazy world we live in. Moreover, it’s something EVERYONE should have and read. So add your name and email address and I will gladly share this free information with you. For someone cared enough to let me have it for free. I am all about sharing the love.
Until the next post-Work on setting Your Goals for 2011 and get ready to do Yoga with me to exercise this disabled body without hurting those sore joints.
What is yoga?
Yoga is extensively known as a form of exercise that stretches and strengthens the
body through various poses known as ASANAS. For other people yoga is the
realization of inner self satisfaction. For other it is a religion that the believe and
All of this statement makes it hard to really make a full realization of what yoga is.
So what is yoga?
Yoga goes far beyond just mere exercises full of awkward routines. Yoga is the union
of mind, spirit and body. Yoga comes from the Hindu philosophy used to attain
spiritual insight and harmony.
What is yoga? Yoga generally refers to the common use of a system of exercises that
is practiced as part of this discipline.
The word is derived from the Sanskrit “yeung”, which means to join. A yoke as used
on oxen is closely related, but also the same root gives us “join”, “junction”, “junta”,
“adjust”, “joust”, and “juxapose” to name a few.
There are many institutions of yoga all of which have their own unique practices and
beliefs. But in this article we have listed down the five most common yoga practices.
However, schools and paths have been established with many different variations
that aren’t listed here.
HATHA: this is the most popular variety of yoga and one that has been commonly
taught for years. So what is yoga for them? For them it is perfecting the mind by
way of perfecting the body.
With this technique many asanas or postures, breathing techniques and meditations
ASHTANGA: this yoga is another popular type they are much faster than the other
schools. What is yoga for ashtanga’s?
For them yoga can be considered as a type of aerobic yoga for they instill quick and
smooth transitions between poses.
KUNDALINI: This school is focused on awakening and focusing what is known as
kundalini energy. Kundalini energy is most easily compared to life energy that lies
dormant in our bodies. It is commonly represented by a coiled snake.
MANTRA: this type of yoga is focused on calming the mind and body through the
usage of words and sounds. The well known ‘om’ chant is commonly heard in this
TANTRA: This type of school is well known by way of its focus on sexual spirituality.
They also focus on kundalini energy, although their intent for awakening it is much
different from the Kundalini practice.
Yoga is a very diverse practice, no matter which school you choose. People young
and old can gain many benefits from regular yoga practices, and asanas can be
adjusted to fit physical limitations and other complications.
If you want a break from treadmills, weight rooms, or the pool, take a look at yoga.
Not only are you striving towards physical well being, you are striving towards
spiritual well being as well.
Traditionally, yoga consists of eight fundamental paths: Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga,
Jnana Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Purna Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Maha Yoga and Ashtanga or Raja
Yoga. In the western world, the term yoga often refers to Hatha yoga and its
postures, movements, and breathing techniques.
The ultimate goal of yoga is the attainment of liberation from worldly suffering and
the cycle of birth and death. Yoga entails mastery over the body, mind, and
emotional self, and transcendence of desire. It is said to lead gradually to knowledge
of the true nature of reality.

Tracing the History of Yoga
The History of Yoga has a lot to do with the present times. The earliest Yoga started some 5000 years ago since human civilization has begun. The scholars have believed that Yoga was originated out of Stone Age Shamanism.
This is because there were some cultural similarities between Mehrgarh which was a Neolithic settlement and the Modern Hinduism. The shamanistic culture of Mergarh was in fact influenced by Hindu ideals, symbols and rituals of the present. The ancient shamanism and early Yoga had so much similarity for the reason both wanted to go beyond the human condition.
Shamanism’s primary goal was to heal the members who were in their community and at the same time act as the religious mediators.
Archaic Yoga also had the same objectives as they were community oriented and they aimed to determine the enormous order through senses and inner vision which then can be applied to our daily lives.
As time went on, Yoga has progressed and has regarded the inmost experience. Yogis then have focused on how to improve the individual enlightenment, recovery and salvation.
Yoga’s evidences were first tracked in the archeological evidence which was found in stone seals exhumed from the Indus valley. Yoga postures were traced and seen fro the figures which were illustrated in the stone seals. the artifacts were placed on History books circa 3000 B.C., which was linked to the great Indus-Sarasvati Civilization which was known to be the largest civilization that exist in the ancient world. The Indus-Sarasvati, being a maritime society, exported goods all over Africa and the Middle East. They build up sewage systems and put up geometrical brick roads and constructed multistory buildings.
The Vedas are known as the oldest scripture in the world which were the ancient texts, was brought by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization. It was a compilation of hymns that commends a high power which included the oldest recorded teachings in Yoga. They have considered this the divine revelation. The intelligence of the Vedas was known as the Pre-classical Yoga or the Vedic. This was described by the ritualistic ceremonies that the Yoga practitioners have been required in order to go beyond the limitations of the mind.
The history of yoga would not have been completed in the classical stage of yoga. After the time and turn of the millennium, yoga and its spread in different forms have come up with the need for standardization. This is important so that the people will be aware with it and it can be applied by them. Due to this, during the second century, C.E., Patanjali has composed and collected seminal text which was the Yoga-Sutra which had defined the Classical Yoga.
At the age of Postclassical Yoga in the enormous history of Yoga, it gave rise to some productive literature which has included the Tantra and the Hatha which is famously known nowadays. These were taught in schools for Yoga and practiced by many. Therefore, post classical Yoga is described to the adaptation of our present state. It is the time when yoga has evolved greatly and introduced to people. It has then been applied in the United States in the 1800’s.
Now in the recent decades, yoga has greatly and swiftly evolved. Swami Sivananda was one of the prominent gurus ever to master yoga. He has served as a doctor and he has generously opened up schools in Europe and America.
Now as we move on with the yoga practices that we have today, it is much helpful and easier to understand if we looked back on the history of yoga.
I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011.
I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.
If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

It took me about an hour or so to print and read the Free PDF from Ana Hoffman. Her 7 Steps to Complete Search Engine Domination. When I had completed it; I noticed that I was smiling. I chuckled. I actually enjoyed my learning experience. Some people are better than others in explaining in a way that one can understand. People are different and learn differently and fortunately, Ana Hoffman has a way with words.
She has a way of conveying her Smile through her words. There are others in the industry that can do the same; They make learning fun and keeps it interesting.
Reminds me of the time a Customer had wrote me an accommadation. I was an Consultant for the “Local” phone company for almost ten years. I had helped a Customer and she wrote in and said ” I could hear the smile in her voice”. I got the accommandation and recognition for her letter and it became part of my perminate file, but they cashed in by using it in their advertising and training. The Point Is-That Ana Hoffman can do that in her writings and post.
I recommend getting her Free Offer if you haven’t already. I think it’s been out for a while now, but I am just now getting to it. So glad that I did. I learned some valuable tidbits that will help me advance my Network Marketing Business. Thanks, Ana!
