Battles against Media’s idea of “The Perfect Woman

Battles against Media’s idea of “The Perfect Woman”

by: Dorothy Lafrinere

Lately I have been studying the media, reading articles, watching news, and looking for anything that I can find to make me feel that there is still hope for our world. If you have read any of my past articles, then you will already know where my concerns lie.
For those of you that are just reading me for the first time, my concerns are strong regarding women of today and their search for the true identity of themselves.
Women today have fierce competition. I have spoken to many men also and they have strongly let me know that they would not trade their gender for any amount of money. They actually feel sorry for the women of today...

Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging In Medical Therapy

by: Brenda Witt

Digital technology now makes Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging available to all. There now is a completely safe test that can aid in diagnosis, treatment and monitoring with absolutely no risk or radiation exposure.
DITI, or digital infrared thermal imaging, is a noninvasive diagnostic test that allows a health practitioner to see and measure changes in skin surface temperature. An infrared scanning camera translates infrared radiation emitted from the skin surface and records them on a color monitor. This visual image graphically maps the body temperature and is referred to as a thermogram. The spectrum of colors indicates an increase or decrease in the amount of infrared radiation being emitted from the body surface...

Diamond Setting – What You Need To Know

Diamond Setting – What You Need To Know

by: Brock Hammill

When it comes to placing your new diamond in a setting there are a couple of things to take into consideration.
Number of Prongs – How many prongs you get is up to you. The more prongs, the more secure the diamond will be. At the same time I don’t feel that having only four prongs makes your diamond more likely to fall out. It is a matter of taste.
Material of Prongs – What the prongs are made of does make a big difference. Your choices are usually gold or platinum. Platinum is much stronger and heavier than gold. Gold prongs can get bent and over time wear down. Platinum prongs will stay as new as the day you bought it and are less likely to bend.
Ring material – This is a matter of taste and budget...

Gay Wedding Ring: Symbol of Love and Equality

Gay Wedding Ring: Symbol of Love and Equality

by: Sam Serio

A wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion for many people, although for an increasing number of persons, it has become a several-in-a-lifetime event. In any case, it is still a very special ceremony that binds not only a man and a woman together; today, gay male couples and gay women couples also observe the ceremony to affirm their lifelong commitment to each other. In such ceremonies, the gay wedding ring takes center stage.
Same-sex marriage is still illegal in the majority of U.S. states and in countries all over the world, so what gay couples opt for is to participate in a “commitment ceremony,” where the exchange of gay wedding rings also takes place...

Making the Faith/Hope Connection

Making the Faith/Hope Connection

by: Cory L. Kemp

You have hope in your life, expectations, desires, a feeling of confidence in what you intend for your life. You know where you want your hope to lead you. But what is the path that you will need to create to continue your journey? What is the connection from hope to faith, and faithful living?
Going back to Hebrews 11 we discover some clues. After gathering the evidence of Abel, Abraham and Sarah’s faith, we are reminded that they died before the promises made to them were actually manifested, “But having seen it and greeted it from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth,” they did understand and name their legacy to us. “For people who speak thus make it clear that they are seeking a homeland...

Female Self Pleasuring Tips For The Adventurous Wo

Female Self Pleasuring Tips For The Adventurous Woman

by: E.J. Davis

Unlike men, whose sex organs are available for self pleasure by stroking and stimulating any time of the day, women have to contrive to entice their clitoris out of hiding and available for pleasuring. One of the most common female self pleasuring tips is the use of sex toys and gadgets.
Luckily for us, female self pleasure toys can be found in our very own kitchen. Sure, jokes have been made about this, but it’s true. The usual suspects here are any penis-like vegetables and fruits, like carrots, cucumbers or zucchinis. Bananas are too soft to do the trick...

Spiritual Awakening

Spiritual Awakening

by: Sam Stevens

As we proceed further into the 21st century there is even more of a feeling that humanity as a whole is hearing “a calling”. Most of the clients in the realm that talk about this describe it as an “awakening” or experiencing an “enlightenment” or a “need for transformation.”
For some this process, a spiritual awakening is a gentle process develops as a consequence of many years of seeking, and researching practices having to do with self-development. This is the type of seeker who wants the spiritual awakening and seeks out the guidance of a teacher or to help them prepare themselves emotionally and physically for their spiritual awakening.
However, I have noticed that no matter how trained an individual nobody is ever ready for what Eastern religions ca...

Freezer Spells

Freezer Spells

by: Sam Stevens

For the most part, I think that spells can be a valuable way to “act” out your anger, resentment, bitterness or jealousy. The very act of doing a spell can make a person who feels powerless or victimized, feel at least briefly, for at time that they are somehow in control of the situation again. I have found the following “freezer” spells to be quite satisfying to do, if you find yourself somehow dumped, oppressed or just plain wishing for some kind of psychological torture to stop. I am not completely sure if these spells or not, but when someone does me wrong, the first thing that pops into mind is the frosty insides of my refrigerator.
I love these spells because they fall under the category of corny spells, trailer trash wiccanary and because they origina...

Easy and Inexpensive Hostess Gifts

Easy and Inexpensive Hostess Gifts

by: Jan Kovarik

In days gone by,it was considered impolite to go to someone’s house for dinner or a party and not take a small gift for the hostess (or the host!). The gift didn’t have to be anything “special” or very expensive, just something that said “Thank you” to your hostess.
It can be very easy, and not at all expensive, to renew that happy custom. And speaking from personal experience, it is so much fun to watch her face when you hand her a little gift!
Keep Gift Items on Hand
It is relatively simple to keep a few things on hand that make nice little gifts. You don’t need to spend a fortune either—and here’s how you do it:
Buy trial-sized items! You can find hand lotions, small bottles of spray perfume, bars of moisturizing soap, etc...

Folic Acid – An Overview

Folic Acid – An Overview

by: Whitney Lasseter

Folic Acid, also know as Vitamin B9, assists in preventing certain birth defects of the spinal cord and brain known as neural tube defects (NTDs). Without a sufficient amount of Folic Acid the cells that form the baby’s brain and spine become deficient resulting in spina bifida (open spine) or anencephaly (undeveloped brain). There are over 4,000 births defects annually as a direct result of insufficient Folic Acid in the Mother’s body. Folic Acid should be taken prior to conception since these births defects begin in the first month of pregnancy. Folic Acid also helps prevent other birth defects such as cleft palate, low birth weight and helps in the production of additional red blood cells needed to support the growth of the fetus...

by: Zhana Dragicevich

There is a moment in everyone’s life, when you notice for the first time, (it may be for some around your 35th birthday), wrinkles and sagginess on your face. These may appear as a result of stress-filled days, good and bad personal experiences, genetics and a host of other factors influencing your life.
At first, looking from different angles in the mirror you think, perhaps you can do something about it. Well, anti-aging creams definitely improve the texture of the skin through quality moisturizing and fight against damaging UV rays together with regular beautician visits...

Tips for Women as They Adjust to Married Life

Tips for Women as They Adjust to Married Life

by: Rachel Greenberg

There are basically two types of men out there. Men who like to watch sports, and men who don’t. I consider myself lucky to have met and married a man who falls into the latter category. But that doesn’t mean that our lives together are always pure wedded bliss. It takes a lot of work, especially if you have been out in the single world for a long time.
I’m sure you single ladies out there know what I am talking about. It’s tough to actually have to live with someone when you previously had the place to yourself. And what about the name change, the finances, and all the other administrative stuff that makes marriage so unsexy?? Let’s explore what you can do to handle the transition to married life with ease.

A Tiny Spot

A Tiny Spot

by: Barbara Carr Phillips

A tiny spot is no big deal. Unless you’re a breast cancer survivor waiting for screen results.
My husband and I moved to another state with our children after my lumpectomy and chemotherapy/radiation treatments. He accepted a job transfer, and we felt it was a fresh start for all of us.
After we settled in, I scheduled my first follow-up exam.
When I met my new oncologist, I read off my list of concerns. I wrote them in my journal so I wouldn’t forget.
“Don’t take this personally,” I say, “but I don’t like going to the doctor’s office.”
The doctor smiles and nods.
“And I won’t schedule appointments with a new radiologist or a new surgeon for follow-ups. I just want you to take care of everything.”
He smiles again and says, “...

Finding Your Feng Shui Power Spots for Love and Ro

Finding Your Feng Shui Power Spots for Love and Romance

by: Stephanie Roberts

The first step in using feng shui to attract a partner or improve your love life is to find the relationship power spots in your home. Once you have located these areas, feng shui cures and enhancements can activate these areas and increase your love luck.
The feng shui “ba gua” is an energy map that divides any space into eight (“ba”) sections (“guas”), each of which affects a specific aspect of life. Love and marriage are governed by “Kun” gua. Your relationship power spots are the Kun guas of your home, bedroom, and other main rooms.
In traditional Chinese feng shui, Kun gua is the southwest (SW) sector of the home. Secondary Kun guas are the SW sector of each room within the home...

Beauty Today: All Smoke and Mirrors?

Beauty Today: All Smoke and Mirrors?

by: Danna Schneider

Did you ever notice that the bar is continually being raised on exactly what physical characteristics define beauty? As I sit in front of the TV, I am bombarded by beauties with pouty lips, perfect bone structure, flawless skin, more “voluptuous” upper regions, size 2 waists, and hair that resembles spun silk. Take these same beauties and plop them back in time 20-30 years, when the advent of modern cosmetic technology had not even begun to reach its full potential. Do you think they would have had those same attributes you find yourself longing for when faced with these images? My guess is probably not, or at least not to the same extent.
True, genetics play a role in physical beauty, but with the likes of total “extreme” makeover r...
