Discover your gifts and be rewarded for them

Everybody has areas they are gifted in but many people don't even know what there greatest gifts are though. Some have discovered their greatest gifts and have become very effective in them and have been rewarded for them while others haven't. Many have overlooked their gifts and since they have not celebrated them, they have gone unrewarded for them.

Sometimes it can be hard for some to discover their greatest gifts because we generally look to others for validation.  When we don't get it, we can sometimes overlook our area of gifting. In the past, I've met people with amazing gifts that when I told them how amazing they were you could tell that they just didn't believe it. They just couldn't see it. It's possible to be blind to your own gifts and to underestimate yourself.  Since we tend to be our own worst critics. We can pick ourselves apart and even devalue ourselves.  We might do something amazingly well, but we might overlook this because it comes natural for us and is easy for us to do it. What you do with ease, others may have to struggle to do it. Others may look at us and wish they had what we have, yet we are blind to our own greatness. 

When you are amazingly gifted in something, there seems to be three reasons why many people won't tell you. 1. Because they don't value your gift because it does not benefit them. (your gift will not be celebrated everywhere) 2. Because they think you already know how good you are at your gift. 3. Because they are jealous and they wish they had your gift. 

You have to learn to discover your own unique gifts. Discover what it is that sets you apart. No one can do it exactly like you can do it. It's your unique gifts  that set you apart and when in the right environment, these gifts make you valuable to others who need what you have. You must go where you are celebrated, not just tolerated. 

Once you discover your gifts, you have to learn to believe in yourself and your gifts. It doesn't matter what others say or think about you or your gifts. It only matters what you think and say about you. You can't expect others to believe in you if you don't believe in you. When you start to really celebrate yourself and your unique gifting, then others will begin to celebrate you too.  Something that goes uncelebrated, goes unrewarded. When you realize the true value of what you have and begin to celebrate it, you will begin to be rewarded for it.

Cannabis helped me recover from stroke

I believe very much in Cannabis as medicine. It helped me regain my cognition after suffering a small stroke a little over two years ago which left me with memory, language, and overall cognition problems. Cannabis has been proven to stimulate neurogenesis in rats in the areas of the brain responsible for memory. It also has a positive effect on brain plasticity and is a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant if used in small doses.

I first used cannabis for a one month cycle about two years ago. My depression left, I began to engage in life again. Creativity started coming back. My cognition was better while using it and so much improved after I stopped. It truly is a miracle plant in so many ways. It can bring healing to so many if respected, not abused and used in proper dose and for the right reasons. For medicinal use, I don't recommend smoking it. It's healthier to eat it like in tincture form or in edibles made with cannabis butter. 

You can also juice the fan leaves and buds like you would wheat grass. If you juice it, since it's not heated, there is no high so you can take a much larger dose by drinking the juice. Even though it's not psychoactive when in it's raw form, you can get up to 600 percent more of the beneficial cannabinoids contained that are anti-inflammatory and immune regulating. So this plant has dual uses. When dried and heated it becomes psychoactive. When raw and juiced it is also medicinal helping with diseases that create inflammation and other auto-immune diseases. It truly is a miracle plant and so easy to grow.

It's ridiculous that it's still 100 percent illegal under federal law. It never should have been made illegal. God's gift of medicinal herbs should be available to all, free of charge. It's one of God's amazing blessings to man along with all other healing edible fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and medicinal herbs. I'm grateful for cannabis and all plants....... 

"Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you" Genesis 1:29

The pic at the top is a pic of a plant I grew. Please people, if you believe in Cannabis as medicine, help spread by sharing this blog post with your Facebook friends, etc. 

I want to help get the word out to all who could benefit from this wonderful plant so please share. 

Thanks so much and God bless you - Rob

The prescription drug pipeline that is killing Americans and so many around the world

There is a pipeline of prescription drugs being piped to the people. And the people's overall well-being is not the top priority of those pushing drugs.  The motivation behind it all is money.  In a capitalist system, the desire for profit drives new innovation, growth and change. This is good and bad. Bad to some degree when it comes to medicine though.The problem comes into play when it's about peoples health.  

Let me tell you a story....

I had an opportunity to work in car sales years ago. Before you judge me, hear me out lol.  I took the job but only worked there 3 months. I have done sales very successfully for many years so I thought I would do well here. My boss told me "don't worry about the numbers, test drive with the customer, bring them in the office and I will take over."  My job was to land the customer on a car and then my boss would close the deal. Half the time I didn't know what they were doing, they didn't share. I did happen to see things that I wasn't proud of and that went against everything that I stand for. I started to realize that I was the nice shiny bait, pulling in the customer then my boss would go for the kill so to speak.  I remember things happening like a young guy buying his first new jeep. After he agreed to buy, they sent him to finance where they sold him a "lojack" system to track his jeep if it was stolen.  They tacked on another 1500 -1700 for this.  Now since the car is new, it's fully insured so if it were to get stolen, the insurance company would pay it off anyway.  It's not like he was buying a Lamborghini or other high end car, did he really need a lojack?  The answer is no, he didn't. This bothered me as it seemed to lack morality in business.  I had other instances where they fudged the numbers so they appeared on the computer screen that the dealership was only making a very small profit when they actually were lying to the customer. They would look the customer in the eye and show them the computer screen and say "we are only making 100 dollars on the deal", just to close the sale. Later they would change the numbers to reflect the true profit and would show me and laugh at the customer.  I was bothered by the fact that they cared nothing about being honest. Because we were on the same team and I was getting the commission, I felt responsible for their immoral actions.  I couldn't believe in the people who I was working with and could no longer stand to be a part of a organization that didn't have the best interest of the customer in mind. I ended up leaving.  

Now I said all that to make this point.  I don't believe that their is some conspiracy where all docs are out to make money at the expense of unsuspecting people and with no regard for their true wellbeing.  There are probably some doctors that don't care but most do I believe and probably went into medicine to make a positive difference in the lives of others.  

The problem is that, just like me when I was working in car sales, they are in a system that is broken to some extent.  It's money driven and this is causing a conflict as money is the motivation of big pharma and their influence on medicine has created a system where they don't really promote health or healing as much as "treating disease" with toxic drugs.  They make a lot more on treating disease than they do on curing it."  They promote "early detection" instead of "prevention". They could funnel money towards education in "prevention" but there is no money to be made here. So doctors have become the extending arm of Big Pharma. Big pharma funds the studies, manipulates the results to get their drugs approved and influences doctors from the very start of medical school.  Many doctors now dish out drugs with little regard to the possible harm that could come upon those taking the drugs. They are taught to believe in these drugs and that this is the way you practice medicine.  Doctors take a oath to "first, do no harm"  yet they are harming people with toxic drugs.  Something has to change and it is changing. I believe that many years from now, we will all look back and realize how barbaric medicine was at this time in history. That doctors were poisoning people with prescription drugs. The answer to health is not in the "new wonder drug." 

The answer to health is and has always been found in food and lifestyle.

Hippocrates (the founder of modern medicine) said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”  You can't patent food and lifestyle though so you can't make billions off of just telling people to eat their fruits and greens, get some sunlight and move your body regularly.
