A CHALLENGE TO AWARENESS AND ACTION

I have read THE GIFT in YOU by Dr. Caroline Leaf and I believe it is a book that would help so many children and adults with so called “learning disabilities”.

I am certain most of us have heard the scripture: “…my people perish for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Well, it is this scripture that has prompted me to write a blog to encourage you to increase your awareness of what you are exposing your mind and bodies to; and to encourage you to follow the sage advice of Proverbs: “get knowledge and wisdom” when it comes to life and lifestyle decisions!

What is happening in our schools? “Waiting for Superman” is a film that gave me renewed vigor to continue with my work in education that I have been doing for 25 years in South Africa and now for nearly three in the USA. God has given a desire to help teach children and teachers the natural art of deep thinking through creating “Switch On Your Brain” classrooms. It’s frightening to note that the average American child spends less than 10% of a class lesson engaged in deep thinking! In fact, the following statement was made in Newsweek July 18, 2010: “For the first time, research shows that American creativity is declining. What went wrong- and how can we fix it?” This is a very informative article talking about the decline in education in America and the effect of the creative quotient (CQ) dropping instead of rising by 10 points each generation.

What is happening to our food? “Food Inc.”, “Supersize Me” and “Food Matters” are three films that will forever open your eyes to the perversions that are happening when it comes to what is being put into people’s mouths. It never fails to horrify me when I see what children are being fed for “school lunches” and how blithely people in general reach for that next take out and processed food item. Fluoride can ravage your thyroid and pineal glands, and it can lead to cancer as well. But while fluoridated drinking water is a major culprit, so are these very common foods. In fact, there is one everyday food that contains a level that’s up to 180 times greater than what’s recommended for your drinking water! (READ MORE HERE…)

What is happening to our medical system? “Cut Poison Burn” is a controversial, eye opening, and heartbreaking documentary that puts the business of cancer treatment under the microscope. I encourage you to follow the frustrating journeys of critically ill cancer patients as they try to navigate the confusing and dangerous maze of treatment and encounter formidable obstacles in the “cancer industrial complex.” A compelling critique of the influence of medical monopolies, the power of pharmaceutical companies and government agencies, Cut Poison Burn is essential viewing for anyone and everyone touched by cancer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCmr2OGmMDQ&feature=youtu.be

If I carry on with this blog you may get depressed …but that is not my goal. My goal is to challenge each and everyone of us to get the knowledge to keep ourselves healthy in our minds and bodies so we can fulfill our divine purpose, which is, after all, what Jesus wanted: “ I wanted you healed spirit, soul and body…” (1 Thessalonians 5:23).
