Google Adsense on Twitter

To get started with the infographic by Google, you can check this link >> PDF File

At the end of the infographic, there is a forum to join and ask questions in case of any issues arising, etc. You may need to have an Adsense account first and only one account per person. Today, the company treated mum to crabs at a local eatery as she loves crabs, a respite from the recent funeral of dad, which shocked everyone. All of us think that he went too soon to be with the Lord, but then again…

Just the other day, I put flowers at his niche for the second time, shortly after the 40th day of passing on. I don’t know how much time mum has, but we try to make her happy too. It gives me a satisfaction that I am able to contribute financially to the household or rather to mum giving her optional allowance. Though she did not ask for it, I rather give to someone in the family than to splurge on things that I don’t need or pay for too many insurance policies, which in my opinion, are rather a wastage and useless.

The company also ordered a hamper for the household, addressing to the Tan family in remembrance of dad. That’s all I have to say for now and it is 12:35 am! Time for bed.

The Teacher of All Things is in You

The teacher of all things is in you

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things…
John 14:26

THE TEACHER OF ALL THINGS IS IN YOU

If you are asking whom or where you can go to to get the help you need, ask no more. Just turn to God who has already promised you the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom He has sent in Jesus’ name to dwell in you.

The Holy Spirit will teach you all things. Yes, teach you all things! Do you really believe that? Or are you like some who believe that you seek God’s counsel only for spiritual things, but consult “professional” help for all other things in your life?

God does not want you to run to and rely on worldly wisdom. Now, there is nothing wrong with going to a doctor or engaging a financial consultant, but God wants you to come to Him first for counsel and direction. That is why He has sent the Holy Spirit, the Counselor (see John 16:7, NIV), to teach you all things. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and He will guide you into all truth (see John 16:13).

The apostle John said, “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things…the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things” (1 John 2:20, 27).

So the way God teaches you is through the anointing within. It is a continuous anointing. In any particular situation, He is anointing you from within, teaching you by the presence or absence of His peace.

For example, a deal you are considering may sound very reasonable. But if you don’t have the peace in your spirit, don’t sign on the dotted line. Sign only when you have the peace. Be led by His peace and you will find that your heart will not be troubled, neither will it be afraid (see John 14:27).

When you follow that peace which only God can give to you as an inward witness, good things and even miracles will come forth!

Dutble and Perditi Items Arrived

Above are 2 boxes of Dutble items from Netherlands that arrived for half the actual price due to mandatory posting of items on Instagram. Well, Dutble has thousands of followers and counting. I received a genuine leather watch with green strap, and you have an option to purchase more coloured straps to suit the dressing and occassions. Moreover I got 2 granolla bars of cereal and chocolate flavours with long expiry dates, sometime later this year.

I love my Nemi ring that I wore on my pinkie finger which does not seem too ‘loud’ nor insipid. It suits me just right. I also received a sprite of perfume and a pair of earrings from Perditi with many vouchers for more free items where you just pay for shipping by certain dates, which was end of last year.

Since I requested again and emailed Perditi why I did not get my package as promised showing them proofs of 3 payments made successfully from October to December, I got 2 packages instead of three with tracking numbers from Netherlands, albeit a little late. Well, something is better than nothing at all; and as an obligation, I took photos and posted on my Instagram instead. Also got a scrunchie to tie up my growing hair in forrest green velvet, amongst other items. Thanks, Perditi for the awesome gifts.

Non-Religious Marriage Retreats

  • Freud postulated that people instinctively adopted certain drives in their lives, namely the drives for pleasure (Eros), sexuality (Libido) and dying (Thantos). For more information on marriage retreats near me, visit our website.The idea wants to know, the writer suggests, is the fact that another important drive exists within many of us and that’s the drive for relationship and recognition. Quite simply it is essential if we will achieve a subjective feeling of wellness that people relate in some manner to some spouse varieties, even if it’s only as validation in our existence. Indeed different color leaves, we can realize that any interruption to make contact with within the fundamental sense, is very important towards the mental outcome.

    Therefore if we accept the above mentioned, precisely what does this suggest for all of us as Psychotherapists and the skill of psychiatric therapy.

    As Transactional Analysts, we can observe that Eric Berne the founding father of Transactional Analysis, as soon as the 1950s, recognized the significance of relationships and recognition inside our lives. His early influence within this direction most likely originated from his first mentor and analyst – Paul Federn. Paul Federn came from the Object Relations School from the psychoanalytical movement and recognized the significance of the functional ‘other’ within the mental development of the individual.

    In ‘T.A. in Psychotherapy’ (1961) Berne shows that people have certain ‘hunger’ that determine their mental make-up. He shows that their ‘hunger’ and the quest for these to be satisfied are a biological necessity for people.

    The ‘hunger’ Berne spoken of were namely recognition hunger, stimulus hunger and the requirement for time structure in peoples’ lives. He continued to state when these ‘hunger’ weren’t met then your person would experience emotional difficulties inside their mental development. Quite simply, in a single sense, he is at part putting forward the concept that all people instinctively find and want relationships and recognition for emotional security. This is highly significant, and it has not, In my opinion, been emphasized enough. Our prime focus on the behavioral facets of Transactional Analysis within the late 1960s and 1970s by a few practitioners have possibly clouded the idea of Transactional Analysts working inside the ‘relationship.’ It’s important then, for all of us to understand that for Berne the requirement for recognition was, and it is, the central core of T.A. theory and exercise.

    Relationship therapy, or must I repeat the power of the relationship as well as putting that first before using techniques and models, is prevalent in most of the humanistic models from T.A. to Gestalt, Psychosynthesis, and Rogerian psychiatric therapy.

    Like a Transactional Analyst, I place the relationship between myself and also the client as my major consideration, and that doesn’t diminish me thinking also when it comes to ego states, structural analysis, games, and script. I think this model is a beautiful and stylish model for using effective psychiatric therapy. For relationship therapy, three major concepts have to be pointed out; those are the cornerstones for just about any relationship counselor. Richard Erskine talks of the requirement for attunement, inquiry, and participation because of the major prerequisites for just about any counselor working inside a relationship.

    “Inquiry is a continual concentrate a message orientated relationship based psychiatric therapy. It starts with the idea the counselor knows nothing concerning the client’s experience and for that reason must make an effort to comprehend the subjective concept of the client’s conduct and intrapsychic process” (Erskine 1991).

    The inquiry then is extremely about discovering. Somewhat you have to end up being the A Virtual Detective, the Inspector Poirot from the therapy process however in a sincere way, so the client doesn’t feel shamed or ‘missed.’ By using inquiry you’re honoring the client’s experience and historical past, you’re respecting this, and you’re sensitive enough to need to know fully about his tiniest hurts/anxieties and so as to you’ll be repairing in an exceedingly positive manner a few of the ways the customer continues to be missed in early childhood. Within this contact orientated inquiry, you can give a forum for self-validation for that client that is very important on the path to curing. This method, In my opinion, is equally as important, or even more important compared to content from the dialogue.

    Attunement is extremely about “stepping into your skin from the client,” it’s about the counselor finding yourself in touch as fully as you possibly can using the needs and feelings of your partner. As Erskine (1991) states, “The communication of attunement validates the client’s needs and lays the principles for repairing the failure of previous relationships.”

    D. Stern, in the book ‘The Interpersonal Realm of the Infant,’ also talks of affective attunement as being a prerequisite for effective therapy. A good example of attunement he gives could be thus: “A nine-month boy bangs his mind on the soft toy, initially in certain anger but progressively with pleasure, exuberance, and humor. He creates a stable rhythm; Mother falls into this rhythm and states ‘Kaaaaa-Bam, Kaaaaa-Bam, the ‘Bam’ falling around the stroke and also the ‘Kaaaaa’ riding using the preparatory upswing and also the suspenseful holding of his arm aloft before it falls”. For Stern, affective attunement is “the performance of behaviors that express the caliber of a sense of a shared affect condition, without imitating the precise behavioral expression from the inner condition.”

    So, like a counselor working inside the relationship, it’s for me, essential to attune towards the client, to stay in tune using the client, to harmonize using the client. Attunement is a two-way process; it’s mainly about knowing whenever possible from the other person’s sensations, needs, and feelings.

    It’s, just like inquiry, a feeling of really being using the client inside a fully present, contact manner. Attunement does not necessarily mean fusion, or from a confluent position using the client, this means the counselor can also be aware enough and sincere enough to honor the limitations between your client and even the counselor. For a reason that sense facilitating the customer to become, not just conscious of the relationship between themselves and also the counselor, but additionally aware that belongs to them personal limitations between themselves and yet another.

    Participation, just like inquiry and attunement is one of the counselor being fully present as well as in full connection with him. Attendance is extremely necessary for almost any relationship orientated therapy. It’s through participation that people validate and normalize the client’s experience. Quite simply we involve ourselves by using inquiry and attunement in the realm of the customer. It’s through participation using the client that people arrived to comprehend the very nature of the individual that we’re dealing with. It’s by involving ourselves inside the therapeutic procedure that our commitment is apparent for that client. It’s through participation the individual is honored and revered like themselves. It’s through participation the client will feel safe enough to talk about individuals hurts and traumatic moments.

    Inside an asking and attuned therapeutic relationship, the actual foundation for repairing the hurts of previous relationships is shown, the direction to recovery and cure is well in route. Participation, inquiry, and attunement are prerequisites for just about any relationship orientated therapy. I have faith that without these fundamental tenets we won’t be truly respecting, in almost any significant way, the one who has selected us to become their navigator within their journey for emotional health. Finally, it should be noted that when the therapeutic relation ship continues to be forged, it doesn’t imply that inquiry, attunement and participation stop, those are the intrinsic framework from the therapeutic relationship.

    To conclude the therapeutic relationship is essential for just about any real therapy to happen. That doesn’t mean however, the humanistic-existential psychotherapies for example Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Psychosynthesis aren’t essential – they make up the core for that theory and exercise from the therapy domain. Indeed, as stated earlier, Transactional Analysis is really a fine model to follow along with. The concepts of T.A. both theoretically and practically happen to be vital for me personally in assisting me within my act as a counselor today. It’s an excellent model for comprehending the persons intrapsychic process and early traumas. In my opinion it provides the counselor and also the client a typical language and mutuality that is necessary to the therapeutic journey. Want to know more about non religious marriage retreats?

    I believe that Transactional Analysis belongs inside the context of the contractual relationship therapy. This, In my opinion, is precisely what Berne meant whenever a spoken of people requiring to fulfill their biological ‘hunger’ for recognition, stimulus, and structure. Certainly, it may be observed that inside the therapy relationship Inquiry, Attunement and Participation feed and fulfill the client’s mental hunger. I am certain that, had Berne been alive today, he’d accept the next quote from Michael Kalum’s book ‘Between the Counselor and also the Client’ “Now from the existential encounter between counselor and client, the client’s world exists. All the client’s significant past relationships, all of their most fundamental hopes and fears exist and therefore are centered on the counselor. When we can make it easy for these to notice their world visiting rest in us, and when we can exist, fully there, to get their awareness and react to it, the relationship cannot help but become therapeutic.”

Jesus took your place, so you can take His

Jesus took your place, so you can take his

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Matthew 27:46

JESUS TOOK YOUR PLACE SO THAT YOU CAN TAKE HIS

Do you know that it was at the cross that Jesus addressed His Father as “God” for the first time? He had always addressed His Father as “Father.” But at Calvary’s tree, He addressed His Father as “God.”

Jesus lost that Father-Son relationship when He was representing you and carrying your sins at the cross so that today, you can call God “Abba! Father!” (see Romans 8:15) and have a loving father-son relationship with God forever. Jesus was forsaken by God and His world became very dark on that lonely hill so that in your darkest hour, God will always say to you, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5)!

At the time when Jesus needed God most, God turned His back on Him. God had to turn His back on His Son because His eyes are too holy to behold all the sin that was in His Son’s body. And because God turned His back on Jesus, He will never turn His back on you. Instead, you will see God’s face of favor shining on you all the time!

Jesus also took your place of no protection at the cross. For the first time, He gave up divine protection so that you can have it every day of your life! And because He became sin, He took your curse at the cross so that today, as you take His gift of righteousness, you receive only blessings from God.

Jesus received the full brunt of God’s wrath in His body once and for all when He carried your sins. All of God’s anger and condemnation fell on Him, consuming all your sins until God’s wrath was exhausted.

Today, God is not angry with you. The body of Jesus absorbed everything—your sins, curses, and God’s anger and condemnation. So live life expecting to see not the judgment, but the goodness and blessings of God!

FreeDive Academy

We have discussed one of the most popular pastimes frequently here – scuba diving, but there’s an additional dimension to diving – freediving. Free diving is becoming a serious sport where competitors make an effort to achieve great depths on just one breath – without the assistance of underwater breathing apparatus. However, this is not merely an aggressive sport. An easy definition of freediving is “one inch and a breath” – or else … one inch underwater on a breath of air. You need not be a sports athlete to savor freediving because the sport is much more about mindset, technique, and correct weighting than strength. For more information on freediving, visit our website today!

Snorkelers do qualify, but there’s an essential element separating freedivers from snorkelers (and this is hearsay) – apparently, you accomplish a sense of pure ease and relaxation under the water. You reside at the moment, so absorbed than an hour or so under water (clearly not every in one goes if you are free diving!) erases per week of worries…

Wikipedia’s definition of freediving is any of various marine activities that share the practice of breath-holding underwater diving. These include breath-hold spearfishing, free-dive photography, apnea competitions and, to some degree, snorkeling. The activity that garners the most public attention is competitive apnea, a serious sport, in which competitors make an effort to achieve great depths, occasions or distances on just one breath without the direct assistance of a self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba).

The record holder for freediving, a remarkably harmful sport, is Patrick Musimi who dived an amazing 687 ft on one breath. He was under water for near to three minutes.

Patrick’s record is incredible. OK – 3 incredible… but that is how amazing his record is! His decision to come out of the freediving competitions and go for the ‘no limit’ category marked him out being an extraordinary human being. Based on him, this category shouldn’t be considered nor utilized as an activity!

His quest brought him to attain ‘the ultimate dive.’

In June 2005, within three days and only ten dives in the Red Ocean, Patrick Musimu marked history by diving consecutively to 100, 136, 151, 170, 185 meters, and on the 26 th of June, he finally arrived at the mythical mark of 200 meters.

On 30th June 2005, his body, exhausted, forced him to prevent following a dive of 209,6 meters, shattering the most excellent human performance registered by almost 40 meters. His record was finally damaged by Herbert Nitsch on 14th June 2007 having a dive of 214m. See more in the next article…

Musimu is an extremely focused man. Pay attention to his ideas on how he achieves his dives: “Throughout a free dive i think my thoughts detached from my body. When I merge into the maritime world, I outside of the predetermined idea I’ve of myself. There is nothing absolute, and barriers are mere mental ideas. Slowly and gradually, my thoughts gain the conviction that there aren’t any limits. In this quest, free diving becomes my instrument, that we play just like a virtuoso in the silent world of great depths.”

There is no need to dive to 200m. In the end, it’s dark lower there… A 45 second dive to around 30ft is usually quite deep enough. Most of the ocean’s color and animal life resides within 30ft of the surface, so there’s little need to go much deeper. 45 seconds is usually lots of time to have a couple of photographs, relax with the fish, or perhaps shoot your supper. Best of all the person with average skills can master these sort of dives in a couple of days without having to spend valuable cash on the costly package. Your essentials – mask, snorkel, fins, wetsuit, and weight belt pack easily right into a bag. Visit us at https://www.freediveacademy.com/ to know more.

For those who have any romantic views on achieving, or trying to achieve, depths much like Patrick Musimu’s – please first watch the 1988 film “The Big Blue.” Only tragedy will probably be your reward so for heavens’ sake admire others and stay with where there’s light in the sea! – unless of course, of course, you’re doing so correctly, take instruction, and so forth, etc.
