Red Wine: Drink What Heals You


Aaaah, red wine. I just adore it, more than any other. While I profess not to be a wine connoisseur, I can certainly very easily strive towards that end... I have my favorites; particularly South African Nederburg Pinotage amongst a variety of additional South African wines. A pinotage is a red wine grape that is South Africa's "signature variety". It is a combination of Pinot noir and Cinsaut.


Aside from the robust flavors and aromas of wine, they have great health benefits that I'm sure many can appreciate.  I thought it might be best to distinguish varied types first for those who require a refresher of information, or those who wish to learn more about varied red wines.

* 8 Major Types Of Red Wines*

There are 8 types of red wines popularly consumed in the U.S., although I find myself branching out from the ones I wish to mention. They are as follows:

1. Merlot
2. Cabernet Sauvignon 
3. Syrah / Shiraz 
4. Malbec
5. Pinot noir
6. Zinfandel
7. Sangiovese
8. Barbera

The health benefits linked to moderate wine consumption are mostly due to the resveratrol content. Resveratrol is a compound found in some plants. Plants produce resveratrol to fight off bacteria and fungi. Resveratrol also protects plants from ultraviolet irradiation. Red wine contains more resveratrol than white wine because it is fermented with the skins (white wine is not). Most of the resveratrol in grapes is in the seeds and skin. The following plants and drinks are rich in resveratrol:
  • Red wine
  • Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Bilberries
  • Peanuts
 
According to Medical News Today, red wine has been extensively studied over the years with impressive findings suggesting it may promote a longer lifespan, protect against certain cancers, improve mental health, and provide benefits to the heart. Red wine is also known to help you lose weight. It is important to emphasize that one must drink in moderation. Drinking excessively to the point of intoxication will negatively impact the health benefits, so wisely use judgement.

*14 Benefits Of Drinking Red Wine*

1. Lowers cholesterol
2. Controls blood sugar
3. Prevents Dementia
4. Strengthens immune system
5. Stops cancer cells (breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer)
6. Weight Loss
7. Complimentary meal ingredient
8. Slows the aging process 
9. Prevents severe sunburn 
10. Prevents blinding diseases
11. Improves lung function
12. Raises levels of omega-3 fatty acids
13. Prevents liver disease
14. Prevents type 2 diabetes 


**Always Drink With Caution**

While wine consumption may appear to be good for the health, drinking too much can lead to a higher risks of the following illnesses in addition to a host of others not mentioned: 
  • depression
  • mental health problems
  • cardiomyopathy
  • arrhythmias
  • stroke
  • hypertension
  • fatty liver
  • alcoholic hepatitis
  • cirrhosis
  • several cancers
  • pancreatitis

You Need Music In Your Life: Featured Artist, Ledisi

Photo from album cover: Ledisi "The Truth"

Electrifying and sultry singer Ledisi Anibade Young is a talented musical genius who deserves much recognition for the talent she brings to audiences and the music industry.  Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Ledisi inherited her musical talents having both parents with the inclusion of a step-father all singers and performer, although she would communicate with her biological father many years later. 

Ledisi /ˈlɛdɨs/, Yoruba (Nigerian) name meaning "to bring forth" is exactly what she does at every performance she gives. I had the wonderful opportunity of seeing her perform in 2014 in the Philadelphia area in Pennsylvania, and certainly won't make it my last. 

In the late 90's Ledisi formed a group named Anibade, which would then lead her to creating a body of work over a long period of years; album titles such as "Lost and Found" in 2008 where she received two Grammy nominations, "Turn Me Loose" released in 2009 and "The Truth" released in 2014, just to name a few. There were many more albums and varied performances in between from a span of time since 1995 up until today.

One of my personal favorite songs is featured on the video below.


VIDEO: LEDISI "LIKE THIS" WATCH!

             


Another all-time favorite of mine... This great song took me on my journey to West Africa and back in 2009. I never got tired of listening...

                 VIDEO: LEDISI "In The Morning" WATCH!
                                      and a few others.........




Ledisi has had some controversy in the beginning of 2015 where Beyonce was scheduled to perform (and did) "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" during the Grammys, oddly enough. It was Ledisi in fact who performed that song in the film "Selma", so it would only be befitting and make total sense that it would be Ledisi performing. However she took it well like the woman that she is as she stated that Beyonce's performance would allow the youngsters of her generation to be introduced to the song as well. 

Ledisi is a great talent and class act, and we look forward to her great talent and performances to come. Surely she will gift us (hopefully) for many more decades.

How Bad Leadership Kills Morale Of Talented Employees And Can Negatively Affect An Organization

by Abeni Bamidele

In an ideal world of employment, a new employee would like to think that they are not only welcomed but valued in the organization that they have selected to offer their services to. Aside from one primary purpose of receiving compensation (pay) for services, the employee may envision themselves being a part of an elite group of professionals who work in conjunction of each other for the purpose of succeeding in a series of goals. The employee may not only expect to offer their expertise and perspectives but also look forward to learning from other professionals who may have tenure and can "show them the ropes" in areas they may not have experienced before.

But what happens when an employee enters into an organization that does the polar opposite of what would keep them motivated, and in essence lose all morale. Now if this can happen to one employee, imagine a series of employees entering in to an organization where their talents, gifts and abilities are unappreciated. The end result can very well lead to an organization that is poorly operated, where goals aren't greatly achieved.

Believe it or not, this mishap could be avoided if only the leadership of the organization took the time to learn the fundamentals of preserving a healthy workforce, and by doing so with sincerity.

So how do the leaders of organizations get themselves caught up in a series of mistakes that would brake the morale of its employees? I can tell you, leadership style has a lot to do with it, for an organization is only as good as its leadership.



In an article written by Elizabeth Dexter-Wilson, "8 Bad Leadership Behaviors That Destroy Organizations" she describes how employees don't leave organizations, but rather the leader(s) that supervise them. Wilson identifies 8 poor behaviors leaders exhibit that drive talent out of the organization at the risk of  the success of the organization.

"8 Bad Leadership Behaviors"

1. Failing to listen to those you lead.

2. Failing to embrace and utilize the talents of those you lead.

3. Failing to acknowledge the work of those you lead.

4. Withholding information from those you lead.

5. Denying your team of direct information, but rather skimming through the details.

6. Denying your team the privilege of assisting in presenting their ideas and information to higher level management.

7. Holding grudges against those you lead.

8. Bullying those you lead or speaking to them in a condescending tone.


In Wilson's article she states that, "Identifying what you are doing wrong is the first step. You have the power to change..."

While the writer is correct in stating that the leader has the power to change, the challenge just may come when a leader has to face themselves in the mirror, self-reflect, and not only identify their deficiencies but admit to them.

Finally, writer Amy Rees Anderson, contributor of Forbes magazine says it best:

When good leadership is in place in a company, it can be felt throughout the entire organization... Everyone understands the vision and goals of the organization, and everyone has input into how they can be improved. Employees feel that they are an important part of the whole and that every job matters within the company... Employees are encouraged to compete with their own best to get ahead and they understand that helping their coworkers to succeed is the best way to get ahead themselves. The result of good leadership is high morale, good employee retention, and sustainable long-term success.

To the employee: Choose the organization carefully. Any signs of poor leadership, remove yourself quickly. To the employer: Self-reflection is key to overstanding your own need to either appreciate other's talents, or be threatened by them.

I Don't Like You And That's Okay


by Abeni Bamidele

There is nothing worse than having to put on a fake smile to folks you simply do not like. I notice that it happens all of the time, and have often wondered why a person would select not to obtain their authentic feelings towards others at least to the extent that if you are not feeling them...don't smile at them.

I'm not suggesting that one be rude towards another.

However I can say for my own self that I don't find myself smiling at someone when there is nothing endearing that I am feeling towards them. I should add that I am never rude.  But if I am looked at by another, who then proceeds to give me a grimace of a smile and my spirit tells me it is not sincere, I will not then grope for acceptance by reciprocating and putting on a phony smile in return. It takes up energy that should be utilized for a more positive situation. Let us just not like each other collectively and move on.


If only we would first start with the comforts of our own selves and being, to the extent that we control our day to day expressions. "Grinning-and-skinning" generally isn't attractive. For the most part, we know when someone is being artificial towards us. We can also deduct that others can readily tell when we ourselves are being artificial towards them. Which brings me to the question....

Why do we utilize the deception of "emotional" pleasantries when the situation frankly does not call for it?

According to the article "The Psychology of Emotions in Buddhist Perspective" by Dr. Padmasiri de Silva he states that:

An emotion occurs generally when an object is considered as something attractive or repulsive. There is a felt tendency impelling people towards suitable objects and impelling them to move away from unsuitable or harmful objects. The individual also perceives and judges the situation in relation to himself as attractive or repulsive. While a person feels attraction for agreeable material shape, he feels repugnance for disagreeable material shapes. An individual thus possessed of like and dislike approaches pleasure-giving objects and avoids painful objects.

What the good doctor states makes a lot of sense. Yet if this is the case, what is the deal with putting on disguises for other people with twisted smirks particularly in a world that demonstrates itself as having disdain for others on a regular basis?

Well now, if I had one solid answer for you, I will have solved the world's problems.

My series of thoughts on this simply prompted me to write to you about preserving some authenticity when it comes to your emotional expressions. That would go for each expression that you have. When you are joyful, be joyful. When you are saddened, be saddened if you so choose. (Although it is probably best to minimize emotion all together).

But for goodness sake! The next time someone stands before you with a cracked grin that doesn't mean a damn thing, don't give them one in return. Just proceed with your natural course. You will feel a whole lot better when you embrace the authentic you. Don't worry...They'll be alright!

Autumn 2015: Create, Develop, Transition Into A New You


by Abeni Bamidele

So just exactly when does the equinox bring forth the date of Autumn you ask? 'Tis when the Sun crosses the celestial equator; and that my friends will be on Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 4:22 AM EDT... at least in my neck of the woods. 

This is particularly of interest to me because transition is both a miraculous and beautiful phenomenon. Most importantly, it is necessary.  Whatever situation or circumstances you may have found yourself in-- in the beginning of this Summer whether good or bad, under no circumstances should you be in the same predicament in the Season of Autumn. Whether it be your overall countenance, your strength and stamina, your resistance or openness, your opportunities and even in the midst of your stagnation...Your life as you know it right now, should gradually change. Transition is paramount to our own evolution.

As we experience a change in season, I encourage you to take a good look at the transition to Autumn; I mean really pay attention. Discover how each passing day goes by, and the evening darkness comes upon us just a little bit sooner. Examine the leaves on the trees as they transition from green to hues of red, orange, yellow and rustic brown, just before the tip off of them separating themselves from their temporary housing; the ever-reliable branches, ultimately meeting the Earth, only to transcend into another form. The air will be different. The seasonal birds and insects shall exit stage left, as nature's casting call shall introduce a new set of members to welcome us with high-pitched chirps as a new set of "creepy" crawlers shall confidently execute their due diligence, for in their own right, have a responsibility to this great Earth.



The beauty of your inevitable metamorphosis is, that you have a hand in guiding your transition. You have a divine opportunity to grab hold of the rhythm of nature's transition, by making yourselves more aware of what your intention is for your life during each changing day. Yes, this can serve as a mystical and magical opportunity for you to step outside of your present selves and actively participate in your own personal Autumn. This can manifest in an array of ways, depending upon what you desire to work on within yourselves.

Don't miss out on this astonishing opportunity to develop an even greater you.

You Are Uniquely And Brilliantly Adorned.

The Jumpsuit Can Withstand Fashion's Test Of Time


It has been said that the first jumpsuit was designed by a woman named Florentine Thayat in 1919. While I'm so sure that there were designers unrecognized well beyond her who invented this concept, jumpsuits were known to initially be intended for professionals in aviation, parachuting, and race car driving. Sportsmen, skiers, skydivers etc. would wear them for protection from the elements. The jumpsuit was and is known to be futuristic and liberating; a revolutionary style in comparison to other garments that were and still are worn today. Designer Thayat thought the jumpsuit was a universal item that was easy to make and wear. Today, they have become a major fashion trend and will continue to do so for many decades to come.

Jojoba Oil: Heals Skin, Grows Hair And Keeps You Looking Young


Jojoba plants are native to the “green desert” of southeastern Arizona and portions of the Mohave desert in southern California in the United States. It is a distant relative of the cloves tree grown in South and Southeastern Asia, but it is the only plant of its family in North America.

Jojoba nuts are eaten by squirrels, rabbits, rodents, and birds, but most animals eat them in small quantities because they cannot digest the wax the nut contains. Most animals do not eat jojoba nuts as they contain is actually a wax, with a chemical composition similar to whale blubber or the sebum in human skin.

Jojoba Oil Used As Skin Treatment 

Jojoba nuts deliver vitamin E to the skin. Nearly 80% of the vitamin E in the nuts is gamma-tocopherol, which is usually deficient in European and Australian (although not American and Canadian) diets. The nuts also contain alpha- and beta-tocopherol, and a compound called beta-sitosterol, which can interact with testosterone in the skin.

It is most commonly used as a carrier agent to help deliver healing substances deep into pores. Since jojoba oil is chemically similar to sebum, it easily mixes with sebum, and carries other substances deep down into the skin. 

7 Uses For Jojoba Oil 
1. Make-up remover
2. Sunburn relief lotion
3. Body lotion and foot cream
4. Anti-aging serum
5. Shaving gel
6. De-tangling hair oil
7. Hair re-growth serum

Intuition: 10 Ways To Get The Best Answers For Your Life


by Abeni Bamidele

Intuition in my estimation has to be the number one supernatural gift that we are given. It is our safety net; our highest source of intelligence that grants us the internal messages that will successfully guide us along our divine and spiritual path all of our lives. It should never be questioned or second guessed. It just is.

Intuition operates best in silence. It speaks to us and gives us the answers that we need to make the very next decision from the previous decision. It is a step by step guide to the perfection that rests within us, waiting to be utilized.

If a believer in God or an omnipotent power or energy source, you will find that intuition is the mechanism that propels you to achieve, keeps you safe and helps you to rapidly overstand other human beings. Those who do not utilize intuition can very easily find themselves in confused states and unable to make rational decisions, which can lead them through winding tumultuous roads, unsafe situations and even death.

There are a series of indicators to determine if your Third Eye (intuition) is being exercised. When we follow these series of steps, we know that we are using our minds in accordance to the divine gifting that is bestowed upon us.


 10 Ways To Make Intuition Work For Us:

1. Listen to your internal voice. (Your first thoughts are usually the correct ones.)

2. Take time to be quite and without distraction of others.

3. Realize your talents, gifts and abilities, then make them work on your behalf. Create.

4.Keep a watchful eye of everything around you. Leave no corner undone. Observe everything.

5. Listen to and feel the signals in your body. (heart rate, adrenaline, skin, muscle movement).


6. Empathize with others. Listen more and speak less.

7. Be mindful of your dreams. Write them down. What are they telling you?

8. Relax, relax, relax. Rest is necessary, so the body isn't giving you false signals.

9. Let go of negative energy completely. Speak positive things into existence. 

10. Follow your mind (thoughts). Your "gut" feeling are usually your indicators that you are on the right tract.

Go Ahead...Have A Drink In The A.M. If You Want To!



Noooo...I am not promoting alcoholism. Although I did have a sip of plum wine this morning with a bowl of fruit. Mmmm good.

What I'm telling you is to do what the hell you want to do. Please don't wait on other people's morals, values and opinions to define what it is that they think you should do, when you are blessed to wake up in the morning and make decisions for yourself.

Opinions are like what...? And everyone has one.

The next time someone tries to inflict their ideology on you and  attempt to tell you what they think you need to do for yourself, kindly smile (because I'm all about politeness) thank them for their suggestion...then do what the hell it was that you were going to do for you with fervor... and in their face! Hahaa...

The only way to win, is to be your authentic you.

Make An Exceptional Jewelry Statement: You're Worth It


       It's When Jade Meets The Ankh... 


Raspberry Jade Egyptian Ankh Necklace, Gemstone Beaded Statement Necklace, African Inspired Necklace

The Raspberry Jade Egyptian Ankh Statement Necklace is definitely designed for the person who can appreciate gemstones and the statement of eternal life. Necklace approx. 26" length, lobster claw clasp.

Raspberry Jade, "The Stone of Dreams" reminds us of the magic that is all around and within us, and helps to bring out the gentle and welcoming side of us. It opens the mind to become more lighter, and can help break negative thought cycles, as well as lift the mood.

The Ankh  is the Kemetic hieroglyph which represents the hieroglyph ´nh (ankh) meaning "life" or "breath of life". The glyph appears in an incredible number of inscriptions and was often used as a decorative device. Many of the gods of Khemit are depicted bearing the Ankh to represent their vivacity and immortality. Occasionally the gods and goddesses extends the Ankh to the Pharaoh, indicating purification and the gift of life.

Walter Palmer: Lion Murderer And Psuedo Health Care Professional Wants To Go Back To Work


So it seems the infamous murderer of Cecil the Lion of Zimbabwe is ready to go back to what he calls his "health care practice" of dentistry. He's been hiding out for a few months in shame, or at least until the public's sentiment of his actions diffuses. Walter Palmer, who apparently numbed his brain with his own Novocaine failed to research the law to find out that the murder of this brilliant animal was illegal.

He's pouting now, because his family is affected by the public outcry of his insensitivity and heinous and barbaric crime towards this regal animal. Let us not forget that Palmer beheaded and skinned the lion after letting it be tortured for 40 hours...

You know, I've often said that the smaller the genitals the greater the criminal act.

"I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt," Palmer said late July in a statement. "I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt."

Accountability is NON-EXISTENT.

At any rate, if in the area, be sure to seek your dentistry in Bloomington, Minnesota at Palmer's dental office as I'm sure he'll hook you right up. Seek assistance from this pseudo healthcare provider at your own risk, as the spirit of death falls on his hands.

AYA: Adversity Builds Endurance

AYA is the Ghanaian Adinkra symbol representing endurance and resourcefulness. As per the Adinkra Dictionary by Willis, it states that the fern is a hardy plant that can grow in difficult
places.

"An individual who wears this symbol suggests that he/she has endured many adversities and outlasted much difficulty."

Where does your strength and endurance lie? What have you overcome that has made you the galactic being that you are?

Adversity builds strength and character; for without it, you would be weaklings. When others look at you, they are in awe for they know not how you became who you are. They may question it, or even try to duplicate it. But if they have not endured the struggle and then the triumph thereafter, their efforts to become a knock-off of you will be done in vein.

You are the opposite of common. And it is only because of your individuality, capabilities  and your unusual experiences that have made you that magnificent and talented person that you are today. Relish in your perfection!

The Ultimate Guide To Placating A Predator


by Abeni Bamidele

When eyes are watching you....

Be sure to give them something they can really grasp onto.
Let them think that they are figuring you all out.
Let them answer all the questions they've kept in their myopic minds that will give them a sense of satisfaction that what they think they know to be true about you is so...at least is for them.
Give them things to envy.
Take them places in their minds that they have never been, then leave them there stranded with no way to return.
Make them uncomfortable.
Make them fidgety.
Give them things that they can duplicate.
Provide them with a means to gossip.
Smile with them and laugh at all of their jokes.
Compliment their antics.
Take them very seriously.
Now smile once more...

And in a flash...
Execute abandonment.

Then vanish.

For what they think they have seen of you is merely a figment of their dim imaginations.

Quit Your Job And Gain The Renewing Of Your Soul



by Abeni Bamidele

Imagine standing in solitary confinement for a moment, in a space no larger than a small utility closet. There is no place to sit or even kneel. Enclosed quarters, darkness everywhere with a stench of deadening funk that lingers and agitates you. No one to talk to or at least seek help. Nothing to see. No windows to look out of that give a small ray of hope that this entrapment is merely temporary. No indicators of day or night. You are now suffocating as the oxygen decreases which formulates a mild headache at the sides of your temples. Your eyesight is blurry, and you begin to feel a tingling sensation in your limbs and finger tips, for a lack of blood circulation. The palms of your hands are cold and clammy. Your toes begin to numb for there is no area in this space enough to move about to get your organs back into a functional state.

You have some choices to make.

Either you watch your own slow death and merely collapse and end it all, or you fight for the superior extraordinary life you were given by ripping and tearing your way out of the door that confines you so that you can BREATHE. Hell, maybe all you really had to do is turn the door knob and walk out from the start. No one ever said the door was locked in the first place.

Your Job, Your Career, The Work That You Do On Behalf Of Others...

As frightening as it may seem to some, when you have extended as much energy in a place that renders feelings of decompensation, it's time to make some decisions. You can try and hang in there for as long as your psyche will allow or you can decide to have the great awakening, see the sunlight ahead, breathe the fresh air, smell the good green Earth and change your course.


Your fight is the preservation of your talents, gifts and abilities.

Your flight is the removal of situations and circumstances that can kill your harmony, order and balance.

In this regard, fight and flight work in conjunction of each other.
