Guest Post The Truth About White Supremacy, Sexism and Mind Control in America

Guest Post by A.L. Bryant

I’m probably not like most traditional writers who have a set editing process for their book. After finishing the rough draft, I read it over several times and change it along the way. I determine where the weak areas are that don’t flow with the overall concept and change them. After going through this process several times, I feel satisfied and complete the final manuscript.

About the Book

Title: The Truth About White Supremacy, Sexism and Mind Control in America

Author: A.L. Bryant

Genre: Religion, Spirituality & New Age

Take a journey through America to unearth the truths behind white supremacy and sexism in society. Delve into the deepest and most fascinating secrets behind racism and sexism—the secrets they do not want you to know and may not realize.

Examine the origins and progression of racism, sexism, relationships in America, and the science and psychology behind what is real and what is an illusion. Discover how mind control is the weapon of choice to keep certain groups in power and others in the dark and oppressed. This book gives different perspectives from the physical to the metaphysical.

Finally, we explore astonishing revelations about why we are here, who we are, and how to heal and evolve to a higher spiritual level. Explore the mind-blowing revelations and proven facts that will challenge the way you think about people, life, and the universe.

Though this book focuses on America, its breathtaking discoveries can be applied everywhere, and with anyone around the world.

Book Review A-C-T Like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K Like a Parent

Title: A-C-T Like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K Like a Parent

Author: C.S. Whitehurst

Genre: Nonfiction self-help

Just for kicks, have you ever wondered what your parents really want from you in life? Is it you, or do your parents want you to have no real fun? On any given day, do you want to make your parents proud of you and still do what makes you feel really happy within yourself? Of course you do! But the real question has always been, and still is…how? How can we actually get this done?

Well, with A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent, a.k.a “the child-part consoler”, you will get past common misunderstandings by learning how to truly talk, hear, and listen to your parents, guardians or caregivers instead of feeling like you have to run to friends to find some sense of acceptance, understanding, and real connection.

In this book, chock-full of questions and answers gotten directly from the source, you’ll learn what your parents, guardians or caregivers really expect of you—and maybe you’ll even find out how to explain to them what you really expect from them! Not that this book could ever replace a parent, because it can not. But when it comes to openly communicating certain key ideas, this book comes really close.

This tell-all guide contains lots of enlightening explanations and helpful answers to many common kid questions like:

  • What do my parents really want from me?
  • Why do my parents do what they do and say what they say?
  • What do I really need to know about my parents’ parenting skills?
  • How can I keep my parents happy with me?
  • How can I help my parents to help me?
  • How can I get what I want from my parents every time?

A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent is an intro to the secret knowledge of adults which is a set of informations that is mainly covered in the book entitled Surrogate Re-Parenting: A.K.A. Get Your Mind Right, and even more thoroughly covered in the book The Secret Knowledge Of Adults. While this book, A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent is intended for kids 10 and up, the info in this book is beneficial and useful to the intelligent kid parts in all of us. Yes, this means you too.

The information in this book will help you and yours to start to see your parents, not as the enemy, but as the caring human beings they really are, and take the first step toward family unity, understanding, growth, success, and happiness! Both you and your parents really deserve this, and with this book, A-C-T like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K like a Parent, you and your parents can actually achieve this.

A-C-T Like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K Like a Parent intends to improve the relationship between teens and their parents, by explaining to the kids how and why adults do certain things. For example, why a parent would forbid something, or what they really want. Vice versa, it also helps kids by showing them some techniques how they can get their parents to help them, and how to get what they want from their parents, and techniques on how to explain to your parents what is wrong and what you expect from them (and they expect from you).

It’s an interesting book, and the dual parent-kid approach is very insightful. Especially for troublesome teens, I think the book would be a good read. However, I found that although the book is aimed at kids, the subject matter would be too complicated for younger kids, and it’s more appropriate for young teens and older.

Author Interview A-C-T Like a Kid and T-H-I-N-K Like a Parent

Author Interview

Have you been writing for a long time? What inspired you to start a writing career?  

Katherine Shears

Yes, and I honestly believe I’ve always been a writer. We all have infinite capabilities and various talents that come naturally to us. From as far back as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed expressing myself through writing.I am inspired to write knowing that my writing will be around for future generations. That’s some serious sharing.

C.S. Whitehurst

I’ve been writing stories since I was a kid. When I was in college, I was studying game development, and I had to write game narratives. Then, I realized that there was a great need for a certain set of informations that I, my schoolmates, and my professors had, that people in many urban neighborhoods did not have, information that makes functioning in higher society possible. My coauthor and I stockpiled the fundamental information that could be used to help fortify the intellectual foundation while enhancing a person’s knowledge and logic. And there, our first published book was born.

 

Do you plan to write more books similar to this one?  

Katherine Shears and C. S. Whitehurst:

There might possibly be a Part 2, because, to keep the page-count short in Part 1, we left out a set of important informations that would help make personal transformations and explanations in a person much more complete and thorough. 

 

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

Katherine Shears:

When you have an idea, question, or thought, write it down! Get it out of your head onto something that will allow you to go back and work on it at will. The brain deals with a multitude of information, and when busy it will keep you from remembering important things when you need to the most.

C.S. Whitehurst

 

For new writers, I would suggest have a picture in your mind of who you want your book to reach, and imagine talking to that audience, sharing what you want them to know and learn, and try to remember to a voice recorder, or some other recording device, to not have it all in your head, so you can have an easier time when typing it up later.

 

 

 

Are you working on another book now?

Katherine Shears and C. S. Whitehurst:

We are working on a few more collaborations together currently, that are aimed at helping parent/kids relationship.  One is Surrogate Re-parenting 2: AKA. Get Your Mind Right 2, and the other we have yet to choose a title for. Both of which should be released in early 2018.

Author Interview It Feels Good To Feel Good

 

Have you been writing for a long time? 

No, I just started writing when the opportunity arose through a course at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.  © They offered a Launch Your Dream Book© course while I was in a program to become an Integrative Health Coach.

 

What inspired you to start a writing career? 

I had a story that was begging to be told.  My personality is to be a story teller, and I had done 5 years of research to get myself well from inflammation and autoimmune disease, so it made sense to share it with the world and help others in my situation.

 

Is this book a stand-alone, or part of a series? 

It will be part of a series.  My next book is going to be how I live around 18 food sensitivities and as toxin free as possible.  It will be another hands on guide about all of the things that have now become second nature to me, but took a while to figure out.  I think that the information in my second book will be another building block enabling people to lower their toxic load and return to wellness.

 

Why should people read your book? 

I wrote the manual that I wish I had had when I got sick with autoimmune disease five years ago.  In the beginning I didn’t even know what I was looking for. My conventional doctor was not helpful, she only wanted to give me pills, and so I took my health into my own hands and started doing research.  There are many things that would be useful to anyone who is sick with inflammation.

I do a chapter on how to tell if you have inflammation.

I encourage people to “own” their own health, and to question everything.

I explain what the functional medicine approach is, and how it saved my life.

I discuss what autoimmune disease, and what the main causes of it are.

And then I go through toxins in all phases of our lives, and what I replaced them with.

 

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors? 

I am a strong believer that what you do in any phase of your life should be something that you have passion for.  If you have passion obstacles are something to find a way to get around.  I believe that this is also important to keep in mind as an author.  I wrote a nonfiction book about something that I really want to get out to the world.  But I am an avid fiction reader, so if you have a story that you are passionate to put onto paper and share with the world, then it needs to be written.  Don’t worry about if it is perfect, just sit down and write from your heart.  Just do it.  If you don’t jump off the cliff, you will never know if you can fly.  You can always go back and edit later….just start to get it out of your head and onto paper.  It will take on a life of its own.

Author Bio

About Cheryl Meyer aka Cheryl M Health Muse and her book, “It Feels Good to Feel Good, learn about toxins, reducing inflammation and feel great again.”

Five years ago, Cheryl got sick, really sick.  It was a perfect storm: she was working 24/7; her long-term relationship imploded; economic changes slowed her business; she got Type II diabetes; she was taking care of everyone else; her stress was out of control.

Then one morning … viola, Cheryl woke up in incredible pain that didn’t go away. Her doctor didn’t recognize what it was and thought it was in her head.

Cheryl didn’t want more pills, so she embarked on her own journey to find wellness.  When she started, she didn’t even know what she was looking for.  She was stunned to find toxins in every aspect of her life that were poisoning her.  She discovered the Functional Medicine community.  She was tested for food sensitivities.

This book shares everything that Cheryl learned to reverse her inflammation and put her autoimmune diseases at bay.  This is the get well manual that she wishes had been available when she got sick. The book is about first identifying  that toxins that were a significant cause of her leaky gut, then she identified  what  the toxins were  and finally she shares what she replaced them with. She addresses the toxins in our food, in our cosmetics, our cleaning supplies, our kitchen utensils, our water, our over the counter drugs, and even in our heads, stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, lack of movement and finally toxic relationships.  She wants to help others find a path to wellness.

Cheryl is now relatively pain-free, but still considers herself a work in progress.  She avoids the foods and spices on her specific, long list of problem foods.  She has purged toxins.  She has released stress and nagging worry.  She has learned to find joy in movement.  She has found love.  She is grateful.

Cheryl believes that following her journey will help you live a long, happy and pain-free life.
In order to help others, Cheryl has become a Holistic Health Coach, certified from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition©.

My book has won the following awards to date:

  • 3rd place CIPA EVVY Health/Wellness,
  • 2nd Place CIPA EVVY Illustrator in a non-children’s book
  • New Apple Summer Digital sole winner in Health/medical
  • The Living Evergreen Award Gold winner for books that exemplify better living.
  • It is in the top 10 from Write your Own Dream Book, November 17, Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
  • TOP 12 Books on the Spirited Woman Fall Equinox 2017 book list.

If you want to truly feel better…clean up! Just one tip from Cheryl’s book will change your life. She has written the ultimate source for getting well through detoxification.”Suzy Cohen, RPh Author of “Drug Muggers: Which Medications Are Robbing Your Body of Essential Nutrients and How to Restore Them.

“You have taken putting soap in the mouth for naughty words …” to a New Level!  LOL Who knew we were surrounded by so many toxins.

I’ve pretty much finished your book now working on giving sections to my family and friend that I think will especially appreciate certain chapters!  YOU, my Dear, have found your calling, YOU make this rather “dull” subject a Very Good, interesting read, with fun personal touches along the way.

I LOVE your book; I hope people will embrace it.  Why worry so much about health care if we keep killing ourselves with poison.  We can all start with eliminating the toxins out of our lives.              Val Peterson

“As a Functional Medicine Doctor who partners with patients to deal with the root causes of their symptoms, it was a pleasure to read a book that offers such a comprehensive yet simple approach to improve health, reduce inflammation and pain, lose weight and increase energy. This is a great reference to keep in reach on your own journey to optimal wellness.  If you are struggling with chronic symptoms like digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, and autoimmune disorders, this book may really help you. It lays out practical tools that you can use right away and at your own pace, everything from how to change your shopping choices to getting more comprehensive medical testing to reduce your toxic burden. Her simple to understand, well researched and easy-to-adopt tools can be helpful to even the busiest among us.”   Dr. Shilpa Sayana, Founder and Medical Director, Sayana Wellness Centers

“Cheryl has been not only been an exemplary patient, she has made it her mission to inspire and help others with her experience and knowledge!”   Susan Spizer, MTCM, L.Ac.

She writes like she talks, straight and with passion.  What you will read here will surprise you. A helpful read that you will refer back time and time again for reference.” Scott Lee, Master, Body and Brain Yoga, Monrovia

“My friend, Cheryl Meyer has written a book that I recently finished called “It feels good to feel good”. It has a lot of common sense solutions (many that you would never think of) to healthy, toxin free living designed around the reduction of inflammation through what you put in and on your body. Most of this is from her personal experience. I know Cheryl to be one of the finest people you’ll ever know. Cheryl’s also a big proponent of “functional medicine”. If you are unfamiliar with this form of medical practice, you need to read her book. It will change the way you think”.  Frank Jones

Cheryl’s book is as timely as it is informative. This is an excellent read for those seasoned in the holistic lifestyle as well as those just beginning. There is something for everyone. Her material covers everything from probiotics, house cleaning materials, and abdominal massages, to which teas to drink for better sleep. She has the latest information on metal detoxing and extensive research on the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat.

Cheryl provides real solutions that can be implemented far beyond the basics with a bend toward functional medicine. I personally ordered three products within hours of reading her book. I’m especially thrilled with the depth of her research around relationships and those that can be toxic. Make sure to read this book and hold onto the “not to miss points” at the beginning of each section.

Guest Post Did I Ever Thank You, Sister?

Guest Post

I started a little exercise about twenty years ago that has really changed my perspective on life, especially when I get uptight about things.

When I was young and in the orphanage back in the 1960’s, and for many years afterwards, I would literally wake up afraid every day. I guess it was because my childhood before I got to the orphanage at 8 was so disjointed and unpredictable, such as to always wonder if were we even going to eat that day, or was my father going to beat my mother, etc., I just learned not to trust or feel secure.

But, as an adult, I was given great advice to look for the good in life and in my past and hang on to that. That is how I discovered gratitude. Today, when I feel afraid or insecure,  I look back on the previous day and I do an inventory looking for the good that happened and I find myself smiling and feeling grateful about just how great life is and how “An average day, is a great day”.

I then realize how fortunate I am that my life has turned out so good. But, it was a lot of kindness from many people who helped me along the way that helped me get to where I am today.

 Just cooking for my lovely wife of 36 years is a great thought. She loves my cooking and I love to cook for her. It is the little things that matter.

Guest Post Your Crossroads. Your Choice.

Guest Post

I am going to choose a topic to talk about and that topic is fear.

As enlightened mammals we are both blessed and cursed with the ability to experience fear. Even the most primitive beings have the fear response, it is what keeps them out of harm’s way.  We are the only ones who have the nightmarish ability to manifest fear in our own minds, a place we can never escape from.

Or can we? Who’s to say that we can not simply and politely push that unnecessary fear into a deep, dark closet and lock the door. Then throw away the key. Having some level of fear is essential to sustaining your life. It’s what keeps you thinking twice about base jumping, driving with your eyes closed or playing outside with a metal rod in a lighting storm. It is the other fear, the stuff we manage to conjure up out of our very own worst nightmares. Why do we do it? Guess what – the answer might surprise you. More fear. That’s right folks – we fear success as much if not more than failure.

Why? Why does being successful create such a feeling of fear? It is for the same reason we fear failure – it is an unknown. If we live in a constant, a cyclical, routine existence then we will always know (for the most part) what to expect. Once we begin to step out of our comfort zone, we lose the ability to predict our future and therefore lose the (false) sense of control we thought we had over our mediocre routines.

When I started writing this book, I felt fear about admitting my true feelings. When it was accepted at Page Publishing, I felt fear that I was making a huge mistake, that I was some kind of fraud unworthy of having my work out in the universe. And when the book went public I felt fear. Fear that everyone was now going to have access to my innermost thoughts along this broken, staggered journey I am on.

Through the writing of Your crossroads. Your choice. I began to recognize this false fear. I began to kick it in the nuts so to speak and send it packing. I have felt the weight lift from my shoulders as I accepted my passion, embraced my journey and turned it into a witty, creative outlook on an otherwise commonplace journey. You see, my new friends, the things that happen to us in life are not what define us. Rather, it is the choices we make that make us who we are. I chose to feel success rather than fear. What will you choose?

 

About the Book

Title: Your crossroads. Your choice.

Author: EJ Apicello

Genre: Self-help

Welcome to my diary, my journey, as I tripped and crawled through the darkest time in my life- when I witnessed  people that I held incredibly close to me shatter my very existence with their words and actions. The things within this book spine are extremely raw and exceptionally real. You and I are going to get very close, the details in this book, although oddly general, are incredibly specific. Yes, I realize what I just said and as you read my words you will see what I mean. As you silently gasp and mentally bitch slap me, please be kind because my story is just that – my story. It is not any more or less special than yours. In fact the only difference between our stories are the choices we made at each of the crossroads in our lives. For most of my life the choices I made were not based on my happiness but on everyone else’s. This book describes what I have experienced in my journey to finding my happiness and hopefully never letting it go. Sadly, it took me thirty six years to find the strength I need to detoxify my life and self view and find someone who is worthy of my awesomeness. Thirty six years to shatter the negative foundation I had built shatter the ultimate representative I created to hide behind and begin the process of building a new foundation. Only this foundation will be built on strength, confidence and above all, happiness. So take a minute or thirty and sit with my story for a while. You never know what you might find out.

 

Author Bio

Welcome to my real, crazy, emotional, probably too honest journey. I am an everyday girl in this everyday world trying to keep my head above water and within the pages of this book you will learn about the things that have broken me down  and the steps I am taking to build back up. You will see, my new friends, that this story is written in a unique, general, conversational voice, which was my choice. I want you to be able to picture yourself in my shoes, relate my trials and tribulations to yours and see that you too can find your happiness. Even if you don’t realize this yet, every single one of us possesses things inside of ourselves that we didn’t know were there. It took my life taking a crazy right turn and dumping me at the lowest possible point before I could see the strength within myself. We are not defined by what we do, we are defined by the choices we make. I decided when I put pen to paper that I want my choices to start defining me as strong, confident, secure and above all else, happy. So, who am I? How about I tell you who I was – a self loathing shell of myself who put everyone else’s happiness before my own. Herein lies my story to find that happiness and all of the ups and downs along the way. See who I was and who I am trying to become and maybe, somewhere in there, you will find out a little about yourself too.
