Lomi Lomi Massage in Honolulu http://www.melenaiaspa.com

imageFriends, I have found a very special place on the Islands and I want to share it with you, but first let me tell you a little of the culture that is involved:

The Hawaiian term Lomi Lomi is used to describe a very special massaging technique which involves gentle rubbing, pressing, massaging and kneading, similar to the kneading of bread dough or what a cat does with it’s paws when content.

Unlike a regular massage, Lomi Lomi uses targeted and controlled yet gentle manipulations to holistically heal and detoxify the body, mind and spirit.

Once performed by the ʻōlohe lua (Hawaiian martial arts masters) and the kahuna lāʻau lapaʻau (healers) as a luxury for the ali’i (ruling chiefs) of ancient Hawaii.

During the 1800s,the Kingdom of Hawaii was being converted to Christianity.  As a result, the art of Lomi Lomi was almost lost due to various religious inspired laws that made it a crime to practice what the church considered “a heathen practice”.  Many healers were forced underground, carrying with them the secrets of this ancient tradition and passing it down amongst family members and close trusted friends.

imageI am happy to announce that I have recently found a beautiful place right here on the Islands that offers the same services once reserved for royalty.  You can now experience the beauty of Lomi Lomi with a wide range of special services offered by the Mele Nai’a Spa in Honolulu, Hawaii. Weather your just visiting or kama’aina, you will discover the joy and benefits of relaxation and detoxification from each Lomi Lomi session.

Chief Wilma Mankiller, First female Cherokee Nation Chief Dies at age 64

On behalf of the National Indian Education Association, it is with heartfelt sympathy that our condolences are extended to the family of former Chief Wilma Mankiller and the Cherokee Nation.

Chief Mankiller’s unwavering vision and compassionate leadership has been demonstrated many times as Native people strive to achieve self sufficiency.

Her legacy will continue to inspire the vision of NIEA as we work to advance Indian education in Indian country.

It is with pride Native children have culturally responsive books and materials in their classrooms and libraries with positive Native role models inspired by people such as Chief Mankiller.

We join Indian Country in the mourning of Chief Mankiller, truly a wonderful leader who inspired the world.

– Patricia L. Whitefoot, President of the National Indian Education Association.

 Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation, died of pancreatic cancer Tuesday. She was 64.

The Oklahoma native served as chief of the Cherokee Nation from 1985 to 1995, and was the first female to do so, and in 1998, President Bill Clinton awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor.

Chief Wilma MankillerMankiller spoke at OU in October at an American Indian symposium. She said Native American studies programs should partner with native communities to develop models that improve education, health, government and leadership among tribes.

“We need to chart a new course for the future,” Mankiller said. “Things have changed, so we need to change.”

Mankiller made a lasting mark on the state and the nation, OU President David Boren said.

“She helped all Americans understand the need to preserve the basic values of community and stewardship which are central to Native American culture,” Boren said by e-mail. “Above all, through her example she taught us the power of kindness and how to live and die with dignity.”

President Barack Obama said he was saddened to hear of her passing.

“Her legacy will continue to encourage and motivate all who carry on her work,” Obama said in a press release. “Michelle and I offer our condolences to Wilma’s family, especially her husband Charlie and two daughters, Gina and Felicia, as well as the Cherokee Nation and all those who knew her and were touched by her good works.”

Obama said Mankiller improved relations between American Indians and the federal government, and inspired American Indian girls to lead and speak out.

NON religious Alternative To Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12 step programs

If you or a loved one is suffering from an alcohol or drug addiction, please read this short intro to the St Gregory Retreat Center.  In a nutshell, they believe that addiction is not an incurable disease that will haunt you for the rest of your life, it’s just bad choices you are making and they teach you the tools you need to make the right choices.  It’s truly amazing what they do.  It just might change your life.  It changed my son’s life and that’s why I want to share it with you.

The Life Process Program© utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Training developed through decades of research.

The Life Process Program© taught at St. Gregory Retreat Centers is unlike any traditional drug or alcohol rehabs in the U.S. Rather than presume that an individual is powerless to change his or her behavior, that is exactly what we are here to help people do! We have found that, if given the tools to confront the issues underlying the addictive, dependent behavior, our residents are not only able, but excited to change their lives. Through education, motivational interviewing, and life skills training, the Life Process Program© offered at St. Gregory’s is a proactive approach designed to instill in our students the tools necessary to move through their addictive behaviors and on to a life of purpose and positive rewards. The Life Process Program© incorporates three crucial aspects of addiction recovery:

First, the environment is safe, positive, and comfortable. This is an exciting place to be. This is not a place to come and dwell on the past or focus on how bad life can be. This is a place to come and learn how to take back control of your life! It is a place of hope! Our facilities are designed to encourage that feeling. During your stay, you will truly feel at home and will be treated as a guest rather than as a patient.

Second, the emotional issues surrounding drug and alcohol abuse are addressed utilizing the skills taught here. Graduates of our program take with them a new set of tools and skills to confront their problems and make the choices necessary to live enduringly happy, successful lives without abusing drugs or alcohol. 

Third, the St. Gregory Program addresses the physical aspects of addiction and alcoholism. Drug and alcohol abuse causes significant damage to an individual’s body. Cravings, insomnia, lack of energy, depression, and anxiety are just a few of the symptoms related to continued substance abuse. To address this, our guests are put on a personalized neutraceutical program. This is a completely natural program utilizing nutrition and specific supplements to aid the detoxifying of the liver and stimulate the proper functioning of the body according to each individual’s needs. Upon completion of the Life Process Program©, our graduates are physically and emotionally stable and equipped with the tools to achieve a life of purpose and fulfillment.

Cognitive Behavioral Modification via Education. Cognitive Behavioral Training (CBT) is vastly more effective in treating addiction and alcoholism than traditional 12-step programs. CBT assists an individual in coming to their own realizations rather than trying to convince them of something. To tell someone to “not abuse drugs” is insulting and generally futile. By contrast, to help someone objectively come to make a choice not to abuse drugs based on all factors involved has a lasting effect, because the consequences of the choice are now real to them.

An important aspect of the Life Process Program© lies in the delivery. Rather than utilizing individual therapists to administer the program, our staff is comprised primarily of educators. The psychological understanding and techniques involved in the Life Process Program© have been developed into a process which is taught to the residents of the St. Gregory Retreat Center. This process, applied to each individual’s life circumstances, serves as a road map for the individual to accurately evaluate problems and work through them in a positive, productive way. Having been taught this process and how to apply it to different situations, people are able to utilize it for the rest of their lives.

The St. Gregory Life Process Program© is the only program that truly accomplishes rehabilitation. Our graduates are prepared mentally, emotionally, and physically to return to their families ready to pursue a new life. They are not reliant on the support of loosely organized meetings with other addicts to stay sober. Instead, they are able to hold true to their values and integrity to move forward with their lives. Traditional 12-step programs seek only to provide an individual with enough resources to avoid accountability for themselves so that they no longer feel the guilt associated with their actions or the choices they made, making perpetually “recovering” addiction or alcoholism a more livable condition. Traditional models of drug rehabilitation centers or alcohol treatment programs do not achieve or even strive for true rehabilitation. The Life Process Program© at the St Gregory Retreat Center changes that.

A few words from the author…

"If you are searching for a solution for yourself or a loved one in the battle you or they are fighting with substance abuse, the Life Process Program©, exclusively taught at St Gregory Retreat Center, will give you the best chance to learn the life skills necessary to live without dependency on drugs or alcohol. You do not have an incurable disease; you have a dependency that has been brought on by your choices. Since they are your choices, you control them."

"The Life Process Program© emphasizes your place in the world, including your friends and family, your work and purpose in life, your motivation, and the rewards you derive from activities that replace substance abuse. The Life Process Program© shows you how to touch base with your values and inventory your resources and assets – the positive things you come with. YOU are the person who is going to be living your life free of substance abuse outside of St. Gregory’s. The best guarantee that you can do so is that you demonstrate these abilities while you are there. So we ask you to think about your life, to write about it, to rehearse new skills, to set goals now and for the future, and to plan and practice how you will achieve these when you leave. This is accomplished through behavior modification training, life-skills exercises, and cognitive behavior training (CBT) – all of which I have written exclusively for the St Gregory Retreat Center. That is why I believe that the Life Process Program© is the most advanced addiction-prevention course now available in the U.S."

WHO IS Hippolyta?

Hippolyta first appears in myth when she encounters Theseus, king of Athens, who was accompanying Heracles on his quest against the Amazons. When Theseus first arrived at the land of the Amazon they expected no malice, and so Hippolyta came to his ship bearing gifts. Once she was aboard Theseus abducted her and made her his wife. Thereafter Theseus and a pregnant Hippolyta returned to Athens. Theseus brazen act sparked an Amazonomachy, a great battle between the Athenians and Amazons.

Though Hippolyta gave birth to a son, Hippolytus, to Theseus, she was cast off when Theseus courted Phaedra. Scorned, Hippolyta went back to the Amazons, while Hippolytus had problems of his own with his new stepmother. Some sources paint Theseus in a more favorable light, saying that Hippolyta was dead before he and Phaedra were wed.

Hippolyta also appears in the myth of Heracles. It was her girdle that Heracles was sent to retrieve for Admeta, the daughter of king Eurystheus. The girdle was a waist belt from Ares that signified her authority as queen of the Amazons.

When Heracles landed the Amazons received him warmly and Hippolyta came to his ship to greet him. Upon hearing his request, she agreed to let him take the girdle. Hera, however, was not pleased, as was often the case with Heracles. To stop him, Hera came down to the Amazons disguised as one of their own and ran through the land, crying that Heracles meant to kidnap their queen. Probably remembering all too well what Theseus had done, the Amazons charged toward the ship to save Hippolyta. Fearing that Hippolyta had betrayed him, Heracles hastily killed her, ripped the girdle from her lifeless body, and set sail, narrowly escaping the raging warriors.

An alternate story of Hippolytas death is a direct result of Theseus marriage to Phaedra. With an army of Amazons behind her, Hippolyta returned to Athens and stormed into the wedding of Theseus and Phaedra. She declared that anyone partaking in the festivities would perish, but in the melee that ensued she was killed, either accidentally by her companion Penthesileia or by Theseus men.

A third story of Hippolytas death involved her sister, Penthesilea. Penthesilea had killed Hippolyta with a spear by accident when they were hunting deer; this accident caused Penthesilea so much grief that she wished only to die, but, as a warrior and an Amazon, she had to do so honorably and in battle. She therefore was easily convinced to join in the Trojan War, fighting on the side of Troys defenders.

In William Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream, Hippolyta is engaged to Theseus, the duke of Athens.

How to cover for accidental swearing in public

I heard something once about if you are caught swearing, they had a way to cover all the offensive language but the one I remember is FUCK…. What if you accidently blurt out FUCK in a public place?
 
Lets give the example of church; if you are in church, pta, anywhere that language of that nature should be avoided, and you forget to avoid it for an instance, you can add "eddabout it" to the end.
 
as an example, the paster tells you that your son just dropped  a dog turd in the holy water, and you grab your son and start to yell FUCK…  and then swiftly add the following “eddabout it"  (fuckeddabout it) You may sound a little like an old style Italian mafioso, but you successfully managed to cover your vulgar Faux Pas
 
funny stuff! lol
 
fuckeddaboutit forget abou it italian mobster mafioso
 
Here is another example of getting yourself out of the trouble your big mouth causes: This one brought to my attention by my good friend Tim the dentist in Des Moines IA.
 
A man in a Florida supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce.

image The young produce assistant tells him that they sell only whole heads of lettuce and there is no way of selling just “half”.

The man is persistent though and insists that the manager should be spoken too.
The boy says fine and proceeds down the hall to the manager’s office where upon walking in he exclaims: “Some asshole wants to Ron Howard opie taylor funny jokebuy half a head of lettuce.’ As he finished his sentence, he turns to find the man standing right behind him, so he quickly added, ‘And this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other half.’

The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way with his half of a lettuce head..

Later the manager said to the boy, ‘I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?’

Canada, sir,’ the boy replied.

‘Well, why did you leave Canada?’ the manager asked.

The boy said, ‘Sir, there’s nothing but whores and hockey players in Canada.’

‘Oh Really?’ said the manager as he leans close to the boy. ‘Well my WIFE is from Canada.’

To which the boy immediately replied: ‘Really? that’s awesome sir, which team did she play for?

canadian whore canada hooker hockey player bratz doll
The moral of this story is, ummm, errr…. I guess it’s “you can get yourself out of anything if you are clever enough”
