ObamaCare: Is Your Elected Representative Refusing Medicaid That Could Save Your Life And Livelihood?

ObamaCare and Medicaid

Refusing Medicaid will cost citizens more than just their health.

Getting sick is a very expensive thing to do!

Even if you have health insurance, you may find that your share of the bill is far more than your financial portfolio can cover.

If you own anything, prepare to pay.


We’ve discussed why there is no transparency in hospital care pricing in a previous post.

Remember why youth makes you pay bigger health care costs?  It doesn’t make any sense and it’s not the fault of sick/old people.

It isn’t the fault of pharmacies or insurance companies either.

Nope, it isn’t ObamaCare either!

You’d be surprised to find out that the ONLY protection you have from the threat of financial destruction is Continue reading ObamaCare: Is Your Elected Representative Refusing Medicaid That Could Save Your Life And Livelihood?

Will the Affordable Care Act Address Rising Mortality Rates?


Elderly woman and her daughter

(Check out the video at the bottom of this page if you’d like me to read this post to you.)

These days many woman I know say they feel attacked from all sides.

From unequal wages for the same work, to invasion of their medical privacy, women are feeling like they are asked to carry way too much of society’s burden without being given the care and respect they deserve.

Perhaps a woman’s employer does not believe in birth control.

Should she be forced to pay out of pocket to avoid an untimely pregnancy that could cripple her financially for the rest of her life?

One of the natural treatments for depression is to plan your family so it doesn’t cause financial ruin!


What if her wages are so low that she just can’t afford birth control?

Is it fair to enter her bedroom and put stress on her marriage?

That same employer maybe happy to cover her husbands Viagra so that he can maintain his manhood, but what will prevent the children that he can’t afford to feed?


Below is an article from The Atlantic.

It’s got some alarming information.

After you read it, let’s discuss why women’s mortality rates should concern you even if you do not live in the “red zone”. Continue reading Will the Affordable Care Act Address Rising Mortality Rates?

National Tragedy Can Cause Heart Failure Or A Firestorm Of Change

It’s a very sad day in the United States.Fresh Grave

Has your conscience been quickened?

I know mine has.

Your heart may ache, but it’s important to Stand In Truth while you process your emotions.

National tragedy can cause anyone to lose heart.  Stress and sorrow can weaken you, especially if you already have issues going on with your health.

Violence and loss are difficult to process.  Healing from or succumbing to heart failure has a lot to do with the way you process over whelming emotion.


Denying the truth won’t bring about change.

Are you hungry for change?

The video below is a wonderful message that calls each of us to hold ourselves accountable.

Please take 15 minutes to hear what needs to be said.

We talk a lot about solutions for heart disease here on Heart Failure Solutions.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan is a story about the most powerful Heart Failure Solution there has ever been or will ever be.

Your Loving Kindness blesses your life just as much as it blesses others.

Fifty years ago scientists proved that a small community in Rosetta Pennsylvania prevented the occurrence of HEART DISEASE in its citizens simply by LOVING each other!

They cared about each other.  They cooked for each other, they celebrated with each other and they listened to each others’ sorrows.

There was NO other explanation for their lack of suffering.  The citizens of Rosetta Pennsylvania just didn’t suffer from heart disease!

Rosetta Pennsylvania was a Village that knew how to BE a Village!

How Do Symptoms Of Heart Disease Destroy So Many People Financially?

Is Shortness of Breath a Concern or a Rational Response Trauma?

How Do You Deal With Other People’s Grief?

How do you deal with other people's grief?

Original source

How do you deal with grief that you don’t feel?

You can’t, can you?

If you don’t feel grief you can’t deal with it at all.

Perhaps you feel compassion for the families grieving lost loved ones in Connecticut this holiday season, and certainly this tragedy has caused us to grieve as a nation.

But do you wonder why some people act as though this has happened to them in some way?

Do you think, “My gosh!  At least it wasn’t your child.  Be grateful it wasn’t your child!”

Is it hard to fathom another person’s grief?

I have many friends who can’t help but feel the grief!  We all know what 6 years old looks like, and it tears our hearts out to picture such violence committed against such innocence.

Yet, getting this news, you almost can’t help but picture it.  If you love a six year old or a young one, you can’t help but picture them being hurt.

Do you avoid thinking about it and avoid all media?  Do you think positive thoughts of Peace?

The world NEEDS visionaries!  We really do!  So there is a lot to be said for putting your focus on what you Want, and Peace and Love.

Do you feel responsible for asking why guns with no purpose but to kill PEOPLE are legal?

Each citizen of the United States should feel a responsibility for caring for and protecting our children.  I think no matter what religion you site as your authority pretty much all will be in agreement that children should be cared for and protected.

Even if you have no religion, you likely have a soft spot for children.

Feelings of responsibility for preventing more senseless violence are not inappropriate.

Feelings Your Feelings Is Never A Problem.

Intense emotions of sorrow only feel like they will kill you.  If you just allow your feelings expression you can manage them.

However, when you disconnect from your feelings you are in BIG trouble.

The feelings you won’t express must be stuffed down inside you, and there they stay until they find expression or make you sick.

Feel your feelings and fill yourself full of Love and Joy.  Keep your focus there as much as possible to stay filled with Light!

When you can’t feel your feelings you are stuck!

Humor me here.

Will you try an exercise?

Picture yourself in the shoes of the mourning families effected by the tragedy a week ago today.

Stay in that heart space.  What would that feel like?

Now, listen to this song off Pink’s latest album.

If you participated in the exercise to the best of your ability, there are tears trickling down your cheeks.

It is not hard to feel the pain of others.  It really isn’t.

Their grief is not your grief, but we are undeniably connected to every other person on this planet.

We feel each others pain if we are open to feeling it!

You may wonder what good it does to feel pain that is not your burden to bare.

Compassion is an art form and you will get better at it the more you practice it.

When you pull away from painful emotion you shut down.  You can’t offer support to those who are suffering and you lose touch with your own feelings.

It is what it is … Grief Hurts.

The only thing we can do is be there for each other.  Just be present.  Whether tragedy occurs in another state or another country we are all effected.

You can’t get away from grief when the whole planet is heart broken.

The way to deal with other peoples grief is to stay present and speak words of comfort if you can.

If your neighbor is grieving, remember what they loved before the grief and reach out to them around a common interest.

You don’t have to keep mourning, you just have to stay present.

We are all in this together.

Being good to each other means being sensitive to each others feelings.

Start by being sensitive to your own and work outward from there.


Many BLESSings,
