Hook-up in the Spirit Realm 2010Prayer CalendarMay the Grace and Favor of God be upon you as we come together in the Spirit Realm under the Anointing and by the Power and Authority of God which He has placed within us.I pray that as we come together in prayer and fasting that we never lose sight of our main focus and goal, which is to offer ourselves to Him who sacrificed Himself for us.No doubt you will have your own personal prayer/worship time with the Father, but please attend to the request listed below on their respective days. This way we are uniting as one in the spirit realm and nothing shall be withheld from us.1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:1-4 (KJV)6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Gen 11:6 (KJV)December 31, 2009:I know our fast will not start until midnight tonight, but today should be a day of preparation in expectation of what is to come.We need to empty out our vessels, and release all that has transpired in our lives this year. Purpose in your hearts to release all the hurt and pains you experienced in 2009. Forgive all who have offended you this year. Forgive yourself for any trespasses you have committed.If this was a great year for you, rejoice and then let that go too. Don’t get stuck dwelling on what God has done, and miss what He is doing. Thank Him and let’s move on to the next testimony.We don’t want to mix the New Wine with the old wine.Prayer: Heavenly Father, we are so grateful for the ability to come boldly to your throne of Glory. We do not take the fact that we are your children and your servants lightly. Thank You for engrafting us into Your family. We understand that while all are Your creations, not all are Your children. Father we ask that you would forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespassed against us. Thank you for bringing us through every trial and tribulation this year. The fact that we have made it and are entering into a new year is a testimony to Your keeping power in our lives. Now Lord, we pour ourselves out before you that you may fill us anew with Your Holy Spirit. As we press into the New Year, we ask for a fresh anointing and renewed Spirit that we may walk worthy of the vocation to which we have been called. We thank you for all You have done and are filled with excitement for all that is manifesting now. To You be the Glory in all things in the matchless Name of Jesus the Christ. AMEN!January 1, 2010:Praise be unto God, we have entered into a new decade! Today is a day of worship. The only request today is the ability to praise Him with our whole being. Remember in the Old Testament before the battles, God commanded to Praisers to go forth.Fill your homes and your hearts with praise and worship today. It is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it!1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. 3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. 4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD. Psalms 150:1-6 (KJV)Prayer: Hallelujah! Lord God we offer up the highest praise to You. Father there is not enough words in our vocabulary to articulate how we feel about You. From the rising of the sun to the setting of the same, we praise You. From the depths of our souls to the deepest recesses’ of our minds, we praise You. For Your Love, Grace, Mercy, Joy, Peace and Favor, we praise You. For every breath we take, every move we make, we praise You. For You keeping and sustaining us, we praise You. For clothing us in our right minds and placing Your word in our hearts and mouths, we praise You. For raising up a standard against our enemy and being a bridge over troubled waters, we praise You. For the roof over our heads and the food we eat, we praise You. For being our victor, banner, healer, righteousness, provider, shepherd and Father, we praise You. For all that You have given us and all that You have held back, we praise You. Lord for Your shed blood on Calvary, we praise You. For forgiving all of our sins, we Praise You. For making the crooked way straight, we praise You. For endowing us with Your power and authority, we praise You. Because You are, we praise You, in Jesus Name, we pray that our praises are a sweet smelling savor in your nostrils. AMEN!January 2, 2010:Today we renew our minds in the Word of God. Part of pouring ourselves out before God is getting rid of all of our own preconceived notions of how things go.Romans 12:2 (The Message)1-2 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.Galatians 2:20 (The Message) 19-20What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn't work. So I quit being a "law man" so that I could be God's man. Christ's life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not "mine," but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that.One of the most important things Jesus taught us is the source of His power. He simply walked in obedience to the Father. That’s it, it is just that easy to walk in victory in every area of your life. We always want to come to God telling Him what we want and desire, instead, go to Him and ask Him what His will and desire is. Roman 8:28 tells us that all things work together for good for us who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. Just as Psalms 84:11 tells us that no good thing will He withhold from us.The reason Jesus was so confident that God the Father would back up anything He said or requested is because He merely gave voice to the Father’s will.John 5:19 (The Message) 19-20 So Jesus explained himself at length. "I'm telling you this straight. The Son can't independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does. The Father loves the Son and includes him in everything he is doing.John 5:30 (The Message) "I can't do a solitary thing on my own: I listen, then I decide. You can trust my decision because I'm not out to get my own way but only to carry out orders. If I were simply speaking on my own account, it would be an empty, self-serving witness.This is the mindset we must take on. I understand it is not easy giving up your will, but think about this. If God said no good thing would He withhold from us, then you should not want anything that does not come from Him. If you think back over your life and are honest with yourself, you know there are things you really wanted that turned out not to be good for you.Trust God and know He will lead you along the path which He created you for and that path is packed with blessings and benefits. Yield you mind, body and will to Him and allow Him to use you to impact the lives of others.Our prayer focus today is on salvation and direction in life.Prayer: Father God we as a united body of believers come before Your Throne of Mercy and Grace in submission to Your will for our lives. We are so grateful for Your Wisdom, Guidance and Direction in our affairs. Help us oh Lord to grow in wisdom and power as we constantly seek a grater revelation of Your will in every area of our lives. Our united desire is to serve You with our whole heart and to completely yield our minds, bodies and wills to You. Father we freely yield to Your commands and declare that our only choice is to obey Your directives. We command our will and our flesh to line up in obedience to Your orders. We acknowledge You as God Almighty, there is no greater Power in the Heavens or the Earth than You. You are Jehovah Elohim The Lord God which created the Heavens and the Earth and formed man in Your image and likeness out of the dust of the earth and breathed life into us.Father God we ask that the blinders be removed from our spiritual eyes that we may see clearly the plan You have for us. We ask that our spiritual ears be cleanse in order to clearly hear Your voice. Heighten our ability to discern Your voice from any others. Your Word tells us that we have been given the Holy Spirit to teach us all spiritual truths. We entreat the Holy Spirit to grant us a deeper understanding of Your Word. Reveal unto us its hidden treasures and mysteries. Father we long to connect with Your heart. Help us to see others as You see them, grant us Your compassion for the hurting. Use us as Your love offering to those considered unlovable as we once were.As we serve You, we release our families to You as well. We declare that our entire households are saved, sanctified, Holy Ghost filled and walking in Your favor. Every mother, father, sister, brother, spouse, son, daughter, grandchild and great grandchild are serving You with their whole heart. We plead the Blood of Jesus over them and decree no weapon formed against them shall prosper. We render every attack of the enemy against our families null and void and of no effect. Because we are Your servants, this is our heritage and we stand on Your word with the knowledge that it will not go out and return to You void but it must accomplish what You sent it to do.Father for every family member we stand in proxy for as well as those listed by name here, we are praying that the eyes of their understanding be enlightened and that they come into the knowledge and fullness of who You are. For those who have accepted You and ventured away from Your will for their lives, we call them back into the fold. We pray that they will discover their purpose in You and know their value and worth. We declare their soul salvation and clarity in their life’s purpose. Baptize them in the Holy Spirit and we lose Your ministering Angels to minister to their spirits wherever they may be. We declare this done for our families in 2010 and for ( Angelina Miranda’s children -Cindy, David, Ruben,) (Sharnell Jackson’s Nephews -Adrian, Stacy, Anthony, Davon, Corey,)(Pam’s dad Otto and sister Laura,) (Diana William’s children Starsha, Natasha, Tony,) Nakeya Belser, Isaish Foster, Robert Sparks, Mishima Jones Jr., Coy Sparks Sr., Richard Jackson’s Family, Sheila Cook’s son, Grace’s family, John Ercolano’s Family, Larry Moyler, Reginald Bolton Jr., Andre Bolton, LaRosa Bolton, Carmeletta’a four children, Tessa Governor’s family, and (Gayonna & her family -Mark(husband) Cabrisha (daughter) Jonathan(son)).Lord God we recognize Your desire is that all would be saved and none lost. We pray that You would use us to show the greatness of Your love to this hurting and dying world in Jesus’ Name AMEN!January 3, 2010:Today we stand up in the Power and Authority that has been given us. We look inward and seek to see ourselves as our Father God sees us. This is a time for boldness; we can’t take the Kingdom in a weak mediocre state of being. Let’s look at Matthew 11:12 (New International Version) 12From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and forceful men lay hold of it.Forceful men lay hold of it is what I want you to take hold of. We as the Body of Christ have been too reserved in the Spirit Realm. It is great to show love to your enemy in the natural, but when we go into the Spirit realm it is all out war.For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph 6:12 (KJV)Ephesians 6:10-12 (The Message) A Fight to the Finish10-12And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.It is time to awaken the sleeping giant within you! God has given you power and authority to use the keys of the Kingdom to keep the enemy under your feet. However all the power in the world means nothing if you don’t know you have it.The Father told us in Genesis 1:28 to take dominion over everything that moved upon the earth, therefore, we have dominion over the demons and imps which try to attack us and our family and the Body of Christ as a whole. We have been accepting what the enemy has been bringing to us, but no more! We have the power and dominion over him, not him over us!We need to stand up in the authority given us and stop allowing them to have their way in our lives. It is up to us, God gave us the keys to the Kingdom not the devil. …upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matt 16:18-19 (KJV)Again, because we don’t realize who we are in Him, we have thought we were not equipped to enlarge the Kingdom nor be victorious in battle. If you simply avail yourself to Him, He can and will work the miraculous in and through you. You will see both the physical and spiritual manifestation of the blind receiving their sight, the lame walking, the deaf hearing and the dead being raised to life.Jesus said “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” John 14:12-14 (KJV)He didn’t say the pastors or elders who believe, He said “he” meaning anyone who believes shall do greater works than He did. It is time to rise up and take our rightful place as the Sons of God. There should be an excitement in you because of the knowledge of who you are in God and the fact that because He dwells within you, VICTORY is inevitable.Romans 8:17 (The Message)15-17 This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?" God's Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are going to get what's coming to us—an unbelievable inheritance! We go through exactly what Christ goes through. If we go through the hard times with him, then we're certainly going to go through the good times with him!It is time to draw the line in the sand and tell the devil NO MORE. No more will we give him credit for what we can and can’t accomplish. No more will we give him accolades for the twist and turns of our lives. From now on, the only thing we will speak is what thus says the word of God.Proverbs 18:21 (The Message) 21 Words kill, words give life; they're either poison or fruit—you choose.It is time to declare you are the Head and not the tail, above only and not beneath. Ask God to show you how He sees you, and stand on the fact that you have been fearfully and wonderfully made with the ability to defeat the enemy at every turn.You are a might man/woman of God! Arise and take your position in the Kingdom!Our prayer focus today is for Ministries, Businesses and advancement in the Kingdom.Prayer: Oh Halleluiah Lord God! We come before you with excitement in our hearts knowing that we have been fearfully and wonderfully made by You. There is enormous Purpose and Destinies within us. We know You as our God and shall therefore do great exploits in Your Name. Father as we submit ourselves to You, we ask that You will fill us to the overflow with a fresh anointing. Empower us with the ability to Glorify You in a magnificent way. We recognize that every member of the Body of Christ has a call of purpose on their lives, be it fivefold ministry, gifts and talents for writing or singing or dance or business, all have something to supply in the Kingdom. We decree we shall use that which you have placed within us for the express purpose for advancing Your Kingdom. As it is in Heaven so be it in the Earth, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done.You are Jehovah Jireh, the Lord will provide, and not only do you provide, but You go before us and make the crooked way straight. Father God, thank you for giving provision for Your vision. Thank You for placing the right person in our paths to bring about a suddenly in our lives; thank you for equipping us with the knowledge needed to lead others in becoming Kingdom minded advancers. Thank you for financial breakthroughs to enable us to enlarge our territories and reach more and more people with Your Love and the Good News of reconciliation back to You through the blood of Jesus.Lord God we lift every House of Prayer which is open in Your name, and we speak Your Wisdom upon the person You have placed as overseer of the house. We pled the Blood of Jesus over them and call forth intercessors to stand in the gap for them. Father strengthen them with the ability to stand against the wiles of the devil. We come against the spirits of sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like which would entice the flesh to sin against You.We pray that they be clothed with Your whole armour of truth, righteousness, peace, faith, salvation and are armed with Your Word. We declare they walk upright flowing in the Fruit of the Spirit which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. We declare their desire will be to glorify You and not themselves. Give them a boldness to speak Your word in love and not empty words to just tickle the ears of the hearers.For the leaders in the Marketplace, we pray they walk upright in integrity dealing with their customers with honesty and fairness. Thank you for favor upon their business which enables them to enlarge their territories for the express purpose of enlarging the Kingdom. Grant the Kingdom business owners the wisdom and ability to raise up Kingdom Leaders who will sow into the lives of others.Father we acknowledge that everything belongs to You and we have been set as steward over Your Ministries and Businesses, therefore, we yield to your directive in the operations of that which You have given us charge over.We stand in agreement for every assignment You have given each of us to come into the full manifestation of Your intended purpose for it. We command the enemy to loose its hold on that which you have placed in our charge. We speak to our Ministries and Businesses and call forth finances, facilities, willing labors, materials, and favor to come upon them that they may be used as a testimony to Your Glory at work in our lives. Thank You for opening doors that no man can close, and for closing every opening the enemy is trying to use against us. Father we speak these things not only for ourselves but also for: Rev.

AMEN!January 4, 2010:Today we will build up our faith in the knowledge that God heals. In His Word, He has promised to heal our land, heal our hearts and heal our bodies.2 Chronicles 7:11-14 (New International Version)The LORD Appears to Solomon11 When Solomon had finished the temple of the LORD and the royal palace, and had succeeded in carrying out all he had in mind to do in the temple of the LORD and in his own palace, 12 the LORD appeared to him at night and said:"I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices.13 "When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land..God has now chosen our bodies as His temple for sacrifices. We are the Temple of the Holy Ghost because His Spirit dwells in us.Romans 12:1 (New International Version)1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship1 Corinthians 6:19 (New International Version)19Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;God is speaking to you today in the same way He spoke to Solomon. As His people who are called by His name, we must humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways which is what we are endeavoring to do daily. We know He has forgiven our sins because Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf. Because we have surrendered and submitted ourselves to Him, He has promised to hear our prayer and heal our land. This land encompasses not just physical dirt, but our bodies, families, emotions, minds and finances.Psalm 147:3 (New International Version)3 He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.This next section of Scriptures and notes where copied from Dan Downey’s website - 5:16 "Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed." NOTE - Even after Jesus had been crucified, rose back to life again, and ascended into heaven, we see the very same work that Jesus performed, while on the earth, still taking place through the hands of His disciples, and with the very same intensity - all being healed. And why not? Hebrews 13:8 tells us that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever!"Hebrews 7:25 Because Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant (verse 22), "Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." Take a look at this scripture in the Amplified Version: "Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them." NOTE - It's important to remember that the word "save" in the Greek is the word "sozo" which literally means to heal, preserve, save, do well, be (make) whole. It means deliverance in the present as well as in the future or in eternity, physical as well as spiritual. Jesus used this word to denote healing of the body as well as forgiveness of sins. Always translate this word as "save - heal" when you come across it in the Word. Now you know where we came up with the domain name for our website www.savedhealed.comRomans 8:11 "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal (Natural, Earthly) bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you." NOTE - Take a close look at this Scripture. This is talking about your body that you have now, not the one you're going to receive one day in heaven! Allow the Lord to impart His life into you by placing faith in His Word. Begin to praise Him for this promise.Matthew 6:9-10 "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven." NOTE - Jesus always prays the will of God, and He prays that the will of God be done here on the earth just as it is in heaven. People in heaven are not sick, so we can clearly see it is God's will that we also be free from sickness and disease.Deuteronomy 11:21 (If a believer honors God and lives according to the Word, He says...) "That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth." NOTE - God's plan is that His children begin to experience the inheritance of the heavenly life while here on the earth. We're already His children, and we have been given special rights. Learning to walk in the Word of God, brings the benefits of the Word of God into a living, functioning reality.Deuteronomy 7:15 "And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you." NOTE - If this was a promise to God's covenant people under the Old Covenant, how much more does this benefit of health pertain to us today; as we are under the New Covenant which is based upon the precious Blood of Jesus Christ!Romans 8:32 "He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?" NOTE - Surely this includes healing!!!Mark 16:17-18 "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." NOTE - Find someone who believes God's Word regarding healing and have them lay hands on you and pray for you in faith based on the promises of God. James 5:16 says "that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much."Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all."Jeremiah 30:17 "For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord."Isaiah 53:4-5 "Surely He hath borne our griefs (Hebrew: sicknesses) and carried our sorrows (Hebrew: pains) yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and by His stripes we are healed." NOTE - The last part of this verse, “by His stripes we are healed," is not talking about spiritual healing, as some have taught, but definite physical healing. God does not "heal" a human spirit, he recreates it. He does however, heal our bodies and minds. This clearly shows that your healing was paid for at the cross!Jeremiah 33:6 "Behold, I will bring you health and cure, and I will cure you, and will reveal unto you the abundance of peace and truth."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I pray these scriptures have caused your faith to rise in the area of healing. Just as John desired for Gaius in 3 John 1:2 God also desires for us to prosper and be in health, even as our soul prospers.James 5:13-15 (The Message)13-15 Are you hurting? Pray. Do you feel great? Sing. Are you sick? Call the church leaders together to pray and anoint you with oil in the name of the Master. Believing-prayer will heal you, and Jesus will put you on your feet. And if you've sinned, you'll be forgiven—healed inside and out.Our focus in prayer today is complete healing in our families, our minds, our emotions, our bodies and our relationships.Prayer: Heavenly Father thank you for loving us enough to make the greatest sacrifice imaginable by sacrificing Your beloved Son so that we might be reconciled back to You. You have proven to us time and again that Your love knows no boundaries when it comes to us, Your children. We are eternally grateful for Your loving kindness and tender mercies. Included in Your Grace for us is Your healing.Thank you for healing our sin sick souls that we can come boldly before Your throne of Grace and Mercy with thanksgiving and praise in our hearts. Father Your Word teaches us that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much. It also says if we come to you in agreement we shall have whatever we ask for. Thank you for building up our faith to believe all things are possible through and in You.Lord God we release all bitterness and unforgiveness that we are harboring against those who have hurt us in our past. Create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us. Lord forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.We have confidence that You hear us when we pray therefore as we petition You for the healing of our relationships, our emotions, our spirits, our minds and our bodies we decree it done. We do not limit You by telling You how to heal us, be it according to Your will how the manifestation takes place. We yield ourselves to You as a testimony to Your power working in and through us even as we eagerly await the materialization of our healing.Not only for us and our families do we seek your healing, but also for Tonya’s healing of a brain tumor; Charlotte Nicholson’s health; for Joe’s emotional loss of his mother; for Malene’s physical body, emotions and state of mind; Carmeletta’s neck & body; Susan who is battling cancer; Darlene’s mind and body; Michael Joyner’s kidneys, liver, digestion, eyesight & blood; Richard Halden’s lungs; Sherwin Xcel’s health; for Siara Mendez & Isaiah Mendez & Elijah Ambert’s healing; Rev. healing in her body; Grace’s total and complete healing including receiving all the organs to make her whole; Sharnell Jackson’s health; Angela’s physical and emotional healing; Faith, Tanya, Tracey, Charles and Xavier’s emotional healing after the loss of a love one; Diana Williams physical and emotional health; Jacalyn Becker healing from physical pain; Jonie Heinz of throat cancer, Markisha’s emotions and state of mind, Shalunda from multiple sclerosis; Doretha Greene & family for health; Alicia Cirino for health; Pastor Paul & Lady Keisha Greenleaf ‘s healing of their physical bodies; Ontajia Johnson’s emotional healing; Jon Davis healing in relationships; Carlton James healing from diabetes and its related ailments and Coylette James for healing in her joints.Father we have been freed from the curse of diseases and no unclean thing can reside in our temples, therefore diabetes, cancer, infections, heart disease, thyroid disease, crohn's disease, arthritis and any and every other physical attack that has been leveled against us we declare null and void and of no effect. Furthermore we cast every infirmity out of our bodies. We decree we and every person named in this prayer walks in divine heath in Jesus Name. AMEN!January 5, 2010:Today is our day of breakthrough! We are targeting every area of our lives including marriages, jobs and finances.The enemy has besieged our marriages jobs and finances for the express purpose to keep our focus off the things of God. If we allow ourselves to be consumed with the issues taking place in and around our lives then we leave ourselves open to abort our God ordained purpose and destiny. I know for some who may be babies in the faith, you thought when you got saved everything was supposed to just fall in place. The truth of the matter is that your hardships normally intensify the more you try and get things right. Let me make this real clear for you, you are going to be attacked, persecuted, lied on and lied to. And most likely the attacks are going to come at you from someone close to you. But fear not, God has a plan of escape from the enemy’s attack.James 1:2 (The Message)2-4 Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.John 16:33 (New International Version)33"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."Our affiliation with the Father has many facets. We are servant, child, soldier and witness to Him. In each of these relationships we play a different role. As servant, we are submitted to follow His every command. As His child we are joint heirs with Christ and have an incredible inheritance awaiting us. As a soldier, we are ordered to endure hardships and fight the good fight of faith. As a witness we speak on what we have seen and know to be fact of the signs and wonders manifested through Christ.There is purpose and destiny entwined with each of these associations with God. Each one is preparation for the next phase. What is very important to remember is that in the midst of each of these is the will of God at work in our lives. When we lose our focus, our connection with God’s will in our lives is lessened.God’s word has already prepared us for what is to come, so there should be no surprises when the attacks come. This is why it is so important that we study His word daily. You will not be equipped for victory by just going to church on Sunday and getting a quick Word. You must immerse yourself in the things of God.In order for true breakthrough to come about, you must seek God for His will in your situation. Vitally important that you seek God specifically for your circumstances and not just do what you saw someone else do. Then you must apply the word of God to your situation.Are you being tested in your marriage? Before you run to divorce court you had better check with God and find out His will for your marriage. It may be that it is the very thing that will draw you closer to God and cause you to put your trust in him to see you through. If you want to see breakthrough in your marriage give it over to God and decree His will be done in it. Remember your spouse is a soul in need of a savior and treat them accordingly. The same loving kindness you would show a stranger, show them. Just as God has forgiven you and holds nothing to your account that you have done wrong, do the same for your spouse. No matter what, let it go. See God as your everything and allow His love to envelop you and comfort you as you praise Him in spite of.Mark 10:9 (The Message)5-9 Jesus said, "Moses wrote this command only as a concession to your hardhearted ways. In the original creation, God made male and female to be together. Because of this, a man leaves father and mother, and in marriage he becomes one flesh with a woman—no longer two individuals, but forming a new unity. Because God created this organic union of the two sexes, no one should desecrate his art by cutting them apart."For those of you waiting on your mate, enjoy this time you have with God. His word says no good thing will He withhold from you. If your mate has not been presented to you yet, then they have not been transformed into a good thing yet. Don’t let your desire for marriage rob you of your blessings in the ability to freely serve God without hindrances. Please don’t misunderstand me, marriage is a wonderful thing instituted by God, but there are also specific blessings God has put in place to the single person too.1 Corinthians 7:8 (Amplified Bible)8But to the unmarried people and to the widows, I declare that it is well (good, advantageous, expedient, and wholesome) for them to remain [single] even as I doAre your co-workers a real pain? Love on them. The more they try and belittle you or set you up for failure, the more you go out of your way to be nice to them. Keep in mind you are not dependent on man for promotion in the world or in the Spirit.Matthew 5:44 (The Message)43-47 "You're familiar with the old written law, 'Love your friend,' and its unwritten companion, 'Hate your enemy.' I'm challenging that. I'm telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God does. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that.Psalms 75:6-7 (KJV) 6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.Financial struggles normally get the best of all of us. But if we stop and think about the fact that God is our source, we should not have the same struggles as the world in that respect. We are so busy chasing the things the world deems important that we have missed what God deems important. Please don’t misunderstand me, to desire nice things is not wrong, it is when that desire consumes you and becomes your focus in life that is the problem. Didn’t Jesus tell us in Matthew 6 not to worry about these mundane issues like the world does? If we keep our focus on God and that which he created us to do, then all these wonderful things that worldly people labor for will be added unto us. God has made His stance on the issue quite clear. Psalms 35:27 says God takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servants. Psalms 37:4 states that if you delight yourself in the Lord, He will give you the desires of your heart.We must change our mindset. The bible tells us in Romans 12:2 to be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. We have been so conditioned to think that everything we do is about getting ahead in life that we have neglected the purpose of our being. If God has opened a door for you to do a particular job in the work force, it is not about you getting ahead, it is about you shinning His light in the midst of where you are. If you have been blessed to own your own business, it is to be a blessing to other. It is to raise up Godly leaders. Are you starting to get the picture here, everything you do should be centered on the call of God upon your life. He will bless you as you go, but it is not about you obtaining all you can, it is about you pouring out all you can upon those around you.True breakthrough comes when we see our situation through God’s eyes. He is not worried, because He already knows the plan He has for you to prosper. Put your trust in Him, follow His directive and you can’t fail.Our focus in prayer today is to be led by the Spirit into true breakthrough.Prayer: Father God we continue in our quest of yielding ourselves to You. Thank You for the courage, strength and boldness to live our lives according to Your word. No longer will we yield to the annoying voices which try and lead us astray; all the neigh sayers who try and convince us that our situations are hopeless. We cancel every negative word that has been spoken over our lives, our marriages and over our finances. We declare we shall excel in every area of our lives.Thank you for the ability to tap into Your resurrection power. We speak life to that which was thought to be hopelessly dead. We decree our marriages shall not only live and not die, but that they shall prosper and be a blessing to others. The love between us and our spouses shall be a testimony of Your power at work within us.On our Jobs we shall shine Your light of hope, healing and love so brightly that many will desire a relationship with You. Through our willingness to share Your unconditional Love with our enemies we shall expand Your Kingdom. To Your Glory, the lost shall be saved.We shall continue to be steadfast, unmoving always abounding in Your work. And because we are Your servants and Your children, we rest assure that You are taking care of our every need. Lack is a thing of the past. Thank you not only for financial blessings, but also for Favor which can do what money can’t. Thank You Lord for blessing us to be a blessing to others.Collectively we declare we are breaking forth into a higher dimension in You. Our territories are enlarging, our barns and storehouses are filled to the overflow, Nations are calling us blessed and our children are walking in the manifestation of our blessings. We have been endowed to prosper. This is all to show the world the reward of those who diligently seek you.As we declare these things in our lives and that of our families, we also declare it for: Dwayne Conyers, Charlotte Nicholson & family, Nancy & family, Carmeletta & family, Wyomia Robinson, Dana Neal & family, Sharmaine Cartwright, Norma Patterson, Saundra Baylor, Tonja Williams & family, Ophelia Foster & family, Vernessa & family, Marilyn & family, Rafi P, Adrian Bellamy, A.

AMEN!January 6, 2010:Today is our day for clear direction for our assignments for 2010. By now, I believe your faith has been built up, and the eyes of your understanding should be open to hear what thus says the Lord.Today is not a day for many petitions to be put before Him, it is moreover a day to quietly sit before Him and listen. The scripture for today sums it all up:Jeremiah 33:3 (The Message)2-3"This is God's Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as God: 'Call to me and I will answer you. I'll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.'Make sure your keep your pad and pencil handy today, for the Lord God will speak to you. Except it, receive it, and implement that which He gives you.Prayer: Thank you Lord for Your willingness to share Your mysteries with us. Lord God we come humbly seeking Your guidance and direction for our lives. Where we have veered off tract, please correct us. If we have knowingly or unknowingly disobeyed You bring it to the forefront that we may repent of it and get it right. Now Lord we yield to Your voice and anxiously wait to hear from You, in Jesus Name. AMEN!January 7, 2010:Hallelujah you have made it! This is our last full day of consecration together. What an awesome time this has been. To be able to pour ourselves out as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God has been an incredible experience.Today is a day of reflection to ponder over all that has transpired this past week. As you reflect be sure and give God praise for what He has done. I know some of you have already seen the manifestation of our prayers the rest of us should be rejoicing in the knowing it is done.There will never be a time when you seek God with your whole being that He will not acknowledge you so give Him praise!That is our prayer focus today, simply to give Him praise.Prayer: Oh Lord, oh Lord how majestic are thy ways. Thank you for the strength to fast and pray an offer ourselves up to You. Thank you for all of the intercession on our behalf. Please give a special blessing to each intercessor who lifted us up this week. Thank you for encouraging our Spirits to soar higher in You. Thank you for direction and sense of purpose for our lives; Thank you for the soul salvation of our love ones; Thank you for Your healing touch upon us and those we have lifted up to You.Lord please continue to guide and direct our footsteps. For all those who have participated this week, wrap Your loving arms around them that they may know you are pleased with them. In Jesus Name we give you Praise because YOU ARE GOD ALMIGHTY AND BESIDES YOU THERE IS NONE OTHER. AMEN!

JUNIQUES MULTI CULTURAL CONNECTIONS ( WWW.JUSMCC.COM) IS PLEASED TO SHARE THIS INFORMATION.Yes it can done , Yes you can do this also!!We all have adversities. This young man succeed IN SPITE OF. You can too!!!Derrius won over $1 million in scholarships!Class of 2009 member Derrius Quarles was offered $755,000 in scholarships from nearly a dozen colleges, which he turned down. He accepted $355,000 additional offers and will attend Morehouse College this Fall. Morehouse College, Class of 2013 is the graduationCongratulations Derrius! Continue to make Kenwood Academy proud as you pursue your career in medicine
He recieved 1 Million Dollars in Scholarhip
Former foster child in Chicago now a million-dollar scholarstephanie bancheroBy Stephanie Banchero-- Derrius Quarles leans back in his seat and methodically debates Aristotle's theory of truth during freshman honors English class at Morehouse College.He strides across campus in a navy blue tailored suit and a bold red sweater handing out business cards that boast "Student/Entrepreneur/Leader."But behind the 19-year-old's dauntless appearance is a past that few on campus know.When Quarles was 5, the state took him away from his mother. He spent his childhood bouncing from home to home before ending up on his own at 17 in an apartment on Chicago's South Side.His arrival at a prestigious, historically African-American college -- with more than $1 million in scholarship offers -- is a story of inspiration and anguish. And it's a testament to his determination to prove that he is better than his beginnings."You can't go around thinking you are inferior just because you didn't have parents," he says. "For me, it's about knowing where you are from and accepting it, but more important, knowing where you are going."Despite his polished veneer, sometimes there are glimpses into a more complicated young man.In sociology class, when students discuss their childhood dependence on parents, the usually verbose Quarles withdraws from the lively discussion and doodles in a notebook. When a tutoring coordinator asks students about the "caring adults" in their lives, Quarles mumbles something about an aunt.He rarely talks about his childhood, but when pushed, the words tumble out."I've had people tell me that I ain't never gonna be s---. That's not a scratch, that cuts deep," he says. "After so many people put me down, I said, 'I'm gonna show you.' "Quarles made good on that promise when he won more than $1 million in scholarship offers, including a full ride at Morehouse. A graduate of Kenwood Academy High School in Chicago, he is one of about a dozen students nationwide to garner such a bounty, according to Mark Kantrowitz, who runs the Web site Finaid, which tracks college aid.He won full scholarships to five universities, the Gates Millennium Scholarship worth $160,000 and the Horatio Alger and Coca-Cola scholarships, each worth $20,000, to name a few. He'll use most of it to pay for advanced schooling.Now, Quarles hopes to weave a new family narrative at an all-male college known as much for molding brotherhood as for molding scholars.He is searching for a band of brothers who will not abandon him, as so many others have in the past.Left aloneWhen Quarles was 4, his father was stabbed to death with a pocketknife in a fight on a vacant lot. His mother struggled with drugs.Quarles doesn't remember much about those years, outside of being left alone with his brother for long stretches of time, pilfering bread and snacks from a convenience store."We had to fend for ourselves the best we knew how," he says. "My brother really stepped up as an older brother. He never left my side."This connection to his brother was a sustaining one. But it would not last.When Quarles was 5, officials placed him and his brother in a temporary foster home, then with an aunt.Quarles remembers this as a period of calm. He learned to read sitting in his aunt's lap, paging through her favorite Bible passages. He recalls eating around the dinner table with more food than he ever imagined.But when Quarles was 13, his older brother was removed from the home and placed in a foster home in Maywood. Quarles wanted to go with his brother and his aunt let him. State records simply show she was not interested in becoming his legal guardian. Quarles says he is not certain why his aunt let him leave and he would not provide her name."I'm content not to know," he says. "I'm sure it was a good reason."Quarles' brother left the foster home a few months later, one of the toughest losses of Quarles' life. "That's when I learned you can't trust people to stay around," he says. "That when I learned to lean on me."Three years later, Quarles was placed with his grandmother and an aunt in Chicago. But within a year, he convinced officials with the Department of Children and Family Services that he would be better off on his own.The high school junior packed his clothes, books and a set of golf clubs and moved to an apartment as part of a state transitional living program for foster children. There, he learned to budget his money, wash and dry his clothes, shop for groceries and cook. He received a small stipend and got a part-time job at a barbershop.At 17, he was living like an adult.Desmond Kemp, who became a mentor to Quarles -- a brother, really -- when they met at a tutoring program, initially opposed the move.But Kemp was impressed with how Quarles kept up the apartment and budgeted his money with such precision that he always had enough for fashionable clothes and textbooks.He was awed when he took Quarles to the grocery store and the teenager shunned the snack aisles and headed to the fresh fruits and vegetables."He kept saying, 'This is brain food. This is what I need to eat to build a strong brain,' " Kemp recalls. "I had to laugh but also stared in amazement at how mature he was for a teenager."Even though his home life was sometimes chaotic, Quarles brought home A's and B's in elementary school. That changed when he entered Kenwood Academy. First quarter of freshman year, he got an F and eked out only a 2.5 grade point average.Providence intervened in the form of a pushy biology teacher.Quarles had enrolled in a summer biology course but skipped the first day and was late for the second. Teacher Nivedita Nutakki pulled him into the hallway and told him he was wasting his talent."He needed a push and some encouragement," she says. "I spotted right away that this was a special kid who had a special mind."Quarles got an A in the class. Sophomore year, he earned a 3.6 grade point average. By junior year, he was carrying three advanced placement classes and earning straight A's."Initially, I was doing it to show my biology teacher that I could do it," he says. "But then it kind of moved into, 'I didn't have to show her anymore.' I was doing it to show myself."Quarles latched on to Nutakki and spent hours after school with her, engrossed in a subject that inspired him to want to be a doctor.He found other mentors who, together, played the role of parent.Lynda Parker, a Kenwood counselor, recounts how aggressively Quarles pursued college scholarships. He would stay late to use the school computer for research and pester Parker to complete his recommendation letters."With teenagers, the biggest motivator is the parent," Parker says. "Every step of the way, you have to contact the parents so they can push the kids. Not only did Derrius not have a parent to push him, he was pushing himself as hard, or harder, than parents of the other kids."Even his oversize ambition couldn't get Quarles past one roadblock. He dreamed of attending Harvard, until one college adviser told him his 28 ACT score was simply not high enough. He abandoned his plans.At a crossroadsNow, as he walks the red clay hills of the Morehouse campus, the training ground of Martin Luther King Jr., Quarles seems poised between who he was and who he wants to be.His dorm room looks like every other teenager's. The bed is mussed, the refrigerator and shelves are stacked with Doritos and Coke, and the focus of the room is the 32-inch flat-screen TV and Xbox he bought with his roommate.But inside Quarles' closet hang four suits and a half-dozen wrinkle-free dress shirts. In the corner sits an iron and ironing board.As a high school senior, Quarles Googled tips on business attire. Now, his belt color always matches his shoes, and his shirt sleeves are tailored to fall exactly halfway across his watch."How you dress says something to the world about who you think you are," he explains.Quarles' counselors, friends and teachers worry he is too eager to grow up."I keep telling him that everyone has a right to live as a child during their childhood years," Parker says.Still, Quarles keeps an ambitious list of goals: graduate from medical school, earn a doctorate, start a tutoring program for low-income Chicago students, help shape the city's public health policy, become the U.S. surgeon general."I have no time to play around," he says. "There are people back home in Chicago starving, homeless, unemployed, killing each other. There is a difference between enjoying life and wasting time, and I can't waste any time."I want to make a difference. I want to show people that I can be all those things people said I could never be."Quarles now has the means to pay for his education. And oversize optimism could get him the rest of the way.During a training session for a Morehouse tutoring program one day, students introduce themselves and list three songs on their iPod -- typically Kanye West, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Lou Rawls.When his turn comes, Quarles stands."Have you ever seen the movie 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory'?" he asks, prompting raised eyebrows. "There's a song in there called 'Pure Imagination.' That's what I'm listening to these days."Quarles later explains that the lyrics inspire him: "Anything you want to, do it. Want to change the world? There's nothing to it.""It's so powerful," he says. "It shows the power of imagination. If you imagine it, you can do it."

As someone who makes a living selling eBooks, let me tell you something that you need to know, but have yet to hear. There are two (just two) effective ways to sell eBooks (honestly most any digital content online). Before getting to the meat of this post, let me quickly say that most people don’t make money selling eBooks because they don’t do one f the two things I am going to mention. What they do (generally speaking) is slave over the eBook and the Cover and then put their book on a website, hoping that will be enough… but it’s not. In my opinion, the only people who make good money selling eBooks are people who have ‘fans’ and/or people who know how to market high-demand eBooks. I break this concept down in my eBook, ‘How to Really Make Money Coaching Online,’ but I can tell you what I mean right now. I personally did not start writing eBooks in the hopes to make money at it. I started writing eBooks, because people kept asking me how to market their businesses online and/or get into social networking. At that point I already had an audience, mainly because of the advice I shared on social networks and the articles I wrote in my blog. When the light bulb hit me, (that other people found value in my words) I started writing eBooks. If you have a lot to say or you love to write (writing is honestly the easy part). As soon my first eBooks were done, the started to sell quickly via my blog and my social network. How did they sell so quickly, without me spending any money on advertising? I already had a fan-base in the making between my social network, Black Business Women Online, and my blog. I already had people asking me for the information (many were waiting for me to create the right products for them). When you have an audience, it’s easier to get your eBook business off the grown. If no one knows you or follows you, its going to be hard to make any real money at selling eBooks. This is why I encourage you to learn more about blogging, social networking, and attracting customers. Every good internet marketer knows that you’ve got to have a growing fan-base if you want to have ever growing sales. If you want to get into selling eBooks to make money online think about your starting point. If you are into network marketing, or coaching, or some sort of industry in which you teach others (ie) Information Entrepreneurship AND if people take notice and stay connected with you, then you have an audience. In this kind of situation, creating an eBook makes perfect sense. It allows you to diversify your products, tap into new streams of income, and increase your credibility as an expert in your field. If you are practically invisible online you should start off by building your online presence and you can do this by:
  1. Learning How to Blog Online [more details]
  2. Learn How to Sell on Social Networks and Use Social Media Marketing to Increase Your Buzz [more details]
  3. Learn How to Drive Traffic to Your Website and Find Customers Online [more details]
The other big truth about selling eBooks is that if you don’t have a following, but you want to get into selling eBooks you should focus on writing about topics people are searching for. Every second of every day, people are desperately seeking out information online. Click here to read more about writing eBooks that Sell.

Happy New Year!

Greetings!I trust and hope that you had a wonderful holiday season. As we wind down this year and this decade I wanted to take a moment and wish you a Happy New Year.My business has grown by leaps and bounds despite rumors of a global "recession." ;-) I have made so many new friends and learned so much about business and about life in the past year as well.If you know me, you know that I love inspirational quotes. I found this one that I wanted to share:"The art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on." -Henry EllisThere are things that we will want to leave behind in 2009 and things that we will want to bring with us into 2010. Here are my parting tips for the ringing out the old and ringing in the new in business and in life:# Everything is energy. Be the energy that you would like to attract into your life.(The biggest part of the word attraction is action)# Be authentic. The world is craving what you've got to offer. Don't hold it back orwe'll never see it.# Never talk yourself out of taking action.# Stand in your prospects/customers/clients/friends' shoesWhat do you see?What do they need?# Factor in some fun. Life's too short to work so hard. Knock off early and take some time to hang out and enjoy your loved ones.So, as we bring this year to a close, I want to remind you to stay positive and take the time to encourage others who are also on a journey to improve their lives and the lives of those around them.May peace, happiness and prosperity be with you now and always.Happy New Year!

How To Start a Graduate School Essay?

Do you commence with a story?Do you begin with a reflection on the focus of your forthcoming graduate studies?Do you start at the beginning? And where exactly is that?If you want your graduate essay to grab the attention of the graduate admission representative, then keep reading this article…The graduate admissions committee is looking for a snapshot of you –Where you've been,Where you want to go, andWhat you want to do with the degreeHere are three simple tips to start your graduate essays:1.You should start with a concise academic history of about a paragraph in length.2.Then use up a paragraph talking about the research that you’ve done (or doing at the time).3.Then talk about why you wished to go to that school and your career goals and how that particular graduate program would help you meet those.The statement/essay is also where you would tackle any probable problems, such as an undergrad GPA below 3.0 or a misdemeanor conviction, etc. If you don't have those problems, great. If so, address them.That is about it really. Your graduate school essay should really just be a summary of your total application...except... you do want to stress how the graduate program fits into your career plans particularly. You will also want to draw attention to the types of research you want to do (or the type of project you want to do for your dissertation/thesis).When I was helping one of my friends writing graduate admissions essay this year, I divided the graduate essay into 3 parts:Past, Present, and Future.In our custom essays, we ask that it be a personal statement, not a story. Basically we ask them to address the following in their statement:Why a master's degree?Why graduate school now?What about your background has led you to this?You can still grab the attention of the reader by following these concepts. Try to talk conversationally, the way you wrote your question above. A little humor is OK, and you can certainly add in your accomplishments (although I assume they asked for a resume, and that will highlight those...)

Seven Pitfalls of Business Failure

Patricia Schaefer, Attard Communications, Inc., advises aspiring entrepreneurs that the latest statistics from the Small Business Administration (SBA) show that "two-thirds of new employer establishments survive at lease two years, and 44 percent survive at least four years." This is a far cry from the previous long-held belief that 50 percent of businesses fail in the first year and 95 percent fail within five years.Better success rates notwithstanding, a significant percentage of new businesses do fail. Expert opinions abound about what a business owner should and shouldn't do to keep a new business afloat in the perilous waters of the entrepreneurial sea. There are, however, key factors that -- if not avoided -- will be certain to weigh down a business and possibly sink it forevermore.1. You start your business for the wrong reasonsWould the sole reason you would be starting your own business be that you would want to make a lot of money? Do you think that if you had your own business that you'd have more time with your family? Or maybe that you wouldn't have to answer to anyone else? If so, you'd better think again.On the other hand, if you start your business for these reasons, you'll have a better chance at entrepreneurial success:You have a passion and love for what you'll be doing, and strongly believe -- based on educated study and investigation -- that your product or service would fulfill a real need in the marketplace.You are physically fit and possess the needed mental stamina to withstand potential challenges. Often overlooked, less-than-robust health has been responsible for more than a few bankruptcies.You have drive, determination, patience and a positive attitude. When others throw in the towel, you are more determined than ever.Failures don't defeat you. You learn from your mistakes, and use these lessons to succeed the next time around. Head, SBA economist, noted that studies of successful business owners showed they attributed much of their success to "building on earlier failures;" on using failures as a "learning process."You thrive on independence, and are skilled at taking charge when a creative or intelligent solution is needed. This is especially important when under strict time constraints.You like -- if not love -- your fellow man, and show this in your honesty, integrity, and interactions with others. You get along with and can deal with all different types of individuals.2. Poor ManagementMany a report on business failures cites poor management as the number one reason for failure. New business owners frequently lack relevant business and management expertise in areas such as finance, purchasing, selling, production, and hiring and managing employees. Unless they recognize what they don't do well, and seek help, business owners may soon face disaster. They must also be educated and alert to fraud, and put into place measures to avoid it.Neglect of a business can also be its downfall. Care must be taken to regularly study, organize, plan and control all activities of its operations. This includes the continuing study of market research and customer data, an area which may be more prone to disregard once a business has been established.A successful manager is also a good leader who creates a work climate that encourages productivity. He or she has a skill at hiring competent people, training them and is able to delegate. A good leader is also skilled at strategic thinking, able to make a vision a reality, and able to confront change, make transitions, and envision new possibilities for the future.3. Insufficient CapitalA common fatal mistake for many failed businesses is having insufficient operating funds. Business owners underestimate how much money is needed and they are forced to close before they even have had a fair chance to succeed. They also may have an unrealistic expectation of incoming revenues from sales.It is imperative to ascertain how much money your business will require; not only the costs of starting, but the costs of staying in business. It is important to take into consideration that many businesses take a year or two to get going. This means you will need enough funds to cover all costs until sales can eventually pay for these costs.4. Location, Location, LocationYour college professor was right -- location is critical to the success of your business. Whereas a good location may enable a struggling business to ultimately survive and thrive, a bad location could spell disaster to even the best-managed enterprise.Some factors to consider:Where your customers areTraffic, accessibility, parking and lightingLocation of competitorsCondition and safety of buildingLocal incentive programs for business start-ups in specific targeted areasThe history, community flavor and receptiveness to a new business at a prospective site5. Lack of PlanningAnyone who has ever been in charge of a successful major event knows that were it not for their careful, methodical, strategic planning -- and hard work -- success would not have followed. The same could be said of most business successes.It is critical for all businesses to have a business plan. Many small businesses fail because of fundamental shortcomings in their business planning. It must be realistic and based on accurate, current information and educated projections for the future.Components may include:Description of the business, vision, goals, and keys to successWork force needsPotential problems and solutionsFinancial: capital equipment and supply list, balance sheet, income statement and cash flow analysis, sales and expense forecastAnalysis of competitionMarketing, advertising and promotional activitiesBudgeting and managing company growthIn addition, most bankers request a business plan if you are seeking to secure addition capital for your company.6. OverexpansionA leading cause of business failure, overexpansion often happens when business owners confuse success with how fast they can expand their business. A focus on slow and steady growth is optimum. Many a bankruptcy has been caused by rapidly expanding companies.At the same time, you do not want to repress growth. Once you have an established solid customer base and a good cash flow, let your success help you set the right measured pace. Some indications that an expansion may be warranted include the inability to fill customer needs in a timely basis, and employees having difficulty keeping up with production demands.If expansion is warranted after careful review, research and analysis, identify what and who you need to add in order for your business to grow. Then with the right systems and people in place, you can focus on the growth of your business, not on doing everything in it yourself.7. No WebsiteSimply put, if you have a business today, you need a website. Period. At the very least, every business should have a professional looking and well-designed website that enables users to easily find out about their business and how to avail themselves of their products and services. Later, additional ways to generate revenue on the website can be added; i.e., selling ad space, drop-shipping products, or recommending affiliate products.Remember, if you don't have a website, you'll most likely be losing business to those that do. And make sure that website makes your business look good, not bad -- you want to increase revenues, not decrease them.When it comes to the success of any new business, you -- the business owner -- are ultimately the "secret" to your success.For many successful business owners, failure was never an option. Armed with drive, determination, and a positive mindset, these individuals view any setback as only an opportunity to learn and grow. Most self-made millionaires possess average intelligence.What sets them apart is their openness to new knowledge and their willingness to learn whatever it takes to succeed.There you have the pitfalls - what will set you apart in 2010?

Greetings Fellow Awakened MastersOh the slack! Oh the laziness of humanity! So many people are unwilling to do the healing work on themselves, daily. Surely this is because they have placed no value within themselves and think that the only thing worth investing into is material things. Material things fade away and even wealth doesn't mean nor does it guarantee happiness. Having a peace of mind is priceless. Do you have this peace when you go to sleep at night?Sometimes being psychic and clairvoyant is a sorrowful matter because one can see all the dark (heavy/negative) energy that is present in each individual one comes across. How do I express the importance of self development and self growth? It seems that so many are ruled by their fear and their pain. I don't think I have ever received so many emails from people looking for a quick fix to their problems. People need to be realistic and understand that if they have been dealing with certain issues all of their lives (20 or 30 years or more) that it is not going to go away over night.Ask yourself, do you even understand the fundamentals as to who you are? Some of you barely got the physical down - your health sucks! You eat poorly! You don't exercise! You have no idea how to communicate with God! You can't hear your Angels talking to you! You're clogged up emotionally and energetically! 8 out of 10 people that I work with have entities attached to them! 10 out of 10 women that I work with have haunted wombs which means entities are living inside of their wombs!DO I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION YET?You suffer because you choose to suffer. You refuse to take a look at yourself and get rid of the crap. How do you expect your life to change for the better if you are not even willing to put in the work? You think going to lectures, reading books, and watching "positive" movies or whatever is going to bring about the change you need in your life? Self development is no different than anything else in life - if you want something, then you HAVE TO WORK FOR IT!In just a few days, we are going to be in 2010. Are you where you need to be in your life? Are you fulfilling your life's purpose? Are you living out your passions? Do you even know who you are? Are you happy with yourself? Listen up people, the Winter season is a time for reflection and getting it together. Whatever you should choose to do to get your life together - stay CONSISTENT with it. Press your way and when you feel too tired to continue or you think you don't have what it takes - ask yourself, "how bad do you want change?"Eternalkween's slogan is:LEARN - the truth to who you are in your totality.IMPLEMENT - that knowledge in your daily living.DEVELOP - yourself so that you can reach your highest human potential.The planet is going through an evolution and not only raising Her vibrational frequency, but she is now housing NEW energies. In order for you to sustain yourself, you MUST be able to hold the energy of the planet within your bodies. People who have health issues and have not resolved them will get worse. You must know that you are truly a spiritual being having a human experience and Life wants to bring about a change so amazing. Life wants to elevate the human conscious to such an extent that you won't have to experience sorrow anymore.You can never and will never stand in your power so long as you house dark energy. You can only hold so much positive energy as your body will allow. You will have partial experiences or glimpses of Light so to say if you are partial with your self healing.!!!NEWS FLASH TO THE WEED HEADS!!!That weed (ganja, marijuana, dank, etc.) ain't gonna give you that spiritual experience that you are looking for. It will confuse you and zaps the energy from your body organs, depleting them. It even prematurely opens up certain energy centers and interferes with your development. Don't you think it is time you cleaned your lungs out? What about your brain? Surely you know all the toxins from this is going to the lungs and the brain. Weed Heads = limited spiritual growth and development.In closing, ladies - you hold the power of the planet in your wombs. You hold and choose the tone for your home, in your wombs. Everything in your life is determined by what resides within your wombs - which is your foundation. You can do vaginal steam baths or sitz baths, drink Donq Quai tea 2xs a day, reprogram your reproductive organs, clean the vaginal walls energetically and even talk to it to get it to re-tighten. You are not even using your power and you are disconnected from Mama Earth. Do yourself and your family and/or your mate a favor and sign up for Womb Wellness Online. Your mate can feel all your crap when he enters your womb and too a great extent he shares in harboring all of that negativity.Weekly Exercise:Since I have seen so much dark energy during my travels.. We got a new one for you:Visualize, see, feel your body with double doors on the front of it. Visualize the Light of God (looks like a bright light - imagine the color of a lightning bolt) directly in front of you.The double doors of your body are open to the light. When you inhale, you see and feel this Light coming into your body from God and the doors close to hold in the Light energy. When you exhale you see the double doors of your body open and all the dark energy leaves your body and goes into the Light of God. Do this for 15 minutes.Classes, Lectures, WorkshopsALL NEW!
