OCULAR AURA MIGRAINES

IMG_20180529_194100Ocular Aura Migraine can often cause unnecessary headache pain to some of the sufferers. This type of migraine is linked to eyes seeing crystal floaters full of rainbow colours from the peripheral vision. Opticians advise people to seek medical advise because there could be a vision problem associated with the eyes requiring further tests for diagnosis. An ocular migraine starts with discomfort as floaters move around eyeball corner.IMG_20180529_194919 It starts small then forms jagged zigzag semi-circle like shape around the edges of the eye balls. When the head turned, the floaters move on along peripheral visions and becomes bigger. The colours floating in waving motion feel irritating. Some people feel dizzy and nauseous at the same time as ocular migraine takes place between 6 minutes to 45 minutes. Its a common symptom called an “aura” or scintillating scotoma.” Migraines can be mild or the worst, a couple of hours. It interesting to see migraine aura in the bright colour moving up and down. The best thing is having to ride out or sitting quietly with eyes closed. Better to stop if on-screen at the time or on phone or on computer, gadgets linked to any kind of radiation on yourself. Blinking determines visual distortion if present or identical in both eyes. It is so surprising that it originates from brain rather than eye optic nerve. The visual distortion drawn from peripheral vision helps describe symptom colours directly to opticians when seeking help for your treatment. Keep in mind it is important to understand the scientific process that enables research. If prone to migraines prepare in advance the best knowledge of people’s description for an individual specific depiction seen. The semi-circle diagram of the jagged half-circle spiral effect starts small and grows to take up half a field of vision. It moves up and down rendered as an animated GIF of transparent shimmery essence.

Absolutely fascinating rainbow colours sometimes without migraine headache. Human brain functions in this specific structure like crescent a spiral typically seen. Pointy jagged shapes of uniform coloured zigzag curves. Ocular occipital cortex is fantastic. People find variety of unique colours or clear crystal ones that are documented subject to experience. Some are artistic, exciting and reliable with consistent patterns repeated by the mind and senses useful for diagnosis. It occurs to many people anytime or place discussed in books, online blog. Aura art in galleries titled Illustration of Visual Migraine Aura by physician Hubert Airy in 1870, Migraine Aura Foundation.

Remember if you find yourself suddenly in pain suffering from ocular migraine go to see a doctor. Opticians tell people to sit down, have a break and rest, drink lots of water for improving circulation. Call and see your GP for eye treatment. Many remedies recommend mixture of Himalayan salt with lemon juice among others. Be sure to see doctor first before you try homemade remedy. A migraine auras visual sensation prior to scotoma migraine headache symptoms include: coloured light visions, flashing lights or zigzagging in vision. Auras preceding migraine headache lasts 20-30 minutes before headache begins. Is determined from other causes of photopsia flashes by an eye examination.

Ensure that you eat, sleep, rest, hydrate the body well and drink water then see your doctor and the optician to check you thoroughly. Through further tests and using scans or resources for any other health issues. There can also be underlying health matters you may be unaware of and so do not try to self medicate at home. Get professional help and be safe than sorry.  At times, ocular migraine disappear after a while resting and drinking water. Most floaters are small flecks of a protein called collagen. They’re part of a gel-like substance in the back of your eye called the vitreous. As you age, the protein fibers that make up the vitreous shrink down to little shreds clumped together. The shadows they cast on retina floaters and flashes affect the eyes so look after your eyes. Floaters are more common than flashes, look like small dark spots or the strands that appear to float in front of the eyes. IMG_20180530_090824Floaters are treated in various ways and eye floaters laser treatment, symptoms, causes, about your vision. Eye floaters can be clumpy or stringy; light or dark. They are caused by clumps or specks of the undissolved vitreous gel material floating in the dissolved gel-like fluid vitreous in back of the eye cast shadows on retina when light enters eye. Facts about floaters are provided by National Eye Institute. Information is developed by the National Eye Institute to help the patients and their families search for general information on eye conditions.  They may look like black or gray specks, strings, or cobwebs that drift about when you move your eyes and appear to dart away when you try to look at them directly. Most eye floaters are caused by age-related changes that occur as jelly-like substance vitreous inside your eyes becomes more liquid.

Frequent aura migraine is believed to be due to electrical wave crossing the part of your brain procedures signaling from senses. Migraine frequently runs in families begin in childhood, worsen through teenage years. More boys than girls have migraine, more adult women than men have them. Gradually, gets fewer and less typical after age 50. The symptoms of migraine Aura in third of people get alert sign hours, days before migraine prodrome pre-headache stage:IMG_20180530_113059

  • Have food yearnings.
  • Get “hyper” or cranky.
  • Be fatigued and yawn more.
  • Feel stiff, especially your neck.
  • Need to urinate more often.
  • Get constipated or have diarrhea.

Auras often start about an hour before headache. They aren’t distorted vision, so can impact any of your senses.

Enjoy small things in life for when you are dead your tears will flow But loved ones won’t know *Cry now instead! *You will send flowers But won’t see it *Send them now instead!* You’ll say words of praise But they won’t hear. *Praise them now instead!* You’ll forget faults. But will not know, so forgive and *Forget now instead* You’ll miss them But they won’t feel the love so *Miss them now instead.* You will wish You could have spent more time with them *Spend it now instead!* You will wish You could have spent all your money on me. *Spend it now instead!!!* When you hear loved one is gone, you’ll find your way to their home to pay your condolence but did not speak in years. *Please look for them now!!!* Spend the time with every person around you help make them happy while alive before it is too late to show your love!!! 8461-grief-ptsd-trauma-mourning-mdLovingkindness to families, friends, acquaintances, colleagues is important. *Make them feel Special. Because you never know when time will take them away from you forever’* Life is to build each other up. *Life is too short. *Love all and Forgive all.* Funerals costs lots more expenses that go along with it, in many instances cost quite considerable. Family decides to be quite extravagant with planning to “prove their love or status of the deceased. What you need to keep in mind is that you don’t have to spend lots of money to prove how much you cared about someone. It is better simply to do something profound to ensure the commemoration reflects beautifully of who they are. Deceased in other parts of the world go through ritual in Indonesia community. They dig up deceased, clean corpses and dress them up in favourite clothes to parade them around streets.Torajan islanders pay their respects to the dead in the Ma’neme festivalThis ritual is to remember loved ones. It looks like scene from zombie movie, but every three years Torajan islanders pay respects to the dead in Ma’neme festival which is their celebration of life ritual, which translates, Ceremony of Cleaning Corpses. Their dead exhumed, groomed, dressed in new clothes goes on for more than century. Trend set by the Animal hunter Pong Rumasek who discovered a corpse abandoned decaying under tree as he hunted in mountains, felt blessed with good fortune for dressing corpse in his clothes and given proper burial. The bizarre ritual is to remember loved ones Torajan islanders pay respects to dead in Ma’neme festival adopted as people led to believe spirits rewards them for taking care of dead. Deceased’s coffin is replaced or fixed while relatives parade them around streets, following a path of straight lines. Its thought paths connect with Hyang, a supernatural power that only moves in straight lines. The funeral is seen as one of the most important and expensive events in calendar. And some Torajans save money for entire lives for decent send off ‘Puya’ ceremony lasting several days with slaughter of buffaloes, pigs to ensure peaceful afterlife. A man buried abandoned corpse so the society exhumes their already buried relatives to copy his good deeds for reward from spirit? Why not show the living love and care while they are alive instead of now disturbing corpses in graves every three years? How about disease and infection digging up grave. Let dead rest in peace and use resources on living people.

LIGHTNING THUNDERSTORM

Lightning over Leighton BuzzardFrom God’s throne room in the heavens proceeds lightnings, thundering, voices. God is in control of clouds as scriptures relates in Revelation 4:3 in Bible. These lightning thunderstorms are all part of 7 thunders sealed by Daniel for these endtimes. Lightning, and the rumblings, thunderstorms occurred rapidly at a rate of thundering sounds unheard and unseen before. Lightnings and rumbling thunderstorms often precede presence of God. The loud sound echo announces warning to people to get ready, prepare to encounter God. Priests announce the time, place, moment to meet in advancd and to help sanctify themselves ready to welcome God’s Presence. They prepare to meet God to receive instructions, directions followed by the given special covenant agreement. Endtime lightenings and the thunderstorm is specifically preserved for the modern generations sealed until now. Thunderstorms occur in response to national issues God often uses to call attention with regard to their covenant agreement and remind all the nations. People remarked they had “never seen a storm quite like this” and said flashes were “stunning” as it happened in UK.The sky over Hayling Island, off the south coast of EnglandDramatic and purple sky photographed over Hayling Island, off the south coast of England near Portsmouth, in the UK as thunderstorms moved northwards across the mainland. Many people got out their cameras to photograph and video Saturday night’s electrical storm, called “utterly insane” and “like being under strobe light.” The thunderstorms and torrential rain swept across parts of southern Britain with lightning flashing across sky. About 15,000 to 20 thousand lightning strikes recorded in four hours on Saturday night, BBC Weather said. It was the purple sky that confounded the people above all having never seen the sky turn completly purple. Visual colour was intensified by a strong trumpetlike relentless thunderings unheard before. So intense people called the emergency lines to report the strange sounds heard from heaven. Thundering concentrated from one direction, clearly heard. Lightning across the sky at Swiss Farm touring and campingA caravan at a campsite in Henley-on-Thames when heavy rain and lightning storm struck. Lightning turned the sky purple over Leighton Buzzard and also in London. The BBC Weather presenter Tomasz Schafernaker called it “mother of all thunderstorms” as he watched it over London. “Oh boy! This is utterly insane” he said. “I’ve never seen a storm with such frequent lightning in my life I don’t think. Mostly sheet lightning and loud flashes spectacular.”Most people listen to weather forecasts for reports on weather and looking for scientific explanations taught in school. However, not many people are aware of Biblical sources of meaning of lightning of these thunderstorms. In the West Wellow, of Hampshire’s is impressive photograph including picture produced by storm. Lightning in West Wellow

Forecaster Gemma Plumb, from the BBC Weather, said that as the storms pushed northwards across England on Sunday, more would be coming up over English Channel from the continent. Stansted Airport reported the delays to flights on Sunday morning after a lightning strike briefly left their aircraft fuelling system “unavailable.” Lightening at times also strike planes if in the red zone path of lightning or thunder the flight therefore is cancelled until storm calms down. So  Met Office issued yellow warning for a heavy rain and flooding across Wales and most of England. Lightning above Canary WharfThe purple thunder and lightening was seen in this scene above Canary Wharf in London. Later in the morning, storms brought more than an inch of rain to parts of Wales and the Midlands in just an hour. Parts of Wales and central and southern England could see further thunderstorms on both Sunday and bank holiday Monday, with the Met Office warning of possibility of power cuts, delays to trains and buses. People are advised to take notice to prepare against unforeseen changes to keep safe and warm. These rapid changes are part of climatic weather conditions taking place globally. Floods are taking place in deserts and snows falling in dry lands. Earthquakes are rampart than before as the world faces changes in weather patterns due to the man-made desires to control weather and clouds plus demands for fossil fuels increases. lightning illuminating the sky over the Southbank on the River Thames in LondonBolts of lightning flash across the sky over the River Thames in this photo taken by RNLI late on Saturday night.

They were asking people to use the app but it isn’t working, so they have now stopped doing announcement.” Ryanair were unable to say how many of its flights had been affected. It said customers can get a full refund or free transfer. “We apologise to all customers affected by these disruptions, which are entirely beyond control.

It added that fast-flowing or deep floodwater was possible with damage to some buildings from flooding, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds. It comes after a warm Saturday, with top temperature of 27.3C in Hurn, Dorset. The best way to get news on the weather is check and update yourself. So thousands of passengers were stuck at Stansted airport on Sunday morning after a major thunderstorm caused flights delayed, diverted cancelled. The airport was brought to partial standstill after the storm which battered the UK with up to 20,000 bolts of lightning and left hundreds of homes without power – hit a refuelling depot. People were stuck on stationary planes for hours and some complained they were not given proper explanations for the delays or provided with refreshments. One passenger called the situation a “North Korea-esque” information blackout.West DorsetThe lightning flashes is photographed bolts near the village of Broadwindsor in Dorset. Due to an earlier lightning strike, the aircraft fuelling system was unavailable for a period this morning,” said a spokesperson. “Engineers have been on site and have now restored the system. However flights may still be subject to diversion, delay, cancellation. We apologise for the inconvenience and advise all passengers to check with their airlines for their latest flight updates.”@samueltwilkinson of lightning over The Shard in central London on SaturdayLong strike of lightning dwarfs London Shard, which stands at 310m. We have been on the plane since 7.45,” said Guy Parker, who is on his way to Ibiza. “It’s just being refuelled now. It’s just going take a long time. The 6.05 next to us is just being refuelled so there’s obviously a very long queue. “In the airport it was just normal: we didn’t realise there was a problem until we were on the plane. Some people got very cross they were allowed on to the plane without being told.” Scenes in the terminal described as “stoically British” as queues of more than a thousand people stretched across the airport. Guardian Today: headlines, the analysis the debates. Others claimed Ryanair, one of the principal airlines at Stansted operating with staff shortages appeared to leave them poorly placed to manage the chaos. “They’ve clearly not got the customer service in place to offer people other options,” said Jack Dadds, whose flight to Brittany was cancelled. “All their flight desks are closed and there is just one small customer service desk with two or three staff. They were asking people to use app but it isn’t working, so they have now stopped doing announcement.”Lightning strikes above Wembley Stadium in LondonLightning strikes at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday night, Fulham beat Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final earlier in day. Ryanair were unable to say how many of its flights affected.

Passengers seeking a bank holiday getaway were forced to wait, hundreds of homes across the south of country left without power after humid bank holiday weather broke late on Saturday night. Heavy thunderstorms continue to affect parts of Wales, southern and central England through Sunday and into Monday morning, the Met Office said. It issued a yellow flood warning after torrential rain poured down overnight with more than an inch of rain falling within an hour on parts of Wales and the Midlands, causing power cuts and delays to trains and buses that are expected to persist throughout day.TredegarThe cloudy sky was lit up in purple as lightning struck Tredega in the south Wales. Severe weather warning for parts of UK temperatures soar. The motorists in West Midlands and in the Bedfordshire area warned of the risks of driving on flood-hit roads and 17 alerts issued for parts of the Thames valley. Nearly 1,000 properties were left without power across the Midlands, with the majority of outages due to lightning. Birmingham neighbourhoods flooded after these heavy rainfalls and the thunderstorms swept through the region In Warwickshire, fire service said five properties struck by lightning, while in Dawlish, Devon, a telephone box burst into flames after a BT pole was hit. As the storm progressed, people across the capital and southern England posted images of lightning on Twitter and Instagram.LondonHundreds of people in London took out cameras to snap these lightning storms, including in Plaistow, in the east of the capital. The Met Office meteorologist Charlie Powell said there somewhere between 15,000 and the 20,000 strikes across the UK overnight. “Temperatures overnight did not fall much below 15C (59F) or 16C: for the end of May that’s a pretty hot and humid night, everything was primed,” he said. “We had some storms coming in from northern France and some building up in the Channel and they sort of spread out and have been working their way in. It looks like there was one huge area of thundery showers that worked across London just before midnight.” The London fire brigade said it had taken 505 weather-related calls overnight, although the majority related to flooding, no callers reported fires started by lighting strike.Lightning in GravesendThis picture is from Gravesend in Kent.

Just as lightnings and rumbling thunderstorms precede God’s presence before meeting HIS people on the mountain or Elijah in cave of Adullam hidden, God again uses endtime sealed lightnings, thunderings to forewarn imminent return of Jesus in Rapture and later the Second Coming on earth. Loud lightnings and thunderings plus voices will accompany the trumpet sounds to herald coming of Jesus in the Rapture in clouds. Lightening and such thunderings will usher in Christ return to earth. So part of endtime signs from God warning all the people everywhere to repent according to Acts 17. It is not God’s wish anyone perishes as global events confirm endtime draws near although only God knows the time.  Bolts of lightning illuminate the skies over Worcestershire  [Jan Sedlacek / SWNS.com]

BE SAFE DURING THUNDERSTORMS

Thunderbolts and lighting can be very frightening. But don’t worry, there are things you can do to ensure that you, your family and pets stay safe until the storm passes. Stay indoors away from windows. Close all doors and windows, lock cat flaps to keep pets furry friends inside. Avoid bathing, showering switch off electrical appliances electrical storm can create power surges. After forecast, cancel outdoor activities, like golf and fishing trips as metal rods can conduct electricity.

.

If outdoors and cannot get inside ensure you won’t be at risk of lightning strikes. The first to do is find if there’s actually a risk. Wait to see lightning bolt the count seconds until you hear thunderclap if less than 30 seconds could be at risk. If you can, take shelter in car, windows closed. Sheds and isolated trees are not good covers. If swimming or in a boat, get to shore as quickly as possible, as water can conduct electricity.

People crouching under an umbrella

Thunderstorms battering parts of UK since Saturday. Stay low on ground If outside with no car or house to shelter in find low spot away from trees, fences and poles, telephone or metal poles. If skin starts to tingle or your hair stands on end, lightning about to strike. Crouch down, balance on the balls of your feet. Place your hands on your knees and tuck head down between them. This is called “lightning crouch,” it makes you the smallest target possible, minimising contact with ground. If in group spread out, staying in a huddle can let lighting to travel from person to person.

The map shows forecast for UK weather in pictures with dramatic lightning bolts strikes Britain on Sunday, May 27, 2018. Thousands of bolts of lightning Britain in a spectacular thunderstorm. Do not put up an umbrella or use your phone – anything with metal directs electricity into the body. If someone has been hit by lightning, call for urgent help. It is ok to touch them – they won’t carry any electrical charge – so you can perform CPR if you know how. Once the storm has passed, give it half an hour or so before you venture out, as lightning can strike up to 10 miles away from the centre of the storm so a few bolts could still hit. The common saying “lightning never strikes the same place twice” is a myth. It can strike the same place twice and some experts believe it is highly likely.  Don’t be too worried as chances of being struck by lightning are about one in 300,000. Stay safe and turn any mirrors around and Jeep water on you.

AVOID INDOOR POLLUTIONS

human-health-and-indoor-air-pollutionThe indoor generation when surveyed, in the key countries across Europe and North America estimated they spend 66 percent of their time inside. But further studies shows average person spends a whopping 90 percent of their time between four walls. The truth is most of us don’t even realize that all that time indoors has a detrimental effect on our health, well-being, similar to poor diet or lack of exercise. Also unaware that pollution is often worse indoors than outdoors. The poor air quality in our homes, our offices and our schools is associated with costly health problems like asthma, respiratory disease, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Spending most time indoors means not getting enough daylight, leads to lower brain function, sleep quality, mood, productivity. Where pollution really counts is within phrase “air pollution” brings to mind images of a factory belching smoke into the air or smog clouding a city skyline. But the air inside our homes and buildings can be up to five times more polluted than air outdoors. According to YouGov survey, nearly 80 percent of people don’t know this. But how does the air indoors get so bad? Air indoors is basically the same as outside air, with added pollution from all the materials around us. Anything from paint and cleaning products, to furniture and upholstery, to plastic toys and carpets, can trap dust and become a pollutant. Children’s bedrooms are the most polluted rooms in the house. We have gone from being outdoor species to spending most of our time in dim, dark caves.” Russell Foster, Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology, OxfordHealth-Effects-of-PM2.5-and-PM10-768x576

Do you often cook, burn candles or dry clothes indoors? Each of these adds even more impurities. Moisture leads to mold and mildew, and their fungal spores contaminate the air. Spending so much time indoors also cuts us off from natural light. As a species, we evolved to need daylight. “From the year 1800 to 2000, we’ve moved from 90 percent of people working outside to less than 20 percent,” says Russell Foster, the head, Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology and Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute at the University of Oxford. We have gone from being outdoor species to spending most of our time in dim, dark caves.” On average, an employee spends just 15 minutes outdoors during the workday, found the Munich-based chronobiologist Till Roenneberg in a survey of several thousand people. Lack of daylight disrupts bodies’ circadian rhythms, the 24-hour cycles that tell our bodies when to be awake and when to be asleep. If these rhythms frequently interrupted sleep the quality and brain function and general health suffer. Life indoors means indoor air quality affects physically, psychologically increasing the incidences of asthma, respiratory disease, heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. People in damp or moldy homes are 40 percent likely to have asthma. Asthma costs U.S. economy more than $80 billion per year. Indoor air pollution cause short-term problems like coughs, headaches, sore throats and eye irritation. The light inside your home or office may not seem dim to you because the amount of light we need to see is much less than amount our circadian clocks need. Typical indoor light levels are about 300 to 500 lux. Just sitting by a window gives you around 3,000 lux. Outside levels of light range from about 10,000 to 100,000 lux: enough to regulate your circadian clock in just 30 minutes of exposure. Simply put, the intensity of light we think we feel comfortable with is one-half and sometimes one-third the level our body needs to be healthy.Sources-of-Air-Pollution-768x576

“Light is an acute stimulant that directly alerts brain.” Steven Lockley, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School. The circadian clock is crucial so our bodies and minds to function at top condition, and it needs daylight. Lack of daylight disrupts sleep, which in turn makes us less productive, less able to learn and more prone to mistakes. Our dim indoor light makes us moody, and, in 5 percent of people, cause Seasonal Affective Disorder, with the percentage increasing in higher latitudes. Increased daylight in the classrooms improves students’ math test results by as much as 15 percent. Office workers with a good view out their window perform 10 to 25 percent better on tests of mental function and memory than those with no view. Light’s acute stimulant directly alerts brain,” says Steven Lockley, a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Take action for a healthier   indoor space. Fortunately, there are some quick and relatively easy solutions to maximize exposure to daylight and minimize the air pollutants at home and the office. What you can do to reduce the harmful effects of indoor living:

  • Take opportunities to go outside every day.
  • Get plenty of natural daylight during the day and sleep in complete darkness to respect the circadian rhythm.
  • Let in fresh air at least three or four times a day.
  • Limit sources of moisture — for example, keep the bathroom door closed while showering and turn on the fan or open a window.
  • Have a carpet-free house or clean your carpets frequently.
  • When cooking, turn on the hood fan and open the windows.
  • Dry clothes outside if possible.
  • Avoid burning candles.
  • Clean regularly.
Research reveals we cannot ignore the health of our indoor domestic or public spaces.” Says Peter Foldbjerg, Head of Daylight Energy and Indoor Climate at Velux, generally, we can also rethink building design and architecture, prioritizing daylight and fresh air. Using sustainable materials, designing wider windows and placing most frequently used rooms in locations with south-facing windows maximizes daylight exposure. Research shows that there’s a big disconnect between how we are living and reality. Awareness is the first step to addressing the effects of our indoor lifestyle.

INTIMATE ROYAL MARRIAGE

370223God’s incredible favour, honour and the privilege for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family since engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding on Saturday sums up Christianity. The royal wedding is compared to marriage of Lamb of God. Clement Ngissah wrote “Meghan Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry and who she becomes” to explain the believer’s important connection to Jesus always and favour of imputation of His righteousness attained thereby. Some of the lessons learnt from Meghan Markle’s lifestory is similar to how Jesus imputes His righteousness on believers. To qualify to enter His Eternal Kingdom Christian believers accepts Jesus’ Love proposal as the Bridegroom to become born again in similar fashion, Meghan Markle takes Prince Harry’s royal status so whenever with him all blood royalty below the Prince’s rank and status bow and curtsy to her although she is not a royal by blood or Princess Meghan. YeShe was not British or Royal by birth. She is an American. Her parents got divorced when she was six years old. Her father is Caucasian and her mother an African-American. She is half black and half white. She is a divorcee. She married her first husband, an actor and producer Trevor Engelson in September 2011 got divorced in August 2013. And she featured in movies in underwear sometimes showing what evangelicals define as ‘nakedness.’ Some allegedly leaked nude pictures of her on internet. To some people not the ideal woman to marry into royal family, importantly to marry sixth in line to the throne. For this reason was abused by many on the internet, on radio, tv etc. This made the British Royal Family’s communication secretary to release official statement in November, 2016 addressing the issues, ranging from sexism, to racism etc. But none of these, not her background as a ‘commoner’ or an African-American, an actress, a divorcee did not stop her. So after today, 19th of May, 2018, Meghan Markle becomes ‘Her Royal Highness Princess Henry, Duchess of Sussex and Countess of Dumbarton and Kilkeel.’ So for ease called ‘Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Sussex.’ For the record she is first ever approved Duchess of Sussex in the history of royal family.IMG_20180521_122252

THE AMAZING THING is that although Meghan is not royal by blood, yet when with her husband Prince Harry or the Duke of Sussex, she will take his status and rank. As a result, all blood royalty below status and rank of her husband will have to bow and curtsy to her. On the contrary when she is alone then she has to bow and curtsy to blood royalty or anyone more senior than her. This helps to understand the imputation of righteousness of God. Like Meghan, our own self-righteousness cannot qualify us to be called Christians or qualify for the Kingdom of God. And as a result, we need Jesus Who gives His Name, status in order for us to be qualified to enjoy the privileges of God’s Royal Priesthood. In this case it is Jesus Christ of Nazareth our joint Heir makes us Children of God as Meghan from today officially known among the royal family. It’s not because of anything she did by her own accord or has done but because she is married to Prince Harry. She will receive secret service protection, diplomatic passports and enjoy other enviable privileges not because of her, but because of Prince Harry. In this context, Prince Harry is the way she has to all these. Without her Prince she is just Meghan Markle. In the same fashion the way to God to gain privilege in God in Christ and heaven is Jesus. We are qualified and will enjoy in heaven because of Him. We live forever because of our marriage to Jesus and it is not because of anything we did, have, will do or can do. And we are nothing without Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.jezus-christus

LESSONS FROM MEGHAN LIFESTORY.

1. No matter your past is. No matter the challenges, bad experiences you have gone through do not give up. Do not let your mistakes, setbacks and failures of the past to dictate your today and tomorrow.

2. Do not be over conscious of what people say about you. Don’t live your life according to the opinions of others. No matter the defamatory stories said or printed about you, whether true or false, don’t give up. Stand tall, apologize when you have to. Change when you have to. Reconcile when you have to and just march forward.

3. When your season is due, when it is your time to shine, believe nothing can stop you. No one knows tomorrow, your tomorrow can make your enemies, accusers, those who looked down or you to bow and curtsy to you. Be positive and work hard. The future is brighter.

4. More importantly, who you connect with is very very important. Who comes into your life is of great importance. Meghan Markle the actress because of her connection and marriage to Prince Harry is now someone so different with honour, higher status, privileges, care and attention she didn’t have before. She may not be royal by blood but because of her marriage some royals by blood have to bow and curtsy to her when she is with her husband.

As sinners we didn’t deserve it, our own righteousness couldn’t and cannot qualify us to enter the Kingdom of God except we repent believe in Jesus for Him to impute His righteousness on us. The same way Meghan Markle’s status as a popular actress, an American etc cannot qualify her and couldn’t qualify her to be called Her Royal Highness or for the royals to bow and curtsy to her but marrying the Prince and taking on his rank and status qualifies her. Who are you connected to? Jesus Christ of Nazareth wants to connect with you to save you, redeem you, to promote you, to Bless and Favour you and give you Eternal life in God’s Royal Kingdom.IMG-20180523-WA0001.jpg

The blue background of the shield on her arms represented the Pacific Ocean off California’s coast with two golden rays symbolic of the state’s sunshine. Meghan’s American royal arm features 3 quills representing communication and power of words. Beneath the shield, collection of golden poppies, California’s state flower and wintersweet which grows at Kensington Palace where she lives, the palace said. Next to shield are two “supporters“ one for her husband and one relating to her, a songbird with open beak which represents the power of communication. The good heraldic design is simple and the arms of the Duchess of Sussex stand well beside the historic beauty of the quartered British royal arms,” Woodcock said. Technical description of arms is “azure a feather bendwise argent quilled between two bendlets all between two like feathers argent quilled. To qualify in Kingdom of God one must wear righteous garments approved worthy of God’s Presence. In the same way the dress code for royal wedding conformed to their standards.
