PLANET X WAVES ON EARTH

b64beea69243108f538bb2b987ac9755.gifHigh waves on the earth are happening all over the world in extreme situations beyond expectations. Strong radiation of changes seawaves due to high waves built-up of sea’s energy. The rate of these rampart waves are so many people feel some cities will be drowned from them. Global warming affects the tidal waves still debated so the frontiers in Marine Science launched new section on changing Physical Oceanography to show undercurrent changing patterns in modern times. Combined with plenty of available information data from the climatology records rapid changes must be noted by those living in coastal areas. Planetary magnetic tidal impacts core of earth causing volcanoes, tsunamis and high waves. These waves of destruction are being forecast to rip through some mainlands globally, killing millions of people yet governments doing nothing about it as a documentary has claimed. Manmade efforts trying to curb, prevent or stop global warming seems to do the opposite. Flash floods in some places is now more common than ever before with damaging effects of earthquakes. Furthermore, fracking, aluminium and other toxic chemicals being pumped into atmosphere damage ozone layer of earth. The green house effect is causing acid rain back in soil seeping in oceans repeating the cycle.wave-crash-cinemagraph.gif

The UN is warning that we are now on course for 3C of global warming. This will ultimately redraw the map of the world. UN climate negotiators met for summit talks this month on new figure on data available. Until now, global efforts such as the Paris climate agreement have tried to limit global warming to 2C above pre-industrial levels. However, with latest projections pointing to an increase of 3.2C by 2100, these goals seem to be slipping out of reach. The situation is most people love the sea and are drawn to live as close by as possible. Surfers do wonders by courageous daring displays which attract more people in search of adventure. It is good to enjoy life, have fun but equally important to educate people about imminent risks involved. These rapid changes require decisions to do enough to save precious hundreds of millions of people from a miserable future,” said Erik Solheim, the UN environment chief, ahead of upcoming Bonn conference. The biggest resulting threats to cities around the world is sea-level rise, caused by expansion of water at higher temperatures and melting ice sheets on the north and the south poles. Scientists at the non-profit organisation Climate Central estimate 275 million people worldwide live in areas that will be flooded at 3C of global warming.a-musician-just-played-the-violin-while-surfing-mile-high-waves-in-portugal

Asian cities worst affected

The regional impact of these changes is highly uneven, with 4 out of 5 people affected living in Asia. Although the sea levels will not rise instantaneously, the calculated increases will be “locked in” at a temperature rise of 3C, meaning it will be irreversible though warming eventually slows down. In Osaka, Japan 5.2 million people affected At the end of a month battered by unseasonably late typhoons and relentless rain, Japan is already confronting the threat posed by climate change-induced flooding. Data recorded by meteorological department shows swaths of Osaka the commercial heart of a region whose GDP is almost as big as that of the Netherlands would disappear beneath water in a 3C world, threatening local economy and almost 1/3 wider region’s 19 million residents. Millions of people live in the urban area surrounding Osaka. A sea-level rise will reshape densely and sparsely populated areas. As a result of global sea-level rise, storm surges, other factors, economists project that coastal flooding could put almost $1tn of Osaka’s assets at risk by the 2070s, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.article-0-07838117000005DC-359_964x592

The costs of protecting cities from rising sea levels and storms are likely to rise so is costs of repairing storm damage,” it said. “Decisions made today can have a profound impact on security, culture and lives of people of this ancient city. Like much of Japan, Osaka has network of seawalls and other coastal defences in place to combat tsunami although their effectiveness disputed in the aftermath of the 2011 triple disasters. Osaka city authorities are investing in other infrastructure to mitigate effects of flooding, but public education is vital, according to Toshikazu Nakaaki, Osaka municipal government environmental bureau. Past response was focused on reducing causes of global warming, but given that climate change is inevitable, according to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), discussions turned to how to respond to the natural disasters that will follow,” Nakaaki said. Like other major coastal city areas it is anticipated Osaka will be affected by natural disasters caused by the climate change. So needs to establish exactly what might happen in advance to help prepare adequate tools for survival and how much financial damage it causes.Tsunami_(19)

The expected sea levels rising is a point worth noting now rather than in the future as seas are already rising. Keiko Kanai is aware that her home city is susceptible to natural disasters. She heard historically, tsunamis caused by earthquakes put many parts of Osaka underwater and knows some parts of the world are at risk too from rising sea levels,” said Kanai, who teaches at local university. But didn’t put two and two together until now did not give much thought to the idea Osaka too could be engulfed by rising sea levels. Kaori Akazawa, a nursing care consultant, said flooding was a consideration when she was deciding where in Osaka to live. When she moved there she talked to her colleagues about risks, she said. That is why shr always rented apartments on the fourth storey or higher. Alhough it is worrying, never considerd moving. In Alexandria, Egypt 3 million people are affected. On the Alexandria Corniche, waves slowly lap at a shoreline dotted with plastic chairs and umbrellas from beachside cafes. Students perch on steps of imposing Alexandria library. Its the same coastline that draws locals to its scenic vistas threatening to slowly engulf historic city as sea levels rises. 847-waspadai_perairan_babel_hujan_petir_dan_gelombang_tinggi-696x341

The IPCC reported that Alexandria’s beaches would be submerged with a 0.5-metre sea-level rise, while 8 million people would be displaced by flooding in Alexandria and the Nile Delta if no protective measures are taken. A 3C world threatens far greater damage than that. Yet for many residents, there is little public information to connect the increasingly chaotic weather and floods with climate change. The vast majority of Alexandrians do not have access to knowledge so quite worrying. Experts say governments must raise awareness of problems not wait until it too late as already happening, said 22-year-old student Kareem Mohammed. It is necessary to train people to prepare in advance for high waves damaging a city impacted by storm surges. Some do not realise urgency of such impending disasters so everyone thinks we should act on this problem 50 or 80 years from now, agreed his friend, Hazem Hassan, a student in marine biology at a nearby Alexandria University. FANTASY_Moses_Ocean_Freeway Officials maintain protective measures are being taken as Egypt spends 700m EGP [£30m] annually to protect north coast,” said Dr Magdy Allam, head of Arab Environmental Experts Union and was part of the Egyptian environment ministry. So miracles are needed to save humanity from drowning by highwaves towering over cities breaching walls too small to contain such pressures. Allam cited Mohammed Ali sea wall, built in 1830 as key protection as well as the concrete blocks lining the shoreline designed to detour flood water away from residential neighbourhoods. But critics say this is far from enough given the large-scale high wave problems. So studies indicating the city, one of many coastal human settlements around the world will be partially submerged by 2070 if nothing is done,” said Ahmed Hassan, of Save Alexandria Initiative, a group that works to raise awareness of the effects of climate change on the city.2DDC00D000000578-3294639-Photos_of_yesterday_s_remarkable_attempts_to_surf_Atlantic_swell-a-4_1446107336034

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

1.8 million people affected as residents of Brazil’s postcard city with plenty of reasons to fear global warming even if they do not quite know it. According to Climate Central temperature rise of 3C would cause flooding of not just Rio’s famous beaches such as Copacabana and its waterfront domestic airport, but also inland areas of the Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood, where that last year’s Olympic Games were held. Barra is built around a network of heavily polluted lagoons that empty into the sea. The prospect of it being underwater alarms resident Sueli Gonçalves, 46, who runs pensioners’ health projects, with a 23-year-old son Yuri Sanchez carrying the shopping past Olympic Park. “My God. Oh Jesus,” she said, with nervous laugh  will leave there, go to United States, To Canada.” The family knew about global warming but unaware of potential scale of impact on upscale neighbourhood of smart condominiums and the shopping mall. She said, Nobody takes it seriously people do not think longterm. The storm surges recently destroyed hundreds of metre’s beautiful beachfront pavement overlooking Macumba beach, a popular surfing spot on Rio’s western fringes. Last year, heavy waves in other storm surges felled an elevated, clifftop cycle path between Leblon beach and Barra de Tijuca which had not been built to survive high seas, killing two people.Tidal-wave-Tsunami-Spain-portugal-796446

So last year, Rio’s city government and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro produced a study entitled Strategy for Adapting to Climate Change. Current challenge consist of the need to deepen knowledge and monitoring of oceanic phenomena and the evolution of the sea bed and coast,” a spokeswoman for the city’s secretariat of the environment said in an email. An “adaption plan” for climate change produced with the help of professors from federal university suggests strategies to deal with needs and vulnerabilities in areas such as transport, health and housing. But so far little has been done. Nara Pinto, 38, who lives in the sprawling Rocinha favela and sells snacks on the pavement overlooking Copacabana beach, said the loss of Rio’s famous beaches would cost a lot of jobs. “The beach is tourist point,” she said. What can be done to stop this?U414P886T1D12824F12DT20120416143632

Shanghai, China

17.5 million people affected if Shanghai is completely gone some think they will move to Tibet!” says the resident Wang Liubin, when he is shown projections for the city after 3C of global warming. When it comes to flooding coastal city is one of the world’s most vulnerable. As one of the world’s biggest ports, former fishing village is bordered by Yangtze river in the north and divided through the middle by the Huangpu river; the municipality involves several islands, two long coastlines, shipping ports, and miles of canals, rivers, and waterways. In 2012, a report from a team of UK and Dutch scientists declared Shanghai the most vulnerable major city in the world to serious flooding, based on the factors such as numbers of people living close to the coastline, time needed to recover from flooding, and measures to prevent floodwater. According to those Climate Central projections, 17.5 million people could be displaced by rising waters if the global temperatures increase by 3C. Projections show a vast majority of city could be submerged in water, including much of the downtown area, landmarks such as Lujiazui skyline and historical Bund, airports and outlying Chongming Island. Since 2012, the government has been making steady inroads to tackle the threat, including building China’s largest deepwater drainage system beneath Suzhou Creek waterway, made up of 15km of pipes to drain rainwater across a 58 sq km area. It has rolled out 40bn yuan (£5bn) River Flood Discharge project stretching for 120km between Lake Taihu and the Huangpu river to try to mitigate the risk of upstream lake flooding. Flood prevention walls are being built along waterfront in places so high the river is blocked from view and 200km more are promised across city’s outlying districts. Flood controls are put in place along famous Bund waterfront, where walkway was raised to help counter flood risk, as well as a series of water controls and dams.b4adfbf40ebb52097fa252ab0eead7c4c38bb9536dc408b439e85280e8b4d467ce67cc4064d7e525c51d2c39fd68607b40ddd90a6bb5b6bf6a234408756de1af (1)Ingeniero afirma que Harvey e Irma fueron creados por el hombreat195403

Miami, US

2.7 million people are affected but few other cities in the world have as much go lose from rising sea levels as Miami, and the alarm bells sound ever louder with each successive the king tide that overwhelms coastal defences and sends knee-deep seawater coursing through downtown streets. Locals consider this the “new normal” if the biggest city of Florida’s largest metropolitan area is to cease to exist with 3C temperature rise. At 2C, forecasts show the entire bottom third of Florida area south of the Lake Okeechobee currently home to more than 7 million people submerged, with grim projections for the rest of the state in a little more than half a century. In Miami-Dade county alone, almost $15bn of coastal property at risk of flooding in the next 15 years. A sense of urgency is evident at city hall as commissioners are asking voters to approve a Miami Forever Bond in the November ballot including $192m for upgrading pump stations, improving drainage to raising sea walls. As a really precious city many people love it willing to invest right now but it is going to take lots of more funds to protect it,” said Ken Russell, the city commission’s vice-chair. Last year, the city of Miami appointed sea-rise expert Jane Gilbert in newly created role chief resilience officer with instructions for a robust stormwater management plan to look at storm surge like Hurricane Irma in September which brought significant flooding to downtown Brickell and the neighbouring Coconut GroveProposals include elevating roads or abandoning neighbourhoods to the water to protect others. Needs universal recognition all in this together, to protect this amazing global city that it has become,” she said. Natalia Ortiz, grew up in Miami, fears the future as its very scary,” said Ortiz, who works with Cleo, a climate change advocacy group. Says son is 11 daughter nine, so they’re young but thinks about their future, will they be able to raise their children in Miami the way had the luxury of raising mine?” San-Andreas-Faultmaxresdefault

California and Canada

California is said to be awaiting ‘big one’ caused by the stress faultline increasing earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis. Since September 2017, CALIFORNIA has been rocked by 28 earthquakes in just 24 hours, sparking fears “big one” could roar any moment soon.  Big One WILL hit California soon as huge earthquake rattles Mexico scientist said. California could be in for a huge earthquake as a scientists warns potentially catastrophic San Andreas fault could be about to rupture following the deadly tremors in Mexico. In days following the powerful 7.1 quake in Mexico City which killed more than 200 people warnings are being issued to prepare survival kits of food and water and be alert daily while going about normal business. California is preparing for next big earthquake as a leading Los Angeles News reported on ‘The Big One’ 03:43 (CNN) Channel, 30th September 2017. The scene is terrifying as entire sections of a Mexico crumbled so people are being warned to get ready for any changes that will take place. San Andreas Fault in California stretching in continental fault extends roughly 1,200 kilometers through California. It forms tectonic boundary between Pacific Plate and North American Plate and motion is right-lateral strike-slip. Its Length:1,200 km (750 miles) with Cities:San Francisco affected among others.CnOyfD6VUAA_v9K

In 2000, living in landlocked region with no sea whatsoever I was completely surrounded by the high sea waves yet not drowned in a dream. It was before popular internet data readily available or current events recorded on tsunamis so the dream bothered me. I went to an environmental lecture the next day and the lecturer’s topic was on exactly what I saw in the dream. He showed us maps and gave notes on the rising sea levels and the earthquakes happening. I did not mention my dream to anyone just was amazed at the information given. The lecture said it was all happening so continues to happen. He gave namelist of same cities and many more in lecture notes that will be submerged if nothing is done about them advance. It sent a chill down my spine as I pondered over those lecture notes. I recalled my dream and felt spirit of heaviness crying tears over the details. I mentioned to some people affected if possible to move or do something about it to help others. On the whole not long after dream so many cities shared on TV high wave disasters we were taught about. The lecturer said he had friends who owned tourist travel businesses in some of those places so was also deeply concerned. Then other places like Louisiana, the Philippines, Japan among other started experiencing the highwaves. In addition, tidal Sun and moon magnetic waves compound a sea warmed up to produce huge waves. As Fatima predicted in 1917 tsunamis to be shared in 1962, it was sealed and was never made public so many perished. In Isaiah 52:7 God’s word says beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of one who brings good news to publish peace bringing good news of happiness and publishes salvation saying to Zion, Your God reigns. In same way God extends HIS Mercy and grace by delaying these disasters so people can hear the Gospel before it is too late. As Moses and Israel faced red sea and were miraculously saved and delivered from danger so God is able to save those crying unto Him to save humanity once again. With God all things are possible ask for God’s miraculous protection and deliverance. Jesus calmed storm at sea so call Jesus to help and be kind to yourself listening to instructions on the weather forecasts. Take action in advance to preserve lives in Jesus Name because God is able.moses-parting-red-sea-prince-of-egypt

This happenings sadly are part of end time judgements of WRATH of God and Wrath of Christ. Humanity is given a choice to change behaviour patterns since invention of electricity damage to earth increased. From planes throwing nuclear bombs to chem trails or missiles there comes a point God wants earth to be restored from destructions. People are unwilling to accept change or live simple lives that does not destroy earth with plastic wastes, damaging flora and fauna.  Toxic chemical destroy nature, organic plants and human lives now suffering from previously unheard of diseases. God decided enough is enough so sending Nibiru wormwood to cause havoc to shake earth. God waited 6,000 years patiently by hoping all mankind would come their senses by their own choice to submit to God. Although It is true billions love God and devoted to HIM transition is taking place by God wanting to restore HIS earth to original perfection again. The great Tribulation cataclysmic events are beggining to unfold and sadly it gets worse before it gets better. If you are reading this article make sure you are in God’s Kingdom by accepting His Son. This is the condition God gives for HIS salvation plan through Jesus to endure ETERNAL life. After Rapture things get even worse than happening now and one does not want to be left behind in Jesus Name. Afterwards the new earth will be brought into existence replacing the old destroyed planet. This is in the Bible orchestrated by the creator of the universe to take back HIS property. In the past God destroyed people by flood waters in Noah’s days and fire, Sodom and Gomorrah. Jesus said as it was in days of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah so will it be until Son of man Jesus returns to take back power to rule and Reign as KING of Kings on earth in Israel.

HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD

291754852_640

Confidence in God is inbuilt in the brain to receive information, process, to take an action, store, apply or discard based on relevance. So scientists successfully have mapped parts of brain enhancing positive thinking to enable reinforcing good thoughts. When we think about ourselves positively, we are stimulating parts of our brains involved in reward, motivation, pleasure, says Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom. According to Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom a neuroscientist who has three daughters who also has a successful career at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. She has examined the role neuroscience plays in boosting confidence. This is particularly useful to many people who need exactly that, she writes as part of this year’s 100 Women Challenge. As primary carers or nurtures the mother’s confidence rubs on a child in the formative years of growing up. A happy mother is a happy child and happy family so is important to ensure the confidence of the mother is especially enhanced and supported. It takes a whole village to raise a child so the woman’s confidence is essential for the happiness of the spouse and vice versa. Confidence radiates in a person so is felt by those around that person so necessary to promote positive thinking. The world is so full of negative news it may seem impossible to think or to feel positive at any given moment. However confidence in God is the anchor of hope and joy in spite of adversity.images

confidence-in-the-lord2Confidence in God is unshaken by those circumstances of life having assurance God is still on the throne. Confidence is something many people want but do not know how to get. We need to embrace our abilities, our values and have a self-esteem to be successful. Without it, we are less likely to seek promotion, speak up in meetings and rise into leadership positions. This ultimately has enormous impact as various studies after studies shows having confident people at work in position of power correlates with the profitability collaborative environment and improved problem solving. So with some practice, we can use neuroscience to help to be more confident. The most influential or the inspirational names around the world every year are full of confidence. In 2017, challenging people to tackle the 4 biggest problems facing people today like glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport. With the help of all hopefully can be coming up with many real-life solutions and so we want you to get involved with your ideas. 8aa3408d68e32286c91a4aeea3380fd6 CONFIDENCE-IN-GOD+copy

Thinking positively we know enhances self-confidence like all other personality traits reside within our brains. Alhough a large part of architecture of the brain is predetermined yet experiences and the choices we make continue to shape us. Over the course of life we acquire new knowledge, abilities by modulating the intricate and malleable connections between the cells and circuits in brains. We can utilise neuroscience to silence our negative inner voices and boost our confidence. These strategies work by engaging “value areas” of the brain. When we think about ourselves more positively, we are able to stimulate the parts of our brains that are involved in reward, motivation, and pleasure. One output of this pattern of neurological activation is we literally feel good when confident, we hold our heads high.Dr. Bloom with her three daughtersDr. Bloom with her three daughters

A healthy positive feeling is contagious so promotes those around us to be more engaged with us, whether its colleagues, our friends, or troops. The reinforcing reactions we see and feel in response to our confidence feedbacks to our brains to encourage more activity. So the first step is to push back against obstacles we know stand in our way being mindful of situations and deciding to be confident. Making complex decision is a multi-step process that taps into our emotions and engages many other parts of the brain.

Train your brain

brainWhen we have made the decision to be confident, we have to start training our brains. The Above brain scan details by DR. GYORGY BUZSAKI, NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE, shows the orange structure here as one of billions of neurons that is often stretching out to make connection (synapses) you see in yellow (more than 75,000). Those connections are what we are tweaking when we learn to choose confidence Just like mastering any other talent, gaining self-assurance requires repetition and time. Every time we do or learn something new, our brains adjust to store our new skill or bit of knowledge. This happens because parts of our brains are plastic and synapses that connect our brain cells, called the neurons, to each other can be modified, strengthened, and even newly created to store what we have acquired in this case confidence boost communication. From a scientific perspective people can blame both nature nurture for stacking the odds against them when it comes to valuing themselves. A biological reality is that women secrete different levels of hormones than men so react differently to the same world around us.brainThis brain scan shows “value areas” of the brain. DR PAUL GLIMCHER AND IFAT LEVY’s image caption reveal the areas of the brain in these images that are coloured to show they are activated “value areas” of the brain. Women tend to have a desire to please others, to seek acceptance, inclusion and avoid conflict. The way women respond to a stressful situations is different to men. While the men tend to take more risk when under pressure, the women look for the surer solutions and reach out to connect with others to manage stress. These genetic differences are compounded by the fact that we are socialized differently from the moment we are born and a pink hat is placed upon our heads.

Boys and girls

As we grow up, young women are not necessarily taught to exhibit any self-confidence, and if we do, we are often criticized for being “snobby” or “stuck-up” or “bitchy” words seldom associated with men. We hear damaging terms like “women’s intuition” suggesting that we aren’t making strategic analyses, but basing our decisions on some ethereal gut feeling but study after study shows women and men equally data driven. And the relentless emphasis placed on how we look erodes our self-image and for most of us, gets worse over time. As a mother of 3 young girls, this resonates every time daughters receive another impossibly-proportioned doll designed for dress up, caregiving, or primping.

Some women in a perceived masculine job are treated with ridicule finding it hard to convince men they are as good and competent as required to do the job even with their identical qualifications trained by exact same Institute. These bias comes in underhand tactics, jokes derogatory of performance and hurtful comments that can affect confidence. It is sometimes deliberately done hoping it drives away unwanted females from an all male exclusive zone. These can be do traumatic for women that it is very necessary to educate men on how to act, behave or talk to women. Especially the women of diversity background raised in serious environments teach respect of the emotional feeling others. Healthy interactions are required in a civilised  society that prides itself on equal rights or equal opportunities. Women are still facing hitting a glass ceiling if they also desire promotion by climbing a broken ladder. It is well-documented we way we raise girls and women has a lasting impact on way they view themselves and their abilities. Negative messages will engender self-doubt and lead us to underestimate ourselves. The result is not only a nearly universal feeling of imposter syndrome but fear of making mistakes, suspicion of underperforming unattainable quest for perfection. This is what is shutting down when making a decision to be more confident.confidence-blog-Jan1-1

Practice, practice, practice

It doesn’t matter what level of self-assurance you start at, the more time and effort you dedicate to practicing being more confident, the faster your brain will change and the faster you’ll master it. So it is important to remove ourselves from situations and people who make you feel bad because confidence largely comes from being in supportive environment. Environment comprises people around us and what we choose to focus our attention on. It is beneficial to concentrate on things that are empowering and to steer clear of exposure to images and contents that make us feel bad about ourselves. The way we choose to hold and to conduct ourselves is another factor. The mental simulations help envisioning ourselves finishing a race, speaking in public to a standing ovation, mastering job, getting a degree can all help build ourselves up. Just as a coach gives encouraging pep talk to the team before taking the field, we can give ourselves a confidence lift. Notably, these practices have an impact on our overall health and wellbeing, serving as buffer to stress, depression, and fostering good mental and physical health. When we choose confidence, we are rewiring our brains and we are able to change ourselves and our world, for the better. So how would you feel if you can become more confident, happier go influence people in a more confident manner. With God all things are possible.

JESUS’ REDEMPTION STORY

64c4b35ad8e698245862bbd9ce869f9a

The wise men found guidance in the Star of Bethlehem, for they saw His star in the east, and came to worship Him. Let us establish the fact of a star-picture in the heavens, which was known to the writers of the Old Testament. “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows HIS handywork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language their voice is not heard. Their line is gone through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them He set a tabernacle for the sun” (PSALM 19:1-4).IMG_20171109_194224Further in this Psalm one sees the circuit through which the sun passes to clarify the heavenly lights. The Bible declares, “HE tells the number of stars, HE calls them all by their names says Psalm 147:4. In Job 38 we read of the Pleiades better known as the ‘Seven Sisters’; Orion, ‘The Pot’ Arcturus ‘The Bear’ and Mazzaroth old Hebrew word translates as ‘Twelve Signs.’ The Greeks translate these twelve signs into the word ‘Zodiakos’, meaning ‘circle’, and from then the word ‘Zodiac.’ The centre of the heaven is divided into 12 sections, and each year the sun passes through these twelve sections or ‘signs’. This path through the stars in these signs is known as ecliptic path. It is believed the major stars in twelve signs depict God’s message of redemption to mankind so each sign having a Hebrew star name inspiring the picture story drawn on the heavens.

IMG_20171109_194306

Wonderful Message

Before further explaining these signs and subsidiary stars, with their wonderful message, it is important to note the profound difference between astronomy and astrology. The term ‘astro’ means ‘star’ in both words. The term ‘nomos’ means ‘law, arrangement or plan’, whereas word ‘logos’ means a ‘word’ or ‘doctrine.’ It is from the study of astrology that the reading of the horoscope has developed. This word comes from the Greek hora meaning ‘know’ and skopein, to ‘view’. It applies to observation of the hour of birth and the practice is to endeavour to tell a man’s fortune by the position of stars at the time of his birth. The Bible presents the wonders of the heavens as proof of a Creator and the details of the zodiac as a series of pictures giving details of the plan of the ages. The horoscope is a pseudo and vain attempt to transfer this story into individual prophecies, lucky days and personal direction. God has challenged the claims of the astrologers on numerous occasions. His warning to Israel in ISAIAH 47 speaks for itself:882002eecca1612fe9f2534158cd653d--names-of-jesus-jesus-is

“Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up and save you from these things that shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them…”(Isaiah 47:12-14). The practice of astrology and reading of horoscopes is unreal and useless.stars4

The Twelve Signs

The twelve signs are fairly well-known. They commence with Virgo, the Virgin, and conclude with Leo, the Lion; these two signs being associated directly with the birth and subsequent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. In Egyptian archives the sphinx is shown inserted as an asterisk between these two signs, thus dividing the circle and solving its own riddle of the ‘woman and lion.’ From here on each sign depicts some aspect of the Bible narrative: Virgo (the woman) with the branch lies amid 140 stars, with the sun taking 43 days to pass through this constellation. The brightest star in this sign is Tsemech (Hebrew) or Al Zimach (Arabic) means ‘branch’ or a woman and the branch.orion-star-guide

Isaiah 7:14 states, “Behold a virgin shall conceive and bear a Son…” There are three smaller constellations in each sign, also depicting similar aspects of the Bible story. Next is Libra, which in Hebrew is Mozanaim, meaning ‘the Scales’. Note that our own Southern Cross is in this constellation. Then comes Scorpio, which in Hebrew is Akrab, meaning ‘Scorpion’ or ‘stinging conflict one.’ Arabic word translates as ‘wounding him who comes.’ The Bible tells us that the “seed of the woman” would bruise the serpent’s head. The sign Sagittarius, the Archer, depicts a disciple of conquering Lord given us in REVELATION 6. The dragon, Draco, is shown cast down in constellation. Next is Capricornus, the Sin Goat. Our Lord was scapegoat and we are His fish, a wonderful symbol of the redemption plan as written in heavens. Aquarius, the Water Bearer, depicts the pouring on of water (See JOHN 7). One Hebrew star in this constellation, Deli, means ‘water container’, and other star, Saad, means the ‘one who goes and returns.’1369Belt

Pisces is known as Pisces Australis, the ‘southern fish.’ Hebrew word means ‘the fishes’, and speaks no doubt of the great ingathering of revival, restoration as promised. Innumerable scriptures speak of all these terms. Andromeda, the ‘chained woman’, is also shown in this constellation, symbolising Israel as the woman still chained in unbelief. Aries, ‘the Ram or Lamb’, which in Hebrew is Teleh, is an obvious picture of the many times our Lord is presented both in the Old and New Testaments. Cassiopiea, ‘the enthroned woman’ is in this constellation and speaks of the restored and crowned Is-ra-el people of God. The sign for Taurus signifies ‘the Bull’. The brightest star is Al Debaran, meaning ‘leader’ or ‘governor. Prophesy of Jesus in Isaiah 9 says the government shall be upon His shoulders, Isaiah 9:6.January-Orion-eastern-sky-m

In this same constellation we have a cluster of stars called Pleiades, ‘the congregation of the judge or ruler’, with its brightest star Al Cyone, meaning ‘the centre’. Many astronomers believe this star to be the centre of whole universe. In this constellation is Orion, means ‘the coming prince.’ In Hebrew Oarian mean ‘light’and Hagat ‘the triumphant one.’ Amos refers to Orion, which in Hebrew is Chesil, meaning ‘the strong one hero giant’ In the right shoulder of Orion we find Betelgeuz ‘the coming branch and his left foot Rigol the foot that crushes. A star in his left shoulder, Bellatrix, means ‘quietly coming’, and in the belt of Orion the star Al Niyak, means ‘the wounded one.’ Next is Gemini Twins. The Hebrew word is ‘Thaumin’ meaning ‘unites.’ Jesus the man, Christ the God in unity of man and God has provided the recommendation for sons of God. We find the star Apollo, meaning ‘ruler’ or ‘judge.’ Cancer, derives from the Arabic words ‘al sartan’ and means ‘one who holds or binds together.’ One large star in the sign of Cancer is Acubene, which means in Hebrew ‘the shelter’ or ‘hiding place’. Also in this constellation is Ursa Major, the ‘great bear’ recorded in JOB 9 and 38. Many other stars with Hebrew names are associated with this sign, and depict the lamb and the gathering of the sheep with the Lord. Finally we have Leo, the Lion. The end of the Zodiac circle. The riddle of the sphinx is solved with the head of the woman Virgo and the body of the lion Leo, which in Hebrew is Arieh. There are six Hebrew words for lion. This one means ‘the lion herds its prey.’ Star of first magnitude in constellation is Denebola, meaning ‘the Lord who cometh.’ “Weep not: for behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open book in REVELATION 5:5a4-flyer-01

Our future is written in God’s Word and declared in the heavens. Satan, as the master of illusion or delusion, still captivates the gullible. The present increase in the “occult,” the ouija board, seances, and horoscopes, all side-track the unsuspecting and superstitious, and endeavour to replace the ideology of God with that of man. As an alternative to the wonderful “outpouring of the Holy Spirit” as shown in the Word of God confirmed in the Zodiac, millions have now turned to the vanity of their own devices. Don’t read your horoscope read the Bible. At Christmas look for your Guiding Star to appear in your life. The Lord Jesus Christ our personal Star of Bethlehem, and as you place that star on top of tree remember true meaning, not its pagan godless alternative, but its message of hope and redemption. “We have a more sure word of prophecy, whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn and Day Star arise in your hearts”(2 PETER 1:19).

DON’T WORRY IN LIFE

Focusing on the present will help apprehensive thoughts to disappear on their own Matthew 6:25-34 in Bible says do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; do not worry about your body what you will wear. Your life is more than food and the body more than clothes. Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will take care of itself by trusting God to provide and guide you to make wise choices and prosper. And 
when anxiety or panic attack sets in do breathing exercise and remember great peace beyond human understanding is promised within God’s Gospel words bring consolation and joy. In Phillipians 4:6-7 Jesus said, Do not let your hearts be troubled since you believe in God, believe in Jesus. And do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer, petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God passing all understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. Jesus is in your lifeboat so it makes a difference despite the reality of circumstances. Isaiah 41:10 says, do not fear for I am with you do not worry or be dismayed for I am your God. I will strengthen and help you; And uphold you with a righteous right hand. Psalm 94:19 says cast all your anxiety on Him for He cares for you in anxiety so great is God’s words bringing consolation joy.
Proverbs 14:1 says anxiety weighs down the heart but kind words cheers up. And in Proverbs 12:25, Jesus promised that,

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. John 14:27 states, Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. Psalm 38:9 tells us, All longings lie open before God so sighing not hidden from God. In Mark 13:11, if falsely accused do not worry about what to say just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.2 Corinthians 9:8 says God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. And in Revelation 21:3-4, And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death, mourning or crying or pain for the old things pass away.” Job2:20-21 states Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb and naked I will depart. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away the name of the Lord be praised.”Luke 12:23 says,

Do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For your life is worth more than food and body more than clothes.

The Bible proves again worrying as the science research shows is just a waste of time so advises to turn off worrying. The  Experts reveals the THREE STEPS to take control of your apprehensions, stop brooding for good.

  • Recognise that brooding is a waste of time and energy, not problem-solving
  • Focus on the here and now to let worries slip away and stop them taking over
  • Avoid distractions as these have the opposite effect to calming down the mind
  • Distractions don’t work in the long term as you rely on external things to be calm 
  • ‘Our minds are so capable of imagining things and our thoughts become facts’

An expert revealed three steps to stop worrying for good. Recognise brooding thoughts are a waste of time, focusing on the present and avoiding distractions can all help people to take control of apprehensions, according to Professor Hans Nordahl from the department of behavioural medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He said:  people confuse ruminative brooding with problem solving, analysis or review, the content tends to be self-critical and self-focused and linked to negative experiences in life. ‘I usually illustrate it by holding a glass of water in my hand. Most people would say that’s easy to do, but if I hold the glass continuously for 2 hours gets heavy. ‘It works the same way with our brooding and worries. They aren’t necessarily that heavy when they’re short-lived, but they get heavy when they last for a long time. Recognise the brooding thoughts are a waste of time and energy and not problem-solving

3 STEPS TO STOP WORRYING

According to Professor Hans Nordahl from the department of behavioural medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, people can take control of their worries by:

  • Recognising such thoughts are a waste of time – Going over things repeatedly is not a form of problem-solving
  • Focusing on the here and now – Get involved in real-life situations to allow negative thoughts to disappear on their own.
  • Stop seeking distractions – These have opposite effect on calming mind as people rely on external things to find relief.  Recognise it is a waste of time.  

Firstly, recognise that worrying is a waste of time and energy. Professor Nordahl said: ‘Reducing ruminative brooding isn’t as difficult as it may seem, but there are a few prerequisites you need to know before you start. ‘The most important thing about brooding as a mental activity is to realize brooding itself is a meaningless and useless activity. ‘It doesn’t help anything and has no calming or problem-solving effect.’ People often confuse worrying with problem solving, the former is actually negative, repetitive thinking about negative experiences occurred or the way they did reinforces problems. Once you recognise you are worrying, ask yourself if it has any purpose or if there is even an answer to the question you are considering. ‘Focus on the here and now’ in the spatial moment and do enjoy your life no matter how humble. 

Secondly, try and focus on the situation you are currently in. Professor Nordahl said: ‘Get involved in other more real-life things currently happening in your life. ‘If you focus on the here and now, the illusions  that is worry and brooding won’t take hold as much. ‘The thoughts continue to churn, but just let them be there and live their own lives. ‘Anything that isn’t given attention will gradually disappear on its own, and this applies to one’s brooding. 

Thirdly, Focusing on the present helps stop the overwhelming  apprehensive thoughts to disappear on their own.  

STRESS SEES DANGER IN EVEN HARMLESS SITUATIONS

Stress makes people sense danger in harmless situations, research revealed earlier this month. Humans are thought to have learned to identify dangerous scenarios for self-defense, however, certain circumstances can cause people to misidentify such cues. Researchers found people respond with fear when their stress levels are high. Suzannah Creech associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Texas, who was not involved in study, said: ‘These findings provide important laboratory data that helps explain why PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] symptoms exacerbated during times of stress, and the repeated stress and trauma in the battlefield may lead to increased risk for PTSD.’ Experts believe the findings could aid PTSD treatment. Distractions do not work so avoid distractions as it has the opposite effect on calming the mind. Professor Nordahl said: ‘Turning focus away from your thoughts does not mean trying to escape or distract yourself from them. ‘Many people use television, gambling, computer games or drugs to control or suppress the brooding. ‘Distracting self in order to calm down does not work well in the long run. You’re relying on other people or external things to get calm. ‘Trying not to think of negative thoughts creates a recoil effect, because the brain has to keep track of what you shouldn’t think about, and those are the thoughts you’re trying to avoid.’ ‘Our minds are capable of imagining things’

Professor Nordahl said: ‘some people often confuse ruminative brooding with problem solving, analysis or review, but unfortunately the content tends to be self-critical and self-focused and linked to negative experiences in life. ‘I usually illustrate it by holding a glass of water in my hand. Most people say that’s easy to do, but if I hold a glass continuously for two hours it gets heavy. ‘It works the same way with brooding and worries. They aren’t necessarily heavy when they’re short-lived, but they get heavy when they last for a long time. ‘We’re well equipped to develop anxiety and worry, because our minds are capable of imagining things and our thoughts become facts. ‘Our capacity as humans to analyse ourselves or to anticipate threatening scenarios can be used in constructive ways but has negative and unhelpful effects.’ Life coach Sarah Alexander explained steps to low stress.

SAD WINTER DEPRESSION

171629_20140102_170028_timeSeasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) used to affect me so badly at times I was in bed for days. Also known as the ‘winter depression’ is exacerbated by loss and grief, pain to become unfit and unwell not very actively doing any work for all such reasons or no particular reasons. I did not feel like bubbly self but wanted the curtains drawn during the daytime. I became unwell at times bed ridden for days. It happened consistently for years until my doctor told me about SAD as a condition that affects people during the cold months of transition from summer to winter. The body feels changes in the weather so responds in a different way making people feel sad, down, anxious and depressed. These changes happen so some people dread winter months of returning to work, school in September. Autumn to Winter shorter, colder days seem like a gloomy prospect. Autumn can worsen anxiety and depression as experts say, so why does it affect us and can we beat the blues. I discovered the reason was less Sunshine means less light affects brain parts that control mood swings when it is colder too. Some few people manage to escape into hot zones during winter months for a while. But few people are privileged to escape harsh cold winter. It affects people if too busy to take care of self in a healthy way. Being too busy doing too many things to manage own personal life due to the other demands on time and attention given others often seen as more urgent than own personal needs for quality time. Any yes person understands that trying to help others mostly in crises after waiting too long drains the mind and sometimes too late to seek help. During such times can feel obliged to jump in at deep end to rescue others until one has a burn out.01_Silent_signs_seasonal_depression_disorder_SAD_good_zzs_yanyong Realise doing so for years means hardly any time left to meet personal needs. Its really SAD that awoke me to change my lifestyle to be able to stay healthy to overcome SAD moments consistently. I discovered solutions that help deal with SAD by increasing light, strong light is helpful to provide similar effects of the Sunshine light. Special halogen lamp helps body to adapt to mood changes and mood swings as the light and heat combined transforms the brain. It is important to open the curtains to get Sunlight and fresh air. To wear a winter clothing suitable for the weather rather than about fashion and image. It is necessary to wear good soled shoes with foot warmer insoles to protect the feet from cold affecting brains neurons connected to the feet. A warm feet and hands, face equals good moods so cover up well in winter clothing. Although the Sun seems bright it is not really hot as in the summer months. If indoors and getting up to dress for the outdoors remember indoor room temperature is warmer so do not dress by indoor warm temperatures. Carry a spare clothings for any unpredictable changes in the weather to be safe than sorry. Be aware of the fabrics best for winter clothing and wear them earlier in Autumn than wait for coldest winter. This changed my life as body preserves summer heat throughout into winter not waiting for freezing cold months to put on warm clothes. My body and feet even sweat in winter as if still summer days. I am active in winter again eating healthier hot foods to keep my body temperature up. I ensure my sleep improves by time routine structure. My sleep pattern gets better by a set room conditions adapted to let body wind down to sleep better. insomnia2-1038x576If not mind becomes fogged by lack of sleep, red eyes, inability to focus. Extra effort is required make changes to get better results, rest, rest, rest from exhaustion, tiredness, fatigue, stress, pressure, noise pollution, fuels SAD. Distract yourself by playing crosswords, puzzles to improve brain muscles. If not on any emergency standby call of duty it is wise to switch phone off at night. Tell all people to call you only at certain times unless it is an urgent call, cut down the online time to give your brain rest. If the work entails online duties cut down on the personal browsing for “fun” as mind overworked does not get rest to replenish brain cells and the tissues vital for your well-being. Resist urge to stay sloppy, unkempt unwashed, not getting out of bed with the curtains drawn in your comfort zone. Even if cannot afford hot bath daily, top and tail and change clothes. Do not let yourself drift into an oblivion by pity party feeling sorry for yourself. Invite people over to force you to make effort to do something, ask for help, maintain your home and ask any friends to bring meals to share. Bake or buy good meals to share, charities are serving food and food banks are helping help yourself. So important not to let life overwhelm you. A good friend surprised the depressed friend with this homemade cake though not valentine day to cheer friend up. IMG_20170701_214235340

Do not be so private or proud to isolate yourself and hide because you do not feel good, it only gets worse until some cannot leave the house for years. Go out frequently and spend quality time at home to rest. Its these combinations of outdoors and indoors that helps you to get better. Volunteer, if you have no job at the moment, offer to help neighbours to run errands for them, etc and get joy of building others up its a great healer of mood swings. As you step outside self to focus on others you bring joy to them and yourself. In turn, no more isolated, so belong to a choir, music group other community support project help change moods. Take good quality vitamins to boost body’s energy level performance in winter months especially. Rest is very important to continue feeling better and emotionally stronger. Tell your friends and family about these changes asking them to help you keep up with the new plans you put in place. Exercise helps and keeping healthy friends to support you maintain changes is wonderful. You may help some improve their mood too. In extreme cases of clinically depressed people, doctors help with medication to lift the moods. So do not tough it out by yourself alone, seek help as I did years ago to share the results with you. If you have underlying deep-rooted causes of depression talking therapy or cognitive behaviour therapy required depending on issues dealt with. Remember to give place to God in Christ in life as it makes life easier to bear assured of eternal life.today-is-the-right-timeAs the weather is here to stay you must prepare to be able to function without blaming the weather. In fact changes in the weather is essential for carbon cycle regeneration so work with the weather not against it. “Every year I tell myself this is the last winter I can do in the UK,” says Cal Strode, 25, who lives in London and has seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a condition can bring on low moods and depression during autumn and winter. “It’s already starting to look darker and colder, and is when I tend to feel low and lack energy.” SAD affects about one in 15 people in UK between the months of September and April, according to the NHS. For more serious sufferers, it can prevent people from functioning normally during the autumn and winter months and is thought to be caused by lack of light, as well as other factors such as colder temperatures and the return to normal routines. Anxiety UK, a mental health charity, also says it expects to receive more calls to its helpline in September saying far fewer people contact the charity about anxiety and depression when the sun is shining.

‘My mood dropped’

Cal, who works for the Mental Health Foundation charity, was diagnosed with SAD six years ago when he was studying abroad in the US. “I was in San Diego and went home for Christmas, when suddenly my mood dropped and it felt like I had no energy to do anything,” he says. “It was supposed to be a happy time with my family and celebrations but I was staying in bed until the late afternoon.” With SAD, the lack of light is thought to affect the part of the brain that rules sleep and energy levels. As September looms, Cal plans to spend 45 minutes a day next to a light box to alleviate his symptoms, but admits finding the time can be uphill struggle. “Even on the way to work this week I thought this is such a beautiful day and my mood was so uplifted by it,” he says.A lunch on a pile of notepads, back to school

Back to school

Even for people without the disorder, September can be a difficult time as school starts and workplaces get busier. Added to this, the weather worsens, days get shorter, and it is a long wait until the next bank holiday over Christmas. “We see it every year; summer really does impact people’s moods,” says Nicky Lidbetter, chief executive of Anxiety UK. “People feel more resilient and able to cope when the sun is shining,” says Ms Lidbetter. “Summer is a time when it’s a more relaxed atmosphere in general, there is less traffic on the roads, it’s not as structured.” Autumn can leave us “pining that summer is gone”, she says, especially if any grand plans failed to materialise. “Even if we left school a long time ago, September feels like a time to be more serious and that can instil a sense of anxiety,” she says. But it is not all bad psychologists say we thrive on routine since it brings about structure and offers us a chance to be around people. “After a period of relaxation there’s the stress of a new academic year, or work getting busy, but also healthy routines and habits,” says Dr Sherylin Thompson, a counselling psychologist. “It can be worse if you’re feeling stuck in the routine, and haven’t got a choice, but it can be a chance to change things.” She suggests preparing for September by picking a new challenge or vowing not to give up on a hobby or activity you did during summer. “Keep up health habits, keep up socialising that would usually revive you in good company,” she says. Clinical psychologist Dr Camilla Rosan from Mental Health Foundation adds: “Over the summer people go on lots of holidays and they aren’t always around, now’s an opportunity to see friends.” She recommends planning days in advance, including going to the gym and seeing people. “When the days are shorter, it is important to make a clear routine about when we’re going to fit in exercise, get to the gym, see our friends,” she says. “The weather and light might be stopping us from going outdoors, but stuck at home when it’s dark and dismal into opportunity.” Cal makes an effort to eat well and avoid comfort food during the autumn and winter months. “Some days I don’t feel like I have the energy to cook, and you can crave fast foods high in fat and carbohydrates,” he says. “I’ll try to spend time over the weekends making something like a big bean stew that will last throughout week it is not sunshine but it helps.” Recognise features of this condition affects extreme behaviours or perfectionist tendencies from childhood so deal with the root causes of anxiety. Woman in a forest with autumnal treesListen to advise from the therapist to clarify thoughts in yout head. Not eating properly means losing weight which is very low for any healthy size suitable for you. Do not be angry if people say you are thin and be offended. Check if daily performances gets worse and worse and more more isolated to a point you identify not ok and not yourself anymore to completely lose yourself. Admitting issues helps to solves problems before it gets worse. Do not hide away and refuse to see anybody and stay in the bedroom thinking people are ashamed of you. Even in the depths of struggles set life goals to qualify and achieve a better you. Do not spent years trying to avoid to speaking anyone or be fluctuating in thought so not happy in yourself. Get a therapist at any point and start working through older issues that you may not realise exist affecting you. Deeper issues will be unravelled so things you never knew existed in your head to overcome anxiety depression. Clear your head and do not be forever angry and bitter, hot tempered, easily offended, narcissistic control freak, highstrung, uptight and explosive, raging inconsiderate temper tantrums, hysterical negative temperament anxiously living in fear and confused in thought. Do not be hyper alert feeling like being judged, on trial, scrutinized etc even fof helpful advise and support that enhances your welbeing. It is important not to project hurts or pain to those around because you blame all except yourself for all problems. Set long term and short life goals to achieve, be committed, disciplined, firm, filled with confidence. Understand the fickleness of human relationship require personal selfcontrol and tolerance. Search the meaning of your life to understand life on deeper level. Enjoy life, stay humble, encourage yourself in the Lord like King David did in his most formative years whether a young man or woman or adult. Remember, that the most permanent influences shaping your worldview is priceless quality time growing up in family. Do not become paranoid, shattered in the maelstrom of vengeful anger. Do not humiliate those who care or help you be strong when criticised. It is good to learn to survive on wits to develop emotional toughness not victim mentality but independence of thought. Reflect on ability to listen to other points of view without necessarily bowing to all of them. Learn to enjoy errors pointed out but not swayed too much by that. God corrects those HE LOVES so stand corrected and do not be obsessive about being always right. Just because so-and-so says something does not start weighing cost and benefit to lose appetite over it. Give in to good helpful advise to build you up. The Bible says give advise to a wise person and they thank you and become wiser. Give advise to a fool and he will hate you so choose your words carefully knowing when to apply golden rule in life at all times show kindness to even those who misunderstand your motives because you do things unto the LORD.

BEST AGE TO START FAMILY

DIqlGRVUwAASjVlStarting a family can be tricky business so you need to know when the time is right and if your partner is ready, and whether you can cope. Not all families are planned but more often than not, parents have given some thought to it. The best age to become a mother or dad is often a decision many have to make at some point in their lives. Now a new research by scientists point to ideal age 35 years. Thanks to science and media, according to Mirror Newspaper, signs, pressure and constant discourse about fertility seem to point to “sooner rather than later time as previously thought. A new research discovered the benefits of motherhood contrary the conventional wisdom. This new study conducted at the University of Southern California found out having a baby after age 35 improves mental abilities of the mother. _97789987_serenawilliamsSerena Williams played tennis during pregnancy and won with baby Alexis Jr. A sound preparation towards family life helps both parents to nurture the child better. The Guinness Book of Records the new mothers existing beyond age 60 as the geriatric mothers. Evidence of having baby after 35 years can increase life expectancy as research shows. This research of 830 postmenopausal women did several tests performed as part of research revealing participants tested on planning, visual perception, verbal memory, concentration and attention performed better. Women who had a first baby after 24 performed better on the mental acuity tests, problem solving, and verbal skills compared to mothers between the ages of 15 and 24. Mothers who had last baby after 35 had the better verbal memory and cognition results. Their increased mental clarity is thought to be related to oestrogen surge and progesterone in pregnancy. And the hormones are believed to improve their brain chemistry and functions if their pregnancy occurred later. Whether or not this informs a woman’s decision to have a child is up to them and should always consult your doctor about any worries but it’s still refreshing to hear having a baby at age 35 or onwards is not all bad news. So there is hope for many single women worried about their body clock. Since frontal cortex brain does not form before age 25 on average it makes sense to grow up first before trying to have a child. Often the world is full of children having children and struggling with shock and reality of caring for children and the pressures of motherhood in general. A 35 year old matured and experienced woman can perhaps handle pressures of sleepless nights better than 15 year old. Research confirms need to grow up first before taking on a responsibility requiring life commitment of financial burdens of taking care of children. Support is also necessary whether one has the children earlier or later in life. Most men really do not fully mature until about 45 years so worth noting that impacts their life. A family life requires hardwork, quality time and lifelong commitment so a child is for life no matter the age of parents.
