Basic Foundations of Life Series

Dr. Rev. Jenine Marie Howry, Ph.D.

I would like to welcome you to my basic foundations of life series. This came about during a time of much confusion for me, as to where my life is going and what life might look like in the phase I am finding myself in.

Wisdom led me to go back to some foundations. I am teaching them a bit differently than I ever have before. Our basic foundations in life are:

God

Marriage/Partnership

Family

These are the areas I will be exploring with you over the next few videos and blog posts. For some reason we have the idea that political values, government, or a hierarchy of leadership is supposed to be what we look to for our guidance first. This is not so. I would like to bring you back to the foundations of life and how the branches are supposed to begin from the roots of our foundation and then spread out to other forms. The additional forms from what we create through God, Marriage, Family, might be community, organizations and other forms of leadership. Our personal leadership starts with ourselves and our relationship with our Creator. Step into the divine! Here is a video to start you off!

Winter Solstice: Darkness and Light

Each year, along with winter, comes the winter solstice. This is a time when the sun might seem lower to the earth around noon, December 21st, 2020, as we experience the shortest day of the year. For the Northern Hemisphere, the solstice marks the beginning of winter, and in the Southern Hemisphere, this day marks the beginning of summer.

This year an even more fabulous celestial alignment occurs as Saturn and Jupiter align, creating what appears to be one great big star in the sky! This year the alignment will be its closest since 1623 AD, even though the alignment will occur every 20 years or so.

Although the two planets will appear closer than they are, actually they are quite far apart! Their alignment will create one big beautiful shining light! To us, they mark hope as the skies help us to reflect upon darkness and great light this year!

I heard it said once we need the darkness in life because it makes the light seem so much brighter. As we wave good-bye to 2020, remembering the darkness it sent to many of us, let’s remember the light it sent as well. In life, there will be good moments and not so good. We all experience them both. For those of us wise enough to understand, we will see good in even our darkest hours.

Tears are but for a moment, but the light that comes from God is one that shines in the heartbeat of all humanity. Let’s remember as the year closes that solstice comes to teach us that two coming together as one can create one great light, that darkness can help us to see the light so much brighter, and nothing ever lasts forever. Our dreams and aspirations are here now. Let’s work on them this coming season, beginning right now!

Love and much light to you!

Truth About Energy Healing, Light, and the Body, Mind, Emotion Connection (Part 2 of a Series)

A5HDQYRFdSF2pSwX6AzQ_Glandula_pinealis_1

Let There Be Light! 

Take your finger and put it on your forehead between the eyebrow area. Deeper inside this area in your head is a gland called the pineal gland. (Eastern culture calls this area the third eye.) This little wonder creates the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin. Serotonin is sort of the feel good neurotransmitter. It helps to regulate mood, sexual desire, digestion, memory and sleep. Melatonin helps with the sleep and waking cycles within your body. Without balanced quantities of these amazing little guys, our bodies get out of whack. We can become depressed, not sleep right, have memory issues and more.

For such a little gland, the pineal gland carries a lot of importance, and guess what? It is benefited by SUNLIGHT. Taking in natural sunlight into the eyes is very important because this helps stimulate this amazing little gland, and will benefit the brain and mood. I read once that the pineal gland has some similar tissues as the retina of the eyes. Basically without natural sunlight we are not balanced, growing, happy, or even healthy. Aside from stimulating important amounts of vitamin D, natural light stimulates our bodies, and the pineal gland into making these important neurotransmitters. While definitely not wise to stare into the sun, it is very wise to look out into the sunlight and spend time in the light.

If you work in an office all day with artificial light, take a nice walk in the fresh air and sunlight during your lunch or breaks. Your body will thank you! Jesus had said when the eye is full of light the whole body is also filled with light. This can be taken in a couple ways. One way can be light or Christed light, and another can be our  physical/emotional health benefits. When the eyes take in sunlight, literally our whole bodies are filled with light. When we think of it, we need the same stimulation as plants do in order to grow.

If you are angry, emotionally drained, feeling depressed or not sleeping well, then chances are you are lacking natural sunshine. When looking out into the sunlight set your intention to draw that light into your eyes, body, and pineal gland. Breathe deeply while doing this process. Oxygen helps to circulate the blood more effectively, so breathing deep is important. Send the light with your intention throughout your body. Then do something that is also quite amazing; smile. When you smile, the muscles used in your face will help stimulate happy feelings. You can not be unhappy or depressed while smiling. Sometimes we have to force ourselves but after a lot of practice it becomes a good addiction. (Not to mention you will bring smiles onto the faces of many others you encounter during the day.)

Breathe the light deep through your body and let it circulate through the entire body and then down through the feet. This is called grounding. Light stimulates the energy centers of the body that eastern cultures call chakras, or energy wheels. These energy wheels affect every organ and system of your body. I know it sounds strange to some but give it a try for over a week. Extend to a month and it can become a habit. Bringing in light and using intention to circulate it can be very powerful and healthy.

Repeat Jesus’ words as an affirmation “When the eye is filled with light the whole body is filled with light.”  Did He know something that we missed in our western culture? Possibly. Let your whole being be filled with light, just as God has stated from the beginning, “Let there be light!” All creation depends upon it or there would not be such an emphasis upon it. We need both light and darkness for a healthy sleep cycle.
If you find you are having trouble sleeping you can supplement melatonin. These supplements can be found in most drug stores. OR, you can eat melatonin stimulating foods. Christ light is holy light. Spiritually, the light of the world is within you and when you are aware of this, the benefit will be wisdom, power, and good health. Don’t forget, your body, mind, emotions, and spirit are all connected and one does not operate without the other.

“When your eye is filled with light, your whole body is filled with light as well.” Jesus 

Today, take in the Light of Life. Whatever is good, pure, joy filled, and love filled, suck it in like you have a straw from heaven. Your wholeness and health depend on what you take in . So make sure whatever you seek and look at in life is Light filled. Depression, sadness, and illness, can not live in any place filled with light. This includes seeing the best in those around you, in situations you encounter, and feeding your soul the best in spiritual food. Your health depends on it and you will be a lantern for others to follow.

Is It Depression, Or Is It Sadness?

A young woman was talking to a neighbor as she sat down at the curb in front of her house. “I am so depressed!”, she exclaimed. As I walked by I could hear the other neighbor ask her what was going on in her life. She talked about all of the losses she suddenly had gone through. She went from a concerned and upset face to an all out sob as she talked about the recent details of her life. I could tell by her sobbing clearly she was not depressed but grieving and sad from loss.

So many of us get the two confused. Let me make it easy on you to determine depression from sadness. Sadness expresses itself in tears, an open display of upset feelings,  rivers of emotion and the need to get it out of our system. Depression is on the other side of the coin. Depression presses down and there is no expression of sadness. It’s rare to see a depressed person sobbing although it can happen as depression releases. Usually depression leads with a sense of having a ton of bricks on ones chest or a heaviness. Depression causes sleepless nights, too much sleeping, and a feeling like the world is sitting on one’s shoulders. Both can cause a sense of heartache but sadness from grief or loss causes open emotion.

Sadness is a sense of being broken open. Depression feels like being broken in silence and can be caused by being oppressed or shut down from within. Think of depression as a tree that neglects to shed its leaves in the fall. There will not be a release, nor new growth when the spring comes. sadness from grief or loss is a like a tree that sheds its leaves, releases, is watered, and will spring forth with new strength when the spring comes.

When depression occurs it can be quite painful. It will manifest in body aches, loss of appetite, a sense of hopelessness, and the inability to emote ones feelings. Those who endure this from 2-3 weeks or longer are said to be clinically depressed. This can be brief or even a lifelong struggle. The word depression is often used very loosely but it can be very serious and sometimes even deadly. More people die from suicide due to depression than heart attacks. This is how important expression of our emotions truly can be.

We are meant to express sadness and emotion. Don’t ever feel bad for crying or allowing feelings to break loose. Your period of sadness will pass because feelings are opened up and are allowed air to heal. Depression can last a long time and seal in soul scars so tightly they are hard to pry loose.

We all go through seasons of sadness and even depression. Every person has had at least one episode of depression in their lifetime. Also, remember, sadness is a part of life. Without the tears we shed there would be no healing from the effects of this anxiety filled world we live in. Both deep saddness and depression can be places that feel very dark, but remember they are only opportunities to eventually see how glorious the light of life truly is! How much more can we appreciate the great things in life after having had experienced the hard things?

Remember this beloved. You will overcome! You have God-given life coursing through your veins and that reality will always assure you healing when you need it!

Loving Yourself While Loving God

You were not meant to be a sacrificial lamb but one who holds onto the lamb who died to give you an abundant life. God never called you to sacrifice but to love yourself so that you can love others in return.

Learn a lesson from this teaching about staying in integrity to that love. Let your “yes” stay a yes and your “no” to remain a no when it comes to virtue, morality, and Christ light. Watch!

8) Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 

9) But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:8-9 
Paul knew the power of uncompromising grace from God. He understood when he was weak there was a transfer through his faith in Christ that occurred. When we put aside our flesh or ego self, and place our faith in Christ who lives within us, it gives us power to live in God’s grace.
The ultimate healing is experiencing life through Christ light within us from the inside out. Easier said than done. It takes faith and belief in the knowledge of Who lives within us.
Affirm: Today, I place my self aside and all of the troubles that go with my struggles and change my perception. I will focus on the Christ light inside of me and not on the issues I deal with in this world, my emotions, in my mind, and in my body. To God be all the glory for His lavish grace and power He will bestow upon me today!
