by Valerie Cheers Brown

“A good friend should not just be someone to hangout with, but someone who encourages and challenges us to be more like Jesus in our daily lives.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

Okay, prefer to give a companion an inestimable blessing that would keep going forever?

You can do that by acquainting the person in question with the One who can change a real existence and certification everlasting life in Heaven. His name is Jesus!!

We as a whole have companions and associates who don’t know Jesus. We live alongside them, work close to them, and even go to church with them. Just because you go to church does not mean you know Jesus.

Regularly we simply don’t realize how to bring the subject up. It might feel unbalanced or excessively close to home. In any case, it doesn’t need to be that way.

Here are a couple of tips for offering the Gospel to other people:

Establish a relationship first. Become acquainted with your companion and let them become more acquainted with you. They will see your heart and know the earnestness of your spirit.

Act naturally. Try not to endeavor to utilize churchy words or push scriptures on them.

Converse with your companion conversationally. Let him know or her what your life resembled before you turned into a Christian and how Jesus has had any kind of effect in your life.

Try not to be judgmental. Once in a while, those we share Christ with having altogether different foundations.

Appeal to God for direction regarding how to react to every individual with the love for Christ. Keep in mind that you are essentially one human being imparting the Savior to another human being.

Try not to think about any reaction literally. You are the envoy and the Holy Spirit will take the message and give your companion understanding.

Be happy to answer questions however don’t be hesitant to state you don’t have a clue about the appropriate response. Look for answers in God’s Word to questions you don’t know and return to your companion.

Understand that it isn’t over on the grounds that you have shared your declaration. Keep on petitioning God for your companion and request that God give the person in question comprehension of what you have shared.

Additionally, request that God indicate you ways you can make your story clearer next time He allows you to share it.

As you experience your week, make certain to tune in to everyone around you. Do you hear somebody who is requesting the message of God’s adoration in his or her life? Give God a chance to guide you to inform that person all regarding it. God needs we all to go to Heaven. Is it accurate to say that you are tuning in for somebody who needs to realize how to have everlasting life? What a brilliant thing to hear and a great way to begin the new year!

Grace Changes Everything

“You’ll realize who is really there for you when you’re at your worst.”

Individuals dependably state you can’t generally clarify why you feel a specific way about somebody. Why you click with a few people more than others or why you all of a sudden vibe associated with an outsider. I feel like God conveys us closer to specific individuals in light of the fact that these are the general population we require in our lives at this moment. These are the general population who will either show us critical exercises about the existence or about ourselves.

The presence of God casts out fear of what looms near. It confirms to our soul. We are His.

There’s a motivation behind why God pushes your heart toward an explicit individual and a motivation behind why you get joined to specific individuals more than others. When I think back, there’s not one individual I got truly appended to who didn’t have something important to show me or didn’t assume noteworthy inspiration in my life. What’s more, the incongruity is, the greater part of these individuals were impermanent in light of the fact that their obligation was to demonstrate to me an alternate way and after that set me free.

Isn’t it funny how God puts both good and bad into your life to show your faithfulness and for you to grow from?

At times a mind-blowing phase figures out what sort of individuals you draw in and I feel that is the magnificence of confidence, God sends you the general population you require at precisely the perfect time. He gives you the appropriate responses you were searching for through these individuals. He illuminates you by conveying you closer to individuals who draw out the best in you. He encourages you when you’re battling by pulling you closer to the individuals who are equipped for uncovering you from underneath your dimness.

God always has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to trust His will. – Amen

It’s simply that occasionally we attempt to transform these brief individuals into everlasting individuals however that is not their job. They’re not intended to remain in our lives until the end of time. God considered them to be there for us for just a brief timeframe. God called them to be in our lives so they can improve us for the ones who are intended to remain for eternity.

Some people come in your life as blessings, others come in your life as lessons.

The issue is we turned out to be disappointed when these individuals leave since we can’t give up. We don’t comprehend why God would remove something so excellent or somebody who recuperated us yet in the event that you take a look at it from the viewpoint that if these individuals outstayed their welcome, their excellence will blur away, their affection will bite the dust, their story won’t motivate any longer and they will transform into a weight we’re not intended to convey, it will all begin seeming well and good.

Knowing when to walk away is wisdom. Being able to is courage. Walking away, with your head held high is dignity.  Amen

The pith of giving up is confidence. Confidence that this story is better left the manner in which it is. It’s better left the manner in which God composed it. Possibly revising it will demolish the story. Perhaps transforming it won’t give you a glad consummation. Possibly these individuals are heavenly attendants sent to you to show you a thing or two or recuperate you or improve you an individual and when their time is up, they take off. They’re intended to be set in another person’s life.

Every day do something that will lead you closer to God.

Possibly these individuals are likewise showing you how to give up, how to isolate, how to acknowledge when somebody’s part in your story is finished and have confidence that the following individual God brings you closer to is actually who you require, regardless of whether you don’t have any acquaintance with it yet.

God will also bring another person who has real problems in your life to help you realize you need Him, even more, to help them in order for you to get closer to Him! God knows how to get you to call on Him! Amen

Since I realize that the day we meet the individual who is intended to remain everlastingly, we’d have the capacity to spot them from a mile away, we’d remember them in a swarmed room since we at long last comprehend the distinction between somebody who contacts our hand and somebody who contacts our spirit.

I got to stay close to God it’s the only way I will make it in life. Without God, I can’t do anything. God is my all.  God’s grace changes everything!

Is Prescription Drugs: Involuntary Intoxication Causing Wrongdoing? by Valerie Cheers Brown

“I would like to see the drug scheduling system change the cannabis historical negative stigma and take a closer look at prescription drugs and their cause and effects. I would like to promote more empathy and fewer profits from private prisons earning from nonviolent offenders who are taking prescription medication when clearly all prescription drugs are dangerously stemming from the dangerous side effects causing all kinds crime effects and depressional chaotic not-ordinary behaviors while not being paid attention being clearly as an issue at hand needing addressing in the United States of America.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

Question: What is the contrast between voluntary and involuntary intoxication?

In contrast to automatic inebriation, intentional inebriation is never a guard to general purpose wrongdoing. Nonetheless, deliberate inebriation might be utilized as a barrier to explicit goal violations if, likewise with automatic inebriation, it keeps the respondent from framing the criminal aim important to perpetuate the wrongdoing or commit a crime.

Question: At the point when would intoxication be able to be utilized as a barrier or a defense?

In any case, it very well may be utilized to discredit the aim required to carry out a wrongdoing. In this way, most judges enable a respondent to utilize intentional inebriation as a barrier to explicit expectation wrongdoings as it were. Subsequently if the respondent is accused of a general plan wrongdoing, he can’t utilize willful inebriation as a safeguard by any stretch of the imagination.

Question: Is intoxication a resistance against criminal conviction?

Intoxication defense. In criminal law, the intoxication defense is a resistance by which a litigant may guarantee reduced obligation based on substance intoxication. … With respect to discipline, intoxication might be an alleviating factor that diminishes a jail or correctional facility sentence.

According to The Defense of Involuntary Intoxication by Prescribed Medications: An Appellate Case Review paper in the The Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law. Abstract says: The defense of involuntary intoxication has long been an exception to the general notion that intoxication is not a defense to criminal liability. The consumption of medications prescribed by a physician can form the basis of an involuntary intoxication defense. In this article, I review cases where defendants relied on the use of prescribed medications for an involuntary-intoxication defense. The medications most frequently implicated by defendants are listed by name and by class. From the case law, I provide a summary of the defense and a review of the pitfalls of the defense to serve as practice pointers for forensic evaluators.

That if a person by the unskilfulness of his physician, or by the contrivance of his enemies, eat or drink such a thing as causeth such a temporary or permanent phrenzy, as aconitum or nux vomica, this puts him into the same condition, in reference to crimes, as any other phrenzy, and equally excuseth him.1

In most jurisdictions, a criminal defendant may be excused from responsibility if he commits a wrongful act because of involuntary intoxication. Although relatively rare a quarter century ago, the defense of involuntary intoxication has steadily gained momentum among criminal defendants.2 The defense is based on the common-law premise that someone who ingests an intoxicant unknowingly or without awareness of its possible effects is not blameworthy. A defendant may become involuntarily intoxicated through the fault of another, by accident or inadvertence, or because of a physiological or psychological condition beyond his control. Although the term intoxication is generally associated with the ingestion of alcohol, the law recognizes that it could include any drug or substance with adverse effects, including prescribed medications. The Model Penal Code, for example, explicitly recognizes the involuntary-intoxication defense in the context of use of prescription medication.3

In this article, I review the legal aspects of the involuntary-intoxication defense for defendants who assert that their criminal acts were caused by intoxication with prescription medications. I review the United States criminal federal and state appellate case law on this topic. Identified are the medications most claimed by defendants who assert involuntary intoxication as identified in the appellate case law. Based on the legal cases, I also summarize the key aspects that negate a defense of involuntary intoxication and use legal case examples to highlight principles relevant to the forensic evaluator.

Questions: Why are doctors prescribing so much medication and could we in the United States be over medicating and could this be one of our problems of early death, suicide, crime. mass shootings. rape, be our cause for so much crime in the United States? Can we do more studies as to what prescription drug side effects may be affecting when it comes to crime rising? I know it takes to two to cause a problem but can we re-examine why doctors are writing so many prescription drugs? Can we as human beings rethink our symptoms researching, gaining knowledge of how to heal our body cells which can or may help our body to heal itself? If doctors are not being taught this maybe we need to self- educate instead of self-medicate. Can we re-evaluate why the crime rate has risen and can we take a serious look at why so many people are taking prescription medications/drugs and do they really have too? Can we as patients, clients, students. parents, grandparents perhaps take a look at what we can take in the place of prescription drugs?

View Abstract

Everything Has A Unique Frequency by Valerie Cheers Brown

Unfortunately, Tesla didn’t get to see many of his ideas come to fruition. Much like Michelangelo, he was a visionary inventor ahead of his time. He never achieved the fame, fortune or credit he deserved during his lifetime. By listening to this visionary thinker, we could have been enjoying transformational technologies like hydroelectric power and electric cars for years by now.

A man of vision

This is one of the most inspiring Nikola Tesla quotes of all time. He understood that the ego gets in the way of humankind’s development. Egotistical fighting for superiority will never allow us to achieve the things we could achieve if we combined our resources and skills.

“What we now want is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth, and the elimination of egoism and pride which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife… Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment…”

“My Inventions” first published in Electrical Experimenter magazine (1919); republished as My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla (1983)

“To create peace and harmony on our beautiful planet, we need to work together in love rather than egotistical competition and fighting for resources.” – Nikola Tesla

Unfortunately, Tesla didn’t get to see many of his ideas come to fruition. Much like Michelangelo, he was a visionary inventor ahead of his time. He never achieved the fame, fortune or credit he deserved during his lifetime. By listening to this visionary thinker, we could have been enjoying transformational technologies like hydroelectric power and electric cars for years before now.

“It is never too late to be inspired by the great geniuses of the past. If we follow Tesla’s ideas of working together without egotism and pride and using our imagination and intuition to come up with new ideas, then perhaps we can achieve all that he envisioned and more.”

Tragically, Tesla didn’t get the chance to see a large number of his thoughts happen as intended. Much like Michelangelo, he was a visionary innovator comparatively radical. He never accomplished the popularity, fortune or credit he merited amid his lifetime. By tuning in to this visionary mastermind, we could have been getting a charge out of transformational advances like hydroelectric power and electric autos for a considerable length of time at this point.

“It seemed obvious, then, that the human body broadcasts electrically, just like a radio station, but over a wide band of frequencies and very low voltages, which is why it has not been detected and measured until now.”The Cure for All Diseases With Many Case Histories by Hulda Regehr Clark, Ph.D., N.D.

God gave to me this book and it describes: “All diseases have simple explanations and cures once their true cause is known. Doctor Hulda Clark explains the causes of both common and extraordinary diseases and gives specific instruction for their cure through natural remedies and an electrical device you can build at home.”

From her book word for word: “Electricity can do many magical things; now we can add detecting substances in our body to that list. The method rests on radio electronic principles. If you match, very precisely, the capacitance and inductance properties of an external circuit so that its resonant frequency is the same as the emitted frequency coming from somewhere else, the circuit will oscillate. This means there will be positive feedback in an amplifier circuit. You can hear it. Like when a public address system squeals.” – The Discovery chapter in the book The Cure for All Diseases with many case histories

Above all, perhaps we should follow his example of understanding the energetic nature of the universe. Whether we call it physics or God, we can harness this power for the good of all.

“Of all the frictional resistances, the one that most retards human movement is ignorance, what Buddha called ‘the greatest evil in the world.’ The friction which results from ignorance can be reduced only by the spread of knowledge and the unification of the heterogeneous elements of humanity. No effort could be better spent.” – Nikola Tesla

“If what Mr. Tesla says is true about the energetic nature of the universe could it not be true that electricity could heal disease?” – Valerie Cheers Brown

Ecotherapy, also known as nature therapy or green therapy, is the applied practice of the emergent field of ecopsychology, which was developed by Theodore Roszak.

What are the cures healed by nature? Stress reduction is one of the most well-known benefits of being in nature. Getting outdoors, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Consequently, it may also help reduce blood pressure,heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.


I AM by Valerie Cheers Brown

Did you know that I AM are two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shapes your reality?

Wouldn’t it be nice when having a get together whether it be at a baby shower, wedding reception, school, honor societies (PTK), college campuses, family reunion, football game, baseball game, church, work, anywhere and you had a shirt that said I AM and your name on the shirt also? What goes after those two words is the most important!

For example, I AM Somebody, I AM the groom’s wife, I AM proud to be your mother, I AM proud to be your father, I AM proud to be your sister, I AM proud to be your wife, I AM proud to be your husband, I AM Somebody, etc.

These shirts would be ideal for kids birthday parties and it kind of makes it extra special when you can say something special after those two words, I AM? Great building self-esteem tool!

Let’s say at a Baseball Cardinal game they had red t-shirts with I AM a Cardinal Fan or I AM proud to be from Saint Louis, etc. and the shirt in itself is a conversation piece in itself and would make a person walk up to you and strike a very interesting conversation!

There could for babies as well as kids with choices of long sleeve shirts, t-shirts, short sleeve shirts, etc. whatever style you prefer but the fun part is what follows after those two words I AM!

I AM the world!

Love: The Beginning of 2019 and End of 2018 by Valerie Cheers Brown

“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” – Carl Bard

Image result for the city of love photo

As we commend the ending of 2018, I spent my afternoon curating lyrics and quotes regarding love. What was wonderful about this activity is the means by which there is a whole other world to love than romance. Love can be about friendship, an intense feeling of deep affection of the divine. Love can mean empathy and acknowledgment. Love does no hurt no matter what anyone says or does unto you. Love stays & once you have in your heart & soul can be one of our humankind’s greatest mystery.

We should start 2019 and end 2018 with adoration for love! On the off chance that you simply happen to be distant from everyone else on New Year’s eve pull up these sonnets and quotes by ending the year & begin the new year by welcoming affection & love into your spirit.

For the individuals who follow me & read my blogs, stories, etc. that I post I just want you to know that during the time your support & presence has said a lot and means the world to me. Much obliged to all of you for the love and support in 2018! Cheerful 2019 New Year to you and yours in the coming years. May everything you could ever want work out as expected and thriving all in incredible times!

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

“But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.”

“At night I dream that you and I are two plants
that grew together, roots entwined,
and that you know the earth and the rain like my mouth,
since we are made of earth and rain.”

“If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life”

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

“I want to see you. Know your voice. Recognize you when you first come ’round the corner. Sense your scent when I come into a room you’ve just left. Know the lift of your heel, the glide of your foot. Become familiar with the way you purse your lips then let them part, just the slightest bit when I lean into your space and kiss you. I want to know the joy of how you whisper ‘more.’”

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

  • Gebran Khalil Gebran

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.”

“Love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation”

“And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.”

“Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself, Love possesses not nor would it be possessed: For love is sufficient unto love.”

“When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”

  • Emily Dickinson

“Till I loved I never lived.”

“Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of breath.”

  • Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise,
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints -I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! -and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”

  • Hafiz

“The heart is a the thousand-stringed instrument that can only be tuned with Love.”

Two falling stars in the day sky.
Let no one know of our sublime beauty
As we hold hands with God
And Burn
Into a sacred existence that defies –
That surpasses
Every description of ecstasy
And love.”

And for tomorrow night as well,
As a matter of fact
I know of no better topic
For us to discuss
Until we all
Die!”

all other loves seem
irrelevant”

“most importantly love
like it’s the only thing you know how
at the end of the day all this
means nothing
this page
where you’re sitting
your degree
your job
the money
nothing even matters
except love and human connection
who you loved
and how deeply you loved them
how you touched the people around you
and how much you gave them”
