She learned that the man in the picture was great-great grandmother's brother Peter Hunt, the son of an Irish slave owner and a slave named America, Hunt joined the United States Colored Troops of the Union Army after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation.

Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, Founder and CEO of Miclknight. I am an Educator, Speaker, Author, Full-Circle Health Coach and passionate about healthy and balanced living.
Last week: Emotional Balance, today 2/4 Spiritual Balance; next week 2/11 Physical Balance; 2/18 Mental Balance.
My favorite word is: Moderation in what ever we do. What I mean with Spritual Balance is to have something to look up to, for example Nature, Sounds, Yoga, God, Buddah, something where you can pull strength from.
Why is this so important? As a baby we had our parent(s) nurture us. As children, we made friends and enjoyed spending time with them, sharing, playing. As teens it started getting a bit more competitive, and as adults, we get lost at times, because the support we had has shifted in us, as we want to be self-sufficient, knowing the answers, being respected,
That's why we need a supreme being or something that grounds us, so we are balanced. Remember the muscle testing we did last week? Use it!
From my experience, my spritual life means being, doing, giving the best I can each and every day and get the strength and wisdom from above to know what it is. Ask yourself, what is it for you? Do you get guidance from somewhere you feel you want to tune in, listen, then head the thought, feeling, guidance you get? Do you feel a shift in your body, your mind, your soul? That's what a Spiritual Balance is for me. Then I test it and when it's solid, I follow the action to that thought.

Why is Emotional Balance in our life so important?
I am not a Psychiatrist or a Psychologist, though have studied Psychology to become a nurse and then a teacher.
Why do these two professionals say we need Emotional Balance?
to understand people better, learn easier
to know how to ask questions that open up their minds and emotions i/o to help them
How do we know that we are Emotionally balanced?
When we are, how do we feel? Stressed? Even keeled? Easy going? Happy?
When we are not? Tense? Irritable? Angry? Frustrated?
What are the side affects of either?
How can we avoid the negative side affects?
How can we make sure we are balanced? Titer Toter, muscle testing
Meditation, Music, reading, listening to positive talk, walk, exercise, rest, healthy nutrition, ample hydration
Interaction with others
Recap: being emotionally balanced with all of the above mentioned points, helps us avoid going into Depression, having suicidal thoughts, and worse. It's all about Balance and today it's the Emotional Balance.
Stay happy, healthy and empowered!
