When the trust account is high, communication is easy, instant, and effective.
NEW SERIES OF TRUST AND LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALSO CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Wow, it’s Friday already! When I arose this morning, it seemed like déjà vu. It seemed like just yesterday Dan and I were coming back from Florida.
However, it was last Friday. Trust me, time flies by so quickly. So, today I will continue with other signs that you can look for that you can trust your partner, you don’t have to learn from trusting mistakes!
Trust thyself, every heart vibrates to that iron string. By Ralph Waldo Emmerson
Beginning with the fifth sign, which is, listen actively. Most often we tend to interrupt our partner’s talk or have the urge to offer advice. But when your partner is listening intently to whatever you have to say, it shows that they care for you and respects your feelings, then you can trust them.
Sometimes, I will interrupt Dan during his talk. I believe it is due to being raised with three sisters and not being able to always express myself. I admit I do have to work at this one!
Sixth sign is physical intimacy. It’s not about sex alone, but little things such as a good morning kiss, holding hands, or hugging shows the strong bond they share with you. Your partner can do such acts only if they have complete faith in you.
Seventh sign is maintaining eye contact. If they look into your eyes while talking to you, be assured that they are trustworthy. It shows that they have nothing to hide from you. If they are unable to meet your eyes while talking it could mean that they are hiding something from you.
Tomorrow I will continue with other signs that you can look for that you can trust your partner.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
Communication is important. Otherwise, the most you have to go by are actions and assumptions.
If it’s important to you, make an extra effort to talk to the person or people directly. Then use your intention and logic to make sense of the whole thing. You can’t make a whole decision on partial information.

TRIP TO ZAMORA CITY - Apr 21, 2015
Last Friday Dan and I took a tour to the city of Zamora where our first stop was the Cathedral and then some R & R time where we went to Camecuaro Lake.
Zamora de Hidalgo, is a city in the Mexican state of Michoacán. The 2010 census population was 141,627. making it the third largest city in the state. The city is the municipal seat of Zamora Municipality, which has an area of 330.97 km² (127.79 sq mi) and includes many other smaller communities, the largest of which is Ario de Rayón (Ario Santa Mónica). The municipality's population is around 186,102, which makes it the second most populous urban area in the state.
The city of Zamora is an important economic center in the state and the most significant population center between the cities of Morelia and Guadalajara. The city is located on the Tarascan Plateau in the northwestern part of the state, at an elevation of 1,567 m (5,141 ft) above sea level. Zamora is surrounded by the fertile Tziróndaro Valley which is an important agricultural area that exports large amounts of produce to the United States.
The Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a gothic revival Catholic cathedral located in Zamora, Michoacán, Mexico.
The cornerstone of the cathedral was laid on February 2, 1898, the feast of Candlemas, by the second bishop of Zamora, Don Jose Ma. Càzares y Martinez. The architectural plan is attributed to the Zamoran architect Jesús Hernández Segura. The diocese had been established in 1862 and needed a cathedral.
The construction started in 1898, with a crew of more than 300 men working on the site.
It was designed in the neogothic, or gothic revival style with an unusual twist, a dome over the crossing. The cathedral would contain 5 extensive naves, 4 of which had been roofed over by the end of 1910; vast amounts of quarry stone were required in order to accelerate the work.
The Mexican Revolution brought problems to Zamora, and to the country as a whole. In 1914 the work of construction was suspended due to the revolution and later, the Cristero War, for an indefinite time.
During the intervening years, only half of the cathedral was complete, including 4 of the naves, and all the pillars were in place. Unfortunately, due to the continuing conflict, the original drafts were lost; all that remained were a drawing of the original facade and a general plan of construction. Also, much of the original quarry stone disappeared, and the cathedral was damaged when the army decided to use one of the stone walls as a place of execution; many died by firing squad for their faith. The evidence still exists in the form of hundreds of bullet holes etched in the wall; a silent memorial to those who died there.
After many fits and starts, in 1988 His Excellency Josè E. Jiménez Robles, eighth bishop of Zamora, was able to plan for restarting construction and in 1989, it was decided to dedicate the building to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Its completion seemed almost impossible to him; the lack of economic resources and the time needed to complete the project being the most daunting tasks. He only knew that he and the faithful were up against a difficult but noble task.
The work of reconstruction began in 1990, with a new facade instead of what was originally planned, and bearing a resemblance to the gothic cathedral in Milan, Italy. A spire was placed at the crossing instead of the planned dome, this being an element more in keeping with pure gothic architecture. The walls were cleaned of debris then cracks were repaired and the walls reinforced.
The towers were redesigned to make them more spacious and the patio was paved in order to lend greater stability to the building.
At the moment, construction is on the verge of completion and last details are being finished.
The organ, by Alexander Schuke Orgelbau of Potsdam, Germany, is complete and was installed early in 2009. With the newly installed spires, the towers now reach a height of 105 meters.
The inner illumination is completely finished and in niches on the pillars, images of the saints have been placed, with plaques with their respective name’s underneath.
On to the lake we go for some relaxed R & R time. The Park consists of 9.65 hectares (23.8 acres) of protected area including Camécuaro Lake which is supplied by a series of natural springs.
The lake is popular due to crystal clear water and the beautiful vegetation that surrounds the lake. Even though the lake is relatively small, many photographers from all over Mexico come to take professional photographs that capture the parks picturesque views.
Over all the trip was fabulous. Just riding along the roads of Mexico gives you another outlook of life and the history that took place here.
Today, I’m continuing on the book: LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown. Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy. A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

Continuing on CHAPTER ONE – PUT ON YOUR GLASSES.
Are you willing to change! Relationships that are screwed up cause a lot of pain. You need lifelines to pull out of the whirlpools of harmful patterns that develop in unhealthy relationships.
If you are just beginning to twist, now is the time to reverse your patterns. It will take far less work now than if you wait until later. But if you are already at the bottom in your relationship, lost in a quagmire, take heart; you can reverse the patterns.
Often it takes hitting bottom to shatter the illusions and fantasy around a challenged relationship.
The bottom can be the beginning of renewal. When you are down, feeling there is no more use, the only way to go is up to a world of possibilities. If you determined to continue with the relationship.
Low points can be hope points.
Tomorrow’s post will be on relationship low points, that can be hope points.
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Ever wonder at the tradition of complimentary mint at the end of a meal? Mint stimulates digestion and relieves nausea. It helps dispel that overfull feeling and possible indigestion or gas. So, the next herb that I will be blogging on is – yes, PEPPERMINT. Peppermint is my favorite herb and was very interested in the health benefits.
Several modern researches have concluded the numerous benefits of this herb. It has analgesic, aesthetic, astringent, decongestant, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties which help to treat a number of health conditions like cold, flu, sinusitis, dry cough, fever, chills and digestive problems.
Peppermint leaves health benefits include the following:
I’m going to start with Peppermint for extra energy. If you’re feeling lethargic, just the smell of peppermint can mentally perk you up. A study from Wheeling Jesuit University has linked peppermint to greater alertness, performance, and motivation by serving as a central nervous system stimulant. Having a bottle of peppermint oil on hand and sniffing it whenever you’re feeling sluggish may help.
Peppermint reduces stress, emotional imbalance and anxiety. Peppermint contains therapeutic qualities which help to reduce stress, emotional imbalance and anxiety. All you need to do is light peppermint oil in a diffuser or burner and relax for around 30 minutes. Breathe in through the nose and out of the mouth while inhaling peppermint aroma and let your body relax. Repeat this aromatherapy for 3 weeks to get rid of unwanted tension and anxiety.
Peppermint can ease headaches. Rubbing a few drops of peppermint oil on the forehead and temples can ease headache pain in as little as 15 minutes and keep throbbing away for up to an hour. It’s been found to improve circulation and relax muscle tension.
Tomorrow I’ll post more peppermint benefits and some recipes.

FAITH IS TO TRUST
Until Saturday, to have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead, you relax, and float.
