Photographer & Creator Brandyce (Bran-dis) On Reflecting – Moving Forward – A Review Of 2020 – 2022 In Numerology – She’s A Certified Holistic Nutritionist Too Y’all!

I love this time of year because it is a time of reflection, but for me, it triggers a deeper self-reflection, as it has for me for the last, I would say 30 or more years.

I just celebrated my birthday on January 5th, just a few days ago. With my birthday landing right after Christmas and New Year’s, I began soul searching around Christmas time, while everyone else seemed to be shopping and celebrating. As I mentioned, my holiday season celebrations are spent mostly alone and in nature, as was my birthday “celebration.”

I love the beginning and end of each year. As would be expected, at the end of the year, I usually aim to end a behavior, habit, relationship, or end an unhealthy lifestyle practice. At the beginning of the year, I reflect on how I will adapt to the change in era, time, and vibration. …Or changes in me. I try not to superimpose the prior year on the new year, just as I see ‘every day as a clean slate’. It is a given for me that the new year must be different in some way.

In this year, 2022, I have already accepted that “normal” no longer exists and will never return. I feel more certain that in 2022 I will not be trying to convince others who are on a whole different vibe than I am. I will be trying to connect more with others who are already on or near the vibe where I reside.


I have met such high-vibers through the Seasons as My Teacher blog. I love how blogging allows us to connect with other like-minded people, who have the passion to write, and read posts. It takes a certain calmness to take the time to do so juxtaposed with fast-paced social media.

I Love Me Some Honey! – Good 2 Me – Good 4 Me – And So Sweet!

Honey is amazing! I just had a tablespoon prior to publishing this post. 

I chopped 2 cloves of garlic to mix with my second spoon.  But I’m allowing the chopped garlic to be exposed to the air for about 10 – 15 minutes to get the maximum health benefits.

I’m learning more about nature’s gift of honey every day, God’s gift.  This is yet another example of how I view Health as Spiritual.  Most of the things that are healing for us, physically, mentally, and spiritually, are of God.  Honey, Bees, and Garlic are directly from the Divine Spirit. 

While doing research for this post, I found how incredible bees are in producing it. I’ll elaborate on that below.

I knew of many of honey’s health benefits. I consume it almost every day, but in different ways, and in different strengths, depending on the need.

I add it to warm water, and lemon juice, first thing in the morning as a daily detox, and to reduce digestive stomach acids.

I put it directly on cuts and abrasions.

I mix honey with freshly chopped garlic as a treatment for colds, flu, or just to boost immunity.  This is highly recommended during the pandemic, and especially with the unknowns surrounding Omicron.  When I mix it with freshly chopped garlic, I follow this as a regiment for 5 – 7 days.

Sometimes I take honey in a teaspoon with essential oils like clove, lavender, and peppermint.

Otherwise, I use it as a food and sweetener.  Most of the time, I just swirl it on fresh fruit for breakfast or I just take it raw.

I love honey.  It is a part of my regular health regiment.

Devirusize – Our Microbiome – Our Body’s Ecosystem – We View Microbes (Bacteria, Yeast, Viruses) As Our Enemy & It’s What We’re Made Of – More So Than Human Cells! – Let’s Talk Human Immunity Science & COVID19

This is my chance to not appear as some sort of maniac who blindly bashes “medical and media science” with no regard for truth.

I am quite the contrary as this post, as well as all of the prior Devirusize posts, show. (See other recommended Devirusize poss listed below).

I do extensive research, analysis, and scrutiny of health information before formulating my conclusions. Furthermore, I follow protocols that I recommend that my followers at least investigate as I have, for some 30 years, no less!

It is important to note that those who blindly do what their doctors tell them to, and who take prescription drugs as well as vaccines without question, do little research, nor follow healthy lifestyles. So, who’s the foolish here?

Fairly methodically following alternative and natural protocols for over 30 years, I have experienced great success. My medical lab reports, including COVID19 testing, are very close to perfect, for a Black man of sixty-one years young. I can confidently say that I have defied several medical odds, without taking vaccines or medicine.

7 Days 7+ Quotes On Peacefulness – Having Access To Peace Of Mind – That’s God’s Greatest Gift To Us!

Many years ago, I recognized the importance of maintaining a peaceful state of mind. That’s likely because my life has always been dynamic, intense, and bursting with passion, since birth, I’ve experienced, and been told.

Over 30 years ago, I began a ‘deep dive’ into my own spirituality. This exploration was a personal one, whereby I sought to establish a relationship between me and God. …A really close one, with no one in between, for no one seemed True. I did not want the layer of religion or the church between us, though.

I respect religion and the church, but I put them in proper perspective, with regard to spirituality. I’ve found that religions and churches often deviate from what should be their main focus, addressing other priorities, such as tiding, fundraising, televangelism, and social media. …popularity, materialism, etc.

They do a get deal of charity ministries as well. It’s not directly their fault, but the sources of their funding, contribute to making poverty and inequity comfortable, instead of working to totally eliminate it, making those that they help self-sufficient.

Generally speaking, they continue such ministries, foundations and governments keep funding their causes, people keep receiving, but their long-term status remains the same.

Though these efforts may be well-intentioned spiritually, they impeded the closeness that I needed to have with the God of my understanding. I seek, still today, enlightenment. Beyond wisdom and faith, I want to be immersed in the spirit of God.

Furthermore, I wanted to shape the image of the God of my understanding. God bestowed me with this free will. I wanted to use this blessing to see God as I wanted to based on my journey, failures, triumphs, and ever-evolving wisdom.

I longed to see the God in me, and in every living creature. I longed to experience a multidimensional sensee of God, not a one-dimensional one.

I remember, in early 2000, when participating in an exercise that Minister Rev. Barry Vennard, of Unity Church, asked participants, in a Unity Church spiritual workshop to do. This exercise still sticks with me today.

Minister Vennard asked all participants to close their eyes and imagine God as they would like him to be. He asked that we imagine how he would be towards us? Would he judge us? How would he treat us when we made mistakes? What would he say about our pain, mistakes, defeats, and victories? How would he encourage us through our trials? …And so on and so forth.

U Receive Blood Lab Reports On The Regular But Don’t Know What Da Hell They Mean – 5 Ways To Better Understand & Prepare For Blood Lab Reports

In this post, as with every post, I have done research in advance, in this case, on blood labs and how to interpret the results. I have also provided recommendations, supported by the medical community, and ones based on my personal experience. You should complement this information with your own experiences and research.

With today’s increasing concerns about health, I recommend that you read this detailed post, and when you are ready, I suggest that you review your last blood lab reports again to see if you understand them better. If not, you should at least be well-equipped to ask your doctors intelligent questions.


I am not a doctor, but I should not have to be to understand my own blood lab reports. They are given to me by my doctor, to assess my health status. But had I not done the research; I would not understand how to properly interpret the reports.

In my experiences, only by exception are doctors willing to spend extra time with me to explain the full report. Also, often I have to make a follow-up appointment just to speak with the doctor in detail about my blood test results, and that’s if they are willing to do so.

Years ago, as part of my ‘Urban-Holistic-Rasta-Metaphysics’ approach to health, I felt that it was my responsibility to understand the reports, how seriously to take its results, and what things to do to ensure accurate tests in the future.

Too often the results were given to me as vital health information but often were never explained. I did not know what the various measurements meant, beyond the information I received about those numbers which were outside of ‘normal ranges’. Hell, they didn’t really explain what ‘normal ranges’ meant.

We are not adequately advised on how to prepare for our blood test to ensure that the results are not skewed by our lifestyle and habits days or hours prior to taking the tests. We are told to fast for lipid and glucose tests but are often unadvised on other factors that can skew blood results or cause false positives.
