In his youth, Tyler Perry was poor, abused, homeless, and suicidal. Today, he's worth at least $400 million. In 20 years, the actor, writer, and producer went from sleeping in a car to bedding down in a Beverly Hills mansion. Few of us have faced the daunting challenges that Perry did. Nor have we gotten so rich. How he made the leap from poverty to fortune offers career and financial lessons for anyone.
Perry's life got off to a rocky start. One of four children, he grew up poor in a shotgun house in New Orleans. His father beat him, others sexually abused him. Perry even attempted suicide as a teenager. In 1991, Perry heard Oprah Winfrey on television saying that writing things down can be cathartic.
We live in a society that is constantly reaching for the next level of peak health and appearance, using only naturally effective methods.
No pressure, right?
Despite this never-ending climb, one little plant is paving the way for people to reach their health and wellness goals: hemp. Hemp oil is a nutty and flavorful oil that is extracted from the stalks or seeds of the hemp plant. There are different uses for each type of hemp oil, each offering its own array of uses and unique wellness benefits.
Three powerful uses for hemp
Hemp oil’s benefits are so bountiful and unmistakable that scientists studied it in-depth even while it was banned in most of society, including the U.S. Thankfully, the 2018 Farm Bill completely cleared the air and legitimized hemp’s legality by separating it from its notorious cousin, marijuana. Both are from the cannabis family, but hemp doesn’t get you high.
There’s no doubt more benefits will be discovered, but for now, let’s jump into what hemp oil has already proven.
My guides teach that in following Universal law (not always listed as a separate and specific law) we find harmony, happiness or dysfunction and unhappiness not in our chosen partner but in the actual relationship.
As humans, and most especially females or those with more female energy and characteristics, we tend to attach our potential for happiness upon a person. As a relationship progresses we become more and more “attached” and as we become at risk for losing our self-identity we also make the mistake of placing all of our hopes or aspirations for happiness upon one individual. If we are receiving attention and our partner is making efforts that support the commitment to the relationship, we can idolize such a person and over time we develop the belief system that our specific partner or one specific person holds the keys to our life’s happiness or unhappiness.

Dating back over 5000 years, yoga is considered by many to be the oldest defined practice of self-development. The methods of classical yoga include ethical disciplines, physical postures, breathing control and meditation. Traditionally an Eastern practice, it’s now becoming popular in the West. In fact, many companies, especially in Britain, are seeing the benefits of yoga, recognizing that relaxed workers are healthier and more creative, and are sponsoring yoga fitness programs.
Many studies have found that a little yoga in the morning, at night, or even on a lunch break, can minimize stress and increase productivity. It is believed that yoga is so effective for stress relief because, aside from the physical benefits that yoga brings, it encourages a good mood, an increase in mindfulness, and a healthy dose of self-compassion.
