Investor Or Landlord – Which One Am I?

Most investors think of properties in terms of gaining a profit rather quickly. But what happens to the investor who cannot sell a property due to the market conditions. Plan B would be to use the property as an income producer and lease it to a tenant. When becoming a landlord, your first responsibility is to understand and abide by the state landlord tenant laws. These laws dictate the rights that the landlord and tenant have as well as some very specific rules regarding deposits, repairs, and requests. These laws actually dictate portions of the written lease. Always give the tenant a copy of the state laws. Meticulously screen your applicants. Along with verification of employment, running a comprehensive criminal background check is highly recommended. Previous rental history is also helpful along with a credit history. The same system should be used for each applicant to avoid mistakes and possibly the accusation of discrimination. If you are not using a property management company, you will need to use a residential lease. Make sure the lease you are using is specific to the state where the property is located. A lease for a home in New York will do no good if the home is located in California. State laws widely vary. Keep detailed records of everything. Keep all original records. Make copies of checks received and always have the...

Swollen Glands, Purging and Your Bulimia

Often when a bulimia sufferer is on the path of recovery, the most distressing sight to witness is the swollen face. Especially when working on bulimia recovery with a resolve to stop vomiting, noticing the swollen glands brings the sufferer back to throwing up in an attempt to bring the swollen neck glands back down. Often this high motivation to beat bulimia is sabotaged by continually developing swollen glands, which makes recovery very difficult. If this is the vicious cycle you can relate to, then there are things you can do to regain a sense of health, well-being and your usual face shape and form. In an ordinary person, any form of gland swelling is usually a normal body response to an injury, infection, disease or abnormal growth of this area. Unlike an infection of the glands where a response to a course of antibiotics would flush out any bacterial invasion – facial swelling in the cheek and jaw regions due to bulimia is NOT curable using conventional medicines. The simple fact is as long as a person with bulimic tendencies continues to throw-up; she or he will always have signs of swelling in the facial area. Vomiting damages the gland tissue by constant attack from the stomach acids. Swelling is a normal defense reaction to healing any irritation caused by vomiting. Most of this swelling is simply water...

Qigong For Energetic Protection

Qigong is, according to Merriam-Webster online, “an ancient Chinese healing art involving meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises.” Later in this post I am going to give you a Qigong standing meditation that will allow you to boost your energetic protection from unwanted external influences (whether they be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual pathogenic factors). Qi is a term that has no equivalent term in English. The Chinese character for Qi looks like a grain of rice in a pot that is boiling while steam is lifting the pot’s lid. This gives us some idea as to the qualities of Qi. Qi provides sustenance, like rice. It is also active and upward-moving like steam. It is also hard to grasp like steam. So, although Qi is often thought of as “energy” this is a poor translation, for Qi is mote truly a highly rarefied form of matter. The word Gong (as in Gong Fu) means “accomplishment,” “skill” or “work.” So Qigong is simply “working with the Qi.” If you are feeling under attack from energy outside of yourself, Qigong practice should help. It could be that you work in an environment where you are at increased risk of catching an airborne infections such a s the common cold or flu. Perhaps you have a boss or co-worker that invades your sense of space and personal boundaries. Perhaps you work...
