Healing from image addiction

Healing from image addiction


Dearest readers, As we move deeper into the ascension process, awakening from thousands of years of trauma, mind control, psychic attacks, and inter-generational familial and institutional emotional, mental, and physical abuse and neglect, it is time to take stock.

Socially responsible: How using social media can bypass Congress and bring us direct democracy


Hello readers, I really admire President Obama. He is an incredibly intelligent, educated, and caring man.

The Refuge of a Virtual Home


Hello readers, Home is something that has always meant a lot to me, mostly because I am not close to my parents, siblings, or extended family.  Connection to blood ties, to land, to traditions, to culture are all part of personal identity and to the aspects of life that make us feel important, safe, and […]
