Alternate UniverseI can’t believe I’m saying this, but it looks like Trump is actually making America great again. Just look at the progress made since the election:

1. Unprecedented levels of ongoing civic engagement.
2. Millions of Americans now know who their state and federal representatives are without having to google.
3. Millions of Americans are exercising more. They’re holding signs and marching every week.

Screen Shot a Tarot Card (One)

From your phone or tablet take a screen shot by hitting the home button and power button at the same time. From your computer, use your Snipping Tool (Windows OS) or an equivalent. The captured photo is your tarot card for the day. Another option: take 3 screen shots and the 3 cards represent your past, present and future.

There are other versions of the flickering tarot decks. I will post more as I come across them.

What card(s) did you capture?

 

Now Not Later

Legend of Neil deGrasse Tyson

If you could live forever, would you?

The urgency of accomplishment… the need to express love now, not later.

These are powerful videos in this excerpt of an interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Larry King. I want to find the entire interview because I love what he saying so much.

Inside the Strange World of Indigo Children

Indigo Children

Gavin Haynes has come from England to America to investigate the secret world of Indigo Children, a select group of people who believe they were born with “indigo” auras and possess special and supernatural traits and abilities. Though many of these children have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD by health care professionals, Indigo parents maintain that their children do not have these conditions, but are instead running on a different astral plane unbeknownst to regular people. Critics maintain that these children are not receiving proper mental health care.

If you would like to read more about this subject, please check out a book called The Care and Feeding of Indigo Children by Doreen Virtue. I love eBooks so I purchased it on Google Play here and a hardcopy is also available on Amazon.

An Educated Empath Is A Narcissist & Sociopath’s Worst Nightmare

An ‘Educated Target’ is a narcissist’s worst nightmare because targets are grounded in reality and narcissists are not grounded in reality. Therefore, if the target chooses, it is easy to use the narcissist’s and sociopath’s weaknesses against them. Narcissists are addicted to supply and very gullible, making them quite easy to counter manipulate. Educated empaths are smarter than sociopaths and narcissists. Empaths are capable of abstract thought and creativity which is why targets are able to come up with very creative ways to counter manipulate abusers.

The delivery in this video is awkward but the overall message is important which is: Stay strong and get toxic people out of your life.

Let me know what you feel about this.

A Different Look at Depression

New Perspective

instead of being purely a disorder, depression might be a specific behavioral strategy that we’ve evolved — a biological adaptation that serves a purpose.
