Nirvana, enlightenment, Christ Consciousness, many words used to describe a state of higher consciousness a state of loving all. Becoming one with all, stepping beyond our own human limits and rising to our spiritual level which has no boundaries. Measly words created by man can barely describe that of which we know and understand, trying to use those same words to describe that of which exists only in faith, only within ones self can never convey it to a level of understanding that will come on an intellectual level. That however is where the fun begins.
It’s called the “veil”. Such as the bride who hides behind the veil to only be exposed at the time of unity – the uniting of two to become one. Same holds true with the “veil” that each of us live behind as a spiritual being living a human experience. The “veil” only to be dropped when we have reached the unity of oneness with our One Creator. When we reach the acceptance of Love, that it is not just what we do or how we feel, it is who we are. Love is all, it’s oneness; it is the very reason for our existence.
Spirituality has been described as that of which is revealed in the silence when looking within ones self to understand the true message given to mankind throughout the ages in sacred texts. Silence…., who hears anything in the silence, isn’t that in itself contradictory? Silence is defined as having no audible sound, to hear nothing according to the dictionary.
Therein lies the challenge, how does one find the silence within? There’s so much noise today, not just on the outside but within us. We worry about finances, love, family, health, politics, we worry about worrying. Our minds don’t stop long enough to hear silence, we are constantly thinking about whats next, family, friends, chores, trips, health and life. Most of us can’t even hear ourselves speak.
In Greek during biblical days, the word silence meant to keep peace. Therefore; when one keeps peace within themselves – within the silence, the truth is revealed. Much like the varying definitions of the word silence, each of us will also have varying definitions as it applies to us. Silence doesn’t always mean a clear, empty mind, sometimes it may just be observed as a peacefulness within. There is no right or wrong way to reflect upon ones own image, peeling back the layers of what we not only hide from others but hide from ourselves.
The search within is a catalyst for most, if not all along the spiritual path. Searching and listening for the silence, waiting for that noticeable change within. The change begins the minute we opt to pursue the path of spirituality, the minute our mind accepts things aren’t as they seem. We notice subtle changes in our thought process. However; for some this is the point that seems to lead to frustration, and for some a hesitation to continue along the path. A feeling of inferiority, a feeling of failure, these feelings are normal, they are a part of the path. That is the voice we hear in the silence, its not telling us to condemn and judge ourselves its showing us the areas we must focus on and bring into balance. We all struggle and stumble within the silence. Struggle to understand the message, and stumbling by judging our self. The silence can become stronger when we have no level of expectation, but simply an acceptance and love for our self. Loving and accepting of ones self is the ultimate catalyst for spiritual growth, without the love of our self how do we love our neighbors as our self?

Despite the passage of laws in some states banning Critical Race Theory (CRT) from being taught in schools, some educators are teaching other educators how to “back-door it” into the classrooms.
A teacher in Iowa posted a video teaching other educators how to circumvent the ban on teaching Critical Race Theory in her state.
In Florida, a Duval County teacher was removed from her position because she refused to remove a banner in support of Black Lives Matter from outside the door to her classroom.
The Zinn Education Project has collected the names of nearly 7,500 educators who vow to keep pushing CRT into classrooms despite the passage of laws banning CRT in a growing number of states.
While the head of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Randi Weingarten, denied that critical race theory was even taught in elementary schools or high schools, she vowed to fight back against “culture warriors” who are “bullying teachers.”
In June 2020, the Florida Board of Education unanimously passed a rule banning CRT from being taught in the schools.
But on Sept. 20, Florida Atlantic University sponsored a webinar where Dr. Gholnecsar (Gholdy) Muhammad—an associate professor of language and literacy at Georgia State University—taught educators in Miami Dade, Broward, Martin, and Palm Beach County how to creatively slip the divisive subject matter through the back door of any classroom, regardless of subject matter.
This was not the first time Muhammad made a conscious effort to promote CRT in the classroom. During a 2020 interview, Muhammad discussed her plans for revising the entire education system in five steps.
First, Muhammad believes educators “need to get a team together to write new learning standards that are embedded in identity, skill development, intellectualism, joy, and criticality.”
Second, Muhammad said they need “new standards for folks who are writing curriculum,” suggesting they “will no longer write a curriculum that’s absent of identity and cultural-responsiveness.”
Third, “we need to change the way we think about standardized testing,” she added. “Skills-only does not measure success for a child’s life.”
Fourth, Muhammad wants schools to “stop hiring folks who don’t have a justice-centered mindset.”
“If they don’t have this justice-centered mindset, stop hiring them as Secretary of Education, stop hiring them as school board members, as superintendents, as principals, as teachers, as staff. Period,” Muhammad said.
“The fifth part of the plan is teacher education,” Muhammad concluded, suggesting “diversity” cannot be “learned in one class” but rather it needs to be “threaded throughout the entire program.”
“This calls for hiring conscious professors who know how to research and teach within the realms of critical race theory and other theories like it,” she said.
The Epoch Times reached out to Muhammad for comment.
Difficulties in Defining CRT
“This is very similar to what has happened here in Loudoun,” Patti Hidalgo Menders—president of Loudoun County Republican Women’s Club in Virginia—told The Epoch Times. “They’re implementing CRT under the guise of equity and diversity.”
Menders explained how the new principal at Parkview High School—Dr. Jason Jefferson—immediately removed the heads of all departments and “fired the bookkeeper because she wouldn’t take the equity training.”
“Then he gave a speech about how he wanted to ‘dismantle and disrupt the American public education system,’” Menders said. “So they’re making it very clear what their progressive ideas are.”
“Dr. Jefferson asked Park View’s department chairs to re-apply for their positions,” Wayde B. Byard, public information officer for Loudoun County Public Schools told The Epoch Times. “This is a common practice used when administrations change so that the principal can interview the department chairs and get to know them. At Park View, all the department chairs reapplied and all were reappointed.”
Byard also said “there was no bookkeeper at Park View when Dr. Jefferson assumed his position on May 25. Thus, he fired no one.”
“Dr. Jefferson related to me that he did not make the following statement: ‘dismantle and disrupt the American public education system,’” Byard stated further. “I would hope that anyone who would make such an accusation would be willing to stand behind it. Attributing such a quote anonymously would be cowardly.”
Menders also shared how the Loudoun County school board “spent hundreds of thousands of dollars hiring equity consultants.”
“One group is called The Equity Collaborative,” Menders explained, “and while the superintendent of Loudoun Public Schools claims they are not teaching CRT in schools, it talks about CRT training right on their website.”
“The LCPS Ad Hoc Committee on Equity created an Equity Resolution that was adopted by the Loudoun County School Board on September 24, 2019,” the website explains.
“As a part of the on-going equity work in the school division, on June 8, 2021, the newly appointed superintendent, Dr. Scott Ziegler, recommended that the Equity Resolution be reaffirmed by the current School Board. By consensus, the board recommended that this resolution [pdf] should be publicly available.
“In recent days, media reports and social media posts have sought to distort the equity work by Loudoun County Public Schools,” LCPS Superintendent Dr. Scott Ziegler states on the LCPS website. “Misconceptions and misinformation persist. I want to take a moment to clarify LCPS’ efforts to ensure every student, employee and member of the community is treated in an equitable, respectful manner.”
“In explaining LCPS’ equity priorities, it might be helpful to state what they are not,” Ziegler explains. “They are not an effort to indoctrinate students and staff into a particular philosophy or theory. What they are is an effort to provide a welcoming, inclusive, affirming environment for all students.”
However, the Equity Collaborative website clearly states that their “goal is to help organizations develop their own capacity to create educational equity and social justice by addressing bias and oppression.”
“That means creating an environment that is capable of holding staff members in a place where they are uncomfortable enough to change, but not so uncomfortable as to disengage or revolt,” the Equity Collaborative explains.
The Epoch Times reached out to LCPS for clarification regarding what some, like Menders, see as a contradiction in claims.
“Loudoun County Public Schools has said—repeatedly—and I will repeat now,” Byard told The Epoch Times regarding this separate matter. “Critical Race Theory is not part of our curriculum.”
“They’re very good wordsmiths,” Menders said. “They’re re-branding CRT and calling it ‘equity, diversity, and inclusion.’”
“All they do is take the various aspects of CRT propaganda and change the language, change the name,” Pruitt told The Epoch Times, explaining how textbooks used to mention “Critical Race Theory, or Race Theory” by name.
“Now when you open those same textbooks, you’ll read things such as ‘diversity and inclusion or equity theory,’ which is the same baseline as CRT,” he explained. “That’s one way they back-door it.”
Asked how people can oppose “critical race theory and other theories like it” being taught in schools, Pruitt said parents can provide the first line of defense themselves.
“The best avenue is to take over the school boards to monitor and fire teachers who are determined to push CRT,” he said bluntly. “They also have to be represented in the education department at the state level. It’s not enough to take over the school board and have a blue governor. Even if you have a red governor, like in Florida. You’ll still get resistance in the education department.”
“What needs to happen is almost like the spoil system,” Pruitt went further, “where parents take over school boards and conservative governors are elected, and then the governor basically wipes out the entire state-level education bureaucracy and puts in new people. That’s the only real way to solve it.”
While Pruitt anticipates the pushback from parents at school board meetings will continue to increase, as will the number of parents who send their kids to different schools or resort to a home school program, pro-CRT publishers are going to keep “pushing the agenda they want” through the textbooks they provide to their supporters throughout the school system.
“Under a different name with new adjectives and nouns, CRT is concealed, shrouded, veiled, or disguised in the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) ELA curriculum,” Pruitt noted. “With the use of subliminal messages, teachers are guided to teach Social Emotional Learning (SEL), equity, diversity, inclusion, etc. Feelings are more important than facts.”
As The Epoch Times reported on June 8, HMH declared on its own website a “commitment” to Black Lives Matter (BLM) and “social justice.”
“We believe the education system needs to change,” the website states, “and we will continue to use our platform to make that change.”
Members of the Collier County School Board (CCSB) were made aware of this during a June 7 meeting by CCSB Vice-Chair Jen Mitchell, who said she learned of the “commitment” through an email she received from a concerned citizen. Mitchell further revealed that one of BLM’s greatest advocates in the education field—Dr. Tyrone Howard—had been given a platform to promote the principles of CRT and BLM through the HMH blog site.
“It will be a wait-out, like everything else with the left,” Pruitt explained. “In other words, they don’t have to win. The left has a hold of the publishing world, and they are teaching it in higher education. So it doesn’t matter what the textbooks say in K-12.”
Pruitt strongly suggests parents “actually open and read the textbooks and highlight passages and send it out to people to show other parents what their children are being taught.” According to Pruitt, “most parents don’t understand the language of diversity and inclusion.” He posited that, when people were first waking up to CRT, it was because it was easy to find if one only bothered to look. They used words like “white people” and “oppression,” which most people found to be “troublesome and problematic.”
“But when you use language like diversity and inclusion,” Pruitt suggested, “it doesn’t come off as rough.”
“The people haven’t changed. The committees haven’t changed. The publishers haven’t changed,” Pruitt said. “It’s the language they’re changing.”
“By the time these children graduate, they will not be able to read but they will be great activists who hate their families, God, and America,” Pruitt predicted. “What a horrible thing to do to a child.”
Pruitt said “we all breathed a sigh of relief” when the Florida Board of Education banned the teaching of CRT in Florida, “embracing a traditional American education.”
“Wonderful we thought, Florida students will be getting a great education. The entire nation said we must use Florida as an example,” he recalled. “How wrong we were. We must remember that Communists NEVER stop.”
It is the opinion of Pruitt that the curriculum department of the Florida Department of Education is either “incompetent and never reviewed the texts and curricula that they approved” or they’re “undermining Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran.”
“In either case,” he admonished. “they should be fired.”

The “black swan” event of a solar superstorm directed at earth could prompt an “internet apocalypse” across the entire globe that could last for several months, new research has warned.
University of California Irvine assistant professor Sangeetha Abdu Jyothi presented the new research, titled “Solar Superstorms: Planning for an Internet Apocalypse,” last month during the Association for Computing Machinery’s annual conference for their Special Interest Group on Data Communication (SIGCOMM).
“One of the greatest dangers facing the Internet with the potential for global impact is a powerful solar superstorm,” Jyothi wrote in the new research paper.
“Although humans are protected from these storms by the earth’s magnetic field and atmosphere, they can cause significant damage to man-made infrastructure. The scientific community is generally aware of this threat with modeling efforts and precautionary measures being taken, particularly in the context of power grids. However, the networking community has largely overlooked this risk during the design of the network topology and geo-distributed systems such as DNS and data centers,” he continued.
A solar storm, also known as a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), occurs when a large mass of plasma and highly magnetized particles violently eject from the sun. Large CME’s can contain up to a billion tons of matter and can get accelerated to large fractions of the speed of light.
When the earth is in the direct path of a CME, these magnetized and charged solar particles interact with the earth’s magnetic field, producing geomagnetically induced currents (GIC) that can potentially disrupt communication satellites and long-distance cables that provide the world with the Internet.
According to Jyothi’s research, power grids, oil and gas pipelines, and networking cables are the most vulnerable to the impacts of GIC’s, while submarine cables, which span hundreds or thousands of kilometres, are even more vulnerable than land cables, due to their larger lengths.
Owing to a lack of real world data on the impacts of GIC’s on these submarine cables, scientists still don’t know how long it would take to repair them if such an event were to occur, and—just like natural disasters such as earthquakes—CME’s are extremely difficult for scientists to predict.
The research noted that the “distribution of internet infrastructure is skewed when compared to the distribution of Internet users,” and high-latitude climates are more at risk if a solar storm were to occur.
“The U.S. is one of the most vulnerable locations with a high risk of disconnection from Europe during extreme solar events. Intra-continental connections in Europe are at a lower risk due to the presence of a large number of shorter land and submarine cables interconnecting the continent,” the report notes.
Meanwhile, if a severe solar superstorm were to occur, Singapore would maintain good connectivity to neighboring countries, while cities in China would be more likely to lose connectivity than India because China connects to much longer cables.
Australia, New Zealand, and other island countries in the region would be at high risk of losing most of their long-distance connections.
The research warns that a collapse of the Internet—even one lasting a few minutes—could cause devastating losses to service providers and damage cyber-physical systems. The economic impact of an internet disruption for a day in the United States is estimated to be over $7 billion.
While the likelihood of a solar superstorm hitting earth is rare—with astrophysicists noting that the probability of extreme space weather events that directly impact earth occurring are between 1.6 percent to 12 percent per decade—they can still happen.
In 1921, a solar storm, driven by a series of coronal mass ejections, triggered extensive power outages and caused damage to telephone and telegraph systems associated with railroad systems in New York City and across the state.
“Although we have sentinel spacecraft that can issue early warnings of CMEs providing at least 13 hours of lead time, our defenses against GIC are limited. Hence, we need to prepare the infrastructure for an eventual catastrophe to facilitate efficient disaster management,” Jyothi said.
The research pointed to “increasing capacity in lower latitudes for improved resiliency during solar storms,” and having “mechanisms for electrically isolating cables connecting to higher latitudes from the rest” at submarine cable landing points to prevent large-scale failures.
The paper has yet to appear in a peer-reviewed journal.

World Health Organization European Advisory Group of Experts in Immunization former Vice President Professor Christian Perronne yesterday said that all vaccinated people must quarantine over the winter months or risk serious illness
This interview comes from U.K column news:
Perronne specializes in tropical pathologies and emerging infectious diseases. He was Chairman of the Specialized Committee on Communicable Diseases of the High Council of Public Health.
Confirming the rapidly deteriorating situation in Israel and the UK, the infectious disease expert stated: “Vaccinated people should be put in quarantine, and should be isolated from the society.”
He went on to say: “Unvaccinated people are not dangerous; vaccinated people are dangerous for others. It’s proven in Israel now – I’m in contact with many physicians in Israel – they’re having big problems, severe cases in the hospitals are among vaccinated people, and in UK also, you have the larger vaccination program and also there are problems.”
The current working group on the COVID-19 pandemic in France was reported to be “utterly panicked” on receipt of the news, fearing pandemonium if it follows the guidance of the experts.
Israeli doctor Kobi Haviv told Channel 13 News: “95% of seriously ill patients are vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people account for 85-90% of hospitalizations. We are opening more and more COVID branches. The effectiveness of vaccines is declining or disappearing.”
They are using Ivermectin on the Vaxxed in Australian hospitals to make it appear like the jab works. For the unvaxxed, they put them on a ventilator and let them suffer. The entire medical system is corrupt to the core. They are the helping hand that allow these crimes against humanity to be executed. They follow orders like zombies, and they have no regard if they are good or evil orders. There isn’t a moral compass left in these people who follow these orders. They are complicit in murder.

A coloring book for kids.
One evening, we had a young man of eight in the meditation group. Hatonn channeled this little parable to the group. It is simple enough for a child to understand it, but as profound in its way as any material we have. The illustrations are just a joy. The illustrator, MaryAnn Bowman, had attended meditations with L/L Research for 25 years, and her delightful wit and insight add to every deliciously colorable page. A really nice little book that works both as a coloring book for kids and a tale for older folks too. Heck, they can color in it as well! It makes a nice meditation.

Biden administration COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci said that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will likely make a decision on whether to recommend COVID-19 vaccines for children under the age of 12 in the fall.
Regulators should have data in the coming weeks to see whether shots for children aged 5 and 11 are needed, he told ABC News’ “This Week” on Sept. 19.
“Sometime in the next few weeks, as we get into October, we’ll be able to see the vaccines for children get enough data to be presented for safety and immunogenicity,” said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who has conducted hundreds of media interviews since the pandemic began in early 2020.
Fauci has received significant criticism in recent months over whether his agency knowingly provided funding to gain-of-function researchers working at a virology lab in Wuhan, China.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) authorized vaccinations for children aged 12 and older earlier in 2021. Some school districts, including the one overseeing public schools in Los Angeles, have made it mandatory for children returning to class to get fully vaccinated.
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said that the firm, which makes one of the most widely used COVID-19 vaccines in the world, will likely release clinical data on vaccines for children aged 6 months to 5 years in October. COVID-19 vaccine data for children aged 5 to 11 will come sooner, he said.
Federal government health officials have argued that younger children should get vaccinated due to the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19.
“Currently, there are still trials ongoing, and so the agency has to wait for the company to submit the data for those trials,” FDA vaccine regulator Peter Marks said Aug. 23. “We certainly want to make sure that we get it right.”
On Sept. 17, the FDA’s vaccine advisory panel voted overwhelmingly against recommending booster shots for the general public and instead voted to recommend them to individuals aged 65 and older. During that meeting, a number of scientists expressed concern for booster-associated side-effects among younger people and children.
Dr. James Hildreth, a voting member on the FDA expert panel, said that he has “a serious concern of myocarditis in young people.” Another expert, Dr. Melinda Wharton, said she does “not feel comfortable” with recommending boosters to younger people due to the risk of myocarditis.
Researchers discovered in August that COVID-19 vaccines used in the United States are more likely to land teenage boys in the hospital than COVID-19 itself. When analyzing reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), scientists discovered that males between the ages of 12 and 15 without a serious underlying health condition were up to six times more likely to be hospitalized after getting their second Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine dose than from a COVID-19 infection.
In the last 10 weeks, Arizona has checked the voter registration credentials with the Social Security Administration (SSA) on 673,560 applicants.
This is a massive volume considering most States including Arizona typically process around 2,500 a month. They’ve processed more identities in the last 2 months than they’ve done in the last 9 years combined. Is someone scrubbing a database, or auditing “Federal Only” voters?
During “new voter registration” States are to verify the driver’s license number against their own MVD database. Only in situations where no driver’s license can be provided should the State check their identity through the Help America Vote Verification (HAVV) interface provided by the SSA. The 43 States that participate provide the last 4 of the SS#, the applicant’s name, and DOB. The interface responds if a match was, or was not found, if they are deceased, and so on. This entire HAVV Excel dataset can be downloaded here from the SSA.
“No Match” was found on 58% of the voters submitted by Arizona over the last 10 weeks.
A whopping 393,017 did not have a match out of the 673,560. In fact, Arizona weekly processing has one of the highest Non Match percentages in the country, typically between 50%-65%. In most other States this ratio is from 15%-25%.
In the first week of July, Arizona jumped from processing 500-600 a week, to a massive 70,000 a week. This volume stopped on September 10th and is now back down to a few hundred. Starting in February both Texas and Kansas were also processing large volumes each week, between 30,000 to 55,000. This also stopped and went back to normal volumes in June. These are checks on older voter registration applications because this volume far exceeds new voter applications.
So what is going on here?
The image below shows the only 3 voter registrations systems in Arizona and many of the interfaces. This includes Maricopa’s VRAS sytem, the Pima County system, and the State-based system called AVID used by all other counties. The HAVV Interface processes data through the MVD. Because of this, it’s unclear which of these 3 voter registration systems, or possibly a commercial service,is pushing this massive number of ID verification requests to the SSA.
This appears it’s possible this may have been related to the audit investigation.
Below are the weekly transactions for the past two years of voter identity processing by Arizona. Rarely do they ever exceed a few hundred requests a week, until July of 2021.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
According to the editorial, by Sept. 2 more than 30,000 cases of menstrual disorders and unexpected vaginal bleeding after vaccination had been reported in the UK to the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency’s (MHRA) yellow card surveillance scheme for adverse drug reactions.
On Aug. 16, the MHRA published an update saying “the rigorous evaluation completed to date” did not support a link between changes to menstrual periods and related symptoms and CCP virus vaccines.
The document says the number of reports of menstrual disorders and vaginal bleeding were low in relation to both the number of people who have received CCP virus vaccines to date and how common menstrual disorders are generally.
It also said the reported disorders were mostly transient in nature and that there had been no evidence to suggest that the vaccines would affect fertility and the ability to have children.
Male corroborated MHRA’s statement, saying most reported post-vaccine menstrual disorders only occurred for a single cycle before they returned to normal.
She also added that both unintended pregnancy rates and pregnancy rates in assisted reproduction clinics have been similar in vaccinated and unvaccinated patients in clinical trials.
However, Male argues that further investigation will be needed to eliminate uncertainties.
The yellow card scheme relies on voluntary reporting of suspected side effects or medical device incidents to be reported by health professionals and the public, including patients, carers, and parents.
Male said the nature of the system’s information collection method makes it difficult to draw firm conclusions.
The reproductive immunology lecturer suggested that she doesn’t believe the vaccines affect women’s fertility based on the evidence available.
Three CCP virus vaccines are currently available in the UK. Two of them—Pfizer-BioNTech and Spikevax (developed by Moderna)—are mRNA vaccines, while the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab is an adenovirus vectored vaccine.
The menstrual changing events occurred across all three vaccines. Male said it suggests that if there is a connection between the vaccines and menstrual disorders, it’s likely to be a result of the immune response to vaccination rather than a specific vaccine component.
According to Male, menstrual cycles can be affected by immune activation in response to various stimuli, such as other vaccines and viral infections, including CCP virus infection.
In one study of menstruating women, around a quarter of those infected with the CCP virus experienced menstrual disruption, the editorial said.
Male believes an investigation may also help understand the mechanism behind the menstrual changes following vaccinations, and it will also help clear any unnecessary fears and mistrust towards the vaccines.
“Although reported changes to the menstrual cycle after vaccination are short-lived, robust research into this possible adverse reaction remains critical to the overall success of the vaccination programme,” she wrote.
Male called on the UK’s health authorities to follow the example of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which made available $1.67 million (£1.2 million) to “encourage this important research” on Aug. 30.
Dr. Jo Mountfield, vice president of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said the college wants to “reassure women that any changes generally revert back to normal after one or two cycles,” but it also supports calls for more research into the possible association.
The MHRA said period problems can be caused by stressful life events and added that changes to the menstrual cycle have also been reported after people have had the virus or are suffering from so-called long-COVID.
Dr. Alison Cave, chief safety officer at the MHRA, said they are “closely monitoring reports of suspected menstrual disorders” through the “robust” yellow card scheme.
“As outlined in our vaccine safety surveillance strategy, the yellow card scheme is one of several sources of evidence we use when evaluating the safety of vaccines,” she said.
“Based on our current rigorous safety monitoring, women can be reassured that the current evidence does not show a link with any changes in women’s periods or symptoms, nor is there any evidence to suggest that COVID-19 vaccines will affect fertility. This is also the conclusion of our expert scientific advisory committee, the Commission on Human Medicines,” Cave said in a statement.
“Whilst uncomfortable or distressing, period problems are extremely common and stressful life events can disrupt women’s periods. Changes to the menstrual cycle have also been reported following infection with COVID-19 and in women affected by long-COVID,” she added.
“Our advice remains that the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks for most people.”
MANHATTAN, New York—Thousands gathered near Central Park in Manhattan on Saturday to express their discontent with the vaccine mandates and passport requirements implemented on the city by Mayor Bill de Blasio this month.
New York City started enforcing a COVID-19 vaccine mandate Monday, with de Blasio warning that “there’ll be consequences” for those who do not follow the rules.
The mandate requires establishments to put up certain signage and verify customers’ COVID-19 vaccine proof, such as vaccination cards issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), New York City vaccination records, other official immunization records, the NYC COVID Safe App, or the Excelsior Pass.
Participants first gathered at Columbus Circle and then marched to Times Square, led by one of the speakers, Jo Rose.
“If you took the vaccine, I love you. This not against you, we are pro-freedom,” she announced to passersby.
Participants chanted “my body, my choice,” “no vaccine passports,” and “freedom over fear!”
At the rally in Times Square, people spoke about standing up for their rights and against tyranny.
Among the diverse group of speakers, the themes of unity and freedom were often brought up.
One speaker said, “The only thing that gathers us all together, different groups, different types, is our stance against tyranny. When they try to take away our freedoms, we stand.”
Another said, “Don’t use this as a political front. I don’t care about Biden. I don’t care about Trump. I don’t care if you’re a Republican. I don’t care if you’re a Democrat. I don’t care if you’re black, yellow, white, purple. I don’t care if you’re Christian, Muslim, gay, straight. I don’t care. This is a human issue and it should be bringing us all together.”
The crowd cheered in response.
Artist Tessa Lena also spoke at the rally: “It’s not about even those injections, it’s about establishing a system for artificial immunity.” She spoke about how “we are people of love, we are going to win with love.”
Mayoral candidate Bill Pepitone also spoke at the rally: “We have a president and a so-called mayor who are telling us we can’t go to work, we can’t feed our family. Our police officers can’t protect us, unless they comply. Our firefighters can’t protect us, unless they comply … our health care workers, they can’t save lives unless they comply.” He then led the crowd to chant, “We will not comply.”
Speaker Kevin Jenkins said, “This is about the very essence of what God gave us, and that is the power to be free. … It’s about the power of love that will allow us to win this battle.”
Jenkins compared the vaccine segregation to racial segregation in the 1960s. “Sixty years ago, I couldn’t walk in a restaurant because they said I was unclean … Now they’re telling us we are unclean again, not just black people, not Latino people, but all of us. We have to unify beyond race and love each other as humans.”
He urged people to only patronize restaurants that support freedom.
“When they tell you no to your humanity, you tell them no to their business.”
Mary Josephine Generoso, manager of the Pasticceria Rocco bakery in Brooklyn, said she would not be discriminating against customers by requiring proof of vaccination, defying the mandate implemented by the mayor. The business has placed signs announcing its policy to customers.
“I heard de Blasio speak, and immediately we created that sign that said ‘we do not discriminate.’ There is not a bone in my body that will allow me to discriminate against anybody for any reason any day of the year.”
She called de Blasio “the greatest unifier of New York City, because he’s brought us all together for one cause.”
“I’m taking this stance against the vaccine mandate because obviously, it’s completely discriminatory. It’s forcing me to segregate customers based on a vaccine,” she told The Epoch Times.
She also said she is being forced by the mayor to get vaccinated, even though she has natural immunity. “I am not employed by the city of New York, I don’t get a paycheck from the city of New York, I don’t get a pension from the city of New York, so I don’t understand how Mayor de Blasio is able to tell me that I have to be vaccinated in order to work in my own establishment.”

The enemy made a huge miscalculation 21 months ago when it attacked We The People with a bioweapon.
The enemy made an even bigger mistake 10 months ago when it attacked the Constitution of We The People with a cyberattack on our election process.
The enemy badly underestimated the power of We The People.
The enemy thought We The People would quit.
We will never quit.
The enemy thought We The People would grow weaker.
We are growing stronger.
The enemy thought We The People had been brainwashed to give up on our trust in God.
We will never give up on God and our faith is growing stronger each day.
A fiery revival is underway in America.
There may be a Communist behind every tree but there is a God-fearing Patriot behind every blade of grass.
The enemy picked a fight with the wrong people on the wrong soil.
This is AMERICA.
We The People will shed our blood, our sweat, our tears, and pay any price to remain FREE.
We will fight until we take OUR COUNTRY back.
The enemy will NEVER win a war on our land.
Almighty God is on our side so we know that we are on the victory side.
The way of the natural world can give us guidance for our human lives

“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.” —John Muir
Ah, nature. It’s a balm for the spirit and an education for the soul.
It has nurtured a wealth of poetry and literature, inspired some of the most treasured works of art, and moved musicians to create soul-stirring compositions.
Take Beethoven, for example, who is said to have developed a love of nature in his youth, enjoying strolls along the Rhine River with his father. Despite losing his mother at a young age, having a father who was an alcoholic, and starting to lose his hearing at the age of 28, Beethoven created some of the most beautiful music the world has ever known—with nature often acting as his inspiration. Nature spoke, and Beethoven listened, translating what he heard into music.
“No one can love the country as much as I do,” he said. “For surely woods, trees, and rocks produce the echo which man desires to hear.”
Nature nourishes the soul, inspires us to dream, and grants us a nightly magical wish upon a star.
As Haruki Murakami said, “Not just beautiful, though—the stars are like the trees in the forest, alive and breathing. And they’re watching me.”
Yet when its inescapable fury manifests, nature can humble us, instilling a sense of awe and respect. Despite technological advancements, modern science can only understand nature in small parcels and points—its immense intertwined complexity is beyond our ability to quantify or control.
Nature’s beauty and power also contain valuable lessons.
Going With the Flow
Nature has its own rhythm, its own ebb and flow. Everything is accomplished in just the way it should be and at just the right time. It exists in a state of interconnectedness and interdependence, and every cell and molecule has a role to play.
As Blaise Pascal said, “The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.”
Nature moves in cascades, with each element impacting the next. And should any one thing fail to fulfill its role, the whole will be affected.
Nature doesn’t resist, nor does it look for the easy way out. It’s simple and effortless, existing in a state of ease and harmony with the universe. We see examples of this wherever we look, from the migration of birds with the change of seasons to the babbling brook meandering along its destined path.
Our lives also have a path that naturally unfolds before us. When we find ourselves complaining, wishing things were different, and fighting to make things go a certain way, we might be missing the best course available to us. When we can’t accept our life as it is, we misalign ourselves with reality. The first step in charting a prosperous course is to seek harmony with the way things are.
Of course, there are times when something is truly wrong. And just as the mother bear will challenge any threat to her cubs, there are times when we must resist deadly infringement. And just as there are times when the weather grows too hot and the leaves wither, there are times we’ll suffer and must endure. But if we find ourselves in a state of steady resentment, we may be seeking conflict instead of cooperation.
The things we push will push back against us. While we may appear to be in conflict with the outside world, often we’re really in conflict with ourselves.
When we understand that the things we encounter can help us grow, our fear, resistance, and urge to control can transform into faith, trust, and surrender. Our hearts can become lighter, and we can find calm acceptance and gratitude.
Change Is a Part of Life
Change is inevitable and impossible to avoid. It’s a constant in nature and ubiquitous: Day gives way to night, summer gives way to fall, and the clouds give way to the sun.
Just as the caterpillar changes into a butterfly and water can become vapor or ice, we, too, are ever-changing, through infancy, to adulthood, and into old age.
Lao Tzu said, “If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.”
Fear of change, as Lao Tzu pointed out, can interfere with our progress. Rather than fearing and resenting change, if we can engage it with interest and something we can expect, it can engage us with life.
Because things are ever-changing, it’s a waste of energy to try to resist. To attach ourselves to anything as it currently exists is foolhardy. Nothing stays unchanged and nothing lasts forever—whether it be a house, the stars in the sky, or who we are at this moment.
Only by letting go and accepting change are we free to learn and grow. Being tied to things as they are will only keep us mired in misery, and act as a weight to prevent us from elevating. Though we aren’t granted foresight, what we fear letting go of may actually be replaced by something more wonderful.
As Chuang Tzu (another famous Daoist) once said, “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.”
Hardships Make Us Stronger
Hardships come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Things in nature must endure their own form of hardship, as spring gives way to winter, or a storm destroys everything in its path. Despite such hardship, nature doesn’t complain, nor does it give up. It pushes through, and before long, the first blade of grass appears, in an act of perseverance.
Nature doesn’t try to avoid difficulties, nor does it force things to go its own way. Even in a storm, the willow tree doesn’t resist the harsh winds—it bends, but doesn’t break—it’s flexible and resilient. It lives in the moment, accepts the challenge, and rises up to meet it.
Like the willow, we must persevere. And most importantly, we must look for the lesson and opportunity to grow.
As counselor Craig Lounsbrough said, “Without mountains, we might find ourselves relieved that we can avoid the pain of the ascent, but we will forever miss the thrill of the summit. And in such a terribly scandalous trade-off, it is the absence of pain that becomes the thief of life.”
As we encounter hardship, we’re tempered. We learn how to endure, be patient, and have tolerance. We learn adaptability and resilience, we grow stronger, and we learn gratitude. We learn that, without the storm, we wouldn’t appreciate the calm.
Though it may take time to see it, there’s always something profoundly positive in any hardship. And as the saying goes, it’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
This global pandemic caused by COVID-19 has been a life transformation for millions of people in an unimaginable ways. The changes have been taking place so rapidly that majority of the world’s population was caught off guard and still trying to adapt and accept this new reality. Many are seeking the truth regardless of endless censoring with MSM and Social Media. Many are hoping the pandemic will end soon so life can get back to normal.
This global crises has reminded us that we are all fragile and susceptible to getting sick and even dying suddenly. For the first time humanity stopped dead in it’s tracks by a small virus, a microorganism that we cannot even see. It completely alter our routines and destroy our future plans based on fear and the chance of death that is less than one percent.
From birth, our minds have been plagued and even programmed by outside influences. These influences have shaped our reality regardless of how much we try to avoid it. Social influence takes a number of forms. mainstream and social media, government officials, education systems, the medical community, religion and especially the pharmaceutical industry. One type of such influence is conformity, when a person adopts the opinions or behaviors of others such as, to take or not take the vaccine. One side pushes to change what the other side believes much like opposing forces, yin and yang.
Ours may become the first civilization destroyed, not by the power of our enemies, but by the ignorance of our teachers and the dangerous nonsense they are teaching our children. In an age of artificial intelligence, they are creating artificial stupidity. Thomas Sowell
These influences, bought and paid for by the Global Elites, have reached a new level by successfully planting and passing the perceptions and narrative as absolute truth by censoring different and opposing opinions. John Milton said in Areopagitica 1644 “Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.” The influencers are taking that away.
The influencers have divided and conquered by keeping the people separate and distracted. They keep up the necessary illusions by keeping the masses fed on lies, half-truths and illusions which rationalize and support the global elite agenda. They have inserted the belief in the people that the ruling elite are great liberators from the killer virus and all it’s variants, their only salvation from certain doom, the new world order.
Their elites goal is to keep the people weak, divided and preferably in debt, afraid, isolated, and demoralized. Their goal is to never let the people unite; and even more importantly, never let them realize their power. But people are uniting and realizing their power.
Consider, we are in psychological war, the spiritual battle for your heart, mind and soul, the greatest spiritual battle known to man. The metaphysical and and physicals worlds cannot be separated and we are part of it, each with free will to decide, freedom or slavery.
Our power is within each of us but has been dormant. We have been influenced to believe we are from the the material world and not the metaphysical. Science now teaches how our thoughts, emotions and actions help create our reality. We have the divine gift of discernment, the act or process of exhibiting keen insight and good judgment. In its broadest sense, discernment is closely related to wisdom as an expression of God. Discernment alone can bring about a sense of balance between the metaphysical and material worlds.
In my humble opinion, we are at a point in human history; united we stand for freedom, divided we fall in slavery. It is time for all people to unite regardless of diversity; any other form of unity will not last, but will collapse.
It is time to get the courage to confront them directly. Speak the truth and expose lies. It is true that the truth shall set you free. Cutting through lies and illusions is the central revolutionary task of liberation.
We can individually and also collectively, both materially and psychologically, uplift, inspire and empower the people. Above all, awaken people to their fundamental unity, and to their power.
There is a Universal Consciousness, an Infinite Intelligence available to all. When the power of the many is unleashed, there will be a liberation of the world that we have never seen. Our individual mind power is all that’s required to create and experience a kind and quality of life that we desire. The only requirement is to become keenly and consciously aware of the Infinite Intelligence and make a conscious and intentional choice to discover how to utilize the limitless creative power. It is available to you, me and everyone else on this planet and we can use it in a way that harmonizes with whatever visions, hopes, dreams and desires you hold for yourself.
This is how to achieve a greater equality, justice, freedom and peace, in order to secure real freedom; and most urgently, to secure a viable future for humanity on this Earth. It is not only our destiny, but our duty.
As White House officials responded to Nicki Minaj’s claims on Twitter that the COVID-19 vaccine led to an adverse health problem, the rap star later said she is being targeted for asking questions about the shot and compared the phenomenon to the Chinese regime’s censorship.
Minaj, who has 22 million followers on Twitter alone, wrote on Monday that her “cousin in Trinidad” wouldn’t take the vaccine because “his friend got it [and] became impotent.” She also shared a claim from a man who said he developed a blood clot in his eye after getting vaccinated.
On Wednesday, Biden administration COVID-19 adviser Anthony Fauci responded to her assertion and told CNN that “there’s no evidence that it happens, nor is there any mechanistic reason to imagine that it would happen.” He added that Minaj “should be thinking twice” about making such claims online.
For her claims, Minaj, who added that she isn’t vaccinated, said she received significant criticism and suggested she’s now the target of a “cancel culture” mob for her tweets, asserting in an Instagram video that the phenomenon is similar to the Chinese Communist Party’s restrictions on visitors and citizens.
“I remember going to China and they were telling us you know, you cannot speak out against, you know, the people in power, there, etc,” Minaj said in an Instagram Live video. “Don’t y’all see that we are living now in that time where people will turn their back on you … but people will isolate you if you simply speak and ask a question,” she continued.
Before that, the rap star said the White House invited her to speak with Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and Fauci about the vaccine.
“The White House has invited me & I think it’s a step in the right direction. Yes, I’m going. I’ll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business. I’ll ask questions on behalf of the ppl who have been made fun of for simply being human,” Minaj wrote in a Twitter post.
But later, in the Instagram video, Minaj said that when she made the post about the White House invitation, an unnamed official called her back and appeared angry when she spoke about it publicly.
Minaj also said she was barred from using her Twitter account on Wednesday, although the social media platform said her tweets didn’t violate its terms and conditions.
A spokesperson for Twitter told BuzzFeed that “Twitter did not take any enforcement action in the account.”
The Epoch Times has contacted the White House for comment.

The Deep State’s primary Covid-19 vaccine peddler, Dr. Anthony Fauci, boasted to colleagues at the NIH that he has not taken and will not take the Covid jab, said a former NIH employee who claims Fauci personally fired him in June for “violating or considering to violate non-disclosure agreements” pertaining to vaccination protocols.
Our source, who wishes to remain anonymous at this time, told Real Raw News that he’d been wrongfully terminated—unjustifiably because he never signed non-disclosure paperwork on the Institute’s Covid-19 policies. And the reason he never signed said paperwork is that he had worked for NIH’s Division of AIDS, which was largely excluded from Covid-19 plandemic response meetings and vaccine development.
For ease of reading, RRN will refer to our source as Brian Stowers. RRN has vetted Stowers’ education and employment history, and we found no reason to believe he had a vendetta against Fauci or that he would engage in deception; his credentials seemed unimpeachable. As a Level 2 lab technician, his primary duty at the NIH was spinning blood through a centrifuge and passing results to his superiors. Nothing glamorous.
Although he had no exposure to Covid-19 data, he had been exposed to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s hubris and overbearing presence.
“At least once a week, Fauci made rounds through the departments. He liked to stick his nose in everyone’s business, belittle and ridicule people for no good reason. Anyway, on February 15, 2021, about two months after the FDA gave emergency use authorization to Pfizer’s vaccine, Fauci strolls into our department and tells us that we ought to encourage our friends and family to get vaccinated at the earliest possible date. But he tells us lab workers—there were about 9 in the lab at that moment—to delay getting vaccinated until, as he put it, ‘we see what happens,’” Stowers said.
A long, uncomfortable silence followed Fauci’s statement, our source added.
According to him, one lab worker asked Fauci why the vaccine was safe for friends and family but not for NIH employees.
“Fauci’s face turned red. He was clearly angered by the question. He started berating us, telling us we weren’t qualified to question his judgement. If we didn’t follow his guidance, we’d be jeopardizing the health of our friends and family, Fauci told us. He was on a tirade for like 5 minutes, and cussing like a sailor,” Stowers said.
Then Stowers asked Fauci, respectfully, whether he had been vaccinated.
“What kind of question is that? Not that it’s any business of yours, but, no, heck no, I haven’t been vaccinated. And I don’t plan to be, at least not for a long time, if at all…If I take the vaccine and get sick from it, then what? I’m too important here to take that risk. You all are, too—that’s why I’m telling you to wait. But you can be replaced; I’m irreplaceable. The administration needs me to helm this response,” Fauci reportedly said.
Four months later, unexpectedly, Stowers received a termination letter claiming he had violated the Institute’s confidentiality clause. The notice bore Fauci’s handwritten signature.
“I knew fighting would be pointless. I got 6-month’s severance package and figured that would be enough to hold me until I found new work, and I have,” Stowers said.
In closing, Stowers said Fauci never wore a mask inside NIH facilities, only when, in Fauci’s words, “outsiders and interlopers and media” were nearby.
WOW: A high-level source just sent me this photo, says that it shows Dr. FAUCI with George SOROS and Bill Gates’ father among others. Source says it’s from 2001. Fauci identified as man third from the left
In part one, I shared the story of how I nearly died from an advanced stage of an autoimmune disease and how I achieved “remission” by creating a healing road map that addressed the physical triggers involved with disease formation. Now I’d like to share how I moved out of remission and into a space where complete healing exists.
This journey begins with perception.
How you think about disease determines whether you fully heal, stay sick, or remain stuck in remission. That may sound odd, especially coming from a doctor such as myself. However, science supports the claim that your perception creates your reality. For example, people have healed from diseases such as cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, and migraines after consuming a sugar pill because they thought they were receiving a remedy and they believed the pill would heal them. But it was their belief that actually did the healing. This is known as the placebo effect.
The corollary to the placebo effect is the nocebo effect, which is a belief that you should be sick or are going to get sick, and so you become sick. A documented example of the nocebo effect is The Framingham Heart Study, which is the most comprehensive and influential investigation into heart disease in history. It established traditional risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure and diabetes, and it analyzed women with similar risk factors. In theory, since they all had similar risk factors, all the women should have developed heart disease in similar numbers. But that’s not what happened.
The women who believed they were prone to heart disease were nearly four times more likely to die from heart disease compared with women who didn’t believe they were prone to heart disease. This is a powerful, documented example of how negative belief or perception can make you sick.
This power of perception played a critical role in my story. Many people would view my remission from serious autoimmune disease as a good thing. And in fact, remission is usually the goal when you have an autoimmune disease, because it’s often believed these diseases can’t be cured. But what is “remission”?
According to The National Cancer Institute, complete remission means “all signs and symptoms of cancer have disappeared, although cancer still may be in the body.” So, does remission mean you’re healed? No.
Furthermore, the dictionary defines remission as a “temporary recovery” or “to abate symptoms for a period” of time. That’s exactly what I experienced. Once the physical triggers were addressed, such as food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, and heavy metal toxicity, I went into remission. I no longer had physical symptoms of the autoimmune disease, but the disease could come back; I would experience a “flare-up.”
For example, if I ate too much sugar, even if it was fruit, I felt pain in my right forearm. That was my unique indicator that I was inflamed and needed to make changes or the disease could return.
I decided I didn’t want to remain stuck in remission, only keeping the symptoms at bay, waiting for the disease to come back if I ate the wrong food or stressed too much.
Consequently, I changed my perception. Instead of rejoicing that I had achieved remission, I chose to believe that remission doesn’t exist. In a sense, remission is the belief that your disease is still with you, waiting.
Remission is a limiting belief that is overwhelmingly embraced by our culture. As a limiting belief, it can prevent you from achieving complete healing, largely by keeping you stuck in a space of fear—afraid that if you don’t behave in a specific way, the disease will come back. It sustains the nocebo, you could say.
I wanted to be fully healed and not stuck in fear. So I decided not to settle for remission and continued searching for answers.
I soon realized that in order to fully heal from a disease, you have to address the root cause. But the root cause of disease often doesn’t exist on the physical level. For instance, Western medicine acknowledges that roughly 90 percent of all disease is either caused by or related to stress. Have you ever heard the phrase “stress kills?”
When you’re stressed, physically, mentally, or emotionally, your sympathetic nervous system is activated, which causes a release of adrenaline, cortisol, and other biochemicals that are designed to get you out of a stressful situation: to fight or run away.
This fight-or-flight mechanism is a fantastic tool that can save your life in an acutely stressful situation. However, most of us spend roughly 70 percent of our day in fight-or-flight, which can lead to disease. For instance, chronically elevated levels of cortisol can contribute to obesity, diabetes, and chronic fatigue. In each of these examples, what was it that caused the disease—elevated levels of cortisol, or chronic stress?
Cortisol is not the root cause; it is simply the physical manifestation of the underlying root problem—stress. We instinctively know this to be true. It’s why we practice stress management and why we feel better when we “escape” the daily grind while on vacation. Yet most of us continue to look for physical answers to our seemingly physical problems, including chronic and autoimmune diseases. That’s why practitioners who only address the physical realm are only able to help their patients achieve remission, as opposed to achieving complete reversal of disease.
In order to fully heal myself, I realized I had to address the root cause, which exists on the emotional or energetic level. Forgiveness, in particular, is essential for reversing disease, as well as maintaining optimal health.
Some were easy to forgive. Consequently, I was able to transmute the associated emotions quickly. However, some were challenging and took more time.
For instance, my stepfather molested me for eight years. That childhood trauma left a deep wound that I had adopted as part of my identity. Consequently, forgiving him came in stages. I would forgive and then, days or weeks later, a deeper level of forgiveness presented itself and I worked through the process of forgiving all over again. Eventually I was able to completely forgive him and transmute all of the associated emotions.
The beauty of forgiveness is that you don’t have to confront the person, because forgiveness is not about the other person; it’s about you deciding not to carry the burden any longer. Consequently, I wrote a letter to my stepfather. I never mailed it; I didn’t have to.
In the letter, I wrote everything I ever wanted to say to him. I didn’t hold back; I used every hateful word that came to mind. I dumped all of the negative, toxic energy into the letter. In doing so, I gave the toxic energy back.
After I finished venting, I said these words out loud: “I refuse to carry your toxic energy any longer. I command every last ounce of toxic energy to leave my body immediately. I release you and I set you free. Right here, right now, I set myself free.”
Then, I took a deep breath and exhaled all of the toxins. I visualized the toxins moving out of my body and being released into the air through my mouth as I exhaled. They were no longer a part of my body or my identity.
Remarkably, once I completely forgave my stepfather, I realized that the door to love is opened through forgiveness. It’s difficult to love yourself or others when you’re trapped in a space of fear or anger. Consequently, holding onto those negative emotions prevents you from complete healing.
But when you release those emotions, it makes room for love, gratitude, and peace, which ultimately brings a deeper level of healing.
Forgiveness has such a profound impact on your biology that it has become part of my daily wellness routine, right alongside eating clean food and drinking clean water.
My healing from the autoimmune disease was complete once I took full responsibility for my health, including changing my diet, lifestyle, and perspective, as well as practicing forgiveness.
The “flare-ups” disappeared, and the autoimmune disease became a distant memory of a person I no longer was. Additionally, my energy level has increased so dramatically that, at times, my children can’t keep up with me!
Looking back, I was never surprised that the disease was gone; I always believed that complete healing was possible. But I was surprised at how free I felt. I reached a level of mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical freedom that I never imagined possible.
And, with that freedom came immense joy—the type of joy you hear in a baby’s laugh or see on a child’s face on Christmas morning.
I owe it all to God; He gave me a second chance at life and happiness. Many people are searching for their second chance, too. They might not know what that path looks like, just like I didn’t. But I hope they know the power to heal themselves—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—is inside of them. And we all deserve a second chance.
