  • Jon William Lopez~Author/Artist/Spiritual Counselor

    in Paranormal

    JON WILLIAM LOPEZ Jon William Lopez is a student of New Thought spirituality, metaphysics, and a professional licensed spiritual counselor and prayer practitioner with the Centers for Spiritual Living. A cartoon animator, illustrator and professional photographer, his career spans over 40 years, during which he worked at Disney Feature Animation, Dreamworks SKG, Turner Feature Animation, Film Roman (for 3 seasons of “The Simpsons”) and dozens of other studios and production houses. He has exhibited and sold his photography in New Mexico where he and his partner co-owned an art gallery, Morning Calm Gallery. He was born and raised in Puerto Rico and has also lived in Michigan, Brazil, New York, Texas, Georgia and New Mexico. He and his partner also taught English for a year in South Korea. Always interested in metaphysics, Lopez was introduced to New Thought ideas in the mid-1980s and has since had direct personal experience with the spiritual principles that beliefs, thoughts and words create reality, and that there is one Universal Mind and Intelligence of which we are a part and can use in our daily life. Using these principles, Jon has, along with attracting his life partner (now his spouse), manifested his dream job, increased financial prosperity.  He is author of a book, “Perfect Praying: 5 Simple Steps That Make Prayers Work.” Though not raised in any formal religion, Jon has always had a keen interest in and fascination for metaphysics, spirituality, the paranormal and UFOs. In the 1980s, while living in Brooklyn, NY, he had a lucid, out-of-body experience involving UFOs, so vivid and real, he remembers it as though it happened yesterday. His favorite movie of all time is “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, which he has seen more times than he will ever disclose. He and his spouse now live in retired bliss in Tucson, Az, where he continues his photography and spiritual practice.

  • Spirit Box Session: Reaching Out To The Nine Dyatlov Pass Incident Hikers

    in Paranormal

    Friday, November 27th  10pm ET / 9pm CT / 7pm PT
    Out of all the unexplained mysteries in the world this one is one of the strangest. The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event that resulted in the deaths of nine hikers in the northern Ural Mountains on the night of February 2, 1959.
    Investigators determined that the skiers had torn their tents from the inside out in order to escape from an apparent threat. They fled the campsite, some of them barefoot, under heavy snowfall. Although the bodies showed no signs of struggle, such as contusions, two victims had fractured skulls and broken ribs. Soviet authorities determined that an "unknown compelling force" had caused the deaths. Due to the lack of survivors, the chronology of events remains uncertain, although several theories exist, some involving a possible avalanche, a military accident, or a hostile encounter with extraterrestrial life. What really happened during to the skiers that night?
    Anthony and Luci will try and reach out and communicate with the hikers on the spirit box and hope to receive some answers.Join us as we embark on what will be an amazing experience for everyone!

  • Big Pharma has the upper hand 'and they know it' - Richard Isaacs MD

    in Blogs

    Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition chair Libby Burgess, who led a campaign for the public funding of breast cancer drug Herceptin, said the problem was the Pharmac model.
    She cited Australia, where two separate bodies took care of funding decisions and then purchase of the medicines respectively.                                              
    "All of that happens under one roof in Pharmac, which means its very easy for one part of the process to compromise another."
    MidCentral DHB Oncologist Dr Richard Isaacs said the prices big pharma was charging was "gobsmacking".
    "There's been a lot of criticism of Pharmac over the years, and I was involved in advocating for Herceptin, but I strongly believe now there needs to be a strong focus on the costs that pharma are charging when they introduce new targeted therapies into the market.

  • PSHRadio speak to R.A.P.P.

    in Paranormal

        We are Researchers of Anomalous and Paranormal Phenomenon (R.A.P.P.) We come from different parts of the country, but we all live in Tennessee where we investigate many local haunts. We dwell in the gray wasteland between closed-minded skeptics and mindless believers. We don't believe that everything that goes bump in the night is a ghost nor do we think that every bit of paranormal phenomenon reported can be explained away with basic psychology or current scientific explanations? Our goal as paranormal investigator isn't to prove that ghosts exists, but to document events, look at the phenomenon in a logical way and to turn the subject of ghosts into something that is believed by many and ridiculed by few.

Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is n Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling he world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Maybe your browser history shows you're bidding on a Star Wars action figure or a lamppost for your Lionel train layout.
