    Healing Prayer for Trauma from Sexual Experiences

    in Spirituality

    Testimonies of our prayer receivers who were healed of trauma caused by sexual experiences in the past.  These experiences may have been as common as "playing doctor" as a child or as complicated as repeated sexual and physical abuse.  They may have been raped, ambushed after school or harrassed by same sex attractions and may not have sinned in any way.  Would you know how to pray to break the trauma of a wounding sexual experience?  To restore the victim's God given purity and sexuality?  How to pray for the guilty party who used another to meet their sexual needs?  How to pray for the parents of the one in sexual sin?

    MMSRS 61 - What Makes a good Military Spouse?

    in Military

    Join host Dave Etter and assorted callers as we try and define what makes a good military spouse! Us guts do not have much in print on how to be that perfect partner while maintaining the standards set by the military branch we are forced to live with - so, what can we gleen from each other? This could get interesting, heated, nasty, sad, frustrating, fun.... who knows? You'll just have to listen and call in if it's during the live recording time!


    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based call-in radio show (516-453-9167), hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Typically airs Fridays at 9am CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and always available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

    The Fabric of Military Families with Dr. Rita Spilken

    in Non-Profit

    Dr. Rita Spilken said, "since receiving our State of Missouri charter in 2005, we have been committed to the rehabilitation of men and women who, after returning from deployment go home to their loving husbands, wives, and children only to discover, not soon afterward, they are unable to stand the pressure of home life and leave because of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) experiences and/or Military Sexual Trauma (MST) only to become one more homeless statistic."


    Most recently, this organization has become aware of, and very alarmed about, our brave young female soldiers who are being sexually assaulted and/or raped. In her 3/9/2010 article Female Soldiers: Forgotten Heroes Project, Kara O’ Connor, Villager staff writer wrote “Unfortunately, according to recent statistics, female veterans are becoming homeless faster than their male counterparts, and compared to females that have never served in the military, female veterans are 3.6 times more likely to become homeless.”



    According to the U.S Census Bureau, from 2008 –present there are 1.8 million women in the military.
    1 out of 5 female soldiers/veterans have been sexually assaulted and or/raped. (2)


    “Women in the U.S. military are more likely to be raped by fellow soldiers than killed by enemy fire. I know what you are thinking – it sounds too unbelievable to be true. But it’s not”.


    Here, in Missouri, as of 2008 – 2010, 38,000 females have joined the service and, are deployed.

    Healing from the trauma of injustice and dehumanization with a liberated soul

    in Lifestyle

    It is a unique trauma when it is inflicted upon one human by another, or by another group of humans. It can be particularly devastating when a human being is violated by others of the same species. And we are pretty much singularly unique as a species in terms of perpetrating evil and conducting heinous acts with no other purpose other than dehumanization.


    Rape. Murder. Abuse. Humiliation. Torture. Brutality. Heartlessness. Cruel authoritarianism. Misogyny. Mass violence. And countless other forms of anthropocentric evil; countless other types of vile dehumanization; countless other ways humans have learnt to inflict suffering upon each other and upon our non-human family.


    The resulting trauma lasts a lifetime.


    The pain and hurt is even tougher to deal with if we feel like justice, however we might define it, has not been served. 


    Considering how few of these incidents of trauma come to light and how most forms of “justice” are in the hands of some of the most unjust, traumatizing institutions this world has ever seen, such as the authoritarian state and its armed mercenaries, it’s safe to say that the overwhelming majority of trauma inflicted by humans upon other humans does not see true justice being served.


    But that doesn’t mean we cannot heal. It doesn’t mean we cannot liberate ourselves. And it certainly doesn’t mean that your trauma has defeated you.


    This piece is aimed at taking a step towards healing and liberating oneself from such trauma...


    We're back with yet another day in the life of the happiest guy...my name is Sri. I'm a healer, wannabe writer, failed activist turned stand up comedian, and aspiring mama elephant. And I can't stop talking...
