    The Donner Party Past-Life Regression

    in Spirituality

    On April 16, 1846, nine covered wagons left Springfield, Illinois on the 2500 mile journey to California, in what would become one of the greatest tragedies in the history of westward migration. Dick regressed a 51-year-old woman back to a past-life where she found herself as a little girl at the age of 10. She and many others were trapped in snow drifts at the Donner Pass in California. 

    Living off the bodies of those that died along the path to Sutter’s Fort, the survivors were reduced to seven by the time they reached safety on the western side of the mountains on January 19, 1847. Only two of the ten men survived, including William Eddy and William Foster, but all five women lived through the journey. Of the eight dead, seven had been cannibalized. Immediately messages were dispatched to neighboring settlements as area residents rallied to save the rest of the Donner Party.

    WEN| Role of Women in Conflict Negotiation and Peaceful Community Settlements

    in Radio

    Recent killings in black communities worldwide, especially in South Sudan, reveal black on black crime is becoming a nuisance even in our backyards here in America and in 2014, "the death tolls are huge and the individual incidents gruesome. One estimate says nearly 10,000 people have been killed in South Sudan in a month of warfare, while in neighboring central African Republic combatants in Muslim vs Christian battles have reported a significant amount of children casualties). The articles say that "compared to decades past, Africa and its people are suffering from fewer conflicts today, but several recent outbreaks are cause for concern" and I say "were people of African ancestry always like this? What happened to Ubuntu, or peace chants of the African people? Or could it have been the case of who gave these people the ammunition and weapons of mass destruction and these weapons ending up in the wrong hands? We know women have played a huge role in bringing solutions, such as the Aba women riot in 1929. However, could the approach they used be considered peaceful? Should it be used today or should explore other traditional practices used?


    We believe certain African traditional practices can be applied in our communities today and used to deal with conflicts today .i.e., Bokom-Haram, South Sudan situations. Black on Black crime in America, African American and Black immigrant relationships, relationships among our kind here in America. What do you think?

    The Fourth Power with host Nick Nash

    in Poetry

    Join Nick for another installment of his poetic epics, The Fourth Power, in his continuing journeys into otherworld.

    Battles are raging in the astral realms, while in one reality on earth, a transition of the yugas is about to transpire. Entire settlements of astral entities have disappeared and the path leads to a hellish world of created beings, who are using an illegal tryst to launch their soul harvests. The Aeons respond to an arbitration request and send one of their agents to unravel the enormous puzzle, for on the Earth, the World Teacher has appeared, and there is clear evidence uncovered of a strange collusion between the hell realm and those bent on fully enslaving humanity. In a daring move, Vishnu's physical host is assassinated, even as the kings of Agartha and Shamballa, as well as Lord Kalki, are readying their forces for battle. But prophecy requires 4 Horsemen... who, among the gods and goddesses, has the integrity and wisdom to be The Fourth Power?

    Because of the complexity of the characters involved and the role they play in what some claim is happening right now - we are on the cusp of Satya Yuga - he'll be exploring not only their history but their context as well, within a much larger picture. While the idea of a new golden age is enticing, as detailed in sacred Hindu texts, Nick will explore whether this "end times" scenario is idyllic. There may well be some hidden costs to this new "freedom".
