    Awakening Intuition and Awareness

    in Spirituality

    Awakening our Intuitive Sense and increasing our awareness? What is intuition? How does one increase their levels of awareness? First both of these ideas do not function with logic. They seem to be seperate yet they are not. We today simply rely to much on the idea of logic and analyzing everything. Both of the ideas that we are presenting here have nothing to do with logic. It has everything to do with our internal sense system not mind. Yes all things end up in the mind but not initially? Inintially they are just simply sense. We are going to attempt to share ideas on expanding to our higher abilities. In the coming times we will need this ability to become enhanced. How does logic work in anything other than a three deminsional reality? This and so much more on this broadcast with Liara Covert and Steven Hairfield and American Monk we offer insight.

    Sexual Assault Awareness Month

    in Entertainment

    Sexual violence encompasses a variety of criminal acts, ranging from sexual threats to unwanted contact to rape. These crimes are extremely underreported because of the stigma associated with sexual assault—and are therefore difficult to count in official statistics. Forcible rapes known to law enforcement have declined sharply since 1979, when they were at an all-time high. Sexual assault can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, and socioeconomic background. It can happen at any time or place. Assailants may be strangers, acquaintances, friends, or family members. Perpetrators may use violence, threats, coercion, manipulation, or other forms of pressure or deception to commit sexual assault. 


    Join us as we use this platform to educate and bring awareness to you about sexual violence.
