    STR #228 11/24/15 S8e08 "Mr. & Mrs. Castle" Recap

    in Television

    After last night’s 2015-16 Fall Finale of #Castle, all anyone needs to say to a Caskett fan is “oh, you guys” and we’re right back in Caskett’s loft agreeing with “Lucy”.  "Mr. and Mrs. Castle" was written by Christine Roum and directed by Jeff Bleckner.

    After the latest news and a few reminders regarding SFF2016, we’ll revisit the discussion we had back on November 10th STR.   How has your opinion changed, if any, regarding Season 8.  Tonight, we’ll go where the discussion takes us and hopefully you’ll be able to weigh in while PCA voting, repeatedly for:

    Elena Radford

    Born and raised in Peru, Elena Camargo Radford comes from a lineage of an Ancient Incan Culture. This ancient linage is steeped in shamanic teachings and practices. She has inherited and developed the sacred language and communication used by her people from over thousands of years ago. The tools accompanying these skills are multi-dimensional in quality and unlike others, allow Elena to tap into the DNA and ancestral heritage of the subjects in order to heal them on every level, reaching the spirit and soul, eliminating any and all negative energy. This technique, unique to the Ancient Incan Tribe, has been suppressed over the centuries…

    As a child, Elena’s questions about life were often received on a vibrational level, in stillness, “They just came to me from the plants, the animals and the mountains,” said Elena. During her childhood, this same connection existed with other children as it would come to her in a wave of emotion, feeling their story, their background, their home. Trusting this feeling, and knowing she has a gift, Elena cultivated, nourished and developed these qualities well into her college years until she moved to the United States. “Culturally,” she says, “it was different here and I found people not understanding or embracing my ways. I was young too. Consequently I tried to shut out my natural tendencies of intuition and healing. I thought it didn’t fit into the lifestyle here.”

    Elena’s practice of Inca shamanism includes, activating water, Crystals, and the information within them that allows people to clear their DNA. As an Incan Shaman, she is well revered and respected by her peers. Elena shares her gifts and insights, by providing numerous services to others, including individual sessions, web-seminars and workshops

    STR #227 11/17/15 S8e07 "The Last Seduction" Recap

    in Television

    If you asked many a #Castle fan what they wished [the most] for Season 8 during this holiday season, your safe bet would be for them to see Caskett back together again as a couple [united their own unique way] and working together again as a team.  Last night’s episode, “The Last Seduction” made quite a huge leap in that fan-wish direction – especially in the last scene – which the episode can be viewed over on www.abc.go.com/castle  in it’s entirety.  “The Last Seduction” was written by Robert Hanning and directed by John Terlesky.

    #PCA2016 voting is still going!  Please vote often and repeatedly, YOUR votes will make the difference in winning! *Voting ends December 3rd at 11:59PM ET.

    in Spirituality

    Hi, my name is Elena Radford. I come from an ancient lineage, originating in Peru. My ancestors are the Incas. Throughout time, my ancestors have carried and protected knowledge that is now being disseminated in the world. Some of this information is about what they call “Energetic Contamination”. This is literally everything that makes you feel not good and blocks you from achieving your highest potential, and otherwise destroys your ability to create anything you choose.

    I am presenting this information in this miniseries. To find out more information, learn about upcoming events and workshops, and products that accelerate your growth or to book your own private session, please visit my website: http://www.theincaway.com .
