    The Fabric of Our Lives - It's Your Appointed Time

    in Spirituality

    A Word was shared with me a few days ago, that prompted me to take another look at the Fabric of my Life.


    "Do not be discouraged.  When making a quilt, every stitch will not be perfect.  Some may be long, others short - some may even cause the fabric to buckle but they all add to the uniqueness of the end product.  It will be bonded together, creating a masterpiece - an ORIGINAL!  When viewing the unique characteristics of this peice of fabric, people won't be able to see the imperfections - they will be captured by the beauty.   They may not appreciate the behind the scene workings, the pricked fingers, the broken needles.  They haven't experienced the fatigue of the process - they focus on the end product.  I paraphrased what was spoken to me and share with you this - it's time to reaccess the fabric and process of your life and press on.  There is a masterpiece in you that's waiting to be revealed.


    Habakkuk 2:3(NKJV)  For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

    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.

    Forces of Nature – Changes in the Earth's Fabric

    in Spirituality

    Join Sue Graywolf, Sharon Rainbow Eagle Bar - Or and Jim Graywolf for a powerful show ONLY on Ciracle Radio on Wednesday, April 29th at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time.


    Last week many listened to the news from Nepal; as you all know, a powerful earthquake hit 15 miles away from Nepal's capital city – Katmandu, followed by a second the following day. This is a tragedy that we MUST address energetically since, although the earthquake hit a specific area, it affects us all, and the generations ahead as well. Every force of nature - whether an earthquake, a hurricane, a volcanic eruption, etc. - changes the fabric of the Earth, which also changes the energy within us. These incidents are increasing by the minute and will continue to for the near future - and possibly beyond.


    This fabric shift is of time and balance and as much as it is powerful, it is also very fragile. Sanctuaries of the Earth Mother is getting involved with making those changes less painful and more effective as we use those radio shows to spread awareness. Now we need you to help us to do so too.


    Bring your ideas, thoughts and comments as always. The talking stick is now YOURS! Hit the link below just before show time.


    We invite listeners to come and participate in the discussion and the sharing of knowledge. And we thank all our listeners for truly “being” the shows we air. Join us!

    Clothes that Fit Your Morals

    in Environment

    Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds, Co-Founders of Indigenous


    In this case, Indigenous is synonymous with organic, fair trade, ethically sourced and guilt free clothing. I love these two! The backstory:  On a trip to South America back in 1993, Scott encountered the priceless beauty of clothes produced by local artisans. The richness of the culture and the amazing knitting techniques prompted him to bring back more than a souvenir to his Northern California home. He returned with a vision to pioneer a new business model that would invite each of us to wear apparel that demonstrates our commitment to the people and environment. Together, Scotty and Matt have helped form a scalable artisan network through the Indigenous clothing line that reflects a commitment to sustainability, social entrepreneurship and responsible actions by consumers and business alike. These guys are fun, funny and true revolutionaries. You will never feel the same about clothing again - and that is a good thing! This show made possible due to the generous support of The Chapman Automotive Group.

    Not So Mad Science #HaroldMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Science

    Hosted By: Harold Muhammad


    Harold, an eclectic and voracious reader, began his venture in the world of the written word as a child of 2 years.  Scraps of paper, candy wrappers, dictionary's right through the entire encyclopedia Britannica. Yet Harold was driven to books of the sciences. Physics, Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, he met them all with great wonder and fascination. He delved into each discipline as if his very life depended upon understanding its depth.


    It was not until the words of The Hon. Elijah Muhammad that the essence and understanding of the sciences began to have true purpose and meaning. He said, "all there is to know is written in a book, read".


    Harold began his collegiate pursuit at Hampton Institute; he then forayed to Fairleigh Dickenson University. At FDU the practice of the Social Sciences, public activism, and public speaking became a trusted part of mental fabric.


    Harold is the husband to Celestine Muhammad, and the father of 10 extraordinary children, and 8 grandchildren. Harold has the benefit of having the most exceptional and wondrous teachers to whom he owes all that he has learned, will learn and knows to this very day, The Most  Hon. Elijah Muhammad, the Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan, his Father Alfred Eatman, and his Grandfather  the Late Captain, Harold D. Hook.

    US Election Farce, Social Disintegration and Economic Armageddon: Happy Days!

    in News

    With statements like "I beat China all the time!" and "I could shoot someone and not lose voters!" potential future US Prsident Donald Trump epitomises all that is great about America, if by the word 'great' you mean 'mindnumbingly idiotic'. The good news, however, is that most of the other potential POTUS' are an equally horrible lot, so at least there's some consistency. If it is true that the people of a country get the leaders they deserve, then what does the line-up for the next "commander in chief" say about American society?

    But Americans shouldn't feel too bad, Europe (and much of the rest of the world) is in equally dire straits, both at the political and social level. Someone appears to have decided that it's a good idea to try and tear the fabric of European society apart by flooding the union with desperate and angry refugees, along with a smattering of jihadi terrorists, thereby inflaming racial, religious and ethnic tensions. 


    Meanwhile, there are growing signs that that strangely self-aware animal known as the 'global economy' is in very poor health, and may even be planning to throw itself off a fiscal cliff in the near future, dragging us all down with it.

    A perfect storm of mindless inanity and fecklessness at the global leadership level, hysterial and xenophobia at the social level, and unfettered greed at the economic level, seems set to blow up in all of our faces. Time to sit back and watch the show?

    Join your regular hosts Niall Bradley and Joe Quinn, and our special guests Elan Martin and Bahar Azizi, for a discussion of the madness that passes for normal life on planet earth at the end of Empire. This Sunday 7th February: 12-2pm EST 6-8pm CET.
