    MIRACLE MANIFESTING MONDAYS - Vegan, Staycation, Recipe, More

    in Spirituality

       What kind of food do you eat?  Are you super healthy?  Would you like the possibility of being so?


     


         We all know we're all unique.  We also are made of the same stuff in terms of energy, Light, atoms, and the like, yet some people spur themselves on while others linger about.  This can be explained by soul age, conditioning, astrology, background, consciousness, and so many other factors.


        Let's also take a look at food intake and how that affects us, plus our global addiction to doing things however we do them, whether this method supports us or not.  What are any of us afraid of?  How do we deal with that disquiet?  How can you benefit?
