    in Books

    Frances R. Armstrong (Franny) is a wife, a mother of three children, and grandparent of four. A published author of paranormal romance, she chose to share her experiences with mental illness, rather than hide in her home and suffer in silence. It's important to her that the stigma of mental illness is removed, so that people will learn about it and not fear it.

    One in five people is diagnosed with the many forms of mental illness, Frances strives each day to battle the Bipolar II Disorder with her head held high. You can too! For the average person to be well, they would have to fight mental illness using all of the resources available. They are not alone. Consider Franny's book, Striving For Normalcy, as a guide, based on her personal experiences and prepared with those in mind those who suffer in silence or who don't have support systems in their lives.

    Striving For Normalcy is based on her personal experiences, and references from the internet, and a qualified psychiatrist. It is her hope that people will learn and understand the inner workings of the disease, helping families and friends learn how to live with, not only the person who is ill, but change the way that society deals with those who suffer every day from an illness that rules their bodies and minds.

    Normalcy & Abnormalcy bias, finding Balance!

    Normalcy & Abnormalcy bias, finding Balance!

    “Normalcy bias”.  A state of mind in which people ignore the obvious in preference of perfect world syndrome, where even though bad things happen, they will either not happen to you, or will be of little to no consequence if something does.  Those that suffer from normalcy bias often scoff not only at the thought of whichever conspiracy theory has become popular that week, but also are either oblivious to, or ignorant of every day threats that are on the six o’clock news almost every day.  Never mind the idea of the economy not being as good or stable as we once thought it was.

    On the other side of the coin, we also see examples of abnormalcy bias.  A state of mind where every event becomes a sign of impending doom. Abnormalcy bias comes from the constant practice of reading more into a scenario than truly exists, or at the very least, not putting threats into perspective. Join me as we discuss a way to achieve a balance between these two condition.

    The Inner Consciousness Presents - HealingFrom Within

    in Self Help

    Every wonder why no matter how many pills you take your illness comes back or maybe your like millions of Americans who need to take pills daily to maintain some since of healthy normalcy. Good health is your birthrite and yes our modern diets and lack of exercise has aiided in our declining health. But it does not have to be that way, true health comes from within, it is God given and God has given us everything we need to properly maintain that health.


    Thursday on the Inner Consciousness I will be talking to Zakiyyah Lana and her guess Dr Arthur Carl about water and the healthy effects of water on the body.

    We have all heard the human body is mostly water with often exaggerated percentages from 75% to 90% when the truth is Males based on build and muscle mass on average is 60% and Females 55%. That is still more than half the body.     

    Water is very reactive (intuitive) and it responds in kind to thoughts and words (see Masaru Emoto's water crystal expeiment at www.masaru-emoto.net/english/water-crystal.hmtl). Find out how your thoughts, words and beliefs have been adding to your health.

    Actress/Model-Faith Picozzi, Movie Producer/Actress-Hallie Jordan

    in Women


    Actress/Model Faith Picozzi raises the bar for any and all artists with her limitless talent, magnetic presence and undeniable beauty, recognized world-wide. A born bred entertainer, dancer and vision, it comes as no surprise to learn she was swept away at the age of 15 to model abroad where she traveled from Paris to London to China to New York. The Las Vegas native never stood a chance at normalcy as her mother, aunt, uncle and grandmother were the initial, legendary innovators and talent behind Las Vegas’ magic. Faith’s inherent ability to captivate and inspire all audiences is engrained in her and proves to strengthen and evolve with every move she makes.


    Best described by industry insiders as a “relentless redhead with a free spirit and a determined will," Hallie Jordan is no stranger to theater and film. This quirky girl next door with a quick wit and a stunning smile comparable to Julia Roberts, Hallie is also an accomplished actress and producer, founding SMALL RED STAR PRODUCTIONS and has produced several television pilots, independent films, and comedy sketches that have featured her on Funny or Die. With multiple movies set to release in 2015 and a huge motion picture role to be announced next, there’s no end in sight for this multi-faceted actress & producer and we would love to set up an interview to discuss what’s next!

    Who is a ?FREE THINKER??

    The Urban Dictionary describes a free thinker as ?One who forms their beliefs based on reason and science, and not on religion, authority, or tradition.

    Free-thinkers breathe and thrive at the margins of society where structure and chaos cross at the borderline.

    Free-thinkers live on the edge, away from the anesthesia of normalcy and institutionalized control.

    They are not held captive by the  walls of the dominating worldview.

    They do not fear change, poverty or conspiracy.

    If you want to free your thinking and become an agent of change and novelty, there are a few things you need to recognize and understand.

    t's unfortunate that freethinking has to be associated with "secularists", "atheists", and other reactive groups of people in society. Independent

    Thinkers are analytical and witty persons.

    They are normally self-confident and do not let themselves get worked up by conflicts and criticism. They are very much aware of their own strengths and have no doubts about their abilities. J

    oin me Janice Clarke, Holistic Health Practitioner, Nutritonal Consultant, Master Herbalist, Reiki Practitioner and Host of the SOULFUL HEALING TALK SHOW to discuss what a free thinker is,the qualities it takes to be a FREE THINKER, and take a free thinker quizz!! OUR ME TIME WILL BE VERY EYE OPENING!!

    Talk to YOU Then!!! One Love
