Plus Size Model – Do You Think She’s Lovely?

Plus Size Model – Do You Think She’s Lovely? Using the photo below, I ran a post on my fb page about the plus-size model industry, and I received an overwhelmingly positive response. She is a beautiful woman. (Featured image and photo below: Plus-size model Katya Zharkova. Photo credit: Victoria Janashvili/Plus Model Magazine, www.plusmodelmag.com) When I saw this picture I was immediately struck by how familiar she looked. Not that I’d ever seen this particular woman before – but her body, with all of its so-called imperfections, the extra flesh on her bottom, the curve of her stomach and the...

To Forgive and Not to Forget that is the Question

To Forgive and not to Forget that is the Question A plethora of souls have come to me to connect to their loved ones from the other side. Those who have crossed over and those who are in the physical repetitively ask me, “will they forgive me” of course not all souls, but several of them during my readings. What I am going to share with you is that here in the physical people ask for forgiveness and that is a reasonable request. Some revert in the opposite direction feeling that they choose not to forgive. I just will...

Jesus is Not On Trial

Jesus is Not On Trial Aside from pointing and laughing on social media, I’ve remained largely silent on the subject of Kim Davis, the Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk who has turned herself into a media whore celebrity by discriminating against same-sex marriage and going to jail for directly defying a Federal judge who previously ordered her to do her job and comply with the law in issuing marriage licenses.

Those Americans were murdered in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston and that church carries strong historical significance. “Mother Emanuel” is the oldest AME church in the Southern US and houses the oldest black congregation south of Baltimore. That church was built at a time in our history when African Americans found themselves under increasing discrimination in the white Methodist church and the breaking point was when a stable for the hearse was built...

Do you use your Intuition or Trust?

Do you use your Intuition or Trust? There is a difference between trust and intuition. Intuition is a feeling that exists as a subconscious feeling, which is the subconscious allowing 80% of the brain to have inner knowledge.  The brain triggers that what you feel makes sense and provides clarity.  It allows the ability to feel either a positive or a negative feeling. Similar to a pendulum, it will provide you with a yes or a no.  Trust is where you can put your feelings and your heart and soul into the hands of another person and know that...

I Would Rather Die on My Feet Than Live on My Knees

I Would Rather Die on My Feet Than Live on My Knees “I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.” Those were the words of Gorges Wolinski, famed cartoonist of the Paris publication, Charlie Hebdo. Wolinski was among the 12 dead at the Paris publication on January 7, 2015 at the hands of extremists, determined to send a message to anyone daring to challenge their ideology. And challenging the ideology of others was a mainstay at the Paris weekly. Charlie Hebdo was no stranger to controversy or violence. Unmoved by those who would seek to...
