    This blog is awesome! I discovered it while promoting my books–Fast Road To Happiness on conscious past-life regressions to heal phoebias and addictions for over twenty years and Life is Forever–Get Used To It researching physical phenomena that proves life after death and spirit communication under scientific test conditions.
    There are wondrous books available to expand and explain the mind and soul for the adventuresome. Life is wonderful. Thank you
