Margaret Fuller’s Manifesto, 1845 Maria Dintino Never heard of Margaret Fuller? You’re not alone. In 1855, five years after her untimely death, famed English novelist George Eliot noted in The Leader that Margaret’s book Woman in the Nineteenth Century had been “unduly thrust into the background.” The first work of American feminism should not have been thrust into the background and it’s beyond time to bring the work and its writer back to light.

What is Prophecy?

These Times We Are Living In There are many 911 calls being made to spirit workers since the U. S. election in November 2016, from both practitioners and clients. Many people want to know what is happening on the spiritual planes with regard to current events and how to address it from that angle. The truth is, many of us are deeply traumatized by the past election cycle. At a time where we were hoping to be moving into peace and light (as was predicted all over the place in the 2012 transitional cycle), it looks as though we are instead plummeting into darkness. What do we do? Who is behind...
