Jane thinks thoughts women in the 1840s were not supposed to think. Thoughts like: I am equal. I wish to be treated as equal. Learn more...

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...

The One-Breasted Woman

  There is a shrine in the Dagara tradition that falls under the category of the Saazumwin. She is called The One-Breasted Woman.

I was told to make a...
