Research Underway: The Rev. Karen E. Herrick, PhD, author of The Psychology of the Soul & the Paranormal, has developed a survey for psychics and mediums. The "Human Channels of Psychic Energy in Mediumship and Spiritual Experiences" questionaire should take only 5-10 minutes to complete. If you are a medium or psychic, please register to participate by  emailing karen@karenherrick.com, with "survey research" in the subject line.

👿 A statement from the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Global: "Today, more than a dozen countries condemned U.S. restrictions on sexual and reproductive health and rights — policies that harm not just people in the U.S., but around the world. This is a moment of international reckoning, and it is clear that the global community supports advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights. The U.S. has imposed the Hyde and Helms Amendments to unjustly restrict access to critical abortion access. And the current administration implemented the global gag rule and Title X gag rule to stop health care providers from having honest and open conversations with their patients. These actions are in direct conflict with our nation’s commitments and obligations to achieve sexual and reproductive health and rights for all." [Read more.]

😐 As part of the We’re for Her initiative, Bayer corporation has announced that four health centers across the United States will each receive $40,000 grants to help provide service to regions where there are high unintended pregnancy rates, steep barriers to accessing essential health care, and pressing need for sexual education.

👿 The U.S. Department of Labor has issued a rule that allows all federal contractors to discriminate against employees on the basis of religion. This rule puts countless peoples’ jobs at risk because they do not share the religious views or meet the religious code of conduct of a government contractor. Like so many others issued by the Trump administration, this rule particularly puts at risk workers who are LGB, women, religious minorities and non-religious people. [See details.]

Lie of the Month

Mankind is in need of salvation.

     This may be the most controlling of all lies, as it takes all power away from the individual and gives it to the church/priest. Essentially, it says that all people were born defective in the eyes of their Creator, and there is nothing they can do on their own to make up for their deficiencies, except to beg forgiveness and do whatever their religion dictates.

      Even though it is preposterous on its surface, this lie is so ingrained in our society that its negative influence has continued unabated for many millennia.

      The following text sheds some light on the origins of “original sin.” . . . . [read more]


Article of the Month

The Skeptical Quagmire

If you have read books or articles by those who pose as skeptical critics of psychic phenomena, then you may wish to read this document demonstrating the questionable tactics used by überskeptics and debunkers in their efforts to deny the validity of all paranormal events.  [read more]



Case of the Month

The Strangers Were Lovers

Case #60: Since early childhood, a woman is haunted by vivid yet inexplicable memories, visions, and dreams of being another girl. As an adult, she displays accurate knowledge of the geography and history of a town she has never before visited. This is a most special case because her revelations bring about a joint hypnosis session with a man who recalls being the girl's fiancé.   [read more]

Worth Repeating This Month
"Those who fear death … fear the unknown, but they should realize that they are now in the actual unknown … Spirit is the normal pattern, whereas occupying flesh is an abrupt interruption of their spiritual being. … You are in the abnormal form, for life began in our state, and we will eventually find eternal reunion from this state, so don’t fear the transition termed death. It leads to normal being, free from handicaps and hurdles, and to eternal life.”
— Spirit Guides of Ruth Montgomery
“The IRS exempts approved churches from paying taxes. The income of church-owned operations-from bakeries, parking lots, hotels, farms, and so on-is over $150 billion annually (that’s way more than the budget of the entire state of California)." — Marty Klein

RELIGION / CULTURE
Book CoverThe Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism — Katherine Stewart
For too long the Religious Right has masqueraded as a social movement preoccupied with a number of cultural issues, such as abortion and same-sex marriage. Stewart presents chilling evidence that millions of American churchgoers are being inflamed and exploited by a cynical, well-funded alliance of power seekers.
