The Goddess Within: A Talk with Deinah M. Khakasa

But unlike some of my other friends, we seemed to connect on a deeper, spiritual level. I always enjoy meeting people that seem to live on a higher plane, and Deinah is most definitely one of those people. She shares her insights with others and is on a mission to…

Love, Loss, and Moving Pictures

I lost someone this week. My dear uncle passed away after a long illness.   Through my sadness I found myself turning to his YouTube channel.
