Today is International Nurses Week - News
2021 Theme: Nurses: A Voice to Lead

The weeklong celebration begins on May 6, which is National Nurses Day, and runs through May 12 - Florence Nightingale's birthday.

I have probably read more nurses than doctors during my 30+ year career as a psychic reader. These are people who give from the heart. They are tired and often broken by the long hours and political bureaucracy they face in many of the hospitals, clinics, and health facilities where they work. We all know about their amazing sacrifice over the past 14 months of Covid. We honor them and their service to their communities.

Mystery Airship of 1896

Mystery airships or phantom airships are a class of unidentified flying objects best known from a series of newspaper reports originating in the western United States and spreading east during late 1896 and early 1897. According to researcher Jerome Clark, airship sightings were reported worldwide during the 1880s and 1890s. Mystery airship reports are seen as a cultural predecessor to modern claims of extraterrestrial-piloted flying saucer-style UFOs. Typical airship reports involved night time sightings of unidentified lights, but more detailed accounts reported ships comparable to a dirigible. Reports of the alleged crewmen and pilots usually described them as human-looking, although sometimes the crew claimed to be from Mars. It was popularly believed that the mystery airships were the product of some inventor or genius who was not ready to make knowledge of his creation public. For example, Thomas Edison was so widely speculated to be the mind behind the alleged airships that in 1897 he was forced to issue a strongly worded statement denying his responsibility.

We experience and learn in the hourglass (our class) of Time if not we would not exist at all.

World Press Freedom Day - News and Videos - Freedom of the Press

The press has changed through the decades certainly within the framework of social media and the Internet. People often question the validity of what they read based on external factors that have proven what you read is not always the truth specially as most of reality is subjective. I always appreciate technology that takes us into surveillance to substantiate the facts if possible. We are lucky enough to live in a country that allows freedom of the press but there are still a lot of questions about who really controls what people publish and read. Everything is political and drama.

Paranormal Day - Unexplained Phenomena - Psychic Development

It is not always easy to explain some of the things that occur in the world of the paranormal. It's a broad spectrum of unexplained events - sometimes called miracles, manifestations, messages from the other side, etc. which makes us question the laws of physics. It's all built into the equation of our reality that allows us to quest for the answers that go beyond third dimension - to believe that there is more. Science can help define some of the things people experience but certainly not everything. At the end of the day it's all projected illusion in the simulation we call our reality.
