I had been reading about the real-life crucifixions as part of the Lenten rites all over the Philippines, Cutud, especially, and had wanted to see one for myself for the solemnity, the drama, the stories behind the penitents for mortifying their flesh as an act of contrition every Good Friday.

8 Astral Projection Techniques (and Why It Isn’t Scary)

Now, let me clear a few things up first. Astral projection or Out-of-Body Experience (OOBE) is not an “ability” or a “talent,” but a natural occurring phenomenon. It happens to almost anybody, whether they’re aware of it or not, and doesn’t always manifest as you floating in the air looking at yourself lying down on the bed. Generally, astral projecting is safe and harmless, unless of course you choose to do something incredibly stupid like astral project in a haunted house.

A New Moon Thanksgiving Concert with Lee Grane

After everyone had finished eating and settled down, Lee came up to the stage and started playing. How have I never heard of this woman before? What rock was I living under?! Her voice is amaaaazing! And all her original songs are about (or written under) full moons, which if you believe in angels and muses, is pretty special. Her rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah is probably one of my favorites.
