Becoming a Pure Channel for Spiritual Growth

People ask me all the time how they can grow more spiritually. I have learned over the years that becoming a pure channel for spiritual growth comes down to a few simple steps — and then a lot of practice!

I plan trips to deserts or beaches or anyplace more equatorial than New York. But the real “go to” diversion for me, and thousands of others like me, is the seed and garden catalogs that conveniently start arriving at the end of January.


What is a Blood Moon? by Bruce McClure at

From Bruce McClure at We have been receiving a number of inquiries about some upcoming Blood Moons in the years 2014 and 2015. And we want to say, first of all, that the Blood Moons most people are asking about are not part of astronomy.

According to Wikipedia, remote viewing (RV) is the practice of seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target using subjective means, in particular, extra-sensory perception (ESP) or “sensing with mind”. While ancient texts and shamanic traditions have emphasized this ability for thousands of years, it is only in the last century that modern science began to take it seriously. Since the 1970’s researchers such as Russell Targ have published data that corroborates perceiving information in non-local ways.
