How To Detoxify Your Body By Using Your Mind

0-753531432-persononswing

The mind — our healer and link to the infinite, the substance of inexorable timelessness, the expansive mystery that travels with us throughout our visit to this world and beyond …

What if mind were a projection of a holographic universe? Healing is a small part (in the greater context) of this possibility.

If the universe is infinite in one direction (outer space), it must also be infinite in the opposite direction (inner space) too. The more scientists travel within, the more complexity, illusion and intelligence they discover. And as it turns out, the one thing we keep finding more of is intelligence.

Some might argue that the entire universe is a projection of the mind, reaching beyond space and time. If an aspect of the mind is non-local, it would imply that we have access to knowledge and wisdom from another dimension. This could facilitate time travel, space travel and meeting other beings from another realm. It would literally mean, “It’s all in the mind!”

I believe that if we understood the vast capacity of our minds, we would also understand that most illness stems from the well of the mind, and thus, to change that “dis-ease” we turn to the mind and its capacity to heal.

The brain is generally defined as, that which is limited to the inner workings of the physical brain structure held within the cranium. The mind is the intelligence that has no definitive location within the body. Its reach extends to every cell of the physical body and outside the body, into the spiritual realm.

In some ancient traditions, each person has nine chakras, seven that animate the physical body, and then the eighth “master chakra” (above the body) and the ninth as the cosmic chakra (or as Carl Jung put it — “the collective unconscious” — that which connects us all to each other.) The ninth chakra would encompass all human consciousness and link all of us together as, “The Great Mind.”

Since we are not quite sure how to even begin to understand the mind, I would assume that the mind is reasonable and yet beyond reason, logical and yet beyond logic. Healing possesses similar qualities.

Healing usually happens spontaneously and accesses the deepest recesses of our physiology, far beyond our conscious awareness. It is naturally activated without choice, provided we support it environmentally — for example, releasing old emotions, supporting bodily functions like detoxification, and providing proper nutrition, vitamins and minerals.

There’s a part of us that chooses and a part of us that is removed from choice (the observer versus active participant). When we engage a deeper part of our awareness that watches from a distance, we see the greater picture, learn the lesson of transformation and begin to embark on a journey towards healing and ultimately wholeness.

Our beliefs about healing are crucial to all aspects of wellness. Our entire molecular system is mediated by hormones — the “molecules of emotion” triggered by our thoughts. Beliefs hard-wire our brains and change our neurotransmitter balance.

To heal we have to learn how to “die” — to let go of all that we were — to embrace becoming a new, healed “whole” self.

When we heal, a dimension is activated beyond what we can see with the eyes. What it requires is a surrendering to what we wish to become. We are the creators of our own reality.

Our ability to heal goes far beyond what most people believe. Reprogramming beliefs is a deep, constant and mystical path, requiring full immersion, dedication and commitment.

    Q: I read most of your articles. Love them. What you say is 100% correct. See for me. I believe that God has put me here for a reason. I have been blessed with the ability to for see things and when I think about something hard enough BAM!! I think of someone and they show up, so in regards to my current situation YES. I did have a hand in this. I keep thinking of not wanting to get HIV. Didn’t want to hear about or talk about it. Then two months before getting my initial test. It was on my mind. Then I got a physical and I was like no going to take this test but went ahead anyway and here we are. Do I believe in it? Not anymore. I now believe in blood toxicity. I am not freaking out about outbreaks because I don't have any. What I want is to know how to shape my mind. Do I need Chakra balance? What can I do to stop the thoughts? How do I reverse my mind to stop thinking on things. I try so hard to see happy things and feel happy thoughts. BTW in Jan I thought about a cold sore and it appeared.

    A:

    Thanks for explaining all that! I think the MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL is right up your alley, Beloved. It'll be up next week. So glad you enjoy my articles, Beloved! You are a powerful person and you will be dangerous (in a good way) when you learn the power of your mind. Peace and Love!

    Q: Greetings Brother, first I would like to commend you on your work and commitment. I am fascinated with some of this information and I look forward to learning much about wellness and spirituality, and then teaching truth to all that I can. My question is concerning the elixers. I recently purchased elixers for the FIFTH CHAKRA and the SEVENTH CHAKRA to "try" the product before purchase of the rest. I am just getting into chakra and kundalini meditation here in the last few months. When is the best time to take the elixers for maximum benefit? Please keep in mind that I have not yet purchased the FULL BODY DETOX kit and I am not sure how this will skew my results. Any direction is much appreciated.

    A:

    Thank you for your words, Beloved! You can take the elixirs anytime you feel the need or inclination to take them. I take them throughout the day myself. Love water changed my life! Love water is crystal-imbued water that I was drinking daily and in which greatly opened up my heart chakra. You will experience great things during the FULL BODY DETOX and taking the elixirs during the cleanse. Peace and Love!

    Q: I am a breast cancer survivor, before cancer I was healthy, active, my mind was clear, I never second guessed myself, my weight was good. Now I am overweight, my mind runs constantly, I get getters, I can't remember things, I can't sleep or I'm tired. My hair want grow back, I can't lose weight, and my visit keep changing. I spend more money at the doctors' than I can afford. I developed lymphademia on my right side, I can't find the glove and sleeve I need for relief. My husband and I was stationed overseas when I developed BC. We've relocated to Atlanta and I heard your advertisement on 9.75. I am open to suggestions. Thank you for your time. God Bless

    A:

    Beloved, there is relief for you! I suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX Cleanse followed by the Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, and lastly, the Total Woman Cleanse. To help get the mind on track, I would suggest our "Mental Science Manual" which can read during your healing (each cleanse, re-read the book). You also may be interested in our Breast Oil.

    Q: I was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.

    A:

    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: my lungs are very sick i have been through h1n1 i have been taken too much antibiotic and doesn t help me any more. i want to buy chakra elixirs as many parts of my body are affected, grounding with earth affected, adrenal glands, hiperplasy suprarenal. I am afraid I have a tumour in bronchies or TB. i lost my thyroid due to numerous infections in the lungs. also i need protection very strong as the woman who took my husband is working on me incantations and heavy work with professional muslims from algeria and egypt. I found all what she is doing on me so part of my sickness if not all is coming from this woman. my husband is also gone in his mind as she is using staff in his food, drink, bed...my question is i want to buy chakra elixirs for all chakras how i will take them gradually started with one or all of them every day. i also want to give to my mother who is 81 and has some problems with heart, kidneys and cortex. can i use these products on her she is 81 years old. are there any risks involved? what else you suggest for the mucus in my lungs is from these viruses throwen in canada and USA by pharmaceutical companies. any suggestion what can I do with my husband to bring him to normal?

    A: You can use multiple Elixirs at the same time. Just be sure to allow time in between taking each one. We suggest meditating with the use of the elixirs, focusing on clearing one emotion at a time.  If you're looking to cleanse your aura and protect yourself emotionally we would recommend looking into the Chakras and Aura Sprays we have available. We would recommend doing the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen to help improve the health of your lungs.  This regimen includes a Mucus Formula that helps combat mucus in the body.  You can also add the Anti-Viral Formula to your regimen to help your lungs if it has been affected by a virus.  All of our products are 100% all natural plant life herbs. We do not use any kind of unnatural ingredients including animal products, gluten, GMO, binders or fillers.  We offer products that are safe for elderly, children and adults.  Adjusting her diet would be the best thing to help remedy her conditions.  We suggest giving her the Full Body Cleanse to detox and replenish the health of all the major organs including the heart and kidney's.  Suggesting the Clearing Emotions Elixir to your husband could help clarify any lingering emotions he may have.   We recommend reading our article - Respiratory Health https://www.dherbs.com/articles/wellness-prevention/respiratory-health/ Product Links: Full Body Cleanse - http://dherbs.com/store/full-body-cleanse-p-1.html Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen - http://www.dherbs.com/store/respiratory-cleanse-and-regimen-p-204.html Mucus Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/mucus-Formula-formula-p-50.html Lungs & Respiratory Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/lungs-respiratory-formula-p-45.html Anti-Viral Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/antiviral-formula-p-6.html Chakra Elixirs #1-7 - https://www.dherbs.com/store/chakra-elixirs-c-6.html Aura Sprays - https://www.dherbs.com/store/aura-sprays-c-48.html

    Q: I'm a 28 year old male with big dreams and high aspirations. However, I've been dealing with issues of sustained motivation, and fear for the past 10 years. As a result my life has suffered socially, and financially. I see many people around me getting ahead, but I seem to be trailing behind at every step. The hardest task I think I deal with is keeping my life in balance, and staying focused with all I desire to do. I've struggled with changing my beliefs about myself and reprogramming my mind for success for a long time.

    A:

    You have some inner blocks that are holding you back. The problems are recorded in your chakras and thus you should have chakra work performed by a qualified (doesn't mean "certified"), and trusted energy healer. Instead of focusing on keeping your life in balance, focus on what you desire to do only. I really suggest that you read my e-book manuals: "The Money, Wealth, and Prosperity Manual", "The Mental Science Manual", and the new "Discovering Your Life's Higher Purpose" (highly recommended). I can totally relate to what you're saying and experiencing! You're just blocked! You may have some vital information stored in your natal chart as well. You need an inner diagnosis performed. If you order all the tools named above, I will give you the consultation for free so we can nail down the location(s) of the inner blockages. You very well may be blocked at the First, and Third chakras. Fear is stored in the First chakra, just to let you know. You can be helped, Beloved! Stay positive, and focus on your desires. Like I state in the "Mental Science Manual", play in your mind! Live in it and miraculously the things stored in the mind, and constantly played out will manifest.

    Q: I am writing you with concern for my father. He is 54 years old, and was just diagnosed with an enlarged heart. He is very worried, and to be honest I am too. I told him that he immediately needs to go on the Full Body Detox. Start a raw foods diet that includes no meats, and no dairy. Do you think he should get a colonic? Should he get it first? He began running this morning, and has been walking in the evenings. He has a HUGE stomach. It looks as if he is about 8 months pregnant. SOLID! We live in the Philadelphia Area and we are Muslim. The only person we know that is GOOD as far as colonics is a female, and he has some reservations about that. My mother always says "Do what you gotta do". What steps should he take to heal his body? In what order? I know it may be kind of hard to diagnose, or give steps to a third person. I am really concerned, and afraid that his concern may cause more damage to his heart. I am almost certain that my father would not mind talking to you. He may be impressed with your knowledge. All the herbalist we know thus far have been women. As soon as he told us of his illness I immediately thought of you. I pray that you can help us. We all as a family need to get our health together. PLEASE HELP US the best way you can. . . . .

    A:

    It's the easiest thing to take care of. Detox the body with the Full Body Detox followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. He will drink Hearty Heart tea during both cleanses. The man has eaten himself into this condition via poor diet so reversed diet is the way out. More raw foods (fruits and vegetable), vegetable juice.

    Q: My husband and I finished the FULL BODY DETOXlast week and we feel unbelievably wonderful. It was more than a detox for the body- it was also for the mind- thank you! I am now very nervous about undoing all the work that I have done and very interested and continuing the healing that my body is going through-what do you suggest? I am 31 weight 223lb, I have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian syndrome and I am in the planning on undergoing invitro procedures the next 2 months. Are your herbs safe to take with the fertility drugs that I will be taking during this period? While I am with child? In particular I am interested in the weight release and the bunny rabbit formulas. If you suggest something else please advise.

    A:

    Glad to hear of your success with the FULL BODY DETOX! In re: fertility drugs, don't take our herbs if you are planning to take drugs because you'd be wasting your money. How can man make a fertility drug when God didn't make NO PART of your body with drugs? Drugs are toxic and do you think you can have a healthy baby using toxins? How can poisons make one become fertile? Fertility lies in diet (fruits, herbs), thought process, attitude, and lifestyle. Have you read our "IMPOTENCE INFERTILITY AND STERILITY" article? If not, please give it a read, Beloved! To take drugs after DE-TOXING defeats the whole purpose. Check out our : TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and FERTILITY CLEANSE for infertility and PCOS and check out WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMENfor the weight problem.

    Q: I am very sensitive. I feel like there are invisible things entering my body. I feel things going into my feet, my crown, my female parts the openings of my body. I keep having serious lung problems. I saw something dark jump into my chest. I feel it moving thru my body, like a snake. I have been checked for parasites but nothing was found. I had all types of x-rays and blood tests done, but nothing found. I am of sound mind and strong in my faith. I sometimes see brown or white oil spots on my car and on the ground where I walk. By the time I past this I begin to have these sensations. I believe this is a bacteria by nature or man that is causing this problem. I went for acupuncture for the problem the Chinese man said something was in my body. Have you heard of this problem before? Do you think you can help me? Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    A:

    Q: I am currently taking Fibroid Buster and I would like to know should I take the elixir for the second chakra or should I take another elixir? Please explain a little more about how I can complement the different herbs with the elixirs for the chakras. I am very new to the chakra system however I understand that if your chakras are blocked it manifests itself in your physical body. I also suffer from nasal polyps and allergies. Please give me a formula that will help me best in your opinion.

    A:

    I recommend you take the 2nd Chakra elixir. The elixir helps YOU to open up your chakra. You have all the power, not the elixir. The elixir is just a tool. A closed chakra means many things and yes, it will result in some physical ailment in the area the chakra is located in.

    2nd chakra ailments deal with emotions, sexuality, and relationships. Most women are damaged in one or more or all of these things which shuts down the chakra energy and eventually manifest in some kind of female reproductive area pathology like fibroid tumors.

    In all honesty, you would do well to detox your whole body ? BE WHOLISTIC, don't isolate! Detoxing helps to open up all the chakras of the body.

    Look into the Fibroid Buster kit as well. Read some of our free articles too.

    Q: Unfortunately, we never got a chance to begin the FULL BODY DETOX because the wound became badly infected and he was hospitalized and given large doses of i.v. Antibiotics to control the infection. After a week of this, he was discharged with an oral antibiotic, levaquin, to continue taking with also a wound-vac attached to the huge gapping hole in his leg. This machine sucks out the extra fluid and infectious material which, according to them, will assist in tissue regeneration thus closing and healing on its own without performing a 3rd surgery to try and close it. HERE LIES THE PROBLEM, as a result of the poisons, he's developed an oral thrush and a rash in his groin area. Keep in mind that before now, he's a man who would never take any drugs not even an aspirin and even refused the pain killers post surgery. One of your customer service reps advised to move forward with the FULL BODY DETOX 1st before I proceed to order the : CANDIDA BUSTER. He also advised to check with you on this approach. Additionally, what do you think of using a colloidal silver to assist with killing off any infectious bugs that may be lingering? He has discontinued the levaquin and all of their completely.

    A:

    I WOULD SUGGEST BEGINNING WITH THE FULL BODY DETOX AND USING THE COLLOIDAL SILVER ONLY AFTER COMPLETING THE FULL BODY DETOX. ONE THING FOR SURE, HE HAS THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND. SOUNDS LIKE HE'LL BE ALL RIGHT IF HE PERFORMS THE NATURAL THINGS AND ENTIRELY LEAVE THE DRUGS ALONE!

    Q: The supplement that you have for herpes, it's really not a remedy to heal and kill the virus but control it correct? Please I believe that there is some remedy out there that will cure this disease that doctors claim there will never be a cure for. I have the HSV2 I believe in healing so I am hoping I have come to the right place as to a natural healing to take place. I am 26 and it has put a dent in my life as to being in a relationship, I was open and honest with a young man but he slowly drifted away once I broke the news. Please help me. I was willing to travel to see an herbalist but I heard of your sight on Gospel 95.3 and felt it was not a hoax but something real and works.

    A:

    Herpes can be healed if you understand the truth of healing that healing comes from the mind. Please read the following articles because healing starts with knowledge followed by belief: please read these ARTICLES: â€GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)â€, â€IS GENTIAL HERPES REALLY CURABLE?â€, â€HERPES OUTBREAK ON THE BUTTOCKSâ€, â€WOE IS ME I HAD A HERPES OUTBREAK!â€. We cover the mental aspects of healing in our new e-book MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL available next week via download.

    Q: Hello Dherbs.com, I really appreciate your site and making these herbs available to all. I have recently had an abnormal pap smear due to HPV and take lysine because of cold sores around mouth area (had problem since a little girl w/these). I am 27 on medication for bipolar schizoaffective disorder, which causes fatigue, dementia, and more. I'm looking for an alternate way to cope and heal the body. I've tried the master cleanse, I fast, and have changed to a healthier diet. I also take B- complex vitamins and drink herbal teas. I would like to try some of your products that would help to heal my conditions. I do not know if I should ask my doctor to take me off the meds before trying herbs, but this is a struggle for me, because my insight and judgment has decreased since I have been on pharmaceuticals. Someday I just want to cry, but I understand the joy and suffering that is a part of life. Are there any recommendations that to help heal my diseases.

    A:

    First of all we would highly suggest you schedule a consultation so we can decipher or decode the emotional root of your problems because the problems lies here. Okay, now for the meds. Drugs can't heal you, Beloved! No part of your body is made up from drugs. God didn't use drugs to make you. The drugs are enhancing your problems if not outright causing them. Give Nature a try! We would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Clearly there are some emotional imbalances that have resulted in physical disease. Depression speaks from the soul. Are you listening? You can heal, beloved! You CAN heal!

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra.

    Q: I’ve been referred to your FULL BODY DETOX by my sister. I’ve been joyfully on it for a little over two weeks. I’m scheduled to finish this Tuesday coming up. Everything is wonderful as far as that flows... However, I have this wisdom tooth that decided to creep out of my gums and infect them as well... I'm in excruciating pain... I visited the dentist... He said he can’t pull the tooth until the gums heal.. My sister has me gargling with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, tea tree oil and clove oil.... I want to know if this combination will heal my infected gums? Is this equivalent to what she would call an anti-fungal? I would deeply appreciate all of your wisdom right now? What you recommend now to heal the gums and preparing for and healing from the minor surgery? And Mr. Maatra your herbs and my willingness are healing me in imaginable ways.. My sister has been speaking of you and your influence in her

    A:

    Nadia has you gargling with some good stuff! Keep doing what you are doing. The hydrogen peroxide will help heal your gums. KHEMETIAN GOLD (available at Dherbs.Com) can also be used as a gargle. This is some powerful stuff! Read the â€BENEFITS OF CARBON A/K/A ACTIVATED CHARCOAL†article as well. Follow the advice in that article! Nadia is an apostle of health! A dear friend whom I love, value, and treasure! A real trooper! You'd all be wise to listen to her. She knows her stuff. A very powerful spiritual soul indeed! life.. We all laughed at her two years ago... She endured a lot... Now she’s got seven of us detoxing... Life is hilarious isn’t she.... Thank you for caring for those you haven’t even seen....
