Psychic Website Explains 5 Reasons To Trust A Reading For The First Time

Learn About The Helpful Psychic

The Helpful Psychic Clairvoyant Readings

Never Call A Psychic Reader A Liar

Wait For Your Psychic Reading To Come True

Give Your Trust To A Psychic Reader

Psychics Want To Help People Everyday

Trusting A Psychic Takes Trial and Error Over Time

Trusting A Psychic Takes Time and Practice”

— A Psychic Should Earn Your Trust

NEW YORK, NY, USA, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Thehelpfulpsychic.com has written new content on why is believes that a psychic should be trusted. They write that a psychic should be trusted for the first time because most clairvoyants are spiritual people. They believe that they were born with a gift for helping men and women using their sixth sense.

Second, psychics often believe that their sole purpose in life is to help someone with their problems. It is not easy to listen to a person explaining their troubles to someone says blogger Twin Flame Writer of thehelpfulpsychic.com. Even if a clairvoyant’s predictions are not 100% correct, the fact that they want to help someone says a lot about being a loving human being.

Third, psychics are often giving more free psychic readings than paid ones. Today, the internet makes it easy for anyone to connect with a psychic reader online. Most psychic companies today are giving free offers to new customers says the writer. This means that a spiritual adviser often gives free advice without pay. It is not only about the money for most psychics.

Fourth, psychic readers today want to help someone to find their soulmate. It is their hearts desire for someone to find love. Nearly 75% of all psychic readings have to do with love.

A fifth reason is because clairvoyants believe in helping a stranger. Most of their psychic readings are given to people that they have never met before. The fact that they are willing to help someone that they do not even know says a lot about their nature as a person.

Thehelpfulpsychic.com says that psychic readings today offer a glimpse into another person’s life. When a psychic reader sees the future for someone, they tell them what they see. Good or bad, most clairvoyants want to communicate to a man or woman what they see coming up for them in terms of love and money.

Twin Flame Writer believes that life is hard enough to walk through without psychic advice. Clairvoyants give people hope and something to look forward to. It is true that they are known for being entertainment purposes only. However, most psychics take their work seriously and do not want to come across as being “fake”.

Putting your trust in a reader means that someone is not trying to call them a liar says the author. Some clients make the mistake of thinking that clairvoyants are just out to get them. Perhaps take their money. However, this happens in almost every profession.

It is never a good idea to call someone a liar that someone does not even know. Psychics are no different. It is best to trust the clairvoyant’s words to see if they are accurate and come to pass. If the words to not come to pass, perhaps they had an off day or are not seeing accurately. However, this does not make them a bad person.

The art of reading people takes years of practice. Even veteran psychics will tell you that they do not always see things as clearly as they would like. The psychic gift is something that is both born and made when practiced enough.

Author Twin Flame Writer has seen a lot of psychics helping people over the years. She enjoys watching the smiles on people’s faces when they have felt helped and assisted by a spiritual adviser. Spiritual advice often takes time and a lot of practice.

Trusting a psychic reader is hard because a person has to be able to figure out who is not going to say anything bad about them behind their back. The good news is that speaking to a psychic over the telephone or chat means that they have no idea who the customer is.

Clients often wonder if the spiritual adviser is only telling them something that they want to hear. It is understandable to feel this way since a lot of people would do this in order to make money. However, most psychics are not out to take a person’s money. In fact, most spiritual advisers genuinely want to help people.

According to thehelpfulpsychic.com, the psychic reading is becoming more popular because of the connections that most people have with the spirit world. Most everyone wants to know what the future is going to have in store for them. Most people do not want to waste their time with things that are not important.

Twin Flame Writer believes that trust is built over time. Once someone gets used to getting regular readings with a clairvoyant, they are more prone to trusting them. Trust has to be earned over time through trial and error.

Indie Film Composer Releases First Full Length With Southern Americana Outfit Once Great Estate

"Even The Undertaker" is the first album release from Florida-based Tracy Horenbein and Once Great Estate. Horenbein also records under the moniker, Tracy Chow.

TALLAHASSEE, FL, USA, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tallahassee, Florida natives Once Great Estate are thrilled to share with you the release of their first full-length album, "Even The Undertaker." As a follow-up of the widely successful EP, "Saint Augustine," "Even The Undertaker" seeks to build off this momentum and put northern Florida music on the national radar. Featuring a dynamic blend of instrumentation, "Even The Undertaker" pulls traditional folk, and country stylings with a contemporary vibe suitable to today's music pulse. Highlighting this diverse complement of sounds, vocalist/guitarist Tracy Horenbein utilizes a rich harmonization of Southern twang, coupled with a majestic vocal range to grab the attention of the listener and push the envelope of what the Americana genre can truly deliver. Once Great Estate also features bassist, Jeffrey Chagnon, guitarist/mandolin player F. Matthew Burns, fiddle player/guitarist Christopher Ash, and drummer Steve Burke rounding out the assemblage of high skilled and professional musicians focusing on entertaining and challenging their audiences.

"Even The Undertaker" is an eight-track offering featuring newly recorded material, which adds nicely to the growing catalog of released single and aforementioned EP. A full-length journey into the themes of belonging, love, conflict, and resolve, "Even The Undertaker" employs a colorful narrative to tell vast stories of the Southern region while executing rich metaphors to engage the listener.

Looking to showcase this new material, Once Great Estate will be performing across the state of Florida, while ever branching forward. Normally an electrified 5-piece, they occasionally perform quieter acoustic shows in more intimate listening rooms. Amped up or traditional, the heartfelt, thoughtful songwriting and musicianship comes through in each performance.

When Tracy Horenbein is not performing with Once Great Estate, she is composing ambient music under the moniker Tracy Chow. Her instrumental compositions have been featured in numerous documentaries and independent films, as well as meditation and yoga compilations. She was also featured in The Guardian magazine Folk Album of the Month for May 2021, for her solo singer-songwriter work on the Slow Movement Label's folk compilation "Future Folk". She also manages the Neve based recording studio Indianhead Factory in Tallahassee, Florida with her husband.

PetDine Takes Lead Position in Upcycled Food Movement

PetDine leads out in providing high quality, nutritious pet supplements from upcycled foods and helping client brands be more sustainably responsible.

Process Empowers PetDine Clients and Consumers to Positively Impact Climate Change

PetDine foresees the demand for upcycled products outpacing other categories, such as organic, because the use of upcycled ingredients has an immediate positive impact on the world’s food system. ”

— Preston Munsch, PetDine CEO

FORT COLLINS, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — PetDine, a leading manufacturer of private-label pet products, has furthered its commitment to a healthier future for pets, people and the planet by helping client brands achieve upcycled food certification through Upcycle Food Association (UFA). UFA is a nonprofit focused on preventing food waste by growing the upcycled food economy. Through PetDine’s pet industry leadership and membership with UFA, the company can help clients navigate the process of earning upcycled certification for their pet products and contribute to a more sustainable pet food system.

“PetDine foresees the importance and demand for upcycled products outpacing other categories, such as organic and natural, because the use of upcycled ingredients has an immediate positive impact on the world’s food system,” said Preston Munsch, PetDine CEO. “Upcycled foods are value-added products that consumers want. PetDine is equipped to help clients achieve upcycled certification, which provides them even greater pet product development opportunities for a consumer base calling for brands to be more sustainably responsible.”

PetDine’s UFA partnership is a major tactical step in accomplishing goals outlined in the company’s recently released Sustainability Statement, which states: Everything we do is for the health of pets. That is why we are committed to protecting the planet we share by increasing our efforts toward a sustainable future. Through innovation, engineering and consultation, we are advancing sustainability operationally and teaming up with our clients to multiply global impact. We have an opportunity to make a change, and it is our responsibility to reduce our “pawprint” continuously.

As defined by UFA, upcycled foods use ingredients that otherwise would not have gone to human consumption, are procured and produced using verifiable supply chains and have a positive impact on the environment. UFA has set the standard for a program that verifies the upcycled certification process. UFA certification compliance has become one of the key requirements for upcycled products getting onto store shelves.

“UFA has estimated that 30 percent of food grown each year goes to waste, which is around 62.5 million tons,” said Amelia Den Boer, PetDine’s Sustainability Manager. “More consumers are pushing towards a sustainable food system and are willing to spend extra on sustainable pet products, with at least 57 percent of consumers actively looking to purchase more upcycled food. This partnership is about doing more with less and creating high quality, nutritious pet supplements out of the nutrients that often slip through the cracks of our food system.”

Reducing food waste is considered the single greatest solution to climate change. Globally, we lose around $1 trillion per year on food that is wasted or lost. Upcycled food captures that value and leverages it to create a sustainable and resilient food system. UFA is building a food system in which all food is elevated to its highest and best use. By working with UFA, PetDine is helping to prevent food waste and empower millions of consumers to prevent climate change with the products they buy.

For more information on PetDine’s partnership with Upcycled Food Association and how it will impact pet product manufacturing, contact Justin Boling at 970.692.6134 or justin@petdinellc.com.

Multicultural Children Represented in New Children’s Book Series

Front and back cover of The Sandbox A Story of Sharing and Caring

Author, Carolyn Furlow

Co- Author, Amelia Furlow

Our children's book series offers enjoyable ways for parents, teachers and community members to educate our young children.

The world is a visible melting pot of beautiful children across the globe. Our stories reflect their presence and fosters acceptance and respect for differences.”

— Carolyn Furlow

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Introducing “The Sandbox, A Story of Sharing and Caring,” the second book of the series written by mother and daughter, Carolyn Furlow and Amelia Furlow.

In a spirit of love and high regard for all children, Carolyn and Amelia Furlow have created a series of stories which speaks to all children and allows them to feel connected to the stories they read in classrooms and at home.
“As a teacher I have experienced first-hand the faces of isolation on students who feel disconnected to the lessons and reading materials in their classrooms”.

This statement explains Carolyn Furlow's motive as author of the new children's book series, "The Sandbox Series,” which she has written with her daughter Amelia Furlow.

“The world is a visible melting pot of beautiful children across the globe. Our stories reflect their presence and fosters acceptance and respect for differences”, they explained.

Carolyn Furlow received a Master of Arts degree in Creative Writing. “As a teacher, and mother of three and grandmother to one, I have discovered that children are more likely to excel in their education when they read and identify with characters that look like them. The Sandbox is meant to celebrate the differences of all people,” she mentions.

Amelia Furlow who is a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern (MFTI) says she recognizes a need for more diverse stories to be told within children’s books which is why she collaborated with her mother, Carolyn Furlow, to create a series that highlights the similarities as well as the individuality of human beings.

“Concepts at the beginning of a life can carry through a person’s lifetime. That is why it is critical to address simple messages of kindness and respect on the onset of children’s development,” says, Amelia Furlow.
Ana Lilia Cruz Hollingsworth, the winner of two Emmy Awards, states,
“Inclusion and respect for others should be a natural habit in our homes, and as parents we have an obligation to show our children the incredible richness of differences from their first years of life, and these books share this beautiful message.”

The first book of the series, “The Sandbox, A Story of Inclusion and Celebrating Differences,” was met with exceptional sales from all over the world!

The second book of the series, “The Sandbox, A Story of Sharing and Caring,” is available now through Amazon and Ingram as well as other outlets.

The third book of the series, “The Sandbox, You Are Who You Say You Are,” will be available in September.
The Sandbox is available in Print and Digital formats. Visit https://thesandboxmeetup.com for more information.

Dominiqart: The Definition of Sustainability Art

Dominiqart Boards

Dominiqart and Sustainability Art

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dominika Zabczyk has been involved with art for quite a while, but once she connected with sustainability artwork, a whole lot of things started making real sense. Why consume and create when one can reutilize and create just as well? As much as art was originally based on awareness of what was possible for Dominika, sustainability art has come a step further in the evolution of her work, particularly in pushing the boundaries of creativity.

Sustainability art is fluid and doesn’t exist by one particular static definition alone, Dominika Zabczyk notes. While some artwork clearly focuses on messaging, particularly about the treatment of the natural environment, Dominika Zabczyk regularly sees other forms of sustainability artwork that have no messaging whatsoever but instead utilizes what already existed for another purpose and form prior to their presentation now. Whether it’s repurposing, recycling, conservation, or others, the point of sustainability art, as Dominika Zabczyk sees it, focuses primarily on squeezing more out of what already exists before consuming something new.

Most people think of art in singular formats. Painters paint, musicians play, photographers photograph, and sculptors carve. However, the world of art goes far beyond singular categories of creativity translation. Dominika Zabczyk notes that the most dynamic artwork today is holistic and integrating, the kind of style that sustainability art easily finds a comfortable home in. More interesting, sustainability art is not a new trend. In fact, many artists have used it for centuries when they were short on supplies, resources, muses, or more. Necessity drives energy and creativity under pressure, and some of the most interesting sustainability art that Dominika Zabczyk has seen has been produced through in-the-moment pushes.

Developing her own style with the moniker, Dominiqart, Dominika Zabczyk has regularly worked as a Sarasota artist to embrace sustainability art in her own creations and materials. At first, it was predictable, message-oriented, and formulaic. However, once Dominika began to delve deeper into her possibilities, the concept of sustainability art creation has become far more than just ingredients mixed in a certain manner for expected output. Instead, it works as a catalyst, pushing an artist to go farther with the same, to reconnect and reconstitute for another meaning, purpose, and development than just accepting the finality of an object in its last form. And, in turn, the artwork then achieves the fundamental purpose of sustainability, extending the time and utility of the artwork material longer. This is the very nature of sustainability art that Dominika Zabczyk has learned and become in her own Sarasota artist work product over time.

Hi I'm Ken the creator of Cuddle Spoons and a stroke survivor since 1988. I overcame many challenges and obstacles in this life changing experience but unfortunately I’m still physically and totally disabled. My disability experience inspired me to design my gift. The fun simple message to my gift is: life is precious, so don't take it for granted and to share your life with that special person.

A Big PLUS = Throughout the years I learn that my spoon design is being used by the Disabled, Elderly and Children who have a difficult time eating with a standard issued medical spoon. My curvy design make the spoon easy to hold, grasp and grip for those people who struggle with hand strength and arm control. Cuddle Spoons is the answer to adult fun and physical eating issues. So whichever reason you are here I won’t let you down.

Chains of Slavery Offers Unique Perspective on America’s Past and Possible Future

Bible expert Brian Ridolfi examines U.S. history from a whole new perspective in Chains of Slavery.

A cautionary tale as told through a conversation between a political prisoner and a common thief who meet in jail

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The day that Timothy met Paul in prison was the day his life changed forever. The year is 2048, 11 years after America’s second revolution, and the country is cold and dark, not unlike the prison cell. Timothy has long ago given up hope. Little does he know, his perspective is about to change.

Hopelessly imprisoned in an appalling federal jail, Timothy encounters a wise old man named Paul who delivers startling information. “The end began at the beginning with an institution,” Paul tells him. “Slavery started a chain of events that caused America to go full circle. Slavery for one group of people produced slavery for all people.”

Timothy’s world is turned upside down by what he hears. He learns commonly-held perceptions are mostly wrong, many things he’d been taught aren’t true, and the prison he lives in goes far beyond the penitentiary walls. Along the way, he discovers mankind’s only hope.

Join Timothy and Paul as they examine U.S. history from a whole new perspective. In Chains of Slavery, the new book from bestselling author and Bible expert Brian Ridolfi, learn, through the power of story, Ridolfi’s thoughts on how the world’s freest nation lost its freedoms, and how it was slavery that initiated the process.

According to Ridolfi, Chains of Slavery is a work of fiction, but its warning is all-too real. In it, the United States’ past is revealed and its future foretold.

Bestselling author Brian Ridolfi is the Director of Biblical Studies for the Rhema Bible School in London, England. He is the author of three books, What Does the Bible Say About…? The Ultimate Bible Answer Book, Useful Maxims in a World of Empty Speak, and Chains of Slavery. His book What Does the Bible Say About…? The Ultimate Bible Answer Book was listed on Christian Marketplace’s Best Sellers List for Biblical studies in 2006.

Before becoming an author, Ridolfi graduated from the University of Nevada in 1997 with a BS degree in Geological Sciences. Soon after graduation, he began his career as a research scientist and scientific analyst. He currently resides in California where he continues to write Christian literature.
