Nearly 8 Billion People Could Soon Die from Normal!


Experts agree that over the past 20 centuries, people have been exposed to higher and higher doses of Normal from conception to the grave.  Over the centuries there have been numerous iterations of the dis-ease. Subsequently, the escalating spread and potency of the disease has lead to billions of deaths across the globe.

So what is "Normal" and where did it come from? Scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, priests and the average Joe have been asking this question for centuries. Though most can't agree on what Normal is, nor, why it is so pervasive,  most people on the planet have been exposed to Normal to some degree. As a result, most have also experienced its potentially harmful impact on humanity. In some remote parts of the globe people have escaped the potentially debilitating impact of the dis-ease.  Most, however, have been affected by the pervasiveness of the Normal world. A few have been able to avoid the dreadful illness mostly in remote parts of the world. Most, however, have been exposed to the dis-ease, passing it down for many generations. 

Fortunately there is hope on the horizon as many who have been exposed to this debilitating dis-ease have worked tirelessly searching for a cure. One such champion of hope is mystic healer and metaphysical therapist, Michelle Crenshaw. After devoting over 30 years of research in her life's work to find a cure, Michelle, or "Mama" Crenshaw as she is endearingly known, has manifest her divinely inspired cure for almost everything Normal in her new and controversial book. SAVE YOURSELF BEFORE NORMAL KILLS YOU-Ascension in the Age of Chaos

The collective whole in such a community, will collaborate and cooperate to elevate the energy vibration of the individual, as well as the collective, through acts of social sensitivity, collective awareness, creativity, spiritual dynamism, and the pursuit of personal and global social justice, cooperation and willful acts of respect, love,  and peace.
