Tommiebefree : (25 September 2014 - 03:57 PM) I mean to say that its has been since I started gazing that the truth of what I (this mind body) became clear and has manifested. That's what i know.
Tommiebefree : (25 September 2014 - 03:42 PM) I don't knopw how to classify him. In my experience he is free/liberated "enlightened. My advice is to ty and see for yourself. Its It is (in my opinion) that my transformation was supercharged.
MonicaPz : (25 September 2014 - 03:30 PM) Braco (I don't know him) may be an empath.  Believe that some psychics, mediums and empaths truly have a gift.
Tommiebefree : (25 September 2014 - 01:33 PM) Since seeing him my trans self came to the surface and I have felt free to allow it and myself to be female.
