It's been a good year!

If you are like many people (myself included), 2011 had some pretty difficult parts!  For me, I can say without question that the first 6 months were some of the hardest of my life; but the second 6 were some of the best!

Now here on the eve of 2012, I am filled with hope for the year to come, even if it’s our last (even though I don’t think it is).

In the video below, we look back on 2011, along with answering the following questions (and if you prefer, you can listen to the radio version of these questions and more!):

There are so many books and teachers and mediums and things out there on being spiritual. Which do you recommend are the best to take advice from and learn more about?

Can place really be haunted? If so then what are the qualifications for a place to be so?

And more…enjoy!
