Why It’s Imperative We Shift to the Sacred Matrix Reality that Contains the Healing Powers Of Life

We live simultaneously in two realities: in the reality of global war, and in another reality, which we call the “Sacred Matrix.” To “Defend the Sacred” was and remains the motto for the Sioux in the Dakotas.
