Are your animals communicating with you telepathically? Animal communication is the ability to sense what an animal is subtly telling you. You may hear a whisper of their voice or have an inner knowing as to what they are saying to you. Sometimes we see cloudy or clear images-similar to a movie playing out before our eyes. This is also known as telepathy –communication between the minds.

Linda Roberts is an Animal Communicator.

With her lifelong love of animals, Linda gladly gives the animals a voice via animal communication. It is through an energetic, heartfelt connection that she is able to communicate with animals. Her communications can be achieved either in the presence of the animal or remotely, due to the energetic nature of communication.She assists animals and their human companions with behavioral and health issues, living arrangement changes, and end of life transitions. She also offers energy healing, soul retrieval, and shamanic teachings for her clients.

Nurses In Politics: Part 2, Oregon State Representative District 37; Rachel Prusak

May 25, 2020

A judge in rural Oregon on Monday tossed out statewide coronavirus restrictions imposed by Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, saying she didn’t seek the Legislature's approval to extend the stay-at-home orders beyond a 28-day limit. Several Oregon opposers of the “Stay At Home Decree” from Governor Kate Brown’s executive actions have decried personal infringements on religious freedoms as well as their ability to earn a living.

Economists have forecasted more than a 2 billion dollar revenue loss due to COVID19 in Oregon. The state unemployment rate has jumped to a record 14.2%. Oregon House Rep. 37 District Rachel Prusak joins us to discuss these issues and how a NURSE is qualified to lead in the political arena. We’ll also discuss the ‘Death With Dignity Act’ which allows terminally ill Oregonians to end their life through the voluntary self administration of lethal medications, expressly prescribed by a physician for that purpose.

Rachel Prusak is an American Democratic politician and nurse practitioner who was elected to the Oregon House of Representatives in 2018. She represents the 37th district, which includes West Linn, Durham, Rivergrove, Tualatin, and Stafford. Prusak graduated from Northeastern University with a BA in nursing and then earned a Masters in nursing from Frontier Nursing University. Before her tenure in office, she was a family nurse practitioner who served elderly homebound patients for over 20 years, specializing in palliative and hospice care. https://rachelforstaterep.com
