We are all energetic beings comprised of and supported by frequency,
light and sound. Not only are we made of light, but we also generate
light. That personal, literal light radiates from deep within our
bodies. It also streams right through from outside to the inside of us,
not stopping for skin or clothing. Because we consist of light, our
energetic boundaries are nothing more or less than light

Feb 14 ~ Charlotte View presents: Stop Being Single 5 New Rules of the Decade by Dr. Dar

Feb 14 ~ Charlotte View presents: Stop Being Single 5

 New Rules of Decade by Dr. Dar

Based on her seminar/workshop  

"Dating & Love & Sex & Dreams" in Charlotte, NC

Dating skills to find love and be loved in a committed relationship that's uniquely yours.
Help successful single women stop being single, love and be loved, and have lasting relationships that are uniquely theirs.
Company Overview
Stop Being Single was created by @AskDrDar for single women who are successful in their careers but suck at relationships, dating and love.

Charlotte View's Valentine Day with Dr. Dar 

Charlotte View is pleased to announce our Valentine's Day most avid advocate, Dr. Darshana Hawks "Dr.Dar". She is the Founder of Stop Being Single, a Human Design based system that increases your chances to find love and be loved in a committed relationship that's uniquely yours. Dr. Dar is helping hundreds of successful single women stop being single, love and be loved, and have lasting relationships that are uniquely theirs.
Based on her seminar/workshop ""Dating & Love & Sex & Dreams" that has been of great success in Charlotte, NC

It is only natural for those interested in the Human Design System to want to know how the knowledge can be applied to their relationships with others. After all, since the knowledge can tell us so much about ourselves, it stands to reason that it can also tell us much about how and in what way we have a predisposition to interact with specific others.

The most intimate sharing of two people is through their aura to aura connections - where the conditioning field from one to the other takes place immediately and continuously. Have you ever wondered why the chemistry between you and your parents and siblings remains consistent no matter how much life experience you have had?
There are many things to consider:
  • Should it be type for type, as in Generators with Generators, Projectors with Projectors?
  • What affect does the profile have on the connection?
  • What chemistry operates within the play of someone having one Gate and their partner (or partner to be) having the Gate at the other end of the channel?
  • Does it impact us if two people share the same Channel?
  • What is the affect if their partner has not one Channel the same?
  • What is the result of someone having a full Channel and someone else having just a Gate in that channel?
  • What if their predisposition in environment is the different?
  • Does the patterning beneath the line have an affect?
  • What if one person has Open Centres where the partner has fixed centres?
These and many other questions can be answered with the help of a trained analyst.

Love & Be Loved Take Away:  

  • Go away refreshed, energized, and full of committed connection with your partner.
  • Learn communication tools that will deepen your emotional connection.
  • Ask for and get your needs met inside and outside the relationship.
  • Learn how to communicate so that you are heard and loved.
  • Create a mutually satisfying long lasting love affair with your partner!

Why Dr. Dar 
Dr. Dar has learned what it takes to create a long lasting, supportive, and loving relationship – she has been joyfully married for almost 14 years…to the same fabulous man.
She has decades of training in communication, relationships, human behavior, coaching, and more…and she wants to share it all with you on this special night of celebration of love and couple-hood.

I also feel secure in knowing I have  “With Dr. Dar, I feel hopeful about my future and my relationship with my future partner. I also feel secure in knowing I have practical tools to use to continue to transform dating to find love and the thriving partnership I truly want with all my heart.”
“Dr. Dar’s gift of spiritual Truths come freely out of her during a conversation as if she’s been working and living these Truths most of her life. She embodies everything a Coach should be, in my opinion. Wise, Truthful, sincere, loyal, fair, Honest, and most of all, Wise. What we look for in going to someone else for help in whatever areas we are working towards in our lives is someone who knows more than we do, that can already see the bigger picture.  She is wise beyond her years, a coach that I am only too honored to have found. Since I was experiencing my current, 20 year relationship as less than wonderful, I hired Dr. Dar to coach me and then to coach both my husband and me. Dr. Dar’s work with us covered soup to nuts – meaning from grocery shopping to finances to dissecting a simple communication interchange to sex. After our work with her, I began to notice that my communication with others was cleaner, more precise and I am learning to be clear about when agreements are made and what they really are and to be aware when they are left incomplete and what the results are. I have and would refer Dr. Dar to others because of her commitment to her clients and the work that she does with purpose and clean intention. She produces in hours what it would take others months – even years. I have worked with many coaches and counselors and Dr. Dar stands out because of her ability to listen behind the words and to ask the very laser-like questions that get to the heart of the matter in ways that allow the client to discover underlying patterns that have held them stuck for years.   My daughter was in an abusive relationship and Dr. Dar accomplished in 4 hours what a psychologist could not in 10 months!”
“I felt the energy shift during our session, and within weeks the new and wonderful changes started manifesting in our lives personally and in our relationship. My husband had work within a few weeks that was fulfilling to him both emotionally and financially. Since one of the biggest challenges in our relationship was my frustration with being the “money maker”, once my husband had work I felt more enthusiasm about getting back to work myself, and my business is starting to be productive again. It feels as though a big stumbling block has been removed: a stumbling block that almost led us to separating. We are communicating better, we’re kinder to each other, and we enjoy being together again. We both treat each other respectfully … not because we “should”, but because we want to. Dr. Dar assisted us in taking what feels like giant steps in our personal growth, which of course is reflected in our marriage.We feel in love again. Dr. Dar has been a blessing to our marriage.”

Nov 15 ~ Charlotte View: Moral Monday/Forward Together Movement 11/15by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Lifestyle Podcasts

Nov 15 ~ Charlotte View: Moral Monday/Forward Together Movement 11/15 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Lifestyle Podcasts

Charlotte View openly welcomes Rodney S. Sadler, Jr., Ph.D., who has been hard at work in our Charlotte community bringing the message of the Forward Together/Moral Monday Movement. Along with many other leaders in our community, Rodney has shared the mission to spread the word, to encourage the elected officials to do the right thing, and to inspire those in his networks to bear witness in these trying times for North Carolina.
Rodney has been blessed to be able to spread the movement's message to churches, universities, and organizations across the region and, by radio, including Charlotte View, across our nation.
Issues the movement is recognized for and the information we will include in this interview are:
  • The origins, mission and vision of the Movement
  • The challenges, experiences and successes
  • The most important issues they are fighting for, like:
    • the expansion of Medicaid in our state for some 500,000 people in accordance with the Affordable Care Act.
    • Resumption of Unemployment Benefits in North Carolina
  • The upcoming Moral Mondays:
    • on Monday Nov 18th ~ rally/ town hall event to be held at Livingstone College in Salisbury, NC at 5pm.
    • Dec 23 the leaders of the movement will personally deliver the message to Governor McCrory during the holiday season that developing policies that hurt the least, lost, and otherwise left out is wrong.

In 2012, North Carolina elected a Republican governor, Pat McCrory, and Republicans expanded their majority in both state houses, giving them control of both the legislative and executive branch for the first time since 1870. Since taking office, McCrory has signed into law a number of bills promoting conservative governance, and the legislature has passed or considered a number of other laws which have generated controversy. The bills signed into law by McCrory and proposed legislation have been the target of ongoing "Moral Mondays" civil disobedience protests, organized in part by local religious leaders including William Barber, head of the North Carolina chapter of the NAACP.


Voting rights

Redistricting and proposed voting rights changes have been a focus of the ongoing protests. North Carolina Republicans benefited from a round of redistricting which took place in 2011, and was used in the 2012 election. The redistricting process was upheld by a three-member panel of state judges in early July 2013, and is expected to be appealed 51% of North Carolina voters chose a Democrat for their US house representative, but Republicans won 9 of the 13 seats up for election.
The state House passed legislation which would require voters to present government-issued photo identification in order to vote and repeals same-day voter registration and limits early voting. Legislators also passed "Equalize Voter Rights", a bill which would revoke the tax credit given to parents if their dependent college student registers to vote at their college/university address. This bill would also require all voters to register their vehicles at the same address as their voter registration. The editorial board of the New York Times called this "a blatant effort to reduce Democratic voting strength in college towns like Chapel Hill and Durham."
McCrory has stated he will sign a revised version of the bill which also includes provisions which end same-day voter registration, reduce early voting, and ends a program which allowed high school students to register to vote prior to their 18th birthdays. The bill also changes regulations for registration, requiring voters to appear in person or mail in a form 25 days in advance of the election. When asked how preventing students from registering in advance of their 18th birthdays would prevent voter fraud, McCrory stated "I don't know enough, I'm sorry, I haven't seen that part of the bill."
In August 2013 McCrory signed into law the revised bill, which was the subject of renewed protests. The NAACP filed suit to halt the law from being implemented.

Cuts to social programs

McCrory signed legislation which made North Carolina the 8th state to cut unemployment benefits since the start of the current recession. In addition to cutting maximum weekly unemployment benefits by 35%, and has reduced the maximum number of weeks of assistance to between 12 and 20, down from 26. This prevents 170,000 North Carolinians from benefiting from federal emergency extended benefits, which require a minimum of 26 weeks of state support. This allows the state's unemployment fund, which became bankrupt over the course of the recession, to become solvent three years sooner. This move was criticized for weakening the safety net when the state had the nation's 5th highest unemployment, and for passing up federal support.
In March 2013, McCrory signed a bill which opts the state out of the expanded Medicaid program of the Affordable Care Act of 2009, which would have provided health care coverage to 500,000 North Carolinians, citing concerns about the sustainability of the program. He has also proposed managing Medicaid accounts, by enrolling patients in managed care programs run by private companies.

Tax changes

Legislators are also considering legislation which remove or lower income taxes, and making up for the lost revenue with an increased sales tax. McCrory distanced himself from this proposal, which was criticized by Art Pope, his deputy budget director, as being regressive. The reform passed will result in some families, retirees and small business owners seeing a tax hike under provisions in the bill and all taxpayers will have to pay some additional sales taxes. The largest tax breaks will go to higher-income earners.

Racial Justice Act

McCrory signed into law a bill which repealed the state's Racial Justice Act of 2009, which allowed inmates facing the death penalty to challenge their sentences on the basis of racial discrimination. His predecessor, Bev Purdue, had previously vetoed similar legislation.

Abortion rights

In early July 2013 the state House unexpectedly attached a number of restrictions on abortion access to a bill described as combating Sharia law. It passed the house less than a day later, but was abandoned after protests and McCrory stated he would not sign it without modifications. An amended version of the restrictions were subsequently added to a motorcycle safety bill. This bill was passed by the state Senate, and became a subject of the protests.
In July 2013 McCrory signed into law legislation which requires abortion providers to meet the same standards as surgical centers, allows health-care providers to decline to perform abortions, and prevents any public health insurance policy for paying for abortions. Abortion-rights groups criticized McCrory, who had stated during his campaign that he would not sign new abortion restrictions.
The day after McCrory signed the bill, he took a plate of chocolate chip cookies to protesters. They were returned to him with a note saying, "Gov. McCrory, will take women’s health care over cookies!"

Public education

As of 2012, the average state teacher in North Carolina earned approximately $9,500 less than the average public school teacher in the US. The 2013 budget for state teachers did not include any raises to base salary. Additionally, the budget phases out tenure for public school teachers by 2018, eliminates future salary increases for teachers who earn master's degrees, and cuts $120 million from the budget for teacher assistants. Cuts to education have been one of the issues raised in the protests.


Since the start of April, more than 800 demonstrators have been arrested in the course of the protests, and police have estimated weekly attendance at over 2,500. Cited reasons for the protests include legislation recently passed or proposed on changes to Medicaid, changes to voting regulations, school vouchers, tax reform, and abortion. McCrory has criticized the protests as unlawful and a drain on state resources, and has declined to meet with them, later stating "outsiders are coming in and they're going to try to do to us what they did to Scott Walker in Wisconsin." The vast majority of attendees are North Carolina residents.
Once the legislature finished for 2013, protesters moved to the square at Buncombe County Courthouse in Asheville. The NAACP and others intended to visit all 13 North Carolina congressional districts. Rev. William Barber, the president of the NAACP's state chapter, said more people needed to register and vote to show their disapproval of state policies.
On August 19, 2013 the Moral Monday protests moved to Charlotte when 2,000 people gathered in Marshall Park for one of the city’s largest protests. Organizers announced plans to return to Marshall Park and a dozen other sites across North Carolina.

Since it can give you close to a decade’s worth of “lead time,” it can be very empowering tool. Should the image indicate an area of inflammation, you can immediately start applying strategies to reverse such symptoms, and within a couple of months be able to confirm that it’s working by taking another picture. Since it’s as harmless as taking a photograph of yourself, you need not worry about making more frequent follow-ups.

Again, the reason why thermography is so effective as a preventive tool is because it can detect the potential for cancer, and can detect already formed cancers at a far earlier stage than a mammogram. Essentially, it detects areas of high inflammation, which can be viewed as a “hot-spot” with cancerous potential.

But it’s important to understand that thermography does not diagnose cancer. Again, higher temperature readings indicate higher levels of inflammation, which can lead to cancer. But if your thermogram shows areas of high inflammation, it doesn’t mean you have cancer. Rather it lets you know you need to address that inflammation to avoid deterioration, and in some cases that the area needs further evaluation.
