I started a YouTube channel! And the link to my first YouTube video is in my bio!
I've been wanting to start a YouTube channel for quite some time, but I've let the insecurities and fear surrounding the judgment and criticism I likely would receive, win.
Yesterday, something shifted. I have suffered with panic disorder for many years. Yesterday, I had the first panic attack I've had in a long time, but instead of allowing it to derail me, I chose to listen to it.
The result was this video. Curious to see where this takes me.
After re-watching, I'll admit the video drags on a bit toward the middle. This was a good learning lesson. For future videos, I plan to keep them no longer than 7-10 minutes. My initial thought was to clip some of the middle out, but I decided against it because I wanted the full, raw footage to be released. It was where my mind as at in the moment. I say it deserves a shot out in the world. Never know who it might reach/touch.
Anxiety, spirituality, psychedelics, consciousness - all my jam. Talk to me about these topics, and YOU! I want to hear from you! Let me know if you have similar thoughts, feelings, or experiences. Always looking for people to talk real shit with.
Thanks for listening! 🙂

Sharpless 2-106 (Sh2-106 or S106 for short) is a bipolar emission nebula and HII region. It measures about 2 light-years long by 0.5 light-year across and is located about 2,000 light-years away in the constellation Cygnus, in a relatively isolated region of the Milky Way.
Despite its appearance, Sh2-106 is not a planetary nebula, but a giant molecular cloud and star-forming region. Twin lobes of super-hot hydrogen gas (glowing blue) stretch outward from the central star, what creates the “wings”. This image also reveals ripples and ridges in the gas as it interacts with the cooler interstellar medium.
The massive, only 100,000 years old central star (S106 IR), which could be up to 15 times the mass of our Sun, is still shrouded in dust and gas at the centre of the nebula. It is responsible for the surrounding gas cloud’s hourglass-like shape and the turbulence visible within. Eventually its light will break free of the enveloping cloud as it begins the relatively short life of a massive star.
Dusky red veins surround the blue emission from the nebula. The faint light emanating from the central star reflects off of tiny dust particles. This illuminates the environment around the star, showing darker filaments of dust winding beneath the blue lobes.
Detailed studies of the nebula have also uncovered more than 600 hundred brown dwarfs which may someday create a small cluster. These “failed” stars weigh less than a tenth of our Sun. Because of their low mass, they cannot produce sustained energy through nuclear fusion like our Sun does.

“On some dimension or other, every event in life can be causing only one of two things: either it is good for you, or it is bringing up what you need to look at in order to create good for you. Evolution is win-win…life is self-correcting.”~ Deepak Chopra 🧘
On this day in 1969, Neil Armstrong on the Apollo 11 mission touched down onto the Moon for the first time in human history. We have a very few amount of our “1969” shirts left in stock, and they have been marked down to $19.69 until they are sold out.
