The Black Death was the first recorded pandemic in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire. All across the continent, people learned just how gruesome and horrific disease could be as the plague crossed the boundaries of countries and the lines established by society, killing everyone equally. It showed that no one - not even archbishops and kings - was immune from its grasp.

Do you want to avoid first-time home buyer mistakes? Buying a home can be both exciting and overwhelming for all first-time home-buyers. If you have already started the search process, make sure you're not making some common first-time home buyer mistakes. Most first-time home-buyers have never gone through the stressful experience of buying a home, and they often have to learn the hard way when buying their first home, but by making only a tiny mistake during the home buying process, it can be extremely costly and frustrating.

The themes of the history of Cuba are as vast as they are inspiring. Cuba has stared death in the face throughout its rocky history, and most of the time it has gazed into the eyes of death and smiled. Over and over, oppressors have attempted to seize this island and its riches for their own selfish purposes. And over and over, revolutions have risen up to conquer in an attempt to return Cuba to its people.

The first World War was one of the most devastating conflicts in our history. The tumult and chaos that remained in the wake of the first World War had far-reaching and devastating consequences, not just for Europe and the survivors of the war, but for the entire world. The ruins of Europe provided a fertile breeding ground for fierce nationalism, which led to the rise of the Third Reich and allowed the evil of Adolf Hitler to go unchecked for far too long.

Take a second to imagine how you’ll feel once you have successfully traveled through the astral realm and how your family and friends will react when they see how much calmer, more focused, and happier you are. So even if you’ve been disappointed by fake guarantees and promises that didn’t come true - don’t worry! You can still learn to have purposeful, positive out-of-body experiences with astral projection.
