I am new to the foundation, so if this has been answered already, please forgive me and direct me to the link that has the answers. With the internet and now social media being used more than ever, I am constantly finding ordinary good people being sucked into superstituous mumbo jumbo. For instance (amethyst put close to someone while they sleep promotes vivid dreams or Sun Gazing can promote a more centered and harmonious self). One can jump on the internet and find hundreds if not thousands of people that agree to their erroneous claims. They point to "studies" and i have even read an 'article' how NASA cofirmed Sun Gazing (http://www.pakalertpress.com/2013/06/13/nasa-confirms-super-human-abilities-gained-through-sungazing-an-enlightened-perspective/). These are being pushed on social media like I have never seen before. I often avoid these discussions with my friends on social media because Im either not sure how to approach the situation or what to say and where to direct them on where the real science can be found. Any thoughts on how to combat this? I just cringe at the fact they are recruiting more mindless followers daily.
