I recently purchased an Amazon Fire Stick that turned my plain old basic cable into a major entertainment center. Unfortunately, despite having thousands of Amazon video, NetFlix, PBS, and TED Talks to choose from, I still wasn’t feeling the love. There’s only so much murder, sex, profanity, lectures, animal videos, and stupid human behavior I can take.
What’s a Supernal Girl to do? Download GAIAMTV.COM! Gaiam has grown from a fitness video company to a major producer of transformational programming. For the same $8 monthly cost as Netflix, you can view the quirky, quantum, and cosmic. There is also a variety of full length movies with spiritual themes. Plus, the Gaiam Yoga library is available to stream, which is great. No more moving to the same DVD over and over until it freezes and dies.
Some of the programs are unpolished and low budget, but slick isn’t always better. Intriguing information can be delivered on a white board with markers and a brilliant mind. If you don’t like one program, you can jump to another.
So far I have enjoyed Open Minds with Regina Meredith the most. She is a good interviewer, sort of the New Age Diane Sawyer. I watched a mind-blowing conversation on walk-ins and another about a dark pyramid buried in Alaska that could power a country the size of Canada. Fascinating!
Let me state that I don’t believe everything I see as absolute truth and some things are too far out of my current world view to embrace, but exploring new ideas keeps life interesting.
So, if you’re tired of the murder, mayhem, and mindless on other platforms, give GAIAM TV a try.
Have a joyful day!

I started my subscription to Gaiam in Dec. I love the offerings but have to watch everything on my computer (which I don’t like). My husband has tried to get it to work on the TV but there’s such a delay and so much stop/start stuff it’s impossible. I really wish Gaiam was a cable channel!!
