CJ Werleman is an internationally renowned journalist who uncovers abuse of Muslim communities around the world. Before I decided to become a patron for CJ’s Patreon account, I had a lucid (clear) dream about him. I wrote about this dream in the blog post “My Psychic Images of CJ Werleman“.

Once just before falling asleep, I heard certain sort of voices that almost made my body jerk in pain. This is because CJ reads into unfair treatment of humans especially Muslims…CJ was walking there on his own feeling very happy about something. The dream emphasized the large number of people and then the size of the land so much so that CJ appeared almost insignificant and difficult to find. My Psychic Images of CJ Werleman

My mind becomes very clear just before I fall asleep and then during the dream state as well. So when I noticed CJ’s pain and humility, I started caring more about him and his work. I must comment that being able to experience someone’s pain is a gift. According to Brene Brown, vulnerability is the source of creativity and courage; see her speech “The Power of Vulnerability“. This is why great musicians and poets feel pain while composing their works. I knew I was dealing with someone very creative after I had this dream. Seeing is believing! Thus, I became a patron and started participating in the project.

CJ’s Patreon project is very creative. So far, I have participated in podcasts by asking questions (see blog post, “Participating In CJ Werleman’s Q&A Sessions“); attended virtual events (I even participated in the virtual event “72 Years of Indian Occupation of Kashmir“); received ebooks; learned about issues that Muslims are facing; read CJ’s articles to guide my research about Kashmir for my poem on Kashmir (see blog post “Why Am I Writing A Poem About Kashmir”); wrote the Boycott BJP/RSS Toolkit (see post “Boycott BJP/RSS Toolkit” published on Oct 08, 2020); and, provided articles for the project “Database: Hate Crimes Against Muslims in India” (see Comment 1 and Comment 2). Seriously, I am learning a lot through this project!

CJ is currently attempting to increase the number of patrons so that he may transform his podcast to a YouTube channel—see the original tweet here. Select a membership plan by visiting his Patreon account. Patron packages start at $1/month. To learn more about CJ Werleman’s work, check out his website.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and support!
