    S3E23 - Conscious Parenting and Magical Living with Timothy Stuetz

    S3E23 - Conscious Parenting and Magical Living with Timothy Stuetz

    This episode was a completely new experience for me in that this was the first show I've ever done focusing on children and parenting. That was because my guest, Timothy Stuetz, holds those topics near and dear to his heart even though he is very knowledgeable and experienced in many other things. He has been a long-time healer and spiritual coach, but he has also authored 88 children's stories and counting. Many of his stories feature a well-known character named Bliss Beary Bear that children love. He talked about the importance of having family rituals and the need for parents to reconnect to their inner child. I asked him about the keys to "conscious parenting", and he offered these: 1) learn the stages of child development, 2) learn to parent yourself (deal with your inner child wounds), 3) tune into your heart and listen to its wisdom, and 4) be fully present with your children and give them love always. He recommended the book Magical Parent, Magical Child by Joseph Chilton Pearce, and said it's somewhat similar to a course he offers called "Sacred Parent, Magical Child". Related to energy healing, he mentioned that he loves training adults in his Quantum Energy Academy. And he concluded with this wonderful advice: "Keep smiling, loving, and learning, and tune into the magic in life."

    S3E22 - The Magic of Surrender with Kute Blackson

    S3E22 - The Magic of Surrender with Kute Blackson

    I loved this episode with Kute Blackson because he brought so much wisdom to the show! Kute, who was born in Ghana, is a transformational speaker, national best selling author, and incredible spiritual teacher. We talked about self awareness and getting in touch with our True Self, our essence. This was what his first book, You. Are. The. One., was all about. And he told us that "There is no real transformation without truth.", and he talked about the necessity to uncover the lies we are telling ourselves and to expose and acknowledge those deep, disowned emotions and beliefs that we don't want to face. He said that when we can undo the conditioning from the past that is holding us back, we can access inner freedom, and "Freedom is the nature of who we are." In the rest of the conversation we talked about the message of his newest book, The Magic of Surrender. And he told us that surrender - letting go of the need for control - also leads to freedom. "Surrender to that which is greater than you." "Surrender to your soul, and that requires letting go of the ego." And he explained how surrendering to Life leads to magic... how Life will begin to use you in powerful and delightful ways. And he suggested that we ask this question "What is it that Life is seeking to express through me?", and then be open to receiving the answer. Now I mistakenly ended the conversation with Kute short because I got confused about the recording time. So  there is a bonus because for the last part of the show, I read for you the Introduction from The Magic of Surrender. That lets you hear Kute's words on just how powerful surrender can be. Kute's primary website is KuteBlackson.com, and you can also learn about a special program he does at BoundlessBlissBali.com.

    S3E21 - Motivation, Self-Actualization, and The Light of Man with Kevin McCrudden

    S3E21 - Motivation, Self-Actualization, and The Light of Man with Kevin McCrudden

    My guest for this episode was Kevin McCrudden who is very well known as "Mr. Motivation", a speaker on motivation (especially for commencement addresses but also for corporations), and an author of multiple books. He's now also becoming known as a filmmaker for the documentary "The Light of Man", and he also has an audio book with that same title. We had a wide-ranging conversation about his work in motivation, his book Who Are You? on self-actualization in which he presents an update on Maslow's hierarchy of needs using a multi-dimensional approach, his award-winning short film, and the spiritual aspects of all of that. This was a fun discussion on many different things, but along the way we touched on key points of the need for: personal transformation, a spiritual basis to life, awareness, wholeness, and the awakening of mankind to new levels of consciousness and how we relate to each other in the world. Based on his spiritual insights that led to the making of "The Light of Man", he also said that now, instead of closing an email with "God bless", he now uses "God bless and namaste". And, for himself personally, he translates "Namaste" to mean "The divine light of God in me acknowledges the divine light of God in you". A very nice touch, don't you think? You can learn more about him on Facebook and LinkedIn.

    S3E20 - Uplifting the Consciousness of All Humankind with TeZa Lord

    S3E20 - Uplifting the Consciousness of All Humankind with TeZa Lord

    TeZa Lord describes herself as an author, artist, and spirit activist. She says that "a Spirit Activist is a person who dedicates their life’s energies to uplifting the collective consciousness of all humankind, one person at a time." I love that definition (and I now realize I'm a spirit activist too) and that definitely describes TeZa, the energy she brings to everything she does, and her focus on spreading Love. This episode is all about having that kind energy and focus on uplifting our collective consciousness, not just for ourself, but for the good of the world. She said that life is about choices, and: "Everything in our life is a choice that takes us toward or away from love.", and "Surrender to something bigger than yourself."  And she emphasized that having awareness is not enough... It requires awareness, acceptance, and action. So many issues in life come from our non-acceptance of what is, and acceptance is key before taking action. Acknowledging the issues (what is) is necessary to resolve those issues. She also taught a technique that she learned from the book Into the Magic Shop by James Doty, and in simplified form it is: 1) body calm (relaxed), 2) mind calm (accepting and focused), 3) open heart (feeling unconditional love), and 4) clear intention. (I now have the book Into the Magic Shop, and I highly recommend it.) We talked about much more, but I really love what she recommended to everyone: "Find joy. Make it a priority in your life!" You can learn more about her at TeZaLord.com.

    S3E19 - Mutual Awakening and Shared Unity with Renowned Spiritual Teacher Patricia Albere

    S3E19 - Mutual Awakening and Shared Unity with Renowned Spiritual Teacher Patricia Albere

    In this episode, Patricia Albere and I talk about her experiences with mutual awakening and the unitive consciousness work she is doing now with groups. She is the founder of the Evolutionary Collective, an internationally known contemporary spiritual teacher and bestselling author of Evolutionary Relationships: Unleashing the Transformative Power of Mutual Awakening. She has been a spiritual transformation teacher since 1971 when she began as an EST trainer with EST founder Werner Erhard. But along the way, she had a very amazing experience in mutual awakening with a man she had fallen in love with. We talked about that and how powerful that was because it was a case of inter-subjective awakening and experiencing reality with another person in a much deeper way. Over the last 14 years, Albere has been pioneering a whole new realm of group unity work that leads to a shared unity in which the group experiences intra-subjective (shared) reality together. She says that in that state of shared unity, one feels that the individuals in the group take on a shared group identity (while still retaining their individual identity). And she added that she clearly feels that "Evolution is leading the group to new, higher levels of consciousness." She describes this as going beyond our individual "Me project" to the "We project" which involves truly experiencing We Consciousness as shared unity, shared reality. In talking with her, I feel that this is where human evolution is ultimately going, and I believe her work is very important for the future of humanity.

    S3E18 - Discovering Your Multiple Natures with Guest Steven Rudolph

    S3E18 - Discovering Your Multiple Natures with Guest Steven Rudolph

    S3E18 is an episode you should listen to if you are looking to better understand yourself because it is about discovering your multiple natures. My guest, Steven Rudolph, is the CEO of a company called Multiple Natures, and their business is helping people learn what their natures and intelligences are and what they are meant to do in the world. I took their assessment myself - they call it the MNTEST - and I received their report prior to this recorded conversation. In their framework, there are 9 natures and 10 intelligences, so that covers quite a spectrum of aptitudes and abilities, and the report gives you your rating (1-10) for each along with an explanation of what that rating means. But I learned that you need a qualified MN Practitioner to really begin to appreciate what the combination indicates for application in the real world, including spiritual aspects. Rudolph provided me a lot of interesting and useful insights into my natures and intelligences that I never would have fully understood on my own.  He is a gifted teacher and story teller, and he made the information that he shared quite interesting and memorable. He refers to nurturing your natures as "feeding your tigers". Some key messages/takeaways: You can rediscover your authentic self. You can't escape your true nature, so the more you know about it the better. You must learn to trust your true nature, and then live into it because that's how you are meant to live your life - loving your life - and how you can best serve others.
