    OPRAH WINFREY: THE MAP 

    How many times have you witnessed someone get close to achieving a goal, only to see it suddenly fall apart? Or they reach the top of the mountain but can’t seem to hold on. Maybe you too have struggled with near-misses and dreams that didn’t quite materialize. Self-sabotage can be a devastating cycle. Oprah believes the variable between winning the race and faltering at the finish line lies with one of the guiding forces in her life: Intention. She says, “Those who sense your truth and your authenticity will rise up to support you. But most importantly you must believe with your whole heart that you are capable of achieving your goal. So first ask yourself Why? What is the real intention? Then ask: How will I execute the action?” In this podcast, Oprah sits down with such legendary spiritual teachers and writers as  Gary Zukav, Gabrielle Bernstein, Brené Brown, Stephen Colbert, David Brooks, President Joe Biden (VP at the time) Marianne Williamson, Daniel Pink, Carole Bayer Sager, Cheryl Strayed, Reverend Michael Beckwith, Meagan Good, Devon Franklin, Janet Mock and Goldie Hawn. They share their own personal trajectories and the inner map they followed which led them to the ultimate fulfillment of their dreams. Interviews with these talented writers, speakers and thought leaders are excerpted from Oprah’s Emmy Award-winning show Super Soul Sunday. You can also find this compilation and other insightful conversations, in Oprah’s best-selling book The Path Made Clear.

Thanks

Dear Oprah,

I wanted to thank you personally, for all the many hours, and much dedication to your most insightful and interesting podcasts, that present so many different topics and situations in life, you are touching so many people, who need uplifting and reminders that we are all the same humans, who are simply looking for kindness and love, who seek to grow spiritually and emotionally, I’ve been listening to your podcasts few years now, and it’s always inspirational, I wanted to ask you as a parent, to consider talking about a very sensitive and controversial topic, it’s globally known as parental alienation, people like Tom Cruz and Alec Baldwin are know to suffer from that, it’s when a child gets caught in separation or divorce, and he is turning his or her back on one parent, whilst aligning with the other, those children are under extreme emotional pressure to do so, and most of the cases do not justify this behavior, it’s a progressive behavior which the child is showing symptoms that usually lead to the breakdown of the relationship and they leave one parent, most of those children are very young, the family courts do not act quickly enough and the parent does not see that child for many years to come, it’s a tragic and traumatic issue that can have fatal impacts on both the parent and the children who are taught to hate the other parent, it’s used to be more known by mothers who automatically gain custody, but the system is so twisted and corrupted that now there’s so many mothers who do not see their children for years, it’s horrible and unacceptable, I know many organizations who are trying to make a change, but it’s very slow, meantime, there’s a whole generation of children out there, expect Mexico and Brazil who don’t allow parental alienation, this new generation of estranged kids who don’t have any relationship with one parent, they pass it on to their children and they all suffer the consequences, but courts do not care unless you get lucky , or even when you pay so many thousands and mortgage your house, you need to fight years, if you heard about Amy Baker she talk broadly about it, it’s like a disease, I was wondering if you can sometime talk about it in your podcasts or tv shows, to bring more awareness for it, as it’s a toxic parents who want to ruin the other parent, for many reasons, it’s unfair , injustice and the child loses not just the parent but the whole supportive other family, as they reject calls, letters, presents and any contact. I hope you can find time to dedicate to this most painful subject, thank you in advance, good bless you all.
