Welcome to the intersection of creativity and spirituality, a pilgrimage through time and space with Lobsterbird. Here, entrepreneurship is a holistic spiritual path, where travel, art, energy, and healing weave together, creating a space for presence, inspiration, and transcendence – a Bridge to Being. Welcome to the state that exists between worlds. Cultural anthropologist Victor Turner calls it liminality, where one thing is in a state of transitioning: “Liminal entities are neither here nor there; they are betwixt and between.” Buddhists have the Bardo. Catholics have Purgatory. As a lobsterbird (½ lobster, ½ bird, ½ Asian, ½ Western, ½ a dweller in this society, ½ time spent in creative realms of flow), I live in and embody this state. In fact, I believe we, as humans, are the bridge between the earth and the heavens, and it is through our acts of creativity that we manifest this glorious world of forms. In this podcast, I explore this multitude of forms, taking you along on my own adventures through space, exploring the transitions where we can rest and find something out about our true nature.

    Sumi Dishes on Korean Food and Being Satisfied on Long Beach Island

    Sumi Dishes on Korean Food and Being Satisfied on Long Beach Island

    Today’s episode is going to be a little unconventional, kind of like our Lobsterbird. We are going to be getting a bit quantum in this episode with her mother, Sumi, who is also a known food psychic. Modern Magic has brought Sophia back to her childhood home on Long Beach Island, where Sumi shakes a ham at her and answers deep questions about banchan (Korean tiny side dishes), fortune, and how our quality of life might be tied to the quality of tradition and culinary provision from the land.

    KOREAN FOOD is very tied to the LAND and to the SEASONS.  GOOD FOOD is highly symbolic of a GOOD LIFE. “I can’t BELIEVE in God if I can’t EAT.” UNRAVELING can lead to the GREATEST ADVENTURE of our lives. Your Travelogue
    My first crazy unraveling brought me back to Long Beach Island on my very first accidental retreat. I got down on my hands and knees in the sand and snow, and I prayed to that ocean - and all kinds of magical things started to happen. [4:19] The upcoming Modern Magic documentary: If Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown had a baby with the film Baraka, who also somehow through this weird polyamorous relationship also had this baby with the Dark Crystal and also Queer Eye More than a Makeover. [9:56] What’s up with the many, many little side dishes with lots of different things in them? Do they mean something? [11:59] Scientists came together in 2015 to study Korea’s unique food culture, which is connected to its long agricultural history, which was intimately connected to the seasons and the rhythms of the earth. [21:42] Good food makes people feel abundant and satisfied. It is enjoyable and makes us feel like we have a good life. [30:02] When the quality of food goes down and the quality of tradition goes down, does the quality of human life go down? [33:47] We expect our whole lives to be satisfying. Whether we have good food or nothing to eat, we can accept what is and be satisfied. [37:09] Going to God’s house meant special food on Sunday. [40:59] What do you think is more important, eating food or believing in God? [47:26] When people come together and eat, is that a spiritual experience? [51:18] This ends Phase One of the Bridge to Being. Why we're ending, for how long, and how we can still be together. [55:35] Links and resources:

    The Co-Creation Project is our brand new jam! and we are inviting a small group of like-spirited beings to join.
    what the world needs right now are Light Warriors who are willing to go deep—to co-create from the quantum field of all potential and fully embody that energy here on earth. it’s not enough to say we’re spiritual, to spout off wisdom and/or meditate in a void. this world needs us to bring all this energy into a state of complete beingness, compassion, and interconnectedness with life, and see what new earth emerges from that kind of collaboration.
    we gotta walk our talk. it takes community willing to do the work together to learn to be together in new ways. we must become attuned to the earth and larger ecosystem—physically, intuitively, emotionally, and analytically—to train and develop this kind of intelligence. 
    this is full-on integration and birthing new ways of being. i

    The Trauma of False Reality

    The Trauma of False Reality

    What happens when your worst childhood nightmare becomes a reality? Can you see through the illusion, the reality of what is real/not real? On the heels of three weekends of epiphanies and enlightenment, amid Colorado mountain beauty and koi pond and pumpkin patch, that is exactly what happened. Fly away with Lobsterbird as she shares her experience in a tender place, an *inverse conscious unconscious creation* in which her worst nightmare serves to heal her worst nightmare.
    Your Creative Sparks:
    TIME and SPACE are not as they seem. In fact, they are not even REAL. There is a BELL CURVE to HEALING, where CRISIS often precedes FREEDOM. When you HEAL, you have to bring up SHADOW. You have to understand the PAIN. We can’t SPIRITUALIZE our way out of FEELING what needs to be CLEARED. Leave us a Rating & Review!

    Your Travelogue
    My hope is that what I'm about to share with you helps us look at traumatic things in a whole new way. [2:17] Thank you Dragonfly! I have been liberated from a set of shackles or chains that I *maybe* sensed were around me, but I didn't think they were, you know, that big a deal. [9:24] “It’s a tricky weave we web here.” Do we cut through the illusion, or do we avoid it? Hashtag paradox alert! [11:11] Okay, so it’s September. I am integrating and trying to do nothing. Except...  [17:51] Be careful when you make deals with Spirit. They will make a deal back, and they will up the ante. [22:14] Tibetan yoga and lucid dreaming - my obsession and frustration and another synchronicity leads me further down the rabbit hole. [28:12] I'm feeling even more connected to the quantum field with every step I take, knowing that the ground is not real and neither are my feet. Then this unreal ground gets pulled out from under me. [31:52] I go outside and I'm walking around to the pumpkin patch and I'm like, Whoa, wait a second. My truck... [38:39] Someone has been in the house. Nothing obvious and valuable has been stolen, but precious, personal mementos are missing… as is my orange bikini. [43:22] If you want to debate how your thoughts create your reality, go right ahead, but I know that when I was little, I had this recurring nightmare where I was in this very house that I'm looking at right now from the sacred portal spot. [49:06] Let's just say there was something that was rising up in me. [53:57] It wasn't like I was like, Ooh, I'm just going to spiritualize this. And like, everything's energy and it's all fine. All of this stuff was coming up, and I was feeling it deeply, and then it moved through me, and I just kept clearing it. [1:00:24] I was like Frodo with the ring in the fires of Mordor. I was a hunter to my own fear. [1:03:23] I feel better than ever. I feel more confident than ever, especially that I can handle whatever comes my way. Like my new pilgrimage to India! You can join me, If you want to, you know, be able to face whatever circumstances come to you and allow them to be things that help you awaken and self actualize and heal.

    Ticks: Lobsterbird Solo on Sacred Ground

    Ticks: Lobsterbird Solo on Sacred Ground

    In her first solo walk with us in months, Lobsterbird travels along a magical path lined with multi-colored mushrooms, catching us up on her adventures through the many realms of spirituality, entrepreneurship, pilgrimage, the quantum field and more. Join us on the border of the forest of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, where the New Jersey Devil is in fact said to live, as Lobsterbird faces parasitic hunters in order to return home with the healing elixir she discovered along her hero's journey.

    COLLABORATE with FEAR. Think of it as a fun art project. We are going through a real DEATH PERIOD right now, in which we will be REBIRTHED. We are being asked to RAMP IT UP in our ability to deal with LETTING GO, SURRENDER AND FAITH. POLARITY is like a FALSE MATRIX of thinking. Your Travelogue
    It was about a year ago that I had a dark night of the soul that lasted like an entire year. Like it's just finished. There are many times throughout the course of the past year where I actually thought it was over, and then it just kept going. [1:49] This is the magic spot, and when I was little, it was in this spot that I knew that I was crossing over the threshold into another realm, much like the bridge to Terabithia. [5:42] Ticks. People are super scared of them because apparently they're hunters. [7:56] I came home to birth some kind of energy baby. [9:19] “I'm walking through the spiderwebs, leave a message and I'll call you back.” The way to collaborate with fear and make it an artistic project is to allow it to be there and make really creative choices with it. [15:55] We are in this time right now where people are really being asked to step up and express their truth.  [25:31] I am going to expose my own darkness and that's what this past year has been about. [30:04] A thirty second walking meditation for crossing out of the weird donut hole. [41:49] When the Buddhists were talking about duality and seeing through the illusion, I thought I knew what that meant. But the multiverse had to create this amazing obstacle course to really teach me what the Buddhists meant by duality. [43:45] We are here, on the path in the woods to liberation. [46:54] Because of our conscious awareness, we have an equal role in helping to sustain the planet, much as the planet does. What do you have to say to that, magic forest? [52:43] There's a different way to do this y'all, and that's what we have to get to. And we'll only get there if we are investigating really deeply what our own energies are that are running under the surface. And then we must learn how to clear it and how to transmute it and how to turn it into something which then does give us power. [57:03] I am convinced that we need new leaders to emerge in this world right now. [59:57] It is possible to be in a state of beingness. And it actually doesn't matter if you're walking through a magical forest of your childhood or you're walking around on the streets in New York City amongst all the chaos. [1:02:52] IRL Pilgrimages: Let's get enlightened. Purify our Karma. Heal our hearts and save some lives and build some elephant enclosures. It's going to be epic. [1:15:11] Links and resources:

    The Looking Glass of Your Love Frequency with Julie Pierce in Ireland

    The Looking Glass of Your Love Frequency with Julie Pierce in Ireland

    Lobsterbird returns to us from the rolling land, a myriad of greens and wildflowers, so many fields that just ARE. They aren't getting mowed, and they are perfectly perfect anyway. The animals are keeping them. Grasses are growing where they need to grow. The flowers are reaching up. With Julie Pierce, we reflect on our truth and being-ness - one can only behold that which is within. When we look through this mirror with radical acceptance and love, we enter a portal that beams with our radiant heart.

    The origin of the YOUME TREE. I see you, and therefore I can see me. Can you STAND in front of the MIRROR and LIST TEN features that YOU LOVE? Sometimes we have to BE CURIOUS TOGETHER and see what we find. Your Travelogue
    Spirals everywhere! And what do spirals do to your energy? Enhance it. Double it over. Amplification, Clarification, Purification, Ascension... Multitude vortexes in this land: in the stone circles, in the cairns, in the faery realms, in the structure of the caves. [4:19] The outer is a reflection of the inner, and the inner is a reflection of the outer. I don't want to call it a mirror, because it is so much more than that. A mirror is flat and hard and reflective. This is reflective, but this is *through* - like Alice and the looking glass - it's not a bounce back, it's a place of entry. It's a place of access. A portal. [7:21] Furry Scottish Lads? Don’t take ourselves so seriously, and ride the pendulum!  [10:45] Isn't it nice to experience love? Why is there anything else? [15:40] Open the heart to the thing we find disdainful. Compassion becomes part of our energetic signature. [18:14] We are totally into connecting! Connecting with people. Connecting with the earth. Connecting with animals. Connecting with trees. Connecting through social media. How do we keep from becoming overwhelmed by being so connected? [22:44] The first place of being able to manage that interconnection is within yourself, you to you. [25:51] Julie went to Egypt with her parents when she was nine. Isis was on the ceiling inside a pyramid. BOOM! Julie experienced a full body, deep cellular, vibratory connection. Not knowing what this was, she did not tell anybody what was happening to her. [33:09] It's a wonderful classroom, being a Mom. As a mother, my challenge is to NOT merge on my son, but to allow him to individuate. My exercise with him on that is the further individuation of myself. [38:38] This is where faith comes in: I show up. I make my best effort with my intention. And I am held in the container of the natural unfolding. [42:20] How our truth evolves and how we maintain our truth. [47:07] It takes courage to be with the stuff that feels horrible. Courage = it's not going to feel good. It's not better because you are brave. It's still horrible. The courage is just the part of you that you draw on to stay present. [53:53] Julie does love frequency readings. We crave love as an experience. Sometimes we can't know what to do next if we aren't clear on where we truly are right now. What is the theme of your present moment, which is a consequence of past choices, and where are you going? Good material to feel clear about your next step, and the choices that will lead to it. [55:05] IRL Pilgrimages: Take the leap. Step into your power. Speak your truth. Help awaken the world. We're building businesses, we're healing our lives on almost unbelievable levels - except it's all true because Magic is Real. [1:03:06] Links and resources:
    Where are you right now on the spectrum of Love Energy? Knowing this offers perspective and helps you understand how your experience fluctuates on the spectrum.

    Mystery is present in the lush, fertile spirals of Ireland. Soulful conversation flows between Lobsterbird and Maryanne Chaney as they sit upon thousands of blades of grass and are licked in the face by furry creatures. Above is a gorgeous sky of blue filled with fluffy, cotton clouds. And below? Who knows? Could be worms… bugs… poop? What does poop have to do with a state of grace, balanc-ing and spiraling up? Only everything. And how much are you willing to let go to find out?

    The Art of Yoni Dancing with Lyoni Fisher in Bali

    Today we are transmitting from the beautiful, sensual land of Bali in Indonesia, introducing *Yoni Dancer* fresh from the Bali Pilgrimage. Lyoni experienced the “arc of healing” which represented lifetime of healing in only ten days. The crucible of pilgrimage allowed her to discover she could be her authentic self, in all her unique glory, and still be accepted, embraced and loved. She also discovered a new language of energy, one that is felt in the body and personified in the dance.

Inspired 🌈💫💜

I had the pleasure of meeting Sophia this past April on a Pilgrimage to Ireland . She is such a spiritual being and I felt very drawn to her. I have begun to listen to her podcasts and they are all so inspirational. She is genuine, inspirational, and speaks truth. My life has been truly blessed and my mind and heart ❤️ expanded. 🙏🙏💫🌈

Deep connection and inspiration

This podcast is such a respite. Deeply grounding while also energizing and nourishing, Lobsterbird truly is a bridge. I’m so grateful to voices like hers, pointing the way to connection and meaning. Her hosts create a wholistic universe of tools and I come away form each episode empowered to observe and grow into new parts of myself. Such a wonderful spirit that feels like a soul companion.
