    You Don't Have to Be a Shaman to Communicate With the Otherworld

    You Don't Have to Be a Shaman to Communicate With the Otherworld

    Talking to Spirit is part of life. You don't have to be a shaman to do it. Everyone can do it easily. In today's episode, Richard Martini shows us how!

    Writer/Director/Author Richard is an award winning filmmaker, who has written and/or directed 8 theatrical features, and a number of documentaries. His first book, "Flipside: A Tourist's Guide on How to Navigate the Afterlife" went to #1 twice at Amazon in all its genres. The book is based on transcripts of a documentary he made which is available at Amazon (Flipside: A Journey Into the Afterlife) and Gaiam TV.

    His books "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" volumes one and two expands the research into the afterlife from Michael Newton's work, to include interviews with a number of scientists in the field of consciousness, including Dr. Bruce Greyson, Dr. Mario Beauregard, and Gary Schwartz Phd. He also examines near death experiences and compares their accounts to similar ones during between life sessions (the technique used by Michael Newton that allows people to access the between lives realm, or LBLs) and other examples (OBEs) where people may have lost their ability to think normally, but are having the same experiences.

    In "Hacking the Afterlife" he interviews mediums and explores "interviewing people no longer on the planet." As Gary Schwartz put it after reading "Flipside" “Inspiring, well written and entertaining. The kind of book where once you have read it, you will no longer be able to see the world in the same way again.”

    The Spiritual Purpose of Evil and Pain

    I am often asked why God would allow for so much pain and evil in the world. Why are some people gifted with lives of comfort and love while others have exactly the opposite. Today Laura Giles explores the spiritual purpose of evil and pain from an animist perspective.

    What Do Aliens and UFOs Mean for Modern Spirituality?

    What Do Aliens and UFOs Mean for Modern Spirituality?

    Many world governments have disclosed that aliens are real. How do non-Earthly life forms fit into the big spirituality picture? Do starseeds exist? Are the indigenous creation stories that we come from the stars true? What do extraterrestrials want? Are they gods? Are they beneficial helpers or do they mean us harm? Today's guest, Delane X, shares his experience and knowledge about these things to help us make up our minds.

    Seeking Spiritual Clarity from the Archetypes

    Seeking Spiritual Clarity from the Archetypes

    Cinderella is a teaching story? Say what? Yes. Humans have been fascinated with stories. They teach us, create a sense of belonging, and help us to know ourselves. In today's podcast, Laura Giles sits down with C.E. Banks from the Faith and Fear podcast to dig into just how these archetypes inform and enrich our spiritual and day to day lives.

    Where Do You Stand? | Modern Animism

    Engaging in animism is such an amazing way to get to know more about yourself and the world around you. For example, have you ever thought about where you stand? That's a perfect thing to look at to see how you move in the world, to regain power, to relate better, to be more you! Let's check it out through the lens of "Far From the Maddening Crowd" (movie).

Refreshing Content

First off, to the “Say what?” review that another submitted with 1 star - I’m able to hear the episodes perfectly fine. If you’re having trouble, it may be your own device or slow connection that’s the problem! Personally I can’t hear much straight from my phone, but when I hook up to bluetooth speaker I’m then able to hear things loud and clear. PEOPLE - don’t let this review deter you from giving this podcast a chance. Personally, I am THOROUGHLY enjoying Laura Giles’ animist perspective on a variety of topics. Animism appeals to me since it allows space for different beliefs, cultures, traditions, and freedom of the exploration of one’s own mind - in contrast to the arrogance, dogma and inflexibility often found with established religion. It upholds the idea of sovereignty, which Laura addresses in the podcast. Her background as a social worker lends a discernment that many are lacking in a broken world. She’s a modern sage with a straight-forward and honest approach, who emanates a sound mind and grounding presence that I feel the uprooted would benefit from.

Say what?

I wish I could review the content of this podcast, but the audio is atrocious and after several episodes of only being able to make out about half and only when I hold the phone to my ear in a very quiet room, I am about ready to give up knowing what this person has to offer.
