    The Power of Your Mind: Exploring the Law of Attraction with Victoria Gallagher

    This is going to be a great show today we learn more about the Law of Attraction. This concept has gained a lot of attention in recent years, with many people finding success in their personal and professional lives by practicing it.

    The Law of Attraction is a belief that by focusing our thoughts and energy on our desires, we can manifest them in our lives. It is based on the principles of quantum physics and has been mentioned in various spiritual and philosophical teachings throughout history. The Law of Attraction can be practiced through visualization, affirmations, and gratitude, and requires taking action towards our goals and aligning our beliefs with our desires. Although it has gained mainstream popularity, the Law of Attraction has been criticized for promoting a "magical thinking" approach to life. It can be used to attract various things into our lives, and is a personal practice that can be interpreted and applied in different ways by different people.

    Learning More about Coping with Grief with Alison Pena

    Learning More about Coping with Grief with Alison Pena

    This podcast explores the difficult topic of coping with grief. Losing a loved one can be one of the most challenging experiences in life, and the process of grieving can be overwhelming and confusing. In this episode, I speak with Alison Pena who lost her husband, David Beynon Pena to Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

    Losing a loved one can be one of the most difficult experiences in life. Grief is a process that can't be rushed, so it's crucial to take the time you need to move through it on your own timeline. Remember, it's okay to feel sadness, anger, and confusion during this time.

    While the death of a loved one is a common type of loss, other types of losses like a pandemic, business failure, job loss, divorce, death of a pet, damaged relationships in your circle, your own illness, or even aging can also cause feelings of grief. You should allow yourself to grieve these losses and seek support if you need it. By taking these steps, you can begin to take back your life after loss and find hope for your future.

Engaging and Informative

I really enjoy this gem of a podcast. I love how it it began—Russ wanting to learn something new each week.

Russ does his homework and asks engaging questions. Interviewing can be an underestimated skill. I love that I learn something new on a variety of topics, some of which I wouldn’t even think about like decluttering my life.

Thanks, Russ! Keep ‘em coming!
