    Hey, friends and fans of the podcast –




    Thanks so much for tuning in and listening to our weekly conversations over the last year, and sharing it with your friends.

    If you haven’t discovered it yet, you can sign up for our lively 30-minute podcast to be delivered to your I Phone or your email, weekly, when we get started with Season Two.

    But meanwhile, check out our archives right here,


    and have a listen to a topic that interests you –


    Forgiveness, Boundaries, Intuition, The Invisible, The Magic of Storytelling … 

    We’re pretty proud of our 40+ episodes!

    We learned a lot and enjoyed ourselves along the way, and we heard that you did too! We heard it’s your weekly dose of low-stress, insightful, spiritual classroom – you know, kind of like cherry-flavored spiritual vitamins.

    Currently, we’re cooking up some new shows with new voices, and you’ll be intrigued to hear that we have a series coming up called,

    The Surprising Gifts of Catastrophe.

    We’ll also be off to learn more about all of this podcast biz at The Podcast Movement Conference in Chicago this summer. See you when we get back, with Season Two.


    Best,


    Mary and Erin

    Dear friends,

    “There’s a benevolent plot afoot, and the conspirators are everywhere, visible and invisible.


    Their mission: the complete destruction of my fears and limitations, and the complete fulfillment of my life purposes.” – from The New Kitchen Mystic

    Oh! I’m enjoying doing this podcast so much, and I hope you are enjoying this meaty storytelling I am allowing myself to shamelessly indulge in.

    This week we continue our appreciation of the weird and wonderful

    as we explore our interface with other beings in the Invisible:


    animal spirits, angels, and special places in Nature, as I tell about some of my spiritual adventures in my wild 40 acres.

    Can the spirit of a bear roam the woods?

    Did the spirit of the former landowner guide my husband around to show him his uncompleted tasks?

    Did Jack the dog have and invisible friend, a white wolf?

    Was it really my mother’s ghostly hand on my back on Mother’s Day, come back to thank me for something?

    Are there 12 Step meetings in heaven? (What?!) My Dad’s spirit told me that there are.



    I hope that when you listen to this week’s podcast you will remember


    how enchanted and precious this world is, and how filled with love.

    Much love to you,


    Mary and Erin

    EPISODE 130: Our Life with The Invisible

    We belong to a Mystery,

    and it’s our joyous duty to learn how to honor it, enjoy it, and create with it.

    The spirit world is right next to, and woven into and throughout the physical world.


    We are in relationship with people that we know, and spirits who we sense.



    And we’re all citizens of The Benevolent Universe,


    a point of view that is really worth subscribing to.

    Mary and Erin are hot now, into a stream of storytelling about our life with the Invisible world.

    Enjoy Mary’s comfort level with the easy ebb and flow between the seen and the unseen, and Erin’s enthusiasm to become comfortable with it.

    This week, Mary and Erin celebrate the good results that come from following an active and accurate intuition, and how to cultivate this important life skill.

    Intuition is an expression of your truest inner self, and it is trying to bring you the good things you don’t even realize that you need.

    There’s no need to be afraid of it!

    Learn about the BLOCKS to intuition:


    Ignorance, doubt, fear, and glamour.

    What are we so afraid of?

    Being wrong, being viewed as weird or crazy, being vulnerable to spooky things and things that go bump in the night?

    Mary says, “Our soul is hanging out in Eternity, unfettered by time or space as our personality knows it.


    It has The Big Picture, and it is eager to communicate that perspective to us as we make choices each day.




    Our culture is still driven by scientific materialism, which denies intuition, or demands proof and evidence of these truths.


    But tell me, can you prove art or poetry? Would we want to deprive ourselves of the truths that are found there? I don’t think so.

    Intuition brings us rich perception of our real and best life, and we are well served when we decide to develop it and follow it into our fulfillment.”





    Today, Mary gives us some astute tips about the discernment and development of this important function in the path of self mastery: decision, experimentation, discernment “tricks” and gratitude for successes.

    Enjoy the stories:

    – of how intuition led Mary to a free vacation in Mexico, and also to the purchase of a special place – her 40 acres of quiet woodland.

    – Erin reflects on how her intuition has worked in her life, from the small and silly things to the big ones, like quickly buying her perfect new home with her new husband.

    Join us

    in validating and celebrating the experience of seeing “God’s yellow highlighter” on the important people and things on your path.

    Dear friends,


    I hope you enjoyed Part I of our 3-part discussion on the fine art of intuition.




    As we said last time, there are 5


    different ways people are intuitive, and this week we get into the details.




    Are you a visual intuitive, finding Waldo in the picture every time?




    Do you have that nice calm, directive inner voice that guides you along?




    Maybe you’re kinetic, a person who “follows your feet” with an uncanny sense of showing up at the right time and right place.




    **********************************************

    Tune in for more tales from The Benevolent Universe, and hear how intuition led my family to Jack the Best Dog Ever (even though I truly am not a dog person.)

    Remember – your intuition is guiding you into ease and happiness


    learn to recognize and follow it

    it’s fun!




    Warm regards,


    Mary Hayes Grieco & Erin Warhol

    “Your intuition is trying to show you

    only one thing all the time:

    how to be happy as you.






    It’s there to make life easier.



    Your intuition will help you understand your purpose,

    unfold it, and solve everyday problems.





    It needs to be reinstated on its throne

    next to the logical mind,

    so the two can work as partners.”

    -from The New Kitchen Mystic

    by Mary Hayes Grieco




    Our intuition is the means by which our soul guides our personality into ease and greater purposefulness.

    There is a spectrum of intuitive sensitivity, and different ways that it operates in different people.

    Most people operate with some amount of intuition, especially in concerns around safety, important relationships, parenting, and excellence in the workplace.

    And we can all learn to have more intuition, readily recognizing “God’s yellow highlighter” which is subtly emphasizing the things that are important for us to pay attention to.

    Enjoy Mary’s stories

    – how she safely navigated hitchhiking around the country as a young hippie, by following the guidance of her intuition at all times;

    – learn how intuition helps us with things small and large




    – from buying carpeting on sale

    – to meeting your soul mate.

    Here’s Part 2 of our conversation about healthy boundaries.





     





    This topic is so valuable we want to take a deeper dive into it, as it’s the sort of thing that finds most of us on a lifelong learning curve.





     





    Welcome to our snappy little “boundaries tune-up” concept.





     





    We are pretty darn sure that if you are not feeling steady, relaxed, clear-headed and confident this week, a boundaries tune-up will put you right.





     





    Remember, if you are experiencing stress, carrying a resentment, needing to say NO, or to drop something in order to make room for something new in your life …





     





    – it’s time for a little assessment about where to draw a line,





     





    – and where you need to say YES and NO on different levels.





     





    Because you are the boss of you, and you get to make your own decisions about Yes and No.





     





    When you need more sanity and happiness in your daily life – take another look at those boundaries of yours.





     





    Enjoy! And tell us what you think.





     





    Yours,





    Mary Hayes Grieco and Erin Warhol





     



    EPISODE 121: HEALTHY BOUNDARIES TUNE-UP – Part 2

    Everyone needs to set or re-set their boundaries from time to time, to eliminate stress and to be proud of the shape your life is in.

    Being human is complex, and we need to manage ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, energetically, and spiritually.

    Adjusting our boundaries on these levels from time to time shows us and the people around us that we have rights and and can make choices, and that we deserve good treatment.

    In this weeks chunky, chock-full podcast, we suggest a healthy boundaries assessment on different levels:

    Physical:     diet, clothing, budgets, resources, home and nature, time management – especially some time to yourself!

    Emotional:      laughing, crying, venting anger, handling a forgiveness issue.  Getting attention for your feelings or paying attention to the feelings of others. Say NO to shame, whatever else you do.

    Mental:      Screen out negative thinking and storytelling. use words mindfully. Prevent overwhelm and simplify your social media life. Unsubscribe!

    Energetic:     Cultivate your vitality. Practice healthy energy hygiene. Preserve and nurture your life force.

    Spiritual:      Take time for spiritual practices you enjoy.

    If you pick one item on each level to tweak, even a little, you will feel the tune-up happen!

    You’ll be glad to be you again.
