Powerful messages, tips, ideas, and suggestions for creating and living the life of your deepest heart’s desire.

    Spontaneous Knowing [20-0039]

    Spontaneous Knowing [20-0039]

    Most of us are aware of a pretty common phenomenon in which we seem to discover an answer we seek when we least expect it. It appears in a delightful form that we often call an “Aha Moment”, and when it happens, it jolts us with an indescribable energy that upon reflection reminds us of our eternal connection to All-That-Is. In this episode, we discuss this phenomenon at length and uncover a process for putting it to use more consciously—and consistently—in our lives.

    Believe it... or Not [20-0038]

    Believe it... or Not [20-0038]

    We have beliefs about virtually every aspect of life, from the macroscopic down to the microscopic, and these beliefs shape the way we perceive reality and influence almost every choice we make. Since many of our beliefs are hidden away in our subconscious, we may engage in actions somewhat robotically, as if we are running on autopilot. In a way, beliefs are a double-edged sword: they can help guide us on our life journey, but they also tend to reduce our openness to new information. In this episode, we examine beliefs in detail and dare to ask whether they serve us or disempower us.

    Is Fear Real? [20-0037]

    Is Fear Real? [20-0037]

    Conventional wisdom would have us believe that fear is an illusion, that it is all in our minds and that we should ignore it or rise above it. However, is this truly wise counsel? The physiological experience of fear feels very real when it happens—and all of us know what that experience is like. Similarly, when we experience joy or sadness or anger, we also have physiological responses that feel very real. So where do we get this idea of fear—and by extension, all of the other emotions—as being an illusion? In this episode, we tackle this very question in some detail. Listen in, and find some hope in the conclusion we come to.

    Radical Self-Acceptance [20-0036]

    Radical Self-Acceptance [20-0036]

    We are all blessed with a powerful ego-mind that is meant to be a tool for safety and survival in the physical world. Unfortunately, the ego-mind has a life of its own, complete with drama, stories, interpretations, conclusions, and judgments—many of which are directed at ourselves. We may find ourselves believing mental stories about us that are limiting, restrictive, and often quite nasty—all the more so in the context of unpleasant external circumstances like we are experiencing in the world today. These stories can get so loud in our heads that we actually forget who we really are, and sometimes even reject our true nature. This dynamic definitely makes the notion of “self-acceptance” difficult to say the least! In this episode, you’ll learn about radical self-acceptance, a powerful process for short-circuiting the ego-mind into silence so that you can enhance your self-acceptance while remaining authentic and true to who you really are.

    The Best Defense [20-0035]

    The Best Defense [20-0035]

    Ego defense mechanisms start out pretty benignly as a way to protect us and keep us safe. But what often happens is that they tend to become less and less useful over time. Even in adulthood, we tend to fall back on those tired old defense mechanisms because they have become habitual. And because we engage these old ineffective strategies more or less unconsciously, we don’t necessarily realize that they may be causing more problems than they are solving. So, what is the solution? Well, you might be surprised at the answer—check out the recording and find out.
