    58: Christine Stevens: Drumming Her Way to Life Purpose

    In this episode, internationally acclaimed author, speaker, and drumming expert Christine Stevens tells of reclaiming her life and traveling the world as a drummer and music therapist, gratitude as a way of life and her spiritual journey.

     “Drums circles are really on the rise. It is because we need it and we're doing it now for different reasons.   We're not performing.  We're not trying to become good drummers.  We get it.  It's stress reduction.  It's bonding.  It's beyond words.  It turns off our brains.  All of that is the why.”– Christine Stevens

    54: Angie Swartz Receives a Live Astrology Reading from Molly Morrissey

    54: Angie Swartz Receives a Live Astrology Reading from Molly Morrissey

    In this special edition of the Life Purpose Advisor Podcast, Molly Morrissey conducts a traditional astrology reading for Angie Swartz.  The reading illustrates how astrology can be a useful tool for helping you understand yourself better and provide hints at your life purpose.  Hear from Angie Swartz' experience what an astrology reading can be like and see for yourself if this is something that might be helpful to you.

    Molly covers the four temperaments (water, fire, earth and air) as well as specifics directly related to Angie.  This is an actual session so some of the references you hear may seem foreign.  However, you can listen for the key points that are relevant to life management.

    Molly has taken Angie's birth date, time of birth, location of birth used them to analyze Angie , her innate patterns, and where she is in her development. Angie had not seen or heard this information before this recording.

    In episode 53, the November 2nd show, Molly was interviewed about her life, her journey, her work and her life purpose.  You can listen to episode 53 at www.lifepurposeadvisor.com/53

    About Astrology
    The following description of Astrology is an excerpt taken directly from Molly Morrissey's website:

    Natal astrology is the second level of complexity in traditional astrology (the primary level being horary astrology). Natal astrology is the study of a person’s birth chart.

    The birth chart will describe the personality characteristics and the events that can be seen or measured in the life.

    With regard to the personality, we can see the general temperament (the sort of person you are – emotional, rational, action-oriented or contemplative) using the 4 Element system of traditional astrology, and more in particularly, we can see the specific internal complexities and contradictions laid out with elegant clarity. For example, we can see that you emotional response might often be at odds with your reason. Or that you hold onto your temper and then you outburst with family. Or that you have a hard time expressing emotion at all.

    While we can describe the specifics of your exhibited personality and see the internal complexities and internal conflicts, we can also see the hints of your divine essence – the soul level part of you that informs everything you feel, do, and experience.

    So – we can describe aspects of a person’s essence as it informs our physical reality. To say with any certainty that we can get at the truly unknowable parts of life is beyond the ego or claims of this astrologer, for sure! What we can know, we are happy to have – and the rest is for the realm of faith.*

    Technically speaking, a birth (or natal) chart is a picture of where the planets in our solar system were in relation to the horizon at the moment a person takes its first breath. For example, if a person is born in the morning, the Sun will be over on the left side of the chart, near the horizon – depending on the exact time. At midday, the Sun is at the top of the chart, etc. If a person is born near a New Moon, the Sun and Moon are together in the chart.

    The season in which the person was born (the phase of the Sun) and the phase of the Moon are extremely important in traditional astrology – these two crucial bits of information are all but ignored by the modern astrologers, making up one major difference among many between the two types of astrology.

    A natal consultation focuses on the birth chart, but then also considers many charts, all derived from the birth chart, to understand a particular event, moment, pattern, personality characteristic or behavior in the person’s life.

    The complexity is increased in that now the astrologer is using the same concepts as horary but doing lots more work to understand patterns as they unfold over the arc of a whole lifetime. The astrologer is, at this point, also starting to consider the fixed stars (the constellations) in addition to the planets in our solar system

    53: Molly Morrissey: Leading Your Way with Astrology

    In this episode, Molly Morrissey discusses her experiences as an architecture student in England, a boat captain on a ship, and an astrologer, and how following her curiosity has lead her to discover her purpose.

    "If you want to do it, you'll figure it out. You have to be willing to follow your curiosity. Hard work is not a bad thing. Messy work is not a deterrent. Be willing to slow down long enough to figure out where your curiosity is living.”– Molly Morrissey

    Molly Morrissey's Life Purpose

    "Resilience" and to help people get through without feeling like their settling.

    Life Purpose Ah-Ha Moments

    For the first time in her life, Molly Morrissey, in her late 30's, did not know what she wanted to accomplish next in her life. After many adventures, she realized that she loved having conversations with people and had an idea to pursue communication. Molly saw a counselor and during her sessions, she knew she wanted to do something similar. She signed up for a program to receive her Masters of Art in Applied Behavioral Sciences to align her career with her purpose.

    Major Life Events that Hinted at Your Life Purpose

    After returning to America from her architecture studies in England, Molly did not want to return to school because of a negative experience. Instead, she followed her curiosity and volunteered for a boat organization, which eventually led to receiving a captain's license.
    In the late 1990's, she started taking yoga classes where she learned about the chakra system. It was her first introduction to self awareness and knowing internal patterns.
    Molly took a job as a boat captain and first mate on a ship that sailed to Alaska, during which she constantly used her observation abilities through all of her senses. This time in pristine wilderness proved to her that she could go on big adventures. She learned that just because something is difficult, it does not mean there cannot be bliss or satisfaction.
    Learning about symbols in space through architecture and symbols on maps for boat navigation lead Molly to pursue astrology; symbols on paper that show patterns in the universe that can help people understand themselves better.

    Spiritual Belief

    She was raised in a Irish Catholic family, however, living in her town of Olympia, Washington gave her a variety of spiritual perspectives.
    Believes in a higher power that she refers to as God, but is open to the many names that other people may like to call "He, She, or It."
    "Faith is a daily practice of learning how to risk."
