    An UnBoxing “God” Complete Convo: Mom of TikTok, Samantha Howsden Ward @MONW0102, talks to McCall

    An UnBoxing “God” Complete Convo: Mom of TikTok, Samantha Howsden Ward @MONW0102, talks to McCall

    In this episode, you’ll get to know the captivating ‘Mom of TikTok’, Samantha Howsden Ward aka @MONW0102. She shares her spiritual evolution, which developed from a God-FEARing relationship as a child, with a Bible beating, mentally ill mother.... into (co)dependency with a toxic first marriage... and finally, to the place where, now she actively chooses Love over Fear. - Tune in to hear all the juicy bits of Samantha’s life story and expanding belief system, from the positive impacts of divorce, to her son changing her parents’ expressions of love. - How have YOU Chosen Love today? - This Bonus Holiday Gift episode of Unboxing “God” is an atypical format (like the “Complete Convos” I post on Patreon) in which Samantha calls herself a ‘conundrum wrapped in an enigma’, as she has interests all over the place. She is who she is - growing daily and meeting people where they are. I (hey there, McCall speaking!) wholeheartedly agree and I suspect you will too, after listening to this whirlwind of an episode. Happy holidays!! - - • Samantha’s TikTok: www.tiktok.com/@monw0102

    A Thanksgiving Al-Anon Speaker Lead (McCall - Los Angeles, CA. - 11/26/20)

    A Thanksgiving Al-Anon Speaker Lead (McCall - Los Angeles, CA. - 11/26/20)

    On Thursday night (Nov. 26th, 2020), McCall had the honor and opportunity to share her story of Experience, Strength and Hope - for an online, quarantined, holiday, Zoom call conference. The childhood memories that flowed forth were thanksgiving miracles, because it was suddenly so easy to remember the good, and took actual effort to recall the “bad”. What you will hear is the story of an only child raised by a single mother - a magical, creative, beautiful poet of a woman, and also an alcoholic. Hear how, with the help of Al-Anon and AlATeen (and a higher power she calls “Waldo”) McCall discovered gratitude, joy, and contentment. (Los Angeles, CA.)

    Wonder, Awe + Bliss [Episode #12.2]

    Wonder, Awe + Bliss [Episode #12.2]

    In this episode, McCall unboxes awe and wonder. 
    She contemplates the causes and effects of her own limited opportunities to experience awe as a child and endeavors to discover the benefits, and possible downsides of awe.
    McCall explores the history of awe and its evolution in society, the sources of awe, it’s power to create social bonds, and even provide physical healing. 
    In an interview with Mike Richardson professor of Adolescent Development and Classroom Management at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, McCall hears about the wondrous nature of grapes, and posits awe as a form of worship.
    Finally, McCall relays the value of boredom in sparking curiosity, and encourages all of us not to worry, because worry leaves us “feeling awful instead of awe filled.”

    Sacred Geometry: Significant Shapes, Perennial Patterns + Divine Digits [Episode #12.1]

    Sacred Geometry: Significant Shapes, Perennial Patterns + Divine Digits [Episode #12.1]

    Sacred Geometry: Understanding the Underling Meanings of Shapes + Patterns
    In this episode of Unboxing God, we talk about sacred geometry and the meaning and connection of certain shapes, like the square, circle, and triangle. Is the ultimate answer in the Great Architect or just a series of extremely unlikely coincidences? Paying attention to your surroundings reveals patterns appearing all around us both in nature and in human made structures; we take a closer look at how this is especially true of the golden ratio.
    We also try to unbox the number five, and the irrationality of pi and phi. It is important to that from our earliest days humans have been using images, shapes, and numbers to represent our understanding of the universe. But we also need to understand that there’s still so much more we don’t know and highly unlikely that we will ever achieve the theory of everything.
    Listen in to learn how sacred geometry brings healing, harmony, and rebalancing on every level. You will also understand why the triangle is the magic shape uniting the body, mind, and spirit.

    What you will learn:
    · How sacred geometry deals with more than proportions of geometric figures, but also with forms and structures of natural objects.
    · My struggle with finding balance with any two things and the solution of some possible third option.
    · The circle - is the undifferentiated unity and a sign of completion.
    · A snippet of Devon’s interview - she’s a freemason and has been interested in satanic literature since she was a child.
    · Unboxing the number five - the Fibonacci Sequence and the golden ratio and how by paying attention you can see patterns appearing all over.
    · Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man mystery - on whether he used the golden ratio or not.
    · How sacred geometry supposedly connects the inner with the outer in unity.
    · The triangle - represents the union of our body, mind, and spirit and is the symbol that underlies all other symbols. It is the magic shape.
    · Why we’ll never achieve the theory of everything but can be inspired by the natural phenomena we can see all around us.

    Halloween/All Souls’ Bonus Episode

    Drop all of your preconceptions before listening, cuz I bet this is not at all what you expect to hear.

    From the history of trick or treating and dressing in costumes, to the merging of many holidays into a harvest filled bounty of celebration that many folks may know, Brother Matthew Paul talks druids, Wicca, Catholicism, and The Order of The Bards, Ovates, & Druids. He shares his own Dominican order’s reverent practice of honoring their families and ancestors, but especially their dead. Learn the truth about Samhain, Neopaganism, Purgatory, All Souls’, Guy Fawkes - from Saints to Satan, Brother Matthew Paul leaves no caldron untipped (or pumpkin Un carved) in this fantastic expose of a really wonderful holiday! 

    As always, friends, things are precisely what you make of them. 
    Boo!

The message

Do you know when you’re reading a good book and everything resonates and you want to highlight those things but then at the end of the page you realize you almost highlighted the entire book? That’s how I feel about this podcast. Consistently inspires shifts in perspectives and shines light on truth. Thank you for your continuous service ❤️

Step 3: You got to open the box!

Never once has it felt as though I am having anything forced upon me. “Go therefore and make disciples” has no place here! “God as you understand God” is personal by definition, and by delving into the wide array of topics that McCall does, she shares her understanding in a way that few can. If God, the Spirit of the Universe, the Natural Mystic, or The Force, seems out of reach to you, but you are compelled to learn to see evidence of the presence of a higher power in your life this is a great listen. “God does not make too hard terms with those who seek...” I encourage you to join McCall as she seeks and gives freely of what she finds. The multitude of personalities that share their perspectives make this a truly inclusive journey. There is something for the layman, the intellectual and everyone in between. Looking forward to season 2!
