Rediscovering Yourself and Healing After Grief and Trauma

Michele was widowed in her thirties when her husband was hit while riding his bicycle. She discovered that: “We can't forget the lessons that grief and trauma teach us. And if we determine that the only way to consider ourselves healed is to return to the same self we were before trauma entered our lives, we are bound to fail. Instead, I believe that our work is to integrate every life experience, the wonderful and the terrible, into our lives and to view our healing through a lens that encourages and welcomes personal evolution--even if that evolution is fueled by trauma.” Michele’s healing process is helpful for anyone who has experienced the transition of a loved one, and any trauma such as physical injury, life-altering illness, violence, or abuse. Please join us Thursday to learn how we can integrate all our life experiences to become more resilient, strong, courageous, and transformed.

Understanding Wisdom and How We Can All Become Wiser

Dr. Jeste says wise people are smart, warmhearted, compassionate, empathetic, sophisticated, open minded, good listeners, reflective, unselfish, problem focused, trusted advisors, able to see from many perspectives, and willing to act on their beliefs. They are happy, aware of their gifts and blind spots, and make others feel heard. People who are wise instinctively know how to handle personal problems that overwhelm most people. They are calm and resolute amidst chaos and uncertainty. Others want to be more like them, and now they can be. As Dr. Jeste says, The modern rise in suicides, opioid abuse, loneliness, and internet addiction is damaging people’s health and destroying the social fabric. His research shows us how we can nurture and grow every facet of wisdom to face these challenges and others more effectively. Please join us Thursday to learn how to identify, understand, nurture, and promote the behaviors of wisdom that are already within all of us.

Communicate with Trees, Unlock Their Magic, & Help Save Them

We’ve heard a lot about the benefits of trees for our physical and emotional health and well-being. Did you know that trees are also healers and magical spiritual beings? Some trees are as old as 9000 years, and they communicate with each other through their roots. Here is what Dr. Kac Young says about the book she’ll be talking about on my show: “I am so excited about my new book Magical Trees: A Guidebook for Finding the Magic in Everyday Trees using Crystals, Spells, Essential Oils and Rituals. Now is the time for this book to reach as many people as we can. The message in this book is personal and global. Trees need to be loved and sustained because they are so important to the body and soul of humans and to the longevity of our planet. In this book I outline everything we need to know about 50 trees and how we can use them for healing, magic, rituals, and sustenance. I hope you will join me in celebrating the wonder of trees, their priceless gifts and the knowledge we can share about how very special they truly are. Without trees humans cannot survive.” Please join us next Thursday to learn about how to communicate with trees, unlock their magic, and help save them from extinction.

Transform Relationship Conflicts & Heal Childhood Wounds

Mass shootings, Covid, climate change, and all the stressors in the world and in our personal and work lives has caused most of us to be in a constant state of anxiety which often explodes into anger toward the people closest to us. A gesture, a tone of voice, or even a gentle touch can put us back into an earlier time in our life when we felt we weren’t good enough, we weren’t lovable, or we were in physical danger. It takes us out of the present moment and throws us into the past. Our survival brain takes over and triggers the fight, flight, or freeze response. Our logical mind is no longer in charge, and we act in ways that damage relationships important to us. This does not have to be the case. We can learn to respond, not react, and go from triggered to tranquil. Please join us Thursday to learn how to recognize our own triggers and those of people we care about, and techniques to heal ourselves and relationship misunderstandings.

Becoming the Peace You Want to See in the World

Peace in the world begins with peace within each of us. As we change, everyone and everything around us changes. Quantum Physics teaches us that everything vibrates at a specific frequency. As we release fear, anxiety, shame, blame, and other negative emotions and thoughts, our vibration increases. Negative thoughts and emotions have a low frequency whereas positive thoughts and emotions have a high frequency. The more we stay in the high vibrations of love, gratitude, kindness, respect, harmony, balance, and peace, the higher our frequency is. The positive energy spreads to everyone in our lives, even the people we pass on the street. The result is that change in the world happens by each of us becoming more positive and thereby raising our frequency. Please join us Thursday to learn techniques to help you become the peace you want to see in the world.

Letting Go of Nothing: Relax Your Mind and Find Your True Nature

Shame, blame, guilt, and judgment are all habits of the mind. We can choose to stay in that uncomfortable way of thinking and living or we can choose to accept life and stop letting it hurt us. When I realized that all my experiences have helped form who I am, I began to experience life differently. Since I don’t know which parts of my life I could remove and still be me, I chose to acknowledge that all of it has helped me become my true self. Recognizing the gifts of learning and growth in each experience has brought me peace and gratitude. We may not be able to control what happens to us, but we can control how we think about it which changes how we feel long term. Please join us Thursday to learn how we can free our minds of pain and negativity, and feel the beauty, love, and peace that is available to all of us.

God, Love, and The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness

“Sometimes things happen that reveal an apparent pattern, plan, and meaning to the workings of the world. When this revelation occurs, it's as if the Universe winks at us to say, ‘now you're in on the secret!’ The ‘secret’ is the realization that an infinite, unitary intelligence pervades everything--what author Stephen G Post calls infinite Mind…and that love is a kind of metaphysical glue that holds things together and provides a delightful fizz to the whole show.” writes Dr. Larry Dossey, MD. My guest helps us understand the importance of synchronicity in our lives and how to recognize it; the importance of love, kindness, and generosity; and the hidden mystery of human connectedness. He prescribes volunteering for health, happiness, resilience, and longevity based on research showing volunteering lowers levels of inflammation, cholesterol, and the body mass index, and helps those with mental health issues such as depression and schizophrenia. Please join us Thursday to explore Stephen Post’s deep understanding of spirituality and how love drives out fear and heals us and the world.

PTSD: Discovering Hope, Healing, Strength, and Silver Linings

June is National PTSD Awareness Month, which is why I scheduled Dr. Laurie to be with us this month. As Dan Rather says in the foreword to her new book: “When it comes to teaching how to not just survive life’s hardest blows but to eventually thrive, nothing beats a teacher who has learned through personal experience. Once a seasoned journalist but now a practicing psychotherapist, Dr. Laurie Nadel has written a compelling book that guides us through coping with life’s most troubling times.” Dr. Laurie lost her home during Hurricane Sandy. What she gained were true friendships and the gifts of humility, patience, empathy, forgiveness, and growth. She followed her intuition and then discovered that scientific research supported her. As we discuss in every show, there are always silver linings to even the most challenging situations. Please join us Thursday to learn how to heal from PTSD and embrace the gifts that give us hope healing, and strength.

Women Embracing Power: True Leadership & Healthy Relationships

Marsha is fearless in speaking the truth about challenges that are unique to women in leadership positions. They include misogyny from men, other women, and even from within ourselves. Aggression is not considered acceptable when it comes from women leaders; strong boundaries are often harder to set because of expectations; and conflict is something some women avoid to keep the peace rather than using it to create effective solutions. Women also have the strengths of empathy and compassion, which are currently the most sought-after qualities for leaders today. As women grow in our leadership and relationship skills and our support of each other, our authentic leadership style emerges. Marsha gives us the gift of a deep dive into what makes women unique and how we can look closely at our own strengths and challenges to become the best leaders and people we can be. Please join us Thursday to learn how women can enhance our strengths and grow stronger and wiser in the areas that were neglected in our education at home and in school.

Conquer Your Karmic Relationships, Heal, and Restore Your Soul

“It is our birthright: To acknowledge a higher power, no matter what you call it. To trust that every person was born perfect and is deeply loved by their Creator.

It is what we need for peace of mind, an understanding of unity, of connection, and of oneness, and for peace on earth. The challenge of our time is to restore our own soul and the soul of the world.

Becoming Happier Starting Right Now

What steals our joy? Guilt, feelings of not deserving, beliefs that life is hard, “shoulds,” ”musts,” “could haves,” worry, fear, stress, and the list continues. 90% of our self-talk is negative, and we spend 1 to 8 hours a day worrying when only 8% of what we worry about happens. My guest believes that we were born to be happy. False beliefs, expectations, and allowing too much clutter into our lives interferes with our joy. Change begins with discovering what is most important to us. Sound too simple to be possible? Maybe it can be that simple.

Simple Techniques to Identify and Manage Your Anxiety

“For years I did not know what ‘it’ was. I felt anxiety as depression, panic attacks, procrastination, headaches, exhaustion and sometimes I felt physically ill. I have made it a passion to find out how I could change channels in my brain to manage anxiety and live to my fullest potential, live my dreams, and thrive” writes my guest. I understand what she is saying. I didn’t diagnose my own anxiety until my mid 70’s and that was after 21 years of therapy with two different counselors. When we don’t know what’s wrong, it’s hard to find the correct treatment. Taking aspirin for a headache stops the pain temporarily, but it doesn’t stop the problem that caused the headache. The American Psychological Association predicted a mental health crisis this year because of the trauma we have all been subjected to, including the pandemic, war, mass shootings, climate change, natural disasters, social injustice, and the economy. Anxiety disorders, depression, and suicides are all increasing, but there is help available. Please join us Thursday to learn simple techniques to help you identify and manage your anxiety and become a self-empowered, happy anxiety warrior.

Become the Wise Elder: Inner Personal and Soul Work

Our attitudes toward aging dramatically influence the length and quality of our lives. In the United States, people with positive attitudes toward aging live 7 and a half years longer, and those with positive beliefs about memory retention have 30% less memory loss. In China, people with positive attitudes toward aging have the same sharp memories, hearing, and physical functioning as their grandchildren. Aging does not have to be about loss of our physical capabilities. It can be a time of personal growth, creativity, and spiritual development. We can heal our painful emotions, negative memories, thoughts, and beliefs, forgive ourselves and others, accept and love ourselves, and be grateful for the wisdom we have gained from a life well lived. We can do the inner work with our soul and become authentically who we are.

Wellness: Ancient Wisdom for a Healthy, Happy, Beautiful Life

Wellness practices are meant for everyone and can be easy to implement, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, income, or social status. “The lack of representation within the wellness industry is palpable, from practitioners and advocates to brands that seemingly cater to only one type of audience — wealthy, white Westerners,” writes Ciares. “Wellness is not for the privileged few. Wellness is a state of living that applies to all living creatures — humans, animals, and plants. And the most popular wellness practices have been practiced for millennia by people all over the world.” Ciares’ own healing journey from debilitating physical conditions to vibrant health have fueled her desire to share specific wellness practices, like alternative medicine, affordable plant-based whole foods, lazy-proof movement, nature, and music, to help people of all backgrounds. She encourages us to trust ourselves to determine which practices are best for us. Please join us Thursday to discover what could lead you to a healthier, stronger, happier version of yourself.

Discover Your Divine Genius by Unlearning Limiting Beliefs

In my 40’s, I had the thought that we spend the first half of our lives going as far away from ourselves as possible, and if we’re lucky, we spend the next half of our lives coming back to ourselves. I think this is what the “mid-life crisis” is all about. We discover that we’ve been misled into believing that what really matters is the outward signs of success: fame, fortune, a fancy car and house, and the socially acceptable spouse and children. This was my guest’s life until his business and marriage failed followed by estrangement from his children, bitterness, depression, anger, and loneliness. This led him on a journey into spiritual teachings and unlearning all the beliefs that had led him into a false life. Without the right foundation, when the trappings of success are gone, there is nothing to hold us together. Adam’s search led him to The 13 Universal Wisdom Teachings and developing a process to shed false beliefs and values that separate us from our Divine Genius. Please join us Thursday to learn how to reconnect with our authentic creative, loving, and abundant life force.

The Awakened Soul: Discovering the Light Within

Life becomes easier when we know we are not alone. With their assistance, we can discover our life purpose, recognize our deepest wounds, and learn how to heal ourselves.

Please join us Thursday to learn about our core wounds, unconscious programming, and how to become the bright light that we truly are.
