Description:

Namaste, and welcome to The Mystic Show. Saints and holy men throughout time have been unanimously clear on this one point: Ignoring the unseen spiritual aspects of your life would be the biggest tragedy. This show explores the unseen and otherworldly - Spirituality, Mindfulness, Self-help, Meditation, and How to Actually Live It. Host Chris Curran, with more than 11 years of experience with meditation and spiritual practice, discusses a wide variety of topics including mindfulness, spiritual practice, consciousness, meditation, reality, personal development, philosophy, psychic functioning, death, new physics, and much more. He also reads and discusses selections from ultra-classic books, and sometimes interviews special guests. It is Chris's hope to assist you on your journey of exploring both your inner-self and your universe, so that you may be energized to lead a more balanced and happy life.

Hello there, Just a quick message to let you know that I haven’t abandoned the show or forgotten about you. Personally, I’ve been going through a growth phase (or something like that) for the past 6 months since our last episode in Feb. I’ve tried to record several episodes but it wasn’t meant to be. […]

Groupism, Identity, and Character – Ep.191

2/3/2017
More
Groupism: We choose our “team” in many areas of life and then stick with them and oppose all others. And worse, if we get sucked in completely, we let the group and/or its leader have total power over our own intelligence, wisdom and heart. Human Beings as a whole make up one group. We come […]

Relying More and More on Your Inner Guidance, and Frustration Is a Gift — Ep.190

1/27/2017
More
After a year of not speaking publicly about it, Chris discusses his metamorphosis last year. Frustration... Chris read from Tony Robbins' book about the message that frustration is giving you, and the solution to handling it elegantly. Walk on the "smoother" part of the trail (in someone else's footsteps) for as long as that particular trail is still the one you want to be on. Discomfort prods you -- but be sure to move forward, not backward! Chris has been on an effective spiritual path...

Enjoy my deep conversation with Zach Bellows which we recorded in a park near a coffee shop. He shares so many spiritual insights.

Zach is a teacher, musician and composer. And a person who genuinely wants to know what's beyond our mundane auto-pilot lives. Here are some of the topics we discussed:...

Ushering in the Fall of the Ego! To reduce the ego, of course ;) First Chris encouraged you to sign up for the Mid-Week Pause emails here. Then we discuss the Ego. How does it show up in our lives? Blatantly: A person is disrespectful, obnoxious, they assume they are MUCH more important than others, their time is more important than other people's time, they are totally focused on their possessions, and upset when they don't get every little superficial thing that they want, etc. Subtly:...

One of your fellow listeners, Sean from Vancouver, emailed me with some questions a couple weeks ago, so I invited him to chat with me on the show. It's not an interview; we had a casual conversation about deep spiritual experiences that change your life, strong paradigms that are formed in childhood, religion vs spirituality, the meaning of words used to describe spiritual stuff, balancing the two worlds (material and spiritual), the very subtle danger of expecting "wonderful" spiritual...
