Streetsmarts and Spirituality

Unfortunately, many of us are trying desperately to avoid having to really participate in the experience of living here on this planet, through many different means. In so doing we miss the growth experience—something our guest today calls “Earth School.” She tells us that our emotions are leading us back to earth school—where we will learn more about life, about ourselves and about spirituality. Carol Kline is far from unfamiliar with radio and TV having served as a reporter and TV and radio anchor both in Japan and in America, even receiving awards as the top female anchor in her area. Today she has her own radio show and she facilitates workshops and offers life coaching and has authored the book “Streetwise Spirituality: 28 Days to Inner Fitness & Everyday Enlightenment,” the subject of our discussion today. Sometimes our spiritual teachings are so ethereal that we can’t get grounded. Today, we are going to get grounded. Don’t miss it.

What is magical as opposed to spiritual thinking?

Many—oh so many—of us are caught up in magical thinking without knowing it. We are magically thinking that we’ll be able to make the abusive husband stop abusing by being a good wife. We are magically thinking that overprotecting our children will help them to arrive at adulthood knowing how to manage life. We are magically thinking that the hounds at the financial doors will just go away if we keep running our vision boards. Collectively we magically thought when we agreed to lower the standards for mortgages and remove the financial rules for Wall Street financiers. And quite often we use magical thinking as a very poor substitute for spiritual thinking. But how do we know? Aren’t we taught to believe that anything is possible? Aren’t we taught to believe that we can move mountains with a mustard seed of faith (or vision boarding and affirming)? This show is going to clarify the difference. Don’t miss it.

Dee Wallace: Turn On Your Bright Light

We all remember Dee Wallace, playing the mother role, in that wonderfully moving and uplifting movie, ET. Well, she’s had an amazing career as actress, playing in other movies, including Cujo, The Howling, Ten, The Frighteners and Critters, staring in four TV series and over 400 commercials. She’s one of Hollywood’s most sought after TV guest stars. And from there, she became a healer and spiritual leader. How did that happen? Her latest book, Bright Light, tells us all about that unorthodox path from actor to spiritual leader while inspiring us all to passionately follow our own heart and creative wisdom to wherever the bright light of the inner self takes us. Through her acting endeavors and the coaching she received she was able to tap into that intuitive river that some call the zone, and simultaneously let go of emotions and issues from her own past to connect with her inner light. This show will be all about how you can do that too.

Therapy and Religion

Once upon a time Therapy and Religion were considered to be separate compartments of the human experience. But now, more and more, we are beginning to see a mixing and blending of religion/spirituality and therapy. Our guest this week has much to share with us about this phenomenon particularly as it relates to two things: 1) the power of relationship and 2) psychoanalysis and Buddhism. Pilar Jennings, PhD is the author of Mixing Minds: The Power of Relationship in Psychoanalysis and Buddhism. Obviously relationship is at the center of both the practice of religion and the practice of therapy. But how do we engage both practices in a therapeutic setting without reducing either to the terms of the other? Can we legitimately explore both in the therapeutic setting trusting that neither will be reduced to the terms of the other? Do you ever wonder if your psychological issues are really spiritual or vice versa? Tune in, you might just walk away with your answer.

The Journey of the Soul

Right this second there are millions of us living in fear of making a mistake, or of what might happen next. This fear is the source of our strategizing, plotting and planning for how we might survive, how we might make things go “right,” even how we might outwit our own fears. Yet even as we are doing this, the soul is on a journey of its own. And it is using these very strategies and fears to bring us to a clearer vision of ourselves. Today, we are going to be talking to an expert on the Journey of the Soul, Simran Singh, publisher of the award-winning 11:11 Magazine, visionary, catalyst coach and the host of her own 7th Wave radio show called 11:11 Radio, on which she has interviewed some of the world’s spiritual giants in order to facilitate our understanding of this journey of the soul. Tune in Wednesday to learn about your own soul’s journey.

Conscious Parenting

According to Dr. Shefahli Tsabary, conscious parenting means turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head. She believes that conscious parenting shifts the epicenter of the parent-child relationship away from the traditional parent-to-child “know it all” approach, to a mutual parent-with-child relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child. With this model, instead of being merely the receiver of the parents’ psychological and spiritual legacy, children function as ushers of the parent’s transformational development. In the traditional model, while parents are trying to lead and mold their children they are also unwittingly passing on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional shallowness. But with Tsabary’s model children serve as mirrors of the parent’s forgotten self, so that both parent and child help each other to be more authentic. You do not want to miss this enlightening and empowering discussion on conscious parenting.
