Death is one of the most frightening and awesome of life’s mysteries. Because it is, we’ve developed all manner of mythology about it—including the myth that life is over when we die. But many have experienced, first hand, another reality. And while there are still many who still assert that death is death and life is life and never the twain shall meet; our guest today offers moving and profound information to the contrary. Hollister Rand is an internationally renowned medium. Known for the detailed messages she provides from loved ones living in the spirit world, Hollister is clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient—meaning she can see, hear and sense the presence of spirits. One of her primary messages is that “Life is never over,” and her book, I’m Not Dead, I’m Different: Kids in Spirit Teach Us About Living a Better Life on Earth is the subject of the Authentic Living show today. If you have lost loved ones and are wondering where they are—tune in. You’ll be glad you did.
The world was moved a few years back when Cherie Carter-Scott published her bestselling book, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules. It is a simple, but profound rendition of what we can expect on the journey. Not knowing the simplified rendition of why we are here, and what we can expect can keep us running into the walls we find everywhere in our consciousness. But Carter-Scott’s book provides us with a template for living that will not soon be forgotten once it is absorbed. And we are going to be talking with her today about these rules for the game of life. So, if you are wondering what the heck is going on—tune in. You are not going to want to miss this exciting and powerful show.
Our current understanding of the law of attraction, as it has been set forth for us, is that what we need to be doing to fulfill our lives is thinking positive, imagining ourselves in the place of our dreams, perhaps creating a vision board or two and not allowing ourselves to think or feel anything negative. In this way, we will, by the power of our positive thinking, magnetize those things, places, people, financial means, and events which are certain to fulfill us. But what do we mean by positive and negative? What is a positive thought? What is a positive feeling? What is a negative thought or feeling? What if our definition of positive isn’t really positive at all? And is it possible that through our decision to square off against so-called “negativity” that we are taking away a huge portion of our power? Tune in to find out.
As we’ve tried to implement the law of attraction and attract and manifest all of our dreams, we’ve run into some road blocks that have forced us to question ourselves. Many are advising that we look to the shadow—or the unconscious—to tell us how we are sabotaging ourselves. But the shadow holds far more within it than the darkness about which we typically hear. In fact, for most of us, the shadow also holds within it, the deepest essence of our truest nature. It is this nature toward which the law of attraction is actually driving us. Tune into this show to learn how the law of attraction really works in your life.
Did I just hear that “Dun-Dun” that goes off whenever “Law and Order” comes on? We do get the two mixed up quite a bit—Karma and Law and Order. What’s been passed down to us is a definition of Karma that means that what goes around comes around. So, we can always say to that—expletives deleted—ex-husband or wife, “Yeah, well what goes around comes around!” believing with all of our hearts that they are going to get theirs. Right? And we can say to those selfish, close-minded whatever, whatever politicians that they are going to get theirs too. Then we can wash our hands of the whole affair and assume that in this lifetime or the next, or the next—justice will eventually be done. Dun-Dun! Law and Order. But what if Karma isn’t what goes around comes around? What if it doesn’t fall in that dualistic framework at all? What if the Law of Karma, gives us something much higher, much more powerful and soul-enhancing than Law and Order? Tune in to find out more.
Are you a healer? Do you have a life-goal of becoming a healer? Do you see yourself healing others? Do you carry with you the healer-archetype? Are you a Chiron—Wounded Healer? The healer archetype has thrust itself again through the curtains of the collective unconscious and has basically become a buzz word for the New Age/New Thought book sellers and marketing gurus. The healer archetype presented in the form of a persona, makes a face like a healer. It informs the world around it that if that world will just come to the healer, that world will be healed. Of course, most healers would deny that they have the power to heal the world, but we do believe that we can heal others. We’ve put all kinds of parameters around that, including the notion that the person has to request our healing powers. But seriously, does one person really heal another? Or is all healing really self-healing? Tune in to find out.
Have you ever experienced a deep longing of which the manifestation just seemed to keep eluding you? In this day and age in which many of us are vision boarding and affirming our little hind ends off trying to manifest these longings, we tend to judge ourselves for our inability to come home to these seeming soul desires. But understanding a soul desire and distinguishing it from all the other things that can mimic soul desire is an inner and heroic journey. If, for example, we can start the sentence with “I’ve always wanted to…” that desire could be a soul desire, or it could be a desire that comes from the need to avoid some pain, or escape some seemingly more difficult reality, or to bargain with the so-called fates. So, how do we go about the process of manifesting soul desire if we aren’t even sure what soul desire is? Well, the first process is going to have to be getting to know ourselves at the level of the soul. Want to know more? Tune in—it could change your life.
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.
Somewhere along the way, as we evolved as a species, we developed a concept of worthiness. We decided then that we could be measured as either worthy or unworthy based on our actions, thoughts and emotions. Because we’d made that decision, we devised moral codes to align ourselves with or against, as the measuring stick we would use to determine our worthiness or unworthiness. We needed this measuring stick because we thought that our fortunes in life depended on our worthiness or unworthiness. And so we have built our entire worlds, our thoughts, our motivations and our moods around this concept, now deeply embedded in the archetypal worlds of the unconscious mind and running large portions of the conscious mind. And most of us would acknowledge that we get the short end of this stick—always ending up more unworthy than worthy. But what if this constant measuring were found to be not only unnecessary but completely false? Tune in this Wednesday to find out.
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.
