Many of us have heard of terms like “the Book of Life” generally associated with some kind of eternal library that records our secret, shameful deeds, or even our more overt shameful deeds. But according to Linda Howe, our guest for today, the Akashic Records, also known as the Book of Life are filled with wisdom and energy that are inspirational and supportive for making the fundamental shift from self-reliance to Divine reliance. In other words they are a resource rather than a book filled with all of our bad deeds. Nor do they favor any particular religion, nor are they meant to help us tell our fortunes or manipulate outcomes. Linda is the author of How to Read the Akashic Records, and of Healing through the Akashic Records, and we are going to be talking to her today about how we may access these records and how to use their amazing powers. So if you want access to this resource, tune in, this show is for you.
We tend to think of wisdom in terms that are rather other-worldly. We tend to think that those who are wise are either those who have been taught by a guru or they are the guru. But really, even the guru will tell us that wisdom isn’t taught. It’s received. And it isn’t received from any external teaching. It’s received from some deep resonance within us. So what is the process of attaining wisdom? People speak frequently about “lessons” we are getting in life, through the school of hard knocks and other like schools. But all too often the lessons we learn have to do with how to survive better, how to become better people or how to win friends and influence people. Sometimes the lessons have to do with enjoying life more. But is that wisdom? What is wisdom then? Is it a mood of bliss? A higher self? And once we know what it is, will we still want it? If so, how will we get it? These questions and more will be answered on this week’s show. Don’t miss it!
Historically the body has been blamed for all of man’s errors, his so-called “sins,” and his weaknesses. It makes him sick and it eventually dies. It’s rather like a ball and chain we drag around with us. And the soul is a distant relative, living so far away in heaven that we can’t get to it until we die. And whether we still believe those things or not they are still rolling around in the unconscious as archetypal memory. So, here’s the $64,000 question: Why did we come here in a body if all it is is an encumbrance which we eventually dump in favor of heaven or the next incarnation? Is it the slave of the mind, pushed and cajoled and even whipped into shape? Is it like a devil, meant to tempt us with all manner of intemperance? What’s the point? Well today we are going to delve into these mysteries, with a little humor, and a lot of wisdom. If you are having trouble connecting the dots between body and soul, don’t miss this episode.
We’ve been told, by those who tell, that the Law of Attraction, as we currently understand it, can be found in the Sacred Texts of the various world religions. Well, this show is going to look at those texts to see what they really say. What we will find there is likely to surprise you, for they actually do tell us about a law of attraction, but not the one we’ve come to understand at all. If the sacred texts give us any wisdom, it will not be found in assumption and presupposition that tries to prove itself after the fact. Nor will it be found in taking words out of context or literalizing. Rather it will be found in the actual meaning of the words. So, let’s check this out together and see what we find.
We are so happy to have Dr. E back again to the Authentic Living show to talk to us about her third part in the Sounds True online event series, The Dangerous Old Women, entitled The Joyous Body. We do tend to either focus wholly on the body as image, or leave it out entirely from our conscious experience until it acts up. And we rarely if ever think of the body as a repository of joy. It’s a work horse to be whipped into shape, or it’s just a ball and chain we carry around that sometimes gets us into trouble. But what if the body were incrementally tied into the soul? If that were true, wouldn’t we want to do more with it than just keep it enslaved to the ego? If you don’t quite know what to do with this material essence of who you are, this show is for you. Or, if you struggle with body issues of any kind—this show is for you too. Come learn from one of the world’s most profound keepers of wisdom what gifts your body has to give to you.
What does it mean to forgive? Does it mean that we absolve? That we allow them to “get away with it?” If you are thinking in these terms, then you are not yet ready to forgive. Forgiveness is a process. And it really has nothing to do with the person you are forgiving—unless you are forgiving yourself. In fact, we don’t even start out that process aiming toward forgiveness. Typically, we start it off in pain. Nanice Ellis comes back to the Authentic Living Show again this year, on the day before Thanksgiving, to talk with us about that process and its power to transform. Nanice is the author of seven books, and is a Master NLP Practitioner and Coach, whose wisdom comes from a deep well of experience. If you are worried about your family dinner tomorrow—tune into this show. You’ll be glad you did.
This thing about staying young has become quite an important topic today, with many visiting their doctors regularly to keep up with their Botox shots and many others seeking facial change, and launching body work, vitamin and nutrition programs—all in an effort to sustain the grace of youth. But our guest today tells us that the body already knows how to stay young. She is Caroline Sutherland a medical intuitive who has written several books in a series called “The Body Knows,” the latest of these and the topic of today’s discussion called “The Body Knows How to Stay Young.” She has answers for the chronic degenerative breakdown that leads to mobility issues, decrease in hearing and vision, osteoporosis, arthritis and memory loss. And she offers four components of a vibrant-aging program that demonstrate the body’s wisdom and capacity to self-repair. You don’t want to miss this show!
What would it be like to know that you were dying? Would life look any different than it does from the perspective of your routine everyday experiences? We strongly suspect that it would but we don’t want to have to be close to dying to find out. Well, this week we are going to get to hear from those who are on the edge of this precipice and learn from their experiences rather than having to go there ourselves. Death is an amazing mystery, as is life and the fine line between the two. Bob and Judy’s book ”Life is a Gift: Inspiration from the Soon Departed” will grant us the gift of insight and wisdom that comes from those who are currently living very close to that line. Don’t miss this beautiful experience.
There is definitely a shift taking place on a global level, a shift in which people are beginning to look inward for the answers to life’s basic and profound questions. Our guest today, Beverly Lanzetta, PhD, will help us all understand this emerging consciousness. Author of six books, including, “Emerging Heart: Global Spirituality and the Sacred” and “Radical Wisdom: A Feminist Mystical Theology” she has a unique and beautiful understanding of this global consciousness. Professor of Religious Studies at several liberal arts colleges, and ordained Interfaith Minister and monastic, Beverly has spent the last 30 years guiding individuals from diverse backgrounds and spiritual orientations in the contemplative live. Her own contemplative journey has led her to a deep understanding from which we will all today benefit. We are all together experiencing this shift in consciousness.
