Jonathan EllerbyI had a wonderful interview with a very deep and spiritual leader, Jonathan Ellerby, Ph.D.  His new book entitled, “Return to the Sacred-Ancient Pathways to Spiritual Awakenings“,  is a great book.  We explored the 12 Master Paths and Practices that have transformed the lives of countless saints, mystics, masters and the sages since the beginning history.

In Jonathan’s new book, you’ll find what you need to discover your spiritual personality and choose the path that will lead you toward realization of boundless joy and a lifelong journey of meaning.   I had the opportunity in our time together to ask Jonathan about the Mystic Mind-Set attitudes that can assist you in transforming your practice.  I loved the advice that I received from Jonathan.  He said that when your spiritual practice ceases to help you to become more self-aware and spiritually connected, revisit the following list before changing paths:

  1. Compassion: No Harm.  Be kind, empowering, patient and forgive yourself and others as you carry out your practice.
  2. Optimism: No Fear. Always ask yourself, What can I learn from this moment? What am I grateful for? Never let go of hope and the infinite field of possibility.  Don’t let fear change your mind, as it’s only a sign that there’s something to learn, pay attention to, or to heal.
  3. Observation: No Judgment. Self-awareness is key. Observe yourself during your practice, and don’t criticize or judge your experience.
  4. Contemplation: No Striving.  With each new experience in your practice take time to reflect deeply on what it means, what it reveals and what it teaches.   Learn to listen to your innermost thoughts and feelings.
  5. Dedication: No Procrastination. Stay committed and willing.  On some days, enduring discomfort will be all that you can manage.  Focus and dedication are necessary.
  6. Humor: No Ego. Have Fun! Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself or even your deepest beliefs.
  7. Surrender: No Attachment. Let go of constant questioning and controlling.  Let your unique process unfold with your full participation.
  8. Intention: No Doubt.  Your intention isn’t a goal to be fixated on but a deep clarity and longing for what it is you seek.

Jonathan is a wonderful teacher that has written a practical book for the spiritual aspirant who wants to awaken to a deeper level of consciousness and spirituality.  I encourage all of my listeners to check out Return to the Sacred-Ancient Pathways to Spiritual Awakenings.   Jonathan is very authentic and the content is rich, deep and very moving.

Yehuda Berg This is a great interview with a wonderfully knowledgeable author, Yehuda Berg, who has tremendous passion for helping people understand Kabbalah and how it can help them transform their lives positively.

In my interview with Yehuda, we explore the wisdom of Kabbalah which explains how the world operates according to universal spiritual laws that, like gravity, influences our lives every day at every moment, whether or not we are aware of it’s existence.  The amazing thing is that these spiritual laws affect our lives in a far more profound way than physical laws do. We learn how to act in harmony with these laws so we can learn how to truly control what happens to us and dramatically improve our relationships, health, careers, finances and overall quality of life.

Yehuda and I discuss the power of consciousness, and his beliefs on where consciousness evolves from as to better understand our deeper purpose and connection with a higher spirit. Kabbalah can truly help one find and make a deep spiritual connection.  It provides you with the wisdom, tools and deep understanding to turn your life into whatever you want it to be.  Whether you want to make dramatic changes or just want a better understanding of yourself and the life you’re living.

Kabbalah: The Power to Change Everything is a progressive manual for daily life to awaken consciousness and create personal and global change.  Yehuda Berg examines the problematic areas of politics, religion, environment and economy and demonstrates how everything , no matter how bleak can be transformed by shifting our minds.

You are going to enjoy my interview with a fascinating person with a wonderful perspective on life, on how we can change everything by just changing our minds.

I encourage you to read Kabbalah: The Power to Change Everything if you are exploring your spiritual path and would like to learn more about the power of this ageless wisdom.  It has transformed millions of lives throughout the world, and will transform yours as well.

Larry CraneLove Yourself and Let the Other Person Have it Your Way” by Larry Crane is based on the teachings of Lester Levenson and the technique he developed called the “Release Technique”.  Levenson was a very intelligent man, as a matter of fact he was a physicist and engineer.  Intellectually he was brilliant but emotionally he longed for happiness and love.  Levenson came to the end of his rope, when his health started to fail him and he knew he needed to do something. He realized that to increase love in his life he needed to let go of the non-loving feelings.  Sounds simple enough doesn’t it?

The Release Technique that I dialogue with Larry Crane about will assist you in letting go of the non-loving feelings.  Larry discovered Lester’s teachings as a result of almost committing suicide. He was unhappy yet he had all of the material possessions that anyone could want.  Larry says that the day he met Lester was the single greatest day of his life.

For Larry, it’s all about results. “It’s not what you say, it’s what you do,” are words Larry often repeats. “Talking about love, talking about what love is, talking about how to be loving is not the answer,” says Larry. “Actually doing it is the answer. Doing it, not talking about it.”

Don’t resist loving yourself.  Blocking those feelings prevents you from moving forward both emotionally and spiritually.  If you want real happiness and joy in your life, it is all about loving yourself and those around you.  Letting go is the answer to having loving relationships in your life.  The release technique is the secret to letting go and finding love and happiness in your life.

According to Larry human love is selfish.  Divine love is completely selfless.  Real love is winning the universe, not just one person but every person, every being.  Real love, divine love is constant, persistent acceptance of all the beings in the universe.

Will Marre I have been a fan of Will Marrè’s for a long time.  His workshops and writings are fantastic!!! He is a joy to listen to and  dialogue with.

His new book entitled, “Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner“,  is designed to enlighten and move his readers to action.  All of us can admit that we live in a world that is constantly changing.  Our lives have been moving at a faster pace, and we are looking for more meaning and purpose in our personal and professional lives.

Will’s new book ” Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner” is written to get you thinking about your personal promise.  What is is that you would do to make a difference in the world?  What is your personal promise to yourself and your family?

Will asks you to “change how you think about change.”  To create a world of sustainable abundance which means to find the pulse of life we can maintain that doesn’t burn us out or exhaust us but enables us to be fully present in each moment filled with both gratitude and new solutions.

If we are to live lives filled with sustainable abundance, then as leaders we need to be Real Leaders.  We need to be responsible, ethical, create abundance and a legacy.  When we look at our world from a real leadership perspective our challenges become opportunities, and our decisions are made with the whole world in mind.

Will encourages individuals to know themselves, to dig deep within themselves and do some soul searching.  Why are you here?  What is your promise, and how can you fulfill it?

As the author articulates,  soul as I mean the word is not some poetic spiritual abstraction or article of religious dogma, but the core essence of who we are as living breathing, feeling, thinking human beings.  Our soul is the deepest dimension of our awareness, as silent intelligence that underlies all of our mental and emotional functions.  Our soul is not the object of our thinking.  It is the thinker.  The “me” before the thoughts.  is is the sacred essence of our individual identity.

So if you are looking to search your soul, and find a place within yourself that resonates with the essence of your being and from this place be moved to take action and make a difference in this world, then I not only highly recommend “Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner” I also recommend that you watch some of Will’s great video’s on Save the World and Still Be Home for Dinner by clicking here.

You are going to love this interview with Will Marrè, and I know you will want to read this book more than once to really dig into the essence of the message.

Lou CassaraI have been a personal friend with Lou Cassara for over six years.  We met at a Spirit in Business conference in Santa Fe, NM.  Lou was attending the conference to better understand the concepts behind the triple bottom line for business. If you are not aware of the triple bottom line, it is people, planet and profits.

Lou has always been a trendsetter when it came to working with his financial services clients.  He is part of a very prestigious group of men and women who make up the top one half of one percent in the insurance industry.

His book, “From Selling to Serving“, is about the process that Lou has developed to help him stay in the top of his industry, and he explains the very important aspects of how to better understand and work with clients/customers in any business.  His “Client Creator Process” has been taught to thousands of sales and marketing people throughout the financial services and has helped so many sales people understand the simplicity of attracting and retaining customers.

Lou has found out that how you communicate with your clients accounts for 85% of the relationship.  Yet most sales professionals spend only 15% of their time developing these vital skills and abilities.   People buy from people.  Relationships, not products are the key.  Changing the way you think about these relationships, and moving from a selling to serving mindset creates unlimited opportunity.

I hope you enjoy this interview with a true master in his profession, and someone who will teach you how to attract, connect and commit by aligning intention with actions.

Victoria MoranWhat fun it was interviewing Victoria Moran again.  She is a wonderful author, and has written many inspiring books.

Living a Charmed Life is one of those easy to read entertaining books that everyone can get something out of.  The book is a compilation of action-inspired essays.  It invites the reader to discover the magical element of every nanosecond of your time on earth!  Each essay in every one of the fifty chapters is an opportunity to learn, laugh and find a alternative attitude to help you through your day. The book covers topics such as living richly, staying close to what makes you come alive, and how to be completely, utterly yourself.

Moran emphasizes that happiness is possible for anyone of any age in any circumstance. Living a charmed life is your birthright, and it’s one that you can start to claim as soon as you take to heart-and put into action-the practical and spiritual tips you’ll find in this book.  The lucky charms, honed from Victoria’s own life experiences, will elevate your attitude, change the way you see  yourself and will help you to improve every aspect of your life including your health, relationships, finances, and peace of mind even in these challenging times.

Victoria emphasizes the importance of doing what brings you meaning and joy.  She says that for most people this is usually something simple like cooking, gardening, music, volunteer work or exercise. She also states to watch your words, for they are very powerful. She also suggests  keep good company for the downers will bring you down and to to avoid them if at all possible.  Her book is filled with wonderful stories and is positive, inspiring and uplifting.  I would recommend this book to anyone who would like a positive daily injection!!!

Elisabeth FaytElisabeth Fayt’s new book entitled, “Paving it Forward“, is a must read for anyone who would like to learn how to better visualize a better tomorrow. It is an instructional manual which shows you how to pave your life forward.

In our interview together, we discuss how her life was positively influenced by the great Indian Saint Paramahansa Yogananda.  Elisabeth is a devotee of Self-Realization Fellowship and states that when she read the, “Autobiography of a Yogi”, that it changed her life forever.  She  studied and devoted some years of her life to the Self-Realization Fellowship organization.

Elisabeth believes that the act of “pre-paving” is consciously choosing how you want to look, live and feel through every part of your day and every part of your life.

Pre-paving is telling the Universe what you want before it happens.  It is a form of intention that “lines up the energy” so that you can easily manifest what you desire.  Elisabeth states that your vibration works as a magnet, attracting to you all of the people, events and circumstances in your life. The goal is to raise the vibration so you begin attracting the good things in life that you have always wanted.  The moment you begin positively pre-paving, your vibration rises immediately.

I love the way that Elisabeth has organized her book.  It is perfect for the reader.  Each section starts with an opportunity to affirm your pre-paving for the day or for something that you are attempting to manifest in your life.  It sets the energy in motion for you to manifest your thoughts and ideas, then Elisabeth provides supportive stories and ideas to tie the particular pre-paving thought to what you are attempting to manifest in your life.  You can pick up the book in any spot or use the index to find a particular area that you wish to pre-pave, and you are on your way to manifesting your desires.

Elisabeth speaks about your emotional guidance system, and that negative feelings are a blessing and a gift.  She states that when you feel a negative feeling, it is a sign that your thoughts are not taking you in the direction you want to go.  If you want to stay focused then pre-paving is a positive way to reinforce your path so that you can achieve your aspirations.

I know you are going to love this interview with Elisabeth Fayt.  If you want to learn more about her workshops and other programs please visit her website by clicking here.

Peggy McCollThe Won Thing“,   is an interesting title for a book, and Peggy Mc Coll is certainly well qualified to write a book about “The Won Thing“.  So just what is this all about?  It truly is about her personal journey to find fulfillment, happiness and peace within.

Like many people, she was constantly looking outside of herself for happiness.  As as you can expect, happiness, fulfillment and joy were ever elusive until she found the secret that these things are not an outside job, they are attained from someone who is happy within for what and who they are.

Nothing is going to satisfy you if you are looking beyond yourself.  No amount of money, fast cars, sex, clothes, big houses and the material possessions of life.  In other words there is no one thing, it is your ability to not be attached to any of the material and go within for your true peace.

As Peggy writes, happiness begins within.  She suggest regular updating of your affirmations and to express gratitude for your circumstances. When you create the internal condition for happiness within yourself, you shift into a positive emotional state, and the universe responds by matching your external circumstances. It doesn’t always seem this way , but that’s because you’re probably not always aware of how much inner turmoil you have.  If in your subconscious mind you feel sadness, the universe will attract situations to you that reflect sorrow.

The Won Thing is your personal recipe for joy, satisfaction and a sense of purpose, and it combines the following elements:

  • Taking responsibility for your own life.
  • Managing your thoughts and emotions
  • Setting and achieving your goals
  • Giving to others unconditionally out of a sense of personal passion.
  • Feeling grateful
  • Attending to the small stuff and taking pride in your work.
  • Being happy.

Come join with me as I explore with Peggy Mc Coll her life, and the important lessons she learned along the way about “The Won Thing“.  If you would like to learn more about Peggy and her books and workshops please click here for more information.

Ken Foster I recently had the good fortune of being introduced to Ken Foster the author of, “Ask and You will Succeed.”  His book is certainly a wonderful approach to going deep within and asking some very important questions about your purpose, values and mission in life.  Each one of the eight sections of the book are packed full of very important questions that you need to ask yourself  to look at your life from the inside out.  What are you limiting beliefs?  How might you shift your thinking to overcome those beliefs?

Ken also addresses the all important spiritual aspects of your life, and as a matter of fact, as you listen to this podcast carefully listen for the importance he places on a spiritual balance, and tapping into your intuition.   I believe that his book is a wonderful tool that can be utilized to guide you into going deeper than you may have ever gone before in determining what is truly important to you and through these insights determine how you can be of service to our planet.

By utilizing the questions in the book, you’ll uncover the true nature of your own mind.  If you ask the right questions and do the work, you’ll find that prosperous thinking will flow into every aspect of your life effortlessly, relieving you of the stressful, negative thoughts that block your creativity and halt your drive for success.   Through the process of asking and answering these wise questions, you’ll learn to live in harmony with yourself, succeed in business, improve your physical health, build strong relationships, and engender fulfillment, energy, and enthusiasm for life.

I hope that you enjoy my interview with Ken, and the great dialogue about the benefits in asking the right questions to help in gaining clarity in your life.  If you would like more information about Ken Foster and his coaching and workshops, please click here to access his website.
