Jeffrey-Brantley-M.D.-color-headshot-175x261Dr Jeffrey Brantley is probably one of the most relaxing, calm authors I have spoken with in a very long time.  He is the kind of man that makes you feel right at home no matter what.  His charm and warmth are certainly felt through the thoughtful and deliberate mannerism he conveys in our interview together.  It is no wonder that he is a man who has studied and practiced the art of mindfulness, meditation and stress reduction for much of his adult life.

His new book entitled, “Calming Your Anxious Mind” is a wonderful guide that will provide the reader with insights, and instruction on the art of mindfulness, mediation and the use of compassion to help in the reduction of anxiety, fear and panic.

Dr. Brantley explains that rampant anxiety is a modern problem, and that mindfulness is an ancient practice that holds the solution to it.  In this ground breaking book, “Calming the Anxious Mind“, Dr. Brantley shows the reader how to apply mindfulness practices such as meditation, “paying attention on purpose,” and accepting your thoughts and feelings to your anxiety symptoms.  Along the way he offers inspiring stories and accessible discussions about the biological effects of mindfulness.  Dr. Brantley dispels the myths about meditation and mindfulness, so any reader who thinks that beginning a mindfulness program means packing up and moving to Tibet can rest assured these practices can be integrated into their everyday lives.

According to Dr. Brantley, over 25 million Americans currently suffer from some from of anxiety.  In his new book “Calming the Anxious Mind” they find avenues of treatment that they can use any time to free themselves from anxiety’s grip.

I know you are going to love my interview with Dr. Jeffrey Brantley for he is extremely insightful into the benefits associated with the practice of mindfulness and meditation.  Your life can really change just by listening and practicing what Dr. Brantley is advocating.

Dilip Abayasekara Ph.DI thoroughly enjoyed my interview with Dilip Abayasekara.  His new book entitled, “The Path of the Genie“, is a wonderful  book about the lessons learned by Aladdin.  In my interview with Dilip we explore these lessons and how they can apply to our lives to bring us more happiness, meaning and purpose. Based on the truths derived from the story of Aladdin, “The Path of the Genie“, extracts powerful examples for living from pivotal points in Aladdin’s story.  Highlights such as rubbing the lamp, getting the Genie’s help, winning the love of the princess, and the sacrificing his own desires in order to grant freedom to the Genie are almost magically changed into lessons for life: getting rid of negative forces and discovering the transforming powers of humanity, self discovery, and self-offering.

As Dilip articulates so well through this book, you are not an accident of nature.  There is a purpose and meaning behind your life.   The hard part is finding that purpose and meaning.  The path to finding your purpose and living out your destiny is what “The Path of the Genie” is all about.  So, just what is your heart’s desire?  How can you achieve this desire, and why is it so important to you?

If you are asking yourself these kind of questions and would like to explore the answers that dwell within you, then I highly recommend reading this entertaining and enjoyable book that provides you with the lesson and guidance to find your purpose in life.  My interview with Dilip is wonderful and will be a real stepping stone for those seeking to answer these life long questions about their purpose in life.

Byron BelitsosI like to be open minded and provide a place for authors to make a contribution to the expansion of our consciousness.  In my interview with Byron Belitsos on his book entitled, “The Center Within“, we explore the mysteries and facts behind the Urantia book.  I have to admit that this was the first time I had been exposed to this philosophy but found the ideas presented by Byron to be quite interesting and worth exploring further on my own.

The Urantia Book, first published by Urantia Foundation in 1955, claims to have been presented by celestial beings as a revelation to our planet, Urantia. Many who have read it accept this assertion.

The writings in the Urantia Book instruct us on the genesis, history and destiny of humanity and on our relationship with God the Father. They present a unique and compelling portrayal of the life and teachings of Jesus. They open new vistas of time and eternity to the human spirit and offer new details of our ascending adventure in a friendly and carefully administered universe.

The Urantia Book offers a clear and concise integration of science, philosophy and religion. Those who read and study it believe that The Urantia Book has the capacity to make a significant contribution to the religious and philosophical thinking of people worldwide.

The Urantia Book is not a “religion” per se. It builds upon the religious heritages of the past and present, encouraging a personal, living religious faith.

In my interview with Byron about his book, “The Center Within“, we learn about his book which is designed to simplify and amplify the teaching of the Urantia Book through a series of practical lessons. It is the first of a series of books based on the Teaching Mission, and the first ever trade book presenting the spiritual essence of the Urantia Book.

So open up your minds and come explore with me something that could very well be a new spiritual teaching.  I know you will enjoy my interview with Byron Belitsos the author of “The Center Within”.

Diane Hennacy Powell M.D.Diane Hennacy Powell asks a very important question that has plagued scientists for century’s, what is consciousness?  In her new book “The ESP Enigma” Diane explores  what the source of our internal monologue is, and more importantly where might is originate from?

Over the past few decades several well designed and rigorously supervised experiments have documented the existence of telepathic interconnections, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, and out-of-body experiences.  Mainstream science has largely ignored these data because they all defy the traditional model of consciousness as being solely the product of brain chemistry and wiring.   Building on these experiments Powell constructs a new theory of consciousness.  Integrating concepts from physics, neuroscience, and other disciplines, she offers an insightful and intriguing explanation of ESP, and explains how the existence of psychic abilities expands our understanding and application of consciousness.

In our interview together we explore the aspects of consciousness,  and how psychic powers are available to anyone.  The secret to tapping into these powers and much more.  I know that everyone listening to this audio podcast has at one time or another had a strong intuition about something, and either acted upon it or did not listen to the internal monologue and wished they had.  It is these psychic powers that we all have that can provide us with so much valuable information and in many cases reliable and accurate information on actions we should or should not take.

Just last evening I was watching a PBS special on Edgar Cayce who has been called the “sleeping prophet,” the “father of holistic medicine,” and the most documented psychic of the 20th century.  Here is a man that stated that we all have psychic powers, and that all we have to do is tap into them.  His story is fascinating, and should you be interested in learning more please click on his name above to link to his foundations website.

I know you are going to enjoy my interview with Dr. Diane Hennacy Powell as we explore the depths of the enigma behind psychic phenomena.  If you would like to learn more about Dr. Powell and here research please click here to access her website.

David M. CorbinMy good friend David Corbin has just released his new book entitled, “Illuminate: Harnessing the Positive Power of Negative Thinking”.  Isn’t that a great title for a book?  Not only is it a great title, the concepts presented here are wonderful.

How many of you when you have been challenged or confronted with a negative situation take the time to learn from it?  Many times we divert our energy and move in the opposite direction of the challenge hoping that it will go away.

In David’s new book he dispels the myths about constantly remaining positive to find solution.  This is very contradictory to the traditional Positive Mental Attitude approach.  David believes that if you illuminate the negative and question authority, become proactive and think outside the box that it will help you find solutions to your challenges. He states that we need to develop critical thinking skills and be unafraid to face the truth.

David’s book is filled with examples and experiences of countless individuals who have discovered that negative thinking can bring about unparalleled positive results in anyone’s work and life.  So if you want to make breakthroughs in your life look at what is not working and learn from your mistakes.  I love the analogy in this book about Thomas Edison.  If you remember Edison took 300 tries to develop the light bulb.  He was reminded about how many times he failed.  And his answer was, “I now know over 300 ways not to make a light bulb.”  What a great analogy for life, just keep trying even if you are failing at something and at some point you are going to have a breakthrough.

I am sure glad that Edison illuminated the negative, because if he had not we would all probably still be in the dark.If you want to know more about my good friend and author David Corbin you can visit his website by clicking here.  He is really a wonderful man with a big heart and lots to teach us about harnessing the positive power of negative thinking.
