Intentionally is a how we all strive to live our lives. The question is how frequently do we live a life focused on our intention?

In my recent interview with Mallika Chopra we discuss her new book entitled ” Living with Intent“.  Even the daughter of Deepka Chopra had her own messy journey to purpose, peace and joy.  As he points out in our interview she struggled managing a business, motherhood and balancing between all of the demand on her life.   Mallika was taught at a very young age growing up in her home to set intentions and have a daily practice of meditation, but like all of us she got off track and had to take a strong look at how she was living her life.

How many of you set intentions daily before your feet hit the ground?  How many of you give gratitude for all that you have daily?  Just these two practices can have a significant impact on your happiness, joy and fulfillment in life.  Millika has an acronym for “INTENT”.  “I” stand for Incubate, “N” for Notice, “T” for Trust, “E’ is for Express, “N” is for Nuture, “T” is for Take.  Intention are expressions of who we aspire to be as individuals-physically, emotionally, spiritually as members of our families and communities.

If you are looking to live your life with more intentionally, peace, joy and happiness then I recommend that you listen to this wonderful interview with Millika Chopra about her new book “Living with Intent“.

I recently interviewed Ariyana a spiritual aspirant with an amazing message about her new book “Light Atonement“.  As most who commit their lives to helping people make a spiritual transformation they start from ordinary beginnings, and this is true of Ariyana as well.  She embarked on this journey because she knew their was a larger purpose.

I encourage you to listen to our interview together as Ariyana guides you through her personal journey and you learn more about how she connects with guides from other dimensions.  Through mediation, psychics, crystals and other means, Ariyana develops her abilities and begins unraveling the mystery of this purpose and shares it with us in this interview.  In her book “Light Atonment”  she shares her hard-earned wisdom and offers reflections that will help the reader find the meaning and fulfillment that is often so elusive.

I am not aware of a soul on this planet that at sometime or another has not wished that they could find a good doctor or naturopath to help them with an ailment or pain.  Many of us have seen the videos or experienced in person “healers” such as John of God or others, and I aware it is easy to walk away with a skeptical perspective.

I was introduced to Master Sha by Bill Gladstone, his book agent here in Southern California.  Don’t get me wrong I have not met Master Sha, but had the opportunity to speak with Bill Gladstone about his personal experience with Master Sha. As you will hear in my interview with Master Sha he is for real.  Everyone that I have spoken with that has encountered  Master Sha or attended one of his healing events is just in awe of his healing powers.

In my interview with Master Sha we have the opportunity to speak about his personal history, and the blending of ancient Chinese practices of Qi Gong, Tai Chi, acupuncture into something he refers to at “energy medicine”.  We also discuss “karma cleansing” which is something that Master Sha refers to and is associated with disease or ailments that we bring in from past lives.  Master Sha has helps his clients remove these energy blockages and become free from the pain and disease, that may have emanated from past lives.

I encourage my listeners to visit Master Sha’s website and watch some of the videos, then you can judge for yourself.

There is also a workshop coming up at the Agape International Spiritual Center on December 13th.  Just click on this link to learn more about the day long event.  Enjoy my interview with Master Sha, and I hope you will be able to attend this healing event.

 

I think that many American’s ask the question on a regular basis, especially with our congress “Where are the leaders”?  Yes, leadership is a skill and talent that is learned, and just because you have a law degree or any other degree in higher education doesn’t qualify you to be a skilled leader.  I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Eric Kaufmann the author of a new book entitled ” Leadership As A Hero’s Journey“.

In our interview together we discussed how “Joseph Campbell’s” famous “Hero’s Journey” is an important element of all brave and committed leaders. Eric states that leadership as a Hero’s Journey unfolds on three levels 1) results 2) wisdom and 3) spirituality.  He also states that there are four virtues associated with leadership and they are 1) Focus: What am I creating? Focus sets direction and clarity for the journey. 2) Courage: What am I avoiding? Courage enables full engagement that is otherwise blocked by anxiety and fear.  3) Grit: What am I sustaining?  Grit drives action forward in the face of fatigue and disheartenment.

I know you are going to enjoy this wonderful interview with author and consultant Eric Kaufmann about his new book.  If you want to learn more about Eric please click here to be directed to his website.    

It is my honor and a pleasure to have interviewed my meditation teachers Joel and Michelle Levey.  The have re-released their book “Living in Balance” which has been thoroughly updated and revised.  In our interview together we discuss the “tight rope” that we all walk on attempting to maintain a life of balance and harmony.  In our hectic world many reading this post can relate to the challenges of finding that mid-point where we establish a life filled with happiness, joy and bliss while still engaging in the world.

Joel and I discuss the concept of flow, how to reach it and maintain this optimal state of performance.  We have all been there, but it seems to be something that is fleading and difficult to reach and maintain.  Joel provide some simple techniques and practices that will assist the listener in staying in the flow.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with my personal meditation teachers Joel and Michelle Levey.  You can learn more about them by clicking here to be directed to their website, or click here to be directed to their Facebook page.

I recently interviewed author and Zen Buddhist priest Karen Maezen Miller about her new book entitled “Paradise in Plain Sight“.

Karen and her husband purchased a home in the suburbs of Los Angeles called Sierra Madre, where an existing zen garden  had been planted for many years, but was in desperate need of nurturing and care.  Her book takes the reader on a journey of finding paradise right in your backyard a lesson that can’t be repeated enough.   The best lessons are that paradise is always right under our noses, and we don’t need to keep seeking, changing or wanting more.  This book isn’t really about Zen, and it is isn’t really about gardening writes Karen it is about the paradise we are all standing in right now.

I throughly enjoyed my interview with Karen, and I know that you will love our podcast together.

Heather ReedEveryone today is focused on wellness, and it is a topic that deserves a lot of focus and attention.  I had the pleasure of interviewing both Dr. Matt Mumber and Heather Reed about their new book entitled “Sustainable Wellness-An Integrative Approach to Transform Your Mind, Body and Spirit.”.   I must state that Matt and Heathers approaching to achieving sustainable wellness uses an integrative medicine approach which if followed properly will certainly help one achieve sustainable wellness with lasting results.

I found their  analogy of using the three legged stool a great way to explain how they both approach the topic of wellness.  If you can imagine a three legged stool with the seat being spirituality , and the three legs physical activity, nutrition, and stress management all feeding into our spirituality.   The stool rests on awareness, which is the foundation of where all wellness begins.   This provides a great visual of the integrative approach that both Matt and Heather take when working with their clients to achieve truly lasting wellness.

Achieving sustainable wellness begins with reflection and exploration.  In the book you will find many opportunities where  Matt and Heather  provide the reader with questions for reflection and thought.  They have also have created and an eight (8) steps process to follow in exploring your personal wellness RX.  Those steps include mindfulness, know thyself, life review and planning, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, spirituality, bringing it all together.  If you follow these steps and practice the wisdom that the authors have outlined in “Sustainable Wellness” you will most likely  achieve a new level of health and vitality for yourself.
