  • Caroline Myss on Intimate Conversations with the Divine

    11/11/2020 Duración: 54min

    Caroline Myss returns to the Authentic Living show today to talk to us about her latest book, “Intimate Conversations with the Divine: Prayer, Guidance and Grace.” The book allows us to peer into our own psyches and see both our struggles and the grace we find through prayer. Caroline has taken the risk here to allow us to see her own soul and to show us her own struggles as her prayers are flashes of her own intimacy with the Divine. Today we will discuss the depth and power of intimacy with the Divine. You don’t want to miss this one.

  • The Oneness in Our Division

    21/10/2020 Duración: 56min

    We hear it every day now on the news, see it in our social media sites, it’s literally everywhere: we are a divided nation. So divided are we that we have two different realities, or so it seems. One media gives us one form of reality and all the other medias give us an entirely different form of reality. This has made it possible for the people on both sides of the divide to call the other side liars—and absolutely believe that they are telling the truth. There is hate on either side of this divide. So, how will we ever get beyond it. Well, first we absolutely need leadership that does not promote the divide, but encourages our Oneness. Hopefully, we will get that leadership in a few weeks. But beyond that there is much to see in the Oneness that is a critical and deeply spiritual element of even our very division. We are going to locate and elucidate that Oneness during this show. Don’t miss it.

  • Do we really want to return to "normal"?

    14/10/2020 Duración: 56min

    Everyone is saying it these days, “When are we going to get back to normal?” We are suffering several different crises all at once, the pandemic, the economic crisis, the crisis related to the freshly seen revelations of abuse to persons of color and black people, the political crisis and the climate crisis. And all we can think about is going back to the way it used to be. But the way it used to be is what got us here. We got ourselves here through our denial and our bias and our irresponsibility for our government. And if we go back to the way it was, we will just end up here again. No. This is a time that calls for transformation, mental, emotional, and soulful transformation so that we are forever changed by these multiple crises. This show is all about how we can make these transformations to create a new and much more spiritually accurate ordinariness. Don’t miss it.

  • Integrating the Collective Shadow of America

    07/10/2020 Duración: 56min

    The shadow of the American culture is exposed. We are reminded now that while we said we were a nation that supported every person’s equal right to the pursuit of happiness, rather, we were founded upon the death of over 50 million indigenous people and we built our nation on the backs of slaves. We’ve been a two-faced nation from the onset. And now we are beginning to see what we've only suspected before in all the darkness, the lies, the bribery, and the danger hidden beneath the veil of some smiling political faces. The racial unrest, the political unrest, the economy and the physical health of a nation are dependent on us to become aware, to wake up to our own collective shadow and to integrate it in a way that makes us into the nation we said we were when we started this noble experiment. This is a spiritual quest (not a religious quest) and it will require that we handle it from a spiritual perspective. Tune in to learn how we might do this spiritual work.

  • The True Nature of Good and Evil

    23/09/2020 Duración: 56min

    There is much that is going on right now in the United States, which is impacting the entire globe, and which would make us believe that evil has surely won—that the end of goodness and hope for goodness has come. Our President is lying to us. The Majority Leader of the Senate is lying to us and betraying his own precedent. The Attorney General has changed his entire job description in order to defend the President against charges of sexual assault. The fact that so many continue to defend the President despite his betrayals and lies. Those things are facts. But do these facts represent evil? Indeed, are goodness and evil really real? Or, are these just concepts we made up to in order to find some safe mental construct to deal with behaviors we didn’t understand? Is it time we begin the process of putting away the good/evil paradigm in favor of a truer, more realistic paradigm? Tune in to find out.

  • Uncertainty, Faith and Hope

    16/09/2020 Duración: 56min

    We are living in very uncertain times. It is very difficult in these circumstances for we cannot seem to establish a routine that can be assumed to be “normal.” Everyone is talking about what it would be like to “return to normal.” And yet we continue to face uncertainty. But is it possible that uncertainty is one of spirituality’s best tools to facilitate our growth? Is it possible that living in uncertainty forces us to have to turn to something else on which to rely? What is that something else? Where will we find it? And what exactly will it give us? We’re going to answer those questions during today’s show. Don’t miss it.

  • Awakening from the Darkness

    02/09/2020 Duración: 55min

    The collective that is the United States of America is currently experiencing a dark night of the soul—a night so dark that we fear we will never awaken from this nightmare. But like every dark night of the soul, this one has an end, which is a beginning. A beginning of a whole new version of that same collective. The dark night of the soul is meant to root out shadow material, expose it and deal with it appropriately so that we can awaken to a new reality. But we are just now in the darkest part of that dark night—where we can see with our own eyes the deepest, most vile aspects of the collective we have previously believed to be functioning well. Before this dark night we thought we lived in the light—but all the while the shadow was corrupt at its base. But exposing that shadow will bring us to the solid object that is blocking the light. Today we will peer into the darkness to find that block and the light within us. Don’t miss it.

  • The Gift in the Darkness

    26/08/2020 Duración: 57min

    The pain, the fear, the horror, the loss. In all of these things we experience the devastating reality of the darkness. These things cannot be minimized. They are real and have a real impact on our lives. But is it possible that by experiencing these devastations, we are being driven to the light within us? Is it possible that the intention of the darkness is to drive us to the light within us? That doesn’t mean, as many think, that God or the gods have planned your loss, your pain, your fear, your horror or that it is somehow God’s will. But isn’t it also possible that, regardless of the cause of the suffering, that the suffering can be used to open us to the light within us? And if that is true, what is that light? Indeed, IS there a light within us? During today’s show we are going to discover that light, and discuss how we might guide ourselves through the darkness to that light. Don’t miss it.

  • Walking Through the Darkness

    12/08/2020 Duración: 55min

    The darkness has come. Not, of course, for the first time, nor will it be the last, but the question is: What do we do with this darkness? And the only true answer is that we must learn how to walk through darknesses of all kind without losing our faith. That means we must learn how to not only walk through but receive the many gifts that the darkness will ultimately give us. We are in the midst of a pandemic, an economic crisis, a crisis regarding racial discrimination and abuse, a political crisis, a crisis of faith and a climate crisis. Any one of which would be distressing and disturbing, but all of which are happening at the same time. How do we as a collective perceive this? How do we get through it? How do we as individuals perceive this? And how does each individual get through it? Tune in to this show to learn how to walk through the darkness.

  • Mistaken Christianity - Part IV

    16/10/2019 Duración: 56min

    During the past two live episodes, we began to look into the specific root language in the earliest parts of the sacred text Christians know as the Bible. What we have learned is that some of the most basic concepts utilized by the leaders of what I am calling the Mistaken Christianity—the literalistic teachings of fundamentalism—are based in mistranslations of that text and turn out, therefore, to be false. Today we will continue and finalize that discussion moving into what has come to be known as the New Testament to look at the root language of some of the most basic concepts of modern-day Christianity. The root language turns out to be very different from what these teachers are teaching. Don’t miss it.

  • Mistaken Christianity--Part III

    02/10/2019 Duración: 57min

    Last week we began to look into the specific root language in the ancient book we know of today as the book of Genesis. What we learned was that some of the most basic concepts in the Mistaken Christianity—the literalistic teachings of fundamentalism—are based in mistranslations of that text. Today we will continue that discussion adding more to our understanding of what we are actually being told in the sacred text of the Christian Bible about being spiritual beings having a human experience. Don’t miss it.

  • A Mistaken Christianity--Part II

    25/09/2019 Duración: 57min

    On another show in the past we discussed an overall summary of some of the mistakes made even by well-intended Christians because of the mistranslations passed down to us. Today we are going to begin a process of getting more specific about some of these mistranslations. What has happened is that fundamentalism—or what many today are calling Evangelical Christianity—is based in these mistakes in translation. If we are going to consider sacred text as a viable source of wisdom and guidance, we need to be careful about how we are translating it. Be here for this—you are not going to want to miss it.

  • Awakenings

    18/09/2019 Duración: 57min

    Many of us live our entire lives in a stupor. We are far removed from our bodies, and even further removed from our own souls. What would it be like to come to know yourself as a soul right here on planet earth? Why is it that we think that we can only come to know our own souls after we die? Even those of us who are working to get rid of ego are often doing all of that work without a true connection to soul. Your soul is your own deepest essence and while we tend to think we can come to know others intimately, we often do not know our own souls. During this show we will discuss the various forms of awakening that allow us to come to know ourselves as soul. Don’t miss it.

  • Healing the Wounds of Childhood

    11/09/2019 Duración: 56min

    Today we are talking to Dr. Don St. John, author of the book “Healing the Wounds of Childhood,” as this is one of the most important of all of the subjects we could discuss. Very often it is these wounds that keep us trapped, even as we are striving to get past them in some kind of way. How do we grow into our full potential while these wounds remain yet unhealed? How do we increase our ability to receive and absorb love, enjoy more life-giving love connections, deal more effectively with stress and improve our resilience and health all while expanding our sense of who we are? These questions and more will be answered during today’s show. Don’t miss it.

  • FEAR!

    12/06/2019 Duración: 57min

    How safe are you really in a world full of chaos? What is safety and how do we get to feel safe--particularly in these times when there is so much upheaval and hate in the world? It seems there is so much to fear and there is so much anxiety right now individually and collectively. How do we manage to feel safe? And is feeling safe the opposite of fear? Today we are going to talk about fear and safety and come to some perhaps surprising conclusions. Don't miss it.

  • Letting Go

    05/06/2019 Duración: 56min

    Just let it go! Don't we hear that all the time? But the problem is that we just can't seem to do that. We can let it go. IT has hold of us. IT controls us, for we think that we have to control IT. Letting go then, turns out to be one of the hardest things we ever do. Surrender sounds like waving a white flag and letting the IT take over. Won't it all just fall apart, our plans, our dreams, our relationships--won't they all just fall apart if we don't stay in control? But all the wise masters tell us that letting go is the key to life, the key to peace, the key to all wisdom, all love. How can we find our true power by letting go of all power? How can we let it go? This show is going to explore the letting go process as an evolutionary stage of existence. Be here NOW.

  • Learning to Receive Love

    29/05/2019 Duración: 57min

    We have always heard a lot about how we ought to love everyone, how we should love others, and lately even how we should love ourselves. But we don't hear so much about learning how to receive love, and most of us have not been taught how to do this. We've not been taught to accept loving gestures with humility. We've not been taught how to relish in the love that is constantly ours coming from the divine. We've not been taught how to receive the love that comes to us from spouses, partners and even our children. And learning to receive love is one of the basic ingredients of happiness. And happiness is one of the basic ingredients of wellness and wholeness. Tune in today to learn how to receive love.

  • Spiritual Abuse, What It is and How to Heal From It

    15/05/2019 Duración: 56min

    The terms spiritual abuse have, thus far, only been used to describe how Christian leaders abuse church members. But spiritual abuse runs far deeper and wider than can be described by any one religion. Spiritual abuse is abuse of the human spirit. While it's true that your spirit--your soul--can't really be damaged, it's also true that you can be split off from any conscious awareness of your spirit--and that's what spiritual abuse does. It is possible to live a life complete bereft of any conscious awareness of one's own spirit. That's what spiritual abuse can do. It can happen in any religion, in the spiritual but not religious population, in New Age followers, in New Thought followers, in the Human Potential Movement, and in our homes, in our schools and in our workplaces. Anywhere there is spirit there can be abuse of that spirit. But it can also be healed. Let's talk about it--it's time.

  • The Power of Peace

    24/04/2019 Duración: 57min

    When we think of empowerment, we don't generally think first of peace, but rather of things like confidence, self-assurance, assertiveness and other like traits. We think of the ability to confront others, to draw appropriate boundaries, to address and meet our own needs. And all of those things do bring empowerment, but at the base of all of these things is a sense of authentic inner peace that allows us the grace to perform with confidence, self-assurance and assertiveness. In other words the source of true empowerment is peace. So, how do we go about finding peace and how do we access it regularly enough to authenticate our empowerment? That's what we'll be talking about today on Authentic Living. Don't miss it.

  • Safe to Love Again?

    10/04/2019 Duración: 54min

    Have you loved and lost? Have you been heart broken, devastated by the personal loss of a relationship due to divorce or a breakup? If you have, you have probably asked the question, “when is it safe to love again?” Well, today, we are talking to Dr. Gary Salyer, author of “Safe to Love Again: How to Release the Pain of Past Relationships and Create the Love You Deserve.” The book was written for both singles and for couples who have lost the passion. It offers a pathway to rewiring the brain to allow for a safe, secure, long-lasting love to be yours. Is your love style Secure, Avoidant or Anxious? These styles were manifested through “permissions” or “rights” that our infant selves did or did not acquire in the first year of life, based on what we internalized and perceived from the actions of our parents, says Salyer. Come learn about your style and how you can rewire your brain to allow a safe, secure and long-lasting love.
