  • 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.

  • Darkness and Light

    27/03/2019 Duración: 57min

    There's just so much out there about living in the light, living into worthiness, living into goodness, that we dismiss the value of the shadows, the darkness. We think that darkness implies evil. But we miss all the beautiful silence, the amazing mystery of darkness. And we miss the beautiful gifts that are given to us when we walk through the darkness in our lives. Somehow we've come to believe that we should live lives completely divest of darkness--that doing so makes us good people, even proves our worth. So when the darkness comes--as it will--we tend to think we must have done something wrong, and then we add shame to the problem. But like the light, the darkness equally has gifts to give us. Let us, then, explore the gifts of the darkness--bring them into the light. You don't want to miss this one.

  • The Wild, Wild Wisdom of Life

    20/03/2019 Duración: 59min

    How do we even begin to trust a life in which there is so much worldwide suffering? People say, “Trust the process,” but what does that mean, and how do we trust it? We’ve all entered this wild, wild ride of life filled with all manner of amazing blessings and difficult challenges. Why are we here? What is the point? Given the suffering of the world, some would say that no one should ever leave home. Yet we do, we not only leave our homes but we risk falling in love, we get into committed relationships and we have children. We work jobs toward certain goals we may or may not attain. We challenge life, in fact, as much as life challenges us. How do we do that? What is it in us that is willing to take all those risks? Whatever it is, it is a powerful force and allows us to receive the wisdom, the wild, wild wisdom of life. Today, we are going to get in touch with that wild wisdom, increasing everyone’s vibrational energy. Don’t miss it.

  • Forgiveness

    13/03/2019 Duración: 58min

    Forgiveness turns out to be just another f-word—for it is fraught with so much misinformation, and laden with such heaviness! But forgiveness is not what we’ve thought it is. It is not something we can “should” ourselves into. It is not a duty. It is not taking someone back. It is not absolution. It is not tolerating the intolerable and accepting the unacceptable. It is not pity. It is not trying to discover why they did it. It is not a decision to be a good person by forgiving. It is not a decision at all. It is not earned and it is not the magic that makes bad feelings go away. Finally, it is not closure. What it is is far bigger, for more profound and far better than any of the things we have called forgiveness. Today we are going to learn what forgiveness is and what it isn’t. Don’t miss this important episode.

  • Spiritual Bypassing

    06/03/2019 Duración: 57min

    There are so many ways, dictated by so many others, to be a spiritual person. Many, for example, believe that they should never allow themselves to have a so-called negative thought, or a negative feeling. They believe that doing so not only makes them less spiritual, but it means that they might attract so-called negative events into their lives. But what if there's no such thing as a negative thought or feeling, and no such thing as a negative event? Others believe that repressing fear in the name of love is a spiritual thing to do, and it makes them into a spiritual being. But what if being spiritual means simply being. What if our definitions of spirituality are skewed along the lines of man-made images that have to do with how it looks to others? Many of us are spiritually bypassing and calling it spirituality. This term, coined by Robert Masters, is our subject today. Don't miss it. Be here now.

  • Toward Inner and Outer Peace

    27/02/2019 Duración: 55min

    Peace. We all long for peace, both inner peace and outer peace. But we cannot seem to find it internally because the external world seems to be in such chaos. So, as long as that's true, how will we ever find peace? Well, today, Karen Noe is here to give us 33 Profound Truths for Inner and Outer Peace. This interview will be based on her latest book We Consciousness: 33 Profound Truths for Inner and Outer Peace. Karen is an internationally renowned psychic medium with a two year client waiting list. So, we have much to learn from her as she offers her truths today--don't miss this opportunity to learn more about how to find and live in peace.

  • Ain't Necessarily So

    19/12/2018 Duración: 55min

    What we have heard and we’ve read in the Bible, well it ain’t necessarily so. So goes the old Porgy and Bess song. Perhaps they did not read Thomas Moore’s version, Gospel The Book of John, in which regardless of religion or atheism one discovers a deeper more meaningful spirituality hidden in the root meanings of the words used. Unfortunately, much of the work of John and others has been turned into moralistic dogma. But what we find in the root language is a more celebrative, deeply mystical and loving message. In Moore’s book we discover a different Jesus than the one described for us by earlier translations. This new rendition of Jesus is Dionysian in his urging us toward a full and meaningful celebration of living. He tells us that we are to remember who we are, and he guides us to that knowledge with his actions and words. Come learn of this new Jesus. See if you like him now.

  • From chaos to Oneness?

    28/11/2018 Duración: 57min

    What do we mean when we speak of Oneness? What is duality? What is it like to live in Oneness? Is it possible that we are actually in a unique period of spiritual transformation that, through divisiveness leads us to unity, even to Oneness? These are some of the questions we will answer today as we speak to Robert Atkinson, PhD, and author of the book, The Story of Our Time: From Duality to Interconnectedness to Oneness. We speak of being One with all, as if we truly understand for whom the bell tolls, but do we understand the depth and gravity of living as One with all, including the divine? Don’t miss this very important message.

  • Is Guilt Running Your Life?

    10/10/2018 Duración: 58min

    Most of us have been taught that guilt is a good thing. A guilty conscience keeps us in line—according to that teaching. Guilt drives us to “do the right thing,” or so we’ve been taught. But what if the human heart has enough passion and compassion to motivate correct action without the use of guilt? What if guilt has been put in place because we don’t trust the authentic Self to direct us? What if guilt is the lie, and the heart of the authentic Self is the truth? What if we’ve been so busy being “good” that we haven’t put any energy into being real? If those things were true, wouldn’t we need to rethink our responses to guilt? For too many guilt the primary decision maker, so that it ultimately runs their lives. If you are one of those, or if guilt has a strong hold on you—this show is for you. Don’t miss it.

  • Surrender to Oneness

    19/09/2018 Duración: 56min

    As we study the sacred texts of the world, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads, the Vedas, the Bible—particularly in its root language—what we discover is that duality is nonduality. There simply is no such thing as separation. Yet we continue to live our lives as if we were separate from the divine, and separate from each other, and the natural world. It is very difficult for us to imagine Oneness. It is very difficult for us to suspend our polarized notions of good and evil. But the surrender to Oneness is simply a surrender to the truth of who and what we are. This is not something we can do with the intellect. That’s why it seems so difficult to us. But it is something we can do. Tune in today to learn about surrendering to Oneness.

  • Divine Feminine?

    12/09/2018 Duración: 53min

    For some in the Western world considering the divine as feminine not only seems impossible, so engrained have we become with the masculine archetypal God, but for some is thought to be blasphemy. But in the history of sacred wisdom the divine is often found in the feminine archetype. Our guest today, Meghan Don, is the author of The New Divine Feminine, in which she describes several methods, several stories, and many meditations for accessing the divine feminine. Why would we need to do that? One answer is that wisdom itself, found in the sacred texts as Sophia, is feminine in nature. Another is that the feminine archetype leads us inward to find our deepest authentic selves. If you are seeking a deeper union with the divine, this show is for you.

  • What to do with Conflicted Feelings

    22/08/2018 Duración: 56min

    It is hard enough to have one overwhelming emotion take over our thoughts and behaviors. But it is even more difficult for most of us to have two or three very opposite emotions. Our thoughts tell us that we should argue for these positions so that one of the emotions “wins.” But is that really what is the most effective plan? Is it possible that conflicted emotions can help us to heal, even help us to plan our lives in some way? Well, today we are going to be talking to Relationship Strategist and Emotional Fitness coach Jennifer Williams to answer some of these questions. If you have ever experience conflicted feelings, this show is for you. Don’t miss it.

  • Boundaries

    11/07/2018 Duración: 56min

    Joan Borysenko comes back to the Authentic Living Show to discuss one of the most important features of mental health: the appropriate use of boundaries. We are only recently coming to understand the necessity of appropriate psychological, spiritual and relational boundaries. On this show we are going to really get into this discussion--for the use of boundaries could make all the difference in our ability to live happy, fulfilling lives. Don't miss it.

  • The Feminine Archetype and Spirituality

    13/06/2018 Duración: 57min

    We tend to think of the feminine in terms of what we understand of gender. But the truth is that gender is one thing, gender identity is another, and femininity is totally another. The feminine is a psychic structure, a way of viewing self, life and other. The feminine is a way of living that has nothing whatsoever to do with gender or gender identity. It also turns out that this feminine way of viewing and living has everything to do with spirituality—which runs well beyond the limits and constraints of religion. Be here for this show. You’ll be glad you were.

  • The Flow and Divine Self

    06/06/2018 Duración: 54min

    From a purely spiritual perspective this show will discuss the meaning of those all too commonly used words “The Flow.” What is the flow? How does it work? And how does one get into the flow? Is there something we should be doing to make sure we are always in the flow? And what has being in the flow to do with being present in the divine Self? Putting the word “divine” next to the word “Self” does tend to cause some consternation in the Western world of religion. There is a tendency to think that the divine cannot be associated with the self, unless the self is cleaned up, purified, forgiven, and even then the self is still not considered to be divine. But in the root language of the Bible and in other world religions we find that the Self is divine, we’ve just forgotten. And it has everything to do with being in the flow. Tune in to this important discussion. You’ll be glad you did.

We’ll be talking about her latest book, “Messages from the Divine: Wisdom for the Seeker’s Soul,” her 11th book. So, if you want to know how to get to your own wisdom, how to hear directly from the divine, don’t miss this show.

  • Spiritual Guidance vs. Spiritual Abuse

    09/05/2018 Duración: 57min

    What is the difference between spiritual guidance and spiritual abuse? Certainly, most of us would deny that when we offer spiritual guidance we might also be spiritually abusing. But it is most important that we understand the distinction if we are to serve others in any spiritual capacity. Typically, we think of abuse only in terms of its physical, emotional or sexual forms. But what is beginning, over time and experience, to be exposed is a kind of abuse of the spirit, that creates a great divide between the soul of a person and his or her identity. This show is going to clearly differentiate spiritual guidance from spiritual abuse. If you are in any kind of spiritual leadership capacity, this show is for you.

  • Spirituality in a Crazy World

    02/05/2018 Duración: 57min

    How does one manage to maintain one’s spirituality, when the world seems to have turned upside down? In a world where what was previously “right” seems wrong and what was “wrong” now seems right, how does one maintain a sense of balance? How do we sort out the distinctions? What do we believe? What is real and what is “fake news?” How does one maintain authenticity when faced with toxicity? Today’s show is going to offer some methods you can use to find your center even when the world has gone crazy. Don’t miss it.

  • Inhabiting Heaven NOW

    04/04/2018 Duración: 56min

    There are many stories out there from those who have experienced a near-death experience, who tell us that life goes on after death as peace and joy. Many mediums who also inform us that life goes on after death as peace and joy. Some who even inform us that we can have, in the here and now, some of that same peace and joy. But is it possible to inhabit heaven even as we live here on planet earth? If so, what would that look and feel like? We live in a dual mindset, an either/or, good/evil, peace/war mindset. But is that really the truth of our life here on earth? Tune in today. Maybe YOU can learn to inhabit heaven NOW.
