  • Astrology and Your Authentic Self

    03/12/2008 Duración: 56min

    Demetra George, our guest for today was one of the first Astrologers to publish an astrology book that included the asteroids into the configuration of the natal chart. Demetra always loved the great myths of the Greek gods and goddess, told to her by her Greek grandparents as bedtime stories. As she started using the asteroids in people’s charts, she would tell them the myths of a particular asteroid significant in their charts and hear, “You just told me the story of my life!” Her book, “Asteroid Goddesses” offered a significant change in thinking with regard to astrology, moving the feminine into the forefront of any reading. Her latest book, just out in November, and our topic of discussion today, is “Astrology and the Authentic Self.” If you are even mildly interested in astrology, Demetra George’s work can help you learn to use it as a tool to find your own authenticity.

  • Authentic Gratitude

    26/11/2008 Duración: 55min

    At this time of the year we typically turn our thoughts to the notion of gratitude. And for many of us it is just that: a notion, and not one with which we can easily relate. There just seems so much WRONG with this world, it’s hard to find a way to see the right. And so, we think, why should we be grateful? But if it is really true that all things work towards the truth and light of our own evolution, then gratitude is not only possible, but the only realistic response. Still, forcing it isn’t going to work. Our New Thought authors are telling us that gratitude is essential to abundance. Based on that information, many of us are trying to manipulate the universe to give us its abundance by forcing ourselves to be grateful when really, we aren’t. So, how can we develop an authentic attitude of gratitude? Tune in this week and find out.

  • Living a Soulful Life

    19/11/2008 Duración: 55min

    Regardless of its external realities, the soul is the poignant touchstone of life—i.e., we touch it to know we live. Thomas Moore, our guest for today, is an expert on the soul. With 16 books, five videos, 3 CDs and 7 audio books, including his original bestseller, “Care of the Soul,” and others such as “Dark Night of the Soul,” “The Soul of Sex,” “The Re-Enchantment of Everyday Life,” “Soul Mates” and “The Original Self,” Thomas Moore has enchanted us all. He urges us to consider the depth of existence, to be faithful to our original and unvarnished Selves, to love deeply and with care for the self. He teaches us that life is not meant to be survived, but lived to the nth degree, to the amazement of the soul. And yet, he does not paint us a pretty story of happy-ever-after proportions. Rather he teaches us to find the river of soulful energy flowing beneath every single moment, regardless of that moment’s emotional overtones. Come listen to Thomas and glimpse again your own soul.

  • The Dark Nights of the Soul

    15/10/2008 Duración: 56min

    Often the journey to the Authentic Self is a bit like losing your place. An identity to which you have held for years, even decades is diminishing. You can no longer say you are that old notion of yourself, but you can’t really say who it is that you are now. Worse than that, for some this amounts to a serious depression that may even include suicidal despair. For others it seems that life is meaningless, God cannot be accessed and the everyday experience of life is without hope. What is the purpose of this period in our lives or is there a purpose to it? Well it turns out that, indeed, there is a purpose to it, and not only that, but there is a way through it that brings you to the other side of the desert land a deeply evolved person. Are you experiencing a painful twist in your journey? Tune in and find out how you can make this into a time of enlightenment and, yes, even find joy in the midst of it.

  • Coaching your Authenticity

    24/09/2008 Duración: 55min

  • I AM that I AM

    10/09/2008 Duración: 56min

    Three weeks ago we discussed the psychological components of the masks and costumes we wear that keep us out of touch with the Authentic Self. This week we will discuss the Authentic Self as a spiritual entity with greater power than that of the ego or false self. We attribute a lot of power to the ego, even giving it the supernatural power of “the devil that made me do it.” But the truth is even more impossible than that! The ego is meant to be a negotiator between the external and the internal. What happens too often is that instead, it becomes an identity—or a mask and costume. But, can it really be true that a mask and costume could be more powerful than the Authenticity hidden beneath it? And yet, we give it the reigns, without noticing the number of times we say things like, “I was out of control,” “I just couldn’t help it,” “I had no choice,” and “It just happened.” Listen to this show and learn of the truly profound power that is actually yours every single day.

  • Who is God to You?

    03/09/2008 Duración: 54min

    Mary Bea Sullivan, author of “Dancing Naked Under the Moon,” a personal account of her own spiritual journey, is our guest today. Mary Bea’s compelling journey took her to teachers from diverse traditions to assist her in landing squarely in her own wisdom. Through her own spiritual dark night of the soul, beginning at the death of a dear friend, her quest is one example of how we both demand and resist crises that bring us past the veil and into the inner sanctum of authenticity. The American Institute of Holistic Theology, offering Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral Degrees in Holistic Theology, presents this dialogue, meant to offer a guide to listeners seeking an affirmative approach to the Divine that doesn’t necessarily fit within the construct of any particular dogma or creed. Do we actually get to decide who God is on our own? Actually, if we don’t we never really know God. The only way to have a real relationship with a real God is to be real. Don’t miss this show!

  • Self-healing

    27/08/2008 Duración: 57min

    All healing is self-healing, because we heal from inside out, not from outside in.

He is the author of The Power of Infinite Love and Gratitude: An Evolutionary Journey to Awakening Your Spirit and a contributing author in the best-selling book by Dr. Masaru Emoto, The Healing Power of Water. He has practiced holistic medicine for 14 years and in 1999 opened The Way to Optimal Health medical center in Northbrook, Illinois.

Once these are recognized and released the body returns to its natural state of wholeness. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about self-healing.

  • The Forgotten Self with David Ord

    06/08/2008 Duración: 58min

    David Robert Ord, Editorial Director for Namaste Publishing, was fascinated with Jesus when he was still in elementary school. That fascination took him from his home in England, to New Zealand and finally to the United States where he became a graduate of San Francisco Theological Seminary. For 20 years he taught about Jesus in traditional congregations, but now his book “Your Forgotten Self” breaks with conventional thinking about Jesus. According to Ord, the reason that we find Jesus difficult to understand is because we think of him as different from us. In fact, he sees Jesus as a mirror of the forgotten self that is the true essence in each of us. Andrea’s conversation with David Ord is an open invitation to all listeners to begin to experience the Divine energy that is the Self, to know the Self as Jesus knew himself—as the way, the truth and the life.
