In the first episode of 2020, I had the pleasure to interview my friend and productivity guru, David Allen, at his home in Amsterdam. David is one of the premier authorities in the field, and his book, Getting Things Done, is an international bestseller and has been translated into 28 languages. I delve into the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of David’s method, which is used by some of the most successful individuals and businesses in the world.
In this episode, I share the resources and techniques I’ve been using to create my own Spiritual Intensive program that has been helping me get through some challenging times. At the end of the episode I do a blessing of light for Christmas and the Holidays.

In this brief episode, I keep with the recent theme of discussing “the basics” to spiritual awakening and progression. I talk about the basic quality of acceptance, known as the first law of Spirit. I include a quote from one of my favorite Walt Whitman poems, “To Him That Was Crucified”, and also a quote from John-Roger’s book “The Tao of Spirit”
Transcript of Podcast-
Nat: Hi and welcome to transcend with nat. This is Nat. I’m your host. And keeping in line with the last episode where we got back to basics. I’m going to talk today, it will probably be a short episode, but I just want to discuss one of the primary spiritual laws, which is acceptance. J-R John-Roger, my teacher called it the first law of Spirit. And it is one of the primary aspects if you’re working on awakening yourself, that you will be needing to move more into, in your life, in your awareness and your consciousness. And in acceptance. We’re not talking about belief, we’re just talking about accepting, acknowledging, Continue reading “Episode 42: Acceptance”
In this episode, I discuss a higher look at Manifestation and also share an excerpt from John-Roger that was an inspiration for me in designing a short workshop type presentation I’ll be doing this weekend (from J-R’s seminar Cutting Materialistic Attachments & Opening Your Spirit available at MSIA.org). At the end, I share another excerpt from the same seminar on caring for loved ones and friends at the end of their lives.
I am excited to have been invited do a presentation/guided meditation at a Deep Healing Retreat this weekend! I’m going to be doing my part Saturday afternoon 5/25 in Topanga. You can sign up here or contact me if you need more info.
I’m super excited to have back on the show an inspirational and vastly knowledgeable health expert, Sat Hari, speaking on a variety of topics ranging from genetics to the effects of negative thinking on health. We start out discussing an excerpt I played from John-Roger’s seminar “Adapting Towards Health or Adopting Disease” (avail. at msia.org). She tells a story of her recent Tony Robbins workshop experience of walking on hot coals, and also gives some suggestions of recommended tests and a machine she finds useful, as well as other techniques. As promised, you can get links to all the resources we mentioned on the show below.

Testing for MTHFR and Genetic Testing for your body’s response to medications, which Sat Hari wanted to make sure I corrected what she said that it is blood and saliva testing. I will get back with more info on her recommended testing labs, but if you have used a service like 23andMe or other mainstream DNA testing, you can download your raw DNA data and run reports through different sites to get info on your MTHFR and other info (be sure to read their privacy policies before giving them access to this sensitive data…if you choose to at all). A quick google search about ways to analyze your raw data gives a myriad of resources. Please know that much is still being learned and much is not understood in this field, so what is true today may be different tomorrow. So use your brains! I have to tell you to do all this under the guidance and supervision of a doctor. Most doctors aren’t educated in genetics or the effects they can have on medication, so I would recommend finding one who is if you are interested in pursuing this.

In this episode, I use excerpts from John-Roger’s seminar Accomplishment vs Success (available at msia.org). I talk about the excerpts and my own stories with John-Roger. Like how the seminar titles were chosen, and also how J-R personally taught me to overcome negative emotions such as depression by using one of the tools from the seminar.
In this episode, I start the new year by discussing the questions I asks myself to gain a greater perspective in my life and business.
Per a request, I also look at the effects on the consciousness of using substances popular today among many spiritual seekers and groups such as the “plant based medicine” ayahuasca, microdosing LSD, and marijuana.
In this episode, recorded on the road in an area recently hit by a Hurricane, I discuss house clearing as well as what you can do when in an area hit by a natural disaster. I also discusses a story of light work during the early days with John-Roger, in an area that had to be cleared from the effects of wars that had been fought there over time.
In the first of these two episodes, released simultaneously, Nat discusses the things he does when he is feeling out of balance inside of himself. How he views these types of karmic situations and the tools he uses to get above the karma, and get clear inside.
One of those tools is doing the guided mediation by John-Roger (in Episode 29), the Luxor Meditation for Peace & Harmony. This meditation was recorded in the outdoor courtyard at ancient Luxor Temple in Egypt. It is designed to awaken and expand your awareness of the spiritual dimensions inside you. Join John-Roger and 150 peace pilgrims as they chant the Hu tone. Allow the sacred vibrations to resonate, creating balance, healing, and peace. The meditation is available for purchase at msia.org
This episode is for those of you who are dealing with the loss of a loved one (or those of you who are helping someone who is grieving).
I share some of my experiences with grieving and what helped me. I then go through and discuss the 15 “lamps on the path” from the booklet Healing Grief by Amy Hillyard Jensen.
After recording this, a seminar popped up in my J-R playlist (coincidentally? I think not) where he was talking about grieving his mother. It is from the seminar Prosperity – How Big Are You Thinking? by John-Roger, available at msia.org
I’m posting the clip below…so here’s J-R on Grief
