Episode 23: Identity Politics

In this episode I deal with the hot button topic of identity politics (uh-oh), addressing it from a spiritual viewpoint. I use my stories with my teacher, John-Roger, to illustrate this higher perspective. I also address one of our listener’s question about cooperation.  Here’s the link to John-Roger’s book I read from, called Timeless Wisdoms

 

Episode 21: Discouraged to Courage

If you are dealing with discouragement, this episode is for you.
I will show you how I work to get over discouragement. I base the process on John-Roger’s 10 Factors of Discouragement from the seminar Discovering Courage in Discouragement . I combine J-R’s factors, my questions and the technique of the inner council I shared in Episode 19.

Below is the reference for the two factors, and the questions, that I talk about in the episode.

If you have any questions or areas you would like me to look at in an episode please let me know….you can reach me via my contact page.

Factor of Discouragement #1

WHAT ARE WE LIVING FOR? WHAT IS THE POINT?
  • The point is to grow (spiritually, mentally, financially etc)
  • We grow by being of service to others
  • Solution to Courage: Service
Questions:
  1. How can I be more of service in my life?
  2. What can I do in my life to help someone else (this could be helping the needy or doing something for a friend or family)?
  3. What’s the next step I can take to do that?
  4. Do it

Factor of Discouragement #6

CRITICISM
  • “I can’t seem to do anything right”
  • “No matter what I do, I can’t please you”
  • Underneath criticism is a knowing inside of us of perfection, and we want others to be perfect (and ourselves!)
  • Solution to Courage: Look for the lesson in the criticism, using the criticism to your advantage
Questions:
  1. What is the criticism (from others or myself) that has until now caused me to go into feelings of discouragement?
  2. Is there any truth behind the criticism?
  3. If I could use that information to my advantage, what would that look like?
  4. What is a positive step I can take in that direction right now?

Episode 11: Sat Hari’s Story & Health Advice

Sat Hari & Nat exploring Petra, Jordan

In this episode I am super excited to have interviewed Sat Hari about her most unique life story. From the experience of growing up close to spiritual teacher Yogi Bhajan, being a Sikh in American elementary school, to going to a boarding school in the foothills of the Himalayas with no heat, living with Giardia for years in India, scrounging for change for food after returning to the USA, to touring the world with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and advising the most famous and wealthiest people in the world about health. She shares about a cancer treatment being done in Switzerland as well as items you can get on Amazon*. Nat talks about courage and integrity before the interview, with an excerpt of John-Roger from the Merv Griffin Show that you can find here https://vimeo.com/59267001 .

Bedtime Forgiveness Process

Forgiveness is a powerful and profound process. My teacher, John-Roger, called it the key to the kingdom. What often gets in the way of my living the life I want, living more fully, living a life of greater loving, is my hurts and judgements. In the process of opening my heart, forgiveness has been and continues to be one of the key practices to letting go and healing my hurts and disturbances.
Recently, I have added into my nightly bedtime routine a forgiveness process. I have done this in years past, and once again find that I am in need of this process to complete my day.
It’s very simple, and I’ll break down the steps below. It is important to realize that we are forgiving ourselves for our judgements (those areas we have the hurt, the pain, the negative energy or negative ‘charge’). This is an inner process and one that is chiefly concerned with letting go of the negativity you are holding onto inside of you.
Here is a great excerpt from J-R’s book Forgiveness: The Key To The Kingdom, which is a great description of the process of forgiveness:
“Open your heart to Spirit and to all the hurt that you’ve experienced, and just say inside yourself, “I forgive myself for the mismanagements, misjudgments, misinformations, or whatever else has been happening that has made me feel hurtful, resentful, contracted, pulled away. I’m going to keep extending the loving again. And I’m going to keep expanding that, until one day it stays extended all by itself.” At that point, you’re really going to be
happy that you loved through the hurts and the discouragements and the despair and th crises, because you’ll find out that it’s really worth it.”
Here are the steps for my Bedtime Forgiveness Process
  1. Open your heart to Spirit asking only that which is for your highest good take place (sometimes thinking of your pet or child, a beautiful sunset, a spiritual teacher, Jesus, Buddha etc and touching your heart can help you move into that loving, open consciousness)
  2. Start saying forgiveness statements with whatever comes up as disturbances, hurts, incompletions, judgements and misunderstandings of the day (or from any other time). An example of how I do the forgiveness statement is “I forgive myself for judging_________” where you fill in the blank with how you’ve judged yourself, the other person or situation. You may find yourself sigh or take a deep breath as the imbalance releases.
  3. See your loving and the loving of the Spirit going to the person or situation you judged including yourself. If you notice you were holding the disturbance or judgement in a location in your body, you may place your hand there, seeing the loving going into that area where you were holding the disturbance.
  4. Repeat the process until complete
