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
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
How can I be more of service in my life?
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)?
What’s the next step I can take to do that?
Factor of Discouragement #6
“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
What is the criticism (from others or myself) that has until now caused me to go into feelings of discouragement?
Is there any truth behind the criticism?
If I could use that information to my advantage, what would that look like?
What is a positive step I can take in that direction right now?
In this episode I discuss how I learned to clear psychic influences during my time with John-Roger. I talk about his approach and some of the philosophy behind working with it. I start out by sharing some stories about UFOs.
I mention a J-R Moments of Peace in the episode which I have put below for you to watch.
In this episode (recorded in Homer, Alaska), I discuss an experience of heartfelt listening and then I use excerpts from a few John-Roger seminars describing creating a safe place for listening to others. I also talk about doing cold showers in Alaska vs Los Angeles. The seminars “Six Factors to Clear Communication,” “Communication in a Safe Place,” and “What is the Agenda of Listening?” by John-Roger are available at msia.org
In this episode, I talk story about how I started in my current business…jewelry…and my journey to finding enthusiasm in my work. I then share a compilation that I made of excerpts from John-Roger’s seminar Enthusiasm: God’s Energy (avail. at msia.org)
Here’s a few pictures from the event I talk about in the show I said I would post.
In this episode I talk about how I learned Light work from John-Roger especially while traveling, and how I am continuing to do that now. I also explore the spiritual life skill of observation, including excerpts from Observation: The Key To Letting Go by John-Roger (Avail. at msia.org).
Here’s the latest episode. This week it’s just me. I start by talking story about living/working with John-Roger which was sparked by an experience I had recently…a small miracle that happens when in the flow. Then I discuss a couple tools that have been working for me in my relationship (you’ll have to listen to find out more). Last, but definitely not least, I discuss starting to work with your basic self. Enjoy!
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 .
