I recorded this episode shortly after the fires in So Cal. I talk about the fires and what spiritual and practical resources I used, including the MSIA Light List (available at msia.org/prayer-list) and a great emergency preparedness bag by Uncharted Supply Co (available here unchartedsupplyco.com). I also share about the aspect of my work with John-Roger that taught me how to be prepared for adverse events.
In this episode, recorded while driving across Texas, I talk about the business lessons I learned, and continue to learn, from my time working with my spiritual teacher, John-Roger. I talk about my early days working for J-R, and I use an excerpt from John-Roger’s seminar titled Sharings with J-R from Living in Grace Retreat (available at msia.org).
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
In this episode, recorded in Paris France, I discuss the concepts of wealth, success, materiality & spirituality. I use my own experiences from my business, including being in Paris for fashion week, to ground the concepts in real life experiences. I share a personal exchange with John-Roger about wealth, as well as an excerpt from the seminar Depth of Fear or Height of Courage (available at msia.org).
And as promised….here is the Zoolander photo of me and J-R doing our best Blue Steel & Magnum pose in honor of my doing Paris fashion week 🙂
In this episode, I discuss some of the intricacies to do with inner experiences of Spiritual Exercises and Meditation.
I also answers a listener’s question about what John-Roger said about the second coming of the messiah using excerpts from Christ Consciousness: This You Too Shall Do which I will post in video form below.
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?
- Do it
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 give an introduction to an active form of mediation called Spiritual Exercises (SE’s), with an excerpt from John-Roger’s seminar The Kingdom of Heaven is a Vibration (avail. at msia.org) about how to move into the experience of the kingdom of heaven using SE’s. I touch on how sacred texts change their meaning once you have the experience, and conclude with an opportunity to do SE’s with J-R’s Spiritual Exercises: Walking with the Lord audio guide.
Below is the video clip of the J-R excerpt for your enjoyment….
