Karen Noe shares vital guidance from Dr. Wayne Dyer

Karen Noé is an internationally renowned psychic medium for the past two decades with a two-year client waiting list.  She was a deep admirer of Dr. Wayne W Dyer, a man whose teachings truly transformed her life. She followed his wisdom to ask, “How May I Serve?” so that she could be a force for peace and love in the world.

A little about Karen’s story:   Just one month after Dr. Dyer’s passing, Karen flew to Orlando FL to speak at Hay House’s I CAN DO IT! Conference.   She flew in a day early to attend a tribute to Dr. Dyer along with members of his family. As she walked back to her hotel, Karen spoke inwardly to Dr. Dyer and asked him to give her a sign if he could hear her. She then asked how she could serve him. 

The answers came in minutes…not just a direct response telling her she was already serving, but also a visual sign that highlighted the letters W…E . Delighted with this contact, she thought initially that the W…E stood for WaynE. But she was soon to discover it meant WE.

 Dr. Dyer had opened the way for her to become a powerful conduit to deliver WE CONSCIOUSNESS: 33 Profound Truths for Inner and Outer Peace (Hay House, March 2018), anextraordinary collaboration with Dyer and a collective known as the WE Guides, including St. Francis of Assisi, bringing forth vital information for all of humanity on how we can achieve heaven on earth today.

 Karen Noé is the founder of the Angel Quest Center in New Jersey, an internationally sought-after medium, spiritual counselor, healer and the author of the bestselling books Your Life After Their Death: A Medium’s Guide to Healing After a Loss and Through the Eyes of Another: A Medium’s Guide to Creating Heaven on Earth by Encountering Your Life Review Now.  www.karennoe.com

Raise Empowered Kids with Mary DeMocker

Join us live on Tuesday, May 15th at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time.  Todd Alan and I will be speaking with writer, activist, and parent Mary DeMocker as she offers a lively summary of her blueprint for climate action.  Her very recent book is available now: The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep (April 2018 from New World Library).

Starting with a project on her own front lawn to protest proposed fracking in Oregon, DeMocker’s project united her neighborhood, gave attention to the issue, brought in young children who helped with postcards and teenagers who drew social media attention. It made the news. Their families and friends showed up to cheer them on and left with a sense of optimism. And then parents came and asked, “Do you have a list of ten things I can do?”  That list grew into her new book, which offers ten times the number of things families can do to grow closer and revolutionize. And it’s a menu of possibilities, not a ‘to-do’ list that no single human being, much less a busy parent could accomplish.  Learn more about Mary at:  http://www.marydemocker.com/

Please feel free to contact Coach Debby by Facebook messenger and send it your text question.  We read as many listener questions on the show as possible.

The Agape Way with TJ Woodward

Todd Alan and I think of TJ Woodward as the guru of addiction. TJ’s congregation became known as the Agape Bay Area in 2016. It is a 21st century movement for people who consider themselves spiritual explorers and have a divine impulse for personal and global transformation.​ Our mission is to encourage and inspire the awakening of human consciousness.

The essence of Agape is best described by its founder, Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith:  “When I founded the Agape International Spiritual Center and community in 1986, we ‘visioned’ it as a movement that would take a stand for love, for peace, for being a beneficial presence on the planet.” That’s why it was named “Agape,” which in Greek means unconditional love. Agape’s vision is fueled by the love of the One indefinable yet unmistakable Presence whose vehicle on earth is the human heart and soul.

Woodward is both a spiritual counselor and spiritual director of prestigious top-tier, high-end addiction treatment centers.  TJ published his first book, Conscious BEING: Awakening to Your True Nature in 2015, and his second book, Conscious Recovery: A Fresh Perspective on Addiction was released in December of 2017.

In 2017, TJ launched The Conscious Recovery MethodTM, which is a ground breaking and effective approach to viewing and treating addiction. TJ Woodward’s Conscious Recovery MethodTM moves beyond simply treating behaviors and symptoms. It focuses on the underlying root causes that drive destructive patterns, while providing clear steps for letting go of core false beliefs that lead to addictive tendencies.

Here is an excerpt from his first book, Conscious Being:  “In the process of growing up and individuating, we differentiate ourselves from our family members, to a certain degree. Much of our unconscious programming remains intact for the rest of our lives. However, we can begin to question it and do the important inner work of releasing those aspects of our conditioning that no longer serve our highest good. This involves becoming conscious of the lens through which we are viewing the world. We might ask ourselves whether we are in agreement with that view. First we need to become conscious of the ingrained habits of mind that cause us to judge, to have prejudice, to be fearful when there is no reason to be, to think in limited ways—about ourselves, others, and the world in general. Once identified, we can evaluate these inherited habits of thinking. Are they true or useful for us? Do they come from a loving, openhearted place or a closed-hearted, fearful one? If we have outgrown those patterns, attitudes, and actions, we can let them go, trusting in this natural process of updating our beliefs and perspectives.”

We are delighted to welcome TJ Woodward back for a fireside chat about his newer book, Conscious Recovery, and latest developments with his addiction retreats.  www.tjwoodward.com

March 13th: What the Bleep? with William Arntz and Dierdre Hade

This rumination on surprise comes courtesy of William Arntz, the creator and producer who surprised, confounded and delighted with his remarkable film What the Bleep Do We Know!? Now he teams with his wife, internationally renowned spiritual teacher and poet Deirdre Hade and award-winning photographer Endre Balogh to create something else quite special.

The (not so) Little Book of Surprises is anchored with Hade’s visionary and lyrical poetry skipping lightly about over the stunning images curated by Balogh. Each breathtaking page creates an emotional resonance with the reader…using surprise as the doorway to transformation and transcendence. The images in the book are part eye candy/part soul candy. They pile on a sensory experience that mounts the sense of surprise page by page.

All of the book’s creators began life in different fields-Arntz as a laser physicist working on “Star Wars” high energy lasers; Hade as a ballet dancer and choreographer, Balogh continues as an internationally regarded concert violinist. And through life’s mystery and surprise, they emerged as something else entirely, which makes them imminently qualified to bring forth a meditation in print on the gifts of surprise.   For more information please visit: www.BookOfSurprises.com
