Ancient Texts Meet Modern Times

Listen to “Ancient Texts Meet Modern Times” on Spreaker.

Denise Alexander Pyle is passionate about the fact that the 10 Commandments are needed today more than ever. And she has a unique style in stating her sense of urgency. She says, “The Ten Commandments are comprised of ten powerful rules for our survival, governed by the underlying principle of unbridled love of God, ourselves, and each other.

Sounds intriguing, yes?  Join us live on July 10th at 10:00 a.m. PST and be sure to send your texts our way!

As Denise asserts, If you haven’t committed adultery recently or you’ve not “kept the Sabbath Holy,” then you might not be thinking that the Ten Commandments are uppermost in your mind.

 But when you read her book, The Power of 1(0): A Guide to Living the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule in Modern Times you’ll discover that “keeping the Sabbath Holy,” is really about providing mercy in the world — and the decree against adultery is actually about keeping your commitments to yourself and others in all things.

 This unique reinterpretation of the 10 Commandments and the1 Golden Rule (hence the power of 1(0) ), is designed to make these precepts urgent and relevant to today’s world – especially where truth seems fluid and morality a matter of perception.

The Pain Companion with Sarah Anne Shockley

How many people in the US alone are fighting pain?  Literally millions.  People flood to the emergency room due to physical pain, and that often leads to addiction to pain medications while unremitting discomfort takes over peoples lives.  Author Sarah Anne Shockley, who has personally lived with chronic pain since 2007, offers fellow pain sufferers a compassionate and supportive guide in her book, The Pain Companion: Everyday Wisdom for Living With and Moving Beyond Chronic Pain. 

“I cannot know your personal suffering, of course; only you can,” writes Sarah. “But I do understand the experience of being in significant and relentless pain for long periods of time, and I understand the fear, sadness, and frustration associated with long-term physical debilitation. So I can say that this book has been written from inside of pain, a perspective on the experience and the healing of pain that we are seldom offered.”

Clarifying Your Mission Statement

Right now, colleges all over the U.S. are honoring graduates who are stepping into the world with goals to fulfill their mission statements.  They have worked hard to cultivate a clear path for their future, but what is the relationship between the plans and the outcomes?  Can we carve them out?  What if the unexpected comes along; then what??

Our friend, Clark Roberts, had to face life on new terms as he lost his site at age 24.  While that may have changed his plans, it only clarified his mission statement and his ultimate purpose to serve others.  “Our accomplishments are not measured by our abilities or disabilities but rather by our willingness to try!”  This quote has anchored Clark Roberts in his life when things did not go as planned and he had to understand the power behind a willing and open mind.

Todd’s Story by Coach Debby

Todd sat across from me late in the afternoon for a french tip and fries after most people had returned to their workplaces.  He was telling me his story about alcoholism.  We’d only known each other for a week, and this was our first date.  I listened intently.

I noticed that he was different than many people I had heard speak about their recovery process.  He was in complete acceptance that alcohol had no place in his present life.  None and done.  He didn’t miss it, relish it, long for it, fantasize about it, complain about it — none of that.  He had broken off his relationship with alcohol and he wanted me to know about it.

Of course, I wanted to write it all down!  I heard a book spewing out of him.

We continued to see each other often, and I encouraged him to share his story every chance he got:  “Tell bits and pieces to anyone you trust.  Watch their face.  Pay attention to their questions.  This will help you own your story.”

“What story?” he asked me.

“The book within you.”

“A book?  Really?” And then he followed up with, “I have always thought there might be a book in me, somewhere.”

Some of us are more excited to share our stories.  Some of us are timid or scared that people in the story will read it and be offended.  For certain, people can take offense even if you look at them wrong let alone feature them in your book.

But it is still important to share your story with those in your life who you deem as safe.  It’s an excellent place to start, and It helps you know your true story even better.  Later on, you can decide what stays in your public story and what you choose to edit out.  When you know the difference between the two, you’ve got the bones of a manuscript!

I was especially moved by Todd’s early memories of alcohol recovery, which we updated and placed in the very beginning of his book.  I remembered him sharing bits of it on our first date, and I must say, he had my complete attention.  Here’s the book version:

I was raised to be a man’s man, a strong farm hand, and basically an ordinary tough guy. My Dad influenced me powerfully. He grew up in a masculine world in middle America where he was a big football fan and raised to be a corn farmer. He coached me in football, baseball, basketball and soccer when I was a just a kid. If I got hurt while playing, I was told, “Shake it off!”… And, “Big boys don’t cry!”  Every injury was met with another chance to be tough as nails.  These messages were hammered into my brain and my body. Consequently, I became completely closed off from my feelings.

This was one of my first agreements in life:  Real men don’t feel.  I didn’t like it, but it was a concept straight from my dad, and it was all he knew.  The boy scouts enforced it even more, and later came the game of hunting wild animals – something I was not keen on – but these messages came from men I looked up to.  They were teaching me how to be a man’s man, as this was all they knew.

I was only 11 when my uncle introduced me to booze and I liked it!  I liked the way it made me feel.  I drank so much I got super intoxicated.  As the days pressed on, I could count on my uncle feeding this magic stuff to me and every time, I had the same reaction; I felt great!  Alcohol gave me the permission to feel superhuman!  This was the stuff, man!

Up until now, the only feelings I ever saw a man express was anger.  I noticed that when men got angry, they got their way.  It worked for me, too.  I could throw a tantrum and get what I wanted.  At age 12, my folks divorced and I spent a lot of time feeling really upset.  The only other option I knew was to numb out and try to feel nothing at all.  So now I had a new agreement:  I could feel angry or I could add a little alcohol and feel good.  Every chance I got, I chose the latter.

Not a bad start!  And it is only the very beginning of his story.  We sat down and crafted this one day to get his book rolling.

And then we wrote more, and talked more, and wrote more.

And at some point, the confusion of what to say became clear, and the feeling of fear turned to utter excitement. There are many phases, decisions, and re-working that needed to take place so that his story could be offered to a public audience with care.

Todd was overjoyed to see his words — his survival story — become a book.  I literally cried tears of joy.   It took time and attention and commitment. But I won’t say it was hard — it required dedication and focus, and there were many times when we laughed.

The process helped me build my business and brand: I help people write their books.  I’d love to help you.

Your true story is always about you, even though there were other important people.  That story you lived through has made you, changed you, shaped you, saved you, delivered you, and allowed you to be in this world, present and available.  Just think what that story could do for others.

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
