Camerado, I Give You My Hand with Maura Poston Zagrans

About Camerado, I Give You My Hand

For many years Dr. David T. Link helped young men and women prepare to become lawyers. After his wife died, and at a time in his life when most people retire, Dr. Link felt called to serve the Church and to aid the men that his profession normally put behind bars, ministering healing and forgiveness to murderers, thieves, and what many would call the least of society.

The Money Keys with Karen Russo

KarenRApril 26th, 2016 – Many of us, perhaps unconsciously, think of money as problematic, maybe even “the root of all evil.” However, money is completely neutral; its power is in the story we tell of it.

Reverend, money expert, and author of Money Keys, Karen Russo, shares in our interview, not only a more personally beneficial way we can think about money but how we can begin to master it.

Money is a tool like language or technology, put to use for the profound and the profane. To use it profoundly, we must tune into our spirituality, beliefs and habits.

These three concepts, along with faith and community help us to experience financial power.

sailboat“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.” ~ Buddha

Early in my exploration of spirituality, I learned about “showing up” or being present in my life. Our daily lives are a gift and in order to experience the excitement of that gift, we must be present to receive it. Being stuck in the past with worry and fear over thoughts, such as, ”I should have…” or, “I could have…” or, “Why didn’t I….” rob us of the present moment. The past is history, and as of yet, we are unable to go back and change it. Alternatively, looking for the gift we received from past keeps us focused in the present moment.

The future is not here yet, so worry and fear over what might happen is futile. Think about how many times you have pondered the scenarios of perceived coming attractions. 99 % of the thought and worries never come true. We really have no control of what will happen.

What we have control of is our choices in the present moment. Our intentions guide us toward those choices. In other words, we must be aware of our intentions to make good choices. This is how we shape our destiny without all of the worry and fear of what might happen.

What gifts can you expect to receive from showing up in the present?

Clarity of mind: We experience thoughts and ideas that seem to just flow out of us. We have better focus on the things that are right here, right now.

Positive attitude: When there is little fear, negative thoughts and ideas become non-existent. We show up being the person that we really are.

Ease and Grace: In the presence of others, we will show up in a state of calmness. Fear does not hold us back from our endeavors in the present moment.

Showing up and being present is a practice, and over time, it becomes a habit. Those thought loops that whirl back and forth through our memories and fantasies will come up, but we become aware of how they are distracting us from being present. We then HAVE THE POWER to choose our thoughts.

When it came to practicing all this, what really worked for me was finding that third-person in my mind that could witness my thoughts and throw the flag when I found my mind pondering the past or contemplating the future. Then I focused on my breath, an excellent way to become present. It has been proven that focused breathing through the nose has a great calming effect. This is a great place to start.

Namaste my friends, and pass it on. You won’t get to keep it unless you give it away.

Leggo my EGO

2067b29b-c25a-4d9a-9e4d-0169fda4e90fWhen I began my journey in self exploration, I really resonated with the acronym for EGO, Edging God Out (of my life).  As time progressed, I came to a deeper understanding about EGO.  It’s as though my ego was in charge, like a boss, preventing God from flowing through me. This was a huge revelation for me, a total game changer in how I showed up in the world.

Don’t get me wrong, we need the ego! The ego is the one that makes those phone calls to clients and shows up on time for appointments.  It helps you move forward with your endeavors, dreams, visions and goals. The trick is to get the EGO working for you as an employee instead of you working for it as your boss.

And get this – the Boss EGO can only survive if you are living in the past or the future. It is impossible for it to have control over you in the present moment. Here is how you call the Boss out:

Pay attention to how your Boss EGO works in your life.  Notice when you feel:

  • A need to be right or better than others.
  • Offended by what others say or do.
  • A desire for revenge or retaliation.
  • Negative emotions, such as misery, worry, fear and conflict.

Now start practicing:

  • Detachment from past titles and awards; they do not define your true Self.
  • Listening to others, really listening to them from your heart.
  • Being present with others, refraining from jumping into the conversation with your point of view or answer.

Remember, the bossy EGO wants to keep things as they’ve always been – fearful, doubtful, worried, angry; it doesn’t like change!  Learning to fire the Boss EGO and demote it to your employee is a huge step toward a spiritual transformation.  Once this happens, the doorways to your true Self opens.

Make it a great day, and remember, it’s a choice!

Navigating path of healing with Susan Hall

susanhallOctober 14th, 2014  Guest, Susan Liberty Hall. The first time I visited her website, the Rocky theme song came to mind – Susan is a fighter. Much unlike Rocky, though, she “fought” the health care system in a very mindful, spiritual way.

Susan Liberty Hall is a breast cancer survivor, and her book, Ha, I laugh in the Face of Cancer, is about taking responsibility for your own healing, removing the decision making from medical doctors, and as she puts it – setting the sail of your ship and navigating your path toward healing. It’s going to be an enlightening discussion on the often fearful topics of cancer, disease, and poor health. We’re looking forward to our visit from Susan and her robust, holistic, and powerful perspective on health in its weakest state.
