Never Outsource your Mission

Never outsource your mission in the world to someone else.”

Alina Boyte

Alina Boyte was our recent guest. She is the founder and director of Changemaker Institute, a brand new (since March 2021) public benefit corporation.

According to Wikipedia, public benefit corporations, also known as benefit corporations, are for-profit businesses whose charters commit them to social or environmental missions, not just maximizing shareholder value. These corporations take into account how other stakeholders such as communities and the environment will be affected by their actions.

Alina has years of experience in law as her resume suggests:

  • Stanford Law Grad with a PhD in copyright law and history
  • Professor at Mississippi College Law 
  • Awarded Cambridge Commonwealth Scholarship
  • Awarded Fulbright Scholarship
  • Awarded Lieberman Fellowship at Stanford

What I’ve come to realize in teaching law and attending law conferences is that things we know and talk about in academic circles never leave the ivory tower. We talk about it, debate it, and author a book only our mothers will read.”

Alina Boyte

Businesses don’t always get the information which allows them to apply important tools in a way that makes sense.

The mission of Changemaker Institute is to take what we know in academia and bring it to business. You can be a profitable business and influence social good at the same time.”

Alina Boyte

One company in Mississippi – Musee Bath – sells bath bombs and bath products. They influence social good by employing marginalized women such as former felons, domestic abuse survivors, and the homeless.

Musee makes handcrafted, natural products in Madison County, Mississippi with the mission of restoring lives by providing dignified work for vulnerable people in our community. We primarily hire women in recovery, people with disabilities, and people who have lived in chronic poverty. Our products are handmade in the USA with ethically sourced, natural ingredients. Our bath balms are cruelty-free, paraben-free, and sulfate-free and safe for all skin types.

Musee’s website

Their bath bombs are adorable, and I’m going to gift a few to my granddaughters.

Social impact is not just the responsibility of governments. Ordinary people can have impact. Businesses make an impact by who they employ, how they treat their employees, who they do business with, and the business model they develop.

Alina Boyte

Without these types of business, more people may return to prison and/or to situations that bring unhappy consequences.

Another example of a socially impactful business is Patagonia. They claim:

We’re in business to save our home planet.

Patagonia is Alina’s dream social impact company. They are a clothing company careful about causing no harm in the production of their merchandise. If something the consumer has purchased gets torn, the company will replace it rather than have it get thrown away. They’ll even collect your old clothes and recycle them for you.

Patagonia is making very conscious decisions and considering their impact for not only their customers, but for you, me, and the planet.

Alina Boyte

Consumers will feel better about purchasing from a company which is conscious about social issues because it allows them to also be part of the solution to those same issues.

How does Alina begin collaborating with a company about their social impact?

  • 1. Get clear on what impact looks like for the business. Each company can make a difference with something that is unique to them.
  • Start planning the ways the impact will be made – whether it’s the environment or marginalized communities
  • Consider strengths and weakness currently in the business. How is the business positioned in the market?
  • Start thinking about a specific outcome the business wants to be part of. Ending poverty? Ending hunger?
  • Make it happen through reverse engineering or other ways.

Look at the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN. No one would question the goodness of any of those outcomes.”

Alina Boyte

According to Wikipedia, The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly (UN-GA) and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030.

Alina claims you and/or your business can make sustainable change by focusing on changing on of four modalities:

  • Laws
  • Norms
  • Markets
  • Architecture

Let’s say a company wants to empower kids. They could focus on changing norms in education. Or, they could consider changing architecture – the infrastructure of teaching children. They could also create a new market where kids have opportunities they don’t have currently.

Alina Boyte

People are more conscious about how they spend their money and are more likely to do business with a company who is making social impact as opposed to those who are not.

Alina has a workshop coming up on Monday December 6, 2021 – The Changemakers Lab.

The Changemakers Lab™ workshop will provide you with:

  • 1. A solid framework to let you think about and create social change that calls to you
  • An easy-to-implement process to take you from confused and overwhelmed to clarity about your path to profitability and impact, and
  • straightforward system you can put in place to create a business that is good for you, people, and the planet.

Like a lab, you’ll study social change and record personal insights about how to make a unique difference in the world, craft your impact story, and design a business that is good for you, for people, and for the planet in a workbook that we will provide. 

And at the end of the workshop, you will have a book filled with your unique insights and a plan to put together an impact-based business that you can confidently talk to investors, customers, board members, and the public about.

Register here – and hurry!

Alina is so confident about the value she’s presenting that there is a 100% money back guarantee within 48 hours of the event. No questions asked.

Have courage. Take a stand. Don’t outsource your mission. Make an impact.

Coming Into Awareness of Trauma and Grief

Imagine blowing air into a balloon. You keep exhaling into the latex as the balloon expands more and more, getting bigger and bigger. Eventually the balloon will not be able to expand any longer and it. will. burst.

Our recent guest, Janine Naus used this metaphor to explain possible outcomes if we don’t learn to handle our trauma and grief. We can explode with unhealthy emotions if we don’t learn to be more mindful of the effects which trauma and grief have on us.

Janine is an internationally recognized Grief and Trauma Relief Specialist; a Certified Life, Spiritual, and Energetic Coach; a Certified Calm, Accepting, Resilient & Empathetic (CARE) Trauma Practitioner, and a best-selling author.

We can move through trauma. No matter how difficult it is there are steps to move through it.”

Janine Naus

In her books Janine offers tools to examine trauma and grief in all the areas we experience them. Her programs are outlined by four pillars:

  • Insight
  • Impact
  • Intuition
  • Implementation

You’ll also be given opportunity to journal. When I let my thoughts come out on paper I release what’s going on. Then I can read my narrative several months later and see the growth I’ve made. I can see my life has changed for the better.”

Janine Naus

Janine reminds us there are differing steps of healing from trauma and grief based on our individual journey and our ability to process the emotions we feel. To continue her healing process, Janine keeps a picture of herself as a baby behind her while in virtual conversations (as she was on Life Mastery Radio).

That picture is something my mother gave me. I put it behind my shoulder where I can look back at it as I talk with clients. It’s a reminder that I was a happy baby. We all came into the world beaming. Life gives us difficult experiences, but we can return to the happy state we began with.”

Janine Naus

Trauma and grief go together and can be associated with any loss, such as divorce, abuse, job loss, loss of a loved one, etc.

All of it is very traumatic. It’s important to have choice in how we heal from the trauma since we had no choice in the experience to begin with.”

Janine Naus

Janine explains it’s helpful to keep perspective by asking “why” questions.

Why am I here on this earth? Why am I feeling these emotions? Why is this experience happening in my life right now, and why do I need to learn from it?

Emotions are energy that needs to move through our bodies. Like that expanding balloon, it’s dangerous to hold it in. Let energy flow outward. Thoughts stick in our minds as well and may show up as shame. It’s scary to be vulnerable and face what we’re feeling. However, energy needs to move and flow.

Janine Naus

Janine reminds us that any emotions we feel are okay. We can open a door to the possibility of seeing the situation differently when we step outside of ourselves and witness it from a unique perspective.

Give yourself grace and space. Keep your mind on the process of healing and be gentle with yourself. Breathe deeply and stay present by narrating your actions.”  

Janine Naus

For instance, “I’m going to the kitchen and make myself a sandwich”, or “I’m going to take a warm bath while listening to my favorite music”.

Coming into an awareness of the present is key to healing. Know that you won’t be stuck in this unhappy place forever.

We are already the happy baby in our nostalgic photos. There is a higher power and connection when you can see the bigger view. We are never alone. Reach out for help.”

Janine Naus

During the healing process it’s helpful to focus on our bare minimum needs. Self-care and pampering yourself as much as possible will be important. Don’t worry about the extras – ask others to help.

Creating Heaven Wherever I AM is Janine’s book series.

The I AM is our connection. It’s also the solution. I AM is your healing strategy. I AM is your Godly sense. I AM is a descriptor and title. I AM is who you are on the inside.”

Janine Naus

Quoting from Joseph Benner’s book The Impersonal Life:

I AM the Tree of Life within you. My Life will and must push forth, but It will do it by gradual and steady growth. You cannot come into your fruitage before you have grown to it. Remember, My Life is all the time building you up into the perfection of health and strength and beauty, that must express outwardly as It is even now expressing within. You who have begun to realize I AM within, but have not yet learned to commune with Me, listen and learn now.

Your experience will give you lessons to create yourself anew. You’ll create a unique way to express your story to share with others. You are creating love and creating your own gifts.”

Janine Naus

Janine has a gift for our listeners – A 30 minute call with her to talk about one challenge you’re experiencing. You’ll get a strategy, a tool, and better understanding about ways to move forward.

You’ll learn ways to cope and respond from a unique perspective.”

Relationships and Longevity

I loved them. They were inspiring and life changing. They increased my confidence, and my skillfulness in relationships. At sixteen I knew that’s what I wanted to do for other people.”

Leah Fink

Leah Fink is describing her experience while attending personal development courses as a teenager. She went on to earn a degree in outdoor leadership and became a social worker. Her understanding of mental health expanded, and she worked at a wilderness retreat for troubled youth.

It was meaningful to watch the youth gain confidence, understand themselves, and rebuild relationships.

Leah Fink

Leah learned mental illness is often treated as a reaction to behavior.  

When your child is doing great, you give them a pat on the head. When they’re not doing great you send them to a counselor. The same thing happens to us as adults. We aren’t taught preventive or coping skills before we need them.”

Leah Fink

Leah’s passion and ability includes activities which foster a better understanding of self and others. Building these skills results in happier and more successful lives. She owns All Thrive, where her public speaking and engaging workshops strengthen people, solidify their relationships, and change lives.

Relationships are essential to our wellbeing – relationships to self, others, and aspects of our lives. It’s hard to recover from a damaged relationship.

Leah Fink

Leah offered her definition of wellbeing:

Perspective. Look at the world as happy and fulfilling rather than the opposite

Mental attitude. What is limiting your mindset? Knowing how to unblock the limitations you put on yourself

Healing. Trauma, large and small builds up in us and healing is necessary

Coping Skills. Boredom, social media, and distraction are often go-to coping skills, but are not a solution.

Belonging is a core need for everyone. All behavior is a way to fill an emotional need. It helps to understand why the behavior and why the emotion.

Leah Fink

Leah’s mission is to help protect people from the pain of damaged relationships.

The quality and quantity of relationships affects not only our mental health, but our physical health and longevity. Literally how long you live is impacted by your relationships.”

Leah Fink

To help her clients improve relationships, Leah uses a personality typology tool called True Colours. By understanding yourself and others, you will value your relationships more readily, and treat others in a language they understand.

BLUE: emotional type and needs validation through emotion. Cares a lot about relationships. They are sincere when asking about your family. They are looking for deep meaningful conversations. They get stressed when they don’t have that such as covid and not able to hug or see family members.

GREEN: logical and analytical. I “think” and “why?” statements are common. Often looking for information and resources. They get stressed when they don’t have information and must make a quick decision. Give them what they want – answer questions, info and space.

GOLD: these are the organized, planner people. They have their next five years planned and talk about systems and schedules. They’ve been stressed during covid since they haven’t been able to plan. Help them make a structure or offer to help with their plan.

ORANGE: spontaneous and adventurous; the life of the party. When they get stressed they may lash out, and push boundaries because they don’t like rules and limitations. You can help these people by doing something fun in the moment.

Can you recognize yourself, family, and closest friends? It’s helpful to keep in mind how you can help others to destress. They are interacting in the best way they know how.

Don’t box people in but recognize that you can positively influence your relationships.

Leah Fink

Leah says curiosity is critical for relationships. Ask questions to gain knowledge about people. Communicate where you naturally come from. Knowing what stresses and destresses you will be helpful.

Recognize that people tend to view their own actions through good intentions but view others’ actions through bad intentions. Always assume a good intention.”

Leah Fink

Leah reminds us it’s not always easy to retrain ourselves. We’ve practiced unhealthy relationship skills our whole lives, and the best we can do is set an intention every day to work toward healthy relationships.

Set up a time for a virtual coffee break with Leah, and talk to her about your relationships and mental health: https://calendly.com/leah-fink/virtual-coffee

Spending, Suicide, & Scarlett O’Hara

I had two credit cards. I made the minimum payment on one credit card, then used the available balance on that card to pay the minimum payment on a second credit card, then used the available balance on the second card to buy groceries.”

Heather Abbott

Because she’s “been there” our most recent guest, Heather Abbott wants to help those who need more control of finances and happiness in their life. Her passion comes from having given her power away both financially and emotionally in her former marriage.  After 25 years of unrecognized emotional and mental abuse, Heather was standing three feet away from her abusive husband when he shot himself in an act of suicide.

It’s far easier to have someone shoot themselves in front of you than to be mentally abused. It was the abuse which gave me nightmares.

Heather Abbott

Heather is now known as the Prosperity Pro, and host of the Prosperity & Possibilities podcast. She is a CPA, financial advisor, mindset coach, and the author of the upcoming book, Financial Empowerment for Women.

Using a combination of right brain mindset work with decades of experience and knowledge in money matters, Heather’s clients have their finances demystified and learn financial management is not only attainable, but enjoyable. Add into the recipe Heather’s positive outlook, and she’ll teach you to live your best life.

Many people (especially women) are taking over finances for the first time after trauma, loss of a significant other, or loss of wealth. These individuals need help with basics. You don’t want to overwhelm them especially when dealing with sudden loss of a spouse.”  

Heather Abbott

Can everyone be a millionaire? Yes.

You get to see the first step, but no more steps until you take the first one. You must trust. The first step to financial freedom is setting the intention. You must believe you can do it, and that you can control your life.

Heather Abbott

You can use a positive affirmation such as, “This is my day, and I can’t wait to see what miracles are in store”.

This is contrary to what Heather used to do to cope with her abusive situation. Like Scarlett O’Hara from Gone with the Wind, she’d say…

I can’t deal with that now. If I think about it now I’ll go crazy. I’ll think about it tomorrow”.

We often live in denial. I didn’t realize I was abused until he had been dead for four months. I shielded myself emotionally, and I worked at being positive constantly.

Heather Abbott

Heather shared some advice with our audience:

  • Set a timer for 60 seconds and think only positive thoughts for that one minute.
  • Practice clearing negative blocks until it becomes a habit. At the same time, you’ll be building muscles of resistance to situations that will try to knock you over.
  • Stop talking about the problems.

If you talk about the problem, the problem increases. You can’t see the solution since you’re only focused on the problem. Find the good.

Heather Abbott

Heather explained it takes 16 seconds for momentum to get going. Everything in our reality has two sides, and we may focus on the lack we feel rather than allowing the abundance to appear.

If you’re a realist you’re a pessimist. Reality is not the present because by the time you think about it, it’s past.”

Heather Abbott

Heather quoted a poem she remembered from her youth:

Life is what you make it, so make it bright and true; and if to you it’s gloomy, it’s not the world, it’s you

If you have positivity, you’ll have money. It’s important to have clarity about your numbers at every income level.

Your mindset is your financial container, and if your mindset is small, you have a container too small. You will only be financially successful when you increase the size of your container.

Not knowing your numbers is like building a house on an unstable foundation.”

Heather Abbott

Heather’s coaching prowess is powerful because of her past. She helps individuals, businesses, and youth

Heather has an event coming up, and she is giving it to our listeners FREE! (a $297 value) There is no replay, so you must take advantage of the November 9 workshop. Use code MYGIFT when you register at this LINK: Financial Clarity for Prosperity

My takeaways from our time with Heather Abbott:

  • Think positive
  • Live by the numbers
  • Build financial muscles

“After all, tomorrow is another day!”

Are You In the Five to Ten Percent?

Only five to ten percent of people design their own life.”

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Our recent guest, Sherry Stirling Fernandez has written the book (literally) to help everyone design their own life. Her book is (no connection to our show) Life Mastery – Personal Progression Toward an Infinite Potential

Life mastery is most easily defined by what life mastery isn’t.”

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry described what life mastery isn’t as: feeling out of control, stressed out, spinning your wheels, and getting nowhere; mad at yourself for making bad choices, then making the same choices again, etc.

It doesn’t feel good to be out of control. It feels better to be the master of what you eat, your finances, your relationships, mindset, etcetera. Happiness is moving forward toward our infinite potential.”

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry’s book focuses on eight areas of Life Mastery, which is goal setting and habit-forming behaviors.

  • Physical
  • Spiritual
  • Relationships
  • Education
  • Motivation
  • Money
  • Lifestyle
  • Character

Everything she writes about is from personal experience and the result of her study of principles of success. Besides being an author, Sherry teaches personal development. She’s a speaker and mentor.

Her family had nothing when Sherry was young. In that desperate situation she always wanted to be successful. She searched out methods and tools, and through trial and error has learned the secrets to life mastery. Sherry hopes her book will shorten the learning process for you.

It feels big to try to get from here to there. Everything feels out of control, and we don’t know where to start. Humans were not designed to grow in great big leaps. We create success in little steps every day.”

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry mentions how the very act of starting something will begin to bring life into better focus. She’s learned that good systems, good tools, and good instruction are key.

It’s who you are becoming that attracts success to you. It’s a constant, confident walk toward what you want.

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry’s book instructs the reader to start with simple habits you want to develop. She provides a tracking sheet as part of her system.

You’ll track your progress and be accountable to your list. It’s the bomb for developing habits every day.

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry explained how actually checking off items completed every day keeps us motivated.

You only have so much will power in a day. When you create a habit you don’t have to depend on will power any longer.”

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry calls herself a mentor rather than coach because her system teaches real skills. Sherry practices all the skills she preaches, and her clients know she has done exactly what she’s asking them to do.

For instance, if someone comes to Sherry only wanting to grow wealth, she won’t work with them. She feels ignoring the other 7 areas of life mastery would not bring them the desired outcome.

Growing wealth means working on all 8 areas of life mastery. Work on all of you.

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Sherry’s book is three parts:

The Why – her story

The What – covers each of the 8 areas to set goals in and master

The How – includes the tracking sheet, written affirmations, and an assessment.

The tracking sheet is free on her website, and she promises results right away when you start using it.  

The key to a better community is a better you. The rest will take care of itself.”

Sherry Stirling Fernandez

Well, then…are you headed toward the top 5-10 percent?

Unleashing your Power!

Our most recent guest, Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab, wrote a book for her two sons, which she gratefully now shares with the rest of us. She joined us all the way from her home country of Lebanon to be a guest on our show.

I’ve had a rich life experience with every possible hardship.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Dr. Nahla’s experiences are shared in her book, Untamable – Claim your Power, Live Fearlessly, and Become Unstoppable. Her hardships include:

  • Bullying
  • Rejection
  • Violence
  • Parental & cultural suppression
  • War
  • Immigrating from homeland
  • Discrimination
  • Loneliness
  • Workplace harassment
  • Extreme poverty
  • Starvation and lack of clean water
  • Illness and poor health

Despite this list (which is incomplete) Nahla has discovered ways to unleash her personal power to not only endure but thrive during all of life’s challenges. Through exercises provided in her book, we can learn to do the same.

Nahla suggests people should consider how their perspective affects their happiness. You either look at life as a victim of the experience, or as a learner of life.

Nahla was born in Lebanon and immigrated to Canada as a small child. She was horribly mistreated there by her classmates and teachers. This did not stop Nahla. She discovered ways to be happy.

We are not here to simply live, work, and die. We are here to experience, to learn to love, and to create. Stop and recognize that we are powerful. We have free will. We become victims by surrendering to someone else.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

As a naïve young woman in the workplace enduring harassment, Nahla ignored her manager’s advances and never let him control her thoughts.

Our thoughts are our magical powers. The challenge is implementation. If we master our thoughts, we master our emotions.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

How can we make such a shift?

We adopt a lifestyle which enables us to live in a postitive state. Life tries to keep us distracted, fearful, anxious, lost, and doubtful.

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Nahla’s book teaches us to connect, trust, and accept. There is a power which created us, but we become too distracted by day-to-day life to recognize it. Her book provides exercises. She uses a comparison of physical exercise to spiritual exercise.

A lean body requires a change of lifestyle. You must do the same thing for your spirit. People living a positive lifestyle will never be victims.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Nahla asks us to consider some questions:

  • What makes you happy?
  • Why do you exist?
  • What are you surrendering to?
  • What program are we running in our thoughts?

Ninety five percent of our behavior is triggered by subconscious thoughts. We are running a program and we can become unaware of our thoughts. You can turn your circumstances around with your thoughts and the amazing power that’s there for us to use.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Nahla mentioned a way she ignites her magical powers of controlling her thoughts:

If I notice myself becoming rude, I’m going to question this and wonder why I’m being rude. The moment I ask, I change the programming. Everything is distracting us from our powers. The moment we are brave enough to calm down we will feel miracles happening.

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

We are not designed to live as individuals.

You need to be well connected and strong spiritually before you can connect to others. Having no community is a dangerous place to be.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Negative energies cannot sustain themselves too long. Your healing and recovery are faster when you live a positive lifestyle.

One key element that gave me strength is the belief of a higher power. I loved God and wanted to be worthy no matter how hard things got.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Today, Nahla looks back and discovers with every challenging event there was a happy ending. She is grateful for clean air, trees, and healthy food. A routine of meditation, exercise, and a healthy diet leaves Nahla filled with love and energy at the end of every day.

Dreaming is one of our innate functionalities. Every night I went to sleep dreaming of something beautiful. I dreamed about my future husband when I was a six-year-old. Dreaming is therapeutic while going through suffering.

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

Her husband had been dreaming of Nahla as well.

Enjoyment of life is far stronger than living in fear. It’s much harder to clean up the negativity once you’ve let it in. Keep the door closed and be selective of who you let in your ‘house’. Practice a lifestyle that keeps your thoughts in control.”

Dr. Nahla Khaddage Bou-Diab

We must go through challenges, but we don’t have to suffer through them.

You can purchase Nahla’s book on Amazon. Learn more about her at nahlaboudiab.com

The Rubik’s Cube Miracle

Has your life ever felt like a Rubik’s Cube? Have experiences beyond your control gotten you out of alignment with who you know you are or want to be? Are you tired of trying repeatedly to line up needs of your life with what you want, and failing?

Wendy Darling has been called an enigma, a miracle worker, and a fairy godmother. Although these are names others have given her, she admits to be very creative, connected, and strategic when it comes to opening the minds of her clients to the miracles of life – the solution to the Rubik’s Cube, perhaps.

Albert Einstein said there are two ways to look at life. Either nothing is a miracle, or everything is.”

Wendy Darling

Wendy explains miracles can be a surprise phone call, an unexpected opportunity, and/or a new perspective.

Miracles are everywhere all the time. Pay attention to what you’re grateful for. What really matters? There are blessings with every challenge, and always opportunity.

Wendy Darling

Wendy hasn’t always looked at life this way. She wrote her book, Create your Miraculous Life – It’s Never Too Late during the Covid -19 pandemic. She was facing the age of 70 straight on, and her son suffered from a serious illness.

My life was feeling un-miraculous. I was forced to dig deep and find a way to make the shift.”

Wendy Darling

Wendy herself had a life-changing accident 30 years ago. She was scheduled to travel for business, and despite being sick, forced her workaholic self to get to the airport. While there, she fainted and fell 25 feet.

I bungee jumped without the cord.”

Wendy Darling

Her right leg was shattered, her back fractured, and Wendy suffered a traumatic brain injury which wasn’t immediately diagnosed. At the time she wasn’t sure she’d walk again, and then she was brought to her knees.

On week four of my hospital stay, my husband arrived with bags packed and announced he was leaving me. At the divorce hearing, he was awarded full custody of our 4-year-old son. This was the final blow. There was nothing left in my life which defined my identity. I was praying for a miracle.

Wendy Darling

Taking a suggestion from her mother, Wendy began to mediate for the first time in her life. She learned that her mind and body would only relax when she allowed a melodic type of singing to awaken and be released from inside her. She would meditate and sing in the closet.

Soon after that, Wendy became aware of her intuitiveness and ability to see the energetic field of others.

Little by little I accepted who I was and began to work with the Miraculous Living Method.”

Wendy Darling

Wendy says her method creates a unique frequency in a person which allows the undercurrent of their past experiences to be released. They are no longer held back. Her method includes brain and mind training, so their deepest desires are achieved.

Like completing the Rubik’s cube, clients’ results come easier and faster. People Wendy works with make more money, attract loving relationships, heal from emotional trauma, lose weight, etc.

I feel very blessed that I can offer this today – healing the past to design the future. The undercurrent of your past experience is taken care of by the process, and you don’t have to relive experiences to benefit from the process.

Wendy Darling

Wendy says it’s important for us to take a step back and decide what we really want. Whatever IT is, we need to be honest and reach out for support. She offers a jumpstart package teaching her methodology. A typical time to work with her is three months once a week.

If you could wave a magic wand, what would you really want your life to look like?”

Wendy Darling

Miracles are a co-creative experience. We must be asking for miracles, then be open to receive them. And love has everything to do with it.

When we love we can positively impact thousands of people because of the vibration and energy we put off. I fill myself up first, then send love to my neighborhood, town, and my state. We can help our world get into a much healthier place. The one thing you can do to shift your life is provide for yourself and serve someone else.”

Wendy Darling

Wendy includes a prayer at the end of each chapter of her book. She did so because prayer helps people connect to the higher power of universal intelligence and opens our hearts and ears to our inner guidance system.

On Wendy’s website (HERE) you’ll find an RQ Assessment (Relationship Quotient) which you can take to learn about the ways you interact with others.

Be sure to contact Wendy because she can provide the rubric to that dang unsolvable Rubik’s Cube! Want a jumpstart? Email: Wendy@WendyDarling.com

You Are Your Own Guru

Centering the Mind ~ Dr. Christopher Macklin

From the introduction of Dr. Christopher Macklin’s book, Centering the Mind: Healing Stress, Anxiety, Depression, ADD, OCD, & PTSD

Humanity is experiencing an epidemic in mental/emotional health disorders. The symptoms of chronic stress, anxiety, depression, OCD, ADD, and PTSD are largely caused by the trappings of our modern lifestyle and the many toxins in the world.

This was not the case just a mere 50-100 years ago. At the same time, the nature of how the world has changed within the last 100 years has created a downward spiral in the levels of health and in the quality of life that most people are experiencing. Each subsequent generation has been increasingly challenged and destabilized. Perception, discernment, and memory are being adversely affected. People are losing the capacity to remember what a healthy and whole life looks like. And because of all the mental and emotional disorders, life itself is becoming more and more chaotic, unstable, and violent.

We are more powerful than we know. We have all we need within us to heal. Many times, we just need a helping hand to remind us of what’s possible and to help us understand how to move forward.

Introduction to Centering the Mind by Dr. Christopher Macklin

Dr. Christopher Macklin practices Divine Healing, which is an energy modality not tied to a particular religion or spiritual path.

Since everything in our body is made of energy, it only makes sense to heal the body through using energy.

Dr. Christopher Macklin

Centering the Mind is Dr. Macklin’s fourth out of five books. The last few years he’s seen people (even the spiritually minded) go south and get very anxious. He feels it’s time to take a step back from it all and get into a place where the people around you ground you; and where you can look for your passion.

With his many programs and healings, Dr. Macklin deals with 80,000 people a week, from groups to private conversations. Many people say, “I don’t know what to do. I don’t belong here”.

I help people get back to their sovereign self. We are our own guru. Find your passion and get excited. That’s where people find their inner strength to combat the anxiety.”

Dr. Christopher Macklin

Dr. Macklin went bankrupt in 2007. He had no money for gas in his car, and his only possessions were three Walmart bags of clothes.

Take a step back and get centered. Get back to your life. Change it to enjoy it. Find the fire in your belly. You will see God’s plan. You don’t have to try to find your gift. It’s there. It may be hidden and forgotten, but it’s there.”

Dr. Christopher Macklin

One of the root causes of disease, according to Dr. Macklin, is that we ingest too much emotion. This lowers our vibration. Then pathogens will permeate our cells and cause disease. He claims we can start to release that emotion with psychic surgery.

Releasing emotions causes your vibrations to raise. You can get to God Space when you keep your vibrations high and focus on what you love.”

Dr. Christopher Macklin

Some steps to accomplishing what Dr. Macklin suggests are:

  • Identify that 95% of our beliefs are blah, blah, blah.
  • Stop running on the hamster wheel of knowledge and switch off what’s addicting you.
  • Get out of the matrix of shame and stay in your sacred space.
  • Use meditations instead of drugs.

Knowing our gift(s) and purpose are similar. Knowing your gift gives you purpose; purpose helps you identify your gift. Dr. Macklin says it’s important to understand what comes to you naturally and use your gift(s) to help as many people as possible.

Todd confessed his Gift: “Lighting the path that leads others to the fire that sparks the fire in their own heart.

During his healing sessions, Dr. Macklin has cured:

  • Cancers
  • Blood sugar issues
  • Heart chakra
  • Toxic bodies
  • Heavy metal poisoning
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Lyme disease
  • Tumors
  • Emotion

Dr. Macklin explained there are also different classes of entities which attach to us and create negative energies. We can say a prayer to keep them out. By doing so, we keep our vibrational energy high to combat them.

Dr Macklin offered our listening audience this Prayer of Protection:

I am of God. I ground myself to the Earth.

Dear God,  I command that we create 27 esoteric merkaba fields around me to protect me from any negative entities, fractals thereof, manipulations, and transmissional frequencies which are not for my highest good through all space time continuum in every dimension.

We thank you, God, and send you our unconditional love. So be it.

The most powerful prayer on this planet and keeps the entities away.”

Dr. Macklin closed out our interview with him by offering a powerful affirmation:

I am divine love and wisdom. I am worthy of all the abundance God has for me.

Becoming Aware of Your Bully Actions

It often seems like a rite of passage to be bullied as a child at school. These experiences can be severe and lasting, or a one-time unpleasant experience. Regardless of the type or severity of the fearful and often humiliating experience, many children are deeply affected by bullying events.

Bullying

In the day and age of social media and the internet, bullying has expanded to a new level for many children. No longer are they “safe” from the bully at home. Now, social media follows the victim 24/7.

The response society has given to bullying to this point provides little relief for children in the throes of it. Especially when many times the bullies are parents and/or teachers.

Now, Kelly Karius, our most recent guest on Life Mastery Radio, has created a system to help children, families, and schools react to, and treat bullying, differently.  It’s a system which has provided amazing results.

Kelly Karius

Families have changed the culture of their home. Kids use new skills on the bus to school. Children grow up and use the tools they’re taught in many areas of their life.”

Kelly Karius

Kelly Karius is the creator of The Key Method of Communication, and one of the main pieces of her program is called The No Such Thing As A Bully System

I started working on this after an experience when I was hired by parents to investigate a teacher who was allegedly mistreating kids. I wondered, what good does it do to teach kids about combating bullying, if parents and teachers aren’t practicing the proper skills to reinforce it.”

Kelly Karius

Kelly knew children needed to be strengthened and taught to take control. After she’d completed her original book, Kelly describes an electric shock which went through her body, causing her to reread her book and remove the words “bully” and “victim” since these labels alone were exacerbating the bullying issues.

She began an immediate rewrite and published the book with a new title: No Such Thing as A Bully; Shred the Label, Save A Child.

The labels we’ve given kids no longer work. Labels unfairly describe the person. Instead, we must look at the context of a person’s life and see what strengthening tools they need to change their bully actions.”

Kelly Karius

Kelly explained we all use bully actions and victim responses. Rather than be labeled a bully, which can ruin a reputation, we should replace personal judgment, and focus on changing the behavior.  

Our program focuses on individual responsibility. Instead of saying you’re a bully, say that was a bully action. This prevents the cycle of bullying since bullies often get power from the title (reputation). Our program helps the victim’s response to the bully action. If there is no victim response, then the bully becomes powerless with nowhere to go.”

Kelly Karius

If you’re like me, when you witness bullying, racism, and the like, paralysis can set in.  You take no action. Kelly explained we often see a reflection of ourselves and don’t know how to manage that, which can also hold us back in the moment. Lastly, if we haven’t be trained in the actions we should take during events as described, that will also keep us from responding appropriately.

Kelly’s No Such Thing As A Bully system offers role plays as tools. These tools teach us how to handle situations.

Kelly suggests you explore the option of a No Such Thing as a Bully® Community Immersion in your community. Or present the idea of having people in your community certified in effective tools to strengthen youth and parents. This will provide a change to the fundamental systems that are creating a problem. More information is found at http://nosuchthingasabully.com

How do parents identify that bullying is happening to their child?

  • Not letting you near their social media sites
  • Quick emotional swing while looking at phone
  • Withdrawal
  • More internet use

Our program works with any type of bullying – cyber bullying, sibling rivalry, bullying at work. We often overcomplicate it. The solution is always strengthening the kids and reversing the inaccurate thoughts. Checking in. Asking questions. Having conversations.”

Kelly Karius

And folks, many times WE take bully actions. For instance, have YOU ever…

  • …Left somebody out of your social circle?
  • …Talked behind someone else’s back?
  • …Hit somebody?

These describe bully actions. Rather than adopt the label “bully” it’s best to see that, without knowing it, we often participate in behaviors we’d advise our own children to avoid.

The only thing we ever have control of is ourselves. Our interactions with others will affect us as much as we allow them to.”

Kelly Karius

There are 25 Bully-Proofing-Protections in Kelly’s book. And they’re not just for children. They will help you at work, and in other relationships. We should all be careful with the example we set for the young people in our life as well.

Examine these actions about yourself:

  • Do you laugh at or mock others in your child’s presence?
  • Do you make derogatory jokes that others don’t appreciate?
  • Do you engage in, or talk about physical violence as a resolution tactic?

When parents and adults (including teachers, clergymen, organizational leaders, and others) begin to practice the tools of No Such Thing As A Bully system themselves, their shift in behavior will affects the child, the family, schools, etc.

Kelly is offering you a gift, which includes 5 lessons. She asks you to consider this an urgent call to begin personal shifts.

She also offers membership in her No Such Thing As A Bully Community for two years. Five people can become certified in each school to begin supporting the shift in bully behavior. Anyone involved will have access to Kelly for answers, ideas, and support. The certification process lasts 6 weeks, once a week.

Imagine the impact you can make in your community, schools, and families. Become part of the movement!

Past Lives and Your Spiritual Center

Michael Goddart, our distinguished, most recent guest is a Seeker, and has been for several past lives besides this one.

A seeker is someone who searches for truth, and their highest calling. Michael describes it as a homing device inside us, and that our soul is part and parcel of truth and love. It’s knowing your authentic path, and discovering the subconscious beliefs imbedded in your soul.

You must literally become the Truth and merge your consciousness in the ocean of the Divine.”

Michael Goddart

Michael teaches that our identity is our mind and thoughts. Seeking is about mastering our minds instead of being enslaved to them.

Human life is our most precious gift possible. When we rise to higher consciousness we become aware of our past lives.

Michael Goddart

When he sought for info about his past lives the information came quickly and in great amounts. Michael discovered he’d been an active seeker for three lives before this one. Through this process, he recovered 88 lives and learned he’d lived 4,137 human lives on two other planets besides Earth.

Michael Goddart was once…

  • An architect in post American Revolution Baltimore
  • An actor and playwright in Denmark after living life as an orphan abandoned by his mother
  • A Tibetan Secretary of Diplomacy
  • A priest in Prague
  • A monk in Slovenia
  • A Raja Yoga master in India (his happiest life)
  • An English Banker
  • A Jew who was treated horribly

We are not meant to remember our past lives, but understanding it helps us navigate the challenges of life.

Michael Goddart

Michael spoke of a cohort of seven – seven entities which he has lived several lives with, and with whom he has been in spiritual classrooms with. In various carnations these seven have been a brother, sister, mother, etc. to Michael. Since having met them in this life, all seven have acknowledged the same feeling about Michael which he has had about them.

Michael’s book, A New Now ~ Your Guide to Mastering Wisdom Daily, Achieving Equilibrium, and Empowering Your Nobler Self, teaches 33 Wisdoms, with the first being Wisdom of Humane Interaction. It teaches that every time we meet someone we should act humanely, realizing their true nature as a human on a spiritual journey.

The more interaction we have with people our longevity will lengthen. We should always be acting with kindness and truth.

Michael Goddart

Life mastery, in Michael’s view, is being positive, gathering wisdom, and becoming master of our current and past lives.

Michael spoke of:

  • Higher Mind
  • Habitual Mind
  • Lower Mind

Our Higher Mind is the part of ourselves, which is kind, giving, knowing, and wanting to be of service. The Habitual Mind is good at showing up when the garbage needs taken out, our teeth brushed, and handles the rhythm of everyday life. Lower Minds are angry and enslaved to the thoughts there.

Michael Goddart

Michael asks us to contemplate: what at this moment will bring me to my best spiritual center?

Achieving equilibrium is the dynamic balance we attain when we act from our spiritual center. We can handle anything in the best way possible, and equilibrium goes hand in hand with wisdom. Equilibrium in our spiritual center indicates a clear mind, being present, grounded, and positively minded.

Each of us has potential for God realization, but we can’t do it alone. We need a master. At any given time, there is always a saint or master on the planet which you can find…if you’re seeking one.

Michael Goddart

Michael’s book may be of greatest benefit to you if you use it as a guide for daily reflection on your spiritual journey. He offers a FREE JOURNEY JOURNAL at his website: www.Goddart.Com
