    We give of ourselves in this action and share a bit of our hearts. It is also very gratifying to us and inspiring to others. This is what keeps us together as a community.

  • Slow Down with Jan Lundy

    Apr 14, 2014 | 27 min
    Today’s tool may seem a bit against the grain to the insane lifestyle pace we keep these days. “Slow Down” is our tool today and it is exactly what we need in this day and time. Jan Lundy brings this tool to us today and explains how in terms of our total well being, going faster merely serves to scramble us inside and out. Always going for more adds to our stress level. We have more and more choices these days and the changes in technology designed to make our lives easier are happening so fast that they are becoming stressors in our lives instead of the assistance they are meant to be. All of this adds up to lack of focus and poor mental clarity. This pace and need for more ambition has tu...

    Mar 24, 2014 | 28 min

  • Live Worry Free with Jan Lundy

    Mar 3, 2014 | 27 min
    There is a great quote running around social media that says, "Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but takes you nowhere." That of course is best case scenario and determined by your ability to let go of worry and get back to positive beliefs. Prolonged worry does take you places; places you would rather not go. Since your beliefs create your reality and the law of attraction is at work, where does worry take you? Instead of being weighed down by worry, let go of it and be free. Jan Lundy joins us to discuss worry and how to "Live Worry Free" on this edition of Life's Tool Box on Empower Radio.

  • Let Go and Receive

    Feb 3, 2014 | 27 min
    Many of us spend so much time collecting and gathering things, money, experiences and even thoughts and beliefs that we quickly run out of room for more. Soon we find ourselves spending energy and time just hanging on to it all. What used to be the joke, he who dies with the most wins, is no longer just a joke. Many of us have somehow accepted it as our mission. The truth is, until we let go of the things that no longer serve us, we create congestion and blockages in our lives. This is never more true than in our thoughts and beliefs. We cling to old beliefs even when they no longer serve our highest good and wonder why life is so hard. We hold on to limiting thoughts and cannot figure out w...

  • Mindful Holiday Secrets (Part Two) with Jan Lundy

We tend to want to make everything perfect during the holidays. We want to find the perfect gift, prepare the perfect meal, have the perfect decorations and the list goes on and on.
