The Light Inside

The Light Inside

Lingering just below the surface of our conscious minds are patterns of thought, feelings, emotions and motivations. We aren't immediately aware of them, but they wield a powerful influence over how we behave and react to events in our everyday lives. Our program helps reveal the unconscious patterns that drive our human behavior, shape our choices and direct our relationships; providing instead, essential programming for effective patterns of behavior and belief.

If you joined us last week, you learned how our biases influence so much of our reality. Shaping and moving how we each see things.We also talked a bit about that great classic movie - the Wizard of Oz.

The Wizard of Oz is a fantastic movie that tells an allegorical story with many different layers and symbolism. Whether intentional or not - It was a great reminder that everything I need I already have if I only look within.

We lean in today, looking ay what it means to be neurodivergant - and exploring how both as a community and a society - we embrace these beautiful differences in our brains.

As we develop new paradigms - this task often requires a new language addressing it - this case can certainly be made as we approach the neurodiversity paradigm.

We do this, perhaps, by seeking to understand the entire 'picture' of the neurodiverse expe...

Change.

Its perhaps the one thing in life with any certainty. Inevitable in its being, and as a result, evolution and growth become possible. As human being, we often get stuck in our habits- the patterns of our belief and being.

Like moss on a stone, weighing us down. After two years of podcasting- we’ve been seeing and doing things a certain way. But now, thats about to change- and for the better.

Its time.

It’s not easy to know how we come across to others, especially when we’re meeting people for the first time.

Finding a commonality in others we perceive to be vastly unlike us can often become the great divide which separates us from forming more authentic and genuine bonds. Our first impressions of someone can shape how we perceive them. This forms every interaction we have with them as the relationship moves forward.

It's oft...

Human nature.

Its the one constant throughout our being.  Within our nature, the desire to seek connection with others.

Our relationships enriching our sense of aliveness.

It is for this reason, we seek loving, supporting, and nurturing bonds with each other. In fact, according to social psychologist Roy Baumeister, the ‘need to belong’ is one of the main forces that drives us as individuals. After all, belonging is a crucial eleme...

“Love is the name of our pursuit of wholeness. For our desire to be complete. “

The greatest of beauty- organic wholeness. The wholeness of life.

Your truth. My Truth. 

Just Who’s truth is it- getting in the way?

And is there any way, we can see our way through it- together.

It truly is curiously amazing what can happen when we step outside of our own ‘business” and embrace others. As we willing accept the space between us with genuine and authentic openness. To simply allow what will be- to be.

This is where we travel today, in this free-spirited exploration of our relation...

That often overrated rock of protection each of us frequently finds ourselves hiding under.

Life’s seemingly endless challenges, often placing one in line with a sense of jadedness, yet hope lies in our ability to sense the world with awe and wonder.

Our guest today reminds us of that.

As a former set-designer on the legendary and formidable long-running children show, Captain Kangaroo, our conversation with self-proclaimed...

Comparison.

It’s the thief of self-awareness, and as a result of our own limiting biases, the idea of embracing change can often be hard to swallow.


Learning how to become more self-aware is an early step in the creative evolution of your life.


Often, our own expectations and judgements casting a shadow over the perception of the self, casting a cloud on our ability to form an effective sense of self-acceptance.

Our value is the ...

Cynicism.

It often clouds one’s ability to remain open to the possibilities in life, as one observes some of the hardest and most trying times,

What if, instead of embracing cynicism, one gratefully remains open to bounty of lessons and blessings waiting to be uncovered within the journey?

One of the greatest gifts one can shine on themselves is the gift of perpetual learning. When we expand as individuals, we empower ourselves to rise to our fullest potential.

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
