Things Worth Considering

Things Worth Considering

This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. One of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Connect to your intuition and explore your AHA moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. How we think, what we think, what we believe, and our attitudes define how we experience our life. The fascinating idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. How we connect to our families, our aging family members and slowly we become caregivers, not caretakers. Embracing the reality of aging, not into senior citizens but living the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not being someone’s servant. As we explore the many roads of the human journey with our guests, we will connect to each other by embracing many of the mysteries of life and there we arrive at things worth considering.

In our everyday life , we are constantly dealing with relationships. They can be romantic, with co-workers, family, friends, the cashier at the grocery store and most importantly the relationship that we have with our self. In most cases we allow old patterns, mainly unconscious ones, to dictate how we show up in these relationships. We will explore these patterns and what role we play in attracting the same type of people. We w...

How Intuitive do you consider yourself? Do you wonder sometimes why the phone rings and it’s a friend who you were just thinking about? Do you realize that sometimes when you think of an idea, and act on it, your world improves tremendously! Do you think it is fate or could it be that we are getting help from loved ones who have passed on, guardian angels, and other Angelic messengers and spirits? How do we trust the information...

Its casual name is ‘Tapping’ and its formal name is Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). In short, by Tapping on specific acupressure points a profoundly relaxing effect is produced and when you pair this with focusing your attention and exploring thoughts and beliefs, it can help shift anxiety, stress, fear, depression and limiting thought patterns. EFT is an evidence-based modality and is recognized by the College of Registered Psy...

Have you ever wondered why people shake or develop tremors after a traumatic event? Whether we are involved in say, an accident or we observe a bad accident we will possibly develop the shakes. Even receiving bad news over the phone or in an email can have the same effect. In other words we don’t have to see it, or physically experience it because even hearing traumatic news can activate this mechanism. Trauma researchers have ide...

This weekend brings to a close Pride Week in the major North American cities. It is both a celebration of rights attained, and a political event of rights denied for the 2SLGBTQI+ communities. Regardless of how you may personally identify for both gender and orientation, Pride can serve to help us take a look at the repression of sexuality and gender expression by our societies. The male and female stereotypes with their associ...

Are you aware that some of the world’s oldest religions, from Hinduism and Buddhism to the esoteric Mystery schools, inform much of what we can call 21st century Spirituality? Brought to awareness originally by Madame Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy and later by the extensive writings of Alice A. Bailey, the Seven Rays are the fundamental energies that organize and maintain all that exists on the planet. Given this concept, al...

Have you experienced what is sometimes called, a spiritual visitation - the perception that something or someone is attempting to communicate with you from beyond the normal physical world? There are those who claim to have seen apparitions of an otherworldly nature, while others have perceived clear and distinct voices that seem to come from nowhere in particular. While such encounters in waking life can be perplexing enough, the...

Or you are out on a date, it has been a while and you gradually have steered the conversation to your talking most of the evening about your ex-partner and your break-up.

We have been talking about the changes people have made while in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Changing jobs, leaving the city and moving to the small towns and rural areas. Work from home has opened up a lot of eyes to the possibilities of life changes that may be possible. This episode we are talking to someone who decided to use the lock down time and pursue a passion of hers and move towards turning her studies into a car...

As we approach the eventual stabilization of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we dare not say the end, we all are being presented with possibilities that many, if not most people, may not be considering. For the majority, we have, perhaps this only one-time in our lifetime opportunity to completely change our life. For many, if they had a job or were able to stay employed during the pandemic, off-site at home office became the norm. Is this...

What is a new normal? What will it look like? Is our imposed lock down a new normal? It may be new but not normal. Plodding along we appear to be inching our way to the downward slope of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many are still in some sort of lock down and we are all in anticipation, that just maybe we will be able to burst out of our imposed isolation and live life differently than the last year and a half. The reference to a new no...

We all know that shopping for food, especially fresh produce, at our local supermarkets does not yield us with the highest quality edibles. In most instances the food has been shipped to us from the far corners of the planet but from the moment they were picked their nutritional value begins to decline. Now imagine that our planetary food supply was to somehow be jeopardized, and the things we normally buy become scarcer. How could...

Two weeks ago, Jennifer Drummond was on the show and after one session of Racial Therapy, we asked her if we could go on to session #2 of therapy. More than happy to help us keep this very important subject out there and being discussed. We all like to believe we are not racist, but it is so very difficult to escape what we heard and saw while growing up. Our language, our humour, our unconscious sense of privilege are all markers ...

Imagine discovering a significant but previously unknown connection between geometry and harmonics. Where geometric shapes and forms provide the information needed to build numerically perfect major chords, the most melodic form of music. By extrapolation, this groundbreaking research offers a certain type of proof that our geometric universe is a symphonic system functioning in literal harmony with itself. It also takes us back t...

As much as most of us are so over it, the Covid-19 Pandemic has been instrumental in bringing to the surface issues in our world that would best have been dealt with a couple hundred years ago. The treatment of the senior most members of our society living in long term care facilities, make up almost two-thirds of the deaths in Canada. Arising with our treatment of the aged, is a mounting awareness of systemic racism throughout all...

Eating well and eating properly can be an exercise in futility at times. We have all read the articles, maybe taken a course or two and learned what is good for us, and what foods to eat to get the good stuff. Problem: Lots of the foods suggested by the experts, in order for us to be at optimal physical health, we may not like. Not all people like the same foods and definitely not all food suggested by nutritionists is likeable. ...

No one has ever disagreed, there are no studies that contradict the fact that humans are hard wired to connect. Hard wired to connect to each other, but also our pets, like cats and dogs and horses. A child begins to cry when the mother leaves the room and stops upon her return. If we are Hard Wired to connect then why do so many people have such difficulties in forming and maintaining satisfying relationships. Not just marriage bu...

Throughout our journey, our minds have been instilled with ideas of finding the right teacher, guru, rabbi or priest who knew the answers to all of our questions. As we gained knowledge, perhaps we became such a teacher. An endless cycling of archetypal learning, looking outward toward the horizon for an answer to a yet unspoken question. Can we risk stopping that outward gaze? Will we put the same trust invested in others as our g...

We all ponder, some even struggle, for just an inkling, of what could possibly be our purpose? What if it isn’t a straight line to such awareness? Sometimes we travel along only to find a detour that takes us to one place and circles us back around to rejoin from our point of detour. Sounds confusing? Possibly, but who said it would be a straight-line? Meet Maylynn Quan, born in Trinidad and Tobago, and now Canadian-based, as sh...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
