I feel especially privileged to have been interviewed by Gregory Berg on his show, Life on Purpose. Why? Because he has interviewed well-known people in the field of consciousness like Dr. Bernie Siegel, who has worked hand and hand with one of my favorite writer, teachers, Caroline Myss. I credit Caroline numerous times in my book (yes, it’s pronounced Mace). About the Book – link Greg has also interviewed Brene Brown, a well-known scholar, author and speaker who is making great progress assisting others in breaking out of shame. Yeah, I’m shamelessly name dropping. Link to Episode 10 – Life on Purpose with ME!
In all honest integrity, I have not studied all the work by Caroline, Bernie or Brene. My life has been more like Siddhartha, the character and title from the book by Hermann Hesse written back in 1922. What I mean by that is that I’ve not followed any one teacher for an extended or intensive period of time. I also know that my teacher and mentor Keith Varnum thedream.com would agree with the analogy, and laugh playfully at my saying this. He is the one who taught me to follow my heart, which has led me to teach heart-centered integrated consciousness. In true Sagittarian form, I glean information from many sources and by channeling divine wisdom.
I get really excited when I have a thought or write about something, and then I hear someone popular in the field of mind, body, spirit integration saying something similar. For example, in Bernie Siegel’s Life on Purpose interview, he stated something to the effect that on the other side of love was not hate, but indifference and abuse. Whoa! That one really hit home, but rather than feeling the old pain from my own experience with abuse and subsequent indifference, I was excited to know that someone agreed with me. Or was it I agreed with him? Whatever!
It shows that all of us can over-come our painful personal experiences through consciousness.
Though I have made great progress, in over-coming abuse, my readers know I will always admit to my vulnerable, human side. If I heard some of their messages before I could put my own ponderance and spin on them, I might dismiss my own feelings. Though, somehow, I realize in hearing Bernie Siegel’s words, I now know indifference is what has caused me to dismiss myself. Maybe that’s why the universe is presenting things to me in the order it is, so that I can overcome the remaining fragmented blocks which I have from being dismissed. In turn I can encourage others on a deeper level, not to dismiss themselves. I can support others, because I’ve been through it.
There is a perspective change. Now, dismissed comes more a happy form, wanting to exclaim, YES! We are ALL part of the progress in over-coming abuse! No longer will we allow ourselves to be dismissed by those who are indifferent to abuse.
I hope you will all stick around for the ride, as we evolve more and more out of the darkness of shame, blame, guilt, denial, anger, sadness, and judgment, and into the light of peace, fulfillment, freedom, joy and love. We can all be Enchanted Champions.
It truly is an honor to feel like I am finally making headway towards what I know to be my true purpose; helping victims, survivors and even warriors who are wanting to find a new “Heart’s Horizon.” Which leads me to the song for this post –Heart’s Horizon by Al Jarreau. Heart’s Horizon – Al Jarreau A great song to remind us that each day is a new day when you live, LIFE ON PURPOSE. Life On Purpose – Home
