We’ve talked many times on the Authentic Living show about duality and it’s insistence that we are separate from the divine and from each other and all things. Well today we are going to be talking about how to reunite consciousness with soul. Susann Taylor Shier is our guest today, and she’s written a book called “Soul Reunion: The Return Home from Separation,” in which she thoroughly explains both the soul-level disconnection and the path to reconnection between consciousness and the largely unconscious soul. Susann presents Soul Mastery, Soul Radiance, and Soul Reunion workshops, book events, trainings and teleclasses. She’s been featured on numerous TV and radio shows, and she works internationally as a psychotherapist and intuitive counselor both in person and by telephone. If you are one of those people who longs to bridge the psychic gap of duality, you do not want to miss this show.
You know we have many teachers and gurus out there telling us that nothing is impossible. But what do we really believe about that? Sometimes it turns out that when we are believing really hard—we are just doing what has come to be known as magical thinking. Sometimes when we are believing really hard, we’re really just bargaining: IF I believe this, THEN I won’t have to look at that. And sometimes when we are believing really hard, we’re just avoiding the essential growth of looking difficulty right in the face. So, really now, what is actually possible for a human being to do? And how do we know the difference between bargaining, magical thinking, avoidance and real belief? Well this show is going to provide answers for some of those fundamental questions. Right here at the beginning of the New Year, we might need some clarity about where to put our energy. Don’t miss this one. You’re going to need it soon.

As we’ve tried to implement the law of attraction and attract and manifest all of our dreams, we’ve run into some road blocks that have forced us to question ourselves. Many are advising that we look to the shadow—or the unconscious—to tell us how we are sabotaging ourselves. But the shadow holds far more within it than the darkness about which we typically hear. In fact, for most of us, the shadow also holds within it, the deepest essence of our truest nature. It is this nature toward which the law of attraction is actually driving us. Tune into this show to learn how the law of attraction really works in your life.
Are you feeling emotionally and physically exhausted and cynical? Burnout looks a lot like depression, but it’s not a biological bogeyman that medication or simple stress management can cure. It’s a disorder of hope and will that sucks the life out of competent, idealistic, hardworking people like you; and it will be an ongoing challenge for you to take your power back!Dr. Joan Borysenko is here for the fourth time and this time to talk about her latest book, “Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive.” Her view of burn out is a timely and groundbreaking work that straddles psychology, biology and soul. Of course, we know from previous episodes with Joan, that she offers a very warm and personal approach to whatever she does and this book and this discussion will be no exception, as she believes it is her life’s purpose to weave together psychology, biology and spirituality in a credible and accessible way.
I was raised in Kentucky and also lived in Atlanta. I can’t help but jump into those long, multi-and-extra syllabled words that the American South is so good at creating. It’s funny, but the slower you go, the more your are in the present.
Now, here’s what I learned living in Atlanta, my favorite phrase: “Bless his/or her little old heart.” And when you hear that phase, here’s what you do. Who ever they are talking about they are really saying, “Step away from that person, slowly step back three steps and sneak away”.
For me, those people that I “bless” and sneak away are the people who live and want to be stuck in their drama. Those people who are always going on and on about their lives and negative, negative, negative. They are forever stuck and become a product of their past, never being present and moving forward.
Be honest – do you see yourself, however slightly, in that description of the ‘blessed little old heart’? We’ve all played the victim at some point in our lives. The difference is did you learn and grow from it or are you still stuck?
Do you need negativity an drama to feel alive? Do you have memories you want to forget, but keep haunting you? This is a major learning to address.
My guest on this show, originally aired 5/12/2011 is John Schuster, author of “The Power of Your Past: The Art of Recalling, Reclaiming and Recasting”. Today’s conversation will be with John about using our ‘individual set of yesterdays’ well. He describes it as the art of recalling, reclaiming and recasting…a way to consider new ways to grow. This show will help you discover how to use your pasts creatively, and befriend for its wisdom instead of wanting to forget it. Visit www.johnpschuster.com.

In peace & health,
Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky my young life consistent of church, more church and even more church. Faithfully, every week. When I was older and ended up living in Miami, my world suddenly expanded past the teaching of the Christian pulpit. On that journey, two books helped change the course of the my life. One was “Many Masters, Many Lives” by Brian Weiss and the other by this week’s honored radio show guest, world-famous spiritual physician Bernie Siegel’s “Love, Medicine and Miracles”.
The book teaches to recognize and honor the miracles that happen everyday in our lives if our lives are based in love, which is to me the base of all our religions and journeys.
Each one of us is valuable; we came into this life willing to take on a journey that be painful, loving, horrific and fabulous. All from the point of we are doing the best we can from where we came from. And Bernie shares with us how to be our own healers.
Bernie’s books make sense for my analytical mind and my heart.
In this radio show, originally aired 5/5/2011, Bernie and I discuss prescriptions for living to help people become aware of their own truths. Rather than wait for a personal disaster, Bernie’s stories and insights help people fix their lives before they are broken. Join us as I ask him his take on the importance of using intuition and owning your natural talent.
In peace and health,
No two fingerprints are alike and it’s just as true that no two voices are alike.
From the earliest text of all the world religions there is reference to the voice. Such as “in the beginning” there was the word.and then creation happened Vibrations occurs when energies are combined and then form develops. Think of the first time you spoke of a great idea , it all started as the “word” got out. Your unique voice was heard. Our voice is our vibration of uniqueness.
Believe me, the real YOU shows in your tone (any mother of teenagers knows this is true!)
How important is the tone of your voice? The tone of your voice delivers the vibration of you.

In peace & love,
Once upon a time Therapy and Religion were considered to be separate compartments of the human experience. But now, more and more, we are beginning to see a mixing and blending of religion/spirituality and therapy. Our guest this week has much to share with us about this phenomenon particularly as it relates to two things: 1) the power of relationship and 2) psychoanalysis and Buddhism. Pilar Jennings, PhD is the author of Mixing Minds: The Power of Relationship in Psychoanalysis and Buddhism. Obviously relationship is at the center of both the practice of religion and the practice of therapy. But how do we engage both practices in a therapeutic setting without reducing either to the terms of the other? Can we legitimately explore both in the therapeutic setting trusting that neither will be reduced to the terms of the other? Do you ever wonder if your psychological issues are really spiritual or vice versa? Tune in, you might just walk away with your answer.
