Episode 19: Emotions, Impulse or Intuition – Which is it?

(Released May 5, 2016)

In episode 19, Jim 1537 and his wife, Meremysic, discuss the topic of intuition, how we recognize it and how we separate an intuitive feeling from our own emotions. This is one of our most frequently asked questions. As each of us begins to open up and work with the intuitive side of our natures, we find ourselves needing to be able to separate the responses of higher mind from our own feelings and emotions.

In this episode:

  • What is intuition?
  • Maximum and aphorisms: cultural acknowledgments of intuition
  • Insights, warnings, guidance and options
  • intuition is part of our divine nature
  • Intuitive flashes
  • Ego, emotions and our intuition
  • Confirmation, validation and attachment
  • Karma and intuition
  • And much, much more.

As spiritual people, we are told to trust our intuition.  But how do our own desires and attachments color our intuitive perceptions? Being able to tell the difference between our own feelings and the intuitive guidance we receive is critical to using this gift to its fullest potential.

Episode 17 – Celebrating You: Acknowledging the Joy of Being

(Released January 2, 2016)

In episode 17, we discuss the tradition of change and New Year’s resolutions from both the secular and the spiritual perspective. While society pressures us to make resolutions and changes solely based on the calendar date, that approach fails to take into account our own individual cycles,  karma and the fact that we may be exactly where we are supposed to be at this moment in our lives.

In this episode:

  • The spiritual origins behind New Year’s resolutions
  • Traditions of reflection, introspection and change
  • Is this a time NOT to make a change?
  • Blame and the self-help culture
  • Internal versus external standards
  • Failure and self esteem
  • Much, much more….

Society inundates us with the message that we need to use the beginning of the year to make the changes in order to become the person we are meant to be: Lose weight, follow your dream and  become more productive. But what if we aren’t prepared to make and follow through on those kinds of changes? And how do we make any kind of profound, long-lasting change if we do not accept and celebrate ourselves for who we already are?

Episode 16: Making the Connection: Our Need For Belonging

(Released December 8, 2015)

In episode 16, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, discuss the spiritual aspect of connection and belonging.  As spiritual beings, we instinctively understand the need for oneness and connection. This is an aspect of our spirituality that most religions address. But, realizing that sense of connection and belonging while in a physical body AND dealing with our karmic lessons at the same time complicates the issue. In fact, it affects every relationship and every experience we have throughout our physical journey.

In this episode:

  • Our spiritual need for connection and belonging
  • The family: connections and expectations
  • Our first lessons
  • Rebellion and our true essence
  • Making and breaking connections
  • Rejection and our sense of belonging
  • Much, much more….

Throughout our lives, we struggle with balancing our individuality with our need for connection. Whether it is the first connection map we form with our family and caregivers, the relationship that we feel completes us or the sense of rejection and fear that isolates us, connection and belonging are issues that speak to the core of our spiritual being.

Thanksgiving Episode Reprise

When we first started the podcast back in 2013,  we did a special episode called Thanksgiving – A Time for Gratitude. That episode speaks to the power of the timeless quality of giving thanks and expressing gratitude. It is as relevant today in 2015 as it was when we recorded it.

In this episode, we talk about the importance of gratitude, what gratitude is and how it changes our perception of the world around us. We discuss the concept of practicing the “attitude of gratitude” and the tremendous benefits that come from the practice. We also give tips and tools that can be helpful during the holiday season.

You can listen to the podcast here.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Episode 15: Our Desire for Control

(Released October 31, 2015)

In episode 15, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, discuss the spiritual aspect of control. From a spiritual perspective, we usually see control presented as either something we surrender (such as to the will of God) or as something we harness for our own desires (as in the Law of Attraction). In reality, it is a topic with much more subtlety than one might first suppose.

Join us as we discuss the role this issues plays in our journey of transformation.

In this episode:

  • Trying to gain control of our lives
  • People who refuse to take control
  • Fear of losing control
  • Asking why and understanding as a form of control
  • Control as a survival mechanism
  • Past life connections
  • and much, much more!

Is control a good thing or a bad thing? Is it something we should strive for or avoid? How much control is it even possible to have in our lives? Control is an issue that all of us face in our journey. In this podcast, we examine the highly nuanced and complex aspects of control and how they apply to each of us.  Learn some of the factors that affect this subject such as past lives, our egos and our individual lessons.

Episode 14: I Didn’t See That Coming: Choices, Curveballs and Consequences

(Released September 30, 2015)

In episode 14, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, discuss situations and events which, like a curve ball, can throw our lives totally off track.  How do we process those events?  Are they random? Is there a deeper meaning that we don’t understand? Do they happen for a reason? Why didn’t we see these things coming?

In this episode:

  • Asking and processing why
  • Decisions and consequences
  • How other people’s choices and decisions affect us
  • Hidden meanings behind events
  • Past lives and karma
  • The truth about predestination
  • The role of intuition and psychics
  • And much, much, more.

Unexpected events can challenge our sense of confidence, identity, our view of the world and sometimes, the actual reason for life’s purpose. Understanding the many forces behind unexpected events provides us with a comprehensive understanding of why things happen in the way they do, our role in the process, as well as the deeper spiritual significance of the various passages we happen to find ourselves in.

Episode 13: Finding Spiritual Growth in Unexpected ways

(Released August 31, 2015)

In episode 13, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, discuss expectations about what kinds of circumstances and situations lend themselves to growing spiritually. And, surprisingly, the answers may not be what you think. They also discuss the steps available to help trigger, maximize and facilitate growth on the spiritual journey.

  • How relationships lead to growth
  • The lessons involved in difficult circumstances and events
  • Individual lessons and how they manifest in our journey.
  • Lessons of patience, tolerance and self esteem
  • Addiction: A Case study
  • and much, much more….

Those who are trying to lead a spiritual life place a great deal of emphasis on how we consciously cultivate our spirituality. Usually, we tend to think in terms of actions that we consider to be directly spiritual like yoga and mind-body integration, meditation, etc. In reality, that is only one of the ways we further our spiritual growth. By understanding the way that spiritual lessons and growth opportunities manifest in our life on a multitude of levels, we are able to maximize the integration of both our physical and spiritual lives.

Episode 12: Wishes, Wants, Needs and the Importance of our Desires

(Released July 31, 2015)

In episode 12, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, explain the metaphysical meaning behind the concepts wishes, wants and needs. They also discuss the important role desire plays in how we manifest and ultimately, transform our lives.

In this episode:

  • Defining the difference between a wish, a want, and a need.
  • Understanding our true desires.
  • Applying these concepts to emotions, relationships and spiritual goals.
  • The effects of confusion.
  • Dark desire versus positive desire.
  • Affirmations versus desire: Which one wins?
  • Aligning our desires with our highest good.
  • And much, much more….

Anyone who has studied the Law of Attraction understands that desire in the cornerstone for manifestation. But for many of us, what we are thinking is often not the same thing as what we are desiring, and therefore, manifesting. By understanding what we are thinking and correctly assessing and working with those thoughts and feelings, we can empower our conscious mind and minimize self-defeating behaviors.

Episode 11: Making Sense of Your Emotions

In this episode, Jim1537 and his wife, Meremystic, talk about how to make sense of your emotions and how they dramatically impact your spiritual journey.

In this episode:

  • The human struggle with emotions
  • The tendency to take our emotions too seriously
  • The relationship between emotional intensity and reality
  • The connection between emotions and karma
  • Viewing our emotions as positive or negative
  • Separating intuition and emotion
  • Understanding our emotional tape loops
  • And much, much, more….

For all of us, to be human means to struggle with emotions.  In fact, much of our sense of self-perception and identity is based on our emotions. Examining the interplay between how our emotions and our thoughts tie into our karma and our overall spiritual evolution helps us master those emotions, make better choices and ultimately, foster a perspective of non-attachment.
