Episode Description

Let me ask you, ‘How are you holding up during this pandemic?’ How do you think you might answer that question? A lot of people have very pat answers. How are you? I'm fine, or I'm holding up in view of everything; I'm OK. Seems there's a lot of feelings that have been incredibly repressed and that somehow or other we've determined that it's not OK to admit that we are bothered or are upset about what is going on. Now we've done this on another show about “ The unspoken message that seems to be emerging is, whether you have feelings or not about this pandemic. Specifically negative reactions. As long as we are ‘fine’ , hopeful and upbeat we are in line with status quo. After all we are in this together!!! The message, since we are all in this together, then we must fall in and give the “the party line” The message we are all in this together, takes away our right to our own feelings. When we emerge from the lock down a lot of feelings will surface., like anger, sadness. Ready?

Things Worth Considering

Things Worth Considering

Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time/8 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

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.
