Episode Description

There was a time when women were in power and the number 13 was sacred. We were more connected with the Earth, that is, Mother Earth. Witches were women who used their wisdom and the products of the earth--plants, herbs and flowers--to cure disease. They were respected healers. Then the energy of domination took over. Witches became feared and were systematically killed. It became dangerous to be a woman and to use your natural powers of intuition and connection with the spiritual realm. The logical mind was all that mattered. If something couldn't be proven scientifically, it couldn't be true. We began to distrust our inner wisdom, the still small voice within. We only trusted the masculine way of being in the world. The energies are shifting again--this time, to wholeness. To eliminate illness and to have world peace, we need a partnership between the divine masculine and divine feminine to balance the energies on earth. Join us Thursday to learn more about awakening to wholeness.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.

The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
