If you have not encountered Chuang Tzu before, prepare yourself for a treat. He was the sage who stood apart from all others in Chinese history, and was well known for his deep understanding and sense of humor. When Tzu lived twenty-four hundred years ago, he taught his students about “carefree wandering”–the path of moving through life with a free and happy heart, regardless of how turbulent the journey might be.Celebrated for their accessible, down-to-earth examples, Chuang Tzu’s teachings demonstrate that the Tao is everywhere, not just in holy places or in meditation.

Seven Cups of Consciousness: Change Your Life by Connecting to the Higher Realms with Aleya Dao

Aired Tuesday, 10 November 2015, 11:00 AM ET

Seven Cups of Consciousness offers step-by-step practical guidance for reaching beyond one’s limited physical experience and energetically opening to the guidance and support of multidimensional resources.

Her book outlines specific processes built around “cups of consciousness” that are designed to give readers access to the energetic realm and the innumerable resources it contains. “The physical realm is only one of many. You are a multidimensional being expressing yourself in multiple dimensions,” writes Aleya. “You are never alone. Using your angelic resources can assist you in enormous ways.”

Just as a cup of coffee or tea helps you wake up in the morning, Aleya promises readers that sipping from the “cups of consciousness” she offers will help them awaken to higher levels of consciousness and energetic support:

* First Cup – You Live in a Multidimensional Reality
* Second Cup – You Are Never Alone
* Third Cup – You Can Change Your Inner World
* Fourth Cup – Your Challenges Can Help You Grow
* Fifth Cup – Your Body Is a Nature Spirit
* Sixth Cup – You Have Soul’s Wisdom
* Seventh Cup – You Are Perfect

Aleya has created energetic practices designed to help readers release old patterns and gain access to a higher consciousness for each of the seven cups. Links to eleven powerful downloadable audio meditations that guide readers through these processes are also included.

Aleya will advise your listeners on how to:

* Become acquainted with your own River of Light, adjacent to the front of your spinal cord
* Dialogue with your Team to resolve old “stuff” that keeps you mired in lack, limitation, real world problems and broken romances
* Communicate with your Body Deva, the nature spirit that is embodied as your physical self
* Begin living a multidimensional life, so that you solve problems from a vantage point that you cannot by living a 2D existence
* Enable your Higher Self, Team and Body Diva to support you in living a life that is fully expressed with joy, fulfillment, purpose, self-love and even romance!

“The key lies in your ability to focus on your inner world, using your imagination and intent as a way to connect to other dimensions,” writes Aleya. “You will learn that your real power comes from within and from beyond. As you develop these tools, your consciousness will evolve, your challenges will transform, and a deep inner peace and empowerment will bloom.”

About the Guest Aleya Dao

Aleya Dao was a successful alternative health practitioner undergoing a sound healing session herself when she had one of those extraordinary ascents into an entirely expanded level of cosmic consciousness. And what she discovered in those few minutes and the days and years afterward, was how ready her Higher Self, her Body Deva and an array of personal multidimensional Team members were to help her overcome her own perceived shortcomings, destructive habits and life’s speedbumps. The woman she is today is not the woman she was then–and she gives full credit to the Higher Realms for helping her evolve to the happy and fulfilled trailblazing spiritual teacher, healer and author that she has become.

In her astonishing and powerful book, Seven Cups of Consciousness: Change Your Life by Connecting to the Higher Realms (New World Library, September 15, 2015),Aleya offers a direct manual on how to engage with the higher dimensions to advance your own evolution–to create a life filled with happiness and purpose, always connected with a divine and perfect aspect of yourself, protected and guided by a loving angelic presence. She shows how this kind of life becomes possible when we learn to consciously connect at the spiritual level with higher dimensions.

“When you explore your inner realms, along with the higher dimensions, your life will change in amazing ways,” writes Aleya, a sound healer, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, acupuncturist and spiritual guide for 20 years in the Southwest. She practiced in Telluride, CO, before moving to Santa Barbara, CA where she currently serves an international clientele. “The basic idea is that all your work is done at a level higher than your physical reality. There are aspects of you that exist in higher dimensions, at the spiritual level. I call these parts of you your energy self or your Higher Self.”

From Chaos to Clarity with Alex Bratty

Who amongst us hasn’t felt stuck at one time or another? Maybe you’re stuck right now! We all know that feeling of not knowing what to do next, or how to break out of the same old patterns of behavior, or listening to all that negative chatter that tells us we’re not enough. As Alex puts it, when this happens, we keep ourselves running in place, playing small and safe.

Help is on the way! Like having a personal coach encouraging you, urging you gently and specifically, From Chaos to Clarity, an #1 bestseller, gives you the tools to take back control of your life, to stop struggling and to focus on how to create a life you truly want, rather than one you think you should want.

Alex knows that empty feeling. She wasn’t fulfilling her life’s purpose and she felt trapped in a life that was like a hamster wheel she couldn’t get off. In her quest to find the missing piece, she embarked on a personal development journey that helped her uncover the true essence of what she wanted: to help people and to be of service in a way that would contribute positively to the world. In the book, Alex shares her own struggle with being stuck and how she moved from a life that felt unfulfilled, constricted, and frustrated to one that is expansive and filled with love, abundance, and joy.

From Chaos to Clarity provides a step-by-step guide for clearing the gunk from your path and getting you moving with alacrity to the REAL life awaiting. Alex offers examples, charts to fill out and questions to ponder that lead you to the answers you may not have been able to discover on your own. Along the way, you will learn:

* To understand what’s really keeping you stuck (not always what it appears)
* To reprogram your mind to dash those limiting and long-held beliefs about yourself and others
* To connect with your true self and recognize you already have the answers to your burning questions
* To release the past once and for all
* To embrace the present and the future whilst being open to all possibilities
* To clear your mind so you can find space and time to create
* To identify what you really want, your calling, and your higher purpose

About the Guest Alex Bratty

Alex Bratty was a superstar in the public-opinion polling field. One of the youngest partners ever in a prestigious Washington research firm, her job was to listen to people and find out what they think and how they feel. She tuned into their emotional responses to get deeply in touch with their “whys” in life.

The irony is that during the 15 years she was rising to the very top of her field, she wasn’t listening to her own inner voice to discover her true emotions, to pay attention to her deepest desires and to understand why she was so miserably stuck in her own life!

Through tremendous trial and error, she finally found her way. And now she’s giving other people the shortcut–through her remarkable book From Chaos to Clarity: Getting Unstuck & Creating a Life You Love – the essential quick-start guide to getting your life back on track.

“Choices” with Nancy Byrne

“Choices” with Nancy Byrne

October 6, 2015

Aired Tuesday, 6 October 2015, 11:00 AM ET

Answers you have been seeking are contained within the pages of a new book by author Nancy Byrne called “Choices” (published by Balboa Press). The book itself is a catalyst for personal growth and change. It is written in a refreshingly simplistic and direct manner while utilizing humor and personal anecdotes to deliver a message of encouragement, empowerment, and self-renewal, not only for yourself but for the world you live in.

“This book will touch the reader’s soul,” Byrne says. “Anyone who has survived a less than optimal childhood, an abusive relationship or who just experiences a lack of confidence will reap tremendous benefits from this book when they realize they have choices available to them in shaping the course of their lives.”

In her book, Byrne helps readers to transcend the limits of common thought, remember who they are and choose to be that person again. She guides readers in listening to the guidance from their souls, rather than the people around them.

About the Author Nancy Byrne

Nancy Byrne is the author of the new book, “Choices”. Byrne majored in psychology at the University of Colorado Denver for both graduate and undergraduate. She has worked for an adolescent psychiatric treatment hospital, a women-in-need-of-group-support program, a rape crisis center, a major police department as director of a victim services unit and several high risk shelters for adolescents. Byrne states, “It is my soul’s desire to ‘give back’ to the Universe and to serve by assisting others on their life’s journey.” More information is available at:

Opening Your Heart to Love

Opening Your Heart to Love

Aired Tuesday, 29 September 2015, 11:00 AM ET

There are truly two ways to view anything – through the eyes of love or through the eyes of fear. Fear comprises doubt, worry, insecurities, feelings of lack and less than. Fear resides in the lower energies, which is our human-ness or ego. Love comes from the heart and is a higher vibration. Shelly Wilson views these choices and have labeled them – TEAM LOVE and TEAM FEAR. When posing this concept to her friends and colleagues, unanimous opinions vote to be included on TEAM LOVE. During discussions, it was also recognized that we do have moments of fear and doubt as well as the other emotions, but we aren’t a regular on that team. With that said, which team are you on?

Being an active participant of TEAM LOVE begins with loving you and opening your heart to love. In doing so, you will discover your greatest gift of all – the deep connection to your Higher Self and inner knowingness.

Finding Hope in Dire Times: Ocean Country by Liz Cunningham

Aired Tuesday, 22 September 2015, 11:00 AM ET

One Woman’s Voyage from Peril to Hope in Her Quest to Save the Seas – Liz Cunningham shows us how people around the world are practicing “hope in action” and why it’s time for all of us to join them. After Liz Cunningham was nearly swallowed by a rogue wave in a kayaking accident in which she was temporarily paralyzed, she was left with a sense of despair and alienation from the waters that she had always turned for solace and healing.

As she recovered physically, Cunningham vowed that she would reconnect with the ocean and recover hope – hope for herself and for the planet’s ailing waters. Cunningham shares her two-year global journey to discover how communities and individuals are fighting to save the marine world that every living being depends on and how they are creating hope through action in dire times.

Cunningham shows us how people throughout the world are beginning to see that we can have hope, that we must act, and – most importantly – that the two are interdependent.

OCEAN COUNTRY is an adventure story, a call to action, and a poetic meditation on the state of the seas – but most of all – it is a story of finding true hope in the midst of one of the greatest crises to face humankind.

Twenty-one percent of royalties will be given to the New England Aquarium’s Marine Conservation Action Fund (MCAF), which aims to protect and promote ocean biodiversity through funding of small-scale, time-sensitive, community-based programs. This amount was chosen to highlight the percentage of oxygen in each breath we take and that the fact that over one half of that oxygen comes from marine plants and algae in the ocean.

About Guest Liz Cunningham

LIZ CUNNINGHAM is the author of Talking Politics: Choosing the President in the Television Age (Praeger), which features frank and probing oral-history interviews with top television journalists such as Tom Brokaw, Larry King, and Robin MacNeil.
