Lisa K. - Intuition On Demand

Did you ever have a “gut feeling” about something that resulted in your changing your plans or actions? In a conversation with someone, did you ever hear an inner voice tell you not to trust that person or that the person was being completely honest. Have you ever felt an attraction to a person, place or thing and was not sure why. Every one of us has experienced these intuitive flashes, sometimes acting upon them and sometimes not. What if there was a way that you could not only develop your intuition but learn to trust it personally and even professionally?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Lisa K., says there is a way! Lisa is a teacher, author and speaker specializing in intuition. She is the creator of Developing Your Intuition, where she teaches others how to control their intuition so they can use it when they want and on what they want. Lisa is considered an intuition expert and has taught people in workshops and seminars both online and in person. Her public appearances reach people around the world through guest speaking, online media and her popular radio show, “Between Heaven and Earth.” Lisa holds degrees in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University, Psycho-Biology from the State University of New York, and a PhD from the University of Metaphysical Sciences. As an author, Lisa’s work has been published in a variety of magazines including The Huffington Post, Inspire Me Today, Care2.com and our own OmTimes Magazine. She joins me to discuss her latest book, Intuition On Demand.

Byron Belitsos - Your Evolving Soul

Who are we? How did we get here? Where are we going? Can there be a future in a world that at the present appears so divided and conflicted. Is there a glimmer of hope that the human spirit or soul can evolve and connect with the spirit found in all religions and faith—love? If you think about it, these questions that seem to describe the here and now could have been asked any time in the last 3000 or more years. My guest this evening on Destination Unlimited, Byron Belitsos, says the answer to these questions and more are found within what is known as the Urantia Revelation and that yes, there is hope!

Byron is a multiple award-winning author and book publisher, and also an editor and educator. After founding Origin Press (OriginPress.org) in 1996, he has worked with numerous leading authors including Peter Russell, Ralph Metzner, Jim Marrs, Charles Tart, James O’Dea, Timothy Wyllie, Anodea Judith, and Barbara Marx Hubbard. Byron is also known as a leading expert on The Urantia Book, and has written, spoken, and given workshops widely on its teachings, including appearances on Gaiam TV and Coast-to-Coast AM Radio with George Noory. He has coauthored or edited five books about the Urantia Revelation, including The Adventure of Being Human II (2013), Healing a Broken World, and The Adventure of Being Human (2011). He joins me to discuss his new book, Your Evolving Soul: The Cosmic Spirituality of the Urantia Revelation.

Shawn Flynn - THE KITTY Who Rescued Me After I Rescued Him

Sigmund Freud said, “Time spent with cats is never wasted.” Albert Schweitzer said, “There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life, music and cats.” The French poet and philosopher, Anatole France, said, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawaken.” The mutual healing relationship between humans and their animal companions is an age old story, but my guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Shawn Flynn, tells this story anew from the perspective of a modern career professional and how his life was forever changed by a beautiful Maine Coon cat named, “Kitty.”

Shawn spent more than twenty-five years in a market-research career before he stepped away to pursue his passion for writing. He knew he wanted to explore his deep connection with cats, particularly the first cat he ever rescued. Shawn and his girlfriend, Carrie, live in Enfield, Connecticut, where he takes care of several indoor and outdoor cats. He also volunteers with the local cat rescue group, Enfield Community Cat Project, and was recently designated as the group’s marketing representative. He joins me to discuss his book, THE KITTY Who Rescued Me After I Rescued Him.

Dr. Rachel Harris - Listening to Ayahuasca

People on the seeker’s path from time immemorial have sought answers to the mysteries of life, life afterlife, our world and the universe. The mystic’s goal has been that ultimate awakening, understanding and connection….being one with everything. Many tools and methods have been used for attaining this goal including meditation, ceremonial magic and the natural pharmacopoeia that grows from our earth. Western experiments with psychedelic substances began in the 1940’s and by the time the late 60’s arrived, they were outlawed and classified as dangerous drugs. Yet evidence suggests that many of these substances, when used properly and in combination with traditional therapies can help to allay and sometimes cure depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and even addictions.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Psychotherapist Dr. Rachel Harris, has done extensive scientific and personal research into ayahuasca, a psychedelic tea used in ceremonies by indigenous peoples in the Amazon rain forest. Dr. Harris has been in private practice for 35 years. She received a National Institutes of Health New Investigator’s Award, has published more than forty scientific studies in peer-reviewed journals, and has worked as a psychological consultant to Fortune 500 companies and the United Nations. She shares her findings and personal experience with ayahuasca in the fascinating new book, Listening to Ayahuasca: New Hope for Depression, Addiction, PTSD and Anxiety.

Lisa Smartt - Words at the Threshold

Many of us have had the experience of a loved one share their thoughts as they approached transition. Some of what they share may be nostalgic, reminiscing about years gone by or practical concerning their wishes for final arrangements and unfinished business. Often though, the words shared may be quite different from the way the person communicated before approaching the end, reflecting a marked change in spirituality and an almost etheric approach to the new journey they were about to embark on.

My guest his week on Destination Unlimited, Lisa Smartt, experienced this personally with her father during the last three weeks of his life and it inspired her to establish the Final Words Project with world-renowned afterlife expert, Dr. Raymond Moody. Lisa is a linguist, educator, and poet. She co-facilitates workshops about language and consciousness with Raymond Moody at universities, hospices, and conferences and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Visit her online at http://www.finalwordsproject.org She shares this journey of discovery in her new book, Words at the Threshold: What We say As We’re Nearing Death.

Virginia Bell - Midlife is Not a Crisis

Pete Seeger’s classic song, “Turn, Turn, Turn”, based upon the first eight verses of the third chapter of the biblical Book of Ecclesiastes says….

“To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven”

How is our life affected by the energy of the turns and returns of the heavenly bodies in our solar system, the stars and beyond? How do the seasons of our life afford us the opportunity for learning, growth and wisdom? And how can our understanding of this enable us through youth, middle age and the golden years without experiencing the misnamed “midlife crisis?”

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Virginia Bell, says the secret to this is to understand the great generational cycles of our life to be better prepared for both the challenges and rewards. Virginia has been a full time astrologer since the 1990’s. She writes a horoscope column and celebrity profiles for the CBS magazine, Watch! She’s a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and has written astrology columns for magazines including TV Guide and Us Weekly. Virginia has her sun and moon in Taurus and Virgo rising…and joins us to discuss her new book, Midlife is Not a Crisis: Using Astrology to Thrive in the Second Half of Life.

Have you been told that you are too sensitive by family and friends? Do you actually feel the feelings of others, both positive and negative, as though they were your feelings? Do you experience the physical and emotional pain of others? Empathy is a quality that most humans share, but being an empath goes much deeper. It can entail the full gamut of experiencing what others experience, without filters. It can make it difficult to separate your personal feelings from what you are picking up from the outside world.

Henry Fersko-Weiss – Caring for the Dying

We live in a world where for the most part, we are welcomed into life with joyous and loving anticipation. Many of us have been born in hospitals and some have been welcomed at home with our arrival facilitated by a mid-wife or doula. As joyful and warm as our arrivals may be, how often it seems that our departure from this life is cold, sterile, sad and incomplete for those we leave behind. What if there was a doula to support us and our families when we pass in a life affirming way that liberates the spirit and brings maximum comfort to our loved ones?

Such doulas do exist and my guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Henry Fersko-Weiss, created the first End of Life Doula Program in the United States in 2003. Henry is executive director of the International End of Life Doula Association and has built many programs based upon his original model. His work has been featured in the NY Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and elsewhere. Henry is on the faculty of the Open Center’s Art of Dying Institute. He joins me this week to discuss his new book, Caring for the Dying: The Doula Approach to a Meaningful Death.
