Dr. Clare R. Johnson – Mindful Dreaming

In 1975, Justin Hayward and John Lodge of the Moody Blues created an album together called “Blue Jays.” One of the featured songs written by Hayward was entitled, “I Dreamed Last Night.” Part of the lyric read,

“Well I dreamed last night
You were calling, calling my name
You were locked inside of your secrets
Calling my name
And you told me, lost, was the key
And you told me, how you long to be free
That you don’t know how
Oh, let me show you now”

How do dreams shape our lives? What do they tell us about what has been and what we aspire to? Is there a way of “mindfully” dreaming to heal the past, clarify the present and manifest the future?

My quest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Clare R. Johnson, says there is. Clare is the leading expert on lucid dreaming. She has a PhD from the University of Leeds on using lucid dreams as a creative tool which was the first doctoral work in the world to explore this topic. A lucid dreamer herself, she is the board director of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. She regularly gives talks and leads workshops about dreaming. Her website is deepluciddreaming.com and she joins me this week to discuss her just released book, Mindful Dreaming: Harness the Power of Lucid Dreaming for Happiness, Health and Positive Change.

Diana Butler Bass – Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks

As a boy growing up in the fifties and sixties, my family stressed the importance of gratitude. My siblings and I were taught to be truly grateful for everything in our lives. My father took ill when we were very young and we did not have an easy life, but our gratitude for what we did have diminished any sense of lack or want. This same gratitude was shared by almost everyone around us.

In today’s stress filled and divided world, gratitude seems to be put aside and in some instances, forgotten. How important is it for each of us to look at our lives and feel and express genuine gratitude, both personally and as citizens of our country.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, cultural observer and theologian Diana Butler Bass says that “gratitude is central to both our personal and political lives” and “it may be the single most important spiritual practice we can engage in times of turmoil and conflict.”

Diana is the author of ten books on American religion, politics and culture and comments widely in the media about faith and public life. She holds a PhD in religious studies from Duke University, has taught at the college and graduate level, is currently an independent scholar, and teaches and preaches internationally on matters of religion and spirituality. She lives in Virginia with her family. Her website is dianabutlerbass.com and she joins me this week to discuss her new book, Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks.

Monte Farber – Quantum Affirmations

You have a sense of what you want in life and yet it seems to escape you. You’ve read the books, taken the seminars and classes, done what you thought you needed to do to manifest your dreams and you are still disappointed. You may have conditioned your mind to believe that nothing will change and perhaps you are not worthy of fulfillment and happiness. Is there a way you can turn this around?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, nationally known astrologer and intuitive counselor Monte Farber says there is through the science of Quantum Affirmations.

Monte Farber’s brilliant and empathic insights impact everyone he meets. Born and reared in Brooklyn, New York, Monte has developed his own method of psychic perception, a combination of his creative channeling with street-wise spirituality, common sense, intuition, and a genuine love for the human spirit.

Living in the exclusive Hamptons area of Long Island, New York, he has personally counseled many of the celebrities and business elite who know him as “The Best Astrologer in The Hamptons”.

His remarkable insights and down-to-earth advice have been endorsed by leading visionary authors and company executives who use his unique skills as part of their important decision-making mix. In his work and workshops, he shares with his clients and audience the kindness, good humor, and deep wisdom that has enabled him to find true love with his wife and collaborator of 40 years, artist Amy Zerner, along with prosperity, spirituality, contentment and genuine success.

Robert Kopecky – How to Get to Heaven (Without Really Dying)

Most people believe that you must die to get to heaven, but those who have suffered near-death experiences tell a different tale; our quest for happiness and peace can be found while we’re alive. Although we might feel lost at times, our internal, authentic selves truly know why we’re here. Living through difficulties is part of growing into our authentic selves. The secret is in not allowing life to live you, but in knowing what drives you and choosing to live life on your own terms.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, award winning illustrator, art director and animator Robert Kopecky, knows this well. Robert had three near death experiences, and with each gained insight and perspective on living our best life in this life now. Robert explores and teaches about the lessons he learned. He shared his experiences in his first book, How to Survive Life (and Death), and blogs at BeliefNet, The Mindful Word, and Soul Life Times. He joins me this week to discuss his new book, How to Get to Heaven (Without Really Dying).

Every generation has its thought leaders who leave an indelible mark on the world. Born of their personal pain, experience and life lessons, these leaders rise to bring wisdom and light so that others may benefit, heal and grow. Our generation was blessed with the enduring wisdom and presence of Debbie Ford.

Dr. Danny Penman – The Art of Breathing

It’s something that we do thousands of times a day without thinking about it. We do it from seconds after birth until our final moment of life. It gets faster when we exercise and slower when we rest. We may hold this underwater and for certain medical test. Extraordinary beauty has been said to take this away. This gift of life is our breath and learning to use it mindfully can promote health, stress reduction, a deeper understanding of ourselves and peace.

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Dr. Danny Penman, knows well the value of both breathing and mindfulness. Danny is a feature and comment writer for the UK’s Daily Mail and has worked for The Independent and the BBC. He is co-author with Mark Williams of the international best-seller Mindfulness. He joins me this week to discuss his new, beautiful and breathtaking book, The Art of Breathing: The Secret of Living Mindfully.

Lily Sanders - Truth to Triumph

Where are you in your life right now? How much of your life was pre-patterned by your childhood experience, your relationship with your parents and family and how your young mind, heart and soul were shaped by that relationship? Was there joy and security or pain, fear and uncertainty? Are you re-experiencing those patterns in your adult relationships and are they positive, loving and affirming or something else?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited, Lily Sanders, grew up in a domestically violent home, and used ballet class as her sanctuary. That became a springboard to a successful career as a dancer, TV and film actress, Broadway performer and later successful multiple franchise owner. But domestic abuse followed her long into adulthood, risking her life and that of her son…until she took the steps to learn to love herself unconditionally and connect with the Source power of love. Today, she is a highly successful coach in New York helping women live fully empowered, happy lives. She joins me this week to discuss her experiences and book, Truth to Triumph: A Spiritual Guide to Finding Your Truth.

Nick Redfern - The Slenderman Mysteries

Growing up in the fifties and sixties in Brooklyn, New York, I often heard stories…stories that today would be called “urban legends”…about evil beings and people. Often told by older kids, camp counselors and some adults, these stories were designed to frighten, perhaps intimidate and most definitely nurture nightmares. These were the pre-digital, pre-cyberspace days, and story-telling was a verbal art form. With the advent of the internet, apps and social media, the dissemination of these stories has become immediate, widespread, and sometimes with profound and tragic results.

Such is the story of The Slenderman, a character birthed as a “creepypasta” internet meme in 2009 that not only frightened young imaginations but resulted in the tragic stabbing of a 12 year old girl by two classmates in 2014. Is Slenderman a modern phenomenon or does it go much deeper historically and in our psyches?

My guest this week on Destination Unlimited is Nick Redfern. Nick is the author of more than 40 books on the strange, mysterious and unexplained. He has appeared on more than seventy television shows including Ancient Aliens, America’s Book of Secrets, The Unexplained Files and UFO Hunters. His website is http://nickredfernfortean.blogspot.com/ and he joins me this week to talk all things mysterious and discuss his new book, The Slenderman Mysteries: An Internet Urban Legend Comes to Life.

Debra Silverman - The Missing Element

Valentine’s Day…love is in the air! This Roman pagan festival, turned day of remembrance of two Christian martyrs named Valentine by the Church, was romanticized by Shakespeare and Chaucer in their works and turned into the Hallmark Holiday that we know and love (or dread) in 1913. Each year more than 144 million Valentine cards are exchanged, making it the second largest greeting card holiday, not to mention flowers, chocolates, jewelry and other tokens of affection. Projections are that 18.2 billion dollars will have been spent in the United States alone when this day is over! While love may be in the air, many ask, is love in their stars? Is there a connection between romantic compatibility and our birth and progressive astrological charts?

Joining me this week on Destination Unlimited to address this question and other matters astrological is Debra Silverman. Debra is part comedienne, part psychologist, part astrologer and All Real! She helps people turn on their own inner observer to see the things they say and do in a totally objective way. In private practice for more than 38 years, Debra uses astrology and her own system called “The 4 Elements” or “4E” for short as tools to help people step into their own power. She’s the author of The Missing Element: Inspiring Compassion for the Human Condition, numerous columns, hosted her own radio show and her YouTube channel has more than 3 million views!
