Dawn Bates – Why You Need to Share What Happened?

Aired Monday, November 16, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

To help others understand that anything can happen to any of us at any time. None of us are immune. To help educate others and be prepared for the unknown. Mostly my guest today, Dawn Bates shares because she wants for us to protect ourselves from the harm caused by the State, which encompasses the police and social care system. She herself shares what her and her family went through with a deep knowing it needs to be shared.

The work Dawn has done around the world in the arenas of cultural diversity, politics and leadership has not been palatable for many people, and then people wonder why there are so many problems in the world.

Dawn asks:

Is it the system which is flawed though? Or is it the people who work within the system?

Both if you ask me.

And here is why.

As with any organisation, it is made up of people, and people come with a whole heap of views, ideas, and opinions; which they gained from borrowed beliefs, values and their own experiences in life.

Together these individuals create laws, rules and processes based on who they are, and what they think is best for others. How do these people know what is best for others though?

Most of what these people know and understand comes from a text book and institutionalised brainwashing from the education system, which is propagated by a government who wish to remain in power and have control over the people.

As a world leader in change, an author, a publisher, an author strategist, Dawn joins us today to educate WHY it’s important to share your story and the impact it can have! She demonstrates this by the transformational outcomes who many benefit from.

Joanna Alexopoulos – Access and Activate Your Inner Light with Truth And Hope

Aired Monday, September 21, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

Do you believe that a lifetime of disharmony could open your heart to compassion and unconditional love for our world?

Headache, fatigue, nausea, brain fog, poor vision and shallow breathing plagued her existence, for four decades. Although she braved through life with faith and trust, Joanna did, however, eventually give up on life!

It was in the fall of 2012 that she gave up and completely surrendered and accepted whatever God had in store for her.

Joanna Alexopoulos’s spiritual awakening began at this time with connection with her spirit guides through mind to mind communication in the form of automatic writing. Her guides, in turn, lovingly paved the way for contact and communication with an even higher realm of consciousness, a collective of ascended masters, for the delivery of their wisdom through her book Awaken To Your Truth: The Time Is Now.

“My passion for helping people began as a journey in understanding myself. I pursued a quest for knowledge and growth, to find answers to my own pain and personal challenges, in an attempt to heal myself” ~ Joanna Alexopoulos

We are so happy to have Joanna as a guest author on Light On Living here today and share with OMTimes Radio’s audience what she has learned.

Joanna’s struggle was not new but her understanding of it changed her forever.

Her awakening journey has helped her to learn about God, life, and the life beyond.

Joanna is an open channel and attains universal wisdom and guidance from angels, spirit guides and ascended masters for the collective.

She is an empathic intuitive, author, poet, channeler/messenger, spiritual mentor, reiki energy practitioner and motivational speaker.

Joanna’s word is HOPE and her theme is “We are infinite beings of love and light, the divine truth of All That Is … the power by which all is possible.”

Joanna makes her home with her family in Toronto, Canada, a large perennial garden, a Zen garden, and an extensive collection of nature and sky photography.

What Are You Pursuing During The Pandemic?

Aired Monday, September 7, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

Have you put vacations, trips, adventures and exploration on hold during the pandemic?

It seems so many areas of our lives are getting the red light, but does it have to be that way?

Travel and tourism is such an attractive industry as the expectation to be shown a new world, way, and experience as well as be introduced to new cultures and communities are a desired outcome.

Meaningful travel experiences are about more than travelling afar , enjoying then returning. They are about creating an impact in how we feel about a new community, about deepening our commitment in how we show up in our current lives, and they offer us a way to expand our participation in being a part of leaving a legacy within an environment.

Travel is about being able to tell stories of our best and worst memories to open the hearts and imaginations of those who are about to venture next.

There are times in our lives when the borders of our options change. Accessibility might be restricted due to financial, health , or even our own belief in possibilities. My guest today is here to guide us and recommend some of the off the beaten path possibilities!!!

Suzanne knows how to find the places for every age , every budget and places that provide family friendly fun. As a fiction novel author and passionate hospitality and tourism host Suzanne is on a back packing mission to help people with their life map so they don’t miss out on any attractions along their path.

If you’ve been looking to enjoy a mini magical, natural, fill up your tea cup vacation Suzanne will be sharing about #Lake George and the sites It has to offer.

Journey with us today at 12pm noon ET on Light On Living, OMTimes Radio.

Beyond The Chapter Interview Series – Heather Andrews and Sarah Konelsky

Aired Monday, July 20, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

How To WISELY Ask For Support When We Need Help The Most

Beyond The Chapter Interview Series Episode Two brings a difficult and what seems like a challenging task of asking for help and support to light.

These two authors share how asking for help was what they needed but in the beginning judgement, shame, expectations, and superhero syndrome kept them from being able to do so. Learning how to wisely reach out for help opened doors to overcoming a lot of pain and prevented living a future life full of resentments.

When we don’t or can’t ask for help we end up writing our own story differently than we want. We lose connection, not just with loved ones and community but also we become disconnected from our passions, our purpose, and our selves.

“By asking for help, often in non-conventional ways, I have learned to cope & restore my sense of balance” ~ Sarah Konelsky

“Healthy balance comes from ongoing awareness of what you tell yourself in the story of your life” ~ Heather Andrews

Whether you need help while caring for another; an elderly parent, children, someone with an illness or disease or even yourself needing support along life’s journey, today’s guests share the upside of asking for help and inspires listeners to imagine the lightness and ease of what support, guidance and help brings.

Heather Andrews is a publisher, international best-selling author, and speaker. After writing her first book, Heather saw firsthand how stories foster hope and change lives. It became apparent to her that the process of writing and sharing compelling stories is a transformational one, for both the audience and the author. The profound healing that Heather both felt and observed after publishing her first book was a monumental sign. Through her own re-discovery of self-esteem and her journey to the realization of a deeper personal identity based on values rather than just a prestigious job title, Heather knew she needed to help others like her get their powerful stories in front of those who needed them most.

Heather is a sought-after conference speaker who inspires audiences in her own direct and dynamic manner by sharing her challenges and survival strategies that continue to help her optimize adversity. A voice for self-discovery and fearless revitalization, Heather always makes a positive difference.

Connect with Heather:

Sarah Konelsky, a self-proclaimed prairie girl with an island heart, lives in Calgary, Alberta. Married to her best friend and high-school sweetheart, together they have raised two beautiful souls.

Traveling and writing inspire Sarah to wander the globe, seeking experiences that engage her spirit in meaningful connection and personal growth. Her passion for Hawaiiana led to her becoming haumāna (a student) of the Aloha Music Camp, a project of the Mohala Hou Foundation “dedicated to promoting the (worldwide) teaching and sharing of Hawaiian music, dance, language and culture”. Her passion for pursuing personal excellence stems from creating the life she desires through the coaching and mentoring of Erin Skye Kelly and Associates, including her incredible Achievement Club team.

In October 2018, Sarah was granted the gift of caring for and bearing witness to the final phase of her mother’s journey as her soul gently transitioned from a single life force to one of universal energy.

Barefoot Balance – Lisa Berry

Aired Monday, June 29, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST / 12:00 PM EST

Today you may find yourself in disbelief that something you do every day, you don’t really know how to do. Like standing, lime sitting properly, like walking.

Not only did I think I was doing these properly I thought they were just motions. I soon learned the hold the key to way more. During this episode I’ll be sharing from the newly released published chapter, Barefoot Balance – Getting a Grip on What Serves You, and discussing the BIG life lessons I personally learned from one single yoga session that would enhance my life forever! Join me and find out how a simple postural stance you can change your entire life.

Lessons Learned:

1. How we stand reflects how we are feeling in the moment.Our posture tells a story, a tale of attitude, beliefs, daily practices, and connections.
2. We can use our awareness of our physical presentation and use its power to remain in balance.
3. As we become clearer on what serves us, on what feels good and is effortless for our bodies, our goals become much easier to define as well as achieve.
4. To be outstanding we need to stand out by living with passion. Standing in a balanced and grounded manner supports our heart and promotes our breathing. It also keeps us stable and unshakable.

Mindset Tips:

1. Posture affects mindset and state. The world throws stuff at us all day long and self- correction is us choosing a better way.
2. Do regular posture checks, to empower, love, nurture, and motivate yourself.
3. Get back on track with your goals and/or get back into alignment with your beliefs, by adjusting your posture.
4. To restore energy and lift spirits: lift your head, so your chin is parallel to the ground, and look up.
5. To lessen stress and anxiety: drop your shoulders, breathe deeply and slowly.
6. To relieve overwhelm: tuck in your tush and tighten your abdominals to relieve low back pressure.
