Ego, Evolution, and Making Sense of Our Times with Cate Montana

Why do peace and happiness elude us? Why are people so divided?

According to author Cate Montana, it’s happening because as a nation—as an entire species—we’ve forgotten who we really are. We have confused “self” with ego—the mental program (like a computer code) that gives us the illusion of individuality—an utterly false “reality” similar to what’s presented in the movie The Matrix.

The age-old struggle between love (exemplified by the open mind/open hand) and the fear-driven ego (the closed-mind/closed fist) can never be resolved until we understand who we really are. In this conversation Sandie and Cate Montana discuss what the ego is, how it’s born, how it thinks, and how the ego can be managed and expanded into what is known as transpersonal consciousness—the bridge consciousness between limited personal ego and the transcendent state of egoless enlightenment—a state of mind more aligned with the powerful I AM presence that is the true generator of peace, happiness and unification within.

Cate will also share some basic processes that will help listeners begin to move into transpersonal awareness.

What We Don’t Know About Love - Becoming An Everyday Avatar with Suzy Miller

Every once in a while, a person steps forward on the world stage whose gifts and abilities are so far beyond what we ordinarily encounter that the words just don’t exist to fittingly describe their impact on the lives of others. Such a person, in my experience, is Suzy Miller. A visionary speaker, author, telepathic communicator, multidimensional seer and pioneering founder of the groundbreaking Awesomism Practitioner Process, Suzy Miller single-handedly shifted the perception of what many regarded as a devastating disorder from Autism to Awesomism. In taking something that was synonymous with the word “broken”, and revealing its hidden potential, Suzy Miller not only transformed the lives and the outlook for thousands of parents and children worldwide, but also gave birth to a powerful new word that is rich with positive potential.

Now, in her latest body of work Everyday Avatars – The Journey Back to Love, Suzy Miller is once again weaving her transformative magic on our perceptions about love. Founded on the experiences and insights gained from the past 17 years of pioneering work with the higher consciousness of thousands of energetically sensitive kids, The Journey Back to Love process dramatically shifts all the places where many of us secretly believe we are broken because of lack of love in our past and/or our present and shifts our perception to I AM LOVE.

What does that mean? It means that when we perceive love differently we experience love differently. And when we experience love differently, we experience life and living as a human being in a greatly expanded way.

About the Guest: Suzy Miller

Suzy Miller is a visionary speaker, author, telepathic communicator, multidimensional seer and founder of the groundbreaking Awesomism Practitioner Process and Everyday Avatar: The Journey Back to Love Series.

A former Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist, with a Masters Degree in Education, Suzy pioneered a shift in the perception of autism from an individual “disorder” to a collective revolution in human consciousness and has been playing in the field of leading edge consciousness ever since.

Throughout her long career, Suzy has collaborated with professionals in a variety of fields from psychology, social work, mainstream education and medicine to leading edge scientists, metaphysicians, healers and new thought leaders. She twice collaborated with Dr. William Tiller, Professor Emeritus Stanford University and featured physicist in the movie “What The Bleep…” spearheading both The Autism Intention Healing Experiment as well as an experiment for the elevation of collective human consciousness.

A lifelong student of consciousness, Suzy has personally facilitated the growth and mastery of hundreds of Awesomism practitioners and thousands of private clients worldwide. In addition to continuing to support the full integration of unhealed aspects of Self through private sessions and the Journey Back to Love Series. She currently offers her awareness, experiences and support through private sessions, workshops, articles, speaking engagements, and live events.

In 2017, the US Supreme Court is preparing to take up transgender rights for the first time in history, ruling on the question of whether transgender students are entitled to use bathrooms matching their gender identity. While the issue has only recently ignited a political firestorm across the country, transgender author Lee Schubert has dealt with an inner battle surrounding public restrooms throughout her life.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

* Why Lee has chosen not to change her body to make it more female
* What it means to really know who you are
* Gender, class, religion, race, sexual orientation and age – can we really transcend the stereotypes and cultural conditioning that society imposes upon us telling us who we are, and how we should think and behave?
* And what would happen if we did?
* And more…

Aired Thursday, 19 January 2017, 7:00 PM ET

Internationally acclaimed best-selling author, spiritual teacher, and world-renowned medium, James Van Praagh has received hundreds of thousands of messages from the other side of life. And all too often, in many of these messages, the deceased have shared with him that they want the living to know how to utilize the power of love while they are still living life in the physical body.

In his new book, The Power of Love, James demonstrates the transformative energy and force of love. He reminds you that love knows no limits and can alter a person’s life forever. Sharing vivid personal stories and incredible knowledge from the afterlife, James shows how you can activate the power of love to open your heart to the world.

When you align yourself with loving thoughts, anxiety and worry will start to fade. Decisions that might have preoccupied you before will become easier to make. Difficult events and people will not be drawn to you, because you are learning to release that magnetic energy. When you begin to consciously surround yourself with the energy of love and acceptance—your natural state of being—your journey in this physical dimension can become much smoother, more purposeful, and more powerful.

Four Weeks to Awaken Your Life with Zoë Wild

January 5, 2017
00:0000:00

Aired Thursday, 5 January 2017, 7:00 PM ET

Zoë Wild learned to meditate in the East, in Burma, where she was a Buddhist nun and lived in a monastery for nearly two years. When she gave up being a nun and returned to the west she was shocked to see how differently meditation was taught here. Instead of finding the peace and tranquility they were seeking, Zoe found that many people were struggling. Western meditation, she says, was causing people to move away from their lives, to reject their experience, to feel superior to others who couldn’t do it “properly” or didn’t adopt a certain lifestyle. People were spending more time reading, writing and talking about meditation than actually practicing it.

Her solution: a practical, fun course called Wild Meditation, which liberates meditation from the confines of the cushion, and uses playful exploration in the midst of daily life activities to help you discover the peace and wisdom that lives within you no matter what you are doing. Wild Meditation allows you to rest in your center as you express your unique, quirky, authentic self and open to the full range of experience life has to offer.

Zoë Wild joins Sandie Sedgbeer this week to discuss:

~ Why she made the transition from Buddhist nun to life coach, meditation teacher, activist, writer, and workshop presenter.

~ How meditation underpins the tireless work she does presenting trauma healing workshops, establishing women’s centers, funding students in Turkey, and working towards creating a world where every single person knows their essential, liberated nature and humanity lives in global unity.

~ How you can awaken your life in just four weeks with meditation.

~ And more…

What’s more, she maintains that meditation plays a vital role not only in envisioning the world she believes we should be living in, but also in actively working to create it.

Her foundation, One Light Global is based on the premise that the path to world peace is through meeting every individual from the belief that we are one human family, that we all have one light inside of us, and that we can help each other to create a better world for all.
