042: Values Beliefs Gratitude and Spirituality
Our values and beliefs colour our vision and perception of the world. They determine our actions or inaction. Thoughts affect feelings. Feelings affect behaviour. Behaviour produces results (or the lack thereof). It all begins with our thoughts, since we have to accept a thought for it to become a belief. And a belief is simply a thought we keep thinking with enough emotion and intensity to make it stick. It’s been said that whatever you believe becomes your reality. You do not believe what you see; rather you see what you already believe. "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." Wayne DyerValues are the emotional states that we either move towards (“pleasure” values) or move away from based upon what we want in our life experience ("pain" values). Our beliefs about our values are actually the driver behind our behaviour. When you develop the absolute sense of certainty that powerful, empowering beliefs provide, then you can accomplish virtually anything, including those things other people are certain are impossible. ALL you have to do is change your belief system! Melanie and I make a bit of a joke about that since it is very simple but not always easy, and it is often helpful to have someone to reflect back to you what you perhaps cannot see yourself which is why we are all such advocates of coaching. In today's Fireside Chat with Melanie Spears of The Gratitude Diary, our discussion centres around gratitude, values and beliefs since we are both utterly passionate about how we create our own reality based upon our unique model of the world. One of the most empowering things I finally understood from my time working with Tony Robbins, is that all personal breakthroughs begin with a change in beliefs. The moment we begin to honestly question our beliefs and the experiences we assign to them, we no longer feel absolutely certain about them. Doubt opens the door to replacing your old, disempowering beliefs with new beliefs that support you in the direction you want to go.

041: Out of Belief Into Possibility with Lori Mitchell
This week's Fireside Chat, Out of Belief Into Possibility will have you captivated. We had such amazing feedback from that previous call with Lori Mitchell from Speed Manifesting that she graciously offered to come back and continue the discussion. After all, if you've been tuned into our Fireside Chats, you'll already know that we try to pack a huge amount of information into a very short time and are always racing against the clock! There's always so much to say... As we were chatting it felt very much as if we were covering Speed Manifesting 101 since beliefs (both those that serve, empower and expand us, as well as those that don't) are integral to our ability to manifest. Just that some, a lot or MOST of what we are manifesting is sometimes not what we would ideally like to see showing up in our lives! Remember that the Law of Attraction is ALWAYS working! So if you don't like what is showing up in your life, it might be time to question your thoughts and beliefs about things. Just sayin'! Abraham says that, "A belief is simply a thought you keep thinking" so wouldn't it stand to reason that if we could train ourselves to think "better" thoughts, we can change our programming and therefore our results?We are operating our lives with programming that we didn’t really choose, based on beliefs that may not be true or even part of our conscious thinking! So what do you want to be true?Listen NOW and join the conversation!

040: Speed Manifesting with Lori Mitchell
"The Universe likes speed. Don't delay. Don't second guess. Don't doubt. When the opportunity is there, when the impulse is there, when the intuitive nudge from within is there, act. That's your job. And that's all you have to do." - Joe Vitale in The Secret. I just love this quote although sometimes I'm sure I don't seize the day fast enough and jump when the opportunity arises, but yesterday was NOT one of those days! As you'll hear in this week's Fireside Chat, I "happened upon" Lori Mitchell via a Facebook group while I was battling (and yes, I use that word advisedly!) with my own personal website and she offered some advice... Talk about speed manifesting! From a conversation about Wordpress, membership sites and a screen-shared conversation on Skype, within no time at all we were talking about her book, Speed Manifesting, and her work with people who seem to know a lot about the Universal Laws and personal development but are frustrated in their efforts to turn their life around quickly and create their life consistently. Here's a woman talking my language! So within a very short period of time (like 30 minutes) I had invited Lori on to the show to be interviewed in our latest Fireside Chat about her skill at speed manifesting. "SPEED Manifesting™ is based on years of research and feedback on starting again, manifesting fast prosperity, creating abundance and understanding more than “The Secret” and the Law of Attraction. It is a tried, tested and proven way to quickly and continually create and manifest the life of your dreams." ~ Lori Mitchell ~I think there are many of us who would agree with both Lori and I that The Secret was a wonderful vehicle for opening people's eyes to new possibilities and expanding their creative thinking and manifesting skills but it has also left people feeling frustrated when it doesn't fall into place and materialise as we would hope.... even if we DO gratitude, keep positive and visualize on our desires. I have always thought there was somewhat more to it than that, and Lori certainly agrees there, and although her process is simple it does require (like everything in personal transformation) a measure of commitment and focus. SO Listen NOW as we go through the essential elements of Speed Manifesting!

039: The Work of Byron Katie with Tanya Murphy
OMG! The interview I did today for this week's Fireside Chat was totally engrossing! I thought it was finally time to introduce you to The Work of Byron Katie, since by now I'm sure you know that at Expanding Times we LOVE to bring you tips and especially tools which you can implement yourself; tools that can help you bust false beliefs which are holding you back from your expansion and being all that you can be.. in fact from all that you already ARE! And as is my wont, I've sourced a real expert in the work of Byron Katie ~ in fact one of only THREE certified facilitators of the work of Byron Katie in the whole of Australia! Tanya Murphy and I are part of the same Miracles Group in an online coaching program and when I heard what miracles she is able to help facilitate with her clients on a daily basis, and also how PASSIONATE she is about the work, I knew we had to invite her onto the show and get you all the goss! "I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn't believe them, I didn't suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Freedom is as simple as that. I found that suffering is optional. I found a joy within me that has never disappeared, not for a single moment. That joy is in everyone, always." — Byron Katie If you want to know more about how to distance yourself from the illusions and live a life of greater peace and responsiveness I HIGHLY recommend what has come to be known in spiritual circles as, "The Work" Tanya is living proof that amongst her clients who consistently do The Work with her as an ongoing practice, they commonly report: Alleviation of depression: Decreased stress: Improved relationships: Reduced anger: Increased mental clarity: More energy and More peace.To find out more about "The Work" and how it can transform YOU... ==> Listen NOW

038: Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Today's podcast covers the 'thorny' topic of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome! Although I'm sure many people must have suffered from it in times long gone by, as there was no diagnosis it undoubtedly went undetected or unidentified. So to bring some clarity to the topic, I invited a wonderful lady, Margaret Lambert, who you may have heard me interview before talking about the Emotional Freedom Technique, to come back and share her expertise. She was a long-time sufferer of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue in the 1990's which then propelled her to write a highly acclaimed book about her odyssey, "Longing to Live ~ Journey with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia." According to the Mayo Clinic, "Chronic fatigue syndrome is a complicated disorder characterized by extreme fatigue that can't be explained by any underlying medical condition. The fatigue may worsen with physical or mental activity, but doesn't improve with rest. The cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is unknown, although there are many theories — ranging from viral infections to psychological stress. Some experts (and Marg very much concurs with this opinion as you'll hear in our interview), believe chronic fatigue syndrome might be triggered by a combination of factors." From what I understood from Marg in our call today, there is obviously a difference between fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and yet there are many areas where the symptoms and treatments converge. So listen now as she shares her insights and recommendations for those of you unfortunate enough to have manifested either or both of these "misfortunes"... for as she says in the call, we have to find the gift within the challenge ~ whatever it might be.

037 : Become a Certified Law of Attraction Coach
Have you ever considered becoming a Certified Law of Attraction Coach? I know that many people have thought about it because quite frankly I'm asked all the time about becoming a certified Law of Attraction coach once they know that I became certified myself in Law of Attraction coaching, and people are always curious to know more about what that entails.But more often than not they don't know where to go to get the right information from someone who's done all the research and walked the path (successfully I hope) before them which is why they come to me! So since the Quantum Success Coaching Academy, where I was certified are just about to open their doors to a new intake of students, what better time to let you all know about it. I really do endorse this online course as being one of the most authentic, comprehensive and best value for money Law of Attraction coach certifications I've come across, and Lord knows there are quite a few out there of varying degrees of good and not so good reputation!I really encourage people to consider becoming a Certified Law of Attraction Coach so they can not only learn how to expand their own emotional range and vibrational frequency, but also learn a highly lucrative skill to support their loved ones both energetically and financially. Not to mention being able to guide and mentor the many other people who are desperately searching for meaning and purpose in their own lives at this pivotal time in human consciousness. At least that's what I did. So this week's podcast is all about how to become a certified Law of Attraction coach and how it can benefit you both personally and professionally. I invited my good friend Suzi Cobden to come back again and share her experiences of the QSCA as well since it was during this very course that the two of us first met and began our deep friendship and transformational journey. If you haven't heard her amazing story "If I can do it, so can YOU!" do go back and give it a listen. It was pretty much all due to the support of the Quantum Success Coaching Academy and studying to become a certified Law of Attraction coach!We both owe Christy Whitman and the QSCA so much..

036 : Astrology and the Shift with Maggie Kerr
Right now we're being invited to Dream the New and Dissolve the Old, both as an individual but also as a collective. So in today's podcast I interview a wonderful lady called Maggie Kerr who shares her perspective on how astrology can be used to reflect the Paradigm Shift.How can we better understand the nature of Consciousness and the Shift as seen through the window of astrology? And how do planetary cycles correspond with human evolutionary trends?In her 2014 Year Ahead Astrology Report Maggie writes, " We are living through the most important, exciting and incredible time in human history. A revolutionary new phase in human evolution is unfolding right before our eyes awakening dormant codes in our human potential, and unleashing the very best and worst of times. Times of extremes as the rich get richer at the expense of the poor, our natural world is stressed to the max, and splendid opportunities accompany huge challenges. So how do we respond as individuals in these exciting stressful times? We evolve. We wake up and start doing things differently. The astrology of 2014 is simply loaded with the dynamics of planets all set to finally make this happen! This will be a year of action and adventure when we must strike out into new territory and dare to go for it. The Year of the Earth Horse in Chinese Astrology is loaded with the fire to get things moving at a practical level, in contrast to the more introspective Water Snake of 2013, where we have been clearing up lots of old emotional junk, learning to trust our intuition and tuning in to new levels from higher guidance. Horses and heroes go together of course, thus the nobility and courage of the horse is our animal totem for the year ahead. The call to our individual heroic process began in 2011 when Uranus entered Aries triggering the massive shifts and revolutions in our lives and world since 2014 will be a fast paced year of extremes especially after July when Jupiter (whose animal is the horse) moves into dynamic Leo for the first time since 2002. We will experience breakdowns, breakups, breakthroughs and breath taking shifts that have been building during 2012...

035 : Who and what are "The Awakeners"?
Have you ever heard the term "awakener" and would you like to hazard a guess at what it means? And even if you have a sense of what it is to be one, would you be courageous enough to own your own gift as an awakener and stand in the truth of who you really are? Exciting ~ and expanding ~ times are upon us and people all over the planet are waking up, and in my humble opinion as they (we) do, we are starting to affect the people around us and influence their awakening process almost by osmosis. It may as yet be a modest difference that you and I are making to the planetary vibes, but from small acorns grow mighty oaks and we have no idea how one kind word, unconditional love, forgiveness or simply a smile can impact someone else's future trajectory. However over the last 50 years or so, certain beings have incarnated with perhaps greater influence than others of us, being able to impact large groups and even societal change, and in today's call I've invited Sahaja Coventry to return and talk to us about some of those lightworkers and energy transformers, we refer to as "Awakeners." Please be assured that if YOU are a fan of Expanding Times, listen to our podcasts, read our articles or follow us on social media, then we know that you too are an awakener and will do whatever we can to support your message and essence to get out there in any way that we can to help accelerate this global paradigm shift. If you need any help with this, then sing out via our contact form or any of the aforementioned channels. But for a really fascinating podcast on Awakeners and their power to connect us to Source or Grace or whatever you prefer to call the Universal Force, ==> Listen Now

034: The Financial Shift ~ Eyes Open, No Fear
We're going through a complete paradigm shift in terms of our world right now, and how we operate within it. In particular a global financial shift is upon us as our current system can no longer sustain itself. Get prepared for some big changes. In this podcast we aim to bring you up to speed on what WE believe is going on that the media and mainstream channels are not reporting ~ or perhaps are not even aware of themselves. These changes in our financial shift are part of the Great Shift in Consciousness. This Shift is well underway and is in fact accelerating. The purpose of this latest podcast is to create awareness of some of the financial changes so that you can be prepared both physically and emotionally. Have your eyes open, but stay pragmatic.Many people in the financial arena suggest that we are on a path of two choices: currency collapse or a global currency reset backed by commodity assets. One is inevitable (the collapse) if we do not do the other (the reset). Many sources say that the consequences of a worldwide currency collapse are too dire, so this means that a global currency reset will occur.In this week's podcast, Karen shares the depth of the research she's been preparing since we started Expanding Times in a bid to enlighten us all to these adjustments and empower us.Corruption has been and continues to be exposed, which is a great thing – it goes far deeper than any of us can imagine, but rather than go there, it’s enough to know that we’ve been willing participants and that those who are waking up from their trancelike state of unconsciousness no longer want to play that game. It’s time for change and it's coming! All over the world, people are waking up to the financial slavery system of which we've all unintentionally been a part. But there's no need for worry if we take the time to inform ourselves. Many around you who don't understand that this is all part of moving into a higher level of consciousness will feel like victims, but you can be there to steady them and shine your light.This latest Expanding Times Fireside Chat podcast is intended to be a means of awakening you to what has been going on and the beginning of your education and empowerment. While there are great changes coming, we will most definitely go through a period of disruption, so it's important to be prepared. Stay focused on the end result, which is that we will free ourselves from the financial slavery system of massive global and personal debt, credit and and we will experience prosperity and an unprecedented abundance of wealth. Stay positive and centered! We are...

When I asked today's invited guest, Sahaja Coventry what qualifies her to talk so knowledgeably about, and work so intimately with, addictions, she said without hesitation "My addictive personality!" Go figure! Well at least she's honest...I think we all have an addictive personality in some way, shape or form if we're truthful, and it can get quite obstreperous if most of us are not vigilant, discipled and hyper aware of why we're doing what we are doing and what feelings our addictions to even seemingly innocent pursuits, such as reading, shopping or maybe even gossiping are trying to cover up. And that's without mentioning recreational drugs, alcohol, food, relationships and a whole heap more!Addiction has long been understood to mean an uncontrollable habit of using alcohol or other drugs. Because of the physical effects of these substances on the body, and particularly the brain, people have often thought that “real” addictions only happen when people regularly use these substances in large amounts. However more recently we have come to realize that people can also develop addictions to behaviors, such as gambling, shopping, reading, TV and even quite ordinary and necessary activities such as exercise and eating. What these activities have in common is that the person doing them finds them pleasurable in some way yet they mask feelings and unmet emotions that the individual would rather not confront and feel as they may be distressing.In today's call, Sahaja and I discuss the value to our long term health of getting 'down and dirty' with the core of what's really going on underneath the behaviour, agreeing that whatever is not LOVE is up for inspection and review these days. We are being invited more and more to get real and vulnerable and delve deep into our souls. And many awakeners have come to earth at this time to help us do that with the minimum of suffering. I recently recorded a podcast about The EmMatrix in which I am very well versed and which you might like to listen to. I use it all the time in my coaching/healing work to help people get unstuck from pernicious patterns and addictions or The Journey work of which Sahaja is an accomplished practitioner is another amazing tool she loves to share with people who are really ready to dive deep and come home.

032: Vitality Part 2
Last week Karen and I talked at great length about Vitality, and as usual we went way over time so have had to turn this into two episodes! Out of the four pillars of vitality, outlined by Pedram Shojai in his recent movie Vitality, which was our departure point for our discussion last week, we only managed to cover healthy diet and good eating practices, so this week we continue by covering the other three ‘spokes of the vitality wheel’ since they all interact and nurture each other. We need to optimize each one in order to experience true vitality. We also have to learn how to really live from a holistic perspective and take personal responsibility for our total Body/Mind/ Spirit wellness and vitality. So we at Expanding Times are here to help YOU in all areas of your health, wellness, zest for life and vitality and if you need any support at all from us we are both more than willing and able to respond to that call. Sometimes it can be hard to find a medical practitioner who recognizes the need for an integrated approach to medicine unless you’re really discerning and fortunate. But we believe that good health is categorically the basis for higher growth and evolution, personal growth and AWAKENING!! Which also means including healthy emotions, enlightened spirituality and flourishing relationships as well as sound physical health: in fact we need to foster our entire lifestyle. So ask yourself these questions right now. How am I living? And what could I do to be more healthy in all areas of my life? Vitality is based on energy which comes from a regular intake of clean food, enough water and oxygen, regular muscle building exercise and sufficient rest and regenerative sleep as well as a positive mindset. Listen NOW as we expand the conversation!

031: Vitality Part 1
I watched a really interesting movie the other day that really explains vitality from a holistic perspective ~ a view that is characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease. So Karen and I decided to give you a resumé of said movie "Vitality" as found a lot of value in the content that the director had to share.So what do we mean by vitality? Several dictionary definitions explain it as: thecontinuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence, or having the energy to do whatever you want, emotionally, physically and mentally with a zest for lifeSo in today's podcast we ask you to look at how you're living - Our body has daily energy needs, and provided we extract enough energy from the food we eat, from our exercise, from the air we breathe and from the rest that we receive, we can live a vital life. The global healthcare system is broken yet we as patients are taught that it can fix us. It doesn't teach us what to do to heal ourselves. Rather, it encourages us to do whatever we feel like: eat whatever, drink whatever and then go to the doctor to be healed. The body, mind, emotional life, interpersonal relationships and spiritual life are inextricably interwoven and only when all of these are balanced, can we lead a vital, healthy life. While modern medicine does remarkable things with trauma, it's not the solution to vitality and health and we as individuals must take responsability for our own wellness. Doctors in the USA now have to see a patient every 7 - 10 minutes to be profitable and in that time, all they have time for is to make a diagnosis and write prescriptions. And a shocking 90% of doctor visits are stress-related yet there is no time to get into why people are sick and treat the CAUSES and not simply the symptoms.In this call, we delve into the four pillars of wellness ~ diet, exercise, sufficient good sleep and mindset.As usual we run way over time so this constitutes Part 1 of Vitality.Tune in to Part 2 next week!And if you'd like to watch the movie you can click here for a free viewing.Let us know what you thought of it!

030: What is Reconnective Healing?
Today's podcast is all about Reconnective Healing and the work of Eric Pearl, and I interview two of my closest friends, Suzie Cobden and Karen Waters about their work with Reconnective Healing. According to the Reconnective Healing website: "We live in a world where we are bombarded by external messages about what we should do, who we should be, and how we should function. Given this acculturation, those seeking balance and harmony often end up running frantically from one doctrine to another, in search of someone else’s answers. At The Reconnection®, however, we acknowledge the inter-connectedness of every human being and the humility of not knowing all the answers. From this place, we offer an alternative vision for walking through the world. First, we help you become more intrinsically aware of the universal intelligence that created all life forms. Next, we teach you how to tune into and access the healing frequencies of this intelligence, from both inside and out. Lastly, we demonstrate how to bring in this intelligence and interact with it at a more comprehensive and evolved level – to inform, guide, heal, and transform your life. The Reconnection® principle is simple, and the outcome is revolutionary: There is a healing power that transcends the limitations of human ability and imagination. By opening to it, without preconceived agendas, we are able to restore balance and harmony in our lives and, as such, transform our bodies, hearts, minds, and souls in ways that otherwise may seem impossible."The Reconnective healing frequencies are composed of light, information, and intelligence. They work on our DNA, acupuncture meridians, and the light field or grid surrounding us and extending out from our meridian lines helping to balnce mind, body and spirit as one.So to discover more about how Reconnective Healing can benefit you, LISTEN NOW!

029: What is E.F.T or The Emotional Freedom Technique
The Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a psychological acupressure technique Karen and I regularly use and highly recommend to optimize our emotional and physical health. Although it's still often overlooked, emotional health is absolutely essential to your physical health and wellbeing, and no matter how devoted you are to the proper diet and lifestyle, you will not achieve your body's ideal healing and preventative powers if emotional barriers stand in the way.Recent research agrees that emotional trauma contributes greatly to disease, and clinical trials have shown that EFT tapping is able to rapidly reduce the emotional impact of memories and incidents that trigger emotional distress. Once the distress is reduced or removed, the body can often rebalance itself, which in turn can then accelerate healing. EFT uses elements of Cognitive Therapy and Exposure Therapy, and combines them with Acupressure, in the form of fingertip tapping on 12 acupuncture points. Over 20 clinical trials published in peer-reviewed medical and psychology journals have demonstrated that EFT is effective for phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, pain and other problems. I personally have used it frequently on myself and taught it to my clients as a panacea for anxiety and depression. But it can also help with physical ailments, pain in the body, help to eliminate negative thoughts and feelings as well as supporting positive outcomes!Plus it's relatively quick, can be done without consulting a professional (although of course one can go deeper and unravel more complex and obscure beliefs and blockages by enlisting the help of a trained counselor such as my guest today ~ Marg Lambert). Tune in as Marg gives us background into how and why EFT is so effective, while giving us a direct experience we can all sense in less than 5 minutes.

028: Making a Difference ~ Generosity Philosophy with Kim Trumbo
Before I give you the show notes of today's Fireside Chat with Kimberly Trumbo from Generosity Philosophy I had to share this amazing quote by Robert F. Kennedy about how making a difference can impact the world. Today's podcast is all about how small acts of generosity and random acts of kindness can transform our world and shift the collective energy from pain and fear to LOVE!“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Kim Trumbo is one of those people ~ a young (compared to me anyway!) woman who heard the call one day to begin podcasting and feature people from all over the world in not for profit organisations or individuals acting singly, helping and contributing to the lives of others in humble and heartwarming ways.In honour of the 2nd Birthday of Global Love Letters we begin by reminding people about how easy it is to make someone's day by writing an anonymous love letter and leaving it for a stranger to find. Then we go on to talk about other ways of making a significant, positive impact on someone's life... if there's one thing that is clear from chatting with Kim, she underlines the fact that even though we all face inevitable challenges in our lives, one doesn't have to be famous or wealthy to be active in making the world a better place!All it takes to create an entire movement is the desire and determination of any one person and Kim is out there lightling the way!Listen NOW!Following the Generosity Philosophy is a way of life to be practised daily!

027: Emotional Clearing ~ The EmMatrix
Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough? Do you ever feel like there’s something holding you back from having the life you want? Do you ever feel like you have no control over what happens to you?Do you have regrets about things you have done (or have not done)?Do you think you’re not clever, pretty, thin, etc enough?If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions, you could ABSOLUTELY benefit from emotional clearing. So what is it that drives you? What stops you from achieving what you want ~ what you know you are capable of? How come you’re outwardly quite successful and can see your future mapped out in front of you and yet something STILL holds you back? It might feel as if you are constantly bumping up against the same old, same old time and time again ….. AND whatever that is will be entirely unique to you. We're all unique and even though as human beings there are only so many possible storylines that can influence us, (unworthiness, fear of being alone, not being loved, fear of failure etc ) it is how we've put the meanings and the beliefs together in our own distinctive style that makes the process of clearing the blocks absolutely unique to you and as a facilitator an absolute miracle for me to observe! Whatever happens or has happened in our lives will make us feel SOMETHING … and you better believe that no-one else made you angry, sad, upset or even happy for that matter! Whether we like it or not, our emotions are simply an internal response to some kind of stimulus. Someone cuts us off in traffic … we feel annoyance or anger. We curse. The truth is that the driver didn’t put the anger and emotional pain inside of us. It was already there and rather their action unleashed a whole range of internal triggers which then led to our external reaction / response. And this is true of ALL our emotions... both ‘good’ and ‘bad’. But what if there were no such thing as a ‘negative’ emotion and that everything we feel were simply a window to go deeper inside ourselves to discover more of who we REALLY are at our core ~ a radiant being filled with light and love! We cannot change the suffering or trauma that happened in the past (much of which is very likely a cause of what blocks us today) but we CAN change the way we feel about it now by gaining new awareness, insight and consciousness. We can detox it, change the frequency, the vibration of it, and TRANSFORM the energy, bringing in supportive resources instead of limiting patterns that impose restrictions on us. True emotion only lasts a number of minutes. Yet many people have unconsciously chosen to stay on the same rollercoaster for minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, or even a whole lifetime, re-running the same old limiting blocks and patterns. WHY? BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO STOP! In today’s podcast I talk about The EmMatrix technique ~ a graceful, intelligent process facilitated by yours truly, TRANSFORMING blockages into something that resonates with us at a soul level, brings peace, clarity and connection to our inner self and a reconnection to our body, our mind and our soul. Not bad, eh! My way of working with the basic tool of the EmMatrix has developed and expanded over time the more artful I have become using it! I find it is a very dynamic and practical way of working with a “package” of emotions, issues or blocks that simply clog our DNA and keep us STUCK! When we start to access the truth of how we feel in the body and not in the mind … we are able to move forward in a more authentic, integrated and aligned way.Quantum physics, neural pathways, common sense, science, and much more, all play their part in the success of The EmMatrix, but you really don't need to know the mechanics of the process. All you need to know is that I have worked with countless clients from all walks of life and from all over the world, and this process WORKS!Feel free to connect with me via www.expandingtimes/contact for more information and to book a life changing sesion!

026 Interpreting Intuition
Do you feel like you’re in charge of your own destiny? Would you LIKE to feel more in the driver's seat of your own life? Do you believe the decisions you make are rational or intuitive, (or hopefully a little bit of both)? Do you consider yourself skilled at weighing up your options and making favourable decisions? And yes I DO know that Karen and I go on about how we should try to let go of too much control, but we do also all need to allow the flow of our intuition to connect us to the stream of Universal Energy, which if we allow it will inevitably lead us where we want to go with greater ease and grace rather than with struggle and stress. A healthy balance of logic and intuition, mind and heart, reason and trust in one's gut is the Expanding Times healthy recipe for a smoother ride through life!Intuition is defined in the dictionary as the ability to know and understand something directly without the need for conscious reasoning. It's a process that bridges the gap between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind, and likewise between gut feeling and analysis.Synonyms might be: instinct, clairvoyance, sixth sense or second sight and it’s a totally fascinating form of brain power that goes way beyond the rational mind. Yet since EVERY time you make a decision, your logical brain enters an often invisible battle between risk and reward ~ between intuition and rationale it is very important to have a good relationship with one's inner world (inner tuition). Imagine you got a flat tyre on your way home last night. You could either go to the repair shop first thing in the morning, or drive to work on your spare and run the errand on your lunch break. You're dreading the idea of having to sit around for an hour or more, waiting on your car. You take a few deep breaths and invite intuitive information to come into your consciousness. It is highly probable that the errand will take far less time in the morning. You follow this guidance, and are in and out of the tyre store in fifteen minutes. Some people think of intuition as a mystical power, while sceptics write it off as no more than lucky guesswork. Everyone is intuitive. Put aside any concerns you have about being gifted in this area. Your intuition is a function of your Soul itself, and since you most definitely have a Soul, it just becomes a matter of learning how to access and cultivate your inherent intuitive abilities. Then as you tune in to yourself more and more, with practice you'll start noticing your own quiet voice within. Some people might see flashes of pictures, some people get feelings and others experience a simple "knowingness" but no matter how YOU experience intuition, it is definitely something you can and should develop and in today's call we show you how you can access your intuitionand get response in under 3 minutes! Whether we ‘re making life-changing decisions or small everyday choices, the above scenarios are all examples of how our intuition can serve us. Our intuition is one of the most fantastic resources at our disposal. When we are able to access this tool accurately and reliably, it can save us time, money, energy, and a lot of frustration. Our intuition can show us the quickest way towards a desired goal. That goal can be finding a future life partner, or simply getting home in time for dinner. Our intuition can assist us in embracing our life purpose and can help us avoid unnecessary detours and roadblocks on our path. In today's call my invited guest, Bronwyn Clee, creator of Interpreting Intuition and I, discuss our personal experiences of listening to our intuition as well as what can happen when we don’t!

025: Getting Clear on What you Want
Clarity is more than just a feeling. There’s an emotional state associated with it, but it’s even more than that. Clarity is a palpable vibe. When you’re really clear, you can sense that vibe through every cell of your being. Your mind and emotions are centered. Every part of you is on the same page. There’s no fear or uncertainty and even if the "doubter" is there, you are able to let him or her rave on without getting hooked in! This is a powerful state of BE-ing to experience because you are in the flow, magnetic and able to attract miracles and magic.This week's podcast is all about getting clear and the main thing I teach you is how to use the Clarity Through Contrast Technique. This is a super simple process I learned a few years ago in my Law of Attraction coach certification, and which I not only use repeatedly with my coaching clients, but have used on many occasions on myself. Getting clarity through using contrast is a great technique for those people.... of whom the world is full... who when asked what they want in life will give you a catalogue of what they DON'T want but who have quite a challenge extracting what they DO! Last week we spoke about Living a Life of Purpose ~ following your joy and allowing your heart to guide you. But I sensed some of you out there saying, “what if I’m so far removed from being able to access my heart, I don’t know what will give me joy?” Well today's podcast is for you!On our website http://www.expandingtimes.com/clarity-contrast-fireside-chat-25 you'll also find a template and complete instructions for the Clarity Through Contrast process as well as the Desire Statement exercise!

024: Living a Life of Purpose
Today's podcast is our very first one of 2014. The energy of last year (and let's face it, some previous years too) felt really heavy, stuck and not particularly flowing for many of us. Looking back on last year and trying to take stock of my successes, highlights and magic moments I'm almost ashamed to say that my list was pretty lacking. But this year I'm optimistic that new adventures, opportunities and adventures await us all and my life will be filled with mystery and passion. So what do we mean by living a life of passion? Well one perspective is beautifully expressed by Eleanor Roosevelt – former First Lady. “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste and experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” That’s it!!!! That being said, we're inspired by this new beginning and encourage each and every one of you to turn the page on the past, to let go of suffering and regret and let us all turn our attention to new beginnings and adventures. And that is not something we only think about at the start of a New Year, since EACH DAY is an opportunity to start afresh, to be as present as we can and to CHOOSE the way we interpret events, also choosing the ensuing decisions we make based on our conclusions. So what IS the purpose of life? What does living a life of passion look like? We believe that the purpose of life is to be joyful, to experience anything and everything that makes your heart sing and to follow the breadcrumbs, however small, that lead you to your eventual destination of daily happiness and joy. I’ve come across so many people today who feel discouraged because they say they don’t know what their purpose is. We seem to have become obsessed with finding and living it and in my humble opinion I believe that stems from a genuine desire to expand and be more, to live our potential, to contribute and make a difference, to leave a legacy of some sort ~ even if that is simply to have touched people in small and often unnoticed ways and to live a life of meaning. In "Man's Search for Meaning" Viktor Frankl wrote, "The purpose of life is to live a life of joy ~ a life of making a difference and giving," and we certainly agree that contribution is a very high value that many of us on the planet today share and need in order to feel truly fulfilled. But that meaning will be as different for each of us as there are people on the planet. What lights me up may make you cringe and vice versa. NO ONE is here to tell you how you SHOULD live, so we are not here in our call either to add more pressure to your world! What we DO encourage you to consider is that this journey called Life will be over before we realise it, so why spend another second living a life that isn’t personally meaningful to you? So LISTEN NOW and discover our personal perspective on how you can bring more passion and purpose into your daily life.

023: 2013 and Beyond
Before I summarize our latest Fireside Chat, reviewing 2013 and beyond, I wanted to share this wonderfully uplifting quote from Carlos Barrios, a Mayan priest, historian, anthropologist, researcher and an expert in the Sacred Maya Calendar. Hopefully it will give you a more positive outlook on all these current shifts and changes. "Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action...The prophesied changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are. This is a crucially important moment for humanity and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet...The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find you heart, and you will find your way." So as 2013 draws to a close, Karen and I wanted to review the last year since 12/21/12 and what many people feared might herald "the End of the World"... What was certainly a pivotal point for the dawning of New Consciousness and greater collaboration on Planet Earth has indeed brought about many shifts and transformation ~ some of it frightening and awesome in the true sense of the word, much of it touching and inspiring, depending on your perspective! Once more we encourage you to become increasingly aware of where you're putting your attention, energy and focus and the words that you're speaking. We really DO have the choice in every moment! And again, that is not to belittle the terrible things that are happening on Earth, but do you want to "put your finger in the socket" and plug into the drama, gossip and media scaremongering or do you want to support and encourage those around you to recognize this shift as something that will ultimately bring about "Heaven on Earth"? The earth IS evolving, just as we are and will be positively refashioned through the Shift. It’s analogous to giving birth – there is some contortion as well as some challenging and even painful moments and we don’t know how long it will take, but once we're through the birth canal, we’ll be in a new 5D reality where gratitude, co-creation, appreciation, love, oneness and instant manifestation will be our reality. Yee ha!!We know that great changes are coming very soon (within the next 6 months even), although nobody knows for sure what they are going to look like. All we can do is to urge you to stay as grounded, centered and optimistic as possible. We believe that we all clamoured to be here, taking physical form, at this time RIGHT NOW and to play our respective roles in global awakening, even if whatever is happening around us makes us question what on earth possessed us to live THIS! Just know that we are here for you all: to love, accompany and support anyone and everyone who might be finding this birth activation just a wee bit too much!
