The Peaceful Life Podcast

The Peaceful Life Podcast is a series of stories, inspiration, and affirmations to help return your life to peace and joy.

When there's a traumatic event in our lives - whether it's personal or world - we tend to separate our memories and experiences into Before and After. So now we're reconnecting and readjusting to our new "After" world. It's a new world and our culture is changing, but there are many ways it's changing for the better. How are you adjusting?

The Peaceful Life Podcast is a series of stories, affirmations and inspirations to help you return your life to peace and joy.

 

 

A meditation for you and your family, members of your household, or just yourself, in these times of quarantine and beyond. Appropriate for kids and adults of all ages, depending on attention span. Guided meditation for five minutes and then ten minutes of meditation with soft background music.

Affirmation: I am safe, I am healthy, I am loved. Y ou are safe, You are healthy, You are loved. We are safe, We are healthy, We are loved.

Keep this episode on your device and set some time aside each day to do this with all the members in your household.

Is it possible to be TOO positive? To the point where it could hurt our own mental health? I speak with Justice Bartlett--writer, NLP practitioner, and hypnotherapist--about her philosophy on the balance of the positive and the negative.

I found Justice through her article, "Positive Vibes Only" is Toxic: The Danger of New Age Spiritualism.

You can find out more about Justice and her services on her site, Playfully Conscious.

We all have different parts inside of us, the child, the caretaker, and the higher self. I talk about creating a balance between the three selves and guide you through a visualization to access your higher self. Your higher self can give you answers, abundance, and guidance. Use this meditation/visualization to practice accessing your higher self when you need it.

I asked my podcast group "What do you do for Self Care?" People define self care in different ways. I discuss the answers I received, talk about self care misconceptions, and why self care is so important to living a peaceful life.

My self care strategies:

  • Shower/Bathe
  • Clean house, DIY, clear out clutter every quarter
  • Cook dinner for myself
  • Hang with friends
  • Make sure to call friends and check in with them and their lives
  • Manage my finances & budget
  • Get regular dental and medical checkups
  • Take walks with my pup
  • Play with the cats
  • Curl up on the couch and watch "my programs"
  • Work in the garden
  • Create: Write, Photograph, Code
  • Do this podcast!
  • Give selflessly

I talk about what goes into creating a PLP episode, give an update on the state of my own healing, describe a day without my cell phone, and read three letters from my listeners. Including this loaded question: "If you believe everyone is a spectacular human being, does that include Donald Trump?" :o

2. The Companionship - sharing of experiences

3. Your Future Fantasy

This is a visualization that you can use daily to help your body naturally heal what ails you. It's best to listen to this episode in bed, lying on your back, but if that's not comfortable for you then use a soft recliner or chair. This visualization technique is not meant to be used instead or in place of professional medical treatment, but to enhance your body's healing process.

Keep this episode on your device and listen daily, or as needed.

If you are living with illness, chronic disease, or pain, there are many steps you can take to start healing yourself.

In this day and age, we cannot count on the food industry, medical industry, or food industry to help us. We must be in charge of our own bodies. In this episode I go over a few strategies to start helping you heal yourself in this second season of The Peaceful Life Podcast on healing.

Steps to start healing yourself:

  • Mind your thoughts and self-talk
  • Let go of past negativity
  • Remove toxic people from your life
  • Don't participate in verbal negativity
  • Get physical

  • Laugh and love

An episode on how negative or positive thoughts can affect you, your body, your soul, the people and the world around you. You have the choice how to react to people and situations, and your life becomes so much better, happier, and more peaceful when you choose the positive.

Nobody is perfect. Being "judgy" has been engrained in our upbringing. But we can catch these thoughts and reframe them. Redirect. You'll be glad you did.

Thou Art God

Who or what is your god? I talk about the different definitions of god, the evolution of my belief system and how I personally feel god is a part of all of us. I do not impose my beliefs on others, and this episode is not meant to answer any questions. In fact, you can view this show this as a question in itself.

And toward the end of the episode, listen for how I received a kind-of "divine surprise!" 

Some things mentioned in this episode:

The Pew Research Study: Americans' Belief in God

YouTube Video: Kids of Different Religions Describe God

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein

The history of the Pledge of Allegiance

"On this Night" is sung by me and my daughter, Miranda.
