136. WTF Is Metaphysics
Metaphysics teaches that he physical world of form and the non-physical realms of mind, emotion and spirit operate as a system. They are not separate. What is happening in our physical reality obviously impacts how we feel and think, but the reverse is true as well. How we feel, the beliefs we have and how we act, consciously or unconsiously, has profound creative force in our lives. The spiritual principle, as within/so without, that our inner reality creates te world of form, is the underlying dynamic of metaphysics. ----- Please follow me on Insight Timer!

135. Prayer vs. Meditation
Prayer and meditation are like a spiritual conversation. Prayer is talking and meditation is listening. We can all grow in our communication skills, both with the people in our lives and with Source. Doing the same spiritual practice over time has benefits, but it also has risks. Experimenting with different types of prayer and exploring new traditions can invigorate a lifeless spirituality. Some recommended teachers and creators to check out are Marianne Williamson, Russel Brand and Igor Kufayev, if you want to expand your own practice and approach.  ----- Please follow me on Insight Timer!

134. Conditional vs Unconditional Love
There is a difference between conditional and unconditional love. Most of what we call love may not actually be loving. We often confuse neediness, desire or dependency for love. Growing in our ability to love selflessly and generously is some of the most important work we do as humans.  ----- Please follow me on Insight Timer! Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

There is an infinite resource for unconditional love, wisdom, compassion and healthy boundaries available to us all. The Great Mother, a powerful aspect of the Divine Feminine, comes to us in many forms; through nature, the Earth, the Christian form of Mary, and the many Goddesses of world traditions.

130. Karmic Issues
Our birth circumstances can create a template for the karmic issues that call us to grow in this lifetime. What we resist persists. If we don’t work through our stuff and grow and evolve in the here and now, our issues may follow us into the next incarnation. Perhaps we even agree to our life situation on a soul level so that we can grow and evolve our own consciousness. Renée talks about the Buddhist concept of Bardo, the space between lifetimes, growing in forgiveness as an antidote to anger and how birthing her own children healed her in powerful and unexpected ways. ----- Please follow me on Insight Timer!

129. Mindfulness, Silence & Thich Nhat Hanh
In our busy lives we often spend more time checking off our to do list and getting on to the next task then we do actually experiencing the beauty and complexity of life. It's easy to take things for granted and miss the many opportunities for joy and fulfillment that are always available to us. When we learn to look deeply at ourselves, our relationships and the world around us, we find that gratitude and happiness arise naturally from within. This is the practice of mindfulness. Renee talks about learning to look deeply while on retreat with the Zen Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh and gives some practical tips for living more fully by looking deeply right now. Thich Nhat Hanh passed away on Jan 22, 2022, after this throwback episode was recorded.

128. The Bright Side of Shadow
All light casts a shadow. We all have a shadow side. Shadow is the part of ourself that holds all of the things that we reject about ourselves. It holds our fears, our rage, even our potential. Making friends with our shadow offers the opportunity to grow in compassionate and loving kindness to all parts of ourself. As we integrate our shadow side, we become more whole than we have ever been before. -- Please follow me on Insight Timer! Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

127. Judgement
Judgement is rooted in fear and separates us from others and from our own authentic self. Like Rapunzel locked in the tower, our judgement often imprisons the innocent, unique and magical parts of ourselves and keeps us divided and longing for wholeness. Maturing judgement into discernment, allows us to make clear choices and honor our own moral code from a place of empowerment and clarity rather than from negativity or condemnation. -- Please follow me on Insight Timer!

126. Getting Unstuck
Most of us feel stuck in some areas of our life. We might be stuck in an unfulfilling job, a dead relationship, with our health, weight, education,  or with a creative project we can't seem to start or finish. Often we have conflicting motives, desires or beliefs within us. There's what we consciously want for ourselves; but there may be other, unconscious parts of us that are afraid of change, don't believe we are worthy of success or love, or want to keep us safe from taking risk and sabotage our evolution. There is a spiritual principle that we create what we believe. If we are unsatified with our life circumstances, the possibility for positive change is ALWAYS available. We may need to look deeply to uncover and resolve the deeper conflicts within. When our desires are clear, when our inner conflicts are resolved, our path to prosperity can be smooth and clear as well. -- Want to connect spiritually, grow personally and work with me directly?

124. Inner Masculine & Feminine
We all have masculine and feminine energy within us. These are universal archetypes that have nothing to do with gender. They are the complimentary structures that help us manage the physical and the metaphysical world.

Inner masculine and feminine balance creates a healthy relationship within ourselves emotionally, physically, financially and relationally.

121. F*ck The Rules
Rules, structure and cultural norms can be helpful, but they can also keep us small or limited. When we measure our success or model our behavior to meet the expectations of others, we may be ignoring our own deeper truth. It's fine to do what's expected of us, or what we think we "should" do, as long as it makes us happy. However, many people climb the ladder of external success to find that the ladder was against the wrong wall and they are living someone elses ideas of happiness.  Please follow me on Insight Timer! -- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

117. WTF Is God's Will?
What if we changed the word God to the word Good? How would it be to surrender to the highest good? Renee talks about distrusting the Divine and how surrender, willingness and openmindedness can be invaluable spiritual tools. Considering the possibility that there might be a different or even a better way to solve our problems than we might imagine, opens the door for new possibilities. Third Step Prayer God, I offer myself to Thee—to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy Will Always. Video of the Mandelbrot Set.

116. The Lie Of Unworthiness
Questioning our value or worth as a person is a soul level issue. Starting with Adam and Eve, humans have struggled with unworthiness or feeling that they are bad in some fundamental way that goes beyond thoughts or even experience. Challenging and transforming this lie of unworthiness is essential to our personal growth and development. Healing our negative core beliefs brings light into our inner darkness, cultivates compassion for ourselves and others, and elevates our life experience in powerful ways.

115. The Cauldron Of Relationship
Relationships can be a source of joy or a source of pain, but either way they call us to grow. Our friendships, family and love relationships all have one thing in common: us. When we can own 100% responsibility for the connections in our life, then we are in a place of power.  When we blame others for our life circumstances or wish that "they" would change, then we are disempowered. Because we always have the power to change and develop ourselves and usually our current circumstances are the perfect place to practice being different right now. Please follow me on Insight Timer!

114. Releasing Regret
There are many forms of regret; regret for things we have done, for things undone and remorse for things that have happened. Regret can suck our life energy and keep us focused on the past or on fantasy futures that remain unlived.

We are all a unique combination of brokenness and brilliance. In fact, often our strengths and our weaknesses are intertwined in complex, almost mysterious ways.  Knowing our gifts and our deficits is imperative for our well being.

112. Selfless
Narcissism and selflessness are opposite ends of the spectrum of how we relate to others and to ourselves. Selfishness is generally seen as a negative and being selfless as positive. However, there are healthy forms of selfishness and unhealthy or destructive ways of being selfless.  Here’s the info on my new Spiritual Experience Groups.  Each session will be 6 consecutive weeks, one hour zooms with a small group of 4-8 awesome people.  • Mondays 7am PST/10am EST/3pm UTC - Feb. 28 - April 4, 2022  • Tuesdays 11am PST/2pm EST/7pm UTC, March 1 - April 5, 2022  • Thursdays 4:30 PST/7:30 EST, Feb. 24 - March 31, 2022  • Fridays 3:30pm PST/6:30pm EST, Feb. 25 - April 1, 2022  The format of the groups will be to start with a short grounding meditation. Everyone will have time for a short check in to set their intentions for the days practice. I will be available for spiritual direction for each member, if they want input. Then we will do a 15 minute Shamanic journey or guided inner journey from the Allies & Demons work. The journeys happen in our own space, with our cameras off. After 15 minutes, we come back to the Zoom room and share our spiritual experience. End with another moment of silence. It's a simple but profound format for connection and self growth. Let me know if this is of interest and which time spot works for you. If this round doesn't work, but your interested in future groups, let me know best days and times and I'll do what I can to accommodate.  Group membership is by suggested donation. $25-$60/ week, prepaid. If you have financial need, let me know and we will work something out. Click here to learn more or sign up. Hope to see you there!

111. The Advanced Guide To Change
Looking for positive change in your life? Here's the breakdown of the four stages to change in any area of our lives: acceptance, action, chaos and resolution. Each stage has particular gifts and challenges. Moving into unknown territory can be exciting or terrifying depending upon our perspective and the process of personal growth can get derailed at many points along the path. Knowing the territory can be helpful in navigating change in life and allow us to flow with the natural process of evolution rather than resisting it.

110. Conflict, Creativity & Chaos
Chaos and conflict are often elements of creativity. Chaos is the element of the unknown that is a vital part of the creative process, but so is stability. Structure and chaos can be in conflict or they can compliment each other. Whether you are conflict avoidant or a conflict seeker, we all need some stability to compliment chaos or we create anarchy instead of novelty.   Explore the amazing transpersonal realms of spirit, nature and your own highest self through the ancient and powerful tools of Shamanism.

108. Underbeing
Underbeing is a concept from a little known 12 Step fellowship called Underearners Anonymous. Underbeing is when we don't bring our authentic self into the world. When we follow the external expectations of others, rather than our own deepest truth, we live an unfulfilled life. Our hopes, dreams and desires are a compass we can follow to our own souls journey. Between birth and death is time. How we spend our time determines the quality of our life. We have many, many choices. Renee offers some simple but powerful tools for becoming conscious of how we actually spend our time and some suggestions on how to make the shift from underbeing to pursuing our own goals and dreams.

107. The Fractal Nature Of Reality
Fractals are infinitely complex, never ending patterns that repeat on the smallest and the largest scales. These repetitive patterns create on-going feedback loops found in structures throughout nature and our human lives. Understanding the fractal nature of reality can give us tremendous perspective on our bodies, our culture and our relationship with the universe itself. This fractal perspective can give us some clear direction and perhaps even relieve us of some existential angst.

106. Releasing Toxic Relationships
Our uncomfortable feelings are connected to our deeper truth. When we have difficult feelings in relationship, change is called for. We always have 3 choices in relationship. We can accept what is. We can take action for change, or we can remove ourselves. Deciding what steps to take is our personal work in any situation. Do you have anyone in your life you resent? Feel drained by? Do you get anxious or dread connecting with someone, but maintain the relationship out of guilt or obligation? You are not alone. What to do with these toxic dynamics is the question.  Click to learn more about our new digital course and spiritual practice group with Intro To Shamanism: Lower World. -- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

105. Is Meditation Listening To God?
If prayer is talking to God, than meditation is listening. There are as many ways to meditate as there are people on the planet. Although many teachers will tell you there is a right and a wrong way to meditate, any time we are present, mindful and intending to experience life deeply, could be understood as meditation. This ancient practice of going inward has many benefits, and the process is simpler and more accessible than you might think.

102. Why We Suck At Receiving
Giving and receiving are like breathing in and breathing out, but most of us are out of balance. We either give too much and feel depleted and unappreciated or we take too much and become selfish or overly dependent. Most of us fall somewhere in the middle.  Healthy giving and healthy receiving are complimentary parts of the creative process in all areas of life. The cyclic giving-receiving dynamic nourishes us and gives us a sense of purpose, connection and meaning.   When we grow in our ability to give and receive in appropriate ways, we connect securely with the larger consciousness system and more deeply with the people in our lives.    Check out Anatomy of the Spirit, by Caroline Myss. I reference this book in this episode, if you want to learn more about the body, mind spirit connection and somatic psychology.  -- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

101. Inner Child Work & Emotional Self Care
How much time do we spend on our emotional self care? Most of our physical needs are met. We may have a healthy social life. Intellectual stimulation is easy to find. We may even have a spiritual practice. But few people spend time caring for their emotions. In fact, most of us don't even know what emotional self-care would look like. Inner child work is one of the simplest and most direct ways to heal and support ourselves emotionally. When we learn how to access our vulnerable, inner child parts, it can have profound impact on every other area of our life. -- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

99. Stop Wanting To See The Good In Everyone
If we don't develop discernment and honest appraisal of others, how will we know who to give our car keys? Who to invite in our bed? Who to turn and run away from? It's imperative to see the good in others, but it's also important to see what's bad, to recognize dysfunction and be fully aware of the darkness and destruction that possible in everyone.  Developing mature love and compassion in ourselves often creates the most fertile ground to help others grow and evolve in themselves as well. There is danger in focusing only on the potential good. We can live in denial about what's really real. Participating in the dysfunctional patterns of others keeps everyone stuck and may cause more harm than help. Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

98. Sacred Contracts
What if the relationships in our life, even the difficult ones, are agreements or contracts to help us grow and evolve? When we take this perspective, we step into personal responsibility and out of victimization or powerlessness. These sacred contracts or soul level agreements offer a potent way of working with love, connection and commitment and allow us the opportunity to consciously renegotiate these agreements for the benefit of everyone involved. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Working with ancestors and the dead is an ancient practice. Awareness of the unhealed dead or disembodied souls has long plagued and fascinated people. There are clear and helpful ways to work with the dead, both those who can help us and those who need our help. Renee talks about Buddhist, Shamanic and old world practices that can be learned and used in modern practice. No one gets out of here alive. We will all be touched by death. We will all die ourselves. Growing in our relationship with death and our own understanding of soul is important for our maturity and inner peace. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

95. Goddess Kali & The Fierce Feminine
The Hindu Goddess Kali is a powerful form of the fierce feminine. She cuts through illusion, ego and fear with her weapons of truth and wisdom. Some say we are living in the age of Kali, a time of great change. We are being called to let go of our old ways of being so that we can be transformed. Kali is known as the destroyer, but she is also an aspect of the Great Mother, the womb from which all form is born. She is a wild, naked, fearless warrior; severing our attachments and pettiness so that we can be truly free.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Intuition goes by many names; gut reaction, instinct, sixth sense, hunch. Cultivating these extra senses is part of our personal growth process.

We often ask, "Why?" when faced with difficulty, but why is often NOT a helpful question. Why questions look for causes, but don't usually provide solutions and can even be blaming or shaming.  There are much better questions to ask which will lead us to constructive actions for change. Whether talking to others or in our own internal dialog, asking more thoughtful, deepening questions is helpful skill to learn.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

90. Making Friends With Trauma
When an experience is too much to handle and the psyche is unable to process or integrate the event in a manageable way, trauma happens. In trauma, a part of the psyche gets almost stuck in the traumatic experience, frozen in psychological time. Our work is to bring these wounded parts of ourselves out of suffering and into present time. We learn to bring the power of unconditional love and compassion to our unresolved issues. We need to make friends with our trauma to find the healing and wholeness we seek. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Is your glass half empty or half full? Our perspective on ourselves and our life circumstances deeply influence our experience. Many of us suffer with an insatiable drive to do more, to be more, and to get more, trying in vain to find the fulfillment we seek. But acquiring money, relationships, power and possessions can never satisfy the "glass half empty" attitude. In fact, the only way to true fulfillment, to feeling like we are good enough exactly as we are, is to transform the never enough attitude itself.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

People naturally lean toward a desire for adventure or toward predictability and routine. We all fall somewhere on the risk-safety continuum and it can be helpful to value each of these perspectives as valid and helpful in their own way. In fact, whether we seek novelty or security, we can benefit from growing in our less developed side. A certain amount of both safety and risk is necessary for a balanced, healthy life.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

87. Create, Sustain, Destroy
Birth, life and death are an endless cycle found on all levels of material reality. Known in Hinduism as the trimurti, or the three forms of creation, sustenance and destruction. We often think of death as an ending, but the three forms are a continuum. They are a cycle without end. Birth of the new stands on the shoulders of the death of the old. Becoming conscious about where we are in these cycles in different areas of our lives can be very instructive about what to accept, what to change and what to let go of. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Having confidence in our own worth and value is the essence of self esteem. How others feel or think about us is important, but outside opinions often have nothing to do with how we feel about ourselves. Respect and trust are earned. We must earn our own self respect if we are to grow in maturity and character. How do we build this self esteem?

The desire to please people is different from people pleasing. One is a way we share love and spread kindness. The other is manipulative, controlling and based on fear.  There are many ways we can bring pleasure and joy into the lives of those we come into contact with. However, when we say or do what we think others want us to do and withhold our honest feelings, the results can be toxic to us and to our relationships.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Spirit, soul and ego are three main areas of personal development. Spiritual growth calls us into communion with the Universal Life Force, the God of our own understanding (or misunderstanding.) Soul work is about finding and fulfilling our individual purpose in this lifetime, bringing the gifts we were born to manifest into the larger system. Ego or personality self is the vehicle which moves us through ordinary reality of being human; work, relationships, family, society and how we organize within our small "s" self.  Spirit, soul and ego interact and inform each other in complex ways. At any given time we may be more focused on one area than the others as we grow and evolve throughout our lifetime. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Nature has much to teach us about when to grow and when to rest; when to focus outward and when to introspect.

As Within, so without. Our outer experience often correlates with our inner experience. It is powerful to notice that our relationship with our stuff can be a metaphor for our emotional, spiritual and relational life. The good new is that changing our external circumstances can affect change in our inner world as well. Life is an ongoing conversation with Source. Making space to listen and receive what the Universe wants to offer is an important part of the exchange. Organizing, releasing and letting go of what no longer serves us creates space for new, more nourishing circumstances to arrive and flourish. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

79. Reclaiming Lost Power
Personal Power can be lost, drained, stolen or given away. Personal power or life energy can also be reclaimed, regained and restored. In Spiritual Psi-Kology, we take the concept of power literally, as if it had a form or substance. Using the powerful tools of Shamanism, hypnotherapy and body-centered mindfulness, we can experience and work with power in direct ways that allow tremendous healing, renewal and empowerment unavailable through Western medical and psychological protocols.  Power can be lost through accident, trauma, abuse and neglect and codependent or dysfunctional relationships. From this perspective, we all suffer power loss in one form or another and the effects can be devastating. Conversely, restoring our systems to full power can be life changing.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.
