1. Journey To Your 100 Year Old Self

Spiritual Psi-Kology

1x
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.

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.

89. Never Enough
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.

88. The Biology of Risk
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.

God as father can be a limiting concept, or even a negative one if your experience with fatherhood was difficult or abusive. Exploring new, more meaningful or personal concepts of Source is part of our evolution and can call us to grow in surprising ways. Words are powerful and finding authentic or meaningful terms for Spirit can be both helpful and transformative.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

85. WTF Is Self Esteem?
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? Self esteem is built by doing "esteemable" acts.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

84. Dark Side of People Pleasing
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.

83. Spirit, Soul and Personality
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.

We are children of nature. Trusting the natural cycles and seasons of our bodies, minds, emotions and spirits can be profoundly grounding and empowering. As we discover and honor our own daily, weekly and yearly cycles, we live more fully and more authentically. Nature has much to teach us about when to grow and when to rest; when to focus outward and when to introspect. "There is a time to every season," as the Bible says, and learning to find and follow our own natural rhythms and seasons is an important part of health and balance in all areas of our lives. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Many of us try to moderate and manage our emotions. Feeling deeply is often considered a weakness in our culture. This is a mistake. When we make friends with our feelings, we have access to insights, intuition and information unavailable to our rational mind alone. Opening to our feelings strengthens our character and offers important ways to process our life experience. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

80. Making Room For God
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.

In fact, the deficits or dysfunction of our fathers can provide powerful opportunities to grow.  As we accept, forgive and understand the limitations of our caregivers, we can make empowered choices to care for ourselves and develop an internal system of authentic self love and integrity. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Most of us play either too big or too small in our lives. Becoming "right sized" is the hallmark of a healthy ego and allows us to function optimally. An over or under inflated sense of one's self causes twisted thinking that we are better or worse than others, more valuable or less valuable as a person. Having a balanced assessment of who and what we really are provides the life directing, soul affirming perspective of a mature ego.   --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

What does it mean to be conscious, unconscious or supra-conscious? Our level of consciousness is like a lens we see the world through. People are complicated and our unique algorithm of experience, outlook and personal development determine our consciousness. Our individual consciousness determines our life experience. If our worldview, or level of consciousness is one of fear we will have a very different perspective than if we view the world through the lens of love. The great news is that we can update our consciousness prescription and evolve into a new set of glasses.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Do we love our dog the same way we love our mother, or our friends? Often neediness, security and caretaking masquerade as love.  Love is an exchange. In it's most mature versions, love is not a feeling. Love is an action, an intention and way of interacting in the world. Growing in our abilities to give AND receive love is a lifelong challenge, but one of the most fulfilling we can have.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

When we view experiences as experiments and release judgement and worry, our whole attitude and outlook can change from one of fear to one of interest, hope, gratitude and novelty. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Spirit guides in their highest form resonate with love, compassion and have only our highest good in mind. Though we should take care, as there are many lower level energies moving in non-ordinary reality that are not very highly developed.  When traversing the transpersonal realms, it is wise to have our feet firmly grounded in higher realms to help us navigate the difficult terrain of human life and the spirit world.  Learn more about spirit guides in our FREE webinar on Shamanism, 5/25/21. Click here to find out more. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Words are powerful and many of us have a concept of the perfect mother unconsciously imbedded in our psyche that can be the source of both blame and shame if we aren't aware of it. Receiving and giving unconditional love is a nourishing human experience, but we may want to look to the Divine Feminine for the pure acceptance and care we seek, rather than to the fallible human we call mother.

When we experience events that seem to be too perfect or meaningful to be random, we are opened to the possibility or the mystery that there is more going on in life than meets the eye alone.  FREE Download : Ch. 1 and 1st Inner Journey of Renee’s book Allies & Demons: Working With Spirit For Power And Healing. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Renee talks about how our homes and our external living environments can be a metaphor for our inner world. Many of us try to change the outer world in hopes of finding the inner fulfillment and happiness we seek. But this is often the wrong direction. When we change ourselves inside first, then the outside changes are deeper and more lasting.

Becoming aware of this natural energy matching tendency, we can grow in the ability to hold our own and not be at the mercy of circumstances outside our control.   Renee discusses David Hawkins Map Of Consciousness, which organizes levels of energy from 0-1000. When we understand the different resonances our outlook and emotions have, we can bring our intention and our consciousness to help elevate our own life experience and the resonance of those we interact with.  Learn more about Rudolph Steiner or the work of Clairvision.

66. WTF Is Spiritual Psi-Kology?
Spiritual Psi-Kology works directly with the emotional, spiritual or body felt experience of a person using guided imagery, hypnotherapy, mindfulness and Shamanism. Western psychology operates primarily from a rational or intellectual perspective, which can be very helpful, but is limited. Each of these approaches are effective in different circumstances.  Renee talks about her decision to practice outside the scope of talk therapy and how many types of transpersonal psychology have been helpful in her personal path from addiction, depression and anxiety to health and wholeness. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

65. Demon of Depression
Facing depression is the heroes journey. We go into the cave of our own unconscious and heal, slay or expel the demon that is hoarding the treasure of our own authentic self. When we face our depression, we gather the priceless treasure of our own life energy and bring it into the world for the benefit of ourselves and those around us.  In Spiritual Psi-Kology, nothing lives in our psychic space without our permission. We may be shocked to realize that on some level our depression may work for us. It may be a twisted protective device or defensive structure that keeps us small and safe. We may have negative attachment to our own self hatred or self abuse. Depression can become part of our ego identity or it may live in the gap of suffering between who we think we should be and the truth, or the mystery, of who we really are.  The truth will set us free. Willingness to face our own true self is the light that dispels the darkness where the demon of depression festers. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

63. Joy Is A Source Of Power
Happiness often comes from the outside, but joy arises from within. We can cultivate joy in our lives through creativity, selfless service and random acts of kindness.  As William Shakespeare once said, "The joy is in the doing." From this perspective, joy is a verb. Renee describes how doing street art in the middle of the night became a way to manage emotional turmoil and transform her own sorrow into joy. Joy instructs us to ask what we can bring to life, rather than what we can get. When we focus on how we can make the world a better place, we discover the unlimited potential of joy as a source of power. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

The forces for love and the Universal Life Force, aka God, are infinitely generative and creative.  Tapping into the flow of life and moving into the unknown are imperative skills if we are to find the true joy and fulfillment most of us seek. However, many are trapped in fear and insecurity and remain slaves to perceived safety that may actually be causing more suffering than we are aware. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Our demons are our fears, dysfunctions and unresolved emotional issues. Our allies are our honesty, willingness and openmindedness as well as the wealth of human and spiritual help that is always available to us. Our allies grant us the courage and hope to be able to face our demons and perhaps even transform them, as garbage is transformed into compost under the right conditions.

58. Need vs. Love
It's easy to confuse neediness with love. Optimally, love is what we bring to a relationship and what we share within it. As adults it is empowering to be a whole person first, to fulfill our own needs rather than entering relationship hoping to be fulfilled. This doesn't mean that we don't give and receive from others. It means that we do better when we turn to the larger stream of life to fulfill us. It takes a village to support each of us and overdependence upon one person to fill our needs is a recipe for suffering.

The Divine Feminine connects us with important resources for fulfillment, growth and healing that are often under valued by our culture.  We all have masculine and feminine principles within us that work together to create a healthy, balanced person. Frequently we over value the masculine currents of intellect, power and material prosperity at the expense of the feminine currents of creativity, connection and emotional maturity.   The Sacred Feminine is easily accessible through the many Goddesses and aspects of divinity in female form throughout the world's great religions.

55. Take Aways From A 7-Day Fast
I'll try anything once, but I won't do a 7 day water fast again. Though I went in openminded and without expectations, my 7 day water fast was still surprising. It was a powerful experience and I'm still unpacking the take aways.  Fasting is an ancient practice with modern appeal for longevity and health. But fasting can clear more than just your digestive system. Retreating from regular life and making room spiritually, emotionally and energetically by not eating, provides a profound opportunity for growth, clarity and awareness of beliefs and issues that may go unnoticed in ordinary life.   Find out more about fasting from in the links below:  Fasting recommendations from USC School of Gerontology  National Institute On Aging Fasting and Calorie Restriction  Check out my funny, 10-minute video about our Death Valley water fast: Renee & Thor's 7-Day Water Fast Adventure  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Confrontation can be compassionate and empowering. Renee offers a simple formula for healthy confrontation which is effective and transformative. There are times to let things go and times to confront intentional negativity and harm. Learning to discern when to speak up and when to move on is part of our personal growth work.   The golden rule found in most spiritual and religious traditions directs us to treat others and we want to be treated. We also need to learn to treat ourselves with the same justice, love and conviction that we give to those we care for.

Sex, intimacy, love and desire are the engines that drive relationship and drive us crazy. We can have sex without intimacy and intimacy without sex, but many of us seek a blend of both. There are lots of reasons people have sex and many ways to express intimacy. Having open and loving, passionate and interesting connections can be as challenging as it is fulfilling. Navigating our own sexuality and ability to be close, honest and vulnerable with others is a lifetime adventure.

Many women model themselves after men when searching for success and self determination, but the true strength of the Divine Feminine has much to teach us about a different kind of strength and resilience.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

51. WTF Is Non-Duality?
Non-duality is the experience of the one-ness of all things. There is a ground of being underlying the duality of the material world. Duality is the pairs of opposites; day and night, love and hate, fire and water, peace and fear that create the dynamic tension of the everchanging and impermanent physical realm. Most major religions and many spiritual traditions point to non-duality as a path of peace.   There are many modern teachers of non-duality that share their insight and wisdom to raise our consciousness that we might transcend duality and find this peace ourselves. Renee gives an overview of this profound concept and shares some teachings about non-duality she has gathered along the way.  Check out these powerful spiritual masters, organizations and teachings for more info on non-duality:  Eckert Tolle - The Power Of Now  Adyashanti  Mooji  Rupert Spira  Paramahansa Yogananda The Self Realization Fellowship  The Law Of One  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Equanimity is loving detachment. This powerful, peaceful practice is one of the Four Immeasurables, Buddhist principles for healthy boundaries and happy relationships. The other three "Immeasurables" are loving-kindness, compassion and joy. These attitudes work as a unit and teach us how to show up in with our best intentions and let go of the results. With equanimity as our guide, we learn that having good boundaries is about knowing what is our responsibility and what is the responsibility of others to manage.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

49. Transforming Trauma
Trauma can absolutely be healed. In Spiritual Psychology, trauma is caused by the splitting or shattering of the self in an attempt to manage an overwhelming event or long term distress and not go crazy. From this perspective, trauma is actually a brilliant coping mechanism. Like a breaker switch trips to keep the house from burning down when there is an energy overload, the psyche can be reset and restored to power using the soul retrieval process. Change is difficult and there is a natural healing process that calls us to grow and evolve if we can submit ourselves to it in a healthy way. The natural grief process can apply to all life changes. The problem is that it is easy to get stuck and we may need help to move through difficulty and heal properly. The good news is that help is available if we are willing to receive it.

48. Karma And Family Of Origin
From a karmic perspective, our birth circumstances are not a coincidence. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, it can be empowering to consider that we might have been drawn to our family of origin as a template to show us where we need to evolve and heal on a soul level. When we can take responsibility for our life, we can move from a place of helplessness to hope. It is our decisions, choices and responses that determine the quality of our life rather that the situations from which we come. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

46. The Survival Guide For Sensitive People
Sensitivity is a superpower when we know how to manage it. We all have many extra senses that are generally considered intuition or instinct. Because our culture doesn't recognize experience that isn't testable in a lab, these other ways of knowing are usually unrecognized and underdeveloped. Renee talks about the risks of being unconscious about these sensitivities and the many advantages of using and cultivating these extra skills for the benefits of ourselves and others.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

45. Feeding The Gods: Sacrifice & The Wisdom Of Letting Go
Dissolving depression, letting go of grief and surrender to the circadian rhythms of the universe are important for growth and health. Sacrifice on a transpersonal level is more about releasing what no longer serves us than it is about virgins being devoured by Minotaurs. However, ancient myths have much to teach us about the wisdom of sacrifice, of "feeding the gods."   When we try to cheat the cyclical dynamics of birth, sustenance and death, that we are all subject to on this plane of existence, monstrous forms may arise and proliferate.  Renee talks about dissolving her own seasonal depression and looks at the myth of Theseus, The Minotaur and the Labyrinth and how we can avoid creating monsters in our own lives when we try to hold on to things that have passed their time. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

44. The Prostitute & Empowered Whore Archetype
We all prostitute ourselves. When we trade our integrity and inner truth for money, security, power or attention, that is our inner prostitute. Prostitution in this transpersonal sense has more to do with selling our worth and values than it does with selling sex. In fact for some, like the late Shannon Williams, being a whore may even be an empowering act of self expression and civil disobedience.  The prostitute, the victim, the wounded child and the saboteur are four shadow archetypes we all share. Archetypes are universal, inborn models of behaviors, or roles we play that influence human behavior. The concept of archetypes was introduced by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, who suggested that these universal forms were aspects of innate human knowledge passed down from our ancestors or existing as configurations of consciousness in the transpersonal realm. The motives that drive these powerful dynamics provide important information about where we need to grow and heal.  Carolyn Myss - Sacred Contracts and Your Archetypes Sex Worker Outreach Project (SWOP) The Sex Workers Outreach Project-USA is a national social justice network dedicated to the fundamental human rights of people involved in the sex trade and their communities, focusing on ending violence and stigma through education and advocacy. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

43. - 3d/5d & Spiritual Bypass
Spiritual bypass is when we use spirituality as a way to avoid our own unresolved emotional suffering or personal growth work. 3d and 5d are new terms for evolving consciousness out of the realm of duality and into the higher planes of non-duality and unified experience. Evolution is imperative but it is both easy and dangerous to evade or deny our own shadow when seeking the light. As long as we have a body, we have work to do and the path to enlightenment can bring us through sketchy territory if we are not constantly embracing our humanity.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

41. Kink And The Healthy Lover Archetype
The Lover archetype can be constructive and deeply healing or destructive and abusive. Masculine lover energy dictates much of our sensual experience of the world, going way beyond sex and relationship. We all carry masculine and feminine within us. We all have dominant and submissive or active and receptive properties. There is much to be learned from the kink community in how to work with dom/sub power dynamics in a healthy, conscious way, whether we plan to explore the world of kinky sexuality or not. Our mature and immature expression of lover energy, in romance, with family/friends and at work is often a mirror for our internal relationship with ourselves.   If you want to learn more about kink or healthy masculine archetypes:  Erobay: The Kink Community Calendar for Events and Education in The Bay Area  "King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine" by Robert Moore  and Douglas Gillette  "Warrior, Magician, Lover, King: A Guide To The Male Archetypes Updated For The 21st Century: A guide to men's archetypes, emotions, and the development of the mature masculine in the world today." by Rod Boothroyd --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

Archetypes of the wise king and the brave warrior are as valuable to women as they are to men. Healthy masculine energy provides courage and determination, discernment and vision for our lives. Unhealthy or underdeveloped masculine renders us cowards, victims, masochists or bullies. All humans are a balance of intellect and intuition, masculine and feminine.

My favorite acronyms for fear are Face Everything And Recover or Fuck Everything And Run. These describe to two ways most of us manage fear and anxiety in our lives; avoidance or constructive action. When we choose to turn toward our anxieties we grow, mature and heal the deeper issues driving our fears. Generally fear is past experience projecting itself into our future, ruining our present. Approaching fear as our teacher opens us to being our best adult self and to turn the love and compassion we offer to others back onto ourselves.  Click the link below for a powerful guided meditation for healing anxiety from my book Allies & Demons: Working With Spirit For Power And Healing: Inner Journey for Facing Our Fear  Little Girl Running From Her Shadow Video --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

28. The Inner Critic
Most people have an internal critic or negative self talk that is unhelpful or even harmful. Using the Transforming Demons Into Allies Process, we can get rid of this inner self criticism and update it with a more constructive, productive and helpful system.  Like regular housecleaning we need to get rid of what no longer serves us. Like updating our phone or desktop software, we need to continually update our internal emotional, social and intellectual operating systems to stay current in how we respond and process our life experiences.  Depossession and exorcism are ancient practices that have much more to offer than we might think. Spiritual Psychology has adapted safe and compassionate approach to negative energy extraction based on the Tibetan Buddhist practice called Chöd and the work of Llama Tsultrim Allione called Feeding Your Demons.  Click the link below to a guided meditation to transform your inner critic into an ally:  Inner Journey To Transform Your Inner Critic Into An Ally Support Spiritual Psychology Podcast on Patreon!

26. Facing Our Shadow
The collective collective shadow shadow of America is embodied in institutional racism and the legacy of slavery. Shadow, a term coined by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, is all the things that our ego self doesn't like. Individuals, organizations, and nations all have shadow. The Black Lives Matter protests are calling this shadow into the light. Carolyn Myss suggests that we all share four aspects of shadow; the victim, the saboteur, the wounded child and the prostitute. Owning shadow takes courage and humility, but integrating our individual and national shadow is an healthy process that makes us grow, mature and evolve. All light casts a shadow and the brighter the light, the darker the shadow. Depending on our willingness to face or avoid the truth, the more power for constructive or destructive power we hold.

24. The Law Of Attraction
The world is self organizing. Out of seeming chaos rise brand new forms and solutions. Emergence, synergy and attraction are universal laws that drive the infinitely creative force of evolution. Forget predictions and projections. The past is a terrible indicator for the future, unless we care to repeat it. Sometimes things need to fall apart to be put back together correctly, or the old way needs to dissolve and compost to nourish new growth. Never fear, we each have a part to play in this unfolding drama and there is much to hope for individually and collectively.   This podcast is inspired by Daniel Schmachtenberger's talk at Emergence Conference 2016.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

21. The Hero's Journey
Growing on a soul level is our work in this lifetime and the hero’s journey is like an instruction manual for how to do it well. In the traditional hero’s journey, there is a terrible demon or dragon ravaging the countryside. The hero goes on a quest to save the village. He challenges his own imitations, slays the dragon and brings back the treasure which the beast has stolen. He returns the treasure to the village for the benefit of everyone and becomes a hero. Through the work of Spiritual Psychology we learn to become our own hero or heroine. Taken as a map for our own inner experience, each aspect of the hero’s journey represents a part of ourselves. The dragon is our presenting problems. The village is our life circumstance. The hero or heroine is us. How is the pandemic calling each of us to grow individually? Is there a collective hero's journey for the world culture, with Covid-19 as the dragon calling us to face our fears and change? --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

19. Animism: Life Is A Verb
Life is a verb, a great cosmic dance. Everything in the material world is made of consciousness. More than that, everything has consciousness. This is the foundation of animism. The life force permeates all of creation. When we experience life as a conversation with all that we encounter, our outlook and our experience of people, places and things changes radically from separation and isolation to connection and inclusion.

Change is a challenge, but also an opportunity for something new. On the other side of Covid-19, will we move into the pregnant possibility of the unknown? Or, attempt to return to "life as usual," even if it doesn't work for us anymore? We are being called to grow individually and collectively. We each have a part to play in co-creating our post-pandemic world. This is an opportunity we may not want to miss.

16. The Problem With Empathy
Is it OK to be peaceful or even happy, when people in the world are suffering? Should we feel guilty about our good fortune in the face of another’s pain? Hiding what’s good in our lives so others won’t feel bad is not helpful.  Renee talks about the pitfalls of empathy, the power of compassion and the complexity of karma. Each person has their own unique journey on a soul level. While it’s important and even imperative to have compassion for the suffering of others, if we move too deeply into empathy then we lose our own ground.  We can get stuck in projecting our ideas of suffering onto others and get pulled out of our own power. Then we’re rendered incapable of being genuinely helpful to those in need.  --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

The very beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic spawned a culture of fear. Many people experienced a level of panic and angst that was and is excruciating. Being a sensitive person has benefits and risks. The upside is compassion, intuition and deep awareness. The downside is unconsciously absorbing the emotions and energy of others.  Renee talks the concept of energy matching and how we can protect ourselves on a spiritual and emotional level and redirect our fears into positive, constructive action using the principle of transmutation. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

11. Good Enough For God
The grace of God or connection with the Universal Life Force is always available to us - exactly where we are right now. It is only in being open, honest and authentic that we are most able to receive. Culture, parents and religion might teach us that we need to prepare ourselves to meet the Divine by acting in ways that others feel are "appropriate." The idea of needing to be different, better or appropriate before approaching God is not only damaging and destructive - it is a lie.  Higher Consciousness seeks connection with us constantly. Each moment we breath in and breath out we are in conversation with the Life Energy that is our true nature.  Conscious connection with Divinity is most available to us when we are vulnerable and able to take it in. No preparation needed. We are always good enough for God. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

December is the darkest time of the year. I explore the value and gifts that darkness holds. Darkness on the physical plane makes many of us depressed, but it can also be a time of wisdom and going inward. Darkness can also be a metaphor in our lives, the cycles of nature have much to teach us about how to live and how to let go. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

4. Feed Your Demons, Dissolving Self Judgement.
This powerful practice is like an update to your own internal operating system, a personal IOS update. Most people suffer from their own self criticism. For some self judgement is an annoyance, for others it is a terrible inner voice, for some the inner critic is a relentless inner abuser that can drive them to deep depression and suicidal dispair.  This simple but powerful Tibetan Buddhist practice called Transforming Demons Into Allies is remarkably effective in transforming negativity into a useful, life affirming resource. The guided meditation in this podcast is based on the work called Feeding Your Demons developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione, a modern female Buddhist teacher and founder of Tara Mandala.  This work can change your life from the inside out. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.

2. Journey To A Safe And Sacred Place In Nature
Simple, relaxing, centering, this short guided meditation leads to a place of pure consciousness that has only our highest good in mind. This inner journey is the first step into the world of Spiritual Psychology. For many people nature provides an easy access to Universal Source and our own Highest Self. This inner journey can be a first step through the gateway to higher consciousness and personal growth.  Spiritual Psychology uses your own active imagination as the vehicle for spiritual, emotional and mental liberation and healing. When we integrate the non-rational realm of emotion, felt sense and experience with present day awareness, we are free of past trauma and fear of the future. We are empowered to live fully in the only moment that matter, right now. When we open our mind in this way, we experience the connectedness of all things and know that we are truly part of a larger whole. We are not alone. --- Rate, Review & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts.
