Livin' on the edge...baby! Max is in NYC and we cover his entire trip as this is his first time in the city!

In this special holiday podcast, I ask the central question: Are You Peace on Earth? We live in an externalized society where everyone seeks peace but fails to find it. We fight, we strive and we even go to war, chasing that ever-elusive desire for "Peace on Earth." However, true peace begins in our hearts. Listen in to my podcast that breaks down the meaning of peace and invites you to experience it for yourself. Be sure to stay tuned till the end of this podcast. You'll want to meet a host of listeners and friends who share their holiday wishes with you! #PeaceOnEarth #Holidays #Happiness #NewYear

Freak out! Freak out! It’s easy to get caught up in stereotypes, those widely held but preconceived notions we use to categorize people or ideas into fixed boxes. Stereotypes provide us with easy ways to identify each other and communicate in general terms, but they also contain a downside. When improperly applied, they cause us to limit our understanding of others and run the risk of having others limit their understanding of us. We often find ourselves assimilating into one group, culture, ideology, religion or philosophy. We enjoy being part of a clan or associated with like-minded or familiar groups. However, without opening ourselves to inquiry and generous reflection, we can sometimes wrongly assume that one member of a group is exactly like another. In this podcast, I share two ways in which I experienced the use of stereotypes in my own life. May they help you explore your own thoughts, attitudes and belief systems. Doing so may cause you to open the doors of light of your own identity plus revisit notions you’ve held concerning other people’s identities. Then, listen in to Bryan Rivera from the Bronx, NY share what makes him happy from the inside out, too. #Stereotyping #Labeling #PoliticalCorrectness #Happiness #EmotionalIntelligence #Culture

If you're an artist or an entrepreneur and you are living off your art/business, you know what uncertainty is, and many times I am sure you hit the wall: will you quit? Or dust yourself off and go at it again? You know...shifting sands melting underneath your feet...Linda Ferguson had that experience.
How often have we asked ourselves, “Why can’t I be a better person, more loving, more forgiving, practicing my spirituality on a daily basis?.” And yet we can’t seem to be able to sustain these feelings for very long. Many have had the wake-up call but struggle to bring spiritual beliefs and practices into their daily live. Not able to spend a few years away from it all to sort things out in silence, most of us deal with the daily challenges of work, family, emotional pain, and our own imperfections, struggling to make a spiritual life around “real” life. Dr. Linda Ferguson understands the difficulties in trying to steer through the daily stresses and challenges and, in her new book Staying Grounded in Shifting Sand; she presents a guidebook to help you transform your life permanently.
Staying Grounded provides practical advice on living a spiritual life in the modern world with insightful stories and teachings that support making that transformation possible. Starting with the Foundation, the author defines a spiritual journey and how it can expand the soul. She discusses the daily practice of mindfulness and its importance in opening us up to our soul journey. When understood and practiced fully, spiritual love opens our hearts to a continuous stream of harmony and peace, helping us to overcome our fears. And, perhaps most importantly, understanding and accepting our darker side, or “embracing the shadow,” allows us to accept ourselves and to overcome the pain and grief that we have experienced in our lives. Through these practices we can affirm our Divine Essence.
The second section of the book is the Application— or as the author calls it—Joy to the World! This section offers ways to address, on a daily basis, the challenges of relationships, work, money, power, and sexuality, without losing your spiritual center. The ability to take all that you have learned and apply it to real life situations is both invaluable and transformational. The final chapter introduces us to a method developed by the author—Transformational Empowerment™, a six step process that is built on three fundamental practices—Faith, Commitment, and Gratitude. These steps allows the seeker to more effectively move past self-limiting beliefs and fears in order to live with Personal Mastery on a daily basis. Each chapter is followed by exercises that can be done immediately, allowing the reader insight into why they respond to situations in negative ways and how they can change their learned reactions.
Staying Grounded in Shifting Sand presents a variety of spiritual perspectives on the pursuit of the individual soul journey. Drawing on the traditions of Christianity, Buddhism, Sufism, Hinduism and other spiritual beliefs the book dwells on the common thread that runs through all, the power of the heart, and how to prepare it for a greater and deeper connection to our world. Love is within us to be given freely and without judgment and flows around us to connect with the Divine Essence. Staying Grounded in Shifting Sand is transforming, teaching how to stay on the spiritual path while navigating the physical world and the shifting sand of daily living.
Linda J. Ferguson, PhD, is the author of Path for Greatness: Work as Spiritual Service, and Staying Grounded in Shifting Sand, and numerous articles. She writes a weekly blog on spirituality and work reaching more than 5,000 readers. Dr. Ferguson has traveled nationally and internationally to conduct workshops and presentations.

Fifteen years into her career as an attorney, Allison was forced to accept that she was an ad-dict. But it wasn’t work, drugs, alcohol, or even gambling that she was hooked on; it was certainty. Every moment of her life, Allison desperately sought to know or predict what would happen next, trapping her in a spiral of anxiety, doubt and fear. She only found hope and freedom when she dis-covered the life-altering mindset of the concept of Maybe.
Allison’s new book reveals how empowering this belief became to her and how dramatically it has improved her life and outlook. She details how, by accepting the “truths” of Maybe, we can reduce the stress and worry in our lives and open the doors to hope and possibility. Whether one has just lost a job or is dealing with concerns about health, money, or relationships, The Gift of Maybe provides the tools needed to cope with these life experiences. Topics covered include:
Reducing stress and anxiety
Creating more opportunities in life
Viewing uncertainty as a place of hope
Minimizing self-doubt as an obstacle to moving forward
Finding joy in the moment instead of worrying about the future
