Joyful Journey

Summary: If you are a leader, be it a leader of self or a leader of many, who strives to be a force for good in the world, or if you are someone who is simply uncertain about what you really want and why it matters, then this podcast is for you! The Joyful Journey Podcast is about finding clarity about who we choose to be and the life we want to live. It’s about tapping into our inner wisdom and accessing our highest selves so we make choices that are aligned with who we are and what matters most to us. By accessing our highest selves we also make choices that are best for our families, our communities and the organizations we represent. Perhaps most important of all, by learning to tap into inner wisdom and access our highest self, we raise our vibration, unleash a great joy and heighten the collective consciousness. That, my friends, is world changing and it all starts with you and me! Welcome to the Joyful Journey Podcast.

 Compassion: The Way Through Pain & Suffering | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 10:42

In today’s episode, we talk about compassion as the path through pain and suffering that leads to joy. By showing compassion and doing small acts of kindness you bring others joy and in so doing you feed your own joy and ease your pain. The Dalai Lama has a beautiful term for this - he calls it the “virtuous cycle.” He says, ”the more we turn to others, the more joy we experience, and the more joy we experience the more joy we can bring to others.” Please note that this episode ends with a short guided meditation that will help deepen your compassion for yourself and others. Make sure you are in a safe place to listen to the meditation, or put this episode on pause at the appropriate point and come back to it later.

You find that clarity, of course, by tuning into your soul's voice.

 Into the Silence | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 12:24

One of the key messages for this podcast is to step into nature by yourself to find the stillness and silence so you can hear and be guided by your soul's voice. Something I discovered though, is that many are deeply uncomfortable with silence.

In the silence, we discover our strength, find the answers we are looking for and awaken.

 Quieting the Monkey Brain on the Journey to Enlightenment | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 11:22

Did you know that only 3% of the world’s population is dancing around ‘enlightenment’ as a way of being?That's according to Alan Davidson, the best selling author of the multi award winning book, Body Brilliance: Mastering Your Five Vital Intelligences. He claims that as the number of enlightened people grows another 3 or 4% the problems that plague humanity now will dramatically shift. "As 10% of the world’s population shifts into full enlightened consciousness,” he says “a tipping point of transformation will make life on earth a very different experience.” In today’s episode we talk about how we can play a role in raising the collective conscious by learning to quiet the monkey brain and listen to our soul voice. I argue that the way to enlightenment is on a path through the forest.
