#212 Wendy Darling Create Your Miraculous Life: It’s Never Too Late

October 19, 2021 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes  

My very special guest today: Wendy Darling is the founder of the Miraculous Living Institute, a personal and professional growth organization.

In our conversation today Wendy and I plan to talk about how to overcome the restrictive notions of thinking that “it’s too late for me create the life I want.” Surprisingly this limiting idea not only applies to those who are growing old. I know people in their 30’s and 40’s that feel the same way. And Wendy is here to help.

Wendy writes: “I know what it’s like to keep trying to “make” life work. I know what it’s like to feel empty and lonely. I know what it’s like to run out of steam, wondering if my dreams were ever going to come true. I cannot even imagine how much ice cream, dark chocolate, and boxes of Kleenex I’ve used throughout the years.”

Wendy knows what it’s like to lose confidence in yourself and she offers very practical advice on how to overcome.

With that let’s enjoy our time together with Wendy Darling.

Do Nothing… and Then Rest

October 16, 2021 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward.” Spanish Proverb

Pam and I recently returned from holiday in Spain. The proverb above is Spain, so famous for afternoon siestas. In my opinion, this practice betrays an age-old yet very sophisticated understanding of the richness of a life that is not focused on work. For many Spaniards work is something “you do,” not someone “you are.”

October 13, 2021 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Today my guest, Faith Elicia, and I talk largely about the secret life of those caught in an addictive trap, especially the trap of food and eating disorders.

Although Faith’s book, Do You See What I See, is focused on eating disorders, Faith is keen to point out that eating disorder in but another in the long line of addictions facing millions of people in the USA today.

Faith talks about how addictions are often inherited or learned from parents and the way we were raised. In grossly dysfunctional families, many children have a very difficult time finding value in the worth as a person.

Faith puts it this way: I need you to believe in me because I can’t believe in myself. Gaining self-confidence and self-worth are essential for breaking the addictive cycle.

Join me in this thoughtful and engaging chat with Faith Elicia and learn incredibly helpful insights about living a fulfilled life.

Show Notes  

On today’s show my guest is Leonard Perlmutter, philosopher and spiritual meditation instructor. Leonard’s latest book is titled Your Conscience. It is a most insightful book about the Four Functions of the mind and how The Conscience is the deciding mechanism for our Ego, our Unconscious, and our Senses.

In this philosophical, yet very practical, discussion Leonard (also known as  Ram Dev) explains to me the power of conscience to guide us to make the best choices in our lives.

Leonard offers practical ideas about the mind that I have never thought of. How fun to learn.

Enjoy and learn with me in this thoughtful discussion with Leonard Perlmutter.
