Radio Show: Journey to Adoption with Kris Swanson

Journey to Adoption with guest Kris Swanson 11-25-13

Kris Swanson

What happens when you find you are ready to start a family and you don’t have a partner? You either deal with disappointment or learn to get creative. Join me as I speak with my dear friend and adoptive single parent Kris Swanson.

As a speech pathologist, Kris had spent years working with children who have special needs. She knew she had the love and patience to parent. She also knew she had the background to help a child in need.

Learn about the journey she took to find the son she already knew in her heart. She just hadn’t met him yet. From seeing his picture in a “catalog” to the 18-month process of forms and interviews to the life altering trip to China on her journey to motherhood.

Radio Show: Triumph Over Your Challenges with Helen Woo

Triumph Over Your Challenges with guest Helen Woo 11-18-2013

Helen Woo

Join Lessons in Joyful Living Radio with Kimberly Rinaldi as she speaks with radio talk show host and author Helen Woo.

Helen Woo was born to a traditional Chinese family who immigrated to America. Throughout her life, she has overcome numerous challenges including self-esteem issues, depression, mental and physical abuse, betrayal and drug addiction. Now, as a single mother, Helen feels her life is really just beginning. She is here to share her success stories, and encourages you to flourish by making positive changes in your life. After all, you have a success story in you, too!

Part of Helen’s mission in life is to help others triumph over their challenges. Among her topics, Helen uses “Self-Aid” to help with self-esteem, abuse, depression, addiction, betrayal, and letting go of the anger and resentment (the baggage) in your life. Recently, one of Helen’s favorite speech topics is: Is laughter the best medicine?

As host of a weekly radio talk show called “Self Aid Success Stories,” Helen is inspiring listeners to laugh a little, and reminding them that all challenges can be conquered, starting with “Self-Aid” (self-help). She has recently been published in Wake Up Women’s latest book: “Be You ~ Spread Your Wings and Fly” with her emotional story, “I am Flying High and I am Here to Flourish.”

Radio Show: Past Life Regression

Past Lives? Seriously, You Don’t Even Have to Believe 11-04-13

Join Lessons in Joyful Living Radio with Kimberly Rinaldi as she speaks about past life regression. She discusses how past life regression therapy is useful to our lives.

I cannot tell you whether or not to believe. I can only tell you that the concept is not a new one. In fact, it has been around for millennia. The major religions and cultures who embrace a belief in reincarnation include: Hindus, Buddhists, factions of Shiite Muslims, Hasidic Jews, Gnostic Christians, many West African tribes and Native Americans and Inuit. Even today in our very own American culture nearly 30% of the population has a belief system that includes reincarnation or past lives.

I offer to you past life regression as a means of exploring the possibilities. Explore your relationships, your history, your faith and your identity. You do not even have to believe to obtain healing benefits from this therapy.

If you believe in past lives, then you understand we are spiritual beings having a human experience and we access our spiritual memories. If you do not believe in past lives I offer these alternate explanations:

1. We access the Collective Unconscious as defined by Carl Jung, a Swiss Psychiatrist who put forth a theory that there exists a universal human consciousness which holds the collective memories, experiences and wisdom of the human race of which people are able to tap.

2. We access Genetic Memory, the theory that our DNA holds the wisdom and memories of our ancestors.

3. We access our own Subconscious Mind which uses our imagination and metaphors to provide direction, insight and answers to serve our higher self.

So if you believe, then great, but if not, perhaps one of the alternate explanations resonates as a truth for you. Whatever the case, Past Life Regression can make an amazing impact in your growth and understanding of this life.

Past Life Regression therapy is useful in …

– Bringing forth latent talents
– Expanding your sense of purpose
– Resolving fears & phobias
– Resolving sleeplessness
– Resolving stress
– Resolving anxiety and/or depression
– Grief and bereavement
– Career guidance
– Pain relief and release
– Weight loss
– Enhancing relationships
– Fostering forgiveness
– Many other healing modalities
