Call in to speak with the host
I talked with Lidia Frederico about her book. We talked about dealing with fear. I discussed my irrational fears, including the fears that I will not be able to turn my Ph.D. into a career, that my wife will find a better man and leave me, that I will not be able to create a career as a radio host and writer. Lidia gave instructions about how to eliminate these irrational fears by killing them with kindness and a glass of water. You must face your fears and love them because it is only by embracing them that they disappear. She advised listeners to designate a glass for holding water to absorb negative, fear-based energies surrounding us. You designate a glass for holding water and use only that glass. You then bless the glass by invoking an archangel. You let the water sit next to you throughout the day and allow it to collect all the negative energies around you. At the end of the day you flush the water down the toilet, pour it down a sink, or dispose of it in some other way so that you can put new water in the next day. She led a guided meditation about how to clear the energies of fear in our lives.
Finally, I talked about rational fears based on expectations that we don't think we can live up to, including the expectation of being perfect in any way. The only way to deal with rational fears is to accept miracles into your life. I played a clip from Gregg Braden on the science of miracles and then discussed the miracles I experienced at the very beginning of my spiritual path.
It's good to talk.
