    Are you connected to the infinite wisdom of The Universe?

    in Spirituality

    On this weeks episode of Soulistic, Mindy and Rene will be discussing the Crown Chakra (Sahasrana Chakra), also known as the 7th Chakra ~ this is the Chakra that connects you to the Universal Life Energy, Source and Higher Conscious. It is through the Crown Chakra that you receive infinite wisdom, spiritual connection and the mystical oneness with everyone and everything.

    When your Crown Chakra is in balance you will feel connected to everyone and everthing, to all that is. You'll be more open minded and have greater understanding and compassion for all nature and mankind, a greater sense of Oneness.  You will have more flow in your life, things will be easier and you will see the wisdom in your past experiences and in your present life. 

    You will be connected to the source of all life and will be able to store more of this Universal Energy in all your Chakras. You may develop Clair-cognizance skills when this Chakra is opened.

    "Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquillity and happiness we all seek." ~ Dalai Lama

    Join us this Thursday at 8:30pm Eastern!  Call in with questions or comments, we'd love to have you join in the discussion!!!

    Keep it Real, Keep it Rural

    Lorraine Lewandrowski

    Lorraine Lewandrowski is a lawyer and a dairy farmer in Herkimer County, New York. She has lots to say about dairy farms, the small farmer, and is happy to share some of her thoughts on why organic might not always be what it's cracked up to be. Here's a quote from an article she wrote called Small Dairies and the Big Apple: "I urge farmers and ranchers not to rely totally on traditional farm organizations to speak for them. Take a few friends and a day to go into the heart of your nearest Big City to speak to 'food movement" groups. Be yourself, talk to people with respect, and find out what is on people's minds. Engage in social media that is fast and easy, like Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and others." How did I find Lorraine one might ask? She called me out on Twitter. This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.

In 2010, she was given the opportunity to work with the Panera Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Panera Bread, in their Cares Cafes of Shared Responsibility.  Over the past 3 years, she has developed programming for their cafes dealing with dignity, shared responsibility, food insecurity, and de-escalation.

    Aside from her work with Panera Cares, JoAnn has begun development on a new program for youth.  The EYES Program (Engaging Youth Encouraging Service) takes a shared responsibility approach to education and is an interdisciplinary education model that connects students to the environment, their community and the role of service in the community.  It promotes accountability, stewardship, and the value of meaningful work.

    Citizens v. Ibredrola and The Deal in Denmark

    in Environment

    Citizens v. Iberdrola Hardscrabble Wind Farm   Sixty-three Herkimer County residents have come together to fight the wind turbines in their neighborhood. Many families have experienced severe, debilitating health effects and their property values have decreased.   We will hear from Melody Scalfone and Jeff DeFrancisco --the attorneys suing Iberdrola and the wind industry's acoustician.   This complaint filed in the New York Supreme Court details the specific impacts claimed by each plaintiff in regard to Iberdrola's Hardscrabble wind energy facility, a 74 megawatt power project that went on line in early 2011. The complaint includes a loss of enjoyment of outside activities on their land, and inability to open windows due to noise; some include loss of income due to noise (including as a voice teacher), and some note behavior changes in domestic and wild animals.   Lisa and Harley interviewed Peter Skeel Hjorth about the situation in Denmark.  Denmark is the home of Vestas and often the windies cite Denmark as being a prime example of the perfection of wind power.  ”No one ever complains of problems there…” Peter Hjorth helped us to understand the reality of the situation there and we hope you will learn a lot by tuning in and listening to the interview.   Peter is a journalist and the author of OCCUPIED BY WIND: The drawbacks of a green industry.  He serves as the official Scandinavian spokesperson for European Platform Against Wind (EPAW)

    Using the Energy of Crystals to Heighten Awareness

    in Energy

    Please join me on Monday, February 18 (President's Day) for a one hour discussion about crystals and gems.
    Through the generosity of the universe, and due to the passing of a partner, crystal healer and dear friend, we inherited a beautiful and powerful crystal, mineral and gem collection, and the energy in our home has not been the same since.  I have spent countless hours trying to identify what each stone is and what it means energetically.  What I've come to understand is that although each stone holds a particular frequency, how that frequency resonates with each of us is different.  One person may love Tourmaline, but another person may find it too grounding.  Or someone may lose all their grounding with a Herkimer diamond, while it may help someone else connect with their higher self.  Everyone has a different experience.
    My intention for this show is to share what I've learned about the energy of stones, as well as open the phone lines to those who want to call in to ether ask a question, or share their own knowledge.  Learning about the stone and mineral kingdom is a lifelong adventure, and no matter how much one studies, there is ALWAYS something more to learn.
    The call in number is 347-884-8943.
