    "CleftCast" ... Stop The Isolation Now

    in Health

    How many individuals with cleft and craniofacial anomalies are told, either directly or indirectly, to "get out of the way" or "I wish you'd never been born?" Maybe a few around the world; maybe a lot. That and many other forms of discounting people for the truly wonderful, kind and compassionate individuals that lie beneath the outer look can lead to isolation. Host Joe Rutland talks about how powerful, toxic and dangerous isolating from people, communities and life can be. He'll discuss the subtle difference between isolation, loneliness and solitude. Also, what does isolation look like to you? This, and much more, will be discussed on this week's "CleftCast."

    Alien: Isolation is the newest Alien game to hit shelves, and with the Alien franchise having a shitty track record when it comes to videogames, we proceeded cautiously. We took control of Amanda Ripley (Ellen Ripley's daughter) and made her traverse dark hallways full of baddies, from androids to face huggers! But let's not forget the biggest threat: A full-grown Alien! Join us as we dissect what could be the scariest game we've played yet. All aboard the Sevastopol!

    Love Can I Live Truly Without It?

    in Self Help

    Love seems to be the only four letter word that has the power to both heal and harm. Now I've heard it said that "Love don't hurt ". That's not exactly true. Love has many levels and applications. And people that never love don't get hurt,but they're not living either. How we walk that fine line between total bitch and utter doormat?


    Identify what you're looking for in a relationship 


    Have boundaries not walls


    Drop the fairytale 


    Embrace heartbreak


    Define what love is to you and check that against reality 


    Know your worth 


    LOVE IS NOT SE


    Love how you look


    Tell the media to fuck off

    Special Guest: Andrea Owen of Your Kick Ass Life Discusses Isolation

    in Lifestyle

    Do you find yourself mistaking isolation for strength? This is a common pattern among people in active addiction and the habit can persist into recovery. There is a saying in recovery rooms which states, “Addiction is the only disease that tells you that you are alright.”, so when we isolate, we are putting our recovery at risk.


    On this episode of The Bubble Hour we discuss the issue of isolation with Andrea Owen, certified life coach and author of “52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life”.

But do we really believe it?  Will that delicious pound cake become part of your hips?  Will that sirloin steak become part of your feet?  We are on a crash course with our health in the US and so much of what ails us can be averted by making healthier food choices. Children and teens are experiencing the effects of this crash course in much the same way as adults.

    The Indigo Journals

    in Spirituality

    Yol Swan is a spiritual counselor and coach with degrees in English literature, music and homeopathy who has taken the understanding of the soul and the wounded Feminine to new cosmic depths in her new book, The Indigo Journals: Spiritual Healing For Indigo Adults & Other Feminine Souls. 


    Born in Mexico to intellectual parents and surrounded by a blend of Shamanic cultures, she is a modern seer who perceives life as energy and is highly sensitive to other dimensions. She began channeling spiritual messages in her teens and later spent many years in psychoanalysis, which launched her into a deep exploration of Divine Consciousness during a 3-year retreat in almost complete isolation.


    First initiated as a Buddhist nun by a liberated master from Thailand and then into a path of meditation and mantra by enlightened Hindu teachers, her life is filled with mystical experiences, unusual encounters, and profound insights into the power and workings of the mind.


    A painful divorce brought up memories of Atlantis and revelations of the distorted Feminine, as well as the recognition of being an Indigo adult. This led her to a deeper exploration of the soul and a soul typology based on the cosmic interplay of the Feminine and Masculine,raising a new paradigm to explain essential differences between humans and the polarized world resulting from them.


    With a practical system of spiritual healing and energy management developed over more than 30 years, she helps clients around the world to create an empowering life or businessthey love, in alignment with their soul. She currently lives in the mountains of Western North Carolina. To learn more about her visit: SoulGuidedCoach.com or YolSwan.com.

    ISOLATION - Lost inside myself - Hosted by Craig Sicilia

    in Social Networking

    ISOLATION - LOST INSIDE MYSELF


    Hosted by Craig Sicilia


    Lost Inside Myself: I know I am not the only one who feels like they’re in a bubble.  The bubble of life I can see out of my bubble but i am imprisoned inside of it.  Sentenced to watch life happen but  cannot touch it, only watch it pass us by. 


    As well no one can get inside our bubble.  Maybe we are all waiting for a bubble master, someone who can get inside the bubble with us and maybe together we can break a hole in this bubble that has become a prison that keeps us from being an active participant in our own life’s. 


    Unlike Houdini we are stuck and as the years and decades go by the walls to the bubble get thicker and harder to break free from.  Till we become institutionalized to our bubble, which is where our bubble is becomes the only home we know or can remember.  We fight to stay inside our bubble.


    LET US BREAK FREE FROM OUR BUBBLE'S BEFORE IT'S TO LATE
