    CUTV News Radio spotlights Sangita Patel of Embrace Your Inner Self

    in Health

    Princeton Junction, NJ – We are all born healers. If we can bring our energy into balance, our body will heal itself.


    Sangita Patel is the founder of the Global Organization of Self-Healing, where she guides individuals to embrace their inner self and awaken their natural ability to heal physically as well as emotionally.


    “Once you embrace your inner child that’s when magic happens,” says Sangita. “When you bring your focus toward your inner-self, your health, wealth and relationships improve in an instant.”


    According to Sangita, there is a compilation of emotions stored from throughout your life attached to your pain. By placing the spotlight on your inner child, Sangita helps you to acknowledge and release these emotions.


    Sangita first began her healing journey 27 years ago following her car accident in India. After being hospitalized for nine months, Sangita would endure another 17 years of surgeries to reassemble her legs.


    “After the accident my whole life shifted and a whole new phase of my life started,” recalls Sangita. “I was emotionally and physically damaged. Finally I asked for help. Please God, help me heal without needles and surgeries.”


    Soon after, Sangita met with a Qigong Master. Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice of aligning body, breath, and mind to cultivate and balance your life energy. Using a combination Qigong and emotional freedom technique, or EFT, to release the stuffed emotions, Sangita was able to create a holistic toolbox. Though today one of her legs may be a little shorter than the other, Sangita says she has her life back. She hopes to pass her knowledge and experience on to others.

    Former WWE/TNA Star Trevor Murdoch joins us live Tonight!!!

    in Wrestling

    Murdoch’s road to the ring began in tiny Fredericktown, Mo., a town of fewer than 4,000 people in the Ozark Mountains. He was a wrestling fan almost from the beginning. Murdoch grew up on the Von Erichs and ‘Gentleman’ Chris Adams. He loved how they competed in the ring and controlled that crowd, how they were able to bring them up and back down. After high school, he planned on joining the Marines, but instead went into the Job Corps and became a certified welder. Before long, he found himself in Athens, Ga., building railroad cars. He soon came back to Missouri, where his brother was working with a small independent wrestling organization. Murdoch finally had his opportunity to step in the ring.Through his work on the Missouri independents, Murdoch came into contact with WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race, who was opening his own wrestling school in Eldon, Mo. Murdoch ended up being one of the first two students to join Race’s camp, which was an interesting feeling for him. Murdoch got the chance to fine-tune his skills in the ring while Race figured out what the best curriculum was for teaching future classes. The burly grappler recalls six- and seven-day-a-week training with calisthenics, matches and learning a move or two from “Handsome” Harley. That advice stuck with Murdoch as he traveled to Japan, spending six months in Pro Wrestling NOAH’s dojo. He endured grueling training that included 500 squats, 300 push-ups, extended neck bridging sessions, in-ring drills and more. He didn’t know it at the time, but this excursion would change his life the next time Race sent him to Raw.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights author Colleen Cole

    in Books

    Porters Lake, Nova Scotia – In Swahili, the word “Umoja” means to build unity and harmony within families, communities, nations and the world. But the journey for umoja can also be an internal journey of discovering who you are, understanding your value, finding your purpose, and living with passion to experience peace and satisfaction.


    Colleen Cole is an international speaker, humanitarian and the co-author of the upcoming book Umoja: A Journey from Success to Significance. The book recounts her first trip to Africa with International Needs, an Ontario-based Christian charity that works in 30 countries. Traveling 6,000 miles through five African countries in 32 days, Colleen and her teammates provided business counselling and capacity building to help these African communities build sustainable projects.


    But what began as an African safari soon became a journey of transformation.


    “Our role was to build “umoja,” that unity and togetherness, but the real Umoja happened within my own self,” recalls Colleen. “The trip showed me what I’m made of. It helped build my confidence and it showed me that humanitarian, developmental work is what I have a passion for.”


    True to her vision of a life of adventure with purpose, Colleen will soon launch an Umoja Journey, crossing six continents to raise $1 million for women's projects in developing nations.


    “When my husband died, I could not see a future,” says Colleen. “Now I have a whole new outlook. If I can do it other women can, too. It's about discovering how you can make an impact beyond your own life to transform lives and change communities.”

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Susan Hope Berland Coaching

    in Family

    San Rafael, CA – As parents we have expectations for our children but our kids have their own ideas. Sometimes a child comes home with a tattoo or purple hair. Sometimes a child wants to choose a different path in life than what we’d imagined for them.


    Susan Berland suspected for years that her son might be gay. She’d been planning a trip to visit her son in Los Angeles shortly after his 20th birthday when he called to tell her he wanted to talk to her about something when she came down.


    “When he finally did tell me I handled it really well,” recalls Susan. “I wasn’t surprised, but I was shocked. It’s really different when it’s your own child. It wasn’t the image I had for his life.”


    Today, Susan is a safe harbor coach for parents who are struggling with accepting their children, specifically parents of LGBTQ kids. Susan guides parents and their kids to communicate effectively, trust one another and accept one another where and as they are.


    “I have a special place in my heart for parents of LGBTQ kids who are struggling to accept their kids because that’s who I was,” says Susan. “In the years since my son came out to me I’ve seen the impact a parent’s rejection, or even the perceived rejection can have on a child.”


    Susan says she had all the common fears a parent has when their child comes out: Will they be happy? Will they be loved? Will they be safe?


    “A lot of the conversations are about getting in touch with the emotions,” explains Susan. “We start with acknowledging their feelings and we work on getting to a place of acceptance.”

    "Good Things Come In Small Packages"

    Jonathan Valencia is a 13 year old who loves Jesus. He was born in Jacksonville, Florida. 


    At the early age of 3, Jonathan's idea of play was preaching on his karaoke machine.  He has always enjoyed attending church.  His mother recalls one memorable moment was when he was about 4 years old, he fell asleep in church. Jonathan woke up with a big stretch and stated something like "Boy, that devil will sure put you to sleep". 


    Jonathan has a deep love for Jesus and spreads the good news of salvation to the world. His first release "Kingdom Bound" was written by his mother, Margo Valencia, and is for everyone, with a focus on the youth due to Jonathan's sincere concern for his peers, who listen to explicit lyrics.  He understands that many of the words they repeat are not good for their minds, and many of his peers are not even aware of the things they are speaking in their lives.   Johnathan is currently a nominee in "The Stellar Awards"!


    If you want an additional Blessing to go along with those you've already been given, you must tune into the show and hear this 'DYNAMIC" God Sent Youth Minister & Musical Artist!

    084 JODY WATLEY: "Paradise is Here"

    in Self Help


    This Grammy-winning superstar knows a thing or two about life, love and balance. “I’ve always been a grounded person. Being an artist is different than being a celebrity. Having a life that you’re comfortable with when you go to sleep at night is incredibly important to me.”  Always a fashion-forward visionary and trendsetter, Jody brings an empowering message to BOLD, offering can’t-miss advice on how to create your own sanctuary at home. “It’s not about going to Maui. It starts right where you are.” Despite her massive success and stream of monster hits (“Looking for a New Love,” “Still a Thrill,” “Real Love,” “Friends”), Jody–like everyone else­–has had her ups and downs. “I pour a lot of myself into the music. When I left the group Shalamar for a solo career, people said I wouldn’t make it. Winning the Grammy for Best New Artist was like being rewarded by God and the universe for stepping out on faith.” Available on iTunes, her latest album “Paradise” features retro funk and recalls the disco and soul records that inspired her iconic musical style. “It takes the soul and spirit of those classic sounds and blends them together with electronica.” Jody’s official website is www.jodywatley.net.

    Interview with Jim Ed Brown

    in Country Music

    Whether as a solo artist or in a duet with with Helen Cornelius, JIM ED BROWN never fails to make magic with a song. But, any discussion about the career of Jim Ed would have to begin with the years he spent singing with his sisters Maxine and Bonnie as The Browns. Recording together for well over a decade, the trio put together a catalouge that included “Lookin’ Back To See,” “I Heard The Bluebirds Sing,” and their iconic 1959 crossover record “The Three Bells.” 


    Looking back on that family blend of harmony that brought him to the dance, Jim Ed says his singing with his siblings never really had a beginning point. It was just something that always was a part of life, growing up in Sparkman, Arkansas. “We started singing when we were young kids. I lost my little brother when I was nine years old, and I remember he and I sang together. We would listen to Daddy’s old battery operated radio. If it was a clear night, we might be able to pick up the Grand Ole Opry,” he recalls. 


    Jim Ed's easy going nature and movie-star good looks led to a long career on television – with stints on his own The Country Place TV show in the early 1970s, Nashville On The Road, and You Can Be A Star – which helped launch many of Music City’s greatest, including Linda Davis. Then, in 1976, fate – and Chet Atkins stepped in again. “Chet found this song, and gave it to Bob Ferguson – who was my producer at the time. It was a great song - ‘I Don’t Want To Have To Marry You.’ I wanted to do it solo, but he wanted me to do it as a duet. He said he wanted me to cut it with Helen Cornelius." 


    Jim Ed Brown joins me on the show to talk about his music career and new album In Style Again.
