    Animal Abuse (Pre-recorded September 19th)

    in Pets

    This is a rebroad cast of last night's Animal Abuse episode.  This episode was originally scheduled to air live (September 20th at 5PM), but due to scheduling conflicts, we had to air it live a day early.  For those of you who were unable to listen last night, here is a rebroadcasting of that episode.  Be sure to press play to listen.


    The subject of animal abuse is never a pleasant topic, but is one that none-the-less, needs to be addressed.  There seems to be more and more news stories about innocent animals being abused, hurt, or killed at the hands of humans.  What can we do to stop this awful behavior?  Who typically commits these crimes?  Youths or adults?  Why do these crimes occur?  What are some of the less obvious signs that an animal may be being subject to abuse?  Join hosts J and D as they explore this topic in an effort to spare all animals from the devastating effects of animal cruelty.  Saturday, September 20th, 5PM, CT

    How can I deal with animal abuse?

    in Pets

    A listener writes: Whenever I hear or think about animal abuse, neglect, abandonment, and cruelty, I collapse into sadness, feeling an overwhelming sense of heartbreak and just want to rescue and protect them all.


    I know that surrendering to such strong emotion is not a contribution to them or me. How can I choose a different response, one that will allow me to use my talents and potentcies to bring more awareness and kindness or whatever is required to benefit all animals.


    I am, apparently, not in allowance of them choosing to experience unpleasant and/or painful circumstances.


    Thank you!

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1345

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Richard Sipe from La Jolla, California, a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor who earlier spent 18 years as a Benedictine monk and priest. Now married, Richard is devoted full time to research into the sexual and celibate practices of Roman Catholic bishops and priests. That path has lead him to the study of the sexual teaching of the church and its effects on behavior - especially sexual abuse of minors by clergy - and the tangle of sexual problems that some people claim are blocking every religious agenda and destroying beyond repair the credibility of the Catholic Church in sexual matters. The Academy Award winning Best Picture for 2016, "Spotlight," featured his words as part of their investigation into clergy abuse. Richard was trained specifically to deal with the mental health problems of Roman Catholic Priests. In the process of training and therapy, he conducted a 25-year ethnographic study of the celibate / sexual behavior of that population. His study, first published in 1990, is now considered a classic. Richard has published six books that explore these themes, including A Secret World and Celibacy in Crisis.' Widely interviewed by media he's known internationally and has participated in 12 documentaries on celibacy and priest sexual abuse aired by HBO, BBC, and other networks in the United States, United Kingdom, and France. Richard has no professional sympathy for the cardinals and bishops and other ranking church officials who cover up their crimes. "Some of them are so terrible," he says. "I mean the plain lying that I've seen, bishop after bishop saying, 'No, this was never true. I don't know anything. I can't remember anything.' And sometimes the bishop just smiles. One bishop said, 'I only lie when I have to.'"

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1344

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Nikki DuBose from Los Angeles, a child abuse survivor who was later abused as a young professional model. Among other things, Nikki advocates on her web site for better regulation of the modeling industry (she tells me about 40% of models have an eating disorder and that there's a lot of sexual abuse/harassment). Nikki also works closely with Matt Sandusky at the "Peaceful Hearts Foundation," where she serves on the Executive Board and is their Volunteer Director. Nikki says, "I wholeheartedly believe that full recovery is possible, but it starts with speaking out and reducing the shame and stigma that is so often attached to mental health issues." In her upcoming memoir, "Washed Away: From Darkness to Light," due out later this year, Nikki details how being sexually abused as a child led to a seventeen-year battle with serious mental health issues such as eating disorders, depression, self-harm, body dysmorphic disorder, substance abuse and sexual addictions. During her career as a professional model, she encountered a great deal of success, yet that prosperity came with a high price - one that often mirrored the sexual abuse from her childhood. Coming to a place of full healing has not been easy for Nikki, but she says, "Being an advocate is what allows me to wake up every day and feel truly alive. All of that pain that I lived with for so many years is now channeled into making a difference in society. Whatever issues you’re passionate about, use your voice and the resources you have; love yourself first and from there you can help to change the world."

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1343

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Misty Reynolds from Spokane, Washington, a NAASCA volunteer and a survivor of child hood trauma from as early as she can remember until she was 18. She'd struggled with drugs and alcohol in her teens, cleaned up briefly when she got pregnant, and had a child in her senior year. "I went through the AmeriCorps program after graduation becoming a peer model at the school," she says. "Mentoring mediating and helping my peers get out of the chaos they lived in." But that didn't last long "I picked up the bottle where my step dad left off .. still functioning day to day to life." As Misty notes, "I married my last abuser and didn't know he was a pedophile until our son was 2." She explains, "I married him so I wouldn't have to testify against him for attempted strangulation." She cleaned up briefly during her second pregnancy, but relapsed when her son was 7 months old. Eventually she sought numbness, and began using meth. I cheated on my daughter's dad with my boy's father. "The next three years are still pretty blurry except the abuse. I remember that clearly." But her trauma didn't end there. As she implies, Misty is also a survivor of domestic violence. At various times she's worked with Betty Maxwell, a DV advocate in the community where she lived. Betty wanted her help to bring other survivors into her program. "The only problem was I couldn't stop using." And no wonder. "My mom was my supplier as well as my husband. I saw no escape so I continued to use." Misty's slowly but surely building back her life now however, noting, "I haven't worked in a long time due to PTSD and barely survived my ex-husband's wrath." We know she'll do well with NAASCA.

    Meet Ms. Crystal Victoria

    in Spirituality

    ‎AlfredaLoveShow?.Com--6pm This evening
    #StellarGospelMusic.Com
    Guest Call-in (347) 843-4981


    Ms. Crystal Victoria who is the President of Target of Evolution has overcome great adversity and would like to share information about Target Evolution, her inspirational story and her current project which will be working with inmates to get them to develop entrepreneur skills in Simply Oloni.


    Crystal Victoria is the embodiment of strength having overcome many obstacles on the way to becoming a success. She was raised in a single parent home with her mother in Denton, Texas.


    At a young age, Crystal embarked on a journey that would leave her life forever changed. From an “A” honor rolls to Texas jail cells, drug abuse, juvenile detention centers to the street life. When Crystal was nineteen years old, she traveled to five different countries and went a full trip around the globe all expense paid. This trip planted the very important seed that soon grew into the life she’d always dreamed, but not without forcing her to awaken to a higher purpose.


    Today, Crystal Victoria has and will continue to become an inspiration to millions with her books, nonprofit organization for aspiring entrepreneurs, and now her entrepreneurship school, Target Evolution Entrepreneurship Institute.

    The ORACLE Speaks With ... YOU!

    in Spirituality

    As always, we open the Urantia book and learn something new. Today is my oldest Daughter Liz's Bearthday. Happy Bearthday Baby Girl, I love you so much. 4:42 pm will mark your 28th year. You came here early, ready for the world. It has been an honor to call myself your Mom, Nother, Mommy and so much more. Have a great day.


    I discovered a new talent last Thursday at Macau, the new place to be on Thursdays, thanks to Roland Wirt and Reginald Dorsey. That new talent is Javier Mosley, known as J Mosley and the JME Allstars. I went to thier listening party last night at Karma Lounge and I was not dissapointed. I will play thier music on the show today., Let me know what you think.


     


    This week's theme, from the heart of The ORACLE: My heart is determined to remember and pay homage to all those who have gone on before me, who touched my heart and showed me the way to pure, unadulterated, unconditional love of self and others. I have been blessed beyond measure with opportunities to live and love completely; from the beatings and abuse, the rapes and degradations, to the overwhelming love I am awashed in today, I will forever remember the lessons I have learned through it all. How else am I able to be of help to others, to be the vessel for love G-D meant me to be?
