    Spirit and Animal Guides as Caregivers for Caregivers

    in Spirituality

    Join Sharon Rainbow Eagle, Jim Graywolf and Sue Graywolf for a webcast LIVE on Ciracle Radio on Wednesday 6/24 at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 12 PM PST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time. The web of life series we are presenting is getting very popular. Come join us by clicking the link below at showtime.


    We had a wonderful show this past Sunday on Spirit Guides. People from around the globe tuned in and shared their thoughts. This followed a show on care-giving we promised to air more on as asked by the listeners.


    And so it came to us something one of Jim’s elders taught - spirit and animal guides are there to help us grow and heal. But also to help us help those we aide, especially those giving care to others. True circle.


    So let’s dig into this very powerful circle of healers and guides and see how we can best use this energy. Those caregivers who asked for more - join us. Those wishing for more on spirit guides and how to work with them - come join us.


    The talking stick is now YOURS! Come join us and share your thoughts - or decide to just listen. Hit the link below just before show time.


    We invite listeners to come and participate in the discussion and the sharing of knowledge. And we thank all our listeners for truly “being” the shows we air. Join us!

    Lymphedema Voices: Sheryl #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Is No Joke

    in Health

    First time I talked to Sherly, she told me that she had once been a teacher but hasn't been able to work FT in decades.  She has had Lymphedema since in the early 90s.  She has difficulty fulfilling her life, difficulty in transportation.  She has no way of getting a compression garment (which can cost $500) without having to choose between a garment or paying rent because her income is just that stressed already.  Complicated by tumors (one removed and another that needs to removed).  She has written her Represenative but hasn't had a response just yet.  Hopefully, he'll get on board with the Lymphedema Treatment Act which will authorize Medicare to pay for the garment that helps to keep the lymphedema from getting worse, which causes so many other dominoing issues (like mobility, possible MS, and other diseases that stem from the damaged lymphatic systerm.  


    In Texas, we have 3 co-sponsors for the Lymphedema Treatment Act, and we have many more to go.  There are 4 bipartisan leads and 99 co-sponsors of the Lymphedemat Treatment Act across the United States.  We really need about 200 co-sponsors for this bill to be passed in the House.  We need your support to help the many Sheryl's out there with similar stories.  Please go to the http://lymphedematreatmentact.org website to sign up being a Team Member in your State and go to the "How You Can Help" and send your legislators personalize letters.


    Listen to the show that we had on November 20th as well for some other call to actions that you can do to help.

    Caregivers – Not Just About Giving

    in Spirituality

    Join Jim and Sue Graywolf, and Sharon Rainbow Eagle Bar-Or on Ciracle Radio for a very powerful webcast on Wednesday, June 17th at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time.  


    This time we will talk about caregivers since some of us find ourselves stepping up into this role now - with or without a conscious decision. People that are close to us go through changes like everyone else. But some need guidance and help that can contribute to the healing process, often more than they need the physical doctoring care itself.


    Caregiving is a a deep, intense, sometimes difficult experience for those able to work with the energies involved of helping someone close to us. Sometimes it involves their last walk in the physical form as they deal with a life-ending event. How do we best help them? And be mindful of our own well-being? What do they need? We will delve into all these questions and many more.


    Caregiving is a powerful piece of the existence that we are examing in this series on the web of life. There are ways to tap into other portions of the web to support this caregiving role.


     As caregivers working from their souls and hearts we sometimes forget that in order to give the best care possible we must not forget about caring for ourselves. To find the balance between giving and receiving is not an easy task but is critical, especially since all caregivers go through changes that involve emotions, physical, spiritual turmoil, etc.

    CAREGIVERS - when does giving to others cross the line into TOO MUCH?

    in Motivation

    We have several guests who have served as personal caregivers to family members and have learned valuable tips for others anticipating this position.


    Lorraine McCall, has been a primary caregiver to her dad for nearly 5 years. What has she learned and what can she share with us to offer assistance? Has it been easy, fulfilling, difficult, worth it?? What lessons has she learned?


    Marlo Oliver-Glass, a caregiver to her husband who was diagnosed as a terminally ill patient. What was that experience like? What lessons did she learn along the path to his full recovery? Was it difficult?


    Joyce Mottley, who has developed a plan to offer care to the caregivers, has been a healing balm to many as they go through their illnesses. A survivor herself, how important is it to take of one's self first?


    These ladies offer advice, suggestions and perhaps most important they offer care in various forms. A new energy facility, a community initiative and a complete program for the caregiver.

    CAREGIVERS PART 2: How do you LOVE in the apparent absence of love?

    in Motivation

    Caregiving is not always a happy ever after affair. Sometimes the ones we care for could care less about us, and may even wish we were not around! This type of service to another can literally zap all of your energy. We will discuss the other side of caregiving where it’s not so rosy or dandy. The place where we question our self, if this is truly what we are called to do.


    When the person you are giving care to will not listen to you and you need to find someone else to mediate what needs to be communicated.  The person simply dislikes you, or they act like it. They do unkind things to you. How do you still care? The person is just plain mean and nasty to you. They look at you with disgust. Dwight says “Loving is always available!”


    Mr. Dwight Spence is our welcomed guest tonight. Mr. Spence is an International Wellness Expert. His travels include the U.S., Brazil, Panama, Trinidad and Europe. He teaches on health and healing everywhere he travels. Dwight is always of service to others, helping to guide people to wholeness and recovery. He is currently serving as a caregiver to a family member. He is a wise soul providing helpful suggestions to direct you to inner peace.


    Dwight is often heard saying “Life is about how we are all prophets. You cannot find outside of you anything that is lasting. You got to go within to locate self-love.”


    See you on the Radio!!
