    Vishuddha- Throat Chakra

    in Lifestyle

    The Throat Chakra covers the area of the external and internal throat and neck

    as well as the mouth, teeth, and jaw.

    It is often blocked with suppressed feelings, revealing unspoken emotions and unexpressed ideas.


    When the Throat Chakra is blocked, it prevents energy from rising to the upper centers.  Clearing this center requires a deep commitment to the truth, as well as living from integrity.  When it is healed, strength flourishes and directs the life force toward creativity and self-expression.

    The qualities expressed by the Throat Chakra are creativity, willpower, the truth, communication, and personal integrity.  This center governs the thyroid and controls our ability to communicate our thoughts, feelings, and ideas clearly.  When the Throat Chakra is functioning optimally, people will take stands for what they believe in.  They are seldom dependent on others to give them permission to express their feelings

    This chakra develops later in life when a person has maturity to know what really matters.  Clearing out family suppression and unexpressed emotions takes many years of inner work.  This chakra holds memory and energy of all that went unexpressed.  It is deeply affected by substance abuse, gossip, lying, and lack of personal integrity.

    "Getting It All Done" with Jory Fisher and Julie Fleming

    in Women

    Even the most purpose-driven person will, at times, find herself dragging. When you make promises to yourself but don’t keep them, you know you need a dose of something… Motivation? Discipline? Willpower? A stronger vision or purpose? Join Jory and Julie as they discuss what it really takes to accomplish your objectives, especially when those objectives include interim steps that you don’t enjoy but recognize as necessary to achieve your ultimate goal.

    Jory and Julie discuss the extent to which willpower is ego-based and what that means for the wisdom of relying on willpower to achieve goals, to extent to which discipline draws on the strength of a higher power and how that helps us bring vision to fruition. We’ll discuss the instances in which each is useful, along with discussing Stephen Pressfield’s concept of Resistance as the key block to purposeful accomplishment.  Finally, Jory and Julie explore how to harness motivation and develop discipline to continue our vision- and purpose-based work even in the midst of significantly competing demands.

    Julie A. Fleming, principal of Lex Innova Consulting, helps lawyers and other service professionals to create and implement innovative business development plans. She is the author of three books as well as numerous articles on topics such as business development, practice management, work/life balance, and leadership development. You can find out more about Julie at Lex Innova Consulting.

    Willpower FAILS! Try God Powered Weight Loss for 2014!

    in Weight Loss

    Repeated weightloss failures despite valiant efforts happen every day, and is magnified every new year when resolutions to lose weight are decided by the global population.  

    The problem is not willingness - we are all willing, but the flesh is weak.  Willpower will generate massive momentum initally; but that momentum loses steam really quickly, fading into weightloss oblivion.

    Pastor Rick Warren started the Daniel Plan at his church a few years ago, and the success measured more than 15,000 members losing in excess of 250,000 pounds.  The lighter, more confident congregation is also reputed to have more vibrancy for doing God's work.

    He has tranferred this plan and its success formula to his latest book, The Daniel Plan - 40 days to a Healthier Life.  Join me in a HYBRID (Live/online broadcast) Bible Study (Starts October 2, 2014) using this curriculum.

    In this show, we discuss the desire to lose weight, the challenges we constantly face, and how using God Power, as outlined by Pastor Rick Warren; instead of willpower - the tried and failed method.may be the ticket to weight loss success in 2014.

    Treating depression and anxiety--can we get past the trial and error approach

    in Health


    Patrick J. McGrath, M.D. Professor of Clinical Psychiatry

    Sarah Fader, Founder & CEO, Stigma Fighters

    Despite years of progress, the stigma of having a mood disorder like depression, or an anxiety disorder like panic disorder is still considerable.  People experience disbelief from family, co-workers, and friends that this is a medical problem rather than a matter of needing to exert willpower and fortitude.  Sarah Fader and her organization, Stigma Fighters are working hard to address this issue for people with these disorders and will discuss her advocacy work in this regard.  Even when a mood or anxiety disorder has been diagnosed and is being treated, unfortunately selection of the correct treatment is still a matter of trial and error, with the attendant delay and frustration.  Dr. Patrick McGrath is engaged in a pioneering study, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, called EMBARC, which seeks to make the first steps toward a future where testing will help predict which treatment will be most effective.  Ms. Fader and Dr. McGrath will discuss these efforts to assist those having these disorders."
