Orgasmic Living By Heather Nichols

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to wake up each morning,  ready to leap out of bed excited for the adventures you could choose each day? Or does it seem that your days are something to get through, accomplishing as much as possible on the daily-to-do list, walking through the same routine as the day before and the day before that? Do you live for your holidays and hope that someday you can live the life of your dreams, a life outside the boxes that you see others around you choose? What if there is something very different that is possible? What if each day could be a wildly, unpredictable, undefinable, inconsistent adventure of living? What would it be like to have a point of view that each day, not just holidays or weekends, could be filled with possibilities, joy and creativity. Rather than being something we do, orgasmic living is a space of being where we are on the edge of creation, out of the box, where you create and be the joy that inspires and awakens life, our bodies and even the planet itself. What would it be like if your joy, your vitality and your aliveness where a catalyst for a different possibility in this world of ours? Join Heather Nichols and her guest Emily Russell in a definitely different conversation full of tools to assist us to become that orgasmic catalyst of change.

Business as the Adventure of Living with Katarina Nilsson By Heather Nichols

Would it be fun for you to have your business be an adventure? Would that light you up more than the struggle and lack of joy that so many people choose in this reality with their own businesses?

Perhaps there is something that you have always dreamed of creating that would like to be actualized now, or something that has been nudging you asking to be born?

What could you experience and choose if you didn’t have to wait for anything or anyone else? Would you create what you truly desire if you never had to consider failure or giving up as an option?

Come join Advanced Joy of Business facilitators Heather Nichols and Katarina Nilsson, two truly creative catalysts of change and expansion for a unique conversation into business and the creation of your life.

It’s important to feel validated and appreciated. Affirmation is a fundamental need of all humans. Hosts Henna Hundal and Katelyn Darrow share their personal experiences with ways they offer affirmation to themselves and others. They also interview CEO of BYOU Magazine, author of Beauty’s Secret, A Girl’s Discovery of Inner Beauty, and former international model and actress, Debra Gano. After a series of life-changing incidents, including a near-fatal car accident, Debra’s perspective shifted from one of superficial external-focus to a deeper inner awareness that “it’s what’s inside that counts.” As a single mother of a twelve-year-old daughter, Debra discusses her passion for helping females find and live their most authentic, empowered selves.
Henna loves working with Be the Star You Are!® charity providing platforms for expression and promoting positive media. She says, “ we’re equipping young people with the confidence they need so that they can get out there and take the world by storm.” She also is a Teen Ambassador for You are Valued where the message is “Grant yourself permission. Give yourself affirmation and define yourself.” Besides volunteering with Be the Star You Are!®, Katelyn launched a new campaign with her charity, Angels of God, called Angel Deeds which encourages people to spread kindness and help others through every day, simple deeds. “Small actions make a big difference,” says Katelyn.
The following is excerpted from the chapter, The Gift of Affirmation from Cynthia Brian’s book, Be the Star You Are!® 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference.
“We underestimate how our own personal agenda affects people we know and don’t know. Smiling is an incredibly effective affirmation. Even when you feel down, just making yourself smile will improve everyone’s mood, including your own.
“Help people notice the good in themselves. When they feel special, they will be special.” Cynthia Brian

“Planes” A Visual Spectacle and a Wonderful Family Film!

Planes

If you thought “Cars” was brilliant, then you’ll be sure to love their latest animated adventure, “Planes” which comes out on DVD/Blu-ray November 19. It’s an action-packed comedy about a small plane with big dreams. The only problem is that the plane, Dusty is a crop-duster who’s afraid of heights!  As you can imagine, this makes it very difficult for him to achieve his dreams.  With the help of his best friends Dusty’s future turns a bit brighter. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Brianna Hope B says, “It is a great film. It has hope, adventure and good humor.” Her full review is below.

“Planes” Reviewed by Brianna Hope B.

This film is too cute, funny and has great animation.

Dusty, (Dane Cook-Voice) is a basic crop-dusting plane with big dreams of competing in an aerial race. However he is afraid of heights, yes that’s right, heights! In order for him to even get up the nerve to compete and pursue his dreams; he needs the help of his mentor, Skipper, (Stacy Keach-Voice) and his friends.

“Planes” has a good story line and I really like it. It has hope, adventure and good humor with comedians Brad Garrett (Chug-Voice), Sinbad (Roper-Voice) and many more. All the voice actors do a great job portraying their characters. Of course, the 3D animation is spectacular with great detail and lots of lively colors. My favorite scene is when Skipper starts training Dusty and Chug and Dottie (Terri Hatcher-Voice) are talking too loud for Dusty to concentrate. Skipper yells at them to be quiet and they straighten up immediately, but keep talking. This is really funny. My favorite character is Roper, because he says and does the funniest things. He always seems to be rambling about something and is funny.

Writer, Jeffrey M. Howard, writes a comedic script that gives kids something to enjoy and feel good about. Another well known comedian voice cast who I enjoyed in this film is Cedric the Entertainer (Leadbottom-Voice).

As Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”  I really like this and believe this message is demonstrated throughout the film.

I recommend this film for ages 7 to 13. Kids who love Disney animation films will love this one as it is similar to other Disney films. It’s also a great film for the family to see although older teens may not be too interested in it.

I give “Planes” 4 out of 5 stars because I would like to see more originality and uniqueness, but overall it is a great film and I really enjoy watching it. I know you will too. Reviewed by Brianna Hope B., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Opportunity and Adventure by Maria Rodriguez

Opportunity Photo

 

“Is this an opportunity to consider or a problem to solve?”, so asked America, an intuitive consultant. She was referring to my fretting about how we could afford the remodeling project we were considering. I quickly shifted from a state of agitation to one of cautious excitement. I could feel the power of choice- there was nothing that I had to do, only something that I could choose to do…with proper planning and precaution.

How often do we miss the opportunities hidden within possibilities like this one, worrying instead about all of the risks? Similarly, how often do we miss adventures hidden within losses- of a job, of a marriage; of any loss we didn’t want and didn’t choose?

With those that aren’t as obvious, sometimes all it takes is a shift in attitude and mindset, an embracing of the spirit of Opportunities and Adventures (the giddy anticipation of the child within and the uplift shown in the photo above), and a leap of faith in action.  Try it, you’ll see.

 

Healer, Teacher, Circle Leader and host of the show Cour De Grace on VoiceAmerica’s Empowerment Channel. Maria Rodriguez has served in these ways in her 25 years as a clinical social worker. These roles have been enhanced by Maria’s gifted Channeling. She receives words, processes and images full of wonder and of truth that can speak to us all, adding Infinite Possibilities to our lives.

Maria believes that together we can see more clearly, shift more deeply and move forward more swiftly. In light of this, she developed a model for Breaking Our Toxic Shame Cycles: Healing Ourselves and Our Relationships, a model that has led many to profound spiritual and psychological transformation. Maria is also the founder of Sacred Spaces, her counseling work of partnering with each person to remove these barriers and to access and embrace the Sacred Spaces, within us, between us, and around us.

Through Cour de Grace and the VoiceAmerica talk radio show, Maria will share much of the wisdom she has gained from the pain and triumphs of her own journey and from being a co-journeyer with others. Maria believes that none of us need live any longer bound by shame and that our journey is one of moving towards leading a life we love to live, ever uncovering the essence of who we are, bringing higher intentions wherever we tread. All with grace, for the good of all that is.
