1. Loving, Empowering & Respecting God's Children
The highest expression of human love and creativity is conscious parenting.
What does it mean to be conscious?
What’s involved in the process of becoming conscious?
What does it mean to be a conscious parent?
In this podcast you will explore and experience what it means to be conscious and a conscious parent.
You’ll come away experiencing a deeper appreciation of your children, your family, yourself and your unique lives.
Thomas Merton said, “The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.”
2. Consciously Embracing & Transcending Stress
Stress comes and goes. What stressed us in the past may not be stressing us now. What’s stressing us now may have never done so before. What’s stressing us now may never do so again.
Stress shifts but the unhealthy physical, mental and emotional effects that arise from how we respond to stress can be devastating and remain long after the circumstances that triggered the stress have disappeared.
Many parents are unknowingly but painfully still holding a lot of tension from when they were stressed as children. These unresolved and unreleased tensions not only affect us but our children as well.
In this program we’ll explore how we can acknowledge, embrace and transcend our own stress, while helping our children to do the same.
We will provide you and your children with tools you can use for a lifetime to respond to and transcend stress. Instead of reacting to stress in hurtful ways or “distracting” yourself and/or your children, pretending it’s not there, you can embrace stress.
“Appreciating each other is a true family value, one that will bail out much of the stress on the planet and help strengthen the universal bond all people have.” ~ Sara Paddison
We can use stressful situations as keys to open our hearts to the unique gifts our precious children bring to our lives and the unique gifts we have to offer our children.

4. Commanding Your Soul Power, Part 1
There are parts of us we see and parts of us we can’t see.
The parts of us we can’t see–our soul, mind, emotional body and
loving heart–are much more powerful than the parts of us we can see–like
our physical body.
Being a conscious parent or conscious being in general involves
learning how to use the invisible parts of our self to create a
beautiful life for all the aspects of our being, our children, our
family, our community and all life.
In being a conscious parent or conscious being in general, we integrate our emotions, body, mind, heart and soul into a unified field of love.
In this unified field of love with all aspects of our being integrated, we can achieve our full potential.
In this show we’ll explore the relationship of our emotions, body, mind, heart and soul with one another.
More importantly you’ll learn how to use your soul to integrate all aspects of your being and create happiness, joy, bliss, success, and loving relationships with your children, family and community.
Swami Sivananda said, “Put your heart, mind and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.”
5. Commanding Your Soul Power, Part 2
6. Embodying Reverence For All Life
Albert Schweitzer said, “I can do no other than be reverent before
everything that is called life.
I can do no other than to have
compassion for all that is called life.
That is the beginning and the
foundation of all ethics.”
Appreciating the UNIQUENESS of OURSELVES along with EVERYONE and
EVERYTHING ELSE in the world helps us develop a reverence for life.
Mother Teresa said, “The problem with the world is that we draw the circle of our family
In this program we will extend this circle to encompass all life everywhere!
7. The Wonders of Loving Our Children and Our Selves Unconditionally
Nicholas Sparks said, “What it’s like to be a parent? It’s one
of the hardest things you’ll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the
meaning of unconditional love.”
This program delves into the miraculous wonders of unconditionally loving our self, our children and others.
Hafiz of Shiraz said, “Even after all this time the sun never
says to the earth, ‘you owe me’.
Look what happens with a love like
It lights the whole sky.”
The unconditional love of parent’s lights up something even greater – the hearts and souls of their children.
When children experience unconditional love, when they are treated as
the blessing they are, free of expectations and desires of others, they
too will treat others with unconditional love.
This program is for parents AND children. We’ll share ways:
- you can be the unconditional love your children need to thrive.
- your children can learn to extend their natural tendency to love unconditionally.
- you and your children can love yourselves unconditionally at all times.
There are guided visualizations, storytelling and sharings
where you and your children can tangibly experience the unconditional
love of your hearts and souls.
8. Living In and As Love, Peace and Bliss, Part 1
Sathya Sai Baba said, “Where there is FAITH, there is LOVE; Where
there is LOVE; there is PEACE; Where there is PEACE; there is GOD;
Where there is GOD; there is BLISS.”
In this program we’ll follow that magical path that leads from
Faith to Love, from Love to Peace, from Peace to God, and from God to
Parents AND children alike will enjoy this magical path.
We’ll share ways you can be the love, peace and bliss your children need to thrive.
We’ll share ways that children can learn to hold on to or regain their natural state of love, peace and bliss.
LOVE: Chris Moore says, “Love… What is love? Love is to love someone for who they are, who they were, and who they will be.”
PEACE: In the Course in Miracles it says, “I must have decided wrongly, because I am not at peace. I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise. I want to decide otherwise, because I want to be at peace.”
BLISS: Henry Miller said, “It’s good to be just plain happy;
a little better to know that you’re happy; but to understand that
you’re happy and to know why and how and still be happy, be happy in the
being and the knowing, well that is beyond happiness,
that is bliss.”
This program will help you and your children experience the love,
peace and bliss that you truly are as you navigate the unchartered
waters of daily living with clarity, confidence, and ease.
St. Augustine said, “People travel to wonder at the heights of mountains, the huge waves of the sea, the long courses of rivers, the vast compass of the ocean, the circular motion of the stars; and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.”
9. Living In and As Love, Peace and Bliss, Part 2
As we continue to explore and experience our inherent Love, Peace and Bliss from last week’s program, we will also be exploring the spiritual unity of all humankind.
In the song “Imagine”, John Lennon sings,
“Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one.”
Dividing land into countries creates a separateness. Dividing
spirituality into religions creates separateness. John Lennon imagines a
world without separateness—a world where we all live as one.
A world where there is one religion—LOVE—and many ways to practice that religion.
- is a beacon that lights the path to Love.
- sings the praises of God.
- speaks of Truth.
In today’s program we’re going to explore the common principles embraced by the different religions of the world and how that can lead us to experience the BLISS we are.
Kahil Gibran said, “I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.”
This program is for parents AND children.
10. Discovering and Living Your Bliss, Part 1
Sathya Sai Baba said, “Where there is FAITH, there is LOVE; Where
there is LOVE; there is PEACE; Where there is PEACE; there is GOD;
Where there is GOD; there is BLISS.”
Paramahansa Yogananda says, that no matter what we do in life “ . . . the ultimate end—which all other ends merely subserve—is the avoidance of pain and want, and the attainment of permanent Bliss.”
He goes on to say, “Love gives joy. We love love because it gives us
such intoxicating happiness.” But “ . . . love is not the ultimate; the
ultimate is bliss. God is
Sat-Chit-Ananda, ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new Bliss.”
As a conscious parent, reconnecting with, experiencing, and following your bliss has immeasurable benefits for your children.
This program guides you through a very practical, in depth, step by step process that you, regardless of your faith or current circumstances in life, can use to discover, access, use and fully embody your Sat-Chit-Ananda: ever-existing, ever-conscious, ever-new Bliss.
This step by step guide will be your own personal recipe for creating and living a blissful life in each moment—bliss with your children, family, friends and co-workers; bliss you can live in, breathe in, eat in, play in, work in, rest in and sleep in.
You’ll learn the signs and feelings you experience when you find and follow your bliss.
You’ll learn how to remove the impressions lodged in the depths of
your subconscious mind that keep you experiencing the roller coaster of
happiness and sadness, joy and sorrow, so you can enter into the ever
increasing, ever present experience of the ecstatic bliss that you are.
Join us whether you are a parent, grandparent, caretaker, educator, expectant parent, or simply someone who wants to live a blissfully conscious and productive life with rewarding relationships.
11. Discovering and Living Your Bliss, Part 2
If you are following your bliss, your children will naturally follow
their bliss. You will be the role model of bliss they need to stay in
touch with, magnify, fully embody and share their bliss.
In this program we’re going to continue developing your own personal recipe for creating and living a blissful life in each moment by looking at the activities you love to do; the things you love to use; the ideas and knowledge you love and have; as well as the problems, issues and needs you love to solve.
We’ll really delve into the “needs” ingredients as understanding and addressing our children’s needs, as well as our own, is the very heart of conscious parenting, conscious living.
Join us and create your own recipe for living a blissful life in each moment—bliss with your children, family, friends and co-workers; bliss you can live in, breathe in, eat in, play in, work in, rest in and sleep in.
Greg Phillips says, “We create our own world with the ingredients we put into it, so take care with your recipe.”
12. Living and Loving As An Evolutionary Family
As we endeavor to be more conscious parents, a more conscious partner for our beloved, we recognize the need to connect with, resolve, and release whatever traumas, fears, thoughts, memories, desires, cultural conditioning's and other stereotypes that keep us from being fully present for our children and beloved.
We make a commitment to discovering ourselves through our sacred family, a commitment to discover and live true selfless love. We form a family bond that is committed to openness, to communing and to exploring life together.
As an evolutionary family we seek out and acknowledge the gifts each family member brings to the love affair we are co-creating with one another each moment.
We acknowledge and are aware of the evolutionary potential, the potential for much deeper love, perception and understanding, that comes through seeing each other as mirrors and reflectors by which we can learn more about ourselves—through which we can resolve and release past traumas and other energies blocking the full expression of our love. We stop blaming others and start seeing parts of ourselves in them.
Within an evolutionary family, common family situations transform what could be challenging times where someone or everyone gets wounded into win/win results for everyone. We use creative conflict and self-examination to enhance our growth and experiences of living in and as peace, love and bliss. We realize that intra-family work is more exciting and meaningful than anything else. We choose to heal the evolutionary path of past generations bringing an end to unconscious actions.
Paramahansa Yogananda said, “Parents and children should understand that their relationship is not fortuitous, but is due to a divine plan. Family life is the laboratory in which human love can be transformed into God’s perfect love.
Parents should look upon their child as the honored temple where their conjugal love can be purified and expanded into filial love. They should feel that they are serving God in that little temple. Children, in turn, should look upon their parents as visible representatives of God on earth.”
At the very core of an evolutionary family is prayer and meditation. Prayer and Meditation helps us see into our family life and provide us with the energy and illumination to solve our problems. A family meditation program leads us to deeper, richer friendships; freedom from anxiety; spontaneity and creativity in play; open, loving family relationships, and feelings of trust and safety.
Meditation assists in shifting “survivor” brain reactions that propel us into the limited reactions of being a “loner, pleaser or controller” into stabilizing responses that we will discuss during the program.
Meditation awakens dormant brain cells, giving us access to the 85 to 90% of the brain most people do not use. It stimulates the brain neurons, increasing their capacity to allow more awareness to enter our consciousness.
Meditation improves self-image. Children learn they can become a master of themselves by quieting their bodies, emotions and thoughts to experience the deeper reality of their spirit. They gain a sense of inner authority as questions are answered from within.
In the joy, sense of well-being and direct perception that opens up,
children gain self-reliance and can do better in whatever interests
them. The gradual development of deep concentration that goes with
meditation becomes part of their character. Then the vibrant and often
scattered energies of childhood become directed and used, by the
children themselves, to achiever their own goals.
