Many of us here in the U.S. were shocked and disappointed by the results of yesterday’s Presidential election. It seems as though hatred has won the battle against love. But Gia and Karen present a new mindset to adopt as we look at this event to help us rise above it and make the best of what feels like a very bad situation. They talk about the positive outcomes that arise from starting over again after a destructive experience and why we must remember to keep loving and not descend into fear or hatred.
Join Gia and Karen as they talk about mistakes and the purpose they play in our own lives and on a global scale. They’ll get into a serious discussion about recent tragic events and how to look at them from the Galaxy view. The conversation includes:
Why mistakes are necessary to allow synchronicity to occur
How to have compassion for our own mistakes that arise from being human
Why we should not judge others because as human beings we are all capable of any negative behavior
Some tragedies happen to call forth more love and compassion on the planet
“Things are not getting worse but they are being uncovered” so that we can heal the Shadow
Offering support to one group within our society (like Black Lives Matter) does not mean that we are excluding others from that support
We can all come together in our grief over all lives that have been lost
We are one creation and can accomplish anything if we work together and appreciate diversity
We are at a turning point in humanity where we can choose love or fear as we move into the future. Love will help us transcend while fear will lead to falling apart.
The Universe is neutral and desires to manifest as much diversity as possible – there is no good or bad according to the Universe
Healing and integrating the Shadow as we attempt to grow is the best way to become whole
We must each shine our light on our own Shadow first
Ho’oponopono is a perfect way to transform the energy around a tragedy:
I love you.
Please forgive me.
You can increase the awareness of the whole by being willing to make mistakes
Today Gia begins the show by talking about the recent death of a friend and how she was inspired by her grief to review her old journals from 2013 when her grandmother died. She shares the trauma she experienced when she froze while playing a special song at Grammy’s funeral and how she views that situation now. We launch into a discussion about the lessons and grace that can come from our pain and devastation and these topics:
The Violin Metaphor and how being hollowed out is necessary for our music to emerge
What doctors need to learn about healing when the physical body cannot be cured
The pain of grief from the Garden view even when we know that the Soul lives on from the Galaxy view
How after-death connections are not the same as the physical connection was in life
The ongoing pain from the gaps left behind when loved ones die
The role social media can play in grief by allowing us to share our pain with others
How our suffering can help transform us into who we are meant to be
While our show is focused on LIFE, we acknowledge that DEATH is an integral part of life and therefore we must discuss these events that have occurred on our journeys. We hope that sharing these stories will help you with your own pain and loss. We are right here with you, living life one day at a time and doing the best we can on this Planet Earth journey.

In this episode Gia and Karen discuss an article about grief we recently read that was titled “Everything Doesn’t Happen for a Reason” by Tim Lawrence. We dissect the article and find plenty of statements to disagree with, to validate, and to further explain. The conversation covers these interesting points:
What “everything happens for a reason” means and doesn’t mean
Suffering is not a requirement for growth but can be a catalyst
Grief is a process and may look different to us at different stages in the process
We have to hold both perspectives: (1) Suffering is terrible AND (2) it is possible to grow and transform as a result of our suffering
Deep love makes us vulnerable to suffering and loss and can break our hearts open
How finding meaning in our suffering helps us carry the pain
Self-compassion is necessary to get through time of suffering
Why saying nothing can be the best thing to do during times of grief
We know that grief is an individual process, unique to each person who experiences it. But it is also a universal experience–something we all share as part of life here on Planet Earth. We hope you find comfort and peace in knowing that we feel the pain of life, too, right along with you. Send us your comments! We are sending you our love!!
