In this episode Gia and Karen talk about some personal experiences with healing their old wounds by taking a new perspective.
Something Positive is a story from Australia of two Aboriginal men who were dining at a restaurant and overheard two older women at a nearby table making racist comments about Aboriginals. Rather than getting angry the two men sent a pot of tea to the women as a gift with a note stating that it was from them. They responded to hatred with kindness, which is what the world needs right now!
Gia shares a personal story about rising above feeling hurt and abandoned by the behavior of another person. She learned how to love and celebrate who she is instead of taking the experience personally.
The discussion includes these points:
Neuroscience shows that negative memories are stored 10X more strongly than positive memories because the brain is wired to pay attention to potential threats
Neural pathways become stronger each time an old negative emory is revisited or re-enacted
Break the pattern of old negative behaviors by creating a new reality to reset the belief system
Our difficult relationships are gifts that point out our wounds and give us the opportunity to heal them
A powerful healing practice for relationships: write letters to and from the other person (without sending them) to access higher wisdom and create a new perspective
Our wounds are areas that are hidden from our self-love so they need to be exposed to enable us to love ourselves more fully
No one else has the power to make you happy! That is your responsibility. You create all the positive feelings in your life along with all the negative.
Recover from victimhood by recognizing that you are responsible for everything you feel – both positive and negative – and this will attract better partners for you
What you heal in present time is healed through all time so do your healing work now and don’t worry about going back to the past
Sometimes opportunities to heal our hidden wounds come to us through Grace
The stories we have told ourselves over the years are likely not even accurate or true – we cannot know what other people feel or they are thinking
View everything as an opportunity to heal – when other people bring pain they are just pointing our wounds so we can love ourselves more!

Today Gia shares her current personal situation in which life is “on pause” due to her roommate’s hospitalization after a bike accident. This unexpected event is the stimulus for a great conversation about the opportunities available when life’s tragic occurrences force us to take time out from our day-to-day busy schedules. The discussion includes:
why times of crisis are opportunities for transformation
reminders that we are not really in control over most of life – we are passengers, not the drivers of our “life vehicles”
how hospitals are sacred spaces
the process of healing from a conscious perspective: mind vs soul
the importance of being still and waiting to see what’s next
respond to every crisis with love, not fear
see the blessing in “the pause”
embrace whatever happens in your life
As always, we are here to share with you our own personal journeys through life’s ups and downs so that you will know that you are not alone and YOU ARE LOVED!
Take good care of yourself, spread love wherever you go, and remember that It’s Just Life!
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
