Suffering does not equal Victimization

Suffering does not equal Victimization

December 1, 2019

There is no bigger confusion in our culture than the difference between a spiritual and psychological wound. In fact, there is a tendency to merge the two as if they are the same. A spiritual wound is an event that happens outside of time that impacts your relationship with the source, God, or Universe. A psychological wound happens in real time and affects the relationship you're having with yourself and others. This means human suffering occurs in two ways: (1) separation from the source and (2) divided against us and others. One is the human condition the other is something that happens to us. In this way, suffering does not equal victimization.

Breakdown-Breakthrough-Integrate

Breakdown-Breakthrough-Integrate

November 27, 2019

In this episode we explore what it means to be whole and why it commonly happens that we have to breakdown before we can breakthrough.

All that is false begins to breakdown, sometime piece by piece or sometimes by hitting some sort of bottom. We begin our journey into new territory, a breakthrough to another side of life not previously known to us. As we surrender, we open up allowing for an integration of our divine self with our human self.

Spiritual Bypassing

Spiritual Bypassing

March 4, 2019

Tune in to hear Irma Francis and co-host Ernie Vecchio discuss spiritual bypassing. We may be using spirituality to bypass difficult issues in our lives. True and lasting healing comes from integrating the personal and transpersonal which allows for healthier interpersonal connections.  This integration opens us to self-love, spiritual integrity, authenticity and relationships based on wholeness rather than co-dependency. 

Spiritual bypassing is a tendency to use spiritual ideas and practices to sidestep or avoid facing unresolved emotional issues, psychological wounds, and unfinished developmental tasks.  ~ John Welwood

The Observer vs. Ego

The Observer vs. Ego

December 23, 2018

From a spiritual perspective, the ego is that aspect of the self that considers its distinction from others through identification(s). In short, the ego is our sense of ‘I’ and ‘Me’ that tends to approach life through our thinking. Spirituality, our true state of existence is discovered through identification with the Soul. From the soul’s perspective, we can choose to live our day to day life with the consciousness of observation or true witness. Psychologically, we define ego as pride about oneself. Thoughts such as my intellect, my life, my wealth, my wife and children, all need to be a specific way to acquire happiness. Where the soul reveals how life truly is, the ego tells us how life ‘should’ or could be. 

Tune in to this episode as Irma Francis and Trauma Psychologist Ernie Vecchio discuss life from the ego’s perspective and life from the soul's perspective and why making a shift from ego perspective to soul perspective is life changing.
