No Shows This Week!

Hey all!

I decided to not have any shows this week. I will resume next week.

Since this is a holiday week, I was going to do the feminism
show today and not do a show on Thanksgiving, but I have decided to take the entire Thanksgiving week off from the show.

I'll update the blog with info on next week's shows. I may even change the time of the shows as well. 

So much going on right now!

Peace & blessings!

Miss Representation

Hello all!

I'm glad you joined me for yesterday's broadcast at 5pm EST on the topic of the documentary "Miss Representation."

"Miss Representation" is a documentary that was written, produced, and narrated by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, whose name I could not remember on yesterday's show. The documentary first aired on television on the OWN Oprah Winfrey Network the week of October 16th 2011. 

If you'd like to catch the documentary check your local listings of the OWN channel to see when it's coming on again, invite some your besties and have a screening and a discussion forum afterwards. Make a party of it.

This documentary is all about how girls and women are misrepresented in the media - all types of media - music, videos, movies, news, television shows, and politics. Check it the site. Click HERE

It expressed views from a diverse group teenage girls and boys and women - well-known and general public. I shared my favorite touching moments from the documentary on the radio show. 

I also talked about the importance of communication about our feelings as women and particularly, listening to the teenage girls around you and pay attention to what they really saying through their behaviors and attitudes.

Open lines of communication is the key here.

Check out the broadcast in the archives on this site or click HERE

Join me next Tuesday 11/22/11 for the topic "What is Feminism?".  I will share my thoughts and resources on feminism and why I think it's important to embrace this philosophy nowadays. 

Many blessings to you all!

Remember - Socrates said, "An unexamined life is not worth living."  Talk about your experiences, share your life with others, and listen to what others are saying to you.

Peace & blessings!

New Show & Announcement

Hello everyone,

Today's show was short and to the point. I started off with reiterating Jennifer's loving departure from the show and went on to discuss to the new energy surrounding Soul SiSTARs from this day forward.

One of my passions as a woman of color has been to contribute to the well-being in some way or another to girls and women all over the world. Therefore, I decided to use the radio show for this purpose.

I had an embarrassing, somewhat scary moment right in the middle of talking on the show while walking down Main street. A huge dog ran towards a fence barking at me. It startled me and all that was caught on the radio. Oh well! I'm alive. The dog is alive.  It's all good.

The regular show gets started again on Thursday 11/17/11 @ 11am EST.  I will be talking about a very moving documentary that I watched on OWN called Miss Representation about the images of girls and women in the media. 

Next Tuesday, I'll be giving an overview of feminism and my thoughts on it as a necessity these days to help raise awareness of the needs of all females and the consciousness of all girls and women. 

Of course, next Thursday on the 24th it's Thanksgiving. So I will not be doing a show at all. I will be feasting like all of you.

Peace & blessings to you. Tune in this coming Thursday morning!

New Schedule

Hello everyone!

The new schedule for the show is every Tuesday & Thursday morning @ 11am EST. 

See the above "Soul SiSTARs Radio" link for the media player and November shows coming soon.

Updates & 11-11-11 Shifting Gears

Hello all!

Today I started the show for 11/10/11 with some updates. First of all, Jennifer Wardlaw will no longer be a part of the Soul SiSTARS radio show.  She is moving on her path to something different. So let's wish her well and send her lots of light and healing energy as she moves forward on her path.

Today's show was a tricky one because I have studied lots of info on 11-11-11 and what I felt guided to talk about today was more about the angelic perspective of the numbers and the metaphor I believe it stands for.

The Universe is always sending us reminders about where we should be on our individual and collective paths. 

Keep in mind that the number 1 is about oneness, union (unity), and wholeness. From an angelic perspective, 1 or 11 is about paying close attention to our thoughts as they manifest our desires more quickly than ever before as of late.

So when you put all that together it makes for an interesting, yet obvious conclusion.  Find out what I discovered about this 11-11-11 phenomena in the archives of the show.  Click HERE

I will be working on changing the focus somewhat for Soul SiSTARS to more female-related topics and more creativity-related topics as well.  I am embracing this opportunity to do some work to encourage and empower myself and other girls and women to shine their lights in the world.

Please stay tuned for these fun changes to Soul SiSTARS!  In the meantime, I will be back next Thursday @ 9am EST, where my topic will be "Miss Representation."

Peace & many blessings. Thank you for being so supportive of us and walking with us throughout the changes on the show!

ONE love!

Aligning with Your Authentic Self through Prayer

On yesterday's show (11/3/11), I spoke with Rev. Diane Scribner-Clevenger from Pray Attention Ministries. We had a wonderful conversation on prayer and how to use it effectively.

Prayer is another form of meditation and Diane shared her experience and unwavering focus on sharing the importance of affirmative prayer, especially in today's world.

She was inspired by the Biblical scripture in 1 Thessaloanians 5:17, which says, "Pray without ceasing." She discussed the metaphysical interpretation of this holy text. 

I asked her questions such as:

  • What is prayer?
  • What would she tell people who has never prayed before?
  • What about people who are frustrated due to the economic issues we're facing?
...and much more.

Please go check out the archived broadcast @ http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars or click the link on this blog to listen to it.

I'd like to share two prayers that have brought me a lot of comfort over the years.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I can not change.
The courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Prayer of Protection (Unity Church)

The light of God surrounds me,
the love of God enfolds me,
the power of God protects me;
and the presence of God watches over me.
Wherever I am, God is and all is well.

Please join Jennifer and I next week on 11/10/11 as we talk about Twin Flames and the 11-11-11 Gateway @ 9am EST.  Peace & blessings!

Soul Guidance-"Letting Go"

Hi everyone : ) So today we changed the show to a Soul Guidance show because our guest couldn't be on for the Vegan and Vegetarian lifestyle show. We allowed Spirit to guide us and the topic flowed into "Letting Go." Some points we covered:

-Letting go of our defenses and shells/shields. Through allowing our emotions to bubble up to the surface, we can release whatever needs to be released. By letting go of our defenses and allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, we become invulnerable. Feel your feelings all the way through.

Quote: "To transform breakdowns into breakthroughs is the whole function of a master." ~Osho

-Letting go of the need to control. Our true control comes from BEING in this moment, surrendering, and accepting all that Life has to offer. When we make room for God to work through us, we will see miracles everywhere. When we detach from the need to know details and the outcome, we flow with Life.

-Letting go of the past. We can heal the past when we let go of it through forgiveness. In this moment we are either choosing to hold onto the past or we are accepting and letting go. When we let go, this helps us create a future that isn't just a repeat of our unforgiven past.

-Letting go of the need to identify with what we do rather than what we ARE. When we let go of identifying with roles, identifications, etc and free ourselves from that box, we can live a limitless Life.  We are no longer playing it small or taking our human role so serious. Now we can play because we know we are Spirits/Being only playing the role of a human right now.

VIDEO: This is a Nature Wisdom Meditation I did on Vulnerability. When we are letting go, we are being vulnerable.  This opens us up to Life and Love. Our strength comes from the willingness to be vulnerable and then we become invulnerable.

Next week, Tameko will be interviewing Rev. Diane Scribner Clevenger on "Aligning with Your Authentic Self through Prayer." So tune in for that interview next Thursday at 9 AM EST. Thanks for listening to this week's show! Have a beautiful weekend. We all are officially in a new chapter. Let's embrace it. : ) Namaste. <333

Ebb & Flow Show - Golden Light Meditation

On this morning's show, I shared the following 15-minute meditation.  Use this at any time and as many times as you wish to keep you balanced and forever flowing with life in the BEST possible way.

Golden Light Meditation by Tameko

Take 3 deep breaths to center yourself. You want to be present in this moment.  No distractions. 

You are at the beach. Near the ocean. See a golden ray of light coming from the Heavens streaming gently through the top of your head, down your spine, and flowing into the core/center of the Earth. 

Hold this image for at least 15 minutes. Notice the light pulsating waves of warm energy up and down your spine.  Allow your natural flow of breathing to flow in synch with the pulsating waves of energy from the Golden Ray of Light. 

Listen to the archived broadcast along with using this blog to get the full scope of the meditation. Do this for at least 15 minutes, more if you'd like. 

I also asked these three questions to your subconscious and Higher Self.

1. What ebb is happening in your life now that requires you to go with the flow?
2. Are you willing to allow peace where there is so-called chaos?
3. Are you willing to accept that chaos is in truth Divine Order?

Breathe. Flow. Visualize. Ponder. Connect. Balance.

Peace to you! Namaste!

Ebb & Flow Oracle Card

"Ocean: Ebb and Flow" card by Steven Farmer

"The Ebb and flow of Life is never more clearly represented than in oceans' movements. The tides of these great bodies of water rise and fall in regular rhythms, and the waves continue to roll to the shores in endless and varied patterns, just as they have been doing for millions of years and will continue to do so for millions more.

These tides and waves maintain a relative predictability unless other foreseeable forces of Nature intervene, which have been known to happen. Hurricanes and Earthquakes, for instance, can have a dramatic effect on the characteristics of both tides and the waves.

The oceans cover 70 percent of the Earth, and the human body averages a composition of 70 percent water. The dynamic gravitational interaction of the sun and moon that moves these massive bodies of water and creates the shifting tides also affects our human bodies in ways that we respond to instinctually, often having a great deal more influence over our moods and emotional states than we're aware of.

An important aspect in the art of living is to move with the ebb and flow of your emotions, joining their fluidity but not being captured by it. It is also not necessary to become obsessed with any particular fluctuation in mood or feeling.  They are simply emotions, often activated in ways that are completely beyond your understanding. When you neither minimize nor exaggerate the intensity and importance of your emotions, you then have a greater sense of when and how to express them.

You have been fighting the ebb and flow of your own feelings-denying your hurt, anger, or sorrow-by either attaching yourself to one or the other and nurturing it as if it were a nursing child, or else smoothing over your feelings with more practiced responses that deny and hide what is going on beneath the surface of your expression. When you attempt to constrict yourself from experiencing your emotions, it is much like trying to stem the tides that grow even more forceful with every attempt humans make to control them. Allow yourself to swim with these variations rather than resisting them."

Creative Flow

Hi everyone! So today Tameko and I did a show called Creative Flow.  We were bringing back Tameko's former blog talk radio show called Creative Flow.  We shared some writing tips and tips in general to get your creativity flowing, sacral chakra opened, and tapping into your inner child.  I started the show off with two quotes.  One by Alan Alda about Creativity and one by Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way, on how writing is healing:

“Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You can’t get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you’re doing. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover will be yourself.”

~Alan Alda

“We should write because it is human nature to write. Writing claims our world. It makes it directly and specifically our own. We should write because humans are spiritual beings and writing is a powerful form of prayer and meditation, connecting us both to our own insights and to a higher and deeper level of inner guidance.

We should write because writing brings clarity and passion to the act of living. Writing is sensual, experiential, grounding. We should write because writing is good for the soul. We should write because writing yields us a body of work, a felt path through the world we live in.

We should write, above all, because we are writers, whether we call ourselves that or not.”

~Julia Cameron

Here were the tips we shared that Tameko has shared during workshops she has done and in her new book "Light in You Unlimited" coming out soon (this Fall), tips I share with clients for Soul Exercises between their Meta-Soul Coaching sessions, and exercises from The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron:
-Burning Bowls: Write down all fears, anything holding you back, negative thought patterns, and/or any negative ideas you have on pieces of paper. Light the papers on fire in a fire proof bowl. This will be a signal to Source that you are releasing all of this and are ready to replace it with something positive.
-Morning Pages: Julia Cameron shared a very healing exercise in The Artist's Way about writing 3 pages every single morning when you wake up.  This is very meditative as you write whatever thoughts come to mind. There is no "right" way to write as long as you write for 3 pages right when you wake up. Be free and have fun with it. You can ask Source a question the night before and in the morning pages the answer can come to you if you truly listen.
-Thoughts of the Day: This is a great exercise to do if you have just moved, or have a new job or new relationship, etc. Write down before going to bed key moments that really stuck out for you through-out the day. It is good to document new experiences in your Life. You can also see the synchronicities in your Life and it gives you a clearer perspective on situations and lessons in your Life.
-Forgiveness Letters: Write a letter to whatever it is you want to release or that is holding you back. It can be a person, situation, yourself (ego), or emotions like guilt, fear, procrastination, etc. In the beginning of the letter write however you are feeling towards them. Put it ALL out there. Vent. Allow everything to bubble up to the surface. Then near the end of the letter or in a new letter think about/reflect on all that you have learned from this emotion, person, situation, and then release. Be totally honest with yourself. Show gratitude and fore-give. Because without them you wouldn't be here right now healing and moving forward.
Here is a Break-Up Letter I wrote to Fear on my blog. It was comical at times but also quite healing to write.
-Being Playful: This is a great technique in tapping into our inner child. PLAY! Play in paint, play dough, color in a coloring book with some crayons, watch a cartoon you liked as a child, listen to music from when you were a child, etc.  Do anything fun and playful.  This helps us to see the magic in Life, be in the present moment, and not take Life so seriously. Lighten up! ; )
-Everyday Meditations: In the Artist's Way, Julia talks about looking at everything as a meditation and a way to be creative.  This can be done by cooking, baking, washing dishes, decorating, fun exercises, walking, etc. Anything you are doing, if you are mindful and totally into it, it becomes a meditation and it becomes a way to express creativity.  This also taps into our inner child because as children everything we did was a fun adventure because we were totally one with whatever was at hand.
-Freedom Exercise: Julia also talks about writing down everything you aren't allowed to do that you would do if you could.  Her examples were walking outside naked, punching your boss in the face, etc. The point of this exercise is to not judge ourselves for any thoughts or feelings we may have.  To not suppress them because they aren't "good" things to do. This gives us the freedom to write however we feel and to remember we aren't those feelings so allow them to move. This is a good exercise to vent and confront any anger feelings we may have suppressed.  At first it may be hard because we police ourselves, but if you allow yourself to do it, it can be very healing as you are freeing yourself from the burden of suppressing all of those feelings.
-BONUS Exercise (Game Night): Play games with friends and/or family that were your favorite games as a child. This is also good for healing and nurturing our inner child. Have Fun!! : )))

Here are some videos I made on creativity. The first one is Quotes on Creativity to really help you in allowing your creativity to flow. This is freedom. We become vessels for the Divine. The other video is on the 10 Principles of Creativity in Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way book. Enjoy!

So next week's show will be a show called "Ebb and Flow" by Tameko. She will be relaxing at the Ocean doing a Soul Guidance styled show. So tune in next week at 9 AM EST to see what flows through her for the show.
Have a wonderful and healing weekend, Loves. October is definitely a time of change and rebirth.  Here is a great article on how October is the Turning Point month this year that I found recently. Hope it resonates! <3
You can always e-mail us at Soulsistarsradio@gmail.com with any questions, if you want to be on the show or want to contact Tameko for her Chakra Healing, Tarot/Oracle Readings, and/or Guided Meditations services and other projects (like her book Light in You Unlimited coming out soon) and you can contact Jennifer (me) if you are interested in Meta-Soul Coaching sessions or having an Astrological and/or Numerological Report done. : )
As you can see we have a lot of projects and goodies happening right now that we wanted to share with all of you. We will get even more into Light in You Unlimited and Freedom from Ashes during our first Soul SiSTARS teleseminar the first week of December! So stay tuned! : ))) Namaste!

Fatherless Children

Tonight I was joined by Charles Fox, who discussed with me a very important topic, "Fatherless Children." 

While we did not go over lots of statistics, in his line of work, Charles deals with young people daily.  He has seen firsthand the affects of young people who grow up without a father in the home.

One thing we discussed is how angry our young people seem to be and perhaps, they do not know why. 

We touched on how our relationships with our parents, or lack thereof, seems to shape our relationships with ourselves and with others throughout lives for better or for worse. 

While I did not advocate blaming the parents, I do feel that our relationships with our parents are key in our how develop our self-worth, including self-respect and self-love. 

We also discussed how important it is for young girls and young women to have a positive male role model in their lives if they did not grow up with a father in the home.  We tend to discuss the male issues, but females go through their own set of issues as a result of having a healthy relationship with their fathers or any males. 

Charles also mentioned that fatherless children is issue in many communities. 

I shared my own personal experiences with having a stepfather in the home but this didn't mean he was there mentally and emotionally. We both agreed that this is an interesting dynamic in the home as well. 

Needless to say, Charles and I had a very passionate and heartfelt discussion on this topic.  I certainly encourage you to check it out in the archives. You can click on the Soul SiSTARS Radio link above to listen to the media player there or visit http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars

Next week, we'll be back at our regular time of 9am EST on Thursday, October 13th. I will be doing a show called Creative Flow, which will include some fun ideas and tips for creative writers.

Thank you for listening to Soul SiSTARS!  Jennifer and I appreciate your support and positive energy.

Peace & many blessings!

Zen and Inner Alchemy

So today was a really interesting show. This was such a timely show with the Autumn season here in the Northern hemisphere representing the Phoenix rising and the Spring season in the Southern hemisphere representing the butterfly breaking out of the cocoon. Equinoxes are definitely a time for Alchemy.

We started the show off with this quote by Osho to connect Zen and Inner Alchemy since they are closely related:

"Zen is not a believer's world. It is not for the faithful ones; it is for those daring souls who can drop all belief, unbelief, doubt, reason, mind, and simply enter into their pure existence without boundaries. But it brings a tremendous transformation.

Hence, let me say that while others are involved in philosophies, Zen is involved in metamorphosis, in a transformation. It is authentic alchemy: it changes you from base metal into gold. But its language has to be understood, not with your reasoning and intellectual mind but with your loving heart. Or even just listening, not bothering whether it is true or not. And a moment comes suddenly that you see it, which has been eluding you your whole life."

We then got to talking about Zen and living a Zen lifestyle which is simply living a more mindful, simplistic life where we are fully in the NOW.  We had some tips to allowing this:

-Getting more intimate with our feelings. Getting out of our head and into feeling whatever feeling comes up allows us to be more present. Living from the heart and feeling is a connection to Truth.

-De-cluttering our life.  Cleaning out our cars, houses, work spaces, etc. Letting go of what we no longer need. Keeping it simple in Life. Our Life is a reflection of what is going on inside.

-Detaching from outcomes, people, things, thoughts, feelings etc.  Allowing all to flow in and out of Awareness.  Simply being the Witness.  Knowing that we are Joy and it doesn't come from "out there."

-Embracing our inner child. Having fun. Playing games.  Doing things that make us lighten ourselves up and become focused on this present moment more and more.

-Giving our full attention to whatever we are doing right NOW. If we are taking a shower, for example, truly feeling how the water feels on our body and tuning into our senses.  This will help us see the miracles all around us and that the ordinary is truly extraordinary.

-Being in Nature.  This helps us to be more present and to clear our minds.  We can feel the ONEness with ALL and it puts things into perspective for us.  This also reassures us that in this moment, there are endless possibilities.  We have no limits once we let go of the belief in limits.

We then talked about Inner Alchemy and how the word Alchemy comes from Kemet (ancient Egypt).  Alchemy means transformation or metamorphosis.

We both talked about how our inner alchemy has been surrendering more to this moment and allowing everything to be how it is so we can flow with it.  This helps us be our true Selves more and be at Peace.

Tameko shared with us a powerful affirmation that is good to incorporate in your day: "All events flow towards a beautiful outcome."

Here is a video I did on Zen proverbs, quotes and sayings. Enjoy!

So next week's show will be Tameko interviewing Charles Fox about "Fatherless Children" This will be an eye opening interview about this topic and how we can heal our past so we can move forward.  The time for this show will be different from our regular time.  It will be at 11 PM EST.  Our shows afterwards will be at 9 AM EST again.  Check back soon to see the upcoming shows that we have scheduled.  We have some great shows coming up and different projects Soul SiSTARS will be doing in the upcoming months.  I am moving soon so I will be back on Soul SiSTARS on Thursday October 27th at 9 AM EST  I look forward to being reunited with all of you and sharing new insights then.  Have a wonderful weekend Divine siblings! Namaste. <333

Meditation Music Day

Our show for this past Thursday (9/22) was an excellent meditation music day.  I played two African Drumming Circle mp3s.

In between the songs, I pulled an archangel oracle card by Doreen Virtue, which was Chakra Clearing.  This suggested to get some energy healing work done such as massage, Reiki session, or meditation.

After the second song, I pulled a tarot card for everyone. It was the Page of Cups, which suggested that a message or messages of love would be coming to everyone that day and during the weekend from one or more people.  I also suggested that everyone listening be that person to send a loving message to someone that day. 

Check out the archives to hear the nice music that really make you want to get up and dance a celebration of life and love. 

Tune in next Thursday (9/29/11) at 9am EST, as Jennifer and I will discuss Zen and Inner Alchemy. 

Peace & blessings!

Repair vs. Preventive Health Interview

Today we had a VERY informative interview with Amir Muhammad, a very passionate aspiring health and wellness entrepreneur and business owner.  He gave us some great tips on how to take preventive measures in regards to our health.  Preventive health practices make it so we don't have to take repair procedures (surgery, medicine, etc).  This cuts down on not only on a lot of money, time, frustration, and stress, but it can save your life!  This can help us live a happy and healthy Life.  When our body is healthy, our soul is healthy and vice-versa.  When our mind is healthy, our body is healthy.  Everything is interconnected.  Amir's main message is that the body can heal itself and we can find what we need to prevent disease or heal disease in Nature.  Gaia has all that we need to keep our temples in tip-top shape hehe.  So some of the tips (be sure to listen to the archived show for the plethora of rich information Amir shared with us) that Amir shared with us this morning were:

-Drinking more water. Try aiming at drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water daily.  Water has so many healing properties.  Water and fiber together are great for healthy digestion and elimination.

-Aim at eating 6 small meals a day and eating some healthy snacks in between.  This will give your body the energy it needs through-out the day.

-Eating more organic fruits and vegetables.  Some fruits and veggies he mentioned were: broccoli (great for women's health), blackberries (very high in antioxidants), blueberries (high in antioxidants), peaches, mangoes, strawberries (high in vitamin c), and acerola cherries (the best fruit for vitamin c intake).

-Cutting back on sugary foods and overcooked, fried, and processed foods.  Try eating mangoes or other sweet fruits when transitioning to cutting back on sugary foods and aim at eating foods that are broiled, steamed, and/or fresh.

-Finding a work-out that you can do consistently that you enjoy doing.  Finding something fun to you will ensure that you stick with it and it can be a great stress reliever!  Here's a great quote by Amir in regards to exercise, "Go at your pace, it's not a race, it's a lifestyle change."

So next week will be a meditation music special on Thursday at 9 AM EST.  We have some exciting changes that will be happening in October for the show and us personally.  So stay tuned for some really neat things!  We will be adding some pages to this blog that will be updating you with what Soul SiSTARS has in store. ; ) hehehe  So have a wonderful weekend yall!  NAMASTE!

Meditation Music Day

On this morning's show (9/8/11), I played two wonderful and very different meditation songs for our listeners. 

I started off the show with Ray Lynch's meditation song, The Temple, which is a beautiful instrumental perfect for sitting and walking meditation, yoga, or tai chi/qigong. 

Then, I offered the 48th Verse of the Tao Te Ching, which says:

Learning consists of daily accumulating,
The practice of the Tao consists of daily diminishing;
decreasing and decreasing, until doing nothing,
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.

True mastery can be gained,
by letting things go their own way.
It cannot be gained by interfering.

Then, I shared the song, Karuna Sagari Ma, by C.C. White, whose CD, This is Soul Kirtan, was released today during Bhakti Fest at Joshua Tree.  Check out her website for a free download of the same song I played on the show here ~ http://www.soulkirtan.com/

Jennifer and I will be back next Thursday, 9/15/11, with our special guest, Amir Muhammad, as he talks with us about repair and preventive health care.  Please be sure to join us next week at 9am EST.

Soul Guidance-"Forgiveness"

Hey everyone : )  Our special guest Andrea Medina could not join us today because she is still recovering from hurricane Irene.  Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the hurricane on the East coast and we send healing energy and vibes. 

So today during our new time slot (9 AM EST) we decided to do a Soul Guidance show, where we allowed our souls to guide us in dialogue.  The show that our souls created was basically about forgiveness and healing the past.  Some things we talked about:

-Acceptance of the past and acceptance of ourselves and our current situations allows us to move forward.

-Healing the past through acceptance frees us of emotional baggage.

-Letting go of guilt feelings when walking away from certain situations or even family members so we can heal and move forward on our spiritual journey.

-Tameko brought up the story of the Buddha when he left his father's palace and left behind his wife and child in search of the root of suffering and enlightenment.  You can see the documentary on the Buddha called "The Buddha" on PBS's website. http://video.pbs.org/video/1461557530/

-Allowing everything to naturally occur and letting go of resistance.

-Choosing Love over fear in every moment.

This show was very emotional and powerful for us as it brought up personal experiences in relation to forgiveness.  We really enjoyed seeing how Spirit would guide us for dialogue! Next week we will be having a meditation music show.  The following week on the 15th will be an interview with special guest Amir Muhammad about Repair vs Preventive Health.

"Forgiveness means giving up all hope of a better past." ~Lama Sabachthani

I also mentioned A Course in Miracles' definition of forgiveness and here is a video I did on ACIM quotes on forgiveness:

Namaste : )

Third Eye Chakra & the 4 Clairs

On Thursday (8/25/11) night's show, I talked about the third eye and the 4 clairs - clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance. 

The third eye chakra is located between your two physical eyes. It's color association is indigo and it is the seat of intuition, insight, and even physically helps with your eyes, face, sinuses, and ears. 

To help clear and balance this chakra, you can chant, OM (aum).  Check out the broadcast to hear me demonstrate it.

I enjoyed discussing the 4 clairs:

  • Clairvoyance - the intuitive ability to see
  • Clairaudience - the intuitive ability to hear
  • Clairsentience - the intuitive ability to feel
  • Claircognizance - the intuitive ability to know
Check out the archived broadcast to hear more detailed information on the 4 clairs and the third eye chakra. 

Intuitively yours,

Meditation Music Special

Hello everyone~

Tonight's show was all meditation music for 15 minutes, which I enjoyed sharing because the music is my own creation. Both songs are perfect for yoga, Qigong, or belly dance practice.

Breaking Out of the Cocoon

This show was very exciting because there were so many synchronicities with this show topic.  The full moon being on Saturday definitely was not a coincidence as the full moon represents shedding what no longer serves you aka breaking out of the cocoon.  And in numerology terms the date, 8/11/2011, added up to a "5" day and 5 represents freedom and transformation.  So some of the things we talked about tonight were:

-Acknowledging that you have created a cocoon or a "prison" or a box for yourself is the first step to breaking free from it.

-Allowing this transformation/process to take place and naturally run its course.  Letting go of resistance and allowing any pain or discomfort during this phase instead of fighting it, will help you break free.

-Thanking the cocoon period because it did serve its purpose in your metamorphosis.

-Having the courage to trust in the process and having the courage to allow the cocoon to fall away.  Having the courage to allow the world to see YOU.  Your radiant true Self.

-I shared this quote from my blog Fear as a Compass by Ram Dass:
“It’s only when caterpillarness is done that one becomes a butterfly. That again is part of this paradox. You cannot rip away caterpillarness. The whole trip occurs in an unfolding process of which we have no control.” I also have other butterfly transformation quotes here.

-Tameko shared a quote from her blog Journey of a Butterfly: "Transformation is more than a process, it's a way of Life."

-Tameko also talked about her video/blog entry called "A Mid-Life Chrysalis" which can be found here.

-You can also learn more about Butterfly Medicine, like Tameko, was talking about on the show. If you want to research it just google Butterfly Medicine.

-Here's a video I created called Freedom from the Cocoon:

So next week we will have special guest Rachel Richmond for our show on Divine Guidance.  We are really excited for that!  And we will have all of Rachel's contact information up next week.  So tune in for that show on Thursday at 11 PM EST.  Also, we will be changing the time slot for this show starting on Aug 25th for our Third Eye Chakra and 4 Clair's show.  The time from now on starting on Aug 25th will be at 9 AM EST.  So hopefully you can continue to listen to us live with our earlier show time.  All archived shows can be found at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars  E-mail us if you want to be a guest or for our Soul Guidance feature at soulsistarsradio@gmail.com.  And our twitter with updates is @SoulSiSTARSbtr and FaceBook is Soul SiSTARS.  Have a wonderful weekend divine siblings!

Divine Feminine & the Sacral Chakra

Hello everyone!  Jennifer and I just completed part 2 of the Yin/Yang and Divine Feminine energies series a few moments ago on Blog Talk Radio.  We had a blast! 

We shared information on the Sacral Chakra, which is located between the navel and base of the spine or groin area.  The color of it is orange. It spins in a clockwise motion when it is balanced. So naturally you should visualize your sacral chakra spinning. The Sacral Chakra is associated with the Earth element, which is also a part of the Yin energies that we discussed on Thursday night's show as well.  So it is associated with feminine energies/qualities/aspects.

As for the Divine Feminine, we had a wonderful time talking about Mother Earth (Gaia) and how she needs our love and attention.  There is nothing wrong with revering the Earth and all of nature.  Heal the Earth, we Heal ourSelves.

We discussed the Triple Goddess, which is the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone.  This triple deity or Feminine Holy Trinity represents the cycle of life as well as the cycle of the moon. 

Maiden - Birth - Waxing Moon
Mother - Life - Full Moon
Crone - Death/Rebirth - Waning Moon

By honoring Goddesses or Female Deities, we are honoring that part of ourselves that embodies those same qualities.  Thus, we heighten our divine feminine energies, which can heal the world. 

We talked about how particularly women of color and women in general are in need of embracing their feminine qualities and energies. 

Some suggestions for embracing the Divine Feminine:

Chakra Clearing (Sacral Chakra)
Yin Yoga

For further study & research:

Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue
Crystalinks - http://www.crystalinks.com and search for Triple Goddess or Goddess

You can simply Google, Bing, or Yahoo - Yin/Yang, Divine Feminine, Triple Goddess, Sacral Chakra and you will find youreslf in the midst of a plethora of information.

Join us next week on 8/11/11 @ 11pm EST for our show called, "Breaking Out of the Cocoon."  This is a show you don't want to miss as we will be discussing true FREEDOM. 

Peace & blessings!

Yin and Yang Energies Show

Hey yall! So tonight was a very exciting topic.  Tameko aka Ms. Energy lol and I loved doing this show.  It was on Yin and Yang energies.  It was the first part of a series we are doing this week.  Tomorrow night at 11 PM EST will be our show on the Divine Feminine and the Sacral Chakra (my favorite...ORANGE..yay! lol)  So tune in tomorrow night for that one!

So as a recap of tonight's show on Yin and Yang energies, SiSTAR Tameko and I talked about:

-The importance of embracing both Yin AND Yang energies.

-How embracing both energies leads to peace, balance, wholeness, and harmony.

-Yin: Dark, Slow, Yielding, Water, Earth, Cold, Passive, femininity, night time, the Moon.

-Yang: Light, Fast, Aggressive, Fire, Sky, Hard, Solid, Masculinity, day time, and the Sun.

-That Yin and Yang are complete opposites yet perfectly equal.

-Dualities and Nonduality/ONEness

-Daoism and Tameko read verse 4 from the Dao Te Ching.  You can research furthermore on Daoism on wiki or http://taoism.about.com/

-Tameko shared some techniques that help in balancing Yin and Yang like the art of Qigong.

-Tameko also shared a technique for awakening our Yin energy with Yin Yoga (here are some links for Yin Yoga)-http://www.yogajournal.com/practice/2545?page=2 AND http://www.yogajournal.com/practice/580

-Tameko also shared a technique where you can look up a picture of the Yin-Yang symbol and use it for a meditation by staring at it for about 5-10 minutes.  This will help with balancing the two energies within.

-Lol Tameko was on fire tonight because she also shared an affirmation that came through to her which was "I AM in Balance. I AM in Harmony. I AM at Peace."

So those were some of the highlights of tonight's show.  And we are really excited for tomorrow's show at 11 PM EST on the Divine Feminine and the Sacral Chakra.  So we will be talking about the Goddesses, Gaia aka Mother Earth, and so much more! So be sure to tune into that show.  And if you can't catch any of our shows live, then you can always listen to the recording here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars  Our e-mail for any potential guests or for our Soul Guidance feature is soulsistarsradio@gmail.com and be sure to follow us on twitter @SoulSiSTARSbtr for updates.  One last thing, lol, we also have a facebook page-Soul SiSTARS!

Soul Guidance

I made a last minute change to tonight's show from "Natural Hair Care" to "Soul Guidance."  Jennifer wasn't feeling well, so I hosted the show with impromptu soul guidance.

A brief recap of what came through as I channelled information:

  • The mind is the soul. The soul is the mind.
  • At some point in our lives we question life with questions such as "Why me?" "What's going on with my life?"
  • I have discovered that these questions are keys that unlock the journey of self-discovery to our higher consciousness.
  • Shifting consciousness from sleep to awake, from unaware to aware. 
  • Be sure to document your journey through digital media or writing.  But especially, through writing with pen and notebook. 
Check out the broadcast in our archives @ http://blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars or click on the above page "Soul SiSTARS Radio" to listen to the player on the site for the archived show.

Be sure to send questions to Jennifer and I for more Soul Guidance for future shows.  Next week's show is another 2-parter on "Yin/Yang Energies & the Divine Feminine" Thursday 8/4 @ 11pm and Friday 8/5 @ 11pm EST. 

Thank you for tuning in!

Staying True to You Part 1&2

Hey everyone! : )  So this week we did our first 2 parter show.  We were really excited for that! The first part was on Thursday and was about staying true to you in the midst of societal expectations or expectations from family and friends.  Some things we talked about during Part 1 were:

-Having a good sense of self esteem and empowering ourselves.

-Speaking up about any abuse we have been through and bringing it up the Light so we can move forward.

-Loving and embracing every aspect about yourself (physical, emotional, mental, etc)

-Letting go of comparing yourself with other people (friends, family, the media, society in general).

-Living for YOU and not for people's approvals.

-Making your JOY top priority. Letting go of needing to be "right" by other people's opinions.

-And having the COURAGE to unveil the mask you have been hiding behind and "coming out of the closet" in all aspects!

Here is a video I did that I feel relates to this topic called "Unveil the Mask and Let Your Light Shine":

So tonight on part 2 we focused more on the Spiritual aspect and talked a little about our Spiritual journeys.  Tameko started the show off by talking about the beautiful and insightful video she did called "Many Roads One Destination":

Some of the things we talked about tonight on Part 2 were:

-All paths in Life (religious or not) are okay because it is the Path for You.  If we all are going to a destination of "6" then it doesn't matter how we add it up, 1+5, 4+2, 3+3 because it all adds up to and leads to "6."

-Trusting in your heart for guidance.  Listening to this guidance in meditation or stillness.

-Everyone is a Spiritual Being playing the role of a human right now.

-Seeing through the illusions we hold onto to see our true radiant nature.

-Allowing yourself to explore different religions, teachings, etc. Not keeping yourself in a box.

-Tameko shared a meditation tip.

*And Tameko also recommended a book called "The Courage to Be Yourself" by Sue Patton Thoele*

So we really had fun with this topic and next week we will be talking about Natural Hair Care.  Sharing some tips and talking about our natural hair journeys.  So tune into that show next Thursday at 11 PM EST.  And check out all upcoming shows and any archived show at blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars.  Namaste! <3

The Truth About GMO's

This show was a real eye-opener for both Jennifer and I, as we interviewed Janet Darby, an advocate for healthy living and empowering one's self with more knowledge to help with more conscious living.

Janet explained that a GMO is a Genetically Modified Organism, which means that the plant's DNA is altered.  GMO's can be found in such common foods as corn, tomatoes, papayas, etc.  In addition, many of these foods are processed into other foods, which can make them GMO products.

Janet shared a few alternatives for those of us who may not be sure what our foods have in them, no matter where we shop. 

  • Try growing your own fruits and vegetables
  • Participate in a community gardening project in your area
  • Empower yourself with more knowledge about food
  • Check out Wikipedia on GMO's
  • For more information on what's going on with your food, check out http://www.naturalnews.com
We were very excited to have Janet on with us on Thursday's show.  We hope you will take a listen to the show in the archives @ http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars or click the page at the top of the blog to listen to the player there. 

Jennifer and I hope everyone empowers themselves with more information about the food they are eating.  We will certainly do the same ourselves. 

CORRECTION:  On last night's show, I stated at the end that our next week's show is on Natural Hair Care.   It's actually a 2-part series called Staying True to You, which will be airing Thursday, 7/21 @ 11pm EST and Friday, 7/22 @ 11pm EST.  Our "Natural Hair Care" show is scheduled to air on Thursday, 7/28 @ 11pm EST. 

So, please join us for these inspirational and informative shows we have coming up very soon. 

Peace & many blessings to you all! Thanks for listening!

Additional Tips for Solar Plexus & Throat Chakras

Throat Chakra

  • Singing or Chanting

Solar Plexus

  • Challenge yourself with something you've never done before

Our Solar Plexus & Throat Chakras Show

So this week Tameko and I talked about the Throat chakra and the Solar Plexus chakra.  We picked these two chakras because we each have had issues with them.  I have had issues with healing my throat chakra (speaking my truth, allowing my feelings to show, expressing myself-creatively, and staying true to myself) and Tameko has had issues with healing her Solar Plexus Chakra (nurturing/honoring herself and not giving so much of herself to others).

We opened it up by discussing the imbalanced and balanced archetypes for each.  For the Solar Plexus, the imbalanced archetype is the Servant where the person does not honor themselves and doesn't realize they deserve better than what they are experiencing.  When balanced, the archetype turns into the Warrior.  For the Throat Chakra, the imbalanced archetype is called the Silent Child where the person holds back from speaking their truth or showing their emotions. When balanced, this is the Communicator archetype.

Tameko went through brief descriptions for each chakra. Like how the Solar Plexus is symbolized by the color yellow and Earth element.  It deals with power, anger, confidence, and self esteem issues.  Health issues when imbalanced could be diabetes, stomach ulcers, or increased belly weight to name a few.  For the Throat chakra, it is symbolized by the color blue and is related to the ear chakras and the sound element.  This is all about creativity, self expression, speaking our truth, and honesty.  Some health issues if imbalanced could be throat, neck, and thyroid problems.

Some of the tips we had for the Throat chakra were expressing yourself more: talking, writing, singing, video blogging, etc.  Just allowing yourself to feel your feelings, and express however you are feeling or thinking to anyone around you.  Truly communicating, by balancing talking and listening. 

An interesting thing we found out was that each chakra we have issues with the most were related to our life path numbers in numerology (1 for Tameko and 3 for me).  1's deal with leadership, power, courage and 3's deal with self expression and creativity.  So it would be interesting to look at your life path in numerology and see if it relates to the chakra(s) you have been healing. Take this fun chakra test I found to see which chakras are balanced or imbalanced.  And here is a place where you can find out your life path number.

Tameko talked about her latest victory of going infront of the camera and singing for a few videos.  Since she has loved to sing for such a long time and this is truly her passion.  This helped her throat chakra AND solar plexus chakra with that courageous step. (yay Tameko! hehe)  It's intereting how connected the chakras really are.

Tameko is going to do another blog entry with some more tips she shared Thursday in healing the throat and solar plexus chakras since this is definitely her expertise. So as I go make some tea for my throat right now (a little scratchy), lol!  I am signing off with a video I did about a week ago on Staying True to You (a challenge) as I think this ties in really well with the chakra I have had the most trouble with (the throat).

Listen in next week on Thursday at 11 PM EST when we have our first guest and interview with Janet Darby on spreading the awareness of GMO's on our "The Truth About GMO's" show. If you want to be a guest on Soul SiSTARS e-mail us at soulsistarsradio@gmail.com.  Also, follow us on twitter at @SoulSiSTARSbtr.  : )

Peace and Blessings! : )))

Being at a Crossroads Video by Jennifer

Being at a Crossroads in Life

This past Thursday's show was an amazing one.  Jennifer and I talked about our personal journeys in regards to being at a crossroads in life.  We offered several tips on how handle being at a crossroads in life. 

*Honor where you are on the path. 
*Don't resist it.
*Be gentle with yourself at the crossroads.

And these are just a few of the tips Jennifer and I shared on the show.  We had such a great time sharing on this topic. 

We explained how being at a crossroads can mean different things for everyone.  Yet, we find that it's usually about letting go of the old to embrace the new. 

Check out Thursday's show on this topic in the archives @ http://www.blogtalkradio.com/soulsistars

Next week's topic is "Solar Plexus & Throat Chakras."  We look forward to connecting with you on this topic as well.

Our "Following Your Dreams" Show

So our second show was tonight.  Well technically yesterday lol.  And it was on Following Your Dreams.  We experienced some technical difficulties as Blog Talk Radio switched up the technology on us lol, but we really had a great soulful conversation on following your dreams, heart, and passions!

This is a very important topic to Tameko and I because we feel as if we are in the process of letting go of fear and following our Divine Plan, our dreams, our heart, etc.  And we feel as if this is so important for everyone to allow.  We had so many discussions, just on the phone, about our personal experience with this.  Where we feel as if sometimes when you seem to lose things, it is the Universe's way of opening you up to truly living a Life that resonates with your heart.  It is a blessing in disguise and may seem confusing and scrambled, but everything happens for a reason.  And when you look back a year from now to where you were now, you will be like "Ahh..I see now, the pieces were just all coming together."

Tameko and I decided to take on the topic at hand by sharing tips we came up with in regards to following you dreams.  So Tameko started out with her first tip which was having courage.  Being able to leave your comfort zone and face that fear.  This tied into one of my points of using fear as guidance rather than running away from it or resisting it.  To be able to feel the fear and do it anyways!

Then my next tip was letting go of comparisons.  Because I personally have had trouble following my dreams because I have compared myself with other people and their life path and even comparing myself with myself in the past.  Embracing your unique life path and living authentically takes courage, but it is crucial in following our dreams. This also requires us to let go of others' expectations and opinions of us and just do you!  Tameko then brought up how she has felt herself comparing herself with others even in the spiritual community in regards to thinking to herself  "Wow maybe I should be doing more than I am now."  We both realized that where we are NOW is where we are "supposed" to be.

Tameko then went into her tip which was having Trust. Trusting that everything is working out and embracing the unknown.  She mentioned that when you are so used to a certain routine and feeling as if you know what to expect, it can feel scary to let go of this and fully embrace the unknown.  To let go of the past.  I mentioned that letting go of the need for control is really important also.  This transitioned me into my next tip which was surrendering and trusting in Life.  I mentioned that when we fully trust and let the Universe handle the "how's," doors open where we once thought were walls.  We are in alignment with the Universe now, when we have that courage to follow our hearts.

So I came up with another tip during the show and it was to let go of resistance.  Sometimes we resist things because we fear change, but that fear is guiding us to delve deeper into our hearts.  Resistance can keep us from following our dreams.  But simply feel that resistance and allow it.  It was funny because Tameko's last point tied into this too.  And we also mentioned the importance of detaching from outcomes and remaining open to the endless possibilities.  Tameko talked about how synchronicities happen all the time to help us in following our dreams.  And to follow your inner guidance.

So we LOVED this discussion and next week's show is on Being at a Crossroads and we feel as if this is kind of like a Part 2 to Following Your Dreams since they can relate soo much!  So we will be back to do that show next Thursday at 11 PM EST. : )  Also, if you want to write into us with any questions for our Soul Guidance feature, e-mail us at soulsistarsradio@gmail.com.  We will answer your questions and then feature one answer LIVE on our show, anonymously and related to the show topic at hand. : )  So thank you for listening to Soul SiSTARS and checking out our blog!  We have so much in store for you! Peace and Blessings!

Our 1st Broadcast!

Jennifer and I had a blast on Thursday night with our very first broadcast together.  We touched base on what everyone can expect from us on the show.

We discussed the Full Moon energies as of late and how they were affecting us.  We even talked a little bit about the shifts that are happening globally and how it is a reflection of what is going on with us on a deeply personal level.

Also, Jennifer shared some of the interesting topics we have lined up for everyone on future shows such as:

  • Natural Hair Care
  • Astrology
  • Yin/Yang energies
  • Divine Feminine
  • People of Color within the New Age/Lightworker/Spiritual Community
  • Forgiveness and Releasing the Past
  • Raw Foods/Veganism/Vegetarianism
And this is just the tip of the iceberg for Soul SiSTARS!!!!  We will also let you all know what topics are coming up for at least 3 to 4 shows in advance, so you can submit questions to receive a bit of guidance from both, Jennifer and I.  We will randomly pick one question per topic from all questions received via e-mail to soulsistarsradio@gmail.com, read it live on the air, and answer the question to the best of our spiritual abilities.
