I’m Coming Out on Hay House Radio!

Hay House Radio

 

All of my favorite teachers are on Hay House Radio.  Dr. Wayne Dyer, Cheryl Richardson, Sonia Choquette, Marianne Williamson, Robert Holden.  One of my new found teachers is Karen McCrocklin, the host of a show called Out From the Inside.  Her show is a forum for the spiritual side of coming out.  No, I’m not gay, but the issues on her show apply to anyone who wants to come out.  Come out of a bad job, change careers, leave a bad relationship.  The energy and soul work is the same no matter what box you need to come out of.  Karen is a straight shooter with lots of energy and her show is a lot of fun.

A few weeks ago, Karen posted that she was running a contest to interview her, live on Hay House Radio.  When I saw this, I was thrilled.  This is perfect! With the launch of my new and improved website, I knew it was time to expand my audience. I needed to start talking about SOUL to the masses.  But then I froze.  I am still the closeted Founder of SOUL.  I still have a fulltime job.  Can I come out on this show and tell thousands of people about SOUL?

At that moment, my SOUL spoke to me.  It said, YES and at that moment I knew I was going to win.  I submitted the required information and a few days later received an email saying the winner would be randomly selected.  For a second I thought, crap.  But then I shifted back to that energy.  Back to that feeling that I knew I would win.   And I did.

So join me this Wednesday at Noon, EST on Hay House Radio.  I will be co-hosting the hour with my new found SoulMate, Rick Clemons, the “Coming Out Coach.”  I will be hosting the first segment of the show, so don’t be late for my coming out party on Hay House Radio.

 

I Am….KC Mojo

My Alter Ego - KC MojoI have one.  Erricka Bridgeford has one. Beyonce had one?  Do you?

I’m talking about an alter ego.  Erricka’s is Wonder Voice. Mine is KC Mojo.  Beyonce had Sasha Fierce.

Yes, “had” is the right word for Sasha Fierce.  In an interview with Allure magazine this year, Beyonce said “I don’t need Sasha Fierce anymore, because I’ve grown and now I’m able to merge the two.”

The “two” she is speaking about is her shy side and that sexy, courageous and fierce personality she portrays on stage.  Years ago, Beyonce couldn’t own that strong, that fierce part of her so Sasha Fierce was born.

KC Mojo is the decisive part of me.  I tend to not want to make a decision because I want to know what the end result of that decision will be.  But, KC Mojo doesn’t care.  She cuts through the bull shit like a ninja warrior.  She is in service to kings and queens.  She is grounded in her power.

Erricka came up with Wonder Voice as a take off of Wonder Woman.  Wonder Voice uses her voice like a mighty laser.  Wonder Voice projects positivity into a negative world.  Erricka is still building her platform as an inspirational speaker, still looking for those opportunities and knowing that the day will come when she will no longer have to look, the people/opportunities will come to her.  But for today, Wonder Voice reminds her to use the gift that she has been given in service to the world.

I think Erricka and I will be able to shed ourselves of our alter egos someday.  For like Beyonce, we will have completely merged the two parts.  But for now they serve a purpose for us and lets face it, it’s just fun plain ole fun to have an alter ego.  So who will your alter ego be?

Oh and incase you are wondering, yes that is a picture of KC Mojo I drew a few years back.  Any offers of a better rendering would be most appreciated.  KC Mojo deserves to look better than that.

 

Ya Gotta Have Heart – Adler and Ross

New York Yankees LogoMy Mom served as the inspiration for this month’s music selection of “Ya Gotta Have Heart ,” from the musical Damn Yankees.

This song is sung by the coach and his players of a baseball team who just can’t seem to win a game.  The coach tells them, actually sings to them, that the most important thing they need is heart.  Hope, determination and the will to win.  They have to believe in themselves first.

So thanks Mom for the inspiration.  I guess I should also thank the Yankees for not making the World Series.  Had they, my Mom wouldn’t have been muttering bad things about them under her breathe and I wouldn’t have been inspired.

Erricka Bridgeford

I was really struck by Erricka’s opening line for her Live Out Loud workshop, “I am whole.  I am complete.”

If today, you had to stand in front of an audience, with your arms stretched out wide declaring, “I am whole.  I am complete,” could you do it?

For me there are some days I can and some days I can’t.  As I write this, today is a day I couldn’t.  Life, as it tends to do, has revealed to me in the last few days a corner of my life where I am not living in integrity.   I’m going to deal with this and once stuff has been cleaned up, I’ll be able to make my declaration.  But does that mean at this moment I’m not whole, I’m not complete?  No.  I just need a little life tune-up.

Just like your a car, your life needs tune-ups.  If you brought your car in for a tune-up but told the mechanic to ignore the oil filter, that cruddy filter will eventually cause the whole car to break down.  I admit it.  I have a filter I ignored, some crud in my life that I need to repair.

So if like me, you initially answered no to my question, it is time for you to be  your own mechanic and diagnose where you have crud in your life.  Start by asking yourself some simple questions;

  • Why did I say no?
  • Why don’t I feel whole/complete?

Write it down.  Have a conversation with yourself.   What you’ll discover is the area of your life that needs a good tune-up.

Keep Feeding Your SOUL!
