  • How and Why We Daydream
  • This week, let's talk about Daydreaming!

    Everyone, has daydreams on a regular basis. Daydreams can get us into trouble, but they can also prove to be the source of our personal fulfillment.

    So, let's take a good look at Why and How We Daydream. And more, why we often get away with daydreaming before we get into real trouble. Now, there is a difference between Daydreaming vs. Mindfulness. It may seem paradoxical, but the truth is we need both, and both can work together. We'll find out how.

    But negative Daydreams, or Daymares can often be troublesome. So we'll look at Dealing with Worry-Based Fantasies and Daydreams

    Some Daymares can can provide relief and release. Those are known as Cathartic and Do-Over Daydreams

    When people say they "dream" of being president or a billionaire or an artist or whatever it is they fantasize about--they are daydreaming those goals, literally envisioning them in their mind's eye. We'll look at Daydreams as a Source of Innovation & Motivation

    But, what if Your Daydreams are Stuck in a Rut? I have seven suggestions for rebooting your daydreams.

    And finally, Is your child a daydreamer? Dont let them label it A.D.D. right off the bat!

  • Your Creative Muse and You
  • Listen:
  • If you're the creative type, you probably spend way too much time beating yourself up about how UNCREATIVE you are. Well, your friend Hawthorne is here to help. Many people think they have a clear idea of what it means to be creative, and a whole lot of myths have been built up around that notion. It may be too much to say that Everything You Thought You Knew About Creativity is Wrong, but this week we'll bust some creativity myths that, hopefully, once you see past them, will unleash your inner creative genius.

    Now, Nothing gets more in the way of your creativity than your own fears and inhibitions. So, I want to share with you a whole bunch of very powerful tips on how you can Start Overcoming Fear, Right Now

    From Ancient Greece, the Muses have inspired poets, musicians, writers, and philosophers down the ages, and they inspire us today. We don't talk enough about them in modern Paganism. Let's take a closer look at them this week.

    Plus I have on tape a guided meditation for you to listen to. This is called, "Creative Visualization".

    And if that's not enough, I have some Amazing Quotes from well-known people, to Feed Your Creative Soul

  • On Fate and Fatalism
  • Listen:
  • This week is all about Fate and Fatalism.

    We all like to beleive that we are the Masters of our own Fate. But cultures around the world and down the ages have all felt quite differently.

    Fate may or may not be the plaything of the Gods. But, for YOU, Little Ant, that hardly matters much.

    So this week we take a look at the Morai and that thread they've been weaving for us. Then there's Karma and Kismet to consider.

    And right up to modern times, philosophers continue to argue about just what Fate is, and how it differs from Fatalism, Determinism ... and about a dozen other "isms" that all describe what you CAN'T Do.

  • Sacred Geometry
  • Listen:
  • The belief that God created the universe according to a geometric plan has ancient origins. I'm not so sure that anything created the universe - or more accurately, the Multi-verse - I kind of believe that it created itself, or in a word, it's come-of itself.

    But, whatever the case may be I think it's fair-enough to say that there is an intelligence - perhaps an intelligence WE would consider to be Devine - that seems to be, shall we say, in the Director's Chair.

    And if that's fair to say, then what might be the tools by which Devine Intelligence directs the show? The Ancients, and many people today, believe the answer can be found in mathematics; specifically Geometry.

    So this week we delve into the world of Pythagoras and Plato. We enter Metatron's Cube and come out in the Fourth Dimension!

    Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show!
