Be Grateful AF with Michael Ian Cedar
Dec 17 2020 78 mins  
Of all our greatest searching for purpose and value in life, No bigger search exists throughout humanity than our search for meaning. Celebrated psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl, in his groundbreaking book “Man’s Search For Meaning” shared this insightful view: “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” On today’s show we explore: Reshaping our language of struggler and fear in order to find Gratitude in our challenges. Then resisting our urge of Fight, Flight Or fear- reframing our response for The Modern World. Living Life on Your Terms- Making a conscious choice to live as a vibrant human being. Owning your inner voice in order to silence the inner critic and remove the urge to self sabotage our endeavors. Learning to separate our human traits from our evolutionary and generational patterning to order to be more aligned with the essence of our authentic self. We also look at how we can form a more responsible human evolution towards our fellow human beings, the planet and within our existence in the universe. To borrow from the great Albert Einstein quote: “The most important decision we make, the one which is most aligned within our essence, is whether we live in a friendly or hostile universe” It becomes our responsibility to then decide whether we act in harmony within our responses, creating an existence that contributes to the forward motion of creation. Join us on this very humorous and thought provoking conversation with Leadership Coach and Motivational Speaker, Michael Ian Cedar of The Legacy Of You about becoming more grateful on The Light Inside.

What mental, physical and psychological states take place as we move into mindfulness?

Two Minute Tuesday - Head Start To Riches
Oct 27 2020 1 mins  
Head Start To Riches Education is Empowerment. As a recent opportunity to partner with Head Start 2 Riches Team- an educational company that offers a unique wealth building course for children. Their mission is to bring awareness and insight to children, instilling within them the knowledge to reach for their dreams and achieve. We shared this inspiring message answering what head start we are giving at a young age which allowed us to reach for our awareness of success- empowering the leaders of tomorrow.  Question: What type of head start was given to you? You can hear how this advantage became our most meaningful lesson on our journey of discovery in life. .This mission and purpose is the vision we live every day here at The Light Inside. Be sure to support the mission at Head Start To Riches- empowering the leaders of tomorrow with insight and purpose to reach for their dreams. Read the transcript here: The greatest thought-seed ever planted was the notion of discovery. I am grateful this example was set by my mother throughout our young lives. Seek knowledge- Knowledge is empowering.  When we reach for understanding and meaning- it becomes purpose. Those who know- do. Awareness is freeing. It moves us into alignment with others and the world around us. It’s an equalizing force of nature that brings us together. When we connect we create. Marie Curie said “Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.” To understand we must first search for meaning. Reach for knowledge. Engage context. Form a thought. Then feel with our hearts. You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individual. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity- our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful. When we each become responsible for our own betterment, the world will simply become better. We have to ask- how can I simply be of service to myself and others, then be responsible for shaping our own destinies. The greatest advantage one can be lies in being an advantage to others. Seeking knowledge, meaning and understanding empowers that. Ultimately realize that the greatest riches we gain in life are in enriching others. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/support


The Universal Power Of Energy with Kerrian Fournier
Oct 20 2020 65 mins  
The average human being spends roughly 60,00 thoughts a day shaping and forming their world. Often, very sadly- the large majority of those thoughts are negatively aligned and statistically - many of them are repetitive. The Buddha said- What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract What you imagine, you create. Our thoughts and and our actions contain the energy of the universe. How we wear that energy determines every step of our course. Every path we follow in this life and into the worlds we come to experience and know….for ourselves and others. Our guest today, Kerrian Fournier, shares this talk about the Universal power of energy, and how energy influences the way we act because it forms the “lens” through which we perceive the world. The choice in how we see that world so often becomes the reality we live and the experience we create. Join us today as we learn how to play with your perception of that world view and shift how your energy signs within it- On this very insightful and thought-provoking episode of The Light Inside.

Two Minute Tuesday - Finding Purpose in Change
Aug 18 2020 2 mins  
It's Two Minute Tuesday on The Light Inside. Every Tuesday, we share our greatest lessons and insights. Short thoughts of discovery that help us all change, evolve and become our best version of ourselves. This Tuesday, we talk about change- how it is the one constant in life. Why making friends with change leads us towards our ultimate discoveries and adds deeper meaning and purpose in our lives. As entrepreneurs and leaders, Change is one of our greatest challenges. What Have I learned? Embrace it! Heraclitus said- “The only constant in life is change” We all face changes every day – whether it’s a simple change in the weather, our schedule or expected change of seasons. Change affects us all. And we each deal with change differently. The only constant in life, the only thing we can be sure will happen- is change. Find fulfillment in the being, becoming and the evolution. Embrace and enjoy the process. Be comfortable in your skin. Change is where we find alignment-in the discovery, because in the discovery lies true balance and FLOW. Life IS change. There is no comfort in the knowing, Only the “unknowing”. And by understanding that change is the only constant in life its more easy to recognize what Heraclitus is saying. The way up and the way down are one and the same. Living and dead, waking and sleeping, young and old- All are the same. These things are the 'same' in that they are all subject to change. They arise from one change to vanish into another. All things, constantly-are changing. And, in that regard, they are the same- All things “come into being” through opposition. Come into being. I mean...WOW! How awesome IS that? It’s a process - Discovery. The being is not the destination and arriving is not the result. The process IS the result. Simply being Change. Its easy to observe the contenting of forces in nature. And yet as human beings, we resist the natural movement of life. Instead we cling to what is known- what we consider safe. "In opposition there is agreement- between unlikes, the fairest harmony." It is in changing that we find purpose. Meaning. Focus. And Direction. In change we discover who and what we are each meant to be. All that we will become. The greatest lesson I have learned- Embrace the change. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thelightinside/support

Be a More Powerful Voice for Action and Change- June 4th Special Episode
Jun 04 2020 3 mins  
I come to you today with a heavy heart- The events of the past week have been a painful reminder. The time for a real and lasting change is at hand. We have to have to conversations that are all to discomfiting- Both internally and externally. Its time for life as we know it. The status Quo, to change. Systematic Racism must be dismantled. We can’t just be hollow cogs in a system of systematic racism and oppression. Life is about deeper connection. Deeper meaning for all. It's about equal human interaction and exchange. And Most importantly- forming a deeper understand. It's about finding balance and creating harmony as the human community. Its time we realistically acknowledge the very real and potentially life threatening struggle faced daily by People of Color. It's time we have the difficult and uncomfortable conversations about racism and white privilege. Its beyond time that we truly address exactly what that struggle is. How do we each perceive it? How do we each act in regards to it? How can we build more empathy towards the struggle of People of Color? Then share a greater understanding a responsibility to dismantle it. We are taking a moment to pause. In acknowledgement and respect- of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Sean Reed, Tony McDade and the many other People of Color who have lost their lives. Who have struggled against the hands and feet of systematic racism and oppression-Simply because of the color of their skin. We are taking some time to reflect, listen, then act- as we all should, about what truly matters in this life. We can not be silent, nor will I remain silent or inactive. Black Lives Matter. For now. We are taking time to listen. To be open, and engaging in a way that advocates for real, meaningful and lasting change. To be become a greater ally for People of Color. Marginalized Individuals must carry the weight of their identity, shaped through oppression-every single day, for better or for worse. As allies, we must come to understand that this is a weight that we, too-must be willing to carry and never put down. I personally realize-  there is much to learn and unlearn as a result. I realize that it will be work and that mistakes may be made along the way towards creating a better future. Because an ally might have more privilege-and recognizes said privilege, they are powerful voices alongside  the voices of the oppressed.I come to you today, To be a More Powerful Voice for Action and Change. “If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must do better.” Please visit the links in our show notes and stay tuned at thelightinside.us/make-change to discover more ways you can help create change for the future.
