Ep. #50 Shane’s Numerology Reading w/ Rev. Dr. Craig E. Wright, Ph.D.

Rev. Dr. Craig E. Wright  is a Metaphysical Minister, Philosopher, and Numerologist. In this special episode, Rev. Dr. Craig does an in-depth reading of Shane’s numerology chart. His analysis reveals and explains Shane’s major life cycles, challenges, gifts, karmic numbers, the purpose and direction of his life, as well as how he operates physically, mentally, emotionally and intuitively. 

Think of Numerology as the science of number vibrations, with each number having it’s own vibratory influence. Based on the belief that a person comes into this life on a certain date, with a certain name, numerology uses numbers to tell who a person is, and what the map is for his or her life. Numerology can help you understand transitions and changes, learn more about the psychological conditions around you, make sense of the cycles in your life, identify challenges and use your talents and gifts to your best advantage.

It all Adds Up by Rev. Dr. Craig E. Wright

Rev. Dr. Craig E. Wright

Craig Wright is a native of Baltimore, Maryland where he studied religion and philosophy in his youth as a member of the Baltimore Ethical Society. He holds degrees in Psychology and Metaphysics. He is an Ordained Metaphysical Minister, and a Certified Metaphysical Practitioner.

It was the tragic death of a friend in the summer of 1972 that prompted Craig to search for the meaning of life. This began his study of NUMEROLOGY. After many years of personal research, Craig went public in 1988. This was the year he met Rev. Hazell Cassell and was invited to be a guest on her radio program. Craig’s presentation on Numerology generated so much excitement that people began to ask him to share his knowledge about this fascinating science. The momentum has continued to grow. Craig’s services have been sought nationally and internationally. He has served as a resource to several Human Service Agencies by conducting seminars and workshops. He has a wide array of clientele who consult with him regularly on personal as well as business matters.

Gill Tietz a sober scientist who specializes in addiction science and psychology, and is the host of the Sober Powered Podcast. In this episode, Gill and I discuss her journey of sobriety, the science of alcoholism and addiction, and how Gill now spends time studying addiction in order to help other people who are going through the same thing. For Gill, “Being Sober Powered is all about being your own champion. We hold on to our drinking with all of our strength, but eventually something happens to propel us into sobriety.  It could be something small even, but we all have our limit.  When I got sober, I was the only sober person I knew.  Each time I got through something sober, I felt stronger, and I called that strength Sober Power. I believe we can all develop our own Sober Power, and use it to change our lives.” Gill Provides people with education, inspiration, and hope in their recovery journey.

Gill Tietz

I’m Gill, and I’m the host and creator of the Sober Powered Podcast. I got sober in 2019 because alcohol caused the complete destruction of my mental health. Now, I teach what I’ve learned about why it’s so hard to stop drinking, why alcohol makes us so miserable, and how to embrace sobriety.

I spent 5 years dedicated to learning how to moderate my drinking. I researched moderation tirelessly and tried every strategy I could think of. No matter how bad things got for me, I always believed I could learn to moderate if I just had enough practice. Things continued to escalate until my drinking scared me enough to stop. I want to help you accept sobriety sooner than I did, so you don’t have to spend any more time being stuck in the drink, hate yourself, drink cycle.

Being Sober Powered is all about being your own champion

We hold on to our drinking with all of our strength, but eventually something happens to propel us into sobriety. It could be something small even, but we all have our limit. When I got sober, I was the only sober person I knew. Each time I got through something sober, I felt stronger, and I called that strength Sober Power.

I believe we can all develop our own Sober Power, and use it to change our lives.

Ep. #37 Living Well With Neurodiversity w/ Marina Livis

Marina and I discuss her journey of recently being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome (Autism Spectrum Disorder ASD) and how it has manifested in her life. We discuss how she has spent much of her career trying to help other people who have similar diagnoses understand and treat their conditions using holistic healing approaches – including hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, play therapy, nutrition, exercise, yoga, and energy work. Unlike traditional treatment approaches, Marina advocates for a more individualized, holistic approach that incorporates understanding and working with the person as a whole rather than only focusing on treating symptoms. We also address some of the issues concerning the stigma and challenges faced by neurodiverse individuals.

Ep. #14: The Creativity Process and the Opportunity for Freedom w/ Dave Stevens

Dave Stevens is a husband, father, son, novelist, songwriter-for-hire, and corporate storyteller. He has a background in journalism, project management and psychology, and is passionate about creativity as a human lifeforce. Dave is curious about most things and is currently learning the piano. He dreams that one day creativity becomes an important world currency.  In this episode, Dave and I discuss a variety of topics relating to creativity and the creative process. Creativity is traditionally thought of a characteristic trait that one either has or does not have. However, ultimately everyone has the capacity to bring creativity into their lives and to harness its power of creation. While technical skills are often correlated with creative design and artistic expression, these skills are not a necessary requirement of creativity. Moreover, to be creative does not require one to also meet a list of success criteria. To embrace creativity is to embrace life – in its multitude of manifestations. Whether in art, business, gardening, writing, or any other endeavour, it is possible to find the space and opportunity to be creative. Our creativity is only limited by our minds – by our judgements of ourselves and of others. In the end, being creative means going beyond the limits of the mind and allowing life to flow through us. We needn’t concern ourselves with what others think of our endeavours, nor with how we may judge ourselves; we need only allow ourselves the opportunity to embrace life, to feel joy, and, ultimately, to the freedom to create.

Ep. #11: A Modern Renaissance of Culture w/ Dr. Vidoll Regisford

Dr. Vidoll Regisford is a competent psychotherapy and counselling practitioner, who has worked in a variety of clinical settings, senior management and executive roles. In this episode, Vidoll and I discuss the current challenges and transformations in culture around the world. Through compassion, empathy, and the divinity of the human spirit, we strive to change the world for the better. In reviewing various historical movements and political changes, we discuss what it would mean for us as a society to move towards positive change in the world. A changing world needs leaders who move and act with wisdom and compassion. All too often, radical shifts in power end up recreating and repeating the same problems – albeit packaged in a different ideology. However, there is a way forward; a way to transcend the difficulties – and this way is through an increase in the consciousness of humanity. Every human being has a divine essence, and although this essence can be obscured and hidden away, ultimately there is hope for humanity. Good will always prevail.
