    add

    Following your dreams doesn’t come without risks. Like most dream chasers, when Caroline Page decided to go after her dreams, she faced a lot of uncertainty about the future. But she knew it was worth the risk. In her chat with Aimee J., Caroline shares the process of dream-chasing and how - in the end - she found her way to happiness. After spending many years in theater and believing this was the life for her, Caroline faced the reality that entertainment simply wasn’t the lifestyle she wanted. So she set out to chase her dreams and follow the passion she knew in her heart was her purpose.

    The decision to follow your dreams is the most important one you’ll ever make.

    Caroline first faced her life’s passion in high school during a mock trial. It was then that she found the path that would eventually lead her to happiness. Getting there, however, would mean she had to take some risks, face some fears, and fight to find her way. After deciding to pursue entertainment law, she found her way to sports law and discovered her true calling. Her desire to distance herself from the entertainment industry encouraged Caroline to search for a better legal speciality to secure a happier future. Once she found sports law, Caroline knew this was where she belonged.

    How did Caroline end up in New York City?

    After attending law school in California, most of Caroline’s friends assumed she was planning to take the California state bar exam and practice law there. But Caroline had other plans. LA wasn’t the life for her, so she decided to make her home in New York. After passing the New York state bar, Caroline made a life in New York City with no friends, no job, and not a lot of money. It was worth the risk though, because she knew this would lead her to the life she dreamed of. After doing acting jobs to get by, she was able to land a legal assistant job at CAA Sports, which paved the way for a bright future in sports law.

    Why it’s important to keep searching for your dream job.

    Even though Caroline liked her job at CAA Sports, she knew there weren’t enough challenges for her. She was ready to practice law as an attorney and leave legal assistant status behind. After a colleague recommended she apply for an opening at NFL Players Association, Caroline was able to secure the job of her dreams. She relocated to Washington, DC and now reaps the fruits of her labor in chasing her dreams all these years. Caroline shares the importance of following your dreams, no matter what, and how taking risks can truly create a life without regret.

    Caroline’s belief that anyone can live a life without regret.

    Caroline shares her story of risk-taking and following the road less travelled in order to chase her dreams. Even though she faced a lot of uncertainty about the future, she always knew she had to fight to get what she wanted out of life. Caroline shares her favorite movie quote, which is the perfect way to sum up her approach to life. Her inspiring story of perseverance will surely give hope to dream chasers everywhere. Caroline is now living the life of her dreams. She travels, has a career she is passionate about, and is happy. That’s what dream chasing is all about.

    MV Mi AmigoMi Amigo (Spanish: My Friend) was originally a three-masted cargo schooner, that later gained international recognition as an offshore radio station.She was built as the schooner Margarethe for German owners. A sale in 1927 saw her renamed Olga and she was lengthened in 1936. During the Second World War, she was requisitioned by the Kriegsmarine and served as an auxiliary ship between 1941 and 1943. In 1953, the ship was again lengthened to 133 feet 9 inches (40.77 m). In 1959, she was sold for conversion to a floating radio station and was renamed Bon Jour. Subsequently, she was renamed Magda Maria in 1961 and Mi Amigo in 1962. She served, intermittently, as a radio ship, until 1980, when she sank in a gale.
    History
    MargaretheThe ship was built as a three-masted schooner SS Margarethe by Deutsche Werke Kiel in 1921, for Ernst Simon A.G. As constructed she was 96 feet 8 inches (29.46 m) long, with a beam of 23 feet 1 inch (7.04 m) and a depth of 9 feet 5 inches (2.87 m). The overall weight being 129 tons at this time.Simon sailed the boat around various Baltic ports carrying general cargo.She was sold to Heinrich Koppelmann in 1927.
    OlgaKoppelmann renamed her Olga after his wife.In 1928, she was strengthened and a four-cylinder engine installed. The weight increased to 159 GRT, 97 NRT. One of her wooden masts was replaced by a steel mast. Olga had Hamburg as her port of registry. She was allocated the Code Letters RBGF.In 1936, Olga was lengthened and a new Klockner-Humboldt diesel engine fitted (six cylinders of 8 11⁄16 inches (22 cm) diameter by 14 3⁄16 inches (36 cm) stroke) (82.1L or 5,011 cubic inches), and the length of the boat was increased to 111 feet 3 inches (33.91 m), by adding a new centre section On 5 June 1941, Olga was requisitioned by the Kriegsmarine. She served as an auxiliary ship based at Putlos.On 18 November 1943, Olga was decommissioned and then refitted before being returned to her owner. She appears to have been de-rigged at this time, as shown by contemporary photographs. As Heinrich Koppelmann had died, ownership passed to his widow. In 1951, Olga was again lengthened.She was sold in 1959, her new owners planned to convert her into a floating radio station. The work was carried out by Norderwerft (de), Hamburg, Olga arrived at Norderwerft's shipyard on 31 May 1960. Her 9,570 cubic feet (271 m3) cargo hold was converted into studios. It was originally planned to install two 125 feet (38 m) high radio masts, but only one was installed. The ship was renamed Bon Jour about this time and she was reflagged to Nicaragua.
    Bon JourOn 10 August 1960, Norderwerft received a letter informing them that it was illegal to install, repair or operate a radio station without Government permission, under a law passed in 1930. Bon Jour was then sailed to Langelinie, Denmark where the mast was installed as were two 10 kW transmitters which were manufactured by Continental Electronics, Dallas, Texas. The transmitters were flown in from the United States as components and assembled in Copenhagen.On 20 December 1960, Bon Jour departed Copenhagen bound for Stockholm, Sweden. During the voyage, some of the mast stays worked loose and the ship was anchored off Gotska Sandön whilst the mast was made secure. On 23 December, Bon Jour ran into a storm. The fishing vessel Danette located her the next day and on 25 December the crew abandoned Bon Jour as they feared the mast would collapse. They were taken to Sandhamn by pilot boat. On 26 December, the salvage tug Neptune took the crew back to Bon Jour. The next day, Neptune towed Bon Jour to Sandhamn. It was suggested that the ship should be taken to Lidingö for repairs, but on arrival there it was discovered that the shipyard had closed six months previously. Repairs were carried out by the Crichton-Vulcan shipyard, Turku, Finland. The work had to be done offshore as the Finnish Government applied pressure on Crichton-Vulcan not to fulfil the job.Repairs were completed on 4 February 1961 and the ship sailed for Ornö, Sweden, where she arrived on 6 February. That day, a storm blew up, and a loud crack was heard from the mast. Repairs to the insulators were made the next day at the Finnboda shipyard. On 21 February, Bon Jour sailed for her anchorage and began broadcasting as Radio Nord. She was forced to return to Finnboda for further repair work after a few days. Bon Jour returned to her anchorage on 1 March, but the following day the Swedish Government passed a law enabling the confiscation of broadcasting equipment from any ship operating in Swedish waters. They also applied pressure on the Nicaraguan Government to withdraw the ships' registration. On 8 March 1961, Bon Jour started broadcasting as Radio Nord from 58°48′05″N 18°24′05″E, in international waters off Stockholm. The programmes on Radio Nord were mostly pre-recorded. As well as supply by tender from Nynäshamn, programme tapes and other material were got to the ship packing them in a canister which was dropped astern of Bon Jour by a light aircraft. Only one canister failed to reach the ship.
    Magda MariaBon Jour was reflagged to Panama and renamed Magda Maria. On 6 December 1961, the ship was caught in a severe storm and almost foundered. The next day, she put into Sandhamn for repairs which included a broken mast stay. Her broadcasting equipment was not confiscated as it was recognised that putting into port was an emergency situation. On 8 March, Bon Jour returned to her anchorage. Radio Nord ceased broadcasting on 30 June 1962. On 4 July 1962, Magda Maria sailed for Ferrol, Spain where she was to undergo a refit, arriving on 2 August. Radio Nord was closed by the Swedish authorities and the ship was put up for sale. A law had been passed prohibiting Swedes from supplying offshore radio ships with stores, or from providing advertising services to the stations. This law was said to have been brought in to discourage Soviet propaganda ships from being based off the Swedish coast. A similar law was passed simultaneously by Denmark; both came into effect on 1 August 1962. Danish station Radio Mercur closed on July 31; having closed one month earlier, Radio Nord has the distinction of being the first offshore pirate to be closed as a result of government legislation.
    Mi Amigo1962-1968Magda Maria was yet again renamed to Mi Amigo. She departed Ferrol on 14 September 1962 bound for the Thames Estuary, where she made some test broadcasts as Radio LN on 306 metres. Mi Amigo sailed to Oostende, Belgium, then to Vlissingen, Netherlands where she arrived on 11 January 1963. She departed Vlissingen on 15 January and was next reported as putting into Brest, France on 19 January for repairs to her steering gear. On 26 January, Mi Amigo departed Brest for Galveston, Texas where her American owners intended to convert her to a luxury yacht. She arrived on 4 March. It is reported that Mi Amigo broadcast for a short time whilst anchored off Galveston. Her studios were gutted and she was stripped of her broadcasting equipment in preparation for conversion to a yacht.A proposed purchase by Project Atlanta Ltd, headed by Allan Crawford was stalled due to the closure of Radio Mercur, with financial backers reluctant to invest. It took until December 1963 before Crawford could raise the necessary finance. Mi Amigo departed Galveston on 28 December bound for Las Palmas, Spain where she arrived on 30 January 1964. On 5 February, she docked at Ferrol for repairs to be undertaken, including work aimed at improving her stability. Mi Amigo departed Ferrol on 15 February, bound for Corunna, where she arrived on 28 February. She departed Corunna on 3 March, bound for Greenore, Ireland where a 141 feet (43 m) new radio mast was to be fitted. Late delivery of the mast meant that she did not depart Greenore for the Thames Estuary until 28 March.On 21 April 1964, the ship was caught in a gale off Land's End and the mast was damaged. The ship was anchored off Falmouth whilst repairs were carried out by riggers from Portsmouth. Mi Amigo arrived off Frinton-on-Sea on 27 April and began broadcasting as Radio Atlanta. These broadcasts led to complaints from the General Post Office that communications were being affected. As a result, Panama withdrew the ship's registration on 7 May. On 2 July, Radio Atlanta merged with Radio Caroline, with Mi Amigo broadcasting as Radio Caroline South. A new anchorage in the Thames Estuary was tried for a few days from 2 November but was unsuitable as it was too rough. Mi Amigo returned to her former position off Frinton.On 20 January 1966, a Force 8 gale blew up and Mi Amigo's anchors broke and the ship started to drift. This went unnoticed by the crew, who were watching a programme about the singer-songwriter Donovan, broadcasting having ended. The final song played that night had been Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire. Dave Lee Travis went aloft to adjust the TV aerial and noticed that the ship was close to shore. He was also unable to see the Radio London ship Galaxy. Walton-on-the-Naze Coastguards were unable to raise the crew, and the tender Offshore One was sent to her aid. One of the methods of alerting the crew tried was an item on the television news. This was missed by the crew as they had turned the television off as they had lost the signal due to the ship moving from its normal position. Mi Amigo was driven ashore at Frinton-on-Sea, Essex and the crew were rescued by Breeches buoy.The crew, who included DJs Tony Blackburn, Tom Lodge and Graham Webb were taken to Walton-on-the-Naze police station where they were informed that they were classed as "shipwrecked and distressed mariners" and were entitled to free replacement clothing. A shopkeeper was persuaded to open up early so that the crew could be clothed, and accommodation was arranged in a hotel for the crew.Attempts by the tug Titan to refloat her were unsuccessful. On 21 January, the captain of Mi Amigo managed to refloat her by kedging. The hull was inspected before Mi Amigo departed for Zaandam, Netherlands with Titan in attendance. Repairs were carried out by the Zaanlandse Scheepsbouw Maatschappij. During this period, Radio Caroline South was broadcast from Cheeta 2, which was available for sale as Radio Syd had been closed down by the Swedish authorities. Repairs were completed on 5 April and Mi Amigo resumed broadcasting on 16 April. The next day, Radio Caroline was off the air as there had been a short circuit in the aerial. There was a gale at the time which prevented the tender from bringing engineers to Mi Amigo. The bored DJs, including Tony Blackburn, Tony Prince and Norman St. John managed to fix the fault themselves and the station was soon back on air. Cheeta II served as a relay station between 27 April and 1 May 1966.On 15 August 1967, the Marine, &c., Broadcasting (Offences) Act 1967 became law, . The four DJs on board Mi Amigo at that time were Ross Brown, Robbie Dale, Spangles Muldoon and Johnnie Walker. On 3 March 1968, Titan pulled alongside Mi Amigo and Radio Caroline was ordered to close down. The crew were locked in the ship's lounge. The Offshore Supply Company seized Mi Amigo and Fredericia as security for £30,000 they were owed. Both ships were towed to Amsterdam. It was planned to use the Oceaan VII as a replacement for Mi Amigo, but the story was leaked by newspapers and the ship's owners were told that they would be summoned if the ship was used to broadcast pirate radio.
    1972-1986On 29 May 1972, Mi Amigo was sold at auction for ƒ20,000 to the Hofman Shipping Company, who had bought her on behalf of Rob Vermaat and Gerard van Dam. Although it was assumed that Mi Amigo would be scrapped, the Dutch Free Radio Organisation announced that she was to become a Free Radio Museum. The studios and cabins were restored and Mi Amigo departed Amsterdam on 2 September apparently bound for England. The next day, she anchored off Scheveningen. During October and November, test transmissions were made which consisted only of playing music and no station identification was given. On 9 November, Spangles Muldoon spoke live on air.A force 11 storm on 13 November resulted in Mi Amigo losing her anchor and the mast collapsing. A makeshift aerial was erected on 30 November. Broadcasting began on 1 December, still without the DJs giving their name or using a station name. On 17 December, the name Radio 199 was used. From 22 December, the name Radio Caroline was used. On 28 December, some of the DJs refused to work any more as they had not been paid. The next day, HNLMS Limburg came alongside Mi Amigo accompanied by the tender Zeemeeuw, which the striking DJs boarded. The dispute was settled and Radio Caroline resumed broadcasting.On 30 December, Mi Amigo was towed to IJmuiden by the tender Euro Trip. Permission to enter port was initially refused as Mi Amigo had no papers. Assurances were given that port fees would be paid, and Mi Amigo was allowed to dock in Amsterdam. Officers from the Dutch Radio Controle Dienst boarded the ship, but her transmitting equipment was not confiscated as it was incomplete. Member of the Scheepvaartinspectie declared that the MV Mi Amigo was unseaworthy and ordered repairs to be made. At court in Haarlem, an injunction was granted to the captain of Mi Amigo and the ship was impounded. On 1 January 1973, two tugs towed Mi Amigo to IJmuiden where the Scheepvaarinspectie ordered that a leak in the engine room was repaired, giving the crew just two hours to complete the task. Early the next day, outstanding monies were paid, and Mi Amigo was allowed to sail.On 18 January 1973, a mayday was broadcast by Mi Amigo at 23:50 because of a fire in the engine room. The fire was extinguished within ten minutes. On 2 April, Radio Veronica's ship Norderney ran aground off Scheveningen, Netherlands during a Force 12 gale. Mi Amigo then broadcast for Radio Veronica as well as for Caroline, with two new studios being built for the purpose. The money earned from this paid for a new radio mast. Between July and October, Radio Atlantis bought airtime on the ship to broadcast pre-recorded daytime programmes.
    On 1 October, the new mast collapsed. A makeshift aerial was erected and the ship resumed transmission on 4 October but ceased transmission on 18 October when the mast failed. A new 165 feet (50 m) high mast was completed by 24 December. On December 28, Radio Mi Amigo was first broadcast from Mi Amigo, replacing Radio Atlantis which had acquired its own ship, the MV Jeanine. Radio Mi Amigo formally opened on 1 January 1974. From 7 January, Radio Seagull was broadcast, the name changing to Radio Caroline on 23 February.On 29 August 1974, Mi Amigo was towed to across the North Sea by the MV Dolfijn. She was anchored near the Kentish Knock Lightship, some 18 nautical miles (33 km) off the Essex coast on 30 August. This move was timed to coincide with the passage of the Dutch Marine Offences Act on September 1, 1974.At 16:30 on 8 November 1975, Mi Amigo's anchor chain broke and the ship began to drift, running aground on the Longsand Head Sands. She was refloated at 19:55 but continued to drift and entered United Kingdom territorial waters at 22:03. The Coastguard was flooded with calls from listeners to Radio Caroline. The engine on Mi Amigo failed about this time. On 9 November, the ship was anchored near to the South Edinburgh Number 2 buoy. Her position was confirmed by the lighthouse tender Mermaid but she was declared to be a danger to shipping at that position. On 13 November, Mi Amigo was towed to the South Edinburgh Number 3 buoy, from where she recommenced broadcasting. The following day, Mi Amigo was boarded by police and Home Office officials who ordered that broadcasting be stopped. On 17 November, coastguards at North Foreland were contacted and told that the ship had lost her main anchor. The Margate Lifeboat was sent to her aid and took off two crew. Mi Amigo's captain was told that no tug was available to assist her. He refused an offer to return to shore. The two crew members were landed at Ramsgate as conditions were too rough to land them at Margate. On 23 November, Mi Amigo was anchored at 51°39′42″N 1°31′52″E, some 17 nautical miles (31 km) off Margate.[1]On 10 September 1976, one studio was put out of action when a porthole was broken by a wave, flooding the studio. At 20:30 the anchor chain broke in a Force 9 storm. Lifeboats and search and rescue helicopters based at RAF Manston were placed on standby. 02:30 on 11 September, Mi Amigo ran aground on a sandbank and was holed in two places. Broadcasting ceased as the ship was 6 feet (1.83 m) deep in water in places. The Dutch crew members were taken off the ship and landed at Oostende. Whilst there, they searched an impounded oil tanker and found an anchor and chain, which they appropriated for use on Mi Amigo. The ship was towed clear of the sandbank on 16 September.In the spring of 1977, two Dutch DJs of Radio Mi Amigo went on strike protesting the bad and dangerous condition the ship was in, and ridiculed by the staff ashore in Spain, left the ship. Although nothing had been done to improve the ship's safety and seaworthiness, both DJs returned to the ship in October 1977, resuming their shows. During the winter of 1977/1978 due to the project running out of financial assets the crew didn't get any cargo aboard for three weeks, no food and water nor any technical spare parts and fuel.On 20 October 1978 the generator failed, a regular event, but this time couldn't be restarted. The pumps failed and seawater caused the ship to capsize heavily. The crew including the captain left the ship by lifeboat. A few weeks later radio and self-taught board technician Peter Chicago returned by rubber boat attempting to repair the ship's machinery, getting the ship afloat and getting the generator and radio equipment working again, in which he achieved. Although most of the crew and the captain returned most of the DJs didn't. Sylvain Tack, the Flemish businessman behind Radio Mi Amigo International, had lost interest in his project and had put the ship (of which he operated Radio Mi Amigo, but of which he lacked any ownership), the radio equipment and the project's assets in Spain on sale. The ship was regarded as an unseaworthy wreck and in fact, wasn't on sale at all, alike the radio equipment, hence Ronan O'Rahilly decided to show up again as the station's operations manager and went looking for new investors to a renewed offshore radio project Caroline. An offer by Gerard van Dam to run a renewed Radio Delmare (which had lost her ship MV Aegir in September 1978) from aboard the MV Mi Amigo was turned down as plans were to broadcast 24 hours a day, which would disable any Radio Caroline broadcasts. However, Van Dam offered spare parts from the scrapped MV Aegir, including a badly needed second generator and radio transmitter spare parts.On 18 January 1979, Mi Amigo sprang a leak. A mayday was issued on 19 January which was received by the Thames Coastguard. Three vessels went to the aid of Mi Amigo, the May Crest, Sand Serin and Cambrai. The ship was abandoned, but later boarded and salvaged.While the newly attracted Radio Mi Amigo project investors leased the MV Magdalena ship anchored in January 1979 at the Dutch coast, without new investors O'Rahilly decided that Radio Caroline should return with a new format, broadcasting the usual AOR format at night while at daytime aiming a Dutch language family radio/Top 40 format aiming at the Netherlands and Flanders, like Radio Mi Amigo did before. On 15 April 1979, the bi-lingually organized 24 hours-a-day broadcasts resumed. The Dutch service had assembled a completely new team of DJs, which became known as the Golden Team. After their Mi Amigo employment, their radio innovations reshaped the Dutch media landscape.On 19 March 1980, Mi Amigo's anchor chain broke in a Force 10 storm. She drifted for 10 nautical miles (19 km) before running aground on the Longsands Bank. At 23:58, the final broadcast was made by DJs Stevie Gordon and Tom Anderson. The Sheerness Lifeboat attended Mi Amigo and took off the crew. The ship sank on 20 March at 51°35′00″N 1°17′20″E leaving only the 127 feet (39 m) tall mast above the water. On 22 May, Thanet District Council announced plans to refloat Mi Amigo and turn her into a museum ship at Ramsgate, but the ship remained as a wreck. The mast collapsed at the end of July 1986, a fact which was reported by Trinity House on 2 August. It was announced on 13 September that the position of the wreck of Mi Amigo was to be marked by a buoy.[1] Mi Amigo lies in 8 to 16 feet (2.4 to 4.9 m) of water.

    Broadcasting historyThe following radio stations were broadcast from the ship. Short periods of interruption due to technical problems and strandings are disregarded, not however those due to being entered and towed, and docking.

    Fit 2 Love: Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Fitness for the Happy Life You Deserve starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Caroline Myss is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition. Caroline established her own educational institute in 2003, CMED (Caroline Myss Education), which offers a diverse array of programs devoted to personal development and draws students from all over the world. In addition to hosting a weekly radio show on the Hay House network, Caroline maintains a rigorous international workshop and lecture schedule.

    After completing her Master’s degree, Caroline co-founded Stillpoint Publishing and headed the editorial department, producing an average of ten books a year in the field of human consciousness and holistic health. Simultaneously Caroline refined her skills as a medical intuitive, with the assistance of C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon.

    Caroline developed the field of Energy Anatomy, a science that correlates specific emotional/psychological/physical/spiritual stress patterns with diseases. Her research proved so accurate that it became the subject matter of a book co-written by Caroline and Norm: THE CREATION OF HEALTH.

    In 1996, Caroline released ANATOMY OF THE SPIRIT, a New York Times bestseller that has been published in 28 languages and has sold over 1.5 million copies. Through the investigation of the underlying reasons why people sabotage their healing processes, Caroline identified a syndrome she calls “woundology,” characterized by a person’s reliance on the power of illness for manipulation of his or her world, as opposed to attaining an independent, empowered state of health. As with her other seminal research, this syndrome is now a recognized psychological condition. Her third book, WHY PEOPLE DON’T HEAL AND HOW THEY CAN, became another New York Times bestseller.

    Caroline then pursued her interest in the language of symbols, myths, and archetypes, conducting research that enabled her to profile an individual’s “Sacred Contract,” a complex of 12 archetypal patterns that reflect in mythic language the agreements the soul made prior to birth. Based on this work, Caroline released SACRED CONTRACTS, which became her third New York Times bestseller. It is published in 18 languages and posts sales of well over 1.6 million copies. In 2003, Oprah Winfrey gave Caroline her own television program with the OXYGEN network in New York City, which ran successfully for one year.

    Caroline followed with two more New York Times bestsellers, INVISIBLE ACTS OF POWER in 2004 and ENTERING THE CASTLE in 2007. Caroline’s latest book, DEFY GRAVITY, was released in October 2009, a book exploring the mystical phenomenon of healing that transcends reason.

    In addition to her written work, Caroline has produced more than eighty audio/visual products on subjects that include healing, spirituality, personal development, and the study of archetypes.

    Ep. 54: Sacred Contracts- When Relationships Change

    Women, Men & Relationships starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Caroline Myss is a five-time New York Times bestselling author and internationally renowned speaker in the fields of human consciousness, spirituality and mysticism, health, energy medicine, and the science of medical intuition. Caroline established her own educational institute in 2003, CMED (Caroline Myss Education), which offers a diverse array of programs devoted to personal development and draws students from all over the world. In addition to hosting a weekly radio show on the Hay House network, Caroline maintains a rigorous international workshop and lecture schedule.

    After completing her Master’s degree, Caroline co-founded Stillpoint Publishing and headed the editorial department, producing an average of ten books a year in the field of human consciousness and holistic health. Simultaneously Caroline refined her skills as a medical intuitive, with the assistance of C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon.

    Caroline developed the field of Energy Anatomy, a science that correlates specific emotional/psychological/physical/spiritual stress patterns with diseases. Her research proved so accurate that it became the subject matter of a book co-written by Caroline and Norm: THE CREATION OF HEALTH.

    In 1996, Caroline released ANATOMY OF THE SPIRIT, a New York Times bestseller that has been published in 28 languages and has sold over 1.5 million copies. Through the investigation of the underlying reasons why people sabotage their healing processes, Caroline identified a syndrome she calls “woundology,” characterized by a person’s reliance on the power of illness for manipulation of his or her world, as opposed to attaining an independent, empowered state of health. As with her other seminal research, this syndrome is now a recognized psychological condition. Her third book, WHY PEOPLE DON’T HEAL AND HOW THEY CAN, became another New York Times bestseller.

    Caroline then pursued her interest in the language of symbols, myths, and archetypes, conducting research that enabled her to profile an individual’s “Sacred Contract,” a complex of 12 archetypal patterns that reflect in mythic language the agreements the soul made prior to birth. Based on this work, Caroline released SACRED CONTRACTS, which became her third New York Times bestseller. It is published in 18 languages and posts sales of well over 1.6 million copies. In 2003, Oprah Winfrey gave Caroline her own television program with the OXYGEN network in New York City, which ran successfully for one year.

    Caroline followed with two more New York Times bestsellers, INVISIBLE ACTS OF POWER in 2004 and ENTERING THE CASTLE in 2007. Caroline’s latest book, DEFY GRAVITY, was released in October 2009, a book exploring the mystical phenomenon of healing that transcends reason.

    In addition to her written work, Caroline has produced more than eighty audio/visual products on subjects that include healing, spirituality, personal development, and the study of archetypes.

    JJ Flizanes is an Empowerment Strategist and the host of several podcast shows including Fit 2 Love and Spirit, Purpose & Energy. She is the Director of Invisible Fitness, an Amazon best-selling author of Fit 2 Love: How to Get Physically, Emotionally, and Spiritually Fit to Attract the Love of Your Life, and author of Knack Absolute Abs: Routines for a Fit and Firm Core. She was named Best Personal Trainer in Los Angeles for 2007 by Elite Traveler Magazine.

    the lively show: how to create a capsule wardrobe with caroline rector (unfancy)

    The Lively Show starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Today's Lively Show episode is the perfect blend of deep introspection, inspiration, practical how-to, and fun!

    I'm talking with Caroline Rector of the minimalist fashion blog, Unfancy.

    Caroline's blog focuses on creating a "capsule wardrobe," which - for her - means wearing the same 37 pieces (including shoes!) for three months at a time.

    I knew I had to have her on the show to share the journey that brought her to the concept... and share her insights for those of us who would like to attempt a similar experiment in our own wardrobes.

    This show is perfect for anyone interested in trying a creative wardrobe framework, simplifying, discovering their true style, or tackling difficult shopping issues.

     



     




     

     
    IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT
     

    The two big limiting beliefs that Caroline had to overcome in her life which eventually brought her to style and fashion blogging.


    How Caroline reexamined her negative thought patterns and mainstream media messages in order to change the way she looked at herself and reality. (Heads up: we talk about breasts.)


    The four month long soul journey that Caroline went on between ending her previous career and starting her new one as a minimalist fashion blogger.


    Where the concept of capsule collections comes from, and the blogs that helped introduce Caroline to the concept initially.


    Why Caroline has settled on the number 37 for her capsule collections.


    How Caroline approaches setting the number of pieces in a capsule collection and her suggestions for others thinking to do something similar.


    Caroline's approach to shopping when she's creating a capsule.


    The step-by-step guide to starting your own capsule collection experiment.


    The revelations that Caroline experienced from not clothes shopping for long periods of time.


    How this shift in shopping and style has impacted the rest of Caroline's life.


    Caroline's recommendations for those who have full-time jobs or two separate roles that require completely different types of clothing.



    What Caroline would tell someone just starting out on this journey.

    “E.T. Contact: They Are Here” with Caroline Cory

    Outer Limits Of Inner Truth starstarstarstarstar
    add

    Caroline Cory returns to the Outer Limits of Inner Truth to discuss her film E.T. Contact: They Are Here The scientific approach has never been done before in ET/UFO context. Expert Caroline Cory takes viewers on an extraordinary journey to uncover whether these seemingly independent yet parallel reports may actually be scientific evidence of a greater phenomenon at work. Through a series of groundbreaking on camera experiments on human DNA, irrefutable science, interviews with leading experts from Harvard and Stanford, and jaw-dropping stories of individuals from around the world who share similar accounts of extraterrestrial and otherworldly encounters, viewers will find themselves pondering the nature of their own reality and the true origin of the human species. In Caroline’s film “E.T. Contact: They are Here” during her interview with Jimmy Church, Caroline talked about the scientific experiments that took place during the making of the film, and the astounding results. They did these tests over and over to make sure it was not a fluke and that the same results were occurring. Caroline explained, “Normally people would think that the best way to prove that there are aliens in human form or aliens among us, would be to test DNA samples and see what differences you can find in the DNA. However DNA is so complicated beyond belief! We had to get very creative to bring scientific validation from a very different perspective all together. We were able to prove that when human DNA comes into contact with alien, or non-human intelligence, the DNA does change! This is a revolutionary scientific discovery, and it has never been done before!” As you can imagine, even the scientists themselves were blown away by these discoveries. In the interview Caroline spoke about something that amazed her during the conversations she had off-camera with some of the scientists, “I was so amazed to hear these famous, brilliant and knowledgeable scientists using terms such as, ‘Cosmic Intelligence’, ‘Cosmic Mind’, and that ‘the Universe is a Conscious Creation’, it was so refreshing to hear that!” Caroline started to have experiences of being in contact with many types of intelligence since the age of 5, and she understood that world at a very young age. She could see the subtle energies, see the Beings, see Consciousness, and see the structure of Space. Caroline understood reality on a completely different level. It was like leading a double life, but as she grew up Caroline knew that this other reality was real, and the more she focused on it, the more validation she got! The path Caroline ended up choosing was one that would give her strong spiritual fulfillment, and now she has created this perfect combination of multi-media entertainment and universal consciousness work. So as Caroline set up these experiments, she knew that there was going to be some kind of result. These inter-dimensional worlds were obviously not new to her at all. However, she was open to be pleasantly surprised and was to discover exactly what the results would be and to what extent. Now Caroline already knew that non-human contact effects the body and changes the DNA and vice versa, meaning that the entity present can be effected as well. Caroline told Jimmy about some of the amazing results of experiments they did that will not be revealed in the film. WEBSITE LINK: http://www.godsamongus.com
