Season 2, Episode 287: Michael Calls Bullshit!

How Hollywood does us a disservice in their depiction of relationships

For today’s topical show, brace your ears (well… eyes, if you’re reading this) because Michael is calling Bullshit. That’s right. Bullshit!

A particularly fitting word as it describes falsehoods that are typically decorated to look like the truth, but you can usually smell them a mile away.

The very specific type of BS that Michael is talking about today, has to do with relationships and Hollywood – how Hollywood leans toward depicting unhealthy relationships and how we buy into it as the norm.

Season 2, Episode 261: Through the Drought

How to survive those occasional periods of deep lack in our lives

In this topical content episode, Michael talks about the “drought” – not just the one that California is going through, but the personal ones we all experience from time to time. While there may be periods in our lives where we experience a deep lack in some area, either our love-life, our finances, or even our careers, the one certainty is change.

The drought will pass. They always do. It’s more a matter of how you handle the time in between. The great boat that can carry you across the abyss is “gratitude”.

Season 2, Episode 258: Beware the Double-Burn

In this topical content episode, Michael will go deeper into the human behavior he has coined as the “Double-Burn”. It refers to those painful, often negatively perceived, events that occur in our lives that we go on to make mean something bad about ourselves or even other – thus causing more damage than the event itself.

Please share your experiences of any instance in your life when you have felt the double-burn.

Season 2, Episode 256: The Dark Side of Abundance

Do you over-compensate for your lack of abundance?

In this topical content episode, Michael looks at our propensity to run an abundance compensation routine. We frequently over do it in one aspect in our life in order to make up for our lack of abundance in another. This could work in any order (too much money – not enough love, not enough money – too much eating, etc.), but is a typical sign of something being out of balance in our lives.

Michael doesn’t set out to resolve any of these issues but to draw our attention to it as a “red flag” – a note to self, to pay attention and try to bring things back into an equilibrium, thus allowing abundance to flow evenly.

Conscious Divorce: Turning Pain Into Pleasure

Few subjects are as touchy as divorce. This became very apparent in the response to my recent article in elephant journal where I advocate a new paradigm. Conscious Divorce isn’t so messy, nor even that painful. The choice can be yours.
