episode The Children's Book For Adults (Too) artwork
The Children's Book For Adults (Too)
Do you have the magical capacity of awareness? Today’s guest is Diva Diaz, a woman of many talents who has also recently become a children’s book author. Her first book is called Magia and the Feelings That Flew...Away, a book with a melody, one that takes you on a journey that children and adults of all ages can learn from and enjoy. Magia is a little girl who lives in a magical land where many things are the opposite of what they appear to be. The book follows Magia’s journey to school one morning as she encounters different things and takes on the same feelings as those things. But she realizes those feelings she has are not her; it’s just her awareness of the world around her. In Diva’s personal life, she works with something in Access Consciousness called X-Men, which is about how aware we truly are. Listen to learn about the difference between sensitivity and awareness, and how what we think is so wrong about us is actually our greatest strength, power, and ability. Key takeaways: * The traditional form of rhyming: a melodious journey * What’s the difference between sensitivity and awareness? * Getting back to the core of who we were before we learned to be scared, doubtful, or untrusting * There’s nothing wrong with any child, it’s about the capacity behind the behavior * A huge door is opening for children labeled with autism, ADHD, and other “disabilities” * Asking questions that empower your children * The next Magia book: what new adventures will she go on and what will she learn?

A Million Shades of Erotica [Rebroadcast]
What is erotic literature? What is it that actually draws us to it and makes it so exciting? Erotic fiction has always existed, even in ancient times, and erotica is much bigger than a sexual act. It gives us something that makes the world bigger and pushes our boundaries. Georgia Watson is an Access Consciousness facilitator, a horse person, a painter, and she also has a secret business as an online dominatrix. She is today’s expert, and together we will explore the topic of erotic novels, why we read them, and what makes them so enticing. Listen to learn more about pleasure and exploring your fantasies through erotic fiction and how the things that turn you on can be empowering, fun, and experienced without shame and completely guilt-free. Key takeaways * Erotica versus porn: what’s the difference? * Fantasies don’t have to mean anything about you * Why do women write erotic fiction? * The seduction and flirtation of build up and anticipation in erotica * What if this topic didn’t have to have a stigma attached to it?

En fantastisk app med et enormt stort udvalg af spændende podcasts. Podimo formår virkelig at lave godt indhold, der takler de lidt mere svære emner. At der så også er lydbøger oveni til en billig pris, gør at det er blevet min favorit app.
