This episode is about a scary story that isn’t scary at all. In fact, it’s an exciting story if you choose to see what it’s really about.
First, an important reminder. Tyrion Lannister, at the finale of Game of Thrones, says that people are not united by armies, gold, or flags. They are united by stories, and that there is nothing more powerful than a good story.
The people who laugh at that statement don’t get how profound it is. Tyrion is saying that all of life is a magnificent story. Civilizations are built on stories. Think of the Bible, the Koran, and the Talmud.
You will learn about three brilliant authors, all critical thinkers, who passionately articulate the message that the world we perceive with our senses is a made-up story, it’s an illusion that veils a powerful limitless reality behind it. These three people of higher consciousness are:
- Bruce Lipton, a biologist who wrote The Biology of Belief. The book scientifically explodes the idea that we are controlled by our DNA. Lipton persuasively argues that our belief about DNA as an immutable force in our lives is a story.
- Gregg Braden, a former senior computer systems designer and best selling author. His latest book is Human by Design: From Evolution by Chance to Transformation by Choice. This book shatters our paradigms about the world, reality, and ourselves. it reveals that we are bathed in a field of intelligent energy. Even more exciting, or scary, depending how you look at it, is the idea that the field responds to us and rearranges itself in the presence of our heart based feelings and beliefs.
- Lynne McTaggart, a former hard-nosed investigative journalist, a woman who got close to the dark underbelly of life. She made a life changing discovery that led to her book, The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe. Her book echoes Bruce Lipton and Gregg Braden. She writes that the human mind and body are not separate from their environment; the are part of a pulsating power that constantly interacts with the vast energy sea around them. She believes that consciousness may be central in shaping our world.
Why do I call this episode Scary Story? Because this inspiring vision shared by these three brilliant people and many others undermines the foundation of deeply rooted beliefs that make us feel safe in the world. When we muster the courage to embrace this vision we gain enormous power and great responsibility.
I encourage you to take on the challenge that can transform your life and allow you to manifest and live your dreams.

QUOTE IN THIS PODCAST
“Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” – Marianne Wiliamson
