Channel 6 — July 18, 2024

Everyone has a story that they chalk up to coincidence, serendipity, or luck, but perhaps it was designed by God to get your attention. Ancient civilizations attributed unexplainable situations to the gods while in today's world we assume there is a logical explanation for the unexplainable. We have pushed God to the back of our conscience rather than seating him on the front row with science and logic. God has spoken to people in the past and continues to speak to individuals today. His creative communication channels are vast and endless and easy to recognize if you take the time to nurture and sharpen your spiritual eyes and ears. There is an invisible world all around us waiting to be noticed and an omnipotent God waiting to be heard. Are you listening?

Jaqueline H. Becker, Ph.D. speaking about “Dying to Live: Love Stories”

Is getting "unstuck" feeling hard? Well, Dying To Live: Love Stories will be a scaffold for your brave explorations of stubborn blockages. Within this memoir, which is somewhat academic, somewhat other-worldly, somewhat painful, somewhat joyous, and angry about the lack of kindness we find in our individual and collective lives, we bear witness to how Jaqueline turns her terrifying demons into valuable warrior minions. Strange as it seems, death, sexual and physical abuse, illnesses, betrayals, failure, and definitely not fitting in are Jaqueline's elixirs for real growth...and for sustaining Love. Unrelenting fights for her resurrections reinforce your commitment to do the same---live richly, deeply and stay true to your own soul. Spirit seems to talk directly to us through these love stories, and Spirit is so revered because it is Spirit which leads us through our darkest of days and toward more and more light. Dr. Becker shows us how to use all our senses to hear Spirit talk directly to us as she raises the positive value of suffering to its highest level.
