Out with the Old - In with the New

Image for Out with the Old - In with the New

The phone call early Christmas Eve morning came as a surprise. The gentleman on the other end of the line was calling to tell me my radio show, InnerViews with Kimmie Rose and Donna Visocky was being cancelled. Our host station had decided to switch to an all music format and all talk shows were being discontinued as of January 1.

“Interesting.” Was my first thought. And then I realized, 2014 was definitely a time of new beginnings, and here we were facing the end of something familiar. “What new beginnings are in the future for us?” I wondered. Change can be difficult and we often find ourselves fighting it. Something I am doing right now as I write this on my new computer with Windows 8. (Which is also the reason why this newsletter is late – my old one died.) Why are computer companies compelled to completely change things when they upgrade? I was completely happy with my old Windows program, and I really don’t have time to figure all this new stuff out! And where did all the old icons and things go? I can’t even find the Thesaurus! Errrr!!

Yet quite often change can be good. The past couple months have given Kimmie and I a chance to really look at what we wanted to do. Do we still want to do radio? Is it important to us? And if so, what do we want our show to look like? We both knew that if we continued the show, it would be important for it to be aligned with an organization that had the same values as ours. In the end, we realized that radio was still important to us. It gave us a chance to connect with a much larger audience, an audience we enjoyed sharing with on a weekly bases. It also allowed us to interview and converse with some amazing visionaries. (And to be honest, it forced me to read their wonderful books and watch their films. Something I might have said I was too busy to do otherwise. I learned so much that I might have missed otherwise.) It took us a while to find just the right station to host our show and I think we did.

Kimmie and I are excited to announce that InnerViews Radio is now on BBS Radio every Monday from 11am – noon EST.

Here’s more information: Where intuition meets inspiration, each week InnerViews takes you on a soul-shifting inward journey to self-knowing. Be inspired by today’s top metaphysical experts, authors, and speakers in the mind, body, spirit arena, including Dannion Brinkley, Gregg Braden, Dr. Patch Adams, Neale Donald Walsch, Don Miguel Ruiz and many more.

It’s in there, that beautiful spark you were born with. You may have forgotten who you are; you may have covered that light until you barely remember it. The good news is it never extinguishes. It’s not too late… to uncover your beautiful spark, to remember what brings you passion, what lights your fire, to BE who you truly are!

Are you ready to ignite your beautiful spark and release the power within? I invite you to join Kimmie and me in provocative, lively conversation with some of the most dynamic change-makers of our time. You can listen live on www.BBSradio.com/Innerviews. And they even have a free app you can download to your phone or tablet.

Life is interesting and change is inevitable. Shifting radio networks was a good one. Not sure if I can say the same thing about my new computer, yet.

Creating a New Earth

You have been here before, a part of the circle of life on this planet earth for eons and eons. You are the players, the game changers, the creators. You have seen and experienced much, yet you still return, for there is nowhere else in the Universe such as this. Some may call it a game, and that it true. Others call it Earth School – also true. It is but one of many opportunities for a soul to grow and evolve. There are rules to this game, instructions for this school, in this particular time-space continuum, that are different from those of others. Just as earth games such as Monopoly or Trivia Pursuit have their own set of rules such is true for the Game of Life on Earth. You came here for the excitement, the thrill, the adventure and the pure joy of physicality.

You Will Survive

You will survive.... My message to anyone who has lost a loved one, especially a child. I have to admit, when someone told me that same thing after my daughter Kristi died, I didn't believe them. I did not want to live any longer on this Earth without my daughter. I wanted to leave. I didn't care about life, I wanted to be with my daughter. The thought of living another 30+ years was excruciatingly painful. Yet here I am, 12 years later and yes, I have survived. Was it a long hard road? Yes. But somewhere along the way, about a year ago, I decided I wanted to live. I remember the moment, the thought came to me loud and clear "I want to live!"

Today I am the creator of me

Each morning, as I stand in the shower, I repeat this mantra:

Today…

I choose that my thoughts, my words and my deeds reflect only my higher self and not my ego.

I remember who I am, a Divine Spark of God.

I walk in my essence of God.

These words set my intention for the day, creating an energy that helps me to balance the ups and downs and the challenges that life throws at me, keeping me on a steady course. And when I am mindful, and can maintain that energy, wow, what a difference it makes in my day and my life.

Honoring Our Daughter by Creating Change

With this issue, we want to honor our daughter Kristi who died twelve years ago in an auto accident. She was the catalyst that started us on this soul journey and brought so much light into our lives. As we look back on the past twelve years, we marvel at where we were and at where we have come to be. The journey is not yet finished, but there is more joy in our hearts and we are confidently moving forward, knowing that Kristi is guiding us and smiling down on us always.

From the very beginning we have honored Kristi’s passing by hosting the Kristi Visocky Memorial Golf Tournament, the largest golf tournament in Northern Colorado, and Kristi’s Big Night Out event. (The absolute best party of the summer!) Since its inception in 2003, with the help and support of an amazing community, the Foundation has awarded $200,000 in scholarships to 90 area young women, $100,000 to build a house for Habitat for Humanity and over $100,000 in support to area organizations.

You’re Not Here to Be Perfect

I was having one of those days. You know, the kind of day where you do something really stupid and then beat yourself up over it for several days after. Well here I was, well into day two of flogging myself – you know how it works, you start dredging up past wrongs, one after another, months and then years’ worth, and heap those on top of the current wrong you did. Pretty soon you’ve got a pile of boulders on your back and you’re walking around all hunched over and angry. Mad at yourself for being so stupid, seeing yourself as a total screw up, over and over and over.

So there I was lying awake at 4:00 a.m. wallowing in my self-pity about what a poor excuse for a person I was. What was interesting was that the stupid thing I did wasn’t even that big, it was just something I wished I could take back. I was half-awake/half asleep when I heard the voice.
