Online Recovery Support – Episode 137
This week on episode 137 of Online Recovery Support Radio I thank our growing family for all the contributions from 2011 and, we do a Love experiment!
I HAVE MY NEW DESK and we are settled in our new “home” for recording the show. Please let me know if you hear anything different in terms of audio quality or catch any strange noises.
Reflections on the Winter Solstice, expectations and judgements, and more on vibrations, resonance, and the work of Dr. David Hawkins. Everything (including you) has a vibration, and we can raise our frequency of those vibrations if we want to. Tips on how and why we might want to do that so that I can live my dream.
Clearing darkness and making room for holding more Light. Being impeccable with your word before it creates chemistry in your body. Getting in tune with all you have come here to heal.
Find an answer (to our struggles) while we rise up in consciousness.
Thinking thoughts produces vibrations which in turn produces feelings, which in turn produces chemistry, or, thoughts become feelings. Displace the darkness and invite more Light into your life.
Thank you to Linda for her financial contribution and to Sean for the really kind words. Awesome!
Happy 2012 and much Love to everyone.
Happy Holidays to all of you who are celebrating at this time of year. I just returned home from a traditional Christmas celebration with some of my family but most importantly, with my tiny girl Isabelle. I bought her a new blanket to sleep on (as I told her I would,) and hung some small lights on a tree outside. I also introduced her to a very small fiber optic Christmas tree that sits atop my computer. Her first Christmas as a Cocker Spaniel with her new dad was a pretty big deal!
I am so grateful for all that has come to me in the past year. There was much change in my life in the past twelve months, some expected, some not, and many great surprises.
A few days ago, actually on the Solstice, I noticed a shift. The world all of a sudden felt different to me. I feel like 2012 is going to be an incredible year of growth for those of us brave enough to step through and into the window of opportunity.
Life continues to accelerate at a rapid pace, and as we continue to rise in consciousness we displace any darkness that once occupied space in and around our bodies. Our recovery deepens and our awareness of our true purpose becomes more clear. We will finally answer most of the questions we have struggled with during the past few years and find the Peace we have all been looking for.
My gratitude to all of you who have helped us survive. I look forward with much enthusiasm to all that 2012 brings.
My Love and gratitude to you all with my wishes for a safe, sober, and joyful Holiday season.
Messages from Matthew for December 2011, a sweet reminder……….
1.This is Matthew, with loving greetings from all souls at this station. Each year this season in your world is especially emotional, when the fortunate could look forward to exchanging gifts, decorating homes, attending religious services, perhaps traveling to celebrate with family or awaiting visitors. For them, this season has offered enjoyment and merrymaking. For the less fortunate, those who were grieving or sick, lonely, hungry or homeless, feelings of sadness and despair were amplified.
2. This year even many of the fortunate are besieged by confusion and apprehensions about their country’s unstable political and economic situations, and there are more sorrowing and desperate souls than in better times. As your year 2011 is approaching its end, we see many, many heavyhearted souls.
3. How we wish everyone could know that this time next year Earth will be on the threshold of her Golden Age—the tumultuous transitional stages of your world’s transformation will be over and all darkness vanquished! Every heart would be uplifted in anticipation of this glorious world that you already have co-created in the continuum!
4. With respect to this unusually busy time when so much is competing for your attention, our message today is brief: succinct reminders of previously offered enlightenment. Please accept our gift as it is meant, to serve you well, with confidence, assurance and excitement as you embark upon the new year.
Light, the same energy as love, is the way to peace, harmony and balance within each individual and in your world.
You absorb light by being kind, honest, compassionate, forgiving and generous, and the light of a smile has immeasurable ripple effects.
Aids to maintaining or restoring balance include meditation, soothing music, walks in Nature and the company of animals.
You have the innate wisdom and spiritual strength to successfully manage whatever you encounter and to assist all who are receptive.
Every soul has as many opportunities as needed to embrace the light and evolve spiritually.
The energy of love will reunite you and those people and animals dear to you who have moved on.
Focusing on what you want in your life and your world is the key to manifesting it.
Everything you need to know is within. Ask, be silent, and heed your soul’s guidance—conscience, intuition, instinct, inspiration, aspirations.
In every moment of your spiritual and physical journey you are assisted in myriad ways by light beings throughout this universe.
5. Our unconditional love and the infinite blessings of the universe are with you as you prepare to joyously greet Year 2012.
LOVE and PEACE
Online Recovery Support – Episode 136
Online Recovery Support’s 2011 Christmas episode starts with a huge thank you for all the support you have offered. Then, clarification about Wayne Dyer’s Conversations With God and Neale Donald Walsch’s book with the same name.
I AM NOT A VICTIM!!
Restoration Hardware gets involved with Kurt and ORS!! Release, let go, turn it over, use the steps!
Control, expectation, fear, and letting go.
“I hurt you.” Pain or opportunity to learn?
Kurt goes to the dentist as an eleven year old. Join me in an explanation of PTSD, buried trauma, and how to resolve things as a mature adult. Panic attacks, avoidance, getting drunk and going to the mall.
Again, what am I hear to heal? Repeating issue or patterns? Why?? Healing deep, old wounds or, fear of life.
This and more on episode 136 of Online Recovery Support Radio along with a huge expression of love and support to all of you. With Love and Gratitude.
A short review of a portion of the movie The Secret and the power of the collage.
A must read from our good friend Alex B………..
I have chosen to post the following for several reasons. The most important is because I think that it speaks to and for many of us in recovery from a variety of issues. My friend Alex has stepped into his life and his recovery in a passionate, comprehensive, and incredibly brave and honorable way. I told him that I wanted to honor his work and the amazing progress he has made, while at the same time respecting his privacy. Alex is the kind of person that makes my job a privilege, a joy, and an honor. His ability to process his material and work through his “stuff” to the point of resolution is the reason I get out of bed every morning with enthusiasm, and enjoy my “work” as much as I do. His writing is an expression of commitment, bravery, and intensity to his craft. I wish him well in his effort to share his work with the world, along with my respect and support for all he has done (and will do) to impress upon the recovering community the importance of integrity and authenticity.
Alex lives with what the Italians call Potenza, meaning, “power. or might.” It is with pleasure, honor, and joy, that I share the following.
From Alex B
I am afraid that people will judge me, because I am judge-mental of other people.
I am angry about my job, because I am angry about the way I am, at my job.
I am afraid to give others advice and criticism, because I am afraid of the advice and criticism others might offer me.
I am sad about the world, because I am sad about who I am in this world.
I am angry with certain people, because certain people remind me, of a part of me, that I have a hard time embracing.
I am afraid of being a leader, because I am afraid people will not follow me, since I do not follow anyone.
I am afraid of failing, because I am afraid no one will love me for being a failure, since I have not loved someone for failing.
I am afraid of being successful, because I am afraid no one will love me for being successful, since I am jealous of those who are successful around me.
I do not like anybody, because I do not like who I am.
I am jealous of certain people, because I am angry at myself for being afraid of a part of me, that certain people embrace in themselves.
I am afraid of being alone, because I am afraid of discovering who I really am.
I am afraid of being quiet, because I am afraid that my voice will not be heard.
I have a history of panic attacks and anxiety because I believe that there is something wrong with me, I feel like “everyone else gets it” except for me.
I am afraid of donating blood, of riding in planes, of getting vaccinated, of getting my hair cut and of sitting in church because I am afraid of being vulnerable, since in these instances I have no option to hide myself from other people.
I am afraid of having heart attacks, having seizures, having diabetes, having tumors, having strokes, going blind and losing my mind because I am afraid of my body, I am afraid of my mind, and I believe that I do not have any integrity.
I believe that I am weak, because there have been times when I have not taken responsibility for who I am when I needed to the most.
I am afraid that my life is not going to work out according to my expectation because I am afraid of opening my heart and mind to the possibilities that life has to offer me.
I am afraid of my life, I am afraid of who I was, of who I am and of who I will become.
I am afraid to be me.

Online Recovery Support – Episode 135
This week on ORS Radio I carry on for several minutes about how much I love you guys and how grateful I am. An announcement about the integration of the two sites, much discussion about codependency and “whats mine, and whats not.” When do I stop trying to control someone else’s behavior and look at my own issues? I need to allow others to do their work and focus on me and what I need to do. SOME THINGS ARE NOT MY JOB!!
Spiritual malpractice, interfering with someone else’s process, and knowing when to STOP!!
Examples of the loss of boundaries, honesty, manipulation and honoring the process of our loved ones. Acceptance and blessing the work of others.
Fear, how it manifests as control, and the roles we assume as children which results in a recommendation for Michael Browns book, The Presence Process.
Two other book mentions from Dr. David Hawkins, Power vs. Force and Healing and Recovery.
The manifestation of emotional issues in our human body.
The importance of making a gratitude list.
How do I know what resonates?
What feels right, IS right!!
Situational and biological depression and a talk about light panels, vitamin D3, fish oil, and exercise to treat seasonal affective disorder.
Where do you want to treat your dis ease, at the symptoms level, or at the source?
This and more, this week on ORS episode 135.
How to spot a liar? Hmmm….
News about the God particle from MSNBC
ROCKSTAR SUPERSTAR PROJECT is on a mission for the holidays!
Past and current members from such bands as Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Kiss, Heart and the Goo Goo Dolls are out to spread hope this holiday season
The ROCKSTAR SUPERSTAR PROJECT which features past and current members from such bands as Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Kiss, Heart and the Goo Goo Dolls are spreading hope this holiday season to those in residential programs across the US by giving them the gift of Rockin’ Roll apparel!
The reason for this is simple. Because a new shirt makes someone feel good!
“I can recall going to treatment almost four years ago for my addiction” says Super Star, co-founding member of the ROCKSTAR SUPERSTAR PROJECT. “I had been brought there wearing the same clothes that I had been wearing for a week. As you can imagine, this didn’t make me feel very good about myself. However, all that changed when my brother, Rock Star had offered me one of his brand new t-shirts to wear while in treatment. This gesture gave me more hope and made me feel clean, renewed, and refreshed. This was a turning point for me and now I want to pay it forward and offer hope to another person in need.”
The ROCKSTAR SUPERSTAR PROJECT, in partnership with the We Are One Foundation,a 501(c)3 is seeking businesses and/or caring individuals who would like to help us with this mission. By purchasing a Rockin’ Recovery Tour t-shirt that we will donate to treatment centers in the name of the business, individual or marked as an anonymous donor.
We believe that providing those in residential treatment with a branded recovery t-shirt would be meaningful especially at the holidays. They’d know that others were sending them hope as they embark on the awe-inspiring journey of recovery – that they ARE NOT ALONE.
If you want to help the ROCKSTAR SUPERSTAR PROJECT with this missionplease email@example.com or go to this link to place your order:http://www.rsssworldwide.com/products/8-donation-for-towards-1-shirt
