Magic, miracles and synchronicity
Episode Summary: Make a few minutes for gratitude and appreciation today. Dr. Jane Bluestein talks with co-author Judy Lawrence about their book, Magic, Miracles, and Synchronicity, and the various dimensions of gratitude that can enrich your life. Starting with the most basic appreciation of the tangible, concrete blessings and people in our lives to being able to see the blessings in challenges and obstacles we encounter in life, they also discuss practical, specific ways to shift out of fear, stress, and negativity. Topics include beauty in the environment, an appreciation of behind-the-scenes people and intentions, intuition and guidance, the benefits of service, wishes and dreams, the joy of creation, and perspective and self-appreciation. Recorded prior to the 2012 holiday season to inspire a spirit of reflection and gratitude, this is an uplifting show for any time of the year.
