Melchizedek shares many keys to enlightenment! From how to get answers from your inner guidance, to money, to loss and grief, to the issues of what “meant to be” means, or not feeling like we “fit in” with this world. An actual recording from a Defragmenting session in Cindy's office. Profound words and powerful energy! Melchizedek (Hebrew: "king of righteousness") is mentioned in the book of Genesis, and the first individual to be named "priest." He was both priest and king of Salem. Psalms 110 names Melchizedek as representative of the priestly line through which a future king of Israel's Davidic line was ordained (Jesus, as mentioned in Hebrews 5 - 8): the Order of Melchizedek. Now an Ascended Master, Cindy has been channeling Melchizedek for more than a decade.
Episode 162 Notes and Links to Erin Keane's Work On Episode 162 of The Chills at Will Podcast, Pete welcomes Erin Keane, and the two discuss, among other things, her early voracious reading, her work as writer and editor and Editor-in-Chief, and ideas from her memoir of life imitating art, art versus artist, patterns of misogyny and burdens laid upon women and girls, a “runway” versus a “missing girl,” and other salient issues and themes that come from her mother and family's stories. Erin Keane was born in New Jersey and raised in Kentucky and feels both states are misunderstood. RUNAWAY: Notes on the Myths that Made Me, her debut full-length nonfiction book, is a memoir in essays about her parents/pop culture/gender. She's also the author of three collections of poetry: Demolition of the Promised Land (Typecast Publishing, 2014 — out of print), Death-Defying Acts (WordFarm, 2010), and The Gravity Soundtrack, (WordFarm, 2007). She's Editor in Chief At Salon, she writes mostly about culture and drinks, including the cocktails-and-mindfulness column The Oracle Pour, in which she dresses her writing about life up in drink recipe clothes. She's a public radio alum and daily newspaper-trained, and she cut her teeth in the beautiful wild world of the alt-weekly. Erin is a member of the graduate faculty of Spalding University's Sena Naslund-Karen Mann School of Writing, where she teaches creative nonfiction, poetry, and professional writing.

Earthing Brings Up Some Really Profound Biological Questions Clinton Ober• http://www.UltimateLongevity.com • Book – Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? #ClintonOber #Grounding #GoundingMovement Clinton Ober is the innovator behind the Grounding Movement and author of Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever? This book introduces readers to the landmark discovery that living in contact with the Earth's natural surface charge - being grounded - naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body. This effect has massive health implications because of the well-established link between chronic inflammation and all chronic diseases, including the diseases of aging and the aging process itself. Clinton, First learned about grounding when installing Cable TV systems in Billings, Montana in the early 1960s. A decade later, he formed Telecrafter Corporation that specialized in proper grounding of cable installations for safety and TV signal stability. In the 1980s, he turned his attention to the developing computer industry and partnered with McGraw-Hill to distribute live digital news services. This Led to the development cable modems with the proper system grounding. From his years expertise in the grounding of hardware technology, he developed the working hypothesis on how: Grounding the human body to the Earth could normalize the functioning of all of the body's systems. The idea about how the body utilizes the earth's electrical potential and free electrons to maintain its internal electrical stability, normalizing all of its self-regulating and self-healing systems.Over the past twenty years has worked extensively on health benefits of grounding the human body, which have shown impressive improvements in…inflammation, sleep, pain & stiffness, circulation, blood pressure, cortisol, stress, depression, anxiety, tiredness, fatigue, energy, mood, blood glucose, blood viscosity, immunity, thyroid function, metabolism, wound healing, HRV, vagal tone, serum electrolytes, athletic performance & recovery, and more. Grounding has now become a massive international movement — causing people to shed their shoes and reconnect electrically to the surface of the Earth.

Fear. How do we deal with it? Where does it stem from? How do we face it? And when does enough become enough? We all have insecurities. We all have doubts. And then there are those amongst us who walk with such empowerment and confidence. Do they not experience fear? And if they do, how do they transcend their fears? Jeffrey gets raw, up close and personal in this solo episode where he talks about his experience with fear and the light most recently brought to the surface in overcoming this paralyzing fear. Profound and heartwarming, these are lessons that which all of us can relate at some point in our lives.
Traumatic events happen to the best of us. Some are more ordinary than others, like car accidents or losing a job, and others are bigger. Whether big T or little t, traumas are crisis' that happen to all of us, it's not some rare thing. Resilience is about using the crisis or the suffering to grow and launch yourself into a whole new beginning. Beyond just recovering from setbacks, resilience helps us navigate all life challenges, and end up the better for them. Resilience is a mindset that enables us to seek out new experiences and view life as a work in progress. Here's a simple framework to think about the work that goes into building resilience: Pain + reflection = progress. Pain is going to happen. But pain itself doesn't equal progress.And that's really what we mean when we talk about bouncing forward. It helps us move from mere surviving to thriving. Today we get to our how. How do you develop resilience and use these essential skills? Time Stamps:3:15: The challenges we face in life are not meant to be some sort of punishment. But an invitation to change.6:57: 83% of people think they're resilient (but only just over half really are)13:06: Researchers have shown that resilience is basically optimism, self mastery, control, flexible thinking, and the ability to cope with stress when they're when they're doing their research.15:11: The Grateful Living practice24:32: The Lovingkindness Meditation practice33:53: Quality RelationshipsShow Notes:Bouncing Forward: The Art and Science of Cultivating Resilience by Michaela HaasThe Power of Resilience by Brooks and Goldstein The Good Life by Robert WaldingerClick here to order a copy of Shock Point: The Enneagram in Burnout and Stress.Follow up with us and check out our Burnout Coaching Package here.Subscribe on Spotify

Alexis Stephens aka Bust, has dedicated much of his life to dance in the Parisian hip hop scene, and has evolved into a painter, having asked himself, “How can I transfer multi-dimentional dance energy into a 2D image?” He represents the body as a sum of organized waves, and dynamic roiling gestures. Inspired by abstract expressionism and graffiti, he manages to successfully transcribe intense movement into single images. His works combine acrylic with oil pastel and are extreme, surreal, instinctual and jarring, yet also articulate and objective. His work has been described as “Profound yet subtle, vibrations that animate the form, and the representation of successive states of the self diving into landscape. Alexis believes in freedom, discovery, reflection, hope, global balance, humanity's old dream of flying like Icarus, not outwards, but inwards, and exploring the 'I' for a better 'We'. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/cutting-for-sign/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/cutting-for-sign/support

In today's episode, I am sharing a fascinating account of a near-death experience. These beautiful stories have a remarkable way of offering a glimpse into the mysteries and meaning of life. www.interviewswithinnocence.com
Florida property insurance companies, their policyholders, and repair contractors are starting the New Year with a new law designed to reform an out-of-control marketplace. The Florida Legislature in December passed comprehensive measures to stem high insurance and reinsurance rates, carrier insolvencies, inflated claims, excessive litigation, and an overly-competitive residual market.Former Florida Deputy Insurance Commissioner Lisa Miller talks with Citizens Property Insurance President & CEO Barry Gilway, insurance agency executive Andy McGuire, and reinsurance broker Adam Schwebach about the new law and the expectation it will help rebalance Florida's decimated property insurance market.Show NotesHost Miller was joined in the podcast by Barry Gilway, President, CEO, and Executive Director of Citizens Property Insurance; Adam Schwebach, Executive Vice President of reinsurance broker Gallagher Re; and Andy McGuire, Co-CEO of PEAK6 InsurTech, which includes an insurance agency representing more than 100,000 policyholders. (For full Show Notes, visit https://lisamillerassociates.com/episode-42-barry-gilway-floridas-new-law-is-a-profound-change/) The major provisions of the new law (SB 2-A) cover:Attorney Fees: Ends one-way attorney fees in residential and commercial property insurance policy lawsuits;Offers of Judgment: Reinstates the civil offer of judgment statute (also known as Proposals for Settlement) and makes attorney fees available for the prevailing party, while also allowing for joint offers of judgment;AOBS: Prohibits Assignment of Benefits (AOB) contracts of residential and commercial property insurance policies issued on or after January 1, 2023;Bad Faith: Prohibits the filing of a bad faith lawsuit until a final judgement is issued against the insurance company in the original claim dispute;Citizens Property Insurance Reforms: Makes many essential improvements to current laws governing the state-backed “insurer of last resort,” Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, including:- Changing the eligibility to remain a Citizens policyholder, by requiring that private insurance company coverage has to be 20% more expensive (up from 15%, to match current rules on new policies) and likewise for commercial residential policies;- Ending capped rates (the so-called “glide-path”) and requiring its rates be actuarially-sound and be “non-competitive” with admitted companies' market rates;- Defining and allowing higher rates for second (non-homesteaded) homes; and- Requiring personal lines policyholders purchase flood insurance to become or remain a Citizens policyholder.Reinsurance: Establishes a second optional hurricane reinsurance fund (The Florida Optional Reinsurance Assistance Program) for carriers, offering rates of 50% to 65% of the cost of on-line rates, while maintaining the Reinsurance to Assist Policyholders (RAP) program created in the May special session;Arbitration: Allows carriers to offer mandatory binding arbitration in their policies with a resulting premium discount;Claims Handling: Reduces from 90 days to 60 days the time insurance companies have to pay or deny a claim, unless extended by regulators; and reduce from 14 days to 7 days the time a carrier has to review and acknowledge a claim communication and begin an investigation, along with other time requirement changes;Claim Filing: Further tightens deadlines for policyholders to report a claim from 2 years to 1 year for a new or reopened claim, and from 3 years to 18 months for a supplemental claim; andGreater OIR Regulation: Allows the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) to withdraw approval of policies with an appraisal clause for companies that routinely invoke it; allows OIR to do market conduct exams after a hurricane on those companies in the top 20% of claims filed or DFS complaints and to include an examination of their MGAs; and requires companies begin monthly reporting of the numbers of claims opened, closed, pending, and those seeking alternative dispute resolution and of which type.You can read a more detailed list of major provisions here of the December 2022 law, built upon previous measures passed in the May 2022 legislative special session.Attorney Fees & AOBs: Gilway, a 46-year veteran of the property insurance industry, called the law “historic,” for repealing the state's one-way attorney fee statute which he blamed for putting seven insurance companies out of business in 2022, reducing the availability and affordable of insurance for consumers. “From a Citizens Insurance standpoint, our average litigation payment is $77,000 and the attorney fee associated with that payment is $39,000. I'm paying more than 1,000 attorneys to defend the 20,000 outstanding lawsuits we have, brought because there's an automatic payment under the one-way statute. You have to admit (the new law) is going to make a profound change in whether an attorney brings a suit or not.” According to the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, Florida has 7% of the nation's homeowners insurance claims yet 76% of the nation's homeowners insurance lawsuits. The new law also eliminates AOBs, which Gilway said are responsible for 47% of all Citizens litigation and 35% of the industry litigation. “These two provisions alone I think will have a profound impact on the industry's claims going forward,” said Gilway. He predicted this will draw capital back into the marketplace. “The bottom line is more and more calls every single day from investors saying how do I get in, because on a going forward basis, if I can leave the development of losses behind, and I can charge rates that that are based upon historic litigation rates, when the litigation rate is going to drop like a rock, then it's time for me to enter this marketplace.” Gilway said he believes it will take 12-18 months for the law's changes to impact the market.McGuire, whose business includes capital management and consulting, said that although he's excited and proud of the legislature's success, he's still “a little worried,” too. “With the cost of capital where it is right now, I'm still a little bit on the fence to see how things kind of wash through especially on the reinsurance side,” McGuire said, in sentiments echoed by Schwebach, a reinsurance broker for almost 20 years. “There needs to be a period right now of kind of proving out the results of this legislation before reinsurers really get on board,” Schwebach said. Past reforms haven't shown results in the inflated hurricane claims from Florida's primary insurance companies still being passed along to reinsurance companies to pay. “Will reinsurance prices come down immediately? I don't think so. Will reinsurers be more willing to commit capacity to the Florida market? I think there's a strong possibility,” he added. Nevertheless, Schwebach said the reinsurance market “thinks that this was a tremendous bill,” with McGuire anticipating many benefits for Florida policyholders. “This is going to unlock the opportunity for rates to be able to come down over time,” said McGuire, who has 150 insurance agents in Florida through the Team Focus Insurance Group and WeInsure, representing 100,000 policyholders. “It's also going to decrease the dependency of all of our agents on Citizens and really unlock consumer choice.”Gilway said the new law's litigation reform does not eliminate a policyholder's right to sue their insurance company. Allowing proposals for settlement and optional arbitration will allow lawsuits to be resolved more quickly, he said. “I believe it will be a huge advantage that could reduce the average length of a lawsuit from 750 days down to 310 to 320. It'll cut the length of the suit process in half and it will eliminate the suit process if they accept the arbitration language in the policy,” Gilway pointed out. He said one private company that has used optional arbitration has been able to reduce those policy rates by 20% for certain insurance policies.Claims Handling & Filing: Host Miller noted that the new law has a lot of changes to the way companies have to respond to claims going forward. McGuire said the requirement for faster claims handling is going to increase costs, something he's okay with. “I'm actually hopeful that these regulations combined with the elimination of AOBs and one-way attorney fees, that we can actually create a better consumer experience through insurance, and get away from what's been an almost adversarial claim experience and at the point of sale or at the point of claim create a much better customer experience,” said McGuire, who started his career 27 years ago working insurance claims.Schwebach agreed, adding that the law's requirement reducing the claim filing deadline from three years to one year will help, too. “If you don't understand that you have a claim within a year, it's probably not a claim,” he said, adding that this is another part of the new law where the reinsurance community is taking note, designed to make sure claims are legitimate and paid accurately and fairly. “At the end of the day, that's what reinsurers are basing their reinsurance pricing on. They go through a tremendous amount of analysis to try to understand in a hurricane scenario, the estimated loss, down to the policy level. When they're going back and reviewing that and seeing thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars of litigation fees being added on to what was in some instances, a very minor actual property loss, and they're being stuck with the bill for all of that, it throws their analysis out the window,” Schwebach said. Citizens Property Insurance Reforms: Another big part of the new law makes significant reforms to Citizens Property Insurance, the legislatively created and taxpayer-backed insurer of last resort for homeowners and businesses that can't find coverage in the private open market. “Citizens is ridiculously competitive. It's not the market of last resort, it has become the market of first resort,” said Gilway, who has headed Citizens since June 2012 and recently announced his retirement upon the successful changes in the new law that he has long advocated. He said Citizens' policy count has grown from 414,000 in 2019 to nearly 1.2 million today, in part due to private companies going out of business. “But there's a secondary issue, and the issue is, in some territories around the state, we're 50% below the market. So we're competing openly with the private market. That makes no sense whatsoever,” Gilway said.The new law changes the eligibility to remain a Citizens policyholder, ends capped rates, requires actuarially-sound and non-competitive rates with the private market, and allows higher rates for second homes – “all good, interim steps to get us back to the role that we were meant to operate in,” said Gilway. He said he hopes the private market will be in a better financial situation to resume depopulating Citizens' policy count by the end of 2023.“Who's going to come in and try to compete with a government entity?” agreed McGuire. “Why would you commit capital to that? Florida has now solved both of those and being able to talk to consumers about that is really, really important. And that's how this market is going to change.” McGuire said setting expectations that rates aren't going to go down immediately is part of that. “This is not a little speedboat here that we can just turn. This is a big aircraft carrier and it's going to take a little bit to get there, but we're going to get there,” he said.Reinsurance Help: Schwebach shared his insight on the Florida Optional Reinsurance Assistance Program created under the new law, to help insurance companies that cannot find affordable reinsurance in the private market. “I think the jury to a certain extent is very much out on how effective this reinsurance offering is going to be from the state,” he said. And while the market is appreciative of the effort, “I think they are trying to determine if there's true value in what's being offered, the capacity being provided relative to the price,” Schwebach said. He also discussed the important role reinsurance plays in the Florida insurance market and how consumers benefit from its availability.Host Miller stressed that the new law should mark a new beginning among consumers, agents, insurance companies, contractors, investors, reinsurers, legislators, and Realtors. “This should be a collaboration to get away from the nasty litigation and the adversarial relationships that we've seen over the past few years so that we can restore this market so that it will be vibrant for our consumers and very competitive,” said Miller.Links and Resources Mentioned in this EpisodePEAK6 InsurTechGallagher ReCitizens Property Insurance CorporationKey Provisions of 2022 Insurance Consumer Protections & Market Reforms (SB 2-D & SB 2-A)Reinsurance to Assist Policyholders (RAP) Program Florida Optional Reinsurance Assistance (FORA) Program Property Insurance Stability Report (Florida Office of Insurance Regulation, July 2022) 2022 Litigation Reform & Consumer Protections (Lisa Miller & Associates)Florida Market ‘Plagued' by Attorney Fee-Shifting (LMA Newsletter of December 5, 2022) ** The Listener Call-In Line for your recorded questions and comments to air in future episodes is 850-388-8002 or you may send email to LisaMiller@LisaMillerAssociates.com **The Florida Insurance Roundup from Lisa Miller & Associates, brings you the latest developments in Property & Casualty, Healthcare, Workers' Compensation, and Surplus Lines insurance from around the Sunshine State.

As we continue to consider the profound nature of the incarnation of Christ, we see that there's no way we could have done for ourselves what He did for us. We couldn't save ourselves and so God set it up with the purpose of saving us in mind. Do you realize that if you were the only person in this world, God would have still sent Jesus to die for you? Isn't that amazing to consider?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Christianity changed everything for Biochemist and President of Reasons to Believe, Fazale "Fuz" Rana. As a Muslim child he was taught that Allah would never allow one of his prophets to suffer humiliation. It wasn't until he encountered Jesus that he came to understand that Christ's suffering was the most amazing act of love. Faith Radio podcasts are made possible by your support. Give now: Click here

Grief is not all darkness and oftentimes, the greatest tragedies can ignite the most positive, powerful transformations in our lives. Our guest, Kristine Carlson, knows what tragedy is. Happily married in her 40s with two young kids, she very suddenly lost the love of her life, Richard.

One small step for Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen, one giant leap for mankind. So goes the story of several of the entrepreneur, philanthropist, and humanitarian's pursuits over the past three decades. At present the founder and CEO of Sceye, a company building stratospheric platforms to help prevent human trafficking and monitor climate change, Vestergaard has a long history in developing catalytic products that have quite literally revolutionized the humanitarian and public health landscapes. Through his eponymous material science company Vestergaard, he developed PermaNet, a screen designed to kill mosquitoes by contact, which has more than halved the global prevalence of malaria, and ZeroFly, a storage bag that protects agricultural commodities against insect infestation, mold growth, oxidation, and rancidity. With LifeStraw, he created a product that filters contaminated water, which has eradicated Guinea worm disease from South Asia and all but eradicated it from Sub-Saharan Africa. Imbuing a values-driven approach into everything he does, Vestergaard is driven by the desire to close the gap between those who have and those who don't.On the episode, Vestergaard talks with Andrew about the values of equity he was raised with in Scandinavia, the importance of maintaining rigor and commitment over time, and why doing good and doing business aren't mutually exclusive.Special thanks to our Season 6 sponsor, L'ÉCOLE, School of Jewelry Arts.Mikkel Vestergaard Frandsen[02:55] Sceye[39:03] PermaNet[45:27] LifeStraw

If you let it, fitness can change your entire life. We've experienced it ourselves and we see endless examples in our clients. Once you focus on self-improvement in one area of life, it begins to positively trickle over into all other areas of life. A lot of people think that fitness is all about aesthetics and 6-pack abs. After listening to this episode, you will understand the much deeper impact health and fitness has on life as a whole.

CW: ED + BIAS; Our society isn't built for people who exist within so many various human bodies, and then has the audacity to imply that the same human bodies who were overlooked + or disregarded is the problem. This completely overlooks the systems that created + implemented the problem. This makes it nearly impossible to not pick up on some of that disregard. So in an effort to rectify the harm perpetuated by this propaganda, I will never stop shouting about the PROFOUND evidence that contradicts these rampant social stigmas.

Moojibaba opens this powerful guided meditation by reading from the Ashtavakra Gita. The guidance that follows is a direct transmission of grace from the Master to all those who are searching for liberation. “You are not your name or gender; you are not that which is trapped in the past or reaching for future. You are timeless awareness. Where did it begin? How could it end? Your Self is not a journey nor an object to possess. Abide persistently in this knowing, where knowing and being are one. Be reminded, you are not merely a person. Say inside your heart: ‘I am the Self, without doubt, imperishable, unborn and unchanging.'” 4 December 2022 ~ More talks like this are available on Sahaja Express: https://mooji.org/sahaja-express If you would like to support the sharing of Satsang, you can donate here: https://mooji.org/donate?tcode=mtv7 #Mooji #satsang #spirituality #advaita #nonduality #awakening
