Episode 20 – Special Episode

One Generation Peace Project

Podcast 020 Photo
Listen Now:
Show Notes:

The core of One Generation Peace Project’s mission is to create a world of peace and love in One Generation. To show our youth that love and truth are the pathway. To show our youth that peace and harmony are within them and that hiding and holding our emotions inside is not the answer.

This movement is about bringing out the best in ourselves and our children, our youth. It’s about teaching them another way to BE in the world. It’s about understanding that we are not broken and there is nothing to fix. Because what we ARE – what we truly are – is ALWAYS THERE. What we are at our inner-most depths cannot be taken away or broken or eliminated. And sometimes all we need is someone to believe in us, to help us look deeply within and SEE IT and LET IT SHINE.

One Generation is about making a positive impact through love, purpose and freedom. Building a bridge between what society has ingrained in us and our greatest potential. It’s about leadership and community and creating from that place of purpose and truth.

This movement is about healing the planet.

We can create a world of love and peace in One Generation.

We can heal the entire planet in One Generation.

NOW is the time.

Start with YOU. Start TODAY. Start NOW.

Because LOVE is always the answer.

Episode 019 – Barbara Biziou

Rituals for Life

Podcast 019 Photo
Listen Now:
Show Notes:

Over the last three decades, Barbara Biziou has empowered tens of thousands of people from all walks of life through her Joy of Ritual books, TV & speaking engagements, consulting, customized life rituals and group intensives. Her greatest passion is marrying cross-cultural ancient rituals and rites and applying it to current times, creating what she refers to as the “alchemical art of ritual fusion.”

Questions:
  • Rituals are powerful in these ways:
    • You are honoring by creating a structured event that will move you from one level of conscious to another – making the ordinary into something sacred
    • Calling other resources beyond self
    • Brain doesn’t know difference between ritual or actual event
  • Barbara shares a very personal story about her sisters passing and how that led her into practicing rituals.
  • Rituals gives us feeling of comfort to try new things and stretch ourselves.
  • How can one use ritual to open themselves up to more prosperity and success in their lives? You must be open to receiving.
  • A simple ritual for prosperity and success is practicing daily gratitude – especially when struggling with lack. The ritual is the key to open the door and you have to walk through and do something new.
  • The keys to seeing lasting results after a ritual are consistency and a change of behavior.
  • If you feel like things aren’t changing use a letting go ritual – write on paper or write key words on rocks and consciously let go as you drop the rocks or shred the paper.
  • A quick everyday practice of releasing and letting go has changed Barbara’s life – she shares how to do it.
Barbara’s Practical Tip:

Start a Success Jar

  1. Set a goal for yourself or create a to-do list.
  2. Designate a beautiful jar to acknowledge your successes.
  3. Each time you take a step closer to your goal (small or large) put money in your success jar.
  4. Watch your success & money grow.
  5. Use the money to spend on yourself and savor your success.
