Saving Cash

This week on our show we had Beckie Farrant from Infarrantly creative. Beckie has a popular blog on blogged. With nearly three thousand fans and growing; Beckie teaches us how to make crafts, refurbish goods and be inherently creative.  Her blog Infarrantly Creative is a play off of her last name and the word inherently. The word “inherent” which means: existing in someone or something as a permanent and inseparable element, quality, or attribute. Beckie is a self-proclaimed DIY gal with big vision and a little budget.

Beckie carries off her big visions on a small budget like nothing else I have ever seen. She transformed her kitchen into a showplace spending on $216 to carry out the task. Crafting is not the only place that Beckie saves money. Beckie is also an avid couponer. She uses a site called along with the weekly grocery/drug store adds, coupons from the Sunday paper, and a little time.  For a family of four the average grocery bill is over $1000 a month; Beckie only spends $250 a month and has a enough to have a substantial stockpile in her home.  She regularly makes packages from her stockpile to give to those in need.

Here are a few of the sights that Beckie uses:

Let’s all go out and try the grocery game. After all saving money is always a good thing.

Opening our hearts

Recently I was reading an article in a magazine, Spirituality & Health, called Opening / A New Way of Seeing

I call this post; Opening our hearts because in a post about a month ago a comment was made about the danger of plastics and balloons that carelessly find their way into young birds thus killing them. I thought to myself gosh I really want to see what this is all about. That’s my way of opening my heart if you will….well, what I found will break your heart, but through opening we can make a difference.

I will warn you once you go to this website and view these photographs you will think twice about what you drop on the ground or allow to fly in the air only to eventually find it’s way on the ground.

Photographer, Chris Jordan documents what can only be described as pain and anguish for these small baby birds. My hope by sharing this is that we as a people begin to see how we can make a difference. As for me, I have immediately begun to pick up trash that isn’t mine in hopes that our trash when possible, be recycled and if not, put in a safe place.

The website that I ask you to check out…

Although I have yet to speak to Chris, I am hopeful we will have him on our blogtalk radio, The language of light.

Peace,  Susan

The Big Pink Bus

Our first show of the year was on Thursday Jan. 7, 2010.  The Naughty Kitchen’s (Oxygen Channel) Chef Blythe Beck joined us for the start of fabulous New Year.  Blythe is the Executive Chef  at Central 214 located at Hotel Palomar in Dallas, Texas.

Blythe’s motto is, “My goal is to create amazingly memorable food with the freshest ingredients and lots of love you can taste.” She Continues by saying, “It’s meant to celebrate with you in the good times., it’s there to comfort you in the sad times, and it will cheer you on when you have done well. ” (Beck, Blythe 2009

Blythe is very passionate about the work that she does. She wants every one to be “Naughty” .  “Naughty” means butter, cream, pork fat and lot of flavor. One of the most popular items on the Central 214 menu is chicken fried Kobe Beef with  mustard greens, whipped potatoes and bacon red-eye gravy. Doesn’t that make your mouth water.  The naughtilicious menu continues with  naughty cream corn, pumpkin stuffed apples,  champagne and brie bisque, and so many other deliciously naughty items on the menu.

As big a passion as Blythe has to share her food with the world she has a passion for giving back to the community that equals it. Blythe participates in several charities: Foundation 56, The North Texas Foodbank, Resource Center of Dallas and taste of the NFL. Blythe also shared a dream of hers with us. She wants a Big Pink Bus that she can travel around the U.S. with coming to her “Naughty Armies” houses and cooking with them in their kitchens. Blythe calls her fans the “Naughty Army”.  Join her on face book and twitter to be a part of her army…

Blythe was a great way to start off the new year. Looks like it will be an amazing one.

Medicine Grizzly Bear

Hello everyone, this week on Language of  Light, we were honored to have Bobby Lake-Thom on the show. Some call him Medicine Grizzly Bear he was amazing. Those in the chat room were mesmerized by every word.  So many positive comments about what Medicine Grizzly Bear was teaching us.  Medicine Grizzly Bear lead us in an ancient song of the Eagle and the mountain after our meditation.  He talked of how each plant, animal, mineral, and person are interconnected through nature.  He shared with us a story that really made me stop and say “WOW”.   The night before the earthquake in Haiti the roosters were crowing around his house.  Native American folklore says a rooster crowing at night is a bad omen. Rooster’s normally crow in the morning.  That night he had trouble dreams and dreamed of the earth moving, shaking and buckling. He saw many people injured. That was the night before the big earthquake.

It reminded me of the movie Avatar where the Na’vi teach the sky people about how all life is an energy and is connected. Life, a complete circle, the energy given us when we are born passes back into the earth as when our time to transition into the spirit realm.  I invite each person to take time to connect with what you consider nature, hug a tree, smell a flower, watch a butterfly, feel the air touch your skin. There are so many ways to connect with nature.  If every person could feel the earth’s heartbeat I believe it would change them in some special way.

Love & Letting it be…

It is the most popular question to date..Does he/she love me? I appreciate the question, I do. I am ask this question about 50 times a week. No, I am not kidding.

I am always moved by the power of the emotion the question holds as well as the question itself. For I know when it is asked it is most often because someone is in a fear.  Fear that the love of their life is being threatened or worse that they themselves are unlovable. The threat is rarely physically & yet we often feel it physically. The fear often stems within ones own heart. Which is why it always moves me, how is it, that something that cannot be seen but only felt, can be so consuming. This, I realize is not a new thought to anyone reading this and the question itself is age old.

We all know the various types of love, from i love you to I LOVE YOU!! Puppy love my personal favorite to friends, family and the all encompassing romantic LOVE. The labels we place on those we love and ourselves can at times be overwhelming.

Which of course leads me to the language of light answer..this too will be no surprise. The love we overlook most often….loving oneself. Love thy self! It is written in sacred text, many languages and once it is understood the question; Does he or she love me, leaves the consciousness and it simply is known, of course they love you! They may be unaware of the love they hold for you because of the lack they have for themselves.

The how to book of loving thyself is still in the works! It can only and I mean ONLY be written by you for you to you and about YOU! Sounds kind-of selfish doesn’t it but once you see just how loving and wonderful you are, you will allow all of us to know and love you. Just think of the person you love, love them more than anything (doesn’t matter if they know it) what would you say about that person, child, or animal? Go ahead…write it down. Now, whatever it is that you have written about them, write above their name, your name. Look in the mirror and read that to YOU! Feel the your heart felt words, let it be and breathe in your love! You have officially begun your very own love thyself book!  It’s a beginning.

Happy happy!!

Peace, Susan

New Years Resolution or not?

New Year’s resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or the reforming of a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The name comes from the fact that these commitments normally go into effect on New Year’s Day. Some examples include resolutions to donate to the poor more often, to become more assertive, or to become more environmentally responsible.

There are religious parallels to this secular tradition. People may act similarly during the Christian fasting period of Lent, though the motive behind this holiday is more of sacrifice than of responsibility. During Judaism’s New Year, Rosh Hashanah, through the High Holidays and culminating in Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), one is to reflect upon one’s wrongdoings over the year and both seek and offer forgiveness. The concept, regardless of creed, is to reflect uponself-improvement annually.

Recent research shows that while 52% of participants in a resolution study were confident of success with their goals, only 12% actually achieved their goals. Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting, a system where small measurable goals are used (lose a pound a week, instead of saying “lose weight”), while women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.

So says Wikipedia, where I did a simple cut and paste..I am a non-participant with the tradition of New Year’s Resolutions…However, I do take time to reflect the year. And I also like to write down what brings me joy or what I would like to accomplish in the up coming year, then I write down on another sheet of paper how I spend my time during the day. So as an example, I may want to spend time with family, finish a book, teach meditation, etc…and then on the sheet of what am I actually doing it might be, watched tv for 2 hours, walked the dogs, worked 6 hours, prepared meal, talked on the phone…I take an accurate look at what I say I want and how I invest my time achieving it. I always find a gap! ALWAYS!! So then I look at what I REALLY want?

We all know there are many ways to do this resolution-tradition. I would love to hear what you do. Wishing you and yours a great Holiday and a prosperous New Year in all things that you are wanting!!

Happy New YEAR!! 2010!!

Peace, Susan

Artist Extriodinare

On Dec. 17, 2009 we had the privilege and honor to have Lisa Hunt on our show. She was truly amazing. Her artwork speaks to me on many levels, the way in which she creates art is fabulous in that she begins with her true self.

We started off the evening with a meditation and Lisa made the comment directly after was that she has been experiencing torrential rains in her area and they petered off during the course of the meditation. What a way to start the show!

Lisa stressed the importance of downtime and of mediation. She often enters a meditative state before engaging in her artwork. Lisa often sits with nature before starting a new piece of work. It reflects in her artwork. She is so in touch with nature. Lisa believes that there is a bit of spirit in everything. I so agree. Every place I look in nature there is a life and spirit. Lisa believes that nature is like a perpetual picture book.  We all have prominent images in our mind that we can see with perfect clarity. Tarot is much the same. Each image is captured with clarity to represent a moment in a person’s life.

Lisa also talks about how she tries to paint the depth of the tree or object and not just a tree or objects. How beautiful is that. She wants to give life and meaning to everything in her art work.

I loved having her on the show it was like chatting with a dear friend….

Balloon Release

This blog today is 100% Candi’s based on ideas that help us physically let go of old binds and thoughts..Thank you Candi..

Yesterday Susan and I had a great talk on the phone. As a result of this conversation I decided to get some helium balloons to release. I bought a pink heart shaped mylar, a gold star shaped mylar, gold latex, silver latex, and green latex.  I attached a note to the balloon along with another piece of paper that was a symbol for me.   As I wrote the note I put down what my intentions were. What I wanted to manifest into my life immediately.  The balloons sat in the back seat of the car and filled my view the whole way home.

It was freezing outside but I knew that  I needed to be in a specific place to release the balloons.  Coming into my house I let the dogs out of their crates and we headed into our small back yard. Fresh fallen snow covering the ground. I looked up into the sky and couldn’t help giggling. I felt like I was five again. Here I was with a handful of helium balloons. You remember your parent telling you to hold on tight and  not let the balloon go. It would float away and you would not be getting another one.

So I stood there looking up into the sky with this immense joy filling my heart.  I felt small again but in a good way.  Like I really was that five year old with my whole life ahead of me. Looking at the world with innocent eyes.  Then I let go.  Think about those words. The action was to physically let go of the bunch of balloons. The reality was just letting go. Giving myself to the Universe. Having faith that my intentions would be carried where they needed to go to be fulfilled.   What do you need to let go of today?

Peace, Susan

LA Healer

I met Dr. Craig first a number of months ago when he was a guest on my show, and then more recently in person in LA California. He is remarkable on so many levels. I personally have had more than one session with him because he goes beyond the interpretation of an astrology chart.

On the Dec. 10th show we were lucky to have Dr. Craig Martin.  To give you some history, Dr. Craig spent 18 years as a chiropractor in New York. During his time as a chiropractor he gained an understanding of what was needed for healings to occur. Dr Craig describes himself as ” a Holistic healer, Astrologer, and  Homeopathic  Physician.”

Before the show my assistant Candi sent Dr. Craig her personal information: First name, date, place and time of birth.  We were all stunned by the accuracy of this session. Though he had little time to prepare he was remarkably accurate. The depth of accuracy stunned not only myself, and Candi, but her mother happened to be listening to the show, she was most impressed.

Dr. Craig went on to take a few calls giving astrology readings  to the callers.  Everyone was amazed.  Your astrological chart is unique to you.  All the necessary information plays an important role in your session, he couples that with his years of experience and this makes him a true gift in his field.

Dr. Craig has a new book coming out called; Elemental Love Styles.  Millions of people want to find and keep a partner in their life, this book will assist you.  It is available to pre-order NOW at his website!! Dr. Craig gives you the tools to identify and achieve the relationship you desire.

Joyful Pathways

Last Thursday one of the guest on our radio program The Language of Light with Susan Cotter was Cindi Richards.  Cindi has just finished writing a book “Be The Master of Your Own Emotions” the book informs us what it’s like to be an empath and gives the tools and knowledge needed to walk in the world comfortably.

Cindi started the show with an amazing meditation.  One of the techniques she used was to envision cords coming from our bodies and going into earth. Then sending the cords all the way to the molten center of the earth’s core.  Then she had us envision roots shooting from the cord in all directions.  As the roots stretch in all directions she advises us to “choose to release all that is not mine.”  This allows all the energy that you have collected over the day to seep out of your body, out of your energy and go down into “mother earth.”

Cindi pointed out that we all carry stuff from everyone else. By using this method we let all pour out of us and lighten the load energetically.  The meditation continues. It’s truly beautiful. Please see the link below so you can hear the entire meditation. It is well worth the listen.

Cindi has this to say about herself: ”

I am an empath. This is a concept that I did not comprehend until my early forties when I met a fabulous woman with extraordinary healing gifts. It was with her guidance that I found my path to emotional balance.

Emotional balance is a tricky thing under most circumstances, but as an empath, it is more like navigating a storm at sea – alone. For those of you who don’t know what an empath is, it simply means this: we feel everyone’s emotions. We are the people who are called “too sensitive,” who become overwhelmed in crowds, large parties, or any place where emotions are riding high. We are the ones whose emotions are much like a roller coaster ride, high one minute and low the next. Empaths may also appear to be so emotionally shut down that they appear cold. However, this is merely a form of protection, a way to stop the storm.

It is not an easy road as we don’t know where our emotions end and another person’s emotions begin. It is a bit like living life without skin. We feel everything. Imagine being at the mall and feeling everyone’s emotions. In one store, we feel happy, another stressed, and the next tired and frustrated or angry. Once home, we are completely exhausted as we have run the gamut of emotions, all within a couple of hours. As children and young adults, it is difficult to differentiate that all these emotions are not ours since we go through so many hormonal changes and physical growth. Why would it occur to us or anyone associated with us that we are experiencing someone else’s feelings? Empaths feel the emotions of people in close proximity to us as well as the people we interact with personally or long distance. We absorb the energy of any place that is full of emotions, such as a party or a room where people have just had a fight. For those whose sensitivity is really strong, we can pick up on the emotions that remain in a room even after the people have left.

Empaths are those of us who know without words how another person is feeling and reach out to comfort. We are naturally compassionate because we know firsthand how that person is feeling. We are born healers if we choose that road, but we need to learn the tools and tricks to protect ourselves. I have found it to be a very rewarding and joyous life. Once I understood what it meant to be an empath, I learned how to create boundaries from other people’s emotions and how to clear those emotions from my energy system.  With these tools in place, I found a sense of peace – emotional peace. What a gift. This is the journey I will take you through – my journey from the storm at sea to the peaceful harbor.” (Richards,C. Nov. 27,2009)

Cindi has so many wonderful insights. I recommend that you visit her website listed below and also pre-order her book.  Cindi’s book will be available in Feb/March 2010 Release date forthcoming
