Mindful Expansion - Numbers and
Patterns in Life
We find patterns in every facet of life, indeed the
human skill at finding patterns is one of our most important tools
of survival. This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley
examine patterns and numbers in our personal lives and in society
at large. Are we tied to repeating cycles in life? Can we change
the patterns of our lives? How do numbers and mathematics tie into
our reality? Please join us as we tackle these questions and more
on Spirit of Life!
Love is an essential part of existence, and a
wonderful part. But we must be aware of how we behave when it
comes to the loving relationships in our lives. Whether it’s in
romantic partnerships, family, or friendships, how we choose to
behave is all important. All healthy relationships must be
balanced and win win. On this edition of Spirit of Life, Drs.
Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley engage on this topic and explore
all the various facets of loving relationships. Please join us on
our continuing journey to explore the human condition!
Mindful Expansion - Finding Your
This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley
dive into a fascinating discussion centered around finding one’s
identity. Of course, our identity is essential to our perspective
of the world, but how much does the outside world shape us? How
does the push and pull of nature & nurture relate to our self
concept? And how can we untangle our identities from the need for
acceptance and belonging? Please join us as we explore these
fascinating and fundamental concepts on Spirit of Life!
The thoughts we allow, the ideas we consume (both purposefully and
unconsciously), and the things we focus on in our lives
unquestionably have a major role in forming our personality and
identity. This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter & Michael Kelley explore
the nuance to this and how we can take an active role in what
information we’re focusing on, and how we can better control our
perceptions of reality. Please join us on Spirit of Life for
another exciting exploration of life!
This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley explore the idea
of interdimensional beings. First, it’s important to define what
we’re talking about, which would be entities or phenomena that
exist intertwined in our reality in dimensions that are beyond our
perception. There are accounts from credible persons, legends and
stories from indigenous peoples, and more that can shed some
insight into what may exist beyond our ability to sense. Please
join us on another exploration of the unknown on Spirit of Life!
Mindful Expansion - Resilience
Through Changing Chapters of Life
On this edition of Spirit of Life, Drs. Vicki
Hunter and Michael Kelley discuss the very important topic of
maintaining our resilience in the face of an ever changing world.
As we enter the new chapters of our life, it’s paramount that we
focus on what we can control and how we can best shape the new
chapter ahead. The past can be painful but it also holds valuable
lessons for how we move forward, and helps to teach us how we can
best write the next chapters of our lives. Please join us as we
continue our exploration of the human experience!
This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter & Michael Kelley have
an open discussion covering several topics. We consider the
natural world and our place in it, and the push and pull between
our sentience and animal instincts. We also discuss the importance
of hope, the difference between “them-esteem” and self-esteem, and
more! Please join us for a varied and engaging edition of Spirit
On this week's Spirit of Life, Drs. Vicki Hunter
and Michael Kelley discuss the importance of taking the long view
into account when tackling life's challenges. We find strength in
remembering the past we've overcome, and hope in the future yet to
be. To have a greater awareness of life and our place in it,
context is key. We live in challenging times, but we can look at
the breadth of human history and see how far we've come, and know
the future will always hold hope!
Mindful Expansion - How
Nature/Nurture Shapes Our Reality
The nature vs. nurture debate has raged for
centuries among those that study what it means to be human. Are we
a blank slate (tabula rasa)? Or, do we come into this life with
experience from our ancestors? How do these factors shape our
reality? And, perhaps most important, what does this mean for free
will? Please join us on Spirit of Life as we tackle these
questions and more!
Mindful Expansion - Develop Your
Own Psychic Abilities
Tonight, Drs. Vicki Hunter & Michael Kelley delve
into developing psychic ability. Do we all have psychic intuition,
or is it relegated to certain individuals with a natural ability?
And, how can these potential psychic abilities manifest? We
discuss how different talents may require different paths of
development. And we also consider the ever changing nature of our
reality and how it impacts psychic intuition. Please join us for
another engaging Spirit of Life!
This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley
discuss how we can maintain our own peace and harmony in this
increasingly chaotic and angry world. Using the proven methods of
Metaphysical Humanism, we can apply increased awareness to
navigate these challenges. Remember, control only what one is
entitled to control, and above all, do no harm and do right.
Please join us for another engaging edition of Spirit of Life!
Mindful Expansion - What Defines
Right and Wrong? Part 1
On this week’s Spirit of Life, Drs. Vicki Hunter
and Michael Kelley discuss the essential question of what defines
right and wrong. Is there an objective morality, or are ethics
relative to culture? As Metaphysical Humanists, we have core
values expressed in the 9 Principles of Belief that help guide us.
It’s also important to remember to only control what one is
entitled to control. While our discussion was unfortunately cut
short due to technical difficulties, we will continue with part
two on the next edition of Spirit of Life!
Mindful Expansion - What Defines
Right and Wrong? Part 2
This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley continue on the
topic of defining right and wrong. We continue our examination of
ethics and morality by looking at how inherent bias can tint our
view of reality and shape our view of what is right. It’s commonly
said, “a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing”, and
we’ll focus on the importance of context and wider awareness in
determining what is right. We’ll tackle questions such as "do the
ends ever justify the means? Are there matters that are black and
white, or is everything a shade of gray? And, how do our emotions
affect our ethics?" Please join us on another thought provoking
edition of Spirit of Life!
Tonight on Spirit of Life, Drs. Vicki Hunter and
Michael Kelley draw cards from our Inner Oracle Self-Discovery
Cards for our live listeners. Please join us as we apply the sound
reasoning of Metaphysical Humanism to address the challenges in
our lives, and as always expand our awareness!
Please join us as Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael
Kelley are joined by special guest, Dr. Zack Frame. We’ll be
discussing intuitive people and their readings; how their
differing techniques, experience, and talents shape their
readings. We look forward to continuing our exploration of
awareness on Spirit of Life!
Mindful Expansion - Do the Dead
Care About the Living?
On this week's Spirit of Life program, we dive into
the question, "Do the dead care about the living?" To examine
this, we have to discuss what death means, and both our conception
of and perceptions of the afterlife. What does it mean to care
about the living? Are our loved ones still connected to us after
they pass into the next phase of existence? Please join Drs. Vicki
Hunter and Michael Kelley as they tackle these questions and more!
On this week’s broadcast we will be exploring the
concept of the astral plane. We will examine the origins of the
astral plane as we know it, and what impact it may have on the
physical world. Please join Drs. Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley
on Spirit of Life as they dive into a topic that has fascinated
humanity since the time of the ancients!
Join Drs. Vicki Hunter & Michael Kelley as we begin
2023 looking toward an optimistic future. There will always be
things in life that cause fear, but we need not surrender to it.
Tonight we discuss how the lessons learned at IMHS enable us to
meet the fears in our life head on. We explore the transformative
power of kindness, and delve into the nature of change. We also
spend time pulling Inner Oracle Self-Discovery cards for our live
listeners to see what the year may bring. Please join us as we
charge into the New Year on Spirit of Life!
Tonight, Drs. Vicki Hunter & Michael Kelley are
joined by our longtime friend of the program and resident
Cardkeeper (who helps track patterns for cards pulled for our
listeners), Wendy White. She talks about how much IMHS has meant
to her life, and the wonderful lessons she's learned. We reminisce
on the history of Spirit of Life going back to our days of Video
Broadcasts, and our wonderful community. Please join us for a very
special and heartwarming edition of Spirit of Life!
Tonight on Spirit of Life, we delve into the concept of destiny,
fate, and chaos. What is predestined? What is random? Join Drs.
Vicki Hunter and Michael Kelley as we continue to explore the
vastness of existence!
This week, Drs. Vicki Hunter & Michael Kelley
tackle the ever present challenge of adversity and chaos. This is
an inevitable part of life and one we cannot prevent, but we can
choose how we respond to it. Will the adversity drag us down? Or
will overcoming it help us reach new heights? Join us on another
engaging edition of Spirit of Life!
