What would you do if your best friend was dying and, as one of their last requests, asked you to learn how to speak to people who have passed to the other side? Well, that’s exactly what our guest, Julie Vinson was asked to do.
In 2011, Julie’s dear friend, Patricia Mowry, passed away. But before she did, she told Julie that she wanted her to learn how to speak to her on the other side. So in essence, become a medium. At this time in Julie’s life she was about as far away from the woo-woo as you can get.
But Julie trusted the Divine Breadcrumb she received from Patty and what transpired over the last few years is nothing short of miraculous.
Today Julie is owner and founder of Dragonflies and Amber, a community that brings together healers, mediums and other light workers to teach, heal and enlighten. Dragonflies and Amber is a magical place, and is more like a living entity which is growing and shifting every day.
Join Deb and Carol as they listen to Julie’s story, including severe health issues and her search to heal herself, as well as how she created a healing space that’s 100% Divinely inspired.
In this special episode, Deb and Carol talk with energy medicine practitioner and channel, Myra Astorga.
Myra describes channeling as connecting with the higher realms, which involves setting aside the egoic mind and going into an altered state to allow higher consciousness to channel through.
In 2004, Myra had a spiritual experience which left her with the ability to interpret and deliver insights about people. Information on their specific soul qualities and certain human behavioral patterns would come up in these conversations. Myra helps people to remember who they are and why this is so important.
While Myra was talking with us, she started to spontaneously channel the beings she refers to as the Gods and Goddesses (at approximately 21:15). They came through with some beautiful messages for everyone on Earth right now. With fear running rampant due to the spread of the Coronavirus, the Gods and Goddesses provided us with important information and hope. They also gave specific messages to Deb and Carol surrounding the mission of The Divine Breadcrumb.
Trust us—you're not going to want to miss this one. We truly believe that this will raise your spirits and your vibration, which are both needed right now.

In this episode we’re talking to the Shine Bright CEO himself—Michael Sandler! Michael is the host of Inspire Nation Show where he interviews the best of the best-thought leaders in business, spirituality, health, as well as light workers across the globe.
But Michael is also a thought leader in his own right. Aside from his top-rated show, he is also a best-selling author and is releasing his new book, The Automatic Writing Experience, later this year. He is also a sought-after coach, sharing his wisdom and light with the world.
Michael has also experienced some of the most horrific accidents, two resulting in near death experiences (NDEs). Although the accidents left him with two titanium hips and two titanium femurs (among other serious injuries), Michael explains that these experiences cracked his heart space wide open—literally and figuratively, changing his life in ways he couldn’t have imagined.
Join Carol and Deb as they talk with Michael about what he learned from his NDEs, the power of Automatic Writing, what it means to be an open-hearted warrior, and why being "kind, easy, gentle, good" with ourselves is Michael’s signature mantra.
Countless people suffer from anxiety and other mental health issues. It’s no joke. But what if you could teach people what it’s like to live with anxiety through stories and humor?
Our guest in this episode is doing just that. Elaine Best is host of the popular Angus Eye Tea Podcast which she describes as a “Comedy Mental Health Podcast.” Elaine is not only hilarious, but she’s also one smart woman.
To say that Elaine is open about living with anxiety is an understatement. She gives you the good, bad, and the ugly, but she does it in a way that makes the listener feel comfortable. Elaine’s podcast attracts listeners of all ages, but what’s interesting is that parents of children with anxiety are starting to tune in as well.
In this episode Elaine shares how a Divine Breadcrumb moment led her to her first therapist and then to starting a podcast. She also describes some of her earliest fears as well as one of her most embarrassing moments (we can relate!).
Join us for this informative, raw, and hilarious episode!
It’s our 50th episode and we’re celebrating with a special episode featuring our own Deb and Carol! In this episode they share some lessons learned, what’s transpired since the show launched and what they’re excited about right now.
Deb flips the script on Carol and asks her about how her life experiences led to her coaching business as well as what makes her coaching business a little different than the norm. During the course of the conversation they also discuss some of their childhood experiences as well as the Divine Breadcrumbs that have brought them to where they are now.
Carol and Deb also discuss The Divine Breadcrumb’s new program, Life Flip™, how it originated, what it entails, and what they hope the impact will be. Carol and Deb made big life changes in their 50s and want everyone to know that ANYONE can make a change. It’s never too late and you don’t have to start from ground zero. Life Flip is all about building on the wisdom and experience that you already have!
Thank you to all our listeners! We hope you enjoy this milestone episode!

Today we’re talking with Visa Shanmugam. Visa describes herself as a “change catalyst” for professional women who are highly accomplished yet find themselves chasing happiness. She helps them overcome disempowering beliefs, release hidden shame and get them out of their heads to dive deep into their hearts.
Visa grew up in a traditional, conservative Indian family. At a young age she had an arranged marriage and she and her husband moved to the U.S soon after. It was a difficult time and Visa struggled to find her place in the world. On top of this, she was diagnosed with a life-altering auto immune disease in her early 20s.
Visa went from living with this horrible diagnosis and the fear and depression that went along with it, to creating a life and career of her dreams! Because of all Visa’s experiences, she has a unique take on helping women shift from feeling like a powerless spectator of their life to becoming the powerful creator of their future.
Applying radical self-love and spirituality principles, Visa guides her clients in identifying the patterns, pressures and self-loathing holding them back so they lead a fulfilling, fun and meaningful life.
Carol and Deb talk with Visa about her own personal story including the fateful day when a powerful meditation gave her the Divine Breadcrumb she needed to change her life. We also talk about self-love, finding your voice and the joy of connecting with your inner child!
What if you could see what your life would look like if you made different choices? In this follow-up episode we’re talking with friend of the show, Jordan Gross. Jordan is author of the new book, The Journey to Cloud Nine, Confront the Past, Redefine the Future which explores topics such as success, failure, gratitude, and connection and also begs the question “am I living the life of my dreams?”
Jordan shares how the idea for this book came to him, how it’s being received and what he hopes the impact will be. We also talk about who will play the protagonist in the movie version and why Jordan isn’t rushing to start his next project, but instead is watching the process unfold.
Jordan is a Northwestern and Kellogg School of Management graduate as well as leadership coach and Tedx speaker.
Jordan is also the founder of Cloud Nine Living, a way of life that embraces living your life from a place of meaning and purpose.
We love talking with Jordan because so much of what he’s doing is in alignment with our own mission—putting good out into the world and helping people to live their best lives.
Today we’re joined by Executive Coach, Alisa Cohn. Alisa was recently named the Number One Start-up Coach in the World at the 2019 Thinkers50 Marshall Goldsmith Coaching Awards in London. She was also just named one of the Top 30 Global Gurus for Startups of 2020 as well as one of the top 100 leadership speakers by Inc. Magazine.
Alisa helps her high-level clients to address all kinds of challenges and gives them the tools to not only achieve personal mastery but to create thriving high-functioning teams. She is known for her direct style, humor, and cutting to the heart of the matter.
Aside from coaching, Alisa runs workshops on a myriad of business-related topics and is a sought after speaker. Alisa is also a guest lecturer at Harvard and Cornell Universities as well as the Naval War College.
In addition, Alisa is a regular contributor to both Forbes and Inc. Magazines.
On a side note, Carol was really excited to have Alisa on because she and Alisa have been friends since Middle School. Carol has watched Alisa’s career sky- rocket into the stratosphere. Alisa has always been whip smart, and hilarious, but she’s also kind, present and all the things you’d want in a coach or a friend.
For anyone in a leadership role, founder of a startup, or anyone looking to be in these positions some day, pull up a chair and take a listen. Alisa is the best of the best and in this episode, shares some of her hard-earned wisdom.
Who doesn’t love talking about manifesting their dreams? Today our guest is Melisa Caprio.
During a tough point in Melisa’s life, one night just as she was falling asleep, she heard a very clear, loud message in her head: “Postcards to the Universe.” She immediately got up, turned on her computer and bought every domain with that name she could. And then… she didn’t do anything with it for a year.
In true Divine Breadcrumb fashion, new people started coming into Melisa’s life, helping her gain more clarity on what she wanted to do. Sometimes books would literally fall into her lap with information she needed to know!
Melisa is now an author, radio host of Postcards to the Universe, creator of Postcards to the Universe™ A Global Movement for Manifestation as well as a talented photographer.
Melisa’s inspiration comes from a desire to have a forum where people come together in creative ways for global change. She is currently giving workshops on photography, art, transformation, and manifestation.
Melisa’s book, Postcards to the Universe teaches the reader to have an open dialogue with the Universe, get clear on what we really want, and harness their spiritual power.
In this episode, Melisa talks with Deb and Carol about how she helps her clients to accelerate the manifestation process by creating their own unique postcard. She also talks about she manifested her childhood dream to work with dolphins!
In this episode we had the distinct pleasure of talking with filmmaker and producer, Jonas Elrod. You may remember Jonas from his show on the Oprah Winfrey Network, “In Deep Shift,” where each week he followed the stories of people going through deep transformations and spiritual awakenings, how they moved through these experiences and how they came out on the other side.
Jonas directed the documentary, “Wake Up,” which chronicles his spontaneous spiritual awakening during one fateful day when a door in the veil seemed to open, and for 11 hours, he saw auras and spirits and angelic beings (among other things!). The film then goes on to show Jonas’s subsequent quest to learn more about what he experienced. We get to watch as he meets with several spiritual leaders, healers, as well as medical professionals. We also see how this affected his then girlfriend (now wife), Mara.
Fast-forward to 2020. With so many people waking up now, Carol and Deb wanted to talk to Jonas about his take on this and also how to help people navigate these awakenings - including with children.
Join us as we talk with Jonas about this and his plans for the near future. We also get to say hi to his new baby and his wife, Mara!
Who doesn’t love music? It can calm, energize, evoke memories and stir emotions. But did you know it also has an incredible ability to heal?
Our guest today is Bernadette Yao, a certified sound and energy healer, meditation music composer, producer and artist. Bernadette is a classically trained singer and pianist, but she also uses a collection of Himalayan and quartz crystal singing bowls, acoustic guitar, Native American flutes and percussion instruments in her healing practice. Bernadette works through hands-on energy and sound healing techniques combined with spiritual and psychological processes to help create transformative experiences for her clients.
Bernadette has an interesting history. Prior to working in the healing arts she was a classical musical vocalist, recording artist and back up singer for Grammy-Award winner Suzanne Vega. She also toured with the Boston Symphony Orchestra as a soprano chorus member for 10 years.
For all you 70s kids, Bernadette was one of the original cast members of the PBS Children’s show, ZOOM! In the 70s we didn’t have the plethora of children’s shows that exist today, so the ones we did watch have a special place in our memories. Those that watched the show may very well remember Bernadette.
Tune in as Bernadette shares some memories from her days on ZOOM, her love of music and composing, as well as how she became interested in energy, sound, and music healing.

In order to manifest what we want, we have to have the FEELING first. We have to raise our vibration. Today’s guest, Andy Dooley, is a master manifestor and is the creator of Vibration Activation, a program that helps you to crush your limiting beliefs, stop the negative chatter and raise your vibration so that YOU can manifest the things you want to see and experience in your life.
Andy is also the co-founder of TUT.com, is a comedian, author, speaker, YouTuber, and has a unique way of teaching metaphysics through his storytelling. He travels around the world teaching people how to reach their full potential and his new Story Manifesting method is changing lives.
In this episode Andy teaches us several ways to raise our vibration, what a transition story is (and why it’s so important), his biggest lessons from Abraham-Hicks and much more!
If you’ve created vision boards and repeated affirmations and you’re not seeing results, this episode is for you!
Friend of the show, Dr. Michael Lennox is back and we’re talking about all things Astrology!
In this episode, Michael explains why our sun sign doesn’t tell the whole story, the role Astrology can play in our lives, why our mindset is so important, and of course, what the planets have in store for 2020!
According to Dr. Lennox, 2020 is going to be a year of reckoning. It’s a year of change and transformation. But never fear because the mindset we bring to the table in 2020 will determine the outcome of our experience!
We also discuss Venus retrograde and what this can mean for relationships, why Michael jokingly refers to himself as a narcissist, and so much more!
Pull up a chair-this is a fun one!
In this episode we’re doing something a little different. In doing our show for the past year, we’ve realized that certain subjects, although familiar to us, are newer to some of our listeners. We’re all at different points in the spiritual journey and no one gets left behind on our watch!
We’re excited to begin a new series, highlighting various spiritual and metaphysical topics for beginners. First up in our series is Emily Minor who gives us the 411 in the 101 of Chakras.
Emily was a nurse for many years and has a passion for it. But there was always this feeling inside that there was something more to do. About 5 years ago, during a chance meeting with a woman in Walmart, Emily’s life changed forever. We’ll let Emily tell the story, but during that time she had a spiritual awakening that led her to learn all she could about energy healing, meditation, auras, Tarot cards, etc.
Now Emily uses her considerable gift to help others. Deb and Carol had the pleasure of meeting Emily in person and can tell you that she has an amazing energy-just the kind of person you’d want to learn from!
Join us for this interesting and fun chat on our Chakras!

2019 was bumpy for quite a few people. Lots of ups and downs. Maybe things didn’t happen as quickly as you would have liked.
In this episode, Zoe Davenport will be talking about the 2019 and 2020 timelines and things we can do to, not only end 2019 on a high note, but also start 2020 on the right foot!
Zoe is an International Speaker, Visionary Leader, and Multi-Dimensional Channel. She supports people around the world to, as she says “ground in self-love, embody their higher selves and to bridge the gap between humanity and spiritual ascension.”
Zoe was born with extra sensory abilities and has extensively studied self-love, quantum physics and spiritual ascension for the past 10 years.
Her mission is to activate the hearts of visionary leaders to step up, jump into the unknown and reach their unlimited potential through self-love and allowing themselves to be supported and fully receive.
Join Deb and Carol as they talk with Zoe, about channeling, timelines and even Star Seeds!
Ever wonder why you go from job to job searching for the right fit and you still end up feeling unfulfilled and unhappy?
Meet today’s guest, Kristin Sherry, a 4-time author including her acclaimed book, YouMap: Find Yourself. Blaze Your Path. Show the World, which is transforming the way people look for jobs, change careers, or start a business.
Kristin is also an international speaker, trainer and career consultant, and managing partner of YouMap LLC which certifies aspiring coaches, recruiters, career services, and HR professionals as YouMap coaches and YouMap Workshop facilitators.
Kristin worked in the corporate world for over 20 years, and although she liked her various jobs, something always seemed to be missing. In 2014 she met with her mentor and did a values assessment. It was then that she realized that the work she was doing didn’t align with her values. She decided to start her own business.
In this episode, Deb and Carol talk with Kristin about YouMap and how learning our innate strengths, values, motivated skills and what she refers to as “burn-out skills” can help steer us towards a career that provides fulfillment.
We also got a chance to ask Kristin about her new book, Your Team Loves Mondays…Right? which is a must-read for anyone in leadership or someone who wants to be in a leadership role.
Preorder the new book until February 20, 2020

Lyme disease is more prevalent than ever and there’s a lot of misinformation circulating. On top of that, the symptoms of Lyme mimic so many other illnesses, it’s often misdiagnosed.
Carol and Deb had the pleasure of speaking with Cindy Kennedy, a board-certified family nurse practitioner and founder of Pursue Wellness, which offers integrative wellness services and specialty lab testing. She is also the host of the podcast, “Living with Lyme.”
Cindy unknowingly contracted Lyme disease. She never saw a tick or had the tell-tale bulls-eye rash. Her symptoms were subtle at first but then kicked into high gear in 2011. Cindy has spent years learning all she can about Lyme disease—from diagnosis to treatment, and shares it on her website and podcast.
In this episode, find out what the symptoms are and what to do if you think you’ve been exposed to it. We hope you find the episode as informative as we did!
Today we’re talking with the talented and hilarious Joe Gill!
As a child, Joe endured horrible bullying. As an adult he beat cancer and went through 5 layoffs (he jokingly refers to himself as the “Five Time Lay-off Champion.”) Joe could have easily developed a victim’s mentality, but instead he inspires others through his stories and humor.
Currently, Joe is a social media consultant for his agency, Valuencer. He describes himself as part story show-er, part mad scientist and part detective. With these traits and skills he helps his clients solve their social media marketing ROI mystery. Joe explains why bringing value trumps being an “influencer.”
Join Carol and Deb as they talk with Joe about how he used his tough childhood experiences to get through even tougher experiences later in life.
If you’ve had trouble overcoming a tough time in your life, listen to Joe’s story. Not only will he make you laugh, but he’ll make you look at your experiences in a whole new light!
Have you ever wished you knew what your pet was thinking? So have we! In this episode Carol and Deb talk with Stephanie Brown, a woman in the enviable position of being able to communicate with animals.
Stephanie discovered at a young age that she could intuitively tune into people’s feelings and help them to feel better. After she received a degree in Psychology from George Washington University, Stephanie was drawn to alternative health and wellness studies. She is a licensed massage therapist and Reiki Master and has studied under numerous medical intuitives and shamans.
Over the years, Stephanie began to discover her own innate ability to channel healing transmissions from the spirit world and offer energetic gifts during treatments. Today she is able to help animals as well.
Stephanie is able to interpret messages from our pets, to determine behavioral issues and also provide our pets with healing. In her sessions, Stephanie helps to convey information from our pets and also teaches us about how to communicate with them, strengthening the bond between human and animal.
Join Carol and Deb as they chat with Stephanie and listen intently as she communicates with THEIR pets!
Get ready for an incredible ride! This week Deb and Carol talk with renowned psychic and medium, Emalani Malea.
In 2016 Emalani was named one of the top 50 psychic mediums in the US. Emalani is also an intuitive, a hypnotist, and works with Quantum Healing.
What makes Emalani unique is that she is what’s called a vibrational therapist: She is able to move energy as she reads her clients (so imagine how impactful a session with her would be!) Emalani shares tips on how to raise your own vibration.
Also in this episode, Deb and Carol talk to Emalani about how mediumship can help with forgiving loved ones who have passed over and how connecting with passed loved ones can heal your mind and body.
Emalani gave Deb and Carol readings unlike any they had received before. Tune into this week’s episode to find out why!
Happy 1st Birthday TDB! In this special one-year anniversary show, Deb and Carol reminisce about how The Divine Breadcrumb community and podcast got started, lessons learned, and where TDB is headed in 2020.
Deb and Carol knew absolutely nothing about podcasting when they started planning the launch in late July 2018. They spent 3 1/2 months learning everything they could, and when the day came to record their very first episode, well…they were scared to death!
Fast forward one year and they have interviewed award-winning authors, healers, psychics, photographers, artists, DJs and more. Believe it or not, that was something Deb and Carol had listed during a written manifestation exercise in August of 2018—almost 3 months before the podcast launched! It’s amazing how many things have manifested since then!
Join Deb and Carol as they go down memory lane, laughing at the challenges and celebrating how far they’ve come. From taking an online podcasting course in July 2018 to attending a women’s podcasting conference in October 2019, Deb and Carol share their story.
Thank you to all guests and especially to our listeners. We love you all!
Is it possible to communicate with trees, rocks and animals? In this episode Deb and Carol talk with Ana Maria Vasquez who says YES - we absolutely can!
Ana Maria is a multi-sensory animal and nature intuitive who can communicate with animals, trees and even rocks! In this episode, Ana Maria explains that everything is energy vibrating at different frequencies. We simply need to learn how to tune in to those frequencies. According to Ana Maria, this is more practical than we think! She even gives Deb and Carol readings to illustrate this point.
Ana Maria’s spiritual journey really took off after she went through a series of difficult events. In the span of 18 months she lost her job, her home, her relationship and one of her beloved dogs.
Ana Maria is the founder of the online community Intention Training. She offers 1:1 readings, workshops and courses. Her energy is infectious and she couldn’t have been more fun to talk with! We&rsqo;ll never look at rocks in quite the same way!
She also shared a special gift for our listeners. Check out the link below!
Top 5 Ways to Connect with Animals and Nature
Today we are talking with Oleg Lougheed. Oleg has led an extraordinary life. He was born in Russia to parents who were not equipped to take care of him. Because of this, at a very young age he had to find ways to care for himself. When he was 9, his parent’s rights were taken away.
Oleg was sent to a Russian orphanage, which at first seemed like the ideal place. But soon after his arrival, he realized that his new home was not what it appeared to be. He suffered abuse until he was adopted by an American family from Michigan at the age of 12.
Years later he started to document his experience in a blog post and after it was published, he realized that there were many people who had similar stories.
Oleg is a Tedx speaker and the founder of the non-profit organization, Overcoming Odds, a community for people who have experienced a similar path, encouraging them to share their unique stories. His journey has taught him, among other things, resilience and he shares his message through his podcast, speaking engagements and workshops, helping people to be resilient in their own lives.
Join Deb and Carol as they talk with Oleg about his incredible journey and the strength of the human spirit.
Today we’re talking with Montse Azaguirre. Montse is the founder of Mindful Living, and as the name would suggest, is an expert in mindfulness. It all started when she experienced post natal anxiety. During this time she turned to meditation and mindfulness and it was life-changing.
Now Montse works to help others realize the power of mindfulness in their own lives. Through her 1 on 1 coaching and corporate coaching, her Rogue Mindz online magazine as well as her YouTube channel, Montse helps to bring about peace and happiness in our personal and professional lives.
Montse believes that we don’t have to suffer in order to be a great artist, a great parent, have a great business or whatever it is we’re trying to achieve.
In this episode, Deb and Carol talk with Montse about humanity “waking up,” tuning into the energy of our passed loved ones, reincarnation, bringing mindfulness into the workplace, the definition of a “rogue mind” and much more!
Montse also shares some of her favorite tips to be more mindful in your own life.
In this episode, we’re talking about an important topic: mental health. Our guest is Amanda Phillips. We’re all aware that there’s a stigma when it comes to mental illnesses and Amanda works tirelessly to educate people on this topic. Through her coaching, blogs and speaking engagements, Amanda’s mission is to raise awareness and get people talking.
After the death of a college friend, Amanda, a super-high achiever, went into a downward spiral which lead to severe depression and suicidal thoughts. During her journey back to health she encountered prejudice towards her mental illness from the very people she expected to support her. After experiencing the stigma of mental illness first-hand, Amanda changed her professional focus and now dedicates her life to helping the many people who suffer in silence.
Totally unplanned, and in true Divine Breadcrumb fashion, we realized as we were recording that it was World Suicide Prevention Day. For anyone struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts, or you know someone who is, we invite you to listen and learn. You are not alone!
In this informative episode we are talking with Missy Cohen, owner of the Just Breathe Salt Room in Westborough, MA. Missy is also a Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, working with her clients using functional medicine principles and other holistic healing modalities.
Like many people, Missy’s journey to holistic healing came about after encountering frustration with Western medicine. She was diagnosed with fibroids and was told that she needed surgery. Feeling that was not the route for her, she got a second opinion from a functional medicine doctor. With the care of her new doctor and a health and wellness coach, Missy eventually found that her fibroids had vanished.
Join Deb and Carol as they talk with Missy about the functional approach to medicine, energy healing, the benefits of salt therapy, and of course, Divine Breadcrumb moments!

Today’s guest hails from across the pond! Deb and Carol are talking with Nicola Buckley. Nicola is the host of the popular podcast StrongHER where she helps women to slow down, know and love themselves and live more fully.
In this episode, Nicola talks about why people are so hard on themselves, changing the stories that no longer serve us, why the brain is like “velcro for negativity and teflon for positivity” and the pivotal moment in life that she refers to as the F#$%-it moment (what we would call a huge Divine Breadcrumb!).
Nicola truly believes we are not broken. We have all the answers we need. But sometimes we need help seeing that we are enough and Nicola excels in this area. Nicola provides workshops, group coaching and one on one coaching.
Nicola has so much to offer the world and her wisdom, compassion, humor and strength shine through!

In this special episode, Carol and Deb talk with Karen Laine, the Mom half of the dynamic duo on HGTV’s Good Bones, where she and her daughter renovate houses and work tirelessly to revitalize their beloved Indianapolis neighborhoods.

In this very special 9/11 edition of The Divine Breadcrumb, Deb and Carol welcome back Wendy Taylor. As you may recall, Wendy is the founder of the West Place Animal Sanctuary, where she and her team of hundreds of volunteers give neglected, abandoned and abused animals a save haven (and lots of love!).
But years before West Place was a glint in Wendy’s eye, Wendy had an experience on 9/11 that was frightening, moving, and life-altering.
On September 11, 2001, Wendy was leaving early from a vacation in Italy. She didn’t want to leave, but she was getting pressure from work that she was needed back in the office. The series of events that happened next…well let’s just say, you can’t make this up. Wendy’s story got a ton of press at the time. But as you will hear, the story is timeless.
Please join Deb and Carol as they talk with Wendy about an experience that caused her to see friendship, selflessness and hope on a whole new level.
Carol and Deb had the distinct pleasure of talking with Dr. Michael Lennox, a psychologist and world-renowned dream expert, interpreting thousands of dreams through his workshops, media and one-on-one sessions with his private and corporate clientele.
Dr. Lennox is the author of Dream Sight: A Dictionary and Guide for Interpreting Any Dream, Llewellyn’s Little Book of Dreams and Llewellyn’s Complete Dictionary of Dreams all which help people understand their dreams by helping them to navigate the symbolism and universal meanings in a dream.
Who hasn’t wondered the meaning of a dream? We talk with Dr. Lennox about how to interpret your own dreams as well as the universal meanings behind some of the most common dreams (including snakes and bathroom dreams!)
Also in this episode, Dr. Lennox takes questions submitted by our very own TDB tribe!
Join us for a fun and fascinating conversation!
Today Deb and Carol are joined by Karen Hutton, renowned international landscape and travel photographer, speaker, voice-over artist, teacher, athlete and story-teller.
Karen looks at her photography, art and life through the lens of "awe." She teaches her students to work in this state as well as it transports you to a divine part of yourself.
We chat about so many topics in this conversation: living in awe, cross-training in life, Karen’s near-death experience and why artistic voice matters. Karen’s stories and sense of humor are entertaining and inspiring. Join us!.

In this episode, Deb and Carol had the pleasure of talking with Debbie Jodoin, owner of Oils of Eden Wellness Techniques where she uses essential oils to address a myriad of health issues.
Debbie explains that each oil has a different frequency and different oils can be used to detoxify different parts of the body. In her practice, Debbie creates a stress-free atmosphere where clients can learn about the effectiveness of therapeutic grade essential oils and how they can be effective through this specific detoxification bodywork.
When Debbie was in her 20s, she was diagnosed with a debilitating chronic digestive illness. At the time she was a young wife and mother, so when traditional healing methods didn’t help, she went on a quest to find answers for herself. It was then that she happened upon the book Patient Heal Thyself by Jordan Rubin and it changed the trajectory of her life. She learned something that already resonated deep inside her: The physical body and the spirit are parts of the same whole.
Join us as we talk with Debbie about the healing properties of essential oils and their many uses!
