AIRED LIVE JANUARY 14th
This week, my guest Allan Flood tells us about how his world was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1986. In the years following his diagnosis, Allan embarked on a journey to find peace, and ended up devoting his life to understanding the healing resources of himself and others.

His recently released book, “Perfect Misfortune – The 2010 Edition”, was rewritten and updated from the original book first published in 1999. This new edition features all of the same inspiration as the first book, along with additional insights and knowledge about the mental and spriritual strength it takes to heal.

Allan has recovered sensation in much of his body and has been free of new symptoms for several years. He continues to enjoy an active lifestyle.

Lynne Klippel, author of Overcomers Inc  and I talk about true stories of hope, inspiration and courage from her book.  We all have days when we'd rather just stay under the covers, and then we have days we wish we weren't born at all.  No matter what the circumstances, it helps to know that others have made it through similar tough times and come out the other side.

What happens when you help someone with no other motive than to lend a hand? You feel it.  And it feels like something in alignment with that better part of yourself.

Bryan Douglas just helped. He drove 5,000 miles to Chicago and back to deliver a car battery and didn't stop there. He also wrote a book and maybe started a movement.  We talk about what he learned.

Byron Katie has one job: to teach people how to stop suffering. When Katie appears, lives change.

In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year fall into depression, anger, and addiction, Byron Katie woke up one morning and realized that all suffering comes from believing our thoughts. Questioning every painful thought she had, she developed an amazing method of inquiry she called The Work.

The Work asks four simple questions that turn stressful thoughts around. When you Work with a thought, you see around it to the choices beyond suffering.

Katie has been bringing The Work to millions around the world for more than twenty years. Her free public events, weekend workshops, nine-day School for the Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House bring liberation to people everywhere.

Her School for the Work takes place twice a year.
Call 1 800 98 KATIE (52843 or go to www.thework.com for more information

P.S. to really get the most of the this hour live with Katie, I do recommend downloading and doing the Judge Your Neighbor Worksheet from Katie's site.
