This is not your Nana's praybook. Have you given up on prayer? Does it feel like God ignores you? Have you stopped believing in God? Could it be that you aren't broken, you have just been using the wrong tools or the right tools ineffectively?
Brandon Kneefel breaks down myths about what prayer is and explains how to do it most effectively. "Defining Moments" is all about standing in the light of the Spirit when it matters most, offering prayers around relationships and work, to dealing with finances or grief.
Brandon Kneefel is a Certified Spiritual Counselor and Practitioner with Inspire Spiritual Communities who draws upon his experiences from homelessness and addiction, to coming out and even his time on reality TV to offer tools and examples on how to use the words of prayer to redirect your life.
Prayer is practical when you know that thoughts inform your feelings and feelings inform your actions, and prayer alters those root thoughts. Brandon believes that we have inside of us all we need to realize our dreams and to live beautiful, loving and powerful lives. The sun can come out at any time, the light can burst forth and your reality can be altered dramatically, all you have to do is turn inward and open your eyes to the truth of who you are.
As two highly successful PT’s, business owners, investors and parents. We asked ourselves the question why is it that 80% of people don’t achieve their goals? The answer we found lies somewhere between the mind and body connection. We spent the last decade and hundreds of thousands of dollars finding out how to do this for ourselves first. We LOVE what we found! So, we have simplified the foundations and put it into three easy to follow Lessons.
Lesson 1 will give you some quick fixes to give you a little bit of breathing room, designed to take the edge off your stress.
Lesson 2 will go deeper into some lifestyle changes necessary to effectively handle high amounts of stress.
Lesson 3 will go deeper into internal stresses, the ‘why’ of your personal stress.
The Calling is a spiritual adventure. It is an encounter with the truth, the wisdom and the force that is innate to us all. At the brink of a divorce and personal breakdown, Arjun took a trip into the heart of the Himalayas, on the insistence of a sadhu, who predicted that the journey up to Hemkund Sahib would align him to his purpose and change his life forever. At every turn the mountains holds secrets and tests that urge Arjun to evolve into the person he had denied to be - himself. Pretenses, falsities, confusions and untruths fall apart as Arjun is forced to confront the mess he had created in his life. What started off as an opportunity to escape reality, turned out to be an opportunity to escape from the dwindling spiral of self-created misery. Filled with spiritual insights and sprinkled with light humor, this story will help you find your calling, your voice and who knows, even your true self.
