It's a topic we discussed on season one with the Spiritual Doula Ms. Anjie Hosley.  A topic we've discussed with classical-crossover recording artist Jason Antone.  But today I do some solo reflection on why I personally have not quite gotten this concept in my own life.  I remind myself (and you the listener) of the importance of boundaries as necessary of preserving one's energy and experiencing a greater degree of self love.  I also feature a song about self worth from the album Imagine Paradise called Taking Back My Boogie.Support the show

Recovering addicts here in San Francisco will tell you first hand there is a direct correlation between homelessness and substance abuse.   Local ex-homeless/ex-addicts will attest that 8 out of every 10 people on the street are struggling with addiction.  Over 75% of unsheltered have a drug or alcohol addiction and a similar number have a severe mental health disorder. So why are we constantly marketed the idea that this is primarily a poverty problem and housing is the solution?  You can build all the housing in the world and get homeless off the street so you don’t have to look at us, but if we are struggling with drug addiction and mental illness, we're just housed dealing with drug addiction and mental illness.  In 2020, the death rate among San Francisco homeless doubled.  They condone this behavior and even help promote it with harm reduction policies that blur the line between harm reduction and drug promotion.  Caroline Shores Thrush is back and we’re giving you a recovering addict’s perspective on the “compassionate” policies she witnessed while working in the non-profit sector with transitional housing here in San Francisco.  Support the show

Focused on the liberating nature of letting your guard down and just being yourself, Anyway You Wanna was a song written for our LGBTQ+ youth to inspire and encourage them to know self-love on the deepest possible level.  But the message of valuing who we are is not just for the young, for many of us still carry deep wounds that linger still from a long arduous journey of coming out.  This episode not only tells the backstory of how the song came to be, but seeks to move us from pain into power.  Support the show

Now I Know My Power

This episode is a great review of the four stages of spiritual awareness that I've referenced in previous podcasts.  I use my song Man Outta Me to transport me back to a time in my life where the journey from victim to victor was new and unfamiliar to me.  This conversation will remind you of your spiritual identity and the power that is inherently within you as a Divine expression of Infinite Potentiality.  Support the show (http://Patreon.com/LeviKreis)
Forgiveness is not easy to come by sometimes, but nine times outta ten we are the ones that are still suffering - not them.  We are the only ones hurting by holding on to it.  Sometimes all the universe needs to hear is that little whisper from us that says "I am willing".  Just asking the universe to show us what we need to let go of - to show us who we need to become in order to forgive - it sets things in motion.  In this episode, I discuss the experience that informed my song Left Over and encourage all of us to lay claim to our own personal freedom through the power of forgiveness.  Support the show
Love In Another Light

Love In Another Light

Did you know that those of us who are prone to addiction are a special little breed with a natural inclination towards spiritual transcendence?  The problem is that we are seeking that transcendental experience through false substitutes.  When we realize that spirituality is the door to that transcendence, something clicks for us and we find a profound power.  If we daily invest in a spiritual solution, life can be a daily high that only Spirit can provide.  In this episode, I use my song Love In Another Light from my debut album One Of The Ones to tell my own journey from addiction to recovery.Support the show (http://Patreon.com/LeviKreis)
Emotions are our internal guidance system.  They are to be observed and evaluated, but not necessarily absorbed as our identity.  Becoming the observer of our emotions creates a healthy distance between feeling and "being" that feeling.  "I am angry" vs "I have anger" is notably different vibration.  Instead of identifying with every rush of emotion we have, it is possible to become the thoughtful observer of our feelings and follow them down to the fundamental belief that is supporting that feeling.  In this episode, discussion is inspired by my song I Should Go from my debut album One Of The Ones.  Support the show (http://Patreon.com/LeviKreis)
