Episode 21: Energy, Tantra, and Awakening with Julie Jancius


PODCAST_Angels_Awakening.webp

Welcome Julie Jancius to the show! Julie noticed she could communicate with the Other Side as she was mundanely brushing through her daughter’s hair, and her deceased father’s voice rang clear through her mind. He had a message for her! Far from being a one-off, she now honed her gift and brings through messages for people having a hard time on this planet from the Other Side, where passed relatives, friends, and angels give their advice from this higher vibration. She explains clearly how this happens in our episode together.

This has me wondering… is the Other Side completely omniscient? Or do they know more than we know about ourselves, simply because they are no longer “people like us” but “transformed energy” that operates on a level that knows energy, love, and wisdom with ease?

Aside from the Other Side, we share our knowledge on energy, both within and without the physical body… dive into the true meaning of Tantra and Kundalini… and share our personal awakening stories that may resonate with yours.

If you have an awakening story to share, please email curiousbodhi@zoho.com so we can get you on the show!

Episode 17: Hinduism is not a Religion: Perspective with Karthik


IMG_2932

In this episode, I talk with Karthik, a native Indian who now lives in London. He believes that Hinduism is not a religion; it is more of a lifestyle, where one really chooses who and what to worship or not at all.

Hindus obtained their name from the River Indus, denoting a group of people who lived around the area. The Greeks actually gave this name to the Indians living there, and ever since, more and more people referred to these guys as “Hindus” and even called India “Hindustan” for a while. The name stuck.

I ask Karthik about this, and he agrees with me that “India is still proud to be the ‘Land of the Hindus'”.

Karthik comes from the state of Tamil Nadu: the city is Madurai, nicknamed the City of Temples and the Athens of the East. His family also studied the Tirukkuṛaḷa book considered one of the greatest works in ethics and morality, known for its non-secular nature; yet many are unfamiliar with the text in the wider world. He also tells us the way his family personally practices Hinduism and some magical stories about some of the gods; but the gods are not what Hinduism is really all about. You have to listen to our podcast to be let in on the secret.

Here’s one hint, though: there’s a saying in India, “First honour your mother… then your father… then your guru… then God.”

Episode 11: Interview with Hans Wilhelm on our Pre-birth Plan and Reincarnation


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hans Wilhelm is an author and illustrator who has been on the spiritual path for upwards of 50 years. The story of how he came to be able to use his authorship to help so many people is quite astounding, and you can read it all here on LIFEexplained.com. After his father’s passing, he happened on a chance meeting with somebody who knew details about his father that Hans could not ignore… so he began his art form.

Hans has a way of simplifying the most intriguing spiritual questions our minds yearn for:

Who are we, in these bodies, on this planet?

Why do we incarnate and reincarnate? How about karma?

What is the deal with intimate relationships and people in general?

Thousands of books explain the same basic truths in many ways, but human beings tend to complicate things by bending backwards and doing somersaults over the vast knowledge available to us — in the Vedas, in the Buddhist sutras, and even in the books lining our shelves on ‘mindfulness’ and ‘meditation’. Any great spiritual teacher will bring a seeker straight to the answers in the quickest and most efficient way possible. Otherwise, what is the point of whirling around endlessly with thousands of scriptures, terms, texts, rituals, practices, and koans?

A great master has no student. It is the divine meeting with the divine, showing the divine to its Self — that which it has been searching for all this time.

It is a great honour to present Hans’ explanations on why we incarnate on planet earth, so relax and enjoy!

Episode 7: Interview with artist Demi on Italian Politics and Ego Death


demi

This is a self-portrait of artist Demi, whose works and website you can find here. He is inspired by the moon, which is a symbol of stillness in the chaos and is a grounding principle in his meditation sessions. He also paints abstract and wild portrayals of the female, geometry, and nature.

In our episode, I want to ask who he is as a person, an artist, and a non-dual creature. We never know how the conversation will flow, yet he delves straight into the fascism happening in Italy right now… he left Italy to set up a better life for him and his daughter in a mission to express himself creatively in London.

Artist-to-artist, we know how challenging it is to be able to paint in an environment that’s constantly in flux with the same hem-and-haw of change that every city goes through: destruction and creation, especially concerning the unrelenting property-development of our artistic community in Hackney. Just as the seasons change, so does the community but to a less predictable degree. (And it frustrates the hell out of us, sometimes!)

Concerning our spiritual nature, which Demi avidly explores, he is a constantly playing with material reality and is ultra-curious on how this whole paradigm operates on a macro and micro level. Experimentation with plant medicines, which we go into in the episode, has been part of his search for truth, expansion, and the divine. He will not stop until he reaches the final frontier and is no stranger to the yin-yang of passing through darkness and light, as we all have to on this planet earth.

Enjoy, and it was a pleasure! Don’t forget to email me at curiousbodhi@zoho.com to be featured and meet, human-to-human and spirit-to-spirit.

Episode 5 – Interview with Tattooist Jeffrey Segundo on Following Instincts


image00028Tattoo Art by Jeffrey Segundo

As the birds chirp in the backdrop to this episode, I speak to Jeffrey Segundo straight from Melbourne, Australia where we have an organic conversation about his humanness and spirituality.

We met when he made the decision to do a guest spot at our tattoo studio, Fifth Dimension Tattoo & Piercing in London. Jeff really inspired us with his positive attitude and the willingness to be open to any situation that stood before him — he’s such a natural character, and it’s such a blessing to be able to have met and keep in touch with him! He gives “going with the flow” a new name.

All artists have the gift of taking the mundane and making it more precious, more beautiful. This is exactly what Jeff does with his tattoo art form, as he’s been practicing for the past eight years, and he also does so with his gratitude for life. You can connect with Jeff at @juxtagram on Instagram.

Enjoy listening with us in this podcast, and please be in touch at curiousbodhi@zoho.com if you have a story about your own spiritual awakening.
