Have you ever wondered where insecurity comes from? In a spiritual sense, the source lies in a fundamental misconception: the belief that our gifts and talents are solely the result of our own merit. Tune in for an insightful episode as we discuss how recognizing ourselves as conduits rather than owners of our talents can lead to a more fulfilled and confident life."A window doesn’t bring the light in; it allows the sun to shine through it into the room. In the same way, we are conduits for the Creator’s Light." – Michael Berg
We can encounter narcissists in the workplace, in social settings, and in family structures. These relationships can be devastatingly toxic. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we discuss how to spot and set boundaries with the narcissists in our lives to maintain our well-being.“Just because somebody has fantastical visions of the world doesn’t mean they know how to treat a human being… At the end of the day, when you are making a decision for yourself, you have to pay attention to whether you feel safe, seen, and heard in their presence.” – Dr. Ramani DurvasulaFurther Readings:Should I Stay or Should I Go: Surviving A Relationship with a Narcissist, by Dr. Ramani Durvasula“Don’t You Know Who I Am?”: How to Stay Sane in an Era of Narcissism, Entitlement, and Incivility, by Dr. Ramani Durvasula
With so much information available to us every day, it can be difficult to tune into the most important messages: those that come straight from the Creator. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we discuss the four levels of intuition and how to distinguish between each divine message we receive.“The reality is that for every step you take, there is a message… It’s about opening up our mind and consciousness to the fact that not only is the universe conspiring for our benefit and the messages are coming all of the time, it’s also a necessary part of our development as human beings.” – Michael Berg
We know that our souls have come to this life to heal and find meaning. And one of the ways we can help our souls along is by knowing where our souls are on that journey over lifetimes. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we speak with past-life psychic, Ainslie MacLeod about the evolution of our individual souls and personalities.“We all come with a life plan… it’s not carved in stone, and it’s not massively detailed. It’s a broad outline. It includes things like, your location, the place of your birth, the places you want to visit, the people you want to interact with, experiences that you want to have, fears that you want to overcome, and challenges or work you need to do.” – Ainslie MacLeodFurther Readings:The Transformation, by Ainslie MacLeodThe Old Soul’s Guidebook, by Ainslie MacLeod
Get ready to rethink everything you think you know about relationships. In this live-recorded episode of Spiritually Hungry, we discuss four ways to grow with your partner and strengthen your bond so you can reconnect and change together.“The strongest relationships are when two people are committed to changing together.” – Monica Berg
Our daily rituals are the building blocks of our lives. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we continue our discussion about living each day in alignment with our values so we can strengthen our spiritual practice and connect more deeply to the Light of the Creator. “These tools are about creating a shift of consciousness, creating a state of existence where you feel in flow all of the time. That’s the power of what we are sharing today.” – Monica Berg
Obligations and to-do lists can easily pull us away from the things that are most important to us. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we discuss how to live each day with integrity so we can avoid the unnecessary busyness of life and live in alignment with our values.“The only way to possibly begin inching towards the greatness we all have potential for is by first doing the things that safeguard ourselves from the consciousness of the world and from the busyness of life.” – Michael Berg
The idea of radical change can evoke great fear. But change is inevitable and can lead to tremendous personal growth. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, Lisa Bilyeu shares how she cultivated radical confidence despite fear, and completely restructured her life for deeper success and fulfillment.“Fear can actually hold you back or it can propel you forward. That’s how I think about life now. I pause and go, ‘Is this leading you towards your goal or away from your goal?’ If it leads me away from my goal, I won’t do it. If it leads me toward my goal, I better figure it out.” – Lisa BilyeuFurther Readings:Radical Confidence, by Lisa Bilyeu
From the day we are born, we receive messages about who we should be and what choices we should make. But this is seldom aligned with our true nature. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, guest Jenna Zoe illuminates Human Design, a tool that can help us work with our innate energy and gifts to live a fulfilling and centered life. “It’s about coming back to who you already were before the world told you how to be.” - Jenna Zoe
In this part II discussion of Spiritually Hungry episode #168, we delve deeper into the connection between desire and true fulfillment. Listen as we continue our conversation about tuning into core desires in the pursuit of lasting happiness. “Fulfillment comes from being as similar as possible to the force that permeates everything—what we call the endless Light of the Creator.” - Michael Berg
We all want to be healthy, but what happens if we go too far in our quest for wellness? True wellbeing comes from an alignment of the mind, body, and soul. Tune in as we welcome Jordan Younger, creator of The Balanced Blonde podcast, to discuss the importance of growing our intuition and maintaining balance in our approach to well-being. “I learned how to give myself grace as I go through my wellness journey, and now I truly feel like I live a healthy life.” – Jordan YoungerFurther Readings:Breaking Vegan: One Woman's Journey from Veganism, Extreme Dieting, and Orthorexia to a More Balanced Life by Jordan Younger
We came into this world to reveal Light for the benefit of others. But how well are our daily actions aligned with this higher purpose? Join us for an episode of Spiritually Hungry that delves into the nuances of living out your true potential every single day.“If you really direct your life towards the pursuit of revealing your soul’s potential, there are less things that upset you and less things that distract you.” – Michael Berg
Liel Shitrit and Shoham Cohen survived the Hamas attack at the Nova Music Festival in Israel on October 7th. They now travel the world to share their story of resilience, love, and Light with others. Join us for a very special conversation about their experience and the miracles they now find in everyday moments. Content warning: This episode contains depictions of graphic violence that some may find disturbing. Listener discretion is advised.“I think connections are more important to me than money and work. I wake up every day and just smile because I woke up.” – Liel Shitrit
How can mindfulness improve our mind and body wellness? And how do our thoughts impact the body? In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we speak with Dr. Ellen Langer to learn what four decades of mindfulness research has taught her about the relationship between mental attitude and physical health.“If we see mind and body as a single unit, then wherever you’re putting the mind, you’re necessarily putting the body, which gives us enormous control over our health.” – Dr. Langer Further Readings:The Mindful Body: Thinking Our Way to Chronic Health, by Ellen J.

Some of our most important relationships are also the most complicated. But all is not lost. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, listen as we discuss how to start difficult conversations that can guide you on the path to repairing a rift between you and your loved one.“The most powerful way to change is through relationships. The reason we want to have relationships is not because of what they give us, but because of the opportunities they bring us to change, to grow, and to give.” – Michael Berg
Over 17 million people in the United States experience the effects of PTSD. And many more of us will experience traumatic events in the future. Processing the traumatic event is essential for us to heal—body, mind, and soul. In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we discuss how to identify our own trauma and begin that journey so we can live securely without fear.“We are not taught what to do with negative feelings, especially the deepest wounds. It can seem counterintuitive to recount trauma in vivid detail, but that is a powerful tool in releasing trauma.” – Monica BergFurther Readings:The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk
Emotional intelligence is understanding your inner world in great detail—seeing how experiences have shaped you as a person. But how do we increase this kind of awareness? In this episode, learn how to cultivate emotional IQ and strengthen your relationship with yourself and others.“You are the sum of your past. Learn to love you and understand you. Become intelligent there. From that strength, you can learn to love others.” – Monica Berg
When we don’t know which path to take, we sometimes look for signs from the universe: directions telling us which way to go. The truth is, there are signs everywhere, all of the time! In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, we discuss how to spot messages from the Creator in our everyday lives. “In order for us to live the life we are meant to live, with the blessings we are meant to have, we have to be constantly desiring and open to these messages. They are a map from the Creative Force of the Universe directing us to the right place.” – Michael Berg
Our ancestors pass down more than physical traits or family stories. We can also inherit traumatic experiences that can impact us in ways we are not even conscious of. In this episode, we discuss generational trauma and how to turn challenging experiences in our family’s history into opportunities for deep personal growth.“It is very important to look back on the challenges that come to us from our generational trauma. It’s also very important to look at the positive things that are within us because of our ancestors and use them as an inspiration for what we can do with our lives.” – Michael Berg
Our society upholds truth as a virtue, but as we strive to do the right thing in each moment, the question remains: is it ever okay to lie? In this episode of Spiritually Hungry, join us as we discuss the real truth when it comes to the lies we tell every day.“Before you choose to tell the truth, think of yourself as the other person. If you do not, you are probably going to do more damage in your truth-telling than any benefit you are hoping to have.” – Michael Berg
