Ray Of Hope World Kindness Day Video Premiere With Award Winning Musician Alika Hope Episode #52



The current political energy across the globe is feelings rather polarized and divided in so many ways. As we watch our social media feeds each day it can be difficult to find a ray of hope amongst the darkness. To find a way to bridge our divide and use social media for good. To let people know we are there for each other emotionally and virtually.

FEEL THE MUSIC, CHANGE THE WORLD…

That is the message of The Ray of Hope Project started by my guest today, award winning musician, Alika Hope.  She had the goal of using African American spirituals to shed light on the combined anti-slavery efforts of blacks and whites in 19th century New England and now includes nine musicians and actors who incorporate African American spirituals with live music in their participatory programs.

Ray of Hope Project’s newest production, music video “IRL” is a video focusing on the importance of kindness on social media. It will premiere on various social media channels on World Kindness Day, November 13.


Hearing With My Heart: Justin Osmond May Have A Hearing Loss, But That Hearing Loss Does Not Have Him



I have a bone to pick with the people out there who feel the need to spread their negative beliefs onto  others. Stop it. Your philosophy is tired and the human soul is energized and has proven time and time again, that you’re wrong. It’s time for us to silence the naysayers and listen to what we know to be true in our hearts, that people are incredible and to prove it all they need is a little hope.

My guest today has led an extraordinary life. Justin Osmond was born with 90% hearing loss. That is hard for anyone, but being the son of Merrill Osmond, the lead singer of the world-renowned Osmond Family, made deafness and even bigger challenge.

After 12 years of intense speech and listening therapy, he can now speak with passion and through modern-day technology, hear with conviction.

I am honoured to have him on the show and to continue to spread his incredible message. I think we could all learn a thing or two from Justin’s life experience.

I HAVE TODAY: Redefining possible with Diane Forster, Inventor & Empowerment Coach



I have had the privilege of working with some incredible people in my career, people who are inspired to make this world a better place. Many of those people are women. Doctors, Inventors, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Scientists, Astronauts, Writers these are just a few of the professions these women belong to. Yet, not matter how many women I meet who have worked hard to be in these leadership roles, I meet just as many women who believe they could never hold these positions. In the 21st Century why is it still so difficult for women to believe they are valued and that they deserve success? How can we lift each other up to redefine possible?

Rob Nash Saves The Lives Of Hundreds Of Youth With His Music & Tattoos Their Names On His Arm



Robb was the victim of a serious auto accident, a head on collision with a semi truck. He was found with a fractured skull and pronounced dead by first responders. But by the time the ambulance had arrived at the scene to take his body to the hospital, Robb’s pulse had miraculously returned. After a difficult recovery, and despite significant physical and emotional scars, Robb was left with a new outlook on life.

He started a band as a way to leverage the power of music to share his philosophy, and soon had songs in the Canadian Top 10. Robb saw musical success as a platform from which to influence and motivate young people. He put aside performing to large audiences, and began speaking to youth in their schools across the country, playing his songs and sharing their meaning with his young audiences.

Robb and his band bring their presentation to more than 200 schools each year, and have reached over 1 million students to date through school shows and social media. He walks head on into difficult topics, knowing that these are the things on young people’s minds; bullying, addiction, self harm and suicide.

Giant Rock: Chad Meek Was Abducted By Aliens & He Wants To Share Their Message



I have always been interested in the topic of Aliens and if we have ever been visited by these other worldly creatures. When I had the opportunity to interview Chad C. Meek, who’s family was instrumental in the 1950’s U.F.O movement, I was interested in finding out more about his experiences.

Chad is the nephew of George Van Tassel  the famous alien contactee who held the first ongoing spacecraft conventions in the high desert at a place called Giant Rock, and who also coined the term “channeling” to distinquish this form of communication from that used by spirit mediums.

I never expected to find out in our interview that my son’s vision of heaven was the vision that Chad had in a near death experience. Having never heard of that particular vision before you can only imagine my shock to find out that Chad had captured my son’s vision in his book. Do you believe in Aliens or life after death? If so, you will love this interview!
