Why People Heal with Bonnie Schroeder

Why People Heal with Bonnie Schroeder

Why do some people heal, while others don’t? Why are some of us content with just a little, while others can never be satisfied, no matter how much they get out of life?

My guest today on Let’s Connect is someone I fondly call my ginger sister, Bonnie Schroeder, a healing practitioner who has traveled five continents over three decades working as a clinical researcher, in medical management, and doing energy work that merges science and spirit.

Through this drawn-out pandemic, are you longing for a better moment than this one?

Bonnie invites us to start small, taking baby steps towards ourselves with curiosity and heartfulness. Her deep call is to provide healing energy medicine, and how she works her magic is a little hard to pin down in words, but I have been through the energy work she offers and it is transformative.

Resolve to be kind to yourself, starting today. Enjoy some music in this episode.

And some more good news - the Making Sense of Mindfulness course has just been re-launched, and my personal gift to you is a free video workshop on stress and anxiety. Information on these offerings - and much more - can be found on my website,

Bonnie is going to remind us now that our first relationship is with ourselves. Isn’t that a good way to look forward to 2021?

Keith Macpherson on How to go Inward

Keith Macpherson on How to go Inward

We’re living in a time where it’s becoming more and more difficult to discern what’s real and what’s a racket.

The social networking systems we’re being informed by are feeding us a steady stream of content that complex algorithms have decided is what we’re craving. Perhaps most concerning is that so many of us are just going along largely unaware of the forces of manipulation that are competing for our headspace.

So, how can we breathe, get still, observe, and be aware of the truth? What are the secrets waiting to be revealed to us when we go inward? And how do we even do that?

With all that we’re witnessing right now in an unstable world, I’m ready to put the brakes on this roller coaster.

I welcome you to join me now on Let’s Connect to share in a transformative reality check.

A better reality really does exist above all the noise and chaos.

Keith Macpherson on Let It Go and Let It Go

Keith Macpherson on Let It Go and Let It Go

As I sat down to record this particular episode of the podcast, I had a major internal battle with myself. I was trying to be “perfect” and appear to have things all together, when inside of me, something just didn’t feel right!

After 24 hours of struggling to get this podcast recorded, I finally came to understand what this inner battle was all about! I was distracted and preoccupied with all the noise around me (including my phone buzzing, my to-do list, and many of the habits that have unconsciously crept into my life over the past few months). I realized that I had lost touch with my inner spirit.

In our world, there is so much emphasis on delivering results that we often lose focus of other important things that equally matter; our physical, mental, and emotional health. And in the process of getting to the end result, we can develop deteriorating habits that negatively impact not only our peace of mind but more significantly, our own productivity. How do we counter this? How do we let go to find space and foster a perspective of living mindfully?

In this episode, I vulnerably share my own struggle with striving for perfection and offer some newfound tips that I am also integrating into my own daily life.

When we sit down with ourselves, take a deep breath, and really open our minds; we find the space and ease that we need in order to get to the end result that we want.

Join me as I sift through helpful tips to live life mindfully, and talk about negative habits to watch out for! In this episode of Let’s Connect; slow down, create space, and achieve freedom in a bustling world.

Dr. Paul Hokemeyer on Mental Health

Dr. Paul Hokemeyer on Mental Health

Mental health is now a subject of open discussion, a dramatic change in the perception of what used to be an extremely sensitive topic.

I have always been interested in the subject, especially as I learn to take care of my own mental health through meditation.

In this episode, my goal is to find out as much as I can about mental health; especially the demographics.

Here’s the important question: who is most likely to get depressed?

According to an article on, individuals belonging to high-income groups are more likely to suffer from depression and anxiety.

To gain a deep and meaningful insight into mental illness, I invited Dr. Paul Hokemeyer, a psychotherapist who works with people and families in the United States, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, and the European Union. He holds a doctorate in law, a Bachelor of Arts in economics, and a Master of Arts in clinical psychology with a focus on family dynamics.

Dr. Paul’s work revolves around people who go through a silent but deadly crisis characterized by trauma, substance-abuse disorders, addiction, physical and emotional infidelity, personality disorders, and gender dysphoria.

Strangely, most of his patients are either famous or wealthy. In fact, more often than not, they are both.

Dr. Paul believes that there are an ingrained hostility and resentment towards the upper class. After all, they should have what it takes to be happy and healthy. Little do we know that their wealth is a blessing as much as it is a curse. It would appear that the underlying cause of a lack of access to proper mental health care lies in wealth itself.

In fact, a counterproductive means of dealing with modern-day loneliness and depression is to invest in extravagant quantitative aspects of life, like fame, money, and validation, if only to achieve a sense of security.

Dr. Paul advances a whole new different perspective on the demographics of depression: rich people can have it, too. In his emphatic words, every human being deserves culturally competent care. No matter who you are.

Check out his book about this topic, Fragile Power, on Amazon!  link here.

Keith Macpherson on Gratitude

Keith Macpherson on Gratitude

How will you practice gratitude if you are facing a $30,000 house repair?

This was Keith Macpherson’s personal experience when he was challenged to practice gratitude in his most challenging times, just like facing a $30,000 bill to repair his house in Canada.

Keith lives in Winnipeg, Canada, and it's quite common for houses in Canada that shift foundations because the city was built on a waterbed system.

Despite this, he calls himself lucky to have a moving house.

Keith is a wide range reader, and the book by Florence Scovel Shinn about gratitude changed his perspective in life.

Florence says, “Gratitude is the law of increase, and the complaint is the law of decrease.”

And in the $30,000 bill that he’s facing for the repair, he sees it as a symbol of gratitude or thankfulness to whatever service is provided for him.

Through and though, Keith continues to practice the law of gratitude and navigates and moves through life’s difficulties with a gratitude state of mind every single day.

And on money, he says, “Financial Freedom is God's idea for a man what God has done before he can do for me and more opens doors.”

Keith wants to know what you think about gratitude as well, and share your experience also.

Drop it in the comments section or message him. Link below.
