Episode 57: Sacred Sexuality

Why do we have sex or seek to engage with another sexually?

In this episode of The Love Cast, we discuss a mature subject matter that might not be suitable for young ears.  This episode deals with the topic of sexuality, and more specifically, sacred sexuality.

Most conversations about sex and sexuality usually come from one of two destructive and harmful extremes.  One extreme views sex and sexuality from a shame based religious paradigm.  This is rooted in the fallacious idea that base human nature and sexual desire is inherently evil, shameful, and is something to be repressed. 

The other extreme takes a reactive and opposite approach to sex and sexuality by viewing it in a casual and non-sacred way.  

In this episode of The Love Cast, Aly Sousa and Jamal Jivanjee seek to shed light on the destructive nature of seeing our sexuality as something shameful to be repressed, as well as the equally destructive nature of seeing sex and sexuality in a casual and non-sacred way. 

Why do we have sex or seek to engage with another sexually?  This is an all important question that often goes un-examined.  In this conversation, we discuss why our sexuality is one of the most powerful aspects of our being that has the potential for great healing and restoration, or for great pain and dehumanization.  There are many layers to this conversation that are important for us to consider no matter if we are married or single.  Give this episode a careful listen.

Episode 56: Why Your Prayers Go Unanswered...

In this episode of The Love Cast, I talk about why the prayers of so many of us go unanswered.  This episode begins by exposing the religious fallacy of surrendering our intentions and desires at 'the cross' and why this concept is damaging to us psychologically. I also talk about the healthy concept of surrendering our attachments, however, and why intentions and attachments are not the same thing.  

At the 12:26 mark, I get into why our prayers seemingly go unanswered and how many of us unintentionally block the answers to the very prayers we are praying.  I discuss the necessity of our personal operating systems to be congruent with what we have intention and desire for and why the dismantling of our foundational assumptions and beliefs about reality are key to bringing our personal operating systems in line with our intentions / prayers.  

At the 23:26 mark, I talk about the power of personal coaching in regards to identifying and addressing incongruity within our personal operating systems and the prayers / intentions we have been asking for.

At the 25:50 mark, I introduce my friend Krystal to the podcast who I've had the privilege of coaching this past year.  She describes her experience and the changes in her life as a result of her operating system being adjusted.  

Give this conversation a careful listen and enjoy.

Episode 54: Is God A Mother? Why The Motherhood of God Is Unknown or Offensive In Traditional Christianity...A Conversation With Aly Sousa

In traditional Christianity, God is almost exclusively understood in masculine terms.  God is always a 'He' and a 'Father', but almost never is God referred to in the feminine as 'She' or as 'Mother'?  Not only is this absent from the typical Christian understanding of God, referring to the divine through a feminine grid is often met with disdain and hostility.       

In this episode of The Love Cast, Jamal Jivanjee and Aly Sousa sit down to talk about why this occurs, how this damages humanity at a psychological level, and even how this contributes to sexual repression.  Could the 'Way' of Jesus (as understood in the days of Jesus) be just as much about the revelation of God as mother as well as father?  Could this original understanding of the gospel have been purposely concealed?  This episode deserves a careful hearing from start to finish.
