Jennifer learned to embrace those sides of herself that were banished out of shame, fear, and social conditioning.

Her book is a brutally honest tale.  The story of one woman’s dogged tenacity to break through the barrier of her own self-exile of conforming and bending to the will of others.  Her triumphant success was deliverance into unconditional self-love.

Soulivity LIVE! Special Guest: Sharon Bauer, May 1, 2018

About Sharon

Sharon Bauer’s exploration of the body/mind/spirit connection was the unifying thread that connected her 40-year medical career as a lab technician, dental assistant, laser assistant, and surgical assistant. Though seemingly engaged in mainstream work, less obvious was her private practice as a well-established psychic counseling with clients throughout the world. Her work expanded into Mediumship where the demand for that service was so great, she now devotes herself full-time to helping and teaching others.  Her commitment to both her clients and her students is to deepen their growing relationship with the Divine, in and outside themselves.

Soulivity LIVE! Special Guest: Paul O’Brien, April 24, 2018

About Paul O’Brien

Paul O’Brien left an executive position in high-tech to invent a new category of multimedia software in 1989. This company would evolve to eventually become the world’s largest astrology and divination website in 2003. He is the author of three books. Paul is a sought-after speaker, visionary, entrepreneur, author, and founder of the Divination Foundation. Part of his purpose is to teach people all over the world to make decisions through strategic visions and infinite intelligence.

His Books

Paul’s newest book, Great Decisions, Perfect Timing: Cultivating Intuitive Intelligence, is an autobiographical, part how-to manual for intuitive decision-making and part holistic philosophy.

A previous book, The Visionary I Ching: A Book of Changes for Intuitive Decision Making, is a beautifully illustrated eBook that offers readers a tool for intuitive insight and managing change. The Visionary I Ching is a non-sexist, non-militarist interpretation of the oldest classical divination systems. The Ebook is illustrated with Joan Larimore’s I-Ching inspired art for each of the 64 hexagrams. The modern Taoist text renders this ancient system ever more useful as an intuitive decision-making aid for modern times. (Note: The Visionary I Ching is now available as a smartphone app available from both Apple and Google stores, complete with an authentic way to cast a reading using a phone or tablet.)

Paul’s first book, Divination: Sacred Tools for Reading the Mind of God, was a study of how classical divination systems (like the I Ching) can be used to help people make better decisions that result in better relationships, greater success and less stress. In all of his work, Paul shows how you can stimulate your intuition to think outside the box to solve problems that logic can’t handle — especially strategic personal and professional decisions we now must make more quickly than ever. In an easy-to-read manner, the Divination book academically explains how divination systems work, their history, psychology, and how to apply such tools for activating intuition, making great decisions and realizing optimum results.

Soulivity LIVE! Special Guest: Dr. Leslie Wells, April 19, 2018

About Dr. Leslie Wells

Dr. Leslie Wells, DC, is the founder and holistic living/healing facilitator of Bridge Holistic Healing. Her unique range of experience allows her to offer a rare blend as a practitioner and consultant.

Her journey towards becoming a health facilitator started with her own severe spinal disorder as a child. When only fourteen years old, Leslie had surgery fusing twelve joints in her spine with a steel rod and then was in a body cast for nine months. In the following years, she was determined to live an active normal life and endured increasing back pain while cheerleading, jogging and teaching aerobics. By her early twenties, Leslie was limping with sciatica and continual low back pain… until she found relief through chiropractic care. That was the turning point where a vision of helping others out of suffering was born, so she enrolled at Life University, the world’s largest chiropractic professional school, in Georgia.

Over time Dr. Leslie saw many people rapidly respond to chiropractic care, but she noticed a tendency for spinal patterns and health disorders to return over time, which led her to search for deeper core causes. Her search brought her to new and ancient methods of healing unresolved body/mind trauma, releasing underlying nervous system and spinal cord tension, balancing brain chemistry naturally, and clearing toxins that poison the body and brain health. The new results her clients experienced were not only lasting physical change but transformed relationships, healthier life choices, and a happier outlook.

Through her 20 years of ever-deepening healing work, Dr. Leslie’s reach has extended beyond the body and mind, to deeply energetic and spiritual healing. As her own personal walk with God deepened along the way, her healing progressively took on a spiritual essence and new gifts opened with the Holy Spirit moving through her voice and hands.

Her mission to uplift and support people in obtaining their best life ever reaches around the world – she has facilitated multiple outreach trips to Uganda Africa, was the emcee of the first ever Global Women’s Summit in Uganda in 2012, and in 2016 she succeeded in her goal with the Wells for Wells project to bring fresh running water to the Vine School for impoverished children and orphans for the first time ever. The school is in a remote village near Masaka.
In 2017, the E.V.E. Consciousness world tour launches, and through it, Dr. Leslie brings understanding to many around the world of how to move into their purpose by aligning to create their own reality using the Technology of Faith and awareness of their own Energetic Vibrational Escrow. These life-changing conferences span Lugano, Switzerland; The Villages in Florida; Medellin, Colombia; Sedona, Arizona; Los Angeles, California; and Auckland, New Zealand beginning in January 2018.

From the Editor – April 13, 2018


The recent anniversary of our beloved Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination reminds of his great influence on history. His personal process towards greatness came from self-examination and facing his deepest fears. He stayed true to his convictions and purpose with integrity to teach us all how to be better. His archetypal shift into becoming a leader, prophet, and challenger for the purpose of expressing his greatest passion–elevating humanity towards compassion, inclusion, unconditional love, and acceptance.  This lives on in all of us and is a template for courage. “Courage is the power of the mind to overcome fear,” said Martin Luther King.

By examining our deepest fears, which are tied to old paradigms, a new world of unlimited possibilities open. Today, we once again face uncertainty and challenges. We hope that Soulivity Magazine becomes the powerful platform where you have the opportunity to take a deep dive into your inner landscape and step into your own style of greatness.  Soulivity Magazine guest interviews grace us with unique roadmaps to happiness through personal archetypal shifts into self-awareness and self-examination – the foundation for creating an exceptional life.

When you change, everything around you changes. When you bring yourself to a higher standard, you show others how it can be done. Changing for the better offers you more happiness and stronger and healthier connections, as well. When you make an archetypal paradigm shift, friends, family, community, and the world benefits from your example. This is my dream actualized for Soulivity Magazine! You are part of the tribe that is forging powerful shifts in this challenged world we find ourselves in today.

Instead of focusing on polarity, we focus on inclusion. Instead of “either/or” thinking, we shift into “all as one.”  As we step into the sacred process of healing wounds and move beyond old patterns, we take courageous bold steps into the unknown, knowing that ‘we got this!’

I thank you for the opportunity to grace your lives through these Soulivity Magazine interviews, knowing that we are all at the right place, at the right time, putting our best selves forward as examples of love, bravery, and solidarity.  Go out there and rock your world today! Continue living with soul–and be the courageous warrior you were born to be!

With love,

Brian

Soulivity LIVE! Special Guest: Michelle Cruz Rosado, April 3, 2018

About Michelle Cruz Rosado

As the voice for humanity’s evolutionary movement, Michelle (Mikaila) Cruz Rosado is the co-founder of Rosado Companies, LLC and has created a dynamic enterprise that is devoted to empowering people from all walks of life.

Rosado’s dreams of entrepreneurship were manifested while working in the marketing department at an investment-banking firm in New York City. After being there for over a year she began to feel that her career was becoming stagnant. She began taking classes at the New York Institute of Photography and even took classes in web design at New York University. Rosado found herself frustrated that her ideas for change in the department fell on deaf ears. Then, on the morning of September 11, 2001, when she was at her desk on the 95th floor of Tower 2 in the World Trade Center, her life was changed forever.

“I finally realized…those trivial ideas no longer mattered. I was alive, and there was a reason for my presence here. I worked in a great office, had a great job and wonderful co-workers; in an instant, it was all gone.”

During her journey in network marketing, Rosado discovered her gift for public speaking. She presented to audiences of 15-20 people one or two times a week, and she also conducted sales training to existing members. Mikaila immersed herself in books on speaking and sales techniques, and she began traveling throughout the United States to do presentations and train their salespeople. The audiences grew to 500, then 1,000. She found her true passion—inspiring, motivating and empowering people to reach their highest limits.

Having received several awards, she has also been featured on TV and radio networks such as CNN, NBC Nightly News, FOX, and BBC.
