Reclaiming Authenticity: The courage to reclaim that which has always been in you.
No matter who we are, where we were born, and into what family we were placed, ours is a world full of relationships. Indeed, we are social beings who spend our lives making sense of our world by trying to find our place in the world. As social beings, it is often within the context of relationships that we experience tremendous pain and suffering. From overt acts of betrayal and cruelty that someone may have inflicted against us or vice versa, to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time, many people bear the scars of physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual wounds. And yet ironically, just as we experience our woundedness in relationships, it is also within the context of healthy relationships that we find our healing and authenticity. The difficulty, then, is often finding the courage to discover that which has always been in you.
For over 25 years, Dr. James Houck has been helping people discover their authentic selves by integrating spirituality into their mental and emotional health. As people are able to integrate these disciplines, they often discover core issues that have been keeping them wounded in relationships.

Pacific Standard Time and every other time in between so each and every week these broadcasts are dedicated to the integration of spirituality and our mental health and that is always been the focus of these shows because one of the things that I have found is that through history spirituality and mental health have always been kept at arm's length from each other but that is not supposed to be<br>because I'm driving found and this is where I've been trained in to actually it's great the two as an extension you know whenever we better understand understand ourselves in spiritual terms in our mental health and vice versa so this is a one of the reasons why I integrate spirituality and mental health now if you would also like to call in and be part of the show that number is 888-627-6008 that's 888-627-6008 and I'll be taking your calls after the break<br>well for those of you who are tuned again for the first time I just wanted to say welcome I am always grateful for first-time listeners and just in case you are wondering what reclaiming authenticity is all about it is this reclaiming authenticity focuses on the integration as I said of spirituality and our mental health but it's all within the context of our relationships with ourselves and others and and God or the Divine and I would also like to say that I am a firm believer that all of us come in the world already equipped and graced with everything we need in this life in terms of our giftedness are skills or talents great strength of character traits so on and so forth the very very very best parts of ourselves exactly Who We Are<br>however as we go along in life and perhaps due to some unpleasant experiences we may feel that we need to hide our giftedness in our skills and our talents or we push our strengths way down so that others cannot see it or even perhaps we were told that we would never amount to anything growing up or whatever other voice we heard telling us that there's nothing special to us but at any rate when this occurs we do not realize our strengths and giftedness are our perseverance and skills and so forth through life from that place of being wounded or place of victimization instead of a place of healing and wholeness and embracing our uniqueness or a chance Oz<br>and the reason why I place this integration of spirituality and mental health in relationships is because I think of it this way we often receive our deepest physical emotional psychological even spiritual wounds in relationships and yet our greatest healing and strength and peace and forgiveness and love through healthier relationships and all comes back to relationships I mean we did not live on an island and you know we are relational beings and so we have to start there just what does it mean to be in relationship with one another because he's relationships you know when we experience these these painful events as well as healing strength peace and forgiveness just might be within our own families or say our colleagues and friends but<br>we can always striving to transform because when we transform we also transform others by our presents are Grace and our understanding how we carry ourselves how we talk to one another and so for even the way in which we smile at one another communicates this transformation because first and foremost is forgiveness and kindness and compassion begins with how we treat ourselves because whenever we are compassionate with ourselves we find that we can be more compassionate with others and when we are forgiving of ourselves then we could be more forgiving of others and when were able to live in gratitude with ourselves we did discover how this opens our hearts to see and live in gratitude with others<br>as I said transformation first and foremost begins with us well how is your heart today I hope your heart is well I hope you are well and I pray that if you are struggling today that you will find rest and comfort and the piece that you need<br> well again thanks for joining me this afternoon this is a very special focus on reclaiming authenticity we're going to take a look at just transforming the dimensional energy of intergenerational trauma and this is something that's always been near and dear to my heart and just how trauma not only affects one generation but also Generations as it's being passed out even to Generations who have yet to be born but it doesn't mean that it always has to be that way okay so let's begin by remembering an ancient African proverb that states that that it takes a village to raise a child<br> Caillou takes a village to raise a child and I'm sure all of us have heard this phrase one time or another it's very catching it's very true you know another words the survival of any people extends beyond the immediate family so indeed it does take a village to raise a child and regardless of nationality and Creed and race we are more connected to one another than what we realize and yet just as it takes many people to contribute to the development of a generation of children<br> history has been showing us that it also takes a village where it took a village to hide the scandals the abuses and the atrocities that have now been coming to light<br> because you see no one person or an entity acts alone no secret remains hidden and you know truth never stays buried so yes dead men and women and children do tell Tales of how they died and honestly some died of natural causes some died at the hands of others and some people were not even considered worthy to be buried respectfully but for all of these atrocities and more it is time for us to begin telling and retelling the stories of how they left it's a time for us to see them for who they are and who they were that is Souls Souls that live on after their hearts have stopped beating and their brain waves have ceased<br> Souls that surround us even today like a cloud of witnesses or the communion of saints if you want to put it in that way and our ancestors do speak to us constantly through the blood that runs through our veins and yet how do we reconcile these events with what we do today<br> you know how do we reconcile the past with the present<br> because this is the real effort behind healing intergenerational trauma because trauma has the potential to disconnect us from who we are as a soul or shall I say at least our awareness of who we truly are<br> and the reason for this is because trauma places what I like to refer to as a distorted template over our perceptions and very it accurately trauma sense to us this is all there is this is all there is to you this is as good as it gets so you might as well get used to it and yet all lies and distortions that come from other wounded people who have yet to embrace themselves as so these are the statements that come from those who have yet to understand this about themselves so it's very distorted and once we Embrace ourselves as so we may just be astonished to see the power of our soul 2. Auntie transcend trauma and we can also transform our wounded energy<br> but we can also Empower others to do the same<br> because still as history has taught us and still teaches us many had feared their resiliency and power of the soul and therefore many have tried to silence the souls cry<br> well through killings and murders and genocide and starvation and forced assimilation of humiliation and degradation looking at people as Savages are primitive and backward or unworthy unlovable and therefore disposable as those in control see fit and yet what's heartbreaking to me is that these atrocities have often been committed in the name of God by people who should see themselves as a sole attract even when killing is done in the name of advancing the kingdom of God the only thing that is truly Advanced is this distorted view from those who will do anything to hang onto their power<br> well as I said the Today show is going to focus on the historical treatment of people and in particular have chosen to talk about the Native American Indians and the events that related to the Carlisle Indian boarding industrial school that's located in Carlisle Pennsylvania and if you have never been there either I just encourage you to make the trip not too far from the capital the capital of Harrisburg not too far from Hershey Pennsylvania and so forth and it is relatively small but it is powerful none the less especially the cemetery but if you do anything about the history of the boarding schools throughout America as well as Canada then you know just how devastating the history has been for Native American Indian<br> because quite often Native American Indians are forced and were forced to carry their scars on the inside which are not so easily visible except for let's say the explicit Rez behaviors of the alcoholism or homelessness or drug used crime and suicide and those are the things that often make front page news but what doesn't make front-page news is that if we look closely below the surface of these behaviors discovered the emotional and spiritual symptoms of boarding school trauma<br> trauma such as hopelessness and depression anxiety mistrust nightmares sadness hyper-vigilant and so on<br> and ironically these symptoms are also appearing in our Native American Youth who are perhaps 1 2 3 even for Generations removed from such boarding school experiences and this phenomenon of course leads us to wrestle with these questions like how's it possible that children grandchildren and great-grandchildren are experiencing the same emotional psychological and spiritual symptoms as their ancestors who experienced boarding school related rape murder starvation molestation and so forth<br> and are these children and grandchildren simply over identifying with the story is communicated by their ancestors you know the stories that have been passed down to them<br> and are traumatic experiences locked somewhere in shall we say the DNA of survivors only to be passed down later<br> and our traumatic symptoms modeled from one generation to another<br> well let's take a closer look at the Carlisle Indian boarding industrial school and let's delve into not only its history but also the dramatic effects that yes have been handed down intergenerational e<br> sell the Carlisle Indian boarding industrial school it was it was first established in the late eighteen hundreds of Summer around 1879 and it is located in Carlisle Pennsylvania in eastern part of the United States and it was the first of its kind located outside the reservations and this school was modeled actually after the Hampton Institute for African Americans which educated and trained African Americans to assimilate into society and under the leadership of Captain Richard Pratt and back by the United States government and other religious organizations the Carlisle school was actually held up as a model for all other schools that sought to assimilate back then Native American Indian children into productive euro-americans<br> now many people of that time. Believed that these boarding schools were also the most effective way to Stave off a Dying Breed as well as integrated the Native American Indian into a thriving Euro American culture and Lakota Chiefs as it was recorded back then Lakota Chief such as Blue Horse and American Horse and Redshirt were among the first Native American Indians to send their children to the Carlisle School these leaders were convinced that by learning the English language and learning English customs and skills that this was the only real future their children had in terms of survival<br> and still others like Lakota Chief Red Cloud or chief spotted tail mistrusted the white way of educating Native American Indian children but they were urged by Captain Pratt to comply with this new system theory for you just briefly the letter that Captain Pratt sent to spot a tail he writes spotted tail you are a remarkable man you are such an able man that you are the principal chief of these thousands of your people but spotted tail you cannot read or write you claimed that the government has tricked your people in place the lines of your reservation a long way inside where it was agreed that they should be<br> you signed that paper knowing only what The Interpreter told you if anything happened when the paper was being made up that changes order if you had been educated and could read and write you could have known about it and refused to put your name on it<br> do you intend to let your children remain in the same condition of ignorance in which you have lived which will compel them always to meet the say white man at a great disadvantage through an interpreter as you have done<br> that's your friend spotted tail I urge you to send your children with me to this Carlisle school and I will do everything I can to advance them and intelligence and Industry and order that they may come back and help you and this was you can find this letter from Captain Pratt it said the book Battlefield and classroom for decades with the American Indian<br> what astonishes me about this letter is not the persuasiveness so-called persuasiveness I Pratt's words to spot a tail but but rather the insulting undertone of his letter implying that you know spotted tail if you had only been educated and if you could only read and write you could have known about what you signed then you would have refused to put your name on it<br> and and furthermore in his haste to provide United States with the prototypical school for others to follow suits you know Richard Pratt also galvanized this condescending perspective that unfortunately carries on to this day<br> in other words his arrogance completely disregarded the whole Native American Indian worldview of his day and then lie to their strong correct connection to the Creator and all living beings<br> and it also damaged them to the stay connected to the Creator in a relationship that is to connect them to living according to Nature cycles and to learn from animals how they raise their young and hunting and then survival and so forth and honoring traditions of their ancestors and how ancestors are always a part of the Native way of life in perspective and how relationships are based on honor respect and love and how families and ancestors are valued<br> and how children are considered walking in other words they're sacred they're pure and holy as well as the continuation of their culture<br> you see everything and everyone is woven together in an all-encompassing worldview<br> but you cannot separate one thread from the woven fabric without unraveling the whole blanket<br> and in his letter is Captain Pratt suggested that spotted tail learn the white ways so that he would not be taken advantage of instead of dealing honest honestly with him in the first place and let's look at it this way why would spot a tail or any other Native American Indian need to guard against being Allied to unless Pratt and others know how people will deceive the Native American Indian<br> but that's a good question<br> and furthermore it also implies that the burden of survival is placed on the spotted tail instead of Pratt reaching out in humility to understand the native culture<br> down from today's perspective not as much not much has changed since 1879 and then some I may just look just recently even four years ago at the protest against building the Dakota access pipeline in 2016 I think it was February of 2017 the Native American Indians and other environmental activists were forcibly removed and or arrested from their protest camps<br> and none the less there are still people today who they think they know what is best for Native American Indians who do not live on the reservations and what often makes matters worse is that that same type of people represent Indians in government but they never stopped to listen with humility to the real needs of the people<br> a today's egocentric approach simply continues to what Pratt and others begin<br> now although admission to the Carlisle school was voluntary at first it became increasingly coercive I mean Native American Indian children were often taken away from their families by force and anything less than a total assimilation of the Native American Indian into the Euro American culture was not tolerated as set forth by Captain Pratt and he also wrote that you know his philosophy of Kill The Indian in order to save the man further push this egocentrism as this world view echoed throughout other residential schools and United States and Canada and this is what I actually wrote this it goes back to 1892 and he gave an official report to the 19th annual conference of Charities and correction and he wrote this he says<br> a great General has said that the only good Indian is a dead end Dan Pratt said in a sense but only in this but it all Indians there is a race that should be dead Kill The Indian in him and save the man<br> and like I said this was a letter that he had submitted to the 19th annual conference of Charities and correction in 1892<br> Native American children that were made to endure this forced relocation to the boarding school and in addition to being cut off from their families thousands of miles away their Indian names your rich with tribal significance where change to Christian names their long hair also a part of tribal significance was cut short at all date of American clothing and accessories such as beads and feathers and moccasins and so far we're destroyed the children were then forced to read write and speak English and for those children who attempted to speak their own language or follow their religion they were punished with mouthfuls of soap<br> and the living arrangements were also deplorable in that the children were forced into overcrowded rooms and they had to endure exhausting lengthy work hours<br> and physical sexual emotional and spiritual abuse has occurred frequently at the hands of the educational and religious staff<br> now because of these harsh conditions with little to no medical care many children had had run away other children died from exposure to tuberculosis or smallpox and some children simply could not survive the pain of separation from their family and they get out of there their health impaired by the school's strict routine and another letter not from Pratt but another letter was recorded and I'll just read this to you briefly and then it says it is hard to imagine dying of homesickness yet it was a very serious problem for Indian students homesickness with them became a disease wrote an official at the Hampton Hampton Institute and boys and girls actually suffered In the Flesh as well as the spirit they couldn't eat they would not sleep<br> and so prepared the way for serious trouble because when people do not take care of their bodies it becomes easier for them to become sick the profound sadness caused by homesickness weaken the students and made them susceptible to deadly diseases such as tuberculosis and influenza and these contagious disease is easily spread because of the unsanitary conditions at the boarding schools it was not unusual for a dozens of students to sleep in one big room lined with rows of beds or for two children to sleep together in a single bed and this enabled germs to spread easily from one child to another<br> well I would really love to hear what's on your heart what's going on in you right now as I talked about this subject so again if you would like to call it and that number is 888-627-6008 that's 888-627-6008 and I'll be taking your calls after the break again you are listening to reclaiming authenticity and I'm your host dr. James hauke I'll be back with you in 1 minute<br> okay welcome back welcome back everybody on dr. James how can you are listening to reclaiming authenticity before I go any further in the show just want to say a word about next week's show tune in Next Friday afternoon and we will be in the lovely month of August yes the year is just flying by and whenever we get into August we are you know we're reminded of back-to-school shopping and everything else so if you have not started please get out there and make sure that your child your teenager is ready for the next school year I will see how that all turns out with this pandemic and everything but at any rate in just invite you to tune in Next Friday afternoon when I'm going to continue this conversation on transforming<br> dimensional energy of the intergenerational trauma and we're going to take a look another close look at the mass graves in Ireland can I have this was a place that I had visited years and years ago this was something that I just felt led to when I had heard and actually read the reports that over no close to 300 children or it's a baby remains were found in June Ireland and that's in County Galway and it's just something I was able to walk the land and talk to the people who live around there and some of the stories that they had shared with me about what it happened as well as what's being covered up so again invite you to tune in Next Friday when we take a look at the mass graves in Ireland and how we can transform this our dimensional energy of energetic<br> National trauma because healing is available to everyone excuse me as I clear my throat sorry Native American Indian children were made to endure this Force relocation to the Carlisle Indian boarding industrial school and in addition to being cut off from families thousands of miles away with that tribal significance where forcibly change to Christian names and their hair their long hair also a part of their tribal significance was cut short and all Native American clothing and accessories such as beads and feathers and moccasins were destroyed and the children were forced to read and write and speak English<br> and as I said earlier the children who attempted to speak their own language or even follow their religion while they were punished with mouthfuls of soap and living arrangements were also deplorable and that the children were forced into overcrowded rooms and they had to endure exhausting lengthy work hours<br> and the physical sexual emotional and spiritual abuse has occurred frequently at the hands of the educational and religious staff and as I also mentioned because of these harsh conditions with little or no medical care many children ran away you know other children died from that when they were exposed to tuberculosis tuberculosis or smallpox and some children simply couldn't survive the pain of separation from their families that their health impaired was impaired by the school's strict routine well by the 1880s okay we were just fifteen years or so outside of a civil war here in the United States there were 60 Indian boarding schools throughout the United States<br> and by 1900 just 20 years after that thousands of Native Americans were living at 150 boarding schools around the United States now this is not just the United States problem because to the north there were approximately 69 residential schools throughout Canada and 80 residential schools by 1931 and ironically the the last federally-run residential school the Gordon Indian residential school in Saskatchewan closed in 1996 and yes you heard correctly 1996 so this just wasn't a problem in the eighteen hundreds or the early nineteen-hundreds this is been going on okay and it continues all right because even though that these residential schools<br> and these boarding schools have been shut down now they've been closed for some time just pay attention to the stereotypes that are still out there and the perspective and the idiot are just how people like Captain Pratt and his his prejudices and his his you know the way he just tried to promote his own agenda how that's also carried on today and governments and religious orders such as Catholic Anglican Methodist and so on were often seen as extensions of one on one another as more often than not extreme and cruel measures were taken by these systems the separate native children from their families and a separate Native American Indians from their soul or their soul awareness<br> as we have seen over the past decades as more and more lawsuits are coming out against the once government / religious established in schools and residential schools adult survivors are exposing the harsh treatment they had received<br> and through their heartbreak and tears many have shared how they have often were beaten or whipped or burned or throw downstairs how they were molested exploited and raped by officials<br> in fact the adult survivors of childhood boarding schools also suffered emotional psychological and spiritual abuse has as many believe that they had been abandoned by God because God's representatives were the ones hurting them<br> well I want to share with you a story and experience that I have I have a several Native American Indian Lakota friends and made friends with them when I was out in South Dakota visiting and spent some time with them and you know who developed that relationship and you just happened to be out in the Philadelphia area which I don't live too far from and you know it was on in November and we were down for several are out for several days and yeah met him early and you know they sitting around having breakfast I joined them you know we're just talking about okay what is it that you want to do today and one of them spoke up and said hey how far is this Carlisle boarding school from here<br> and so from Philadelphia we were easily able to get there through the turnpike in about an hour and a half give or take okay so it was on a crisp Sunny November morning that we just kind of loaded everybody up and in my car and then we drove to go from Philadelphia to the former site of the Carlisle Indian industrial boarding school and now as I said that they were in town I think we are doing a fundraiser and they wanted to see this school since they're only knowledge of this place was from stories that they had been told or red and the Native American Indian boarding schools have always been a sensitive subject with my friends because they recall the horrific stories told to them by their tribal grandmothers and grandfathers when they were younger and several of these experiences have play<br> their ancestors with the physical psychological and spiritual scars that are constant reminder of how do United States view their so-called Savage and uncivilized race<br> now ironically histories patterns of prejudice cruelty and mistreatment is not exclusive to Native American Indians but it also extends to any gender or race or class or ethnicity or nationality and so on in which a society and its systems guy never society and its system such as governmental educational religious science cetera<br> any system any society that categorizes people as unworthy Untouchable or unlovable<br> and today many people still look the place of specific blame for such brutality and and yet who's at fault<br> who do you prosecute for such crimes against humanity can individuals be singled out or does blame belong to communities in general<br> let's go back to that African proverb you know that stated it takes a village to raise a child well and also takes a village to perpetuate the physical emotional and spiritual atrocities no one acts alone now surprisingly let's go back into history you know a little bit more Adolf Hitler is that name ring a bell Adolf Hitler acknowledge this kind of phenomenon early in his life he also read about the so-called successes of the boarding schools and the philosophy behind that and as we all know from history he took it one step further but let's read something that he had written back in his day regarding this<br> he said even in those days I saw that there was a two-fold method by which alone it would be possible to bring an amelioration of these conditions were worsening of these conditions the first method is first to create better fundamental conditions of Social Development by establishing a profound feeling of social responsibilities among the public<br> and II the combined this feeling for their the the social responsibilities with a ruthless determination to prune away all successes which are incapable of being improved and we all know that what he meant by this it was that you wanted to prune a way people who didn't fit this in his mind the superior race and this was something that when it came to the Nuremberg trials after World War II<br> that you do actually the the doctors who had come over to the United States to learn about you know forced extermination than genocide and and other things you have forced treatments and all that that's what they claimed it when they were put on trial that's like why are you punishing us because United States you're the ones who trained us you're the ones that first showed us so who's really at fault here you know we could we can point out individuals and single people out but let's really brought in the net shall we let's really you know talk about<br> again how much of a larger on your scale does this extension if it takes a child to if it takes a village to raise a child so too does it take the village to perpetuate physical emotional and spiritual atrocities and yet the flip side is also true it also takes a village to perpetuate healing<br> compensation respect honor promote dignity value and worth among the generations K and yet as more and more of these historical atrocities continue to emerge from those whose cries reach our own Souls<br> Villages may want to hide their heads in the sand and pretend that they don't see it but they don't hear it or are they not they're not going to speak any evil<br> however the time has come that we can no longer pretend that were not part of larger systems that produce and perpetuate the mistreatment of others<br> so when my friends and I got to the Carlisle boarding school we were standing there in the middle of one of the grave sites<br> and we were struck by the diversity of the Native American Indian and the children on how they were identified by their white gravestone and among the children buried there were Cherokee Lakota Sioux<br> Inuit Apache Webelo Seminole and many other tribal Nations<br> now how about a third of the gravestones were marked unknown which represented on identified children and each of us we we bless each grave with a pinch of tobacco and Sage offerings and we honored all who are buried there not referring to them as children but instead were referring to them as grandmothers and grandfathers<br> the ancestors<br> and I stood there with my friends and I listen to their prayers as they poured out their hearts and their tears<br> and it hit me<br> in this one prayer<br> I'm referring to them as grandmothers and grandfathers and their ancestors they basically unraveled Captain Kratts philosophy of killing the Indian to save the man<br> Pratt's philosophy fueled of Nations behavior of assimilating Indians into European Ways by you know this forced relocation stripping them of their names their clothes and hair and language and religion and other native customs and thousands of children were portrayed as having been assimilated into the American culture in the historical picture of them sitting on the grass in front of Pratt's home at headquarters you can Google this you know you can even watch it on YouTube if it's there is just it's Unforgettable you know what there's hundreds of Native American children and their teachers there right in front of Pratt's home just sitting on the ground and we walked those lands<br> and as we stood on the grassy land my my friends were deeply moved as they proudly that I mean proudly proclaimed through their tears that Pratt had failed because we Indians are still here<br> yeah truth never stays buried because Humanity cannot has not and will never ever be able to annihilate people who they truly are Eternal souls and despite its Simplicity and it really doesn't take a genius IQ to recognize the opportunity governments in religious orders possess to manipulate the truth in order to exploit a people and push their own agenda<br> and furthermore it also stands to reason that governments were religious orders going to make education at the anything they want to be you know by distortions of the truth or just let's say let's call it flat-out brainwashing because we have for example if you viewed Native American Indians back then as uncivilized Savages then you can design education to teach them accordingly<br> you know if you teach Native American Indians who attended boarding schools that their religion and language excetera is inferior to other societies then eventually what will students come to believe<br> and if they are taught that they are incapable of making logical decisions for themselves<br> how long does it take to turn a group of people into dependents<br> because seriously how much has changed since then how many of us in history classes were taught the perspective of Native American Indians other than how colonization benefited from White Anglo-Saxon people<br> and this kind of course of Education undergirded by the physical emotional sexual and spiritual abuse has makes for a very powerful means to control the hearts and minds of any generation<br> well Generations after generations of the Carlisle you know Native American Indians after the Carlisle boarding school closed its doors in 1918 Native Americans are still there still and during the memories of endless suffering of their people Native American Indians are still here and it was reported that over 10,000 Native American children from 140 tribes attended this Carlisle boarding school but according to the author hunt that's h u n t e r written the book in 2012 only about a hundred fifty eight students graduated<br> which done leaves the question where are the others<br> Mass Graves of native and non-native people are being uncovered throughout this world and generations and generations from other indigenous schools are coming forward with eyewitness stories of abuse and death in the discard both memories and bodies and government and ecclesiastical bodies often scramble to offer apologies and comprised Truth and Reconciliation Commission is to ease their consciousness<br> however let's let's kick this question around our apologies enough<br> I don't think so. When corrupt systems and illegal practices and entitlements are still evident today<br> so how do we heal how do we heal a people who have been told that they are worthless no-good cannot you know amount to anything in their lives how do we transform that kind of distorted truth or as I said earlier flat-out brainwashing okay how do you unravel or how do you heal from generations of being educated that they are inferior and Leo how do we do this<br> well we start by finding the truth<br> I'll be at ever painful<br> we start with the truth<br> are we starts with the fact that all of humanity regardless of race religion Creed culture and so forth gender all that when you get to the very core of the heart of the matter no pun intended you find that we are all Souls<br> and all the isms out there all the external stuff that have created these wars and prejudices and fights and arguments and so forth that still go on today are all based on the external which none of us<br> had any say over when we came into this world<br> and yet we are gifted in Grace with very very beautiful skills and talents and personalities and so forth that are to be valued<br> I think I hear it every now and then you know from from people just where I live and so forth that you know I wish we could find a generation who can solve some of these problems were waiting for people to step up and do things and you know when will they you know you find it within themselves to find a cure for whatever this or whatever that and I just I just kind of shake my head and go you know it those gifts are already there I'm convinced of it but yet how we treat one another you know the people have still yet to find the very best of themselves<br> you know I'm unconvinced and I share this with my clients all the time I used I say look I I you know Council new clients and everybody basically that come from two very deep-seated beliefs Within Myself so just of how and why I cancelled the way that I do and the first one it is that I truly believe that people have the answers within another words you know the kind of life you want to lead you know what brings you happiness and joy and peace and contentment and so forth and you know what doesn't and yet at the same time the second profound deep-seated belief in myself is that I truly believe that people come into this world with everything that they need as I mentioned at the beginning of the show all the gifts and Graces and talents and skills and and personality and so forth<br> but yet how many times do we hide that out of fear of being persecuted or or out of you. We we swallow the distorted messages that were told to us that you never amount to anything or you simply don't matter and<br> if there's one thought I can leave you with today it's this<br> don't you dare let anybody Define who you need to be in order to suit them<br> you find the very best parts of you you find your soul you find your happiness<br> find dr. James hauke and you have been listening to reclaiming authenticity again invite you to tune in next Friday and I will continue this conversation on transforming dimensional energy of intergenerational trauma as we take a look at the mass graves in Ireland but until then ask that you would be safe and healthy and until we hear each other again or see each other again may God hold all of us in the palm of God's hand take care bye bye<br> it's all there and we'll see you next Friday at noon on CBS Radio TV<br>
