When Scott Stabile's parents were murdered he was just 14 years old. No one would have blamed him for shutting down his heart for business at that moment. But he didn't. Instead his journey led him to first survive the unthinkable and then slowly make his way toward healing his heart wounds. More tragedy came, and still he consistently cultivated a life dedicated to love, with an ever widening, life-affirming open heart.
In his book Big Love: The Power of Living with a Wide-Open Heart (New World Library, September 7, 2017) Scott shares that wide open heart with wisdom and hilarity. He reads a wonderful excerpt from the book in this interview and had Bridget laughing pretty hard throughout this interview.

Orna and Matthew Walters worked a lot on themselves before they set out to manifest their life partners. They had a lot of tools in their toolboxes, and they used them diligently. They were recovering from - respectively -- childhood abuse and alcoholism, so they had their work cut out for them. They came to the other side of their journeys into each other's arms and with the beginnings of what would become systems for love success.
They have been widely featured in all media as love experts. Orna and Matthew help women do what they did to manifest each other: heal heart wounds and clear the decks for the love and life you want.
In this episode, they give us some great tips and wisdom that apply to far more than romantic love. The work they do to help women find love can help us all when the heat in our hearts -- for whatever reason -- is turned up to scorching. Anything that helps us move around this world more able to bump into each other's hearts in a peaceful, loving way is a good thing, and Orna and Matthew give us plenty of that.
Check out Orna and Matthew's work at Love on Purpose. You don't have to take the long circuitous route to loving and being loved. You can go directly, with purpose, from Point A (pain) to Point B (love) with their beautiful, uplifting -- and sometimes hilarious -- guidance.

T. Chick McClure used to be a man in a woman's body, but now he is skyrocketing through life as the man he always knew he was since transitioning. He gave an extraordinary talk about the journey that his relationship with his father has taken during this transition at Love Forward Talks on November 11, 2018
. The audio from that talk is featured at the end of our short catch-up conversation to discover how his life and art are on a rocket ship to higher and higher places every day in these five months.
If you know someone struggling with their gender, or in any way confronted by the schism between who they are in the world and who they are in their hearts, you will want to share this with them.
Check out Chick's beautiful essay on this topic as well on Medium
, his Photo Essay
mentioned in this conversation and his Love Forward Talk, and his Instagram

and if you know of a transgender person who could use some support, Chick welcomes those communications with a giant open heart.

April is Sarcoidosis Awareness Month.
This episode is designed to take care of the hearts of those who suffer - or have loved ones who are suffering -- from this not very well known or understood disease. Many sarcoidosis sufferers will in fact never be properly diagnosed unless we continue to raise awareness. Others have been misdiagnosed with other grave diseases, such as lymphoma, and may never know that they may indeed suffer with sarcoidosis.
Many 911 first responders have died from sarcoidosis. But it isn't just a 911-related, New York based disease. Jan Casebolt lives in Los Angeles, and had been suffering for years with this debilitating disease. She was set to fly to the Cleveland Clinic for heart surgery because sarcoidosis had ravaged every part of her body except her brain: her heart was in dire need of repair. Luckily something had her say yes to an invitation to meet Master John Douglas, who is known for healing incurable diseases, and especially auto-immune disorders like this one. Jan received her miracle healing and the physical suffering was finally over. The miracles didn't stop there, though, so listen to this episode to hear all of her uplifting story.
You can read the peer-reviewed case study about her medical miracle at masterangels.org/research
If you or someone you know suffers with sarcoidosis, Jan welcomes emails at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow her Facebook page at My Sarcoidosis Miracle.
Listen to her story and share this episode wherever you can to help increase awareness of sarcoidosis, and also of the potential end of its terror on those who suffer with it.
