Stephen P. Edwards, Interview #87

Name: Stephen P. Edwards

Where you live: Sarasota, Florida, But I’m originally from Blackpool England

What you do as a vocation or avocation? I have my hand in many different things. I travel around the country teaching students about financial literacy, the importance of having it, and how it will impact their life. I also teach them how to get it.

I teach financial principles from a perspective of helping others and by having financial literacy you cannot be taken advantage of.

I teach people how to face their fears and break free from the things that have been holding them back.

It is my passion to help navigate people through the transformative shift we are seeing our planet and concousness go through right now.

I invest actively in real estate. I am the author of Communion-Cating with God, and Your Miracle Life Audio program. I am currently writing a new book called Quantum Wealth, which will teach people the true meaning of wealth, which is not just a lot of money. The book will also show you how to get it. I am a speaker on subjects such as money, wealth, real estate and spirituality. I do mind body and spirit transformative weekend seminars.

Your two favorite books: Conversations with God by Neil Donald Walsch. I just finished reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and loved it. I also enjoy books by Gregg Braden.

Your two favorite songs: Truly Madly Deeply; Savage Garden & Amazing; Seal

Why you are interested in spirituality? I believe we are living in the greatest time to ever be alive and currently we are experiencing a great shift. We are heading to a period of enlightenment and it is my joy to help people transcend through this time. I have always felt a connection with a higher power and realized that we all are connected and have that connection. Some people know how to access it and some do not. It is my passion to help every one connect to that higher power and thus live a life of miracles, a life that is full.

Your favorite quote: Every thing done in darkness eventually comes to light.

By Marianne Williamson: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Your favorite web sites: I enjoy Facebook because it gives me a chance to connect with people. J

Your hero: My Mum, she is amazing and strong, my Auntie Barbara for her strength, Nelson Mandela, Soldiers fighting for our freedoms, Mother Theresa, Jesus, Buddah, Ghandi,

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? To continuously live in the present and in the NOW.

A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?" I feel most connected when I am spending time with my wife Jenn.

The number 23 has a profound impact in my life and when I see it, the number reminds me to get present.

We love Hawaii, Mexico and New Mexico (Angel Fire).

I do not have to go any where to feel connected, I can feel that way in my home, car, on a plane, while listening to music etc.

Eva Ravenwood, Interview #86

Name: Eva Ravenwood

Where you live: Atlanta, Georgia USA

What you do as a vocation or avocation? Mystic, Radio Blog Host, Eco Spiritualist, and Author of an exploration into spirituality, mysticism and mediumship titled The Next God.

Your two favorite books:
Wild Seed by Octavia Butler and Urban Meltdown by Clive Doucet

Your two favorite songs:
I Can't Stop the Rain by Carl Anderson, and I Wanna Thank You by Mavis Staples

Why you are interested in spirituality?
In my opinion, it is our single reason for existing on this plane, on this planet, in this dimension -- to experience many material occurrences over numerous incarnations, so that we can grow spiritually to become our best spiritual selves and evolved spiritual beings eventually. How we respond to those situations as presented to us throughout life, or lives, determines our
spiritual growth, and thus our individual forward movement and participation in our collective spiritual movement. It is the purpose of our lives. To learn fully, to do no harm to self, no harm to others and be our best spiritual selves at all times. All we know can be covered with these simple dictates, if we don't over-think and complicate things. It is important to remember however, that if we are on this plane, we probably are in the kindergarten group of the universe.

Your favorite quote:
"Never make someone a priority when you are only an option to them" -- Author Unknown. I find it important to keep our energetic balance ever in perspective, as that is part of our quest for spiritual growth. Don't over take, or over give to the point of being spiritually lopsided. This sums it up! The Creator neither wants doormats or predators.

Your favorite web sites:

Your hero?
That changes daily, usually according to whomever I find who is living their lives to the fullest, with changing and improving the world as their evident goal. Right now it is my friend Dashanaba who just hustled up 5,000 pairs of donated eyeglasses for villagers in Ghana who are all losing their eyesight because they are too far away from clean drinking water to get it, and often resort to drinking the sea water that they live next to in their village, and are thus, losing their eyesight. Often, it is either the organization Kiva, or Water for People.

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn?
To maintain patience even when faced with acts of people who display extreme disregard for the safety, health, well-being and concern of others in their path, or worse, under their care.

A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?"
Almost any ocean or by the water. In Atlanta, at a lovely park called Sweetwater.
