Dr. Judith describes five (5) common judgments and asks you to consider which judgments take place in your thinking.

She refers the listener (seeker) to previous episodes (#5 and #8), highlighting more of what she discusses in this current episode on judgments.

Dr. Judith discusses four Soul states (i.e., asleep, dozing, partially awake, engaged-ascending Soul) on the path in Soul evolution, the experience of the ego-persona, and the role of the great mediator, Jesus. She tells two stories: the ‘Tortoise and the Hare’ and the ‘Baby Eagle and the Big Eagle’ as representation of the soul, ego-persona, and Jesus representing the role of the Mediator along with other saints, as examples of helpers to our ongoing Soul advancement. *From Dr. Holder’s second book (2020 e-book): Opening Up to Your Divinity: Practical Strategies and Practices for Soul Growth.
Dr. Judith talks about times you can ‘fall out of warp’ with what is helpful to you and how those around you, like family and/or friends can see it quicker than yourself. Falling out of warp is like not being in sync with your Soul, which may be due to fearfulness, uncertainty, being overly concerned about what others might think, say, or do. The result is that you aren’t hearing the promptings of your Soul of what and how to do something. It is as if a wall goes up of static hindering your connection with the substance of your life, your Soul. This is where the importance of having a community of like-mined Souls, where others can see aspects about you that you may not initially see. This helps you to reduce the static and get back on the ‘beam’, the path to your Source.
Dr. Judith talks about trust, our assumptions, and convictions; and discerning when to “trust and confirm-verify”. She ties this into, in part, to the language of your Soul, like a newborn baby whose different cries are trying to communicate something to us. In cultivating a sensitivity to your Soul, we can hear the Soul’s prompting and positively act on those prompting(s). She tells the story of having a cell phone speaker problem, which relates to trust and verify, and a phrase her mother used while growing up (Good, Better, Best), which drives home the point of what your Soul wants.
Dr. Judith highlights some of the Universal Laws by which the Soul operates, which are different for man-made Laws, which we abide by in daily living. What about Universal Laws? Do they have a place in the Soul’s Evolution. The Soul wants to vibrate at a high frequency but D.E.N.S.I.T.Y.© *, not only weights the Soul down but also like garbage, “stinky”. She compares this type of “stinky” energy to a garbage landfill you don’t wish to occupy space within you because it creates barriers to Soul Expansion. *DENSITY is discussed more in Dr. Holder’s second book (2020 e-book) on Opening Up to Your Divinity: Practical Strategies and Practices for Soul Growth.
Dr. Judith shares some ways to distinguish between whether it is your ego operating versus the Soul expressing in your interactions. She shares an acronym L.E.N.S. to view how the ego and soul looks at daily situations and provides helpful questions to ask oneself to tap more into your Soul expression. Also, she suggests choosing one virtue to intentionally work on cultivating your mastery which supports Soul growth, and she shares her virtue quality.
Dr. Judith shares about a recent experience in which she was ‘fired’ by a person and using some spiritual principles and foundational stones talks about her approach and asks you to consider your approaches to your situations. She also talks about types of highways our Soul testing(s) occur and re-introducing the importance of STILL time and three strategies (cork in water, skateboard, trampoline) to managing the curve balls that may be thrown your way.
Dr. Judith talks about an essential ingredient that your Soul needs to supports its continued growth and advancement on a spiritual path. She gives you an acronym (S.T.I.L.L.) to remember some of what your Soul needs, provides a couple of ways of connecting with your Soul, and quick fieldwork (like homework) to begin reflecting and cultivating on your Soul awareness.
Dr. Judith shares another foundational stone or pillar in anchoring you in something more meaningful, which is your I Am Presence. She talks about three types of distractions that keep us disconnected from living a meaningful life; the law of cause and effect; and how rumination keeps us tied up in negativity and further disconnects us from our Soul. She reads a short affirmation from The Magic Presence, a book by Godfre Ray King. Also, you are asked to reflect on how you are reducing some of the distractions in your world.
Dr. Judith describes how attention works to create our reality which is a foundational stone in soul development, the distinction between attention and intention, and the power of the subconscious mind, which affects the Law of Attraction. She also discusses the importance of reassessing what you are constantly putting your attention on and a willingness to shift these focuses if having a negative pull on your energy, soul, and well-being.
Dr. Judith drills down into understanding what barriers and types of fears that acted as roadblocks to her moving forward with hosting her podcast. She asks you to ponder these same barriers and what they may be looking like in your life and hindering your greatness. Her ultimate desire and goal is to serve and help others to transcend their former selves through embracing and applying spiritual principles in how we approach life’s adventures.
Dr. Judith shares her journey and story on how she came to host her podcast focusing on spirituality, psychology, wellness, and how to gain the most from life’s adventures. She talks about the unique needs of the soul, about her two books, and invites seekers to begin to think about life’s events and experiences that are encountered from the perspectives of: the skateboard, the cork in water and/or the trampoline.
