Here's a Thought for Dec 18, 2014. Let's switch gears! Let's begin 2015 with Love, Kindness, Change & Moving Forward!

We are thrilled to announce that our special guest on December 18, 2014 on "Here's a Thought with Charles Shaughnessy" is Life Coach Oriah Mirza.

How many of us use the New Year to take stock of our lives, start new things, decide to get rid of unhappiness, addictions, sadness, weight, finances, bad situations, bad relationships, anything that has been keeping you from moving forward?  How many say, "This is the year I will learn to put myself first, love myself first, find my voice, my happiness and create an authentic life that fulfills me," but have no idea where or how to start this process?"

Working with countless people of all ages, ORIAH Mirza is a mother of five children who has developed a unique, most effective and streamlined way to clear your mind and open your heart. Clearing out old patterns and re-constructing addictions into a fresher, more in the present moment experience...a life that is more rewarding and enjoyable. Creating a Oneness authentically within you.

In her own life, she crawled out of the inner city, with multiple schools, cities, and children behind her, 15 years of a traumatic life, and self educated to end the cycle of destruction, addiction, & violence that had been passed down for generations in her family. Breaking through systems of welfare, labor, and many unspeakable events which should have ended her life early...she preserved. At 41, she is now married to her partner and best friend Riz Mirza, both global change makers. 
They raise her five children in Malibu, CA. where they have public weekly events at their beautiful ranch and numerous outreaches to organizations and individuals that are requesting a powerful re-structuring and evolution of their results.

Considered one of the most powerful thinkers of our time, Oriah is in development of her first documentaryBeen There on Domestic Violence sharing her story and many others. She is quickly becoming a sought after mentor and visionary in free thinking and beliefs that enliven and activate your life. We couldnt be happier to have her with us on "Heres A Thought," to give you the opportunity to interact with her. 
Imagine a life where you are not concerned with people judging you and you are not judging yourself.  Ask yourself, "are you ready for a change?" Post your comments and questions to Oriah, here on the blog, about how you can start to make that change, make your dreams become a reality, change your relationships or situations and reach your goals which include happiness and balance in your personal and professional life. Tweet to @C_Shaughnessy or @JanelleGlickman your questions or comments with hashtag #Oriah.  

We hope you will be as excited with this unique opportunity to interact with Oriah LIVE on the show, or in comments and questions to her that she will answer on the show, time permitting, if you are not able to join us Live, at 3 pm this Thursday, December 18th at 3 pm PST on TradioV.com/la 
all my best,

Topic for Here's a Thought with Charles Shaughnessy for Thursday, Dec 11th

As his follow-up "Return of Here's A Thought" show, Charles will segue from the current debate on Race and Policing in America to:....Democrat or Republican? ....is it a matter of Nature or Nurture? Is political affiliation a genetic or environmental choice?
Something he has been talking about for a long time! For those of you who are new, Charlie has been blogging for years now.  To get an idea of what he has on his thoughts about this, read his blog from April of 2003 when we called it Charles Shaughnessy's Soapbox & what the comments were from the people who were following him all the way back then! 

Here are a couple of other articles to get YOUR thoughts on this subject flowing! 

Op Ed from the LA Times September 24, 2014 Similarities between Democrats, Republicans Make them so different

Republican Brains Differ From Democrats' In New FMRI Study from Feb, 2013 from huffingtonpost.com

So it will be just Charlie and YOU again for the whole hour.  If you can listen LIVE, you can find him at tradiov.com at 3 pm PST. If not, you can always catch the show in the archives at Here's A Thought with Charles Shaughnessy previous shows.

PLEASE put your questions & comments for him here in the comments section and we hope we will have even more of you calling in to discuss with him this time!! You can also tweet your questions and thoughts on this topic to his twitter account @C_Shaughnessy with the hashtag #HATdec11
