Empowered Former LDS: The Podcast

 

Thank you for your interest in this podcast

 

 


Although everyone has their own unique experience, we all pretty much know what it means to be "former LDS."  But what does it mean to be empowered?

Who is it that "empowers" you? Is it anything like being endowed?  (yuck!)

This podcast will explore this question of empowerment.  What is it? What is it NOT? How do you get it? What do you do with it when you have it? How do you hold on to it? How do you avoid giving it away?

Come share your story with us on Empowered Former LDS: The Podcast

Worldview Questions: These questions will help me see how you see yourself and the world around you.  Please answer the following 20 questions by ranking each one as:

STRONGLY AGREE = I strongly believe this (75-100% probability)
MOSTLY AGREE = I like thinking this way, but I am not completely sure (25-75% probability)
AMBIVALENT = I'm not sure, I could go either way (0-25% probability)
SLIGHTLY DISAGREE = I have significant doubts (25-75% improbability)
STRONGLY DISAGREE = I don't believe this (75-100% improbability)

Meditation is a healthy practice

Spirituality is a healthy way of looking at the world

Religion has an overall positive influence on the world

There is some kind of Deep Energetic Highly Evolved Intelligence that forms everything in this Universe

Everything I experience is experienced through my mind

I experience only a small fraction of reality

My thoughts create my perception of reality

I trust my instincts

I am a kind, loving, generous person

I am more than just my physical body

I am grateful for everything that happens in my life -- even the really hard stuff

The world would be a better place if people expressed more gratitude and less outrage

Everything pretty much boils down to two opposing forces: Love and Fear

I am solely in charge of my life

I have very deep feelings

I spend most of my time in my head

It is hard for me to trust other people

It is hard for me to trust myself

The greatest miracle that could ever happen to me would be a change in my own perception

I am deeply connected to the fabric of reality

YOUR CURRENT EMOTIONAL SPECTRUM: How frequently do you experience the following thoughts or emotions?
Shame - I am humiliated and embarrassed about certain parts of who I am and things I have done

Guilt - I am to blame for things that go wrong - I often feel responsible for other people's mental and emotional pain

Apathy - I am so discouraged with certain areas of my life that I just don't care much about anything any more

Grief - I have many regrets that often weigh me down

Fear/Anxiety - I frequently worry that I am going to lose important things in my life

Desire - I strongly want things that I currently do not have

Anger - It really annoys me that things are not better than they are -- I hate it

Pride - A lot of my close family and friends are wrong about so many things -- it's annoying when they aren't aware of how wrong they are

Courage - It's hard to admit that there are things I don't know -- but I'm committed to learn the truth about myself, even if that means I'm wrong

Neutrality - I'm not going to take sides in an argument -- things can get complicated and I trust that everything will work itself out in the end

Willingness - I feel optimistic that whatever happens will turn out for the ultimate good, whether I really can understand that all or not

Acceptance - I forgive myself and others for mistakes we have made -- it's just an unavoidable part of life - I give everyone the benefit of the doubt

Reason - It is possible to logically understand why things are the way that they are

Love - I respect and admire myself and others most of the time

Joy - I respect and admire myself and others all of the time, unconditionally. Nothing can knock me out of this space of deep gratitude and appreciation for all aspects of life
