This week on Voices of Courage, Ken D. Foster is joined by Jaya Jaya Myra, a research scientist turned natural health advocate who is known as the “Wellness Lifestyle Expert,” and Beau Williams, an American poet currently living in Dublin, Ireland, to discuss the courage to make positive changes in your life and realize your divine nature.
Ken D. Foster opens the show by identifying the pandemic as not just a shutdown of the world, but an awakening for everyone to reevaluate their souls and life paths. Throughout the pandemic, many realized that there is more to life than what we are living, essentially “waking up” our lives. We may ask ourselves what is stopping us from tuning into the deepest part of our soul, thus not realizing our divine nature. Ken states that it is imperative what we reclaim ourselves and our souls. Courage comes from the heart, but sometimes there is fear in trying something new, meaning we must practice conscious release.
The next segment opens with the introduction of the episode’s first guest, Jaya Jaya Myra, a scientist turned motivational and health speaker. Myra speaks about her previous struggles with fibromyalgia, and how she had healed herself with the help of holistic medicine, turning away from traditional western medicine. Without discovering her meditative path, she would not have been able to move forward with her life and career. She continues to stress the importance of meditation, and how its powers in her life have helped her in ways that other forms of medicine have not been able to. The more people that you help, the less problems and more peace you will have in your life.
The third segment continues the conversation with best-selling author Jaya Jaya Myra as they begin a deepdive into her new meditative process, the W.E.L.L. Method. She speaks about realizing that she was able to heal her chronic illness because her mindset was different than others. The W.E.L.L. Method allows customers to customize their plan based on their own lifestyle, while still giving them something to work and strive for. The W.E.L.L. Method is an acronym, the W standing for “Work Life Harmony”, which exemplifies the synergy in our lives that results in harmony in our lives, perhaps one daily routine that helps multiple aspects of your life. Replacing an old habit with a new habit is the only way to change certain parts of our lives.
The final segment opens with the introduction of Beau Williams, a poet who speaks to controversial issues through poetry. Beau speaks about what poetry means to him and how it has shaped his life. He speaks about the inspiration behind his new book, and how moving to Ireland to complete a residency at a college inspired him to write 100 pages of poetry, 50 of which made it into his new book. Beau performs a moving excerpt of poetry from his new book. He continues to explain how poetry has shaped his life, allowing him to find a connection between everyone through words. Beau gives advice to those who want to be poets, revealing that anybody can do it, reminding listeners to not be scared of writing bad poetry and not being afraid of being vulnerable. Beau ends by sharing his philosophy of poetry, which is to be vulnerable. Poetry is what one can do to access their mind, heart, and what is going on in the world. Jaya Jaya Myra returns to share her message to the world, which is that purpose is what created everything in our life, so continue to follow our purpose. Beau also shares his message, reminding viewers that they are “amazing”.
