    Amanda, It’s so powerful and encouraging to hear all these voices from their life experiences. I’m a 20 year old girl who is slowly becoming a woman. I am truly happy to tell you all of these interviews are supporting my growing point of view on this journey I am facing right now. I’m glad that you and your team are working on this mission. I send you all my love and gratitude. Thank You and God Bless You.

    Thank you so much for introducing me to Glenda Bailey on the show! She is inspiring,, genuine and a little bit magical : ) Amanda being able to be vulnerable is the light that shines, it’s beautiful.

    Such a shame that she has now allowed herself to be marketed like a cheap ho.

    Miley – that is..
    Can you talk to her Amanda? Maybe talk to her about it all…I think she needs help and someone like you to tell her that twerking with that Thicke brain head is not cool.
    Thanks Amanda & keep up all the great work.

    What if fairy tales are metaphors about our deepest nature? What if every character in them represents each different side of our spiritual-psychological being? What if princes and princesses are different strengths we have, say our feminine (emotional, nourishing) masculine (action-wil ) being, and we need to ‘marry’ both within ourselves? Or the prince represents our human ego and the princess our soul, liberated after many struggles and trials? It’s all about an awakening process. I read some of this possible interpretations and was fascinated. These are stories written ages ago, transmitted orally and meant to be for adults, back when humanity was in it’s childhood. I also read we need to know about this when we are reading them to our children, since they will perceive our perhaps wrong impression on them and the more deep wise concepts they contain will not pass through as they are. Each story is a journey of a soul from birth to maturity and the inner struggles we face along the way. Did you know that in the original Cinderella the prince takes the first sister with him on the horse and a bird tells him to look at her feet, because she cut her toes to fit the shoes and now they bleed? Then he takes the second sister with him but the bird tell him, she cut her heel to fit the shoes. He goes back and gets Cinderella and the bird approves. The meaning of this is that if you “live standing on your toes” would be too much into the spiritual world, not present or grounded enough, and “on your heels” would be too much in a material world. Whereas in our lives we need to balance both states, being both part of what we are, a spiritual and a human being. If we don’t read it with a compressed stomach full of fear, children would understand these images as so. The prove being, when you read that a wolf ate Red Riding Hood’s granny and then the man cut it’s stomach and she came out in one piece they understand it, they don’t think of teeth and thorn flesh. They get it. Interesting, right? To be studied, I say. Thank you for your talks and to allow dialogue! 🙂 (sorry if my english is too simple)
