The Mary Mac Show | Coronavirus | Perspective of Teen Olivia Moody

The Mary Mac Show PodcastThis week we look at how our teenagers are dealing with being quarantined at home and what they think about this pandemic.

I have the good fortune to know Olivia Moody, who is my neighbor and an exceptional young lady. Her heart is always in the right place, doing wonderful things to help lift the spirits of all those she meets.

I wanted to learn what Olivia was feeling and thinking about this unprecedented time in our lives and she graciously agreed to share her perspective.

In Episode 21, I tell you what she has shared about her life now and how different is it since the lockdown began. You are in for a real treat!

On the podcast, I promised to share the beautiful note she wrote and secretly left for all her neighbors at their doorstep.

Below is her note:

“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” Zig Ziglar

Thank you Olivia for your thoughtful and caring gift to all of us!

Tapping To Transform Your Life | Learning the Emotional Freedom Technique

Have you ever wished you could find a way to calm your emotions and pain without drugs or alcohol or other mind-altering substances?

Well, I asked myself that question for years, suffered in silence and then in the mid-1990’s I learned of an amazing process called The Emotional Freedom Technique, created by Gary Craig, which has given me so much leverage against all the craziness this world dishes out on a regular basis.

Starting Monday, February 24th, 2020, the annual Emotional Freedom Technique/EFT or Tapping Summit will begin an online ten-day summit which is free to join.

Simply click on the above link, sign up with first name and email, and you will learn what this is all about. Yes, it may look and sound silly, but what do you care?

If this is something that will help you deal with all the emotional and physical pain of grieving the death of a loved one, isnt’t it worth your time to check it out?

And EFT is not only for grieving. You can use it for anything that you may be struggling with. From limiting beliefs, to weight loss, to financial challenges, it will work for you.

So take this link and make this happen for yourself each evening. It will be one of the most important teachings you ever take advantage of for both yourself and everyone you love, even your children and teens.

Listen to Episode 12, which I published a little earlier this week (Friday instead of Sunday) so you could spend the weekend learning about it and prepare your week accordingly.

On the podcast, I explain everything.

So go listen now.

The Mary Mac Show | When Someone Famous Is Sick or Has Died

The Mary Mac Show PodcastExperiencing the death of a significant person in our life is extremely difficult. But what if our grief is directed toward someone we don’t personally know?

In Episode 10, Mary honors Alex Trebek who has been battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer since March, 2019, Rush Limbaugh who announced his advanced stage lung cancer diagnosis on February 3, 2020 and Kobe Bryant, who along with eight others including his 13 year-old daughter, Gianna, was killed on January 26, 2020 in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

Others might make us feel we don’t have a right to feel the way we do, but this is nonsense. If we have followed the careers of these individuals and they have brought insight, education and entertainment into our lives, we can have feelings of sadness, even shock, when our hero is stricken by a significant illness or dies too soon.

Alex Trebek has hosted Jeopardy for over thirty years and it is one of the most successful game shows of all time.

Hosting the most successful radio talk show, with an audience of 25 million people who tune in each weekday for three hours to hear him, Rush Limbaugh has hosted his signature The Rush Limbaugh Show also for over three decades sharing his political commentary.

Kobe Bryant, a professional basketball player, led his team, the Los Angeles Lakers, to five championship seasons and won gold medals on two USA Olympic basketball teams.

All three men were philanthropists who gave to others less fortunate than themselves for decades, often in secret.

It is natural to want to cheer on successful people and live vicariously through them. When we watch and listen to them on a frequent basis, we feel a solid connection to them. They become part of our lives.

The Mary Mac Show | Preparing for Christmas and Hanukkah

The Mary Mac Show PodcastIn Episode 2, I delve into how to best prepare yourself for the year-end holidays, Christmas and Hanukkah.

The very best thing you can do for yourself is to consider what you are capable of, what brings you joy, how to decrease stress surrounding gifts, decorating, baking, invitations, etc.

What you did last year or in years past, may not be practical this year. It may just be too much for you and that’s alright.

I also discuss how to talk to family and friends to discuss how they can help you at this time.

Announcing The Mary Mac Show | Understanding Your Grieving Heart After a Loved One’s Death

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

After much thought and many months of research and education of how to create a podcast, my show is finally here.

Decades ago I thought it would be wonderful to have a radio show on the grieving process after someone had died. I looked into it a few times and each time the cost was exorbitant.

As years passed and podcasting came about, I considered this media as a much better alternative for many reasons.

First, whatever I created could be hosted online forever for a much lesser charge.

Secondly, the work I did would be accessable to everyone, anywhere in the world they may be.

Thirdly, as time goes on, and a newly bereaved individual finds The Mary Mac Show, they will be able to start at the beginning or jump around to the episode which resonates with them for that period of time in their grieving process.

And lastly, it gave me a place to speak with the hurting directly, easily, intimately and share my over three decades of knowledge and lifelong pain from my own grief experiences.

So I’ve worked long days and nights over the last few months learning all I needed to know about how to set up a podcast. There is so much to learn!

The first person that needs thanking is Kayleigh Hanlin, co-Founder of Empowered Minds whom I met at a conference in September. Her organization helps children to live a life of self-love, self-acceptance and self-confidence through workshops and using their book The J.O.Y. Journal (Just Be You)!

She graciously introduced me to her cousin Justyn Bostick and his podcast Creating The Game. Justyn helped guide me through the podcast process and we had a wonderful conversation which led to an interview on his podcast.

Although I’ve never met them, I’d also like to thank Pat Flynn, whose site Smart Passive Income includes his podcasts The SPI Show and The Ask Pat Show. His videos on podcasting are outstanding.

John Lee Dumas‘ podcast, Entrepreneurs On Fire or Fire Nation, also has a detailed course on podcasting which was invaluable to me.

Yet the most important person to acknowledge is my David. His support and encouragement through these very long days made this possible. He listened through all the struggles, offered advice, and stayed awake till all hours of the night while I worked on the computer to create this baby. I am truly blessed to have him in my life. Thank you so much, David.

To all who helped my podcast become a reality, I appreciate your generosity of spirit.

Go to The Mary Mac Show to listen to my welcome podcast and learn more!

P.S. It is important to start with Episode 1 and work your way through. I have a method to my madness in that I incorporate several exercises within the first number of episodes which are foundational so even when the holidays have passed, please start from the beginning. Thank you.
