    As I begin two new classes which are announced below, I am reminded of the essential nature of a "community of support" as one is making changes or achieving goals in life. I reflect back that every turn on the path of my life was accompanied by someone who believed in me. We are never able to maintain a new habit or way of seeing ourselves without the support of people who can celebrate us just the way we are, warts and all. Hear two Prosperity Plus class participants talk about the risks they took to live prosperously and the unconditional love they received from the class community that fueled that courage.

    Paul Clark became very dedicated to prosperity classes and the power of community after his first course when he noticed how much easier it felt to believe in himself when others celebrated him.

    Kristi Curry shares: "After I created Heidi's new website (www.heidialfrey.com), she called me 'an entrepreneur's best friend.' I love that! When I entered my first Prosperity class, my belief in my dream was very low. Heidi and my classmates saw the value of my vision and held it for me. I am so grateful! I'm continuing to pursue my dream and am excited about all the opportunities that are unfolding for me!"

    There is not an activity that is more transparent than prayer. It is the opening of the Heart and the holding of a belief that one's life is connected to Infinite Intelligence. This All-ness is called by many names: God, Spirit, Creator, but by any name, it is the Source of Life.  
     
    The Center for Spiritual Living in Kansas City, Missouri, is offering an opportunity for Kansas City to come together in prayer in the month of January to observe the power of prayer. They are taking the crime statistics from January 2012, praying specifically for peace in our town in January, and observing the statistics at the end of the month. The invitation to pray will be every day, but a prayer service will be held every Monday night at CSL at 7 p.m. All faiths are welcome because the energy of prayer is not about a faith as much as it is about an intention.

    Find out more about this peace-filled mission at www.prayforkc.com. Mark Hayes, the chairperson of the Pray for KC committee, will discuss the mission and the dynamics of this prayer project. Remember: Prayer doesn't change God—prayer changes you!!! Be the change that you want to see ... and join us in prayer:)

    So many folks confuse security with predictability, stagnation, lack of creative flow, and resisting change and growth. Join Rev. Heidi today for a transparent talk with a man who proved the place of "true security" is not in the outer but being committed to listening and following one's heart. Wilson Smith did that literally; he'd worked for years as a security guard (the pun is intended)! After a prosperity course at Unity with yours truly, Wilson knew his life was too precious to choose outer "security" over "inner knowing." Wilson summoned up all the vitality of his soul and resigned from a job that was not his anymore. He is now busy creating a one-man show called Saturday Night on a Dead End Street. He has also resurrected his poignant and moving poetry, about which he'd carried a story given to him by others that his poetry was too "out there." One of the many things I've learned from Wilson is "out there" is the only way the unique, irreplaceable you is supposed to live!

    This episode will inspire you to take off one more layer of false belief and release the imprisoned splendor that is you! Gary Malkin is a man committed to changing the world one heart at a time. And his path to that work has involved deeply revealing his own soul. At age 5, Gary recognized his gift of playing the piano. And even then he became aware of the power of music to make people calm and peaceful. He went on to fame and fortune, writing and performing music for film and television, winning Emmys and many other industry accolades. His flourishing career seemed to be enough until Gary had a bicycle crash in 1998. In a double-whammy, he badly injured his hand (not great for a piano player), and at the same time his marriage started to crumble. These events led him to get naked and wake up to a deeply held belief that outer "success" was somehow more important than the inner "knowing." Gary's new focus became creating music that was inspired by the emotion of love. Gary will share his music with us, and we'll hear his amazing story of transparency, vulnerability and authenticity. Learn more about his work at www.wisdomoftheworld.com. Gary has also written the score of the new transformational film, Thrive. Don't miss your life ... Let's Get Naked!

In 2007, a bicycle accident gave this spiritual seeker the physical crisis that at last awakened his truest passion: to remind people of their Oneness with all things. Through this life/death circumstance, the film I AM was born. Listen in for a revealing and transparent interview with filmmaker and authentic soul Tom Shadyac.
