#51 Dr. Michael Reddy, Songs, Family Constellations and Shamanism

Dr. Michael Reddy

On July 11, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Michael J. Reddy to “Shattered Reality Podcast.” We started the show with two of the entertaining “Keynoter” songs that Michael has written and sung at several professional conferences to help set themes and introduce main speakers. They are both about current changing paradigms.

Then we turned to Michael’s practice of Family Constellation Work. As he says, “there are two kinds of trauma—the one you experience yourself, and the sort you inherit from parents and ancestors who could not clear it themselves.” This heritable form of trauma is supported increasingly now by epigentics, but it remains present in and passes down through a psychic, transgenerational family system. He maintains that left over loyalties to unresolved issues in your birth family’s past can shape your life for the worse and that constellation work clears these. Michael credits the work with saving his life in 2008.

Michael’s book on the subject is Health, Happiness & Family Constellations, How Ancestors, Family Systems and Hidden Loyalties Shape Your Life and What You Can Do About It. To see what a constellation looks like, check out the 15 minute video at www.tinyurl.com/constellation3d.

Finally we discussed Michael’s 7 year apprenticeship with native and mixed blood indigenous teachers from 1986-93. One of these teachers was the late Sun Bear, a controversial Ojibwe elder who espoused sharing the traditional medicine with all races. Our co-host Fahrusha also had an interesting experience with Sun Bear when he visited the yoga studio she attended. In shamanic terms, successful constellations start to look like divination followed by sympathetic magic. Michael can be contacted through www.reddyworks.com, michael@reddyworks.com.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke to Shattered Reality Podcast. She has written three books on American Indians and their experiences with Star People and Sky People. They are Encounters With Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians, Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica and More Encounters with Star People: Urban American Indians Tell Their Stories. She is also the author of twelve charming children’s’ books  and the best-selling academic text: Sisters in the Blood: The Education of Women in Native America.

It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Clark about the many experiences she has personally chronicled through direct meetings with American Indians of many different tribes. Star People are part of the oral history of many indigenous peoples in North America and around the world. Those who are interested in ufology from a Euro-Centric point of view would be well advised to consider a slightly different perspective. It is fascinating how the actual experiences are quite similar but sometimes the experiencer’s frame of reference and cultural context molds what he or she takes away from the contact with the Star People.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are pleased and excited to welcome John B. Alexander, Ph.D. to “Shattered Reality”. In the intro to our podcast “paradigm shifting” is prominently mentioned and Dr. Alexander is nothing if not a paradigm shifting individual! His life is so varied and fascinating that it would have taken many more hours to ask him about all of his interests.

Dr. Alexander has written an engrossing book, UFOs, Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities dealing with his adventures in attempting to find out from the inside what the government knows about UFOs. He contends that disclosure has already taken place, UFOs are unarguably real but humanity is asking the wrong questions. His book is comprehensive and well written with a great many dates and details. Dr. Alexander has written a number of other engaging books which can be accessed at his website.

Born in New York, Dr. Alexander entered the army in 1956. He commanded a Special Forces A team in Viet Nam and Thailand and started the Advanced Theoretical Physics Project studying UFOs while still in the Army. After he retired from the Service with the rank of Colonel of Infantry, he worked in the field of non-lethal weaponry at Los Alamos  National Labs. He has a Ph.D. in Thanatology, the scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families. He is also involved with studying shamanism around the world. There is so much more we would have liked to ask Dr. Alexander. Hopefully he will come back to speak with us again.
