counseling & energy management training
Welcome to the online archive for my radio show, "A Call to Greatness." Check back regularly for new featured shows and information about future airings.
Do you know what life is asking from you in this moment? Do you hide your light behind habits, excuses and limitations? Our true greatness lies, not so much in what we accomplish, but rather, in our ability to love and make empowering choices again and again. Join host, spiritual counselor, psychic and energy trainer Victoria Post and explore the many ways we are called into that greatness as individuals and as a collective. Each week, Victoria and her guests help you identify your own unique calls to greatness and support you in finding the courage and resources you need to follow through. Their stories of healing and hope will sharpen your awareness, touch your soul, and inspire you to see your life differently; their wisdom and grace will give you permission to live the life that calls you.

Open any newspaper, browse any bookstore, turn on your
television we are bombarded by images and stories of
end-of-the-world prophecies. This is a world-wide phenomenon,
reflecting a deep longing within us to be one with God's
spirit, to rise up above our current troubles; to be called
home; to do something other than live our current incarnation.
Victoria interviews Lynnaea Lumbard, depth psychologist,
writer and facilitator of workshops. Most recently, Lynnaea
collaborated with a group of colleagues to create an educational
and entertaining web site, TimesEndProductions.com, exploring
the many beliefs and traditions connected to the "end
of days." Victoria and Lynnaea explore the predominance
of the ascension motif, our relationship to the different
prophecies, and the choices we make here on Earth as a
result. This discussion is not intended to support any
particular belief system, only to explore prophecies that
span many religions and traditions.

To be truly great, we all need to experience some kind
of freedom mostly, the freedom to be ourselves. To be
truly free, we have to know which limitations are real
and which ones are illusions, which ones to accept, and
which ones to transcend. Victoria explores the challenging
journey of finding freedom within limitations. Victoria
says, "I have been blind since birth and have spent a
lifetime overcoming and succumbing to limitations. I have
struggled to know whether to embrace or transcend limitations,
and I know first hand the many emotions that accompany
that process. For years I had leaned on my own stubbornness,
optimism, and sense of humor for strength but it was the
spiritual world that brought peace, comfort and meaning
to it all." Victoria shares inspiring stories and some
very practical techniques for understanding limitations,
and finding freedom in all the wrong circumstances.
Join Victoria as she interviews healer, Greg Schellkun,
who she describes as "a true healer with the biggest,
most amazing hands on the planet!" Greg studied extensively

in California and does many remote healings worldwide.
He is humble, extremely funny, and there is absolutely
nothing "woo-woo" about his work, yet, in his quiet way,
he has brought relief and healing to thousands, for which
he has been recognized and honored within the medical
community. Greg shares some amazing stories from his life
and work. Greg and Victoria explore the nature of healing
itself, the allure of the call to be a healer, and the
many challenges for those who respond. Even if you haven't
been called to this path, you don't want to miss this
show. Greg's presence is a healing in itself, and you
will be left laughing for the rest of the day.

Andrea is an organizational psychologist and hotel owner,
making her unique in the world of executive consulting.

But over time, through a number of setbacks and obstacles,
we often lose much of that initial passion. Tune in as
Victoria interviews America's Dream coach, Marcia Wieder
(dreamcoach.com). Marcia has over 20 years' coaching and
speaking experience, is the author of “Making Your Dreams
Come True”, and is herself a living example of passion
in action. In this lively and empowering show, Marcia
teaches us how to ignite and sustain passion, even in
challenging times. Find out how to handle doubts, setbacks
and limiting beliefs so they become part of your true
greatness. Passion is not just a nice buzz word; it is
essential, whether you need to boost your confidence,
increase your bottom line, or follow through on decisions
you've already made. So call in with your questions and
challenges; the answer is somewhere in your passion!
Sometimes we are called to greatness through crisis or
emptiness. Other times we are called to greatness through
inspiration and success. But most of the time, we live
somewhere in the middle, not aware of any particular calling
or direction. According to Victoria, the question clients
most often ask is: "Am I on the right track?" On this
episode, Victoria explores this critical question with
you, the listener; critical, because it reflects a deep
level of disconnection from ourselves, our instincts and
our own core values. So how do we know when we're on track?
Join Victoria as she helps you identify your own spiritual
compass - that core value or principle that sustains you
in hard times, guides you through doubts and questions,
and always points to home, the source of your deepest
well-being. Victoria also shows you how to read and interpret
the signs you encounter on the road, especially in that
middle ground. So call in with your questions and comments;
your greatness is at stake.
What does it look like when spirituality and politics
meet? Join Victoria as she interviews Father Louis Vitale,
a Franciscan priest with an unwavering commitment to peace

Bene, an organization promoting spirituality and nonviolence.
Victoria and Father Louie discuss the challenges of living
a radical commitment, such as strengthening yourself and
your commitment in the face of setbacks, and finding the
right means to express it. Ever wonder what St. Francis
would say about the world today? Tune in and call in with
your questions, and find out! A Call to Greatness it's
In this lively, unforgettable show, Victoria works with
Barry Goldberg, a professional certified coach, and Christien
King, a computer analyst. Tune in as they guide you through
a dynamic and powerful exercise in self-acceptance. Most
of us live in a small part of our psyche - the rest, including
the whiny, needy, critical, controlling parts and the
brilliant, intuitive, extraordinary parts, we project
out onto the world. They are then reflected back to us
through other people, from those who drive us crazy to
those we put on a pedestal. By reclaiming these projections,
we find real compassion and forgiveness for ourselves
and others. In knowing and accepting ourselves fully,
we are able to change what is no longer working. So call
in and experience more of yourself; learn a skill that
will lead you to wholeness and peace.
