Activating the Heart’s Intelligence: How to Reconnect to Your Inner Wisdom with Alethea Black and Howard Martin

Original Air Date Wednesday, February 5, 2019 

Where does our intuition come from? Is it based on hormone production in our physical bodies or is it something more? Is it quantum energy that allows us to alter our consciousness by fusing our electromagnetic fields with the healing resources of the universe? What if we could transform ourselves mentally, physically, and emotionally through our hearts? To bring to light our cardinal powers and to test the boundaries of our radiant energy, Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with Alethea Black and Howard Martin about how quantum mechanics changes the game of being human. Alethea Black shares bits from her new book, You’ve Been So Lucky Already and her theory on the past, present, and future. And, Howard Martin describes how our hearts work as our personal GPS, guiding us through our connection with the universe.

Alethea Black — Listening to Inner Wisdom::
  • After setting up an idyllic life, Alethea was taken over with mysterious symptoms that robbed her of joy. [2:04]
  • Her new book, You’ve Been So Lucky Already, includes intimate details of Alethea’s journey through losing everything. [7:14]

Alethea Black was born in Boston and graduated from Harvard in 1991. Her father was a mathematician, and for a long time, she believed her name, the Greek word for truth, was his way of tipping his cap to the idea of absolutes. Then one day her mother overheard her and said: “No, we got your name from a TV show.” (Judd, for the Defense.) Her first book, a short story collection called I Knew You’d Be Lovely, is in its seventh printing and was chosen as a Barnes and Noble ‘Discover’ selection. Her new memoir, You’ve Been So Lucky Already, is now available. A three-time MOTH StorySLAM champion, Black lives with her miniature dachshund, Josie, in LA County, California..
