Lessons in Life from a War Child with Chaker Khazaal

Join us Thursday, August 11th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and Chaker Khazaal. 

Chaker Khazaal
Regardless of our race, culture, creed, or where in the world we live, all humans have one thing in common: we all face the possibility of having to face a misfortunate or tragic event in our lives.

The fact is, wherever we live—east, west, north or south, small town or urban sprawl—none of us are immune from natural disasters—fire, flood, hurricanes, avalanches, volcanic eruptions, and tornadoes are possibilities that can threaten, devastate, and transform our lives in an instant.

For the more than 60 million refugees living in our world today, however, tragedy and misfortune have transcended possibility to become brutal fact.

At a time when the narrative of world events contains so much hatred, barbarity, and inhumanity, how do we hold on to the decent human values we were raised with – like compassion, support, respect and love?

How does a human being who has been driven from their home, separated from their family, divested of all their belongings and deprived of all human rights survive with their faith in the law, in justice, and in the goodness of their fellow man intact?

According to my guest today, the answer is that one has to remain a dreamer while becoming a fighter for a better life. And that can only happen with love, support, and remembering that all of us, at any time, face the possibility of misfortune.

Born in 1987 to second-generation Palestinian parents, Chaker Khazaal – author, speaker, reporter, and Huffington Post contributor – grew up in Bourj el-Barajneh refugee camp, in his host country Lebanon, during the Lebanese Civil War.

With patience, persistence and a sense of hope, he applied for a university scholarship in any country he was allowed to enter while holding a Travel Document for Palestinian Refugees. When Canada reached out, it set in motion a chain of events beyond his wildest imagination.

At seventeen years of age, he was honored with the prestigious Global Leader of Tomorrow Award from Toronto’s York University, acknowledging his strong academic standing and leadership skills. Now a citizen – a dream come true – Chaker Khazaal is proud to call Canada home.

Having experienced first-hand the humiliation of ‘displacement,’ Chaker is a strong advocate for refugees, and aspiring writers from all countries. Not one to forget his heritage, he has traveled to camps throughout the Middle East, speaking to refugees living in conflict zones. Expanding awareness through education and subsequent employment for refugees, his novels and articles humanize external conflicts. He enjoys capitalizing on strategic opportunities. “Work hard and where you once felt displaced, take the time to explore avenues that make you feel welcome.”

A savvy communicator, he has spoken at a number of platforms including United Nations Headquarters, HuffPost Live, Google San Francisco, msnbc’s Road Map, International Youth Conference (Bahrain), and the launch of the 8th Arab Youth Survey. Addressing global displacement, Chaker’s powerful messages focus on the rise of terrorist acts, the ongoing unrest in the Middle East, and the importance of giving opportunities to the youth. He also speaks on other topics like social media and the process of writing.

His highly anticipated interviews, books, and articles reach an international audience.
In November 2015, Chaker was named Esquire Man of the Year at Man At His Best Awards held in Dubai.

Finding Stability In Unstable Times with Bill Ayling

Join us Thursday, August 4th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and Bill Ayling. 

Bill Ayling
The world is changing. While there is nothing new in that, what appears to be unsettling for many is the sudden acceleration of the pace at which change is taking place.

Unfortunately, where many are feeling it most keenly is in the economics, institutions and societal structures.

Many have been exposed to humanity’s changing nature through a generation of children who are either on an evolutionary fast track or have popped in from somewhere very different to Earth.
From finance, technology and information, to geopolitics, the environment, and the mass movement of individuals displaced by war, poverty, and violence on an unprecedented scale—structures and systems that once seemed solid, true, and dependable are now showing themselves to be anything but.

Nothing makes sense any more, nothing is behaving in the way it should. Our external world is changing much faster than our existing belief patterns, mindsets and emotional reference points are able to accommodate, and it’s filling people with intense anxiety, stress, and fear.

So how do we find stability in a world that is revealing itself as far from stable? How do we navigate the shifting tides of a world that’s in the full flood of transition and still stay sane? Where do we find our comfort and security when we’re being forced to take a collective step into the unknown?
Join Sandie and economist turned bio-resonance technology pioneer and therapist, Bill Ayling as they discuss how to find stability in unstable times.

Topics include:
*   What, specifically, is triggering the acceleration in our evolution?
*   How technological advances are challenging the existing economic paradigm
*   Who’s really controlling the economic levers?
*   Free Energy—who’s got it? Who’s suppressing it? And why don’t they want us to have it?
*   How can we let go of outdated mindsets and belief patterns and manage our thoughts and emotions
*   Why change doesn’t have to signify instability
*   And more…

About the Guest Bill Ayling

BILL AYLING is co-founder of ACreativeSpace. A unique UK-based business that uses the latest bio-resonance technology to help people build lives they love. Bill went straight from studying a Masters in Economics to working in the financial sector in the city of London. His career spanned seventeen years and took him all over the world, including two years in Tokyo. Working as a credit trader for banks including HSBC, Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan, Bill managed some of the largest sterling credit transactions of that time.

The father of two children Bill quit the City in 2004 having discovered the world of alternative medicine, specifically kinesiology, whilst searching for an answer to his son’s learning challenges. Inspired by the results and excited by the potentials he has devoted his life to exploring the possibilities presented by frequency and consciousness technology.
The economist in Bill could not help but see the potential impact of these technologies on all sectors of society and how disruptive they could be to established structures. At the same time, the therapist in him saw the importance of maintaining some degree of stability in what are likely to be very disruptive times.

Whilst ACreativeSpace continues to help children and their families, there is now a greater focus on working with individuals looking to expand their awareness as well as with businesses looking to embrace the current shift in technology and consciousness, which is difficult to ignore.
In addition to presenting online seminars designed to support parents and individuals seeking information and guidance on the rapid evolution that is taking place in humanity and society today, Bill also writes regular commentaries for ACreativeSpace’s newsletter on these changing times.
