Your Life Matters!
The Soul Connection Podcast, with Junie Swadron
Welcome! The Soul Connection Podcast will inspire you to step into your power, and know that no matter what your history has been, no matter how awesome or how tarnished, your life matters, and you have what it takes to succeed in life — on your terms!
That’s what my guest speakers are all about, and when I speak with them soul to soul, we see how we are so connected to one another. Even when we come from different lands, cultures, languages, and histories . . . in our hearts, we are truly one.
My podcast guests are people who have transcended hurdles and hardships to now honour their life journey — all of it — knowing that every day is sacred, every day a blessing, an opportunity to discover, grow, give thanks, and give back.
My guests seek out the gifts and lessons in life’s challenging circumstances, enabling them to learn and grow. Some gifts come wrapped with ribbons and bows, others with two-by-fours — not at all desirable — yet it is these that often carry the greatest treasures of all! They then go on to show others, each in their own unique way, how to do the same.
It is my wish that every episode inspires you to see the best in yourself that is reflected through the speaker’s experience, which could be relatable to your own. Look for the similarities, look for what’s possible, even if up to now, you weren’t sure. Expect aha moments. Expect to feel inspired, uplifted, and enlivened as you move forward in your day.
The Soul Connection Podcast is the antidote to anything that makes you feel you don’t matter. In fact it is the Elixir of Creative Expression at its inspired best — here to empower everyone who listens.
It’s Your Turn to Show Up, Stand Up, Live it Up, and be unapologetically YOU!

Junie’s Musings, Reflections, and Deliberations
In this first episode of Junie’s Musings, Reflections, and Deliberations I read from a journal entry Christmas Eve, 1981. “I just lit a candle and said a prayer for the people in Poland . . . ” I compare what is going on today by those holding power in the political arenas to that of 40 years ago when the entry was written — that little, if anything, has changed. It was written for a sociology paper. I begin the paper from this heart-centred plea to an intellectual approach for a university assignment — and at the end realize that the stance I took was that of one who feels powerless to change the horrors of the world. I shifted that opinion before submitting the paper . . . and have lived my life ever since as one who refuses to be a victim of outer circumstances. My life mission is helping others to do the same, to find their voice, to speak their truth, to stand up for personal and human rights.
