SoundBits: Having Triumphed Over Depression, Elizabeth Grant Can’t Help Helping Others Do the Same

Some people were born to dedicate their own lives to improving the lives of their fellow men and women. While we can’t say for sure that Elizabeth “The Quantum Coach” Grant falls into that category, she sure seems to be an excellent candidate. As host of The Elizabeth Grant Show, the Chicago native helps listeners apply universal laws of quantum physics to spur happiness and prosperity from the inside out. That said, let’s get to the business of learning how to live better lives.

Give us a 15-second pitch for your show – why should listeners tune in?

I am told by nearly every guest, “Wow, that was such an interesting interview.” That really sums up my approach – which is to bring personal-growth tools to listeners, while cutting through the fluff. I strive to bring depth and new angles to topics you’ve heard about over and over but that never really sunk in before.

CAPTION: Elizabeth: Singing and cinematic aspirations on the side.

Elizabeth: Singing and cinematic aspirations on the side.

Tell us two things listeners would be surprised to learn about you?

(1) That I struggled with depression for most of my adult life until a few years ago, when I started applying the techniques I now teach to others. (2) That, in addition to being a spiritual mentor, I’m also a screenwriter and singer/songwriter.

Who’s your broadcasting hero?

Lin Brehmer of WXRT-FM here in Chicago. Who doesn’t love Lin?

If you could book any person on earth as a guest on your show, who would it be and why?

Esther Hicks of The Secret fame, because I have so many questions to ask her about quantum physics and the laws of attraction. She is the ultimate “unguru.” I’ve been very fortunate – Mariel Hemingway, No Matter What! author Lisa Nichols and many others have been guests on my show, not because I asked them, but because they asked me. Who knows? Maybe some day my phone will ring and it will be Esther.

As we speak, what are you wearing?

Pajamas! I’m drinking my decaf and thinking of working out soon.

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done while in the middle of hosting your show?

When I hosted Lisa Nichols, both she and a listener popped up on my switchboard as the opening music began. I didn’t know who was who. I unmuted both of them and asked Lisa for her area code, but she gave me the area code of the other listener by accident. So I muted her and unmuted the other caller! Then I asked “Lisa” a question, but we couldn’t hear her answer. I was embarrassed, but Lisa couldn’t have been nicer. It’s moments like those when you understand why Frasier needed Roz.

‘The Secret’ Teacher Joe Vitale: ‘Turn Off the Mainstream Media!’

It’s no secret that millions of people the world over – including Oprah Winfrey – have raved about the 2006 self-help flick The Secret.

Personally, we’ve been too busy to watch it – or read its companion best- selling book, Law of Attraction – so we’re not recommending it one way or the other.

"The mainstream media's job is to report worst-case scenarios," Joe (above) tells us. "If you're not a master of your own mentality, it'll go into your head."

But we can tell you that some we know swear by its belief, which holds that people’s thoughts dictate the reality of their lives.

That in turn means, as so-called New Thought writers will tell you, if you really want some- thing and truly believe getting it is possible, you will get it.

Today on The Masters Gathering Teleseminar, five such “personal-transformation” authors – include Joe Vitale and Hale Dwoskin, both of whom are featured in The Secret – come together to expound on their beliefs, particularly in light of the global economic crisis.

“We’re in this recession where five million people recently lost their jobs – so fighting stress is a challenge. There’s never been more disease or diabetes or detachment or depression.  How do you help people to break out of that state?” host Jim Kwik asks Joe.

“I tell them that the number-one thing to do – and if they do it, they will resolve just about every issue you mentioned – is to turn off the mainstream media,” says Joe, whose latest book is titled Expect Miracles.

“I just did a workshop and a realtor friend of mine came up to me and she said she was prosperous. She was closing these huge deals in a month when everybody was saying it was the blackest month – the worst time in history since the Great Depression,” he continues.

“I looked at her and I said, ‘What’s your secret? How are you doing so well when all the other brokers are saying, ‘I can’t sell anything.’?

“She said, ‘I’ve turned off the news.’ She quit feeding her mind all of the things that cause stress.

“If you’re listening to the mainstream news, its job is to go find or create and then report on the worst-case conditions possible. And if your mind isn’t prepared to block that, it’ll go into your head and the next thing you know, you are stressed out.”
