Hi, My name is Richard Schweizer. I am a Patient Ambassador for the Schizophrenia Research Institute, based in Sydney. I have had schizophrenia since 2003, at which time I was incredibly fearful, saw delusions of reference and imagined voices in my head.Luckily I have responded well to available medications and suffer few symptoms, although I do get occasionally anxious or depressed and I sleep a great deal.

I am currently writing a PhD at Sydney University about the sociology of schizophrenia. I am studying part-time. I also have a deep and abiding interest in Australian politics – my bookshelf is full of books on the issue. I lean to the left, though I am aware that everyone has weaknesses and foibles. My dream, before developing schizophrenia, was to be a policy adviser to an Australian Prime Minister. Now that I am in a different situation I would like to be a mental health advocate for people who sorely need better representation.
Outside my scholarly and vocational activities I enjoy writing songs, listening to music, jazz, reading, seeing cinema and presenting a radio show on Eastside Radio 89.7fm.

Read vibrations, transform lives, align energy desire & intent. She reconnects you to your soul purpose and inner Guidance, present empowering stories & people on radio, make films which inspire us to be all we can imagine. Empowers and facilitates Self-Empowerment and change for the better.”I am all fired up about this era of the difference makers and watching people come alive with creative life changing ideas and self-empowerment. I love seeing people transform the way they think about themselves and go on to transform others. I just live for those Ah Haaaaaaa! moments when I speak with people.Life is changing rapidly and if we don’t keep up with our dreams we fall into those dull routines of our limiting habitual patterned responses which say, “I am not enough, I don’t make a difference and I can not have what I truly desire.”We are living in NEW times and the spiritual education and transformative energy available today makes miracles a common occurrence. Amazing spontaneous healing is available and becoming more common place. More people then ever before are allowing their dreams to manifest. We are genius creators and can be, do and have whatever we truly desire when we tap into the energy within us, which is the same energy that creates worlds. I relish guiding visionaries like you to find your calling and realize your visions.I believe the keys to living a JOY filled, Vital and Self-Empowered life is an optimistic attitude, the willingness take responsibility for our energy and our actions. To Love expansively and receive Love in return. To Forgive ourselves and the past and celebrate all we have lived, doing things that light us up, tap us into our brilliance and allow our creativity to boundlessly flow. Having an unquenchable sense of humour. Being OPEN to whatever or whomever comes our way, being unapologetic about who we are, saying YES to everything we are living and drinking in as much of life as we can.”KAren’s intention with her radio show is to bridge the gap from dis-empowenment to empowerment. When people embrace transformational work and then listen to the media which beats the drum of all that can and does go wrong in the world, this can create doubt and discord within. The media is a hypnotic tool which is responsible for  perpetuating many of the limiting ideas people have about life and what is possible. When wanting to effect change it is important to focus our powerful attention on messages which promote well being, transformation and possibility.
