Coming Home to Your True Self with Christine Gutierrez

Have the words, “Look on the bright side!” ever helped you? Advice like this can be more damaging than helpful. The journey towards healing has never been straightforward. Although it's useful to maintain an optimistic outlook, you also have to allow yourself to feel negativity, seek acceptance, and find the strength to come home to your true self with kindness.

In today's episode, Christine Gutierrez will share the importance of understanding the two facets of healing and why feeling your negative emotions is much better than ignoring it altogether. She will also discuss her spiritual journey, the value of kindness and healthy love, working with women of color, and using tools to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. Christine will also talk to us about her new book, I Am Diosa, and how it can help people from different walks of life.

If you're on your journey back to your true self, especially in these crucial times, this episode is for you.

Episode Highlights

Christine's Spiritual Journey

  • Ever since Christine was young, she has always had a deep desire to connect to human suffering, help others who are struggling and make a difference in people's lives.
  • This passion led her to study psychology, philosophy, and mental health counseling.
  • Christine merges her modern therapeutic training with her spiritual path.

On I Am Diosa

  • Working with Diosa, the goddess's energy enabled Christine to realize that God has a feminine face.
  • The concept of Diosa empowered and helped Christine reclaim her true self.
  • For Christine, sharing is the calling of all healers.
  • She was worried that many people might not know what I Am Diosa But choosing and standing up for it as the title of her book, no matter what others might say, gives her a sense of cultural confidence.

What’s Wrong with Overemphasizing Positivity

  • The overemphasis towards keeping a positive attitude all the time is dismissive of the emotions and experiences of those who suffered intense trauma and abuse.
  • It creates a shallow healing process, unrealistic goals, and often discredits and minimizes the feelings and ownership of people's struggles.
  • It's vital to validate different spectrums of emotions and provide spaces to feel it.
  • Overemphasis on positivity can affect your daily life by preventing you from experiencing your full range of emotions.

Advice for Struggling Women

  • Owning your experiences and that you are a victim of someone else's dysfunction can be liberating.
  • "Just don't be a victim" advice is a very condescending way to approach people who experienced intense hardships and trauma.
  • Christine offers a different energetic tone by stating that you don't have to remain stuck in your past.
  • It is your duty to yourself to create a life of happiness despite your past because you're deserving and worthy of it.

The Importance of Kindness to Yourself

  • Christine is not a happy person all the time - she is often reflective and emotional.
  • It's essential to accept who you are, the life you're given, love, and be kind to yourself and your experiences.
  • Combine therapy with outside support and deep soul work to manage your emotions better. Expecting perfection will be harmful in the long run.
  • Healing requires continuous nurturing of enjoying life. It is not a simple before and after scenario.
  • Healing will involve mistakes and relapses – this is normal.

Working with Women of Color

  • Christine's I Am Diosa retreats give women space to share their feelings and situations freely. Also, to try, fail, and get back up again in their healing journey without judgment.
  • The 'medicine' for happiness is within all people.
  • Most of her clients are strong and wise women that were too busy to process their emotions and traumas.
  • Christine's role is to hold and remind them that they're all in this together.

Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Being a newly-married couple, Christine and her husband find it hard at first to pivot their routine amid the ongoing pandemic.
  • Allow yourself to accept that these are crazy times and that you're not alone in this journey.
  • Mental health support has to be accessible to all people during and after the pandemic. Find available resources to help you cope with overwhelming emotions.
  • Christine aims to create a global space for people to connect spiritually through the digital medium.

Ways to Cultivate Healthy Love

  • Love, warmth, and touch are essential tools in reminding clients of their worthiness and power.
  • Become aware of the unhealthy places in your life.
  • Look for the things you can do if you're in a healthy space.
  • Set your non-negotiables.
  • Listen to the full episode to hear specific examples of how to cultivate healthy love in your life.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[04:13] “Working with the goddess, working with Diosa, for me was a moment of realizing that there was a divine face of God. That there was a feminine divine face.”

[06:06] “It was a coming to of my own cultural confidence of being like, it doesn't matter what anyone says, this is my work. And this is going to resonate with who it's meant to resonate with.”

[08:53] “There is no bad or good emotion. There are more difficult emotions to process, of course, and it's about giving ourselves the space to say, ‘Hey, I'm feeling bad. I'm having a shitty day.’”

[17:52] “This is not a simple before and after, right? I'm a living, breathing woman with a sea of emotions, right? I rise and fall like the tide. So therefore that means that I'm allowing myself to constantly look at the places where I can deepen both my healing and my joy.”

[26:02] “I think one of the biggest pieces that we can give ourselves is allowing ourselves to accept and acknowledge that these are some crazy times and that you're not alone.”

Traveling is a joyful exercise when you need inspiration and a break from your routine. Your ability or inability to move impacts your creativity. With the current travel restrictions and civil unrest around the world, no one is immune from getting feelings of uncertainty and anxiety during these trying times.

In today’s episode, Meera Lee Patel gives us a glimpse into her creative process when writing her book, My Friend Fear. She tells us how the pandemic and her pregnancy affected her creative flow. She also shares her stories of overcoming fear by feeling at home with herself, no matter where she is.

If you feel stuck physically, emotionally, and mentally, this episode is for you!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover the magic that could happen when you face your fears.
  2. Learn how you can let go and let life shape itself.
  3. Find out how Meera creates her own calm.

Resources

Episode Highlights

Leaving Your Comfort Zone

  • A New York native, Meera left Brooklyn to work on her second book, My Friend Fear.
  • She realized that she needed to face all her fears to honestly write her book. So she left her job, traveled alone, and worked on being an artist and a writer.
  • Her decision to move to the countryside wasn’t intentional. But in the course of writing her book, she worked at an illustration studio based in Nashville, where she connected with the artist community.
  • Meera never dreamed of living in the countryside. But some things shape themselves when you decide to be open to them.

Feeling at Home Within Yourself

  • Even if you’re afraid, Meera says you should do things that excite you.
  • Your fear of rejection may feel like the worst thing that could happen, but you can overcome this by being yourself and letting people know you.
  • The biggest gift of mindfulness and discernment is finding peace within yourself.

From the City to the Countryside

  • Countryside living offers peace and quiet that is nearly impossible in the city.
  • Under pandemic circumstances, the countryside also offers a lot of space where you can feel free to walk around without encountering others who may be sick.
  • However, living in the countryside makes you feel isolated and lonely.
  • As a city girl, Meera isn’t used to driving, but that’s how you get around in the countryside.

Creativity Requires Calm

  • Living in Nashville got Meera back into her creative flow because she has fewer distractions and a larger space in her home studio.
  • Connecting with your highest self is a challenge when there’s so much frenetic energy, especially when you live in the city.
  • Nature helps shift your perspective, especially when you are feeling anxious.

On Her Pregnancy

  • Being pregnant during the pandemic has negatively affected Meera’s body and emotions, hampering her creative work.
  • The pandemic exposed all possible emotions, including guilt.
  • Meera thinks she still hasn’t processed her feelings of disappointment and anxiety related to the pregnancy.

Nothing Is Permanent

  • Anxiety can be paralyzing because it eliminates the idea that life could be different.
  • When you accept that nothing is permanent, it gives you back some sense of control.
  • Meera also worked hard on accepting the things she can’t control.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[04:55] “When I open myself up to the world, when I'd let somebody see me for who I was, not for who I thought they wanted me to be, I was welcomed.”

[16:55] “In order to be creative and make the work, you need time alone. So much of being a creative is solitude.”

[19:13] “Whatever was cycling in your head and giving you such anxiety, maybe that is a very small part of life and your life and a very small part of what is affecting you in this grander scheme.”

[26:51] “Something that helps me always with my anxiety is remembering that the way I feel right now is temporary. Just like everything else in life, this moment is temporary, and it’s going to pass, and it won’t be like this forever.”

[29:14] “Losing control, and letting go of control, and learning to be okay with that has been really freeing. Instead of making me more anxious that anything can go wrong, instead it makes me feel like, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen. And that means that there is a lot of possibility.’”

About Meera

Meera Lee Patel is an illustrator and writer based in Nashville, Tennessee. Coming from Brooklyn, she began working as an editor at a publishing company after graduating with degrees in English and Journalism & Media Studies. A self-taught artist, her stationery and gift line are inspired by nature and her home country, India.

She published three journals, namely, Start Where You Are, Made Out of Stars, and Create Your Own Calm. Her works encourage self-exploration and help build a practice of introspection through art. Her book My Friend Fear features Meera’s reflections about her fears, thoughtful questions on creativity, and beautiful watercolor paintings.

Episode Highlights

Studying the Bhagavad Gita

  • Richard and Mary published a book called When Love Comes to Light as a practical interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita.
  • When you read the Bhagavad Gita as a guidebook, it provides a lot of teachings you can apply to your life.
  • The world is one organism, and all of us are interconnected.
  • Richard and Mary approach the teachings to learn to look at the context of the situations we encounter.

The Relationship Between Mind & Ego

  • Problems arise when the mind and ego start to work together.
  • The ego wants to be the hero solving problems.
  • The mind makes decisions and guides you in taking action.
  • Mary says that you should determine your motivations to know and decide the appropriate steps to maintain a healthy relationship between your mind and ego.

Waking Up to Your Intelligence

  • We wake up to moments of intelligence every day in different situations.
  • A moment of intelligence would be akin to your gut feelings or what you feel when speaking the truth.
  • It's also a feeling of vulnerability rooted in strength and knowledge of your connection to others.
  • Yoga practices wake up the body so that you start to become more attentive.
  • When you get that feeling, you don’t care whether you’re any more enlightened or not.

On Practicing with Your Ego

  • The ego is the identification with the self as separate.
  • To practice discernment is to bring consciousness to every action or inaction.
  • Richard described that ego is a divine function, but attachment to your ego is not.
  • You can use your ego to learn how to act and do things to get feedback, but don’t identify with it.

Teaching Mindfulness Through a Book

  • The Gita teachings are supposed to be difficult because it asks you to look again and again to learn mindfulness.
  • Mary says that keeping a sense of humor, laughing at your mistakes, and learning to let go are acceptable mindfulness practices.

Dealing with Exhaustion at a Global Scale

  • Finding it difficult to sit with your practice is normal under current circumstances, but you should still show up and do it.
  • Those who have learned yoga and meditation practice in less turbulent times will feel prepared to face the difficulties even though it is sometimes inappropriate.
  • People who haven’t developed their practices before the pandemic will feel exhaustion, fatigue, and fear more strongly than others.

The Gita as a Love Story

  • Mary sees the Bhagavad Gita not as a war story but as a love story about connecting to the divinity within ourselves.
  • Richard says that the book names the enemies like lust, anger, and greed.
  • A war inside the mind is one interpretation of the teachings in the Bhagavad Gita.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[14:07] “It’s a way of learning to look at context. You see things and to look at all the different religious manifestations and to see through them, to what they’re actually trying to accomplish rather than let your ego buy into some formula that makes you superior to others.”

[28:01] “Life is a wave pattern. If you can ride those waves with the ability at any instant to engage, that would be amazing.”

[34:55] “It's an important time to be kind to yourself and to be really careful. And not to be so dogmatic that you become more tight or tuned out from the Other.”

[35:48] “When there’s this genuine sense of connectedness and a genuine concern for the world, the environment, etc, then that’s when it starts to stabilize enough that we take the context of what’s going on and we help see each other see what we can do.”

[38:07] “If you feel like you've been injured by someone else or by a situation and you respond, take the moment, even in just a flash, to really see if your motivation for your action is in line with bigger intentions in life, say, the intention to relieve suffering. Are your motivations self-serving more than they are truly in line with your intention?”

Resources

Episode Highlights

Resonating with Another Person’s Energy

  • Spirit-led connections make people feel safe, especially in a world where there’s not enough of that.

How Grief Made Ace Turn to Yoga

  • Ace experienced traumatic things early in her life. Her mother passed away when she was 19, so Ace had to figure things out on her own.
  • She took her life too seriously because she had to survive.
  • Ace had a job where she had to travel a lot. She did not stay long anywhere, so she thought she did not have to feel for too long.
  • Yoga gave Ace a sense of connection and belonging. It saved her from darkness.

Taking Ownership of Ace’s Name

  • For most of her life, Ace had always been called Alicia. Her aunt called her Lisa.
  • Ace believes when you discover who you are, you start to own the power in your name.

How Yoga Saved Ace’s Life

  • Ace acknowledged the death of her mother only six years after her death.

  • There is so much more to yoga than its physical aspect.
  • Yoga helped Ace find what works for her and be consistent with it.

What Ace Learned About Herself This Quarantine

  • Ace found that she was working way too much and spreading herself thin because she did not want to feel alone.
  • She learned she can be alone in her space and still feel secure. She can be vulnerable yet brave when she asks for help.
  • Ace needs to be consistent in her meditation, yoga practice, and therapy.
  • She can start a business without knowing a thing about it and still succeed.
  • With all the civil uprisings and movements, Ace learned that her voice is a powerful gift. She is here to be a teacher and stop shying away from her gift.

Ace’s Form of Activism

  • Ace realized she did not have to go out and march in protest. She has a different approach to activism.
  • For Ace, activism is empowering people to remember who they are and supporting people of color.
  • Ace also does workshops on grief. She does the things she is good at and improves on them for the greater good of her people.

People’s Perception of Yoga Instructors

  • Some people think yoga instructors are enlightened and have everything figured out.
  • However, yoga instructors are also human beings. Like everyone else, they have things to navigate.
  • Ace does not want to get to the point where she is so enlightened that she cannot learn from anyone anymore.

Ace’s Idea of Freedom

  • When Ace did her first workshop, she did not know what “I am free” meant. She just thought it was something that feels good to say.
  • However, she learned that freedom is being free to change, grow, learn, and love. It also meant having grace in falling and reaching for someone to ask for help.

How the Pandemic Forced Us to Reset

  • Ace likes that she is home more and making her space her own.
  • Since we are all stuck at home, Ace believes we should feel good and improve our surroundings to make them more comfortable.
  • We should acknowledge our emotional and mental situation and talk about them with other people.
  • Ace loves that she can just sit and read a book or watch hours of television shows.

[24:23] “I can still be strong, and I can still be vulnerable, and I can still be brave at the same time when asking for help.”

[27:12] “I learned that my voice is powerful. My voice is beyond this realm, and my light and my gift is beyond. And I'm here to be a teacher and stop shying away from that, stop hiding from my gifts.”

[34:11] “I don't have it all figured out, and neither do you. And that's okay. There's beauty in not having it all figured out because, if you have it all figured out, then what else is there for you to do?”

Episode Highlights

On Being Authentic

 

  • Being authentic now means being grounded and present.
  • Authenticity means committing to staying consistent with your healing.
  • Let your heart exercise your best qualities and get rid of your negativity to experience radical authenticity.

 

 

Sah’s Background

 

  • Sah’s family is originally from Brazil. They eventually moved to Florida. 
  • He tried substances like drugs and alcohol while living in LA.
  • Sah started a fashion magazine with his friends.
  • He struggled with depression and anxiety.
  • Listen to the entire episode for Sah’s journey and experiences as he discovered meditation.

 

 

A Trip to India

 

  • Going to India was Sah’s radical move. He mapped his trip and planned to learn from South Indian gurus.

 

  • But the moment he saw the Dalai Lama, Sah knew he will learn something from him.

 

  • Sah bought a ticket to India and went on a 10-day silent retreat. The people in the retreat reflected something simple but deep to him—he is innately good. His goodness is not circumstantial; it’s unconditional.
  • They also meditated on death, which gave him a psychosomatic response as he reflected on the life he’s been living.
  • Sah listened to the Dalai Lama talk, whose words landed so deeply for him. It’s what put him on his current path.

 

 

Sah’s 30-Day Meditation Retreat in Kathmandu, Nepal

 

  • This experience was a moment of reflection and self-evaluation.
  • Sah found himself crying and broken several moments during the day. He slowly made peace with the feeling that he is a mistake.
  • On their last day, Sah took a vow to commit to healing. 
  • His desire to heal was selfish; he only wanted to feel better. But led him to the right choice and path.

 

 

Life Lessons from Sah

  • Learn to approach everything with joy. 
  • Suicidal thoughts are a narrative that you regularly visit; pause when you have them.
  • Joy is innate to all people.
  • Look for things that you can regularly do that awaken unconditional joy.

Graduating From Family Trauma

 

  • Sah had a TEDx talk about transgenerational trauma, where he shared his grandmother’s suicide story.
  • Science tells us that our genetics embody who we are. 
  • Karma tells us that everything we are today is the handiwork of ourselves.
  • Listen to the full episode to hear Sah explain more about epigenetics!

 

 

Karma

  • Find what sets you free. 
  • Between karma and science, choose what works for you.
  • Every state of mind matters; your words and actions matter. The life you are living right now is a consequence of all of your past actions. 
  • The aspects of how karma blossoms in your life: how clean your space is, the way you see the world, the way the world sees you, and the overall tendencies of the mind.

Navigating Mental Health & Transformation During the Pandemic

 

  • Do not be focused on labels.
  • Seek professional help and look for ancient practices.
  • Find people who will be your spiritual support.
  • It is essential to stay committed to your healing.

 

 

Reclaiming Words

 

  • We’re creatures of meaning. It’s important to reclaim words in a way that impacts your internal world.
  • “Crack baby” is a metaphor for being a wild, loving, and free person, but it can also mean living without accountability.
  • High vision is living a life of purpose and being in control of your mind. With high vision, you can learn altruism.
  • Surrender is patience: surrender means to understand that not everything can happen immediately.

 

Your Spiritual Path

  • For Sah, being on a spiritual path is means constant unlearning and remembering.
  • It is when you don’t feel your teachers or books are subduing your best qualities.

 

 

  • Spiritually Sassy welcomes and celebrates your extraness as the pathway to your freedom.

 

  • Some practices may not work for you.
  • Whatever you want to do, remember to choose a path that develops your best qualities and removes your worst.

 

 

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[15:53] “As we start to feel better, the natural impulse of the heart is to serve.”

[37:11] “Be consistent to what's unfamiliar.

[37:39] “To do something different, to go out of your way to choose to drink more water, to choose to sit down, to concentrate your mind, to breathe in a way that's healing, to eat in a way that supports your awakening— all the things that we talked about. It takes a little bit of devotional discipline. But I got to tell you guys, I'm sitting here today because of that devotional discipline.”

[46:37] “The problem is the sense of urgency that we want things to happen right in this moment. And if it doesn't, then I am miserable.”

Jasmin Jenkins is a grief guide and the founder of Fall Up, a community platform created to support people navigating the spectrum of grief. Here, she answers questions from the fullest about navigating loss.

What are the different stages of grieving?

The stages of grief were first identified by the late Swiss-American psychiatrist, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in her book On Death and Dying (1969). The five stages were identified as: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. 

Even with this, I want to remind you that grief is not a linear process.

How Befriending Your Fear Fuels Your Creative Process with Meera Lee Patel

We’re all familiar with the struggle of pursuing something uncertain. It could be a simple task or a job that can completely change your life. Fear can make us feel small and stuck, holding us back from our full potential. 

In this episode, Meera Lee Patel shares how she makes art and writing a means to help herself and her audience process anxiety. Find out how she harnesses creative energy from unfulfilling times. She also provides tips on how to soothe your negative thoughts during the pandemic.

Whether your career revolves around art or not, Meera’s experiences can inspire you to sit with your fear to tap the creative soul in you.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover how you can spark and sustain creativity every day.
  2. Find out how to cope with the negativity surrounding the pandemic.
  3. How does Meera Lee Patel feel radically loved? Find out toward the end of the episode.

Resources

 

 

Episode Highlights

Meera’s Creative Inspiration

  • Meera's work is a direct reflection of her thoughts and experiences. When she shares herself, she can manage her anxiety and heal.
  • She strives to release art and writing that people can resonate and connect with.

Meera’s Journey

 

  • Meera was raised by immigrant parents who instilled the importance of a stable career.
  • After graduating from college with a degree in journalism, she took a job at a technical publishing company. She felt very unfulfilled over the routine of sitting in the office and doing the same thing every day.
  • Her dissatisfaction sparked her journey in painting and writing. She spent several years doing these on the side.
  • While writing My Friend Fear, she realized she cannot make a genuine piece of writing about dealing with fear if she is hiding behind hers.
  • She was taught to keep her head down and avoid attention. But living like that made her feel small and invisible. When she couldn’t stand it anymore, she went off-course.

 

For the Struggling Person

 

  • Now is the greatest opportunity to start what you’ve been waiting to do. However, do not put all your eggs in one basket.
  • Before becoming a full-time artist, Meera stayed in her job for seven years to build something self-supporting. She wanted to remain independent and responsible for herself.
  • Creativity will be suffocated if you have anxiety over economic fears. Feel safe first, but accept that you may not be as comfortable as you felt before.
  • Find a way to earn income, even if it is only half of what you earn before. Do it as long as it helps you pay the bills and makes you feel safer.
  • Channel as much energy as you can in turning your dreams into reality. Take online classes to sharpen your skills and learn more about the industry you want to move toward.

 

On Minimizing Distractions

  • Set boundaries. Allot time to find quiet and solitude but acknowledge that this could be difficult during the pandemic.
  • Meera needs a transition period where she goes from being a person of the world into an artist who harnesses creativity from within herself.
  • Leave your phone and other gadgets in another room. Distance yourself first from the people and pets you live with.

Coping Mechanisms During the Pandemic

  • Nobody is going through the pandemic at peak productivity every day. It’s hard for all of us in different ways.
  • If you find yourself in a circle of self-criticism, give yourself a break. Be content with whatever you’ve achieved.
  • Take care of yourself and be a little softer.

How to Live a Creative Life

  • Creativity is everywhere. Apply it to every aspect of your life, including conversations and cooking. It's all about changing the dynamic of the usual activities you do.
  • Try a different creative channel to clear up your energy. When you do another activity, it can spark inspiration for the task you were feeling stuck about.
  • You have to move and create something to change your emotions accordingly. Action affects attitude.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[06:20] “We make the work that we need to see.”

[12:40] “When I decided to stop living a small life governed by my fear and open myself up to the possibility of more, I got a lot more.”

[14:32] “I think a lot of the values that we are taught are so important—and I'm so grateful for most of them—but a lot of them will also ask us to become invisible.”

[17:53] “Creativity—it will be suffocated if you have anxiety over economical fears.”

[33:13] “Action changes attitude—I try to remember that. If I want to change the way I feel, I have to move; I have to do something. And then my emotions will change accordingly.”

About Meera

Meera Lee Patel is a self-taught artist and writer based in Nashville, Tennessee. She is the author of My Friend Fear: Finding Magic in the Unknown, a beautiful meditation on fear and how it can help us become who we are if we let it.

Meera is also the author of two journals: Made Out of Stars, a journal encouraging the belief that you are already whole, and Start Where You Are, a journal helping you understand that the answers you are seeking are contained within yourself.

She is currently a columnist at Spirituality & Health, where she writes and draws about mental health.

Moving Away from Fear Toward an Authentic Life with Jen Pastiloff

We should never forget who we are and what we want, even with adversity in our lives. Our purpose and identity are what keep us going. No matter what society tells us about how and who we should be, living an authentic life will bring satisfaction and happiness in our lives.

It's time to reflect and ask ourselves if we are living the life we’ve always wanted. And if we find ourselves saying no, may we have the courage to start again and build the life we desire.

In this episode, Jen Pastiloff talks to us about the importance of living a life congruent with our true selves and moving away from fear. Discussions on how to prevent ourselves from being paralyzed from fear are essential as we continue to live through a global pandemic and civil unrest. She also talks about how she's helping amplify the voices of the vulnerable sectors of society and why she doesn't believe that everything happens for a reason.

If you want to hear tips on how to live an authentic life that’s congruent with who you are, listen to the full episode.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover why you need to live a life congruent with your authentic self.
  2. Learn helpful ways to move away from fear.
  3. Jen will share with us how she feels radically loved.

Resources

Episode Highlights

Living a Congruent Life

  • Just like everybody else, Jen still struggles with living true to who she is.
  • Living an authentic life gives you freedom.
  • Just like how gossiping and complaining don't make you feel good and lower your vibration, not living a life congruent with your real self will not bring you happiness.

Coping During the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • Due to the pandemic's impacts, Jen had to cancel a lot of her schedule, which prevented her from earning.
  • To cope with the stress, she chose to use her platform to raise money for people suffering from the ongoing health crisis and the Black Lives Matter movement.
  • Doing online workshops also gives her hope during this challenging period.

Moving Away from Fear

  • Jen copes with her anxieties by moving her body.
  • Find your people who will hold you accountable and remind you of who you really are.
  • Fear starts to get louder when you're at home all day long.
  • Due to the current state of the world, many people lack human connection, and it adds to the fear they're having.
  • Jen finds the strength within her to jump on new things even though she feels afraid.

Jen’s Main Anchor in Life

  • Jen inherited her dad's sense of humor. Learning humor’s value and not taking herself too seriously helped her find balance in her life.
  • Everything is temporary. So Jen encourages everyone to remain grateful for the things they have right now.
  • Her ability to connect with people is also one thing that keeps her on the right path.

Does Everything Happen for a Reason?

  • Instead of saying everything happens for a reason, according to Jen, it's much better to find the meaning out of a situation.
  • She doesn't agree that the suffering of other people is something preordained.
  • The phrase “everything happens for a reason” is just a way for people to cope with the discomfort they feel about something.
  • That said, Jen does not invalidate how the phrase provides comfort to religious people or people of faith.

Using Her Platform for Social Justice

  • Jen reminds everyone that it doesn't cost anything to be kind and help other people.
  • Helping others feels organic to her.
  • Jen is aware of her privilege as a white woman. So she makes sure she uses her platform to amplify the voices of the people who don't share the same privilege.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[07:11] “All I ever want to be is free, and kind, and various other things, but free, ultimately, from the prison that most of us put ourselves in.”

[08:18] “May I have the courage to be who I say I am.” 

[22:27] “I know what I'm good at. I'm good at being in a room with 75 or a hundred people in person. But I don't know how this was gonna work. I'm afraid, and I'm doing it anyway.”

[23:40] “If it becomes a lifetime of being afraid and not doing it, then you get kind of screwed.”

[30:27] “I don't think everything happens for a reason at all. I think that's nonsense. I think that after something happens, we can make meaning out of it sometimes, or art, or find the gift in it.”

About Jen

Jen Pastiloff is a yoga and wellness teacher and author. Her sold-out workshops all over the world have helped thousands of women feel empowered and stronger. She also founded the online magazine The Manifest-Station. Her book On Being Human is a memoir on how she overcame her demons and lived a life full of happiness and beauty.

Living a Heart-Centered Life with Noel Elie

It's easy to get lost in the supposed “normal” flow of life. By doing so, we hope it would lead us to the right place. But what we fail to see is this only leads us to go against our own flow, our own pursuit of our dreams and passions. Conforming to societal standards can become a stumbling block to our growth and success.

So, how can we choose to live in our own flow?

In today's episode, we’re joined by Noel Elie to explore what limits us from doing what we love. Noel shares how learning how to say “no” has helped her realize that she has a choice in everything. She discusses how she strikes a balance between finding success and doing her craft. She also shares the challenges and lessons she learned amid the pandemic.

If you want to start living an unapologetic life, then this episode is perfect for you!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover the power of intuition in making the right decisions.
  2. How does writing down a happiness list help free your soul?
  3. Find out Noel’s definition of freedom and unconditional love and how she feels radically loved.

Resources

Episode Highlights

Noel’s Background

  • She experienced what it was like to be multiracial when she moved to South Carolina from Florida. 
  • She moved to New York to pursue her dreams two days after she graduated high school.
  • Although she found success in modeling, it became unhealthy when she developed an eating disorder. 
  • She went from modeling to producing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. After meeting Gabby Bernstein, one thing led to another, and she eventually created her own event company.
  • Now, she gets to work with her skill sets while still following her passion.

Creating Boundaries

  • Setting boundaries is an uphill battle for Noel. It’s enriching, enlightening, and heartbreaking.
  • There are days when she would be at the beach every day; other days, she wouldn't get out of bed.
  • As she read through articles and videos of activists, she couldn’t help but feel helpless. She feels victimized as she looks back on what it was like being biracial.
  • Noel is also learning how much she can devote to creating boundaries and taking care of herself without feeling selfish.
  • We’re all in this fight, and she’s taking it one day at a time.

Deciding What to Focus on

  • It's a matter of setting boundaries. Noel's philosophy in life is this: “Jump, and the net will appear.”
  • She says yes to things that make her feel good and no to things that don't. She trusts her gut and her intuition, and it has never failed her.
  • It’s about finding the balance between having success in certain areas and doing your craft.
  • She continues learning from her mistakes and growing from them.
  • After her mom passed away, it put things in perspective on how she wants to live her life.

Learning When to Say “No”

  • Her intuition is very strong and steadfast. Sometimes she chooses to listen to it, and sometimes she doesn't.
  • She has already seen red flags whenever she chooses not to listen to that voice.
  • It's about shattering societal standards when you go against the flow of saying “yes.” Once you've tapped into that, you know that you have a choice.
  • When she's creating, she wants to be in spirit as much as she can.

When You Don’t See Your Future

  • Although Noel has accomplished a lot, her life has not been all rainbows and butterflies.
  • We all have a choice whether we want to be happy or in despair.
  • Her mom chose to go beyond having a horrific childhood and getting cancer.
  • Make a happiness list, and write down all the things that bring you joy. You can start with small steps.
  • Once you start doing that, your soul will feel free. Inevitably, you’ll live in your own flow.

Navigating Life Amid a Pandemic

  • She got diagnosed with cyst fibroids, and she has been living with chronic pain for the past years. One of the ways to shrink the fibroids is to have a completely clean diet.
  • Not being able to go out of the house stripped away a lot in her life.
  • The pandemic has forced her to sit with different parts of herself that aren’t so pretty.
  • It became her wake-up call to start listening to her body. It is also an opportunity for her to slow down.

Looking Forward

  • She's restructuring her company and up-leveling a lot of things.
  • She trusts that she's being guided every day. For Noel, it feels liberating when she can surrender and be sure that there is a reason for wherever she's going.
  • As someone with physical touch as a love language, she’s excited to hug her friends and meet them face to face.

Noel’s Definition of . . .

  • Freedom — Speaking her truth with no apology
  • Unconditional love — From her mom’s wisdom, it is to fall in love with as many people and as many things as possible. A heart full of love is a heart that’s full.
  • Feeling radically loved — Being fully supported and held and safe

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

[08:54] “I'm really grateful to the white people that have been sharing and messing up and continuing to share and learn, right? Because I think a lot of people will just sit back and say, ‘This isn't my fight.’ And I think we're all one, and we're in this together, and so I'm taking it one day at a time.”

[13:08] “I feel like some of my biggest lessons in life have been from my mistakes. And so continuing to say yes, say no, when it doesn't feel good, and then also forgiving myself when I fuck up.”

[14:39] “How do you want to live it? Do you want to waste it, worrying about what people think of you? Or do you want to follow your purpose and your passion, and, you know, hopefully, it'll lead you to the right place?”

[19:20] “Do you want to go by societal standards, or do you want to go and move how you want to move?”

[33:46] “Fall in love every day with as many people and as many things as possible because a heart full of love is a heart that's full.”

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“When you don't understand something is why you have a block in doing the very thing that you should be doing.” 

“Instead of making us, ourselves, feel bad about what we did, or we didn't do, or what we should be accomplishing during this time, or what we are not supposed to be accomplishing, I think it's just let it be.”

“We need to look at it as a resetting and a rebalancing for ourselves and giving ourselves the opportunity to do the things we've always wanted to do both health-wise, business-wise friendship, family, all of that.”

“If it's doing this to your skin, what is it doing elsewhere in your body? Because you have to remember here: whatever you do now is going to be a delayed effect 20 years down the road.”

“Everything has its use in life. And if you're using it (coffee) in a way that's healthy and it's not to try to keep yourself awake or to wake yourself up, that's great.”

How to Awaken Your Spiritual Ninja During Quarantine with Janelle Christa

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced most of us into loneliness and isolation. It is even harder for people who have no one to be with during this time.

Episode Highlights

Janelle’s Passion

  • The thing she’s always 100% most excited about is healing.
  • Being a single mom, she turned to healing and eventually turned to helping other people awaken to that journey.
  • She channels healing through writing, filmmaking, courses, and retreats.

The Biggest Obstacle in Quarantine

  • It’s the mystery of the unknown of how long this is going to last.
  • Everybody likes to have control of their lives and schedules.
  • These limiting energies come out as blame, rage, and anger. It can be transitional and helpful, but when we are locked into them, it can feel hopeless.
  • Because the pandemic is happening on a global scale, it brings people together.

Advice for People Going Through Their Spiritual Journey During This Time

  • Step into what makes you human and allows the full kaleidoscope of emotions within you.
  • Allow yourself to tap into these emotions, but don’t go so deep into them. Just be aware of them.
  • Practicing mindfulness amid a crisis or loneliness can be difficult. But it's essential to go into the foundations that make us human and turn to them as much as we can.
  • The easiest way to tap into these elements is through breathing.

Easing the Feeling of Inertia and Heaviness

  • It’s all about baby steps. Be gentle and patient with yourself.
  • Go in meditation and close your eyes. Imagine putting a bubble around you and calling in a form that can be your shield and protector.
  • Cut the barrier between you and the rest of the world.
  • Take away the energy that doesn’t belong, and you’re going to feel lighter.

How to Avoid Energy Vampires on Social Media

  • A lot of times, we paint energy vampires as toxic people.
  • Some energy vampires are just jealous or envious, but there are also people who see the light in you and try to grab hold of that.
  • When a person's energy is sucked, they may feel like they need to give their energy away because they unconsciously remember someone they need to please.
  • When you start to recognize that in yourself, it will be empowering.
  • Try to see the other person as another human who's just looking for a connection.

Mindfulness in Using Social Media

  • Be aware of the unseen elements that create negative energies on social media.
  • Janelle says that it’s valuable to put a shield around you before you get on social media.
  • Even though we are interacting on social media from across the world, we're all connected because we’re all made of energy.

Janelle’s Overall Relationship with Social Media as a Spiritual Leader

  • She has a natural desire to challenge people and shake their beliefs.
  • Janelle thinks that the key to using social media is having limits.

Janelle’s Definition of Freedom

  • Freedom for Janelle is being able to express yourself freely, to have whatever type of relationship, and freedom from negative ego.
  • She believes that the biggest problem in our entire world is superiority.
  • Superiority keeps us so separate from each other.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“If all you can do one day is you get up and you eat, and you do the dishes, and that's like the gist of it, okay. Great. At least you did that.”

“Create a healthy boundary to create a healthy connection with that person.”

“You don't want your self-esteem to get wrapped around if people are liking your stuff or not. There’s so much different things that can get pulled into that. We have to just be honest and real; we do have feeling.”

“Freedom from superiority—I feel like that is freedom really, where you’d just be in union. You can see one another as equal, not less than, not more than.”

“I feel radically loved when I forgive myself. Maybe I don’t forgive myself or others for what they did, but I can forgive them for why they did it.”

  • They awarded 100 influential people in the wellness industry, including Rosie.

Body Positivity in the Time of a Pandemic

  • Rachel has worked in the healthcare system and is an expert on eating disorders and mental health.
  • During this crisis, people should not feel ashamed of eating more or unhealthily due to the limited food available to us.
  • Eating can help people cope with some of the mental health issues triggered by the pandemic and isolation.
  • Social media is a great tool to communicate with people while in quarantine. But it can also induce envy since more are tuning in to social media to fill their time.
  • People on social media are more understanding of the things that truly matter now. But it's still important to limit your screen time.

For People Without Company While in Quarantine

  • Emotional eating is a natural way to self-soothe. It only becomes a problem when it's your only coping mechanism.
  • It's essential to expand your coping strategies and balance things out. Reach out to your friends through social media apps.
  • To have some sense of control and connection, you can donate to charities and virtual organizations helping out in this crisis.

On Overeating During Quarantine

  • Rachel reminds people that there are no good or bad foods. If you label something as bad, you may end up depriving yourself of that food and compensate later on.
  • If your emotional eating is getting out of hand, expand your coping mechanisms and practice acceptance.
  • Take things in moderation and find nutritional balance. Eat enough to avoid overeating.

How to Stop Pressuring Yourself During Quarantine

  • Not all people have the same time during the quarantine. You don't have to pressure yourself to learn skills if it does not apply to your situation.
  • Acknowledge your emotions and do not shame yourself for not doing more in this new normal.
  • Be compassionate to yourself.

Hope After COVID-19

  • Rachel hopes we will hold some of the principles we learned in this crisis and create the needed changes rather than going back to the way it was before.

Focusing on What You Want to Create for Your Life

  • Rachel became a dietitian because she wanted to help people become healthier.
  • She enjoys creating personal connections with people by putting helpful articles on the Internet.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“For the record, emotional eating is not wrong or a bad thing. I think the culture has made it like, ‘Oh, you shouldn't eat out of emotion only if out of hunger,’ when the truth of the matter is that it's a totally natural way to self-soothe."

“When you label something as bad, you end up depriving yourself of that food. You avoid it; you might be more likely to overeat it later on.”

“If you constantly are overcompensating, you're going to overcompensate later on.”

“Just by acknowledging that you have these emotions and not shaming ourselves for not doing more with this new normal is really important.”

"The world's going to change, and I would only hope that it's for the better and we're more mindful of everyone else's well-being too, not just our own.”

The 4 Keys to Fertility Success with Tasha Blasi

Getting pregnant is a joyous time in a woman’s life. But for some, getting pregnant naturally can be a complicated process. For cases like this, it can be the result of fertility issues between a couple.

An alternative to natural pregnancy is integrative fertility through IVF or in vitro fertilization. Going through this process can be fearful and uncertain; thus, it's vital to get the proper support from the right individuals for a successful fertility journey.

In this episode, the founder of the FU Project, Tasha Blasi, joins us to discuss integrative fertility and IVF. She shares the keys to fertility success that she has discovered throughout the years of helping women. She also explains the female reproductive system and its components and processes in detail.

If you're an aspiring mother who wants to go under IVF coaching or if you want to provide better support to a loved one, then this episode is for you!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover what Tasha did to perfect her program and get a crazy high success rate.
  2. Listen as she debunks and gives light to the most common fertility myths.
  3. How does Tasha Blasi feel radically loved? Find out toward the end of the episode.

Resources

Episode Highlights

Tasha’s Background in Integrative Fertility

  • Tasha was a biology and chemistry teacher for about a decade before she moved to corporate in New York City.
  • Her journey began when she did ten rounds of IVF to have her two kids when she had no fertility issues.
  • No matter how hard she tried and no matter how much time, energy, and money she put into it, she could not be successful.
  • She figured out after the tenth round that her mistake was not banking embryos.

Four Keys to Fertility Success

  • The right science or biology: If you want to get pregnant naturally
  • Space: Is there enough space in your mind and body to have a baby?
  • Energy at the cellular level: We need to be in abundance to reproduce.
  • Support: Somebody to keep you on track

Perfecting the Program

  • Tasha has seen the protocols of nine different countries, dozens of clinics, and hundreds of women over the years.
  • Unlike doctors who work in labs, she is involved in researching herself for years.
  • She doesn’t guarantee pregnancies, but the crazy success rates say it all. There’s always going to be things that you can’t control.

Understanding the Female Reproductive System

  • It's not our fault that we don't understand our systems completely. It's how it was presented to us.
  • Tasha gives a blueprint of how she helps her clients.
  • It’s only a mistake when you know about it and don’t do something to move forward with that information.

The IVF Jail

  • How ready are you to undergo pregnancy?
  • Instead of living a fun and enjoyable life, you live a miserable life when you're in IVF jail.
  • When you are in IVF jail, you don’t want to hear that you need to slow down.
  • You have to be willing to make a few minor changes that don’t massively affect your life and the things you love.
  • The aftermath of IVF should make you happier, healthier, and better. You have to be the best version of yourself to be a better partner and a better mother.

Pregnancy Myths vs. Facts

  • #1: Not meditating on your “spirit baby” enough is the reason why you can't get pregnant.
  • #2: “Does drinking alcohol and caffeine affect my ability to get pregnant?”
  • #3: “I have a diminished egg reserve. Can I still get pregnant?”
  • #4: “Can I still get pregnant even after the doctor has told me I can't?”
  • Listen to the full episode for Tasha’s answers and explanations! She also shares how a client overcame her fertility issues after being told by a doctor that she can’t get pregnant.

The Power of Clarity

  • It's important not to lose hope and be optimistic, but it's understandable to find it difficult.
  • Clarity will bring you positivity and confidence.

Advice to Women Who are Going Through the Process

  • Reach out to Tasha. The sooner you hop on to the journey, the cheaper it will be.
  • Discover what you don't know yet.
  • Make it about you. Forget about your fertility journey when it comes to the things you can control.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“With what you can control, there's always going to be things you can't. With what you can control, we don't make mistakes.”

“You don't want to change your life because you're trying to get pregnant because I guarantee your life has already been changed.”

“What I always say is what will bring you positivity and confidence is clarity.”

“The key is shifting it from fixing your fertility issues to fixing you.”

“All I need to do is be, and I feel radically loved.”

About Tasha

Tasha Blasi is an integrative fertility and IVF coach and the founder of the Fertilities Unite or FU Project. She is also a fertility patient advocate and a mother of two very expensive children. Using her science background and through the help of experts, she created a customized IVF coaching program to help women get pregnant quickly.

Being Mindful & Compassionate Despite Any Circumstances with Anne Alexander

There is a cultural shift happening in our midst. Despite the changes in engagements caused by the pandemic, we have also never been this connected by technology. Not only are we confronted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but movements also arise that call for people to take a stand and express their opinions. We can see different ideas and perspectives, which, most of the time, can create a divide among us despite being interconnected and having shared responsibility.

In today’s episode, Anne Alexander shares with us how to be mindful in these extraordinary times. She talks about how to engage and be compassionate with others who do not share the same perspective with us. Anne also discussed the advantages and disadvantages of cancel culture and its healthy boundaries.

If you want to practice mindfulness and foster more meaningful relationships, tune in to this episode.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover different ways of how you can practice mindfulness.
  2. Learn the importance of compassion and patience in being mindful, especially in your relationships.
  3. Find out how Anne practices mindfulness in her personal life.

Resources

  • Mindful website
  • FREE workbook! Apply the lessons you learn from this episode as you listen! Enter your email below, and I’ll send it right away!

Episode Highlights

Living in Extraordinary Times

  • We live amid the pandemic, and yet we can sense the people's mindfulness in different situations around us.
  • Anne shares that she had the opportunity to learn from other mindfulness teachers about the Black Lives Matter movement. She wishes to be able to communicate what she learned to other people.
  • There is so much we need to listen to, and there is a lot of pain and injustice.
  • Our society has shifted extraordinarily in a short period. For example, we can see different age groups and different ethnicities supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
  • We are amid so many shifts and an increasing sense of shared responsibility.

Being Open to Dialogue

  • Most of the time, it is difficult to have your point of view and hold somebody else’s point of view with grace.
  • To be able to communicate, you need emotional empathy regardless of who you are and what you believe in.
  • You can engage in a real dialogue when you come from a place of genuine respect and true recognition.
  • We are living in a world with sharp edges, grit, difficulty, and pain. The trick is to have a sense of equanimity and respect.

The Importance of Patience

  • The people closest to us can be the hardest people to change because there is so much history.
  • You can start with the patience of accepting the first goal, which is to find moments of togetherness and be in a room with someone who has a different point of view.
  • The divide amongst people is not just something you can dispense within a conversation.
  • However, patience and mindfulness allow us to see each other across tremendous divides.

Hate and Judgment

  • When we see irritating posts on social media and want to say something about it, you are just perpetuating hate.
  • Do not let your anger irritate your social world. Hate does not solve the problem.
  • We need to be more mindful of our intentions.
  • Ashumans, we have flaws and are capable of saying stupid things.
  • Can we show other people the understanding, grace, and generosity we give ourselves when we make mistakes?

Cancel Culture

  • Context is often lost in cancel culture.
  • The hard work is in having hard conversations.
  • Cancel culture also has a plus side. It can be an excellent way to support companies that are on the right side and withdraw support for those whose stand you do not support.
  • We create change with our actions.
  • However, cancel culture can be short-sighted. It doesn’t solve anything if you simply say, “Oh, that was a stupid thing. Therefore, I'm not going to talk to that person anymore.”

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“The reality is we’re living in a world with sharp edges and grit and difficulty and pain and passion, confusion, and all of that stuff. And the real trick is to be able to have that sense of equanimity and respect.”

“Now is the time to be able to come to a place to be able to keep our own energy levels high enough that we can listen and we can be there. We can mediate, and we can try to absorb things, even if we don't understand things.”

“Part of what is extraordinary, if you will, about mindfulness or being mindful is the ability also to see reality as it is.”

“Perhaps the first goal was just to find those moments of togetherness and to re-establish that beautiful fluid bond. The patience may take a long time to get to the place where that conversation can really happen.”

“The hard work is having hard conversations, and that takes a tremendous amount of commitment.”

Discover the Benefits of Yoga Nidra with Dr. Kamini Desai

In today's world, we are continuously working and tiring ourselves out to feel accomplished. This culture of overdoing has been hurting us for years. You have to remember that constantly driving yourself into the ground will eventually lead to burnout and disorientation. You will not have the time to process your emotions or restore your energy. As a result, you will develop stress, depression, and unhealthy coping mechanisms.

In this episode, Dr. Kamini Desai shares with us the benefits of Yoga Nidra and the science behind it. She also discusses how it can uncover unconscious emotions affecting our behavior and mindset. Kamini also talks about how Yoga Nidra can help us deal with the uncertainties we feel during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you’re curious about Yoga Nidra and the power it can bring to your life, then listen to the full episode!

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover how Yoga Nidra can help you during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  1. Learn the scientific dynamics of Yoga Nidra and how it can help you process your emotions.
  1. What makes Kamini feel radically loved? Find out toward the end of the episode.

Episode Highlights

Yoga Nidra’s Role in the Time of COVID-19

  • When we encounter something, we see it as either an obstacle or an opportunity.
  • It’s an opportunity to assess the things you exert your energy on.
  • It's the time to face our aloneness and heal it from within.

What Is Yoga Nidra?

  • Yoga Nidra is a sleeping meditation technique riding on the biology of your body.
  • It rests in the biological gap between us and our thoughts when we sleep.
  • The value and benefits of Yoga Nidra are for everybody.
  • Its principle is that the less you do, the more shifts happen.

Does Sleeping Hinder Productivity?

  • Overdoing is part of our culture. Society rewards people who are stressed and overwhelmed.
  • People often don’t get rewarded when they take care of themselves, so they dismiss resting and the non-doing aspects of life.
  • The more you rest, the more currency you have to work.

Yoga Nidra as a Spiritual Practice

  • Yoga Nidra reminds people of an abiding eternal awareness.
  • It helps you find peace within yourself, which you can access anytime.
  • Especially in the time of a pandemic, it’s vital to find calm spaces that you can go to when you need it.

Benefits of Yoga Nidra

  • Yoga Nidra provides support to people on medication, for instance.
  • Because it releases serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins naturally, you feel an intense sense of well-being.

How Yoga Nidra Happens in the Heart

  • The heart is the primary conduit or collector of the energy of the source (called Prana or Chi).
  • The heart channels the energy into your body and returns it to the source.
  • Therefore, Yoga Nidra is about reconnecting with your source nature.

Restoration Through Yoga Nidra

  • Yoga teachers are only human, so they also feel depleted.
  • It allows us to recognize the source and state of our exhaustion and understand what to do.
  • The sooner we catch the feelings of depletion, the sooner we can put ourselves back on track.

The Science of Yoga Nidra

  • The amount of stress hormones released during a prolonged state of stress affects our brains.
  • The amygdala or the fear center of our brain becomes more activated. Also, our prefrontal cortex becomes thinner.
  • When our prefrontal cortex isn’t strong enough, our insecurities and worries can run our lives.
  • Within 11 hours of Yoga Nidra practice, the prefrontal cortex thickens considerably. In return, it increases your ability to manage stress.

Duration of Yoga Nidra Practice

  • Practicing Yoga Nidra is more about consistency. You can do it 5 days a week for 20 to 40 minutes.
  • In as little as 8 weeks, Yoga Nidra mindfulness techniques can increase the size of the hippocampus.
  • Start by doing 3 months consistently, and you can feel your body craving and undergoing changes.

On Unprocessed Emotions

  • Incomplete events or unprocessed emotions are undischarged energy. It can run through your nervous system as if the event is still in play.
  • Yoga Nidra processes undischarged energy by removing the resistances and allowing energy to move gently.

Visceral Experiences During Yoga Nidra

  • Yoga Nidra provides a deeper state than sleep, and it gives you a chance to release and process the things you repressed.
  • Unconscious things affect our conscious mind and behavior.

Advice for Students Who are Afraid of Going Back and Practicing

  • Students must first understand that Yoga Nidra is a powerful healing modality.
  • They can talk to their body about what they’re ready to release.
  • Students with trauma and PTSD can practice Yoga Nidra while sitting down to slow down the process.

On Sankalpa & Setting Intentions

  • Yoga Nidra touches the core of our consciousness. However, if there are deeply seated beliefs or impressions, there would be an inner conflict.
  • Yoga Nidra is designed to work backward through the core of your consciousness. Sankalpa are like seeds planted to create positivity in your thoughts.

Discovering Yoga Nidra

  • Have someone who resonates with you to guide you.
  • Do it when you can.

Advice for People with Strong Rooted Principles Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic

  • This pandemic is the time to remember what we have received and practice it.
  • You know what to do, and you know the practices.
  • If you pay attention to something, that’s where your energy flows.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“Anything that comes across our path, we can see it as an obstacle or an opportunity.”

“We tend to dismiss the rest, restoration, the non-doing aspects of life in favor of what's going to get us the acknowledgment.”

“The more that you relax, the more currency you have to do.”

“People will say, ‘Oh, my god, Yoga Nidra does terrible things.’ It's not doing terrible things. It's clearing out what was already in there.”

“Where attention goes, energy flows.”

Episode Highlights

Simon's Health Journey

  • Simon grew up in Hong Kong, where drinking medicinal plants is a massive part of cuisine and culture.
  • He went to the United States for college and spent ten years in finance. During this time, he immersed himself in work and, unfortunately, would often get sick.
  • He would take a lot of antibiotics and consult with doctors. However, instead of getting better, he felt more ill, and his lungs collapsed.
  • Simon went through an invasive surgery after being diagnosed with sleep apnea. After going through physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse, he realized there are alternative ways of healing he can try.
  • He embarked on a healing exploration, meeting with amazing plant doctors, medicine, and meditation experts to discover the different available organic treatments.

How Simon Started Exploring Healing Modalities

  • He felt like he was on a dead-end, and his experiences of going under the knife cause him great grief and suffering.
  • Simon realized that the health system is a business and learned how to scrutinize products and services offered to him.
  • He later realized he grew up with a culture rich with natural alternative treatments, so he went back to his roots to heal himself.

How Tea Became the Foundation of Simon's Business

  • His grandfather's lifestyle and tea practices served as inspiration for his business.
  • Hong Kong is famous for soups and tonics made with different herbs. The environment he grew up in champions the use of medicinal plants.
  • The concept of health and longevity in Eastern culture is about early detection of imbalance. In contrast, Western culture focuses on the symptomatic approach to treatment.
  • Eastern culture helps you develop awareness about energy and health irregularities, as well as identifying toxicity in your lifestyle.

Advice for People Who Aren't in Tune with Their Bodies

  • Awareness does not work only subconsciously; it also has physical applications. You can also develop your awareness by using the functions of your senses.
  • You can become aware of the toxins in your life by experiencing the authenticity of products and the environment.
  • When you spend a lot of time with yourself, you start to notice the toxicity of other people's company. You manage this through healthy means.
  • The awareness that is building up inside you allows you to be in tune with your body.

The Role of Meditation and Mindfulness

  • According to Simon, the more he meditated, the more mindful he became.
  • Through meditation, you can be more present in your life and to your family.
  • You can give 100% of your attention to the people you’re interacting with and avoid distractions while conversing.
  • Meditation enables you to be present and enjoy every single moment in your life.

Giving Time and Effort to Living Healthy

  • Many people opt for quick fixes and instant gratification in healing and improving themselves. However, it simply doesn't work like that.
  • It does not have to be hard, and it can be incredibly enjoyable.
  • Don't treat healthy lifestyle choices like eating healthy or exercising as chores. You can enjoy the time doing it.

Simon's Biggest Gift to His Health

  • Practicing mindfulness and learning physiological meditation is one of the most important things he has done.
  • It improved his health and opened doors for his spiritual development.

Pique Tea's Crystallized Form

  • He traveled to the Western part of China, where tea was first discovered.
  • Natives made tea paste to alleviate the hardship in transporting medicinal plants from the mountains.
  • Pique Tea incorporates the ways natives brew their tea. That's why Pique Tea is authentic and has won awards.
  • Pique Tea crystals are more concentrated, screens for triple three toxins, and ingredients are more active due to heat removal.

5 Powerful Quotes

“How have I been following all the wrong medical advice, like completely abusing all the things that are important to myself, and not even getting any fulfillment in exchange? And so that was the moment that I decided to really take my health into my own hands and embark on a healing journey and exploration that continues every day.”

 

“When you spend a lot of time by yourself, walking in the forest, playing with your dog, hanging out with the kids, just meditating, you start to become hyper-aware of people that are toxic.”

 

“If it's truly something that I want to do that fills me, then I should be 100% present.”

 

On Meditation: “The more you practice it, the more your world expands.”

 

“We have this special ability to create outcomes and create things in our lives, but it requires that level of presence and intent.”

About the Guest

Simon Cheng is the CEO and co-founder of Pique Tea. He grew up in a household that encourages drinking medicinal plants and tea rituals in Hong Kong. After struggling with his health and hustling in the world of finance, he founded Pique Tea. It is the fastest growing tea brand in history and pioneered the world's first Cold Brew Tea Crystals. He continues to bring authenticity back in people's diets as Pique Tea continues to grow and help people to live healthier.

How Use Holistic Health to Improve Your Life with Krista Berlincourt

The conventional health system often doesn't provide us the best picture of what a truly healthy body and mind look like. In a world where medicine and technology have become so advanced, there is the prevailing mindset if we take a pill, we’ll get better. It isn’t always the case. A holistic approach to health allows us to take a look at our body, mind, and spirit and see the root cause of our symptoms.

Joining us in this episode is an exceptional guest—Krista Berlincourt of Kenshō Health. She lets us in on the definition of holistic health and how it can help us move forward with our lives. We also talk about her personal experience in this journey and the lessons she learned that led her to the path of holistic wellness.

If you, too, want to open your door to holistic health, make sure you tune in to the episode!   

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Discover how holistic health is so much more than conventional medicine.
  2. What is the cosmic wisdom of slowness and how doing less is better.
  3. How does Krista feel radically loved? Find out toward the end of the episode.

Episode Highlights

A Platform for Everybody

  • Kenshō is the first science-backed holistic health platform.
  • People come to find two things: the very best holistic health providers across the country and reliable, science-based answers and information.
  • The idea is to provide people with holistic health solutions that will work for them, with the tech boom and interest in holistic health in mind.
  • They utilize the largest and oldest scientific publisher in the world that provides open-source information and research they've been aggregating for over 200 years.
  • Their goal in Kenshō is to make health care accessible and easy to understand for everyone.

Krista’s Life

  • She grew up in Oregon. Her parents were both naturalists and explorers.
  • She has always had a deep connection with the natural. Her parents raised her to focus on understanding her connection with nature and look at life holistically.
  • The household she grew up with wasn’t focused on stability and maintaining the conventional systems of a family.
  • She took the waves that it brought internally. At a certain point in her life, that translated into a desire for healthier relationships.

Opening the Door to Holistic Health

  • To find the support she needs, she asks herself, “Where could I grow?” and “What would help me?”
  • Conventional medicine didn’t mirror the wisdom she knew from her upbringing. She spent ten years trying to get out of that.
  • She was “super successful in the technology world,” having worked at Deutsche Telekom and Microsoft.
  • But at 28, she was hospitalized. She started working with conventional doctors, but they didn't make any progress.
  • It was a chronic condition that had her taking prednisone every single day and a cortisol steroid dosage every month. And she knew that there had to be a different way.

The Lessons in our Lives

  • We all have those teachers in our lives, such as the losses and heartbreaks that stick with us and have a rapid transformational quality.
  • In the ten years Krista spent getting out of conventional medicine, she reached a resounding conclusion: you can’t found a company that will make the world a healthy place unless you know it's not healthy for everyone.
  • The holistic view of health, mind, body, and spirit is so much more than conventional medicine.

Expecting to Get Healthy Overnight

  • We were taught that when something is wrong, taking something will suppress that symptom.
  • Some pharmaceuticals treat acute symptoms but fail to address the root symptom.
  • They create this relationship with the body where you're telling yourself that you need to fix it instantly.

Krista’s Biggest Lesson

  • When something shows up, the symptom is a symptom. It’s not the thing; it’s the thing below these.
  • She looks at what's causing that symptom and what's going on in her life.
  • It comes with the recognition that you may be creating the stress with your habits and that you have to remove those.

The Power of Slowing Down

  • She was living in three places—Portland, Austin, and New York—and they sold her last company in Spain.
  • Along with this expansion, she had to take several international long-haul flights a year.
  • She took a one-way trip to the Galapagos Islands with the sole mission of slowing down.
  • Living in the Shimano community was the first time she spent her nights in the same place for 21 days in years.
  • Constantly moving is not our natural state as people. The moment she removed all that, she got better.

The Cosmic Wisdom of Life

  • If your body doesn’t get lit up by the idea of doing something, it’s not something that’s keeping you alive longer.
  • The body only has so much energy. Decision fatigue is real fatigue.
  • We have to remind ourselves of the cosmic wisdom of slowness and doing less.

Kenshō and Holistic Health

  • There are 500,000 holistic health providers in the country that's equal to the size of the conventional medical system. But navigating that can feel challenging.
  • They created Kenshō to help people find an answer and support them if they need it.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“It’s passive because we're young when that starts. We're taught when something's wrong, take something to suppress that symptom, and then you're done.”

“I remember him being like, ‘Just slow down and remember who the fuck you are.’”

“We do it because we have this hero complex that's been projected on us by society because someone somewhere told us that struggle makes us stronger.”

“You have to find that humor in the challenge but not absorb that challenge and think of it as like your muscle and life. Life should feel easy amidst the challenge.”

On being radically loved: “It comes from the inside. And it is like that nurturing and loving energy that's just my own.”

How to Boost Your Energy Without the Crash with Ethan Hirshberg

Energy is a resource we often take for granted. It pushes us through the next workout or to beat our work deadlines. Our energy levels are affected by everything around us, from our environment, our diets, and our lifestyle. You may be tempted to reach out for another cup of coffee or the typical sugary drink. However, these can lead to the inevitable crash that will set us back in the long term. Thus, we need something to provide us with energy minus the crash.

 

In this episode, Ethan Hirshberg talks about his mindset toward health and wellness and insights on the importance of energy in our daily lives. He shares how he developed his products, from apple cider drinks to energy shots, that aim to provide energy in a sustained manner. Ethan also discusses the lessons he learned from running his own business and gives advice on how to improve your lifestyle.

Episode Highlights

Ethan’s Experience In The Industry

  • Ethan grew up in New Hampshire and was born on the Stonyfield Farm. His father is the co-founder of Stonyfield Farm.
  • He is familiar and involved with the natural foods industry ever since he was a child.
  • He was raised in an environment that fosters environmental awareness and organic foods, which translated to his efforts, such as eco-friendly packaging.
  • There is more demand in the industry now than ever before.

His Mindset Toward Health and Wellness

  • As a child, he was indoctrinated into organic food that even his friends didn’t want to eat because it wasn’t pleasant.
  • His mother is a three-time breast cancer survivor and advocates for a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet and mindset.
  • People are intimidated by healthy eating and the numerous fad diets that seem to contradict each other.
  • Eating healthy definitely creates a momentum of better choices, from your diet to your exercise.
  • We shouldn’t take “democratizing organic” for granted.

Marketing Versus Product Development In Health Products

  • It is easy to dress up anything as anything.
  • Anyone can slap health claims and words onto labels with a lot of freedom, and people accept it as the truth.
  • Consumers, especially younger ones, demand transparency and want to look beyond the labeling.
  • With food, there should be a lot of authenticity with the product.
  • Big companies buy out smaller companies that actually have something new and organic to bring to the table.

Lessons Learned in Business

  • You can only do one thing at a time and focus on that.
  • It is easy to feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the path you're taking, so take small steps.
  • Make sure you’re coming from an authentic place and sample your product with friends and family.

The Importance of Exercise and Energy

  • Ethan feels more frantic if he doesn’t get to exercise.
  • It’s difficult to sit in front of a compute for several hours, especially if you don’t include a workout in the middle of the day.
  • Energy is your most valuable resource.
  • It’s less about the hours you spend and more about spending your hours well and productively.

 

Approaching Customer Feedback

  • Ethan draws his energy to work from customer feedback.
  • He gets more drive and motivation from knowing the difference he makes on people’s lives.

His Idea of Energy Shots

  • Most energy shots give you a jittery feeling that follows a crash.
  • Ethan’s energy shots provide a sustained amount of energy without the crash.
  • His approach in developing the products was a series of iterations and ensuring quality throughout the process
  • The caffeine sources in his energy products are expensive but organic, compared to synthetic powders in typical energy shots.

Tips for Improving Immunity, Energy, and Life

  • Immunity isn’t something you can simply turn on.
  • You have to maintain your health in the long term, and you can’t procrastinate.

5 Powerful Quotes

“A lot of times, diet is the first place to start. Like, if you're eating better, it's going to be easier to start working out, you’re generally in a better mindset, you're sleeping better, all those things.”

 

“Around health and wellness, you really just create momentum, and that can be created through one simple decision.”

 

“The most important thing I've learned is that you can really only do one thing at a time.”

 

“People say that your most valuable resource is time, but it's actually energy. Think less in terms of your hours spent and more in terms of how you're most optimized.”

 

"If you can create something and put it out into the world and have it be real and then have things come back to you, that's a pretty special experience because you're interacting with the universe."

Episode Highlights

Melissa's Life During the Pandemic

  • Melissa and her family started self-quarantine around March 10, way before the state of Utah set up its recommendations and policies.
  • She has also been struggling with her mental health on and off because of social isolation.
  • She continues to hold on to her gratitude despite feeling grief and thinking things will not be as they once were.
  • Her quarantine life has become similar to her regular days because she has been consistently practicing her morning routine.

The Importance of Routines

  • Having a ritual or routine takes a long time and a massive amount of patience and commitment.
  • Routines need consistent practice to get the hang of it. These help you establish a deep level of grounding.
  • She practices two routines—her morning routine and pre-bed routine—allowing her to have flexibility in the middle of her day.
  • Maintaining these routines have helped her mental health.
  • Listen to the full episode to know more about Melissa’s routines!

The Purpose of Cold Showers

  • Many people have been telling her to try out cold therapy to be able to function and focus properly.
  • Cold showers help in boosting the immune system and gives you the energy to navigate through stressful situations.
  • Singing in the shower also helps in stimulating the vagus nerve, thus, reducing stress.
  • Listen to the podcast and discover more benefits of cold therapy!

The Impact of Having a Support System

  • During this challenging time, social media has become a great asset to connecting with other people, especially those who are far away from you.
  • Even though Melissa has recovered for about 20 years now, she still gets thoughts about her past addictive behaviors.
  • Speak about your anxiety and have someone accountable for your fears, thoughts, and behaviors.
  • Join us and learn how you can also develop a reliable support system.

Melissa's Biggest Challenge Amidst the Pandemic

  • Her biggest challenge is setting and holding boundaries with herself and the people around her.
  • Women tend to carry the bulk of household and educational responsibilities on their own. There tends to be a mentality forced upon us that we need to be able to do it all.
  • Have conversations about your boundaries and figure out how you can navigate through this time.

 

The Importance of Asking for Help

  • Asking for help is the purest form of self-care and gift to others.
  • It is easy to offer help, but when it comes to ourselves, we always think we are an exception to that rule.
  • Women easily get caught up in the martyr complex.
  • Take time to reassess what you feel and whether you want what you are doing at the moment.
  • Be more clear about what you say yes and no to, and do not automatically say no to people.

Maintaining Relationships and Communication During the Pandemic

  • Melissa and her partner have realized that they are a team, and they are in this together.
  • She emphasizes the significance of being deliberate with your communication.
  • Your partner is not a mind reader, so be specific about what you want.

Melissa's Big Vision This Year

  • She has no other vision at this point other than for her and her team to survive this challenging time.
  • Melissa also wants to prioritize personal growth and to work in her capacity.
  • She also hopes she could continue to become more discerning about what she says yes and no to.

How Does Melissa Feel Radically Loved?

  • Practicing meditation every morning gives her enough space and time to think about everything she is grateful for.
  • She also practices encouraging people and sharing love with the people around her.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

“And I have discovered that as long as I have those two things (morning and pre-bed routines), the middle of my day can be a complete shit show. And I’m okay because I started the day on my terms, and I ended the day on my terms.”

 

“My cold shower in the morning is better than any cup of coffee, better than any antidepressant I was ever on. It’s like an instant mood and energy elevator for me.”

 

“It (routines and morning cold showers) gives me the capacity to handle stress in other areas of my life because it reinforces the idea that it’s not about what's happening to me. It is how I am choosing to respond to what's happening to me.”

 

“I think we have so many opportunities to accept help from people who we don't even have to ask—they're already offering. And I feel like accepting help is the freest and easiest form of self-care.”

 

On communicating with your partners: “If you don't ask for what you want—they're not mind readers—and if you don't get it, there's a really good chance that you're going to end up, you know, blowing up with everyone stuck at home.”

About Our Guest

Samantha Skelly is the founder and CEO of Hungry For Happiness. Their mission is to empower women who struggle with disordered eating and body image issues. Samantha also hosts The Hungry for Happiness Podcast and is the author of the book, Hungry for Happiness: One Woman's Journey from Fighting Food to Finding Freedom. She is also a visionary leader, entrepreneur, and speaker.

Changing Your Mindset For A Life of Abundance

Initial Introduction to Money

  • Her parents split up when she was at a very young age.
  • She grew up seeing these two worlds around money. Her mother has a more fluid relationship with money. Her father, on the other hand, is the complete opposite.
  • She grew adopting her dad's fear-based thinking. Samantha felt like needs to protect her money, or else she's not going to be safe.
  • Since then, she had to rewire everything in her system and rewire herself for wealth consciousness. Her parents’ money story is not hers.

The Lack Mentality and Wealth Mindset

  • Money loves to circulate.
  • We tend to hoard money because our mindset is rooted in scarcity and not having enough.
  • When we are not certain with ourselves, we look at the external world to find something to make us feel safe.
  • It is rooted in the feeling that we lack something.
  • We've collectively decided that money keeps us safe, even though it doesn't at all.

Changing Your Mindset and Your Money Story

  • You can teach yourself that you are rich, and money comes to you with ease and abundance.
  • If our energy radiates "wanting," we are telling the universe that we lack something.
  • Instead, you have to ask yourself, "What would the richest version of me do right now?"

Bringing Value to the World

  • Your financial health is tied to your ability to expand your value to the world.
  • It allows you to feel good, safe, and comfortable to create content and communicate your message.
  • We need money to build, serve, transform lives, and raise the consciousness of the planet.
  • We need to have a clean relationship with money. If our relationship with money is fractured, we're not allowing money to work with us. Instead, we are fighting it.
  • Having money is about giving back and using it for the greater good.

Getting Rid of Conditional Self-Worth

  • We link our bank accounts, the money we have, to our self-worth, which is the biggest trap and illusion.
  • We are so worthy, regardless of what we have. Even if we lose everything tomorrow, we are still lovable and worthy.

5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

  • “I can teach myself, teach my body, that I am rich, I am wealthy, I am abundant, money comes to me with ease and abundance, and it flows in and out effortlessly. And I add value to the marketplace, and I get rewarded handsomely for that—and I woke up every single day, during this time, because I put my ass on the line.”
  • “Do not look at your current reality and your bank account for evidence on where you're going, because that'll screw you up all day long. I had to fundamentally pretend I didn't exist in my reality; I don't really like the term fake it 'til you make it,’ but it's like, ‘be it until you become it.’”
  • “When our relationship with money is so fractured, and we're like, "Money is the root of all evil,” and blah, blah, blah—we have all these associations—we're not allowing money to work with us. We're fighting it. Well, we can't do that and expect to have abundance. And it's not about being greedy, it's about giving back.”
  • “And I think that's where we get so caught up and why we're so forced into hustling for our worth is because we have that link of ‘my bank account is inherently tied to my self worth,’ which is the biggest trap and illusion of all time—we are so worthy, regardless.”
  • “I feel radically loved when I am committed to my joy. And in that process of me being committed to my joy, I feel like the universe just dotes on me and loves me to be like, ‘Thank you for honoring yourself, and thank you for bringing so much light to your system so that you can radiate it out.’”

The Power of Knowing You Are Enough with Panache Desai

You have to be the first one to give the acceptance and love you deserve and need.

Episode Highlights

Panache's Thoughts on the COVID-19 Crisis

  • Panache has been staying vigilant with his family while undergoing self-isolation.
  • There are two realities present in today's situation. First is the reality of those who believe everything is going to be okay. Second is the reality of people who have been directly affected by the ongoing crisis.
  • The COVID-19 crisis is a time for a mass global awakening. Everyone must acknowledge and pay attention to it.
  • Something deeper is emerging during this time of uncertainty—our opportunity to reclaim the knowledge that we are enough and build our life on a platform of peace.

How Conditioning Led You to Believe That You're Not Enough

  • Your embodiment of safety, love, and fear stemmed from how your parents showed them to you.
  • Institutions can condition people's minds into believing they're not good enough.
  • Conditioning happens unconsciously. It moves you away from who you are, which is love.
  • When you change your energy, you can change your life. This shift happens at the level of emotion.
  • When you think you're not enough, it stops you from getting the life you deserve.

Why There Are No “Broken” People

  • People are not “broken.” Instead, they are conditioned to feel broken inside.
  • Those who feel broken inside compare their self-image to others and live their lives on the expectations of others. Various platforms like social media add to the pressure people give themselves.
  • Everything in nature is perfect and created by design. Your superpower is your uniqueness.
  • Embracing yourself opens up your potential and liberates you from pain, rejection, and judgments.

How Embracing You Are Enough Happens

  • Your hardships and circumstances prepare you for handling uncertainties in the future.
  • You have to recognize that you're enough. Everything you need when navigating your life in times of crisis is inside of you—realize that you're the solution.
  • Instead of reacting, respond to the situations unfolding in front of you.
  • Panache shared the tough circumstances he faced, which led him to becoming connected and at peace with himself. Listen to the full episode to hear his story.

What Panache Desires for Us During This Crisis

  • As you go through the crisis peacefully, you will pass through it gracefully.
  • While everyone is in self-quarantine, you have time to assess the state of your relationship with your loved ones.
  • While you have the time to be with yourself, assess what you value in life. Remember that as long as you're breathing, you are valuable.
  • A crisis is a great leveler of life; everyone is impacted equally. It's also an opportunity to go back to our natural state of being inside of us, which is peace.

Panache's Dream for His Children and His Advice for His 95-Year-Old Self

  • He wants his children to embrace themselves and receive love for who they are.
  • He would thank himself for going through all the hardships that made him stronger.

5 Powerful Quotes

“Who we really are is a luminous presence; who we really are is a unique divine expression.”

 

“We have to shift out of feeling like we're not enough into feeling like we are in order to live the life we deserve to have.”

 

“The more we conform, the more we suffer. Our superpower is our uniqueness.”

 

“The more we realize that we really are enough, the more we realize that our experiences have led us to this moment, to be able to navigate our way through this time, peacefully, and from a place of connection.”

 

“By virtue of the fact that you are here, and you are breathing—you have value. And that is more valuable than anything that you could ever generate or create within your lifetime.”
