We will learn: How to call upon your animal spirits. How legends and stories can connect us with our nature. Why we’ve lost the sacred and how to bring it back. We tend to think of medicine as pharmaceuticals. In reality, medicine has been practiced since prehistoric times and it was more like an art form of knowledge and skill.  But what if we expand our view of medicine even further? What if we chose to see that everything is medicine? Everything in life is helping us to grow, evolve and expand in love. Everything is leading to our evolution. Our most difficult experiences are actually a gift. So today we’re talking about how you can recognize the gift of these experiences and how to move into a different state of being. Our guest is Asha Frost. She is an Indigenous Medicine Woman and a member of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation. She is the best-selling author of "You are the Medicine", and has guided thousands of people through profound and lasting transformation.

We will learn: The common barriers that make it hard for us to look at ourselves in an unbiased way.  How to ask for feedback and respond non-defensively.  How to embody humble ambition.  Whatever happened to humility?  Everyone in the world seems to have their personal brand: this is who I am and what I’ve done and how I look and everyone should follow me. The algorithm feeds our narcissism and as we’ve heard in several recent episodes, we’re literally living in a narcissism epidemic. So if society is built to reward narcissistic behavior, how do we consciously choose to balance out? Today we’re talking about how and why to be humble.  Our guest is Daryl Van Tongeren. He says that in its true sense, humbleness is the happy medium between self-denial and self-obsession: It grants the holder an accurate view of reality. By seeing where we have room to improve, we can grow. By admitting our doubts, we can learn. And by acknowledging our own worldview as one among many, we can truly connect with others despite our differences.

We will learn: How we screw ourselves in free-flowing arguments.  How to break through deadlocked conversations.  How to bring in empathy in times of disagreement.  Do you shy away from arguments because it’s just not worth it? Or do you run toward them, get nowhere and then feel like crap wishing you hadn’t? What I’ve found is that so many topics have so much emotion behind them, or dare I say programming, that both sides become blinded by their talking points and have stopped being able to see outside of them. So how do we get to a place where we respectfully converse? A place where we can come together and shave off the extremities in both of our views and meet somewhere in the middle? That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Bo Seo. He is a two-time world champion debater and a former coach of the Australian national debating team and the Harvard College Debating Union. He is one of the most recognized figures in the global debate community and is now the author of Good Arguments: How Debate Teaches Us to Listen and Be Heard.

We will learn: How we self-impose our suffering.  How to choose “feeling it out” over “figuring out out”.  A process called “painting forward” that helps you integrate new choices.  Did you know that we make an average of 35000 choices per day? Look back at yesterday. How many of those choices were you actually aware of as you were making them? The thing about those subconscious decisions is, we have more control over them than we think we do. So today we’re going to talk about five deliberate choices to help you realize fulfillment and joy in your life. Our guest is Amy Wong. She is the founder of Always On Purpose®. She is an executive leadership coach, author, speaker, and facilitator working with organizations like Airbnb, Salesforce, Roku, LinkedIn, Facebook, and more.

We will learn: The power of Irish keening for releasing emotions.  How to deal with fear around loss.  How to hold presence for grief, whether for yourself or a loved one.  There’s a huge spectrum for how people deal with grief. But it’s one of those things that I feel like we need a handbook for and we just don’t have one. We used to gather around to support one another for all major life events. We had collective rituals that helped us feel connected. That gave space to the grieving. That kept life moving when the griever couldn’t yet handle the little things. So what would that look like today, in the modern world? Today we’re going to explore some of the most helpful grief rituals that are worth bringing back. Our guest is Amanda Held Opelt. She is an author, speaker, and songwriter. She has spent the last 15 years as a social worker and humanitarian aid worker. And she writes about grief and creativity, and believes in the power of community, ritual, and shared stories to heal even our deepest wounds.

We will learn: The seven most common big feelings and how to move through them. How to put a positive spin on envy. How to bust through perfectionism by replacing avoidance goals with approach goals. Do you have big emotions? How do you feel about them? Are you ashamed of them? Overwhelmed by them? If you don’t have big feelings, have you ever asked yourself why? The problem is, we aren’t given a handbook for our humanness. So we look to others and we model them. Or we compare. Or we judge. Or we just pretend like nothing is happening. And then we suffer in silence and then wonder why things don’t get a whole lot better. But if we’re all going through the hardships of life, it doesn’t have to be that way. Even if you’re not big on sharing your emotions with others, there are ways to help that emotional energy move through you rather than getting stuck. And that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Liz Fosslien. Liz Fosslien is an expert on how to make work better, and co-author and illustrator of the best-selling book Big Feelings and the Wall Street Journal best-seller No Hard Feelings. Her work has been featured by Good Morning America, The New York Times, The Economist, Time, TED, and CNN. She has given keynotes about emotions at work at organizations including Google, LinkedIn, NPR, and Spotify. Links from the episode:  Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/240 Sign up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily notes from your highest self.  Get Mind Love Premium for exclusive ad-free episodes and monthly meditations.  Support Mind Love Sponsors See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We will learn: The dangers of identifying too closely with our reflections. How to transform your relationship with mirrors. 5 basic steps to start a daily mirror meditation. Most people know their flaws so well they practically identify with them. And many people can’t even stand to look in the mirror because the feelings of shame or repulsion are so intense. The good news is, with awareness and intention, you can use the same mirror to reverse these patterns. The mirror can be a powerful tool for self reflection and for finding the you underneath the persona you’ve built up over the years. We just have to consciously practice with it. And that’s what we’re learning today. Our guest is Tara Well. She is an associate professor of psychology at Barnard College of Columbia University in New York, NY, where she developed a mirror-based meditation called “a revelation,” in the New York Times. Her new book: Mirror Meditation: The Power of Neuroscience and Self-Reflection to Overcome Self-Criticism, Gain Confidence, and See Yourself with Compassion was just released.

We will learn: What we got wrong about toughness that actually was toxic. How to create inner confidence. Four pillars of toughness that we need to step up and do hard things. Struggle is a powerful catalyst for transformation. Some of the strongest, most fascinating and complex people in the world are people who have survived big life-changing things. But does that mean that those of us on top of the privilege pyramid - which is really anyone with a roof over their head and food on the table - are just doomed for dullness or apathy? I don’t think so. I think the key is to create our own struggle. But first, we have to remember how to be up for a challenge. We have to know how to sit in discomfort and willingly weather the storm. So that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Steve Magness. He is a world-renowned expert on performance, well-being, and sustainable success. His most recent work is Do Hard Things: Why We Get Resilience Wrong and the Surprising Science of Real Toughness. He is also co-author of the best-selling Peak Performance and The Passion Paradox.

We will learn: How to recognize the “shoulds” that are at the root of your doubts, fears, resentment, and shame.  How to call out the BS stories you create and believe about yourself.  How to stop beating yourself up over the “should haves” and what already happened.  Do you keep shoulding all over yourself? The energy of words is a powerful force. And sometimes the way we speak about a problem, about ourselves, about other people is what holds the energy that either keeps us where we are or helps us move in another direction. And sometimes, even something as simple as a change of words can be the catalyst for opening up to things we didn’t even realize was possible. That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Tricia Huffman, aka Your Joyologist. She is a mental health and mindset expert known for sharing real talk with heart, calling you to uncover and honor who YOU are.  Links from the episode: Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/x90 Sign up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily notes from your highest self.  Get Mind Love Premium for exclusive ad-free episodes and monthly meditations.  Support Mind Love Sponsors  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We will learn: How to understand the defining moments that got you here without placing blame. How to find presence, even when the present moment isn’t where you want to be. The link between radical responsibility and mindfulness-based emotional intelligence.  Whose fault is it that you are the way you are? Or that you are where you are? We tend to get tunnel vision when things aren’t going our way. But our limitations are all just perceptions. Instead of seeing them as roadblocks, we can choose to see what they’re funneling us toward.  But how do we finally move beyond blame so that the wider perspective is our default? That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Fleet Maull. Dr. Fleet Maull is an author and a renowned growth mindset teacher who delivers his training programs and seminars around the world both in-person and online through Heart Mind Institute. He’s a meditation teacher and founder of the Prison Mindfulness Institute and National Prison Hospice Association, all while serving a 14-year mandatory-minimum federal drug sentence, 1985 to 1999. He’s all about taking radical responsibility for your life.

Cultivating a healthy relationship can be hard enough. . . but what if you also struggle with mental health issues like depression, anxiety, OCD, bipolar, or a spicy little cocktail of several together? If you have struggled with mental illness, it’s important to have a partner that you can communicate with so he or she can understand your unique needs. So today we’re gonna walk you through it so that you feel confident navigating relationships, from that scary initial conversation, to the day to day challenges. Our guest is Allison Raskin, a New York Times bestselling author, actress, director and co-creator of the YouTube comedy channel and podcast, Just Between Us.

We will learn: What the Magnetic Memory Method is and how it works. How frustration hinders memory and how to release it. How to create memories that stick not just in your short-term memory, but for years and years and years. How good is your memory? If you learn something new, does your brain recall associated information you learned a month ago? It may not seem like a big deal if you need a reminder here or there, but did you know that improving your memory also improves your mental well-being? So the question is, how do we consciously improve our memories? That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Anthony Metivier. He is the founder of the Magnetic Memory Method, a systematic, 21st Century approach to memorizing foreign language vocabulary, names, music, poetry and much more in ways that are easy, elegant, effective and fun. He’s going to teach us simple techniques for memorizing the information that improves your daily life.   Links from the episode: Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/237 Sign up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily notes from your highest self.  Get Mind Love Premium for exclusive ad-free episodes and monthly meditations.  Support Mind Love Sponsors See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We will learn:  How to identify where you hold you’re emotions in your body.  How to identify your default movement patterns. How to challenge your movement in small ways to open yourself up for change.  What if I told you that the way you move impacts the person that you are? And if you consciously begin to move differently, your life could change? That’s what we’re talking about today.  Our guest is Erica Hornthal. She is a licensed clinical professional counselor and board-certified dance/movement therapist and she’s known as the “Therapist Who Moves You”.

We will learn: Surprising facts about lonely people.  How we can get better at reading people.  How to catch a liar.  Every über successful person I know is still most proud of their relationships. Relationships increase our life spans and even our health. Connection gives us meaning and purpose. So how do we master first impressions? How can we get a feel for someone faster? How can we figure out if someone is being truthful? How can we diffuse arguments faster or resolve conflicts better? That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Eric Barker. Eric Barker is the author of The Wall Street Journal bestseller “Barking Up the Wrong Tree”, which has sold over half a million copies. It was even the subject of a question on “Jeopardy!” His newest book “Plays Well with Others” was just released.

We will learn: How to say goodbye to unhealthy patterns of shame, guilt, and worry. The lies we believe when we worry. How to develop a realistic relationship with the present moment in a world full of distraction.  Wanna know what’s strange? The present moment is literally all we have, yet somehow it’s the most elusive place to be. Usually we replay things that have already happened, come up with things we should have done, or should have said, OR we worry about something that hasn’t happened yet. But guess what? You are the one with the power to disrupt the cycle to find peace and even guidance. So today we’re going to learn to tap into it. Our guest is Jeanne Stevens. She’s the founding and co-lead pastor of Soul City Church in Chicago, one of America's fastest-growing urban churches. Her passion is to help people wake up to their purpose as they pursue a life of wholehearted freedom.  Links from the episode: Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/X87 Sign up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily notes from your highest self.  Get Mind Love Premium for exclusive ad-free episodes and monthly meditations.  Support Mind Love Sponsors See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We will learn: Why we find it so much easier to focus on some thing we consider play rather than something we consider work.  Why it doesn’t work when we try to enjoy something.  4 techniques he calls the “S Words” that help you to develop control over your practicing mind.  When was the last time you practiced something in order to get better at it?  If you’re into sports or musical instruments you probably have a leg up on most adults, but even then, a lot of people just lean into the skills they already have rather than picking up new ones. The thing about practicing, or practicing well I should say, is that it’s a total present moment activity. Our guest is Thomas M. Sterner. He is the founder and CEO of The Practicing Mind Institute. He is considered an expert in Present Moment Functioning or PMF.

We will learn:  The consequences of secrets and how to know when to open up.  The distinction between secrecy and privacy. The psychology of “positive secrets” (i.e. a proposal, a surprise party, a promotion).  On average we each carry 13 secrets. 13 things that we are just unwilling to share with people. This is so shocking to me because I know how secrets can affect a person… and I’ll give you a hint: overall it’s not great. So what do we do about it? How do we know when a secret is harmful and how do we make it more bearable to open up? That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Michael Slepian. He is the leading expert on the psychology of secrets. Slepian has authored more than fifty articles on secrecy, truth, and deception.  Links from the episode: Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/X86 Sign up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily notes from your highest self.  Get Mind Love Premium for exclusive ad-free episodes and monthly meditations.  Support Mind Love Sponsors See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
We will learn: Why your mental health diagnosis is not your identity.  Surprising questions to ask your doctor when you receive a diagnosis.  Why our conversation about mental health has stagnated and how to progress it.  Did you know that there’s absolutely no way to measure or prove that you have any of the common (or uncommon) mental health diagnoses? This has a ton of negative implications including overprescribing and misdiagnosing. The other big issue with the inaccuracy of these diagnoses is that your mind is powerful. And most people begin to identify with their diagnosis. So today we’re talking about how mental health issues are diagnosed and how you can use this knowledge to make informed decisions when it comes to your mental health.  Our guest is Sarah Fay. She’s on the faculty at Northwestern University and the founder of Pathological: The Movement. She is also the author of "Pathological: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses".

We will learn: Why our drives for outer and inner success usually clash. How to activate your five core energies. Our three natural states of consciousness. Are your goals for your outer world and your inner world aligned?  Either, in the pursuit for outer success– material wealth, or wanting to be liked and loved, supported and promoted– you ignore that quiet subtle voice of your spirit. Or in your pursuit of inner peace, you struggle with money or strain relationships. So today we’re talking about how aligning your five core energies holds the key to success. Our guest is Hitendra Wadhwa, author of the forthcoming book, “Inner Mastery, Outer Impact”, Professor of Practice at Columbia Business School, and founder of Mentora Institute, an inspiring and personalized approach to developing leaders.

We will learn: The powers of a bittersweet, melancholic outlook.  Why our world is so blind to the value of our pain.  How to transform grief into healing, creativity, and peace of mind.  Life can be painful. We get hurt. Or scared. We lose people. We start over. So we feel the pain of fear or loss, grief or longing. Some say the highs of your joy are equal to the depths of your pain. So today we’re talking about the transformation that happens when we experience sorrow and longing.  Our guest is Susan Cain. You may know her as the author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, which spent eight years on The New York Times bestseller list, and has been translated into 40 languages. She also has a TED talk that has been viewed over 40 million times. Her new masterpiece book is Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole.

Would you please slow down the speed of your words? Subjects like this podcast need some tiny short time between sentences to think about but there's no time to analyze what you're saying because of your fast talking style.

A couple of weeks ago I had lunch with my bf and my family. During the outing I experienced a trigger from a deep wound. My instinct was to come home and lash out at him. To blame him for the way I felt and to tell him exactly how he needed to change his behavior. Fortunately, I decided to pause and try to calm down first. I decided instead to paint and listen to a podcast. This episode popped up and pretty much saved me from having had an epic blowout. I can't thank you enough for all the work you do Mellisa.
