We are living through a unique experience with its own unique lessons. It can be really tough, and we might have a tendency to try to numb some of it out. But the more you show up for your pain, and take a good honest look at what you’re going through, the more in touch you’ll be with your own knowing. Today’s interview is really fitting because we’re going to be talking about finding your lessons. Many of us don’t give ourselves the space for introspection, or we don’t acknowledge our feelings or we look to other people to validate those feelings or compare. So our guest today is Rob Dial. Rob is the host of a Top 100 iTunes podcast, The Mindset Mentor, with 2 million downloads per month.

Today’s episode offers a new perspective into end of life experiences, meaning what people who are nearing the their lives experience in those final weeks and months.  It might surprise you, but It will almost certainly comfort you. Insight into what that loved one is actually experiencing. And I’ll give you a spoiler, regardless of physical proximity, regardless of being physically alone, they do not experience loneliness. In their experience, they are not dying alone at all. So for those of you who have lost someone or even if you’re just saddened by the idea that you will inevitably lose someone, I’m hoping this episode will offer you all as much peace as it offered me. Our guest is Dr. Christpher Kerr. He is the CEO and chief medical officer at Hospice Buffalo and author of a book called Death is But a Dream. His insight is really interesting because he also has a phD in neurobiology so he’s able to have a balance of both the scientific and spiritual perspective. And as you’ll find out, he believes the spiritual side can’t be denied. We will learn: How pre-death dreams offer healing for both the dying and the bereaved Evidence for what the dying really experience in their final hours, weeks and months How we can best connect with loved ones and help validate these experiences in their final days Show Notes: mindlove.com/131 Learn more about your ad choices.

Everything is connected. I’m not just speaking in the spiritual sense. I mean physically too. Our minds and bodies work together, like one big machine. And just because you’re totally slaying one area of your life, if you’re neglecting another, chances the other areas are affected. Neglecting your bodies signals can lead to bigger health problems, money issues can lead to relationship issues, a chaotic home can mean a chaotic mind… like I said, it’s all connected. The alignment we’re talking about today isn’t just about spirituality, or even posture, it’s about how to have a truly aligned life. Our guest is Aaron Alexander. He is a pioneering manual therapist and movement coach with over sixteen years of professional experience with clients ranging from A-list Hollywood celebrities to professional athletes and everyone in between.  You may recognize him from the Align Podcast where he has interviewed more than three hundred of the world’s thought leaders on physical and psychological well- being.

Reincarnation and the concept of past lives has existed for thousands of years. Many people have claimed that they’ve remembered things from lifetimes before this one… and by doing so they’ve been able to heal trauma they’ve carried with them throughout multiple lifetimes. Our guest is Stacia Synnestvedt, a spiritual teacher and intuitive healer. She’s been following her soul purpose for over 14 years (this lifetime!) now. She helps people help deep changes within their life by seeing blocks and and empowering them with tools that are unique to a soul’s path in the present moment.

Right now, we are all being called to lead. It isn’t a title reserved for leaders of big companies or world leaders.  Everyone is a leader. Or everyone can be a leader, regardless of if you have any aspirations to start a company or a community. You can also be a leader in your own life. I’m not sure how the world will unfold by the time this episode airs. Maybe you’re still working remotely, maybe you’re just trying to keep your family peaceful while everyone’s home or maybe you’re just trying to keep yourself together. Either way, this episode if full of gold nuggets whether you’re leading a team, leading your family or just being that leader of your own life.  Our guest is Zoë Routh.

Most people don’t know how to properly care for themselves. If your life isn’t where you want it to be, if you’re not sure of your passion, if you feel burnt out, or you just don’t feel like you have any control over your life… this is probably you. Sometimes this happens if you didn’t have parents that took care of you, or sometimes, you just spiral when life throws you lemons. But here’s the thing… whether we have great parents or crappy parents, most of us still haven’t been taught how to take care of ourselves in a way that makes us feel like we’re thriving. Healing yourself or leading an intentional life isn’t about reaching this point of enlightenment, or one thing that made all the difference. It was a series of small decisions and commitments that began to heal one wound at a time. Regardless of your childhood situation, this episode has a ton of value, because it’s all about the little things you can do to start to build your life from the inside out, instead of the other way around. Our guest today is Tara Schuster. She’s an author, playwright and accomplished entertainment executive, currently serving as the Vice President of Talent and Development at Comedy Central.  We will learn: What it means to reparent yourself How to stop seeking approval from others A journaling ritual to start creating your life with intention Show notes: mindlove.com/127 Learn more about your ad choices.

Today we’re talking about raising your vibration and we’re giving you the why and the how to do it. The law of attraction is simple really. It’s the idea that your thoughts and beliefs and emotions create your reality. But we humans have a tendency to make things more complicated than they need to be. We doubt simplicity. But lately, the universe is making something very clear to me… and that message is go back to the basics: manage your thoughts and magnetize with feeling. It’s the one thing you can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary. Our guest today is Michele Blood. She’s like one of the OG thought leaders in spirituality and the law of attraction. She’s worked big names like Bob Proctor and Brian Tracy.

We will get through this. And I have some tips on how. Our guest today is Leisa Peterson. She’s helps people elevate their financial consciousness by realizing their true value and creating financial security for themselves.  I chose her to talk about money with me during this global pandemic because she teaches a really beautiful blend of financial strategy and mindfulness and spirituality… and I thought that balanced approach would be most helpful in times like these.

We are living through an experience during the COVID-19 outbreak that is totally unique to anything we’ve experienced up until now. This is a new world for us.  Because of that, there’s a lot of fear and a need to control. I want to remind you that there are infinite options of perception at any given moment. You choose your reality. You choose which energy you tune into. The hard part is that it’s so easy to get pulled into the majority. The lower vibration has an intoxicating pull. I ask you to consider though: what is the good of allowing yourself to be drawn in? There’s a difference between holding awareness and falling into the fear trap. So my goal is to bring you leaders and inspirational voices to help maintain your higher vibrations through all of this. Gary Temple Bodley is back with us to give us a higher perspective on the Coronavirus. He will teach us how to turn fear and control into love and acceptance.

Today we’re talking about a new perspective on The Law of Attraction, and my goal for this episode was to make it as practical as possible. Even for you skeptics, and even for those of you who just can’t see a way out of your current situation. Maybe you’re stuck in bad job or you don’t know what your passion is, or you just find the whole idea of following your passion to be unrealistic.  How can this work for you? How can you find alignment with a higher vibration of yourself? Today’s guest is Gary Temple Bodley, an author, speaker and an expert on the Law of Attraction, and teaching people there is more to life than what they are currently experiencing, that they have power over fate, and that everyone is a spiritual being living in a physical existence.  Gary channels a group of nonphysical beings that go by Joshua and Joshua has written a few books through him.  We will learn: What our thoughts teach us about where we are right now - even the negative ones How to better practice love and acceptance no matter where we are in our lives The exact steps to get your whole being into alignment with your highest vibration Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/122 Learn more about your ad choices.

Do you eat when you are stressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you feel like you don’t have any self control with food? As someone who suffered a 10 year battle with bulimia and eating disorders, this topic is extremely personal to me. Most people think of their overeating habits as just a lack of self control, but that is rarely the case. Our emotions are major drivers in our eating habits. Our guest today is Jessica Proncini. She’s an Emotional Eating Healer and the founder of Escape From Emotional Eating®. She is on a mission to help others use food as fuel rather than a way to cope, soothe or escape their busy, stressful life. She consciously created and specifically designed Escape From Emotional Eating from her own emotional eating journey because Overeaters Anonymous didn’t resonate and therapy wasn’t enough when it came to getting help to fully end her fight with food. Now being 100% free from her compulsions with food, she helps others do the same.  We will learn: How to tell if you’re actually hungry or eating for emotional reasons The four roots of emotional eating How to start healing your relationship with food Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/121 Learn more about your ad choices.

How much do you know about your period? How in tune are you with your cycle?  What if I told you you could optimize our cycle as a superpower. Optimizing your life but making decisions based on when your hormones will best support you. Women have a biological rhythm they experience every month that affects productivity, weight, sex drive, energy, and mood.  Understanding your cycle can speak to what you eat at different times of the month, how to exercise, and when you should do certain types of work you should be doing. Most of the science we have access to was all tested on men, so we’re only now discovering how women’s bodies actually work. Our guest is Alisa Vitti. She’s the founder of FLOLiving - a modern hormone healthcare company, and she’s a functional nutrition and women’s hormone expert, author of the period bible WomanCode and In the Flo.

This is one of my favorite episodes ever. When I started an entrepreneur, I had a lot of fear and self-doubt. What will people think? Will it work? Will I fail publicly? Will people talk behind my back? Will they believe me? Leaders, entrepreneurs, and coaches tend to seek growth, so we’re constantly evolving. So if you speak your truth publicly now, how will that change in the next few years?  How do you share your story and be vulnerable while still allowing room to grow and evolve?

And I will say this episode will be enlightening whether or not you’re an entrepreneur or a leader. Libby is self-proclaimed grandmother wise soul energy and you will be able to feel it. We will learn: How to embrace your imperfections and get over your fear of saying the wrong thing as your grow your influence How self care affects your compassion for others wherever they are in their journey How to build your success by showing up for other people’s success Show Notes: https://mindlove.com/119 Sign Up for The Morning Mind Love for short daily reminders of how freaking powerful and magical you are, straight to your inbox!

How’s your love life? Whether you’re single or in a relationship, what type of energy are you bringing to your love life? We think that love just falls into our lap, but the best relationships bring a conscious awareness and intention to what they want to create for themselves. It’s almost Valentine’s Day and for a lot of people it’s a day that brings up negative feelings.  But here’s a hard truth: You can pick and choose the things you keep and cultivate from any day or memory or experience, or even relationship. So today we’re talking about love. This episode has a little for single people or those of you in relationships, because in both cases, you have to make time and space for love, whether that’s to create a new spark or keep the old flame alive.

Have you ever hung out with someone and by the time you were done just felt like your energy was completely drained for no reason?  Energy vampires are friends, family members or coworkers who literally zap your emotional energy. They feed off your emotional, or psychic, energy.  They come in all sorts of forms: The Constant Victim, The Blamer, The Drama Queen, and most dangerous, The Sociopath.   A lot of times, energy vampires are people who lack empathy. They may be charming but they’re also crafty. They pin their problems on everyone else, they one-up you, they shift the convo to themselves. And for you empaths out there, they are drawn to you like a magnet. Our superpowers are completely disabled if we let energy vampires drain our life force. Today’s guest is Dr. Christiane Northrup, author of Dodging Energy Vampires. She has spent years compiling all the latest research on this, including stories from her own life. And she’s going to show us how to spot them, dodge their tactics, and take back our own energy.  We will learn: How vampires use others’ energy to fuel their own dysfunctional lives Supertraits of narcissists you are blind to Techniques to leave these harmful relationships behind and start to heal Show Notes: mindlove.com/115 Learn more about your ad choices.

Lol @ "I left home with *literally* only $47,000 in my pocket" and "the reason cannabis makes some people anxious is that it's grown indoors away from it's family and friends" 🙄

Another thought provoking and eye opening episode. Even if you think don't you have anxiety, there is mostly likely a reactionary behavior that behaves as such.

One of your best so far that I've listened to. It is very difficult to distinguish my intuition from my emotion. My emotions are so strong that the hijack everything else. I will admit that I have experienced alignment and path integration lately, but I still have a lot of work to do.

Really cool episode! I usually get about six hours a day, but when I open my eyes in the morning, I very rarely can fall back to sleep. I wish I could remember all of my dreams, but I did remember ones that occur during big transitions in my life. So interesting.

So how wild is it that I actually heard the newer podcast with Paul before this one? I have been feeling extremely conflicted lately after some energy movements (for lack of better terminology) around me lately and this was able to soothe my soul in just the right way. Thank you! 🙇🏼‍♀️
