What can you do when scary things are happening in the world and you feel helpless at the unfairness? What can you do when you want to heal someone or keep them safe, but you’re not in a position to do so? I had a different episode planned for this week, but with what’s going on right now, I felt like answers to these questions were desperately needed by all of us. So I sat down and meditated, and channeled the messages I received into a recording. I trust that this episode will help us all to create a positive impact in the world today and in the future too. Some of topics covered are: Focusing on what you can do instead of on what’s not in your control Protecting yourself from negativity Not getting attached to others reactions and opinions Raising your vibrations before taking any action The power of surrender and visualisation I’ve also included an 8 min long Visualisation exercise (from 12:00 to 20:00). Make sure to sit in a quiet place and try it out. It’ll immensely uplift your energy and feelings.

This short episode is all about why it’s so important to invest in yourself, especially when it comes to anything that’ll make your life easier, eliminate friction or help in your personal growth. And how to recognise the difference between impulse buying that gives you short term pleasure and spending on something that’ll keep you happier for the longer run. A few months ago, I invested in a ring light. It wasn’t even expensive, but I had kept putting off the purchase for the longest time because I kept wondering if it would be a “waste”. But when I finally did get it, it helped me create much more video content than I had before because I was not dependent on daylight anymore. Whenever inspiration strikes now, I can just sit down and start recording. The quality of my IGTV live videos and online workshops have also gone up noticeably, and this motivates me to do them more often. Now looking back, I’m like, “duh! why didn’t I buy this gadget sooner?” Haha This is just one example of the things I’ve hesitated to invest in at first, but after I did, it contributed to my life in multiple ways and paid off significantly. Mindfully investing in yourself creates a domino effect of opportunities and opens up your world. And I just had to talk about this on my show! Bottomline – if it will bring you more peace of mind, give you more time freedom, make your work smooth, result in self-improvement and knowledge upgrade, help you build meaningful connections to benefit you in the longer run…don’t hesitate to spend. Investing in your present life, your present self is just as important as saving up for your future. Episode web page with more details: https://www.veganosaurus.com/investing-in-yourself-episode-55

So I thought he’d be the perfect person for everyone to listen to at the beginning of the year. In this conversation, Adam and I have discussed: Motivation vs inspiration Using your life experiences to teach and serve other people Adding value and sharing implementable steps as a teacher/coach Building a side hustle out of your passion point Understanding your audience and niching down on what you create Respecting what you’re offering enough to charge what you deserve And so much more!

On this milestone episode of my show, I've interviewed my friend, mentor and inspiration, Allison Melody (@allisonmelodytv). Alli is the epitome of how shining one's own light can uplift you and set off a powerful, positive ripple effect on the world. This extra long conversation is packed with so much value! We discussed: overcoming great difficulties building and growing a business being an authentic entrepreneur who can change the world valuing your experience and efforts forgiveness letting go manifestation and SO MUCH MORE! A little over two years ago, I listened to my first episode of The Food Heals Podcast (foodhealsnation.com). It featured some very inspiring women. I can never forget that feeling of expansion I had as the conversation progressed. It felt like there was so much potential for me to tap into. I just knew my life would be irrevocably changed from that point onwards though I didn't know how. Flash forward to today, I've had the privilege of meeting All in person, attend the Food Heals Italy Retreat (the episode art photo was clicked there), and be a part of her Rise and Bloom Mastermind (https://veganosaurus.krtra.com/t/r56FUGTlmgdT) for the past year. My 2020 has been filled with so much growth and learning because I've been a part of the group. I've shared the kind of value I've found on the group in my conversation with Alli.

How do you know it's okay to let go of something you love? Something beautiful that's added so much value to the world. When you've poured much of your life, love and energy into something for many years, how can you move on and make peace with it? This week we announced that our restaurant of nearly eight years old will be shut down in January. It's a landmark in the Indian vegan community that has touched and changed many lives.  It's also been a huge part of me for the better part of a decade. This episode is filled with vulnerability and raw emotions. I've expressed the fear based thoughts I've experienced in connection with this decision. And I've shared how I'm finding strength to look forward to a new beginning with faith and hope. I hope it inspires you to look into your life with honesty. At your relationships, work, business...and all other aspects of your life to see what's serving you and what's holding you back. And I hope it helps you in letting go of whatever you might have lost in this past year or what you need to move on from now.

Mahathi Parashuram tells you why it's so important to make a big deal of  your "happy birthday" and celebrate it, and how that attitude of self-love extends into the rest of the year. The conversation is filled with lots of humour, mingled with so much deep, powerful advice. It's an episode that's very close to my heart because Mahathi is one of my dearest friends. We've known each other for a loooong time now and it feels great to feature someone I care so deeply about on my show. She is a mother of two, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. These roles she plays mean a lot to her. Mahathi cares deeply for the people she loves. She's passionate about her work in Public Relations at Grundfos and the impact she creates through it. She is also someone who has learned to value and love herself through the years. I've seen this woman grow and thrive through so much in her life. I am proud of her and blessed to have her as my friend. Listen to her and get ready to be inspired to unapologetically put yourself first, above all else!

What if your heart desires to take you in a direction to achieve something seemingly impossible? Would you follow it? Chef Yin did exactly that! She studied law and worked in PR, but when she discovered raw vegan cuisine, the passion to create it was so strong it didn't matter that she had no prior experience in the food industry, she got into it with complete dedication. The fact that neither raw food nor vegan food was known in Malaysia didn't stop her either. She just knew this was a path she had to take and bravely ventured forth. Today she's an extremely popular Raw Vegan Chef in not just her country but also across the globe. In this interview she talks about her journey, experiences and the practices she follows to keep going strong. I know you're going to find her story very inspiring! I mentioned my brand new course, Vegan Immersion Experience on this episode. Here's a link if you'd like to learn more about it: https://learnwith.veganosaurus.com/vegan-immersion-experience. Episode web page: https://www.veganosaurus.com/raw-chef-yin-episode-47/ About Yin: Raw Chef Yin is Malaysia’s very own raw vegan celebrity chef, author and TEDx speaker. She has a law degree but left her jet-setting corporate job to don a chef’s jacket instead. Trained at the world’s leading raw & plant-based culinary academy, she now dedicates her time to helping others make beautiful, delicious raw vegan cuisine. Due to the worldwide lockdown which prevented her from travelling internationally, she began producing various online vegan cooking courses on ice cream, cheese, tempeh, mooncakes as well as Japanese & Korean cuisine to rave reviews. Watch her on VELICIOUS with Raw Chef Yin, Malaysia’s very first (un)cooking show or buy her one of her 5 Ebooks or attend her pop-up dining experiences.

I'm always talking about how to follow your happiness and practice habits that make you feel good. In this episode I wanted to share how veganism is the source of so much joy in my own life and how going vegan can deeply impact yours too. I recently created a course called Vegan Immersion Experience. It takes a holistic approach to being a happy, joyful vegan. I have spoken a bit about it on the episode. You can find more details here: https://learnwith.veganosaurus.com/vegan-immersion-experience Between this episode and the course, my intention is to inspire and guide more people to embrace this beautiful, uplifting way of life. Becoming vegan is the best decision I've made in my life and I so want you to experience its magic too! Episode's main web page/blog post: https://www.veganosaurus.com/go-vegan-be-happy-episode-46

“Love yourself enough to say no to others demands on your time and energy.” When I pulled this message from my Goddess Cards Deck, it validated so much of what I’ve been saying for a few years now. The card is about Boundaries, and drawing it spurred me to speak about it with you all. Episode’s main web page: https://www.veganosaurus.com/set-clear-boundaries-episode-44/ How much of your time and energy are going into your work/business, family and other relationships on a daily basis? What’s left for self-care? And creativity? What about for just having fun and enjoying life? Just because you love your work, or enjoy any activity which involves you giving your time and energy to others, doesn’t make it eligible to be categorised as “me time”. It’s a common pit we fall into. This is why it’s so important to set clear boundaries! First the boundaries need to be defined between ourselves and everyone else, especially in our work and personal life. Then, after we’ve carved out time away from our work and other people, we need to create sub-boundaries between different aspects of the rest of our life. In this episode of The Feel Good Factor, I’ve spoken about how I’ve consciously tried to make this happen in my own life, and the immense benefits that have emerged. If you’ve been overwhelmed (especially considering the work-from-home situation we’re experiencing right now), and if the lines between different day to day activities are blurred, you really need to listen to this message! And as with many of my episodes, what I’ve shared here will especially strike a chord with small business entrepreneurs. I’m all about helping conscious entrepreneurs build and grow their business. That’s why I run my holistic Vegan Business Coaching program. I’ve learnt many things the hard way in my entrepreneurial journey. I’d like my mistakes to serve you with some valuable lessons and inspiration on what to do and what to avoid.

I'm a procrastinator. I have a tendency to put things off until the last moment. But there are also instances when I have so much energy and enthusiasm to get things done super quickly. Last night something made me contemplate on what makes me productive sometimes and lazy at other times. So the moment I woke up today, I recorded this episode. It's a simple thought but I believe it makes a world of difference. And I hope it helps you.

Ever wanted to do something that you thought might help others, but then hesitated because you questioned your own ability and authority? Imposter syndrome is a feeling of self-doubt. It makes you wonder what right you have to be doing anything or sharing any knowledge with the world, even though you feel called to do so. You're not alone. We all go through this at one point or another. "I'm too old to do this." "I don't have enough knowledge to talk about this." "There are so many people teaching this already." "What if others laugh at me?" If thoughts like these ever stopped you from writing/recording/posting/teaching something you felt passionate about, then it's not a co-incidence that you've stumbled upon this episode my friend. You are meant to listen to the message I've shared today.

Life is not necessarily easy just because you’ve overcome something. But you can use that as an experience to help other people. This is Tamar Medford's message to everyone. As you listen to Tamar share her story, you’re filled with an immense sense of hope. It intensifies your trust that at any moment you choose, you can turn your life around, as long as you have a clear intention, vision and deep commitment. Tamar talks about overcoming addiction, her book Hope Elevated, her journey into building a life that makes her happy and finding her highest purpose in helping others as a performance consultant/life coach. Link to the original blog post for this episode: https://www.veganosaurus.com/hope-elevated-tamar-40/ More about Tamar: Tamar Medford is a performance consultant, podcast host, and champion for people who suffer from addiction. Since overcoming her own 20-year battle with addiction and obesity in 2012, Tamar has dedicated her life to inspiring and empowering others to believe their positive transformation is possible too. She was inspired to start helping others and creating her podcast because she understands how difficult it can be to stay healthy and turn your life around. Tamar struggled with alcoholism and obesity until she hit her bottom. In early 2012, she let her troubled past inspire her to make some much-needed changes. Tamar realized that she could no longer do this alone and decided to ask for help. She started to take action and took responsibility for the life she had created for herself. Since then she has changed her mindset around health, taken control of her life and now wants to empower and inspire others to do the same.
