In our Western culture, it’s no secret that there’s a pill for every ill. And while there’s certainly a time and a place for conventional medicine, it’s important that we recognize the multitude of healing modalities that are available to us. Unfortunately, we live in a culture that considers holistic healing practices radical or far out, but the truth is that many healing practices are thousands of years old and have science to affirm them.  Specifically, acupressure treatments are rooted in traditional Chinese medicine.

With a 2000+ year track record, this healing method is certainly something worth considering.  Today’s guest, Jessica Ortner is a New York Times Bestselling Author, producer, and creator of the Tapping Solution Meditation App. Jessica is here to share the fascinating data on tapping and how it can be used to heal anxiety, body image, inflammation, and so much more.

One of the first questions people ask when they’re getting to know you is, “what do you do?” Work has become so engrained into identity in our culture. But your job is not your entire identity, it’s just one piece of the multifaceted human being that you are. Job security is never promised, but even less so in 2020. That’s why it’s critical to create multiple streams of income and ensure that your entire identity isn’t contingent on the way that you make money. Today’s guest, Jemal King is back to reframe the way you think about careers and streams of income.  Jemal is one of the fastest-growing personal development teachers in the financial industry. He is the author of 9 to 5 Millionaire, and the owner of four multi-million dollar companies. Jemal’s personal story of creating generational wealth is a true testament to what can happen if you are dedicated, consistent, and driven. Enjoy!  In this episode you’ll discover: What can happen when you declare a goal or mission. How to change the way you think about your career path. The difference between a vehicle and a destination when it comes to money. Why making your profession part of your identity can be damaging.  How to think of your income streams as vehicles.  The importance of making good use of your downtime.  Why your level of exposure directly correlates to your success.  The power of putting intention and crazy faith into the things you want. How you can recreate the vision of your life.  The reason why diversity is so important when it comes to financial wellness. Why job security is an oxymoron. The power of having multiple streams of income.  Items mentioned in this episode include: Foursigmatic.com/model -- Get an exclusive discount on your daily health elixirs!

Did not feel like the Trump rant with Vishin related to health at all. As a country we are already so polarized, and I really don’t want to hear about politics on health shows. I do my best to avoid the negative MSM being blasted constantly. Love you and your show, didn’t like the negativity.

I really liked your show until Dr Allan Preston, part of the tea party. Very bias, and never talks about how sick people get, long term, and how infectious this is. You should of added vote Trump. Why not get Dr Osterholm on Shaun. Won't be listening anymore

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Every single one of your podcasts are full of great science, real information with fact behind it. America would be better if the WHO, CDC abd FDA would follow the same science.

OMG what an amazing episode and the perfect day for me to listen as I spent half my day having being triggered by my "I'm not good enough" story. I live in England and really enjoy listening to your podcast after discovering your book Sleep Smarter on Audible!! This goes up there as one of my favourite episodes alongside Joe Dispenza. Thank you so much for being you and sharing yourself so generously 😁
