We will learn:   All about the human design types How to manage your energy centers How your type can impact your relationships whether romantic, friendship or business Today we’re talking about human design with one of the top human design experts I know.  Human Design is a combination of ancient and modern sciences. It’s a system that sheds lights on how you were built, and how to best respond to the world. It combines astrology, I Ching, Kabbalah and the Chakras.  It doesn’t just stop at your psychology, it also gives you strategies and techniques for making decisions according to that psychology which, for a lot of people makes life easier and more fulfilling.  When you get a human design reading, you get what’s called a BodyGraph chart. It looks like a really scientific version of the chakra system with numbers and triangles. There are four different aura types that each have their own Strategy. So by strategy I mean a way to approach your life in a way that works with your natural energy instead of against it. Today we are talking to Erin Claire Jones. She’s a Human Design Guide & Leadership Coach. She has helped thousands of people and even companies step into their work their highest potential. Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
We will learn: How to recognize an epiphany The stages of every life-changing epiphany How to utilize our epiphanies to their highest potentials. Have you ever had an epiphany? Do you even know what one is? We usually use it to mean a sudden revelation or insight… and most of the time I hear it used in those lightbulb moments of creativity… kinda like an “aha” moment. But I’m coming to learn it goes a little deeper. The dictionary definition is a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential *meaning* of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience. And the word “epiphany” dates all the way back to ancient Greece. It comes from the Greek “epiphaneia,” meaning “appearance” or “manifestation,” and was usually referred to the revelations brought to us by the gods. So it’s not just about a random insight… it’s an intuition realization about the the deeper meaning of something. Which I believe is our whole purpose in being in a body in this lifetime. To find the meaning in our lives. Our guest is Elise Ballard. She is the author of the book, Epiphany: True Stories of Sudden Insight and Epiphany: The Journal, which are all part of her Epiphany Project, a collection of interviews with people from all walks of life about their greatest epiphanies.  She is now considered an “epiphany expert” so I’m super stoked at the insights we’ll get from today’s episode.

How to Decide • 164

How to Decide • 164


We will learn How the hindsight bias screws with our decisions How to better identify the obstacles that might get in our way When to bring out our full decision toolkit and when to act quickly Why are decisions so hard? We should all know by now that our time is the most valuable resource we have, so why would we willingly waste it on things that are so trivial? Indecision is not cute. I’ll tell you what it is though… It’s annoying. It’s counterproductive and it’s a form of pain. And there are all sorts of consequences. We end up procrastinating so we don’t have to face the decision at all. Which then affects our self-belief because we stop trusting ourselves to keep a structure and finish things. So today we’re going to talk about How to Decide. Our guest is Annie Duke. She is a corporate speaker, and consultant in the decision-making space.  And she’s the author of How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices and Thinking in Bets, which is a national bestseller.  She is the co-founder of The Alliance for Decision Education, a non-profit whose mission is to improve lives by empowering students through decision skills education.  Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices.

We will learn: Multi-sensory healing - your senses are the portals for your awareness Why strong women often feel empty and disconnected inside How to stop outsourcing your authority Do you believe you can have it all? Or does a part of you believe that having it all is actually a little selfish? As women, we’re given mixed messages, about pretty much everything. Thankfully we live in an era of female empowerment so there are plenty of stories of women being successful and raising a family. But what I’ve found is that when it comes down to it… like when women are faced with the logistics of what it takes to have both, the choice becomes a little murkier. We wonder if it’s selfish to outsource our parenting, or if it makes financial sense or what we’re depriving them of, or if we’ll have the energy to succeed and still be a good mom. So today we’re talking to someone who has done it all. Cherie Burton is a pioneering spiritual psychologist whose mission in life is to transform women into authentically embodied and empowered leaders.  She is also a mother of six, an author, an international speaker and host of the Women Seeking Wholeness podcast.

We will learn: What makes a mentally strong person Why and how to do hard things How to push through self doubt toward our highest purpose Would you consider yourself mentally strong? Do you even know what that means?  Most people though equate mental strength with mental health. But according to the dictionary mental health is just the absence of a mental illness.  Often it’s our struggles that motivate us to develop mental strength because we realize that the pain of change is less than the way things are. But here’s the thing, we don’t have to wait for things to get so bad that we’re forced to make changes in our lives. We can choose to consciously create our lives based on what we want out of it, rather than just based on what we don’t want to happen. Well today we’re going to learn how to develop the mental strength that will help us lead our best lives. Our guest is Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and the host of the Mentally Strong People podcast. Her books, including 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do, and  are international bestsellers. She also gave one of the most popular TEDx talks of all time.

We will learn: The difference between body image resilience and body positivity?  How self-objectification destroys our identities and what to do about it How to create a healthy relationship with your body including powerful mantras and being more media savvy If you’re anything like me, most of your life you’ve had a love/hate relationship with your body. Actually, if you’re a woman, there’s a good chance there’s not a lot of love in that love/hate relationship. Approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and resort to dieting to achieve their ideal body shape.  Our obsessions and disappointment with our bodies isn’t healthy. It creates a disordered relationship with food or with exercise, but most dangerous, it creates a disordered relationship with ourselves. Today’s episode we’re going to explore an alternate vision for your relationship with your body. Our guest has a really unique perspective because as an identical twin, she and her sister basically saw themselves from the outside in, with a constant comparison and sense of competition. We will be speaking with Dr. Lexie Kite today. Both she and her identical twin Lindsay have PhDs and are co-founders of the non-profit Beauty Redefined and experts in the work of body image resilience. They reach millions worldwide via research-backed online education. And their new book More than a Body was just released today. Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
We will learn: How to release our resistance around things we can’t change How to identify subconscious patterns that drive our behavior in subtle ways How to relieve a panic attack in the moment The holidays can be stressful, especially if you’ve been financially impacted this year. There’s all the gift expectations and shopping and cooking and planning… or maybe sadness because you can’t gather or trying to figure out how to make this season special for grandma. Anxiety is really just a feeling of worry or unease about the future. And how your mind and body manifest that unease might be different. There are a few mindset shifts that I think have played a huge role in my being able to overcoming my anxiety quickly. First, I don’t identify with it. It’s temporary and this step is critical to trusting yourself to move through your feelings. Second, train yourself to look within instead of placing blame outside of yourself. This also puts the power back in your hands because you can change how you’re approaching the moment, but you usually can’t change other people or events. Once your brain is primed that you have more power than you used to give yourself credit for, then you have all sorts of tools for dealing with anxiety in the moment. And that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Jean Walters. She is a Transformational Coach and Best Selling author of 5 books specializing in spiritual and personal empowerment. She has been teaching metaphysical techniques and performing Akashic Record readings for 40 years. And she’s the author of he Journey from Anxiety to Peace: Practical Steps to Handle Fear, Embrace Struggle, and Eliminate Worry to become Happy and Free. Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices.

We will learn: How to stop resisting our stress How to turn stress into an opportunity  And how to stop being bitter and remember why you’re celebrating Stress is inevitable… especially as we’re right smack in the middle of the holidays, still navigating a pandemic, unemployment for a lot of people… and we know that stress has a pretty huge negative impact on our health… so … are we all screwed? No, not if we’re willing to examine our stress a little and change our relationship with it. It is actually possible to never have another problem for the rest of your life.  This is because events are not problems; they’re just events. Your resistance to them is what causes the problem.  But then the question becomes how do I do that? How do I step into a new mindset? How do I use life to let go of all my impressions of how things should be so I can also let go of the stress they create? Well, you have to become very conscious, especially of that mental voice that starts resisting whenever you think you don’t like something. And that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Dr. Dravon James. She is the founder of Everyday Peace and the author of Freedom is Your Birthright. Her whole goal is to inspire others to build the life of their dreams no matter what shows up in their lives- good, bad, or otherwise. Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit

They process stimuli and experiences. And the state of your brain is mostly a representation of its training. We create habits and patterns of thought and moods and reactions and if left unchecked, they start to feel inescapable.  Today we’re going to be talking about how to overcome what our brains are telling us AND a lot about meditation and how to use what we learn in meditation throughout the rest of our day.

Sign up for Mind Love Premium here. We will learn: How to bring more awareness to the energies within our bodies How to set an intention to hold space for someone else’s energy instead of being affected by  Some reiki techniques we can do on ourselves Today we’re talking about an energy healing technique called Reiki. It’s said to work on the whole body, mind and spirit. The way it works is a reiki practitioner “lays hands” as they call it, which really means they hover their hands about an inch above different parts of your body for a given period of time. And in doing this they help to move energy through your body, or even act as a channel and transfer energy from themselves to you. In most spiritual beliefs, our energy is responsible for a lot in our lives, so this type of energy healing can alleviate pain, reduce symptoms of almost any disease, promote relaxation, decrease stress and anxiety. There’s a growing number of cancer patients that swear by it. Even hospitals like Johns Hopkins have started incorporating it and patients have reported faster recovery times. So today we’ll be discussing is how to take the things we learn from reiki and apply it to our lives. Our guest is Nathalie Jaspar is a Reiki master with over a decade of experience. She's a graduate teacher from the International House of Reiki. She also trained in Zen meditation and Buddhism and she’s the author of Reiki as a Spiritual Practice: an Illustrated Guide and the Reiki Healing Handbook.

If you’ve ever dealt with an abusive person, you know what a total mind fuck it can be. Slowly but surely your world gets completely dismantled, like a frog sitting in a pot of boiling water completely unaware that you’re slowly dying inside. From the outside it’s like, “How did you put up with that?” But from the inside, it’s a slow grooming and conditioning process that gets you to accept a reality you never would have imagined for yourself. So how do you spot the signs before it’s too late? And how do you heal and move forward once you’ve made it out? That’s what we’re talking about today… the hidden tactics of abusive people, and organizations and how to put your life back together afterward. Our guest is Wade Mullen. He’s a professor, researcher, and advocate working to help those trapped in the confusion and captivity of abusive situations.  We will learn: How to spot abusive people early including the 5 types of secrets and common tactics abusive people use How abusive people dismantle your sense of self How to put your world back together afterward Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices.

We will learn: How the story you’re attaching to your breakup makes it that much more painful The difference between feeling your emotions and feeding them How to set a new standard for love Why is it that breakups hurt so badly?  We have a tendency to base our value on feedback from the outside world so rejection in a relationship can feel like rejection of who we are… rather than for what it is… just simply incompatibility. Breakups can feel like more than just losing a partner, it can feel like you’re losing your friends, your routine, the future you’ve been imagining, maybe your identity, and sometimes, even your living space or your dog or whatever you’ve shared together. So how do you start pulling yourself together when you just feel like a broken mess? And how do you make sure that each relationship is a stepping stone to something better, rather than just repeating the same mistakes over and over again? That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Amy Chan. Amy Chan is the Founder of Renew Breakup Bootcamp, a retreat that takes a scientific and spiritual approach to healing the heart. And her book, Breakup Bootcamp - The Science of Rewiring Your Heart was just released today! Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
We will learn: How to change your mindset about something while still honoring your emotions How to reverse hardwired patterns of negative thinking Simple tools for creating a beneficial mindset that even a child can learn Self growth isn’t just about finding the right tools… it’s about finding the right tools that work for you. And those might change as you change.  Whenever I start to feel like I’m making things more complicated than they need to be, I get back to the basics. “I am not my thoughts.” “My thoughts are habits.” “What I give energy to is what will grow.” “I always have the power to change my perspective.” A simple shift in perspective has the power to change my reality. Simple but powerful truths. And we need to keep them simple because complicated doesn’t work when we’re overwhelmed. So today we’re simplifying some of the most powerful mindset tools. Our guest is Barron Steffen. His story is so moving. He lost his wife unexpectedly and at the time he was already deep into a spiritual practice, so the way he handled the days after her death is just inspiring in itself. He also teaches mindset tools to children. So he can tell you first hand how simplifying universal truths is so helpful in a time of crisis. Sign up for Mind Love Premium here.

Our guest is Todd Henry, author of Motivation Code among other brilliant books. he helps people access their brilliance through speaking, writing and his company Accidental Creative.  His book motivation code isn’t just his own anecdotal findings.

We will learn: What does it mean to really hear someone or be deeply heard 5 Simple steps to increase high quality communication and create deeper, meaningful connections How to use social media to connect on a deeper level We are more connected than we’ve ever been, but for some reason, we’re more divided than we’ve ever been. There’s also more people on earth than there’s ever been before, but somehow, we’re lonelier than we’ve ever been. How do we come back to connection? What are we missing? I think we’re all so busy broadcasting our opinions and perfectly curating our images online that we don’t really get to know people or let people get to know us… and I mean the real us, not the Instagram versions of us. But here’s the thing… just like with everything else in life, that change starts with you. And me. To be the kind of listeners that cultivate deep and meaningful connections, we have to know how right? So that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Terri Lonowski, She has a Masters in educational psychology, and she’s the founder of Soulful Listening.

We will learn: How to tap into your creative brain to achieve more success How to flex your 3 core neuro-muscles A simple technique to eliminate stress, anxiety, self-doubt and fear  The most frustrating complex but frustrating tool we have is our brains. How do we make sure that we’re always building up our brains so that we can find more and more success throughout our lives… instead of just slowly tearing ourselves down? As we have life experiences, we create mental and emotional blocks that can prevent us from doing things like taking risks, or trusting people, or even taking action on things that matter at all. Our beliefs about ourselves and the world are the biggest drivers of behavior. Similarly to how we work out our muscles to keep them strong and feed out bodies to keep it nourished, we have to give the same kind of love and attention to our brain and mental processes. So that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is John Assaraf. He’s one of the leading mindset and behavioral experts in the world. He’s been on shows like Larry King Live, Anderson Cooper and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.  He’s been featured in 10 movies, including “The Secret” and “Quest for Success” with Richard Branson and the Dalai Lama.   And he’s going to teach us how to actually enhance the functioning of your brain in ways that will help you to master your thoughts and emotions so that you can achieve any goal you desire.

Post Betrayal Syndrome • 155


We will learn:  How do we know if we haven’t healed from a betrayal The 5 stages of betrayal - including emotions and mental symptoms A 4 step process to start to trust again This episode has an accompanying worksheet for MEMBERS ONLY. Log into your Membership Nook to access. What is it about betrayal that feels so much more personal than other kinds of pain? Why is it that betrayal hurts so badly? Why does it feel so unexpected even when often there were plenty of warning signs? And most importantly, what do we do afterward? Betrayals shatter our worldview, whether coming from a boyfriend or a friend or a family member, it cuts deep. And because of this there are some serious repercussions if we don’t learn to deal with it.  Betrayals can cause us to callous over so we don’t feel that kind of pain again, but in doing so, we also harden ourselves to love and intimacy and those Sex in the City kinda besties. And if we let that happen, the betrayer wins. That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Dr. Debi Silber. She’s the founder of the Post Betrayal Transformation Institute and she’s a holistic psychologist, a health, mindset and personal development expert, the author of the book: Trust Again: Overcoming Betrayal and Regaining Health, Confidence and Happiness.  She also has a recent PhD study on how we experience betrayal which made 3 groundbreaking discoveries that changes how long it takes to heal.  Show Notes: Learn more about your ad choices.

The American Medical Association has said that stress is the basic cause for more than 60% of all human illnesses and diseases. Yet we have all this stress living in our bodies, but did you know that we store it in our gut? There’s a really strong connection between the gut and the brain. So trauma and stress cause gut issues which can then cause even more mental imbalances like anxiety and depression. Do you see how everything is connected?

Hey, hope you're doing okay. I'm here to say I don't like the ads part at all because they're too long!! and I feel like by adding such long advertisement parts to each episode you're actually sending the message which says: I don't care enough about the ones who actually listen to this channel. Hope I'm wrong. but that just feels like that. Wish you luck 🤞🏻
