Breathwork to Control Energy and Manage Stress - 057
The human body is miraculous. It's easy to become discouraged with the rise of cancer and heart disease… but think about itMost of the population barely moves their bodies, the products we use are full of toxic chemicals, the food we eat is processed with GMOs, sprayed with pesticides, and pumped with hormones and antibiotics...When you put in perspective how much your body has to fight off based on your current lifestyle, it’s a miracle we’re alive to see another day.And then, our body screams for help through symptoms and aches and pains and we cover it up with meds.So if our bodies can do all this for survival, constantly, what else is it capable of?Today we are furthering our work on breaking free of the mental matrix that is our medical system and getting into some biohacking.We’re learning about breathwork. Breathing is our life-forceI’m beginning to realize that breathwork may be one of the most powerful things we can do to supercharge our strength, our health, and our life.The yogis have known for centuries what many of us are just figuring out now.Today we’re talking to Niraj Naik, aka the Renegade Pharmacist. While working as a pharmacist, he saw people taking bags of pills and always coming back for more, never getting better. He knew he had to do something different. After his own wake up call with a debilitating health concern, he changed his lifestyle, and now he makes holistic health and these powerful breathwork techniques accessible to all.Today we will learn:- How our breathing patterns are symbolic of our overall health- How we can control stress and our autonomic nervous system through the breath breath- A few powerful breathwork exercises you can do at home
Find Yourself Through Relationships - 055
Relationships are deeply woven into our experience on this planet. From the day we are born, we’re completely dependent on someone else.You’ve probably heard that our relationships are mirrors. I’ve always thought of this as a way of saying: How you see other people is a reflection of how you see yourself.But at another angle, your relationships with other people are your opportunity to experience yourself and to grow.When you’re in it, the growth can be hard to see. It’s actually most often in hindsight that we realize what we learned.But the more you shift your mindset to awareness in your relationships, you start to experience it in real time.Our guest today is Bryanna Dee and she understands what it feels like to let her relationships define her life. From a difficult childhood and a complicated relationship with her parents, to traumatic breakup.She was so concerned with trying to be the person she thought she was supposed to be that she was totally disconnected from herself, and as a result, also from others.Eventually through allowing herself to be seen and seeing herself through a new lens, she began to discover who she really is.The more connected she became to herself, the more comfortable she became opening up to others and the more connected she became with everything else in the world.Today we will learn:- How to go from losing yourself to finding yourself in relationships- How to approach relationships for your growth- How to have compassion even when you don’t understand someoneShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/055
Courage, Collaboration and Showing Up - 052
When we’re young, we tend to think the path to success is straight and clear. We get good grades, maybe go to a good college, get a good job and slowly work our way up the corporate ladder.But in reality, life is full of twists and turns. What we’re doing now may not even be in the same category as the legacy we eventually leave.If you would have told me in high school that in 15 years I would be the host of a podcast helping people to realize the power of their mindsets, I would have been flattered but pretty sure you had the wrong girl.I’ve always viewed my path as sort of random and all over the place, but just in crafting this episode actually, I realized how this experience perfectly laid the path to what I’m creating now.And now it’s getting easier. The ups and downs, the age and experience… even the traumas, and the work I’ve put into my life are all straightening out my path. It doesn’t seem quite all over the board.But it is interesting that even before when I honestly had no idea what my purpose was and still somehow there’s this perfect little breadcrumb trail of the value I can offer right now.Our guest today understands this completely. Jessica Honegger has done everything from midwifery in Bolivia, to getting a Masters in Education, to flipping homes in Austin, Texas.It’s only in reflecting back does she see the common thread… which was a desire to find way s to create meaningful opportunity for others.During a trip to Kenya in her teens she first saw the effects of global poverty. That trip ignited the first sparks of the desire to help people with less privilege than us.After having two kids, she decided to extend her family by adopting a boy from Rwanda. But she didn’t have the money.She’ll tell you all the details but basically what began as an idea to make some extra cash to adopt a child turned into a $17 million global business empowering women.Today we will learn:- How to overcome fear and go in scared- The power of collaboration- How to multiply your ideas with an invisible counselShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/052
Chakra Balancing - 050
The chakras are your energy centers. The entire universe is made up of energy and as you scale things down its almost as though you have a smaller universe within you.In a healthy, balanced person, the 7 chakras provide exactly the right amount of energy to every part of your body, mind and spirit.But, if one of your chakras is too open and spinning too quickly, or if it is too closed and moving slowly, both your physical and mental health can suffer.By learning about the 7 chakras, you can start to heal physical, emotional and spiritual imbalances. And you can become more in tune with the natural energy cycles of your bodyIt’s like the spiritual science they don’t teach you in schools.Did you know you can even tell if people have a chakra imbalance by their posture and the way they hold their bodies?I’m so excited about this episode because this is the most fun I’ve ever had learning about chakras.Today our guest is Dr. Athena Perrakis. She is the Founder and SEO of Sage Goddess, the world’s largest source of sacred tools and metaphysical education. Each week, Sage Goddess reaches millions of people across the globe. Her metaphysical experience spans more than 30 years and she's an expert in gemology, astrology, Tarot, aromatherapy, Reiki, and herbal medicine.Today we will learn:- All about the 7 chakras in a way that’s practical and helpful for real life- How our chakras become imbalanced and how to heal them- Witchy things to maximize the energetic power of HalloweenShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/050Sponsors:- citizenrypodcast.com/MINDLOVE (use code MINDLOVE)- candidco.com/MINDLOVE (use code MINDLOVE)- mylola.com (use code MINDLOVE)- calm.com/MINDLOVE

Rise from Rock Bottom - 049
I’m really grateful for my life right now, but there’s no way I would be in this position right now, if it wasn’t for all that pain I endured.When you face challenges, you don’t just rise to where you were before life threw shit bricks at you. You usually rise above it… sometimes higher than you ever thought you would go.When you’re still dealing with the hardship, it can be hard to see the big picture… or any good that could come of it.But the truth is, our biggest challenges can be our greatest gifts. It just depends how you handle it.You can either let an obstacle stop you in your tracks… let the pain takeover. Or you can face them head on and try to find your way around them.Our guest today is Danette May. Leading Health Expert, and the founder of Mindful Health, LLC and The Rise movement. She’s a world renowned motivational speaker, #1 best-selling author of seven health and women empowerment books,Her rise began after losing her son during childbirth, getting divorced, and finding herself with $47 to her name. All one after the other. It was then that she decided to stop being a victim and rewrite her story. She transformed her life from having $47 to her name, to operating as a single mother, to owning a $20 million dollar business helping women around the world. She now has a following of people around the world.We will learn:- how to turn your mess into your message- how to find strength in our weakest moments- the science behind the woo woo like manifestation and money as energy Show notes: https://mindlove.com/049

Loneliness and Connection - 048
Loneliness is a real problem. Lonely people aren’t just sadder, they are actually unhealthier and they die younger.Loneliness raises stress levels, impedes sleep, and makes depression and anxiety worse.And the scariest part is, loneliness is becoming a bigger problem. Ironically, even though we’re more connected than we’ve ever been through technology, in the physical realm, we’re more disconnected than we’ve ever been.America’s suicide rate increased by 25% between 1999 and 2016.So if connecting people across the globe instantly isn’t helping our loneliness, what can we do?Today we talk to Teal Swan, author of several books including The Anatomy of Loneliness: How to Find Your Way Back to Connection.As a survivor of severe childhood abuse, Teal Swan knowns loneliness and depression. But to make things more interesting, she was also born with a range of extrasensory abilities, including clairvoyance, clairsentience, and clairaudience.Today she uses her extrasensory gifts as well as her own harrowing life experience to inspire millions of people towards authenticity, freedom and joy. Her worldwide success has earned her the nickname “The Catalyst.And at the end of this podcast I’m also going to address a little bit of controversy so stay tuned for that.Today we will learn:- What really causes loneliness- Why we push away people close to us- How to begin to find real and lasting connectionShow Notes: https://mindlove.com/048

I am really enjoying the content of this podcast. I will say, however, that it is very obvious that you re-record your questions and comments and then edit together the show. There is a staged, tense, presentational quality to your part of the dialogue. please just relax. you don't need to be so loud or forced. you know what you're doing, so trust that and get out of your own way. or better yet, let us hear your original part of the interview. it would be so much better. thanks for the great work.

I have been listening to the recordings everyday on my drive to work. I have never been more inspired to just be me and to learn more about myself. I started my personal journey about 2 years ago when my mom/bestfriend/world pass away. I was a full blown alcoholic who had no control over life I was 30 years old and felt passion about life but I just could live it. My pain was just do much. I knew there had to be more out of life. Looking to find who I truly am and find freedom of my mind. This podcast has been a moving stepping stone for me to dig deep. You are truly a remarkable person. Thank you for making this podcast.

rrp I don’t think anything is wrong with someone who laughs a lot. Maybe it’s just tremendous inner joy. Personally I found her laugh lovely and contagious 😊

I’m very glad my boyfriend introduced me to this podcast. I downloaded cast box just to listen to mind love. Melissa has a great voice. I wish there was a episode every day lol. I feel at this point in my journey I totally need to love myself and look within. The content in the podcast is so great I get so excited when there’s a new episode and when my bf gets home we talk about the episode and what we learned from it. I have recommended this podcast to my friends and I hope they listen to it.

Deep Sukhwani There’s under 4 mins and of ads for each hour long episode bunched into two breaks which is less than most sponsored post casts. I sometimes spend days on a one episode for you to consume, learn and grow for free. I consider this a fair trade off 😊

Mind Love is one of my favorite podcasts. I always feel refreshed but thoughtful after episodes and each episode explores different areas that I have been curious about. I find that the host Melissa and I have similar backgrounds (ED, abusive relationship, anxiety and drinking issues) and I appreciate that she doesn't bury those issues. It has encouraged me to look into those things with honesty instead of shame and apply new ideas and information to my human experience.

whoa. I need to pause, 40 sec in. it was jolting when you through off Woke like it had no meaning, and actually said it has no meaning. you were right, it a trendy word, but it has serious meaning and your white listeners wouldn't be hurt to know it loosely is to be aware of the struggle of minorities, particularly black history. great, now I can go on in peace. i look forward to this. graciously, ...

Matt Siler Hey Matt! Sorry I jolted you. I don’t meant to say it has no meaning. I only meant the way people throw it around now seems to have lost its meaning. It’s even being used by skeptics as an insult. Doesn’t mean we can’t take it back and revitalize it!
