Listen to Nova chat with Executive Medicine of Texas CEO Judy Gaman. Award-winning author of 7 books - including Love, Life, Lucille: Lessons Learned from a Centenarian - and a podcast host and holder of multiple degrees. Often featured as a healthy living expert. Judy explains her why – she loves to learn, and equally loves to teach and help others to learn. She had an “epiphany” to ask the people directly. We really know how to live a good life when we are young – but somehow, we lose that. But some never lose that or regain it – particularly those who live to be 100 or more. Nova and Judy talk about the difference between living and waiting to die. Judy speaks about, “the expectation that you’re going to be alive, things are going to go well, and you better be dressed for it.” Judy talks about how she reached a moment where she recognized her life was not sustainable as she was living it. After meeting Lucille, she found her joy in life infectious and inspiring. Nova and Judy chat about multiple life experiences and working to live life beyond – beyond the mundane, the expected, and mere survival.   What is your why?

Listen to Nova chat with author/screenwriter/teacher Sara McDermott Jain. Sara is an award-winning screenwriter and bestselling author. Creator of a book-to-script course and does other writing instruction. Her recently published book is Wolves at Night. Sara explains her why – it all comes back to the power of story. Writing has always allowed her to figure things out and put them into perspective. She also goes into the fear involved in writing and sharing a story a person might want to get out. Nova and Sara discuss how writing empowers. Sara talks about how the growth of her characters in her books reflects what we all go through in life. Sarah works with moving from fear to empowerment via the horror and thriller genre. It’s a natural fit for her because so much in life is about overcoming fears. Horror is frequently about something you must face – a familiar life topic. Moving forward tends to be about overcoming monsters (frequently metaphorical ones). That can lead us from fear to empowerment. Sara suggests that when you identify what horror movie bothers you the most – even just hearing the concept – might uncover something about your thought process, limiting belief, or something that scares you in real life. Going from fear to empowerment comes down to identifying the fear and then making a plan.   What is your why? Writing Fear Empowerment Horror Limiting beliefs Unleash Your Supernova
Listen to Nova chat with entrepreneur Oliver Smykacz. Oliver is the founder of the Be Light app. It uses a combination of light and sound to make mental health and mindfulness easier and more accessible to everyone. Oliver has traveled around the world and has a passion for neuroscience, light and sound therapy, breathwork, and more. He has lived in Asia and learned healing techniques from the monks. Oliver explains his why. He is doing this because he was running through life, traveling all around, and running himself ragged. But then he took a new path – and he was “guided” on his new course to give away less of his power and empower others, too. Being aware and being mindful of yourself gets lost. Learning that, he found new ways to reconnect. He talks about “subconscious programs” and rewiring our habits. Nova asks Oliver about unleashing our superpowers. Oliver gets into the power of manifestation, frequency, and energy – and how we can choose to control that. They go on to talk about true, genuine mindfulness and how they each define it. Making mindfulness and meditation easy and fun Oliver says that making mindfulness and meditation easy and fun is a matter of perspective. He goes on to explain how frequency is energy. And frequencies are our brain waves. Outside frequencies can be applied to stimulate our brains. The Be Light app uses a combination of light and sound frequencies for a new approach to meditation for mindfulness. Oliver talks about how activating the body (such as by dancing crazily) is a fun way to make yourself mindful. Then, you are in a good place to meditate and be mindful. Recognize and accept that perfection of practice is not necessary for mindfulness and meditation. Nova shares a profound moment she had with meditation.   What is your why?

Listen to Nova chat with #1 bestselling inspirational author John Strelecky. He’s sold more than 7 million copies of his books worldwide. Inspiration is what led him to his writing career. In addition to being an author, he’s a kayaker, surfer, and traveler. “What’s the adventure I want to be on?” John talks about the “adventure days” he would take his daughter on regularly (and still does). He talks about bringing in that “what did I love as a kid and why” and still living with that approach to life. Why am I here? John says his why is because he spent a time lost and feeling very alone. He felt nobody else asked that question. Then, when he learned others felt the same and asked the same questions, he decided he needed to be the “steward of the cafe” and help others find their why, too. Asking “Why am I here?” gets you in touch with your purpose, which attracts the people you need and who need you to you. Living your life as your dream life might seem bold and audacious – but why can’t it be you and your life? Every day is precious. What happens when you treat it like this? Having near-life experiences is more powerful than near-death experiences. John references his “Big 5 for Life” to this. “You are the game master. You’re the one controlling the game (of life).”   What is your why? Manifestation Adventure Finding your way Not alone Perspective The game of life Gratitude John Strelecky

Working on his mission statement was what gave Ryon his why – lead, inspire, and challenge the status quo to change the world. He loves to challenge the norms because he has always asked why about everything. Solutions always follow a question. Ryon initially felt as though he was holding back his energy by being humble and staying in his place – but he discovered that you can be “arrogant” and allow for freedom of expression. That clears some limiting filters, allowing for more freedom of flow. Quit chasing and start allowing Allow the energy to flow and the thoughts to happen – not necessarily by putting it all out there publicly. Allowing your true self to shine is a matter of wellness and wellbeing. Realize if you are chasing ideas that are not true to you. In the process of chasing, you may not be allowing true solutions and genuine ideas to come through. Allow the information to come in as pure as you can, rather than chasing the solution which might be biased by your current knowledge and life experience. You know that it’s coming – and that’s allowing. It is keeping an open mind to be flexible, intuitive, and in-tune to different solutions. Allowing an abundance mindset rather than chasing a scarcity mindset.    What is your why?
