    Effect on Emotions
    Being mindful has been very important, especially in situations of high stress. So if you have a stressful event anywhere, your first instinct is to scream and yell and carry on. But if you take a deep breath and view the situation in a different light, it changes your action plan, which changes your outcome.

    Thoughts on Breathing
    When you take a deep breath and count to ten, that's how long it should take you to breathe in and breathe out. It gives you space between you and what's happening and it also calms all the organs in your body and it brings your dopamine and your adrenaline down. When you do that, you can function better and make better executive decisions.

    Effect on Emotions
    Then they're not overpowering. I've, I've been able to observe them, not identify with them. When I identify with them. I feel like they overtake my whole experience. When I observe them, I realize that there's a witness observing my emotions. And because there's a witness observing them, I know that I am not them. So then I can shift and change them.

    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathwork is the ability of using your breath to release the addiction to the cognitive mind, the monkey mind, the reptilian brain so that we can drop deeper into our bodies and actually use the energy of our heart to navigate the world, rather than the ego and the survival brain.

    So this girl at school, her name was Isabella. She told the whole school that I went to fat camp, and that's why I was skinny and I was so upset, I was so pissed. And it just was like really awful. Because I was so young, I just tried to defend myself against her versus knowing in my truth that that's not true.

    Podcast: Be Version 2.0 of Yourself

    The Risk of Social Media
    The huge problem is social media because when guys start looking at Instagram, all these girls try to get more likes by showing themselves on Instagram, and this becomes a huge trigger.
    We are bombarded today by all these messages about sexuality, that sexuality is good, and that it's okay to show your body in a very vulnerable way like they do on Instagram.

    Building Awareness Through Mindfulness
    We certainly need to be in touch with our emotions through meditation and mindfulness. We can be more in touch with our true emotions and I think that we can also build better relationships with other people through being mindful. It creates a more healthy individual.

     Similarities Between P*&n Detox and Losing Weight
    One of the similarities is spending all your mental energy on your addiction or thinking about, let's say, p*&n or food or fighting your thoughts. It just doesn't leave any headspace for you to think about what the real problem is.
    The root cause is that psychological deficit, but when you go on a smart diet, you do whatever works for you. You just start eating cleaner and then you'll notice that you don't crave food that much anymore. And because you don't spend that mental energy on thinking about food, planning food, and so on, you realize that there is something bigger; that this is why I was actually overeating. And that could be a relationship going wrong.

    Trauma As A Cause of a P*&n Addiction
    The most common example is that people get exposed to this habit very early on. Their brothers were watching it, or their parents were watching it, they saw it and they got hooked. And this is definitely a psychological trauma because a six-year-old is not supposed to see things like this.
    Another example, which is also very common is parents who were achievers. And they pushed their son or their daughter to come to me for help. In some cases they push too much. They had very high expectations and on the other hand they did not give much love. So the person feels that they were not loved enough. And that's why they're always not enough, even though they may be 30 or 40 years old now.

    Effect on Emotions
    Going back to my original definition of mindfulness, self-awareness. A lot of times when I can just say, Oh, I'm angry, what am I angry about? Alright, let me sit with this for a minute. It's easier to process emotions when you can be fully aware of what they are, and where they're coming from. Knowing that sometimes not about what it's about, and finding the actual original source of those emotions. Everyday Crystal Healing

    Thoughts on Breathing
    I think breathing is such an important aspect of it. For me, it's the best way to go from the sympathetic, nervous response to the parasympathetic nervous response going from flight or fight or flight is to rest and digest and bring yourself internally when you're meditating. Are you doing yoga or just sitting at your desk, focusing on your breath and getting rid of all the noise? This brings you back to yourself and the power of everyday crystal healing.

    Bullying Story
    I had a difficult relationship with my mother. She had narcissistic tendencies, she has since passed away. But I didn't really understand that or know that growing up. And when I was a young adult, I was very much aware from my upbringing that my self-worth rested in someone else's opinion of me, particularly hers.
    I didn't know that was not accurate, so I made a lot of choices based on people-pleasing and making sure that everybody else was happy and finding my worth in other people. And then what I found that my now ex-husband, also has narcissistic tendencies.
    It wasn't until after divorcing him and finding my worth and finding self-love; that has been the key to the turnaround in my life. Then I realized that those relationships were not healthy, that my self-worth resides in my mere existence, and that I do not need to please other people to find my own happiness. That is what attracts the joy and the beauty that I have in my life. Everyday Crystal Healing

    Bridging the Gap between Spirituality and Science; D. Neil Elliott

    Bridging the Gap between Spirituality and Science; D. Neil Elliott

    D. Neil Elliott was highly educated, owned a profitable consulting firm, and had a successful career and an amazing wife and family. But things were not all they seemed to be … Neil was facing a lot of challenges. In a phrase, he was in a dark place. Quite by accident, he discovered a Higher Road. As he traveled that road, he found the key to transforming his life. Over the course of the following year, Neil lifted himself to an inner state of love, peace, joy, and abundance. His perspectives on life changed entirely. His troubles and tribulations were his impetus to find the key that enabled him to revolutionize his life. He learned that the search for a better life does not entail positive thinking, saying affirmations, chanting mantras, or traveling to India to sit at the feet of a guru—or any other popularized method of “finding yourself.” …The key? To ascend in both spiritual perception and truth, you need to use the right process to break through your entrenched, human-ego barriers.

    Effect on Emotions
    When you go through this process, mindfulness is part of the tool of helping me be aware of what I'm doing in the moment and with conscious thinking. But actually understanding this foundational stuff, allows that mindfulness to actually give me a different perspective of it. So it's actually becoming more powerful for me; without knowing what I now know about our truth of being or the source of where we come from and why we're here.

    Thoughts on Breathing
    So when you are anxious or at a heightened state of anxiety, whether that's something that's exciting or fearful, for instance, if you can stop and bring your breath and be conscious and aware of your breath and slow it, the mind controls the body, the breath controls the mind.
    So if you can actually breathe, you can start to control the anxiety and subdue the anxiety; whatever the source of that is. So breathing is very important in terms of the whole process of getting control of your thinking. Bridging the Gap Between Spirituality and Science

    Bullying Story
    I was coming home from school. I don't know how old I was, there was a black child. So a black family moved into this community back in the 60s, of all white people. And there was this black child, and he was older than me. So maybe he was in grade five or grade six.
    There were three older white boys, the same age as this black boy. And they were degrading this boy. They made them kneel down on the ground. I don't want to get into all kinds of specifics on this, but they made him kneel into the ground and they were spitting on him and calling them names.
    I was like in grade three. I felt sorry for that kid; he didn't deserve that. At the time I felt like these kids should not be doing this. But I thought if I intervened I'd get the crap kicked out of me. So I avoided it but part of me right now would say, I kind of wish that little boy would have had the fortitude to step up and say stop that, even if I got beat up.
    But you know, I didn't. It was a lesson that has stuck with me about how we treat other people.  Bridging the Gap Between Spirituality and Science

    I'm naturally hot-headed. My trigger button is pretty hot. So listening to a self-hypnosis recording, about not being triggered has helped me tremendously to be able to notice when I'm triggered, to be able to disassociate, and hit the cool button instead of the hot button has absolutely changed my life. And every time I noticed that I'm getting to that place again, I put that recording on and it reels me right in.  Hypnotic Approach to Wellness

    Thoughts on Breathing
    My favorite, I guess it's not a technique, it's more of a mindfulness technique and it's really a hypnotic induction. So to notice that when I breathe in how the air is cool and refreshing, and to notice that when I exhale, it's warm and relaxing.
    And doing that just a few times puts me into a beautiful, trance-like state, or depending on the circumstance, it reminds me that it is safe to be here now. Hypnotic Approach to Wellness

    Bullying Story
    So in middle school, I don't want to say that I was bullied because I saw people, I saw friends being bullied. And that was kind of different than being picked on a little bit. I was very small for my age, sometimes I was referred to as the runt of the family. I was smaller than everyone even though I was the oldest.
    I was even called an Oompa Loompa for being so tiny and short. So those things kind of stuck with me but as far as being bullied, if you've ever ridden the school bus, bullying happens on the school bus.
    So I drove my son to school every day. And I think that deep down, I wanted to protect him from what happened on the school bus.
    I remember one time, some boys in the back of a bus, one boy was holding down the arm of a more scrawny kid. And the other one was just as far as I could tell they were going to break his arm. Therefore, I think mindfulness could have helped if I would have had the courage to say something. Hypnotic Approach to Wellness
