Alexander von Humboldt and the Invention of Nature – The Greatest Explorer and Scientist You’ve Never Heard of
When I encountered a statue of Alexander von Humboldt in my local park and the plaque read "In honor of the most accomplished traveller of this or any other age", I knew I had to learn more about his life
Humboldt statue in Tower Grove Park
It turns out, there is a fantastic, award winning book about Humboldt: The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World by Andrea Wulf.
This is what I learned from Alexander von Humboldt
Amazing things about Humboldt:
* Humboldt was friends with Thomas Jefferson and Goethe and second in fame only to Napoleon in his day* Humboldt was the first person to describe many of the phenomenon of biology and ecology - it pervades out understanding of nature today * He was the first person to climb over 20000 ft* Was the first scientific explorer to do an expedition to South America* Was one of the first scientist to speak out against slavery by the East India company* Invited by the Czar of Russia to explore Siberia where he discovered diamonds* Related to the Prussian Royal family* Humboldt has more things named after him around the world than anyone else
Is Your Own Nervous System Keeping You Trapped? With Antesa Jensen
Today's guest in The Derek Loudermilk Show is a good friend of mine, Antesa Jensen. In this episode, we talk about psychological safety and, for how for so many people, this is holding us back. We believe this is super important to the next step in humanity.
I always get so much from talking with Antesa - she helps me see things in a new way.
In this conversation, I wanted to talk about what we need to know to show up more powerfully, lovingly and productive in our lives, and what I discovered totally surprised me.
The context of how we operate - our nervous systems, belief structures from society, how we think about certainty or problems and solution - everything is here for you to consider in a new way. How quickly you are able to grow and evolve as a person depends on how well you understand your own stress response and nervous system.
What you’ll learn in this episode:
* How to be authentic, vulnerable, and compassionate in the work environment* How to be confident charging high prices for your service* How your nervous systems keeps you from feeling safe* How to start to see the frame of reference you are operating in* What is psychological safety and why it is so important* How to show up resourced for everything you do* Why it is important to know your reactivity style* The pitfalls of certainty
"Most Americans don't even know what it is like to have psychological safety, they are in a constant state of reactivity" - Antesa Jensen
"I charge for what my clients are capable of doing in our work together"- Antesa Jensen
"One agreement we have in the west is that there are problems and solutions. But you can get lost in the tyranny of the How"- Antesa Jensen
"Create a relationship where you see both the divinity and the humanity in a person"- Antesa Jensen
"We have a responsibility to make sure that women don't just push men down as a means to pull ourselves up and create the opposite problem."- Antesa Jensen
"In the professional world - people have been leaving their vulnerability and authenticity at the door"- Antesa Jensen
"You experientially learn vulnerability by being seen and heard by someone" - Antesa Jensen
"Be skeptical of certainty - If you have an idea of your path, its not your path, its someone else's path" - Antesa Jensen
"Following a model too closely pulls you away from authenticity" - Antesa Jensen

Dreamtime – Can You Really Make Money While You Sleep?
Dreamtime is one of the most powerful tools I teach my clients for growing their business.
Using nightly dreamtime can be your secret weapon to making more money, having better relationships, creative problem solving, decision making, healing yourself, or faster manifestations.
I've been using dreamtime for the last 5 years - initially to be able to go on adventures even while I couldn't travel (because I was about to be a new dad)
The global pandemic has enhance the powers of dreamtime because so many more people are sharing the same experience - it amplifies the collective unconscious
I've had some amazing insights from dreams - which house to buy, which employee to hire, even co- dreaming with my son
I've even had friends go on dates after guidance I got in dreamtime
You can benefit from using your intent before bedtime - even if you usually never remember your dreams or don't have lucid dreaming experience.
