Becoming A Modern Mystic & Complete Surrender | Michael Sandler 2nd Interview
Wanting to have control over your life is a perfectly normal human desire, but it’s not always helpful or healthy. Sure, it’s okay to set up your life in a way that allows you to conquer the chaos: create a schedule, set deadlines, hold yourself accountable, and learn to control your thoughts so that they don’t control you. When we’re attached to outcomes in our lives, it quickly leads to suffering and pain. We are co-creators of our lives, but we can’t control what happens. Truth is, it’s really not up to us to figure out.
Once we can detach from trying to control and plan life, we’re no longer blocked, but instead, open to receive life’s magical moments. Take a moment to remember a time when you felt blissful, in the flow or you were manifesting things you wanted. You were most likely in a space of detachment and not focused on trying to control any one thing, therefore open to receive new possibilities. This state of being is trust and surrender in the purest form.
And in this episode, I’ll welcome back best-selling author, speaker, entrepreneur, and the co-host of the popular Inspire Nation show, Michael Sandler, to discuss that and dive into so many more beautiful things like really leaning into desire, trust and surrender, and how things absolutely always work out - even if we have no idea in the moment how that’s going to happen. Join us and by the end you’ll definitely have a lot to work with if you’re looking to shift towards a better version of yourself.
About Michael Sandler: Michael Sandler is the co-host of the popular Inspire Nation Show, a transformational, self-help, spiritually focused podcast and YouTube channel, along with his wife, fellow coach, and teacher, Jessica Lee. He is a best-selling author, speaker, entrepreneur, visionary, coach, and the co-creator of Inspire Nation University and the Automatic Writing Experience online course.
Having been a world-class athlete and coach, competing at the international level in cycling, along with being a competitive speed skater, Ironman triathlete, and runner, Michael has applied those same training skills to being a life coach to teachers, leaders, and visionaries. He is a life-long meditation practitioner and meditation teacher. Two near-death accidents led to the conception of the Inspire Nation show, the creation of the Automatic Writing Experience, and the writing of this book. These devastating accidents led Michael to a much deeper understanding about the world, of Spirit, and of our connection to something greater than ourselves. He calls this "getting the big picture" and from that this book emerged.
Once driven purely by performance and results as an endurance athlete, Michael survived the near-fatal accidents that cracked his heart open and helped him discover a kinder, gentler way of moving through life, one that arguably makes an even greater impact on others and the planet. That's what he calls being an open-hearted warrior, and to his mission to elevate consciousness, shift humanity, and help people truly discover their greatest self. Despite twin titanium femurs and hips, as a result of the accidents, he continues to run, skate, bike, and play in the mountains or explore the world with Jessica, their daughter Hana, three kitty cats, along with Roo Roo the Wonder Rooster, always in prayer, always connected to Spirit.

Man Up?? Spirituality & Masculinity| Guy & Matt Omo
#224 Throughout the years running our Live in Flow retreats and events, we’ve noticed that men often tend to shy away from anything remotely spiritual. Their reluctance is caused by a number of reasons: some see it as unmanly and associate it with weakness and passivity while others simply don’t think it will really work. As a result, a lot of men end up avoiding the very practices that could greatly enrich their professional and personal lives.
Men need some form of meditation and self-reflection in their lives just as much as women. Some studies have shown that they are affected by depression at the same rates as women, but they are far less likely to admit they have a problem, let alone seek help out of fear that the simple act of asking for help is an admission of weakness. Instead, they feel they should simply “man up” and soldier on.
While it takes many forms, spirituality is ultimately about introspection and self-knowledge, and a greater awareness of who we are, what we love, and why we do the things we do. The answers to these questions are the key to succeeding in a world where men are increasingly afflicted by depression, anxiety, and a loss of purpose or meaning. It is in that spirit that Matt Omo and I did this episode to dive into some of the most common reasons men are skeptical of spirituality, and why they don’t need to be worried at all.
About Matt Omo: Matt Omo is a leader of the sound healing movement in Australia with over 15 years of experience working with a variety of sound healing techniques bridging cultures and traditions from around the world. The work and awareness around sound healing and its benefits are growing every day. Matt is developing new programs and products to meet this need and continue to support people in discovering the benefits of the healing power of sound.

My Surrender Experiment: The True Power of Complete Surrender | Wayne Kelly
#223 Most entrepreneurs are Type A’s. This means they are constantly pushing themselves to their next big goal, next milestone. While one may very well achieve business success, they’re almost always likely to be left thinking “What’s next”. This constant push towards new goals will eventually leave most exhausted and unfulfilled. So what is the other way?
In this episode, I welcome Wayne Kelly, a professional electrician and co-owner of a hugely successful building company who can attest to exactly that. Wayne has been an entrepreneur most of his life and was busy scaling his electrical business when he realized he was overwhelmingly unfulfilled and stressed. While on a surf trip to Fiji with his friends to unwind and get away from the immense stress of his dailys life, he had a minor accident which ended up being the nudge he needed to start on his journey to holistic wellness. Listening to Wayne’s story of surrender will definitely be the first step you need to take on the path that will offer you the ability to create greater alignment between your life, your work and your self-actualization.Tune in for more!
About Wayne: Wayne Kelly is a professional electrician and entrepreneur with two businesses and a combined team of 28 employees. He’s always been entrepreneurial and started off with an electrical business that he co-owned with someone else until they had to part ways later on due to irreconcilable differences. Wayne decided to start his own electrical business and successfully grew it to a point where a huge opportunity to scale it presented itself.
But after so many years of investing his whole self into growing the business, he started to question whether the huge opportunity was really something he wanted to pursue. In partnership with a friend, he still went through with it and the business eventually evolved into a building company.
Fast forward seven years and he was super stressed and constantly having to deal with a lot of pressure. So he decided to take a surf trip to Fiji with his friends, and it was while there that he started the holistic wellness journey that has over time completely changed his personal and business life for the better.

Training The Body For The Zero-Stress Point | William Kane-Potaka
#222 Sound healing is an amazing way to utilize sound and vibration to relieve stress, anxiety, and so much more. Given that everything has a vibrational frequency, including ourselves, it makes sense that sound frequencies impact how we feel. That's why particular songs and types of music often bring about specific types of emotions from us. Sound healing, which is an ancient healing technique that uses tonal frequencies to bring the body into a state of vibrational balance and harmony, plays upon this as well.
In this episode, my guest, William Kane-Potaka, will give you a crash course in sound healing. Will is a sound therapist, musician, recording artist and composer. His work addresses harmony between the body/mind/spirit and is clinically proven to foster deep personal wellness and expansion of consciousness.
We will have an epic conversation about the miracle of our human bodies, the effects of stress on our lives, the connection between brainwave entrainment and your autonomic nervous system, and how we can cure the root of our diseases and problems by utilizing sound. If you’re looking for an alternative healing method, then this episode is the one to guide you. Stay tuned for more!
About William: William Kane-Potaka is a sound therapist, musician, recording artist and composer. He found himself on a journey, delving deep into the realm of physiology and the emotional anatomy of humans. As a sound therapist, he specializes in brain entrainment and synchronisation, nervous system balancing and physio-acoustic/vibro-acoustic therapy.
He was born in New Zealand to a Maori family but soon moved around the world growing up in the Philippines, Malaysia, Italy, and USA. Now, in Australia, he lives with a unique perspective and understanding of many different types of people, allowing him to connect with all walks of life on deeper levels.
His aim and passion is to help people achieve zero-stress on all levels (Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual). Stress begins a path towards dis-ease and Will believes we each have our own journey out of that loop to eventually live our lives in more alignment with our hearts. He endeavors to assist people in experiencing life with more clarity and capability.

Secrets Of Aboriginal Healing | Robbie Holz
#221 In 1983, award-winning physicist Gary Holz was diagnosed with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. By 1988, he was a quadriplegic. Then, in 1994, his doctors told him he had two years to live. Desperate and depressed, he followed a synchronistic suggestion and went to Australia to live with a remote Aboriginal tribe. Arriving in a wheelchair, alone, with almost no feeling left from the neck down, Holz embarked on a remarkable healing transformation of body, mind, and spirit and discovered his own gift for healing others.
In this episode, I welcome Robbie Holz, an internationally respected healer, medium, frequent media guest and an award winning co-author who’s books have been read in 43 countries. Robbie was married to Gary Holz until his passing in 2007. She will describe how her late husband sought his own healing from Multiple Sclerosis among remote Aboriginal people in Australia.
She will also tell us how she got her own healing from Hepatitis C, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia by learning to shift the emotions of guilt, shame and self-hatred, and instead to connect to the earth and the spiritual world to transcend ego and find healing. It’s going to be an incredible journey of discovery towards self-healing, so don’t miss out.
About Robbie: Robbie Holz is an internationally respected healer and medium, frequent media guest and an author of the award-winning books read in 43 countries: "Secrets of Aboriginal Healing" and "Aboriginal Secrets of Awakening." Robbie's life was drastically altered in 1985. After a difficult 36-hour delivery, while giving birth to her child, Robbie was given a blood transfusion to "perk her up faster". Unfortunately the transfusion was tainted with Hepatitis C, a disease often referred to as the silent killer.
Like a Trojan horse, the virus hid in her body--until it confidently and openly declared war seven years later. Robbie was in for the fight, and spiritual awakening, of her life. Due to her reaction to the experimental Hepatitis treatment, Robbie developed fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, temporary brain damage, and became bedridden for 7 months. Since Western medicine was no longer able to help her, Robbie set out to find alternative ways to survive and recover.
She ultimately healed herself of Hepatitis C, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome and treatment-induced temporary brain damage, described in her award-winning memoir Aboriginal Secrets of Awakening. Her latest book is "Angels in Waiting: How to Reach Out to Your Guardian Angels and Spirit Guides." The companion guidebook is "Vibrant Living: Braving the Pandemic with Help from Your Guardian Angel." Her website is www.holzwellness.com
While on her quest for wellness, Robbie met Dr. Gary Holz, an award-winning physicist, Psycho-Neuro-Immunologist and alternative healer. Gary taught her the Aboriginal healing techniques he learned from his encounter with remote Outback Australian Aboriginal tribespeople, chronicled in the award-winning memoir Secrets of Aboriginal Healing. The two eventually married. Like her husband, Robbie has had first-hand experiences with Outback Aboriginal Australians. She participated in Aboriginal healing ceremonies in the Outback.
She joined Gary in teaching the over 60,000-year-old Aboriginal healing system, revealed at the tribe's request.
Started in 1995, their healing practice centered on Aboriginal healing principles, quantum physics and Psycho-Neuro-Immunology -- using the mind to heal the body. Working as a husband and wife team until his passing in 2007, Robbie helped many people successfully restore their health from such challenges as juvenile arthritis, cancer and sports injuries.
