    010: Forgiveness: A Prescription for Health and Happiness with Dr. Fred Luskin

    010: Forgiveness: A Prescription for Health and Happiness with Dr. Fred Luskin

    Today, on Higher Energy, we are joined by special guest Dr. Fred Luskin, a lecturer at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Senior Consultant in Health Promotion/Wellness at the Stanford University Health Center, and one of the world’s leading researchers and teachers on the subject of forgiveness.
     
    He is the author of the best-selling books, Forgive for Good: A Proven Prescription for Health and Happiness, and Forgive for Love: The Missing Ingredient for a Healthy and Happy Relationship. His book Forgive for Good is the best-selling self-help book published on the topic of forgiveness.
     
    Dr. Luskin founded and currently serves as Director of the Stanford University Forgiveness Projects, a series of projects that have validated his forgiveness methods. At Stanford, he teaches classes on Positive Psychology, The Art and Science of Meditation, Forgiveness, Wellness, Flourishing, and The Psychology of Storytelling to undergraduate and graduate students.
     
    He also conducts numerous workshops and staff development trainings in relationship enhancement, stress management, and positive psychology through the Stanford Be Well program, and teaches stress management, emotional intelligence, and happiness skills to corporate clients throughout the United States.
     
    Dr. Luskin’s research has shown that the Forgive for Good forgiveness methodology leads participants suffering from a wide range of concerns to improved physical and mental health. His work focuses on the research-proven triad of a healthy and happy life: Enhancing interpersonal relationships, creating a positive purpose in life, and guided practice in appreciation and other positive emotions.
     
    Dr. Luskin joins us today to explore forgiveness, its profound impact on our health and well-being, and how we can learn to forgive others in order to make peace inside ourselves and live with less stress in our lives. He shares the biggest obstacles that prevent people from being able to forgive and explains that forgiveness is about taking the action to no longer let someone or something have power over our lives, even if we do not desire reconciliation.
     
    Dr. Luskin provides insight on the link between forgiveness and our emotional and physical health, and how an inability to overcome a victim mentality and self-regulate our disruptive emotions can manifest things like chronic stress and chronic pain. He shares how we can learn to develop forgiveness as a skill and regulate and calm our nervous system through the practice of meditation.

    009: The Magic of Music and Forgiveness with Amikaeyla Gaston

    Today, on Higher Energy, we are joined by special guest Amikaeyla Gaston, a Cultural Arts Ambassador for the State Department and a highly sought-after performer and public speaker who travels worldwide doing expansive work with political refugees, war survivors, and jeopardized populations.
     
    Amikaeyla is a force for change, proclaimed as one of the “purest contemporary voices” by National Public Radio (NPR). She is also the Founder and Executive Director for The International Cultural Arts and Healing Sciences Institute (ICAHSI), a contemporary interdisciplinary cultural arts and educational institute working in collaboration and in partnership with government, health, and non-profit environmental and social justice organizations.
     
    Ami unlocked her self-expression and healing in an intensive care burn unit after a near-fatal hate crime. Lying in excruciating pain and anguish after being told her legs would have to be amputated and that she would never walk again, she discovered that she could not only overcome fear, but also become fearless through the healing power of music.
     
    Working in the Behavioral Health arena for over the past 25 years, Ami brings together artists and healers of all forms and from all specialties to promote healing and wellness through the arts & activism. She is often called by the United Nations and embassies worldwide into difficult scenarios to offer intercultural literacy and deep restorative justice work in support of transformative and peaceful solutions.
     
    Ami joins us today to discuss healing, forgiveness, and using the superpower of song to help individuals overcome and turn their fear and pain into power and fuel for self-exploration. She shares how we can create a healing environment to learn and grow in with those around us, have heartfelt conversations regarding health, healing, culture, and race, and cultivate a more sustainable world filled with greater tolerance and compassionate understanding.

    008: Your Health and 5G - Facts and Fiction with Dr. Beverly Rubik

    008: Your Health and 5G - Facts and Fiction with Dr. Beverly Rubik

    Today, on Higher Energy, we are joined by special guest Dr. Beverly Rubik, a leading scientist and scholar internationally renowned for her pioneering work in frontier science that embraces the consciousness and the energy fields of living systems, and medicine that goes beyond the mainstream.
     
    Dr. Rubik is an esteemed biophysicist, investigating the role of consciousness in the physical world and complementary and alternative medicine, particularly the role of the human biofield, as well as the health issues of humans exposed to wireless communication radiation.
     
    She is also the founder of the Institute for Frontier Science, a nonprofit research laboratory established to explore novel scientific and health-related discoveries and concepts that are considered unconventional, yet hold promise for future knowledge and applications.
     
    Dr. Rubik joins us today to discuss the dangers of a global rollout of 5G and the detrimental health risks that humans are exposed to through wireless radiation. She explains that there are a host of problems that can come from exposure, and overexposure, to wireless radiation, and why we can expect that 5G will further exacerbate current health and environmental issues.
     
    Dr. Rubik also provides insight into how 5G can disrupt and diminish our immunity to external factors, and why it's possible that individuals living in regions where next-generation 5G networks have already been rolled out may be experiencing a stronger response to COVID-19.
     
    She shares how we can mitigate our exposure to wireless radiation in our daily lives, and why it’s critical that we accurately assess the impact and consequences that deploying 5G can have on humans and the environment before covering every square inch of the earth with wireless radiation.

    007: Alleviating Fear and Boosting the Immune System in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic with Dr. Bruce Lipton

    007: Alleviating Fear and Boosting the Immune System in the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic with Dr. Bruce Lipton

    Today, on Higher Energy, we are joined by special guest Dr. Bruce Lipton, who is a renowned cell biologist, best-selling author, and internationally recognized leader in bridging science and spirit.
     
     
    Dr. Lipton is a sought after keynote speaker and workshop presenter who lectures about leading-edge science and how it corresponds with mind-body medicine and spiritual practices. His research and insights have been pivotal in the epigenetic revolution that’s laying the foundation for a consciousness-based understanding of biology.
     
     
    Dr. Lipton joins us today to discuss how stress, fear, and negative thoughts inhibit the body’s immune system response and, in turn, can make individuals much more susceptible to different illnesses.
     
     
    He explains that the profound level of fear surrounding COVID-19, that’s currently being amplified by the media, not only heightens stress hormone levels but disempowers people by weakening their immune systems and further exacerbating this pandemic.
     
     
    While staying informed is important, Dr. Lipton recommends limiting exposure to the negative media and panic-inducing news reports that primarily feed into fear and spread misinformation.
     
     
    He shares practices for staying healthy, shifting our focus to positivity, and maintaining a calm state of mind in order to alleviate the stressors we’re all facing in these daunting and uncertain times while doing our part to help flatten the curve.

    006: Clearing Unresolved Trauma, Stress, and Anxiety with the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) with Tapas Fleming

    Today, on Higher Energy, we are joined by special guest Tapas Fleming, who is a California Licensed Acupuncturist and the founder and creator of a simple technique called TAT® that can gently and easily reduce stress, end limiting beliefs, and greatly enhance presence.
     
    As one of the most celebrated leaders in energy psychology, Tapas has taught TAT® to hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. She loves to teach TAT®, because not only is it so empowering and liberating, but it also supports people in creating a vibrant, healthy life full of who they are and what they love.
     
    Tapas joins us today to discuss the Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT®) and shares how to do the TAT® pose while leading us through how the technique works to clear emotional connections to trauma, negative experiences, and unpleasant thoughts that may cause stress and anxiety in our lives, including current worries regarding the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
     
    She explains how TAT® can be used to heal the emotional charge and physical reactions to trauma, abuse, stress, and adverse childhood experiences so that an individual is no longer triggered by those memories and can live from a more spiritually-connected, centered, and peaceful place.
     
    Through TAT®, Tapas shares that unresolved emotions and limiting beliefs that have been picked up from family members, society, and events that we’ve lived through can be dissolved in a gentle but powerful way so that individuals can live from a more natural expression of who they are.

    005: The Energies of the Seasons and Mindfulness Practices for Living in Peaceful Harmony with Dr. Joan Borysenko

    Today, on Higher Energy, we are joined by special guest Dr. Joan Borysenko, who is a distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine, a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection, and one of the most popular and sought after speakers in the field of health, healing, and spirituality.
     
    She is a longtime scientist, psychologist, and spiritual seeker whose work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning and the spiritual dimensions of life as an integral part of health and healing.
     
    Dr. Joan joins us today to discuss how ancient wisdom and modern science come together in the service of healing, by not only curing our physical ills but bringing us into a state that positive psychology calls our “best self” or true nature.
     
    She provides insight on the special benefits of different forms of meditative practice, and how the epigenetic effects of mindfulness meditation may reduce harmful inflammation in the body, decrease anxiety, improve energy levels, and increase our overall well-being.
     
    Dr. Joan explains how working with the energies of the seasons through simple healing practices, quiet contemplation, and meditations can help create a deeper sense of self, spirit, and connection by implementing small daily doses of optimism day-by-day and season-by-season.
     
    She shares how our inner nature is deeply connected to the natural environment that surrounds us, how seasonal rhythms of nature correspond with our physical, emotional, and spiritual rhythms, and how we can use mind-body tools to maintain balance and live in harmony with each season of our lives.
