    Nathalie Heynderickx on the Keys to Living a Mindful Life

    Nathalie Heynderickx on the Keys to Living a Mindful Life

    Our guest for this week is Nathalie Heynderickx; the bridge between consciousness and management, a specialist of everything in between, and the founder of Zen High Achiever foundation.
     
    About Nathalie Heynderickx
     
    Nathalie has spent her life honing and developing a commonly overlooked skillset in the corporate world, and as such has become a principal resource in corporate mindful leadership. She shares her experience and deep knowledge of the IT industry to bring balance and calm to high pressure workplaces, whilst maintaining or often increasing productivity. Nathalie is best recognised as the founder of Zen High Achiever foundation with an impressive client portfolio including Peugeot, BP, HP, Mars, ASIC, AGL Energy, Air Services and Bendigo Bank.
    This is Nathalie’s second time joining us and was in fact our first guest ever. Today she joins us on our third anniversary to talk about the key to living a mindful life.

    05:10 A Journey into Health & Peace
    Nathalie dives into the importance of routine, self-practice and her formula for ensuring she sets up each day for continued and sustained achievement. Taking great influence from Indian traditions and the doshas movements through the day, Nathalie defines how she utilises ancient wisdom in establishing how she traverses each day to maintain balance throughout her life.
    “Catch the wave as soon as it comes… be more aligned with the cycles of nature”

    20:40 Brazilian Spirituality or World Spirituality?
    Discussing the notion of separations of spirituality by location, Nathalie explains her view that now, in the world we live in today, spirituality and their associated practices are no longer locked to any specific place but are available to all.
    22:02
    “Modern yoga belongs to humanity”

    25:30 Defining Mindfulness
    The two crucial elements around mindfulness can be broken down to focus and awareness. Nathalie shares how she incorporates all the facets of what she does under the umbrella of ‘mindfulness’. She tells us of a dear friend and teacher who is a monk in a monastery in Sydney, he explained to her that “mindfulness is like the footprint of the elephant” as within the footprint of the elephant we can fit the footprint of all the other animals.
    27:07
    “Nature increases our awareness to what is happening in our environment”

    30:47 Implementing Forgiveness
    We head down the rabbit hole of forgiveness and how to do it with greater ease and how it ultimately benefits all, and how the ability to forgive yourself is crucial. Nathalie talks on how you are in control of your own world and being actively forgiving only improves your reality. People routinely require our forgiveness but potentially without even knowing, and therefore too we are consistently being forgiven by others without even knowing about it.
    42:31
    “Radical acceptance is the cornerstone of self-compassion”

    43:40 Boundaries and Accepting Being Uncomfortable
    Here Nathalie explains how we can look beyond the ego mask that we all wear and how to see beyond negative pain or emotions through courage and acceptance. Drawing on the actions of living and past saints it becomes clear that creating boundaries does not serve us. We discuss how we are triggered by our imperfections and that is why we set up boundaries, we are all continuous works in progress.

    Marianne Williamson on Spiritual Activism (The Power of Love)

    Marianne Williamson on Spiritual Activism (The Power of Love)

    Marianne Williamson is a spiritual thought leader, political activist and New York Times bestselling author who until recently was a US Presidential Candidate.
    About Marianne Williamson
    For over three decades Marianne has been a leader in spiritual and religiously progressive circles. She is the author of 14 books, four of which have been #1 New York Times best sellers. Browse her author page here: https://inspiredevolution.com/recommends/marianne-williamson/
    A quote from the mega best seller A Return to Love, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers. https://inspiredevolution.com/recommends/a-return-to-love/

    Tune In:
    Politics vs Spirituality 
    Marianne shares the significance of the consciousness shift of the 21st century. This will determine the sustainability of life on earth in the next 50 years. It’s the transition from individualism to collectivism. An integration of our interconnectedness to the rest of the world. We can no longer remain disconnected from our politics. If we don’t do politics - politics will do us. This is no longer a matter of choice. It’s a matter of evolution. If we don’t evolve our spirituality and our politics, Marianne shared her conviction, the human species will die.
    “At a certain point, you will not be on the path alone, for you will be joined by mighty companions.” 

    Conscious Capitalism
    We are here to heal and repair the world. Averting yourself away from compassion to avoid politics is what you call the new “capitalist spirituality”. Enlightened societies have both capitalism and socialism elements. Education, healthcare and economic opportunity allow hard working citizens to achieve their dreams.  
        
    “There’s no serious spiritual tradition that gives us a pass on the suffering of other sentient beings.”
    Activate Your Spirit & Serve Life
    Jesus didn’t say “love yourself”. He said to “Love Each Other”. The best version of ourselves is actually the worst version of ourselves... If it doesn't include the version of our self extended into the public domain. We’re here to serve. We’re not indispensable. It’s vitally important to have an internal guidance system. Remember that you take care of the future by fully living in the present.
    “Spiritual conviction is understanding that you only get to keep what you give to others.”
    Power & Love
    There is flow and synergy between love and power. Between divine masculinity and the divine feminine. Both elements are equally important. There is a dynamic power to the masculine and magnetic power to the feminine. As Martin Luther King put it:
    “Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
    Wage Peace
    Wage peace. Wow. Marianne goes deep. Tune in and learn about the four statistical indicators that will show a higher incident of peace within a community. She believes that addressing the suffering of others should be our core political and spiritual mission. That’s just the beginning of how we wage peace. 
    “War is the absence of peace, peace is not the absence of war.”

    Quarantine Immunity 
    Mason shares his powerful perspective on immunity and how to access levels of health even deeper than immunity. Helping people around the world are finding their center. He sheds light on the difference between eastern and western concepts of immunity. Reflecting on the pursuit for that vitality and security within.
    “It’s not a coincidence that godliness is cleanliness.”
    Life Cycles
    Tune into the motions of the planet and its seasons. Mason encourages us to find balance and harmony through understanding nature and its elements. He dives deep on how to establish a health practice that explores immunity intuitively and is balanced in both yin and yang, resting and doing.
    “If it (health) feels ambiguous, go into that ambiguity and feel that feeling
    -- That’s a great meditation!” 
    A day in a life of Mason Taylor
    Mason shares his current daily routine. Peer into a day-in-the-life of Mason. From starting early and drinking warm water first thing in the morning, to going over his herbal supplement ceremony, he shares some COVID relevant insights on how various practices can greatly affect your wellbeing. Ít shouldn't have to be hard - it should flow. Intention is a critical element. And from there is all about consistency. Setting principles in place based on key basic elements and find a consistent flow.
    “Drop into the heart and feel the stillness and infinity within”
    Flow & Move
    Mason invites us to be even more in tune with our bodies and shares how to develop a practice. Shattering labels such as dietary and exercise - “just move” . I can begin by simply looking at and allowing your body to be present with what’s occurring - you’re already initiating the flow with movement - be perceptive.
    “Connect with your body and start doing what’s useful for your body”
    Sleep
    Mason finally wraps up his perspective on sleep and why it’s the ultimate yin practice. He reminds us agin to remove the labels from sleep and what we “think” it’s about. It's so much deeper than what we can “know” and “understand”. He shines a light on sleep and how you can watch your tendencies and your relationship with self.
    “Finding your way with harmony - sleep is intrinsic.”

    Benny Fergusson the Movement Monk on How to Heal your Mind-Body Connection

    Benny Fergusson the Movement Monk on How to Heal your Mind-Body Connection

    Our guest for this week is Benny Fergusson, founder and program director of Movement Monk.
    About Benny Fergusson
    Benny was quite active until his unfortunate spinal injury which led to chronic scoliosis. After living with pain for years without getting any lasting relief from therapy, he went on a mind and body healing which profoundly changed his life. With years of research, practice and meditation art, Benny has successfully restored his physical freedom. This has paved the way in establishing a method of functional movement, developed with the intention to restore the body to its natural powerful state called “The Movement Monk Project”. He has been working as a physical therapist and movement teacher for over 16 years and is also a master practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Patterning (NLP).

    Tune In:
    Manifestation of Consciousness in the body
    Benny shares to us his knowledge of how our mind and body can have two different conversations in terms of affecting our nervous system. The whole somatic reality of mind and body reflects each other. Listening to the body could help us connect to who we really are, for us to have a harmonious moment within ourselves. He further elaborates the unfolding process of consciousness. By expanding perception, allowing flowing energy, freedom of breath, movement quality, and movement capacity, we are able to fully reconnect with our body and gain freedom. 
    “The body is a wonderful reflection of what’s going on with the mind…”
    The Building Blocks
    At some point in our life, we’ll have at least one song that would touch our heart; a song perfectly needed at the moment. Benny metaphorically used music to expand on the modular processes of the five building blocks in discerning our highest need. 
    “If there’s anything within us that’s like a handbrake on… When we get into that space where we’re using our bodies, moving our bodies or working with our bodies with that internal hand break off, then it just makes the process a lot more graceful.”

    Symptom versus essence of an intention
    Everyone has their own share of uniqueness and Benny further delves into how we are all subjected to a certain level of conditioning in our society. Know how this cultural set up has brought about emerging patterns of safety and belongingness issues.. When we’re not feeling safe, our body is unfocused and unable to feel what’s going on. This will consequently manifest as symptoms. Benny goes on by describing how to respond rather than react to these body sensations through his process called “Break Through Your Pain”.
    “If you can listen to the whispers then the body doesn't need to scream”
    Wisdom of the body and burning out
    All living things go through the cycle of activity, rest and charged momentum. Benny also went through a lethargic phase from his aggravated spinal injury. This rest cycle has fuelled his desire to search for his midpoint between bringing restfulness into the acts he was doing. Get to discover how situations can often come as opportunities for you to connect towards greater levels of alignment. Consciousness is not bound by time and sometimes rest is needed to have the energy to take on what’s coming.

    Tune in:
    125/400 Rule
    The reason why it's critical to pay attention and listen completely - including during the pauses, the silences and thoughtful moments in a discussion - is because of the simple maths between speaking and hearing. Although we can think at 400 words per minute, you can only speak at between 125-175 words per minute. So there’s a gap of 225-275 words per minute of what's not being communicated by words specifically.
    “We think at 400 words per minute, we speak at 125-175 words per minute.”

    The 4 Villians Sabotaging Your Listening 8:48
    There are 4 villains that can show up depending on the situation we’re listening in. And situation to situation - we listen differently in different contexts and scenarios. The Dramatic Listener loves listening to the emotions of your story but their orientation is themselves. The Interrupting Listener comes with good intention but is relatively impatient in finding a solution. To be so self absorbed by your thoughts or devices describes a Lost Listener. Lastly, the one who excitedly anticipates the future, trying to solve the problem before completely hearing it all is the Shrewd listener. You can take a 7 minute quiz to identify your listening villains at listeningquiz.com.
    “Listening is situational, relational, and contextual.”

    Listening in Full-HD-Colour 24:26
    Although only a small percentage of us don't see in color, Oscar says we all effectively listen in black and white. To unlock your ability to listen in color - discover your biggest barrier to listening. Oscar reminds us that blind people develop what almost seems to be extra-sensory listening abilities - these abilities are available to all human, but are we enganging our deep listening or are we simply distracted? Not until we listen to ourselves and empty ourselves from our distractions can we receive whatever anybody else is trying to say.
    “The difference between a distracted listener and a deep listener is not the fact that they listen better, it's the fact that one noticed they’re distracted quicker.” 

    Oscar’s Personal Listening Ritual 27:06
    Oscar makes it to the point to switch off his phone, take three deep breaths and be hydrated before meeting someone. We gain a tremendous amount of benefits just by increasing water intake and connecting with our breath. These are very basic tips that can actually bring us to a stage where it's possible to be ready to listen.
    “A hydrated brain and oxygenated brain is a listening brain.”
    5 Levels of Listening 36:45
    Most often we are stuck in our own heads - listening to ourselves in our own echo chamber at level 1. When we’re in dialogue we engage in the second level of listening - listening to what’s being said, seen or the state of the person talking (You can see that level two depends on our efficacy at level one). Level three is taking it further than most ever do - which is to listen to the context or noticing the observable patterns in the conversation. In this episode Oscar shares key tips to increasing your level 3 perception. Level 4 is the gold of understanding others at a deeper level, closing the gap in kn

    Charles Eisenstein on The Conspiracy Myth

    Charles Eisenstein on The Conspiracy Myth

    Our guest for this week is Charles Eisenstein, American public speaker and author.

    About Charles Eisenstein
    Charles Eisenstein is an amazing public speaker and author of an essay called “The Conspiracy Myth”.

He is also known for the books, The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible, Sacred Economics, and The Ascent of Humanity.

    What is a conspiracy myth? 26:02
    The attention received by “The Conspiracy Myth” essay became the beacon towards the realization of being a right-wing conspiracy theorist. But beyond that, conspiracy myth is actually a part of the phenomenon of downgrading and dehumanizing other people. A lot of the data points that the conspiracy theorists draw from are totally valid. Conspiracy myth is a perception of a vast conspiracy that pulls all of the strings and controls all of the puppets on the theory of how the world works. There’s a larger reality that we're not fully aware of and that is hidden from us. 
    “Myths whether or not they are literally true, they carry truth. They’re different from a fantasy or delusion. But a myth is a vehicle for truth.”
    Science, Religion and Biases 33:41
    Rituals are the foundational myths of our civilization. There is something outside ourselves that we can prove and gain certainty and control. Religion is a vehicle of a sacred principle embodied by science. The fundamental core of Science is “I do not know so I shall ask”. That’s the sacred essence of science’s humility enacted by scientists at their best and at their worst. When science and religion is institutionalized, they lose touch with their sacred essence and serve the opposite. A lot of the abuses and dysfunction of science today is an expression of arrogance. 
    “Science is “I do not know so I shall ask.”

    Leading into the conspiracy and pulling these strings 37:43
    Order can emerge spontaneously out of chaos. Beauty and intelligence could be a property of the universe because the world itself is alive and conscious. We’re programmed that we have all the answers to know what’s real and what isn’t. When that is violated, we go to a phase of bewilderment. This is to open up and appreciate multiple paradoxical viewpoints. The willingness to entertain paradox is a profound path of self development. 
    “The ability to hold paradoxes is necessary to uncover the deeper reality that resolves the paradox.”
    Conspiratorial Rabbit-Holes 44:55, 56:05, 01:05:50
    Diving down to those conspiratorial rabbit holes is very much like an addiction and there’s some kind of elitism that is leading into events. Our society is built on the manipulation of symbols. The more you investigate any conspiracy theory, the more truer it becomes. That’s the danger when you philosophize everything. However, it’s also not an excuse to not do anything and be an aloof to everything. There’s always something to do that makes sense regardless of the actual accuracy of the theory. Conspiracy theories invite us to look beyond the spectacle.
    “All of these beliefs correspond to a state of being.”
    Making stories, intuition and conscious decisions 01:12:56
    Our next stage as a species is not to be finally free of stories and belief systems. What is mostly uniquely human about human beings, is that we create stories. These stories create roles for us to occupy. In the near time, stories order things and our creativity. If you haven’t experienced a miracle in your life, that doesn’t mean you are less evolved. We need people to develop the inner strength and the muscle of faith that doe
