    The Art of Knowing When to Stay and When to Walk Away with Emily Freeman

    The Art of Knowing When to Stay and When to Walk Away with Emily Freeman

    We will learn:

    Powerful two-word mantra to help you approach difficult decisions

    The liberating question that could realign your life's path with true happiness.

    Powerful rituals that can guide you to personal closure, even when others leave the story unresolved.


    How often have you mistaken persistence for passion or comfort for contentment?
    The problem is, most of us don’t just fear change, but we have a whole narrative around quitting, as though it’s some form of failure. And these lies can keep us stuck in rooms we’ve long outgrown.
    So, how do we turn down the noise to turn up our own inner nudges? And how can we move more quickly toward our own new doorways of possibility? That’s what we’re talking about today.
    Our guest is Emily Freeman. She is the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of five books, including "How to Walk into a Room" and "The Next Right Thing." She is also a spiritual director, workshop leader, and host of The Next Right Thing podcast, and her most important work is to help create soul space and offer spiritual companionship and discernment for anyone struggling with decision fatigue.

    The Wisdom of Your Body Element Type Through Traditional Chinese Medicine with Dr. Anis Khalaf of AcupunctureFit

    The Wisdom of Your Body Element Type Through Traditional Chinese Medicine with Dr. Anis Khalaf of AcupunctureFit

    We will learn:

    How ‘doing nothing’ can radically transform your health and clarity

    How to find which body element type that dominates your life, and why it matters

    The colors of foods that best suit your element type


    Historically, healers tapped into intricate body connections, like reflexology and chakras, along with herbal medicine, aromatherapy, cupping therapy, and the study of body element types… all without the help of X-rays, MRIs, and computers.
    Today, we’re diving into the world of body element types, and it’s like unlocking a secret map to our own health. Think of it as the ancient version of a personalized health quiz. In traditions like Traditional Chinese Medicine, they talk about elements like Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Each of us fits into one of these categories, and it's not just for fun – it tells us a ton about what our bodies and minds crave for balance.
    Understanding whether you're more Fire than Water, or more Earth than Metal, can change the game. It's like having insider knowledge on how to eat, move, and chill in ways that actually feel right to you.
    So today we’re going to learn the secrets of your element type, plus a whole lot of other holistic health practices.
    Our guest is the TikTok famous Dr. Anis Khalaf, aka @acupuncturefit on socials. He is a medically trained Acupuncture Physician who helps top performers get their health back through an ancient technique called Element Typing. He is the founder and CEO of Acupuncture Fit and VirtualTCM.com. He creates custom Traditional Chinese Medicine health plans for people who suffer from pain, infertility, addiction, gut and hormone imbalance, skin conditions, and severe, terminal, and rare cases.

    Master Emotional Intelligence and Conscious Connection to Deepen Relationships and Elevate Leadership with Talia Fox

    Master Emotional Intelligence and Conscious Connection to Deepen Relationships and Elevate Leadership with Talia Fox

    We will learn:

    How to rethink happiness and relearn presence for deeper connections

    How to craft a legacy through a bucket list

    The four essential habits that are key to emotional intelligence


    It’s not a secret that we humans are starting to suck at connection. The days of deep listening, intimate sharing, and simply being together in the same space are becoming fewer and further between.
    Instead, a quick DM or text has become our go-to, avoiding phone calls and, heaven forbid, unannounced visits. But here's the crucial part: while our methods of communication have shifted dramatically, the human need for physical connection hasn't.
    So how do we get back to that deep connection that we know through mountains of research that humans thrive on?
    Today we’re going to learn how to connect with one another deeply and consciously through the LOVE system.
    Our guest is Talia Fox. She has become a visionary for leadership and legacy building. Her extensive background in psychology and education enables her to help people to be more present, more engaged, and more attuned to the intricacies of our interconnected world. She’s also the author of “The Power of Conscious Connection: 4 Habits to Transform How You Live and Lead.”

    From Want to Desire: Wealth Consciousness and Aligning with Abundance with Ashley Stahl

    From Want to Desire: Wealth Consciousness and Aligning with Abundance with Ashley Stahl

    We will learn:

    How to master your mental muscles to unlock a world of focused achievement

    The implications of quantum physics on wealth

    A 5-minute practice with the power to reduce stress and enhance focus


    Ever wonder why some people seem to manifest abundance with ease while others get caught up in the same old mess of financial struggles or personal dramas? How is it that the same opportunities, the same world, can yield so many different outcomes?
    Today, we're dissecting the impact of our subconscious money patterns and how they carry the weight of our past into our present, for better or for worse.
    And what happens to us and to our dreams when we actually move from a mindset of scarcity to one of abundance.
    You may recognize our guest, one of my dear friends Ashley Stahl. She is the author of YouTurn and host of the podcast of the same name. She is seriously a powerhouse of inspiration. And she writes TED Talks that will get you on that stage and help you go viral.
    We’ve decided to introduce a new flavor to both our shows. Every now and then we’re going to do our own little version of a book club.
    So today we’re going through one of my newest favorite books Happy Pocket Full of Money.

    Why Motivation Doesn’t Work: Mastering the Art of Showing Up for Yourself with Dre Baldwin

    Why Motivation Doesn’t Work: Mastering the Art of Showing Up for Yourself with Dre Baldwin

    We will learn:

    The secret pivotal stage that comes after you've mastered tough tasks

    Why forcing discipline is a flawed strategy, and how to inject structure into your routine

    The life-altering shift that happens when you reduce the space between idea and action


    Can you be real with yourself for a moment? A part of you already knows what you want. And you know what you need to do. The hard part is actually getting yourself to do the thing.

    The problem is that our comfort zones are… comfy. We don’t like to leave them.

    But if you keep making the decisions you’ve always made, you’re going to keep building up walls that keep you where you are.

    You are responsible for the life you create. No one’s going to do it for you. So, knowing that how can you bring yourself to give and produce your best when you least feel like it?

    Today we’re going to figure that out. Our guest is Dre Baldwin. He is CEO and Founder of Work On Your Game Inc. He has given 4 TEDx Talks and has authored 35 books.

    Dre had a 9-year professional basketball career, playing in 8 countries. And his framework is the "roadmap in reverse" for professional mindset, strategy, systems, and execution

    The Deep Impact of Childhood Experiences on Adult Love with Psychotherapist Jessica Baum

    The Deep Impact of Childhood Experiences on Adult Love with Psychotherapist Jessica Baum

    We will learn:
    • The unspoken emotional pacts we make in relationships.
    • How to manage anxious attachments.
    • The powerful steps to sit with your past wounds, understand their impact, and start to heal.

    Have you ever found yourself wondering why certain feelings just won't leave you be? Like you're carrying this invisible backpack filled with emotions that somehow seem too familiar, no matter where you go or who you're with? 

    You might have asked yourself, why do these bits of the past cling so stubbornly, shaping not just moments, but your very life story?

    See, the thing is, we're all a product of our experiences, but sometimes, it's not the ones you can outright remember that have the tightest grip. It's those subtle, often overlooked emotional imprints from our youngest years that silently steer the ship of our behavior, relationships, and, yes, even our self-worth.

    But here's a kicker: these same shadows, as painful as they can be, also have the power to lead to the most profound understanding of ourselves. 

    Today, we're diving into just how much of our adult selves are blueprints scribbled in our young minds. Our guest is Jessica Baum. She is the founder of the Relationship Institute of Palm Beach. She has helped thousands of clients with her unique approach to healing, the Self-full® Method.

MsMaryMak ,

Thank you!

Mind Love has been LIFE CHANGING! This podcast lands somewhere between personal therapy and expansive exploration in the best possible way. I can’t count how many times I’ve turned off self-help podcasts because they sound so insincere, but Melissa’s authenticity, empathy, and curiosity shine through in every episode. Her bravery in tackling controversial topics with kindness and speaking her truth with confidence is inspiring. Thank you for sharing your gifts with others!
