    Effect on Emotions
    Feel your feelings, but I am much quicker to regulate. So if I do get emotional, I do cry, but because of mindfulness, I'm actually able to identify why I'm feeling that way and how I want to feel and take the next step that way. And so it may take you days to counteract that in the beginning, but now I can do it within an hour or less. Self-Care
    Thoughts on Breathing
    The book BREATH will teach you a lot about how we have not been taking care of ourselves and using this amazing tool we have, which is our breath. You can experience mindful breathing with two quick inhales  through the nose and exhale out the mouth. That is like an instant drop in your nervous system. Self-Care
    The other thing is a five and a half second inhale through the nose, and five and a half second exhale. The perfect breath is about 10 to 11 seconds and in Pilates, the first exercise you do on the mat is the 100. And you breathe in for five and out for five.

    Bullying Story
    This last holiday season, I had some online bullying happening to me, and it was awful. It was horrible. It made me afraid of my own phone, made me afraid to show up for my own communities. Self-Care
    Having mindfulness, I had to use all the tools, and some of the tools would work, but having that allowed me to feel the feeling like if you're being bullied, it's okay to feel that like you're being like I'm being attacked right now.
     I was able to use mindfulness to go back into the reason why I do what I do, like, who am I actually doing this for? Am I doing this for this bully? Am I doing it for the people that fall in love with this bully? Or am I doing this for these people over here who don't even know that this bullying is happening?

    My friend Olivia (Interior Designer)
    Effect on Emotions
    Focusing on what you need and what will help you be the best version of yourself, whether that is, I need to go to the gym more and get physically fit, or I need to take a walk. Maybe I need to do something that I enjoy like watching a movie or building a lego set, or traveling. It's focusing on what you need and that will help you be more successful.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    I can now realize when I am in a state of stress or anxiety. That is when I can do what I need to do to get out of that. I don't necessarily use breathing techniques. I just realize what anxiety or stress looks like for me and then I do things to delete the stress.

    Bullying Story
    I didn't experience much bullying; it was more just teasing or having passive-aggressive friendships that always happened within my friend group. We were always picking on each other.
    There were points when I looked back and felt bad that I had said that. I didn't really think about it that way until I got out of college and had matured and had a better mindset on my past. People knew what buttons they could push with me.

    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness has dramatically helped me to deal with my emotions. I am to give numerology turns on my 11 life path, which is emotional energy. I get extremely emotional about things, and one way I help to control those emotions is the gym. Another way is I learned to think about my thinking. As long as I can think about my thinking and talk to myself, I can keep it under great control.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    If you look at the word spirit, it actually comes from the Greek word spirit a, which means the breath. So that's our energy. God breathed the spirit into us, so not only is breathing important, but you want really good diaphragmatic breathing, with big inhales. It is also important to learn to strengthen your breathing. A lot of times, I'll just lay on the floor, I'll put a kettlebell on my belly button, and breathe. I want to be able to breathe really well because that's the most important thing when it comes to helping top-tier clients. So

    Bullying Story
    I've been bullied all the way up until the end of high school. That's when I got muscle. But in a way, growing up in the inner cities, and tough, rough neighborhoods, I dealt with bullies because a lot of times, it got physical. But I will say this, I've always had the gift of being mindful and present, even when I was a child. And so there's been plenty of times where I've gotten into situations where I realized that I need to let something go, or I need to just walk away, or I need to finesse my way out of there. That saved my life and kept me from getting hurt.  So
    Being mindful and thinking about my thinking, that's the true test of an intelligent person. I think being mindful can help you be more aware and get you out of situations that maybe you shouldn't have been in. And a lot of times, you can just pause and think about your thinking for a second, two seconds, or five seconds. That helps you to not do things that aren't true in your nature. So

    De-Mystifying Enlightenment; Tom Cronin

    Tom Cronin, founder of the Stillness Project, talks about his thoughts on enlightenment, the success of his film and book, “The Portal”, and his plans for future retreats. Tom shares his perspective on enlightenment, emphasizing the importance of exploring the embodiment of spirituality and


    enlightenment. He also discusses the changes in his life since his last appearance on the podcast back in 2021, including his focus on mentoring and coaching conscious leaders and training meditation teachers.








    We also talked about microdosing and plant medicines. Tom explained that in Australia, they are still illegal and have class A drug status, which is interesting considering their potential role in supporting human experience. While Tom does not personally use plant medicines, he acknowledges their powerful and significant role in spiritual exploration.
    Tom shared that he loves teaching meditation, running retreats, speaking, and mentoring people to help them solve problems and progress forward in their lives. He explained that he simplified his business model by focusing on what he loves and is good at, rather than what advisors and mentors told him to do.

    Effect on Emotions
    On the fourth of July, we were in Florida, where my father-in-law lives. We went out on his boat and there were a bunch of boats right on the beach. My wife is Puerto Rican and there was music and six boats. There were all these Puerto Ricans singing and dancing and having a great time. All of a sudden I began to recognize that emotionally, I was really beginning to miss Gabriel. That's when mindfulness kicked in.
    I knew at that moment that I needed to feel what I was feeling. And because of what was going on all around me, I could do it without interrupting or affecting anything else going on.
    Everybody was either in a floaty right on the beach or in the shallow water. So I just bobbed 20 or 30 feet away from everybody, and nobody even noticed because of all the fun happening. And I put my intention on what I was feeling about my son, and I wept.
    I allowed myself to be intentional at that moment and just think about him and what I missed about him. Tears came down my face and that lasted for probably about 30 to 40 minutes.
    I used mindfulness to become present at that moment. So to me, it's a simple, but profound example of how mindfulness can really help you manage your life and even your emotions.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    There's a neuroscientist that I'm listening to, that actually has an episode that just came out this last week, and it's like a two-and-a-half-hour episode on breathing. I'm certainly no expert, although I've been aware for some time that the way we breathe is incredibly critical.
    If you're being mindful of what you're feeling as you're doing things, I can feel my chest even get a little bit tight, and my breathing changed a little bit. I grew up with asthma and had severe asthma up until my mid-20s. So I know what it's like to be in that position where you can't breathe at all and that weight that's on the inside of your chest.
    It's a very simple technique. I just breathe into my nostrils and blow out through my mouth. I just do that a few times. And I'm discovering now that I'm becoming a student of breath, that's actually one of the most effective tools that you can use to eliminate stress or anxiety.

    Bullying Story
    I never got bullied myself but I do have a recollection of times where I bullied others. Back in those days, it wasn't this thing where I honed in on one person and bullied them every single day for months or years. It wasn't that, but also I don't want to belittle it. Even one time could have been enough to impact that person's life forever.
    Years later, I had an opportunity with at least one person through Facebook, I saw them, and I was able to apologize 20-30 years later for my part. Back in those days, I think some things were going on with my parent's marriage.
    If I'd had mindfulness, I think it would have made a huge difference, because I would have been able to just stop that angry emotion. And think through the consequence of punching somebody or just pushing them around or whatever the damage that could cause them.
