    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness has helped me mitigate my negative sides and reinforce and access as a resource, my more positive sides. By helping me be mindful with my emotions, I can go, Oh, I'm having a reactive part and I'm having an empathic, loving presence part.
    If you're familiar with the story of The Two Wolves; we ask the question, which wolf do I feed? Let's feed the emotional, empathic parts. Not that the other part isn't real and legit. What do I give a voice to?
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Mindfulness and breathing are intimately connected for me. My breath is my go-to, ground point. I always say, when you are mindful under stress, you have to practice when you're not. It's so simple, so easy, so uncomplicated to connect breathing and mindfulness.
    When I find myself getting into an argument, getting angry or upset, the very first thing is, I go to my breath. So simple, just take a pause and inject a space into a ‘too-fast conversation'.

    Bullying Story
    I was bullied pretty badly. I could pray for mindfulness on the part of any of the bullies, that's for sure.
    When I put myself back in the moment, I wasn't feeling very mindful about the things that were going on.
    I felt very victimized and I didn't have a lot of compassion for people. I feel like I was really missing a mentor to help me reframe things.

    Effect on Emotions
    Emotional Intelligence is something that I'm big on. To me it's one of those things in our broken school system that needs to be taught more.
    It's important to be aware of your own emotions and to be able to respond appropriately to the emotions of others.
    I'm always working on anger and temper. Other people are not out to get you or hurt you. Everybody has their own stuff going on.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing is huge. That's something I'm working on doing more of. I'm not a meditator. After I do my mantra in the shower, I take a few deep breaths and let it all soak in.
    If I'm having a moment, or if something's going on, and I start to get overwhelmed or anxious, I'll catch myself and just do some breathing exercises.

    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness and my emotions now are my navigation system. I pay attention to what my emotions tell me about myself and what I'm experiencing and my levels of energy.
    Emotions used to be something that were very scary. They included depression and scary mindsets, and now my emotions are definitely there as my guiding system to get me to where I need to go.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    We overuse our minds so much so just using the power of breath to bring yourself back in your body [is powerful].
    You can feel both your body and your mind working together and not just have this overworking, overthinking mind where you're not even paying attention to the fact that you have a human body.

    Bullying Story
    I have been called everything; a witch, snake oil saleman, crazy, you can't do this. I made a video called, Those Who Love Me, Those Who Help Me, and Those Who Hate Me.
    I wrote all the negative things people have said about me on a white board behind me and I stood up and spoke. Before I started this six years ago, I didn't have any social media, I had never spoken on camera, I didn't even have a facebook account.
    G. I. Gerjieff said, “Ask a man to give up any vice and he will do so easily, but ask him to give up his suffering and then you've got yourself a dilemma.”
    A lot of people do not want to believe that they are at the core of their own suffering. Reality Transurfing really does adopt this idea that there are no victims, that we have to take accountability for who we are in our actions and our thoughts.

    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness really helps me experience my emotions. With one of my clients, I sometimes would say before the sessions, are you excited? He used to say, yes, I'm excited.
    Then we did a mindfulness exercise where we would say, instead of identifying with our negative emotions, we would say that they're present. For example, frustration is present, impatience is present.
    My client now says, yes, there is excitement. It gives that breathing room so you can be an observer of your own life.
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing is everything. It is the key anchor. What I love about it is this notion that as we breathe in, we taking in pranic energy, life force energy that animates the body. Then we're releasing it back to its source.
    This idea that when we look into each other's eyes, we're breathing from that same source of life force energy.

    Bullying Story
    In high school, I was so insecure and I didn't realize how insecure I was until I became secure a long time later. I was also navigating a challenging identity crisis around religion and my sexuality, puberty, and the cosmos, all at once. I went to three high schools in four years and my family moved around a lot.
    I had endured some trauma as a child so I was in therapy as a teen but I never quite felt I could trust my therapist.
    I was also in the priesthood and sort of felt like I was living multiple lives sort of like I had created almost a mild sense of dissociative identity disorder where I was sort of living these different personalities. None of them were really even me. They were me playing out something that I had seen or I thought I was supposed to do so people would like me.
    A memory that completely evaporated into the past and I completely forgot about was resurfaced when an old friend of mine reached out and said, you did something when we were in tenth grade and it really hurt me. What happened was, a friend of mine, a young woman I was going to school and church with, there was a rumor that she made out with this guy.
    I said, I heard that you and so and so were making out at the football game. She said no and I said, are you sure? You don't have to lie to us. She said, no, that didn't happen. After that, I made a couple jokes about it.
    One of the important things that we do in mindfulness is start to experience things from another person's perspective.

    Meaning of Mindfulness To You
    I define mindfulness as living in the moment and thinking in the moment. If I'm focusing on the past I know that is going to pull me away from my purpose and from the focus that I really need to have.
    If I'm worrying about the future and what might be coming up tomorrow, or even in a few minutes, then that's pulling me away from the present moment and from being a mindful person.
    To me, being mindful is living in the moment and also not being judgmental.
    It's so easy for us as humans to be judgmental of other people and of other situations. It is really a natural part of being human. But when I do that, I notice it and I pull myself back from it.
    Your First Thoughts About Purpose
    When I was around 11 years old I started thinking of time passing, the importance of time, and what that meant. What was that concept of time?
    I remember so clearly that I would spend time reflecting on what certain things meant in the world. And that's one of the reasons why I use the TIME acronym.
    Time has everything to do with mindfulness, of course.
    Thoughts About Your Purpose
    Throughout my life I have had a dream where I'm leaving my body and I'm rising up and looking down and seeing myself down there on earth. I'm looking at myself from this incredible position way up in the universe. That is what gave me the perspective that I'm here for a reason.
    That reason is to help other people find their purpose and to use aspects of mindfulness to do that, to help them understand how they can do the work, how they can reach out to others because of that TIME acronym.
    Learn from authors, learn from speakers, learn from friends, surround yourself with like-minded people. And as you're moving on your journey in life, you will understand more of what your purpose really is from other people who are looking for similar answers.
    The TIME Acronym
    The T is about together. And I think for too much of my life, I felt like I had to do it myself. That was a real learning step for me. And so I teach other people that you can do this together with other like-minded people.
    The I is Inner work. You must do the inner work. You need to write, you need to explore those thoughts that are running through your mind. You need to give yourself the time and space to really understand what's important in life.
    A lot of times we don't spend enough time in nature and that will help us get clear on our goal and life's direction and understand what our true purpose is because it's not going to come all at once.
    A lot of it comes to me through writing. So that inner work is incredibly important.
    M is meditation. I feel like everybody meditates in their own way. You might have been taught formally. You might do TM, transcendental meditation. Meditation is a huge part of this picture. And you can use an app like the calm app that will help you learn how to meditate. There's Insight Timer where you can get yourself a meditation teacher right there on the app. You need to start. You need to take action. Maybe you've never meditated, or maybe you have meditated sporadically, but I really feel it's important to meditate on a regular basis. Make it part of your routine, part of your habit, make meditation a part of your life. That is just so integral to what you do and how you think.
    E is Exercise. Move your body. Make sure that you're not stagnant. Make sure to move every day. Your body is crea

    Effect on Emotions
    Mindfulness has effected my emotions in the fact that I can choose to either see what happens in my life as good or bad or just neutral. Mindfulness has taught me that everything is neutral until I give it meaning. 
    Thoughts on Breathing
    Breathing is so critical. If there is any one self-care tool I would teach it would be breathing.
    It would be just taking four deep breaths, holding it for four seconds, out for four.
    That is an important tool when you have a sense of anxiety or you are getting ready to do something that requires a sense of creativity, it's just, connect with your breath.

    Bullying Story
    In the man's world, it's very analytical. When you start talking about, this is what my intuition says, you get this ‘look'. There's immediate resistance. I didn't necessarily get bullied, but I got immediate resistance.
    Their eyes and their body language said, that's not the way we do things here. You get to a point where I no longer want to be in this environment if I can't really bring all of who I am to business.
    Then you start having discussions with women about, don't be afraid to be intuitive and use your sixth sense to get things done and to really have your heart guide you in the discussions that you have with your boss, with your clients, with your team members.
    Let that be a major part of how you do business because that's where we do our best work.

Positive content

I really enjoyed the episode with Blake D. Bauer and appreciate all the profound wisdom he brought to the show! I personally resonated with this particular advice he mentioned: “You have to breathe deeply, to feel deeply, you have to feel deeply, to heal deeply”. Super insightful!

Dr. Nieusma on Covid

I am very disappointed in the discussion with Dr. Nieusma regarding Covid. Yes, and obviously, we all die at some point as a natural part of life. But tell that to a young parent who is responsible for the care of their young children. Tell that to a parent who’s child has developed Covid and does not survive. Tell that to an adult child who cannot be with their parent as they lay dying alone. Tell that to anyone who is not as evolved as your Dr. Nieusma. If there is any way to prevent or decrease the spread of this disease, wearing a mask is a small sacrifice. Dr. Nieusma, you are not being helpful in my opinion and arrogant to believe all people will respond in some enlightened manner.
