    Effect On Emotions










    I love to feel. I was a man who never felt and did not cry.
    I think I was 41 or 42 when I first cried.
    So mindfulness allows you to feel and to stay with it. Go hang out with it. Hang out with yourself.










    Thoughts On Breathing
    I actually do breathwork every morning. I do five rounds, and I use Wim Hof's method. I don't use any fancy kind of method. Simply breathing in and breathing out, under the guidance of Wim Hof.
    Get the free WimHof App on Apple. It's amazing. It just takes five rounds, and that usually takes me half an hour or so. I love it. It's part of my everyday practice.
     
    Bullying Story





















    I can't personally say that there was much bullying going on. I had sexual abuse and you know that is kind of like a form of being taken over by someone else.
    So, Andean shamanism is very different from  Amazonian shamanism. How should I say that without offending anyone? It's just me making an example with Christianity and Buddhism.
    God will absolve you of your of your mistakes if you repent. If you have done bad, your karma is there you will have to pay it off. There's nobody coming to save you.
    If there is a bad energy or you feel like maybe you have been cursed or you have an illness or whatever that you believe came from outside, you go to an Amazonian shaman and he will make a ritual where he will try to take this thing off of you.
    This will take power away from you, and when you grow up, you will believe you don’t have enough power to turn something around. In the Andean tradition, it is very different. (Listen to the podcast to learn more about the pathways of the shaman.)

    Effect On Emotions










    I would say it has a lot to do with perspective and goals. In other words, how do you view what you do with your life, and how do you motivate yourself to do what you do?
    I know at this point in my life, I get up virtually every morning and say, man, I got work to do, I've got I've got a country to save. And I'm going to do it my way and in a way that really works. I gain much of my inspiration from the past.










    Thoughts On Breathing

    Yeah, I have some thoughts on breathing. In fact, I go to the local YMCA every morning at 5:30 and do my exercises And I walk 4 miles a day.
    But these these particular exercises are so vital. I find myself much more energized when I do that, and so it's just a habit that you need to stay with.

    Bullying Story





















    There was a guy from Wisconsin. He was a doctor. And during the Battle of Gettysburg he was taking care of the Union wounded. He realized that Confederate snipers were shooting and killing his patients. Well, he got so upset that he ran outside this church building, raised his fist and said, I want you to shoot at the healthy ones.
    And they took him seriously, and not another patient was hit or shot again.

    Effect On Emotions










    Mindfulness has transformed how I deal with my emotions in every way. Before, I was just reacting. It was just total reaction. It was self-destructive, and it was violent. I didn't understand why I was doing anything I was doing.
    I think a lot of people wander through life that way. They're behaving. They have no idea why they're behaving the way they're behaving. Why am I doing, what I'm doing?










    Thoughts On Breathing
    Yes, you know eastern religion really focuses a lot on breath. I think there's a reason for that because breath is life, right? I mean, you know, it symbolically represents life and it physically represents life.
    So when we focus on our breath, and I'm not a meditation expert, it gives my mind a chance to just clearly focus on an activity, and then I can sink into my consciousness.
     
    Bullying Story





















     Growing up, I was just a really tortured kid. I was a misfit, and there was a lot of bullying. I was never taught the tools of mindfulness or how to understand my emotions or what I was feeling.
    As a matter of fact, you know I grew up in the South United States, and a lot of it was just the opposite. It was about denying your feelings. It was about hiding suppression, and now I know how damaging that is. But had I had those tools going up, it would have made a huge difference.

    Effect On Emotions










    Mindfulness has helped me to be much less reactive. I experience stress from two sources and both of those are my children. It's tough to break that mental bond with your children. I really don't experience stress beyond that.










    Thoughts On Breathing
    Breathing is helpful as a transition tool into a mindfulness state or controlling your breathing tool. But understand what you're doing by breathing is you're bringing that awareness that is flopping around outside of you back inside. So it's one of many methods that you can use in order to invert that awareness back inside of you.
    Learning to keep that awareness inside of you, when you're in heavy traffic or something of that nature, you can let more of the awareness outside to deal with the circumstances that you're in.
    But when you're out of that, you want to remember to bring that awareness back inside and so the more you can keep your awareness inside the more consistently you will experience mindfulness.


     


    Bullying Story





















    Mindfulness would always make a difference in everybody's life regardless of what the circumstances are. The nature of service to self, In order to be successful in their path, they have to learn to dominate and subjugate others.
    Their objective is to extract from us our life force energy. It's called intelligent energy and we all have is the same amount of intelligent energy available to us.  But as they polarize more service to self then they surrender the access, their connection, to the source of that intelligent Infinity.
    So they have to substitute that. And the only place that they can substitute that is from other people that are in the range of consciousness that we are in. And so they employ domination and subjugation in order to control people.
    And we're seeing in societies around the world, this emerging influence of the service to self attempting to dominate and subjugate others in order to maintain the energy flow that they have already become accustomed to because of our acquiescence over a long period of time.

    Effect On Emotions










    I have that observer within me that watches things rising and falling out falling now for a while. For many years in my life, I thought that mindfulness was so that we didn't have to feel our emotions anymore. We didn't have to be in that, I realized, is an ignorance within us. We're supposed to feel fully. But if I feel sorrow fully, but I don't say I am a sad person. It's two different things. Do I identify with the emotions? Or do I allow myself to feel it fully?










    Thoughts On Breathing
    Breathing is the great gift. The deep breath, the holding of the breath, the holding the bottom of the breath; all of those are wonderful techniques for us to turn on our parasympathetic nervous system to quiet the mind to let the body know it's safe.
    So the thoughts of fear that are constantly rising from our physicality, quiet down, and we can access that awareness underneath all the thoughts.


     


    Bullying Story





















    I was bullied in junior high school, I grew very quickly. I was five feet eight inches tall in junior high school. And I was the tallest student and was taller than some of my teachers. I was gawky and had goofy hair. So I came from an elementary school where I was the president of the Student Council was kind of this celebrated person.
    And then I got into junior high school and got bullied by other girls. It was very painful and a big shock to me that people were cruel that way. And I retreated into myself and so, you know, that stays with you. It's fear, right? Fear of judgment. I think around that time that internal negative voice became a megaphone within me. And it's been something I've fought and tried to understand through my whole life.
    Now, do I see a benefit of that experience? Quite a bit. It drove me to understanding myself in psychology and spiritual practice.
    When you can feel another's pain, you can't bully them. And, and when you're bullied, you can see I can look at those girls, and I can see what they were afraid of. I can see where it was coming from. it. It opens empathy. It's only compassion that problems would solve.

    Love Sparks

    Love Sparks

    Today’s episode is called Love Sparks. Can you think of those moments in time involving special relationships that were incredibly special? Moments you shared with that certain someone? Today, I'm talking about the topic of love and that bond between you and a special partner. So, as I think about love, I think about the many different people I've interviewed on the show who are Relationship Coaches or relationship experts. I jotted down a few of their names and I'm looking at ten people who were terrific guests on this topic. You can search using the search bar on my website and type in the word ‘relationship'.

    Those Eyes
    Have you ever just stopped, paused, and with as much love, thoughtfulness, and compassion as you can have in your heart, just looked into your partner's eyes?
    And I think it's really important to do that,
    We live life day after day, and do you stop to think of that passion and your compassion? Do you let it flow from your heart and from your being into theirs?
    That's something you can gain by practicing mindfulness.
    What Does Your Partner Love?
    Sometimes I think we forget to think about what does he or she enjoy the most in life?
    What does your partner grab onto that makes them just full and satisfied? What gives them complete joy and bliss?
    Sometimes, we confuse it because we understand what gives us joy and bliss. And we may assume that the other person is that same way and enjoys those same things. I know I've been guilty of that.
    Be Vulnerable
    Although it is not always easy, open up and be vulnerable with that special person.
    The more you can open up, be vulnerable, and be willing to share, the closer you can become.
    And, of course, we all know that we have to be careful and smart. Our ego is trying to protect us. We have to allow our brain to help us know when to hold back and when it's okay to let go and be vulnerable.
    Sometimes, we must be willing to take those chances our brain tells us not to take.
    So step out and try to let go a little bit.
    The Sparkles
    This takes me back to my wife when we were going out. We were dating and we were walking along the street. it was our second or third date, and the stars were twinkling.
    It was this perfect evening. And the ambiance was phenomenal. But I remember the stars, and it felt like they were twinkling and sparkling. I felt like they were speaking to me.
    How could life be any better than this?
    When we were together that night with the sparkly stars there were fireworks. It was so special. And now it's almost Valentine's Day.
