28: None but ourselves can free our minds
Bob Marley, reminds us in his 'Redemption Song', "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; None but ourselves can free our minds".
This episode is all about reclaiming your power.
The following was shared with me and now I share with you, unfortunately author is unknown to me so I am unable to give credit.
"This is your reminder that if you still have not caved to the powers that be. you've just survived the greatest psyop in human history, a plan that has been in the works for decades.
Do you realize how much time, resources, money & effort they put into this? They studied every possible way to manipulate, brainwash and coerce you. They tried to demoralize you by corrupting society from every possible corner. They tried to vilify you, desensitize you, scare you, guilt you, and shame you. They tried to lure you with money, gifts, and rewards. They tried to confuse you and make you question your reality and even your sanity at times. They tried to get you to abandon your own principles, values, morals, and ethics. They even turned those close to you against you.
Almost everyone fell for it. But not you. So just sit back for a moment and realize how much you've weathered over these past 20 months. Yet you never gave in! You stood your ground against all odds. And not only did you not drop to your knees, you rose like a Phoenix in the night and stepped fully and completely into your power. WELL DONE"
The right words can have an impact on how we perceive everything. A word or two can make a difference in our perceptions of ourselves. I think it’s high time we changed our perception about ourselves by changing our language about ourselves. Listen now and take a ride with me.

27: A way out of fear
A way out of fear
Remember, wherever you are, you can always change, improve, and up-level. It's a choice. A choice to be intentional. whichever domain that you're in if it's in your career, your health, your relationships, finances, etc.
In this episode, I’ll cover:
• Managing your environment
• How to stay calm during times of chaos
• The imperative to simplify your life
• Focus on the things that enliven your
• Languaging- to self-first and then to others
• and the All-important Breath. When experience negative stress your breath gets shallow, physiology creates body chemistry and hormones that tear you down. Breathing with a slow exhale activates the parasympathetic nerve system and takes you out of fight or flight and slows your heartbeat and pulse and reduces anxiety.
Remember who you be and that you always have the capacity to choose!
Start by taking back control of your life.
Focus on personal empowerment. Be congruent with your core beliefs.
Align with what sparks your soul. Focus on those things that create enlivenment- be they intellectual, physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.
Engage in meaningful pursuits, hang out with good people.
People ask what should I do with my life now? Start every day by striving to be the best you can be. You get to choose how you show up. Monitor yourself talk. You know that old adage "you would hate me if I spoke to you the way you speak to yourself in those quiet moments". Get control of your thoughts.
Remember, you can't move forward if you're still tethered to the past. Stop minimizing yourself. You are amazing even if you currently choose not to see it.

25: Designing Your Life
In episode #25 of TAO-Living Podcast, I'll introduce you to the ability to Designing Your Life.
First, we'll address patterns and ways of behaving that prevent us from living the life of our dreams. We must transcend survival mode and enter into thriving mode.
Look at how many people in survival mode even label the days of the week just to 'get thru' 5 calendar days like they are crossing a desert with no water. Miserable Monday, Hump Day Wednesday, TGIF Fri.
Are you aware that this focus on certain days having more dread than others (which is only in the mind of the believer) leads to the fact that more people die of a heart attack Monday am than any other day of the week? The dread of going back into (a job usually ) or their life in general- one that they despise.
Next, I'll invite you to get deeply honest with yourself and answer these questions:
*Do you have fear around your future?
*Do you experience regrets and self-doubt?
*Are you overwhelmed by not having balance in your life or overwhelmed by feeling out of balance in your life?
*Are you frustrated with the way you're currently living your life? *Are you frustrated with not achieving what you know you're capable of achieving?
*And do you know, that deep down inside there is more to you than you're currently expressing?
I'll address the profound yet simple truth that if you don't design your life someone else will!
Then the need to transition to a state of thriving requires us to remember as Emerson said, "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
Marianne Williamson's beautiful quote 'Our deepest fear'...
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the World. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. As we let our own Light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
