    The Power of Visualization To Help Accomplish Your Goals

    The Power of Visualization To Help Accomplish Your Goals

    In today's episode, I talk about the power of  visualization. This is something that I personally do and is used by many successful people from all walks of life. I will be referencing an article by Jack Canfield to provide more of the structure and the “why” around visualization. The power of visualization is so real and I want to share how it can help us accomplish our dreams and goals.

    I will cover the following:

    Why and how visualization works.

    Four things visualization does.

    A visualization exercise to put into practice what you learned right away.

    How to spend the most important 10 minutes of your day.

    It is in our subconscious mind where we start to generate creative ideas to achieve our goals and then we create our reality in the present moment.  Remember to take present moment breaks for gratitude; this will keep you in good frequency and continue to attract what you are visualizing.

    Peace Of Mind Is Not A Luxury!

    Peace Of Mind Is Not A Luxury!

    Hi guys! This is an important episode for me because I truly believe that “peace of mind,” is the greatest asset you could ever have. We have the power and ability to raise our vibrations, control where our energy goes and who receives it and can take responsibility to remind ourselves of the present moment.

    Today, I will be discussing in greater length, the three things that I do daily to help maintain peace of mind:

    Protect your energy and vibrations

    Do not try to control what you cannot control

    Remain grounded in the present moment

    I encourage you to listen and understand how important doing these on a daily basis is for your peace of mind. Let’s find balance and stay positive, together.

    Wishing you the best of health.

    Where Are You With Your 2020 Goals?

    Where Are You With Your 2020 Goals?

    Believe it or not, we are now half way through 2020 and it is a good reminder to check in on the goals we had set at the start of the year.

    Have they shifted, pivoted, have you given up? Or have you stayed on track?

    I agree that 2020, has been the most unique year for probably everyone and perhaps a lot of these events may have thrown you off track or stopped you completely from pursuing your goals.

    But through it all there is a lesson. We have learned how important our health is, how important empathy towards one another is and how at the end, “change,” is a natural constant better to be welcomed than resisted.

    In today’s podcast, I would like to take these lessons and apply them to our goals; revisit your goals and start to make progress. There is still time to achieve your goals.

    How do you want to end 2020? Take a half year Audit, assess and execute. Start moving forward again.

    Healing and Empowerment with Dr. Jessica Peatross, MD

    Healing and Empowerment with Dr. Jessica Peatross, MD

    In today's episode, I talk to Dr. Jessica Peatross about how our childhood, surroundings and nutrition can affect our immune system.

    After going through a severe car accident as a teenager where she sustained a fractured back, Dr. Jessica Peatross pushed herself to understand the science of healing and to provide better treatment of chronic pain than what could be provided with addictive narcotics. Dr. Jess is driven to change others’ lives through empowerment and true education about health through her practice and she shares with us the following:

    The importance of nutrition and overall health

    How our early development affects our immune system as adults

    The mold that already exists in our homes and how it can impact our health

    During this Covid-19 pandemic what are some preventative strategies we can do at home to help our bodies and support our immune system.

    This is a very fascinating talk as Dr. Peatross has been very vocal during this pandemic on how we hold the power and can begin to make changes to not only support our immune systems, but also positively impact our overall health.

    I hope you enjoy this episode!

    Wishing you the best of health.

    Gunny Sodhi.


    About Dr. Jessica Peatross:

    Dr. Jess is a board-certified medical doctor and a certified Gerson Practitioner. She is an expert in the areas of stealth infections, environmental toxicity, regenerative medicine, ozone, and cannabis. Her passion lies in uncovering the mystery behind the chronic illness, whether that be stealth infections, heavy metals, stress/trauma or other environmental toxicities. There are real, root cause answers for WHY the body might be malfunctioning.

    Trained in medicine at the University of Louisville, Dr. Jess experienced what many of her patients experienced: deep anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and adrenal dysfunction. She sought answers to uncover the root cause of disease – something she thought she had learned in medical school.

    After working as an M.D. in a hospital for 6 years, Dr. Jess realized that she needed to investigate alternatives to today’s modern medical industry, which “treats every ill with a pill.” She became trained in Gerson Therapy, functional medicine, nutrigenomics, and ozone in her efforts to help her patients with chronic disease solutions.
