How to Use Social Media to Promote Social Good
Social media has become a major part of our lives. It’s changed the way we communicate, access and exchange information, form relationships, and make decisions.
It provides a platform where anyone can publicly present their thoughts to a global audience and start a conversation. But the freedom to post whatever we want comes with great responsibility. We need to understand the impact our online presence has on others.
In this episode, you’ll get a better understanding of the impression your content leaves on others and how it impacts them. You’ll also learn how to creatively use social media to promote causes and interests that are important to you.
How to Use Your Senses to Boost Creativity
Creativity offers a portal to express our originality, and to engage with artforms that move us deeply. As marvelous as the creative faculties of our minds are, there are limitations.
To reach higher levels of creativity we must get outside our heads and engage all our senses: sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Multi-sensory experiences not only give pleasure, but can lead to revelations.
In this episode, I provide ideas and examples of techniques used by some of the most creative people in history to access their instinctive intelligence. By engaging your entire being through your senses, you’ll have boosts of inspiration and live an enriching reality.
[Interview] How Energy Medicine Can Help Us Heal and Thrive (Dr. Jill Blakeway)
Spirituality, philosophy and science were once fields that were intertwined, but over time they diverged. Thankfully, we are returning to a time when Western medicine is embracing the ancient healing arts. Medical doctors now regularly prescribe alternative therapies and energy medicines to their patients. But what is energy medicine and how does it work?
Renowned energy medicine practitioner, scholar, and founder of the Yinova Center, Dr. Jill Blakeway has herself asked these questions, too. Jill is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and clinical herbalist. The New York Times named her as one of Manhattan’s top acupuncturists. As a practitioner, she is known for her intuitive approach to Chinese medicine and her skills as an energy healer. She’s documented her findings in her well-known book “Energy Medicine: The Science and Mystery of Healing.”
Join me for this exciting episode, where Jill takes us on a journey to better understand, apply, and explain this powerful healing force that lies within us. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about alternative therapies like acupuncture, herbalism and Qigong, you definitely don’t want to miss this!

4 Old-Fashioned Courtship Rituals We Should Bring Back
With the rise of online dating websites and apps, and a more open-minded culture, it’s become harder to form deeper and meaningful connections. The culture enables shallow communication and a “marketplace mentality” that make people feel more like commodities than people.
We can bring morality back to dating by looking to the times when people showed a reverence for the process and courtship was seen as a privilege, not a game.
Not all old-fashioned formal courtship rituals are a good fit for our times, and may seem conservative or dramatic. But if we focus on the basic values they represent and adapt them to our preference, we can add tenderness and authenticity to the process.
In this episode, I share four old-fashioned courtship rituals we all could consider bringing back.
What to Do When Your Hard Work Does Not Pay Off
Most of us grew up hearing that hard work is the key to success. While it’s hard to be a success without working hard, it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll accomplish your goals.
Believing that success comes from diligence and effort alone is misleading, and it sets us up for disappointment. There are many other external factors that impact our desired outcomes.
But instead of letting this reality disempower us, we can use it to our advantage. If you find yourself demotivated and drained out because your hard work is not paying off, you’ll find solace and strength in the five tips I’ve outlined in this episode.
[Interview] Understanding the Mind-Body Connection and How to Tap into it (feat. Robert Ferguson)
Many people believe that the mind and body are two separate entities. When the reality is that they are intimately intertwined. But a lot of people who struggle with stress, weight problems, and health problems are not aware of this.
To teach us more about it, I interviewed an expert in this field, Robert Ferguson. Robert is a nationally recognized certified nutritionist; fitness expert; speaker and author. He’s authored three books on nutrition and fitness, and for more than 20 years Robert has helped thousands lose weight and improve overall their health with the Diet Free Life methodology. He’s worked with Fortune 500 companies as a speaker and consultant, as well as a growing list of celebrities and professional athletes.
In my conversation with Robert, he goes more in depth into how we can eat healthier and develop the right mindset to live happier and more balanced lives. He also addresses issues such as body-image and stress management.
