    Eric Zimmer | Essential Wisdom: How To Move From Knowledge & Experience Towards Compassion

    If we look at the transtheoretical model of change, in the first stage you are not aware at all that a change is even needed. Then, we move into a state of pre-contemplation as the rumblings are growing louder. Next, we have the contemplation phase where you are actively thinking of making. a change. Finally, you get to a stage where you are actually ready to make a plan and change. All of those steps are part of the change process and anywhere you are on that path you have to honor the change you're in. - Eric Zimmer

    Ryan Sprague | Conscious Cannabis: The Science + Spirit of The World's Most Misunderstood Plant

    Cannabis meets a lot of people where they're at; maybe they're not ready to do an inner child healing workshop but they might be open to the idea of praying before interacting with cannabis and setting an intention. So, we meet them where they're at and allow them to experience what this whole world is with a conscious cannabis practice. Also, we teach them how to heal without it; you don't need these plant medicines to access a higher self or heal but they do show you what's already possible and what is there in your life. Plant medicines give you the direct experience so that you then have the motivation and inspiration to actually start diving into the real work. - Ryan Sprague

    Allison Pelot | Exploring The Multidimensional Self: Top Secrets To Thriving (not just surviving)

    What does thriving really mean? Does it just mean eating well and working out? Having the energy to be busy? Or does it mean having the energy to literally create what you want in your life and experiencing the joy in that? Thriving is more of a practice and a constant check-in to make sure you're not going into those old patterns of behavior. Ask yourself why you're doing what you're doing and start to do things more out of joy rather than obligation. - Allison Pelot

    Sky King | How To Exit The Matrix: The Psychology of Propaganda & Marketing

    "When you fast, you force yourself to become more aware of what you consume; whether it be food or media. So, when people need to detox from propaganda and marketing, I will them to do an advertising fast. Without changing their behavior otherwise, they see how long they can go without seeing, hearing, or viewing an advertisement. People think doing a 24-hour food fast is hard but this is impossible because the only way that you'll escape is if you don't have your phone on and you're in the woods."  - Sky King

    PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.
    Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.
    The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.
    Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.
    PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.
    Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.
    Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.
    Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

    Laura Coe | Understanding Akashic Records: How To Live Your Dharma, Spiritual Bypassing, Twin Flames & Soul Mates

    An Akashic record is believed to be this energetic space that holds your soul's history. If you think of western Christianity and Judaism, they call it the book of life. In Eastern traditions, they call it Akasha Primary Substance but it's this idea that every single thing that you have ever done in the history of your soul's life, not this incarnation, has been recorded and stored somewhere." - Laura Coe
    Wellness + Wisdom Episode 451 Akashic Records Reader, Author of The Nature of Series, and Founder of The Little Soul School, Laura Coe, returns to share the truth behind the Akashic Records, how to unlock your potential in our 3D world, as well as the concepts of soul splitting, twin flames, and soulmates.

Inspired by this episode and the questions brought up in their conversation. What does the thriving really mean to each of us? Are we experiencing more joy versus obligation in our day to day? Thriving really is a practice of creating what you want in your life and getting curious about why we return to our limiting thought patterns - and then adjusting course.
