    You are welcome to muse with us as we consider the impact of 2020, a year when all expectations were upended. Living through a pandemic, then, as now, was never something we expected of modern times.


    Diane acknowledges the loss, grief, and ongoing challenges we are learning to live with. Yet the wows and whispers never stop coming our way, even if we don't quite pay attention at first. New technology is even there to help us stay connected in ways we may not have thought possible.


    This episode highlights some of the gifts in Season 1.5 (S1point5) which our deeply caring and thoughtful guests so generously bring forward  in heartfelt conversations from their own lives.


    May these conversations uplift and inspire, even helping us to find the energy and trust we need to move forward with what will be.

    36: Feng Shui’s Ancient Wisdom & Modern Tech | guest P.K. Odle | S1point5

    Direct experience is a powerful teacher, and P.K. Odle's life took a “Wow!” of a turn that suddenly lifted her from a numbing desk job in the travel industry, to one of its most prestigious positions in the LA entertainment world. 


    But that was only the beginning, as a year later P.K. was headed toward success in a field she never even knew existed until a friend told her to read a book about Feng Shui. She had, and using its remedies immediately shifted her travel job after a weekend of making the changes in her home that it had suggested.


    When P.K. met American Feng Shui Institute® founder Master Larry Sang, she happily walked away from her corporate career to study there, and seized the opportunity to make positive changes in the world by improving clients’ health, relationships and finances. She is now the Institute’s Executive Director, and a Master Feng Shui Consultant with both a U.S. and  international clientele.


    In today’s wide-ranging conversation, she shares the 5,000 years-old roots of Feng Shui, and some of its storied history, while explaining just what practical and immediate power Feng Shui brings to anyone’s home or work life.


    P.K. even connects its ancient techniques with modern technology, so listeners can understand how it can be both old and new. Enjoy!

    “That I could learn to embrace change and choose to focus on the good things happening in my life to receive more of that.” 


    Quote:


    “Changing your mindset is fantastic, especially when combined with optimizing the Feng Shui of your space, which together allow more of what you want to flow into your life.” — P.K. Odle

    35: The Unbreakable Peace that Dissolves Suffering | guest Joel Drazner | S1point5

    35: The Unbreakable Peace that Dissolves Suffering | guest Joel Drazner | S1point5

    Join us for a thought experiment that points our conversation directly toward the profound jewels of awareness, in territory that special guest Joel Drazner has made his life’s passion and professional purpose.


    Most people spend enormous amounts of energy and effort bouncing stressfully among perception, sensation and thoughts. Why? We are seeking to reduce pain and suffering for ourselves and those we love.


    This episode is a welcome interruption of the frustration that such bouncing builds, despite our moments of success, when using up so much strength and willpower drains us of joy and peace. Temporary and partial relief are not enough, as the next challenge rushes in to overtake us once more. Joel has learned, and teaches, how to step away from that draining circle of entrapment. 


    In Joel’s work as a Resilience Coach, he offers everyone a deceptively simple technique he has taught to countless people, and uses routinely himself. It does not require “experience” to use, and yields an immediate and profound impact on anyone who opens themselves to a new world of non-duality, firmed rooted in unconditional love.


    With self-deference and respect for anyone who chooses to listen, Joel offers true gems in this conversation. Enjoy!


    • • •


    In this episode:


    Joel shares a “Wow” 


    “Underlying and saturating all your experiences in life, no matter how challenging they may be on the surface, is an unbreakable peace made of unconditional love.”


    Joel shares a “Whisper” 


    “I am the KNOWER of all my experience, not merely the content that is known.” 


    Quote:“I love to share a simple universal truth about life, that's hiding in plain sight, that, once seen, can help dissolve suffering permanently.” — Joel Drazner

    More about my special guest:

    34: Soul, Heart & Being Unapologetically Human | guest Zak Lioutas | S1point5

    34: Soul, Heart & Being Unapologetically Human | guest Zak Lioutas | S1point5

    What is being human? Zak Lioutas has taught herself, with vibrant inner spiritual guidance, to see the light in adversity, and to be grounded in heart and soul, so she can fly. 


    She learned that words can stop you from living fully, just as when her mother told her from childhood to be free like a bird, yet held her so tightly so that she felt completely caged. Zak experienced depression from the inside out, not just once, but far too many times in cycles, requiring her to learn so much more than she could know was needed to fully transform that repetitive cycle. 


    She talks abut the two-by-four wake-up calls in her life when lessons came hard. Yet the whispers inside never deserted her, and she shares that wisdom with us in this conversation. 


    Today, people seek her out to teach them; she generously shows them not her way, but the openings available to their find their way.


    When the energy of Earth called her, saying “Please come in for a landing…” she fought it, and then finally accepted that call. It brought her the gift of learning how to become one with everything, no matter whether suffering or light, and Zak gained an even more wondrous gift: authenticity. 


    You are invited to hear from a powerful soul, Zak, who’s earned her Wows!

    In this episode:


    Zak shares a “Wow” 


    “You are stronger than you will ever recognize.”


    Zak shares a “Whisper” 


    “Recognizing the depth of my spirits willpower to rise from the ashes and tap deeper into my gifts.”

    More about my special guest:


    Zak Lioutas is a Soul Activator as well as as  Spiritual Teacher, Mentor, Healer. 


    She is the Founder and C.E.O. of Be Bold, Fierce, Unstoppable. Stay tuned for news of her book, available very soon in 2021.


    Zack is the Host of the Apple Podcasts series Unf*ck Your Mind (UFYM) about awakening and activating your spirit.


    Quote:


    “I guide men and women that are at a crossroads of their life to find and create their bliss by living in their power and being authentically who they are.” — Zak Lioutas 


    Zak explains about the focus of her own podcast:


    “You’ll hear stories of people’s struggle to what they have done to become visionaries of the collective that is assisting humanity to join in this incredible movement [about activating and awakening your spirit]. The podcasts are real, raw conversations about life, and what people do in order to handle adversity and continue to thrive at a higher vibration. It’s not how many times you fall, it’s how fast you jump up and get at it again with a different mindset.”

    33: Creative Vision, Intentionality & High Performance | Michelle Hammons | S1point5

    High performance accomplishment and profoundly reverent breathing aren’t often linked together in our minds. Michelle Hammons has a unique way of doing just that, which she shares in this episode’s can-do conversation. 


    She unites creative exploration, a very artistic view of life, and the grounded good sense it takes to accomplish very big goals, all while being aligned with the universe’s often unpredictable requirements.

    Michelle shares a “Whisper” 


    “Honoring each breath; we take for granted that we are going to breathe without thinking about it too much. The is a delicate, sacred, difference between the breath of life and death, one nanosecond we are here and the next we are gone. Being aware we are gifted each new day and there are no guarantees for any of us.”

    32: Hypnosis & Making Shift Happen | guest Britt Sheflin | S1point5

    32: Hypnosis & Making Shift Happen | guest Britt Sheflin | S1point5

    Self hypnosis is a natural state, as the masterful Britt Sheflin, Master Hypnotist and Certified Hypnotherapist, reminds us in this free-flowing conversation. We spend the early part of our childhood (until about age 8) enjoying learning and the mindset of discovery every day. 


    She explains how, as we grow, new confining filters fit themselves over us and block so much from our awareness, all in the interest of automatic behaviors that seem to make life efficient. Efficient, but dull. And too often full of unsolvable fears or even phobias that settle in upon us. 


    Britt opens a fresh window for everyone to more clearly see these confining patterns and what we can do to invite more ‘Shift” into our lives. 


    Enjoy the ease with which Britt shares her own discoveries, and what she knows works, to give people access to the freedom and spontaneity that allows for a fulfilling life! 


    • • •


    In this episode:


    Britt shares a “Wow” 


    “The moment I first realized that I had the ability to help other people change their lives for the better. It was my very first client during my internship, and I helped remove a debilitating, irrational fear. There's nothing better than helping someone find that freedom!”


    Britt shares a “Whisper” 


    “My first Whisper in regards to hypnosis and the mind/body connection was when I was a kid with severe asthma, and realized that I could stop or prevent an attack with the power of my own mind. ”


    • • •


    Episode Quote:


    “My personal mission is to provide channels for people of all income levels to receive the benefits of hypnotherapy, even if they cannot afford one-on-one sessions. ” — Britt Sheflin


    Listeners please  note:


    Britt fulfills on this mission by offering creating affordable DIY hypnosis kits tailored to each person's suggestibility type, where they receive an instructional e-booklet with cognitive tools, as well as hypnosis session recordings, and unlimited email support during their process of change.

    About my special guest:


    As a small child, Britt would delve so deeply into her private fantasy land (self-hypnosis), that she would be fully immersed in whole worlds that were rich and wonderful layers to add to her daily experience of life. It was these journeys where she first discovered that imagination was a powerful tool, not only for entertainment, but for creating desired change. 


    In young adulthood, Britt made those far-fetched childhood fantasies reality, by moving to Alaska. There she learned about homesteading, permaculture, traveling the world, treehouses, and dance performance. Her performance career landed her in Las Vegas, where she briefly worked in a hypnosis show, and became fascinated with how powerful hypnosis is.


    After moving to Los Angeles to continue performing and teaching dance, Britt developed a successful career as a private chef and a burgeoning filmmaker. Shortly thereafter, Britt met her wonderful partner and future father of their child.  She decided to use her self-hypnosis skills for her own labor and delivery. It resulted in a very peaceful, and incredibly comfortable childbirth that inspired her to study hypnosis in a professional capacity.


    In 2017, Britt  went through the excellent Internship Program at HMI in Tarzana, California. Since then, Britt has become a Master Hypnotist, Certified Hypnotherapist, member of the American Hypnosis Association, and the Hypnotherapist's Union, Local 472. Britt continues her lifelong studies of hypnosis through continuing education programs, and earning supplemental certifications, as well as by sharing her knowledge with others through workshops and presentations.


    Britt looks forward to continuing her hypnotherapy journey, and sharing her unique ability to help her clients make shift happen.
