For 2023, Susan and CrisMarie are excited to dive into their own material from a new perspective. In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, our hosts kick off the new year by sharing their excitement about working together with Rali, a company with a platform that delivers educational content and experiences to entire organizations, teams, and other corporate customers. Partnering with Rali is a great opportunity for Susan and CrisMarie to bring more of their material to new recipients. They specifically reflect on how to deal with the stress of conflict, as stress impacts not only individuals' nervous systems but also organizations and communities. Looking into their own material was an opportunity to tie in so many of the things they've nurtured from, and worked with over the last year, like Jill Bolte Taylor's Whole Brain teachings, and other approaches to finding balance within your own nervous system and engaging better with people. Tune into this episode to kick the year off with Susan and CrisMarie and catch a glimpse of what's to come!

This episode follows the work of neuroscientist Jill Bolte Taylor, who experienced a stroke and had her left brain (including verbal processing) go off-line in an instant. Her story leads us into an understanding of the four "characters" in our brains (two in the left hemisphere and two in the right), which are the sources of our self-focus, our fear, our drive towards connection, and our ability to experience awe, wonder, and mysticism. What is revealed is a staggering reality: we have the power to choose which brain circuitry to run and which brain characters to empower on a daily basis. In this episode we dive into the what of Bolte Taylor's research and, more important, how we can implement life-changing practices that change our thinking and our lives.

This week's guest is a friend of the podcast, Dr Gail Bradbrook.  Best known for her role in co-founding Extinction Rebellion, Gail is one of our nation's (and our world's) deepest thinkers on radical change: what will it take to shift the juggernaut of predatory capitalism from the orgy of extraction, consumption and destruction that has brought us to the edge of crisis, and instead turn it towards a celebration of life in all its forms? Gail is also a leading beacon of practical activism - how can we bring the collective conversation to bear on the existential crises of our time? In our conversation, Gail honours the teachers that have helped her to find balance and insight, and to find practical, clear-eyed hope amidst all the potential for despair.  We go on to explore her work in BCAN (see below) and, particularly, to explore the nature of horizontal organising.  In a world where half the (western) population is wedded to the old hierarchical, patriarchal structures of top-down dominance, what happens in the other half when we experiment with other, less culturally familiar ways of being? Extinction Rebellion was one of the biggest, and most public expressions of horizontal organising in the modern contemporary world. A great deal of theory was put into practice and the results were often visible in newspaper headlines.  Recorded a mere handful of days after the 'We Quit" press release from XR, we look at some of the lessons learned, and how we might do things differently next time. BIO:Dr Gail Bradbrook has been researching, planning, and training for mass civil disobedience since 2010 and is a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion (XR). Since its launch in October 2018, XR has spread around the world so that now, there are more than 1150 XR groups in 75 countries. Gail has trained in molecular biophysics, and her talk on the science of the ecological crisis, the psychology of active participation, and the need for civil disobedience has gone viral and been inspired many to join XR. She is from Yorkshire, the mother of two boys, the daughter of a coal miner, and was named by GQ as one of the top 50 influencers in the UK, and honoured in the 2020 Women's Hour Power list for her part in instigating a rebellion against the British Government.More recently, she is one of the cofounders of the Be the Change Affinity Network of XR activists exploring ways to shift our cultural rigidity into something regenerative and distributive by design.  Gail is a genuine visionary leader - one of one of the deepest, most enlightened thinkers we know; living at the leading edge of change and exploring radical answers to the questions of our time. She's also deeply spiritual and emotionally thoughtful, and it's always an enormous joy to explore with her the big questions of our time: what are we here for and how can we shift the entire nature of our culture in practical ways?

I discovered Jill's story in her viral TED Talk from 2008 (it became the most-watched TED talk ever!) in which the brain scientist describes watching the left side of her brain deteriorate over the course of four hours on the morning of her stroke and how she used her right brain to stay present and get help. I was transfixed. Ever since I've wondered, whatever happened to Jill Bolte Taylor? Did she go back to normal? Is she still living in her right brain and able to experience the “oneness” that spiritualists and quantum physicists can only point to? If so, is she lonely?This chat is one of my favourites in the Wild series and the wisdom Jill shares, I think, is perfectly placed to guide those of us seeking fresh thinking into the New Year.In this chat we get into her how stroke stripped her of her relationships and emotions, understanding the power of each hemisphere of the brain and techniques we can all use to go right and be legitimately and neuroscientifically wilder!You can purchase Jill's booksWhole Brain Living: The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our LifeMy Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal JourneyWatch her TED Talk hereIf you need to know a bit more about me… head to my "about" pageSubscribe to my Substack newsletter for more such conversation Get your copy of my book, This One Wild and Precious Life Let's connect on Instagram!

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is an author, speaker, and Harvard-trained neuroanatomist. You may remember her from her Ted Talk (viewed by over 27 mm people) and her NY Times best-selling book, My Stroke of Insight, A Brain Scientists Journey. In this book, she chronicles the experience of her rare stroke at the age of 37. She lost her ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her past. It took eight years for her to rebuild her brain — to recover all physical, emotional, and thinking abilities. Her second book is called Whole Brain Living, The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life. In this book, she blends neuroanatomy with psychology to illustrate how we can short-circuit emotional reactivity to lead a more fulfilling and peaceful life. Most of us have been led to believe that our right brain houses our emotions and the left brain our rational thinking. Jill shares that it's not that simple. Each of our hemispheres has both an emotional and a thinking brain. In this book, she presents these four distinct modules of cells in the brain as four characters that make up who we are. She presents a whole new language that we can use to understand our behaviors, feelings, and emotions. In this discussion, she introduces us to the 4 characters and offers ways we can find more peace in our daily lives and create healthier relationships. The more we become familiar with each of the characters in ourselves and others, the more power we gain over our thoughts, feelings, relationships, and our lives. Indeed, she says, we discover that we really do have the power to choose who and how we want to be in every moment.

If you're looking for a shot of energy, take a listen to this electric podcast episode with Jill Bolte Taylor, neuroscientist and author of My Stroke of Insight and Whole Brain Living. Jill was also a beloved featured guest on Debra's very first Astrological Immersion. We hope you'll join us for our next Immersion in late January 2023: http://appliedastrology.me/ In the meantime, enjoy this episode and let it energize you- it's better than espresso!    Jill's background in neuroscience was her gateway to spirituality, she reveals, after she had a stroke and spent some time living in her right brain. According to Jill, the “old her” died after the stroke and she was reborn into the person she is now. Thus, Jill has two Astrology charts, her original birth chart, where she has Sun in Taurus, and her rebirth chart which boasts a Sun in Sagittarius! What a difference! Tune in to hear Debra and Jill explore the dynamics of both charts in this episode which is such a unique perspective.    Jill explains her major life moments as “tsunamis” and how these profound experiences allowed her frequency to become “regulated for love.” After Jill's first-to-go-viral TED Talk in 2008, she became an international speaking sensation and proceeded to work on her next book about “whole brain living.” Whole brain living defines the four parts of our brain that act as the control center, and demonstrates how to balance them for maximum happiness. Character 1 goes to work, Character 2 keeps us safe, Character 3 likes to play and have fun, Character 4 connects us with greater purpose. Keep these characters in mind while you listen to this episode.   Turning on the Observer, as Debra teaches, allows one to be able to pull back and see their four characters; to choose who to be and how to respond. As Jill says throughout the episode, we have the power to choose who and how we want to be in each moment. Astrology and the four elements beautifully mirror the whole brain and the four characters.    This is a story that couldn't possibly fit in the allotted time, but Debra and Jill pack a punch of wisdom into this episode. It's a don't miss for anyone seeking confirmation of their varied, unique selves or those looking for a funny, profoundly inspirational listening experience that has a message of universal love!   Key Highlights From The Episode What we are all here to do in this lifetime and how it's our super power How we are hardwired for fear and attraction to each other Understanding whole brain living and our four characters The power of water, osmosis, and how science and spirituality are entwined  Our ultimate purpose in life Timestamps [1:10] Intro of Jill Bolte Taylor [1:25] An energetic explosion of the brain [1:38] What it's like to have Moon in Aries [2:06] Jill tells her backstory, from her stroke until now  [2:40] Debra gives the Astrological version of Jill's bio [2:54] An alternate point of view that scientists would have never considered before Jill's books came out  [3:48] Whole brain living describes the four personalities or characters in your Brain  [4:11] Jill explains the four characters/personalities or selves in our brains [5:45] Debra discusses Jill's charts - her birth chart vs. her rebirth chart post-stroke [7:55] What would your alternate ego be if you weren't a neuroscientist?  [10:10] Our #1 job in life is to love one another, period.

Meet Dr. Margaret Paul   Dr. Margaret Paul is a bestselling author of 12 published books, relationship expert, and co-creator of the powerful Inner Bonding® self-healing process. She has appeared on numerous radio and television shows, including Oprah. Margaret is a member of the Transformational Leadership Council. Dr. Paul has been recognized as a luminary and leader in the field of psychology and personal growth by Jack Canfield, Alanis Morissette, Neale Donald Walsch, and John Gray, to name a few.    First off, I firmly believe that there is a crisis of self-abandonment and a lack of self-love and self-kindness. We dove deep into how to change this disturbing habit and belief system that can wreak havoc on your immune system and body. I know from my own experience that my own past health issues with my thyroid and immune system had everything to do with not knowing how to honor my feelings or take care of myself. I have no doubt that so many illnesses and physical ailments are due to a lack of self-care, self-love, self-kindness, and ultimately self-abandonment. You will learn in this conversation the powerful process of Inner Bonding, one that Dr. Margaret has used with thousands of patients (including herself), and how to use this healing process with yourself. I highly recommend you get her book, The Inner Bonding Workbook, and make your own Inner Bonding work a real priority. If you need any proof, watch Dr. Margaret on my YouTube channel (https://youtube.com/juliereisler) and you will see the pure joy and love emanating out of her and how kind the years have been through this work (seriously, you won't believe that she is 83).     What Does Self-Abandonment Really Mean Self-abandonment is when you are taking care of everyone else but yourself. Most of us are trained to abandon ourselves because our culture, family of origin, religion, or surroundings teach us that it is selfish to care for ourselves first. You can't do this without experiencing physical symptoms. Self-care is actually the opposite of selfishness because it's about taking responsibility for yourself and your well-being. You then take yourself out of the victim mode. Blaming others for your well-being and issues is actually selfish. Taking care of yourself relieves the burden of others taking care of you. Get the difference? This is a powerful distinction. The Inner Bonding process is all about moving out of our head focus into a body focus so we can learn to truly love ourselves, and receive guidance from our Higher Self for the rest of our life.     The 6-Step Process to Inner Bonding:   Be willing to be present with your feelings, including those of loneliness, pain, sadness, and despair. You'll go back to being present and take responsibility for your feelings so that you can get out of your head and into your body and heart. Breathe into your heart and be open to learning about how to love yourself. In this step, you will start to gain access to your higher self, when your frequency is high enough. Keep your body clean with healthy, nourishing, clean organic foods. Keep your thoughts clear and clean as well. Eating well is loving to your body and your whole self. Because Spirit exists at such a high frequency, the more you are in alignment with this energy level, the more you can get 'at will divine guidance'. Imagine a wiser part of yourself (500 years older) full of power, truth, and wisdom, and invite that higher self part of you in. This is the 'loving adult' that lives within each of us. In doing this you'll develop new neural pathways in the brain.  Breathe back into your feelings. For example, if you felt numb and depressed, go back into those feelings and imagine these feelings as your inner child. Ask this part of you: 'How am I treating you? What am I telling you?' We caused our own self-abandonment, so this step is crucial for taking responsibility and discovering how we're abandoning ourselves. This is connecting to our younger self, our 'wounded ego self', which is also Character 2 for those who have read Whole Brain Living by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, or heard either of our two interviews. To listen to either interview, go to: https://youtu.be/gox_ZIwZdpk  or https://youtu.be/_LisJ6vFwEk. There's always a belief, usually about fear, to better understand and discover. Dialogue with your higher guidance about your false beliefs. Ask this part of yourself: 'What is loving to me? What is in my highest good right now?' Take loving action (the more you do this, the more you're programming yourself to be kind and loving to yourself in thought and action) Go back to how you are feeling --- if it's a loving action, you'll feel relief and you won't feel shame or fear.   Inner Bonding is about knowing you are never alone and that you can access your Higher Guidance at any time. Your guidance is ALWAYS there, my friend. My favorite quote from our conversation (which brought tears to my eyes) was this: "We're on the planet to evolve our ability to love". I agree with Dr. Margaret, this is the purpose of connecting to your You-est You. May you remember this goal to be more loving and expand your capacity for love, in all ways, always.    If you are ready for greater support to overcome self-doubt and stop your own internal 'not enough' voice so you can step into your genius and design your best life, connect with Julie to see if she is the right fit to coach and mentor you.

Last Monday, on my 47th birthday, I sat down at my desk and decided it would be a good day to integrate some new software into my business.   Look, it's never a good day to integrate new software, but it's an especially rotten decision on your birthday.   Shortly after that awful life choice (and 13,000 messages on chat support with said software company), I accidentally deleted 84,628 emails. That is not an exaggerated number I made up. That is the literal amount of emails that I watched disappear from my inbox.   84,628.   Most of them were from the last 18 months. Many of them were filled with things like contracts and critical client information.  Needless to say, I spent a decent chunk of my birthday having VERY BIG feelings. The kind your 3-year-old has when you give them the orange cup instead of the green cup.   VERY BIG.   I yelled. I cried. I definitely dropped a few (like, 347) F-bombs.   I tried to remind myself of what my therapist recently shared with me. Based on research from brain scientist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, she told me that feelings are waves that rise and recede all day long. These waves last only 90 seconds. After that, we're simply re-stimulating our internal circuitry. In other words, if we stay stuck in horrible feelings for longer than 90 seconds it's because we have created our own feedback loop keeping us there. This is great news because it tells us we have the power to move through feelings very quickly if we have the right skills in place.   This just made me madder, if I'm being honest. I knew that I was gonna need more than 90 freaking seconds. And how dare these doctors and therapists try to put limits on my ability to hold rage! I had to dig deep into my coaching toolbox to coach myself on my birthday. While I definitely felt the universe was conspiring against me, I was determined to move through my big feelings in order to still find a way to find joy in my day. In this episode, I talk you through how to use unconventional gratitude practices to get over yourself and get through sticky emotions - whether you deleted 84,628 emails or someone gave you the orange cup instead of the green one.  Link mentioned: Get the SMA Newsletter to learn about our January 2023 events: shamelessmom.com/newsletter Sponsor info and promo codes: Please find our sponsor information here: shamelessmom.com/sponsor/ Interested in becoming a sponsor of the Shameless Mom Academy?

I find that all of us have a single emotion which is our fall back. I realize this sounds odd but hear me out.   In any given day one can run through the gamut of emotions. I find I seem to always gravitate to one emotion: NOT that the particular emotion actually fits the scenario it just seems to be the comfort zone of emotion. for many many years that emotion was anger. It wasn't always appropriate. in fact, probably most of the time, 'anger' was not the emotion that fir the scenario. It seemed to be the first response to a lot. i now know it was triggered by pain.  Living in pain 24/7 can be exhausting, and frustrating and can make you feel like a pot about to boil over at any moment.   “When someone suffers from pain for an extended period, this can affect their mood negatively,” Dr. Cosio explains. “These mood changes can negatively impact their levels of activity. People begin to engage in more unhealthy behaviors and less in healthy ones.” Interestingly, a study Conducted by Dr Cosio's research team. in 2018 looked at the prevalence rates of different psychological domains among veterans with chronic pain, they found that women (88%) reported anger more often than men (72%.).  They say anger can be a coping mechanism in response to pain.  Chronic pain is actually proven to be worsened by anger.  Anger releases cortisol, adrenaline and other chemicals that make things worse all round. When you Look for more... As I began to explore alternate modalities to deal with my pain, like meditation, visualization mindfulness and gratitude, I found myself less likely to become angry and had to learn to feel all the other emotions more freely, and allow them to flow and go.  Did you know the lifespan of an emotion is about 90 seconds? ( attributed to Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard-trained neuroscientist who specialized in the anatomy of the brain.) Yet, we humans are so attached to the story.. we can drag the emotions out for ages, based on the stories we tell ourselves... I have seen a huge change over the years, where my first go-to was anger, now I find gratitude is my go-to. Finding the gratitude in all the little things seems to increase those things I can be grateful for, all around me. This is an incredibly important shift for me.  Not only has it changed how and if I react, this change to mindfulness and gratitude has allowed me to significantly lower my pain medications.  I am so grateful for this new lease on life. Being able to interact without the haze of heavy medication lets so much more joy into my day.  I learned that all of it was my choice.  Viktor Frankl wrote, “When we can no longer change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves... Everything can be taken from a human but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”  in his book Man's Search for Meaning,  Being present in all the moments you can, gives you a better appreciation for the little things. Mindfulness can show you a wealth of gifts both large and small for which to be thankful. And making the choice to improve yourself, is the greatest gift you can give to you. This is why I all ways make an effort to make the most of today, every day!  And why I sign off my correspondence the same way!

In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie are joined by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor to discuss her newest book, Whole Brain Living: The Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life. As you might remember from High School biology classes, the human brain has two hemispheres, with an emotional system and a thinking system in each one. Each system has a specific way of processing information, and therefore, Dr. Jill has personified each of these four systems into several characters with different personalities within ourselves. Dr. Jill breaks down each character and how they reflect on the way we feel and think. She also explains how after getting to know your four characters, you can call them into a huddle and have the power to choose, moment by moment, who and how you want to be in every circumstance or situation in your life.

Do you know the KISS principle? It's an acronym for “keep it simple stupid.” It was first coined in 1960 by aircraft engineer Kelly Johnson as a design principle for the U.S. Navy. We had our own version of the KISS principle in my family. (Listen in to hear what it is!)  In the past, I had a tendency to make things complicated. What I tend to notice now is that often when I start to feel frustrated, irritated, anxious, desperate, frenetic, pressured, worried, or overwhelmed, that's my cue that something needs to be simplified.   What You'll Learn: - Why Kelly Johnson first used the KISS principle (It's an interesting origin story!) - What the eight most common variations of the phrase are - What my family's special version of the phrase is - Why we often make things more complicated than they really are, or need to be   Start to pay closer attention to your feelings and see if there's any connection to something that you've made complicated, and ask yourself, “How can I simplify this?” There are always ways to simplify our lives.   Resources: - Get my FREE 7-minute training ‘Your First Step to Better Life Balance' https://charisyourlife.com/freetraining  - ‘Whole Brain Living' by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. https://amzn.to/3Nm8JYU - Follow me on Instagram: https://instagram.com/charisyourlife  - Follow me on Facebook: https://facebook.com/charisyourlife/  - Follow me on LinkedIn: https://linkedin.com/in/charisyourlife/ - Follow me on YouTube: https://charisyourlife.com/youtube/ - Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/charisyourlife/ - Follow me on Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/charisyourlife/ - My website: https://charisyourlife.com/

Emily & Meg discuss their resistance to their feelings of letting go. They talk about how the mind wants to repress, suppress, deny, or make stories up about why certain feelings are there and how they are working on letting go. “The emotions that we all feel can be calibrated numerically on a vibrational scale - the highest one isn't love, it's peace. The lowest one isn't fear, it's shame.” “When you do deep healing, a lot of times you can't find the stories again, but let it go. Don't even fucking try to remember the stories.” “What is the payoff from this story? Is that payoff/vanity keeping me in the story?” “In a ‘desire/craving' state, we are operating in a lack state, not a relaxed and trusting state.” “Surrender is simply- it is ok if it happens and it is ok if it doesn't.” “You can't stop others from hurting by hurting yourself for them. There is no value in that.” References from the episode: Heal (Netflix Documentary) Featuring – Deepak Chopra, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Shefali Tsabary Married at First Sight Oprah For further exploration, we loved this book: Letting Go - The Pathway to Surrender by David Hawkins Original Art by Meg Miller #podcastersofinstagram #podcastinglife #applepodcasts #spotify #anchorfm #spotify #spotifypodcasts #personalgrowth #selfdevelopment #selfhelp #habits #lettinggo #divineintervention #ridethewave #simple #letthatshitgo #vibrationalenergy #twelvesteps #vibratehigher #incrementalrelease #detachment #takingontoomuchresponsiblity

How we experience emotional pain in life is connected to the source or cause of the pain. This birthed the concept of clean pain vs dirty pain. But what exactly is clean pain? What is dirty pain? And do the differences between them hold a key to how we work through each type of pain? In this episode, I want to share the powerful concept of clean pain vs dirty pain. I have personally experienced empowerment in how I handle emotional suffering by understanding and framing pain through this concept. The core difference lies in how concrete the source of the pain is. Is the pain something specific you can name that happened? Or is the pain in how you are thinking about what happened? Let's examine this together. “We think that sometimes by spending a lot of time worrying about something or thinking about something, we can somehow solve it. Or even prevent ourselves from feeling the discomfort or pain. But what it does is prolong it.” – Dr. Sara Dill What You'll Learn What is clean pain?

Did you know that humans have brains that are prone to addiction? So how do we protect our kids from addiction to excessive gaming and screen time? That's what we're going to discuss today with my special guest, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. Yes - our topic is literally brain science and how we can apply what we know about the brain to help kids navigate screen time, social media and the pressures online. Dr. Jill is profoundly gifted at taking complex scientific information and boiling it down into ideas that stick and are helpful in understanding humans and the way our brains work. One of my all time favorite quotes is from her. "Be responsible for the energy you bring into a room." This interview was so insightful with so many aha moments that it's split into two podcast episodes. This is the second one. Please listed to the first one (episode 10) before this one! You'll get background information on the four sides of the human brain and how a child's brain and a teen brain is actually different than an adult brain and why that matters, when it comes to parenting and working with kids. Grab a pencil. You're gonna wanna take notes on this one! Guest informationDr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroscientist. In 1996 she experienced a severe hemorrhage (AVM) in the left hemisphere of her brain causing her to lose the ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. Her memoir, My Stroke of Insight, documenting her experience with stroke and eight-year recovery, spent 63 weeks on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list and is still routinely the #1 book in the category Stroke in the Amazon marketplace. Dr. Jill is a dynamic teacher and public speaker who loves educating all age groups, academic levels, as well as corporations and not-for-profit organizations about the beauty of our human brain. She focuses on how we can activate the power of our neuroplasticity to not only recover from neurological trauma, but how we can purposely choose to live a more flexible, resilient, and satisfying life. In 2008 Dr. Jill gave the first TED talk that ever went viral on the Internet, which now has well over 27.5 million views. Also in 2008, Dr. Jill was chosen as one of Time magazine's “100 Most Influential People in the World” and was the premiere guest on Oprah Winfrey's “Soul Series” webcast. Her new book, Whole Brain Living – the Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life is a #1 release on Amazon in categories ranging from Neuroscience to Nervous System Diseases and Stroke. Unplug & Plug inWe always end with this question for guests - What are you plugging into? And what are you unplugging from? Dr. Jill didn't disappoint!

Imagine having a way to peek inside your child's head and see what's going on inside their brain. Wouldn't that be fascinating? Today our topic is literally brain science and how we can apply what we know about the brain to help kids navigate screen time, social media and the pressures online. I'm thrilled to be chatting with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a Harvard-trained brain anatomist and author, about the four sides of the human brain and how a child's brain and a teen brain is actually different than an adult brain and why that matters, when it comes to parenting and working with kids. Dr. Jill is profoundly gifted at taking complex scientific information and boiling it down into ideas that stick and are helpful in understanding humans and the way our brains work. One of my all time favorite quotes is from her. "Be responsible for the energy you bring into a room." This interview was so insightful with so many aha moments that it's split into two podcast episodes. This is the first one. In part 2, we'll talk about addiction and the human brain. How do we protect our kids from excessive gaming and screen time? Grab a pencil. You're gonna wanna take notes on this one! Guest informationDr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a Harvard-trained and published neuroscientist. In 1996 she experienced a severe hemorrhage (AVM) in the left hemisphere of her brain causing her to lose the ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. Her memoir, My Stroke of Insight, documenting her experience with stroke and eight-year recovery, spent 63 weeks on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller list and is still routinely the #1 book in the category Stroke in the Amazon marketplace. Dr. Jill is a dynamic teacher and public speaker who loves educating all age groups, academic levels, as well as corporations and not-for-profit organizations about the beauty of our human brain. She focuses on how we can activate the power of our neuroplasticity to not only recover from neurological trauma, but how we can purposely choose to live a more flexible, resilient, and satisfying life. In 2008 Dr. Jill gave the first TED talk that ever went viral on the Internet, which now has well over 27.5 million views. Also in 2008, Dr. Jill was chosen as one of Time magazine's “100 Most Influential People in the World” and was the premiere guest on Oprah Winfrey's “Soul Series” webcast. Her new book, Whole Brain Living – the Anatomy of Choice and the Four Characters That Drive Our Life is a #1 release on Amazon in categories ranging from Neuroscience to Nervous System Diseases and Stroke. Important Links and ResourcesTakeaway"Be responsible for the energy you bring into a room," is a quote Dr. Jill is well-known for, or as she said in her interview "Please be responsible for the circuitry you're running". Wouldn't the world be a better place if we taught our kids this idea - that how they show up energetically determines their success in relationships?

So many times in the past, I have been in the head-down zone, hyper-focused on my goals, working many nights and weekends, for weeks and months at a time, not paying attention to my body's fuel gauge. Then, I'd find myself totally depleted, and it would take weeks, months, or even years to replenish. In this episode, I want to help you understand the importance of filling up your energy tank before you hit burnout. What You'll Learn:  - What happened to me as a result of taking care of business while neglecting myself - How learning about neuroscience helped me understand what happened with my brain during burnout - The four characters in our brain as described by neuroanatomist, Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. - A visualisation that can help you create some breathing room  In order to avoid feeling depleted and burned-out, you need to create some white space in your schedule, otherwise you're just continuing to loop around a racetrack. You have to make a commitment to yourself, start saying no to some things and saying yes to self-care. Although it's not easy to just flip that switch, know that you are not alone and there is help and support available to you.  Resources:  - Check out my free training ‘Your First Step to Better Life Balance' at https://charisyourlife.com/freetraining    - ‘Whole Brain Living' by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. https://amzn.to/3Nm8JYU - ‘My Stroke of Insight', TED Talk by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. https://ted.com/talks/jill_bolte_taylor_my_stroke_of_insight  - Follow me on Instagram: https://instagram.com/charisyourlife  - Follow me on Facebook: https://facebook.com/charisyourlife/  - Follow me on LinkedIn: https://linkedin.com/in/charisyourlife/ - Follow me on YouTube: https://charisyourlife.com/youtube/ - Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/charisyourlife/ - Follow me on Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/charisyourlife/ - My website: https://charisyourlife.com/

End Secret Bingeing

Today I talk about the book, Whole Brain Living by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, where she descries the four characters (or quadrants) of the brain:Upper Left (Character 1, or "Ego")Lower Left (Character 2, or "Fear")Lower Right (Character 3, or "Love")Upper Right (Character 4, or "Soul")So often, most people (but especially binge eaters), take their actions and behaviors so personally. They make their actions mean so much about who they are, about their soul, instead of just understanding that they have these other characters in their brain that are just being utilized in the wrong situation. So many binge eaters are all or nothing thinkers (attributed to their character 1 ego), so if they don't feel like going to the gym that day, then see? They're lazy. They're weak. They're not driven. They don't care about their health. They have no ambition or drive. If they binge it means they're totally out of control. They must like food too much. They must be gluttonous people who don't know the value of hard work, self-control and determination. Or that they have no integrity. They can't keep their promises. They're flaky or unreliable. It's truly just awful how we talk to ourselves. And then when they realize their negative self-talk, they ironically beat themselves up even more for not being nicer to themselves. It's so painful. It's exhausting. And it doesn't serve them as they work to build a better relationship with themselves and heal their relationship with food.So this whole brain approach is able to better untangle or separate our worthiness and value with our actions. We're able to more clearly see that we're not our thoughts, we're not our feelings, we're not our actions. If we binged, we likely just had our character 2 (fear) on center stage. And instead of doing a brain huddle and utilizing the traits and skills of each character, we just listened to and trusted our character 2. Who is, notoriously, not very trustworthy. And beating ourselves up after the binge, is still giving character 2 the spotlight.The whole brain approach helps us disassociate our innate value and identity with our brains. So when we feel overwhelming, negative emotions, instead of trying to avoid them because they're painful, or trying to logic our way out of them with thoughts like (“I shouldn't be feeling this, this isn't a big deal. This is fine. Everything is fine.), we can more easily recognize that maybe our character 1 Ego is giving something more significance than it should. Or maybe our character 2 (our Fear) just needs to throw a tantrum right now, and the rest of our characters can let it do that in a safe way, acknowledging that this part of its function, this is healthy. And when we stop judging our character 2, we can let it throw a fit, and then once it calms, begin the process of truly understanding what was at the heart of the reaction - ultimately, growing in our self-awareness and our resiliency. Whole Brain Living gives us the language to really know more about our subconscious thoughts, feelings and actions. We can notice things like “Oof, I'm getting hyper focused on details and nothing I do seems good enough right now. I wonder if my character 1 (ego) is taking over the rest of the team. How would my characters 3 (love) and 4 (soul) respond to this situation? What would that look like? How would that feel in my body? That question by the way, how does this feel in my body, is so effective because it immediately puts your character 4 (soul) back online.Schedule a free 30 minute call with me: sammybeecoaching.comFollow me on Instagram: @sammybeecoaching

In this week's episode, Barb and Michelle talk about this sneaky habit that drains our energy: writing stories. Our minds are extremely powerful and creative, if unchecked, our minds can go into overdrive writing stories and contemplating possibilities that we simply don't know to be true. We can never know what it's fully like to walk in someone else's shoes, so we might as well stop trying to fill in the gaps with our own creative ideas.  Follow us @MichelleMaros and @Peaceful_Barb and share your experiences with us @BarbKnowsBestPod or at https://kite.link/barb-knows-best. Episode Notes: Writing stories is the #1 habit that drains our energy. Deepen your awareness of what your mind is feeling and where it is going so that you can redirect the mind from going down a negative path. Name it to tame it.  Noticing and naming our emotions helps create some distance between the emotion and the intense feelings that accompany it. Ask yourself, is this true? Is the story you are writing true?  Find a neutral statement to replace the negative. Ask yourself, is the story that I'm writing right now empowering me and inspiring me? The stories we tell about ourselves matter most.       Resources Mentioned in Today's Podcast: Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor - https://www.drjilltaylor.com/ Myleik - https://mytaughtyou.com/  Rainer Maria Rilke - https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/rainer-maria-rilke Cheryl Strayed https://www.cherylstrayed.com/index.htm

Meet Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is back again on the You-est You podcast! Dr. Jill is a Harvard-trained and published neuroanatomist. In 1996 she experienced a severe hemorrhage in the left hemisphere of her brain, causing her to lose the ability to walk, talk, read, write, or recall any of her life. Her memoir, My Stroke of Insight, documenting her experience with stroke and eight-year recovery, spent 63 weeks on the New York Times non-fiction bestseller list and is still routinely the #1 book about stroke on Amazon. Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a dynamic teacher and public speaker who loves educating all age groups, academic levels, as well as corporations about the beauty of our human brain and its ability to recover from trauma. In 2008 she gave the first TED talk that ever went viral on the Internet, which now has well over 26 million views. Also, in 2008, Dr. Taylor was chosen as one of Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" and was the premiere guest on Oprah Winfrey's "Soul Series" webcast. Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is also the author of the most recent bestselling book, Whole Brain Living.    I invited Dr. Jill back on to my podcast to talk about how we can learn to self-soothe ourselves during such a stressful time that has increased the amount of anxiety and fear in so many people's lives. This conversation will help you learn how to talk to the scientific four parts of your brain (this is an excellent refresh if you want to reconnect with your four characters) and start unifying all of your characters through a brain huddle.    The Four Characters  The brain has two hemispheres; the left and the right. The right hemisphere is all about being here, right now. It's about being experiential in the present moment. Character 4 is the thinking part of the brain that is about consciousness and that feeling of being grateful to be alive. Character 3 is the emotional part of the right brain that is creative, innovative, open, and will ask, 'What does that feel like?' The part that is feeling the stress of the world and needing the self-soothing. The left hemisphere is about the past, present and the future and is where we individuate and form a sense of being an individual. Character 2 is about your emotions in your left brain and Character 1 is the thinking part of the left brain that will look for structure and organization, and will ask 'how am I a functional human being in the world? How can I self-soothe and take the weight off my shoulders?   Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor and I shared the names of our 4 Characters. Share in the You-est You Podcast Community on Facebook your names!      Emotions are really just energy in motion; emotion is energy running on a circuit that can feel like rage, sadness, joy, elation, etc. Think of emotions as energy flowing through the cells in our brain and body.    The Brain Huddle  Think of your four characters who are on the same team and here to connect about your next play in life. The best way to build your muscle of leaning on a brain huddle is to start doing this 20x's day. In the Brain Huddle, BRAIN stands for Breath, Recognize, Appreciate, Inquire, Navigate. Here's a deeper dive into what this means: Breath - Be present in the moment with your breath Recognize- Notice who called the huddle (which character) Appreciate - Appreciate all four of your characters and realize they are all on the same team Inquire - Ask, who wants the mic? Ask your four characters who wants to talk, and allow for all four to share. You don't need to give your power away. Navigate - Use this process to navigate moment to moment   How to Self-Soothe Yourself  Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor reminds us to call in your four characters for a brain huddle and give yourself time, space, and grace to connect with which character wants to share. Often it is your sweet Character 2 who has emotions to share. Know this is the process that helps you self-soothe. That will bring you a sense of calm during the storm of the past several years. Allow yourself the space to feel all emotions and surround your character with love and compassion.   My 3 favorite quotes from this episode: "We're feeling creatures who think! Not the other way around.", "Our past pain isn't here to be a lifestyle. It's here so you can learn, grow and move on." and "The quality of your dealing with your emotions will affect the quality of your thinking."   And, a total mind-blown moment: "We've been alive when our mothers were in our grandmother's 5th week of gestation."     Final Thoughts Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor enlightens us with the process of The Brain Huddle to teach us how to self-soothe during these tumultuous times. The pandemic has brought in so many emotions, and Dr. Jill helps us understand how to better navigate them.      Connect with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor Website: drjilltaylor.com Facebook page: Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor Instagram: @drjillboltetaylor LinkedIn: Jill Bolte Taylor Twitter: @DrJBT     Looking To Help Others Know Who They Are and Design Their Best Life?

Sara is a cognitive neuroscientist at the University of California, Irvine and author of the powerful new book, The Power of the Downstate: Recharge Your Life Using Your Body's Own Restorative Systems. She is passionate about understanding how the brain works through her research into sleep and the autonomic nervous system. In fact, her seven-bedroom sleep lab works literally around the clock to discover methods for boosting cognition by napping, stimulating the brain with electricity, sound and light, and pharmacology. Her research findings have been published in such leading scientific journals as Nature Neuroscience and The Proceedings from the National Academy of Science, and covered by major media outlets, in no small part because of their importance and practical application in helping us feel better, and live healthier, more vibrant lives.You can find Sara at: Website | TwitterIf you LOVED this episode you'll also love the conversations we had with Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor about understanding your brain to live a better life.Check out our offerings & partners: My New Book SparkedMy New Podcast SPARKEDPeloton: Peloton uses technology and design to connect the world through fitness, empowering people to be the best version of themselves anywhere, anytime.
