Should you be hearing or watching this episode of Conversations with Mother Earth from anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, then soon you will possibly be treated with your first frigid, winter frost. And, if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, then perhaps you are already starting to feel the scorching rays from the summer sun […] The post Sheltering Memories With Kria Djoyoadhiningrat, Slumfighters International appeared first on WebTalkRadio.net.
On this week's episode, I share a simple ritual we created this Thanksgiving, inspired by Robin Wall Kimmerer's book “Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teaching of Plants”. My desire was to honor the Lenni Lenape people who's land we live on, to honor Mother Earth and to acknowledge what Debra Beal, my guest from last week uncovered for me about the origins of Thanksgiving from the indigenous perspective. She said that the original Thanksgiving feast was a celebration by the colonizers once they had massacred a substantial number of Indians. I wanted to take that information and incorporate it into the way my family celebrates Thanksgiving. I think it is critical to be aware and conscious of our history and do what I can to weave it into how we celebrate this holiday. The 12 of us gathered in my home, took turns reading the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address. This translation of the Mohawk version of the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address was developed and published in 1993, and provided courtesy of Six Nations Indian Museum and the Tracking Project. May we bring this depth of gratitude for the natural world not just once a year on Thanksgiving, but every day as we cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Blessings, love and deep gratitude.

Ruled by Jupiter and the element of Fire, the Sag energy brings you joy, optimism, and meaning. This season is a time to enjoy life, process past events, and be hopeful for what is to come. Sagittarius is known as the wander, the forever student and the philosopher, reminding you that there is always something to learn for your personal growth. Remain open, yet, have discernment to the information you take in so that you can expand your consciousness through this shared collective experience. Sagittarius can also inspire visions of travel, including long journeys and foreign peoples. But the thing is, Sagittarius also teaches you that it isn't the destination that's important, it's the journey. And, it's how you face challenges and find meaning through all the twists and turns especially through this eclipse season. The Sagittarius vibe helps you to view all the events that occur on your path as experiences that help you evolve. All the ups and downs are leading to expansion. Seek out new experiences with people who aren't like you. Take a different route so that you can find a different perspective.

This prayer is based on the belief that the world, our Mother Earth cannot be taken for granted. The elements.. Fire...Air...

In about a month Christmas and other Festive Holidays will be upon us. And what does that mean...it is the Holiday of giving which is good, but giving of what? At this time of year there is a surge of plastics being purchased in the form of toys, household items, games and the lists goes on. We need to change our thinking and behaviors to shop for more eco-friendly, sustainable, earth conscious products. All this plastic is damaging for all inhabitants of the Earth as well as our waterways, the oceans, rivers, our soil, and Mother Earth herself.

How many times have you questioned whether or not your life was in alignment with your purpose for being here? With the ever common phenomenon of burnout, fatigue, and drain, it's becoming increasingly common for us to have these never-ending thoughts. This week on the podcast, we take a moment for some deep heart salve with Niria Alicia who guides us to think about ancestral instruction, precious purpose, rituals for liberation, and what it means to be human in this time. This warm and rich conversation looks at spiritual crisis in tandem with climate crisis, the allure of self-sabotage, and the problem with the many “solutions” we are offered to the problems our world faces in this epoch. Niria Alicia is a Xicana Indigena community organizer, human rights advocate, educator and storyteller dedicated to protecting the sacredness of Mother Earth and the dignity of historically oppressed peoples and the more-than-human world. Born 500 years after Columbus' invasion in a migrant farmworker community, her struggle for love and liberation exists at the intersections of migrant justice, climate justice and indigenous rights. In 2020 she was given the highest honor the UN awards young people by being named the Young Champion of the Earth for North America. Niria's proudest accomplishments and honors have been learning how to make tortillas in the traditional way for her abuelita, growing her first milpa from her family's heirloom corn seeds and inheriting her great-great grandmother's metate, a culturally significant ancestral tool made from lava rock that has the hand imprints of the strong women she is proud to descend from.

Where is our "home"? Can we remember? What is our home? Maya describes it as follows: Our home is comprised of three main chambers: Body, Mind and Earth. In defining what "home" really is, we hope that our listeners will recognize/approach Mother Earth as a core component of the Sacred Self. Throughout history, we have been experiencing the anthropocene effects on Mother Earth. In large part, our human memory recall of the Sentient Earth has become progressively dulled. We can hardly remember where home is, or barely understand that home is far greater than a piece of architecture. There is a general miasma that clouds even the most brilliant science of our time; the mis-truth that science and spirituality are two entirely separate entities. In the last century, we have developed a host of "bad anthropogenic sciences" because the idea that spirit is always non-separate from scientific discoveries/advents remains a popular belief in the scientific community.In Native traditions we recognize that science depends on spirituality, and can never fulfill its noble or brilliant vision unless this premise is understood by modern physics/science.Listen In~ as Maya brilliantly defines "Home" through the lens of Vedic wisdom.Background Music: Deuter's Moon and Earth; & Buddha's Lounge; Serene MoonSupport the show (http://paypal.me/wiseearth)

Today's episode is a dynamic conversation with Anita Sanchez, Ph.D., Dr. Elizabeth Lindsey, and Tim Harjo about Indigenous Wisdom. Our guests initially came together as a panel to speak about the Hoffman Process during our first-ever virtual Hoffman Conference in April 2021. Their panel discussion titled, Indigenous Voices: Answering the Call to Mend Our World, offered profound wisdom for all of us to heed in these times. Each has been a solo guest on our podcast (links below). Now, we've invited them back to share this wisdom with you. A beautiful part of this conversation is how the Hoffman Process overlaps with Native culture. All three of our guests find the Process to be aligned, and even the same, as elements of their culture. What they share is truly beautiful about what it means to do the inner work in order to realize who we really are. Tim, Elizabeth, and Anita share these core beliefs: separation is an illusion, we are never alone, we must remember who we are, and our modern lives are in need of indigenous wisdom. As Anita suggests, we invite you to "listen with soft ears and expanded heart." More About Our Guests Tim Harjo Timothy Harjo Tim is a member of the Fort Sill Apache Tribe. As a child, he was a student at an Indian Boarding school, as were other members of his family. He did his Process as part of Hoffman Institute's Leadership Path while a student at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. As the General Manager of KNMQ Television in Albuquerque, NM, his vision is to amplify Native voices into the mainstream conversation around how we live with each other and with our Mother Earth. Tim earned a B.S. degree in Management from Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO. He then earned his Juris Doctorate is from Arizona State University.

Most people don't think about running for office when pondering environmental careers. However, California Assemblyman Eduardo Garcia may change your mind.In a state ravaged by air pollution and wildfires, Garcia has crafted policy that fights climate change. Recently, he introduced AB 1500, which helped inspire the Climate Resilience Bond. This allocates $3.7 billion of the state's 2021-22 budget toward shoring up disadvantaged communities against “catastrophic wildfire, sea level rise, drought, extreme heat and flooding.” It also provides for infrastructure investments. “The connection here to climate, the drought, the fires . . . is recognizing that we have a serious crisis with mother earth,” Garcia said. “We've got some work to do when it comes to not just building the infrastructure, but the conservation aspect of it is key for the first time.”Garcia hardly followed a traditional “green” education and career path. He took time off after high school, then attended his local community college and completed his bachelor's degree at the University of California Riverside. His journey eventually led him to the Coachella City Council at 27. At 29, he became Coachella's mayor, the youngest ever elected in that city. In 2014, Garcia became assemblyman. Garcia believes that young people can help save the planet by serving others. “I never thought that going into public service would end up being a career,” he said. “When I came to realize that it is something that one can do to contribute to the betterment . . . of conditions in our communities, I kind of got married to the idea. I've been doing it since.”Resources included in this episode: Ca.gov: Budget Summary A breakdown of how the Climate Resilience Bond will be used.

Listen To Episode 421 As Josh Trent Uncovers: [00:00] Our Spiritual Intelligence Hey, it's Josh from Wellness Force. This is a really special Solocast. It's been a long time. And the Solocast is really an art form that I think we all can practice, but today I want to give a different kind of practice to the world, to your consciousness specifically. Many of the concepts we explore on Wellness Force take us between physical and emotional intelligence. But as you know, in the background, there was always the spiritual intelligence that runs all things. This Solocast I actually recorded in a little hand recorder earlier this year, before the birth of my son. I was out at Tim's event, Tim Corcoran, who is the CEO, the founder of Purpose Mountain. Make sure you could listen to that podcast. If you haven't heard it, it is amazing for any men that want to become fathers or father the young man inside of themselves. [00:52] Break Out of the Sedation And what you're about to hear was actually dictated from a hand recorder when I was coming off the hill, when I was getting all these beautiful reflections, purely in the potent medicine of mother nature, and it was about our sedation. One of the things I found in 100 hours of being completely in nature, immersed with no food, only water, no fire, no knife, no protection, no cell phone, no other human beings. Literally my breath, water, a sleeping bag, and a tarp. It was incredible. And I'm going to share this with you. I hope that this medicine reaches you wherever you are, whatever phase you're in, whatever growth potential you're leaning into. My belief is that if you slow down and you breathe and you take in this medicine of really the Solocast for us all, that you can break out of the sedation we're in. Our society is set up to sedate us. [01:52] Society Sedation And so let's begin. In this podcast, you're going to learn about our sedation tools that we all have to fight against and be aware of. We'll talk about food. We'll talk about media. Then we'll talk about your own thoughts. We'll talk about freedom and we'll explore the difference between pure disease and pure health. If you yourself have dealt with addiction of any kind or disassociation or anxiety or depression, this podcast is perfect for you. Solocast society sedation. Our society is set up to sedate us. This is not a conspiracy theory. Everything in the truth is out in plain sight. Look at the food, media, current events, even the general narrative and consensus in most communities is negative. And you'll find that everything is about keeping you safe and playing it nice and cozy, but safe, nice, and cozy does not live on the edge of juiciness. Does not live on the edge of what life really is. [02:52] Sedation in Modern Society Yes, there are times where we do need to be sedated, like if we've had a traumatic event or if we've worked our butt off and gotten super sweaty and we've earned our relaxation. We just need to chill. Yes. Being sedated is okay at times. I'm an advocate for conscious rest, but not as a pulse of life, not as a heartbeat of our existence. Let's explore the factors of sedation in our modern society. As we begin with food, understand that food keeps us sedated by tons of calories with no nutrients, plain simple facts. Sedation occurs when people consume too many calories and they gain too much weight. Now there's a huge backstory that's psychosomatic and emotionally intelligence based that attaches to that. We'll save that for another show, but essentially what happens food is that if we take in too many calories, and those calories are void and empty of any kind of micronutrients, just because something's fat, protein, and carbs, doesn't always mean it's real food. [03:50] The Palette of Human Emotions If you look at the amount of money that is spent literally in the billions, with a big ass B, by behavioral scientists, you actually study the palette of human emotions if you're a behavioral scientist for Kraft foods, for Burger King, for McDonald's, and you get the inflection point of the perfect amount of sweetness. This is how people become addicted. This is the sedation tool that is called soda. It's called the bliss point. Did you know one of the ways that big foods sedates us, if we allow them to, is this bliss point? Did you even know that the bliss point exists? Where if it's one degree sweeter, you won't drink it, but if it's one degree not as sweet, you won't drink it either. There's a perfect Goldilocks point that all chemists for Dr. Pepper, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, all these big companies with their labels on trucks flying all over America. [04:42] Enslaving the Population They literally pay billions of dollars over the course of decades, and they spend a billion dollars a year on other marketing. But if you add it up with the salary, the research and development, everything that goes into basically being a slave, scientists who know that they're enslaving the population for diabetes, for leptin resistance, for extra ghrelin, they're doing it for money. Can you imagine, can you truly imagine going to bed at night being one of these behavioral psychologists, behavioral scientists, really they're scientists, not psychologists. You're one of these people who literally it's your job to addict people to soda and addict people to junk food. Now, this isn't about judgment, but seriously, can you think about that? Can you imagine going to bed knowing that your work and how you get paid is to find the bliss point that's going to make people fat and die earlier. [05:36] The Global Spread of Bad Habits Whoa. and I really do say that without judgment. It's more just, Hey, what are you doing? So I digress, let's get back to it. Essentially, when we look at the topic of sedation in food and beverage, specifically, whether it's soda or Jimmy Dean sausages, or frozen foods, you ever go into a grocery store and you look down the aisle and you see this absolute Mecca of food. There's angels and junk food playing harps with little Ding Dongs. And you wonder to yourself who is eating this shit? Well, look at the research. A lot of Americans are, and it's even worse in other countries because our habits are bleeding over there. So this is what happens on a mental level. As you are trained from childhood to start eating these foods that are void of nutrients, the brain actually gets starved of calories and nutrients that it needs. [06:26] What Even is Real Food? It doesn't get its healthy fats like avocados. It doesn't get its fish oils like the omega-3s. This is what gets us to where we are, whether it's food or beverage or snacks, all of these for foods, if you flip the panel over and you look at the ingredient list, this is a queue. If it has more than a handful of ingredients or you look at those ingredients and you don't exactly know what it means are the worst one, if you look at the ingredients and it says natural flavors, look the hell out because it is not a real food. This is a food substitute designed by commerce to keep you sedated. Now, this might seem a little jarring if you're hearing it for the first time, but it keeps you sedated. These foods that are in the GRAS list, G-R-A-S. Search on DuckDuckGo for G-R-A-S. [07:13] The GRAS List That's generally regarded as safe. These additives turn your brain power down by adding fat to your body, making you feel sluggish and tired. Well I say, hell no. Hell no. Are you with me? Not for me. Not for you. You can take your sedation tools and put them somewhere else, Pepsi, Coke, Jimmy Dean, KFO, meat and chicken raised with animals and poultry standing in their own feces. The list goes on and on. And so that's the first piece. And there could be an entire discussion on that, but you already know this. If you've listened to the Wellness Force podcast, one or multiple times, you can see that there is a lot of behind the scenes going on with pretty bows and packages that make people purchase products, which is essentially like buying pigs wearing lipstick. [07:58] Sedation by News Media So now that you understand what's really going on with food, you can go to wellnessforce.com and search food or real food. We have a search bar on the homepage. Start learning more about how to protect yourself from the way that society tries to sedate you with food. It's much, much more than just what you're putting in your mouth. Now let's move on to the second piece of how society is designed to sedate men and women. And that is the news media. Now this is huge because the news media has a narrative that works to sedate us 24/7/365. And it does it by the vehicle of fear. And fear is really false evidence appearing real. Think about that. If it's false, if it's evident, the news media can make it appear real. And by they, I mean Rupert Murdoch and the six companies that run the entire media network for the entire United States and the world. You can Wikipedia this. [08:57] Breaking Down the Mainstream Narrative This is not conspiracy theory. Here's what happens. And I'm sure you're already feeling it or maybe you sent this to somebody who's already felt it and that's why you're here with us. But there are people that as soon as they find out, there's a narrative like this, that goes against the mainstream narrative, they like to label you and I, "conspiracy theorists." I say that with huge air quotes, but it's not a conspiracy theory. It's right out there. Do that basic DuckDuckGo search or Brave. And you will see that the media, the global media is run by six oligopolies, six conglomerates who all get paid billions and billions of dollars every single year in advertising fees. And you won't have to guess too far to know who their largest client is. It's big food and big pharma. It doesn't come as a surprise. [09:46] Selling the Solution to All Your Fears I think we all feel this on some level, but when you see what Joe Rogan is posting recently on Instagram, where Pfizer was the main prime sponsor on the majority of MSNBC, CNBC, all the different sporting events brought to you by Pfizer. Can you guys connect the dots? Look, I'm not here to say you should not ever have intervention from pharmacology. Even life insurance, right? I'm not here to say that that insurance is bad or we don't need to demonize entire industries. But I think everything has a time and a place. With your heart and with your intuition, notice that baked into every single commercial and every single piece of media propaganda out there, it is for you to be afraid. But what I have to sell you as a pharmaceutical company or an insurance company, it's the solution to all your fears, isn't it? Look at Viagra. [10:38] Hospitals Are a For-Profit Enterprise Oh, you're going to break up with your wife. No, just take this pill. Look at car insurance. Save a bundle with Geico, the little lizard that tries to make you buy insurance. And then of course, when they get you on the phone, they're actually going to upsell you for insurance that you don't need. But the worst of them all is health insurance. Companies that provide health insurance the way that it's tied into the medical industrial complex and the pharmaceutical and the wards that run hospitals. Just so you know, hospitals are a for-profit enterprise. Hospitals are not non-profit. Think about health insurance. The greatest health insurance we ever have is the belief in our own self, not an exterior company that can somehow provide us a solution. And again, there's a time and a place for medicines. I'm not here to demonize medicine. I think medicine has strayed very far from how it started. [11:29] Our Broken Healthcare System But if you look at the original symbol with the staff and the snakes right on top, it says, do no harm. Do no harm. Well, that is not the case. The majority of medicine out there has its own interest at the forefront and the patient in the backseat. It's a broken system, which is another podcast we can go into. And you can actually look at the podcast with Dr. Zach Bush, which is episode 345 or Dr. William Li, many of the physicians we've had on the show. This major news media, the fear narrative of Rupert Murdoch and the six media companies that basically run the planet, especially in the USA. How do those companies use fear to make us feel small so that we get sedated only when we buy their stuff that we will quote, be safe, or at least that's what they tell us? [12:17] Buying Out of Fear Ponder that question. How many times in your life, if you really tune in, have you bought something out of fear? I know I have. We've all done it. Oh my gosh. I got to get this supplement because it's going to make me live longer. Oh my God, I got to buy this fill-in-the-blank to give me blank because I'm not good enough or I'm not safe enough where I am. I just want you to know that there is truth and honesty in sales. Everything that I sell is honest. I believe in the BREATHE: Breath and Wellness program. From my heart, I believe in the offerings that we have for our community. I believe in the Freedom Accelerator Mentorship, because I do them with clients in groups all day long. And so the people in our community, I believe in our sponsors, Cured and Force of Nature and Paleovalley and Organifi. [13:00] Money is Energy All these amazingly organically grown, organically made products. Here is the key to breaking out of sedation when it comes to buying supplements or buying things that you really don't need. Just know when something's organic and people actually care about the planet, they're giving back to the planet. They're taking care of Mother Earth. We can take care of them with our money, right? Because money is energy. So wrapping a bow on this second category of sedation, the fear news media. You need to check yourself before you wreck yourself. I think it was a rap song by Busta Rhymes or Wreckx-n-Effect. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. So check yourself if you're watching the news media, either on your phone or Instagram or Facebook or television. I'm not here to tell you what to do, but tune in. If you feel stressed, if you feel less love for yourself after you watch the news media, it is truly as simple as putting it down, turning it off, and stop watching the news. [13:58] The Agenda to Keep People Silent It's actually quite that simple. Just stop watching the news. Stop it. Stop it. Now the sedation has already been talked about, so feel into this one a little bit more. We've already talked about how food keeps you sedated. We've talked about how people are easier to divide and control when you're sedated on many podcast, and specifically through the news media, which is number two. Well, when you're in fear, you're much easier to be divided and conquered. I'm not going to get into it now, but if you look at the history of mask-wearing in ancient Egypt and Africa, many continents, mask-wearing was always used to sedate people and to keep people silent. And I believe that is exactly what's going on right now. So this brings us to our third point. If you are watching something, you are consuming something from a media perspective, whether it's Facebook, Instagram, or even a podcast. I advise you to take a deep breath, do a basic search on news media corruption. [14:53] The News Media Corruption Specifically, there is one video that I'm going to link here in the show notes. And all these newscasters across the entire United States at the same time, on the same day that are all owned by the same conglomerates, they all said, "This is a danger to our democracy." It is going to put chills on your neck, my friend. It is going to freak you out. You'll probably never watch the news again and good. Make sure you go to the blog here for this Solocast. After hearing it, this incredibly terrible phrase, this is incredibly dangerous to our democracy. It's like robots. Make up your own choice. Again, I'm not here to tell you what to do. Stop watching the news media immediately. If you care for your health, if you care for your family, if you don't want to be sedated, put down the news media. It is poisoning you. [15:39] How Pornography is Harming Us It is subtly making you sick by keeping you in fear. Now, let's talk about the third face of sedation. We talked about how food makes you sick and the media makes you sick and sedated. And the next one is big for all of us, especially for men and it's pornography. And this is a polarizing topic, but pornography is something that 24/7/365 is available on every device. Available for any 9, 10, 11, 12, 13-year-old boy or girl to watch. And when you're addicted to pornography, and I speak from my own past experience on this, you will sedate the very life force energy that creates life inside of you. Play that back again. You will sedate the very life force energy that creates life inside of you. And this is the greatest tragedy that we are facing right now as a society, as parents. Pornography is not something to be used as a replacement for true sex and life force energy. [16:30] How Pornography Feeds On Our Energy Pornography is something that has been used as a tool to disconnect people from themselves. Same with prostitution. I'm not here to say that prostitution is right or wrong. You can make up your own choice on that, but there is a close neighbor of pornography and prostitution. They feed on the same energy and the energy is that you're not enough. You can't get what you need. You can't get fulfilled and nourished with your own value, so you have to actually pay for it with money or pay for it with your soul. Subtly pornography plants negative mental seeds. You don't have what it takes to get a real partner or to have a true sexual connection. Or maybe you got hooked on this stuff when you were young, just like me, right? It starts with Playboy. Then it turns into Penthouse. Next Hustler. Then it goes to the wavy lines on the cable TV, and then you try to point out a private part or a breast or something. [17:18] How Pornography Hooks into the Limbic System And, oh my God, there it is. So it starts out just like leading lambs to slaughter in Pinocchio. When all the kids went to the island, pornography starts out the same way. Nice and easy, and then it goes real south real fast, whether it's on a tablet or a phone or computer, these sites, once they hook into the limbic system of young men, look out because it's like feeding candy to a child, 24/7/365. Ponder this, sex is one of the most powerful energies known to this planet, gifted to us by great spirit. And it is an absolute atrocity that we allow this pornography to be consumed all day long in every country in every household. I'll tell you what, for all the parents listening, I almost guarantee that your child has most likely, already seen it. Some of the most disgusting things you could ever imagine. [18:07] The Dark, Demonic Energy of the Porn Industry And what does this do to us? How does this normalize gender dysphoria and sexual orientation confusion? How does pornography diminish the flame of life force energy inside of all beings? Well, it's quite simple because it teaches that a false sense of sexuality is real. And you can take that to the bank and cash it because pornography is not real. Porn is mental masturbation that turns into physical masturbation to have some kind of false sexual flame identified as the real thing. And this is a very sinister force, this pornography. If you look at many people that are involved in the industry, most are drug addicts, many commit suicide. There's a dark, demonic energy around the entire adult film industry and in many adult films. By the way, maybe back in the day before it became incredibly corrupted by dark energy and demonic forces, maybe there was some great erotic art and you know what? [18:57] Following Your Heart's Wisdom Maybe now there still is some great, incredible erotic art as well. I'm not here to say that erotic art done in a tasteful way is bad. Actually, I think it can really help people, but that is 1% of 1%, right? The elephant in the room, no one wants to photograph it. No one wants to talk about it, but it's right there on your child's phone. And this is what needs attention. This is what sedates us. And it starts out in childhood. There is a solution to everything that I've talked about today, whether it's food, whether it's news media, whether it's pornography. The last one is the thoughts that you think. This is what needs the most attention. And again, this starts out in childhood. Your heart's wisdom knows to turn off the TV and to turn off the news media. Your heart's wisdom knows to buy foods that are from Mother Earth, unadulterated, unprocessed, unhomogenized. [19:47] The Antidote to Sedation Your heart's wisdom knows that the antidote to sedation is turning into the heart's wisdom. And that is the gift that we all get to receive today. But how do you do this? How do you transform your thoughts from a seed of negativity to a mighty oak tree of positivity? It can almost feel like changing a circle into a square depending on your childhood and what you've been through. Well, this is the fourth phase. Your thoughts become things. So the first part of the transformation with your thoughts starts with the awareness of exactly how much or how far you want to transform. Look, many of us get caught up into zero or 100 where we buy into the manufactured shame economy that tells us we should always want to be a caterpillar that turns into a butterfly and accepting anything less about our desire for transformation means that we're lazy or we don't have ambition. [20:36] What is Success? But what if ambition was not always directly tied to success? What if success was a lot more nuanced and complicated? So many people think of success as this bank account with seven figures or more, but isn't success also a healthy body and a healthy mind that allows you to communicate with family members or friends that you love. What if success was essentially a state of being combined with the honoring of the mystery of life, where we can ascribe to the fact that we choose our parents, therefore we choose our destiny and the recipe for success and transformation can either come from pain or pleasure, from fear or from love. You'll get there from A to B, start to finish, no matter what. We're all going to die. So the most enjoyable and rewarding experience that you know deep down in your heart's intuition should always be the guiding light. [21:25] Building Greater Awareness, Higher Consciousness It should always be the North Star for any kind of achievement or journey discovery. It's the gift that God gave you called life. And what happens is we have this default mode network in our brain and the default mode network is literally what is scanning for danger when we're completing a singular task. And so, depending on what level of awareness you have, if you've done the emotional inventory practice that I've talked about on many shows, I will link that in the show notes here. If you've never really done any self-awareness practice, this is how you escape the negative thoughts, the negativity bias, the negativity force feed that is being stuffed down your throats like you're a duck and they're going to harvest your liver for foie gras. That's how serious it is right now. Yes, you cannot generate the energy that you don't have without consequences, both short-term and long-term to the mental and physical self. [22:17] The Wisdom Inside Us All But you can choose to generate the energy regardless of how you feel using caffeine or supplementation temporarily and infrequently. But the wisdom inside of all of us connected to the intelligence that we are will surely give us loud signals if we're too out of alignment and we're using caffeine, drugs or stimulants or shopping food porn, social media, workaholism, addiction to stress, or any other mechanism that disassociates the head from the heart. The price is going to be paid no matter what we choose to do, but the price that is paid living in alignment with restoring one's energy reserves before putting out maximum energy, that's never going to escape us as human beings. How do we course correct in this fourth phase of understanding how we are sedated? What can we do to adjust? How do we do things in life that actually make us happy? [23:09] Taking an Emotional Inventory Because when we're focused on what makes us happy, everything that's pulling us away from that will bubble up to the surface. And so to be aware of how you truly feel and to have an emotional inventory process where you understand that your life is on purpose, you understand who you are as a person, you understand your value in the world. If you are not clear on your life's purpose and you are not clear on what you want to create in the world, you are completely left wide open to that fourth phase of sedation. And that actually is the negative thoughts, those seeds of negativity, they never ever grow into a tree. They actually turn into weeds and then you start subconsciously gathering the evidence that you're not enough, and that you're not really worthy of your purpose. I want you to know that's not the truth. The truth of who you are, and the antidote to this fourth phase of sedation, was actually perfectly said by Alan Watts. Alan Watts asked his students what makes you itch? [24:09] What Makes You Itch? What was it that if money was no option, you would do, you would love to do? Well, then go do that. Otherwise, if you do something just for money, you will chase it for your whole life, and you'll be hinged upon the next moment where everything might be better or when I can have this much money or when I can just take off this much time, but it's all an empty vacuum begging for closure. And the only thing that nature hates more than a vacuum is a soul that has disconnected from itself. And by hate, I just mean the absence of love. So let me rephrase. I don't think the universe hates anything, but I do think that the universe wants to experience itself with the absence of love. The biggest barometer for all of us when we are not loving or for when we are out of love is when we begin to experience hatred and fear within ourselves. Take a deep breath. [24:59] The Power of Breath Ah, and if you're a student, if you're with us in the community for the BREATHE: Breath and Wellness program, then you know the power of the breath is something that no one can ever take away from you. Once you learn how to breathe properly, how to breathe in a circle, how to breathe in a box, how to do your breath-hold retentions, how to hold your energy locks, how to do your different cyclical and box breathing for your acute stressors, how to pull yourself out of the default mode network. You are not able to be sedated. The opposite of depression is expression. The opposite of anxiety is you here in this current moment. That's where everything's happening anyways. Can you feel it? I'm here with you right now know. We're here together right now. [25:53] Know Thyself You just let that be enough. And so take six more deep breaths as I say goodbye for today. And I'm going to give you an action, an inspired action to take. You now have the biggest barometer to know when you are not loving, when you experience hatred or fear within yourself, which that barometer will immediately light up when you experience one of the four ways that society sedates you, with food, with news media, with pornography, and with the thoughts that you think about yourself. Know thyself. It's written on the temple at the Apollo. Know thyself. Head over to breathwork.io. Use the code PODCAST25. It's my gift to you. This is a three week program. I'm so excited to guide you for the next 21 days, so you can actually use your breath to start being friends with your ego, understanding the parts of yourself that you still are holding onto with shame or judgment or loathing. [26:55] Transform Your Energy Through Breath Those aren't true either, but you must experience them right. Energy that is not transmuted will sit still and no energy can be created. It can only be transformed. Transform this energy because the first part of transformation starts with the awareness of exactly how far you want to transform. I don't care who you are, where you've been. This is an opportunity. And I want to invite you with my open arms. It took me three years to build this program. I traveled around the world. I spent 30 days in Thailand crying and actually throwing up a couple times, doing the most deep practices you can ever imagine. And I brought back the gems. I brought back a three-week process where you can use your own breath to clear your stress. Breathwork.io, the code is PODCAST25. It's 25% off. It's my gift to you.

Time for another head of spiritual dub with your host Brandon Handley. Let's get right into today's episode. Brandon Handley 0:41 Hey there spiritual dope. We are on here today with Carrie hummingbird, Soul guide and host of soul nectar show she's number one International Best Selling Author of the second wave transcending the human drama and the award winning best selling book, awakening to me one woman's journey to self love, which describes the early years her her spiritual awakening, Miss hummingbird inspires people to lead their lives wide awake with an authentic, passionate purpose that positively impacts others, she catalyzes miles just to transform life challenges into gifts of wisdom.

I think everybody wants that right? Like, do not pass go, just you know straight to the end. Guys pretty funny, you said you know, you're gonna you're gonna let intuition guide. And that's really how we kind of start this whole thing off every time here. And the idea is, you know, somebody out there tune in today is tune in to hear what source is sending through you, since we're, you know, vehicles of Source Energy, right? What what is what's coming through you today that that listener needs to hear Kerri Hummingbird 2:02 what's coming through loud and clear is slow down, really slow down, slow down, restrain, get still get in nature, put your feet on the earth, put your hand over your heart, the other hand over your belly, and just really be present with this vehicle that we most of us ride. Like it's just a bucking bronco. And we just need to actually be gentle with this, this animals as being that we are in the integration of our spirit with this, this animal, basically, you know, it's an animal. And a lot of times, we're kind of mean to our animals, you know, we don't necessarily feed it that well or take good care of it, we kind of expected to work 12 hour days, and then just be perky at night to have fun. Oh, so we slow down, the things are so hectic. And you know, COVID couldn't even slow us down. It's kind of amazing how even COVID didn't slow us down because we're right back at it, you know, and we need to really heat that heat that message because really what happens is like we get into connection with some deeper vibratory patterns on the planet, when we slow down, we get connected with the heartbeat of this mother that we all share this Mother Earth. And when we get connected with that heartbeat, and that rhythm of the Earth, actually, things are way less struggle. It's way less effort connected from that heartbeat space, that rhythm of the earth. Things can get easier. Life gets easier. Brandon Handley 3:40 Right? I love the idea of kind of for you sounds like there's almost two heartbeat synchronizations right, first of all, kind of get get in sync with your own heart. What is it a HeartMath Institute, which I think has some really great work done with it. And then identifying Earth as though it were a living being as well. And then kind of getting your rhythm in sync with that. Is that kind of which is that kind of what you're saying? Kerri Hummingbird 4:15 Yeah, absolutely is set really as if it it is a living being you know, I think most people think the Earth is a floor and they walk around on it. But the Earth is a living breathing being and trees are living breathing beings and plants and animals and and including us. And we have this we have these beautiful technologies, right like we're we're on technology right now. It lets us have a conversation from wherever you are to wherever I am, could be anywhere around the entire world, people could be listening. That is so amazing as such a great product of the mind. And we're listening from a body from a body that has a heartbeat that has lungs that has muscle souls that has senses, you know, awarenesses when we allow ourselves to get out of our minds and into the body, that's actually where the real game is, you know, a lot of people, including my son, you know, both of my sons, especially my younger son, they love the computer games, like, just let me play computer games all day long, I'm happy, they'll just stay in my room and play computer games. And I keep trying to tell them, you know, that's really interesting in your mind, but there's actually like, some really trippy stuff that happens when you get off the computer and get in deeply into your human experience. And into the earth experience. There's some super mystical, amazing stuff that happens in that process that really blows it out of the water in terms of what's more amazing. Brandon Handley 5:53 What's an example that you'd like to use for them? Kerri Hummingbird 5:57 Oh, yeah, I love this one that I'm thinking about this time that I was in training with the power path School of shamanism. And I was on a retreat, three days in the woods, you know, no, no food, no brain oriented things by myself with a 10 and some water. And I got bored after the first day, you know, the end of the first day, and I'm like, Okay, what am I going to do now? There's no books to read. There's no, there's nothing brain oriented. I'd already done all the things I set up the campsite, I made my medicine wheel. I mean, I did everything. So now what I did just be so I went and stood up on this rock, I found this rock. And it was like a stage because it was really big. I went up and sat stood up on the stage. And I started practicing Healing Songs. Because in this program, we learned how to sing Healing Songs, like from the jungle and Icaros they call them. So I'm up on there singing the Icaros. And in this acre, I was calling in support like, you know, Bear COME TO ME NOW and Firefly coming to, you know, whatever, I could think of singing a song. And at the end of several verses, I got this little giggle and I thought, you know, I'm gonna innovate hummingbird. And is the moment I started singing in Hummingbird, an actual hummingbird flew through the forest, and hovered right in front of my third eye, about 12 inches away from my third eye. And it stayed there. As my eyes got huge, Brandon Handley 7:36 some real snow. Like, way, like Alright, what else? Can we you know, did you What else did you call in? Kerri Hummingbird 7:43 conjuring up? So, I mean, I basically was like, so in other words, you come when I call and it nodded. And then it flew away. Awesome. Brandon Handley 7:53 That's pretty intense, for sure. Um, it's a hard sell on a couple of boys in the video games, right? What is my guess? Well, again, I think that that's super impactful. They're just not there yet. Right. And I think that that's part of the challenge is, you know, that growth into recognizing just how powerful an experience like that can be. When you're in tune sounds like when you're in tune with the way you were, in that moment, kind of with your heart and the Earth's vibration as well. Kerri Hummingbird 8:29 Yeah, it's it's a, it's a slowing down. Now. I don't, I don't judge my kids. I mean, they're young, right. And I gotta tell you, my mind was filled up when I was their age. I, I'm not sure there was any space, there was a rock concert going on inside my head. You know, like, all the time. It was so busy and so loud. And I remember I used to have to sit at stoplights. And just to deal with the fact that there was a stoplight. I had to count, like to start counting 1002 1003 1004 Just to get through the fact that I had to wait at the stoplight. That's how impatient I was. Brandon Handley 9:08 I get it, right. I know that. Geez. I used to drive so fast and reckless. Right? Like I just kind of go anywhere I could as fast as I could traffic, weaving in and out doing whatever. Somebody's slowing down and be like, ah, freaking out. Right? Why is this? And now just like whatever man, you know? Yeah, sure. You know, it's it's, it's, we're slowing down. And that's just that's just what we're doing here right now. Being okay with it. But I totally I totally get it. So let's let's walk through right like kind of how you even found yourself in this space, because I'm sure that you weren't always calling hummingbirds to your to your third eye. All right. So let's let's get to it. Let's let's start off kind of a little bit in the beginning. You know, you're you're deep into spirituality space right now. You're doing Sam Stick you're doing. I'd last time you and I had a quick conversation. You're doing plant medicine, you've got a lot going on, who, you know, who were you before? How did you fall into spirituality? Because that's usually my experience is like most people just kind of like, oh, there it is. Right? And then, you know, kind of rolling into the next piece. And then you know, what's happening now? What's happening now? Kerri Hummingbird 10:24 Yeah, so Well, I, I was always spending time I was 15, a teenager, I was in psychotherapy, because I was, you know, my parents were very concerned that I was going to have mental challenges because I didn't really rocky early beginning, in my life, the first five years of my life were a little traumatic, between my natural father and my mother's first choice of father who was a violent drunk. And, you know, so the trauma of that experience, and anybody who's listening who's had a similar experience, my heart just goes out to you, because I know how long it's taken me to get safe in my body from that experience, but I was doing psychotherapy to kind of, you know, work on fixing me because I had big emotional swings. And, you know, I kind of prone to some wild behavior, which were all signs of that early trauma, you know, from psycho therapies point of view. So I was trying to do it that way from the mind. And it was okay. I mean, I got some coping skills. But when I became a mother at 30, everything just flew out the window, you know, I was immersed in a darkness that I can't even explain, but it was profound, you know, and struggling to be happy, I wanted to be happy I wanted a child, that was completely my choice, I wanted to have a baby. And I was, I was actually really upset that I was so upset, you know, because I really wanted to have this experience. And when it didn't work out that way, I was in deeper psychotherapy. And then they put me on some pills, because, you know, that's sort of the Western medical solution as well just stop feeling that so here's some pills and make that go away. So I did that, you know, I kind of coped that way for a while. But what I finally realized was that there was a lot of limitation in the dynamic between me and my spouse, because we were playing very traditional roles. And that wasn't working out for me, you know, when I became a mother, those traditional roles, like, they didn't work anymore. When I'm saying that, I mean, like, you know, the whole knight in shining armor thing, you know, I really liked that I liked having that knight in shining armor, and I liked sort of being the Maiden in distress. But when you're the mother, that doesn't fly very well, you know, because somebody has got to take care of the baby. And that was me, you know, that was my job. I mean, I was the one with the breast milk. So you know, it's kind of my job, you know, to take care of this baby. And I couldn't just fall apart, you know, the way I had previously in my life, or run away or get away from it somehow. So that was the beginning of learning how to stay in the conversation and learning how to deepen within myself. And at that moment, what I actually needed was spirituality, I deeply, deeply, deeply needed spiritual connection, I needed to understand that it was okay to open to some bigger support, you know, it was okay to open myself and I and I was subconsciously doing that because I was an artist. So it was always outside painting. So in some way, some part of me knew you need to be outside, you need to be in nature. And I spent hours out there painting, because I just needed to get out and get connected. I didn't even understand what I was doing. I just was kind of doing it. But I remember I used to walk the baby, I take these long walks, because he was so colicky our first child who took the brunt of our synthesis of polarity for a child took the brunt of all that. And I remember walking him, you know, on around the neighborhood. And I would always walk by this center for spiritual enlightenment. And my body would come to a halt. And my head would turn was look at I would feel a little yearning, like, I think I need to go in there. And then I would have a million reasons why I shouldn't namely, because my partner didn't believe in all that. And if I spent money on that, it'd be an argument is what I would turn away from it and keep walking. Right? So that was also just a big part of my journey. So those motherhood really called me up, you know, it called me up to make a stand. And it took me a while to make it. It didn't actually make that stand until I was my oldest child was going into middle school. And I finally things got bad enough meaning that I was I was really self abusing by holding myself back from my power and my Wisdom in my knowing and trying to fit into that tiny little box that society had made for me of the maiden. And it wasn't working. So I ended up leaving him and heading out on my own and opening to the great mystery. And pretty soon found a teacher that helped me to start to own my feminine and own the fact that whoa, I'm not small and skinny. I'm like, big and expansive. I have this thing called intuition. That's telling me things that he's not getting. I am emotional, because I'm designed that way. And feeling those emotions is actually what gives me the knowledge, the wisdom I need inside to cope with situations. So there is just all this unfolding that happened over the last decade, that has been amazing and tremendous, and has guided me to heal any places where I was holding blame for him, because it wasn't his fault that I was having an awakening. Brandon Handley 16:04 Yeah, a lot to unpack there. But I mean, you know, a big part of it, right is when the depression state right, or like we getting the medicated thing, when they've seen Western medicine, like you're saying, it's just like, to give you this thing to help you get rid of it as really, you're just cutting off a piece of your own internal guidance, right. And again, that's just my perception was that the way that you were feeling like when you when you kind of got that medication there was like, it's isolation of feelings, or almost like a, like a soft knocking at the door that you just couldn't answer. Kerri Hummingbird 16:48 You know, for me, I was with the birth of my child, I was drowning in my emotions, and my depression, I was seeing visions of big holes in the floor, like I saw this vision in the shower of a big dark hole opening up in the middle of the floor, like going somewhere in other regions, right. So I was having wild impulses. So for me, it was actually helpful at first to take the edge off that extreme experience. So that I could provide for my child because I needed to be present, right, I needed to be able to be a safe place for this baby. So I had to be on that, I think at first, only because I did not have the training before my motherhood and how to handle my emotions. Now had I been trained earlier, and how to channel my emotional experience, and how to move through waves of emotion while staying grounded and present. And being a safe place. For others. Even though I'm experiencing my emotions, that would have been a completely different experience. And I probably wouldn't have broken down the way I did. Okay, real quick. And if I'd done some healing to Brandon Handley 17:56 you real quickly, before we move on from that, right? What are some of those tools that if you had had prior to or some of that knowledge, if you're able to share it? That would have been beneficial? Right, that, you know, looking back said, hey, you know, just would have would have been nicer, no sooner? Kerri Hummingbird 18:15 Yeah, like. I really think that being aware that emotions are a sign that something's out of balance, instead of a sign that you're crazy or broken. Number one, that would have been really great to know that. And because I didn't know that I of course, wanted to suppress my emotions, because I didn't want to be crazy and broken. So I think that's a judgment that collectively as a society, we could start unwinding and untangling that to make emotions normal. And to help each other to feel them. So that's on a bigger level, but at the at the individual level. You know, just listen to my words and hear me when I say you're not broken and crazy, if you have emotions, you're human. And whenever I'm having them now, a lot of times what I'll do is hold myself, so put my hand over my heart, a hand over my belly. If I'm feeling grief, I'll let myself cry. And, and just until it passes, and even if I'm in a like situation where you're not supposed to cry. Like yesterday, I was at brunch with my mom and some big emotion came up because I was reading to her from her her profile, her jinkies profile, and I was having this huge realization about what a blessing she was for me in my life because she was this essence this energy that I needed. And I was reading to her and I was I looked at her and I said, Mom, I just I resented you so much for being exactly this, but this is your design and I just burst into tears. And that's okay with me. I think don't care anymore. If people see me crying, I don't, that is so genuine to cry with that realization and to share that moment with my mom, even though we're out in public at a restaurant. It's just, it's just so beautiful. And I don't judge it anymore. So I think like, feel your feelings. And if other people are uncomfortable with that, well, that's their job, that's their work to do is to get more comfortable with you expressing your feelings. And, you know, if you feel angry, that's one that I tried to, you know, to process without directing it at someone I really, I that's the only caveat I would have is express the emotion and just do your best not to express it at someone, you know, like, like, own that emotion is completely yours. Do your processing with it. For me with anger, I like to you know, I like to go ride off on some country road and just like roar, like a lion, you know, just like, get somewhere and just roar like I'm in the jungle because it's just energy. It's just like fire energy from the will center usually. And so you just need to kind of roar that crap out just like yeah, just like, Release the Kraken? Brandon Handley 21:10 No, that's a great one, right? I mean, it's just, it's just this kind of pent up energy that's gotten you feeling like one sort of way. And there's a way to release it. And I like what you're saying there not to release it at somebody, but to release it just in general. Kerri Hummingbird 21:25 Right? Yeah. And it's really hard for men to release anger. I had this client once, who was, um, he was probably like, six foot three, six foot four, big guy, but big teddy bear guy. But you know, he had anger. But he had repressed it all because he wasn't allowed to express his anger in front of his father, right, his father kind of had his thumb on him. And he also wasn't definitely not supposed to express anger at or in front of women. You know, that was just not cool. So when I was coaching him, I had to, I was like, well, you're gonna have to release that anger. So let's try the roar. You know, and he's wearing my house, you know, so he's, he's like, I can't even he couldn't even open his throat to do it. He, like literally couldn't do it. And so I did it for him. I said, I did it first. I was like, Okay, I'm going to do it. So you know, it's okay. And when he felt my grounded power with my own anger, that made it safe, actually, for him to feel his anger, because he knew I could handle it. And I think this is a big message for women. You know, if you want your guys to express their anger in a safe way, then you have to feel your anger and, and really own your anger. And let yourself express that so that you can become a safe place for anger to be communicated. You know, but if you're if you don't own your own anger, and you play that victim role on the triangle, you know, then then there's just no place for authenticity to happen in the relationship. Brandon Handley 22:55 Like it's a triangle, you're talking like the Drama Triangle, the Drama Triangle. Kerri Hummingbird 22:59 Oh, yeah, triangle disempowerment triangle. Brandon Handley 23:02 Got it. Very cool. It's funny. You're bringing up the anger bit, right? I'm going through this book right now. Bringing your shadow out of the dark, right. And I think I just got done doing anger, that the deal is we we all think it's like the bad thing. But again, to your point, if you go back to when you're talking about emotions, they're just showing you something about what you're what's happening. And I think even stronger cases is that we're generally not taught and it sounds like you know, you weren't taught to pay attention to your motion is easy, like, I'm not supposed to have this emotion. Case in point is like, you know, you're you've got your, your firstborn. You want to be happy. You can't figure out how to get happy then there's like this vicious like, kind of cycle of wire and I something's wrong with me, because I'm not happy in this situation. What's wrong with me? What's wrong with me? Right? And that's not it, right? Like, you're just feeling a certain way. And like you said, you're human. And as humans, we, one of the side effects or benefits, however, you want to take a look at it, we feel. And I think one of the worst worst things is we're not taught how to cope with them, like you were saying. And I think you know, getting getting getting that kind of lesson sooner rather than later is very important. Kerri Hummingbird 24:25 Yeah, and there's a lot of there's a lot of expectation that women place on themselves when they become mothers, like, huge expectations about being perfect and being loving all the time. And always being giving and always being nurturing and always, always, always, and that is an impossible standard to me, because you're a human being. And especially if you don't take care of yourself. I've seen so many women that they just sublimate themselves to the family. Then they bend over backwards doing things everything for everybody. And they get celebrated when they do that, by the way, too. So it reinforces the role of like surrendering yourself or everybody else in the family about yourself. And that actually sets a really bad role model. Because now you're saying to everybody, you know, just surrender yourself completely to everybody else. And don't, don't worry about what's good for you, or to even take care of your own body. And, you know, even get the exercise you need, or even like, either right meals that you need, or get the emotional support that you need, like, completely, leave yourself behind and throw yourself under the bus to be like this corporate employee and go out there and do right You because You love your replicate the model. So I think it's better and it's brave and courageous. And you definitely can take a lot of flack for it. But for those moms who feel courageous, is to start stepping out of those expectations, like, actually get clear, what is a good example? Like, what would be a healthy way for me to live? And then what do I want to teach my kids? Like? How do I want to model healthy behavior, and self care for my kids, and not just what to say it, and then do something else, but actually stick by it, which means you have to have boundaries, and then that teach healthy boundaries to the kids to by your example. And it's when we won't do those things out of fear of not belonging, or being rejected or being criticized? Those are the things that hold us back is that fear? So I think, you know, one of the major realizations I've had about this whole paradigm is how it's a system. So our family systems are based on these expectations of each other, like the knight in shining armor, and I'm going to be the damsel in distress, and you're just going to rescue me, however, then I become a mother. And that just throws the whole thing out the wash, you know, it's like, well, that doesn't work anymore. And now there's this question of, well, how am I getting nourished? Right? And I've seen women all over the map with how they handle that disparity between being a maid and where everything was being rescued for you, and being a mother where you have to do everything. It's like, how do you navigate that? And then what is, you know, what's the masculine in the picture doing? You know? Because, like, how do you react to that? So there's, there's just so much just so juicy in that conversation of that, like, how we each choose to show up and be full humans, in the family, I think is like the answer from our hearts, you know, taking a spiritual journey, looking at our own shadows, as you were talking about owning those shadows, not stepping over anything. If anger comes up, anger is there. If resentment comes up resentments, they're seeing what that has to share with you. You know, for me, whenever resentment came up, it was telling me, Carrie, you're not taking care of yourself. You're not resourced. You needed to slow down and be resourceful. Brandon Handley 27:58 That makes sense, right? Because you're probably seeing everybody else's fully being taken care of, and getting everything that they need. And you're like, What the hell, right? And he starts to resent all that. That's simply because you're, you've given everything to everybody else, but you haven't given anything to yourself. In a scenario like that. D, you know, so the Thanks for Thanks for you know, talking, I guess about a couple of tools to write about things that you could use right? Before? Before before. Before time's right. And then, you know, so you're walking, you're doing your walks, and you're going past the US on past, like, your spirituality place. Did you ever step into that spirituality? Place? Or is Kerri Hummingbird 28:43 it never, I never went in. And I just, I must have stopped there, like, I know, 2030 times. And I was standing freeze and just look at it, even though it was getting more and more desperate, I would just look at you know, and I wouldn't go in, it was crazy that I wouldn't go in there. Brandon Handley 29:01 And you're talking about, you know, kind of this the stand that you took at a certain point. And you also talk about like all these other fears and stigmas about like the society, how they're going to look at you for whatever it is you do. I imagine there was a bit of that as you went through the divorce process. I don't know if that's anything you feel like sharing as part of this process that you went through? Kerri Hummingbird 29:23 Yeah, absolutely. Of course, everybody in my, in my connection, thought it was insane for leaving my husband because on the outside, it looked awesome. You know, I mean, it looked like I was getting everything I wanted, right? I had somebody that liked to party and have fun and go on vacations and we had a nice house and spent money but we even built me a studio. So you know, like an art studio so I could do my art. Like, I looked like I was just getting it all you know, and then nobody can understand. They're like, why are you leaving this guy? And it was because I I was just in my cage. Like there was this cage for me an elephant dictation in our relationship. And I was also up against my own edges. And I didn't have the tools to process that. With psychotherapy, I was still going to psychotherapy, but it was not, it wasn't hitting the mark, like, there's a depth to spirituality that I found is able to really heal, things that are operating that are totally influencing your decisions in your perceptions, but you don't even know it until you get deep enough. And the mind is not deep enough. So trying to solve it by talking about it isn't really deep enough to go. So a lot of the ways that I was looking at him, a lot of the dynamics that were playing out, were part of my soul's curriculum, it was calling me up to speak my truth. It was calling me up to honor myself, it was calling me up to trust my intuition. And, you know, an almost all the arguments we had were all about those things, you know, it'd be him challenging my intuition, it'd be him challenging my honor to be him challenging, you know, he would just poke poke, poke, poke poke at me, and, and it wasn't able to stand my ground, you know, and I was being called up to stand my ground. So if we look at the bigger picture of the evolution of humanity, we can see that the last, you know, several 1000 years has been mostly guided by the masculine energy, and some would say the imbalance, masculine energy, that patriarchal energy, which is sort of suppressing women's intuition and suppressing the feminine and all of us, really, you know, because that feminine and masculine, they live in all of us, no matter what body we have. So now is the time where we're waking that wild, feminine back up, and this is men, women, whatever gender you are, that feminine, that wild, feminine is being woken back up, and for anybody who's like delivered a baby, Ben, a mother in that capacity, it's really wild, the way it wakes up. It's like, it's like, you know, fierce Mama Bear waking up. And that energy had to come through me. But I was always conflict avoidance. So I wanted to be a pleaser, I liked being the golden daughter, I liked being daddy's girl. And here, I was being called up by the shadows to say, you're not daddy's girl, you're a grown ass woman, you're a mom, you need to stand in your power you need if you don't agree, you need to say you don't agree. If you know, there's another way, you need to say, you know, there's no another way. And you need to hold that even if there's no evidence to support you, you know, from the mind. So that's what I the initiation I was being called toward. And I was too chicken, you know, to do it at the time in that relationship, or just didn't have the tools really, to make that leap? Brandon Handley 32:49 It makes sense, right? I mean, you've got a lot of these these other spaces in places that were taught, right, and you're trying to think you have these discussions from the mind, and you're getting them from the heart and the gut. Versus and there's really, you know, it's hard to substantiate that. Right. And, and here, he is challenging all that and a loving relationship. We're just kind of supposed to trust each other out. Right. And that can be challenged, too. So you're, you're you're stuck in your cage, like you said, and then you know, you just decided to stand in your power and make the break. Right. I mean, that was more for the benefit of all parties involved, right? As far as I can tell. And it was time for you to just kind of break free of that paradigm. Kerri Hummingbird 33:38 Yeah, because it wasn't, it wasn't loosening up, you know, it was like getting more and more intense to the place where I was having. I mean, I'd always had a history of having some suicidal ideations, but those got very strong during that period, I had tons of self loathing, I was having nightmares, that would wake me up in the middle of the night with sweats, I was crying all the time, I'd like lock myself in my office, because I worked at home and I would just cry in there. So I knew like this is not whatever this is, is not working. And it's not good for any of us. And admittedly, during that time, for the last two years of our relationship, my self loathing got to the place where I started seeking validation outside of our marriage. So I started having affairs, and you know, short live, like one night or whatever, but it was like that need for some acceptance from some somebody who liked me just the way I was, instead of wanting me to be totally different. So that was, yeah, I was like, I can't go on like that, because that's not at the core of me that wasn't resonating with my integrity, and the person I am inside. So I could see the only reason I was doing that behavior was because of deep deep pain. And if that couldn't be healed through all the work that I've done for 20 years in psychotherapy, and some of the work we've done for a few years in couples therapy Then I had to move on. I mean, there just was I had to make a decision for the benefit of my kids and myself. Brandon Handley 35:07 And look, it makes sense. Right? You were you were? I think you'd set it up, you know, earlier up against it. All right, I would guess the edges. And you weren't seeing any way out. Right. And I think you would have been operating from a severe place of, you know, like claustrophobic, right? Just kind of lashing out just like just anything else. And you had to get out and do what was right for everybody. And it sounds like, it sounds like you did, right. So I mean, you make the break. And now Now though, like, I mean, look, you're, you're in this space, you've got your courses and books. He's got some seminars, you've got a thing coming up at the end of October, we were talking about the beginning here, which will pass by the time this gets released. But I mean, let's talk about, you know, kind of this journey, how it's led you into this spirituality where you said, you know, there's more depth in here than just from the mind, just pray in the spiritual space, love to hear, you know, a little bit more about that, and, and how you're leading from a spiritual place, spiritual place. Kerri Hummingbird 36:15 Yeah, so I think that the biggest decision, the biggest thing that's helped my personal growth in a spiritual path has been my heart stop, like when I had that realization that I don't ever want to be here anymore. And I've got these kids, and I've got to stay for them. That was my heart stop. So it was like, alright, that I have to change whatever it is that needs changing, that's up to me, I've got to take responsibility for that. So I can stay on the planet. So a lot of people don't necessarily have that heart of a stop. But I, it was pretty intense. So I knew that I had to do something. So that level of commitment was there. And that whenever anybody has that level of commitment, then the spiritual growth can be tremendous. Like, it's amazing how much can happen in a short period of time. So my journey started 10 years ago, and this part of my journey started 10 years ago, with my decision to leave and my decision to trust this spirit sign that I got that showed me that was the end of the rope. That's it. I followed that I had no idea was afraid, of course, you know, how am I going to support myself? I haven't really worked full time for a long time. I'm a mom, how are we going to work this out? And I just had to take the journey, you know, and I haven't done it perfectly. You know, I've made a lot of mistakes. I've especially when I started messengering. And I started writing my books, I was pretty much called right away to start writing my book that that awakening to me book was started, like within six months of my divorce, actually, like before the divorce was final it started. So that was immediate, like the messenger part of me woke up right after I left. So and then the spiritual aspect just like took off. I mean, I've had mentors that say, my early mentors, they were like, we don't even know who you are anymore. Like you just went like this. You just wow. Like, Pam, you know. And it's that I think it's that passion, that realization of the buck stops with me. Like, no one can save me, but me. So if I want to be here for my kids, I have got to make the choice to heal, and do it now. And that means I've got to humble myself. I've got to ask for help. I got to realize there's a thing or two I don't know, even though I've been a psychotherapy for 20 years, I mean, geez, I don't know something like something should work by now. But, but the thing is, it wasn't a waste. You know, all that time I spent navigating my thought tunnels is like it started clicking when I started combining it with the spirituality when I started combining it with energy healing and ancestral healing and early childhood healing and re parenting myself and all these modalities I've been practicing and learning for the last 10 years. It all clicked, it was like not time wasted. It was just time buffered, it was just buffered wisdom until I was ready to claim it. Right, like Brandon Handley 39:01 when you're watching a video and it's just like all waiting. And it's like spinning and spinning and spinning. And then it finally just plays and since it's like the show you've been waiting for. And I love the idea of it all just finally clicking right when that spirituality piece kind of drops in. I don't know how to. I don't know how to describe it. It's almost like you know, like watching a water wheel right and unless there's unless the water comes in like that wheels not moving right and then you know, spirituality there it is, right? It's just like starts moving and sets everything else into motion. You're like, holy shit. I guess there's something to this and it's, it's pretty intense. And that's what it sounds like, you know, sounds like sounds like that's what it's been like for you the growth and just kind of the idea of, you know, opening yourself up to it so that it just opens up to you type of thing. What um, you know, so I know that you'd mentioned on your When we're putting this stuff together, you know, what would you describe as the most direct path to spiritual enlightenment? Because I'm curious because you wrote it down? Kerri Hummingbird 40:11 Yeah. Well, that's why I say it's healing the mother wound. So we all have a mother wounds, because we're all born of a mother. And we're all on earth at this time on the planet. So unless you're just like born in a very unusual circumstance, you're experiencing some aspect of the mother wound. And at the very least, it's disconnection from the planet. It's a feeling of being separate alone. And you know, unguided, right? Like, like, somehow God's way out there somewhere. And maybe there is one or maybe there isn't. And you're here alone, just having to, like, survive, you know, so there's that, I have to do it myself. And all of that is all part of the mother wounds, and, and any ways that any kind of aspect of the feminine gifts that are that have been disempowered, all of those are the mother wounds. So if your intuition is not online, yet, if you're, you know, emotions, if you're not comfortable with your emotions, if, if you have a hard time slowing down and creating stillness and space, all of those are divine feminine gifts. And so it any one of that is also wounding and, and then there's ancestral patterns. So in a mother's body is her consciousness, right? It's her consciousness is happening inside her body. So when a baby starts to grow inside that consciousness, the baby is growing inside the mother's current state of consciousness, which means the baby is learning right away by this osmosis method, about life from the mother's reality. So therefore, if the mother's reality includes feeling disempowered, or not important, or not worthy, or not heard at all, how to speak up, I don't stand in my power, whatever version of that is happening inside that woman, the child is picking all of that up and inheriting that as his or her starting point in reality. So mothers often feel when I when they hear that, that's a deep truth that we all know. And that can provoke a feeling of guilt or shame about however, the conditions were that you were in when you had pregnant the first time, or a second time or third time, however many. And what I want to say to that is, you can let that go because you know, our children chose to come in incarnate through our vessels, at the exact moment that we were going through whatever it was, we were going through, to start them on their journey of discovery. So that they would have all that raw material to work with for their souls curriculum, so there isn't anything out of line. And with more consciousness, we can choose more consciously. And so there's always that beautiful gift of, if you haven't birthed yet, you can, you know, clear some of the ancestral patterns, you know, do some inner work, do some, some reconciliation within yourself in your ancestry to clean up some of that stuff that you don't want your kids to inherit, maybe there's some addiction patterns, or maybe there's some, you know, some conflict between the mothers or the daughters or the sons or whatever it is a father. So you can clear up that by doing your inner work, so that you're not passing that on as a starting point. So there's this invitation. And if your children are already fully grown, and having kids of their own, you can still do your work because as a mother, I know I remember moments of touching my belly when my baby was inside. And because I remember those moments, I can place myself there in the now and I can bring healing from my current awareness to my baby now. Even though it might have been 21 years ago, that he was in there, I can place that love inside me now. And trust that it's gonna find its way through his evolution to help him where he is now. And as I practice that, I've noticed him blossom. So my oldest son, I've noticed, you know, both of my sons, I do this, I put myself back in moments where I remember being with them in my body. And sometimes it's looking at a photograph. Sometimes it's just an embodied memory. And I send love and comfort back to that baby from my current awareness. We can all practice this. This is what the shamans have known for a long time we can be conscious and we can bring healing to seven generations back and seven forward using this method of, you know, fifth dimensional healing work on our children. Mothers are in a great spot to do that because we can remember when they were in inside of us, we can remember holding them. So we have this, this capacity, this direct and body connection with our babies so we can learn a good spot for do family healing work. Brandon Handley 45:12 That's very cool sounds. I think I remember hearing Gregg Braden, talk a little bit about a similar scenario, right? I mean, energy doesn't really know, time. Right? And energy is kind of at our discretion to direct you know, this, as we talked about before being vessels of creative energy as it flows through us. We can choose anger, we can choose something else, and we can choose like, which direction to send that and same thing with love and healing that you're talking about. So I think that that's, that's a great share, for sure. For sure. Well, is what I like to kind of hop on to right here is the whole idea that this is, look, when people tune in these podcasts, they tune your podcasts in the mind. It's kind of like spiritual speed dating, right? Like, you know, you know, I'm running through like, I'm just curious about like, who am I gonna hang out for a while, because I don't know about you. Like, I can listen to somebody like I'm a big like neville goddard fan or somebody. I've been listening to Swami svare pray Nanda for the past like year, but like, I'm ready for the next guy, right? I'm ready for the next gal guy, whatever. So spiritual speed dating. Let's ask a quick question or two, shall we? Um, to to do dear Bachelorette number one? Who is an artist, right? What is the line between art and not art? Kerri Hummingbird 46:37 What is the line between art of all I'm going to share this with you? With that I got from Don Miguel done. Jose Ruiz actually, I had this interview with him. And he said, you know, the Toltecs believe that, that your whole life is a piece of art. And I as an artist, I loved that. So I was a two dimensional Canvas artist, I painted acrylics and things like that. I loved creating art. And, and then I became a wordsmith artist, you know, I created books, I channeled texts. And, and it was like, when I ran across this Toltec teaching, I was like, my whole life is art. I like that my whole life is art. So Don Jose said in an interview, he said, you know, how do we not judge each other? He said, Well imagine that you're going into a gallery. And you walk up to this painting, and you bring your paint brushes, and your your paints, and you start painting and correcting someone's painting. You wouldn't do that. You wouldn't sit there with your paid supplies and go into a gallery and start painting over someone's painting. So don't do it to somebody else's life. That's like, you know, so I think that it's that creative expression. You know, true art is however we express ourselves, however, we, we want to express the essence of ourselves, or our passion, or joy or feelings, or whatever's going on inside of us that we want to share with others, that that can express in so many ways, including our just our life, you know, our very being can be a piece of art. Brandon Handley 48:06 I got it. So you know, self expression would be art. Right? Is that what you're saying? Yeah, yeah, pretty much I like it. Let's get one more in, shall we? Hmm. Haven't gone through this list of questions before. Ooh, what lifeless lesson did you learn the hard way? Kerri Hummingbird 48:31 Pretty much all almost every single lesson. You know, I, I used to beat myself up for making so many mistakes. Because I have I actually I have a sincere desire for perfection. It's in my jinkies chart, I have this fear of, you know, perfection in my city frequency of my purpose. So of course, I seek perfection. And, you know, I used to clamp myself down, you know, trying to not make mistakes, because I didn't ever want to make mistakes because I've got this fear of perfection, you know, the fear of making mistakes. And I started getting really mediocre when I was doing that. You know, my life was super mediocre. And I would say that is learning the hard way. You know, when you start clamping down your life force to not make mistakes. Eventually you're going to make really big mistakes which is clamping down your life or to not make mistakes. Now look, I Brandon Handley 49:30 get Kerri Hummingbird 49:31 that falls apart. Anyway, Brandon Handley 49:33 I get it. It makes sense. I mean, especially as we make these tremendous efforts to not make these mistakes is bound to just kind of ooze out on the side somewhere, but they got he missed. He missed the spots that that makes sense. What um, you know, who would you say with the work that you're doing? Who would you say is your ideal client? Kerri Hummingbird 49:57 My ideal client is someone who really is Ready to go into their shadows and take a look and see what's in there. And and really like bring the flashlight and learn how to do it with compassion and love and forgiveness and and really wants to melt you know is ready to be more gentle loving and kind with themselves with their spouse with their families ready to heal. And you know, I don't I have this whole thing I'm calling Earth mamas. I invite Earth mamas to come and work with me. And because I'm saying Earth mama, some people make the assumption that that means that I don't work with men or that I don't work with people who don't have children. And that's not the case. When I'm saying that I'm saying because we are on mama Earth, you know, we're on Mother Earth. And if you feel it in your heart, like I love this planet, I want to be a difference. I love my family. I want my future generations to be able to have like ripe juicy peaches and I want them to to be able to see dolphins you know, in in the waves and though and the oceans be clear, if that matters to you, then you're an earth mama and my book you know so I really people that care, you know people that care about this planet and people that want to make a difference and are ready to face their shadows. Brandon Handley 51:12 Look, I like dolphins and fruit so I feel like I'm gonna so no, that's That's great. You know, and I think that it's super clear when you're ready to start doing the work you'll you'll know when you're there. Sounds like there's the people that you're calling out to where can they come and find more Carrie hummingbird.

Well, I'm not sure about today. No Diet Coke pops, microwave pings, or gas range sparks to be heard on today's broadcast, but David Waldman sounds pretty healthy. QAnon does have a hard time finding living people who don't think they're idiots, so many spent the day at Dealey Plaza searching for dead Kennedys and ended up at a Rolling Stones concert. Those are the kind of people running for office nowadays. At least 10 GQP who were at the Jan. 6 insurrection were just elected to office. More will be coming in 2022, although a few, such as “too blond for jail” Jenna Ryan, need to spend a few days in jail before establishing their PACs. DURR! Ed Durr, Republican truck driver, deep thinker, represents those people taking over the country. Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves won't let this new generation out-imbecile him without a fight, and will sue President Joe Biden over one of his vaccine mandates. (Guess which one.) Ron DeSantis is assembling his new election crimes police force as a brilliant countermove to Roger Stone's ambitions. Ron's suppression of university professors has turned out to be less brilliant. A Texas radio host bilked elderly listeners out of millions of dollars, and will be sentenced to 3 life prison terms… at 80 years old… most of his victims dead… most of the money spent. A cautionary tale that Donald Trump is certainly taking to heart. Trump will be in his 90's before justice reaches him. A federal judge said she'd rule "expeditiously" on whether Donald can keep his records from the January 6 committee. If Donald Trump truly believed he had “Executive Privilege” he'd have had the Air Force drone strike a few places by now. Virginia Democrats did all the right things for voter's rights, and this is the thanks they get? Hey now! You can't say that trash about Loudoun Democrats! If Loudoun county were a state, you can bet they'd have a way different governor right now. Not everybody can be the smartest people, you know. The Bolivian president, Luis Arce, at the UN Climate Change Conference, said the solution to the climate crisis is to change the model of civilization and move towards an alternative model to capitalism, the concept of living well together in harmony with Mother Earth. Oh well.

There are many transits moving in the sky right now. If you've been feeling out of touch with yourself - that could be why! But today's episode is here to bring you back home in more ways than one. Beginning with a meditation to connect to earth, Rachel then dives into the true concept of home. Why are there some places that just don't feel like home? How can a physical location make us feel more like ourselves? What other versions of us are hiding within? As Rachel prepares for her move to Sweden, she recognizes the truth that Aruba just hasn't felt like home lately. The life she pictured here didn't turn out as planned - or maybe her inner self didn't want it to. Home beckons to us. We can sense it when we move slowly, thoughtfully, and in tune with nature. Don't get so busy or so caught up in life that you forget to actively participate in what you create. It all begins and ends with Mother Earth.

WHERE DO OUR LOVED ONES GO WHEN THEY DIE? with Mariel Forde Clarke “We all have the journey… It's already written into our sacred contract long before we come upon Mother Earth. And it is a lovely journey, but it can be so challenging and painful as well. The most painful experiences are the ones that our souls have called forth for learning and for mastery.” -- Mariel Forde Clarke “We all get messages from our loved ones, if we're open to it.” -- Mariel Forde Clarke “The heavens and the earth meet during our dream and sleep state.” -- Mariel Forde Clarke Episode Summary: We all miss the loved ones we've lost. Where are they? What did they experience when they crossed over? Where are they now? In this episode, we talk with Irish teacher and counselor Mariel Forde Clarke who had not one, not two, but THREE near death experiences (NDEs)! Wow! Listen in to understand how Mariel Forde Clarke has experienced life on the other side, and how she now communicates with spirit guides, and uses her gifts to help people heal and grow. We Discuss: Her THREE near death experiences! 1) falling off a roof as a child when her life flashed before her eyes, 2) near drowning while being trapped under a diving board, where she felt a man's hands bringing her to the surface, although there was no one there, and 3) the most vivid of the three for Mariel – while hemorrhaging during surgery, hovering over her body and being catapulted into a place of heavenly music, rainbow color of light, a feeling of blissful euphoric peace without pain or worry, a feeling of undiluted love. The silver cord that connects our body to our soul, much like the umbilical cord connecting a baby to their mother. Except the silver cord remains in place during our lives, and keeps us connected to our higher selves and the spirit world. Even during near death experiences, the cord remains in place. The silver cord only snaps upon final death, that is when the soul is ready to leave earth. Soul fragmentation, often where one experiences repeated traumas (things like sexual or verbal abuse, alcohol abuse), or perhaps even multiple surgeries. Mariel's treatment involves soul integration, when she perceives it as the right course, which can take many sessions over many hours. If soul integration or soul retrieval is not right for this person, she refers to a professional counselor, psychologist or psychiatrist. Fear during death and dying. How Mariel works with the dying, always with the permission of the soul. She finds those with a belief in the afterlife experience much less fear around their own death. How one's experience of the afterlife is related to their belief system during life. Those with a belief system where they believe in a God or Allah or Buddha or Krishna leave this Earth plane much freer without struggle, without fighting. Those that don't have beliefs are the ones paralyzed, so afraid of crossing over. Different levels or spheres in the afterlife, contrasted with just the two traditional realms of heaven and hell, as is taught in many religions. The lowest levels are devoid of God's light, like the flicker of a candle, and there is much learning to do, available through spirit guides and counselors, spiritual midwives. Why do so many people dismiss the possibility of any type of life after death? No theologian, no scientist, no doctor, no physicist in the world has ever stepped forward and said, categorically, there is no proof for afterlife. On the other hand, hundreds and thousands of doctors and scientists and physicists have endorsed the phenomena. Back to Plato and Aristotle, to philosopher Descartes (1600s), to scientist and mathematician Swedenborg (1700s) - they all support the afterlife, because they had so much evidential proof themselves. Einstein said there was a greater energy in the Universe, far greater than man, a supreme intelligence.

Hello to you listening in Eggenfelden, Bavaria, Germany!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday.Many years ago I took part in a sweat lodge purification ceremony facilitated by a Lakota shaman who taught this prayer: "Good morning guides, guardians and Grace, Mother Earth, Father Sky, Creator of all, above and below, within and without, furred and feathered, creeping, crawling, 2-legged, 4-legged, rooted and flying ones, those that swim and me. Thank you for rest and leading me out of Dreamtime to live another day - with a grateful heart - come what may." This last part is the most important because as your day rolls along there will be annoyances, aggravations, and inconveniences. When they occur - as they most definitely will - pause and repeat this, “with a grateful heart come what may.” It'll save you a lot of unnecessary grief. Guaranteed!Question: How do you save yourself unnecessary grief? 60 Seconds is your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.

During Alyson Charles' brutal yet beautiful spiritual awakening, animals were a daily medicine that coaxed repressed traumas to the surface. Through the initiation, she rebirthed as "RockStar Shaman" with a mission to collaborate directly with the wisdoms of Mother Earth and Great Spirit/Source, and bridge the gap between animals and humans. Her spiritual allegiance to the animal world comes full circle with her new book, Animal Power, which decodes the spiritual significance of 100 species along with transformative practices to deepen your relationship with the power animal wanting to support you at this time. In this episode, Alyson reveals the emotionally-charged backstory to birthing her living, breathing medicine book, the responsibility of owning her role as a shaman, and how lessons from surrender and celibacy led her to find sacred union with Luke Storey. We also talk about: Exploring the death portal The potency of illustrations in Animal Power The meaning behind The Eagle Condor Prophecy How to connect to your spirit animal The responsibility that comes with spiritual gifts Advice on surviving a spiritual awakening The inner work to finding an aligned relationship Sponsors: Beekeeper's Naturals | Go to https://beekeepersnaturals.com/pages/shopthehive (beekeepersnaturals.com/almost30) or use code “ALMOST30” for 25% off your first order.

In this episode we interview two of the founding members of The Wind & The Warrior, Ife Afriye Kilimanjaro and Nana Korantema. In 2020, The Wind & The Warrior led a Sacred Waters Pilgrimage to connect Black and Native culture-bearers and advocacy leaders working to address the climate crisis for ritual and conversation. Throughout the pilgrimage, they made 7 stops along the Mississippi River. In each stop The Wind & The Warrior coordinated with local Native womxn to connect through ritual and conversation. Ife Afriye Kilimanjaro and Nana Korantema share with us how their journey allowed them to create bridges between Black and Native womxn and between humans and Mother Earth. This episode of Who Belongs? is part of a new series of podcasts focused on telling bridging stories. Throughout the series we'll talk to leaders implementing bridging work and individuals who have experienced the bridging transformation. This project is led by OBI's Blueprint for Belonging project (B4B), and hosted by program researcher Miriam Magaña Lopez. This project is funded by The Annie E. Casey Foundation, Inc.
A former TV and radio presenter has backed away from her earlier claim that Mother Earth created an earthquake out of displeasure with Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's Covid management plan. Former Breakfast, Good Morning and RNZ presenter Liz Gunn now says she was only using a metaphor. It comes after Ardern had been holding a press conference last Friday to unveil the nation's new 90 per cent vaccination target and traffic light system for handling the virus when an earthquake hit the central North Island. Gunn subsequently posted a video online saying Mother Earth's quake had arrived just after Ardern announced her "evil plan". "Our mother, our jewel, this beautiful country said enough, enough," she said. However, Gunn today told Newstalk ZB's Heather du Plessis-Allan that she had been using the earthquake as a metaphor. "I'm sorry ... I have a sensitive soul, I do work in metaphor," Gunn said. "The metaphor is that we are all collectively getting broken." Gunn earlier expressed anti-vaccination views in her video. Du Plessis-Allan said to Gunn that she had talked about having a heart condition in her video and asked whether she had a medical exemption for not getting the Pfizer Covid vaccine. "I do not give out my personal medical details," Gunn responded. "I do not ask people personal medical history. What has happened to our country?" Gunn said she respected du Plessis-Allan's right to have a different opinion on issues. "I'll get into Parliament if I have to and defend your right to do what you want with your body," she said. Gunn posted her video on Saturday. In it, she said the introduction of vaccine passports was a way to divide the nation and segregate people with different vaccine statuses from one another. During a 10-minute interview with du Plessis-Allan today, she said she had received lots of emails of support since posting her video. "The emotional side of me, I often read these and I have to stop and I have to weep for our country," she said before reading aloud one letter she said she had received. Gunn previously worked at TVNZ between 1990 and 2003. She was part of the original TVNZ Breakfast team alongside Mike Hosking and Susan Wood in 1997. In 2001, Gunn took Alison Mau's place as host, forming a team alongside Hosking. But she sparked headlines in December that year when she quit the programme live on air. At the time, it was reported that Gunn and Hosking had not clicked as a presenting team but TVNZ bosses were left scrambling when Gunn told viewers she wouldn't be back in 2002. During that time, Gunn also worked at Radio New Zealand, hosting a number of shows before finishing up in 2016. Gunn's latest video came after Ardern announced on Friday that New Zealand would move to a traffic light system to manage Covid-19 when District Health Boards have 90 per cent of their eligible populations vaccinated.

Lydz G has been in medical treatment for their eating disorder on and off for the last 12 years, and began their journey in 12 step a year ago through the rooms of Al Anon, after the bad break up of their first open, long term lesbian relationship. The big book says "we addicts are extremists" and Lydz is no exception - they went to three zoom meetings a day seeking experience, strength, and hope after being given their first conception of God in recovery- the Gift Of Desperation. Their obsessive mind was put to use immediately in service, where they helped organize a worldwide recovery marathon for BIPOC (Black + Indigenous People of Color), therefore serving the second Power Greater Than Themself: Cultural Resilience. There they found their sponsor and began their journey in the steps through Big Book recovery. They identify today as a multidisciplinary addict. Today, they talk about a Higher Power in the form of astrology, tarot, culture, tradition, community, Source, Spirit of the Universe, and Mother Earth, and how to genuinely seek our own concept of God when there are certain trials and low spots ahead. God is meant to be experienced and not understood, but Lydz understands so far that their Creator fills their life with jokes and lessons. Welcome to Reco12. We are an organization whose addictions include alcohol, drugs, lust and sex, food and gambling, just to name a few. We come together from all places, faiths and backgrounds to learn the similarities of addiction and to gain tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path. We invite recovering addicts with at least 1 year sobriety and who are actively working their recovery in their respective fellowships to share their experience, strength and hope on a live Zoom webinar, each Friday at 12:00 pm central time, for 20-25 minutes. Then, we, the live audience, get the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker for another 20-25 minutes.

And right now, I would like to introduce to you, Meg Gibbs. Welcome, Meg. Before I read your official bio, I just want to say that... You know what, I'm gonna start with your official bio and then I'm gonna shower platitudes on you. How about we do that?0:00:25.2 Meg Gibbs: Great, I love it. A compliment at the end, sounds good.0:00:28.8 Speaker 1: Okay, good, good, good, good. So Meg Gibbs is a shamanic spiritual guide and somatic coach who helps people heal their relationship with their body and spirit. She has over 20 years of experience, studying with indigenous teachers from the US and South America, specifically working with the Lakota medicine wheel, which I freaking love, and the Q'ero. Am I saying that right? Q'ero.0:00:58.6 Meg Gibbs: Q'ero.0:01:00.9 Mischa Z: Q'ero. And the Q'ero lineage from the Andes of Peru. Her work weaves together ancient wisdom, experiential coaching and leadership techniques, and is grounded in embodied practice... And is grounded in embodied practice and intuition. She holds space for her clients to uncover the truth of who they are and how they want to share that with the world. She offers sessions remotely, for scientific fingerprint analysis, customized coaching, sacred ceremony and soul-aligned branding, to meet her clients where they are, on their personal or entrepreneurial journey?0:01:39.7 Meg Gibbs: Absolutely.0:01:41.5 Mischa Z: Absolutely. Welcome, meg. So, serendipitously, I think our relationship speaks to a willingness to have an open mind and willingness to perhaps embrace and work with somebody that you might not normally go to. Yeah?0:02:01.8 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, absolutely, for sure.0:02:03.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah. So we met through serendipitous events, perhaps five, six... Four, five, six years ago, somewhere in there, and sort of forced cohabitation almost, for a weekend. Yes. And then normally, I think, in the outside world or however you wanna say that, we wouldn't have had an opportunity to work together. But we did, and you have been such a massive, massive part of my personal journey and my transformation. And I just was writing down some of the amazing things that we did together, that you brought me on the journey of. You're like, "Hey, Misha, here's... Let's do this, let's do this." And so, I... Movement exercises, writing exercises, meditation exercises, these ridiculous visualization exercises. And when I say ridiculous, just like ridiculous in a magical way.0:03:06.3 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.0:03:09.7 Mischa Z: And then we did some really cool group stuff via Zoom, which I was pleasantly surprised with, where you had put together some... Almost an online class structure, and people from Canada jumped in, I was in there, we just did all this cool stuff and you've... Again, you bring the magic. Simple as that.0:03:35.9 Meg Gibbs: Thank you. Yeah, it's so fun to be able to support people in that way. And it's funny, because you can read my whole bio and we can talk about what I do, and here's the bullet points, but the truth is, if someone was like, 'Meg, what do you do?" and I was like, "Oh, I make magic happen." And I can't really say that when I shake somebody's hand, but I know that that's part of my truth and part of my gift, is to show up and hold space for magic to happen, for other people. That's the fun part for me. For sure.0:04:05.1 Mischa Z: Yeah, and as I was going down that list, I was literally getting chills, and my hair was standing up even more than... So powerful, so powerful. And again, it just speaks... I don't mean audience, thank you for indulging us, but to have that open mind and to try... If an opportunity falls in front of you like this now, take advantage because it can be transformational, and I think one of the great things you said about me, Meg, not to make this about me, I apologize. But I'm a gamer and willing to jump in the fray and try different things. So I would encourage anybody watching and listening, jump in the fray, take a risk, if somebody on this summit resonates with you, but they're outside of who you might normally think is in your wheelhouse, just go for it.0:05:02.7 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, absolutely. And I think that speaks to something that we'll talk about, which is for me, the connection to the body and really listening intuitively for what comes up for you. And so, when I think of when we met and how we've worked together, there's a sense of trust or expansion or listening, and that's the piece that when I tell people, "Oh, you're looking for a coach or a healer or whatever, a mechanic," it doesn't really matter. But if you can tune in and listen, "Oh, does that person feel good to me?" and it might not even, like you said, logically makes sense of like, "Oh, they're a different gender, or they have this woo specialty that I am not so sure about or whatever," but if it feels like, "Ooh, there's a little something there to play with," that's the piece that I encourage people to follow.0:05:50.6 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah, I love that. Thank you. So, quickly, somatic. What's somatic coach? When you say it... When that's...0:06:02.8 Meg Gibbs: Yeah. Real simple. Somatic is just meaning, being in your body. So what I do is, I coach people around being in their body, and for me, being in your body is a sacred practice. So it's like building a muscle. We talk a lot about going to the gym and building physical muscle. And so, when you haven't had practice to be in your body, because our society doesn't teach that, you're not asked on a daily basis, "Mischa, how is your heart feeling in your body right now? What does it feel like?" You even named the goose bumps, noticing your physical sensation, noticing when emotions come up, because there's so much wisdom there, and 90% of our world is run from here up. That's it. So imagine, you have access to all of this other information and transformation, and that's what I feel like the body provides. So somatic coaching or somatic wisdom is just being in your body, checking in with your body, learning from your body, all of that is in there. So it's just a fancy word for it. But, yeah.0:07:08.0 Mischa Z: Okay. I love that. Thank you for that. That's a beautiful explanation. And as you were talking about it, literally, I was sensationally in the body, like...0:07:19.0 Meg Gibbs: Right. I could see it in your eyes too. [chuckle]0:07:22.0 Mischa Z: So I wanna talk to... Just quickly too, and maybe three-minute version, but this... You... And I love this about you. It's one of my favorite things about you, is just the fact that you didn't five years ago, decide, "I'm gonna go explore shamanic ideas or this or that," and then bring that to the world. You grew up in it, due to the nature of your family. So when you say 20 years, that means... Yeah, when you were a teen, when you were young, you were... Due to the nature of growing up within it, you're doing this practice. Yeah?0:07:58.2 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, absolutely, yeah. I'll give you the short version. So my mom started working with a Lakota teacher when I was young, and I started working with that teacher when I was 11. So I've been studying shamanic wisdom and lineages for over 20 years, since I was a kid, and I am a white woman, and I like to say that because it's important to know that this is a spiritual lineage for me, it's not a genetic lineage. And honoring that and honoring my teachers, and part of what I believe in, is giving money back to the people who created the space for me to do the work that I do. And with that, what happens for me is this balance of holding what is true, even if it doesn't match up with the outside. And what I mean by that is like, "Yes, I'm a young white person, and I also have this really deep soulful appreciation and carrying of this work inside of myself," and it's integrated into how I see the world and how I relate to people, the work that I do, how I show up, even when I go to the grocery store.0:09:11.1 Meg Gibbs: It's in me, in a way that is not just, "Oh, I took a workshop and now I'm a shaman." And we talked about this, but I don't actually call myself a shaman. Some other people call me that, but I say I'm a shamanic practitioner, and that I do energetic and emotional healing and support with people. But holding the two lineages that I hold spiritually, are the Lakota and then this Andean tradition from the mountains of Peru, and my teacher is Don Mariano. So I've been initiated into these teachings, and it's an extremely... Or it has been, in the past, an extremely private world. And so, growing up with this really disciplined spiritual approach made me, obviously, pretty different from the other kids in middle school, who were talking about sports, and I'm talking about talking to trees on the weekends.[laughter]0:10:06.2 Meg Gibbs: The short version is just that this is very much a part of who I am and how I show up, and it's important to me, that people are honoring the root of where this comes from as well.0:10:20.6 Mischa Z: Perfect, thank you. Beautiful. Well done, in three minutes too, the three-minute version.0:10:25.0 Meg Gibbs: Perfect.0:10:26.9 Mischa Z: And you were saying studying and I'm gonna add to that, implementing. So studying and implementing. So, beautiful. I think we get to it. I say we get to the question. What do you think?0:10:37.7 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, take me. Let's go.0:10:38.9 Meg Gibbs: Alright, fantastic. So I'm gonna lay out a scenario, and then I'm gonna askyou a question, and... If we think of life as that three-legged stool, relationships, finance, health, it's when two of those legs go out, that it really can get... Life can get lifey, if you want to say. And so, for me, my parents passed away in rapid succession, divorce, further failed relationships. Physically, I was fine. I would tell you that. I looked physically fit. I had no stressors going on, physically, but that... For other people, that might...0:11:31.5 Mischa Z: Anyway, you get what I'm saying. But the fact of the matter was, things got so heavy that my normal tools for working through emotional upheaval or through stressful times weren't enough, so I couldn't success my way through it, or work at it, work harder, fix it. So that being the case, and... Oh, here, I'm gonna get back to script. That helps me. I'm gonna get back on script. So to top it off, the pull yourself up from your bootstraps, fix it and push your way through it methods that served me so well, were no longer working. I needed new tools.0:12:15.8 Mischa Z: By the grace of God, I had an open mind for new tools. Hence, Meg dropped into my life. This is my question to you. Thinking of shamanism, ceremony, sacred ceremony, what are the exact next steps you would offer this person, so they know they are headed in the new right direction, that they will have positive momentum towards getting their life back on track?0:12:43.1 Meg Gibbs: Yeah. So the first thing honestly, is take a breath, [chuckle] acknowledging where you are, checking in, noticing what it's like to be you in this moment, is a really powerful tool, and almost zooming out and looking at yourself with love. So I say that because so often, when we're in that space of life crumbling or struggling or whatever, especially if you're holding on from the inside, like if you are someone who is still high achieving and making money and doing the thing, so people don't think there's anything wrong, you're holding a lot, there's a lot of that hamster wheel going on. And so, that breath and that acknowledgement to even just go, "I'm having a hard time right now. Wow. What is it like to meet myself with some compassion?"0:13:42.9 Meg Gibbs: So I think, so often, we launch into action and action steps, and, "How do I do x, y, z?" And here's the thing, you can read books, you can listen to podcasts, you can go to therapy, there's like... Here's 29 things you can do it. But the other side of it is, how you be, how you be in yourself, how you be in the world, how you show up for people, how you need people to show up for you.0:14:11.1 Meg Gibbs: So this is just general sort of life advice, container energy stuff. So to answer your question more specifically around the shamanic piece or around ritual, I like to really use small intuitive rituals. And what I mean by that is, I'm gonna show you. So I brought some tea to our call, I don't know if you can read this.0:14:34.4 Mischa Z: Yeah. Sending you a socially distanced hug in a mug. Nice.0:14:38.5 Meg Gibbs: I love this. It's a happy mug. And so, what I really like to do that's simple is, in the morning or when you have your tea or your coffee or whatever, and you can do this with me if you have some water with you, whatever you're drinking, and so you're just gonna place your hand over it, and we're gonna check in and just for a moment, you can close your eyes, and put your intention from your heart, imagine it reaching out and meeting that cup and that heart space moving through your hand, down into the substance, down into the water, the tea, the coffee, whatever, and placing an intention in there for yourself. "I wanna be kinder to myself today. I wanna give myself space to breathe. I really need some support from the Earth. I wanna be more grounded. I tap into my strength," whatever that is for you. And then when you're ready, you open your eyes and you simply drink it in.0:15:44.8 Meg Gibbs: Small small things.0:15:46.9 Mischa Z: Small, small things. So juicy. That was good.0:15:52.6 Meg Gibbs: Yeah. And there's one that... I don't know about you, I kinda listen to things and then adapt them. And so, I heard years ago, Oprah said something about, "Before your feet hit the floor in the morning, say thank you." And she said, "Say thank you three or four times." And I remember being like, "Oh, I like that. That's catchy. Let me think about it." And so, as a self-identified not-morning person, when things are kind of blowing up in your life, when there's a lot going on, I think one of the most powerful things to do, is to put your feet on the Earth, literally. And if you can, go out your door in the morning, before you talk to anybody... This is like, yes, if you have kids or a spouse or somebody who is with you or your dog or whatever it is, sometimes we talk to people first, which is understandable, but when I can, I will intentionally take myself outside, take my shoes off and put them on the Earth, so that there is an ignited connection. So these small moments, that's what I wanna focus on today, is how you can breathe into the support within and around you. I just felt myself, show up, here we are.0:17:16.7 Mischa Z: Yeah, me too. Yeah, that's good. I love it. Continue.0:17:23.8 Meg Gibbs: Yeah. And so, with that gratitude... So when I say prayers, not everyone says prayers, and whatever you refer to, if you believe in a higher power or something bigger than us, that's how I like to talk about it, something bigger than you. And some of my friends believe that something bigger is our community, it doesn't have to be God or the universe or whatever. So I, because of my spiritual lineage, use the words great spirit, when I'm praying to something bigger than me. So when I'm out there and I put my hands and my feet on the Earth, part of what I'm doing is, I'm giving my energy down into the earth before I take. Because so much of what we do, when we're struggle bussing, is like, "I need support, I need help, I need," whatever, whether that's internal or you're voicing that externally. And so, being able to put your hands or your feet on the Earth for literally three seconds and just say, "I'm so grateful to be here today." And giving that energy down to the thing that gives us life. So, yeah.0:18:35.0 Mischa Z: Meg, that was beautiful.0:18:37.3 Meg Gibbs: Yeah. I've been thinking about it in the shower, what to say.[laughter]0:18:47.5 Mischa Z: So, when you... I love the gratitude, the give to the Earth before we take, or it gives back. Do you do the thank you, thank you, thank you, or that as well, sort of that... You were talking about the little Oprah trick or...0:19:03.4 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, so it sort of depends. This is part of my personal philosophy, is around designing things intuitively, that work for you, because I think some people really need specific practice, and I'm happy to say, "Do this thing, do that thing," but the truth is that, we can then get hung up on the indoctrination of how to do the right thing, instead of trusting yourself. And my goal in life is to help people trust themselves more, 'cause when you trust yourself, that's when you're able to make those split-second decisions, you grow a career you love, you relate to people differently, you connect with things in your world that feel like aligned and exciting.0:19:42.8 Meg Gibbs: So yes, you can get up and say thank you four times, if that's what feels good to you. But for me, for instance, when I pray and I say... The beginning of my prayers are always, "Aho, great spirit, I am grateful for my life and for this day," and that's how I start my prayers 'cause that's what was taught to me. But there are times where I can come in and just kind of feel into my body and feel into myself and say, "Great Spirit, I'm showing up the best I can today." We have to just listen to what's true.0:20:24.1 Mischa Z: You know what I love about just what you were saying too is... I like this, it's like... For me, I had this incredible confidence and was moving through the arc of life so powerfully, and then when the wheels came off, that confidence was shattered. So, to re... I like how you're talking about... It's like you use that as a tool to slowly start rebuilding some confidence. Yeah?0:20:56.0 Meg Gibbs: Yeah. Well, and I would say also, that true alignment of self, where we meet ourselves where we are, and that sounds like a little bit big, so let me see if I can put it a different way. Just to acknowledge what's happening, to be honest about what's happening, because when you say the wheels are coming off, we can intellectually understand that, but when it's like, "I'm having trouble eating because my appetite is gone because I'm so stressed. My relationships are falling apart because I feel lonely, and I'm not sure how to share that with someone. I am worried about interviewing for a new job, because now I feel like crap because this and this and this happened."0:21:41.6 Meg Gibbs: So it's like when you get into the truth of what's happening and honor that you continue to show up, that you're here, you're here at the summit, because you want to experience a new way to face these issues or solve things, and then understanding where you are right now. That's... For me, that's the path forward, 'cause if not, then you're going, "Oh, well, I should feel fine because I have money, and I have this, and I have this, and I have my health and I'm okay," instead of going, "Oh my God, my world. What am I doing?" 'Cause the moment you allow yourself to go, "Hey, I'm feeling lost and alone right now," and somebody else goes, "Oh my God, me too." That's that togetherness.0:22:28.0 Mischa Z: Yeah, yeah. Very cool. What other sort of tips and tricks and tools were you... So I love it. So we had... Step one was sort of acknowledge or however you said that, and then we had a next thing is like, go out, connect to the earth. I love that. Find that moment if you can, when appropriate. Preferably sooner, the better. And take your shoes off, connect to the ground, feet, hands, whatever, that little gratitude exercise and such, was what was next on your...0:23:13.2 Meg Gibbs: On my list. Yeah, so I also... I think, with intuition specifically, which is a big part of my work is helping people tap into what they know to be true, because often, when we go to someone, when we're asking advice or we hire a helping professional, I believe we actually do know the answer. It's in there and instead of piling on lots of people's information, being able to check in and see what is true for me in this moment, and what do I actually know. So one tool that I use when somebody is kind of confused or trying to understand a situation is, instead of saying, "Well, I'm facing this huge unknown and I'm really scared and I don't know where to go next," we tap into what do you know. In what do you know, you even feel that energy shift of, "Okay, I'm gonna name some things that I know out loud," which is hard for people, and you can do this writing, this is a great exercise writing, is to write down 20 things that you know.0:24:18.7 Meg Gibbs: And here's the thing, the reason that it's 20 is 'cause you'll get three to five that are pretty easy, where you're like, "I know I'm safe, I know I'm okay, I know I like sandwiches," whatever it is. But there's something that changes, when you get beyond your comfort zone of, "Oh, here's the initial thoughts," and then you start to go deeper. So this is like a self-coaching tool, where you can really listen, to see, "Oh my gosh, I know... Let me think of something in this moment. I know I do better when I connect with nature. And so, if that's one of my things and that's say, number 17 on the list, I might go, "Oh, after I finish this list, I'm gonna go outside." And the reason I keep bringing up nature, I should say, is because in the Native American spiritual practice and in the Peruvian practice, all of this is connected to earth, earth is mother, Mother Earth, it's called Pachamama is another word for it. And so, when I connect to the great mother, the sacred one who created us all, however you believe that, is that then I'm connecting to my essence self, I'm giving that space of my truth in relationship, in right relationship with where we came from. Does that make sense?0:25:43.9 Mischa Z: It does. Yeah. It does. Any way you would reframe that, just in case? I was viscerally internalizing that. So I... It was going in... That's why I say that. So I'm like, "Yeah, I get it," 'cause I viscerally felt it.0:26:09.6 Meg Gibbs: Yeah, yeah. So that question of, "Where do you feel most connected?" It might not be nature, it might be on the dance floor, it might be taking a walk, it might be staring deeply into somebody's eyes, there's all these different... Taking a bath, I love taking a bath, it's like a sacred ritual. And so, lighting candles, maybe putting something in the water, that feels good to me, and it's like we can do it with so many different things. Sensation is really helpful for being present. So smells, touch, taste, sound, any of that, to really get into the moment.0:26:46.2 Meg Gibbs: So when you're feeling anxious or you have this experience of, "Oh my God, my life is falling apart. What do I do?" If you can take that initial beat to connect to something, it helps you feel connected. And I know that sounds like, "Oh no, no... What does she mean?" But you feel it, you know when you feel connected. And I recorded a really short video that was seven seconds, the other day, that I put on Instagram, and I said... I was talking about connecting with the trees and nature, and I said in there, "If you don't have time or you don't have access to connect with the trees, watch my hand connect to the tree in the video, and tap into the energy that you feel, that's connecting between our human self and I would say our divine self." So I'm getting very "woo". Are you still with me?0:27:41.7 Mischa Z: I'm still with you. Thank you. Hang in there, everybody. Hang in there. No, I think it's an opportunity for us, to explore the "woo". Let's be real, sometimes a little "woo" in our lives can be good. For me, I think... I can get very contempt, prior to investigation, if you wanna say those types of terms, or very myopic in my... I'll speak for me. I'm sure everybody else watching, is always open-minded and...0:28:20.7 Meg Gibbs: Oh yeah, yeah, none of us... We don't have any hang-ups over here, clearly.0:28:23.6 Mischa Z: Yes. But it's alright. A little "woo" is good. Don't worry. There's plenty of non "woo" on this summit too. So we're bringing the balance right now.0:28:33.3 Meg Gibbs: Well, it's... For me at least, part of what I pride myself on is having grounded "woo", that's... Practical, grounded, engaged, spiritual spirituality. That's the part for me. And you know this about me, I'm not... No shade to anybody else, but I am not a crystal worshipping, connect with... That's not my vibe. I really do want people to be grounded in themselves, in their body, because that's the difference. When you meet people who are just in like, "I made a crystal grid so I could manifest millions of dollars." Great, sure. That might work. But the truth is that we have to meet both, our divine self and our human self.0:29:15.7 Meg Gibbs: And so, in here, for me, that's where the magic happens. That's like... When I say, when I work with people, "It's you, me and spirit. It's the three of us, connecting and co-creating." So I'm not here to have all the answers, and the truth is, I think the answers are within you from a divine perspective, that we can pull out that spark. So, that's the point that... If people tune out because they're not interested in this language, what I love is that every single teacher speaks to certain audiences and certain people, because there's a resonance. So, just notice if this resonates or not. It's not personal.0:30:00.1 Mischa Z: Yes, yes. Beautiful. Yeah, that's well said. Is there further? Did you have further... I wanna make sure we keep... Or...0:30:09.5 Meg Gibbs: Well, so your question around the, "Do I say Thank you four times." The one thing that I do that I enjoy, so I live by myself with my dog, currently. I have done this with partners in the past or with friends, is before bed, I do like to say three things that I'm grateful for, out loud, and I used to write them down, and I think writing is a beautiful way to express and hold that energy. But there's also something also delightful and silly to me, about telling my dog what I'm grateful for, from the day, and often, I say, "And I'm grateful for her health and her well-being." And so there's that sense of even if it's not another person, even if you're completely on your own, that you can witness yourself doing that, just by doing it out loud and honoring, "Here's three things I'm grateful for, before I rest tonight." So I like that, as a closing practice. So I've given you some beginning, end of the day and some stuff to do in the middle.0:31:07.8 Mischa Z: Yes, so good, I love it. I think that's a beautiful place to end this session. So, everybody, if this interview with Meg was fantastic, and you want to get even more content from Meg, upgrade to the all-access pass, because Meg and I are gonna be doing round two here, which is going to be fantastic. I can't wait to see what comes up. So yeah, be sure to upgrade to the all access pass for the bonus interview. There should be a button here somewhere, not sure where it is yet. Any final thoughts to share, that we did not get a chance to cover, Meg? .0:31:51.4 Meg Gibbs: Just the power of... What do I wanna say? That there's... For me... This is a little bit of an advanced concept I'm throwing in at the end, but I think it's important, is, for me, there are three layers of connection. There's the connection to our selves, the connection to others, the circle around us, the collective, and then the connection to what's bigger than us, the earth, spirit, etcetera.0:32:17.3 Meg Gibbs: So if you're here in the summit, I imagine that you're on a path, and that you're on a path seeking relationship and healing with yourself, with the people around you and/or with spirit. So that's my invitation, is just to start to notice and track what resonates with you, to find what expands and what contracts that connection. So what feels good, and just to notice, again, how it feels in your body. So that's my... Rooting for people. Yes. Yeah.0:32:47.8 Mischa Z: That was amazing. Everybody can find Meg, at www.Megibbs.com. Imgonna spell it too, just to make sure there's no confusion, M-E-G G-I-B-B-S dot com. So Megibbs.com. Click the button on the all access pass, to get unlimited access to all the interviews, to get access to Meg and I's round two, which is coming up, and then also, Meg so graciously, is going to be offering up, as a bonus for everybody who upgrades a session, that there'll be a link, so you can go deep with Meg, if you want to, for free.

Feminine Faith - Part 16 "Mother Earth And Motherhood" With Rabbi Ari Sollish (Recorded live at the Intown Jewish Academy on February 5, 2012) Feminine Faith examines a mitzvah traditionally observed by women—Rosh Chodesh, the celebration of the New Moon, in which women rejoice by refraining from normal work. The Rebbe's profound text explores the unique gifts of the feminine—its connection to the undivided essence of G-d's reality in a way that transcends the masculine drive for mastery and control of nature's cause and effect. This discourse is a powerful meditation on the importance of the intuitive and the holistic and a sharp critique of the kind of mind that reduces the world and people to machines—the kind of mind that took power in the years after this was written and brought untold misery to millions, and to Jews especially.

Angel number 138: This angel number is dedicated to life itself and the search for something that has depth and meaning. We are part of something much bigger. How do we remember that? We leave our comfort zone. We travel. We learn. We receive. And mostly... we get our hands dirty, we keep barefoot as often as we can, and we listen to every sign Mother Earth gifts us with. She needs us, and it's time to listen.

Happy Aries Full Blood Moon Beloved Soul Family!We bloom in darkness these coming two weeks, descending into the Death, Magic and Ancestral Healing Portals of the Pluto/Scorpio realms and Samhain Cross Quarter.This morning the Aries Blood Full Moon is exact at 9:57 am central squaring Pluto (Sun Mars and Mercury also square Pluto this week), initiator of the Death Mysteries. Over the coming week Sun, Mars and Mercury move into Scorpio--and we open to the primal aliveness and potent magic of the Scorpio Season. From October 31 to November 7 we are in the Cross Quarter Threshold of Samhain, Day of the Dead and All Saints Day--where the veils thin between ourselves and our beloved Dead awakening our Ancestral Line.Mars remains in the Underworld--the beams of the Sun--until around November 23 where he rises as Morning Star in Scorpio, Warrior Initiate who has died to his old pattern of loving death and war more than life, coming into his full power as Peacemaker and Guardian of Mother Earth.Mercury and Jupiter both stationed direct last Sunday/Monday and we now have 6 planets moving direct--surrender to the flow of where life wants to take you. We look our monsters directly in the eye. We wrestle with our Beloved Angel of Death, surrender to his embrace and find our lust for life. It's all about the squares in the coming week with Sun, Mars and Mercury square Pluto this week and next week Venus square Neptune and Sun square Saturn. Squares compel us to learn through discomfort, edges, tension and finally release. What feels like a crisis is an opportunity to break free from stagnancy and change in big and lasting ways. Venus in Sagittarius at the Third Eye Chakra continues to open our oracular sight. The aquare to Neptune might precipitate a crisis or conflict where we must choose Truth sourced in Divine Insight and unconditional love rather than preferences sourced in fear of loss or change. Until we make this choice, confusion reigns and we cannot access the full personal power, aliviness and clarity offered to us in this Scorpio/Pluto season.
Wow~ Listen at the risk of shedding the veils that .001 global patriarchal society has been so determined to keep intact. The facades that shroud the Laws of Mother Earth, reflected in the living environment of human person, the rights of Nature, of the Divine Feminine largess that holds life, and breath together...Listen at the risk of being illumined~Support the show (http://paypal.me/wiseearth)
It's a blustery autumn morning and Tiny mouse is looking for a cozy warm house. Mother Earth finds him, picks him up and puts him in her cozy apron pocket but Tiny mouse quietly hops out when he sees an acorn too good to pass by. Mother Earth goes into her house, shuts the door and doesn't know that Tiny mouse isn't in her apron pocket. Oh, dear! How will Tiny mouse find a cozy house?We recommend this story for ages 3 - 6About the Author - Christy KlincewiczThis is my 20th year as a Waldorf Early Childhood Educator. My early experiences of exploring the wonder and beauty of the natural world and the reverent moments created by lighted candles on the Christmas tree and ringing a bell to invite the angels in, have shaped me to take up my work with young children.The imaginations impressed upon my soul from the taste of cold, clear mountain streams and peeping into the magical worlds hidden beneath their mossy banks have given me a rich pictorial language. I love creating stories where the world is good, kind friends help those in need and love weaves a mantle of safety and warmth. Often these stories arise when the children say, “Tell us a story.”Then I, too, listen as Mother of the Fairy Tales whispers in my ear.To learn more about Christy's work and to purchase her book “Fleetfoot Fox Catches a Cold”, visit www.rockinghorsestories.comTo discover more please visit wenurturecollective.com/stories-for-children

What CV19 has taught us about ourselves and the world that we live in today. How you can tune into your inner authority and use your intuition to guide your own ability to adapt and thrive. CV19 Truth Series: Protecting Your Health Freedom Why this plandemic is more like a war of the mind and the heart as we've been fractured with fear. How you can do the inner work and realize which programs are no longer serving you so that you can let them go. Why we've been slowly phasing away from nature collectively as a species as we continue to integrate the false belief that we are separate from it. How we can encourage the remembrance and reconnect to Mother Nature with these essential oils. What the process of "earthing" is and how it can help to destress our physical system.

[30:00] How Sound, Placement, and Geometric Shapes Enhance Essential Oils How Dr. Nick's company actually infuses energy into their essential oils starting with the ultrasonic plant extracting process. The current and new, organic craft spirits that they are using in their tinctures including pear, honey, lychee, coconut, and orange.

What frequency cards and hologram cards can do to enhance the ingredients in essential oils. OmniQard EMF Card [38:30] Why Our Sense of Smell is Important Dr. Nick's background in the pharmaceutical industry and how his health journey led him to holistic science and essential oils. What has happened in human history that has led us to forget to tune into our powerful sense of smell. Why he feels that chemical and fragrance companies have purposely designed body care and environmental cleaning products to teach us what a scent is supposed to smell like and this has dulled our senses. The immense amount of information within concentrated essential oils such as 1 drop of peppermint which is something equal to about 19 cups of peppermint tea steeped for 15 minutes. How heavy use of essential oils orally and breathing in vapors helped him heal his pneumonia very quickly years ago. Breaking down why oregano oil specifically helped him get better for pneumonia but it might not be a good idea for everyone. How starting to use pure essential oils helped Dr. Nick start to waken up other sensations in his body and mind when he first experimented with them.

A step-by-step process of how Essential Oil Wizardry dilutes their essential oils.

All of the different essential oil ingredients that are found in the Violet Chill Tincture and why it's beneficial for stress release.

Other places to place the essential oil such as above your lip or on the wrists. What Skull Cap is and why Dr. Nick really likes this ultrasonic tincture to use it to relax the nervous system and be less stressed. [1:20:30] Sharing Mother Nature's Wisdom in the 3D World Exploring the possibility that plants might have higher, 5D consciousness that we humans cannot see because of how we've been designed. How essential oils allow us to go into the world of the plants so that we can bring some of their wisdom to the 3D. The deeper harmonics that exist in nature and continuously shape our minds, bodies, and souls. 361 Luke Storey Focus Life Force Energy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pmviUS1Zac The importance of engaging more with Mother Nature and returning to these fundamental, simple practices that essential oils are a part of.

What wellness means to Dr. Nick now compared to his answer during his first interview with Josh. Power Quotes From The Show Why Our Senses Are Numb "With our modern way of living and as we continue to separate ourselves farther from nature, it has invited us to numb our senses. We're less keen on feeling the dirt on the bottom of our feet as we're walking throughout the field and absorbing the negative ions to help destress our physical system through the process of earthing which has been a natural process for many generations before us. The way that we engage with life today is affecting our biology every day as all of these types of technology can stun our senses and some of us are still learning how to take a deep inhalation and notice the different aromatic qualities when we're walking by a tree." - Dr. Nick Berry The Power of Grounding "We're now living a more indoor lifestyle in homes and offices in front of computers which affect our magnetic field but conscientiously engaging with nature, working with the breath, and being more present will awaken your senses. Your body is a natural resource that connects with all living things and the more that you can continue to harmonize and strengthen your physical vessel, the more your senses will heighten when you step into nature and take in all of these subtle cues as a result of it." - Dr. Nick Berry Building Greater Physical Intelligence with Essential Oils "As we continue to work with essential oils, one of the biggest gifts that they can give us is not just that instantaneous connection with nature, especially for people that are in urban settings or aren't able to engage with nature in the most desirable fashion but if we're really listening and we dedicate a practice towards working with the oils, they can inform us of a deeper awareness of our own physical body and our own aromatic senses." - Dr. Nick Berry Links From Today's Show Dr. Nick Berry breathwork.io BREATHE Essentials Pack 306 Dr. Nick Berry CV19 Truth Series: Protecting Your Health Freedom 290 Dan Brulé Trinity Blend OmniQard EMF Card Nassim Haramein Lightning In a Bottle Ascention Blend The Chemistry Behind How Febreze Works 361 Luke Storey Focus Life Force Energy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pmviUS1Zac Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co – Save 15% on your first order with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE'!

Financial ruin, divorce, and the death of a child drove Danette May away from a life that wasn't her own. Once she began stepping into her true calling to serve Mother Earth and humanity, abundance flowed in all its forms. She's here today to show you how you can do it too. You don't have to empty your bank account to unlock abundance. Danette's juiciest spiritual takeaways come from connecting to herself (soul writing, gratitude lists), nature (eating one green thing from Mother Earth every day), and cultivating conscious relationships at work and home (weekly meditations, intimacy dates, and so much more)! Lastly, Danette opens up about her deep-rooted reverence for cacao, its powerful heart-opening ingredients, and the intention behind her food brand, Earth Echo Foods. She inspires everyone to live out, eat, pray, love beyond the pages of a book, and harness the passion and power that's burning inside us all. We also talk about: Reaching rock bottom and growing into the woman she is today The spiritual energetics behind building a successful business Rewriting her money story Life strategies that support purpose and relationships Consistently showing up in partnership The premise of Embracing Abundance and inspiration behind Earth Echo Foods The transformational health and spiritual benefits of cacao Sponsors: Flo Living | Use code “ALMOST30” for 15% off all products and programs at https://www.floliving.com/ (floliving.com) Daily Harvest | Use code “ALMOST30” to get $25 off your first box athttp://www.daily-harvest.com/ ( www.daily-harvest.com) LMNT: Claim a free LMNT Sample Pack (you just need to cover the cost of shipping) by visiting http://drinklmnt.com/Almost30 (DrinkLMNT.com/Almost30) Joybird | Visit https://joybird.com/podcast/?utm_source=adresultsmedia&utm_medium=podcast&utm_term=acq_retail&utm_content=almost30&utm_campaign=podcast_arm_2021_almost30 (joybird.com/almost30) for 30% off your purchase Resources: Read: https://danettemay.com/embraceabundancebook/ (Embrace Abundance: A Proven Path to Better Health, More Wealth, and Deeply Fulfilling Relationships) Website: https://danettemay.com/embraceabundancebook/ (danettemay.com) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thedanettemay/ (@thedanettemay) Join: Podcast Accelerator Program - Join our FREE, one-week immersive program to learn how to grow and monetize your podcast.
