Breathe, my love, And bring your attention inside. Deep into your body, And away from the tornado of anger spinning in your mind. Nestle safely into the silence here, As you watch from afar, The energy anger creates. The constant chatter of the mind, The tight clenching of your muscles, The rising bubbles of red lava bursting from your skin. Observe the anger, dear one, And recognize your distance from it right now. Let it roar on outside of you, As you breathe yourself deep into the comfort of your stillness. JOURNAL PROMPTS: Before Bed Why are you angry? What are you finding underneath the anger? In the Morning What does your anger have to teach you? What are 2 things you're grateful for today?

The Search Warrant still hasn't been executed and Baldwin is still in possession of his phone. On January 7, 2022, the Los Angeles Times and other outlets reported statements by the Santa Fe Sheriff's Department and the District Attorney saying that they are still working to execute the search warrant and obtain Alec Baldwin's phone. Not to be outdone Alec Baldwin took to Instagram to say that all reports that he hasn't complied with the search warrant are lies and he fully intends to comply….later. I can't wait to hear what you think of this. Key Take-Aways? Alec Baldwin's cellphone has not to be taken by Santa Fe Police subject to their Search Warrant and reports that he hasn't turned over his phone are true. Alec Baldwin's legal team can ensure that Law Enforcement properly executes any Search Warrant, but also he can comply and then fight the evidence obtained in court later. Baldwin will not stop talking about this case and it isn't helping him. What happens next? The Search Warrant will be executed in New York as the investigation continues. There may or may not be criminal charges in this case. The Civil lawsuits are ongoing.

A thank you note benefits both the recipient and the writer. It reminds the writer of blessings received, and it motivates the recipient to bless others again. A written thank you note is a great way to deepen your relationship with someone. Last year's “Make it a Relational New Years Resolution” I first mentioned this a year ago in episode 087, “Make it a Relational New Years Resolution.” It was about resolving to do something kind, caring, or thoughtful for people during the course of the year to the extent you would receive a thank you note for what you did. I'll have a link to this episode at the bottom of the show notes. I was ready to move on today with another relational resolution for this year to talk to you about. But before doing that, I thought we should look back at the results of last year's relational resolution. Before the future, consider the past and present. I was surprised by what I learned when I did this for myself. I'll share what I discovered because it can help you in considering a way to add depth to your relationships here in the New Year. Why a written thank you note? By way of review, to receive a written “thank you” note, you had to do something pretty meaningful for someone to make the effort to show their appreciation in this way. For our purposes, it had to be in writing. Electronic communication didn't count, nor did verbal expressions of gratitude. In the age we live in, where electronic communication is the norm, for someone to use older technology like writing a note, requires a lot more of that person. After I received a thank you note or card last year, I read and dated them, and then placed them in a folder. Observations about the 2021 “thank you” cards I received From a scrap of paper to a linen parchment card, no two were the same. I've gotten identical birthday cards and Christmas cards, but no duplicate thank you notes. I received 5 thank you notes that mentioned appreciation for this podcast. I doubt if any of you have a podcast, but I'm sure a lot of you are doing things you enjoy that benefit other people. Several couples, and two single people we invited for dinner at our house, sent us written thank you notes. Thank you notes for birthdays and high school graduation gifts were the next most common. Two missionary couples who stayed with us a week to 10 days or so thanked us in writing. A friend of ours was sick with Covid, so Janet picked up groceries for her family and I delivered them. We received thank you notes from three teenage boys, all for high school graduation gifts. And they were most tender expressions of gratitude. Their parents raised them well! One person, a donor to our Caring for Others ministry, wrote at least 3 thank you notes over the course of last year. Here he was sending donations to us, and at the same time thanking us for our ministry in quite specific terms about what he was grateful for in what we do. A sampling of thank you notes received I feel a little uncomfortable reading these because they paint Janet and me in a good light, which you would think would happen in a thank you note. A more well-rounded picture would come from complaints people have about us. But my only purpose in sharing them is to give you ideas of what you can do to impact the lives of people, to make a positive difference, to the point they will go to the trouble of thanking you in writing. A secondary purpose is to give you ideas of HOW to thank people, as you listen to how people thanked Janet and me last year for one thing or another. Here's the first one. Just a quick note to say “Thanks” for your friendship over the years! Knowing you guys and being able to LEAN on you at times gives us confidence in His Grace!… Mostly I just wanted to make sure we get something in your 2021 pile of thank you notes.” ~ L. & J. O.K., so this is clergy appreciation month! Although I consider you a friend you are also my clergy phone friend, and I appreciate your Biblical teaching and related challenges. ORA at work! ~ October V.A. Do you remember ORA? Observe. Reflect. Act. ORA. You have earned a thank you note! Thank you for teaching your listeners about how to care for others. It is so encouraging to listen to you each week. I especially like the one-take-home point for the week. I look forward to actionable items to care for others. ~ D.P. Gratitude expressed for the unexpected We are so grateful for how you are reaching people around the world with your podcast and are happy to help it grow! We are also so grateful that you have been willing to connect with our son (18-year-old high school senior) during this challenging time of a teenage boy's life. He comes home smiling and seems more content. Thank you. ~ K.P. On the back of envelope: I forgot to tell you. This note is from my Grandma's collection! She always wrote thank you notes! Here's a note from a businessperson to me, as her customer. The following is from the designer of our new website from last September: John, thank you for trusting me to redo your website. It was such a fun project…I love being able to support others doing important work for Christ. Thank you for your loyalty over the years and I am so glad you stumbled upon my ….training video a few years ago. :) ~ L.D. Thanks so much for making my birthday special. The cake was delicious and I was touched by your thoughtfulness. I love my tomato knife and can't wait to try it. Thanks again. ~ D. B. Dear John and Janet, Thank you so much for including us in your family lunch last week. You are so kind and generous. Blessings to you two! ~ J. & K. Dear John and Janet Thanks for the beautiful card and generous gift of money we really appreciate it. We will use it for gas to ride down there. Thanking God for both of you. ~B.R.and S.R. Dear Grandma and Grandpa, Thank you so much for coming down to my graduation and for your generous gift. I really appreciate all the ways you've supported me and spent time with me throughout my life, like all the times I've stayed at your house and the trips to the library with Grandpa, and the cookies Grandma and I have baked. Thank you always for being there for me. Maybe sometime you can come visit me at the University of South Carolina and we can get some cheese curds and get into an argument about who I should vote for. I hope your trip back went well - see you on Zoom! Love, Nathan So what does all this mean for YOU? How can you use what you've heard today to add more depth to the relationships in YOUR life? Start by remembering that a written thank you note is simply a marker of the positive impact you had in someone's life. That's the point of this relational resolution, not the thank you note itself. Writing a thank you note gets our eyes off ourselves to focus on a blessing we received. One important thing to remember is not to expect people to thank you for the good you do for them. Often they won't. But you do good things for people anyway, because it's the right thing to do. It's not about you; it's about them. Doing good for others is living out Romans 12, and reflecting the character of God. With Jesus living in us, we are equipped and empowered to be the person God created us to be. We truly were made for this. We are made in His image and Jesus was often doing good things for people, with no expectation that he would be thanked for it. In fact, I'll have to look into this later, but I don't recall any stories in the Bible where people thanked Jesus for blessing them. If any of you can think of an example, please let me know. If writing a handwritten thank you note is a challenge for you, ask God for help. Ask him for help in remembering the blessings you received, and who were the people God used to bless you. Ask him for help in what to say and how to say it. When we ask God for help like this it won't be hard, If you have young children, and where appropriate, post the notes on your refrigerator or where they can see them. Share them with your kids as they come in. When you write one, and before you mail it, tell your kids what you are doing and why you are doing it. Then read it to them. Have them put the note in the envelope, seal it, and place the stamp on the envelope. Teach them by example. For me, our kids are grown and have kids of their own. But when I die I want them to display a board at my funeral with all the thank you notes I received. Skip the pics of summer picnics and faded Christmas gatherings when I was in my 20s and had hair on my head. Display the thank you notes. Maybe that will encourage someone. Here's the main point I hope you remember from today's episode A thank you note benefits both the writer and recipient. It reminds the writer of blessings received and motivates the recipient to continue reflecting the character of God by blessing others. These are two great benefits of a handwritten thank you note. I'd love to hear any thoughts you have about today's episode, and any thank you notes you received. Closing I closing, I hope your thinking was stimulated by today's show, to both reflect and to act by doing good for people to the extent they thank you in writing for it. Ephesians 2:10 tells us we were made for this. It reads “For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Well, that's all for today. I look forward to connecting with you again next week when I will suggest another relational resolution for this current year. I can't wait to share it with you! Goodbye for now.

As we near the completion of the Meditation in Life series, we learn in this episode, in order to be successful in meditation, we have to disown externality and observe any subtle occurrences of the mind as we delve deeper into silence. Once silence is achieved, we should not attempt to describe it or remember it, rather just receive it!Want to catch up on the first year of Meditation in Life?

The best way to have a Merry Christmas this year is to make it a Mary Christmas. Do what Mary, the mother of Jesus did. Observe, reflect, and ponder the joy of God saving us from ourselves. Listen in to learn how. In the midst of all the busyness and activity of the holiday season, I've been thinking about how we can all enjoy Christmas a little better this year. For me, I find it restful to think back to that very first Christmas over 2,000 years ago. The first Christmas Most of you know the story pretty well from the Bible. Joseph and Mary are in Bethlehem to be counted for a census. Mary is about to give birth, but there's no lodging available. The town is packed with visitors. Tradition has it that Jesus was born in a stable because Luke's gospel makes reference to Jesus lying in a manager. What's more likely though, is that he was born in one of the many shallow caves all around Bethlehem. I was there in the ‘80s on a Holy Land tour and saw several. Plenty of room for the manger, but the shepherds who visited probably gathered around the entrance to the small cave. All of this is the backdrop to the climax of the story, where in Luke 2:19, we find this most soothing and reflective description of Mary, …But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. I'm convinced that if we viewed our Christmas as Mary viewed hers, our hearts would be as calm as hers. Instead of a M-e-r-r-y Christmas, we can have a M-a-r-y Christmas. Mary observes To make it a Mary Christmas we start by observing, as Mary did. I can picture her taking note of the humble housing her baby, the son of God, is been born into. So in keeping with Mary's own humble origins. Being a first-time mother, I imagine she observed a sense of inadequacy within herself. On the one hand, “how am I going to do this? I've never been a mother before?” And on the other hand, “I know I can count on God to show me how to do this. After all, this story is not about me; it's about him.” As any mother would, Mary watches her baby, and those relating to him. There's her husband Joseph. This good man who led her on the 95-mile journey on foot from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Then there were the shepherds who came in from the fields excited to see what the angels told them would be lying in a manger. The word “but” in “… but Mary”, indicates a contrast between her and the shepherds. How different they are from her. She's a city girl, while they are people of the land. They live outside, she lives inside. A Mary Christmas includes everyone The shepherds were strangers to Mary. They left their sheep in the fields to go see what the angel described to them that they would find in the manger The shepherds were more the extroverted types, telling people in Bethlehem what the angels told them and what they saw, both from the “great company of angels” and what they saw in the manger. Mary gives a more measured and introverted response in her “treasuring up” and “pondering” about the birth of Jesus. How wonderful of God to use people so different from each other to further his purposes. Extroverts and introverts, and all people in-between, have a place at the table when it comes to praising God for sending his son Jesus to save us all. I wonder about you? What are you observing concerning Christmas this year? Is there anything new that God might want you to notice? Anything external in the world around you? Anything internal within your mind and heart. Mary reflects Having made observations around her and within her, Mary reflects. As Luke puts it, she … treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.. What are “all these things” that she treasured and pondered? For starters, I imagine Mary treasured the time when the angel came to tell her she was going to give birth to Jesus, and all the implications of this miracle. And now what Gabriel told her has now come to pass. Another thing I suspect she treasured was going to see her Aunt Elizabeth and what Mary shared with her at the beginning of her pregnancy and the end of Elizabeth's. The three months they spent together were priceless. And then, how could she not reflect on the joy she feels having just given birth to Jesus? And the joy of being used by God to channel this great blessing into the whole world. I bet she also treasured and pondered all the possibilities of what's going to happen next, not just for her personally, but for the rest of humanity. How about you? What does your Christmas cause you to reflect upon? Looking back in God's involvement in your life, what can you treasure and think about? What could be the possible opportunities in your near and distant future you can treasure? Mary acted Finally, notice the action words in Luke's description, two verb phrases in …But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. “Treasure up” and “ponder in one's heart.” What action could God be calling you to engage in, as Mary did? What would you do well to "treasure up?” Are there things you could ponder in your heart? To take action like this might mean finding a quiet place and just sitting and thinking about the important things of life. To an outside observer it may appear you're doing nothing. Just sitting there staring off into space. But in actuality it could be the most important action you take all day. The best Christmas gift Like Mary, we can act by reflecting not only about what we love and appreciate about God, but also about what God thinks of us. I love this quote by Andrew Farley I came across recently, “If there was one Christmas gift I could give all of us is, it would be the gift of knowing Jesus delights in you.” I don't think we do enough of this, pondering what God thinks about us. Imagine a God who loves us so much he sent his son away for 33 years to pay the penalty for something we did. 33 years of voluntary separation because of his love for all of us. This is something we would do well to think about often and reflect upon in our hearts as Mary did. It would be good preparation for heaven, where we have no to-do lists. Nothing to accomplish, nothing to get done so we can move on to the next thing. Where we are never bored. Where our time will be taken up with marveling at all the wonders of God in its many manifestations. Taking action like this will give us a glimpse of heaven every now and then and give us something to look forward to. And it will certainly help to make it a Mary Christmas this year. Here's the main point I hope you remember from today's episode To have a merry Christmas this year, make it a Mary Christmas. Do what she did. Observe what's happening in and around you. Reflect upon the meaning of what you see. And then act by pondering the joy of God entering into our world to save us from ourselves. This will guarantee you a Merry/Mary Christmas for sure. I'd love to hear any thoughts you have about today's episode. Just send them to me in an email to john [at] caringforothers [dot] org. Or you can share your thoughts in the “Leave a Comment” box at the bottom of the show notes. Closing I hope your thinking was stimulated by today's show, to observe, reflect, and act.

Advent is a time on the liturgical calendar that we observe with the global Church. The word comes from the Latin “Adventus” which means “Coming”. Thus, it is a time to slow down and remember the First Coming of Jesus and to look forward in anticipation for the Second Coming. During the weeks leading up to Christmas every year, our spiritual family at MAPS joins with millions of Christians from around the world to read the prophetic scriptures together in celebration of the virgin birth and in anticipation of the triumphant return of the King who is to come. In this episode, we dive into the WHYS behind Advent, analyze some church history, and examine how Christians have observed Advent since the first century.

Why do seasons change? Why does it get darker earlier in the winter and why is there more daylight in the summer? Why are some seasons warm and some are cold and icy? Why do some places not have seasonal changes at all? We're learning about solstices, equinoxes and seasons in this episode of But Why. Our guide is John O'Meara, Chief Scientist at Hawaii's Keck Observatory. And kids around the world tell us what they like best about their favorite season. Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slide | Transcript The solstices are on December 21 and 22 and June 20 or 21, those are when the earth is leaning as far away from the sun or as close to the sun as it gets. Whether the solstice is your winter or summer solstice depends on whether you are in the northern or southern hemisphere. The two equinoxes - when both hemispheres are getting about the same amount of solar energy are on March 21 or 22 or September 22 or 23. If you want to visualize the solstice, John O'Meara has an experiment. Find a ball and a flashlight. Have someone hold the flashlight; you hold the ball. Spin the ball around and around, the way the earth would rotate in a day. You can even draw a dot on the ball to mark where you are. Now lean the ball a little bit away from the light and keep spinning. Remember the earth is tilted on its axis (23.5 degrees to be exact!). Observe how the light falls differently on the dot. It forces the sunlight to be brighter on some spots and darker in others even during the day because of the way the light falls on the earth. In some parts of the world there aren't big seasonal changes. Those places are near the equator. The equator is a line around the middle of the earth, where the sphere is at its fattest or widest. While the poles get more or less light because of the tilt of the earth, the middle stays centered, so people near the equator have about the same length of daylight all year and don't have as many seasonal shifts in light and temperature. The amount of sunlight in any given location makes a big impact on how cold or hot it is. But there are other factors that determine the climate (long-term weather trends) where you live, too. Differences in the landscape, global wind systems, proximity (how close or far you are) from the ocean, and precipitation patterns also determine what the seasons will feel like where you live.
The 5D Academy with Zarathustra explores universal wisdom to foster total freedom from suffering in all areas of your life; health, wealth, love, and self.Each Academy podcast contains valuable insights and takeaways to become the best version of yourself and create an authentic, fulfilling life. Zarathustra transmits 5th Dimensional Quantum frequencies in each episode with transformational tools while discussing different topics to help you maintain this new frequency in your daily life.Zarathustra has created a practical system of transmitting the truth to his audience allowing transformation and freedom from suffering. Spiritual development requires an open heart. It is virtually impossible for a seeker to advance to higher consciousness if they don't love themselves. The belief system which has been ingrained in our cellular memory from childhood that we are not good enough results in a conditioned mind. The conditioned mind holds the false belief that there is something missing in our lives, that we are incomplete, that we need to gain something in order to become happy and whole, which is not true. After a life time of searching, Zarathustra has blended a practical system of Eastern and Western methods and techniques to help the Academy members to free themselves from anxiety, negative thoughts, lack of self-love and self-acceptance and destructive emotional patterns through a systematic way to raise your vibration to 5D Vibrational Frequency, which enables you to live a vibrant life of freedom and happiness.The Key Elements To Freedom:Zarathustra recognizes continuity and consistency are the key elements to freedom. In order to help you achieve your spiritual goals, it's best to have a highly effective spiritual practice, free of dogmas, false beliefs and superstition that helps you raise your vibration to 5D Vibrational Frequency as well as the ability to maintain this newly found higher level of consciousness. This translates to a life filled with inner peace, self-love and happiness which is the goal of every spiritual seeker.New knowledge and benefits are gained with each replay.

While many people understand that native plants are important, there's often a gap in understanding what pollinators rely on them. Understanding how to attract, observe and identify these essential insects is vital to our role in helping promote biological diversity within the species.

66 - Observe and Deduce Second part about the book Think Like Sherlock: Creatively Solve Problems, Think with Clarity, Make Insightful Observations & Deductions, and Develop Quick & Accurate Instincts by Peter Hollins. Sherlock Holmes and Observational Skills – Sherlock was able to solve crimes and problems with his keen observation skills and the power of deduction. Five Observational Skills Become a more detailed person, which also means remembering what you observe. Give 100% of your focus which is hard to do in our busy world. Notice the difference from baseline or the last time you saw it. Understand people's self-perceptions and what is important to them. What are they saying or wearing that pushes that perception? What goes against it? See the big picture. If we want to become more detail-oriented, that we just have to do a better job of paying attention to the little things that we tend to overlook Start with small quizzes about people in the room with you Once you have the big observations down, look to more minor details. Being observational before a crisis can save your life. Pay More Attention to Others – Notice what they are wearing and any clues about them. What are they saying clearly? What are smaller and more hidden messages they might not want you to see? Be Better at Deduction – Deducationis reverse storytelling. What you can you read into the observations you made? Be Impartial with Distance – When you are involved in the object of your observations, you can bias your own judgments. Do your own research to understand a situation properly.

It's time for some hope surgery! (If, Wait, Then: The Surgery of Hope originally ran in March of this year. I'm bringing it back, with music from Tommy Walker in preparation for this week's Tuesday's With Tata episode, which will come late due to our crazy weekend! Look for it later this week!) Life can be very difficult, and sometimes it seems like we're all alone and without hope in a dark world. But here's a few minutes about the self-brain surgery technique that will help you find hope and see the light again! Scriptures mentioned in this episode Habakkuk 1:2 “How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen?” Isaiah 30:18 (NIV) 18 Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! Habakkuk 2:3 “Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. Isaiah 1:19 IF you are willing and obedient, (THEN) you will eat the best from the land Deuteronomy 28:1 IF you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, (THEN) the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. Daniel 10 (NIV) 2 At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. 3 I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over. 4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, 5 I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. 6 His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude. 7 I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. 8 So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. 9 Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground. 10 A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. 11 He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling. 12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. 14 Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” Romans 4:18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed. Hosea 12:6 Therefore, return to your God, Observe kindness and justice, And wait for your God continually. Psalm 27:14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord Psalm 33:20, 21 NIV “We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.” Psalm 33:3, 4 NLT “Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does.” Romans 15:13 NLT “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Psalm 27:14 ESV “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Psalm 46:1-3 CSB “God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble. Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas, though its water roars and foams and the mountains quake with its turmoil. Selah” Psalm 121:1,2 NIV “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Listener did this- look for help!) Romans 8:37 NIV “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” We will conquer the gap with self-brain surgery of doing, seeking, praying, trusting, pressing in, looking for help. Hope-tox doesn't inject itself. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Ephesians 3: “14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” John to Know, James to Grow bible study Books mentioned in this episode Almost Everything: Notes on Hope by Anne Lamott I've Seen the End of You by Dr. Lee Warren Check out the prayer wall!

Today's episode is my take on hiding prices. And it's a hard no for me. While it can be done ethically, tune in to hear the other side and some prompting questions to consider. It's not as black and white as you might think.

Much love. LEGION SPONSOR: I'd like to thank the sponsor of this podcast, the #1 brand of all-natural sports supplements in the world - Legion Athletics. If you are in the market for adding supplements, I highly recommend Legion.

Go to buylegion.com and use the code ANNIE at checkout to save 20% on your first order, and you'll get double Legion reward/loyalty points if you're an existing customer." My Name is Annie Miller and I've never hidden pricing from my customers. I received a series of questions from a follower a while back. These question boxes turned into a DM conversation. And now I am podcasting about it. I swear content is a never ending cycle. The question box started with “Should you avoid telling price over text / message? Only on calls?” Before we get into WHY I am against withholding price, and how I get my clients to feel comfortable having their prices for all the world to see, I want to make clear that you're not a bad person if you hide pricing. And you're not stupid for using the logic you've likely been taught. My hope to offer an alternative. Maybe one you haven't considered. It's just like me not using sales calls. Plenty of my clients use sales calls and ENJOY THEM. My job is to make those as efficient and natural for my clients as possible. That, for me, includes revealing the price before the call. The call is a confirmation of the sale, not where the sale is actually initiated and made. We'll get to that later. So, if at the end of this episode you still want to hide your pricing, I respect that. Because I am, as I say, for YOUR BIZ, YOUR WAY. Not your biz, my way. ;) I simply want to make sure you're aware of your options. As I said, I plan to cover two things: Why I encourage having prices listed or at least starting prices listed.Exact methods I use with my clients to make that a comfortable, natural, and joyous situation Moving forward, I am going to tell you what I tell my FitsPROs and biz clients - sell and create content from a consumer point of view. You have more market research available to you in the way YOU OPERATE. And if you can learn to observe yourself in consumer settings, you will learn so much. Why did you make that purchase? What did you think it would bring you? Why did you share that post? What did it make you feel? Why do you scroll past certain ads and get sucked in by others. Observe your own psychology and behaviors online. Become a student of the consumer. After all that is who you're creating content for and selling to. Now, let us. Apply that to price withholding. I am a particular type of buyer. If we can acknowledge that bias first, that might be helpful. I want the facts. I want to feel informed, and then to make my decision based on all the info...

Just seeing, acknowledging, and allowing everything to exist as it is. Observing without evaluating is a deeply restful & energizing state to exist within. Use it as a way to create a gentler, clearer, more spacious now. Sometimes just knowing that you don't need to judge or hold an opinion of yourself or any moment in time is enough to bring you into your peace.

A Lifetime Doing Nothing by Ian McCrorie. "In my experience, all our problems do indeed stem from this hyperactive and delusional thinking we have acquired over time. There is a way to eradicate the light-speed, blind reactions and the habitual confusion. The way is very simple. It boils down to just two words: do nothing. That s it. Do nothing. Sit quietly in a room alone and do nothing. Watch the monkey mind and do not try to fix it or eliminate it or drown it out or engage it. This is doing non-doing. Observe the mind, on autopilot as usual, screaming editorial comments from the sidelines like some frenzied play-by-play announcer and do nothing about it. Don't turn the monologue into a dialogue. Do nothing. 'Nothing to see here, folks. Let s keep it moving.'" interview with Ian McCrorie 2021 1 hours 53 minutes Listen to Streaming Audio Video copyright, 2021 Pariyatti 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' as a book and eBook can be found here.

Have you ever considered using a technique or framework to solve a critical task a lot more effectively? The boys discussed a famed technique called the OODA Loop invented by a legendary United States Airforce fighter pilot John Boyd. OODA is an acronym for Observe, Orient, Decide, Act! The boys have a quick discussion on how they've implemented this process throughout their professions as well as in their personal life. They dissect each step and share the varying methods that they commonly implement. More importantly, the biggest gains in using this process is the ability to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations, increasing your rate of execution, and thriving in total unpredictability. Please share your thoughts about this episode and more importantly, we hope this encourages our listeners to spend some time thinking about what works best for them when they have to reignite their passion. We encourage all of our listeners to reach out to us with your own stories. We love reading your insights, feedback, and how we can add more value to your day.

Color is the topic today. Did you know that color is an energy vitamin? I found that sentence in the book, Feel Better In Five Minutes by Amanda Hainline. And if you've been listening to the show, you know that she was my last episode. I wanted to talk about this whole idea of color because this sentence, ‘Color Is An Energy Vitamin' is the title of one of the chapters in Amanda Hainline's book. I interviewed and released Amanda's interview on Thanksgiving Day in the US. I noticed the episode got quite a few downloads, but I think it's worthy of even more. You can listen to the episode here: www.MindfulnessMode.com/713. Amanda is so vibrant, so upbeat, and so knowledgeable about many things when it comes to gaining control over your emotions and feeling better. After all, feeling better, has everything to do with our emotions. That's why I wanted to talk to you about this topic of color and how it can affect us. Listen & Subscribe on: iTunes / Stitcher / Podbean / Overcast / Spotify Colors For Energy Did you know that colors correlate to different emotions? We are naturally drawn to colors that benefit us energetically. Some of us benefit from bright, vibrant colors, and some of us are naturally drawn to the more muted tones. Colors can be used in healing. I encourage you to get Amanda's book, Feel Better In Five Minutes, because it has so much interesting content about learning to deal with your emotions. The subtitle of the book is, ‘An Empowering Guide To Gain Control Over Your Emotions. Clothing Choices Dressing with certain colors can help your mood. Observe your mood when you're around certain colors. I am well aware that for me, there are certain colors that make me feel really upbeat, and energetic, and other colors that sort of drag me down. Take the next few days and think about what colors empower you, what colors agitate you, what colors drain energy from you. Pay attention to what colors you're naturally drawn to and then begin to surround yourself with those colors. A Mug? When you identify the colors that make you feel good, get a cup or a mug in that color and drink from it. Eating foods of that color will incorporate that color into your body. Amanda also said that sunlight is a great way to get the full spectrum of color into your energy system and clear your energy. I think it's such an interesting concept that color is an energy vitamin. Because even though I never thought of it that way before I realized that yes, color is an energy vitamin. Win With Color Because color is such a powerful tool and holds the energetic vibrations of emotions, it makes sense that we should use it to our advantage whenever possible, like the clothes we wear. She says it's important to note that sometimes you may need a color that does not look particularly great on you. And so if this is the case, wear that color as a small accessory, or a belt or shoes or whatever. A Chill Day? Think about what you have to do during your day. Is there an important meeting on your calendar? Or are you having a chill day? Take stock of how you're feeling? Are you confident, bold, depressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Refer to the color and emotions charts that she has included in this book to see what fits you best. If you're having a big meeting and feel like you're lacking confidence, try wearing something red or orange to bring on the power to boost you. Relax With Color If you are relaxing after a long week, cuddle up in some soft off white, pink or grey loungewear for the morning. If you're not sure what colors to wear, just open up your closet and see what colors you're attracted to that day and let your intuition guide you. Again, colors correlate to different emotions. The book includes a chart of all the different colors and how they correlate to different emotions. Color Charts ‘Feel Better In Five Minutes' has QR codes because there are some charts and some different kinds of images that she was not able to include in the book, so she's included QR codes. You can simply aim your device at the QR codes and you'll see the charts and images that are not included in the book. Vibrancy When I started talking to Amanda at the interview time, I noticed right away that she was just as vibrant as she appeared on the front cover of her book. So again, her book is called feel better in five minutes: An Empowering guide to gain control over your emotions. Use these suggestions so you can feel better, get more energy, and feel more calm. So thanks again for listening to mindfulness mode. Bye now.

Today, Commander Divine talks to Brett Miller about his research on Parkinson's Disease, and his holistic approach to treatment of the disease at his gym 110 Fitness. Brett is a U.S. Army veteran. He served as a combat medic trainer for special operations and oversaw the construction and development of the DEPMEDS for the United States Army. Brett is passionate about adaptive fitness and inspiring the best in everyone he meets. The mission of his practice is to set a new standard for the world in the “fight back” against Parkinson's Disease through holistic and fitness based approaches. He also is determined to break down all barriers for adults and children limited by disease or disability by sharing his exceptional mental and physical training and conditioning experience. Key Takeaways: We can learn a lot about who we are when we face a life-threatening experience and endure trauma—Brett's early childhood experiences compelled him to become an Army medic and continue a life dedicated to helping others. Warning signs of intense PTSD are often first picked up by friends and family. Brett encourages those close to veterans to be vigilant about watching for those signs including withdrawing from socialization, acting more closed off than usual and uncharacteristically quiet. Over 6 million people worldwide are affected by Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's research is advancing understanding of the disease. Early detection is key, and with most types of Parkinson's, severe symptoms can be staved off and minimized with the proper treatment. Researchers are still searching for a cure. The OODA loop (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act), a four-step approach to decision-making that has the ability to improve decisiveness, time management and overall organization. It focuses on filtering available information, putting it in context and quickly making the most appropriate decision while also understanding that changes can be made as more data becomes available. A holistic, varied approach to wellness is key to managing, and in some cases overcoming, any type of physical or mental illness—Brett's work with patients includes the basic cornerstones of health: nutrition, exercise, sleep, and hydration. His patients practice movement and mindfulness in numerous ways, including shadow boxing, HIIT workouts, water training, rope climbing, tai chi, qigong, yoga, art therapy, drumming, and ballroom dancing.

“0 Lord, Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul.” — Lamentations 3:58 Observe how positively the prophet speaks. He doth not say, “I hope, I trust, I sometimes think, that God hath pleaded the causes of my soul”; but he speaks of it as a matter of fact not to be disputed. “Thou hast […]
Today, Commander Divine talks to Dr Amishi Jha about her work as a neuroscientist, studies on mindfulness training, and her recent book Peak Mind: Find Your Focus, Own Your Attention, Invest 12 Minutes a Day. Dr. Amishi Jha is a professor of psychology at the University of Miami. She serves as the Director of Contemplative Neuroscience for the Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative, which she co-founded in 2010. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California-Davis and postdoctoral training at the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center at Duke University. Dr. Jha's work has been featured at NATO, the World Economic Forum, and The Pentagon. She has received coverage in The New York Times, NPR, TIME, Forbes and more. Key Takeaways: Neuroplasticity, the ability for our brains to change and grow new neurons, is possible at any age. When our minds are functioning at their peak, we have full control of three types of attention that Dr. Amishi describes. Taking a bird's eye view allows us to observe where our attention is. Focus is going to wander, but through practice we are able to bring the "flashlight" back to where we want it. Multi-tasking is a myth. Our brains are able to switch quickly between tasks, but that depletes energy. Sometimes it is a necessary part of life, but mono-tasking is much more efficient, and should be the goal whenever possible. Mindfulness training is transformative. Changes in brain activity are visible in functional MRis, but it's important to remember that just as changes in the body take time, changes in the brain take time. In Dr. Amishi Jha's studies, she saw results beginning after four weeks of training. Links: Amishi Jha - Pay attention like your life depends on it. Instagram Twitter Linkedin
