Understand Emotions and the Consequences of Transference with long time listener Nicky Sciortino Have you ever been mad at someone who hadn't done anything to you? Or perhaps felt that someone was upset at you for no reason? Everyone handles negative emotions differently — some people respond with forgiveness and mindfulness. However, sometimes we hold those negative emotions inside us. If we don't  , we pass them onto others and get angry at people who don't deserve it. This phenomenon is called transference.   In this episode, Nicky Sciortino discusses transference and its significance in our lives. She also encourages us to examine our emotions and acknowledge if we have committed transference before. Accepting ourselves is only half of the battle. Nicky guides us into finding solutions to avoid redirecting our negative emotions and feelings to others.   If you want to understand emotions, and reconnect with your authentic self, stay tuned to this episode!   This episode is brought to you by...

She loved listening to the podcast, especially during the pandemic, where she couldn't talk to her friends as much. Listening to the show was like getting to have girl talk with her friends. About Transference Transference refers to redirecting the feelings you have from one person to another individual. You know you're on the receiving end because you can't find a reasonable explanation for the other person's behavior. Nicky experienced transference when she joined a yoga class led by an upset instructor. Tune in to the full episode to hear the story! Nicky went back to what she learned from Don Miguel Ruiz's The Four Agreements. One of these lessons is don't take anything personally. Projecting is different from transference. It refers to attributing your negative emotions and qualities to another person. Nicky's Experience of Committing Transference Nicky had a student who kept getting under her skin. She can't figure out why. After Nicky's yoga class, a student roughly 30 years her senior would frequently ask her basic questions about the class, or for personal advice. Instead of reacting negatively, Nicky took the time to examine herself and understand emotions. When you lash out at someone, you're expressing your pent-up negative emotions. It's your responsibility to understand why you react the way you do. Not Everyone Can Be a Teacher People practice yoga to feel nourished, filled, and connected to their bodies and community. It's not a space to be criticized or dismissed. Yoga teachers wield a lot of power and influence. Therefore, they carry a lot of responsibility. We should focus on quality instead of the number of yoga instructors. Yoga teachers must actively pursue their yogic path to teach a more profound type of practice. Understand Emotions, Be Aware of Transference The topic of transference reminded Tessa of Ram Dass's quote: "I would like my life to be a statement of love and compassion—and where it isn't, that's where my work lies.” Examining ourselves if we committed transference is difficult and scary because it makes us vulnerable. Yoga teachers should be aware when they redirect negative emotions to others. Many tools can help you avoid transference. Peel back the layers of the onion, understand emotions, and scrub yourself! When you're a recipient of transference, remember that it's the other person's issue and not yours. Continue Reflecting on Ourselves It's crucial to continue examining ourselves and help others do the same. Take accountability and invite in that compassion and self-study all at once. There may not be a pot at the end of the rainbow, but it's beautiful to see ourselves evolve through time. Working on ourselves allows us to live an authentic life. In unraveling our embedded thoughts and beliefs, we become fully present.   5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode   [13:35] “...we're all works in progress. We all make mistakes — and how do you learn from it?”   [21:43] “When you're able to take care of your own demons, they don't become triggers anymore.”   [22:34] “Whenever somebody makes you angry, remember that they're an empty boat. That anger exists inside of you. It's your job to understand those triggers. It's your job to not be the reactor.”   [24:42] “If people were more conscious and awake about their own personal experience, we wouldn't have as many unfavorable interactions with other people.”   [37:46] “The whole purpose of doing all of this is to unravel all of those embedded thoughts and beliefs and transform them into exactly what is present.”   About Nicky   Nicky Sciortino is an author, illustrator, and yoga instructor. She wrote the book Finding Yourself in the World that follows one puzzle piece's journey to find its unique gifts and talents.   Nicky first tried yoga to prevent injury as she was training for the marathon. She later fell in love with the practice as it complimented every aspect of her life. It helped her prepare mentally during jiu-jitsu competitions and made her know her body better.   She became a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) in 2017. Since then, she has taught yoga in different venues, from studios to military bases! Nicki is also passionate about applying sports medicine and yoga philosophy during class to help her students feel mentally and physically better.

Never hold a thought, never drop the Thread. Ram Dass' Roommate Story from 'Changing Lenses'"If you would like to meet your roommate, just try to sit inside yourself for a while in complete solitude and silence. You have the right; it's your inner domain. But instead of finding silence, you're going to listen to incessant chatter: “Why am I doing this? I have more important things to do. This is a waste of time. There's nobody in here but me. What's this all about?”Right on cue, there's your roommate. You may have a clear intention to be quiet inside, but your roommate won't cooperate. And it's not just when you try to be quiet. It has something to say about everything you look at: “I like it. I don't like it. This is good. That's bad.” It just talks and talks. You don't generally notice because you don't step back from it. You're so close that you don't realize that you're actually hypnotized into listening to it. Basically, you're not alone in there. There are two distinct aspects of your inner being. The first is you, the awareness, the witness, the center of your willful intentions; and the other is that which you watch. The problem is, the part that you watch never shuts up. If you could get rid of that part, even for a moment, the peace and serenity would be the nicest vacation you've ever had."-Singer, Michael A.. The Untethered Soul (p. 17)Today's Practice:Watch and listen to your mind.  Notice when it's doing what it does.  Notice its judgements, criticisms, projections, conclusions.  Don't react. Don't respond. Don't try to stop them.  Just notice.  And then notice what else is present.  Listen to the Silence that the thoughts are coming and going in.  Feel that Silence... Joy, Love... the Bliss of the Self.  When you feel this Bliss, It puts the thoughts on transparency mode (like your noise canceling headphones).  Now you're no longer hypnotized by thinking... It's not the only thing you can hear.  Now you can also hear the Silence!  You can feel the Thread.  And It feels good. Don't drop It.  I Love you, Niknikki@curlynikki.com

In this episode, Brynn Anderson and I listen to a lecture from the the legendary speaker, author, and so much more... Ram Dass. Recorded in 1987, Ram Dass talks about what true success is and shares his perspective on spiritual goal setting. He also breaks down how to achieve a form of conscious capitalism when doing business.. Drop In!Ram Dass:Ram Dass also known as Baba Ram Dass, was an American spiritual teacher, guru of modern yoga, psychologist, and author. His best-selling 1971 book, Be Here Now, which has been described by multiple reviewers as "seminal", has sold two million copies and helped popularize Eastern spirituality and yoga with the baby boomer generation in the West. He authored or co-authored twelve more books on spirituality over the next four decades, including Grist for the Mill (1977), How Can I Help? (1985), and Polishing the Mirror (2013).Dass was personally and professionally associated with Timothy Leary at Harvard University in the early 1960s. In 1967, Alpert traveled to India and became a disciple of Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba who gave him the name Ram Dass, meaning "Servant of Ram". In the coming years, he founded the charitable organizations Seva Foundation and Hanuman Foundation. He traveled extensively giving talks and retreats and holding fundraisers for charitable causes in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. In 1997, he had a stroke which left him with paralysis and expressive aphasia. He eventually grew to interpret this event as an act of grace, learning to speak again and continuing to teach and author books. After becoming seriously ill during a trip to India in 2004, he gave up traveling and moved to Maui, Hawaii, where he hosted annual retreats with other spiritual teachers until his death.

Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series, and is also past-president of the Intuition Network. This man is a legend in the world of consciousness and when I interviewed a few of my previous guests on Gateways, a number of them mentioned his name time and time again. When I went down the New Thinking Allowed rabbit hole, I was surprised to see who he had interviewed (from Ram Dass, and Terrance McKenna to name a few) and also the way he interviewed his audience, often diving into a diverse set of topics in a deep and thoughtful way. We talk about the following and much more: ✅ Some major themes that have emerged over the years in the world of psychic phenomenon ✅ Why he says there are many “flowers of consciousness”, but not enough written about the roots of consciousness ✅ What role do indigenous cultures play in the modern world today ✅ What the Egyptian healing temples are ✅ What his perspective is on the future of humanity and consciousness ✅ The “PK man” and some of his research and discoveries This man is truly a legend.

BLAKE SPALDING, originally from New Hampshire, began cooking when she was a small child. By the time she was eight years old, she was preparing full meals for her family. Blake began working in the restaurant world at an early age and at the age of sixteen moved with her family to Flagstaff, Arizona. In her twenties, Blake began cooking as a river chef, mostly on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon, and continued to do this for many years. She also worked for Greenpeace, during which she helped with an anti-pesticide campaign that inspired her passion for organics, sustainability, and all things biochemically and genetically unaltered. While working as a river chef, she began another career: “extreme catering”—cooking in remote, isolated locations, including a deserted island in the Bahamas and the Amazon rainforest. She also opened a catering business in Flagstaff. As a practicing Buddhist, she was often asked to cook for Tibetan lamas, and this directed her relationship with food into one fused with spirituality and meaning. In the year 2000, the opportunity to own Hell's Backbone Grill presented itself, and she moved to Boulder with her friend in cooking, Jen Castle.https://hellsbackbonegrill.com/Cookbook! - https://www.amazon.com/This-Immeasurable-Place-Farming-Wilderness/dp/0999458817 ANNOUNCING JOURNEY SPACE -***Check out the new platform JourneySpace.com - a space for online live facilitated journeys.  The inaugural event will be a live stream open to anyone on Dec 4th, 2021.  Visit Journeyspace.com for more information. Also.

“A ‘Portal to Presence’ is exactly what it says,” writes Gunther Weil, “a simple doorway that points to the realm of Consciousness or Presence. It would be stretching the meaning of the word 'technique' or 'method' to apply it to this idea. One just walks through the portal as one becomes aware of its existence…. The portal opens, and Presence arises spontaneously.” Weil is a Harvard-trained psychologist, executive coach, and lifelong student of consciousness. His diverse and colorful life includes working as a music business executive and being instrumental in the production of Aerosmith’s first album; teaching at Brandeis University, recruited and mentored by psychologist Abraham Maslow; coaching international executives in leadership, wellness, organizational development, and conflict resolution in the private and public sectors; studying and teaching Tai Chi and becoming a recognized master teacher of Qigong; and perhaps most famously, pioneering the mass consciousness movement that began in the 1960s with Dr. Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert (a.k.a., Ram Dass), Ralph Metzner and others that popularized the field of psychedelic therapies.  As a young child, Weil and his parents fled the Holocaust “on one of the last boats leaving for America.” They settled in Nebraska, then Milwaukee, with psychology, philosophy, and classical music infusing their family culture. His father was an internationally regarded psychologist and pioneering researcher in Europe on synesthesia, the phenomenon of crossed senses, like smelling colors or seeing music. Education was of paramount importance; it was his father’s academic work that was their ticket to the US. Weil went on to study psychology and philosophy at Kenyon College, receiving a Fulbright scholarship to study in Norway. While there, he often visited Paris in his free time, inspired by the expat beatniks, literati, and jazz musicians who preceded the hippie generation. Upon returning to the States, he earned his doctorate in psychology at Harvard University. His assigned faculty advisor was a prominent researcher in the field of personality — Dr. Timothy Leary. Among their research studies was the Concord Prison Experiment, a randomized, controlled study designed to evaluate whether psilocybin mushrooms, combined with psychotherapy, could have a healing effect on young adults convicted of felonies in a maximum-security prison. In addition to improved recidivism rates (the degree of which has been debated), personality tests before and after these interventions showed positive changes.  In the 1970s, Weil worked in the music industry, as CEO at Intermedia Recording Corporation and senior vice president of Intermedia Systems Corporation, a publicly held multi-media production firm. Two of his numerous music projects were the 1973 debut album, “Aerosmith,” and the 1978 recording of the song “Jet Airliner,” by the Steve Miller Band, which hit both gold and platinum for sales exceeding two million. The bulk of Weil’s life work sits at the intersection of his formative influences of psychology, philosophy, and spirituality, bringing others to what he calls a Portal to Presence — a simple doorway that effortlessly opens to an expansive awareness. He has conducted personal growth seminars in leadership, creativity, emotional intelligence and wellness for executives and their organizations throughout the world. He is certified in the HeartMath Inner Quality Management Program, Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT), and Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), and is a Master Values Mentor of the Minessence Group. In 2001, he was personally invited by Eckhart Tolle, bestselling author of The Power of Now, to teach and facilitate the Practice of Presence. An important Portal to Presence for Weil has been the internal arts of Tai Chi and Qigong. Fifty years ago, Weil began his studies in New York City in the Yang Style Cheng Man-Ching lineage, followed by the Dong Family Yang style and Chen Beijing style lineages. He deepened his experience of Qigong by traveling the world co-teaching with Master Mantak Chia, a renowned teacher of Taoist Inner Alchemy who, Weil recounts, “would scribble down Qigong practices like the microcosmic orbit onto scraps of paper,” with Weil scrambling to pick them up and study them. In 1996, Weil became the founding chairman of the National Qigong Association and has studied or taught with direct lineage holders in the wisdom traditions of Taoism, Buddhism, Advaita, and The Gurdjieff Work.  Please join David Bonbright and Cynthia Li in conversation with this quintessential student of life and consciousness.

He deepened his experience of Qigong by traveling the world co-teaching with Master Mantak Chia, a renowned teacher of Taoist Inner Alchemy who, Weil recounts, “would scribble down Qigong practices like the microcosmic orbit onto scraps of paper,” with Weil scrambling to pick them up and study them. In 1996, Weil became the founding chairman of the National Qigong Association and has studied or taught with direct lineage holders in the wisdom traditions of Taoism, Buddhism, Advaita, and The Gurdjieff Work.  Please join David Bonbright and Cynthia Li in conversation with this quintessential student of life and consciousness.

Physicist, musician, & author, Dr. Stephon Alexander, joins Francesca in a conversation bridging physics, jazz music, race, inspirational teachers, and why it's important to think outside the box. Dr. Stephon Alexander is a theoretical physicist, musician and author whose work is at the interface between cosmology, particle physics and quantum gravity. He works on the connection between the smallest and largest entities in the universe, pushing Einstein's theory of curved space-time to extremes, beyond the big bang with subatomic phenomena. Alexander is a professor of physics at Brown University and the president of the National Society of Black Physicists. In his critically acclaimed book The Jazz of Physics, Alexander revisits the ancient interconnection between music and the evolution of astrophysics and the laws of motion. In his new book Fear of a Black Universe, he invites the field of physics to embrace the unknown. More info: StephonAlexander.com Ram Dass, Science & Seeking Introducing another multifaceted being of ‘complex intersectionality,' Francesca welcomes physicist, musician, and author, Dr. Stephon Alexander, to ReRooted to explore the macro and micro of all things theoretical physics, jazz music, Ram Dass, science, spirituality, race, the universe, and embracing the unknown. To begin, speaking to his upbringing, Dr. Alexander shares how his multicultural background informs his work in science as well as his musical inclinations. “[Ram Dass] inspired me because he showed those of us who are on an academic path, who prioritize the discursive mind, the intellect, and end up at places like Harvard and Brown—like the Buddha he said, ‘I reached that level, but there's still more questions that could not be answered in those constructs.' He is an inspiration for those of us – a seeker, a great scientist. The greatest scientists were like Ram Dass in that way. That idea of being a seeker and being a true scientist are parallel to each other.” – Dr. Stephon Alexander Ram Dass & physicist Amit Goswami connect science & spirituality, on Ep. 160 of Here & Now Physics & The Power of a Good Teacher // BIPOC Teacher Empowerment (12:08) Prompted by Francesca to recount the moving story behind his Ted Talk, Dr. Alexander shares about the inspiring physics teacher and professional jazz musician who changed his life by recognizing and nurturing his innate talent from a young age – propelling and motivating Dr. Alexander on his current paradigm-shifting multidisciplinary trajectory and path. From here, they discuss how having BIPOC in teaching positions empowers us all.

I watched an entire season of Ram Dass teachings and all the quotes this week are his. The teachings had everything in it from his disliking of people, to his sexuality, to his questioning of Enlightenment. But what I noticed throughout the entire season it's about being. He was just being. How difficult it is for most of us to just be. Just sit still to quiet the mind and just be. So much of what we learn is to be a doer or a thinker or a seeker. “The thinking mind is what is busy. You have to stay in your heart. You have to be in your heart. Be in your heart. The rest is up here in your head where you are doing, doing, doing.”  The idea of being is just being. We have the answers to our lives, but we don't sit quietly to hear what they are saying. There is more to us than this three-dimensional physical plane. We see this in our dreams, meditations and sometimes we get that aha moment when we talk to somebody or watch a TV show or overhear someone speaking. It's amazing to me when you get those little nudges and I don't know where they come from. Is it intuition? Is it our higher self, our angels, spirit guides? In the past, when I have fought these nudges, I will fall flat on my face. So, follow that intuition, Spirit guides, higher self, etc. because it's usually right. “Remember, we are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not. Our actions and states of mind matter, because we're so deeply interconnected with one another. Working on our own consciousness is the most important thing that we are doing at any moment, and being love is the supreme creative act.” These nudges told me to write and publish my poetry. I was scared to do that because yes; I was exposing who I was. I was afraid I would not be accepted. The opposite happened. I was accepted. This same little nudge came to me constantly for two years to start up the Poetic Resurrection podcast. I didn't know what the podcast should be about. I knew it would not be about acting. Then, during the pandemic, I saw people marching and helping at food banks and I thought, how wonderful would life be if we had self-love and self-acceptance? With these acceptances, it would be easy to accept and love others. There would be no fear of loss. Whichever direction these nudges are directing you, they need to be of a kind heart. “Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It's not ‘I love you' for this or that reason, not ‘I love you if you love me.' It's love for no reason, love without an object.” The poem for this week is Continuum from Inspire Me: Perception. Continuum   Spring florets glimmer In afternoon light Scent of fresh tulips Myths of existence—fables   Trembling in 90 degrees Veneer of tears Illusions of turmoil Created by self Head spins—Pandora's Box   Seven sins tap across the stage of A cardinal songbird As the earthfall cleanses itself Hope gathers irises For a rainbow bridge   Oyá* conjures and flees storm Yemaya*—mother disapproves Amazon and Niger Rivers Dominated Femininity protected   Travel—Antipodes Indian ocean with full moonlight Glistens as the waves erupt Hera's* vengeful heart Aches from illegitimate family                                                                   Crumbled mirror of water Tears cascade past seven years, Moisture blooms lilies of death Phoenix's ashes resurrected In endless evolution   Get Ram Dass life-changing book Be Here Now at https://amzn.to/2ZQ6iuW Check out his website: https://www.ramdass.org/   Oyá uses tornados as her weapon and raises dead armies to use as her warriors.

The mother said, “My son has achieved mahasamadhi (final merging).”  She showed me the diary that he had kept.  He wrote that he was taking samadhi, that she should not worry and that he would be watching over her.  She asked me, “Is everything he said true?”  I said, “Well I don't know, but I'm going back to India in the fall to see my guru, and he will certainly know.”  I had my doubts.  No student of mine had gained mahasamadhi, and I said to myself that it must be drugs. Later I learned he had indeed taken LSD.  There had been blood on the walls of the cave and I assumed he had done prānayāma (yogic breath control) while on LSD and he overdid it. One day we were all showing our photos to Maharaj-ji, passport pictures and pictures from our wallets.  I remembered I had this boy's photo and went to get it.   It was his high school graduation picture. It didn't look much like how I remembered him.  But I put his picture next to Maharaj-ji, who said, “He left his body.”  Then he proceeded to quote from the boy's diary, “Tell Ram Dass I have finished my work. I will be watching over you, Mother …” and he give me all the information from the diary.  Maharaj-ji said, “He's one with Christ.  He has finished his work. He's watching over his mother.” Then he said, “Your medicines weren't the cause of his death.”  That had been weighing on my mind.  I wrote to the mother and told her what Maharaj-ji said.  This is just one instance of how Maharaj-ji worked with the subtleties of our lives beyond the appearances to confirm our faith, including our drug karma.” – Ram Dass from Be Love Now --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/baba-here-love/support

Stephen Wright works as a spiritual director and trustee for the Sacred Space Foundation (SSF). Before this, he had a long and distinguished nursing career in the National Health Service and academia, the Royal College of Nursing, and as a consultant to the WHO. He gathered a few glittering prizes along the way. Then his personal and professional life took an about-turn over 35 years ago through a series of life-changing spiritual experiences. Consequently, he developed an interest in spiritual matters and the connection with wellbeing, and cofounded the SSF, to support those in spiritual crisis. He was made an Honorary Fellow of the University of Cumbria in 2013 for his work connecting spirituality and health. Three books explore the nature of healing relationships: Therapeutic Touch: Theory and Practice; Sacred Space: Right Relationship and Spirituality in Healthcare; and Reflections on Spirituality and Health. Coming Home: Notes for the Journey is a personal and scholarly account of spiritual awakening and support. Stephen has received significant development in spirituality and spiritual direction in the presence of several renowned spiritual teachers, most especially his mentor Ram Dass, at the Interfaith Seminary, and in the depth of his relationship with his fellow trustee and SSF cofounder Jean Sayre-Adams. He works with individuals seeking spiritual guidance and organizations developing the practice of healing, spiritual care, conflict resolution, staff support, compassion, and leadership. He is a supporter of and an activist in several environmental movements. As an ordained interfaith minister, he brings a rich experience of spiritual practice from many faiths to his work, as well as being a member of the Iona Community. He is a trustee of TheWEL, a charity based in Scotland offering groundbreaking approaches to wellbeing. With the support of the Diocese of Carlisle (in 2021 he was made a member of the Synod), Stephen established the St. Kentigern School for Contemplatives in 2018. His other recently published works include Burnout: a spiritual crisis: from stress to transformation; Contemplation: words and silence for the Way Home; The Kentigern Way: A life and Lakeland pilgrimage; A Grasmere pilgrimage; and collections of poetry and chant: Song and Dance for the Way Home; Beloved; and Yours, Faithfully. Heartfullness: The Way of Contemplation: 12 steps to freedom, awakening and the Beloved completes a quartet of related books on spiritual awakening and is a deep, experiential ‘course' in liberation from addiction to the ego-self, opening to the way of contemplation, and becoming receptive to the Beloved and a path of service. He lives with his partner in the English Lake District, deepening service and spiritual practice, participating in his local church community, taking care of his organic garden, and enjoying grandfatherhood.

Dive into this beautiful episode from 2020 to revisit the wisdom and devotion which flows from Krishna Das! I'm not sure words exist which are the appropriate containers for the gratitude and joy I hold in my heart for Krishna Das. His chants are with me often as I seek to invoke the divine and lift my consciousness as I move through my day. I use his music to infuse the space around me with a higher vibration as I drive, cook, get ready in the morning, grocery shop, etc. His devotional chants go straight to the heart of the listener, setting the stage for connection with a higher Love. Krishna Das is a worldwide icon and the best-selling western chant artist of all time. He began as a student of Ram Dass in the late 1960s, and in 1970 he lived in India for two and a half years with his guru, Neem Karoli Baba, known as Maharaj-ji. In this conversation he shares his path to finding true Love in his guru and the winding road to expressing that Love which is his guru by sharing his music. Some of the topics we explore include the following. - His journey to finding love, looking to the external world for validation, security, love, before truly finding it in Ram Dass and then Maharaj-ji. - The painful years that followed Maharaj-ji leaving the body, and Krishna Das' pathway to finding his guru again. - Chanting as a tool to emotional healing and to processing the inner shadows, and the dichotomy of chanting being the medicine he needed to connect to Maharaj-ji but also poisoning him through minefields of ego gratification. - Shares stories of the mysterious ways of his guru. - The spiritual dance of releasing into love while tempering the personal will borne of the ego.

We're leveling up on "keeping our cups full".  We have no cups.  We aren't a cup.  The cup is an illusion.  We are the Fullness. We are the Source.  We are the Substance.  We are Love. And as long as we're being That, our seeming cup will appear full enough to have an abundance to share. Today's Quote:"Imagine that being in this love is like relaxing endlessly into a warm bath that surrounds and supports your every movement, so that every thought and feeling is permeated by it. You feel as though you are dissolving into love. This love is actually part of you; it is always flowing through you. It's like the subatomic texture of the universe, the dark matter that connects everything. When you tune in to that flow, you will feel it in your own heart—not your physical heart or your emotional heart, but your spiritual heart, the place you point to in your chest when you say, “I am.”"-Ram Dass, Be Love Now

I start this episode off with an incredible quote I recently heard from Ram Dass that was included in the book Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch.  Dass said, “I'm neither optimistic nor pessimistic. I don't find that an interesting place to hang out. I optimize what I do for all possibilities. What happens is what happens.” Optimizing what you're doing for all possibilities is such a powerful concept and one I want to get into with you today. And we're going to do this by examining the three words that I live by: trust, decide, and act.  When you put these three words into practice, you are going to see results, and you're going to see them quickly. You'll be able to move the needle in your speaking, your business, and your life.  I want you to walk away from this episode really considering these three words and how you can begin to implement them today. In this episode, we'll explore: How to trust yourself and give yourself permission to make mistakes The competence-confidence loop you need to create  What happens when you make a decision based on trust  Investing in yourself Staying in action and forward momentum More from Tricia  Consistently Share Your Big Idea with Secrets of The Big Talk Order my book, The Influential Voice: Saying What You Mean for Lasting Legacy Join The Big Talk Membership Community  Download my FREE Ebook: 7 Step Formula for Fearless Speaking  Explore my content and follow me on YouTube Follow me on Instagram  Connect with me on Facebook  Connect with me on LinkedIn  Visit my website at TriciaBrouk.com

UFO Contact. This week I am talking to Alan Steinfeld about his book 'MAKING CONTACT Preparing for the New Realities of Extraterrestrial Existence'. In MAKING CONTACT: Preparing for the New Realities of Extraterrestrial Existence Alan Steinfeld addresses the question: How can we prepare for an event that is literally beyond anything humanity has ever faced? MAKING CONTACT presents multiple perspectives on what no longer can be denied: UFOs and their occupants are visiting our world. The book answers questions which remain in the wake of the Pentagon's recent disclosures as to who and why these beings are here. It includes original writings by the leading experts of the phenomena, such as Linda Moulton Howe, Earthfiles reporter, Whitley Strieber best-selling author of Communion, Professor John E. Mack, former head of the Harvard Medical school of psychiatry and an alien abduction investigator, Darryl Anka internationally known for his communication with the extraterrestrial Bashar, Nick Pope, former UK Ministry of Defense UFO investigator, Grant Cameron, expert on American presidents and UFOs, Drs. J.J. and Desiree Hurtak, globalists and founders of the worldwide organization, The Academy for Future Science, Caroline Cory, director of Superhuman and ET: Contact, Mary Rodwell, author of the New Human about star-seed children, and actress and writer Henrietta Weekes, expressing the poetic aspects of making contact. Alan Steinfeld contributes and curates the collection with 30 years of experience with the subject. George Noory of Coast to Coast AM kicks off the volume with his veteran overview of the need to wake up to the “new realities of extraterrestrial existence.” At this critical juncture in the government's official acknowledgement of the reality of UFOs/UAPs, scientists, politicians and mainstream news outlets have no idea what to make of these startling revelations or the outpouring of sightings and “contact” experiences currently being reported on a global scale. The book stands as the most comprehensive clarification to date on the intent and intelligence behind the phenomena. The variety of viewpoints expressed in the volume provide a solid foundation for the “preparation” of the greatest challenge to ever face humankind: Meeting the cosmic others. BioAlan Steinfeld is an explorer of consciousness. For over 30 years he has hosted and produced the weekly television series New Realities in New York City. Additionally, with 68,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel of the same name, there have been over 20 million viewers who have seen his programs. These include interviews with luminaries in the field of health, spirituality and UFOS - such as Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Ram Dass and every major UFO researcher in the field. With his media appearances, lectures, and conferences he informs millions about human potential, remote viewing, and the nature of alien contact. For the over five years he has emceed the largest UFO event in the country, Contact in the Desert. He feels that only when the inner explorations of the soul are combined with the outer adventures of the mind can we achieve a harmonious understanding of our place in the cosmos.He is on the board of The Friends of the Institute of Noetic Sciences; Vice President of The Association of Psychotherapy and Spirituality; and the representative to the United Nations for The Academy for Future Science. https://www.amazon.com/Making-Contact-Preparing-Realities-Extraterrestrial-ebook/dp/B08FZBFQPF/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1634376454&sr=8-1-fkmr0 http://www.pastliveshypnosis.co.uk/ https://www.patreon.com/pastlivespodcast https://teespring.com/en-GB/stores/the-past-lives-podcast

https://complexintegrationmbs.com/ Beatriz & Terry Sheldon MD join Francesca to explore Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems, their new innovative psychotherapy paradigm. Beatriz Sheldon M.Ed, Psych, has practiced psychotherapy for forty years in four languages. She has received specialized post-graduate training in short-term dynamic psychotherapy at McGill University in Montreal, and is director of a psychotherapy training program for advanced clinicians in Vancouver. She and Albert have researched and taught psychotherapy together for 20 years. Albert Sheldon, MD, a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Washington, Seattle, has specialized in the research, practice, and training of psychotherapy for 35 years. Dr. Sheldon received a Bush Medical Fellowship to study psychotherapeutic processes from a psychophysiological perspective. The development of the CIMBS paradigm is a result of the Sheldon's research and teaching experiential psychotherapy to clinicians throughout North America and Europe. More info: ComplexIntegrationmbs.com Emotional Brain Systems // Care, Connection, Safeness Welcoming husband and wife psychotherapy duo—Beatriz Sheldon M.Ed, Psych, and Terry Sheldon, MD—to the ReRooted podcast, Francesca invites them to begin with the groundwork of illuminating the various emotional brain systems which make up our present moment human experience. Through this lens, they explore how emotional brain systems like care, connection, and safeness relate to therapy and healing. “It's important to get to know what these emotional systems are so that we can have more clarity about our own experiences inside of ourselves, and as a therapist, to get to know the deeper levels of functioning and capacity and resources that we're all born with.” – Terry Sheldon, MD Francesca and Dr. Bruce Perry talk trauma, resilience, and healing, on Ep. 55 of ReRooted Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems (12:42) With groundwork laid, Francesca invites Beatriz and Terry to further unpack the Complex Integration of Multiple Brain Systems, their new innovative psychotherapy paradigm, which aims to heal by “going the other way” – going beneath the fear, by recognizing and allowing our deeper systems' ability to abide in love in the moment. The Sheldons explain this as a physiological recognition that fear is in the past, while care and trust are in the present. “There is a physiological change into standing up inside of themselves. When I see that there is this change inside, I immediately ask, ‘What's happening right now? What are the sensations that are happening right now?' – Beatriz Sheldon “Trauma is the puppeteer of the present.” – Francesca Maximé Learn about embodied change and neurosculpting with Sharon Salzberg and Dr. Rick Hanson, on Ep. 123 of the Metta Hour Neuroplasticity // Trust, Presence, Unconditional Love (37:37) Speaking to neuroplasticity, Dr. Sheldon relays the power of following up your therapy session with a walk, physical movement, or meditation—as well as reactivating the same neural pathways when drifting to sleep—to help create lasting traits. From here, the group engages in discourse around very dear themes to Ram Dass and the Be Here Now Network: trust, presence, and unconditional love. “Trusting what-is on a deeper level, you may not feel like you have access to it, but it's still there. Not trying to make something happen, but just keep orienting to that neurobiological truth that you are unconditionally worthy, you are unconditionally lovable.” – Terry Sheldon, MD Dr. Dan Siegel joins Francesca to share the practice of presence, on Ep. 27 of the BHNN Guest Podcast

He has a natural talent for creating soundscapes that speak to the heart.   Jon Hopkins is an English musician and producer who began his career playing keyboards for Imogen Heap, and has produced and contributed to albums by Brian Eno, Coldplay, David Holmes and others. Both now specialize in music for psychedelic therapy and are working together on creating a transformative album.   These two humans together are an amazing combination and I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation on how music is a part of human nature, the ultimate human experience, and how it can take our psychedelic explorations to the next level.   To learn more about Jon and East:   Instagram: @eastforest and @mrjonhopkins   Related links: www.alignpodcast.com/alignmethod for a special discount  eatonhemp.com/align and use ALIGN code during checkout to save 20 percent  drinkLMNT.com/align for a FREE sample pack of LMNT RECHARGE www.magbreakthrough.com/alignpodcast and use ALIGN10 during checkout to save 10 percent.

This short but powerful meditation is inspired by Ram Dass' book, Paths to God, in which he shares the way that Muktananda would meditate on his spiritual guru, Nityananda. Today's Quotes:“Whether you worship Christ, Krishna, Kali, or Allah, you actually worship the one Light that is also in you, since It pervades all things.” – Anandamayi Ma "God is in all men, but not all men are in God. This is why we suffer." - Ramakrishna Today's Practice:Imagine God or your favorite spiritual messenger is seated in front of you.  Breathe them into your heart.  Breathe in their Light. Breathe in the Love that they are.  Become aware of this Love filling your entire being.  And then move, speak, and act from this Love.  Keep returning to this felt-Love.  Let It be your new baseline.  Be this Light, today and always.  I Love you, Niknikki@curlynikki.comp.s. This Light makes the body relax and at the same time, sit or stand up straighter.  It makes it sway with a smile on its face.  It makes it want to do Go(o)d deeds for 'others'.  It makes that body love everyone.

Today's Quotes:"You didn't come this far to only come this far." - Unknown "How to get rid of the lower self: The blossom vanishes of itself as the fruit grows, so will your lower self vanish as the divine grows in you.”—Ramakrishna"What is happening to you is nothing less than death and rebirth. What is dying is the entire way in which you understood “who you are” and “how it all is.” What is being reborn is the child of the Spirit for whom things all are new. This process of attending an ego that is dying at the same time as you are going through a birth process is awesome. Be gentle and honor him (self) who is dying as well as him (Self) who is being born."- Ram Dass, 'Be Here Now'Bonus Quote:"When you have started on the path to God, proceed, do not stop. He will take care of you."  - Neem Karoli BabaToday's Practice:The one that didn't want to get out of bed this morning? The one that's uninspired and not excited about a new week... don't try to fix that one. Don't try to change that one.  See through that one.  Feel through that one, to the real One, to the Truth, to Love.  When you stay aware of the real One, a new concept of 'you' is born.  A doper version of 'you' is born.  That's the discomfort you're feeling.  Expect it.  Give thanks for it.

Episode 59: Could Your Natural State Be Loving Awareness? A popular Ram Dass quote- “The natural state of the mind is pure love, which is not other than pure awareness”- sums up much of the dialogue in exploring awareness podcast episodes. The conditions in our current moment in history could lead one away from an open hearted loving awareness to a small and aggressive protective stance that can  be amplified by the loudest voices on TV, radio and social media.   It is possible to realize an identity as awareness and experience the state of the true mind as love. In this episode, we include a guided meditation to point the way to HOW you may start or continue a journey towards these realizations.  Listen and ask yourself – Is it time to move on from an adolescent, ego-centric perspective, or from a locked in, negative curmudgeon perspective of closed minded adulthood to a loving awareness perspective that will make the world a better place for you and those around you?
