I had the great pleasure of interviewing Kirsten Beske in this week's podcast episode.

We discuss the aspects of trauma, how it plays a role on the nervous system and what are methods you can do to transcend your trauma so you can find, not only emotional freedom but liberation from the darkness that may have held you back from achieving more of the beauty of what life offers.

Who is Kirsten Beske?

Fear is something that has been programmed into our brains since an early age. 

Fear is not something bad per se.  If you have a lion in front of you, when the fear kicks into your body and reacts, this is a healthy response.

You want the fear there so your body can prepare to either fight or run like hell.

But, what about most of the fear that we experience in life.  Is it as real as the lion in front of you?  Or is the lion ma...

In this episode, I share the importance of sharpening the knife.  If you have ever seen a chef work its magic, you will notice they have their own knife set.

When they take out their knives, they sharpen them prior to using them.

After they are done, they will clean the knives, dry them off and give them one more sharpening before putting them away.

Why is this so critical for us to do in life?

The knife I share in this episode...

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing, Shu Matsuo Post.  He is the author of the book, "I Took Here Name."  In this episode, Shu talks about how he decided to go against the traditions of his Japanese heritage and do something that he desired and thought was important.

He took his wife's name rather than having her take his.

As a male, who was raised Italian Roman Catholic, it was never seen as the male ...

I remember growing up hearing, "You can't have your cake and eat it too."

Never understood how I couldn't have a slice of cake in front of me and not enjoy it.

But, as I got older and hopefully wiser, I learned that this was a form of a limited belief system.

Too many times, we put our limited beliefs upon someone else's dreams and visions.

Too many times, we spoil a pure mind and vision because we have a li...

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Staci Wallace.  You will be able to tell right off the bat that this woman is truly FUELED BY FIRE as this is also the title of her new book!

We discussed many things that relate to life but the biggest take away from me is, regardless of what someone has on the outside (success), you never know the inner battles that we all face and Staci will share her story on how she reinvent...

There are so many reasons why one should give into:

Our excuses...

Our limited belief systems...

Our inner critic...

Our stories we made up...

Our distractions...

There are endless reasons to give in to so many things...  Especially in a technological world...

But the question is, "how memorable do you want your life to be?"

When you realize the power within, you can achieve anything, as long as you don't give i...

In this podcast episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing the author of the book, "Mr. Monkey and Me," Mike Smerklo.

Mike shares the inner critic we all face and has done an amazing job of titling it, "The Monkey in my head."

I have always believed if you can make light of the inner critic within you, it takes less power over you and you can be more resilient to the words, emotions, and things it will say to you...

Living an information era has so many benefits but yet, also comes with an opportunity cost.

 

When we depend on information all day and that becomes our main focus, we build the muscle of the mind/ego to take over more.

 

It starts to be the leading way of life but when this happens, it is much easier to be controlled, distracted, and a loss of focus.

 

In this episode, I will share with you something to focus on that will b...

In this episode, I interviewed the managing partner of, "The Successful Male - North America," Joesph DiRoma.

Joe and I discussed what it takes to be a successful male in this world and how, growing up, both being Italians, we couldn't truly share our feelings or emotions as they were viewed as being weak.  

Joe discusses his journey through this process and shares his methods of what it takes and the journey to becom...

One thing that is a fact about life and nature taught us this so well is that, no matter what happens, no storm lasts forever...

But instead, storms come and go. Some last an hour, a day, a week, a month, or sometimes an entire year.

Regardless, it will never last forever.

In this podcast episode, I share with you 3 things that you can do to help calm the nervous system, calm the mind, and refocus your energy.

In this episode, I interviewed the author of the book, "One Fine Day."  It was my pleasure to talk and discuss what Sameer's book was about but more importantly, his life story and how life will always have triumphs and tribulations but those tribulations are there for a reason.

He will share his journey and story of what he experienced with health challenges that put his life at a stopping halt and how he realized the...

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jen Broyles.  We discussed many things in this episode but the biggest one I thought was the most powerful was Jen's story on how breathwork transformed her life.

As an advocate for breathwork and someone who uses it daily, I can relate to her story.

Tune in and learn more about breathwork and as an added incentive to listening, Jen does a 10 minute breathwork session on the...

2020 has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride.

A new novel virus.

Lockdowns, quarantines, limited liberties, and so much more.

Businesses shutting down, and some of them for good.

 

Mental health tanking...

Depression skyrocketing...

Suicides skyrocketing...

Anxieties skyrocketing...

 

Many of you are looking forward to what 2021 will bring because of all the darkness we have faced in 2020; it has to get better.

What a year 2020 has been.

 

As Hannukah has waded down and we approach Christmas, what a great time to focus on what you have been grateful for.

 

Not only now, but this entire year.

 

Some may say, “It has been a horrible year.” Some may say the opposite.

 

But regardless, there are many things that we can learn from this year and help us grow, expand, and evolve into our new year.

We are living in turbulent times and 2020 has been one hell of a rollercoaster for all of humanity...

Are we done?

What is yet to come?

The one thing we don't ever know for sure, regardless of how much we allow EGO to run our lives, in the future.

As much as we can predict and expect things to come and they do, uncertainty is always around us. One truth is, the deeper we go into the darkness, the greater we experience the l...
