How do I live a life where the things that matter get done, I can stop at that, and the day is over so that I can allow myself the chance to breathe, the chance to slow down, and the chance to just be present for a few hours at the end of the day? That is a difficult transition if you're just used to pushing all the time. It's a different way of thinking about how your time is spent and who you are at your identity if you're a high achiever but it is worth it for your health. - Jeff Sanders   Are You Stressed Out Lately?

That's not a life; that's just annoying because you exhaust yourself trying to do so much." - Jeff Sanders You Have The Power To Change Your Life "It feels like we are victims to the world but we don't have to be. We have a lot of power. You have the power to change your life but you have to start with this awareness of where you are and acknowledge what is actually happening before you can ever make real change stick long term."- Jeff Sanders The Health Price Paid For Exhaustion "We sacrifice so much. We give up our autonomy and our freedom of choice when we're saying 'yes,' to too many things. We're trying to be productive for the sake of productivity. We sacrifice our health, our time, our relationships - we are giving up our lives for ultimately a price that we don't want. Once we have clarity on what we want because we know it gives us the value we're striving for, our time is going to be spent differently because we're not trying for that same stuff that feels so fleeting." - Jeff Sanders Links From Today's Show  052 Jeff Sanders: Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast 115 Jeff Sanders: The Power of Saying No 169 Jeff Sanders: The Free-Time Formula The 5 AM Miracle by Jeff Sanders The Free-Time Formula by Jeff Sanders The 5 AM Miracle Podcast Powerful Stress-Reducing Breathwork with Josh Trent Join The 5 AM Club!

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

Power Quotes From The Show Questions To Guide Your Healing "The key is to start asking better questions internally because what we ask internally our subconscious answers. So, when I was asking questions like, 'Why can't I lose weight? Why is this so hard?', my subconscious was telling me, 'Oh it's because you've had 6 kids and you have thyroid problems,' which didn't help me move forward. Then when I started asking better questions like, 'How can I be at peace within myself? How can I love myself and my children more? How is it so easy and fun to move toward a state of better health?', then my subconscious started giving me those answers." - Katie Wells Loving The Wounded Inner Child "We all have these core childhood wounds and questions in some form. They might be questions like, 'Am I lovable? Am I worthy?', or this core belief of 'I'm not good enough.' But when we can shift to see other people and ourselves as a hurt child who wasn't taken care of and wasn't loved in the way they should have been loved, it's much easier to show them love and compassion over anger and resentment." - Katie Wells Uncovering The Origins Of Emotional Pain "Start stepping back and asking yourself, 'Who is experiencing this emotion? Who is experiencing this pain?', and also start differentiating because in childhood we develop this idea that any kind of pain or struggle or hardship is bad and we start categorizing emotions and that relationship continues on into adulthood. We put emotions in boxes as good or bad but there inevitably will be struggle as part of the human condition... ...We're unlikely to get through life without some version of that but the better question is, 'Should we even if we could?' - Is that not part of the teaching of living this life? If we can step back and reframe and not go, 'Oh! Pain equals bad', but ask the better questions about where and what this pain is and who is this deeper version within ourselves that is experiencing that pain, then we have a different perspective to start to work through that." - Katie Wells Links From Today's Show  Katie Wells Wellnesse Wellness Mama Podcast 309: How I Overcame Trauma (and Lost 50 Pounds) 472: Josh Trent on Breathwork for Health, Inner Peace, and Learning to Feel Safe In Your Body Paleo f(X) The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A.

Real change rarely comes in the absence of crisis. When we're comfortable, there's no real deep, emerging drive that is compelling us to really analyze the bedrock upon which we rest. The awakening and change that come out of crisis; a lot of the time it happens during a moment of panic so it's reactive rather than responsive. For me, the crisis that we're in now is the perfect set and setting to begin moving in the right direction as a community. We have to start reaching out to like-minded people, allowing them to speak authentically, and not feel ashamed for feeling or believing in certain things. - Ben Stewart   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 416 World-class filmmaker, writer, musician, and Creator of the Psychedelica Series on Gaia, Ben Stewart, shares why there is a silver lining in every crisis, explores the lost art of dialogue and how to communicate from a place of alignment, unpacks how to obtain critical thinking skills, and explains the downside of following the herd.

How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan 326 John Chavez Power Quotes From The Show Building a Relationship with the Nervous System "We have access to our nervous system; you can speak to your nervous system like it's your best friend - in fact, we should because when we come into a better relationship with our nervous system and acknowledge that some things seem really urgent but in what state do you want to start creating the next step? Do you want to do it in the sympathetic nervous system or parasympathetic?" - Ben Stewart Society Awaking: Opening Our Ears To New Ideas "You shouldn't feel bad for having different thoughts or believes than other people. Let's come together as a community and really listen to one another because we're all in this together. I have no clue what superpower these people gleam from believing things different from me so let's all come together, let's pow-wow, let's talk about what's good about this rather than gossiping and putting each other down. It's great when other people have different thoughts than me; I want to learn what that has done to their mindset and how they move forward in the world accordingly because of it. All of us have a gift to share with the world." - Ben Stewart Learning to Trust Your Discernment "Instead of being corned into fear by the media and relying on something outside of yourself to feel safe, trust your discernment. Start trusting your intuition because when you learn to do that then you know when something doesn't feel right. You don't have to have all of the answers or details; just move slower and be more discerning. Even if you slip up - what did you learn from it?" - Ben Stewart Links From Today's Show  Gaia | Ben Stewart Ben Stewart Podcast DMT Quest Documentary Waking Infinity News Podcast Gaia | Waking Infinity 323 Charles Eisenstein Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: An Overview Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall B.

The incredible level of physical, mental, and emotional health that Scott's grandfather still has at the age of 88 and why it inspires his wellness journey. Why he focuses on being part of work that helps people develop and age well throughout life. The difference between focusing on living a good health span rather than just longevity. Exploring how far we have come in the health and wellness tech space for healing the human body. The benefits of Hapbee and why it's essentially the "digital imprint of a drug." [14:00] How To Digitize A Drug The various emotional vibrations from the lowest at shame and the highest at enlightenment and love. How Scott's team formulated the Hapbee technology to quantify emotional intelligence. Which 8 current frequencies are available with the Hapbee device to boost your vibration. How Hapbee has been designed to be very safe especially when you consider all of the radiation our cell phones emit. The benefits of digitizing a drug compared to taking a physical drug and all of the issues that come along with it from side effects to high costs. 401 Jerry Ross Why people like Dr. Kenneth Ferguson who invented Cialis are now exploring how digitizing drugs can benefit the human body. How they used magnetometers to hear magnetic waves starting to come off of the molecules of a drug. What studies are currently being done to see how digitizing chemotherapy can help cancer patients but it could take a decade or more with all of the studies that need to be done. Which drugs they have begun digitizing and completing safety tests for including caffeine, nicotine, and even stimulants found in dark chocolate. 312 Kevin Kelly [27:30] Hapbee for Children & Pets Who Hapbee is for and how it can help them on their wellness journey. Dr. Steven Gundry The attention Hapbee is getting in the functional and holistic medicine world right now. Who should be careful with Hapbee including people that have a pacemaker or are pregnant yet Scott and his team have not seen any issues in their studies so far.

Fascinating patterns they're finding in their studies where someone either feels Hapbee working right away very strongly or it takes them a couple of tries including their CTO, Sid. Why people who have done a lot of brain work like meditation and inner work for trauma usually feel the effects of Hapbee right away. 310 Ariel Garten If you have a trauma blockage and have not done anything before on your own or with someone to heal it, that can literally block Hapbee's sensations. 385 Dr. David Rabin How Hapbee's sensations have been designed to only give you a medium dosage; you cannot get drunk or high or caffeine stimulated from their device.

The struggles we all face in life and how they help us grow. Joe Polish Be Here Now by Ram Dass Scott's spiritual journey and why he considered becoming a pastor at one point until his theology professor told him to become a leader in the business world. His mission to use business for good and to help more people as quickly as possible. BJ Fogg The Social Dilemma | Official Trailer | Netflix   Power Quotes From The Show   Game Over for Big Pharma "Everything from our cells to our neurons is connected through sound and frequency. So, we asked ourselves, 'What if we could digitize a drug?' If you take drugs, there's a chemical bound and the potential for side effects, toxicology issues addiction problems, and it's very expensive. If you can digitize it and remove any of the side effects, you can still give people the desired altered state that will help our lives move forward, to engage with other people, to focus more, to sleep better, and more. There's so many practical reasons and if you can digitize a drug, it's game over for Big Pharma." - Scott Donnell An All-In-One Support Tool "Hapbee is a tool and we're not going to fix everybody's problems but what we can do is be right there as a perfect assistant for you when you need it quickly.

Whether it's going on a walk or hanging out with the people that I love, that's wellness at the end of the day - it's freedom." - Scott Donnell Links From Today's Show  EMulate Therapeutics Mind Pioneer Podcast with Scott Donnell 361 Luke Storey 389 Dave Asprey 401 Jerry Ross 312 Kevin Kelly Dr. Steven Gundry 310 Ariel Garten 385 Dr. David Rabin 130 Tom Bilyeu 384 Shawn Stevenson 373 Matteo Franceschetti Dr. Drew Pinsky Jim Kwik NutriSense 397 Kara Collier 403 Robb Wolf 40 Years of Zen Joe Polish Be Here Now by Ram Dass BJ Fogg The Social Dilemma | Official Trailer | Netflix Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co – Save 15% on your first order with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE'!

Healing the mind is really about integration and in reality, any time we need to go through a healing process it's because there are parts of ourselves that we have divorced ourselves from. There are childhood wounds, there is trauma, there are unresolved emotions that we try to divorce ourselves from and try and bypass which creates a lot of stress in the body and the psyche. The healing process is really bringing those parts home; bringing the wounded child home and resolving this trauma or that relationship.” – Greg Schmaus  Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 414 CEO of 4D Healing, Holistic Health Practitioner, and Creator of Healing The Mind, Greg Schmaus, returns to explore how humanity has grown because of CV19, what the peace paradox is, why pain is our greatest teacher, how to honor our four internal seasons, and the three biggest reasons why we self sabotage.

Listen To Episode 414 As Greg Schmaus Uncovers: [1:30] How Humanity Has Grown Because of CV19 Greg Schmaus 4D Healing 356 Greg Schmaus Greg's own experience having COVID-19 and what lessons he learned from it including how to reground and connect with nature again. How COVID-19 sped up global awakening and specifically higher consciousness for people like Greg. Why the pandemic was an opportunity for us to shine light on our underlying fears and wounds. 345 Zach Bush MD 362 Zach Bush MD Paul Chek | All Is God CHEK Institute Greg's purpose to help the awakening of consciousness and to really help coach people during their healing journeys. Why everything is here to help us; even our challenges are opportunities to really grow. Greg's own healing journey and how their mutual friend, Paul Chek, helped guide him. [12:30] The Peace Paradox Why we cannot rely on other people 100% to help us heal, we have to do the work ourselves. How we can quiet the mind and find the stillness within and why it can be complex day to day. What the mind does to protect us when we have experienced trauma, rejection, and abandonment. How we actually end up wounding ourselves when the mind tries to protect us from emotional pain. 366 Mark Wolynn What you need to know to help you fully prepare for your journey of healing your mind. Why the health of the mind is so dependent on the health of the body. The power of sitting in the eye of the storm and deeply surrendering to your emotions and what is going on around you. Exploring this dance of polarity we are experiencing at high levels in the world today and how that impacts our psyche and stress levels. [24:30] 3 Reasons Why We Self Sabotage How Greg has built his program, Healing The Mind, for a 3 week process starting with the foundation of healthy lifestyle practices. Why starting with the physical foundation of health focusing on sleep, nutrition, and movement is so important before doing the deeper emotional work. The addiction to complexity some people face as they try to skip over the simple yet important health fundamentals to get to the hard stuff because “that's where the answer has to be.” Breaking down the 3 reasons why we self sabotage: fear, limiting beliefs, and unresolved emotional wounds. Why so many people have a fear of healing and they actually get their needs met by not healing such as receiving love and support for the first time because of a health crisis. How we become addicted to a crisis or playing the victim. Why some deeper health issues need to be resolved like your relationship with food before you begin to heal with a healthy diet. [31:30] How Pain Guides Our Healing Unpacking the war between the head and the heart plus their relationship towards pain. Why healing can only happen when the head and the heart are fully aligned and you can commit to your wellness journey. How vocal expression plays a big role in aligning the head and the heart. Common causes for the head and the heart to become out of alignment. Why finding a big enough dream and purpose for yourself will help you find your inner compass. How the Pain Teacher works as a feedback mechanism and utilizes your inner compass as an opportunity to awaken your consciousness and help you grow. Why playing the victim is essentially denying divine creation. The fact that there is a light and a shadow side to each archetype including the victim. Matt Kahn Why our personal healing is also helping the collective heal on a grander scale as we break generational and society patterns. How God is exploring it all through our individual experiences: relationships, emotions, trauma, potential and so on. [43:30] Mental Health Opportunities Why so many people, 85-90% of Americans in Greg's opinion, are facing moderate mental health issues. How we can switch from focusing on mental health issues to mental health opportunities. Why we'll never resolve our stress or anxiety if we spend all of our time trying to get rid of it and pushing it away. Josh's severe pornography addiction that he worked on for 25 years and why fighting it didn't help but doing the inner work to love his addiction and fear is what helped him. How to know if you truly have an addiction to something whether that is porn, alcohol, social media etc. Greg's past addiction to exercise to feel valued and protect himself even though he felt more and more depleted. Why many of us have so many unhealthy addictions and attachments without realizing it. The 1 question Greg asks people to help them uncover their addiction(s). [50:30] Honoring Our Internal Four Seasons The fact that humans are wired to follow a seasonal rhythmic pattern both nutritionally and also emotionally. Why the opposite of addiction is connection – either connection to self or connection to others. Dr. Gabor Maté Exploring what the seasonal rhythms are and why we ignore them. How Greg's program integrates all of the seasons of nature in the final third week of his program. Why we get off track with the seasons because the human mind has created this construct of linear time: past, present, and future which is an allusion. Nature's cyclical time construct and why it is not linear at all. Why the four seasons exist inside of us and even in a 24 hour cycle. How humans have become addicted to the internal summer season of go-go-go, create, and grow to the point that we've ignored the spring and fall seasons. What addictions we turn to when we try to keep in one season instead of naturally building a balance within. Why we become so addicted to the summer season because we need the external world to validate and approve of us. Rumi Rumi Quotes & Poems [1:02:00] How To Start Your Healing Journey What causes people to ignore the pain teacher for so long. Why Greg started listening to his pain teacher so early on in life in his late teens and early twenties. Times when Greg wasn't yet ready to listen to his pain teacher and would turn to addictions to bypass that inner work. Why sometimes we have to get to the point of being so uncomfortable that we don't have any more options but to start the healing journey. How Greg learned to sit in “the eye of the storm” and have some of his most spiritual experiences while fully surrendering to his deepest pain. The benefits you receive every single time you re-listen to different interviews at various times in your wellness journey as you continue to grow and change. Why and how to become really connected to your truth and live in full alignment with that rather than outsourcing your truth to the government, social media, and the healthcare system or even what Greg says. How inner child wounds keep us from healing the mind as well as connecting with and living our truth. Why it's now your job, as an adult, to offer yourself what you didn't receive as a child. What wellness means now to Greg since his first interview with Josh on Wellness Force.

The healing process will then focus on stacking the head and the heart on top of each other through the expression of using your voice. What's between the head and the heart is the throat so how you express yourself and your needs and your values as well as how you set healthy boundaries and live fully in alignment with all of that is one of the most important pieces for healing. People are sick because they've given themselves away so much; they've fragmented, they've divorced, they've wounded themselves out of the fear.” – Greg Schmaus Moving Past The Crisis Mindset “What is your dream, what is your purpose, what is it that you really want to create for yourself? When you have a dream, you have a purpose. You have some sort of objective and an inner compass. When you know what direction you want to go in and what you want to create for yourself, you no longer have interest in creating what you were before which was your crisis.” – Greg Schmaus Pain: The Catalyst For Growth “The pain teacher utilizes crises as an opportunity to awaken your consciousness and to grow yourself. Pain is a feedback mechanism. Pain in the body is mirroring back to you your choices, behaviors, and belief systems that are no longer serving you.”  – Greg Schmaus Links From Today's Show 4D Healing Healing The Mind: A Journey To Wholeness 21 Day Guided Program 356 Greg Schmaus 345 Zach Bush MD 362 Zach Bush MD Paul Chek | All Is God CHEK Institute 366 Mark Wolynn Matt Kahn Dr. Gabor Maté Rumi Rumi Quotes & Poems Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co – Save 15% on your first order with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE'!

Why are the numbers always bad numbers and fear numbers? Why do they always change from deaths to cases? From the very beginning of CV19, I planted this message in my patients: 'Guard your mind, guard your heart, guard your spirit from the fear and the anxiety because it's coming." - Dr. Stanton Hom     The Impact of CV19 on Future Generations   "If children have this virtually 100% survival rate at this stage, why would we force anything more on them? From a clinical perspective, a fall out 10, 20, 30 years from now can exist. When some of these young kids are starting to grow their own families, and they're riddled with fear and anxiety that their healthy bodies can harm or kill a loved one - anyone random, unassuming person on the street- that belief system is what I stand wholly against today." - Dr. Stanton Hom     The Pilot Light of the Human Spirit "We are as a species undergoing the greatest form of generational trauma that we will ever know in humankind; I hope that we will ever know. What I know at the depths of our soul is that the human spirit sometimes feels like it's crushed - like it's completely extinguished but it's always a pilot light, it's always there and always has a potentiality otherwise we wouldn't be talking, otherwise we wouldn't be alive. Because it has the potential to be stoked into a greater flame - it's all going to come from community." - Dr. Stanton Hom   Links From Today's Show The Future Generations Community Future Generations Podcast The Asch Conformity Experiments Chinese Exclusion Act Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E.

I know for me if I don't get a good night's sleep, I feel terrible the next day. Imagine what that is like for people to suffer from not enough quality sleep every night; it's devastating and it can lead to health issues like diabetes, heart attacks; you name it. Lack of quality sleep is really bad for your health." - Amir Reuveny   Creating a Sleep Action Plan with Wesper   "After we told my father that he has sleep apnea, I was really anxious about what that means for me as well and whether or not I should wear a CPAP and about the next steps. This is also when we started moving our focus on the patch and sensing technology alone to more of a platform to help people not only get their results in an easy and seamless way but also an action plan and start implementing it with our support at Wesper." - Amir Reuveny   Treating The Two Types of Sleep Apnea "Within sleep apnea, you have two main types; one is central sleep apnea and the other is obstructed sleep apnea. Central sleep apnea is basically your brain controls and stops providing commands to your lungs to breathe during the night but this is less common - only 10-15% of the cases. The more common sleep apnea is obstructed and is caused by the obstruction of your airways. Some causes can be the tongue muscles relax during the night especially if you sleep on your back or the narrowing of the airways sometimes when you gain weight. If you have sleep apnea the important thing is to identify which type so you can treat it specifically." - Amir Reuveny   Links From Today's Show Amir Reuveny 125 Dr. Kirk Parsley 397 Kara Collier | Nutrisense OURA Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co – Save 15% on your first order with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE'!

Creativity has the capacity to surprise you. If you're washing dishes the same old way for the 365th time this year, there's not much learning going on there but if you shift your attention - let's say you're in a zen monastery and there washing has a different significance; it's about being present with each dish and with the task at hand.

How fear can block our experience of life if we allow it to always be present.   [36:30] Freeing Up Mind Space for Genius to Emerge Why trying to control everything actually leads to big issues and how we can begin to let go of that habit. How Gay let go of trying to control his weight and placed his attention on what he could actually control like food. Why the biggest barrier block on our path to genius is a habit of fear based negative thinking. How to learn to love yourself by asking yourself who is someone that you know for sure that you love. Why peace of mind will only come in through full awareness of what is happening within your mind and body. Our incredible connection to the universe, everything, and everyone. How to create space to allow your energy of genius to flow. Why we just give more and more energy to negative thoughts as we continue to criticize them. The importance of not staying in a positive only or negative only mindset but trying to be more neutral and observant of our thought patterns.   [51:30] How To Grow Past The Ego What helped Gay better understand relationships by thinking about the 3 things he wanted and the 3 things he didn’t want in them. The moment Gay realized that he and his partner were in this continuous loop of having the same argument over and over by neither of them being honest and transparent with one another, always blaming each other, and her not allowing him to have a space every day for his creativity to flow. How the ego can get in our way of creative flow and how Gay defines this word. Why our early childhood experiences have such a great impact on who we grow up to be, our thoughts, and our habits. The fact that your personality is made up of two factors: 1) Everything that you do to try and please other people and 2) how to avoid pain. What the unconscious mind does to try and avoid pain and “losing at the game of life”: Get sick and have accidents or not play the game and be apathetic. Why amazing things will happen when you grow and go beyond the two factors of your conditioned childhood personality. How the ego comes into play as that part of you that is busy always making other plans as life goes on.   [1:07:30] How to Commit to Your Genius The power of commitment to help you move forward with positive change. What you can do to commit to your genius every day. How consciously committing and saying, ‘Yes,’ to your genius will invite barriers so you have the chance to overcome them. His work with helping people say, “Yes,” to their genius and overcome their egos becoming angry when barriers come up. How old emotions can easily be experienced when we are moving through new transitions. What “tall poppy syndrome” is and how it keeps people back from fully stepping into their genius. What wellness means to Gay now compared to 5 years ago from his first interview with Josh.

The problem with fear is our attempt to control it. There is rational fear like when you're walking alone in a parking garage and irrational fear like when you're making love with your beloved and your mind is still back in the parking garage. That's a problem because then you're using your fear as a way to block your experience of life. To love your fear, the first thing we need to do is simply acknowledge our fear and let ourselves open our hearts to it rather than try and squeeze it out or our bodies." - Gay Hendricks   The Power of Positive Thinking   "Often the most powerful first positive thought you can have in any given area is, "Okay, I commit now to bringing forth my..." and you fill in the blank. Whether it's your health goals, your true creativity, or your genius, commit to it so that you feel this energy and inspire other people. Those kind of positive thoughts are the place to start any new pattern from because they cancel out all of the other things. Once you put in this new idea, your mind will automatically start to naturally go to it. Until you do that though, your mind will automatically go to the least painful, negative idea and start working down from there. The universe is very happy to teach us with the tickling of a feather or hit us with a cosmic wham." - Gay Hendricks   How to Unlock Inner Peace & Creative Space     "Fear is hard to love at first because you've been pushing it out of it body for so long; when something hurts you, you want to get rid of it quickly but with fear it works the other way around. Peace of mind comes only through full participation with what's going on in your body. For peace of mind, you have to admit and allow into your mind fear, anger, sadness - all of those negative emotions. We make the mistake of thinking there's one faucet called, 'pleasure' and one faucet called, 'pain,' but there's only one true faucet and that's called, 'awareness...' ...You turn up the faucet of awareness and life - big life starts to come at you. Sometimes that life has fear, anger, and sadness in it but what's also coming is the power of this awesome life energy that we all have access to; we all have access to this enormous creative presence and space inside us." - Gay Hendricks   Links From Today's Show  The Genius Zone: The Breakthrough Process to End Negative Thinking and Live in True Creativity by Gay Hendricks 055 Love Vs.

If you're not training yourself, the world is training you. When you do nothing and the world trains you with all of its negativity, fear, and, consumerism - how is that going for you? In comparison, when you take responsibility for training yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally so that you're making steady progress day in and day out, check in with yourself and see the difference. You're going to be a completely different person and we call that transformation. - Mark Divine   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 410 Commander as well as Founder of both SEALFIT and the Unbeatable Mind Academy, Mark Divine, returns to explore the concepts of the Kokoro Spirit, the Five Mountains of being a human being, how to overcome your core challenges by integrating practices from the Unbeatable Mind, and how to unlock positive neurodiversity.   How do we be a powerful human that's also peaceful?    Discover how to let go of shame and low energy vibrations to help you build an unbeatable mind and be a leader in your wellness tribe.  Paleovalley's Apple Cider Vinegar Complex Save 15% on your order with the code ‘JOSH' at wellnessforce.com/paleovalley Introducing a powerful organic blend of apple cider vinegar and four more gut & health supportive superfoods.

Questions Mark asked about himself and his company after Kirk passed away plus what a Shaman told him at his Kokoro Yoga event. The deep healing Mark and his team have gone through since that event.   [25:30] Bridging The Spiritual and Physical Worlds What lessons and gifts Mark has received from the CV19 experience especially his relationship with his parents. The Eastern belief that we choose our parents when we come into this world and why Mark openly takes full responsibility for his Spirit choosing his childhood experience. Why there are many people in the military who thrive at controlling their emotions because they were traumatized as children. The power of the Shamanic connection and how they can navigate the non-physical world when most of us are non-believers and disconnected. Why Mark is grateful for Kirk and he has been one of his most profound teachers. The science today on remote viewing or Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) and our connection to the spiritual world.   [33:00] The Five Mountains of the Unbeatable Mind & Positive Neurodiversity Exploring the Five Mountains of Life that we all experience and how the training of Unbeatable Mind incorporates them: Physical, Mental, Emotional, Intuitional, Spiritual. Unbeatable Mind | The Five Mountains How his team uses meditative practices to help people get into a deep state of whole mind awareness and perceive a future that they desire that is also aligned with who they are.

Core challenges men face before their Unbeatable Mind training. Why the Five Mountains are not separate but we have been taught in society that they are distinct. Mental discipline, focus, motivation, and desire men face with their Physical Mountain. What bubbles up emotionally for men once they have a good footing on the Physical Mountain. Why we first start with the physical training in order to help get the body get in balance. The power of training the mental, physical, and emotional factors at the same time with a team. Key differences and benefits of training with a team compared to on your own. Why the individual way of being that we have been taught as Westerners in the USA is not beneficial and we need community.   [46:30] Transitioning From “Me” to “We” in Your Wellness Tribe What ethnocentrism is and how it helps you put the needs of your team before your own plus why we are comfortable with this in a family setting but not others. Why it’s vital to meet your needs first before those of your teammates as a way of cultivating emotional intelligence. Unpacking the emotional baggage we carry in the subconscious mind. What you should look for in your wellness tribe to help you transition into more of a “We” than an “I.” Why team practices aren’t just part of the military, athletics, and families but also in business and work.

What it means to live a life well lived by committing to your own evolution and doing the best that you can.   [1:01:30] Healing Generational Patterns & Bad Karma Training the flow state to help you avoid monkey thoughts like, “I’m not good enough. I’m not smart enough.” 366 Mark Wolynn Exploring generational trauma origins and Mark’s belief that we are born with karma that we need to resolve during our lifetimes. How you can resolve all of your past karma and generational trauma and patterns but it requires commitment to your training. Why the emotional component of meditation was missing when it was brought to Western society. How to begin removing the things, people, and obligations that are no longer serving you. The fact that pain and suffering is part of the experience of our spiritual selves having a physical experience while alive.   [1:07:00] Building Consistent Wellness Practices How physical training has become something that Mark loves to do and so it is a big part of his day-to-day life compared to what other people might do to also get the benefits of physical exercise. Why the mental and emotional parts of being actually don’t take up a lot of time; you can take 20 minutes in the morning for breathing, meditation, and visualization each day. The incredible benefits of doing a little bit of wellness practices every day instead of doing something like 5 hours of it straight on a Saturday. People with Neurodiversity features may spend a lot of time trying to adjust to their work environment. They may need to manage their social impressions or find ways to block out distractions.   [1:11:30] Letting Go of Shame & Other Low Energy Vibrations Letting Go by David R. Hawkins Exploring the different levels of emotions and why the lowest vibration begins with shame. Why shame is what is making the most money in marketing and is keeping people in jail mentally and spiritually. How shame is driving the division we see in society as far as different political views and being a “good boy or good girl” with lockdown and face mask protocols. Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior by David R. Hawkins The Eye of the I: From Which Nothing is Hidden by David R. Hawkins How to tap into low vibrations such as shame with the tools of shadow work and deep mind-body work. The fact that we have so much shame in our Western culture but there is a lot of positive aspects we should feel honored about as well such as courage. What you can do to stop feeding the “wolf of fear” and begin feeding the “wolf of courage.” The power acts of acceptance and forgiveness which are at some of the highest levels of vibration behind love. Why change happens when we begin to focus on shifting our mindset and consciousness but only if we are spending our attention wisely. How corporations and governments know how to keep the population in fear so that they can have control of them. Neurodiversity refers to variation in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions in a non-pathological sense   [1:15:00] Witnessing Society’s Positive Global Wellness Shift What gifts COVID-19 has brought our relationships, personal development journeys, and businesses. Why so many people are facing dark thoughts about the future because they haven’t yet trained the mind for a positive shift. The fact that Mark is seeing more and more people in their 40s and up really taking charge of their health and spirituality. How younger generations are being raised by higher conscious parents and that is positively impacting life around us. The positive tipping point he believes we will experience between 2030 and 2040 after all of our collective work to heal and cultivate greater consciousness for humanity. How Mark sees wellness now since his last conversation with Josh on episode 086. Wellness practices Mark focuses on every day to help him keep growing on a consistent basis.

When that day is over, it's like a metaphorical death. You're done with that day but you could be done with your life so go be happy. The only way to know that you had a life well lived is to commit to your evolution and to do the best you can every day. The more nuanced you become with your practice, it becomes every minute and then every second. Then it becomes every moment to moment... ...You become so present and so aware that every thought and emotion that comes up, every experience you have, every interaction you have is an opportunity ask, 'How can I use this moment to evolve and serve?' so that it becomes part of your everyday awareness and perpetual flow state." - Mark Divine   The Five Mountains of Wellness   "Wellness is a journey, not a destination. It is easy for people to fall off of the path when they hit those major obstacles and this is when the other mountains, Spiritual and Intuitional, come into play with the Physical, Mental, and Emotional. Acknowledge what is blocking you, lean into it but don't stop your other training. Keep going to the gym, journaling, eating healthy, and doing your box breathing practice. If you fall off your rituals, just get back on and continue the work." - Mark Divine   The Training of Unbeatable Mind     "The training of Unbeatable Mind is really powerful because when we train ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally, what we're doing is working to connect and integrate all those physical aspects of the mind: the brain-brain, the heart-brain, the belly-brain, and the body-brain. Then we're also working simultaneously to expand our perceptions so that we begin to experience the mind independent of the body as well. Those are the first 3 of the 5 Mountains." - Mark Divine     Links From Today's Show  086 Creating The Unbeatable Mind With Mark Divine Sealfit Unbeatable Mind Mark Divine's Books Unbeatable Mind Podcast with Mark Divine Mark Divine Instagram | Morning Rituals, Courage, Facing Fears, Witnessing and Relationships A DEEPER WHY Josh Trent's Journey Thru SEALFIT 20X-12 Hr.

At twenty-six he graduated as Honor Man (#1-ranked trainee) of SEAL BUD/S class number 170. Mark served for nine years total on active duty and eleven as a Reserve SEAL, retiring as Commander in 2011.  His leadership of teams was so effective the government tasked him with creating a nationwide mentoring program for SEAL trainees.  Not only did it increase the quality of SEAL candidates, it reduced BUD/S attrition rate up to five percent.   A New Kind of Fitness Company What made Mark’s program so effective was his focus on more than just physical fitness.  He’d seen laughter conquer fatigue and bond teams at their BUD/S breaking point, intuition save his men during the hell of war and special ops missions.  He knew he could form a fitness company that prepared civilians for the physical AND mental/emotional demands of  Navy SEAL-like lifestyle.  So he started SEALFIT.   Entrepreneur, Professor, and Unbeatable Mind At the same time SEALFIT was beginning he co-founded Coronado Brewing Company, built www.NavySEALs.com, the leading website for SEAL gear and information, and launched US Tactical, a government contracting business.  He also served as adjunct professor of leadership at the University of San Diego before the Navy called him up for duty in the Iraq War. Through Mark’s teaching, entrepreneurial endeavors and travel to foreign countries, he noticed the power of mental toughness, emotional resilience, intuitive leadership and a healthy spirit for anyone wanting breakthrough performance.  They weren’t solely for combat or restricted to the business world or one culture.  He’d watch them transform lives in people from every background, nation and belief system.  So he wrote and self-published his first book, Unbeatable Mind, in 2011 and launched its at-home study program.   More Writing and a Continuing Journey Three more books poured out in a torrent…  The Way of the SEAL, published by Reader’s Digest, and 8 Weeks to SEALFIT and KOKORO Yoga, both published by St. Martin’s Press.  Writing his experience for others triggered a realization of his own full-circle journey… Grown up in upstate New York, a degree in economics and an MBA from NYU.  He’d prepared for life as a high powered CPA… and then left his high paying finance career for the adventurous life of a Navy SEAL officer.  Now he’s once again sought after by those same corporations and institutions, as a trainer of the mental toughness and the whole person training that shaped, and healed him. Mark lives with his family in Encinitas, California, where he continues to train, explore, learn from others and generate more resources to improve the lives of everyone he meets.   Build Immunity.

Hey, it's Josh from Wellness Force, and this is a special solocast. It seems that not a moment goes by in the mainstream media that is projecting people into fear. I know you feel this. If you yourself have felt the pull of the ancient brain, the amygdala, that has literally pulled you into fear, this solocast is for you and this solocast is for anyone who has become what I believe is a victim of intellectualization. How many of us have searched the world going from book, to PDF, to podcast, to lecture, to lesson, to curriculum, to certificate, to doctorate, to training, to workshop only to feel incomplete? Because all of these modalities, all of these training platforms, learning platforms, they all do their very best, but they're all missing one very important key, and that is access to the heart. Yes, we know that sometimes for many of us, most of the time in this modern world, that the largest space is between the head and the heart. So with good intentions, so many people fall into the great trap, the great trap of the 3D world of the modern world, and that trap is to intellectualize our healing and to intellectualize our being.   Josh Trent (1:27): Now, look, I'm not here to say that the mind or being an intellectual is wrong. Actually, intellectualizing and using the mind to discover and learn and be curious is a beautiful vehicle for discovery, but it is only a vehicle and a vehicle cannot run without gas, without fuel, and I believe that the fuel of the mind is the heart. The fuel of the mind for a whole and complete embodied human is the heart. So how do we escape the clutches and the traps of being a victim of intellectualization, especially right now with people being in fear about vaccines and mask-wearing and all these things? We take a breath and we escape it by letting go. We let go of having to repeat phrases we've heard like, "Love won't pay the rent" or "You're just a hippie sitting around a fire, talking about how love is all there is," but the most beautiful and the most polarizing thing is that love is all there is. So when the rent is due, that's love. When your bills are being paid, that's love. When you're seated before the beauty of a majestic tree with the sunlight kissing your shoulders, that's love. Because nothing on planet earth is not love. Therefore, all is love and all is God. So God is love and God cannot be intellectualized. God can only be felt with the warmth of Mother supporting you as you lay on her earth; and the bright blue sky from Brother; that sweet, cool wind from Sister as Father Sun heats our hearts and warms our skin. These are not things that can be intellectualized. You cannot read these in a book. They can only be felt by the wisdom of the heart and so we begin the healing as a collective within myself and within anyone who is hearing this right now; that is, to recognize when you have been a victim of the intellectualized mind.   Josh Trent (3:20): Now being a victim of intellectualization, it's very common. It's incredibly common because we've all been taught to disconnect from our hearts. Since birth, we've been taught to disconnect from our hearts and somehow our mind will find the right way for us. Our mind will make us successful. Our mind will make us the money. Our mind will get us the girl or the guy. Our mind will do it all. This is the absurdity and the foolishness modern society has taken upon itself, how we have chosen to forget who we are and disconnect from nature. So the healing begins by breathing, by taking an honest look at who we are and how we're living, then only can we reconnect to the wisdom of the heart. So I challenge everyone here with us right now. Take stock. Take emotional inventory. When did you first realize that you disconnected from your heart? Did you learn it from your parents? Did you learn it from school? Were you bullied? Were you called fat? Were you called stupid? Were you made fun of just from being who you are, go to that place and love that being, love that girl, love that boy, that soul and begin to re-parent the heart inside of you to know that it is safe. This world is a safe place. This world is not totally dangerous. Your immune system is not something to be feared. This world is not 100% unsafe. Yes, there are certain laws that are mysterious and we honor the mystery because we are never ever 100% safe. To live is to be alive and to be alive is not always safe, but this world is a safe place.   Josh Trent (5:02): So with the wisdom of the heart and honoring Great Spirit and Mother, this place is where we can find peace. These archetypes of Great Spirit and Mother Earth and Sky and Wind and Water and Fire, all these archetypes are here for us to connect to in a way that we choose, that serves us yet the universal law is that all is one brother, sister, father, mother, grandfather, wind, water, fire, earth. We are all part of this family. Now, this seems like a mystery to you if it's the first time you're hearing this. This is where you set up your tentative awareness. In the words of one of my guides from the Vision Quest, Mark, this is where you set up your tent: you set up your tent in the center of when the detonation and the destruction and the hurt and the tears and blood were spilled, where you may have been infected with the evil that tells you to disconnect from your heart. This is the space where the zero point field begins to access the wisdom of your heart, and the wisdom of the heart has many voices. The wisdom of the heart has tears, laughter, singing, anger, sadness, despair. The wisdom of the heart has so many voices asking to be heard. But yet in our society we've been taught to ignore these voices. We've been taught to ignore the voices of the heart. We ignore our tears. We ignore our sadness. We push it down with another shot of tequila, swipe on Tinder, or a jerk off session to porn. We try to clamp down and not let our tears escape by another thousand dollar Nordstrom visit or a shopping spree on Amazon. All things that fill a hole with no bottom, because the true bottom of the hole is the wisdom of the heart, and the wisdom of the heart cannot be silenced. Therefore, its voice may come out sideways.   Josh Trent (6:54): If you're angry, sad, resentful, and you do not have connection to your heart in order to sing or cry or scream or shake or express that anger, trust me, sadness or grief will come out sideways. Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be transmuted. This is why addiction exists. Addiction is the opposite of connection. Watch the podcast with myself and Mark Groves, I'll link it here in the show notes. Addiction is the opposite of connection. It is not something that just Gabor Mate has talked about; addiction is the opposite of connection, and by connection I mean connection to the wisdom of the heart because the wisdom of the heart knows no limitations, it knows no bounds. It knows no boundaries because love is all there is and God is love and the God inside of me, the God inside of you, inside of all of us, can we stop and can we ask for forgiveness? Can we cry to Great Spirit, "Thank you. Thank you for letting us be here on this earth and this body blessed by your warmth and cooled by the rain that falls from your sky, that bright blue sky that lights us, the sun that warms us, the ocean that cools us, the wind that cools our face on the top of a mountain after we hiked up sweaty, how that wind and rain can wash it away?" These are the things that are real. Dollar bills and Bitcoin and fiduciary responsibilities and email lists and social media and how many followers do you have, those things aren't fucking real. What we do have in this modern world is a stack of perceived value, but it is not real because the deepest treasure and the greatest wealth on planet earth is the wellbeing inside of yourself. That wellbeing cannot be intellectualized, it can only be felt. It can only be felt with your shirtless back on Mother Earth as you breathe to feel her warmth, as she cradles you with her soil. That wisdom cannot be intellectualized; that wisdom can only be felt.   Josh Trent (9:58): Today, make this the day where we all take one loving, inspired action to reconnect to the wisdom of the heart because I believe the antidote to intellectualization is the wisdom of the heart. The antidote to being a victim and being poisoned by the intellectualized mind is the wisdom of the heart. You can only access the wisdom of the heart through a felt emotional experience and experiential learning of reconnection to God and nature through breath and movement, conscious eating, conscious communication, loving interactions, singing, dancing, storytelling. These are things that God put us on earth to do and to be. So let today be the day. Let today be the day that you let go and maybe you admit to yourself, maybe you can admit to yourself and to Great Spirit that you have been victimized and you were the oppressor yourself and you did the very best you could. You've gotten all the certificates, the degrees, the books, the podcasts, the trainings, the lectures; your library is full; you have all the social media trappings, but yet there's still not peace in your heart. It is from that place where you are authentically real with yourself, to know that peace only comes from your heart and there is power in that, and that power can be trusted.   Josh Trent (10:25): So go out today, feel the wisdom of your heart. Take stock in emotional inventory. With my clients for the Freedom Accelerator Mentorship, when they're on a path of repatterning their subconscious, the very first thing that I do with every client is I have them take what I call an emotional inventory. Draw a line down a piece of paper. On the left side write 10 things that you are caused the most pain by, like things that are really, really hurting you. Maybe it's health or wealth or relationships or trauma. Write them down. On the right side, write 10 things that you feel truly grateful for, like no BS, like things you really, really feel grateful for. Then this is the power: circle the one on the left that's causing you the most pain and circle the one on the right that you're most grateful for. Now, the bridge between knowing and doing is clear. Once you have circled the thing that's causing you the most pain and you have circled the thing that's causing you the most gratitude, this is where you create that bridge of inspired action. You physically call someone. You post it in the Wellness Force group, wellnessforce.com/group. You reach out to a coach, to a facilitator that has experiential learning, and you share with them, "Hey, I took an inventory of where I am. I believe I'm a victim of intellectualization. I have been victimized by my own mind. I have allowed my mind to take over." From that place, the authentically real place, you begin to find peace, and there is power in that. There is power that can be trusted. When from peace, from humility, you are honest with yourself through an inventory and you reach out for support, that is what changes everything. That is what changes everything.   Josh Trent (12:15): So today, do this: take the emotional inventory that I just shared. Have the courage to reach out and share with somebody the one thing and the one thing, the pain and the gratitude, and then state your commitment. "I am committed to changing this one thing and I'm doing it for the thing I'm most grateful for," and that is where you begin. If this resonates with you, if you enjoyed this podcast, if you enjoyed this solocast, if you feel like you are a victim of intellectualization, go over to wellnessforce.com/team. At that place, you can begin your journey. You can reach out to me. You can work with me either one-on-one or in group, or you can simply just be supported at wellnessforce.com/group. Make this the day where you breathe, be at home in your body, and begin to walk a different path, a place that is peaceful and a place where there is power. Because power without peace cannot be trusted. But when you have peace, power can always be trusted. That is the kind of power that creates a life lived well. This is Josh Trent signing off. Have a beautiful day and take action from that place. You are loved, you are supported, and you are on the right path.   Build Immunity. Breathe Deeply.

You can't go to a community and just think about what you going to get from it; that's not community but we also have to prioritize taking care of ourselves. That mutuality is so, so important and community allows us to have that. Especially 2020 and now in 2021, this experience is allowing us to get back to that with some fresh ways." - Erika Kraus     Fixing The Price Transparency Problem   "We have a price transparency problem in the USA that is everywhere in the news right now and when there's not transparency when it comes to your cost, when you actually do not know what you are paying for, you do not know the end cost. You may need to go have this surgery but if you do not know what that actual cost is, there's no accountability and there's so much room for waste to get built in. No one knows.It's really hard to navigate your healthcare choices but when we do have price transparency, you can look at these different surgery centers and see the actual cost and reviews. That's what shopping for healthcare should look like." - Erika Kraus     Links From Today's Show  Erika Kraus 259 James Maskell Solocast | Vision Quest Part 1: Honoring Our Ancestors Solocast | Vision Quest Part 2: Touching Death Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition - Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi - Special 20% off to our listeners with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley - Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code 'JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co - Save 15% on your first order with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE'!

There is this rampant and egregious over and incorrect diagnosis of hypothyroidism. It doesn't mean that hypothyroidism does not exist; of course it does but there have been major outcries even published in the Journal of Thyroid or in Medscape that there is this drift to incorrectly diagnosing people all probably because we're trying to help them but it ends up doing way more harm than it does good. - Dr. Michael Ruscio   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 408 Doctor, clinical researcher and best-selling author of Healthy Gut, Healthy You, Michael Ruscio, DC, returns for the 5th time to share the truth about hypothyroidism, which lab tests you actually need for diagnosing hypothyroidism, sleep's role in helping uncover health issues, and what to do if you have been misdiagnosed with an illness.

The high amount of misdiagnosis of hyperthyroidism we're seeing and while clinics are trying to help, these misdiagnosis is actually causing people more harm than good. Misdiagnosis of Graves' Disease with Apparent Severe Hyperthyroidism in a Patient Taking Biotin Megadoses 395 Ari Whitten Breaking down what it actually means to be diagnosed with hypothyroidism and what is happening in the body especially for men in Josh's scenario. The fear that came up for Josh during his call with the clinician, being told his "body is broken," and how it could've been handled better. What range of TSH we should be looking at to properly diagnose somebody with hyperthyroidism and who will actually benefit from medication. Exceptions in hypothyroid symptoms and prescribed medicine including infertility and young age. How misdiagnosis hurts people mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially as they go from one medication to another medication when they don't actually need them.   [16:00] Sleep's Role In Helping Uncover Health Issues Exploring the different types of therapies available at centers such as Dr. Ruscio's to help people with their hypothyroidism or other health issues. The difference between lab forward clinics that are focused on theories and those that will work directly with the client to help them heal with clinically trialed therapies. Why supplements and prescribed medicines don't actually help address the root cause of our health problems compared to changing our lifestyles. What lifestyle factors Dr. Ruscio looks at first when helping a client: sleep, diet, and other areas. Different diets Josh has tried including the ketogenic diet which made him personally feel sleepy and lethargic compared to something like the Mediterranean diet. How Josh's specific background including having the APO34 gene impacts his health and how his body responds to different foods. 373 Matteo Franceschetti Eight Sleep Sleep biohacks Josh is adding to his life including the Eight Sleep bed which uses thermoregulation to adjust the body temperature for greater rest. How Josh is tracking his body's response to different foods using the NutriSenseCGM device. 397 Kara Collier Save $25 on the first month of any monthly NutriSense plan with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' 365 Dr. Paul Saladino 252 Harpreet Rai | OURA Ring   [26:00] How Singing Can Improve Your Sleep Gaps that might occur with a mattress that tracks HRV compared to the home sleep test that Dr. Ruscio's team does which tracks if a person is snoring to help them with their hypothesis of testing for sleep apnea and other issues. Breaking down why men are at higher risk for sleep problems than women and Dr. Ruscio's theories on why. Weston A. Price Foundation 321 Sally Fallon Morell & Hilda Labrada Gore How your sleep angle can play a role if you are seeing metabolic insufficiencies and suboptimization. Why singing and playing different woodwind instruments like a didgeridoo have shown to reduce obstructed sleep apnea because of how it improves the tone of the musculature in the palate and throat. Tatch   [30:30] Which Lab Tests Are Beneficial? What tests Dr. Ruscio suggests Josh and similar people in his shoes do including an expanded cardiovascular panel to get a better sense on what Josh's risk looks like and help him make modifications. Breaking down which lab tests are actually essential to help someone improve their thyroid health. Why it helps to do an in depth look at what is bothering you: snoring, jaw clenching, dry mouth, receding gums, exhaustion, or drool as well as your history with braces and headgear. The fact that the one thing that will tank metabolism and testosterone levels for males is a an undiagnosed sleep issue. Exploring which workouts and weight lifting exercises that really help move the needle for testosterone and general health. Why the impact of exercise on hormones is actually fairly minimal. 380 Mike Mutzel What mouth taping is and if it might benefit your personalized health. Why mouth taping might not drastically help move the health needle for you compared to diet and exercise like it has for people such as Dr. Ruscio. Paul Chek | All Is God Why even the healthiest people who perform at a high athletic level will also face bad days but with the right help they should feel heard, things should make sense, and your clinician shouldn't make you feel afraid. Signs that you should look out for when following the advice of one clinician over the other. Why a trusted clinician is one that is open-minded, looks at different approaches, and is cautious.

Why this is so problematic is because literally once per week at our clinic I will see a case of someone who has been misdiagnosed with hypothyroidism; it's really that rampant in today's society."  - Dr. Michael Ruscio   The Right Way To Speak To Patients   "When people aren't feeling well, there's already a predilection for patients to be a little bit anxious and their minds go to the worst case scenario. I've been there before myself; these thoughts happen and if you prey upon that, it's really the wrong way to handle these conversations because you end up making the person feel worse than they actually are. As clinicians, we should be trying to leverage a placebo in a positive and say something like, 'Hey, you can heal and you can recover. It's not that bad and these things can be repaired," rather than telling patients like in your case, "Your body is broken." Telling people their body is broken causes harm mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially." - Dr. Michael Ruscio   Do You Really Need Hypothyroid Medication?     "Many of these lab forward clinical models are predicated upon theory. It's a theory that your TSH shouldn't be above 2 or 2.5. So, what we're trying to use at our clinic is proof that when people have certain symptoms and they make diet, lifestyle or supplement changes, there is clinical outcome data showing these changes improve their symptoms. And a much better model is to put that lifestyle change process into a cascade of decision making trees that you can walk the person through until you get the result. Sure, some lab work guides that slightly but it's really the person and their symptoms and their response to therapeutics that drives the model predominantly compared to just treating labs and treating numbers that is again just based upon theory that chases a number and doesn't focus on the person." - Dr. Michael Ruscio     Links From Today's Show  278 Dr. Michael Ruscio - What’s Really Going On With My Thyroid? 236 Dr. Michael Ruscio - Healing The Second Brain 223 Dr. Michael Ruscio - Healthy Gut, Healthy You 119 Dr. Michael Ruscio - The Orthorexia Connection Dr. Ruscio Radio Podcast Healthy Gut, Healthy You by Dr. Michael Ruscio Thyroid immunity – What Are Healthy Levels for Thyroid Antibodies Misdiagnosis of Graves' Disease with Apparent Severe Hyperthyroidism in a Patient Taking Biotin Megadoses 395 Ari Whitten 373 Matteo Franceschetti Eight Sleep 397 Kara Collier Save $25 on the first month of any monthly NutriSense plan with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' 365 Dr. Paul Saladino 252 Harpreet Rai | OURA Ring Weston A.

How these groups with dogmatic, controlling leaders begin to grow an infection of resentment within and it begins to unravel the brotherhood. The fact that the old school patriarchy was infected and has operated from that space for a millennia but we're now witnessing this positive shift away from that mentality. Why it's foolish to think that evil does not exist because in the world there are fear and love, chaos and order, dark and night...there are always opposing forces because all is God. Paul Chek | All Is God   [12:30] Authoritative Playfulness Why it's not real to believe in "good vibes only" but what is real is to have "authoritative playfulness." Breaking down what authoritative playfulness is and why it's what modern men need to cultivate. How authoritative playfulness gives men the skills to take care of themselves and their family against evil. The deep ego wounds we still carry with us from people being mistreated for thousands of years: greed, resentment, and betrayal. Why we have square thinking when we need to think in a circular way to live in our 360 world. Exploring why men are afraid of this new way of being in their masculine selves. Why our ego will fight any time our way of being is challenged with a new idea or with change. Holodynamics | Dr. Vernon Woolf 404 Jay Brown Dr. Vernon Woolf's work on holodynes and how beliefs are passed on to us from our past generations. Why, like technology, we must also always be evolving and challenging ourselves to grow.   [20:30] The Three Phases Of Intelligence What steps you can take to help the men in your life realize that they do need to get in touch with love and Spirit. The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell Unpacking the 'tipping point' we all face when we have experienced a way of being that is creating pain. Why we encounter the tipping point every single day and how we can show up by choosing to be aware of our reality and then decide how we will adapt and serve in that awareness. 086 Mark Divine Tools that help Josh be aware, show up, adapt, and serve including breathwork. How to show up as a better man by following the three phases of intelligence: gather, apply, and embody. How men can apply breathwork and greater awareness in their relationships to help them solve difficult moments especially when old programming is going on in your mind's background. 358 Dr. Belisa Vranich breathwork.io The power of breathwork and how taking a deep, vertical breath will help reset your nervous system. Why the biggest gift we can give to ourselves, our partner, and our space is asking for permission to learn so that we can become a better leader. How you can become a better leader for your team by asking members to help you understand any stress they're feeling if the energy is off at work.   [30:00] How Men Can Build Greater Emotional Intelligence Why true intelligence goes beyond just how smart you are or how you speak. How we can all gain greater emotional intelligence by taking very complex things, dropping into our heart, and speak with honest language. How Josh's M21 Guide with six practices will help you on your path to embody greater emotional and physical intelligence. What people can look forward to in starting a breathwork practice and the science behind how it helps shift the brain's chemistry. The biggest factors that cause people to be stuck in the sympathetic or "freeze" state: trauma (big or small). How you can get out of the sympathetic mode: hugging, nature, exercise, or conscious relationships but the no. 1 is the pulse of the breath. Why we become victims of intellectualization where we think that life has to be this crazy, hard complex obstacle but it's all programming. What if money was no object? by Alan Watts The power of being aware of what "masks" you are still wearing in your everyday life instead of showing up as your authentic self. Why sometimes fear wears a smile when we're all about "good vibes only" and putting on this front that everything is fine.

It's so hard because we are fighting biology. Steven Pressfield calls it 'the resistance.' So, what is resistance's number one job? What is a holodyne's number one job? What is a core belief that got installed almost like a microchip in a computer; what is its core job? Its core job is to function without change. So, when I am presented with new information that goes against the construct of the programs that were installed in my mind that activate the holodynes and the beliefs and the way of being, there is going to be a system error, right? That is when your soul has to come in, see things from an observer perspective, and override the programming." - Josh Trent   The Tipping Point We Face Every Day   "We all have a tipping point that comes when we have experienced a way of being that is creating pain. We change through pleasure and pain; it's an axis and the reason that dark comes really strong right before light is because every day we're in a tipping point. Every single day you and I as men can choose to show up as authoritative playful leaders based on our environment and what we're aware of happening in it. How can you do this? First you have to choose that you want to be aware of what is actually going on in reality; not the subjective reality but the objective reality that you can see from 30,000 feet. After that, ask yourself, 'What is my decision making faculty about how I'm going to adapt and serve in that awareness?' "  - Josh Trent   What It Means To Be An Authoritative Playful Man     "Authoritative Playfulness is what men need to cultivate because if we can be authoritative and playful, that can be trusted. Authoritative means you take care of your body, you take care of your mental health; maybe you learn how to use firearms properly to protect you and your family, maybe you learn how to grow food. Maybe you learn all kinds of skills that can protect from a place of peace and love against evil because evil is real just like love is real. Evil is real because we are still at the consciousness level where we are still carrying out the wishes of evil and those come from greed, resentment, and betrayal which are all ego wounding.... ...They are still these deep, bloody ego wounds that we are uncovering from thousands of years of people being mistreated and honestly trying to be led from dogmatism. So, we get to be authoritative and we get to be playful because we have to have fun and we have to be loving. That's the art form of being authoritative playful and that's what us men have to embody today."     Links From Today's Show  The Art of Masculinity | Episode 191: Change Your Shoreline with Josh Trent 405 Tim Corcoran Solocast | Vision Quest Part 1: Honoring Our Ancestors Solocast | Vision Quest Part 2: Touching Death 196 Aubrey Marcus  King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine by Robert Moore and Douglas Gillette Paul Chek | All Is God Holodynamics | Dr. Vernon Woolf 404 Jay Brown The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference by Malcolm Gladwell 086 Mark Divine 358 Dr. Belisa Vranich What if money was no object? by Alan Watts Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community About Josh Trent Josh Trent is the Founder of Wellness Force Media, host of the Wellness Force Podcast and the creator of the BREATHE: Breath & Wellness Program.

When you really dig into the inner work process, the first place to begin is to stop worshipping and praying at the altar of perpetual growth and ascension. We are obsessed. We are addicted. We are fixated on and relient on this need to be special and this need to grow and this denies us the experience of a kind of falling apart. No man wants to fall apart and come into contact with the realities of what his grief might have to teach him. The fact is that when we really get present to it, what we're actually afraid of is that we don't know what that's going to look like. We are terrified of what will happen on the other side of not worshipping the 'God of Growth' and beginning to allow the wisdom of this grief to enter. - Connor Beaton   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 406 TEDx Speaker and the Founder of ManTalks, Connor Beaton, shares his own journey of coming back from rock bottom, the healing power of shadow work, how men can begin the process of fathering their inner child, and why the war of the sexes is officially over.   Are you ready to begin the journey towards deep radical healing?   Discover why pain has its own intelligence and what it can teach us when we are present to its guiding wisdom.   CURED Nutrition Save 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/cured It's taken me over a year to find the right hemp and CBD company to introduce to the Wellness Force Community and I could not be more thrilled that it's CURED Nutrition!

How the mask and the illusion he had built around himself started to crumble and impact those around him. His past destructive behavior patterns and how he worked to overcome and be anew. So-called "rules" that men learn including "You don't talk about what it's like to be a man" especially if it doesn't fit into the typical male role. Francis Weller Breaking down how our pain as its own intelligence and why men are taught not to observe that and it is crippling them. The fact that Connor couldn't cope with the pain that he felt inside that led to fights, dangerous behavior, and infidelity because that's what he thought a man should do to stuff it down. Why we shouldn't suppress our feelings and pain but explore and express them to help us heal.   [15:00] Pain Has Its Own Wisdom How embracing the emotional pain during his 10-Day Vision Quest allowed Josh to heal past wounds he had carried for decades. The fact that our body is always trying to communicate with us at all times. Connor's experience really tuning into his pain for the first time and see what it was doing to those that he loved the most. What steps men can take to begin unpacking and exploring their emotions and pain. Why we are obsessed and relient on this need to be special and this need to grow but it denies us the experience of falling apart and healing. The fear Connor had that his life would dismantle should he allow himself to feel his pain and listen to his grief. Carl Jung Questions to begin asking yourself including, 'What have you been denying about in your life?' What it means to go "into the cave" and experience the dark night of the soul that will ultimately lead you on your Hero's Journey.   [30:30] Shadow Work & Self Healing Breaking down the keys to shadow work and begin the self healing process. How to pay attention to how you react and why that response is so important to understanding your shadow and where you go when you are unconscious. The benefits of keeping a journal of what you react to, how you reacted, and what narrative runs through your mind when the shadow self comes out. Unpacking the differences between responding from the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous systems and applying that to your fight, fight, or freeze response. Exploring capital "T" and lower case "t" trauma for men especially if they have experienced sexual trauma, physical abuse, or a family member with a mental health illness. Why men who have been abused either have a "fawn" response where they freeze or they people please because it is safer for them. Unpacking the co-dependent saying "Happy wife, happy life" and how it keeps people back from doing the real inner work. Why we, and especially men, over rely on our intellectual understanding of things but struggle with intuition and emotions in relationships. Conner's decision to not call it therapy but training because men are missing skill sets that they actually need in order to have fully functional relationships, careers, health, romantic relationships, and self fulfillment. What past narratives Connor had to unlearn so that he could learn new trainings such as the arts of self discipline.   [44:30] How To Begin The Shadow Work Exploring the law of reciprocity and how it relates to things happening for us instead of to us. Why he believes that in some way karma is what we attract because we believe we deserve it. How our pain unconsciously attracts what we don't want in life and that's why we should be paying attention to what it's telling us. Why the shadow work is not a golden bullet for automic healing but it is an important part of the process. The importance of easing into doing the shadow work by first realizing what areas of your life you are avoiding. A shadow work game Connor would play with himself by catching himself whenever he lied to others and then autocorrect that behavior real time. What he believes shadow work is in 2021 and why so many people are abusing the word and practice. How Carl Jung came up with the concept of the shadow self and shadow work. Connor's own experience with shadow work and working with parts of himself that he was hiding from others. How Connor helps people with addiction and the 12- step process. Why he believes that addiction is often an attachment dysfunction. How spirituality comes into place with the process of healing from addiction.   [57:30] The War Of The Sexes Is Over The different programs that are available at ManTalks to help you with the healing process. What the ManTalks group, The Alliance, is about and why it's a safe space for men to have challenge based relationships to help them grow. Why we need to stop focusing on bringing a matriarchy or a patriarchy into power and instead create a humanity arch together to lead from a place of wholeness and not wounding. Stephen Jenkinson Breaking down the actual etymology of the word, "patriarchy," why it doesn't mean putting men on a pedestal, and how it applies to our world in 2021. Why a lot of the work that we do as men is to learn how to father ourselves. How ManTalks and The Alliance help men tend to and father themselves but also integrate and initiate themselves through the obstacles they're facing into more sovereign, self led men who can bring their gifts into the world. Why there is no more "war of the sexes" and we can work together as one in society while honoring our core differences and similarities. The spiritual courage to surrender to change and allow ourselves to evolve and mature.

When men enter this work, they think, 'Okay, I'm going to work on my shadow; I'm going to do shadow work,' or 'I'm going to go to therapy, I'm going to get a therapist.' They do so almost always from the place of: I just want that one ultimate equation that's going to liberate me so I can get away from this. They want to make it as pragmatic as possible but you know, you're entering into territory that may not work like that and you have have to consider that. Consider that what got you into the dysfunction that you have been in may not be the path that is going to get you out of it. That perhaps, you're going to have to learn a very different, equally valuable lesson when you begin the real inner work." - Connor Beaton   Facing Your Shadow   "Carl Jung's work focused on facing the shadow; facing the parts of you that you have been rejecting and hiding and avoiding. Start there to begin your inner work journey and ask, 'What have I been rejecting about myself? What have I been avoiding? What have I been denying about myself and lying about in my life?' Start there by working on those aspects because when we do, we begin to reveal that parts of ourselves that we have hidden from the people that we love and then we wonder why we don't feel like they really know us.... ...So, begin with the things that you have been neglecting about who you are or begin with the parts that you have been rejecting of what your life actually looks like. For some men this is very challenging because it means that they have to come into contact with the truth that maybe they're not as happy and things aren't as perfect as they had been selling to the world for years." - Connor Beaton   How To Father Your Inner Child     "The work that we do in many ways is about learning how to father ourselves as men. That we stop offloading the responsibility of our wellness, of our strength, of our confidence, of our wellbeing onto other people because the truth is, if we're really honest, there's a lot of men out there who have no idea how to tend to the wounded child that they've been carrying around for years. Where has he gone? If you've been abused as a child, where did that child go? Nowhere; he's in you - he is you and if you don't know how to take care of him, he's going to cause havoc in your life. If you don't know how to parent him and father him, he's going to cause havoc if you become a father." - Connor Beaton   Links From Today's Show  ManTalks Podcast Get a discount for Man Talks Shadow Work Program with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' 386 Mark Groves ManTalks Podcast: Josh Trent – Breaking Through the Barriers of Our Own Past, Pain and Failures Francis Weller Carl Jung Stephen Jenkinson Duey Freeman Paleovalley - Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code 'JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co Botanic Tonics - Save 20% with the code 'WELLNESS20' Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Connor Beaton Facebook Instagram Twitter ManTalks Facebook YouTube Instagram   About Connor Beaton Connor Beaton,the founder of ManTalks. He was raised to believe that being a man meant you had to follow certain rules. The most notable one is like the first rule of Fight Club: don’t talk about it. For most of his life, he believed all men had the same rule. Shut up and deal with it. Man up. Over the next few years, he learned to take his trauma, shame, and denial—all the shadowy parts of himself—and integrate them. He spent thousands of hours learning and training. He consulted psychologists, historians, neurologists, and authors. Connor trained for years under mentors and leaders in Jungian psychology, somatic therapy, and holotropic breathwork. He even apprenticed under a disciple of Carl Jung himself. In 2014, Connor founded ManTalks as a grassroots movement to further the cause: giving men the tools and training to create a truly self-led life.   Build Immunity. Breathe Deeply.

Yes; you have a purpose for being here. There is a reason you took birth and you took form on planet Earth at this time in this year. If you're courageous enough, that can be discovered.

Why do people do a Vision Quest? How does one prepare for it? Different types of Vision Quests and how the are structured. Myths and truths about Vision Quests How many people are able to answer the question, "Why am I here?" after attending a Vision Quest. 196 Aubrey Marcus Why Josh decided to do a Vision Quest with the goal of clearing out generational pain and projections passed down to him from family. Who a Vision Quest is for and how to know if you are not quite ready for one yet. 032 Gay Hendricks What is the 'voice from soul' and how to listen to it. Tim's original life path studying computer science and the moment he knew a life in cubicles was not for him.   [15:30] The Work It Takes To Live Your Purpose Why living your purpose might not be easy; you may have to make sacrifices and work on it every day. The work you will have to do to grow in your purpose the moment you "plant its seed." Why, to quote Mark Twain, "The two most important days of your life are the day you were born and the day you know why." How Mark is still working, 2 decades later, to continue to fulfill his Vision Quest. What struggles people are facing in our modern world when they decide to go on a Vision Quest. Why it's not common to see younger people do Vision Quests but often people in their thirties and forties facing midlife crises. Breaking down what a Rite of Passage is and what it means to Tim. Why Rites of Passage aren't just essential for the individual but to the community as well. The benefits of place based cultures to help younger generations discover their roles compared to living in our modern capitalistic world.   [29:30] Beauty & Power in Ceremony How we can practically use ceremony and traditions in our own communities and wellness tribes. Novah's Baby Blessing ceremony that Josh and Carrie held with close friends and family which included singing the same song, "Peace Like A River" Tim and Josh sung at the sweat lodge during the Vision Quest. 378 Dr. Michael Ruscio The powerful medicine in singing including how it improves our sleeping patterns. What ancient native practices can teach us about life now. Common cultural points he looks for in different tribes and what we can learn from them. Why there is so much powerful healing in crying that connect us all and we shouldn't be ashamed of our emotions. Redefining what it means to be a man and why it is so needed now in 2021.   [35:00] Rites Of Passage For Each Stage Of Life Why opening up and crying is so good for everyone. The incredible power of quality connecting with others that we experience even if you only see that person once or twice a year. Josh and Carrie's Baby Ceremony as a Rite of Passage for them as parents but also welcoming in the spirit of their child. The impact it has on children to not be held by their parents right away when they are born. Comparing the spiritual impact of hospital vs home births and holding spiritual ceremonies in the family space. How Spirit talks to us in omens, dreams, symbols, signs, and synchronicities. Taking a closer look at how our society has been built to disconnect us from self but also harvest and divide us. The fact that people are driven to a quest in the first place because they feel disconnected from self, soul, the earth, and the mystery of life. How we've been taught society's big lie: We are separate from nature. What happens to us when we physically disconnect ourselves from the earth and its wildness. The great void that has been in our hearts since we left Mother Nature for the modern lifestyles. Josh's experience during the 4-day fast and what Mother Nature wanted to teach him. What the Vision Quest gave Josh that Ayahuasca ceremonies couldn't provide him in the past. Why the medicine that the Vision Quest helped ground him in the earth. The importance of embodying and applying  what lessons you learn along the healing journey rather than sprinting from ceremony to ceremony.   [50:50] Vision Quests Vs. Ayahuasca and Psychedelics To Heal What it means to Tim to lead people on Vision Quests and hear the stories of participants like Josh. Unpacking the attachment theory and applying it to our relationship with the earth. Why we need to have a secure attachment to our soul in order to fully experience life. The power of realizing that first and foremost, our identity stems from this earth. What the first nights of the 4 day fast were like for Josh as he had the most frightening nightmares. The blending of the dream world and the waking world that people will experience as they reconnect with Mother Earth. How a Vision Quest is the ultimate shedding of distractions and intentionally shifting one's identity from the place of the ego to one's soul. Why some people can be more harmed and wounded after a psychedelic experience than they were before. The fact that there's a time and a place for healing ourselves with natural remedies but we also have to look at modern methods that fit our lifestyles today. How Josh's Vision Quest is shaping Wellness Force's rebranding  and mission in 2021. 312 Kevin Kelly What steps we can do to live consciously with technology while unlocking greater health and wellness.   [1:11:30] Honoring Our Ancestral Past Why many people see a Vision Quest as a Native American practice but it has been practiced cross culturally for centuries. His and Mark's hope to redefine the term Vision Quest to honor all cultures and our ancestors who have practiced it. How years of colonialism, capitalism have severed our connection to Mother Earth. Connecting our past and the moment in our ancestral history when our families immigrated in order to survive and live a better life. How Josh explored grief during this Vision Quest by asking himself what grief and sadness he was not allowing himself to feel. Why Josh and his partner, Carrie, have chosen the middle name, Mauro, for their son to honor Josh's grandfather and his ancestral heritage. Exploring the healing mechanism that happens when we honor our grief and sadness including that of our ancestors. Why the worst part of trauma is not the trauma itself but how we hold onto it and internalize it that we traumatize ourselves over and over. The intense grief that Tim felt when he realized that full community healing happens after 500 years.   [1:32:30] The Difference Between Pain & Suffering Why there are easier paths to learn from our pain but there is no quick fix. Breaking down why suffering = pain x resistance. Painful but power truths including "pain is inevitable" and "when we argue with reality, we're going to lose." The fact that you are not the only one going through pain and trauma; we all are experiencing that on one level of another. Exploring the positive side to pain if we are opening to hold and explore that. The negative beliefs passed down to Josh from his parents and how he internalized them until a Vision Quest helped him begin to let them go. Why 'hurt people' unknowlying hurt other people. Alan Watts | All Retch & No Vomit How to uncover your own spiritual courage during the inner work and which tools can support you on your journey. Why the earth will serve us when we serve it. The importance of giving yourself to the land and your community; not self-actualization. 255 Ted Ryce Paleovalley - Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code 'JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Botanic Tonics - Save 20% off with code 'WELLNESS20' breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community     Power Quotes From The Show Redefining Masculinity   "What does it mean to be a man? I define masculinity as emotional maturity in a very simple way: It's the ability to be aware of, accept, and express the full range of emotions that we have in a healthy way. In fact, that can be a reasonable definition for emotional intelligence in general for all genders. It can be hard to open up; we're still swimming in these waters of programmed behavior of hiding our feelings. But once we do begin to share, others feel more comfortable opening up as well." - Tim Corcoran   The Antidote To Unhealthy Desire   "What happens to us as human beings when we do physically disconnect ourselves from the earth and its wildness, and ourselves from our wildness? Then we start getting sick in body, we start losing our wellness, and our minds start to struggle. We start to have mental health issues that we never had before as we cut ourselves off emotionally and spiritually. Then we wonder why we struggle. Each year the machine just picks up more and more pace, more and more technology and it's like there's a great void in our hearts that came about when we first left our natural roots and the whole time we've been looking to fill that with things like a car or a job but it can never fill us up. We can never get enough of what we truly don't need. So, what is the antidote to desire? It's connection." - Tim Corcoran   Are You Ready For A Vision Quest?     "A Vision Quest is the ultimate shedding of distractions - whether it's tents, warmth, or Facebook likes, those are the trappings of the ego. Those things are what brings us safety, security, and comfort which are all allusions of the ego. A Vision Quest is the intentional process of shifting one's identity from the place of the ego to the place of one's soul. For that to happen, the ego has to loosen its grip during this shedding process and that isn't comfortable. That's why it's important for people have this honest calling and a certain courage to do a Vision Quest because they have to be ready to let go of the things that keep them comfortable. You will get uncomfortable during the process but that is a healthy thing because we live in a culture that worships the 'God of Comfort' and we lose our souls to it, maybe even our planet as a result." - Tim Corcoran     Links From Today's Show  Tim Corcoran 196 Aubrey Marcus 032 Gay Hendricks 378 Dr. Michael Ruscio 312 Kevin Kelly Alan Watts | All Retch & No Vomit 255 Ted Ryce Aubrey Marcus Podcast | #195 Humans and Nature with Tim Corcoran Paleovalley - Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code 'JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Botanic Tonics - Save 20% off with code 'WELLNESS20' Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Purpose Mountain Facebook Instagram Twitter Twin Eagles Wilderness School Facebook Instagram YouTube   About Tim Corcoran Tim Corcoran is the founder of Purpose Mountain, where he serves as a certified Nature Based Purpose Guide to support people who hear the call from wild nature to discover their purpose, those with a burning desire to live their vision and a willingness to work with resistance and fears through the Ecology of Self and Voice Dialogue.

When we operate from a victim mentality, we disempower ourselves. When you're disempowered, how are you going to do anything? How are you going to change your life? You have to take responsibility and face the truth of what you're actually doing and not make it about someone else, turning your attention to something outside of yourself as the reason why you don't have enough money, or you haven't found the partner that you're looking for, or that you have to wear a mask in the world. - Jay Brown   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*     Wellness Force Radio Episode 404 Life and Personal Development Coach, Jay Brown, discusses the breakthrough science of Holodynamics, shares how you can identify and deprogram old beliefs, explores why we seek validation from others, and reveals how to find your own unique healing practice. Are you thoughts and beliefs actually your own?

Listen To Episode 404 As Jay Brown Uncovers:   [1:30] Deprogramming Old Thoughts & Beliefs Jay Brown Dr. Vernon Woolf | Holodynamics Holodynamics by Dr. Vernon Woolf Holodynamics For A Better World 248 Lauren Handel Zander 317 Lauren Handel Zander Jay's background, purpose, and where life has led him today. Why his focus today is to free himself of all the limiting beliefs, programs, and conditions of what the status quo has taught us. How he is guiding other people through the same process of deprogramming their unconscious thoughts and beliefs. Why some programmed unconscious thoughts and beliefs have caused us pain and suffering in our lives. Jay and Josh's shared experiences with Ayahuasca in Costa Rica. Some of Jay's biggest life turning points that have made him who he is today. David R. Hawkins The pain Jay fought through as his marriage ended and lost his little sister all in the same year in 2013. Why those experiences forced him to face things he wasn't willing to work on in the past. The moment he realized his journey with plant medicine, workshops, and spending time in wellness communities was actually a tool of distraction for the real work he had to do to heal his pain and suffering. [13:00] Why We Seek Validation From Other What led Jay to create The Evo Room (Evolution Room) in San Diego, California to help people relieve their stress, anxiety, depression and ultimately find themselves. How receiving so much positive validation from participants at The Evo Room was unknowingly leading him to a co-dependent relationship to cover up his pain. The fact that many people who help others don't recognize that they are in these co-dependent strategies because they are not generating the change within themselves but relying on the energies of others to make them feel better. How the thoughts and behaviors we learn as children to please our parents carries on into adulthood. The impact of not allowing children to make their choices and be free in who they are so that they can look towards themselves for self-acceptance and support rather than turn to others. How Jay was able to make the switch from external to internal validation and begin to fill his own cup. Why our energy is being stolen every day from other people including the government plus how we are stealing energy from other people. How dis-ease happens when we do not use the energy that the divine has gifted to us in order to fuel our mind and body. [25:00] Holodynamics For Personal Transformation Tools such has conscious relationships Jay has learned to help other people include entertainers and athletes. How holodynamics has helped Jay with his own personal growth and transformation. Why it's so important to go into your subconscious and understand your programmed thoughts that drive your actions and behaviors. What the tracking method is and how it has helped Jay to go into his own subconscious mind and identify limiting beliefs and energies the lie beneath in the background. Breaking down how we self sabotage ourselves. Dr. Vernon Woolf's work during the Cold War and how a holodynamics center were opened to try to help people in the Soviet Union. Explaining how everything around us from nature to ordinary objects are energy and have information that we can tap into. How Dr. Woolf was able to identify and heal the poison that was injected into his body with holodynamics. [38:15] Finding Your Unique Healing Practice Heart Math Institute Stealing Fire by Steven Kotler and Jamie Wheal 209 Jamie Wheal How Soul Factory came to be after an Ayahuasca ceremony in Costa Rica that Jay and his friend, Alan, had attended. The journey their friendship has gone through over the years and the tight bond that they have today. Most problems people run into when they begin seeking help for their depression or anxiety. Why many helpful healing practices for mental health such as psychedelics and trauma are being censored by major platforms like Google and YouTube. The Soul Factory modality and how it has been designed to help people find the answer within themselves for which healing practice works best for them. Why releasing all of the deep conditioning and programming isn't about the tactics but forgiveness. Why the answers you seek, especially on how to heal yourself, don't come from the outside but from within yourself. 400 Cal Callahan The Great Unlearn Podcast Unpacking why we're also disconnected and find it difficult to forgive and love as humans. The distractions we face when we turn towards outside of ourselves with social media, the news, and the pandemic that keep us from turning within. How we disempower ourselves when we operate from a victim mentality. [55:00] Programmed Codependence vs Our Independence Unpacking Jay's own wellness journey, how he has evolved, and what he's still working on now. How to use the Energy that Source gives us to help power our lives. Why Jay didn't use his Energy for himself but he would give it away to someone else. How Jay's parents unknowingly programmed him to look for external validation rather than focusing on self-validation. Why we are all born free in this world with our own impulses and desires but then we're shaped and molded by our parents' experiences and programs as well as society. How we're programmed to crave co-dependency from everyone else in our lives and we don't even realize it. The power of living freely with our own independence compared to only feeling happy when we're codependent. His thinking patterns consciously and subconsciously of putting people on a pedestal and wanting to connect with them so that he would be seen as an amazing person by his peers. Why we shouldn't rely on the Law Of Attraction or manifestation but focus on ourselves as we gather, apply, and embody what we learn. [1:04:30] Breaking Free From Old Patterns How old behavior patterns and thought loops do not serve us and can actually lead to greater health issues starting at the cellular level. The process that Jay takes people on to help them begin the healing process. How to begin healing the most prominent and uncomfortable emotions that you are feeling. The power of energy as information and how our emotions are carrying that information for us to receive and understand our physical pain and ailment. What steps you can take to be present with your emotions and learn what they want to communicate with you. How we've been conditioned to turn away from negative emotions and ignore or distract ourselves from them when we really should be tuning in. The Hidden Messages in Water by Masaru Emoto An example of how one of his clients began her healing process when she tuned into the emotion, rage, and was gifted with the knowledge of what action she could take moving forward. How tuning into emotions during the inner work can also help us heal generational trauma and pain.

So, I am a hologram, you are a hologram. We look real but essentially we are projection of consciousness into this dimension of reality. We can understand and interact with the universe through images. If I ask you to remember your first day of high school, a memory will come as an image in your mind of that experience. You can access information through holograms, through these images and even deeper when you sit with them. We can use these holograms as a way to communicate with things; animate or inanimate in the world." - Jay Brown   Generate Your Own Energy   "Many people don't recognize that they're still in these co-dependent strategies even though they're doing the work and they're helping so many people. They're making great progress yet they don't realize how they're taking energy from other people because they're not able to generate that energy within themselves and this is what we were taught by our parents. As our parents asked us to do this and do that, we turned our attention to what they wanted, not the impulse in what our hearts desired. Overtime, that trains us to turn our attention to others and that is the strategy or the program that I had personally been running with for most of my life." - Jay Brown   Fill Your Own Cup     "If you aren't using the energy that the Divine gives to you to fill your own cup and allow the cells of your body to have the sustenance from that energy and then you're giving it away and then needing to steal energy from someone else because of that, that dynamic is messing people up in the world. This is how dis-ease happens." - Jay Brown   Links From Today's Show  Dr. Vernon Woolf | Holodynamics Holodynamics by Dr. Vernon Woolf Holodynamics For A Better World 248 Lauren Handel Zander 317 Lauren Handel Zander David R.

The toxicity of "cancel culture" and being opening to different possibilities for COVID-19 instead of seeing the vaccine as the only real solution. Examples of cancel culture and every day censorship including YouTube taking down Dr. Pierre Coriat's public statement to the US government about the possibility of healing COVID-19 with ivermectin. What we may see happen if it's determined that ivermectin was and is actually a beneficial treatment especially for those who are unable to get the vaccine due to other health concerns.

Why our PH and electrolyte levels need to be tightly regulated and what can happen if they go up or down by even just a little bit.

Other common sources of brain fog including immunogenic foods such as eggs for Robb in his case. 125 Dr. Kirk Parsley Why our sodium intake decreases dramatically when we shift to a whole food, minimally processed diet because most of our sodium came from the processed foods we ate before.

Why we tend to be scared of sodium because we so often associate it with processed foods.

Why there really is no beneficial difference in the source of sodium you consume whether that is sea salt or refined table salt. Guillermo Ruiz  Why iodine was first introduced to foods like salt because in the early 1900s people suffered goiters due to living more interior and not consuming fish as often.

Unpacking why hypertensive individuals that are put on a low sodium diet don't really see a change in their blood pressure. Why hydration is not synonymous with water but with both water and electrolytes. How we get into a hyponatremic state when we keep drinking water but our sodium levels are very low. Why our hands, feet, and also brain swell when we over-hydrate and experience edema. What happens when we sweat and why we mainly excrete sodium but not really potassium and magnesium. Discussing when you should consume LMNT: pre, during, or post your workout or sauna. How adequate post training or post stress sodium dramatically enhances recovery because of its connection to cortisol release. What quantity of LMNT Robb personally drinks before going to the gym, class prep, and doing jiu jitsu exercise as a practical example. How Robb's focus on nutrition in the past compared to now has dramatically improved his personal wellness. Andy Stumpf | Cleared Hot Podcast Why it's important to keep your electrolytes stable pre, peri, and post workout for greater recovery. What you might experience if you consume too much LMNT or sodium. Why LMNT might taste very sweet when you're low on sodium and then you notice the sodium taste when you're leveled.

How Robb adds the chocolate flavored LMNT to his 2nd cup of coffee in the morning. What we do to disrupt our electrolyte status without even realizing it.

Paleovalley - Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code 'JOSH' Belcampo Meat Co Botanic Tonics breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show   The Dangers Of Low Electrolyte Levels   "Somewhere along the line hydration became synonymous with water but it is not. If you look in a textbook of medical physiology, hydration is water and electrolytes in specific ratios. If you just add water you end up in a hyponatremic state; a low sodium state and this explains things like hand swelling. Most people are familiar with experiencing their hands swelling up when they go hiking and they drink lots of water, they're sweating like crazy, and they're swelling up because virtually nobody supplements with sodium... ...When our sodium levels are low, we will tend to get edema and this is when our hands, feet, and brain will also swell. This is what kills people when they over hydrate with only water like in hazing events or while training for and running in marathons. The next time you go hiking, drink pickle juice or LMNT, and notice how you don't swell." - Robb Wolf   Why Sodium Is So Important When You Sweat   "When we sweat, we mainly excrete sodium. We don't really excrete potassium or magnesium; there's a little bit but it's orders of magnitude different. So, in that high sweat scenario: a sauna, exercise, ruck marching; stuff like that - you need to mainly focus on sodium. Over the course of a month yes we need sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphates, bicarbonates - all of the electrolytes but in that time course of a hard, physical event or sauna, the main problem is the rapid and significant loss of sodium. So, that is another reason why you really have to target that." - Robb Wolf   Achieving Stable Sodium Levels Pre, Peri, and Post Workout     "Adequate post training or post stress sodium dramatically enhances recovery and there are a ton of mechanisms for why but one of the things that adequate sodium levels effect is cortisol release because it's less of a stress. If the body is getting adequate sodium, it's signalling the body that it's okay and it has enough nutrient resources to be able to recover. So pre workout sodium intake is really important depending on the duration of the event and then on the recovery side we also need adequate sodium and electrolytes.... ...During the workout, sipping a drink like LMNT that will keep you well hydrated. When I was trying to do training like this ten plus years ago I would just be absolutely crushed after a workout and I think it was because I wasn't properly addressing my electrolyte levels like I am today. This pre, peri, and then post supplementation is really important to be on point if you want to optimize the whole workout experience." - Robb Wolf   Links From Today's Show  Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Click here to get your FREE e-book, The Fundamental Guide To Fasting by Robb Wolf 357 Robb Wolf 103 Robb Wolf The Case For Better Meat | Robb Wolf What Is Wellness?

They find that the people who have the most stable blood sugar actually live the longest lives. When I got married, I realized just how amazing life is and so I wanted to create a tonic that would help me promote longevity on a regular basis. So I found ingredients that would first of all help bring down inflammation naturally but also stabilize blood sugar because I know it's so important and so many people are lacking it. This search led me to apple cider vinegar and I was just blown away by it. Hippocrates supposedly it and it's been used for thousands of years for so many different applications." - Autumn Smith   Our Beautiful Connection With Nature   "We are in this world today where we think there's a pill for every ill and that's the answer were should be looking for but our company, Paleovalley, and our products like our Apple Cider Vinegar Complex are about sharing the beautiful wisdom that exists between earth and our bodies. We've evolved using that intelligence yet somehow I feel like we have become very disconnected from nature and so our product line focuses on trying to help people come back to that. We look at the wisdom of Mother Earth and we just bring the highest quality ingredients from nature into a version that people can use on a daily basis." - Autumn Smith   High Blood Sugar & Chronic Disease     "As a teenager, I was on this blood sugar roller coaster that I had no ideas was profoundly affecting my mood but once I stabilized that and started studying health, I realized that it's not just fun to have unstable blood sugar because you're hangry, it legitimately increases your risk for pretty much every degenerative chronic disease there is, right? Insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's and more. But if we can use apple cider vinegar or something similar to bring blood sugar stability back to normal, you have this incredible wealth of bandwidth all of a sudden; you have more energy, vitality, and can sleep better. This comes into place with all of the other factors on the wellness wheel." - Autumn Smith     Links From Today's Show  Paleovalley's Apple Cider Vinegar Complex 352 Autumn Smith: How To Heal Your Brain With Food  135 Autumn Smith: The Truth About Food And Mental Health ‎Optimize Paleo Podcast by Paleovalley The #1 Nutrient to Boost Your Mental Health 293 Dr. Jade Teta 397 Kara Collier 384 Shawn Stevenson 364 Alison Armstrong Paul Chek | All Is God 336 Joe Sheehey Paleovalley Beef Sticks Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co Botanic Tonics breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Paleovalley Facebook Instagram Autumn Smith Facebook   About Autumn Smith Autumn Fladmo Smith has been a health enthusiast her entire life.

Cured Nutrition Belcampo Meat Co Paleovalley breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show Not All Thoughts Are True   "Just because you think something, it doesn't mean it's true. In fact, a lot of what you think is not true; it's just noise. It's just your brain exercising something and the moment I realized that, it was a real lightbulb moment because what I had been trying to do before was to control it. I was trying to get that voice in my brain to go away but it is never going away. It will be there but it doesn't mean that I have to engage with it. Not just with that voice in my head but with many things in my life." - Jerry Ross   How 'Feel Free' Came To Be   "Alcohol was out of my life but I still didn't feel completely comfortable in my skin and I was looking for something to help me with that but not have the negative effects that alcohol had the more and more I consumed of it. I was looking for something that wasn't inebriating or limiting. I wanted something that made me feel comfortable socially but would also enhance my ability to focus. When I lived in Southeast Asia for a period of time I was introduced to kratom and then I remembered my experience trying kava in Vanuatu. That led to the idea of mixing the plants in their native form, not processed." - Jerry Ross   Creating Value For Others     "I knew how to make money but that wasn't bringing me happiness so I had to dig deep and find out what I was meant to do with my life. I realized during that period of deep reflection and inner work that my purpose wasn't just about me, it was about doing something of value to society. It's about building value but not just value for me and that is what really propelled me forward in life and later down the road Botanic Tonics and Feel Free." - Jerry Ross     Links From Today's Show  The Great Unlearn Podcast with Cal Callahan 400 Cal Callahan Enter our Episode 400 Giveaway!

The Way of the Superior Man by David Deida The moment Cal knew that his job working on the trading floor was no longer a place for him to follow his purpose.

How he was focused more on playing instead of getting everything right when using tools during his wellness journey like breathwork and meditation.

JP Sears The programmed cycle he was on for awhile that said, "You're a trader. You need to make it," which took him away from being with his family. Why so many people don't actually find their purpose until they have unlearned all of their programming. How to start finely tuning into the things that bring you joy and make you feel alive to find your purpose and inner happiness. What Cal did to start paying attention to what truly called him - being a health coach - instead of being a trader. Signs to look for in your life: what do you read on your spare time? What do you check out on the internet? What do you do in your free time? Who do you like to spend time with? Breaking down what blocks people from their purpose: money, the opinion of others, media, parental example, and more.

Why money is such a harsh core wound for society and how it has personally impacted Josh.

I've been able to endure a lot and what I needed to unlearn within that was that I don't need to do it all by myself. That's a lesson that has been really difficult for me to learn but as I have let go, called on my brothers and sisters for help, I've started to feel much more connected to others. Resiliency isn't good or bad, we just have to think about how we're using it. Sometimes it doesn't feel good to be resilient all the time like when my wife is trying to connect with and see the real me." - Cal Callahan   Starting The Inner Work Journey   "To reign in the power of vulnerability, you have to do the inner work and be willinging to question all the ways you have done things but be kind to your past self because if you can't accept all that you have done including all the 'shitty things,' you will never move through it. Part of the journey is the ability to hold yourself when you really need it as you're going through that process but it's also about getting quiet too. It's about lessening the distractions; stop adding things to your plate and begin focusing on what is going on below the surface." - Cal Callahan   Working With Our Triggers     "You can't really surrender until you understand that you are perfect just as you are. When you understand that each of us is doing the best we can, you're perfect. You're doing the best you can and sometimes you will do better and be in a better space than other times but that's just where you're at. When we understand that, we don't continue to beat ourselves up. When you feel triggered, how can you work with that instead of feeling bad about it?

If you heard us on Part One, we honored our ancestors. If you haven't heard Part One, make sure you go back and listen to Part One. It'll give you perfect context for Part Two of this Solocast. This is where we talk about a concept of touching death. Touching death. When I was on the mountain, I had a direct message and the direct message was about our thoughts. You know, psychoneuroimmunology is how thoughts become things, but yet thoughts are like waves in the ocean. Thoughts come and go. They are unlimited and sometimes like unfathomable in size and texture and in message. So then what exactly is the thought? You know, when I did this four day water fast up on the mountain for the 10 day Native American Vision Quest, the bridge between reality, the bridge between the underworld, the creepy crawlies, the bugs, the animals, and here, the 3D reality becomes so very thin.   Josh Trent (01:15): So very thin. So I took in this message: What makes a thought true instead of a thought being static and noise? And how do I make truth about a signal instead of the noise? How do I disconnect from the quantum, the collective field of thoughts and how those thoughts becomes things? Well, I believe that the only thing that makes a thought true is my soul's attention poured into it. And on top of that, the emotions that I experience after I attach to that thought. Now this is huge: The only thing that makes any of our thoughts true is the attention that I pour into the thought. And then also the emotion that I experience after I attached to that thought. So that is for all of us, the understanding of what makes a thought true. And how do those thoughts completely control subconsciously how I show up in the world with my heart open or with my heart closed?   Josh Trent (02:15): So I can be thankful. And this is, this is the lesson that I want to share with you. I, we, all of us can be thankful, truly grateful for my feelings. Especially as men, we have been shamed into beliefs, like, "Suck it up, Pussy. Big boys don't cry." Which is honestly the abuse of the male psyche in this world. This connection to a belief that emotions should not be felt. Emotions need to be pushed down. Emotions are not to be shown, especially by men. It is actually the bane of our existence. It's the very thing that the feminine, if you identify as a heterosexual partner or however you identify, it is the very thing that the feminine wants from the masculine and that is to emote, to show emotions. So it's a beautiful gift, love and acceptance. Can I accept the thought? Can I love the thought?   Josh Trent (03:08): Can I ask the thought maybe if it's painful, maybe if it's pleasurable, whatever it is, can I turn to my thought and can I ask my thought, what are you here to teach me? What are you here to teach me? And that is the most potent medicine that any of us can ever receive in any ceremony. For me, it just happened to be in nature and nature always holds the keys. I'll never forget. I was laying on my back and I was chasing the sun around the mountain side in Northern Idaho. There was deep forest cover. The canopy is very thick and I was laying on my back on the second night and into the third morning. And I had this awareness. If I'm experiencing an emotion that I do not want to feel that my soul understands is not the path or not my life's choice, then that emotion, that feeling that energy in motion, which creates a feeling - that is actually the power of choice.   Josh Trent (04:06): That is the bridge between me being thankful and loving the thought or me trying to kick the thought's ass and get out of my head. You know, you can connect with this. How many times have you thought a thought and realized that your resistance to the thought, your hatred towards the thought, your lack of love, essentially towards the thought is the very thing that perpetuates that thought from hanging around and keeps that thought around. So this is the gift. If my soul, Josh Trent's soul decides which thoughts are real and which thoughts are not. And by real, I mean, whatever thoughts apply to my soul's purpose and my heart - well, that's the way that I can share my love with the world. And there was this song, this beautiful song, which brings out so much emotion in me, and it was, "Peace Like A River."   Josh Trent (04:55): And the song goes something like this that gave me so much soulless. We have forgotten how to sing in this lifetime. We have been disconnected from our singing voice and this song was my ultimate medicine. And the song goes, "I've got peace like a river. I've got peace like a river. I've got peace like a river in my soul." And I went on and I kept saying things like strength like a mountain, joy like fountain, love from Great Spirit over and over and over again. And out of nowhere, I picture the face of my father. I pictured the face of my father and I don't ever really think I've fully healed from the wounding. My Father Wound until I received this medicine from Mother Nature. Because in that moment with tears streaming down my face, I got to honor the deep sacrifices my father has made for myself and my brother. Growing up, all the money he made to take care of us and the energy that my father spent to provide for my brother.   Josh Trent (05:58): And I. So, to my father, I forgive you. And please forgive me for all the ways that I have not honored you and not being grateful for what you did. Really my projections, my anger for you came from the hurting the relationship I had been trying so hard with white knuckles to make you understand me, to make you love me in the way that I wanted you to love me the whole time. Just not loving and accepting you for who you are in the exact way you are. And this was the greatest gift that I want to share with you. Forgiving my father so that I can be empowered with the father inside myself. Daniel Trent, I forgive you. I forgive all the ways that you did the very best you could. And maybe sometimes they weren't enough and I send you love for your journey and let this be enough for all of us.   Josh Trent (06:50): with the Father Wound. All the ways that our fathers have wounded us, maybe abandoned us because they themselves felt wounded and abandoned. And this is the all retch and no vomit that Alan Watts talks about. We pass on this lineage, this wounding in our lineage as men by regurgitating the exact behaviors that hurt us. This is why hurt people, hurt people. So consider this to be a flag of peace. I put down my weapons. I forgive, forgive my own father. I forgive the father inside myself. We have peace you and I. No longer do I need my father to open his heart and listen, because we are both fathers now. And of course I want my father to be a part of my life and my son's life if he chooses. But the only path of true love is sharing the heart's wisdom without any expectation.   Josh Trent (07:49): So you are loved. And please forgive me for the way that I have acted towards you as a wounded child. And I love you. And this was profound because later that afternoon, as I watched all the bees and the trees and the bugs and how nature has this beautiful synergy, I just became so grateful for the peace in my heart. Because this broken lineage, this projection of wounding, this unawareness of self, it stops with me. It stops with the awareness that I have for what is true, the objective truth that we all do our best, including that time zone, where my father came from, where many of our fathers came from, where sharing your emotions was an act of weakness. And really what that does is it brings us closer to death. And on that night, on that third night in my dream, I felt the washing of my nervous system with peace.   Josh Trent (08:54): Now I can speak to the truth of this present moment to truly honor the truth of the past. I have to forgive. When I choose to forgive, and this is the lightness and the peace you hear in my voice. Thank you, Mother Nature. Thank you Mother Nature for your wisdom, this gift of awareness and the peace and power you have given me washing my blood and my nervous system with the truth. A ho Great Spirit. Now, so I have a wellness podcast and hatred, resentment, bitterness is the poison that makes me feel unwell. And currently in my life at this Vision Quest, I came to this radical cul de sac of awareness, where I am experiencing unwellness. I had to get sick from the system itself. I had to get sick from society itself so that I know what it truly feels like to be a human in our world.   Josh Trent (09:45): And I definitely became sick, pushing the throttle down all the way to the floor. Looking back if I could have trusted Great Spirit and been in dialogue with our Mother Earth. I wonder, I just wonder, could I have achieved a level of success without sacrificing my health? This is how I choose to move forward. I finally know now what the discovery of loving awareness truly is. It's not some social media meme or something Ram Dass or Rumi once said. Loving awareness truly is observing all that is. The joy, the hate, the fear, the ecstasy, shame, guilt, sadness, - all of it. All the colors in the palette of emotions and experiences that we as human beings witness. And I feel that I have unlocked one of these secret keys that I want to share with you and this is to truly capital T to truly observe, to observe in truth.   Josh Trent (10:35): Knowing that all emotions, feelings, thoughts, and beliefs, they are rising to the surface to be loved. And I know it sounds reductionist. But all there is is love. And the truth is God is love. Even the word evil, which is love, right? Evil is love because evil is live spelled backwards, which Paul Chek and Dr. Vernon Woolf have shared. So even the evil in my life that I have experienced within myself and others is love because evil backwards is to live. I experienced so much sadness that day in this washing and this letting go of forgiveness, because when you rip a tree out of the ground, whether it's emotional, physical, or spiritual, some of the roots are going to break. I had to go through all the porn scenes that I had watched, all the women that I had sex with that I didn't love and sit down young Josh at 13, the one that was screaming at me to stop and next to him, next to him was my son, Novah.   Josh Trent (11:37): And I turned to him and I said, when you're angry, let yourself be angry. When you hold onto your anger or your resentment, it's like heating up water on the stove. When you boil water on the stove, it will bubble, but the bubbles have to rise and pop and come out. Now you may not know young Josh and young Novah -when these bubbles are coming out, you may be with friends or family or even playing. So it's very important that you allow yourself to feel your anger and you know what, your anger is always safe with me. Your anger is always welcome here, because what happens with unchecked anger, that you will be angry with people. And you don't know why, because that anger is really subconsciously wanting to express itself. But if you don't allow yourself to feel it, and this is the key, this is the lesson.   Josh Trent (12:24): When we do not experience the permission to feel our anger, that anger comes out sideways towards others, that we care about, that we really don't want to hurt, but we do because of unchecked anger, because it's so uncomfortable to feel. And on this third night, I see life through a new lens with forgiveness, for self, with the letting go of resentment. With the understanding that we are all victims of intellectualization, which is another Solocast that I actually recorded up on the mountain. After the quest, feeling into this prayer for really disempowerment. For many years, I had been curious and even neurotic at times, if I had been like sexually abused as a child, and I asked Great Spirit, you know, with all this forgiveness and all the pain that I 'd gone through with an open heart, you know, has it ever happened? Have I ever been sexually abused?   Josh Trent (13:19): And in the stillness, this was the gift. I was able to see that my question actually came from me trying to hide from the responsibility of my life choices. In other words, shame and blame. As a reason for my pain and misfortune, I went through a full inventory of everything I'd done and Great Spirit said to me, "It is yours, no others." And I flashed to my early porn memories connecting the dots when pornography first entered my life via VHS and DVDs and internet starting at about 13 years old. And I turned to my young self and my son in the forest as the sun was setting. And I said, your sex energy is your fire. Never let anyone steal your fire only ever choose to give your fire to people that you love and that you want to share your life with because when it comes to sex energy, if you're using pornography, if you're using your sex energy to divide and conquer, then you are disassociated from self.   Josh Trent (14:22): That is where addiction truly comes from. And this is for all of us a lesson when it comes to sex energy. Here's how, you know, if you're using pornography too much, or if it's become a tool of disassociation and addiction, if the real thing, if, if a man having sex with a woman, if it scares you and you find comfort in the fake in the screen, well you know that you are now in a path of disassociation and potential addiction? So the wisdom of the heart is really what is all calling us forward. Life in the 3D world seems to be this consistent reminder for all of us to slow down in order to hear the wisdom of the heart. And sometimes the wisdom of the heart points to the masks that wear and the biggest mask that I wear, the biggest mask that I wear is having to have everything all together, having to have the perfect thing to say at the right time and have all my shit together.   Josh Trent (15:20): And it's just all. bullshit It's not reality. We never have to be perfect. We never have to have the perfect thing to say. And that is a massive gift for all of us to look at the masks that we wear and really being ourselves, unlocking, being ourselves in a current moment. Can we just let that be enough? That is the path to be yourself in every current moment and not feel that you have to be perfect; have it all together. There is forgiveness there. There is peace there. And when there is peace, power can be trusted. That is the ultimate lesson when it comes to peace, because we are all searching for peace inside self. Yet people try to find peace by first getting power, but you cannot have power as the precursor to peace. It works the other way around. So where do these thoughts come from?   Josh Trent (16:13): All these thoughts that I've been sharing with you and all these thoughts that we experienced? Well, if I had to make an intelligent observation, I believe that thoughts come from a culminated library of my own experiences, things that I've seen, things that I've thought before, and also the collective field, the quantum, where there might just be thoughts, emanating around vibrationally electronically, literally. And then I also think in some experiences when there's the piercing of the 3D world by the four and sometimes extraterrestrial five. I do believe different beings come in and implant thoughts into people. So how do we make sense of this? How do we make sense of why thoughts are there and how do we learn how to love the thought? I want to share this that was given to me by a mentor and a friend, Paul Chek. When I received an entity after a terrible Ayahuasca session, that took me almost 18 months to clear the beginning of my healing came with this prayer:   Josh Trent (17:04): So for any of us, if you ever have a thought that is intrusive, say this prayer. By the power of God invested in me. If you are not here to teach me something, to teach me how to get closer to love, then I ask you to leave right now. And I send you love for the journey. You are not allowed in my inner sanctum. And if you try to force yourself in my inner sanctum, you will be stuck in purgatory forever. I do not fear you. And I ask you to leave. And this is the key I send you love for the journey. Now be gone. Feel the peace in that, feel the peace in not fighting or being angry at your thought, turning to your thought. Or as Dr. Vernon Woolf says your holodome, and giving it the permission to let go. These thoughts that come just like high, low pressure...sodium, potassium...chaos and order. Chaos is always seeking   Josh Trent (17:55): order. Fear is always seeking love, thoughts that cause constriction, they are guideposts. They are guideposts to what is needed. And what is being called for attention in our psych. And two years ago, Paul said to me in his home that came so viscerally when I was on the mountain. And it really wells up a knot in my throat right now with my son on the way, he said, "Once I learned how to parent the child inside of me, the universe will put one in my arms." And I'm just so grateful. I'm so grateful because the ego is not the enemy. The ego is the amigo. With inside of the ego, There is deep wounding calling to be healed from both my life and maybe the lives and sins of my father and grandfather that came before me. And so as I touch death, I can have acceptance and really joy for the pain.   Josh Trent (18:51): Now, this sounds crazy, but just level with me for a moment. Pain, without a teacher yields a lack of patience, but pain with a teacher yields resilience. And that is the kind of resilience that can be trusted because it is earned wisdom. And I flashed, and I had this deep understanding of why the body carries extra weight, why my body has been carrying extra weight. And that is because of shame, guilt, anger, and trauma. And this is big. Anger - Only anger sure can be washed away by the healing of nature in Great Spirit, a reconnection to nature and the power of God, where there is no anger in this spaciousness, but unprocessed and dealt with anger is the biggest cause a fat storage in the body in the entire universe. And this became radically clear to me, what am I really talking about here?   Josh Trent (19:43): What am I angry about? I was angry about life in this world that we live in, why we die, having anger that we die, but here's the reality. We are all going to die. And there is so much peace in that. There is peace in the understanding that life is finite. We are infinite beings, but the life we chose to live here is finite. And so if you have a 24/7, 365 unprocessed trauma that lingers in the background of your subconscious mind, maybe you have a lifetime of guilt about a person you heard, or what could have been, or what should have been, or maybe you have trauma. That's very deep, maybe it's sexual or physical or emotional trauma, and you're working on it. This is also the time that the body can put on extra weight because trauma is coming up and it is fueled to be burned and away.   Josh Trent (20:36): And so these are all pain teachers. Anger, shame, guilt, and trauma, all of these things, which I unpack very in-depth on the victim of intellectualization Solocast. Pain without a teacher yields a lack of patience, but pain with a teacher yields resilience. And that is resilience. That can be trusted. So when the pain arrives, turn to the pain, ask the pain, what are you here to teach me? What are you here to teach me and then go right to it. Because in that situation, you can really understand and embody the resilience that life is calling you to bring. And that is the lesson that is the ultimate lesson of this Vision Quest, to understand the anger, shame, guilt, and trauma, they all feed the fire of not being loved. Fear of being broke, fear of being hurt, fear of being wrong. Fear of fill in the blank, but what does fear want?   Josh Trent (21:30): Fear wants love. Fear always wants love. Look at the laws of science and the laws of nature and gravity and high, low pressure, and understand that shame and guilt and trauma and anger they simply want love. And so, as we close, which there'll be many more Solocasts, maybe, maybe a few more honestly, because the wisdom is still going to come. As we close, let's feel the anger about what maybe the collective is feeling; the mask, wearing the COVID because below that anger it's sadness, the sadness of how could you, why did you, how could this be? Why God, why? Below the anger and sadness, sometimes sadness has to be woken up by anger. And so we do here, our work on planet earth and these physical bodies in these 3D realms. And we do our loving best to share our true experiences for one another and have the courage, to be honest with one another. Aho Great Spirit.   Josh Trent (22:30): Thank you for my reconnection to our Great Mother and for welcoming me back home. Great Spirit, please forge me in all of us like a tool so that we may do your bidding in this world and that we may have peace. I am weld with emotion after the quest. And if this resonates with you, you can DM me on Instagram. You can reach out to me in many ways. There's a contact form on the website. I am in service to love, present in self-evident truth and at home grounded in nature with space for myself, family, community, and the world to take part in my trustworthy guidance. Let this be enough, let this be enough today that we can all take solace in the words of Rumi, "Beyond right and wrong, there is a field and I will meet you there."   Josh Trent (23:25): If you enjoyed this Solocast, this is a recording. One week when I returned home from the quest with my group of seven and our four guides, Alia, Hayden, Mark, and Tim enjoy this as a reflection of truth that is current the first, second, third, and fourth week on my return home, please enjoy this recording with my group. A ho. Wow! Welcome back to the matrix. That's been my integration. How has it been going? How has my integration process been going? I would say overall from many of the different, I guess you could describe them as ego stripping experiences. This one by far had the most realness when I came home and it's a testament to when I crossed the threshold, as the, I guess, showed up in the monkey in Tim's dream. Uh, there was a part of my young boy inside of me that really needed this medicine.   Josh Trent (24:31): And as I've come home, I've been talking slower. I haven't been in a hurry to wow people. I've really seen like the layers of my psychological onion be fucking peeled when I came back home. And a big part of that was just really feeling safe and secure and loved and whole in my body. And I know that my physical health isn't perfect right now, but it feels damn good to come from a place where I'm being healthy, not from scarcity, not from like, oh my God, it's an emergency blah, blah, blah, but just really loving myself and being healthy from that place. And it, and it really rocked my world, you guys, cause I didn't think about this. I didn't feel this until I got home and I'm sure it'll unfold for a long time, but there was this point a couple of days, I was...We have a trail here and I was walking in nature and I had this little sit spot on a rock and it overlooks the stream and I was sitting there and I was like, it flashed me back to a fucking moment   Josh Trent (25:33): I had, when I was a personal trainer. When I went into personal training, I wanted to make my body look good so that I could like be with the feminine and look cool. And like all these things that I think a young undeveloped 25 year old man does, and I was sitting on a rock and I was like, "Oh my God, this is what I've been wanting the whole time to actually be well and be healthy and love myself from a place of calmness instead of using health and my outward appearance as a way to look cool and be accepted and receive love from other people." Like coming home to the fucking realness is really what it felt like. And it felt really good. And so I'm excited about that. And then wouldn't, you know, it, when I came home, you know, I had shared with y'all that, that I had quote, "hypothyroid," well, I'm doing a podcast and I'm meeting with this functional medicine doctor and he's like, "Josh, you don't have hypothyroid.   Josh Trent (26:27): "That was a misdiagnosis. That was actually somebody trying to sell you a bunch of bullshit." And I'm like, "Oh my God, this is exactly what Hayden said where he was like, 'Dude, in your share, you had to get sick. You had to go on this quest for wellness to feel unwellness in your body. And you had to go into the matrix into the system, into the belly of the beast,' so that I would feel what it's like to be sick from the system itself and be masqueraded and have, and have things presented to me as truth when they're really not true because the truth is that health comes from self love. Wellness comes from me, loving myself. Like period. End of story. And there's no esoteric babble that needs to go along with that. It's just, it is what it is.   Josh Trent (27:13): Like wellness comes from loving myself and from being a loving human being to other people and to the degree that I'm, uh, angry or judging or projecting my bullshit onto other people, well that creates an unwellness and dis-ease in myself and I've heard this shit a thousand times, but something clicked from this quest where I was able to sit with myself and really feel what the hell that even means and what the reality of that even means, because it's so easy for me to get caught up. I have all these books and I have all these interviews and I was feeling this on the quest. I became a victim of intellectualization, a victim of my own intellectual mind, where I had heard Hawkins in 'Power vs Force' and in 'Letting Go' talk about the space between the head and the heart. But something really clicked when I came home and I was like, oh my God, like this, this is everything. And so my work, my path and my integration of this, this quest is to bring the quest home, to be in nature, to pray to our Mother and to connect with her and to honor her, I've been picking up trash when I go on walks with my lady and she was so stoked yesterday, she was like, "I love you coming back from this quest,' she's like, "I love the Mountain Man."   Josh Trent (28:28): I love the mountain man. And so she, she was like, I'm really proud of you. And it's, it's been beautiful in our relationship. You know, it's been really, it's been really beautiful because she's noticing the difference in me where before, when I went out there, like, you know, I'm not going to lie. Like when I came back, there was the culture shock. I mean, holy shit, there was a massive culture shock because I came from like deep nature and just laying with bugs and being in the dirt and like feeling the joy of sunrise. And then I am wearing a mask in the airport and I had this moment, you guys like it really like, it's quite emotional. This woman was playing with her child and she had a mask on and I just, I, in the airports, I take my mask off, you know, it's not a 'Fuck you,' it's not an anger thing.   Josh Trent (29:17): It's just like, come tell me to wear it and I'll put it on. So that's how I roll. And I had my mask off and I had my mask off the entire time and I'm sitting there and I'm talking to this woman about her baby. And I told her my son's coming. And she was like, "Oh, it's so beautiful." She's like, "I wish I could take my mask off and play with my child." And I just calmly took a breath. And I looked right at her and I said, "You can take it off right now. You don't have to wear this." And it was almost like she double clutched emotionally. She was like, is he right? Can I take it off or? And I realized, oh my God, like this, this is what the world needs. And this is what I shared to everyone.   Josh Trent (29:54): And this is what the gift of, of reality that spirit gave me. And that is when it comes to creating change in the world and in, in creating loving change, less anger, more truth. And it's exactly what I shared in our circle. Less anger, more truth. That was the message that spirit gave me when it comes to mask wearing and psychological control and COVID and manipulation, less anger, more truth in the same thing, mirrored in a conversation with my brother yesterday, where he was going off and off and off about all the crazy stuff that's happening in the world. And I was like, well, what if we held them both at the same time? What if we held the dark and the light at the same time? And we said, okay, we're not going to bypass this. We're going to feel into it, but we're also going to present solutions based on love.   Josh Trent (30:38): And instead of focusing on, "DON'T WEAR A MASK!" It's like, "Hey, here's how you can trust your immune system. Here's how you can build your immune system. Here's how you can be healthy in your own body, in your own psyche." That's the direction I want to go in. And I realized I became to go full circle. My integration, my culture shock is just the reality that I had become a victim of my own intellectualization, where I would intellectualize everything to death. I just intellectualize everything to death. So, um, I've been feeling it all. I've been feeling. I've been feeling the deep sadness, feeling the pain. And when I looked into that mother's eyes in the airport, just how controlled she is. And she's just a mirror of the millions of people in our country that are being controlled. And it makes me, honestly, you guys, it makes me want to go out with a spear like our ancestors did and just start stabbing people.   Josh Trent (31:27): It makes me want to go to war and that's not gonna, that's not gonna do anything. It's not going to do anything. You know, if it comes down to that in the future, I'm sure we'll all be on the front lines together, but, but it's not, I think we're in a different kind of war. I think we're in a war of consciousness where, you know, my grandfather went to World War II and he actually had to kill people. You know,...Can you guys imagine what that would feel like? I mean, I just, can you imagine what it would feel like to have to kill people to be free? How crazy that would be? So just feeling into that and we don't have to do that. Like we can choose something we can, we can fight or what we believe in from love, not from violence and not from anger.   Josh Trent (32:15): and just feeling into all that you guys, you know, just feeling into the, the real nobility and the real power in being at peace is one of the things I wrote to Tim and Mark before we started as like, "Hey," he was like, "I, you know, I'm going out here for my birthday. Like may peace and power would be the result." That was my quick mantra, my prayer, I just want, I want peace and I want power because cause that can be trusted. And so, um, that's the meaning of the making, um, mystery has been talking to me in dreams profoundly. So, and I guess there's, there's a part of my heart. That's honestly missing, sounds crazy missing the darkness and missing being out there. And just knowing that every year I will be doing this from now on, because talk about the ultimate spiritual check-in, we'll talk about the ultimate check-in for who you are.   Josh Trent (33:07): I think as far as support, I could use support in sharing the podcast, you know. If these messages align and when one of the things is having shorter episodes, like five, 10, 15 minute episodes that are easier for people to listen to that don't take an hour of people's time and still delivering potent medicine in that short time. So I can request support on that. My experience of the Vision Quest woven has woven its way into my day-to-day life. Um, it's been really strong in my connection to nature and just loving where I live. It could definitely be stronger in the fact where I had this vision of like taking my son out, you know, those baby carriers, I think they're called like baby bjorn or something. So taking my son out and I had this vision of having a guide, teach us how to live from the land, like, you know, which plants are safe and which plants are not. And here's how you do the fire like Jesse did, and just really want wanting that here. So trying to find someone here in Austin, where we can learn about how to live off the land, you know, how to survive basically.   Josh Trent (34:18): So that's it, I'm feeling all the things you guys I'm feeling all the emotions that are in the dark bucket and I'm feeling all the emotions that are in the delight bucket too. And just kind of like, whoa, it's been, it's been intense. Um, I've been living to my commitments and I haven't, I haven't felt the call to have the conversation of healing with my father yet because the father in me is like, it's not time. It's not time. So what's beautiful is that I did the healing with him up there on the hill. And so I don't, I don't need to run to go here with my father cause I've already healed that. Like there's a part of me. That's already touched the compassion and the forgiveness that I have in him. So if that's meant to be in the future, it will be. A ho.         Build Immunity.

This is a very special solocast. This solocast is about honoring our ancestors, where I've come from, where you've come from, the Spirit, the Great Spirit that guides all things. And the mother, the Mother Earth, who has supported us from Day One. You know, this solocast was probably the most requested solocast I've ever received. I probably had more people that direct messaged me and texted me and said, “We want to know, Josh. We want to know what was it like after you did a 10 day traditional Native American Vision Quest.” And I am here to say that I have touched death with two hands. I have touched death with two hands and I'm back. I am back from the great beyond and my 41st birthday. I have lessons and light that I'm ripe with this heart that is beating in my chest ever since I took my first, my first breath out of my mother, Mary, my heart has cracked wide open and the river of emotions I feel after 10 days in deep nature in north Idaho, 20 minutes, north of Priest River, Idaho, the emotions I feel for humanity and for our Great Mother are unsurpassed in all of the potent medicine that I have ever received. Josh Trent (01:29): The overwhelming message was that you and I, we can choose to live at the pace of nature, or we can choose to die trying to fight her and just let that land because one of the things that Tim Corcoran and Mark Tollefson, my two guides, at Purpose Mountain that guided us - all seven of us. I went with seven people to this Native American Vision Quest, which I'm going to unpack. I'm going to inspire you with my story with this incredible story where I got to touch death with two hands. One of the things that Tim and Mark talk about in the Quest is that you are held by the Great Mother and just feel into that when you're held by the Great Mother you're never lost. And one of the things that we can all do, if you're ever lost, if you're ever feeling like life has kicked you and a relationship has ended, your job has plummeted.   Josh Trent (02:29): A friendship has gone up in flames. If you are ever lost, if we are ever lost, take your deep breath and stop. That isn't in wildlife. And in search and rescue, there was a phrase that many trackers go by, and that is, If you are lost in the forest stop, because someone is trying to find you. And how is that a beautiful metaphor for how we live our life and how we have our relationships when we are lost, stop, just stop. And that is the one great gift that we all can receive from a 10 - day Native American Vision Quest. But when you stop, you have to be prepared. You have to be prepared to feel all the feelings that were below the surface that are poking through that you didn't want to feel that were uncomfortable. And that's okay because in the stillness, there is wisdom.     Josh Trent (03:32): There is wisdom in the sadness. There is wisdom in the fear. There is wisdom in the anger and below the fear there is really just love. After coming back from these 10 days, which I'm going to share. I promise I'm going to share. I truly no longer fear death at 41 years old on my 41st birthday. And now just two weeks since I've been back, I do not fear death anymore, but there is a deep sadness because below the fear below the veil of that fear is really just a garden of sadness, rich with the seeds of truth, the truth of sadness that one day I, you, we will no longer be able to practice our gratitude to be in gratitude for the gift of growing and fulfilling my purpose right here with Wellness Force to love and be of service and have kindness for my family, community, Great Spirit and Mother Earth, you know, being angry that we die.     Josh Trent (04:28): This is another gift from the Quest: being angry that we die comes from the egoic grasp of self-righteousness. Feel into that. When you are angry at the mystery, when you are angry at Great Spirit, when you are angry at nature, how egoic, how much hubris are you sitting on a golden seat on, on a cloud of hubris. Being grateful before we die is actually the gift because we're not making it out of here alive, my friend, We're all going to the great beyond and being grateful before we die, this is what yields a life worth living, where we can truly live while we honor the great mystery. We are all from the earth, not on the earth and we are all home. To begin the story, there is a beautiful saying in prayer that comes from the language and the tradition of the Lakota people.     Josh Trent (05:22): And it is, “All are related, are all my relations.” And it's a wonderful reminder of our interconnectedness here on earth and of the Spirit within all beings. I'm inspired by Nancy Windheart - to her phrase of all my relations. I honor you in this circle of life with me today. I am grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge you in this prayer, to the Creator for the ultimate gift of life. I thank you to the mineral nation that is built and maintained my bones and all foundations of life experience. I thank you to the Plant Nation that sustains my organs and body and gives me healing herbs for sickness. I thank you to the Animal Nation that feeds me from your own flesh and offers your loyal companionship in this walk of life. I thank you and to the Human Nation that shares my path as a soul upon the sacred wheel of earthly life,     Josh Trent (06:20): I thank you. To the Spirit Nation that guides me invisibly through the ups and downs of life and carrying the torch of light throughout the ages, I thank you. To the four winds of change and growth, I thank you. You are my relations, my relatives. Without them, who I would not live. We are in this circle of life together, coexisting, codependent, co-creating our destiny. One, not more important than the other one nation evolving from the other, and yet each dependent upon the one and above and the one below. All of us are a part of this great mystery. And I thank you, God, I thank you Great Mystery for this life. And you can feel the tears in my voice because when I flew out on my 41st birthday, I started my Vision Quest at the Austin airport. And it was my birthday and I had my mask off and a woman ran up to me with a fairly large, protruding, obese stomach with two masks on her face and a large 64 ounce soda in her hand, screaming at me saying,     Josh Trent (07:28): “Sir, sir, sir…You need to wear your mask.” And I just simply turned to her, on my birthday, and I said, “You're okay. It's okay.” And I could see the fear in her eyes, and I can see the fear in so many of our eyes, not just when we're out in public and we see a reflection of self and of love and others. But when we look in the mirror, because I know that any person that I come in contact with and right there on Day Number One, I was given a beautiful gift to beautiful truths. And that is, No one is coming to save you. And that's the great news because you can choose to save yourself. And number two, no one is inherently out to get you; the majority of the fabrication of the egoic mind, the mind that doesn't want you to feel it doesn't want you to try hard and not get there.     Josh Trent (08:21): It doesn't want you to open up to a lover or yourself or your community and be vulnerable people because you've been hurt before. Well, these two truths are self-evident and of course in special situations, use your intuition. Sometimes someone is out to get you, but overall, overall, no, when you are in rational and irrational fear, when your mind is making up stories, that's a rational fear. And that was the first gift, you know, before any ceremony, it has been said that the moment ceremony starts is when you accept the invitation. And that is what happened for me. The very moment I arrived at the Austin airport on Day One, actually it was Day Zero. I didn't even gone to Idaho yet. I was already given a gift, a gift of these two truths that no one is coming to save me and no one is inherently out to get me. And so I had to put on the mask to fly on the airplane so that I could go receive my medicine. And I felt a well of anger in me, which I'll touch on later. That well of anger is really just sadness. And if we really feel into this, our society is sick. Krishnamurti says, “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”     Josh Trent (09:37): And how is this not the most radical objective truth you could ever hear? So, there I am on the plane feeling into this sickness, the sickness, not just of society, but if I'm being honest, which from this moment forward, I am, and I've always done my best. But from this moment forward, my heart is cracked wide open because I had to take an inventory, not just in the Quest, not just out there in nature with no flashlight, no tent, no knife, no fire, just myself, my breath, my thoughts, a tarp for the rain and the sleeping bag and pad. But I had to take an inventory on that plane. And the inventory said, when did I let go of the wonder? When did I let go of the wonder of life? When did I stop singing? When did I stop dancing? When did I stop telling stories?     Josh Trent (10:28): And when did I stop honoring the mystery of life again, Mark and Tim, the Vision Guides said, “Whenever someone's lost in the forest, they must stop. They simply must stop because that is how you will be found.” We all need to stop and slow down and pay attention, put down the phone and head out to nature. This is not a passive drug induced hippy prayer. This is the wish of God, of Great Spirit and our Mother Earth who are watching us destroy the sacredness of community, the sacredness of family, the sacredness of earth with our ego and humorous. We think we know so much better than the energy that created us. Look at how self-righteous we have become. And this is the story. This is the beginning of this story. I arrive at camp with all of these thoughts, going through my mind, the radical realizations, not just on the plane and in the airport, but in the car ride, going out to Priest River, which is a two-hour drive from Spokane, Washington.     Josh Trent (11:27): And on the ride out there, I'm with my friend, Julie, who picked me up and took me to the camp. And I started to already feel the ceremony come through. First night, we get introduced to Tim and Mark and Ollie and Hayden, our guides, our co-guides. First night, radical, radical dreams. And this is what you will find when you are called to a 10-day Native American Vision Quest. The structure of the Native American Quest is that for three days, you do a deep soul in inventory. Really. It's a deep soul inventory. You uncover all the ways of being that have been not loving. And this is confronting; you take an inventory of how you've showed up for those you love when you've abandoned yourself. When you felt something in your egoic self, and use that to override your animal, self, your heart self, your true self, your loving self.     Josh Trent (12:24): And what came through for me was just this unchecked responsibility and poor management of my stress because I have been white knuckling. And I know you may feel me. If you are like this, are you the kind of person that white knuckles, because you will get what you want at all costs. Well, that's been me too, and I will never forget this moment around the fire in those first three days, really looking at the flames on my hand and my body and knowing that I am an infinite being who chose to be here and a finite existence. And that first night rocked my world because I knew that I was going to get deep healing on that mountain. And my inner young man was calling me. And so, in this Native American Quest, the first three days are ego unraveling and exercises and journaling, and really being with all the parts of yourself, you know, (Carl) Jung talks about the shadow and in all of us is a shadow, a shadow filled with demons, but guess what?     Josh Trent (13:27): Those demons just want love. And this is the ultimate gift of the Vision Quest, because when you go after those first three days and you walk out into nature, I will never forget going up to the campsite at first light woken up by wolves, howling at it. Must've been 4:45 in the morning. I mean, you could barely see the crack of light over the horizon. And I'm in my little tent. And I just hear these wolves screaming cause they had gotten a fresh kill on the very first day of our four day process, where we went out into nature. After we had selected our site after we had been stripped down after we had done our sweat lodges, where you sweat to the point where you didn't even know your body could sweat that much, the singing, the prayer, the asking for forgiveness. And this is really what we are all wanting.     Josh Trent (14:20): We want to forgive ourselves. We want God and Great Spirit and our mother, our Great Mother to forgive us. And this is the peace that we're all seeking. And that is the peace that I was awoken by, by animals in nature that get their kill because after the kill there is peace. And after there are certain parts of the older self that are killed, there is peace. And I felt that peace, but I also felt that terror way deep in my heart, there is nothing like waking up to wolves on a fresh kill in nature. As the sun barely cracks the horizon to put the fear of God in your soul. And as I walked up to the group and the fire and I crossed the threshold, walking deep into nature, about 30 minutes away from camp and camp had no cell service. I drew a box with sticks as I arrived to my site at the bottom of the hill and I placed my first stick vertically in that box.     Josh Trent (15:18): And I knew, I knew that that was the beginning of something where I would never be the same. And in that first night I had radical, radical sex nightmares. It actually, it actually started in the morning because you go out at first light on Day One. So the first three days was ego stripping and really ego inventory, soul inventory. Then there's four days. And when you go out for those four days on a traditional Quest, you have cold weather clothes, a sleeping mat, a tarp, and a sleeping bag and four gallons of water. That's it. So we're talking about no fire, no tent, no knife, no flashlight. You have to learn to befriend the dark. And that very first night I made it -  really wells me up with emotion, just feeling it. Now I went out in the morning at first light and I was exhausted.     Josh Trent (16:15): I hadn't slept the night before. I was nervous about being out in nature - cold with no food for four days and only water, no one to talk to; just myself. And I sat there after I had woken up from really the most tremendous nightmare, I think I had ever had. And it came from when I was foolish, when I was doing my best, but when I was foolish, when I chose to engage with a prostitute in Thailand where I was able to see where I was still not free, where I was still not free because I was battling with my own shame around sex and addiction and mistruths, and I needed some deep healing with my inner young man. And so in this dream, I was watching myself, abandon myself many years prior to the quest, looking at how to the public I wanted to, to be perceived as having an altogether, but deep within my own heart battling with the most visceral addiction, when it came to not feeling safe in my own skin, you could ever imagine.   Josh Trent (17:22): And on that first night, I let go of the war, which is what we all deserve - to let go of the war with ourselves. We can only heal ourselves when we choose that we're worthy of doing so. And when you are just like, I was put into nature to be held by the arms of a grandmother that you couldn't even imagine how strong she is - how loving, how peaceful she is. That is who we are from. That is who holds us. I woke up and I was terrified because I thought, "Oh my God, is this real?" I mean, when you're out there, the veil between dream and the veil between life here in the 3D is super thin. I mean, there were times throughout those four days where I didn't even know if I was alive or if I was dead or if it was a dream.   Josh Trent (18:13): I mean, it's, it is absolutely surreal. It blows away any mushroom, Ayahuasca, even multiple breathwork sessions I've had - puts them all in a pale light in comparison to the brutal potent medicine of Mother Nature at her finest. And that is at just peace because there is peace in my heart now as I've come home. But that peace only came on the other side of me waking up crying because of the pain of abandoning myself years prior and learning how to love this young man. Learning how to love my shame. I flashed back when I was sitting there as the sun rose and I was crying and I was just so grateful. I was so grateful for my life. I was so grateful that the nightmare wasn't true, even though the nightmare had occurred many years prior, when I chose to abandon the screaming voice of my inner young man. And that is the forgiveness that I deserved. So I sat down with young Josh and I sat down with my son. I sat down with my son next to me and I spoke to him about the power of forgiveness, the power of love and forgiveness.   Josh Trent (19:34): I will never forget five years ago when I had Gay Hendricks on the podcast and we're going to be having him on the podcast again. So stay tuned for that. And he told me, "Josh, you have to learn how to love your pain. If you want peace, you have to learn how to love your pain." I had no idea what Gay Hendricks was talking about. And now I do, because I know from my own experience where I had a three, four, even five dimensional conversation with my seven-year-old self, specifically my 13-year-old self, when I found pornography for the first time, I think my dad had a Playboy on the table. And then from there I got VHS and then DVDs and then the adult film store. And then, you know, all holes, barred when the laptop got pulled out and high-speed internet came into the picture.   Josh Trent (20:22): That was exactly the safety that I was seeking outside myself, that I love my parents. They did the best they could, but they did not teach me how to be loving and how to be comfortable in my own skin. And so the forgiveness I have for myself is also the loving and powerful forgiveness I have for them. And so I know now that we can only heal generational pain when we choose that we are worthy of doing so, we can only heal generational pain through forgiveness. Through forgiveness. Forgiveness is the antidote to fear. Forgiveness is the antidote to hatred and forgiveness is not something you can read in a book or read in a card. Forgiveness is something that you have to learn through experience. It's how to embody, how to cry through, how to bleed through, how to suffer through and all we can ever do is open the door to our family to enter.   Josh Trent (21:17): So, I asked that first night, and this is just the first night. I have way more to tell you. The very first night I asked at the altar of freedom without expectation for all my relations to enter my grandfather, Mauro, my grandmother, Marie, my grandfather, Gene, my grandmother, Louise, my brother, James, my mother, Mary, all my relations. My father, Daniel; everyone is welcome. Please forgive me, please forgive me. And I wept, I wept like a little boy and it was the most healing experience that I've ever had because finally, all the things that I had been searching for with Ayahuasca and with mushrooms and with "ceremony." All the time, it had been under my two feet and that was, I needed the potent medicine of nature of Mother Nature to ground me into her and total silence without distraction in nature for a hundred hours without food and only water so that I could actually understand what she has been telling me all along.   Josh Trent (22:23): And that is, "I'm home." I am home. We are all home here. We are not on the earth. We are from the earth and I wept. And on night, Number Two, I gave my seed back to Mother Earth. A lot of sexual shame, a lot of resentment of my decisions. I turned to those and I learned how to love them. I learned how to truly love them for what they are. They are my protector, because if I did not have pornography, if I did not have a way for me to feel comfortable in my own skin, well, then I wanted to leave my skin which is death. And so we have to touch death in order to feel the truth of life. And this is the purity that I gave to myself. I'm laying maybe 20 feet above my site. And I'm up on a mountain in Northern Idaho and it's freezing.   Josh Trent (23:21): And then when the sun comes up, it's emotional because the darkness has been lifted. And I spent most of my day, you know just being with my thoughts and laying in the sun and kind of chasing the sun around as it would shoot through the trees and little patches on the ground. And there was one moment where I just asked with a humble heart and I said, "Great Spirit. What will you have me do with Wellness Force? What will you have me do with Wellness Force?" Because we have hit this place with Wellness Force where we're growing, but we're not growing to the pace that can sustain the engine for the long-term.   Josh Trent (23:59) And I said, "Great Spirit, what would you like me to do? What would you like me to do with Wellness Force? Do you want me to burn this entire thing to the ground? Cause I will if that's what you want me to do." And I, with tears in my eyes, I looked up to the sky and I will never forget this moment. And I heard this voice, this little voice, and the voice said, "Just keep going, Just keep going." And I knew exactly what that meant. Just keep going and trust and love yourself as you go.   Josh Trent (24:34): And from an incredible connection of forgiveness and healing from the nightmare that I had had that gave me the gratitude for being with Carrie and having my son here in the world and just getting to be here. I walked over to the campsite. I pulled down my pants and for the first time, since I was 13 years old, I looked down at my cock and I connected the energy of my cock to my heart. And I connected my heart to my head. And I said, I am pure. I give my seed back to Mother Earth. I just kept saying this over and over again. This is pure. This is pure. I come into the earth for my wife and son and family and made this serve as a reminder for me that God's love, God's love - The love of Great Spirit is what ties the sex energy from my cock to my heart to my head.   Josh Trent (25:26): And as I came into the earth, I cried in the most profound sexual healing I have ever had in my life because I knew that I had come back home. I knew how powerful it was to be here right now. I felt the pride in my heart for choosing to reconnect with the love of the child. And I had this visualization of my lower self as I watched my lower self die. And I sent him love for the journey. It's this little boy holding a black crocodile. I can see him right now. I promise I'm not crazy. I mean, if you understand shadow and archetypes and going deep into the soldiering process, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about, but in nature, it is so much more magnified. And I looked at young Josh and I told him from the heart of a father, it's okay, you can rest.   Josh Trent (26:13): And I thought of Mark Groves when we did our episode out there and he said, "The child can rest. The adult is here." The child can rest. The adult is here. And my little Josh with his black crocodile, he walked off into the distance and he looked back and I sent him love for the journey. And I asked for forgiveness and I cried again. I mean, I never, I never cried so much in my entire life as to the degree that I cried during this Vision Quest. And this is Part One, stay tuned for Part Two. As I unpack Day Two, Day Three, and Day Four, and bring home even more wisdom for the road ahead. And if this inspires you, if you feel this in your heart, some of what I've gone through and what I've shared about truly embodying forgiveness has been medicine for you.   Josh Trent (27:09): Let me know. Wherever you're watching this, post in the comments. Share it with somebody. Part two is coming very soon. And before I do the Part Two, I want to ask you if you'll just take a breath with me and just connect to the part of your heart that was touched by this Part One of the Vision Quest, because really what this is, is about touching death, touching the fact that we are not here forever. And so if there's anything meant to die today, well, then turn to it and do the work so it can die. It is not just the shame that keeps us hostage. It is our gathering of evidence that we should be guilty that continues to burn the fire of the shame. Shame is much different than guilt because with shame comes evidence that you're not enough, something that we put on ourselves.   Josh Trent (28:06):   The shame stories of like, "I'm not good enough because my parents told me I wasn't," or "I'm stupid. Cause the teacher told me that," or you know, "I'm fat. Cause my boyfriend and my girlfriend told me that." We are so driven by shame. But guess what? Shame is so much different than guilt. Guilt is a feeling you get when you did something you felt was wrong. Guilt is when you abandon yourself, when you abandon someone you love or you perceive you did something wrong and in Part Two of this quest and this story about really honoring our ancestors, this Rite of Passage that so many men, so many women, never got the gift of receiving. This is what we will do go into in Part Two. So until I see you in Part Two, I'm wishing you love and wellness.     Build Immunity. Breathe Deeply.

Listen To Episode 399 As Iana Lahi Uncovers:   [1:30] Discovering Your True Self Iana Lahi Spirit Gateways One In Soul by Iana Lahi BE: The Humanity Blueprint Her journey and how she has grown since the age of 14 when she began to seek truth in life. Exploring the Humanity Blueprint she has created and how it helps people move through their existing body and mind patterns to reach liberation. Why some of our decisions aren’t always 100% ours and we must be ready to receive our own true self. What the False Self is and how we get trapped in an energy struggle between it and our True Self. Why we feel so much self-doubt, poor self-worth, and feel like we don’t matter when we’re not connected with the True Self. What the BE Work is at Spirit Gateways and how it will help you reconnect to the truth and power that’s already inside of yourself.   [6:30] The Spiritual Courage To Live Freely How being connected to your True Self will help you make clear decisions instead of being pulled by the False Self. Bruce Lipton Her teachings on the brain intelligence when it comes to the unintegrated and unprocessed emotional trauma we all experience. Why the subconscious mind is actually in both the brain and the body. How the body mind is literally one and thus full intelligence is a 360 degree perspective. Why we also disconnect from our brain intelligence when we disconnect from our True Selves. How we can tap into the existing power centers and life force energies in our body. Exploring how to heal trauma and looping thoughts that we all experience. The power point core center we all have located in the navel and how we received information both from our mothers and fathers while in the womb. Words and energy parents can use to welcome and bring their child into this world.   [14:30] Truth & Trauma: What Is Blocking You? Why it’s impossible to feel our own truth when we’re being traumatized. The challenge we face with our own existence when we face trauma. Exploring the power of the solar plexus or as she calls it, our “true brain.” The practice of becoming whole by opening your heart and looking for the light within. Josh’s experience working with Iana and how she has helped him heal. Uncovering what is blocking you from healing and being with your True Self. Why a man’s relationship with his father is crucial to work with and find who you are instead of your father being in the body. How men will embody their father’s and mother’s psyche in their body. Why the first step for a man or a woman to heal their trauma is to go deep within to find their inner child and see them with love. How you will meet the parts of your spiritual power that you had to leave behind to survive during the BE work.   [24:00] Shift Your DNA: Create Your Destiny Why we shouldn’t be asking, “How do we get more peace on earth?” but “How do I free myself from the parts of me that I haven’t processed yet so that I can have peace within me.” Unpacking why pain is such a vital source to help people ask the right questions. Her experience being trained in over 20 different modalities yet felt like she herself didn’t feel healed yet. How her work combines science and spirit meeting in the body in a really practical way. Why we have to face our pain in order to heal our separation from the True Self. The fact that women avoid their pain just as much as men. How a woman can make real conscious use of their moon time to go through their emotions and find their peace. Why you shouldn't just ask yourself, “Who am I?” but “Who am I not?” Exploring our cellular encoded emotions that have been passed down to us from our parents’ DNA. How we can look at our ancestry and choose what we want to bring forward by first focusing on bringing love into each moment.   [34:30] The Two Kinds Of Dark That Exist Exploring the capital ‘T’ and lower case ‘t’ trauma that we all experience, epigenetic expression, and spiritual science. What happens at a cellular level for the nervous system when the body experiences trauma. BE Trainings Light Mastery Academy How people can become addicted to their pain that they feel like only someone else can truly heal it. Breaking down the science side of spiritual exploration and how we can naturally heal ourselves. How the cells do change and rejuvenate when they release the toxins. The process that Spirit Gateways will take you on to help you open your third eye and be in alignment with your soul. Exploring both the masculine and the feminine components of ourselves that make up our souls. The two kinds of dark that exist: the dark that happens when we turn away from the light and the feminine dark that is pure creation. The responsibility that women have to enlighten their feminine self by bringing up their own anger, grief, and fear. How men must make use of the feminine energy which is the light and core of the earth.   [50:00] The Abandon Betray and Reject (ABR) Formula The ABR Formula that Iana has created and how it’s taught to us at a young age. Iana’s own healing journey and how she discovered that she had abandoned, betrayed, and rejected herself because of the way she was treated as a young child. How her family structure was built in such a place that her ABR became more intense for her and she had decided to abandon her voice and her light to try and get love. The fact that our culture and society is created to make us abandon, betray, and reject ourselves. How to know if you are stuck in the cycle of ABR: you find yourself relating too much to the external and are afraid of what people are thinking about you or you are always seeking acceptance. The benefits of finding just 5 minutes out of your day to be silent and allow ourselves to stop stimulation and distraction from social media. Taking the time to recognize how you avoid yourself and examples of how she’s done it to herself.   [1:00:30] Exploring Societal ABR with Sex & Intimacy Examples of societal ABR formulas such as with Cardi B’s ‘WAP’ compared to true sexual connection and intimacy. How companies are taking advantage of people with this ABR Formula. Why the core of distorted sexuality is self-hatred and self-remorse. What steps we can take to come back to God, our sexual essence, and heart by honoring our feminine energy. Exploring just how severe the damage of pornography really is for people. Words of advice she would give to someone who is dealing with the dark energy of pornography.   [1:09:00] The Process Of Discovery, Awakening, and Integration Breaking down Iana’s process of discovery, awakening, and integration. Exploring the BE system that will help you become and be who you really are at your core. How you can trust that there is more to your life than these safe compartments that you put yourself into. That fact that humans have been separating themselves for hundreds of years with the hope that religion gives them and Spirt Gateway gives you a new way to heal. How to allow yourself to take that first step in your healing journey. Feedback from Iana’s clients who have done the work with her. Drink LMNT - Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Cured Nutrition Botanic Tonics Belcampo Meat Co PaleoValley breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show   Healing Your Trauma With Spirit Gateways   "The Big 'T' trauma makes us feel like we don't exist. When we get caught in the dark of our own psyche, we have to spend the time shining the light of our highest octave, which is about 10-20 feet above our heads, down into the body where that trapped biological DNA and spiritual part of ourselves exist and literally rescue ourselves. We are ending all codependent behaviors because we are now in an interdependent relationship with ourselves as we literally bring what has been hiding, stuffed away up into the light within our heart. So, the only requirement to do the Spirit Gateways work is to be willing to feel your heart; even if it's for a moment." - Iana Lahi   How To Open Your Third Eye "When you cleanse your body and your mind, then you're able to release all of what you've received from your ancestors. Once you've continued to stay with the Spirit Gateways' work, then your third eye will open. When your third eye is connected with your heart center, you will come in alignment with your solar plexus in the navel lower belly root center. Once you are aligned and you stay in alignment, you're able to heal that deep DNA at the cellular level. Light is the fastest way to heal at the cellular level but first we have to bring forth what's in the dark recesses of ourselves up and go through that pain process." - Iana Lahi   Why We Must Face Our Pain     "The work that I do is a combination of science and Spirit meeting in the body in a really practical way. We have to face what hurts; the pain inside of ourselves is created from the separation from our original self. In order to heal that gap, we have to face the pain. The pain causes the suffering and it could be thoughts; pain doesn't necessarily have to be physical but once it manifests on the physical level it's telling us that we have to go do the emotional and psychological awakening work of realizing who we are at our core." - Iana Lahi   Links From Today's Show  Spirit Gateways One In Soul by Iana Lahi BE: The Humanity Blueprint Bruce Lipton BE Trainings Light Mastery Academy Drink LMNT - Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Cured Nutrition Botanic Tonics Belcampo Meat Co PaleoValley Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Iana Lahi Facebook YouTube About Iana Lahi Iana Lahi is a Visionary Spiritual Leader and Global Evolutionary Empowerment Teacher who teaches the Spirit Gateways® 21st Century Liberation Roadmap™.

Regardless of what path you want to walk to microdose your adversity, you have to understand that every journey starts with one step. A lot of people are reluctant to take that first step because they feel intimidated or that they've failed themselves for far too long and something I hear people say all the time is, 'I want to get in shape first before I try this.' If that's the headspace you're in, you're telling yourself a lie because the time to try doing something to improve your wellbeing is right now in the body that you're currently occupying and start to figure out that journey as who you are today. - Greg Anderson   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 398 Host of The Endless Endeavor Podcast and Former Police Officer, Greg Anderson, returns one year later after the COVID-19 lockdowns began to discuss the power of microdosing adversity, how we are being divided and controlled by fear, and why freedom is not actually free. What does health freedom mean to you?    Discover how to boost your immune system and live a better life no matter where you are at on your wellness journey by microdosing adversity.   Belcampo Farms Get 20% off of your first Belcampo order with the code WELLNESSFORCE Belcampo was founded with a purpose: to create meat that’s good for people, planet and animals.

The Endless Endeavor Podcast LMNT Greg’s background as a former police officer in Seattle and the viral video he made about his message to other police officers during lockdown. Breaking down what is happening now in the world over a year later since Greg’s last interview with Josh. Why he believes the government sees COVID-19 and vaccines as an opportunity for a power grab. How keeping people in a continuous state of fear and division is actually controlling them. The new division that is keeping us apart as a society: vaccinated vs unvaccinated. Why being angry towards each other for our different beliefs and health decisions is actually hurting us. Howard Zinn Why our freedom is earned every day with courage and simple ways we can express it. The question you should ask yourself about government regulations during COVID-19: “Is it reasonable or is it agenda driven?” Why he believes other police officers should pause and think about how they want to treat their fellow Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic.   [19:00] How We’re Divided & Controlled With Fear Unpacking how we’re being divided and controlled with fear tactics. What human history has taught us that there is a huge percentage of people that like power and to harm others. His experience as a member of the US Army and being deployed in 14 combat deployments. Exploring how fear doesn’t help you with stress or think clearly but paralyzes you. Jocko Willink Easy ways that you can take a stand and share your bravery. His mission to make the USA a better place for his daughters. The fact that we’re avoiding all the things we love about living for nothing more than the purpose of prolonging life during COVID-19.   [26:00] Freedom Is Not Free Alan Watts Then Unlearn Podcast with Cal Callahan Why we are born free but as we grow up we have to unlearn the shackles and antifreedom beliefs that we have been projecting out by the way we live. How we have enabled the antifreedom energy that we’re experiencing. The state of fear that has been created by the government during COVID-19 and how he believes it’s gotten to the strange point where citizens are now enforcing it. His example of everyday division in society when one of his jiu jitsu students was confronted because he walked 10 feet down the wrong side of a grocery store aisle. Why the world seems so backward when people who take care of their health are being berated by those who have neglected theirs for years. How our emotional triggers are entry points for further self-discovery. Triggers that Josh has faced during COVID-19 including how health and wellness leaders with millions of followers haven't spoken up at all about what the COVID-19 pandemic has done to us as a society.   [36:00] Microdosing Adversity Why it’s so important to take care of your physical body through nutrition and exercise but we’re not seeing that in mainstream media because it cannot be monetized as much. Examples of taking care of yourself not just through nutrition and exercise but fasting, mindfulness, and being with your community. Josh’s experience doing a 48-hour fast and Greg’s experience with a 9-day fast. Why microdosing adversity is good for our wellbeing and how to do that with fasting, saunas, and cold baths or showers. What came up emotionally and physically for Greg during his 9-day fast that he had to come to terms with during and afterwards. Sunlighten Sauna Why going for that run, breathwork practice, or time in the sauna is totally worth it for the health benefits it will reap. How, for Greg, Jiu jitsu is the biggest way to microdose your adversity and learn to find comfort in uncomfortable situations. 086 Mark Divine SEALFIT 20X | A DEEPER WHY | One Man's Journey | Physical & Emotional Intelligence Exploring how the average person with no athletic background can microdose adversity. Why your health journey is yours and there’s no better time to start it than now.   [49:20] Q&A with Greg Anderson Why he doesn’t believe it’s possible to experience freedom without interfering in the freedom of others. The inherent dangers and problems that come with being a free person and the impact when you affect other people such as with drugs. Comparing making the best decisions that we can for ourselves and our loved ones OR listening and doing everything the government wants you to do. The dangers that come with trying to make science a ‘God.’ Concerns with where we currently are at with COVID-19 vaccines as we continue to learn more about them as they are issued. Why he believes that it should be your choice to get the vaccine if you want but it shouldn’t be mandatory. The issue we’re facing with wanting people to do, act, and think the same way as us whether you’re for or against the vaccine. Unpacking the 3 fundamental rules of survival and combat. The different roles in your tribe and what might be best for you. What overreaching is and how it’s gradually showing up in our government. Cured Nutrition Belcampo Meat Co PaleoValley breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show   America Divided By Fear "The fact that the government is moving to restrict all of these freedoms is unsettling but the most bizarre thing that we've seen is they're doing it in a way where citizens are doing it and enforcing it amongst each other. So, the government has created this state of fear that is so great that if you don't fall in line with it, other people are coming after you. Other people are going to confront you. Other people are going to report you." - Greg Anderson   Microdosing Adversity 101 "I microdose my adversity a hundred different ways. I sit in hot saunas, I spend time in freezing water, I train hard, I do martial arts. Restricting what you eat is just another way of putting your body through a little adversity. Since the beginning of time, the human experience wasn't eating three meals a day and having your digestive tract plugged full 24/7. No; it was feast and famine. You'd kill an animal and get to gorge for awhile and then guess what? Winter comes and none of your crops are growing and the hunts aren't going as well as you had hoped and you're going to go through some periods where you don't have food in abundance. It's natural and it's healthy but now that we don't have that experience based on our lifestyle, we have to implement that on our own." - Greg Anderson   Building Physical Resiliency To Illness "As soon as you're done with that run, HIIT workout, or spent some time in cold water, do you regret that microdosed adversity? No; it's and instant reward and your body knows it. And you don't have to have an elite level of fitness to beat COVID-19. You just have to have a body that functions well and is running on good nutrients. Why aren't we talking about that in the mainstream media?" - Greg Anderson     Links From Today's Show  350 Greg Anderson Greg Anderson IGTV: Are you doing the right thing?

I always say, 'There's no one size fits all,' but with sugar, especially, it truly is an addictive substance. It lights up the same pathways as a drug does. These food products are literally designed to be addictive; there's nothing natural about them and that is part of the problem with trying only to go through intuitive eating because it's very hard to intuitively eat candy because it's not a natural food that our body is prepared to handle... ...Truly when you get into that a routine of healthy eating and then you taste that candy again, it tastes so much sweeter. It tastes so much different than when you were eating it all the time and it was just lighting up your dopamine system type of behavior. So, then you can eat something mindfully in every once in awhile because you can sit there and eat it slowly and enjoy it rather than it be something that your brain is driving you to do. - Kara Collier     Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 397 Director of Nutrition at NutriSense, Kara Collier, explains how Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) can help optimize your health as well as personalize your nutrition for a lifetime, how our emotional intelligence impacts our food choices, the connection between stress and glucose levels plus her top tricks and tips to help curb your sugar cravings and binges.   What if we told you it was possible to track what unique foods affect your body's blood sugar in real time?   If you've been struggling with sugar cravings and poor eating habits, NutriSense and their team of dieticians are here to help.   NutriSense Save $25 on your monthly NutriSense plan with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' Monitor Your Glucose Levels With NutriSense Analyze in real-time how your glucose levels respond to food, exercise, stress, and sleep.

The importance of guiding patients to meet with a mental health specialist to help them with deep wounds around food.

Interestingly a lot of times the data itself from the NutriSense CGM device helps connect people to that mind - body connection on their health journey. There is a lot of research on this for data in general but specifically CGMs enhance people to eat more intuitively because then it enhances our introspective sensitivity which is just a fancy way of saying how we feel our body signals. So, a lot of people will leave this program and they will tell us that their unexpected benefit is that they can now have a better connection to their body." - Kara Collier   Building Sticky Habits With NutriSense "The behavior component of using a CGM device is being able to make the connection of what's actually happening when you're reaching for that snack. A lot of people think it's just a small amount of food and it's not really doing that much but it might be having a ripple effect that lasts 6 hours. That's a huge chunk of your day. So, it's building that awareness of what's truly going on the inside and then also allowing you the ability to make some substitutions, try something different the next day, and see how things differ. It really brings the control back to the person because they can easily see what a substitution or what a switch might actually do for their body. It's that immediate gratification that builds sticky habits that are intrinsically motivating." - Kara Collier   How Stress Impacts Your Glucose Levels "In an acute stress moment you'll have a huge glucose spike just like you ate a donut. We see this when people are having a fight with someone when they got in a traffic jam and they're mad and they're yelling at the car in front of them. When they're giving a presentation and they're nervous and stressed. We'll see that glucose spike just like you ate something sugary which is amazing. That's another mind-body connection that helps you realize the impact of stress on the body and for some people that might be every single morning on their commute to work. And it's not just this isolated, random, stressful event. So when you can make that connection that this is what's really happening on the inside and it might be more impactful than you might have believed it was, that is huge. It helps you connect with how you're feeling and how you're dealing with the events that are thrown at you and what's really going on." - Kara Collier     Links From Today's Show  Kara Collier LMNT 365 Dr. Paul Saladino 357 Robb Wolf 048 Nir Eyal 312 Kevin Kelly How do I put on the CGM sensor?

To reach your soul's potential, you must grow through pain. When we resist growth, we suffer. When we remain emotionally and spiritually immature, we resist and fight what is; we take stances, we create and continue to manifest duality and programs of separation. Growth really means to drop into your heart space and get out of your mind because thinking ruins everything. - Rachel Fiori   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 396 Mystical Therapist, Spiritual Teacher, and Creator Of Masters of Self University, Rachel Fiori, shares spiritual and practical tools to help raise your emotional IQ, explains how to fulfill your unique soul's potential plus will guide you to your human spirit integration point and how to create sacred relationships from that space.   How can you stop overthinking and running old programs in your head to fully drop into your heart?   By the end of this episode you will gain the first steps for self mastery of the emotional, behavioral, and mental programs that show up in your psyche.   Belcampo Farms Get 20% off of your first Belcampo order with the code WELLNESSFORCE Belcampo was founded with a purpose: to create meat that’s good for people, planet and animals.

Her mission to help people master life and love. Breaking down her definition of the word, 'potential.' Why so many of us have been brought up to believe that our potential is how successful we can be and why that's simply not true. The fact that we limit ourselves when we only focus on success and how much money we can make. Unpacking the one critical spiritual law that will help you break past limitations when you integrate it into your life:You are spirit but you are also human. Breaking down the differences between the human and the spiritual potential. How pain compares to suffering and how the soul's potential grows through pain.   [14:00] Unpacking Our Emotional, Mental, and Behavior Programs The friction she felt in her heart and soul while working as an occupational therapist and how she wanted to help people. Her curiosity wondering why some people heal but others don't or won't. 277 Christine Hassler  Expectation Hangover by Christine Hassler How her moral ethics ultimately clashed with work in western medicine and she decided to leave and begin her own business. The power in trusting in the Universe even if you don't understand why things are happening the way they are now. Why you should ask yourself what you're meant to learn, how you're supposed to grow, and how you're going to get through difficult moments when they happen. 213 Bonnie Kelly Why it's key to understand how you show up in the world, your triggers, and your behaviors during a personal development journey. The fact that you will never heal anything if you only focus on fixing your behavior programs and dive deep into the emotional and mental ones. Byron Katie   [25:00] What A Spiritual Awakening Experience Is Closing the gap between knowing and doing. Why wisdom, not knowledge, is power. How humanity has lost divine responsibility and what you can do to gain that back. Why it's absolute divine ignorance to believe that you can have anything that you want at the snap of your fingers. Breaking down what a true spiritual awakening is, why it is a lifelong process, and why it is not for the faint of heart. What a soul contract is and why it's different than the concept of free will and choice. How our higher soul has chosen certain life experiences for us before we were even born so that we can learn specific skills, thoughts, and feelings. Why we're self-sabotaging ourselves when we let the fear of success and programs of low self-worth hold us back in the comfort zone. How we deny reality and essentially half of who we are when we embrace the idea of "good vibes only" and don't embrace our emotional pain.   [40:00] Generational Pains & Inherited Programming The impact of her father dying when she was 5 years old and her mother remarrying a physician who was extraordinarily abusive emotionally, psychologically, and sometimes physically.

How our programs can lead us to reenact our own childhoods without us even realizing it such as the example of Rachel's stepfather. Alan Watts What steps you can take with her program to delete old programs and recognize your triggers. Why she seldomly takes clients who haven't had past therapy sessions or guidance because they're not ready for the real work to heal. The fact that relationships aren't here to make you happy; they're to make you more conscious. Why we'll never be able to offer healthy love to another human unless we love and accept ourselves first.   [50:00] Why Our Triggers Are Gifts How triggers can help guide us because they show us where in our lives we don't feel free. Josh's own past triggers and how he has healed what has haunted him. How to check in with yourself and show up in the world as the person you want to be in your life. Why you're not wrong for being where you with your life and neither is anyone else; no judgement. The importance of getting rid of duality in our nation and opposing people because those are programs of separation. How a global 'Dark Night Of The Soul' is occurring on this planet and the pandemic is part of that to show us where we are at standing on opposite sides pointing the finger in judgement instead of facing each other and taking a step towards a loving balance. Why our society is at the age of a preschooler when you consider all of the harm we do to each other or could do with the nuclear weapons we have created. Unpacking both karma (collective and personal) and the law of attraction. Her take on the law of attraction and how the phrase has become such a cliché. Why we usually think of karma as something negative but it can be the universe giving you the next challenge that will take you deeper and higher into yourself.   [58:00] The Space Between The Head & The Heart The pure fact that our thoughts, our emotions, our behavioral actions and we ourselves are nothing but energy. Exploring the programs that we are running through our minds when we judge someone else such as if they're wearing a face mask for example. How to get to zero karmic debt by opening your heart to loving everything and everyone. How exactly generational thoughts, patterns, and beliefs are passed down by the way that we are raised and that is not the same thing as karma. Power vs Force by David R. Hawkins Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender by David R. Hawkins The fact that no matter who we are on this planet, our minds are "bat-shit crazy" and never meant to be the CEO but the heart is. Why we will never experience actual bliss that is in the core center of our heart when we are not anchored in it. What it means to allow the power and the light that you are to grow and expand in the face of anything when you are connected to heart energy. The guidance that you will receive from her program, Masters Of Self University. Differences between the heart chakra and the heart space. The steps she takes people through to get connected to their heart space and energy to heal and deprogram.   [1:14:00] Are You Willing & Devoted To Do The Work? Exploring the dark side to healing such as through tools like plant medicine. Bad experiences Josh has gone through during and after an Ayahuasca ceremony which has been a beautiful lesson for him. Why it' so important that the people who go through her program are divinely responsible, awakened, educated, and trained enough for the inner work process. Ego Is The Enemy by Ryan Holiday Steven Pressfield  Dr. V. Vernon Woolf and Holodynamics Why so many people believe that the ego is the enemy but is it really? Rachel's view on the ego and why she refers to it as the shadow self, low vibrational mental programs, and inner child wounds. Why Rachel believes that the ego can be our best teacher and you will not authentically heal and be more conscious if you do not move through darkness. What mystic spiritualism really is: being a realist as you dissolve all the allusions of the ego.   [1:22:45] How To Mystically Parent Yourself Breaking down how you can mystically parent yourself through your healing journey. Paul Chek | All Is God 390 Hamilton Souther Why she believes both that things happen for a reason and that experiences are divinely guided. How our programming makes us reenact our childhood over and over again until we fully understand them. The universal truth that weak people don't heal and how they can get stronger so that they may heal. How to start learning the universal divine truth language and why it doesn't begin with, "My truth is..." Why healing only happens in the presence of love; weak people don't love, they hate, judge, and spiritual bypassing. Why things like meditation are supportive tools and not a waste of time but it's important to know that they are not transformational healing methods. breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show   Your Spirit & Human Potential "Live from heart centeredness in the sense that you are so powerful that whatever the universe throws at you, no matter how painful, you will love yourself through it and you will love everything and everyone that comes your way even when it is painful. That is your soul's potential - to spiritual maturate. Your human potential means that you can become so emotionally resilient that no matter what the universe throws at you, you've got it and you're gonna make it through no matter what." - Rachel Fiori   Accept, Love, and Transform Yourself "When you learn how to work with mental, emotional, behavioral programs, you also then learn what your inner child is doing, saying, how it's being activated, and how old you really are when you're being triggered and something of discord is awoken within you. You will learn what all these pieces are at the deepest transformational levels in order to then see them, love them, take divine responsibility for them, and then transform them so that they are no longer a part of who you are." - Rachel Fiori   The Ego Is Your Best Teacher "Your ego is your darkness, your shadow self, that part of you that keeps itself small and doesn't realize what power actually means. What heart centeredness actually means. The ego doesn't like to live in reality, it likes to live in its own made up belief world. The ego is selfish but it's our biggest teacher because we would not embrace, honor, and offer selfless love if we didn't first experience adversity. If you want to awaken, you have to go deep into that ugly truth and do the real work." - Rachel Fiori     Links From Today's Show  Masters of Self University “How to Raise Your Emotional IQ” 277 Christine Hassler  Expectation Hangover by Christine Hassler 213 Bonnie Kelly Byron Katie Alan Watts Power vs Force by David R.

Is it possible to have HPA axis abnormalities or low cortisol or low morning cortisol or dysregulated cortisol? Absolutely, that is a real thing but it is fundamentally wrong to claim that adrenal fatigue is the cause or the primary cause or even a common cause of fatigue. It's also fundamentally wrong to claim that adrenal fatigue, the chronic stress leading to low cortisol levels is a real thing - that is also incorrect. You can be exposed to chronic stressors like work or financial stress and even metabolic factors like smoking and over exercising for years or even decades and never get low cortisol levels." - Ari Whitten   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 395 No. 1 Besting Selling Author, Fatigue Specialist, and Founder of The Energy Blueprint, Ari Whitten, shares how to heal your own energy fatigue, breaks down the current dilemma with chronic sickcare in America, lessons he has learned from plant medicine, and what markers are the actual determining factor in what causes fatigue.

What led Ari to become an energy and fatigue specialist and his 'aha' wellness moment. Dr. Joseph Mercola Why he became interested in pursuing a career in natural healthcare rather than western medicine. What he disliked about medical school and why his health began to deteriorate after two years in the program. Why he feels that western medicine is flawed in many different ways with his background in natural health. The fact that many medical students receive basically zero education on nutrition, lifestyle, and root causes of chronic disease. Negative feedback he would receive when he would hint at or suggest educating and giving patients healthy food at the hospital. The high rate of ignorance we see in the western medicine world about the benefits of healthy exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle to heal and prevent illness.   [15:30] The Chronic Sick Care In America How we can avoid being put on chronic sick care or leave the system as quickly as possible. Examples of absurd science from humans who think we can meddle with nature including experiments and technology funded by Bill Gates. The real issue of perception that exists in the world of science including agriculture and healthcare when humans think they are smarter than nature with our technology and chemicals. Why your goal should be to optimize your body's innate capacity for healing and self regeneration if you want to combat fatigue, be healthy, and live a long life. The hard decision he made to finally leave medical school and how that impacted his wellbeing for several years. Fears he had after leaving medical school such as disappointing his family, what if people thought he failed, and what if no one listens to him if he doesn't have the title. His experience becoming a trainer after leaving medical school and later on pursuing a PhD in clinical psychology but then decided he didn't want to be a therapist.   [29:30] Lessons Ari Received From Plant Medicine How, in his unique experience, plant medicine drastically helped his mind with depression and a toxic relationship compared to the talk therapy he was also receiving. Why talk therapy can be extremely beneficial and not all psychological illness is conducive to being treated by psychedelics or plant medicine. His decision to leave studying clinical psychology because he didn't want to be placed in one box for his profession and not be able to practice nutrition if he wished. What lessons Ari received from psychedelics and plant medicine and how those experiences helped heal his depression and expand his consciousness. Dr. Joseph Mercola Joseph Campbell How Ari set aside society's pressure on his career and start following his bliss in teaching people about natural health. Experiences of resistance that he faced as he began to grow the Energy Blueprint community online. Why it takes incredible courage to share your truth and novel ideas out there with the rest of the world. 332 John Wineland Jordan Peterson   [47:30] Creating More Energy At The Cellular Level Breaking down how we can build more energy and cultivate a body that is capable of producing more energy. Ari's own person fatigue experiences in his mid 20s with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and how that led him to explore what natural health has to offer for combating fatigue. Hans Selye (1907–1982): Founder of the stress theory Paul Chek His specific research on adrenal fatigue and what doctors know and don't know about adrenal fatigue. Why conventional medicine is really clueless on adrenal fatigue and how to properly treat it with their four methods: antidepressants, cognitive behavioral therapy, 30 minutes walking a day, and to use stimulants as needed. Exploring what Addison's Disease is and why we shouldn't compare it to adrenal fatigue. His research on fatigue, cortisol levels, and what he has discovered. Adrenal Fatigue: Is It Real? The Hidden Truth About "Adrenal Fatigue" Common thoughts about adrenal fatigue, hormonal changes, and stress that are wrong and outdated. Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers by Robert M. Sapolsky Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst Reprint Edition by Robert M. Sapolsky Common Viruses That Can Trigger Chronic Fatigue (CFS)/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis │The Best Viral Infection Treatment Approach Why fatigue affects us differently depending on outside factors such as work and relationships. Why Stress Causes Fatigue and How To Overcome Stress The fact that people who have disease from lifestyle choices actually have slightly higher cortisol levels than healthy people and thus our adrenal glands don't wear out. Exceptions with autoimmune diseases such as Addison's Disease and its connection to chronic fatigue.   [1:11:00] What Actually Causes Fatigue? What biomarkers are the determining factor of fatigue if cortisol is not the source. The fact that the 50+ studies on the adrenal fatigue theory have all failed to prove that it is true. Why the primary sources that regulate our energy levels are the mitochondria, the brain, and sickness behavior. Dr. Robert Naviaux Unpacking what the cell danger response is and how mitochondria are critical hubs for sensing what is going on in our environments. The two modes of mitochondria based on their environment to either pump out energy or shut down if they detect threats. Dr. Martin Picard on How Stress Affects Your Body (and Your Mitochondria) What sickness behavior is and why one of the fundamental symptoms of it is fatigue. How the human body has evolved to conserve energy to threats by resting and diverting that energy to defending off threats. Metabolic features of chronic fatigue syndrome What the metabolomic panels cover in its biomarker testing for adrenal fatigue and how Dr. Naviaux and his team found that cortisol levels were normal. Why we really overestimate just how much information biomarkers are going to give us about a person's health. The fact that 95% of the time, blood panel tests do not actually identify anything that is abnormal in a person with chronic fatigue. Why lifestyle variables and symptoms are enormous clues as to what is going on with a person's health. What simple steps you can take if you are experiencing chronic fatigue including food and supplements. The Energy Blueprint Supplements 60-Day Energy Blueprint Program 359 Shawn Wells Surfwise trailer breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Creating, Not Gaining, More Energy   "Look inward both literally and metaphorically because the source of energy is your own body's cells. It's not stimulant pills that you take externally or this and that prescription drug. It's how do you build more energy at the cellular level. How you create and cultivate a body that is capable of producing more energy. That's what it's all about." - Ari Whitten   The Unique Impact Between Sleep & Cortisol Levels   "Even if you are healthy and don't have fatigue, just the one factor of being an night owl chronotype and going to bed late at night will dramatically alter your cortisol levels. If you take a group of healthy people who are either morning people or night owls and you look at their cortisol levels and you chart it, those people on average will have cortisol levels that would get them diagnosed by someone who believes in adrenal fatigue as having adrenal fatigue. However, that's not at all what's going on; it's just a function of being a night owl chronotype. That's one factor but circadian rhythm and sleep dysregulation across the board is the single most common reason for HPA axis dysfunction." - Ari Whitten   Exposing America's Sick Care System     "How do we mimic, support, and optimize the natural systems of the human body? It's literally the difference between looking at a disease like diabetes or neurological disease and saying, 'How can we study what biochemical pathway is causing this disease and how can we develop a drug that interrupts that biochemical pathway that will therefore  cure this disease?' which is a paradigm which almost never works to actually cure diseases; 97% of drugs can only address symptoms at best versus the paradigm that says, 'How can we understand the big picture of what are the root causes that led to the development of that condition in the first place, address those causes while understanding that the human body has an innate capacity for self-regeneration and self-healing, and how can we give the right inputs to allow the body to express that?'... ...These are fundamentally different ways of thinking and if somebody's goal is to actually be healthy and energetic and live a long life to avoid developing chronic disease, be on over 15 prescription drugs, and be in and out of the hospital with a terrible quality of life - If you actually want health, energy, and longevity, the goal is to optimize your body's innate capacity for healing and self-regeneration."  - Ari Whitten     Links From Today's Show  Ari Whitten The Energy Blueprint Podcast Dr. Joseph Mercola Joseph Campbell 332 John Wineland Jordan Peterson Hans Selye (1907–1982): Founder of the stress theory Paul Chek Adrenal Fatigue: Is It Real?

There are 3 Pillars to what I personally believe will shift someone's life and what I stand for which are Consciousness, Creativity, and Community. Consciousness brings you to the awareness of new ideas, ways of thinking, and ways of being. Consciousness makes us aware of the choices that are available to us. Creativity is the thing that isn't attached to the result. Creativity is the purest expression of your soul. It is the most healing frequency that you can bring through your body. It's your unadulterated, unfiltered expression and it doesn't have to be tied to how you earn your living but it gets to be part of your life. The third one is community and I think that it's very important for us to have a community that supports us along the way. - Adam Roa    Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 394 Host of the The Deep Dive Podcast as well as Founder of both The C.R.E.A.T.E Community and Surrendered Artists, Adam Roa, explores the masks we wore before COVID-19, the 3 Pillars to being yourself, how to integrate the ego using creative arts, and how he has used his own trauma to propel him forward in life.    Are you experiencing a radical life change or are you craving one?    This podcast episode is divine timing as Adam discusses the power of freewill and manifestation during difficult times.    Belcampo Farms Get 20% off of your first Belcampo order with the code WELLNESSFORCE Belcampo was founded with a purpose: to create meat that’s good for people, planet and animals. What started as one mom’s desire to feed her family the healthiest meat possible became a mission to revolutionize the industry from the inside out. Belcampo is the pioneer of hyper-sustainable, organic, grass-fed and -finished, Certified Humane meats, broths, and jerkies. The company is on a mission to revolutionize the meat industry for the well-being of people, the planet, and animals by farming meat the right way – with Certified Humane, regenerative, and climate-positive practices, which means it’s better for you, the planet and the animals. Conventionally raised animals are confined to feedlots and eat a diet of inflammatory grains, but Belcampo’s animals graze on open pastures and seasonal grasses resulting in meat that is higher in nutrients and healthy fats.   Listen To Episode 394 As Adam Roa Uncovers:   [1:30] The Masks We Wore Before COVID-19 Adam Roa The Deep Dive Podcast with Adam Roa The C.R.E.A.T.E Community MASKS | Spoken Word Poetry by Adam Roa You Are Who You've Been Looking For by Adam Roa Surrendered Artist Treat Yourself Like Someone You Love by Adam Roa Cosmic Philosophy: A Month In The Light by Adam Roa His belief that art is the highest leverage way that we can shift human consciousness. Exploring the "masks" we ourselves wore even before COVID-19. Asking the question, "How often do we really look at, notice, and see people?" Why we crave to be authentic yet at the same time we are putting up our own walls around the truth of how we're feeling with ourselves. The fact that many people cannot openly admit that they are unhappy in their marriage, with their job, or anything else in their lives. Adam's own biggest "mask" covering his authentic self and how he was able to remove it. His struggles in high school not feeling like he was enough to be accepted by his peers. Why he saw high school as a game that he could play and work his way to being popular yet when he got there he never felt different about himself and his insecurities. The fact that many people believe there is an achievement that is going to change their world forever but then all their thoughts, feelings, and insecurities still remain.   [17:30] Is The Life We're "Supposed" To Live A Lie? Why Adam began questioning if everything else in life is a lie (college, career, money, things) if reaching his goal of popularity in high school didn't subdue his insecurities. How he helps people when they get stuck on their own mountaintop of achievement and still feel unfulfilled. Why we're not allowing ourselves, as a society, to even have a moment to give ourselves permission to take off our masks. Society's expectations of men and why you're not "truly a man" if you let your guard down, fail, or show your emotions. 110 Bedros Keuilian The toxicity in telling someone to "man up" and we need to be having more conversations about emotional intelligence, inner work, and just be more vulnerable. Why Adam openly puts himself out there with his insecurities and vulnerability to help other people. Struggles he has faced with depression, being molested at a young age, and being late to puberty. MyIntent Project The power of setting an intent and embracing a side of yourself that you don't give enough love and attention to every day.   [22:00] The 3 Pillars To Being Yourself How we can begin the process of choosing to give ourselves permission to be ourselves. Adam's 3 Pillars to changing your life: Consciousness, Creativity, and Community. How community and having a tribe has changed Adam's life drastically. Why the "game" of life hasn't been designed for us to do it alone but with the support of others. The moment he sold everything he owned to go in a new direction and the challenges he faced in that transition in January 2013. Adam Roa - Why The Law Of Attraction Isn't Working For You Abraham Hicks What happened when he took a deep dive into studying spirituality. Tai Lopez The fact that we are the sum of the 5 people that we spend the most of our time with in life. Unpacking the 1/3 rule: Why you want 1/3 of the people that you spend time with to be those who look up to you, 1/3 to be peers, and 1/3 to be people that you look up to.   [29:30] The Power Of Free Will & Manifestation In Difficult Times 092 Preston Smiles and Alexi Panos His and his former partner's mission for greater self development and how they teamed up with Preston Smiles and Alexi Panos to help facilitate their trainings. The choice he and his former partner made to give away or sell 75% of their belongings as they surrendered to divine intervention and a new way of living life. Why we will always have the choice in how we respond to our circumstances and environment. What steps you can take to move forward, respond, and be resilient when sudden change impacts your life. How to use other examples of people overcoming difficult obstacles to manifest positive energy in your own life. Why how you respond now to a challenge will create the energetics of your next opportunities. How we can embody bad habits just like we do with good habits even if we have a beneficial goal in mind. Adam's own inner work journey which led him to an Ayahuasca circle and spiritual awakening.   [40:00] How To Integrate The Ego With The Creative Arts The beauty of humility and accepting that maybe you don't have things figured out and this is an opportunity to grow. The fact that we embody all of our current limiting beliefs until we work on them and grow. Why it's so important to integrate your ego because if you don't, the ego blocks the conscious repetition of embodying love, belief in oneself, and beyond. Steps you can take to healthily dissolve and integrate the ego without plant medicine. Why Adam believes that anything that can happen in a plant medicine ceremony can also happen without it. Exploring altered states of consciousness in and outside of plant medicine ceremonies and why these states are a necessity. Breaking down how 98% of our thoughts are ones that we have unconsciously had before and the vast majority come from a space of negativity. Other things you can do to get to a state of altered consciousness such as breatwork, meditation, yoga, or a hard workout. How music, art, and spoken word help us integrate our egos. The fact that true, sustainable change and shifts happen at the emotional level. Why art can bypass so much of the ego mind because we've given it the permission to do that already.   [48:00] The Healing Starts With You About his non-profit, Surrendered Artists, and their mission to teach young people how to use art as a healing technology. How we stop hurt people, especially younger generations, from hurting people by equipping humans to deal with the inevitable hurt. Why his mind suppressed his memory of being sexually molested at the age of 5 years old until he was ready and in an environment to help him heal from it. How art creates a safe space for people to process and share their trauma and how you can equip your children with this tool. Why, unless you're leading with compassion, you won't change a thing on your healing journey. How Adam sees compassion as a way for us to externalize our self love. Why some people including his ex-girlfriend feel that they cannot be as open about their thoughts, beliefs, and emotions like Adam can. His empathy for people who feel like they cannot express themselves and how much they must be hurting because of it. Why we cannot truly have compassion for others until we have compassion for ourselves first. Why you have to feel worthy of the thing you want to call into your life from a place of self-love. The fact that sometimes we have to unlearn things that cut us off from self-love and compassion.   [58:30] Understanding Our Karmic Patterns, Purpose, and Desires Programmed life expectations that Josh learned at an early age that he had to learn to let go of: expect the worst to happen, money causes pain, and people can't be trusted. Why Adam believes that we never actually conquer programmed thoughts, beliefs, and feelings. How Adam views karma not as a cosmic scorecard but what your soul has agreed to including the particular limiting beliefs and wounds that you will take on in this lifetime that will become the edges of your comfort zone. Exploring God's love for us and how we are expressions of that love as we exercise our desires by being in alignment through our work on earth. Paul Chek | All Is God Marci Lock Why writing has become one of the biggest ways for Adam to process his thoughts and emotions. A writing practice for you by answering this question: What is the absolute worst case scenario that you are afraid of right now? Can I be okay with that reality? Adam's own worst case scenario and why he has those fears because he was concerned with how people would view him. How we can change our energy towards what fears frighten us the most by making peace with that possibility and run towards the vision that we want to create for ourselves.   [1:13:30] How Trauma Reveals Our Strength Exploring capital 'T' trauma and Adam's own suppressed memories. JV Crum III Why we might not be 50, 60 years old until possible suppressed memories come back to the surface for us. What it was like for Josh growing up and not knowing what it means to truly love yourself. How to integrate either lower 't' or capital 'T' trauma if and when they come up. The difference between turning your breakdown into a breakthrough and assigning your breakthrough to your breakdown. How we create even more trauma by believing that's how we create our strength. What it means to fully accept and love your trauma compared to tethering it to your strength to create a storyline of victimhood and give it value. Why constant breakdowns and breakthroughs are not the right way to grow and be strong souls. The power of choice we all have in how we respond to our trauma and past abuse. How trauma does not give us strength but reveals our strength. Law of Attraction: How it works and why it does not bring us trauma and abuse.   [1:26:30] How To Properly Process Trauma & Emotions How a person can begin to process their trauma alone or with the help of someone else. Why so many "coaches" and "mentors" out there are just great at recycling content and at marketing their business. His belief that our bodies and souls will heal on their own in direct correlation with how safe they feel. Why facilitation is incredibly beneficial to help someone heal and why he doesn't overvalue his role in the process. How to find a safe place for you to heal whether that is by yourself at home, out in nature, or somewhere else with a group. The fact that so many people are not in safe place at home during lockdown with their abusers. Why we will be dealing with the mental and emotional health damages of COVID-19 for a very long time. What to do if you're so uncomfortable with being left alone with your emotions. Why the goal is not to move through all of your emotions in one moment but over time. Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A. Levine Come to terms that healing is actually a lifelong job; there's no fast pass or quick fix for it. What would happen if we switched our focus from healing to learning, being creative, and playing?     [1:47:00] Tools To Cultivate A Healthy Mind His words of advice for people struggling with mental health and mental illness. Different practices for journaling where you call in your ancestors or the cosmos and allow yourself to write as a vessel for that. The three different ways that Adam enjoys journaling: factual, philosophical exploration, and opening yourself up to be a vessel. Cosmic Philosophy: A Month In The Light by Adam Roa How Adam as opened himself up as a vessel for writing and has shared that experience in his book, Cosmic Philosophy. The power of giving your thoughts and emotions a voice to help you process them and how that was one of the deepest ways that Adam was able to manage his depression. How it took Josh two years to work through and heal the PTSD and OCD he received from a plant medicine ceremony. Why so many people ask him what self-love really is and his thoughts on it today. How to start investing in a relationship with yourself to help you create greater self-love and attract the life that you want from the universe. Why heartbreak can be one of the most impactful experiences that keeps us from greater awareness, consciousness, and personal growth. breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community     Power Quotes From The Show Are You Being True To You?   "The day that everyone started face masks I asked myself, 'How much do we really see someone?' Even if they're walking down the street and I notice them, do I really see them? In society, people are craving authenticity and yet at the same time putting up their own walls around the truth of how they're feeling with themselves. So many people are not being honest with themselves about the fact that they're unhappy in their marriage or their job or where they live or they feel really lonely or whatever it is." - Adam Roa   You Don't Need A Breakdown For A Breakthrough   "You're not strong because of your trauma. You're strong because of how you responded to the trauma which was your inherit birthright of divine strength and spirit. The human spirit is unbelievable! So, why would I tether my strength to that trauma? I'm going to say, 'No.' I brought my strength to respond to that trauma and that is what turned me into this person. Because I used my spirit. I used my strength. I used my courage. I used all of me to work through that trauma and it shaped me in this way but I didn't need that. That didn't have to happen for me to be inherently strong and capable and worthy. If that were the case, we would be intentionally inflicting it upon everyone because it would be a necessity but it's not. The breakdown isn't the only way we to grow and get the breakthrough. You can find the breakthrough differently and we need to stop assigning our strengths to our traumas and woundings." - Adam Roa   What You Resist Persists     "If you really go into your worst case scenario of what could happen and just make peace with that possibility - what we resists persists - and so you're no longer in resistance to that scenario. If it happens, it happens and you can still do everything you can to not go in that direction. That's not going to change but the energy changes. You're now not running away from your worst case scenario but running towards the vision you have for yourself." - Adam Roa     Links From Today's Show  The Deep Dive Podcast with Adam Roa The CREATE Community MASKS | Spoken Word Poetry by Adam Roa You Are Who You've Been Looking For by Adam Roa Surrendered Artist 311 | Adam Roa: The Intersection Of Art And Personal Development Treat Yourself Like Someone You Love by Adam Roa Cosmic Philosophy: A Month In The Light by Adam Roa MyIntent Project Adam Roa - Why The Law Of Attraction Isn't Working For You Abraham Hicks Tai Lopez 092 Preston Smiles and Alexi Panos Paul Chek | All Is God Marci Lock JV Crum III Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A.

When you look at immunity, you're looking at wellness. Immunity is about peak optimal performance; that your needs are met, you're not stressed or anxious, and you're able to focus. I think animal wellness supports that in terms of providing optimally nutrient dense food and with minimal inflammation. Our immune system is compromised when we're inflamed and inflammation comes primarily from junk that's in our food. Eating whole, high nutrient dense, and anti-inflammatory foods is so important for boosting immunity. - Anya Fernald   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 393 Co-Founder and CEO of Belcampo, Anya Fernald, shares her mission to revolutionize the meat industry from the inside out, explains how ethically raised meats can boost your immunity while also helping the planet, and explores our spiritual and emotional connection to food.   How do we create and consume animal products that are good for people, the planet, and the animals themselves?     Join us as Anya shares her mission with Belcampo to revolutionize the meat industry by farming meat the right way with regenerative agriculture and positive climate practices.   Belcampo Farms Get 20% off of your first Belcampo order with the code WELLNESSFORCE Belcampo was founded with a purpose: to create meat that’s good for people, planet and animals.

Her background in food and how she came to be a artisanal cheesemaker in Italy. Obstacles and changes she faced as an expat in Italy for 8 years. The ambitious drive that led her to get out of her comfort zone and seek work outside of the US. Her own personal health shift in Italy compared to how she felt when she lived in the US and had struggles with moodiness, dry skin, split ends, and cavities. Unpacking the slow food movement that Italians live by compared to other countries. What food actually means for our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Why good food doesn't necessarily mean it's been prepared by a professional chef but that it is clean and both whole ingredients and methods have been used. The importance of slowly growing our food, using micronutrient rich soils, and being mindful about consumption. How she has become such a strong leader for Belcampo by tuning into her intuition, speaking her truth, and being driven by their mission.   [19:00] Revolutionizing Meat: People, Planet & Animals 357 Robb Wolf The fundamental ethics that Belcampo stands behind with the treatment of their animals including raising them outdoors to support their customer's wellness. Why it's so important to raise animals in a way that is aligned with their own evolutionary context. Unpacking this fight between ethical consumption of meat and people who don't believe in eating meat. How PETA harassed her for two years including one time when she was giving a talk while also 9 months pregnant. Why PETA's question to her, "Would you eat your dog?" doesn't even make sense from a pathogen perspective as dogs are carnivores. The empathy that she has for people in PETA and why she believes their success is her success because they are fighting for the same thing: the end of animal confinement in agriculture. Belcampo's positive impact on agriculture yet the amount of grass-fed and finished farms is still less than 1%. Why many of the vegan movement messages are correct when it comes to confinement agriculture.   [27:30] Food's Connection To Spiritual and Emotional Health 376 Mike Salemi  How humans have lost the instinct to seek out whole foods as our sense of smell has decreased with the use of food packaging, processed ingredients, and marketing. Her mission to give people a product that smells amazing, has a great story and you can both connect with and feel good about purchasing. The challenge that she has for the health and wellness movement now with the simplification that food is fuel or that protein is protein powder to the point that it's playing the agroindustrial game. Why adding mindfulness to food can help us win against the agroindustrial game of processed and poorly raised, grown, or created food. Unpacking the fact that the most uncommon food to eat comes from pigs because of it being an omnivore and fear of getting sick from something such as trichinosis. Why it doesn't make sense for humans to eat carnivorous animals because they have a very similar microbiome to us and any parasites they may carry could then live in our guts. Her life as a vegetarian and experiencing poor skin conditions, low energy, weight gain, and depression  for almost 10 years before adding meat back into her diet when she moved to Italy. How she got into artisanal cheese making after being a traditional baker using whey. Why she's not anti-vegetarian and believes it works great for some people, it just didn't work well for her body.   [32:30] Healing Energy From Ethical Meats The fact that a lot of raw meat is often eaten in northern Italy and thus it became a regular part of her diet while she lived in that area and felt great because of it. How her health got worse when she came back to the US as she gained a lot of weight, felt lethargic, was grumpy, and had brain fog. Exploring how her focus on better health for herself helped launch the start of Belcampo. The real cost of food and why it's affordable to eat grass-fed and finished meat such as that from Belcampo. Unpacking the truth about organic and the hidden costs of not eating organic food. Her own rules for buying organic foods for own household. Why cows are able to process and filter out toxins such as GMOs unlike fruits and vegetables. Exploring the slow movement of grass-fed, organic meat and why the health of these animals are important for your health too. How the amount of protein in her animals differs compared to conventionally raised meat. What meat labels you should look for at the grocery store: grass-fed and grass-finished, 100% grass-fed, and pasture-raised.   [40:30] The Issues With Raising Conventional Chickens Joel Salatin 362 Zach Bush MD The fact that most common medicine in the US is antacid and most people have GI issues. Why it's so important to pay attention to what our bodies are telling us if we eat foods that make us feel sick. How eating meat again was an important piece of Anya's gut feeling better again. The fact that the third largest greenhouse gas emitter is meat that we throw away as we overproduce meat that is raised in extremely poor conditions. Why pricing is an important factor in being mindful of what we buy and put into our bodies. Exploring the impact of raising chickens either the conventional or natural way Morgan Spurlock - SUPER SIZE ME 2 Official Trailer - Holy Chicken The fact that conventional chickens can be processed by being bathed in chlorine and pumped up to be sold at higher prices with less nutrient value.   [47:30] How Conventional Chicken Is Raised In Stressful Environments Why chicken can be really complex as we our meat consumption of it is 60% and it is the most changed as far as pricing and perceived cultural value in the past 6 decades. How the high-stress environment that chickens are raised in and continuous exposure to antibiotics suppresses their microbiome and leads to rapid weight gain. The fact that some chickens are under so much stress from being kept to lay eggs to forced molting in their environment. The Meat Racket: The Secret Takeover of America's Food Business by Christopher Leonard The horrible conditions that some people work in and how it can also impact those who live nearby the farms. Why you should go for pastured, organic, air-chilled chicken if you are going to buy it. What happens when you degut an animal and why contamination is low for beef but high for chickens. The fact that on average even USDA approved chicken, 48% of them have some fecal matter on them. Doctors Sue USDA for Ignoring Concerns Over Fecal Contamination of Chicken How to know if your chicken has been dunked in a bleach bath because a gooshy, white liquid solution will come out.   [53:30] Ethical Meats & Immunity How to build and boost your immunity with ethical meat consumption. Why a lot of our gut health issues have to do with a the glyphosate, antimicrobials, and bleach that is in our food. The fact that all flour is now treated with antimicrobials because of the issues with E.coli. Why you might not be intolerant to gluten but have a strong reaction to antimicrobials in your food. How the strong antiviral and antimicrobial sprays on planes while traveling has affected her gut health lately. The power of nutrient dense foods to boost our immunity and wellness. Why bloating and holding onto water is a sign that there is inflammation in the body. 365 Dr. Paul Saladino The fact that most people who start eating higher amounts of animal proteins reduce their inflammation and physically look less puffy. Anya's experience following a strict carnivore diet and the healthy benefits she received from it but why she isn't following it in the long term. Why not everyone's body can handle a ton of fruits and vegetables and so they find that a meat-based diet is better for their bodies. The problem the US is facing with land that is not sustainable for growing crops yet animals can still graze on them and help redistribute seeds. Historical records of agriculture and the planting of crops that have succeed and failed such as from the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl eras. The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan   ] [1:06:30] How Anya Has Become A Leader For Women In Business The biggest trigger that Anya has faced: Being dismissed as somebody who is good at marketing. Why she doesn't waste her time worrying about the other competition. How they've determined their prices based on their cost and allocation of resources. Why she focuses on spending every single moment of the day taking care of herself or making things better for her company and employees. Words of wisdom she wants to pass on women who also work in the world of business. How social media has helped her rediscover herself as an authentic leader. The feminine characteristics she is proud of in addition to being a boss. Why eating ethical meats helps us balance our masculine and feminine energies. Breaking down why healthy animal protein does allow you to have more vital femininity. What wellness and self-care practices she has invested in for personal growth and self-discovery. The benefits she has received from having a mentor to help and guide her path. Start With Why by Simon Sinek breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show Clearing Out GMOs, Bleach, & Antimicrobials In Our Food   "A lot of the issues that we have with digestion have to do with the glyphosate, bleach, and antimicrobials that are in our food. For example, all flour is now treated with antimicrobials because of the E.coli issues so you don't get sick if you eat raw cookie dough. So, when people think they're intolerant to gluten, they may actually be reacting to a strong antimicrobial that their food is infused with. From an immunity perspective, clearing out glyphosate, bleach, and antimicrobials in our food is the number one thing to do." - Anya Fernald   The No. 1 Rule About Eating Organic Foods "There are certain things I will never eat if they are not organic and that is anything that has a very thin skin and no protective exterior membrane. So, something like a blueberry, a strawberry, zucchini or lettuce. Avocado? No problem; I'll eat a non-organic avocado. Corn occasionally? Sure; It has a husk. If there's a cabbage that's not organic, I'll peel off the exterior sections before eating it but that's not my everyday choice. Be rational - the thinner the membrane as well as the sweeter it is inside, the more careful you need to be about organic foods. What about meat? These animals have all these organs that make them great at processing and filtering out toxins. Will you get glyphosate from a cow that ate GMOs? No way; you can't make a better machine that is able to filter out toxins than a cow but eating organic animals is more about being the change that you want to see in the world." - Anya Fernald   Human Wellness Is Supported By Animal Wellness   "From a fundamental integrity perspective, the most important factor of ethical meat is to raise the animals outdoors. This is a key piece to human health. Evolutionarily, human wellness is supported by animal wellness. We need to look at systems that allow animals to live in an evolutionary context; in systems that are aligned in a way with their own evolution." - Anya Fernald     Links From Today's Show  Food Network | Anya Fernald 357 Robb Wolf 376 Mike Salemi  Joel Salatin 362 Zach Bush MD Morgan Spurlock - SUPER SIZE ME 2 Official Trailer - Holy Chicken The Meat Racket: The Secret Takeover of America's Food Business by Christopher Leonard Doctors Sue USDA for Ignoring Concerns Over Fecal Contamination of Chicken 365 Dr. Paul Saladino The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl by Timothy Egan Start With Why by Simon Sinek Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Anya Fernald Facebook Instagram LinkedIn Belcampo Facebook Instagram Twitter YouTube   About Anya Fernald Anya Fernald is the Co-Founder and CEO of Belcampo. She is an entrepreneur, chef, and agriculture expert, appearing as a judge on the Food Network's Iron Chef America, Iron Chef Gauntlet, and The Next Iron Chef. After experiencing the positive effects that eating clean meats had on her own health–and recognizing the impact of the quality of life of the animals we eat–she set out on a journey to produce the highest-quality meats there are, both in the ethics of how they’re raised as well as pure deliciousness. Fernald was born on a raw-milk dairy farm outside Munich, Germany, while her parents were teaching and researching abroad. When she was 3 years old, her family moved back to the United States, eventually settling in Palo Alto, California. After graduating from Wesleyan University with a degree in political science, she received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, leading to work as an itinerant cheesemaker in Europe and North Africa. In November 2012, the first Belcampo Meat Co. storefront opened its doors in Marin County, California, following the opening of Belcampo Butchery, a 20,000 square foot, USDA-approved multi-species slaughter facility designed by animal welfare expert Temple Grandin, and a nearby 27,000-acre (11,000 ha) farm. It has butcher shops and restaurants in Los Angeles, Marin, Santa Monica, San Francisco, San Mateo, Oakland, and New York. Belcampo also sells meat in Erewhon Grocery Stores.

When we do something like this, we're holding ourselves hostage in versions of our life that don't work for us so that we can look like we are surviving and getting by. I get why people do that and sometimes we forget that living in and of itself is an achievement. You have to get out of bed, go to school, sometimes we don't feel well, you have to make money and put food on you table. It's an achievement just to exist; it requires a lot from us." - Ashley Stahl   Fear Of The Unknown & Misery   "This dynamics between fear of the unknown and our misery in our current situation are always at play in our lives, our career, and our decisions. The fear of the unknown will usually paralyze somebody but they won't launch in and override it until their misery in their current state is so much that they no longer care about the unknown because they're too miserable. So I help people figure out what they can do to lower that threshold so that they don't have to get to misery; they can start asking questions when they're lukewarm too many days in a row." - Ashley Stahl   Clarity Comes From Engagement     "If you don't really know yourself, you're just going to turn your career and life into this graveyard of trial and error. Sometimes there's some great things about that but I think the world makes way for people who do have clarity. It's not to say that we're always going to have clarity; we're always constantly in transition. That's who we are; we are transitioning. So, my biggest thing for anyone who really wants something, is for them to make the decision to go on the path and get that clarity because in order to get somewhere new, you need to do something new. Clarity comes from engagement; it's never just going to come from thought. That's like sitting in a rocking chair and hoping you're somewhere else by the end an hour later." - Ashley Stahl     Links From Today's Show  You Turn: Get Unstuck, Discover Your Direction, Design Your Dream Career Three Questions to unlock your authentic career: Ashley Stahl at TEDxBerkeley How to figure out what you really want | Ashley Stahl | TEDxLeidenUniversity You Turn Podcast Ashley's Quiz: What Career Path Is Actually Right For You? 333 Dr. Kelly Brogan Dr. Joe Dispenza How the Coronavirus Outbreak Has – and Hasn’t – Changed the Way Americans Work In a New Study, 90 Percent of Employees Admit to Feeling Burned Out.

There's a lot of talk that we need to collectively raise the vibration but it's not done like that. We don't collectively do anything. Transurfing is about accountability for yourself and your actions. 'Tuning into the collective' is a nice way of saying and adhering to a script. External scripts written by others don't really benefit a lot of people. Reality Transurfing you remove yourself from the script, wake up as an individual, and follow a script that is best suited for you, your intentions, and your trajectory in life. The cool thing is, when you raise your frequency, you raise the frequency of others around you and so on and so forth. - Renée Garcia   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 391 Founder of the International Transurfing Institute, Renée Garcia, unpacks what reality transurfing is and how you can use this psychological tool for personal development, shares her own personal success story of transcending her poverty into abundance and sickness into healing plus why we fall into the trap of unhappiness by seeking fulfilment outside of ourselves and how you can escape this mentality.   Are you living to your fullest potential?

How narcissism can be weaponized in the world of self development. Exploring the transurfing modality that "Anything goes! As long as you are not hurting another person or people." Alan Watts Her definition of success and how she sees it in her own life and mission. How the human psyche traps us to think we're safe when we have money or this and that. What wellness means to her and where you can further connect with her online. breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Power Quotes From The Show   What 'Anything Goes' Means For Transurfers   "Transurfing is a knowledge based in non-duality. We don't really believe in black and white. We believe in what is good for you. In that regard, I definitely could understand how some people could view reality transurfing as being a tool for a narcissist but I think that term is really thrown around in our culture. When you guilt someone or you call them a narcissist, what you're attempting to do is adhere that person to the script of your choosing. In the transurfing modality, we say 'Anything goes as long as you are not hurting another person or people.' Transurfing is about opening your eyes to how society guilts you or pressures you into adhering to a script so that you can do your own thing." - Renée Garcia   Are You Ready for Reality Transurfing?   "People love the idea of transurfing: the conversations, the concepts, and how it makes them feel but at the end of the day many of them lack the desire or the intent or the ability to actually take action in their lives and move in the direction of the reality they desire. The people who take action are actually taking my words, my videos, my lessons, or my course and they're applying them to their lives and they're seeing results. Your reality will not change if you're just entertained by reality transurfing and don't actually do anything." - Renée Garcia   Finding Happiness Within Your Soul Fraile     "The more stuff I gained, the more panicked I became because nothing was making me happy. I had the profession, and the condo, and a lot of things that people would love to have but I still didn't feel fulfilled. What finally made me feel some sense of happiness, fulfillment, and meaning was to finally disconnect from all the external things that I believed or was told would bring me happiness and tune into a place I had never explored before and that is what we call the soul fraile in reality transurfing. The soul fraile is the specific code of who you are as an individual and acting from that place instead of connecting to your external environment and doing what it compels you to do. That's why so many people are unhappy today; because they're living from the external rather than the internal way." - Renée Garcia     Links From Today's Show  LMNT Belcampo Farms Reality Transurfing Institute International Transurfing Institute Community Power vs. Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior by David R.

More than anything, the plant medicine industry needs to hear a message of responsibility. They need to understand the true power of what they're engaging with and they need to understand that these plant medicines are not just medicines if you administer them. You're not taking on a glorified role of a bartender prescribing a tea or some kind of plant elixir to somebody. These are unbelievably serious and profound plants that have literally shaped human consciousness over thousands of years and there's a fundamental reason in the Amazon that the true practitioners of the lineages of medicine go through 10 to 15 or even 20 years of apprenticeship.  - Hamilton Souther Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 390 Author, Master Shaman, Chairman/Founder of Blue Morpho as well as Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Sizzle Media, Hamilton Souther, shares how to tell if a plant medicine retreat center is the real deal or not, how to know if you are a good candidate for an Ayahuasca ceremony as well as how to integrate, know, and love your shadows.   Have you had an experience with plant medicine?

Shamans have to be properly trained and know how to use plant medicine just like a surgeon trains to do a knee replacement. You, as a practitioner of the plant medicine, need to be trained to be able to diagnose somebody, look at them, understand where they're coming from energetically, and literally straighten out all of the problems they have energetically in that multidimensional field. You have to be able to navigate all of that and ultimately have the person come out on the other side of their ceremony having had healing and you can see that the affliction is no longer there and they have had a healing transformation."  - Hamilton Souther   The Dark Side Of Plant Medicine: Manipulation & Mind Games   "The dark side of plant medicine is the opposite of healing someone. This darkness is a form of manipulation and a form of distortion that is coming from a really twisted kind of intention where there are power games taking place. It's like sleight of hand magic, filling someone with an illusion, and taking somebody who's already in a state of need and putting them in an even greater state of need. There are all different kinds of means of doing that and it's taking advantage of people in a way that's really frowned down upon by the people who practice medicine. You have to be very careful about the practitioners that you interact with because of the power and influence that they can hold; especially when somebody is in a vulnerable state." - Hamilton Souther   How To Choose A Plant Medicine Practitioner     "Be grounded in the best of your ability when picking a practitioner to have these plant medicine ceremonies with. The real key is to understand how important the person is who is administering the ceremony. Don't make the mistake of thinking it doesn't matter who's administering the ceremony because it's all the plant medicine; no, on the contrary, the people who are administering that ceremony are unbelievably important to the outcome that you're going to have from it." - Hamilton Souther [spacer height="20px"]   Links From Today's Show  Belcampo Source Independent Entertainment The Mystical Secrets of Medicine vs Sorcery by Hamilton Souther Mystical Secrets to Money Magic by Hamilton Souther Tim Ferriss: An Urgent Plea to Users of Psychedelics: Let’s Consider a More Ethical Menu of Plants and Compounds Paul Chek: All Is God Carl Jung 032 Katie & Gay Hendricks Alan Watts 312 Kevin Kelly Sorcery Vs.

The lessons and learnings that Josh has received in 2020 and now in 2021. Josh's mission with Wellness Force and how that has shifted over the years. What it actually means to be closer to love and a loving God. Why the mind is just this gateway to what the heart and the soul and the connection to God outside of us and inside of us are really seeking. The fact that there is actually no way to move forward with life as a collective and as a society without forgiveness. What tools Wellness Force can give you along your wellness journey including breathwork.io and the M21 Wellness Guide.   [3:00] If We Can Breathe We Can Choose The power of knowing that if we can breathe, we can choose. Why love is not a light switch that we can simply switch but is an ever-present, everywhere and nowhere, all encompassing energy. How we can forgive and let go of our judgement of others and where they're at in their wellness journeys. What steps we can take to reveal and heal our own emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental masks.   [6:00] Coming To Terms With Ourselves Unpacking our own sins and wounds that need healing. The fact that many of us have scars from religion and even terms such as "spirit" or "God." Spiritual bypassing that exists in our world and why the inner work is so important. Josh's own self-hatred, judgements of self, and unforgiven sins that have bubbled up for him in 2020 and what work he is doing to heal them. How the healing can begin within yourself with a guided mantra from Josh.   [9:00] What Is Intelligence Anyways? Why intelligence is not how smart you are but how you embody love. Josh's call to arms as a society for all of us to take a deep breath and to learn how to use the power of breathwork so that we can embody God's love. Paul Check | All Is God Rachel Fiori The power of asking yourself what mental, emotional, and behavioral programs are you running? The mirror of collected wounds in our society that we need to heal by reconnecting with God. breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Transcript From God Is Love | Solocast Josh Trent (00:00): God is love. God is love, and this is what we've all gotten wrong. And I have compassion for all of us, myself included because we've been doing the best that we can. And I know this resonates with you because we are all walking this path, this pathway towards knowing the God inside of ourselves and knowing the God that directs and guides all things. And so in this reflection, in this transmission, in this episode, I get to share with you my learnings, my lessons, and my teachings that have transpired for me in 2020, 2021. It's been quite a long time. It's been a long time since I've done a solocast. I've been really focusing on sharing other people's messages and missions and spotlighting people that I believe in my deepest heart are here to serve the world, make it a better place and reconnect us to the God within ourselves and the God outside of ourselves.   Josh Trent (01:08): But I made a snap judgment a long time ago that I'm taking ownership for now. And that is I thought that by sharing the mental constructs, the mental faculties, the lists, the PDFs, the guides, and all these things that somehow that was going to get myself and all of us closer to love, closer to loving the God inside of us, closer to loving the God outside of us. But the reality is the mind is just the gateway. And this is really the truth. The mind is just this gateway to what the heart and the soul and the connection to God outside of us and inside of us are really seeking. And that is, we are all seeking forgiveness - all of us. We are all seeking forgiveness, a reconnection to the love within ourselves and being kind to ourselves and one another along the way.   Josh Trent (02:05): I have had in my almost 41 years of life, so many sins, and I laugh with a tear in my eye because these sins must be forgiven. There is actually no way to move forward with my life or for any of us to move forward as a collective, as a society without forgiveness. I once heard someone say forgiveness is not a gift that you give to another person. It's a gift that you give to yourself. And I think what's really powerful about that is I have not been giving myself that gift.   Josh Trent (02:48): And let this be a call for all of us, let this be a call to you and your heart to begin to take deeper breaths through your nose. Whether it's in our BREATHE: Breath and Wellness Program or not, whether it's in the M21 Guide, just that short box breath practice, may we all have the courage and may we all be connected to our heart and to our soul and to God inside of us and to God outside of us, that if we can choose to take a breath, if we can breathe, we can choose. Truly if we can breathe, we can choose.   Josh Trent (03:30): Se posso respirare posso scegliere. And knowing that, knowing that if we can breathe we can choose, what else can we choose if we choose to breathe? What else can we choose to do? How else can we choose to be? Who can we become if we choose love? And love is not a light switch. Love is not this switch on the wall that you can flick. Love is an ever-present, everywhere and nowhere, all encompassing energy that holds us like your grandfather or your grandmother or your mother and your father held you when you were a baby. And you may not even remember it. But I guarantee if you ask them, they do. That is God. That is love. The feeling of trust and security and safety and connection to being held by your own mother, your father, your grandfather, a brother, a sister, a friend, anyone that is pure in their heart, pure in their soul about what love really is.   Josh Trent (04:32): And what love really is, and this is what I've learned over the past six years of this podcast, love is not an action. Love is not an action. Love is a way of being. And we are all collectively kneeling at the altar here, either the altar of forgiveness or the altar of self-judgment and self-hatred. And so I asked myself today and I ask us all, what altar are we kneeling at? Are we kneeling at the altar of darkness and feeding the beast where I'm getting angry at someone wearing a mask? I'm getting angry at people who really I get to have compassion for. They don't see between the lines. They don't see between the trees. They don't understand what's really happening in our world because when I go to the altar of truth and I ask God, "God, Spirit, please connect through me. Allow me to be your servant. Allow me to be someone that puts your work into this world so that I can embody the love that you show me is real, every breath every day," that is the altar that I choose to pray at.   Josh Trent (05:44): The other altar of darkness is the altar of judgment and betrayal and vitriol and anger and hatred and me pointing the finger at someone else. And so I get to ask myself today and we all get to ask ourselves, as I point my finger at the people wearing a mask, what mask am I wearing emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally? What mask am I wearing that I'm not willing to take off either? And the mask that I've been wearing is that I can't handle everything that I deserve. I can't handle everything that I deserve. Isn't that interesting? Isn't that interesting? And if you're resonating, just take a breath.   Josh Trent (06:36): What mask are you wearing? What mask are you wearing? You can name out a thousand things, but behind that mask is sins that have not yet been forgiven. And I don't mean this in a religious way. I know myself and a lot of us have wounding around religion, even around the term spirit or God. They've been so fucked up for so long. We have people like the Medical Medium. We have people that are out there doing plant medicine ceremonies, and people that are with the good intentions trying to help others, but yet they themselves are not healed. They themselves are wounded operating as if they are whole, as if they are unwounded and it's a lie.   Josh Trent (07:15): And so this is the call to arms. There is a deep, deep and powerful call to arms happening. When I look back on COVID and mask wearing and cognitive dissonance and Black Lives Matter and racism and all of these things, all of this stuff, all of this putrid, black, dark energy is bubbling to the surface so that it can be healed. Don't you get it? That's what's really going on right now. All the things that are coming up in me, my self-hatred, my judgments of self, my unforgiven sins about the way I treated women in the past or the pornography I watched, or the people that I hurt, this is our work. This is your work.   Josh Trent (08:01): Look within yourself today. Be still. Put your hand on your heart, take these deep breaths and ask God within yourself and outside of yourself, please forgive me. Please show me how I can forgive myself. This is the day that the healing begins - right now. You listening to this with me, this message, this is where the healing begins right now. Not because it's a mental construct, but because you and I together in this community, on this podcast since Day 1 and especially today and how we move forward, our commitment to discovering this love, discovering this physical and emotional intelligence.   Josh Trent (08:45): And by the way, intelligence is love. Intelligence is the embodiment of love. Intelligence is the way that I hold my future son, I hold my wife, I hold my brothers and sisters. That is intelligence. Intelligence is not a book you read or a podcast you listen to. It is what you have embodied. And it's living in your body right now. And all of this call to arms is as a society, individually with myself and you in this audience, it is for all of us to take a deep breath, to learn how to use the power of the breath so that we can embody God's love. The embodiment of God's love is not something you can fake. It's not something that you can read in a book. It has to only, and I'm laughing because I fell into this trap myself in the past. God's love can only be something that you embody from experience, from actually knowing God.   Josh Trent (09:41): Key references from this podcast today. It feels good to do a solocast. If you like this, let me know. Write me on social, connect with me. This is pure. This is raw. This is from the heart. And I may lose people, I may gain people. It's all good because it's all God and it's all love. So, key resources from this. The episode that we did with Paul Chek, it's wellnessforce.com/AllIsGod. Our key resource for you to begin this unpacking process of not just your sins, but also your programs, how you're showing up, what, as my mentor would say, Rachel Fiori, my friend, my colleague, my business partner, what mental, emotional, and behavioral programs are you running? What are those programs? And are you happy with the results of your programs? If not, reach out to me. I trust I can guide you. I trust that I can help you. And I trust that if I can't, I can refer you to someone that can.   Josh Trent (10:37): So, know that as you listen to this, as you feel the words that are coming through me and that are being absorbed by your consciousness, trust that if they're resonating inside of you, they are resonating for a reason. That is the bread crumbs that are being left by Spirit for you to follow them and that should put a smile on your face.   Josh Trent (10:56): And the last resource I'll leave you is the BREATHE: Breath and Wellness Program. This program was built from my heart to yours. And you have my absolute promise that if you, especially in module one video, I believe number seven, the box breathing, seven minutes, if you just master that one video, you can download it on an app, you can do it on desktop, if you just download that one video, you will begin to unpack decades of generational trauma, decades of stress, and decades of old programs like mine possibly that have said things like this. It's too hard. You don't deserve it. Who are you to be so big? And you won't be able to handle it even when it comes. And we know that if we're still enough, and I know that if I'm still enough, and we know that if we can do our work to heal ourselves, then all the mask wearing, all the racism, all the violence and all the utter bullshit that is something society has been praying to on the altar of darkness, will not be able to breathe anymore.   Josh Trent (12:04): And so I think about this metaphor of George Floyd where he was kneeled upon by someone who was wounded themselves. And I think about how that's the mirror for the wounds in our collective society where we are dying to be reconnected to God. And this is the big question. Do we have to die as a society in order to be reconnected, to love, in order for love to reign? Because at the end of it all, and you know this and I'll leave you with this, God is love. God is love.   Josh Trent (12:39): If you resonate with this today, go to wellnessforce.com/M21. You can download your breathwork, calm mind, really energy boosting. That's the biggest thing it does. Energy boosting guide. It's wellnessforce.com/M21. If you want to work with me one-on-one, you can start by going to the BREATHE: Breath and Wellness Program, and you can find that at breathwork.io. I'm sending you so much love and so much wellness. And until I see you again on the next solocast or on the next podcast, or until you and I discover this physical and emotional intelligence so we can live our life well, which is the whole point of this show and that's really the whole point of anyone who's on the path to awakening or on the path to living a better loving, connected life, I'm wishing you love and wellness.   Build Immunity.

I wrote Fast This Way to explain both the spiritual as well as physical side of fasting but what people get wrong is that they will try to use the spiritual practice of fasting in the middle of a work day. There's such a thing as a working fast which you do for more energy, high performance, and anti-aging and then there's something called a spiritual fast which is something that you do for spiritual development and they're just fundamentally different. Until you do a longer fast with rest, relaxation, meditation, and introspection, you're not going to see it. So, I see a lot of people trying fasting and then it doesn't work and they say they couldn't do it right because it sucks. Well, when you do intermittent fasting right it doesn't have to suck. - Dave Asprey   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 389 New York Times bestselling author, podcast host of Bulletproof Radio, as well as Founder and Chairman of Bulletproof, Dave Asprey, returns to discuss his latest book, Fast This Way, how mitochondria dictate our willpower, the benefits of prebiotics and soluble fiber supplements during a fast plus whether you should fast alone or with a group.   What is the right way to do a fast?

There's a fasting trap, a vegan trap, a keto trap, and an exercise trap and they're all from the same basic human behavior which is, 'You know what, if something is good, more is better.' If you go into keto and you stay in keto all the time, you will hate your life eventually. You'll feel great for a while and then when it stops working, you'll think it's because you're not keto enough and you'll go from 15 grams of carbs to 12 and wonder why it's still not working and then you'll be stuck there and fasting is the same way. If you fast heavy every single day, it might not be the best idea. Fasting in moderation and learning how to have less stress and more energy during a fast is sufficient." - Dave Asprey   Building A Stronger Mindset   "In Fast This Way, I found this study that 15% of the average person's thoughts are about food every single day. So, if you turn off your hunger - Wow! You just got 15% more of your thoughts back. If that's just our thoughts on food, then it's a lot more for our fearful thoughts. Is it half your thoughts? Are two-thirds of your thoughts about the fear-running thoughts, inner critic, and angry voices in your head? If most of your thoughts are hunger and fear, there's just a little bit left for personal development and self-improvement." - Dave Asprey     Cravings vs Hunger     "From a somatic perspective, understand that there are two different states people have mixed up around hunger. One of them is cravings and the other is actual hunger. Most people only have cravings and they never get to feel hunger. A craving is, 'If I don't eat soon, I'm going to die;' you have to have it and it's an intense feeling. Cravings can be caused biologically when you eat certain foods; in fact many or most cravings are caused by eating the wrong stuff.

One pragmatic practice is to separate out the worry from the thinking. Fear plus uncertainty equals anxiety but uncertainty can also move us into a growth mindset. When there's a lot of uncertainty and we're really feeling down on our luck or really stressed out because of our finances; in those moments when we're really worried, take a deep breath, step back and ask yourself if this worrying is helping? Because worrying makes our thinking brain go offline. What do we need to help us move forward? We need our thinking brain. - Dr. Jud Brewer   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 388 Internationally known expert in mindfulness training for treating addictions, Executive Medical Director of Behavioral Health at Sharecare, and Author of his latest book, Unwinding Anxiety, Dr. Jud Brewer, returns to explain how worry and anxiety become habits, why we become addicted to stress, and practical strategies to navigate uncertainty.   What do we do with our anxiety?

In addition to reward based learning it has another trick up his sleeve. It takes what it learns and moves the learning into muscle memory as soon as it can. In other words, our brains are set up to form habits so we can free up brain space to learn new things."  - Unwinding Anxiety by Dr. Jud Brewer   Why Worry Can Be A Powerful Teacher "Inevitably life goes on and things are constantly changing and we have no control over the future. So, those feelings of uncertainty and wondering when the shoe is going to drop have been described as ways that make us feel like we're in control because at least we're doing something about it by worrying. However, worrying doesn't help and it actually makes our brain work less well. Try to see anything that isn't going well or isn't perfect as a learning experience. When your anxiety comes back up, what can you learn from it? If you lean into your hardships and challenges to get something out of them, they can actually be quite rewarding in the sense that you've grown and become more resilient." - Dr. Jud Brewer     Moving Into A Growth Mindset "What do we need to do in today's age? We need to be able to think beyond our narrow sense because the world has changed a lot. It has had this seismic shift that's never going to go back and we don't even know what that's going to look like. So, ask yourself, what I am I getting from worrying? See if you can step out of the worry and lean into that challenge. I'm not saying this is easy but I'm saying this is what we can do, right? Lean into this and ask yourself how you can move into your growth mindset and what's possible for you right now."  - Dr. Jud Brewer     Links From Today's Show    Belcampo breathwork.io Unwinding Anxiety by Dr. Jud Brewer 319 Dr. Jud Brewer The Craving Mind by Dr. Jud Brewer Eat Right Now app Craving To Quit Sharecare Mind Science 129 Gretchen Rubin Eric Kandel Carol Dweck Michael Pollan Loving kindness meditation guided by Dr. Jud Brewer How to use kindness to create connection during crisis Dr. Jud Brewer on using mindfulness to ease worry and anxiety 'Habit Loops & Everyday Addictions' 'Tame Your Feelings of Anxiety' TED Talk | A simple way to break a bad habit | Judson Brewer Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Dr. Jud Brewer Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube   About Dr. Jud Brewer Dr. Jud is the Executive Medical Director of Behavioral Health at Sharecare, Director of Research and Innovation at the Mindfulness Center, and associate professor in psychiatry at the School of Medicine at Brown University, as well as a research affiliate at MIT.

We are not our ruptures. We are the loving awareness that the rupture is existing within and when we can tap into our spacious awareness and view the rupture through our loving hearts, it transcends it, it shifts it, it helps it amalgamate, and move the timeline from this rupture that's three years old that's angry at the world into this adult who knows better. - Samantha Skelly   Wellness Force Radio Episode 387 Creator of Pause Breathwork, Host of The Sam Skelly Show, and Founder of Hungry for Happiness, Samantha Skelly, shares how you can access somatic healing and reclaim your inner peace with breathwork, her philosophy that "you are the medicine," how to deprogram your childhood, and her mission to disintegrate the dependency model.

To me, an actual broken heart is a closed heart. An actual broken heart is one that isn't willing to open up again; it is protective, guarded, and walled which can be important for the healing aspect. If you don't have boundaries, if you've been walked on, if you've experienced trauma abuse, there actually is an important boundary that is the complete individualization of self that doesn't allow in anything as you repair. Then you build up some level of confidence, a relationship with self, and a capacity for self through different modalities such as therapy but then you gently walk back into the world protecting and preserving that wholeness. - Mark Groves   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 386 Human Connection Specialist, Creator of the Become Boundaries Badass course, Podcast Host, and Co-Founder of the Do You Mine'd emotional network, Mark Groves, returns to share his own relationship transformations, how to heal from heartbreak, why love can hurt so much, how to navigate through pain and sadness as well as practical tools to help us take ownership within ourselves and our surroundings when relationships end.   How do we create more love for ourselves, friends and family, and the collective world we live in right now?     Join Josh and Mark as they explore what love actually is, why breakups are not failures and the awakening humanity is experiencing in 2021.     Become A Boundaries Badass!

The fact that it’s not a relationship if you or your partner feel like they’re a problem or that they’re broken. Why letting go of the relationship was the lesson that they both needed to learn and be able to grow on their own.   [54:30] Breakups Are Not Failures Breaking down why the end of a relationship should not be seen as a failure. Why the end of a relationship can actually be expansive and evidence of humanity growing. The fact that it’s wrong to shame people who are divorced or have ended a relationship. All of the pressure and judgment that he felt when he broke off his past engagement to another woman and how that sparked the work he is doing now.

Frances Weller breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show Healed People Heal People   "Our own journey to healing, responsibility, and self is what heals the world. If you go within yourself, you become a leader, and you step fully into yourself then you are hereby a beacon of model behavior for other people. There's a saying that 'hurt people hurt people,' but also 'healed people heal people." - Mark Groves   The Child Can Rest, The Adult Is Here "I had this beautiful meditation where I was like, 'The child can rest. The adult is here." I had reached this completion of this initiatory process of really becoming an adult and not letting the kid in me, who wanted to people please and was afraid of being laughed at or not acknowledged, get to me. I realized that those fears were not going to run my life or my relationships or anymore in how I communicate with others." - Mark Groves   Healthy Feedback In Relationships   "Some people say there's no such thing as healthy shame but I actually disagree. When you learn that a better behavior is available to you, you're going to experience healthy shame. Toxic shame is 'something is wrong with you.' Behavior is important but it's not attached to your worth so if you can allow yourself to open up to feedback from your partners and friends, you can begin to look at how you can be better. I see everything that my partner sees in me as an opportunity to improve as a human being and as a man." - Mark Groves     Links From Today's Show  Organifi Cured Nutrition Become a Boundaries Badass Do You Mine'd Create The Love 302 Mark Groves Relationships 101 Course with Mark Groves Mark Groves Podcast Paul Chek Rachel Fiori 333 Dr. Kelly Brogan Mark Groves Podcast: Dr. Kelly Brogan - End The War Against Yourself 096 Daniel Schmachtenberger Gangaji Carl Jung Ram Dass Heal Documentary Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert B.

Apollo Neuro uses sound waves that are composed for the touch receptors of our skin rather than for our ears. There's a component of music that's in the lower frequency range that is somewhere between 10 and 200 hertz which is about what comes out of your subwoofer that is more easily felt through our skin than heard through our ears. There are certain patterns of sound that when delivered to the skin, you can relatively reliably nudge the body and the mind into sync, flow, and goal states more effectively. Certain patterns of sound make us more energized and others calmer shifting our energy and mood. - Dr. David Rabin   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 385 Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Apollo Neuroscience as well as the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Board of Medicine, Dr. David Rabin, shares how the Apollo Neuro device uses sound waves to improve mental health, his practice of using breathwork and plant medicines in his clinical experience, and what steps you can take to restore your internal locus of control.   How can you become more resilient?

How mental health training for physicians has changed over the years and why people believed that physical and mental health were not connected. BJ Fogg Charles Duhigg Exploring the internal locus of control when it comes to letting go of unhealthy stress. How the worlds of breathwork, clinical experience, and the Apollo Neuro device have been combined for a nexus of healing. Diving deep into the question of, "Why do some of us find it easy to overcome stress when others do not?" The power of breathwork as the most fundamental skill to restore a sense of control. How gratitude works hand in hand with breathwork to help us calm down, be present, and restore our locus of control.   [15:30] Best Practices For Healing Chronic Mental Health Dr. Gabor Maté The fact that according to Dr. Gabor Maté, addiction is really the opposite of human connection. Exploring the little 't' and capitalized 'T' trauma of PTSD especially for war veterans. The Apollo Neuro device and how it can help those with PTSD. His work helping veterans with PTSD and studying how humans cope with chronic stress. Why people with low heart rate variability find it difficult to heal their PTSD, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, or insomnia with a western medicine treatment plan. The fact that 30-50% of people don't respond to a western medicine treatment for their chronic mental health condition. Why plant medicine is not for everyone but if you want to try it, you should do research to ensure it's done in a safe environment with a certified shaman. Unpacking why prescription medicines have their purpose but they are not for everyone as they do come with risk. Why a safe, trusting relationship with a therapist, psychiatrist, doctor, or caregiver is the most important thing for your healing journey. His experience in being trained in ketamine and MDMA assisted psychotherapy and the importance of the patient being in a safe mindset to have an optimal experience. Why there is no 'one-size-fits-all' approach to healing the mind.   [21:30] Navigating The Human Mind The fact that most substances that people self-medicate with to activate their serotonin, dopamine, endocannabinoid, endorphin, and opioid systems can also be activated with the sense of touch. Apollo Neuro's origin story and how the device is helping people heal their minds. How Apollo Neuro can help the user feel safe in an environment that was perceived as being threatening in the past. Why the brain is designed to react the same way to even very different threats when it does not feel safe. Eric Kandel The one thing that traumatizes almost every single person on this planet: when we go to a person that we respect and share that we are feeling sad, anxious, confused, or frustrated and they tell us something similar to: "You shouldn't feel that way. You shouldn't express yourself that way; anger is not appropriate." Why it is dangerous to teach someone that they need to suppress their emotions. How you can learn to acknowledge and feel your own emotions without judgment. 201 Dr. Michael Gervais   [33:00] Building Resilience Against Disease Through Balance The design behind Apollo Neuro and why it's actually a sound wave device. His musical background and why different types of music have various effects on the human brain. How music frequency can actually align the body and mind. What it means to be centered for greater health. Why balance is actually resilience against disease, stress, and illness. The top cause for imbalance: focusing too much on things that we don't have control over. Letting Go by David R. Hawkins Differences between toning and activating the vagus nerve through the left ear vs through the Apollo Neuro device which does the work for you in incredible stressful moments. Why Apollo Neuro users are discovering more benefits the more often they use the device. How Apollo Neuro trains the user how to identify actual threats vs perceived threats. Kevin Kelly Pink Socks breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show   Achieving Greater Wellness Through Balance "Unlocking greater wellness is about achieving balance. It's not about achieving one extreme or another; we're constantly bouncing back and forth between extremes. It's about finding balance and balance is resilience. Balance is homeostasis; it's the ability to not just mentally, emotionally, and spiritually bounce back from stress quickly but it's the ability to physically have our bodies recover and come back quickly from stress over and over again while also maintaining and sustaining an incredibly high level of peak performance which is achievable." - Dr. David Rabin   How Apollo Neuro Works With Your Stress "With the Apollo Neuro device, it doesn't require you to actively do anything like breathwork, rubbing the ears, putting pressure on the chest, or soothing touch to activate the vagus nerve. All of those activities work but if you've never been trained to use those techniques under stress or at all, then they are incredibly challenging to master and especially if you've never practiced them; sometimes they can take hundreds or thousands of hours for people to master them well enough to use under stress. We've designed Apollo Neuro for people like myself who never learned breathwork, how to meditate, or any of these self-soothing techniques as a kid. Apollo Neuro can show you what it's like to activate your body's natural calming system and once you feel it, it's easier to learn how to do it on your own." - Dr. David Rabin   Wellness Is Our Free Will "Wellness is recognizing our true free will which also includes 'free won't.' It's the opportunity to make a decision at any moment of what we choose to allow in. If we choose love, our lives will be filled with love in the moments we choose it. If we choose fear, our lives will be filled with fear in the moments we choose it. It's literally that simple. So, wellness in its simplest and most actionable form is just recognizing that we have this choice and making the conscious decision that we all have the power to choose love in every moment that we can." - Dr. David Rabin   Links From Today's Show  Organifi Board of Medicine BJ Fogg Charles Duhigg Dr. Gabor Maté Eric Kandel 201 Dr. Michael Gervais Letting Go by David R.

The whole secret sauce of Farmer's Footprint is going to be to tell the narrative of healing at every level. We cannot extract the human health story from the planetary story anymore. It's so intermixed; you literally cannot create human health if we don't solve these agricultural systemic issues. In the same way, we can't solve the agricultural problems unless we come to understand the value of human life and start to reallocate the valuation of food correctly. It's really a failure to understand the value of life that's leading to the human behaviors that are driving the agricultural decisions that we're making. - Zach Bush MD   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 362 Triple board-certified physician, Founder and CEO of ION*Biome, Zach Bush MD, returns to share how his company, Farmer's Footprint, is reuniting us with the soil for greater human health, how they're creating greater independence for farmers across the world, the connection between seeds and soil health plus how a strong immune system can combat disease, prevent rapid aging, and keep your body charged to heal faster.   How can you become a soil health advocate to help heal Mother Nature and save humanity?     Discover the real agriculture revolution and incredible resurgence in both health and vitality that is happening right now with Farmer's Footprint.      ION*Biome Gut Health *Get 15% off of your ION*Biome order with the code JOSH1KS  ION*Gut Health is a gut-strengthening, brain-boosting mineral supplement sourced from 60-million-year-old soil that naturally supports microbiome balance.

How 6-10 powerful companies are creating the whole paradigm of western medicine and agriculture. Breaking down the incredible co-dependence of decline in human biology as chemical companies continue to make products that make us sicker and sicker every year. Why the increase in side effects and mortality are becoming more and more common for all the pharmaceutical drugs. The impact of a strong vs weak immune system to combat disease, prevent rapid aging, and how to keep your body charged and heal faster. How he applies the same approach of helping the human body heal to aiding farmers grow healthy crops by removing weeds and harmful pesticides. How regenerative organic farming speeds up the vitality of the crops. Why the increase in CO2 in our atmosphere is from our topsoils dying, not greenhouse gases as they are clearing out every year in a natural cycle.   [16:00] How We Can Help Mother Nature & Humanity Heal What steps we can start taking moving forward as a community to help Mother Nature and humanity heal. The origin story of Farmer's Footprint and Dr. Zach's involvement with it from Day One up to now in 2020. How Farmer's Footprint first set out to tell a story of the human health crisis and better understand the relationship between common household pesticides like Roundup and the decline of our wellbeing. The devastating accumulation of pesticides that traveled through the Mississippi River creating Cancer Alley between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. How Farmer's Footprint helped to reverse the effects of pesticides and lower the cancer rates in the southern USA within a 10 year period. What steps they took to discover the connection between gut health, soil, and pesticides in their model of cancer. The moment that changed his understanding of the soil's cycle and the Farmer's Footprint mission moving forward.   [21:00] A Real Agricultural Revolution Why falling into the "anti-trap" and saying that the old narratives are wrong isn't helping us move forward and change as a society. What made Dr. Zach and Farmer's Footprint realize that they can't just be anti-glyphosate and anti-Roundup but they need to imagine a new future with decentralization as their focus. Explaining why decentralization should be the focus of every industry from the government to hospitals to nutrition to pharmaceuticals. Unpacking how nature is consistently proving the power of decentralizing life and what we can learn about it from a single cubic centimeter of soil. Earl Butz How Farmer's Footprint is creating a real agricultural revolution through human relationships. David Leon The secret sauce of the Farmer's Footprint to tell the narrative of healing at every level. Exploring the question, 'How can we be creating such a horrible environment for children at school if they are so important for humanity's future?' How we are failing to see the value of human life as we feed children Grade D meat at school. The relentless journey of being a farmer and how Farmer's Footprint is here to support them each week.   [30:30] How You Can Become A Soil Health Advocate Kiss The Ground Josh Tickell Soil Health Advocate Training - Kiss The Ground What positive changes you can start making by becoming a soil health advocate in your community. The power in farmers helping each other and how that is still present today in 70% of the world that is still being fed by peasant farming communities. How the US farming community has lost its identity as we moved forward into chemical agriculture, forced isolation, intense competition, and system of co-dependence with banks and USDA crop insurance. The future that Farmer's Footprint envisions with farmers no longer fighting for dominant success but working together. His hope that we will create highly diverse soil that will help feed the gut microbiome so that we may no longer need to rely on supplements.   [36:00] The Future Of Business In A Supportive Ecosystem What he envisions for the future of business and how brands can work together in a supportive ecosystem. Why the future CEOs of the world will see themselves as a resource manager across ideas rather than a product developer. His invitation to all companies to think more about acting as a GE by putting old capital into new and innovative spaces all over the place. The benefits of planting biodiverse plants not just on farms but also on our own lawns and playgrounds for our children, their health, and humanity's future. Project Biome Exploring the various soil, water, and air projects that Farmer's Footprint's parent non-profit, Project Biome, is developing right now. Why our natural energy sectors could be our greatest gift to the planet if we start focusing on improving them even more.   [41:00] Seeds Have All The Magic Exploring what first steps we can take to eating healthier and creating a better world including growing a garden. The power of history repeating itself as the US went out and bought every last seed in the stores to grow their own gardens during COVID-19 very much like the Victory Gardens that were grown after World War II. How our independence is a product of our resilience during difficult moments. The ideal garden we should be creating in our backyards and why it shouldn't be perfect. Why you should have low expectations when you start growing your own garden and don't call yourself a failure because you're already helping the planet win. What makes a farmer great including one that allows Mother Nature to do her work and doesn't get in the way of it.   [46:00] Embracing The Journey To Helping Farmers How Farmer's Footprint is helping farmers with whatever point they are at along their life journey. Their roles as bridge builders as they work on finding out what direction they want to go in for the best possible outcome with corporations and investors. How the COVID-19 pandemic has actually helped accelerate their mission dramatically as philanthropic investments are aiding the country. What COVID-19 has done for Farmer's Footprint's mission including pointing out hot spots that need immediate help to bring communities healthier soil, water, and air; plus build a decentralized system that can serve those areas simultaneously. How, as a parent, he is inspiring his children to leave the world a better place than how they found it and what they in return are teaching him about life and the world. What problems younger generations are seeing in the world from their point of view, how they believe they can fix it, and how we can support them. Why young generations are prone to depression and becoming unproductive if we fit them into the old paradigm and tell them they are failing at their goals. The similar approach to parenting like gardening: let the children be who they want to be and allow them to face the obstacles they want to overcome. Farmer's Footprint Screening Toolkit Non-Toxic Neighborhoods Playbook - Farmer's Footprint breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show How We Are Failing One Another   "We are failing to see the value of human life and so we behave as we do. So, of course, all of our mistakes are coming out of the failure of that Golden Rule. If we really loved ourselves then we would treat our neighbors so much more differently. Sadly, whether farmer, physician, patient, chemical company CEO or commodities and crop owner, we're not loving ourselves and so in the end, FarmersFootprint.us is a story about us. It's a story about if we don't start looking at each other's eyes and acknowledging the miracle of life that's within each of us, then we're going to keep making mistakes. There's no scientist that's going to prove our way out of this; it is a fault of valuation and that valuation isn't of a crop or of a soil - it's of the human standing on that soil." - Zach Bush MD   If Children's Health Is So Important...   "If children's health is so important, then why does school food look like school food? If children are important than why does their school look like it does; why does it look like a jail so much of the time? Why do we sequester them away from nature 8 hours a day instead of putting them in nature 8 hours a day? If children are really valuable souls in exquisitely miraculous bodies, why would anybody give them a Coke? Why would anybody hand them a high-fructose corn syrup-laden anything? Why would anybody put them in an environment where they can't connect to the fresh air but one with mold and old HVAC systems and then traffic them Grade D meat that's dying at the time of harvest?" - Zach Bush MD     Solving The Crisis For Human & Planetary Health "If your farm is inundated with weeds and pests, then it's because your rate of repair within that plant system has dissolved, the biophotonic energy within your soil has been depleted but if we regenerate the biophotonic energy within the soil i.e. the relationship between the sun, soil, and plant, with resilience and energy, then we're going to get to this point of extraordinary explosive delivery of health and vitality. The soil will become so vibrant that the plants that grow in it are so resistant to any problems and the weeds that have been terrorizing for two generations are gone within a single season because you've created a biodiverse, biophotonic energy within that soil system. When we talk about organic vs regenerative organic, what we're really looking at is the vitality of life between sun and soil and how can you integrate carbon cycling at all of those levels to speed up the vitality of life within that system. If you do that, not only do you solve for human health crisis but also planetary health crisis." - Zach Bush MD     Links From Today's Show  345 Zach Bush MD ION*Biome 60% Of All The World’s Seed Sales Are Owned By Four Giant Companies Unfortunate Developments In Chemical Food Earl Butz David Leon Kiss The Ground Josh Tickell Soil Health Advocate Training - Kiss The Ground Project Biome Farmer's Footprint Screening Toolkit Non-Toxic Neighborhoods Playbook - Farmer's Footprint Cured Nutrition Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Farmer's Footprint Facebook Instagram Dr. Zach Bush Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube   About Zach Bush MD Zach Bush MD is a physician specializing in internal medicine, endocrinology, and hospice care.

"A study on low-income families showed that just the simple act of eating together with your children for just four meals a week, and it could've been any meal, dramatically protected kids against obesity and disordered eating. These are protective measures that were stimulated and created simply by eating together as a family. Things like this are not being talked about enough in the conversation of food, calorie management, and trying to be healthy.

Why you are the star of your own story and you get to write who you're going to be during your lifetime. breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show   Do You Have Poor Food Habits?   "We might be under the illusion that we're making choices of what we eat on our own free will but if you research, it clearly shows and indicates that what you eat is heavily influenced by how you eat and more interesting with whom you're eating."  - Shawn Stevenson in Eat Smarter   Find Your Wellness Tribe   "Get yourself around good people. Immerse yourself in what Michael Beckwith would call a beloved community of people that support your greatness. It doesn't mean that they cater to you and they tell you that everything is going to be okay all the time. It's more so they create a space for you to grow while giving you some insight and advice but they also challenge you and make you think differently. Get yourself in a community of good people and make that a priority." - Shawn Stevenson   Good Health Is Contagious     "As you grow, then you will start to become a light and source of inspiration for other people and that's what paying it forward really means. There is solid data that health is contagious. A positive frame of mind and solution-oriented thinking and success are all contagious as well. Today, more than ever, you have the power to do your own research, tap in, and learn how to feed your spirit. Make it a mandate to do that every day. Get a positive perimeter set up to simply remind you of your greatness." - Shawn Stevenson     Links From Today's Show  Organifi Eat Smarter by Shawn Stevenson The Model Health Show Can A Mask Really Keep Us Safe? | Shawn Stevenson Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson Dr. Oz Interview - Waist Management, Appetite Control, & Heart-Healthy Foods Discover Your Love Language - The 5 Love Languages Harvard EdCast: The Benefit of Family Mealtime 357 Robb Wolf Elevated BMI Is Associated With Decreased Blood Flow in the Prefrontal Cortex Using SPECT Imaging in Healthy Adults Michael Pollan TMHS 207: Reset Your Genes & Become Younger with Dr. Sara Gottfried Michael Beckwith TMHS 216: Evening Routines that Enhance Sleep, Accelerate Fat Loss & Supercharge Your Brain Sleep Smarter | Shawn Stevenson | Talks at Google TMHS 58: How the Work You Do Impacts Your Health & Happiness with John Lee Dumas TEDxSinCity - Shawn Stevenson - How Chocolate Can Save The World Your Reason Why Needs To Be Bigger Than Yourself Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Shawn Stevenson YouTube Twitter Facebook Instagram   About Shawn Stevenson Shawn Stevenson is one of the most inspirational humans in the health and wellness world.

Self-love and loving yourself is not a light switch. You can't wake up one morning and go, 'I'm going to love myself today!' You can still try and do that if you want but old programs and subconscious thoughts in the universe are going to bring you contrast and challenge that belief at all times. That's why the beliefs that aren't challenged are the beliefs that never change. - Josh Trent   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 383 In this episode, Wellness Force Media Founder and Podcast Host, Josh Trent, is being interviewed by Shanna and Nicole of the NoBS Wellness Podcast.

Carl Jung The negative emotions of anger, fear, despair, self-hatred is being spread amongst the collective unconscious.

Paul Chek | All Is God: Three Part Series The fact that self-love has to be a daily practice of surrender and awareness. Why self-love may not be easy, but it's very simple. Why a monstrosity of a challenge can actually be the Universe forcing you to grow or forcing you to retract. Unpacking why self-love is actually your own choice that is there for you when you are ready.

How to defeat evil by focusing on the good instead of feeding it with constant negative thoughts and emotions. Civilized Caveman M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community   Power Quotes From The Show Self-Love Is A Choice   "Self-love is a practice and a choice. Self-love is not something that we can just get inspired to do one day. We can get inspired to start it but it's not a quick switch. The one thing that no one is doing is owning their shit. You have to own it and love it just like you love your partner, your parent, or your sibling. What I've discovered after years of work on this and training is that unless I'm truly living in my body and comfortable in it, no other form of love or healing will come to me. I love where I live in my body because it's all that I have; our bodies are all that any of us actually have." - Josh Trent   Breath Will Lead You To Awareness   "The breath is the only thing that we can be in communion with and we can control. There's nothing in this world that we can be in communion with and control like the breath. We can't beat our own heart, we can't digest our own food; we just can't. We can control what thoughts we indulge in and we can control how we breathe - that's it. If we can breathe then we can choose but if we can't choose then we're probably not breathing. If we're not breathing right then we're a slave to our emotions and then we're a slave to the people that dangle the puppeteer strings in our society but the breath will lead us to awareness." - Josh Trent   The Wellness Journey On Your Terms     "The self-love quotient is a daily practice of surrender and awareness. That sounds super-advanced but it's not; actually, it's really simple but again, it's not easy. The reason why daily practice and awareness are so challenging is because life is very complex and complicated. We might have our whole healing modality planned out for three quarters and have everything listed on a paper and how we're going to heal and love ourselves and then your kid throws up on your lap or your son gets in an accident or you lose a job. Anytime I've ever had a monstrosity of challenge, it's the universe forcing me to grow or retract and there's no shame in that either. You make the change to love yourself in a daily practice of surrender and awareness because you're ready; not when I or anyone else says you're ready." - Josh Trent     Links From Today's Show    BREATHE: Breath and Wellness Program Cured Nutrition NoBS Wellness Podcast | Episode 51: Self-Love is A Practice & A Choice 032 Gay Hendricks Alan Watts David R.

When I say, 'Do your inner work,' it's in real life and real-time but it's also taking responsibility for your sovereignty. Have a disciplined breath practice in the morning or maybe have a reflective practice at the end of the day to sit with yourself for ten minutes in stillness and silence to think about it. Ask yourself, 'What could I have done better?', 'Could I have treated people differently?', 'How did I speak to myself today?', and pause so that the likelihood of that playing out in real-time when you’re in a more reactive state is going to be higher. - Stefanos Sifandos   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 382 Relational Alchemist, International Speaker and Author, Stefanos Sifandos, returns to explain what all men face on their road to becoming a great man, what happens to our psyche and self-worth if we're focused on comparison, why we go back to old patterns, and how you can be friends with your ego.   What actually is inner work and what does it mean to be a good man?      Join us as Stefanos unpacks the 5 Tactical Virtues for Men: Strength, Courage, Mastery, Honor, and Connectivity.   ORGANIFI: Easy Organic Superfood   Get 20% off of your order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at organifi.com/WELLNESSFORCE   Start the day off right.

We need to take responsibility for ourselves because the moment we say it’s someone else’s responsibility or we blame someone for something like not feeling a particular way or experiencing life in the way that we want to experience life, we disempower ourselves and we give our power away. That does either one of two things; we either retract from the world or we lash out in the world." - Stefanos Sifandos   Navigating The Shadow Way   "The shadow way is about intimacy and relationships. It’s about how you give and receive love. It’s about whether you’re allowing people in and surrendering to that or you are too scared of love because you’re afraid of loss." - Stefanos Sifandos   Do Something That Scares You Every Day     "Do something that scares you every day and I'm not suggesting you go put your life at risk but at what point do you draw the line? We're all going to have to move through different fears and thresholds; some of which are higher than others. I call it the elastic band effect. Your elastic band or tolerance might be longer or shorter in some areas compared to how it is for other people but eventually it will snap. So you want to bring yourself to the place right before it snaps because that's your edge and then peak over. If you have a deep fear of physical contact, for example, that's a great opportunity for you to look into that and what it actually means." - Stefanos Sifandos     Links From Today's Show    The Conscious Warrior Reclaim Your Kingdom Chaos To Clarity Be The Queen Energy Healing Program Conscious Mentorship with Stefanos Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Stefanos Sifandos Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube TikTok LinkedIn Pinterest   About Stefanos Sifandos Stefanos Sifandos has been immersed in deep men’s empowerment work and the exploration of intimate and sacred relationships.

How I approach the world? How I relate to the world? How I connect to the world? If the answer is, 'no,' then I just keep trying because that's my ultimate goal. That's the beauty of the world of health and wellness. There is 'mastery' but it can never be mastered because it's always changing." - Aleks Rybchinskiy   How Inner Work Helps Parents Raise Children   "Children are their own separate entities that parents are in charge of until they grow up and hopefully you're guiding them properly so they can relate to the world, contribute to the world, feel happiness, and know how to process their anger and sadness. For me, I've had to take a really hard look at myself to know where I need help so that I can show my children how it's done. Kids don't listen to what you say, they watch what you do and then do that." - Aleks Rybchinskiy     Links From Today's Show  CURED Nutrition Organifi Primal Fusion Programs at Primal Fusion CHEK Institute 268 Sara Gustafson Living 4D Podcast – Sara Gustafson and Aleks Rybchinskiy: The Journey of Relationship EmBodhiment of We Webinar: Relationship Management Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Aleks Rybchinskiy Facebook Instagram YouTube Twitter   About Aleks Rybchinskiy Aleks is a Master CHEK Practitioner and Holistic Therapist with over ten years in the field.

They have multiple comorbidities and chronic conditions that can be ameliorated and helped with diet and lifestyle change but this has not been part of the narrative which has been really frustrating. So, of course, the government and organizations have been saying that their approach has been all about health and 'staying safe' yet there's really no proactive, preventative measures being communicated from 'the powers that be.' Guidelines from these organization that explain how to support our health from breathwork to optimizing sleep to losing weight to exercise to stress management - none of those things have been prioritized by pretty much anyone until the World Health Organization finally came out to share the data on this in September 2020 that I've been talking about since March 2020." - Mike Mutzel     Why Lockdowns Are Bad For Your Health   "On the individual level, I really think that the biggest unintended harm that we're doing to ourselves is social isolation. We know that social isolation's impact on our health is on par with smoking. I see a lot of depression amongst my clients that is reverberating and causing deleterious health outcomes from weight gain to diabetes. We are tribal creatures and lockdowns are not good for your blood sugar and what is paradoxical is that they are making people more susceptible to severe outcomes. This 'treatment' is increasing the probability that when people are exposed, they're going to suffer more severely from the disease that we're trying to prevent them from getting." - Mike Mutzel      Enough With The Fear-Mongering     "Enough with all of the fear-mongering; we need to empower people because fear-mongering just makes you more controllable and it doesn't empower you to make more intentional decisions about how to improve your health. So, we need to help people shift their attention and realize that they have to start taking care of their health. Start exercising and if you're afraid of being around people - take off your mask and go for a walk. The risk of outdoor exposure transmission is really low. We need to do things to help empower people and wake them up. I feel that the people that are the most scared and the most convinced that they're just going to die from this virus if they ever get exposed to it are the very people that are not meditating or doing any spiritual type of work; they're just believing in what this authoritarian state is telling them to do. The more intentional people can be about their health, the less fear they're going to feel." - Mike Mutzel     Links From Today's Show  CURED Nutrition 297 Mike Mutzel High Intensity Health Myoxcience Nutrition High Intensity Health Radio Belly Fat Effect High Intensity Health Courses Breath Work as a Stress Reduction Tool w/ Josh Trent The Bearded Nurse & COVID-19 - Media Says You’re Susceptible, Science Says Otherwise The COVID-19 syndemic is not global: context matters Medical Definition of Syndemic Intermittent Fasting: Why Fast Time is More Important Than Length Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Mike Mutzel Facebook Instagram Twitter High Intensity Health YouTube   About Mike Mutzel Mike Mutzel has an B.S. in Biology from Western Washington University and an M.S. in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport.

I'm on a mission to disrupt the fitness industry by leading with empathy first and a better understanding on the mental and emotional side so that people don't view physical transformation as this chore, this punishment that they have to go through because society accepts this belief or this myth that you have to look a certain way to be loved. My hope is that people will wake up and I feel like we can do that by leading with empathy first but empathy with boundaries. - Drew Manning   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 379 Keto Diet Expert, Host of the Fit2Fat2Fit Experience Podcast, and Author of the NY Times Best Selling book, Fit2Fat2Fit, Drew Manning, comes back to share how you can be fit after 40, how he's changing the world of the fitness industry with his Back2Fit weight loss approach, how the three arcs of intelligence can help you sustain a healthy lifestyle, and why hitting rock bottom is actually a blessing.   How can empathy, self-love, and reflection help you let go of the old weight?    Discover why losing weight is not the key to happiness but the other way around.   CURED Nutrition Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE It's taken me over a year to find the right hemp and CBD company to introduce to the Wellness Force Community and I could not be more thrilled that it's CURED Nutrition!

The results take a back seat for a minute so that you can learn to fall in love with the process. You do the process because you actually love yourself and you deserve to feel good and feel healthy. Once you flip that switch, you will see the results because you are living a healthy lifestyle that consistently operates from a place of self-love." - Drew Manning   The Emotional Journey To Physical Transformation   "There's really no better way to take care of yourself than to take care of your physical health but you could do any program, diet, or take any supplement out there. That's not what's going to fix what's going on the inside emotionally, right? I will give you those tools to make physical change happen but the biggest thing that has to happen is that mindset shift. That's where people don't really understand or know how to do that because they look at physical transformation as just physical. And, yes, if you break it down, yes, you eat fewer calories, you work out, and that changes your body but it's so much more of an emotional journey for people and that's what derails them because when doing the process gets too hard then they won't see taking care of their health really worth it. Making that shift in perception is really key so that they don't see living a healthy lifestyle as a punishment or a chore to get results and be happy." - Drew Manning     What True Health Success Looks Like     "The biggest thing that I'm trying to do is shift people's perception of what success looks like in the health and fitness industry because we've been programmed to think that success is this body of an Instagram model or this athlete or that celebrity. It's this focus of getting lean, skinny, and 5% body fat; and that once you get there, once you get that body, then all of your problems will go away and you'll be happy. But if you're not fulfilled on the inside first and foremost, I promise you that once you get the body, you're still going to be missing something." - Drew Manning     Links From Today's Show  Fit2Fat2Fit by Drew Manning 131 Drew Manning: Discipline, Ketosis, & Emotional Fitness 291 Drew Manning: Lessons Learned From Running 100 Miles To Save Children Fit2Fat2Forty Back2Fit 345 Dr. Zach Bush Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown The Nutty Professor Trailer Kathryn Dixon Paul Chek | All Is God: Three Part Series Dr. Gabor Maté Eckhart Tolle Loving What Is: How Four Questions Can Change Your Life by Byron Katie Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Fit2Fat2Fit Facebook YouTube Drew Manning Facebook Instagram Twitter   About Drew Manning Health and fitness expert, Drew Manning, is the New York Times best-selling author of Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose and has for years been a leading voice in the burgeoning Keto Diet movement.

Choosing a Creator Consciousness allows you to begin to see how our society is so built around a consumer society; we have just been conditioned for this behavior.

Notice how that feels in your body. I really commend everybody that's showing up and having the courage to dive into some of these emotions and learn what they can from this inner journey right now because that is actually helping heal the collective and amazing things are going to come from this. The whole world right now is on a path for the Golden Age and in order for that transformation to occur, it's going to be uncomfortable at times and we're all experiencing that in our own way." - Charles Clay   Are Mindset Hacks Overrated? "Think about where your attention is going on a daily basis. Are they really going towards what you want to create; this list of ideas and things that you want to bring to the world before you die? How much energy and time are you giving those? How much time are you spending tuning in to allow more of those to flow in? When we come back to that natural state of inner peace, then we're in a receptive mode where we can receive those dreams, inspiration, and amazing ideas from Mother Gaia. Operating from that place is different from having to use a million mindset hacks to motivate yourself to get your butt off the couch and actually do something. Either way will get you there, I just prefer the inspired action approach simply because the quality of energy that I'm creating with is so much more exciting and fun." - Charles Clay     Intuition Is Medicine   "I always tune into my intuition; it's our own medicine that we are all gifted with. Sometimes it's harder to listen to it than others but with your intuition, you can navigate and notice what comes up on your radar. What you want help with, what you are sick of, and what aspect of your life you're ready to change. Then notice as those answers start showing up like puzzle pieces that start filling in. Next, really tune into the intelligence within your body and what feels intuitively expansive and going to help you on your path or is more constrictive and doesn't feel aligned. Really paying attention to those cues from your body can help steer you to the right guides, coaches, and direction on your journey." - Charles Clay     Links From Today's Show  The Laser Focus Method 263 Charles Clay M Powered Men’s Group Training and Mastermind CURED Nutrition Caroline Myss 368 Bobbi Vogel Marci Lock The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho How Death Opens the Masculine Heart Neurokinetic Therapy Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Charles Clay Facebook Instagram    About Charles Clay Charles Clay is a Men’s Empowerment Coach, Dynamic Speaker, Published Author and Founder of  M Powered Men’s Group Training and Mastermind.

All cattle are grass-fed and spend about 80% of their life on pasture eating forage and grass which is their species-specific diet and helps maximize the nutritional profile of the meat. But then probably 98 to 99% of the cattle are then sent to a feedlot during the last few months of their lives where they're fed predominantly nothing but genetically modified corn and soy. So, the label, ‘grass-fed' isn't lying to you because the cattle are grass-fed but then they leave out the part where it has been grain-finished. A person will trust that label thinking they're buying a nutritionally superior product but most of the time they're not. – Eugene Trufkin   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 377 Owner of Trufkin Athletics, Author of the Anti-Factory Farm Shopping Guide, and CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach Level 3, Eugene Trufkin, explains the food industry's confusion by design strategies, how to make conscious food choices even in a food desert, how to look at food labels especially for grass-fed meat and poultry, and how growing high quality-grown food can actually heal the planet.   Why is it so hard to find healthy food even when you want it?   Discover the real truth of the food industry when it comes to their connection to pharmaceuticals, labels such as "Product of the USA," and their organic certification process.   CURED Nutrition Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE It's taken me over a year to find the right hemp and CBD company to introduce to the Wellness Force Community and I could not be more thrilled that it's CURED Nutrition!

You may even find products in Trader Joe's that are sourced from 5 different countries. They may say, "Product of the USA," but here's the thing with that claim; I can buy carcasses from Mexico, import them into California, cut them up and process them into packaging here and then legally claim them as "Product of the USA" because it's been processed in the USA." - Eugene Trufkin   The Truth About Organic Label Claims   "What organic beef basically means, for the most part, is the product comes from a factory-farmed operation where they feed the cows nothing but organic grains but even that's questionable these days because a lot of it is coming from corrupted brokers from overseas like Ukraine and Turkey. The grain is literally the only difference between just a factory farm operation where they would feed them genetically modified corn and soy. So, even if you buy something with a USDA Organic label claim, although it may be fed with grains, you don't even know if those grains are organic." - Eugene Trufkin       Why Is It So Hard To Eat Healthy?     "My book, Anti-Factory Farm Shopping Guide, is for people who want to make better conscious food choices but the whole point of the book is to show readers just how difficult it has become. I run into people in the holistic health circles who are trying to optimize their health physically and mentally yet you still see them running into these mistakes constantly. People are buying a product, trusting the label or the claims, and just buying it for years and years on end thinking they're getting the maximum nutrition profile from that food group but they're simply not. My research on this started because I just wanted to buy some healthy eggs and it was incredibly impossible just to find something so simple and basic." - Eugene Trufkin   Links From Today's Show  CURED Nutrition Trufkin Athletics Anti-Factory Farm Shopping Guide CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach Paul Chek | All Is God: Three Part Serie NUTRITION: The Dirt Facts -MUST KNOW INFORMATION!

When you look at movement via energy centers in the body, you're not only utilizing it to create awareness but also breath, pumping, and to get stagnant energy to move. When we're sitting down all day, especially if your posture is poor, you're physically and emotionally going to be more likely to be stagnant. Any exercise is medicine and with more or less good technique, there's really no bad exercise; there's only wrongly prescribed exercise. If you understand some movement principles, any movement can be an energizing activity. - Mike Salemi   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST* Wellness Force Radio Episode 376 World-Renowned Human Performance Presenter, Division 1 Strength & Conditioning Coach, Kambo Facilitator, and Creator of the digital Kettlebell Lifestyle program, Mike Salemi, unpacks the concept of movement as medicine, how to cultivate body awareness, his advice for starting a brand new fitness program, and how our physical health impacts our emotional, spiritual, and mental wellbeing.   Get 15% off of Kettlebell Lifestyle with the code“WELLNESSFORCE” at wellnessforce.com/KETTLEBELL   How can cultivating movement awareness help us heal?   Listen as Mike shares why movement is medicine, the power of trusting the wellness journey, and how breathwork strengthens both the mind and body.   CURED Nutrition Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE It's taken me over a year to find the right hemp and CBD company to introduce to the Wellness Force Community and I could not be more thrilled that it's CURED Nutrition!

So, every single morning there's a new routine you do that's under 10 minutes long that incorporates what I call core temperature warm-ups to prepare the body and then we move directly to a few mobility exercises primarily focused on the spine. For me, the spine is a priority over everything when it comes to training. Then from there, we do typically two to four breathing exercises and you're done. Depending on where you are at in your wellness journey just doing the 10 minute morning routine changes the game for some people."  - Mike Salemi   Why Awareness Is The No. 1 Catalyst For Change   "A kettlebell swing is not by any means the first place I would start someone. So often times I have to tell someone to focus on where they are at and re-establish from there with good positioning. Honestly, the number one thing as it relates to coaching movement in the gym and outside are micro movements. Micro movements create macro movements. The ability to just make these small fine attunements in awareness is the biggest thing in and out of the gym that is going to create the prerequisites for change." - Mike Salemi   How Emotion Impacts The Physical Body     "Just how someone is feeling will impact their posture. Honestly, there may be no amount of rows or static wall leans for the neck posture if you're not dealing with some of the things in your life or are not aware of them and what are closing down your heart center. It's going to be hard to open up or at least maintain that position when you're unconscious. Looking at the emotional components, from there it's about opening up what's in the front of the body and starting to strengthen from an endurance perspective everything that's on the body." - Mike Salemi   Links From Today's Show  274 Mike Salemi Kettlebell Lifestyle Paul Chek | All Is God: Three Part Series 086 Mark Divine 358 Dr. Belisa Vranich Soltara Healing Center Ayahuasca Retreats In Costa Rica 212 Conner Moore Master The Kettlebell 306 Dr. Nick Berry Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg Mckeown Kettlebell Lifestyles Master group Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Mike Salemi Facebook Instagram YouTube  Twitter   About Mike Salemi Mike Salemi specializes in human performance and is a sought after international presenter in the field of health and fitness.   Mike has a diverse background in strength and conditioning and has competed over the course of 15+ years at an elite level in Powerlifting and Kettlebell Sport.

When your intuition is actually at odds with or goes against your current belief system, that's a really great checkpoint. Intuition should be completely free and removed from any of your beliefs, patterns, and perception of what you're even seeing. Instinct is more aligned with that emotional response with survival. Going with your gut is that survival instinct. Instinct, to me, has a much more specific architecture than intuition which doesn't really follow any set structure.  - Bizzie Gold   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 375 Founder of The Break Method, Author of The Self Study workbook, and Host of The Modern Good Podcast, Bizzie Gold, explains how to break free from the puppet masters, the real root of rewiring the subconscious mind, how we can build the world we want to live in, and how to work with your triggers so that you come from a place of love and not fear.   Get 15% off of The Break Method and any of Bizzie's other courses at wellnessforce.com/BIZZIE and with the code WELLNESS15.   How can you tell when it's time to tap into your intuition or instinct?     Discover why intuition and instinct are not the same, how to not get stuck in your thought loops, and the permission slip you can give yourself to let go of that war.   ION*Biome Gut Health *Get 15% off of your ION*Biome order with the code JOSH1KS  ION*Gut Health is a gut-strengthening, brain-boosting mineral supplement sourced from 60-million-year-old soil that naturally supports microbiome balance.

When we look out at the macro vs. micro-scale, the macro scale is really capitalizing on our brain's survival instinct right now. Our brain is going to learn all of its pattern of survival really in early childhood and we're then going to see the world, experience, and consume information really only from that pattern until we've done something to intentionally rewire the pattern. Even for the people who feel like they've done a lot of "work," that work doesn't follow a structure or actually navigate from awareness all the way through to action and then rewiring. They find awareness of certain things but there isn't actually a strategy to biologically repair those patterns. I know healing for a lot of people wants to feel like this fluid, timeless very yin type of energy but that's not actually how the brain needs to be rewired." - Bizzie Gold   Breaking False Beliefs & Patterns   "When you learn how to essentially cut out the bullshit from your own story, you start to realize that the way your brain pattern wants you to perceive information is not only not objectively true but it's incredibly subjective and it is completely tainted and co-mingled with every pattern that you've ever carried with you in life. If you can peel away these layers, you can actually start to see what the truth is without being primed toward a specific opinion or viewpoint." - Bizzie Gold     Cultivating Self-Trust     "Oftentimes we see that when a child has the ability to authentically be themselves and if that is somehow perceived to be at odds with how "we do things in the family" or how your religion is supposed to make you be, that child often gets negative feedback or feeling rejection for things that just feel inherently to be themselves. So, then the child learns to shut that down because they think that being themselves is not safe and they reflexively become a people pleaser or try to hide. There is so much of that prevalent in our society and then again is capitalized by these larger structures." - Bizzie Gold     Links From Today's Show  The Break Method The Modern Good Podcast The Self Study workbook 312 Kevin Kelly The Croods trailer Inside Out trailer Small Foot trailer 361 Luke Storey Homebirth Complications Resulted in Cerebral Palsy: Sarai’s Story Caroline Myss Wim Hof 332 John Wineland Dolores Cannon Facing Fear, Feeding Courage with Mark Divine 366 Mark Wolynn Viktor Frankl Are You Embodying Your TRUE Soul Identity?
