Harness your true potential and live your dream life as my guest today shows you how! I am super-excited (as also, it's my birthday!) to introduce to you our very first podcast guest, my dear friend, Nicolle Bennett! Nicolle is the founder of the NYC-based Create Agency. She is an advisor to social-change organizations and a coach for dedicated and socially conscious professionals. Nicolle teaches them tools to get out of survival mode and helps them identify and fulfill goals and strategies that are meaningful to them. On a personal level, Nicolle identifies herself as an explorer, leader, yoga enthusiast, baker, and lover of all things art and science. She helps people integrate self-care into their lives and gives them the right technical and mental support to live their best lives! The biggest mistake you can make in life is to live in fear of making one. If you're worried about what other people think, you'll get stuck living someone else's life. Fear of being judged or ridiculed holds us back from taking the right steps, saying the right words, and doing the right things. Fear of failure keeps us from trying at all. In this episode of Upgrade Your Light, we're discussing ways to break out of people's expectations and remarks -- we're discovering ways to truly set free. We explore: ● How I met Nicolle ● How to process your way out of people's comments - ● Center yourself before you talk to them ● Reflect before you react ● Stay in ownership of what they made you feel - do not turn it back at them. ● Be honest ● Growth and change are normal. Accept the fact that people evolve. Some people like the growing version of you while some others don't. ● Everyone has their own pace for growth. ● How to overcome people's expectations and live your life on your terms. ● Saying it rather than holding it in - often, your problems would find their solutions when you face them and speak up. ● Our Nicolle of Renaissance's advice to her younger self Connect with Nicolle!

If People Want to Walk Out of Your Life, Let Them!
We’ve all been ghosted  — at some point in our lives, we’ve all been left hanging with a bunch of unanswered texts and phone calls. It can be a heart-wrenching feeling when you realize that the person you’ve poured all your time, attention, and affection into has just suddenly disappeared. People have different reasons for doing it, but the end result is almost always the same: hurt feelings. Here’s the thing -- Nothing in life is forever. The universe is evolving, and so are we. So when the time comes, we HAVE to let some people go. Today I'm talking all about the "letting go" part of growing up - both for ourselves and for those who inspire us. Let's dive right in! We discuss: ● That you are worthy of love -- the right folks will come into your life when the time is right. ● It’s important to have clear boundaries in life, so when you step out of it, you know you have to pull back and reset. ● Anything new that happens in life is teaching you a new lesson. ● People change over time, which is why sometimes, we have to reintroduce ourselves to others and they need to do the same with us. ● If no one gives you the opportunity to do what you want to in life, create it for yourself. ● To make things happen, sometimes you have to also move out of your space. Take for example the global band, KPop, that traveled the world to pursue their dreams. ● Let go of the past and focus on the present. Mindfulness is key. Connect with Me!

It's Okay To Recalibrate Your Relationships
To everyone who's been a part of this momentous journey with me on this podcast - Thank You, and welcome to the (un)official start of Season Two of Upgrade Your Light! :) The wheel of life is always turning - everything in nature occurs in cycles; a new day turns into night, the seasons change, and the planets rotate around the sun. There are ups and downs, times of plenty, and times when you have nothing left. But it's hard to notice that until you sit down and take the time to reflect on personal periods of growth and development. We're continuing our new season with an all-encompassing understanding of nature and its magnificence. Join me on this episode to recalibrate your inner compass, forgive, and embrace new times as they come! Recalibration is a two-for-one deal we often fail to consider. As much as it is about forgiveness and moving on, it's also about inviting wisdom by learning from the past. We learn today why it's totally okay to recalibrate your relationships to relish every moment of your being. I also talk about: ● Earth cycles, love cycles, finances and the seasonal nature of times ● Why with times of despair come equal moments of joy ● Why you are worthy of all good things in life ● It’s okay to take a pause to reinvigorate yourself before you get back in your journey ● Why forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself and how it helps you move ahead in life with ease ● 3 keys to recalibrating your life and relationships - do not hurt yourself, do not hurt others, keep things consensual...always ● When your energy is clearer, you attract good into your life Connect with Me!

What Are You Believing?
The internet today is OVERWHELMED with news of all sorts! And as it turns out, there is an epidemic of false, sensationalized information going around us. While our most tended celebrities, social media influencers, or the ever-so-resourceful media circulate factual jargon, many of us put sensationalization into our brains without digging out the actual facts. Talk about intoxication! In this episode, we talk about the need to research before believing in anything. However catchy the content seems, however top the news website ranks, it is necessary to find out what’s real. We also discuss why sensationalization is a means to deceive the audience or even divert our attention to something different. We dig into: ● The effects of keeping a blind loyalty to influencers, the media, and celebrities. ● Real-life scenarios where sensationalization of news took honesty downhill. Example - Accusations of child abuse against the late singer-star Michael Jackson. ● Sensationalization indicates deception. It kills our ability to think wisely by showing us only what they want us to know. ● People who spread such news are often made to do this for remuneration or other personal benefits. ● Learn why there is a need to do detailed fact-checking and research before confirming any news.

What Is The Standard of Success?
Think along. Have you ever noticed how we get trapped into thinking that there is only ONE standard definition of success? And this standard is usually in the shape of money, or how many people are paying attention to you, or how you stand out from the rest of the world! What many of us fail to understand is that success, in actual case, is a tricky word with no universal definition— it’s purely subjective. To some, it could mean making more money, reaching your weight loss goal, or acquiring an entirely new skill set. Maybe it’s even something more spiritual than a milestone or achievement. Today, we’re breaking out of the stereotypical standards of defining success. In this episode, we discuss why it is important to evaluate our achievements holistically, for it is undeniably true that everyone is unique. In the end, what really matters is how you view yourself and your success as you advance in life. Listen in! We talk about: ● Why you shouldn’t make gumptions, intuitions and opinions of another person’s success. ● How time changes people and transforms their thinking - you cannot judge them unless you’ve realized their transformation. ● Uniqueness - it isn’t the only thing that stands out or makes you successful always. ● Understanding self-worth and why it is important. A victim mentality could hamper your progress in life. ● “Realize that there is more to life than just the physical world. There are many, many, many other layers in the universe. And if we tap into those layers, that's when we can truly find true, holistic success. [...] Find success on all levels, not just financial or materialistically. But mentally, emotionally, spiritually, everything.” ● To become successful, you need to only find out what resonates with you and makes you feel best. There is no one-size-fits-all definition of it. ● There’s deep seated, subconscious and unconscious stuff that people need to overcome in order to get to where they need to get to in life.

Is Your Life Bearing Fruit?
Let's be honest. Many of us have held onto things in life despite knowing that they were taking us nowhere going forward. Haven’t we? And this is because letting go can be hard. But isn't it equally hard to stay sticking around things that STUNT your growth as a human being? In this episode, we are talking about evaluating the various elements of our life holistically. I share how dissolving a company that I had been running for 11 years taught me that it is imperative to break a current cycle to invite something new. We also learn how to see things in terms of them bearing fruit or not. Here are some talking points: ● My up-and-down journey with our first business venture, Full Force Wellness Repertory. ● Learn how Lord Jesus also reinvented life processes. We look into the Holy Bible's story where Jesus cursed a tree because it stopped bearing fruit. ● A sense of thriving gives our life meaning. However slow our growth may come around to be, it must exist. ● Learn to let go of things with a sense of love. ● Volunteering, mentoring, and coaching are all things that bear fruit because you are helping others, even if it means not making any money. ● We don't necessarily like to do some of the things that might actually be bearing fruit for us. ● Once we let go of some things, we let in the things in our lives that we really want.

Psychics Exist, But…
You’ve probably wondered why some people just seem to have a master “sixth sense”. They somehow foresee unfortunate events, figure out why you behave a certain way or even see beyond reality to the world of the unseen! And while many are skeptical about such powers, why do you think some others like me believe that it’s real? In this episode, we are talking about psychics, AKA people who can see things beyond our natural range of perception. But… years of my understanding about these phenomena clearly show that psychics can ONLY see within the current reality. Today, I’ll also share with you how we validate this point. We will see that psychism is actually an umbrella term for a range of metaphysical occurrences like karma, mediumship, and clairvoyance. Listen in and discover how psychics can use their otherworldly abilities to change things around for good! We explore: ● My personal experiences that explained psychic abilities. ● What is psychism? Is it our ability to sense beyond the physical world? ● Why is psychism also attributed to our ability to feel others’ pain more, experience unearthly presence in dreams or our everyday lives? ● Psychic experiences draw a parallel to karmic occurrences. Learn how. ● Who is a medium, and how does it come under psychism? “All mediums are psychics, but all psychics are not mediums.” ● How do you awaken your gifts to help enhance other people’s lives?

How Much Is Your Self-Worth, Worth!
Sounds like a no-brainer, doesn't it? Ever since our 20s, we've worked on setting our career straight - drafting resumes, building our skillset, doing things for the sake of getting noticed, and gaining expertise. Fast forward to today, after years of experience, some of us are still willing to do things just so that we get money despite knowing we're worth a LOT more. That is why in this episode, we talk about understanding our worth. From a career spanning over a decade in the art and wellness industry, I have faced many clients who weren't willing to pay what I charged. And the reason? We live in a society that glorifies specific careers and undervalues some others. It stems from their failure to understand self-worth. Join me in this episode as I tell you how to develop a razor-sharp eye for opportunities and align people, finances, and jobs with your self-worth. Here are some talking points: ● Learn that sometimes, you have to do things that you've never done before to get what you want. ● When you start charging what you're worth, the right people will come to you. ● Religious institutions have thrived because they had the funds and the resources to spread their religion far and wide. ● How to assess things in terms of the opportunity and value they offer. ● Understanding and making others understand your self-worth. ● "People can always find the time to do things that they want to do. And the same way, people can always find the money to do the things that they want to do." ● If you believe in God and his gifts, you would also know that God wouldn't want you to sell yourself short.

How To Get Lucky! ...And The Reasons Why You May Not Be. (Part II)
Psst! Getting lucky is no more a secret! In the second part of our get lucky podcast series, you'll discover the remaining 3(+1) powerful factors to inviting good luck and helping flip the script of your lives! Isn't it incredibly surprising to realize how powerful a four-letter word such as luck could be? Previously, we discussed the role of your personal energy and spirit, mindset, and karmic and soul entitlement in bringing you good luck. Today, we don't just learn the rest of the KEYS, but we also connect the dots to see how they all work in unison for a happy and successful life! As it turns out, what you think is lucky for you might not actually be so. How then do you understand the divine rules that create your luck? Listen in as we unpack the factors that decide good fortune: ● KEY 5: Our Divine Angelic Family or Guardian Angels, who help us in our birth journey and purpose. One needs to connect with them and seek their blessings at all times. ● Be careful what you decide to manifest in life. ● The most challenging times give us the greatest life lessons. ● KEY 6: Our environment, a factor that helps us notice what we want. The people you surround yourself with or converse with, your house, and your office setup are all things that count under this. ● KEY 7: Timing. Whatever comes over needs to happen to you at the right time. ● KEY 8: Others. It cannot be that whatever is good for you is good for others. Your luck is also a function of the way it affects the others around you. "It may not necessarily be in the best interest of others for you to become a billionaire." Connect with Me!

How To Get Lucky! ...And The Reasons Why You May Not Be.
Why do some people discover outstanding success in life while others just don’t get to live up to their manifestations? The answer lies in a variety of factors, but ultimately, a lot of it comes down to luck. While some people seem to be extremely fortunate, some people are less so. While some of us get everything we want, some don’t. That brings me to the central theme of today’s episode - uncovering the most significant factors that create luck. Because when you work your luck, it starts working for you effortlessly. In this episode, I give away four of the seven unobstructed reasons that bring luck and success in life. Key learnings: ● When something you manifested comes to life, it means your energy at that moment was resonating with your overall energy or your spirit. ● Here are the four reasons for luck:      ● Your energy - Energetic clearing is real. Bad feelings could be associated with different parts of your body, like your hair even. The reason why monks shave their heads is that they have one less thing to worry about when aiming to cleanse their energy.      ● Your mindset - You need to remove the blockages that are there in your mind. These blockages could have stemmed from your past experiences.      ● Your karmic entitlement - Practice karmic exchange. Give, and you’ll see bigger things come back to you.      ● Your soul entitlement - The reason why certain things don’t happen to you even if you manifested it could be because you are not entitled to live in your present life. Maybe it keeps you from doing what you’re supposed to, or maybe it is entitled to another life of yours. ● From infancy till the age of about seven, we absorb everything that is given to us. We are like sponges that take in everything that comes into our contact. Growing up, we realize what is good and what is not. ● Hypnotherapy is an amazing way to control your mind and break it free from within. ● Karma happens on a soul level, not on the body. ● Small things have significant impacts. The butterfly effect is real. Relevant Links: ● Pranic Healing by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui ● Tai Chi : Chinese Martial Arts ● Reiki : Energy Healing Practice Connect with Me!

The Love Introductions
Even before you use verbal language to speak to a potential partner, your brain unconsciously ropes in what I like to call "Love Introductions" to prepare you for it. These teeny infallible ways of mentally greeting your might-be lover are what prompt you into connecting with them in the first place! Interestingly, even matchmakers agree that the stories of different people are as unique and diverse as they are. Look into yourself a little deeper today as I share with you some of the most untethered love greetings in this episode! In a fantabulous conversation today, I take you through the roadmap of romantic introductions and open your eyes to your relationship preferences and habits. I also open up about my first book, A Spiritual Guru Walked into the House of a Cash Master… And the Rest is History (quite literally)! Listen in. Here are some talking points: ● There are 5 ways by which you show and receive love from others, and these are called love languages. These are:      ○ Time - Giving them your time      ○ Gifts - Showing your love by giving gifts      ○ Using words of support and encouragement      ○ Physical touch      ○ Acts of service ● Love introductions are unconsciously used by you to communicate with your potential partner even before you open your mouth. ● There are five love introductions as I have learned over the years. These are:      ○ Physical attractiveness - Most of us develop a love interest for somebody based on their appearance.      ○ Wealth and Money      ○ Power and Status      ○ Fame - This is different from Power and Status as a person who is wealthy need not necessarily also be famous. Some people are attracted to fame while some others are attracted to power.      ○ Talent and Skill - A person’s abilities could also draw you towards them.

The 7 Keys To Prosperity
Money makes the world go around. But prosperity could be more than that. Prosperity is about the collective JOY we go after in life; it is what gives us freedom, contentment, and security. What have you known about prosperity that makes you work for it every day of your lives? Consciously or unconsciously, we’ve begun to understand that the fullness of life revolves around health, relationships, time, and resources. The abundance of all vitals is what totals prosperity. Today, I share with you the seven KEYS to the same. Because if you know what you want, you’re already a step closer to getting it. Tune in! P.S. - If you are interested in learning more about enhancing your prosperity and increasing your materialization abundance, I’m inviting you to check out my website I extend meditations and other courses you can take at your own time and help you transform your life for the best! In this episode, we learn: ● The 7 invaluable keys to prosperity: ● 1- Giving your time or resources to another person. ● 1 ½ - Receiving the same as gifts from others. Never refuse to accept gifts from others. Not only are you blocking yourself access to the things given, but you’re also blocking the blessings you are being given. ● 2 - Gratitude. You’re inviting abundance by thanking the universe for everything you are offered. ● 3 - Feng Shui (or Chinese geomancy). It deals with the energy of placement of objects, your house, and yourself. The way you organize your surroundings, the direction you face when you meditate, all of these matter. ● 4 - People Feng Shui. People around you in your life affect you in ways you may not have known before. If they’re draining you of your energy, it’s time you start doing something about it. ● 5 - Clearing your subconscious from anything negative that has been dumped on you. ● 6 - The law of attraction or putting in affirmations and the mantras. ● 7 - Being truthful about everything and not stealing anything. If you have, make sure you’re giving back more than you stole from them. Relevant Links: ● Chinese traditional practice of  Feng Shui Connect with Me! Instagram | YouTube | Facebook

The Positive Effects of COVID-19.
Life has a way of throwing you for a loop, whether it's an undeniable lockdown of sorts or you getting fired from your job. And although it can seem like your world is ending, often the toughest periods in life serve as life-changing experiences, changing us for the better. Your worst day can turn into your best if you let it. History has lessons that teach us the same. An incredible Harlem Renaissance followed the deadly Spanish Flu; Trump's era taught us that racism and bigotry were never really wiped off America. There's a silver lining to all the happenings in the world - and today, I'll share with you why even this pandemic has offered immovable lessons to humanity. In this episode, I talk about the unexpected ways in which the coronavirus pandemic has shifted our focus to a more connected and spiritual lifestyle, among the many other positives it brought in. While I unquestionably acknowledge that these times have put us all into many painful situations, let's also focus on some good that has come by. Listen in! We’ll learn: ● How we learned to reassess or redefine our relationships - getting closer to the people we already know, moving away from people who were no longer good to be around, or validating romantic choices. ● How and why I decided to walk away from a nine-year-old friendship. ● I share my thoughts on being nice vs. being kind and why I say I fall in the first category. ● Some friendships are seasonal. They happen for a reason and then fade away - because they have to. ● Learning to be introspective and taking care of ourselves. The pandemic has taught us to tap into meditation practices and other spiritual and wellness practices and rituals to stay level. ● Why you need to prepare yourself for situations before they come over you. ● Some major lessons from Trump’s times. ● What we learn from the Spanish Flu and Jewish Holocaust - and how it affected generations of people later. ● Why we say that trauma can run through generations. ● Using intelligent evaluation to see beyond the hype of anything.

Are You Successful?
It's no secret that the world runs on comparisons — even the most seemingly complete measures of success are almost always unwise. What we are blessed with is the liberty to choose whether to go by the existing staged definitions or not. Remember, there's going to be a barometer measuring your success in every facet of life. You're going to be weighed with others like you, financially, critically, or in different other ways. Let me teach you this today - your success metric NEED NOT match with any others'. Explore the eight different facets of success you could really be missing on noticing in this episode. You'll be doing a mindful exercise with me on understanding and evaluating your success in life. It's going to be an EYE-OPENING experience, I promise! We'll discuss: ● How a former friend of mine showed me that success cannot only be measured by the amount of money a person makes. ● Celebrities are a great example to understand that money and fame need not be the only things happening around people's lives. Documentaries of many celebrities have shown how despite having a lot of money, they've had struggling times. ● The first definition of success is "accomplishing an aim or purpose". And this means, if you accomplish an aim or purpose, you're successful. It also means if you can get through the day without having any issues or emotional upheaval - that was a successful day. ● Western cultural definitions of success are often illogical. Listen in as I cite a few examples today. ● Learn the difference between external and internal success. ● We learn about having "moments of success". I share with you my ways of looking at how successful I am today. ● We do an exercise to determine where YOUR success lies in life. We discover and delve into the various aspects of internal success - physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, career-related, financial, relationships, hobbies, and interests.

Get Rid of Stress & Anxiety, Fast!
If you've ever been told that you have a "stress problem," I have some good news for you -- you can get over it really quick! You might not know this, but your stress could be the outcome of the tension or distress caused by another person - the vibes or energy of others. But have you known that stress isn't always bad? Amid all the negative feelings brought in my stress lay some good ones - eustress or GOOD stress is that which you experience before a rollercoaster ride or before you get to the stage to speak, and at times when it HAS a critical role to play in our lives. In this episode, I walk you through the different types of stress and their causes. I also share with you a quick breathing exercise and five bonus ways to get over stress and anxiety at any time, FAST! We'll discuss: ● Good stress and bad stress - while bad stress or distress is entirely harmful to us, good stress is essential to carry. ● As humans, it is natural for us to feel the stress and anxiety of others. ● Square breathing - You'll do this incredibly rewarding technique with me today! Square breathing takes you back to your center and allows you to really harmonize your entire body. ● Ways to get over stress fast-           ● Breathing - practice square breathing or any other stress relief breathing technique as step one.           ● Environment - Switch from the environment you're into a different one, one that's calming or if it's closer to nature, the better. The mind-body connection is what comes to play here.           ● Change your posture.           ● Use pattern interrupts - changing the subject is often a good pattern interrupt.           ● State - Change your emotional state.

Say what? Say how!
In life, real communication is not the same as talking. It’s a skill we don’t often think about but that we use all the time. Imagine the last time you had a disagreement with a loved one. What did you say? What was your tone? Were you able to reach a happy medium? All we want is to get our point or message come across more effectively. For this, we need just to soften the blow, be credible and genuine. How is it different from sugarcoating? How do you convey your message and yet not create a conflict or stir? The key is to soften HOW you say it, not WHAT you say. In this episode, I’ll share how I learned the hard way that most often, saying what you have to in a better way could lead to healthier relationships and better outcomes. It’ll be a guidebook of my personal experiences that taught me how to master this ability. I share with you: ● How I got out of friendships that did not respect me, and how I ended up creating non-negotiable terms for my dealing with people. ● Holistically looking at an entire situation when some happening of the present triggers a bad memory from your past. ● Non-negotiable terms could work in business, but in real life, sometimes you have to evaluate it better. ● How I soften situations and say what I have to without hurting another individual. ● Learn how sugarcoating is different from softening the blow and why the latter is more genuine and works better. ● Using sandpaper as a metaphor to soften the blow. You gradually make it appear soft and smooth. ● If someone feels hurt by you, they are going to do something to retaliate. No matter how nice a person is or how kind they are. That is human nature. ● My top 3 supporters in life and how a personal memory with them taught me the importance of conveying a message in the right way and not to hurt another person’s sentiments, no matter how true your point is. ● I read out the letters I wrote to 2 old friends of mine whom I couldn’t stay with any longer - excerpts from my book, A Spiritual Guru Walked Into The House Of A Cash Master. ● According to science and the hormones, when our hormones are all over the place, sometimes we're up and sometimes we're down. So it's important to know that it’s not what you say. It's how you say it that matters more.

Being "Spiritual" Is a Cop Out!
We all have a hundred, if not thousand reasons to believe that spirituality, when rooted in a particular religion, invokes divisiveness. It's so easy to get stuck in the trap of thinking that religion is a means to restrict us. While we see some people trying to distance themselves from it, some others find no way to tap into their spiritual self other than through religion. Fact is, religion was always meant to only enforce spirituality. We’ll explore in this episode how to justify the same. With more and more people wanting to connect with their spiritual energy, the world is seeing a boost in spiritual gurus - social media influencers put up even baseless knowledge to draw people into their practice. What exactly does spirituality mean? Is it a path of meditation or prayerful contemplation on God? Who do you turn to for spiritual guidance? I find spirituality to be awesome. I believe people have spirits, I believe you can tap into yours, and I believe you can use it to whizz ahead in your life with magnificent awakened energy! Here's what we are discussing about spirituality and religion today: ● What spirituality means and why we say that it helps enhance, enlighten and connect your life with The Source. ● Religion, in its true sense, was never meant to be restrictive. ● Translations of Holy books have been happening since time immemorial. Are you sure the one you read in the past properly translated the message from the higher power? ● Why it is that a lot of people blindly follow religion without making their self-discovery and practicing their sense of self-mastery. ● Not everything preached in the Bible, or other religious books are meant to be taken literally. Many things you read in the Bible are actually meant to be deeper spiritual truths. ● An example of how man misunderstood the Bible's teachings - What the Bible said about a slave-master relationship was nowhere related to slavery practiced in America years ago. It lasted for about 246 years, and that's multiple generations! ● Why you need to practice spirituality, whatever your take is on religion, whether you like it or not, the religious practices that are done are formatted, regimented, and are there for a reason. ● Why do we say that not all spirituality gurus are authentic? ● Using intelligent evaluation to determine whether something is good or bad. ● A spiritual cord is a divine cord of energy that connects you to the source. The larger and stronger someone's spiritual cord is, the more connected they are to the spirit. ● Why we all want to connect with our spiritual energy.

Are You REALLY Living Your Own Life?
Most people are waiting for something to happen or for someone to tell them what they need to be doing in their life. We all know that it's impossible to please everyone. We know this, and yet we spend the majority of our lives trying to do just that. We waste precious time and energy on the opinions of others, often hurting ourselves in the process. Is someone else's opinion holding you back from living the life you want? In this episode, we learn to assess, evaluate, and discover our passions and work towards achieving them. We find out if the life we're living is based on our choices and desires or whether we're living it from someone else's opinion. And if it is not where you want to be, I'll tell you how exactly to get there! We'll discuss: ● We are our own individuals - our opinions of our life should not be a product of someone else's dictations. ● If you have the passion and the heart to pursue something, do it. ● Keep moving because when you do, the way will clear itself for you. You'll find out ways as you move. ● Life is cyclical. So, if you think you're at rock bottom now, know that there will be a time when you'll get to the top. ● Assess first and then take steps to move forward in your life. ● Outside influences can affect how you feel and how you want to move with a particular situation, especially if it's in a state where you feel like you're already unsure.

Why Manifestation Doesn't Work
If you're a spiritual seeker, you've probably dawdled around manifestation. And I'm sure many of us have been there - manifested something we really wanted but ultimately lost it. Or maybe we manifested something that we DIDN'T want, and it came true! How can this be? Why do you think your manifestations sometimes do not work? Here's putting it properly - manifestation is the practice of creating mental pictures and making conscious choices in order to realize them. Or, in simple words, it is about creating your reality through the power of thought and emotions. We all fail to understand that most of our dominant thoughts are on the subconscious level. And until you bring your thoughts from the unconscious or subconscious to the conscious, manifestations cannot work. In this episode, we'll learn to reinvent our techniques and practices to turn our manifestations into reality. You'll also get to do a quick gratitude manifestation technique with me as I guide you through! We’ll learn that: ● Your energy needs to be in a calm and stable place to manifest what you want. You cannot practice manifestation out of stress or anxiety. ● Trauma can pass through generations. And it really affects our manifestations. ● Why manifestations do not work most often - the technique you are using may not work for you, or you might not have cleared all your other negative thoughts that come in the way of manifesting your dreams and desires. ● Your mind does not know the difference between what is real and imaginary. So if you're grateful for something that you already have, even though you don't necessarily have it, the mind finds ways to bring them back to you. ● A simple and quick gratitude manifestation technique to do right now! ● How to use vision boards the right way.

"No" Is Your Superpower
I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- saying NO is hard, particularly when we're taught that putting others' needs and wants before our own is a sign of a good person. But what does it cost you when you try to be nice and accommodating to everyone? More stress, more anxiety, stretched resources? Why do people have such a difficult time saying no? We all want to please others, and when it comes to our loved ones and friends, we will always put their needs before our own. Being kind is about doing the right thing but being nice and saying yes all the time is about doing what you think others want you to do. In our society, the line between the two has become very blurred. In this episode, I teach you to use "No" as your greatest superpower. That said, I would not ask you to stop helping people, but I would tell you how and why to put yourself first at all times! We'll learn: ● We discuss the book - Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, and I talk about the opposite of what she explains through her book. ● Nice is pleasing and agreeable, but kind is just being considerate or helpful. ● Authenticity is about hearing the background noise sometimes. Do not overcommit yourself to things you don't really want to do. ● It's okay to change your mind when you realize you want to be kind and not nice. ● If you were to do something that you don't really want to do, there might be a sense of not being really in it fully, not being enthusiastic. By doing this, you're bringing that energy to the project and the other person. ● If you work hard, you need to rest hard. Life is always telling us this - recharge yourself when required. ● Sometimes, you have to sacrifice some things. You have to learn to take care of yourself first.

Earth Is Ghetto!
People often take others' words as a representation of their true feelings. And there's a good reason for this -- Unlike our thoughts and beliefs, which are often just internal monologues, it's very easy to pick up on the subtle signs people give off about how they feel about you. Their tone of voice changes; they get an uncomfortable look on their face; or change their body language. But there is a thin line when it comes to the toxicity of fear and people's concern, and you need to respond to them only after careful thought. In this episode, I share how I learned that there is a significant difference between being kind and being nice, and I chose kind. I also share with you why, sometimes, it is essential that you cut off certain relationships to keep yourself sane. We'll learn: ● Blocking others' toxicity from entering our lives. From the ages of one to seven, we're totally open to everything. You may still be experiencing some things in your adult life based on what they said. It is important to clear your mind from those thoughts. ● Fear is toxic. Sometimes, when people talk to you, they might be talking out of their fear and self-judgment. They're looking at it from their vantage point. ● There is a difference between being responsive and reactive. While a reactive individual makes snap judgments, a responsive individual considers the whole picture before making a judgment. ● Sometimes, it is essential to let people go. They might have been there only for a particular point in your life. ● There is a difference between being nice and being kind. On tough calling, I chose to be kind, and I tell you why.

Psychic Predictions Of The World From 2021-2024
Let’s view our earthly happenings through an astrological lens today! Do you know that each astrological age REFLECTS a particular type of consciousness that exists on our planet during a given time period? In astrology, each age is defined by specific elements, and each of these elements comes with a set of challenges as well as gifts. As it appears, the earth was formerly in what we call the Piscean age, where the determining factors were money, power, and control. But we’ve now advanced to the Aquarian Age, which has traits of love, brotherhood, unity, and integrity. What we’re witnessing in these times is this MASSIVE change that the entire universe is undergoing currently! In this episode, I talk about my psychic predictions for the earth from 2021-2024. I’ll explain why you need to get into your holistic wellness even better to prepare for the years coming. We'll discuss: ● The traits of the Piscean age vs. the traits of the Aquarian age. ● The Aquarian Age is about accepting yourself as a whole person - more freedom of sexuality and identity. ● To welcome the Aquarian age completely, we need to cleanse out anything that remains from the past. Hence, we're going to witness a lot of tragic phenomena before we enter the new age. ● I predict there will be a major economic meltdown in the coming years and that all of this that has happened is only a portion of the major. ● There could be a possible civil war and internet shutdown in the times forward. Countries would fight against themselves. The internet will stop working for some time because its karma needs to clean up too. ● I also predict lots of physical destruction happening in the next few years - this includes many natural disasters, including tsunamis, more tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes that'd be very violent and very destructive. ● You need to tap into your holistic wellness more. Holistic wellness practitioners are going to be the leaders for tomorrow during the Aquarian Age. And although modern medicine will still be relevant, we're going to see significant mixing in holistic wellness and Western medicine.

Let There Be Light!
Ever since I was a young kid, I could see things that others could not, experience things that didn't seem earthly. I was indeed born with psychic abilities. I have always had vivid dreams and could see spirits. As I grew older, my abilities became more vigorous. Fast forward to today, and I have been able to help others with their psychic abilities and help them resolve events in their past that they needed closure on. Although it has not always been easy, being different is something that I'm proud of today. "There is a light that is within us that's consistently burning, [one] that's consistently a flame." Upgrade You Light is my way of helping you discover the light within you. In the pilot episode of the podcast, I tell you the story of how I dug out my otherworldly abilities and the techniques and non-negotiables that you could use to make the best out of this venture! I'll tell you: ● My personal and professional background as a hypnotherapist, clairvoyant, energy healer, and aromatherapy practitioner. ● How I learned about my psychic abilities: feeling things before they happened, seeing things that did not exist, or finding objects or figures in the sky or space around me. ● Taking my first Pranic Healing class in 2013 by Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui, and what difference it brought in my life. ● How to use the podcast to upgrade your life and use intelligent evaluation to see if something fits your life or not - while most things would resonate with you, some others won't. ● Tap into your higher self using yoga, meditation, and the techniques I share on the podcast.
