Creator of Body Activation, Michele Kadison (aka kadisova) talks about physical, mental, and spiritual health; love; the pursuit of harmony; finding joy; how to make the best of living in our present world; and more. Learn how you can live a juicy life through raising consciousness on all levels as you develop new habits, ignite your curiosity, and walk into your authentic self without fear.
One of the most important ways to gain and maintain health is through proper care of what is called the "microbiome," which is our gut area where we find all the trillions of bacteria that keep us strong. When our microbiome is out of balance, inflammation is created, and this can lead to serious illness and disease. Going back to a simple way of eating where we have a little of everything helps to keep our immune systems strong via our good bacteria. Eating organic food that has undergone a minimum of processing is key. Add to this a natural way of moving the body in exercise, much like the way we played and danced as children, and we have a recipe for a joyously healthy and balanced life.
A continuation of the theme of curiosity and personal evolution...
When we have the courage to say "I don't know" we are opening a door to curiosity and growth. Once we acknowledge that we don't know something, we can then become inspired to find out more. By the discoveries we make, we evolve and are better able to claim our own personal opinion and belief system. I'm not talking about simply "googling" something to find answers. I'm talking about using your ignorance to fill up the space with knowledge, thus expanding your self and allowing you to become more interested and interesting.
We are all suffering from a kind of cultural depression, even if we can't readily identify it. A sense of loneliness, a lack of support, the effects of all the bad news that we are exposed to in one way or another, a lack of kindness and manners, not meeting in person with our friends, and too much time on smartphones and screens, are just some of the reasons why we feel ill at ease in life today. There are many ways to remedy this deep and growing tendency towards feeling disassociated, angry, helpless, or lost. Simply by making and fulfilling a promise to stay conscious and aware of even just some of the solutions, we can create a much more joyous and sustainable life for ourselves and others. Listen and you will find some of the solutions here....

Our immune system is our greatest asset. When we tend to it, our ability to stay healthy becomes limitless. By changing the way we think about diet, stress, medicines, and lifestyle, we can create a powerful personal system that helps us maintain radiance and strength.
Keeping yourself interesting is a way to keep yourself engaged with life. This means learning about the things that excite you in a deeper way, developing curiosity about the things you don't know, and developing skills that light a fire around what makes you happy and charged. Instead of looking to others to keep you from feeling bored, look to yourself through learning, asking questions, and finding the answers.
Each one of us has the power to change our personal frequency. There are ways to do this that allow us to reach a higher octave within ourselves so that life becomes more pleasurable, fulfilling, healthy, and balanced. We all wish to vibrate to the highest level we can, but often our minds get in the way. Whatever obstacles you may have had or have in your life can be lifted by changing your ideas around them. By "re-writing" your story you can change a negative frequency into a positive one, and as you do, you begin to feel better and thus help those around you to feel the same.
Everything presented to us in society is a conspiracy of myth designed to get us to buy into an idea or a philosophy. From politics to consumer products, grand myths are created to get us to buy into whatever the power behind these concepts or materials wants us to believe in. We are manipulated by myths, and not all of them are bad. In this podcast, I'm asking you to evaluate what is true for you and not to automatically trust the loudest voice, the most seductive ad campaign, or the principles that have seemed to serve in the past. Let's think for ourselves and discover what we truly believe in as individuals.
Can I love you and not agree with the way you behave or think, especially if it is harmful to me? If I am in a state of unconditional love, is this not a kind of acceptance that allows for anything without boundary? Boundaries are what we create to define who we are, and also to protect ourselves from that which can harm us. We don't have to love someone all the time. Instead we can acknowledge what they may need for their own growth process without having to embrace it or be next to it. With wisdom and flexibility we can accept our moments of not loving if their behavior gets in the way of our own health or boundaries, but without having to cut the underlying cord of love.
Staying flexible is the key to longevity, not just in terms of the body, but also in mind and spirit. As we create more space in the body, we become more open mentally as well. Through flexibility we create a juiciness which allows us to become more adaptable, open, accepting, and spontaneous. We can enjoy at any age... and this is the key to leading a healthy, happy, and balanced life. Listen to find out more...
We are all are healing from something, whether it's an illness, breakup, childhood trauma, or otherwise. Even the process of personal evolution is a form of healing. As our body, mind, spirit, and soul are connected, when one part needs healing the others feel it too. There are so many natural ways we can heal ourselves in life's on-going process, and as we become more aware of our feeling bodies and grow deeper in consciousness, it is easier to identify what we need.
Creating community gives us a sense of belonging as we share beliefs, feelings, concepts, passions, or talents with others of like mind. Being part of a community gives us a sense of purpose, keeping us from isolation and depression as we make our own unique contributions to the greater whole.
Many people today are depressed due to the loneliness that results from a lack of connection. Virtual communities have replaced actual communities, resulting in a separation from tribe. Tune in to learn more and to find some possible solutions...

Travelling alone is a tremendous way to learn more about yourself as you push the boundaries of your everyday life, learning to be present, to be curious, to be motivated, to be intrepid ... all without compromise.
Being impeccable means we work towards polishing ourselves so that we can make the most out of life. By doing the things we know will help us move forward, we become who we wish to be and thus lead a happier and more fulfilled life.
Eating natural foods that provide you with the ultimate in nutrition helps you create a more balanced and powerful life, both physically and mentally.

What happens when you are not allowed to express yourself? You become tight and angry, often leading to dysfunctional behavior. Self-expression is essential for mental and emotional health. Finding your creativity and expressing yourself through it is a brilliant tool for revealing your thoughts, feelings, and individuality.
Staying motivated often is a question of will. When we strengthen our "will" and find the power in mind over matter, we can overcome our internal obstacles. Enjoying the pleasure of the process helps, along with making doable lists that you can accomplish each day!
Gratitude is one of the most powerful components of love. Rather than throwing things away that seem to no longer work, why not mend them, cherish them, and be grateful for the soul that is imparted through bringing something broken or torn back to life, be it a relationship or a material object.
True beauty is simple. We find it in the little things. It is everywhere, we simply have to notice, whether it's nature, the power of music, the sensuality of moving our bodies... Noticing the things that stir your soul and turn you on is the gateway for bringing our own particular kind of beauty out into the open, turning the mundanity of life into magic.
We are all so individual and different. By discovering who you are and tapping deeper into how you truly feel about things, you are better able to listen to yourself when it comes to forming an opinion. Use the research tools that are at your fingertips to look at alternative opinions, methods, modalities. Don't listen to the loudest or most authoritative voice! And as you start to make decisions based on your instinct, you will feel better about yourself as you forge a unique path that helps define what you stand for.
Creating inner space is a way to feel more relaxed, more present, and more available to others. By getting rid of inner (and outer!) clutter, we are able to appreciate the present, soften around old emotional themes, become more open to ideas, and feel an overall sense of greater physical and mental ease.

Don't make yourself smaller to fit the shape of someone who may be coming at you with judgement or anger. See if you can stay anchored in the face of an argument, instead of shrinking! By distorting our own big beautiful shape in front of someone who is insecure or inflamed, we undermind our self-respect. By staying big, detached, compassionate, and taking a deep breath, we often can diffuse negative energy and find a better way to communicate.

Loving ourselves is so intrinsically linked with connecting to our 'feeling body." Becoming more in touch with our instinct and intuition, we become more connected to what it is that truly nurtures us as individuals. Through this connection we are able to make decisions that feed our authentic self and thus make us feel happier, healthier, and more balanced.
