91 | The 5 Bodies Of Our Being with Dr. Skye Zimmermann
We all have a physical body and we often think that this is who we are... but did you know that we actually have FIVE bodies? In today’s episode Kevin is joined by special guest Dr. Skye Zimmermann to talk about and give better understanding to the 5 bodies of our being. There are many aspects that make up a human being as an operating system. We are spiritual beings having this human experience so how can we operate this system well on Earth? We start with understanding what science has shown and many mystics have known for eons, which is that everything is energy. Everything is consciousness. Listen along to this episode so you can learn: What the 5 bodies of our being are How to take care of these 5 bodies Where to start with evolving your 5 bodies When we learn to nourish and nurture all of these bodies, we become awakened. When we awaken, we step into the ascension process, which is how we let go of things that are false, limiting and not of love. It’s ultimately an experience and part of the experience is choosing love over fear. If you would love to dive deeper into embodying these bodies and consciously creating your reality, then join Skye and Kevin in their upcoming full day LIVE virtual workshop on Saturday, June 26th!

90 | The Yin and Yang of Self-Compassion with Dr. Kristen Neff
We have heard the word compassion and we have a general sense of what that means but what about self compassion? Today we are joined by a very special guest, Dr. Kristin Neff, author of Fierce Self Compassion. She is a pioneer in the field of self compassion research. Listen as she shares her story on how she discovered her work and really her purpose. In this episode you will learn: What self compassion is The major difference between self compassion and self esteem How to develop self compassion What blocks people from building self compassion What you can do to practice self compassion The physiology behind self criticism What is fierce vs. tender self compassion Dr. Kristin shares so much amazing and powerful information in this episode! She really grounds for us that self compassion makes us incredibly strong and resilient. When we feel connected to others, when we feel loved by others, then we feel safe. We naturally do this for those we care about and practicing self compassion teaches us how to do this for ourselves. Dr. Kristin shared some amazing resources and she talked about her book that is coming out June 15th. You can find all this information on her website: Please see Dr. Kristin’s bio below. We really enjoyed this episode and hope you did too! Happy listening :) Dr. Kristin Neff's bio: Dr. Kristin Neff is currently an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. She is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion almost twenty years ago. In addition to writing numerous academic articles and book chapters on the topic, she is author of the book Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself. In conjunction with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, she has developed an empirically supported training program called Mindful Self-Compassion, which is taught by thousands of teachers worldwide. They co-authored the Mindful Self Compassion Workbook and Teaching the Mindful Self- Compassion Program: A Guide for Professionals. Her newest work focuses on how to balance self- acceptance with the courage to make needed change. In June 2021, she will publish Fierce Self-Compassion: How Women Can Harness Kindness to Speak Up, Claim Their Power, and Thrive.

89 | How To Use Quantum Manifestation
Quantum Manifestation is a topic that can seem complex, yet when we understand quantum manifestation and how to use it in our lives, we can create what we would love. We are beings of energy and everything is energy. Being able to manifest what we would love into our lives is an experience but we can break down steps to take in order to have that experience. After such a great discussion last week with Dr. Skye Zimmermann about the 5th dimension, we invited her back this week to help us break down quantum manifestation so you can have this experience we are talking about! Listen along to this episode to learn: What is quantum manifestation? How to use quantum manifestation? What can keep us from manifesting what we would love? How we can become addicted to certain feelings? Why support is essential on this journey? Dr. Skye reminds us that this process can feel overwhelming, but we have everything we need within us to do this. It truly breaks down into such simple steps. Ultimately, it’s about unlearning and to simply start somewhere by taking a baby step. If you would love to dive deeper into consciously creating your reality with more ease, then join Kevin and Skye in their upcoming full day LIVE virtual workshop on Saturday, June 26th!

88 | The 5th Dimension: What is it?
In both science and spirituality, the 5th dimension is a topic that is widely discussed, but vastly misunderstood. While there are complexities to this dimension, there's also a level of simplicity to it! That's why in this episode we invited Dr. Skye Zimmermann back to the podcast to share her insight into the 5th Dimension. Listen along as you'll learn: What is the 5th dimension? How does 5D reality compare to 3D reality? What are the detriments to remaining in 3D and what are the benefits of 5D?  What can we do to live more and more in the 5th Dimension? We answer all these questions and much more!  Are you ready for an even deeper dive into 5D and "Quantum Manifestation" so you can consciously create your reality with more ease and flow? Then join Kevin and Skye in their upcoming full day LIVE virtual workshop on Saturday, June 26th!

87 | Moving From Passive to Active Participation in Your Transformation
In the Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles he states in the chapter on action that "failing to connect thought with personal action is the rock upon which many otherwise scientific metaphysical thinkers meet shipwreck."  He is making reference to the importance of being an active participant in your transformation. Listening to podcasts, reading books, and gathering knowledge is great but it's only part of the formula for success and change. The other part is applying what you listen to, read, and gather knowledge on by taking action on it.  In this episode we dive into the difference between passive and active participation. We then make the case that moving from passive to active participation is the key to real transformation.  We include some personal examples from our own personal development journey's and provide you with practical tools and a challenge at the end to help you become more active in your transformation process.  Enjoy!

86 | How You Show Up in Life Matters
In this episode we have a discussion on the importance of bringing intention and spirit into every action that we do.  Our nervous system loves to identify and create patterns around how we think, feel and act. When we are creating habits, whether good or bad, we may have a tendency to "check out" when we are completing them once they become habitual. We lose the spark and the spirit that we once brought to that thing.  The first step to this is noticing and observing your energy around things that you do. We live in an energetic universe and so the energy we bring to the things we do has an impact.  How are you showing up for life?

85 | You Are Always Visualizing Whether You Realize It or Not
The title of this episode is quote from Spiritual Teacher and Mental Scientist Genevieve Behrend.  Many of us believe that the process of visualization is something done with set aside time and focused intention. Although used this way with success, visualization is also a process we use on a day to day, moment to moment basis. We are constantly visualizing our futures to help us navigate present moment decisions. We worry, we fear, we have hope, we ask "what-if" etc etc.  In this episode we discuss practical tools to bring awareness to this fact. The episode mentioned in the beginning on Imagination is Episode 32 of the podcast. Be sure to check that one out for a deeper dive into our imaginative faculties and why it is so important.

84 | Simple Practices to Access Higher Consciousness
When we expand our consciousness we gain more of our own power back. In order to access higher levels of consciousness you need to be in a state of low stress. We invite you to take a beginners mind to everything we share today. You may have heard of these simple practices before and may know them intellectually but we really want you to think about how you ground them into your own life. Listen along to learn about these simple practices so you can find your center and access those higher levels of consciousness by: Walking and admiring nature - when we actually pay attention to what’s going on around us we stay in the present moment Admiring art - art can reflect back to us an inner knowing that we can create something new in our lives Deep breathing - it slows down our physiology in a positive way to activate our parasympathetic nervous system Meditation - this can come in many forms and helps us find stillness Metacognition - when we notice what we're noticing we can begin to question and shift our thoughts It’s important for us to remember that doing this work is meaningful because it is not just about ourselves. It’s about the change we can make in the world. And if you listened to the end of this episode, Kevin felt inspired and guided to carve out time in his schedule to give away complimentary strategy sessions with him once again! In this one hour zoom call with Kevin, you will gain greater clarity on what patterns you are stuck in, what your vision is and what action steps to take to bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be!

82 | Accessing Higher Levels of Consciousness - What Does That Mean?
In today’s episode, we are stepping into our next series, accessing higher levels of consciousness. Consciousness is a term used more frequently now but what does that word mean? We start by diving in with the dictionary definition and our own definition of the word consciousness.

80 | Becoming A SelfHealer with Dr. Nicole LePera (The Holistic Psychologist)
Our society is no stranger to depression, anxiety and just everyday struggles of life. Many people want to change their lives, but genuinely have no idea where to start and feel confused on why making these changes is so hard. To help in overcoming these challenges we are truly honored to have a very special guest, New York Times best selling author, Dr. Nicole LePera (The Holistic Psychologist)! Listen along as Dr. Nicole dives into her story, her background as to how she became a holistic psychologist, and her book, How to Do The Work. Nicole defines what holistic psychology is and then we dive deep into how important it is to explore what the underlying symptoms or patterns are when it comes to depression, anxiety, etc. When we get to the why, we can begin to do the work that is necessary to begin making changes in our lives. In today’s episode you will learn: Where do you start? - Remember that this is a journey. Why is the work hard? - We spend most of our day living from the subconscious mind. What is consciousness? - This is becoming aware of ourselves and what is truly happening in our lives. How do you know it’s working? - We change by becoming more aware and more uncomfortable. What is trauma? - Understanding how our experience in certain situations and events shape how we live our lives today. How do we feel safe in our bodies? - Body based practices, such as breathwork. Dr. Nicole LePera explains that being a self-healer means to do “the work”. Everything starts within ourselves. As SelfHealers, we acknowledge the wholeness within ourselves. We are not broken, rather, we are disconnected from ourselves. It’s simply a part of the process that we peel back the layers of the onion to gain the relationship with ourselves and who we truly are. If you would like to follow Dr. Nicole LePera or learn more about her, you can find her on the following platforms: Instagram - @the.hollistic.psychologist Facebook - YouTube - The Holistic Psychologist Free Future Self Journal prompts - SelfHealers Circle - Happy listening :) Nicole’s Bio: Dr. Nicole LePera was trained in clinical psychology at Cornell University and the New School for Social Research. She also studied at the Philadelphia School of Psychoanalysis. As a clinical psychologist in private practice, Dr. Nicole LePera often found herself frustrated by the limitations of traditional psychotherapy.  Wanting more for her patients— and for self— she began a journey to develop a united philosophy of mental, physical, and spiritual health that equips people with the tools necessary to heal themselves. She is the creator of the #SelfHealers movement where people from around the world are joining together in community to take healing into their own hands. Her first book, How to Do the Work, is currently available and just two weeks ago became a NYT #1 best seller!

78 | Develop Your Relationship With Yourself: Creating Happiness & Joy Within
In this next episode of the series, developing your relationship with yourself, we talk about happiness and joy. Most people talk about happiness but what does it truly mean? The definition of happiness is a state of being happy. You can only do this by being present. Happiness is internal, not external. It’s important to develop a sense of what happiness and joy means to you and this is something you find within yourself. It’s essential to really think and feel into how you are relating to the things you are doing. It’s not wrong for us to want more, this is a part of our spiritual nature but it does depend on how you feel when it comes to what you want more of and why you want more of it. Listen along as we give you some tips on defining your happiness so you can: Give yourself space - Take a walk, sit on a bench or find a place where you can sit with yourself and reflect on what makes you happy Unplug - As you reflect completely, unplug from your phone and anything else that is ultimately a distraction Connect with your innocence - Act like a kid again, have fun and laugh Be patient with yourself - Don’t put pressure on yourself, there is no right or wrong way to find what makes you happy Challenge yourself - What are your patterns or how you living your life, so you can create more happiness in your day Be present - Remember being present, which is all we really have, is how we truly connect with being happy Everything changes when you bring happiness and joy into your daily life. This is a part of being a spiritual being. The word enthusiasm means God within. It comes back to connecting with your higher self. It is a part of your spiritual nature to be happy and have joy. Happy listening :)

Listen along as we dive into: Why - having discipline is so important for facing yourself and knowing thyself What - discipline actually does for us so we can build our self love How - you can begin to implement discipline into your life Discipline is ultimately about doing the thing you said you’d do even after the feeling you said it in has left you.

67 | Your Language is Creative: Practical Tips on How to use Language to Your Advantage
Your words matter. Language literally has the power to shape your reality. This is because words carry vibration and energy that your body picks up on. It contains information about how you feel about yourself and the world. In this episode, we discuss the following 6 examples of language: 1. I feel vs. I am 2. Describing yourself in parts - Saying "A part of me feels afraid" instead of "I am afraid" to honor that there is a part of you that wants to move forward 3. Avoiding the words "Should, Always, and Never" 4. Using the phrase "Up until now" to alert your subconscious that things are going to be different 5. Using "I get to" rather than "I have to" to honor the ability you have to choose as a human being 6. Why you "discover" your purpose instead of "finding" it. After listening to this episode, you will have a new appreciation for the subtle energy and vibration of language and know how to use it to your advantage. Information about Kevin's Strategy Session Gift: Remember, information doesn’t cause transformation, inspiration with action does!

65 | The Science of Heart-Brain Communication: Who's Really in Charge?
We have all heard the sayings right? "Always Follow your heart." "Come from the Heart." "Put your heart into it!" "The heart knows what it wants." Have you ever taken a step back and really thought about what these messages, which resonate deeply with us across generations and cultures, are actually trying to convey? In this episode, Chris dives into the Science of the Heart and how our brains might not be as in control as we thought. New science, combined with old science that has been largely ignored for years, has combined to give us a new model of how the Heart and Brain communicate.  After listening to this episode, the above statements about the heart will have a new found meaning for you. Let's dive in.

64 | The Power of Language and Being Intentional with Your Words
In this episode we dive deep into the Power of Language. In a nutshell, our words are powerful.

When we realize the power our words actually have, we start to get intentional about what we think and say.

63 | God's Place In Science & Spirituality
Have you ever heard anyone say, “You are (a) God”? Maybe that resonated, maybe it didn’t, but what if it’s both true and not true?  In this solo episode, I (Kevin) share my beliefs about God and what "He" is and isn’t. This is a deep topic and I did my best to summarize the large concepts that many people can get confused by. I believe it’s essential to connect with this Infinite Power within and so I hope this sheds light on the whole subject, so you can walk away with a deeper belief in what’s true for YOU!  And lastly, in my experience, the answer to the question above is… it’s both and in this episode I share why! P.S. I refer to Ariana Grande's song "God is a woman" and totally messed up in saying it was Beyoncé 😂 P.P.S. The other song by Daniel Nahmod is called One Power

62 | The Power of Crystal Healing & Resonance with Beatriz Singer
Many of us have heard of crystals but do you know what crystal healing is and how it can truly help you on your spiritual journey?  Today we have the special honor of talking with Beatriz Singer, a crystal healer and author with 20+ years of experience (you can see her bio below). We dive really deep into the power of crystal healing and how it works, all while hearing Beatriz’s amazing spiritual journey! In this episode you will learn what crystal healing is through the following: Crystal resonance - Beatriz explains how our frequency and that of the other object syncs together Experiencing crystal resonance - how crystals raise our frequencies The best way to work with crystals - you do this through tuning into your energy The science behind crystal healing - crystals work much like our modern electronic devices How to cleanse your crystals - so you can keep their energy balanced We were blown away from what we learned from Beatriz and we are excited to share this with you! To download Beatriz's guided crystal energy meditation, click here. And if you'd like to get her book, The Crystal Blueprint, click here. Beatriz Singer Bio Beatriz was initiated into the art of crystal healing by Hindu masters in India. She has also studied directly with South American shamans, Tibetan Buddhist monks, Indian gurus, and other luminaries. As a university-trained journalist, Beatriz also has the ability—and inclination—to observe, question, and research. Along with the sensitivity, awareness, and intuition of a healer, she has the information-gathering skills and mind-set of a journalist. She has gathered information from quantum physicists, neuroscientists, psychologists, geologists, archaeologists, historians, researchers, and others who use quartz crystals as key elements in technology and healing. She integrates ancient wisdom and science about the mind, body and crystals from different schools of thought. Beatriz draws on all this knowledge to connect science and ancient wisdom with crystal healing. To connect the dots and demystify a subject that has often been more associated with placebos than with crystals’ unique properties and prove their real power. Beatriz is a living example of what crystals can do when you work with them as a potent tool for healing. Not only has she healed her cancer, healed her relationships, and manifested her dream life, but she also won first prize in the prestigious Hay House Writer’s Workshop Contest in 2017 with The Crystal Blueprint. Happy listening and crystal healing :)

61 | Why Awareness is the First Step to Change and How to Use It
Awareness is defined as the knowledge or perception of a situation or fact.  In this simple definition lies the key to all transformation and change. How? Simply because of this: In order to change something, a habit, an attitude, a situation, etc, you need to CHOOSE differently. In order to CHOOSE differently, you need to be aware of the current choice you are making and aware of the ability you have to change that choice. In the absence of awareness of our thoughts, emotions, habits, patterns, and actions, we will continue to be dominated by the rhythm and cadence of our life as if on autopilot. In this episode, Chris walks you through how to get under the hood of your perceptions and shine the light of awareness on them so you can make better choices.  Awareness breeds Choice. The more awareness you have in your life, the more opportunity you have to break out of the patterns, and choose differently.

60 | The Science and Spirituality of Changing from Within
On today’s episode we talk about how to transmute the energy within yourself to become the higher version of you that you see in your dreams and in your visions. We have to change within before we can see results without. We dive into the science and spirituality of this and the importance of doing the work to change. In this episode we expand on: Why it’s necessary to change our internal world before we see change in our outer world - so you can stop allowing your environment to dictate who you are and how you feel. How to change your inner world - through visualization and creating a vision / framework of who you’d love to be regardless of external circumstance! How to create your own reality - through unplugging and disconnecting from your 5 senses so you can start having original thinking in the absence of outside stimulus.  Micro vs. Macro on your reality - we expand on responding to the same situations differently and provide you with examples of how this changes your reality. The science behind this - learn how you literally turn into a different person, emotionally and physiologically, when applying this work! As we enter the season of giving, Kevin would like to give a gift of an hour long strategy session with him! In this session, Kevin helps you get clear on what struggles you're facing, the patterns you’ve been living, getting you clear on your vision and giving you action steps to take to bridge the gap on where you want to be!

57 | The Importance of Disconnecting From Our Always Connected World
We live in a world where we are constantly connected. Constantly plugged into our phones, updating our social media platforms, scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, watching YouTube videos etc. The more we are plugged in, the less time we have for our own original thought.  These platforms are fighting for one of our most precious assets: our time and our attention. When we spend time on our phones or devices, we are being stimulated to think and feel certain things.  It's no wonder so many people today don't know who they are or feel like they don't have a strong relationship with themselves. It's because we don't spend enough time alone with our thoughts.  In this episode, Chris talks about the importance of disconnecting from our outside world so that we can connect with our inside world.

55 | How Societal Thinking and Comparison Keep Us From Following Our Dreams
Have you ever had an idea or a dream to do something but either asked yourself: 1. Is this dream too big? What if I fail? Will people support me? or 2. Is this dream too small? Should I be dreaming bigger? Will others look down on me for this simple dream? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you might be a victim of comparing yourself to others. In other words, you are afraid of what others may think of you. In this episode we discuss: Why it's 100% normal to have these thoughts. What to do about these thoughts and how to move forward. Why having a simple dream to live a simple life is just as meaningful as having a huge dream to impact the world. The importance of resonance when it comes to choosing and following a dream. Why societal thinking and programming keeps us from following our dreams. Remember, information doesn’t cause transformation, inspiration with action does! There is a power when you go deep within yourself, but we also understand that it is not easy. We often need help along the way to reprogram these beliefs.

47 | Money Mindset Shifting & “The Zen of Finance” with Alex Macfarlane
A limiting belief that many people have is that money = security/worthiness. If we believe that money is the source of our security and worthiness then it’ll always be fleeting and we’ll always be trying to get more. That’s why in this episode we invited Alex Macfarlane to help shed the light of truth on this belief system as well as so much more! Alex is a financial professional that has worked with hundreds of business owners, individuals, and families. While assisting clients with investing, business planning, and retirement planning, he realized that there was a major missing piece of education that few financial professionals spoke about: understanding emotions and mindsets around money. If you’d love to connect with Alex, visit his blog where you can sign up for his free newsletter too! 👉

46 | Being Aware vs. Being Spiritually Conscious: What is the Difference?
In this episode we dive into a question we received from one of our listeners. The questions is as follows: “What’s the difference between being aware and being spiritually conscious?” We talk about the difference between these two terms and make the case that awareness is actually what PRECEDES spiritual consciousness. When we are aware, we have a perception or the knowledge that we are thinking or behaving in a certain way. Spiritual consciousness comes in what we do with that awareness. We go through some examples of this and may more! We hope you enjoy. If you would love to have your question answered by us, please DM to us on instagram @scienceandspiritualitypodcast

In this episode we have a discussion on connection and how we both believe vulnerability creates and facilitates deeper connections amongst people.

42 | The 5 Love Languages - A conversation on Relationships
On this episode we go through a brief discussion of the 5 Love Languages originally wrote about in a book by the same name by Gary Chapman.  Relationships are a huge part of being human. It is said that one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life is who you choose as a life partner. Navigating our intimate relationships becomes easier when we realize that everyone gives and receives loves in different ways, in different "languages". We have both used the wisdom of Mr. Chapman in our own intimate relationships. Knowing your partners love languages, and having them know yours, allows more information and communication into the relationship. It makes loving each other easier because you know HOW the other person wishes to be loved.  Take a listen! We hope you enjoy.

41 | Toxic Positivity

We talk about how this attitude can be detrimental to growth and how it has gotten worse with the advent of social media.  We also talk a little about how you can use your negative thinking as information in to what you need to improve.

38 | The Compound Effect
Often people think they have to make massive changes in a short amount of time in order to create radically different results in their lives, but the research shows that’s just not the case!

It’s never easy to do at first, but it’s always worth it. Books referenced: + The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson + The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy

37 | The 6th Mental Faculty: Perception
The last installment of our 6 part series on the Mental Faculties! In this episode we talk about Perception.  Perception at first glance is the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. What we are talking about though here is our spiritual capacity to use perception to interpret and place meaning on events, situations, and circumstances of our lives.  We are all using this mental faculty on a day to day basis. When you learn to use this faculty to your advantage, you begin to find the seeds of opportunity in all of your adversities.  As always, please check out the first 5 episodes of this 6 part series =D. Enjoy!

36 | The 5th Mental Faculty: Reason
Reason is what gives us the ability to really think, to be consciously aware of the thoughts and ideas that come to our mind, and to choose to reject or accept them into our reality. Most of us use our faculty of Reason to justify circumstances or situations in our life that keep us stuck. When we access "Spiritual Reasoning" or "Extraordinary Reasoning" we begin to ask different questions and use different logic to allow us to live in a more expansive way.

35 | The 4th Mental Faculty: Memory

32 | The 1st Mental Faculty: Imagination
The first of 6 parts of our "6 Mental Faculties" series. If you haven't checked out the intro episode last week, I suggest you do that! Imagination allows us to move between our spiritual infinite side of our nature and our human finite side of our nature thinking up a reality for ourselves that is different than the current one we live in. This is a powerful mental faculty that most of us use to torment ourself.  How many times have you allowed your anxiety about the future fixate your mind on a reality you didn't wish to bring about? How much of your present moment have you spent worrying, procrastinating, or regretting the past? These are examples of using imagination against you.  In this episode we introduce the faculty of imagination and discuss how you can use it to dream up a vision for your life. Everything is created twice. Imagination is the starting point to transcending your current experience.

29 | The Surprising Truth About Perfectionism + Practical Tools on Letting Go
Most people believe that things have to be perfect in order for them to move forward. Then, when an obstacle pops up or their plan isn't working, they quit way too soon. At best they try to force things to be a certain way which causes tons of frustration and pain. In this episode, we talk about how to let go of the idea that there's ever ANYTHING that's perfect. The quest for perfection is really the quest for certainty. We want to know how things will work out and what will happen next, but in our need for certainty we miss out on the growth is available to us all along. Knowing that things will never be perfect allows you to be aware of the adjustments you can make in the moment. Remember, planes never fly perfectly to their destination, they literally "fail their way to success." If you're ready to give up the perfectionism that's holding you back, then let's dive in!

19 | A Perspective on Forgiveness
A Perspective on Forgiveness On this episode we are joined by Julie Householder, a life coach and Biofield Immersion Healing Practitioner, to discuss the topic of forgiveness. Most of us believe that forgiveness is an outward act that requires you to be okay with what the other person did to you. We argue that this is just not the case. Forgiveness is an internal shift in awareness and energy within yourself. It’s the ability to shift the story you tell yourself about the other person, and your relationship to the event. In this episode we discuss: How forgiveness work is a constant process, not something you do once. Victim mindset, and how it keeps a lot of us stuck in resentment and an unwillingness to forgive. How an unwillingness to forgive and hold grudges is actually harming YOU, not the other person. How taking responsibility for your forgiveness work will increase your sense of agency over your life. Two life coaches expert tips on how you can begin to forgive even those who have hurt you the most, and why this is so important to your overall health and well-being.

Whether, we realize it or not, all of us are telling stories in our heads.  -Stories about ourselves, who we think we are, what we believe we are capable of -Stories about events, situations -Stories about other people, what we think of them, what they think about us. All of these stories we tell have the tendency to be warped by our perceptions of reality. Why? Because we are the ones telling them! In this episode we discuss the importance of stories and how, oftentimes, regardless of if they are ACTUALLY TRUE or not, can harden into facts in our minds and run our life.  We also provide some of our best tips and tricks to first notice the stories we tell, and then change them to be empowering.

14 | Why Negative Thinking Is GOOD!
The only place we can ever change is in the present moment. So when negative thoughts or limiting beliefs come up, it's actually the PERFECT time to change it! This is contrary to popular belief, so in this episode we dive into why this happens and what to do when these old patterns rise up. Remember, your negative thinking is not here to stop you... it's showing up in order to be released and re-patterned. Negative thinking doesn't mean that you're doing something wrong. It means you're on your growing edge. Look at negative thinking as a call for awareness of the patterns you need to change in your life. If you ignore your negative thoughts or try to suppress them, then you won't take advantage of the opportunity right in front of you to create a radical change in your life.

13 | Who Are You Really?
Who are you really? Put simply, you are spirit, energy, consciousness that inhabits a human form. You are not your name, you are not your habits, you are not your patterns, you are not your behaviors, you are the energy that gives those things life and animates them in this human existence. What this means is that you are just a few behavior changes, a few habit changes, a few pattern changes away from being a completely different person. You are not broken, you are not flawed at the level of source. The only thing that is flawed is the mold you are providing this source to flow through. We talk about this idea on this episode and shed some light on how this fundamental idea can help you through times of anxiety, depression, and self-doubt.

12 | You ALWAYS Have a CHOICE...
In this episode we discuss one of the most important topics to understand in today's world: Knowing what you can control and what you can't control and the wisdom the know the difference. Without the wisdom to know the difference, we have a tendency to waste our time, energy, and thought power on things that are out of our control. The common thread of this episode is this: No matter what situation you find yourself in, you ALWAYS have a CHOICE about what to THINK about the situation. No one can take that from you. It is not often situations and circumstances that create problems in our lives, it's often our thinking and perception about them. This can come as a shock to a lot of people who believe situations and circumstances happen TO THEM and that they have no part in them. Situations and circumstances happen WITH YOU and THROUGH YOU and you have 100% dominion in how you choose to think about and perceive them.  We hope to spread some wisdom about this topic in this episode. You don't want to miss it!

We have all heard of the "mind-body" connection. We now know that the way we think, and how we feel, has a profound affect on our overall health. But, did you know there is also a "body-mind" connection? Your mind sends signals to your body and your body sends signals to your mind. This constant exchange of information impacts everything about our physiology.  We all know that humans can be addicted to certain drugs. Did you also know that we can be addicted to certain emotions? Our bodies can crave an emotion so badly that it will influence our brains to create a thinking pattern in alignment with that emotion as to generate it. We talk about this and more on today's episode.  Enjoy!

7 | Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs
“Assumptions, if left unchecked, eventually harden into facts.” We all make assumptions in life that turn into our belief system, but the problem is that many of these beliefs are limiting.

In this episode, you’ll learn powerful questions to ask yourself to unearth your limiting beliefs and a fool-proof way to install new, more expansive beliefs. Also, Kevin will give you an example of a limiting belief that he carried around for decades and how he successfully let that go, so you have a real understanding of how to do it for yourself.
