#14 - Igniting Self and Others - the story of JB Owen
JB Owen is a powerhouse. She is. She is a mother of 3 teenagers, a CEO of 3 businesses (Lotus Liners, IGNITE YOU platform and JBO Global) and a loving wife to her husband, Peter. Beyond all her wonderful achievements, what I find inspiring the most is her journey in her life. It has been filled with intense ups and downs. Health problems, closed down her businesses, got a divorce, became a single mum with no support were just a few. Through it all, she experienced some "ignite moments" when, against opinions of others, she followed her intuition and went into un-chartered territory. I'm excited to have JB in this episode where she is sharing with us the pearls of wisdom she collected from her journey - in being a present parent for her children, in being an awakened loving partner to her husband, in being a conscious leader in her 3 businesses, in helping others ignite their lives and in manifesting her desire in and for life.

#10 - How your birth process STILL impacts you today! - Sharon King
Do you know that you started to form your beliefs about yourself, others and life when you were in your mother’s womb? Do you know that being born is often a traumatic journey for the baby as well as for the parents on the other side? Do you know that how you show up in your life today as an ADULT is mostly driven by your unconscious beliefs? Our birth process impacts us all. We formed many beliefs during this period of our life. The key to change our lives for the better is to change our unconscious beliefs into uplifting ones. This episode is a lively conversation with Sharon King, the creator of Matrix Birth Reimprinting, a subconscious mind healing method to heal traumas caused by the birth process. She is sharing why and how our birth process impacts us today (the same also is true for anyone who had been a part of giving birth process) and why it is important to heal the traumas caused by the journey of us arriving on this earth.

#9 - Intentional Living - Insights from a Monk turned Surgeon - Jehan de Soyza - Part 2
This is part 2 of 2 episodes sharing insights from Jehan de Soyza, a monk turned Eye Surgeon from Australia. As a part of his intentional life, Jehan lived and worked as a Monk for 9 years in multiple continents before becoming an Eye Surgeon.  He didn't set out to be one from the get-go. He was a Business student. In fact, that's how we first met in 1995. After sharing why and how he became a Monk in the previous episode, this one is about what he learnt from it, especially about meditation, success, personal growth and happiness. He shares how he continues to integrate them into his life today as a husband, a father, and a surgeon. Enjoy and be inspired!

#8 - Intentional Living - Insights from a Monk turned Surgeon - Jehan de Soyza - Part 1
What I find to be VERY helpful in moving through life following my calling is to be connected with people who are in their journeys moving through theirs. The reflections we share fuel our journeys. This is the first out of 2 episodes. I sat together with Jehan de Soyza, an Eye Surgeon Trainee in Royal Perth Hospital Australia. As a part of his intentional life, Jehan lived and worked as a Monk for 9 years in multiple continents. He didn't set out to be one from the get-go. He was a Business student. In fact, that's how we first met in 1995. This episode about why he chose to serve as a monk, the journey to become one, and what his ascetic life then was like (Mind you, I’m super curious to hear details about it. Aren’t you?). He also shares what he’s learnt meditation, success, personal growth and happiness. Enjoy and be inspired!

#7 - Your body's talking, are YOU listening? - Conscious Breathing
BREATHE… I heard my therapist repeating this to me as I received her help to rise back from the burnout I experienced at the end of 2008. BREATHE… While I followed what she asked me, I was puzzled. I didn’t understand at all the context of why she asked me to "breathe" when I was obviously breathing.  I did, however, develop a “new” habit since then: to remember to consciously breathing regularly everyday. I still keep it until now. I can’t speak highly enough how conscious breathing habit changed my life. In this episode, I invite Michelle Sabatini to share with us in-depth what #consciousbreathing is, what it does to us, especially in helping us to un-stuck ourselves from any situation anywhere, and how to do it. Enjoy! Time Code: 00:12          Welcome 0:40           The importance of breathing and why it’s worthwhile discussing it 02:20         Get to know Michelle Sabatini and how her body work approach helps many people to break automatic patterns in daily lives.  11:50           What conscious breathing looks like, why it is important to do, and why we often are unaware/disconnected from it.     19:12          Why it is important to accept what our body tells us and how breathing helps that. 27:00        How (tips to act on) to unblock us from feeling stuck, be it in a meeting, traffic jam, or any situation. 37:06        How breathing consciously helps us to let go the feeling of isolation and the role of pain in it. 44:30       Tips on how to breathe consciously regularly. 47:40        How to get in touch with Michelle Sabatini and what she offers (also for free) to help anyone to breathe consciously.
