66: How my grandmother inspires me to learn, grow and adapt
Last month I got to meet my grandmother after more than a year. Though we've had phone calls and even a few video calls, getting to experience her beautiful, warm, loving energy in person felt so good! In her eighties, she still keeps herself occupied all the time. It's so inspiring to watch her. Spending time with her made me reflect on the amazing life she's lived. I began to wonder what she must've been like when she was in her early forties, and it dawned on me...when my grandma was as old as I am right now, she already had her first grandchild, me. That thought really shook me awake and took me on an introspective journey that triggered this episode.

Efia Sulter is a manifestation and mindset coach. After having experienced tragedy, trauma and incredible transformation in her own life, she started Conscious Alchemy, where she teaches her V.I.B.E.S method for conscious manifestation.

After attending her workshops and online retreat, I really wanted to invite her on to my podcast so all of you could get to know her. In this episode, Efia and I have discussed a number of things surrounding conscious manifestation.

63: My Baked Tofu Formula for Joyful Success in Life and Business
I mix the sauces and tofu together, cover and let it marinate, bake everything, relish the dish, and slow down to let it digest. That’s an excellent process to achieve delicious baked tofu, but it also works successfully in other endeavours. Here are the five steps: Inspiration – creation/planning/ideation Marination – allowing the ideas to come together Action – doing the work Celebration – savouring and honouring everything that led to this success Relaxation – resting after a job well done In this episode I explained each step in detail, and share how you can incorporate this process into your business and personal life. Implement the system and watch things fall into place beautifully. It’s an enjoyable cycle that keeps your work, your projects and your life flowing smoothly.

61: Five Simple and Powerful Full Moon Rituals
The energy of the waning moon is very conducive to clearing unwanted energy from your life so that space can be created for new, useful energy. I follow various spiritual practices on full moon nights and the days following it. Here are my five favourite full moon rituals for you to try. They're simple and powerful. If you're new to this, don't have to do all of them at once. Just start with the practice which most resonates with you and build from there. I've spoken about these five rituals in detail on this episode: Washing and Charging Crystals Write, Tear, Burn – Emotional and Mental Clearing Sound and/or Aroma Ritual – Energetic Cleansing Guided Meditation Intentional Decluttering– Physical Cleaning for Manifestation Apart from these, if you're able to, spend at least 30-60 minutes looking at the moon and bathing in its light every full moon night. It's a beautiful, calming, energising experience. Episode blog post with links and additional information: https://www.veganosaurus.com/full-moon-rituals-episode-61

60: Story Telling, Future Love Notes and Day Dreaming with Yes Yes Marsha
Marsha is hands down the most fun, interesting person I’ve interviewed on my show until now! As soon as you start listening to this conversation, you’ll feel the energy uplifting you. Our excitement and laughter throughout are both totally contagious, so make sure you’re somewhere where it’s okay for you to randomly burst out laughing. The episode made me feel so good that I’ve listened to it multiple times. Yes, even after I had completed the editing and refining work and didn’t “need” to listen to it anymore! That’s how much I love it. This woman is full of delightful stories and ideas! I can’t get enough of them. And I’m beyond excited for you all to get as hooked as I am to the wonderful world of Yes Yes Marsha. Oh and if you’re a podcaster, you’d be lucky to have her as a guest. She created a secret web page just for my audience with all the links and resources she mentioned on the show. And what’s even more amazing is that she freaking noted down all our talking points and sent them across to me so I could easily copy/paste them below. How thoughtful is that?! Here they are, the key topics we discussed in this episode: Storytelling as time travel Everything you need to know about how to tell good stories (in 5 mins) How to edit your stories Marsha's thoughts on manifestations and tarot (and how they can work, even for the skeptics) Her philosophy on why it's important to get your hopes up Her best ever life hack — writing letters to your future self Episode web page with Marsha's secret web page link and additional information: https://www.veganosaurus.com/yes-yes-marsha-episode-60

59: When Life Gives You Lemons – Mindfulness, Joyfulness and Being You
My friend Shilpa did a series of video interviews featuring women supporting women on her Instagram page during the week of International Women’s Day. I was delighted to be a mid-week guest! The idea was to discuss mindfulness, joyfulness, and being yourself – through all of life’s ups and downs. But as the conversation progressed, she had so many more interesting questions that we ended up covering a wide range of topics. Tips and guidance to help women in their entrepreneurial journey and personal life. Shilpa has a beautiful way of guiding the conversation and asking the kind of questions to dig up nuggets of wisdom and insights from you that you didn’t even realise you had. Once you listen, you’ll agree with me that this woman should be running her own podcast! Haha By the end, I knew I just had to pull the audio from that interview and put it here for all of you. It’s like getting a delicious assorted platter of all the things I usually discuss on the show, plus more. Here are some of the things Shilpa and I conversed about: Mindfulness – being fully present in each moment Establishing boundaries with family, colleagues and customers Unapologetically taking time for yourself Delegation over perfection The power of prioritising fun Sustainable happiness Need for digital and physical disconnection Running your business from a place of inspiration Enabling others through your own happiness Quieting the mind and avoiding overwhelm Making lists, brain dumping and taking deep breaths Overcoming blocks to having an abundance mindset Being excited, finding lessons and showing gratitude How to make difficult choices and when to let go Episode Web Page: https://www.veganosaurus.com/when-life-gives-you-lemons-episode-59 Use code "veganosaurus10" on Shilpa's website Jus'Amazin and get 10% off on your first order.

58: The power of clean eating, women’s health, positive energy, mindfulness and more with Manasa Rajan
Holistic health and wellness coach Manasa Rajan experienced the magic of going vegan in her mid-twenties. It immensely benefitted her and her family’s wellness, and over the years has shaped her purpose in life. Manasa's mission is to help people upgrade their food and take control of their health! And this means work within the food ecosystem to make clean, healthy alternatives easily accessible and the norm in the country. In this conversation, we speak about the impact of switching to a plant based life beyond just food. The way it uplifts our energy and emotions, how it influences our way of thinking, and inspires us to help others. We also discuss the need to prioritise women’s health, the great need to create positive change in the food eco system so everyone can access healthy food, the beautiful way the vegan and health food movement has been growing, and so much more. Visit this episode's webpage to read about one of my earliest memories of Manasa, our parallel journeys, and also see the weight lifting photograph I mentioned on the episode:  https://www.veganosaurus.com/manasa-rajan-episode-58

57: Living Outside The Box with Shivya Nath
The thing I love most about podcasting is getting to have meaningful connections with a bunch of awesome folks! In the year (and few months) since The Feel Good Factor was launched, I’ve been able to reach out to so many people whose unique voice and message I admire, and invite them to have a conversation with me on the show. This interview with @shivya is one of the most enjoyable exchanges I’ve had the privilege to experience. Shivya is all about thinking and living outside the box. She’s a proponent of breaking norms and forging your own path in life. And through her work she inspires others to do the same. I loved how easily we were able to converse with each other and smoothly navigate multiple topics. If we hadn’t had internet issues on the day of the recording, I think we might’ve gone on chatting for an additional hour. haha We discussed: Life as a digital nomad Solo travel stories Our creative processes Developing your voice as a writer Balancing authenticity with privacy Feeling financially secure as a freelancer (especially in these uncertain times) The Journeys project Consciously aligned collaborations What she liked about my Vegan Immersion Experience course The positive impact we can create on others through our work How to travel the world as a vegan Being “cornered” into discovering hidden skills Thinking outside the box And more… I just know you’re going to love getting to know this amazing woman!

56: How to tap into the energy of love and help someone when things are not in your control
What can you do when scary things are happening in the world and you feel helpless at the unfairness? What can you do when you want to heal someone or keep them safe, but you’re not in a position to do so? I had a different episode planned for this week, but with what’s going on right now, I felt like answers to these questions were desperately needed by all of us. So I sat down and meditated, and channeled the messages I received into a recording. I trust that this episode will help us all to create a positive impact in the world today and in the future too. Some of topics covered are: Focusing on what you can do instead of on what’s not in your control Protecting yourself from negativity Not getting attached to others reactions and opinions Raising your vibrations before taking any action The power of surrender and visualisation I’ve also included an 8 min long Visualisation exercise (from 12:00 to 20:00). Make sure to sit in a quiet place and try it out. It’ll immensely uplift your energy and feelings.

55: Abundance Mindset: The importance of investing in yourself
This short episode is all about why it’s so important to invest in yourself, especially when it comes to anything that’ll make your life easier, eliminate friction or help in your personal growth. And how to recognise the difference between impulse buying that gives you short term pleasure and spending on something that’ll keep you happier for the longer run. A few months ago, I invested in a ring light. It wasn’t even expensive, but I had kept putting off the purchase for the longest time because I kept wondering if it would be a “waste”. But when I finally did get it, it helped me create much more video content than I had before because I was not dependent on daylight anymore. Whenever inspiration strikes now, I can just sit down and start recording. The quality of my IGTV live videos and online workshops have also gone up noticeably, and this motivates me to do them more often. Now looking back, I’m like, “duh! why didn’t I buy this gadget sooner?” Haha This is just one example of the things I’ve hesitated to invest in at first, but after I did, it contributed to my life in multiple ways and paid off significantly. Mindfully investing in yourself creates a domino effect of opportunities and opens up your world. And I just had to talk about this on my show! Bottomline – if it will bring you more peace of mind, give you more time freedom, make your work smooth, result in self-improvement and knowledge upgrade, help you build meaningful connections to benefit you in the longer run…don’t hesitate to spend. Investing in your present life, your present self is just as important as saving up for your future. Episode web page with more details: https://www.veganosaurus.com/investing-in-yourself-episode-55

50: Shine your light and raise your vibe with Allison Melody of Food Heals
On this milestone episode of my show, I've interviewed my friend, mentor and inspiration, Allison Melody (@allisonmelodytv). Alli is the epitome of how shining one's own light can uplift you and set off a powerful, positive ripple effect on the world. This extra long conversation is packed with so much value! We discussed: overcoming great difficulties building and growing a business being an authentic entrepreneur who can change the world valuing your experience and efforts forgiveness letting go manifestation and SO MUCH MORE! A little over two years ago, I listened to my first episode of The Food Heals Podcast (foodhealsnation.com). It featured some very inspiring women. I can never forget that feeling of expansion I had as the conversation progressed. It felt like there was so much potential for me to tap into. I just knew my life would be irrevocably changed from that point onwards though I didn't know how. Flash forward to today, I've had the privilege of meeting All in person, attend the Food Heals Italy Retreat (the episode art photo was clicked there), and be a part of her Rise and Bloom Mastermind (https://veganosaurus.krtra.com/t/r56FUGTlmgdT) for the past year. My 2020 has been filled with so much growth and learning because I've been a part of the group. I've shared the kind of value I've found on the group in my conversation with Alli.

49: Letting Go of Something You Love
How do you know it's okay to let go of something you love? Something beautiful that's added so much value to the world. When you've poured much of your life, love and energy into something for many years, how can you move on and make peace with it? This week we announced that our restaurant of nearly eight years old will be shut down in January. It's a landmark in the Indian vegan community that has touched and changed many lives.  It's also been a huge part of me for the better part of a decade. This episode is filled with vulnerability and raw emotions. I've expressed the fear based thoughts I've experienced in connection with this decision. And I've shared how I'm finding strength to look forward to a new beginning with faith and hope. I hope it inspires you to look into your life with honesty. At your relationships, work, business...and all other aspects of your life to see what's serving you and what's holding you back. And I hope it helps you in letting go of whatever you might have lost in this past year or what you need to move on from now.

Mahathi Parashuram tells you why it's so important to make a big deal of  your "happy birthday" and celebrate it, and how that attitude of self-love extends into the rest of the year. The conversation is filled with lots of humour, mingled with so much deep, powerful advice. It's an episode that's very close to my heart because Mahathi is one of my dearest friends. We've known each other for a loooong time now and it feels great to feature someone I care so deeply about on my show. She is a mother of two, a wife, a sister, a daughter and a friend. These roles she plays mean a lot to her. Mahathi cares deeply for the people she loves. She's passionate about her work in Public Relations at Grundfos and the impact she creates through it. She is also someone who has learned to value and love herself through the years. I've seen this woman grow and thrive through so much in her life. I am proud of her and blessed to have her as my friend. Listen to her and get ready to be inspired to unapologetically put yourself first, above all else!

47: Follow your bliss and keep investing in yourself to constantly learn and grow – Raw Chef Yin
What if your heart desires to take you in a direction to achieve something seemingly impossible? Would you follow it? Chef Yin did exactly that! She studied law and worked in PR, but when she discovered raw vegan cuisine, the passion to create it was so strong it didn't matter that she had no prior experience in the food industry, she got into it with complete dedication. The fact that neither raw food nor vegan food was known in Malaysia didn't stop her either. She just knew this was a path she had to take and bravely ventured forth. Today she's an extremely popular Raw Vegan Chef in not just her country but also across the globe. In this interview she talks about her journey, experiences and the practices she follows to keep going strong. I know you're going to find her story very inspiring! I mentioned my brand new course, Vegan Immersion Experience on this episode. Here's a link if you'd like to learn more about it: https://learnwith.veganosaurus.com/vegan-immersion-experience. Episode web page: https://www.veganosaurus.com/raw-chef-yin-episode-47/ About Yin: Raw Chef Yin is Malaysia’s very own raw vegan celebrity chef, author and TEDx speaker. She has a law degree but left her jet-setting corporate job to don a chef’s jacket instead. Trained at the world’s leading raw & plant-based culinary academy, she now dedicates her time to helping others make beautiful, delicious raw vegan cuisine. Due to the worldwide lockdown which prevented her from travelling internationally, she began producing various online vegan cooking courses on ice cream, cheese, tempeh, mooncakes as well as Japanese & Korean cuisine to rave reviews. Watch her on VELICIOUS with Raw Chef Yin, Malaysia’s very first (un)cooking show or buy her one of her 5 Ebooks or attend her pop-up dining experiences.

46: Being Vegan is the Biggest Contributor to my Feel Good Factor!
I'm always talking about how to follow your happiness and practice habits that make you feel good. In this episode I wanted to share how veganism is the source of so much joy in my own life and how going vegan can deeply impact yours too. I recently created a course called Vegan Immersion Experience. It takes a holistic approach to being a happy, joyful vegan. I have spoken a bit about it on the episode. You can find more details here: https://learnwith.veganosaurus.com/vegan-immersion-experience Between this episode and the course, my intention is to inspire and guide more people to embrace this beautiful, uplifting way of life. Becoming vegan is the best decision I've made in my life and I so want you to experience its magic too! Episode's main web page/blog post: https://www.veganosaurus.com/go-vegan-be-happy-episode-46

44: Why it's absolutely important to set Clear Boundaries in all aspects of our lives
“Love yourself enough to say no to others demands on your time and energy.” When I pulled this message from my Goddess Cards Deck, it validated so much of what I’ve been saying for a few years now. The card is about Boundaries, and drawing it spurred me to speak about it with you all. Episode’s main web page: https://www.veganosaurus.com/set-clear-boundaries-episode-44/ How much of your time and energy are going into your work/business, family and other relationships on a daily basis? What’s left for self-care? And creativity? What about for just having fun and enjoying life? Just because you love your work, or enjoy any activity which involves you giving your time and energy to others, doesn’t make it eligible to be categorised as “me time”. It’s a common pit we fall into. This is why it’s so important to set clear boundaries! First the boundaries need to be defined between ourselves and everyone else, especially in our work and personal life. Then, after we’ve carved out time away from our work and other people, we need to create sub-boundaries between different aspects of the rest of our life. In this episode of The Feel Good Factor, I’ve spoken about how I’ve consciously tried to make this happen in my own life, and the immense benefits that have emerged. If you’ve been overwhelmed (especially considering the work-from-home situation we’re experiencing right now), and if the lines between different day to day activities are blurred, you really need to listen to this message! And as with many of my episodes, what I’ve shared here will especially strike a chord with small business entrepreneurs. I’m all about helping conscious entrepreneurs build and grow their business. That’s why I run my holistic Vegan Business Coaching program. I’ve learnt many things the hard way in my entrepreneurial journey. I’d like my mistakes to serve you with some valuable lessons and inspiration on what to do and what to avoid.

42: Simplify Your Life and Eliminate Procrastination
I'm a procrastinator. I have a tendency to put things off until the last moment. But there are also instances when I have so much energy and enthusiasm to get things done super quickly. Last night something made me contemplate on what makes me productive sometimes and lazy at other times. So the moment I woke up today, I recorded this episode. It's a simple thought but I believe it makes a world of difference. And I hope it helps you.

41: Get over that Imposter Syndrome, because Your Words have Great Value!
Ever wanted to do something that you thought might help others, but then hesitated because you questioned your own ability and authority? Imposter syndrome is a feeling of self-doubt. It makes you wonder what right you have to be doing anything or sharing any knowledge with the world, even though you feel called to do so. You're not alone. We all go through this at one point or another. "I'm too old to do this." "I don't have enough knowledge to talk about this." "There are so many people teaching this already." "What if others laugh at me?" If thoughts like these ever stopped you from writing/recording/posting/teaching something you felt passionate about, then it's not a co-incidence that you've stumbled upon this episode my friend. You are meant to listen to the message I've shared today.

40: Hope Elevated with Tamar Medford
Life is not necessarily easy just because you’ve overcome something. But you can use that as an experience to help other people. This is Tamar Medford's message to everyone. As you listen to Tamar share her story, you’re filled with an immense sense of hope. It intensifies your trust that at any moment you choose, you can turn your life around, as long as you have a clear intention, vision and deep commitment. Tamar talks about overcoming addiction, her book Hope Elevated, her journey into building a life that makes her happy and finding her highest purpose in helping others as a performance consultant/life coach. Link to the original blog post for this episode: https://www.veganosaurus.com/hope-elevated-tamar-40/ More about Tamar: Tamar Medford is a performance consultant, podcast host, and champion for people who suffer from addiction. Since overcoming her own 20-year battle with addiction and obesity in 2012, Tamar has dedicated her life to inspiring and empowering others to believe their positive transformation is possible too. She was inspired to start helping others and creating her podcast because she understands how difficult it can be to stay healthy and turn your life around. Tamar struggled with alcoholism and obesity until she hit her bottom. In early 2012, she let her troubled past inspire her to make some much-needed changes. Tamar realized that she could no longer do this alone and decided to ask for help. She started to take action and took responsibility for the life she had created for herself. Since then she has changed her mindset around health, taken control of her life and now wants to empower and inspire others to do the same.

34: Meditation: Releasing Blocks to Manifest Your Greatest Desires
As another powerful new moon cycle begins, I felt called to create a manifestation meditation for you. When I asked the Universe for guidance on the message I should share through this meditation, I felt a strong pull to focus on the blocks we create in the way of manifesting. All the positivity, love, abundance, success, joy, friends, happiness... everything we desire is attracted to us and is constantly flowing towards us. But often, instead of simply relaxing and receiving them, we let fear based thoughts and feelings become blocks that obstruct this flow. Through the guided imagery in this meditation practice, you will identify and melt these blocks away. Gently, powerfully and with love. I start with an introduction to explain the different kinds of blocks that we create. The actual meditation begins at 3:42 (incase you're coming back to do the meditation after the first time and would like to jump to it).

31: The Art of Tricking Yourself, Using Your Weakness to Your Advantage
A recent conversation with a friend about how we use our weaknesses to our benefit reminded me about this blog post I'd written over a decade ago. It's all about how I would push my laziness to its limit and come out of the other end to stop procrastinating and get household chores done. It made me so happy to see that something I'd written so long ago actually aligns with a lot of the messaging I share on my podcast now - loving and accepting ourselves for who we are, rewarding ourselves and celebrating even the smallest of achievements, and so much more. I had to read it out to you all. It's kind of funny that a large part of this episode is about dealing with procrastination, because it's being published a day later than usual due to... surprise surprise... my procrastination!

In this second and final part of the interview, he shares his motivation behind going through the arduous journey of climbing the mountain for the second time, what keeps him going in life after achieving his biggest dream and  his goals for the future.

More about Kuntal: Kuntal Joisher combines the distinction of being both an accomplished mountaineer and a high-end, computer science professional.

Kuntal has climbed to the top of Mt. Everest from both Nepal side (May 19th 2016), and China side (May 23rd, 2019).

In today’s conversation we get to know all about Kuntal’s back story and inspiration. The twists and turns in his life that unexpectedly led him on his journey to becoming a passionate mountaineer.

27: Social Media Detox for Peace, Stillness and Clarity
A total disconnection from the digital world is something we all intend to do at some point, but rarely ever get around to it. Recently I took a complete day off without even turning on the internet on my phone. No social media, no emails, no messages... IT. FELT. AMAZING. I knew I had to share the experience with you all.

26: Are You Using Your Emotional Currency to Your Advantage?
Our thoughts and feelings are immensely powerful tools. We can use them to attract and create the life that we desire. But often, we end up throwing them away on people and situations that don't deserve them. In this episode, I've shared my thoughts on how we tend to waste our precious energy on past hurts, and how we can turn things around to become strong magnets for good things. Because feeling good is the key to manifestation. Also, I mentioned Gourmet Garden while sharing my lockdown experience.

10: Valuing Yourself - for Conscious Entrepreneurs and Everyone Else
Self-worth equals net-worth. Do you charge deservingly for your products, services, and contribution to society? In this episode, I share the story of how when we let go of the guilt of “affordability” and started to value our foods, specialty products and services properly, it helped our vegan restaurant grown, gain more support and appreciation. And we ended up being in a position to do significantly more to further the cause we set out to support in the first place. Though the story focuses on conscious entrepreneurship, it is just as applicable to artists, professionals and anyone at all who is earning money. Value your offerings, and others will value them too.

As an entrepreneur, it’s natural to want to work very hard to make your business successful. But without proper breaks to rest and rejuvenate, it’s easy to end up overworking and burning out.

2: Meditation: Super Joyful Morning Intention
A quick guided meditation to begin your day on a happy, positive, high note. It evokes the energies of gratitude and love, and helps you set the intention for a day you can really look forward to. The best time to listen to it is first thing in the morning as soon as you wake up, before you get out of bed. But if you need a burst of happy energy at any point during the day, this meditation can be practiced then too.

1: An Introduction to The Feel Good Factor with Susmitha Veganosaurus
Welcome! This episode is a quick introduction into what The Feel Good Factor is all about and the main reason I’ve started this podcast. Looking forward to this exciting, fun journey with you. Transcription: "Hello, hello, hello! I'm so excited to be here. Welcome to the first episode of The Feel Good Factor. My name is Susmitha Veganosaurus, and this is a podcast about finding things that trigger good feelings, and pursuing them. Our biggest Dharma, our purpose on this earth, is to spread love, joy, good feelings... But this must start with self love. Because we can only truly give what we already have. Simple right? Take a moment to let that sink in. We can only truly give what we already have. When we are deeply happy. The natural progression of that happiness is to overflow and go out into the world. Strengthen your inner light, and it will automatically shine out into the world and uplift everyone around you. This podcast will have talks, interviews, meditations, all focused on inspiring happiness and motivating you to follow your bliss. In the past couple of years, I've realised the immense importance and power of pursuing good feelings through every aspect of my life. Good feelings have to be my top priority. So as you can guess, the purpose of this podcast is going to be all about... me feeling good! *laughs* I'm going to interview people who make me happy. I'm going to record meditations, which make me feel calm and joyful. And through this whole process, I'm hoping all these good feelings will rub off on you, the listener. The Feel Good Factor is going to be my little happy place, and I'm hoping it will be yours too. Looking forward to making beautiful connections on this new journey. Thank you so much for listening to this very first, introduction episode of The Feel Good Factor. Talk to you soon. Bye."
