Ep43 - The Stories We Tell

Our lives are built on the stories we tell one another, and our stories are alive. They keep us alive too. The lessons that every story contains depends on what you learn along the way. Each generation that came before us heard stories that gave them a reason to move on in the life with a sense of purpose. And each generation that will come after us will live their lives based on the stories that our lives have to teach them. How we live our lives will determine how interesting and how...


Ep42 - You Eat What You Are

We have all said the phrase "you are what you eat", but have we thought about the opposite; "you eat what you are"? Nutrition goes way beyond just understanding carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. We must understand the nature of the food we eat and what it is capable of based on its own energetic. We must also learn to create a peak state within ourselves and use food to further nourish this state to allow us to continuously thrive here! If you are interested in learning more, then WE ARE...


Ep41 - The 90-Second Rule

It only takes 90 seconds for us to experience an emotion physiologically. After that, we make a choice, an important choice! The decision of what emotional state we will be in defines the quality of each moment we will experience. Choose upset? You'll stay there (and hate it!). Choose happiness? You'll stay there (and love it!). When we are able to take ownership of and responsibility for our emotions and what comes after them, then we have made the decision to empower ourselves to live a...

Ep40 - Have a Little Faith

Life is chock full of challenges, hard times, and uncertainty. We are constantly having our level of patience tested, and we are taught what it means to have faith. But there are times when we all forget its importance and tend to allow the stress in our lives to overwhelm us and drive us to make regrettable decisions. If we can remember, even in the toughest times, to have a little (or a lot) of faith and keep pushing onward, they we can discover not only what we are capable of, we can...

Do you have a plan for tomorrow? How about for the next stage of your life? Do you know exactly HOW to plan?

This podcast focuses on how to plan and what are the most important pieces people forget...


Ep33 - Burning Your Candle at Both Ends

Burning your candle at both ends is something that will ultimately destroy your health and affect your livelihood. That is usually why August is the most popular month to take vacation and enjoy the beautiful weather in the US. We think that we have worked so hard and we deserve a break. This dangerous approach to life needs to be transformed and a new approach needs to be created. In this podcast, we examine the practice of burning your candle at both ends and discuss ways to move towards...


Ep32 - Break Your Patterns

Patterns are something we develop over the course of our lives. They form our speech, our emotions, our movement, our decisions, and every other aspect of our lives. Some patterns are constructive, but for many, some patterns are destructive.

It is time to remember that you are meant to be in control. Listen to this podcast...

Ep30 - The Essence of Tai Chi

Tai Chi is commonly thought of as an exercise that is usually practiced by Chinese people in a park. We recognize it for its health benefits; its success in stress relief; and occasionally its place as a martial art. But we have yet to understand the true essence of the art. In this podcast, I focus on the essence from a personal perspective to give new meaning to what Tai Chi practice can do for you. Tai Chi is more than an exercise. It has the potential to help you understand who you are...


Ep29 - The Fastest Way to Master Your Life

We are all beginners in life at some point. What KIND of beginner determines how much success you will experience.

Ep27 - How To Be a Positive Person (Not Annoyingly Positive)

Being positive is a learned practice. It comes through repetitive observation of reality, not from ignoring it and claiming everything is always positive. Annoyingly positive people are, most of the time, ignorant of the reality of situations in their lives. When we can grasp that each moment contains something to learn, something to honor, and something that we can transform, then we can truly be guided towards living a positive life. The ability to transform any situation into one charged...
