Woman’s advocate and specialists Leslie Peter’s RN has a very interesting perspective on the topic of “Adverse Childhood Experiences”.  Here experience is a direct result of being the victim from childhood abuse from her father as a child,  as well as counseling thousands of women who have been the victims of childhood abuse.

Leslie has worked with women in impoverished communities as an registered nurse in a hospital, and as she would question these women upon admission to the hospital she heard and saw first hand how much of a problem “Adverse Childhood Experiences” were affecting these women from being able to extract themselves from poverty.  The condition also has adverse effects on their mental and physical health as well as  a very challenging problem to deal with.  It is difficult at best for these women to shift their psychological mindset so that they can extract themselves from being stuck in this insidious cycle.

I took this opportunity to have a very open and frank dialogue about “Adverse Childhood Experiences” If you have been a victim of Adverse Childhood Experiences then I would recommend that you listen to my interview with one of the foremost experts in the field.  If you would like to learn more you might want to click here to be directed to as study commissioned by Kaiser and the CDC.

I know that many of us know the importance of defining and living our purpose, but how many of us really do the work required to define and live our purposes?  I believe that it can be challenging to prevent the inertia from setting in because we are creatures of habit.  We get comfortable with our current situation and year in and year out we just keep doing the same things and wonder why things have not changed.

I know from personal experience that embracing our fears and getting out of our comfort zone requires grit, determination and a willingness to change.  We need to embrace change and do it with zest.

If you are willing to take some risk and step out of your comfort zone as you set your goals for 2018, then this podcast recording with Craig Filek the founder of Purpose Mapping is especially for you.

Taking the spiritual journey is about finding the place you feel most at home.  I frequently believe that people on the journey have to experience many different spiritual paths before they ever find their true home.  Once you find it, you will know it–for you will feel comfortable and alive with all sentient beings around you and with the Universe.

In my interview with author Dani Antman about her new book “Wired for God-Adventures of a Jewish Yogi“, you will get to learn from someone who has found her home and has used the deep spiritual understandings to help heal others. When the Judaism from her childhood did not satisfy her spiritual awakenings she went on a path that included yoga, energy healing, and the Kabbalah to help her make a personal spiritual transformation.

A healing crisis, misplaced trust, and a failed marriage intensify her desire for a teacher who can lead her to self-realization. Dani’s prayers are answered in the form of a realized adept, a Swami from the fairway shores of Rishikesh, India, who initiates her in his lineage of Kundalini Science, the study of the Divine force within every human being that is the initiator of spiritual growth.

Dani has taken her own spiritual path from mystical Judaism through Kundalini Science and back again. Dani story is inspirational and provides the reader with true insights for all spiritual seekers.  If you want to learn more about Dani’s new book “Wired for God” please click here to go to her website or you can connect with her on Facebook by clicking here.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful interview with Dani Antman author of “Wired for God“.

I just interviewed author Lynn Robinson the author of a new book entitled ” Put Your Intuition to Work“.  I personally have been on a mission to find out as much as possible about how our intuition works, and in the process have found some great author and thought leaders with tremendous knowledge about the topic.

Lynn Robinson is one of those authors and her new book “Put Your Intuition To Work” is a book that provides the reader with greater insights into tapping into their intuition, and very importantly how to apply your insights at work.   As Lynn states in the book ” Your intuition is your inner compass. It delivers the message that you need to head in a new direction and shows you the best to get there. However, sometimes it’s hard to get started.  Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, when through many transitions in life.  He said, “When one door closes, another opens: but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we don’t see the one that has opened for us.”

Are you having a challenge seeing the open door, or getting in touch with your intuition.  Are you asking your intuition questions and waiting for guidance?

If not you will want to read ” Put Your Intuition to Work“.   This book provides inspiring stories, techniques, and practices that will help you open up your intuition so you can more easily listen, feel or see what your intuition is guiding you to do.   If you get that gut feeling about something take the time to do something about it, don’t ignore this sign.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with an author that has valuable insights to impart about tapping your intuition.

Do you feel like you are on autopilot? Just going through the motions-like life is just a blur of commuting to work, calendar event and obligations.  If so then listen up.  I recently interviewed Chris Bartz-Brown the author of a new book entitled ” Wake Up-A Handbook to Living in the Here and Now“.

This is not only a fantastic book, but the book design is exceptional, it really is a handbook–please feel free to take notes on the pages provided.  Chris has provided 54 playful strategies to help the readers snap out of autopilot.  We discussed several playful strategies in our interview together, example “Kill your Television”.  As Chris states, a little television is not a bad thing, but a lot of television wastes our time and our life. What would be the payoff for watching less television?  What else could you do to entertain yourself, read a book, take a walk, exercise, meditate?   All the options seem better than watching television.

How about the idea of noticing what you notice. Most of us are in such a hurry that we infrequently notice the little things in life.  How about carrying a pen or pencil with some paper and just start writing down what you notice? These things could be people, conversations, buildings, articles or a fleeting glance from someone in a passing bus. It doesn’t matter what you find interesting; it only matters that you notice it.  So what is the payoff of this new activity, becoming more sensitized to the world in which we live and as a result enjoying a heightened sense of connectedness and vitality.

Chris’s new book “Wake-Up” is a great easy read with lots of strategies for changing your habits and behavior for the better. If you want to learn more about the book and Chris please click here to be directed to Chris’s website.  

I hope you enjoy this lively interview with author Chris Bartz-Brown.

Many of us are guilty of trapping ourselves in the web of negative self-talk. The not-good-enough, self-doubt cycles that many of us cope with on a daily basis. We know its detrimental, but what are we doing to stop insidious cycle of negative self-talk? How do we reduce this thinking quickly and replace it with a positive affirmative monologue?

In my interview with author and coach, Gary John Bishop we talk his new book entitled “Unfu*ck Yourself-Get Out Of Your Head and Into Your Life“. This book is an easy read packed with practical advice on creating more success and abundance in your life and quieting the pesky self-doubt. Over the years, Gary has coached thousands of individuals from entrepreneurs, athletes, professionals and creatives. Gary’s philosophy has yielded a high success rates by leading individuals down the road to replacing old negative self-talk with positive thoughts and sustaining this growth and potential.

Gary states that “If human emotions largely result from thinking, then one way to appreciably control one’s feelings is by controlling one’s thoughts—or by changing the internalized sentences, or self-talk, with which one largely created the feeling in the first place.” Gary believes the answers we are seeking lie within ourselves, but we must be open to finding these answers and believe in our guiding voice.

If you feel like something unspoken is holding you back from abundance and reaching ultimate success, then give Gary John Bishop a listen! If you are interested in knowing more about Gary please click here for his website.

We have all procrastinated getting something completed–it could be our taxes, getting that medical exam or just fixing our car.  No matter what we procrastinate about there is an emotion attached to our procrastination.

In my recent interview with psychologist and author Mary Lamia, the author of a new book entitled “What Motivates Getting Things Done” Mary reveals what really gets in the way of us completing things in our life that need to get done.

As Mary states in the book “An emotion will be activated when it is triggered by a stimulus–an event, as situation, a thing, or the action of another person.  It’s common vernacular these days to claim something has ‘triggered’ you, implying something has happened that has messed you up emotionally because it has activated an emotion based on an unpleasant emotional memory.  Mary breaks us down into two types, deadline-driven procrastinators, and task-driven non-procrastinators and she explains the differences between these two types.

If you are interested in really delving into what motivates us to get things done, or what effects us from being driven to get anything done then I recommend that you listen to my interview with Mary Lamia the author of “What Motivates Getting Things Done“.  If you want to learn more about Mary you can visit her website by clicking here.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with Mary Lamia about her new book “What Motivates Getting Things Done“.

When was the last time you had a strong gut feeling about something, or that little voice inside was whispering in your ear?  How would you like to access that intuition on demand?

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing author Lisa K about her new book entitled “Intuition on Demand-A Step by Step Guide to Powerful Intuition You Can Trust“.  In our interview together Lisa provides easy to use techniques that when practiced will allow you to access your intuition more frequently and with greater levels of reliability.   Lisa has spent years studying intuition and her education and training prior to being passionate about intuition was science and engineering-interesting background for someone interested in intuition.

Lisa definition of intuition is ” a knowing without knowing how you know it”.  Very short, simple and accurate.  Lisa has ten (10) secrets to accessing intuition and they are 1) Be Relaxed and Be Open  2) No Figuring it Out, No Judging the Answers 3) Fragments and Symbols 4) Signs Outside of You 5) Believing=Power 6) Outside Tools 7) Trigger Your Intuition by Asking 8) You Get What You Get and You Don’t Get Upset 9) Ask for Clarity 10) Where’s the Bathroom.  Now while this is a little out of context, I wanted to give you an idea of what Lisa reveals in our interview and throughout her book.
