Effect on Emotions

  • When I was in my twenties, my worst problems were my emotions. If I would date somebody and break up with them, I would suffer for at least six months. If I loved the person, I would suffer for a year or two years.
  • When I started working with my higher self, it put me in that place of asking, why am I doing this to myself; why am I not being mindful about myself. Let go of these emotions.
  • My main focus when I was in my twenties was to really let go of my emotions. Every day at the end of the day I would do a nightly review. Why was I emotional? Who made me emotional? Now I have my clients do nightly reviews.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I do a lot of exercise. I've done the happy yoga which is a physical yoga. They really talk a lot about breathing.
  • I do pilates and my pilates teacher talks a lot about breathing.
  • I'm going to a physical therapist now for some of my arthritis and she gives me all kinds of breathing exercises.
  • Breathing is very much a part of my exercise routine.

Bullying Story

  • I was an art director in the 1960's and there were very few art directors at that time who were women.
  • Companies told me at the time that they never hire women. In my mid twenties I finally managed to get an art director's job.
  • I had to work with an account exec who was an older man in his late fifties. He said he would not work with a woman. The head of the agency told him he had to work with me.
  • The first two or three weeks he was terrible to me. He ordered me around and made me do things I didn't want to do.
  • After that I told him, you're not my boss, you're my co-worker and you don't tell me what to do in this job.
  • Then I started producing work and he liked my work. From then on we were very good friends. It was rough.

Booster Shot of Happiness; Soren Russow

December 1, 2021

Soren Russow was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) over 15 years ago at only 31 years of age. He was expecting his first child at the time (he now has three amazing daughters), he was playing competitive beach volleyball and eating well. Why did this happen? Would he be taking pharmaceuticals for the rest of his life?
Soren made a decision to tackle this condition in a natural way and become a guinea pig of sorts. Through his research and experimentation, he has found great results in easing his A-fib and is empowered to share his findings with others.
Through harnessing his story and results, Soren has shared his transformation with many people at various conferences online and in-person. He made it to the District Public Speaking Championships (Toastmasters International Speech Contest) three years in a row with this powerful message.
Recently, Soren has become a Transformational Coach helping those with A-Fib discover natural solutions to transition from overwhelm around their A-Fib condition to living with more vitality and ease.

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness really helps my emotions because when you look at something and you go, oh my gosh, I can't believe someone did that, and you start to judge and go into this whole story, and then you redefine that thought.
  • Then what happens is, it turns you from kind of a depressed state to more of an elated state of mind. That switch can happen so quickly but it takes awareness and consciousness of where that's happening.
  • Being able to analyze your thoughts and be able to redefine them, has made a huge shift.
  • Marcy Shimoff, who wrote Happy For No Reason, talks about the happiness set-point. So ultimately, we want to increase our happiness set-point. We all have a happiness set-point but it can be adjusted and moved up but that takes time and that takes awareness.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing helps me access the now or the present moment. One of my favorite writers is Eckhart Tolle, and The Power of Now is a fantastic book.
  • When you just focus on breathing and take the time to consciously breathe, you're not thinking about all those things. You're just right here, in the present moment. That's where breathing, and then meditation, when you go into deep breathing for a long period of time, you start to allow yourself to just be.
  • We're called human beings, after all, and sometimes I think we should be called human doings because we put such a value on the doing. We need to focus on the being as well.

Bullying Story

  • When I was around 13, in grade 8, I had a really rough year. I ended up having to change schools. Both of my parents had lost their jobs during the recession. This was in the early 80s.
  • I just had one pair of shorts, one pair of pants, a t-shirt, a sweater and I was going to a school where there were a lot of rich kids. They started to bully me a lot. I'm almost 6′ 3″ now, but I was the shortest in my class in grade 8.
  • They would say nasty things to me and they would stuff me in lockers and lock the lockers so I would be in darkness for a couple hours. It was awful.
  • One time I was attacked by two guys in my class and they pushed me over, close to this creek when I was on my way home. One of them jumped on me and the other one pulled off my shirt. The other one started to twist my nipple. It's called purple nurple; they twisted it so much that it started to turn purple.
  • I was also thrown in garbage cans and rolled down the hallways of the school. I got through the school year with a lot of difficulty.
  • I really could have used laughter at that time. I suppressed my tears. I was playing soccer at the time. My father was the type of person who said, “be tough”. A lot of the time I was suppressing my emotions, so laughter would have been very useful for me.

Color Is An Energy Vitamin

Color Is An Energy Vitamin

November 28, 2021

Color is the topic today. Did you know that color is an energy vitamin? I found that sentence in the book, Feel Better In Five Minutes by Amanda Hainline. And if you've been listening to the show, you know that she was my last episode. I wanted to talk about this whole idea of color because this sentence, ‘Color Is An Energy Vitamin’ is the title of one of the chapters in Amanda Hainline’s book.

I interviewed and released Amanda’s interview on Thanksgiving Day in the US. I noticed the episode got quite a few downloads, but I think it's worthy of even more. You can listen to the episode here: www.MindfulnessMode.com/713.

Amanda is so vibrant, so upbeat, and so knowledgeable about many things when it comes to gaining control over your emotions and feeling better. After all, feeling better, has everything to do with our emotions. That's why I wanted to talk to you about this topic of color and how it can affect us.

Colors For Energy

Did you know that colors correlate to different emotions? We are naturally drawn to colors that benefit us energetically. Some of us benefit from bright, vibrant colors, and some of us are naturally drawn to the more muted tones. Colors can be used in healing. I encourage you to get Amanda’s book, Feel Better In Five Minutes, because it has so much interesting content about learning to deal with your emotions. The subtitle of the book is, ‘An Empowering Guide To Gain Control Over Your Emotions.

Clothing Choices

Dressing with certain colors can help your mood. Observe your mood when you're around certain colors. I am well aware that for me, there are certain colors that make me feel really upbeat, and energetic, and other colors that sort of drag me down. Take the next few days and think about what colors empower you, what colors agitate you, what colors drain energy from you. Pay attention to what colors you're naturally drawn to and then begin to surround yourself with those colors.

A Mug?

When you identify the colors that make you feel good, get a cup or a mug in that color and drink from it. Eating foods of that color will incorporate that color into your body. Amanda also said that sunlight is a great way to get the full spectrum of color into your energy system and clear your energy. I think it's such an interesting concept that color is an energy vitamin. Because even though I never thought of it that way before I realized that yes, color is an energy vitamin.

Win With Color

Because color is such a powerful tool and holds the energetic vibrations of emotions, it makes sense that we should use it to our advantage whenever possible, like the clothes we wear. She says it's important to note that sometimes you may need a color that does not look particularly great on you. And so if this is the case, wear that color as a small accessory, or a belt or shoes or whatever.

A Chill Day?

Think about what you have to do during your day. Is there an important meeting on your calendar? Or are you having a chill day? Take stock of how you're feeling? Are you confident, bold, depressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Refer to the color and emotions charts that she has included in this book to see what fits you best. If you're having a big meeting and feel like you're lacking confidence, try wearing something red or orange to bring on the power to boost you.

Relax With Color

If you are relaxing after a long week, cuddle up in some soft off white, pink or grey loungewear for the morning. If you're not sure what colors to wear, just open up your closet and see what colors you're attracted to that day and let your intuition guide you. Again, colors correlate to different emotions. The book includes a chart of all the different colors and how they correlate to different emotions.

Color Charts

‘Feel Better In Five Minutes’ has QR codes because there are some charts and some different kinds of images that she was not able to include in the book, so she's included QR codes. You can simply aim your device at the QR codes and you’ll see the charts and images that are not included in the book.

Vibrancy

When I started talking to Amanda at the interview time, I noticed right away that she was just as vibrant as she appeared on the front cover of her book. So again, her book is called feel better in five minutes: An Empowering guide to gain control over your emotions. Use these suggestions so you can feel better, get more energy, and feel more calm. So thanks again for listening to mindfulness mode. Bye now.

  • Sara Blakely

Effect on Emotions

  • I used to feel that I was a victim of my emotions. I carried it as part of my identity, for example, I am depressed, I am anxious.
  • Now when I'm experiencing an emotion, actually I am grateful for it because this shows me that it's linked to something deeper.
  • I will go into my emotional state and work on understanding what that emotion is connected to.
  • Then I will start working on the underlying trauma or cause of that emotional state. This is true especially if I realize I am over-exaggerating my reaction to something.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is one of those things that's very powerful because it supersedes or interjects itself into your body and into your mindset.
  • I suggest doing intentional breathing, a deep breath into your belly, and breathing out, and focus on that for mindfulness.
  • You can focus on breathing in calm energy and breathing out anxious energy, or breathing in happy energy and breathing out depressed energy.
  • This is a very good way to come back to center and come back to focus because it takes your mind off of all other extraneous things that may be distracting you.

Bullying Story

  • I wasn't usually at the brunt of being bullied. It was more feeling like I was left out a lot of times. Having developed a better sense of self when I was younger, if I'd had some kind of support, it would have been wonderful.
  • When my youngest son was in first or second grade, there was a girl who was picking on him and he was really angry about it. He said, “I told the teacher and she won't listen because she's grown and I'm just a boy.”
  • There was this whole dynamic that the teacher was just not understanding what was going on.
  • I told him, “there's a reason that she's acting that way towards you. This is not about you, it's about what she's going through in her life. It's about her misery.”
  • I said, “what she's feeling inside is so much harder for her than what she's giving to you, so you need to think about that. When she's mean to you, think, she must be really going through something.”
  • He said that he got to where he could talk to her and he said, “mom, I found out that her parents were getting divorced. She was really angry because her mom was living with somebody else and she missed her dad.”
  • He said, “I understand now”.

Embracing The Peace Process

Embracing The Peace Process

November 21, 2021

The more we can learn to deal with our emotions, the more we can understand about this part of who we are. I've just attended a 4-day event and I want to share it with you, at least one aspect of the event. This was a four day intensive virtual event with Christian Mickelson, a powerful leader who's helps people to be incredible coaches. The event was called Instant Miracle Mastery and one of the skills we learned is called The Peace Process. This process has changed lives, and it has brought a lot of calmness to people and helped them resolve conflicts and challenges in their lives. During the event, we learned four specific techniques to use to help people, and the one I am going to focus on today is The Peace Process. It can help you resolve some of the difficulties in life; some of the, the conflicts or mind blocks that are holding you back.

iTunes / Stitcher / Podbean / Overcast / Spotify

One Technique

There were 430 people at the event and after Christian Mickelsen taught us the skills that we needed to know, we broke out into small breakout sessions to practice with each other. He demonstrated how to use the techniques that he taught.  We watched, listened, took notes, and then practiced in a breakout session with three, four or five people. I felt so in alignment with The Peace Process and so that's why I've decided to focus specifically on that one tool for this podcast episode. I will share with you seven details about the peace process that I thought would be meaningful for you.

5 Aspects of The Peace Process

  1. Yourself or Others
  2. Giving Space
  3. Listening
  4. Natural and Straight-forward
  5. Easy To Learn
  6. KISS – Keep It Simple
  7. Emotions

More Details

1. Once you learn the peace process, you can do this technique with yourself. Or you can do it with others. As you know, I do hypnosis with people to help them and I also do self hypnosis. This method is not hypnosis; it's different. But it was very interesting to know that, as with hypnosis, we can use this technique on ourselves or on others . At the event we practiced with other people. I haven't had a lot of time to use this technique with myself but I will be doing that. It was really quite incredible how much peace and resolution people in these breakout sessions were able to experience.

2. The second point I want to share with you is that this involves giving space to whatever issue you have. This process helps simplify the issue and make it more clear. The Peace Process will help the issue you're dealing with become less overwhelming and less complicated

3. Listening is a very important part of The Peace Process. When you sit down with a friend, maybe you're just sitting down to have a coffee, or to talk, I'm sure you know that, the more you tune into your friend and what they are saying, the more you will connect as a friend. The value of your time together will increase depending on each of your listening skills. Truly, I think that throughout life, we can continue and continue to learn to be better listeners. I know that I've been working on being a good listener for most of my life.

4. The Peace Process feels natural, straightforward, and comfortable. If you have a coach, or even if you're sitting down with a friend, I think most of us want to have a natural, comfortable conversation. That's one of the things I loved about the peace process. It felt natural, straightforward, and comfortable.

5. It was easy to learn. Christian made it that way because he's been teaching for a very long time, and he has the skill of presenting concepts in a straightforward way and offering them to participants so they are easy to understand and simple to digest. Like I mentioned, being a great listener and the skill of giving space is a big part of The Peace Process.

6. The simple aspect of this technique is why so many of the people I talked to truly appreciated The Peace Process. I personally think, as human beings, we tend to complicate many aspects of life. I know I have that tendency. We tend to think that the most valuable things are difficult to learn, or they're complicated, or they're expensive. With The Peace Process, the more you can understand it's simplicity, the more you can understand it's power and capability.

7. Emotions and learning to embrace emotions is part of the power of The Peace Process. Dealing with emotions can be difficult and sometimes scary, but this technique can help you feel calm about your emotions. In the past there were times when I didn't know what to do with my emotions. Fear and anger were challenging to deal with at times. Sometimes they would freak me out or I wondered what to do with these feelings. When I was younger, I was more inclined to push my emotions down and pretend they didn't exist. Sometimes I would watch a TV program, eat food, or do something to take my mind away from my emotions. I don't know if you're anything like me, but from my coaching I know that a lot of people don't know how to cope with emotions.

The Peace Process helps you move through whatever it is that you're experiencing. There was so much more I could share with you about this event, but I just wanted to keep today's today's episode straight forward and that's why I'm just focusing on one of the skills we learned.

  • Master Bojong Gede

Effect on Emotions

  • In the early stages, people think they are their emotions. Every time something tips us one way or the other, when we are in that reactionary consciousness, I look at it like an emotional pinball on a pinball machine from years ago.
  • After several decades of meditating and doing the Tai Chi Gong art, you realize that emotions are like the wind; they flow through you and out of you.
  • Sometimes they stem from things you were doing and sometimes they stem from other people that you're actually picking up on.
  • One of the most profound things that you learn in the early training of Tai Chi Gong is that a human being has the ability to feel beyond their physicalness

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Praying with prayer beads and learning to breathe basic energy is at the base of everything that we do. That was handed down from the ancient teachings.
  • What we learn is that, everybody knows that they are born of the water and they have their physical umbilical cord cut, we actually have what is referred to as the psychic umbilical cord. It's about an inch to 2 inches higher than our physical one.
  • Many talks and scriptures focus on breathing in that area. The moment that energy starts to feed the vortex of the chakras and they stimulate the spokes that come out of the chakras called the nadas, which is sanskrit for spokes, everything changes.
  • When we hit puberty, what puts us into this metaphysical second birth, or the wakening of the kundalini, is the pranayama of learning to breathe energy instead of just oxygen. It changes everything.

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has radically affected how I experience my emotions because awareness for me, is the foundation of peace.
  • If I am triggered by something or if I'm reactive, I know that I'm coming from an old primal place, usually stemming from my childhood that has nothing to do with current reality.
  • If I take a pause and a deep breath, and am mindful, I most often can calm myself down and understand that what's in the past is in the past. It's not really happening now.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is how we regulate our nervous system.
  • It's how we escape the fight or flight mode where we feel like we're in danger. So I breathe when I'm anxious.
  • I breath consciously before I enter a business conversation and I breathe especially when I'm challenged by my children. It keeps me really grounded and gives me perspective.

Suggested Resources

  • Book: n/a
  • App: I don't use apps. I would start by looking around you and recognizing where you really are.

Role of Mindfulness in Your Singing

  • I've had to get out of my mind to sing and to really express. As a vocalist, I was doing studio work for a long time where perfection is a requirement and you can't be off-key, you can't be pitchy.
  • I found that the harder I tried and the more concerned I was about hitting a note, usually the more skewed that note was and it would be slightly off.
  • That's because I was too much in my head. What I found is that you practice and practice and practice so that the moment you're on stage, or the moment you're recording live, you can let go and trust that your body has that note.
  • I think meditation is very similar in the sense that we're getting out of our head. We're getting out of our own way. We're getting out of our mind and we're accessing the part of us that already knows.
  • There's no note in any song I've been given that I can't hit. It's the fear that I can't hit the note that obscures my ability to execute.

You can use mindfulness to help your motivation level. Today I’m sharing 5 tricks you can use to help you with motivation. Here’s an example. I bought some tulip and daffodil bulbs and although I've never planted anything like that before, I always think these flowers look amazing in the Springtime, especially after a long winter of cold temperature along with the kinds snow and ice. Tulips and daffodils always cheer me up when I see them in front of someone’s house or in a park. So when I was in Home Depot or Lowe's I saw these bulbs and decided to buy them. They've been in my car for a week or more and I started thinking, if I don't plant these, it is going to be too late.

Book Writing Challenges

  • Freestyle talking about things like we're doing here on the show is really easy compared to writing. When you talk you use different inflections, tone, and visual cues to get your point across.
  • If you were to take this conversation and transcribe it, it would look a little messy with a lot of run-on sentences, and umms and buts. My partner, Karen, is a speech therapist. She is very concise in her speech and I'm very verbose. Thank goodness she was available to help me with the editing because she knows me so well.
  • When Karen first started reading it she said, “you're the king of embedded clauses”. That's a story within a story within a story.
  • It's a relatively short book (100 pages), and it took a lot of time and energy to get all the ideas out.

Feedback From The Book

  • I've receive a lot of positive feedback. When I receive feedback it warms me in the heart the way nothing else can.
  • The book was names as one of the top books to ‘Take You From Surviving To Thriving in 2021' on Thrive Global. It was an honor to be named with a bunch of other great authors.
  • What's great about a book is that a hundred years from now someone can pick it up and it can impact their life. I love the ripple effect that it can create.

Memory From The Positive Head Podcast

  • An early guest, Dr. Eben Alexander wrote a book called Proof of Heaven. He was a Harvard neurosurgeon and got a lot of attention because he went from one day being healthy, to the next day being in a coma from meningitis.
  • His brain was being destroyed by this virus. After a week they said he was too far gone, there's nothing we can do, pull the plug. They did pull the plug and he miraculously came back.
  • All he remembered at first was his week journey on the other side. In this case it seemed like time was not a factor. He was shown how time and the universe was structured. It's a fascinating account. It got a lot of attention and Oprah had him on her show.
