410 Master of Mindfulness; Daniel Gutierrez

March 18, 2019

Daniel Gutierrez is a consultant, author, and motivational speaker. He was once a high-powered executive who graced the covers of Latin Business, Cypen and Color Magazines, but then Daniel realized that there was more to success than a 7-figure earning potential. Daniel mastered his outer game, but his intuition told him that to feel fulfilled, he must also master his inner game. Because of this, at the height of his career, Daniel left it all behind and dedicated the next chapter of his life to becoming a Master of Mindfulness. During the past 10 years, Daniel has led nearly 30 quests to the heights of the Machu Picchu, the depths of the Amazon and the top of the Himalayas. Now, Daniel has been featured in the documentary Luminous World Views as one of eighteen world-renowned thought leaders and has even appeared as a special guest at Carnegie Hall.

  • My mother

Effect on Emotions

  • Regarding emotions, mindfulness has been a great staple for me because it allows me, like right now, I'm bringing myself back into the present moment. It's okay to feel that, I would say okay to go there, not okay to stay.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is important for me because I think it's important when you're in relation with other humans that before you act, you breathe just, that's it.
  • Just breathe and what it does, it takes the charge out of the situation that you're in. It gets you to clear a little bit, to think better. So breathing has definitely been a way for me to manage my life and relationships in a lot better way.

  • A gentleman who first taught me transcendental meditation years ago.

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness helps me a ton with my emotions. The one thing you understand about emotions is that it passes. When you're mindful of it, you don't necessarily have to act on that emotion. You can just kind of be like, okay, there's that thing that I'm feeling. Let's breathe through it and it will pass. Then I'll see if I still want to act on it from a place of clarity and presence.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is constant. It totally changes my perspective. I breathe all the time. I don't know if you noticed when you ask me a question, I'll take a deep breath. It really helps with centering my thoughts and just kind of keeping everything grounded.

  • Eckhart Tolle, Author of The Power of Now

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has made me less irritable and less reactive. Definitely that wasn't the case previously. Throughout much of my twenties, I was the type of person who would respond with an involuntary reaction rather than with voluntary reason. That manifested itself in relationships with girlfriends and family. I would be more inclined to snap rather than to have a conversation.
  • Nowadays, mindfulness is like a muscle, the more you train it the more it becomes second nature. Now if something negative happens, I take it as an opportunity to get better. I will say, great, this happened, let's respond in a positive way and let's find a solution. That's been huge for me because it's so easy to go through life in a reactive state.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Oh yes, breathing. Yesterday I was hosting a podcast, and even though I am 311 episodes in, I always get a little bit of anxiety before a podcast episode. So before this particular episode, I went for a twenty minute walk and then I just sat in a quiet meeting room at our office and I just breathed for five minutes, deep breathing, focusing on the breath. That just brought me right back down.

Effect on Emotions

  • I probably am a bit more easy going than I used to be, because I view now this life has just being almost like a temporary stop of consciousness.
  • So if that's true, I think I still take things seriously, but there is this fall back of understanding. There's a much bigger picture going on beyond whatever small problems I have on a daily basis.
  • So I think it's really helped me rethink things that might have stressed me out or caused anxiety.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I'm much more open now to the effects of breathing, especially after seeing things like holotropic breath work, which is basically a way of inducing a psychedelic state. I haven't experienced it, but it's often talked about.
  • Also, the Wim Hoff method (www.WimHofMethod.com), that's something where, I think, everyone who does it experiences an altered state of consciousness by over-oxygenating the brain, effectively.
  • You breath heavily in and then you let the breath go, so you end up netting in more oxygen than you're letting out. And when you do that for a long time and then hold your breath, like he suggests, it's almost like a state of euphoria just from breathing.

  • My wife. She is very realistic and grounded. She helps me put my life in perspective as I think that all of us tend to lose sight a bit of our center. She has done a good job.

Effect on Emotions

  • I think without mindfulness, I couldn't do the job. I think you gotta know who you are, know what you are doing and keep in touch with reality. I think those things are part of mindfulness.
  • If there is a chance to transfer some of that mindfulness to the patients and relatives, it will be precious and I try to do that too.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I don't focus on breathing, not at all. For some reason, I don't need relaxation techniques or anything like that. I just work and it works for me. Right. My breathing is just on automatic pilot.

Effect on Emotions

  • When I was younger I definitely had a lot of anger issues and I think I attributed it to the frustration of being bullied and going through the frustration of wanting my mind to be working like everyone else's. And it wasn't.
  • And so I was constantly in a state of frustration and anger. And, I think what mindfulness and meditation has done for me is it's helped me to realize that everyone's not the same and that we all have our strengths in certain areas. And to be okay with that, to let go of needing to be like everyone else and to become more me.
  • You are the only you and that's your true power.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • I would say breath is probably the biggest for me in the meditation routine because I feel like 10 slow inhales and exhales can change anyone's mood, just in the snap of a finger. And I think that it gives more oxygen to your body, your organs work different, your whole system functions differently when you give it the oxygen that it needs.
  • We go through life in such a hustle-bustle that we forget that we're not even breathing at all. We're just kind of surviving there. And so breath is very, very powerful for altering moods and setting the tone for my meditation. It's very powerful.

Bullying Story

  • Yeah, so right off the bat, the first thing I think about is having dyslexia. I was made fun of a tremendous amount in school. In dealing with that learning disability. I took longer for tests and I had a hard time in school when I was younger.
  • The big thing was that you would read chapters and then copy those chapters to page and they wanted you to learn from that. And I was just not that kind of person. Plus I had a hard time from that transference from the book to the page. But if someone would talk about it in front of me, I would remember every single thing that they said.
  • I was very into the auditory learning. You know, basically sound and voice. Still to this day, if an actor comes on screen and if I don't see them, I can just recognize them from their voice even if it's an obscure person that was on a show from six months ago that was just like a guest appearance. That was just always the way I learned.
  • I was called dumb and stupid and just had a really hard time. Fourth grade through eighth grade, it was just really hard. I got bullied a lot and had a lot of issues where I didn't want to go to school.

402 Science and Spiritualism With Spiritual Atheist Author Nick Seneka Jankel

February 18, 2019

Nick Seneka Jankel is a Cambridge-educated scientist who, very reluctantly at first, was called to become a spiritual teacher. He struggled for many years with how to reconcile his profound experiences of the transformational power of spirituality and meditation with his belief in science and reason (and his disdain for superstitions of any kind). Realizing millions of people who identify as “spiritual not religious” – around 25% of the US population today – struggle with the same thing, he has spent the last few years writing a book that tells of his quest to unite science and wisdom into a rigorous and radical life philosophy that ensures we can heal ourselves, transform our problems and thrive in life, in love, and in leadership. Nick is not a traditional spiritual teacher and transformational coach. He has taught at the business schools of Yale & Oxford, spoken at No.10 Downing Street by invite of the Prime Minister, contributed to The Economist and The Guardian, and was a TV host on a network show for the BBC. He has also been a guest on Hay House Radio, spoken at Google HQ, headlined at Conscious Life Expo in LA and shared his ideas on science and spirituality at Aspen Ideas Festival.
