The Movement Movement

Are you sitting right now? I encourage you to stand up as you read the rest of this blog entry. Oh, and thank you for reading it.

Dr. Stefan Zavalin, our recent guest on Life Mastery Radio spoke about the prolonged effects of sitting too much. It was fascinating. He’s the author of Sit Less; Evolve your Work and Life without Compromising your Health

If you sit for:

  • Four hours you’ll experience an increase in blood pressure and blood insulin
  • Six hours you may feel increased anxiety and depression
  • Eight hours you double your risk of cardiovascular disease
  • Eleven hours you increase your chance of premature death by 40%

These are staggering statistics, and Stefan claims it’s not because you aren’t exercising enough, it’s because you’re sitting too much throughout the day.

 “If you have an active lifestyle and achieve the recommended 150 minutes a week of activity (mostly exercise) it may counteract all the sitting. But exercise is not all we should do.”

Dr. Stefan Zavalin

Dr. Zavalin encourages us to decrease our sitting time every day to less than 8 hours. He suggests the ideal solution is to stand up and move for a few minutes every half hour. It’s usually at the 30 minute mark that blood flow to your brain begins to decrease. Moving will help us be more productive, and even smarter.

Try decreasing your sit time by small increments. Just 2 minutes of movement makes a significant difference. Start there, but we really need to adapt our work and routines. In other words, do more tasks standing up rather than sitting down.”

Dr. Stefan Zavalin

On air this past Tuesday I stood to co-host the show with Todd. I used boxes to raise my laptop to eye level and enjoyed standing as I interviewed Dr. Zavalin.

Although appreciative that I jumped on to his movement, Stefan cautioned me …and you… to not make changes too quickly. Start by reducing your sit time each day 30 minutes. Increase your moving/standing time by small increments from there until you reach the goal of 8 hours or less of sitting.

If you get tired or achy you’re doing too much. It should be invigorating. There is ground to be gained when you start moving more no matter your age but move within your means. Go to the limit, then push a little further.”

Dr. Stefan Zavalin

Here are ways you can sit less and move more:

1. Walk while talking on the phone

2. Stand instead of sitting whenever it’s possible

3. Take out the trash or do other chores

4. Watch TV or eat standing up

5. Walk while meeting with clients or friends

Stefan’s TED Talk is well-worth watching. If you’re like me (and Todd) you’ll realize how easy it is to make substantial changes to your health.

Are you still standing? Good for you! Give yourself a pat on the back and move again in 30 minutes or so. Be grateful for your abilities and tell yourself, “I get to do this.”

Taking Your Power Back

If you’re like me, you’ve been in either an abusive or toxic relationship at some point. Perhaps you’re in one now. I’ve heard the terms abusive, and toxic used interchangeably. Our recent guest defines the differences between those terms.

As a Doctor of Psychology and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Homeyra Faghihi has over twenty years of experience in providing individual, family and group therapy services.

Homeyra has assisted various populations over the years and helped hundreds of clients with issues such as self-image, shame, anxiety, depression, childhood traumas, adult traumas, military sexual trauma, domestic violence, and difficult family relationships.

Her passion is to educate, coach, and empower clients as they navigate their way through persistent self-doubt and limiting core beliefs.

Facilitating empowerment workshops and providing individual coaching services allows Homeyra to assist clients with learning skills to help them take their power back.

A toxic relationship is one in which one or both partners are mean to each other. Passive-aggressive communication causes lots of drama. One or both partners in a toxic relationship may feel exhausted, drained, misunderstood, and/or resentful.

An abusive relationship is one defined in large part by fear. One partner has more power than the other and will control and manipulate the other. Threats or fear of retaliation, emotional, physical, and sexual violence; even stalking will be present in an abusive relationship.

If you are in an abusive relationship, GET SUPPORT from people you trust. This support can come from a friend, clergy, or therapist. Get in a safe place such as a domestic violence shelter. Even if you can’t leave in the moment, there are organizations which can help you start planning.”

Homeyra Faghihi

Homeyra offers a free masterclass two times a month called “Say no Without Guilt”. If you’ve left an abusive or toxic relationship, her masterclass will help you focus on ways to advocate for yourself.

Say No Without Guilt is a 75 minute group workshop. The next one is on May 2nd. Many of her clients have said:

I don’t feel alone anymore

It can be difficult for those who’ve not been in such relationships to understand why abused partners stay with the one who abuses.

Why don’t you just leave?”

Homeyra says it is very difficult to get past the shame that is prevalent with trauma. She includes a video on her website that provides reasons they stay:

Stop the Blame. Here are the Reasons you Stayed

Homeyra also offers a 12 week program called Empowerment 4 U. In 90 minutes, each week beginning on May 15th, attendees will focus on these four modules:

Unlearn the lies told about you

Uncover the differences between healthy and unhealthy relationships

Untie yourself from shame and guilt and move toward self-compassion

Upgrade your vision for your future

If there is a time to work on empowerment it is now. We must feel empowered on the inside and get control of fear.”

Getting A Pink Slip of Opportunity

Steve Garvin helps people discover their stories. He discovered the importance of his own stories through life’s lessons.

His dad was Steve’s creative inspiration. He was a Korean war vet, and although he repressed his story, his dad opened Steve’s eyes to the beauty of the world.

One day while walking on the beach together, my father went on about the colors he was seeing and the beauty of the scenery around us. I couldn’t see what dad was seeing, but I began to appreciate his artistic vision, and the depth of his perspective.”

Steve Garvin

Steve learned we can expand our own vision and see things in our own way.

Dad could make anything special just by putting his touch to it.”

Steve Garvin

Steve felt he could never compete with his creative father and therefore decided to meet and beat him in something else.

I knew numbers would allow me to shine.”

Steve Garvin

Steve’s career began in finance, numbers, and technology as a corporate accountant. Reminiscent of his childhood, Steve felt unappreciated, looked over, and belittled at work.

He began to feel such despair that suicide was the plan. On his way to the predestined place where his life would be taken, Steve heard a voice.

Don’t use a permanent solution to solve a temporary problem.”

A short time later when Steve was let go from his corporate job, he was thrilled.

I felt like doing cartwheels out the front door.

Steve Garvin

Steve began to create. He took up painting, jewelry making, and papier Mache. This pink slip of opportunity finally gave Steve permission to change his story.

He asked himself,

What is my story? What is my role in it? How do I play the best part in my own life rather than play a role in someone else’s script?

Steve would encourage you to ask those same questions of yourself.

Look at today. Stories you started when you were young are still playing. Open the theater door and pay attention to the plot. What happened in the past can give you clues to the future.

Spend time looking inwardly. Make time to reflect: What do I want? What do I want to create? What are my disappointments? My delights?”

In 2021 Steve finally held a summit he’d been considering for years. He now holds the Sing Your Heart Song Summit 3 times a year. The next one is in July.

Steve has also published Heart Notes – An Anthology of Inspiring Letter to Matters of the Heart.

Many authors have contributed parts of their stories to Steve’s book in the way of letters to an aspect of their heart.

For instance, Steve writes one letter to Money…

Dear Money,

I kind of walked out on our relationship….I think  I felt like it was your fault that things got so bad at my last place of employment.

I viewed our relationship as a bad one, and I avoided you no matter how many efforts you made to come back into my life…

I think I am in a better place now. It may even be fun to hang out some more…I will make every effort to rekindle our relationship.

You don’t have to write a book to receive the benefit of sharing your story. Steve teaches even if we write only for ourselves, our relationships are transformed, and we express ourselves more powerfully.

The most important person in your audience is the person in the mirror.”

Steve Garvin

Consider your stories. Be the leading character of your own life. Get it down on paper and heal from trauma.

Contact Steve for help.

Staying Afloat

In Ann Papayoti’s book The Gift of Shift, which is co-authored with Tracey MacDonald, you read about The Gift of Buoyancy.

I couldn’t wait to learn how to swim because then I could be with the big kids. I grew impatient with my dad as he told me I first needed to learn how to float before he’d teach me to swim.

Despite my frustration, I’m grateful for my dad. I’ve since experienced how wonderful it is to float. The sky is above us in full view. We can hear our own breath, and our own heartbeat while we float.

If we keep swimming without recharging and refreshing ourselves, we run out of energy, get fatigued, and may find ourselves in a dangerous situation. Knowing how to float can be lifesaving.”

Ann Papayoti

Ann’s book illustrates well what happens in life when we try to keep swimming without reflective floating.

When Ann and Tracey considered content for their book, they recognized the struggle many people have with self-help books. They decided a book filled with stories of life’s lessons would give the audience real value toward re-discovering their own stories.

At the end of each chapter of The Gift of Shift, there are questions which lead the reader to reflect about their own experiences.

Stop and reflect, then choose a response. Undesirable things happen to all of us, and they come with negative emotions. Creating our experience despite the circumstances is the message of the book.

Ann Papayoti

By answering the questions at the end of each story-chapter, the reader can reflect and be reminded of a strength or character trait that got them though a similar experience. Knowing lessons from the past will give you stamina to get through the current challenge, and the next one.  

Sometimes we get stuck in an old story. The Gift of Shift encourages you to rewrite your story.

Ann Papayoti

Ann and Tracey lead a monthly chapter discussion on Facebook. This is an opportunity to share your stories with others. Sometimes we hear our truth in someone else’s story, too.

One fifty-year-old reader was able to release a part of her story she’d been holding onto since high school. Her story had held her back and kept her from trusting people. She finally let go and sought for help after reading The Gift of Shift.

My favorite part of the interview with Ann was when she shared with me and Todd a story not in her book.

One July day I was in Alabama visiting my mom and walking outside to her barn. Since I was carrying a box, I didn’t see the copperhead rattle snake before it struck me.

At the medical facility nearby I was given a Tetanus shot for infection, but no antivenom. It seems copperhead rattle snakes give a warning strike containing only a small amount of venom.

I was sent home with instructions of signs to look for in the following days.

Two weeks later back in Canada (where there are no venomous snakes, and no antivenom) I began to experience neurological symptoms such as headaches and muscle aches. Then, I had cardiological problems, muscle weakness, pain throughout my body, etc.

It seemed each system of my body was being attacked in stages. At first I didn’t attribute it to the snake bite even though I reported it to several physicians.

By October, poison had been surging throughout my body for three months and I could only watch myself physically wither away.

I finally saw a Holistic healer who explained the fluid in my spine and brain was frozen, like my brain was encased in cement.

In three treatments the healer was able to literally unlock my brain and free me from constant pain.

My muscles had atrophied, and I slowly began to build back my strength and stamina. By the way, the Alabama protocols for snake bites have been changed since then. Anyone who is bitten by a snake gets antivenom asap.

Ann Papayoti

The lesson Ann learned is a beautiful metaphor we all must understand:

Harboring unforgiveness is a venom that eats you up inside. Refusing to forgive is like drinking poison and waiting for the offending person to die. Finally releasing it and unlocking forgiveness in your heart is the only cure.

What has a grip on your heart?

Are experiences coincidences or synchronicities?

Are your experiences causing you to feel negative and powerless? Or positive and powerful?

Ann and Tracey give workshops, for groups, couples, and individuals. There are events you can attend, and a newsletter you can subscribe to.

Isn’t it time you gift yourself a shift? Take time to reflectively float.


Love is the Missing Subject

Love is the missing subject in the world today. In the areas of personal growth, we must be living love, encouraging acts of kindness, and teaching ways to elevate consciousness.”

Bernardo Moya

That sums up the mission of our most recent guest, Bernardo Moya. He is a global promoter for thousands of international speakers. He feels a responsibility to bring conversations forward.

Bernardo will be hosting THE LOVE EVENT live and virtually in September 2022 streamed on The Best You TV.

Attendees to The Love Event can expect three days of speakers, solutions, panels, and forums with people searching for ways to connect, carry kindness forward, and elevate consciousness.

We will be exploring what love means to different people in diverse cultures.”

Bernardo Moya

One of the questions asked at The Love Event is how can we be kinder?

Questions are something Bernardo Moya knows a lot about. In fact, his book is titled: The Question – Find your True Purpose

The quality of your life depends on the quality of the questions you ask yourself.”

Bernardo Moya

Bernardo would suggest if we are not aware, then we are ignorant. We not only need to become more aware of our own surroundings (including the people around us); we also have responsibility to bring love and awareness to the world.

Be part of the solution and get others to be as well. This is the time for more people to come forward. The world needs more leaders and more people who care.

Bernardo Moya

There is no they. We are the they.

Stop waiting for someone else to make the changes. We must do it.”

Bernardo Moya

Blessings from Bernardo’s interview:

  • Choose to become aware or decide to be ignorant.
  • Complain less.
  • Be grateful for what our ancestors lived through.
  • Positive thoughts begin by not being negative.
  • Complainers are negative people.
  • Be grateful for the simple things you have – arms, eyes, running water, freedom, education, transportation (to name a few).
  • 6 Billion people would be happy to switch lives with you right now.

We become more grateful when mortality becomes a reality. What legacy will you leave?”

Bernardo Moya

Questions to consider (…and you know the answers already)

  • How amazing is my day going to be?
  • Why wait?
  • Why not do it now?
  • I wonder how I could…?
  • How could I become 10% kinder?
  • If I could…., what would that look like?
  • What will people say about me at the end of my life if I keep living as I am now?
  • What will people say about me at the end of my life if I lived exactly the way I wanted to?

Not everyone can invent penicillin, but we can all do something for someone else. Insignificant things will impact others in big ways.”

Bernardo Moya

Get a copy of Bernardo’s book. He is providing you with questions that will empower you, and take you places you’ve never been before. He just may help you finally live a congruent life.

It’s not too late.


From A to Qi, It’s All Feng Shui

My mind was just a little blown while interviewing this week’s guest, Jillian Rothschild-Scholar, a Feng Shui expert.

I will admit I was one of those peeps who thought Feng Shui was an effective decorating system. Jillian schooled me this week and I have a much deeper appreciation for the wisdom of this ancient method of achieving Yin and Yang in life.

In ancient times if you were sick, you’d see a doctor (probably not university trained, but more of a healer-type person). Not only would the doctor examine you physically, he or she might also go to your home to check out your Qi.

The doctor would likely determine if you had good Feng Shui. Your physical illness might be due to a misalignment with your Qi, which is energy.

Feng Shui, I learned, is guiding wisdom for your health, wealth, and relationships. It’s a support system for our lives.

Jillian provided some basics of Chinese astrology which I also was unaware of.

1. The Chinese Calendar is a 60 year cycle. You can look back at what happened 60 years ago to provide insight into what you might expect this year.

I did a little research and discovered in 1962 – sixty years ago the following historical events happened:

  • Cuban Missile Crisis (Hello. Here we are again dealing with the Soviet Union and nuclear power)
  • Flooding in the coastal areas of West Germany kills 315 and destroys the homes of about 60,000 people (This seemed significant since this year is the year of Yang Water Tiger. Jillian reports there will be huge amounts of water)
  • Super Constellation Flying Tiger Line Flight 739 disappears in the western Pacific Ocean, with all 107 aboard missing and presumed dead. (I took notice of this since this is the year of the TIGER.)
  • The Petrified Forest National Park is established in Arizona. (Because Jillian reports the Tiger carries the WOOD element of the Chinese Zodiac, this felt significant)
The Tepees at Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona

2. Qi comes in three types: form, formless, and human

3. The Three Lucks are the energy that composes who we are. Heaven, Human, and Earth luck. Heaven luck is based on the day, time, and location of your birth, and CANNOT be changed. We can, however, change our human and earth luck.

Since we cultivate our own luck, when opportunities arise we can be prepared to take advantage of the luck. Having good feng shui supports your luck.

4. The Five Elements in Chinese Wisdom are: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal. They are each a type of QI and make up everything in the universe.  Too much of one element will cause imbalance.

5. Feng shui and your Chinese Astrology chart combined will help you find your balance.

6. You can discover your personal Ba Zi Calculator here:

Discover your lucky directions. Doors, bed placement, stove, water features, and office furniture are important factors within Feng Shui. You’ll want to learn the best placement for these. Doors are the entrance point for Qi. The type of Qi we bring into our environment will influence our luck.

Living Life By Default

A Mystic is anyone on a journey to discover their source of spirituality.”

Janine Bolon

Our recent guest on Life Mastery Radio with Todd & Jackie was Janine Bolon. She is not only a Mystic as she defines it; she is a Shaman, a Sacred Clown, and a Bell Dancer. These descriptions are only a few ways to illustrate the journey Janine has been on to discover the Source of her spirituality.

Janine explains most of us are living by default, which is when we take life at status quo, live by the rules, and never question our common reality. In tribal work, mysticism is more important than the outward ceremony. Janine believes our lives should be this way.

Since a young age, Janine has always wanted to understand “the man behind the curtain”. She’s been a rule breaker when it comes to the expected ways to behave. This led her to naturally becoming a Sacred Clown and a Bell Dancer.

Although she has no genetic link to native Americans, she’s been defined by tribal leaders as “one of them” after learning Janine had been struck by lightening around the age of 9-10.

It happened on an island under clear blue skies. The Thunder Clan picked Janine, and lightening struck her. This may have marked the beginning of her mystical journey.

People ask ‘why am I here?’. They may turn to religion, folklore, or people like Joseph Campbell. Wherever you look you can find a group of like-minded people who think like you.

Janine Bolon

Janine cautions – “Start thinking outside the box, or better yet don’t think at all. Experience life. Go a little crazy.

A Hindu Guru once taught the most important quality of a devotee is not love or dedication as you might think. It’s fearlessness. Move through life with fearlessness.

I knew if I lived life in a state of fear, It would shroud me from truth.

Janine Bolon

Janine shared with us a vision she had of the creation of souls. Popping into the world were spheres of electrical light bouncing along with excitement like kids waiting in line to enter Disneyland.

Every soul comes to earth with that excitement. We are allowed to create life, mess it up, come back, and talk about it. We all wanted to be part of this adventure. There is nothing serious going on here on planet earth. Like any good stage play, we have it all.”

Janine Bolon

Janine used the metaphor of a carnival to illustrate what life should be like for all of us. There are thrilling rides, unusual sites to see, delicious foods to try, and times when we want to sit it out for a bit.

If you don’t enjoy your life, then why aren’t you changing it?

Janine Bolon

The greatest insight I received from Janine’s interview was about the people here on earth whom we don’t get along with, or who drive us crazy. Janine explains these people will be our best friends after this life. They are those who loved us before we came here and who annoy us because they want us to test our paradigms, discover who we are, and learn ways to become the best we can be. Unfortunately, we’ve all had a mind-wipe and we don’t remember them from before.

Janine knows meditation is the way we will stop living life by default. A regular practice of meditation will reintroduce us to ourselves. Three minutes a day is enough to achieve that end, and EVERYONE can meditate. It takes practice but will provide clarity about your Source.

Janine offers retreats to help you unearth who you are and dig deeper into your mystic self. She is hosting one of these retreats on April 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. It’s a special retreat to celebrate the Equinox. Learn more here: Equinox Retreat. By day three she claims you’ll have a 90-day plan pivotal to your mystic journey.

On her website ThePracticalMystics.Com you’ll find more information about Janine and her programs.

On Janine’s website you will also get her latest book, Expressing the Divine FREE in pdf form. You can also find it on Amazon.

You’ll also experience helpful content by listening to her Practical Mystic Podcast.

By mystical coincidence, just as Todd and I finished our interview with Janine, the clock read 11:11. As many of you know, 1111 by spiritual standards means “you are one with life and all that is”. It’s the signal that you should live in the light that surrounds you and experience a relationship with the Divine.

I Really Thought I Could Fly

There was a time I really thought I could fly.

Imagine you know someone who exhibits the following traits:

  • Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Talkative
  • Flight of ideas
  • Easily distracted

You might think this is a person who is driven to achieve his/her goals. You might envy the energy and positive mindset of this person. You might consider this person a little eccentric.

Would you ever imagine the person with these traits has a mental illness?

Our most recent guest was Bob Krulish, the author of When Screams Become Whispers, One Man’s Inspiring Victory Over Bipolar Disorder. Reading Bob’s book is like reading the diary of a mad man. At the same time, his memoir will connect to people who are experiencing the madness Bob has endured.

I’ve known Bob Krulish for twenty years. Since I was the executive assistant to Bob’s wife during the years before he was diagnosed with Bipolar 1, I witnessed behavior from Bob which, although unusual, would have never indicated to me he had a mental illness.

Bipolar Disorder is hereditary. In authoring the book, I realized my dad had it. A life event will turn on the gene. For me, it was when my dad left when I was 16 and I never saw him again.”

Bob Krulish

Bob always had an idea cooking. He would describe in detail how he was going to accomplish the grandiose goal he had in mind. His kids, whom I also know, would be enamored by the genius their father was and knew his success would be sure.

Bob seemed to be on top of the world, and unshy about sharing details about the big deal he just made, the house he just bought, or the money he just made. I never saw Bob have a difficult day.

I was very popular because I was a forceful, charismatic speaker. I was going to be a U.S. Senator, and I enrolled in a program to be a jet fighter pilot. I was also going to be Jack Niklaus.”

Bob Krulish

It wasn’t long after the “good days” when the curtain was pulled back, the jig was up, and Bob’s sham of a life was revealed. He lost his home, his marriage, and his kids.

Let me be very clear here – Bob was not a dishonest person. He was not a scam artist. He was not trying to hurt anyone. Bob was convinced everything he said was true. He had every intention of getting everything he set out to. He believed he was the smartest, most experienced, and most talented candidate for every situation.

From the National Alliance of Mental Illness website:

When someone rejects a diagnosis of mental illness, it’s tempting to say that he’s “in denial.” But someone with acute mental illness may not be thinking clearly enough to consciously choose denial. They may instead be experiencing “lack of insight” or “lack of awareness.” The formal medical term for this medical condition is anosognosia, from the Greek meaning “to not know a disease.

The problem was that Bob’s mental condition of Bipolar 1 had never been diagnosed. Additionally, his symptoms were exacerbated by a wrong diagnosis years before in which he was given medication that sent him into a manic state. The “disease of loss” as Bob once described Bipolar had indeed rang true.

You don’t think to yourself ‘that was a bad idea’. Instead, you think everyone else has let you down. ‘If it weren’t for that person I’d be a fighter pilot and a U.S. Senator’.”

Bob Krulish

Bob’s story is heartbreaking, but triumphant. Bob has spent many years now breaking Bipolar. He now coaches and supports families dealing with the awfulness of the “disease of loss,” and I’m certain great gains will be made by those individuals and families who call on Bob Krulish for help.

You can be diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder and never have depression. The key diagnostic feature is the mania. If you take an anti-depressant or an anti-anxiety medication and you truly have Bipolar 1 Disorder it’ll make you manic.”

Bob Krulish

In our interview, Bob tells of his humorous encounter with Tony Robbins and how his still-undiagnosed Bipolar condition worked in his favor to ensure short-term fame with the famous motivational guru. He also relates the elaborate way he bought a Hummer and kept his family from finding out for months.

There’s just one thing. If I could have this one thing or get this one thing figured out….” Is a common mantra Bob has used throughout his manic periods.

My suggestion is that Bob’s support may just be the ONE THING you and/or a loved one needs right now to triumph over Bipolar Disorder.

If you’re afflicted or affected by this you can live a happy life. It’s worth the effort. The life you want to live is possible.”

Bob Krulish

You can fly! (Metaphorically speaking)

It Cannot Be That Simple

Our recent guest, Dr. Philip C. Agrios, D.C. has discovered something entirely new. It’s so new, and in many ways counterintuitive to “normal” thinking, that I’m not even sure I understand it fully.

As so often moments of clarity follow moments of confusion, Dr. Agrios made his discovery while in that cycle.

As a practicing chiropractor Dr. Agrios treated people with chronic illnesses. One day he realized in sadness that he had not met his 5-year goals.

When you find something no one else has discovered you have to go through some stuff.”

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

“Stuff” came in the form of losing his business; destroying a marriage; developing a painful medical condition; losing his father to death; and almost losing his daughter the same way.

Though it took thirty years to reach the destination, Dr. Agrios has no regrets.

I would have never discovered what I did without the tragic journey I took.”

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

What he discovered was Life’s One Law. His finding has brought him success he enjoys sharing.

Now I can predict my future.

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

The process of discovering a self-sabotaging trait which protects us, and which is successful 100% of the time at helping us make life-altering decisions for good is only one part of Dr. Agrios’ program.

He’s tried to disprove the effectiveness of his solution, but he cannot. It is tried and true 100%. As soon as someone learns the antidote to their sabotaging trait they immediately go into a cycle of growth. It’s unavoidable.

Dr. Agrios has created seminars, internet courses and other programs so you and I may be helped by the same principles he now practices to attain optimal health, wealth, and happiness.

He describes Life’s One Law:

Energy is directed, supplied and connected to us, and is acted upon from the planet. Nature uses six steps to recover from storms. We use the same six steps to heal from challenges, trauma, and health issues.

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

Three Saboteur traits are Director, Supplier, and Communicator.

Director Saboteur:

This person is scattered. They finish 99% of something and then give up. They don’t trust themselves and enjoy chaos. In the extreme they can become hyper focused, irresponsible, and unaccountable.

Supplier Saboteur

This person gives and gives. They can’t say no. If they give to themselves they feel selfish. They are easily taken advantage of. In the extreme, they become narcissistic, then feel guilty and over-give again.

Communicator Saboteur

This person is loyal. They’d rather hold back than express themselves. They over process things, don’t want to feel stupid, so they don’t confront people. In the extreme they may say mean or unkind things.

Anyone can take a quiz on Dr. Agrios’ website to learn your trait. Click here for quiz

This is only the tip of the iceberg. You also get a 30-minute strategy call with me to dive a little deeper, and to learn your antidote.”

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

Dr. Agrios cautions:

Read the instructions to the quiz. Answer as if you are living in old patterns, such as when you were a teen or a child.

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

In the strategy session, be ready to share a problem. Dr. Agrios promises breakthroughs will happen.

You can 10x your business and relationships once you know the antidote.”

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

Then Dr. Agrios offers a 5-week online course where you’ll discover one word that stops your goals from being achieved.

One word? It cannot be that simple.

It works 100% of the time. Your life comes down to one sentence. You’ll get 100% of your money back if after the second week you don’t see results. The next courses begin on March 9th and March 17th.”

Dr. Philip C. Agrios

There is so much more in his book. You need to get it and read it. Within two weeks you can make huge shifts in yourself, employees, and/or relationships.

Right now when you go to 15% of the cost for anything you sign up for will go to The Speak Feed Lead Project.

I appreciate the kindness and generosity of Dr. Agrios. He has sponsored youth speakers, and now helping us in this way is going above and beyond.

Learn Life’s One Law, because it can be that simple.

Communities of Spiritual Action

Our recent guest, Elena Mustakova is a spiritually-oriented integral psychologist and psychotherapist. Her work integrates mindfulness-based understanding of moment-to-moment human resilience with an overall developmental and psychodynamic perspective on whole-person healing and development.

Psychological and spiritual health are inseparable, and healing requires work with the brain, mind, body, soul, and transforming the sociocultural contexts which generate suffering.”

Elena Mustakova

Elena collaborates with people from a deep belief in the presence of Spirit in our lives, and with reverence for the unique perspectives each person brings.

In response to the massive search for ways to find wellbeing and purpose under conditions of deepening crises and uncertain global transformations – some that have been a long time coming, others exacerbated and brought to light as COVID-19 swept the continents, Elena wrote Global Unitive Healing 

With her experience as an educator and social scientist with three and a half decades of work on the evolution of human consciousness and social transformation in cross-cultural contexts, Elena views our current reality as gripping.

The dramatic intensity of this moment – in which a global pandemic has collided with widespread poverty and corruption, coupled with environmental degradation and rapid climate change, and further complicated by waves of massive radicalization and extremism – is the gripping reality we continue to face.

I see quietly rising around the world communities of spiritual action.”

What distinguishes these communities from the more familiar church communities and other mass movements sweeping the planet is that communities of spiritual action undertake to heal the divisiveness so prevalent in our societies, which they understand is a central part of the disease ailing us.

  • They seek to transcend differences and harmonize perspectives
  • They involve themselves in deep and patient consultative exploration of foundational spiritual principles
  • They are committed to qualities and attitudes such as trustworthiness, cooperation, and forbearance
  • They champion rationality and science as essential to finding viable global solutions

In other words, they seek what philosopher Ken Wilber and many others have called integral solutions — in which the value spheres of science, philosophy, spirituality, and art, dissociated by modernity, are once again integrated.”

Elena reports that since these emergent communities understand the society-building power of spiritual principles at this time of universally broken social contract, in some countries, local authorities and institutions have turned to these communities for reliable and trustworthy solutions to specific challenges.

At this stage of our social and spiritual evolution, the universalist Baha’i spiritual perspective calls for a spiritual and religious understanding of all wisdom traditions as originating in the same source and guiding humanity on its evolutionary journey. It also calls for a social consciousness that corresponds to this spiritual perspective — one of global citizenship.”

How are we going to arise to this tall mandate across our over 6500 languages, and vast religious and cultural diversity, without losing any of it?

…By becoming conscious of our true reality — our spiritual nature, the spiritual nature of life, and its deep interconnectedness in all its diversity.”
