Rank #8: Does the Bacteria in Our Gut Impact Human Consciousness? - Conversation with Dr. Zach Bush [Episode 133]

Podcast cover
Read more

Learn from one of the few triple board-certified physicians in our country in today’s special episode! In this fascinating conversation with Dr. Zach Bush, we learn about the impact of chemical farming on human consciousness, what a “leaky gut” really is, and how we can eat in a way that decreases our risk of cancer and other chronic illnesses. Dr. Bush covers actionable steps we can take now to reconnect to mother nature, explains why there’s no such things as “good” and “bad” bacteria, and why the gut microbiome is what’s triggering so many people to turn to yoga, meditation, and spiritual practice as part of their healing. Don’t miss the magic blend of spirit and science in this episode!

Zach Bush MD is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country, with expertise in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. In 2012 he discovered a family of carbon-based redox molecules made by bacteria, and his team has subsequently demonstrated that this cellular communication network functions as an antidote to glyphosate, and many other dietary, chemical, and pharmaceutical toxins that disrupt our body's natural defense systems. This science has resulted in a revolutionary class of dietary supplements, including the product RESTORE.

Rank #17: Aligning Thought and Action for Exponential Results - Conversation with Beth Weissenberger [Episode 179]

Podcast cover
Read more

Meditation teaches us that we are not our thoughts, yet controlling our never-ending inner dialogue is a massive challenge. Today, executive coach Beth Weissenberger describes how she helps CEOs and professional NFL players achieve their desired results by gaining awareness of their own inner dialogue. Beth provides a framework of how we can ‘name’ the voices inside our head for greater awareness and ultimately, elevate our consciousness. Before recording this podcast, Beth told me she wasn’t sure if her message would resonate with yogis. One of my favorite parts of this interview is that so much of what she shares is almost identical to what’s taught in a variety of yoga traditions. If you’re looking to achieve a greater sense of awareness over your thoughts and your life, this episode is for you!

Rank #18: Crystals 101: Everything You Need to Know about Using Healing Stones - Conversation with Samantha Fey [Episode 135]

Podcast cover

Everything you ever wanted to know about crystals, broken down! Today we speak to expert Samantha Fey about what crystals are, how to pick them out, and how to “work with them” in our yoga, meditative or spiritual practice. We cover how the crystals and the chakra system are interconnected, how to cleanse your stones once you bring them home and how to “charge” them up with the phases of the moon. Did you know you might want to wear your crystals and healing jewelry on different sides of the body, pending your intention? As if the conversation couldn’t get juicer, Samantha and I wrap up by speaking about Sacred Selfishness – one of her favorite topics. We’re taught to be of service to others, but not how to take care of and love ourselves. Both of us share our tips on how to make sacred time for yourself and practice saying “no.”

Samantha Fey has been working with crystals for over 20-years and is an intuitive medium and Reiki Master. She co-hosts the popular podcast the Psychic Teachers with Deb Bowen and writes for Beliefnet on all things spiritual. Samantha believes that if we can all learn to awaken the divine light of love inside of us, we can truly heal and ignite the world.

Lower 4 Chakra Mastery with Brett Larkin [Episode 244]

Podcast cover
Read more

Let’s go a layer deeper than we normally do when talking about the chakra system.

Sure, we know the Root Chakra is about “safety” and “security,” but what does that mean at an energetic, soul level? Why is mastery of the lower 4 chakras so essential to our success in the world? Sharing examples from my own life, I discuss how you can unpack and decode these energy centers to figure out what energetic patterns are blocking you. Let’s do this! Join me for a special New Year’s Eve workshop to go deeper at: www.brettlarkin.com/nye

Podcast cover
Read more

Today, we continue our conversation with Elizabeth Bishop, creator of the Conscious Service Approach. We talk about service-based relationships as a container for self-discovery and enlightenment. We discuss why you don’t need to “protect yourself” from the negative energy of others and what you can do instead. Elizabeth shares with us her methodology for how each of us can create a personal philosophy to integrate who we are with how we serve. Anyone who has ever been a teacher, healer, service professional or cared for an ailing love one, will love this heartfelt episode.
