EP74: Declutter Your Mind For Clarity, Focus, and Peace with Stephanie Kwong

Do you feel like your brain has been serious overdrive lately? A stream of clutter of fear, doubt, confusion, worry or overthinking turning your mental space into a chaotic mess? I know this whole quarantine sitch from the Coronavirus and all the uncertainty of the future has been wrecking havoc in our minds. When we’re caught up in our heads, distracted by worry, overthinking or fear, we’re not present or clear-headed. And when we’re not clear-headed, we lose the connection to ourselves, to others, our environment, and our lives. Mental clutter pulls us off center, depletes our energy and disrupts our inner balance and harmony. If your mind is frantically waving a red flag, begging you to free up some headspace by clearing out the head-trash, then make sure you get your earballs on today’s episode. I lead you through a guided hypnosis that will give you a little boost to declutter your mind to create more calm, clarity, focus and peace. For full show notes and episode resources...

EP73: Building a bridge from your dreams to your destiny with Mark Victor and Crystal Hansen

Today I’ve got two special guests for you - inspirational speaker, trainer, serial entrepreneur, and co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series (with over 500 million books sold around the world), Mark Victor Hansen, and his wife Crystal Dwyer Hansen who is one of America’s leading success and wellness coaches. The huge success of the Chicken Soup series might suggest that Mark just has that Midas touch — but he assures me that isn’t the case. In fact, before Chicken Soup for the Soul’s release in 1993, Mark faced bankruptcy, a ton of rejection (the book was turned down 144 times!), and felt so low that he had to reach up to hit rock bottom. In this episode Mark tells me how he managed to pick himself up after each rejection, and how his faith in the power of his idea kept him going when everyone around him was telling him to quit. You’ll hear Mark and Crystal share their top tips for surrounding yourself with positivity, boosting your self-worth, and improving yo...

EP71: Unleash Your Inner Gladiator with Dan ‘Nitro’ Clark

In this episode I’m talking to Dan “Nitro” Clark about how he rose to fame in American Gladiator, despite a childhood marked by trauma, alcohol abuse, and drug use. Dan reminds us just how deceptive appearances can be as he describes how “broken” he felt even when it looked to the rest of the world that he had everything we’re supposed to want: money, fame, incredible physical fitness, and even his own action figure! Dan proves that with the right mindset, inner healing, and support, we can bounce back from anything, even a heart attack which Dan had back in 2013. That heart attack was a catalyst for him to break free from being a “some day” guy to living on purpose and taking inspired action every day. So, If you’ve ever found yourself saying “some day” to the things you want to experience or to accomplish, this episode is the perfect kick up the butt to start living your life right now!

EP70: Connect To Your Inner Voice For Guidance with Stephanie Kwong

If you're searching for answers in life (and really, who isn't?), you might not have to look any further than yourself. Today I’m dropping a solo episode on the podcast and I’m giving you a powerful guided hypnosis experience that will connect you with the still, small voice—your inner GPS that is always guiding you to your truth. I work with high achievers who are at the top of their game, and they know that one of their greatest assets for their personal and professional success is being able to listen to and trust their intuition. Your intuition, aka inner guidance is a superpower and can support you in so many ways like connecting you to your truth, unveiling answers to questions, and guiding you on your path and evolution. It’s important to be in tune with yourself and to connect with your own inner wisdom for guidance. This guided hypnosis will help you strengthen that connection with your inner wisdom.

EP69: Face Your Fears And Thrive with Humble The Poet

Back in 2014, Kanwer Singh AKA Humble the Poet left his career as an elementary school teacher to take the leap into the music scene based on a false promise that landed him deep in debt.

EP68: Defy The Odds, Create Your Own Destiny W/ Anthony Trucks

Former NFL athlete, international speaker, author and shift coach, Anthony Trucks defied painful odds, and created his own destiny. Anthony was given away at 3 years old into the foster care system and experienced an extreme amount of horrific abuse that no child ever should.
