"Going to release what i can't control. I'm going to show up where i can make a difference. The meaning of the word home is multidimensional me. I love my physical home. And i love coming home to me. That internal me in the midst of all the chaos. I believe that the turmoil are twenty. Twenty was meant to give us lessons. It felt like we were moving through this portal this war tax to the other side into something more beautiful. I believe there's something more beautiful on the other side of all of this and what we've been feeling this craziness of this year was really meant to magnify the circumstances that were long overdue to shift and perhaps to allow us to see things through a new lens as we get to the other side of this craziness perhaps a softer gentler lens. Women's wisdom is the medicine are earth. Lates i believe that at the very core a my being we have come to this vortex of twenty twenty two truly step into new ways of being leading of serving in Into twenty twenty one and beyond. I can literally feel this shift in my body. And i'm excited for what's to come. Can you feel the ship. I'm been feeling this shipped. It's like through the end of this year. It got pretty intense. And i was doing all sorts of meditations i was released. I was taking time with my horses. I was simply making space. And i could feel a physical tension in my body. I could feel an energetic tension in the world and the ships were still going through it right. I mean they're still kinds of things happening around us but there's some there's been a shift that that it's actually opening up and i did feel this this a total opening up in this last week of december. I feel it in this first week of january and this is really fascinating to me. This shift has been company coming right. Indigenous elders from around the world had been speaking of this ship for many years. When i interviewed dr anita sanchez. a few years back. She had just released her book. The four sacred guests indigenous wisdom for modern times and the time of our interview. She had just returned from spending a week and qui- with thirteen indigenous elders from around the world. Among the many deep discussions the group embarked upon. There was a clear agreement from the elders that women would have an important role in the energetic shifts. That we're going to be coming into our world. They predicted these intense times. They predicted what our role as women would be. They predicted that we would be moving from a masculine dominant energy. That is so prevalent in our business. Our money our government systems into a much more balanced feminine and masculine energy led by women. And i'm by no means in astrology expert. But i've been tuning in listening to a lot of astrology in this last quarter of the year. And if you follow any of the stra logical gurus. They speak to the big shifts and planetary alignments. That are going on right now. That has some that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. The energy we just came through as we closed out. The year was incredibly intense. I heard over and over from astrologist. Expect us and know that there were that. There is a newer lighter energy on the other side of this. When i can't say is i feel the shift. I feel it in my bones and in the weeks preceding the new year. I felt a new lightness of breath. I truly could feel a lighter energy in my breathing. I see a future of women standing in their light because the world needs us. We are being called my friends to do our work to be connected to are being to make a difference with the gifts of who we are in collaboration and community a here calling for a different way of being in the world to rise up out of all the noise and that is around as me. Think about the noise that we are in right now from the politics to cova all that. There's so much noise and when we stop and we tune in and we listen we start to feel differently. We start to we we can be. We have a different way of being right Get out of the noise of scarcity thanking fearmongering and all the other things that are going on and come forth with our wisdom. I feel sense of doing things in a different way. And that means being connected to one another to trust each other to knowing each other allowing the universe to support us to connecting to who we are bring all of our life experiences to the table being connected to my soul being connected to yourself being connected to others connected to the end of verse in really stepping into the flow and not the hustle. And that's a big piece of it right. I think that's a ship that's going to be happening is in our businesses is it. It's not about the hustle about being in the flow and being aligned at the work that we're meant to be bringing into the world it's about carrying. It's not empathy about softness in different ways of being. It's about different ways of doing so. What does this army for you and your business. Here are some of the most important shifts. I see for leading your business and twenty twenty one and it's really it's all centered around the world leadership and it's a new kind of leadership. Several years ago. I wrote an article called lead like a woman with grit and grace might have put the lincoln heresy. So you can go read the full article because there's all kinds of good tips around it. But i think it is so relevant for today right now and this is what i wrote in this in this blog. Post women have been shape shifting who they are in leadership roles for years. Defendant a man's world times are changing a new leadership. Paradigm is unfolding making way for leaders to embrace and embody more graceful heart based wisdom fused way of leading. This is leadership guided by seeing feeling and connection. The world is ready and in fact the world needs you. Does that kill good. Does that feel really good feels. It's exciting to me when you start looking at the way that we can lead with a more graceful heart based wisdom infuse way of leading right by feeling by connection this this is so different and there are several points that and i give a good tips around how you can. You can really step in action action. These these different types but I the starts being the perfect and imperfect expression of you that means knowing who you are showing up embracing all of you not putting up the walls of trying to project but really just being you knowing what your gifts are and that essence of you building that into how you show up and serve your clients. Second know what it is you want to be known for and this means really getting clear about a the core message your mental deliberate in the world right because if you are in this space of of trying to to put messaging now it's just it's just it's just there's no substance to it right and you see so much of this in the world. We have so much information going on in the world. Had something that you stand for be able to put a stake in the ground..

"Kind of things you know. We had the The animal loss in Australia where they Because you brought up animals Where they you know in the fires are one billion. Animals died in those fires So the animal alas alone. We weren't seasons something. We were conscious of bet. It further opened us up and then the the fires and the different thing. So if you are an impact in any way few All of us are have natural compassion. There just a lot of people on earth right now are natural impact. That's why they're on the earth right now because we have this global movement to Have more compassion toward the earth and to each other and to animals but anyway that the smoke from those fires actually circulated all over the globe and and affected the lungs of millions of people. So we were already -ceptable. Yeah so impacts are now fielding a lot of this heart energy unconsciously so. It's so interesting to me about. This fire is actually affects lungs as well But lungs are the area of a body that we hope hold sadness so arief sadness actually lives in the lungs so I am telling people in my tribe focus on your lungs. Breathe through unprocessed grief. This is a time where you can be away from. Everyone and you can go into your private chambers and you can cry you can take a bath you know and you can get out some of the things you may be. You're so busy before with other things or you know. It just didn't seem the right time. Or what have we will now? We have been given this invitation to stop and clear the heart sadness for the whole world and then for each of our own personal as interesting in the lungs. Because I'm just thinking of Corona virus. Would it does it? Impacts our long. So I think that's a really interesting perspective in the mix of all of us in factly It's an another piece that came to mind as you were sharing. That was interviewed Dr Anita Sanchez husband. Probably almost two years ago now and her book is indigenous wisdom for modern times and she was doing a lot of work around the world with with indigenous Communities and leaders and part of what they were talking about in. Our podcast is out there so you can go here. But it's Part part of what they were talking about was that this is the rise of the feminine energy was really coming and it was really an important time for our world right now so you know all is just you know all these pieces start to fit together and it's amazing where how it's all unfolding and So thank you for sharing all your your wisdom on this. I think it's really fascinating I'd love to hear some of you. Help women step into their self worth and I know you have an incredible story about finding your own self. Worth worth right is that it was twisting turning. It was not straight line by any means. Can you share more of your personal story? Sure So I was born into a family where there was a lot of severe mental illness for many generations back. We don't know how far back because it wasn't really talked about attract pass you know. Great Depression era and previous to that but my parents together have six children. I mean they they were. I don't have parents. I should say my parents biologically at six children. And I'm the second oldest and I am the only sibling to this point. That's never had a panic attack or been diagnosed with a major mental illness Not Very haven't had a panic attack But mostly bi polar. I'm between two sisters one year older and one two years younger who are both diagnosed bipolar And mother on her side of the family. Lots of suicides with cousins and Whatnot my dad on his side. He lost a sister to suicide and in her suicide letter. She asked me parents to raise her three year old son so he was adopted as the seven child in our family only awarded and She was young. She was my aunt. She was thirty two when she died. And then my sister Fifteen years ago in this coming April. She took her life and she loves behind five children and her children. She was thirty. Four her children ranged in age from two to twelve and she and I are only two years apart so we were close. We lived in the same community. Our children stay Mejia's When that happened in two thousand five on my cassette coming up on fifteen years it actually change the trajectory of my entire life path I had a psych degree. I actually worked In a sector hospital is a group. Counselor I also worked at an addiction. Recovery Center as a family education director so most of my training was traditional clinical And my sister when she died was on about a dozen medications to manage for bipolar symptons. My older sister you're older was also on justice. Many medications at the time of our younger sister's death and she turned to the family literally to the day of the hour. We find out about other sister and said she beat me to it so my other sister. How a suicide plan? So why? Yeah and and when all this came to light in after he lost Shana Like I said it changed everything just in the way that I I mean because here have children you have five children and a new that that there was a high likelihood they would inherit something right and also just wanting to stop that pattern and how an and having worked in western treatment models in clinical settings. I knew that we really weren't healing. People like I saw a lot of recidivism. I saw a lot of relaxing a lot. People just not feeling and what is wellness and what is wholeness and so my sister my surviving sisters and mom and I. We all dove into the healing arts holistic allergies together. Yeah we did. And as we've got to stop this and Sarah. My mom became a foot. Zoellner it's kind of like reflect reflexologist issued if were science work. And then my other sister became a massage therapist judith massage service and my other sister the wanted was was going to commit suicide She actually had already been studying like Reiki and energy medicine things but she really dove back into that in a big way so fast forward. Fifteen years All of us. All the women healers in my family. We've all and I. I need to say to that I became. I'm not a hands on healer or an intuitive or anything but I definitely dove into Things like EPA genetics and Healing from the inside out root cause natural more natural means to heal the mind body sir really dove into like energy medicine and my body medicine and I saved medicine that there was a lot of stuff I studied. That wasn't scientific but yet drastically affected My family's health and my client so I became a life coach and I just started doing my own thing and You know fast forward now. I've been all over the world speaking about natural health. I mean I go to. I have the large Global Organization of many tens of thousand strong in and we we talk about natural natural ways of healing. My Body Then my my younger sister who was pregnant with her first baby at the time of our sisters. She's twelve younger than I robin. She and I have done this largely together. I self published a book depression and now I'm I'm really involved in helping people clear out. Toxic residue of Generational Patterns Downturns. My sister that was going to take her. Life actually has released all of her medications but when why and she now is a life coach and house really actually had her bipolar diagnosis rescinded by two different doctors. So we are healing and breaking patterns. I my kids at the time that my sister died you know fifteen years ago. They were three five and seven. I had three kids. I now have five. And the oldest. And they're they range in age from twenty after the old no is twenty three now to five Now and And we are seeing this play out with this next generation that we will see different different. The patterns are breaking with that you that were coming through the generations. Yeah and and really. My passion is helping women shine in their own leader stuff sovereignty and leadership domain so the old the leadership paradigm the mouse centric one was achievement recognition Go Go You know really focused on outward mobility and the New Feminine Leadership Paradigm is All Abou- internal centering and alignment and city and expansion. But it doesn't look the same way. It's not hard numbers and hard data and figures and I see a lot of women trying to push the agenda and it really triggered me. 'cause I don't have to do that. We're here to show a different way. Which is how do we? How do we I align in our Sol's and then bring that into our homes and then bring it to a larger domains that we are this is why I are aligned? So we believe this right. We believe that it comes from the inside out perspective. And when I read your tagline your message your message I was like Oh my God I just love that first of all So tell us more about how you really helping women step into their true message through their mass. Yeah so I actually didn't make that phrase up. I don't know where he heard it but when I heard it I'm like oh that's it because every single thing that you have inherited whether it's genetic or environmental we have no we have. We have no seeming control over where we end coronated but I actually think we did shoes that we purposely chose which families system and where we wanted to be born in. Wayne you awake to our weight and aware of that. That is not the victim of what you've inherited but it's it's meant to be your vehicle of empowerment Even if you made choices along the road that didn't seem to be the highest twice while there's that is also a message right so we came here to turn lemons in time. Nate whatever you want to call it. Beauty for ashes. Whatever you WANNA say We came here to take whatever we've in our humanness and in our weakness and and make it something beautiful no matter what it was so I don't care if you're sitting in prison or if you're in the throes of addiction or wherever you're at you can take that move it. I have a brother who struggled with alcoholism. We almost lost him. Just like NAS my sister. He's now you know several years sober and now is turning his message into his his own empowerment. So.

"Maybe some listeners also have felt that I've got a big purpose. It's really important. I need to do it now. Wow like let's get the show on the road it has to happen. Tell me what it is. I'm ready to go. I got my march you know and so I had that ready to march arched feeling in things are about to open up. Are there brought to open up. But then they wouldn't and the rebound to open up. A wooden is like having this meditation one day on the way to another healing playing Training which I didn't really need but I I just like them so I wanted to go get trained in another holiday. So I'm going out and taking a moment to meditate before I drive Dr and I have this really expansive meditation. The kind where. There's no more thought and you're just really out there in the universe new. Just like tingling sparkling and I had that kinda meditation. And then I heard the guides Sta- she's not ready and fired up and I'm like I am ready like aw don't say about me I am and it felt like they were like discussing something or deciding or something like that and then the meditation they should ended in. I started driving to my retreat and a couple hours later. My mom called I. I looked on the phone and send my mom called and I called her back and she's like carry. You gotta come home like talking about. I'm like all the way to Mar.. I'm almost at my retreat. And she's like Ed Dad's in the hospital and he's dying and if you want to see him again you need to come home. He had this like last minute out of the blue. Of course pneumonia thing it just like came on and Bam like a freight truck so I turned around I drove all the way back fifteen hours and I and I got there. Four thirty in the morning got to spend several hours of my dad by his bedside and you you know listening to him and and my brain like we were taking a like a life review as I was dozing and he was dozing. We actually were in the mental full space. I could not imagine Imagination space if it's your mentioned like actually having a life review and he is reminding me of you know I told you this I showed you this like taking a whole journey. Journey was Mu is beautiful bruce who was like gorgeous and then the next morning he was gone and this is like sold agreements. This is what talked about in the book. I did not realize it at that moment but later on I realized I had a sneaking suspicion that I didn't want to admit because it would make me feel guilty so I did have a sneaking suspicion Russian right then that this is what had happened and I was feeling a little guilty about it because my mom but really later on actually about three days as before I publish the book the second wave I had a medicine ceremony at plant medicine ceremony and in the ceremony he actually full-on came in with me in a conversation and a dialogue White Eagle and said. Who Do you think's been training you this whole time? Who Do you think? Sure ally I on the other side when you're about to do big work in the world. Wow and then you just connected like all the dots all the little threat. Do you know the little the threads that you've got that you just discard like you get it and then you throw it away or it goes back under the waves. He just pulled them all out like a big tapestry. The Constellation Islas dues mind blowing. And he's like you better put my name on the book because you don't have very much authority or credibility right now and you could use a little my name on the book. I was like okay. I'm GONNA do it. This is the first time I've ever done anything like this. My you know Oh my twenty year high tech person going into what the one in my brain that's third dimensional reality and how people think about things is going so you want me to do what this is. Oh I'M GONNA lose all credibility now you know but I'm going to get a different credibility so so yeah so it definitely. It was really powerful experience and I didn't even have time to integrate it because like three days later the book is published. And you know I had added that initial section because I said he why did you actually told me you don't need you. Don't even put that in there but I but carry hummingbird put it in here. Because I felt like I needed to explain it. Explain all the pieces. I couldn't just let it out like fascinating. Let's talk about Rainbow Light Activation. What's that so well? Rainbow Light is the highest frequency light. You know it's I picked up some rainbow alight activation. Of course my path led me all the places I needed to be as it turns out. The Carol Shamans from Peru are are the keepers of the rebel lagoon. So there's this Rainbow Lagoon. That's in Austin gotTa Holding Their Holy Mountain in Peru and it's except like sixteen thousand five hundred feet and so they have shamans that actually live up there and protect the Rainbow Lagoon. Because it's a portal like as soon activated deportable of Rainbow Light. So when I was up there I went on. I just so happened to be called to go to Augusta. Of course. Of course I knew in my heart. I needed to go so I went. I didn't House GonNa affordable whatever it all happen and I went there and the night before I walked up there Albert Oviedo because it was his group that went up there. He's an attempt that before and he's he gave me an extra time he didn't give anybody else a hard time. But he poked at me and he's like well Kerry no if you can't make it all the way to the rainbow going to back that everybody has to turn around and nobody gets to go. WHOA talk about pressure? I know he's it's like are you sure you can make 'cause you're even having a little trouble lately and I actually was not having trouble but he put that thought in my mind and I had to. It was like an initiation creation. I feel like he did it on purpose to initiate me right to the claim right because in the other life on the trail of tears I had been in so much responsibility. Eighty and for all these people in that lifetime I couldn't handle it actually couldn't watch the devastation. I couldn't be present with it. It was too much for me so this this was another opportunity so I got to forgive myself on the way up there but anyway yeah so I went all the way up to the top of the Rainbow Lagoon and I sang the song to the Rainbow Keefer which is an energetic addict. Being a flight that lives up there and I just sang a song to this beautiful being and I connected with it like good friends now. When I was coming down off at at the next day we did at the final dispatch? Oh the Carol Shamans and I brought a bunch of stones down because not everybody made it up there cannot everybody could go. They couldn't physically do it right so I collected a bunch of stones up there and I offered them. I said okay. Whoever couldn't make his my gift to you like you have a piece of the Reagan? Sure and the Carol Massar is saying something something and I could understand it because my Spanish still on his work on my Spanish and my friend translated and she said Oh they think you're the rainbow keeper on Rainbow Keeper Kula. Aw dismissed it again. It was one of those bits I just put under the I was like okay. Whatever but actually after that I started challenges rainbow symbol light activation? So you're asking about the rainbow the rainbow light activation is actually like it's from another place from source or some is like is rainbow light that comes down and it's like a waterfall of it and it actually upgrades every single cell day. Strand of your being like. It's actually actually healing all the human strains of suffering that we've had up until now because we're moving into another whole reality like we're we're shifting this reality we're shifting into to a whole `nother potential now of like what's this Maserati capable of not like how broken is it. We've been exploring the hell broke in his maserati where moving moving into like what this thing capable of like. Oh my goodness like what could we possibly do with Maserati. Like how fast can it go. Can Fly can go under the water. You know like how psychic is it like. We're so there's a lot of you know reconfiguring reprogramming of the DNA that in our understanding. That has to happen our cellular memory and all all of that so the Rainbow Light actually comes down through that and bring the ascension codes that would support you in making that transition in your own life opening the book of destiny so you are a philanthropist. So let's talk about that aspect of what you do. Yeah so I would say that. There are many philanthropist On the Earth at this time there are many people that do lots of work all night long in your sleep for the whole planet and they're called the second wave and probably others very but there's like ten percent of the planet that does this work right now in the second wave and then there's also the first wave which came before I did tons of work the ability inroads for all the teachings learnings that we would need in order to activate into the second way. So we're paving away for the third wave and they're like so pure beautiful you know. They've really have connection. They they know love in appearance in a higher vibration nation than maybe has been present here so philanthropy for me is like that work that you do that. You don't even know you're doing or you know but you're doing it all night long and you and you're just giving so you're philanthropist you. Because mindfulness mode. That's what that is. You just fill the call to do it because you know you need to get their messages out there and and you're not attached to the outcome is say it. You're doing it because somebody is gonNA listen. It's GONNA help them so I've been doing that kind of work for my whole life like I just showed up doing that. Just whatever way I can pitch in or use my gifts or you know I find myself in leadership positions all the time and I just I can't have to just up in you know because that's waiting for me to step in and do something with it and Organiz people so I haven't like monetarily. A lot of people judge things like ECOMMERCE money did I get for that. That usually hasn't panned out for me in that way like this is not the reward that I get from. It does just doesn't see it'd be a billionaire all right now if that was the case but I just do it because it's like feels good. It's the right thing to do. I feel the call sometimes. I have the inner resistance to doing the thing and and I am not and I do it anyway and then I always flip out her at the end of the day so I think that is really the definition of a philanthropist. Like you see the work that needs to get done like Anita Sanchez. You you see that worked against needs to get done and you do the work you apply yourself and you get in there and you're being called to do and that's how the way it was with your book. The second wave. Have you just knew that you needed to do it. And you channel that whole book. We talked a moment about that before I hit record. Can you tell us how mindful that was that experience of actually channeling the book. Yes I had to get myself when I say we have many aspects of of south so maybe clear. My personality needed to be in the background. In order for White Eagle to flow through the wisdom threw me into the book now what facilitated that is decades and decades of being a writer like I had twenty years as a high tech communications communications and writer for Second Valley so it already forged the channel within myself of words of the right words. So that part you know I was the personality personality. Did that part you know did the work of building a canal and then then the river flows through the canal and asks the spirit so like I asked this question you know. What can I not carry hummingbird personality? What can I take credit for in the answer was you can take credit for doing the work to build the resiliency in the canal and filling your bucket with good information information? That's what you take credit for now. Handed over is you know. And that's kind of like what we do we handed over then and then it'd be the flood comes through the flood of the spirit flows through so when I was writing that book I knew that I needed to be a space where my personality fell. Okay I'm seeing I'm witnessed. I'm loved I'm held. I'm safe great now I can. I'm willing to step into background and allow this flood to come through and then the spirit comes through and as I'm in writing which is a channel lie channel with clients at Channel on the phone I channel and the groups that just happens naturally. I've just listening. And then the words coming to start speaking now without knowing what I'm saying and luckily I record a lot of it. Do.

"I have a feeling you are just going to love being immersed in the conversation we're about to have have I have a fabulous author on this show today WHO's able to allow the book to be channeled through Sir onto the page and it was fascinating to read this book called the second wave and I'm sure you are going to love it as as well. You can get it on kindle you can order it of course on Amazon so exciting to have Kerry hummingbird with me today carrier you in in mindfulness mode. Today I am in mindfulness mode and sometimes they call it might empty. Yes I do know mine. Empty can good evening. Well mindful tribe. Let me share a little bit about Kerry with you. Carry Hummingbird is a sole guide. A channel of an embodiment of White Eagle and white. Eagle is an ascended master who specializes in Rainbow Light activation in of human DNA Carey has served as a social activist a leader of both philanthropic philly.

She's done all this activism and all this work she's the founder of the skills not pills IOS movement and host of soul nectar podcast Kerry inspires people. And when I say that I really mean it inspires people to lead their lives lives wide awake with an authenticity a passion and purpose so Kerry. What does mindfulness mean to you? Mindfulness to me Eh means being able to get mind empty enough to listen so it's like being still as much as you can be to become aware of what's happening not only in your mind but like in your body lake in your cells in your breath in the moment in the relationship relationship in the projection and the discomfort in the ICKE. That you're feeling are not feeling like it's like being able to kind of go through your life aware of all of that and not holding onto any of it at the same time and listening league listening to everything. There's a lot of listening to happen. And then there's a flow all that happens in that state so that was a lot of just said just like that. What do you think about that? I think that's awesome. I think that that I was fascinated when I was reading your book the second way because you started talking about how you went on a search for your grandfather and what does like why did you do that. What moved you to the search for your grandfather? It was actually. My grandmother will make sorry no no worries but you I felt this. Really deep inner alignment with native American tradition. And if you're watching me I mean I'm redheaded look like that right but I do have Cherokee in my lineage and I've just felt an alignment. They're like I feel an alignment with nature. I feel an alignment linemen with drums and drumming and like all the things you know the native American traditions. I just feel alliance there and I couldn't really explain that except that I have this ancestor right so I thought okay. Well I just need to get connected with that and I couldn't enter dimension because my grandmother back around the time of the trail of tears she could pass for white so you know she found a white man and married him which was her decision but as as a result we lost her name. We lost on the roles. I don't I won't even know how to navigate that how to find that so I thought okay. Well I'm GonNa find somebody that's really good at going beyond the veil like going through the fist dimension to talk to the ancestors and connect me that way and I don't think that I was is ever disconnected per se. I think it was just the I needed a bridge. I needed somebody to bridge me. You know into that next space so actually I went to the Cherokee village replica village in in Cherokee in the mountains there and I didn't actually get connected at first time. There was no success success. I asked around but I didn't really get anything but the second time I went which is two years later. I went with my sons. My grandmother had just died different grandmother. My stepdad's mom had died and we were coming back through and I said you know what I want to go back again. I'm going to try again and I did. I went to one person in the next president experts in this and I got connected with somebody who said a help you. It's fine you're uh-huh crying and you're really upset because by now I'm feeling like really like I. This is something missing and I need to find it. I need to get back. And he was. He would see that in so bruce was his name and he said okay. I'll be on the parking lot so I start walking out to go and wait in a parking lot is going to be fifteen minutes or something with my sons and I started walking away and I feel this like softball size piece of energy just like it got flung at me through the back of my head head by where your neck meets the back of your head there. Like there's there's a portal called the mouth of God. Actually which I did not know at the time I did nothing about that but I felt this energy come in and then all the sudden I could like see the trees breathing and I felt dizzy and like expanded and really weird you know so I sat down. I said I gotta sit down. I don't know what's going on with me but I need to sit down and that started like this. Six Year journey seven year journey of like integrating this energy. Like what is this and of course Bruce met with me you know and the whole time sitting there talking to him. I'm kind of chattering out about my story and is other voices saying to me too many any thinking. That's voice started to many thinking and I became aware of this chatterbox. Like just telling a story the Justice Ego itself and I became aware. There's other things saying no to many thinking so it was so interesting to me. It's been unpacking spending spending unfolding in on a packing of this inner awareness of what was that I came in. Who Am I now? Is it me is it an ancestor. Is it something I'm here in a definitely felt like something was healing. 'cause I started going into this healing I had to heal this part of me. That was now part of me. I had to heal this. So it's a lot of inter exploration is very fascinating. It's been a fascinating journey. It really is fascinating and I noticed that we have a lot of mutual friends. Because you have your show your podcast soul nectar and I notice. You've had Anita Sanchez on who I just also do. I just absolutely absolutely loved interviewing her and reading her book and an as soon as I started learning about you I thought you two are just two peas in pod. You're you just so connected yeah. She's amazing I love her very much and we understand each other greatly. Yes yeah yeah for sure. So tell us about Whitey. Go I mean it was fascinating fascinating reading about White Eagle in the book and how you stumbled upon White Eagle. Tell us the story. So White Eagle is started coming to me and waves like like through this healing process like the first step. Is this like this energy the back of my skull right which. I don't even know what that is but I can see the trees breath now. Another kind of different perceptionist actionist coming in. And then I started hearing this guide that was saying too many thinking who is this and I started becoming aware of that and then I started working with you know healers and clairvoyance and and I was going to energy medicine school so I was training with the four winds light body school which is a school of Alberto Vilar Aldo was doing training narrow and so we were already working in in self healing and modalities of aligning to your soul and things like that so during that process things kept coming up about what White Eagle White Eagle. This thought you know this. And it wasn't always the name White Eagle but it was like this indigenous Shaman medicine man inside of me that needed to heal this deep grief over the trail of tears like had made a decision that then it felt like the weight of the world was on him about this decision to hold peace because he was the peace chief and so all these waves have information. Start to come through and I'm feeling like there's tremendous amandus grief that seems beyond me like it just seems like it's too much for me I just can't my life can't be that screwed up is gonNA started thinking to myself 'cause for for a while I thought wow I'm really screwed up because I've got all this sadness and grief in anger and all this stuff on my own. I know we're all this is coming from. I know my life's been a little screwing I've tried to do. Some hailing understanding of that but this beyond that this seems bigger and I started realizing I started seeing him visions and then I started seeing him like doing drum journey during journeys and things like that I would see him in front of me. It was just. Give me the drumstick. Just let me Drum I. This is interesting staying And it's getting confirmed with all these psychics and people. I would talk in me. What is going on with this? You know who is this but I kept. I'm doing this deep healing and I even doing some writing which I didn't talk about in the book but I would do this automatic writing where I'd be like. Okay what do you want. And he'll be like I want my tribe I want I want my tribe. I want my tribe and I'd be like well okay but you have to lead the tribe. Are you ready to lead the tribe. No I'm not ready. So there is this back and forth in conversation that was happening with this aspect of self healing. It is like he was helping me hill. I was helping him because I'd had all this trauma and things things going on through my life so far so we are helping each other. I've had many mystical moments with him. Were it's like we were unifying together. Legs exit masculine and Feminine Together and then the part will really kind of blew. My mind was that I will back up until this part of the story and then I'll tell while the the part I think you're thinking about is that my dad died so my Stepdad Ben. Just a huge huge force of light in my life from the time I was five five and had been very traumatic before that but then he showed up and he put order to chaos and he just came in and master teacher really beautiful beautiful guide lovely a person and and he was the kind of man when he entered the room. Everybody wouldn't WanNa go talk to my dad. He is a kind of man if he entered the room. All the dogs go crawl up in his lap. You know he was Zac guy and you know everybody sort of crawled up in his lap. You know they all want to gather around my dad and he thought so. That was my dad and I just thought my dad's amazing so right about the time that I'm doing all this healing and I know I've got a big purpose. I feel it within me I. I know that I've got important things to do. I've gotta get them done. And I had this urgency about it like I gotta do it now and and maybe some listeners also have felt that I've got a big purpose. It's really important. I need to do it now. Wow like let's get the show on the road it has to happen. Tell me what it is. I'm ready to go..

"Sunflower in silence and just be there present to the sunflower so by the end of the day you can imagine we had turned always looking toward the sun and then the sunset and being present to and Oh my gosh here's a woman who had no formal education indigenous woman that to this day I use the lessons of being present to one with even in darkness turning towards the light that I've used in my carpet work in my community work all over the world it. She embedded that in the I felt like a cellular way those lessons which all of us can get we have inches or not having a second grandmother win. We can be present like that listening with the softest art of our ears. We are able to not only share here what is being exchanged but even in the silence in between which is to say you can hear the music between the words and Bruce to this day when people hard illicit will it. Does it takes practice to that you can be quiet to the calm your mind to be present truly in wanting to be there for another being but I'll tell you once you start doing da you hunger for it like I hunger for being silence listening with US office part of my ear because it's another level of intimacy and connection that can happen in a second between a child and a parent between coworkers you know between in the community just going by total stranger and that being present to them if they have words or not worse it's so powerful it helps you not forget that we truly are one who of wife not to world's not a develop world undeveloped world not all these different we are one coupe of life and he hit years like giving to listen to the other beings. We are one hoop of life. I just love that four sacred gifts dot com mindful tribe. You really need to check this out and you can check out the facebook place where you'll find Anita Anita Sanchez. PhD The HD on facebook and twitter Dr Anita Sanchez now Anita another one of the things you talked about in your book is is a well of joy and a well of pain and how are you dealing with this. What is a well of joy? What is a well of pain? Let's talk about well. I think that's the the healing process that we all need to do on a daily basis. It's not a one time event like love the shot like me so I never ever have to suffer now. The healing process is the process and so what happens over time you just realize that okay. I'm suffering right now. Something thing happen in than I have choice about and it's not about denying it or pushing down because it'll come out some other way. It's really looking at it putting in the light seeing it before Ford is and what I call a positive balance so I'm always look so. What's the learning here? What do I have to be grateful for things? The eldest told us you know like be careful. Full of what you think be careful what you say because once you have that you can't take it back what you can put out a new so I'm always when the suffering or pain or a healing these happen acknowledged it because I don't want to just pretend like look at it see it and then what is the learning here in what's to be grateful for and so that well of pain that I used to think the illusion that was all my life and there was this little bitty has really totally opposite is a very small malwal pain that I continue to release that and the well of joy is huge. Let me also say this like the seasons seasons like the day tonight. Things are shifting and changing all the time so it's not about trying to hang onto at specific acidic either God when I was eighteen or I get joy when I first learned whatever it is is leading that too because that hanging on is preventing Banou from coming to so that's that's what I'm talking about in being taught in having my learning to understanding more deeper that we hold onto all that so as thought leaders as leaders of our own lives talking necessarily organizationally or anything or even in the family we are that that we get to hold onto all of this. We get to decide how we want to live our life and so I leave my life as an the digits for standing -able harmony enjoy either is when we pay attention to our relationship the human beings to Letter Ping's nature and to spirit that is living as a whole human being and that is what can bring harmony because collectively we come together we get to just it's expansive in 'em. Is it really well really amazing so Anita. Do you have a story about bullying that you can share with us where mindfulness maybe would have made a difference. Yes I can at all just a here so many bowling bowling stories working with the clients both in business as well as working with young people in high schools and things but I will share one of mine which is some young girl I love and I still do unlawful to read a going to the museums and libraries with some sort of my escape from some of the traumatic stuff stuff that was happening in my my childhood and I remember going to the library and looking different being Mexican American and native American. I remember having my books. Check out in a few kids came by and I it was not an accident. They literally pushed me down and of course I was upset. I was fairly young. I think I must have been around eight eight and what I remember as I was trying to not cry and pick up in all sorts of messages in me like I should know better why all these messages critical the critical self about what I could have done and all of a sudden there's hands there and it's the librarian who is helping me pick up the books but I remember her taking her hand under my Chin and just lifting up just the slightest and smiling at me never said anything and I felt like this woman was practicing mindfulness being presidency and for a moment I wish it was I wish I could have practiced more but for that moment I could feel in the presence of someone else being really present to another being in carrying that you don't need a lot of words words but I also had who's able to connect to myself that this was not my fault and that I'm not alone own and that she was there so I think that's one of the areas where I felt bad mindfulness. Well it was president and she helped show me that again to go there because that was part of my teaching for my grandmother my mom to be able to do that but when you're in the midst of the something bad happening wing it can be especially as a young person difficult to do but they are taking a breath being present to the good things things that were around me which in this case was the was the librarian in other cases was being around and seeing birds the trees to I'd like rebound the and reconnect me too that this isn't my whole life my whole story. This is a bullying and being mindful can help me be better better about where I am and how I am and how I wish to be in the world that is a beautiful story and speaking of birds. I know the red cardinal is a bird that you mentioned in the book you talked about Nico and story about Nico in the turtle you brought up is a sacred symbol. Can you tell us about the turtle in the Red Cardinal and their significance was in the gift of hope mom both my sons had blessing ways not the same as a baptism at all but it's is basically from a tribe getting really initiated connected a clear ceremony of you belong and so at a box came in a ceremony for my youngest one in my youngest one Nikko was only twenty months old at the time and who's just a beautiful ceremony Emoji and he had me take off Nikko's little shirt because he had the earth and Nikko he was about to start painting his body and Nikko pushed. There's just hanaway and put his little fingers into the earth the powder and begin painting his own body Eve never seen this before and Eddie's face. Is it hard faces of the thirteen of us. A circle were just like mesmerized this little child could do this and then Eddie set. I set him down on the floor at Eddie gave to him Eddie not only being the longest over thirty years of leader on the Sundance for the people he also made flutes and so we had made this flute for Nico and at the top of the was at the end of it was this little turtle and at the place where you would blow hello into the food was this carnal and he explained to Nikko that she was this little turtle and that the cardinal would forever be there for or him watching over and that what nickel needed to understand even as this little turtle that everything mattered every rethought in every step no matter how small it was was important and that he was sacred and so I we still hold that had that flute loot when he finally finished his college moved his own place. I'll take that but it was so very powerful and I want to close. The stories of the cardinal is so important written power power every animal. Every creature is sacred but it's not that we worship the animals are the beings is the characteristics of them that we know we could emulate that they're teaching us and we're teaching them that we're all connected but at the end of that Eddie sat down and began drumming and chanting and my son who's five and a half years older soon within about seven six or seven at the time sitting next to Eddie and Nico Starts Stance and Bruce the way he was dancing. It's not like a twenty month old like a dance. It was powerful in Nikko said I could here him say Eddie. How does he know at is he not do that and Eddie said Alex the ancestors are with your brother? The ancestors are with you. They ancestors are with all of us. We only need to remember Nikko Remembers Remembers. I love that story while and I loved the book for Sacred Gifts at for sacred gifts dot com Anita. This has been amazing as we move forward. I want to ask you five quick answer questions so just thirty second answers would be perfect. Here's the first question I need to tell us who is one person who has influenced mindfulness in your life. Yes well right now. I'm thinking of Eddie Box Fox the story I just told you about ready could be silent. Eddie could be present to where he could turn and see this just the little point to the light on a leaf on Aspen tree and the joy that that brought by being present beautiful. How is mindfulness affected your emotions anita huge because emotions part of the thing about emotions is there again they make it seem like that's all there is in that they could go on and on and all all this whereas I understand that emotions are part of being a human being but just like anything they're meant like the seasons like the time of the day like anything they are met net to to go there meant to be released not held onto so mindfulness being in that practice has helped me to be able to release emotions? It's as they're meant to be released rather than being held on to tell us how breathing is part of your mindfulness always has been yes breathing thing but all different kinds of breathing so the deep breathing to really go down into your whole body that just like roots me like oak tree when I see both cleanses but it's just like rudeness but also the fast quick breath to waken me when I would go hunting as a child by dishes. This is elders taught me like if you're starting to get sleepy than do the short breast and Waken you and it was always awakening Bruce. There's this whole joy in the journey of awakening awakening awaiting that affects our behavior in our actions beautiful. If you could recommend a book related to mindfulness what would that it'd be well of course you're with your right and I'm so proud in honored to have to be on your show but also high spend a lot. It's hard to pick one because I'm a member of the Transformational Leadership Council and so Michael Back with I mean there's so many so many leaders Marianne Williamson and just all their works are being mindful da who is amazing consultant and mindful teacher Michael Teacher and not going to be much help there. I I just think pickup one start with Bruce's pick up a book and kick it into the practice. You probably will realize you've already been doing that because that's part of just your own sacredness but you'll be able to go much further when you get that kind of mentoring through a book or in person from someone yes absolutely true crew. Are there any APPS that you would recommend. Maybe APPs that that you use or any of your clients or anybody you know that can help with mindfulness mind movies. is one of the APPS that I have and Natalie lead well wonderful in having people become more mindful and then also in manifesting using the law of attraction. I think her her her work is powerful. Deep and yet so berry simple made simple even though it's drawing a lot of neuroscience as well as I I believe some of the digital squeezed him that it's usable so I I like that happened my movies that's great yeah no put all of this into our show notes and of course mindful tribe checkout for sacred gifts dot com and Anita's book the four sacred gifts.

"Man who murdered my father will you could imagine agent. I could feel my mom. She was a very solid short woman but very solid. I could feel her shaking. I was just and then women that I had to tell you Mrs Sanchez my husband was a good man. He never would have killed your husband. If he knew he was Mexican and native American he thought he was black and she went on to start saying bad things about black people and I remember Merav shaking even more and she's finally shouted at her stop. You don't even know what you're saying. Don't even know what you're teaching your son I want you to I know that I'm going to try really hard to pay for your soul that you get off my porch and that night my mom said something that forever or a wise woman wisdom it doesn't have anything to do with age education through through what we know that for mindfulness right and she sat a six kids down and she said this you need to understand a white man murdered your father not the white race I will say at one more time and I will not say it again. A white man barter her father not the white race and then she opened the Kansas City newspaper where I grew up in Missouri and she showed a picture that was my father laying on bar four with blood around his head and she's now this this you this is racism. This is in the newspaper would ever a person of color whenever a black man you know Asian native American. She didn't say for color was an attorney back then she she made all the debris. If that something violent has gone up in the paper full but if a white person some him they never have that because they treat them with dignity knitting respect like a human being that we have to change and then it took years neatly I went to school college. At Sixteen I started sorry working corporations in my mid twenties and in rooms doing diversity inclusion we're hearing white men and women who talked about their parents teaching them that they were better than people of color but they also said they loved their parents but they were not they do not believe that and they were delivering their life in a different way and what happened to me. Bruce is that dream of that day that happening lived in me for many any many years I started having that dream again of a white woman and her son only everything in here everything word for word but I couldn't see the white voice his face he was gone it was really creepy and then over time with hearing incorporations the circles of white men and women's sharing what what they have been taught in that they were releasing and creating something new allow me to then one day had that night a dream where I could see the young boy space. I mean to this day. If I were to meet this man I would know who he was and what I I hope for him is that he had a good life. 'cause what about thirteen year old Anita didn't understand because she was so faint pilled with pain and suffering. Was that that summer day I lost my father but that's summer day. Young white boy lost his father doing grew up knowing his father was a murder and and today if I knew what I knew back then I would open the door and said come in. Let's talk. It can't take a lot of time to heal and it's worth it and it can be a snap where with a practice you you could just release things not pretending not doing a mind thing. We'll I'm going to act as if you truly you can release it. All of it is possible. It requires your your choice you choosing consciously are and are unconsciously you could be making those choices and you will be rewarded with avarice and that's just so wonderful and you are wonderful storyteller. I love the story about how you are fighting this whole thing about writing your doctorate paper and and you're just fighting it fighting fighting it and then you just you just they said you know to what was it grandfather and grandmother how some people would call it God mccown God yeah and you said if you want me to write this send. What did you say? Send me a sign so yeah send me aside. Tell us this man slam the door. All while think of my mother would just be horrified cheered me cursing grandma GRANDPA. They're like that and when I looked out these big windows in my house an eagle flew by so I put my hands on my hips and I said okay all right every morning by get up at five o'clock to go the bathroom all come out here. Look out the windows and if the so you don't flies by that I'll go downstairs and write for three hours okay so we took three a little over three months. Every day. I went out and darn if there wasn't an eagle that fly fly. That's not a usual occurrence fly and worst of all bruce is so I would go down and right for three hours and then some mornings I come up at eight o'clock side right provide eight come up to make my breakfast and I sit down and another Darn Eagle would fly back by the window and I have to go back downstairs and write for another three hours but what magic so many different things one is that you know they're other beings that that we're not necessarily taught indigenous people. I think other people are too that they make the connection you know the trees are there for the water. Is there for for us. The four legged the wing and all were all connected where all our precious relations were all connected but ben is when I realized that there had been and for some time the eagles are part of helpers to me and they wanted this book written because minding my phd they wanted noted that down and it was important for me to be able to move into some of the places CEOS of Fortune one hundred corporations in places to have that was important but I only could have happened because of the eagles the eagles every day and I was true to my word that's really important. They helped me every day to get that and in your early days you wore armor. You described it as your illusion of separateness armor Tillerson vote what because all that I heard that happened to me as a trial with the rapes and stuff and then with the murder of my father and then go on. I'm a Latina Azteca second woman young girl. All that stuff is that I started putting our rouce I was going to say no. One's GonNa hurt me. I'm GonNa go through life on my own. I'm GonNa do anyway you know and I just put up this armor just really tough barely smiling and stuff and what I found when I went away to the University of Colorado at age sixteen the action was seventeen. The first year was in Missouri other all these indigenous people there I start connecting them and then all these white folks and Mexican Americans and I just my community just kept getting bigger and they kept saying me as a leader and so they'd have me speak for them. In the MIC. I've never had trouble speaking in front of people so and Iran ramp pursued by they were seeing all these thing in me that there was this thing in my mind that was saying I'm a fraud imagined other people that are listening to said they have of those most like Oh. This isn't true they. You know I'm just they don't see the real need it will see all of me but what it happened by being seen by others helped me to start lowering this armor and lowering and lowering it to where it allowed and I realized I kept the bad stuff out at least a lot of it but I was keeping out the good stuff that armor that we build in our mind are really literally build. Well it keeps out the good stuff and one can't live like that. We need each other. There's what I say what the elders taught me over the years is that human beings can have the condition of being lonely human beings are never we're never locked and when that finally realization should sunk in I am never alone. I have the water that's going through. That's nourishing me and the food earth the birds the trees providing shade then then I have my mother my father my brothers my sisters my friends there. Virtually we don't do anything alone. We are always connected. It is the mind that state of loneliness and so we can train it being my focus trainer so we don't fall down into that but can come back to the abundance that we're part of so that we can come back to knowing what we need not take too much because we can be sufficient to that seven generations out. We'll have plenty for everyone so that armor came down really from the gift of unity is others wanting to be joining in Dan and it looks like from the outside being their leader their student body president like I was but it over time I actually dropped further and further or giving accepting them giving to them being in flow that debt really then I realized Oh my gosh the power our really connecting collaborating with people when you don't have armor up on my gosh there's so much energy so many solutions that were able to cremate folklore each other's wives for the larger communities lives. Both I'm talking about for the Community of human beings as well as the other beings are right yeah. Oh Yeah I just love how you're able to communicate all of this as we talk but also in the book and one of the things is that you learned from the time you're young child was how to listen with the softest part of your ear and you've already alluded you did that. Tell us what that really needs will first of all it means you have to shut your mouth so we learned very little from my second grandmother about listening so it was like there is nothing come out of your mouth and then it's truly being present with the soft partier the south is part of your heart so what that it means what happens and she didn't use this language as a little girl but that you were present to the actual being nasty aliveness somebody else or something else that they have made or what is part of their being that you don't have to compete with. I don't have to sound off because I am present to what they are. So the lesson one of the lessons she taught me in sharing this because I love is bring my grandmother back who are lost in the sixties physically lost but she's always been around at aged for my little sister who then was prop was only about two over two and my older sister who's a couple of years older than me. We were staying at our home and early one morning morning on a Saturday morning. She got us up. It was still dark. Got Us a win outside with summertime and we were by her garden and it was August so the sunflowers were out big time but she had a stand there and as the sun rose we know talking we just faced with sunfire was and every hour that day she stopped whatever we were doing and we'd go over to the sunflower and we'd move with the.

"Mindful tribe. I've just finished reading a book that impacted me in so so many ways I mean it was such a beautifully written book. It was so much about forgiveness. It was about shame it it was about so many things community and this book is written by a Brilliant Wise Generous Wolman woman who I have with me right here. Today I have the wonderful author Anita Sanchez. PhD Anita are you in mindfulness this mode today I am totally present. It feels so good to be here and to be a conversation with you. Finally that's great and you you know what when you read a book that impacts you and then you know you're going to be spending time with author. I mean that is an absolute gift. It really is and and I'm. I'm just so thrilled. Tell us what mindfulness means to you and Nita Yup mindfulness to me is about being present but let me explain explain it also in an indigenous way so in addition to sway. We get a choice every moment of every day to be there. Good medicine or bad medicine and good medicine is really about the mindfulness is basically saying that it's anyone or anything can help make this happen and it's putting get alignment the spiritual mental emotional and physical and when that is in alignment one is truly present able able to open heart mind body. Everything is present to what is so instead of the the crazy mind going off into pass into the future. We're allies have clarity in here in the living right now now anita. I talked about the book. I don't know if I mentioned the name of it is the four sacred gifts and the subtitle is indigenous wisdom for modern times and yeah such a wonderful book. You can check it out at four four sacred gifts dot com mindful tribe just going to share a little bit more about you Anita Anita Sanchez. PhD As tack and and Mexican American is a transformational leadership consultant. She's a speaker a coach and author of this book that I've been talking about Oh and she bridges indigenous teachings with the latest science to Inspire and equip women and men to enjoy meaningful full empower full lives and careers so one of the things that you do. Is You define indigenous so let's start there. Let's talk because your definition of indigenous indigenous really is everyone. All human beings are indigenous because we all are from the Earth every element innocence of of the Earth Water the stars so we are all indigenous but when I say indigenous in the context of today I'm talking about human beings people bowl who have stayed connection to the traditions to the connection to the earth through ceremonies dance through their oral history so that that that connection has not been lost whereas for many of us who are come from the earth bills cultural knowing that original original knowledge there was a there was a separation from it so that's when we talk about indigenous people were really talking about people nations Sion's and tribes all over the world who have kept that connection to the Earth your book the four sacred gifts outlines these four gifts this and the first one and has such a powerful gift is the power to forgive the unforgivable and at first of course when I started hardy to read the book I thought well what does that really mean the unforgivable and of course it wasn't long before I understood what it meant but maybe you can tell us what what does it mean. Forgive the on forgivable. The unforgivable is something that's fairly large for people so it's hard to define it for a particular person because sometimes it's accumulation of little hurts and mistreatments that become the big unforgivable but when I was talking about the big unforgivable I was thinking about some some of the things that pretty much every human being across all different cultures around the world will say his unforgivable by abuse this sexual abuse incest or the killing the annihilation of whole groups of people which was true for most many indigenous most people around the world it was about a radical us and they forgot that we were seat so they tried to bury us but as the saying goes we're seed so we remain so so that's when you think about those things that the hurt and mistreatment is so big so deep that each feels the allusion is as if it is unforgivable doubt certainly is in here in Canada. I know that it's just devastating to think of how we have treated indigent indigent people it's just so shameful and so sad and but it isn't just in Canada of course I mean it's it's it's it's not but it it just it hurts so much nothing you're but we you all are in the process what I see from the outside from us that a whole row that read that pathway to forgiveness because you have as a country acknowledged unlike in the US we haven't done a formal acknowledgement knowledge that you've acknowledged what happened the taking of sacred lands the taking of a water the killing of people putting people in boarding schools and it the let's go on in that list is actually pretty true for us as well only you all have acknowledged it and then you have actually put in place now education of all people in Canada but starting in elementary school about what is the true history rather than washing it over as most nations and countries due to only show the viewpoint of who is so called the winner of whatever the war whatever it was so it's very powerful because as I talked to my brothers and sisters of various tribes from Canada they shared with us you know the great works it. It still needs to happen but also have a different kind of lightness awareness ability to act because they have a whole whole nation that they are part of that has acknowledged what has been and it's not just past tense which in these two touche's that exist today day embedded in there is the favouritism is the bias conscious and unconscious bias towards the mainstream people versus the people who had already been there who had cared for the land and cared for each other yeah so true. Why should you forgive? That's one of the questions did you ask and I absolutely loved the answer because it gives you true freedom to help create positive change and that's not all. Let's talk more about why we should forgive its import. What I've found Bruce though is that it's hard for people to take in end the softest part of the year hearing in their mind and their heart why should do this? I'd like to percents what forgiveness is not because people mistake that and that's why they go oh I can't do this. Forgiveness doesn't mean that you forgot. Forgiveness doesn't mean that you don't seek justice to change systems that structure so that pain pain that hurt that mistreatment doesn't happen again. Forgiveness doesn't mean you're week or beach praying a whole group of people forgiveness as you mentioned it is a path to freedom is what I found is. The pathway not only to freedom is the freedom to find out and discover and live in a way that you truly unconditionally can love yourself. I never knew that hurts. Mistreatments unforgivable would stop me from being able to be a whole human and being enjoy of being who I am. What forgiveness allows you to take off all the way the heaviness the energy that we use? We only have so much energy every day that I was using in holding onto the upset the resentment of what happened and didn't happen happen in my life. Due to the incest that was part of my life from age four to thirteen or the murder of my father based on race is why he was killed taken for a black man back in the mid sixties and what happens is when you carry you that anger that resentment that Energy Nelson Mandela said it doesn't do anything to the person you're directed or the group of people it eats at you and so I hi actually came to a place in my teens and early twenties where I used to tell people or my well pain is so deep it big and my well joy is so small and that's a distortion. That's a lie that is the lie of the illusion of pain in her mistreatment new think that's all there is an worse Bruce Bruce worst of all is that you get so identified with the pain and hurt that you think that it's your identity and that is so untrue and when I could start feeling that out because of using the various skits why could start feeling that way. I began to discover that even though that my story are some things that many people will have never extended oh my gosh. How could you forgive that just unthinkable? It's not at all because what I realize is I put down the arm or when I put down this notion of separation I realize all the good things that were present present that I couldn't be present two because I was storing it in all the anger in the fight and so when I began to let that go more and more more of love for myself of the freedom and ability to be with other people and other beings all the teachers that I got as a child or my grandmother Hi there my mother than digital about us being one in connection began to fill my life and oh my Gosh I you come to a plate wait. Why did any way that you don't want any of these horrible things happening to other people however I also would never change my life because of the strength I think the post traumatic growth that I experienced from having gone through that so it's not at all idolizing the pain and mistreatment mm-hmm we need to stop there and there's movement all of the world to stop the mistreatment of women and girls and stop the racism and all of that but I am saying is that there's always a choice in the choices to get sacked in spiral downward in that also for all of is here is the choice of possibility to move move towards resilience towards growth towards ability to be president in the world in a way an understanding that gives you even then more ability to move forward free of a lot of fears because you've gone through such a process of letting go and forgiving? I loved how you you went through this step by step. How do you forgive here a ways? This is how I did it. This is how you can do it and you said you know it can take a long longtime or it can take an instant. You can simply decide just like that. I'm going to forgive this person and it can just take an instant. I mean that's incredible edible. It's it's true I am both to an I learn to hold open as I helped create the Grayson space for other people to empower themselves salves to to take to make choices that it could be any of those. I have a story All shorten it but I think is an important one so hard of the healing the forgiveness parts of it happened very quickly but one of them that took longer was the murder of my father. He worked in a steel mill. He get very dark in the summer are in one seven. He was also an alcoholic so one summer after work. He went to get his beer before he came home. He didn't know earlier that day of black men and white men were having an argument so while he sat there drinking his beer the white man returning just saw his profile and shot several bullets who is heading killed on the spot. Will I mean that's terrific. If it comes thirteen I had six brothers and sisters were from age nine to nineteen my mother seventh grade education and she always worked all the time but at that point you know I remember remember her ever not working to put us all through private school and just doing the best she could for all of us in education be Keelan but what happened the week after that was enough for anyone especially thirteen year old too just like what do I do with that but the year week after my father's murder a white woman and a young white boy who somewhere somewhere around my age came to the door and I was by my mother and she identified herself as the wife and the son of the.

Bear knows pizza with mama. Bear knows pizza. Hey, I heard bear knows what's gonna make a paleo version, man. They're all maybe they they are. I'm in now Leland, and I've I've always told and he should start his own food truck. I said, you know, he he does such a good job cooking. You really do want to give you some props on that one. I said I used to write a book, and then I think a food truck. So I think and food trucks near to dear your to your heart. I think your dad or your best friend who's who started a food truck in your mind. Started one he named it after my late mother called it Carol's, check wagon. That is cool. Yeah. He's got that. He does pizzas and burgers and fries and all that kind of stuff to to to my friends. Just started one Zeke and Anita Sanchez. They they make authentic Spanish food Mexican. Like her sausa-. I buy it from her by the pilots, and they just started a food truck as well. I catch us up on what's going on with through trucks. And by the way, just so, you know, my dad's food truck is in Arizona. So not John Hagel. I'm a free market saying, you know, and and apparently what's happened here. Like there was a meeting. I guess it was last week. I was talking to the will sasquatch Clark the other morning, and there were members of metro council that are interested in restricting where food trucks can part because they say that they take up, you know, one or two parking spaces, and that you know, that's not fair because you know, whatever, I guess other people can't part wherever the food truck is which I think is absolute bull malarkey because from what I understand every one of those food trucks pays for their parking. And then I'll put it this way. Let's say let's say Toni Monetti you and I were going to discuss a business deal, and and we met downtown. And so we met at a restaurant where we may be sat down. We would park in the parking area. We pay our parking fee, and we would go for it in the economy, right? Wasn't the difference between that and a park in a truck parts in the same spot and sells hamburgers from ten to two. And then pulls out and after they've paid their entire what what's the difference, man? I mean, it's ridiculous. Isn't this being driven by restaurants? That are saying, hey, this is unfair. They can park a half a block from me don't have to pay taxes on whatever. And I've worked hard to market my restaurant. And here's this food truck. Pulling up half a block away and stealing some of my people. Sure. I mean, that's that's obviously driving it. That's the way business works. I mean, people, you know, are always trying to get an edge on the competition. But I look at it this way food trucks that totally different animal than a sit down restaurant. Yeah. Said if I'm going to meet with you. And have a dinner or if I'm gonna take my wife out to dinner. I'll listen, I love the sit down restaurants. We have in downtown bull. We go down there. You know, you have a nice dinner out. We sit down we have a quiet dinner. Everything's great. But you know, twelve thirty in the afternoon if you're at work downtown, and you just need a burger and fries because you're trying to get done and get back to work who trucks perfect for that. It's a totally different clientele. It's a totally different experience. And I think it's a huge part of our cities foodie identity, and we're always bragging about what a great foodie city. We are. Then we need to encourage experiential eating like this, which is what, you know, people get loyal to their food trucks. I like this winter I liked that one. You know, let it be they roll around it. If you're doing a sit down restaurant, and you're paying all those taxes and stuff back the choice. You made you decided to go with that type of program. You could start a food truck and some businesses that are laying brick and mortar restaurants have both. I think it's great. I it seems to me like this metro council is really concerned about legislating people out of business. And by the way, your your your your salaries driven by the tax dollars. Sometimes I wish they would just fund the police fund the fire department fix potholes and then sit down and shut up. Yeah. Get out of the way. Yeah. Totally agree with you, look, we've we've told these different side of this whole talk off thing. I am. But you know, we we can't have that. There was an article in the courier journal the other day about how millennials are choosing peer cities over local part of that's because younger people. They like experiences left, and they like things, and so if we if we say, no to every potential fun experience, which I think, you know, eating a food truck is kind of of that a lotta times it'll be, you know, maybe maybe sometimes it's a family from another country that immigrate tear, they bring their culture to their food truck. What did you do some kind of fusion, you know, that's an experiential situation. So you experience those authentic Mexican tacos or whatever that part of what makes downtown also. Yeah, I just got back from DC and in the street in front of all these world class museums. Right. These are the these are the museum so the mall is what they call it. Where? They have all these museums. All there is is a row of maybe thirty or forty food trucks just parked on the street. And that's what that's how you get a snack because there's no restaurants in in that entire area. But top golf got off the air that got passed. Yep. So they even went a step further and said, oh, yeah. You can have those lights to on the driving, by the way, we're going to have the noise ordinance extended the midnight, right? That'd be great with me. Man. I look I thought did you guys see the courage an article about a reporter up to the West Chester up in Cincinnati location. And couple of neighbors are like, yeah. I we were a little skittish. But turns out it's not that big a deal and all these restaurants open and all these other businesses open. I think you're gonna see kind of a revival of business in that area. I mean, Oxmoor was having some struggles or whatever at least it appears as such. I'm sure they wouldn't say that. But you know, there there were every time I went in there. There was another store that was closed down. This is going to bring more stores, and it's going to bring more restaurants in. Oh, yeah. Oh, no, no. It'll be it'll be a rebirth. That's my neighborhood. And they took out the food court in Oxmoor for some unknown reason a couple of years ago, they took the whole second level out and took the food court out. And then they sort of started to bolster the mall, just down the block and. And they've kinda left Oxmoor by itself. Therefore for some reason, but I agree this this will be a huge huge boom to Oxmoor just to re establish Saint Matthews as the shopping corridor. Hey, it's one more great fun thing to do and Louisville. You know, I mean, these top cops are popping up everywhere. And here's the thing. I know that topped off that they weren't gonna they were gonna go. Global if they would've gone to Clarksville right across the river. We built these big bridges, and then they're more business friendly on the other side of the river. So if we don't do something to keep businesses attracted to this area. We're gonna find out we spent almost a billion dollars just to send everybody the other side. And by the way, we built two bridges to send them to the other side, right? All right. All right. All right. All right. You guys you could go you guys can call each other and FaceTime as you clean your guns. A little bit later. We appreciate it. Leland conway. We'll take a short break. But first I want to remind you about lots of pasta, lots of pasta, Louisville dot com is the website. If you want something catered for a party coming up, no matter what you got going on. But lots of pasta is a grocery store, and it's a deli. So what you wanna do is go on by get a deli sandwich. I promise you. It's the best deli. You've ever been to right. Okay. I don't care if you've gone to an authentic deli in Chicago or New York, you go to lots of pastas deli. You won't be disappointed. I promise I won't go in there and the little grocery shopping team in all right? Lots of pasta in Saint Matthews on Lexington road.

"Or whether you're two hundred thousand person corporation. It's about relationships, you know, technology is wonderful. Won't wanna get rid of any event. We have more great things happening being created, but it's the relationships as the people that are the ones that make things happen. So we're, we understand our connection, rather the illusion of separateness. Everything is possible and that's where it is run everything including reversing global warming, including, oh my gosh, we had to lay off, you know, third of our workforce, how are we gonna ever? But everything is possible when you bring people together and really acknowledged them. So that power of unity is really core to having thriving individuals as well as thriving. Anything. We create our businesses in organizations and communities. So I feel like we are not as unified as. As we used to be leased, you know, here in the United States with all of the political infighting, it just seems like it's the opposite of unity, which is why unity is such a gift, right? But I mean, what do you think some of the things that we need to start doing differently to sort of express in embody this gift of unity? Exactly. I agree with you there so much division, divisiveness, not only in this country. It really is around the world on just about every issue Sperry painful time. And yet at this very time where it feels in some ways, dark is actually, that's when the white can come through the brightest, and that's where we're calling on the leaders, your listeners that they can come forward. And so that really gets into not only calling on remembering when you will able to connect and do something unimaginable with other people. And if you haven't yourself, then what you've read about what just possible. So for example, a tech company that I worked with their product was become. Pretty much, you know, a commodity and it was fairly flat and they they wanted to shift. We did a global initiative where we helped ignite the leadership using positive psychology and indigenous wisdom around the world. And what they were able to do is to be able to see tap into that wisdom inside themselves and with each other watts conversation. What's listening listening, listening listening to yourself and others spanning Dacian to everything. And they were able in a year to go from twenty five billion dollar to twenty nine billion dollar operation in a flat market. So you can find him numbers and there's all sorts of stories. Both small and big of when people do some fundamentally different things which is to first and foremost to listen, listen to yourself and listen to others, and then till put yourself around supportive relationships. People who don't always agree with you, but are also after your best interest and the best interest of which collectively try. To create that's really critical and then move into positive action. The GPS does not work. If you're standing still, we've got to get through the fear. That's why the forgiveness is important healings, important, so we can move through and really being unity and create some amazing important things that I feel like life itself is calling us to create an every sector of our lives. Yeah, absolutely. So what about the third? Yes, and that's where healing really connects. Nice started go into that third gift. They gave us was the power to heal in healings. Wonderful thing. I know often when these can't, we just be done with the healing. No, it's a gift. We get to heal every day because every day there's going to be something that causes bruises bomb, psychological hurts, whatever it is. There would be those things as well as the long term ones that we have to keep working on, find different levels of healing. They healing is at process. Some of the key things that I just talked about with unity. Actually, forgiveness are key to all of these gifts, listening support, relationships, unconditional love yourself. So this is one of the things that people in indigenous wisdom tells us all over the world is that we can't give we don't have. We can act like in fake it, but the more regret into self care, self-love tr. Transforming how we are being with ourselves. It been is much easier to do that with other people and with the earth itself that where we're doing our business in our relationship to make sure that everything is thriving. Right, absolutely. And in the fourth, I love the for me too. Yeah. So the fourth get is the gift of hope, the power of hope in action, and we know hope is an energy source. There's things run in about this all forget about hope, but I'll tell you, none of the ancient wisdom traditions around the world have forgotten about hope. They understand this is a source don't know everything through our five senses. This hope is a way of seeing our knowing something that there aren't any facts that which show us that that's possible. And we know we have all sorts of technological advances getting to the moon, all these different things that people imagine people call on what we call in indigenous communities, the great mystery, but we can call it spirit. You can call it all. You can call it universe energy, whatever we call it the Bajic that happens when we just sit still and allow to arise what might to some people seem unimaginable so that power of hope in action is would allows us to move in. Do some of the leaps actually rather than even just the incremental things. It's exciting when people take hold of these four gifts and save. Oh, oh, yes. And this is inside work as well as outside in relationship to others to have Bertha thriving life and as well as thriving organizations. Absolutely. And I interviewed a very powerful business coach. Her name is Libby Gill, not too long ago a week or two ago, and she talks about how hope is a business strategy, hope, highly strategy, and I got so much positive feedback from her podcast because people were like, I never thought about it like that. So I love to say that it was part of the four sacred gifts because this gift of hope is what keeps us going. Right. Absolutely. And thank you for named go Libby, Libby Gill. I think that's great because hope we do all sorts of where people in again, we draw different kinds of wisdom traditions of how to do that, but it's every. From just guided imagery to be together in play to imagining, you know, some positive thing that you want to come forward. There's all different kinds of ways to night hope. And I want to say this is really important. Hope is a choice. People cannot take away your whole. I mean, really difficult things. I don't mean to minimize the some of the difficulties that people are having. However, no one can take away from you, and that's what makes his innate amazing, powerful gift, and you can draw on that and drawn drawn and it will pull you. And we know now from brain signs, once you get this hope, the magic nation, even though it's not concrete yet just beginning, you begin your whole body, your mind, your motions began to go toward that and that spirit in action. That's hoping action. Absolutely. So how can people find your book? How can they reach you? Give us some of your contact information. Yes, they can find me at Sanchez, tennis dot com.

"Welcome to the female insight zone. A podcast dedicated to share insights from women who have made an indelible Mark in business and the pathway took to soar. Welcome to the female insight zone. This is Mary Beth Kozinski today I'm interviewing Anita Sanchez PHD. She's as tech and a Mexican American. She's a transformational leadership consultant speaker coach and author of the new international bestselling book, the four sacred gifts, and I hope that she will talk much about this. She bridges indigenous teachings with the latest science to inspire and equip women and men to enjoy meaningful, empowered lives and careers. So welcome Anita to the female insight zone. Thank you very much excited to be here. So the first question that I have an interview, lots of amazing people like you on the show and many of them. You know, if they're coach, they talk about this concept of transformational leadership, but I wonder, is this another buzzword? How do you do this differently? How do you look at transformational leadership? Well, I think that you could say yes on both counts in terms of it has become a buzzword, which I think is really kind of sad. However, when people began to actually do their work, it is not about a small step. Change that incremental we're talking about transforming. We're talking about a major shift in the way. One is being in the world or the wild one is thinking in the world and it right now with all the things happening in every sector that you can imagine in terms of divisiveness and other things, we really need to bring our best. So we need to bring it up in alignment. You know the best of who we are and that's why transformational leadership to me is so exciting. Do you think that there is a being gap today in corporations and in companies with people that are not necessarily transformational leaders? Unfortunately, that's the case. Unfortunately, there is still some mindset that you're managing people people. Don't need to be managed. They need to be inspired. They need to have models that show retired about being part of dizziness. I bring all the organization science a business, but I also bring indigenous wisdom and it's about bringing an alignment, the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical into alignment of every employee. And one does that by being really an inspiring leader who is truly transformational, which means there's really care about both the doing Carta business also on how you and your people are being as a care for them. Their whole wellbeing is a big part of this. So talk about the side that you bring in that you were just talking about the indigenous wisdom. What is this and how did you get involved with either indigenous populations or just talk a little bit about that because I think that's a really interesting story for us. Yes, while I'm hard indigenous, Aztec is my tribe moso Mexican American. And so I've always been growing up with elders, my grandmother particular nationally, but then elders throughout various traditions, but definitely in the Americas. And one of the things that I found in working for forty plus years with corporate leaders, whether it's unfortunate, five hundred or entrepreneurial new startups and things is that people can learn watts things. There's lots of knowledge that one needs to acquire to be able to do the doing however, what people are hungry for his wisdom and what I found after doing this work for a couple of decades, I was like, wait a minute. What I was hearing people hankering for more Moore's. Let's spend more time on being good medicine to each other, which was about the wisdom, and that's what we're hearts are hungry for we have an overload of information. However, we're hungry for our hearts really need leaders needed. So. Spratly is the wisdom and that's what we want to tap into. Yes. So I know in your book, the four sacred gifts. You have drawn insight from indigenous elders from Asia Africa in Europe and the Americas and talk about little bit about your research and how you went about writing this book. Well, it all came about because volunteer work of is doing one of these gatherings teaching young people who are gonna go into corporations, how to do it be in corporations, but how do you do that in a way that keeps you feeling the sense of being a whole even being rather than cut off parts of yourself? And we know as women and his men at different times. We think we have to cut off parts of ourselves, but that is separation is what causes suffering. So the Ford gifts that indigenous elders came together in the nineties. They built this beautiful nervous hoop with a hundred eagle feathers. And at the end of that weekend, they put four. Gifts in there for all humankind. Not just indigenous people for all time to remember that. We're in relationship with each other and I expect you'd like me to say what the forgives offer, everyone. I know what they are. I want you to say them, yes, yes, because they're so simple wisdom, which often wisdom is is about a living them. That's a little become difficult. So the four gifts to help us build harmony in connection with people, earth and spirit are the first the power to forgive the unforgivable. So let's talk about this first second. So terrible things happen. And so this part of the wisdom, one of the four sacred gifts is tune just simply forgive. It is true actually, no. Once that it would be easy. Forgiving. And when you look at organizations, both their people and their leaders are hanging onto all these hurts mistreatments. So forgiveness doesn't mean forgetting something where you were hurt or mistreated. It doesn't mean you don't seek to put it in right relationship, seek Justice in some restructuring or whatever you need. But it does mean you get free from being imprisoned by that hurt mistreatment that then you keep playing out projecting on your current situation. So part of the work is clearing that for leaders and for their employees that forgiving them, forgivable all to find that you actually then can call on using your energy for what you want to create and that may be seeking. Justice may be changing. Some policies are ways of operation. However, you are free see clarity rather than reworking what was well, that makes a lot of sense. So how about the second one. Yeah, the second is the power of unity. You know a lot about because I love your books, unity, of course, it's all entrepreneurial or
