"Conscious. I was like okay. Well how do you find conscious because like this is. Glass of water is conscious. Yeah And he's well. It's that they know that that the its unity. And i was like okay. Well you can know that and still murder someone you can know that and still be a mean person and so it's a real question mark like at what point on your evolutionary scale these stopping dick and i don't know the answer to that About regularity i think it's more about starting to do things like study. The vitas do things like study. The philosophies 'cause meditations a hardware upgrade its def- fragging your brain computer but i would recommend once you get a new computer. You also get new software. now. I don't really talk about that to people who are just coming into ziva. Because they're already scared that its doctrine or dogma religion and then i'm going to be telling them how to live their lives and i'm not even the betas aren't telling have your life. It's really just. Hey this is how nature's working you can either get an accordance with this and be in flow or you can be rigidly attached to how you think life should be showing up. Nature could just keep bashing you against the rocks your choice. But it's not going to be like thou shalt not drink thou shalt not cheat bow shalt not lie. It's just look if you lie. You're going to feel just takes a lot of energy if you're going to drink okay. Well there's there's a cost to that but there's no showed there shouldn't actually according to the betas. There's no such thing as good or bad. There's no such thing as right or wrong. There is only creation maintenance and destruction once you understand that nature is going to support people who are supporting it and it's dominant theme which is creation that the more you're leading with creation and innovation and evolution of nature support. You're get and what you feel that been like. Why would you wanna stay maintenance because the illusion of safety but.

"Crying so it was just like i just very year just method. I miss the community. I miss meditating in a group. I missed the sacredness that happens of feeling the community they created because it there's a level of intimacy that happens humidity in a groups. Like having sex with someone. All your chuckers open up when you eat with someone you have sexism and when you meditate with someone so there's a level of intimacy can be created in those specific union times that is special and so there's that so i do miss it But i think your question is i. Could we get you know. Thirteen thousand people together and barclays center and send out some love to new york city and help heal the collective stress from the pandemic. Is that the question. Yeah so look. This is my big dream. I was sharing my way in here. Like my dream is to like do lead. Meditations the stadiums of people and yes for the people who are in there but also like live streaming to other stadiums around the world and the really wrapping the whole planet with this brain heart. Coherence and this is baby. Baby baby science. So i don't want to speak out of turn you know there's some like i'll call it pseudo science from like seventies and eighties. That was happening. It was called the maharishi effect where they were bringing meditators and they would have a certain number of them and then they would you know see that that was causal too violent crimes rate crime rates dropping in washington dc. I i have not seen empirical thing that said that is causal and correlated. Because you know you've probably seen statistics charts where it's like rates of toothpaste flavors in conjunction to dungarees brands. Like it's just there's a million ways you can chart that stuff. So i don't want to speak out of turn but i can share anecdotally and what i hope is true. And what seems to be the case based on what happens it at zebra in the groups. What happens when you get a whole seating people just singing the same song. What's the miraculous healings that are happening. These jobs benza events. right it's there's much anecdotal proof now to suggest that nothing is happening. And so this is where. I really hope that neuroscience goes like. I'm like we don't need any more studies to tell us that meditation is good for us. There are literally thousands if you need another study to convince you start meditating. You're just not looking at the literature. So let's stop doing that. Let's stop funding that research. We don't need any more of it and let's start researching this and ask everyone. Starting to do these wearables you know the ordering and a bit bit. It's like we're not that far away from being able to check mask in a city and that to me seems to be the easiest thing to really quantify stress. How acidic is your skin. And if you could do that on the wearables and you just click a button. It's like. I approve apple of giving me this data. We get ten thousand people barclay center. We blast everyone in new york with Love and healing and just see if anything changes and like why not skin is headed. It's so interesting. I noticed like i don't know if it's correlated to acne but whenever i feel the you know when you feel that adrenaline and you're like yeah i'm stressed here. I literally now will be like fuck. I'm going to get a pimple in the next two days like i know it's about like exact. Yep so yeah. i'm curious about also also shouldn't your smell like if you're like. Oh my gosh just think of the interview. Or oh my god i just got to meet gonna doyle like nervous and then later on you smell like. That's your small time nervous. We're talking to a friend to Rosie kosta and also she was talking about associate for an example. You go into a house. And it's like a haunted house that a lot of times that your electromagnetic field or your body or your aura can tell that the house is haunted or that something. Traumatic is more. So that's something traumatic has happened in the house because there is that skin acidity when someone when a traumatic event happens to someone their skin releases that center that smell and we can like subconsciously. Pick up on that. But wouldn't this be happening in the now and if it was haunted that would be a passed away. How would that. So i guess the skin acidity fix is sticks in the space and i guess we can pick up on that happening or that sent or something. And that's what's happening in weird energetic spaces i dunno. I dunno could have made it up. I'm sure there's some big there. Yeah i don't know not just completely right after as.

"Reminding yourself of that connected. Ever-present everything nece inside of you versus. I need to like really active included alenia or try and squeeze palm or muscles in the up in it and this is not negate. Those other practices like they're beautiful. They're just different. That as meditation is becoming so popular it really would behoove us to become more specific with our vernacular. Because if you just say meditation that could mean kuni breath work that could be spins a guided manifestation. That could be a walking while. Walk in the woods. And i get a little snobby about it when i'm like that's called walking in the woods. That's called cooking. That's going to exercise. Meditation is i would define meditation is when you're accessing verifiable state of consciousness that is different than waking sleeping or dreaming and where you're giving your body rested his five times deeper than sleep. That's the emily fletcher version of of meditation. But again i'm not have been a purist now. What i think will be very helpful. Is that we all just decide like an umbrella term right and then we have the different like this is mindfulness. This is manifesting this meditation. This is breath work. This is sex practice versus. Everyone's like oh. I was texting with mexico. I was doing a texting with his girlfriend meditation. And he's like totally totally. Mindfulness with something people are yeah. I've never i've never been someone. That actively meditates. I feel like more and more. I've been hearing about just kind of like these larger group. Meditations of like wanting to shift the collective consciousness with a sm- like a smaller group compared to the whole of the earth by and having like the data behind how it's shifted crime in a city or things like that. So i'm curious what your experience has been with group meditations and partha and beneficial. So i love it so much. I miss it so much. I have a physical space and so new york and it's beautiful.

"Sort of get get the engines going to read and i also recommend like just go watch the status movie. You can find 'cause. I read that book that i read book on the bus in chicago. I read the bus to work A second time when you said sex magic so magic specific to sex or is it really just like that. Feeling of ecstasy and bliss. Good question so and i was again. Shut layla martin. Because i'm everything. I know about sex veggies. I've learned from her So it is the art of creating your own pleasure and your own feeling good and sending that energy to your dream so you can practice magic on your own or with a partner or in a group and it's it's pretty simple you would just imagine you go back to the question that we use. Zeba what would i love right now. So simple what. Would i love right now. Not what i want not between me. Not what's gonna look on instagram. Not what my parents want. Not what my partner. What what. I love right now. You love it puts you into spirit now but you in the present moment and you ask that you actually get clear on the vision before you start seeing like a little slice of life a little snapshot and it's nice to have a snapshot sort of is indicative of multiple dreams coming true like you're in the house with the person talking about the thing toasting the close of the deal with your partner and your dream home anyone wants money partner and home right So so it's one snapshot that gives you that slice of life and then you're you're basically creating and cultivating pleasure and you start to move this energy up from the base from the root shocker. All the way up to the crown shock at the moment of peak pleasure in you would send that energy in that bliss. Let's imagine sending it to the vision. Do the thing that you're creating to the manifestation really. Not that dissimilar from meditation because orgasm you're moving beyond yourself. You're no longer emily fletcher. You know sitting in a chair in space. You just are right and same in meditation. You're actually practising dying. You're moving beyond the left. The right you're connecting the piece of you that is connected to everyone and everything and so there are some similarities to it. It's just sex is more focused and more concentrated. Seems like jodi spends a to where it's like brain heart coherence. Yes you're sort of like imagining getting to know the future self in the quantum field and then sort of like connecting with that and sending that energy out to that. Yeah and if you'll notice a lot of his guided manifestations he's bringing the energy from the root of the third i and his whole deal is activating the pineal glamorous and his eye bothers that can create d. m. t. Which is the god chemical like on your own as melatonin which we all producing naturally anyway but you can convert that melatonin into d by activating this. Like an opening up all the energy centers in the body delaney awakening right. Yeah that's the first time that you do activate n. Through that way. The first time gaining i don't know i don't know that it's exclusive that experience like it might be more subtle for some people. I think that it is for ziva. Because eva is more subtle for a slow shedding right and just bit by bit day by day. Meditation by meditation. Your sloughing off all this old layers of stress that's keeping you from the blissett fulfil and enlightenment. That is already inside of you that you're already perfect. You were born perfect. Everything else is stress. And so we're shutting away. Those layers versus like. Oh let me. I need to do something. Or activate something in order to access gods like according to the vitas. It's like you're all you're already. Yes just reminding yourself that ziba it's all about dx citation. It's all about rest. It's all about.

"Save you money to your have crash three. It's not going to give you insomnia you're gonna have to and tomorrow morning and that's not even talking about the fact that when you're meditating you're increasing neural plasticity versus if you're chemically amping yourself then you are. There's a cost to that right. And dave aspect gets mad at me when i started talking about that like i gave a talk at google. It was called. And i'm putting my profound the more as a great friends. Some people are really good. Some people are good coffee drinkers. Meaning good for them for me personally. Coffee is toxic like already talk way too fast for meditation. Teacher copy numbers like you need. Show that so capping can be very good for certain doses. Our bodies types. But for me. Because i'm quite vodka. Dominant it it. It's like speed for However this talk. I gave google called y. Meditation is the new caffeine. And the argument i was making is that it takes the same amount of time actually cost you less money if you do the math over a few years and it's generated like the benefits are cumulative and you're healing your brain versus if you're over caffeine eating. You're not giving your body energy. You are disg- disabling your brain's ability to feel tired. Because caffeine is very similar to a chemical denison which is what your brain produces to tell you that you're tired. And because the caffeine blocks those at denison receptors. You feel like you're awake but then when the caffeine goes away your brain has all the wild and producing that a denizen. Isn't it floods in wom super tired now on top of that when you sort of hijack the nervous system your flooding it with adrenaline you can put it with adrenaline cortisol. So it's a bit of a five alarm thing and over time that can just cost something to the body now one cup of coffee in the morning. Fine it's not gonna hurt you but if you're overdoing on top of exhaustion this is where we start to get into trouble. And so i'm like well. Why don't you spend less money and do a thing. That's going to give you more energy. A won't give you insomnia and if you're not putting like sugar and milk and also like you know win win win. it's totally. I do one a day just not. That makes me sad for the body lying to it. What do you mall the body. And you're like oh you're not tired and you're like faking it tired. You know what i mean. Yeah the things that we do. I mean it's whatever. But i just think about that. Somebody comes back. You'll be like that energy is not your own. Oh yeah they they say it's not good for your chee or like it's not very good for your chee. I thought it was fascinating. I was listening to your interview with aubrey. Marcus you were talking abou i wanted to meditation and manifestation And just worshiping the in between and how like the the between meaning like you're watering the weeds instead of the flower. And i've been thinking about that a lot because i feel like that used to be me where i was like. I'm just not there yet. Like i was also wanting to be a broadway star really. Yeah so like it was always like. I'm not there yet. I was always focused on the gap. What do i have to do in order to get from here to there. Rather than truly embodying and like feeling into. I am here already. It's just a matter of opportunity in preparation all these things. So i'd love to talk about that related to meditation on because our audience is definitely very much a crew of of manifestos. Great so this is my new jam. Actually think my.

"He's like. I'm not really here. And i and those the first time he's really like an animated and opened up who's really released sweet but i hope the conversation around dreams it's happening. I'm glad we have them here. On the pod and people like charlie morley and dr tara and ray. It's just i think it's a key A key that was reading something about dreaming recently and it was saying that we do not sleep because the the body needs rest we sleep because the soul needs rest. And i thought was really beautiful. Was like oh. That's very interesting to think about you. Know the concept of our soul needing rest it was like almost in this reality can be really exhausting for the soul. That's why leaves all the time. That's why it's sort of here. And then not and so being. The experience of the dream is like more freeing liberating for the soul. Yeah but well. Yeah i could imagine being in. You've got to be careful with that. Not being in reality. I know i've it totally now. Yeah i think. I don't know him at all but i can just tell that it's hard for sure you're like fucking fly. Yeah it's it's hard to tell the or we'll do that do that kind of stuff but yeah. Dreaming is truly the best. We did an episode so on lucid dreaming. Charlie morley you guys can listen to also chamonix. We did ceremony Healing that we have that was years ago. Then we did another episode on dreams. You can search streams almost thirty. That's that's a lot older that talks about the collective experience of dreaming. Think we're early with that kind of conversation. I think we're kind of early. You guys are freaking weird. Yeah and then a year from now you're gonna be like yearly google search today on the podcast is such a good one and i loved it because it's very science focused and it's about education and it's just a beautiful way if you guys are meditators that have meditated for a long time. Then this is gonna be beautiful reminder about all the benefits that you're getting about what's really happening to your brain chemistry and your life and then if you've never meditated before this is a beautiful introduction. It'll really help to lay the foundation for the reasoning. Why meditation is gonna profoundly transform your life or be a really beautiful part of your experience. Yeah and. Emily is the founder of ziva meditations. You can check out. Meditation dot com. But she used to be an actress. Performer was on. Broadway is related to so much of her transition to kind of more of this spiritual space and experience You guys will enjoy her story of pivoting. But yeah i feel like i talked to a few people every week about meditation. Just how they're like. Oh i'm getting more into it or tart me to stick with it. And oftentimes we bring our expectations into meditation. We bring just the expectation of feeling better of what we think it should feel like and so i think this conversation actually really helped me to settle into my own experience to connect the science So i think you guys are really going to like this. Please pass it on to anyone. Who's like i can't meditate but i wanna else. Yeah the. there's so much about the brain that's happening with meditation. There's so many different studies that are coming out every single day. That talk about the benefits of meditation on all aspects of life on stress on on our brain on just like genetics. And i think she talked a little bit about gene expression. How through epigenetics. You can change your gene expression through the use of meditation. And i've been meditating since two thousand twelve and it's saved my life. I mean it profoundly changed me and changed my brain and change the way that i operate in the world and is a non-negotiable in the way i live my life so i cannot recommend meditation enough. I know sometimes people like glaze over whenever people talk about meditation water asleep when it truly is so powerful and in spirituality. It's been the most spiritual thing that i could.

"Hello jeremy fernandez. The coronavirus pandemic continues to change the very fabric of modern live. But for the first time this week starting to have been able to point to encouraging fears that show severe restrictions are starting to have an effect. The number of daily new cases across the country has fallen below one hundred for several consecutive days. A large part of that is down to fewer overseas travelers. Who had previously made up a large proportion of those numbers now that there are fewer people coming in from overseas. We're getting a figure that reflects proportionately more community transmission of coronavirus among local carriers. The health minister greg hunt says although the signs are good strict measures will continue for some time. The virus does not take a holiday therefore none of us can relax in what we do. This in many ways is the most important weekend. We may face in the whole course of the virus if we can lock in the gains that we've made as a nation through the courage and sacrifice of those on the health and medical and policing frontlines but also in the midst goodwill discipline of australians. Then we can help really protect destroyed. Lives going forward and give ourselves the pass three. This was the last in person interview. I did before. Covid nineteen changed circumstances very quickly. This interview was done on the twelfth of march when everything was normal and everything started to change quickly as the day progressed with kobe. Nineteen and the spread in new york. So i was in new york and to begin my day. My morning started. When i took an uber from manhattan to brooklyn to be welcomed into a home and home office emily. I'm the founder of ziva meditation from the relatively new mom new author. The book called stress less. Accomplish more. Used to be on broadway in broadway for ten years. Loved it. it's what i wanted to a little girl but stress led me to having anxiety insomnia going gray. Getting sick getting injured today. We go inside the mind of performer. I suppose context is important. Because emily fletcher was performing at the most prestigious of stages on broadway. I wonder if she knows. Mock fisher volume nineteen who was discussing with us about making resolutions and the psychology around that as well as the third like. He's playing with that. Framework is memento. Mori's like no you're going to die. I think why that matters is. Because i think right now and again role time-framework. I'm thinking that the first piece of course is to know who you know like what you wanna do. Know what what principles of life matter to was important to. I always find food and people to be the best binder for good conversation. So the question of ost the most in my last thousand also interviews is if you could have denault with anyone in the world who would it be add way. Would you habit So bora bora beautiful place. I've ever been. I love to have oprah. Marie forleo richard branson my husband my son. My mom like my mom to listen in. Mark hyman love him dear friend and ziva graduate. Who else obama. Yeah that'd be good. That'd be good. Wouldn't you just love to listen in on that emily. You were saying how stress leading to have anxiety insomnia going gray getting sick getting injured. Is there a happy ending. Happy ending found. Meditation cured my insomnia on the first day stopped. going gray. Didn't get sick for eight and a half years started enjoying my job again just white as everyone not do this left broadway. Went to india started a three year training process to teach since graduating. I've taught twenty thousand people to meditate brick and mortar studio in new york created. The world's first online meditation training which is now called ziva online The book has sold over fifty thousand copies in less than a year. Just came out in paperback and now the thing one thing i love the most is being a mom. Jasper is the thing that brings you the most joy but the thing i'm most excited about ziva is that we're in the process of creating a kids. Meditation course. I think it's going to be the world's best kids meditation training working with emmy award winning writers from sesame street. We're building our own puppet. It's going to be three different age. Ranges working with dr shefali working with harvard child. Psychologists like it's it's going to be really really good and i think the world needs it and is so ready. The world is so ready emily. What kind of results do you see for the ones who haven't really witnessed meditation or mindfulness for that matter. The thing i'm most proud of anything that brings you. The most joy is getting e mails from my students every day or posts in our facebook groups that are like hey. I haven't had anxiety attack in three weeks. I started writing that book. Hey i lost twenty pounds. Hey i reunited with. My mom was estranged web. Hey my daughter. And i are speaking after ten years. Hey i you know. i got off my meds. Hey i started therapy. You know it's emna. Here's all day. Every day we have a dock a spreadsheet with many different tabs with over a thousand testimonies actually hired someone fulltime to manage our testimonials. That's how many we have and they just keep coming in. They just to organize them into put them into categories and types. Like died is probably the thing i'm most proud of. And it has nothing to do with me and has everything to do with them committing to the practice. But i am very good at communicating. This stuff like there are people who are better teachers than me and there are people who are better on camera than me. But there's no one who's as good at both as me. So i'm very happy to be. Meditations ambassador committing to meditation really does seem like the hottest pod but with all of their testimonials. emily was talking about. It's obviously with the f. It in one of our more recent volumes with got into how important meditation is for him to start his day and even gives us some useful tips on what he does when he isn't really in the mood for it when he wakes up. Everything is routine for me. Whether it's time to wake up my meditation. I start my day without. Meditation is no doubt about that. That's center sleep. But there are some days. Where i don't wanna meditate. I just don't feel like meditating at all. But i still use that time to sit over there. Maybe read a book. I mean meditate. But i want to keep that time. Which has slotted outs a meditation for meditation. So it doesn't get confused. We've talked about the benefits of meditation lords of times throughout the series. We know that it can reduce stress depression and anxiety and make you feel more ferkous but in case you want already convinced that it really doesn't prove your lifestyle is just a few things that meditation can do for you that you might not have considered it can slow down the progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as alzheimer's and dementia according to a study done by the beth israel medical center in boston. There's a link between meditation and drew stress reduction and slowing sudden neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and outsiders over the course of the study participating. Alzheimer's patients showed a slow progression off to eight weeks than patients who did not participate. It can also relieve pain. Meditation as a painkiller works by calming the medicines.

"Coming, up on this week's mini episode of the broken brain podcasts. The reason you're meditating is for the other. Twenty three hours or twenty three and a half hours in your day. You're not meditating for that moment. That's not where the dividends show up in your life. I've worn them drew pruitt host of the broken brain podcast. If there was something, you do every to boost your focus and productivity feel energized, reduce stress sleep better. Maintain a positive outlook and support Paul by health. Wouldn't you do it? In this week's mini episode of the podcast I, speak with Megan Monahan Emily Fletcher and Light Watkins all three of my dear friends about the common myths about meditation, the Science of Meditation and how it impacts the brain and how to bring meditation into your life in a practical and tangible way. Let's listen in starting with my interview with my dear friend Megan Monahan a certified choper meditation teacher and author of don't hate meditate. So the number one thing that I hear all of you come up to me or you spiritually slide into my DM's and you think that you're going to get out of meditating by saying to. To, me, He Meghan I try to meditate I. tried to start my thoughts. I try to silence. My mind just can't do it. So saying, but I can't do it and and I will happily retort with as long as you have a pulse, you're going to have thoughts. Meditation is not about stopping your thoughts and silencing your mind I. Don't know who created that sound bite, but it has just been haunting all of teachers for ever and ever and ever at this point. So be really okay with the fact that you're going to have thoughts meditation I like to say that meditation is it's almost like eavesdropping. So. If you can recall a time when you are in public member when that happened and we would be overhearing a conversation, maybe you're in a restaurant, maybe you're on a training maybe out in the world and you overhear a conversation most of the time you're not going to jump into a strangers conversation and input your thoughts, right? Because that would be strange. That's kind of like what meditation is meditation is when you get to start taking a step back and just eavesdropping. Eavesdropping on the activity eavesdropping on your own boss eavesdropping on sounds that you can hear or physical sensations in your body, and it's just creating space between you and that activity and practicing doing that while you're meditating and then taking that sort of mental strength that awareness outside of meditation and putting that into practice when you're in your waking state meditations, not about stopping your thoughts number. One thing that I hear. So if that's your excuse, sorry, you have to meditate. The other people say to me a lot and it will happen after class or after with client or whatever it is. They'll say, oh, that was a really good one and I always stop them. And and just reframed not a bit because I. Think we have this expectation that. That it should feel really relaxing that it should that we should have some insight that we should maybe have some Aha moment that maybe we have some clarity navy. We feel a deep sense of stillness that we had access to all of a sudden there. These very cool meditation, need very technical term moments that you can have when you meditate and it's cool when those happen. If any of those things, I just described show up if you see colors if you. Feel a connection to yourself. That's really dope and those meditations are really fun. But that meditation is just as good as the meditation. I did this morning where my fire alarm went off in the middle there. Equally good one was just more fun. When was more enjoyable. The only bad meditation is the one that you don't do. So I think the other the other myth that I would kind of dispel as that nothing needs to happen for it to work in the moment, you just have to do it not on link working out. You know if I'm if I go out for a run, there will be days when when I am running. Running in two minutes in, it feels like I have never run before in my life, and it's so laborious and meaningful, and then I have the days where I feel like I could run marathons on all of those runs were equally beneficial. I just liked one of them were. So basically advocating for the removal of judgment on a medication. Yes. Like the expectation because what happens so to just push it a little bit what happens when we do say that was a good one or somebody says, oh. Man I really knew that that was a good one. What's the fear or what's the concern when somebody judges a meditation as good or bad? So number one, I think with any kind of judgment. It stops being a neutral place for you and I think one of the biggest blessings of meditation is that it's this kind of neutral landscape that you get to rest, and so I think if you have an expectation is already a sense of meaning that you're applying to it that isn't going to serve you and and I think you've set yourself up. Up to two, almost have an out which I'm not a fan of I. Think we should all meditate every day for the rest of our lives. So if you have a string of meditations where it doesn't feel great, you're kind of Ansi or where you hear the leaf blower every time or where the dog is bothering you. Then all of a sudden. Oh, it's not going. Well, I'm gonNA stop doing

"What happened. I realized that even the most naturally minded up. My friends were still using certain conventional toothpaste and shampoo because they weren't willing to sacrifice quality. They just weren't willing to have teeth white or hair that wasn't clean their natural options out there certainly and there are conventional actions that work really well but to find products that do both was almost impossible and thus wellness was born. I realized that there had to be a way to create the highest quality products. That also worked as well as any conventional alternative and we tackled the toughest I creating the first and only natural toothpaste that is fluoride and glycerine. Free it's based on my way recipe that I have been using for a decade. It contains calcium and hydroxy appetite to uniquely support the mineral balance in the mouth. It also contains things like Neem oil and green tea to support healthy bacterial balance and oral microbiome and to fight bad breath. You could be the first to try it for you and your family and to try our innovative natural hair care shampoo and conditioner at wellness dot com so again it's wellness with an E. ON THE END. W. E. L. L. E. S. S. E. DOT COM for people. Who are curious I am to? What is the practical way that the program works? Is it like an online course that you follow because it's something people can learn over time and then integrate without needing to follow something or what does it look like? That's exactly what I love about. Ziva book online and basically all trainings are designed to make you self sufficient. It is designed to give you the keys to the car and the driving instructions so that you can do this on your own for lunch. Meaning that let's see is on o'clock at night or ten equipment and you're in the room your kids you don't need to like go get an IPAD. Make sure it's charged in having on dim modes of the lights are coming in. There is the perfect speakers or headphones. Or there's Electrons are fired once you graduate. Which is a little bit of a secret thing? Always Meditation APPs out there. The free free meditation APPs. They're designed to keep tethered to your phone if they're free to you. That is getting their money off of advertising dollars. Which means that. They are monetize. How long your eyeballs are on your Nova new? But I don't want my eyeballs on my phone limits he she baptist and so the idea hit once you move through the online course. He had the tools to be for life so I don't know that I said this yet. But the technique is a factor of mindfulness. Meditation in manifesting. So the three ends. That's what we teach so with all my course it's about fifteen minutes a day for fifteen days so the ideal use makeup for kids get up wash it first thing in the morning before coffee and builds upon itself so the first three days are mindfulness mandates. Four through twelve. Learn the meditation unnaturally. The magic happens. That's where the rest comes. That's where you're actually giving something called mantra which is not a flow game. It's not a saying but it's a very powerful mind vehicle Word Miami's nine vehicle. That's kind of the key to Ziva car. So you get the hat and you use that Through twelve to become an expert in that we move onto the manifesting in that sounds a little little different. But it's not. It's you getting clear on what it is that you want in your life and I find that there's so many of us we've been in survival mode for so long it's easy for in our dreams especially as moms easy to start taking care of everyone else and and forget what you want and enjoy. I Love was manifesting piece for do it just for two minutes at the end of your meditation and it's time to start to ask a question such as what would. I love what I love right now. Not What should I do not let the kids need not making the most money not good on instagram? What would I love right in in? What I found is the combination of meditation. Manifesting is so much more powerful faster than either one alone consumer charges. I just got home. It's on and he said he was a yoga. Teacher named learn Ziva. He said this is linked. Jet Fuel Spiritual. Eating a lot of US may think that we're manifesting might even thinks that we're praying over. Accidents doing is complaining and we don't even realize it or asking questions like why can't I lose this weight? What's wrong with my husband's like why? Why does she get a job? And I didn't end if you start to ask questions. You're going to get terrible answers. The after body can't lose this way. Your Body will answer that question you ask. Why does she have a boyfriend? I don't again your your body will answer that question so instead I teach people how to remember their dreams how to ask us this very secret time right and left hemispheres of the brain function in unison to plant the seeds for everything that you want to create task questions. Like how much money would I love to hear? What was my dream? Relations body feel like what has made dream schedule. Look like with my family with my dream. Relationships look like and then you start to move towards the positive setup away. I love that. I think that's another thing that I've heard. You say that I love so much is about the question we ask ourselves Because I think so many times we do that more in our head than we do. We wouldn't ask slow things of a friend or we wouldn't talk like that to other people but we have that script running in our head and then you're right. Our brain answers the question So even that simple reframe is so amazing it at the beginning you talked a little bit about at tation energy. I WANNA go a little bit deeper on that. If you don't mind and talk about how meditation helps replenish that. And what are the benefits of that? So I defined adaptation energy as your ability to handle a demand durability to handle a change expectations so as MOMS leader dealing with your changes. Expectation demands all day every day. You thought you were going to sleep until seven high. Your kids woke up at six. You thought you had eggs in uh-huh you realize you didn't have any was. GonNa be no traffic drive. Your school turns out with the parking lot. Another league for school. You thought you were going to get a lung by to Ha- conference Louis nearly to give your kid. It's just a constant stream of demands concentration of changes expectation and these. These demands are burning up something that we call adaptation energy and if you run out of adaptation energy and then you have another demand then your body is going to launch into fight or flight whether you read eat. Pray love or not whether you read. The seven habits of highly effective people are not because we don't act in accordance what we know we act in accordance with the baseline level of stress in our nervous systems. We all know how we should be acting. None of us are doing it. Because we're stressed. We shouldn't drink a bottle of wine at night when we shouldn't be binge on Netflix until two in the morning. Maybe we shouldn't be going instagram for an hour. We do it anyway. Because we're in so if you start meditating everyday twice a day not only. Are you getting rid of that stress? You're filling up your reservoirs with this adaptation energy into does it take way to demands no when it does that it increases your ability to elegantly handle with maps so instead of freaking out and having a full-blown fighter flight stress reaction. On your kids by six o'clock at night because you're exhausted is a huge meditative. You have more patients who have creativity have some more gas at a team to handle the flow of got it. Yeah that makes me think of Several years ago cautious probably like five. Now I hit a point where I thought I was GONNA have a nervous breakdown because I was so stressed and probably I had no adaptation energy left but I had business and family and just all the things on my plate and I had this moment where I realized in business everything just automated it flows. I have systems. It's so easy I get that part but at home I feel like I'm just treading water or juggling plates all the time and I finally had this moment of clarity to realize it because business I have systems and objectives in. Kpi's and goals. And I run things according to a plan whereas at home I'm just trying to juggle everything in my head all the time so for me. Part of it was figuring out how to put practice systems in place at home that reduce stress. I didn't have those open loops all the time and I didn't like I was constantly having to adapt but I think you have the other piece of the puzzle. Which is that you have to give your brain the ability to have more at patient energy with the two of those. I feel like that's extremely for MOMS because we do have more typically more on our plates than most people in society and we're juggling alive for managing the official sponsor emotional responsibility for our kids and food and house in job a lot of time. So I love that you talk about that. That's so important. Yes thank you for illustrating such a beautiful idea of how to get out of that survival mode. It's a gift to be creative system to close as open loops. That's that's another way to give yourself more adaptation energy. All open cycles are burning adaptation energy as well. So it's two fold you WANNA increase your capacity but whenever possible. We also removed the demand or delegate demand or systematized so it is harbor. Answer that makes sense We get near the end of our time. I always love to ask a couple of questions and the first being other than your own which of course will be linked in the show notes if there is a number of books that have dramatically impacted your life and if so what they are and why so thinking about this a lot and I'm going to go old school and go to the book of it in high school and it was Ayn rand. The fountainhead. And I read it. I was a literature class. And it's basically I mean it can be some people call the capitalism manifesto and it can be taken out of context or taken too far. I'm very much celebrating. The individual in the ego ideas ego is thing. That's propelling society forward. But I read it at a time where I was in a small town and I was you know making straight A.'s on the lead in the play and I was. I was sixty of succeeding in a lot of different areas of my life and I think I was giving a little bit of Tall Poppy Syndrome and I started feeling like I would rather people like me than be my best because I started to ask Excelling in these different areas. At least my perception was that I was making other people uncomfortable. Or they didn't like me now. I could just been me in that time. People like me. I don't I don't know but I'm started diminishing myself playing small and trying to make other people who better by not being in my full power. I read this book. I think it was junior and it really changed my life. It allowed me to into migrants allowed me to see will need diminishing myself is not helping. Lift anyone else up. And that and I quote Mary Williamson. Which is you know it's our. It's our light. That most frightens is not our darkness in place mall as you step into your inspire other people to do the same. That in the phone hadn't really really young age. I love that. That's a new recommendation and I'm actually going to read it because I had those thoughts as well like there's times when I was worried that if I was like fully myself I would it be intimidating or like too much or like people wouldn't like me because of that and so that actually really resonates with me. I'll make sure those are linked.

"Healing on a cellular level. It's changing your nervous. System was giving a harbor upgraded like upgrading your computer and and ultimately elegant software. If you have a more advanced computer into the end of the day we're going to have to do both above the hard drive and the software so thank you for that. So beautiful down nearly science rabbit hole so when the body watches into fight or flight than we go into sympathetic in which is the body is basically preparing for predatory attack. This comes out of millions of years of pollution protecting us from Tigers Lions bears. So let's say you're in the woods tiger jumps on you with the intent to kill. Your body will launch into a series of chemical reactions. The first thing that happens is your digestion will flooded acid shutdown gestion waste any of that adjusted energy. All the energy seiner pleaded Tiber. That's an affable. See onto your skin so that you don't taste. They should get into by the tiger. Your House evacuates you can rely on your feet blood fixing coagulates so that if you get bitten into you don't lead to death. Your vision will narrow your immune system goes to the back burner because who cares if you're going to get cancer if you're about to be killed by a tiger again. Many all Hanson deck so this series of category actions is very useful if your demands or predatory attacks but if your daily demands our kids and inlaws and deadlines in school projects in emails in traffic than fighter. Flight thing his become maladaptive is this allowing us from performing at the top burke game. This backlot of accumulated is making us stupid. Sick in slow as a species and so when we start meditating what happens. Is We go in thirty to forty five seconds Nervous which means that at a bulk rate decreases. Which doesn't you're GONNA gain weight. This is the rate with which consumes oxygen breathing slows. Your heart rate slows. Your body temperature cools and then within less than a minute introducing dopamine serotonin which are alkaline in nature and they always agree at nature's antidote to cortisol internal which are stress hormones. Those are acidic by nature and ever studied Arabic medicine. Acid Eagles inflammation and inflammation is the basis all chronic disease. And so if. You're crying flamed for chronically stress in the body is just a little bit to set a little bit too hot when we start meditating not only clear apnea adrenaline cortisol. We start putting the Alkaline in nature this is why according to tests and waiver. Forget the name of the other university. But there's two universities who've done studies on how meditation can reverse your body age says eight years he's wake forest actually said some are up to fifteen but you can reverse your body age from her between eight to fifteen years with meditation and there was another study. That came out so that you can reverse your brain age. The average meditators at fifty has the brain of a twenty five year old and this is based on neurogenesis neural activity and also the strengthening of something called the Corpus Callosum. Which is the way strip that connects right in cinemas fears of the brain? So I mean this all sounds too good to be true and people like what do you mean medidation can do this business but really the question we should be asking is how stress messing so many things up because according to medical school stress is responsible for ninety percent offers visits in scientists are calling the Black League of our century. And the cool thing here. Is that stress is not an incurable? Ellis we have a cure to it. It's called meditation. We owned were too busy to medicine. The I think you're so right about that. And let me explain it. So well all that neuroscience about meditation and how many benefits that has and like. I said it's had its time in the sun. There's enough really successful people saying it's a huge part of the reason. They're so successful that I think people are paying attention but why eating that so many of us still like I even stone guilty of sailing. I can't I'm not good at meditative. Quiet my mind like why are people still saying that when obviously it's important I think people are saying I don't have time. I can't can remind because of the misconception. Between Mindfulness and meditation so a moment ago the mindfulness most of the free quote unquote. Meditation Obser- actually teaching what I would call anytime guiding you through looking guy that youtube video or a drop in studio and someone is telling you to imagine waterfall or counting your breasts. Focus on your shoppers anytime. You're directing your focus. I'm putting that in the category of mindfulness and mindfulness. Like I said is very good dealing with your stress. Now because it's not ultimately getting rid of root cause because it's not healing the backlog of stress your past then it's creating st change versus meditations creating a traits change actually altering your cells alternative jeans and going after the root cause So what I've found. Is that with Meditation Specific? Zeba the return on time investment is exponential is basically done. A math is fifteen minutes twice a day two percent of your day so the question is when you're willing to invest two percent of your day to make the other ninety eight percent more effective more productive more more presence Versus with mindfulness. Y You might feel better in the now for a lot of people they reported. It's not giving that scene or why they don't feel more productive leader. It's more of a a triage. Look I can't do this. Africa now or already have insomnia. Says LISTEN TO THIS GUIDED? Meditation Fall Asleep were ultimately not called treating what caused the inside insomnia to begin with and so I think that this is the time piece. It's like whatever your whatever time investment you're making you need to be getting more time back in your day. I had the good fortune of teaching Dr Mark Hyman to meditate. Who's the founder of the Medicine Center at the Cleveland Clinic and one I think. One of the world's leading doctors in certainly Medicine and he says for the to meditate Back about three hours in his day. He's like I have three more hours of productivity three hours a fine three more energy to go dancing or to be with my wife or my friends not to me is special sauce because again none of us attorney waist now the clearing of the Mind Peace. I think people are confusing the results for the techniques. Because if you sit down meditate chances are afterwards you are. GonNa feel more clear. You argue anymore presents. You argue to be more intuitive. You won't be so mired with Stephanie. Anxiety however just because clarity of mind is a result of meditation that does not mean that it is the practice of meditation to if you sit down and close your eyes and try to your the mind. You're always gonNA feel like you're failing because the mind thinks involuntarily just like the heartbeats in voluntarily trying to get your brain commander shot up is at impactful is trying to give your heart. A commend stop eating. It does not work in yet. This is when everybody's trying do and this is why everybody thinks it's hard because we're judging ourselves based on an impossible criteria and this is because a lot of the mindfulness practices that people are adopting or durations of things that were originally made for mocks even anything head face. Andy was among the biggest popular personal brand on facebook. Jay Shedding was a monk. I so mindfulness almost fetish is a little bit in the left. And we think what whatever most are doing must be more. Powerfully must be vibrating or levitating. But it's the other way around if you have a job kids and stuff to do and you have less time in your day with which to meditate see actually need a practice. That is more powerful. You Need Prophecy Hugo in do come out more energy on the other side into the the meditation portion of the technique is based on something that six thousand years old it was needed for people like us. It was made for people with busy. Busy lives so inches. You go in and get out. It's not about meditating all day which is what monster doing. That is their tradition to society. They can afford to do something. That's a little bit jumper. That makes perfect sense. And I know Dr Hyman as well and that's really drastic I had not heard him say that. That's amazing that he feels like he gets that big of a return for meditating and reminds me a little bit of that quote I believe he was Saint Francis or somebody who said it like pray half an hour a day unless you're too busy and then pray for an hour a day like the people who are the most busy are the ones that most need this On the NERDY. Note for a second again. I'm curious are there any studies or any data that you've seen between a regular meditation practice like this and changes in heart rate variability because I've been tracking that just as a pet project lately and I'm curious if there's anything that shows on that yes and so people will put the hurry? Variability Training Bill even call bat meditation which. I think is really valuable in a great thing to do but it's it's much more active and whereas Zeba is kind of the Lazy Man's meditation. It's more taking a nap sitting up but ultimately what we're doing. Zeba isn't getting rid of the stress in the body. And so when when? You're not meditating. You're not as stressed. You're just at normal homeo- stasis and the whole Gig with heart rate variability. The reason why we bought ourselves to be more variable is that if a tiger com ready Josh. Definer play. If it's time to go to sleep you can down regulate you can go to sleep really quickly. It's like we want to be variable. Want to be adaptive to whatever the circumstances of life or calling upon. And that's the whole point of meditation. You're increasing your ability to adapt versus someone who's chronically stressed who has chronic amounts of cortisol and adrenaline Very very high all the time..

"And one of the best books out there. If you're looking for ways to detox emotionally and mentally she has taught more than twenty thousand students around the world including leaders at Apple. Google and Harvard Business School and she also helped this very type. A. Mom to learn how to meditate as well and I love how approaches that we meditate not to get better at meditation but to get better life and we talk about that and so much more today and I know that you will enjoy this episode as much as I did so without further ado. Let's join Emily. Emily Welcome. Thanks for being here. What a joy to get to be here. Thank you for having me. I'm so excited to chat with you. I I met you or new view at an event a couple of years ago when you spoke and one of the things that you said that really resonated with me was that we meditate to get good at life not too good at meditation. And that's what I started paying attention to you. Actually because I had never been great at meditating and the idea of like clearing my mind was not something that was ever GonNa Happen to me and so I think like you said that I started listening to what you were saying and realized you had this whole different approach so I wanted to start there Why is that? It's such important distinction when we start talking about meditation because so many people are exactly like you. They've tried meditation. They felt like a failure because they could clear their mind. They assume that is just not for them. And then potentially robbed themselves of a lifetime of work productivity more energy more happiness because judging themselves based on information so many people are trying to clear their mind because some yoga teacher somewhere said just let you go into a world full of X. meditators when their case because the point is not to clear the mines point me is to be happier to have more energy better sleep better immune system to the kids. That's why do this. No one cares. If you're good at yes. I think such an important point. Most of us are not trying to reach like monk level of meditation and our daily lives. It's we want it to be practical and that makes so much sense. When you explain it I feel like meditation is such a time in the sign that most people probably are really familiar with it. But I also feel like. There's a lot of misconceptions so to get really basic for a second walk us through. What actually is the definition of meditation? What does that mean so? The simplest definition would be a stress relieving tool but definition. I think is too vague. Because if that's only criteria than so as a bottle of wine so as binging on. Netflix you know smoking pot. funny Oh cool exercise is mine with or cooking with y'all cooking is called cooking exercises called exercise meditation. Meditation that's why they have their own words so I think a stress relieving tool is not quite specific enough teachers Yvo. Which is the name of my company. Teach a type of meditation. It's giving your biting breast five times earthen sleep again because I think especially for all sorts of really exciting style of meditation is giving your body. Rest is five times deeper than sleeps. Kind of like a supercharged tower. Now you can do in fifteen minutes with Asleep rover but on the other side. You're even more awake than the other. Really importantly here is that in this style. Of Haitian you're not only handling your stress from today. You're also going in inhuman on your stress from the past and this is really important because most of what people are calling meditation meaning most of the Free Apps out there. Most of the guided things on you to most of the drop in studios are actually teaching what I would call. Mindfulness and mindfulness meditation are often being used as synonyms. But they are not the same thing into the big. Distinguishing factor between the two is. The mindfulness is all focusing. And it's very good at dealing with your stress in the now so think of a crazy your kid you could work from Hong Control Your really stressed you do ten minutes of head space or Palmer. Something ended handles your stress in now like a state change like taking an aspirin if you have a heady now. What I'm teaching. Ziva is not only having your stress from the now but it's also getting rid of your stress from the past. It's going in healing things cellular Lii and now even though it's healing things on ethnic genetic level which is what we've been heritage. Parents will pass on to our children in this day. Because it's ultimately the ratification of backlog of stresses we haven't ourselves it. We do that. This is what gives us return on the time investments so for fifteen minutes invested in your meditation. Because you're getting rid of the stress. It's even story in your body that stuff. That's making us all stupid. Second Slow and you start to have more time in your day because your brain gets faster. Your immune system is stronger. Your creativity is more tuned in. Your intuition is stronger so this is why I find especially with Zeba that the airline is higher. And this is. I think maybe takes the other misconception around that is that it's not the first people think they can't do their mind which we can talk about other people think they're too busy and we're all too busy to waste our time none of time to lease and if you're just doing ten minutes in getting yourself out of triage but ultimately not healing the root cause than I'd say that's not a really great investment of your time but if you're going into not only feeling better in the now actually handling very route of the anxiety caused the insomnia the cause of the overwhelm then this because a very productive and valuable investors fear that makes sense and honestly if I think back even a couple of years ago. I think I would have still been a lot more. Skeptical of just how dramatically something like that can impact your biology until I had an experience myself actually because I had I had trauma in high school and I thought I had dealt with it and I had done all the talk therapy and I thought it was totally fine and then I had Type of bodywork combined with just being in the situation that got me out of my comfort zone and has entirely different type of emotional release happened to the point that I should like literally body shook for an hour. It was like when you see an animal almost get killed and then they're fine and all that adrenaline has to come out. It was like a decade of adrenaline. Just like shaking out of my body and that alone. My Body's changed so much in the past few months with my diet lifestyle. Everything's staying exactly the same so I'm definitely now much horrible believer of just how drastically our mental state and our emotions can really really impact our physiology dramatically impact us I'm a nerd. I'd love to go a little deeper. And can you explain biochemical and physiologically? What's happening in the body? When we meditate like what are some of the pathways that reactivating are we going into pair sympathetic? Or what are some of the ways it's affecting us yes. Thank you grass. And also thinking Britain illustrating so beautifully difference between what I would call a software upgrade in a hardware upgrade so all in all of us a lot of us have done the talk therapy for years in an call software upgrades you changing your operating system. It's changing the Lens. Through which you see the role of this meditation work in that somatic worker energy working body where.

What Worry and Meditation Have in Common

What Worry and Meditation Have in Common

"What worry and meditation have in common? We live in a world where people are chronically. Stressed people are activating their sympathetic nervous system that fight or flight response on a regular basis. In fact I believe for many of my clients. They're just living in a chronic state of fighter fighter flight particularly for my clients who grew up in an abusive or dysfunctional homes. I believe that they are living in this place of needing to assess for danger and have a have a very difficult time. Activating their Paris sympathetic nervous system. So the sympathetic nervous system assists us in fighting or fleeing. If we have an animal chasing us we need that sympathetic nervous system to release cortisol and adrenaline to help our body to prepare to fight or to flee we. We need our respiration to increase. We need increased blood flow to our arms and our legs. We need to be able to fight or to run in the Para sympathetic state state. It's referred to as rust and digest because our immune system and our digestive system are activated during the Para sympathetic state. They about it this way. If you are running from an animal is your body really all that concerned about digesting food or fighting Often pathogen when you could die because of this animal chasing you so we were in the Para sympathetic state were in that rest and digest state when were in the sympathetic state were increasing inflammation in our body because we are releasing all of these stress hormones in an attempt to protect ourself. The sympathetic system is extremely important. We needed what we don't need is to be activating it regularly and that is what I believe a probably most all of my clients are doing and what we need to be doing is getting to that Paris sympathetic state because because in that Paris sympathetic state that rest and digest state. Our bodies are able to heal we're able to rewire our brains scenes. Were able to digest. Foods were able to fight off pathogens. That is a state of health when we're in that para sympathetic state and one of the ways that we can activate the para sympathetic nervous system or that Rushton digest system is through meditation and last last month I was encouraging you to think about twenty twenty and what you wanted to do differently this year and one thing I would encourage wjr everybody to include in their life. is meditation meditation. The research is it's it's it's it's amazing what. The research search shows of what meditation does for our bodies it truly is a healing practice. It increases our our immune in system's ability to fight infection. It decreases inflammation in the body and inflammation is at the root of all diseases it assists with sleep. It assists our brains in being able to critically think. In fact I was listening to a podcast with Dr James Gordon. And he indicated that because meditation increases the activity in the frontal CORTEX. We have an increase in judgement self awareness and compassion. I think all of us could use an increase in those three areas in our life life and when I encourage people to meditate frequently what I hear people say is I can't I just can't meditate my. I'm I'm just not able to do it. It is impossible not to be able to meditate. And I mean that in fact if you're someone who worries stories you're meditating. Now it's not healthy meditation nonetheless. It is a form of meditation. So if you're a worrier no more excuses no more excuses. You're able to meditate and and think about that for a minute if you are concerned about a problem if you have something going on in your life and you're just going over it over it at. Let's say you're concerned about losing your job or your concerned -cerned about a relationship or finances if you're just sitting in that and going over it and over and over at. You're meditating right so meditation meditation and there's all sorts of different interpretations of what meditation is. I like to think of it as a way to simply calm the brain that were really working on directing our focus so that we can call the brain. Now I hear some people talk about meditation. As you know blanking linking out the mind I can only speak for myself but I know I'm not capable of blanking out my mind. I am an. I'll use an always here. I'm always just thinking about something so with meditation I think about it as the quieting of the mind. Me Focusing on something that's helping took quiet so for example it could be listening to music. There's by Naral. Sounds which means it's the sounds in one ear is different than the sound another. It reminds me a lot of em Dr. And if you've worked with me directly you know I'm a huge proponent of amd are because it's bilateral movement so with the by Naral sounds. The belief is that it is actually helping to change the brainwaves and helping to calm palm the brain so for me that gives me something to focus on. It gives me something to listen to so that when my mind does wander. I'm able to bring bring back to focus. The sounds that gives me something directly to bring my my focus back to and then work on breathing of course while comparing it with the sounds. If you're a worrier you are sitting. And you're thinking about the problem and you're going over it and over it and over it and think about I mean we really if you've worried about something recently. I bet if you sat for a few minutes you were all in right. You were consumed completely with. What was you were worried about? You weren't distracted by anything. You were all into the worry. We'll that's what we want to do with meditation when you're worrying worrying you're activating that sympathetic nervous system. You're activating that potentially and I think for most individuals they are your activating that sympathetic nervous system. That that fight or flight response you. There's fear associated with it. If you're worrying about something you're fearful of it you're definitely not in that para sympathetic state. So you really think about that for a minute. If you have the ability to sit and be lost in your fear you have the ability to work at being lost in a sound wound or in your breath or even a word if you wanted to focus on one word even saying it over and over is a way to do meditation. Where again with meditation were working on quieting the mind? So if you're thinking about a word and you're it let's say it was joy and maybe you're even saying joy and you're thinking about how it feels in your mouth and you're thinking about how the sound sound wound and how you feel it in your body while you're breathing. That's a form of meditation. Dr Mark Hyman who. I'm a huge fan of. He is a functional medicine doctor and he believes in the body's ability to heal and he also also believes that food is medicine. Which of course I think you know that I believe in that? And he says that meditation is medicine and that it's it's so important for us to take time to work on quieting the mind because it has such a profound effect act on her physical and emotional health. It was interesting. He's he commented that medicine shuts off a pathway or or it blocks something in. It's actually interfering with your biology to stop a symptom. where meditation and food also Soviet? He was referring to meditation. And this moment is actually suggesting to to heal the body. It's working with the body and helping the body to activate its own systems so that it can heal itself and he talked about how one's immune system you know increases how the inflammation decreases. How sleep improves? Because the and and how there's also rewiring of the brain are that that neuropathy of the brain allows the brain to be rewired and over time just as though you can be wired to be a worrier over over time. If you're doing meditation you can rewire your brain to be to be healthier. In fact Dr Hyman was talking into Emily Fletcher. She's an expert in the field of meditation and she explained that meditation neutralizes is the adrenaline and Cortisol. While it floods the brain with dopamine and Serotonin so those feel-good right neurotransmitters metres. Meditation helps to release those so again. We're not with Meta medicine. You're altering those were with meditation. You're actually assisting your body in doing the its own processes that it knows how to do. We've just kind of hijacked it with worry.

"Your your union wing with something bigger than you and something similar is happening when you're union was someone else you're creating the third thing you're not so individual so you're saying together sure they do this practice before sex you could absolutely could kind of have been something in the book so there's a chapter called from Omg and there's an exercise that at the end of the book where I it's a little bit cheesy and you feel a little uncomfortable to begin with but you're looking at each other's eyes and almost manifesting each other's dreams for each other and I find it very intimate very raw very vulnerable but if you can create that kind of intimacy on the intellectual spiritual plane it's much easier to get there. Physically I love this. I mean this is something that couples Z. Because I I feel like if you could just get yourself in the mindset of sex he'd be so much better off but when you're just going from your day and the kids and laundry and the dog and then you're like boom sex that's why we're all having a challenging time around sack because our stress hangs out in the past and the future our bliss orgasms hang out in the moment ah the five cents is really just a trick to get yourself into your body into the right brain and therefore into the right now okay. I'm talking to Emily Fletcher from Ziva Meditation if you guys any any questions at all and her book is stress less accomplish more meditation for extraordinary performance I Love I love packaged meditation or because I think it seems like it's a way that a lot of people get their head around and I've been kind of waiting for this book because I always tell you where he got. We could download the APPS but I don't think that's effective I for me. It wasn't and I think for many people so I just seems like it's it's actually doable. It's like if you ever bought like an exercise book or a cookbook or anything to change your performance at work. You know this could actually do it. I believe so so let's talk about the the manifest part because that's something that I think is so it it. It's so I know that it works but it can be so challenging to figure out what we want and then picture we might know. I want to make a lot of money. Your I want to get this job but what what does it look like. Felix smell like taste like that part is even for me knowing what to do. It can be challenging because I know that's how things happen so I've been so surprised at how much resistance I've seen around the manifesting and I started asking questions why why it's so hard to imagine your dream what I realize that people have been so stressed for so so long they're so used to being in fighter flight. They're so used to being in survival mode but they haven't had any energy leftover for their dreams. What meditation does it gets us out of fight or flight into what I call? Stay and play so all that energy even wasting on anxiety and worry and depression and exhaustion used to have more energy left over to create and then you can start to ask yourself what would my dream relationship look like what does my dream sex life look lake energies either creating or destroying and so if you get rid of that destructive trucked in what's that quote worry is a waste of perfectly good imagination so when you stop worrying so much you have imaginative power left over over and you can start to fuel your dreams with really the only trick manifesting. Is You have to.

"I believe that doctors are calling it the the black plague of our century and it's making us feel more isolated. It's ruining our confidence and it can actually chemically affect us. I mean if women have too much cortisol. They become incapable capable of orgasm. If men have too much adrenaline it affects their erection and so it's like this isn't just like Oh. If you meditate you'll see each other shock rose. It's like no if you're too stressed. You can't orgasm right exactly say that you can't orgasm and you make less money. Your work will suffer because it is true like I always say that. Stress and anxiety is the biggest killer of our sex drive and that's it's the truth but also I feel like there is an epidemic of of anxiety or people sharing of anxiety but it seemed like the whole goddamn world is anxious including myself in. I meditate okay. You know what I think. It's definitely has helped imagine me without it but I do think that it this really is. I mean meditation.
