36: Feng Shui’s Ancient Wisdom & Modern Tech | guest P.K. Odle | S1point5

February 28, 2021

Direct experience is a powerful teacher, and P.K. Odle's life took a “Wow!” of a turn that suddenly lifted her from a numbing desk job in the travel industry, to one of its most prestigious positions in the LA entertainment world. 

But that was only the beginning, as a year later P.K. was headed to success into a field she never even knew existed until a friend told her to read a book about Feng Shui. She had, and using its remedies immediately shifted her travel job after a weekend of making the changes in her home that it had suggested.

When P.K. met American Feng Shui Institute® founder Master Larry Sang, she happily walked away from her corporate career to study there, and seized the opportunity to make positive changes in the world by improving clients’ health, relationships and finances. She is now the Institute’s Executive Director, and a Master Feng Shui Consultant with both a U.S. and  international clientele.

In today’s wide-ranging conversation, she shares the 5,000 years-old roots of Feng Shui, and some of its storied history, while explaining just what practical and immediate power Feng Shui brings to anyone’s home or work life.

P.K. even connects its ancient techniques with modern technology, so listeners can understand how it can be both old and new. Enjoy!

P.K. shares a “Wow”

35: The Unbreakable Peace that Dissolves Suffering | guest Joel Drazner | S1point5

35: The Unbreakable Peace that Dissolves Suffering | guest Joel Drazner | S1point5

February 28, 2021

Join us for a thought experiment that points our conversation directly toward the profound jewels of awareness, in territory that special guest Joel Drazner has made his life’s passion and professional purpose.

Most people spend enormous amounts of energy and effort bouncing stressfully among perception, sensation and thoughts. Why? We are seeking to reduce pain and suffering for ourselves and those we love.

This episode is a welcome interruption to the frustration that such bouncing builds, despite our moments of success, when using up so much strength and willpower drains us of joy and peace. Temporary and partial relief are not enough, as the next challenge rushes in to overtake us once more. Joel has learned, and teaches, how to step away from that draining circle of entrapment. 

In Joel’s work as a Resilience Coach, he offers everyone a deceptively  simple technique he has taught to countless people, and uses routinely himself. It does not require “experience” to use, and yields an immediate and profound impact on anyone who opens themselves to a new world of non-duality, firmed rooted in unconditional love.

With self-deference and respect for anyone who chooses to listen, Joel offers true gems in this conversation. Enjoy!

• • •

In this episode:

Joel shares a “Wow” 

“Underlying and saturating all your experiences in life, no matter how challenging they may be on the surface, is an unbreakable peace made of unconditional love.”

Joel shares a “Whisper” 

“I am the KNOWER of all my experience, not merely the content that is known.” 

Quote:“I love to share a simple universal truth about life, that's hiding in plain sight, that, once seen, can help dissolve suffering permanently.” — Joel Drazner 

• • •

34: Soul, Heart & Being Unapologetically Human | guest Zak Lioutas | S1point5

34: Soul, Heart & Being Unapologetically Human | guest Zak Lioutas | S1point5

February 28, 2021

What is being human? Zak Lioutas has taught herself with vibrant inner spiritual guidance, to see the light in adversity, and to be grounded in heart  and soul, so she can fly. 

She learned that words can stop you from living fully, just as when her mother told her from childhood to be free like a bird, yet held her to tightly so that she felt completely caged. Zak experienced depression from the inside out, not just once, but far too many times in cycles, requiring her to learn so much more than she could know was needed to fully transform that repetitive cycle. 

She talks abut the two-by-four wake-up calls in her life when lessons came hard. Yet the whispers inside never deserted her, and she shares that wisdom with us in this conversation. 

Today, people seek her out to teach them; she generously shows them not her way, but the openings available to their find their way.

When the energy of Earth called her, saying “Please come in for a landing…” she fought it, and then finally accepted that call. It brought her the gift of learning how to become one with everything, no matter whether suffering or light, and Zak gained an even more wondrous gift: authenticity. 

You are invited to hear from a powerful soul, Zak, who’s earned her Wows!

• • •

In this episode:

Zak shares a “Wow” 

“You are stronger than you will ever recognize.”

Zak shares a “Whisper” 

“Recognizing the depth of my spirits willpower to rise from the ashes and tap deeper into my gifts.” 

• • •

We’d love to hear from you. Your ideas and comments are most welcome about what this episode awakens within you as we share this journey.

More about my special guest:

Zak Lioutas is a Soul Activator as well as as  Spiritual Teacher, Mentor, Healer. 

She is the Founder and C.E.O. of Be Bold, Fierce, Unstoppable. Stay tuned for news of her book, available very soon in 2021.

Quote:

“I guide men and women that are at a crossroads of their life to find and create their bliss by living in their power and being authentically who they are.” — Zak Lioutas 

Zak explains about the focus of her own podcast:

“You’ll hear stories of people’s struggle to what they have done to become visionaries of the collective that is assisting humanity to join in this incredible movement [about activating and awakening your spirit]. The podcasts are real, raw conversations about life, and what people do in order to handle adversity and continue to thrive at a higher vibration. It’s not how many times you fall, it’s how fast you jump up and get at it again with a different mindset.”

32: Hypnosis & Making Shift Happen | guest Britt Sheflin | S1point5

32: Hypnosis & Making Shift Happen | guest Britt Sheflin | S1point5

February 26, 2021

Self hypnosis is a natural state, as the masterful Britt Sheflin, Master Hypnotist and Certified Hypnotherapist, reminds us in this free-flowing conversation. We spend the early part of our childhood (until about age 8) enjoying learning and the mindset of discovery every day. 

She explains how, as we grow, new confining filters fit themselves over us and block so much from our awareness, all in the interest of automatic behaviors that seem to make life efficient. Efficient, but dull. And too often full of unsolvable fears or even phobias that settle in upon us. 

Britt opens a fresh window for everyone to more clearly see these confining patterns and what we can do to invite more ‘Shift” into our lives. 

Enjoy the ease with which Britt shares her own discoveries, and what she knows works, to give people access to the freedom and spontaneity that allows for a fulfilling life! 

• • •

In this episode:

Britt shares a “Wow” 

“The moment I first realized that I had the ability to help other people change their lives for the better. It was my very first client during my internship, and I helped remove a debilitating, irrational fear. There's nothing better than helping someone find that freedom!”

Britt shares a “Whisper” 

“My first Whisper in regards to hypnosis and the mind/body connection was when I was a kid with severe asthma, and realized that I could stop or prevent an attack with the power of my own mind. ”

• • •

Episode Quote:

“My personal mission is to provide channels for people of all income levels to receive the benefits of hypnotherapy, even if they cannot afford one-on-one sessions. ” — Britt Sheflin

Listeners please  note:

Britt fulfills on this mission by offering creating affordable DIY hypnosis kits tailored to each person's suggestibility type, where they receive an instructional e-booklet with cognitive tools, as well as hypnosis session recordings, and unlimited email support during their process of change.

• • •

About my special guest:

As a small child, Britt would delve so deeply into her private fantasy land (self-hypnosis), that she would be fully immersed in whole worlds that were rich and wonderful layers to add to her daily experience of life. It was these journeys where she first discovered that imagination was a powerful tool, not only for entertainment, but for creating desired change. 

In young adulthood, Britt made those far-fetched childhood fantasies reality, by moving to Alaska. There she learned about homesteading, permaculture, traveling the world, treehouses, and dance performance. Her performance career landed her in Las Vegas, where she briefly worked in a hypnosis show, and became fascinated with how powerful hypnosis is.

After moving to Los Angeles to continue performing and teaching dance, Britt developed a successful career as a private chef and a burgeoning filmmaker. Shortly thereafter, Britt met her wonderful partner and future father of their child.  She decided to use her self-hypnosis skills for her own labor and delivery. It resulted in a very peaceful, and incredibly comfortable childbirth that inspired her to study hypnosis in a professional capacity.

In 2017, Britt  went through the excellent Internship Program at HMI in Tarzana, California. Since then, Britt has become a Master Hypnotist, Certified Hypnotherapist, member of the American Hypnosis Association, and the Hypnotherapist's Union, Local 472. Britt continues her lifelong studies of hypnosis through continuing education programs, and earning supplemental certifications, as well as by sharing her knowledge with others through workshops and presentations.

Britt looks forward to continuing her hypnotherapy journey, and sharing her unique ability to help her clients make shift happen.

29: Singing & Stylin’ in the Dark & Light | Guest Missy Gibson | Season1point5

29: Singing & Stylin’ in the Dark & Light | Guest Missy Gibson | Season1point5

February 23, 2021

Imagine studying opera as kid, like Missy Gibson did, but finding her calling as both a Rock and Irish music singer/songwriter. 

Her mother made sure that Missy was given not only an amazing education and appreciation for Opera, but the lessons to successfully master its most demanding, yet rewarding musical techniques. She calls upon them to this day, using the power of her now-refined raw talent and big voice to carve out her own path in life, on and off stage, combining her creative interest into multiple overlapping career paths, including as a personal stylist with a vintage twist. 

Imagine having a mother who believed her daughter’s inner strength could shine no matter what challenges have come her way. And it does even moreso now, as you will hear in this episode’s free-flowing conversation that deepened on air, as we encountered new wows and whispers along the way.

Imagine losing that amazing mother to a much too-early death. Missy shares this reality without self-pity, based on her extraordinary capacity and special gift to live “Grateful every day.” For her, “Life is rich” no matter what, and her love and desire for connection with people is always active. 

On top of all this, she has a sparking energy and inner vitality, sharing her view of life generously with us. Enjoy the episode!

In this episode:

Missy shares a “Wow” 

“Losing my Mom when I was 26…”

Missy shares a “Whisper” 

“My mother always whispering in my ear that I could do anything I wanted to do & be anyone I wanted to be. 

Episode Quote:

“I love people! I'm passionate about connection. I feel grateful everyday.” — Missy Gibson

About my special guest:

Missy Gibson, a Detroit native, has spent most her life as a singer songwriter and touring musician. Performing in LA bands- Breech, Nellie Bly, and traditional Irish Pub band, Paddy’s Pig.

Knowing she wanted a family and that life on the road wasn’t the most conducive choice, Missy opened a children’s resale store, which she ran successfully for several years. An avid thrifter herself with a good eye for fashion and vintage, a love for people and a desire to serve her community, this proved to be a perfect fit.

Missy soon realized that her favorite part of her retile adventure was styling kids, which soon parlayed in to styling women as well.

Missy LOVES the opportunity to help women look and feel their best by encouraging them to find and express their own personal style, which ultimately exudes confidence and well-being.

This led her add repping the LA based women’s fashion line, Cabi which serves as a great tool for her trade.

28: Energy & Freedom in Organized Living | guest Janet Fishman | Season1point5

February 22, 2021

Who wouldn’t love more energy and freedom in daily life? Have I got the perfect guest to let you in on some of the secrets to having exactly that!

Her can-do perspective is underscored by her commitment to staying on the leading edge of the highest standards and ethics in her field. She continually educates herself: she even has a Juris Doctorate which comes in very handy in guiding people though the thickets of complexity in modern life. Many facets of her work have endeared to her to clients, who collectively inspired her to rename her business to celebrate what they always tell her gives them: Hope.  Hope is powerful, fueling optimism, relief, favorable outcomes, and even feelings of trust.
