For this episode’s GFC, click here. When I was growing up my mom was really good at having prints developed of the photos that my dad took of the family.  We’d look through them, reminisce and laugh about the time we had. She’d then write the date on...

Episode 116: What Is Different About Pure Presence?

When I started on my spiritual journey, my mind was chattering away at me.  All. The. Time.  Sometimes what it was telling me was actually helpful, but often it really wasn’t.  I had read about what the Zen Buddhists call “no mind,” where the mind comes to a complete...

Episode 113: Where Do Habits REALLY Come From?

I used to have this terrible habit of chewing on the ends of pens or on pen caps. It definitely wasn’t because I was hungry and it’s not that they tasted good—I just didn’t even realize I was doing it (and probably ingested quite a bit of plastic as a result....

Episode 108: Identity – What Does It Mean To Be You?

What did you want to be when you grew up? When I was about six, I thought I wanted to be a doctor. That was primarily because I was given the Fisher Price doctor’s set which I thought was very cool. You could hear someone’s heartbeat through the stethoscope and you...

Episode 107: Embodied Acceleration

Whenever I’m learning something new, whether it’s a new recipe or a new piece of software, it can be really helpful to see what someone else has done to even know what the possibilities are. We can learn a lot from other people’s stories, and...

Episode 105: Fundamental Authenticity

Have you ever changed the way you talked or how you behaved when you were with different people? I had a friend who was exceptional at this. People loved her because she shifted who she was so much to mirror them, it’s like they felt like they were talking to...

Episode 104: Neutrality – the Real Deal

Have you ever been sensitive to what people thought of you? When I was growing up, I was always very aware of people’s emotional states, and even more so when it related to me somehow. I was a pretty sensitive kid. So when someone had an emotion that was strong,...

Episode 103: What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Episode 101: The Most Important Tool in Your Toolkit

Episode 99 A Different Perspective On Awakening

Episode 98 Productivity – Spirit Hacks

When I first read Tim Ferriss’s “The 4 Hour Work Week” many years ago, that was the first time I’d heard of the term “hack” — a way to do something way faster and better, sometimes in ways that are counter intuitive. Since then,...

Episode 97 A Key Piece of Ancient Wisdom Clarified

When I was in my early twenties, I was very intrigued by the mystical and started delving into Eastern religions to try to find some answers. I started reading about the idea of the “illusion” or maya that is mentioned in the Hindu and Buddhist...

Episode 96 Trauma In The Physical Body

When I was in third grade, one of my best friends fell while skiing and had to have a cast on her leg. I have no idea why, but I was intrigued by the whole cast thing. The crutches looked like they were fun to swing on. People wanted to sign your cast and draw things...

Episode 95 Auric Fields – What You Need To Know

Episode 92 Up Close & Personal Part II

Episode 91 The Sinister Side of E-Z

For some reason I’ve always been fascinated by hammocks. To me, there’s something that seems so leisurely about them. When I imagine a hammock, it’s always swaying beneath cloudless blue skies, in the shade of some beautiful trees or a pretty palapa,...

Episode 90 Phoenix Rising – Power & Sovereignty

When I was growing up, I used to love to read Greek and Roman mythology. The drama of all of these gods, magical creatures, and humans in all these extraordinary circumstances and having to rise above impossible odds definitely lit up my imagination. One of the...

Episode 89 An Act Of Power In Turbulent Times

When I was growing up, both my parents were very non-traditional.  When we were at home in Montreal, my dad was very much not like his friends and peers he grew up with in the ’40s and ’50s, who were much more Chinese in the sense that they were not...

Episode 87 What Hides In Plain Sight

I grew up in a close family.  My parents were involved and active with my sister and me. They’d take us camping (that random Chinese family in the various Canadian campgrounds in the 70s when it was pretty much all white people–that was us!), and we’d go...

Episode 86 How To Have Stability In Times Of Chaos

There were some kids I knew when I was growing up who just loved roller coasters. The steeper the drop, the tighter the curve, the more they loved it. I was NOT one of those kids. I liked the rides where it felt like you were flying, like those flying swings that went...

Episode 85 Your Hidden Superpower

When I was a little girl, I REALLY wanted to fly. I’d run as fast as I could, with my arms outstretched down this little hill behind the apartment building that we lived in. I thought that if I could just run fast enough I’d actually take off. There were moments...

Episode 84 Special Abilities – Who Needs Them?

When we were in New Zealand a few years ago it was the first time I ever actually saw someone shapeshift. For real. We were on a small bus with a group of 12 people and our guide was a very powerful (although we didn’t know who she was at the time) Maori elder who was...

Episode 83 When It’s Legit To Quit

The way I was raised, quitting was never an option. It didn’t really matter if something wasn’t fun, fulfilling or sometimes even productive—I simply had to finish what I started. Usually, “because I said so.” This wasn’t something unique to my family, either....

Episode 81 Behind The Helper Frequency

  Of the various aunts and uncles on both sides of my parents’ families, my father’s only sister was the one I knew best when I was growing up. Every summer she’d come visit for a few weeks and live with us. She had no children of her own and my mom (who...

Episode 80 What Is Time?

I don’t know if this happened for you, but when I was little, I seemed to have So. Much. Time. In fact, the time between birthday parties, Halloween, Christmas—or basically anything fun at all—seemed like an eternity. And then something about that changed. The older I...

Episode 79 Speaking The Language Of Animals, Plants & Crystals

I’ve always had a love for crystals and trees. When I was little, I used to sing to the trees and I’d imagine them whispering and singing back to me. And I loved collecting pretty rocks, especially if they had little sparkly bits in them. Those were definitely my...

Episode 78 Starbound – What You Need To Know

I don’t know about you, but I remember when the movie E.T. came out. It was the first time I went to a movie without my mom.  I was totally terrified of what ET might be. To me, aliens seemed like something creepy, and for sure that’s how they were usually...

Episode 77 What Is Control Anyway?

When I was growing up, my dad would always look at any situation, assess what the worst case scenario would be and then did the work to plan for that possibility. He was never afraid to put in the work required to prepare for that possibility, and in many ways it was...

Episode 76 Food What Matters

  When my sister and I were kids, my mom did not allow us to eat sugar unless it was a birthday, Halloween, or we were traveling away somewhere. She was a nurse and was quite controlled and intentional about what we ate, so as a family we very rarely ate out....

Episode 75 The World Of Sleep & Dreams

I used to have really vivid dreams when I was a kid. One recurring dream I had often was I knew that I could fly, but I was never sure if I’d be able to in the particular dream I was in at the time, and if so, how far up and how quickly. Sometimes I’d zoom around and...

Episode 74 Best Practices For Integration & Acceleration

My dad was always the type of guy who wanted to get things done as quickly and effectively as possible. Even when I was a little kid, he was always reading things like speed reading, or the 7 habits of the most effective people. He was an “all in” kind of guy. When he...

Episode 73 When Less Is More

I was extremely fortunate when growing up. My parents considered travel to be a fundamental part of my sister’s and my education. My father wanted us to experience the places where the great ancient civilizations had been, that he had never had the opportunity to...

Episode 72 Do You Need A Guru?

I’ve been fascinated by spirit and have always been intensely curious about how the unseen works for over 25 years, so inevitably I’ve crossed paths with gurus, Asian masters, shamans, adepts and teachers. I’ve been extremely lucky. At least three times (that I’m...

Episode 71 Are We Free?

When I was about eight years old, my parents brought my sister and me to Southeast Asia, so we could get a sense of where my father was from and for us to get to know the large extended family we had not yet met. On the way to Malaysia, where my father grew up in what...

Episode 70 Up Close & Personal

I’ve always been curious about how people who have honed a certain skill for a long time got to where they are now. That’s why I used to watch documentaries like Jiro Loves Sushi or the Kings of Pastry or Sky Ladder where you get a small taste of how someone who is...

Episode 69 So, What’s The Story?

When I was a little kid, I loved to sing. Not to perform — just singing for the sake of singing. I’d sing to myself all the time. When I became a teenager I’d rock out and sing along with my clock-radio to all the top 40 songs. My mom and I would sing along to all her...
