If you’ve ever struggled in a relationship, thought it was too hard, too ugly, too much baggage, or that it may be time to call it quits, or if you’ve been looking for your soulmate, but wondered if he is she is even out there…and how in the world you can finally have a GOOD relationship, then do we have the show for you!

It also helps put you in a state of Heart Coherence where according to Arrielle your electromagnetic field becomes 12 fet wider than your body, and you actually boost your immune system for up to 8 hours, just by allowing yourself to feel love, appreciation and gratitude.

The start of the meditation is a technique called a Heart Lock-in , and according to Arielle was made by the ‘Geniuses’ at the Institute of Heart Math.

Do you want to be inspired and feel you can accomplish anything in life? Then this interview with Ben Saunders, world-record arctic explorer is for you!

Ben had a dream to complete the Scott Expedition, an 1800 mile journey on foot to the South Pole and back considered so dangerous, no one had attempted it in over 100 years. The last team all died trying.

But Ben believed he could do it. He doesn’t understand impossible. Instead he took 10 years preparing, raising 5 million dollars, and building a team to make the impossible possible.  

Then he stepped onto the ice and into the unknown. For 105 days he pulled a 440 pound sled, over glaciers, ice-fields, even mountains in sub-zero blizzard conditions.

It’s a journey so daunting it’s hard to comprehend. But we all can relate. We each have our mountains to climb and arctic deserts to traverse. We can learn from Ben how to get started, stay motivated, find solutions, and put one foot in front of the other to succeed at our dreams, no-matter-what.

Ben Saunders is truly Shining Bright and after listening, you can’t help but shine brighter too! And, chances are, you’ll be ready and raring to take on your day and your next great adventure! 

Key Topics:

  • his new perspective on life following a recent near death accident while cycling
  • how Ben is anything but a reckless adrenaline junkie
  • his inspiration for pursuing career in arctic exploration
  • at 23, his first attempt to reach the North Pole
  • how Ben became obsessed with completing the Scott Expedition
  • how he lulled himself into a false sense of security
  • their daily diet during the Scott Expedition
  • his mental self-talk to staying positive during the expedition 
  • setting the smallest possible goals and focusing on what you can do instead of what you can’t
  • trusting things will get better, such as light, weather, etc
  • what Ben was dreading and fearing the most on the Scott Expedition
  • the circumstances leading up to Ben’s decision to call for help

 

Top 3 Pieces of Advice:

  1. self-belief, is a muscle that needs exercise, which means stepping out of your comfort zone…
  2. success isn’t what happens at the end of the journey…
  3. keeping a sense of humor and remembering to have fun…

Hi Everyone, Michael Sandler here your host on inspire nation. Today we have a very special, end-of-the-year meditation, or visualization. This meditation fits perfectly with Ben Saunders our guest today, who’s helping us all to dream big and achieve big dreams!

This meditation can be done anytime, though I recommend it first thing in the morning, last thing at nice, or even twice a day to really burn your dreams, hopes, wishes, and goals, deep into your psyche.

If you like this meditation and find it helpful, please do us a HUGE favor and rate and review our show on iTunes. It’s the #1 way to show your support, and to help others to find the show. That and it’s great karma points for the new year!

To hear Ben’s amazing interview, or hear more meditations from me or our guests, please visit our inspire nation show or www.InspireNationShow.com.

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way. Namaste.

Okay, this is a super-simple meditation, but it requires your help. I want you to visualize what’d you like for the new year. Dream big. Is it a new job? Starting a new company? A new home? A new baby? To move across the country? Or the world? Or to become a world changer, a game changer, or a planet saver? Or maybe it’s more spiritual, to improve your practice, to dive deep, to take your spirituality or connection to an entirely new level, or to find a spiritual teacher or guide to help you on your path. Or maybe it’s more physical, such as your greatest health, or a return to perfect health, or to run a 5K or even marathon this spring. Or maybe it’s financial? To have your greatest wealth, to finally open a savings account and save or bring in more than you spend. Or maybe it’s relationship oriented, to improve your relationship, find that special someone, or to get married and start a family.

Whatever it is, it’s entirely up to you, in co-creation with the Universe. By coming up with a goal, and putting it out there, you help bring it into your reality.

So today we’ll do something really simple, we’ll just focus 100% entirely on your breath, and then on your goal. We’ll repeat it over and over again, and help you burn it into your psyche.

Last thought before we begin. I’d love you to come up with a mantra or short phrase that represents your desire. For instance, Jessica and I want a giant goal to help one million listeners in 2016. So a good mantra for us, is may be Help one million in 2016. Help One Million in 2016. It’s big, it’s a bit crazy, but it just may happen. And the more we repeat it, the more the thought becomes a thing…

It was the ultimate twist of fate that a famous neurosurgeon who taught at Harvard, and would tell patients and students alike that the soul is merely an illusion of the mind, would be struck down with what should have been a fatal brain disease.

Dr. Eben Alexander spent a week in a coma, brain-dead with cerebral meningitis, with doctors suggesting his wife pull the plug. They gave up on antibiotics and waited for him to die. But after 7 days without any signs of brain activity, he miraculously came back, and with the most incredible near-death experience to share.

This is a truly life-changing interview. Here’s a doctor who’s entire life was built around a premise that there is no afterlife. And yet when he returns, he shares a completely different story. If you believe his story, and it’s hard not to, then it completely changes, or affirms, everything we think about life, about death, and where we’re going from here.

It can’t help but get you thinking, and quite possibly living your life a different way.

This is an incredibly powerful and heartfelt interview that’ll have you on the edge of your seat, and leave you feeling great to be alive! 

Show Introduction:

Today we have a life-changing guest on the show. I found his book to be incredible powerful, and moving. It’s ironic to say moving, since you used to be one of the most analytical, left-brained people out there.

His name is Dr. Eben Alexander, until 2008 he had been a renowned academic neurosurgeon for over 30 years and taught at Harvard Medical Center for over 15 years. He thought he knew how the mind, brain and consciousness worked, and that Near Death Experiences, and any other unusual experiences were merely illusions or aberrations created by the mind. If someone was resuscitated and told him about it, perhaps seeing a bright light, or visiting deceased loved one’s, he’d very kindly and compassionately tell them it just wasn’t possible. It wasn’t science, and that they’re mind made it up.

Yet he’d seen a lot in the operating room and in ER. He’d seen patient appear to die and come back. He’d seen miraculous bursts of lucidity or clarity just before people’s deaths, and much more that he couldn’t even begin to explain. But as a hard-nosed scientist, he ignored people’s stories, reports, and what he’d even seen with his own two eyes.

And that made him such a perfect candidate for what would happen next.

That’s where we pick up the interview, talking about Near Death Experiences, the possibility of after-life, about what the human brain does and does not do…or maybe to say, why it doesn’t let us see certain things, and why what he experienced means so much for us.

This won’t be all woo-woo, because that’s not where Dr. Alexander comes from, he comes from the linear, right brain, Age of Reason, scientific, PROVE IT WITH SCIENCE and statistics world.

This is a life-changing interview, if nothing else, it’ll stop you in your tracks, giving you a new perspective on life, on death, and of living your greatest life here on Earth.

For myself, I found Dr. Eben Alexander’s book Proof of God, to be perhaps the most single important book I’ve ever read this lifetime. And if you know my show, you’ll know I read a LOT.

Topics Include:

Topics and Questions:

  1. What was Dr. Eben Alexander like before he “died”.
  2. What happened physically when he contracted meningitis.
  3. Why he shouldn’t have lived from the rare, fatal disease.
  4. What he experiencing while he was brain dead.
  5. What was happening to him spirituality during this week and beyond.
  6. Could it have been a brief hallucination, delusion, or fantasy?
  7. Reading your latest book, it seems like these experiences have happened since the beginning of written work, if these are so real, why haven’t they been studied, or written up, or why isn’t this knowledge mainstream?
  8. There’s a point in your journey where you were travelling on a butterfly, and a woman was there with you who told you three key things. What were those three things?
  9. How long did it feel like you were gone for?
  10. In the Map of Heaven, you talk about having lost hope, or the newness for life before your experience. What were you like when you came back?
  11. I (Michael Sandler) have had two near-death experiences, both of which radically changed me. Even the laugh you here now, and my Woo Hoo came out of my experiences. I’m not the same person I was, each time I died on the trails. How have you changed?
  12. During my second experience, the best-way I could describe it, was I was getting downloads, like drinking from a firehouse. I was laying in a freezing creek by Lake Tahoe, forcing myself to breath, staring out up at the most brilliant sun I’ve ever seen, while torrents of information seemed to come to me. I’m still working to decipher them all, but this show was one of the pieces that came out of it. I was reading in your book that you were taking these fantastical visits and getting the most incredible downloads. I don’t know how you put it in words, but what kind of downloads were you getting?
  13. What kind of downloads did you get?
  14. What’s your latest insight based on the downloads or on the experience?
  15. What does this experience mean for us?
  16. What can you tell us about the brain and consciousness, based on what you’ve learned
  17. Jessica always asks that I ask a question about children, child-raising, or infants. In this case, she asked if kids come into this world without the same veil, buffers, or restrictions of an adult mind, kids brains also limit them in the same way adult brains do, or is the veil more translucent at this point?
  18. What are some of the key themes you learned from your journey?
  19. What does it mean to be living under the aspect of eternity?
  20. What does Love vs. Fear mean to you?
  21. How can we live differently based on what you’ve experienced?
  22. Writing this book could not have done wonders for your career as a neurosurgeon, so why did you write this book? And what’s the most important thing you hope people get from it?
  23. Why did you write The Map of Heaven, your second book?
  24. You write toward the end of your second book The Map of Heaven, a quote of Aldous Huxley, a famous writer “This world is an illusion, but it is an illusion we must take seriously. Because it is real as far as it goes…we must find a way of being in this world while not being in it.” Why did you include this, and what do you mean by it?

Hi Everyone, Michael Sandler here, your host on Inspire Nation. Today I’d planned on sharing with you a meditative journey of the Christmas walk I took with my wife and co-host Jessica Lee, but then we received a text from a dear friend on Maui where we lived for many years. He was visiting an ancient Heiau, pronounced (Hey Ow) on Maui, or holy temple grounds of the Hawaiian ancestors.

It was a place we’ve been to many times ourselves, over Christmas, or New Years, or Solstice. A place to reconnect, to say our prayers, and to make our well wishes for the days ahead. It’s also been a tremendous place to say prayers for healing, and watch them come true

So today, as a special Christmas treat, I’ll take you on a short Hawaiian adventure, to a heiau, on the northwest side of the Valley Isle of Maui, one of the youngest islands on the chain.

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor and rate and review our show. And feel free to make a donation on our InspireNationShow.com website, it helps keep the lights on for you.

To hear more meditations from me, or our guests, visit our inspire nation show or inspirenationshow.com.

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way. Namaste.

Once you’re comfortably in position, I’d like you to breathe in nice and slowly, in and out through the nose.

And as you continue to breathe deep, I’d like you to imagine you’ve taken a magical trip all the way over to Maui. It’s a beautiful day, sunshine above, slight mist clinging over the mountains in the distance, and you can smell the sweet fresh fruit of mangos, papayas, guava, and even a hint of berries in the air…

Ever feel no matter how hard you try, success and happiness always eludes you? Want to make a shift that turns this all around? If so, then this inspiring interview with the incredibly successful film-maker and producer of the award-winning movie What the Bleep Do We Know is for you!

Betsy shares her journey to meteoric success with What the Bleep, and then how she cracked, and how her world then fractured apart.

People thought she had ALL the answers. She was considered spiritually enlightened, paid thousands for motivational, spiritual gigs, and even opened for Deepak Chopra. She thought she had all the answers too. Then she cracked, and found she had none! But out of this came a shiftin of her beliefs, that helped her put her life back together again, and to live the life of her dreams.

She shares a key secret to life, that happiness is an inside job. She also shares how we can find this inside of ourselves. She helps us become more mindful, culture greater awareness or consciousness, and helps us learn to be more present with our thoughts, and our belief systems.

She recently wrote a book called Tipping Sacred Cows. The goal, to help us all see how we’re trapped by our beliefs, and how we can unearth and get rid of these limiting thoughts.

She discusses The Secret, meditation, and the Law of Attraction – and how she uses it along with attachment, and failure. And why failure to her, is one of the greatest ways to live! She also talks about the My Life Sucks game and how to use it to turn your life around.

And she talks about teaching our kids how to think, keep them from limiting beliefs, and help keep their awareness and consciousness open to all possibilities.

This is a fascinating discussion filled with laughter, insightful moments, and great stories. Most of all, it’s filled with fantastic advice to help us unlock our own beliefs, see what’s limiting us, and to tip our own sacred cows. After listening to Betsy, you’ll be looking at your world, a different way, with more unlimited potential and less blocking your path.

That, and after you’re done laughing, you’ll feel pretty darn good about life as well!

Want to attract greater happiness, health, success, wealth and love into your life? Then this interview with self-love expert and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Kamal Ravikant author of the runaway bestseller Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It, is for you!

Kamal wasn’t always a self-help expert. He was a successful tech start-up expert until the last company he started completely blew up. He lost friends, investors, his savings, his health, determination, and everything he had. Depressed and dejected, he holed himself up in bed in a dark room, saying “feeling depressed was on my better days”.

But then one day, he couldn’t take it anymore, and crawled to his journal, where he made a sacred vow with himself. That vow would transform his life, and the lives of countless others.

His life rebounded, his health took off, relationships improved, and even his finances dramatically turned around.

Then he wrote a book on it which became an overnight sensation!

In this inspiring interview you’ll learn about his sacred vow, how me made it, kept it, and his secret to transforming your life. 

You’ll leave with the tools you need to make each moment magical and with a beaming ear-to-ear smile!

 

  • Key Topics:
  • how to change your life from the inside-out
  • how commitment is the fastest way to building self-confidence
  • how sometimes a lack of resources leads to the best innovation
  • how humans are still animals and how you can use this to your advantage
  • when your life isn’t going well, ask yourself, “Who am I being?”
  • how sometimes Kamal still gets lazy, falls, gets back up again
  • how special people started appearing in his life
  • why things don’t always work out the way Kamal wants
  • why Kamal only does things that he cares about
  • why Kamal doesn’t believe in “fake it till you make it”
  • the answer Kamal got when he asked a monk the secret to inner peace
  • the root cause of why you suffer
  • what it means for you to say “yes” to life

  • the best contribution you can make to the world
  • how to uncover the best version of yourself
  • what it means to live your truth and how
  • an important lesson about suffering Kamal learned at 18 in the army
  • why you shouldn’t be seduced by instant success

Today we have a very short, relaxing meditation you can do anytime of the day, anywhere you’re at. This is particularly helpful when you’re in stuck in traffic, in line, or stuck circling a parking spot looking for a space, ANY space, this crazy time of year.

I almost embarrassed by how simple this meditation is, but in it’s simplicity lies it’s beauty.

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor and rate and review our show on iTunes. A lot of people have been saying lately they’re having difficulties doing this. The simplest way is to do on your mac, rather than your phone. But if you do it on your phone you want to close inspire nation. Search for inspire nation. Then click the ratings and review tab.

Thank you so much, this greatly helps others to find the show.

To listen to more meditations by me or our guests, visit our Inspire Nation Show, or InspireNationShow.com.

And soon we’ll have an entire show dedicated to meditations, our Inspire Nation Meditation Show. Stay tuned!

I send love. I send light. And many, many blessings your way. Namaste.

Okay, so what I’d like you to do is sit up good and tall, or relax on your back…and of course, you can do this standing as well.

I want you to take a few nice slow, deep breaths, in through the nose, down to the belly, then back out nice and slow through the nose...

If you ever wanted to calm your monkey mind, quiet the chatter, and move from a place of dis-ease or dis-harmony to a place of inner peace and bliss, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking with Yuval Ron, a world-renowned musician, composer, educator, peace activist, record producer and author of Divine Attunenment: Music as a Path to Wisdom. He’s also composed the music for the Oscar-winning film West Bank Story, has performed for the Dalai Lama, the King of Morroco, and many, many more. Personally, I’d consider him a modern Rumi of Music.

Right now you’re listening to a brief sample of his called The Souring Soul. Healing Sounds for Balance and Creativity. We’ll listen for a brief moment, then pick right back. Enjoy. 

I hope you enjoyed listening and feel a little more relaxed and in the zone. Today we’re going to talk about the healing power of music…how it can calm us, give us greater focus and literally promote greater health throughout the body.

Plus we’ll talk about Saturday morning cartoons, whirling dervishes, and perhaps even sacred ecstasy…no it’s not what you think!

Questions and Topics Include:

  1. How Yuval got his start in making music for cartoons.
  2. How he began working on talk shows (David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey) and shows of the week, but main work was cartoons.
  3. How Yuval got involved in Sufi music.
  4. How he was scoring an Egyptian film and an Israeli score at the same time.
  5. What is sacred ecstasy?
  6. What is the connection between Sufi whirling and Jewish Chasidism?
  7. What is a whirling dervish and why is it such a spiritual motion?
  8. What is the potential or purpose of a Kiertan?
  9. Why the circle and spinning is so important?
  10. How we can use music to slow us down.
  11. How Yuval began working with Robert Monroe and music to change brain wave or emotional wave states.
  12. How Yuval began working with Richard Gold for Meta
  13. How we can move away from the dependency on headphones.
  14. How Yuval began using pulsation that is embedding in the music.
  15. The danger of aggressive music, techno-music, and heavy metal
  16. The direct link between the music you consume and your spiritual health.
  17. Why what you hear is what you are.
  18. How our brain makes a judgment based more on the nuance (the music) of the word, over the meaning of the word.
  19. People can here it on www.metamindfulnessmusic.com and www.yuvalronmusic.com.
  20. How to use music to balance your doshas or your mind, body, and emotions.
  21. The scientific power of Ohm.
  22. What partaking in the sound-making is a lot more powerful than just listening.
  23. Why we want to re-tune ourselves with meditation or music
  24. What kind of music is recommended for you while working?
  25. Why you need to choose music based on your activity.
  26. How sound and music can change your perspective
  27. What is harmonic sound and why is it so important?
