Perhaps you've seen Dr. Terry Wahl's viral Ted Talk with over 2 million views!

If you’ve ever had inflammation, an auto-immune disease, sore joints, heart-disease, asthma, high blood pressure, or if you’re just plain human, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’re interview Dr. Terry Wahls, one of the most extraordinary doctors out there. She’s come back from MS, and from a life in traditional medicine, to develop a functional medicine protocol to help us all live healthier, more energetic lives TODAY, and to come back from autoimmune disorders from MS, to Luppus, Lyme Disease, Diabetes, Chronic Fatigue, and the list goes on and on and on.

Today we’ll talk about the heart of disease, why at it’s source, it’s all cellular dysfunction, where it comes from, and most importantly, what in the world we can do about it, beginning TODAY.

That’s most important to me, that and kicking butt energetically. Jessica and I don’t have a show to run, but we want a family too, and we’re both coming back from long-term illness, her more than me. But if we admit it to ourselves, aren’t we all struggling in some way health-wise? We were never meant to be tired, achy, and old before our time, or brain-fogged at any age. And we were never meant to live on pharmaceuticals and a lifetime suppy of supplements.

Today you’re in for a special treat! I just finished an interview I’ll have up in two weeks, but I was so excited by what our guest shared, that like a kid in a candy store I wanted to get you this exercise right away!. So today we have a very relaxing, and powerful breathing exercise and meditation brought to you by our upcoming guest Patrick McKeown, a world expert on the Buteyko breathing method and author of seven books on the breath including the brand new Oxygen Advantage.

You often hear me talking about breathing in and out through the nose. There are many powerful reasons for that, one in particular is to help the mind go quiet, and rewire.

This exercise in particular will help you do just that. By practicing this exercise, you’ll literally making changes to your brain that will help you throughout the day, and any time you experience stress. This exercise will help you cultivate greater concentration, focus, patience, and relaxation, even under heavy stress. With practice it can even help you sleep better.

---Perfect Too for ADHD or a Hyper-Active Mind!!!--- 

It’s very powerful, which is why I practice it quite often, and I always stress breathing in and out through the nose.

Patrick will first discuss some of the benefits of this breathing method, then lead you in a very informal breathing meditation.

My recommendation is to listen through fully the first time, then go back to where the music begins and dive straight into the meditation, tuning out his words as you go along.

This is an exercise you can do any time of the day to immediately reduce your stress and quiet the mind. You can do this at work, at your computer, on break, at the dinner table, in bed, on a train, or almost anywhere you can think of. However, as a powerful breathing exercise that can dramatically quiet the mind, I do not recommend it while driving a car or operating heavy machinery.

If you like this meditation, please do us a huge favor and rate and review our show. It’s the #1 way you can show your support, and help others find the show. And of course, there’s lots of great karma points involved. Now we’ve been told, it’s much easier to rate and review on a computer than you’re phone. But if you’re on your phone, you have to back out of inspire nation, type inspire nation in the search, then look for the ratings and review tab. Thank you so much.

We’ll have Patrick McKeown’s full interview up in about two weeks. To check our more interviews or meditations, visit our Inspire Nation Show, or

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

There’s an expression I once heard from the late Dr. Wayne Dyer, you must die while you’re still alive, or you must almost go through your own death in order to truly live. Well, having gone through two near-death experiences, I think there’s something to that, though I’d never wish it on anyone.

But there’s a simpler way too, if we can open up our hearts, and learn from others.

Well today we have an amazing spiritual teacher on the show. His name is Mark Nepo. He’s the New York Times best-selling author of The Book of Awakening and his new book Inside the Miracle.

He’s experienced incredible suffering while having cancer not once, but twice, and at the same time as his former wife. But even in his darkest moments he didn’t become bitter, instead, he’s learned how to truly live, and I believe he’d even call it a miracle.

And that’s what I want to talk about today, about how to embrace life fully, to overcome fear, and to dive in in head on and heart-on.

Topics Include:

  • Why you can’t block fear, you can only let it through, like wind through a tree.
  • Radical acceptance
  • Letting go of the hopes and dreams and goals in order to open up
  • How letting go is the kindling of our aliveness
    • Sometimes the dream doesn’t come true, but WE come true.
  • Story of Japanese monk Tetsugen
  • Pay attention to what brings you alive, follow what brings you alive.
    • Trust literally means to follow your heart
    • Respect literally means to look again
  • How to reframe and have trust in the middle of something difficult
    • Under everything we go through there is solid ground.
  • To be broken is no reason to see all things as broken.
  • Even if we fall down, we’re on solid ground…build from wherever you’re at, even if it’s a square inch.
  • Alcoholism vs. Make-aholism
  • Best way to honor someone we love is to be the best switch we can
  • Story of Janice and Tom
  • The teaching power of trees – rooted and leaves sway with the wind, they give
    • We must be rooted, and we must sway or be flexible
  • A miracle is a process, not an event.
  • How to follow your heart
    • Integrity toward aliveness
  • How to listen to your hearts
    • Being in the present moment – mindfulness – closest to everything that ever lived
    • Stay in that perfect present moment.
  • Your heart and your life are bigger than anything you can feel and experience
    • Trust that our heart will find a way
    • Whatever is opened in us is more important than what opens us.

Today we’re going to do a very special, kindness and compassion mediation. This is a great meditation to help you feel better, and help raise the vibration of the entire planet!

You can do this meditation any time of the day, and I especially recommend it for the middle of the day, particularly when you’re around others.

This meditation goes beautiful with today’s guest, Mark Nepo, NYT best-selling author of The Book of Awakening and his new book Inside the Miracle, who’s had to learn a thing or two about kindness and compassion, particularly for himself.

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor and rate and review our show. Ratings and reviews are the #1 you can show your support, and help others to find the show. That plus it’s great karma!!!

To check out Mark Nepo’s interview…and yes he was on Oprah! Or to check out our latest meditations, visit our inspire nation show, or

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


Okay, this is an exceptionally simple meditation.

You can do this anywhere, at any time. This is a go to meditation of mine on subways, in traffic, at intersections, or anywhere else people are stressed.

Emotion is an energy, which means a frequency…everything is a frequency. And the more we focus on the energy of kindness and compassion, the more we can change the frequency of everything and everyone around us.

Things like to come into vibrational harmony, hit a tuning fork, and everything around it begins to vibrate at the same frequency…and the bigger and stronger the fork, the more of an affect it has.

So the more you’re in a frequency of kindness and compassion, the more others will be as well…and if they’re not quite there, you’ll still help them to be a bit more loving, less anxious, and all-around feel better.

Best of all, you’ll feel better too. Science has shown that thinking of others, releases the most amazing healing, and feel-good chemicals and hormones in the brain, chemicals we can’t release when we focus only on ourselves...

Today we have a very inspired entrepreneur, artist and athlete, who will be talking with us about overcoming hurdles, chasing your dreams, and doing what it takes to succeed. He should know, he’s built over 20 companies worth over 100 million dollars (combined).

His name is Mike Stemple, and I’m proud to call him my friend, and our first mentor, when we were getting our first company RunBare together, what feels like eons ago. Mike has a knack for cutting through the B.S. and getting at the core of what it takes to succeed. He’s done this with dozens of startups, while running ultra-endurance races, and in his own way, with his artwork as well. If you’ve ever driven i-25 through Denver, you’ve likely seen his Denver Bronco’s mural on a prominent building.

I think though, what impresses me most about Mike is his inability to quit, hear no, or get discouraged, no matter what. To make 20 million dollar companies, means being willing to fail, and fail a LOT, something Mike knows a lot about too. But he knows how to ride fear, or look past it, something I’m fascinated by.

Mike’s life hasn’t been all roses, he lost his hearing as a child and developed a speech problem. He damaged his brain in a car accident at 24 losing his medical and military career. He’s struggled with depression himself, and with severe illness, something I’ll let him tell you about.

But Mike has come back, time and time again, not just to build companies, but to inspire us all. At age 39 he became a sponsored athlete after running hundreds of miles across the desert sands in the Sahara. I guess that’s why he calls himself, a full-time inspirer.

Questions Include:

  • What was life like for you as a kid?
  • How did you become a serial entrepreneur?
  • You’ve had numerous very serious health-challenges and really trying times. In retrospect, why do you think these happened?
  • What’s your mission in life? How would you say it’s changed or evolved?
  • How or why did you ever think, I’d like to become a sponsored athlete and run across the sahara?
  • How do you get the idea to start a company?
  • What have been some start ups we may be familiar with?
  • I’ve recently heard the expression from numerous sources fail fast. What do you think of failure?
  • Can You Talk About the Law of Attraction, The Secret, and Yoda
  • You used to have a website, what do you mean by that?
  • What’s the illness you’ve struggled with?
  • Recently, you struggled through a pretty dark time. I think we ALL go through dark times, if we can recognize that, they often make us stronger. What did you go through and how did it change you?
    • What advice would you give for parents raising kids, or to empower kids these days?

Topics Include:

  1. Lost hearing – learning how to communicate
    1. Learning it was okay to fail
    2. Learned failure will only happen if work hard and try but success will only happen if try
    3. Yoda – try or not try – disagrees, thinks all there is is the try
  2. Fail and Fail Fast
    1. Rails against Yoda Quote, because greatest things in his life at moment thought failure was imminent – if believed it was absolute, that there was nothing beyond

      1. Didn’t want to play it safe
      2. Wanted to truly “live”
  • Act to prove his health
  1. Training became his full-time job
  2. Separated shoulder on flight to Chile
  3. Spiritually was vacant – didn’t go there with full respect of The Universe
  • Spiritual experience – changed person
  1. “I lived my whole life to become the person I am today – was it worth it?”
  2. Flipped “worth” question around – was my life worth it to The Universe
    1. Realized lived so much about “me” was I worthy of my life?
  3. Back from desert
  4. Succeed more than you lose
  5. Favorite moments
    1. 20 100 million dollar plus companies or “step children” to him
    2. Skinit
    3. Rich N Wraps (3M bought them)
    4. Odojo,
    5. Lesoro,
    6. Enriche
  6. Courage vs. Bravery
    1. Courage exists in fear, bravery transcends it
    2. Like’s courage since has to be with fear
    3. Learns to separate the rational vs. the irrational fear.
  7. How do you predict success?
    1. “Effectual Action”
      1. Premise #1 (bedrock of overcoming fear)
        1. Overcoming who are you?
        2. What do you know?
        3. Who do you know?
          1. Everything will come out mediocre if try to do it all yourself
        4. Passion is the box that holds the above 3 questions together
  • Can’t do a “money idea”
  1. Why “Wet T-Shirt In A Box” is a Million Dollar Idea, but NOT the right way to go.
  3. Passion idea is always best – must be something you totally believe in
  • YOU must be YOUR avatar!!!
  • Johnny Iveand Steve Jobs, biggest fans of their products
  1. Can’t be about the money…world is littered with start-ups this way
    1. Has to be about your passion – if you’re not 100% a believer in it, you won’t have the strength for your company.
    2. Always refer to your company as if it’s an individual and a person.
  2. Have to be very introspective
  3. Premise #2 Acceptable loss – what am I willing to lose by doing this venture?
  • Are you passionate about it???
  1. Human condition – suffering will come to us
    1. Everyday given choice, free will, to chose, to dream, to aspire to be better
  2. Live life, put it all at risk, put it to the edge and beyond, create with no ego
  1. Have Courage
  2. Believe your worthy of doing extraordinary things: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckenberg, Richard Branson…they are no different than us, we all have the right, we just need to go out and seize it.
  3. Feed dreams and starve fears!!!

You can do this meditation any time of the day, and anywhere you’d like, it’s particularly fun to do on a park bench, on the subway, or anywhere you can radiate love all around you. Of course, you can certainly do it from the privacy of your own home as well. And if you have pets, particularly kitty-cats, expect them to come around.

To begin, as always, I want you to breathe nice and slow and deep in through the nose, and out through the nose as well.

Nice and slow and deep.

Now imagine a glowing three-dimensional warm glowing ball in your heart-chakra or center point in your chest…

Hi Everyone! Jessica Lee here, Michael Sandler’s wife and wing-mate in life and occasional host on Inspire Nation. If you’re new to the show, Michael is your regular host, but today for the second time ever, a rare event indeed, I’m turning the tables on Michael, so today he’s a guest on his own show.

If you’ve been listening to the show, then you’ve likely heard Michael mention a couple of near death accidents he’s had. Today, we’re going to revisit near death accident number one, what transpired right before, what exactly took place so that Michael found himself flying through the air before crashing down on a cement sidewalk and how he found his way back, stronger and more vibrant than ever before.

If you’ve ever felt completely upside down, like you’ve been thrown in a blender and tossed around or as if someone’s just hit the reset button on your life, then do we have the show for you.

We’ll be talking about why we sometimes need a cosmic two by four from the universe, what you can learn from life’s seemingly darkest moments, and how a positive attitude can make all the difference between slipping away versus rising to the occasion and shining brighter than ever before.

Key Questions Include

  1. Michael, before, we dive into the events that place on April 2nd, 2006, let’s talk about the adventure you were about to embark on that summer. Can you share what you were busy training for up until that point?
  2. Had you had any fears or hesitations about the upcoming journey?
  3. Were the pieces falling into place naturally and easily?
  4. Now let’s head to the morning of April 2nd, 2006. That day you were out for a regular training skate on a beautiful spring-like Sunday morning in Boulder, Colorado. Can you paint a picture of what that day was like?
  5. At one point, you stopped to take a break and cool off. Can you share what happened there?
  6. Had you been listening to Inspiration by Dr. Wayne Dyer?
  7. So you laced up and headed off again down the trail, then what happened?
  8. The EMT’s arrive and they keep asking you if you’ve hit your head, why?
  9. Was there a sense of relief? Do you think perhaps there was a part of you that felt this trip was a mistake?
  10. So you arrive at the hospital and the doctor takes x-rays of your leg. What was his prognosis?
  11. How did you know everything was going to go back perfectly?
  12. Did you have any fear whatsoever?
  13. After you’ve woken up after surgery, the doctor comes rushing into your room with new x-rays.
  14. At that point, how long were the hospital personnel planning on keeping you there?
  15. How did you convince them to release you early?
  16. At this point, it might seem like the hardest part of the ordeal was over, meaning surviving the accident and getting out of the hospital. But things didn’t get easier. When the accident took place, your fiancé at the time was out of the country. Two weeks after you get out of the hospital, she breaks up with you. I imagine that was extremely devastating at the time. You’re lying or sitting in bed for much of everyday, barely able to care for yourself. Stacks of hospital bills are starting to arrive in the mail. You can’t work. And then the woman you think you’re going to spend the rest of your life with drops you cold. What was going through your mind?
  17. Why do you think the Universe served it all to you at once?
  18. How did you stay positive?
  19. What was the process like for you learning to walk again?
  20. Was there ever any question?
  21. What did you discover out on the trails?
  22. Often, when we experience a major health crisis, it’s like hitting the reset button. I’ve found that in my own experience, it’s an opportunity to break old patterns and habits that no longer serve us and to put in new habits that do.
  23. What were old habits that didn’t serve you?
  24. Where new habits that came out of this experience?

Today we have a very short, relaxing meditation that’ll help you calm the body as well as the mind.

It’s called the Slow Breath, and I’ll show you in just minute why it has this name.

You can do this meditation anytime of the day, but I love it best in the evenings, when I want to slow down, and quiet my mind.

If you like this meditation, please do us a HUGE favor and rate and review our show. Ratings and Reviews are the #1 way you can help us, and support the show. Plus it’s great karma!

To hear more great meditations from me, or our guests, visit our Inspire Nation Show, or

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


Okay, for this meditation, you’re going to want to sit nice and tall, or laying on your back with your hands by your sides.

In short, I’m going to count out your breaths, and I want you to do them, nice, and slow and controlled. This is about breathing in through the nose, and if possible, out through the nose as well.

The trick it to go slow and controlled, and get as much air as you can into your belly. Yes, you won’t want a tight belt or taught draw string for this one.

A key point, if you have a medication condition such as heart disease or asthma, check with your doctor first, and make sure it’s okay to practice, very slow, deep breathing.
