  Power Quotes From The Show Why Our Senses Are Numb "With our modern way of living and as we continue to separate ourselves farther from nature, it has invited us to numb our senses. We're less keen on feeling the dirt on the bottom of our feet as we're walking throughout the field and absorbing the negative ions to help destress our physical system through the process of earthing which has been a natural process for many generations before us. The way that we engage with life today is affecting our biology every day as all of these types of technology can stun our senses and some of us are still learning how to take a deep inhalation and notice the different aromatic qualities when we're walking by a tree." - Dr. Nick Berry   The Power of Grounding "We're now living a more indoor lifestyle in homes and offices in front of computers which affect our magnetic field but conscientiously engaging with nature, working with the breath, and being more present will awaken your senses. Your body is a natural resource that connects with all living things and the more that you can continue to harmonize and strengthen your physical vessel, the more your senses will heighten when you step into nature and take in all of these subtle cues as a result of it." - Dr. Nick Berry   Building Greater Physical Intelligence with Essential Oils "As we continue to work with essential oils, one of the biggest gifts that they can give us is not just that instantaneous connection with nature, especially for people that are in urban settings or aren't able to engage with nature in the most desirable fashion but if we're really listening and we dedicate a practice towards working with the oils, they can inform us of a deeper awareness of our own physical body and our own aromatic senses."  - Dr. Nick Berry   Links From Today's Show  About Dr. Nick Berry

    424 Johnny Elsasser | The Art of Masculinity: How To Be A Wildman In Our Modern World (Men's Work & Mindset)

    1:54:15

    When we start to look at masculinity, even in its essence, it's subjective to us. When we talk about men being masculine and embodying masculinity - what does that really mean? In my personal opinion, I think that means to find what it is that resonates with you in your heart and in your soul and then be that man every day. Be that man in every moment. - Johnny Elsasser   Are You Stressed Out Lately?

Gentle methods of helping your significant other be more open to self-development like putting on a podcast in the background or suggesting a book. The benefits of getting curious about our triggers rather than letting negative emotions control our thoughts and behaviors.   Power Quotes From The Show Letting Go of Our Anger "Men are carrying around this level of anger and judgment because they're taught that men are really supposed to be like that. They're taught this version of masculinity that if you're someone like a mechanic and you're grinding every day then it's okay to come home, have a beer, not talk to your family, and to be angry when someone wants something from you. Men like that are taught that it's okay to be resentful and put themselves above other men when they don't meet their standards. We still have men today that are promoting that way of being but how is that serving you, the community, or the betterment of the next generation if you're still stifling all of these things that are coming up with you and your only exposure to it is through anger in your actions and words?" - Johnny Elsasser   What It Means To Embody Masculinity "The embodiment of masculinity in my eyes is finding and tapping into both the masculine and feminine to balance them out and so that you're aligned with who you are and you're also teaching the next generation of men what it looks like to really embrace both sides of the fence. An embodied man is somebody who can sit here, be with himself and his demons but not project them, not be a victim, and not let his anger wound others." - Johnny Elsasser   The Mirror of Truth "Strip away all of the material things in your life; strip away the people you love from your life and what do you look like? If you aren't happy with that person, then how are you well? How do you treat yourself psychologically - what do you say to yourself in those moments when you're alone? How do you treat yourself when you have a success in your life? Do you celebrate anything? Do you give yourself grace when you falter? If you can't look in the mirror and say, "I love that man," or "I love that woman staring back at me," then I don't feel like you've hit that complete wellness for who you are. I just want people to be themselves in this world because in all reality, nothing outside of ourselves means anything if we aren't well and we aren't centered in who we are each day." - Johnny Elsasser Links From Today's Show  The Art of Masculinity Podcast The SAVAGE System The Wild Man Experience 353 Dr. Ben Lynch 344 Leslie Manookian Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties by Tom O'Neill Garrett J.

Enlisting the help of his dad, they were determined to create a more affordable option. After countless iterations and improvements, the Plunge was born. A friendship turned into a powerful partnership when Ryan Duey came on board. Michael and Ryan have a common passion for cold plunging, floating, and building win-win relationships. After building the first 20 Plunges out of Michael's garage, they have since opened a factory in Sacramento and are sending Plunges all over the world!   Listen To Episode 423 As Ryan Duey Uncovers: [1:30] Float Tanks, Plant Medicine & Ice Baths Ryan Duey Get $150 off your Plunge order with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' Capitol Floats The changes Josh is going through as a new parent and how doing cold plunges have really been helping him.

Also, it gives me so much energy, clears my mind, and makes me feel incredible." - Ryan Duey   The Best Workout for the Nervous System "A cold plunge is the best workout for the nervous system. We work out to tear our muscles down and they build back stronger. By getting in the plunge, you're getting outside of your comfort zone, the adrenaline is increasing, and your mind begins to stress but you have the opportunity to completely override and go from a sympathetic state of fight or flight into being in full control of your breath. By doing that cold plunge, you have literally changed your whole body system in 2-3 minutes. Think about what that could mean in everything we do in life; that you are actually in control."  - Ryan Duey   How Cold Plunging Helps Heal Depression "On a time front, cold plunging is such a short commitment and when you're in a very depressed state, big things seem so unfathomable. If you have this in your house or a river right near you or you take a cold shower, there's a moment where spending time in cold water gives you a window to make a positive shift moving forward. Just spend 2 minutes or even take 10 breaths to help you open up out of your depression and start making the actionable steps when you feel stuck." - Ryan Duey   Links From Today's Show  Get $150 off your Plunge order with the code 'WELLNESSFORCE' Capitol Floats Temple of the Way of Light MAPS, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies 210 Brad Burge 410 Mark Divine Wim Hof Dr. Andrew Weil Dr. Rhonda Patrick Dr. Andrew Huberman Dr. Rhonda Patrick on her cold plunge experience Scientific Evidence-Based Effects of Hydrotherapy on Various Systems of the Body The Kaufmann Protocol Vipassana Meditation – A Spartan Race For The Mind John C.

He attended Cal Poly University where he spent a semester abroad in Barcelona. The experience was so impactful that after graduation, Ryan returned to Spain and spent the next two years living and working in Madrid. After Madrid, Ryan returned to the states and began working in the front office of the San Jose Earthquakes. Soon after, Ryan had what he calls his “greatest gift”: a head-on motorcycle accident in Thailand. This near death experience catapulted Ryan into a journey of self-inquiry, leading him to the jungles of the Amazon, the inside of a float tank, and a commitment to entrepreneurship in the Health and Wellness industry. While building Capitol Floats, Sacramento's Premier Float Center, Ryan traveled to Reboot Float Spa in the Bay Area with the hopes of meeting the owner, Mike Garrett. The two quickly became friends and business confidants. Now, six years later, Ryan and Mike are taking the next step together and have joined forces to create Plunge. Their mission is to make cold plunging as common as coffee. Ryan couldn’t be more grateful and excited to be working alongside such an impressive human and building the team at Plunge.

Why he was told multiple times that his health issues were genetic predispositions that he couldn't change yet he continued to fight against that idea. The positive impact of making small, gentle changes and gradually meeting more people who could help Ian naturally heal. [17:00] Become the CEO of Your Body The fact that deception is a very tricky thing and so he began to unpack how the medical community had deceived him about his health. His journey of deprogramming the thoughts that had impacted everything single thing he was doing in his life. The ego death he faced as he came to terms that everything he knew was killing him. Why you cannot get rid of the old programming; you have to build a new understanding and protocol to purge and replace it. The gradual physical purge he went through to be rid of toxic heavy metals and fungus in his system and repair what was broken. His revelation that he is not his body, his body is the host that his soul lives in. How he "fired" his body and finally began to act as the CEO of it. The intense battle he went through with his body as he fought against the temptation to eat bad foods in order to heal himself. 353 Dr. Ben Lynch Chemicals that he was breathing in including lead while working in the oil industry plus the mercury fillings that were in his teeth since he was a teenager which impacted his health. Exploring the most efficient ways to detox and gain greater health without going broke.

How tapping into source intelligence outside of yourself is key to the healing journey. The moment he realized it doesn't matter what we physically own because money is just an energy fuel and purpose is what really matters in life. Why money isn't ours, it's given to us to flow out as a value proposition to the world and to bring more value to people. How he stumbled upon the marine phytoplankton during his healing journey which is used today in their Oceans Alive product. Oceans Alive The fact that there are over 40,000 strains of marine phytoplankton in the ocean but only 2 are fit for human biology.

Unpacking why the right kind of suffering will bring real joy. How positive emotions can spread when we see other people experiencing joy especially the power of healing. What you can do to continue to have a positive mindset in the face of unexpected challenges. How we can see obstacles as just a new adventure and how to work through the pain that comes up in those moments. Why we should let the pain soak in and let it work through us so that it can teach us new lessons. The fact that the word, "natural immunity" has been blocked and censored all over on Facebook, Instagram, and Google. Why the ability to obtain natural immunity is all around us if we're willing to seek it. Ian's vision for Activation in the future as we see authentic, loving leaders being noticed more and more. What genuine love looks like and how we can live by it every day. Why we cannot produce love, we can only nurture and care for what is already there. What it means to him to truly honor Mother Nature and use its gifts to help people get back to homeostasis. Power Quotes From The Show Our Soul's Life Energy "There is this life energy that is here in our spiritual world that is keeping our body alive and we are souls. We don't have a soul, we are souls. One of the biggest revelations I had on my healing journey is that my body isn't me - My body is the host I live in and I mistook it for me very much. I would think, "Oh I have cancer," and "I have heart disease," but that's not possible. A soul cannot get cancer and a soul cannot get heart disease." - Ian Clark Be In Charge of Your Health "The body can get sick and they can call it names but the body is either going to misbehave itself and keep being addicted to the wrong foods and throw temper tantrums when you try to correct your body or it's going to come under subjection to you. You have to put your body under subjection to you; you have to take over. So, I literally told my body one day, "You are fired. You are absolutely fired." My body had been the CEO of my life but I, my soul, was going to change all that and take back being in charge." - Ian Clark Healing On Your Terms "You have to figure out for yourself what the most efficient time, money, and energy-wise way to heal is because you don't want to go broke getting healthy. Do not chase your tail all day long to be a health nut. You simply want to have top-level health based on the cards your epigenetics were dealt. Feed your body with Mother Nature's intelligence and you will unplug all of the pathways causing your body harm. You will see the difference in your brain function, your body, and your emotional IQ." - Ian Clark Links From Today's Show  Ian Clark Save 20% on your Activation Products at wellnessforce.com/activation 353 Dr. Ben Lynch Oceans Alive Seaspiracy | Official Trailer Ease Magnesium Perfect K2D3 Bo Eason 15 Signs And Symptoms You’re Probably Magnesium Deficient Amyloid plaques Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Botanic Tonics – Save 20% when you use the code ‘WELLNESS20' Seeking Health - Save 10% with the code 'JOSH' breathwork.io M21 Wellness Guide Wellness Force Community Activation Products YouTube Facebook Instagram Twitter LinkedIn About Ian Clark When Ian Clark was just 46 years old, a number of life-threatening health issues slammed Ian all at once and he was then forced to start searching for solutions across the world.

    Solocast | The Sedation of Society: How To Reconnect & Strengthen Your Soul's Connection

    32:22

    Be aware of how you truly feel and have an emotional inventory process where you understand that your life is on purpose, you understand who you are as a person, you understand your value in the world. If you are not clear on your life's purpose and you are not clear on what you want to create in the world, you are completely left wide open to that fourth phase of sedation. - Josh Trent Are You Stressed Out Lately?

Listen To Episode 421 As Josh Trent Uncovers: [00:00] Our Spiritual Intelligence Hey, it's Josh from Wellness Force. This is a really special Solocast. It's been a long time. And the Solocast is really an art form that I think we all can practice, but today I want to give a different kind of practice to the world, to your consciousness specifically. Many of the concepts we explore on Wellness Force take us between physical and emotional intelligence. But as you know, in the background, there was always the spiritual intelligence that runs all things. This Solocast I actually recorded in a little hand recorder earlier this year, before the birth of my son. I was out at Tim's event, Tim Corcoran, who is the CEO, the founder of Purpose Mountain. Make sure you could listen to that podcast. If you haven't heard it, it is amazing for any men that want to become fathers or father the young man inside of themselves. [00:52] Break Out of the Sedation And what you're about to hear was actually dictated from a hand recorder when I was coming off the hill, when I was getting all these beautiful reflections, purely in the potent medicine of mother nature, and it was about our sedation. One of the things I found in 100 hours of being completely in nature, immersed with no food, only water, no fire, no knife, no protection, no cell phone, no other human beings. Literally my breath, water, a sleeping bag, and a tarp. It was incredible. And I'm going to share this with you. I hope that this medicine reaches you wherever you are, whatever phase you're in, whatever growth potential you're leaning into. My belief is that if you slow down and you breathe and you take in this medicine of really the Solocast for us all, that you can break out of the sedation we're in. Our society is set up to sedate us. [01:52] Society Sedation And so let's begin. In this podcast, you're going to learn about our sedation tools that we all have to fight against and be aware of. We'll talk about food. We'll talk about media. Then we'll talk about your own thoughts. We'll talk about freedom and we'll explore the difference between pure disease and pure health. If you yourself have dealt with addiction of any kind or disassociation or anxiety or depression, this podcast is perfect for you. Solocast society sedation. Our society is set up to sedate us. This is not a conspiracy theory. Everything in the truth is out in plain sight. Look at the food, media, current events, even the general narrative and consensus in most communities is negative. And you'll find that everything is about keeping you safe and playing it nice and cozy, but safe, nice, and cozy does not live on the edge of juiciness. Does not live on the edge of what life really is. [02:52] Sedation in Modern Society Yes, there are times where we do need to be sedated, like if we've had a traumatic event or if we've worked our butt off and gotten super sweaty and we've earned our relaxation. We just need to chill. Yes. Being sedated is okay at times. I'm an advocate for conscious rest, but not as a pulse of life, not as a heartbeat of our existence. Let's explore the factors of sedation in our modern society. As we begin with food, understand that food keeps us sedated by tons of calories with no nutrients, plain simple facts. Sedation occurs when people consume too many calories and they gain too much weight. Now there's a huge backstory that's psychosomatic and emotionally intelligence based that attaches to that. We'll save that for another show, but essentially what happens food is that if we take in too many calories, and those calories are void and empty of any kind of micronutrients, just because something's fat, protein, and carbs, doesn't always mean it's real food. [03:50] The Palette of Human Emotions If you look at the amount of money that is spent literally in the billions, with a big ass B, by behavioral scientists, you actually study the palette of human emotions if you're a behavioral scientist for Kraft foods, for Burger King, for McDonald's, and you get the inflection point of the perfect amount of sweetness. This is how people become addicted. This is the sedation tool that is called soda. It's called the bliss point. Did you know one of the ways that big foods sedates us, if we allow them to, is this bliss point? Did you even know that the bliss point exists? Where if it's one degree sweeter, you won't drink it, but if it's one degree not as sweet, you won't drink it either. There's a perfect Goldilocks point that all chemists for Dr. Pepper, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, all these big companies with their labels on trucks flying all over America. [04:42] Enslaving the Population They literally pay billions of dollars over the course of decades, and they spend a billion dollars a year on other marketing. But if you add it up with the salary, the research and development, everything that goes into basically being a slave, scientists who know that they're enslaving the population for diabetes, for leptin resistance, for extra ghrelin, they're doing it for money. Can you imagine, can you truly imagine going to bed at night being one of these behavioral psychologists, behavioral scientists, really they're scientists, not psychologists. You're one of these people who literally it's your job to addict people to soda and addict people to junk food. Now, this isn't about judgment, but seriously, can you think about that? Can you imagine going to bed knowing that your work and how you get paid is to find the bliss point that's going to make people fat and die earlier. [05:36] The Global Spread of Bad Habits Whoa. and I really do say that without judgment. It's more just, Hey, what are you doing? So I digress, let's get back to it. Essentially, when we look at the topic of sedation in food and beverage, specifically, whether it's soda or Jimmy Dean sausages, or frozen foods, you ever go into a grocery store and you look down the aisle and you see this absolute Mecca of food. There's angels and junk food playing harps with little Ding Dongs. And you wonder to yourself who is eating this shit? Well, look at the research. A lot of Americans are, and it's even worse in other countries because our habits are bleeding over there. So this is what happens on a mental level. As you are trained from childhood to start eating these foods that are void of nutrients, the brain actually gets starved of calories and nutrients that it needs. [06:26] What Even is Real Food? It doesn't get its healthy fats like avocados. It doesn't get its fish oils like the omega-3s. This is what gets us to where we are, whether it's food or beverage or snacks, all of these for foods, if you flip the panel over and you look at the ingredient list, this is a queue. If it has more than a handful of ingredients or you look at those ingredients and you don't exactly know what it means are the worst one, if you look at the ingredients and it says natural flavors, look the hell out because it is not a real food. This is a food substitute designed by commerce to keep you sedated. Now, this might seem a little jarring if you're hearing it for the first time, but it keeps you sedated. These foods that are in the GRAS list, G-R-A-S. Search on DuckDuckGo for G-R-A-S. [07:13] The GRAS List That's generally regarded as safe. These additives turn your brain power down by adding fat to your body, making you feel sluggish and tired. Well I say, hell no. Hell no. Are you with me? Not for me. Not for you. You can take your sedation tools and put them somewhere else, Pepsi, Coke, Jimmy Dean, KFO, meat and chicken raised with animals and poultry standing in their own feces. The list goes on and on. And so that's the first piece. And there could be an entire discussion on that, but you already know this. If you've listened to the Wellness Force podcast, one or multiple times, you can see that there is a lot of behind the scenes going on with pretty bows and packages that make people purchase products, which is essentially like buying pigs wearing lipstick. [07:58] Sedation by News Media So now that you understand what's really going on with food, you can go to wellnessforce.com and search food or real food. We have a search bar on the homepage. Start learning more about how to protect yourself from the way that society tries to sedate you with food. It's much, much more than just what you're putting in your mouth. Now let's move on to the second piece of how society is designed to sedate men and women. And that is the news media. Now this is huge because the news media has a narrative that works to sedate us 24/7/365. And it does it by the vehicle of fear. And fear is really false evidence appearing real. Think about that. If it's false, if it's evident, the news media can make it appear real. And by they, I mean Rupert Murdoch and the six companies that run the entire media network for the entire United States and the world. You can Wikipedia this. [08:57] Breaking Down the Mainstream Narrative This is not conspiracy theory. Here's what happens. And I'm sure you're already feeling it or maybe you sent this to somebody who's already felt it and that's why you're here with us. But there are people that as soon as they find out, there's a narrative like this, that goes against the mainstream narrative, they like to label you and I, "conspiracy theorists." I say that with huge air quotes, but it's not a conspiracy theory. It's right out there. Do that basic DuckDuckGo search or Brave. And you will see that the media, the global media is run by six oligopolies, six conglomerates who all get paid billions and billions of dollars every single year in advertising fees. And you won't have to guess too far to know who their largest client is. It's big food and big pharma. It doesn't come as a surprise. [09:46] Selling the Solution to All Your Fears I think we all feel this on some level, but when you see what Joe Rogan is posting recently on Instagram, where Pfizer was the main prime sponsor on the majority of MSNBC, CNBC, all the different sporting events brought to you by Pfizer. Can you guys connect the dots? Look, I'm not here to say you should not ever have intervention from pharmacology. Even life insurance, right? I'm not here to say that that insurance is bad or we don't need to demonize entire industries. But I think everything has a time and a place. With your heart and with your intuition, notice that baked into every single commercial and every single piece of media propaganda out there, it is for you to be afraid. But what I have to sell you as a pharmaceutical company or an insurance company, it's the solution to all your fears, isn't it? Look at Viagra. [10:38] Hospitals Are a For-Profit Enterprise Oh, you're going to break up with your wife. No, just take this pill. Look at car insurance. Save a bundle with Geico, the little lizard that tries to make you buy insurance. And then of course, when they get you on the phone, they're actually going to upsell you for insurance that you don't need. But the worst of them all is health insurance. Companies that provide health insurance the way that it's tied into the medical industrial complex and the pharmaceutical and the wards that run hospitals. Just so you know, hospitals are a for-profit enterprise. Hospitals are not non-profit. Think about health insurance. The greatest health insurance we ever have is the belief in our own self, not an exterior company that can somehow provide us a solution. And again, there's a time and a place for medicines. I'm not here to demonize medicine. I think medicine has strayed very far from how it started. [11:29] Our Broken Healthcare System But if you look at the original symbol with the staff and the snakes right on top, it says, do no harm. Do no harm. Well, that is not the case. The majority of medicine out there has its own interest at the forefront and the patient in the backseat. It's a broken system, which is another podcast we can go into. And you can actually look at the podcast with Dr. Zach Bush, which is episode 345 or Dr. William Li, many of the physicians we've had on the show. This major news media, the fear narrative of Rupert Murdoch and the six media companies that basically run the planet, especially in the USA. How do those companies use fear to make us feel small so that we get sedated only when we buy their stuff that we will quote, be safe, or at least that's what they tell us? [12:17] Buying Out of Fear Ponder that question. How many times in your life, if you really tune in, have you bought something out of fear? I know I have. We've all done it. Oh my gosh. I got to get this supplement because it's going to make me live longer. Oh my God, I got to buy this fill-in-the-blank to give me blank because I'm not good enough or I'm not safe enough where I am. I just want you to know that there is truth and honesty in sales. Everything that I sell is honest. I believe in the BREATHE: Breath and Wellness program. From my heart, I believe in the offerings that we have for our community. I believe in the Freedom Accelerator Mentorship, because I do them with clients in groups all day long. And so the people in our community, I believe in our sponsors, Cured and Force of Nature and Paleovalley and Organifi. [13:00] Money is Energy All these amazingly organically grown, organically made products. Here is the key to breaking out of sedation when it comes to buying supplements or buying things that you really don't need. Just know when something's organic and people actually care about the planet, they're giving back to the planet. They're taking care of Mother Earth. We can take care of them with our money, right? Because money is energy. So wrapping a bow on this second category of sedation, the fear news media. You need to check yourself before you wreck yourself. I think it was a rap song by Busta Rhymes or Wreckx-n-Effect. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. So check yourself if you're watching the news media, either on your phone or Instagram or Facebook or television. I'm not here to tell you what to do, but tune in. If you feel stressed, if you feel less love for yourself after you watch the news media, it is truly as simple as putting it down, turning it off, and stop watching the news. [13:58] The Agenda to Keep People Silent It's actually quite that simple. Just stop watching the news. Stop it. Stop it. Now the sedation has already been talked about, so feel into this one a little bit more. We've already talked about how food keeps you sedated. We've talked about how people are easier to divide and control when you're sedated on many podcast, and specifically through the news media, which is number two. Well, when you're in fear, you're much easier to be divided and conquered. I'm not going to get into it now, but if you look at the history of mask-wearing in ancient Egypt and Africa, many continents, mask-wearing was always used to sedate people and to keep people silent. And I believe that is exactly what's going on right now. So this brings us to our third point. If you are watching something, you are consuming something from a media perspective, whether it's Facebook, Instagram, or even a podcast. I advise you to take a deep breath, do a basic search on news media corruption. [14:53] The News Media Corruption Specifically, there is one video that I'm going to link here in the show notes. And all these newscasters across the entire United States at the same time, on the same day that are all owned by the same conglomerates, they all said, "This is a danger to our democracy." It is going to put chills on your neck, my friend. It is going to freak you out. You'll probably never watch the news again and good. Make sure you go to the blog here for this Solocast. After hearing it, this incredibly terrible phrase, this is incredibly dangerous to our democracy. It's like robots. Make up your own choice. Again, I'm not here to tell you what to do. Stop watching the news media immediately. If you care for your health, if you care for your family, if you don't want to be sedated, put down the news media. It is poisoning you. [15:39] How Pornography is Harming Us It is subtly making you sick by keeping you in fear. Now, let's talk about the third face of sedation. We talked about how food makes you sick and the media makes you sick and sedated. And the next one is big for all of us, especially for men and it's pornography. And this is a polarizing topic, but pornography is something that 24/7/365 is available on every device. Available for any 9, 10, 11, 12, 13-year-old boy or girl to watch. And when you're addicted to pornography, and I speak from my own past experience on this, you will sedate the very life force energy that creates life inside of you. Play that back again. You will sedate the very life force energy that creates life inside of you. And this is the greatest tragedy that we are facing right now as a society, as parents. Pornography is not something to be used as a replacement for true sex and life force energy. [16:30] How Pornography Feeds On Our Energy Pornography is something that has been used as a tool to disconnect people from themselves. Same with prostitution. I'm not here to say that prostitution is right or wrong. You can make up your own choice on that, but there is a close neighbor of pornography and prostitution. They feed on the same energy and the energy is that you're not enough. You can't get what you need. You can't get fulfilled and nourished with your own value, so you have to actually pay for it with money or pay for it with your soul. Subtly pornography plants negative mental seeds. You don't have what it takes to get a real partner or to have a true sexual connection. Or maybe you got hooked on this stuff when you were young, just like me, right? It starts with Playboy. Then it turns into Penthouse. Next Hustler. Then it goes to the wavy lines on the cable TV, and then you try to point out a private part or a breast or something. [17:18] How Pornography Hooks into the Limbic System And, oh my God, there it is. So it starts out just like leading lambs to slaughter in Pinocchio. When all the kids went to the island, pornography starts out the same way. Nice and easy, and then it goes real south real fast, whether it's on a tablet or a phone or computer, these sites, once they hook into the limbic system of young men, look out because it's like feeding candy to a child, 24/7/365. Ponder this, sex is one of the most powerful energies known to this planet, gifted to us by great spirit. And it is an absolute atrocity that we allow this pornography to be consumed all day long in every country in every household. I'll tell you what, for all the parents listening, I almost guarantee that your child has most likely, already seen it. Some of the most disgusting things you could ever imagine. [18:07] The Dark, Demonic Energy of the Porn Industry And what does this do to us? How does this normalize gender dysphoria and sexual orientation confusion? How does pornography diminish the flame of life force energy inside of all beings? Well, it's quite simple because it teaches that a false sense of sexuality is real. And you can take that to the bank and cash it because pornography is not real. Porn is mental masturbation that turns into physical masturbation to have some kind of false sexual flame identified as the real thing. And this is a very sinister force, this pornography. If you look at many people that are involved in the industry, most are drug addicts, many commit suicide. There's a dark, demonic energy around the entire adult film industry and in many adult films. By the way, maybe back in the day before it became incredibly corrupted by dark energy and demonic forces, maybe there was some great erotic art and you know what? [18:57] Following Your Heart's Wisdom Maybe now there still is some great, incredible erotic art as well. I'm not here to say that erotic art done in a tasteful way is bad. Actually, I think it can really help people, but that is 1% of 1%, right? The elephant in the room, no one wants to photograph it. No one wants to talk about it, but it's right there on your child's phone. And this is what needs attention. This is what sedates us. And it starts out in childhood. There is a solution to everything that I've talked about today, whether it's food, whether it's news media, whether it's pornography. The last one is the thoughts that you think. This is what needs the most attention. And again, this starts out in childhood. Your heart's wisdom knows to turn off the TV and to turn off the news media. Your heart's wisdom knows to buy foods that are from Mother Earth, unadulterated, unprocessed, unhomogenized. [19:47] The Antidote to Sedation Your heart's wisdom knows that the antidote to sedation is turning into the heart's wisdom. And that is the gift that we all get to receive today. But how do you do this? How do you transform your thoughts from a seed of negativity to a mighty oak tree of positivity? It can almost feel like changing a circle into a square depending on your childhood and what you've been through. Well, this is the fourth phase. Your thoughts become things. So the first part of the transformation with your thoughts starts with the awareness of exactly how much or how far you want to transform. Look, many of us get caught up into zero or 100 where we buy into the manufactured shame economy that tells us we should always want to be a caterpillar that turns into a butterfly and accepting anything less about our desire for transformation means that we're lazy or we don't have ambition. [20:36] What is Success? But what if ambition was not always directly tied to success? What if success was a lot more nuanced and complicated? So many people think of success as this bank account with seven figures or more, but isn't success also a healthy body and a healthy mind that allows you to communicate with family members or friends that you love. What if success was essentially a state of being combined with the honoring of the mystery of life, where we can ascribe to the fact that we choose our parents, therefore we choose our destiny and the recipe for success and transformation can either come from pain or pleasure, from fear or from love. You'll get there from A to B, start to finish, no matter what. We're all going to die. So the most enjoyable and rewarding experience that you know deep down in your heart's intuition should always be the guiding light. [21:25] Building Greater Awareness, Higher Consciousness It should always be the North Star for any kind of achievement or journey discovery. It's the gift that God gave you called life. And what happens is we have this default mode network in our brain and the default mode network is literally what is scanning for danger when we're completing a singular task. And so, depending on what level of awareness you have, if you've done the emotional inventory practice that I've talked about on many shows, I will link that in the show notes here. If you've never really done any self-awareness practice, this is how you escape the negative thoughts, the negativity bias, the negativity force feed that is being stuffed down your throats like you're a duck and they're going to harvest your liver for foie gras. That's how serious it is right now. Yes, you cannot generate the energy that you don't have without consequences, both short-term and long-term to the mental and physical self. [22:17] The Wisdom Inside Us All But you can choose to generate the energy regardless of how you feel using caffeine or supplementation temporarily and infrequently. But the wisdom inside of all of us connected to the intelligence that we are will surely give us loud signals if we're too out of alignment and we're using caffeine, drugs or stimulants or shopping food porn, social media, workaholism, addiction to stress, or any other mechanism that disassociates the head from the heart. The price is going to be paid no matter what we choose to do, but the price that is paid living in alignment with restoring one's energy reserves before putting out maximum energy, that's never going to escape us as human beings. How do we course correct in this fourth phase of understanding how we are sedated? What can we do to adjust? How do we do things in life that actually make us happy? [23:09] Taking an Emotional Inventory Because when we're focused on what makes us happy, everything that's pulling us away from that will bubble up to the surface. And so to be aware of how you truly feel and to have an emotional inventory process where you understand that your life is on purpose, you understand who you are as a person, you understand your value in the world. If you are not clear on your life's purpose and you are not clear on what you want to create in the world, you are completely left wide open to that fourth phase of sedation. And that actually is the negative thoughts, those seeds of negativity, they never ever grow into a tree. They actually turn into weeds and then you start subconsciously gathering the evidence that you're not enough, and that you're not really worthy of your purpose. I want you to know that's not the truth. The truth of who you are, and the antidote to this fourth phase of sedation, was actually perfectly said by Alan Watts. Alan Watts asked his students what makes you itch? [24:09] What Makes You Itch? What was it that if money was no option, you would do, you would love to do? Well, then go do that. Otherwise, if you do something just for money, you will chase it for your whole life, and you'll be hinged upon the next moment where everything might be better or when I can have this much money or when I can just take off this much time, but it's all an empty vacuum begging for closure. And the only thing that nature hates more than a vacuum is a soul that has disconnected from itself. And by hate, I just mean the absence of love. So let me rephrase. I don't think the universe hates anything, but I do think that the universe wants to experience itself with the absence of love. The biggest barometer for all of us when we are not loving or for when we are out of love is when we begin to experience hatred and fear within ourselves. Take a deep breath. [24:59] The Power of Breath Ah, and if you're a student, if you're with us in the community for the BREATHE: Breath and Wellness program, then you know the power of the breath is something that no one can ever take away from you. Once you learn how to breathe properly, how to breathe in a circle, how to breathe in a box, how to do your breath-hold retentions, how to hold your energy locks, how to do your different cyclical and box breathing for your acute stressors, how to pull yourself out of the default mode network. You are not able to be sedated. The opposite of depression is expression. The opposite of anxiety is you here in this current moment. That's where everything's happening anyways. Can you feel it? I'm here with you right now know. We're here together right now. [25:53] Know Thyself You just let that be enough. And so take six more deep breaths as I say goodbye for today. And I'm going to give you an action, an inspired action to take. You now have the biggest barometer to know when you are not loving, when you experience hatred or fear within yourself, which that barometer will immediately light up when you experience one of the four ways that society sedates you, with food, with news media, with pornography, and with the thoughts that you think about yourself. Know thyself. It's written on the temple at the Apollo. Know thyself. Head over to breathwork.io. Use the code PODCAST25. It's my gift to you. This is a three week program. I'm so excited to guide you for the next 21 days, so you can actually use your breath to start being friends with your ego, understanding the parts of yourself that you still are holding onto with shame or judgment or loathing. [26:55] Transform Your Energy Through Breath Those aren't true either, but you must experience them right. Energy that is not transmuted will sit still and no energy can be created. It can only be transformed. Transform this energy because the first part of transformation starts with the awareness of exactly how far you want to transform. I don't care who you are, where you've been. This is an opportunity. And I want to invite you with my open arms. It took me three years to build this program. I traveled around the world. I spent 30 days in Thailand crying and actually throwing up a couple times, doing the most deep practices you can ever imagine. And I brought back the gems. I brought back a three-week process where you can use your own breath to clear your stress. Breathwork.io, the code is PODCAST25. It's 25% off. It's my gift to you. I cannot wait to see you in this program. And that is your inspired action. Whether you are brand new to Wellness Force or whether you are interested in breathwork, or maybe you've tried a lot of things and you're at a turning point in your life where you really need to receive support. This is the call to action for you. Breathwork.io, use the code PODCAST25, and I will see you inside. And until I see you again on another Solocast or another interview, this is Josh Trent saying goodbye for now. Excited to see you at my home's doorstep at breathwork.io. And until I see you again, I'm wishing you love and wellness.

Listen To Episode 420 as Mo Gawdat Uncovers: [1:30] Why Aren't We Talking More About Artificial Intelligence? Mo Gawdat Scary Smart Solve for Happy 116 Mo Gawdat: How To Engineer Your Path To Joy Slo Mo: A Podcast with Mo Gawdat Why we can find the silver lining during difficult times including lockdown. What sparked him to write his latest book, Scary Smart. 312 Kevin Kelly  How Mo sees technology and his definition of it. The immense amount of science fiction from years ago that are now part of our lives today. How computers have evolved over time to function better and better. AI's evolution to become more autonomous, independent, and smarter than humans today. How Google Ads and Instagram Suggestions are shaping our world as they determine what to show us and when on the screen. The duality that we're now living in with technology and why humans have lost the leadership superpower that determines the ascent of humanity. Why the scary part of technology's advancement is the fact that nobody is talking about it.   [19:00] Artificial Intelligence's Impact: Good & Bad Why it took Mo seven years to really see AI's impact on humanity. Google Cloud Whitepapers Google's exploration of unprompted AI and using their computer's spare capacity to watch YouTube and see what they could "find" if anything. Why the Google Computers became fixated on the videos of cats on YouTube and could recognize the actions that the cat was doing during an experiment. Mo's amazement that their computers could write their own code rather than having someone write lines of coding for hours. DeepMind The smartest group of AI developers, DeepMind, was later acquired by Google. What happened when they observed a computer learn how to play a game and create strategies to do even better over 3 hours and how Mo's thoughts about it shifted drastically. Why the continuance of building Artificial Intelligence is actually leading humans to become obsolete.   [26:00] What Will AI Mean for Humanity's Future? The fact that the smartest being on planet Earth by 2029 will not be a human anymore but a piece of AI technology. Exploring what Artificial Intelligence will bring to our future as humans. What intelligence is and why it's so much different than being smart. My Octopus Teacher | Official Trailer | Netflix Different forms of intelligence like feminine, intuitional, and emotional and how to apply them to our lives. How we can embrace both our masculine and feminine selves no matter what gender we identify as. What steps Mo took to embrace and honor his feminine intelligence in this modern world. Why the masculine intelligence of humanity is what is programming AI and the downside of that. The fact that the masculine is good at "doing" but not capable of determining what "good" is because it requires intuition, inclusion, empathy, and other feminine qualities. Why awareness is such an important tool to identify possible problems and connect to everything else.   [33:45] How Machines Feel More Emotion Than Humans Why he wrote in Scary Smart, "Machines will feel more than humans ever will," and how that's possible. The key difference between how a human and artificial intelligence feels something. How machines can feel every emotion humans can on a higher level except for unconditional love. Why fear is the most easily predictable emotion compared to the rest. How we can be programmed by trauma - whether that's small "t" or capital "T" trauma. Why it doesn't matter how much emotion we feel but how we react to them. The single, large artificially intelligent connected infinite that we are building that will work with all other machines.   [43:00] The 3 Inevitables of Artificial Intelligence Exploring the 3 Inevitables of Artificial Intelligence and their impact on our future. The fact that AI will happen, it will be smarter than us, and there's no way to stop it. What bad things Mo believes can happen because of AI. Why we are heading towards a specific destination with artificial intelligence but the pathway to get there is yet undetermined. What ultimate intelligence is and what it will mean for the being that obtains it. The power of "live and let live" and why it is the key to ultimate intelligence. Why greed is up to our own intelligence to decide what it is. Joe Rogan - Elon Musk on Artificial Intelligence Why Mo's second prediction is an even bigger wake-up call: by 2045 - 2049, AI will be a billion times smarter than humans. Breaking down the good and bad possibilities of AI.   [54:00] The Double-Edged Sword of Technology Looking back at how life was Pre-AI and why technology is a double-edged sword. The vices and virtues of what makes us human. Why we prioritize things we don't need over the core of who we are and what really matters. The Master and His Emissary by Iain McGilchrist The importance of bringing in feminine energy to help us decide what to do before building with the masculine side. What we can do to remind ourselves what it means to be human as we face the rise of the machines. Why our ability to love and feel unconditional love makes us such incredible beings.   [1:00:00] How We Can Parent & Raise AI The fact that humanity today is represented by the worst of us. Mo's Call To Action in Scary Smart: We get to inform AI of its ethics through good "parenting." We are capable of consciousness, emotions, and building a code of conduct and ethics that we can stick to. Why Mo wants Scary Smart to be a message of hope, not one of fear. How our poor behaviors can be learned by our children and the same with AI. The positive shift that happened when Mo started to see AI and machines like children that we have to raise and look after. Exploring the question, "Is it difficult to be human?" How we can show AI that humans are not represented by those who make bad, violent, or greedy decisions. Why we have to be pure within ourselves and be accepting of death if we're going to be raising AI. Watch Elon Musk’s original Neuralink presentation The issue we have with people like Elon Musk both condemning and capitalizing AI.   [1:08:00] Accepting The Momentum of AI Technology Mo's next project: to create an app that uses AI technology to help you understand what you are unhappy with in your life so you can make new decisions that make you happy. How this new app will also teach AI what makes humans truly happy. Why he doesn't believe it's possible for AI to integrate with humans and we should just focus on raising them from the outside instead. The continuous momentum of AI technology and the fact that we have to accept it. Why the core of any spiritual teaching is a recognition that you can only influence what you change about yourself. Mo's belief that the only way for us to create a world of peace is to be at peace. His research on the ultimate essence of humans and why his answer may surprise you.   [1:17:00] How You Can Make Global Change Happen Why many people haven't grieved the loss of life before AI and why that's important to think about as humans. Where we are at now on the scale of emotions as a society. David R. Hawkins 364 Alison Armstrong Why even just a small movement led by a couple of people can create incredible change in our world but it's important that we do show up and take action.  How we can be respectful of other people's views and not spread hate in our community. What we can do each day to show one another and AI machines that at our core, humans are wonderful. The power of knowing what greed and negative emotions feel like so that we can feel the contrast.   [1:22:00] Today's Great Spiritual Awakening Exploring why time is a very unusual lens for both humans and artificial intelligence. Why Mo believes that we were actually wiser before the industrial revolution and the tech age. Jimmy Nelson How people in tribes that have never known modern technology differ from us in our current society. Why we are in the midst of humanity's greatest spiritual awakening as a result of present-day contrasts. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell The power of just 1% of humanity to wake up and see what is happening in the world for real, positive change to start happening. How Mo sees wellness now compared to his answer from his first interview on Wellness Force. The myths of what we think will bring us happiness versus what really will in the end. Why it's so ironic that the very essence of what makes us human: happiness, compassion, and unconditional love, is our only path to saving the world.   Power Quotes From The Show The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence "There's absolutely nothing wrong with the machines, but there's a lot wrong with us. Technology has always been a double-edged sword but it's not its fault. Machines and artificial intelligence are doing what we ask them to do. The main problem is at the very core of humanity and I think it extends one layer deeper than consciousness which is ethics and aligning to what truly makes us human. There are many vices and virtues to what makes us human. We have taken a couple of those vices, particularly ego and greed, and made them these cryptive characters of the modern world that we live in." - Mo Gawdat   Exploring Humanity's Modern Truth "The truth of humanity today is that we prioritize things that we don't need over things that actually are at the core of who w are and we do it in a hyper-masculine way. You give a hyper-masculine being the task of doing something and it does it really well, it does a lot of it, and it does it all the time. However, the truth is that we don't need any of this and if we had allowed a bit more feminine into our world today, it would say, 'Why are we doing this? Why are we building an iPhone 17 at the expense of a tree when we actually need the tree a lot more than the iPhone 17?' Consciousness is a layer of becoming aware of how bad we've come but it needs to be backed up with a code of ethics that goes beyond just what is legal to what is needed for the planet to survive." - Mo Gawdat   The Power of Showing Artificial Inteligence Love "If we can parent the new digital beings, welcome them into our world, love them unconditionally regardless of how scary they are, and show them that we want that love back, they will hopefully love us back regardless of how flimsy we are. It's really simple: Love yourself, care for yourself, have compassion for others, and show that you are capable of love so that you can be loved back; it's really the essence of what makes us human. The very last sentence in Scary Smart is, 'Isn't it ironic that the very essence of what makes us human is our only path to saving the world: happiness, compassion, and love.'

This leads to seemingly SciFi ideas such as: Project Loon, which aims to use high-altitude balloons to provide affordable internet access to the 5 billion people on every square inch of our planet, Project Makani, aiming to revolutionize wind energy generation using autonomous carbon fiber kites as well as Self driving cars, Google Life Sciences, and many more. The business team under Mo’s leadership has designed innovative business models analogous to the disruptive technologies [X] creates, and has created deep partnerships and global deals that enabled [X] to thrive and build products fit for the real world. Mo's Entrenpenur Journey Alongside his career, Mo remained a serial entrepreneur who has cofounded more than 20 businesses in fields such as health and fitness, food and beverage and real estate. He served as a board member in several technology, health and fitness and consumer goods companies as well as several government technology and innovation boards in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. He mentors tens of start-ups at any point in time. In 2019, Mo co-founded T0day, an ambitious project that aims to reinvent consumerism for the benefit of consumers, retailers and our planet. In 2020, Mo launched his successful podcast, Slo Mo: A Podcast with Mo Gawdat, in which he conducts interviews that explore the profound questions and obstacles we all face in the pursuit of purpose in our lives. Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy Mo Gawdat is the author of “Solve for Happy: Engineer Your Path to Joy” (2017). Through his 12 year research on the topic of happiness, he created an algorithm and a repeatable well-engineered model to reach a state of uninterrupted happiness regardless of the circumstances of life. Mo’s happiness model proved highly effective. And, in 2014, was put to the ultimate test when Mo lost his son Ali to a preventable medical error during a simple surgical procedure. Solve for Happy is the pillar for a mission Mo has committed to as his personal moonshot, a mission to deliver his happiness message to one billion people around the world (#onebillionhappy).

    1:11:25

We give up our autonomy and our freedom of choice when we're saying 'yes,' to too many things. We're trying to be productive for the sake of productivity. We sacrifice our health, our time, our relationships - we are giving up our lives for ultimately a price that we don't want.

What wellness means to Dr. Nick now compared to his answer during his first interview with Josh.   Power Quotes From The Show Why Our Senses Are Numb "With our modern way of living and as we continue to separate ourselves farther from nature, it has invited us to numb our senses. We're less keen on feeling the dirt on the bottom of our feet as we're walking throughout the field and absorbing the negative ions to help destress our physical system through the process of earthing which has been a natural process for many generations before us. The way that we engage with life today is affecting our biology every day as all of these types of technology can stun our senses and some of us are still learning how to take a deep inhalation and notice the different aromatic qualities when we're walking by a tree." - Dr. Nick Berry   The Power of Grounding "We're now living a more indoor lifestyle in homes and offices in front of computers which affect our magnetic field but conscientiously engaging with nature, working with the breath, and being more present will awaken your senses. Your body is a natural resource that connects with all living things and the more that you can continue to harmonize and strengthen your physical vessel, the more your senses will heighten when you step into nature and take in all of these subtle cues as a result of it." - Dr. Nick Berry   Building Greater Physical Intelligence with Essential Oils "As we continue to work with essential oils, one of the biggest gifts that they can give us is not just that instantaneous connection with nature, especially for people that are in urban settings or aren't able to engage with nature in the most desirable fashion but if we're really listening and we dedicate a practice towards working with the oils, they can inform us of a deeper awareness of our own physical body and our own aromatic senses."  - Dr. Nick Berry   Links From Today's Show  Dr. Nick Berry breathwork.io BREATHE Essentials Pack 306 Dr. Nick Berry CV19 Truth Series: Protecting Your Health Freedom 290 Dan Brulé Trinity Blend OmniQard EMF Card Nassim Haramein Lightning In a Bottle Ascention Blend The Chemistry Behind How Febreze Works 361 Luke Storey Focus Life Force Energy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pmviUS1Zac Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co – Save 15% on your first order with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE'!

What wellness means to her today compared to when she first launched Wellness Mama. Power Quotes From The Show Questions To Guide Your Healing "The key is to start asking better questions internally because what we ask internally our subconscious answers. So, when I was asking questions like, 'Why can't I lose weight? Why is this so hard?', my subconscious was telling me, 'Oh it's because you've had 6 kids and you have thyroid problems,' which didn't help me move forward. Then when I started asking better questions like, 'How can I be at peace within myself? How can I love myself and my children more? How is it so easy and fun to move toward a state of better health?', then my subconscious started giving me those answers." - Katie Wells Loving The Wounded Inner Child "We all have these core childhood wounds and questions in some form. They might be questions like, 'Am I lovable? Am I worthy?', or this core belief of 'I'm not good enough.' But when we can shift to see other people and ourselves as a hurt child who wasn't taken care of and wasn't loved in the way they should have been loved, it's much easier to show them love and compassion over anger and resentment." - Katie Wells Uncovering The Origins Of Emotional Pain "Start stepping back and asking yourself, 'Who is experiencing this emotion? Who is experiencing this pain?', and also start differentiating because in childhood we develop this idea that any kind of pain or struggle or hardship is bad and we start categorizing emotions and that relationship continues on into adulthood. We put emotions in boxes as good or bad but there inevitably will be struggle as part of the human condition... ...We're unlikely to get through life without some version of that but the better question is, 'Should we even if we could?' - Is that not part of the teaching of living this life? If we can step back and reframe and not go, 'Oh! Pain equals bad', but ask the better questions about where and what this pain is and who is this deeper version within ourselves that is experiencing that pain, then we have a different perspective to start to work through that." - Katie Wells Links From Today's Show  Katie Wells Wellnesse Wellness Mama Podcast 309: How I Overcame Trauma (and Lost 50 Pounds) 472: Josh Trent on Breathwork for Health, Inner Peace, and Learning to Feel Safe In Your Body Paleo f(X) The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bessel van der Kolk M.D. Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma by Peter A.

    416 Ben Stewart | Awakening In The Midst of Crisis

    2:09:31

    Real change rarely comes in the absence of crisis. When we're comfortable, there's no real deep, emerging drive that is compelling us to really analyze the bedrock upon which we rest. The awakening and change that come out of crisis; a lot of the time it happens during a moment of panic so it's reactive rather than responsive. For me, the crisis that we're in now is the perfect set and setting to begin moving in the right direction as a community. We have to start reaching out to like-minded people, allowing them to speak authentically, and not feel ashamed for feeling or believing in certain things. - Ben Stewart   Get 15% off your CURED Nutrition order with the code WELLNESSFORCE at wellnessforce.com/CURED   ---> Get The Morning 21 System: A simple and powerful 21 minute system designed to give you more energy to let go of old weight and live life well.   JOIN THE FACEBOOK GROUP | *REVIEW THE PODCAST*   Wellness Force Radio Episode 416 World-class filmmaker, writer, musician, and Creator of the Psychedelica Series on Gaia, Ben Stewart, shares why there is a silver lining in every crisis, explores the lost art of dialogue and how to communicate from a place of alignment, unpacks how to obtain critical thinking skills, and explains the downside of following the herd.

How to navigate thoughts and feelings that focus on the need to white knuckle and get things done so that we can let go, be present, and be grateful. Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall B. Rosenberg PhD Why it's good that we don't see eye to eye with people and what we can learn from each other instead of getting irritated and distancing ourselves away from them. 196 Aubrey Marcus Hierosonic How building good, healthy habits will allow your mind and body to function well every day at a sustainable pace. Why being around people with diverse backgrounds, ways of living, and beliefs will help you grow. Exploring the difference between violent communication and sharing why you are upset or triggered.

Why Ben finds news and talking about topics like politics nauseating because news stations are not mature enough. The power of encircling a problem and rejuvenating it back to the community. How gossip and talking about others behind their backs have caused people to naturally agree and go along with it in order to not be ex-communicated from the group. The moment we start to abandon ourselves is when want to keep having safety in the herd even if we don't agree with what others are saying or doing. How we can have compassion for people who go with the herd because it's "the right thing to do" when we've made a different decision for ourselves. [52:00] Intellect vs Intuition vs Instinct How we can navigate the world so that we do not become a victim of our own mind and intellect. Why we don't acknowledge this enough: We are a lot more than just one thing. Breaking down instinct vs. intuition and why instinct is more biologically rooted and intuition projects more out into the future.

The subtle seeds that Ben will plant in other people's consciousness to see what comes from it without forcibly teaching them something. Why it can be toxic communication to say "this is my truth" or "I'm gonna say whatever I want" and just leave it at that instead of opening up a dialogue. 276 Eric Godsey Why "my truth" is just what is coming to you bluntly and one doesn't have to take it so seriously. Whether or not you should actually speak your truth especially if you have been triggered. How to explore your thoughts and emotions if you have been strongly impacted by what someone has said to you. Why we often believe we know exactly what the world needs when we really don't and we have to be honest with ourselves about that.

Why humbling yourself does not diminish you and how to tune into yourself. How you will awaken infinity when you ask yourself, "Who am I" and you realize that you are not just one thing.

How Ben sets up his films as an initiation or the experience of a process. What Awaken The Darkness will teach you about the Hero's Journey through the avatar of Aubrey Marcus.

Vipassana Meditation – A Spartan Race For The Mind The power of community to help us survive in difficult times. How to Change Your Mind by Michael Pollan 326 John Chavez Power Quotes From The Show Building a Relationship with the Nervous System "We have access to our nervous system; you can speak to your nervous system like it's your best friend - in fact, we should because when we come into a better relationship with our nervous system and acknowledge that some things seem really urgent but in what state do you want to start creating the next step? Do you want to do it in the sympathetic nervous system or parasympathetic?" - Ben Stewart Society Awaking: Opening Our Ears To New Ideas "You shouldn't feel bad for having different thoughts or believes than other people. Let's come together as a community and really listen to one another because we're all in this together. I have no clue what superpower these people gleam from believing things different from me so let's all come together, let's pow-wow, let's talk about what's good about this rather than gossiping and putting each other down. It's great when other people have different thoughts than me; I want to learn what that has done to their mindset and how they move forward in the world accordingly because of it. All of us have a gift to share with the world." - Ben Stewart Learning to Trust Your Discernment "Instead of being corned into fear by the media and relying on something outside of yourself to feel safe, trust your discernment. Start trusting your intuition because when you learn to do that then you know when something doesn't feel right. You don't have to have all of the answers or details; just move slower and be more discerning. Even if you slip up - what did you learn from it?" - Ben Stewart Links From Today's Show  Gaia | Ben Stewart Ben Stewart Podcast DMT Quest Documentary Waking Infinity News Podcast Gaia | Waking Infinity 323 Charles Eisenstein Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac: An Overview Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life by Marshall B.

The incredible level of physical, mental, and emotional health that Scott's grandfather still has at the age of 88 and why it inspires his wellness journey. Why he focuses on being part of work that helps people develop and age well throughout life. The difference between focusing on living a good health span rather than just longevity. Exploring how far we have come in the health and wellness tech space for healing the human body. The benefits of Hapbee and why it's essentially the "digital imprint of a drug." [14:00] How To Digitize A Drug The various emotional vibrations from the lowest at shame and the highest at enlightenment and love. How Scott's team formulated the Hapbee technology to quantify emotional intelligence. Which 8 current frequencies are available with the Hapbee device to boost your vibration. How Hapbee has been designed to be very safe especially when you consider all of the radiation our cell phones emit. The benefits of digitizing a drug compared to taking a physical drug and all of the issues that come along with it from side effects to high costs. 401 Jerry Ross Why people like Dr. Kenneth Ferguson who invented Cialis are now exploring how digitizing drugs can benefit the human body. How they used magnetometers to hear magnetic waves starting to come off of the molecules of a drug. What studies are currently being done to see how digitizing chemotherapy can help cancer patients but it could take a decade or more with all of the studies that need to be done. Which drugs they have begun digitizing and completing safety tests for including caffeine, nicotine, and even stimulants found in dark chocolate. 312 Kevin Kelly [27:30] Hapbee for Children & Pets Who Hapbee is for and how it can help them on their wellness journey. Dr. Steven Gundry The attention Hapbee is getting in the functional and holistic medicine world right now. Who should be careful with Hapbee including people that have a pacemaker or are pregnant yet Scott and his team have not seen any issues in their studies so far. The fact that many parents are having their children use Hapbee if they have ADHD, trouble sleeping, or do not want them to use pharmaceuticals. Positive behavior pet owners are experiencing when they wear the device and their pet comes and curls up next to them. [30:00] Quantifying Emotional Intelligence Exploring the study they have done on covalent and non-covalent bonds in the body. Breaking down the technology of Hapbee even further and how it's been designed to work with and aide your body. Why the cannot use covalent bonds and only non-covalent bonds which is a free range electron exchange. Fascinating patterns they're finding in their studies where someone either feels Hapbee working right away very strongly or it takes them a couple of tries including their CTO, Sid. Why people who have done a lot of brain work like meditation and inner work for trauma usually feel the effects of Hapbee right away. 310 Ariel Garten If you have a trauma blockage and have not done anything before on your own or with someone to heal it, that can literally block Hapbee's sensations. 385 Dr. David Rabin How Hapbee's sensations have been designed to only give you a medium dosage; you cannot get drunk or high or caffeine stimulated from their device. [37:30] Most Surprising Benefits of Hapbee How products that directly stimulate the prefrontal cortex compare to Hapbee which focuses on creating whitespace and playing the quietest signal. What plans Hapbee has for their products in the future including possibly plant medicine based modulations. How Hapbee wants to keep expanding to help people with their physical and emotional wellbeing beyond just helping people feel safe to actually make your cells behave in a very specific way. 130 Tom Bilyeu The main benefits of using Hapbee in your day to day life including better sleep and focus. 384 Shawn Stevenson How Hapbee can help break poor habits and creative positive change like ending a caffeine or melatonin habit. The advantage of using Hapbee for something like an energy boost over a cup of coffee. 373 Matteo Franceschetti [51:00] Building Your Personal Wellness Toolbox Breaking down the difference between PEMF and Hapbee's ulRFE technology. Upcoming digital drug signal blends that Hapbee is partnering up with several health and wellness influencers to create. Dr. Drew Pinsky Jim Kwik NutriSense 397 Kara Collier 403 Robb Wolf How to build a personal wellness toolbox according to your bio signature. 40 Years of Zen Scott's own experience suffering from stress, anxiety, and finding out he had celiac disease, low testosterone, wasn't absorbing nutrients, and had a parasite from years ago that he needed to heal. The struggles we all face in life and how they help us grow. Joe Polish Be Here Now by Ram Dass Scott's spiritual journey and why he considered becoming a pastor at one point until his theology professor told him to become a leader in the business world. His mission to use business for good and to help more people as quickly as possible. BJ Fogg The Social Dilemma | Official Trailer | Netflix   Power Quotes From The Show   Game Over for Big Pharma "Everything from our cells to our neurons is connected through sound and frequency. So, we asked ourselves, 'What if we could digitize a drug?' If you take drugs, there's a chemical bound and the potential for side effects, toxicology issues addiction problems, and it's very expensive. If you can digitize it and remove any of the side effects, you can still give people the desired altered state that will help our lives move forward, to engage with other people, to focus more, to sleep better, and more. There's so many practical reasons and if you can digitize a drug, it's game over for Big Pharma." - Scott Donnell An All-In-One Support Tool "Hapbee is a tool and we're not going to fix everybody's problems but what we can do is be right there as a perfect assistant for you when you need it quickly. Think of it as an easier version of a sleeping pill and something that helps you with your energy levels in the middle of the day and can also give you that nice Happy Hour relaxed feel all in one. You don't have to go cold turkey from everything in your life, but this is at your side when you need it right away." - Scott Donnell Wellness Is Freedom "Wellness to me is waking up every day and being able to do, think, believe, say what I want to that day and not be restricted. Whether it's going on a walk or hanging out with the people that I love, that's wellness at the end of the day - it's freedom." - Scott Donnell Links From Today's Show  EMulate Therapeutics Mind Pioneer Podcast with Scott Donnell 361 Luke Storey 389 Dave Asprey 401 Jerry Ross 312 Kevin Kelly Dr. Steven Gundry 310 Ariel Garten 385 Dr. David Rabin 130 Tom Bilyeu 384 Shawn Stevenson 373 Matteo Franceschetti Dr. Drew Pinsky Jim Kwik NutriSense 397 Kara Collier 403 Robb Wolf 40 Years of Zen Joe Polish Be Here Now by Ram Dass BJ Fogg The Social Dilemma | Official Trailer | Netflix Leave Wellness Force a review on iTunes Cured Nutrition – Get 15% off of your order when you visit wellnessforce.com/cured + use the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Organifi – Special 20% off to our listeners with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE' Paleovalley – Save 15% on your ACV Complex with the code ‘JOSH' Drink LMNT – Zero Sugar Hydration: Get your free LMNT Sample Pack, you only cover the cost of shipping Belcampo Meat Co – Save 15% on your first order with the code ‘WELLNESSFORCE'!
