Letting Go of Nothing with Peter Russel 

 

“Practice not-doing, and everything will fall into place.” – Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu

 

 

Episode Summary:

 

Can you really, truly let go? When you hear people talk about letting go, do you wonder what that even means?

 

In this episode, we talk with Peter Russel, author, speaker and leading thinker on consciousness and contemporary spirituality. He earned an honors degree in theoretical physics and psychology, as well as a master’s degree in computer science at the university of Cambridge, England. He also studied meditation and Eastern philosophy in India. He has written 12 books, his latest is “Letting Go of Nothing”.

 

Listen in to understand how Peter Russel views letting go as leaning into and allowing vs. resisting.

 

 

 

Topics We Discuss:



  • Tuning into the body - noticing, being curious about and exploring the sensations in your body without judging or labeling.
  • How our thoughts can create the discontent in our lives.
  • How the societal belief system around us reinforces our tendency to focus on what is wrong in our lives, and our subsequent want to correct them.
  • Developing a practice via baby steps to step out of that habit of focusing on what is wrong.
  • Ego is defined as a way of thinking which focuses on keeping you safe.
  • How gaining the skill to recognize the ego when it comes up results in more contentment and recognizing the true self.
  • Peter’s unique perspective of praying to the true self – the eternal sense of “I am” - vs praying to a higher power.
  • Finding compassion for a difficult person in our lives heals us.
  • The difference between Buddha’s life time, and the times we are living in with all the distractions of email, television, social media, etc.

    AWAKENING THE HEALER WITHIN with KELLY GORES      “You can learn to play the instrument of your own body and stimulate healing.” -- Kelly Noonan Gores, director of the documentary “Heal”       Episode Summary:   Why do some of us get sick and others skate through life unscathed by illness?  Are we victims of our circumstances -- or do we have significant influence over our health? How do our thoughts, beliefs and emotions impact our ability to heal?   In this first episode of 2022, we talk with Kelly Noonan Gores, a well-known Los Angeles based child actress turned producer/director of the widely popular documentary Heal, seen formerly on Netflix and currently on Amazon Prime. Heavyweights in the mind body arena – foremost scientists and spiritual leaders - make up the cast:  Deepak Chopra, Joe Dispenza, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Michael Beckwith and Dr. Bruce Lipton and so many fascinating others.   Kelly’s new book, “Heal: Discover your Unlimited Potential and Awaken the Healer Within” is out now.   Listen in to hear Kelly Noonan Gores’ enthusiasm for consciousness and possibility, and the miraculous intelligence of the human body.     Topics We Discuss: [5:10] Starting from a characteristic teenage cloud of aimlessness and angst, how a transformative experience at age 19, reading Marianne Williamson’s book “Return to Love” on a flight home from Australia, upshifted and redirected Kelly’s intentions toward a spiritual path.   [8:35] The process of making the unconscious conscious, and the importance of replacing our early childhood imprinting programs with more serving belief systems.   [13:37] The easy availability of free, powerful alternative modes of healing – for example, breathwork to stimulate the vagus nerve, Joe Dispenza’s online meditation courses, books, books, books. Libraries and the internet are loaded with free resources.   [18:55] The importance of balancing alternative and Western medicine methods.   [20:20] Acceptance as step one to healing, vs. resisting what is. Letting go of the fear of death, which is the ultimate resistance. And finding your joy.   [23:50] Disease prevention practices. Find what feels good! Meditate. Turn your phone off. Give your body time to rest and reset and repair. Open to your internal guidance system. Approach exercise to feel good – move your body to release endorphins, eliminate toxins, release positive hormones and feel positive emotions (vs. fear weight gain or fear ill health). Be outdoors in nature. Give yourself grace. Do the best you can.   [35:54] The importance of taking the leap to follow your heart, whether or not you know how to get there. Saying “yes” and moving forward.   [38:40] Kelly answers Amy’s speed round questions.   Spirituality means…? What is something most people don’t know about you?

    Amy Reflects on the Biology of Belief with Dr. Bruce Lipton - part 2

    48:56

    “How you respond to that person is going to be different than how I respond to that person. What does that say? It’s not the person, it’s what’s inside of me, my own consciousness. That is where the science and the spirituality and the awareness all come together. We can begin to make changes at the cellular level by shifting our unconscious awareness to conscious awareness. Many tools to get us there – meditation, yoga, nature, therapy, whatever it is - just get here.” -- Dr. Amy Robbins

    Amy Reflects on the Biology of Belief with Dr. Bruce Lipton - Part 1

    48:24

    PART 1 of 2 – Amy Reflects on The Biology of Belief with Dr. Bruce Lipton   “How you respond to that person is going to be different than how I respond to that person. What does that say? It’s not the person, it’s what’s inside of me, my own consciousness. That is where the science and the spirituality and the awareness all come together. That is where we can begin to make changes at the cellular level by shifting our unconscious awareness to conscious awareness. Many tools to get us there – meditation, yoga, nature, therapy, whatever it is - just get here.” -- Dr. Amy Robbins       Episode Summary:   Do you ever mean for your day to go differently than it actually does – and you’re stumped as to why it went off the rails?  Do you want to shift the trajectory of your life but you don’t know quite how? Do you wonder how much control you actually have over your circumstances?   Well… hold on to your hat!    Science and spirituality fuse in this mind blowing episode where Dr. Amy Robbins reflects on her super popular podcast episode – #157 The Biology of Belief with stem cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton, PhD. His findings in cell biology not only changed the conversation at the medical table, he knocked the table over!  Dr. Amy Robbins narrates and shares very personal impressions of their conversation.   You also enjoy behind the scenes clips.   Well known internationally, Dr. Bruce H. Lipton bridges science and spirit.  He is a ground breaking stem cell biologist, best-selling author of The Biology of Belief, and recipient of the 2009 of the Goi Peace Award. BTW, Goi is Japan’s version of the Nobel, and Bill Gates won it in 2008. He has been a guest on hundreds of TV and radio shows, and is a frequent conference keynote speaker.   Listen in to understand how -- using stem cell biology and quantum physics -- Dr. Bruce Lipton connects the dots through early childhood subconscious imprinting, different ways to navigate our lives, and ultimately how we can create the lives we want by changing our biology. Dr. Lipton tells us how to live our dreams.     Topics We Discuss: [5:02] The premise of Dr. Lipton’s work and why people have flocked to it for years.   [15:15] The energy in your environment shapes your DNA!   [17:15] The chemistry of your blood determines the fate of your cells. Love chemicals hate chemicals.   [21:30] How to replace fear with feelings of love.   [23:00] Epigenetic control of genes is like an architect’s blueprint. Genes are turned on and off depending on your perception of your environment. We have control!   [25:30] Deep dive and how to manage inevitable, real, human fear.   [29:20] There are no genes for cancer. Lifestyle, belief, stress are the determining factors.   [33:28] Take more vacations! Regular daily mind vacations are essential: walk with a friend, art class, yoga, meditation…   [34:50] Positive thinking alone will not impact our lives. Rather, more mindfulness is key. We are 95% subconscious vs 5% conscious. The goal is to decrease thinking and increase conscious mindfulness.   [45:38] The importance of becoming aware of your behavior. Using meditation, yoga, nature, therapy to bring your unconscious conscious.     FOLLOW DR. BRUCE LIPTON   Dr. Lipton’s works summarizing his findings, The 10th anniversary edition of The Biology of Belief, his second book Spontaneous Evolution, Our Positive Future and a Way to Get There from Here, and his third book The Honeymoon Effect, the Science of Creating Heaven on Earth are all available now.   Follow Dr. Bruce Lipton:   Website       SUPPORT DR.

    The Emotional Entrepreneur with Scout Sobel

    39:36

    THE EMOTIONAL ENTREPRENEUR with SCOUT SOBEL    “I don't control my bipolar disorder. I live in a dance with it. I accept that… I always say pain alchemized into gold.”   “Live in uncertainty’s discomfort. There you will find all future abundance.”                         – Entrepreneur Scout Sobel     Episode Summary:   How do you control the most negative aspects of your personality? Of your life? How do you manage emotional turmoil, or maybe a negative thought running on a loop?   In this episode, we talk with Scout Sobel, founder of Scouts Agency, a PR agency that gets women as guests on podcasts. Scout’s agency had six figure revenue the first year, grew by 250% the next and grew 60% this year. Scout is cohost of the popular, Okay Sis podcast which spotlights female guests and focuses on telling women’s stores. Through Okay, Sis, Scout fell in love with spreading women's stories and identified the rising popularity and influence of podcasts.  She is a trailblazer in the media industry for using podcasts as a powerful form of PR for women, entrepreneurs, podcasters and brands. She now hosts The Emotional Entrepreneur podcast.   Scout's success did not come without trials and tribulations.  For 15 years she has been living with a severe case of bipolar disorder. Once unable to hold a job, go to college or function in society -- with a lot of self-development work, through a harrowing emotional journey with psychosis, depression, anxiety, and self-harm -- Scout turned her life around.   Listen in to this inspirational conversation to understand how Scout took radical responsibility for her mental health and now successfully manages her bipolar disorder and uses her mental health strength to fuel her entrepreneurial dreams.   Topics We Discuss: [8:50] A key to feeling safe in your emotions is giving yourself time to heal. Change takes time. A long time.   [11:39] Building a toolbox to help regulate your emotions: therapy, psychiatry, yoga, meditation, support groups…   [12:50] What it means to be an Emotional Entrepreneur.   [14:00] Finding a framework that suits your soul, your potential, passion and purpose.   [16:00] Incorporating spirituality and prayer into an emotional journey.   [18:30] When Scout calls on her higher power, she feels safe enough to be strong and secure.   [19:42] Why Scout says, “Live in uncertainty’s discomfort. There you will find all future abundance.” Especially for women. Because life is uncertain.   [22:35] Setting a higher standard for yourself. Walk before you run. If you are emotionally weighed down and lost, setting a higher standard means tomorrow you're going to wake up and add in hope. Baby steps.   [24:05] Where Scout finds hope. No intellectualizing, don’t look for evidence. Just trust. Find something that sounds better than where you are today and hope for that.   [26:30] How do you know the Universe is showing you your path? How to open our eyes so we can follow the breadcrumbs.   [30:57] Why resting is as productive as healing. Filling our free time with what nourishes and restores: a bath, meditation, journaling, putting the phone away and reading a book, cooking with your own two hands, getting outside. NOT frying our nervous system with stimulation, stimulation, stimulation.   [35:09] Scout’s first transformative spiritual experience -- where she felt in complete flow with the spiritual realm.         FOLLOW SCOUT SOBEL:   You can learn more about Scout Sobel, connect with Scout’s Agency, and purchase your copy of “The Emotional Entrepreneur” here:   Instagram Website       SUPPORT DR.

Conversation is the antidote to polarization.”          – Ryan Estes, American Buddhist and Entrepreneur       Episode Summary:   Does your spiritual path sort of meander around here and there?  Or are you one of those people who has unwavering beliefs and disciplined spiritual routines?

Always driven by innate curiosity.   [10:46]  How Ryan integrates spirituality and entrepreneurship. Asking the three questions: Is it fun? It is of service? Does it make money?

    Earth is a School with William Wildblood

    47:58

    Earth is a School with William Wildblood   “After we die we experience that which is a reflection of our own consciousness.” – William Wildblood       Episode Summary:   Do you ever ask yourself, “Why me?” Do you wonder if there is rhyme or reason for the inexplicable things -- the good things and the bad things -- that happen to you? Would you like to find meaning in everything that happens to you in your life?   In this episode, we talk with global citizen William Wildblood – BBC writer, antique dealer, and guest house host across locations in the UK, India, and France. His new book “The Earth is a School”, tells us our world is designed to bring human consciousness closer to its divine Source. He tells us every moment and every event holds meaning.   Listen in to understand how William Wildblood views our time spent on earth, as an opportunity to grow spiritually, and ultimately to become closer to our source.     Topics We Discuss: [3:05]  Why William says Earth is a school. Before birth, our soul exists on the other side, a place of bliss, peace, oneness, joy. We come to Earth; a place suffering, pain, challenges and the duality of good/bad. By overcoming those difficulties, we become more conscious spiritual beings, and learn about love.   [5:00]  Suffering teaches us about empathy and love. And results in a deeper spiritual love.   [8:50]  Differentiating human love with spiritual love. How the love of a parent for a child is closest to divine love.   [12:30]  How after death we go to a realm that reflects our consciousness.   [17:04]  What a soul experiences when it returns to earth (or returns in part) and begins to experience another incarnation.   [20:00]  Children’s awareness of the soul, and a sense that this world is not the only world.   [20:55]  William Wildblood’s experiences where his spiritual guides communicated with him over a course of 25 years. Everyone who is interested in these kinds of transmissions can received by engaging in the spiritual world.   [25:41]   More people than ever are seeking spiritual connection, are able to wishing to engage with other realms.   [29:48]  How seemingly difficult experiences are actually spiritual gifts to surface your imperfections.  We are often tested where we are weakest.   [30:45]  An example of a “birthday present” for William from his guides – an unpleasant argument with a close friend.       Follow William Wildblood:   You can learn more about Willian Wildblood’s book, “The Earth is a School”, and his other books “Meeting the Masters” and “Remember the Creator”, and purchase your copy wherever books are sold.       SUPPORT LIFE, DEATH AND THE SPACE BETWEEN:   If you’re enjoying the podcast and finding value in guest interviews, ghost stories, and the content I share, please consider supporting the show by becoming a Patreon member for as little as $5 a month at Patreon.com/DrAmyRobbins   As a member you’ll get more say in the content we cover and exclusive access to behind-the-scenes goodness!   Stay Connected with Dr. Amy Robbins:   Instagram YouTube Fireside Website Facebook

    Synchronicities with Dr. Lydia Cho

    50:51

    SYNCHRONICITIES with DR. LYDIA CHO    “The universe is always nurturing and provides.”   “Prayer is an important form of meditation -- being at peace with yourself and the universe, beseeching what you would like. Prayer, spiritual, enlightenment, and awakening are so related.”   – neuropsychologist Dr. Lydia Cho     Episode Summary:   Have you ever wondered if you can influence how often you experience significant spiritual events?  Is there anything you can do to experience more meaningful synchronicities in your life?   In this episode, we talk with Dr. Lydia Cho, a Harvard Psychologist who studied spirituality with recent guest Dr. Lisa Miller at Columbia Teachers College, author of “The Awakened Brain”. Dr. Cho is currently teaching and researching neuropsychology at Harvard affiliated McLean hospital. And she loves to talk about spirituality and synchronicity. Wow!   Listen in to hear how Dr. Lydia Cho views the interplay between spirituality, religion, psychology, mental health, and the higher power of the universe.     Topics We Discuss: [3:30]   How Dr. Lydia Cho ended up studying synchronicities. From a family of medical professionals with a constant religious practice, emotional functioning felt more important to Dr. Cho than just physical body healthcare. [10:44]  As teenager while playing piano, Dr. Cho experienced smelling the perfume of her beloved, deceased piano teacher. And how her grandparents reacted. [12:00]  While jogging on campus Dr. Cho had a premonition of a dear friend’s passing, followed by a grief dream visitation from her friend. [13:30]  Synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence, a connection between your outer and inner worlds. [13:30]  Dr. Cho’s masters level study in synchronicity awareness resulted in an increase in experiences of synchronicities and a feelings of connectedness. [19:50]  How “the fathers of psychology” and collaborators, Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, viewed synchronicity very differently. Freud considered religion mass delusion. Jung considered religion a valuable psychotherapeutic system of images and symbols. [25:17]  Synchronicities positively impact health outcomes. Outcomes are more positive for people with spirituality within a religious framework vs. being spiritual without a religious framework. [34:11] Harold G. Koenig's research at Duke University on the effects of religion and spirituality on health.  The Duke University Religion Index (DUREL) measure of religious involvement.       FOLLOW DR.

    Cracking Open Your Intuition with Isabeau Maxwell

    51:47

    Cracking Open Your Tuition with Isabeau Maxwell      “Your guides will show you exactly what you need, and exactly what you can handle.” – Isabeau Maxwell   “You hear me say this over and over again... The inner work is a BIG piece of this, because if you don't do the inner work, if you don't look at what's holding you back, if you don't look at the traumas and the difficulties that you've experienced and some early childhood stuff, and maybe even some past life stuff, and you don't clear that out – you can’t connect in this way. And it’s hard AF.“  – Dr Amy Robbins   “When you go through inner work, when you raise your vibration, you're raising yourself up into a space of compassion, a space of higher understanding and knowing… there's more compassion, more love, more connectiveness in your life. You're able to set more healthy boundaries. You experience more joy.”  – Isabeau Maxwell       Episode Summary:   Have you ever kicked yourself because you didn’t listen to your gut feeling? You know, when you JUST KNOW the right thing to do? What if you could amplify your intuition so the messages were clear as a bell?   In this episode, we talk with Isabeau Maxwell, internationally known medium, author and teacher known for her compassion and accuracy. Isabeau specializes in teaching people how to open their own intuitive abilities and live an authentic, blissful life. Her latest books are, “Cracking Open” and “Adventures of a Reluctant Medium”.   Listen in to understand how you can more easily tap into that deep knowing.   Topics We Discuss: [5:05]  Much like Dr. Amy Robbins, Isabeau Maxwell was a reluctant medium. Earlier in life, Isabeau was a spiritual skeptic, having majored in mathematics and chemistry, until a profound and unmistakable after-life visit from her deceased grandmother.     [9:59]  Isabeau’s personal experience with asking and receiving proof.   [13:57]  Souls who are “stuck” between Earth and the other side. The fear, confusion or resistance that keeps them from fully crossing over.   [18:32]  The review process after death. Dr. Amy Robbins idea of what hell may be. Isabeau’s description of what Hitler experienced after death.   [24:02]  How to develop your own intuition. Everyone is a natural intuitive; it’s a matter of putting in the effort – practice Intuition is the sixth sense, just not a body-centered sense like the other five senses Defocusing on the “agreed upon reality” of the solid world   [30:48]  Difference between imagination and intuition, which flow through your brain the same way. Over time, however, you will be able to feel the difference. Imagination is a push, the intuition is a pull. Exercises to help you use imagination to spark intuition.   [32:49]  Synchronicities happen when you open your intuition and expand your channel.   [36:27]  The Sage Method – The approach Isabeau’s guide used – over two years - to show her to tap into her own intuition. Now a 7 week course Isabeau teaches.   [40:54]  The importance of doing the hard, critical inner work.   [43:46]  The intense 30-second daily exercise - grounding, clearing and protecting – to move forward with balanced energy.           FOLLOW ISABEAU MAXWELL   You can learn more about Isabeau Maxwell and The Sage Method here:   Website         SUPPORT LIFE, DEATH AND THE SPACE BETWEEN:   If you’re enjoying the podcast and finding value in guest interviews, ghost stories, and the content I share, please consider supporting the show by becoming a Patreon member for as little as $5 a month at Patreon.com/DrAmyRobbins   As a member you’ll get more say in the content we cover and exclusive access to behind-the-scenes goodness!   Stay Connected with Dr. Amy Robbins:   Instagram YouTube Fireside Website Facebook
