    Do you ever wake up feeling a sense of anxiety or grief, but have no personal reason to feel that way? As it turns out, we are all connected on a global scale of synchronization through a global information field. Dr. Rollin McCraty has spent his life studying the connection between the heart, mind, body, and energetic fields and is here today to share the results of his research with you. Key Takeaways If you are looking to better understand the resident frequencies of the global coherence, you must: Understand how the heart communicates with the brain, body, and people around you Accept that globally we are synchronized to each other and the earth  Find energy through magnetic fields and feed the field with positivity and compassion Gaining Clarity On The Heart’s Coherence with Dr. Rollin McCraty Rollin McCraty, Ph.D. is the research director at the HeartMath Institute and a Florida Atlantic University professor. Dr. McCraty is a psychophysiologist who studies the physiology of emotion. Focused on the mechanisms by which our emotions influence the cognitive process, behavior, health, and the global interconnectivity between people and the Earth’s energetic systems, he is passionate about the heart’s role in health, behavior, performance, and quality of life. The Connection Between The Heart and The Body There are four primary ways in which the heart connects to the body and communicates with the brain. The quality of these neuro signals affects your brain's function and your perceptions of the world. The magnetic fields of our Earth carry this information and can impact our ability to synchronize with each other and the world around us. Heart rate variability, intuition, and field line residences all play a part in these frequencies and can have a huge effect on your experiences in the world. Improving the Global Information Field For The Greater Good Throughout his research, Dr. McCraty has proven the slow wave of global synchronization that is taking place. We are all contributing to the global information field, and Dr. McCraty argues that by feeding this field with positivity and compassion that it is possible to become better in sync with ourselves, our peers, and the world as a whole. By taking self-responsibility for ourselves, we can increase inclusiveness, collaboration, and cooperation to build a healthier and happier global information field. Dr. McCarty is making the deniable undeniable and confirming what many of us intuitively know to be true. Are you ready to align your heart and brain and start feeding into the field positively?

Every cell in our body feels that magnetic field, as do other people around us.” (6:10) “What we are really showing is what all the great philosophers and religions all around the planet have been talking about for millennia, which is that the heart is that doorway, if you will, to that deeper part of ourselves.” (16:03) “It is metaphorically like measuring the heart rhythms and brain waves of planet earth. As it turns out, it may not be a metaphor, but ill keep it at that for now.” (23:24) “The only thing that could really explain this is that they were all synchronizing to something external that was everywhere in California, some environmental signal. It turned out to be the time during the magnetic field. Exactly the power of the rhythms that I was talking about earlier that overlap our hearts and brains ” (33:27) “Were finding that people really are synchronizing globally, which really is amazing. We like to talk about ‘on some level we are all connected’, I hear that all the time.

    Ocean Robbins was born into the famous Baskin Robbins Family. A harsh brush with the reality of unhealthy diets changed Ocean, his parents, and eventually, his grandfather’s point of view and they have never looked back since. Now the CEO of the 500,000+ member Food Revolution Network, author, speaker, facilitator, father, dancer, and movement builder, Ocean is passionate about the necessary food revolution to regain the health of our nation. Key Takeaways Toxic chemicals that are routinely found in modern food are scientifically proven to contribute to disease, illness, and suffering You can simply enter the kingdom of vital, healthy living by eating foods which increase your health and overall longevity It is possible to promote healthy food as the norm and the foundation for health, and it can actually be cheaper than toxic foods are now Getting Your Health Back Through Whole Foods with Ocean Robbins Ocean believes that there are two most important days of your life, the day you are born and the day you discover why you were born. His calling is to help others regain their health through healthy, delicious, sustainable food for everyone. Eating healthy is not just enough for Ocean; he wants to spread this knowledge to prevent suffering and increase the human population’s longevity. Systemically Changing The Way We View Food For The Greater Good Everything from changing government subsidies around food policies, to the way our medical system is trained to treat disease rather than create a foundation of health, and the healing power of gratitude is on the table today as we dive into the passionate work of Ocean Robbins. By eating with consciousness, bringing joy to everything in our lives, especially food, and highlighting the four pillars for a healthy life, it is possible to stand up, make a change, and get informed about the longterm effects of the foods you are putting into your body. How To Start A Food Revolution Through Love Despite a person’s political perspectives, ideologies, or faith backgrounds, the human body generally responds to food in pretty predictable ways. Ocean views this as an opportunity to work with people from all nationalities and value systems to bring together a common denominator, healthy eating. Expressing love through food is Oceans’ answer to the toxic food system that is so prevalent in our country and the world, and he is calling upon you to join him. Do you feel passionate to call the population to action in regards to the disease-causing foods our society is eating? Are you ready to join the Food Revolution?

And then there are some people who do get a second chance, and they take it. And I want to help more people take their chances without even having to be on death’s door.” (5:30) “To eat real, whole, natural, sustainable food, is actually revolutionary. It actually takes being radical and transforming the norms. Because our convenience foods, our fast foods, our school foods, our hospital foods, are all serving what quite frankly is food-like substances.” (11:10) “Wherever you stand and whatever your health history is it's going to have an impact on what’s right for you. But broadly speaking, in the broad terms of things, we can see that eating a diet that is based around more plants and more whole foods is going to be beneficial for the vast majority of humanity.” (22:02) “I think love is a great place to start. Because when we love, we have a reason to live. And when we have a reason to live, then suddenly we care for ourselves, and we care for our loved ones, and we care for life.” (28:24) “Everybody deserves love, that’s the bottom line. And with food is a wonderful place to express that, because everybody eats. And so I get the beautiful opportunity in my work to share about healthy eating with everybody.”(32:37) “I want to see a world where food is taken seriously, where the food industry takes health seriously, and where science guides the choices that people are encouraged to make around food, not industry profits.” (43:17)   Links Food Revolution Network Website Diet for a New America by John Robbins Find the full show notes for this episode here Keep up with all things Love Is Medicine Follow Razi on Facebook | Instagram

    117: Proof Of Heaven: A Near Death Experience w/ Dr. Eben Alexander


    Dr. Eben Alexander spent over 20 years as a renowned academic neurosurgeon, before waking up one morning with horrible back pain. Within 3.5 hours Dr. Alexander had slipped into a coma, that would take him away from this world for 7 days. When Dr. Alexander returned, his ability to regain his knowledge from this world, and the world he had experienced while unconscious, shocked medical professionals and the world alike. Proof Of Heaven with Dr. Eben Alexander The extraordinary world Dr. Alexander experienced within his coma has been the basis for his book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Dr. Eben Alexander, as well as brought key insights to the mind-body discussion and to our human understanding of the fundamental nature of reality. With his son’s encouragement, Dr. Alexander wrote down his experience in over 20,000 words and dove into other experiences of near-death experiences. What he found was shocking similarities, unexplainable healing, and a passion for sharing information about near-death experiences and other spiritually transformative experiences, and what they teach us about consciousness and the nature of reality. Dismissing Myths Between Consciousness and Reality While traditional science chooses to focus on the materialistic aspect of consciousness, Dr. Alexander’s life-changing experience has brought into clarity the ‘Cloud of Possibility’ and the many fundamental truths of consciousness. Dr. Alexander views near-death experiences as the tip of the consciousness sphere, and act as a way to remind the soul of something that they already know. By awakening yourself to participate in our shared duty to participate in our evolution of consciousness, you can become one with the divine and step into our true interconnectedness. The Infinite Healing Power of Unconditional Love Above all else, Dr. Alexander’s experience showed him the power that unconditional love has to heal and overcome all else. Through the understanding that love is what binds us together, you too can have a spiritually transformative experience and begin to accept the truth of the Universe and your role in it. Nothing is stronger than love, and by dismissing the false thinking of separation and embracing the true healing that comes from self-exploration and looking from within, you can embrace the relationship of our hearts, love, and consciousness. Have you ever had a near-death or transformative experience or known someone who has gone through it? Share your insights with your experience or your belief in love as the ultimate healer with me in the comments on the episode page.   In This Episode Recognizing the disconnection between quantum physics and consciousness (4:40) Learn about the emerging scientific model of ‘Filter Theory’ and how it affects your consciousness (14:34) Recount the amazing and inexplicable events that lead to Dr. Alexander’s Proof Of Heaven and complete recovery (18:40) How to become and embody the love that you are and be in touch with your heart resonance (30:55) The role of love and sound in the healing power of mind-body medicine (39:40)   Key Takeaways The three most important things that you can take away from Dr. Alexanders near-death experience are: Traditional science cannot begin to understand the deep connection between consciousness and the mind-body debate Love can truly conquer all when we are able to accept our role in the creation of an unconditionally supportive world Sound, reincarnation and the spiritual Universe play a massive role in our ability to heal and love one another   Quotes “I think it does resonate, I like to think that it reminds souls of something they know deep down. Because we have all been through this cycling of multiple spiritual realms and into these physical incarnations and this is really just about getting to a deeper wisdom that is closer to the truth about the nature of reality.” (3:35) “I see near-death experiences as really kind of the tip of the sphere, to kind of force us into a much richer interpretation of consciousness and the brain-mind relationship. And this is very refreshing because it leads us away from this kind of simplistic and false materialism that is part of our modern science.” (17:37) “In fact, the best topics that map out our ascendence along this pathway of growth is a compass that leads us to make choices out of love, compassion, acceptance, mercy, and forgiveness. And these are the most direct pathways, these point out the lessons that humanity is challenged to learn in this millennia of our current epoch.” (24:24) “To put this love in perspective was really was more of becoming the love that I am and that we all are.” (30:20) “Each and every one of us can serve as a point of light. We can all come to a higher truth about all of this, realize the power we have to manifest this perfect world, and we can bring it into being. This is not some wishful thinking, pie in the sky kind of idea, but actually something that is a practical part of the awakening that I see coming to this world now.” (38:15)   Links Dr. Eban Alexander's website Follow Dr. Alexander on Facebook | Twitter | YouTube Sacred Acoustics Find all of Dr. Eben Alexander's books here Dr. Eben Alexander's reading list Eternea Find the full show notes for this episode here Keep up with all things Love Is Medicine Follow Razi on Facebook | Instagram

And it’s not because we lack pharmaceuticals or we lack a stint or we lack a surgery, there is a reason for it. And those of us who have awakened to the fact that there is a reason for it are really going to be changing what is going on in the world.” (10:12) - Jack “I learned a lot through our transition together. I think we grew together as a couple and became even healthier and stronger from what we have studied together.” (25:54) - Heather “Whatever you bring into your house, is it natural or not?

    113: The Importance Of Play As An Adult w/ Michael Mendizza


    Michael Mendizza is an author, documentary filmmaker, social change maker, and thought leader. His work focuses on the intellectual construct of culture, the importance of play, and the balance between possibility and appropriateness.  When you enter into a state of play, your ego is replaced with passion, commitment, and a willingness to try something more than once. Michael believes that real play is where real learning takes place and is here today to help you tap into the innate intelligence of your heart.  By focusing on play, you can identify your eases and diseases so that you can remove your identity from your culture and discover who you truly are. Instead of letting intellect, anxiety, or ego get in the way, Michael is here to inspire you to escape your false identity and embrace the power of play and heart bonding. Full of tips for mentoring your children, getting out of your ego-driven defense structure, and ways that you can start to embrace play on a daily basis, Michael is an expert full of knowledge and insight. What did you enjoy most about Michael’s play-based perspective? Share with us in the comments on the episode page.    In This Episode The distinction between conditioning and real learning when it comes to parenting Learn about the connection between the thought process and our ability to play Why the love of a child is the greatest opportunity for personal transformation on the planet Discover the number one skill necessary to transcend your social ego  The importance of heart resonance and why it is missing in modern technology  Why telepathy is the greatest method of teaching or mentoring   Quotes “You take the innovation that the intellect is capable of, and you blend it with ‘is this an appropriate innovation or action to take?’. And if we listen to the heart, we would change radically what we allow our intellect to do.” (6:27) “Play is how nature designed us to live, learn, and grow. Play is the way that we do that, at any age and at any stage and in any activity. Play is what athletes call the zone, play is what the research community call flow.” (19:38) “Culture is basically an intellectual construct, not a heart construct. So most adults are play deprived, most adults have not been allowed to play, don’t know how to play, which means they have these big defensive egos to defend themselves against a world they didn’t trust… all of those are cultural conditioning.” (27:05) “The hero’s journey does not say you have to have children. The hero’s journey is to basically step out of the conditioning and the identity that you have, going outside of the culture, discovering who you really are. And then the final stage of the hero’s journey is you come back in that transformed state and actually help the rest of the culture realize what a blind box I am in.” (32:20) “You only want what’s really wonderful for that child, and that means you have to learn and grow and change, otherwise you are going to condition them to be just as afraid and as stupid as you are, as we are!” (44:54)   Links Michael Mendizza Website Find the full show notes for this episode here Keep up with all things Love Is Medicine Follow Razi on Facebook | Instagram
