What is Hypnosis?
So many people are mistaken by what they seen the media.
With us today we have Drake Easturn, a member of multiple hypnotherapy and psychotherapy organizations worldwide. Drake is a member of the National Federation of Hypnotists, a former board member of the Colorado Association of Psychotherapists and he is hypnotist to our very own U.S. Olympic Cycling Team. He and his wife, Lynsi, are the co-founders of Eastburn Hypnotherapy Center and Eastburn Institute of Hypnosis in Colorado.
Tune in as we delve into the hypnosis is all about and what it can do for you!
With us today we have Mitch Horowitz, author of “One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life”. In the limited time that we have, we will try to cover two books, one written by Mitch himself (“One Simple Idea”) and another “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” written by the late Dr. Joseph Murphy. These two books actually go hand in hand, as you will soon found out.
Over 90% of your mental life is subconscious. Your subconscious mind is on the job 24/7 and never sleeps. With that said, how in tune are you with your subconscious mind? How are you interacting with it and what you are you doing to make sure that it is in a healthy state?
With us today we have Michael Harris, author of “The End of Absence: Reclaiming What We’ve Lose in a World of Constant Connection”. This book has been quite the read as it brought into light exactly how much of our lives we are wasting away staring at our phone screens, our ipads, our laptops, etc., instead of spending quality time with people we truly care about and instead of spending quality time alone.
It’s very true that some people just don’t know how to spend time alone. Why is it that we are always seeking constant communication and seeking constant connection? Are we more attached to our phones than to people? Tune in!
Based on Carl Jung’s extraversion and introversion theory, people are split into two categories: people are either introverts or extroverts. Introverts are stereotyped to be shy, poor conversationalists, loners, depressed, without many friends, geeks, and at worst, serial killers, whereas extroverts are stereotyped to be outgoing, sociable, talkative, energetic, need to at the center of attention, and live off of being around a lot of people.
In line with these stereotypes, it is expected that introverts are not natural ‘entrepreneurs’ in such an extroverted society like America. However, Bill Gates, Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg, Charles Schwab, Steven Spielberg, Michael Jordan and Julie Roberts, to name a few, are leading entrepreneurs and role models that have stood out and changed America in a number of unique ways.
With us today we have Beth Buelow, a professional coach that works with introverted business leaders all over the world.
Today we have Joel Fotinos, publisher of Dr. Napoleon Hill’s famous book “Your Right to Be Rich” with us in the studio.
When we think of ‘riches’ we often think of money and wealth. However, Dr. Napoleon Hill viewed riches to be more than just a number sitting in ones bank account – rather, Dr. Hill viewed true riches to be found in goals and dreams and in relationships. To be truly rich, Dr. Hill states that you must be rich in all aspects of life, both personally and spiritually.
The corrections department is an entirely different world beyond ours. Life that takes place behind bars usually stays behind bars but today we will take a closer look at what goes on from a C.O.’s perspective, what it takes to be a C.O. as it tops the list on America’s worst place to work, and the dynamics of the relationship between a C.O. and an inmate. Today we have James Nelson, who spent his entire life serving this country via the military, the sheriffs department and then the corrections department until he retired in recent months.
We are privileged to have today retired NYPD officers Russell Williams and Mike Byrd with us on the show. Tune in with us as we scope through the New York Police Department - who essentially has more power? The people or the police officers? How does racial profiling affect the officers that work within the department? In 2014 alone, there have been 1106 recorded deaths by the police force, nationally. After all that’s said and done, what can both sides, the people of the community and the police department do to keep the peace? I mean, the police department exists to keep people safe and from danger. How much of the departments actions are we to understand and to what extent should police officers be mindful of their actions?Being a nation that wants to believe in the police force, what can we do to balance the tragedies out?
Why is it so hard to get that 2nd date? Tune in with us as we have Co-founder of Platinum Poire Rori Sassoon and her executive vice president Suzanne Scott Pepperdine with us in the studio today. These two experts lay the reasons behind a first and second date as well as the value in quality dating as opposed to fast and easy online dating.
Today we have Veronica Petrovsky with us, live in the studio to give us a detailed look into the life of a young woman who grew up seeing her mother purge, evidently leading to her eating disorder, anorexia nervosa. This is a must listen as we go into self-love, confidence, and so much more behind the deathly disorder.
In recent months, I have had a growing number of young women coming into my office for treatment with eating disorders, namely EDNOS, which stands for Eating Disorders Not Otherwise Specified, Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa.
Before we start, I want to make it clear that EDNOS, Anorexia and Bulimia are hardly about food itself; food and the act of consuming it is just a byproduct. Rather, for some it is about achieving perfectionism, while for others it is about achieving the same kind of “high” one gets from cocaine, drugs, and other substances. The act of purging gives individuals a sort of “high” that keeps them going. Moreover, people that suffer from EDNOS, Anorexia and Bulimia use their power in being able to control their weight and appearance as a defense to hide the hurt, anxiety, fear, and OCD that goes on internally. To have the power to control one’s weight seems to substitute their lack in having control over past events and in other area of their lives.
Anorexia and bulimia become an addiction. The tricky thing is, you can quit booze, you can quit drugs, and you can quit sex, but you can’t quit food.
With us today, we have Elena Dunkle, an Anorexia Nervosa survivor and co-writer of “Elena Vanishing”, a memoir about her journey through recovery.
