Michele Rosenthal | Your Life After Trauma

Michele RosenthalIf you suffer from the effects of trauma or PTSD, whether it was caused by a single-incident like a car accident, or from chronic childhood abuse, domestic violence, illness, or war trauma, you are well aware of how disconnected you feel from the person you most deeply wish to be. Trauma interrupts—even hijacks—your identity.

To cope, you may rely on mechanisms to keep your emotions, triggers, and responses in check, but these very habits can often prevent the true restoration of safety, stability, and inner connection. How can you rediscover your sense of self so that you honor who you were before the trauma (even if that trauma began at birth), understand who you are at this very moment, and determine who you want to be going forward?

My guest today is Michele Rosenthal. In 1981 as a thirteen-year-old child Michele was given a routine antibiotic for a routine infection and suffered anything but a routine reaction. An undiscovered allergy to the medication turned her into a full-body burn victim almost overnight. By the time Michele was released from the hospital she had lost 100% of her epidermis, or the top layer of her skin. And as she says in her book: Even more importantly, she had completely lost herself.

Michele struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for over 25 years before reaching a full recovery. Today, she is 100% PTSD free and is now a professional coach who specializes in helping trauma victims rebuild their lives.




Dr. Joe Dispenza | The Placebo Effect: Healing By Thought Alone

DrJoeDispenza2It is interesting to note that throughout history “witch doctors” and shamans have healed people (and made them sick) using hexes, curses, witchcraft, voodoo, and other mysterious phenomena. These stories are often laughed about and shrugged off yet even today scientists and researchers are giving control groups sugar pills in their studies and seeing miraculous healing.

Is it possible to harness the healing power of the mind? And more importantly is it possible to teach the scientific principles of the placebo effect?

In his book You Are the Placebo, Dr. Joe Dispenza shares numerous documented cases of those who reversed cancer, heart disease, depression, crippling arthritis, and even the tremors of Parkinson’s disease by believing in a placebo.

Listen in to my interview with Dr. Dispenza and learn how you can heal by thought alone.




Dr. Bruce Lipton | The Science Behind Creating Happiness, Passion and Health Everyday

Bruce LiptonYou may have heard of the Honeymoon Effect, that state of bliss, passion, energy, and health resulting from a huge love in your life. Your life is so beautiful that you can’t wait to get up to start a new day and thank the Universe that you are alive. Think back on the most spectacular love affair of your life—the Big One that toppled you head over heels.

For most, it was a time of heartfelt bliss, robust health, and abundant energy. Life was so beautiful that you couldn’t wait to bound out of bed in the morning to experience more Heaven on Earth. Unfortunately for most, the Honeymoon Effect is frequently short lived. Imagine what your day to day experience would be like if you could maintain the Honeymoon Effect throughout your whole life.

So I’ve got to ask: what if the Honeymoon Effect was not a chance event or a coincidence, but a personal creation? How do we lose the Honeymoon Effect in the first place and is it possible to manifest it on purpose?

With me today is Dr. Bruce Lipton internationally recognized authority in bridging science and spirit and a leading voice in new biology. Bruce was on the faculty of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and later performed groundbreaking stem-cell research at Stanford University.

Dr. Lipton is the bestselling author of The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter & Miracles; Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here) and The Honeymoon Effect: The Science of Creating Heaven on Earth.




Dr. Ann Weiser Cornell | Difficult Emotions: Bringing Peace To Inner Wars

AnnYour most difficult emotions do not have to rule your life.

You can become bigger than your problems by letting your body rewire the brain. Being with your emotions, rather than being your emotions, allows them to change. Your feelings – even your most challenging feelings – no longer have to be the enemy inside.

But, how can we bring peace to the inner wars that are in the way of having the life we want?

Inner Relationship Focusing, also known as Focusing, is a simple yet profound awareness process that is based on research that allows the power of your body to rewire your mind. You can learn a way to get calm and access your larger self, even in the most stressful situations. Even better – You’ll be able to process reactive emotional states so they don’t bother you in the future, which results in lasting positive change.

For more than 30 years, Dr. Ann Weiser Cornell has been exploring, teaching and writing about the mysteries of emotional process, including: the paradox of how we become more whole by acknowledging our parts, how the most despised places in us contain our greatest treasure, and how the body’s felt sense, held in a compassionate state of Presence, is the key to change.




Colin Tipping | Healing Relationships & Loving Your Body

colinOne thing that psychology teaches us is that we all have a large measure of self-hatred in our unconscious minds. Carl Jung referred to this as our shadow – everything about ourselves that we are ashamed of or feel guilty about that we have pushed down deep, well out of our awareness. That way we never have to look at it again, much less deal with.

But we have to deal with it because it’s going to manifest in someway or another, hatred towards our bodies or bad relationships or however it manifests in life.

Back on the Mastermind Show is Colin Tipping, creator of Radical Forgiveness. We’re going to go deep into specific topics that radical forgiveness can help heal like your relationship with your body and also to other people.

Vanessa Van Edwards 2Have you ever walked into a party afraid what people were thinking of you? Had someone forget they had met you before? Or stumbled your way through an awkward date? If so, this interview is for you…

Understanding people is the most important life skill a person can have. Yet, we are not taught people skills in school. Nor do our parents sit us down and teach us how to interact effectively.

But here’s the problem:

• Do people like me?
• How can I win the deal?

Well using the latest research on human behavior, psychology, and relationships Vanessa Van Edwards is going to answer those questions.




Dr. Dan Siegel | The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain

Dan SiegelBetween the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. It’s no wonder that many parents approach their child’s adolescence with fear and trepidation.

According to renowned neuropsychiatrist Daniel Siegel’s New York Times bestseller Brainstorm, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.

In Brainstorm, Dr. Siegel illuminates how brain development impacts teenagers’ behavior and relationships. Drawing on important new research in the field of interpersonal neurobiology, he explores exciting ways in which understanding how the teenage brain functions can help parents make what is in fact an incredibly positive period of growth, change, and experimentation in their children’s lives less lonely and distressing on both sides of the generational divide.

Well I have Dr. Siegel on the show today and we’re going to discuss adolescence, the teenage brain, moodiness and eye rolling and how parents can keep their sanity during it all.




Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener | The Upside of Your Dark Side

Robert Biswas-DienerHappiness experts have long told us to tune out our negative emotions and focus instead on mindfulness, positivity, and optimism. Well the authors of the book The Up Side of Your Darkside disagree. Drawing upon extensive scientific research and a wide array of real-life examples they show that positive emotions alone are not enough. Anger makes us creative, selfishness makes us brave, and guilt is a powerful motivator. The real key to success lies in emotional agility.

Well, today on the Mastermind Show I’m talking with one of the authors of that book Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener.

Robert is widely known as the “Indiana Jones of Psychology” because his research on social psychology has taken him to such far-flung places as Greenland, India, Kenya, and Israel. He has conducted studies with the Amish, Maasai tribal people, sex workers, seal hunters living near the North Pole and a variety of other groups traditionally overlooked by psychologists.
