#28 Minding Your Mind!


Recorded live on 1150KKNW with special guest Brooke Boon, who joins me from Holy Yoga Global. In a world full of uncertainty, it’s natural to feel anxious, and maybe even fearful. This episode focuses on finding positive energy and being intentional and compassionate with yourself and with others. This conversation is an excellent reminder that we are truly all in this together.

Today’s Guest

Today’s guest is the founder and CEO of Holy Yoga Global. Through her work she provides world-class training, certifying more than 4500 instructors globally. She also has authored and published 2 books: Holy Yoga: Exercise For the Christian Body and Soul as well as Hatha Yoga Illustrated. I am excited to have Brooke Boon as my guest today on Episode #28, where we talk about choosing positivity and compassion during trying times.

Key takeaways from this episode:

  • We have a choice of what energy to let in.
  • If we choose to participate in a lot of fearful and anxious conversations, we become fearful and anxious as well.
  • Dr. David Hawkins Map of Consciousness; Operating in power versus force
  • Force always meets counter force, power is complete, it doesn’t need to push
  • Feed yourself with positive messages and interact with people who are being intentional and compassionate with themselves and others in the midst of trying times.
  • Find energy from people who are lifting you up and who are thinking about the greater good.
  • We should respect other people and be responsible for the energy that we bring and put out to them.
  • In order to let go of something, you need to have an addition to take its place.
  • What you resist persists.
  • Find something to neutralize the negative reactions to difficult circumstances.
  • Two of the things to find joy in the midst of our current suffering: doing things that we didn’t have time to do and doing things that matter.
  • We are part of humanity. We are not autonomous from one another. We are in “this” together.
