Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 11 and 12 – The inner journey of Mo Gawdat (Founder of #OneBillionHappy)

Part 1:

Part 2:

(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

 

One of Mo Gawdat‘s goals is to help 1 billion people to be happier.
Yes, 1 BILLION people!

He founded One Billion Happy Movement after the success of his Solve for Happy book, which since has been translated into many languages. This is, indeed, his personal moonshot. 

The former Google X Chief of Business Officer refocused his life following the passing of his beloved and wonderful son, Ali, who lived his life with so much peace and happiness. This personal moonshot is Mo’s way to honour Ali’s memory and continue his legacy.

In fact, this is how I got to know Mo in 2015. I was introduced to him by our common friend as he finalized the Solve for Happy book. I became one of the early readers then. Since, we’ve become good friends.

With such a personal moonshot and focused dedication and commitment, I wondered where he is going with his journey, beyond all the goals he has been pursuing. This is what this podcast episode is all about.

As we were about to catch-up a few weeks ago, I asked Mo whether I could have our “usual” chat recorded as a podcast episode and he said yes (I must admit, it felt weird to do so, yet we both were happy we did it).

Join us in this 2 parts relaxed yet deep chat:

  • Part 1 is when Mo reflected on what intentional living means for him and how he’s been living this consistently;
  • Part 2 is when Mo shared his truest and highest intention is for his life, beyond One Billion Happy Movement and all his other goals.

Enjoy this lively discussion. Take whatever you want from it and remember to share it with others!
 
Love,

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 10 – How your birth process still impacts you TODAY – Sharon King

 

(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

 

Yes, you’ve read it correctly. Our birth process STILL impacts us TODAY!

 

Knowing what I know now, it all makes sense. Yet, when I found out about it for the first time, I was gobsmacked, to say the least.

 

I got to know this as I went through sub-conscious mind therapies during my journey to rise back from the burn out I experienced at the end of 2008.

 

In getting back to a full life again (with an intention of never to experience a burnout again ever!), I discovered what human’s subconscious mind is and how it has been impacting my life. Most assumptions we have about ourselves, others and life were formed before we turned 7 and they make us respond or react automatically to situations. Repetitive assumptions (beliefs) become hardwired and automatically influence our behaviours.

 

In one of the sessions when I traced back the limited beliefs that triggered the needs for me to over achieve without taking care of myself, I landed in a memory of the time that I was in my mother’s womb! It was SURREAL yet fascinating at the same time.

 

I never thought of that period of my time consciously. Heck, I didn’t even know that I had a consciousness then.  It was mind-blowing!

 

That was not the only time I was taken back there by my subconscious mind. There were a few more times and each time I realised I formed beliefs that still ran my life until the point of healing.

 

I was intrigued and started digging reading materials about consciousness in the prenatal period. In Biology of Beliefs book, Dr. Bruce Lipton, a renowned cell biologist and an expert in Epigenetic suggests that Subconscious mind is a part of our mind that serves as a database of our stored programs primarily derived from the programming a child receives from the time we were in our mothers’ womb up to the first six years of life.

 

I then came across Sharon King, the creator of a subconscious mind healing method called Matrix Birth Reimprinting. After reading her book, Heal your birth, Heal your life, I decided to learn her method to support my clients even deeper in their healing journey. As I did that, I got to read two other books:  The mind of your newborn baby by Dr. David Chamberlain and Being born by Robyn Fernance. Sharon mentioned Joseph Chilton Pearce as her first mentor in understanding the importance of bonding process between mother and babies. You can find his work here.

A whole new world opened up to me!

In this podcast episode, I invited Sharon to share with us why and how our birth process impacts us today (the same is also true for anyone who had been a part of giving birth process) and why it is important to heal the traumas created then for our lives today.

Please share this episode with your friends and family. The more people become aware of this, the better as it has an important piece of information about us. The more we know about ourselves, the easier it is to show up in our lives in peace and with ease.

Enjoy this lively discussion!

Love,
Astuti

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 8 and 9 – Insights from a Monk turned Surgeon – Jehan de Soyza

Part 1:

 

Part 2:

(You can also listen to this podcast from iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Pocket Casts, and RadioPublic)

 

What I find to be VERY helpful in moving through life following my calling is to be connected with people who are in their journeys moving through theirs. The reflections we share fuel our journeys.

I am fortunate to have these friends in my life. Excitingly, each of them has a very unique path.

I’m putting this blessing forward to the world, to accompany you too.

 

Introducing:  “Intentional Life”, a series in my podcast.

In it, I reflect together with these Go-getters about their journeys and what it gives them. Lessons from the horses’ mouths!

 

In this first episode, I sat together with Jehan de Soyza. Jehan is an Eye Surgeon Trainee in Royal Perth Hospital, Australia.

 

 

     

As a part of his intentional life, Jehan lived and worked as a Monk for 9 years in multiple continents.

He didn’t set out to be one from the get-go. He was a Business student. In fact, that’s how we first met in 1995.

 

The reasons of his evolution – his intentional life – why and how he’s been doing it, the struggles, the presents, and how he brings them into his life today is what we’re discussing in this episode. We reflected together on success, happiness, meditation and self-growth.

The chat is split in 2 parts:

  • The first is about why he chose to serve as a monk, the journey to become one, and what his ascetic life then was like (Mind you, I’m super curious to hear details about it, aren’t you?)
  • The second is about what he learnt from it and how he continue to integrate them into his life today as a husband, a father, and a surgeon.

 

Enjoy and be inspired!
