Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 15 – Conscious dating and relationship – Kelly Braendli

 

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

 

Relationship can make or break your life, your business, and your sanity.
When it’s healthy, it propels you into expansion. When it isn’t, it swallows you down. You and many people around you.

 

It is easy to say, “I don’t have the right partner”, but do you actually know why?

 

There is a science behind what makes a relationship healthy and long lasting, and this is something we need to know. With such knowledge, we can understand ourselves better and how we show up in a relationship. With such clarity, it helps us to manage ourselves, to make our unconscious reactions becoming conscious choice.

 

 I’m so excited to have Kelly Braendli joining us in this “Conscious Relationship” episode.

Kelly is a Zurich-based Scientific Relationship and Dating Coach, who is also a certified Matchmaker (graduated from The Matchmaking Institute). Through Kelly Braendli Coaching, she supports individuals and couples around the globe to either rekindle their relationships or to go back into a dating scene after divorce. She believes that despite the anxiety, sadness, loss of hope and relationship struggles, we all can bounce back.

 

In this episode, Kelly is sharing the scientific studies behind healthy, loving, long lasting relationship and what it means for each of us to do prior starting a relationship and during the building up process.

 

She elaborately explains the different type of relationships, how relationship plays a huge role in fulfilling your and your partner’s needs (this is why you need to know them!), the importance to be clear on what the most important life values are for you before starting and investing in a relationship and also your attachment style.

 

Trust me, this episode is loaded with tips and tools. Enjoy it!

Oh, share this episode with whoever would need it. The world is in a better state when a lot more people feeling loved and peaceful in themselves and in their relationships. Thanks a lot!!

 

Love,
Astuti

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 14 – Igniting Self and Others – JB Owen

 

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

 

JB Owen is a powerhouse.
She is.

She is a mother of 3 teenagers, a CEO of 3 businesses (Lotus Liners, IGNITE YOU platform and JBO Global) and a loving wife to her husband, Peter.

She is a woman of action – when she puts her mind to something, she does it and she does it well. 

JB is the woman who gave birth to “Ignite Your Life” – the series of books that bring about real life stories how individuals have their ignite moments (in health, wealth, relationships (including parenting), and personal growth) and decided to follow a different course in their lives – feeling ignited! By now, she has published 5 books in this series: Ignite Your Life for Women (I am a contributing author in it), Ignite Your Female Leadership, Ignite Your Life for Men, Ignite Your Parenting, and Ignite Your Life for Conscious Leader

Beyond all these wonderful achievements and contributions, what I find inspiring the most is her journey in her life. It has been filled with intense ups and downs.
Health problems, closed down her businesses, got a divorce, became a single mum with no support were just a few. 

Through it all, she experienced some “ignite moments” when, against opinions of others, she followed her intuition and went into un-chartered territory. She learnt to trust herself and the Universe. I personally feel this is one of the most important things to master in life and the most difficult too.

The bottom line is JB always chose to show up in her life regardless of all the hurdles that came her way. Moreover, now she is living her mission to support others to ignite their lives. Her power quote is “The most successful people make other people successful”. Sweet and impactful.

I’m excited to have JB in this episode where she is sharing with us the pearls of wisdom she collected from her journey – in being a present parent for her children, in being an awakened loving partner to her husband, in being a conscious leader in her 3 businesses, in helping others igniting their lives and in manifesting her desire in and for life.

Enjoy this lively discussion. May this enrich your journey in creating the life that you love and please share this with others! Thank you!
 
Love,
Astuti

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Ep. 13 – Let’s talk about intuition – Sahar Huneidi

Part 1:

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

 

YES! It’s one of my favourite topics and one that I got asked a lot about.

 

My relationship with my intuition was amplified significantly after my father died in 2012. My life was in crisis then and I wanted to be able to connect with my heart (that was grieving so much) to know how to go on in life from then on. 

 

I knew then it was time for me to let go my fears that stopped me from being connected to the voice within me that always knew what would be best for me (I didn’t always like nor trust what I heard from the voice within). I also decided to learn some intuitive skills as a kick off of my journey and until today; I’m still developing my intuitive skills.

 

I’ve made major life decisions following my inner guidance from deep within my heart and, while it has not always been the easiest journey, the choices I’ve made since have allowed me to bring a lot more peace into my life (Peace is what I choose to experience a lot in my life. I choose to become a peaceful person).

 

In this episode, I invited Sahar Huneidi. Sahar is a Dubai-based holistic Personal Development Mentor and Guide who helps people around the world to develop a plan to get back on track with the life that is aligned with their true essence. She does this through her program called #Unbox The Real You.

In our lively conversation, Sahar and I discussed what intuition is, how to cultivate the skills to be connected and live our intuitive guidance with ease and courage. It is filled with enriching tips that you can take with you and apply it immediately (have fun with them!!!)
 

Please share this episode with your friends and family. The more people become more in-tuned with their soul, the easier it is to show up in their lives in peace and with ease.
 
Enjoy this lively discussion!
 
Love,
Astuti

p.s. Sahar is offering a 60 minutes discovery call for you to join her #Unbox The Real You mentoring program. To do so, send her an email at sahar@saharhuneidi.com and write “Uplift My Life Today” in the subject.

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,
Astuti

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!

Uplift My Life Today Podcast – Episode 7 – Are you breathing consciously?

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

 

BREATHE…

I heard my therapist repeating this to me as I received her help to rise back from the burnout I experienced at the end of 2008.

BREATHE…

While I followed what she asked me, I was puzzled. I didn’t understand at all the context of why she asked me to “breathe” when I was obviously breathing.

I did, however, develop a “new” habit since then: to remember to consciously breathing regularly everyday. I still keep it until now. I can’t speak highly enough how conscious breathing habit changed my life.

 

In this episode, I invite Michelle Sabatini to share with us in-depth what #consciousbreathing is, what it does to us, especially in helping us to un-stuck ourselves from any situation anywhere, and how to do it.
