...

Thank you, Juliet, and hi, everyone.

...

My name is Miata.

...

I was actually born in In,

...

and

...

And I left I literally walked out of my country in my very early twenties because of the war and revolution.

...

That was taking place in seventy nine and nineteen eighty.

...

And then I ended up living in Europe in Paris and going to Australia living in Australia

...

back to North America, I was originally originally in the seventies living in Us. And then I lived in Canada and a now based in S.

...

So that was the informational

...

aspect of my journey.

...

But really, the journey was from going

...

looking for something to hold on to in life outside of me to really

...

finding a place that is far more secure and permanent

...

inside of me. So that's the short version of my story, Juliet,

...

So

...

I love that. Can you just share with us why you left Ran when you walked out of your country?

...

Yes.

...

In seventy nine, there both a a revolution evolution in Iran. I

...

religious

...

fronts came and there was a k and and took over

...

the monarchy

...

then Shah Harvey Ron,

...

And as a result, the country was in a very difficult situation

...

and to make it even worse, they started a war

...

Iraq.

...

And so there was a war that was a revolution.

...

It was just a very challenging time, and I decided to leave and the airport was closed so I had to literally walk out of Answer So we took a

...

bus to the border of And Turkey and had to negotiate

...

our weight into

...

getting a bus that was waiting there to take us to Turkey because it's in the middle of nowhere that the border is not a place that you just walking with city.

...

So it was a very challenging decision to really leave everything behind and I had already started my journey of

...

losses. I suppose I lost my best friend to cancer,

...

in

...

my teens, and I lost my father

...

when I was fourteen, and he was a very

...

important

...

figure in my life besides being my father he was also my role model.

...

So it was a series of losses that was just

...

taking me to a very

...

challenging yet wonderful place.

...

Right? And I mean, I want you to give us a little bit about your ...and you know, I'm sorry about your your friend and your dad at such a young age that some ...that's big, and then in your twenties to have to leave your country. So you had a lot of

...

things happened to to form your mindset. And

...

the thing that I loved and how we connected is that you have such a powerful mindset, but such a positive mindset and such a peaceful soul mindset. And that's what really draws me to you.

...

Can you just give us a little bit about what your mindset was when you were in your twenties? I mean, that has to been

...

extremely scary.

...

What gave you that confidence and that that arrive to be like, okay. I need to leave this country.

...

You know,

...

People call it confidence our college clarity.

...

I

...

seem to obtain clarity

...

faster and an average person. And probably because

...

I felt greedy on my own quite often in my a younger age, Meaning I had to make decisions,

...

and I I had clarity, and I think clarity is the basis

...

for what people call confidence.

...

I knew I looked at the situation. I mean,

...

probably people know by now,

...

Has become a very

...

religious and a religiously driven country. So when they started telling ghost what we need to in how we need to be.

...

And it wasn't that I was so much sensitive about that, but that was symbolic of where the country was going.

...

And how much the personal freedom

...

of was going to be compromised. So I decided that that's not for me, and I cannot do it. But when you're younger, you don't really evaluate the crisis that you pay for what you want. But, you know, the price was high.

...

But also, the gifts were high. And I think one stage and I can't honestly recall exactly when it was. I decided that

...

I I can really just make a decision. I was the standing on the fork, and I said, either I would be the victim and really try to tell you the story of how bad I have it or I can really use them, and I wasn't that clear as I'm saying it now, but I really remember the feeling

...

it it's funny. I was invited to speak to a graduating school because I teach up Q Ucla

...

and at did the Ucla, and they they asked me to talked about my journey

...

and my, you know, life story. And I said which version would you like?

...

And they said, what what do you mean? I said I can give you a version that will leave you all sobbing.

...

I can also give you a version that it can get you all cited about your own future and where you going, which version would you like? And I think by then, I had delivered my message was irrelevant what story I was going to share it's just like that. You need to really see

...

where you what you wanna do with this ingredients

...

that life is offering you. And that is only your decision. Nobody can make that decision for you. So I think I decided

...

I'm going to use it in a good way and make a really good food. Out of the ingredients store, ...oh

...

my gosh. I I ...every time I speak to you, I just ...I mean, that just gave me the chills because you painted that picture in my mind. Right? I was, like, okay. I know the heart.

...

I I mean, you touched on a little bit when we've spoken.

...

But then how you've come out and what you have done

...

for others.

...

And one thing that you said to me that

...

I I I wrote down. I actually have a another sticky right next to me.

...

You wrote passion, followed you because I asked you

...

what, you know, how did you follow a passion And you said passion followed me. Can you give us a little bit of insight into that?

...

Yes. Room has a line that says

...

here my lover

...

sitting in my room. And here I am going around the world looking for her. And in a way, all that we are seeking and looking for is right there inside of us, all we need to do to access it you said, so how did you find your passion? I said, my passion found me, and and really, I see that in in a sense in every aspect of my life,

...

the passion, the happiness, the gross, the wisdom,

...

it's all within us The question is

...

have we really cleared the way to connect with them? They're not lost, because we are lost we always think like, it's my passion that it's lost it's my wisdom that it's not there. They are all waiting there, like a very

...

pride less lover waiting for us, but we have created so many curtains

...

so many obstacles

...

between us and that, which awaits us and that which will help us. So my passion really found me. I realized that all of these so called pain

...

and suffering that I have gone through. They are the way for me. And they're the ones that have really fed me. So I incorporated

...

in this going in

...

kind of journey into what I was doing outside of me, which was I was a coach in a trainer,

...

and I just couldn't included

...

all these inner journeys. I mean, thirty six years ago, as you can appreciate Juliet,

...

it wasn't about mindfulness mindfulness was not a that you could use, especially

...

in the corporate world, they would have said what?

...

But they didn't need to know I mean, my ...and if you see the list of my clients, that were all, like, top, whatever. I mean, not even five hundred, maybe fifty

...

corporations

...

at least then. And

...

I just said, okay, I just incorporated in in what I'm teaching them and how I'm coaching them. And

...

they will know the value. It doesn't greedy matter what it's called or would label I give them.

...

Right? And I think I just think that's so

...

inspiration and so ...I mean, I could literally listen to you speak all the time because you every

...

thing that you say, I'm I'm like, yes.

...

Yes. Because it is such. It's so true. It you don't have to have a word. It's the way you deliver it. And one thing that

...

you also said and I hope it's okay if I touch on this because of,

...

you know, just ...as you know, this is super close to my heart. But you were telling me and I did not know this before that you are deflect.

...

And

...

I wanna know how much of your dyslexia do you think?

...

Drove you to

...

where you are today, what were the struggles of it in your early years? And then how do use it as your superpower because I know we both said that, like, I use my dyslexia as my superpower because I know it makes me and helps me think a little different than everyone else, which gives me something more to share. So can you touch on that?

...

Sure.

...

So ...that's

...

okay.

...

You know, I never knew what I had. I knew I was different as a child. I wasn't diagnosed with it. Until I think I was in my forties or maybe late thirties when I was in Canada.

...

And but I knew there was something different. I never like I was a very good student, but if this teacher gave instructions,

...

I would just beg ...you know, my friends. What what what you what did they say? What what why are we supposed to do? I knew there was something different.

...

And, you know, I think that became the basis for celebrating

...

my different ness.

...

And not being ashamed of it. And I think that was the first

...

gift that I received from being the celestial event

...

even event to ...I i had no idea that I had something that was called that I didn't again. I didn't have a name for it. But differently, I knew there's a different way of of me understanding. I would then, which was not fashionable, especially in grade one.

...

Excuse

...

was taking notes of of what they were saying. And if you looked at my notes, they were very different that what teacher was saying, I was understanding them through colors

...

to shapes I would draw as they were talking

...

and making sense of things I would put them in categories

...

that nobody could relate to, but I could understand. So that was the initial years of

...

me working with the dyslexia.

...

And what really helps and this is, again, another story. I came from an academically

...

quite ...you know,

...

good kind of family, and I was the youngest child.

...

So I remember when I went to school,

...

the teachers would recognize my last name either my brother or my sister

...

would have been their students before, and and they would say, are you as a smart as your brother and sister?

...

And I I didn't know what to say. I was going to say I don't even understand what you're teaching.

...

But, okay. If you think I should be smart,

...

maybe i'll I'll be smart. And that's that ...I found ways to understand what they were saying

...

because I saw I needed to be smart because I had that last name. This is something that would have really worked against me as a child, especially a young child,

...

but somehow,

...

And I don't know what you wanna call that. I never saw

...

this journey this life, even as a child,

...

something that was like, against me that it was something that was there to hurt me even though I could really. If you could look at the event,

...

it's like, really?

...

Yes. Really? I really felt ...so

...

you no. I have I have to interrupt you that because I think that's something that's one of the other reasons why we can

...

because there is everyone is built different. Right? And everyone is

...

has something to share, and it's funny because I was just talking to about my son. Who's ...who's this is very deflect. I mean, he has struggled, but he's also has so many talents,

...

and he looks at his talent because that's how we have brought him up Right? I say them. Yes. This is the struggle with this. But guess what? Look how good you are at this. I mean, look how good do are this and everything. He literally just grew ...he's

...

gonna be sixteen, and he's taller than my husband now. So it it's so funny to just see him. He's like, i'm the tallest and the family. And

...

that's all. But we're all we're all. Like, it's it is a ...it's it is something the way you are born neatly, there are more positive people

...

out there, and I really truly believe that And but it is something you could also learn. And it is something that you can change your mindset about things. You can look at the glass.

...

Half full instead of half empty.

...

And I really believe that is something that everyone really every day should should do. Right? Okay. I'm looking in a situation. How can I find the positive? I tell my kids all the time. When you come from when they were little and they come from school, I would say, always say, tell me five things that were really good that happened. And then I would always ......was there anything that was, you know, not that good? Like, you know, let let's look at this. And every day, even if you're having a crappy day, I want you to find something beautiful whether it's even the little flower that's in in the ground. Right? That you just walked by and you're like, oh, that pretty that lone flower, but I want you to find something positive every day because it's just gonna make your day better. If you look at the world, through negative goggles,

...

you're always going to find negative things, but when you look through it positive,

...

the things that you find and the things that you maybe wouldn't have seen

...

are so impactful and they could change your life.

...

And so that was one thing that I

...

that I ...said that I really, I think that we've connected so much on that because I was the same school

...

was really thanks guys. School is really hard for me, but I was a really good athlete and a really good friend and I just turned it around. Okay. This is where I struggle, but this is what I'm really good at. And I was lucky you fortunate enough to have parents that celebrated

...

the things that we were good at.

...

They didn't, you know, have Rose Holo goggles on the things that we struggle that. You know what? You're not so good at this. This is something that you have to work a little harder on, But guess what that's life.

...

And so I love that outlook that you have and my anyone that's in the audience if you guys wanna come up,

...

mutual loves, you know, conversation. She's a storytellers so she loves

...

asking, you know, hearing people's question. So if anyone wants to come up, you literally that little react, sign anyone that's new to this app. You can

...

pick a reaction. Let's do ...so if you guys put a heart in your reaction or you can ask to come up, And if you put a hearts in the action, and

...

the in there, I will be able to do that, But you can also

...

pull yourself up by hitting

...

the two little lines there. And also, if you guys are new to this, you can broadcast to the world. So we can get meet your story out there to inspire more people because she's gonna go into

...

what she is doing now and how she is helping us. She said she has, you know, clients that were in the top fifty

...

and the things that she was able to do in corporations and the impact that nitro that has had is really, really wonderful. So,

...

again, me. So thankful that you're here and taking the time.

...

Can you give us a little bit about? And I know we talked about you know how your your passion found you and all of that. But how like where did it it start? And then how did you build

...

your company?

...

And and what what are you doing

...

It started me doing coaching when I actually at this stage, I was in

...

Australia, Proof, Australia.

...

Living in there

...

and doing coaching and coaching was so fresh and knew that every time I said I'm a coach because I was young woman and because I was slim. They said, oh, gymnastics.

...

Because that's was the only thing they could say. Coaching was not, like, what it is now believe me. And I would say, no. And then I was really puzzled why everybody thinks I've been fantastic coach, and then I figured it out. So I started doing

...

coaching and training, and I have no idea

...

what happened that that came through, but I remember that you had a

...

software company

...

with with my husband then ...and

...

they ...I started making comments about And know don't remember exactly It was an American company that was my find.

...

And I was able to make a comment about their team,

...

and it was a older man who owns the company, and he said, how did you know this about my team? And I said I was observing them yesterday when we spent a day with them. And he said you need to be a coach.

...

And I said, what is that? He said that you need to be coaching because what you saw in them is something that My Hr department has seen in them for a long time. So that's how the coach came. Wow.

...

That's cool. That's really cool. Right? Really amazing how life works and

...

so I had many teachers, and he was one of them, but I don't think he knew that. So I started. I said, okay. So I started doing coaching, so I started, of course, you're always a start way by your friends and, you know, clients that you new, and then it's really to cough. I realized that that was my gift I really can see through people and and their issues because let's go back to the dyslexia

...

because of my dyslexia.

...

So

...

person comes in and tells me about their issue. What I see is a pattern.

...

I actually have a board

...

in my office that I draw their journey.

...

And then I say, okay. It seems like this is and they always are subscribed.

...

If I tell you how many people say, did you research me or did like my partner or my

...

whoever referred me to you the date say something about it and I actually have the policy. I never

...

research. Thank you. I never researched my clients because that's you know, I've got a lot of celebrity clients. You don't wanna know things that I can find out through Google.

...

So

...

it's that

...

patrick that helps me when you talk to me, I see the patterns. So as a result, I can actually

...

assist people far far better.

...

I wanted to just say something about the positive nest that you talked about, and I wanna bring in a bit bit of a

...

maybe in

...

neuroscience to it. So there are three aspects of us that makes us us

...

one is genetics that which are not changed.

...

Then is the environments that includes, as you said, the family, the parents the school we went to

...

And the third aspect is what we don't pay as much attention to, and that is our free will and the free will, and this is my name for. The free will is what allows us to use

...

abuse or not use

...

what genetics

...

and environment

...

has or hasn't

...

given us.

...

So when we he really take charge, it's radio it's about more of a choice than just putting it as you said, happy face on it. It's not about that because of that other than that, then we will never resolve any issues. We just say everything is fine. But

...

a really taking charge of that free will and understanding

...

that at any given moment,

...

no matter how desperate we may feel in life, we have a choice,

...

and that is very important aspect of the journey.

...

Anyways, long story short,

...

that king, I think. I took it with me to four continents

...

from Australia.

...

To

...

North America.

...

And

...

and it just, you know, all ward of mouth, I have never ever spent one dollar for advertising,

...

I started providing services

...

and doing training and one thing led to another and

...

here I am. I actually, what I do is now I teach at Ucla mindful awareness research center, school of nor of science.

...

And human behavior.

...

And I have a private practice where I coach

...

individuals and work workplaces to live and work more happy

...

and peacefully and productively.

...

And I also have an app that

...

hopefully,

...

helps people. It's a mindful living app. It's not a

...

meditation app. It's teaching you how to live mindful true story

...

and I have a lights on podcast. There's so many things I do do I won't bore your listeners to about. Find out But I was gonna say, you never ...you never are gonna bore anyone. You are so fantastic.

...

And I ...so I do want use to the have of the podcast. So what is your app? Called.

...

It's called in air Map one word. It's available ios app store. It's very affordable.

...

It's nine nine cents a month.

...

But it's about really

...

understanding

...

very difficult concepts. Here's dyslexia coming to the rescue again.

...

Really simplifying

...

the neuroscience and the wisdom of mindfulness

...

into short stories

...

and these are stories are two ways. People can share their stories, which I really love to hear from

...

anybody who's listening

...

to this podcast to this interview. If you have a story a mindful story, good story that can motivate others, please please consider sharing it with us. You can go to inner map one word,

...

slash your stories.

...

Oh, that's amazing. And so we do I I do wanna also touch on because. I know you said that your father was a very important person in your life.

...

Could be because you do have such

...

such soul and such ...and,

...

you know, when people always say, like, an old soul and and you really do was were your parents ...did they have that coaching

...

neck? Like, was that something that was natural to them? And so you saw

...

that? Or is this something that was just really innate view.

...

Again, I think it was a combo. It was something that my my grandmother was a story teller and she gave me a lot of wisdom through simple stories. My next door neighbor was a story tell her any teacher, and he became my teacher.

...

My father and he left very early in my life, but I always saw him as a deep

...

deeply kind person.

...

I saw him bringing people. I never forget that. He brought this old woman home. And and we were feeding her in Read respects being respectful to her. And I I asked him My said who is she And he said he's ...she's like my mother, and I knew his mother had passed. So we really treated her, like, you know, respectfully and and when she left, you know, we gave her a lot of gifts.

...

And and later on in life, I asked my that who was that woman?

...

And he said she was just a bigger, and she said that she was hungry as I was coming home. I brought her home

...

I mean,

...

that's beautiful. Yeah. If you see how I treat homeless people, I mean, in the ...it it it really is true that environment

...

does help us. I mean, in the pandemic, I I was going every night after my food to share some food simple. I mean, not nothing big. Nothing

...

you know, amazing. Just just whatever I had I would pack

...

because I knew there were ran many people on the streets and nobody was going to restaurants to help them

...

just simple things that you learn and

...

you become grateful for in life just seeing kindness.

...

And,

...

yes, of course, they did. But I always say teachers teach us two ways. Some teach us what to do and some teachers what whatnot to do and I respect all of them the same way.

...

Yes. Oh my gosh. I love that. I'm I was just telling someone a story today because

...

because of my struggles I was the athlete. Right? So I that was where I was really ...I really excel.

...

And I

...

never thought of myself as creative. There must have been a teacher and our teachers somewhere down because it wasn't my parents. It must have been somewhere

...

that they ...you know, said, oh, you're not

...

you're not creative, Stick with the athletics. That's what you're good at. And so I told myself a story all these years that I wasn't creative.

...

And I I look back now, and I ...it's it's so ...it's

...

as you said, teachers can ...and then I have the teachers that told me certain things that I stuck with that were positive.

...

But I I was just selling this friend. I said, it's really funny because I didn't think I was creative. I literally would always say, oh, I'm not creative.

...

I went to college

...

for

...

my major was corporate fitness because, again, it was the fitness, that I was good at. So I was like, okay. That's what I'm gonna do. And some ...and I played two sports, and I was getting recruited by one of the top schools and one of my sports, but I couldn't get my Sat up. I took about my token that my token then I took them and I couldn't get them up, and I remember being really disappointed, but also at a young age being like, okay, there's a reason for this.

...

And I know I probably would've have failed out if I went to that big school. I went to a smaller school. I had support, and I actually ended up getting on the honor roll

...

because I changed my major

...

And because when I was in corporate fitness, I had to take anatomy and physiology.

...

I

...

very quickly, that's where a lot of my struggles were I realized, oh, okay. This is gonna be tough, and I then tweaked my back,

...

and it was at the same time. And I said, oh my gosh. I changed my

...

my major to communications, radio television and film.

...

Now I still did not see myself as creative, and I was creating movie I was writing movies. I was directing movies. I was acting in movies.

...

I was writing

...

pilots and getting, you know, getting grades on that. I was on the radio station learning things. But what I decided what I wanted my major to be because, again, I was giving myself that story that I wasn't creative.

...

I fell in love with the advertising sales part.

...

And the advertising sales part, I was like, oh, this is so cool. You can, kind of have your hand in, like, stuff that's creative because I find it interesting, but I can then do the sales, which I'm a people person. I can really connect with people and that's what I love. So that's what I did. Still to see myself as creative even after creating all that stuff in college and getting on the honor role and getting a's and all of those classes.

...

When my kids were little, I used to say the same thing. I am not creative. So they would come to me. Oh, mom. I have this our product. Nope. I'm not creative. You gonna figure that out on your own. Not creative not creative. I was the mom that was like, no. Let's go run, jump and skip and, you know, dig in the dirt and find worms and, you know, do mud pies and, you know, the coloring and stuff like that. I didn't have. I also said a lot of energy. Have a lot of energy so to my kids, so we just didn't do that much stuff. Every once in a while Would say, hey. Let's color, and I would do a little bit of it.

...

But it wasn't until a number ...how mean, like, when I started my podcast and maybe a little bit before that, I read a book.

...

And as I read this book, and I almost didn't read it because it was about writing

...

being an author. And I was like, oh, no. I'm not creative my just like say. You know, this is not.

...

And all of a sudden, it hit me.

...

That I've been telling myself a story.

...

That is not true that I am very creative. And literally, when my kids were little, I used to have all these characters. They had adventures

...

And I had this whole story like. I never wrote it down

...

because my but my my three kids literally would sit there, and I would tell them these stories. I never thought of storytelling.

...

As an art,

...

which is so insane to me because now I'm like, oh my gosh. I am so creative just because I don't ...I still can't draw.

...

Check figures.

...

But it's what we tell ourselves and sometimes with society or teachers tell us that we do, and they don't sometimes know the harm

...

that that can actually

...

put on someone and they don't do it on purpose. Obviously, they're not trying to harm you. But sometimes just three little words, You're not creative. We don't don't even know if that's three. But you know what I'm getting?

...

Changed my whole mindset for a very long time.

...

And so ...but then, again, there's the teachers that teach you something, and it sticks with you forever.

...

Right?

...

So we, I love that. Mhmm. And also, it's the power of a definition.

...

So

...

define

...

talented

...

creative.

...

What does that even mean? I always say to people, do you worry?

...

They say, oh, yeah. A lot. I say you have a very creative mind.

...

That's what worrying it is. I'm making up something

...

it is not there.

...

And and, you know, I can tell you oh this will happen and that will happen. That's creativity

...

except that's a creativity that is not managed.

...

So we want to manage that creativity. There is no person on this planet Earth that is not creative.

...

Everybody is creative.

...

The question is

...

where and how can I work with my creativity?

...

We have

...

really, very limited and restricted

...

definition

...

of creativity.

...

I have to be able to draw or as you or paint

...

or or just like, something that is called creativity,

...

but creativity really means giving birth

...

to that, which was not there before. That's what creativity is.

...

I love that. And so true. I love when you of that wearing thing because that's so funny. And I always say the people,

...

why worrying about things you can't control.

...

If you can't control it, you have to let whether you believe in god or the universe, you have to just

...

believe that it's all gonna be worked out. And so don't put your energy into that because you can't control it.

...

True.

...

You can command your mind, but you can ask control events.

...

Exactly. Exactly.

...

Meet this is amazing. Okay. So can you tell everyone again where to find you?

...

Just go to miata mesh dot com, or go to Apple store in map.

...

And I would be right there. We also have some ...I think ...sorry. I'm not very good at this because I you know don't do this.

...

We we have a store for the

...

courses that I have done before, and they're recorded. They're there. But I think me dot com will have all that information,

...

and

...

I'm more interested to hear from people who are here if they have any questions I may

...

pretty

...

skill coach. So we let's see if you have any question yes that can help you with Amanda James,,

...

Philip, Julian,

...

Patrick.

...

One of you guys come up and and and ask me or even just join the conversation.

...

This is ......you know, me i to tell you this is a new apps. So sometimes people are a little

...

hesitant to jump on, but we will be having you back on online us live many many times and, you know, as this app grows,

...

I know more and more people will be like, okay. I can jump on stage. I can ask question or I can

...

join in. So any of you guys wanna jump in, ask a question or just

...

you know,

...

you know, again,

...

give us some insight on what you feel like, what do you think mindfulness means? Or what do you feel like?

...

You know, what what have you learned in your journey or maybe you gave yourself a story? Like, I did that I was not creative,

...

and you can come up and and share something to that extent.

...

Mitch, and I can continue talking. I will just let give you guys a little bit of

...

my background. I am Juliet. I am the host of your next stop with Julia, which is on all the Apple players, and this y live is a program that is directly here for

...

Fireside, and I'm really excited because we have the likes of Each,

...

which, again, I will be having her back and once a month,

...

I'm going to be having Cynthia georgia i gonna be hosting your room,

...

and that is going to be housed for the Nfl spouse.

...

And I'm gonna be doing a certain segment on that, and that will be here once a month. You guys now that we can, you know, schedule stuff you guys will see. But Cynthia created

...

Nfl thread. She is an x Nfl wife,

...

and her husband, Michael's Pundits played in the Nfl for twelve years. And

...

she created his app because every time they moved to a new city,

...

she realized

...

she's felt lost. She didn't have the connect. And so she created this app and we actually partnered.

...

So I can coach some of these Nfl thousands through some of their

...

struggles or journeys. Also, I have an online course that helps you tap into your creative passion and turn it into a business.

...

So I'm going to be coaching some of these Nfl wise that are, you know, displaced. They go and they follow their husbands and maybe they or their their boyfriends or whatever it is, and they've maybe had a business for starting a business, and then they've had to start all over again. So that, again, is going to be here

...

every month, and you guys will get the the notification but if you wanna listen to Cynthia story, that is on your next stop that actually came out today, so you can go to any of your podcast

...

players.

...

So I think we have a a shy audience miata, and I apologize for that, but I know that, again,

...

we will have you on here more, and and we're gonna have you on your next stop where you're gonna be able to share your story so people can go and listen

...

to all of your journey and all of that.

...

That sounds great. But I just wanted because you said mindfulness, We never defined the mindfulness. So if you allow me, I'm just gonna define mindfulness

...

they may ...because it's a word that it's used and and

...

sometimes

...

misunderstood word. But mindfulness,

...

I have crew coined to my own definition

...

from which I teach and go, mindfulness is

...

acceptance

...

and awareness.

...

Of our present moment experience

...

with curiosity

...

and compassion. So five keywords there, which is awareness

...

presence,

...

acceptance,

...

and curiosity

...

and compassion. So these are the four

...

foundation

...

of mindfulness

...

and my invitation to your shy audience

...

is that if you start with any of these words, just one, pick one and try it for a week. And see if that's

...

somehow

...

influences the way you show up in in your life,

...

to pick curiosity

...

and and just be curious

...

more than you are now

...

compassion

...

and see that sort of helps you in a different way or presence or awareness or acceptance

...

of that, which you cannot change, of course, and see how and if that influences the way you show up.

...

We try love that. And you know what use to ...and that is so important.

...

So important to focus on one of those things. Because as you said, that is so cool. If someone is not as curious. Right? They they go through life and they just have their heads down and they, you know, just plow through. I mean, I think

...

the pandemic had a lot of people pause and stop and be able to kind of realize you know what? I'm just going into speed, and I'm not ever stopping.

...

One of the things that I've say to my kids and my husband and I ...now, sometimes get eye, but I I always love it. Is pause your body.

...

Pause your body and pause your mind

...

and, you know, I am someone that constantly is moving forward, but I do allow myself each day.

...

Just to stop and take a breath.

...

And look what's around me. See my surroundings.

...

Who was there? Like you said with the homeless who is there that maybe needs help that is one of the lessons that I teach my kids all the time if you ask them, what is one thing your mom always says to you?

...

And it's always to be aware of your surroundings.

...

See who's is around you because there could be someone that needs your help

...

or there's someone that could actually help you. And if you're aware of what's going on around you,

...

you're gonna make better choices.

...

And you also could see something that you never realized you can see if you just pause for a moment.

...

And the curious thing, I love that me because I am ...that's one of the reasons why I love doing my podcast. That's why I love coaching. It's because I'm am so curious.

...

I love to learn. I love to hear people's stories. I love to hear what other people are doing because I always can learn something from them, and there's always someone that I am connected to

...

that either can learn or teach someone else. Right? So I'm always networking because I love that aspect of it. So I just end the compassion part. It's so important because so,

...

again, I think the pandemic really helped shift things a little bit there, but so many people are just thinking of themselves not thinking of what you know, someone else is doing, whether it's they don't believe in their politics or they don't believe in their medical choices.

...

And everyone has their own opinion, and if we can all respect and have a little compassion for each other,

...

the world is just gonna be a better place.

...

Meet, what do you think about any of that? Oh, I agree completely. And what the pause that you mentioned that you invite to your family members to do is

...

an amazing tool for being present that that's one of the major tools because what that really means that we are normally, either in the past or in the future

...

and

...

do not show up in the present moment talking about the passion that I was talking about, to find

...

anything, all those wonderful

...

wisdom passion energy that is within you, You need to connect to it. And for that, you need to show up in this present moment.

...

And when we are not in the moment, I always say it's almost like

...

universities a

...

delivery service, like Fedex is coming to the door,

...

and our address universal of address is our body. So when I'm not there to receive it, where am I either in the pastor future,

...

then I cannot receive that package that gift that is there for me to be you know, using.

...

So pause

...

is the the space between activities

...

whether it's thinking or moving.

...

And without that pause, we really cannot

...

be present

...

and or be aware of what's going on.

...

Within us and what's going on

...

outside of us in our environment. So it's a great tool and great advice that you give your children.

...

And, Did, it's so funny because, you know, I have teens now and pre teens and and teams

...

and

...

sometimes just roll there. And they're like, ugh, mom. Okay. Well, pause are bodies.

...

And it ...you know, there's been a couple times where my husband has said to me, like, just in the moment. I think you need to pause your body and I'm like, okay. You're right. You're right. Like, especially if we're getting worked up about something,

...

just pause ...because it's all gonna be okay. It's all gonna work out. We just have to

...

open ourselves up and allow

...

things to happen.

...

But when you have that positive mindset, when you have

...

the ability to see the positive in the situation. It just changes everything, and I think it's so important. So, again, anyone in the audience wants to jump up and

...

join the conversation. We have about five more minutes, and it you be short, this is actually a really safe space. It's a great place

...

to kinda test if you are new to this app and you're, like, how does it work? It's a, you know, really great great place. This is also goes out. And as you know, this is housed on here so people can listen to it. There's a bunch of us that were broadcasting live. And so your question gonna go out there too. So it's actually kinda fun, not to scare you, But

...

meet, again, I just think it's so special what you're doing.

...

And I love how you found

...

or having your passion found you and followed you, and I you just have so much

...

insight and so much wisdom

...

I just ...I I really appreciate you, and I'm just so grateful that we have been connected.

...

Thank you. I I really feel the same way, and you write. When you do what you youtube with passion, I I never understood retirement

...

concepts

...

because it's like we really work hard and we really really run ourselves down to the ground

...

for a promise of a day that we will retire.

...

And I'm thinking, I'm ...I mean, I'm in my sixties, early sixties, but in my sixties, and and I I just love what I do. I don't see retirement

...

as as something that I would like to do. I may choose to have different hours and different

...

way of

...

providing

...

the services that I do provide, but really ...I mean, why would one retire from something that they love to do?

...

And that that concept only

...

was born in the industrialized

...

world in modern life that we you know, the higher and case retirement,

...

which is a very interesting concept if if you have balance,

...

in your day, if you have passion that you are serving and servicing,

...

then

...

retirement is not even a concept that may be appealing

...

to us. So ...that because says so true. And, you know, and I didn't even think about it that way, but you're so right. And that's one of the reasons why I created the course that I did, and it just came to me as I was walking. I was like, I need to help people figure out how to find their passion.

...

Some people don't know how to do it or they don't allow themselves to do it or they don't

...

And think phillips gonna come up or they don't.

...

They just don't give themselves enough space to be like, you know what? I have something that could help someone else. Even if this is one thing I say, all the and i'm so I'm gonna bring you up is even if you help one person,

...

that one person's gonna help their people that are around them, their their immediate family. And then that person's gonna help the people and it trickles down, and it's so important if you have something in your mind that you've always wanted to create podcast, a write of book, a blog

...

or, you know, you you make jewelry or you make greeting cards. There is a place that you can do this, and get and get of finances for it. Right? There's a place for all of it, and you can also help the more that you

...

follow that passion, follow that fire,

...

the more people you're gonna ...you're gonna be able to help. So

...

I think that's just so important. So Philip, I'm gonna invite you up

...

because you do have the hearts and i see the little bubble, but you might be like, no. I'm not.

...

Hold on. Let's see.

...

Yeah. I well for yeah. Thank you both for this conversation. I very much enjoyed it, and I'm really grateful for the conversation.

...

And I just wanted to ...more than anything say, so, thank you, first of all, but also, I mean, I method is pastor, and this is something that I've really taken up in the last five years just working on mindfulness.

...

Both personally, and then also, in the way that I teach and inviting people into,

...

what I was taught with centering prayer, which the more I study sitting the prison when I realized it's just another name for a lot of different

...

practices that I've seen in various religions as well. And the the impact that it has on of the people that I have the opportunity to teach with is

...

is just astonishing whenever we start with a centering prayer and how it just changes our ability to be present in such a space.

...

And it's become really a a big way of my life. Because I do it with my kids as a bedtime ritual as well, where they're eight six, eight and six, and we ...that's kinda how we wind down a night is by taking a time to do

...

meditation at night, and I just I'm just really grateful for these conversations you're happening, and it's ...again, I don't know what what faith i'll fall into, but I found a huge impact in the way that

...

my faith is expressed and it allows me to be a a leader for people in faith too using practice and mindfulness. And I wish we have more time for come station, but I know there will be more of these coming up soon, and I look forward to being conversation

...

continually about this nature. So thank you so much.

...

Thank you, Philip. And, yes. That's true. I mean,

...

that's what just think about what prayer is. Prayer is, first of all, you take some time off from activity. That's number one. Too is that you connect to something beyond yourself, whatever you wanna call that collective consciousness

...

universe, God, doesn't matter. People get stuck on names. You get connected to something beyond yourself. And then you'll really get connected to that, which you wish either for yourself or for others.

...

So all of these ...I mean, it's such a simple thing and people do that. But if you really realize what you're doing,

...

and that's what treating matters, The connection,

...

the

...

identification

...

of that which you want and that breach that you are really

...

creating as a pause that Juliet was, I think, referring to that we take the pause from activities, and that's what holidays days are. That's why we have holy days. They were holy days

...

because that's when you could be holes even though the writing and the spelling is different.

...

Really, it's about becoming holes taking

...

some time off from the busy

...

of our day, which is all about mainly survival

...

and paying attention

...

to thriving, which is connection to something

...

beyond ourselves. So thank you for sharing Philip. That was very, very interesting.

...

Yes. And you know, and I love because the Philip, i we do the same. We we ...you know, ever since my kids were little, we would sit and pray. And

...

the it's it's really sweet because I remember there was someone in my sister's community that there was a child that had

...

cancer and so we would add them to our prayers and

...

the the child passed away, unfortunately, but I remember

...

probably when my ...you know, my kids were a little older, and i I could hear them saying their prayers and that little child was still in there prayers

...

because it was, you know, some ...it was ritual. It was like, we had created this. And I still say,

...

the same, you know, the same start to my prayers before I go goats to bed at night as well. And it is it's ...you know, it's a nice

...

ritual, but it's also a nice as you said, each

...

to pause and just to think. And so

...

But you know, that's wonderful. And Richard, do you have to leave at the top of the hour?

...

No. I have till

...

fifteen more minutes. I I create gaps fifteen in my activity

...

that's.

...

And I'm back ...I'm actually okay as well. So, Philip, if you did wanna continue a little bit, we are okay on that.

...

But you also don't have to to

...

So total ...I

...

have to run into another the call i met right now, actually. But thank you so much for conversation. I appreciate it. Of course, And thank you for jumping on the stage, the Me can kind of really get the whole sense of this wonderful

...

new app fireside.

...

Let me, try. Yes Love it. Isn't it? It's wonderful.

...

You know, you, and I will talk side about how you can have your rooms as well because

...

or your chats because you definitely have a lot to for this this community and the this is for storytellers. This is for. I know you you have a very full plate as well.

...

Adding another thing might be very difficult, but

...

I just wanted to, ...again, thank you so much for joining us here on y

...

live.

...

It is my pleasure to, you know, have you here and just listen to your wisdom because you are such a special

...

person in a special soul, and I'm just, again, so grateful to be connected. So thank you so much, Me, and

...

can you just shout out? I know we've started it a couple times, but you never know when people are joining.

...

And especially in the beginning because of my silly pause,

...

just shout out where you are where people can find you, and

...

and and then we can go from there.

...

Sure. It's my name Full name Miata, mesh m i t r a m a n e h dot com, And all the information is there. And by the way, we can actually

...

include prayers in our daily

...

living

...

and not just do it in the specific time. As we drive as we walk on the streets of life,

...

you can just randomly that's what I do. I just randomly

...

look at people and whoever whoever looks like, You know, they may need a bit of help. I just send them loving kindness without a been knowing their story, and that's how me to sort of center, and and remember our collective together unity

...

and hopefully, energetically, it helps somebody.

...

So help does not need to be actual physical health. This is also

...

energetic health that we can send to people as we driving as we see something happening.

...

I hear and

...

these days more than I would hear other days. And I just ...every time I just take a pause, take a deep breath, and I say, may they be safe, may they be okay, Make whatever videos use gets resolved in the best way possible. So it can be incorporated

...

also in our Media living.

...

Yes. I love that so much, Which,

...

again, thank you so much, and I just love your wisdom and it's so true.

...

You know, again, just pause our bodies and think of other people. You know, it's not just all about us. It's what we can share and help. So I'm gonna bring the weight spot up, but guys, thank you so much for joining Y live.

...
