Tags: and Amazing Women, Healthy, Wise
My interview last week with three additional women who are also featured in Coach Carl’s new book, “Healthy, Wise and Amazing Women” was, once again, inspiring.
I love my job so much because I get to interact with knowledgeable, progressive, and honorable people from all over the world. I always walk away inspired…
My three awesome, inspiring Guests were:
1.) Lori Alper, Attorney, Wife, Mother, Entrepreneur, and Eco-Living Advocate.
Check her wonderful website out at www.groovygreenlivin.com
Lori and I share a passion to help others become more eco-friendly, conscious about their personal care choices, and especially making it easy for busy people to take action for both the Environment AND for their own quality of life.
2.) Sherry Segal, an award winning children’s book publisher, has created with her business partner, Wendy Wiseman, one of the most popular children’s websites on the internet! Have an interactive visit on her awesome website: www.kiboomu.com
3.) Sarah Cook. How I love her new book, “The Parents’ Guide to Raising CEO Kids”… this message is one that EVERY person, whether you even have kids or not, must read! Many of us were not taught skills from childhood to think like a CEO who also has ETHICS, and cares about others and the Environment, Animals, our oceans, and certainly about making the world a better place WHILE making money.
I loved the informative discussion with Sarah, and I realize it is never too late for even ‘big’ kids to re-learn how to think and act like an Environmental CEO.
Sarah’s website is a great place to start, get inspired with new ideas, and to ultimately take action: www.raisingceokids.com
Thank you to all of the wonderful women who have shared their challenges, triumphs, personal stories, and life lessons with my listeners and with me.
Women have to come together, for the first time in history, and start to uplift each other and break the chains of violence, abuse, oppression, and shame.
The time really is now to uplift our sisters and give a hand in helping them reach their full potential…. what a world we could have if women all over this world had equal opportunity to education, economic equality, self actualization, and fulfillment.
*This show is dedicated to the thousands of American women who campaigned [and gave their very lives] to give girls in America the right to Vote, go to school, work, earn their own money, and to pursue independence. Hundreds of women were beaten, jailed, killed, and ostracized for their bravery.
*This show is also dedicated to the millions of women around this world who continue to live in fear, oppression, abuse, and without basic human rights. May I see the day [soon] where you are finally set free.

This week, September 3, 2011, I highlighted two truly outstanding women in this world who are featured in Coach Carl Logrecco’s new book available now on Amazon.com: “Healthy, Wise, And Amazing Women.” ++++ By the way, the book is only 99 Cents and I am also featured in this book! I am certainly honored to be included in the collection of excellent women on this Earth today.
My first Guest, Debra Beck, specializes in mentoring Teens and seeks to empower young girls to see themselves as unique, worthy, awesome living beings who are very much needed in this world. Their productiveness as adult women is directly related to how they are treated, parented, and loved as young girls.
The world gives sooooo many confusing messages to women as it is. Growing up insecure and/or with parents who are not able to create an “Authentic” and respectful relationship with their own children makes the future pathway of these young people much more insecure, unstable, and even confusing.
Give your young people the tools to empower their lives. Debra Beck specializes in showing parents AND their kids just how to do this.
Check out Debra Beck’s website at empoweredteensandparents.com
My second Guest, Marina J, located in Australia, talks about becoming the “Goddess” that you were made by the Creator to be in this world. She seeks to empower adult women to strive for their greatest potential.
Transcending the horribly confusing messages from the past and stepping into your life as an enlightened and more powerful [and WISE] woman is your Birthright.
Marina talks about HOW to get to where you want to be, and she coaches women all over the world on attaining their highest empowerment.
Marina has built a successful yoga clothing business along with her wonderful “Goddess” Coaching to women.
Check Marina J out at www.marinaj.net
As Marina J has stated, “Loving yourself will transform how you treat everyone else.” It will also transform your life and you will have discernment, intuition, self-worth and decisiveness in every aspect of your life.
Making good decisions that are right for you and in line with the highest Divinity is, indeed, the key to a great life.
Thank you, Marina, Debra and Coach Carl Logrecco…. you have touched my life and I believe that everyone who discovers your messages will also be propelled into a world of fulfillment and honor.
Tags: Having Fun and Being Fulfilled In Life
Life on Earth is Finite. You can never get your time back.
What’s great about Jeanna Gabellini of MasterPeace Coaching, www.masterpeacecoaching.org, is that she teaches good people to realize the power in having fun at what you are pursuing! She awakens most of us who had fallen into the ‘grind’ of life that your truthful passions in life will propel you into a joy filled, prosperous, gratifying life legacy…. and you will most definitely be OFF that mental Merry-Go-Round…. totally free!
My show with Jeanna broadcast this past Saturday, the 14th of May on WSTC/WNLK.
“You don’t have to work long and hard to be financially prosperous and live a joy filled life.”– Jeanna Gabellini
Your inner voice is always spot on. Listen to it! Whatever the situation is, personal or business…. listen to the voice [it takes practice] and take action. You don’t have to understand why this voice is telling you something— it will become clear later on and it will protect you, guide you, and could very well save you.
Why the “Western” thinking has ignored this very important spiritual, in-tune practice in life that is a crucial part of the whole paradigm of well-being in life is tragic. Really, it is.
Jeanna reminded us to ‘start listening.’ This is more important than any expert, coach, etc.
I loved this show, and it’s in the “Archives” section of this blog for my listeners.

“Taking no chances means wasting your dreams” — Ellen Hopkins
Saturday, February 12th, 2011, I visited with Deb Marsden, the founder of Connecticut Farm Fresh Express and with Carollanne Crichton, the founder of Solavedi Ayurvedic Skin/Body Care and now Organic Perfumes….
So, where do you start in ‘Going Green’ and how do you actually begin a healing, holistic, and conscious lifestyle?
#1. You buy local.
Local, Sustainably produced Agriculture both stimulates the local economy and nourishes your body with more vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in the produce than something that was picked before it was ripe and trucked/flown from a far away destination.
The added benefit to eating locally grown produce is that is was pollenated by local BEES! This strengthens your immune system for your particular climate, and enhances your body’s ability to live in tandem with the seasons.
Buying Organic, and Sustainable is KEY to building your immune system, making your brain function clearly [yes, food plays the biggest role in your emotions, memory, and ability to think] AND building a local economy that rewards small, local farmers for their ecologically friendly practices.
I love Connecticut Farm Fresh Express www.ctffe.com because I know, for certain, that I am getting clean, organic and sustainably produced food that is both local and small in production.
I say “NO” to the big, Agribusiness Factory Farms! They are bad for the environment as they dump more toxic waste into our waterways than all other industries combined and pollute our last remaining open spaces with their toxic pesticides and horrifyingly dangerous Genetically Modified Organisms [Monsanto is one of the worst of these companies and is, by far, the most evil company that you could research on your own. Unbelievable practices that are producing never-seen-before Frankenstein chemicals into our water, air, land, bodies.]
It is proven that Organic, Sustainable, and local produce contains more phytonutrients, antioxidants, and minerals. It is also economically better for families since buying DIRECT from the Farmer as Farmer’s Markets or via Community Sustainable Agriculture groups/Co-ops is more cost effective.
Connecticut Farm Fresh Express, LLC
Deb Marsden, Owner
If you live anywhere in Connecticut, you can order from Thursday through Tuesday morning [6AM] your sustainable groceries to be DELIVERED to your door by Thursday or Friday, depending on where you live.
For my out-of-State listeners and worldwide listeners, you can google sustainable Farmer’s Markets and CSA’s/Co-ops to find an organization that gives their communities similar eco-friendly choices!
Let’s take back our world and use our economic power as consumers to send a very clear message to big-agribusinesses, factory farms, and elected Government Officials who have been bribed with campaign donations from the oil/gas, agribusiness, and cattle industries to “look the other way” at this environmental destruction, and lowered quality of life for everyone.
Factory Farms like this one pictured are nightmares for both the animals and the environment. These animals are forced to live out a miserable life stuffed into a cage with no way to turn around, exposed to abusive and virus-ridden, loud and nauseating conditions that cause them to become diseased… then they are force fed junk [like ARSENIC] to make them fatter quicker and shot with antibiotics and hormones…. this is a disease causing industry for PEOPLE, the environment [the waste is worse than any other on earth and destroys ground water], and the animals suffer unspeakably.
… Time to wake up? I believe it is time to force these factory farms to shut down.
Consumption of factory farmed flesh for humans is the PROXIMATE CAUSE of most auto-immune diseases today.
By the way, consumption of ‘meat’ [animal flesh] causes your body to become ACIDIC. Every bite…. your body turns acid. This is HOW your body gets weakened, sick, and creates fertile ground for bacteria, fungus, virus to grow.
If you decide to eat animal flesh, I urge you to purchase LOCAL, small farm, sustainable, free range, grass fed, humanely raised animals ONLY! …. And cut down your habits from daily to once a week, and then to once in a while…. your body will start to detox the acid more efficiently, and you will lose those extra pounds you’ve been needing to rid yourself of!
You need an ALKALINE body chemistry to be healthy. Green foods such as Chlorella, Wheat Grass, Dandelion, Arugula, Broccoli, Spinach…. and all GREEN VEGETABLES create the homeostasis that you need to maintain and bright mind, energy, strong immune system.
Also, try to eat at least 50% of your fruits and veggies RAW. Get a Vita-Mix [awesome] multi-speed blender. I prefer a super, well built blender that can make soups to ice cream [like the Vita-Mix] over a juicer. You get all of the good fiber and the WHOLE plant/fruit this way. Your skin will thank you!
What you put into your body counts, and what you put onto your body counts.
Want to be beautiful at every decade of your life? I do.
I love artisan companies like Solavedi Ayurvedic Skin and Body care because they are lovingly, mindfully, ecologically produced with ingredients that are directly from the earth…. God’s garden.
I believe Cleopatra and the world’s great beauties utilized God’s garden of amazing spices, herbs, vegetables, minerals and fruits to enjoy both vibrant good looks and energetic, magnetic health. After all, health IS beautiful!
Solavedi Ayurvedic massage and skin care medicinals
I believe small, organic companies are changing the taste of the consumer base for the better.
No longer do we want harmful chemicals slathered onto our bodies or factory-Frankenstein, processed anything— we want to the real, honest feeling of being at peace with the earth.
The feeling of getting back to our roots as living beings with emotions is something we have all experienced: either at the beach…. in the woods…. during a thunderstorm…. when it first snows…. the fresh air of Springtime… the warm sun on our skin…. It just feels good. You feel alive, free, balanced, happy.
You cannot reproduce this organic experience from a chemical-laden factory! Much to the chagrin of chemical, pharmaceutical, agri-businesses, and the oil/petroleum industries…. you just cannot synthesize the REAL, GOD MADE, Hand made goodness of this earth.
Our lives on this earth, and the quality of life on this earth TODAY and the question of whether we will have any life on earth in the future depends on every person to make mindful, quality choices in their daily habits.
It is more expensive to get sick. Doctors don’t have the time to truly help you, and even more horrifying, they are never taught anything about Ayurvedic healing, homeopathy, NUTRITION, chemical dangers, Chinese meridiens/medicine, or herbs, vitamins, spices, food… they have no knowledge whatsoever and no training to organically, completely heal you naturally. It does not exist in their world. They are taught about pharmaceutical drugs and surgery. They are taught to treat the symptoms and NOT the whole body… it is totally crazy when you look at the mess of our system and how it got to be so inept [and corrupt]. And by the way, they are totally blinded into allegiance to some system that keeps them in business and the same system that controls all of the medical schools [the big pharmaceutical companies]. Thus, they have no clue when it comes to the damage that vaccines, factory chemicals, pollution in food and water, and bad, processed food does to children, adults, and our family companion animals. Unacceptable!
Tags: Healthy Mind and Healthy Body, James Mapes, Know Your Destination And Live With Passion, Quantum Leap Thinking
My conversation with James Mapes, the inventor of “Quantum Leap Thinking” was only a small glimpse of what you can do with your mind to ‘quantum leap’ forward into the life you deserve.
Check out James Mapes’ website and see how you can begin to live life with intention, and being truly happy, fulfilled, and blessed: www.jamesmapes.com/Quantum Leap Thinking
www.jamesmapes.com/Quantum Leap Thinking
James Mapes’ websites are so inspiring and thought provoking, I could spend a lot of time on them, and I do!
A must-have for anyone who is looking to simply improve their life and make a positive impact on this planet while they are here is James’ book, “Quantum Leap Thinking: An Owner’s Guide to the Mind.”
There are negative forces around you everyday, but transcending the negativity and overpowering it with your God-given intuition [a MUSCLE, and you've got to use it!] along with your higher alchemy and a clear definition of your standards and values…. you will be better equipped to discern the intentions of others around you clearly and thus navigate your daily path to staying successful, achieving your purpose in this life, and living with passion.
“You control your imagination or your imagination controls you.” – James Mapes
Below I have some of James’ advice he gives, which we talked about on Conscious Lifestyles Radio this week:
1.) Make a personal commitment to yourself, because it all begins with you. Commit to treating yourself with kindness and compassion. Become your own cheerleader…. Do it for yourself, and good people will come your way.
2.) Define your own needs, limits, and boundaries. Your clarity will help you get your priorities in order to help make clear to others the kind of support they can give to you.
3.) Take an honest look at the people who are already close to you. Are you getting the encouragement and truthful, honorable friendship you are entitled to? Are they supportive and in-sync with your values, beliefs, spirituality, and healthy lifestyle?
4.) Ask for help when you really need it and be specific about what you want.
5.) Nurture your support system. e.g., GIVE BACK! Giving and volunteering… doing something to save the planet, help others is so powerful and connects you to a positive energy and positive, honorable people who share your passions to make the world a better place.
6.) Be a very good listener. Your listening without judgement and with an open heart is healing.
7.) Show gratitude. Always express gratitude to have a solid support system.
James Mapes on You Tube
I truly believe we could have peace on earth if each and every individual reassessed their own lives from where they are, seek a higher level of honor and consciousness for themselves, and then gave back to this world.
I believe we could achieve peace on earth if limiting dogmas, closed-mindedness, bigotry, abuse, manipulation, control, and prejudice were seen for the darkness that they are in this world and people made a concerted effort to overcome them via first loving themselves and living their best life with integrity…. it is all connected.

On August 9th, 2010, I had the incredible pleasure of interviewing Ruth Klein, one of the world’s best experts on how to live 100% to your full potential with joy, grace, mindfulness, and truth.
Ruth is known as the “De-Stress Diva” and a Branding/Marketing Guru. Her website is a must-read for anyone who wants to improve themselves, their business acumen, and overall effectiveness in this lifetime.
Check out Ruth’s web site and listen to her radio show, see some videos, and get the edge on your life and business: www.ruthklein.com
I got so many compliments from this terrific interview and I learned so much from our 30 minute conversation that I even signed up for Ruth’s newsletters!
I also wanted to ask Ruth on how to live your life, and continue on the path of success and fulfillment [and health, longevity, etc.] when you are faced with GRIEF or anything stressful and challenging.
Her answer was inspiring to me. I have been facing the path of grief for the past two weeks after our beloved Cat, Mina, was killed during a dental procedure at a Veterinary office we thought we could trust. The regret and replaying the ‘what if’s’ over and over in my mind have been heart wrenching.
I loved Ruth’s advice to allow the journey of grief to unfold without fighting it. She shared that in the Jewish tradition, they allow themselves to grieve for a full week and then after this week they celebrate the life of their loved one, and all of the blessings this loved one brought into their lives and into the world.
There is a light awaiting me [and everyone] after the period of allowing yourself to grieve is complete. The sadness does not leave, but the renewed understanding of the fragility and preciousness of every moment of this life actually brings perspective and celebration of this journey we have been granted by God to receive in this world.
