“Our intimate writings are far more than ‘just’ a diary; they can be a powerful spiritual practice that frees us from stuck energies, old ideas and stagnant visions.” …
“If you haven’t experienced wounding in dramatic ways from devastating loss or pain, you may think that there are those who are wounded — and then there is you.
“But the truth is we all have wounds. They are part of the human condition. And they can manifest in many ways — your insecurities, your limiting beliefs, your challenged relationships or issues with anxiety and depression.
“Not only do we all have wounds, but we also have aspects to our identities that are lived out in the shadow. And yet, these forbidden parts contain essential elements of our true nature.
“They hold wisdom, energy, creativity and power — and need to be brought into the light so we can be free and whole.
“Actors often prefer to play dark, complex or tortured characters because there is more juice, aliveness and liberation that comes when they give these shadow parts a voice.
“But how do you make this journey into your personal wounds, secrets and shadows safe? And how do you not get stuck in old stories or loops but genuinely free yourself?”

Emilie Wapnick writes:
“My resume reads like it belongs to ten different people.
“Music, film, web design, law, business, personal development, writing, dance, sexuality, education– all of these are or have been interests of mine. They come and go (and sometimes come again).
“I remember being a little kid, not knowing what I would be when I grew up. I wondered the same thing in my teen years, and again in college. Sure, all of my interests would make for wonderful careers– just not on their own.
“Would I have to settle on a “practical job” and pursue my various passions on the side or choose among my interests and just commit to one thing?
“Both options made my heart ache… I knew I could be doing more– that I had more to offer the world.
Renaissance Business is the story of how I brought all of my interests together, and how you can do the same.

Bulletproof: The State of High Performance
The Art Of Biohacking
In his Consciousness Engineering class “The Art Of Biohacking,” Mindvalley CEO Vishen Lakhiani interviewed Dave Asprey [above], founder of Bulletproof.
Vishen commented: “So I was in the heart of Silicon Valley a couple of months ago. And I was on a tour of synthetic biology labs with a bunch of major investors. And these were some of the brightest men in the world. And they started talking about how they were hacking their coffee drinking. Rather than just drink a regular cup of coffee, they were actually drinking a unique type of coffee that they called Bulletproof Coffee.
“And they were saying that this particular type of coffee was really accelerating their productivity in the morning. It was helping them think more clearer. One was even saying that this coffee made him more intelligent. So I asked what is Bulletproof Coffee, and where did you hear about it? And he told me about a man called Dave Asprey.
“Biohacking is the idea of hacking your body and brain – the physical you – to optimize your performance. And Bulletproof Coffee is just one of the many new ideas Dave has given the world that people are raving about.”
In addition to supplements, you can find multiple podcasts and posts on the site, such as “Dr. Stephanie Seneff: Glyphosate Toxicity”; “Jia Jiang: Seeking Rejection, Overcoming Fear & Entrepreneurship”; “Emily Morse (Sex with Emily): Orgasms, Kegels & Sexology”; “Robert Mckee: Master the Art of Storytelling” – and many more.
In her Fast Company article Bulletproof Coffee, The New Power Drink Of Silicon Valley, Courtney Rubin writes:
“Actress Shailene Woodley tweeted about it (“one of the greatest of human achievements”), Jimmy Fallon discussed it with Maya Rudolph on his show, and Silicon Valley execs such as Dan Scholnick, a partner at Trinity Ventures, are so addicted they travel with coffee-making equipment (whole beans, a grinder, an Aeropress, and a battery-operated milk frother), plus butter (Scholnick freezes it the night before) and the MCT oil.”
“I’ve made Bulletproof coffee on a plane at 30,000 feet,” Scholnick says, noting that a little tube of MCT oil is “under 3 ounces.” Scholnick even invited Asprey to talk to the some 50 CEOs of Trinity’s portfolio companies. “He’s had the biggest impact on my life of anyone in the past five years,” Scholnick says.”
Rubin notes Dave Asprey is opening a Bulletproof coffee shop in Santa Monica, CA, and his book The Bulletproof Diet [available on his site] includes “weight-loss testimonials from Jeremy Piven (who had his coffee on the Entourage movie set made for him by Bulletproof team members) and Brandon Routh, (aka Superman).”

The BioElectric Shield – EMF protection
Many, if not most, creative people are highly sensitive: they have the personality trait of sensory processing sensitivity, as identified by psychologist Elain Aron and other researchers.
For more information see my post Elaine Aron on the trait of high sensitivity, and other posts on the Highly Sensitive and Creative site.
One challenge for many people is high sensitivity to EMF – Electromagnetic Radiation.
Here is one woman’s story: AnnaMariah “Carolyn” Nau writes:
“I’m an empath, intuitive (aka poster child for psychic sponge person), creative, writer, jewelry designer, Reiki master… & accountant. Huh, accountant? How does that extremely left brain bit fit with the rest?
“My sense is that the groundedness of accounting and detail work helps me by keeping a framework that allows me to take flight creatively, but also have the ability to pull it in and work within our physical world. I’m passionate about sharing the BioElectric Shield with others because it changed my life.
“Among so very many other things, I am business Manager for BioElectric Shield Company and owner/designer creating healing gemstone jewelry for my artisan jewelry company Bold Bodacious Jewelry.
“BS – before Shield…I remember times when I’d go to a trade show or other crowded place and the overload of energy would be so great that I’d be spacey, have a headache, even have trouble breathing – one time I ended up out front hyperventilating and crying hysterically.
“I was so embarrassed. I had to forgo a lot of things I wanted to do because of this. I knew spiritual protection techniques and what to do, and it just wasn’t enough.
“The Shield changed my life, and that of so many other people.”
