#28 - The Science Behind Intuition with expert Sunil Godse

Sunil Godse recognized the true power of intuition years ago and after learning how to truly trust it, he successfully helped to grow a number of startups to a combined $20 million in revenues before moving onto a very successful career as a business coach, where he helps companies increase their productivity by using business intuition to establish trusted professional relationships.

He used his past learning and experience to write two critically acclaimed books, Fail Fast. Succeed Faster. and GUT! and took his message on the road, speaking to tens of thousands of people around the world and giving them actionable advice on how to trust their intuition in any situation.

He started the Intuitionology project to help people understand how their intuition behaves so that they recognize their unique set of intuitive signals that are telling them what the right decision is in any situation so that they lead a life full of happiness and success.

His mission is very simple – to help change as many lives as he can, one person at a time.

In this episode, we talk all about what Intuition actually is, including the 4 types of intuition as well as the 4 hurdles to trusting our gut, why it’s important to trust that gut instinct, and what could happen if this aspect of one’s life is never strengthened. Sunil shares case studies to support the science behind Intuition and do not fret as he also shares the first step to beginning to harness and trust your gut.

#19 - Sober Series recap: 10 Tips to Stay Sober Over the Holidays

#19 - Sober Series recap: 10 Tips to Stay Sober Over the Holidays

10 Tips to Stay Sober Over the Holidays

  1. Gather like-minded community. If not available in person-there are a lot of amazing online communities focussing on alcohol free living.
  2. For holiday parties; personally, I don’t talk about not drinking at all, and when somebody offers a drink, I say that I first want to hydrate, or get a sparkling water with lemon. Some people like to bring Alcohol Free beer or so.
  3. Initiate exercise dates. You might find that the Alcohol Free you prefers more 1-1 dates or introversion. To deal with possible FOMO or loneliness, set up walk or exercise dates, coffee dates, cookie baking dates, movie dates..
  4. Get into a new hobby, channel that creativity into something new
  5. Seek a coach/professional who can help you face the family triggers, learn how to self soothe and reprogram your mind
  6. Meditate to center yourself and gain clarity about how you want to handle family/parties/temptations
  7. Get really into your “why”. Don’t let shame or a bad drunken fight be the only fuel. That might have kick started things for some, but having a love based vision for your future pulls us forward more then running from shame
  8. Get involved in causes that are meaningful for you, again, community community, community
  9. Geek out on the science that supports Alcohol Free living, as data usually helps family/friends understand your choices better than “I need to spiritually up-level”
  10. Reward yourself with free experiences that you always been curious about

#17 - Sober November Speed Interviews Part II

#17 - Sober November Speed Interviews Part II

Enjoy Part II of this three-part series of "speed interviews" of stories of sobriety.

In today's episode, Chelsea interviews two men with two different addictions. Her first guest, Mark, has been a trial lawyer in Chicago for 22 years, first as a prosecutor, then moving on to investigate police-involved shootings and allegations of excessive force committed by Chicago Police officers. After a number of positions in the last three years, he has been a criminal defense and family law attorney for nearly a year. He is married with three children. And he is a virtual life-long addict who bravely shares his compelling story about his journey of sex, fantasy, and secrecy addiction.

Chelsea's second guest is Robert, who from a very young age became addicted to alcohol as a result of trying to compensate for the lack of friendships he had with people his own age. Robert has been sober since 5/27/2006. He is a below-knee amputee (6/15/2017) and a competitive powerlifter. He loves spending all his free time with the family and their dog and cats along with traveling.

Both guests are motivated not only to bring awareness to addiction but help shape and maybe change our perspective of people who struggle with addiction.

#14- Healing Through Harmony with Susy Schieffelin, AKA The Copper Vessel

#14- Healing Through Harmony with Susy Schieffelin, AKA The Copper Vessel

Susy Markoe Schieffelin is a Sound Healer, Kundalini Yoga Teacher, Reiki Master, Sobriety Coach, and the founder of The Copper Vessel.

In this episode, Chelsea and Susy discuss what it was like to grow up with certain expectations of what “success” should look like and how that pressure led to a lifestyle of prescription medication and alcoholism masked as an extroverted socialite. These mechanisms were what she needed to survive the fast-paced lifestyle of a young woman in NYC who was hustling to live the dream. Addiction was a slippery slope for Susy that led her to a cry for help and the bottom of a bottle of pills; her darkest moment which inevitably saved her life.

Susy now leads deeply restorative crystal alchemy sound bath experiences in Los Angeles and all around the world. Her sound baths have been described as "other worldly" and "a mind blowing experience that is a must for people new to meditation." Susy also offers intimate transformational programs that utilize a blend of healing and coaching modalities to empower people to step into their highest self. 

Please share this episode with all the hustler’s in your life who may need a dose of inspiration and realization today that maybe that go-go lifestyle might no longer be working… and thats ok.
