    Angela -

    Thank you for sharing your time and energy with us.

    I enjoyed the No More Calling Fears teleconference (at EFTBooks.com). It was easy to follow and I like the Curiosity calling technique.

    Despite several major life changes I am trying to get back on track - am taking baby steps and this teleconference was one step in the right direction.

    Regards, Sheryl

    I want to let you know that I appreciate everything that you do and what I have purchased from you before.

    The tapping exercise was excellent. And I loved the points you used.... Your method really hit home.

    Wow, Angela...I am so grateful that I decided to buy this Wealth Maverick Audios Special offer....

    I would have to make up some sort of superlative adjective to describe the incredibleness (is that even a word?) of these 2 audios (how's fantabulistic for starters?)....

    ...and moreover of this simply ingenious process of name-ing..rename-ing...and retrieving this precious energy potential instead of just dissolving it and being glad that it has been released (to God only knows where!)...

    ...this is the ultimate process of recycling Energy and welcoming it back with open arms...a POWER-FULL process indeed.

    Thanks so much for sharing it with us!!! Blessings... Sallie

    ------------------------

    By the way, I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED your latest ezine - the units of appreciation is such a fabulous way of thinking/feeling about the payment. Thank you for sharing and illuminating that for me. I could totally related to what you are talking about. You are so right on.

    Blessings, Tami

Michael J. Trout, Bee Conservationist, Foundup Founder

.
Michael J. Trout, Bee Conservationist, Foundup FounderMy unusual, very daring, very smart guest this week is Michael J. Trout, a passionate supporter of bees and permaculture, and the Founder of “Foundups.”

Listen carefully, so you can find the answers to these questions:

•  How many species of bees are there?
•  What percentage of those bees actually produce honey?

•  What American president had the most harsh pesticide rulings (and why is that even important?)?
•  What has happened to bees since then?
•  What is permaculture, and what good will it do you and your property to adopt its principles?
•  What is a “Foundup” and why should you care?

If you are concerned about how our bees are being destroyed by horrifyingly negligent agricultural practices, you’ll be happy to hear about what Michael is doing about that, and how you can do similar things in your own area, even if not on your own property.

I found Michael on a site named Patreon.com – essentially a site encouraging artists and other creatives to set up systems by which they can get either project support or monthly support – kind of like kickstarter, but better.

Michael has a page there with his bee and farming projects, as well as info on his “Foundups,” which you will hear about in our interview. He maintains that startups don’t work, and only a very small percentage of kickstarter projects actually get funded. If you’d ever wanted monthly income as an artist or musician, check this out.

Natalie Hill: Money & Marketing Mastery

.
Natalie Hill, Money & Marketing MasteryNatalie Hill is an internationally respected Business and Marketing Expert, who recently cooked up and delivered the online Tapping into Money World Summit, the best online expert summit I’ve been to yet. No small praise, since as an EFT specialist and radio show host I’m invited to tons of them. You’ll see what I think of most of them…

Four years ago, Natalie gave up her business, her home and all her possessions to live a life of her own design, and to see if it was truly possible to live her passion and purpose from anywhere in the world . . . and get paid well to do it.  A mere 5 months into her Maverick adventure, Natalie was living on a beach in Thailand when she had her first $10,000 income month.

This quick success gave Natalie the determination to discover the spiritual formula for the most direct path to success for a woman entrepreneur. With what she discovered and learned, Natalie created a process to help other courageous and committed women step into their authentic power and create a lucrative transformational business. You’ll hear more about that process….

Dr. Joe Dispenza: How to Change Your Mind and Create Your Reality

.
What happens when you’re run over by a truck, break 6 bones in your back, and you refuse to get the steel rod your doctors want to insert into your spine?

Dr. Joe Dispenza, who starred in the amazing movie that introduced Quantum Physics to the everyday world, “What the Bleep Do We Know?” was kind enough to be my guest on Daring Dreamers Radio.

In our talk together, he describes how, after refusing the surgery that not one but four doctors urged him to undergo, he laid in bed intentionally recreating his body. And even though “they” said he’d never walk again, his body tells a very different story.

Listen in to find out how he did it, and more – how he takes time each morning to intend and create the day he wants to live, the experiences and relationships he wants to have.

Discover how to ask for what you want…and then to ask for and get signs that the universe is listening! (Wait till you hear what one sign he got was! And what he says about Energy Psychology – woohoo!

How to be bold enough to ask for something more than same-old, same-old, and how to be ready to see signals that surprise you and leave no doubt in your mind that this, indeed, was a co-creation by you and the Universe.

Rehana Webster: Trauma Buster

.
bridgeRecently, my friend and good buddy Rehana Webster, who is a world-class expert at handling trauma, met with me on the Daring Dreamers Showcase.

I’ve been watching as she travels the world – lately to remote locations deep within the rugged mountains of Pakistan (see left, where she navigates the rickety bridges over treacherous rivers!).

Rehana helps women who were raped, abused and even targeted to be killed in ‘honor’ killings come back from extreme trauma to live better lives.

Why is her work so important? She told me that, in her experience, 90% of Pakistan’s population needs help with shock and trauma release. Imagine almost an entire country suffering shock and trauma. Serious business!

Have you ever noticed how someone who is upset can’t think straight until they get their nerves calmed down? There’s a very good reason for that. They’re in survival mode – Fight, Flight or Freeze.

We’re wired that way. Why? Because when you’re fleeing an enemy or attacker, what do you need to think about other than get safe, get safe, get safe? Our F-F-F mode kicks in so we can get to some kind of safety and survive even the most horrific experiences.

But once a person gets to a safe place where she can breathe a sign of relief, the strangest thing happens: sometimes (most times) she can’t unwind by herself. She keeps freaking out, or having flashbacks, terrible dreams, or repetitive visions of what happened.

She may not be able to ‘get present,’ or may experience a level of extreme watchfulness for danger called hyper-vigilance.

If you know any vets or women who have been brutally assaulted, or people who have gone through accidents, home invasion, domestic violence, rape, war experiences … you’ve seen trauma’s effects close at hand.

Talk therapy is pretty useless – the trauma settles into the very cells of the body, and you can’t talk it out. Energy therapies like TBT, EFT, etc. are the fastest way to eliminate the shock and trauma from the body.

You may have an experience of surprise, shock or trauma in your own body – maybe you had years of teasing, or bullying, or neglect from your own parents, siblings or classmates.

So I want to invite you to listen in during my interview with Rehana as she talks about her stripped-down, efficient-in-the-field version of EFT she calls the Trauma Buster Technique.

IDareYouRadio.comClick HERE or on the IDYR icon to the left to listen in to our shorty (30 minutes) interview.

Rehana Webster (Founder of TBT, EFT Master, NLP Master and AAMET Trainer of Trainers) used to work with the Correctional System in NZ, has trained over 200 doctors (!!!) in Pakistan to help their patients with TBT, and has been invited by very prestigious organizations like DOST Foundation and OXFAM to present workshops for the people they help in India and Pakistan.

All that sounds pretty formal, but she’s a kick-ass fun gal who loves to laugh as much as I do!

You can find her on Facebook, and at http://TraumaBusterTechnique.com.

Here are some pictures of the amazingly courageous Rehana Webster as she treks deep into the wild mountains of Pakistan to help women (and men!) in need.

Dr. Stefan Ripich: You Can Cure Diabetes in 30 Days? Really?

 

Diabetes has to be one of the most controversial subjects people are discussing nowadays.

So I’m featuring a controversial doctor this week: Dr. Stefan Ripich, who says if people follow his program, in just 30 days he can help them get rid of symptoms and meds. Many would argue. Let’s see what he says about it.

REVEALED: What one item can you add to your food intake every day that will lower your blood sugars by one third? What one food is more dangerous than sugar? Why did the ancient Greeks diagnose diabetes using ants? How do your cells refuse sugar, and you end up with diabetes? Why doesn’t Dr. Ripich weigh people when they come to him?

Find out now – your life may depend on it!

“Don’t believe what you’ve heard about diabetes, ” Dr. Ripich says, “It can be completely turned around – even Diabetes Type 1 people can reduce their meds or even eliminate them.”

CLICK HERE or on the icon to the left to listen in to how you, too, can reverse diabetes with simple, doable strategies and steps. He has had 100% success so far.

Known as the go-to clinician for people with diabetes and blood sugar disorders who want to get off their meds and reverse their disease, Dr. Stefan Ripich ND, CNP is a licensed clinical practitioner with more than 20 years experience. Based in Santa Fe, NM, he combines both naturopathic and allopathic training in his practice, which is founded on the body’s amazing power to heal itself.

Dr. Stefan Ripic Diabetes CureAs the most prevalent disease in Western medicine, diabetes treatment forms almost 40% of Dr. Ripich’s practice. Over the course of his long career, he has treated thousands of patients, with the goal of combining the proven scientific findings that Type 2 diabetes is reversible with his naturopathic and nutritional training.

Ken Solin: Author of “Act Like A Man”

.
This is for you guys in the crowd!

Most of what I focus on is for women, but when I found Ken Solin, I thought what a perfect match for the guys in my audience!

Ken Solin is a men’s activist and author, most recently, of Act Like A Man, the title being a play on the directive thrown at men from the time they’re boys.

“It’s hard to get men and their emotions in the same room at the same time,” says Solin. “And it’s harder for men to connect to their feelings than it is for women. Women start talking to each other when they’re little girls. Men compete.”

The result is a disconnect between men’s hearts and minds and an emotional gridlock with women.

Ken says men have a hard time opening up to each other, don’t know how, and don’t know even where to begin. Or what that might even do for them. Or how it benefits their relationships with women.

And he offers a solution, like the one he created for himself many years ago. After many years of creating a lot of wealth…and yet feeling miserable…he started on a journey of courage and hasn’t looked back yet. And has helped scores of guys do the same.

If you’re a guy (or if you know a guy) who wants safe, loyal, long-term guy friends, and to find out how to ease the pressure of all the pushed-away anger, fear, worry, etc. that’s lurked inside of you like un-spent ordnance since you were a kid, and you didn’t know what to do about it, here are some answers for you.

I was so pleased to speak with Ken – he’s a man who’s done the work!

2. Here’s where to learn how to set up your services and your fees so your Discovery people will ask YOU about your programs and packages, and you will feel totally comfortable talking about them.

Try It On Everything! (Updated!)


Try It On EverythingAre you familiar with the power of EFT, the Emotional Freedom Techniques, to transform lives?

I’ve used EFT in my own life for all challenge and when I want to achive new goals so long now that it’s just simply a part of my life like breathing and eating.

I use it in almost every single client session, teleclasses and group calls.

Here’s a Goodie we can all use – both on ourrselves, and also forhelping our un-EFT-savvy friends, family, aquaintences, clients and co-workers: the wonderful documentary film on DVD, “Try It On Everything.”

IDareYouRadio.comI invite you to listen to my interview with film-maker and EFT practitioner, Nick Ortner–just click HERE or on the logo to the left.

If you haven’t seen the film yet, you’re in for a treat. I invite you to check the movie out HERE.

Ten experimenters were filmed over a period of time at a retreat using EFT very successfully on their various ills and issues–most of them severe. The majority of the participants came out on the other end vastly improved–some with a complete remission of the pain that they had had for years. One woman, who used to have to wear a back brace, now goes completely without it. Pain-free, strong and flexible.

Maria Speth, Intellectual Property Protection Expert: Do You Know the Difference Between A Copyright, Trade Mark, Trade Secrets and Patents?


I’m very proud and delighted to be able to introduce you to Maria Speth
, Intellectual Property Lawyer, as this week’s featured guest on Daring Dreamers Radio!

Because so many of you write and speak, and/or have unique intellectual property and materials that should be protected, I wanted to introduce you to her.

I met Maria a couple of years ago at a top-level CEO retreat where she was teaching about copyright, etc. I was impressed with her talks there about copyrighting, etc., so when we finally were able to connect, I grilled her!

If you don’ t know…

  •  The difference between copyright and trademark…
  •  The difference between Trademark and Trade Secret…
  •  What you can patent and what you cannot…and why…
  •  What every writer needs to know about copyright (whether you write a blog, book, article, etc.)…
  •  Whether what you hired out to be written or designed for you is actually YOURS…
  •  Which agency nails you $5K if you use its images without bothering with a cease-and-desist notice…
  •  What service does the copyright office offer photographers and poets, but not painters….

…it’s time for you to get your copyright knowledge up to date, whether you’re a writer, musician, coach, artist, photographer, speaker, poet!

Because…

  •  knowing what’s what can save you or your company thousands of dollars.
  •  you’ll know what to do if someone uses your materials,
  •  whether you can or cannot use someone else’s.
  •  you’ll know what to do from the start

…so you own the work that you hire out (Think logos [this was s surprise for me!], articles, ghostwriting, formulae, etc.)

I invite you to find out all of this (in 30 jam-packed minutes) in my interview with Intellectual Property Lawyer Maria Speth: CLICK HERE or on the Daring Dreamers Radio icon to the left to listen in.

Not to worry – it’s all easy and understandable – no lawyer-garble-de-gook on my shows!

I communicate the complex intellectual property subject matter to my clients in a way that they can understand it and apply it to protect their most valuable assets.”

“I enjoy helping businesses succeed. My clients consider me a member of their team and a resource to help take their business to the next level…I’m always learning about new businesses and strategies.”

Dr. Pamela Wible, Creating Ideal Clinics Across the Country

.
Pamela WibleI had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing an amazing doctor who is creating major ripples in the health care world.

Dr. Pamela Wible was born to a family of physicians…who all said, don’t become a doctor! But she decided to and went for it.

And discovered, to her horror, that med students become disillusioned and feel cut off from their dreams and ideals within a very short time.

Imagine destroying the love, joy and fulfillment of their calling that they could have had at school, as an intern, and in their professions! It really does happen.

Not only that, but many doctors and interns who teach and mentor them can be sarcastic and cynical enough to further beat any remaining dreams to death.

Alyson Stanfield: Are You Too Frugal?


This is a guest post by Alyson Stanfield, from artbizblog.com. I’ve been following her for years, and she always has great things to say.

flowers-400I’ll just come right out and say it: I am tired of watching artists and arts organizations live on leftover scraps.

In my 23 years of working with fine art, I have witnessed repeatedly how frugal the arts are. Not to the patrons with the big bank accounts, but to the artists, without whom their passionate interest would not exist.

Frugal isn’t bad by itself. In fact, frugal can be good. But frugal becomes detrimental when it feeds the idea that we are not worthy of more.

Many of my clients develop this feeling of unworthiness.

For years I have been writing about how artists can show that their work has value. But I continued to allow artists at my workshops to be treated “on the cheap” by the organizers, and I admit that I was doing the same.

Then I started attending “nice” conferences for marketing, mindset, and software. Conferences with tablecloths, fresh flowers, music, and bright spaces.

I realized that the people and companies that were producing these conferences would have never treated their guests as cheaply as artists are treated. So I modeled what they did for my recent Art Biz Makeover.

If artists are to embrace an abundant mindset, they need to be treated like they already have one – and that they deserve it.

Let me share an example of how an incessant frugal mindset can harm your business.
