With a fast rate of change and the pace at which we as individuals are evolving and society as a whole, turning the lens inward and cultivating inner strength is a venture worth pursuing if you want to be equipped to handle life's challenges and develop true self-reliance.

My guest today, Rick Hanson, was on the show back on episode 059 to talk about his book Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love & Wisdom, and the work he does around understanding the natural tendencies of the brain and how to leverage that knowledge combined with practical neuroscience to create change.

Today Rick is back on the show to dive into his book Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness. This book dives into the principles Rick teaches in his online course, Foundations of Well-Being, which has been practiced by around 15,000 students. It's a deep dive to building 12 inner strengths, which became the basis of this book.

Resilient hits the shelves tomorrow March 27th and is already #1 in New Releases on Amazon.

In this interview we will unpack some of the key distinction in Resilient and what it means to cultivate inner strengths while getting your needs met.

In this episode you'll learn

  • The true essence of self-reliance
  • Why positive psychology is missing a few key pieces and where resilience bridges that gap
  • The 3 Fundamental Needs - safety, satisfaction, and connection
  • Achieving well-being through recognizing, resourcing, regulating, and relating
  • Facing challenges while experiencing our needs being met vs. faces challenges while experiencing are needs not being met
  • Why stress, uneasiness, panic and suffering can become a way of life for people and how they use it to meet their needs
  • The fundamentals of what Rick calls the Red Zone and the Green Zone
  • The difference between reacting and responding to adversity and meeting the next moment already feeling full and balanced inside

It's pretty tough to deny the fact that we are influenced by unseen forces, energies and frequencies that we can't fully explain or describe from the rational mind. Frequencies, energy, and even emotion are an experience.

Giving more attention to how we feel and tending to our personal vibration and choosing to come from what Penney calls our home frequency is what I would consider a direct translation of what it means to be your authentic self, or that eternal aspect of you.

Penney Peirce was on the show at episode 120 to talk about her book Transparency and this particular stage in the Transformation process. Today we are going to come back around to understand another one of the stages of transformation through Penney's book Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration.

Penney unpacks and builds some powerful distinctions in here to help us understand what frequency is, different ways to regulate our personal vibration (especially in social situations where we may "assume" the frequency of others), and the importance of finding our home frequency and center.

Through mindfulness practices, meditation, and directing our attention, just to name a few, we can start to bring our awareness to more subtle levels of energy and tap into things like intuition, creativity, and even more peaceful states.

The desire for people seeking more meaning in their lives, have more fulfilling careers, and searching for a deeper purpose are just a few of the ways this desire to integrate the physical and the spiritual are starting to not only emerge, but be the norm.

In this episode you'll learn

  • How energy and consciousness works and what is happening on the planet
  • The difference between your personal vibration and your home frequency
  • How we tend to frequency match other people in social situations
  • What makes our moods and energy levels swing and how to get more centered
  • Some ways we can start to familiarize ourselves with our home frequency
  • What you can do to strengthen your sense of self
  • Where Frequency and Transparency come together
  • Understanding natural joy and your conditioned feeling habits
  • and MORE…
