I sat in the audience and was in awe by the vibrations I felt through her music.  

My whole body was filled with this unexplainable bliss. It was an honor to experience it and meet world reknowned kirtan artist, Ragani.  In this episode, we talk about words and how they hold vibrations. How she met a legendary Yoga & Meditation Master Swami Rama at the age of 8. What happened when she chose not to follow the crowd. Following the pursuit of feeling. And she challenges you to re-think what it means to be spiritual.

When it comes to finding happiness, 
so many of us suffer from the what I like to call the “when and then” syndrome. When I drive a nicer car, then I will be happy
When my body is fit and toned, then I will be happy
This is why I’m so excited to share with you today’s conversation that I had with Celebrity Happiness Expert, Rob Mack who has such a profound perspective on happiness and powerful story to share behind it. 
 In today’s episode, Rob is going to shift your entire perspective on how you achieve happiness.
You’re going to learn how to improve the programming of your mind so that you can be, feel, and think happier in a way that is deep, true and sustainable. He will teach you how to transform your mindset and gift you with daily hacks you can do to be the happiest version of you. You won’t want to this miss! 
"Enlightenment is lightening up."
"If you think about it, most of nature, is perfectly blissful despite experiencing similar loss, misfortune, death, illness.”
"The problem is a mind that can’t stop thinking.”
"Even if you had the perfect life, lover, health, body, success,
Conditions and circumstances, it only accounts for 10% of your happiness"
"When I tap into my inner Self, things happen more harmoniously and they show up.”
"Happiness is not circumstantial or conditional. 
Success doesn’t lead to happiness
But happiness leads to success 
If you can get happy before your circumstances change or improve, 
you can actually improve the circumstances in your life.”

Quotes from Janet throughout the Show: 
"Remember to ask for what you need because the Universe supports it”
"Be unique. 
Too many people try to be perfect and nothing launches. 
They wait too long and the moment passes. There is no such thing as perfection."
"Sometimes falling on your face is the best way to move forward.”
"You learn from your mistakes. The more mistakes you make, the more you learn. That is where all the learning happens. 
With each thing you make, you learn more."

Quotes during the show:
"Persistent love plays a huge part in ability to heal and recover pain,trauma, and self worth. Tough love is not the answer. "
“Surrendering your will is not this defeatist approach to recovery. It's not this throw your hands in the air and not do anything. The beauty of it is that we don't have to hold onto the pain and suffering of the moment. You don’t have to sit in it anymore. Your higher power will take care of it."

Warning: you'll need some tissues. This episode is proof that transformation is possible for everyone. I was left speechless so many times in today's episode with my guest Cortney Lovell. From the outside looking in, she was the picture perfect American girl playing 3 varsity level sports, honors student and you would have never guessed what she has gone through to be the person she is today. In honor of recovery month, I wanted to understand addiction and I couldn't have understood it better than through the honest account of someone who has gone through it. 

In today's episode, Cortney opens up about what it was like to live with addiction at a very young age, how her addiction began before it even started, the fear that arises of judgment from others, the day when she thought her life was completely over and the heart riveting event that turned her entire life around into a healthier path.

She also talks about the things that broke her down and stripped her of her power are the same things that give her the most power today.


Cortney's Quotes

"We can't paint up an exterior and expect the interior to match it." 

"Every idea of who I was going to be when I grew up, disappeared. The future dissolved. All that was there for me was getting high." 

"I decided I was going to meet me and learn to love me."  

 "Today I get to live my life in service and my service is so often using so much of my suffering."

"The things that broke me down and stripped me down of my power at one point are the same things that give me the most power today. That heal me and keep me whole and that's transformation, that’s possible in recovery where we turn our greatest struggles into our assets and gifts."

 "Transformation is possible for everyone. "


What else could you ask for in life to be a young woman facing a lifetime of possibilities?


"To understand what my purpose is in life already, the least I can do is live it."


"There is purpose in my experience and there is a design greater than I can conceive."

Indecision is paralyzing.

I often wonder how much time does the mind spend between indecision and decision?

Should I go to the gym or should I sleep in?

Should I go out tonight or should I watch Netflix?

Should I eat this cookie or should I have that apple?

So the question becomes; how many of these decisions lead us to a more expansive and fulfilling life?

How many of these decisions lead us to a reality that isn't serving us?

I can admit that there have been so many times growing up where indecision got the best of me. Instead of starting to the make the changes I wanted, I stopped because I didn't know how to move forward. And repeat the same cycle until I finally learned the lesson.

And I know from speaking with so many people that I’m not alone in this. In this episode, you'll learn 2 reasons why you find yourself experiencing the same repeating cycles and uncover some big roadblocks that are keeping you stuck.

Are you often busy, yet unproductive when it comes to focusing on the tasks that propel you forward? 
Do you have a difficult time how to organize your day to maximize productivity?

Welcome back dear One!

I am settling back in from my trip overseas to Vietnam and Thailand, and I wanted to take time to share with you reflections that came into my awareness while I was over there. 

It's so easy to lost in such a busy, always stimulating our senses kind of world. We drift away from our own desires and dreams without even realizing it. Then we become unhappy and feel unfulfilled. In this episode, I talk about coming back home to yourself to ask questions that guide you to your own internal answers. We also do a guided meditation.

No one knows you better than you know you.

The more you can spend some time in self-study by asking yourself these questions, the more you can deepen the relationship with yourself so that you fulfill your desires.

It has been quite a while since we've had an anonymous episode on the show. I love the raw true tales that come from the callers about overcoming the most difficult tragedies of life. These episodes highlight the humanness that is present in all of us and the stories behind the faces that make us who we are. 
In this episode, our anonymous caller releases a story about being denied by her father at birth and could not be cared for by her mother by the time she was 8 months old. She spent her life being cared for in different households wondering if her father was ever going to want her as a child. 
When she finally gets an opportunity to rekindle with her father, something tragic happened that left her questioning her self-worthiness of love. 
Music was her home. Today, she is a singer songwriter and her voice heals people the way singing healed her as she was navigating through the trenches of life as a child and teenager with no parents. She found her gift in the times when she felt the most lonely and unwanted. 
It shows how we must honor those tragic times in our lives because it plays a great role in connecting us to our purpose and our gift. I send so much love this caller. 

Listening will surely send chills through your spine as you fall in love with the guest and her bravery.

In this episode, I had the honor of interviewing best selling author of Do a Day, Bryan Falchuk.
After facing life changing adversities back to back, Bryan created an approach to help others live a better life based with his Do A Day philosophy.
Bryan was faced with many relatable challenges in life like dealing with depression, self-criticism, judgement from others, living with obesity as a child while trying to sort through his parent's divorce, the stresses from work, depression, the duty of being a good father and husband. At one point, he was even told that his wife's illness was fatal. The most difficult part was having their son watch this all happen.
This contributed a shift in Bryan to wake up to life and live each day, better. Today Bryan shares that it is not just about overcoming the adversity. It's about asking yourself, "how can I create a life of happiness, achievement and balance?"
He has lost nearly 100 lbs., has ran a marathon and even transformed his diet into being vegan in just one day. He got his masters from a top school and rose to a senior executive position in a successful business. And now he’s a best-selling author, has spoken at TEDx events, and has written articles for many major publications like Inc. Magazine, the Chicago Tribune and LA Times. He’s transformed his life and developed an approach to help others do the same that he teaches in his best-selling book “Do a Day”, and he’s here today to share that philosophy with all of you.
Here is what you will learn: 
-How to use each day to contribute to your goals to live the life you want
-The 3 building blocks to living better each day
-How to identify your true motivation (not what you think)
-How to be free from the past or the future
-Bryan's personal struggles 
-How to achieve greater success
-How to take specific action
-Why we must start with self-love
This philosophy will you to achieve your goals without the self-criticism of our past choices or the worry of what lies ahead. 
Bryan is also a regular contributor for Inc Magazine ( and does many keynote speaking events, including an upcoming TEDx.
Bryan Falchuk overcame adversity, lost nearly 100 pounds, ran a marathon, dramatically changed his 
Today, Bryan coaches many people on how to achieve their goals and thrive. 
Bryan's quotes throughout the episode:
"You have to focus on the self love because how can you expect to overcome what’s standing in the way and achieve the things you really care about if inside you don’t feel like you deserve it or you’re worthy of it.”
"Self-love is pervasive in all that we do."
"Start allowing for the possibility that you are good, you’re capable and you deserve it."
"Find what's wrong, call it out and fix it but it makes us hypercritical because we are trained to look for what’s wrong in ourselves."
