    Ashley Merryman on using the science of winning and losing to be our best

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.


    *NOTE: "Best Of" replay. Live shows again starting in July!


    Competition can be seen as ugly and divisive but it’s actually an essential element in driving us to do and be our best. 


    My guest tonight, New York Times best-selling science writer Ashley Merryman, will lay out the science of winning and losing, including how we can figure out the kind of competitor we are (to help ourselves avoid choking), the differences between how men and women compete, and ways to rejigger our thinking so we use competition in ways that serve us instead of defeating us.


    Her excellent book, co-authored with Po Bronson, that we’ll be discussing tonight, is “Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing.” 


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. PT, 10-11 p.m. ET, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

    Secret Knowledge: The Zohar and the Kabbalah

    in Education

    Kabbalah (literally "receiving/tradition") is an esoteric method, discipline, and school of thought that originated in Judaism. A traditional Kabbalist in Judaism is called a Mekubal.  Cabbalism is a system of Jewish mysticism and magic, and is the foundational element in modern witchcraft. Virtually all of the great witches and sorcerers of this century were Kabbalists.


    Summary: God: bestows Man: receives. Cabbalists believe that humans were created by God as receivers of pleasure, and in order to climb our way back to heaven, we need to align our will with the will of God (putting aside all earthly lusts for receiving pleasure).  Cabbalists do this by using a “screen”, which screens out earthly human desires, and allows alignment with the will of God.  Since humans were created using a 125 step process (descending from Heaven to earth), they believe that they can re-trace the 125 steps and get back to Heaven.  They even believe that humans can become creators of life (i.e. golem).   This is a spiritual process, and it involves encountering demonic entities on the way to the Heavenly realm.  It is commonly believed that many people have gone insane as a result of attempting this process.


    John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me


    Hebrews 9:22  And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.


    Luke 8:17-18  For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.   Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.

    Chakra 7 with Rafiya The Light Worker `Hosted by Mieasha Stroud on The 6th DAY

    in Spirituality

    The highest Chakra represents our ability to be fully connected spiritually. It is the knowingness and our right to aspire. The Crown is dedication to the divine consciousness and trusting the Universe. The highest crown is the power where we learn about one’s spirituality. The "way of the crown chakra" is the way of going beyond the limits of our own ego. It is the way of surpassing the ego and knowing that all of creation is interconnected at an important level sometimes called, "Zero Point Field". The 7th Chakra is the meeting point between limited element of the body and the ego and infinite Universe and soul. It is the place where time and timelessness intersect and where death and eternal life meet according to tantric philosophy when we realize that everything is interconnected and we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude, faith and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety. We are guided by the higher power and we feel divinity from within and from without.

    June 24, 2015, 10pm (PDT) - Big Foot in Nevada with Chuck

    in Paranormal

    Chuck is one of the prominent researchers of Big Foot in the State of Nevada.  Odd, isn't it, as when most of us think of the desert State, we think of gambling, casinos, Area 51, and aliens.  Who really thought Sasquatch was in Nevada?


    After watching one of the first Monster Quest “Sasquatch” episodes with his son, Chuck started researching sightings on the internet. It was then he realized that there have been numerous sightings, not far from where he lives in Reno, Nevada.  Chuck hadn't realized before then, that there was any sasquatch activity around Lake Tahoe, or the surrounding Sierras. With this new found revelation, he became obsessed with anything and everything “bigfoot.”


    Already having a blog in currency trading, and after reading a few other bigfoot related blogs, Chuck then decided to start blogging on bigfoot, with a focus on the eastern Sierra Nevadas. This began as a hobby, an activity to do with his son. Since, it's turned into a passion. Chuck now has his own field research, and is now scouting areas along the California/Nevada border.


    Chuck has always enjoyed the outdoors, as an avid sport fisherman, and scuba diver, so he feels that he's not too far out of his element, hunting for Sasquatch.

Creativity is an essential element in their life together, and they feel the need to continue to challenge themselves musically. ISH feels that it is their calling to use their gifts of voice to positively influence and help others.

    The Link Between Carbon and Life: How About Some Common Sense?

    in Lifestyle

    IMAGINE........IF WE LIVED OUR LIVES WITH COMMON SENSE AGAIN.


    THE CARBON EMISSIONS CONTROL ARGUMENT IS ONCE AGAIN GETTING A LOT OF PLAY AS THE ONE WORLD ORDER LOOKS FOR MORE WAYS TO CONTROL OUR LIVES.  THINK ABOUT IT.  EVERY TIME WE BREATHE WE TAKE IN OXYGEN AND EXHALE CARBON DIOXIDE.  AND THAT CARBON DIOXIDE IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF ALL OF OUR PLANTS AS MAN AND FLORA WORK TOGETHER.  SO WHY IS CARBON THE EVIL ELEMENT TO SO MANY AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN?


    TONIGHT AT 10 COMMENTARY WILL BE OFFERED ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF CARBON TO LIFE AND THAT IT IS NOT WHAT THE CLIMATE CHANGERS WANT TO MAKE IT.  ALL OF THEIR PROJECTIONS ARE BASED ON MODELS AND WE'VE FOUND TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT COMPUTER MODELING, GARBAGE IN EQUALS GARBAGE OUT.  AND MORE AND MORE EVIDENCE CONTINUES TO MOUNT THAT THE DOOMSAYERS HAVE MISSED THEIR MARK BY GIGANTIC PROPORTIONS DUE TO DOCTORING EVIDENCE TO COME OUT WITH THE RESULT THAT THEIR BIG GOVERNMENT MASTERS SEEK. AFTER ALL, MOST OF THEIR FUNDING COMES FROM GOVERNMENT GRANTS.


    LET'S SLOW DOWN THE PACE, RECOGNIZE THAT THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF CHANGE TO EARTH'S CLIMATE IS NATURAL AND FURTHER RECOGNIZE THAT THE UNITED STATES SHOULDN'T PUNISH HER PEOPLE FOR SOMETHING THAT NONE OF US CONTROL.  THE CONSEQUENCES OF EXTREME CLIMATE VIEWS WILL MAKE LIFE UNLIVABLE FOR ALL BUT THOSE WEALTHY ELITES WHO ARE ENRICHING THEMSELVES OFF OF THE PROCESS.


    SEE YOU AT 10.

    2 Part Social Media Optimization Series, Part 2: 5 MORE Ways to Optimize Content

    in Business

    Attempting to master social media marketing can be both confusing and overwhelming at times.  Keeping track of all of the latest changes and trends, while trying to implement all of the newest tips and tricks can be challenging for a busy company.


    When it comes to social media, the nucleus of all engagement is content.  So no matter what different changes may happen to the structure of social media sites, the one thing that will remain the same is the importance of well executed, optimized, engaging content.


    While writing great content is a constant, optimizing it is a constantly evolving medium.  Optimizing your content for social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter can be as specific as changing an element within your post to work with the infrastructure of each one of these juggernauts.  


    We all know that writing custom content for your social media marketing campaign can be time consuming, so let’s make sure that all of that time spent is an investment that will go towards accomplishing our goals.


    For the next two shows, host Christopher Tompkins (@ChrisGoAgency) will take The Social Marketing Academy students through 10 of his simple and effective ways to optimize your social media content!  This show is part one in the two part series!
