020 – Who Will You Be When the Storm Comes? Continued

Today’s Episode:

There have been so many catastrophes and natural disasters lately that we wanted to continue our topic of who will you be when the storm comes. The Country is still reeling from Harvey and Irma, and we have links below if you want to donate to charities to help people and animals still struggling with the aftermath. Our hearts go out to the people who live on the islands that were devastated by the hurricanes. We are especially concerned about Puerto Rico and how the people will survive with no power, water, or food.

We are also concerned about the recent earthquakes in Mexico City. This disaster hit home with Patrick because his son was actually there when the earthquake happened. Fortunately, he is fine and Patrick shares how he helped his son find a safe place to stay. We talk about being prepared when disasters strike and how true leaders emerge in the worst of times. We also take a walk through the jungle as Michael shares a story of his transformative journey on his first trip to Brazil. This is something he doesn’t normally talk about, but he bares it all and shares his story. This is a special episode, and we hope you enjoy it.

Topics Discussed Today

[02:34] There have been several national disasters recently. The island of Puerto Rico may be without power for months or more.
[04:24] Patrick’s son Brandon was in Mexico City during the earthquake. He is safe, but the earthquake was really scary. Huge skyscrapers were falling. The best plan of action was to get out of town.
[07:27] Patrick shares how he helped his son find a new place to stay and get out of town. He and his girlfriend had to leave with just the clothes on their backs.
[09:11] How the safe place is where you feel with your intuition is safe.
[12:40] How time is the most important thing when people are buried in debris. The longer they are buried the less chance of survival.
[13:52] How Michael went through a ceremony with a shaman where he had apocalyptic visions. It felt like whatever was coming was so close.
[16:07] Practical solutions to prepare for a flood. Get your home in order. Have a generator, food, and water. Get to know your neighbors and find people who know how to do things. Know where to go and have bugout bag and cash. Extra medicine and copies of records and pet supplies and personal protection.
[21:56] Jordan B. Peterson and the psychology of the flood and how organisms adapt to their environments.
[22:55] How humans don’t know what is going to happen, but we write stories about survival and the hero’s journey.

[35:18] Michael went to Brazil when he was at his wit’s end. He started meditating and went to a workshop in Brazil and met a shaman. Awesome story about how people aren’t always what you think they are. Along with his awakening “hollow tube” experience.
[46:32] How regret can be like a stain on your soul. Getting past regret is never going back to what you regret again.
[51:11] If you are doing something wrong in your life, the first thing to do is to just stop doing that. Anything in the right direction is better than nothing at all.
[55:24] Even if you go down a dark pathway things can get so much better with a vision of looking towards the future and having love around you. With this vision, you can get through anything.
[57:30] How we can’t hold on to the past. We have to keep moving on and things will be better in the future.
[01:00:54] We got a message from our mystery Jersey UK listener, Jane, and we give her a shout out. A live broadcast from Jersey may be in the works.
