Pushing Through Doubt with Dianne A. Allen

“Sometimes we don't give ourselves permission to feel doubt.” — Dianne A. Allen (00:27-00:31)

Have you ever experienced the feeling of doubt up to the point it served as a barrier for you to reach your destiny? Many gifted and visionary leaders don't realize how they're allowing doubt to steal their joy. Perhaps, you think it's part of the human condition. But sometimes, we don't give ourselves permission to feel doubt, just because our society taught us that we shouldn't feel it. Instead of asking what's wrong with you, contemplate what you can do better so you can have a successful journey. In this week's episode, we're going to talk about pushing through doubt. It's time for you to perceive your uncertainty from obstacles to stepping stones.

Part One of ‘Pushing Through Doubt with Dianne A. Allen’

Our daily lives are constantly filled with routines that take our energy, time, and attention. Expectedly, it can sometimes be challenging. Especially during the pandemic that we're going through right now, doubt can easily creep in, and this is what happens for sure. 

It distracts you from your true identity and where you're headed. It's a small voice that'll tell you that you're not good enough or you're dreaming about something that's too big to be accomplished. It's not the truth you should be leaning on to, because it's a BIG LIAR!

 

“Doubt is a distraction from who you are and where you're headed.” – Dianne A. Allen (02:15-02:21)

Once we realize we have to feel kindness and compassion for ourselves, once we take a breath and give ourselves a break, we realize that it's time to trust. If you're trying to get on the other side of having doubt consume you is to begin to trust the greater plan of the universe and trust yourself as a competent human being. You have a mighty purpose, and you're not here on this planet by accident. Have a little bit of faith that you're able to achieve great things, and things will always be better.

Part Two of ‘Pushing Through Doubt with Dianne A. Allen’

As we all go on our journey, we tend to get attached to the outcome that we miss the beauty of the process. Be an observer, and take the time to witness everything that's happening around you, but not necessarily getting involved in everything or on top of everything. It's about appreciating the small things so you won't miss the bigger picture.

“Gratitude can help you overcome all your doubts.” – Dianne A. Allen (12:42-12:51)

Keep on moving forward and keep expanding because that's the way it works. Focus on stepping out of the drama for a minute, step out of the intensity, and honor yourself for all of the good things that you're doing in the world. 

You're flawlessly beautiful, lovable, and capable. Let's release the belief and idea that there's something wrong with you. Enjoy the freedom from letting doubt distract you away from your aligned goodness. Focus on what's right with you, and don't leave any room for the doubt to stay. It's always possible for you to live your real vision. Go out there and let your light shine.

How Perseverance Helps You Overcome Obstacles in Life with Andy Blair

How Perseverance Helps You Overcome Obstacles in Life with Andy Blair

“You can turn those obstacles into stepping stones by having perseverance.” — Dianne A. Allen (00:46-00:50)

Have you ever met someone who was able to turn their obstacles into stepping stones? All of us want to have a certain level of perseverance. This may be a common word that you hear every day, but it can create such a powerful impact on our life. In this week's episode, we're going to talk about how perseverance helps you overcome obstacles in your life.

Part One of ‘How Perseverance Helps You Overcome Obstacles in Life with Andy Blair’

Andy Blair is currently a Family Life and Recovery Pastor at HighPoint Church in Lake Wales, Florida. Andy is originally from Kentucky, but he and his family have spent time all over the country. Before coming to Lake Wales, he has been the lead pastor of Crosspoint Church in Natchez, Mississippi, for three years. 

Before that, he and his family lived in the Tampa Bay area for eight years. Andy spent 20+ years in Fortune 500 companies and had a successful career in sales and leadership. However, in 2006 he found himself bankrupt spiritually, mentally, and physically and found himself in a drug and alcohol rehab.

“Keep going no matter what.” – Dianne A. Allen (01:17-01:19)

Andy finally answered God's call on his life in 2006, and since then, God has been working in and through Andy and his family. Andy's wife, Becky, is a school teacher and is teaching Kindergarten in Polk County. He loves to golf, fish and hunt.

Andy and Becky have two daughters, Emily and Betsy. Emily is a graduate of Furman University and is currently in Cincinnati, Ohio, and works for the American Heart Association. Betsy graduated from Mid-America Christian University in Oklahoma City and is in her second year at Palm Beach Atlantic, where she is pursuing a master's in social work. Both daughters are getting married in 2020.

Part Two of ‘How Perseverance Helps You Overcome Obstacles in Life with Andy Blair’

 

Andy loves to share the story of how God put his family back together through a church. Growing up, he discovered that he has a high calling and that life isn't just about money or fame. That served as the defining moment that shifted his life until he decided to follow his vision and heart's desire. He surrendered in a way that he started looking at what he was supposed to be doing with his life. 

He remembers getting on a plane in Houston to fly to Florida to go to rehab, and he said to God, "If you relieve this from me, I will serve you the rest of my life." Upon staying in Florida, he started attending a church and bumped into a Pastor who told him that he has what it takes to be in the ministry.

“Follow your heart's desire, your vision, and your calling.” – Dianne A. Allen (11:44-11:46)

That was the beginning of God right-sizing his life through many places where he was led to meet different people speaking into his life and through various service opportunities until he finally said yes to God.

Despite the trials along the way, God has been so good providing for his family. He painted houses while pursuing ordination and establishing his qualifications for ministry. 

Today, he continues to make a positive impact in the lives of many people out there. Maybe not all our stories are the same, but all things always work together for our good. 

His story of perseverance can fuel someone's faith that you may not be where you want to be right now, but you are where you need to be because God is in the business of putting people in the right direction so they can live their God-given purpose.

Navigating Your Mental, Emotional and Physical Health with Laura Rose Gage

Navigating Your Mental, Emotional and Physical Health with Laura Rose Gage

Navigating Your Mental, Emotional and Physical Health with Laura Rose Gage

“We're much bigger than our emotions and our thoughts.” — Dianne A. Allen (06:50-06:53)

In this week's episode, we have a young, dynamic guest who has a strong belief about the holistic part of life in a much bigger way. You might want to grab a pen and paper because you're going to want to take notes as we welcome Dianne A. Allen's guest, Laura Rose Gage. Together we navigate, bringing your whole self, soul, mental, emotional, and physical bodies in alignment with each other and Divine Love.

Part One of ‘Navigating Your Mental, Emotional and Physical Health with Laura Rose Gage’

Laura's work as herbalist and Chinese Medicine Practitioner, her purpose is two-fold; to help clients understand the language of their souls and deepen their relationship with the Divine, the universe, or God. Our connection with the unconditional love of the universe brings our life into alignment with a heart-led path. 

Our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual symptoms are messages from our True Self. These symptoms can be gentle or alarming, but without translation or a road map, they are confusing and disorienting. Through Chinese Medicine, plant essences, herbs, storytelling and other holistic healing modalities, she helps her clients learn the language of their souls and deepen their connection with the Divine.

“I'm a firm believer that a story can heal someone.” – Laura Rose Gage (33:58-34:00)

Laura used to read stories about religions like Buddhism, Islam, and other diverse ways. She remembers being fascinated with the idea of divine or esthetic experience and being raised in a fairly conservative Christian household. She's always been curious how she can experience closeness with the Divine and how it's like to have an extensive understanding of all the different religions out there. 

According to her, it's so important to have those specific rituals and touchstones to access the Divine. However, if you could access even just 10%, it makes this huge difference, especially when dealing with chronic depression and anxiety.

Part Two of ‘Navigating Your Mental, Emotional and Physical Health with Laura Rose Gage’

Laura struggled with suicidal ideation and self-injury practices way back to deal with everything. But ever since she started working with her patients, she finally understood that discomfort is okay because it serves as a message from your soul telling that something's off and you're not in alignment.

“You have a choice to live a vibrant, healthy, fulfilling and joyful life.” – Dianne A. Allen (55:21-55:32)

Lastly, she does a lot of storytelling, uses a lot of traditional Chinese mythology and fables because these things help us understand archetypes that are at work in our life. She's a firm believer that a story can heal someone.

Every time someone claims that Laura is a lifesaver, she always responds by saying she's like a bridge or connector who happens to have a little more experience on the road, whose goal is to connect them to the Divine.

How to Accept and Receive Help with Linda Burhans

How to Accept and Receive Help with Linda Burhans

June 9, 2020

How to Accept and Receive Help with Linda Burhans

Most caregivers usually take their role out of love and with good intentions. Some of them will not ask for any assistance and may even refuse it when it is offered. It can be challenging to understand why they would choose to do it alone, rather than ask for support. In this week's episode, Dianne A. Allen talks about how you can accept and receive help, with her special guest, Linda Burhans, CEO of Connecting Caregivers Coaching & Resources.

Part One of ‘How to Accept and Receive Help with Linda Burhans’

The opportunity of being a caregiver isn't just for those who help their clients make and keep appointments with doctors, provide or arrange transportation, and serve as a companion for their clients. 

So many people make it sound so arduous, but it's merely so much more than that. You're either a caregiver or somebody is going to be taking care of you. If you're caring for a child, a spouse, a parent, or anyone else, that makes you a good caregiver.

“Surround yourself with people who bring joy into your life.” – Dianne A. Allen (23:23-23:28)

Sometimes, people's pride and not wanting to tell somebody what's on their plate can get in the way for them to seek help. If somebody doesn't know what you're going through, they can't step in and support you no matter how expert they are.

Part Two of ‘How to Accept and Receive Help with Linda Burhans’

According to a study by the University of Pittsburgh, sixty-five percent of the caregivers over the age of sixty-nine are dying before the person they're taking care of. Because they don't visit the doctor that much, they accompany someone to the doctor. 

Sometimes, they don't eat right because they make sure the people they're taking care of are eating right and on time. They don't get enough sleep because they're too busy watching over someone get a good sleep.

“Asking for help is evidence of self-awareness and strength.” – Dianne A. Allen (32:17-32:27)

Caregivers are the ones who are genuine about helping you; they want to laugh with you and help you find solutions and ideas because there are solutions for everything. Unfortunately, some people don't realize that they need help too. Remember that it's okay to ask for help and receive assistance because it's a sign of strength.

More Information About Linda Burhans

Author, Speaker, Radio Show Host, Linda Burhans is ever awed by the strength, resilience, and commitment of the caregivers she meets and seeks to remind them that they are not alone. Help is available and it is okay to accept that help. Caregivers that seek to take on everything on their own often decline in health. The most important thing she teaches is that caregivers need and deserve the time and space to take care of themselves.

Whether you read her books or meet Linda in person, you will quickly realize that she truly lives by her mission: “To acknowledge and appreciate all caregivers as they care for those who can not care for themselves. It is my intention to empower the caregiver, ease their burdens and help them find the joy in the journey through education, comfort, and support” 

Please join us Saturdays at noon on WTAN 106.1FM or 1340AM in the Tampa Bay Area. You can also tune in LIVE on YouTube or Apple iTunes at Connecting Caregivers Radio or LIVE on Facebook at Linda Burhans.  Podcasts of every show and other resources can be found at

Sleep Better at Night and Get Rid of Inner Distress With Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi

Sleep Better at Night and Get Rid of Inner Distress With Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi

June 2, 2020

Sleep Better at Night and Get Rid of Inner Distress With Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi

During times of uncertainty, how can we get better sleep and get rid of all that inner stress? Sleeping better goes with pain management of all kinds. In this week's episode, Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi will give helpful insights into how you can free yourself from inner distress so you can sleep better, function better, and be happy. This is going to be great for everybody who wants to understand a little more about how to relieve inner distress.

Part One of ‘Dr. Khanita - Sleep Better at Night and Get Rid of Inner Distress’

Khanita Suvarnasuddhi is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Chiropractic in the State of Maryland. She is the founder of Araya Holistic Pain Management, an integrative wellness center within the community of Clarksburg, MD. There's a lot of wisdom behind her. She's married, has a cute little dog, and a great life. If you're curious about what her belief is around inner distress and how it affects our sleep, she does a lot of qigong exercises. Qigong's gentle movements help to move blood and oxygen around the body, nourishing the organs and tissues promoting healing. In addition, due to the mind's connection to the breath and physical movements, qigong helps calm the mind, relieving emotional stress and mental anxiety.

“We all have a message that is healing and uplifting.” – Dianne A. Allen 

Her background is in chiropractic, a traditional Chinese medicine that includes acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and martial arts since she was twelve years old. The health benefits of martial arts propelled her to explore more of it. Whether you believe it or not, some things are changing in your body and specific postures. You feel the energy kind of go to certain places and be in that alignment where the energy flows freely throughout your body. Whenever you're stuck, you'll feel and quickly notice it.

Part Two of ‘Dr. Khanita - Sleep Better at Night and Get Rid of Inner Distress’

Interestingly, our organs have a circadian rhythm. Some people that deal with grief when they lose someone wake up at a certain time. So, the lung organ is associated with grief. This happens to a lot of people dealing with loss as they wake up between three to five in the morning. You don't get the same quality of sleep after eleven in the evening. The quality is different when you sleep before that time versus sleeping after eleven or midnight. Even if you wake up eight or nine hours later, the quality is not the same. So, sleeping before eleven in the evening is crucial and that improves the quality of your sleep. 

Another thing is consuming snacks after eight in the evening. What happens biochemically is that it triggers other responses like the sugar level going up and that keeps us awake. Intermittent fasting is also helpful because it gives our digestive system enough time to clean up stuff. Remember, don't eat too late and don't sleep too late.

“Dare to step outside of the box and I will lead the way.” – Dianne A. Allen 

There are many things that you can do to establish sleep hygiene. And it's not as hard to do as you might think. Try working these five habits into your evening for better sleep.

  • Try not to look at your computer screen before you go to bed. 
  • Do some stretching.
  • Read something interesting. (Or if you have kids, read a storybook with them.)
  • Keep the temperature a little cooler at night.
  • Meditation routines

If there's something you need help with in terms of healing, contact Dr. Khanita. And remember, put your face to the sun, so the shadows fall behind you. You're a rockstar and you are here on purpose with a purpose. Let's all go out there, move and create the beautiful life you're meant to create.

More Information about Dr. Khanita

Dr. Khanita Suvarnasuddhi is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Doctor of Chiropractic in the State of Maryland. She is the founder of Araya Holistic Pain Management, an integrative wellness center within the community of Clarksburg, MD.

Approaching healing from an integrated perspective, Dr. Khanita blends Western & Eastern methods, creating a supportive environment for holistic transformations to take place. Raised in Germantown, Maryland, Dr. Khanita is happy to be back to spread her love of Chiropractic and Chinese medicine in the community she grew up with. She believes that the combination of Chiropractic and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can help with today’s modern stresses to restore balance in the body to reduce all kinds of pain.

Dr. Khanita is an avid martial artist (traditional boxing, Thai boxing, and kung fu) and can be found practicing outside in her spare time or at the boxing gym. She enjoys challenging herself in different movement patterns and has recently added Krav maga and synergy movement to the mix! Other than that, she lives with her husband and their wonderful animals, Teddy, Ninja and Ginger."

Let Go of the Story with Conner Kees

Let Go of the Story with Conner Kees

“I'm an intuitive mentor for visionary leaders.” — Dianne A. Allen (18:00-18:02)

This pandemic that we’re all going through right now is a constant reminder that we’re all in this process of rediscovering what’s important to us and remaking ourselves. Those who are dedicated to that higher consciousness takes a lot of guts, faith, and trust. 

In this week’s episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Letting go of the story with Conner Kees

About Conner Kees:

  • Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine - Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine, 2018
  • BS in Health Science - Dragon Rises College of Oriental Medicine, 2018
  • Certified Herbalist - Botanologos School of Herbal Studies, 2015
  • Certified Permaculturist - Oregon State University, 2014
  • BS in Psychology - Columbus State University, Top 5% on Nation Exit Exam, 2013

Part One of ‘Let Go of the Story with Conner Kees’

Conner Kees wasn’t much of an athlete growing up, so he decided to explore and experience herbalism. Along the way, through his connections in the health food industry, he became a certified Western herbalist, a member of the American Herbalist Guild. It's an educational organization founded in 1989 as a non-profit to represent the goals and voices of herbalists specializing in the medicinal use of plants. 

 

“Seek wise counsel from people who are ahead of you.” – Connor Kees (25:57-26:01)

 

Their primary goal of the American Herbalist Guild is to promote a high level of professionalism and education in the study and practice of therapeutic herbalism. Having realized that the information we find on google isn’t sufficient, he got motivated to become a health care practitioner, to become an acupuncturist. 

Part Two of ‘Let Go of the Story with Conner Kees’

Acupuncture, massage therapist, chiropractor, medical doctor, anybody, therapist, or anybody, if you don't resonate with them, keep on moving. It's highly advisable to find a therapist who does psychosomatic integration. It's an overall evidence-based treatment approach for working with complex trauma and dissociation, that addresses the root causes of trauma-based presentations and fragmentation, and so results in long term recovery.

“Pay attention to who resonates with you.” – Dianne A. Allen (28:43-28:44)

Have the courage to follow the intuition to let go of some of the previous parts of your story. It's so important to help people wake up and move through what's happening in a way that makes sense. Be willing to be free, so you can pursue something higher. 

More Information About Connor Kees

Conner Kees is an acupuncturist, herbalist, intentional healer, and podcaster living in Black Mountain, NC where he owns the holistic healthcare practice Source For Well-Being. His podcast features discussions on alchemy, biophysics, and healing. Conner is also a musician, meditator, and cat dad.

From Stagnation To Progress

From Stagnation To Progress

May 12, 2020

From Stagnation To Progress with Dianne A. Allen

Every single one of us has an inner genius. People often think that the word genius is only meant for brilliant people, but it expands beyond that. Your inner genius is your soul and what your heart wants to bring forward. Every single one of us has a valuable message that we're meant to bring to the world like a gift. The cool thing is all of us have different gifts. All of us have something different to do. So, what is your inner genius? Do you know?

In this week's episode, you'll learn about: 

  • The five phases to leap from stagnation to progress

Part One of ‘From Stagnation to Progress’

You might be a little stuck, or maybe you're feeling stagnant during this quarantine period. We can get stuck in fear, uncertainty, stress, and negativity. This is a time to reflect on how you can begin to make progress toward your goals and toward your heart's desire. How can you be a beneficial presence in the universe? How can you keep moving forward in a way that works? Whatever that looks like. And for each one of us, that's going to look a little different. Your inner genius knows what you're here on earth for. Sometimes it has to do with what you do for a living or a creative pursuit that you enjoy.

 

Be clear on what your inner genius is and how you express that. If you look at your whole life, there was a fuel deeper than what it looked like on the outside. And because things change, the way we express our genius changes over our lifetime.  

Sometimes we have to steer a little bit away from where we want to go. Sometimes we have to change the way we use our strategy so that we can get where we want to go efficiently. Things change. Things move around. Life goes in cycles, seasons, spirals, and all kinds of things happen. So, therefore, when we're going through these phases or steps, or whatever we want to call them, understand that there is a cycle to things. Sometimes it might appear like you're heading away from where you want to go to get enough momentum.

“Allow yourself to expand beyond the limited box of your thinking.” – Dianne A. Allen (16:10-16:15)

Number one is to check out your moments of sudden insight or discovery.

When did the light bulb go off that you even want to make progress in a direction? Or how did you figure out that you're stuck or stagnant? Because if you think you're stuck or stagnant, you probably are on some level. Figure out what's the message behind it? Because exploring things and educating ourselves about what is happening in these moments helps us start to see where the momentum can be to help us make our progress.

Number two, focus on where you're headed. 

You know how athletes are when they're in the zone. Especially if you watch runners or tennis players who are super focused. They're in the zone, and nothing will stop them from heading to where they're going. If you don't have focus, it's hard to get where you're going. If you're struggling with focus, you might want to pay attention to the goal, because if you keep working toward a goal and you're not getting there, then it's time for you to refine the goal a little bit.

Number three is to incubate or allow yourself to overflow with ideas. 

Just like how food flavors have to marry, that's where marinating and coming together. It takes putting all the ingredients together and letting them find their way on an inside level. Focus on the new ideas and the inspirations you get from other people.  

“The more fulfilled you are, the more progress you make.” – Dianne A. Allen (21:28-21:31)

Number four is to allow your insight and your awareness to expand. 

This is a big win because a lot of visionary leaders and smart people tend to overthink. Overthinking puts us in little tiny boxes while restricting our opportunity. We're restricting our excitement. We're restricting the possibilities. The truth is, if we're going to move into making progress and we're going to get unstuck, we want to do precisely the opposite. We want to be expanding. We want to allow our insight, our intuition, and our awareness to open the door of possibilities. The more open we are to other possibilities, the better things are.

Number five is to follow through and let the universe give you feedback. 

In other words, take your action and follow through with what it is that you're led to do. It might be your inspired idea or creative project, whatever that is. We live in an amazing universe that gives us unbelievably great feedback all the time. We're always getting feedback on how we're doing, how we're feeling, what's going on, and the progress toward where we're going like mile markers all the time.

Sometimes the powerful question is, what are you willing to stop doing that's been getting in your way? If you're not ready to drop the old behaviors, it's going to be very difficult to move forward. If you want to be unstuck and want to start making progress, you have to be willing to connect to your inner genius. You're an amazing human being, and hopefully, this inspired you to make progress.

Thriving into the New World with Jason Stein

Thriving into the New World with Jason Stein

“Don't miss the boat. Your best days are ahead.” — Dianne A. Allen (40:40-40:43)

COVID-19 has completely turned this world upside down, leaving everyone confused. Are you overdosing on the news recently, and you're not sure what to do? You can start finding some positive places to be the counterbalance despite all the death tolls so you can guard your gateway — your mind, your body, and your soul.

In this week’s episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Thriving into the New World (with Jason Stein)

Back in 2004, Jason Stein became a professional coach for successful entrepreneurs & small business owners looking for support and accountability in achieving healthy profits, healthy relationships, and a healthy impact.

The disadvantage of overusing Facebook is that sometimes if you're constantly trying to get more information, your body is going to feel heavy. Ultimately, they've proven that it lowers the immune system; it increases depression and anxiety. It's time to take back your attention because the internet wants to pull it away and use it against you.

“Let's live sustainably and help the world be a healthier place.” – Jason Stein (45:54-45:57)

If you've always wanted a daily grounding practice or if you already have one, it's time to take it deeper. That could be yoga, sun salutations, mindfulness meditation, or prayer. You can start with five to ten minutes a day. But do it every day, and you will slowly, even within twenty-one to thirty days, you're going to notice a shift in your body. You have to get your body moving during the quarantine since there are billions of home workouts online right now. You can create your own. And if you stop moving your body, things like fear and pain stagnates.

There's a massive increase in stress eating going on right now. If you can take back your immunity and not wait for someone else to boost it up, your odds are going to be so much better. Meditation and grounding practices and mindfulness raise our immune system because it lowers the fear, which is more established and well known.

It's highly advisable to grow a little garden and have some greens in there. Some of the foods that are going to be best for you are those green leafy vegetables. You want to avoid processed foods, which isn't rocket science. We hear it all the time. 

The crazy thing is that the diet industry is a billion moving to a trillion-dollar business. But if you look at the stats, the evidence isn't there that it's helpful at all. Let's take this time to go back to the basics like drink water or breathe deeper breaths. Things can change so much with water and breath. So, if you keep replacing stuff with what's better, the body is going to feel more nourished.

 

Let's focus on behavior modification rather than what we should be doing. You should be eating healthier. You should be improving your body a little bit more. You should be sleeping more at night and unplug your phone or your computer.

 

“You can make a difference.” – Dianne A. Allen (47:36-47:37)

Make a list of all the things you've been thinking about and reclaim it for yourself. We thrive by dialing into who we are on the inside and letting it show up on the outside. We have to get into communities that support that part of us. We're into a mental game right now, so we have to break that imprisonment, and we have to toughen up a little bit.

If you're someone who thinks that there's no solution to all the things happening right now, like it's all doom and gloom, you're missing the boat. You must realize that this could be the turning point for you to have your best life ever. Maybe you have less money than you have, but we all experience hardships, but it doesn't have to take us out. It should teach us how to be more durable and serve as an invitation to step up. Remember, keep your face to the sun, so the shadows fall behind you because you're a rock star, and you're here on earth for a great purpose.
