Service Leadership with Shireen Janti

Service Leadership with Shireen Janti

September 14, 2021

A true servant leader stands up for those who may not have a strong enough voice to stand up for themselves. In an inspiring episode with Shireen Janti, Sr. Director of MusiCares and a licensed counselor for 30 years, we talk about what it means to be gifted, overcome addiction and recovery, being a person of service, and becoming a true leader with boundaries. 

 

Key points covered in this episode:

 

✔️  We all struggle in some way internally. As a woman in recovery from alcoholism and addiction and 32 years sober, Shireen shares how putting out her story has helped many men and women win in life. "Being a leader is not only having the courage to share my story, regardless of what it may sound or look like, irrespective of what you may think or judge me about me. Learning how to be a leader is being secure and strong with your decisions, even if you're unsure. But it feels right; you do it anyway. And then there may be a lesson in that."

 

 ✔️ MusiCares tirelessly work as "The Red Cross for the music community." Everyone affiliated with music faces economic and mental challenges due to the coronavirus crisis. "Many people aren't necessarily alcoholics or addicts, but they started drinking more or taking three prescription pills more, or it's gotten out of control where they need help to get back into alignment with themselves. We are there for them."

 

✔️ There are ways that you can serve others without getting lost. Take care of your boundaries because you don't want to get stressed and burned out because that doesn't work. You teach people how to treat you, and you get the behavior you tolerate, so learn how to say NO and be OK with that.

 

✔️'Who am I, and what do I stand for?' Sometimes we need to be asked to really think that through and remember we all are worthy and that we all matter, regardless of where we came from, what we've done, and what mistakes we made. 

 

Shireen Janti has been a force in the field of Chemical Dependency for over 32 years. Her credentials include obtaining her (LAADC) Licensed Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, (CRPS) Certified Relapse Prevention Specialist, and her certification as a Professional Life Coach. 

 

Shireen joined the MusiCares team in 2004, which is the charitable arm of the Recording Academy, otherwise known as the GRAMMYS. She started in the role of an Addiction Recovery Specialist. With hard work, commitment, and tenacity, she moved up the ranks into the title of Senior Director, which she proudly holds today. Shireen manages and facilitates all facets and services that MusiCares provides, including health and human services, addiction recovery assessment, referral, and case management. 

 

Shireen has received awards such as the "Gratitude for Giving"-Sierra Tucson 2010, "Distinguished Service In the Field Of Recovery"-Promises Foundation Miriam's House Polo in the Palisades 2016, the "Visionary Award" at the CCAPP Convention 2016, and the WAAT Woman's Association of Addiction Treatment (Victoria Smart) Award in 2019.

Gifted Multi-Potentialities with Andrea Whitt

Gifted Multi-Potentialities with Andrea Whitt

September 7, 2021

Are you stuck in a rut or have so many dreams you don't know how to get started doing? In this insightful conversation with Andrea Whitt, she shares what it's like marrying her greatest passions into a fulfilled life. 

As an international touring and recording music artist, painter, and fashion designer, she lets us in how you too can get over a creative rut, develop a daily discipline, and sustain enthusiasm for the many things you want to do 24/7!

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️  Your gut will always lead you in the best direction. This is how Andrea Whitt made decisions in her life, which led her to become one of the world's very few and brilliant pedal steel guitar players. 

✔️  Find ways to stretch and challenge yourself regularly. Not doing this is the biggest reason why you find yourself in a creative rut. There's a whole menu of things to get excited about that will light a new fire and help keep you going. 

✔️ You're different, but you're "cool different"! I'm sure you made choices that others questioned as strange and impractical. We all might be a little different, but we're "cool different"! It is never wrong to follow what your intuition or your gut will say while others choose to override their purpose and passion with their mind.

Andrea Whitt is an international touring and recording artist. She performs on viola, fiddle, and pedal steel guitar, plays alongside Italian artist Zucchero, performs with 'Acid Americana' duo Katie & Andrea, and toured with Shania Twain. 

Andrea recorded on Grammy award-winning albums and has performed and recorded with dozens of other musicians, including Kamasi Washington, Kendrick Lamar, Deep Purple, Stevie Wonder, and Phil Lesh.

She started Bohemian Bunnie, born from her passion for art, style, and music. Painting since the age of two and hoarding clothes since before she can remember, Bohemian Bunnie celebrates the intertwining of all of the arts. With Andrea's international touring schedule, Bohemian Bunnie has become a creative journey overseas and has been acclaimed in media and publications such as E! News, Brit + Co, and Marie Claire Taiwan.

6 Quick Ways to Reset Your Brain

6 Quick Ways to Reset Your Brain

August 31, 2021

Do you get cattywampus and disharmonized during the day, decision fatigue, or experience the brain doesn't seem to work the way you want it to?

In this episode, glean six easy ways to reset, get going so you feel better, and come back around with vigor and joy. I cover the ones that I most recommend that I find extremely useful for the people I work with and use them myself. 

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️  Humming throughout the day, especially if you're in a traffic jam or there's a lot of stress, will help remind the nervous system it's going to be OK. It can be any song or made-up tune; it doesn't matter. The humming vibration helps unify the vagus nerve, calm the system, and get everybody back in gear again. 

✔️ Stop, close your eyes, take your hands off the keyboard. Just give yourself a couple of minutes reprieve, breathing, closing your eyes, and visually decreasing the stimulus. We remind our nervous system in our biology to rest and keep going. 

✔️ Progressive relaxation means you squeeze a muscle group, and you relax it. Doing so gets the bad blood pumping and the interstitial fluid moving. We remind ourselves that a relaxed state and a tense state in our body have permission to relax, let go, and release. 

✔️ Just breathe. Most people are breathing a little bit from the top of their chest instead of their belly, while most people hold their breath a lot, resulting in being in pain physically and emotionally.

✔️Count backwards from ten to one slowly with each exhale. When you open your eyes, you become calmer, and your brain processes better. Creativity gets better, and most importantly, my physiology and my neurology become more harmonized.

✔️ Move your body. When we cross our centerline, natural movement and simple exercises remind our right and left hemispheres of our brain to come together and cooperate and communicate.

The Genius of Roger “Hurricane” Wilson

The Genius of Roger “Hurricane” Wilson

August 24, 2021

In this episode, I am pleased to share the screen with one of the most impactful guitar players who has molded hundreds to love and excel in the craft. Meet Roger "Hurricane" Wilson; the more you get to know him, the more you understand why he has an accurate moniker for his fantastic career and how his passion and purpose continue in all these decades. 

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Roger shares his journey of first picking up the guitar at age 9 and started learning note by note, falling hard for rock and roll, and he never looked back.

✔️ He shares one unforgettable remark from a young student that stuck to him. The critical thing was to "have some fun." With music and everything else in life, something more amazing comes out when we're letting ourselves enjoy our gifts.

✔️ From teaching, building the chops to learning to write the songs and figuring out where the history comes from, Roger had his share of being discouraged from"doing this musician thing."

✔️ Roger shares how the fame and rockstar lifestyle can go to a person's head many times, but he stood by the belief that humility is the best virtue and there's always going to be somebody better who can come along. "There's nothing wrong with being proud of what you do and everything; just don't let it get to your head." 

✔️ His moniker "Hurricane" was him getting in and out of joints and gigs fast as a passionate musician. "I love playing guitar, and I don't care if anybody is listening or not."

✔️ At age 68, there's more to be done by the Hurricane. "Think about what you're going to leave behind — that's more about it now than anything else." 

 

Roger "Hurricane" Wilson has been playing guitar since 1963 and performing professionally since 1972 in his own band, as a solo artist at home, and on the road. From 1973 to 1985, he owned and operated the brick-and-mortar location of the Roger Wilson Guitar Studio in Atlanta, Georgia, which still operates online today. It was during this time that he taught hundreds of students basic and advanced guitar styles. He has also worked as a radio DJ, music journalist, and broadcaster. In addition, he has been a judge for the  International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, as well as being a 2015 Oklahoma Blues Hall of Fame Inductee. To date, he has released over 25 albums and toured over a million miles. Wilson started playing professionally in 1972, and he has jammed with Les Paul, Hubert Sumlin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert Collins, Roy Buchanan, Savoy Brown, Magic Slim, Michael Burks, and Charlie Musselwhite. He has also shared the stage with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Little Milton, John Mayall, Marcia Ball, Delbert McClinton, Taj Mahal, Leon Russell, and Edgar Winter.

Freedom to Create - Creativity is Essential for Evolution with Dianne A. Allen

Freedom to Create - Creativity is Essential for Evolution with Dianne A. Allen

August 17, 2021

When I was in third grade, I designed an art project differently from what my teacher wanted. She told me that I am not creative. I believed her because she was an authority figure. Many years down the road, I lived buying into that lie and missed out on many things. Until one day, my client, a musician, said, "whoa, hold on a second here. You're really creative!" and pointed out what he could see. Then I remembered that remark from my teacher, realizing that it did not do me any good and how it stunted me on one level for a long time. 

 

Is there someone similar in your life who bogged you down? This episode will remind you why creativity is innate in all of us and how it is a human drive necessary for our personal evolution. While we are still breathing air, all of us are here on this planet to CREATE. 

Key points covered in this episode:

✔️ Whether it's conceiving music, art, or children and turning thoughts and words into action — every single day is all part of our innate yearning and ability to make and produce. If we give ourselves more freedom, we could create much better solutions for the challenges of this world. 

 

✔️ Go into the deep and inner places inside of you and bring your creativity forward — take courage to pursue your gifts and allow what's within to emerge as a beautiful fountain of light and greatness that will benefit the world. 

 

✔️ Creative people need to pay attention to burnout, overwhelm, and inner turmoil. These are what I call the "staticky things." 

 

Make it a priority to set time for creative rest and downtime, so you have a way to nurture and fill up your inner resources, and you're giving from your overflow.

 

✔️  Release yourself from the addiction to the outcome and permit yourself to flow toward the grander vision because as we grow, we invite everyone around us to grow, too. 

 

✔️ How often do you take action to pursue expansion physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually? The rewards are like no other when you commit to your personal development.

 

✔️ Say YES to healing the wounds so that you can experience freedom. 

 When you accept all aspects of yourself and choose to heal the wounds — you will experience freedom and move forward into your expanded evolution and be the beneficial presence on this planet that you are meant to be.

Why Normal Is Not Healthy by Dianne A. Allen

Why Normal Is Not Healthy by Dianne A. Allen

August 10, 2021

The word "normal" showed up in the English language because of the Industrial Revolution, when it was all about standardizing things for mass production. We were sold the idea and the belief that progress meant systematizing products, services, and even people. In 2021, I believe that humanity has used up the values of "normal" and "standard" and has proven to be invalid in many ways over the last many years.

 

In this episode, understand why this continuing culture remains a big issue. Not speaking against the definition of normal that society accepts will continue to harbor divisiveness, hate, and judgment.

 

Key points covered in this episode:

 

✔️ Working in the mental health, addiction, personal development, and mentoring world for 40 years — I have seen how giftedness is misunderstood and how gifted children who receive negative attitudes from society suffer throughout their lives.

 

✔️ Standardized testing has shown nothing of great value in the last decades in correlation to a student's true giftedness or future career outcomes. The problem is we have tried to standardize humans like we standardize machines, and humans are not machines.  

 

✔️  Trying to be normal is not healthy.  Forcing yourself to fit into the norm or inside the box because it's not healthy, and it's not how humans are made.

 

✔️  We live in a culture that only talks about what's wrong. We don't talk about what's good or what's right or what people's gifts are, or how to use them.

 

✔️  Never apply the word normal to any human being because no one is a machine. We are real, authentic, and unique beings. I advocate for geeky gifted people who don't fit into the mold and the creative geniuses trying to translate big visions into this human world.

 

✔️ Unity is not sameness — unity is coming together. We can be very diverse and still unite. It's time we start treating each other with respect, coming out of our fighting corners, and realizing that everyone has value.

 

✔️  Your diversity is needed, desired, and the perfect, authentic gift that only you can bring to the world. Stop playing small and being a best-kept secret.

Overthinking - What Causes It And How To Overcome

Overthinking - What Causes It And How To Overcome

August 3, 2021

There are so many dangers to overthinking, and sometimes people think it's just part of the stress in the world. Overthinking becomes a compulsion and addiction. The only way to break it is to keep putting different kinds of interjections and pattern interrupts so that it can't keep running our lives. As humans, we are designed biologically and neurologically to deal with short-term stress and live with more rest in harmony—quite the opposite of our current culture. 

In this episode, overthink no more and learn how to master and overcome the monkey mind going around in your head overcome the constant chatter that impairs your happiness, success, and ultimate fulfillment. 

Essential points covered in this episode: 

✔️ Poor sleep is one of the biggest dangers of overthinking. There's tons of research emphasizing the importance of rest, especially for those of us who are intensely sensitive. If you are not sleeping right, you diminish your health and function.

✔️ Overthinking can create headaches. You experience getting them in the back of your neck or the back of your head. Headaches serve as a signal that you need to take a break on the inside.

✔️ Overthinking can come from living in fear, whether you are afraid of failure or success, and other unconscious belief systems that lead to self-sabotage. 

✔️ Analysis paralysis results from thinking too much and end up freezing yourself with your thinking. And so, when we get caught in this trap, we end up deadening our ability to problem solve and connect with people. 

✔️  When we're overthinking, we're walking around like a stick with a head. The danger of overthinking results in stiffness in the body. You want to have flexibility in your body so your muscles will move and you can feel good. You are creating more rigidity results in more disconnection from living in the moment.

✔️ A weary mind leads to a tired body.  Fatigue and all of its ways, compassion fatigue, decision fatigue, and physical tiredness result in overthinking. It takes a lot of energy to keep overthinking, and so is it worth it? We exhaust our nervous system that can get dysfunctional, and experience side effects.

✔️  Release the obsession and the compulsion of always to be thinking. When we're overthinking the future and the past, we're missing out on the many beautiful and glorious aspects of life. 

✔️  The best way to help get rid of the overthinking is to create.  Letting the creative part of you out creates balance in your nervous system, your digestion, lowers your blood pressure, and relaxes your jaw and the tension in your shoulders. So it's so important to let the creativity out, whether it's journaling, scribbling, or making sports, music, art, or dance. 

✔️  When we keep so much junk in our head that there's no room for love or joy or happiness, we have totally undermined the purpose of our mind. 

✔️  Meditate, journal and love on yourself — there are lots of things we can do without screens. Do not allow yourself to be constantly distracted by every notification on your computer or phone. Turn them off so you can check at your leisure when you schedule it, not when it dings to you.

Bring Your Dreams into Reality with Raven Harris

Bring Your Dreams into Reality with Raven Harris

July 27, 2021

The phrase "You Only Live Once" or YOLOing has been alluded to making impulse triggered decisions and risky actions, especially in younger people. After living through the devastation of 2020, this aphorism seemingly fueled many of us to rethink our priorities and what brings us joy and meaning. 

One who tells a breakthrough story from the pandemic is Raven Harris. She was an accomplished woman and served as the COO of a critical illness recovery hospital in her 20s. However, after getting the persistent heart tugs, she finally took the jump, resigned from her job and started her consulting agency to help young professionals achieve clarity of purpose and build the life they love. 

 

Essential points covered in this episode: 

 

✔️ Often when we face death in the face, we begin to see things in a whole new light. Raven Harris shares that working at a hospital was a gift given to her, "having a front-row seat seeing people cross over so that when it's my time, I can say I lived full, and I died empty." 

 

✔️ Are you a part of the 85% of the millions of people in the world that are unhappy in their jobs? Speaker, strategist and leadership mentor Raven Harris reminds us that it may be cliche, but know that there can be more to life for you than just existing. Find what truly makes your heart sing. "When you are in your zone, locked in your sweet spot, it shows — everyone can feel it, and you can feel it. There's a different level of satisfaction that people have when they go back to the core that brings you inner joy."

 

✔️  Do not discredit the season you're in now — it may just be the necessary experience you need to be prepared for the next obstacle or the next opportunity that will come in your journey.

 

✔️ Unless you take action to bring that VISION INTO REALITY, it will keep knocking on your door, showing up when you least expect and keep coming back tugging at your heartstrings until you finally say YES. Why? Because your purpose is for you to do and nobody else. 

 

✔️ A lot of us have allowed the outside noise to almost kill our dreams. So how do we rediscover it? Your inner guide knows the path that's right for you but denying it long enough may have numbed you from leaning in well. Achieve the transformation that you want by seeking help from people who can see the greatness in you and can provide you with a level of comfort and peace that it's ok to go in the direction of your dreams.

 

About Raven Harris

Raven is the founder and CEO of Activate the Dream, a leadership solutions company. She works with people and organizations to enhance and elevate the personal and professional leadership skills of new and emerging leaders. Through her signature coaching experience, she equips high achievers with the techniques and tools to achieve career and life success.

Sensitivity and Intuition in the Gifted with Amy Estersohn

Sensitivity and Intuition in the Gifted with Amy Estersohn

July 20, 2021

Join us for another value-packed episode of Someone Gets Me! Dianne A Allen shares an insightful discussion with exceptional and gifted educator Amy Estersohn.

What is it like to be a sensitive, gifted person? How do you handle your thoughts and use them to be of service to others?

Essential points covered in this episode:

✔️ Learn to listen to your intuition. How many times have we shut down something and then looked back and figured that wasn't the best move, or we paid a negative price in some way or another?

✔️ Intuition is the highest form of intelligence. It's true for all of us and even for people who don't recognize it. Get to know better about your reactions from the gut-level and energy levels.

✔️ In William Shakespeare's "Hamlet," Amy posits that the great playwright teaches an essential lesson in balancing practicality and intuition. "Don't be like Hamlet, don't be so in love or ever trusting of your visions and insights that you forget to observe your world. Don't forget to use data. Don't forget to use the scientific method. Don't forget to be grounded. Use that as a lesson that one can't be too intuitive, spiritual, and too woo-woo and ruin common sense."

✔️ Understand that it can be difficult when our egos get in the way of our intuition very often.

✔️ As gifted people, you should use your intuition as an asset, not for your well-being but to increase greater harmony in the world.

 ✔️ In today's context,  it makes a difference to pay attention and use your discernment. Think through, feel through and sense through what will be your right move in every scenario.

✔️ Sensitive people get over-involved when they want to help the person more than they want to help themselves. Set up boundaries because you can't be fixing other people's problems when they don't even participate in solving them.

✔️ Use your gift to help others put words to the unique person they are. Be able to hold up a mirror to somebody and say, here's what you've done, and here are the talents I see in you.

About Amy Estersohn

Amy Estersohn supports creative, intense, and stubborn teens with college and career guidance. She has worked with teen inventors, composers, actors, software developers, and entrepreneurs who also struggle with perfectionism, organization, time management, and anxiety. Through an emphasis on college selection and college essay development, she helps teens see themselves and their talents meaningfully and authentically.

Amy's background includes working as an Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Chicago. She partnered with Chicago's Office of Career Advancement to review resumes and provide job application coaching.

Being Intense, Intuitive, and Introverted with Dianne A. Allen

Being Intense, Intuitive, and Introverted with Dianne A. Allen

July 13, 2021

WOW! Finally, the big 2-0-0 comes around! Can you believe it? 🎉🎉🎉  We celebrate the 200th episode as we press on to reach every visionary and gifted person to grow, transform and enjoy the benefits of having a community and a mentor. Finally, you can joyfully say: "someone gets me!". 

In this special episode, I'm talking about the #1 problem that highly sensitive, intuitive, and introverted individuals face and how to overcome it and live an AMAZING life! 

What You Will Discover: 

✔️ The reason why an intense person often means getting misunderstood.  I'm talking about a level of intensity where perhaps you could compare it to most people watching a black and white little TV while we're walking around in 3D surround sound cranked up. We feel our emotions very, very, very intensely. 

✔️ From working with hundreds of gifted, highly sensitive, intense, and introverted individuals, confusion is the biggest roadblock that stops them from realizing their fullest potential.

✔️ Why it's remarkably interesting to be this way, it can also be really tricky to navigate. So it's not just about research or diagnosis, but by unpacking these experiences in a practical, everyday sense and learning how to harness these gifts and live right. 

✔️ Understand that you know better than anyone else about you, your life, mission, and vision! So when somebody tries to tell you otherwise, even if they love you and care about you, they may be projecting their fears on you. 

✔️ Just take the first step, and the universe comes right in and gives you feedback. Whether it says "keep going" or "make an adjustment." Either way, you have your feedback. So move and stop at nothing.

✔️ Having the gift of intuition is one thing. Understanding and using it for your good is a whole other conversation.  

Learn the basic skills to manage it, make friends with that part of you, and stand in your authority with it.

✔️ Intensity, introversion, and intuition braided together make a powerful and more amazing life experience. 

The value of these gifts elevates that ability to see differently and discern questions that serve you, me, and the whole world.

✔️ Know who you are and live that because trying to live somebody else's dream doesn't work. Understand that it's ok to be you and unlock how to maximize working with those people different from you. This episode will change how you think about your unique gifts.
