Higher Brain Living: Neuroscience’s Revolutionary Breakthrough – with Craig Polsfuss (by Heidi Hornlein)

In the last few decades neuroscience has made huge progress. We know today so many things about how our brain functions and why certain methods and practices can influence our brains. The eastern meditative traditions knew much of that intuitively from direct experience, now our western science “catches up” and shows us the material events happening in our brains when change  happens. And we want to change our lives towards the better, don’t we? So we need to find a way to influence our mindsets we are living in. As most of it is unconscious, we cannot do it just by DECIDING to do so and use our WILL power. Transformation happens on a deeper level and we need to be guided on our way. We need to learn to live on “higher vibrations”, as we often hear in the New Age scene. How do we do it?

In this weeks episode we have invited +Craig Polsfuss who is engaged in higher brain living and will introduce you to this amazing approach to realizing our higher potential.

About Higher Brain Living:
After 30 years of researching modern science and ancient wisdom, Dr. Michael Cotton discovered a mind-body “touch point” code that opens and completes mind-brain circuitry for optimal health and functioning.
No other known method produces such a powerful organic energy surge to the pre-frontal cortex – the most highly evolved part of the brain made for change and high-end experience, functioning and consciousness.
Higher Brain Living amplifies all other productive practices, like meditation, yoga, fitness, etc.

Craig PolsfussAbout +Craig Polsfuss
He is holistic psychologist and Director of Professional Outreach & Education for Higher Brain Living, will introduce and discuss this profound advancement. Change agents looking for the next level of transformation – personally, professionally and globally – should especially attend.

“Each person is far more than they realize. My aim is to help awaken those interested to a living realization of this, and an opportunity to join a growing team of others doing the same.” Craig Polsfuss

How Can YOUR Thoughts Manifest? – with Ken Elliott

Imagine you could think about something you want to have in your life – and it comes into existence. Did that ever happen to you? And why do you think this can happen – and will happen if we use thought in the right way?

If you don’t believe in “those things” or don’t know how to explain them to yourself,listen to the recording of our show with our special guest Ken Elliott. He has written a book about it explaining this phenomenon in detail. His insights have the power to change your view of the world and what is possible for you.

Ken Elliott is an award winning, bestselling author & artist who has been on showcased on media all over the world. Ken has learned how to manifest items both big and small, first creating his desires on the Other Side and watching those thoughts take form in our physical world. Ken is living a life that many call “magical and miraculous.  Over the last 20+ years Ken has been teaching others these simple techniques so they can create the life that they desire.

Ken says:
Ken Elliot

As a person that grew up in the art business, I have certainly seen and have developed a good understanding of art in a market context. As someone who was selling art I saw firsthand the joy and life-changing capabilities that art can bring to us including the buyer.

Later I went from being an art dealer to be coming an artist, and after years of remarkable experiences, I published a book on manifesting with new information about how thoughts actually take form. It is knowledge that is revolutionizing the field.

I feel I have a magical life making art and helping people create beautiful changes in their lives.

Personally I have used manifesting to improve my career and those of other artists and in the most magical ways.  I have learned to apply creative concepts as a painter to creatively build the lives we desire.

FUN is what makes LIFE WORTH LIVING – by Heidi Hornlein


Or, saying it the other way round: A life without FUN is NOT WORTH LIVING.

You might have many reasons why your life is worth living – and so do I, of course. Among them work, passion, mission, family, ideas, projects, relationships, love, nature….. All the things which we LIKE in our lives, which we try to expand and enjoy more and more.

And it is not always FUN to do that.

In the times where we cannot get FUN out of what we like doing then we need some inspiration to bring back the fun energy which lifts us up and makes things easier and lighter. Otherwise we end up disliking doing what at the bottom of our hearts we REALLY like because it became heavy and burdensome.

And here is the invitation to explore FUN together with us in the FUN & RELAXATION CHALLENGE online August 9-16.

We will propose some games and interactions which can bring back this fun-energy to you and expand it into curiosity and inspiration. You can watch on your device – or you can be live with us on video and bring in your suggestions about how to bring back fun into our lives that helps make it worth living!

Living Abroad – Why Would YOU Do That? (by Heidi Hornlein)

The times are over when you were born and lived in the same place for your whole life*. Only a century ago going to live in a place in only 50 km distance was a big deal. And today? Many of us are born in one country and live in other countries thousands of miles away.
*Why do we do that*? What is the motive behind this decision? What do we believe to leave behind us when we begin afresh in a different country, with a different language, a different culture all together? And what do we hope to find there which is different from what we think to find at home?

We have invited +Ana Hoffman   who came from Russia to live in the US, +Margherita Crystal Lotus  comes from Sweden and lives in Canada and +Adelheid Hörnlein  comes from Germany and lives in Italy. Together we want to explore why we did this step and why we are still in the other country. Would we ever go back “home”? – WHERE IS HOME? We have become Cosmopolitans where the WORLD is HOME?

Watch this video especially when you dream about going to live in a different country than that where you have grown up. And you who have no intent to leave your country – maybe you will find some more reasons for staying where you are or some inspiration for trying something different.

Degrees in English Literature and Secondary Education preceded a Masters degree in Italian Literature from the University of Wisconsin.

Listening and Silence is a practice

Listening and Silence:


What can Silence can do for your Listening experience?

Stefan Levin1The pause in the constant chatter will interrupt the mind far more effective than increasing the volume. To create transformative music the silence is the best tool to present the carefully paced notes. In this episode, Swedish composer Stefan Levin is interviewed where we discuss what and how silence affects the experience of listening.

Stefan Levin’s is a prolific creator of performance and ballet music, music for film, and other works in a style he calls “Nordic Noir”.  His compositions has an international following, and recently been performed in New York, Havana, Amsterdam and Venice.

Mental & Emotional First Aid: a 7-Step System to Transform Difficult Emotions

k10772027We are living in a very special time where old things fall apart and new ones try to emerge. It seems like the world has become crazy, sometimes, when we watch the news and all the awful things which happen all over the place. Fundamentalists try to stop the world from evolving, on the other hand the cyber-fans envision a world of robots and artificial intelligence where humans are not that any more what they are now.
Both groups – and many others – work with a mix of hyper-excitement and profound fear which often shows up in physical or psychological violence – to themselves and to others.

Humanity has gained huge knowledge about the world and has invented an incredible amount of fantastic things. But as a species we have not yet learnt to handle our emotions adequately and to become able to be in service of the greater good

Sure, some individuals have acquired emotional intelligence which allows them to live their life fully without being dominated by their own emotional conditions. But for to create peace in the world it is absolutely necessary that MANY of us learn to have a healthy emotional life, not to indulge in our emotions and be driven by them and also not to shut down our emotions for not feeling them any more. Both ways have led us into the present disasters.

We really need to find new ways to get into contact with ourselves and to become stewards of our own emotions in order to use them for our mission in the world in a positive way.

CroppedTeeMingHeadshotOur guest in this week’s show is Tee Ming Ooi, an expert in the field of personal growth and development.
She will share with you how to do “FIRST AID” when difficult emotions arise. She will lead you through her 7 steps of Transformation and also talk about WHY this system works.

Tee Ming Ooi is the creator of the Mental and Emotional First Aid Method and an intrepid explorer of the mind-body-spirit connections. She enthusiastically shares her discoveries, knowledge and experiences through being a transformational life coach, wellness workshop leader, “The Splendid Life Show” web TV producer and host, author of “5 Minutes to Less Stress”, and “Splendid Business and Life” digital magazine publisher.
