EP157 How to Clear the Static in your Mind & Tune in to Hear the Beautiful Music
In this episode, I help you learn how to clear the noise and clutter that’s racing through your mind and mentally focus on your spiritual energy.
KC: Welcome to the Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. And today, I want to talk about tuning in to the radio frequency. So tuning in with your own spirituality, with your own connection to God or Buddha or Allah or universal energy or intuition, whatever that power is that we call it.
And the way this was taught to me, if you’ve ever taken a yoga class or if you’ve ever done some really intense exercise or if you’ve ever been in something that you’re doing that you totally get engulfed in, what happens is the noise of the day, the noise of the chatter in your mind slows down and you become really focused, right?
For me, the first time I really, really experienced this was with a yoga class when I went through a vigorous Vinyasa yoga class. And at the end of that class, my mind was clear, my eyes were clear. The chatter, the static in my mind had slowed down almost to a stop. And it’s really like that. It’s like tuning in that radio.
So when we’re between stations, it’s really static-y and we can’t hear. Then we can tune it in and it plays beautiful music. And that’s what a spiritual practice is for me. That’s what I believe it is. That’s what our work is as we, throughout our days, we accumulate all this stuff and our minds just – it’s chattering and it’s going and it has all of this noise going on in it.
And through a spiritual practice whether it would be religion through church, whether it would be, some people, their spiritual practice is yoga. Some people it’s meditation or Buddhism. Some people – I have a friend, Greg, his spiritual practice is mountain biking.
But tuning in, tuning in that station and quieting the mind, and that’s a practice and it’s a daily practice because then the mind starts chattering again then we have to continue to tune it in. And we have to think about it like that radio. That radio always gets bumped. That radio always gets twisted a little bit.
And our job is to continually tune it back in, tune it back in, tune it back in. I believe this is one of the most important things we do in our life. Because if we’re in the static, we don’t have the ability to be husbands and wives and parents and friends and sons and daughters to the best of our ability, leaders, community members.
When we first focus on tuning in, tuning in, tuning in when we go out into the world to do our life and our work, we’re so much more productive, we’re so much clear.
So yeah, just wanted to share that with you. Continually focus on having a practice of tuning in your radio. So have a beautiful, beautiful day. Hopefully, that tuned you in a little bit for today and you’re off and running and your mind is going to wander, it’s going to get into that static-y place. But have your practice to bring yourself back.
Have a beautiful day. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
