1. What Your Karma Has to Do With Your Destiny

Vishen’s aunt has been on his case for so long about bringing Sadhguru to Mindvalley. And for that, we’d like to thank her. Because in this sitdown, you get to learn more about the most overused and misunderstood words in our vocabulary — karma — and what it has to do with your destiny.

Karma, unfortunately, has gotten a bad rap. Many of us relate it to payback, but now, it’s time to clear up its reputation.

Karma does not mean that you did good or bad,” says Sadhguru, a yogi, mystic, visionary, one of the 50 most influential people in India, and a New York Times bestselling author.

He explains that you are essentially a product of your environment — your actions in mind, emotions, physical, and energy passes through generation after generation (as one particular study by Emory University shows) and the residual impact of that is karma.

But you aren’t your ancestors. For you to live a life where the beliefs of your family don’t dictate your destiny, it’s important to embrace the “richness of your karma” and use it to enhance the quality of your life.

Karma is not about control,” says Sadhguru. “Karma is about liberation.”

2. The Snooze You Don’t Lose

Sleep doesn’t always come easy for everyone and research has shown how the lack of it negatively impacts your health.

But don’t you feel you’ve heard it all? Don’t play on your phone, turn off all the lights, get regular exercise… Additionally, according to sleep expert and coach for Mindvalley’s The Mastery of Sleep Quest, Dr. Michael Breus, “it is simply never a good idea to eat in the middle of the night.”

In this episode on The Mindvalley Podcast, Dr. Breus will teach you exactly the best time to go to bed, wake up, drink caffeine, drink alcohol, and exercise — all based on your genetics. With his 5-step easy-to-remember program, you’ll learn five things to do during the day and eight things to do at night to get better sleep in order to be a better you.

3. Your Mind on Your Money and Your Money on Your Mind

There are dozens of negative beliefs surrounding money, some of which we don’t even recognize as negative. These include:

  • Pursuing money is bad, or only bad people pursue money.
  • Wealthy people are essentially spiritually bankrupt.
  • You have to work hard for money.
  • Money causes stress and sickness.
  • There’s not enough of it to go around.

Au contraire. An abundance of money is a good thing if you’re willing to change your mindset. 

You having wealth does not take away from others having wealth,” says Marisa Peer, leading celebrity therapist and coach of Mindvalley’s Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance Quest.

Tune into this episode on The Mindvalley Podcast to understand how your money mindset is blocking you from your abundance. How do you unblock it? Marisa will show you how.

4. Don’t Struggle With Anxiety in Silence

It’s no secret that we’re living in a time when our patience is being tested left, right, and center. Not only is the ongoing pandemic causing feelings of anxiety and loneliness, but the extreme climate changes, political conflicts, and racial injustices are like a pickle in your cheeseburger that you specifically requested to not add in.

Don’t worry, friend, because you’re not alone. 

We have to go back to being collective; to reaching out to each other to be able to conquer that existential loneliness that we’re feeling,” says Sarah Wilson, former journalist and TV presenter, activist, and New York Times bestselling author.

In this episode of Superhumans At Work, Sarah sits in with host Jason Marc Campbell to share a series of ‘wildly awake’ and joyful practices for reconnecting again.

5. What’s Your Problem Anyway?

If there was a problem, yo’ Vanilla Ice will solve it… if only. (Sorry, Gen Z. That one’s for the Millennials.)

But Gumby hairstyle and 90’s baggy pants aside, there is one saying that everyone would understand: “for every problem, there’s a solution.” And if you find it impossible to solve that problem, it only means that you have yet to find the solution. According to Kristen Cox, author, and co-founder of The Fulcrum, “a problem is only a problem within the context of the goal.”

This multifaceted expert problem solver joins Jason in this episode of Superhumans At Work to discuss:

  • How to identify the right problem
  • Set an appropriate objective to solve it
  • Avoid solutions that not only won’t work, but also can make the problem worse

  • How to find the right solution to our company’s problems.
